* MinorMajorCharacter: Lorelei is the focus of a major religion in Auldrant and the very reason the Score exists, not to mention is heavily implied to be why [[spoiler:Luke fon Fabre was born with his fonic signature.]] Despite that, he gets minimal amount of lines and only has two scenes where he actually "appears" in one form or another. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] as he's trapped in the core the entire time [[spoiler:and it's possibly subverted since [[TheHero Luke]] is Lorelei as well.]]

* DyingAlone: Very much so; he isn't even ''known'' to be dead until TheReveal the Ion they know is a replica; and even then outside of Luke's group and those already in the know, that Ion is believed to be the "real" one.

* GodsHandsAreTied: [[spoiler:The pact between him and Yulia traps him in the core and means he can't do anything about the Score as he's forced to sustain it. He ''really'' would like to help and resorts to some LoopholeAbuse to try to aid Luke. He also technically [[SubvertedTrope subverts]] this thanks to Luke; while the Lorelei in the Core is bound, the Lorelei that is Luke is ''very'' active in fighting the Score.]]

* MeaningfulName: Lorelei means "murmuring rock". The Score is recorded on special fonstones that Scorer's "read" out loud. It's also the name of a [[EnthrallingSiren siren]] in mythology that lured sailors to their doom. [[spoiler:The Score leads to the end of Auldrant and all of the people there are following the Score.]] The siren angle works in another way too; the sirens of ''Literature/TheOdyssey'' sang of [[http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/odyssey/section7.rhtml revealing the knowledge of the future to Odysseus]].

* AuthorityInNameOnly: He has this relationship with the God Generals. They support the Grand Maestro faction of the Order of Lorelei, so people believe that he does as well. However, it turns out that he's actually on the Fon Master's side and that his generals have effectively gone rogue to fight for Mohs. [[spoiler:[[ILied Except it turns out that that's not true at all]]. They've been following his orders from the beginning. He just acts like this is the case in order to win Luke, and the player's, trust.]]

* TheChooserOfTheOne: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With]]. The Score puts Luke fon Fabre as the one to "inherite the power of Lorelei" and Lorelei helped make the Score. [[spoiler:And yes, he did pick Luke...[[TheUnchosenOne the replica]] that is. The Score is ''humanity'' choosing the original Luke fon Fabre after a fashion. Lorelei picks out the replica because he's his [[GodInHumanForm other self]] and thus capable of [[ScrewDestiny screwing destiny]] and ending the Score which is what he wants. Shame that his attempts to talk to Luke just gave him massive headaches and only fragments of his voice. And his ExactWords gave him issues the few times he could properly talk to him.]]

* TheAce: In regards to her archery. In terms of cutscenes alone, if one pays attention, during cutscenes where fights take place, ''she's nearly always the first one to get a hit in''. Seriously, Luke would have ''died'' had she not fired on Largo, and would have died even earlier if she hadn't, while ''turning'' expertly ''sniped'' Sync out of a tree. She gives cover fire when the group is ambushed by Legretta (who uses ''guns''), and certainly gets a ''LOT'' farther than the others in doing any real counterattack. Ironically, that girl who everyone but Jade and Luke have doubts letting into their group is ''also the one who most often saves their collective asses.''
