* ArsonMurderAndAdmiration: He admits he admires [[spoiler:the man who became the King of Shadows, due to his willingness to make the ultimate sacrifice to protect his homeland]]. He's still going to stop him though.

* CantKillYouStillNeedYou: If you don't state it outright, someone else will; he performed the fifth part of the five rituals of cleansing necessary to fight the King of Shadows' army and you are unable to do it yourself on account of the statue being broken by a Shadow Reaver, which prevents you from killing him.

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He had a family before he became a warlock, which seems to have been part of his intial motivation to stop the King of Shadows. He claims that all his kin have died out in the years before his return. [[spoiler:As it turns out, not ''quite'' all of them died out...]]

* IveComeTooFar: On several occasions he states this is why he's still fighting. If he backs down and stops fighting, the King of Shadows will more than likely destroy Neverwinter and pose a grave threat to the entire Sword Coast.

If he ever backs down and stops fighting, the King of Shadows will more than likely destroy Neverwinter and pose a grave threat to the entire Sword Coast.Coast... but it will also mean that ''Ammon Jerro has given in'', and everything he did will have been for nothing. He will never allow it.



* NeutralEvil: In-universe. Whatever kindness or good intentions he had have long ago dwindled, leaving a desire for power and an ego that refuses to be defeated. However, don't mistake his alignment for genuine malevolence; his sole reason for being is that his old foe, the King of Shadows, is still at large and has to be stopped, and no matter what [[spoiler:Ammon will refuse to side with him no matter how little influence you have.]]

However, don't mistake his alignment for genuine malevolence; his sole reason for being is that his old foe, the King defeated; whatever depravity he must commit or beneficence he must sacrifice, if he believes it will get him closer to winning, he ''will'' do it. It creates a curious kind of Shadows, is still at large and has to be stopped, and no loyalty.

-->'''Ammon Jerro:''' You could promise all that and more, Garius. But for all your empty promises, I have seen the one I follow accomplish so much more. And Garius, [[AndThisIsFor for mentioning]] [[spoiler:[[SacrificialLion Shandra]]]] [[AndThisIsFor to me]], I shall enjoy watching you die.

* {{Familiar}}: Has a [[MyRulesAreNotYourRules unique familiar]] in the form of Kaji, a gargoyle-like flying homunculus and one of the earliest constructs she ever animated. Kaji is advanced enough to serve the party in place of a stopgap rogue, i.e. picking locks and tripping traps, but not enough to [[YouNoTakeCandle speak in complete sentences]]. Though in fairness, Safiya was apparently quite young when she created him. [[spoiler: The Child is a better rogue, but only evil parties are likely to recruit him.]]



* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: If your primary exposure to Red Wizards in the past has been [[VideoGame/BaldursGateII Edwin]], then Safiya seems to be going out of her way to show they're not all like that.



* ChaoticNeutral: In-universe.

to:

* ChaoticNeutral: In-universe. Mostly takes the form of being selfish and capricious.



* MutuallyExclusivePartyMembers: [[spoiler:If you accept Kelemvor's offer and agree to defend the City of Judgment against the Third Crusade, Kaelyn will abandon you, effectively replacing you as the Crusade's de facto leader, but Araman will [[GuestStarPartyMember join you in her place]], having come full circle as a cleric of Kelemvor, the same god Kaelyn abandoned. The battle for the city plays out effectively the same but from the opposite perspective, right up to battling Kaelyn instead of Araman at Eternity's End.]]



* MutuallyExclusivePartyMembers: After defeating him at Mulsantir, [[spoiler:if you devour his spirit, his power is such that a kind of metaphysical husk is left behind. If you bring this husk to the crematorium in the Death's God Vault in Shadow Mulsantir, the spirits trapped there can escape into the husk, becoming the companion One of Many.]]



* NeutralEvil: In-universe. There are no redeeming features whatsoever to One-of-Many. Even its loyalty to the main character comes only from recognising power that could destroy it forever, and fearing/desiring/hating that power all in equal measure.

to:

* MutuallyExclusivePartyMembers: The only way to recruit One of Many is to [[spoiler:bring the husk of the dead Okku to the crematorium in the Death God's Vault below Shadow Mulsantir. There, the angry spirits of Myrkul's dead enemies have been imprisoned in the furnace for ages, but they can escape by taking up residence in the pelt, becoming a kind of undead spectral abomination, apparently unique in all the Realms.]]

* OptionalPartyMember: [[spoiler: Should the player decide to betray the Betrayer's Crusade and side with Kelemvor, Araman joins in place of Kaelyn, who leaves the party.]]

Added DiffLines:

* WalkingSpoiler: A regular blizzard of white text.


Added DiffLines:

* WalkingSpoiler: [[RuleOfThree Rule]] [[RunningGag of]] [[VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment Three]]. It's just that kind of game.

* TheGenericGirl: To an extent, as her sole purpose for appearing in the storyline is to help the KC acquire their InfinityPlusOneSword and perform the Illefarn rituals necessary to defeat the King of Shadows. In Act 3 her only meaningful contribution is that she can recite the True Names of the Shadow Reavers to destroy them - and even that crucial responsibility can be loaded off to Ammon Jerro, thus reducing her to an extra healer/divine caster, possibly ''the'' healer/divin caster should Elanee [[spoiler:leave the party after killing off the Circle]].

* PardonMyKlingon: She uses "illithid" as a curse. Given her people's histoy with the mind flayers, this is an appropriate use of the word (and a pretty grievous insult).

[[spoiler:Ammon Jerro survives the end of the original campaign, and potentially has a minor role in ''Mask of the Betrayer''. The party encounters his body at the Academy of Shapers and Binders, and with a bit of clever [[DealWithTheDevil dealing]] can recover his soul and restore him. He explains that he managed to follow the player character during his kidnapping, and is the one to provide details about the fates of your companions from the OC. He [[GuestStarPartyMember joins the player for a small amount of time in chapter two]], and also sends demonic reinforcements to aid the player in the final chapter of the expansion.]]

* BadassGrandpa[=/=]OlderThanTheyLook: His age is indeterminate but he's at least old enough to be the thirty-something Shandra Jerro's grandfather. Or great-grandfather, or great-great-grandfather; Shandra apparently isn't sure. Likely justifications are that, A, mages have a tendency to live longer than baseline humans anyway, and B, lots and lots of contact with other planes where time can be a little weird. As for being a {{Badass}}? ''He went hand-to-hand against an avatar of the King of Shadows and fought it to a standstill.''
