Added DiffLines:

* GoodFeelsGood: Played with, since he was raised on BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad. Even if he starts to reform, "good" acts feel terrible since he was raised to be cunning and to be feared.


Added DiffLines:

* CloseRangeCombatant: Near the latter half of the story she begins to use a flashy LaserBlade in combat. She even manages to deflect a spell by slashing with it


Added DiffLines:

* EvilChancellor: Technically, as General Sunshine's foremost lieutenant.


Added DiffLines:

* MagicKnight: Almost literally at one point, when he dodges Sleeping Hex-resistant armor and wields a Most Ancient [[spoiler:LaserBlade blade.]]


Added DiffLines:

* KungFuWizard: Part of his advanced training [[spoiler:To fight Bellatrix]] involves using kicks when magic isn't an option.

* MultilayerFacade: [[spoiler: Started as Tom Riddle playing both Voldemort and Monroe. By the time of the series he's [[BecomingTheMask fully embraced the Voldemort persona]], and Voldemort is possessing the real Quirrell and dropping hints that he's secretly Monroe in disguise. After his defeat, and Harry arranging the scene, everyone believes Monroe, pretending to be Quirrell, died heroically fighting Voldemort.]]

* CrazyPrepared: Do to Harry's extensive Science Fiction knowledge he already has general strategies for the exotic scenarios worked out. Lampshaded in the Lake battle, where it blows Malfoy's mind that the Chaos Legion had a plan for 3D fighting when Harry really just gave the "Why are you all upside down?" speech from EndersGame.

* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: By the end of the fic she's [[spoiler:part troll, and part unicorn, in addition to being brought back from the dead.]]



* GreekChorus: During ''Self-Actualization'', since he's not an active participant in the events of the story he spends most of it correctly guessing how the events around S.P.H.E.W. will end up, when he's not reflecting on how he's the only sane person at Hogwarts.



* PlausibleDeniability: He apparently doesn't have any at all. No matter what he's doing, it is a plot, even if he's genuinely helping.




to:

* OddFriendship: With Neville, after being under Harry's leadership.




to:

* PhraseCatcher: [[spoiler:When dueling Neville, she calls herself "Greengrass of Sunshine." This quickly becomes a popular joke among her classmates.]]



* ResignationsNotAccepted: She attempts to resign late into the year, after [[spoiler:an extremely brutal dressing-down from Harry as to why she isn't responsible for Hermione's death and what she could have to differently]], but Dumbledore refuses to lose faith in her.




to:

* YouAreInCommandNow: [[spoiler:With Dumbledore being trapped between the walls of Time, she takes his place as Headmaster at the end of the story.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BecomingTheMask: She's been playing the "stern disciplinarian" role to deal with the chaos in Gryffindor for so long that she defaults to it in a crisis instead of actually thinking. [[spoiler: The realization that not only Harry and Quirrel but ''Dumbledore'' don't think of her as enough of an independent actor to even blame her for her mistakes thanks to this almost breaks her.]]

** His plotting works like this too. He has a dozen or so plans going at any one time, all of which seem insane and only eight or nine have any actual deeper goal.

[[spoiler: The fact many of his seemingly random actions are to fulfill prophesies and even he doesn't see how they're supposed to help muddles this a bit.]]

%%* BewareTheNiceOnes

to:

%%* BewareTheNiceOnes* BewareTheNiceOnes: Thanks to the support he gets being in Hufflepuff and Harry intentionally helping him along he gets his upgrade to full hero status years earlier than in the books. Plus due to training on his own time and flowering somewhat from the experience he's one of the most powerful individual fighters in the armies, and apparently something of a crowd favorite.


Added DiffLines:

* TheDragon: He's the heavy hitter for the Sunshine army, and the one most likely to put up a decent fight against Neville one on one.
