** In a meta sense, she could also represent readers who wanted a tragic and bleak conclusion to the story, as she actively works towards that goal in [=EP8=] and in the manga.

** She could also be a personification of how the general public likes to villainify the Ushiromiya for fun when creating theories about the Rokkenjima incident, not caring about the fact that they were ''real people''.

Added DiffLines:

* AxCrazy: It becomes very obvious as time goes on that Bern is ''very'' disturbed. The fact that she goes out of her way to cause pain and suffering just for shits and giggles as well as the sheer amount of glee she takes in it makes it safe to say that [[spoiler: those hundreds of years of torment for the Rikas]] have effectively destroyed both her sanity as well as her humanity.

* EmptyEyes: Unlike in regular applications of the trope[[note]]characters with these kinds of eyes are usually shocked or traumatized to the point of HeroicBSOD[[/note]] [[PlayingWithATrope which may or may not still count]] [[DarkAndTroubledPast given what she's been through]], this is the default appearance of Bern's eyes. It makes her interactions with the rest of the cast all the more unsettling, especially from [=EP5=] onwards. Her genuine facial expressions done with those emotionless eyes are ''really'' unnerving.

* AntiquatedLinguistics: Her whole speech is old fashioned, which lends to her image as an elegant witch who has lived a thousand years. She's notable for using [[JapanesePronouns the archaic feminine pronoun "warawa" for herself]], and addresses others with "sonata". However, there are a few times where she slips into cruder, masculine Japanese like Jessica.

* JapanesePronouns: She uses the archaic feminine pronoun "warawa". Occasionally, though, she uses the more contemporary and gender-neutral "watashi" when [[spoiler:she drops the evil witch act and resurfaces as Sayo Yasuda]].

A human may ascend to witch level once they have figured out the truth of the game board, and will have the privilege to become the Game Master. While the vast majority of the witches in the series are female (that is, all of them except [[spoiler:Battler]]), [[AllThereInTheManual it's noted in a TIP]] that the term "witch" is gender-neutral; any human, male or female, can become a witch.

* TheMcCoy: Among Shannon, Kanon and herself, Beatrice is obviously the most emotionally-driven one with her sadistic and hammy nature. She coerces them into giving in to their emotions and desire for love, only to rejoice in the unavoidable failure of their romances. [[spoiler:Beatrice represents Sayo Yasuda's strong and aggressive side, as well as their most destructive and dangerous emotions.]]

* UsedToBeASweetKid: According to the flashback at the beginning of Episode 3, Beatrice was once a very sweet and innocent little girl who wanted to become a witch so she could achieve eternal happiness, after she was inspired by seeing Virgilia repair a broken vase with magic. She got what she wanted, but with that eternal happiness comes eternal boredom that she can only get rid of by abusing her powers to kill and revive people in sick ways. [[spoiler:While this flashback was really just a heavily idealized memory of Kumasawa getting Sayo Yasuda out of trouble for breaking the vase by saying a cat did it, it still foreshadows how Sayo really was a sweet kid, but some traumatic revelations and having a lonely, almost friendless life drove them to do some rather questionable things.]]

* CompositeCharacter: An in-universe version of the trope. [[spoiler:Beatrice as a whole is a mixture of the ghosts legends surrounding Rokkenjima, the rumor surrounding Kinzo's secret lover, and the real Beatrice's identities. In [=EP7=] it's shown how Sayo Yasuda started with a simple idea of Beatrice being a trickster ghost and ended with the product of knowing the stories behind the real Beatrices, their grandmother who gave the Italian gold to Kinzo and their mother who was kept in Kuwadorian and [[ParentalIncest was also Kinzo's lover]].]]

* TheMirrorShowsYourTrueSelf: This is the reason why one of Beatrice's weaknesses is said to be mirrors. [[spoiler:Namely because Sayo Yasuda hates them, since mirrors remind them that they're not really a powerful, elegant witch like they pretend to be in order to cope with their low self-esteem.]]

* APupilOfMineUntilSheTurnedToEvil: Virgilia repeatedly states her disappointment with how Beatrice has chosen to use her powers as Endless Witch. [[spoiler:This parallels how Kumasawa, the one who introduced Sayo Yasuda into mystery novels, might have ended up giving Sayo the source of their ideas about how to carry out the murders.]]

* WeaksauceWeakness: According to legend, Beatrice can be rendered powerless through spider webs or mirrors. [[spoiler:The spider webs are drawn from Kumasawa's stories about the youkai people believed would haunt the islands, and the mirrors are symbolic of how much Sayo Yasuda hates them due to their low self esteem.]]
