* LadyAndKnight: Technically it would be 'Captain and Supply Officier' but Lafiel and Jinto fullfil the spirit of the trope. He takes care of and otherwise protects her, while she is a good-hearted princess with a drive to serve her empire. On other hand, since Jinto is arguably TheQuisling, his fellow humans see them as the darker variety.

* BadassPrincess: As early as Crest of Stars; take over a space station and rescue her companion without arms or back up? No problem.



* SilkHidingSteel: Polite and proper even when threatening someone. By her strength of will and cleverness, [[spoiler: she recruited Klowal's pet-like maids into a rebellion against him]]. As for 'being in charge' she may be a princess but she's still has to obey her military superiors.

* BlasphemousBoast: In response to Angusson, who claims the title of "Prime Minister of Lognas II" by DivineRight she says the following, "In this galaxy, Hell does indeed exist and we know this for certain because we created it and we control it."

operation, and swinging that sword of his.



* SociopathicHero: She ain't called "the Lady of Chaos" for nothing. She finds anything less than a life-or-death struggle 'boring' and when she captured an enemy vessel she gave the crew [[MortonsFork the choice between execution or 1 year's rations for 100 year journey home through normal space.]]
* UnfortunateNames: Spoor. Get a dictionary and laugh. It's because of [[SpellMyNameWithAnS lame phonetic transcription]], because the [[ConLang correct form of her name]] in Latin script is Spaurh.

CloudCuckooLandersMinder, since his immediate superior is "the Lady of Chaos".

** By ''Banner of the Stars'' she's taken to regularly insulting him despite the ''Basroil'''s crew acknowledging him as her 'special friend'.

** By ''Banner of the Stars'' she's taken to regularly insulting him despite the ''Basroil'''s crew acknowledging him as her 'special friend'. She's likely in a crabby mood during this time due to this being her first command and she is feeling the pressure ''very'' heavily. On a couple of occasions Jinto manages to take her mind off of things and she lightens up considerably.

** By '''Banner II'', she refuses to cry over him and says that his kidnapping is his own fault but that is more TheChainsOfCommand than Tsundere. She's actually more dere-dere here than previous series.

* HeroicSeductress: During negiotations with Jinto and Meideen about the Western Block immigrating (and thus escaping perverts looking for playthings, i.e. the men of the Eastern Block) she gives the former a view of her cleave while suggesting they talk "privately". Meideen immediately calls her on this and she denies it. In any case, Jinto didn't care and she doesn't try again.

*RightlySelfRighteous: "I'm on this side (the warden side) of the wall; of course I'm a NiceGuy." Considering that he is consistently polite, cooperative and courageous (aside from a single bout of childish bickering), he has cause to say this.



*BullyingADragon: He is the only rebel that realizes what a bad idea it is to offend an organization that could blow away your planet's atmosphere from orbit and is currently parked in the perfect position to do so.



* DirtyCoward: It's clear that he doesn't have the backbone to resist Angusson, and unrepentantly brown-noses the guy once he conquers the Central Sector.

* DirtyCoward: It's clear that he doesn't have the backbone to resist Angusson, and unrepentantly brown-noses the guy once he conquers the Central Sector. Even when he ''does'' stand up to the guy it's because Sobaash scares him more.




to:

*LoopholeAbuse: He claims that his election was perfectly fair and free and then it is pointed out that he made sure only his flunkies were on the eligible voters list.



*FemalesAreMoreInnocent: Unlike the other two "prime ministers" she is portrayed sympathetically and Meideen exposits that the inhabitants of her sector were victims of crimes before they became criminals. Saving them from Agnusson' army is basically the plot of ''Banner II''. However, this only applies to Shangal's sector. The central section women are treated the same as the central section men.

* DueToTheDead: One of the only positive traits he shows is a desire to honor [[spoiler:Meideen]] after his death, since the man did not die a coward.

coward. He even salutes alongside Jinto.

*MotherhoodIsSuperior: His reasoning for rejecting artificial birth technology is that a mother is essential for raising a child. No matter how much a man loves his child he simply can't replace a mother because "a mother's love is unconditional". Again, this is all for the child's benefit. He doesn't indicate that he cares about the mother herself.

* DistressedDude: Early on he is captured and Lafiel has to rescue him. "I'm at a loss without you around."
* TheFace: Deconstructed with Jinto feels about being forced into this role. Because he seems to get along with everyone (perhaps because he wasn't born into Abh society like everyone else) he has to act as a go-between both inside the Basroil's crew and with other soldiers. This means shouldering everyone's emotional baggage and translating it for one receiving the message.

* ImpoverishedPatrician: Jinto may be a count but the only thing to his name is his position in the Star Force. He comments on this and his quarters on the ship has a sign declaring, "The tiniest noble mansion in the empire."
** Averted in Banner III, [[spoiler: when Martine is finally recaptured and (reluctantly) agrees to stay with the Empire. Jinto still doesn't get to set foot on his home planet again, as this was one of the conditions Martinians required.]]

* TheQuisling: By the time ''Banner I'' opens, he's unflinchingly loyal to the Abh (by way of [[TheDulcineaEffect his loyalty to Lafiel]]) and doesn't really seem to care too much about his old home anymore; this comes back to bite him in the ass later on, as his former friends consider him an example of this trope ''in-show''.
** The rest only consider his father the real traitor (he did surrender the world to the Abh and get a noble title for it), and are convinced Jinto can be "corrected". When that doesn't happen, they're usually none too happy. [[spoiler: At the end of the anime series, they agree to stop rebelling and stay an Abh system under the condition that he, and those who inherit his title over the system, never return.]]

* {{Tsundere}}: Becomes this after arriving at Sufugnof; she gives Jinto a hard time in between moments of affection and vulnerability. She says baka complete with LuminescentBlush while telling him to shut up. Being [[FishOutOfWater out of her comfort zone]] on land probably makes her irritable.

*EveryoneHasStandards: BloodKnight though she may be, even she wouldn't go into battle heavily outnumbered.



* {{Jerkass}}: Its hard to tell weather Spoor is simply a jerkass or a JerkWithAHeartOfGold. In ''Banner II'' she goes from pitying Lafiel to bullying her Chief of Staff.
** She blurs the line by [[CrossingTheLineTwice crossing it twice]], though her relationship with her executive officers tends to have heavy shades of MistressAndServantBoy (which indicates a JerkWithAHeartOfGold).
* ObfuscatingInsanity: Unlike Nereis and Nefee, Spoor's reputation for being nuts covers her brilliant tactical mind.

For instance, she needs to stall for five hours in ''Banner II'' against a vastly superior fleet. They give her one hour to retreat and she prolongs the negotiations by acting like a {{troll}} for one hour and gets two more on top of that.

* ForeignQueasine: Cat is considered a delicacy on his homeworld of Midgrat. When the United Mankind sent ambassadors, they repeatedly lectured the locals on democracy and how unhealthy it was to eat cat. The Abh didn't say anything. According to him, this is why Midgrat joined the Abh Empire.

The Imperial Princess of the Empire, and granddaughter of the current Empress, Lafiel has quite a lot of expectations to live up to in her life. She bears them well, and is considered a prime candidate for the next Empress. Her position often makes her feel lonely, so she treasures her relationship with Jinto very closely, considering him her first real friend (and possibly more, as the series goes on).
