* MadScientist: The first arc gives us Tromperie, who's Count Von Brucken's chief collaborator on Project Scion. The Knightfall arc gives us Dr. Marlow, [[spoiler: who was originally supposed to have collaborated with Jennifer on Project Luna, but was sidelined by her because he would have willingly experimented on the embryos, not caring if they were killed by the experiments. He goes on to head Project Terra, creating agents who are designed to be loyal, effective, and disposable.]]


Added DiffLines:

* {{Tykebomb}}: Luna was the first one, created by Jennifer to be the perfect field agent, though she's a much more mellow example. [[spoiler: On the other hand, her "replacement," Terra, plays this pretty much straight, created to be superior to Luna in every fashion and unquestionably loyal to the Agency...as well as easily disposable and replaceable should she fail.]]

''Spoiler Warning'': There's a lot of side-switching and double-crossing in this manga. We'll try to mark spoilers where we can, but reader discretion is advised. Read the manga first if you don't want to be spoiled.



* GrayAndGreyMorality: While many of the characters in the series are good people, all of the ''factions'' are dark grey.
** Count von Brucken is the tinpot dictator of Bruckenstein, and at first comes across as an IneffectualSympatheticVillain; in the backstory, of course, he was a serious, no-nonsense, murderous villain. That said, as an adversary he's not that bad, and [[spoiler: after his HeelFaceTurn]], he's reasonably loyal to and supportive of Luna. [[spoiler: And then he went to take control of Knightfall.]]
** Knightfall are an apparently BenevolentConspiracy formed from the remnants of a rebellion against The Agency's ruthless policies and tendency to lie to their agents and discard anyone who's [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness outlived their usefulness]], while their leader regards all of his agents as "his family." However, [[spoiler: Master Control is NotSoDifferent; while he does care about his new "family" to an extent, he's still willing to sacrifice someone for the good of the whole, and he's most certainly even more okay with lying to his children and preying on their emotional vulnerabilities than the Agency. Ultimately, though, Jennifer's reason for opposing Master Control is that he's personally betrayed her.]] As of Volume 9, [[spoiler: they've been taken over by the Von Bruckens]].
** The Agency doesn't even bother to hide it: they don't care about their "assets" except as assets, and they're willing to freely tolerate and engage in foul play in America's interests, or even [[spoiler: terminate Luna and replace her with a next-generation version if Luna doesn't work out]]. As Jennifer says, [[spoiler: the main difference between the Agency and Knightfall is that the Agency doesn't ''pretend'' to care, and thus they're the lesser of two evils. They're also more easily-intimidated.]]
** Control is a stern parental figure and, in most things, a mouthpiece for the Agency's commands. [[spoiler: But she's that strict because she is Luna's ''mother'', and [[MamaBear desperately fighting to prevent "Project Luna" from being terminated]]. Eventually, she mellows out a bit with Luna, and defends that by threatening the Agency to force them to keep Luna alive.]] She's less evil than any of the above, [[spoiler: but as of the end of Volume 9, she's begun assembling her own forces that are personally loyal to her, just as her former mentor, Master Control, once did]].

** [[spoiler: It seems to run in the family. Heinrich and Elyse have both revolved into alliances with the Agency and Knightfall, respectively, but once they gain control of Knightfall, it's clear that their only true loyalty is to each other.]]


Added DiffLines:

* UnholyMatrimony: Heinrich and Elyse von Brucken are genuinely in love with one another, despite both being, at best, of questionable morality.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainsDoTheDirtyWork: [[spoiler: Jennifer gives Master Control a chance to walk away after defeating him, but makes it clear that if he [[MamaBear ever threatens Luna again, he's dead]]. Heinrich and Elyse von Brucken, however, aren't so merciful.]]
