* HouseHusband: His wife is shown to be the main breadwinner of the family. While he is mocked bit for it a bit InUniverse, the show itself makes it clear that he's a noble, genuinly nice guy willing to put his own life at risk to save others.

* OneHourWorkWeek: He writes ScienceFiction books for children, but isn't actually shown doing much writing.

[[ExtremelyShortTimeSpan the fairly short time span of the series,]] and 3. his stressfull situation giving him writer's block.

* {{Technophobia}}: Mostly [[AvertedTrope averted.]] She's actually very impressed by modern technology and is looking forward to see some of it be invented. However, she still prefers looking up information at the libary the old-fashioned way rather than using the Internet.

* AffablyEvil: While he ''can'' be pretty rude towards Jade, he is usually very polite, has nothing against our heroes personally and is fine with helping them as long as it advances his own goals. His big monolouge about his plan is very matter-of-fact and not nearly as gloating as one might expect. He even invites Jo's parents over for ASpotOfTea while listening to it.

* WouldHurtAChild: Assuming young teenagers count, he has no qualms about locking up both Jo and Nicholas in his house with the intention to send the former to a womens farm and hand over the latter to the Bolsheviks, who would undoubtably have him executed.
