Added DiffLines:

* TragicVillain: The lizard henchman of the first volume. Most of his background implies he was just a guy from the ghetto who got hired to be a valet for a man he despised. Then he saw a gruesome murder that gave him finally a chance to blackmail himself a cozy life, which Blacksad seems to have planned that too (the henchman never realized Blacksad's motives to investigate). He ends up lamenting that while his boss was a SoreLoser, himself was just a loser.
