* TheWoobie: Brutha, [[AbusiveParents very]] [[CorruptChurch much]] [[ColdBloodedTorture so]]. Also an IronWoobie, since he goes through all of that without losing his good nature or morality.

* GrowingTheBeard: While there's naturally some disagreement among fans about when the series really became its best, this is the latest book you're likely to hear named as that moment.

** Om, sometimes. He's a [[JerkassGods selfish prick]], but it's hard not to feel occasional sympathy for him given [[LossOfIdentity what he faces]] if he loses his last believer, and he does [[TookALevelInKindness become a significantly better person]] through CharacterDevelopment.

* MagnificentBastard: Vorbis. He launched his counter-attack before he launched his attack. He sent a man to Ephebe to die to justify the attack, and had to kill him when all they did was mock him.
** Also, Lu Tze, who changed the history of Omnia with a compost heap, not sweeping a pile of sand, and a bucket of water.

*** Simony. Also a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds, at least until [[WhatTheHellHero he gets called out on it]], but given what Omnia is like to its own citizens a person from a conquered nation would have [[{{Understatement}} a very hard life]]. [[HarmfulToMinors And he was only a kid at the time.]]

* CompleteMonster: Vorbis. As Death describes him: [[AC: He was a murderer, and a creator of murderers. A torturer. Without passion. Cruel. Callous. Compassionless.]] However [[spoiler: at the end, Brutha takes pity on him]].
** However, the Discworld Companion makes it clear that Vorbis is a KnightTemplar who did all those horrible things because he genuinely thought they were the right thing to do. In the book it's ambiguous whether he ''knows'' he's acting alone and is only in it for power or not.
*** Note that believing in a cause (instead of just doing it for power) doesn't mean one necessarily ''isn't'' pure evil.
