* BigBadWannabe: Lono is a ruthless sociopath and [[GeniusBruiser much smarter than he looks]], and sets himself up as head of a third faction largely independent from both the Minutemen and Trust. However, on a board where the other players include [[TheChessmaster Philip Graves]] and [[DiabolicalMastermind Augustus Medici]], "smarter than you look" simply doesn't cut it.
