* ShellShockedVeteran



* NeverMyFault: Even after everything that's happened, he refuses to even consider himself or his former administration responsible for ignoring the zombie threat until it was too late and contributing to the Great Panic.



* ForcedToWatch: He could only watch from the sky during the Great Panic, watching people try desperately to get away, unaware they were only prolonging the inevitable, as they were merely headed to another infested zone.



* ArmorIsUseless: One of his many complaints about Yonkers was the MOPP 4 protective gear the rank and file soldiers were wearing, several layers of rubber, charcoal, and heavy body armor, on one of the hottest days of the year, while letting the many reporters and superiors wear normal clothing.

* ArmorIsUseless: One of his many complaints about Yonkers was the MOPP 4 protective gear the rank and file soldiers were wearing, several layers of rubber, charcoal, and heavy body armor, on one of the hottest days of the year, while letting the many reporters and superiors wear normal clothing. Averted with the later battle dress uniforms, which actually were effective at preventing infection.



* ShellShockedVeteran: Years after the war has ended, he is still haunted by what he witnessed during the war, from his fellow soldiers being eaten alive to the government incompetence that caused so many senseless deaths.

* ShellShockedVeteran: Years after the war has ended, he is still haunted by what he witnessed during the war, from his fellow soldiers being eaten alive to the government incompetence that caused so many senseless deaths. According to his unit's psychologist, who he sees regularly, his reactions are still fairly healthy.


Added DiffLines:

* CassandraTruth: People don't believe him when he tells this story. Not that General Raj-Singh was there, but that Khan himself was the last person who saw him alive.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys


Added DiffLines:

* NoInsideVoice: "I started my career trading on the floor of the NYSE, so I can yell as hard and long as any professional drill sergeant."


Added DiffLines:

* CloudCuckooLander: He admits to being an oddball, and tells a tree that it's doing a good job.


Added DiffLines:

* NoInsideVoice


Added DiffLines:

* AngryBlackMan: Moreso in the audiobook, he didn't take kindly to CondescendingKindness regarding his disability.


Added DiffLines:

* CoolOldGuy


Added DiffLines:

* IgnorantOfTheirOwnIgnorance: Despite his obsessive collecting of fact and statistics relating to the zombie war, he didn't actually process what the data meant. It wasn't until he was cut off from the internet and dealing with the threat first hand that he realized how much he didn't know about anything beyond his computer, and vow to change for the better.


Added DiffLines:

* AntiMutiny: "We were not traitors" is his opening statement. The sub's captain went rogue because they realized the dangers of relying on WeHaveReserves against a zombie attack.
* NumberTwo: The XO of the Chinese Sub that went rogue during the war.


Added DiffLines:

* BecameTheirOwnAntithesis: A positive example, Darnell admits toward the end that he used to hate dogs with a passion until he had to listen to a nearby pet stores puppies die slowly after the owner ran off. He then became a dedicated handler to a HeroicDog, and now runs a farm for retired military dogs and dotes on his now elderly partner.
* HeroicDog: A retired K9 handler, he describes the role dogs had during the war.
* OldDog: his former partner, a dachshund mix, Maisie, makes an appearance during the interview, now retired and elderly. Darnell dotes on her.


Added DiffLines:

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefullness: Non-lethal version; while he wasn't killed, he was exiled to a remote village deep in Siberia once the Russian government established itself and no longer needed him as a figurehead. The other Russian POV character, Maria Zhuganova, calls him the only person in Russia who actually believes in Russia's religious epiphany.

** SanityStrengthening: Despite the fact that the voice may have been conjured from Christina's mind due to stress, the voice is positive and encouraging. At times when she feels hopeless, the voice reminds her to only think about what she needs to do next and actively pushes her to keep going and survive. It essentially keeps her from breaking under the pressure from the sever and dangerous circumstances surrounding her escape from zombie infested territories.

* BeneathTheMask: Xolelwa Azania believed that Redeker instead of being heartless, felt too much and that distancing himself from emotion was the only way he could protect himself in a cruel world. [[spoiler: Considering the fact that Xolelwa Azania is really the split personality of Paul Redeker this insight has a helluva lot of weight to it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: Xolelwa Azania? Azania is the ancient Greek name for southern Africa, and many black nationalists believe that the country should be renamed thus. Google Translate gives myriad answers for "Xolelwa"; In Zulu/Xhosa/etc it can mean "Discarded", "Clemency", "Downloaded", "Forgiven"... [[spoiler:All of them hit the nail on the head pretty hard considering that he's actually what's left of Redeker when ''Nelson Mandela'' embraced him and told everyone present his plan would save the country, both black and white]].

* MyCountryRightOrWrong: She considers her role as BabyFactory her duty, and does not question orders any more.

* MyCountryRightOrWrong: She considers her role as BabyFactory her duty, and does not question orders any more. (She ''does'' snark a lot about the government, past and present; because they badly need her uterus, they won't do anything to her.)

*AccidentalAimingSkills: Fernando Oliveira credits his killing of zombie Herr Mueller to this. He bought a large and showy Desert Eagle purely for intimidation and never practiced with it; he was aiming for the chest but was unprepared for the recoil. Luckily for him and everybody else present, his shot went wild and by pure chance hit Mueller in the head.
* DrJerk
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Slaps one of his nurses who is crying about his zombie patient. Later gets slapped by his receptionist after shooting said zombie patient.
* HookersAndBlow: "I did what any good doctor should do when his patient is suffering, I hit the town."
