* GreyAndGrayMorality: If what she claims is true, she only goes after murderous killers and leaves ordinary people alone. It's also pointed out that everyone who works for her does so willingly and are paid handsomely. However what she does to the criminals is clearly a FateWorseThanDeath and those who associate with the murderer receive inhumane treatment.

[[folder:Junner]]
!!Junner
->'''Voiced By:''' Roger L. Jackson

Antonia's bodyguard and security chief.
----
* BountyHunter: He mentions being one.
* TheDragon: Is very loyal to Antonia Chillingsworth.
* EyeScream: Riddick kills him with a dagger through the eye.
* MasterSwordsman: He's as good with a blade as Riddick.
* UndyingLoyalty: Be it their relationship or the money she pays him, he never questions Antonia.
* VillainousFriendship: There appears to be a relationship between him and Antonia. He shares her interest in art and only leaves her side when the situation is safe.
* WarriorPoet: Apparently he's into art like Antonia, though their tastes differ somewhat.


* GenreSavvy: He knows not to underestimate Riddick.

Added DiffLines:

* TheDogBitesBack: After bringing Riddick to Butcher Bay in ''VideoGame/EscapeFromButcherBay'', he spends most of the game alternating between foiling Riddick's escape attempts and haggling with the warden over his bounty and getting no respect (and even less respect as Riddick continues to tear up the place.) Eventually Johns gets tired of haggling, and the next time he foils Riddick's escape attempt he tries to haul him off the planet to take him to another prison.


Added DiffLines:

* PutOnABus: Johns spends the entirety of ''VideoGame/AssaultOnDarkAthena'' unconscious, due to Hauser not returning to voice the character.

Added DiffLines:

* SpacePolice: He poses as this, when in reality he's a mercenary.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatYouAreInTheDark: Johns is capable of keeping up a fairly benevolent (if no-nonsense) demeanor, but when the chips are down, he reveals his true nature as a ruthless monster concerned solely with his own benefit. This is demonstrated in a very literal fashion in ''Pitch Black'', when Johns and Riddick walk ahead of the group to discuss the best way to get through a dangerous canyon. Johns exposes the depths of his depravity by suggesting they murder Jack, a young girl, and drag her corpse as a distraction for the creatures. Riddick is quietly horrified by such a suggestion.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint:
** Carolyn is outraged to find out that Johns is a morphine addict when her copilot died in pain without relief. Johns states that the entire reason he's an addict in the first place is because of a piece of a shiv Riddick left right next to his spine that causes him nearly constant pain. He can still feel it rubbing against his spine and shows the wound to Carolyn.
-->'''Johns:''' ''"You feel that? Riddick did that. He went for the sweet spot and missed."''
** Johns also repeatedly stresses to Carolyn that Riddick is someone to be genuinely wary of. Johns is a junkie coward and a prick who still operates within the bounds of the law, while Riddick is a dangerous killer who would [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness sacrifice all of them in an instant]] if he could. [[spoiler:Johns's point is proven when Riddick leaves Carolyn, Jack and Imam behind to die when they have outlived their usefulness.]]

%%* BountyHunter

* BountyHunter: One of the most amoral you will ever meet. It doesn't matter if the people who hired him are ruthless multi-corporations and the people he hunts mere deserters or [[DefectorFromDecadence defectors]], he WILL collect the bounty on their heads and appear as lawful no matter what. So no different from a hired killer.
