* {{Jerkass}}: Assuming it wasn't the ''mal'' influencing him, Howard Phillips seems to have been this. During his time [[spoiler: at the crater he showed no concern for his fellow explorers' safety or well-being, constantly made clear in his journal that he thought they were all useless, left a very sick explorer alone at the camp while he and the only other explorer went off exploring and didn't even seem to feel at all guilty when the man died. He even blamed the first casualty of the expedition on the man himself.]] Being an {{Expy}} of Creator/HPLovecraft, he also possesses the insufferable habit of derailing the recollection of events to expound upon his own brilliance and skill, peppered with casual dismissal for those of "lower" station.

Added DiffLines:

* OurZombiesAreDifferent: Bob is a RevenantZombie created by Mal exposure. He's suprisingly helpful towards Alex (Unless he's a hallucination, see ThroughTheEyesOfMadness below).
