In the Novel:
- Alas, Poor Scrappy: An In-Universe example. Richard's grief over Bunny is slow to be realised (given the circumstances) but apparent throughout the book.
- Awesome Ego: Henry, thanks to his Magnificent Bastard status.
- Evil Is Sexy: Camilla is dedicated to Henry in spite of his personality flaws.
- Ho Yay: Henry is deeply devoted to Julian, and takes his departure very hard.
He turned his blind, unseeing eyes upon me."I loved him more than my own father," he said. "I loved him more than anyone in the world."
- Richard telling Camilla he loved Henry too.
- Magnificent Bastard: Henry is the classic cold-but-charismatic mastermind.
- Moral Event Horizon: Henry plans, carries out and covers up Bunny's murder. The rest of the group helps, more or less.
