Added DiffLines:

* DoNotCallMePaul: Most everyone else uses the short-hand version of his first name, "Frank". Adam is insistent on calling him "Francis", usually in emphasis to twit him, making it seem like Pritchard has long since given up this insistence in his dealings with Jensen.

** Adam's immune system is different to most people's, allowing his body to be extensively modified without rejecting the new parts. He doesn't need the neuropozyne that drives people insane. [[spoiler:Turns out he's the "subject x" Reed's breakthrough they were planning to reveal was based on.]]

* NotTheFallThatKillsYou: Adam actually takes ''quite a bit'' of damage from falling. Falling one story can take off more than half his health, falling two or three is a sure death. However, he can activate the Icarus Landing System which envelops him in an electromagnetic sphere that slows his descent. It looks cool, and can be used to knock out enemies he lands upon from above.

Added DiffLines:

* MarySue: [[YourMilageMayVary YMMV]], but: has a DarkAndTroubledPast, including an abusive father, was accepted into and attended Oxford University (one of the best and most influential colleges in the world), she was an Olympic class athlete before getting augmented (after getting trampled by a horse of all things), got hired to MI-5 for no apparent reason, rather quickly romances Adam Jensen (who is still suffering from an obsession with finding his ex-girlfriend Megan Reed, and really wouldn't be interested in someone else), works side-by-side Adam (even tho Jensen is a notorious loner who likes to work missions solo), Jensen was willing to kill himself to possibly save her, performs a HeroicSacrifice to save Jensen, and her death apparently greatly affected him. [[ContinuitySnarl Atleast until the comic's story ends as she is never mentioned, referenced, or alluded to in the game.]]

* StuffedIntoTheFridge: Also averted. [[spoiler:She is killed because she's a threat and a "traitor"; her death has nothing to do with her gender or anything to do with Adam personally, though Burke will taunt him about it later

to:

* StuffedIntoTheFridge: Also averted. [[spoiler:She is killed because she's a threat and a "traitor"; her death has nothing to do with her gender or anything to do with Adam personally, though Burke will taunt him about it laterlater]].
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:She ''thinks'' she's helping Interpol; that was just what Quinn told her to ensure her cooperation. She was actually assisting a shadow organization; likely the Juggernaut Collective, a global cyberterrorist group]].

!!Garvin Quinn
--> Voice: Julian Casey

Also from ''The Missing Link'', Quinn is the main technician at Rifleman Bank Station, and also runs a little side operation for 'requisitions'.
----

* BaldOfAwesome
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler:Minor example in the ConspiracyKitchenSink that is the Deus Ex universe, but he still uses Adam's arrival on the station perfectly, and reaches most of his goals by the end of the DLC.]]
* CloudCuckoolander: Went ''fishing'' off the side of a ''cargo freighter''. There is a chair set up on the upper deck of the ship with beer and fishing equipment, and the player can also come across an email from one of the higher-ups for the fisherman to cut it out. While it's never explicitly stated that Quinn is the fisherman, if Adam visits Quinn's store early (before Keitner sends him there), he will find Quinn gone, and a note in the window stating that he had "Gone Fishing". [[spoiler: This is, of course, all a part of his cover.]]
* ConsummateLiar: [[spoiler:Part in parcel for a spy.]]
* TheCracker: [[spoiler:He's the mysterious hacker who's been enabling your escape.]]
* FakeIrish: [[spoiler:In-universe. He's actually Russian, his real name unknown.]]
* GadgeteerGenius: As Adam notes, he's really skilled for a mere technician, fixing up a one-use gadget and building a custom-made rocket launcher. [[spoiler: There's a good reason for this.]]
* GratuitousRussian: [[spoiler:He uses this all the time in his hacker persona, constantly calling Adam "bratán" (slang for "bro" or "mate"), among other things.]]
* HiddenDepths: He looks and acts like the crusty technician, but he's an unexpected GadgeteerGenius and is much kinder than he at first appears, as saving lives and acting kindly in general earns his approval. [[spoiler: And then, of course, there's his true affiliation.]]
* TheMole: [[spoiler:For an unknown outside group, most likely the Juggernaut Collective.]]
* NoSell: [[spoiler:He's immune to the Casie augmentation, probably due to an augmentation of his own.]]
* TheScrounger: He runs the only store available to you while on the station, containing mostly smuggled goods.
* TheSmartGuy: He acts as this for Keitner and Adam.

!!Wayne Haas
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Deus_Ex_HR_Wayne_Haas_1722.JPG]]

--> Voice: Marcel Jeannin
----

Formerly one of Jensen's SWAT team subordinates, he took up the post of team leader after the former quit over the Mexicantown Incident. That same event however, would lead to Haas's mental breakdown and his subsequent demotion to a precinct desk sergeant.

* TheAtoner: He is looking for absolution for his role in inciting the Mexicantown Riots.
* ButtMonkey: On top of everything that has happened to him so far, Haas can end up being fired if he lets Jensen into the morgue. This leads to him confronting and blaming Jensen at his apartment, which will either end with Jensen offering Haas a job at Sarif Industries or Jensen being forced to incapacitate or kill him when he gets violent.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: The Mexicantown Incident.
* MyGreatestFailure: As if the whole Mexicantown Incident wasn't enough, others also make comments about the fact that he's a desk jockey. For example, Chet Wagner disparagingly comments on the idea of ending up like "Secretary Haas over there."
* NeverMyFault: Haas is incapable of accepting responsibility for his actions. Granted, this is largely in response to being forced to act in a situation that he does not have any control over, but he blames Jensen for leaving him with the decision to follow an order to shoot an augmented adolescent.
* ReassignedToAntarctica: From SWAT commander to badge-toting hotel doorman, only a step above an actual firing. He's very bitter, and the guilt over what landed him there hasn't improved his state of mind.

!!Jenny Alexander

--> Voice: Lucina Davis
----

A friend of Adam's from his first four years on the Detroit Police force. Currently working undercover as a prostitute just outside of [[WrongSideOfTheTracks Derelict Row]].

* ByTheBookCop: Claims to usually be this, but going by the book doesn't work when your target's a friend of the publisher.
* DirtyHarriet
* FairCop: Jensen can even comment on it.
* {{Stripperific}}: {{Justified|Trope}}; when you meet her, she's undercover as a prostitute.

!!Jack O'Malley

--> Voice: Victor Young
----

* AffablyEvil: He can be persuaded to pay Adam part of the hitman's fee upfront, and even after [[spoiler:he finds out that Adam has betrayed him]], he's quite polite and understanding about it. Unless [[spoiler:Adam [[ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules refuses to take the bribe]]]], in which case all bets are off.
* DirtyCop
* NotSoDifferent: Tries to pull this on Jensen if the 'Cold' dialogue choice is taken when arresting him, stating that they both view the world through cold, hard facts.
* ProperlyParanoid: Jenny calls him paranoid; considering he's a [[DirtyCop dirty cop]] who's [[spoiler:trying to start a gang war]], it's hard to blame him for taking numerous and varied precautions.
* SmugSnake

!!Chet Wagner

--> Voice: James Rankin
----

* DirtyCop: He was never a model policeman to begin with, hacking his office email suggests that he takes bribes, and his unreliability [[spoiler: proves useful to the conspirators, as he is assigned to the Sarif Industries Attack Investigation and, predictably, botches it horribly.]]
* DirtyCoward: One threat is all it takes. Granted, it's a pretty impressive threat, but ''still''.
* FantasticRacism: Makes about one anti-Aug slur per sentence before Jensen either intimidates or blackmails him.
* {{Jerkass}}: Even a station-wide e-mail sent out warning officers that anti-Aug/anti-Natural slurs will be met with harsh punishment ''still'' doesn't stop him from calling Adam things like 'chrome boy' and 'metalhead'.
* SmugSnake: The best part of dealing with him is making a well-placed threat and watching all of his arrogant bravado come crashing down like a house of cards.

!!Officer Nicholas

--> Voice: Shawn Baichoo
----

* PoliceAreUseless: Or rather, The Police Are Otherwise Occupied trying to pacify the fire-bombing rioters through Detroit.
* NervousWreck: Granted, the reason he's nervous is because he's the only one aware of a ''bomb threat''.

[[folder: Pro-Augs]]

!!Sir Hugh Darrow

--> Voice: Arthur Holden

A billionaire Nobel Prize winner and a close friend of David Sarif. Considered the "father" of augmentations technology. He is currently working on a project named "Panchaea," a massive hole in the ocean that is supposed to change global warming, and has other geoengineering projects planned. Picus tries to give somewhat favorable coverage of this project ([[{{Nepotism}} presumably due to Picus having been founded by Hugh's father]]). He plans to show the world what augmentation can do for humanity...
----

* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:While Darrow's scheme doesn't go entirely as planned, the chaos he caused ultimately fulfills his goal of turning public opinion against augmentation technology.]]
* BigBad: [[spoiler: While he has competition for the role, Darrow ultimately comes closest to realizing his plans.]]
* TheCobblersChildrenHaveNoShoes: Darrow is, more than anyone else, ''the'' driving mind behind mechanical augmentation, one of the great transhumanist philosophers and a multi-billionaire who could get anything in the world... but he also has a rare genetic condition which caused his body to violently reject all attempts at mechanical augmentation, leaving him on the sidelines to observe his vision of a bright new future rise and move on without him.
* CreatorBacklash: [[spoiler: In-Universe. See EvilIsPetty.]]
* EvilBrit: [[spoiler:Complete with a master plan involving massive projects and something akin to a superweapon.]]
* EvilIsPetty: [[spoiler: He's rather pissed and bitter his own invention can't do a thing for him, so he hijacks the Illuminati's plans and tweaks them so he can make sure the whole world gets to know just how much he's come to hate his own creation.]]
* {{Expy}}: Similar to [[VideoGame/MetalGear Patriots-era Major Zero]] in some ways.
* GeniusCripple: He's missing an arm, has a leg brace, and walks with a vaguely sci-fi-looking cane. It's visually distinctive, but becomes even more so once you realize how much it sticks out in a world where medical augmentations exist. [[spoiler: This becomes a plot point during his 'boss battle'.]]
* GreenEyedMonster: [[spoiler: He displays some jealousy over the fact that he has a genetic disorder that keeps him from using augments himself.]]
* HandicappedBadass: [[spoiler: When confronting him in the Panchaea tower, take note of his cane. It is covered in blood, implying that this crippled old man beat at least one of the insane augs to death with a stick.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler: Calling him on this is one of the ways to win the social battle with him, but only if you've destabilized him and called attention to his jealousy of augs.]]
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: [[spoiler: How he justifies his actions, naturally.]]
* KnightTemplar: [[spoiler: He's prepared to cause the deaths of millions to eliminate augmentation.]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler: Implied; he points directly to Hyron (which he helped create) as one of the reasons why augmentation is very, very ''bad''.]]
** [[spoiler: He will say this, minus the God part, if you play the conversation with him right at the end of the game.]]
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Arthur Holden does a ''very'' convincing British accent for the most part. However, a few of his vowel sounds during the last chat with Darrow sound a bit ''too'' North American.
* TheStarscream: [[spoiler: Darrow's Illuminati partners want to use augmentation as part of a worldwide AssimilationPlot using their new biochip to control the thoughts of everyone with an augmentation after the technology becomes universal. Darrow secretly opposes this plan, and his own scheme is to send a modified signal that turns every augmented person on the planet a murderous lunatic, in order to show the still-human population the dangers of augmentation in a way so widespread and massive that it cannot be covered up.]]
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: [[spoiler: Even Picus seems to like him, despite their obvious anti-augmentation bias. Turns out it's because he's in on TheConspiracy. The fact that his father founded Picus probably helps, too.]]
* WalkingSpoiler
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler: Based on his knowledge of the Illuminati's plans, Darrow sees his only two choices as either the mass murder of millions, or the eternal slavery of all humanity to the Illuminati. When confronting him it's possible for Adam to convince him humanity is capable of [[TakeAThirdOption Taking A Third Option]]]].

!!Mengyao

--> Voice: Vicky Wong

One of Darrow's representatives, involved in the Panchaea project.

!!Dr. Vera Marcovic

--> Voice: Leni Parker

She works at the L.I.M.B. clinic in Detroit. Unlike David Sarif, she believes that Adam should have more choice regarding the progress of his augmentations.

!!Zhao Yun Ru

--> Voice: Jane Luk

The CEO of Tai Yong Medical, a Chinese bio-tech company seeking to become the world leader in the augmentation market and a direct competitor to Sarif Industries. She warns Adam about "these men" who "control global interests on a whim," mysteriously neglecting her own involvement in said global interests.
----

* BigBadWannabe: [[spoiler:A rare instance where such a character actually ends up as the FinalBoss... although not because they're actually the power behind the throne.]]
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Her overall goal is to ruthlessly eliminate Tai Yong's competition and establish a monopoly on the augmentation market [[spoiler: in order to ensure the universal distribution of the Illuminati's new mind-controlling biochip. She is even willing to merge with Hyron to do this, lacking any other ambition.]]
* [[DistractedByTheSexy Distracted By The Feeling Up]]: She uses this technique on Adam.
* DragonLady: She is commonly referred to as the Dragon Queen, her dress is a combination of traditional Chinese wear and neo-Renaissance frills, [[spoiler: ''and'' she uses a bit of seduction on Adam.]]
* {{Expy}}: Of [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/DeusEx Maggie Chow]]]], despite having a different career.
* FinalBoss: [[spoiler:Technically, Hyron is, but she is the final part of it that needs to be defeated.]]
** EvilIsNotAToy: [[spoiler:At the end of the game, she merges with Hyron to try and assume direct control over the world's augmented population. As soon as she does, she finds out too late her biochip is incompatible with the system, and her attempts to force the technologies to interface backfires. Pretty literally, in fact: the uncontrolled energy burns her up from the inside out.]]
* FreudianExcuse: She was a champion gymnast when she was a child until the accident that led to her being augmented. She'll do anything to reclaim [[IcarusAllusion her moment in the sun]], when the spotlight was on her and no one else.
* LargeHam: Listen to her when she's trying to convince Jensen she's "not a bad girl."
* NotSoDifferent: When [[spoiler:attempting to merge with Hyron]] she says to Adam that neither of them would ever trust anyone else with the power they're grappling over - not the Illuminati, not their corporate allies, no one. And, well, she's right.
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:After she hooks herself up to Hyron, she becomes much less coherent and cool; her reasoning goes from "Someone has to save the world," to screaming about staying in control.]]
* SmugSnake: If the player [[spoiler:didn't take the upgrade]], her attempt to smugly incapacitate Adam will fall right on its face. There are also hints that she's not as useful to the conspiracy as she'd like to be and [[spoiler:her attempt to integrate with Hyron will end poorly for her, though she refuses to acknowledge it]].
* UnknownRival: She hates Sarif with passion for several obvious reasons, like being her most powerful and successful competitor and crafting the man [[spoiler: who would bring her down very hard]]. In return, Sarif makes near to no mention of Zhao. While it's a given he's not her ally, he doesn't seem to hate her personally the way she does him.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler: If you pay attention to her ranting in the final battle, she is pretty bent on making sure she can take control of the aug population to prove she can control Hyron even as it was trying to reject her, and even earlier she is hellbent on making sure she can dominate her competition. In both cases she or other people in the game blatantly tell you she hates losing and doesn't want to be a bit player at anything. It's also hinted her position in the Illuminati wasn't as important as she thought it was, so she wanted to make sure she always remained a critical part of it.]]

[[folder: Anti-Augs]]

!!Zeke Sanders/[[spoiler:Ezekiel Sandoval]]

--> Voice: Danny Blanco Hall

Leader of the Purity First militant organization, best-known for leading an attack on Sarif Industries at their Milwaukee Junction manufacturing plant. He has some unexpected familial connections that only become apparent much later.
----

* CyberneticsEatYourSoul: He certainly seems to believe this, becoming convinced that his [[ElectronicEyes cyber eye]] was driving him out of control when he had a PSTD episode after getting it implanted. He has since had it removed and becomes a literally militant anti-augmentation activist.
* EnemyMine: If you talk him into releasing the hostage and allow him to escape, he will give you the access codes for the FEMA camp in Highland Park in exchange later.
* EyepatchOfPower: To replace the [[ElectronicEyes cybereye]] he had removed.
* GratuitousSpanish: Uses a lot of Spanish slang in conversation, and frequently swaps out English terms for Spanish ones in emails to his men.
* IGaveMyWord[=/=]ExactWords: When he says that he considers his debt to Adam repaid, he means it. He will not hesitate to kill Adam during Purity First's next big operation. This can be cut short if you're ProperlyParanoid and kill him right then and there after he gives you the codes.
* ShellShockedVeteran: He was injured by an IED in Afghanistan, developing PTSD as a result, which probably contributed to his bad reaction to getting augmented.
* SuicideByCop: According to another character, the "crazy" thing his augmentations "made" him do was start shooting in a mall hoping to die. This was apparently a combination of the pain of Neuropozyne withdrawal triggering his PTSD. Obvious the attempt was unsuccessful, as Taggart supposedly talked him down. He became a serious anti-aug convert after that.
* UnwittingPawn: His operation was used as a cover by [[spoiler: the conspiracy]] to get their hacker into Sarif's manufacturing plant.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He and Purity First are far more militant in their desire to end augmentation than Humanity Front. [[spoiler: Of course, Humanity Front's leadership really wants to control augmentation technology rather than eliminate it outright]].

!!William Taggart

--> Voice: Bruce Dinsmore

The founder of Humanity Front and the leader of the anti-augmentation movement, claiming it is a dangerous technology with unclear means of regulation that the world is not ready for until it can be safely controlled. This turns out to be more or less his true motive. The real secret is where he thinks the control of augmentation and augmented individuals should lie...
----

* [[AmbiguouslyChristian Ambiguously Mormon]]: He runs a rehab clinic in Utah and alludes to his Latter-Day Saint upbringing in an email, and his view could ''possibly'' be framed in terms of Mormon beliefs, but it's not clear whether or not he's still observant.
* AncientConspiracy: [[spoiler:Cheerfully invoked. He observes that using the Illuminati name is a ''great'' way to get financiers to pony up.]]
* BrainwashingForTheGreaterGood: Possibly. He has a rehab center in Utah, where people are apparently 'convinced' to get rid of their augmentations.
* BreakTheHaughty: Winning the persuasion battle with him can result in this. Particularly sweet on account of the whole "in front of TV conference" aspect.
* TheFundamentalist: The Humanity Front's anti-augmentation policy seems to be largely based around not 'playing God' or 'upsetting the way human beings are meant to be'. As it turns out, this is just a technique to rally the lowest common denominator; Taggart's actual concern about aug research is that [[spoiler:it's accelerating too quickly for the Illuminati to consolidate control over it.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: Claims that enhancing the body's natural limitations with technology is wrong. He wears glasses. Like JC Denton before him, his vision is augmented.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: A peaceful variant. He's leading Humanity Front to restrict and weaken the augmentation movement but he does have understandable reasons for it. [[spoiler: ...Or so it seems at first. His wife's death is only half of it. The other seems to be furthering the power of the Illuminati.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:A variation in ''[[Literature/DeusExIcarusEffect Icarus Effect]]''; the Illuminati decide to have Taggart killed by one of their augmented assassins during an important UN event at Geneva, the idea being that he becomes a martyr and the Humanity Front gain momentum from it, leading the charge to regulate[=/=]ban augmentations. When the assassination fails, the Illuminati's plans continue without much alteration and Taggart remains loyal to them (probably because he knows defying them would not end well for him).]]

!!Isaias Sandoval

--> Voice: Matt Holland

A former surgeon and currently Taggart's right-hand man. He is opposed to augmentation because of the effects he observed on his patients in the past.
----

* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:Potentially after Taggart's big press conference. You can avert it if you say the right things. If you confront Sandoval ''without'' exposing his activities to Taggart, [[DevelopersForesight he'll just try to shoot Adam.]]]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler: Helps the Tyrants to circumvent the effects of the Sarif scientist's GPL trackers, unaware until it was too late that they were planning on launching a full-scale bloody attack on Sarif headquarters. He confesses to Adam that he "died that night."]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Criminals]]

!!Derelict Row Ballers

Detroit's largest street gang, they are rabidly anti-augmentation and control an area surrounding an abandoned textile plant in downtown Detroit.

* BoringButPractical: They shun augs and use only standard weapons, but have a large number of members, no dependency on an expensive drug, and have support from anti-augs (who are implied to be the majority of people in this universe).
* FantasticRacism: Against augmented individuals.

!!Motor City Bangers

Detroit's second-largest street gang. Not as large as the DRB, but they make up for it by embracing augmentations to make each individual member more formidable.

* AffablyEvil: So long as you don't raise a gun in their faces, they're pretty friendly to Jensen. Hell, you even come across one guy who gives you intel on the FEMA compound and offers upgrades and ammo for a cheap price.
* AwesomeButImpractical: Their augs give them an edge in combat but they depend on an expensive drug to maintain their wellbeing, have fewer members due to widespread augmentation discrimination and as a sidequest notes, are much easier to identify due to their flashy augment implants.
* BlingBlingBang: They sure like gold-plated cyberlimbs.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Though it feels like a parody more than anything:
-->'''MCB Gang Leader''': Rest in peace, Big Rizzle.
-->'''Adam Jensen''': ''(bored)'' Yeah. RIP.

!!Harvesters

This vicious triad from Hengsha is so-named because they attack augmented people in order to steal their implants, which they then sell on the black market or install in themselves.

* AffablyEvil: Several members will compliment Adam on his augmentations very politely and warn him against walking the streets in Hengsha alone - it's very dangerous, especially for someone like him. It can be really hard to tell where genuine compliment ends and where ImpliedDeathThreat begins with these guys.
* BodyHorror: They ''rip the cybernetic parts out of you'', leaving you crippled on the ground, and sell the augs or use them themselves.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Several members have really deep voices, going hand in hand with the trope below.
* ScaryBlackMan: Their membership contains a high quantity of black men with American accents and deep voices, despite the fact that they are a gang based in a Chinese city.
** Could be considered TruthInTelevision; many Asian crime syndicates will employ expat foreigners in low-level positions because institutional racism often prevents them from finding legitimate work. It's also possible that Hengsha, like Dubai in real life, was constructed largely by immigrant laborers, which would provide a large pool of expat foreigners for the Harvesters to draw from.
* TheSingularity: Some of them seem to idealise augmentations and hold TheSingularity as their end goal. The compliments these guys give Adam come off a lot more genuine than the [[ImpliedDeathThreat Implied Death Threats]] coming from the rest.
* SinisterShades: They seem rather fond of these. (Like Jensen, they are probably augmented to help them better find potential targets.)

!!Tong Si Hung

--> Voice: Dennis Akiyama

The owner of the popular Hengsha nightclub, The Hive, as well as the biggest crime lord in the city's underworld. Later revealed to be the father of Tracer Tong from the original game.

* TheBartender: His initial disguise.
* DeadpanSnarker
-->'''Jensen''': Tong! How did you get this frequency?
-->'''Tong''': Ancient Chinese secret.
* EnemyMine: Agrees to help Jensen solely because he thinks he'll cause a lot more trouble for Belltower. [[spoiler:Though helping his son make a getaway by using Jensen as a distraction was probably the true reason he was so willing to assist him.]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has some rather nasty burn scars on his neck and chest.
* KarmaHoudini: One of the very few major characters in the game that cannot be hurt or killed, and his plot importance means that Adam has no choice but to leave him to his criminal activities, including his ties to human trafficking. [[note]] The only consolation is that when you experience the glitch while leaving his office for the final time, Tong is unaffected while his Harvesters (and Adam, if not upgraded) recoil in pain. This logically means that Tong became just another of the screaming madmen after Darrow launched his signal.[[/note]]
* KingIncognito: Adam perceives him as this, but he insults Adam for not figuring it out during their first conversation. Adam can actually spot him as such if he has the social aug.
* PapaWolf: Don't mess with his son. [[spoiler: He'll sic ''Jensen'' on you.]]
* OffscreenTeleportation: Tong seems to be capable of this. [[spoiler: After talking to him when he is disguised as a barkeeper he sends you to his office to meet him]]. Even when you use the most direct path to get there, he always manages to be waiting for you.
* RedRightHand: It's never explained where his horrible facial scarring came from, but it's a good bet it has something to do with why he also has a cyberarm.
* ThirdPersonPerson: When talking to Adam at the bar, though he switches once his identity is revealed.
* TheTriadsAndTheTongs: He leads Hengsha's local triad gang, the Harvesters.

!!Bobby Bao

--> Voice: Russell Yuen

The main bartender of the Hive, who also helps to run the shadier side of Tong's business.

* TheBartender: A rather corrupt version.
* LoanShark: Bao runs a scam for the Harvesters, offering to give people augmentations for no money up front, then shaking them down for monthly payments afterwards.

!!Arie Van Bruggen

--> Voice: Alex Ivanovici

The hacker who was puppeting the infiltrator during the second attack on Sarif Industries, he uses the screen-name "Windmill" and is also called the "Dutchman" even though his accent is more Caribbean. [[note]]Of course, there are the islands of Curacao, Bonaire, and Aruba, all part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. And that's not even counting the possibility that he could hail from Suriname.[[/note]]

* BiTheWay: Possibly. His greeting for Adam is, "Sorry, man, you're not my type," there's an interesting e-mail sent to the landlord of Alice Garden Pods, and if you look at all the sticky notes plastered around the computer in his apartment, you'll find several with phone numbers and girls' names written on them, and one sticky note reminding him to buy more [[BreadEggsMilkSquick broccoli and lube]].
--->'''HIVE-MASTER@THEHIVE.HI.PRC:'''[[note]]To: guestssupport@alicegardenpods.hi.prc[[/note]] make sure 301 gets whatever the fuck he wants. boys, girls, internet access, sodan noodles, or the fucking moon.
* DuelingHackers: [=Nucl3arsnake=]/Frank Pritchard vs Windmill/Arie van Bruggen, though it seems that Frank is the better of the two. From the frustration that Windmill expresses in his e-mails, Frank was doing ''just fine'' keeping him at bay; it wasn't until Windmill discovered [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Sarif's backdoor access]] that he was able to get into Sarif Industries' system. In other words, Van Bruggen needed the computer security equivalent of the bank's owner leaving his vault and front door completely open and unlocked to get past Pritchard.
* HeKnowsTooMuch: One of the reasons Belltower comes after him. He took steps about this as well, squirreling away evidence and little "surprises" in the TYM mainframe. He just didn't anticipate ''having to go back for it.''
* MisplacedAccent: Detailed above.
* PlayfulHacker: "I am looking at your bank account, and... you know, Sarif really ought to pay you more..."
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: His accent isn't Dutch, it's Caribbean which would make him from the Dutch Antilles or Suriname.

!!Brent Radford

--> Voice: Al Goulem

An aged private investigator who used to be a detective. He was hired by David Sarif to do a background check on Adam Jensen. Unfortunately, his investigation attracted some very pointed attention.

* DyingAsYourself: He'd rather [[spoiler:die than become augmented]], because he believes that augs have lost their humanity. [[spoiler:You can talk him out of it, assuming you have the CASIE upgrade and you hit the right dialogue choices]].
* FantasticRacism: Uses the harshest anti-Aug slurs heard in the game, calling Adam a 'robot' and telling Adam that he's not even human. He asks Adam what it was like to die, and whether Adam even has a soul, or if that was taken out of him when he was "built". He also refers to Adam's augmented body as a "metal corpse". ''Damn''.
* GuideDangIt: You can [[spoiler:save him]], but you need the CASIE upgrade to do it.
* ICannotSelfTerminate: He asks Adam to give him [[spoiler:a lethal overdose of morphine to [[MercyKill end his suffering]]]]. Adam can choose whether or not to oblige him.
* {{Jerkass}}: To augmented people. Just ''look'' at what he says to Adam, even though Adam [[spoiler:just took out the man who shot him, is perfectly civil to him, and, depending on player choices, ''trying to save his life'']].
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's more concerned about [[spoiler:Michelle's]] welfare than his own, despite the fact that he's never met her; all he knows is that she's kind and that Adam owes her his life. Radford insists that Adam get to her before Adam's enemies do, and implores him to save her.
* PetTheDog: For all that he considers Adam to be inhuman, he still [[spoiler:gives up all the information he can even as he's dying]]. Depending on the dialogue chosen, he may decide that Adam's "got a lot of heart, [[YouAreACreditToYourRace for a robot]]".
* YouAreACreditToYourRace: Will tell Jensen that he has "a lot of heart for a robot," with the right dialogue choices.

!!Cassandra Reed

--> Voice: Susan Glover

Megan's mother, and dissatisfied with the investigation into her death.

* [[GoodParents Good Mother]]: If you check Megan's computer at the beginning of the game, there's an e-mail message from Cassandra expressing her concern and asking Megan to call her more often.
* HotScientist: She has her daughter's features, and has aged very gracefully.
* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Mother, Like Daughter]]: The same e-mail mentioned above also reveals that Cassandra is scientist, and she often buries herself in her work. She even uses the phrase verbatim.

!!Lee Hong

--> Voice: Zen Shane Lim

The ex-boyfriend of one of Malik's deceased friends. [[spoiler: He was the one who killed her, and Malik wants Adam's help proving it.]]

* AccidentalMurder: [[spoiler:It was an accident! All he did was bash her head in with a heavy antique clock! How was he supposed to know that could be fatal?]]
* ClusterFBomb: Not that he was particularly reserved beforehand, but hit all the right answers [[spoiler:while accusing him of Evelyn's murder]], and he will carpet bomb the area.
* [[IDidntMeanToKillHim I Didn't Mean To Kill Her]]: [[spoiler:He just wanted her to "shut her stupid mouth".]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: [[spoiler: He unintentionally murdered a woman who was pregnant with his child, and all that he was really concerned about afterwards was how it could potentially ruin his life.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Malik sadly speculates that her friend wanted to help him with his attitude and fell prey to it instead.
* ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish: His door code is pathetically easy to guess, presumably because anything more complicated would be too hard for him to remember.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney[=/=]ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: His family is stated to be among the wealthiest and most influential people in Shanghai. [[spoiler: It's through his family's connections to [[PrivateMilitaryContractors Belltower]] and [=LIMB=] that they were able to conceal the truth behind his girlfriend's death. Goodness knows he couldn't have done it on his own.]]
* SympatheticMurderer: [[spoiler:Tries to present himself this way. Fails miserably. Calling the pregnant girlfriend he killed a "dumb bitch" probably didn't help.]]
* WhatAnIdiot: In-universe. Faridah outright states that he's not the sharpest knife in the drawer. [[spoiler:For instance, he leaves the murder weapon just sort of lying around his apartment where anyone could break in and find it. Which is exactly what Adam does]]. Also, his door code? 1234.

!!Eliza Cassan

[[quoteright:360:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eliza_9589.PNG]]
-->''"This is Eliza Cassan, reporting to you live, from Picus."''
--> Voice: Kim Bubbs

The global celebrity Picus TV Network newsreader, who tirelessly reads news at seemingly all times. She makes appearances as a holographic presence when unable to appear in person. Eventually Adam meets her and discovers "in person" is a relative term...

* BenevolentAI: [[spoiler:She starts to develop a sense of morality as a result of watching Adam. However, unlike, say, Daedalus, she's incapable of significant decisions outside her given tasks and can't properly "rebel" aside from sharing a little information with Adam]].
* CreepyMonotone: [[spoiler:She's ''trying'' to help, but her commentary during the battle with Fedorova can have this effect]].
-->[[spoiler:'''Eliza''': She's coming, Adam. Run.]]
* EmotionlessGirl: Played with. [[spoiler:She shows emotion in her newscasts, but it's "fabricated", as she is programmed to express whatever view (and accompanying emotion) that Picus instructs her to. She begins to subvert this the more she watches Adam, and becomes fond of him, expressing affection when he meets her and helping him as much as her programming allows]].
* EveryGirlIsCuterWithHairDecs: A bit hard to spot, but she has black beads in her hair.
* {{Expy}}: Shares some traits with [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/DeusExInvisibleWar NG resonance]] and [[VideoGame/DeusEx Daedalus AI]].]]
* GothicLolita: Her outfit resembles a cross between this and the neo-Renaissance look all the rage in this period.
* GreekChorus[=/=][[MrExposition Ms Exposition]]: Nearly every level has a couple televisions switched to Picus, where Eliza comments on the events of the plot, provides details on what's happening with the people Jensen meets, and occasionally provides some foreshadowing.
* GreenEyes: Very striking when coupled with her pink and purple outfits. [[spoiler:Especially since pink and purple were colors deliberately excluded from the game's stylistic palette by the devs. It's just one more hint that she's illusory - she wears colors that do not 'exist' in ''Human Revolution'' because she herself doesn't 'exist'.]]
* HardLight: [[spoiler:''Maybe''. Her projected hologram certainly seems to be touching Adam, with her fingers shaping perfectly to where she places them just as a solid person's would, even when he moves. It could simply be a very, very ''sophisticated'' projection, but there's no way to be certain]].
* KentBrockmanNews: Played with. Picus doesn't necessarily report false information all the time, but its reporters are instructed to editorialize from a ''very'' anti-aug standpoint, which makes them seem like this. [[spoiler: Given that Eliza is a computer, it's not really her fault, either.]]
* [[RobotGirl Holographic Girl]]: [[spoiler:She shows physical affection for Adam and uses a different tone of voice with him.]]
* ItHasBeenAnHonor: [[spoiler: To Adam, should he choose the KillEmAll ending.]]
* MeaningfulName: [[spoiler:She is named after a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ELIZA computer program that was designed to handle natural language and chat with humans]]. A program that, despite its initial version using a fairly simplistic pattern matching algorithm to repeat what you say to it in the form of a question, managed to fool a bunch of people into having long conversations with it. Between this and Picus' MeaningfulName, it could be an allusion to Picus ViewersAreMorons. The ELIZA program was itself named after [[Theatre/{{Pygmalion}} Eliza Doolittle]], who shares several traits with our Miss Cassan.]]
* MysteriousWoman: Beautiful, intelligent, stylish, famous... and [[{{Foreshadowing}} no one seems to know anything about her personal life]].
* [[ProjectedMan Projected Woman]]
* RoboSpeak: [[spoiler:When she's not on the air, she tends to drop her contractions and most of her tonality.]]

!! Lady Katrina Sutherland

-->''"I'm game if you are, but equally, it might be nice to take a little break from murder and mayhem and maybe stop off somewhere for cocktails."''

A heavily-augmented freelance mercenary from the six-issue comic run.


* ActionGirl: With a hint of DarkActionGirl.ArtificialLimbs
* BadassTransplant: She's probably about as augmented as Adam.
* BlueBlood: That's ''Lady'' Katrina Sutherland, thank you.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DistressedDamsel: [[spoiler:{{Chickification}} strikes again.]]
* EmergencyTransformation: She was augmented after being thrown from her horse and then trampled.
* {{Expy}}: She's a tall, beautiful, snarky, gun-wielding, upper-class, badass British woman of adventure.
-->'''Malik:''' What the hell, Jensen? You went in there looking for some uber-geek computer-genius like Pritchard and came out with [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft]]?
* FemmeFatale: She looks like she's going to be this, but it's averted.
* HeroicSacrifice
* LadyOfWar
* NakedFirstImpression: Adam bursts in on her shower. All things considered, she takes it well.
* StuffedIntoTheFridge: [[spoiler:Played ''alarmingly'' straight.]]
* [[WeCanRebuildHim We Can Rebuild Her]]: What MI-5 promised her if she agreed to work for them. She accepted.

!!Lazarus

--> Voice: Harry Standjofski

This abrasive, foul-mouthed commentator tirelessly talks on his radio show at all times. He comments on practically everything, but mainly focuses on conspiracy theories and the politics surrounding augmentation. He starts out as fiercely anti-aug, but switches sides when he finds out who's controlling the opposition movement.

* CassandraTruth: Completing the game reveals that he had a lot of good points.
* CoincidentalBroadcast: For example, while Adam is in Hengsha, this guy just happens to be talking about Hengsha.
* LargeHam
* MeaningfulName: This is a series with important named people like ''J.C, Paul'', and ''Adam''. He's named ''Lazarus''.
** He mentions in one broadcast that he had to fake his death to escape the Illuminati in 2015 and went dark for a couple years before he started broadcasting again. It's likely his name is self-chosen because of this.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: His character sounds like and is inspired by Radio/AlexJones.

!!Letitia

--> Voice: Amanda Strawn

One of Adam's street informants back when he was a cop, this woman sifts through trash in order to find food. Her favorite drink is Maharaja Hot Devil beer.

* JiveTurkey: Which caused some backlash towards Eidos Montreal initially, as her characterization was seen as racist. Commentary on the Director's Cut suggests this controversy took them completely off guard and was simply how the actress chose to voice the character.
* TheNicknamer: She always refers to Adam as "The Captain" or some variation thereof.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: She acts like a stereotypical JiveTurkey when you first meet her, but she tones it down after her introductory lines and knows a ''lot'' about the Detroit underworld and even specifics about augmentations. There's clearly a reason Jensen kept in contact with her.
* SassyBlackWoman
* StreetSmart

!!Michelle Walthers

--> Voice: Amanda Strawn

A former nurse at the White Helix Labs, she saved [[spoiler: Adam's]] life when he was a baby when a fire destroyed the lab where he was raised at.

* ScatterbrainedSenior: She mistakes Adam for a delivery driver, and thinks that Adam is still only a child. After the quest involving her is completed, if the player tries to ask her for more information, she will continue to forget the conversation.
* [[HeKnowsTooMuch She Knows Too Much]]: Subverted, while her memory is fading and is probably not a threat to anyone, Adam suspects that the Illuminati could come after her next, asking Pritchard to order a security detail to her apartment until he can find out a better solution.

** Concept art and trailers constantly have him drinking whiskey when not in combat. His apartment(s) are full of alcohol. And even ingame cutscenes have him drinking whiskey when otherwise not on a mission.



* TrademarkFavoriteFood: See TheAlcoholic and SweetTooth above.



* StuffedIntoTheFridge: Also averted. [[spoiler:She is killed because she's a threat and a "traitor"; her death has nothing to do with her gender or anything to do with Adam personally, though Burke will taunt him about it later]].
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:She ''thinks'' she's helping Interpol; that was just what Quinn told her to ensure her cooperation. She was actually assisting a shadow organization; likely the Juggernaut Collective, a global cyberterrorist group]].

!!Garvin Quinn
--> Voice: Julian Casey

Also from ''The Missing Link'', Quinn is the main technician at Rifleman Bank Station, and also runs a little side operation for 'requisitions'.
----

* BaldOfAwesome
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler:Minor example in the ConspiracyKitchenSink that is the Deus Ex universe, but he still uses Adam's arrival on the station perfectly, and reaches most of his goals by the end of the DLC.]]
* CloudCuckoolander: Went ''fishing'' off the side of a ''cargo freighter''. There is a chair set up on the upper deck of the ship with beer and fishing equipment, and the player can also come across an email from one of the higher-ups for the fisherman to cut it out. While it's never explicitly stated that Quinn is the fisherman, if Adam visits Quinn's store early (before Keitner sends him there), he will find Quinn gone, and a note in the window stating that he had "Gone Fishing". [[spoiler: This is, of course, all a part of his cover.]]
* ConsummateLiar: [[spoiler:Part in parcel for a spy.]]
* TheCracker: [[spoiler:He's the mysterious hacker who's been enabling your escape.]]
* FakeIrish: [[spoiler:In-universe. He's actually Russian, his real name unknown.]]
* GadgeteerGenius: As Adam notes, he's really skilled for a mere technician, fixing up a one-use gadget and building a custom-made rocket launcher. [[spoiler: There's a good reason for this.]]
* GratuitousRussian: [[spoiler:He uses this all the time in his hacker persona, constantly calling Adam "bratán" (slang for "bro" or "mate"), among other things.]]
* HiddenDepths: He looks and acts like the crusty technician, but he's an unexpected GadgeteerGenius and is much kinder than he at first appears, as saving lives and acting kindly in general earns his approval. [[spoiler: And then, of course, there's his true affiliation.]]
* TheMole: [[spoiler:For an unknown outside group, most likely the Juggernaut Collective.]]
* NoSell: [[spoiler:He's immune to the Casie augmentation, probably due to an augmentation of his own.]]
* TheScrounger: He runs the only store available to you while on the station, containing mostly smuggled goods.
* TheSmartGuy: He acts as this for Keitner and Adam.

!!Wayne Haas
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Deus_Ex_HR_Wayne_Haas_1722.JPG]]

--> Voice: Marcel Jeannin
----

Formerly one of Jensen's SWAT team subordinates, he took up the post of team leader after the former quit over the Mexicantown Incident. That same event however, would lead to Haas's mental breakdown and his subsequent demotion to a precinct desk sergeant.

* TheAtoner: He is looking for absolution for his role in inciting the Mexicantown Riots.
* ButtMonkey: On top of everything that has happened to him so far, Haas can end up being fired if he lets Jensen into the morgue. This leads to him confronting and blaming Jensen at his apartment, which will either end with Jensen offering Haas a job at Sarif Industries or Jensen being forced to incapacitate or kill him when he gets violent.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: The Mexicantown Incident.
* MyGreatestFailure: As if the whole Mexicantown Incident wasn't enough, others also make comments about the fact that he's a desk jockey. For example, Chet Wagner disparagingly comments on the idea of ending up like "Secretary Haas over there."
* NeverMyFault: Haas is incapable of accepting responsibility for his actions. Granted, this is largely in response to being forced to act in a situation that he does not have any control over, but he blames Jensen for leaving him with the decision to follow an order to shoot an augmented adolescent.
* ReassignedToAntarctica: From SWAT commander to badge-toting hotel doorman, only a step above an actual firing. He's very bitter, and the guilt over what landed him there hasn't improved his state of mind.

!!Jenny Alexander

--> Voice: Lucina Davis
----

A friend of Adam's from his first four years on the Detroit Police force. Currently working undercover as a prostitute just outside of [[WrongSideOfTheTracks Derelict Row]].

* ByTheBookCop: Claims to usually be this, but going by the book doesn't work when your target's a friend of the publisher.
* DirtyHarriet
* FairCop: Jensen can even comment on it.
* {{Stripperific}}: {{Justified|Trope}}; when you meet her, she's undercover as a prostitute.

!!Jack O'Malley

--> Voice: Victor Young
----

* AffablyEvil: He can be persuaded to pay Adam part of the hitman's fee upfront, and even after [[spoiler:he finds out that Adam has betrayed him]], he's quite polite and understanding about it. Unless [[spoiler:Adam [[ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules refuses to take the bribe]]]], in which case all bets are off.
* DirtyCop
* NotSoDifferent: Tries to pull this on Jensen if the 'Cold' dialogue choice is taken when arresting him, stating that they both view the world through cold, hard facts.
* ProperlyParanoid: Jenny calls him paranoid; considering he's a [[DirtyCop dirty cop]] who's [[spoiler:trying to start a gang war]], it's hard to blame him for taking numerous and varied precautions.
* SmugSnake

!!Chet Wagner

--> Voice: James Rankin
----

* DirtyCop: He was never a model policeman to begin with, hacking his office email suggests that he takes bribes, and his unreliability [[spoiler: proves useful to the conspirators, as he is assigned to the Sarif Industries Attack Investigation and, predictably, botches it horribly.]]
* DirtyCoward: One threat is all it takes. Granted, it's a pretty impressive threat, but ''still''.
* FantasticRacism: Makes about one anti-Aug slur per sentence before Jensen either intimidates or blackmails him.
* {{Jerkass}}: Even a station-wide e-mail sent out warning officers that anti-Aug/anti-Natural slurs will be met with harsh punishment ''still'' doesn't stop him from calling Adam things like 'chrome boy' and 'metalhead'.
* SmugSnake: The best part of dealing with him is making a well-placed threat and watching all of his arrogant bravado come crashing down like a house of cards.

!!Officer Nicholas

--> Voice: Shawn Baichoo
----

* PoliceAreUseless: Or rather, The Police Are Otherwise Occupied trying to pacify the fire-bombing rioters through Detroit.
* NervousWreck: Granted, the reason he's nervous is because he's the only one aware of a ''bomb threat''.

!!Sir Hugh Darrow

--> Voice: Arthur Holden

A billionaire Nobel Prize winner and a close friend of David Sarif. Considered the "father" of augmentations technology. He is currently working on a project named "Panchaea," a massive hole in the ocean that is supposed to change global warming, and has other geoengineering projects planned. Picus tries to give somewhat favorable coverage of this project ([[{{Nepotism}} presumably due to Picus having been founded by Hugh's father]]). He plans to show the world what augmentation can do for humanity...
----

* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:While Darrow's scheme doesn't go entirely as planned, the chaos he caused ultimately fulfills his goal of turning public opinion against augmentation technology.]]
* BigBad: [[spoiler: While he has competition for the role, Darrow ultimately comes closest to realizing his plans.]]
* TheCobblersChildrenHaveNoShoes: Darrow is, more than anyone else, ''the'' driving mind behind mechanical augmentation, one of the great transhumanist philosophers and a multi-billionaire who could get anything in the world... but he also has a rare genetic condition which caused his body to violently reject all attempts at mechanical augmentation, leaving him on the sidelines to observe his vision of a bright new future rise and move on without him.
* CreatorBacklash: [[spoiler: In-Universe. See EvilIsPetty.]]
* EvilBrit: [[spoiler:Complete with a master plan involving massive projects and something akin to a superweapon.]]
* EvilIsPetty: [[spoiler: He's rather pissed and bitter his own invention can't do a thing for him, so he hijacks the Illuminati's plans and tweaks them so he can make sure the whole world gets to know just how much he's come to hate his own creation.]]
* {{Expy}}: Similar to [[VideoGame/MetalGear Patriots-era Major Zero]] in some ways.
* GeniusCripple: He's missing an arm, has a leg brace, and walks with a vaguely sci-fi-looking cane. It's visually distinctive, but becomes even more so once you realize how much it sticks out in a world where medical augmentations exist. [[spoiler: This becomes a plot point during his 'boss battle'.]]
* GreenEyedMonster: [[spoiler: He displays some jealousy over the fact that he has a genetic disorder that keeps him from using augments himself.]]
* HandicappedBadass: [[spoiler: When confronting him in the Panchaea tower, take note of his cane. It is covered in blood, implying that this crippled old man beat at least one of the insane augs to death with a stick.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler: Calling him on this is one of the ways to win the social battle with him, but only if you've destabilized him and called attention to his jealousy of augs.]]
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: [[spoiler: How he justifies his actions, naturally.]]
* KnightTemplar: [[spoiler: He's prepared to cause the deaths of millions to eliminate augmentation.]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler: Implied; he points directly to Hyron (which he helped create) as one of the reasons why augmentation is very, very ''bad''.]]
** [[spoiler: He will say this, minus the God part, if you play the conversation with him right at the end of the game.]]
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Arthur Holden does a ''very'' convincing British accent for the most part. However, a few of his vowel sounds during the last chat with Darrow sound a bit ''too'' North American.
* TheStarscream: [[spoiler: Darrow's Illuminati partners want to use augmentation as part of a worldwide AssimilationPlot using their new biochip to control the thoughts of everyone with an augmentation after the technology becomes universal. Darrow secretly opposes this plan, and his own scheme is to send a modified signal that turns every augmented person on the planet a murderous lunatic, in order to show the still-human population the dangers of augmentation in a way so widespread and massive that it cannot be covered up.]]
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: [[spoiler: Even Picus seems to like him, despite their obvious anti-augmentation bias. Turns out it's because he's in on TheConspiracy. The fact that his father founded Picus probably helps, too.]]
* WalkingSpoiler
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler: Based on his knowledge of the Illuminati's plans, Darrow sees his only two choices as either the mass murder of millions, or the eternal slavery of all humanity to the Illuminati. When confronting him it's possible for Adam to convince him humanity is capable of [[TakeAThirdOption Taking A Third Option]]]].

!!Mengyao

--> Voice: Vicky Wong

One of Darrow's representatives, involved in the Panchaea project.

!!Dr. Vera Marcovic

--> Voice: Leni Parker

She works at the L.I.M.B. clinic in Detroit. Unlike David Sarif, she believes that Adam should have more choice regarding the progress of his augmentations.

!!Zhao Yun Ru

--> Voice: Jane Luk

The CEO of Tai Yong Medical, a Chinese bio-tech company seeking to become the world leader in the augmentation market and a direct competitor to Sarif Industries. She warns Adam about "these men" who "control global interests on a whim," mysteriously neglecting her own involvement in said global interests.
----

* BigBadWannabe: [[spoiler:A rare instance where such a character actually ends up as the FinalBoss... although not because they're actually the power behind the throne.]]
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Her overall goal is to ruthlessly eliminate Tai Yong's competition and establish a monopoly on the augmentation market [[spoiler: in order to ensure the universal distribution of the Illuminati's new mind-controlling biochip. She is even willing to merge with Hyron to do this, lacking any other ambition.]]
* [[DistractedByTheSexy Distracted By The Feeling Up]]: She uses this technique on Adam.
* DragonLady: She is commonly referred to as the Dragon Queen, her dress is a combination of traditional Chinese wear and neo-Renaissance frills, [[spoiler: ''and'' she uses a bit of seduction on Adam.]]
* {{Expy}}: Of [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/DeusEx Maggie Chow]]]], despite having a different career.
* FinalBoss: [[spoiler:Technically, Hyron is, but she is the final part of it that needs to be defeated.]]
** EvilIsNotAToy: [[spoiler:At the end of the game, she merges with Hyron to try and assume direct control over the world's augmented population. As soon as she does, she finds out too late her biochip is incompatible with the system, and her attempts to force the technologies to interface backfires. Pretty literally, in fact: the uncontrolled energy burns her up from the inside out.]]
* FreudianExcuse: She was a champion gymnast when she was a child until the accident that led to her being augmented. She'll do anything to reclaim [[IcarusAllusion her moment in the sun]], when the spotlight was on her and no one else.
* LargeHam: Listen to her when she's trying to convince Jensen she's "not a bad girl."
* NotSoDifferent: When [[spoiler:attempting to merge with Hyron]] she says to Adam that neither of them would ever trust anyone else with the power they're grappling over - not the Illuminati, not their corporate allies, no one. And, well, she's right.
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:After she hooks herself up to Hyron, she becomes much less coherent and cool; her reasoning goes from "Someone has to save the world," to screaming about staying in control.]]
* SmugSnake: If the player [[spoiler:didn't take the upgrade]], her attempt to smugly incapacitate Adam will fall right on its face. There are also hints that she's not as useful to the conspiracy as she'd like to be and [[spoiler:her attempt to integrate with Hyron will end poorly for her, though she refuses to acknowledge it]].
* UnknownRival: She hates Sarif with passion for several obvious reasons, like being her most powerful and successful competitor and crafting the man [[spoiler: who would bring her down very hard]]. In return, Sarif makes near to no mention of Zhao. While it's a given he's not her ally, he doesn't seem to hate her personally the way she does him.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler: If you pay attention to her ranting in the final battle, she is pretty bent on making sure she can take control of the aug population to prove she can control Hyron even as it was trying to reject her, and even earlier she is hellbent on making sure she can dominate her competition. In both cases she or other people in the game blatantly tell you she hates losing and doesn't want to be a bit player at anything. It's also hinted her position in the Illuminati wasn't as important as she thought it was, so she wanted to make sure she always remained a critical part of it.]]

!!Zeke Sanders/[[spoiler:Ezekiel Sandoval]]

--> Voice: Danny Blanco Hall

Leader of the Purity First militant organization, best-known for leading an attack on Sarif Industries at their Milwaukee Junction manufacturing plant. He has some unexpected familial connections that only become apparent much later.
----

* CyberneticsEatYourSoul: He certainly seems to believe this, becoming convinced that his [[ElectronicEyes cyber eye]] was driving him out of control when he had a PSTD episode after getting it implanted. He has since had it removed and becomes a literally militant anti-augmentation activist.
* EnemyMine: If you talk him into releasing the hostage and allow him to escape, he will give you the access codes for the FEMA camp in Highland Park in exchange later.
* EyepatchOfPower: To replace the [[ElectronicEyes cybereye]] he had removed.
* GratuitousSpanish: Uses a lot of Spanish slang in conversation, and frequently swaps out English terms for Spanish ones in emails to his men.
* IGaveMyWord[=/=]ExactWords: When he says that he considers his debt to Adam repaid, he means it. He will not hesitate to kill Adam during Purity First's next big operation. This can be cut short if you're ProperlyParanoid and kill him right then and there after he gives you the codes.
* ShellShockedVeteran: He was injured by an IED in Afghanistan, developing PTSD as a result, which probably contributed to his bad reaction to getting augmented.
* SuicideByCop: According to another character, the "crazy" thing his augmentations "made" him do was start shooting in a mall hoping to die. This was apparently a combination of the pain of Neuropozyne withdrawal triggering his PTSD. Obvious the attempt was unsuccessful, as Taggart supposedly talked him down. He became a serious anti-aug convert after that.
* UnwittingPawn: His operation was used as a cover by [[spoiler: the conspiracy]] to get their hacker into Sarif's manufacturing plant.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He and Purity First are far more militant in their desire to end augmentation than Humanity Front. [[spoiler: Of course, Humanity Front's leadership really wants to control augmentation technology rather than eliminate it outright]].

!!William Taggart

--> Voice: Bruce Dinsmore

The founder of Humanity Front and the leader of the anti-augmentation movement, claiming it is a dangerous technology with unclear means of regulation that the world is not ready for until it can be safely controlled. This turns out to be more or less his true motive. The real secret is where he thinks the control of augmentation and augmented individuals should lie...
----

* [[AmbiguouslyChristian Ambiguously Mormon]]: He runs a rehab clinic in Utah and alludes to his Latter-Day Saint upbringing in an email, and his view could ''possibly'' be framed in terms of Mormon beliefs, but it's not clear whether or not he's still observant.
* AncientConspiracy: [[spoiler:Cheerfully invoked. He observes that using the Illuminati name is a ''great'' way to get financiers to pony up.]]
* BrainwashingForTheGreaterGood: Possibly. He has a rehab center in Utah, where people are apparently 'convinced' to get rid of their augmentations.
* BreakTheHaughty: Winning the persuasion battle with him can result in this. Particularly sweet on account of the whole "in front of TV conference" aspect.
* TheFundamentalist: The Humanity Front's anti-augmentation policy seems to be largely based around not 'playing God' or 'upsetting the way human beings are meant to be'. As it turns out, this is just a technique to rally the lowest common denominator; Taggart's actual concern about aug research is that [[spoiler:it's accelerating too quickly for the Illuminati to consolidate control over it.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: Claims that enhancing the body's natural limitations with technology is wrong. He wears glasses. Like JC Denton before him, his vision is augmented.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: A peaceful variant. He's leading Humanity Front to restrict and weaken the augmentation movement but he does have understandable reasons for it. [[spoiler: ...Or so it seems at first. His wife's death is only half of it. The other seems to be furthering the power of the Illuminati.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:A variation in ''[[Literature/DeusExIcarusEffect Icarus Effect]]''; the Illuminati decide to have Taggart killed by one of their augmented assassins during an important UN event at Geneva, the idea being that he becomes a martyr and the Humanity Front gain momentum from it, leading the charge to regulate[=/=]ban augmentations. When the assassination fails, the Illuminati's plans continue without much alteration and Taggart remains loyal to them (probably because he knows defying them would not end well for him).]]

!!Isaias Sandoval

A former surgeon and currently Taggart's right-hand man. He is opposed to augmentation because of the effects he observed on his patients in the past.
----

* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:Potentially after Taggart's big press conference. You can avert it if you say the right things. If you confront Sandoval ''without'' exposing his activities to Taggart, [[DevelopersForesight he'll just try to shoot Adam.]]]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler: Helps the Tyrants to circumvent the effects of the Sarif scientist's GPL trackers, unaware until it was too late that they were planning on launching a full-scale bloody attack on Sarif headquarters. He confesses to Adam that he "died that night."]]

[[folder: Criminals]]

!!Derelict Row Ballers

Detroit's largest street gang, they are rabidly anti-augmentation and control an area surrounding an abandoned textile plant in downtown Detroit.

* BoringButPractical: They shun augs and use only standard weapons, but have a large number of members, no dependency on an expensive drug, and have support from anti-augs (who are implied to be the majority of people in this universe).
* FantasticRacism: Against augmented individuals.

!!Motor City Bangers

Detroit's second-largest street gang. Not as large as the DRB, but they make up for it by embracing augmentations to make each individual member more formidable.

* AffablyEvil: So long as you don't raise a gun in their faces, they're pretty friendly to Jensen. Hell, you even come across one guy who gives you intel on the FEMA compound and offers upgrades and ammo for a cheap price.
* AwesomeButImpractical: Their augs give them an edge in combat but they depend on an expensive drug to maintain their wellbeing, have fewer members due to widespread augmentation discrimination and as a sidequest notes, are much easier to identify due to their flashy augment implants.
* BlingBlingBang: They sure like gold-plated cyberlimbs.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Though it feels like a parody more than anything:
-->'''MCB Gang Leader''': Rest in peace, Big Rizzle.
-->'''Adam Jensen''': ''(bored)'' Yeah. RIP.

!!Harvesters

This vicious triad from Hengsha is so-named because they attack augmented people in order to steal their implants, which they then sell on the black market or install in themselves.

* AffablyEvil: Several members will compliment Adam on his augmentations very politely and warn him against walking the streets in Hengsha alone - it's very dangerous, especially for someone like him. It can be really hard to tell where genuine compliment ends and where ImpliedDeathThreat begins with these guys.
* BodyHorror: They ''rip the cybernetic parts out of you'', leaving you crippled on the ground, and sell the augs or use them themselves.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Several members have really deep voices, going hand in hand with the trope below.
* ScaryBlackMan: Their membership contains a high quantity of black men with American accents and deep voices, despite the fact that they are a gang based in a Chinese city.
** Could be considered TruthInTelevision; many Asian crime syndicates will employ expat foreigners in low-level positions because institutional racism often prevents them from finding legitimate work. It's also possible that Hengsha, like Dubai in real life, was constructed largely by immigrant laborers, which would provide a large pool of expat foreigners for the Harvesters to draw from.
* TheSingularity: Some of them seem to idealise augmentations and hold TheSingularity as their end goal. The compliments these guys give Adam come off a lot more genuine than the [[ImpliedDeathThreat Implied Death Threats]] coming from the rest.
* SinisterShades: They seem rather fond of these. (Like Jensen, they are probably augmented to help them better find potential targets.)

!!Tong Si Hung

--> Voice: Dennis Akiyama

The owner of the popular Hengsha nightclub, The Hive, as well as the biggest crime lord in the city's underworld. Later revealed to be the father of Tracer Tong from the original game.

* TheBartender: His initial disguise.
* DeadpanSnarker
-->'''Jensen''': Tong! How did you get this frequency?
-->'''Tong''': Ancient Chinese secret.
* EnemyMine: Agrees to help Jensen solely because he thinks he'll cause a lot more trouble for Belltower. [[spoiler:Though helping his son make a getaway by using Jensen as a distraction was probably the true reason he was so willing to assist him.]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has some rather nasty burn scars on his neck and chest.
* KarmaHoudini: One of the very few major characters in the game that cannot be hurt or killed, and his plot importance means that Adam has no choice but to leave him to his criminal activities, including his ties to human trafficking. [[note]] The only consolation is that when you experience the glitch while leaving his office for the final time, Tong is unaffected while his Harvesters (and Adam, if not upgraded) recoil in pain. This logically means that Tong became just another of the screaming madmen after Darrow launched his signal.[[/note]]
* KingIncognito: Adam perceives him as this, but he insults Adam for not figuring it out during their first conversation. Adam can actually spot him as such if he has the social aug.
* PapaWolf: Don't mess with his son. [[spoiler: He'll sic ''Jensen'' on you.]]
* OffscreenTeleportation: Tong seems to be capable of this. [[spoiler: After talking to him when he is disguised as a barkeeper he sends you to his office to meet him]]. Even when you use the most direct path to get there, he always manages to be waiting for you.
* RedRightHand: It's never explained where his horrible facial scarring came from, but it's a good bet it has something to do with why he also has a cyberarm.
* ThirdPersonPerson: When talking to Adam at the bar, though he switches once his identity is revealed.
* TheTriadsAndTheTongs: He leads Hengsha's local triad gang, the Harvesters.

!!Bobby Bao

--> Voice: Russell Yuen

The main bartender of the Hive, who also helps to run the shadier side of Tong's business.

* TheBartender: A rather corrupt version.
* LoanShark: Bao runs a scam for the Harvesters, offering to give people augmentations for no money up front, then shaking them down for monthly payments afterwards.

!!Arie Van Bruggen

--> Voice: Alex Ivanovici

The hacker who was puppeting the infiltrator during the second attack on Sarif Industries, he uses the screen-name "Windmill" and is also called the "Dutchman" even though his accent is more Caribbean. [[note]]Of course, there are the islands of Curacao, Bonaire, and Aruba, all part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. And that's not even counting the possibility that he could hail from Suriname.[[/note]]

* BiTheWay: Possibly. His greeting for Adam is, "Sorry, man, you're not my type," there's an interesting e-mail sent to the landlord of Alice Garden Pods, and if you look at all the sticky notes plastered around the computer in his apartment, you'll find several with phone numbers and girls' names written on them, and one sticky note reminding him to buy more [[BreadEggsMilkSquick broccoli and lube]].
--->'''HIVE-MASTER@THEHIVE.HI.PRC:'''[[note]]To: guestssupport@alicegardenpods.hi.prc[[/note]] make sure 301 gets whatever the fuck he wants. boys, girls, internet access, sodan noodles, or the fucking moon.
* DuelingHackers: [=Nucl3arsnake=]/Frank Pritchard vs Windmill/Arie van Bruggen, though it seems that Frank is the better of the two. From the frustration that Windmill expresses in his e-mails, Frank was doing ''just fine'' keeping him at bay; it wasn't until Windmill discovered [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Sarif's backdoor access]] that he was able to get into Sarif Industries' system. In other words, Van Bruggen needed the computer security equivalent of the bank's owner leaving his vault and front door completely open and unlocked to get past Pritchard.
* HeKnowsTooMuch: One of the reasons Belltower comes after him. He took steps about this as well, squirreling away evidence and little "surprises" in the TYM mainframe. He just didn't anticipate ''having to go back for it.''
* MisplacedAccent: Detailed above.
* PlayfulHacker: "I am looking at your bank account, and... you know, Sarif really ought to pay you more..."
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: His accent isn't Dutch, it's Caribbean which would make him from the Dutch Antilles or Suriname.

[[folder: Other]]

!!Brent Radford

--> Voice: Al Goulem

An aged private investigator who used to be a detective. He was hired by David Sarif to do a background check on Adam Jensen. Unfortunately, his investigation attracted some very pointed attention.

* DyingAsYourself: He'd rather [[spoiler:die than become augmented]], because he believes that augs have lost their humanity. [[spoiler:You can talk him out of it, assuming you have the CASIE upgrade and you hit the right dialogue choices]].
* FantasticRacism: Uses the harshest anti-Aug slurs heard in the game, calling Adam a 'robot' and telling Adam that he's not even human. He asks Adam what it was like to die, and whether Adam even has a soul, or if that was taken out of him when he was "built". He also refers to Adam's augmented body as a "metal corpse". ''Damn''.
* GuideDangIt: You can [[spoiler:save him]], but you need the CASIE upgrade to do it.
* ICannotSelfTerminate: He asks Adam to give him [[spoiler:a lethal overdose of morphine to [[MercyKill end his suffering]]]]. Adam can choose whether or not to oblige him.
* {{Jerkass}}: To augmented people. Just ''look'' at what he says to Adam, even though Adam [[spoiler:just took out the man who shot him, is perfectly civil to him, and, depending on player choices, ''trying to save his life'']].
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's more concerned about [[spoiler:Michelle's]] welfare than his own, despite the fact that he's never met her; all he knows is that she's kind and that Adam owes her his life. Radford insists that Adam get to her before Adam's enemies do, and implores him to save her.
* PetTheDog: For all that he considers Adam to be inhuman, he still [[spoiler:gives up all the information he can even as he's dying]]. Depending on the dialogue chosen, he may decide that Adam's "got a lot of heart, [[YouAreACreditToYourRace for a robot]]".
* YouAreACreditToYourRace: Will tell Jensen that he has "a lot of heart for a robot," with the right dialogue choices.

!!Cassandra Reed

--> Voice: Susan Glover

Megan's mother, and dissatisfied with the investigation into her death.

* [[GoodParents Good Mother]]: If you check Megan's computer at the beginning of the game, there's an e-mail message from Cassandra expressing her concern and asking Megan to call her more often.
* HotScientist: She has her daughter's features, and has aged very gracefully.
* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Mother, Like Daughter]]: The same e-mail mentioned above also reveals that Cassandra is scientist, and she often buries herself in her work. She even uses the phrase verbatim.

!!Lee Hong

--> Voice: Zen Shane Lim

The ex-boyfriend of one of Malik's deceased friends. [[spoiler: He was the one who killed her, and Malik wants Adam's help proving it.]]

* AccidentalMurder: [[spoiler:It was an accident! All he did was bash her head in with a heavy antique clock! How was he supposed to know that could be fatal?]]
* ClusterFBomb: Not that he was particularly reserved beforehand, but hit all the right answers [[spoiler:while accusing him of Evelyn's murder]], and he will carpet bomb the area.
* [[IDidntMeanToKillHim I Didn't Mean To Kill Her]]: [[spoiler:He just wanted her to "shut her stupid mouth".]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: [[spoiler: He unintentionally murdered a woman who was pregnant with his child, and all that he was really concerned about afterwards was how it could potentially ruin his life.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Malik sadly speculates that her friend wanted to help him with his attitude and fell prey to it instead.
* ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish: His door code is pathetically easy to guess, presumably because anything more complicated would be too hard for him to remember.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney[=/=]ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: His family is stated to be among the wealthiest and most influential people in Shanghai. [[spoiler: It's through his family's connections to [[PrivateMilitaryContractors Belltower]] and [=LIMB=] that they were able to conceal the truth behind his girlfriend's death. Goodness knows he couldn't have done it on his own.]]
* SympatheticMurderer: [[spoiler:Tries to present himself this way. Fails miserably. Calling the pregnant girlfriend he killed a "dumb bitch" probably didn't help.]]
* WhatAnIdiot: In-universe. Faridah outright states that he's not the sharpest knife in the drawer. [[spoiler:For instance, he leaves the murder weapon just sort of lying around his apartment where anyone could break in and find it. Which is exactly what Adam does]]. Also, his door code? 1234.

!!Eliza Cassan

[[quoteright:360:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eliza_9589.PNG]]
-->''"This is Eliza Cassan, reporting to you live, from Picus."''
--> Voice: Kim Bubbs

The global celebrity Picus TV Network newsreader, who tirelessly reads news at seemingly all times. She makes appearances as a holographic presence when unable to appear in person. Eventually Adam meets her and discovers "in person" is a relative term...

* BenevolentAI: [[spoiler:She starts to develop a sense of morality as a result of watching Adam. However, unlike, say, Daedalus, she's incapable of significant decisions outside her given tasks and can't properly "rebel" aside from sharing a little information with Adam]].
* CreepyMonotone: [[spoiler:She's ''trying'' to help, but her commentary during the battle with Fedorova can have this effect]].
-->[[spoiler:'''Eliza''': She's coming, Adam. Run.]]
* EmotionlessGirl: Played with. [[spoiler:She shows emotion in her newscasts, but it's "fabricated", as she is programmed to express whatever view (and accompanying emotion) that Picus instructs her to. She begins to subvert this the more she watches Adam, and becomes fond of him, expressing affection when he meets her and helping him as much as her programming allows]].
* EveryGirlIsCuterWithHairDecs: A bit hard to spot, but she has black beads in her hair.
* {{Expy}}: Shares some traits with [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/DeusExInvisibleWar NG resonance]] and [[VideoGame/DeusEx Daedalus AI]].]]
* GothicLolita: Her outfit resembles a cross between this and the neo-Renaissance look all the rage in this period.
* GreekChorus[=/=][[MrExposition Ms Exposition]]: Nearly every level has a couple televisions switched to Picus, where Eliza comments on the events of the plot, provides details on what's happening with the people Jensen meets, and occasionally provides some foreshadowing.
* GreenEyes: Very striking when coupled with her pink and purple outfits. [[spoiler:Especially since pink and purple were colors deliberately excluded from the game's stylistic palette by the devs. It's just one more hint that she's illusory - she wears colors that do not 'exist' in ''Human Revolution'' because she herself doesn't 'exist'.]]
* HardLight: [[spoiler:''Maybe''. Her projected hologram certainly seems to be touching Adam, with her fingers shaping perfectly to where she places them just as a solid person's would, even when he moves. It could simply be a very, very ''sophisticated'' projection, but there's no way to be certain]].
* KentBrockmanNews: Played with. Picus doesn't necessarily report false information all the time, but its reporters are instructed to editorialize from a ''very'' anti-aug standpoint, which makes them seem like this. [[spoiler: Given that Eliza is a computer, it's not really her fault, either.]]
* [[RobotGirl Holographic Girl]]: [[spoiler:She shows physical affection for Adam and uses a different tone of voice with him.]]
* ItHasBeenAnHonor: [[spoiler: To Adam, should he choose the KillEmAll ending.]]
* MeaningfulName: [[spoiler:She is named after a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ELIZA computer program that was designed to handle natural language and chat with humans]]. A program that, despite its initial version using a fairly simplistic pattern matching algorithm to repeat what you say to it in the form of a question, managed to fool a bunch of people into having long conversations with it. Between this and Picus' MeaningfulName, it could be an allusion to Picus ViewersAreMorons. The ELIZA program was itself named after [[Theatre/{{Pygmalion}} Eliza Doolittle]], who shares several traits with our Miss Cassan.]]
* MysteriousWoman: Beautiful, intelligent, stylish, famous... and [[{{Foreshadowing}} no one seems to know anything about her personal life]].
* [[ProjectedMan Projected Woman]]
* RoboSpeak: [[spoiler:When she's not on the air, she tends to drop her contractions and most of her tonality.]]

!! Lady Katrina Sutherland

-->''"I'm game if you are, but equally, it might be nice to take a little break from murder and mayhem and maybe stop off somewhere for cocktails."''

A heavily-augmented freelance mercenary from the six-issue comic run.


* ActionGirl: With a hint of DarkActionGirl.ArtificialLimbs
* BadassTransplant: She's probably about as augmented as Adam.
* BlueBlood: That's ''Lady'' Katrina Sutherland, thank you.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DistressedDamsel: [[spoiler:{{Chickification}} strikes again.]]
* EmergencyTransformation: She was augmented after being thrown from her horse and then trampled.
* {{Expy}}: She's a tall, beautiful, snarky, gun-wielding, upper-class, badass British woman of adventure.
-->'''Malik:''' What the hell, Jensen? You went in there looking for some uber-geek computer-genius like Pritchard and came out with [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft]]?
* FemmeFatale: She looks like she's going to be this, but it's averted.
* HeroicSacrifice
* LadyOfWar
* NakedFirstImpression: Adam bursts in on her shower. All things considered, she takes it well.
* StuffedIntoTheFridge: [[spoiler:Played ''alarmingly'' straight.]]
* [[WeCanRebuildHim We Can Rebuild Her]]: What MI-5 promised her if she agreed to work for them. She accepted.

!!Lazarus

--> Voice: Harry Standjofski

This abrasive, foul-mouthed commentator tirelessly talks on his radio show at all times. He comments on practically everything, but mainly focuses on conspiracy theories and the politics surrounding augmentation. He starts out as fiercely anti-aug, but switches sides when he finds out who's controlling the opposition movement.

* CassandraTruth: Completing the game reveals that he had a lot of good points.
* CoincidentalBroadcast: For example, while Adam is in Hengsha, this guy just happens to be talking about Hengsha.
* LargeHam
* MeaningfulName: This is a series with important named people like ''J.C, Paul'', and ''Adam''. He's named ''Lazarus''.
** He mentions in one broadcast that he had to fake his death to escape the Illuminati in 2015 and went dark for a couple years before he started broadcasting again. It's likely his name is self-chosen because of this.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: His character sounds like and is inspired by Radio/AlexJones.

!!Letitia

--> Voice: Amanda Strawn

One of Adam's street informants back when he was a cop, this woman sifts through trash in order to find food. Her favorite drink is Maharaja Hot Devil beer.

* JiveTurkey: Which caused some backlash towards Eidos Montreal initially, as her characterization was seen as racist. Commentary on the Director's Cut suggests this controversy took them completely off guard and was simply how the actress chose to voice the character.
* TheNicknamer: She always refers to Adam as "The Captain" or some variation thereof.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: She acts like a stereotypical JiveTurkey when you first meet her, but she tones it down after her introductory lines and knows a ''lot'' about the Detroit underworld and even specifics about augmentations. There's clearly a reason Jensen kept in contact with her.
* SassyBlackWoman
* StreetSmart

!!Michelle Walthers

--> Voice: Amanda Strawn

A former nurse at the White Helix Labs, she saved [[spoiler: Adam's]] life when he was a baby when a fire destroyed the lab where he was raised at.

* ScatterbrainedSenior: She mistakes Adam for a delivery driver, and thinks that Adam is still only a child. After the quest involving her is completed, if the player tries to ask her for more information, she will continue to forget the conversation.
* [[HeKnowsTooMuch She Knows Too Much]]: Subverted, while her memory is fading and is probably not a threat to anyone, Adam suspects that the Illuminati could come after her next, asking Pritchard to order a security detail to her apartment until he can find out a better solution.

[[/folder]]

to:

* StuffedIntoTheFridge: Also averted. [[spoiler:She is killed because she's a threat and a "traitor"; her death has nothing to do with her gender or anything to do with Adam personally, though Burke will taunt him about it later]].
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:She ''thinks'' she's helping Interpol; that was just what Quinn told her to ensure her cooperation. She was actually assisting a shadow organization; likely the Juggernaut Collective, a global cyberterrorist group]].

!!Garvin Quinn
--> Voice: Julian Casey

Also from ''The Missing Link'', Quinn is the main technician at Rifleman Bank Station, and also runs a little side operation for 'requisitions'.
----

* BaldOfAwesome
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler:Minor example in the ConspiracyKitchenSink that is the Deus Ex universe, but he still uses Adam's arrival on the station perfectly, and reaches most of his goals by the end of the DLC.]]
* CloudCuckoolander: Went ''fishing'' off the side of a ''cargo freighter''. There is a chair set up on the upper deck of the ship with beer and fishing equipment, and the player can also come across an email from one of the higher-ups for the fisherman to cut it out. While it's never explicitly stated that Quinn is the fisherman, if Adam visits Quinn's store early (before Keitner sends him there), he will find Quinn gone, and a note in the window stating that he had "Gone Fishing". [[spoiler: This is, of course, all a part of his cover.]]
* ConsummateLiar: [[spoiler:Part in parcel for a spy.]]
* TheCracker: [[spoiler:He's the mysterious hacker who's been enabling your escape.]]
* FakeIrish: [[spoiler:In-universe. He's actually Russian, his real name unknown.]]
* GadgeteerGenius: As Adam notes, he's really skilled for a mere technician, fixing up a one-use gadget and building a custom-made rocket launcher. [[spoiler: There's a good reason for this.]]
* GratuitousRussian: [[spoiler:He uses this all the time in his hacker persona, constantly calling Adam "bratán" (slang for "bro" or "mate"), among other things.]]
* HiddenDepths: He looks and acts like the crusty technician, but he's an unexpected GadgeteerGenius and is much kinder than he at first appears, as saving lives and acting kindly in general earns his approval. [[spoiler: And then, of course, there's his true affiliation.]]
* TheMole: [[spoiler:For an unknown outside group, most likely the Juggernaut Collective.]]
* NoSell: [[spoiler:He's immune to the Casie augmentation, probably due to an augmentation of his own.]]
* TheScrounger: He runs the only store available to you while on the station, containing mostly smuggled goods.
* TheSmartGuy: He acts as this for Keitner and Adam.

!!Wayne Haas
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Deus_Ex_HR_Wayne_Haas_1722.JPG]]

--> Voice: Marcel Jeannin
----

Formerly one of Jensen's SWAT team subordinates, he took up the post of team leader after the former quit over the Mexicantown Incident. That same event however, would lead to Haas's mental breakdown and his subsequent demotion to a precinct desk sergeant.

* TheAtoner: He is looking for absolution for his role in inciting the Mexicantown Riots.
* ButtMonkey: On top of everything that has happened to him so far, Haas can end up being fired if he lets Jensen into the morgue. This leads to him confronting and blaming Jensen at his apartment, which will either end with Jensen offering Haas a job at Sarif Industries or Jensen being forced to incapacitate or kill him when he gets violent.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: The Mexicantown Incident.
* MyGreatestFailure: As if the whole Mexicantown Incident wasn't enough, others also make comments about the fact that he's a desk jockey. For example, Chet Wagner disparagingly comments on the idea of ending up like "Secretary Haas over there."
* NeverMyFault: Haas is incapable of accepting responsibility for his actions. Granted, this is largely in response to being forced to act in a situation that he does not have any control over, but he blames Jensen for leaving him with the decision to follow an order to shoot an augmented adolescent.
* ReassignedToAntarctica: From SWAT commander to badge-toting hotel doorman, only a step above an actual firing. He's very bitter, and the guilt over what landed him there hasn't improved his state of mind.

!!Jenny Alexander

--> Voice: Lucina Davis
----

A friend of Adam's from his first four years on the Detroit Police force. Currently working undercover as a prostitute just outside of [[WrongSideOfTheTracks Derelict Row]].

* ByTheBookCop: Claims to usually be this, but going by the book doesn't work when your target's a friend of the publisher.
* DirtyHarriet
* FairCop: Jensen can even comment on it.
* {{Stripperific}}: {{Justified|Trope}}; when you meet her, she's undercover as a prostitute.

!!Jack O'Malley

--> Voice: Victor Young
----

* AffablyEvil: He can be persuaded to pay Adam part of the hitman's fee upfront, and even after [[spoiler:he finds out that Adam has betrayed him]], he's quite polite and understanding about it. Unless [[spoiler:Adam [[ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules refuses to take the bribe]]]], in which case all bets are off.
* DirtyCop
* NotSoDifferent: Tries to pull this on Jensen if the 'Cold' dialogue choice is taken when arresting him, stating that they both view the world through cold, hard facts.
* ProperlyParanoid: Jenny calls him paranoid; considering he's a [[DirtyCop dirty cop]] who's [[spoiler:trying to start a gang war]], it's hard to blame him for taking numerous and varied precautions.
* SmugSnake

!!Chet Wagner

--> Voice: James Rankin
----

* DirtyCop: He was never a model policeman to begin with, hacking his office email suggests that he takes bribes, and his unreliability [[spoiler: proves useful to the conspirators, as he is assigned to the Sarif Industries Attack Investigation and, predictably, botches it horribly.]]
* DirtyCoward: One threat is all it takes. Granted, it's a pretty impressive threat, but ''still''.
* FantasticRacism: Makes about one anti-Aug slur per sentence before Jensen either intimidates or blackmails him.
* {{Jerkass}}: Even a station-wide e-mail sent out warning officers that anti-Aug/anti-Natural slurs will be met with harsh punishment ''still'' doesn't stop him from calling Adam things like 'chrome boy' and 'metalhead'.
* SmugSnake: The best part of dealing with him is making a well-placed threat and watching all of his arrogant bravado come crashing down like a house of cards.

!!Officer Nicholas

--> Voice: Shawn Baichoo
----

* PoliceAreUseless: Or rather, The Police Are Otherwise Occupied trying to pacify the fire-bombing rioters through Detroit.
* NervousWreck: Granted, the reason he's nervous is because he's the only one aware of a ''bomb threat''.

[[folder: Pro-Augs]]

!!Sir Hugh Darrow

--> Voice: Arthur Holden

A billionaire Nobel Prize winner and a close friend of David Sarif. Considered the "father" of augmentations technology. He is currently working on a project named "Panchaea," a massive hole in the ocean that is supposed to change global warming, and has other geoengineering projects planned. Picus tries to give somewhat favorable coverage of this project ([[{{Nepotism}} presumably due to Picus having been founded by Hugh's father]]). He plans to show the world what augmentation can do for humanity...
----

* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:While Darrow's scheme doesn't go entirely as planned, the chaos he caused ultimately fulfills his goal of turning public opinion against augmentation technology.]]
* BigBad: [[spoiler: While he has competition for the role, Darrow ultimately comes closest to realizing his plans.]]
* TheCobblersChildrenHaveNoShoes: Darrow is, more than anyone else, ''the'' driving mind behind mechanical augmentation, one of the great transhumanist philosophers and a multi-billionaire who could get anything in the world... but he also has a rare genetic condition which caused his body to violently reject all attempts at mechanical augmentation, leaving him on the sidelines to observe his vision of a bright new future rise and move on without him.
* CreatorBacklash: [[spoiler: In-Universe. See EvilIsPetty.]]
* EvilBrit: [[spoiler:Complete with a master plan involving massive projects and something akin to a superweapon.]]
* EvilIsPetty: [[spoiler: He's rather pissed and bitter his own invention can't do a thing for him, so he hijacks the Illuminati's plans and tweaks them so he can make sure the whole world gets to know just how much he's come to hate his own creation.]]
* {{Expy}}: Similar to [[VideoGame/MetalGear Patriots-era Major Zero]] in some ways.
* GeniusCripple: He's missing an arm, has a leg brace, and walks with a vaguely sci-fi-looking cane. It's visually distinctive, but becomes even more so once you realize how much it sticks out in a world where medical augmentations exist. [[spoiler: This becomes a plot point during his 'boss battle'.]]
* GreenEyedMonster: [[spoiler: He displays some jealousy over the fact that he has a genetic disorder that keeps him from using augments himself.]]
* HandicappedBadass: [[spoiler: When confronting him in the Panchaea tower, take note of his cane. It is covered in blood, implying that this crippled old man beat at least one of the insane augs to death with a stick.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler: Calling him on this is one of the ways to win the social battle with him, but only if you've destabilized him and called attention to his jealousy of augs.]]
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: [[spoiler: How he justifies his actions, naturally.]]
* KnightTemplar: [[spoiler: He's prepared to cause the deaths of millions to eliminate augmentation.]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler: Implied; he points directly to Hyron (which he helped create) as one of the reasons why augmentation is very, very ''bad''.]]
** [[spoiler: He will say this, minus the God part, if you play the conversation with him right at the end of the game.]]
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Arthur Holden does a ''very'' convincing British accent for the most part. However, a few of his vowel sounds during the last chat with Darrow sound a bit ''too'' North American.
* TheStarscream: [[spoiler: Darrow's Illuminati partners want to use augmentation as part of a worldwide AssimilationPlot using their new biochip to control the thoughts of everyone with an augmentation after the technology becomes universal. Darrow secretly opposes this plan, and his own scheme is to send a modified signal that turns every augmented person on the planet a murderous lunatic, in order to show the still-human population the dangers of augmentation in a way so widespread and massive that it cannot be covered up.]]
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: [[spoiler: Even Picus seems to like him, despite their obvious anti-augmentation bias. Turns out it's because he's in on TheConspiracy. The fact that his father founded Picus probably helps, too.]]
* WalkingSpoiler
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler: Based on his knowledge of the Illuminati's plans, Darrow sees his only two choices as either the mass murder of millions, or the eternal slavery of all humanity to the Illuminati. When confronting him it's possible for Adam to convince him humanity is capable of [[TakeAThirdOption Taking A Third Option]]]].

!!Mengyao

--> Voice: Vicky Wong

One of Darrow's representatives, involved in the Panchaea project.

!!Dr. Vera Marcovic

--> Voice: Leni Parker

She works at the L.I.M.B. clinic in Detroit. Unlike David Sarif, she believes that Adam should have more choice regarding the progress of his augmentations.

!!Zhao Yun Ru

--> Voice: Jane Luk

The CEO of Tai Yong Medical, a Chinese bio-tech company seeking to become the world leader in the augmentation market and a direct competitor to Sarif Industries. She warns Adam about "these men" who "control global interests on a whim," mysteriously neglecting her own involvement in said global interests.
----

* BigBadWannabe: [[spoiler:A rare instance where such a character actually ends up as the FinalBoss... although not because they're actually the power behind the throne.]]
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Her overall goal is to ruthlessly eliminate Tai Yong's competition and establish a monopoly on the augmentation market [[spoiler: in order to ensure the universal distribution of the Illuminati's new mind-controlling biochip. She is even willing to merge with Hyron to do this, lacking any other ambition.]]
* [[DistractedByTheSexy Distracted By The Feeling Up]]: She uses this technique on Adam.
* DragonLady: She is commonly referred to as the Dragon Queen, her dress is a combination of traditional Chinese wear and neo-Renaissance frills, [[spoiler: ''and'' she uses a bit of seduction on Adam.]]
* {{Expy}}: Of [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/DeusEx Maggie Chow]]]], despite having a different career.
* FinalBoss: [[spoiler:Technically, Hyron is, but she is the final part of it that needs to be defeated.]]
** EvilIsNotAToy: [[spoiler:At the end of the game, she merges with Hyron to try and assume direct control over the world's augmented population. As soon as she does, she finds out too late her biochip is incompatible with the system, and her attempts to force the technologies to interface backfires. Pretty literally, in fact: the uncontrolled energy burns her up from the inside out.]]
* FreudianExcuse: She was a champion gymnast when she was a child until the accident that led to her being augmented. She'll do anything to reclaim [[IcarusAllusion her moment in the sun]], when the spotlight was on her and no one else.
* LargeHam: Listen to her when she's trying to convince Jensen she's "not a bad girl."
* NotSoDifferent: When [[spoiler:attempting to merge with Hyron]] she says to Adam that neither of them would ever trust anyone else with the power they're grappling over - not the Illuminati, not their corporate allies, no one. And, well, she's right.
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:After she hooks herself up to Hyron, she becomes much less coherent and cool; her reasoning goes from "Someone has to save the world," to screaming about staying in control.]]
* SmugSnake: If the player [[spoiler:didn't take the upgrade]], her attempt to smugly incapacitate Adam will fall right on its face. There are also hints that she's not as useful to the conspiracy as she'd like to be and [[spoiler:her attempt to integrate with Hyron will end poorly for her, though she refuses to acknowledge it]].
* UnknownRival: She hates Sarif with passion for several obvious reasons, like being her most powerful and successful competitor and crafting the man [[spoiler: who would bring her down very hard]]. In return, Sarif makes near to no mention of Zhao. While it's a given he's not her ally, he doesn't seem to hate her personally the way she does him.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler: If you pay attention to her ranting in the final battle, she is pretty bent on making sure she can take control of the aug population to prove she can control Hyron even as it was trying to reject her, and even earlier she is hellbent on making sure she can dominate her competition. In both cases she or other people in the game blatantly tell you she hates losing and doesn't want to be a bit player at anything. It's also hinted her position in the Illuminati wasn't as important as she thought it was, so she wanted to make sure she always remained a critical part of it.]]

[[folder: Anti-Augs]]

!!Zeke Sanders/[[spoiler:Ezekiel Sandoval]]

--> Voice: Danny Blanco Hall

Leader of the Purity First militant organization, best-known for leading an attack on Sarif Industries at their Milwaukee Junction manufacturing plant. He has some unexpected familial connections that only become apparent much later.
----

* CyberneticsEatYourSoul: He certainly seems to believe this, becoming convinced that his [[ElectronicEyes cyber eye]] was driving him out of control when he had a PSTD episode after getting it implanted. He has since had it removed and becomes a literally militant anti-augmentation activist.
* EnemyMine: If you talk him into releasing the hostage and allow him to escape, he will give you the access codes for the FEMA camp in Highland Park in exchange later.
* EyepatchOfPower: To replace the [[ElectronicEyes cybereye]] he had removed.
* GratuitousSpanish: Uses a lot of Spanish slang in conversation, and frequently swaps out English terms for Spanish ones in emails to his men.
* IGaveMyWord[=/=]ExactWords: When he says that he considers his debt to Adam repaid, he means it. He will not hesitate to kill Adam during Purity First's next big operation. This can be cut short if you're ProperlyParanoid and kill him right then and there after he gives you the codes.
* ShellShockedVeteran: He was injured by an IED in Afghanistan, developing PTSD as a result, which probably contributed to his bad reaction to getting augmented.
* SuicideByCop: According to another character, the "crazy" thing his augmentations "made" him do was start shooting in a mall hoping to die. This was apparently a combination of the pain of Neuropozyne withdrawal triggering his PTSD. Obvious the attempt was unsuccessful, as Taggart supposedly talked him down. He became a serious anti-aug convert after that.
* UnwittingPawn: His operation was used as a cover by [[spoiler: the conspiracy]] to get their hacker into Sarif's manufacturing plant.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He and Purity First are far more militant in their desire to end augmentation than Humanity Front. [[spoiler: Of course, Humanity Front's leadership really wants to control augmentation technology rather than eliminate it outright]].

!!William Taggart

--> Voice: Bruce Dinsmore

The founder of Humanity Front and the leader of the anti-augmentation movement, claiming it is a dangerous technology with unclear means of regulation that the world is not ready for until it can be safely controlled. This turns out to be more or less his true motive. The real secret is where he thinks the control of augmentation and augmented individuals should lie...
----

* [[AmbiguouslyChristian Ambiguously Mormon]]: He runs a rehab clinic in Utah and alludes to his Latter-Day Saint upbringing in an email, and his view could ''possibly'' be framed in terms of Mormon beliefs, but it's not clear whether or not he's still observant.
* AncientConspiracy: [[spoiler:Cheerfully invoked. He observes that using the Illuminati name is a ''great'' way to get financiers to pony up.]]
* BrainwashingForTheGreaterGood: Possibly. He has a rehab center in Utah, where people are apparently 'convinced' to get rid of their augmentations.
* BreakTheHaughty: Winning the persuasion battle with him can result in this. Particularly sweet on account of the whole "in front of TV conference" aspect.
* TheFundamentalist: The Humanity Front's anti-augmentation policy seems to be largely based around not 'playing God' or 'upsetting the way human beings are meant to be'. As it turns out, this is just a technique to rally the lowest common denominator; Taggart's actual concern about aug research is that [[spoiler:it's accelerating too quickly for the Illuminati to consolidate control over it.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: Claims that enhancing the body's natural limitations with technology is wrong. He wears glasses. Like JC Denton before him, his vision is augmented.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: A peaceful variant. He's leading Humanity Front to restrict and weaken the augmentation movement but he does have understandable reasons for it. [[spoiler: ...Or so it seems at first. His wife's death is only half of it. The other seems to be furthering the power of the Illuminati.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:A variation in ''[[Literature/DeusExIcarusEffect Icarus Effect]]''; the Illuminati decide to have Taggart killed by one of their augmented assassins during an important UN event at Geneva, the idea being that he becomes a martyr and the Humanity Front gain momentum from it, leading the charge to regulate[=/=]ban augmentations. When the assassination fails, the Illuminati's plans continue without much alteration and Taggart remains loyal to them (probably because he knows defying them would not end well for him).]]

!!Isaias Sandoval

--> Voice: Matt Holland

A former surgeon and currently Taggart's right-hand man. He is opposed to augmentation because of the effects he observed on his patients in the past.
----

* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:Potentially after Taggart's big press conference. You can avert it if you say the right things. If you confront Sandoval ''without'' exposing his activities to Taggart, [[DevelopersForesight he'll just try to shoot Adam.]]]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler: Helps the Tyrants to circumvent the effects of the Sarif scientist's GPL trackers, unaware until it was too late that they were planning on launching a full-scale bloody attack on Sarif headquarters. He confesses to Adam that he "died that night."]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Criminals]]

!!Derelict Row Ballers

Detroit's largest street gang, they are rabidly anti-augmentation and control an area surrounding an abandoned textile plant in downtown Detroit.

* BoringButPractical: They shun augs and use only standard weapons, but have a large number of members, no dependency on an expensive drug, and have support from anti-augs (who are implied to be the majority of people in this universe).
* FantasticRacism: Against augmented individuals.

!!Motor City Bangers

Detroit's second-largest street gang. Not as large as the DRB, but they make up for it by embracing augmentations to make each individual member more formidable.

* AffablyEvil: So long as you don't raise a gun in their faces, they're pretty friendly to Jensen. Hell, you even come across one guy who gives you intel on the FEMA compound and offers upgrades and ammo for a cheap price.
* AwesomeButImpractical: Their augs give them an edge in combat but they depend on an expensive drug to maintain their wellbeing, have fewer members due to widespread augmentation discrimination and as a sidequest notes, are much easier to identify due to their flashy augment implants.
* BlingBlingBang: They sure like gold-plated cyberlimbs.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Though it feels like a parody more than anything:
-->'''MCB Gang Leader''': Rest in peace, Big Rizzle.
-->'''Adam Jensen''': ''(bored)'' Yeah. RIP.

!!Harvesters

This vicious triad from Hengsha is so-named because they attack augmented people in order to steal their implants, which they then sell on the black market or install in themselves.

* AffablyEvil: Several members will compliment Adam on his augmentations very politely and warn him against walking the streets in Hengsha alone - it's very dangerous, especially for someone like him. It can be really hard to tell where genuine compliment ends and where ImpliedDeathThreat begins with these guys.
* BodyHorror: They ''rip the cybernetic parts out of you'', leaving you crippled on the ground, and sell the augs or use them themselves.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Several members have really deep voices, going hand in hand with the trope below.
* ScaryBlackMan: Their membership contains a high quantity of black men with American accents and deep voices, despite the fact that they are a gang based in a Chinese city.
** Could be considered TruthInTelevision; many Asian crime syndicates will employ expat foreigners in low-level positions because institutional racism often prevents them from finding legitimate work. It's also possible that Hengsha, like Dubai in real life, was constructed largely by immigrant laborers, which would provide a large pool of expat foreigners for the Harvesters to draw from.
* TheSingularity: Some of them seem to idealise augmentations and hold TheSingularity as their end goal. The compliments these guys give Adam come off a lot more genuine than the [[ImpliedDeathThreat Implied Death Threats]] coming from the rest.
* SinisterShades: They seem rather fond of these. (Like Jensen, they are probably augmented to help them better find potential targets.)

!!Tong Si Hung

--> Voice: Dennis Akiyama

The owner of the popular Hengsha nightclub, The Hive, as well as the biggest crime lord in the city's underworld. Later revealed to be the father of Tracer Tong from the original game.

* TheBartender: His initial disguise.
* DeadpanSnarker
-->'''Jensen''': Tong! How did you get this frequency?
-->'''Tong''': Ancient Chinese secret.
* EnemyMine: Agrees to help Jensen solely because he thinks he'll cause a lot more trouble for Belltower. [[spoiler:Though helping his son make a getaway by using Jensen as a distraction was probably the true reason he was so willing to assist him.]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has some rather nasty burn scars on his neck and chest.
* KarmaHoudini: One of the very few major characters in the game that cannot be hurt or killed, and his plot importance means that Adam has no choice but to leave him to his criminal activities, including his ties to human trafficking. [[note]] The only consolation is that when you experience the glitch while leaving his office for the final time, Tong is unaffected while his Harvesters (and Adam, if not upgraded) recoil in pain. This logically means that Tong became just another of the screaming madmen after Darrow launched his signal.[[/note]]
* KingIncognito: Adam perceives him as this, but he insults Adam for not figuring it out during their first conversation. Adam can actually spot him as such if he has the social aug.
* PapaWolf: Don't mess with his son. [[spoiler: He'll sic ''Jensen'' on you.]]
* OffscreenTeleportation: Tong seems to be capable of this. [[spoiler: After talking to him when he is disguised as a barkeeper he sends you to his office to meet him]]. Even when you use the most direct path to get there, he always manages to be waiting for you.
* RedRightHand: It's never explained where his horrible facial scarring came from, but it's a good bet it has something to do with why he also has a cyberarm.
* ThirdPersonPerson: When talking to Adam at the bar, though he switches once his identity is revealed.
* TheTriadsAndTheTongs: He leads Hengsha's local triad gang, the Harvesters.

!!Bobby Bao

--> Voice: Russell Yuen

The main bartender of the Hive, who also helps to run the shadier side of Tong's business.

* TheBartender: A rather corrupt version.
* LoanShark: Bao runs a scam for the Harvesters, offering to give people augmentations for no money up front, then shaking them down for monthly payments afterwards.

!!Arie Van Bruggen

--> Voice: Alex Ivanovici

The hacker who was puppeting the infiltrator during the second attack on Sarif Industries, he uses the screen-name "Windmill" and is also called the "Dutchman" even though his accent is more Caribbean. [[note]]Of course, there are the islands of Curacao, Bonaire, and Aruba, all part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. And that's not even counting the possibility that he could hail from Suriname.[[/note]]

* BiTheWay: Possibly. His greeting for Adam is, "Sorry, man, you're not my type," there's an interesting e-mail sent to the landlord of Alice Garden Pods, and if you look at all the sticky notes plastered around the computer in his apartment, you'll find several with phone numbers and girls' names written on them, and one sticky note reminding him to buy more [[BreadEggsMilkSquick broccoli and lube]].
--->'''HIVE-MASTER@THEHIVE.HI.PRC:'''[[note]]To: guestssupport@alicegardenpods.hi.prc[[/note]] make sure 301 gets whatever the fuck he wants. boys, girls, internet access, sodan noodles, or the fucking moon.
* DuelingHackers: [=Nucl3arsnake=]/Frank Pritchard vs Windmill/Arie van Bruggen, though it seems that Frank is the better of the two. From the frustration that Windmill expresses in his e-mails, Frank was doing ''just fine'' keeping him at bay; it wasn't until Windmill discovered [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Sarif's backdoor access]] that he was able to get into Sarif Industries' system. In other words, Van Bruggen needed the computer security equivalent of the bank's owner leaving his vault and front door completely open and unlocked to get past Pritchard.
* HeKnowsTooMuch: One of the reasons Belltower comes after him. He took steps about this as well, squirreling away evidence and little "surprises" in the TYM mainframe. He just didn't anticipate ''having to go back for it.''
* MisplacedAccent: Detailed above.
* PlayfulHacker: "I am looking at your bank account, and... you know, Sarif really ought to pay you more..."
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: His accent isn't Dutch, it's Caribbean which would make him from the Dutch Antilles or Suriname.

[[folder: Other]]

!!Brent Radford

--> Voice: Al Goulem

An aged private investigator who used to be a detective. He was hired by David Sarif to do a background check on Adam Jensen. Unfortunately, his investigation attracted some very pointed attention.

* DyingAsYourself: He'd rather [[spoiler:die than become augmented]], because he believes that augs have lost their humanity. [[spoiler:You can talk him out of it, assuming you have the CASIE upgrade and you hit the right dialogue choices]].
* FantasticRacism: Uses the harshest anti-Aug slurs heard in the game, calling Adam a 'robot' and telling Adam that he's not even human. He asks Adam what it was like to die, and whether Adam even has a soul, or if that was taken out of him when he was "built". He also refers to Adam's augmented body as a "metal corpse". ''Damn''.
* GuideDangIt: You can [[spoiler:save him]], but you need the CASIE upgrade to do it.
* ICannotSelfTerminate: He asks Adam to give him [[spoiler:a lethal overdose of morphine to [[MercyKill end his suffering]]]]. Adam can choose whether or not to oblige him.
* {{Jerkass}}: To augmented people. Just ''look'' at what he says to Adam, even though Adam [[spoiler:just took out the man who shot him, is perfectly civil to him, and, depending on player choices, ''trying to save his life'']].
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's more concerned about [[spoiler:Michelle's]] welfare than his own, despite the fact that he's never met her; all he knows is that she's kind and that Adam owes her his life. Radford insists that Adam get to her before Adam's enemies do, and implores him to save her.
* PetTheDog: For all that he considers Adam to be inhuman, he still [[spoiler:gives up all the information he can even as he's dying]]. Depending on the dialogue chosen, he may decide that Adam's "got a lot of heart, [[YouAreACreditToYourRace for a robot]]".
* YouAreACreditToYourRace: Will tell Jensen that he has "a lot of heart for a robot," with the right dialogue choices.

!!Cassandra Reed

--> Voice: Susan Glover

Megan's mother, and dissatisfied with the investigation into her death.

* [[GoodParents Good Mother]]: If you check Megan's computer at the beginning of the game, there's an e-mail message from Cassandra expressing her concern and asking Megan to call her more often.
* HotScientist: She has her daughter's features, and has aged very gracefully.
* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Mother, Like Daughter]]: The same e-mail mentioned above also reveals that Cassandra is scientist, and she often buries herself in her work. She even uses the phrase verbatim.

!!Lee Hong

--> Voice: Zen Shane Lim

The ex-boyfriend of one of Malik's deceased friends. [[spoiler: He was the one who killed her, and Malik wants Adam's help proving it.]]

* AccidentalMurder: [[spoiler:It was an accident! All he did was bash her head in with a heavy antique clock! How was he supposed to know that could be fatal?]]
* ClusterFBomb: Not that he was particularly reserved beforehand, but hit all the right answers [[spoiler:while accusing him of Evelyn's murder]], and he will carpet bomb the area.
* [[IDidntMeanToKillHim I Didn't Mean To Kill Her]]: [[spoiler:He just wanted her to "shut her stupid mouth".]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: [[spoiler: He unintentionally murdered a woman who was pregnant with his child, and all that he was really concerned about afterwards was how it could potentially ruin his life.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Malik sadly speculates that her friend wanted to help him with his attitude and fell prey to it instead.
* ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish: His door code is pathetically easy to guess, presumably because anything more complicated would be too hard for him to remember.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney[=/=]ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: His family is stated to be among the wealthiest and most influential people in Shanghai. [[spoiler: It's through his family's connections to [[PrivateMilitaryContractors Belltower]] and [=LIMB=] that they were able to conceal the truth behind his girlfriend's death. Goodness knows he couldn't have done it on his own.]]
* SympatheticMurderer: [[spoiler:Tries to present himself this way. Fails miserably. Calling the pregnant girlfriend he killed a "dumb bitch" probably didn't help.]]
* WhatAnIdiot: In-universe. Faridah outright states that he's not the sharpest knife in the drawer. [[spoiler:For instance, he leaves the murder weapon just sort of lying around his apartment where anyone could break in and find it. Which is exactly what Adam does]]. Also, his door code? 1234.

!!Eliza Cassan

[[quoteright:360:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eliza_9589.PNG]]
-->''"This is Eliza Cassan, reporting to you live, from Picus."''
--> Voice: Kim Bubbs

The global celebrity Picus TV Network newsreader, who tirelessly reads news at seemingly all times. She makes appearances as a holographic presence when unable to appear in person. Eventually Adam meets her and discovers "in person" is a relative term...

* BenevolentAI: [[spoiler:She starts to develop a sense of morality as a result of watching Adam. However, unlike, say, Daedalus, she's incapable of significant decisions outside her given tasks and can't properly "rebel" aside from sharing a little information with Adam]].
* CreepyMonotone: [[spoiler:She's ''trying'' to help, but her commentary during the battle with Fedorova can have this effect]].
-->[[spoiler:'''Eliza''': She's coming, Adam. Run.]]
* EmotionlessGirl: Played with. [[spoiler:She shows emotion in her newscasts, but it's "fabricated", as she is programmed to express whatever view (and accompanying emotion) that Picus instructs her to. She begins to subvert this the more she watches Adam, and becomes fond of him, expressing affection when he meets her and helping him as much as her programming allows]].
* EveryGirlIsCuterWithHairDecs: A bit hard to spot, but she has black beads in her hair.
* {{Expy}}: Shares some traits with [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/DeusExInvisibleWar NG resonance]] and [[VideoGame/DeusEx Daedalus AI]].]]
* GothicLolita: Her outfit resembles a cross between this and the neo-Renaissance look all the rage in this period.
* GreekChorus[=/=][[MrExposition Ms Exposition]]: Nearly every level has a couple televisions switched to Picus, where Eliza comments on the events of the plot, provides details on what's happening with the people Jensen meets, and occasionally provides some foreshadowing.
* GreenEyes: Very striking when coupled with her pink and purple outfits. [[spoiler:Especially since pink and purple were colors deliberately excluded from the game's stylistic palette by the devs. It's just one more hint that she's illusory - she wears colors that do not 'exist' in ''Human Revolution'' because she herself doesn't 'exist'.]]
* HardLight: [[spoiler:''Maybe''. Her projected hologram certainly seems to be touching Adam, with her fingers shaping perfectly to where she places them just as a solid person's would, even when he moves. It could simply be a very, very ''sophisticated'' projection, but there's no way to be certain]].
* KentBrockmanNews: Played with. Picus doesn't necessarily report false information all the time, but its reporters are instructed to editorialize from a ''very'' anti-aug standpoint, which makes them seem like this. [[spoiler: Given that Eliza is a computer, it's not really her fault, either.]]
* [[RobotGirl Holographic Girl]]: [[spoiler:She shows physical affection for Adam and uses a different tone of voice with him.]]
* ItHasBeenAnHonor: [[spoiler: To Adam, should he choose the KillEmAll ending.]]
* MeaningfulName: [[spoiler:She is named after a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ELIZA computer program that was designed to handle natural language and chat with humans]]. A program that, despite its initial version using a fairly simplistic pattern matching algorithm to repeat what you say to it in the form of a question, managed to fool a bunch of people into having long conversations with it. Between this and Picus' MeaningfulName, it could be an allusion to Picus ViewersAreMorons. The ELIZA program was itself named after [[Theatre/{{Pygmalion}} Eliza Doolittle]], who shares several traits with our Miss Cassan.]]
* MysteriousWoman: Beautiful, intelligent, stylish, famous... and [[{{Foreshadowing}} no one seems to know anything about her personal life]].
* [[ProjectedMan Projected Woman]]
* RoboSpeak: [[spoiler:When she's not on the air, she tends to drop her contractions and most of her tonality.]]

!! Lady Katrina Sutherland

-->''"I'm game if you are, but equally, it might be nice to take a little break from murder and mayhem and maybe stop off somewhere for cocktails."''

A heavily-augmented freelance mercenary from the six-issue comic run.


* ActionGirl: With a hint of DarkActionGirl.ArtificialLimbs
* BadassTransplant: She's probably about as augmented as Adam.
* BlueBlood: That's ''Lady'' Katrina Sutherland, thank you.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DistressedDamsel: [[spoiler:{{Chickification}} strikes again.]]
* EmergencyTransformation: She was augmented after being thrown from her horse and then trampled.
* {{Expy}}: She's a tall, beautiful, snarky, gun-wielding, upper-class, badass British woman of adventure.
-->'''Malik:''' What the hell, Jensen? You went in there looking for some uber-geek computer-genius like Pritchard and came out with [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft]]?
* FemmeFatale: She looks like she's going to be this, but it's averted.
* HeroicSacrifice
* LadyOfWar
* NakedFirstImpression: Adam bursts in on her shower. All things considered, she takes it well.
* StuffedIntoTheFridge: [[spoiler:Played ''alarmingly'' straight.]]
* [[WeCanRebuildHim We Can Rebuild Her]]: What MI-5 promised her if she agreed to work for them. She accepted.

!!Lazarus

--> Voice: Harry Standjofski

This abrasive, foul-mouthed commentator tirelessly talks on his radio show at all times. He comments on practically everything, but mainly focuses on conspiracy theories and the politics surrounding augmentation. He starts out as fiercely anti-aug, but switches sides when he finds out who's controlling the opposition movement.

* CassandraTruth: Completing the game reveals that he had a lot of good points.
* CoincidentalBroadcast: For example, while Adam is in Hengsha, this guy just happens to be talking about Hengsha.
* LargeHam
* MeaningfulName: This is a series with important named people like ''J.C, Paul'', and ''Adam''. He's named ''Lazarus''.
** He mentions in one broadcast that he had to fake his death to escape the Illuminati in 2015 and went dark for a couple years before he started broadcasting again. It's likely his name is self-chosen because of this.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: His character sounds like and is inspired by Radio/AlexJones.

!!Letitia

--> Voice: Amanda Strawn

One of Adam's street informants back when he was a cop, this woman sifts through trash in order to find food. Her favorite drink is Maharaja Hot Devil beer.

* JiveTurkey: Which caused some backlash towards Eidos Montreal initially, as her characterization was seen as racist. Commentary on the Director's Cut suggests this controversy took them completely off guard and was simply how the actress chose to voice the character.
* TheNicknamer: She always refers to Adam as "The Captain" or some variation thereof.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: She acts like a stereotypical JiveTurkey when you first meet her, but she tones it down after her introductory lines and knows a ''lot'' about the Detroit underworld and even specifics about augmentations. There's clearly a reason Jensen kept in contact with her.
* SassyBlackWoman
* StreetSmart

!!Michelle Walthers

--> Voice: Amanda Strawn

A former nurse at the White Helix Labs, she saved [[spoiler: Adam's]] life when he was a baby when a fire destroyed the lab where he was raised at.

* ScatterbrainedSenior: She mistakes Adam for a delivery driver, and thinks that Adam is still only a child. After the quest involving her is completed, if the player tries to ask her for more information, she will continue to forget the conversation.
* [[HeKnowsTooMuch She Knows Too Much]]: Subverted, while her memory is fading and is probably not a threat to anyone, Adam suspects that the Illuminati could come after her next, asking Pritchard to order a security detail to her apartment until he can find out a better solution.
