* RonTheDeathEater: While the French were infamous for their brutal treatment of civilians in RealLife, Cornwell often exaggerates their atrocities in such a lurid and exploitative manner that they end up sounding nigh-identical to anti-German propaganda from UsefulNotes/WorldWarI.\\

* [[TheMole Colonel Brand]], from "Sharpe's Mission", is a double agent who starts his career by [[KickTheDog personally killing an injured British officer]], then carrying him back to the British lines and being [[VillainWithGoodPublicity hailed as a hero]] for trying to save him. This is the first of several acts of so-called heroism arranged by his handler French Colonel Cressan, who wants Brand to lure Sharpe and Ross into a trap. Brand murders a Gypsy couple who [[HeKnowsTooMuch saw him meeting Cressan]], then slaughters a Gypsy camp in a failed attempt to kill the couple's daughter, who also witnessed the meeting. He leads his men in massacring a group of French ex-deserters [[SuicideMission set up by Cressan]] and given faulty gunpowder so they were effectively unarmed, making a point of [[SoftSpokenSadist sadistically]] garroting the one who ran furthest. Despite giving them the self-aggrandizing name Brand's Boys, he has no loyalty to his men, calmly telling Sharpe that [[TheSocialDarwinist he abandons anyone who is injured]]. Even after being exposed and arrested, he tries to convince Sharpe to let him and his men massacre a fort garrison who have also been set up Cressan. {{Smug|Snake}}, arrogant and [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections believing himself invulnerable]] right up to the end, he can't resist BullyingADragon:

-->Well, you've had your fun, Sharpe. But it'll be over in the next few minutes when the Frogs come over that wall. Then you'll need a friend. I'll be your friend, Sharpe, but you're going to have to beg. Because they'll torture you, they'll torture you and they'll torture Ross. You'll be begging me to make them stop. [[SedgwickSpeech And by god, I'm going to make you beg, Sharpe!]]
