Added DiffLines:

* TemptingFate: If you express disapproval at his actions in Nipton he dares you to attack him and his allies with the implication that he doesn't even consider you a threat, and assuming they weren't sold or ignored most players at this point will have a rather healthy supply of dynamite from the Powder Gangers. Do the math.

* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking: Averted. Despite being the leader of Caesar's elite Frumentarii, Vulpes is fairly weak compared to other high-ranking Legion [=NPCs=].

* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking: Averted. Despite being the leader of Caesar's elite Frumentarii, Vulpes is fairly weak compared to other high-ranking Legion [=NPCs=]. He is more brain than brawn.



* PragmaticVillainy: His actions are horrible but they have goals bigger than petty raids, he is diminishing the NCR's morale and troops by attacking important trade post.



* StupidEvil: If he takes over the Legion and wins, he takes a number of steps that demonstrate what an EvilOverlord he is, but are strategically ''really'' stupid. Just to name one example. Unlike Caesar, he will try to hunt down the Enclave Remnants if they help the Legion. Keep in mind that the Enclave was the scourge of the wasteland over thirty years ago and the remnants hadn't lost their vibe. Needless to say, Lanius [[EpicFail fails immensely]]. We expected better from you, buddy.

We expected better from you, buddy. Justified as that it's not that Lanius is stupid but he is a fanatic of the MightMakesRight mentality. It is his belief that by his mayhem the world get stronger.

* NervesOfSteel: Iron-willed at even the worst of times. Even when hit by Terrifying Presence, he manages to keep most of his composure, only yelling that "we have a problem!"

* MightMakesRight: Subtly invokes this in Nipton. If you have a problem with his actions, you're more than welcome to try to kill him and his men.

* BlondeGuysAreEvil: Although the in-game version has brown hair, the depiction of him on the Collector's Edition card deck shows him with very light blond hair.

* WeHaveReserves: In the Camp Searchlight fire station, you find two recruit legionaries dead of radiation poisoning next to barrels of radioactive waste that were used to contaminate the town. Their bodies contain orders from Vulpes, instructing them to open as many barrels as they can and report back to him.

* BadassArmy: Every Legionary, from the Legate on down, is either an experienced combatant or dead. The rank-and-file might not be terribly creative or well-armed, but even Colonel Moore admits they are in fantastic shape and fanatically loyal, charging machine gun nests with little more than a sharp stick if their commander orders it. [[spoiler:Caesar is an exception; he relies on his brains to get around his lack of brawn.]]

* DramaticallyMissingThePoint: The army of pillaging Roman cosplayers led by a history nerd turned continental super conqueror can't (or won't) can't bring themselves to use technology, form stable alliances, or position themselves as a lesser threat than their enemies to independent or minor factions. In short, [[GeniusBonus they act less like Rome than the NCR does.]]

* EvilPowerVacuum: House speculates that this will be the fate of the Legion once Caesar is out of the picture. With no strong charismatic figure to unite under, the Legion will fall to infighting and destroy itself within a year. Unfortunately, this also means that the territories of the Legion will fall back into anarchy. [[spoiler: Sadly {{subverted}} should the Courier take it upon himself to put one in Caesar's head early on: his subordinates pick up the reigns rather seamlessly.]]

** Caesar teaches that the weak are unworthy of living and deserve to perish, and has outlawed all chems and technology including stimpacks because they contribute to making humanity weak and frail for relying on them. The second you get into his tent you'll see his bodyguards are armed with advanced power fists, he has an Auto Doc in his bedroom, and oh yes, [[spoiler:he has a fatal brain tumor and sees no problem in using modern medicine to save his own skin.]]

** This even extends to ex-members, such as Joshua Graham and Ulysses. Joshua claims he doesn't enjoy killing, but his actions when fighting the White Legs speaks for itself.

But he intentionally trained the White Legs to destroy New Canaan, Joshua's home on Caesar's behalf.]]

** [[http://www.formspring.me/JESawyer/q/252998024811254129 Sawyer stated he wanted this to be justified by Caesar as women are the only ones capable of giving birth and he wants them to create as many soldiers as possible]] (which makes sense considering the Legion's a constantly-fighting entity). This was not properly communicated during development, but it basically doesn't matter: that just means their grand plan is to value women strictly for their biology, which is still ''immensely'' sexist. Caesar, however, puts a good deal of importance to Legion women in his statements, as they are what "keeps the Legion going".

* DefectorFromDecadence: One of Caesar's motivations, evidenced by all his talk of "profligates" and "degenerates". [[spoiler:Caesar was originally an NCR citizen and a member of the Followers Of Apocalypse. He left the two groups because he disagreed with them ideologically.]]
* DickDastardlyStopsToCheat: If the Courier tries to have Benny released he'll blackmail you into killing him by threatening Benny with crucifixion. Because coercing someone who was likely your regime’s mortal enemy 24 hours ago into committing murder for your jollies is sure to win their loyalty and respect.

* DudeWheresMyRespect: He's almost universally condescending and smug towards you. Even if you do all he asks and have an Idolized reputation with the Legion, he's liable to refuse to answer your questions and will tell you that the reason you should do as he orders is because he ordered you to do it.

** [[spoiler:Saving him from his tumor will cause him to be extremely grateful and nigh-friendly to the Courier, which he lampshades by suggesting they "stop this mushy stuff".]]
