* {{Patricide}}: ''How the Paladin Got His Scar'' reveals that, [[spoiler:not only was Shojo her lord, but also ''her adopted father'', and thus Hinjo is also legally her cousin.]]

* {{Patricide}}: ''How the Paladin Got His Scar'' reveals that, [[spoiler:not only was Shojo her lord, but also ''her adopted father'', a fact which adds a whole new layer to the dynamic between them, and thus what it meant when she killed him. This also means that Hinjo is also legally her cousin.cousin, and that she would have been a kinslayer for a second time within minutes if Roy hadn't intervened and saved Hinjo.]]



* ScarsAreForever: Despite receiving healing magic regularly, he's been tortured for so long that his body is literally CoveredInScars. Even more impressive, when O-Chul breaks out, Redcloak hits him with a Disintegrate, [[XRaySparks showing off O-Chul's skeleton]], which reveals that his skull has a scar matching the one along his temple -- meaning the cut made it went all the way to the bone. The prequel story "How the Paladin Got His Scar" would eventually reveal the origin of this scar. [[spoiler:A maddened, KnightTemplar[=/=]GeneralRipper former commander of the Sapphire Guard inflicted the wound on O-Chul when O-Chul [[SheatheYourSword found a non-violent way]] of preventing a war with the Hobgoblins that said commander was about to start.]]

* StoneWall: In contrast to someone like Miko, O-Chul rarely displays any spectacular offense, but can instead take a ridiculous amount of punishment without going down. It fits with his mission as a paladin, as he is a defender first, and never an aggressor.

* HumiliationConga: He's fired from the Sapphire Guard by his own subordinate after O-Chul tricks him into breaking one of its rules. He's told off and duly insulted by his former second-in-command, bluntly dismissed and rejected by the celestial he had summoned to help the Guard's efforts, and finally killed by his own acolyte for his misdeeds.
* {{Hypocrite}}: He advocates wiping out hobgoblin civilization entirely, brushing off the possibility of good hobgoblins dying because that can't get in the way of punishing wickedness, and essentially says that if any good hobgoblins survive this they can reflect on how this was for the best and how they can change their ways. When Gin-Jun is kicked out of the Sapphire Guard for his own actions, (violating the Paladin Code by attacking and attempting to murder an unarmed man who posed no danger to him) instead of reflecting on his own wickedness, how it must be punished, or how he can change his ways, Gin-Jun simply goes into NeverMyFault, blaming both O-Chul and his own second-in-command for his own actions.

* NeckSnap: How Miko kills him.
* NeverMyFault: When O-Chul points out that Gin-Jun's tactics will result in hobgoblins attacking Azurite villages in retaliation, Gin-Jun just says that's on the hobgoblin's heads, not his. He also blames O-Chul for him losing his place in the Sapphire Guard, even though it was Gin-Jun's own actions that caused him to be fired.
* NotSoDifferent: He acts very similar to the GeneralRipper on the hobgoblin side, to the point that they get upset over the same things and use similar ways to express that anger. O-Chul, when trying to convince the other paladins that Gin-Jun has lost his way, points this out and that Gin-Jun has more in common with a hobgoblin who is similarly eager for war than he does with those of his own people who aren't.

* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: He's a parody of this, in that PCs tend to treat NPCs, no matter how important they might be, as minor assets to be ignored when not relevant. Despite the fact that he's evidently a pretty powerful wizard, the Order completely forgets about him within seconds of reaching Cliffport.
