* '''Zig Zagged''': Hawkeye really is self-centered in who he likes, but it's because he doesn't really know what Leo and Redd do, except he does and doesn't care.

* '''Straight''': [[TheHero Hawkeye's]] best friend is [[TheLancer Leo]], a former bandit who's implied to have done some pretty questionable things in his past and isn't afraid to lie, cheat, steal and manipulate to get what he wants -- but they're [=BFFs=], so that's okay. [[TheRival Redd]], meanwhile, is a charming, compassionate young guardsman working to protect their community... Unfortunately, he's also caught [[SatelliteLoveInterest Suzy]]'s interest, so Hawkeye, and the readers, hates his guts.

Redd is Leo's polar opposite, an upstanding fellow in all regards -- but since Suzy has a bit of a crush on him, ''[[DieForOurShip he must die]]''.
