*** On the one hand, he was often on top of what happens, rarely rattled, and DangerouslyGenreSavvy to the point of subverting NarrativeCausality to his will. He was secretly perpetrating an Illuminati-style conspiracy with his adventuring companions over the entire Western Continent, ensuring that rule of every nation will soon be in the hands of six people. He had made major progress towards that goal, and he planned it so that he'll get to play the villain for a few decades before a hero inevitably stops him -- getting to live as a king and then live on as a legend, since he's bound to make such an epic story and EvilIsCool. After he explains this to Elan, causing him to run away in terror, Tarquin just stands there... [[AGlassOfChianti and smoothly takes a drink.]] [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0763.html Here's the specific comic described above where we really grasp just how magnificent Tarquin can be, aptly titled "Plotting Something".]]
*** On the other hand, he has an [[ItsAllAboutMe overinflated ego]], which makes him badly WrongGenreSavvy; he is convinced that the story revolves around him and Elan as the BigBad and TheHero, when it's really about Xykon and Roy, respectively. He only sees this one vision for the story, and when things stop going according to his plan, he's unable to adapt. He becomes increasingly desperate and unhinged in his attempts to force things back on track, culminating in a full-on VillainousBreakdown. As the Giant points out [[http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=318550&page=4 in the forum]], he overstates his own agency in his team's mutual plan, and his [[GenreSavvy genre savviness]] alone could only get him so far. This is highlighted when we see [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0921.html his adventuring buddies]], who treat him more like a story fanatic than the MagnificentBastard he claims to be.

** Terezi, on the other hand, doesn't need any psychic powers, she can manipulate people into doing whatever she wants just by being skilled at pressing people's buttons, and she's frighteningly good at it. She even managed to trick ''an omniscient being'' into carrying out a revenge plot for her. Of course, being able to read minds probably helps.

** General Tarquin is always on top of what happens, never rattled, and DangerouslyGenreSavvy to the point of subverting NarrativeCausality to his will.
