Added DiffLines:

* HeadInTheSandManagement: In Episode III, despite the fact that the Forceless Collective is openly waging war on the galaxy, much of the Galactic Alliance's political body is unwilling to acknowledge the Collective as a threat and are so determined to insist that they are still fighting the Valkoran Empire, despite the organization dropping all pretense of being an independent superpower. Leia points out that these particular politicians are just trying to present themselves as strongmen who are in reality, too frightened to do anything about yet another [[OutsideContextProblem unfamiliar enemy]] just a few years after the Yuuzhan Vong invasion.


Added DiffLines:

* OutsideContextProblem: ''Paranormalities'' gets its title from thriving on this trope, between the Valkoran Empire's quirky leaders to the eldritch Forceless Collective.

* ActionGirl: Grein, Hiriss Moraana, [[SamusIsAGirl R9-C4]] and Dynn Manthis, before and [[DarkActionGirl after]] she joins the Valkoran Empire.
* AffablyEvil:
** Maesterus. Others like [[FourStarBadass Admiral Marx Gravlek]], Dynn Manthis (when she joins them) and Arcidus also qualify. Subverted somewhat in that (most of) the Valkoran aren't necessarily evil.
** Gahmah Raan is this as well as LaughablyEvil, [[PunchClockVillain at least if he's working with the Valks.]]
** Surprisingly among the Forceless Collective (and for someone who was part of it since birth), Fafniros is one of the only known Archfiends with a code of honor.
** Also in the Forceless Collective, Stythanyx, who offers Zolph a chance to back out and make use of remaining days after being given a four-day death curse by the Hands.
* AllThereInTheManual: Gahmah also supplies out of story material like concept art and profiles.

* AnIcePerson:
** In addition to being able to [[MakingASplash liquefy herself]], Grein can also freeze those liquefied body parts into ice blades.
** Archfiend Cryosmn is also one if Grein is to be believed. [[TheUnfought Of course, we never see this firsthand]].
* AntiHero: Zolph Vaelor. He will only threaten or hurt people if they are damaging enough to deserve it (or if peaceful negotiations don't work), whether they are armed or not. [[FatBastard Va'Za the Hutt]] learned this the hard way... twice.



* AssholeVictim: Toydarian crimelord Girdretto gets possessed by a Forceless symbiote during the invasion of Sleheyron. [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice He is killed by Grein]] shortly after being possessed. [[DirtyCoward And he was willing to abandon his men once he was alerted to how dangerous they were]].

[[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice He is killed by Grein]] shortly after being possessed. [[DirtyCoward And he was willing to abandon his men once he was alerted to how dangerous they were]].While some Forceless-possession victims were innocent people, others not so much.



* AxCrazy:
** Doctor Thilid is a [[{{Cthulhumanoid}} Quarren]] [[MadScientist scientist]] working with the Valkoran that makes a habit of [[BrainFood eating prisoners' brains]] when she finds them no longer useful, not unlike the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Anzati]].
** Belluzub really enjoys torturing his foes as he kills them, even if it isn't exactly practical.
** [[PsychoForHire Gestroma]]. He's willing to use living creatures as bombs [[ForTheEvulz just to watch them explode]] and threatened to mount Zolph's head on his wall the next time they meet.
** PlayedForLaughs in [[HeroicComedicSociopath R9-C4's]] case. She isn't as blatant as the above characters, but she tends to be sadistically creative when killing people outside the astromech socket. And she does this as a way of [[PsychopathicManchild entertaining herself]].
** Archfiend Harphscor is about as psychotic as Belluzub.
** [[TheCaligula Masochus]] deserves special mention, as he was considered insane by even Sith standards. Notably, he takes perverse pleasure in butchering people whether he leaves them alive or not.
* BadAssNormal: Admiral Marx Gravlek, Besh Squad and later, [[spoiler: [[TookALevelInBadass Lieutenant Will Helms]]]].
* BadAssLongCoat: Zolph again. There's also Arcidus.



* HeartbrokenBadass: [[spoiler:Zolph, after Dynn's death.]]
* BadBoss:
** The Valkoran leaders mostly avert this trope, but Masochus is quite to prone to killing people to for the sake of his experiments or [[ForTheEvulz his own amusement]] (more than once in the case [[TheyKilledKennyAgain Lieutenant Helms]]).
** Belluzub also plays this straight. The first thing he does once summoned is eat and kill the acolytes who summoned him.
** Gestroma in Episode II is like this to some of the Valkoran, [[InvertedTrope despite being a mercenary working for them]]. Most notably during the Battle of Taris, he killed a Tuk'ata Fighter Tank's driver so he could use it for transportation after his Swoop bike was destroyed, and took one of the Skakoan Commandos aiding them hostage so he could use him as an unwitting suicide bomber later (when the Skakoan Commandos would only do such a thing on their own volition).



* BerserkButton: Do not threaten or kill anyone Zolph cares about. [[spoiler:For that matter, don't even try to trick him into killing those he cares about]]. Also, [[RelativeButton don't make any nasty comments about anyone dead who mattered to him]].
** Maesterus: [[spoiler:[[PapaWolf Do not threaten the lives of his descendants]], even if they are generations apart. [[HurlItIntoTheSun Belluzub took a one way trip to Krantisi's sun for this]].]]
* BigBad: Valkor.



* ButtMonkey:
** [[TheyKilledKennyAgain Private/Sergeant/Lieutenant Will Helms]]. Most of his deaths are accidents on the parts of his peers. [[ThrowTheDogABone He does get promoted twice over the course of Episode II, though]].
** While not to the same extremes as Helms, Zolph Vaelor also qualifies. The galaxy doesn't seem to respect him enough until the end of Episode I. On a not-so-funny note, let's not get into both the [[IronButtMonkey physical]] and [[HeroicBSOD psychological]] damage he receives over the course of the story.



* TheChewToy: Will Helms again.
* ClippedWingAngel: Hydrojus is hardly a threat if it isn't making any physical contact with water.



* {{Cyborg}}: [[spoiler:Admiral Gravlek became one after the Battle of Ithor, due to barely surviving the Conqueror's crashlanding.]]
* DarkIsEvil: Forceless Collective plays with this trope. Despite their dark and sometimes demonic appearance, Forceless (or more specifically, the Black Matter) aren't really on the light-dark spectrum of TheForce. They're still evil, however.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Subverted with Maesterus. He dresses like a stereotypical Sith Lord, but he is not a Dark Jedi and [[WellIntentionedExtremist has noble intentions, despite how extreme his actions can be sometimes.]] [[spoiler:Him killing Belluzub might be the sign of a HeelFaceTurn to come.]]
* DarthVaderClone: Maesterus qualifies in many ways aside from not being a Sith. [[BlackKnight Full set of black armor?]] Check. Red lightsaber? Check. [[spoiler:[[LukeIAmYourFather Blood-relation to the hero?]] Check. [[PapaWolf Very protective of those related by blood?]] Double-check. Now all that's left is a full-circle redemption.]]

* DishingOutDirt: [[SandWorm Terraris's]] powers.



* DoubleWeapon: Dynn Manthis's weapon of choice is a double-bladed lightsaber.
* TheDragon: Maesterus is this to Valkor, although you might not think that at first since [[TheHeavy he's the most prominent villain]] in Episode I.
** In turn, Dynn Manthis and Arcidus are this to Maesterus.
** [[spoiler:In the Forceless Collective, Belluzub and Facadma are CoDragons to Valkor.]]



* EliteMooks: The Valkoran Black Guard. These guys are Maesterus's bodyguards and they can match Jedi in combat.



** Character-wise, there are several others.
*** Gahmah Raan is like a combination of Boba Fett and [[SelfDemonstrating/Deadpool]].
*** Gestroma is basically a modern [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars Durge]].
*** Admiral Gravlek's armor is based on [[VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga Galak Fyyar's]].
*** Maesterus is to Darth Vader. Just read the DarthVaderClone entry above.
*** [[FourStarBadass General Ven Choi]] is [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars Plo Koon]] with very little Jedi training, especially since he's a Kel Dor too.
*** Admiral Cephal is one for Admiral Ackbar. Same position, same species.
*** From Besh Squad, Boltz seems to be an Expy of [[VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic Sergeant Yuun]], being both a Gand and a [[TheEngineer military tech expert]].
*** Forceless Archfiend Hydrojus is basically [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Morpha]] with [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender blood-bending powers]] used to [[BodyHorror their]] [[CruelAndUnusualDeath extreme]].

* ForTheEvulz:
** Pretty much Belluzub's main motivation for everything he does.
** [[PsychoForHire Gestroma's]] excuse for kidnapping a [[ExplosiveDecompression Skakoan]] and [[GrievousHarmWithABody using him as a bomb]] instead of just using grenades.
** [[spoiler: Masochus sold Emilin out to Valkor (and later cut off her breasts) not because of the ancient grudge between Sith and Jedi, but just because he wanted to torment a Jedi at one point in his life.]]

** Archfiend Xixixix passively throws these to all those within proximity of itself ([[AlmightyIdiot including itself]]), sometimes as a sign of them about to go insane. Not only did it turn the Krishari into a species of [[CloudCuckoolander Cloud Cuckoolanders]], Armogeist was led to believe that keeping Zolph (i.e., one of the people most experienced at killing Archfiends) away from Xixixix was the best way to kill it. A few chapters later, he admits that what he did was stupid.
* IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: Subverted in Episode I: Chapter 15, [[spoiler: when Belluzub is at Zolph's mercy after he pushed his BerserkButton. Zolph withdraws his blade after he catches onto [[NiceJobFixingItVillain Belluzub's scheme to break him]] (and having just gone through the same crap in the previous chapter). However, Zolph knows that sparing his life would defeat the purpose of why he came there in the first place, [[TakeAThirdOption so he just traps him in a force-field cage to be blown up with the space station instead of striking him down in anger]].]]

* PsychoForHire:
** Belluzub voluntarily joined the Forceless Collective just so he could kill more people.
** Gestroma. He almost always kills his targets [[FantasticRacism (especially if they're human)]], he's willing to use Skakoans as bombs, and threatens to mount Zolph's head on his wall.



* PsychopathicManchild:
** R9-C4 is a non-villainous example. Through her beeping that can be interpreted as faux mathematical equations, she will sometimes make a mischievous giggle out of them when she's about to cause some mayhem. Zolph also has to make sure she won't kill everyone. She also has a habit giving people descriptively derogatory names upon meeting them for the first time. She's more of a thrill-seeker than anything, but some of her ideas of fun include killing people in [[CruelAndUnusualDeath creatively sadistic]] ways.
** While far from AxCrazy, Gahmah Raan can be violently childish when the people he's talking to ignore him, sometimes (non-fatally) shooting at them or barely missing to get their attention. And that's aside from his general [[CloudCuckoolander eccentricity]]. He also cracks jokes when he's killing people sometimes. Still, he's relatively tame compared to most examples of this trope.
** [[EldritchAbomination Mandoculus]] isn't really psychopathic, but it's being bullied into fighting the Collective's foes out of fear of possession and it can't speak properly.
** Neur, usually a cheerful GenkiGirl, is this as a result of an abusive upbringing under the Nightsisters' wing. The psychopathic part really shows when her cybernetic head-tails malfunction.
** [[TheCaligula Masochus]] is far worse than any of the above. According to Armogeist, he once slowly dissolved a [[WouldHurtAChild pregnant]] [[WouldHitAGirl woman]] [[CruelAndUnusualDeath in an acid vat]] [[DisproportionateRetribution just for calling Korriban by one of its later-generation names]], and he goes into a violent temper tantrum whenever he hears one of them.
* PunchClockVillain: Gahmah Raan, obviously because he's a BountyHunter. This is even further emphasized when he just [[KnowWhenToFoldEm leaves Kratzar after a duel with Zolph where they were evenly matched]]. However, he has also worked with the Galactic Alliance during the Yuuzhan Vong War.

* RealityEnsues:
** Over the course of the story, Zolph suffers several injuries, and said injuries sometimes put him out of commission for times ranging from days to months depending on how severe the injury in question is. The more severe examples of these injuries include getting pinned to a wall, [[spoiler: getting his arm cut off, having a hand dug into his chest and having his heart squeezed on]].
** Valkoran trooper [[ButtMonkey Will Helms']] treatment by his own peers in regards to his [[TheyKilledKennyAgain inability to stay dead]]. If they haven't known him long or do not know of his inability, they are shocked by both his death and resurrection (especially if done an [[AccidentalMurder accident]]). If they've known him long enough and are on generally good terms with him, they are desensitized to his deaths and sometimes have him take the bait for things that would kill anyone else permanently. On the other hand, people like [[AxCrazy Masochus]] will kill him over and over again [[ItAmusedMe for their own amusement]]. By the time of Episode II, [[DeathIsCheap Helms has learned to abuse this trait to his own advantage]], but still finds getting killed annoying.
** Episode I: Chapter 2 - Zolph tries to take on Maesterus, who had just came close to killing Luke Skywalker after cutting off his prosthetic hand. However, as Luke is the Jedi academy's headmaster and Zolph is only simple knight, Zolph doesn't fare any better against Maesterus - in fact, [[CurbStompBattle he fares worse]], as while Luke is able to bounce back and curb-stomp Maesterus back, [[ItMakesSenseInContext Zolph gets nailed to a wall]].
** Episode I: Chapter 10
*** Zolph and Gahmah Raan engage each other in an evenly matched duel that lasts 10 minutes in-universe. It ends with both of them fatigued, and hampers Zolph in two ways. Not only did the duel get every Valkoran personnel on Kratzar's attention, it puts Zolph at a disadvantage when he runs into Maesterus.
*** [[spoiler: When Zolph loses his right arm to Maesterus, Zolph tries to invoke being a HandicappedBadass and fights back in spite of losing his sword arm. Maesterus knocks the lightsaber out of Zolph's hand with little effort and destroys it.]]
** Episode I: Chapter 11 - a few members of the Galactic Alliance's RedShirtArmy have their first encounter with a [[EldritchAbomination Forceless Archfiend]], Hydrojus. After Hydrojus demonstrates its ability to kill people by [[CruelAndUnusualDeath crushing them with their own insides or making them burst]], the surviving RedShirts of that mission are traumatized and ordered on leave for at least a month.
** Episode I: Chapter 12 - Similar to his mission on Kratzar, Zolph disguises himself as a Valkoran Trooper, but carries his lightsaber in case he runs into a Force-sensitive SensorCharacter like Maesterus or Dynn Manthis. He thinks he can work around the blatant giveaway by claiming it's a [[CreepySouvenir battlefield trophy]], but not only can the sensor characters tell who he is, Admiral Gravlek is easily able to out him as a Jedi because Valkoran army procedure prohibits battlefield trophies and was having the rest of the ship's crew play dumb to lure Zolph into a trap. (Gahmah Raan was easily able to out him in Chapter 10 as well, and unlike Gravlek's case, it was the exact same lightsaber he saw a chapter earlier and Gahmah [[TheGadfly just took the time to annoy Zolph into fully exposing himself]]).
** Episode I: Chapter 13-14 - Being only 18 years old, losing close friends and loved ones finally [[BreakTheCutie takes its toll on Zolph's psyche]], [[spoiler: especially when he's forced to MercyKill his girlfriend, Dynn Manthis, due to [[BodyHorror unusually]] [[AndIMustScream horrific]] circumstances]]. In Episode II, this culminates in him not only experiencing some horrifying (and potentially lethal) PTSD episodes in places strong with the Dark Side of the Force (such as the cave on Dagobah), but also temporarily becoming a DeathSeeker. Zolph goes through some psychotherapy (and is prohibited from taking missions as a personal distraction) in response to this and it helps out his mental health significantly, but no amount of therapy is going to make one's PTSD just go away. Even when the end of Episode II [[spoiler: provides a slight glimmer of hope that Dynn may or may not be BackFromTheDead but way out of reach, Zolph acknowledges that he may still be affected by her death for the rest of his life]].

'''[[spoiler:Dynn Manthis]]:''' Really? In the galaxy I come from, usually when you see one part of a planet, you have pretty much a good idea what the rest of the planet looks like.

* AncientConspiracy: The Valkoran Empire has been hiding and operating in the Unknown Regions for four-thousand years before challenging the Galactic Alliance.

** Guaymar is a planet perpetually shrouded in darkness. Its native sentient species are cannibalistic savages that worship a god of death and one of the only forests on the planet is also home to a deceptive, sedentary {{Planimal}} that is disguised among the trees. The massive, crashed starship is also haunted with four ghost-like aliens that, if they don't kill you by sucking out your blood, will cause you to die in four days from a death curse triggered from just having their prey seen all four of them. It also goes through a global ZombieApocalypse every few years (and the summoning of Stythanyx, also the aforementioned Guaymaran god of death, could create a longer lasting one).

Added DiffLines:

* DeathWorld: In addition to some pre-established death worlds from both canon and Legends, ''Paranormalities'' features a few original to it.
** Unlike most volcanic worlds, Kratzar - which is actually just a planet in its primordial state and not suffering from a cataclysm - is entirely covered in lava, save for a few islands. These islands are used as mining sites by both Mustafarian colonists and Valkoran forces, but are often infested with giant lava snakes that sometimes pop out of the mining siphons.
** Krantisi was once home to some really large creatures, [[RibcageRidge whose skeletons are now part of the environment]]. It's still infested with a lot of dangerous creatures, including giant spiky lizards, sentient cacti that drain their prey's body fluids until they're a brittle husk and [[SandWorm sand sharks]] among others.

** Krishar has trees that fire Force lightning randomly and is home to an insane EldritchAbomination that has driven its native sentient race into insanity as well.
** Chilades is so cold that humans require devices that raise their own body temperature, has toxic lakes and is inhabited by mutated animals, all carnivorous.

* PurpleEyes: Grein, of the [[MonochromaticEyes monochromatic]] variety, and this is one of her key physical traits. She is an anomaly in that her species, the Chiss, usually have red eyes. The in-universe reason for this trait is that [[spoiler: purple-eyed Chiss are now an endangered species because of an interspecies race cleansing during the days of the ancient Republic]]. Out of universe, this was specifically to avert the RedEyesTakeWarning trope since Forceless have red eyes already (and that the [[TheThrawnTrilogy most]] [[VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic notable]] of Chiss have been portrayed as villainous or working with villains).
