** Teenaged characters are all over the map. Alice is the typical rebellious example. Bob is a BitchInSheepsClothing who appears to be nice but is actually evil. Charles looks the part but is cheerful, respectful, does good and puts most adults to shame. Daina is certainly rebellious and angsty but is essentially a living saint - most of her angst is related to not being able to help enough people.

** Alice discovers that growing up is hard. She's tired of being treated as a kid, so she rebels, which causes her to be treated even more as a kid. Alice eventually learns that growing up means getting along with others, but does not necessarily mean blindly following authority all the time. As a result, she becomes a rebel who learns when it's right to listen to authority and when not to, but is always considerate of other people and will help them out whenever they are in need, even if that means going against authority. Of course, [[GoodIsNotNice she's still not that much of a nice person.]]
** Alice acts like a monster, gets caught, punished, and learns not to do that anymore. [[AesopAmnesia At least for now.]]
