- Magnificent Bastard: Odin. He's ruthless, selfish and quite creepy, but he's still the king of the gods, and he always gets what he wants. The "magnificent" part is also partly there because he often tricks or defeats people or entities that are (in the moralistic sense) even worse than he is.
- Jerkass Woobie: Poor damned soulless Valgard. He may be a kinslayer, murderer and traitor, but the society he grew up in didn't really give him a chance. And he was, practically from his birth, manipulated by higher powers.
