Added DiffLines:

* BadassCrew: The fact that they've been able to essentially conquer most of a continent in only a couple of years is a testament to this, and they're no slouches on the battlefield either. Only half of the group (Tarquin, Laurin, and Miron) is needed to [[CurbStompBattle curb stomp]] the entire Order without even breaking a sweat.


Added DiffLines:

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Between pulling strings of (somewhat) legitimate organizations behind the scenes, an emphasis on putting business before pleasure, and keeping as few people in the loop as possible, everything about the Legion carries heavy undertones of TheMafia. It's cemented by Laurin referring to the group as "this thing we do", similar to how Mafia members in RealLife refer to the organization as "our thing".


Added DiffLines:

* NoNonsenseNemesis: They don't bother with speeches or overly complicated plans like most of the Order's other antagonists, which is a major contributor to why they're so much more dangerous than most of said antagonists. If they want somebody dead, it gets done.

* TheBadGuyWins: Tarquin figures that he has to keep winning until a hero comes along to kill him, and then he will just become a legend.

* TheBadGuyWins: Tarquin figures that he has to keep winning until a hero comes along to kill him, and then he will just become a legend. This appears to have been subverted with his actual defeat, which consists of being [[spoiler:dumped off an airship and abandoned in a desert, disregarded as an unimportant distraction from the main plot, which [[{{Pride}} is utterly unbearable for him.]]]]

* VillainousFriendship: Aside from the Order itself, the Vector Legion appears to be the most cohesive group seen so far. This is because they aren't a [[DysfunctionJunction gang of petty and vindictive bullies with chips on their shoulders]] (like the Linear Guild) nor are they [[WeAREStrugglingTogether a group of individually powerful adventurers that hate each other's guts]] (like the Order of the Scribble), nor are they run by an insane lich whose chief lieutenant [[TheStarscream is subverting him at every turn]] and [[spoiler:[[HeKnowsTooMuch is very thorough in cutting off loose ends.]]]] While the Legion all have their own agendas, they have rules in place to ensure these agendas don't lead to too much internal strife.

Added DiffLines:

* DespotismJustifiesTheMeans: An interesting version. He likes having power, sure. But he mostly wants to be a [[EvilOverlord despot]] because he thinks it's what [[WrongGenreSavvy he]] is ''supposed'' to do.

* HiddenDepths: At first he seems AffablyEvil and then FauxAffablyEvil but still competent and pragmatic in contrast to Nale, but his teammates and reaction to the death of Malack and Nale hints at being a megalomaniac control freak who absolutely cannot stand the idea that the world doesn't revolve around him. Rule from the shadows, sure. Be overshadowed by more important events? Intolerable.
