- Ensemble Dark Horse: Pocket is fairly popular due to his unique design and being The Comically Serious.
- Growing the Beard: While the prologue is full of fun action sequences and funny moments, "The Executioner" marks a considerable upgrade in storytelling, art quality and page composition.
- Stoic Woobie: Dante. An Animus so powerful that the Bloody Flames were instructed specifically not to engage him. Of course, he grew up under an abusive clan head that was only interested in cultivating his brother's Animus, who then focused on him after his brother gauged out his eye in a fit of rage and was subsequently banished. It's amazing he's still one of the more genuinely kind characters in the comic.
