    The Students of Class E 

The Class as a Whole

Scouts

Alexia Korzani

Carina Hobbes

Carmilla Tepes II

Carol

Ethan Herrick

Kevin Angelou

  • Awesomeness by Analysis: He is extremely analytical of people around him, able to see minute movements, facial gestures, and expressions to basically tell whatever a person may be feeling at that moment. Inadvertantly concentrates so much, he'll sometimes end up actually staring at someone for an extended period of time. Often ponders if this ability is a gift or a socially-awkward curse.
  • Badass Bookworm
  • Big Brother Instinct: Shown most obviously at its best in the asides, where Kevin spends time with is younger sister Melony.
  • Cultured Warrior
  • Knight in Shining Armor: He's an anachronistic example, one whom Carmilla takes great interest in describing as such. He likes to be very chivalrous towards women, and is usually well-mannered. He actually likes reading books on Chivalric Romance to boot, which is actually one of the reasons why he acts this way.
    • Played into a lot more during the Asides. He really influenced his sister to see him as a more literal version of this trope.
  • Nice Hat: Several. His standard hat is a cap described as resembling a German M43 field cap.
  • Officer and a Gentleman: One of his main goals at Lanseal is to strive to achieve this.
  • Only Sane Man: Was once described as such, though he doesn't like to see himself as the only one, and he doesn't like to acknowledge it.
    "Let's just say that some of the more...stable personalities seem to be to softspoken, and the more eccentric people become the voice of the class. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but you can tell where some... complications occasionally arise because of this."
  • Parental Abandonment: His parents died when he and his family were young, and his older sister ended up being promoted to parent.
  • Perma Stubble

Mist Almark

Scarlett O'Hara

Sothourn Sar

  • Blind Without 'Em: Played with—he's not completely useless, but his accuracy is definitely hampered at long ranges unless he puts on the glasses he keeps in his Buddha case.
  • But Not Too Foreign: Half-Nipponese.
  • Everything's Better with Samurai: He may be no stranger to modern Gallian culture, but regardless he still carries around a katana and tanto, and possesses a set of ceremonial armor for uses during formal occasions.
  • Friendly Sniper: So far he technically just a marksman, but he aspires to be an anti-tank sniper.

Zyorich del Stavern

Shocktroopers

Adrian Daimell

Alamo Ranchero Long-Acre Baker III

Isabelle Moreau

Kelda Ocktavia Steiner

  • Big Eater—Just as much as Isabelle and James London. Every meal, she needs to stuff down at least FOUR PLATES to be sated. However, rather than stuffing it all down in one go, she savors the taste of every bite.
  • Blue Blood: Heir to one of the Seven Grand Imperial Houses, the bluest blood in The Empire not royal.
  • Bitch With A Heart Of Gold—Make no mistake, Kelda is a person who will anger at least half the people she speaks to, but she truly has kindness within her and is all too willing to express that... Often alongside her arrogance.
  • Boobs of Steel—Among the bustiest characters in the class, and one of the most physically-inclined as well. She actually accidentally crushed Sar's hand out of stress. Then she accompanied him to the infirmary after that occurred.
  • Character Tics: Tossing her hair.
  • Custom Uniform: Downplayed. She often wears longer skirts than the norm.
  • Jabba Table Manners: Defied. Kelda considers wasteful actions by those of class an utter insult to their title.
  • Lady of War: Has the elegance and poise down to be sure... Most of the time.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: Bordering on a Verbal Tic.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Though impractical in real life, Kelda has the waist-length hair often associated with canon Ladies Of War Selvaria and Juliana.
  • She's Got Legs: Second only to her chest is her thighs.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Stands at Six foot four, towering above all the cast save Professor London himself.
  • Supreme Chef: Courtesy of her mother's amazing cooking skills being passed down to her.

Marigold "Maggie" Silverberg

  • Blue Blood: Of the Silverberg family,
  • Fangirl: Of Archduchess Cordelia, though there's some definite genuine loyalty to her, as her entire family has been devoted to House Randgriz.
  • Fantastic Racism: Against non-Gallians. However, she was so impressed by Cordelia's bravery in unveiling her race, she dyed the tips of her hair blue in honor of the fact.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: When it comes to those whose loyalty to Gallia proper she can't be sure of, she can get rather easily set off.
  • My Country, Right or Wrong: Her current stance on everything is: Rebels need to die, and Imperials and Federals need to stay the hell out of Gallia's business.
  • Sociopathic Soldier: Showed elements of a Type 1 early on, but after witnessing Gustava's display of this trope, she's attempting to hold herself backfrom jumping over the edge. So far, it's working, though she couldn't resist making a joke about a Rebel whose fingers London broke.

Maxine Barzini Broadway

  • Anti-Hero: Type V
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She acts civil and can be polite, though it will almost always be a facade to mask an easily angered, vindictive woman who can and will hold a grudge if someone slights her in any way.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette
  • The Mafia: Comes from an expy of this sort, and she's looking to get into the "family business" by training her combat skills in Lanseal. Not to mention her rather Italian-sounding name.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Mostly out of necessity to interact with people. See above.
  • Pyro Maniac: Her preferred weapon is labeled as "Anything that lights a fire."
  • Token Evil Teammate
  • Wretched Hive: Her home country, Valua, in a nutshell.

Miri

Nathan Robinson
  • Berserk Button: Physical abuse. Especially if it's absolutely pointless.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Played with greatly. He's lazy about things he's not interested in, brilliant about things he is, and is doubly brilliant when working in a team, because it means he can keep the spotlight off himself.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Of a mental sort. Nary a post goes by without the narration making a comment of his often derisive thoughts on everything around him.

Soselo

Zach Grant

  • Captain Ersatz: Of Rambo appearance wise.
  • Knife Nut: Zach carries a foot long bowie knife with him
  • More Dakka
  • Retool: Of Zach Seitz in the previous continuity. Same look and general personality but with a different backstory.
  • You Killed My Father: His reason for bigotry against the Yggist Faith.

Lancers

Ashley Buckley

  • Brilliant, but Lazy: A university student who dropped out of the University of Fouzen due to outside activities.
  • Fangirl: Was amazed to see a Cowboy in Alamo, and a Ninja/Samurai in Sar. She did mention she watches a lot of movies, too.
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl
  • The Stoner

Dahlia Winterson

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys
  • Ascended Fangirl: She was inspired by the bravery of Squad 7 in rescuing her hometown, Vasel, that she wanted become a hero herself when the civil war started and help others like they helped her. She became a Lancer in particular due to a certain vegetable-loving hero.
  • Boyish Short Hair
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: She was quite lazy in civilian life. But after being inspired by Squad 7, and possessing no spectacular physical attributes or prowess to get herself scouted, Dahlia worked incredibly hard and applied manually for admission to Lanseal, before finally getting accepted. She plans on living campus life back in her usual laid back manner though...
  • Dissonant Serenity: She displays an unusually calm head in the midst of battle, and she's fully aware of how dangerous the situations can be... but none of it phases her or her perpetually calm and cheery expression on her face. She even tries to keep up polite conversation with her colleagues in the middle of a skirmish!
  • Politeness Judo: Deconstructed. Dahlia does believe that using politeness and niceties will get you far in situations, though her constant and sometimes enforced use of it often unintentionally masks her true opinions and moods regarding day-to-day issues, as well as giving people assumptions about what kind of person she is. And Dahlia HATES assumptions.
  • Spirited Young Lady: Dahlia claims to want to defy the image of the proper lady and simply be herself.
  • Sweater Girl: Her fashions tend to walk in this direction. Morgan certainly saw the appeal...

Eclaire Morgan(New Continuity Version)

Hilvane Aulquinn

  • Asskicking Equals Authority: His idea of a competent leader - someone that can actually LEAD.
  • The Berserker: His tactics in combat are very aggressive and proactive. He himself can shrug off or ignore pain from some wounds.
    • Tranquil Fury: However, he's absolutely silent when this happens, and next to impossible to command.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy:Thinks himself as such, and at least has the lazy part down.
  • Challenging the Chief: Due to believing most officers are incompetent due to the actions of General Damon during the invasion. Does it through refusal of orders or taunting rather than violence.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Fought as a member of the militia when the Empire invaded Gallia two years prior, and lost his hometown, parents, and friends to it.
  • Delinquent: Comes off as this when not in combat. Only to people he doesn't know or people he knows are incompetent though.

Engineers

Amelia Maldonado

Curtis Meyer

Erlina Alexander

  • Combat Medic
  • Dragged by the Collar: An instigator of this for males everywhere, Miles, Kevin, and Larry in particular.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse
  • Gossipy Hen: She lacks a flock of fellow gossipers, so she mostly just goes around throwing what she hears in everyone else's ears. But god help if she hears or sees anything that could imply the slightest bit of a relationship... even if it makes no sense to anyone but her.
  • The Matchmaker: Her views are summed up quite nicely in her own words:
    "Well... to me, there's nothing more interesting than watching peoples' relationships grow... I mean, I've kinda grown up watching movies and reading little optimistic fairy tales, some of them deal with romance... a world, made for two... I want to see more of that! I want to toy with one with my own hands! Erm... not to say that you're being toyed with, but..."
  • Missing Mom
  • One of the Boys
  • Running Gag: She often mixes up "deaf" and "blind."
  • Unkempt Beauty
  • Tell Me About My Mother: Erlina often wonders about her.
  • The Drifter: Was one for about a year in her backstory.
  • The Tease

Katarina Sterling(New Continuity Anthemer version)

Larry Eiling

  • Badass Bookworm: Always has a book-holder at his side. It holds a technical manual of some kind or another.
  • The Charmer: He was a bit unsuccessful with Erlina, though he notes that he has a history of being very successful with the ladies. Subverted however, when he lets his projects and engineering experiments often get in the way of potential dates, leaving the ladies quite displeased.
  • Dual Wielding: Secretly wants to do this with his Engineer pistols.
  • The Engineer: He's essentially Miles with social skills in this respect.
  • Large Ham: When playing to an audience for laughs, like how he acted as the fake noble Huffy von Huffington.

Miles Maldonado

Armor Techs

Adelaide Von Dem Sudkusteritter

Arngrim di Lanza
  • All of the Other Reindeer: The reason for the racism below. As a child, he was adopted by a noble family and saved from starving to death on the streets. When he started going to school, however, the nobles started to give him crap for his race. When he tried to seek shelter with other Darcsens, they didn't treat him any better, thinking he'd bring any and all kinds of trouble to them with his adoptive lineage. So now he hates Darcsens and refuses to consider himself one, while not thinking too highly of most other people, particularly if he believes they wronged him.
  • Badass Family: Most of the nobles in the RP have this trope in effect, but the di Lanzas exemplify it by specifically making their claims to fame in battle over politics and other things.
  • Blood Knight: From a whole family of 'em at that. He thoroughly enjoys fighting, though not war.
  • Fantastic Racism: Against other Darcsens.
  • Happily Adopted: Like you wouldn't believe. He loves his mother very much.
  • Momma's Boy: As a result of the above, he does anything and everything to make his mother Gunnr smile. And he's very fearful of disappointing her as well.
  • You Are What You Hate: He is a Darcsen, but he refuses to count himself among their number and treats the grand majority of them with disdain since they did much the same to him in the past.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: A Darcsen trait. But if his mother didn't tell him she liked it blue, he would've dyed it red to match hers by now.

Gail Cuthbert

Morgan Malvin

Richard Charleston Malvin

  • Big Brother Instinct: For all his nervousness and lack of assertion, he's committed to keeping his sister safe.
  • Blue Blood
  • Butt Monkey: Establishing character moment has him get dragged off by London for starting a fight at the Yggmas Ball. He gets scared senseless(though started on his road of character development) by the guy. Later, he asks Carol to a dance. Gulliver bites him on the leg and interrupts it. In January, he joins the class proper and is scared once again by Maggie's untrusting eyes toward him. Then he realizes he might be attracted to Carol during lunch that day and realizes he might cause a lot of trouble for them both if he acts on it. He ends up holding her hand for a few seconds anyway. During the skirmish on the artillery battery, he gets shoved by Ethan to give him a clear target. Then he witnesses Gustava's bloody killing and gets scared again, losing his lunch. When the skirmish is over, he's thinking of his kills back at camp and gets berated by Ethan(and shoved again) for forgetting to hand Morgan the dog tags of her first kill. He's going strong, but nothing is going exctly right.
  • Cool Sword: His Malvin longsword.
  • Cowardly Lion: Despite the expectations of his family, he's found he's much less appreciative of fighting in war than his sister. This is not to say he's not skilled at it, though.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Played with—he and Morgan switch these roles constantly.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Morgan's Red. He's the more cautious and worried one in the face of her passion.

Zamuel

     Combatant Personnel working with Class E 

Elysse Moore

James London

Michelle Nichole Maldonado

     Personnel of Lanseal 

Dr. Illianara

Dr. Nigel Keegan

Dr. William Alexander

  • Turn Out Like Her Mother: Alexander is very wary of Erlina doing this, and whenever she attempts to follow in the footsteps of the mother she never knew, he sometimes gets extremely strict and possibly abusive towards her.
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He wants his daughter to become a successful physician like himself, just to avert the lawlessness her mother embraced. Erlina grew up wanting be a freeloader. As such, Alexander often found himself trying to take extreme measures to shape her up.

     Antagonists 

Gallian Revolutionary Army and Affiliates

Astridr von Adelbrecht, Ace: Special Tech

Ceony "Capra" Bernal, Ace: AT Sniper

Charles "The Raven" Insalaum, Ace: Heavy Gunner

Doug "The Dude" Dupont, Ace: Sniper

Ethelhard von Adelbrecht, Commander: Commando
  • Anti-Villain: Type IV.
  • Born in the Wrong Century: Shares the exact same opinion as his sister Astridr on the matter of House Randgriz' true descendance.
  • Catch Phrase: "For the preservation of our glorious Principality."
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Minor version—He wonders why GRA Command won't allow him to inspect the V2s, as he considers them amazing Powered Armor. The truth is a bitrisky to reveal.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Created the Balder armor he and his sister wear, as well as a custom battle tank for his forces, and a tank destroyer with a railgun.
  • Immune to Bullets: Thanks to his own amazing invention.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: His sister is the passionate voice of morale. He is the calmer voice of reason and strategy.
  • Sibling Team: With Astridr.
  • Static Stun Gun: Created the ones used in tandem with the Balder Armor.
  • Token Good Teammate: Just like his sister.
  • What Were You Thinking?: The reason for he and his sister's defection once more—If it weren't done in such haste and at this point in time, particularly taking into account the reconstruction that Gallia would've required, Cordelia's grand revelation to her country and the world would've been a good thing—but she chose to do it right then, and that was the last straw for the Adelbrechts, who joined the Revolution.

Hilda Avis, Commander: Tanker, Engineer (Dismounted)

Liam Walsh, Ace: Sniper

Michael Gouveia, Ace: Shocktrooper
  • A Father to His Men: With "Father" being his actual title, as a priest. Michael actually prefers acting as chaplain to the GRA troops who seek religious advice and counsel, compared to the more dirtying sort of work that comes as a soldier.
  • Affably Evil: Where not concerning Darcsens. He's known to have a very priestly-demeanor, even in the face of those who are very unpleasant.
  • Badass Preacher
  • Beard of Evil
  • Church Militant: A combatant Yggdist priest, the best example in either canon or fanon to date.
  • Fantastic Racism: Against Darcsens, naturally.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: Ever since humanity inbred with the Valkyrur after saving them from Darcsens, a majority of them (in Michael's point of view, anyway) simply indulged themselves in vice, sin, and war for the rest of time, slowly killing themselves. Their level of sin does not place them much higher than Darcsens, and by this time Michael sees himself living in a Crapsack World. On the day prophesied that the Valkyrur return, Michael questions whether or not the world as it sits is worth saving.
  • Parental Abandonment: His mother was actually murdered while he was just a boy, and Michael's father blamed a group of Darcsens for the deed. After exacting vengeance on the would-be murderers, the father was arrested for killing them with no proof whatsoever, and an investigation pressed charges for the mother's murder on the father, eventually seeing to his execution. This sort of upbringing played a large influence to where Michael is today.
  • Sinister Minister: Doesn't actually play up the sinister part, but he's definitely a preacher and his goals are less than agreeable to all parties.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: At the least he sees himself as this—he wants nothing more than a world as free of sin as it can possibly be. But the Darcsens are completely unforgivable and most of humanity doesn't rate much higher on his list.

Olivia Marie Lupo, Ace: Scout

Raphael Gagnon, Ace: Heavy Scout
  • Anti-Villain: Type I.
  • Aristocrats Are Evil
  • Badass Longcoat
  • Cool Sword: His family's Flamberge sword.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Not the best example of this, but believes genocide is not the solution to ensure the success of the GRA's goals. In spite of his sexist tendencies, he also can't stand having to see a woman die on him.
  • Fantastic Racism: Played with—He believes Darcsens are worth saving—but only Europans are capable of saving them.
  • Freudian Excuse: His sexism existed before he became a soldier, but that was simply his familial upbringing, and it was relatively minor back then. And after being in the Regular Army for so long, the way men treated women there wasn't any better. The transition to becoming a member of the militia, with presumably half of the personnel being women, was unnatural and uncomfortable for Raphael. Eventually, during the course of the Second Europan War, he was very horrified at seeing so many women dying, that his gentleman's honor swore him to try and prevent such atrocities from happening on his watch. Unfortunately, over the years he's grown a bit more sarcastic and cynical and while his gentleman's honor stays persistent, he does show some shades of traditional sexism.
  • Maligned Mixed Marriage: His Darcsen wife, Beatrix. Due to a majority of the GRA being racist and genocidal, he mostly hides her, keeps her race under wraps, or keeps her in the presence of trustworthy people. Even in the event people may find out, Raphael's connections in the GRA and status as a prominent officer would have him immediately threaten and deal with anyone that would even think of touching her.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Toward his Darcsen wife, Beatrix. The manipulation mostly stems from his fantastic racist beliefs, and how she won't get by in life without him. Interestingly, there was no manipulation involved in Beatrix falling for the man in the first place.
  • Officer and a Gentleman: Varies. He holds himself to a gentlemanly code of honor aristocrats would need to uphold, and he certainly sees himself as this trope, though his sexist tendencies often get in the way of this. This being a war-setting, and many women are fighting in the military, he can often seem like more of a dick than he actually is.
  • Stay in the Kitchen: His opinion of women who fight on the battlefield. Though not strictly in the kitchen as somewhere far less risky to their own well-being, as he does see them fulfilling vital societal roles, such as mothering future generations.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: He was renowned as a war-hero during the first and second Europan Wars, and his position as an officer and recruiter for the GRA is built around this. His much more toned down views on Darcsens compared to the rest of the GRA also had him try to recruit like-minded individuals such as those who are otherwise neutral, or even loyalist in the war, giving people an impression he's a much more sympathetic man than most other members of the rebellion.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: His attempts to try and help Darcsens (granted, he sees it as the White Man's Burden), as well as trying to make his GRA colleagues less extreme and genocidal in their activities.

Roger Malvin, Commander: Tanker, Fencer (Dismounted)

     Old Continuity Characters or Drop-Outs 

Adam Wade

Alicane Hunter, Shocktrooper

  • Freudian Excuse: His family were killed by Imperials.
  • Heroes Want Redheads
  • Jerkass: This demeanor is expressed when he first talked with someone not Scarlett (a redhead), this one being Erlina. He's oddly conscious enough to know he'd probably be tolerant if this was Scarlett saying the exact same words as her.

Connor Zarth, Engineer

Delgon Ether, Fencer

Eclaire Morgan

Elizabeth Black

  • Ascended Extra: Was formerly a somewhat recurring extra in a fanfiction story. She then came to join Class E, thus following her own story.
  • Broken Bird
  • In-Series Nickname: Lizzie
  • In the Blood: Elizabeth is actually the daughter of two Imperial officers, following the end of the first war. She was born in Gallia, and resents her Imperial heritage. Her bio also reveals she's secretly supposed to be Berthold Gregor's niece.
  • Fantastic Racism: Against Darcsens. Though, she acknowledges how "Imperial" it is.
  • Put on a Bus: For the second continuity, anyway. The author states he wants to put her back in the action at a later date.
  • Screw Destiny: Her parents left Gallia following the start of the second Europan War to join the Empire. They expected Elizabeth to do the same, though she basically did the opposite and joined the Gallian Militia, to fully show she's loyal to her true home.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran
  • Survivor Guilt

Emeryk Bielecki, Engineer

Garret Reinhartd

  • Big Brother Instinct: Towards Sarah.
  • Sole Survivor: Turns out he and Scarlett were the only ones who survived Class E those several years. Curiously enough, Scarlett's the only one who seems to be aware of, and actually labeled as a Jinx...
  • Written-In Absence: He was a member of Class E for three years, supposedly already registered for this year as well, and he only starts to pop up in a forest in the middle of January, after missing the first several weeks. His excuse? He was off visiting his destroyed hometown.

Jonah Weed, Lancer

Josephine "Josie" Hawke, Engineer

Kacie Syrup

Katarina Sterling, Engineer

Katie Syrup, Shocktrooper

Leos Klein, Shocktrooper

Meline Bertrand, Scout

Mikhail, Lancer

Sarah Meru, Scout

  • Shrinking Violet
  • Na´ve Newcomer
  • Written-In Absence: Evidently she was supposed to be in Lanseal when the aptitude tests were starting, but her parents apparently weren't letting her out of the house, due to her sheltered upbringing, plus her own shy demeanor.

Sophie Mueller, Lancer

  • Boobs of Steel: One of the roleplayers often portrayed her as this in her fanart, and Erlina eventually lampshades it.
  • But Not Too Foreign: You'd think coming from Kaujai would hinder her ability to speak with Gallians.
  • Child Soldier
  • Crazy-Prepared
  • Genius Ditz: A brilliant soldier with more than 10 years of combat experience... but when it comes to learning what a mascot is or any social interactions outside of fighting, she is like a complete child.
  • Ret Goned: Current status unknown, to say the least.

Subject Seven, AKA Paragon

Zach Seitz, Shocktrooper
