* HeroWithBadPublicity: Takes a lot of flak for ordering the Hammer of Dawn used to scorch the surface of Sera to stem the tide of the Locust onslaught, but as horrific as that decision was, it did give humanity a chance and ultimately allowed them to triumph. Later he abandons the COG and nobody believes him when he says he has a good reason for doing so. Then it turns out, he did.

* ObstructiveBureaucrat: One example that sticks out is hiding the fact [[spoiler: the COG knows where the Locust come from, even from Hoffman.]]

* BlueBlood

to:

* BlueBloodBlueBlood: He came from a prestigious political dynasty and his father was even a Chairman of the COG during The Pendulum Wars.



** He has a lot of PetTheDog moments, like expressing deep remorse that so many people had to die in the Hammer of Dawn counter-attack against the Locust that he ordered, which is something he views as borderline unforgivable. He even warns his secretary in a subtle manner to make sure she gets her family to Jacinto Plateau before he makes the announcement, and when she does that, he sadly muses that at lease ''one'' person [[TheChainsOfCommanding won't hate him for what he's about to do.]] There's also the implicit fact that [[spoiler: he didn't fake his death to go to Azura with the other surviving members of the COG's government and military, opting to stay behind and lead the fight with Hoffman. He ultimately dies telling Marcus his father is alive and gives him some crucial info, proving that his heart was always in the best interest of the surviving humans.]]

* PermanentElectedOfficial: There are no more elections after Emergence Day.

Added DiffLines:

* YouAreInCommandNow: Went from Deputy Chairman to Chairman after Tomas Dalyell had a fatal heart attack about a year after E-Day.

* BaldOfAwesome

to:

* BaldOfAwesomeBaldOfAwesome: Though in ''Gears 4'' he has grown his hair back in his retirement.



* BrutalHonesty: Despises liars in general, possibly due to his faking a surrender at Anvil Gate(a lie). When he tells you something, it's the truth as far as he knows it. This is one reason why Prescott keeps him in the dark for so long, because he knows Hoffman wouldn't react well to the truth and also wouldn't hesitate to tell anyone. Lampshaded by Trescu, who tells one of his men that Hoffman knows the truth's "power to shock".

* BattleCouple: With Bernie. It's revealed in ''Anvil Gate'' that they were also a couple when they were younger, but he broke up with her under pressure from his superiors when he started officer training.

Added DiffLines:

** It's subtly showcased in Gears 2 when [[spoiler: Delta investigates New Hope Research Facility.]] Hoffman goes through the typical "chains of command" need-to-know boilerplate language...only to confide with Marcus that even ''he'' doesn't know what's going on, and he won't pretend otherwise.


Added DiffLines:

** He's also not proud of his actions during the Siege of Anvil Gate.
