* AceCustom: While his Geirail is still as much of TheAllegedCar as any other, he's added a couple of small quality-of-life adjustments to make things a little easier for himself. It has replacement parts from other machines to modify its signature, meaning that the enemy won't know what model of suit is coming after them and can't prepare accordingly, and it has a unique pickaxe that lets it relegate its axe-shield to EmergencyWeapon status.
* AcePilot: He's good enough in a suit to excel despite piloting a Geirail, a Graze predecessor whose only merit at the time was being a modern mobile suit in a world that no longer had the ability to produce Ahab Reactors themselves anymore, and these days is the most budget of budget mercenary weapons.

* AnAxeToGrind: Two of them. There's the Geirail's standard melee weapon, a shield on its forearm that can fold in half to become a broad-bladed hand-axe, and a non-standard pickaxe that Galan uses as his primary close-quarters weapon.
* BaddieFlattery: To Akihiro, while they fight. It's surprisingly sincere and helpful, given his disdain for child soldiers.
* BeardOfEvil: Galan's a rough, ruthless man responsible for terrible things, and his heavy beard emphasises his uncivilised vibe.
* BloodKnight: Appears to really love battles just for the sake of the fight. And to him it doesn't matter what you fight for, be it for revenge, to protect someone or something, or something you believe in, as long as you fight.

* HiddenDepths: He's not just a manipulative killer, as his final episode shows - everything he did to himself and everyone else was out of loyalty and respect for his commander, Rustal, and his ideals, and he spends much of his final fight offering apparently sincere, well-intentioned advice to Akihiro on why he's too nice for mercenary work and should consider a career change before it's too late.

* WeakButSkilled: The most extreme example in the show. He flies a Geirail, a hopelessly obsolete training suit, and yet can put up a credible fight against monsters like Akihiro and [=McGillis=] through pure piloting skill.

He then decides to take some further action, [[spoiler:and orders an assassination on Lafter]], after which Tekkadan breaks off their ties with Teiwaz in order to deliver a much deserved NoHoldsBarredBeatdown to Jasley.
