!!Elle
* ArtificialHuman: A woman of flesh and blood created Jackie using the Darkness power to be his companion.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:Despite supposedly dying while giving birth to a pure darkness being, she is revealed to have recovered]].
* CuteMonsterGirl: She is the same kind of being as the Darklings, i.e. the shadow beings summoned by Jackie, except she is human looking and more attractive.
* DeathByChildbirth: [[spoiler:Elle becomes pregnant with Jackie's son, a being of pure, concentrated darkness, whose birth tears her apart. Subverted when its revealed she had survived]].
* MsFanservice: Justified: Elle serves this role InUniverse because Jackie can't have sex with normal woman without risking impregnating them and himself dying, so he creates a courtesan for himself to curb his flesh desires.
* PsychopathicManchild: Combine the fact Elle has a consistently childish mindset (an adult-looking ArtificialHuman won't necessarily act mature) and fact she is a humanoid being created out of primordial darkness with murderous impulses and you have this trope).

* MsFanservice: Her design is generally pretty skimpy. Even when she wears something that covers her completely, it tends to be extremely form-fitting.

to:

* MsFanservice: Her design For a primordial force of light that could easily count as an EldritchAbomination in her own right, her female host turns into this trope when taken over by the Angelus. For instance the old and invalid Lauren Franchetti is generally pretty skimpy.rejuvenated into a smoking hot bombshell when she becomes the second host. Even when she wears something that covers her completely, it tends to be extremely form-fitting.



* KickTheDog: Killed his wife's lover with a blow torch by slow torture.

to:

* KickTheDog: Killed his wife's lover with a blow torch by slow torture. He also [[spoiler:murders Jenny, films her death and sends the tape to Jackie]].



* VillainousIncest: At one point, he kisses his daughter in the lips. While she is ''catatonic no less''.



* WouldHurtAChild: He refers to himself Frankie "Kill the children too" Franchetti.

to:

* WouldHitAGirl: Obviously, to be expected from a psychotic mobster like him. Not to mention he is the one to personally gun down [[spoiler:Jenny]].
* WouldHurtAChild: He One of his nicknames which he actually refers to himself is Frankie "Kill the children too" Franchetti.


Added DiffLines:

* ObfuscatingDisability: While she does get genuinely catatonic because of Jackie's actions, she is healed thanks to the Madgalena, but spends a couple of time faking it.

* DomesticAbuse: While he didn't necessarily hit his wife, when he caught her cheating on him, he tied her up into a chair and slowly murdered her lover with a blow torch in front of her. The trauma rendered Lauren catatonic for many years.

* WouldHurtAChild: He refers to himself Frankie "Kill the children too" Franchetti.

!!Appolonia Franchetti

* FreudianExcuse: She once saw her father torturing her mother's lover to death, causing her to have a nervous breakdown.
* KickTheDog: She snaps her own cat's neck just to prove a point how she will get rid of anyone that gets in her way.
* MafiaPrincess: Desconstructed. Being the daughter of a particularly vicious mobster like Franchetti is not going to be good for a child's mental health.
* RightHandCat: Appolonia is introduced carrying a cat of high breed that she raised since she was a kitten. [[KickTheDog Appolonia promptly kills it in front of Jackie to show she means business]].



* MsFanservice: The female Angelus Warriors.

* AGodAmI: She was worshiped as a sun goddess by the Incans and the Shinto. And she claims God and Jesus are both redundant in her presence.

* BigBad

to:

* BigBadBigBad: The most common antagonist faced by Jackie when he is not fighting normal mobsters or people trying to steal or use his powers for their own ends.



* LightTheWay
* MsFanservice

to:

* LightTheWay
LightEmUp: Naturally as the incarnation of light, she has complete control over it.
* MsFanserviceLogicalWeakness: While the Darkness doesn't have power in the presence of light, the inverse is applicable to Angelus. Jackie defeats her for the first time by luring her to a dark cave, deprived of light which weakened her so much that she rapidly aged in matter of moments.
* MsFanservice: Her design is generally pretty skimpy. Even when she wears something that covers her completely, it tends to be extremely form-fitting.



* OmnicidalManiac

to:

* OmnicidalManiacOmnicidalManiac: In at least one alternate future, she managed to destroy Earth. ''Singlehandedly''.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: In the game, Paulie has his safehouse equipped with several dozen floodlights once he learns of Jackie's weaknesses.



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Even more so than Paulie; rather than just setting up some floodlights in front of his lair, he ambushes Jackie with several dozen spotlights and knocks him out with a flashbang. Then, while he's torturing Jackie, he keeps him under the beam of a floodlight at all times.
