[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_1cast_aidan___cc___640x360_5240.jpg]]
* TheAtoner
* BeingGoodSucks
* BigBrotherInstinct: To Josh.
* BuriedAlive: [[spoiler:In the season 2 finale.]]
* CainAndAbel: With Marcus sort of since they're vampiric "brothers". [[spoiler: However in the 4th season with Sally having altered the events of the show Marcus and Aidan are shown to be on excellent terms as they laugh and get drunk on blood together. Marcus even remarks this "So good to see the Aidan I know and love is back".]]
* CartwrightCurse: To a ridiculous degree. Lampshaded by Henry.
* ChickMagnet
* DarkAndTroubledPast
* DeathSeeker: During the Season 3 episode ''I'm so Lonesome I Could Die.''
* DefiantToTheEnd: Mixed with HeroicSacrifice. When it becomes clear he isn't getting out of Liam's torture chamber alive, Aidan tries to protect Nora by lying about having killed Brynn, taunting Liam about how she begged for mercy. [[spoiler: Josh manages to rescue him in time, but not before Liam gives him a shot of infected blood.]]
* MrFanservice: Oh ''my'', yes.
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:In season 4's alternate timeline.]]
* FaceHeelRevolvingDoor: Season 4 shows that Aidan has a sordid history of this. Consistently JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope into villainy, then later becoming TheAtoner and a FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire to make up for his horrible deeds.
* FascinatingEyebrow: His eyebrows are incredibly expressive.
* FateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler: Mother claims the 'eternal madness' of being being buried alive is this. However Aidan considers her killing of Suren to be hers.]]
* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire: Aidan tries but lapses frequently.
* GlamourFailure: Vampires have HypnoticGaze but you have to practice to be good at it. Aidan doesn't and isn't.

* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Josh.
* HumanityEnsues: [[spoiler: Aidan becomes human at the end of season 4]]

* ILoveYouVampireSon: Towards Henry. [[spoiler:And Kenny]]
* OffTheWagon and onto somebody's neck.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Was turned during UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution, so well over 200.
* TeamDad: During the first two seasons. Getting [[spoiler: buried underground for a year]] pretty much erases his ability to fill this role, though.
* VillainBallMagnet: The harder Aidan tries to fix things the worse things get. Usually because he goes for the quick fix instead of simply taking things as they come.
* VitriolicBestBuds: [[spoiler:Marcus and Aidan's original relationship seems to have been this before Aidan left and went vegan.]]
* WarmBloodbagsAreEverywhere: Vampires often link blood and sex and Aidan does draw the ladies' attention.

[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_cast_josh___cc___640x360_9261.jpg]]
* {{Adorkable}}
* BadassNormal: During the time that he's [[spoiler: cured]]. The self-esteem and perspective he gets following the events of the season 2 finale end up pushing him to become the most heroic member of the cast in season 3.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: The badass factor doesn't go away after [[spoiler: Liam curses him again.]]
* BlatantLies: But is terrible at it.
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Julia's death causes this. He blames her death on Ray.]]
* HollywoodNerd
* FantasticReligiousWeirdness: Josh is still Jewish, but no longer very observant, as he feels that Judaism would frown on the whole turning-into-a-wolf thing.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Aidan.
* HumanityEnsues
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: While Josh would fervently deny this, almost all the destructive and selfish things that he's done have been a result of ''his'' decisions as a human, not his lycanthropy or actions as a wolf.
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler: His premeditated murder of Ray. When he faces Ray again in season 3 he taunts a wolfed out Ray that he'll visit his son next and kill him too.]]
* IJustWantToBeNormal
* InformedJudaism
* [[IHateYouVampireDad I Hate You Werewolf Dad]] [[spoiler: His relationship with Ray. This will most likely carry over to Liam now that he's been infected again.]]

* MistakenForGay: By Danny. [[spoiler: And his parents, much to Aidan's amusement.]]
* MysteriousAnimalSenses: Around his "time of the month".
* OnlySaneMan: Of all the characters in the show, Josh is easily the one that tries hardest to be human.
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: [[spoiler: After being turned a second time and passing through Donna's door, Josh became what can best be described as a reverse werewolf, being stuck in wolf form throughout most of the month and only becoming human again on the full moon. Sally uses blood magic to reverse this, but the spell was not completed correctly, and though Josh is now mostly human, he is still very much affected by his wolf throughout the month, having extreme mood swings and turning when he least expects it. As far as we know, he is the only werewolf in existence that can turn without a full moon, unless those he was forced into turning share his ability]].
* PapaWolf: Josh has become one for his adopted family. Ironically, [[spoiler:he's more of a wolf as a man protecting his family than he ever was as an actual werewolf.]] Even Liam is impressed.
* StatusQuoIsGod: [[spoiler:Spends most of the third season as a human once he kills Ray. Comes to an end when he attempts to save Aidan and winds up getting injured by Liam.]]
* ShapeshifterModeLock: For three months after the events of the Season 3 finale. It gets bad enough that he starts to [[spoiler:forget what it's like to be human]].
* TeamMom
* TookALevelInBadass: After he [[spoiler:kills Ray]]. The submissive, non-confrontational Josh of the first two seasons is gone in season three, replaced by a Josh that is confident and not afraid to face danger head-on (or even to ''take a life'') to protect his family.
** He becomes incredibly powerful after [[spoiler:his curse worsens, to the point where he can single-handedly fight off multiple vampires without the influence of the full moon]].
* TookALevelInJerkass: His anti-social personality worsens in season 4, to the point where Nora feels the need to sleep with a knife under her pillow. [[spoiler:In the alternate timeline Sally creates, alternate Josh is incredibly put off by her presence and so dismissive of her pushing him into a relationship with Nora, he gives up on relationships completely.]]
* VillainProtagonist / WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:During the season 2 finale when he plans to kill Ray. He does claim to do it to cure Nora but it's clear he blames Ray for Julia's death.]]
* WolfMan

* AmbiguouslyBi: Sally tends to come off as this on occasion. For instance while talking at Emily, Josh's sister, she says she could make her feel happy. And when Nora comes over, Sally promptly quips that she's hot and has nice boobs.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: "Get Out of My Dreams, Get Into My Mouth" revealed she is at least part Indian (as in South Asian, not Native American).
* AxeCrazy: after it's revealed that [[spoiler: the Reaper is actually her]].
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:She was brought back from Limbo via BloodMagic in Season 3, meaning she temporarily had a corporeal body again.]]
* ButterflyOfDoom: [[spoiler:After Sally uses magic and is sent back in time to the night she died, she decides to save herself from her own death at the hands of Danny. As she still possesses knowledge of her life with Aidan, Josh, and Nora, she tries her best to rewrite history with herself still part of their lives but saving them from all of the problems that befell them. This backfires entirely on her: Bridget dies when she dates Danny leaving her to suspect Danny killed her. She becomes a werewolf instead of Nora, keeping Josh and Nora from ever becoming close. And when she and Aidan fall in love, it only drives Josh away from them and with Ray, ultimately resulting in her death, again.]]
* CameBackWrong: [[spoiler:Her plot in season 3.]]
* CuteGhostGirl: Naturally.
* DeadpanSnarker: She has her moments.
* DraggedOffToHell: [[spoiler:What appears to be her fate at the end of season 3.]]

* JacobMarleyApparel
* TheKillerInMe: [[spoiler:Though it's more like ''The Grim Reaper'' in me.]]
* LikeABadassOutOfHell: [[spoiler:Not actually Hell, but Purgatory and some other dimension Donna was keeping her locked in]].
* MindOverMatter: May depend on her stress level.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Sally's attempts at helping people almost always backfire in some way.
* NightmareFetishist: Sally definitely has her moments, such as her conversation in the Season 2 finale where she urges Josh to carve up Ray with some garden shears rather than shoot him.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: In season 4, she becomes a [[spoiler:time-traveling]] ghost witch [[spoiler:werewolf, possessing her own body, in the past, from the future]]
* NotUsingTheZWord: [[spoiler:In season 3 Sally abhors being called a zombie or implying that her deterioration is actually the act of decomposition.]]
* OurGhostsAreDifferent
** OurZombiesAreDifferent
*** OurWitchesAreDifferent
**** OurTimeTravelIsDifferent
* RefusalOfTheCall: In Season 3, Sally no longer wants anything to do with trying to help ghosts and other people as it has always ended badly for everybody. She goes so far as to disperse ghosts who try to ask her for help. She turns around by Season 4.
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:Season 2 reveals that she began going insane after missing her door, and only snapped back to reality after shredding herself]].
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: [[spoiler:After being sent back in time to the night of her death, she manages to merge with her past self and now TrappedInThePast decides to use her knowledge of her life with Josh and Aidan to make their lives in this timeline better, but only makes things worse.]]
* SheCleansUpNicely: Her dream self certainly does.
** [[spoiler:Even more so after being reanimated. Straightened hair and snazzier clothes did a wonder for her appearance.]]
* StatusQuoIsGod: [[spoiler:Sally's reanimated body gives out in the second to last episode of season three. The bright side is she's at least in a new dress and not wearing her pajamas anymore.]]
* TooSpicyForYogSothoth
* VillainProtagonist: [[spoiler:When she's revealed to be The Reaper. And in the season 2 finale she eagerly assists in planning Ray's murder, even possessing Ray's wife in order to lure him to his death. "Scott" even calls her out on it.]]
* VillainBallMagnet: Every time Sally says the phrase "I can help" expect the lives of everyone around her to be worse off then before she met them.
* WhodunnitToMe
* YouCanSeeMe: In the pilot.

* KickTheDog: [[spoiler:Instead of trying to defuse the situation, she decides to help Josh kill Ray and shoots him.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: Her monologue to Josh in Season 2 Episode 7 that she is not afraid that she [[spoiler: killed her ex-boyfriend]] but rather that she doesn't feel any remorse about it.
** [[spoiler: By season 3, this has changed.]]
* {{Muggle}}: At first...
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: It would seem that wolves turned from humans with a lot of emotional baggage (an abusive boyfriend, in Nora's case) are even more violent, since their built-up anger is not inhibited in wolf form. Nora also reveals that she can remember everything from her transformations, which is probably due to her being more accepting of the transformation than Josh.
* ScarsAreForever: They even appear on her werewolf form.
** [[spoiler: Her scars have now been healed as of Season 4, thanks to Sally's newfound magic powers.]]
* SixthRanger
* TookALevelInJerkass: In season 3, after taking in Erin as her legal guardian, she become increasingly hostile towards Aidan, [[spoiler:even after Erin poisons him and tries to kill him.]] And starts pressuring Josh into choosing between his friendship with Aidan and relationship with her to the point of implying he needs to kill Aidan.
* [[ZombieInfectee Werewolf Infectee]]: at the end of Season 1.

* [[FlayingAlive Flayed Alive]]: As retribution by Suren.

Purebred werewolf twins that offer to fund Josh's research.
[[quoteright:295:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/being_human_mclean_752.png]]
* AffablyEvil: Brynn. According to Nora when running off with her off-screen, she is much more sadistic.
* AndIMustScream: They describe their human existence like this. Josh is uncomfortable with heightened senses and moods the few days before a full moon, they feel that way ''every moment'' they're not wolves.
* [[BullyingADragon Bullying A Vampire]]: Taunting Aidan was probably not the best move, Connor. [[spoiler: Especially since he had a rifle loaded with silver bullets]].
* CorruptTheCutie: They basically do this to Nora.
* {{Jerkass}}: very much so.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Both of them. Connor was first killed by Aidan and later Nora killed Brynn during the time she ran away with her.]]
* MoralityChain: Nora suggests that Connor was this to Brynn, not the other way around. Of course, this is a relative chain since Connor's idea of a good time is torturing vampires and hunting them down for fun. One can only imagine what Nora might have seen Brynn do without Connor's influence.
** It's suggested that it's torturing and eating humans.
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: They're pure-bred werewolves whose senses are constantly heightened, not just a day or two before the full moon.
* PunyHumans: What they think of everyone else.
* RichIdiotWithNoDayJob
-->'''Josh:''' I'm pretty sure she had a pony when she was a little girl... right until the day she ATE it...

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness

!!Liam [=McLean=]
!!!Portrayed By: Xander Berkeley
Brynn and Connor's father, who comes to Boston in the third season to try and find out what happened to to his son and daughter.
[[quoteright:323:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/being_human_dad_mclean_8812.png]]
* AntiVillain: If you think about it, extermination of all vampires WOULD probably make the world a better place, and much of his motivation comes from love for his children, but he's also a major antagonist.
** On the other hand, he also has very little regard for humans, so in that sense, he's not really any better than the vampires he claims to be superior to despite his other claim of being part of 'nature's will'. Plus, despite being concerned with the safety of werewolves, he doesn't really have any reverence for other werewolves either, generally using them as pawns or tools.
* {{Badass}}: He was introduced into the show by killing an entire room full of (admittedly sick) vampires.
* EvilCounterpart: Well... eviler anyway to Bishop. Both are very similar in a lot of ways but Bishop at least made the attempt at being civil and civilized. Liam clearly partakes in human culture because of necessity or because it's useful.
* FantasticRacism: Against vampires.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Seems to hold this view. Or PunyHumans at least.
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Like his children, he's a pure-bred werewolf.
* PapaWolf: Literally.
* WouldHurtAChild: Liam [[spoiler: smothers Erin in her hospital bed after she fails to murder Aidan]]

** And then, after he escapes ''that,'' [[spoiler: he becomes a ravenous flesh-eating zombie who eats cats to keep from rotting, and very nearly eats his girlfriend Zoe as well. Being bashed in the head and becoming a ghost again is actually a relief for him]]
