* TheBrute[=/=]DumbMuscle: Played with. Mutons are big, strong, heavily armored and [[GeniusBruiser well-versed in tactics]], but their Will is pathetically low, making them quite vulnerable to psionics. Then again, most alien species have very low Will, hinting to either biological vulnerability to psionics, or more likely as a method the Ethereals have instilled to make controlling them earlier. How unintelligent they exactly are is unknown; they are at the very least smart enough to understand the tactical and weapon data implanted in their brains.

** Your full roster of veterans will not join you unless you get reinforcements, which will not occur unless some security personnel die. Furthermore enemies spawn at set time periods meaning if you are too slow to kill the current wave their reinforcements will build up. Considering this the 'optimal' path to ensuring a win is to kill at least two security personnel quickly to get them replaced with stronger fighters before your overwhelmed.

* MadScientist: Downplayed: she's definitely a lot more gung-ho about [[ForScience SCIENCE!]] than [[TheProfessor Dr. Shen]], though she does insist on [[TortureTechnician personally overseeing]] [[BewareTheNiceOnes any interrogation attempts]]. [[spoiler:During the events of XCOM2's Alien Rulers DLC, she is revealed to have accidentally awakened a number of extremely powerful aliens that the Elders had sealed away as a result of her studies in xenobiology without the moderating influences of Shen and the Commander]].

* LesCollaborateurs: They welcome the alien invasion and hope to help it succeed by undermining XCOM. They then hope to rule over whatever is left of humanity once the aliens have departed.
