** They're ObliviouslyEvil and don't realise the full horror of what their mutations do to sentient beings. Because of this, they think of their AssimilationPlot as a good thing.


Added DiffLines:

* ObliviouslyEvil: It's plain to see that they don't understand the pain and torment they cause to those they assimilate, which in turn explains why they can't see why anyone would reject their unity.

The head of Von Braun security, she takes her job seriously to the point that other crew members and even some of her subordinates consider her to be a hardliner, while the Rickenbacker military consider her faux-militanism as a joke. After the situation on the Von Braun heated up, she proclaimed Martial Law and executed all who opposed her. In the end she and her subordinates are killed in the mutiny.

--> '''Bronson''': They've killed my men and now they've killed me. I'm holding my guts inside of me with both hands. I'm almost done... resist. This is bigger than my little life, the lives of my men and the lives of the people I was forced to kill. Resist. Humanity demands it! Resist! ''<groans, bleeds out to the sound of gunfire>''

* HijackedByGanon: [[spoiler:There is ''no'' indication in the game itself that she survived the first game and is present in the second, until her famous reveal scene. The box art, however, prominently features her face, lessening the surprise of her reappearance.]]

[[spoiler: When impersonating Polito.]]]]
** In the original game, she does this in the NonStandardGameOver if you fire the mining laser at Earth, at which point she'll snarkily thank the Hacker for destroying human civilization and invite him to a party to celebrate.



* TheDreaded: After the Citadel Station incident, the name SHODAN essentially replaced the name Hitler as the synonym for ultimate evil. [[spoiler: In ''System Shock 2'', when she reveals her identity to Delacroix, Delacroix is suitably disturbed.]]



* MissedHimByThatMuch: When the game begins, the Hacker actually isn't the last surviving human on Citadel. There are other survivors out there (and he even gets a few broadcasts from some of them), but he always manages to reach them just moments after they've been found and killed by SHODAN's forces.



* RewardedAsATraitorDeserves: Is converted into another one of Shodan's cyborgs after selling out the remaining humans on the ship

ship.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Had SHODAN hacked to get an edge in cut-throat corporate politics. Ended up nearly causing the mass genocide of the human race.




to:

* HeroicWillpower: [[spoiler: Although he was The Many's willing puppet for most of the outbreak, he eventually managed to overcome The Many's control despite being one of the first people infected by the Many and thus under its control for the longest period of time. Korenchkin, in contrast, ends up fully mutating into a Psi Reaver at around the same point that Diego breaks free.]]


Added DiffLines:

* BigBadWannabe: Korenchkin doesn't run Earth, but (thanks to all the money from his criminal empire) he owns an awful lot of it. Yet despite all that he quickly becomes just another pawn of The Many upon coming in contact with them.
* ClimaxBoss: He's the first Psi Reaver encountered in the game, and fought as a "boss fight" as the player is in the process of escaping the Von Braun.
* {{Expy}}: Extremely similar to Edward Diego, being a CorruptCorporateExecutive whose poorly thought-out attempt to grab profit and glory ends up getting him turned into TheDragon of an EldritchAbomination.
