* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Considering he's the first of the [=SWA=]'s enemies to use such things as bait-and-switch traps and anti-materiel weaponry...

* MaternallyChallenged: Hilshire doesn't know how to deal with this child who's been thrust into his care, so keeps an emotional distance. This improves Triela as an assassin by making her self-reliant, but also leads to their {{Tsundere}} relationship.

* GermanicDepressives: Hilshire seems the typical "serious German" to his fellow handlers, and when the audience first sees him he's keeping an emotional distance from Triela, leaving her [[MasteroftheMixedMessage confused as to exactly what he expects of her]]. But it turns out that Hilshire's just never been comfortable [[MaternallyChallenged dealing with children]] or socialising with others.

* AllegoricalAdventure: The manga very intentionally sets up Henrietta and Jose's plot to mirror that of the mythological tale of Orion and Artemis.

* 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.

* NietzscheWannabe: Sandro is specifically recruited from Intelligence because [[ByronicHero his morals will be more flexible]] than the military and police types previously recruited as handlers (e.g. police and soldiers are supposed to protect women and children, whereas spies are more likely to be {{Manipulative Bastard}}s). He has no discernable patriotism or sense of duty. He loves to watch people, not interact with them. However, perhaps because of that there are several instances where he gives bad guys every opportunity to surrender and tries to talk them down.
