* DefrostingIceQueen: Part of her character development - she at first equates humans to irresponsible children and can be rather ruthless in her attempts to complete her mission, though as time goes on she begins to see the beauty in the world and respect humans as equals, rather than as nuisances she must babysit.



* {{Expy}}: of [[VideoGame/TalesofPhantasia Dhaos.]] Her mission to destroy the Lance of Kresnik is identical to Dhaos's mission to destroy the Mana Cannon. Also, the fabulous flowing tresses. How appropriate that his outfit is one of her DLC costumes.

* {{Expy}}: of [[VideoGame/TalesofPhantasia Dhaos.]] Dhaos]], though she's a little more heroic. Her mission to destroy the Lance of Kresnik is identical to Dhaos's mission to destroy the Mana Cannon. Also, the fabulous flowing tresses. How appropriate that his outfit is one of her DLC costumes.


Added DiffLines:

* HiddenDepths: To the surprise of others, Milla is a lot more human than she lets on or would like to admit - to give an example, she can be surprisingly egotistical and somewhat envious, which she only manages to veil thinly.


Added DiffLines:

* NotSoStoic: While normally straight-laced and practical, she can get extremely heated and angry when the situation calls for it. While infrequent, it manages to terrify the others whenever it happens.

Added DiffLines:

* TheMole: The game ''doesn't'' try to hide the fact this guy is a traitor. He will constantly sell the party out to others to push his agenda further but will always get bailed out by Jude, who stubbornly believes there is good in him. [[spoiler:Unlike other traitors in past games, he is sick with himself about his traitorous acts until all he has worked on for years pulling the same tactics yields nothing for his personal plans to go back to his home world, [[SanitySlippage which drives him insane briefly]].]]

* EvilSoundsDeep: "Evil" is pushing it, but MichaelMcConnohie gives him a deep, booming voice that's quite reminiscent of [[TalesOfTheAbyss Van.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SkilledButNaive: His main thing; he's a TeenGenius and has good martial arts skills, but he doesn't have much worldly experience and his [[WideEyedIdealist idealistic]] nature can get the better of him at times.


Added DiffLines:

* WideEyedIdealist: Jude thinks the best of people no matter what. Even [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor Alvin]]. This can bite him in the ass, but CharacterDevelopment has him temper it with his experiences; still thinks good of the world and people, but is more aware of the darker side.

* ButtMonkey -> TheChewToy: His suffering just gets played up, and is exaggerated, for more and more comedy value as time goes by.
* CovertPervert: Inverted. He's the one responsible who buys Milla's clothes and organizes them into outfits for her, according to Milla in one skit, implying that her attire was his choosing. However, [[AllThereInTheManual a 4-Koma Manga]] reveals that he tried to give her more conservative clothes, and it turns out that [[InvertedTrope her current outfit was the MOST he was able to convince her to wear]].

* ComedicSociopathy [=/=] {{Slapstick}}: Whenever he appears in a scene, the odds of this happening go up. Usually to him.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Looks like an idiot, acts like a bigger idiot, sounds like ''an even bigger'' idiot... and yet he's the only story character who isn't a villain nor part of TheTeam who has a Mystic Arte. There's also the fact that he climbs up a giant cannon on a moving airship in the middle of a battle with no discernible effort. Also, from the age of 2 he was able to talk with monsters, and even has a wyvern that only listens to him. He's also a decent fighter and Milla praises his skills when she fights him in the arena.
** Heck, even his first battle is a WakeUpCallBoss. He'll kill you dead, and ''quickly'', if you haven't mastered Jude's [[FlashStep Snap Pivot]] ability.
* DishingOutDirt: His Mystic Arte has shades of this. Also some of his other Artes, such as Terra Spin, Crushing Eagle, and Grave.

** Possibly justified in that [[spoiler: Ivar has been LockedOutOfTheLoop and doesn't know anything about what Milla is doing. Being told by Alvin through messages that he could free the Spirits by taking it to the Lance of Kresnik was him being manipulated. It's possible he didn't even know what the cannon was.]]
* EpicFail: Sums up just about ''everything he does.'' See BigDamnHeroes for his worst, though.

* IfICantHaveYou [=/=] MurderTheHypotenuse: Very narrowly averted. Much like [[VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence Chitose]], his rivalry with the new person in his master's life has shades of this but it isn't carried out. [[spoiler:He comes ''damn close'' when he fires up the Lance of Kresnik.]]
* KillEmAll: He [[spoiler: ''very nearly accomplishes this'' when he feeds the party to power the Lance of Kresnik.]]
* TheLancer: There is evidence to suggest that he ''was'' this to Milla before she met Jude. Afterwards, he became more like TheLoad.

** TheScrappy: ... And eventually he becomes a minor in-universe example. Milla even {{facepalm}}s at him ''the split second she sees him'' in one scene, and flat-out calls him annoying...
*** NotSoHarmlessVillain: [[spoiler:... That is, until half a minute later when he fires-up the Lance of Kresnik.]] On a less-spoilery note, ''the kid has a [[LimitBreak Mystic Arte]]''; something which ''Xillia'' is surprisingly stingy with.
* [[RedOniBlueOni Red Oni]]: To Jude and Milla's Blue.
* UndyingLoyalty: Towards Milla.

to:

** * RedOniBlueOni: The red oni to both Jude (rival) and Milla (mistress) 's Blue because he is far more expressive, engergetic and implusive than either of them.

** By the end though, he becomes one to Elize in a way.
* [[TheBigGuy The Big]] [[TheLancer Lancer]]: He's the most battle-hardened and {{Blood Knight}}y of the party and also provides a cynical, not to mention ''very'' treacherous, {{Foil}} to Jude and Milla's goodness and loyalty.

* [[ChildSoldiers Child Spy]]: Was raised as such, thus explaining his ChronicBackstabbingDisorder.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: This ''defines'' Alvin's character. It's so bad that at one point he has to plead with the party to let him continue traveling with them, and promises to let them kill him if he betrays them again. [[spoiler:And he '''still''' betrays them one last time!]]
