** This is all rather debatable; even Lovecraft, himself, depicted the Deep Ones as sophisticated, if evil, creatures that have a highly advanced culture, as evidenced by their highly developed artistic skills. Likewise, Y'ha'neth'lei, their home city, is presented as a place of endless, if mind-bending, wonders. The citizens of Innsmouth appear degenerate and pathetic because they have absolutely no care for their existence above water, and eagerly wait to leave their humanity behind for good, so they spend most of their time in drunken stupor.

* CrazyPrepared: The protagonist. Given the unreliable technology, one hardly expects a gent to carry a flashlight, or have the Twenties' equivalent of a multitool in his keyring. Both tools see use [[spoiler:and ultimately save his hide]].

* ProperlyParanoid: Replacing the bolt on the main door to his room and fastening all others prevents the main character from being ambushed in the middle of the night.

* FaceFullOfAlienWingWong: It's never explained ''why'' exactly the Deep Ones are so insistent on mating with humans. Zadok implies that the Deep Ones feel some sort of kinship with humanity and for one reason or another are drawn to mating with them.

* TalkativeLoon: When properly "motivated" by alcohol, Zadok will ramble on and on about the true nature of the town, though most people dismiss his rantings as the delusional fantasies of a madman
