* GrowingTheBeard: While some of Ethan's more recent acts are downright insane, his position as Manager of Gamehaven resulted in a lot more times where he actually is intelligent and insightful... Of course, He's still the same old Ethan.



* PassingTheTorch: He got back from marrying Lilah to be handed a envelope by his boss, who was about to quit the business. And had apparently just handed Ethan the deed.






* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Keeps his position as the manager of Gamehaven, but, outside of things like randomly falling asleep and random geeking out over game releases, he seems to be much more thoughtful and have an actual strategy to when he does things.




to:

* TooDumbToLive: Can be as bad as pre-Reboot Ethan, except for the fact that, for Analog, such insane acts, as mentioned above, actually are good strategic choices!

!!Cort Ryder

*AntiHero: He's an ex-Marshal who now takes jobs in the grey area (or as he put it, morally flexible). He's a good person at heart, but often he takes less savory decisions for pragmatic reasons, such as delivering highly volatile explosives when he knows they will be used for bad ends. When called out on it, he points out that he doesn't want Ssimias to be added to the list of people who wants him dead.


!!Speck

* BlessedWithSuck: Dissolving things on contact means barred from physical touch with a lot of things. [[CursedWithAwesome On the other hand]], dissolving things on contact has many practical uses too.
* MobileFishbowl: Necessary, as he dissolves almost anything on touch.
* TouchOfDeath: As a Mimion, his skin produces corrosive mucus that dissolves almost anything on contact. His threats often amount to 'giving a hug', but when we actually see it in action, it's not pretty.


!!The Grin

*LovesTheSoundOfScreaming
-->'''The Grin:''' I've heard a lot of screams... I've ''caused'' a lot of screams... And ''that's'' a good one.
*PsychoForHire: As Cort puts it, he's a 'Murder Enthusiast'.

* JerkAss: when it comes to customers and Rob due to his limited experience or ignorance of videogames.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: In spite of his flaws he truly loves his wife Lilah and at least respects his friend Lucas when he's not trying anything stupid.

* OnlySaneMan: Inverted. Everybody else can come across as sane when compared to him. In fact, during a period in which he starts acting sane, everyone else starts acting insane to compensate, as though he's a lightning rod for the universe's insanity.

* GeniusDitz: It's stated that for 7 seconds a day, he enters into this zone that grants him insight into the universe, which in turn lets him do amazing things like build sapient robots or dispense amazing relationship advice, before returning to "normal". To cap off this bit of insight into his character, he puts slices of pineapple over his eyes to make pineapple goggles.
