* LastOfHisKind: Initially assumed, since they were the only living thing on their world aside from Gamzee. However, with some exposition on how cherub reproduction works, it turns out it's perfectly normal for a cherub child to be the only living thing on a given planet. Their species is space-borne, and tends toward extreme isolation.

While they are the only cherubim seen in the comic (flashbacks/exposition notwithstanding), it's made pretty clear there are plenty of others around. They just aren't relevant.

* LastOfHisKind: While Cherub reproduction is very unknown, they seem to be the last surviving Cherub on a barren planet.
** Averted, as it is only natural for a Cherub to be the only one of their species on any given planet.

* RageQuit:
** Caliborn's bending of the rules of {{TabletopGame/chess}} makes her angrily quit, [[FlippingTheTable hitting the table]] and declaring her (platonic) hatred for him.
** She basically freaks out when Rose, the last person she wants near her, appears out of nowhere and tries to wake both her and Roxy up to prevent her brother from finding her.

* CovertPervert: In A6A6I4, when a doomed Jade talks to Calliope about Typhaeus and describes him as a large green snake, she immediately associates him with the mating form of a cherub, and begins to snicker as Jade describes Typhaeus as 'awake and ready for [John]'. Though admittedly, a "large snake" being "awake and ready" for someone would probably sound kind of dirty to a human too.

* FanNickname: Callie tends to get used.



* KilledOffForReal: Her dreamself. Her actual self also ended up killed due to how Cherub personalities work, since Caliborn is in control of their shared body... but eventually she gained her own body courtesy of Roxy and the Ring of Life.

* BigGood: What her alternate, doomed-timeline self turned out to be, being powerful enough to destroy the Green Sun and depower Lord English.



* MiseryBuildsCharacter: Her doomed self seems to be an example of this: while she had no human friends in this timeline, her isolation with only [[{{Jerkass}} Cali]][[OmnicidalManiac born]] for company made her strong enough in her resolve to predominate over him, something her alpha self never could have achieved.


Added DiffLines:


!!!God Tier Calliope
* TheAtoner: Seems to regret killing her brother through predomination to some extent.
* ApocalypseMaiden: This Calliope exists only to bring about the destruction of the Green Sun.
* BeyondTheImpossible: Rose and Aradia had both expressed disbelief about whether the Green Sun could be destroyed; Act 7 proves them quite wrong.
* BigGood: What this alternate, doomed-timeline self turned out to be, being powerful enough to destroy the Green Sun and depower Lord English.
* BlessedWithSuck: Her incredible power came at the cost of complete isolation from everyone she would come to protect.
* CarpeDiem: After a life of loneliness, her final advice to both Calliope and Jade is to "live" and "have fun."
* ComesGreatResponsibility: She points to the restraint Space players must have with their incredible powers, [[HypocriticalHumor immediately before turning the largest star in the universe into a metafictional black hole.]]
* TheComicallySerious: Downplayed. She's one of the least humorous characters, but her ultimate fate has her [[SweetBroAndHellaJeff drifting into the sun like a piece of shit.]]
* MercyKill: Goes to Echidna to die rather than to live forever in a dead session.
* GoodCounterpart: As a fully realized Cherub, this Calliope acts as the closest counterpart to what Caliborn becomes as Lord English
* MiseryBuildsCharacter: Her doomed self seems to be an example of this: while she had no human friends in this timeline, her isolation with only [[{{Jerkass}} Cali]][[OmnicidalManiac born]] for company made her strong enough in her resolve to predominate over him, something her alpha self never could have achieved.
* TheStoic: Completely isolated throughout her life, this Calliope never shows any emotion and speaks only with lowercase letters.
* SymbolicBlood: She types with the color of her brother's blood.
* TimeAbyss: Part of her Choice with Echidna involved spending nigh eternity as a ghost, completely alone.

* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Upon meeting Gamzee, Caliborn proceeds to unload his assault rifle into him for ''four straight pages,'' even taking the time to DoubleTap Gamzee's motionless body. (In fairness, [[{{Determinator}} that damn clown refuses to stay dead]].)

* [[TheUntwist The Shitty Twist]]: He's Lord English. After a major flash sequence that implied it, it was outright revealed in a pretty dismissive way. Given [[TrollingCreator Hussie's]] usual narration style, though, it's still possible for this to be a fake-out, with something more complicated at work.



** [[WhenSheSmiles When He Smiles]]: Except when matters of his species' culture or [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/storyfiles/hs2/05958_2.gif worldbuilding]] come up.

* KilledOffForReal: Her dreamself. Her actual self is still ''technically'' alive, but asleep, since Caliborn is in control of their shared body. The way that Caliborn is monopolizing the body shows that she's not coming back anytime soon.
