!!Law Enforcement

[[folder:Mal Charles Fallon]]
[[quoteright:241:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img_0009_9350.png]]
The most effective of the [=SFPD=]'s detectives...not to mention [[CowboyCop kind of controversial]]. He's well known for his unwillingness to let authority go, if not unquestioned, then at least without justification. There's a reason for this. His father, a former captain of the police? [[DirtyCop Corrupt like you wouldn't believe.]] He began finding out about the corruption around high school (resulting in him acting out quite a bit), and received the ultimate [[BrokenPedestal pedestal-breaker]] when the Flores Cartel tried to assassinate the informant he was escorting--to protect Jacob. Since then, he's been ''incredibly'' resolute to be the best cop he can be, in part to redeem the Fallons from Jacob's taint. [[TearJerker Didn't do wonders for his personal life, though.]]

Ever since the Maskmaker situation, he's been teamed up with Natara Williams to deal with San Francisco's current Connoisseur-catalyzed serial killer problem. They're a perfect dyad for the task...[[UnresolvedSexualTension in more ways than one]].

* AmicableExes: It helps that he realizes that Sandra's infidelity was more of a ''result'' of how dissonant their careers had rendered their personal lives.
* BrokenPedestal: Idolizing your superlative police officer father in your early years. Then finding out just ''how'' much of a DirtyCop he is, ''while he's the captain''...'''''OUCH.'''''
* ByTheBookCop / CowboyCop: He tends to shift back and forth between these. He's ''usually'' By-the-Book, unless he feels a sense of urgency with someone's life on the line. At least even ''then'', he has the sense to keep his eyes out for probable cause.
* DeadpanSnarker
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Even as early as Season 3 (poor Tasha), it's clear he's developed feelings for Natara. Well, not clear to ''him'' (or Natara)...
* FollowInMyFootsteps: Averted. Even after [[BrokenPedestal Jacob's pedestal starts crumbling]], Mal's ''still'' determined to maintain the Fallon police tradition.
* IAmNotMyFather: And he's determined to ''stay'' that way.
* NamesTheSame: His full name is Malachi Charles Fallon--the same as the one who founded the [=SFPD=] in the 19th century.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Natara's blue.
* VictoriousChildhoodFriend: His wife Sandra was his classmate in high school--and they married about two years after graduation. Unfortunately, it didn't last much past ten years, although not for lack of trying.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Natara Mansingh Williams]]
* TheProfiler: Natara's chief ability is in profiling criminals.
* ActionGirl: Along with most of the female cast.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Kenneth Marcus Greene]]

Ken is introduced as Mal's best friend on the force. Ken is a guy who was always gung ho and like Mal, a bit of a CowboyCop. He was also reputed to be something of a playboy but in Season 8, he [[spoiler: settled down into a relationship with Amy. Unfortunately, he was killed off later in 8-6.]]

* BlackBestFriend: To Mal.
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice: In 8-6, realizing he isn't going to survive Zargoza's attack, he intentionally grabs him and flings them both out of Amy's building. Even though Zargoza ''[[MadeOfIron survives]]'', Amy is saved from his attack.]]
* JiveTurkey: Comparatively speaking, anyway. His diction is ''much'' more jocular and slangy than anyone else's, but good luck matching him to any of the usual stereotypes.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* [[spoiler:PlayerPunch]]: [[spoiler: His death]] in 8-6 can count as one.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Maria Yu-Sun Yeong]]

[[DaChief Captain of the SFPD's homicide division]]. The daughter of immigrants from South Korea (they left when she was three), Yeong didn't take long to be promoted to the homicide division. It was there that she learned firsthand of [[CorruptCop Jacob Fallon's little empire]], and practically turned exposing him into a second career. Despite all that, though, she actually managed to develop [[HappilyMarried a healthy family]]. [[spoiler: She was pressured into resigning at the end of 9-8, when she disobeyed direct orders from InternalAffairs representative Charles Anders, in order to ensure no one else would be blacklisted. However, Seth Holland later [[TheBusCameBack made her Commissioner]], and as of 14-9, she's also heading the FBI's Special Task Force for the purpose of stopping [[ToCreateAPlaygroundForEvil Alex Dominguez]].]]

* BadassDriver: She sometimes gets to show off how good she is behind the wheel. Even Blaise was frightened and impressed by her skill.
* DaChief: [[spoiler: Until 9-8.]]
* HappilyMarried: The first example among the main characters.
* LesbianCop
* MamaBear
* [[spoiler: PutOnABus]]: It certainly ''looks'' this way after 9-8, [[spoiler: seeing how she resigned [[TakeMeInstead to spare everyone else]]]], but she plays an important role in [[spoiler:Jacob's rescue operation]] in Season 11, and after ''Seth, Lies, and Videotape'', [[spoiler:she [[TheBusCameBack returns to the force as ''the Commissioner'', and isn't about to depart]].]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Amy Samantha Chen]]

The SFPD's data analyst. She has near-genius level IQ, and can work computers lightning-fast. She enjoys working with the police and is usually cheerful. In Season 1, she has a crush on Forensics Specialist Eric Mills, [[spoiler: until he is revealed as The Maskmaker and kidnaps her]]. In Season 8, she [[spoiler: starts dating Ken Greene. After Ken's [[HeroicSacrifice Heroic Sacrifice]] later in the season, [[BreakTheCutie she is never quite the same again]]]]. After an undercover operation in Season 9, she [[spoiler: quits the force to join the renegade 'hacktivist' group Brimstone]].

* ActionGirl: From Season 9 onwards, when she is [[spoiler: in Brimstone]]
* [[spoiler: BreakTheCutie]]: [[spoiler: After Ken's death]] in Season 8, [[spoiler: she begins to act quiet and distant]].
* [[spoiler: DamselInDistress]]: At the end of Season 1.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: She attempts this to save Ken]] in Season 8 [[spoiler: and it sort of works... But in the end it was the other way around, with Ken throwing both himself and Zargoza out of Amy's apartment building to save her]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Kai Sylvester Kalaba]]

Originally from Hawaii, Kai once ran with a motorcycle gang for a brief time, but then sought to become an astronaut. One problem--he wasn't hale enough, courtesy his asthma. He ''did'', however, pass muster as a forensic scientist, and was brought in [[spoiler: to replace Eric Mills after he was [[KillerCop exposed as the Maskmaker]] and apparently drowned]].

* BunnyEarsLawyer: For all the strange tangents he can wind up on, ''no one'' is going to look askance at his forensic aptitude. Then again, his strangeness means that except for Amy and Boone, ''no one'' wants to be near him when they ''don't'' need his forensic aptitude.
* CloudCuckooLander: And how!
* TheCoroner
* DatingCatwoman: He and [[spoiler: [[ClassyCatBurglar Kara Yan]]]] genuinely care for each other.
* HiddenDepths: Kai really is deeper than his nerdy, obnoxious persona.
* JuvenileDelinquent: Was one for a brief portion of his mid-teen years.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Amy, [[FanPreferredCouple no matter how much the Amy*Kai shippers might keen otherwise]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Blaise Ainsley Corso]]

Introduced in 7-8-B. She actually was part of the SFPD before the Maskmaker crisis; she'd simply been gone to assist the FBI with investigating terrorist cells. Yeong called her back so she could have all the manpower she could muster to deal with the approaching Kraken disaster. Corso herself is ''very'' fond of [[CowboyCop shooting first and asking questions later]], to the point her ''name'' has become something of a byword for heedless fervor.

* CowboyCop
* DarkAndTroubledPast: As though her home life wasn't bad enough (absconded father, apparently pinballing through multiple trailer parks, her two elder sisters abandoning their dementia-blasted mother to her, etc.), she was [[spoiler: taken prisoner by an unknown criminal early in her career...only to be released by him, seeing how he had [[ManchurianAgent some sort of plan for her]]]]. It goes FromBadToWorse in 14-9, [[spoiler: with the strong suggestion that the criminal was none other than Alex Dominguez--meaning he thinks ''she's a potential fellow SerialKiller''.]]
* DisappearedDad: When she was ''four''.
* DontYouDarePityMe: She can be ''extremely'' prickly about people wanting her to stop being so self-destructive (for starters, she doesn't even realize she's self-destructive). Her sky-high self-hatred does ''not'' help the case. Small wonder her relationship with Jeremy foundered.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to ''both'' Mal and Jeremy. Scratch that; the ''[[UpToEleven entire SFPD force]]'' is the blue to her red.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Has a ''bad'' case of arachnophobia, which makes the situation with the Spinnerette ''very'' squirmy for her. She doesn't seem to be too fond of clowns or sharks, either.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Jeremy Redbird (Jeremy Hushihumma)]]

Introduced in Season 9. Originally just a particularly rules-oriented police officer in El Dorado, he unintentionally achieved some celebrity status when he brought down an infamous killer with his sharpshooter skills. Not by killing him, but by crippling his vehicle. As a result, [[InternalAffairs Charles Anders]] decided to bring him to help with his crusade against the [[CowboyCop Cowboy Precinct]] of San Francisco. What Anders didn't expect was that Jeremy's resolve to always do the right thing would mature into him understanding that there ''are'' times when "right thing" and "proper thing" [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight don't always overlap]]. After 9-8, he becomes an [=SFPD=] detective.

* ByTheBookCop: Where Mal sine-waves between this and CowboyCop, Jeremy keeps very close to this.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Him [[spoiler: killing Theo Sinclair]] in 9-3 establishes just how '''''very good''''' he is with firearms. And in ''Wild Stag'', during the "zombie" shootdown, he actually gets twenty "kills" down just with his ''carefully aimed pistol'' before Mal, Óscar, or Kai (all using ''much'' heavier artillery) can.
* MagicalNativeAmerican: He likes to occasionally mess with people's ideas with this when he introduces himself, claiming his father was a shaman who specialized in summoning rain-spirits. (He actually runs a sporting goods store.)
* OppositesAttract: Him and Blaise, a couple? One doubts ''anyone'' saw that coming before the end of ''Fourth of July Special''.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Blaise's red.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Shawn Mallory]]

* [[spoiler:BackForTheDead]]: [[spoiler:He's resuscitated by someone in 12-8-P...only to get killed [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness by them after he gives them information about a couple of people.]]]]
* [[spoiler:{{Cult}}]]: [[spoiler: He becomes the leader of one in Season 8.]]
* [[spoiler:DisneyDeath]][=/=][[spoiler:BackFromTheDead]]: [[spoiler: In 8-8, it's revealed that the survived the fall he took at the end of Season 5.]]
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn]]: At the conclusion of Volume 4, after [[spoiler: getting a MindScrew from Genevieve.]]
* [[spoiler:FakingTheDead]]: Not at first. [[spoiler:He really did die after falling from Alcatraz. But after he was resuscitated, he hid from the public eye, letting them think he was dead.]]
* [[spoiler:MindScrew]]: In 4-8, [[spoiler:courtesy of Genevieve.]]
* StalkerWithACrush: Even ''before'' [[spoiler: getting manipulated by Genevieve]], his view towards Natara, ''already'' his lover, was getting worryingly obsessive.
* [[spoiler:UnwittingPawn]]: In [[spoiler:Genevieve]]'s plan.
* [[spoiler:VigilanteMan]]: [[spoiler:Throughout Season 5 as The Hand of Justice]].
* [[spoiler:VillainousBreakdown]]: [[spoiler:He's driven completely insane after being resuscitated by Genevieve and the Salazars after his death in Season 5. Where he was once a by the book law enforcer, he becomes not only a criminal, but also a criminal cult leader by Volume 8.]]

[[folder:Óscar Santos]]

* TheCharmer
* [[spoiler: RomanticFalseLead]]: His primary existence seems to have been [[spoiler: to create more UST between Mal and Natara]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Charles Ryan Anders]]

Anders's original plan was [[UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball football]], not police. But when an ACL injury blockaded him from that, he ended up joining Austin's K-9 unit, ultimately ascending to detective. Unfortunately for him, the rest of the police force was ''quick'' to ostracize him when he informed on his CorruptCop partner. Except for InternalAffairs, that is. He was transferred to San Francisco to deal with the remnants of Jacob Fallon's empire. And somehow, his bosses thought there was something fishy about the SFPD's homicide division.

Cue Anders going into Guilty Until Proven Innocent mode. He even requisitioned Jeremy Redbird, sort of the ultimate ByTheBookCop, to assist in his endeavors to ''permanently'' repair the SFPD...only to find even Redbird rejecting the severity of his ideals. Ever since [[spoiler: Yeong resigned to prevent any other SFPD members from being blacklisted for helping her stop Livewire, Anders has been Acting Captain]]. Thankfully, he's becalmed to a measure since then.

* ByTheBookCop: Very, ''very'' distrustful of anyone short of this. Probably informed by his bad experiences in Austin.
* CareerEndingInjury: Police work was Plan B. Football, before the injury, was Plan A.
* DefectiveDetective: He's divorced. Given how much of a ControlFreak and WellIntentionedExtremist he was early on, this isn't too surprising.
* InternalAffairs
* JadeColoredGlasses / KnightInSourArmor: It is ''not'' easy for him to take the positive view of matters (e.g. [[spoiler: Mal and Natara being a couple; it might jeopardize their focus]]).
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Again, he genuinely wants to obliterate every last bit of corruption and ill-doing in the SFPD. But early on, he was taking ''far'' too much of a black-and-white view.

!!Major Criminals

[[folder:The Connoisseur]]

Real name...Well, [[NoNameGiven we don't have it yet]]. She currently goes by the name Genevieve Marsden Collins, but the only part that can be said to be genuine is the "Collins", on account of it being the name of her late husband. Even from her teens, she was hungry for death, [[spoiler: allying herself with Zero as his adoptive daughter,]] and constantly on the lookout for instinctive killers to groom, succor, and unleash upon the public. All she asks (usually) is that they bring a few trophies back for her collection. Ironically, despite her bloodlust, Genevieve can't actually kill someone with her own hands. No matter how much she'd like to, ''something'' within holds her back, and she is ''deeply'' unhappy about it. That leaves her the next option: kill vicariously through her agents.

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: She considers helping psychopaths escape their dark inner pulses to be monstrous; right and wrong are not mapped to happiness and misery, but to accepting one's true nature (no matter how dark) and hypocrisy. Keeping an incipient killer from killing makes no more sense than condemning ospreys for killing fish.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: It's only ''instinctive'', "artistic" killing that she approves of. Only killing for [[TheMostDangerousGame sport and excitement]], like the Hunter in Season 3, is hopelessly vulgar. [[spoiler: This may be because of how horrified she first was at Alex's inability and unwillingness to keep his bloodlust in check.]]
* FauxAffablyEvil: She does a great job of keeping herself calm and collected, but after TheReveal in 2-8, her inner darkness is ''always'' seeping through.
* GenderMisdirection: ''Brilliantly'' reinforced with the [=SFPD=] characters referring to the Connoisseur unsub throughout vol. 2 as male, seeing how that's what the profiling suggests. Thus, up until the end of the volume, everyone was probably thinking either Senator Collins or Dr. Tanaka was the Connoisseur. Of course, if you look carefully, you'll notice that Volk ''never'' uses a gendered pronoun for the Connoisseur in that time...
* IHaveManyNames: 4-7 reveals that she's gone through ''many'' names in her lifetime, although they all have the j and n sounds close together.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: Alex kills her at the end of 14-7.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: If you pay serious attention to her wishes even a little, there's a near-certainty she'll have you wrapped around her finger in a ''very'' short span of time. It doesn't matter who you are, she'll quickly ferret out what you hold highest, and manipulate you into serving her wishes while (at least thinking you're) achieving your own objectives.
* SerialKillerKiller: After Natara killed the Maskmaker, Genevieve became enthralled with the idea of creating one of these, as such a one would be [[TheSocialDarwinist the supreme predator, the perfect pinnacle of the food chain]]. [[spoiler: She didn't succeed with Natara, but she did a ''lot'' better with turning Shawn into this.]]
* [[ManOfWealthAndTaste Woman of Wealth and Taste]]: Even before meeting Jake Collins, the house she held under the Marsden name is very high-status, and she never suffers herself to enjoy anything less. Although her trophy collection calls the "taste" part into question.
* YouCantFightFate: She doesn't believe in the existence of free will.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Maskmaker]]

Real name: Brian Resler. When growing up, he was the constant subject of [[BigBrotherBully abuse from his elder sister Rebecca]], who thought he was nothing but an unsightly stain. When he was 12, he finally snapped during an excursion to Álcatraz and drowned her, in the process masking her face with sand. Although he was never connected with Rebecca's death (then), he'd already been assigned to the Millbrook Mental Institute on account of his obviously disturbed psyche.

The bad news: He caught [[spoiler: Genevieve]]'s eye. Under her tutelage, he gulled the Institute into thinking his psychosis and sociopathy had been quelled, and exited into San Francisco as [[spoiler: Eric Mills.]] With [[spoiler: Genevieve]]'s connections, he [[spoiler: circumvented the [=SFPD=]'s background checks and became a forensic scientist--allowing him to auto-preclude himself from [=DNA=] checks on murders]]. With a secure screen in place, he began trying to recreate the glory of killing Rebecca and "purifying" her from her viciousness with other redheads. [[spoiler: His true past was discovered by Amy, and he was later killed by Natara.]]

* BewareTheQuietOnes: Even if he was intentionally quiet to avoid drawing extra attention.
* [[spoiler: DeathByIrony: Natara's flare fuses his mask to his face, and his actual death comes from ''drowning in the waters around Álcatraz.'']]
* {{Frameup}}: [[spoiler: He used succinylcholine vials taken from a doctor who'd been arrested--and released--earlier on in order to bait the detectives.]]
* [[spoiler: KillerCop]]
* SerialKiller: Of young, red-headed women who remind him, even if only in visage, of his sister. Power/Control based.

[[folder:Jacob Fallon]]

Originally a highly proficient police officer, Jacob began despairing of ever utterly eradicating crime in San Francisco. So, he decided to set his sights on the best ''possible'' thing--personally get involved in crime in order to keep it under control, with the help of the Floreses. However, Yeong was ''not'' happy with her discovery of Jacob's hypocrisy, and so began a crusade to ''finally'' get him behind bars. In the end, though, between Yeong's constant harrying and the kinds of things [[HeWhoFightsMonsters his alliance with the Floreses required]], he finally turned himself in after Mal was nearly killed in an attempt to extinguish an anti-Flores witness.

On the other hand, with the assistance of [[spoiler: Anna Willis]], he was able to [[MightAsWellNotBeInPrisonAtAll personally keep a large chunk of his empire running properly anyway]]. For all this, his ultimate desire in everything was to keep his family safe. [[CallingTheOldManOut Alienation from his children was an acceptable price.]] In Volume 6, [[spoiler:he actually ''escapes'' during a riot instigated by Mad Stranger, and joins forces with the Sálazars, only to double-cross them]]. That leads to the events of Volume 11, where [[spoiler:Pablo Sálazar [[IHaveYourWife holds Mal hostage]] in order to draw Jacob to his execution. In the end, Jacob is mortally wounded in a helicopter crash, but still manages [[TakingYouWithMe to kill Pablo before he expires]].]]

* AffablyEvil: Jacob may be a criminal, but he's a charismatic and friendly one.
* DirtyCop: And a Dirty ''Police Captain'', no less!
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn]]: [[spoiler:Saving Mal from the corrupt dictator of San Trobida and then becoming TheCavalry to help in Mal's raid on the compound]] in Season 11.
* [[spoiler: DeathEqualsRedemption]]
* [[spoiler: DyingMomentOfAwesome]]: [[spoiler:He not only prepares to make a LastStand as he's mortally injured after a helicopter crash, he makes it worth it by taking out General Sálazar by blowing himself, Sálazar, and many of Sálazar's henchmen up together.]]
* HeWhoFightsMonsters
* MightAsWellNotBeInPrisonAtAll: He doesn't have a LuxuryPrisonSuite, but given that his priority is keeping the San Francisco area safe in general, especially for his children, he doesn't mind. [[spoiler: Until he escapes in Season 6.]]
* [[spoiler:TakingYouWithMe]]: [[spoiler:To Salazar in his DyingMomentOfAwesome]] in 11-8.
* WellIntentionedExtremist

[[folder:Pablo Sálazar]]
[[TheGeneralissimo General and Prime Minister]] of [[BananaRepublic San Trobida]], a tiny South American country. After seizing power, he didn't take long to impel a good chunk of the populace to start producing drugs for him, and start establishing his own drug cartel. During Season 2, he began sending his daughter Esmeralda to the Floreses, ostensibly to help Esteban overthrow Arcangel, but really to forcibly subsume ''their'' cartel into his. In Season 11, finally sick to death of Jacob's [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder trickery]], he has his goons kidnap Mal as a hostage. [[spoiler: This backfires on him in the worst way possible, as Jacob's decision to ensure Mal gets out by [[TrueCompanions recruiting his SFPD comrades]] ultimately results in his death.]]

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: His daughter. [[spoiler: Not that he really internalizes that until ''after'' [[YouKilledMyFather Carlito kills her to avenge Esteban]].]]
* TheGeneralissimo
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: He gets blown up by Jacob.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Boogeyman]]

Real name: Eli Rosely. Eli was effectively [[AbusiveParents his father's--and possibly also his mother's--favorite scapegoat]]. Whenever his father was upset at how his life was turning out, but was unable or unwilling to confront the source, Eli got all the pain in their stead. At least until the night when career outlaw Jeb Cassidy killed Eli's parents right in front of him...but took pity on him and "recruited" him as an assistant in his robberies. During all this, Cassidy [[LimaSyndrome came to care far more for his captive than his parents ever did]], and so arranged to turn himself in and keep Eli from getting any of the heat. Eli, meanwhile, [[StockholmSyndrome had come to idolize the man who saved him from a lifetime of abuse]], and actually thought ''that'' was why his parents were killed. As a result, he became an avenger of abused children in Cassidy's "stead", dressing up as a boogeyman to kill parents he deems deleterious to their children.

* AbusiveParents
* TheApprentice: Eli thinks he was this to Cassidy. [[spoiler: In 12-8, it turns out he plans to make Joy Hoskins ''his'' apprentice. Unfortunately, while Eli can't follow through on account of being consigned to an asylum, Andy Gillum has found her for Genevieve.]]
* CallingCard: The rag dolls. [[spoiler: It's actually Eli's mad attempt to keep the victims' children from feeling lonely.]]
* [[spoiler: ChekhovsGunman: The first we see of him is as an unnamed clerk in 13-1, who just seems to be a random member of a hardware store's workforce. Then Natara pulls his mask off in 13-4...]]
* MagicFeather: [[spoiler: What his mask is for him. Cassidy once told Eli that if he wore something as scary as that, he wouldn't have to fear the boogeyman or the like. Rather, ''they'd'' fear ''him''.]]
* NightmareFace: His mask. [[NightmareFuel And not just in-story, apparently...]]
* PsychopathicManchild: '''''AND HOW.''''' Type C--he doesn't have much trouble fitting in with society and being a member of the workforce. However, the things he likes to do (besides the whole avenger-of-the-abused thing) are definitely childish. Just look at his treehouse.
* SerialKiller: Arguably, he doesn't feel a ''chronic'' need to kill; he's just triggered whenever he sees unambiguous evidence of chronic child abuse. ''Completely'' Mission-based.
* StockholmSyndrome
* WellIntentionedExtremist

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Spinnerette]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Firstborn]]

Real name: Alex Dominguez. Originally, he was known only through Zero referring to him as Genevieve's adopted son who died young. By season 13, though, this is ''completely'' overturned. He's Genevieve's ''biological'' son, he's very much alive, and he's even more death-obsessed as she is. Not to mention ''much'' more willing to kill with his own hands. Apparently, his goal is to take revenge on her for forcing him to run away. [[spoiler: In reality, he wants to get ''all'' her other Lilim to start killing right away, and from there go on to produce [[ToCreateAPlaygroundForEvil a world-wide paradise for killers]]. The real reason for killing her, or at least the foremost one, is so she can't renew her shackles.]]

* AxCrazy
* BloodKnight: There is ''no'' place he's happier than while on a battlefield. Whoever he's opposing ''won't'' be so happy, [[OneManArmy though]]. [[spoiler: He seriously believes that the battlefield is the only proper form of human existence, on top of that.]]
* EvilCannotComprehendGood
* EvilFeelsGood / ForTheEvulz: It's difficult to say which matches him more. For the most part, he doesn't feel much of anything when killing...unless it's on a battlefield, with ''lots'' of carnage and death. ''Then'', he's ecstatic.
* TheFaceless: He has yet to reveal how he changed his face, since he thinks his bandages still make for an excellent effect on those who meet him.
* InTheBlood: It seems he inherited his bloodlust from Genevieve. [[spoiler: To make matters worse, his biological father is ''Zero''. So ''double'' the inherited madness.]]
* [[spoiler: SelfMadeOrphan: He kills Genevieve at the end of 14-7. On top of that, he would have killed Angel Dominguez--''his adoptive father''--if the Ghost [[MercyKill hadn't beaten him]] [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled to it]].]]
* SerialKiller: And he ''glories'' in it.
* TheSocialDarwinist
* [[spoiler: ToCreateAPlaygroundForEvil: He seriously believes that all humans are inherently as bloodthirsty as he is, and only abstain because of the law's threat to punish them. His broadcast to awaken all the other Lilim is ultimately his first stage of reproducing the pre-civilization "paradise" of wanton slaughter.]]
