CandyThe player character. A girl who moves from an unnamed school to Sweet Amoris High at the beginning of the game. She is an Ordinary High-School Student who gets caught up in the lives of her classmates—especially the cute ones. Basically you in that you can choose how she looks and what her name is and of course how she answers to other people. However the game itself does give her a little character beyond your control.
Tropes associated with your Candy
- Ambiguously Brown: A given if you change her skin tone. This is driven in even further by the fact that all of her relatives are drawn with light skin tones, and knowing her personality, you'd expect her to bring it up if she was adopted when she finds out the twins are (not to mention Castiel making a joke about her mother being much prettier than she is, which would kind of fall flat if they weren't biologically related.)
- Butt-Monkey: If there is some kind of humiliation, punishment, or misfortune to suffer, she will suffer it.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: Though it really depends on the choices you make and what boys you like, once you get your candy going she can really get this way. One promenint example is in episode 14 if you choose to stay and help Nathaniel and Melody set up the stage. Just look at her thoughts towards Melody (though to be fair, Melody isn't quite that nice to you either).
- Covert Pervert: For such a nice, sweet girl, she does show some pretty.. questionable tendencies. One rather amusing example is in episode 23, where, despite knowing the seriousness of the situation, she briefly forgets her worries to comment on the fact that Nathaniel sleeps in boxers.
- Deadpan Snarker: Grew into this role in later episodes. To be fair, seeing the characters and situations she has to deal with daily it was only natural she'd develop a sense of snark.
- Girl Next Door
- Hair Color Dissonance: Her black hair option looks almost purple. It's especially evident in illustrations with Armin.
- Heroic Self-Deprecation: Despite how much she does to help others, she has a tendency to be pretty down on herself in her internal monologue. Others, such as Patrick, even point this out.
- Hormone-Addled Teenager: She spends a good amount of episode 37 thinking about sex. At one point she even has a sex dream.... only it's about Evan, not her boyfriend. She feels guilty about that specific aspect.
- Idiot Ball: Occasionally has this in her hands. One good example is when she sneaks into the boys locker room and hides in a locker just to see Lysander's tattoo when she could've just asked him what it was (and if your LO'M is high enough, he would show it to you anyway). What makes this an idiot ball is the fact that sneaking into the locker room is the only way you Candy could see Nathaniel's bruises.
- Invisible Parents: They've been mentioned but to date the only adult relative we see of hers is her aunt.
- As of episode 20 this is subverted as they finally show up.
- Nervous Wreck: She's always been somewhat anxious but in later episodes, her anxiety becomes an established part of her character. For example, Alexy mentioning college causes her to have a panic attack.
- Nosy Classmate: A staple of her character is that she is incredibly curious about the other students' lives. Several objectives are just to find out about some secret some character has. She's almost as bad as Peggy in this regard.
- Oblivious to Love: Oddly enough for a dating sim. She stresses to Lucy that boys don't really like her (except Kentin and Dake) but Lucy points out that plenty of guys have liked her, she just never noticed. Also of note, when guys with high LO'Ms give off hints that they like her, she makes one little inward comment noting their hint before brushing it off entirely (which frustrates the players who want to start dating already).
- The Everygirl: Our protagonist most certainly represents the kind of girl that is behind the other side of the screen. At the start of the game she is just another high school student trying to get her paperwork ready. She gets to meet really obnoxious girls, as well as good friends, and most importantly, has a crush on a certain someone (or someones).
- Tsundere: Very mild type B version. Like Deadpan Snarker above she appears to be pushed into this mindset thanks to her every day life (meaning constant teasing by the guys especially Castiel and Kentin).
- Virtual Paper Doll
BoysThe almost all dateable boys of the game. Each boy has a love o'meter (LO'M) that tells you how much they like you. The higher it is the more they like you. This has an affect on things such as who you can date at the end of an episode, how they react to certain things (such as actions that would warrant jealousy), and even the things they say to you. At the end of almost every episode you can get a date with the boy with the highest LO'M. But be careful! You have to say the right thing AND choose the right outfit or else you'll miss your date!
The Student Body President and one of the first boys you can meet. Nathaniel is a nice, respectable guy who can be studious to a fault. He can get a bit too serious at times but your candy can always get him to lighten up. He has a rocky relationship with his little twin sister Amber and it's heavily implied that he does not get along well with his parents. He also hates Castiel with a passion and is now good at drums.
- Abusive Parents: The bruises on his back "happened at home". Confirmed in episode 23, and you get to see just how bad it gets firsthand.
- Adorkable: A different brand than Armin's, but he gets pretty easily flustered, especially at the beginning of the game, which makes him all the more endearing.
- Art Evolution: Nathaniel has had the most sprite changes out of any character, over several years of new episodes:
- Berserk Button: Castiel. Also he does not like your snooping when you learn about his bruises. His LO'M drops majorly.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Aside from the fact that his fuse stick is as short as Castiel's, he is also the type of guy who would throw a rock at the back of your head and when you turn around, smile innocently and say it was the wind.
- Betty and Veronica: He is the male Betty to Castiel's Veronica.
- Big Brother Instinct: There's not many times in the beginning of the game where Nathaniel ISN'T on Amber's side. He also purposefully hides from her the fact that their dad beats him. In later episodes however, he recognizes how bad things actually were between them. He starts calling her out on her bad actions and calls her a pest when she's being bratty...but at the same time he still makes an effort to hang out with her after he moves out of the house.
- Surprisingly, he's actually the younger twin. He's just more mature.
- Butt-Monkey: Let's just say that some events are not very kind to Nathaniel (much to your candy's and occasionally Castiel's amusement).
- Can't Take Criticism: He gets pretty upset if you choose to criticize him, especially related to his skills as student council president. According to the art book, it's because he's such a perfectionist.
- Clothing Reflects Personality: Nathaniel makes 3 major wardrobe changes. His clothes become noticeably less bookwormish as he starts to defrost more. Reaches its climax in episode 24 where he no longer has a tie as a part of his outfit.
- Covert Pervert: He is quite happy to see you in a bathing suit. Later on in the episode your candy notes his suspicious attitude when your bathing suit top falls off and he has to tie it back on.
- Crazy Jealous Guy: Worse than Castiel. Castiel threatens bodily harm but Nathaniel just does it.
- Curtains Match the Window
- Cute Bookworm: He enjoys studying, and we are informed that he's really good at keeping his grades consistent.
- Cut Himself Shaving: He claims the bruises on his back in episode 12 are from him falling. Let's just say they're not.
- Defrosting the Ice King: You were unknowingly doing this the entire time to him. In episode 24, he flat out admits that his 'new personality' is not really all that new. He's just been hiding it better before.
- Dirty Coward: Your candy lets him have it for letting Debrah get away with her deeds. To be fair, he DID try once to take her down when she tarnished his name but it didn't go so well for him.
- Exact Eavesdropping: Twice he overhears some pretty important things that have the added benefit of bringing pain and stress into his life. The third time he does it though everything finally goes right.
- He Cleans Up Nicely: Wears a suit in episode 17 and he looks good.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: It's not like the other boys are bad people, but Nathaniel is presented as being the most conventionally "pure." Now whether this is true or not...
- Hidden Depths: There is much more to this smart guy than just his studies. Much more.
- Instant Expert: He had to learn how to play the drums pretty quickly and he managed to pull it off.
- Kind Hearted Cat Lover: He loves cats, but can't get one due to his mom's allergies. Once he moves out, he gets a kitten.
- Nice Guy
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: One of the sensitive guys to Castiel's Manly Man.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: He's smart, nice and responsible. Amber cheats, is mean, and always tries to get others to take responsibility for HER actions. The differences between the two are pointed out by your candy.
- Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: With Castiel. They do not get along.
- Stepford Smiler: Don't worry about him! Everything in his life is peachy-keen! Honest.
- Student Council President
- They're Called Personal Issues for a Reason: All he wants you to know is he 'fell' at home. Pestering him for more information triggers his Berserk Button.
- The Unfavorite
- Used to Be A Sweet Kid: Inverted. You learn in episode 7 (with some hints in the previous episodes) that he used to be a hellish little brat but is now the polite and respectful Student Council President. It's implied that his home life may have something to do with it.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy:"No. No matter what I do, it's never good enough."
The bad boy of the game, Castiel is also one of the first boys you meet. He is rebellious, snarky teenager who skips class and smokes occasionally but deep down, he is a good guy. He meets his match if your candy has a bit of an edge to her, but that doesn't mean he'll be nice to you right off the bat. He owns a large Belgian Shepherd dog named Demon and plays electric guitar. His best friend is Lysander and he can't stand Nathaniel.
- All Girls want Bad Boys
- Art Evolution:
- The Atoner: Pretty unique example of this. Castiel screams at your candy because he thought she was messing with Debrah, but right after he did it was clear he regretted doing so. So he spends most of episode 17 trying to apologize to your candy but she ain't having it. In a surprising twist though, he tries to apologize before he knew the truth about Debrah.
- Berserk Button: Nathaniel. Just...anything Nathaniel.
- Betty and Veronica: He is the male Veronica to Nathaniel's Betty.
- Big Brother Instinct: Towards Lysander, despite not being older than him.
- Character Development: See his treatment of your candy when she first arrives at Sweet Amoris, verses how he later treats Priya. While it takes him quite a while to warm up to you (probably because he's been hurt in the past), he shows no trouble getting along with Priya (possibly a little TOO well for your candy's taste.) Even if his LOM isn't very high, he's still considerably nicer to you in later episodes.
- Crazy Jealous Guy: The CLASSIC example in this game. Complete with threats of bodily harm.
- Deadpan Snarker: That is, he's deadpan when he's still got his temper.
- Dye Hard: Players are so used to seeing him with his red hair that they forget it's not his real hair color.
- Gray Eyes: The strong-willed, unapproachable type.
- Heroes Want Redheads: Well, your Candy does.
- Starving Student: According to the game's Art Book, his meals are basically microwave dishes and junk food. He even takes care of his dog Demon's feeding necessities more than his own.
- Fiery Redhead / Tall, Dark, and Handsome: His hair is naturally black but he dyed it red. His personality definitely fits the fiery redhead and being one of the tallest guys he certainly fits the second.
- Hair-Trigger Temper
- Handsome Lech: He will insult your bust size often by calling you flat chested. Doesn't stop him from oogling you in a bathing suit.
- Heartbroken Badass: Before you show up his girlfriend had just left him to pursue a career. Set up to happen again once she comes back and is proven to be as mean as ever...
- Horrible Judge of Character: Your candy could tell from the get go what took Castiel two episodes (and in game months if not a year) to understand about Debrah. This also applies to his opinion of Nathaniel as he vehemently and sometimes aggressively believed that Nathaniel was a bad person when he's really not.
- It's Personal: His main reason for hating Nathaniel. He believed Nathaniel flirted with his ex-girlfriend Debrah while they were still dating. Of course, he really should've listened to Nathaniel's side of things.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold
- Mood-Swinger: He can go from easy-going to angry and back in a flash. Lysander and your candy also comment from time to time about his bad moods. Demon is also this way.
- Odd Friendship: His best friend is the introverted and gentle Lysander. They're bandmates, so it's probable music is what brought them together in the first place.
- He's also surprisingly friendly with Iris. Noticeably, in the swimming episode, when Candy suggests to do something, Castiel refuses to do it. But when Iris suggests to do something, he goes along with it. During the art episode, he also remarks that he wouldn't mind being in a group with her or Lysander.
- Parental Abandonment: His mom works as a hostess and his father is pilot which means they aren't around a lot. He is legally independent because of this.
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Manly Man to both Nathaniel and Lysander's sensitive guys.
- Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Nathaniel.
- Tranquil Fury: You know you've pissed Castiel off when he resorts to this. Spending the $100 he gave you on an outfit (instead of the guitar amp it was intended for) and calling him an idiot over a loudspeaker are two great ways to push him too far.
- Troubled, but Cute
- The Snark Knight: If you're going for him, chances are that he helps you out with a vengeance, defends you from Amber, gives you good advice for catching a lost dog, protects you from a meddling stalker, and the like. All while telling you how much of an idiot you are for letting these kind of situations to happen.
- When He Smiles
- Would Not Hit a Girl
The third boy you meet...Well technically you already knew him since he went to the same school as you before. But he is the one that changes the most. He starts off as a clingy boy madly in love with your candy. You could say the meanest things to him and he'd still pop up randomly offering you cookies. But then word of Amber bullying him reaches his father and he gets sent to boot camp to toughen up. He comes back 10 episodes later a changed boy. If you were mean to him, he doesn't like you. If you were nice to you he still likes you but is not nearly as obsessive as he was before. Kentin now seems preoccupied with looking tough, but a few nice words from your candy can have him forget that and be sweet again. He still loves cookies.
- Abhorrent Admirer: Ken fits this trope to a tee. He moved schools just to be near you, offers you cookies out of nowhere and he certainly isn't an adonis. When he comes back from military school, though..
- Adorkable: Even as Kentin. When he makes his crush obvious it's hard not to see him this way. Case in point watch episode 17 where, if his LO'M is high enough, he accidentally asks your candy to marry him (and then quickly tries to back track with a blush and a stutter).
- Art Evolution: Discounting his "nerdy" design, he had an update in 2015:
- Badass Bookworm: His first appearance and current episodes imply he's good at studying and is actually very smart. Military school taught him how to fight and he's also very quick with honed reflexes.
- Because You Were Nice to Me: Hinted to be the reason behind his feelings for your candy.
- Also why he's so close to Evan.
- Berserk Button: Hurting your candy. He was ready to go kill Castiel and Debrah after episode 16. The only thing that stopped him was your candy pointing out the very true fact that he and anyone else who participated would go to jail.
- Beware the Nice Ones
- Butt-Monkey: Even Nathaniel makes fun of his military fashion sense.
- Childhood Friend Romance
- Cry Cute: He does a lot of crying in episode 38. It's both sad and Moe.
- Ditzy Genius
- Dogged Nice Guy: Only in the beginning and only if you choose to make your candy mean to him as Ken will be on your side until he has to leave for military school. However when he comes back as Kentin, he won't be so willing to take being pushed around anymore.
- He Is All Grown Up: Puberty did him justice.
- He Cleans Up Nicely: The reaction a good chunk of the fanbase had to him wearing a suit in episode 17. Though he has been looking good ever since his comeback, the fact that he was standing next to Nathaniel and still managed to stand out cements this trope.
- Hot-Blooded: Since coming back.
- I Hate Past Me: Sees how he was before military school as 'pitiful'. He also panics in episode 27 at the thought of having to wear his old glasses again.
- Inferiority Superiority Complex: After he comes back from military school, he has a tendency to show off how manly he thinks himself (especially in comparison to Castiel), but it's clear upon getting to know him that this is a way of covering up lingering self doubt and self esteem issues.
- I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: If you end up with one of the other guys, Kentin will confess he's still in love with you at the end of episode 38, but wants you to be happy with your boyfriend and values your friendship as it is, though he's clearly still upset.
- Jerkass Ball: In episode 37, as a result of Evan's Toxic Friend Influence. Not only does he start getting into a lot of trouble, but also in general is pretty disrespectful (even to the player character, one of his oldest friends, and Iris, who has never done anything worth being rude about to him or probably anyone else.)
- Laser-Guided Karma: To the players. Safe to say his reintroduction inspired a LOT of talk about who regrets being mean to him when he looked like a geek. Averted however with your candy in the game. Other than yelling at her a little he doesn't really do anything to your candy if she was mean to him.
- Meaningful Rename: He is introduced as Ken but when he leaves and comes back he prefers to go by his full name Kentin. This is because he sees Ken as a silly, childish nickname.
- Miles Gloriosus: Talks a big game but he is clearly still afraid of Castiel. Although things changed briefly in episode 16/17 when his Berserk Button was pressed, things went back to normal full force afterwards.
- Military Brat
- Nice Guy: He is said to have the most tolerant personality and doesn't get as mad when people poke fun at him. This is clearly evident by the fact that he's close to Armin and Alexy (who tease him constantly) and is friends with Nathaniel despite their rocky start as well. And of course being a dating game, he will forgive your candy if she was mean to him in the beginning.
- Not So Different: He is quick to insult Castiel not really realizing that his tough attitude and quick temper are things Castiel is also known for.
- Opaque Nerd Glasses: At first. Once he returns from military school, he has contacts.
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Manly man to Alexy.
- Stalker with a Crush: At first but then he mellows out.
- Sweet Tooth
- Took a Level in Badass
- Tsundere: When he comes back he's a type A to everyone. But if he likes you he is more type B to you.
- Unlucky Childhood Friend or Victorious Childhood Friend: Inevitably ends up as one of these depending which boy you decide to commit to.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Alexy and Armin. They tease, he retaliates.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: He's incredibly conscious of how his father sees him and even the smallest comment from the man will make him fear he's fallen out of favor.
- When He Smiles: One of the things your candy notices when Kentin comes back is "he has a nice smile." She keeps this in her thoughts though.
- Why Couldn't You Be Different?: His father's reaction to the bullying problem is to say he is ashamed and immediately ship Kentin off to boot camp to man up.
- It may be just Tough Love, which worked.
- Would Hit a Girl: He wanted to show Debrah what he learned from military school but your candy wouldn't let him. Mainly because Rosalya already had a better and more legal plan.
One of the two boys you can meet in episode 3. He is a basketball player from another school that visits your school as part of a traveling program. A nice guy he's good at what he can do and if you're a nice girl (and you prove you know your basketball) maybe he'll play you in a game. However he doesn't like to be in debt and doesn't react kindly to freebies. He is only dateable in episode 3 as he goes back to his old school at the end. He makes a reappearance in episode 11 as one of the helpers of the race. You can only meet him if you chose to join the basketball club.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Hasn't been seen since episode 11. While to be fair, he goes to another school, you'd think he'd still check in now and then.
- Don't You Dare Pity Me!: How he possibly sees your candy offering to do things for him for free.
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome
- Token Minority: The only black character that is dateable.
The other boy you can meet in episode 3. He is gardener from another school who shows up at Sweet Amoris to help with the gardening club. Although he isn't impressed by what he sees, if you are a good helper (and prove that you know your plants) then maybe he'll garden with you a little. He is only dateable in episode 3 as he goes back to his old school at the end. He makes a reappearance in episode 11 as one of the helpers of the race. You can only meet him if you choose to join the gardening club.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Along with Dajan. It might be even more notable in his case, considering that since you and Kentin are the only members of the gardening club who actually attend Sweet Amoris, one must wonder who's been looking after the garden.
- Curtains Match the Window
- Green Eyes: To emphasize his connection to plants and nature.
- You Gotta Have Green Hair
- Married to the Job
Officially the fifth boy you meet. Lysander is a mysterious boy who doesn't like talking about himself. But don't worry; if you can respect his privacy and not jump to conclusions about others, he'll open up to you eventually. He is an eloquent singer and songwriter and is quite the gentleman, however he is very forgetful at times. He also very much enjoys fashion, especially Victorian era and Lolita fashion. His best friend is Castiel and he is close to his older brother Leigh and Leigh's girlfriend Rosalya.
- Art Evolution:
- Awesome Anachronistic Apparel
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Downplayed, but he is pretty absentminded.
- Crazy Jealous Guy: More clingy than crazy though.
- Did Not Get the Girl: A relationship chart shows that Lysander USED to have a crush on Rosalya.
- Did you think I can't feel?: Has a moment of these when you're teaming up with Castiel in episode 11, and he ends up teaming up with Nathaniel. You will be given out an opportunity to mock his ability to get lost.
- Lysander:I heard that...
- Farmboy: Grew up with his parents in the countryside.
- Genius Ditz: Very well spoken and good at music but incredibly forgetful.
- Hates Small Talk: Not so much hates it, but tends to not follow a conversation if he is not interested in it or considers it has no point.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: After being hit by a car and sustaining a head injury, he gets amnesia which apparently goes back to when Leigh started dating Rosalya. Unfortunately, that was BEFORE he met you... or Nina.
- Like Brother and Sister: Despite your candy's suspicions, ultimately this is his relationship with Rosalya.
- Mismatched Eyes
- Multicolored Hair
- Nice Guy: Even if you're not on his route, he's practically unfailingly polite and helpful, even worrying about you and your health.
- No Sense of Direction: Let's just say that if you want Lysander to go somewhere, you will physically have to lead him there yourself. Not even a paper with the address on it will help him (in fact he'll lose that too).
- Out-of-Character Moment: Whenever the candy manages to make him blush or feel flustered. Also, he can get really clingy if your lov'o'meter is high enough with him, wich is rather odd for his usual disperse mind.
- Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Forms a platonic duo of this with Rosalya.
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive to Castiel.
- Spell My Name with an "S": His original French name is spelled "Lysandre." The ending of his name changes from version to version.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: He's really distant when talking to someone. Still he can be a real gentleman from time to time, complimenting and defending you when the situation arises.
- The Quiet One
- Third-Option Love Interest: While players were deciding whether to go out with Castiel or Nathaniel early in the game, the time Lysander appeared had many switching over to him instead.
- Yamato Nadeshiko: Rare male version. He rarely if ever loses his cool, has the patience of a saint to be putting up with Castiel at his worst and Rosalya, and finally he is ALWAYS polite even if he does get a bit distant (see episode 9 and his interaction with Dakota).
http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/mycandylove/images/e/e8/DakotaEmotion7.png/revision/latest?cb=20140903232758The fifth boy you meet. He originally only appeared in episode 9 and 11, but he has since become a semi-regular since episode 19. He doesn't attend Sweet Amoris as he lives in Australia, but he frequently comes to France to visit his uncle Boris. Dakota "Dake" is different from the other boys in that he is openly flirtatious with your candy. He thinks you are cute and is eager to let you know it. It doesn't take much to get him to like your candy. Just accept his flirting and show a little interest in return and he'll be happy to keep it up. But he should be wary as his outgoing nature does usually rub the guy you are with at the time very much the wrong way.
- The Casanova: It's not hard for him to attract other women. But unfortunately for them, he's a bit fixated on your candy.
- Chivalrous Pervert: Unlike the other guys, he does not hide the fact that he's attracted to you at all. But rest assured you can count on him to come to your aid or be by your side if he sees you're in trouble.
- Handsome Lech: He talks a lot about how cute you are and is the first one that actually kisses you.
- Hopeless Suitor: Ultimately ends up as this. No matter how much you and your candy might like him, you can only pick one of the regular bachelors to be your candy's boyfriend. He takes the rejection pretty well though.
- Nice Guy: The other half of the time. He stood up for you when two of the girls he was with start to bully you out of jealousy. He also humored Laeti despite knowing that she was lying about being a surfer girl.
- Surfer Dude: He doesn't have the accent but he definitely has the mannerisms.
- The Ugly Guy's Hot Nephew: He's Boris' nephew.
The sixth guy you meet. Alexy is unique in that he's a cute boy, he gets along well with your candy, and he has a profile. But he's...well not dateable. That's right, Alexy is gay and thus it's impossible to date him. He can still be your best friend though. Alexy is incredibly nice and he loves shopping and fashion. He also has a fondness for music and is never seen without his headphones. His older twin brother is Armin and although they get along very well, Alexy does not like how obsessed Armin is with video games.
- Art Evolution: Compare his first design◊ to his second.◊ Unlike everyone else's redesigns, though, Alexy's outfit did not change, probably because he is not dateable.
- Break the Cutie: His betrayal and depression after Armin hacks the public records for their adoption file.
- Clothing Reflects Personality: He has a very colorful wardrobe (the most colorful actually) that reflects his energetic, outgoing, and fashionable personality.
- Et Tu, Brute?: He sides with Debrah. Meta example as well. People have been taking his betrayal the hardest because unlike the others who at least knew Debrah before and thus find it hard to believe what she is capable of, Alexy met her the same time your candy did and so it's a little hard to understand why he took her side so easily. Then again, your candy does confide in him that she thinks something's wrong with Debrah without any proof.
- Episode 17 finally has him explain himself. Turns out this entire time he was a...
- Fake Defector: He was suspicious the moment Debrah tried to pull a Wounded Gazelle Gambit as he thought she was being a bit over dramatic. He only pretended to believe her just in case he needed her trust and that was shown to be a good idea.
- Genre Savvy: Knew right away that Debrah was lying because she was "crying too hard". Not only that, but he still earned her trust (scaring the players and their candies silly in process. See above) just in case he is needed in a revenge plot. And it turned out he was needed.
- Graceful Loser: He takes your relationship with Kentin rather well, if you choose Kentin of course. He fully supports it and even wishes you both well in your relationship.
- Incompatible Orientation: Much to Violette's (and a few players') despair. Also suffers from this himself. He has a crush on Kentin but until further notice, Kentin is straight and vying for your candy. and if you choose Kentin as your boyfriend, he accepts your relationship with understanding.
- Schmuck Bait: After first seeing his upbeat and cheery personality as well as his peculiar but fashionable style, many players will feel taunted to go ahead and start winning the guy's attention to get dates with him. It does not end well.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: Alexy is energetic and loves shopping and fashion. Armin, on the other hand, hates going outside and apparently has such bad fashion sense Alexy chooses his clothes. They are very close despite this (or perhaps because of this.)
- Straight Gay: He may like fashion and shopping but so do a lot of RL straight boys (and Leigh and Lysander) and otherwise his Keet-like personality is rather fleshed out and doesn't revolve around his sexuality.
- Trickster Twins: He's actually more level-headed than Armin most of the time but when it comes fashion or teasing Kentin (and/or your candy) he'll be right there with his twin.
- Purple Eyes: Matches his bright wardrobe.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair
The other twin and the last bachelor to appear so far (although you meet him shortly after you meet Alexy). Armin is much more subdued than his louder twin but he still has a lot of spunk in him. He is a HUGE videogame fan and enjoys it when your candy can understand all of his references (even make a few of her own). He's not an outdoorsy person, preferring to be inside at all times. He focuses a lot on his videogames but he's willing to lend a helping hand if needed. He gets along with Alexy but doesn't share his passion for clothes and shopping.
- Art Evolution: Redesigned at the same time as Alexy, though unlike Alexy he also received a different outfit. His original design◊ and the current one.◊
- Berserk Button: Taking his video games, touching his video games, preventing him in any way from accessing his video games.
- Beware the Nice Ones: His solution for the Debrah problem...let's just say that the only one who backed it up was Kentin.
- Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: His joke about The Sims game.Armin: If only the motherlode codenote existed in real life.Candy: You play Sims?Armin: Yeah I like to find out all the different ways you can kill them.
- Chivalrous Pervert: Though not as much as Dakota, Armin makes his interest in girls fairly obvious and will unashamedly make comments when the time is right.
- The Gadfly: He's as mischievous as they come and will tease/mess with anyone for the sake of a good laugh.
- Geek: He is overly-obsessed with videogames and internet, much to disdain to his brother, Alexy.
- Geeky Turn-On: Your Candy and him can have a lot of these in the form of quirky videogame references. They increase his l'o'vometer, naturally.
- Give Geeks a Chance: He pretty much could be the embodiment of this trope for the not so geeky players (yes, they do exist).
- Hollywood Nerd: As his halloween special 2012 image shows. The boy sure works out for a hardcore gamer who spends hours surfing the internet!
- Informed Attribute: His character description page describes him as shy, but if he is, he doesn't really show it around your candy, even before befriending her.
- Nerds Are Sexy: Literally!
- Lovable Nerd: Very much.
- Playful Hacker: It's not just videogames he's good with. this bites him in the ass
- One of Us: Part of the fun with talking to Armin is figuring out all of his videogame references.
- Satellite Love Interest: In the beginning he was rather one note, especially compared to some of the other love interests. Ten episodes after his introduction and he was still only defined by his love of videogames, his hatred of outdoors, and your candy. However since then he's integrated well into the school with his own relationships with each character, a more defined personality (and sense of humor), and even an expanding backstory.
- Trickster Twins: With Alexy sometimes. Most notably, they often tag team Kentin.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: Due to his playful nature, he has this with most people in the game, though special mention must be given to Kentin.
A special guy from the special 2011 Halloween episode. Dimitri is an old guy but he looks quite young. This is because he is all but stated to be a vampire. He haunts the grave of his long dead love and has a pretty impressive castle close to it. Your candy reminds him a lot of her and so eventually you can pull him away for a minute and get him to talk to you. He is only available in this special episode, not the main story.
- Ascended Extra: Kinda. He used to be the star of the (optional) 2011 Halloween episode with no impact or even mention in the main story. But now he's made a (sort of) reappearance in episode 19 and currently the one to help introduce you to the game instead of Boris.
- Friendly Neighborhood Vampire: Although creepy, he doesn't drink human blood and he isn't mean.
- Our Monsters Are Different: In a game about dating boys, this kind of things were bound to happen... He's certainly different from the usual conception of a vampire.
- The Lost Lenore: His dead love. The entire episode sort of revolves around her.
- Not Using the V-Word: He doesn't ever refer to himself as a vampire.
Iris's younger brother. Since he's 9 years old, he neither attends Sweet Amoris nor is dateable, but he does pop up occasionally to talk to your Candy.
- Adorably Precocious Child
- Child Prodigy
- Precocious Crush: According to the third artbook, he has a crush on the teenage player character. He realizes she seems to be interested in a guy already, though, not to mention that he's too young for her.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: Smart and thoughtful, as opposed to Iris, who is very sweet but not known for her intelligence. Though unusually for this trope, they seem to get along fairly well.
- Wise Beyond Their Years: He immediately figures out you and your boyfriend are on a date in episode 26, right after meeting you for the first time, which Iris, despite having known you nearly two years and the boy possibly even longer, seemed oblivious to.
Introduced in episode 32. An underclassman who is also undateable, as he is dating Cspucine.
GirlsThe girls of Sweet Amoris High. Like the guys they have a meter that tells you how much they like you (even Amber). But none of them are dateable so they are called friendship o'meters instead.
The mean girl of the school. From the very first meeting she makes it clear she does not like your candy and there is little you can do to get her to change her mind. She is who she is and she isn't afraid to show it, unless acting innocent will give her the advantage. Still despite her underhanded, cheating, and just plain mean tendencies, there are hints that she's not totally a bad person. Her two best friends are Charlottes and Li and Capucine desperately wants to be on her good side. She is the younger twin sister of Nathaniel and they have a pretty up and down relationship. She cannot stand your Candy and Kentin and she has a crush on Castiel (and Dajan. And briefly Kentin).
- Alpha Bitch
- Art Evolution: The only one of the girls to be redesigned (discounting Li and Charlotte. since they didn't have their own sprites until later and didn't receive any outfit changes):
- Attention Whore
- Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Her and Nathaniel. Though she is willing to throw him under a bus when he crosses her there are moments where it is clear she does care and worry about him.
- Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted in episode 9 where you can see the results of her allergy to nuts.
- Played straight in episode 28, where after her Traumatic Haircut delivered by Priya, she receives an updated look which just as attractive as the original. Unfortunately, this does nothing to combat her ego.
- Beauty Mark: Near her left eye.
- Berserk Button: Talking to Nathaniel, bothering Nathaniel, showing interest in Nathaniel. In fact, it upsets her MORE if you are close to Nathaniel than if you are close to Castiel.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: Obviously she doesn't like you getting close to Castiel. However she never talks to him about it, just takes it out on you. Also see Berserk Button for a platonic version.
- Dumb Blonde: Not necessarily an idiot but she cheats in school and your candy certainly has a few insults to her intelligence handy.
- Even Evil Has Standards: The introduction of Debrah. For once, Amber's hate is warranted.
- Fashion Model: Allegedly, she's a model. It doesn't seem like her career's going well, though, judging by the number of rejection letters she gets. Her mother was a model, too.
- He's Back: And not in a good way. The first thing she does in episode 24 is get your candy detention by stealing (ripping apart) your homework assignment. What's worse is she later on tries to lie about to Nathaniel (who thankfully doesn't believe her at all).
- Hidden Depths: There are small but noticeable hints that there are more facets to her personality than the default Alpha Bitch.
- It's All About Me: she is convinced Nathaniel's duty as the student body president is to let her get away with everything, calling her out makes him unworthy of the position. If you dare to defend yourself, you are the bad guy, obviously.
- Kick the Dog: In early episodes, she doesn't care at all about how her actions will affect Nathaniel, and often uses her position as her parent's favorite to manipulate him (to be fair, she doesn't know that he is being abused.) During Castiel's arc, she let your candy, who was already being ostracized by everyone, take the blame for her prank on Deborah. Later on, in episode 32, she mocks Capucine to the point of tears about dating a nerdy 15-year-old, for which your candy thinks that even though Capucine isn't the nicest person, it's horrible for Amber to take advantage of her low self esteem, especially considering Amber is the only person Capucine is loyal to.
- My Brother Is Off Limits!
- Parental Favoritism: Nathaniel says she's a daddy's girl but it appears their mom also prefers her.
- Secret Keeper: Subverted. She PRETENDED to know what was going on at her house to get a new cellphone from you. In truth she had NO idea what was going on.
- Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Your candy. Also Debrah, the one person she hates more than you.
- Smug Snake: She seems to overestimate her power and popularity.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Like Lysander's name, the ending is spelled differently from version to version.
- Spoiled Brat: Not only are her parents wealthy, but they let her get away with essentially whatever she wants, as opposed to poor Nathaniel.
- Sticky Fingers: Steals your money, steals Kentin's money, steals Dajan's necklace, steals Melody's snacks, steals your snacks, steals a stamp...
- Traumatic Haircut: Delivered to her by Priya. It's a case of Laser-Guided Karma, though, because Amber was planning to cut Priya's hair with the very same scissors.
- Unlucky Childhood Friend: She fell for Castiel when he fixed her doll when they were children. They aren't even friends now if they ever were before.
- Used to Be A Sweet Kid: As a result of being bullied by her brother and being spoiled for it by her parents, came out as the Amber we all know and love...not.
- Villainous Breakdown: She does NOT take learning that Nathaniel is being abused well. Once she finds out she's in her 'sad animation' for the rest of the episode.
Li and Charlotte
Amber's two best friends they are almost always right behind her in anything (literally). Neither of them are very nice to you the rare times you come across them by themselves either. Li is the Asian and Charlotte is the brunette.
- Asian Airhead: Li is type 1.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Charlotte.
- Getting Crap Past the Radar: When talking about Debrah, Charlotte makes an interesting prediction about what she does at night.
- Jerk Ass: The both of them are still mean to you even when Amber isn't around.
- Of course, while Li is just vapid and rude, Charlotte does some pretty... messed up things: upon finding out Iris was briefly dating her boyfriend (note Iris had NO idea he was involved, let alone with who) her reaction is to save sexy pictures Iris sent him and use them to blackmail her into ruining her own life.
- Morality Pet: Amber. Regardless of how they treat your candy, it can't be denied that they are REALLY good friends for Amber. Their nicest moments have to do with helping her no matter what.
- Put on a Bus: As of episode 36, Charlotte has transferred to another school, likely as a result of you and your boyfriend threatening her.
- Undying Loyalty: To Amber.
- Though after Charlotte leaves, Li seems to be arguing with Amber more and more and seems in general more fed up with her than ever.
The first friendly girl you meet and your first friend. Iris is a ditzy but kind girl who always manages to cheer you up whenever Amber's words get you down. She has a younger brother who plays guitar and she has quite a few guitar skills herself.
- Book Dumb: She's not a very good student, especially in History and Math, but she tries.
- Break the Cutie: In episodes 34 and 35.
- Demoted to Extra: Believe it or not, she used to be the one your candy went to whenever she had a problem.
- Subverted later on. She becomes more prominent again around episode 32, and episode 34 is all about her. After that she still receives more appearances.
- Disappeared Dad: Her parents are divorced, and she and her brother live with their mom. Judging by the fact that he doesn't bother to show up to the play like the rest of the parents, it can be assumed he's not really in the picture. According to Word of God, Iris has such a close relationship with her mother that she feels no need to visit her father.
- The Ditz
- Et Tu, Brute?: Sided with Debrah.
- Odd Friendship: She gets along really well with Castiel, and the two are hinted to be close. During Episode 9, he's standoffish to your Candy, and will refuse to do activities like swimming if she suggests it. However, when Iris suggests doing the same activity, he agrees and actually plays together with her. She also noticeably doesn't treat Castiel like a rebel or a bad boy as how he's projected, and legitimately thinks of him as her friend, and doesn't seem to notice he treats people differently to her.Iris: Try asking him nicely! He's friendly!
The second friendly girl you meet. This white-haired beauty is a fellow classmate and the loving girlfriend of the clothes shop owner Leigh. She is an energetic girl with a mischievous side to her. But she can't stand injustice and will never choose a side without finding out all the facts (something she is really good at doing). She is close to Lysander in a sisterly way and even if your candy steals Leigh from her, she does have her back.
- The Ace: Beautiful, talented, and the go-to-girl when you need help whether that help be getting a picture of a guy you like or revenge schemes.
- Art Evolution: Check out the difference.◊
- Berserk Button: Well she really, really likes her boyfriend Leigh you know? So flirting with him? Not a good idea...
- Big Eater: During Episode 28, she orders a rib steak, fries and blue cheese sauce. This is in contrast to her boyfriend, Leigh, who only eats a salad.
- Chekhov's Skill: Episode 16 her sneaky skills really come in handy for you. She actually proves she's better than Peggy at getting information.
- Crash-Into Hello: How you meet her.
- Et Tu, Brute?: Notably averted. Rosalya is the only girl on your side after what Debrah did (Amber is on her own side). And not only that, she comes up with your revenge plan.
- Drill Sergeant Nasty: Let it be known that Rosalya takes her work as a fashion designer very seriously.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: She is quite hotheaded and has no issue at all sharing her opinion when angered, whatever it may be. To be fair, she cools down just as fast.
- Hypocritical Humor: Calls out Castiel for not knowing what Lysander's parents look like despite being Lysander's best friend only for Castiel to call her out for dating Leigh and still not knowing what their parents look like.
- Informed Attractiveness: Judging by your candy's thoughts, Rosalya is the most beautiful girl in school.
- Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Is the energetic girl to both Lysander AND Leigh. Moreso Lysander though because he appears more.
- Spoiled Brat: In the play arc she is hired to make the costumes and ends up spending WAY over-budget. She and her mother outright state that, that is a common occurrence. She also can be a bit demanding and childish when it comes to her work. However she doesn't mean to be and when her behavior is pointed out she'll quickly apologize and make-up for it.
- Stalker with a Crush: Not her, but she appeals to these types of girls. She used to take pictures of guys while they were unaware and sell them to girls who liked them.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Stealing Leigh away in episode 6 gets you a stern talking to in episode 7.
The next girl you meet. Peggy is a reporter for the school newspaper and it's easy to see why she got the job. She'll do anything to get the next greatest story and will constantly bother you (and everyone else) for the juicy details. Though not a bad person, Peggy does have a tendency to let her job blind her from doing what's right. Ultimately though, she's pretty harmless.
- Aesop Amnesia: In the same episode no less! So much for learning to get ALL the facts before jumping to conclusions and not just relying on what she's overheard.
- Break the Haughty: In an epic manner, Peggy learns the consequences of snooping around.
- Foil: Both she and your candy are nosy and like to get involved in other people's business. The difference is that your candy genuinely believes she's doing the right thing and helping the people involved, while Peggy doesn't really care how her own snooping affects people (at least, not until Character Development sets in.)
- Brutal Honesty: She doesn't mince words that's for sure.
- The Friend Nobody Likes: Most of the students have a distaste for her and her nosy, reporter tendencies. But that doesn't mean they want to see her upset. They also have a pretty good understanding of how passionate she is about her job which is why a group of you work together to to convince her not to quit.
- Freudian Excuse: Subverted. Related to the above, it's very clear that Peggy wasn't close to anyone in the school before you came along and your candy even notes that Peggy must be feeling lonely since she's left out of many events. However to hear Peggy tell it, she is who she is and so she cared more about her journalism than making friends. It isn't until your candy starts actively being nice to her that she realizes it's better to have friends than to be alone all the time.
- Heroic B.S.O.D.: Briefly goes through one in the beginning of episode 18. The heroic part may be argued for she claims her problem was the fact that her journalistic integrity was put into doubt and not the fact that she wrote a mean article about your candy. goes through an even bigger one in episode 25. To the point where she actually quits being a journalist.
- Hair Color Dissonance: Her black hair looks more purple.
- Kick the Dog: Even if she doesn't actually cause any trouble, she WILL step on some toes if it means getting a great headliner. Notably shows some glee at the thought of Nathaniel getting in trouble in episode 5 which cost her an invite to Melody's slumber party in episode 7.
- Happens once again in Episode 16. After overhearing and misinterpreting an interaction between Debrah and candy, she writes a mean article about your candy and publishes it without even trying to get all of the facts first. To make things worse, she is also eager to get your candy to read said article (and your candy does point out how rude she's being). When the truth comes out, this particular action causes said Heroic B.S.O.D. above.
- Depending on who you ask, in Episode 29, her snapping pictures of Melody to represent the vice of envy without her consent can be seen as this.
- It's All About Me: Even when she does do nice things there is a pretty selfish motivation behind it.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She cares more about having a story rather than what the story is. But she's not totally a bad person and after her character development you start seeing her kinder side.
- Never My Fault: Initially she blamed all of her Kick the Dog moments on her victims; typically by saying they shouldn't have done 'so-and-so' in the first place if they didn't want her to write about it. But after the Debrah debacle, it appears she has finally learned to take responsibility...For writing false articles at least.
- Not So Different: With your candy. According to her your candy is actually worse. Both like to snoop around.
- Pet the Dog: In episode 32, she goes with your candy to comfort Capucine and even promises not to write an article about Capucine's boyfriend!
- Secret Keeper: The only one who knows what the 'big thing' the staff has planned for the school...or so she claims. Subverted when it turns out that she knew nothing and only pretended to have knowledge for the sake of her reputation.
- School Newspaper Newshound
- Took a Level in Kindness: Thanks to The Power of Friendship (somewhat), Peggy is noticably much nicer and more considerate in the latest episodes. this is best exemplified by her refusal to write about Capucine's boyfriend when she saw how upset the girl was whereas before, she wouldn't have cared at all what Capucine thought.
- Trauma Conga Line: Episodes 17 to 25 is just nothing but bad luck for Peggy.
- What the Hell, Hero?: She quite bluntly tells your candy what she thinks of her when she asks for Peggy's help to read Nathaniel's school file.
A delegate for her class, Melody can usually be found in the student council room or anywhere where Nathaniel is. She's a nice, smart girl who is friendly to your candy from the moment they meet, even inviting you to her slumber party. However one thing that is also notable about her is that she very, very, very much likes Nathaniel. And even though she's already been rejected it appears she still hold hope that one day he'll return her feelings.
- Berserker Tears: If you choose Nathaniel, when you tell her that the two of you are dating she angrily denies that it's true all the while tears are in her eyes.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: To almost Yandere like levels. She starts off by becoming incredibly passive-aggressive almost every time she sees you near Nathaniel before becoming almost delusional. For example, as noted below, she makes wild accusations that are plainly not true if it means convincing herself you are not right for Nathaniel. Reaches its boiling point if you choose Nathaniel and she finds out you two are dating. She absolutely refuses to believe it's true at first.
- Dogged Nice Girl: She is like the girl!Kentin to Nathaniel. She'll do anything for him even though it doesn't really earn her any brownie points. It doesn't help that he has her convinced that he's not looking for a girlfriend (and this is a dating game so do the math).
- Et Tu, Brute?: Takes Debrah's side.
- Hair Decorations: Wears two blue pins in her hair.
- Hopeless Suitor: To date Nathaniel has not shown any interest whatsoever in Melody (beyond friendship at least). And if you are going for Nathaniel this becomes even more obvious.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Most of the time she's a very sweet girl, but if she gets the vaguest hint of you showing interest in Nathaniel, she grows very distant and cold (at one point even accusing your candy of being just like Amber, despite the fact that that's plainly not true.) Once she finds out you and Nathaniel are officially dating, she first refuses to believe it's true and screams at you, then even after accepting it is noticeably short to you.
A punkish girl who hates math, hates her language, and is easily annoyed when things don't go right. Still she's a friendly, dependable girl who comes through when you need her. She appears to live an exciting life outside of school that your candy is curious about, but she can't stand drama and prefers to stay out of it. Kim is the most easygoing and laidback of all the characters but make her mad and she can whip out some pretty sharp insults.
- Black Best Friend: Though she is this moreso to Violette than to your candy.
- Cool Big Sister: She acts this way towards your Candy once they get to be friends, despite not actually being older than her.
- Et Tu, Brute?
- The Complainer Is Always Wrong: In episode 11 when Kim complains about how hard the race is your candy tells her to stop complaining and enjoy the race. Later on your candy starts complaining about the difficulty as well to whoever her partner is and HE has to tell her to shut up.
- Odd Friendship: She's rather extroverted and brash, but her best friend is Violette. Apparently it's because both of them are interested in art.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Is not very open about herself but is by no means a mean person... unless she doesn't like you (as Amber finds out).
- Tomboy: Nothing she wears even amounts to being girly.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Her friendship with Violette.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A, with the shorts variation.
A shy, purple-haired artsy girl. Violette is pretty quiet and mostly keeps to herself in the garden. It is clear that she suffers from low-self-esteem or at the very least some insecurity issues. However she is nice and the more she talks to your candy, the more she comes out of her shell. She is very talented in drawing and sewing and almost always carries around an art board. She also always brings a stuffed animal to school, something she's not very proud of.
- Ambiguous Disorder: She's painfully shy and nervous, and has very low self confidence. It seems like she suffers social anxiety and possibly depression, but this is never stated.
- Beware the Quiet Ones: When Capucine badmouths your Candy in front of her by saying she's holding her back, Violette's response is to shout at Capucine that your Candy is her friend. Candy even notes that she's surprised at Violette's reaction, though is also touched.
- Character Development: She gets out of her shell more the more your candy interacts with her.
- Et Tu, Brute?: Takes Debrah's side.
- Meaningful Name: Aside from the fact that she's incredibly shy, she's also pretty fond of the color (even her hair is violet!)
- Missing Mom: Her mother died a few months before you met Violette. This is implied to have made her even more withdrawn than she was before.
- Odd Friendship: With Kim.
- Security Blanket: She has a stuffed animal she carries around with her for this reason.
- Shrinking Violet: It's in her name!
Not the nicest girl you'll come across. Capucine is an Amber fan through and through and will hate on your candy just as Amber does. Though she isn't nearly as ruthless as her idol (though that is NOT for lack of trying) she's still doing everything she can to replicate your relationship with Amber.
- Dub Name Change: Called Karla in the Spanish version.
- Also in the brazillian version, where she's named Bia.
- The Friend Nobody Likes: Being mainly just a hanger-on to Amber, she's not really close to the large group of friends consisting of your classmates (sans Amber's group), but she still hangs out with them.
- Hair Decorations: Wears a pink headband to match her dress.
- Hidden Depths: She's actually very knowledgeable about art. Also, she is the only girl at the high school, besides your candy and Rosalya, to be in a committed relationship.
- I Just Want to Have Friends: This is the main reason she acts like such a jerk. Really, she wants to be liked, but she doesn't know how to do this and goes about it the completely wrong way, imitating Amber (though it's questionable if Amber really is that popular, since no one at the school besides her friends really seem fond of her.)
- Smug Snake: She tries, but she isn't NEARLY as bad as Amber or even Debrah. Your candy doesn't even bother getting upset when she runs into Capucine and at worst just brushes her off.
A middle-schooler who is the self-proclaimed number 1 Lysander fan. She LOOOOOOVES Lysander so if he likes you she SOOOOOOOO does not love you. Still Nina is a cheerful and energetic girl who really just wants to help...her idol. She introduces herself to you as Lysandra and even gives you a 'Team Lysander' t-shirt (to match your Team Castiel and Team Nathaniel shirts). You can join her one-person fanclub for Lysander and stay or she can kick you out if Lysander doesn't let her hug him.
- Clingy Jealous Girl
- Cute and Psycho: Is genuinely cute and mostly upbeat and happy. But if you like Lysander and he likes you back, then a much more scary side of her comes out. Her angry design strikes fear into the heart of your candy.
- Elegant Gothic Lolita
- Girlish Pigtails
- Hopeless Suitor: Even when Lysander doesn't like you that much he still doesn't take Nina's interest in him seriously. He assumes she'll just grow out of it.
- Multicolored Hair: Her hair has pink ombre, probably in an attempt to mimic Lysander's hair.
- Precocious Crush: Not too bad. She's in middle school crushing on a high schooler.
- Stalker with a Crush: Of Lysander. But he doesn't seem to mind.
- This Means War!: Literally says the words if you hug up on Lysander in episode 17.
An interesting (to say the least) person met in episode 14 but fully introduced in episode 15. She is Castiel's ex-girlfriend who came back for a visit, but it is clear she has some ulterior motives. She used to go to Sweet Amoris before you showed up. As a result, everyone thinks she's their best friend and she certainly acts the part. However beneath the sweet and innocent act lies a true...
- Attention Whore
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Say what you want about Amber at least she is upfront about her true feelings.
- Bait the Dog: Debrah offers a lot of good things. Help with school work, compliments and confidence boosters, etc. Then she offers Castiel a position in her band as a guitarist...only to have Rosalya heavily imply (and in episode 17 Debrah herself confirms) that it's only because she thinks Castiel will let her have all of the spotlight. If you think that's bad wait until you see what she offered Nathaniel.
- Break the Haughty: Had to happen given the type of game this is.
- Crocodile Tears: She is very good at this.
- Hoist By Her Own Petard: Several things lead to her downfall. 1) Pissing off the student body president. 2) Her fame-hungry nature. And 3) She just HAS to brag to your candy about what's she's done and later on her true intentions. The second time she starts bragging said student body president comes into play.
- Manipulative Bitch: She tells you the story of her horrendous deeds because she knows you can't do anything about it. She has almost everyone in the school wrapped around her finger and the few who actually know how she really is are in the same boat as you. And yes. She rubs this fact in your face.
- Slut-Shaming: The game itself does this to her.
- Small Name, Big Ego: Zigzagged. In the beginning Melody, Iris, and even Castiel praised her singing talents. However when she made it big her sales didn't do so well and it's heavily implied that the true music talent in her band belonged to Castiel. This is why her manager was okay with dropping her when she said she thinks she found a better deal.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Called "Deborah" in the American English version, and simply "Debbie" in the British English version.
- Your Cheating Heart: Flirted with Nathaniel while she was still with Castiel. Also did this to her bandmates.
- Villain Ball: What ultimately leads to her downfall. If she just kept her trap shut...
- Villain with Good Publicity
An friend from your candy's old school. Lucy is sweet, pretty, and appears to be very popular with the boys. Not that she's complaining. You meet her at the mall doing what she does best—scoping the field for a new boyfriend. At first she sets her sights on Dake but when your candy makes the mistake of telling Lucy about the boys from Sweet Amoris, and Lucy visits with some very nice results, it becomes clear that Sweet Amoris will be getting a new student soon.
- Aborted Arc: Subverted. A couple of scenes in episodes 19 and 20 imply that she's going to transfer to Sweet Amoris soon. However she disappears for several episodes afterwards, leading many to believe her role in the story was taken by Priya instead. She then reappears in episodes 29 and 30, and you talk to her on the phone in the next few episodes several times, in ways that imply some conflict involving her. She finally appears again in episode 37, where she tells you her parents have divorced and she's upset because her mother keeps bringing home different men. Though she tells you she's solved the conflict within the episode, it seems she's got her own involvement in the plot.
- The Casanova: Rare female version and her most prominent character trait to date. When you meet her she rattles off a list of boys who she dated once Candy left and assumes a week of being single is a tragedy. She also sneaks into your school to flirt with every guy you know.
- Drama Queen: When it comes to her love life at least. Even if she never gets with the guy (who she JUST met), Lucy will moan and groan about having a broken heart and how tragic it is that a great and powerful love ended so soon. She'll immediately cheer up once she sees another cute, single guy.
- Dub Name Change: Her original French name is Laeti.
- Foil: To your candy and possibly Rosalya. Unlike Rosalya, who has settled into a long-term relationship with Leigh, and Candy, who either cannot decide which boy to like or is too shy to approach the one she does, Lucy goes through boys like they're this year's birthday gifts.
- Genius Ditz: She knows how to talk to boys and given her long dating history her tactic has been working extremely well for her.
- Hair Color Dissonance: Her hair is black but is coloured in dark blue shades.
- Hair Decorations: Wears a ton of multicoloured pins in her hair.
- Innocently Insensitive: Her teasing of Kentin, mainly because he still has somewhat fragile self esteem which isn't immediately evident.
- Kick the Dog: Her teasing Kentin in episode 20 comes across as mean-spirited. So much so that even your Candy is appalled and scolds her afterwards. Lucy promises to apologize for it.
- Love at First Sight: She falls in love with every cute guy she sees.
- Nice Girl: She actually genuinely gets along well with your Candy. In fact if you tell her you like Dake she'll immediately back off...Of course if you ask Kentin he'll tell a different story.
- Wingding Eyes: The shines in her eyes turn into hearts when she sees a cute boy.
A character who is first mentioned in episode 26 and appears for the first time in episode 27. She's a transfer student who's parents travel a lot, and therefore she has been to several schools all over the world. Upon arrival she immediately becomes the center of attention... And apparently envy from Candy.
- The Ace: She's smart and liked by pretty much everyone, so it's easy to see her as this. Her only flaw is that she's not good at art.
- Beware the Nice Ones: She's a really kind girl, and easy to talk to, however if you mess with her, you'd better watch your back. Amber learned the hard way. To explain what happened, she tried to cut Priya's hair, but it backfired with Priya swiftly grabbing the scissors and cutting Amber's hair. Continuing on from that, despite Amber talking smack at her, Priya can get her to shake.Priya (whispers): Really, your new haircut. It's quite nice.Amber: I know...t-thanks.Priya: Are you sure you don't want it any shorter?Candy: She took out her scissors from her pencil case.Amber: S-stop, or I'll scream!Priya: Calm down...don't cry wolf when you don't need to, otherwise no-one will believe you when you really need help.Candy: Oooh...Amber is really going to regret having picked on Priya.
- Bi the Way: Likes both sexes and has dated girls in the past.
- Bollywood Nerd: Downplayed. She's very smart and a talented student, but she's also an accomplished writer, very likeable and popular, and gorgeous.
- Hidden Depths: Despite her charismatic and charming demeanor, she was apparently bullied before she moved to Sweet Amoris.
- Informed Attractiveness: She's described as strikingly pretty, but she's drawn in the same style as everyone else.
- Nice Girl: Is one of the nicest characters yet.
The adults of your town and Sweet Amoris. They have a more practical use in that well, they aren't dateable (baring one exception) but they have a huge impact on your story line. Like the students they have friendship o'meters but there's really only one who's meter you affect.
ChinomikoA guide that appears in the beginning of almost every episode. She is also the first person you see when you start playing. Chinomiko is a helpful woman who tells you how and episode goes.
- Author Avatar: She is an in-game representation of the artist for the the game, Chinomiko.
- Info Dump: Whenever you see her (at the beginning of some episodes) she explains everything you need to know about the episode.
BorisThe second person you meet, Boris is a fun loving and physically active guy. He is first introduced to help the player understand the talking-to-others mechanism and eventually lands a permanent role as Sweet Amoris' gym teacher. He's also Dake's uncle.
- Ascended Extra: Went from introducing the players to the conversation mechanic to being a recurring character as the gym teacher. He's even related to one of the bachelors.
- Camp Straight: He acts rather flamboyant and always carries around a rose, but before he became the gym teacher and was only used in the tutorial, he would flirt with you.
- Keet: He may not look the part but he certainly does act it.
- Only Sane Man: Between the principal, Mr. Farazie and Ms. Delanay, he comes across as this.
The PrincipalThe principal of Sweet Amoris High. The Principal is a woman who wants what's best for the school.
- Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Her surname is "Shermansky", but no one actually uses it to refer to her.
- Mood-Swinger: Worse than Castiel.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: She has extreme mood swings and sometimes the school allows things most kids in RL could only dream of happening (such as letting school out early for a simple reason) but she does care about doing what's best for the school and is open to new ideas so long as money isn't an issue.
Mr. FaraizeThe soft-spoken, unconfident teacher of Sweet Amoris.
- Extreme Doormat: Oh yeah.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Played with. He clearly cares about the students and wants to make them happy. Trouble is, he has a very hard time disciplining them and is often drowned out or ignored by the more talkative students. So even if they do like him, not many of the students actually respect him.
- Unstoppable Rage: As close as he can get anyway. In one episode it is implied the principal had some kind of talk with him. Afterwards he's incredibly harsh and strict which surprises your candy as well as the others who were used to getting away with so much.
Ms. DelanayThe new science teacher introduced in episode 25. The complete opposite of Mr. Farazie, this teacher is a tough, no-nonsense authority figure. Better be careful what you say around her.
- Drill Sergeant Nasty
- Kick the Dog: She has no problem calling students stupid not only to their face, but in front of the entire class.
- The Scrappy: In universe. No one, not even teacher's pets Nathaniel and Melody like her.
- Stern Teacher: After her first appearance, where she managed to cause a lab safety accident on her second day of teaching, she seems to have cooled down and tries to be fair (for example, correcting the grade on Violette's homework when she realizes that she made a grading error.)
Patrick SavinAn Australian art teacher who comes to the school for the Art Day event in episodes 29 and 30. In Episode 30, he also says that he is joining the Sweet Amoris staff as the new art teacher.
- Cool Teacher
- Dub Name Change: His original French name was Pierrick.
- First-Name Basis: He insists that he be referred to as Patrick and not Mr. Savin.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: He's probably the most responsible and Genre Savvy of the staff. For starters, he's the only one of them who sees Amber for what she really is.
LeighLeigh is Lysander's older brother and the owner of the clothing shop. He is unique in that it is possible for you to date him in one episode if you can manage to keep him and his girlfriend Rosalya apart. Alas it is only for that episode for he loves his girlfriend very much and once they patch things up he is off the market. Be aware that stealing Leigh from Rosalya does not earn you any points with Lysander.
- Aloof Older Brother: Although he can get away with it because Lysander himself is pretty aloof too. Rosalya however, does not approve.
- Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Episode 6 is all about Rosalya believing he doesn't care about her as much as she does him. You can chose to help prove this trope to them or take Leigh for yourself.
- A Day in the Limelight: Episode 6.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Unlike Lysander, his aloofness has more to do with shyness and Lysander actually worries about him when Rosalya wants to use him in a revenge plot. But Leigh not only does a perfect job, he admits he willingly went along because he felt Deborah deserved it.
- Big Brother Instinct: According to his and Lysander's mother, he's always been there for Lysander. Unfortunately the fact that he's dating Rosalya, without knowing Lysander's feelings for her, leads him to accidentally end up causing some pain for Lysander in episode 31.
- Farmboy: Like Lysander, he grew up with their parents in the countryside.
- The Fashionista
- Heroic B.S.O.D.: Mostly offscreen, but during Lysander's arc. Considering what the guy is going through, it's not surprising.
- Lady Not-Appearing-in-This-Game: Rare male example (since this game is catered towards teenage girls.) In advertisements for the game, he's shown with the main dateable cast. In reality, he's a supporting character who you can date in one episode total.
- Only One Name: One of the only aversions (though Lysander and his parents probably share his surname.) His full name is Leigh Sinclair Ainsworth.
- Promoted To Parent: He takes care of Lysander because neither want to live in the country.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: He's very distant, thanks to his shyness and inability to express his emotions, but inside he's a sweet person who wants the best for those he cares about, which you can occasionally catch a glimpse of.
- Younger Than They Look: He's actually only 19 (which explains why he's able to run his own shop and support himself and Lysander, while at the same time no one questions that he's dating high-school aged Rosalya), but your candy assumes he is older (though this may have less to do with his physical looks and more to do with the way he expresses himself.)
ParentsThe parents (and aunt!) of the main cast. Candy's aunt has been popping up since episode one but we finally meet her parents in episode 20 and the rest of the crew's parents' an episode later. We've only been introduced to them all now, but they have enough character for us to understand why their darling children grew up to be the classmates we now know and love.
- Abusive Parents: Heavily implied with Nathaniel and Amber's parents moreso now than ever before, especially their dad. He's apparently a very big fan of using discipline. Confirmed in episode 23, though he only abuses Nathaniel.
- Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Naturally almost all of your friends are found avoiding their parents during the open house. Special mention must be made for Kentin's mom, Castiel's mom, and your mom and aunt (though only in private).
- Ambiguously Brown: Castiel's mom.
- Boisterous Bruiser: Castiel's mom. We now know where he gets his readiness to throw down from.
- Cloud Cuckoolander: Your aunt. She wanders around your high school (and sometimes even your friends' houses!) dressed like a fairy in order to give you gifts. Considering how unfazed your parents seem when they find out about this habit, one can only assume they're used to this type of behaviour.
- Dark-Skinned Redhead: Castiel's mom.
- Death Glare: Your candy calls it 'X-ray eyes' but your dad gives this to Armin and Kentin.
- Doting Parents: Nathaniel and Amber's parents... towards Amber, that is.
- Dye Hard: Castiel's mom dyed her hair red to be like her son.
- Fiery Redhead: Castiel's mother, just like her son. This is pretty amusing considering neither of them are natural redheads. Your own mother shows a bit of this trait, but it's mostly in comparison to your rather laid back father.
- Freudian Excuse: Nathanial's father was sabotaged at his job and is now stuck in a basic position despite previously being considered for the vice president position (which is apparently causing financial issues as well). Because the person who sabotaged him was a young guy fresh out of college, Nathaniel assumes he is projecting his anger at that man onto Nathaniel. However your candy correctly points out that while that is indeed tragic, it does not excuse or even justify his actions.
- Happily Adopted: Armin and Alexy's birth parents died in a car crash. Their adopted parents are shown to be fun-loving people who connect very easily with their adopted sons.
- Jerk Ass: Nathaniel's parents. His father in particular made many of the other parents uncomfortable and almost everyone you meet says that they "feel sorry for their son". Curiously, no mention is made of feeling sorry for Amber.
- Kentin's father. Maybe sending Kentin to military school was Tough Love, but hanging up on his crying, terrified son while he was alone dealing with bullies in a strange place just seems like an unnecessary cruelty. No wonder Kentin latched on to Evan so quickly.
- Mum Looks Like a Sister: Your candy mistakes Kentin's mom for a child and Kentin's sister at that before she mentions 'finding her husband'.
- Noodle People: Nathaniel's mother is drawn this way. Apparently, she used to be a model (and depending on your dialogue choices, may tell you to be careful of what you eat so you don't become obese.)
- Papa Wolf: Kentin's father is seen twice looking for Amber. And just hearing his tone has your candy and Armin and Alexy's parents feeling sorry for her fate.
- Inverted with Nathaniel's father. He immediately jumps to the conclusion that Nathaniel is at fault no matter what (one time, he did so even when Castiel was clearly the instigator).
- Parents as People: Your candy's parents, who genuinely try to be supportive, but their tendency to give her some space but not always taking into account her actual needs ends up clashing with her anxious tendencies at the wrong moments, generally leading to her getting into more problematic situations than she was before. It's clear they don't mean to stifle her, though, and they do apologize when they realize they were in the wrong.
- Castiel's parents love and care about him, but since both of their jobs require them being away much of the time, they inadvertently put a distance between themselves and him and given him mild abandonment issues.
- Nina's mom has sunk into a depression after the loss of her husband (Nina's dad). Unfortunately she is unable to give Nina the care and attention that she needs because of it which is why Nina is so often found wandering by herself and has an obsession with Lysander.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Your parents. They will punish your candy if she does something clearly wrong, but it's clear they're willing to listen most of the time and be flexible. One good example is how your dad apologizes to your boyfriend for yelling at him for something YOU did wrong, and then tells your candy that they aren't forbidden from seeing each other like you'd thought, and how your parents allow you to see Lysander in the hospital despite being grounded in episode 31.
- Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Castiel's parents.
- Shared Family Quirks: Lysander's parents seem to be very different from their children, but their heads are just as far in the clouds as Lysander's (though Leigh seems to lack this trait.)
- Peggy's parents apparently disrespect people's privacy like Peggy. Also, her mom is a food critic and is said to occasionally give Peggy advice on how to write her articles.
- Played for Laughs with you and your parents; when they join you at school, they seem to spend just as much time wandering around looking for things/people as you do. Your candy even notes that it must run in the family, and your dad wonders aloud if there are even teachers in your school!
- Shout-Out: Kentin's father is based off Guile.
- Kim's parents are based off of and named after the actors of Cédric and Marion from Scènes de Ménage.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Kentin's mother is friendly towards everyone... except Nathaniel and Amber's parents, who she treats with utter disdain knowing what Amber did to her son.
- Uncanny Family Resemblance: Kentin and his mom for sure. She looks almost exactly like how he did when he was Ken, right down to the glasses and the haircut.
- Completely and utterly averted with Lysander (and Leigh) and their parents.
- Also averted with Armin and Alexy for a special reason.
EvanA character introduced in episode 37. He is the biological older brother of the twins and a friend of Kentin's from military school.
- Big Brother Mentor: Deconstructed with Kentin. While he acts how you might expect a Big Brother Mentor to act, his lessons aren't necessarily positive. Also subverted with Armin and Alexy, his biological brothers. They want to look up to him but are put off by his more questionable behavior.
- Foil: Possibly to Dake. When Dake learns you are in a relationship, he backs off almost immediately. Evan doesn't seem to find this a deterrent, though, even if the girl is visibly uncomfortable and yells at him- such as when he tries to kiss Rosalya literally the moment he meets her. It hardly goes well, though at least he seems a bit surprised and regretful of his own begavior.
- Handsome Lech: He's pretty good looking- your candy even has a sex dream about him. He's also pretty flirty... and pushy.
- Jerkass Fašade: His overly tough behavior is a result of trauma, especially an incident where he was (possibly sexually) assaulted. He figures no one will mess with him if they're afraid of him.
- Rape as Backstory: Heavily implied. Kentin says "some guys came after him" and breaks down in tears while trying to explain why Evan is the way he is.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: He's pretty different from the twins. Armin and Alexy are different within themselves, but neither have Evan's issues with toxic masculinity... or any of his other issues, for that matter. Justified in that the twins were babies when their parents died and were adopted by loving and supportive parents. Evan, on the other hand, was 10, and ended up going to a harsh military school and accumulating all sorts of trauma.
- Toxic Friend Influence: Seems to have this on Kentin. When he's around, not only is Kentin surprisingly rude and insolent, he also starts getting into fights with grown men and generally causing trouble for himself. He doesn't think of it as toxic, though- he thinks he's helping Kentin protect himself.
- Walking Spoiler: The fact that he's the twins' brother who no one was aware existed until his introduction is hard not to mention.
