%%* TheCasanova

to:

%%* TheCasanova* TheCasanova: He will hit on any girl. Or any guy. Or any''thing'' for that matter. If it has a semblance of a personality, Jack will flirt with it.



* ChekovsGun: His aforementioned Hand-In-A-Jar has both saved the universe ''and'' almost doomed it. It allowed The Master to reconfigure the TARDIS into his paradox machine and effectively rule the world for an entire year. But it was also responsible for the [[ItMakesSenseInContext birth of Doctor-Donna and the Ten Clone]] effectively help defeat Davros.



* LoveableSexManiac: According to Ianto, Jack's style in bed is "innovative... bordering on the avant-garde."

to:

* LoveableSexManiac: According to Ianto, Jack's style in bed is "innovative... bordering on the avant-garde." When he's joined up with ''three Doctors'' (Ten, Doctor-Donna and the Hand Clone), he makes it clear they ''don't'' want to know [[AThreesomeIsHot what he's thinking.]]

* CameBackWrong: He's killed off then brought back with the Resurrection Glove, though he comes back particularly ''broken''. He can't heal - at all, so even a minor cut is permanent and a serious problem. He can't eat or drink or sleep, and the way he flushes out anything that he ''did'' consume is ''[[BrainBleach beyond horrifying]]'', and he also can't really feel much of anything. In dire situations, this actually makes him a veritable ''tank'' as he also can't die (again), but more often than not, he's a ridiculously SquishyWizard.

%%* JerkassFacade
%%* JerkWithAHeartOfGold

to:

%%* JerkassFacade
%%* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* {{Jerkass}}: A ''deeply'' unpleasant man. His EstablishingCharacterMoment where he attempts to gang-rape a group via an alien-pheromone pretty much sums it up. Even after undergoing some much needed CharacterDevelopment, he's still a bit too mean-spirited and cruel to count as a JerkWithAHeartOfGold. His few redeeming qualities however are worth having him around: The fact that he's damn good at his job; his fierce loyalty to the team; the fact that he ''knows'' that he's a very shitty person gives him some sense of self-control.



%%* TheLancer

to:

%%* TheLancer* TheLancer: Despite being a medic, Owen's the one usually on field-support with a gun in hand next to Jack, even after Gwen shows up as the resident ActionGirl.

Added DiffLines:

* DoNotGoGentle: Is fully aware that neither she nor Ianto have a chance against a Dalek, yet is still the first one to pick up an assault rifle without hesitation, planning to at least go out [[DyingMomentOfAwesome in a blaze of glory]].

->''"[[LawfulEvil I want you to suffer. I want your life.]] This is Cardiff. 27AD. The city will be built here, over the next 2,000 years. Your grave will be the city's foundations.

%%* RoaringRampageOfRevenge
