* SelfMutilationDemonstration: You do this quite a bit - even killing yourself a few times for various reasons. One of the more notable examples is scaring an over-eager would-be Dustman away from trying to join by telling them how you can return from death and then snapping your neck to prove it. There's even a very bored and crazy Sensate noblewoman who will pay you money for letting her kill you.

* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: A karach blade becomes stronger and sharper with the will of the wielder. If you [[VideoGameCaringPotential help Dak'kon clear his mind of self-doubt]] and increase his morale, his blade will change into a straighter form that offers more spells and better protection, because he wants to protect you. Likewise, if you [[spoiler:[[VideoGameCrueltyPotential torture him by lording his plight over him]]]], the blade will become twisted, jagged, and very, very good at killing - because he really desperately wants you dead.

* KickTheDog: He was one ''cold'' bastard. Almost every single one of his appearances sees him do something repulsive and vile to an undeserving victim for his own benefit. What's perhaps most terrifying is that he didn't ''care'' that they suffered, it wasn't even for his enjoyment. From his point of view, it simply had to be done. His virtual laundry list of atrocities included mental/spiritual torture (Dak'kon), physical torture (Morte) and general bastardry, but leading Deionarra into a HeroicSacrifice is widely considered to be his worst. He ''never'' loved her and intentionally manipulated Deionarra into falling in love with him, just so his betrayal of her would curse her to be a useful ghost.

Of course, it was always specifically to help ''himself'', no one else, so the necessity is a little arguable... That being said, your quest might well be impossible if not for the clues he left behind, many of which could not have survived the passing of the years if not for his ruthlessness.

Fire, burning forever, unable to die. Of course, none of them ever expected Ignus to actually ''like'' it that way.



* Creator/CharlieAdler: Gleefully [[LargeHam over the top]] in this particular role.



* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: For burning down half the Hive, all the minor mages of the ward gathered together and turned Ignus's body into an open, permanent gate to the Elemental Plane of Fire, his body burning in constant agony. Impressive work even for a real mage. Ignus himself very much approves.



* GoneHorriblyRight: They wanted Ignus to burn forever. They didn't count on that being what Ignus wanted, too.



* LargeHam: Courtesy of Creator/CharlieAdler, gleefully over the top in this particular role.



* MeaningfulName: "Ignus" is very similar to "Ignis", which is Latin for fire. It's implied Ignus chose the name for himself.

* EvilBrit: Inverted. She's a morally straight succubus whose posh British accent emphasises her image as a chaste ProperLady.

* KavorkaMan: With high charisma (and, in some cases, even without), he is inexplicably attractive to women, but still looks like... ''that''.

Fall-From-Grace says that he's actually quite handsome under all the scars, though, and Annah implies that she finds his leathery skin attractive, so he might not be ''that'' ugly by the setting's standards.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: He may try to take over your mind and seize control over your body. If your Wisdom is high enough, you can make him regret it thoroughly.

to:

* GrandTheftMe: He ''cannot'' be convinced to stop trying to steal your body, no matter what. His ego prevents him from acknowledging that you stand a better chance of victory than he, even if you are his mental and physical superior.

* PurposelyOverpowered: In a straight fight, he's one the most powerful companions in the game. He's a LightningBruiser with a colossal health pool and a powerful default weapon you'll likely not want to change. Taken UpToEleven during the final battle: [[spoiler:with the right dialogue options, the Nameless One can incite him into an UnstoppableRage against the Transcendent One, giving him an absolutely gigantic stat boost -- often more than enough for Vhailor to strike down the final boss all on his own.]]

* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: Vhailor claims that Justice herself empowers him; that in the face of a seemingly insurmountable injustice, he will become Justice's avatar and be granted the power to do the impossible, even sunder the thrones of gods. [[spoiler:If the Nameless One can convince Vhailor of the depths of the BigBad's true evil and villainy, he will gain a '''colossal''' boost to his stats for the final battle, enough raw power to destroy the final boss on his own.]]

* PetTheDog: In the best ending... and in his own way. [[spoiler:He'll encourage The Nameless One to accept whatever punishment awaits him in death and to serve his full sentence, since through enduring righteous punishment comes perfection.]]
