** Robbing people of their organs proves to be one in ''3.'' The conspiracy enrages Max so badly that he actually lets a favela boss who just killed his principal live to take revenge on the doctor performing the surgeries.

* ShadowArchetype: Of Max, especially played up in the second game. Surface-wise, he wears a flashy, white suit, where Max has his trademark black leather jacket. He is a carrier-criminal, Max is a cop. Where Vlad is loud, bombastic, and emotional, Max is quiet, gloomy, and stoic.

During a drunken dispute in a bar in Hoboken, Max kills Anthony [=DeMarco=]'s only son. [=DeMarco=] promptly sets out to waste Max, sending dozens of armed thugs against him in a berserker rage.

* TheDon: By the time of 2012, he apparently runs New York's mafia families.

!!Max's Loved Ones

[[folder:Michelle Payne]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Haviland Morris

Max's wife. She worked at the New York D.A.'s office before she was murdered for getting too close to the Valkyr Conspiracy.

* HeKnowsTooMuch: The Payne family was targeted not as part of a personal vendetta, but because Woden leaked info on Valkyr to the D.A.'s office where Michelle Payne worked. Max suddenly recalls this in a flashback, but Michelle doesn't seem to realize what she's uncovered. Ironically, she probably would have let the story fall through the cracks, [[RevealingCoverup but Nicole Horne overreacted]] [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill a bit]].
* TheLostLenore: For Max as his lost wife that he loved dearly.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Rose Payne]]

Max's baby daughter. Like her mother, she too is a victim of the Valkyr conspiracy.

* InfantImmortality: Notably averted. Rose is the first character to get killed in the series. Everything just goes downhill from there.

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/902c54e54f1c19f825266f37bc56c3aa.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Julian Dean

->'''Max:''' ''"I might have written the book on bad ideas, but Passos wasn't afraid to quote from it."''

A friend of Max's from the police academy. He offers Max a private security gig in Sao Paulo, which is what prompts Max to leave New York.

* AcePilot: Subverted. He's a very competent helicopter pilot, able to weave between skyscrapers and dodge [[StuffBlowingUp an RPG]]. However, since Max was hanging on over the helicopter's side, compensating for the helicopter's movements while shooting mooks, his skills [[DefiedTrope don't get much appreciation]] from Max.
* BecomingTheMask: [[spoiler:Despite his deceit when recruiting him, it is made quite clear that he has come around to genuinely view Max as a good friend and brother-in-arms.]]
* BigDamnHeroes: Saves Max's painkiller-addicted ass several times throughout the game, most notably at [[spoiler: The Imperial Palace Hotel.]]
* BodyguardCrush: Max reveals early on that he was aware of Passos' relationship with Giovanna. [[spoiler: He was not aware, however, that by the time he had met her, she was already {{pregnant|Hostage}} with Passos' child.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Is snarky enough to engage in SnarkToSnarkCombat with Max.
* FireForgedFriends: He's been through so much with Max that the latter is willing [[spoiler: to forgive him for his deceit and apparent betrayal.]]
* TheLancer: He's Max's sidekick for a couple of levels, although he always seems to be doing the least dangerous job that he possibly can be.
* LovableTraitor: Passos [[spoiler:lies about his nationality and his shared past with Max, gets Max [[UnwittingPawn embroiled]] in a scheme to grant Victor Branco the popular mayoral vote, [[ChangedMyMindKid almost skips town]] with Giovanna to leave Max at the mercy of their enemies, and]] [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking always tells]] bad jokes at [[SnarkToSnarkCombat Max' expense]], yet Max just can't resolve to hate him.
* LoveRedeems: [[spoiler:If Giovanna wasn't pregnant with his kid, he might not have survived. Passos ducks out of the game's plot the moment he finds that out.]]
* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: [[JustifiedTrope Justified.]] If you compare Passos' Portuguese accent with that of other Portuguese-speaking characters, it sounds a little... different. [[spoiler: It turns out he's actually Colombian, and was ordered to hide his true nationality by Victor.]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: [[spoiler:When he learns Giovanna is pregnant with his kid, he wisely decides to skip town with her.]]
* VitriolicBestBuds: More like Max' [[FriendlessBackground Vitriolic]] ''[[FriendlessBackground Only]]'' [[FriendlessBackground Bud]], but much of their interaction seems to be composed of playfully vicious insults directed towards each other.

to:

!!Unidade de Forças Especiais
!!Police of Sao Paulo

[[folder:Wilson Da Silva]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Stephen Girasuolo

Da Silva is a reasonably honest cop and a family man in Sao Paulo, which requires him to have a certain amount of moral flexibility. He's an unexpected ally to Max after Fabiana's kidnapping.

* ActionSurvivor: The above easily qualifies him for a spot in an ActionDuo with Max. He even {{discusse|dTrope}}s and then {{invoke|dTrope}}s Max' status as the ActionHero [[spoiler: after he explains Max' part as an UnwittingPawn in Victor's scheme.]]
* BadassDriver: [[spoiler: At the game's climax, he breaks into an airport runway in his dinky sedan and ferries Max across the runway to catch up with Victor's escaping plane, and all the while, Max is [[StuffBlowingUp blasting]] Victor's UFE detail to shreds with a GrenadeLauncher]].
* {{Brains|AndBrawn}}: To Max' Brawn.
* TheCommissionerGordon: To Max
* CowboyCop: Not to the extent Max once was, but Max wouldn't have been able to bring [[spoiler: Victor]] to justice if he hadn't [[LoopholeAbuse bent a few rules]] to feed Max information, start a PrisonRiot, and gain access to an airport runway.
* DeadpanSnarker: Not as much as Max or Passos, but he has his moments too.
* FriendOnTheForce: Downplayed. He's a perfectly competent investigator on his own, and he only needs Max to get evidence that he already knows exists, but is in the possession of [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections a party]] that will kill him if he tried to take it himself.
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: Inverted. He's practically the game's most avid cigarette smoker, but he's actually a good guy. See JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's an arrogant and smug bastard, but he actually wants to help bring justice to crime and turns out to be Max' most dependable ally. [[spoiler:And the only one that remains throughout the last few chapters.]]
* TheLancer
* LoopholeAbuse: His entire role in the game's plot is essentially to point Max in the right direction, because while da Silva's hands are tied - either by the vast wealth and influence of the person he's after, the corruption of the local police forces, or his target being a large heavily-armed organization of some kind - Max's aren't.
* NonActionGuy: Da Silva {{invoke|dTrope}}s this in order to avoid the bad guys pulling a HeKnowsTooMuch on him. [[spoiler:It works.]]

[[folder:Wilson Da Silva]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Stephen Girasuolo

Da Silva is a reasonably honest cop and a family man in Sao Paulo, which requires him to have a certain amount of moral flexibility. He's an unexpected ally to Max after Fabiana's kidnapping.

* ActionSurvivor: The above easily qualifies him for a spot in an ActionDuo with Max. He even {{discusse|dTrope}}s and then {{invoke|dTrope}}s Max' status as the ActionHero [[spoiler: after he explains Max' part as an UnwittingPawn in Victor's scheme.]]
* BadassDriver: [[spoiler: At the game's climax, he breaks into an airport runway in his dinky sedan and ferries Max across the runway to catch up with Victor's escaping plane, and all the while, Max is [[StuffBlowingUp blasting]] Victor's UFE detail to shreds with a GrenadeLauncher]].
* {{Brains|AndBrawn}}: To Max' Brawn.
* TheCommissionerGordon: To Max
* CowboyCop: Not to the extent Max once was, but Max wouldn't have been able to bring [[spoiler: Victor]] to justice if he hadn't [[LoopholeAbuse bent a few rules]] to feed Max information, start a PrisonRiot, and gain access to an airport runway.
* DeadpanSnarker: Not as much as Max or Passos, but he has his moments too.
* FriendOnTheForce: Downplayed. He's a perfectly competent investigator on his own, and he only needs Max to get evidence that he already knows exists, but is in the possession of [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections a party]] that will kill him if he tried to take it himself.
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: Inverted. He's practically the game's most avid cigarette smoker, but he's actually a good guy. See JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's an arrogant and smug bastard, but he actually wants to help bring justice to crime and turns out to be Max' most dependable ally. [[spoiler:And the only one that remains throughout the last few chapters.]]
* TheLancer
* LoopholeAbuse: His entire role in the game's plot is essentially to point Max in the right direction, because while da Silva's hands are tied - either by the vast wealth and influence of the person he's after, the corruption of the local police forces, or his target being a large heavily-armed organization of some kind - Max's aren't.

But when he starts [[spoiler: massacring the homeless and disenfranchised for their organs, not to mention hiring his militia out as an assassination squad]], he's arguably become just as bad as the men he's after.
* LawEnforcementInc: His company's primary source of income comes from working security details for right-wing politicians.
* LawmanGoneBad: Was once an [[SWATTeam UFE Captain]] who then formed the Crachá Preto to respond to the gang crimes [[VigilanteMan he couldn't touch as a cop]]. Over time, they grew into a fairly fearsome gang in their own right, [[spoiler: even becoming involved in OrganTheft.]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[spoiler: Had the chance to blow Max and Passos out of the sky after the firefight at the stadium, but decided against it because he was being paid to retrieve the money, not kill two nobodies. Suffice to say, that comes back to bite ''everybody'', including him.]]
* PornStache
* PrivateMilitaryContractors
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: His connections to Brazilian politicians[[spoiler:, including Victor Branco,]] are why he believes the criminal acts that his company engages in [[spoiler: (especially its OrganTheft operation)]] are perfectly legitimate. Max tells him they can't help now.
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler: Victor was allowed to get a cut of the profits from the Crachá Preto's OrganTheft ring in exchange for the UFE providing "donors" to harvest from.
