A boy who, while traveling in search of clues about the people who destroyed his home town, finds a girl named Lily in a research lab. He rescues her, gaining a powerful device and becoming a fugitive from the TSAB in the process.
A.I. Is a Crapshoot: The Book Of The Silver Cross messed with Tohma's sight and hearing, hijacked his body and attacked anyone it considered a threat (which was pretty much anybody), and was close to ending the lives of numerous people in its several chapter-long rampage. All because it was its duty to protect its Driver. It'd be an understatement to say this was a faulty defense program.
Art Evolution: The designs of his reacted form has changed. Compare Chapter 4 here to the image link to Chapter 22 under "Big Freaking Gunblade". Notice the extra details?
Beware the Nice Ones: After accidentally triggering "Divide Zero" the first time and nearly killed two ships worth of people, Touma threatened Fortis he would use it again unless they let his friends and the Section 6 members incapacitated on board go.
Break the Cutie: A flashback in Chapter 5 showed he suffered one in the past that lasted from the destruction of his hometown all the way till his first meeting with Subaru. He noted that his meeting with her family was the first time he smiled since the destruction of his town.
Cloudcuckoolander: Seems to be overly-friendly to the point of best friends to the Huckebeins and doesn't seem to take the warnings given to him in stride. However, he hasn't actually demonstrated any actions that would back this up, such as letting the Hucks go or helping them in any way.
Contrasting Sequel Main Character: He is an opposite to Nanoha herself in many ways. While Nanoha is as female magical ace who is very sure of what she is doing and is clad in white with a slight enthusiasm for combat, Tohma is a normal male with a story-breaking anti-magic ability, dressed in black attire when reacted, and doesn't have the same desire for combat like most of the cast.
Crutch Character: Zigzagged. Tohma's main reason for being on the team is that the equipment isn't exactly perfected yet and have to resort to using someone like him given his powers are handy. He has only recently undergone some training, however, and hasn't really been able to demonstrate his abilities yet. He has been successful as part of a team, though.
Dark Is Not Evil: He has the same power as the Huckebein and his reacted form gives him overly black attire and armor, but he is on the side of good.
The Ditz: Sorta. Most of it is due to not getting the hang of the military style the cast goes by. He comes across as someone who isn't probably cut out for military service, and yet he's been forced into it, so it ends up making him look like this.
Doomed Hometown: Two people destroyed his entire home, apparently killing everyone except him. He's looking for them.
He Just Don't Get It: He doesn't really seem to buy the comments by everyone else that the Hucks shouldn't be reasoned with. But given that he has empathy due to being infected himself, and that Nanoha went against orders to save Fate, one could say this is the natural result.
Hey You: The number of Eclipse infectees who don't refer to him as "Zero Boy" or variants can be counted on a single hand.
Hidden Depths: Earlier chapters showed he had rather deep resentments concerning the incident of the two murderers involved in the Vaizen Mines. In Chapter 4, he actually attacks Veyron first on the implications that he was one of the culprits in the event just by seeing the familiar blue wing marks.
Honor Before Reason: Noted by several characters that he feels a debt towards the Huckebein for receiving help from them despite the fact they're wanted criminals.
Horrible Judge of Character: Kinda bad in this regard about the Huckebein in general. Although this can be partially explained because he understands what the virus does to you, and thus he has empathy.
Isis later mocks him for it, saying it would be a bad idea to let him get close to Hades.
How Do I Shot Web?: Since Section 6 cannot exactly teach him how to use his Eclipse powers, he doesn't really know how to utilize his Story Breaker Power to the fullest effect. Most of the information on how to use them has been mostly through Huckebein members like Cypha and Fortis.
Ill Boy: When you consider he is technically infected with the still-incurable Eclipse, he is technically this to a degree. He also suffered some illness symptoms just after fighting Veyron for the firs time too.
Informed Ability: During his fight with Nanoha, the latter notes that his fighting style is unlike anything she's seen before. The artwork of the chapter this is brought up in depicts him...slashing with his sword, hardly anything a veteran combat trainer would be surprised by in this setting.
It should be noted that the fight above was when he was under the Book's control, meaning it was essentially auto-pilot. This trope is stronger when he is in control of himself since he seems to be a terrible battler in spite of Nanoha's claims of his potential and the training received. However, Nanoha herself was once untrained, too, and yet had natural untapped talent, so he is following in her footsteps as a typical shonen hero.
Life Drain: The "Divide Zero" is implied to be this.
Like Brother and Sister: With Subaru. Chapter four confirms that she's the "Su-chan" he's previously described as being like an older sister to him, and was planning on making him part of her family.
Living Macguffin: The Huckebein desire him for his ability and potential to be a member, but Nanoha and company are making sure to prevent that.
The Load: For someone who has a highly coveted Story Breaker Power, he is practically the worst combat performer of the three, especially given Lily is starting to remember her duties as a Reactor Plug and take lessons from Reinforce II while Isis has been profiting immensely from the training sessions.
Marked Change: When he uses the Divider, markings appear and one remains on his arm after his fight with Veyron.
Meaningful Name: His Divider is numbered 996. Like the Dividers used by Cypha (944) and Veyron (928), each is named after a different model of Porsche. In Tohma's case, 996 refers to the 996-series Porsche 911, the first series of 911s to use water-cooled engines rather than air-cooled engines, just as Tohma is the first male main character in a possible heterosexual relationship within the entire series.
My Hero Zero: He has the number associated with him due to the Zero Gene / Zero Effect.
Nice Guy: Arguably too nice. He gave a "Good luck" to both SignumandCypha before letting them battle, and the latter is one of the enemies who hacked apart the former (who happens to be his mentor) with a smile on her face. He doesn't seem to have an idea what kind of people the Huckebein are. Or perhaps he knows better than the rest of the cast.
Sympathy for the Devil: Is guilty of doing this to the Huckebein, a group of psychopathic serial killers. Even noted by some of the older cast.
Technical Pacifist: Would rather avoid combat if possible, but will react if it will aid his friends.
Thou Shalt Not Kill: He is the only Eclipse infectee who has yet to truly kill someone and is trying to make an effort to keep it that way.
Took a Level in Dumbass: He was a lot more aware of things around him and even held his own against Veyron at one point early in Force. Recently, he seems to either space out and make bad judgments or get nearly killed by people such as Kurt. To make it more clear, while he has been worse of a performer, his other two friends are going in the opposite direction to varying degrees. This could be explained that he is used to being on his own, and is having trouble incorporating in a military unit and assimilating military training. Any civilian would have issues in such a circumstance.
Unwitting Instigator of Doom: When one really thinks about it, Tohma's rescue of Lilly ended up snowballing from a simple rescue to forcing the heroes to respond more quickly and hastily, triggered the Huckebein's response and the eventual meeting of both sides, and eventually causing a lot of damage in the long-run.
Walking the Earth: Was doing this prior to the story beginning in the hopes of finding a sense of peace with himself.
What the Hell, Hero?: So far downplayed. His over-friendly behavior to other Eclipse infected, only ends up being scolded several times by Reinforce Zwei and Isis.
The Worf Effect: Outside of a few fights, he seems to be on the losing end in fights despite having the Zero Gene. It should be noted that the zero effect is essentially a WMD which will hit friend and foe alike, thus explaining why he hasn't used it yet.
Wrecked Weapon: His Divider has been destroyed on several occasions, but seems to be able to repair itself.
Poisonous Person: Before she met Tohma, The Virus inside her killed anyone who touched her almost immediately. Due to the scientists' desire to collect more data, that number was at least 70 people, probably a lot more. And they all died by mutating into blobs of flesh. No wonder she repressed those memories.
Sensor Character: Hinted at in Chapter 27 that she can detect "enemy" infectees.
Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: She acts as this to Touma in regards to the latter's bad habit of making the repeat mistake of being too friendly to other infectees. She reminds Tohma not to get close to Hades because he might end up convincing him.
Crazy-Prepared: Have pockets and a bag with various useful stuff as also a wide variety of perfume spells for various situations including one specifically designed to scramble the direction system of any guided projectile which proven to be very effective against ArnageofHuckebein.
Hidden Depths: She seems like a carefree Genki Girl traveller. However, there are hints that she's hiding something - she secretly worries about being deported by the TSAB, she can fly, she has a barrier jacket and a pair of devices, and can break steel manacles with her bare hands, not to mention still fight after getting her neck broken with an axe. But see Red Herring below.
Jumped at the Call: Quite willing to help Tohma after hearing that he's on the run from the TSAB. She later has second thoughts after considering what Huckebein and the TSAB would do to them, but decides that it's worth it to be with friends her age.
Took a Level in Badass: She was a very capable fighter as she was, but she has been improving her skills on the battlefield thanks to the training provided by Nanoha, Vita, and Signum. The Grendel incident has shown this, where she was practically able to stop Mariya on her own while Tohma's performance was rather forgettable to say the least.
Eviler than Thou: While Curren has shown some somewhat humanizing traits (at least only towards her family members), Hades Vandein has shown nothing but a heavy air of evil since his appearance. He has such a massive killing intent that the cast in the area see hallucinations of it. It's hard to say if it was illusion powers or if he is that evil.
Villain with Good Publicity: Until the cast was able to get a confession out the Grendels (who had explosives set in their brains), they were having extreme difficulty getting a warrant for his arrest.
Well-Intentioned Extremist: He is conducting illegal experiments of the Eclipse virus by infecting people and sending them out onto low-key worlds because he is seeking to find an alternate source of energy from utilizing it.
The Huckebein Family
The antagonists of Force. A group of infamous killers that are known for slaughtering whole settlements, leaving no one alive. They are not actually related, but are all infected with the Eclipse virus. Widely believed to be invincible, they are now after Tohma in the hope that he will join their family.
Tropes common to the Huckebein:
Animal Motif: Very minor, but their family name can mean "evil bird" (as evident when Quinn was referring to Cypha as "fowl" in Chapter 23) and they share the same wing-like marking on their bodies. They don't really show anything of this trope past this, though.
Anti-Magic: They take this Up to Eleven, especially in reacted form, where conventional devices shatter upon contact with their bodies.
Their tendency to No Sell everything has made this power somewhat redundant, however. It's only actually been used once so far.
As of Chapter 29, Section Six now has a mean to nullify this to a degree with bullets that inject antibiotics.
Hey You: To drive in how arrogant they are, they almost never call any of the cast by their actual names (aside from Tohma). They usually call Isis "Flatty/Washboard" for amusement and any of the Section 6 members "Public Servant" as a derogatory name.
No Sell: Almost EVERYTHING! If Chapter 19 and 23 are anything, even other infectees don't fair any better, unless that infectee is Tohma possessed by the Book of the Silver Cross or Hades Vandein.
Not So Invincible After All: As of later chapters, this trope has been slowly creeping in since Cypha's defeat in Chapter 24. In Chapter 29, Teana has shown their chances at studying the Eclipse by nullifying their Healing Factor with bullets filled with antibiotics. Compounding with the improvements done to the Anti-EC equipment, Section Six are now capable of doing reliable damage to infectees. Even Veyron acknowledges that they no longer have a one-sided advantage anymore.
Power High: They enjoy their Eclipse powers a bit too much.
Power Tattoo: Every one of them has the same kind of markings, implying to be the result of the Eclipse.
Sigil Spam: All of them do share one marking pattern: A stylized design of a wing.
Arnage and Veyron attack the two other Eclipse-infected because the Huckebein don't attack innocents willy-nilly and their doing so brings unnecessary attention on the Hucks, who are convenient to misblame.
This also extends to their behavior around Tohma. They make the effort to avoid harming the people he loves to avoid causing disfavor with someone they want to join them. Arnage is the only one who seems sincere on her feelings with wanting him to join though.
Psychopathic Manchildren: Although one of them is an actual kid. They don't seem to give much concern about anything unless it is them and indulge in rather hedonistic activities when they aren't doing an errand or job.
Too Powerful to Live: Type 1 - They are overpowered as hell and are easily the most dangerous characters around, but they didn't disappear quickly and as a consequence they're dominating the story for now.
Unskilled, but Strong: With the exception of Veyron (who can't react) and a few others, a large majority of the Huckebein are very over-reliant on the powers of the Eclipse virus and their divders. The only thing mitigating this is how broken their power is.
Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: They seem to become this. Sure, they have to try to find a way so they could control their Eclipse disease. But their unsympathetic actions, like slaughtering villages and communities, massacring the innocent people who had nothing to do with their affair is not a justifications for their reason to survive. Emphasize more on "Destroyer of Worlds" rather than "Woobie", due their personality.
You Can't Fight Fate: Their general reaction to Section 6 trying to save Tohma and finding a cure to the Eclipse in general is mostly this.
Veyron of Huckebein
The first introduced antagonist, who is seeking Lily and Tohma's Divider.
Badass: He is one of the few Huckebein who have shown legitimate credentials of this trope by virtue of his fighting skills and inability to fall on an ability to react. Fortis even mentioned the idea of getting him a better Divider in order to react, but Veyron's response was that he was good enough as he is. Curren even has high regards for him as a competent battler.
But for Me, It Was Tuesday: In earlier chapters, it was heavily implied that he was one of the two who attacked the Vaizen Mines that caused Touma years of hell before running into Subaru, but he doesn't seem to recall the details or even care for that matter.
The Dragon: Curren seems to have special attention to him more than the others in their group, implying he may be this in spite of lacking an ability to React.
Establishing Character Moment: Tohma and co. first encounter him in a Church full of slain nuns. Not only this establishes him as a nonchalant killer, but does it to the Huckebein and most Eclipse infectees as a whole.
Only Sane Man: While his mind isn't any more intact than Cypha or Arnage, he seems to be the only one in general to be aware of Tohma's general uselessness and doesn't think he is worth recruiting due to being a liability more than anything. Even though others insist, Veyron's point is still correct.
Power Fist: Along with his Divider, he uses this to make up for being unable to react.
The Rival: Was introduced as one for Touma, but they seem to have forgotten about that for the time being. There was some implications that he might been a culprit in the destruction of his hometown.
Taking the Bullet: Takes a hit directed at Sonica by Vandein in Chapter 29, at the cost of his heart.
Weak, but Skilled: He can't React, but that hasn't stopped him from holding his own against RF 6 or defeating a Reacted enemy Eclipse infectee in direct combat.
Not-So-Harmless Villain: He's only weaker in comparison with his fellow Huckebeins. He still has very high endurance(as shown when he withstood a direct shot from a Strike Cannon and continued to fight despite bleeding) and his Claw Grab equipment has easily put him on par with other reacted EC-Drivers. He has also showed himself to be even stronger than Subaru. Coupled with his Determinator qualities and cool head, he is quite the dangerous opponent.
Overshadowed by Awesome: The Reacted EC-Drivers he had fought on-screen were implied to have had an infection that wasn't the real thing. When he fights an infectee who won on the higher tier of the lottery, such as Vandein, he ends up getting thrashed.
Worthy Opponent: He was surprised at how well Tohma was holding up in their initial fight, even impressed at how he got some damage and was disappointed to run out of ammo.
Cypha of Huckebein
Tropes related to Cypha:
The Ace: She likes to describe herself as this. How true that is, however, is yet to be confirmed.
Blood Knight: Her previous stoicism is replaced by bloodthirsty enthusiasm once Signum starts putting up a good fight. And, as the following events show, she will do anything to win.
But for Me, It Was Tuesday: It took her a few minutes to remember exactly which colony Signum was accusing her of slaughtering, in spite of the fact that she personally murdered every single one of the nearly eighty inhabitants.
Curb-Stomp Battle: Against Quinn Garland of the Grendel Family. Cypha overpowers her at first, then Quinn reveals she was only using the basic form of her divider and promptly reacts. Cypha quickly trashes her anyway.
Evil Gloating: To Signum, about slaughtering a world's entire population.
Evil Mentor: Tries to play as one to Touma whenever she meets up with him. In Chapter 23, she shows him a few basic tricks provided by the Eclipse virus to become a better fighter. This is probably because she wants him skilled enough by the time he is in their family.
Mood-Swinger: She can be either stoic or psychotic, depending on the situation.
Oh Crap: She... underestimated Signum, to put it lightly.
Paper Tiger: An understated example. Despite having a threatening appearance and personality, so far Cypha has gotten smacked around by Signum with a handicap (admittedly before reacting), not proven to be a great challenge for Fate without one, knocked unconscious by Touma with Divider Zero, failed to impede Heimdall when it was about to destroy the Esquad, and now been defeated and forced to flee by Signum, with an arguably worse handicap this time.
Ignored Rival: Zigzagged. While Signum acknowledges her as a personal enemy, she still is a professional and would rather focus on the arrest more than finishing personal business.
Sadist: And bloody hell how! It was clear she was outright screwing with Quinn in their fight in Chapter 23 likely for this reason.
Smug Snake: Several examples since her introduction but special mention goes to Ch. 24. When Signum finally returns with an AEC-Equipement and challenge Cypha to a re-match, Cypha's reaction was to fight Signum with a divider taken from an enemy she just trashed shortly before (see Curb-Stomp Battle above for details) instead of using her own, furtherly mocking Signum's low-level threat to her eye. And that utterly bit her back in the ass.
Token Wholesome: Unlike the other two adult women of the Huckebein, Cypha's normal outfit is a fully-covering bodysuit. But Pure Is Not Good, and despite her conservative clothing she's the most outwardly vicious of the lot.
Villainous Breakdown: She was keeping calm in her rematch with Signum until the former surprised her with a few alloy needles from her shield. After that, her combat performance went downhill.
BFGs: Biggest example of this in Nanoha, which is really saying something.
Big Eater: Implied to be one of the reasons the Huckebein restore their food stocks rather frequently.
Blood Knight: Unlike Cypha, she sees the notion of fighting Section Six with pure enthusiasm rather than immense sadism.
Boisterous Bruiser: Villainous example. She is brash, loud, and energetic compared to most of the group. She also emphasizes the 'bruiser' with sheer firepower.
The Brute: Shares this role with Deville. She'd rather just blast down anything with the sheer power of her reacted Divider. She starts getting frustrated in her skirmish with Isis precisely because she can't use her normal tactics.
Crippling Overspecialization: Until Deville interfered, Arnage was practically unable to do anything to Isis. Needless to say, Isis practically made her look like an idiot.
Cowgirl: Dones this kind of dress with a cowboy hat included in her next appearance in Chapter 18. She drops this outfit by her next appearance though.
The Nicknamer: Mostly towards Isis in regards to her cup-size. A number of the Huckebein adopt those names when referring to her when talking to Touma.
Oh Crap: Freaks out when seeing Touma's Hundred Million attack. And she also underestimated Isis "Flatty" Eaglet and her chemicals.
Person of Mass Destruction: Fortis does not want her to engage in combat inside the Esquad. After seeing her react, it was clear she would have probably caused a lot of damage to the ship by accident due to her personality. Needless to say, she likely has the most offense potential of the Huckebein.
Trigger Happy: She opted to do the trope mentioned above as a solution towards the "Hundred Million" attack instead of fleeing.
Violent Glaswegian: It sounds like she is from the fantasy equivalent of Scotland/Ireland given she says things with an accent ('ey, 'ell, etc), has the red hair associated, and has a bit of a temper to match.
Cute Mute: She typically communicates solely through facial expressions and pantomime that the other Huckebeins translate into complete sentences... somehow. She becomes capable of speech only after merging with the Huckebein's ship.
Cute and Psycho: Imagine someone like Vivio infected with the Eclipse virus.
Moral Myopia: Refers to the TSAB Forces intruding on their ship as "bugs" and argues that the TSAB shouldn't be coming after them for their killings since they do them on non-administrated worlds. Could be justified due to her young age.
Spaceship Girl: She seems to have the power to control the Huckebein Family's spaceship fortress by merging her consciousness with it. She can even enhance the ship's powers and repair damage it's taken.
Token Mini-Moe: For the Huckebein, but her behavior tends to fling all "moe" points out of the window.
Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: She is the youngest known Eclipse infectee and she shares their same enthusiasm for bloodthirstiness, destruction and murder.
Evil Genius: Mentioned to be the brains of the group in his Force Analyzer profile.
Informed Ability: The only things he's done so far in the story are exposit information and stand in the bridge doing absolutely nothing in the middle of an attack. It seems like this intelligence doesn't extend to actual fighting, ironically. Then there was the fact he was doing the opposite of winning Touma over by discussing unsavory things like murder.
It Gets Easier: His attitude on killing, which is necessary for him to survive.
Mr. Exposition: He was this in-universe for Touma by being the first person to explain some of the details of how the nature of the virus works for him. He never got around to explaining details on the "zero effect".
Non-Action Guy: We have yet to see him do anything outside of being Mission Control while the other male Huckebeins have displayed their abilities.
Benevolent Boss: Moodiness aside, she is rather respectful to her own family members and wasn't keen on selling Touma over to Hades, even using her abilities to assure their safety while fighting with them.
Badass: As smug as she is, one can't deny that she demonstrated the legitimacy of her badass credentials by one-shotting three of the most powerful current characters with a normal sword and not even bothering to activate her Eclipse powers.
Berserk Button: She does not take kindly whenever her family is deceived or screwed over in anyway. She also was less than pleased when Hades suggested her selling out Touma to him for informaiton on the Seed Of Origin.
Big Bad: The official leader of the Huckebein Family.
Big Damn Heroes: Inverted in the villain-saving-villain sense. When Hayate is casting the Heimdall spell to bring an iceberg on the Huck-ship, it looks like Cypha can't carve it up in time until Curren shanks the former, causing the iceberg to break.
Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Her laid-back and child-like behavior has a habit of giving way to her ruthless and more unhinged side rather often.
Cat Smile: Sports something similar to this in Chapter 13 after stabbing Hayate.
Curb-Stomp Battle: Defeats Vita and Erio with ease despite both being armed with Strike Cannons, she even managed to destroy both AEC weapons with a sword that wasn't even a Divider.
Come Chapter 28 and she ends up on the receiving end along with Veyron thanks to Hades.
Cloudcuckoolander: A villainous example, and not meant to be endearing. To add some perspective, fellow Huckebeins Cypha, Fortis and Arnage are more closer to reality than she is. For example, she mentioned she has finally made her debut in Chapter 13 with a pseudo Cat Smile and acted like the battle was a stage. In another, when she is contacting Touma via his book, she is multi-tasking and nonchalantly discussing a meeting even though Section Six might be listening in. Finally, if Vandein's lines are anything, she doesn't seem to take the infection as seriously as most.
Deadpan Snarker: When she is really condescending, she tends to indulge in belittling in her foes.
Faux Affably Evil: The silly mannerisms and the laid back way she acts to Tohma hides the fact she is just as vicious and ruthless as the rest of the Huckebein. Lampshaded by Reinforce Zwei when she warns Tohma to not forget she is acting like that to appeal to him.
Foil: Arguably, to Hayate. Both are revered among their peers and are their leaders, own powerful books, and possess great ability to lead. As for differences, Hayate is one of the strongest mages who sucks in melee and was highly mature even as a child, while Curren is one of the strongest Eclipse infectees, a monster in close combat and is downright immature even as an adult. Or little kid.
She also is a foil to Tohma and Lily. Like them, she has stronger-than-normal Eclipse power, a book user, and has a slightly childish outlook on life. Unlike them, she knows how to utilize her powers fully.
In an odd way, she is also one to Vivio. She also has the ability change her body age, but unlike Vivio, she is lacking in maturity and is a Jerkass while Vivio is Wise Beyond Their Years and is a Nice Girl. Also, while Vivio is a protagonist of her own series, Curren is an antagonist (or Villain Protagonist, depending how you look it) of this one.
She, like Isis, knows well enough that it would be a bad idea if Tohma was to ever get in contact with Hades Vandein. Although it was less poor choice of judgment and more of concern Hades would get his hands on the Zero Gene and replicate it.
Giggling Villain: Typically, characters who speak with musical notes use it in a somewhat endearing manner. Curren does not.
Green Thumb: A lot of her book's powers involves plants.
Hey You: Actually averted in chapter 29, where she asks for and calls Fate by her last name. This is after Fate and Erio land a combo attack on her, so it could mean she's willing to show some respect now.
Hope Bringer: To the rest of the Huckebein family. Demonstrated when she appeared and stabbed Hayate In the Back dispelling the HEIMDALL spell which had been putting the Hucks on a tight spot, upon seeing her all the Huckebein rejoiced which was followed by Curren's speech. Say what you want about the woman and her horrible crimes and smugeness but you must admit she's a born leader with a great charisma.
Jerkass: Even more so than the other Huckebeins, if not, other Eclipse infectees.
Katanas Are Just Better: Played with. Her sword breaks after destroying Vita's and Erio's Strike Cannons, yes. But she was also using a completely mundane weapon with no magical ability at all when she destroyed them.
Wounded Gazelle Gambit/I Surrender, Suckers: Although she's not injured badly, she's pulling this by suggesting Fate and other Section 6 members to arrest Hades. And then she's reverts to her child form and runaway alongside with her fellow Huckebein.
The Huckebein "Fortune Teller" who meets up with Cypha in Chapter 25 . Not much is known about her at the moment.
Tropes related to Sonica:
Berserk Button: Isn't fond of doing things for free, especially if they were nothing.
Brilliant, but Lazy: According to Fortis, if she wanted to bother, she can get all information out of her targets. Of course, she doesn't want to do it.
Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Chapter 26 reveals she has an amazing talent at extracting information/"data" off the people she touches and is essentially a downright irreplacable informant or interrogator. Unfortunately, Fortis notes she beats to her own drum, is never on time, and charges her clients an exorbitant fee, even with a discount. Sonica notes the 800K cost isn't so bad considering those will pay for her services tenfold.
Chained by Fashion: Downplayed. She wears some chains around her hip with her belt and at the shoes, but that seems to be in.
The Smart Girl: Is actually better than Fortis at this because of her ability to extract information.
The Team Normal: In Chapter 28, when she along with Curren and Veyron got trapped in binds, the latter two instantly broke out while she was still tied up. This would hinting at the Fortune Teller being possibly the only non-infected member and can explain why there is no visible markings on Sonica at all and staying close to Curren. It then gets further emphasis on Chapter 29 where Curren and Veyron are focused on keeping her safe since they know she cannot take a hit.
Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: They might come off as disorganized teenagers, but Touma learns the hard way not to underestimate them when Kurt shatters the blade of his divider with ease as well as nearly strangling the boy.
Defeat Means Friendship: Subverted. Section Six shut them down, Tohma looked like he was becoming friends with Kurt, and they seem to not mind their new conditions. Then comes their next appearances, and the four are trying to escape their prison.
Diminishing Villain Threat: They went from somewhat intimidating and dangerous to being used for humor so far. And they're infected with a virus in a series that is the darkest in the Nanoha franchise to date.
Heavy Sleeper: Kurt sleeps through the trip on way to their prison area, in which the rest of the group was exchanging insults and death threats.
Hey You: They rarely call Kurt by his actual name, instead referring to him as "Dumbass".
Hypercompetent Sidekick: All three of the girls are more competent than Kurt, but Mariya stands out. Due to being (mostly) sane compared to the others, she caused the most damage of the four by sniping Touma and the Raptors into submission without any effort. Kurt is aware of this and actually intended for her to take over in the event of his death because of it.
Hyperspace Arsenal: Kurt invokes this by pulling out a candy bar out of nowhere in the middle of interrogation, foreshadowing his ability in Chapter 27.
Improbable Weapon User: Mariya uses bullets without using a gun. Lolo also gets a mention for using tasers, but both are justified for presumably being their divders.
Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: While they are still dangerous opponents, they are nowhere near as effective as the Huckebein in skill and power. As time goes on, the ineffectual part plays more and more.
Jerkass: As expected of Eclipse infectees, but it is noted they aren't as severe as the Huckebein.
Smarter Than You Look: For someone whose nickname is "dumbass" among his friends, Kurt has a habit of displaying his leadership skills among the Grendel and is much more competent than Tohma.
Space Master: Kurt can warp his posessions, and his friends' too if they are touching him, without any effort. On the downside, he could can only retrieve items considered "his" or his friends if they are in contact with him. The range seems to be wide given Kurt was able to take back Quinn's divider, which was stolen by the Huckebein.
One of the requirements for his ability is for the item he wants to retrieve to be in the same dimension as he is. Thus the only way to keep Kurt from getting back "his" possessions is to place them in another dimension.
