* LeeroyJenkins: He's uncontrollable in combat, and will charge a fully defended cruiser with all flack guns firing with ten bandits on his six and won't stop until they, or he, are dead. The only time he obeys any orders other than "break and attack" is in the final mission set of ''Wing Commander III''.

One of the game manuals suggests the best tactic when using him as a wingman is to use him like a ''hand grenade''. Set him loose on the bad guys, then sweep in after to clean up the mess.

* SecondLove: Angel is his first but [[spoiler: after her death]], he can take up with Angel or Rachel in ''Wing Commander 3.'' He, canonically, chooses to hook up with Rachel and they get married in the novels [[spoiler: but she leaves him before the events of ''Wing Commander 4'']]

This list is alphabetical, but it's appropriate that Blair be its first entry, as he is the PlayerCharacter for most of the franchise's entries and one of its most central figures overall. Heroic, earnest and [[HelloInsertNameHere originally nameless]], he was portrayed by Freddie Prinze Jr. in TheMovie, and by MarkHamill in the later games and the animated series.

* MajorlyAwesome: Mostly subverted. Maniac holds the rank of Major, but his {{Manchild}} tendencies and erratic flying have prevented him from advancing any further. Still, he ''is'' almost as good as his ego.

* BigBad: Of ''IV''.All of the attacks to which Blair is responding in ''IV'' are ultimately arranged by Tolwyn as part of a plot to manipulate the Confederation and the Union of Border Worlds into a conflict.

* HiddenDepths: He's genuinely rattled by [[spoiler: Vagabound's]] death, and surprisingly points out that certain actions that you can take in ''Wing Commander IV'' might not be entirely moral.

** Similarly in ''Prophecy'' he is shown genuinely disturbed when several of his wingmen end up getting killed when they emulate his reckless style, and he voluntarily steps down from wing commander position.

* DefectorFromDecadence: [[spoiler: In ''Wing Commander 4'' when he joins the Border worlds.]]



* DefectorFromDecadence: [[spoiler: Surprisingly, joins the Border Worlds against the Confederation. It's implied, albeit understated, that this is partially due to DudeWheresMyRespect.]]
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Points out, repeatedly, his accomplishments rival everyone but Blair's but he's only a Major. This is due to his attitude, glory-seeking, and disobedience of orders which would have gotten him kicked out if not for his achievements.



* MilitaryMaverick: He's a Film/DirtyHarry-style {{Deconstruction}}, with similar fatality rates among his wingmen and dazzled worshipers. He's so irresponsible he never keeps any promotions past Major.
