Added DiffLines:

* TeethClenchedTeamwork: With Grim in ''Conviction''. Sam does ''not'' want to work with her, but grudgingly does so because she has information regarding his daughter. In ''Blacklist'' Sam initially refuses to work with Grim, but the President overrides his refusal. This causes Sam to put aside his grudge with Grim and form a polite working relationship with her (although there is still an air of tension between them).

* GenreSavvy: He seems more intelligent and well-versed in the ways of high-tech espionage than previous ''Splinter Cell'' Big Bads. This is seen when he cuts out Brigg's subdermal implant in the bunker level.



* TheUnreveal: [[spoiler:His actual plan is never really elaborated on, aside from that he wants to get some kind of information from the Secretary of Defense's accounts, which he deems to be the most dangerous weapon available to the modern world. DangerouslyGenreSavvy as he is, he knows not to give a MotiveRant to his enemies.]]
