* SlidingScaleOfFreeWill:Dovin does not believe that a person is characterized by their experiences for the rest of their life, even if they do no longer recall it or appear to have recanted. These behaviour patterns will always be a part of them and thus, no one can truly change oneself.

[[caption-width-right:350:The mortal corpus, even the mind, is merely a series of sophisticated mechanisms. It is simplicity itself to observe a mechanism in action, and draw appropriate conclusions.]]



* TheGovernment: Unlike most planeswalkers, he retains strong ties to the rulers of his homeplane. He acts as an agent in the name of the Consulate in the Multiverse, even trying to recruit the Gatewatch.
* HarmonyVersusDiscipline: Fairly on the side of discipline, believing animistic notions about a plane to be nonsense.

Added DiffLines:

* TheArchmage: Trained and succeeded to become an archmage of the Flight of Goldnight, channeling magic from the archangels of Innistrad. The archmages of Goldnight focus on more aggressive magic than the other three.
* TheBerserker: When transforming in Havengul, she not only slaughtered the devils, but also the angel she tried to protect and the entire group of cathars and mages that came to drive off the devils.
* CrisisOfFaith: Arlinn originally joined the Church in the belief that Avacyns blessing could contain her lycanthropy. When she became an archmage and discovered that the magic of the angels could not aid her, she violenntly transformed in battle, killing not only the attacking devils, but also the angel [[MyGreatestFailure she had tried to save, along with the entire group cathars that had accompained her]].


Added DiffLines:

* EmergencyTransformation: Arlinn was once forced to assume her werewolf form in Havengul, right after her graduation as an archmage, in order to save an angel.
* EnemyMine: Under her leadership, the her pack of werewolfs joined forces with the Cathars against the madness of the angels.


Added DiffLines:

* IAmWhatIAm: Arlinn came to this realization on another world, that perhaps, she was not to be saved by Avacyn, but could only accept and embrace what she had become when she faced the nature of her being.


Added DiffLines:

* RejectedApology: Her old mentor, Rembert, refused to forgive her for concealing her true nature from the Church and killing the angel and his friends and told her to never appear before him again. The two later came to terms in the face of Avacyn's madness.


Added DiffLines:

* StagesOfMonsterGrief: Underwent denial by hoping that Avacyn could contain the curse, but later directly jumped to acceptance after her first planeswalk.

Added DiffLines:

* TheParalyzer: His card's first ability can reduce a creature's attack power and seal its activated abilities. His emblem is even more oppressive; end up on the wrong side of it, and you can't untap more than ''two permanents a turn''[[labelnote:explaination]]While tapped (turned sideways), a number of permanents are basically powerless; tapped creatures can't attack or block, tapped artifacts can't use certain abilities, and most critically, lands can't produce Mana for spells. Ordinarily, all your permanents untap at the start of your turn.[[/labelnote]]

* CoolBigSis: Since joining the Gatewatch, she's been developing (read: "[[PoisonousFriend cultivating]]") this relationship to Chandra.



* ThePowerOfFriendship: Learned to recognize it in ''Eldritch Moon'' when she joined the Gatewatch. Unfortunately, she sees it like she sees any source of power: exploitable.



* {{Troll}}: Reshelves random books in Jace's library just to mess with him.



%%* ActionGirl

%%* ActionGirl* ActionGirl: A very capable (and literal) MagicKnight.



* DeceasedParentsAreTheBest: They certainly were the best parents, being proud of her pyromancy talent and going to great lengths to protect her.

** Liliana solidly lands herself in this Trope at the end of the Eldritch Moon storyline. [[spoiler: She leads an undead army to Thraben to save the Gatewatch from Emrakul, but winds up needing to be saved herself when she tries to ''fight Emrakul herself'' using the Chain Veil, only being saved by the Gatewatch's combined efforts. She finaly admits that doing everything alone won't always get the job done, and sooner or later it ''will'' get her killed, so she accepts Jace's offer to join the Gatewatch beleiving she can use them to achieve her own goals.]] Dark Is Not Evil, but not always good either.

** Her parents' deaths are also a ''very'' sore point. Minutes after merely meeting someone who works for the consulate responsible for their deaths, she bursts into an emotional meltdown.



** BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu: [[spoiler: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]]. Channeling Zendikar's fury alongside her own mana reserves to fuel the Eldrazi-obliterating spell took quite a toll on her body, leaving her temporarily drained and unable to feel her legs.]]

* ThePerfectionist: Played with. While his profile states that he understands that perfection is impossible, he generally conducts himself impeccably and tend to frown upon relatively minor flaws. For example, in his first appearance, he corrects a painting that is just slightly off.
* SherlockScan: He is well-noted as being a very eagle-eyed observer. One example: on the same day of being guided for an office tour around Jace's office, he realized someone (Liliana, although he has yet to know who) has misarranged a few books in the library.
