Added DiffLines:

* ChildSoldier: Though ImprobableAge isn't uncommon, it deserves mention in Asch's case; it's heavily implied that being thrown into the Oracle Knights, already traumatized, when ten years old did '''not''' help his mental state.


Added DiffLines:

* ChildSoldier: Deserves special mention [[spoiler: as he turns out to be ''[[YoungerThanTheyLook two years old]]'' meaning he's basically been one since ''birth''.]] Even discounting that spoiler, he's way too young to be the commander of military forces, much less of such a high rank[[note]]Sync is not just the 5th division leader, but the Chief of Staff of the Oracle Knights[[/note]].

* ParentalSubstitute: Not him himself, but it deserves mention here since Luke has no less than '''five''' different ones. Van is the obvious one, but Guy also raised him after he got amnesia [[spoiler: or rather due to being a BlankSlate replica]]. Then it gets complicated [[spoiler: as though Jade denies it, he ultimately fills this position for Luke after Van [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness abandons him]]. And, since he's a clone, Duke Fabre and, especially, Lady Susanne accepting him as their son puts them as two more.]]



* ChildProdigy: When he was younger there wasn't any fonic arte he couldn't learn -- except seventh fonic artes. This is a [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]] taking account he was also a CreepyChild (see below for details).



* {{Creepy|Child}} ChildProdigy: He used his genius-level skill in fonic artes to torture monsters ForTheEvulz. His own sister called him a monster, but he got better after Professor Nebilim showed him the errors of his ways.

* ImprobableAge: He created the first replica when he was ''nine''. This is PlayedForDrama when he and his sister reveals their awareness that such a thing was unnatural for a boy of his age. It's implied his use of torturing monsters ForTheEvulz with his fonic artes came soon after.

* ParentalSubstitute: Though he denies it, it's very obvious that he has become this to [[spoiler: Luke]] despite himself.

* YoungAndInCharge: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] '''hard'''. Because he was a child, he ended up becoming a villain under the burden of leading the Order of Lorelei with his death forced in front of him repeatedly.

* LittleMissConArtist: Part of her whole GoldDigger shtick is acting adorable and cheerful to pilfer coins from gullible NPCs.

* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Was deliberately kept ignorant after his kidnapping and throughout the game the rest of the party tends to hide things from him despite how it always tends to result in horrible situations. In particular, the sheer amount of secrets and deception around Luke [[spoiler:led to [[WhamEpisode Akzeriuth's destruction]] at his (unintended) hands.]]

* 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.]]

Added DiffLines:

** It gets more complicated considering certain revelations. [[spoiler: The voice that had been giving Luke chronic headaches pre game and a little into it? [[PureMagicBeing Lorelei]] trying to contact his other self so he will destroy the Score. In other words, Lorelei ''chooses'' him over the original for the task of saving Auldrant.]]


Added DiffLines:

* 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.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BloodKnight: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]]. Luke is normally a ReluctantWarrior, but going to the coliseum reveals that he enjoys that kind of fighting[[note]] It's all harmless fun; mostly made up of very realistic illusions that make you think you are injured enough that you basically knock yourself out.[[/note]] very much (he gets very excited and giddy about it) to the point that when he was younger, there was a general agreement to not introduce him to the coliseum so he wouldn't whine his way into fighting in it.

Added DiffLines:

* HammerSpace: Where Jade keeps his spears when he's not wielding them. It's [[JustifiedTrope justified]] by explaining the fonic arte that lets him do it as essentially breaking them apart into their individual fonons and keeping those fonons stored in his arm when he's not using them; this ([[GuideDangIt miss]][[LostForever able]]) explanation actually turns out to be a ChekhovsGun when [[spoiler:something similar ''accidentally'' happens to Luke, who is made of Seventh Fonons, with an item that is ''also'' made of Seventh Fonons.]]
