to:

* WrongInsultOffence: Pisha is a rare vampire who has to consume human flesh, which makes her pretty off-putting even to a regular vampire. A Malkavian player character might [[TheNicknamer nickname]] her "Black Widow", in which case she takes no offense but explains how "Mantis" would be a better pejorative. As a FullyEmbracedFiend well into her third century of unlife, she's worked out the existential angst long ago.

Added DiffLines:

** Also the fact that he was a pirate. See FridgBrilliance .


Added DiffLines:

* FridgeBrilliance: He knows a thing or two about explosives, used to be a pirate, doesn't mind solving problems with excessive violence. [[spoiler: You find the McGuffin on a ship which had all it's crew slaughtered at sea, it seems to have been opened, and the ending is what it is.]]

** With the latest unofficial patch you can get one legitimately.



* MultipleChoicePast: With the Unofficial Patch, you're given a choice of backgrounds at character creation which reflect into various changes in your stats. Each clan has about six to eight different backgrounds which are related to the clan's strengths and weaknesses. In game, you learn that whoever the PC was, they knew how to pick locks and [[spoiler: they had a family friend who ends up looking for them]].



* InSeriesNickname: The Malkavian calls him "Nasty Dude", which s/he probably picked up from Knox (or "Your Nastiness" or "[[ShoutOut Your]] [[Film/TheBigLebowski Dudeness]]"). Installing the unofficial patch re-adds a DummiedOut line where he threatens to tan your hide for it before realizing he's talking to a Malkavian and then letting it drop.

* OptionalSexualEncounter: With Jeanette. [[spoiler:It requires to give her the necklace from the haunted house (instead of to Therese) and make her "kill" her sister. The Unofficial Patch instead bases it on RelationshipValues.]]

* BigBad: Considering that he's the boss of the Sabbat in Los Angeles, he may qualify. [[spoiler: Played with. Foiling his plans is an important plot of the endgame, but [[BiggerBad the main antagonists]] prove to be the BigBadDuumvirate of [=LaCroix=] and Ming Xiao, and the player can ally with Andrei in the unofficial patch.]]

** TheSmurfettePrinciple: Said elite mooks may or may not be female, depending on which version of the Unofficial Patch you have.



* KatanasAreJustBetter: Notably, it can't be picked up after he dies. The Unofficial patch changes this, but it also makes the weapon a [[{{Nerf}} Shin Gunto instead]].

** DiscOneNuke: If you installed the ''Unofficial Patch'', you'll be able to pick up his crossbow and his Shin Gunto (a katana with weaker stats) after his demise. So you'll gain those items ''way before'' you'll supposed to gain them, though the crossbow has limited ammunition and the Shin Gunto is much weaker than, say the Fire Axe.



* TraumaCongaLine: Orphaned as a teenager, near-fatally hit by a car... and that's ''before'' she meets the player. Having her mortal injuries healed by a vampire and then put under said vampire's protection might seem like a reprieve, but ultimately, the player has to choose between [[spoiler:dismissing her from your service, breaking her heart and sending her to meet an unknown fate]] or [[spoiler:keeping her close, only to have her StuffedIntoTheFridge by the Sabbat as a result]]. The unofficial patch provides a somewhat happier alternative by [[spoiler:keeping her but ordering her to stay indoor, thus preventing her murder by the Sabbat]].

* BigDamnHeroes: If you help her with her quest and she survives, she will appear in the Golden Temple and help you deal with the Kuei-jin in the Unofficial Patch.



* OddFriendship: Downplayed in that you don't have quite enough interaction with her to form a particularly strong form of bound, but if you help her in her quest to find Zygaena, she comes to respect you enough that she will wish you well, and, with the Unofficial Patch, gladly fight alongside you a second time against the Kuei-Jin. When you first meet her, this actually gets lampshaded by her pointing out how strange it is for a hunter like her to casually chat with one of the very beings she is supposed to slay.

* TheStoner: Implied. He's got the typical stoner drawl. The ''Unofficial Patch'' re-adds a side quest to get him a fix from the Santa Monica Clinic.

* DiscOneNuke: The ''Unofficial Patch'' allows to find the killer's axe hidden in one of the rooms, which is very powerful. This weapon can normally not be acquired before Dowtown (Fat Larry sells them).

* KarmicDeath: One way to end the "A Bounty for the Hunter" quest involves this. [[spoiler:If you have the "Replanting a Lily" quest enabled when you meet him, with a high enough persuasion level you are able to convince him to go visiting the hospital morgue and to look for Vandal as a guide. It has the double interest of ending the search for Carson without a fight, while giving Vandal another blood source ''without losing Humanity''.]]

Added DiffLines:

* InTheHood: The male Gangrel's heaviest armor has one, and it's always up.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's a little ''too'' dismissive, but otherwise is a pretty chill guy and one of the only vampires in the game who seems to function like a relatively normal person.

* DarkSecret: Three of the most promising members of the family have secrets that would jeopardize their chances of being Embraced; Mira is HIV-positive as a result of a homosexual dalliance, Adam's business has just gone bankrupt, and Christopher's mother had an affair that might [[MamasBabyPapasMaybe put his parentage into question]]. All three are prepared to pay handsomely for unveiling the secrets of the other two.

* TokenGoodTeammate: Nadia is a shy, gentle girl that tries to keep you safe in the crypt and whose only real fault is being a NightmareFetishist. Compared to the rest of her BigScrewedUpFamily, she's practically a saint.

* ArmoredClosetGay: Downplayed with Nadia. [[AmbiguouslyBi Regardless of gender]], having a high enough seduction results in her being flustered and stammering when you first talk to her. Just don't try your luck with her if your PC is female.

* DrivenToSuicide: Reveal Adam's secret to the family, and he'll brokenly say he might as well hang himself now.
* ForeignLanguageTirade: Piss off Mira (either by hitting on her as a female PC or revealing her DarkSecret to the others) and she'll curse you out in Italian.
* GetBackHereBoss: Bruno has Celerity, and makes good use of it to attack you from a distance.



* TheDreaded: Most vampires typically avoid attracting their attention as much as possible, and only confront them as a last resort. When finding out some of them are waiting for him at the entry of the Asphole, Ash genuinely seems convinced he has no chance of getting out alive until your offer him your help.
