* {{Catfight}}: Luca and Cloche twice. The first time is a CrowningMomentOfFunny, but the second one is played much more seriously, with both of them dropping [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech reasons the other sucks]] like bombs [[spoiler:until TheReveal.]]
* CharacterDevelopment: She's very manipulative and self centered (mostly a case of self-pity) at the beginning with a strong tendency to blame innocent people and run away from her problems. She's also afraid of letting people get close to her. Later on, she starts seeing from other's perspectives, drops her mask and genuinely cares and tries to help with the creation of Metafalica leading to her CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming when she sings Hartes ciel, melenas walasye.

* GracefulLoser: Attempted once, but the same process that created Gaea overrules her and forces another boss fight. After losing again, she helps Cloche to truly open her mind and sing Metafalica properly, thereby avoiding the same mistake that caused the original failure of said song in the first place. This defragments Infel Phira's data and deletes Infel.

* IntelligenceEqualsIsolation: Infel was a genius and created many valuable inventions for Reyvateils, including the life-saving Diquity crystals. However, because she was not exactly in touch with the general populace and her actual wishes for creating Metafalica were for herself and Nenesha, with the people being second, this caused the people to start feeling uneasy toward her due to her intentions. That same uneasiness ended up seeping into her mind and made Infel close her heart, making Metafalica fail. This put a strain on Frelia and triggered Raki killing Nenesha.

* LivingWithTheVillain: Past a certain point in the game, the game reveals that Cloche is an I.P.D. Reyvateil, which was stated from early in the game to lack any Mind Guardian in their Cosmosphere. The game even spoils Infel's true identity much earlier in Phase 2, as her original body was buried alongside Nenesha in Promise Hill.

* 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 was made as an experimental step in fusing the IPDs' consciousnesses that Metafalica would need to be create, 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).

* 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.

* 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.

* LoveMakesYouEvil: The loss of Nenesha hardened Infel's personality and caused her to nearly kill the goddess. Afterward, she devises an AssimilationPlot to put everyone into a LotusEaterMachine.

* {{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.]]

* BodyguardCrush
* 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. [[spoiler:This is due to her D-Cellophane was removed by Jaza before she reached full maturity, effectively halting her growth until it was returned by Luca after the event of the game.]]
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: She has bright golden eyes that are emphasized when [[spoiler:Luca taps into her power and she begins to thrash in her tank.]]
* WingedHumanoid: She has green, fairylike wings on her back. [[spoiler:It certainly didn't help her early childhood as it is a telltale sign that she's an ArtificialHuman, and she couldn't fly with it either.]]

* 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.

** That said, he does have some pitfalls in his policies. Firstly, he rejected Cloche's proposals to win the trust and support of the people due to the uncertainty of human emotions, even though [[spoiler:the willing support and devotion of [=IPDs=] to the Maiden of Aqua is essential for the creation of Metafalica in the first place]]. 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.
