!'''Rei Takeda'''
-->"Judgement comes after Justice, don't you know? But I'm not really Justice, I'm Zero... I'm empty yet full all at once, everywhere yet nowhere... positive and negative, Alpha and Omega. I've always BEEN Zero. Hell, that's the kanji for my name, after all..."

Overly dramatic (yet apathetic) teacher of Criminal Law at Rokketo, also known to wear his mask in the real world. Contrary to his theatrics, he feels life has little-no meaning and is a cynic. Also a criminal prosecutor on the side, he takes it upon himself to "mentor" Seiichi. At least, that's how he describes it. His Persona was Yamatano-Orochi but he later Ascended to Samael, moving from Moon to Justice.

After indulging in some criminal activity and all but going AxeCrazy in the name of "justice," Rei is stopped, his actions are outed, and he loses both his teaching position and his license to practice law.

first two to wear his mask appear in the real world. Contrary RP. A passionate law student seeking to his theatrics, he feels life has little-no meaning and is make a cynic. Also a criminal prosecutor on the side, he takes it upon himself to "mentor" Seiichi. At least, that's how he describes it.

difference in the name of "justice," Rei is stopped, his actions are outed, world, she more often encounters the poverty that plagues single university students and he loses both his teaching position assignment deadlines rather than [[AmoralAttorney Amoral Attorneys]] and his license to practice law.

* AnIcePerson
criminals for now. She shares a powerful rapport with her [[HeterosexualLifePartners dormmate]] Nezumi. Her persona is [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Athena]].



* {{Bishonen}}: Openly described as being frail looking, and having feminine features.
* CoolMask: His Persona/"Kyuu" Mask, it's basically a black visor. Leads to...
** [[GogglesDoNothing Visor Does Nothing]]: Averted. When using "Analysis" the enemy info appears in white text in the corner for [[RuleOfCool no reason other than 'visual aide.
* CheshireCatGrin: Does it so frequently it's even noted in his appearance as being particularly unnerving.
* IllBoy: {{Downplayed|Trope}}. He cannot take as much damage as anyone else and was this as a child.
* InformedAttribute: Allegedly very intelligent, but his scheming and development have left him holding the IdiotBall quite a bit.
* KnifeNut: Explicitly stated as using knives as his weapon.
* [[spoiler:LaughingMad]]: [[spoiler:In "Self-Exposition" and "So-Called Justice's" climaxes.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: Tries and fails spectacularly early on. WordOfGod states this is due to a lack of writing skill at the time and horribly rushed, horribly written development.
* MeaningfulName: An accidental one. Apparently "Rei" is one of the alternate ways to say "Zero" in Japanese. It also means "Law."
* ShoutOut: One of Rei's class topics was [[Franchise/AceAttorney 'Objection! This class is objectionable."]]
** His "World With No Boundaries" quotes are all ripped out of AceCombat
* SmartPeoplePlayChess
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives one to Seiichi in "Pale Moonlight."
* [[spoiler:TheReveal]]: [[spoiler:To Benkei and Takeo. His Persona intervenes and allows them to try and talk him out of it.]]
* [[TheStoic The Stoic/]]NervesOfSteel: Very few things actually surprise him, though he does seem to fear The Reaper.
* TheSociopath: Rei's bio states that he's not capable of understanding others, and he himself views people as pawns.
* TheStrategist
* WellIntentionedExtremist: His vanilla brand of vigilantism and notions of justice are extremely self-serving, yes, but he thinks he's doing the right thing.

!'''Mai Inami'''

'''OBJECTION!'''

Sorry, thought we were [[Franchise/AceAttorney in a different game]] for a moment there. Mai Inami's a student at Rokketto University, one of the first two to appear in the RP. A passionate law student seeking to make a difference in the world, she more often encounters the poverty that plagues single university students and assignment deadlines rather than [[AmoralAttorney Amoral Attorneys]] and criminals for now. She shares a powerful rapport with her [[HeterosexualLifePartners dormmate]] Nezumi. Her persona is [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Athena]].

* BadassLongcoat



!'''Shu Mikami'''

His current Persona is Shinigami.

* DarkAndTroubledPast: He doesn't like to talk about his childhood at all.
* DarkIsNotEvil
* DrivenToSuicide: At least once as a teenager. He obviously survived.
* ForScience: Pretty much why he continues going into the ruins and using his Persona, even when the latter tries to get him to off himself. Repeatedly.
* {{Emo}}: Averted. Shu is a representation of people who really do have depression, people who experience days of normality and days of extreme lows.
* {{Expy}}: In the CB, his creator was once asked if he was a reference to [[Franchise/DevilMayCry Agnus]].
* LongRangeFighter: Uses a Desert Eagle and throwing knives.
* KnifeNut: See above.

* ShoutOut: To a lot of bands, anime, and manga.
* ShrinkingViolet: Male example.
* SquishyWizard: He's weak to Phys, and excels in attack spells.
* TeenGenius: He's twenty, has a degree, and used to work at the forefront of a research company and later, with Kirihara Corp.
* TheSmartGuy
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Anything with caffeine or anything sweet.
* VerbalTic: Shu stutters all the time unless he's had his caffeine fix, and even then he still stutters around women.

* ImportantHaircut: She cut her hair so that she could easily disguise herself as a boy. Initially her hair was a bob, but changed into BoyishShortHair. Also developed TomboyishSidetails after that.

Kaburagi Jounichi lived as a quiet boy who sat in the back of class for the first couple years of his life. Then, he found the music of [[RonnieJamesDio a certain rock legend]] and his personality completely changed. His full attention became devoted to [[HeavyMetal The Metal]] that he loved so much and the attitude that went along with it. He is a raucous, headstrong, and determined individual. He will also do anything for someone he considers a friend. He'll also [[ThinkingOutLoud monologue a lot.]] He is Joe, the self-styled greatest rocker in the world.

* ThePowerOfRock: Joe is the personification of this trope. He walks around with his guitar almost everywhere and will usually end his monologues with a solo. When fighting shadows, he uses his guitar as a weapon and will often cast his spells (all lightning-based, of course) via a quick riff. One could even make the argument that [[RonnieJamesDio his persona might have something to do with rock.]]

* BlondGuysAreEvil: Manabu has blond hair, though it's acknowledged it's dyed. He actually becomes ''more'' evil as his hair starts returning back to its natural black. The fact that he's stopped dying his hair is one of the first signs of his SanitySlippage.

* [[spoiler:[[CainAndAbel Cain]]]]: If one is to take her Franchise/KamenRider AU (which feels much much more like SilentHill [[RecycledInSpace with sentai in it]] than anything else) into account... yes, it's quite likely.

* CoolShades: Not as [[TriangleShades cool as]] [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina's]], though.
* Expy: Originally intended to be one of [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kittan]] but comes across as an Expy of Kamina.

Kaji is the local teenage vigilante. Those are in every fictional Japanese town, right? He's cool and collected, but has an undeniable thirst to punish criminals and an odd hero complex. The only person to, so far, find out about his vigilante antics is Kaede Susaki, and she's not telling anyone, so [[BlatantLies it's possible it'll remain a secret forever.]] His persona is [[AlexanderTheGreat Bucephalus]] of the Tower arcana.

Added DiffLines:

!'''Daisuke Horiuchi'''

A criminal drifter from Osaka. Daisuke, along with his brother Ren, was raised in an abusive household, where his father would regularly beat the two of them for little reason - this stopped when the two ran away from home to embark in an existence of drifting through the country, staying under the radar as they commited various crimes against innocent citizens. Nagashima is only Daisuke's latest landing point, but his Awakening is certain to change the man's outlook towards the city and his own future. His Persona is Set of the Moon arcana.

* AbusiveParents: His father was a violent, abusive drunk who accused Daisuke of being responsible for his mother's illness.
* AffablyEvil: An even mix of this trope and FauxAffablyEvil. He's a good drinking buddy and won't do anything to you if he won't get something from it, but he's still a lifelong criminal with nothing but contempt for the average citizen.
* BlackMage: His Persona's skillset is clearly geared towards this, possessing earth, fire, lightning, wind and darkness powers as well as status ailments.
* CombatPragmatist: Doesn't really believe in fighting fair. Also hinted at by his skillset: since he can use many different elements, he's able to specifically target the specific weaknesses of a lot of his opponents.
* DeadpanSnarker
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He dearly loves his brother.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Due to his own past, he doesn't look too fondly on AbusiveParents.
* EvilRedhead
* GeniusBruiser: A prudent, calculating and thoughtful criminal on top of being a pretty big guy.
* PragmaticVillainy: He goes to great lenghts to stay under the radar, and won't do anything that'd risk compromising him.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Maroon, actually, but close enough.

* CoolBigSis: Towards her siblings.



* GirlyBruiser:: She sure loves doing her nails.
* LazyBum: Ayup. About the only thing she'll put any token amount of effort in is martial arts.

to:

* GirlyBruiser:: GirlyBruiser: She sure loves doing her nails.
* LazyBum: Ayup. About the only thing she'll put any token amount of effort in is martial arts. Interestingly, this leads her to make some calculated efforts to reduce her overall workload on the long run: for example, she keeps her room neat and tidy, because finding things is easier this way and it makes the time you spend lounging around in it more pleasant.



* MassiveNumberedSiblings: Not in the present, since she "only" has two siblings, but her mother is pregnant with twins, so there's a good chance that this'll eventually happen.



* RaisedCatholic


Added DiffLines:

* ReligiousBruiser: She's quite serious about her Catholic faith on top of being a proficient martial arts practitioner.
