* SassyBlackWoman: A lighthearted version of this which shows up when Marauder [[CrowningMomentOfFunny has you deliver flowers to her.]] Depending on how you go about it, she can either have a heck of a laugh or get ticked off - see ShootTheMessenger for details on the latter.

* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: Having no parents and being born before meta-human rights were a thing gave the US government opportunity to enroll a psychic-powered little girl in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII without needing to worry about humanitarian concerns.



* SecretRelationship: Very strongly implied in the background lore between him and his side-kick, Mynx. All we know is that the two have spent nights together, we don't know doing what, and Synapse get's super evasive about it. Whether it is over the side-kick hero relationship or perceived hang-ups about furries is anyone's guess since he will not talk about it..



* WolverineClaws

to:

* WolverineClawsLittleBitBeastly: Though supposedly genetically altered, Mynx's cat features are so glaring compared to her otherwise human form, it looks like she is just wearing props.
* SecretRelationship: '''Strongly''' implied between her and Synapse.
* WolverineClaws/FemmeFatalons: With the former being in the game and the later being in the comic.




to:

* DeathByOriginStory: Almost literally. Her parents were attacked and carried off specifically to get to the magical assets they were sitting on - their magical prodigy daughter of-course being the most valuable to them.
* DeceasedParentsAreTheBest: Technically both parents are just " [[HesJustHiding missing]]". Super-powers and missing parents are her central motivation for fighting crime.



* KnightOfCerebus: Mako does not "defeat" people - he unambiguously kills them. Furthermore the devs went out of the way to portray Mako less as a comic-book super-villain, than as a slash-murderer who just happened to have super-powers.



* ParentalAbandonment: The reason he wound up in an OrphanageOfFear was his parents abandoned him when they saw he was born a mutant.



* TheStarscream: He has every intention of taking down Lord Recluse and taking over the Rogue Isles himself once he gets powerful enough. What's more, everyone including Lord Recluse knows this. Lord Recluse keeps Mako around half for Mako's skills and half to keep himself on his toes.

* WhereIWasBornAndRazed: Little Gideon Ray eventually snapped and butchered the rest of his orphanage for tormenting him for being a mutant.

Added DiffLines:

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: If you are a Resistance mole,[[spoiler: her hit on you can feel like this. As both of you were in the dark about the other, either both your covers are blown or she dies so you can infiltrate deeper into the Loyalists.]]

Added DiffLines:

* StandardizedLeader: The very core of his concept. He's an unpleasable, kill-joy with a conservative moral code - yet a paragon for Paragon.

* ChildSoldiers: WordOfGod confirms both that she helped serve in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII and she was in her 80s at launch in 2004...if you do the math on that... she would be in her early tweens at the most and that is if we assume she only severed for the closing days of the War, which is unlikely since she was paired with Statesman who was a returning veteran even back then.
** The game's background info may add even more context to this as mutant rights didn't come into full swing until the 1980s, so the U.S. government likely [[LoopholeAbuse did not consider ''human'' rights]] [[FridgeHorror to apply to her]]... [[FreudianExcuse This would explain a few personalty quirks though]]...

* OlderThanTheyLook: She looks like someone in her late twinties to mid thirties but is actually a little over eighty. Turns out her original body doesn't age while she does the aforementioned BodySurf.

* ChildSoldiers: WordOfGod confirms both that she helped serve in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII and she was in her 80s at launch in 2006...even if she served only during the closing days of the war (which is unlikely considering she was paired with Statesman who was a veteran) this would mean she was between 12-16 at the time.
