* FaceHeelTurn: The prison camp's second-in-command Oriani. His eyepatch suggests he was an Italian who's actually faced battle, and is openly courteous to the Allied prisoners. When Mussolini falls and the prisoners seize control of the camp, he switches sides and offers to help the [=POW=]s escape despite Fincham's concerns. [[spoiler:He does.]]
