  • Smug Snake: His cause is noble, but he often comes across as unbearably self-satisfied.

  • Deadpan Snarker: Often against his own personal saftey.
  • Fall Guy: Willingly offers himself as one to end the investigation into McCann's murder to protect Maya and Frank.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: He is resigned to the fact that he has no chance of ever winning Maya back, but frequently checks in on her just to share her company and make sure she is ok. Eventually he sets himself up for crimes he did not commit just to keep her safe.
