* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Rather then manipulate Luke through ObviouslyEvil means, he spends years getting Luke to trust him. [[spoiler: He does the same to Asch, ensuring their loyalty, though Asch catches on.]]

* BrokenAce: Jade is so famous, so skilled, so renowned, so respected and so damn intelligent that more or less everybody who isn't a villain ([[WorthyOpponent and even then, some of those too]]) treat him with respect... None of which he's happy about. Why? [[spoiler:Because he's ''not'' the god of a man people seem to think he is. He's a sociopathic, borderline MadScientist whose lack of emotional connection to the world and the people in it just makes their lives worse... and he's GenreSavvy enough to ''know it''. As the story goes on, he seems to develop envy towards Luke; as he's able to overcome his flaws and develop true compassion for the lives of others whereas Jade struggles with very similar issues up to and beyond the game's end.]]

* BadassPrincess: She's an archer that has experienced war before the story began. In terms of cutscenes alone, if one pays attention, during cutscenes where fights take place, ''she's nearly always the first one to get a hit in''. Seriously, Luke would have DIED had she not fired on Largo, and would have died even earlier if she hadn't, while TURNING, expertly SNIPED Sync out of a tree. She gives cover fire when the group is ambushed by Legretta, and certainly gets a LOT farther than the others in doing any real counterattack. Ironically, that girl who everyone but Jade and Luke have doubts letting into their group is ''also the one who most often saves their collective asses.''

* AntiVillain: Type II ({{Woobie}} Anti-Villain) [[spoiler: He's working towards Van's EvilPlan because the Score took his family away from him. The true Princess Natalie was stillborn so Largo's mother-in-law gave her granddaughter to the queen as a replacement. His wife committed suicide out of grief.]]

* ManipulativeBastard: He's no fighter. The major problems he causes for the protagonists and the world at large are all based on manipulation of others. For instance, he starts a war and disinherits Natalie based on words alone. [[http://community.livejournal.com/talesoftheabyss/859890.html#cutid1 Supplementary material.]]

** This becomes his primary bane in his solo arena battles that while he's got combos, they don't do much his best damage comes from spells, which he barely has time to do (his fastest spell is Photon). In compensation, he's the only character to receive a costume upon winning his solo arena
