** He gave Claes permission to plant a vegetable garden when she asked him, despite having no particular reason to do so. It's implied that it's because he feels guilty about [[spoiler: having betrayed her handler, Raballo, to the Agency and gotten him killed.]]

Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: He briefly gives Rico a hug and reassures her that she is doing fine, after she worries about her lack of emotional response to Angelica's death. As distant as Rico and Jean seem to be, Rico is still a cyborg who appreciates attention from her handler.

Added DiffLines:

* StandingBetweenTheEnemies: [[spoiler: She stands between the SWA and the army column that's been ordered to take them all out, and asks the soldiers not to attack. They refuse to fire on her and the SWA is able to surrender peacefully without any further bloodshed.]]


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: In the final standoff, Claes stands between the Agency and an army of soldiers who have been ordered to take them all out. One of the soldiers asks her if she knew Claudio Raballo, and Claes drops her weapon and collapses in tears...because no matter how hard she thinks, she still can't remember him.]]

* {{Foil}}: Her life as an ordinary teenager contrasts with Triela's, whose only purpose is her work.

* NostalgiaFilter: Whenever Jose has a flashback memory of Enrica, she's portrayed as the [[PurityPersonified personification of innocence]]. When the manga starts to cover Enrica's backstory, she's shown to be a lot more [[ClingyJealousGirl flawed and human]], and more interested in playing soccer than the harp.

* {{Bifauxnen}}

to:

* {{Bifauxnen}}{{Bifauxnen}}: Due to her handler, not herself (though she doesn't mind).


Added DiffLines:

* HatesWearingDresses: She finds dresses too constricting for her.

* BerserkButton: When a terrorist starts hitting Jose this creates a subconscious reminder of her own trauma -- Henrietta responds by [[HandbagOfHurt hitting the man in the jaw]] with [[SenselessViolins her violin case]] then killing every terrorist in the apartment, despite direct orders from Jose not to act until they'd spotted their target.

* ClingyJealousGirl: Henrietta has a face like dip whenever her handler Jose pays attention to someone other than herself.
** A significant representative scene from the first series of the anime: Marco is supervising Henrietta and Angelica on the shooting range. Jose arrives - but does not immediately speak to Henrietta, instead greeting Marco and complimenting Angelica on her improving accuracy. Henrietta watches the conversation - and praise - with a silent scowl, and then starts deliberately throwing off her aim to falsely suggest that her own technique is poor. She thus gets rewarded with private tuition with Jose all afternoon!

* PluckyGirl: Apparently guileless, Rico has a bright, sunny, genial and bubbly disposition that nothing can seem to dull. Arguably ThePollyanna given that she has a harsh handler, but unlike the classic Pollyanna the entire universe is not conspiring to make Rico's life a misery, and she enjoys friends and many benefits in her Agency life, too.

* {{Shorttank}}: While Rico's personality is well away from that of a tomboy (cf. PluckyGirl above), neither can she be said to be especially feminine. She has a boy's name, a permanent cropped haircut, and a wardrobe consisting entirely of sweatshirts, jerseys and trousers.
** This is really a reflection of her handler, who treats Rico in a utilitarian way -- partially to not get attached to her since she'll die sooner or later.
* SlasherSmile: Rico seems to [[ExaltedTorturer enjoy the prospect of torturing]] a Padania suspect.

* [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled Better To Die Than Be Reconditioned]]: Expresses to Hilshire that she'd rather die than have him see her like that, in part because she doesn't want him to have any more regrets than he already does about the [=SWA=].
** Hilshire's reaction, "Is that your will?" (The document, Japanese doesn't have the double meaning). Triela, "Yes it's a will."

* CuteAsABouncingBetty: When Triela was learning hand-to-hand fighting with the [=GIS=], she picked up a nickname. What did the Special Forces call the little killing machine? Lepretto (roughly "bunny") after a child's doll that shares her TwinTails.
** Leading to a Crowning Moment of Cuteness when Triela runs into those GIS troopers the following year -- they immediately start rubbing her [[TwinTails "bunny ears"]] for luck. Cue LuminescentBlush.
* DarkSkinnedBlond: And it adds to the mysteriousness of her origins. She is, however, ''decidedly'' [[TheDitz non-ditzy]], breaking type a little.
** Triela originates from Tunisia, lending greater support to mixed ethnicity.

* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: Triela owns a number of bears, but these are an austere ornamental collection rather than a soft pile of fuzzy teddies to cuddle (sort of, it's left quite vague). The severe names she gives the eighth bear onwards (after Roman Emperors) is remarked on by other characters.
** She's shown cuddling and dressing them up, but only after she realized that the bears were in fact signs of Hilshire's affection for her, not just something given to shut her up at Christmas.

Added DiffLines:

* InconsistentColoring: Early chapters had her skin color not be shaded in. It wasn't until several volumes in that her being darker skinned than the others became obvious even in monochrome.
