* BiTheWay: Possibly. His interest in females is clear-cut: before the massacre of his sector he was happily married to a woman and had a child with her, and during his tenure with the Five Inversions he had relations with [[DarkChick Roixeaume]] -- albeit he was only using her in order to obtain the gift of blood prophecy. Furthermore it was later hinted that he harbored a crush on Mera. On the homosexual side of things, there ''was'' that one time when Atrocitus tenderly confessed to Krona's corpse that he felt that the two of them are lovers married for all time through the rage that Atrocitus feels for him. One can argue that Atrocitus was being entirely metaphorical, but nonetheless that was quite an...interesting...way to put it.

Billions of years ago, the Manhunters malfunctioned and eliminated all life in Sector 666--or so they thought. Five denizens of the sector survived the massacre, and together, formed a terrorist cabal known as the Five Inversions. Over time, they founded TheEmpire of Tears, which was as much fun as its name implies. Eventually the empire fell, and the Five Inversions were crucified on their throne-world. They're the ones who led to Abin Sur crashing on Earth, and seeded the prophecy of the Blackest Night. However, things didn't go as planned; their leader Atrocitus, in his rage, beat the others to death, and used their blood to form the Red Central Power Battery with his BloodMagic and create his own Corps.

The leader and only survivor of the Five Inversions (the others died by his hand). The demonic Atrocitus was directly responsible for the death of Abin Sur and, later, Sinestro's turn to evil. His rage is the rage that fuels the entire Red Lantern Corps, for he forged the Red Central Power Battery by his own hand. There is a reason for his anger, however: the murder of his beloved by the Manhunters in the Massacre of Sector [[NumberOfTheBeast 666]].

* RedemptionFailure: Doesn't go very far at all. Like he had done to Bleez, Simon attempts to purge Atrocitus of his rage and restore him to the person he originally was. Simon only manages to piss Atrocitus off even more.



* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Is said to be the most sadistic and vicious of the Red Lanterns, however, he did genuinely love his previous owner.

[[spoiler: When most of the Red Corps was (very temporarily) killed by Lobo Dex-Starr was the only slain member whom Atrocitus mourned and swore to avenge -- all the rest of Lobo's Red Lantern victims were casually brushed off by Atrocitus, who called them "weak" and thus "deserving of death."]]

* CharacterDevelopment: He is the most devout of the Reds and is very loyal to Atrocitus. When Guy Gardner defeats Atrocitus and becomes leader, he starts to resent the Corps, but doesn't leave with Dexx-Star. He finds the new direction Guy is taking them a disgrace to the Red Lantern ways. He is so ashamed, that he actually [[spoiler:starts to lose his rage and his ring wants to leave him]].

Once a hardened criminal, Skallox was betrayed by his employer and cast into an oven to be burned alive. His rage burning like a fire, a Red ring smashes through the oven and the rest is history.

* AntiVillain: They default to this, as despite their antagonism towards the Green Lanterns they usually have VERY good reasons to be pissed off (Red rings are usually drawn to rage resulting from personal loss).

* AwesomeButImpractical: The idea of a Lantern Corps made of mindless and blood crazed berserkers. The initial Reds are incapable of any organization or strategy above a pack mentality, have little self preservation, and can't even form energy constructs. Atrocitus eventually realizes this and decides to grant intelligence to a select few. After Blizz and later Guy Gardner take control they give everyone their minds back. Even then its takes some time for them to all gain the ability to form constructs.

* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Guy Gardner's tenure as a Red Lantern ultimately resulted in the few remaining members of the Corps making peace with the Green Lanterns and being appointed as the official guardians of Sector 2814 (which includes Earth). But when Atrocitus came back into power it didn't take him very long to undo all of Guy's achievements for the Red Lanterns and completely purge Guy's lingering influence from the Corps. How Atrocitus managed any of this is unknown (the last time we saw him before his sudden resurgence he had been left powerless and on the brink of death, and the surviving Red Lanterns had developed a fierce loyalty to Guy), so it was probably just a straight-up {{retcon}}.

* InItForLife: To avoid people leaving his Lantern Corp Atrocitus designed the Red Rings so that taking them off would be fatal. Only the healing power of a Blue Lantern can prevent this.

-->'''Atrocitus:''' Do you hate? The most powerful hate is not born out of ignorance or prejudice or a perceived threat. Those three are fear in disguise. The fury that fuels my corps ignites from personal pain. Those whose lives were ravaged by greed, lust and control wield the crimson light. The rings replaced our damaged hearts. They beat for them. And they keep us alive only to hate. But at least we live.

* DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife: With Krona dead, Atrocitus' rage no longer has a target...but it's still there.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: He was outrageously badass billions of years before he created the Red Power Battery, enough to kill hordes of Manhunters with his bare hands, and torture and kill Guardians of the Universe.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Used to just be another guy, with a wife and family. Then the Manhunters came and levelled his planet.

* ItsAllAboutMe: When Atrocitus took her back to Havania after restoring her intelligence she reveals that she blames her mother for putting her in the path of the Sinestros in the first place, which also means that the red ring wasn't drawn to her because of what the Sinestros did to her family, it was because of what they did to her.

** The writers themselves seem to be ignoring this more and more. Every single time they need a character to stop being a Red Lantern, they lose the ring offscreen with no side effects or explanation. Originally only the blue light of hope could do this.


Added DiffLines:

** The writers themselves conveniently ignore this when they need to pull a ring from a character. Every single time they need a character to stop being a Red Lantern, they lose the ring offscreen with no side effects or explanation, especially given that DeusExitMachina is pretty much nearly always in effect for the Blue Lantern Corps.
