* OnlyInItForTheMoney: As per her WildCard status, she's entirely mercenary. It takes flashing several thousand nuyen just to get a referral to meet her. Paying her for her work takes the lion's share of the campaign (though she also points out that what you are asking her to do involves having to pay off a ''lot'' of ''other'' people, hence the hefty fee).

* OverratedAndUnderleveled: Is said to be one of Seattle's finest and most famous deckers, but he's no better than any other NPC decker and a main character focused on it will leave him in the dust.

* AntiVillain: A possibly well-intentioned goal, but blinded by his own prejudices and does extremely unethical things in pursuit of it.



* AllForNothing: He wins in ''none'' of the endings. [[spoiler: In the ending where the dragons are killed, he shoots himself as he realised that he allowed the Horrors to barge in. If you talked him down, Audran shoots him; if you didn't, he shoots himself at the end.]]

Employee "Employee" of Saeder-Krupp.



**[[spoiler: Given S-K's aversion to [=AI=], one cannot discount the possibility that he wanted the Berlin crew to take out APEX along the way.]]



* ExpositionOfImmortality: Likens the life of the ''Dragonfall'' Player Character to that of a moth from a dragon's point of view -- someone whose entire life passes between the other's heartbeats.

* FragileSpeedster: Not particularly tough, though more so than Dietrich. She makes up for that with an ability that adds 1 AP for several rounds, which makes a world of difference.

* FragileSpeedster: Not Early on, she's not particularly tough, though more so than Dietrich. She makes up for that with an ability that adds 1 AP for several rounds, which makes a world of difference. However, in the end-game, she flat out becomes a LightningBruiser.



* CorporateSamurai: She is a highly capable and experienced [=SWAT=] team commander her sells her services to the highest bidder. This includes Josephine Tsang and [[spoiler:Ares Macrotechnology]].
* DirtyCop: Brutal, extreme in her methods, and deeply corrupt.

* DidntThinkThisThrough: With enough Intelligence, the player can [[spoiler:remind her that Ares will not let her off after millions of nuyen worth of gear (the spider tanks) had been trashed for no good reason. This comes after you've shown her evidence that Ares is planning to bump her off after the whole assignment, and she had brushed that one off as something she can talk her way out of.]]
* DirtyCop: Brutal, extreme in her methods, and deeply corrupt. [[spoiler: Her true profession isn't really a cop at all; she's a merc for hire.]]



* DragonTheirFeet: You deal with her in the ''Shadows of Hong Kong'' bonus campaign, after Tsang has potentially been deposed.

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:Emilie comes back in ''Hong Kong'', hiding from corporate authorities after the Flux State falls. It seems that, no matter what happens between her and Blitz in ''Dragonfall'', it will be some time before they can be together again.]]

Alternatively, they did get back together again, but [[StarCrossedLovers were forced to separate in the chaos]].]]

* ViolationOfCommonSense: The player can invoke this by [spoiler: storing metadata till just before going after the Plastic-Faced Man, then spilling it all to Law in one deluge. Subverted in that this is the best way to get nuyen out of the metadata mini-game.]]

* TreacherousQuestGiver: You quickly figure out that he gave Monica the job to break into the manor on false pretenses, [[spoiler:and also that he didn't share any of his suspicions on the manor's defenses or owner that led to you going in unprepared. Ironically, him claiming to Monica that the job would be vital to the future of the Kreuzbasar turned out to be AccidentallyAccurate.]]

* ICouldaBeenAContender: Downplayed. Despite her age and power she's stuck in a middle-management position in the Triad. [[spoiler:She was screwed out of a bid for advancement by the BiggerBad, who double-crossed her on a deal that would have made her a 438 and went to Cheng's (easier to control) superior instead.]] Averted if the player makes decisions which are beneficial to her. [[spoiler: Her superior gets bumped off at the end of the main campaign, leaving her to take his place. In ''Shadows'', with the help of the player, she then carves out territory for the Yellow Lotus in Seattle.]]

* JadedWashout: Henry. Downplayed -- he's a former sailor and established the club purely out of necessity. He's completely out of his element and feels useless, not really providing for his family or doing anything. [[spoiler: He gets over it once he told Frederick of his past as a smuggler sailor (''not'' a pirate), and the family decides that the four of them could go to sea on a boat built by Henry.]]
