[[folder:Player Characters]]

!!The Player Characters:
As the four characters met in the Tinkerer/Academic quest chain are implied to be the canonical player characters, this page will refer to them by their names from said quest chain.

The characters have tropes specific to them, as well as those that apply to their entire group. This is for the latter.
----
* AnAdventurerIsYou
* NoNameGiven: Except when you meet each of the other classes as an NPC when you aren't playing as them.
* VideoGameDashing: All 9 classes have access to the Dash skill, which was formerly exclusive to the Warrior.


!!The Warrior (Shian)

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/warrior_2.png]]

An adventurer training to follow in the footsteps of his father, the warrior attempts to rescue a girl of Ironwood Village from attacking monsters. Little does he know, she's no ordinary girl, and his fateful journey has only just begun...

He can become either a [[MightyGlacier Mercenary]] (and later a Barbarian or Destroyer) or a [[MasterSwordsman Sword Master]] (and later a Lunar Knight/Moon Lord or Gladiator). He has a special class tree known as the Avenger, which advances to the Dark Avenger.
----
* AssKickingPose: The Sword Master's Hacking Stance. Murderous in [[PlayerVersusEnvironment PVE]]. In PVP [[AwesomeButImpractical everyone just keeps their distance]].
** It's still murderous in PvP if you're dumb or unlucky enough to get caught in it.
** Parry Stance (100% parry chance -- read: invincibility) also qualifies especially when paired with Counter Slash or Counter Wave. The Lunar Knight's Flash Stance is even better, allowing him to barrage enemies with {{Sword Beam}}s.
** Flash Stance all but demolishes most mobs at a nice, safe distance with powerful SwordBeams that explode on contact with an enemy for splash damage. In case they're coming in a line there's also a function to shoot slower waves that pierce through multiple foes instead.
* TheBerserker: Downplayed. After specializing as a Barbarian, the Mercenary gains access to a passive skill that buffs him as his health drops. ...Maintaining this buff while keeping your HP high enough to tank is a bit troublesome. He has since been reworked to no longer have this mechanic.
* DarkIsNotEvil: The Avenger class route (a limited-time special class) harnesses darkness to shoots waves of blood red energy, makes spikes appear from the ground to impale your foes, and transform into a winged, horned demon to bolster your attacks. That said, he mostly follows the standard storyline, so it's clear that he's still very much on the side of good.
* DifficultButAwesome: The Lunar Knight, but in this case it's purely for statistical reasons. Building a Lunar Knight requires you to stack up on ''Intellect'', the Warrior's lowest base stat. However, the class more than makes up for it with truly immense damage potential.
* DisappearedDad: Trying to find him is the reason the Warrior initially sets out.
* LightningBruiser: Warriors have very high Strength and fairly average Vitality, not to mention his dash.
* MakeMeWannaShout: The Mercenary class has a large variety of 'Howl' skills which do exactly that. One of the strongest ''creates a vacuum when he inhales'' to pull more enemies into its blast radius.
* MightyGlacier: The Mercenary isn't quite as fast paced as the Swordsman, but makes up for it with better durability and attacks that have more destructive impact.
* NonIndicativeName: The '''Dark''' Avenger class happens to deal fire instead of darkness damage with his skills.
* NoSell: The Mercenary's Lifesaver ability negates all damage for up to one minute when an affected character has a single hit point remaining, and his Iron Skin resists most debilitating StandardStatusEffects. Post-rework, Lifesaver gives him stacks which greatly increase his Strength, at cost of 35% of his max health.
* PhysicalFitnessPunishment: Being the most physical class in the game, he does this to himself. Most people bite their nails when they're nervous. He does anxiety push-ups.
* ScreamingWarrior: Not counting his [[MakeMeWannaShout howls]], the Mercenary tends to [[VoiceGrunting shout or grunt]] during most of his skills.
* StuffBlowingUp: The Mercenary's specialty, with multiple skills that cause massive explosions and one that produces a grenade from thin air.
* SwordBeam: Sword Masters and Dark Avengers love this trope. Sword Master's Magic Skill tree has these. The Lunar Knight/Moon Lord elevates the trope to an art form. Dark Avenger's Ultimate Skill, Death Knell, sends almost a dozen of these before finishing with a rolling smash. That's not even counting Piercing Crescent and Vengeance storm.
* SwordPlant: The Warrior has this pose during the character creation screen.
* ViolationOfCommonSense: Becoming a Lunar Knight/Moonlord has you stack ''Intellect'' instead of Strength, which starts off fairly difficult at first.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: The Dark Avenger's transformation causes this. [[FridgeLogic Oddly enough, the damage you take isn't affected despite your sudden lack of armor.]]

!!The Archer (Triana)

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/archer_2.png]]

An elf learning her place in the world, she too sets out from Ironwood Village to rescue the red-haired girl. As she travels, she undergoes her ''[[BecauseDestinySaysSo telezia]]'', a process by which she learns her destiny, which is tied to the destiny of the Prophet herself...

She can become either a [[ArcherArchetype Sharpshooter]] (and later a Sniper or Warden/Artillery) or an [[KickChick Acrobat]] (and later a Windwalker or Tempest). She has a special class tree known as the Hunter, which advances into the Silver Hunter.
----
* ArcherArchetype: The Sharpshooter, although she has more of a focus on {{Trick Arrow}}s if she relies on her magic skills more.
* AutomaticCrossbows: The Archer's crossbow acts for all intents and purposes like a three-round-burst submachine gun.
* CooldownManipulation: The Windwalker's Showtime! skill drastically reduces the cooldown of her passive attack skills for a certain duration, allowing her to dart around the battlefield and spam her attacks like crazy.
* CriticalHitClass: The Sniper, oh so much, to the point where one of her skills boosts critical hit damage.
* DeathFromAbove: The sharpshooter's Aerial Chain Shot can be considered this, while the acrobat can turn herself into this with Eagle Dive and Falling Star.
* DifficultButAwesome: The Acrobat isn't too difficult to play and is easy to pick up, but her difficulty comes from using all her skills to their full potential to maximize her damage output.
* GlassCannon: Fantastic damage potential from afar as a Sharpshooter or up close as an Acrobat, but is very fragile, and needs to occasionally reposition or evade attacks.
* GreenThumb: The sniper has the ability to summon a flower to draw aggro and buff her [[OneStatToRuleThemAll Final Damage]].
* KickChick: The Acrobat uses her feet more often than she uses her bow.
* LightIsGood: The Silver Hunter uses light-based arrow skills, and is just as heroic as the other characters.
* MoreDakka: The Sniper and the Warden specialize in this trope to a T. The Silver Hunter also has shades of this.
* {{Multishot}}: Go on, guess which skill! [[spoiler:It's Multi Shot.]]
* MysticalWhiteHair: The Silver Hunter gains this upon transformation.
* NoArcInArchery: Applies to most of her skills. However, both Rain of Arrows and Aerial Chain Shot EX's second pulse have an arc.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: The Tempest is ''very'' capable of this with her skills.
* NobleBirdOfPrey: The Silver Hunter has a falcon companion she can summon, and it's surprisingly very powerful.
* NotQuiteFlight: The Windwalker is capable of leaping high distances, and can extend her air time indefinitely (with practice) while the Showtime! buff is active.
* RainOfArrows: One of the Sharpshooter's skills is a one-elf version of this.
* TrickArrow: The Warden specialises in explosive magic arrows. Especially with post-revamp Frag Arrow and Swift Shot; Frag leaves a 'core' on the field, and the Warden can choose to shoot Swift's arrows out of the core instead of from her bow. Doesn't get much trickier than a magic bomb arrow that turns into a bow after blowing up.

!!The Cleric (Edan)

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cleric_2.png]]

A young member of the Divine Order, sent to Mana Ridge to guard the Sage's Staff. It is soon stolen by Dragon Cultists, and as he sets out to retrieve it, he discovers that someone he knows may not be who he appears... After discovering that his close friend is actually a Dragon Cultist, he leaves the Divine Order so that he can protect the Prophet from anyone who would try to abuse her power, without allegiances to any side or organization getting in the way.

He can become either a [[CombatMedic Priest]] (and later a [[WhiteMage Saint]] or [[CombatMedic Inquisitor]]) or a [[ThePaladin Paladin]] (and later a Crusader or [[StoneWall Guardian]]). He has a special class tree known as the Heretic, which promotes to the Arch Heretic.
----
* {{Bishonen}}
* ChurchMilitant: The Divine Order does appear to be some sort of religious organisation...
* DarkIsNotEvil: The Arch Heretic class uses darkness based skills, but his description states that he is not evil, he is simply of a different faith.
* DifficultButAwesome: He is the first class to be labeled under the Expert difficulty. Though not quite to the extent of the Lencea and Machina, he has shades of this early on. Early game, his damage is pretty low and his only saving grace is his high defenses, not to mention his lack of mobility compared to the other classes. But once he promotes to either Paladin or Priest, that's when he really starts to shine.
** The Crusader is notable for being one of the most expensive classes to fund effectively, given that he requires a very heavy focus on 3 stats: Strength, Magic, and Light elemental damage. They're also one of the most damaging classes in the game, while retaining their natural bulk.
* EmancipatedChild
* LightningBruiser: Thanks to gaining the Warrior's Dash skill, the Paladin becomes this, quickly charging into the fray and taking enemies down. The Priest is also this, thanks to his numerous buffs to boost his and his allies stats.
* NiceGuy: Ever polite and courteous, even when dealing with the [[{{Jerkass}} Sorceresses.]]
* ObliviousToLove: He doesn't seem to notice that the Lencea has a crush on him.
* ReverseGrip: The Cleric does this during his turn animation with his mace in the character creation screen.
* ShieldBash: One the the cleric's first skills is this, with the Mace and Wand having a ShieldBash in their normal attacks. The Paladin can also perform this as a CounterAttack after blocking an attack.
* ShockAndAwe: The cleric has a few skills that do this, especially after getting his third class.
** ChainLightning: One of the priest's offensive skills.
* StoneWall: The cleric is tankier than most other classes, and becomes a full-blown tank if he goes Paladin. Even as a Priest, a good cleric will act as the party's tank if they need one and there's no actual tank. Taken UpToEleven as a Guardian.
* SupportPartyMember: The Priest (and subclasses, moreso the Saint) is primarily this, but [[CombatMedic he is NOT to be underestimated in combat]].
* ThePaladin: ...Yeah, if you can't figure it out, we're not gonna tell you.
** WhiteMage: The Saint is primarily this, having access to better heals and relics.
* TheTurretMaster: The priest has access to a few relics, which he can use to support the party.
* WhipSword: When transformed, the Arch Heretic uses a whipblade in battle.

!!The Sorceress (Angelica)

[[quoteright:342:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sorceress_2.png]]

Once a member of the Astral Coven, she left to see the world, and ended up gambling her money away. Retreating back to her former home to escape her debts, she stumbles upon a cleric caravan under attack by monsters. By saving them, she is drawn into a nefarious plot that could change the future of the world...

She can become either an [[ElementalPowers Elementalist/Elemental Lord]] (and later a [[PlayingWithFire Pyromancer/Saleana]] or [[AnIcePerson Ice Witch/Elestra]]) or a [[YinYangBomb Mystic/Force User]] (and later a War Mage/Smasher or [[GravityMaster Chaos Mage/Majesty]]). She has a special class tree known as the Mara, which ascends to the Black Mara.
----
* AnIcePerson: The Elementalist can use ice. Even more so as Ice Witch/Elestra.
* DarkIsNotEvil: The Black Mara wields a SinisterScythe and has some pretty terrifying dark magic at her disposal, but her storyline is the same as the rest of the classes.
* DealWithTheDevil: The Black Mara forms a contract with the Spirit of Death for her powers, which terrifies everyone who can see said spirit.
* DeathFromAbove: The Mystic can summon comets, and the War Mage can summon a [[WaveMotionGun giant laser from the sky]].
* FullContactMagic: Compared to the other classes, the Black Mara has a couple skills that are basically physical in nature.
* GlassCannon: And HOW. Her damage output is ''insane'', but her Vitality and HP are lacking.
* LadyOfBlackMagic: Sans the personality.
* MsFanservice: Given that her outfits often sport a CleavageWindow or a SexyBacklessOutfit, she's definitely this.
* NoblewomansLaugh: Indulges in this occasionally. Also, her laugh gesture.
* PlayingWithFire: The Elementalist can also use fire. Even more so as Pyromancer/Saleana.
* PowerOfTheVoid: Her dark magics, with added elements of...
** FrickinLaserBeams: The War Mage uses these, but strangely, they're not light-elemental.
** GravityMaster: The Chaos Mage specialises in manipulating gravity.
** TimeMaster
* SinisterScythe: The Black Mara wields one when she transforms.
* SupportPartyMember: Definitely not to the extent of the Cleric, but the Mystic's skills are designed to leave enemies vulnerable to her allies' attacks. The Ice Witch's ice spells are also designed to slow enemies down enough to leave them vulnerable.
* TheTrickster: The Chaos Mage is capable of stealing one of her opponent's buffs, while buffing up her own Dark damage.
* TrappedByGamblingDebts: She uses her scholarship to gamble in hope of getting more money [[spoiler:for her poor family]], and she failed.
* YourSoulIsMine: The Black Mara put her soul on a contract with the spirit of Death.

!!The Academic/Tinkerer (Camelia/Commelina) [[spoiler:(XD-26)]]

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/academic2_2.png]]

Sent back in time to stop a rogue automaton known as Apocalypse and save her future, she emerges from her time machine to find herself deaged into a twelve-year-old girl. As she looks for a way to save her time, she keeps running into four legendary adventurers, and becomes drawn into their quest despite her attempts to keep herself away. In saving the future, will she become a legend herself...? After finding another girl that looks exactly like her, she discovers her true origin and Jasmine's true intention of sending her back to time.

She can become either an [[GlassCannon Alchemist]] (and later an Adept or [[CombatMedic Physician]]) or an [[TheEngineer Engineer]]/[[note]]Mechanic [[DubNameChange in the original version]].[[/note]] (and later a Gear Master or Shooting Star). Her special class tree is known as the Ray Mechanic.
----
* AndIMustScream: XD-07 tells the Tinkerer [[spoiler:that if a clone's jewel heart runs out of power, she will lose control over her body, but still remain conscious for weeks, presumably until the body itself dies.]]
* [[spoiler:ArtificialHuman: She was created by Jasmine using a jewel with mysterious power. The jewel was split into 30 fragments and implanted into 30 clones of herself. She was one of the test-clone with short life-span.]]
* BadassAdorable: A cute little girl who happens to have an absolutely terrifying arsenal of machines and magic at her disposal.
* BreakTheCutie: Her entire second job change quest is this.
* CassandraTruth: Nobody takes her warnings about the future seriously.
* CutsceneIncompetence: She did nothing but stare when Bishop Ignacio kidnaps Rose, even though she volunteered to guard Rose for Geraint.
* DidYouActuallyBelieve: Her mission on being sent to avert the BadFuture was a lie. She was sent to the past as a test clone for the better version of her clones.
* DubNameChange: Known as Camelia in the NA translation.
* FrickinLaserBeams: The Ray Mechanic's skills specialize in shooting all sorts of lasers.
* FusionDance: In spirit, if not in fact. As of a recent revamp, the Engineer has gained a toggleable skill called Mechanic Mode, which lets her fire her turrets' projectiles from her cannon, at the cost of being unable to summon the turrets themselves while in MM.
* GlassCannon: Considering she looks like a little girl, this is to be expected, but her damage output is incredibly high.
* HyperspaceMallet: One of her skills. Sadly, it only works against stunned enemies, not ignorant teammates.
* LightEmUp: The Ray Mechanic uses light-based skills.
* MagicalGirl: The Ray Mechanic, combined with HumongousMecha to boot.
* MeaningfulName: Commelina flowers are known to have a short lifespan.
* {{Meganekko}}
* OlderThanTheyLook: You know that 12-year-old girl with all those wonderful toys? She's not 12. [[spoiler:[[YoungerThanTheyLook Except that was another of Jasmine's lies.]]]]
* PoisonousPerson: The Physician loves using poison in her skillset.
* RocketJump: The Academic has such a skill(as the Mechanic 2nd Job). It launch her back or forward(after dashing by pressing the right mouse button) and it does damage to monsters instead of herself.
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: Her mission. [[spoiler:Except it isn't...]]
* SmallGirlBigGun
* SupportPartyMember: The Physician has a good variety of buffs and heals for herself and her party, but can also help out with her deadly poisons.
* TheBeastmaster: Combined with SummonMagic by the Alchemist, with her slime bubbles and ice hand, and TheEngineer by... the Engineer, with her turrets and robot ducks.
* TheTurretMaster: The Academic in her Mechanic 2nd Job has access to 3 types of turrets.
* TimeTravel: One of the main shticks behind her character.
* TokenMiniMoe: The smallest playable character to date.
* UnwittingPawn: To Jasmine. Once the tinkerer finds out she's a clone, Jasmine taunts her and ditches her for good.
* WalkingSpoiler
* WasItAllALie: Once she learns she was nothing but Jasmine's clone sent to the past as a test clone, who will expire in a few days and die.
* YouAreNumberSix: She is just one of the 26 test-clones with short life-span sent to the past to destroy the world that cause the BadFuture. All those clones are not supposed to meet each other.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Once she finds out that she's a clone called XD-26, [[BitchInSheepsClothing Jasmine drops her fake sisterly attitude and coldly ditches her.]]
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler:During her specialization quest, XD-07 takes steps to help the Tinkerer avoid this fate by stabilizing the Tinker's artificial heart, with the intention of then stealing it to save herself.]]

!!The Kali

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kali.png]]

The Kali was born on the same day as Rose and raised in secret as another destiny girl by her master Gaharam. Her adventure starts when her hometown is destroyed and all the residents killed by Lambert, including her master. Being the sole survivor of the village, she summons Gaharam's soul to find out what happened and ends up being entrusted with the mission to find and protect the Prophet in Prairie Town where the Star of Destiny appeared.

She can become either a [[DanceBattler Dancer]] (and later a Blade Dancer or a Spirit Dancer), or a [[DarkIsNotEvil Screamer]] (and later a Soul Eater or Dark Summoner). She has a special class tree known as the Oracle, which becomes the Oracle Elder.
----
* AmbiguouslyHuman: It's not known whether she's closer to a human or an elf, given her UnusualEars.
* BareYourMidriff
* CombatHandFan: Mainly the Screamer, but the Dancer can use one too.
* DanceBattler: Her Dancer route. More so as Blade Dancer.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Some of her skills are dark element, and as a Screamer she uses more darkness. She's every bit as heroic as the other classes, though.
* DoomedHometown: Was sent away by Gaharam because it was prophesied that the village would be destroyed.
* DualWielding: Wields dual fans or chakrams.
* JigglePhysics: Her assets bounce when she laughs, dances and runs.
* LadyOfWar: She is very graceful in her attacks as she flips and dances.
* LastOfHisKind: She's the sole survivor of her village's massacre. [[spoiler:But even beyond that, she's actually the reincarnation of one of the last Ancients left in the world.]]
* LightEmUp: The Oracle Elder specializes in the Light element, in contrast to the Screamer, who uses Darkness.
* MsFanservice: Easily the most fanservicey of the female classes, even with the Sorceress.
* NamesTheSame: Her Screamer class is totally '''NOT''' that [[ScreamerPrank kind of screamer.]]
* NoNameGiven: Unlike the other classes, the Kali doesn't have a canonical name, and is only referred to as the Shadow Prophet in the story.
* OrgasmicCombat: Some of her skills certainly give this impression, with her saying things like "More! More! MORE!" and "''Come'' to me!".
* {{Revenge}}: She wants to kill Lambert for destroying her village and killing her master.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Justified due to her shaman-ish culture.
* TheChosenOne: [[spoiler:Which came at a terrible price...]]
* ThisIsUnforgivable: To Liam/Lambert. The feeling is mutual, given her status as an Ancient and Liam's past involving them.
* UnusualEars: Which brings up the question as to what race she is.

!!The Assassin (Ren)

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/assassin.png]]

A mysterious youth whose fate is tied to the woman called Lunaria. Shortly after meeting her, he finds himself possessed by a brutal assassin by the name of Illusion, and winds up jumping back and forth through time as he follows Lunaria on her unknown mission.

He can become a [[{{Ninja}} Shinobi/Chaser]] (and later a Raven or Reaper/Ripper) or a [[YinYangBomb Taoist/Bringer]] (and later a Light Bringer/Light Fury or Abyss Walker).
----
* {{Bishonen}}: Similar to the Cleric, the Assassin is quite attractive.
* DoppelgangerAttack: Can create shadow clones to attack independently.
* ElementalPowers
** CastingAShadow: Raven and Abyss Walker
** HolyHandGrenade: Light Bringer/Light Fury
** PlayingWithFire: Reaper/Ripper
* EnergyBall: The Light Bringer/Light Fury's Sunshine Spark.
* EvilLaugh: He lets out a pretty creepy laugh when using some of his skills as a Shinobi. [[spoiler:Might be due to Illusion's possession.]]
* FlashStep: Both of his specializations can learn variants of this.
* FragileSpeedster: Has by far the lowest defense of any of the male characters, but with plenty of mobility and evasion skills to make up for it.
** GlassCannon: He can also put out some very impressive damage to go with his mobility.
* NinjaLog: His special evasion skill, Decoy, lets him break out of an enemy combo and leave a log in his place.
* [[spoiler:ProtagonistJourneyToVillain: He grows up to become Illusion, the fourth Apostle.]]
* ReluctantHero: Or so he says. He often needs a bit of prodding to go do something but he's ultimately a genuinely good person who often does things out of good will (or from a player's point of view, EXP and Gold). [[spoiler: At least until his descent into villainy.]]
* StockNinjaWeaponry: Uses plenty of these as a Shinobi, including kunai, kusarigama, shuriken, smoke bombs, etc.
* SummonMagic: In addition to his doppelgangers, a Taoist can also summon a ninja cat, raccoon, or bunny to aid him.
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: Illusion takes this role early on in the Assassin's story.
** EnemyWithout: He winds up battling Illusion multiple times throughout his story.

!!The Lencea (Charlotte)

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lancea.png]]

A daughter of noble birth, she and her family are secret members of the Ironfist Company, a clandestine band of mercenaries founded by Varnak, one of the six heroes of the Dragon Raid. The Lencea and her sister Eltia form a BrainsAndBrawn duo, with Lencea electing to hit first and ask later, and Eltia acting as her MissionControl. When a simple mission goes awry and their father winds up missing, the two of them set out to find answers.

Currently, she only has one class branch: the Lancer/Piercer, who can later specialize into either a Dragoon/Flurry or a Valkyrie/Sting Breezer.
----
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: She obviously has a crush on the Cleric, but he's oblivious to it.
* ArmorPiercingAttack: The Dragoon specializes in exposing enemies' weak points for her and her allies to rip into.
* BadassAdorable: She's a cute and energetic girl who's incredibly proficient with a spear.
* BladeOnAStick
* DifficultButAwesome: The Lencea is the second class to be labeled under the Expert difficulty, and for good reason. On promotion, she initially gained a skill which greatly boosts her final damage and overall speed, at the cost of making her lethargic if used too much. You ''really'' do not want to become lethargic as you slow down and start losing a percentage of your health every time you use a skill. Learning how to manage this mechanic is crucial to success with Lencea. But as of now, it has been reworked to give her additional movement speed instead when it reaches the limit, encouraging her to play more aggressively and making her easier to play.
** The Valkyrie (and the magic skill tree in general) becomes even more difficult mechanic-wise and gameplay-wise. The magic skill tree's damage is ''awful'' at lower levels, and requires more investment than the physical skill tree. One of her methods of damage output comes from having to use a skill which turns her SwordBeam into homing attacks, dealing a lot more damage than usual. The problem? Said skill only hits one target, and if you miss or hit the wrong target, it results in a loss in damage. If you can aim it right, the Valkyrie can rival the Dragoon in sheer damage.
* TheDitz: Her dialogue in the story seems to indicate this.
* HolyHandGrenade: As a Valkyrie, most of her attacks are light-themed.
* LittleMissBadass: She's slightly shorter than the female classes, though not to the extent of the Tinkerer or the Machina.
* MightyGlacier: Many of her most powerful attacks require charging, but she's got the highest defense of any female character to make up for it.
** LightningBruiser: She has two skills which boost her overall speed, and she also gains a dash, making her this trope.
* TheLadette
* SwordBeam: With spears, but the point still stands.

!!The Machina

[[quoteright:348:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_02.png]]

A dromaji girl who sports a prosthetic arm as a result of poisoning by a meteor crash, she and her fellow dromaji head to the doctor by airship to receive treatment. However, the airship was forcefully made to crash by another dromaji, and she was thrown off the rails, crashing into Ironwood Village. Receiving tutelage from a tiger-man on how to use her prosthetic arm, she sets out to find her friends and hunt down the one responsible for the airship crash.

She can only advance to Patrona, then eventually Ruina or Defensio.
----
* AntiHero: Machina is definitely one of the good guys, but her clash with the other heroes early on causes her to initially work with the Dragon Cultists.
* ArtificialLimbs: Her right arm is prosthetic. It's a result of the meteor crashing into her village and getting poisoned from it.
* BadassAdorable: You wouldn't expect that cute cat girl to be able to launch enemies far larger than she is.
* CatGirl: As seen on the initial [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/dnsea/images/b/b0/002.png/revision/latest?cb=20150711100735 concept arts]], [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/7c/0d/d3/7c0dd3cc19fc7d22a7de5a901f1e7ae1.jpg official artwork]], default customization appearance, and the Chinese anime, she has cat ears.
** BunnyGirl: ...or the player can customize her with bunny ears from the customization screen or by equipping an item.
* {{Combos}}: Her gameplay completely revolves around this trope, even moreso than the rest of the classes.
* DifficultButAwesome: Tops the Cleric and the Lencea as one of the Expert difficulty characters, Machina is easily one of the most, if not THE most mechanically demanding class to play. Learning her gameplay requires you to link many of her skills together with specific button inputs to increase their damage and reduce their cooldowns, which means ButtonMashing is out of the question. Once you ''do'' manage to master her however, she is a nigh unstoppable force to be reckoned with, tearing bosses apart with extremely long and powerful combos and easily darting from target to target.
* DynamicEntry: Can do this with a lot of her skills.
* FantasticRacism: She both receives this and shows this towards humans. She does make a few exceptions for some humans, however.
* {{Jerkass}}: She's the least pleasant out of all the character classes.
* LightningBruiser: She has very good offense and ''absurd'' mobility, and she can boost this further with her skills as a Patrona. Even moreso as a Ruina, where her offensive potential skyrockets.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: She's one of the smaller characters aside from the Tinkerer, but she wields a huge knuckle and can easily throw around large monsters.
* PowerFist: In-game, this serves are her main weapon and is labeled as a Knuckle Gear.
* {{Shoryuken}}: The Kidney Blow skill allows the Machina class to perform an uppercut with the Knuckle Gear. But not just a typical uppercut - it's that Street Fighter uppercut. She also launches herself and spins in mid-air (mimicking the ''Shinryuken'' Super Combo). If the Ruina class advancement is taken, the ability can be cast twice in quick succession, (slightly mimicking the ''Shoryureppa'' Super Combo).
* StoneWall: She is intended to be this as a Defensio, but she still retains her high damage.

----
* AdaptationDyeJob: Her eyes are blue in the Japanese version.
* BarrierMaiden: She devotes most of her power to holding the world together. She's still almost a match for the Black Knight.
* BigEater: She is always hungry and she is always angry about being hungry. The majority of the quests she gives until you get to Saint's Haven are to fetch her numerous edibles and remedies for her to snarf down in one fistful while your character watches in horror at how fast she can eat it. She guzzles ten bottles of booze in one sitting and then complains that you took too long to get so little.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow

* PunyEarthlings: She certainly snarks a lot about the insignificance of humans...
* WhatTheHellHero: She chews out the player after Gerrant dies, blaming them for his death (She's not wrong, by the way.), and the dire consequences that would result from it. She mellows down very slightly after the player gives her Gerrant's jewel, musing how there are still ''some'' things the player can do right, as it eventually allows her to bring him BackFromTheDead.
* {{Workaholic}}: She prioritizes her mission over anything.
* ZettaiRyouiki
