!Messiah Complex
!!Aidric Carter

Leader of the Messiah Complex and the most wanted man in the city, Aidric is trying for all intents and purposes to be the standard hero. A charismatic man and a powerful fighter, Aidric battles for truth, justice and all that is good and right in the world. Of course, he's also a hobo without a job and to say he's quirky would be putting it nicely. The man is childish at best, reckless and an absolute headache to many around him... but he's determined to save "his" city and that has to count for something, right?

!! Tropes:
* BerserkButton: Messing with anyone in the Messiah Complex, particularly Antoinette or Maitho.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Aidric may be an idiot, but he's a capable leader and extremely powerful. He's wanted for a reason.
* CrazyJealousGuy: Try to hit on Antoinette. No really, just try.

* HotBlooded
* IndyPloy: Aidric is the MASTER of this trope.
* KnightTemplar
* LargeHam Of course!
* ObfuscatingStupidity: It's not clear if Aidric's idiot tendencies are a ruse or not.
** GeniusDitz: The other explanation
* OlderThanTheyLook: Because of his powers
* PapaWolf: Do not mess with anyone in the Messiah Complex. Just don't. Particularly Antoinette, Clara, or Maitho.
* PaperThinDisguise: Is constantly using this. It works due to RuleOfFunny
** ClarkKenting: He manages to pull off a job at the Cafe on occasion through this
* ScarsAreForever
* SoulPower: Not the standard application of this trope, but his powers technically qualify as this.
** KiAttacks: Also falls into this.

!!Antoinette Richard

The owner of Cafe Richard where Aidric lives and where MC has chosen to locate their base. She is a saavy businesswoman, a hard worker, and does not take crap from anyone. She is cold, sarcastic, and doesn't open up easily. However, deep down, she cares deeply for everyone in the group. This is especially true for Clara and Aidric. Her power is to manipulate the wind, though she isn't much of a fighter.

!! Tropes:
* BelligerentSexualTension: First with Aidric, now with Price

!!Clara Mcculty

Substitute Gym teacher at SIN Academy, Member of Messiah Complex, and Aidric's personal sidekick, Clara is a ball of energy. She tends to just go with the flow of things, agreeing to whatever Aidric comes up with. She's a bit brighter than she seems and is a talented archer. She has power over plants, though she tries not to rely on that too much when fighting.

!! Tropes:
* ActionGirl

!!Dorian Smith

!! Tropes:
* ClipboardOfAuthority: He's "just a desk clerk."
* IfIt'sYouIt'sOkay: Valentine is the exception to his heterosexuality.

The Badass

!! Tropes:
* WalkingArmory
* BadassNormal
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome

!!Lamont Price

Lamont Price, a normal with a special talent for making his own life forevermore complicated current is working the the Messiah Complex for reasons so simplistic that they hardly seem believable. He's quick to anger, and survives off his every-man instinct to get through the more difficult spots- though it's safe to say he needs to rely on others and swallow his pride time to time.

!! Tropes:

* TheAlcoholic: Of the functional variety
* BadAssBeard: Grows one after going underground with the Messiah Complex
* BadAssNormal
* FieryRedHead
* GrumpyOldMan: "Old" being still in his late twenties, but you wouldn't know that listening to him talk.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Ask Ackerly
* OnlySaneMan

!!Maitho Savat

A Normal born to Normals- not to mention, blind- Maitho has no illusions when it comes to his lot in life. It's an attitude that begs the question of just why he's decided to join the Messiah Complex in the first place. His true passion, however, is cultivating poisonous plants.

!! Tropes:

* AbsurdlyYouthfulFather: to Rowan
* CrazyJealousGuy: Dorian had better keep mum about his relations with Valentine.
* CreepyChild: He was certainly this. [[spoiler: His son, Rowan, was and still is as well.]]
* DisguisedInDrag: A necessity for him as a wanted man after being broken out of the Tartarus
* DissonantSerenity: Yes, he just poisoned you, but that doesn't mean he's unpleasant about it.
* ElderAbuse: Maitho had his own father put into a medical care home for Normals simply because he wanted to continue to live on his own after Price burned down his house (it's a long story).
* FauxAffablyEvil: His being nice is an exception to the rule.
* HandicappedBadass / BadassNormal: Not that he would ever consider himself such or want others to know it.
* MasterPoisoner: Has gone full-time with this.
* MoralityChain: Aidric to Maitho.
* MysteriousInformant: For the Messiah Complex.
* ProphetEyes: Of the non-supernatural type, unnerves more than a few people.
* SoftSpokenSadist: He never raises his voice no matter what he's doing.
* StalkerWithACrush: He's more than a little obsessed with Valentine
* StalkerWithoutACrush: He stalked Price for six months, but he insists it wasn't out of love.
* StepfordSmiler: An interesting combination of Type A and Type C after his time in the Tartarus.
* UndyingLoyalty: Towards both Aidric and Valentine simultaneously.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: While he does it mostly for the sake of intelligence work, he arguably wears woman's clothes better than men's.

!!Noah Wilder

Aidric's second in command. A dutiful boy, he is good at keeping his calm and coming up with plans on the fly. He's cool and quite popular, also Emily's ex. He and Clara have a close, sibling-like relationship.

!! Tropes:
* MindOverMatter
* TheLancer

!! Resa Jones

One of the younger members of the Messiah Complex, Resa is a former student of SIN, and is easily identified by her messy silver hair (or premature grey) and pair of enormous grey wings.
She's a little bitchy when the mood takes her, and prone to sarcasm, but is otherwise pretty friendly.

!! Tropes
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Lessened as of late
* HeroicAlbino: Not technically albino but...
* MessyHair: No comb shall tame it!
* WingedHumanoid: An obvious one.
* CoolBigSis: To Aryil.
* BigEater: To compensate for the amount of energy she uses.
* AnOddPlaceToSleep: For the same reasons above.
* Can'tHoldHisLiquor: A couple of glasses (of wine) will get her tipsy.
* KidsareCruel: Being pushed off a roof by a bunch of giggling children waiting to see the show is not nice.
* NobodyCallsMeChicken: To stupid extents.
* NotAMorningPerson
* PinkIsForSissies: Averted, she actually likes her pink things. Sometimes.
* SkilledButNaive: Not so wide-eyed as you'd think, but this still counts.
* MamaBear: To annoying levels

* WeUsedToBeFriends: Happened to her a couple of times.
* BuffySpeak: Is prone to this occasionally, especially around people she likes.
* HatesBeingTouched - On the wings, especially since Tartarus
* TheyWouldCutYouUp - Alexa did this
* PlayingWIthSyringes - Why she has a fear of them, and Alexa

!! Tropes:
* ChaoticEvil
* BloodKnight
* HeelFaceTurn
* BoisterousBruiser
* HeelFaceTurn
* SpikesOfVillainy
* LargeHam
* NoIndoorVoice
* BodyHorror - Her powers
* HotBlooded

* ItAmusedMe - Ackerly does everything ForTheLulz.
* LaughingMad
* SlasherSmile
* TokenEvilTeammate - Yeah, the only real moral difference between Ackerly and Gabriel or Arco is that she happens to be working with the heroes.


!The Wise Men

The almighty rulers of Arcadia, the Wise Man is a council formed by the most influential and powerful people in the city, whose individual jobs keep it running. Officially there are 24 members, each one represented by a letter from the Greek alphabet, with Wise Man Omega as the leader. Since a ''coup'' was pulled in the council years prior to the beggining of the story, there hasn't been anyone to sit on the chair of Omega, and the remaining members work on equal grounds of power. For how much longer this balance will remain is anyone's guess.

!! Tropes that apply for the whole council:

* BigBadDuumvirate
* CosmopolitanCouncil

!!Wise Man Α, Dimitri Ener

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

!! Tropes:
* OlderThanTheyLook
* MagnificentBastard

!!Wise Man Σ, Giovanni Del Arcobaleno

Giovanni (or "Arco", as he likes being called) is one of the youngest Wise Men to date, sitting on the chair of Sigma. Obtaining his position by inheriting it from his father, he also obtained control of [[TheAlcatraz Tartarus]], Arcadia's political prison, where all of those whose "ideas" clash with what the council envisioned are sent to. If that wasn't bad enough for them, Warden Arco just happens to be a sadist who abuses the crap out of the inmates for kicks regularly. Thought usually presenting himself as a cheerful, rather effeminate playboy who only wants to enjoy life, Arco is cunning, manipulative and ultimately only works for himself.

!! Tropes:

* {{Bishounen}}
* BunnyEarsLawyer: He is absurdly camp and narcisistic, but he is also feared by almost anyone who saw what he is truly capable of.
* CampStraight
* DarkIsEvil: His powers are represented by coiling shadows and mist-like darkness.
* FashionVictimVillain: The problem is not much his wardrobe as it is his obsession with colors. One day he is covered from head to toes in shades of green, the next in shades of pink, and the one after that in shades of magenta.
* GravityMaster
* NeutralEvil
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair, and green hair, and hot pink hair, and...

!! Wise Man Λ, Mama Lulu

One Lucille Gorski, under the alias Lulu later to become Mama Lulu, opened a high class bordello on the edge on the Slums to cater to other Users and their sexual needs, hiring Normals and down on their luck Users as her “pets.” Through this business, she was able to make some powerful connections, and learn a few tantalizing secrets, which eventually led to her becoming a Wiseman herself.


* BandOfBrothels: This was how her empire began and continues to function.
* CoolOldLady: Depends on who you ask, but some do actually consider her this.
* CoolPet: Her leopards Morris and Dorris certainly qualify.
* HarmfulToMinors: See above. Also was the one to raise Sebastian Moliere... which might explain a few things.
* HighClassCallGirl: In her youth.
* MrsRobinson: Along with her kink for Normals, she also has a preference for young men anywhere from 16 to 24.

!The Elite

!!Alexandra Flores

Alexa is the insect-controlling scientist in charge of studying the differences between Normals and Power Users - in order to serve the Wiseman's propaganda mill.

!! Tropes:
* ForScience
* BlackAndNerdy
* BerserkButton: Probably not a good idea to refer to all insects as "bugs" in front of her.
* BeeBeeGun: One possible use of her powers
* BeetleMania
* AFriendToBugs
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: To Carlotta
* LoveTriangle: With Carlotta and Syrin.

!!Emily Pennington

Emily was one of the top students in SIN Academy, a member of the Elite, and it's been mentioned that she seems to be right on track for a position in the Wise Men. She has even become Arco's assistant. She's a Teleporter and, when injured badly enough, her power switches to telekinesis. Despite how she presents herself as a proper young lady, she is very unstable and very, very disturbed. She is also obsessed with her classmate, fellow Elite member, and ex boyfriend Noah. Almost all her free time is spent stalking the unfortunate young man. Woe be to any young lady that tries to get involved with him on her watch....

* DarkActionGirl

* {{Yandere}}
* ZettaiRyouiki: When wearing her school uniform, she wears thigh high stockings, allowing for this.
* TheDragon: To Arco
* VillainousFriendship: Type 1 with Arco, Type Two with Alessa
** UnholyMatrimony: A bit one sided for Emily [[SarcasmMode (Big surprise there)]], but it doesn't appear that Arco does much to dissuade her affections for him, even if he doesn't return them.
* MadLove: In SPADES for Noah and shades of this for Arco.
* AmIJustAToyToYou: She wonders if this is how Arco feels for her.

!!Gabriel Lazriel

Gabe is your average loather of all Normals who wishes that they would all be exterminated. He controls LIGHTNING!

* ShockAndAwe
* FauxAffablyEvil
* WickedCultured
* ManOfWealthAndTaste

!!Morgan Hunter

Morgan is a busy woman. Not only does she own and work at her own bar- Sherrera's- in Thea's Plaza, she is also a member of the Elite and is currently attending college for her Master's Degree in Business. When she's not doing any of those, she is busy doing charity work in the Slums. Her goal is to become a Wiseman and change the system from the inside out, but even she knows how hard of a job that is going to be.

!! Tropes:

* TheBartender: Naturally.
* ConflictingLoyalty: While she fights on the side of the Elite, she's still determined to keep as many of her friends within the Messiah Complex alive as possible.
* KeepingSecretsSucks: Especially when your boyfriend is an interrogator and your partner in the field is willing to do whatever is necessary to keep the peace.

* ToBeLawfulOrGood: Has this conflict with herself whenever facing the Messiah Complex or its individual members.

!!Nathaniel Webb

* MyCountryRightOrWrong

!!Valentine Svarc

A shape-shifting Master of Disguise, Valentine has a strong moral compass - it's a pity that it generally points south.

!! Tropes:

* EvenEvilHasStandards
* FalseFriend: To Gabriel Lazriel
* LawfulEvil
* MasterActor
* MasterOfDisguise

* TheFundamentalist

!!XIII, "The Watchdog".
A woman with no past, no emotional attachments, and no mercy. Thought she is "officially" a part of the Elite, with authority on par with the Grand Justicar himself, XIII is the eyes, ears, and crushing hands of the Wise Men, the thirtheenth to occupy the position. She's the only non-member to observe their meetings, and takes her orders directly from them, and she never hesitates when it comes to execute them. XIII's position in the Elite has no official name, but the regular soldiers refer derogatively to her as "Watchdog". Her power is the healing factor, which coupled with cybernetic implants that make her stronger, faster, and more resistant than the avarage person, makes her an implacable force.

!! Tropes:

* {{Badass}}
* BadassInANiceSuit
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome
* CoolCar: An armor-plated black Ferrari. And it's possibly the only thing she has something that could be called "affection" towards.
* CoolShades
* DarkActionGirl
* TheDragon: To the Wise Men.
* FacialMarkings: A small black crescent mark under her left eye.
* GoodThingYouCanHeal
* PunchClockVillain: She doesn't serve the Wise Men themselves, but their positions. She will always obey their orders, but not necessarily agree with them or their ideals.
* TheStoic: If you're lucky, you can get an annoyed frown or a smug half-smirk, but that's about it.
* UndyingLoyalty: To the Wise Men.
* WeaponOfChoice:Plenty.
** GunsAkimbo: Customized automatic handguns with the Wise Men's symbol on the handle.
** KnifeNut: Black bladed army knives which she [[DualWielding Dual Wields]].
** MoreDakka: A machine gun that she keeps in her car.
** SawedOffShotgun: Which she keeps stashed in her car.
** SniperRifle: Stashed in the car.
* YouAreNumberSix

!SIN Academy Students

!!Anya Mori

Saved by Dimitri from a sudden fire, the girl now owes the man her life.
Working her way into the ranks of the Elite, she'll do whatever she can to be of use (Buuut since Dimitri rarely calls on her personally, she tends to take jobs from random others within the city).
Protect what's important to you, since everyone is simply protecting what's important to them!

!!Aryil Caeren

Short and soft-spoken, Aryil is girl who desires nothing more than to leave SIN Academy in one piece. Bullied by her peers and used as target practice on a good day, her healing powers tend to give her more grief than actual good. She's appalled by the treatment Normals receive, but is considering joining the Elite anyways to ensure that her family and friends will remain safe.

!! Tropes:
* MyNaymeIs: Her name is pronounced Ahh-ree-elle and is essentially just a weird way of spelling Ariel. Has shades of PsmithPsyndrome.
* [[DarkSkinnedBlond Dark Skinned Blonde]]: Aryil has a distinctive tan skintone.
* ShrinkingViolet: Only at school.
* {{Dojikko}}
* [[NiceGuy Nice Girl]]: Her real personality, with shades of ThePollyanna.
** BewareTheNiceOnes: After terrifying Aryil to the point of giving her a panic attack, Resa attempts to do damage control and say that Aryil is the most important person to her. Instead of [[HeartwarmingMoment its intended purpose]], Aryil [[RageBreakingPoint SNAPS]] and viciously calls Resa out [[CallingTheOldManOut on having never been there for her.]]
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Laura.
** PatientChildhoodLoveInterest: Aryil would have been willing to wait forever--or step away, if Laura picked someone else.
** SchoolgirlLesbians: Literally, in this case.
** TwiceShy
* MoeCouplet: With Laura.
* HealingFactor
** GoodThingYouCanHeal
** HealingHands: Inherited from her grandmother.
** AchillesHeel: Aryil has no immune defenses to speak of, and if her powers were ever shut off, she could die from something as small as a papercut or someone sneezing on her.
* TheWoobie
* BreakTheCutie
* IJustWantToHaveFriends
* WorldOfNoGrandparents: Averted! Aryil is [[HappilyAdopted adopted]] by her grandfather because...
* DeathByOriginStory: ...her home was burnt down due to an Elite raid, with everyone still inside. Aryil only survived due to her healing abilities.
** InfantImmortality: Literally, in this case. However, [[WouldHurtAChild the Elite intended to kill her]] because they assumed she was also a Normal.
** LockedOutOfTheLoop: Aryil has no idea her parents were Normals.
** SurvivorGuilt: Somewhat. It's not intense, but she does wonder why they had to die and [[TellMeAboutMyFather wonders who they were.]]

!!Laura Dubois

A shy, nervous, tall girl with the power to transform herself into a tree and talk to plants. She has little to no contact with her family since joining SIN Academy, and is Aryil's best friend. She wants to become an Elite solely so she can try to make her family's life better and because she would be treated better herself.

!! Tropes:
* AmbiguouslyBrown
* FloralThemeNaming: Her whole family has names that have to do with trees. Her surname means "from the forest." Laura's name comes from "laurel," as in ''laurel tree.''
* HugeSchoolgirl[=/=]OneHeadTaller: In comparison to Aryil.
* MoeCouplet: With Aryil
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Aryil.
** SchoolgirlLesbians
** TwiceShy
* ShapeShifting
** AndIMustScream: Temporary case. When Laura is fully transformed, she is very much aware of what is happening but can't move or speak until she forces herself to change back--something that is very difficult when...
** InvoluntaryShapeShifting: She can't control her power too well, and sprouts branches and leaves when she's nervous. Sudden shocks make her completely transform.
** MagicPants
* ShrinkingViolet
* TalkingToPlants
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Green Hair]]: A side-effect of her powers.

Sweet natured SIN student, doesn't like using her powers too much.

!! Sven Kivela

Perpetually on edge and always ready for a fight, Sven is often finding or causing trouble. He is busy trying to find his place within the city of Arcadia, and having worked for two Wisemen and being taken under the wing of a powerful business mogul, he's well on his way to achieving that end. If only he could manage to get that temper under control, he might go even further.

!! Tropes:

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Well, Ellie certainly did.
* BiTheWay: He has no qualms about it, either.
* DelinquentHair: Formerly had a long Mohawk, but he cut it to try and appear more professional
* HotBlooded: A bit of an understatement.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Surprisingly doesn't take much to find it.
* TheNicknamer: Uses nicknames (such as "Birdie" for Vance or "Legs" for Anya)because of his crap memory but rather inconstantly.

!Other Characters

!!Adam Monroe

Aryil's grandfather, Adam is a kindly old man who owns an antique clock shop in Thea's Plaza. His wife died many years ago due to the nature of her powers and his daughter and son-in-law--Aryil's parents--were killed in an Elite raid on Acheron's Run.

** YouAlreadyChangedThePast
* MyFutureSelfAndMe: Adam occasionally dabbles in this when he ventures to the past, creating a bit of a [[StableTimeLoop time loop.]]

** HeartbrokenBadass: He can't handle the heartbreak of losing his wife and daughter.
* TimeStandsStill: A bit. He slows down time instead of stopping it completely, however.

!! Corinne Zhang

A 20 year old robotics geek, Corinne was abandoned by her parents when the war hit. A woman who doesn't want to grow up, Corinne's more than happy to just keep on trucking, partying, and generally being annoying as hell. She joined the Messiah Complex because it sounded fun--but only time will tell if she'll regret her decision.

!! Tropes
* Technopath: Complete with conversing and arguing with her technology.
* BuffySpeak: Delves into this sometimes.
* AsianAndNerdy
* ReallyGetsAround: Corinne enjoys sex. A ''lot.''
** MasterOfTheMixedMessage: Toward Mai, intentionally. Corinne has commitment issues.
