@JamesJiao What do you mean? – Louis Sep 9 '12 at 6:16
Renegade and Paragon points are not mutually exclusive. They can coexist. That's why you are seeing both in the same bar. – deutschZuid Sep 9 '12 at 6:18
Oh right. Yeah, I forgot about paragon and renegade actions. – Louis Sep 9 '12 at 6:21

The blue wings represent the portion of your reputation that has come from Paragon actions. Conversely, the red star represents the portion of your reputation that has come from Renegade actions.
