* AffablyEvil: [[spoiler:He's ultimately a self-serving weasel with a callous disregard for human life,]] but it doesn't stop him from being oh-so-friendly and polite to all he meets.



* AmbiguousSituation: Edgar is the only alive character in the game who [[spoiler:doesn't leave his final thoughts behind if Jonathan drains him. Why? No one really knows.]]



* BenevolentBoss: Is a withdrawn and peculiar man, but that doesn't stop him from ensuring that Pembroke continues to aid the people despite the sanitary crisis. It is also implied that he's aware of all the ne'er-do-wells amongst his staff, but decides to look the other way so the needs of many are met.

* BrickJoke: Played for Drama. Early in the game, Dr. Swansea makes an off-hand request: Jonathan should call him by his first name. [[spoiler:After TheReveal, if Jonathan decides to kill him, he’ll mock-call Edgar by his surname, prompting Edgar to remind him in a half-aggravated half-desperate tone that he’d asked him to call by his first name.]]

[[spoiler:After TheReveal, if Jonathan decides to kill him, he’ll mock-call Edgar by his surname, prompting Edgar to remind him in a half-aggravated half-desperate tone that he’d asked him to call by his first name.]]



* DummiedOut: Perusing the game files reveals that Edgar had one last optional conversation with Jonathan before [[spoiler:he is kidnapped by [=McCullum’s=] goons.]] Jonathan would’ve been able to talk to him about Dawson’s plan to save London and discuss Elisabeth’s involvement in the story. Edgar would also outright [[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee squee]] should Jonathan mention that he has met Usher Talltree.
* TheFarmerAndTheViper: Can potentially become the Farmer to Jonathan's Viper. [[spoiler:Edgar will never stop supporting all actions Jonathan makes – even if they lead to Pembroke's shutdown, and the resultant death of all patients and personnel, or his own demise.]]
* FatalFlaw: Egoism as pointed out by the writers.

to:

* DeadlyEuphemism: [[spoiler:After his Turn, gives an honest – and unsettling – answer when you ask him if he feels the HorrorHunger. Seeing as the blood bag hasn't been invented yet in 1918, it's apparent that he's referring to living, breathing people.]]

** When discussing Priwen with him, Edgar will mention that the Guard might spare no wrath towards him for sheltering Jonathan. Regardless, he'll ease Jonathan's worries by saying that [=McCullum=] would never dare to invade the hospital while he's in charge.

* FriendlyEnemy: He's an insipidly considerate, cheerful man who values Jonathan's and Elisabeth’s friendships and wants what is best for them. [[spoiler:Nonetheless, that goodness doesn't excuse his heinous, vicious crimes that bathed London in the blood of thousands killed. This trope is epitomized if Jonathan Turns him — Edgar still views himself as Jonathan's friend despite Jonathan's unmistakable distaste.]]



* GoodCannotComprehendEvil: Playing with. He's a genuinely compassionate and cheerful man, but as Jonathan may point out, [[spoiler:even torture and a near-death experience couldn't teach him that what he did to Harriet Jones was wrong.]] To his credit, he doesn't seem to do this out of spite, but out of pure childish naiveté – even if he adopts a NeverMyFault stance when facing the harsh truth. Subverted if Jonathan did not Embrace a single citizen; upon being told what he's done, Edgar will admit his mistake.



* {{Hypocrite}}: Claims that he wouldn't betray Lady Ashbury's trust, but [[spoiler:decides to keep samples of her blood without her consent. To his credit, he couldn't have known that the good lady had been infected. Plus, he admits he's terrified of what she might do to him directly after TheReveal.]]

* LoonWithAHeartOfGold: Edgar may have... an odd habit or two – as mentioned by Lady Ashbury, Lord Redgrave and Usher Talltree – but he is still Pembroke's top surgeon and selflessly helps Londoners cope with the epidemic. Further reiterated when he, expecting nothing in return, gives Jonathan a roof over his head and a job. 
* MortonsFork: [[spoiler:There is no truly good outcome regarding what should be done with him at the end. If you kill him or let him die, the district will lose its Pillar and become unstable – not to mention that Edgar is worth more in terms of Health Status than any other citizen. If you turn him into a vampire, not only will he become a KarmaHoudini due to being completely fine with his new condition, he will – eventually – prey on his patients and staff. Fortunately, this doesn't happen in the game itself – the only way to keep the district sanitized is to turn him.]]

Given how the brotherhood has access to a mysterious vampire-killing ability known as the ban, things don't look great for the doctor.]]

condition. She's also Pembroke Hospital's main sponsor with a highly mysterious past.



* AmicableExes: Implied. [[spoiler:It’s not clear what happened or how did they fall out, but it can be assumed that she and Jacob do not necessarily hate each other – even if Jacob is targeting Elisabeth’s adopted daughter’s acquaintances.]]
* TheAtoner: Elisabeth was a [[spoiler:ruthless killer while infected by the Blood of Hate. In the end, after the Blood made her massacre an entire orphanage of children, she was persuaded to drink the antidote and cure herself.]] Nowadays, she spends most of her time tending to the poor and wretched of London’s East End and upkeeping an orphanage for girls in the West End.



* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire: Downplayed in that she does feed on humans, but she’s still upright and ethical about it.
* FrozenFashionSense: Inverted. Elisabeth is so contemporarily fashionable that she’s the only female character in the game that wears pants. And this is 1918 when women could’ve been sent to jail for what was then considered to be a crime.



* HappilyAdopted: After Elisabeth lost her biological parents to the plague of 1578, she was adopted [[spoiler: and Turned by William Marshal.]]
* HeroicBSOD: All but ceases to function when Jonathan [[spoiler:reveals to her that Edgar’s been using her blood for his own illicit experiments and that it had caused such widespread destruction across London.]] She flees in shame minutes later.



* LoveInterest: [[spoiler:Becomes one to Jonathan]].
* TheMcCoy: She's extremely unimpressed if Jonathan decides to kill her blackmailer, [[spoiler:Dorothy Crane]] and later tries to justify his actions. She equally disapproves of Lord Redgrave's decision to turn Aloysious Dawson, given the man is an exceedingly corrupt individual and giving him immortality would make his evil everlasting. [[spoiler:She will still lecture him for Embracing Aloysius, however, if he goes down that path.]]

MagicAntidote: Subverted. [[spoiler:The Tears of Angels that Elisabeth had drunk is this. It had ‘cured’ all the symptoms she’d been suffering from – rage, hate, desire to kill her blackmailer, [[spoiler:Dorothy Crane]] and later tries to justify his actions. She equally disapproves of Lord Redgrave's decision to turn Aloysious Dawson, given – but the man illness remained and, eventually, infected others.]]
* MeaningfulRename: Twice, actually. Her née name
is an exceedingly corrupt individual and giving him immortality would make his evil everlasting. [[spoiler:She will still lecture him for Embracing Aloysius, however, if he goes down Englewood, but she became Lady Blackwood after marrying Jacob: [[spoiler:a surname that path.]]personified callous murder and the Blood of Hate. After drinking the Tears of Angels, and to showcase that [[ThatManIsDead Lady Blackwood was no more]],]] in 1795, she bought the Ashbury Estate and inherited the title.
* NecessarilyEvil: Calls herself this, and indeed, the reason she had founded and is sponsoring a hospital is twofold. She aids those who can be saved and uses the dying, terminally ill patients as sustenance. This very habit had put all of her plans into jeopardy when Dorothy Crane started to – rightly – suspect her.



* ParentalSubstitute: She’s this to her adopted daughter, Charlotte. Deconstructed when Jonathan catches Charlotte musing on whether Elisabeth ever adopted others before her (only for them to pass away with a never-aging mother).
* PlatonicLifePartners: She and Edgar Swansea have been friends for almost a decade.



* SarcasticDevotee: Tags along with Jonathan but that detail doesn’t exempt him from the mixture of wit, sharpness, and sarcasm as she “teases and gently mocks young Ekons.” Justified, as, in her own words, she can’t help but mock her friends when uneasy.
* SecondLove: [[spoiler:Becomes one to Jonathan and it's revealed she'd already been married once]].



* ScienceIsGood: As science-less as vampirism (of all things!) can appear, Elisabeth firmly believes this. She allows Edgar to perform cutting-edge experiments on her so he’d cure her addiction for blood.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Ashbury is a lukewarm and unforthcoming individual, but she does have a softer side. Best seen when she starts painting Jonathan’s portrait somewhere around mid-to-late game.
* UglyGuyHotWife: Her first husband, Jacob, is only seen once – a 1788 painting in Elisabeth’s estate – but it’s clear he wasn’t/isn't a looker, in contrast to the delicate Elisabeth.
* UnholyMatrimony: [[spoiler:In her villainous past,]] Elisabeth was married to Jacob Blackwood – who is also her Progeny.



* YouKnowImBlackRight: Has a couple of these moments with Reid as she doesn't see vampirism as a curse. [[spoiler: Until the discovery she caused the plague.]]

* WhatTheHellHero: Has quite a few towards Jonathan should he go against her recommendations and [[spoiler:murder Dorothy Crane or Turn Alysious Dawson, both choices being incredibly bad story-wise]].
