!!!The Handmaid/The Demoness
* AntiAntiChrist: The Handmaid does not seem happy about her role in shaping history.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Pre-Scratch, Damara wanted desperately to serve Lord English and even sabotaged her own session to further his plans. Post-Scratch, The Handmaid got to do just that and did not like it at all.
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: This line about the Handmaid's future from Doc Scratch: "My lessons would emphasize obedience, mastery of the clockwork majyyks, and being locked in a room."
* TheDragon: Both The Handmaid and then later The Condesce serve Lord English in the role, the former throughout Alternia's post-Scratch history and the later in both versions of Earth and in the post-scratch session.
* DragonLady: Described both as an Asian schoolgirl and death's "super foxy handmaid."
* DeathSeeker[=/=]DrivenToSuicide: Due to the abuse she received from Doc Scratch and Lord English, she wants nothing more than a release from life. She eventually gets what she wants, though it remains unknown how long she lived before her encounter with The Condesce.
* FanNickname: Arasia, for back when she first appeared as an Asian-clothed Aradia in Doc Scratch's apartment.
* FateWorseThanDeath: The Handmaid has attempted suicide to escape from her eternal slavery, to no effect.
* HopeSpot[=/=]NotQuiteSavedEnough: She has a few panels of blissful freedom thanks to Andrew Hussie, only to run into Lord English almost immediately.
* ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty: She doesn't look like she's aged much since she reached adulthood around [[AlternateCalendar nine sweeps]].
* ImmortalityHurts: So much, she'd rather die - or kill - than allow it to continue.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Her [[ShortHairWithTail hair]][[TwinTails style]] is similar to Meenah's (the Condesce's pre-scratch self), who her pre-scratch self Damara hated enough to join Lord English.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OFQHEy5TDw The Lost Child]]
* ManipulativeBitch[=/=]TheCorrupter: The Handmaid takes/took over for Doc Scratch, manipulating Alternia into a violent dystopia:
-->'''Doc Scratch:''' She stirred up class warfare and intensified bigotry in whatever era she haunted. She made sure the descendents would enter a world which prepared them well for the game, and took measures to see that they would play as they did.
* OffModel: Seems Aradia follows in [[http://i.imgur.com/x6REw.gif her ancestor's footsteps.]] (This panel was swiftly corrected, but not before the entire fanbase right-click-saved for hilarity.)
* ShortHairWithTail: A variation with bangs.
* {{Tykebomb}}
* UsedToBeASweetKid: She used to be such an [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/scratch.php?s=6&p=005968 adorable little grub]].
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: It isn't hard to feel bad for her, considering what she went through and in spite of what she's destined to do.
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: She really, really doesn't.

* TheBeastMaster: His Communion powers give him the ability to control Lusii like Pyralsprite.



* StrawHypocrite: Implied; despite preaching for love and tolerance, the Signless's final sermon is one of pure rage. The characterization of his Pre-Scratch counterpart gives some leeway to this idea.
* ThePowerOfLove: The Signless not only experienced a "love beyond the quadrants," but also called for acceptance for all regardless of blood.



** Referenced later, when Meenah calls him what his shit.

** His status as a friend and rival of Harry Anderson, and his taking the ''NightCourt'' role really played by Anderson, references [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=002536 John's fondness of Anderson]].
* TheDanza: In the real ''NightCourt'', Harry Anderson's character was named Harold Stone. In the post-scratch universe, where Poppop played that role instead of Anderson, the character is instead named Johnny Stone.

* CoolShades: '''[[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina]]''' [[TriangleShades shades]], to be precise. John's calls them "dumb anime shades" as a nod to this. WordOfGod says that it wasn't deliberate at first, but was [[AscendedFanon made a retroactive reference]] once his forum-goers asked him about it and brought Kamina to his attention.

* DeathOfPersonality: Just like Bec up there. Even worse for GCAT, in fact, as there's no indication that his personality is still around in [=GCATavsprite=].

Added DiffLines:

* DeathOfPersonality: After being double-tier prototyped with Jade's dreamself. A tiny remnant of his personality seems to have survived within Jade post God-Tier, but she's still the dominant consciousness of her own body, making it highly unlikely that he'll ever come back.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Despite Dave admitting that he's grown to see Bro as a sociopath who hated him and tried to make his life miserable (and indeed, he was a truly terrible parent), a few updates imply that he genuinely cared about Dave to some level; for example, him destroying a meteor to prevent it from hitting him and later holding off Jack Noir. It has been suggested by some that his crueler tendencies were amplified by Lil' Cal, and even Dave admits that this is a definite possibility (though he doesn't want to think about it any further).
