He ultimately puts an end to this grudge, and his general hatred of humanity, after Falchion shows him the kindness and mercy he needs to emotionally recover.

** Agent Lapis is implied to have gone through this when [[spoiler:she escaped her homefic ''just as'' it was being deleted. And she got broken even harder when the only person who truly cared for her was murdered during the sporking GoneHorriblyWrong of "Sweet Apple Massacre".]]
** One higher-level subspecies of [[DemonicPossession Sue-wraith]], the ''Impetus miserabilis'', [[InvokedTrope invokes this]] on canons it possesses. Just ask Cupid Carmine, who was originally one of these and tried to do exactly that to a poor, hapless [[VideoGame/KidIcarus Pit]].



* ChekovsGun: That seemingly useless shiny bauble that Falchion buys from the armory before his first mission? [[spoiler:It's an X-Bomb from ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'', which is just what he needs when he has to get rid of V-Wrex and Terrordactyl once and for all.]] Doubles as an EarlyBirdCameo for [[spoiler:''VideoGame/KidIcarus'']] itself, as [=SkarmorySilver=] would go on to publish a mission into that continuum some four months later.



* CowardlyLion: Lapis is a self-proclaimed NervousWreck, as well as a [[SourSupporter near-constant pessimist]] when it comes to the Duty. Between these two traits, you'd never guess that she's actually an incredibly loyal and highly protective {{Determinator}} who [[spoiler:not only destroyed a [[GodModeSue God-Mode Stu]] completely by ''accident'' (though she got DePowered shortly afterward), but also followed up by [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu taking down another one with her wits alone]].]]



* DemonicPossession: Author/Sue-Wraiths possess canon characters and force them to act on their (depraved) whims. They usually have to be exorcised before they can be destroyed [[spoiler:or in the case of E.V.L. and Cupid, purified]].

** Lapis is revealed to be this when she explains her backstory. [[spoiler:[[DeathByOriginStory The death of her closest (and at the time, only) friend]] at the hands of a psychotic replacement took a ''massive'' [[BreakTheCutie emotional toll]] on her, but she recovered through sheer force of will, believing that the only way to prevent a similar situation from happening to her or her friends again would be to start killing badfic herself, and never stop even once. She also [[ShutUpHannibal shuts down]] E.V.L.'s attempt to dissuade her from the Duty with the assertion that doing so would be counter to what Nick would've wanted, and even waiting for too long to become an agent (i.e. until she's at an older, safer age) could literally mean the difference between life and death. [[HandicappedBadass Lost limbs be damned.]]]]



** Agent Lapis, a ''[[KidHero thirteen-year-old girl]]'' of all people, pulls this off against an evil god who claimed to be the brother of [[TheLittleMermaid King Triton]] in defense of a fellow agent. How? As she herself puts it best later:
-->"If you want to go up against a hideous, [[GodModeSue deific, Suvian]], [[CanonDefilement canon-violating]], [[FireForgedFriends poker-friend-mutilating]] son of a ''[[PrecisionFStrike fish-fucker]]'', do ''not'' bring a pair of Sawtooth Sabers that can be easily discarded. [[spoiler: [[SummonBiggerFish Bring]] [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Davy Jonesí Kraken]] [[SummonBiggerFish instead.]]"]]

[[spoiler: [[SummonBiggerFish Bring]] [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Davy Jonesí Kraken]] [[SummonBiggerFish instead.]]"]]



** This (along with INeedAFreakingDrink) is [[TheAlcoholic Cupid's]] defining personality trait (aside from being a ChivalrousPervert), thanks in no small part to his homefic involving [[VideoGame/KidIcarus the guy he was possessing]] [[https://docs.google.com/document/d/144EpH2XJjtUUhrKxGiHLXSStFROEHiSbW3sZr5rjrP8/edit?usp=sharing doing the same thing.]]



* EvenEvilHasStandards: Agent E.V.L. is usually snide, jeering, and openly malicious to everyone she meets. But if [[spoiler:[[DeathByOriginStory Rayner's first partner, Nicholas Abbey,]]]] is so much as mentioned, [[NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead she immediately shuts up.]] She also respects Lapis completely once she finds out that [[spoiler:Nick took care of Lapis when nobody else would, making his death in the disastrous sporking of "Sweet Apple Massacre" all the more painful for her.]]



* FireForgedFriends: Most agent pairs that start out with the two of them bickering or otherwise having hard feelings turn into this. Even Rayner and E.V.L., who began as a Sue-hating agent and a Sue-wraith, respectively, have since gained a grudging respect for each other.
** Agent Lapis earned the respect of Chakkik, who is normally a SociopathicHero, after she, Cupid, and Stephanie saved him from a villainous GaryStu... with a little help from [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Davy Jones' Kraken]].

* HandicappedBadass: Lapis becomes this after [[spoiler:losing her right hand to a [[GodModeSue God-Mode Stu]] on her fourth mission.]] [[{{Determinator}} It doesn't stop her performing the Duty.]] ''[[BadassAdorable At all.]]''



** Agent Lapis is shown to be quite the monster buff in a few missions, knowing the ins and outs of the ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' series and taking a liking to [[Film/{{Cloverfield}} mini-Clovers]]. Also, after she uses [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean The Kraken]] to wipe out a bunch of pirate Stus (and ends up getting a little too close in the process), her only comment (aside from traumatized whimpering) is that she liked it better from behind the TV screen.
-->'''[[Anime/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl Stephanie Podd]]''': [[OurMonstersAreDifferent "Hey, I'm a kraken too!"]]



** Agent Lapis is [[NervousWreck neurotic]], [[LovableCoward jumpy]], and [[SourSupporter the first to lose hope when things go pear-shaped]]. But if she has a [[BerserkButton legitimate reason]] to not only talk smack to your face, but ''cripple you as she does''... well, consider yourself completely and utterly [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge screwed.]]



* PetTheDog[=/=]MoralityPet: For all the [[{{Jerkass}} jerkassery]] E.V.L. brings into play, upon finding out that Lapis [[spoiler:not only survived the ''massive'' [[BreakTheCutie emotional trauma]] from [[DeathByOriginStory the aftermath]] of "Sweet Apple Massacre", but also became an agent ''because'' of that incident]], she immediately starts treating her with a lot more respect. Even before then, however, Lapis was one of the very few people whom E.V.L. wouldn't openly harm, likely due to [[NotSoDifferent both of them]] [[TheAtoner being ex-Sues and therefore having spent part of their lives looking for a renewed sense of purpose]].



* RaptorAttack: Falchion's first mission, "Connecting The Dots", featured an evil, sentient HalfHumanHybrid ''Deinonychus'', named Velociripper, courtesy of the fic's author injecting the ''JurassicPark'' franchise into an already bungled MegaCrossover. Surprisingly for his source material, his raptorial form is as anatomically accurate as the real thing, feathers and all. Ripper was later brought into the PPC by accident, locking him into his dino form, but ultimately pulled a HeelFaceTurn and [[AndroclesLion settled his differences]] with Falchion after he found out just how horrible badfic can be on his first training mission.

* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: When Agents Lapis and Chakkik collaborate for the first time, Chakkik nearly gets himself killed by a literal, villainous GodModeStu. Lapis' response? [[spoiler:Convince [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Captain Davy Jones]] to drop his pet [[KrakenAndLeviathan Kraken]] on said Stu's ass, [[BatmanGambit using another Stu as bait.]] Needless to say, both Suvians and all of the {{Mooks}} involved [[CurbStompBattle are utterly annihilated in the ensuing carnage,]] leaving not a trace behind.]]



* ShutUpHannibal: While not evil per se, E.V.L. still dislikes the PPC and its purpose enough to try and convince Lapis to defect from it along with her and avoid the ugly business of killing badfic. Lapis uses simple common sense to counter her argument without missing a beat, earning E.V.L.'s respect in an instant.



** Cupid arguably qualifies as a GeniusDitz.
