* HappilyMarried: Surprisingly enough, there was a time Eugene was this with Sara. As explained above in AttentionDeficitOohShiny, back when he was courting Sara, he devoted himself 100% to being a good boyfriend and later husband. This is why she doesn't want Roy to speak ill of him. However, Eugene's nature means he eventually became 100% devoted to something else, but by that point, he already had a family and couldn't eactly leave them. "Till death do you part," indeed.

* [[UnderstandingBoyfriend UnderstandingWife]]: A variation. She has Eugene figured out better than anyone from what it looks like. She explained to Roy about Eugene's [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny intense, but shifting focus]] and how it factored into their marriage, while also keeping Roy from badmouthing Eugene. She does somewhat lampshade it, pointing out she was married to him for 30 years and hoped to gain some insight on Eugene, all with a rather snarky and confident look on her face.

* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: A more seirous example than what one would believe. His wife Sara figures that this is Eugene's FatalFlaw. Whenenver Eugene sets out a goal, he pursues it with intense determination. Whether it was slaying Xylon, creating new spells or courting Sara, he pursued it devotedly. Sara herself points out that back when his goal was settling down with her, [[HappilyMarried their relationship was a very happy one.]] Unfortunately, he eventually waivers from the goal in pursuit of another one, failing to follow through on any of his "projects." [[RealityEnsues Of course this leads to large consequences where he is in a position he cannot leave, such as unable to leave his family]] and the blood oath he gave to destory Xykon preventing him entering the LawfulGood heaven. Now that he's dead, the heavenly forces are more or less forcing him to finish what he has to do, making him bitter and unhappy (well, more than usual.)

* AccidentalMurder: Of Eric, who died in the process of his research.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Sara diagnoses this as the source of most of his problems. He's a very focused guy, and when he wants something he gives it his all, whether it's avenging his master, being a good husband and father, or just inventing new spells. But he gets bored easily, failing to follow through on any of his "projects" in anything but a half-assed kind of way, and the one he ''can't'' just abandon, like his family or, after his death, his oath to destroy Xykon, quickly leave him resentful and unhappy.

* CharacterAlignment: [[invoked]] His nominal alignment is LawfulGood, but this is subject to some discussion in-universe. He is currently waiting for a member of his family to fulfill the BloodOath he made years ago to slay Xykon; until that time, he is stuck in a limbo-like plane of existence where the deceased go to see which afterlife they are suited for. Based on Roy's judgement, it is implied that he is not really Lawful Good, or rather that he has failed to live up to the responsibilities of his alignment, and had not truly been Lawful Good for several years. The Prequel comic seems to have indicated that he would have been allowed in at the time of his death, but his impatience and inability to do anything has since resulted in an alignment shift. In fact, the most recent comics show that he's perfectly willing to let the world be destroyed since Xykon would be destroyed with it and that would technically fulfill his oath.

* PassingTheTorch: Julio decides to hit the road and visit the Outer Planes, but not before giving his Chaos Sabre and control of the Mechane to Elan for the last leg of the Order's journey. This is [[PlayedForLaughs hilariously done]] since the letter that he left to Elan has him doing the voice-over... with him standing right beside Elan.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: His self-induced absence from the ''Mechane'' is probably the single greatest factor that allows [[spoiler:Andi to become TheStarscream and perpetrate TheMutiny against Bandana, who Julio had appointed as captain in his absence]].

* DudeWheresMyReward: Considers herself to have more of a "claim" to the captaincy of the ''Mechane'' than Bandana does, on the grounds of having substantially longer service aboard the ship.



* SarcasticDevotee: Been this to Bandana ever since she was left in charge of the Mechane. She has to be constantly reminded that it's ''Captain'' Bandana now. She considers Bandana's position as Captain to be temporary experience-building, and believes that she has more of a claim to the ship if Julio's retired for real.

[[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots1051.html According to Julio]] (as relayed by the crew), the ''Mechane''[='=]s nick-of-time arrival requires a good-faith effort at heroism - which means it can't be exploited to run away from a fight.
