* FourEyesZeroSoul: Jade Curtiss.

to:

* FourEyesZeroSoul: Deconstructed with Jade Curtiss.Curtiss and twinned with ReluctantPsycho. He doesn't necessarily ''want'' to be a [[MoralSociopathy sociopath]] but he just can't fight the fact that he simply doesn't understand the value of human life.

Added DiffLines:

* GodIsGood: [[spoiler: Very much so. Lorelei is a benevolent deity that wants humanity to succeed. Unlike most holy beings in media, he is all but ecstatic when he is made irrelevant, as Luke defying the Score means that humans are ''finally'' independent and don't need him anymore. ]]

* AkashicRecords: The Score, which predicts everything from national histories to what an individual person is going to do that day. Additionally, Sync has a Mystic Arte called Akashic Torment.

* WritersCannotDoMath: Extra stuff you can read in Daath and Baticul will tell you extra information about Auldrant. One of these books will tell you that there are 765 days in a year on Auldrant spread out over 13 months. However, you're also told that twelve of those months have 58 days, and there's one month with 60 days. This makes ''756'' days in a year, not ''765''. 765 could be considered a typo if it weren't Namco's CreatorsThumbprint, as "765" can be read as "na-mu-ko" ("Namco"), making it fall squarely in this trope. Also, the two dates you're given are not possible within the same year, if you try write out the calendar (with or without the unaccounted for nine days)

* RoyallyScrewedUp: [[spoiler:Kimlasca-Lanvaldear is riddled with incompetence. Malkuth, on the other hand, has many competent leaders, and it shows if you talk to the people of Grand Chokmah. They'll say things like, "Well, if Emporer Peony says so, then I'll believe him." People don't talk about King Ingobert like that, but they do like Natalia. In fact, every time they say something good about their country, it's something Natalia did, and she's not even the real princess. Duke Fabre and King Ingobert are both fairly incompetent for a large part of the story.]]

*** You don't even need skits to know what Jade is like at times- look at what he adds to some of the food in the optional ingredient section, or read what he makes when it tells you; for instance, when asked the make pizza after he gets his first or second star on the recipe, he makes Potato Pizza, provided you have potatoes on hand, as they are his choice ingredient for this one.

Though, this might just mean Jade has BizarreTasteInFood.

* In the events leading up to [[spoiler: Akzeriuth]], the party, especially Tear, warn Luke that he needs to think for himself and not blindly rush into things solely on others' authority. Except they give no reason why he should distrust [[spoiler: Van]] other than because they say so.
