* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Trina clealry has a crush on Sam, not that he returns these feelings.



* GenreSavvy: He and Brigitte almost immediately put together what is going on shortly after the beasts death, and the first thing they do is throw "hollywood rules" out the window.



%%* AllMenArePerverts

to:

%%* AllMenArePerverts* AllMenArePerverts: It's blatantly obvious from the word go that his intent to date Ginger ammounts to scoring with her.



* EveryoneHasStandards: Thinks what he's going through is fucked up, especially when he doesn't know what's happening to him. Particularly when he kills his own dog.
* EvilIsHammy: Not so much evil as it is "{{Jerkass}} DrunkOnTheDarkside" but he really starts to ham it up towards the full moon, particlally when Brigitte injects him.



* CrazyJealousGirl: Has this attitude towards Brigitte when she thinks she and Sam are a thing.



%%* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk



%%* KarmicDeath




to:

* BecauseDestinySaysSo: A firm believer in the Red and the Black prophecy, of which one sister will kill the other. That is his primary motivation for protecting the sisters (primarily Brigtte).



* BigGood: The closest the film has to this as leader of Fort Bailey, who offers protection to the Fitzgerald sisters. Not that he makes the right decisions throughout the film.
* DespairEventHorizon: Goes through this over the movie. Being forced to kill his son is implied to be the reason he commits suicde at the end.



* JerkAss: less so than the Reverend or Sergeant James, but on balance he probably falls into this trope

* DisproportinateRetribution: While his throwing Milo out was mostly for him being mixed race and his father no longer there to protect him, it also stemmed from him getting Wallace to stop his AttemptedRape of Brigitte.

* PolitcallyIncorrectVillain: Repeatedly makes it clear that he blames the werewolf curse on Fort Bailey on white men marrying and having children with aboriginals. He constantly refers to them as savages and heathens and interlaces this in nearly all his sermons.

A veteran of the War of 1812, and the Sergeant Major of Fort Bailey. He is less paranoid about the sisters, but is enough of a jerk that he attacks them anyway, simply for being out at night.

night. That's far from the worst of it.

* AttemptedRape: When he and the reverend abduct Ginger to test her blood, James takes this as an opprotunity to try to force himself onto Brigitte before Wallace intervenes.
* BadBoss: Kills one of his men during a werewolf attack and describes how he sees them as expendable, especially if they are not white.

Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog: You'd almost think this is a hobby of his as he gives a toast to the Hunter who has been protecting him, describing how he used aboriginals in his unit as cannon fodder; tries to beat the sisters just for being out at night; attempts to force himself onto Brigitte; hunts down and beat Geoffry; and throws the mixed race Milo out to die the werewolf infested forests when his father dies.
* SociopathicSoldier: If his constant Jerkass and KickTheDog behaviour wasn't enough, there's his description how he saw the First Nations in his unit as expendable, and during his AttemptedRape on Brigitte, ''forced her to bite his hand so hard it draws blood and smear it on her face'' as a way of getting off.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Is openly hostile towards First Nations. He describes how he used aboriginals in his unit as CannonFodder, refuses to leave the Fort if it meant being guided by a "savage" and throws out Milo upon his father's death simply because he is mixed race.
