* '''Subverted''': Archibald is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold who went into science ''because'' he [[TheWorldIsJustAwesome deeply appreciates the beauty of nature]] and wanted to understand it better, and he really does want to [[ScienceHero use science to make a better world for everyone]]. Flora, on the other hand, is a cynical BitchInSheepsClothing who [[WoundedGazelleGambit pretends to be overwhelmed by her emotions]] only because [[ManipulativeBastard it helps her get what she wants]].

** Archibard is a [[TheStoic stoic]] scientist and Flora is a NatureHero. However it turns out NatureIsNotNice and her moral code more in line with BlueAndOrangeMorality if she even has a moral code at all. And Archibard is case of "DidYouThinkICantFeel".

* '''Exaggerated''': Archibald won a Nobel Prize for his groundbreaking scientific achievements, but he made his discoveries by [[MadScientist performing horrific experiments on human test subjects]], and he's [[ForScience perfectly fine with that fact]], dismissing human suffering as [[EvilCannotComprehendGood "trivial" and "irrelevant" collateral damage]]. Flora is a kind and selfless charity worker who runs a no-kill animal shelter, but as she's cowardly, terrible at handling the budget, [[WhatMeasureIsANonCute only wants to save cute animals]], and [[GoodIsDumb bursts into tears any time she has to make a decision, her efforts to do good in the world don't really accomplish much]].

* '''Straight''': Archibald, a brilliant philosopher and scientist, is [[TheStoic cold]], [[InsufferableGenius condescending]], and prone to MeasuringTheMarigolds. He meets Flora, a [[FriendToAllLivingThings gentle and kind horticulturist]], who doesn't understand much about science and finds it hard to make decisions because she's often overwhelmed by her emotions.

* '''Deconstructed''': We're shown how Archie, growing up, was taught to ruthlessly [[MenDontCry repress his emotions]] and value only hard logic [[IWantToBeARealMan because that's what a Real Man does]], gradually becoming cunning, cold, and heartless. Flora, meanwhile, was told that she shouldn't bother studying science or math because girls aren't good at that stuff, and learned that since no one respected her thoughts, the only way to get people to listen to her was to become hysterical. As a result, both of them end up as bitter, miserable and thoroughly unlikeable adults.
* '''Reconstructed''': Archie is brilliant, but sometimes loses sight of emotional issues in his zeal for logic. Flora is empathetic and kind, but often finds it hard to take action or think things through calmly because she's so easily overwhelmed by her emotions. Together, though, they balance out each other's flaws and become a great team.
