* {{Jerkass}}: Isran has insulted or driven away almost every other member of the Dawnguard, which is part of the reason he needs the Dragonborn to recruit them. Even when Dexion (member of an immensely respected order of scholars) arrives in Fort Dawnguard, he'll note that Isran was rather unpleasant with him. When speaking to Sorine, she frequently comments that she hopes the Dovahkiin is getting along with Isran since "he takes some getting used to," and she and Gunmar can be heard having private conversations about his abrasiveness.

* WeaksauceWeakness: Despite his rather extensive list of immunities, [[OneHitKill Mehrunes' Razor]] isn't among them. If you get lucky with it, the fight can end rather quickly.

* GenreSavvy: She knows that "trading equipment" likely means "[[WhatTheHellPlayer dumping all the heavy stuff you don't want to carry on her.]]"



* GenreSavvy: He's fully aware that [[spoiler:the ebony mine reopening]] just means more work, though he considers it worth the effort. He also questions any newcomers about what they're doing, which is fair enough.



* GenreSavvy: He's fully aware that he has limited means with which to defend the town, and quick to deduce the Ash Spawn attacks [[ItCanThink actually are organized]]. He's also suspicious that Glover's not all that he claims to be. [[spoiler: He's right, to a point. Although Glover has truly good intentions for the town, he used to be in the Thieves' Guild.]]



* GenreSavvy: He'll send assassins after the Dragonborn the moment said Dragonborn confirms his/her birthright by retrieving the horn of Jurgen Windcaller. He'll also not bother with fighting you when you first meet him [[spoiler:in Apocrypha, since that would just send you back to Nirn. Instead, he orders his minions to send you back]].
** See NinjaLooter. He knows that by doing this, he denies you power while fueling his own.

* InformedAttribute: The Creation Kit reveals that his class is [[TheBlacksmith Blacksmith]] and his Smithing skill is high, but he does not show it, at least in the game proper. (One reason is because he is the leader of the Dawnguard; the other reason is because Gunmar, the resident blacksmith, is already present, so scripting Isran to do smithing work would be redundant.) On the other hand, early in the Dawnguard questline the members mention that Isran has been preparing to fight the vampires by stockpiling armaments, and the lack of funds implies that he made most of them himself.

* AbusiveParents[=/=]ParentalNeglect: Much of the crux of her relationship with Harkon and Valerica, and the reason she joins the Dovahkiin. Keep in mind that her parents used to be followers of Molag Bal, King of Rape, back when they were mortals. Also, see RapeAsBackstory.

** Sorine, the resident GadgeteerGenius and one of the more CrazyPrepared of the bunch, is the resident SmartGirl.

* RousingSpeech: Before the Dawnguard head out to [[StormingTheCastle storm Castle Volkihar]], Isran takes a moment to rally their spirits with a speech.



* BilingualBonus: His name means "fool" in Russian, though it is a NonIndicativeName.

* DaddyIssues: Oh lord yes. She laments that it all sounds so cliché (or "common" as she terms it). Although considering who daddy is, issues are perfectly understandable. Surprisingly, she does not have a matching set of mommy issues until after the Soul Cairn trip.

* MagicKnight: Prefers magic but will pull out a melee weapon and start swinging if needed, and her One-handed and Light Armor skills are actually a few points higher than her mage skills.
* NeckLift: When she encounters the one responsible for the prophecy that doomed her family, she expresses her displeasure very ''physically''.

* {{Protectorate}}: The Dragonborn can make it very clear to both Lord Harkon and the Dawnguard that she is under ''[[TheChampion their]]'' protection. Repeat: The walking divine intervention [[AlwaysABiggerFish against dragonkind]] will ''not'' suffer any harm coming to her.

* SleptThroughTheApocalypse: If the Dragonborn has started the main quest but not completed it, this means that Serana not only wakes up ''during'' Alduin's apocalypse, but accidentally causes Lord Harkon to begin enacting ''his'' apocalypse as well.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Much like Jarl Idgrod and her identically named daughter, examination and slight modification to facial textures in the Creation Kit reveals that Serana is the spitting image of her mother Valerica.
* TokenGoodTeammate: On the Volkihar side, she's the only vampire to express any respect for mortals.

* UndyingLoyalty: She might possibly be the single most loyal companion in the game. On the Dawnguard path, she'll knowingly march into a fort full of vampire hunters alone to give the Dragonborn vital information. She will also trust the Dragonborn not to sell her out if on the Vampire path.

* EvilCounterpart: To the [[PlayerCharacter Dovahkiin]], as a Dragonborn who ''could'' have defeated Alduin and was called upon to help do it, but instead used his powers to try and stake his own claim to world conquest. [[spoiler:Not to mention he made a deal with a Daedric Prince for power.]] The end of the ''Dragonborn'' trailer hearkens back to the ''Skyrim'' trailer, only with Miraak absorbing three Dragon souls, while a DarkReprise of the main theme plays with the lyrics twisted to reflect his menace. He even lampshades it.

** He can also be seen as the culmination of Arngeir and Paarthunax's warnings about the Dragonborn's innate draconic desire to conquer and the dangers of using the Thu'um for selfish purposes. .
