* KillSat: As the Maiden of Aqua, she can control the Infel Phira, a satellite in orbit. Using it allows her to tap into the collective ability of all willing [=IPDs=] to massively improve her magic ability. It's ''intended'' to be used to power Metafalica, but after the first failure was repurposed into a weapon capable of firing massive energy blasts that allowed the humans to win the war with the goddess four hundred years ago. It's usable as a combat ability and will end any fight if you use it properly, though it actually fails when used this way in Act One when Raki charges through it with her own energy blast (fortunately, as if the attack was not intercepted when it did, it would have destroyed Sol Marta and caused Metafalss to completely collapse into the Sea of Death. Raki herself even lampshaded it in the Toukousphere at one point).

* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: She allows Croix to Dive into her incomplete Cosmosphere to break her Boundary Gate into Infel Phira's Binary Field to stop Lakra upon Jacqli's suggestion. She did this knowing that it was effectively a lobotomy that would render her into a comatose state. Fortunately she recovers when Cloche sang Implanta to restore the IPD's Cosmospheres.]]

* GodIsFlawed: As stated in the introductory paragraph, Frelia's reputation as the Goddess of the second tower is a mixed bag[[labelnote:*]]because her guardian Raki had killed Nenesha to preserve Frelia's life and later accepted the Ascention Treaty, which was ultimately pinned on Frelia when Alfman fount out about the events that had transpired during Infel's time[[/labelnote]]. The Grand Bell believe they can do better by Metafalss and for this reason they declared war on her but the Sacred Army believe that GodIsGood instead. Since she's truly a Reyvateil like the heroines of course she has failings.

Added DiffLines:

* TraumaCongaLine: Her memories of the night previous to her and Nenesha's attempt of Metafalica, and to the day of the attempt itself, which are chronicled in the game's light novel, are this to her. First she runs away after realizing the greatest flaw her masterpiece METHOD_METAFALICA/. has, is convinced by Nenesha and their bodyguard knight Ana to trust the people instead of running away, and this trust is betrayed when the IPDs stop singing in disgust at the feelings they saw from her heart, which then lead into these same IPDs insulting her to her face and wishing her to die, and finally, to Ana and Nenesha's deaths.

* {{Shapeshifter}}: [[spoiler:She can change between her true form and Nenesha's shape because she made a pact with Nenesha due to being too embarrassed to show up before Luca after her relationship with Reisha were strained. It backfired horribly as Luca ended up forgotten her mother's warmth entirely.]]
* TheCakeIsALie: At one point, Goro promises a grand price for triggering ten Paradigm Shifts, but there are only nine levels in a Cosmosphere to begin with, so you can only actually achieve eight. [[spoiler:Plus, thanks to how screwed up her deeper levels are, Croix could only trigger six.]]

* CannotSpitItOut: For someone known as the Divine Messenger, he's awfully tight lipped about critical information like how [[spoiler:Frelia is the only thing keeping Metafalss from falling into the Sea of Death]] or [[spoiler:that the first Metafalica attempt has no chance of success due to Laude lying to Cloche.]] He seems to greatly prefer the option of just trying to kill everyone that doesn't instinctively know everything critical about the situation.
** Seems to be a trait that carried over from when [[spoiler:Shun was Enja. Enja spent years trying to apologize to Frelia for what he did to her when they were kids and tell her his true feelings but never could]].

* BeyondTheImpossible: The game likes to mention how only one person at a time can dive into a Reyvateil with two person dives a big deal that only the most skilled therapist can perform. Jacqli can handle three easily, but only for the first five of her Cosmosphere Level. Frelia can handle easily handle four with no signs of strain until the completion of her Cosmosphere. Everyone shouts how impossible this and normally this would be the case but Jacqil reminds them that Frelia is a goddess and so can handle it easily. Croix' response is pretty much "oh yeah....I forgot..."

* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: She's just over seven hundred years old and implied to be basically immortal so long as the tower remains functional or if she's killed outright. However, she looks about the same age as Cocona.

* TheExtremistWasRight: About twenty years ago, he violently overthrew the previous Grand Bell regime led by the Holy Maiden, a royal line and a pope who is only referred to on one or two occasions. Though he had Lady Arshe assassinated, killed Batz, had Leyka kidnapped for experimentation and pursued Luca for two decades, all of his actions were, in fact, are necessary evil for the creation of Metafalica.

Secondly, his policy were declaring war on the Goddess was RightForTheWrongReasons as Frelia herself wasn't involved with the Ascension Treaty[[labelnote:*]]said treaty was proposed by [[spoiler:Infel]] and signed by Raki on Frelia's behalf, with the former residing in Sol Marta by the time the story takes place[[/labelnote]], neither it was her fault for the land itself falling apart[[labelnote:*]]caused by the First Tower temporarily suspended by Shurelia in a last resort to halt Mir's rampage in Sol Ciel and Frelia's reserves being depleted by previous failed attempts of Metafalica[[/labelnote]]. Still, had his plan to use Replekia to destroy Sol Marta went through, the entirety of the Second Tower would've [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom instantly fell apart]].
* GoodAngelBadAngel: In Jacqli's cosmosphere story, he represents the murderous emotions towards humans that Jacqli/Miwa/Miros can't completely control. Whenever 'Miwa' is getting along too well with Croix or Luca and Cloche, Alfman always appears to destabilize her emotions to remind of her identity as 'Miros,' aka her grudge against humanity. He's destroyed in the fifth level of the cosmosphere, but he was just a symbol, not the internal conflict itself.

However, when Croix is let out a few minutes later, Luca admits to Amarie that while she ''was'' manipulating him, she really does love him, which is probably why she's been self conscious of how their relationship looks to others. Immediately after this the story splits into two branches where you support either Cloche or Luca, meaning the breakup serves as an in character reason not only to make Croix single, but also give a reason why he wouldn't immediately support his girlfriend: It would hurt too much to be near her right now. Notably, Croix ''can'' easily restart their relationship on more honest ground.
* SelectiveObliviousness: In Cloche's Infelsphere 4, Icy Silverlocks repeatedly tells here there's no meaningful distinction between herself and Cloche, only that she says the things Cloche won't. Luca absolutely refuses to believe it and asks to be taken to the 'real' Cloche who isn't mean to her, causing Ice Silverlocks Cloche to ask why she would want to see someone that won't accept her for who she is.

* SecondActBreakup: After she hears from an I.P.D. that Leyka died at some point, she, Croix and the rest of the party are thrown into prison briefly. When Croix tries to comfort her, she breaks up with him by telling him she's been manipulating him for years just so she could get to Pastalia and find her sister. Now that it's impossible, she doesn't need him anymore.

Immediately after this the story splits into two branches where you the player can choose to support either Cloche or Luca, meaning the breakup serves as an in character in-character reason not only to make Croix single, but also give a reason why he wouldn't immediately support his girlfriend: It would hurt too much to be near her right now.

* TragicKeepsake: [[spoiler:Reisha's hairpin. Meaningful as a keepsake, because Luca and Cloche went out of their way to pick it up from Reisha's grave, since Luca singing of EXEC_VIENA will drop rim of the Tower, where the grave is located.]]
* TrainingFromHell: In order to become a Dive Therapist, Luca had to go through some pretty harsh training that often lead to vomiting or other extreme cases. The Reyvateil forcefully alters her Cosmosphere to create a suitable, non hostile place for the future customers. The process of doing this appears to be rather painful for the Reyvateil, as it requires them to have their Cosmospheres get external programs installed that they will subconsciously reject, and also constructing thick mental walls that require in themselves to ability to have lucid dreams and manipulate them.

* CordonBleughChef: Cooks many of the most powerful items, both healing and attack, in... questionable manners. For instance, she makes Seafood Tales, a sushi roll that restores a large amount of health ''from a cake recipe'' and thinks holding a drink and a meal in battle is inefficient since you need at least one hand, so she decides to put a drink inside the burger, which oozes out the sides. And is bright blue.
* CosplayOtakuGirl: Unlike the other reyvatiels, she designs at least her first few outfits herself and when Croix points out that they look silly or mismatched she says he just doesn't get moe.
* CuttingTheKnot: Passage too narrow to pass through? Blow it up. Rubble blocking the way? Blow it up. Doors locked? Blow them up. Monument seems to have a passage behind it? Blow it up!
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler: She's truly ''Mir'' the Reyvateil whose emotions were suppressed, her first song rejected for being about hope, and who was imprisoned for centuries for leading a revolution.]]
* DarkMagicalGirl: Fits this trope very well. First her color scheme is dark colors compared to the leads. She's more cynical compared to their optimism about Metafalica. She's an enemy that later has a HeelFaceTurn. Her Cosmosphere story has her play this part as well.

Added DiffLines:

* AnimalMotifs: Just about all of her songs involve a baby bird somewhere in the lyrics. This is a carry-over from [[spoiler:the first game's EXEC_HARMONIUS]], which also involved a baby bird in the lyrics and [[spoiler:while actually sung in-game by Misha, was originally created by Mir]].

* LivingWithTheVillain: Past a certain point in the game, the game reminds the player that an I.P.D. cannot have a mind guardian. The game even spoils Infel's true identity much earlier in Phase 2, as her original body was buried alongside Nenesha in Promise Hill.
