* ActionGirl: Her first introduction is her trying to kill her [[spoiler:evil]] brother. Though she's your main healer, she has quite a few skills that are geared towards fighting. She also whips out her knives during quite a few scenes when enemies show up.

* TheBully: A weird combination of this trope and StealthMentor. Asch is a remorseless bully to Luke throughout most of their interactions together but his motivations for doing so are only partly because he hates him. [[spoiler:Since he's SecretlyDying, he needs Luke to be strong enough to take out Van and he finds Luke's compassionate nature post-haircut to be a constant source of frustration. Since he refuses to acknowledge Luke as his own individual person, believing that Luke is nothing more than a copy of him, he takes the fact that Luke ''isn't'' a cold-hearted warrior like he is as a personal attack against him]].
* CainAndAbel: It's speculated that Asch might be an evil brother of Luke's due to their resemblance. The theory is quickly {{Jossed}} in universe [[spoiler:but the sibling dynamic is still played up once it's revealed that Luke is his fonic clone.]]

* TheChosenOne: [[spoiler:The real one because he's the original Luke. The prophecy was talking about him and Van created Luke to throw the Score off track.]]

Born Vandesdelca Musto Fende, Van is the commander of the Six God Generals, and Commandant of the Order of Lorelei's Oracle Knights. He is also Luke's sword-instructor and mentor, and one of the few people to treat him with patience and respect. Despite this, Tear seems intent on offing him, and the God Generals who are supposedly under his command are wrecking havoc upon Auldrant.

Added DiffLines:

* DarkAndTroubledPast: Though not particularly forecast by the Score, he turned out to be an ApocalypseMaiden in his own right. [[spoiler:Once, he and his sister Mystearica were citizens of the land of Hod, and young Vandesdelca was a volunteer in experiments on fomicry and hyperressonance. But then war came to Hod, threatening the experiments... which were, secretly, being carried out by Malkuth. They hooked Van up to a machine that used his hyperresonance to create an EarthShatteringKaboom, destroying Hod. Malkuth then blamed said Kaboom on Kimlasca-Lanvaldear as a pretext to declare war. Hod, as a landmass, sunk into the Qliphoth below; its populace was wiped out almost to a person, with only ''three'' canon survivors. And when Van and Tear ''somehow'' got to Yulia City alive, Van learned that nobody gave a damn about what had just happened to him, [[BecauseDestinySaidSo because the Score said it was all okay]]. This was Van's StartOfDarkness, and frankly, it's hard to fault him.]]

* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: Not as much so as their [[VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia successor]] and in fact are the most ''downplayed'' example in the ''VideoGame/TalesSeries''. The party notes that, as an unlikely a group they are, they are composed of some of the most notable second-tier citizens of Auldrant, and are trusted by the rulers of ''every'' world government (Luke and Natalia with Kimlasca-Lanvaldear; Jade with Malkuth; Anise with Fon Master Ion; Tear with the mayor of Yulia City; and Guy [[spoiler: also with Malkuth]]). On top of that, they have a lot of specialized skills and talents that aid them; Jade with his genius fonist abilities, Tear's hymns, and Luke's hyperresonance come up repeatedly as key to their success against the BigBad's plots, with Natalia's HundredPercentAdorationRating with the citizens of Kimlasca being important a few times, Anise's experience with the Order of Lorelei as a Fon Master Guardian coming in handy, and even Guy's fontech geek knowledge helping them a few times.

Added DiffLines:

* NoHeroToHisValet: subverted. At first, Mieu is the victim of several KickTheDog moments from Luke. Despite this, Mieu never loses his UndyingLoyalty towards him. Additionally, a metric of Luke's CharacterDevelopment is the amount of respect he shows Mieu, who -- annoying voice or not -- is an irreplaceable member of the party from the start.

* DarkActionGirl: You don't become one a God-General without being a vicious combatant.



* PsychopathicManchild: Not so much psychopathic though so much as she's taken slow to mature and her father-figure is a villain.

* YoungerThanTheyLook: [[spoiler:He's only seven years old]], the kicker being that nobody trustworthy is aware of it until it is [[WhamEpisode too late]]. [[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]]
