!!Alyssa Hamilton

Heroine of Clock Tower III, she's a Rooder, a member of a mystical clan with the power of fighting evil entities and their incarnations, the "Subordinates". She can use artifacts and summon a magical bow. Not to be confused with Alyssa Hale of the previous game.
----
* ActionSurvivor[=/=]ActionGirl: Alyssa Hamilton is the least helpless of all the Clock Tower protagonists.
* ArcherArchetype: Her weapon is a magical bow, which only becomes available during boss battles.
* DaddysGirl: A dark example. Ever since her father died, Alyssa's seen Dick as a father figure. His diary entries are full of admiration for Alyssa... [[spoiler:As you continue it gets more chilling as he reveals his plans.]]
* DangerousSixteenthBirthday: Well, fifteenth birthday. Close enough.
* GirlishPigtails: When she was young.
* GlassCannon: Alyssa can wield a bow well, but when enemies come close, she's in big trouble.
* HolyHandGrenade: Her super move.
** HolyBurnsEvil: Her trusty holy water.
* EtTuBrute: Quite a jarring example, In regards to [[spoiler:Dick's dark diary entries]][[note]]an obvious hint of what he truly is and his true intentions[[/note]]. Alyssa turns a blind eye on them. That is until she found out he [[spoiler:killed her father]], and would undoubtedly [[spoiler:mutilate her heart.]] Although she's still in denial until she reaches the top of the clock tower.
** IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: She tries, it ultimately fails.
* ExtraordinarilyEmpoweredGirl: She's a vulnerable but strong willed [[YoungerThanTheyLook little girl]] with magic powers.
* FieryRedhead: Though usually composed (when not frightened), Alyssa has displayed a temper regarding Dennis or [[spoiler:her grandfather.]]
* HeroesWantRedheads: Towards Dennis. [[ImpliedLoveInterest Maybe.]]
* IgnorantOfTheCall: Even though Nancy left Alyssa notes explaining to her how to use her items, she forgot to mention why she needs those items and what Rooders are. To much of Alyssa's dismay, she has no idea why a SerialKiller is chasing her. Alyssa only finds out about the latter through her Grandfather's notes.
* LaserBlade: Sorta; [[spoiler:After losing her bow]], her clover necklace turns into an energy sword.
* LightIsGood: Her Rooder powers are light based magic that can damage entities.
* LongRangeFighter
* MagicalGirlWarrior: Her mission as a Rooder is to defeat the evil Subordinates and free the innocent souls from their clutches.
* MeaningfulName: Alyssa means, to cure rabies i.e madness; or to be against madness.
* PantyShot: [[SickAndWrong She's a fourteen year old girl turning fifteen.]]
* PubertySuperpower: Her Rooder powers greatly manifest at the age of fifteen.
* SummonToHand: She can summon her bow, once she's about to hand over a sentimental item... [[PlotHole supposedly]].
* TargetedHumanSacrifice: [[spoiler:Her grandfather wants her heart to become an entity.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Towards Dennis.
* WitchSpecies: The Rooders are a matriarchal family. Their powers pass on from mother to daughter.

!!Dennis Owen

Alyssa's hyperactive friend.

----
* ActionSurvivor[=/=]ActionGirl: Alyssa Hamilton is the least helpless of all the Clock Tower protagonists.
* ArcherArchetype: Her weapon is a magical bow, which only becomes available during boss battles.

* LightIsGood: Her Rooder powers are light based magic that can damage entities.
