Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
Conspiracy Theorist- She has a conspiracy theory on everybody. Its like there always has to be something wrong with people.
Genius Bonus- Ask her to explain how she uses her powers. She will make you cry.
Gosh Dang It to Heck!- Fun Fact: Television prior to the late 1960s never so much as permitted the use of "Hell", "Ass", or even "Damn". After that Television became more grittier, but very slowly- and even then, it was pretty much too late for Deborah to be influenced into picking up the habit. This is also why other characters cussing doesn't even so much as make her flinch.
Full-Contact Magic- Her Vector Powers. Although they're backed by science. How/Why though, is a mystery.
Innocently Insensitive- Much of her dialogue comes off as rude/mean, but that's probably because she always says what she means and lacks the skill to phrase it better. Alternatively, she could just give no hoots, but YMMV.
Logical Fallacies- In her opening post, she somehow makes a connection between her backpack and the meaning of life.
Meaningful Echo- You know that random crap she spewed way back about certain people? Yeah, what was used as a 'Crowning Moment of Funny' basically became one of the stepping points of her character development. See below.
Mind Screw- If this post doesn't cut it, nothing will. Her dreams are seriously fucked up/full of awesome. Also see above.
Obfuscating Stupidity- Sometimes you wonder if she's screwing with you or being honest. You especially wonder when you're a member of Raishon Academy and she proves (uncannily) to know a lot of weird stuff. Irony much?
Although to most people's credit, she's usually only half right. Though given her overly long dialogues, you usually have to guess where the halfway mark is.
"Someone tell me the best and easiest way to hide a body. I need to know like, right now."
Alf's best friend and Raishon's struggling Council Treasurer. Despite her rude way of speaking and her irritability, she's noticeably shy and forgives very easily when someone's done something wrong to her. Even being the Treasurer, she's not always on her best behavior, although Kappa tries to keep her under control. It's possible she can't say how she really feels without tossing a bit of annoyance into it because she ran away from home, just as Alf did.She's currently attending Raishon after having lost control of her powers that Alf wasn't even aware she had.
"I'm not very popular. In fact, I'm kind of nonexistent. But I have been kicked in the face, if that counts for anything?"
"I’m pretty sure people’s private parts don’t make noises."
Raishon's token motormouth hobo, and the future captain of the Culinary Club.Alf appears to be stupid a good majority of the time, but he really isn't, despite being homeless. He's actually just very cheery and that joy tends to make him come off as a little ditzy, but he lets people think he's stupid. Most people don't realize or ever find out that there's a lot more to him than he lets on, but that's exactly what he wants for reasons he wouldn't want to admit.His A.I., Nu, is the only other one besides Isabelle who knows about Alf's lost memories, although he won't tell him what they are, either. Because of Isabelle, Nu thinks girls have cooties and is generally shy, not wanting to interact with Alf much. Like everyone else, Nu thinks Alf is a giant loser, but he likes him regardless.
Born Unlucky - Really, every single post of his has some sort of misfortune in it.
Bystander Syndrome - If he's already helping someone out and another crappy thing is happening, he'll note it but not do anything about it.
Captain Oblivious - Was Momoko sick after sneezing and coughing a few thousand times? Also completely oblivious to innuendos unless he asks Isabelle about it and she laughs, apparently. He also has no idea when people are upset with him, or sometimes even when they're sad, unless they're crying.
Cats Are Mean - If there was a religion for this, he would be in it. He's still on the lookout for Captain Planet, though.
Character Development - Went backwards and forward with this. He talks slightly less now, and when he goes off on rambles they're shorter and somewhat make a bit more sense, but he's just a little bit more silly and emotional now.
Shout-Out - Alf actually started out entirely as a shoutout to Xanthias. His current power and him being an Augur comes from another character Shinuvi had well before Raishon. (Who, coincidentally enough, had the same faceclaim as Eli.)
Side Effects Include... - If he cries or creates illusions and hallucinations, he's at risk of losing his memories. He'll also see illusions/hallucinations himself that he didn't mean to make himself see, and he has horrible memory if it relates to any sense that doesn't involve his vision. His entire power in general is exhausting, actually.
Smitten Teenage Boy - Although he doesn't get crushes, but he cares very, very, very deeply for people he may have only met a day before. An example is him having met Anya (he actually never got her name), her being very cold because she's a ghost. Immediately, he worried if she had frostbite, gave her his jacket, and advised her to keep warm. If what came after that event was actually written, it would show Alf still worrying about her and strongly hoping she was okay.
Verbal Tic - Previously had one, but it was dropped for being pointless.
Vitriolic Best Buds - With Dio. They aren't close friends, but it still applies. (He's the nice guy of the pair. He actually gave Dio permission to punch him in the face.) Also seems to be one with Isabelle, although it's only implied.
Who Would Be Stupid Enough - Alf would be stupid enough, depending on what it is. He's only gullible around very close friends, however, because he trusts them and apparently they would never try to trick him! Really!
The stoic member of Raishon's Guardians, and possessor of the A.I. Xi. Dio, also known as Fourth, was raised and trained to become a member of the Burial Agency, an unofficially acknowledged part of the Roman Catholic Church dedicated to protecting and serving humanities' interests and the interests of the church. He was assigned to go to Raishon in order to determine whether it, and the city around it was a potential threat overall to humanity and if it needed to be cleansed, and also because he was the only member young looking enough who accepted the task.
Affably Evil - Sure he's a member of a group of cold blooded killers and has done plenty of unspeakable things. But he's unfailingly polite, will never turn down a request, or refuse to help someone in need, and at worst, will just playfully tease you about it. Then again, he's a member of a group of cold blooded killers.
Aloof Big Brother- To the other Guardians, despite being the same age or younger than some.
Church Militant - He belongs to a group within the Roman Catholic Church known as the Burial Agency, who specialize in killing threats to the church regardless of being demons, nonhumans, or regular humans considered heretics.
Deadpan Snarker - Averted. Anyone who hasn't spent enough time around him won't realize it, but Dionisio specifically comments on things in a manner similar to sarcasm combining it with his natural monotone just to mess with people.
Holier Than Thou - Subverted. Despite being raised in a Catholic Orphanage and trained as a priest he doesn't actually believe in God and only pays lipservice to Catholicism, and willfully acknowledges himself and his actions as the things a monster would do. He considers himself the 'lowest form of human', though he won't show regret for it either.
Hour of Power - When using his Death Perception he can only fight for ten minutes before his brain shuts down and reducing him to a drooling mess.
Token Evil Teammate - This guy lives solely to entertain himself, enjoys killing, and thanks to his job before coming to Raishon, has committed acts of atrocity in the name of God. But hey, he's with the Guardians now!
With Great Power Comes Great Insanity - Dio's eyes encourage bloodlust and fester a killing urge within those that hold them, not to mention the human brain wasn't meant to perceive death itself. When his eyes grow strong enough, he'll either go insane from the urge to kill, have to blind himself, or be put down due to going insane. Doesn't help that Xi actually encourages going wild, and if it wasn't for Dio's manifest stoicism he would've long succumb to it.
Villains Never Lie - He will never tell a lie, but has no problem withholding anything he knows unless asked.
Vitriolic Best Buds - He's one with Alf. They aren't close friends, and it seems even less so when you see that Dio keeps Alf around mostly for entertainment, but it still applies. (He would be the snarker.)
"You're looking at a guy who stole his parents' car at five and drove around town and knocked over mailboxes and trash cans on the curb and slammed into fire hydrants because he wanted to be badass."
A flirtatious playboy and possessor of the A.I. Omicron who has a mischievous and daring streak to him, although he has stopped flirting with every girl he sees as time went by since the first month of school. In school, he is very lazy and does not take his studies seriously at all, even ditching classes because he thinks they're pointless and he can learn the same amount of information just by going to the library (which he never does, either)
"Whoever thought it would be a good idea to gather up a whole bunch of super powered teenagers in one spot is just asking for trouble."
Ascended Fanboy - Takeshi is a fan of anime, manga and video games. Then he got an ability that with creativity and understanding, allows him to copy things he sees on TV. There were good and bad results.
Boxing Lessons for Superman - Takeshi did a lot of side work on the side so that everything he can do with his abilities won't blow up in his face. Again.
Calling Your Attacks - Takeshi has named everything he can do with his abilities, as well as things that have nothing to do with his abilities as well. Often times, it's played with. "Burning Inferno Scarlet Rhapsody Fist!!" = A kick to the shin.
Chekhov's Gunman - The npcs Takeshi interacts with have sometimes appeared long before they were actually introduced. For example, Yuuichi who was weak and toyed with by a teacher, and Julia who was a frail girl in the Haunted House arc. Both Took a Level in Badass
Chronic Hero Syndrome - Takeshi likes to help people. Sometimes too much, and in ways that are unwanted or unexpected. Like taking out an underground mafia gambling ring to help someone out of debt.
Class Change Level Reset - When he realized his Velocity Manipulation was Vector Manipulation, Takeshi had to redo all of his many experiments with this new mindset. Luckily for him, he did not have to do a Skill Point Reset
Genre Savvy - Raishon Academy is a comedy, shounen, action, drama, Rule of Cool loaded environment with many tropes occuring seemingly pulled directly out of anime and manga. Takeshi takes full advantage of that.
Girl Watching - Since nobody wants to talk to him about this, he does it by himself
Giving Up On Logic - If Takeshi is capable of using ideas from anime/games and the ideas work, then there is something very wrong with the world
I Shall Taunt You - he insulted everyone in the school during the Animal Transformation event
Mundane Utility - His abilities could potentially make him, like any other student at Raishon, a Person of Mass Destruction. Takeshi, however, uses it to play Visual Novels and Ero-Games in peace and quiet.
My Greatest Failure - At his old school, many things could have been averted if only they had all made a different choice. However, the events that occured during this period was a...
Necessary Fail - The events changed many thing about Takeshi, such as the way he acts, how he uses his abilities as well as how he develops them. All of this is in preparation for...
My Greatest Second Chance - He gets to go to another school for super powered teenagers. He's doing things different this time.
Required Secondary Powers - Everything that he does. This is why Takeshi is capable of doing so many different things with his powers; because everything he does is basically a prerequisite in order to do something else. If he doesn't take that into consideration, body parts go flying. Usually his own.
Sword Beam - Other people call it a Lightsaber. Takeshi calls it a Sword of Light.
Taught by Experience - He's a level grinder. If Takeshi wants to learn something new, he really has to practice it over and over again to truly learn it. This applies for both his powers, as well as his schoolwork.
Awesome by Analysis - Everything he learns, Takeshi does not forget. He knows the inside and out of it. He also imitates other people's abilities by adapting his own theories, and testing it over and over again with variations until he gets it right. Then he tests that over and over to learn how it can go wrong. Then that is tested over and over on different stimuli, and again to see how creatively he can use that new theory.
World Gone Mad - Takeshi's general belief is that Raishon is absolutely insane. As a result, he often does things to account for this. Some of Takeshi's friends will say, "When I first met Takeshi, I thought he was just crazy and insane. After I got to know him, I realized that it's the world that's insane for doing what Takeshi says will happen."
Raishon's Student Council Secretary. He was actually surprised that he even made it onto the council in the first place since he's a freshman and all. His tasks on the council includes maintaining a record of meetings and activities and taking roll at the start of each meeting. Since he has an excellent memory that allows him to remember things down to the last detail, he doesn't need to write anything down. He's also the possessor of the A.I. Chi. Compared to the other council members, he is mellow and laid back.
Orphan's Ordeal - because he ran off while his parents weren't looking when he was at an amusement park, he became forever separated from his parent and eventually became adopted by another family. His biological parents are still searching for him.
"Now that I've finished talking about myself, get in, losers! We're going shopping!"
Shopaholic and one of the Raishon Guardians. Suzy comes from a family of wizards/witches, but unfortunately does not have the ability to cast spells. Like Eli and Akane, Suzy is outgoing and energetic, but is a little more tame than them. Formerly, she was very bad at singing and even gained reputation for being the most terrible, tone-deaf singer at Raishon, but has since improved after receiving singing lessons from Eli. She's still not that great, however.
Student Council Vice President and Photography Club Captain. She is mature for her age in that she takes initiatives and assumes responsibility whenever she can, and even gets mistaken for being older sometimes because of it. Her manner of speaking is usually soft-spoken and polite, and she hardly yells at anyone. Her hobbies are photography, reading, and gardening.
Accidental Misnaming - no matter how many times she's tried to correct Eli, he still insists on calling her "Kaname".
A really shy girl who has and is trying to cope with her childhood selective mutism. But despite being shy, she also has an affinity for music and loves to sing as well as play the piano and violin. In fact, she feels more comfortable singing to people than actually speaking to them. She also enjoys sweets and baking.
Character Development - very slightly. At the beginning of the school year, she was so shy that she'd run away from anyone who tried to talk to her. Now she can talk to a certain handful of people. She also doesn't run away when someone approaches her anymore.
Headphones Equal Isolation - although in this case, it's earphones. She plugs her iPod earphones into her ears at the beginning of almost every class and doesn't take them out until class begins or the teacher enters the room.
"Have you ever gone mountain biking down the Road of Death in Bolivia before? Crossed over the Musou Tsuribashi bridge? No? Then let's go."
An adrenaline junkie and thrill-seeking girl who lives for the thrills and adventures that life has to offer. She has engaged in activities such as rock climbing, white river rafting, ziplining, tobogganing, bungee jumping, skywalking, and crossing over bridges such as the one mentioned in her quote above that would give acrophobics a heart attack. Despite coming from a rich family, she hardly looks it since she dresses plainly and does not care for the luxurious things in life. She's rather aloof and keeps to herself most of the time, but will interact with people when necessary.
"Of course! You’re welcome, you dirty pervert! ♥ Remember that I’ll always love you until the end of time since no one else ever will~!"
Not the cat, but Xanthe's little sister. Although she seems completely different from him, she really isn't on the inside. She's insanely blunt to those she cares about, particularly Seigi, but also extremely sweet, even to those like Laurel who aren't all that approachable. She seems to have a little bit of an ego, although she doesn't flaunt it everywhere. Like her brother, she has a love for cute things that aren't exactly cute at all, such as a goblin shark, and like Laurel, has a love for spicy food that scientists should probably check out. Beyond her occasional slips of weirdness, however, a side of her that's calm as well as a bit suspicious of others.She assisted Xanthe with the event that occurred during his two months of absence, and is now attending Raishon because of it.
Love Martyr - While she harbors no romantic feelings for him yet, it's possible she cares about Seigi more than anyone else does, probably because she feels he's the only person she can definitely trust just because he is so troubled.
Killer Rabbit - In fact, she smiles and says polite, loving things when she's pissed.
Trademark Favorite Food - She loves spicy food, more than her best friends apparently. Goes to show just how cynical she really is.
Unfit for Greatness - Only because she's unaware she even has Blood Manipulation, however. It really does bother her that people—for some reason—start to be in pain when she's helping out with something.
White Sheep of the Okurei family and formerly an expert on the research and study of abnormal abilities before his accident. Seigi is an overly perverted annoyance with a terrible voice, and manner of speaking. Despite this he is somehow friends with Eleanor and Laurel. When not actively engaging in his bad habits, he likes to build things in his spare time which never work out quite like he wants them too.
And I Must Scream - This smiling happy-go-lucky pervert is living a waking nightmare depending on how one looks at it.
Awesome by Analysis - His power allows him to instantly find out the weak points of something just by looking at it, but he can't do a thing about it due to that very same power.
Big "NO!" - What else is a pervert to do when they lost their material?
Can't Act Perverted Toward a Love Interest - Averted. Seigi has little to no qualms about being lecherous towards Eleanor, though he does get incredibly flustered if she appears to do the same. The same would go for Laurel, though if she ever started hitting on him, Seigi would say his prayers.
Can't Ever Win - Due to his power, he will never truly be happy or satisfied with his life, much less ever feel successful. To someone with his family, this is a good thing
Child Prodigy - Combined this with The Gift in his younger days. Seigi's natural affinity for science and technology is part of what made his family detest him. To a group of people who believe failure leads to success, being someone who is naturally successful without even a single mistake is utterly abhorrent.
Fridge Horror - His power. Imagine being unable to accomplish anything you want, and then trying to end it all only to find you fail at that too.
Gadgeteer Genius - Builds things in his spare time, like the two robotic rabbits Boke and Tsukkomi, they're failures though since they can't talk like he intended them too. Most of his other creations wind up the same.
Gone Horribly Wrong - His ability wasn't originally what it is now, it was an experiment he conducted on himself that made things worse.
"Now I know the answer to my question. A curse—my condition is a curse. If separation is how it is to be, the difficulties must be met as they come."
Blessed with Suck - Although his power has much potential, it has three limitations: one, it is incredibly weak in the middle of the day; two, it exhausts him physically; and three, it feeds on his emotions and makes him more miserable.
Artificial Limbs - Her left leg is more than just a chunk of metal, though. Within many hidden panels are various slots for tools and switches to turn her leg into something else, such as a chainsaw or a "wooden" peg. It's also rumoured to be able to make pancakes.
"Raishon Academy’s full of weirdos…don’t tell my sister I said that."
Momoko's older brother and Raishon's part-time office assistant. His reason for working at his sister's school is so he could earn money to help pay off his university tuition and so he could watch over his sister. Besides working at Raishon, he also works as a sound technician at his university. Up until recently, he never knew that he had powers of his own like Momoko does. He's very protective of both his sisters.As of currently, he is facing a very complicated ordeal which involves him being believed to be a robot.
The quiet and aloof mascot of Raishon, although not many know it's him inside the suit. While he tends to avoid people and looks intimidating, he's actually very polite and normally always willing to help. Not only that, but he's rather... different inside his head. It's a side most people don't see and don't want to see, but if anything cute is around, he won't be able to help but hug it with an entirely deadpan look on his face. He hasn't been wanting to open up or show people any side of him but his calm one as he believes he's someone who should be avoided and disliked. Briefly, he even considered staying at his home in the country just so people wouldn't need to deal with him.Left Raishon for two months due to... certain complications.
Afraid of Blood - He has no problem seeing blood on others, but if he sees it on himself...
Bystander Syndrome - Assumed that the screams coming from students when they realized they were chained was actually a frat party. He didn't do a thing about it, though, instead thinking of the whole thing as annoying.
House Husband - Although he's not forced to be one like Gabriel is. He just enjoys keeping himself busy. Unfortunately, he's not very good with kids, simply because he looks intimidating, then tries (and fails) to make himself out to be a nice guy.
I Can't Dance - Although except for what it says on the page, a "single scene" would turn into a whole plot arc. Have fun attempting to teach him, too.
Transhuman - Has a wonderful sense of smell, and his predictions of when something bad may (be) happen(ing) never seem to be wrong... Of course, he's not entirely sure if he's human, so those traits could be normal for whatever race he is.
What Could Have Been - Xanthias had previously been a guardian, before Raishon really existed. Considering how he's scared of injuries now, it's good that he isn't.
Why Won't You Die? - Felt this way about Saile for the extremely brief time he existed, and felt that way about Psi when he still had her around, after all his off-screen attempts to try to get her out of his head.
Now, he feels a lot more like "Why Don't I Die", however.
Don't Make Me Destroy You - When someone tries to upset him (after he's done crying, of course), or when he catches someone doing something they shouldn't, he'll advise them to stop so he doesn't need to use Aleksander on them.
Dreadful Musician - He can't sing to save his life, and he would rather use the shamisen he got for his birthday as a weapon.
Easily Forgiven - It depends. He'll hold a grudge forever if he has his other personality. Otherwise, he does forgive pretty easily if it was something he sees as trivial.
Hidden Heart of Gold - He acts as if he doesn't care whether anyone talks to him or not, but he truly is thankful, although he'll never say so. He also does some good deeds that might help students when no one notices (of course, no one notices him no matter what he does), such as leaving helpful books or notes in someone's locker so they can study it before a test.
No Social Skills - Not that anyone could tell on Tumblr, but in person he speaks slowly, stutters, says a word before or after where it really should go, avoids eye-contact, fidgets, says something weird entirely, says something rude by accident, et cetera...
"Hahaha, wow, what a funny joke! Go fuck yourself with a knife."
The younger, unfriendly younger brother of Isabelle. While he tends to give off the vibe that he despises everyone's guts, he really doesn't. His behavior is only because he's even more irritable than Isabelle. Because of his attitude, he lacks friends but one best friend, Ryouji, and another friend, Alyse. Due to this, he tends to rely on his family when he wants to have a civil conversation. Most people don't think it's possible to have a "civil conversation" with him, but with enough persistence from someone, he'll actually warm up. Sure, it'll definitely take a while for him to admit someone's important to him, but he makes that obvious to someone once they reach that level.Also a not-so-secret lover of gymnastics, technology, and gardening (in fact, it's because of Gabriel that Alf likes flowers). He attends an ordinary public school in Wales with Leilana and Ryouji.
The A.I. Holder of Psi as well as the Seventh Crowned Prince of the Avamont Empire. Claire attends as a peaceful gesture in an attempt to start more friendly relations with the other nations of the world, and because the Emperor said so. He is the President of both the Theater and Gardening Clubs, and if given half the chance, will talk you to death about himself.
Incorruptible Pure Pureness- In that he is completely and utterly true to himself and his desires, he acts with no true ill intention towards anyone and bears no ill will to anything BECAUSE he's so full of himself. In Claire's opinion no one is worthy of receiving negative OR positive emotions from him.
Large Ham- He is larger-than-life, and he'll take that as a compliment.
Raishon's resident dorm advisor. She is the one to go to when people have any questions or complaints regarding, but not limited to: lost or stolen keys, noise levels, and roommate problems. Typically, she does room inspection every two weeks to make sure the dorms are kept in order and that students aren't hiding anything that would break school rules. Although she has a bit of a lazy demeanor, she still does her job as best as she can. She's also the most flexible at Raishon by far, being able to bend over backwards all the way and touch her heels. With her extreme flexibility, she could have been a contortionist, but didn't want to because she doesn't want to perform in circuses.
Defrosting Ice Queen - if not for her brother, she would've still had her icy demeanor, although she still retains some of it.
Failed a Spot Check - she was completely oblivious to the Nargacuga destroying the walls on the second floor hallway, AND she was a few short distances away from it! Then again, she was too distracted by the mess in Harumi's room.
"If I'm right, then you better super explode! If I'm super wrong, EXPLODE ANYWAY!"
Formerly Okurei Kihara, the world's leading expert in the study of the human brain and it's potential, he became an internationally renown criminal after an incident that involved a small foreign country ruled by a dictator. Who suddenly started indoctrinating the citizens with mind control technology designed and developed by him. Unpleasant things happened. An identity switch occurred, and Kyoichi Tadamitsu became the most recent addition to Raishon's teaching staff due to being in debt to the Headmaster.
Lovable Sex Maniac - The lovable is debatable, but just like his younger brother he has a love for women's backsides and tries to get Reika to Cosplay for their classes just so he can see her in different outfits.
