Associated tropes

  • Cure Your Gays: The reason he was sent to Catholic school; other people think that this has happened to him now that he's dating Rain. Ultimately averted; it didn't stick.
  • Official Couple: with Rain, until they broke up.
  • If It's You, It's Okay: how he feels about Rain. Foreshadowed to be deconstructed.
  • The Pollyanna: Despite all the issues that happen in the story, he's almost constantly smiling.
    • Stepford Smiler: After the breakup, it's revealed that the constant cheer is (at times) a facade.
  • The Tease: Occasionally flirts with straight guys, mostly Gavin. He doesn't really seem to mind.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: His breakup with Rain has left him with a considerable amount of bitterness.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: As "Ruby".

Associated tropes

Brother Arthur Feltman

The dean of students, as well as a math teacher.

Associated tropes

Kylie Coven

Rain's neighbor who sometimes presents as male and sometimes as female.

Associated tropes

  • Ambiguous Gender: Never assigns a label to hirself although ze is sometimes referred to genderfluid by the readers and the author usually uses male pronouns for him in the commentary.
  • Bi the Way
  • Transsexual: Possibly.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: If she is a girl.
    • Biologically, she's a female. But is confused about her gender. For the purposes of this trope, it counts the same.

Kellen and Aiken

Rain's older brother and sister.

Associated tropes

Jessica Li

Aiken's former fiancee.

Associated tropes

Vincent Valverde

Jessica and Rain's therapist.

Associated tropes
  • New Old Flame: Dated Fara prior to his transition.
  • There Are No Therapists: Averted, obviously. Talk therapy is a critical part of transition, and the series doesn't shy away from showing the good and the bad of the process.
  • Transsexual: Previously known as Vivian. Rain never guessed.
