Added DiffLines:

* EarthThatUsedToBeBetter: The homeworld of humanity has been through some rough times, including major wars. While it is by no means a shambles, it has definitely been surpassed in terms of interstellar influence by many of its colonies. Thus Earth is a contradiction in that it possesses a powerful sense of historical significance for all of humankind, but its strategic importance is comparatively low.

** The real icing on the cake is the fact that the dowries will make all ''109'' of them atractive marriage prospects even if Barrayar's demographic trends revert to something more balanced. This means Count Vormuir will almost certainly have to pay for each and every one of his transgressions.

* LesCollaborateurs: Komarrans in Barrayaran service. More sympathetic than most, particularly [[BadassBureaucrat Duv Galeni]]. Also, the Komarrans to the Cetagandans during the Barrayaran Occupation, at least in Barrayar's view.

* [[LesCollaborateurs Les Collaborateurs Descendant]]: It is believed that his Cetagandan ancestry came not from rape but from an affair with a Ghem-soldier, either because of mutual loneliness or because of an exchange of protection for sex or both.

* TheWrongfulHeirToTheThrone: He was a general from a cadet branch of the imperial family who removed Yuri when he became more than even Barrayar could tolerate.

tolerate. It's implied that as a direct great-grandson of Dorca (if through a female line), Aral technically had a better dynastic claim on a throne than Ezar, though being ''[[ChildSoldier eleven]]'' at the time he wasn't considered the most fittting.



%%* TheExtremistWasRight

to:

%%* TheExtremistWasRight* TheExtremistWasRight: His methods in unifying Barrayar were pretty much exactly as extreme as they get, but they ''did'' left a much more stable society, and without him the Cetagandans would definitely have a field day insted of the murderous LaResistance they've encountered.



* LongDeadBadass: You'd think so but this trope is actually subverted since Barrayar's local history isn't all that long.

* LongDeadBadass: You'd think so but this trope is actually subverted since Barrayar's local history isn't all that long. In fact, Aral is just his great-grandson, and there are probably people on Barrayar who still remember him personally.



* EvilUncle: To Aral's mother Olivia Vorbarra/Vorkosigan, and as extension an Evil Great-Uncle to Aral himself.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: After Dorca's death, ''he'' became the face of the LaResistance fighting the Cetagandans, and it screwed him hugely.



%%* RebelLeader

%%* RebelLeader * RebelLeader: Of LaResistance fighting the Centagandan invaders.

%%* RebelLeader* RebelLeader: Similar to his brother Yuri he was the other face of Barrayaran Resistance, only for the wider Galactic community. Probably this was what let him to remain a little more sane afterwards.

Added DiffLines:

* ReluctantRuler: Invoked by Emperor Ezar when selected to become Regent for Gregor and hold absolute power in the boy's name until adulthood. Not only does Aral take his word of honor very seriously, but he is the one man Ezar is absolutely certain ''does not '''want''''' the Imperium.
