* SchmuckBait: [[spoiler:When the player meets her again in Mordoc's Gate, she's had an EvilCostumeSwitch (see above for the details) that makes it painfully obvious what's befallen her. In fact, the player knows by this point that the two main villains are vampires. [[FailedASpotCheck But the player character will fail to notice the warning signs and address her as if nothing were amiss. You're just following her to the BigBad's sanctum, knowing she'll turn on you at any moment.]]]]

* AffablyEvil: Until you break her toys, that is... though she's affable again later.

to:

* AffablyEvil: Until you break her toys, that is... though she's affable again later. Illustrated nicely in her voice-acted letter to "[[{{Foreshadowing}} Lady F]]", in which she politely, cheerfully, casually corresponds with her fellow villain and asks to be provided with more more bodies she can stitch into horrifying monstrosities. Preferably live ones.



* MaskOfSanity: She's completely insane and about as evil, but keeps a well-mannered lid on it until one presses her BerserkButton.



* SoftSpokenSadist: She has a calm, soothing voice that [[VillainousBreakdown doesn't survive her losing her temper]].

* VillainousWidowsPeak: In case you need more reasons not to trust the MadScientist who turned her manor into a bloody laboratory.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Averted and played straight. The rules of the tabletop game states that only Elves or Half-Elves can be Arcane Archers, which is still a prestige class by the way. But that's going by the Third Edition Rules; the older Second Edition Ruleset didn't have the racial limitation on the prestige class that 3 and 3.5 have.

* {{Badass}}: Undeniably.


* GenreSavvy: Tries to enforce the "do-not-split-the-party" approach to the heroes [[spoiler: and Kharne]] while in Mordoc's keep. At one point he still "stays behind" to stop the seemingly never-ending shadows from pursuing the heroes.

* LadyInRed: She's dressed most entirely in red.


* NoSell: Everyone else has to be very careful when traps are around, be them spiked floors of fireball-spitting machines. Borador can render them useless by getting close enough and tapping the square button, making certain dungeons easiers.

* TookALevelInBadAss: Everyone has an upgrade, but Borador's most noticeable, as he gives him more melee-oriented techniques, let him use Great Weapons and gives him unique shield abilities.

* BaitAndSwitchBoss: [[spoiler:When fought in combat, you'll find out that all she can do is to throw explosives at you and slap you, and she'll probably die faster than her bodyguards. Then her corpse bulbble and hisses, and suddenly she's back as a disgusting black abomination, much more of a challenge than before.]]

* MindControl: She did this to her Zentharim pets, but it doesn't work on the hero. In battle, her mind attacks are represented as a weird-colored spray which stuns and damages the player (and, if close enough, can be fatal).

* GiantSpaceFleaFromNoWhere: You were told about the pirates, who then turns out to be undead, but noone mentioned the Kuo Toa. On the other hand after seeing the temple Droptobl himself was easier to see coming.
