  • Break Her Heart To Save Her: In one episode, when Kalos felt as if Sarah should pursue her own dream, he tells her to leave with their old friend Andy since she's "no longer needed", leaving her in tears. His plan is ruined when Sora intervenes and forces him to confess his true feelings.
  • Career-Ending Injury: He used to be a Stage Magician, but he injured his fingers and now can't perform magic tricks.
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead
  • Engineered Public Confession: In order to let Sarah know how he truly feels, Sora goes to Kalos' office and teases him to reveal his true feelings. In the meantime, the others bring Sarah to the stage, and she listens to Kalos's words via Sora's hidden microphone.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: Invoked by Sora when she sees a photo of his younger self (alongside a teen!Sarah and their companion Andy) and can't believe the baby-faced youth in the picture is him.

  • Sink-or-Swim Mentor
  • Team Dad
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He believes himself to be such, since he asked Aaron if he truly was up to performing the very dangerous Fantastic Maneouver... a few hours before Aaron failed to do it and died, which is the reason why Yuri is pissed off at him enough to try buying out the Stage as revenge.
