* ActualPacifist: States in his [[AllThereInTheManual cadet interview]] that he's unsure about whether he could actually kill another human, with plans to become a researcher like his father instead. However, this seems to have fully worn off by the time he joined ONI.
* BecameTheirOwnAntithesis: Goes from being a laid-back PlayfulHacker to a ruthless cog in ONI's propaganda machine.
* BreakTheCutie: Sullivan was easily the friendliest and most laid-back of Hastati Squad.

* CynicismCatalyst: The events of ''Forward Unto Dawn'' played a major role regarding who he became by the time of ''Hunt the Truth''.
* DisappearedDad: Mentions in his cadet interview that his father was a researcher for the UNSC, with the implication that he died sometime before the start of ''Forward Unto Dawn'', which serves as part of Sullivan's motivation for continuing to attend Corbulo, despite having no real ill will against the Innies.
** Additionally, supplementary information mentions that he and his siblings were primarily raised by their mother, due to their busy father being all but absent from their lives (except for being the parent who sent Michael to Corbulo in the first place).
