* NotSoDifferent: His private life turned out to be not dissimilar from Mulder's. Sure, he's got unlimited reach (screw you, Bills!), but he can't use it to live openly or extravagantly, so he goes home to his cruddy apartment (with no wife or kids to greet him) and watches b-movies.

* AgentMulder: She's a believer much like Mulder himself. Being the only person who truly believed in his theories (before Scully came around, anyway) was the major contributory factor for their partnership and romantic relationship back in the day. In the present, she's more than willing to use this status as leverage to wedge her way back into Mulder's life.
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: Tall and brunette, and while not quite as emotionally defensive as Scully, she definitely has an aloof air about her.



* NewOldFlame: For Mulder.

to:

* NewOldFlame: For Mulder. The "new" part largely being on her end, as Mulder's romantic feelings for her have clearly waned in the time they've been apart.



* RedemptionEqualsDeath

to:

* RedemptionEqualsDeathRedemptionEqualsDeath: She's initially compliant in the Syndicate exploiting Mulder's brain condition during the "Sixth Extinction" story arc, [[spoiler: but ultimately can't go through with it, and gives Scully the tools she needs to save Mulder from the Cigarette-Smoking Man, who in turn has Diana assassinated for her betrayal.]]

!!Greg Pincus (John Apicella)

* BigCreepyCrawlies: What he actually is.

* NightOfTheLivingMooks: His m/o.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: His bite converts victims to undead slaves that appear perfectly normal to those affected by his glamour, but are very visibly dead to the aware.
* TheVirus: Injects victims with some sort of toxin that kills and reanimates them and brings them under his thrall.
