* {{Badass}}: A few characters, namely Lanna, Vail [[spoiler: (before his conversion)]] and Kase


* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Quite a few. Every character gets at least one. Surprisingly, Lanna gets several.



* DefiantToTheEnd: [[spoiler: Kate Devitt. Vail subverts this a bit as well]]
* DesignatedHero: Subverted. [[spoiler: Vail is established as a central character, most likely the hero to stop the Sundering despite his angst and self-sorrow, but this is ripped away after his FaceHeelTurn. The Designated Hero role then falls to the trio of Kase, Brendan and (oddly) Emma.]]

* MagnificentBastard: Generals Tamb and Vas share this, until Vas?s development and degradation through his ailing Swarm bio-organics



* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler: Vail after he starts blasting the fleets at the Penumbra. Arguably Emma has this as well when she kills Gibson.]]

* Lev Stolv - a militiaman of the Swarm, the main adversaries of humanity, introduced in Chapter 4. His explosive debut includes [[spoiler: almost killing Emma's [[CoolOldGuy new friend]] Brother Herbert, torching the organisation that hired her and taking off in her ship immediately thereafter. In a nice twist of fate he's betrayed by the people who employed him, who leave him for dead on a desert planet, right before he's rescued by his CompleteMonster of a boss and enslaved as a pet personal assistant.]] He's something of a truth-seeker in this story, but is nowhere near as patriotic towards his race as Lanna is.
