* NeverMyFault: He's [[spoiler:upset about Lalah but immediately blames Amuro]], doesn't seem overly fussed that abandoning his sole family member makes her spend the entire show breaking down in tears, and in general rationalizes everything he does as a consequence of war, vengeance, or something else. It's a mark of being TheSociopath.


Added DiffLines:

* TheUnapologetic: Seemingly lacking any shame or remorse, Char seeks vengeance for his father's supposed murder by the Zabis by murdering his friend Garma, who had nothing with do it. He contacts Garma to brag and laugh at him before he dies, then ditches everybody under his command and deserts. He's one hell of an UngratefulBastard to Kycilia later, and he's very cruel and coldblooded even to his own sister, showing almost no concern for her welfare as opposed to her anguish for him. It's part of being The Sociopath, but Char never makes a sincere apology or shows regret about ''anything'', rationalizing whatever he does as part of war, vengeance, or being someone else's fault.

* EnigmaticMinion: To the Zabis. It's obvious from early on that he has his own agenda that is not mutually compatible with their's, but just what he's after, and why he's working for them at all is not explained until near the end.

* MoralityPet: His affection for Lalah is completely genuine, unlike his friendship with almost everyone else.

to:

* MoralityPet: His affection for Subverted, hard. He's much fonder of the gentle and devoted Lalah Sune than of nearly anyone else. He's also using her to a large extent as a ReplacementGoldfish for the sister he continues to abandon, and is completely genuine, unlike the one responsible for Lalah's employment as a psychoweapon. He pays lip service to allowing her to guide him, but doesn't actually change any of his friendship with almost everyone else.behavior for her.



Degwin's third son (the second, Salso, [[PosthumousCharacter was killed before the series starts in a car bombing]], which is also where Dozle got those scars), Dozle Zabi is everything his older brother Gihren is not. An aggressive fleet admiral, Dozle commands Solomon Base and leads his troops from the front. A dedicated family man, he cares a great deal for his father, his brother Garma, and his wife and daughter.

* TheSociopath: Char has the limited emotional affect, LackOfEmpathy, [[BloodKnight need for stimulation]], consummate lying and manipulation abilities, ChronicBackstabbingDisorder, and a highly, highly questionable conscience. Murdering one Zabi is enough to prove all of this. [[spoiler: [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Murdering two just... really reinforces it]]]]. Over the course of his franchise appearances, he checks all the boxes.

* NeverMyFault: One thing about Char that remains consistent across all of his appearances is his absolute refusal to accept responsibility for his actions. He blames Amuro for Lalah's death, ignoring the fact that it was he himself who decided to turn a traumatized teenage prostitute into a SuperSoldier (which is Amuro's reason for blaming Char [[SubvertedTrope as much as himself]]). He blames Haman Khan for what Axis-Zeon becomes, rather than acknowledge his own role in it. He blames humanity for "making" him ColonyDrop them in ''CCA'', ignoring the fact that he's just acting his own issues. Char's fear of being held accountable is almost pathological, and admitting that anything is his own fault just might break him.



* PsychopathicManchild: What Char ultimately is, as he only thinks about what's good for him and does not take responsibility for things such as Lalah's death, Axis-Zeon or the ColonyDrop.
