* AntiVillain: She was always [[AffablyEvil more pleasant]] than the rest of Linear Guild and only worked with them because [[MyMasterRightOrWrong her god told her to]]. [[spoiler: Hilgya's more recent appearance had her team up with The Order and gave her some excuses for serving Loki, which in hindsight makes her even more sympathetic.]]
* ApologeticAttacker: Or rather, she apologized to Durkon before ''Sabine'' attacked him.
* ArrangedMarriage: In her backstory, she was assigned a husband, as is typical among dwarves. She couldn't stand it so she tried to poison him.

]] As she explains, being carried by a high-level cleric who can field powerful defensive magic is a pretty safe place for a child.
* BestServedCold: After making her bones as an adventurer, she returns to dwarven lands to [[spoiler:bankrupt her entire clan in vengeance for her forced marriage, divorce her husband, and settle in as a powerful Cleric of Loki]].

* UnreliableExpositor: Her descriptions of her relationships are very inaccurate, and always paint the man in a negative light at odds with their actual personalities. For instance, her description of Durkon as "unscrupulous" and as a man who would "embrace ... a descent into unnatural depravity" is so absurdly wrong that even Belkar wonders aloud if she's not describing someone else with the same name. Remember: ''she'' seduced ''him'', and he only rejected her upon learning information about her he did not previously know.

* SelfServingMemory: The way she describes her marriage, her husband was a spirit-breaking jerk when he actually a NiceGuy who tried to be a loving husband. ([[spoiler:Many, many strips later, her description of Durkon and their relationship]]) shows that her mind and memory exist solely to paint her and her actions in the best light possible while doing the opposite for anyone she doesn't care for. The only exception is apologizing to Elan for getting him stabbed by Nale.

So when Elan decides to spare his life, he's shocked, and when Roy and Julia have a AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther moment right in front of him, he's confused.
