[[folder:Class Zero (Playable Characters)]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/800px-FFAgito_Characters.jpg
A special class within the Suzaku Peristylium assembled as a preemptive strike force in case the other three nations of Oriense break the Pax Codex and set their sights upon Rubrum.
----
!!Universal tropes:
* BadassCape or ScarfOfAssKicking: Except Seven.
* BadassCrew
* BandOfBrothers
* ChildSoldiers: The latest foray into this theme since [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII the SeeD]]. It is explained in universe as the Suzaku Crystal can only grant [[ChildrenAreSpecial magic to the young]] and as people age their skill with magic diminishes.
* TheChosenOne: Each student is a part of Operation Apostle where he/she is striving to become the [[MessianicArchetype Agito]], who was prophesied to appear at "[[ApocalypseHow Finis]]".
* CodeName: All but Rem and Machina; however, they have no canon real names. They were originally going to, but the developers chose to only use the codenames. Since they were raised together by Arecia, they may well have forgotten their real names.
* FlatCharacter: Excluding Machina and Rem.
** [[spoiler:Turns out this is a deliberate arrangement by Arecia, who specifically conditioned such personalities since childhood as a way to prevent Finis and open Etro's Gate without the slaughter of billions at cost of their lives.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: The principal objective of Operation Apostle is exactly this. [[spoiler:They succeed in the normal ending (no matter what between-mission tasks the player did in between), but in the secret ending Arecia pulls off a CosmicRetcon to [[EverybodyLives spare them their grim fate]] and [[EarnYourHappyEnding allow them to live as a happy, if sometimes wacky, class]].]]
* HyperspaceArsenal
* [[spoiler:IDontWantToDie]]: [[spoiler:Dying hurts! And it's frightening! They're only kids, [[TearJerker what did you expect?...]]]]
* NumericalThemeNaming: With the exception of Machina and Rem.
* OnlyOneName: Again, all but Machina and Rem.
* PantyShot: In a disturbing glimpse into the mindset of the developers, the texturers put detail into giving each female playable character a unique and distinct set of underwear under their skirts, when previously during development, there was just going to be shadows and shading. May be justified due to how noticable the shadows could seem at times
* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[spoiler:As L'Cie.]]
* RedMage: As students of a WizardingSchool they all can use offensive, healing and support magic (in varying levels of proficiency). They are even called this by Qator.
* SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack: Of course it ''is'' both a WizardingSchool and a MilitarySchool.
** NonUniformUniform: Each one is slightly unique one way or another.
* SummonMagic: Any character can summon a WarGod at [[CastFromHitpoints the expense of all his/her HP]], rendering him/her unusable for the rest of the mission.
* TragicDream: [[spoiler:In the tie in novel all of them mention one, except Nine who can't think of anything. Ace to own a Chocobo Ranch, Deuce to be a musician, Jack to be a comedian, Trey a scholar, Queen a teacher of traditional subjects rather then magic and weaponry, Cinque to travel the world, Cater to find love, Eight to become a competitive martial artist, Seven to make an orphanage for the children who lost their parents in the war, Sice to be a chef and King a police officer. Machina and Rem share a dream of rebuilding the county.]]
* TrueCompanions: [[spoiler:Unto the bitter end. They even [[HoldingHands hold hands]] as they die.]]
* WackyHomeroom: [[spoiler:In the secret ending.]]
* WeaponOfChoice
* ZettaiRyouiki: Most of the females score various ranks.

!Machina Kunagiri
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/FFType0-MachinaRender350_3851.png
->'''Age:''' 17
->'''Birthday:''' (Unknown)
->'''Height:''' 175cm
->'''Weapon:''' Dual Rapiers
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/HiroshiKamiya (JP)

A transferee to Class Zero from Class Two (evidenced by his old navy-blue cape) and Rem's childhood friend, as well as her fellow viewpoint character. Younger brother of Izana who seeks revenge to Class Zero for not preventing Izana's death. [[spoiler:His constellation nature is ''Fear''.]]
----
* BadassCape: Special mention for being longer then the other students with a HighCollarOfDoom.
* BladeSpam: His ''Assault Mode'' especially.
* CastFromHitpoints: As per its standard in the series the ''Darkside'' attack drains Machina's health.

** DualWielding
** RoyalRapier
** ThisIsADrill
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Rem. [[spoiler:They are said to live HappilyEverAfter after the credits.]]
** ChildhoodMarriagePromise: With Rem, they keep it too.
* DeclarationOfProtection: Deconstructed. [[spoiler: His attempt to protect Rem is because of all Class Zero students, she's the only one he thinks he can trust. Along the way, he grows distant and accepts the power that grants him the strength for this purpose, but ironically loses his memories about her because of it. In the end, he's the one who kill her in his amnesia. Twisting the knife of irony further the novel reveals Machina's deep desire to protect Rem was due to the memory of having to murder her himself after she became possessed by the Lusanath Judge in the cycle previous and to do so he had to absorb the Phantoma of the rest of Class Zero himself.]]
* EverythingIsBetterWithSpinning: Wields drill-rapiers and has a special attack named ''Spin Drive''.
* [[spoiler:GoOutWithASmile: At the end of the normal ending's Distant Epilogue, 50 years after Class Zero died defeating Cid, and having completed recording their deeds and leading Oriense to the DawnOfAnEra, 67-year-old Machina dies with a smile, his wife Rem by his side.]]
* [[SheIsAllGrownUp He Is All Grown Up]]: It had been seven years since he and Rem last saw each other and back then Machina was even shorter then her.
* {{Keet}}: Shows some shades of this[[spoiler: in the secret ending, as he was last seen dragging off Ace from the Library to play.]]
* LifeDrain: His ''Drain Sword'' attack.
* ManInWhite: [[spoiler:As a Byakko l'Cie.]]
* ManlyTears: [[spoiler:Shed these after Rem dies accidentally ''by his hands'', and after he and the revived Rem finds the rest of Class Zero dead, their mission to defeat Cid a bittersweet success.]]
* MaskOfPower: [[spoiler: Qun'mi's helmet.]]
* MeaningfulName: Named after the phrase "DeusExMachina" -- "God out of the Machine". [[spoiler:Makes a lot of sense once it is revealed that he and Rem are the key to breaking the near-endless cycle of destruction that has trapped Oriense.]]
* MightyGlacier: His attacks are a bit slow but hits hard and the sheer number of hits his BladeSpam can do racks up damage.
** LightningBruiser: When using his [[SuperMode Assault Mode]] skill.
* TheMole: [[spoiler: He reports directly the Rubrum council keeping tabs on Class Zero and Arecia. Later he also infiltrates the Milites forces as a Byakko l'Cie but his [[LaserGuidedAmnesia deteriorating memories]] caused by the l'Cie power make him a [[BecomingTheMask loyal to the Milites Crystal]].]]
* NewTransferStudent
* SliceAndDiceSwordsmanship: Machina slashes an awful lot with his rapiers despite them not being edged weapons.
* StormOfBlades: Machina's ''Sword Field'' skill is this combined with ReverseShrapnel.
* [[spoiler:TearsOfRemorse: In the normal ending, he breaks down in these upon finding Class Zero dead from exhaustion in their victory over Cid, apologizing for prejudging them earlier for their failure to save Izana.]]
* ReluctantWarrior: Outright [[WarIsHell fears and despises fighting and war]] -- the same violence that claimed his brother's life.
* [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Brother]]: His prejudice of Class Zero is because of Class Zero's involvement in the mission where Izana was killed and had done nothing to stop his death. [[spoiler: This very reason is also why he becomes TheMole of Class Zero for the Rubrum Council and pulls a FaceHeelTurn by accepting Milites' l'Cie power.]]

!Rem Tokimiya
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/FFType0-RemRender_8734.png

* PoorCommunicationKills: [[spoiler: When she volunteers to be a l'Cie, she has to fight Milites' l'Cie. The problem here is, the enemy l'Cie is Machina, and they don't recognize each other because of Machina's LaserGuidedAmnesia and the fact that Machina is wearing Milites' full body uniform including the mask. She's so close from winning if not for Machina's mask slipping off and distracting her of [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice his rapiers from piercing her.]] It takes a DeusExMachina in the form of [[PhysicalGod Arecia]] for her to get better.]]
* PrecisionGuidedBoomerang: Her ''Boomerang Dagger'' skill.

[[folder:Fiefdom of Rubrum]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Rubrum_coat_of_arms350_8811.jpg
Rubrum is the nation at the southern area of Oriense, whose heraldic beast is [[TheFourGods Suzaku, the Vermillion Phoenix]], and whose traditional color is red. Featuring tropical weather and Victorian-style towns, Rubrum is traditionally governed by an eight-person council with Khalia Chival VI (who also functions as Headmaster of its Peristylium) as head. While not as technologically-advanced or refined as Milites or Concordia, being limited to cold weapons (such as swords), Rubrum is nevertheless feared for its soldiers' patriotism and its prowess in magic and summoning Eidolons.

Milites is traditionally ruled by an Emperor, but due to his sudden absence, Cid Aulstyne took over and became its effective dictator.

A special class within the Suzaku Peristylium assembled as a preemptive strike force in case the other three nations of Oriense break the Pax Codex and set their sights upon Rubrum.
----
!!Universal tropes:
* BadassCape or ScarfOfAssKicking: Except Seven.
* BadassCrew
* BandOfBrothers
* ChildSoldiers: The latest foray into this theme since [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII the SeeD]]. It is explained in universe as the Suzaku Crystal can only grant [[ChildrenAreSpecial magic to the young]] and as people age their skill with magic diminishes.
* TheChosenOne: Each student is a part of Operation Apostle where he/she is striving to become the [[MessianicArchetype Agito]], who was prophesied to appear at "[[ApocalypseHow Finis]]".
* CodeName: All but Rem and Machina; however, they have no canon real names. They were originally going to, but the developers chose to only use the codenames. Since they were raised together by Arecia, they may well have forgotten their real names.
* FlatCharacter: Excluding Machina and Rem.
** [[spoiler:Turns out this is a deliberate arrangement by Arecia, who specifically conditioned such personalities since childhood as a way to prevent Finis and open Etro's Gate without the slaughter of billions at cost of their lives.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: The principal objective of Operation Apostle is exactly this. [[spoiler:They succeed in the normal ending (no matter what between-mission tasks the player did in between), but in the secret ending Arecia pulls off a CosmicRetcon to [[EverybodyLives spare them their grim fate]] and [[EarnYourHappyEnding allow them to live as a happy, if sometimes wacky, class]].]]
* HyperspaceArsenal
* [[spoiler:IDontWantToDie]]: [[spoiler:Dying hurts! And it's frightening! They're only kids, [[TearJerker what did you expect?...]]]]
* NumericalThemeNaming: With the exception of Machina and Rem.
* OnlyOneName: Again, all but Machina and Rem.
* PantyShot: In a disturbing glimpse into the mindset of the developers, the texturers put detail into giving each female playable character a unique and distinct set of underwear under their skirts, when previously during development, there was just going to be shadows and shading. May be justified due to how noticable the shadows could seem at times
* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[spoiler:As L'Cie.]]
* RedMage: As students of a WizardingSchool they all can use offensive, healing and support magic (in varying levels of proficiency). They are even called this by Qator.
* SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack: Of course it ''is'' both a WizardingSchool and a MilitarySchool.
** NonUniformUniform: Each one is slightly unique one way or another.
* SummonMagic: Any character can summon a WarGod at [[CastFromHitpoints the expense of all his/her HP]], rendering him/her unusable for the rest of the mission.
* TragicDream: [[spoiler:In the tie in novel all of them mention one, except Nine who can't think of anything. Ace to own a Chocobo Ranch, Deuce to be a musician, Jack to be a comedian, Trey a scholar, Queen a teacher of traditional subjects rather then magic and weaponry, Cinque to travel the world, Cater to find love, Eight to become a competitive martial artist, Seven to make an orphanage for the children who lost their parents in the war, Sice to be a chef and King a police officer.

----

Along the way, he grows distant and accepts the power that grants him the strength for this purpose, but ironically loses his memories about her because of it. In the end, he's the one who kill her in his amnesia. Twisting the knife of irony further the novel reveals Machina's deep desire to protect Rem was due to the memory of having to murder her himself after she became possessed by the Lusanath Judge in the cycle previous and to do so he had to absorb the Phantoma of the rest of Class Zero himself.]]
* EverythingIsBetterWithSpinning: Wields drill-rapiers and has a special attack named ''Spin Drive''.
* [[spoiler:GoOutWithASmile: At the end of the normal ending's Distant Epilogue, 50 years after Class Zero died defeating Cid, and having completed recording their deeds and leading Oriense to the DawnOfAnEra, 67-year-old Machina dies with a smile, his wife Rem by his side.]]
* [[SheIsAllGrownUp He Is All Grown Up]]: It had been seven years since he and Rem last saw each other and back then Machina was even shorter then her.

* MaskOfPower: [[spoiler: Qun'mi's helmet.]]
* MeaningfulName: Named after the phrase "DeusExMachina" -- "God out of the Machine". [[spoiler:Makes a lot of sense once it is revealed that he and Rem are the key to breaking the near-endless cycle of destruction that has trapped Oriense.]]
* MightyGlacier: His attacks are a bit slow but hits hard and the sheer number of hits his BladeSpam can do racks up damage.
** LightningBruiser: When using his [[SuperMode Assault Mode]] skill.
* TheMole: [[spoiler: He reports directly the Rubrum council keeping tabs on Class Zero and Arecia. Later he also infiltrates the Milites forces as a Byakko l'Cie but his [[LaserGuidedAmnesia deteriorating memories]] caused by the l'Cie power make him a [[BecomingTheMask loyal to the Milites Crystal]].]]
* NewTransferStudent

* ReluctantWarrior: Outright [[WarIsHell fears and despises fighting and war]] -- the same violence that claimed his brother's life.
* [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Brother]]: His prejudice of Class Zero is because of Class Zero's involvement in the mission where Izana was killed and had done nothing to stop his death. [[spoiler: This very reason is also why he becomes TheMole of Class Zero for the Rubrum Council and pulls a FaceHeelTurn by accepting Milites' l'Cie power.]]

She's so close from winning if not for Machina's mask slipping off and distracting her of [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice his rapiers from piercing her.]] It takes a DeusExMachina in the form of [[PhysicalGod Arecia]] for her to get better.]]

Milites is the western nation of Oriense, whose heraldic beast is [[TheFourGods Byakko, the White Tiger]], and whose traditional color is yellow. Milites is traditionally ruled by an Emperor, but due to his sudden absence, Cid Aulstyne took over and became its effective dictator. Its Peristylium specializes in researching the Byakko Crystal, and unlike the other nations their Crystal can be tapped onto Magitek armor, allowing for mass application of its powers.

* [[spoiler:HopelessBossFight[=/=]ScriptedBattle: In the first phase of the final battle, he [[CurbStompBattle manhandles your half-dead party]] with 9999-damage attacks. Then the second phase turns the tables in your favor: the crystallized Machina and Rem lend their power to their classmates one at a time (starting with the last to fall during the first phase), giving him/her Regen and functional immortality. All you need to do is [[AttackItsWeakPoint strike at him at the right time]], then perform a Phantoma extract which will destroy one of Cid's orbs but knock your character out, forcing Machina and Rem's spirits to take over another character and continue the fight -- using up all twelve characters -- until it's over.]]

Lorica is the northern nation of Oriense, whose heraldic beast is [[TheFourGods Genbu, the Black Tortoise]], and whose traditional color is green.

* StartOfDarkness: If he is the same Gilgamesh seen throughout the series, this is likely where his story begins.

Notable for its distinctive oriental style, Concordia is a matriarchal society where almost every top government position is held by women (with the sole exception of the King, who holds a largely ceremonial role).
