Fabre]]



* AllLovingHero: Post-{{Important Haircut}} he makes a point of helping everyone, including the [[spoiler: other]] replicas that no one else likes.
* ApocalypseMaiden: [[spoiler: Van created him to act as this, destroying Akzeriuth and the Albertesque Seal it guards so that he can kick off the end of Auldrant. This is [[DramaticIrony exactly]] what the Score said the real Luke fon Fabre would do. Interestingly enough, it's only ''after'' Luke has been tricked into setting in motion the end of the world that he starts being able to fight against Van's plan.]]

[[spoiler: Then Akzeriuth happens, he learns he's a replica and TheTeam abandons him...]] All of this is [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]] when one takes into account [[spoiler: Luke is truly seven]] and the consequences of being "broken" become evident.

** Case in point, almost everyone blames him for [[spoiler: Akzeriuth]], even though logically trusting the man who helped raise him makes far more sense than trusting the people he just met. Essentially, they're blaming him for being a victim. No wonder he has so many issues.

[[note]] Interesting side note: Luke's one of the oldest replicas encountered in game. The only one that's older than him is the Nebilim replica, who's more than twice his age. However, he is the oldest Seventh-Fonon-based replica.[[/note]]

Explaining things is the most common thing Jade worms his way out of, but he also gets out of menial labour and the like.

None of which he's happy about. Why? [[spoiler:Because he's ''not'' the god of a man people seem to think he is.

As the story goes on, he seems to develop envy towards Luke; as he's able to overcome his flaws and develop true compassion for the lives of others whereas Jade struggles with very similar issues up to and beyond the game's end.]]

** While he keeps an almost invariably cool facade, Jade is initially very emotionally detached and aloof to everything. As Luke grows and Jade sees the fruits of both his inventions and his apathetic treatment of others, he begins to increasingly loathe his work and curse his irresponsible detachment from his surroundings. Late in the game, during a skit contemplating both, [[spoiler:he wishes he could go back in time and kill himself as a newborn]] and, for once, he doesnít seem to be joking.
** During a private chat with Luke, he confesses that [[spoiler:he had guessed that Luke was a Replica long before TheReveal, but that he withheld the information because he felt explaining would be a hassle]]. Heís aware of the ramifications of keeping everyone in the dark about this, with no small amount of self-loathing.

Contrary to Lukeís game-long redemption arc, Aniseís is glossed over with a bit of crying and no hard feelings from the rest of the party.

She also tests to see what the party does with traitors as far back as when they learn Guy was originally on Van's side. She's easily the hardest on traitors, and remarks how stupid they are for trusting Spinoza.

Physically, Tear is a pain to fight as, but has actual, painful spells. Despite not having spells capable of hurting others, Natalia's strike artes and physical attacks are probably tied with Guy as the third strongest on the field.

--> Voiced by: Creator/IkueOtani (JP game) Creator/YumikoKobayashi (JP Anime), Creator/ErinFitzgerald (EN)

Ion is the Fon Master of the Order of Lorelei, meaning that he is technically the ruler of the world. He arranges for Malkuth to kidnap him so he can escape from Mohs and investigate the conspiracy that seems to have sprung up. He is one of the few people trained to read the Score. Though he can use powerful techniques known as Daathic Artes, he suffers from a weak constitution and often collapses after using them.

He and the researchers lost control of a particularly powerful one, which destroyed the island of Hod, killing most of its citizens, Van's parents included. It's implied that his father died during Hod's destruction, but his mother survived long enough to give birth to Tear, whom she was pregnant with at the time.]]
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: He supports human free will over the Score's predetermination because of all the suffering he went through. [[spoiler: He is largely portrayed in a sympathetic WellIntentionedExtremist or NecessarilyEvil light.]]
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Van attained the rank of Dorian General and Commandant of the Oracle Knights at a remarkably young age, and was on the receiving end of a lot of ire because of it. He grew his beard for the sole purpose of trying to look older so people would leave him alone about his age (he's 27, believe it or not).
