Added DiffLines:

* BadBoss: A complex case. He's a little faster on the trigger with summary executions than his peers, but the victims we see on camera [[KickTheSonOfABitch generally deserve it]].


Added DiffLines:

* NobleDemon: Cunning and ruthless, yet he generally refrains from taking advantage of the genuinely innocent and absolutely despises those who take the EvilIsPetty approach.

* HiddenDepths: While he's rather blunt and doesn't seem to be much of a thinker at a first glance, he can make surprisingly deep and thoughtful observations, see the quote. See also DumbassHasAPoint.



* HotBlooded: Aggressive and easily provoked. Oberstein uses this once to provoke Bittenfeld into physically attacking him and places him under arrest for assaulting a superior officer.

Truniht was the Chairman of the Free Planets Alliance's High Council for much of the series and was generally a very slimy person. His defining characteristic, as commented on by many characters over the course of the series, was his utter shamelessness. Trunicht was willing to do whatever it took to maintain his position and privileges, and did not truly believe in the concept of democracy if it didn't serve his interests. [[spoiler:Even Kaiser Reinhard had underestimated how low he would sink when he offered Truniht a ministerial position in the newly-christened Neue Land (i.e.: the former Free Planets Alliance) government. He accepted without hesitation and continued to live comfortably right up until his death]].

** He is also a {{deconstruction}} of the BrilliantButLazy and HumbleHero tropes. Yang shows no political ambitions whatsoever. While he enjoys HundredPercentAdorationRating from both the Alliance's civilian population and those serving under his command due to his [[ShroudedInMyth legendary tactical genius]], he never actually use it to his advantage even when it is clear to everyone that he will make a much better political leader then those currently in power. And at the end of the day, all he really wants from life is to be able to retire with a large pension and live out the rest of his days writing political treatise while reading history books all day in peace. However, his [[LivingLegend unintentional status as both a symbol of the democratic ideals and as a war hero who has never been defeated in battle]] means that those in the position of power will simply never leave him alone, as he is just too much of a threat as long as he is alive.
