* TheAtoner: This is mostly her character arc after she [[spoiler: joins the Wards. While she has some difficulty changing her attitude and her methods, she claims to want to honestly change.]]
** She arguably becomes this even sooner, when she finds out that the bank job was a diversion to enable [[spoiler: Coil to kidnap Dinah Alcott.]]

* SecretlyWealthy: [[spoiler:The Livseys]] are apparently well-to-do (although, as a supervillain, Tattletale isn't exactly pinched for funds).

* SecretlyWealthy: [[spoiler:The Livseys]] are apparently well-to-do (although, as a supervillain, Tattletale isn't exactly pinched for funds). [[spoiler:It turns out that she's been embezzling from Coil and skimming from the Undersiders' jobs for him to the point where, when he turns on the Undersiders, she's able to outbid him for the loyalty of most of his mercenaries.]]



* TheSmartGuy: Tattletale explicitly describes her role in the group as "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operations_(military_staff) Ops]]" (although she [[DoingResearch does a lot of intelligence work]] as well). She goes in the field rather than simply acting as MissionControl because, first, Bitch insisted that everyone fight when Tattletale originally joined the team, and second, firsthand observation enhances what she can do with her power.

[[spoiler:Also third, it lets her skim additional proceeds from jobs like the bank robbery, where she hacked the CEO's computer while the other Undersiders were collecting the ready cash.]]

* AlphaBitch: Tattletale/Lisa is explicitly beautiful and has [[ManipulativeBastard manipulation]] as a superpower. However despite her very bitchy tendencies towards the world at large she lacks any [[GirlPosse crowd]] to be in with and is a loyal friend to [[SociallyAwkwardHero Taylor]] from their first meeting. What little is known of her [[DarkAndTroubledPast backstory]] would suggest that she probably used to be either this played straight, or something similar before [[spoiler:her brother's suicide triggered her superpower and drove her to flee her wealthy home.]]

* NotGoodWithPeople: [[spoiler:Bitch's CanineCompanion HulkingOut powers affect her mind]] so that she thinks and perceives social interactions like a [[spoiler:dog instead of a human]]. This also makes her unable to grasp tone, expressions and several other key aspects of human interaction. She is very good with dogs, but with humans she is [[JerkAss less so]]. [[ViolenceIsTheOnlyOption than]] [[TechnicalPacifist friendly]]. Taylor might be the closest thing to a friend she has ever had.

A sixteen year old kid, pretty, with black curls and light blue eyes. The son of Niko Vasil i.e. Heartbreaker, a major supervillain in Montreal, who escaped his father, changed his name and tactics, and joined the Undersiders. He carries a scepter with a taser in it as his hand-to-hand weapon, but his power allows him to manipulate the bodies of other people, causing muscle cramps which force people to trip or stumble, a subset of his ''actual'' ability with full-scale {{People Puppet|s}}ry. Is amiable but sociopathic, probably as a consequence of his upbringing.

According to Weld in Queen 18.3 -- http://parahumans.wordpress.com/2013/01/26/queen-18-3/ -- Skitter is rated Thinker 1 "[b]ecause [her] bugs let [her] sense things to the point that [she] might be a short-range clairvoyant." In Cell 22.1 -- http://parahumans.wordpress.com/2013/05/04/cell-22-1/ -- we learn from the Deputy Director that "She's on record as a master eight, thinker one. The thinker classification is key here: ex-Director Piggot noted Skitter can see through her bugs' eyes."

* EleventhHourSuperpower: Invoked. Taylor has Panacea [[spoiler:tamper with her brain to try to remove the restrictions on her power, which cuts down her range and fine control, but allows her power to effect everything instead of being limited to bugs.]]

mount, though effectively it's more akin to an organic flying bike.
