The Character Sheet for Far Cry 3
open/close all folders
Played By: Gianpaolo Venuta
Talented, intelligent, and directionless, Jason Brody has drifted from one job to another without finding any that could sustain his interest. He instead devotes his passion to extreme sports (the sky-diving that landed on Rook is just one example among many) and his girlfriend, Liza, though they have clashed in the past on his unwillingness to find a place in life.
On Rook, Jason must at last commit to a goal - rescuing his friends. In this he discovers a capacity for violence that frightens even himself, a remarkable talent for survival against overwhelming odds, an intense need for vengeance against those who have wronged him...and perhaps a place where he feels he can belong. But all these things demand a price. Whether he can or is willing to pay it remains to be determined.

An only child brought up in a dysfunctional household, Liza Snow was always the responsible one. Passionate, smart, and sensible, she enjoys helping others conquer their problems. After initially being attracted to Grant's self-possession, she saw Jason's untapped potential and fell in love. She passionately believes in Jason and sees great potential in him when no one else does, even him.
- Distressed Damsel: Twice. Once, when she's held for a ransom video by Vaas, ending with a fire in the house where she is kept. Later, at the hands of the Rakyat.
- Nice Girl
- Slashed Throat: If Jason kills her.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Though all the survivors get in on the act a little, she's clearly the most disturbed and upset by Jason's free-fall into madness and doesn't hold back on letting him know.
The youngest of the three Brody brothers.
- Ace Pilot: The reason Jason and the others are on the island is to celebrate him getting his pilot's license.
- Action Survivor
- Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique: At the hands of Jason himself as Jason is infiltrating Hoyt's privateers. For extra fun, there's recognition on both their parts a split second before Jason has to crack Riley in the jaw to avoid being given away and continue beating him mercilessly.
- Not Quite Dead: Keith says he saw Riley die, shot dead in an escape attempt. He was shot, and he fell, but the bullet didn't actually kill him. The privateers captured him to try and learn why Jason and his friends were on Rook.
Played By: Lane Edwards
Everything Grant does, he does well. All-American good looks, a killer work ethic and nuanced social skills carried him easily to the team captain position on the high school and college swim teams. After graduating, he joined the army reserve while training for the national swim team. As the eldest son of a household missing a father, Grant protects his friends and brothers.
Daisy Lee was Grant Brody's girlfriend and is part of the group of friends Jason must rescue throughout the game. She has a similar characteristics to Grant that may have drawn them together—strength of will, athleticism (as a champion swimmer) and extreme confidence in herself that she often lends to others to help them. However, she lacks his military experience and has no fondness for violence.
- Action Survivor: She is the only Action Survivor other than Jason to escape her predicament on her own. Going by her injuries, she was also attacked at least once by either a tiger or leopard during her escape, but still managed to get away. The only reason she needs help when Jason finds her is because she didn't know she was running through a field of toxic plants while bleeding, and was poisoned.
- Damsel out of Distress: Not only is she tough as nails (see above), but she quickly gets over the death of her boyfriend, Jason's brother, Grant and quickly starts thinking about ways of getting the survivors off the island (see Wrench Wench), similar in some ways to Jason himself, just with less killing.
- Mistaken Identity: Doctor Earnhardt confuses her for "Agnes", his deceased daughter... who died at the age of two.
- Olympic Swimmer: Or at least a swimming champion.
- Wrench Wench: Works on a boat for the others to escape in.
Oliver Carswell is a good friend of Jason, rich and an avid drug enthusiast. It's implied from the intro that he was the one who paid for the vacation which landed him and his friends on Rook Island.
- Action Survivor: Though a rich kid and stoner, Oliver will actually snatch up a fallen AK-47 when Jason rescues him and return fire. He still needs Jason to cover him to escape, but he's no slouch and adjusts very quickly to the situation, readily manning the escape boat.
- The Stoner
James A. Woods
Keith Ramsay is a friend of Jason and a successful Wall Street banker. He decides to take some time off from his demanding job to go travelling with his friends.
- Bloody Handprint: A use of the trope with unconventional (but similarly horrifying) symbolism behind it. Before he was sold to Buck, Keith's shirt was clean white. When Jason finds him, it's marked all over with dark red handprints and stays that way, and Keith flinches from almost any touch. It's not hard to join the dots.
- Break the Haughty: Flashbacks show him as confident, belligerent, and dismissive of any perceived weakness. After his experiences on Rook, he's...no longer like that.
- Distressed Dude: For a while, courtesy of Buck.
- Fight Magnet: Implied in a drug-induced flashback.
- Rape as Drama: Heavily implied from Buck. And no double standard here.
- Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: According to the Survival Guide, "he was caught cheating on several tests, but his pops bailed him out."
- Unreliable Narrator: He saw Riley get shot and fall, and assumed he died. However, Riley is proven to be very much alive near the end of the game.
Agent Willis Huntley
Agent Willis Huntley is a CIA operative who provides Jason Brody with information about the islands and its inhabitants.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Willis is a very strange man, but he has managed to gather quite a bit of information on the people, the native floura and fauna and locations on the island. He also manages to maintain a link with an agent in deep undercover in Hoyt's operation and knows enough to reliably point Jason in the right direction. It's pretty impressive he's managed to do this without getting his head chopped off at some point.
- Cool Shades
- Cultural Posturing: He seems unable to go for three sentences without comparing America to something foreign and distasteful; at one point he goes on a rant about how chewing gum being illegal in Singapore is "declaring war on Uncle Sam". It's not clear if this jingoism is how he always was, or if Rook Island has gotten to him.
- Deadpan Snarker: Probably the islander who exhibits the trait most strongly.
- Eaglelander: Type 1, heavily.
- Expy: Bears more than a passing resemblance to Det. Sonny Crockett from Miami Vice.
- Gosh Dang It to Heck!: He swears copiously... with g-rated swearwords. "Pardon my French."
- The Informant
- Lemony Narrator: Judging by the use of his Catch Phrase on your PDA, Willis is responsible for providing a lot of information about the things that you find on the islands. He makes some very unusual comparisons of animals. For instance;
Manta Rays are American animals. They're strong. They soar like eagles underwater. They're always on the go. And fish from third world countries clean their gills for no pay.
- Put on a Bus: He has to go to Russia to help as a part of Task Force 141, implied to be "Operation Kingfisher" from the third Modern Warfare, so he drops Jason off on the southern island and then leaves.
- Sudden Sequel Heel Syndrome: Willis returns in Far Cry 4, where he tricks Ajay into killing a collection of CIA assets to remove the American footprint in Kyrat, then essentially sells him out to Yuma.
Sam Becker was an infiltrated agent posing as a high ranking Privateer for Hoyt Volker through Rook Islands CIA agent Willis Huntley. Sam was born in Texas, who then moved and was raised in Germany due to his father, a Navy SEAL, being stationed there.
- All Germans Are Nazis: Averted In-Universe. He is automatically believed to be villainous enough to be one of Hoyt's men simply because he is German. He's not really even German. His dad was a SEAL, and Sam was born when he had been recalled to Texas. Shortly thereafter, he was redeployed to Germany, so that's where Sam grew up. Precisely how he became so extremely German, speaking with a thick accent and using German words so regularly, is not clear, but he might have been influenced by the islands the same way that everyone else was.
- Artistic License – History: In-Universe. He thinks that "Uncle Sam" is one of the founding fathers of the United States of America.
- Bald of Awesome
- Badass: The rest of Hoyt's men regard him as one.
- Badass Beard
- Battle Cry: BLITZKRIEG!
- Blood Knight: He calls an assault on a huge enemy encampment "the best day of his life".
- Deep Cover Agent
- Eleventh Hour Ranger: He's your primary ally on the southern island, which is only visited in the latter third of the game.
- Fake Nationality: Sort of. He has a German accent because he grew up there, but he was born in Texas.
- Gratuitous German
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: During a poker game with Hoyt, who had found out about the plan to kill him.
- Nice Guy: One of the few characters that genuinely cares about the well-being of Jason and Riley, outside what he stands to gain from said well-being.
- Punny Name: Sam. As in Uncle Sam.
- Screaming Warrior: Sometimes.
- Tattooed Crook: Subverted.
Doctor Alec Earnhardt
Alec Earnhardt basks in a artificial glow of life generated by the pills he takes daily. Originally hailing from Oxford, he went sailing around the world after personal tragedy, ultimately discovering Rook Island and all the wonderful hallucinogens and narcotics growing among the local flora. He set up a lab on the northwestern end of the island and now makes his living making and selling drugs to clients throughout the area- including Vaas.
- Almost Dead Guy: Tells Jason where his friends were taken and by whom before dying of his wounds.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander
- Cool Old Guy
- Dr. Feelgood
- Drowning My Sorrows: One of the reasons he got into drugs in the first place.
- Erudite Stoner
- Expy: A brilliant, cloudcuckoolander doctor with a German background and a penchant for psychotropics? Sounds a lot like Fringe's Walter Bishop.
- Frontier Doctor: While not normally employed to act as this, Earnhardt does fall into this role while having to treat Daisy for exposure to poisonous plants.
- In Universe Nickname: Dennis calls him "The Colonist."
- Killed Off for Real: By the Rakyat, who kidnap Jason's friends.
- Mad Doctor: He's a nice enough person (at least, in comparison with most major island inhabitants), but he has obvious mental health problems and samples the pharmaceutical wares he mixes and sells to the pirates. He's still a good guy, though.
- Nice Guy: He can look plenty creepy (picture above being a prime example) and is a bit touched in the head, but a proves himself to be a perfect decent guy.
- Thoroughly Mistaken Identity: While looking after Daisy and still a little hazy from his last round of drugs, Earnhardt actually mistakes her for his dead daughter, Agnes; it's for this reason that he agrees to let Jason's friends hide on his property.
Known to the rebels as their warrior goddess, Citra is cloaked in the mystery of old ritual and superstition. Charismatic and beautiful, she yearns for power and wishes to return her tribe to its former glory. Citra doesn't like to lose and will do whatever it take to see her wishes fulfilled. Her followers believe in her, and more importantly, she believes in herself.
- A Real Man Is a Killer: Her philosophy.
- Bare Your Midriff
- Cain and Abel: With Vaas. It goes both ways.
- Please Don't Leave Me: Her last words if you choose to save your friends and Dennis accidentally kills her, mostly word for word.
- Does Not Like Shoes
- Going Native: Like her brother Vaas, Citra is an outsider, but she really took to the Rakyat culture, to the point that she became the effective leader of the Rakyat and has a temple where she's worshipped as a warrior goddess.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: To Jason in the "Kill Liza" ending. Accidentally on the receiving end from Dennis in the "Save Friends" ending.
- In Love with Your Carnage
- Ms. Fanservice: Has two topless scenes, and the rest of the time she isn't wearing a whole lot more.
- Proud Warrior Race Gal: To the point she kidnaps Jason's girlfriend, surviving brother, and the rest of his friends, and forces him to murder them all to cut his ties to his old life. And then murdering Jason if he goes through with killing them, and subsequently has sex with her, believing she's been impregnated with "The Perfect Warrior", who she wishes to lead the people of Rakyat.
- Rebel Leader: To the Rakyat.
- The Social Darwinist: In a sense, as she wanted the love of her own brother because she thought he was the only warrior strong enough for her, and only wanted Jason after he wiped out Vaas' Pirates and Volker's Mercenaries. The reason? After having sex with Jason, (and subsequently stabbing him after realizing she's pregnant), she claimed it was all to give birth to the "Perfect Warrior", who would command the destiny of the Rook Islands and the Rakyat. A Proud Warrior Race Gal, indeed.
- Taking the Bullet: Well, more like Taking The Knife, but in the "Save Friends" ending, she leaps between Jason and Dennis before the latter could stab the former, impaling herself in the process.
- The Vamp: As shown by the "Kill Liza" ending, she "loves" Jason's warrior side, and kills him as soon as she thinks she is pregnant with the "ultimate warrior".
- Yandere: She is very possessive of Jason.
- Stalker with a Test Tube: She guts Jason upon realizing she's pregnant with his child, but reassures him that their child would command the destiny of the Rakyat as the "The Perfect Warrior", and even whispers "You won." right before the screen blacks out. And from her tone of voice, she truly believes her own words and that Jason would be glad to take them into death.
- In the 'Save Friends' ending, she goes ballistic once Jason starts cutting his friends loose. In spite all of that, however, she throws herself upon Dennis's knife if Jason rejects her, even though she, of all people, logically would've taken his decision the worst. Whatever else one can say, Citra cares about Jason. In her own way.
Charles Malik Whitfield
Born and raised in Liberia, Dennis Rogers is no stranger to war and poverty. He eventually left his home and immigrated to America. Ten years later, he left, disillusioned due to the constant alienation he felt there. After drifting from job to job he found his way to Rook Island and met Citra. He embraced her cause and proved himself as a dedicated warrior.
- Always Second Best: Dennis is an excellent leader, a great warrior, and a respected believer in the Rakyat philosophy. None of that matters when Jason comes to town.
- Berserk Button: Rejecting Citra. It may be fuelled just a little by jealousy.
- Blood Knight: It comes with being a Rakyat.
- Does Not Like Shoes
- The Dragon: Implied to be Citra's right hand before Jason starts to come into his own.
- Going Native
- In Vino Veritas: He gets very, very drunk indeed after Jason's full initiation into the Rakyat and rambles a bit about his past.
- Magical Negro: He's the one who saves Jason at the beginning of the game and tells him what he needs to do in order to survive on the Island and to save his friends. Given that he's also an outsider that became a Tattooed Warrior, it's a wonder why he didn't try to save the inhabitants from the Pirates himself.
- The trope is Deconstructed as it seems fairly obvious that Dennis was The Dragon and Number Two to Citra before Jason. By helping Jason, he's unwittingly put himself out of a job.
- My God, What Have I Done?: If he kills Citra.
- Nice Guy
- Number Two: To Citra.
- Subordinate Excuse: From his lines, his admiration of Citra goes way beyond loyalty. She's obviously not interested.
- Please Don't Leave Me/Please Wake Up: Begs the former of Citra's corpse if he kills her, meaning the latter.
- Sink-or-Swim Mentor: More or less. He tattoos Jason in his sleep, hands him a gun, and tells him to go kill pirates.
- Specs of Awesome
- What the Hell, Hero?: Delivers one to Jason if he rejects Citra's love and refuses to kill Liza before trying to kill him.
Played By: Michael Mando
Simply put, Vaas is downright nuts. He's also violent, unpredictable, mercurial, prideful, and extremely dangerous. Vaas started on this downward spiral when he became addicted to drugs brought to Rook Island by Hoyt Volker. He eventually joined up with the self-appointed warlord after Hoyt promised him power and wealth. Now, on an island of madness, he is the most feared madman of them all.
- Antagonist in Mourning: In the live-action vids, Vaas actually seems quite upset when he finds that Christopher has died as a result of his torture, and when one of his pirates interrupts his moment of grief, he even sounds a little choked-up. Then the pirate tells him about the skydivers that have just landed on the island, whereupon Vaas immediately loses all interest in Chris and runs off to inspect his newest playthings—pausing only to bury what's left of the previous one.
- Averted when he believes that he's successfully killed Jason; Vaas celebrates by massacring an entire village.
- Authority Equals Asskicking
- Ax-Crazy: He'd give The Joker a run for his money in the psychotic department.
- Beard of Evil
- Break Them by Talking: His primary way of dealing with his enemies before he kills them or puts them up for ransom.
- Cain and Abel: With Citra. It goes both ways.
- Death Seeker: More daring people to do it than actually wishing for it, though.
- Delinquent Hair
- Disc One Final Boss: Dies about two-thirds of the way through the game, despite being the plot-driving villain until that point.
- Doppelgänger Attack: Sort of. In the lead up to his death, Jason has to kill hallucinatory Vaas copies that come at him with knives, randomly appearing, and sometimes on fire.
- The Dragon: To Hoyt.
- Dynamic Entry: His favorite way of greeting Jason is to pop up abruptly and commit violence upon his person. A significant number of the times Jason passes out are accompanied by Vaas's beaming face.
- Evil Counterpart: Numerous hints across the game seem to imply Vaas was in a situation much like Jason's not so long ago: that of a foreigner forced to adapt to a strange island and taken in by a warrior culture that sought to change his decadent ways. In his case however, he snapped under the pressure, struck out on his own, and eventually joined up with Hoyt.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has a prominent scar running from his left eyebrow up over his forehead and into his scalp, ending roughly halfway to the back of his head. Though it doesn't seem to have affected any nerves or muscles and it's not that disfiguring, its placement does make a lot of his facial expressions that extra little bit more kooky.
- Hair-Trigger Temper/Mood-Swinger: It's impossible to predict what'll send him from smiling and speaking softly to shrieking expletives and threatening to set people on fire. By the same token, it's impossible to be sure what'll send him back the other way.
- The Heavy: Hoyt might be his boss but it's Vaas who is usually directly confronting Jason.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice
- I Am A Humanitarian: Not personally, but he forces this upon some of the people in captivity for giggles.
- Ink-Suit Actor: Vaas looks identical to Michael Mando, to the point where the live-action promotional videos feature him.
- Large Ham: Mr. Mando is obviously having the time of his life.
- Pop-Cultured Badass: Like Jason, Vaas often quotes movies, although his timing and choice of reference runs more toward surreal than snarky.
- Puzzle Boss: The quickest way to end the final boss fight with him is to just run past the clones.
- Pyrrhic Victory: Vaas claims that he and Jason are "fucked" no matter who wins. This is likely a commentary on the monsters that both of them have become. No matter which one of them dies, the other will have to live with the horrors of what he's seen and done. Jason actually acknowledges this in the ending.
- Ruthless Modern Pirate
- Sir Swears-a-Lot
- Sophisticated as Hell: He tends to pepper his philosophical monologues with profanity.
- Start of Darkness: Hoyt's corruption, by way of money and drugs.
- Straw Nihilist: His "Definition Of Insanity" speech gives him shades of this. Contrary to everyone else he sees doing "the exact same fucking thing over and over again" hoping this would affect change, Vaas has since decided to simply do and take whatever he wants, whenever he wants, as this sets him apart from everyone else and makes him, by his own definition, not insane.
- Terms of Endangerment: Persistently refers to Jason as hermano - "brother". Knowing his feelings for his actual sibling, the term becomes even more ominous.
- What Could Have Been: Vaas wasn't originally part of the game. His actor impressed Ubisoft so much during auditions they created the character, rewriting chunks of the plot accordingly, and gave him near constant focus in advertising materials!
- Wicked Cultured: Though not to the same degree as Buck and Hoyt. Vaas' "Definition of Insanity" quote is one attributed to Benjamin Franklin (though the exact origin is a bit fuzzy; it's also associated with Albert Einstein, author Rita Mae Browne and a Chinese proverb) and while not precisely canon, he prepares a dinner with some first-class presentation for his captive during the live action promotional videos, and briefly holds forth on the philosophical subject of whether all men are brothers.
- Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: While it's really a case of his eyes being a very light hazel, some of the promotional material are definitely invoking this trope.
- You Monster!: Citra calls what he's become a monster, though he wasn't one before.
Bambi "Buck" Hughes
An ex-Australian military man, Buck is a sadistic murderer and slaver who is seeking an ancient Chinese knife. After being kicked out of the Australian military for brutality, Buck made his way to Rook Island, where he made his name as a gun-for-hire.
- Awesome Aussie: And former military.
- Beard of Evil
- Depraved Homosexual
- Embarrassing First Name: Bambi, which is probably why everyone calls him Buck.
- The Dragon: To Vaas.
- Dragon with an Agenda: He wants that knife and Jason bad and he's willing to send Jason to kill pirates (That he's probably affiliated with) for him to get both.
- Famous Last Words: "This is some fucked up foreplay, eh?"
- Faux Affably Evil: Sometimes friendly, sometimes vicious, sometimes vicious with an oily veneer of friendliness. He especially exhibits a fondness for toying with Jason's emotions - enraging him, chastising him for being impolite when his temper snaps, describing how Keith will suffer as punishment for Jason's impudence, then telling Jason to cheer up or simmer down as though they're friends.
- Foreshadowing: When Jason first hears about Buck, he makes a joke "His name is Buck and he likes to..." After going through the sacred knife trials to save Keith, you can guess what Buck has been doing with him the whole time, because he tries to do the same to Jason.
- I Love the Dead "I'll take you bloody if you like. I like my meat rare".
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: With the very knife he had Jason fetch for him.
- Knife Nut: The only weapon he is ever seen using is a combat knife, and his interactions with Jason are centered around an obsession with an ancient Chinese dagger, which Buck considers a work of beautiful art.
- Offscreen Teleportation: Throughout his arc of the game, which is repeatedly lampshaded by Jason.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: Everyone just calls him Buck.
- Professional Killer
- Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil
- Sociopathic Soldier: Why he was kicked out of the military.
- Soft-Spoken Sadist
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Half. His shirt is always unbuttoned and looks a size too small.
- Wicked Cultured: Mixed with Sophisticated as Hell. He makes Jason stand there and listen as he recounts how the knife wound up on Rook, a story that involves ancient Chinese history, gets genuinely angry when Jason refers to the Chinese knife as a knife (it's a piece of fucking art, mate!), quotes Robert Frost, and generally exhibits cunning along with all the evil.
Hoyt Volker is the primary antagonist of Far Cry 3. He is described as 'Armageddon' compared to Vaas and works in slave trafficking and murder as well as drugs. He is the leader of the Privateers and also rules the South Island.
- Amoral Afrikaner: Seth Effrican dyed-in-the-bone, and an exceptionally cruel and brutal man, though unlike most examples he isn't a mercenary.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: He's pretty good with a knife. Jason's earlier knife fight with Buck is pretty much a Curbstomp Battle, whereas in the final fight Hoyt actually puts up a fairly even duel. That is, assuming that Brody didn't hallucinate him fighting Hoyt as he actually killed the guards, explaining why they were dead when the boss fight ended.
- Big Bad: Takes up the role following Vaas' death.
- Bigger Bad: Until Vaas is killed.
- Corrupt Corporate Executive: Granted, the fact that he deals in human trafficking and the drugs trade should make him corrupt by default, but the detachment and professionalism with which he talks about his business really cements his status as one.
- The Corrupter: To Vaas.
- The Dreaded: Everyone on the islands is terrified of him, with the exception of his privateers.
- Faux Affably Evil: Is often, on the surface, very friendly to his men, speaking to them personally and inviting them up to his personal office for a private talk if he likes their potential. He also has no problem simultaneously demonstrating the punishment for disloyalty by burning a man alive in a hotbox or casually destroying a cruise ship full of innocent people he tried to sell.
- Foil: To his own Dragon, Vaas. Where Vaas is an unpredictable, deranged lunatic who is as likely to kill someone in a frenzy as he is to have an amicable chat with them about the nature of insanity, Hoyt is a relatively calm, calculating, stable businessman with a pragmatic approach to problems. Where Vaas falls victim to his own madness at times, proving to be Genre Blind often when dealing with Jason, Hoyt is much more Dangerously Genre Savvy. This even extends to their relative domains and minions. The northern island ruled by Vaas is wild and overgrown, with lots of dangerous animals and pirates roaming about without much in the way of organization. The southern island ruled by Hoyt is more controlled, with more open grassland, urbanized areas, military-style outposts, and frequent patrols by well-armed and organized privateers.
- Final Boss
- Freudian Excuse: Technically, it's only in his character bio, but Hoyt apparently had a "a brutal upbringing by his father, a South African mining boss". Upon growing up, Hoyt "sought to outdo him", and did so by subverting and murdering the original leader of the Pirates, before expanding across the Rook Islands as gun runner, sex trafficker, and leader of a ruthless legion of mercenaries.
- Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: In his words, smoking won't be what kills people on the islands.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice
- Knew It All Along: The reason why Sam dies and his plan fails. It's not made clear precisely when Hoyt figured out who was who, but by the time they reach the poker game, he knows Sam is a traitor and who "Foster" really is.
- Man of Wealth and Taste: Downplayed, but visible. He wears a blazer and proper button-down shirt as opposed to his mooks, who generally wear tattered, casual clothes. He also has a taste for opera, as well as fine spirits and cigars. And he has a very nice, stylish, well-kept office on the island, one that wouldn't be out of place for a CEO of a successful company - which, of course he is.
- Politically Incorrect Villain: He hates the Rakyat to the point where he orders his men to shoot them on sight.
- Suddenly Shouting
- Underestimating Badassery: He assumed that his own knife skills and a dozen bodyguards would be enough to take care of Jason. He was wrong.
- Jason and Sam also on the receiving end of this. When they sat down on at the poker game, they both expected that they had the perfect cover, and that Hoyt didn't suspect a thing. Wrong on both counts.
- Villainous Breakdown: Has a progressive one as Jason dismantles his organization. Jason even calls him out as afraid in their final battle.
- Wicked Cultured: A big fan of Wagnerian orchestra. He even has a preference for European rather than American orchestral renditions, claiming the brass section in the latter to be "too bombastic".
