Added DiffLines:

* AntiVillain: He plots to take Elend's place as king, but isn't particularly villainous. He never does anything truly evil [[spoiler:before being mind-controlled by Ruin in the third book]], he actually [[spoiler:obtains the crown legally and without violence]] and he seems to respect Elend's idealism. He wants to give Luthadel to Straff, but only because he thinks that's the only way to survive.

* ObfuscatingStupidity: As Lady Valette Renoux.

to:

* ObfuscatingStupidity: As Lady Valette Renoux.Renoux and also as Vin the StreetUrchin at the beginning of the first book, she hides how intelligent and capable she really is.



* FantasticRacism: He hates all aristocrats with a passion and is very satisfied when he has to murder one. Of course, one can hardly blame him, given what they did to him and since [[AristocratsAreEvil most of them are evil anyway]]. However, it makes him unable [[spoiler:at first]] to realize that there are a few [[TokenGoodTeammate Token Good Teammates]] among them. His hate also extends to the guards JustFollowingOrders, including the skaas who chose to serve them to escape poverty.

However, it makes him unable [[spoiler:at first]] to realize that there are a few [[TokenGoodTeammate Token Good Teammates]] among them.



* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Of all Kelsier's crew, he is probably the most violently prejudiced against the nobility. This proves problematic once Elend takes over.
* HypercompetentSidekick: Of sorts- Kelsier's the one with the vision, but Dox's careful eye for details keeps the crew running long enough for him to realize it.

* NoImmortalInertia: [[spoiler:After Vin removes his Atiumminds, he rapidly ages until he is as old as he should be. It makes sense considering the magic system; the Aitumminds literally contained his youth and vitality]].

* ImplacableMan:With a HealingFactor as good as his, he can keep coming with even being impaled little more than a minor nuisance.

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: He thinks nothing of Pushing all the metals in Vin's body....and in the process Pushes out [[spoiler:the earring that keeps her from using Preservation's power in the mist]].

* PhysicalGod: By [[spoiler:combining Allomancy, Feruchemy, and Hemalurgy]], he gained this status. Details given in ''Literature/WaxAndWayne'' make it clear that if he had been using his full power, no one would have ever lasted more than five seconds against him. If he had all 16 Allomantic metals, he could, among other things, [[SuperSpeed speed his body infinitely, speed his mind infinitely]], [[SuperStrength draw upon infinite reserves of strength]], [[HealingFactor draw upon infinite healing]], [[TheAgeless never age]], [[WindsOfDestinyChange draw upon infinite luck]], [[TheNeedless never need to sleep, and never need to eat, drink, or breathe]]. [[labelnote:*]]Fortunately, he doesn't have access to the metals which allow him to compound Fortune, oxygen, and calories[[/labelnote]] And on top of all that, WordOfGod is that he had been using his allomancy for so long that he was either nearly or actually a savant with ''every'' metal. The only reason he didn't do most of those things is because he had been unchallenged for so long that he didn't see the need.

** TheTeamNormal

to:

** TheTeamNormalTheTeamNormal: He's also this by default.
* BoringButPractical: Everyone else have the cool magical abilities. Dockson is simply ''very'' good at organizing things, at buying what they need and at handling the group's finances. Vin quickly theorizes that the whole band would fall apart without him.
