* InsultBackfire[=/=]IllTakeThatAsACompliment: During the argument between Gallardi and The Illusive Man, Gallardi brings up a quote from an Imperium general on how courage wins wars and makes Humanity what it is. When The Illusive Man calls said general hopelessly idealistic, like Shepard, Gallardi says that Shepard should take that as a compliment: the general he quoted was [[FourStarBadass Lord Commander Solar Macharius]], whose crusade brought nearly a thousand planets under the Imperium's control in about a decade and who was considered a military genius on par with ''[[GodEmperor the Emperor Himself]]''. Shepard says she has a lot to live up to for that comparison.

* MindRape: Maeteris does this to Jack by implanting some of her memories of Chaos into Jack's mind. This sends Jack into a minor HeroicBSOD, and it informs Maeteris that [[spoiler: Jack's a psyker]].

* NotSoStoic: Maeteris is full of poise and grace and firmly follows the ascetic lifestyle of her kind, and Kasumi manages to get a laugh out of her more than once.
** And she and Gallardi end up bonding somewhat by jokingly speculating on the [[TheFederation Tau]] attempting to recruit [[BloodKnight the]] [[AxeCrazy Orks]] to [[EpicFail join the Greater Good]].

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gallardi gives one to The Illusive Man, calling him a selfish coward for not having enough faith in Humanity's ability to combat the alien races. For someone who lived in the most CrapsackWorld possible, it's actually pretty inspiring.
** HumansAreMorons: It's that The Illusive Man thinks this trope, as he believes that humanity has no natural advantage against all of the other aliens and so must try to get the advantage where they can.

* AbsoluteXenophobe: One of the biggest sources of conflict is Gallardi's training and conditioning clashing with the Citadel's open policy towards aliens of all kinds. He begins to grow out of it around Chapter 18, but he has a crisis of faith following the team's departure from Illium Justified in-story, as Gallardi points out just how horrific the aliens of the 41st Millennium are, and how the aliens of Mass Effect are much more friendly as less likely to eat you.

* GivingRadioToTheRomans: {{Downplayed}}: Galardi gives the Systems Alliance (but ''not'' the Citadel Council) the principles for Imperial laser technology. Considering how much ME-verse combat revolves around kinetic barriers, directed energy weaponry is a major GameBreaker in this universe.

* {{Badass}}: Everyone, but special mention goes to Gallardi when he kills [[TheBrute a krogan]] with ''a sword'' (granted it's a power sword but still).
** Also a mention to Maeteris, in the latest chapter Maeteris not only kill a krogan with a sword, but it also shows how powerful a Farseer is[[spoiler: by sensing an ambush made by a Shadow Broker Agent among other things]].

Added DiffLines:

* OutsideContextProblem: The main reason why Gallardi is so powerful: everything about combat in the ME-verse is built around the kinetic barriers, and Gallardi's lasgun ignores them entirely.
