* {{Badass}}: and how!



* GoodScarsEvilScars: Subverted the [[spoiler: scar he sports is on his left cheek given to him by Elandria, which was torn open by a CurbStompBattle he suffered though not long after opened it so it become a huge, ugly ragged thing. So bad it gave [[{{Badass}} Commissar Tathe]] pause.]] He hides it behind PeekABangs. He could get it covered with false flesh, but chooses to keep it as a [[MyGreatestFailure reminder.]] Still doesnt stop him from being a ChickMagnet, though.

* Badass: He kills a [[spoiler: daemon! He uses an [[MoreDakka autocannon]], but still! And it's a good bet he'd killed more before and after. And is the one to finally take down Glaitis, although he has to [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifce himself to do it.]]]]



* {{Badass}}: Doesn't get shown doing much [[spoiler: until Upon Blood Sands when he proves it without a doubt.]]



* {{Badass}}: Even before she developed her psychic powers she was able to fight numerous of the infamous [[Novel/GauntsGhosts Blood Pact elite.]] single handed. As a mere Planetary Defense sergeant!



* {{Badass}}: Although he's never seen in combat this is a given being an Imperial Guard officer of a Cadian regiment. It also turned out later he and Garrakson survived an [[spoiler: attack by Night Lords Chaos Space Marines.]]

* GenreSavvy: Attelus is up to DangerouslyGenreSavvy levels.
** One example: When confronted with a ganger who puts HonourBeforeReason, Attelus betrays the guy, and when he shoots the ganger he shoots him many times to make sure that he was actually dead.
--->"I knew it was over kill but these "Honour Before Reason" idiots were usually tough bastards and that was the only way I could make sure he wasn't ever getting back up."
** His genre savviness is used as a character flaw: [[spoiler: his reaction to Elandria's death shows that he kind of knows he's the main character and is therefore highly selfish and paranoid]].



** MoreDakka
* GenreSavvy: Not nearly as much as Attelus, but that could be due to his having a lot less screen time.

* DrugsAreBad: Has this attitude toward combat stimms, refusing to use them due to their side effects and his [[{{Irony}} pragmatism]] due to the belief if he became too reliant on them, he wouldn't be as effective if caught out without a hit. He's still able to go toe to toe with Elandria when she's high, though.



** Doesn't remember [[spoiler: her time training under [[ManBehindTheMan Farseer Faleaseen]] due to this. She remembers what she learned, though. [[Irony ironically.]]]]

** In Secret War he derides Glaitis, Karmen and even [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Brutis Bones]] for their manipulation of their employees but resorts to said tactics in Upon Blood Sands.



* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler: can't remember much of his time living in the ruins of [[DoomedHomeTown Varander]] at first this seems due to severe PTSD but is later reveal Estella Erith tried to erase it from hims mind to prevent him becoming an [[ProfessionalKiller assassin.]]

* ConsummateLiar: Zigzagged, one of his sayings is 'the best way to lie is to tell the truth.' So only properly lies when he really needs to. A good example is when someone asks him if he 'knows everything' (meaning all of what's happened leading to their current situation) Attelus knows, of course but chooses to take it ''literally'' so when he answers he is telling the truth because he doesn't know ''everything'' such as how the universe was created. [[LoopHoleAbuse So he doesn't exhibit any sign]] of [[GuileHero lying.]]

Added DiffLines:

* GuileHero: Sometimes goes over to being a full fledged ManipulativeBastard. In Upon Blood Sands he really struggles with his instinct to be this while trying to be ReasonableAuthorityFigure and fails on a few occasions. This is mostly due to Glaitis' brainwashing, of course.

* HeroesPreferSwords: At first uses a mono molecular enhanced blade, given to him by his father. But later gets a [[CoolSword Master Crafted power sword]] from [[spoiler: Estella Erith/Karmen Kons.]]



* BadassBookworm: After [[spoiler: [[KickTheDog Attelus strangles him]] Garrakson teaches him how to punch and somehow manages to punch Attelus in the face so hard he gets knocked off his feet, this is AFTER Attelus is enhanced by Faleaseen. But almost breaks his hand in the process]]
