* GreenEyedMonster: [[http://well-of-souls.com/outsider/outsider116.html Beryl's]] [[http://well-of-souls.com/outsider/outsider117.html reaction]] to Jardin shaking hands with Arrir Talon, one of the ship's pilots, certainly gives the impression that she's jealous that Talon achieved something she didn't.

* CrapsaccharineWorld: The Loroi act very civil towards Alex and the races in their alliance, so they seem better than the Umiak. However, at least half of the races in the Alliance are only in it as a subjugated population or out of fear, as the Loroi have committed or attempted xenocide ''multiple times'' for petty, borderline StupidEvil reasons. There's a general, somewhat sinister "be nice to us or we'll kill you" tone to their interactions with others.

* StupidEvil: Some of the actions of both the Loroi and the Umiak come off as this, or at least needlessly antagonistic. Notably, when Kikitik-27 offers a peaceful solution to a confrontation that gives everyone what they want, Stillstorm's reaction is [[{{Jerkass}} to laugh at him and blow up the wreckage that Kikitik wants just to spite him]].

* AllThereInTheManual: Francis has written a number of supporting articles detailing the ''Outsider'' universe, including many things the readers know (yet Jardin doesn't) or vice versa. There is currently more manual than webcomic.

* GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe: The Loroi, and ''how''. The author says in the FAQ that they're intended as a "homage to the 'Space Amazon' archetype", citing ''VideoGame/MasterOfOrion'', ''VideoGame/StarControl'', and ''Anime/SpaceBattleshipYamato'' as examples. MOO 2 in particular is the source of inspiration for everything from names to uniform color schema to ''hairstyles.''

* BrutalHonesty: As Tempo politely explains (with a hint of shame), many within Loroi society have trouble grasping basic tact, instead preferring to speak whatever is on their minds as bluntly as they can -- thus, the main reason why their history is founded on endless bloodshed. They've developed strict rules to leave diplomatic negotiations to those trained for such tasks (like Tempo herself) while the rest are obligated to keep their mouths shut during the process... ''especially'' if it's someone like [[{{Jerkass}} Stillstorm]].

Added DiffLines:

* LeanAndMean: Commander Stillstorm is noticeably thinner than the other Loroi aboard ship, and proves herself to be far ''nastier'' than the rest of them.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainousCheekbones: Not quite established as a villain (yet), but Stillstorm's sharp, angular cheeks are a visual cue to her cold-hearted, {{Jerkass}} nature.

* {{Badass}}: Kikitik-27, or [[AwesomeMcCoolName "The Stray"]] as the Loroi call him. He's survived ''two'' attrition assault missions, ZergRush missions that are famous for having few (if any) survivors.
