* NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist: If pressed by Shepard, he claims to be working in the Galaxy's best interests by making sure its worst scum can't cause any more harm than they already have. But in reality, he's a profit-minded slaver and extortionist who tries to excuse his actions by claiming they're for the greater good.

[[spoiler:Ask Liara how well ''that'' went. His archives also reveal that he was going to kill Tali when he was offering her a sanctuary in return for her information about Saren and the geth in the first game, in order to ensure that the information would not end up in the wrong hands.

** In the ''Lair of the Shadow Broker'' DLC, [[spoiler:he's the biggest and second deadliest enemy you face, only [[TheDragon Tela Vasir]] being stronger]].
** Also [[spoiler:AsskickingEqualsAuthority since he took control of the previous Shadow Broker's organization by starting off as a "pet" and then killing him]].
** The codex mentions that [[spoiler: his entire species are like this; they sort themselves into packs, and fight either physically or intellectually to discover the strongest. It also says that the losers generally accept the winner's authority without bearing grudges, and former enemies have no trouble working together once the hierarchy has been established]].
*** This provides a possible alternative reason for [[spoiler:the fact that his personal computers lack any kind of security (beyond the rather significant fact that any intruder would have to get past him); Liara assumes it's because he never anticipated anyone being in a position to use them, but it's possible that the yahg tendency to not undermine those who have proven their superiority caused him to be a GracefulLoser with his resources, and not try to sabotage anyone who was strong enough to beat him. His predecessor tried to sabotage him in case he won, but was [[KilledMidSentence stopped]] before completing it]].
* BadBoss: Treats his "employees" as quite disposable. He allows a [[spoiler: Spectre who works for him to off one of his agents to disguise her role in the killing of a loose end. He even dismisses the Spectre's death as costing him nothing but time]]. He tortures Feron for betraying him and has his agents watch [[VillainousDemotivator to make sure they're properly motivated]]. When you've practically cleaned out his men, he basically shrugs and says [[WeHaveReserves they're easily replaceable]].

* MechaMooks: They employ some robots to fight for them.



* TheSyndicate: They are really an organized crime group with a PrivateMilitaryContractor facade. They run racketeering in some housing areas (though they are still smart enough to keep their rate affordable so the people won't protest) and their jail ship is actually a hidden slave trade and extortion business at the same time.



* HighlyConspicuousUniform: They wear all bright yellow armor.

* HighlyConspicuousUniform: They wear all bright yellow armor. Averted with some of Donovan Hock's guards however, who wear black armor.

* KickTheDog: She shoots a transport agent for not much reason when the latter tries to run off.

* KickTheDog: She shoots a transport agent for not much reason when the latter tries to run off. She will also kill Niket if Miranda was talked down from doing so.
* KingMook: She is a tougher Eclipse Vanguard and armed with a M-300 Claymore instead of the usual Scimitars.


Added DiffLines:

* KingMook: Subversion of the others, she is no tougher than an average Eclipse Commando, but she has a unique ability to toss drug canisters around.


Added DiffLines:

* ObstructiveBureaucrat: He acts like this during Grunt's loyalty mission. It is possible for Shepard to point out that he is no different from a Citadel politician.
