* UltimateAuthorityMayor: She is the only government authority figure that has been seen and the only JuristictionFriction she's ever suffered was with Mr. Ishiguro, the CFO of Ecosystems Unlimited(although the planet Jean has had a governor mentioned). Justified; according to [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2200/fc02146.htm this strip]] there are only about 20,000 adult and presumably human colonists on the planet at the moment. No American state capitol has a population of under a hundred thousand; 20,000 is the population of your average ''small town.''

* UltimateAuthorityMayor: She is the only government authority figure that has been seen and hasn't been shown to have to answer to a city council or higher authority for her actions, although there was once mention of a governor of the planet Jean. (Of course, according to [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2200/fc02146.htm this strip]] there are only about 20,000 adult and presumably human colonists on the planet at the moment -- about enough to populate a single not-too-large city by Earth standards.)

* AmoralAttorney: As a ''government'' lawyer, he feels his job would be far easier if he didn't have to deal with private lawyers continously trying to skirt the letter of the law to circumvent its spirit.

* ItsAllAboutMe: A bit. Particularly, after the Gardener in the Dark debacle, he's miffed to realize he's seen (not inaccurately) as Florence's sidekick, and starts a plan to be seen as TheHero. He also resents that the Mayor left for her rediscovering journey without the courtesy of arranging his asssassination.

to:

* YouAreInCommandNow: The Mayor leaves him in charge when she leaves on vacation, trusting his good judgment and experience. He's just nervous he can't be quite "enough of an uncompromising pig-headed jerk", in the Mayor's words.

* {{Cincinnatus}}: After Mr. Kornada's trial ends, she prepares to go on a vacation and transfer her authority to someone else, feeling the situation had changed too much for her to quickly adapt (she still has problems seeing robots as people, which is a serious issue with someone supposed to represent them). Acknowledging this led her to conclude she was no longer able to ably lead Jean.

** She considers it her duty as a politician to examine new information and change her position if necessary. When confronted with evidence that AIs are sapient, she begins negotiating with [[ZombieAdvocate Robot Advocate]] Max Post despite hating him, and [[spoiler:eventually puts her career on the line by defending the robots against having their assets seized by the company that created them]].
** She also is cited by Blunt as being the only judge who would be anything even close to impartial for Mr. Kornada. All other judges, aware of what Kornada had attempted, exhibited HangingJudge attitudes towards him.
