Considering a good deal of characterization of the ''VideoGame/{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'' characters, a Character Sheet has been made.


!Rosenkreuzstilette, the "Blades of the Rose Cross"

[[folder:Spiritia Rosenberg]]
-->''"...I can't let them get away with this!"''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Michika Kataoka\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette / Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert''

[RKS-001] Eins. [[TheHero The Heroine]] of the first game. She's a straightforward and honest young lady as well as a training instructor, treated with deep respect and admiration by even the imperial soldiers. She's [[IdiotHero naive and kind of a klutz]] and [[SuperDrowningSkills sinks like a brick in water]], but at least her fighting instincts are strong and her moral convictions are second to none. Her RKS friends call her "Tia" for short. [[spoiler:She may be the other reincarnation of Rosenkreuz other than Iris, known as the "Blade of Rosenkreuz", born with the ability that defined him most as an individual: His ability to tap into the strength of his friends]].

Her ability is called Seelegewehr, which gathers magical energy from the immediate vicinity and releases it in the form of round magical bullets, which become stronger the more they are charged. They can be used without restraint since they don't tap into her mana supply. She can also copy the abilities of any Magus she defeats and use them in combat, [[spoiler:because she may have Rosenkreuz's ability to use the powers of others]].

!!Tropes related with Spiritia:
* AndThatsTerrible: Her reaction to [[spoiler:Iris revealing herself to be]] the mastermind behind RKS's rebellion.
-->"I don't get it... I just... don't. You're not the kind of kid who would do something like this!"
* BerserkButton: Do not speak of killing [[spoiler:Iris]] in front of her.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She's pretty much a nice girl. But when her friends start a war against the Empire to build their new world and start it all off by burning the forest, she immediately fights to stop them.
* [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy:]] Part of the final battle in ''Freudenstachel'' involves [[spoiler:Freu fighting Tia, who has been brainwashed by Iris.]]
* CallingYourAttacks: She says the names of the weapons she uses when she unleashes them after fully charging them.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: In her case, defeating her friends in combat means that she is able to convince them that the rebellion is going to be less than worth it. She ends up being right [[spoiler:for [[RightForTheWrongReasons different reasons]] than she initially thought.]]
* {{Determinator}}: She never gives up, no matter what. And it's all part of her unrivaled sense of justice gig.
* DistressedDamsel: Gets captured by the Schwarzkreuz at the beginning of ''Freudenstachel''.
* ElegantGothicLolita
* ElementalBaggage: Whenever she uses an elemental weapon outside the stage she got it from (Zornebombe, Klageharnish, Freudenstachel, et cetera).
* {{Expy}}: Of VideoGame/{{Mega Man|Classic}} himself, right down to her personality. Appearance-wise, she's also one to [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Saber]].
* [[spoiler:FinalBoss:]] In ''Freudenstachel'', [[spoiler:alongside Seraph Iris, who is fought right after her.]]
* GoldAndWhiteAreDivine: The blonde hair and white shirt are both a dead giveaway.
* GoodIsNotSoft: She's rather kind and straightforward, but that doesn't mean she won't resort to violence when it's needed. She does always try the "soft" way first, though.
* GreenEyes
* HairDecorations: A [[CreepyCoolCrosses cross-shaped]] hair-clip, specifically.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold
* TheHeart
* HeroicBSOD: She gets this when [[spoiler:Iris attacks and fatally injures her after killing her father and afterwards reveals the whole, terrible truth behind the war.]] Things calm down a little when [[spoiler:Freu comes just in time to save her, and even more so when she reassures her that both #1: she will be alright despite having overdone the room-freezing attack a bit, and #2: she'll release Karl and sort out and take care of every other problem left behind by Iris]].
* [[TheHero The Heroine]]
* HotterAndSexier: It could be just AuthorAppeal, but [[ Spiritia's breasts]] has become larger and buoyant in ''Freudenstachel'' compared to her appearance [[ in the first game]].
* IAmNotLeftHanded: As a boss in ''Grollschwert'', her attack pattern is somewhat easy to avoid. When her health goes low, however, Lilli will give her a Cross Tank and then Spiritia will whip up several more powerful attacks.
* IAmWhatIAm: Even if she really were [[spoiler:the Blade of Rosenkreuz]], Lilli says that she'll always be herself.
* IdiotHair
* IdiotHero: Not only did she actually trust [[spoiler:Iris]] and take it upon herself to stop the war (by SwiperNoSwiping method no less -- though fortunately she's strong enough to fight them if it fails) without knowing that [[spoiler:she started it for laughs]], her profile even says that she's kind of a klutz and sinks like a brick in water.
** To be fair, Spiritia's friends and even Count Zeppelin (the Magi leader, who starts the whole coup) also don't know that [[spoiler:Iris has planned it all]]. The only one knowing this is Grolla. [[spoiler:Iris]] being "kidnapped" doesn't help.
* KaleidoscopeHair: As part of her PowerCopying shtick, her hair color will change to that of the Magi whose power she is currently wielding.
* KamehameHadoken: Her fully-charged Seelegewehr.
* TheKlutz
* {{Leitmotif}}: "AM Fight No. 1" by [=AM3=] (RKS title theme (later used as Luste's talk theme in RKSF)), "The Ground Which Can Shine" by Silver Chaos (RKS Opening Stage theme), "Vampire Revoluion" by Unlimited Hellest (talk theme)[[spoiler:, "Fighting Spirits" by Silver Chaos (Boss theme), "Scarlet Moon Castle" by Unlimited Hellest (RKSF Final Stage talk theme (shared with Iris)), "Awakening the Profound Evil" by Wingless Seraph (RKSF Final Boss Battle (also shared with Iris))]].
* LightIsGood
* NonElemental
* OhCrap: Quite often done when she sees that her friends are participating in the war; her expressions in seeing and realizing that are quite priceless.
** Take this particular set of dialogues for example:
--->'''Spiritia''': "Trau, not you too!? Why!?"\\
'''Trauare''': "Oh? What exactly did you take me for? A pacifist? Hardly. I just don't like wasting effort. And that's exactly what you're doing right now, Tia."\\
'''Spiritia''': "That's not true...!"
* OhNoNotAgain: As the Imperial Training Hall starts shaking for the second time after Talos flies off with Iris in tow and Lilli follows...
-->'''Spiritia''': "Not again! The place is under attack!"
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Girl]]
* PowerCopying: She has the special ability to copy others' abilities. [[spoiler:This is a trait she may inherited from Rosenkreuz.]]
* PowerDyesYourHair: Using different weapons from the other RKS members she'd fought will [[KaleidoscopeHair change her hair color]] corresponding to the hair color of the original user.
* PowerGivesYouWings: She has her Silberflügel "Eins" and Silberflügel "Zwei", both which are abilities to create platforms with wings.
* RapunzelHair: If she didn't wear her hair in a ponytail (her huge one still reaches significantly down her back regardless).
* RightForTheWrongReasons: She ends up as this [[spoiler:when she finds out that Iris had caused the events of the game to happen for her amusement, instead of her initial assumption that Count Zeppelin was behind it all]].
* SuperNotDrowningSkills: She swims like a brick, but she never drowns no matter how much time she spends in water.
* SwiperNoSwiping: She does this deal with her friends as well as Count Zeppelin.
* TaremeEyes
* TennisBoss: As a boss in ''Grollschwert'', she occasionally sics Lilli to attack you. You (as Grolla) can smack Lilli back to Tia with her sword.
* ThisCannotBe: ''"I can't believe it...! The Count is even using the forbidden arts!?"''
* ThisIsUnforgivable: She and Lilli say two variations of this trope to [[spoiler:Iris before they fight her Iris Machine at the end of the third Iris Stage]] because they blame [[spoiler:her]] for everything she did up to then.
* ThouShaltNotKill: She said this at one point after beating Grolla in the main game after already having defeated Sichte before her, states that she never wanted to kill her in the first place.
** Then again, she spends her time not killing any of her colleagues after defeating them anyway.
-->'''Freudia''': (about Spiritia's refusal to kill her) "You possess so much power, yet you cannot do something so simple? Are your ideals truly that important to you?"\\
'''Spiritia''': "This has nothing to do with ideals, Freu. I just want to protect the people from RKS as much as I want to protect the people of RKS, that's all..."
* TomatoInTheMirror: Before the FinalBoss fight, as Spiritia confronts [[spoiler:Iris]], the latter starts laughing. [[YoureInsane Spiritia and Lilli thinks she's crazy...]] before she reveals that [[spoiler:Spiritia may be the legendary Rosenkreuz's another incarnation -- "the Blade of Rosenkreuz."]]
-->'''[[spoiler:Iris]]''': "I think I might just start believing in fate now. Ahhh, the feeling of hating another with every fiber of your being... It's such an amazing rush...! Oh, I'm so anxious to rip you apart! What about you?[[spoiler:You have the power of the world's finest magician coursing through your veins.]] How does it feel? Exhilarating? Intoxicating? Exuberant? Or perhaps such a puny vessel can't fully comprehend the magnificence of it all?"\\
'''Lilli''': "[[IAmWhatIAm Tia will always be Tia!]] [[ShutUpHannibal So there!]]"\\
'''Spiritia''': "Thanks, Lilli. I don't really know if [[spoiler:I possess Rosenkreuz's spirit... Or if I'm his other incarnation or whatnot... Or if I inherited his ability to tap into the strength of others'...]] But none of that matters when it comes to magic. Freu... Zorne... Trau... Luste... Grolla... Sichte... Liebea... Schwer... and Lilli... [[ThePowerOfFriendship It's because they support me that I have the will to fight. They're the source of my power]]. [[WorldOfCardboardSpeech That much, I know for sure!]]"
* TurnsRed: Interestingly, when using Grolla's weapon, Grollschwert.
* WorthyOpponent: [[spoiler:Iris]] amused herself with watching Tia give it her all, thus thinking of her as one.
* YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe: She says this after Luste, raring to play with her, says, "Game start! I go first!"
* YoureInsane: She says this to [[spoiler:Iris when she starts laughing madly from finding out where she got all her energy]].
-->'''Lilli''': "What's wrong with her?"\\
'''Spiritia''': "[[spoiler:Iris]], have you lost your mind!?"

[[folder:Freudia Neuwahl]]
->''"[[BadassBoast I have that which I must protect... even from the hands of God!]]"''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Sou Raika\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette / Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert''

[RKS-002] Zwei. A close friend of Spiritia in RKS, despite her dislike for being close to others. A lone wolf by nature, she's cool and collected and she prefers to work alone and is capable of getting things done without anyone's assistance thanks to her many talents. Her friends call her "Freu" for short. In the sequel, she's game's [[TheHero heroine.]]

Her ability is called Freudenstachel, which allows her to gather water vapor and unleash it frozen into icicles, which become sharper in a colder area. She can also implement the abilities of her friends into [[PowerCopying learnable abilities]], three of which she uses in her boss battle.

!!Tropes related with Freudia:
* AnIcePerson
* [[AntiHero Anti-Heroine]]: She dislikes being close to others besides Spiritia.
* ApologeticAttacker: Even though she's perfectly willing to beat Spiritia down, that doesn't mean she enjoys it.
-->'''Freudia:''' "I'm sorry, Tia..."
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:As she saved Tia from Iris' attack after the latter kills her own father.]]
* BulletTime: Her Weißteufel that she acquires from Sichte.
* [[spoiler:BerserkButton: Simply put, seeing her friend Spiritia being controlled by Iris did not help improve her already very bad opinion of Iris.]]
* CallingYourAttacks: In ''Freudenstachel'', she calls out the names of both her signature Freudenstachel attack and her learnable abilities.
* ChargedAttack: Only of few of her special attack can charged up in ''Freudenstachel''.
* DidYouActuallyBelieve: ''"Do you honestly believe you can stand against the entirety of RKS on your own?"''
* DisappointedInYou: In the original game, she'll say this to Spiritia once when she responds to her "DidYouActuallyBelieve" quote above with her resolve to do what she asked her if she thought she could, and again if Tia uses up her last life against her.
* DoppelgangerAttack: Her Freudenzwinger and Kopiekreisel.
* {{Expy}}: To Roll (considering her hairstyle, hair decorations and having the same number in their own lines) and Proto Man (considering her personality and her BigDamnHeroes moment above). Her main weapon Freudenstachel is one to Needle Man's weapon.
* FrickinLaserBeams: She's rather fond of these, and they can be acquired in ''Freudenstachel''.
* FuumaShuriken: Her Frostklinge ability, which she learns from Dolis.
* GoodIsNotNice: She prefers not to be close to others despite her strong relationship with Tia.
* HairDecorations: Her big red hair ribbon, which in the sequel can change color depending on the ability she chooses.
* HarmlessFreezing: Her Eisschwert.
** Not so harmless if you're [[WeaksauceWeakness Luste]].
* HeroicAlbino
* HeroicSacrifice: She makes one [[spoiler:to save Spiritia from being killed by one last attack from Iris, which uses up a bit of her energy]]. At least the sacrifice isn't fatal.
* IdiotHair: Though just like Lilli, she's clearly not an idiot.
* IWorkAlone: One of her main preferences.
* {{Kuudere}}: Cold in the outside and prefers being alone. Warm in the inside, especially when Spiritia is involved.
* TheLancer: She's Spiritia's greatest rival and closest friend in RKS.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Pegasus" by Extra Ocean (RKS stage theme), "07" by [=AM3=] (Talk theme), "22" by [=AM3=] (Main/boss theme), "Fate" (RKSF Opening Stage theme), and "Winter Waltz" by Sky God Corridor (Talk theme) (shared with Eifer).
* MoreDakka: Her main weapon, Freudenstachel, is the only one which can't be charged by Spiritia when she acquires it - instead, holding the button will make it rapidfire. It also works similarly in the sequel.
* MysticalWhiteHair
* NonIndicativeName: Freudia is taken from the German word for "joy". She's anything but joyful.
* OlympicSwimmer: Freudia doesn't have the same problem as Spiritia has in swimming capability.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Girl]]: In ''Freudenstachel''.
* OperaGloves
* PowerCopying: A variant in the sequel: she doesn't exactly use the powers of the enemies she fought, but [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer she adapts her ice powers to match them]].
* PowerFloats: She has an ability to levitate in the air.
* RapunzelHair
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Subverted -- Even though she does have red eyes, she's actually a decent person who happens to be duty-bound on this war.
* ReflectingLaser: Her Eislanze.
* ShoutOut: One of her {{Pre Asskicking One Liner}}s was inspired by ''VideoGame/MegaManX4'', which had a similar phrase said by one of the bosses.
-->'''Freudia''': "I'll lay you to rest in a cool bed of ice."
** She repeats it again in ''Freudenstachel'', with a variation.[[spoiler:.. Just before facing Iris for the last time.]]
-->'''Freudia''': "I'll lay you to rest in a cool bed of ice... For all of eternity."
** Also, her swimming animation looks like that of [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]].
* SwordBeam: Her Eisschwert creates these. [[InstantIceJustAddCold Which freeze opponents into blocks of ice upon contact with them]].
* TurnsRed: Subverted. She's the only boss that ''doesn't'' do this. Despite having a flash and a battle quote when her life is cut in half in both of her fights--indicating that she has just done this -- her pattern remains exactly the same as before.
* WarmUpBoss: In the Opening Stage of the first game.
* WomanInWhite
* YouMonster: After [[spoiler:laying Zeppelin back to rest again]], she comments to herself that [[spoiler:Iris]] isn't human after all.

[[folder:Zorne Zeppelin]]
-->''"Don't think I'll go easy on you if you get in Father's way!"''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Ayane Suzumura\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette / Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert''

[RKS-003] Drei. A short-tempered, impulsive, and moody young wannabe daddy's girl who's quite a pyromaniac and a terrible cook with cooking skills nothing short of disastrous, and she doesn't even know the meaning of the word "restraint". She looks up to Count Zeppelin a lot for saving her life once, and, despite the absence of blood ties, regards him as her real father. And she takes high pride of it. Not to mention, she also refuses to get along with Iris.

Her ability is called Zornesbombe, which allows her to create bombs that explode in a cross-like fashion and can demolish brick walls.

!!Tropes related with Zorne:
* AlliterativeName: '''Z'''orne '''Z'''eppelin.
* BerserkButton: She'll go berserk on anyone who calls her an "[[{{Baka}} idjot]]", messes with Father, or even "brainwashes" her friend Trau.
* [[TheBigGuy The Big Girl]]: Relative to her position in RKS.
* BigNo: In Kiora's {{Doujinshi}} Zorne's Birthday. See OhCrap below.
* BigShutUp: If already having defeated Trauare, she would tell Tia, "Shut up *shut up* SHUT UP!!" when Spiritia desperately tried to talk her into calming down and listening to her.
* ButtMonkey: In the first game.
* CartoonBomb: Her Zornesbombe.
* CombinationAttack: With Trauare in ''Freudenstachel''.
* CryCute: Gets some tears in her eyes when she's humiliated... in a cute way.
* CuteBruiser
* {{Expy}}: If she isn't a VideoGame/{{Bomberman}} expy, she was at least very heavily inspired by the series.
* FieryRedhead
* GirlishPigtails
* GreenEyedMonster: In the first game, some parts of her pre-boss dialogue suggest that she's violently jealous towards Spiritia because her stepfather liked her for being strong. Zorne wanted to show everybody that she could be the most useful to her adoptive father himself. She blew it, of course.
* HappilyAdopted: By Count Zeppelin.
* HairTriggerTemper
* HeroicBSOD: In Freudenstachel, it's revealed that Zorne had been a "walking puppet" according to Trau during the few months that passed since her adoptive daddy's death, and she tried many times to [[DrivenToSuicide drive herself to suicide]], all attempts which were stopped by Trau herself. It was her eventual anger that she got towards the army of the church that booted her back up again.
* [[IllKillYou I'll Kill You *I'll kill you* I'LL KILL YOU!!]]: One of her quotes when she TurnsRed.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "SHINING MAN" by Maru no IE (RKS stage theme), "Sinner" by Unlimited Hellest (Talk theme), "Eruption Trigger" by Sound Prison (RKSF stage theme)
* LethalChef: According to her profile, she's a ''REALLY'' terrible cook.
* MadBomber: The word "mad" fits her anger in this case.
* MeaningfulName: "Zorn" means "anger" in German.
* MoodWhiplash: She gets bonus points for this as she easily has "Sinner" by Unlimited Hellest as one of the darkest talk themes in the franchise. There's a reason why said talk theme is DarkerAndEdgier than her stage theme in the original game, "SHINING MAN" by Maru no IE, after all.
* NonStandardGameOver: She urges you to "Hurry Up!" for a reason.
* OhCrap: In the hilarious manga {{Doujinshi}} Zorne's Birthday by Kiora, when Trau enters while Zorne is trying on the new dress provided to her by her adoptive dad, she obviously doesn't like the look in her friend's eyes. Cue BigNo from her.
* PersonalityPowers: Read MeaningfulName above to get the idea behind her Zornesbombe.
* PowerFist: She wears an over-sized version of the gauntlet like the one worn by the title character in the ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersia'' remake.
* PrecisionFStrike: She's not above screaming "Damn it!!" when somebody hits her BerserkButton.
* PyroManiac
* RapunzelHair: Would likely, if she didn't wear her hair in ponytails.
* [[RedOniBlueOni Red Oni]]: To Trauare's blue.
* SayMyName: (After defeat) "Oto-samaaaaaaaaa!" ("Fatheeeeerrrrrrrr!")
* ShoutOut: When she TurnsRed, the background will start filling up with gray blocks, and if the entire background is completely filled with these blocks, it's instant death [[VideoGame/{{Bomberman}} for both the player and Zorne]].
** In ''Freudenstachel'', players are also treated to a NonStandardGameOver with an image of Freudia and Zorne losing the game in a draw.
** Her claw-like left hand is inspired by the one used by Bomberman in ''VideoGame/BombermanActZero''.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: In the original Japanese version, her surname is "Sepperin". In the FanTranslation, it was changed to "Zeppelin"; See Count Michael Zeppelin's folder to see why this change is justified.
* TaremeEyes
* TemptingFate: She does this before her boss battle.
-->'''Zorne''': "Tia, Father might like you because you're strong... but I'll show you all that I'm the most useful to him!"\\
'''Zorne''': (after getting bested by Spiritia) "Ugh... does this mean I'm completely useless!?"
** Alternatively:
-->'''Zorne''': "I have faith in Father! And I will NOT lose to you!"\\
'''Zorne''': (After getting bested by Spiritia) "Ugh... Why can't I do anything when it really counts!?"
* ThisIsUnforgivable: In her intro dialogue against Spiritia and Grolla, both times after Trauare has been defeated.
* [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl Tomboy]]: To Trauare's GirlyGirl.
* TookALevelInBadass: She's significantly tougher in ''Freudenstachel'' than in the first game.
* {{Tsundere}}: She's more exceptionally violent than other examples.
* ViolenceIsTheOnlyOption: She doesn't even understand the meaning of "restraint" anyway. Only if she proves to be a ButtMonkey by getting humiliated both physically and emotionally does she tend to listen to reason. Poor thing.
* WallCrawl: With the aid of her PowerFist.
* WarmUpBoss: She's considerably easy compared to the others in the first game.
* WellDoneDaughterGirl: Always look up for her adoptive father's approval.
* [[spoiler:YouKilledMyFather: Iris kills off Count Zeppelin not only because he outlived his usefulness to her, but also to make Zorne suffer knowing she strived and yearned for him to accept her as his biological daughter. In the {{Doujinshi}} ''Tearis'' (a.k.a. ''Rosenkreuzstilette After-Story'') created by Kiora, she vows to eliminate her for murdering him.]]
-->'''Zorne''': [[spoiler:"I... I know what you did to Father... if you think everything will turn out alright if you just suppress her power you're wrong..."]]

[[folder:Trauare Wrede]]
-->''"You're better off forgetting what you can't change. Sorry, but this is the end of the line for you!"''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Yuri Nashimoto\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette / Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert''

[RKS-004] Vier. She's a composed and pragmatic young lady capable of concealing her immature tendencies, making a point of what needs to be done and finishing whatever's asked of her, but carries a disinterested look on her face the whole time. She's even tougher to control than her friend Zorne when she's angry, she's quite vindictive and will stop at nothing to exact revenge once she's angry, so you wouldn't like her when she is so. She loves to swim and will often invite Zorne to join her at a nearby ravine in her spare time. Her friends call her "Trau" for short and she uses the Chaos Spear Leviathan as her weapon of choice.

Her ability is Klageharnisch, which generates miniature tornadoes of water and can launch them in different directions at once.

!!Tropes related with Trauare:
* BattleStrip: She throws away her jacket before fighting the player in the first game.
* BerserkButton: Her BerserkButton will be pressed if her friend Zorne has been defeated. She even combines it with LetsGetDangerous.
* TheBigGirl: Only she's much more composed than her close friend.
* BladeOnAStick: Her Chaos Spear, Leviathan.
* [[RedOniBlueOni Blue Oni]]: To Zorne's red.
* CombinationAttack: With Zorne in ''Freudenstachel''.
* [[SchoolSwimsuit Competitive Swimwear]]
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* DoppelgangerAttack: When she charges after [[TurnsRed Turning Red]], she can produce illusional copies of herself generated from Leviathan that charge seconds after she does so.
* {{Expy}}: Appearance-wise, she's one to [[VideoGame/MegaManZero Fairy Leviathan]], from her hairstyle resembling Leviathan's helmet, to using a spear that's also named after her. In hindsight, she's also one to [[VideoGame/MegaMan9 Splash Woman]].
** Don't let her looks fool you! In the first game, she is actually [[ThatOneBoss Air Man!]]
* [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl Girly Girl]]: To Zorne's {{Tomboy}}.
* HairDecorations: Her seashell hair clip.
* HumansAreBastards: This is what she thought at first when she took part in RKS' rebellion. She eventually changed her mind when Spiritia (and Grolla) bested her.
* LightheartedRematch: Implied.
-->'''Trauare:''' (After she loses) "When this is all over, let's have another match."\\
'''Spiritia:''' "...Sure. If it's a fair fight you want, I'll take you on anytime! "
* {{Leitmotif}}: "28" by [=AM3=] (RKS stage theme), "Inferiority" by Unlimited Hellest (Talk theme), "Frozen Air" by Wingless Seraph (RKSF stage theme).
* LetsGetDangerous: She almost never takes things seriously... unless when her friend Zorne is defeated, causing her BerserkButton to be pressed.
-->'''Trauare:''' "It looks like Zorne was no match for you. I'll have to take this seriously, then."
* MakingASplash
* MeaningfulName: "Trauer" means "sorrow" in German. Downplayed in that she's just mellow and calm.
* MoodWhiplash: In the first game, her talk theme is DarkerAndEdgier than her stage theme.
* PowerFloats: She can levitate in the air a little above the ground in the first game, even if she isn't underwater.
* {{Qipao}}: Wears one in ''Freudenstachel'' under her [[SchoolSwimsuit one-piece swimsuit]].
* ShesGotLegs: In both games, her bare legs out in the open.
* StrawNihilist: She has shades of this.
-->'''Trauare''': (Before the fight) "There's far too much sorrow in this world. No matter how hard you try, you can't change that, Tia."
** When Spritia beats her, however, she changed her views.
-->'''Trauare''': (After she loses) "This world is filled with despair... [[TheAntiNihilist Still, it might be worth it to hang on just a little longer.]] If you can help make our dreams a reality, I'm with you. Tia..."
* SuperNotDrowningSkills
* TsurimeEyes
* UnstoppableRage: When her BerserkButton gets pressed and she [[LetsGetDangerous shows her true competence]].
* WalkingSwimsuitScene: In the first game.
* WorthyOpponent: She deems anyone who beats her fairly as this.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

[[folder:Luste Teuber]]
-->''"Let's play Cops n' Robbers! Tia, you're the bad guy!"''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Hazumi Homura\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette / Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert''

[RKS-005] Fünf. RKS's resident CloudCuckooLander. A [[CuteMonsterGirl cute devil girl]] who's cheerful, simple-minded and optimistic and always lives in the present. She's easygoing and treats everything like a game, and pictures herself as a hero of justice. She's so attached to Tia that she often plays games with her, with her as the "bad guy". She's nonetheless self-centered and loves tomato juice.

Her ability is Lustatem, which is capable of launching pressurized blades of wind through the air in any direction. She can even launch even bigger ones, especially when she TurnsRed.

!!Tropes related with Luste:
* AgeInappropriateDress: A two-piece bikini, elbow gloves, and thigh-highs. Need we say more?
* AprilFoolsDay: Had an entire page dedicated to her in 2013 with ''[=RosenkreuzStilette=] Lustatem''.
* BareYourMidriff: She bares ''everything'' her midsection has to offer.
* BlushSticker
* ChargedAttack: She uses one in ''Freudenstachel''.
* CheerfulChild: Luste is most certainly cheery and upbeat.
* CloudCuckooLander
* CoolShades: In one of the screenies from the ''Freudenstachel'' [[AprilFoolsDay April Fool's site]], she had these alongside her ScarfOfAsskicking. Later, when the game was confirmed to be in development, she was eventually revealed to have a visor to replace those April Fool's shades of hers.
* CuteLittleFangs: Can be seen if you squint hard enough.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[VideoGame/MegaMan2 Metal Man]] combined with a dash of [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Flandre Scarlet and Cirno]]. In ''Freudenstachel'', she fights like [[VideoGame/MegaMan3 Proto Man]] at first and wears shades and a scarf just like him.
* FunPersonified: Luste is easily the fun-loving character of the cast, being an easygoing and optimistic girl who treats everything like a game.
* FieryRedhead: Inverted, as she's laid-back and easygoing rather than short-tempered, hot-blooded and hot-headed.
* {{Fingerless|Gloves}} OperaGloves
* GenkiGirl: She's easily one of the most energetic of the RKS.
* GetBackHereBoss: If you get too close to her, she'll jump to the other side of the stage. Oddly, while this would mean in theory that fighting her with Grolla would become much harder, due to Grolla's dash ability, chasing Luste becomes easier, and if played right, Luste can be trapped into only jumping around the arena, and at the same time allowing Grolla to freely attack her while she's still in midair.
* GreenEyes
* HeroicComedicSociopath: According to her profile, she likes smashing everything in sight due to treating everything as a game despite believing herself to be a hero of justice, which gives her an emphasis on ''CRAZY''.
-->'''Luste''': "Heheheh! Smashing buildings is fun!"
* [[spoiler:[[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoist By Her Own Petard]] and WeaksauceWeakness: Her other weakness is her own weapon, Lustatem. You can try it when you fight Luste Golem in Iris Stage III.]]
* HotterAndSexier: See MsFanservice below.
* IdiotHair: One on each side of her head.
* IdiotHero: ''"Ah! It takes one to know one!"''
* {{Leitmotif}}: "26" by [=AM3=] (RKS stage theme), and "11" by [=AM3=] (RKS talk theme), "Kaede" by Rengoku Teien (RKSF stage theme), "AM Fight No. 1" (RKSF talk theme (previously used as the RKS title theme and one of Tia's leitmotifs).
* MeaningfulName: Her name means "desire" in German. It can also mean a delightful or an energetic nature, which more than describes her personality. It may also derived from that ''other'' {{Lust}}, which might explain why she's so [[{{Stripperiffic}} scantily-clad]].
* MsFanservice: Aside from being a scantily-clad loli, [erka:es]' 2013 April Fools' Day ''[=RosenkreuzStilette=] Lustatem'' shows Luste as [[SheIsAllGrownUp a fully-grown]] Ms. Fanservice, as seen [[ here]]. It makes her name ''all'' the more meaningful.
* PaperThinDisguise: She puts on some CoolShades, a ScarfOfAsskicking, a pair of metal knuckles and an even more {{Stripperiffic}} top and pretends to be the hero of justice [[StealthPun Bluste]] in ''Freudenstachel''. The stage selection screen even showcases her name as '???' and 'Heroe?'. But let's face it, her disguise is a effective as [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars Ratsel Feinschmecker's]].
* PerkyGoth: She wears all black and has bat wings coming out of her shoulder sleeves, yet is the least concerned person in the RKS. [[{{Stripperiffic}} Not that there's much black to her dress anyway....]] She's a TokenMiniMoe as well.
* RazorWind, BlowYouAway: Her Lustatem.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Acquires one of these in ''Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel''.
* ShoutOut: In her GameOver screen for Spiritia, Luste parodies Flandre Scarlet from the cover-art of ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}} 06 ~ the Embodiment of Scarlet Devil''. She also lets Grolla know why she's "The Strongest" if she loses her final life to her.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Nothing more needs to be said here.
* TagalongKid: Alongside with Schwer-Muta and Dolis as team's youngest members.
* TaremeEyes
* TokenMiniMoe
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Tomato juice, of course.
* WasntThatFun: ''"Awww... I can't beat you after all... But that was still fun!"''

[[folder:Grolla Seyfarth]]
-->''"Are you prepared for the trip to Hell?"''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Junca Amaoto\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette / Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert''

[RKS-006] Sechs. Born with the spirit of a warrior, she's calm, collected, and every bit as strict with her colleagues as she is with herself. She's willing to protect them at any cost - but should her BerserkButton be pushed in any way, she'll stop at nothing to exact revenge. A gifted swords(wo)man, she's feared and respected by many, and is the granddaughter of Raimund Seyfarth, better known as the legendary Thanatos. She prefers to let her blade do the talking over sharing her feelings with others and is a subordinate and bodyguard of Sichte. She may not look like it, but she's actually damn proud of her job. She's [[TheHero The Heroine]] of her own side-game, ''Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert''.

Her ability is Grollschwert, which utilizes the power of her weapon, the Demon Sword of the same name. Using it as a conduit, she can unleash her inner power in the form of multidirectional slashes. Grollschwert's blade becomes sharper and gets farther reach the closer its user is to death.

!!Tropes related with Grolla:
* AncestralWeapon, {{BFS}}, and CoolSword: Her Demon Sword Grollschwert, which has been passed down by the Seyfarth clan for generations. It takes a much [[DarkerAndEdgier darker yet more badass appearance]] in ''Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel''.
** [[spoiler:[[EvilWeapon It's also one possessed by the soul of her grandfather, no less]]]].
* AnotherSideAnotherStory: Completing the game will give you the code to play as her in her own special sidestory, ''Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert''.
* [[AntiHero Anti-Heroine]]: One who prefers to let her sword do the talking.
* ArmorIsUseless: She's the only person who wears ''any'' sort of armor and yet she's the GlassCannon.
* {{Badass}}:
** BadassBoast: She gives one (that doubles as a ShoutOut) before fighting the Cross Wall above. And another to Count Zeppelin: ''"Then I shall become a demon slayer and crush you where you stand!"''
** BadassCreed:
-->'''Grolla:''' (After the Opening Stage battle) ''"Master, I am still inexperienced. Before you left us, you told me that the Demon Sword Grollschwert would clear a path for me. Now you are no longer with us... still, I have this sword. As long as I wield it, I shall press onward! I WILL find you, [[spoiler:Iris]]!"''
** BadassNormal: She appears to have less obvious magical abilities but is capable of fighting on par with any of the other Magi in RKS. It really depends on whether her dashes qualify as Super Speed or not. Her sword swings may also qualify for SwordBeam or FullContactMagic.
** [[spoiler:HeartbrokenBadass: After fighting her grandfather, Raimund.]]
** RapunzelHair: She's a badass with hair that can reach her calves.
* BeamSpam: When she TurnsRed, she will let loose her {{Sword Beam}}s in every direction possible.
* BerserkButton: While many things has made her angry, the one thing that sticks the most is that [[spoiler:her grandfather had to be awaken from his peaceful slumber by Count Zeppelin]].
* TheBigGirl: Her strength is a significant asset to RKS.
* BloodKnight: She qualifies because she prefers to fight first and ask questions later.
-->'''Grolla''': "[[PreAssKickingOneLiner ...You plan on running me down? Show me your worst! There is nothing my blade cannot cut!]]"
* BloodyMurder: She naturally gets this when she takes up her granddaddy's Grollschwert in ''Freudenstachel'', even when she already has enough magic to turn the sky and moon blood red in the first game.
* [[ChainmailBikini Breast Plate]]
* BringIt: She does this to the Cross Wall before the boss battle starts.
* CallingYourAttacks: She shouts "Grollschwert!" when you input the code for ''Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert''.
** And while using her [[ChargedAttack Charged Smash]] with half health left.
** And again whenever she uses one of the attacks she gains when she TurnsRed in ''Freudenstachel''.
* CantKillYouStillNeedYou: In her side-story, after the fight against Sichte, she noted that Grolla doesn't fight to her fullest like she's used to, and shows signs of mercy (when [[GetItOverWith Sichte expected Grolla to kill her]]). Her response:
-->'''Grolla''': "Dead, you are useful to no one. I want you to stand by me against [[spoiler:Iris]]."
* TheComicallySerious: Even though she's the kind of girl who's every bit as strict with her colleagues as she is with herself, there are some times that she just can't get out of a funny situation. Like this part, for example:
-->'''Luste''': "Hey, it's Grolla! What're you doing here?"\\
'''Grolla''': "That doesn't matter. Stop what you're doing."\\
'''Luste''': "No way! I wanna play some more!"\\
'''Grolla''': "...Ugh. I hate dealing with idiots."\\
'''Luste''': "[[NoYou Ah! It takes one to know one!]]"\\
'''Grolla''': "[[BerserkButton It seems you could use some discipline...!]]"
** And another example:
-->''(After an awkward scilence)''\\
'''Zeppy''': "Kwui-kwui..."\\
'''Schwer-Muta''': "...Scary."\\
'''Grolla''': ''(As usual, [[TheUnintelligible she makes no sense]].)''
* [[ChargedAttack Charged Smash]]: In ''Grollschwert'', part of the Zero expy gig.
* CriticalStatusBuff: Her attacks become more powerful when her vitality goes below half.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* DarkerAndEdgier: Her stage in ''Freudenstachel''. With several scenes of NightmareFuel, especially the [[RainOfBlood bloody rainstorm]] near the end, her Freudenstachel stage is considered darker than her stage in the original game.
* DarkIsNotEvil: As she gets two stages in the form of a graveyard and a dungeon with bones and blood and even a bloody rainstorm, was taught by a legendary war hero who was brought BackFromTheDead as TheGrimReaper and is her grandfather, and is willing to protect her colleagues at any cost.
* DashAttack: She performs a tackle against players, and a dash blade attack while playing as her.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: [[spoiler:At least she's closer to the truth than Tia]].
* [[spoiler:DemonicPossession: Her grandfather possesses her in ''Freudenstachel''.]]
* DidYouActuallyBelieve: ''"You think I would fall for the same trick twice!?"''
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: [[spoiler:She didn't care if Iris was a god, a human, or even an insect, she was willing to punch her out anyway.]]
* {{Expy}}: Of [[VideoGame/MegaManZero Zero]], right down to the play style. Appearance-wise, she's also one to [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Rider]], complete with [[CurtainsMatchTheWindow purple hair and eyes]], as well as the [[ZettaiRyouiki thigh-highs]], only minus the blindfold and Medusa powers.
* FlatWhat: She delivers this when [[spoiler:Iris]] pulls off a WoundedGazelleGambit on her by pretending she's an innocent girl being threatened when Sichte walks in.
* FragileSpeedster: In Grollschwert mode. Her dashing and wall jumping abilities break the stages in ways Tia never can, but she can't take a hit for her life. May or may not also count as GlassCannon. Ironic, as she's the only character who wears an armor.
* GoodIsNotNice: In the side-game ''Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert'', she'll fight against her own colleagues just to get them out of her way.
** Also, the fact that she would rather fight than listen to reason more than qualifies her for this trope.
* HumiliationConga: She gets a rather embarrassing humiliation courtesy of [[spoiler:Iris' WoundedGazelleGambit]]. Tough break, descendant of Seyfarth!
* {{Invocation}}: Whenever she TurnsRed, she chants "Ōgi kakusei!" ("Hidden awakening!") or "Zetsugi kaigan!" ("Exceed skill enlightenment!")
* LadyOfWar: As beautiful as she is powerful.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Dark Purple Moonlight" by Sky God Corridor (RKS stage theme and RKS Grollschwert title theme), "Dark Purple Moon ~ Dance of the Moon ~Rebirth~" by Sky God Corridor (Talk theme, shared with her grandfather), "Acid Rain" by Sound Prison (RKSF stage theme).
* LeotardOfPower
* MagicKnight
* MeaningfulName: "Groll" means "grudge" or "ill will" in German. Appropriately she's always in a bad mood and she also easily hold grudge towards anything that angered her.
* [[SirSwearsalot Miss Swears-a-Lot]]: She in ''Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert'' is, surprisingly, quite fond of profanity, despite her speech being on a feudal tongue.
-->'''Grolla''': (To [[spoiler:Iris]]) "...[[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch You bitch]]."
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: One of her victory quotes in Freudenstachel has her panting and saying "What... did I do...?"
* OneHandedZweihander: She's powerful enough to carry her Grollschwert with just one hand.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Girl]]: In ''Grollschwert''.
* PerpetualFrowner
* PrecisionFStrike: She has quite a habit of saying rather obscene words at certain times (see [[SirSwearsalot Miss Swears-a-Lot]] above).
* PrepareToDie: Her quote in her profile. ''"[[MemeticMutation Traitorous dog! Your life ends here!]]"''
* PurpleEyes
* PurpleIsPowerful: She's a very competent fighter, feared and respected by many, plus she has [[CurtainsMatchTheWindow purple eyes and hair]]. Also, her teleportation magic gives off a purple aura, as do her Grollschwert slashes in the first game.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: She delivers this to Count Zeppelin in ''Grollschwert'' because she pities him [[spoiler:for being manipulated by ''his OWN daughter'']].
* RedEyesTakeWarning: She had these in one of the screenshots from the ''Freudenstachel'' April Fool's site. These were absent in the trial versions and the full game.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: She goes on this after [[spoiler:Iris humiliates her with her WoundedGazelleGambit]]. She even combines this with UnstoppableRage.
** The second time: She lays Raimund back to rest. Infuriated and deeply hurt afterwards, she [[ThisIsUnforgivable vows to make Count Zeppelin pay]] for disrupting Raimund's peaceful slumber and nearly kills him. She would've finished him off [[spoiler:if not for Iris interrupting and stealing her kill]].
* SayMyName: (Her defeat in ''Freudenstachel'') "Shishooooooooo!" ("Masteeeeeerrrrrrr!")
* ShootTheDog: Grolla does this twice in ''Grollschwert''. In one instance, she's forced to battle her own superior, Lady Sichte, because Sichte cannot bring herself to join her in stopping [[spoiler:Iris]]. Even after her defeat, Sichte still refuses to abandon her cause but promises that she will no longer stand in her way, asking her to strike her down if that is unacceptable. Downplayed in that Grolla spares her out of belief that [[CantKillYouStillNeedYou killing her would make her useful to no one.]]
** And then after that, her second and saddest ShootTheDog moment is when she's forced to take on the undead form of her own grandfather and mentor, Sir Raimund Seyfarth. To her, being made to slay her grandpa and lay him back to rest again is EasilyForgiven. But, in her words, the fact that Count Zeppelin interrupted his peaceful slumber by bringing him BackFromTheDead... [[ThisIsUnforgivable not so much]].
* ShoutOut: She quotes [[LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai Shiki Ryougi]] when confronting the [[AdvancingBossOfDoom Cross]] [[AdvancingWallOfDoom Wall]].
* SilenceYouFool: She says this when Tia says that she's not siding with the Empire when she confronts her at the end of her stage in the main game.
** Similarly, when she confronts Count Zeppelin:
-->'''Count Zeppelin''': "...Grolla. Such a rude entrance... How ludicrously fitting for a traitor."\\
'''Grolla''': "Silence, demon! Know that the price for toying with the souls of the dead is high!"
* SmugSuper: When fighting the Cross Wall, she tells it to show her its worst as she says there's nothing her blade can't cut, and when Tia uses up her last life against her as a boss, she gets a tendency to mock her failed attempts against her. [[spoiler:And in the final stage of her side-game, she's even willing to rip Iris apart just the same no matter whether she's a god, a human, or even an insect.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: A certain fan of the English RKS community [[ managed to get WOMI]] to spill the beans on this (scroll to the bottom of the April 23rd entry); like Freu, mostly everybody sees the cold and strict woman that she is, but she has a bit of a softer side only known to Sichte and grandfather Raimund.
* TsurimeEyes
* TheStoic
* SwordBeam: The traditional shockwave type that she fires off her Grollschwert, which also becomes a 3-way SpreadShot when she TurnsRed in the first game, and blade beams when she is close to defeat.
* SwordPlant: One of her new moves in ''Freudenstachel''.
* ThisCannotBe: ''"...!? This chilling sensation... it can't be... Am I, a Seyfarth, afraid of a mere child!?"''
* ThisIsUnforgivable: After she killed her resurrected grandfather:
-->'''Grolla''': "Michael Zeppelin... Your reasons mean nothing to me. There will be no mercy. You shall pay for this with your life."
* [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl Tomboy]]: A tomboyish knight, to her [[GirlyGirl mistress]] Sichte.
* UnstoppableRage: She'll stop at nothing to get revenge on anyone who presses her BerserkButton in any way.
* VideoGameDashing: One of her repertoire of abilities.
* ViolenceIsTheOnlyOption: Again, she's not too good with words.
* WallJump: Like Zero, she can jump off of walls and scale them in this fashion.
* WorthyOpponent: Trau would compliment her for being a pretty tough swords(wo)man after being bested by her. If Zorne has already been defeated, she even admits that she's jealous.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]
* YouHaveToBelieveMe: She knows that [[spoiler:Iris is using RKS against the Empire just for fun]]. She tells her colleagues the truth, but they don't believe her. When the convincing fails, she goes into "GoodIsNotNice" mode and beats them up just to get them out of her way.
-->'''Grolla''': "I have stated my reasons. I will not repeat myself."\\
'''Freudia''': "At the moment, you cannot be trusted."\\
'''Grolla''': "And yet the truth remains unchanged..."\\
'''Freudia''': "We might as well cease this debate. Words shall get us nowhere."\\
'''Grolla''': "My thoughts from the very beginning. If my words cannot persuade you, perhaps my blade can sway you instead!"
* YouMonster: She calls Count Zeppelin a demon or a devil (both of which come close to monster) because he meddled with the dark arts to disrupt her grandfather's peaceful slumber.
-->'''Grolla''': "Any last words, Devil?"
* YoureInsane: After [[spoiler:Iris murders a priest for the lulz]], we got this exchange:
-->'''Grolla''': "What was that...!? [[spoiler:Iris]], what is the meaning of this!?"\\
[[spoiler:Iris]]: "...! How careless of me. I wasn't expecting an audience so soon."\\
'''Grolla''': "What do you think you're doing!? [[spoiler:Iris]], have you gone mad!?"
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade-A.

[[folder:Sichte Meister]]
-->''"Your future has already been decided. I am merely clearing the way for you."''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Kotori Kisaki\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette / Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert''

[RKS-007] Sieben. The TeamMom of RKS, Sichte is a level-headed and mature decision maker with keen judgement who is the active leader of the RKS Strike Force. She often frets about her troubled childhood since she was born and raised in the slums, thus having trouble with having faith in those older than her. Ruthless in enemy faces, she's kind and caring to others. She's Grolla's close friend and mistress. Also tends to talk about fate and the future.

Her ability is Die Geplante Zukunft, which allows her to speed up, slow down, or even stop time, and unleash magical energy in the form of small green emerald shards.

!!Tropes related with Sichte:
* AmbiguouslyBrown
* BareYourMidriff: In ''Freudenstachel'', due to ClothingDamage to the lower half of her shirt that she somehow got sometime prior to the events of said game.
* BulletTime: Part of her Die Geplante Zukunft's powers.
* DeathFromAbove: One of her attacks when she TurnsRed has her come down with a giant brick block from above after resuming time (which makes it another subtle reference to Dio).
* {{Expy}}: Of [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Dio Brando with a hint of Noriaki Kakyoin]]. She also fights like [[VideoGame/MegaMan2 Flash Man]] in the first game.
* GagBoobs: When Strudel nestles herself into Sichte's cleavage after Freudia defeats her.
* GoodIsNotSoft: Sichte's generally kind and caring, but being the field leader of the rebellion, she's shown to be dense. She also will not forgive traitors.
* [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl Girly Girl]]: To Grolla's {{Tomboy}}.
* ImpossiblyLowNeckline
* KnifeNut: See {{Expy}} example above.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "CRASH MAN" by Extra Ocean (RKS stage theme), "Night Fire" by Unlimited Hellest (Talk theme), and "The Ancient Cry" by Wingless Seraph (RKSF stage theme).
* MeaningfulName: Her full name can loosely mean "master of future sight", fitting with her powers.
* MsFanservice: Moreso in the second game. She has huge breasts while wearing a low-cut tube top in addition to [[BareYourMidriff showing off her midriff]].
* NotSoStoic: She uses this expression when she's worried about Grolla after she retreats when she tries to order her to lower her weapon and not hurt [[spoiler:Iris (despite the WoundedGazelleGambit pulled off by her, which she didn't know about)]], and when she shows sadness when Grolla uses up her last life against her, and again when the two bid farewells to one another after Grolla defeats her.
* ShoutOut: Her stage, powers, and boss fight are all a shout out to Dio Brando form ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''; Even Spiritia's GameOver screen for that stage is drawn in the style of the manga, with Spiritia saying Jotaro's CatchPhrase.
** Her emerald shard attacks are also a shout-out to Noriaki Kakyoin's ''Emerald Splash'' attack from the same series.
** In ''Freudenstachel'', she even does a move akin Dio Brando's infamous "ROAD ROLLER da!!", and the way she speeds up time a reminiscent of Enrico Pucci's Stairway to Heaven.
* TsurimeEyes
* TheStoic: Except during some events where she shows a sad/worried expression.
* TeamMom
* TimeStandsStill: Again, see the {{Expy}} example.
* WillfullyWeak: In ''Freudenstachel''.
* WhoWearsShortShorts
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Dark-Green Hair]]

[[folder:Liebea Palesch]]
-->''"It's... it's all over... everything... Brother, keep me safe...!"''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Eruru Takeda\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette / Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert''

[RKS-008] Acht. A peaceful, compassionate young girl who adores flowers, she's currently under the care of her brother Karl. She's able to manipulate the weather, but avoids using her powers as much as possible because she has trouble controlling them. Being a pacifist, she hates violence and the notion of fighting. She's always willing to do anything for Karl's sake because she loves him THAT much.

Her ability is Liebessturm, which lowers her proximity's atmospheric pressure before unleashing a heavy downpour of rain. It takes time to charge it, but the results can be devastating.

!!Tropes related with Liebea:
* [[spoiler:ActuallyADoombot]]: The first time you fight her in ''Freudenstachel.''
* ApologeticAttacker: She has shades of this.
-->'''Liebea''': "Forgive me, Miss Tia..."
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She's generally a kind, innocent girl, but if you hurt her feelings in any way, she won't stop crying until she beats you down completely, either by rain, wind, or any other kind of weather manipulation.
* BigBrotherWorship: Holds her brother Karl in high regard, and she is willing to do anything for his sake.
* BlessedWithSuck: Lampshaded by one of her pre-fight quotes.
* BlowYouAway: Her DesperationAttack will also blow you off the stage if you're not careful.
** And it's turned UpToEleven in her ''Freudenstachel'' incarnation.
* TheChick
* CryCute
* DespairEventHorizon: In the first game, Liebea was over the edge of this trope for a while when Zeppelin told her that the Empire had taken Karl captive and that there was no hope to pray for his safe return. [[spoiler:However, she didn't know that it was Zeppelin himself who had imprisoned Karl, and he had actually lied to her out of fear that she would become an adversary of the organization.]] She gets better, of course.
* DetachedSleeves: Of course.
* EmotionlessGirl: In ''Freudenstachel'', she appears to be this when Freu fights her... [[spoiler:until she defeats her and not only rips off all her clothing, but also sees that the Liebea she fought is a fake!]]
* {{Expy}}: Of [[VideoGame/MegaMan4 Toad Man]], pattern-wise in the first game, and of [[VideoGame/MegaMan3 Magnet Man]] in ''Freudenstachel''.
* GirlInTheTower: In the first game.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "30" by [=AM3=] (RKS stage theme), "dear" by Unlimited Hellest (Talk theme), "Ice Flower" by SHW (RKSF stage theme)
* MeaningfulName: "Liebe" means "love". It reflects her love for her brother.
* PowerIncontinence: When she's upset.
* PowerOfTheStorm: She can manipulate rainstorms and gusts of wind.
* RapunzelHair
* ShoutOut: She sometimes says "[[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters koko desu ka]]" when performing her Liebesstrum in ''Freudenstachel''.
* ShrinkingViolet
** InnocentFlowerGirl: She also loves flowers.
* SmartBomb: Her Liebessturm can hit any enemy on screen.
* TechnicalPacifist: She hates violence but has trouble controlling her powers.
* WhenSheSmiles: Telling from some official artwork as well as some of her ''Freudenstachel'' mugshots, Liebea actually gets happy and even smiling expressions on rare occasions.
* WarmupBoss: See WillfullyWeak below. She's arguably the easiest boss in the first game. Even without Freudenstachel, she still leaves herself wide open when charging her Liebessturm and can even be knocked out of it with a few normal shots, leaving her to attack only with easily dodgeable magic projectiles.
* WillfullyWeak: In the first game. Not so much in ''Fruedenstachel'', [[spoiler: but see ActuallyADoombot above.]]

[[folder:Schwer-Muta Casasola Merkle]]
-->''"The bonds that tie people together... are just an illusion...!"''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Alice Ichitsuki\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette / Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert''

[RKS-009] Neun. Schwer's a reclusive young girl who dislikes interacting with others, having been forced to subside in a barren, bestial environment before being placed in RKS's care. Because of this trauma that burdens her to this day, she's generally suspicious of everyone she meets. She feels that her only friend is her pet squid Zeppy.

Her ability is Geisterwand, which generates a circle of mace/cross-like objects around her, forming a barrier. While it's primarily a defensive ability, it can also be used for offensive purposes.
!!Tropes related with Schwer-Muta:
* AnimalMotifs: Her outfit seems to resemble either a cat or a wolf.
* BarrierWarrior: Her weapon is an OrbitingParticleShield made of small maces or shields.
* {{Catchphrase}} / VerbalTic: Zeppy's "Kwui-kwui", which is pretty much the only thing he ever says.
* CreepyChild: Mostly because of her anti-social nature.
-->'''Schwer-Muta''': "The bonds that tie people together... are just an illusion...!"
* TheEeyore: She's always so depressed plus she often uses a low voice and always a soft voice. Not to mention she's very shy.
** Interesting to note is that she often attacks anyone who comes near out of distrust towards everyone she comes across. In the first game, she attacked like that because everybody missed her birthday. As Tia puts it, "We've all been pretty busy... Everything's been hectic lately."
* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: Her squid sidekick, Zeppy.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[VideoGame/MegaMan2 Wood Man]] or [[VideoGame/MegaMan4 Skull Man]] in the original game, and of Lemmy/Wendy Koopa from VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld in ''Freudenstachel''.
* FreudianExcuse: The reason she attacks others is just out of distrust, due to the fact that she was forced into attempting to survive a barren, bestial environment before being placed under RKS's care, a trauma that burdens her to today. In the first game, she attacked Tia because nobody came to her birthday party.
** DarkAndTroubledPast
* {{Hikikomori}}
* {{Leitmotif}}: "33" by [=AM3=] (RKS stage theme), and "Little Mischief" by Ramine (Talk theme).
* LittleMissSnarker
* MeaningfulName: "Schwermut" means "melancholy" in German, which more than speaks for her personality.
* MisanthropeSupreme
* MoodWhiplash: Opposite of Zorne and Trau. Her talk theme is actually LighterAndSofter than her stage theme.
* NonhumanSidekick: Zeppy the squid.
* OffscreenStartBonus: More like Offscreen Start Requirement in her stage. [[spoiler:You have to go left to enter the stage, because on the right is a death trap where the start would normally be]].
** In ''Freudenstachel'', starting the stage by going ''either'' way will actually take you out of the stage and back to the stage select screen. [[spoiler: You have to continue by falling into a death pit.]]
* PaintingTheMedium: Zeppy spits out ink that covers the screen for a short time.
* PeekABangs
* TheQuietOne: She's pretty silent most of the time. Until Zeppy breaks the silence, that is. Even so, Schwer is still pretty quiet when she speaks.
* ShrinkingViolet: So much that she considers Zeppy to be her only friend. Her official art from ''Freudenstachel'' even has her [[PaintingTheMedium hiding behind the border of the image.]]
* TalkingToHerself: Schwer shares the same seiyuu as Tia's FairyCompanion, Lilli.
* TaremeEyes
* TheUnintelligible: As Grolla would say, "As usual, she makes no sense".
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: She has shades of this; though unlike most examples she isn't actively hostile towards everyone, as she only wanted to be alone.
** It may also be because she feels betrayed and forgotten, since no one came to her birthday party. When Tia wishes her happy birthday, she's ''moved''.

[[folder:Dolis Warmind]]
-->''"[[BerserkButton Hey! Don't call me small!]]"''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Haru Kaburagi\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel / Rosenkreuzstilette Weißsilber''

[RKS-013] Dreizehn. She's the head of the RKS Special Ops division who's a hard worker and hates to lose. She's calm in the heat of battle as well as a formidable warrior, but can also sometimes be careless and make mistakes at crucial times. She's very intelligent but knows very little about the outside world, and can also easily become jealous. She's incredibly strong despite her age and carries a huge shuriken-like boomerang called Fesselspirale around with her all by herself.

Her ability of the same name as her weapon revolves around said weapon itself, which she can gather wind power from the solar objects around her and use it to hurl in a fashion normally impossible.

!!Tropes related with Dolis:
* BareYourMidriff
* BerserkButton: In a similar fashion to Edward Elric of ''Manga/FullMetalAlchemist'', [[TheNapoleon she doesn't take too well to being called small.]]
* BlowYouAway: She gathers wind power from anything around her to use to hurl her Fesselspirale.
* CuteBruiser: Even with wind-manipulation powers, it takes considerable amount of power to wield her weapon properly.
* FuumaShuriken: Her Fesselspirale resembles one.
* GirlishPigtails
* GreenEyedMonster: She easily becomes jealous of things.
* HairAntennae
* HeadphonesEqualIsolation: Inverted, she's actually pretty much close to everyone else in RKS.
** Interestingly, some people refer to her "headphones" as earmuffs.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja: She has a ninja-esque vibe... in a HolyRomanEmpire setting.
** HighlyVisibleNinja
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: She surprisingly views Schirach as her idol and wants to become like her, even if Schirach is no longer a member of RKS.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Illusion Field" by Wingless Seraph (Stage theme), "B10" by RP-MUSIC (Talk theme)
* LittleMissBadass
* RapunzelHair: Possibly more extreme than most other RKS characters - even if her hair is tied in pigtails, it still almost reaches the ground!

-->''"Inevitable, isn't it... here comes!"''

->'''Voiced by''': Souta Higurashi\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette / Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert'' (mentioned)

Liebea's older brother. He's a member of the RKS intelligence division who places Liebea under his care. He saw through [[spoiler:Iris' facade]] and attempted to dispose of her but she arranged for him to be imprisoned because HeKnowsTooMuch, by Count Zeppelin, and the latter lied to Liebea about him being held captive by the Empire. Thankfully, he was freed by Freu when she sorted out all the problems left behind by [[spoiler:Iris]]. He was "planned" to be a playable character in ''Freudenstachel's'' side-game in a ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}''-like fashion according to [erka:es]'s 2011 April Fool's joke.

[[spoiler:He makes a surprise appearance as the boss of Pamela's stage in Rosenkreuzstilette Weißsilber.]]

* BareYourMidriff
* {{Bishounen}}
* [[spoiler:CreepyCoolCrosses:]] As a part of Simon expy gig (below), [[spoiler:he's also depicted with the cross boomerang.]]

[[folder:Raimund Seyfarth]]

-> '''Voiced by:''' Aigon\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette / Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert''

Grolla's deceased grandfather and mentor who died four years prior to the story of the first game. He's the legendary wielder of the Demon Sword Grollschwert and the Devil Scythe Grassense -- there's not a single man who doesn't know his name. He's strict and stubborn and shows an unforgiving nature, and never gives up on his job even if dishonor may befall his title. He's willing to kill anyone he feels like killing but follows a code of honor. Being a BloodKnight, he craves battle alone. He was brought BackFromTheDead by Count Zeppelin to guard his castle bridge.

!!Tropes related with Raimund:
* BackFromTheDead

* DarkIsNotEvil: He's Grolla's grandfather and mentor, after all, and he's respected as a war hero.
* DemBones

* TheDragon: To Count Zeppelin.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Inverted, as he is not technically evil.
* {{Expy}}: Of Death from ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'', namely from ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaRondoOfBlood Castlevania: Rondo of Blood]]''.

-> '''Voiced by:''' Aigon\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette / Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert''

The [[spoiler:(former)]] commander of RKS and Iris' father. An imperial nobleman, he's an authority on magic research and a powerful Magus. He's looked up to like a father to all the other RKS members, especially his adopted daughter Zorne, who, despite the lack of blood ties, even regards him as her real father for saving her life once. He made a DealWithTheDevil and launched a coup against the Empire to [[spoiler:(supposedly)]] protect Iris and help the Magi build a world just for them, [[spoiler:and was ultimately killed in the end by Iris]].

[[spoiler:In ''Freudenstachel'', he is revived by Iris and brainwashed into believing that Tia was the one who killed him, serving as the first boss of the Iris Palace. He is killed once again by Freudia.]]

!!Tropes related with Count Michael Zeppelin:
* AffablyEvil
* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type]]-[[WellIntentionedExtremist III]].
* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead: He was brought back by Iris, serving as the boss of Iris Stage I in ''Freudenstachel''.]]
* [[spoiler:BackgroundBoss: In ''Freudenstachel'',]] his fight takes cues from [[spoiler:both Gamma from ''VideoGame/MegaMan3'' and the second form of Sigma from ''VideoGame/MegaManX1''.]]
* BadassCape
* BadassInANiceSuit
* BigBad: [[spoiler:[[DiscOneFinalBoss At first]].]]
* [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy: In ''Freudensatchel'', by Iris. She brainwashed him into thinking that Tia murdered him and that Iris brought him back through her prayers, as well as becoming an OmnicidalManiac.]]
* DarkIsNotEvil: He made a DealWithTheDevil and therefore became a vampire. Despite that, he cares for his own fellow magi very much, and he did so just to build a world where magi can live in peace and ensure the safety of his daughter Iris, [[spoiler:who he didn't know was just pitting them against the Empire for her enjoyment]].
* DeathFromAbove: In his OneWingedAngel form, he has a good ol' GoombaStomp as one of his attacks. It also [[ShockwaveStomp can shake the ground.]]
** [[spoiler:Taken to literal extremes when he TurnsRed in ''Freudenstachel'' as he will rain down [[OneHitKill instant death]] beams from above.]]
* DubNameChange: He's named Graf Michael Sepperin in the Japanese version ("Graf" being used here means "Count" in German), but in the FanTranslation, his name was corrected to Count Michael Zeppelin. This change was justified as [erka:es] intended [[NamedAfterSomebodyFamous to name him after someone famous]] but the spelling threw it off a bit.
* EvilAlbino: At the first glance at least (the "evil" part, that is).
* EvilSoundsDeep: Again, inverted, as he's not really evil, just a nice guy who made a DealWithTheDevil.
* {{Expy}}: Of Dracula from ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaRondoOfBlood Castlevania: Rondo of Blood]]'' and [[VideoGame/MegaMan2 Heat Man]] in the first game. [[spoiler:In the second, he becomes an expy to [[VideoGame/MegaManX Sigma]] instead, particularly his second form in ''X1''.]]
* FamousLastWords:
** ''Rosenkreuzstilette'': "What are you saying? [[spoiler:Iris]] had been here the whole time..."
** ''Grollschwert'': "Try as you will, descendant of Seyfarth!"
* FatalFlaw: He loved his biological daughter so much [[spoiler:that he trusted her too much to see the monster within her]]...
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: When he's charging as bats and transforming and in his demon form.
* KilledOffForReal: He gets obliterated into a burst of flames [[spoiler:when Iris killed him after his defeat]] in the first game.
** [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead: He returns in Freudenstachel as the first Iris Stage boss! And then he gets killed again courtesy of Freu (or Pamela).]]
* LaserGuidedKarma: [[spoiler:He becomes a Necromancer and controls the dead Raimund Seyfarth as a guardian boss in the first game, before he dies. Then he's summoned by Iris as a guardian boss in the second game. Way to go.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Party of Ghost" by God Melospi (Zeppelin Stage IV theme), "Cathedral2nd" by in the Ruins of Memories (RKS talk theme), "Fighting Eternally" by Unlimited Hellest (Boss theme), "The Linking Blaze" by Sky God Corridor (RKSF talk theme)
* MrExposition: Especially in Spiritia's story, before the boss fight, he gives her (and the player) many infos about the history of the RKS world as well as why they're rebelling in the first place.
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: After [[ Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin]].
* {{Necromancer}}: In making a pact with the devil, he got the ability to use the forbidden arts, allowing him to command monsters and demons, and even allowing him the necrotic ability to raise and control the dead. He even brought Sir Raimund BackFromTheDead as [[TheGrimReaper a Grim Reaper-like wraith]].
* NobleDemon
* OneWingedAngel: His demon form.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: See {{Expy}} above.
** OurDemonsAreDifferent: Same as above.
* PlayingWithFire
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* SecretKeeper: He states that he shared Iris' secret with only the select few he felt he could trust, one among them is Karl. Then, as Iris told him, ([[spoiler:she's lying, of course]]) Karl is in fact a spy for the Empire, thus he gets Karl imprisoned.
* ShockwaveStomp: In his second form, he causes tremors whenever he lands after he jumps, temporarily stunning the player.
* ShoutOut: His entire boss battle is one to the final battle of ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaRondoOfBlood'', and in retrospect, the prologue of ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight Castlevania: Symphony of the Night]]''.
** He also shouts "Grant me power...!" before going OneWingedAngel.
** He also sometimes shouts "I'm the Devil...!" instead before doing so, similarly to Dr. Weil from VideoGame/MegaManZero[[note]](Although he says "Owaranu akumu da...!", whereas Dr. Weil said "Ware ga akuma da!", although the meaning is still similar here)[[/note]]. Unlike Dr. Weil, however, Count Zeppelin himself is not a monster whatsoever.
** Role-wise, he's also one to Dr. Cossack from ''VideoGame/MegaMan4''; Count Zeppelin has a young daughter, like Dr. Cossack, his stage select and castle animations are also similar to his, and the password to the Zeppelin Stages for Story Mode is the exact same password to the final stages of ''Mega Man 4'' given the game uses the same password save system. [[spoiler:Oh, and he's also a DiscOneFinalBoss]].
** Considering that he tries to rebel against the Empire because he thought they're going to persecute him and that he's trying to make an utopia for his kind, his motives are similar to [[VideoGame/MegaManX Sigma]]. [[spoiler:Which makes his appearance in the second game all the more amusing.]]
* TallDarkAndHandsome
* TeamDad: To all of RKS.
* TemptingFate: He does a similar thing to Spiritia before his own boss battle.
-->'''Zeppelin''': "Empty platitudes. If you are so certain of yourself, then show me the true extent of your power!"\\
''(Gets beaten by Spiritia)''\\
'''Zeppelin''': "Gah... I had not expected such an outcome...!"
* UndeathlyPallor
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Subverted. He's got the white hair going but what he did was never done with malicious intent. All he wanted was to make the world better for his daughter Iris. [[spoiler:Too bad his love for Iris blinded him from seeing the monster that she really is.]]

-->'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette / Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert'' (mentioned)

The legendary Magus who dedicated his life to the Magi and helped them each live lives free of fear and persecution. Ultimately, he and his eight disciples took a stand against the Holy Empire and the Orthodox Church in a long and grueling war that ultimately ended with his HeroicSacrifice having the Empire accept the Magi as their subordinates. [[spoiler:A few decades later, he was reincarnated into two separate beings: Iris, with his absolute power and unparalelled brains, and Tia, with his soul as well as his strongest ability: the ability to tap into the strength of others']].

!!Tropes related with Rosenkreuz:
* GuileHero: Implied; He pulled off a Thanatos Gambit to make sure that the Magi can coexist and be accepted by normal people, though the extent of it is not shown.
* HeroicSacrifice: At the end of the war, he offered up his life to have the Empire accept Magi as part of its military. That made them what they are today: Rosenkreuzstilette, the "Blades of the Rose Cross".
* IncorruptiblePurePureness
* InvincibleHero: According to Count Zeppelin, the Church, whom the Empire's reins of power lay within, feared him because he was the most powerful Magus in history.
* LightIsGood
* MessianicArchetype
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: Named after [[ Christian Rosenkreuz]].
* TheObiWan: To the Magi, including eight disciples of his, before his HeroicSacrifice.
* PosthumousCharacter: Many of the infos we got about him came from Count Zeppelin [[spoiler:and Iris]].
* PowerCopying: He's able to tap onto the strength of his close companions. [[spoiler:This power is later inherited by Tia as "the Blade of Rosenkreuz".]]
* [[spoiler:{{Reincarnation}}: Two of them: Iris got his immense magical prowess and the abundance of knowledge he acquired over the course of his life, while Spiritia got his ultimate power: PowerCopying]].
* TeamDad: To Magi in the past.
* TheUnseen

!Schwarzkreuz, the "Black Cross"

[[folder:Pamela Arwig]]
-->''"There's no point in holding back. Come at your full strength!"''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Mamenosuke\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel / Rosenkreuzstilette Weißsilber''

[SK-001] Eins. The captain of the [[FiveBadBand Schwarzkreuz organization]]. Born of nobility, she's a fairly straightforward and sensible girl as a result of her noble upbringing that she got from her secret training as a royal knight. Her existence is best kept secret, so very little is known about her. She never doubts her views of justice and will convict anyone who doesn't share them. Pamela becomes TheHeroine of her own side-game to ''Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel'', ''Rosenkreuzstilette Weißsilber''.

Her ability is Weißsilber, which utilizes her magical sword of the same name as the ability. She can draw a magic circle in the air with it and manipulate the space within it, using many attacks available for her use as a result.

!!Tropes related with Pamela:
* AffablyEvil
* AlasPoorVillain: In ''Freudenstachel'', you can't help but feel sorry for her when [[spoiler:Eifer betrays her with an Eiferstachel attack that brutally pummels her to the point of eventually causing her loss of consciousness]].
* AnotherSideAnotherStory: Pamela is playable in her own side-game for ''Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel'', ''RKS Weißsilber'', similarly to how Grolla became playable in hers in the original game.
* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type]]-[[NobleDemon I]] and [[WellIntentionedExtremist III]], like Count Zeppelin (at least, in the main game). She's a villainess born to nobility who's straightforward and sensible and never doubts her views of justice.
* TheCaptain: To the Schwarzkreuz.
* CoolSword: Her Weißsilber, a magical sword resembling a modern silver katana.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Not only does she not like the idea of being vilified upon learning that she's been branded a traitor by the pope and the rest of the Schwarzkreuz, she doesn't approve of [[spoiler:Count Zeppelin's idea of destroying the old world and creating a new one]]. Oh, and she's also disgusted by [[spoiler:Iris' brainwashing of Tia]].
* EvilRedhead / RedHeadedHero: The former in the main story, and the latter in her side-story - but even then, she spends half the time in her story [[VillainProtagonist kicking the RKS members' asses]] before the twist comes in.
* FieryRedhead: Inverted most of the time, as she has a generally calm and polite demeanor, but do anything to make her angry and this trope becomes played straight. Bonus points for having some fire attacks as well.
* {{Gonk}}: Her Game Over screen is meant to be a ShoutOut to Adol Christin from ''[[VideoGame/{{Ys}} Ys III: Wanderers from Ys]]'', but it only succeeds in making her look ''extremely'' creepy.
* HairDecorations
* IllKillYou: Her profile quote. ''"I've been waiting for this! I will destroy you!"''
* KatanasAreJustBetter: See CoolSword above.
* KnightTemplar
* LadyOfWar: The perky version of Grolla.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Earn the experience value" by Nine Gates (Stage theme), "B55" by RP-MUSIC (Talk theme), "Virgin's Battle in Dark Light" (Weißsilber Options & Replay theme)
* MagicKnight
* [[NobleDemon Noble Demoness]]: While devoting herself to hunting the "witches" as she calls the members of RKS, when she resolves to do something heroic, she always keeps her word. This is especially shown in her side-game [[spoiler:when she frees Tia from Iris' influence by defeating both of them before reuniting Tia with Freu]].
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler:Reuniting Tia with Freu at the end of her side-game after beating up Iris and smashing her palace to rubble? This hints that she might not be so bad after all!]]
* PlayingWithFire: She has quite a few fire attacks up her sleeve, among them dashing while ablaze in the main game as well as causing flames to erupt from her fully-charged attack in her side-game.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[CurtainsMatchTheWindow With matching red hair]].
* ShoutOut: Surprisingly, she might be one to Ky Kiske of ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear''. She and her organization even share the same symbol with him and his Sacred Order of Holy Knights!
** She can also be a ShoutOut to Angela Victoire Bledin from ''VisualNovel/PrincessWaltz'', right down to appearance.
* SuperNotDrowningSkills: She sinks like a brick when in water, just like Spiritia and Grolla.
* SwordBeam: She shoots these from the [[FullContactMagic magic circles created by her Weißsilber]].
* TaremeEyes

-->''"Ashes to ashes. Dust to dust."''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Sou Raika\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel / Rosenkreuzstilette Weißsilber''

[SK-002] Zwei. Possibly the [[CreepyChild creepiest of the Schwarzkreuz bunch]]. She's always wearing heavy clothes due to chronic hypothermia, and despite her age she's actually cool-headed and mature. However, her emotions and mood can violently fluctuate, making her sometimes act out of character. For some unknown reasons, she seems to carry strong emotions towards Freu.

[[spoiler:Later, after the Schwarzkreuz is defeated, Eifer is revealed to be TheMole, working with Iris Zeppelin and having manipulated the Schwarzkreuz all along.]]

Her ability is Eiferstachel, which lets her manipulate the location, density, and hardness of any object around her and use them to attack. She can turn any earthly metal or flora she finds into dangerous weapons in an instant.

!!Tropes related with Eifer:
* BlondesAreEvil
** [[spoiler:MysticalWhiteHair: Later reveals herself to be this in the second Iris stage.]]
* BloodyTears: When Eifer [[spoiler:returns to her normal form after the Dark Devil is defeated,]] her eyes cry tears of blood.

* [[spoiler:TheChessmaster: She, alongside Iris, planned to have the Schwarzkreuz attack the Empire and kidnap Spiritia, all while making them believe the Church was witch-hunting Magi.]]

* CuteAndPsycho: Take a look at her outer appearance. Then look deeper inside her.

* TheDragon: To Pamela. [[spoiler:Later after [[TheStarscream betraying Pamela]], we are shown who her allegiance truly goes to.]]
* [[spoiler:EasilyForgiven: In ''Weißsilber'', Pamela invites her back into the Schwarzkreuz after defeating the Dark Devil.]]
* EmotionlessGirl: She appears to be this, but this is actually subverted, as her emotions actually violently fluctuate, making her sometimes act out of character.
* [[spoiler:EvilGenius: With Iris, she pretty much set in motion the events occurring in ''Freudenstachel''.]]
* EvilIsDeathlyCold: She's on the bad guy side, plus, besides her [[GreenThumb plant manipulation]], she likes choosing cold places as her stages and she has her own variation of Freu's Freudenstachel.
* ExposedToTheElements: Her lower half, that is - the upper half is appropriately dressed for the cold climate of the Opening Stage.
* {{Expy}}: Her design quite resembles Ilyasviel von Einzbern from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. Meanwhile, [[spoiler:her Dark Devil form resembles Shadow Devil from ''VideoGame/MegaManX5''.]]
* [[spoiler:FamousLastWords: "Freu... dia..."]]
* GreenThumb: Subverted in that she actually manipulates density and location of an object. It's just that flora seems to be the more obvious choice for her.
* HellishPupils
* IcyBlueEyes
* IdiotHair: She has one beneath her hat. It's not a sign of idiocy, though. Instead, [[spoiler:it is meant to be a hint of her connection to Freudia.]]
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler:Her betrayal against the Schwarzkreuz, especially when she badly injures Pamela with an Eiferstachel attack.]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: In ''Freudenstachel'', as confirmed by [[WordOfGod WOMI]] in a response to a comment in his diary. However, he didn't shoot down the possibility of her being resurrected in a future installment.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Castle of Eternal Night" by Sky God Corridor (Stage theme), "Winter Waltz" by Sky God Corridor (Talk theme) (shared with Freu)
* [[spoiler:ManipulativeBitch: Manipulated the Schwarzkreuz into launching their own coup against the Empire alongside Iris all along.]]
* [[spoiler:TheMole: She reveals herself to be working with Iris after the Schwarzkreuz is defeated, having manipulated the rest of the Schwarzkreuz all along.]]
** [[spoiler:Interestingly, this is subverted, as she doesn't actually pretend to be a good girl. What she does pretend to be, however, is an ally of the Schwarzkreuz.]]
* NiceHat
* NonIndicativeName: Just like Freudia's above, "Eifer" means "eagerness" in German. She's anything but eager, at least in the first glance.
* ObviouslyEvil: She has DissonantSerenity minus the smile, as well as HellishPupils and [[EvilIsDeathlyCold deathly cold ice powers in addition to her plant manipulation powers]]. [[spoiler:But, unlike most characters who are ObviouslyEvil, [[EasilyForgiven she was shown to be redeemable in Weißsilber.]]]]
* [[spoiler:OneWingedAngel: In Iris's fortress, she turns into the Dark Devil.]]
* [[spoiler:OurHomunculiAreDifferent]]
* RapunzelHair
* ScarfOfAsskicking
* [[spoiler:SmugSnake: She seems to carry shades of this, and even constantly alternates between being this and being a MagnificentBitch. [[OutOfCharacterMoment Her violently fluctuating emotions and mood say it all.]]]]
* [[spoiler:SnowMeansDeath: At least in ''Freudenstachel''.]]
* SpikesOfDoom: Used in her boss battle.
* TheStoic: See DissonantSerenity above.
** NotSoStoic: She tends to have an OutOfCharacterMoment, and this is the logical conclusion.
* TalkingToHerself: She shares the same voice actress with Freu. [[spoiler:There's a reason for this.]]
* ThisCannotBe: Whenever you defeat her in battle.
* [[spoiler:TheTrickster: She fooled the rest of the Schwarzkreuz into thinking that she was their ally.]]
* WarmUpBoss: In the opening stage of ''Freudenstachel''.

-->''"Change the world? [[YoureInsane Words of a madman, I say]]."''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Mimi.\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel / Rosenkreuzstilette Weißsilber''

[SK-003] Drei. A former member of RKS, Schirach is a fairly mysterious woman who was reported missing a few years ago. She loves fighting so much to the point of obsession that she's simply excited to participate in any fight - and she doesn't care whether she wins or loses. Being TheBrute of the Schwarzkreuz, she's incredibly strong and can carry her hammer, Lichtfaust, with ease.

Her ability of the same name as her hammer allows her to carry and swing it around with great speed and strength. Her abilities far outclass the limitations of regular humans.

!!Tropes related with Schirach:
* AffablyEvil: You really have to admit how great of a woman she is to be around, with her words of encouragement and all that, even if she's on the bad guy side. And Dolis really looks up to her as well!
* BadassLongcoat
* BloodKnight
* BoisterousBruiser: Well, she's the Brute of the Schwarzkreuz FiveBadBand, but that doesn't stop her from acting friendly (see AffablyEvil above and [[NobleDemon Noble Demoness]] below).
** Interestingly, this is often subverted, as she doesn't act loud most of the time.
* BoobsOfSteel: Her breasts are just as big as Sichte's, and she's shown to be exceptionally strong compared to most other people.
* BrokenPedestal: Notably averted, as Schirach defecting to the Schwarzkreuz does not stop Dolis's hero worship of her.
* BrownEyes
* TheBrute
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* DishingOutDirt: She doesn't explicitly have the ability to conjure earth, but she can do it with her sheer power.
* DissonantSerenity: Even more than Eifer.
* DropTheHammer: Her big hammer, which she handles easily thanks to her [[SuperStrength Lichtfaust]] ability.
* {{Expy}}: She has some similarities to [[VideoGame/MegaMan1 Guts Man]], due to creating earthquakes when she lands and throwing huge boulders at you. Unlike Guts Man, however, she is ''[[LightningBruiser not]]'' slow and immobile.
* FaceHeelTurn: She was a former RKS member and was reported missing a few years ago. And now she's in the Schwarzkreuz.
* FourEyesZeroSoul
* TheGlassesComeOff: When she goes into action.
* ItAmusedMe: Her reason for fighting. Then again, she doesn't care whether she wins or not.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Wild Road" by Wingless Seraph (Stage theme), "B59" by RP-MUSIC (Talk theme)
* MegatonPunch: Has one hell of a punch. Given the chance, it can knock Freu around ForMassiveDamage.
* [[NobleDemon Noble Demoness]]: She's the type of girl who's more than happy to give her captain some words of encouragement after losing to her.
* PerpetualSmiler
** PsychoticSmirk / SlasherSmile
* ShockwaveStomp: She likes to spam this over and over. When she TurnsRed, she can even send a wave of rocks jutting out from the ground.
* SuperDeformed: Her Game Over screen shows her and Freudia chibi-fied, [[spoiler:with Schirach competely leveling the RKS' castle]].
* SuperStrength: Her Lichtfaust.
* TsurimeEyes
* WorthyOpponent: She deems Freudia as one after she (Schirach) loses to her.
* YoureInsane: Her above quote states that she thinks of changing the world as words of a madman.

'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel / Rosenkreuzstilette Weißsilber''

[SK-004] Vier and [SK-005] Funf. Twin sisters who're always seen together, rarely apart. Lecht, the older of the two, is a very introverted {{Hikikomori}} who dislikes interacting with others but loves to read books. She wears an eyepatch because for some unknown reason she's blind in one eye. Rink, the younger of the two, is lively and outgoing and keeps her sister so foremost in her thoughts that she'll [[UnstoppableRage stop at nothing to remove any threat to Lecht herself]].

Their shared ability is Falschegestalt, which lets them generate a magical shield that reflects special attacks.

!Other Characters

-->''"I got it, Tia! Leave it to me!"''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Alice Ichitsuki\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette / Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert''

Tia's little green FairyCompanion. Lilli's a curious and inquisitive fairy who's interested in learning about humans, Magi, and the outside world. Kind of a mischief maker, she'll also pout whenever things don't go her way. As a great friend to Tia herself, she can always be counted on in times of need.

Finding the Black Forest's Treasure in Trauare's stage allows Tia to use Lilli to attack.

!!Tropes related with Lilli:
* AndThatsTerrible: When she sees [[spoiler:what Iris turns out to be]] after Count Zeppelin's defeat, she feels just as horrified as Tia.
-->'''Lilli''': (about [[spoiler:Iris]]) She's awful!
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: She gives one to Count Zeppelin after listening to his explanation as to why he started the war, which makes both Tia and the Count realize something is off.
-->[[spoiler:"...Let me get this straight: The church wanted Iris dead. You found out about Karl. And that's the whole reason you started this war, right? If that's the case, why was Iris at the Training Hall when all this started?"]]
* BareYourMidriff
* {{Catchphrase}} / VerbalTic: "Hunya!"
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* DoomedHometown: The burned forest in the Opening Stage happens to be the home of the fairies, and that includes hers.
* {{Expy}}: Sprite-wise, she looks like a Cyber-Elf from the ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' series. Functionally, she works like Beat from ''VideoGame/MegaMan5''.
* FairyCompanion: To Spiritia.
* GenkiGirl
* GreenEyedMonster: She's jealous whenever Tia mentions about her close friends, thinking that she's the closest friend Tia ever had.
* GreenEyes

* PlatformingPocketPal: Only available after Tia gets a special item in Trauare's stage.
* PrecisionFStrike: At least once.
-->'''Zorne''': "Tia, I'm taking you down! Right here, right now!!"\\
'''Lilli''': "Whoa. She's pissed..."
* ProperlyParanoid: More like "Properly Angered", but she's shown to be like this when [[spoiler:Iris]] is mentioned. [[spoiler:And then you see what Iris turned out to be...]]
* RapunzelHair
* SayMyName: She does this when Tia loses a life while using her to attack. Also when [[spoiler:Iris]] is going to attack Tia (though [[spoiler:thankfully she was saved]]).

* SnarkyNonHumanSidekick
* SpeaksFluentAnimal

-->''"Are you the kind to have smooth bumps on your head?"''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Haru Kaburagi\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel / Rosenkreuzstilette Weißsilber''

Freu's little blue FairyCompanion. Not having quite fit in with the rest of the forest inhabitants, Strudel's a carefree fairy who knows nothing of hatred. She's the type who lazes about and only sees what pleases her and has no general goal but doesn't show any resentment to what needs to be done. Strangely enough, she also likes rubbing smooth objects.

!!Tropes related with Strudel:
* AnIcePerson
* CheerfulChild
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* {{Expy}}: Functionally, to Rush from ''VideoGame/MegaManClassic''. She ''actually'' creates ice sculptures that look just like him that help Freu in similar manners to Rush himself.

* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: Implied.
* PlatformingPocketPal: Becomes available as a weapon for Freu to use if she finds the Black Forest's other secret treasure in Freudenstachel.

* YouGottaHaveBlueHair
** [[spoiler:MysticalWhiteHair: Revealed to be one just like Eifer, except her hair changed back after the battle.]]

[[folder:Iris Zeppelin]]
-->''"Heheheh. I think all kinds of interesting things are sure to happen."''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Kakeru Hotarubi\\
'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette / Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert''

A young girl placed under the care of RKS. Iris appears to be a kind, innocent, and mature-for-her-age girl who's much loved and trusted by everyone. [[spoiler:However, that's just a facade: underneath her so-called "innocent demeanor" lies an utterly cruel MagnificentBastard who's willing to do everything in her power for her own personal gain]]. She likes to sing as she talks, as evidenced by the eighth note (♪) placed at the end of her sentences. [[spoiler:Everything she does, no matter how cruel or hurtful, is all done strictly ForTheEvulz. She's also a reincarnation of the legendary Magus Rosenkreuz, blessed with absolute power and unparalelled brains, and with that, she seeks to usurp God himself]].

[[spoiler:She's back to her deplorable ways in ''Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel'', where she is revealed to be the one who manipulated the Schwarzkreuz through Eifer Skute, an homunculus she crafted using Freudia's genes as a base. Unlike in the original, however, she finally gets her comeuppance from Freudia, who uses her powers to freeze her and then sends her frozen body to some remote place, just to be sure. Oh, and in Pamela's story, she ''explodes''.]]

Her ability is Blitzstrahl, which lets her unleash electric sphere attacks and even generate bolts of lightning in different directions at once.

!!Tropes related with Iris:
* [[spoiler:AffablyEvil: She never stops behaving like an elegant little girl, even while beating down others. Also seems to alternate between this and...]]
** [[spoiler:FauxAffablyEvil: Didn't think her innocent demeanor was anything but a mask worn to hide her vileness? Think again! Also seems to alternate between this and her genuinely AffablyEvil side above.]]
* [[spoiler:AGodAmI:]] Her defining character trait.
* AmbiguousInnocence: Even as early as the intro cutscene, Spiritia and Lilli noted something wrong about her... [[spoiler:Unfortunately, they were right.]]
* [[spoiler:AndIMustScream: Her final fate at the end of Freudenstachel when Freu encases her in an ice crystal.]]
* [[spoiler:BadassBoast:]] She does this in either storyline, [[spoiler:in both games,]] in different ways.
* [[spoiler:BerserkButton: She doesn't take too well to anyone interfering with her plans.]]
* [[spoiler:BigBadFriend:]] As she's the one who [[spoiler:plotted all of the war.]]
* [[spoiler:BitchInSheepsClothing]]
* [[spoiler:BlondesAreEvil]]
* CheerfulChild[=/=][[spoiler:CreepyChild]]
* [[spoiler:TheChessmaster: Definitely.]]
* [[spoiler:ClassicVillain: Not only does she embody the deadly sins as listed in the SevenDeadlySins section below, she also embodies Ambition (as in her ambition to usurp God) and serves as the EvilCounterpart to Tia's IncorruptiblePurePureness.]]
* [[spoiler:CoolCrown: She gets a tiara on her forehead in the first game's climax.]]
* CryCute: [[spoiler:During her {{Wounded Gazelle Gambit}}s as well as her defeated mugshot when she gets bested by Tia in the final battle]].
* [[spoiler:CuteAndPsycho]]: Oh, yes, definitely. Shows at the end of the first game in both modes, of course. [[spoiler:At first, in both stories, she's definitely cute, but she gets the Psycho part even more when she gets her VillainousBreakdown just before the final battle, as she starts laughing maniacally and very quickly changes her prim and proper attitude to insane motormouthed arrogance. Even so, she still has the cute part, of course.]]
** [[spoiler:CuteIsEvil: Yes, she's an AxCrazy psychopath, but damn is she adorable]].
* [[spoiler:DaddysLittleVillain:]] Inverted in that [[spoiler:she pulled off the "YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness" deal on him and didn't care about his death - but he in her words was certainly entertaining]].
* [[spoiler:DefeatEqualsExplosion: At the end of ''Weißsilber'', she starts exploding after Pamela slashes her with her sword.]]
* [[spoiler:DidYouActuallyBelieve: "Do you honestly believe you're a match for me?"]]
* [[spoiler:EnfantTerrible]]
* [[spoiler:EvilLaugh / NoblewomansLaugh]]
* [[spoiler:EvilPlan: She manipulates the RKS into enacting a coup by telling her father that Karl is a spy of the Empire and that he may have told the Empire Iris' secrets, and things just got worse from there. All for the heck of it.]]
* {{Expy}}: Of Kalinka from ''VideoGame/MegaMan4'', to her father being the Dr. Cossack expy and the DamselInDistress of the first game; [[spoiler:when she reveals her true nature, it turns out she's namely one to Dr. Wily and [[VideoGame/MegaManX8 Lumine]]]].
* [[spoiler:FateWorseThanDeath:]] Depending on how you interpret [[spoiler:the ending of ''Freudenstachel'', either Freu freezes her to death or keeps her trapped in ice as a HumanPopsicle for all of eternity, which definitely qualifies as this.]]
* [[spoiler:FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon: She makes [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Baby Bonnie Hood]] look innocent and sweet by comparison; she looks adorable and kind but it's a facade that hides her cold and ruthless side.]]
* [[spoiler:FinalBoss]]
* [[spoiler:ForTheEvulz: She made RKS fight against the Empire for laughs and even amuses herself with other people's, especially Zorne's and Grolla's, suffering.]]
* [[spoiler:GreenEyedMonster: She becomes this towards Spiritia during her breakdown upon realizing that Tia is Rosenkreuz's other incarnation and that she's going to eliminate her for the right of being the sole ruler of the world.]]
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Seems to be this, with the glimpses of her personality, [[spoiler:until it's revealed later that she's [[BlondesAreEvil the opposite]].]]
* [[spoiler:IntelligenceEqualsIsolation:]] Her case.
* [[ChildrenAreInnocent Iris is Innocent]]: [[spoiler:Not.]]
* [[spoiler:ISurrenderSuckers: Just like good ol' Wily, she grovels upon surrendering to Tia after she loses... and then she activates the self-destruct mechanism of the castle, traying to [[TakingYouWithMe take Tia down with her]]]].
* [[spoiler:KickTheDog:]] She does this quite a lot throughout the first game, such as [[spoiler:killing a priest in the beginning of ''Grollschwert'' just for laughs. Oh, and the "killing your own dad for being no longer useful" blurb.]]
* [[spoiler:KillItWithIce: She ends up on the receiving end of it at the end of ''Freudenstachel'' when an extremely pissed off Freudia decides to freeze her to death.]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: See above. Then again, Mega Man villains aren't known for ''staying'' dead.]]
* [[spoiler:LackOfEmpathy]]
* LargeHam: She just loves to chew the scenery everytime she talks.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Lots, to be exact. [[spoiler:"Power of God, Human Heart" by Unlimited Hellest (RKS main theme), "18" by [=AM3=] (RKS Iris Stage III theme), "Heavy Snake" by Unlimited Hellest (RKS Iris Stage III talk theme), "Pray to Muse For..." by Song! Cat Room: Unkolyn (RKS Iris Stage III boss theme), "The Devil Loves a Fallen Angel" by Unlimited Hellest (RKS Final Stage talk theme), "Last Battle ~Requiem for Myself~" by Song! Cat Room: Unkolyn (RKS Final Boss Battle), "B38" by RP-MUSIC (RKSF main theme), "Mad Darkness" by DEAD END WONDER (RKSF Iris Stage III theme), "B7" by RP-MUSIC (RKSF Iris Stage III talk theme), "the end of last age final destination" by Kamo King (RKSF Iris Stage III boss theme), "Scarlet Moon Castle" by Unlimited Hellest (RKSF Final Stage talk theme (shared with Tia)), "Awakening the Profound Evil" by Wingless Seraph (RKSF Final Boss Battle (also shared with Tia))]]
* [[spoiler:LightIsNotGood]]
* [[spoiler:LoadBearingBoss: After defeating her for the last time, her castle self-destructs.]]
* [[spoiler:ManBehindTheMan]]: Actually, [[spoiler: ''Girl'' Behind The Man]].
* [[spoiler:ManipulativeBastard: She manipulated RKS into launching the coup against the Empire just for kicks. Oh, and she did the same thing in the second game, this time with the SK.]]
* [[spoiler:MeaningfulName: She seems to be named after (and be similarly) to Iris, the rainbow goddess, and Eris, the goddess of chaos. Like the rainbow goddess of the same name (only with a different pronounication), her OneWingedAngel transformation appears to be a beautiful maiden with wings, and like Eris, she delights in causing as much mayhem as possible just for fun, mainly by manipulating others into attacking one another. Iris herself [[AGodAmI claims to be a god]] anyway, so this makes perfect sense.]]
* [[spoiler:OhCrap: She uses this expression when Grolla overhears her plot to have RKS fight against the Empire for kicks in the beginning of ''Grollschwert''. She also uses this expression right before Freudia Kills Her With Ice at the end of ''Freudenstachel''.]]
* [[spoiler:OneWingedAngel: In the final battle, she turns into a seraphic version of herself]].
* [[spoiler:PhysicalGod: She claims to be one.]]
* [[spoiler:PitifulWorms: In addition to her claims to be a PhysicalGod above, she'll never miss an opportunity to call other people "worthless maggots".]]
* [[spoiler:PowerGivesYouWings: In her One-Winged Angel form.]]
* PrincessClassic: She seems to have shades of this. She's very intellectual, [[spoiler:as much as Rosenkreuz himself]], plus in the first game, she's very well-dressed in elegant clothing, similar to that of a real princess. Of course, this is then [[spoiler:inverted, as she's more of an evil and malicious MagnificentBastard than expected]].
* [[spoiler:PsychoElectro: She qualifies even further when she gets her VillainousBreakdown]].
* RapunzelHair
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Subverted... [[spoiler:At first.]]
* [[spoiler:SevenDeadlySins: She pretty much embodies a lot, if not all, of the deadly sins. Here's a list below:]]
** [[spoiler:{{Pride}}: She definitely takes pride of being basically a "god's reincarnation" and sees others as commoners. She also can't accept defeat.]]
** [[spoiler:{{Lust}}: The lust for pleasure and excitement... over other people's misery, that is.]]
** [[spoiler: Envy: She becomes jealous of Tia at the end of the main game upon learning that she's the other incarnation of Rosenkreuz and that "the world needs only one Rosenkreuz".]]
** [[spoiler:{{Greed}}: This is linked to her Ambition. She will not let anyone else standing in the way to godhood, manipulating them all to ensure that.]]
* ShockAndAwe: Her Blitzstrahl ability.
* ShoutOut: One of her quotes, [[spoiler:"Oh, I'm so anxious to rip you apart!", is one to Double from ''Mega Man X4'' (fittingly, both him and Iris are shown to be a well-mannered people in the good guys' side before being revealed as evil and sadistic)]].
** [[spoiler:And one to Vile from ''Mega Man X'' when she witnesses Spiritia wrecking her floating fortress.]]
** Another, [[spoiler:"Grovel in the dirt like an insect, and the insect I know you are", is one to Dracula's victory quote from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaJudgment'']].
* [[spoiler:SmugSuper: She believes herself to be incomparable to everyone else since she claims to be a god, and always boasts about it.]]
* [[spoiler:SoftSpokenSadist]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Again, see Count Zeppelin's folder for details.
* [[spoiler:TeleportSpam: against her capsule and then against her seraphic form]].
* [[spoiler:ThisCannotBe: She says many variations of this whenever she is defeated.]]
* [[spoiler:ThisIsTheFinalBattle: ''"I would kill you here and now, but I have a better idea. I'll let you prepare yourselves for a final showdown. You had better get ready!"]]''
* [[spoiler:TheTrickster: Her innocent demeanor fooled everyone into not knowing that she started the war for her entertainment]].
* [[spoiler:{{Troll}}: In ''Grollschwert'', she's clearly amusing herself with pissing off Grolla as much as possible, and as Grolla continues her quest to get her revenge, Iris conjures up more ways to piss her off again -- just to have fun at her expense.]]
** [[spoiler:And in Freudenstachel, she manages to do it again, this time with Freu; she uses a brainwashed Tia to attack her just to have even more fun at Freu's own expense (see Freu's BerserkButton above). And what better punishment for her being a Troll than being sealed in ice after the battle...]]
* VerbalTic: The eighth note (♪) is often placed at the end of a lot of her sentences.
* [[spoiler:VillainOpeningScene:]] She gets this in Grolla's side story.
* [[spoiler:VillainousBreakdown:]] She gets this on both stories, one each. One when [[spoiler:she laughs madly as she realized that Tia is the other half of Rosenkreuz's reincarnation]], another when [[spoiler:Grolla said that she doesn't care who the heck she is and she wants to kill her]].
* [[spoiler:VillainsWantMercy: Subverted - see ISurrenderSuckers above.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: And for many, MANY good reasons.
* [[spoiler:WaveMotionGun: Her new flying fortress in ''Freudenstachel'' gets one.]]
* WasntThatFun: [[spoiler:For when you use up your last life against her during the second phase of the fight against her Iris Machine]].
-->'''Iris''': "Now THAT was fun!♪"
** Alternatively:
-->'''Iris''': "Now THAT was quality entertainment.♪"
* [[spoiler:WingedHumanoid: Again, her OneWingedAngel form]].
* [[spoiler:WoundedGazelleGambit: She pulls this on Grolla in Grollschwert mode and pretty much ''everyone'' in the main game.]]
* [[spoiler:YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: She pulls this on her father after the battle with him.]] She would have done the same to [[spoiler:Spiritia if not for a BigDamnHeroes moment from Freudia]].

-->'''Introduced in''': ''Rosenkreuzstilette / Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert''

A dragon who appears in the beginning of the game to kidnap Iris. [[spoiler:In truth he was actually enslaved by her until Tia (and Grolla) freed him by shattering the red orb. He gladly returns the favor by taking them to her and saving Tia when Iris self-destructs her palace]].

!!Tropes related with Talos:
* [[spoiler:AndroclesLion: In return for being freed from slavery, he helps Spiritia/Grolla cross the chasm to Iris's chamber and rescues the former upon the destruction of Iris's fortress.]]
* CaptainErsatz: Resembles Wyverns from ''Castlevania'' games, sprite-wise.
* [[spoiler:GentleGiant]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[spoiler:"ys008 ~The Final Duel~" by Oo39 Dot Com (RKS Final Stage theme)]]
* [[NiceGuy Nice Dragon]]: According to Spiritia, from what Freudia said to her, dragons are kind, gentle creatures. [[spoiler:Talos is no exception, he was just slaving away at Iris' whelms, and he wasn't enjoying it.]]
* OurDragonsAreDifferent
