* SubmissiveBadass: He may well be the most dangerous Baskerville aside from Glen, yet he always looks to Lottie for his cues.


* SugarAndIcePersonality: As stoic and aloof as he might be, he had a minor soft spot for Gilbert back when they were master and servant, not to mention a very clear soft spot for his dear sister Lacie. Unfortunately, he had a soft spot for Jack, who ''was'' his best friend, as well. That last example [[{{Understatement}} didn't end well for him.]]

* ObliviousToLove: Oswald is completely clueless about the affections of Lottie and Miranda Barma. While the latter may be excusable since she was obsessed with [[CollectorOfTheStrange collecting her]] [[NightmareFetishist crushes' heads]] and only moved in the shadows so as to secretly secure her prey, the former was [[LuminescentBlush extremely obvious.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Becomes disturbingly similar to Jack in his obsession with setting right what Jack did wrong.


* JapanesePronouns: Watashi.


* DarkIsNotEvil: The Baskervilles are strongly associated with [[EldritchLocation the Abyss]], which is populated by [[HumanoidAbomiation vari]][[AnimalisticAbomination ous]] [[EldritchAbomination abominations]]. However, they -as a whole- aren't a malicious organization, and actually try to protect the world from the dangers of the Abyss. They aren't precisely ''good'' people, but they're far from evil.

* BigScrewedUpFamily: Even during their peaceful golden years their required LawfulNeutral position lead them to do some pretty messed up things for the sake of [[WellIntentionedExtremist keeping the world balanced and orderly]], including locking up and killing their own family members because an old lady EldritchAbomination who lived in their basement told them to.
* TheChosenMany: The reason why they're Baskervilles is not because of blood ties but rather because of being chosen by the lights of the Abyss, later revealed to be sent by the Jury.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Many of them, namely Fang, Doug, and possibly Lottie, really aren't that bad, except for the fact that they're unflinchingly loyal to the BigBad. And then it turns out that they didn't serve the the BigBad, but were each a HeroAntagonist all along.
** Moreso morally gray antagonist. Though some of their early actions can be sympathized with, many of them get to a point where their actions are hardly anymore justifiable than Jack's.
* FiveBadBand: The five named Baskervilles (sans [[PosthumousCharacter Lacie]]) form one of these, although there are more Baskervilles than just the five of them.
** BigBad: Glen/Oswald Baskerville. Zigzagged later and ultimately averted; Oswald was not the one who started the Tragedy but had [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope jumped so far off the Slippery Slope]] anyways that he stays an antagonist up until his final chapter (just a more sympathetic one).
** TheDragon: Lottie -- Though Glen seems to place quite a bit of trust in potentially useful non-Baskervilles (namely Rufus Barma, Vincent Nightray, and Xai Vessalius), Lottie seems to be just below him in the Baskervilles' internal hierarchy.
** TheEvilGenius: Fang -- Though more of a GeniusBruiser than a MadScientist, he seems to be the most intelligent one of his companions, and from what little we've seen of him, he's a capable tactician.
** TheBrute: Doug -- While he breaks the stereotype by possessing intelligence and lacking a cruel streak, he doesn't seem to have much authority in the Baskervilles and seems to be more Lottie's bodyguard than anything.
** TheDarkChick: Lily
* HeroAntagonist: Zigzagged. They start out the story as menacing assassins, but their actions are given more sympathetic explanations halfway through the story. However, despite their initially noble cause, they're willing to do some seriously shady things to get what they want and don't often care for the human lives it will cost. This becomes important in the climax, where when choosing between Jack's and Oswald's options of how to deal with TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, the protagonists TakeAThirdOption, as both Jack's and Oswald's are equally unacceptable to them.

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: {{Downplayed|Trope}} They subscribe pretty heavily to MyMasterRightOrWrong, ritually execute beloved family who "threaten the world with their existence," and form contracts with the creatures dwelling in the EldritchLocation they guard.

It's worth noting that although she certainly did have a GenkiGirl attitude during her young adult life, she was also disturbing and oddly philosophical at the time.
