* IOweYouMyLife: Henri's father was the one who got him out of the military cage he was imprisoned in. This saved him from being used as a weapon as was intended to be, and allowed him to work on his moral code.

* SpannerintheWorks: Referred to as such by Maxwell, who takes measures during arrangements for robot rights, [[DefiedTrope to make sure Sam doesn't go make a mess of the efforts to get robots rights.]]

* HypercompetentSidekick: To Blunt. Not that Blunt's a complete idiot, but he does try to make arrangements for several laws (intended to protect humans from robots) that Edge quickly shoots down because they could be used against them. Blunt admits he didn't consider that possibility.
--> '''Edge:''' Boss, that's why we need self centered people like me in this organization. To keep us safe from idealists like you.

** Ironically, he himself notes that [[HumansAreCthulhu humans are equally eldritch in his eyes]] by virtue of their technological superiority; [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2800/fc02753.htm humans can do things that his planet would consider the stuff of divine myths]], all through the power of science. Familiarity, though, breeds indifference.

* HiddenDepths: Once he's saved the robots, his ultimate plan for the fact he is now, by robot tradition, owed billions of hours of assistance? [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2800/fc02779.htm It's to ask for their help in claiming and colonizing a planet. But not for himself.]] Rather, he wants their help in setting up a new planet his species could inhabit, and getting the sqids to understand that its there, in order to push them into trying to close the technological gap between themselves and humans so they don't ultimately end up stagnating into extinction on their home planet.

* EldritchAbomination: Qwerty describes him as "The tentacled horror from beyond my stars", rather annoying him. Later, it's revealed that he has chromatophores that make him look like he exists in more than the three standard dimensions with with humans are familiar.

* {{Greed}}: Combined with utter idiocy. After being presented plan [[spoiler:to kill nearly half a billion sentients so his company can absorb their cash and ''he'', personally, can seize control of seven per cent of Jean's wealth, his first question is if he can't get control of the other [[ArtisticLicenseEconomics ninety-three per cent]] ]].

* CorruptCorporateExecutive: From what little we've heard from him, he expressed concern over how to continue running the entire planet if the mayor isn't indebted to him in some way. It's fairly clear if he's not fully in-control, then he isn't happy. And of course, his main motivation for going along with making robots citizens as well is how much money they'll make for him (as opposed to the moral decision of recognizing them as people).

Mind, as corrupt as he might be, this goes hand in hand with ReasonableAuthorityFigure, as opposed to the his uncle's destructive stupidity.
