* LovableAlphaBitch: Despite the above and similarities to her abusers Taylor certainly thinks so. [[spoiler:Taylor isn't wrong, at any rate-Lisa can be genuinely ruthless when scared or insulted, but the very reason she made the offer of membership to Taylor is largely out of the kindness of her heart and genuine desire to avoid anyone else suffering through her tragedy.]]

* PetTheDog: [[spoiler:Her entire relationship with Taylor is this, ignoring her wannabe ReverseMole status purely out of the desire to be the friend Taylor desperately needed to quell her suicidal impulses.]]

* EarnYourFun: Cassie solidly believes in the NintendoHard approach to life. Probably because it often has been beyond brutal for her. However, she seems to have found both her niche and her fun with Rachael and the dogs.

* BookDumb: Not to the extant of Rachel but he's also lacking in the formal education department and notes his math skills are rather poor multiple times in addition to not being that good at strategizing.
* BrilliantButLazy: Regent is far, far smarter than her looks, but like most sociopaths he's rather lacking in motivation and isn't much for long-term planning. The nature of his [[PeoplePuppets power]] adds another dimension to this as both Regent and his allies are pretty reluctant to use it outside of [[GodzillaThreshold desperate situations]] or with [[PayEvilUntoEvil very bad people]], and over-using it would likely result in a kill order on him. Regent is stuck being a bit of an underachiever if he doesn't want to be a monster like his father.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Amoral to the point of dangerous he may be, but Alec does have standards that prevent him becoming an absolute monster. Namely "be classy and successful with minimum effort, but don't be [[StupidEvil Dad]] to get there". His subdued, yet disgusted and horrified reaction to Cheri's life choices is a case in point.

* LackOfEmpathy: He may well have had it, once, as he certainly is aware that something's missing. But, being raised in Heartbreaker's compound sandblasted it to near-extinction. The best he can manage is to approximate the appropriate behaviour... after thinking through how puppets of his generally feel. Which actually puts him closer to normal without outside help than most of his family, scarily enough.
