First Year Students
"I have defeated the evil inhabitants of that large bowl fortress and now.. I'm a true hero!"
A freshman new to Hyakuji who expresses a great deal of enthusiasm for virtually everything, is a deep otaku, and an equally deep pervert. Needless to say, she fits right in. Somehow she hasn't found herself swarmed with hormonal NPCs
, but Hyakuji is full of mysteries like that. She has the ability to influence and sense emotions, and is particularly drawn to feelings of romantic or intimate love.
- Chivalrous Pervert: Tends to flirt often with boys, and while she doesn't explicitly say as much, she's prone to some rather dirty thoughts. Actively seeks "attention" too.
- The Ditz: Can be a little lacking in common sense at times, possibly due to overexposure to anime. May overlap with Genre Savvy at times due to the nature of Hyakuji.
- The Empath: Capable of reading and mildly influencing emotions as her primary ability.
- Sensor Character: A helpful side-effect from her emphatic abilities, allowing her to sense others in a large radius around her using their emotions and auras as the focus points.
- Genki Girl: Big time.
- Hilarity Ensues: Is mildly attracted to Ian Vaner. Is an anime fangirl. Is a pervert and craves "male attention". Ian's Body Horror abilities involve tentacles. It's virtually guaranteed this is going to happen eventually once she finds out about that.
- Hot-Blooded: To almost parodic levels.
- Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Suiko can veer into this territory from time to time, given one of her major influxes in life is anime.
- Lovable Sex Maniac: Has shades of this at times.
- Love Freak: Obsessed with a particular sort of love: that between a man and a woman. May or may not develop into the above more strongly.
- Manic Pixie Dream Girl: Filled this role to, of all possible characters, Ian Vaner below, and will likely pull it again for other characters in the future.
- Ms. Fanservice: Done deliberately, as Suiko desires male attention.
- Otaku: Quite fond of anime, to the point of deriving multiple mannerisms of her own from it.
- Cosplay: Happens in a lot of her threads.
- Rousing Speech: Gives these out occasionally, as of writing has yet to require one herself.
- Sweet Tooth
"Are you trying to tell me it isn't yours? Did you steal it? Stealing is bad, you know? Lying is bad as well, both are against the rules."
Role Played by: Sota
"...Oooh, I love that look. You wanna kill me. You wanna kill me with every fiber of your being. So much hatred and rage boiling under the surface...I'm getting a close-up look at what you keep bottled up inside, and it's beautiful. They say true beauty is what's inside, and this...!"

Trolling people has never been so existentially squishy.!
Descriptions: Adopted son of Alexander Vaner, and named Ian by his adoptive father, from as far back as he could remember he'd never quite managed to fit in, finding himself constantly questioning the very foundations of morality, society and humanity that most of us took for granted, and as such frequently finds himself at odds against authority and the status quo. An agent of chaos, Ian lives by rules of his own making
, frequently mocking the herd mentality
that he believed the majority of people subscribed to. Recently discovered the ability to switch his gender, and as such took on the alter ego that is Jean Vaner.
- Anti-Hero: Easily a Type V, if not an outright Villain Protagonist.
- Attractive Bent-Gender: As Jean Vaner; and how!
- The Anti-Nihilist: Of the self-made Blue and Orange Morality type.
- Berserk Button: Never call him/her a monster.
- Bizarre Human Biology: His player wrote a full scientific analysis (via the on-site blog function) of his/her physiology from an in-character perspective. The full details are quite strange.
- Blue and Orange Morality: Lives purely by rules and values of his/her own making, although it also overlaps with Even Evil Has Standards at times.
- Body Horror: His/her power often involves a good amount of such.
- Byronic Hero: Has many characteristics found in a Byronic Hero, and also overlaps with the Übermensch.
- Characterization Marches On: Has changed much from his/her original depiction, and openly views some of his previous actions with regret.
- Combat Pragmatist: Favors an opportunistic approach instead of a direct confrontation, but in the event of the latter s/he can almost certainly be counted upon to be one of these.
- Dangerously Genre Savvy
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Tends to get easily set off, torrential profanity typically ensuing.
- Humanity Is Insane / Humans Are Morons: See Only Sane Man, below.
- Hypocrite: For all his hammy speeches about individuality, freedom and being one's own master, as soon as he noticed the Machine King's overwhelming power, what does he do? That's right, he readily switches sides, or at least attempts to. At least he gets Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves however.
- It's All About Me
- Lack of Empathy: Has been outright referred to as a sociopath from time to time.
- Large Ham
- Leitmotif: Holds the distinction of being a rare Hyakuji character who has their own original theme song composed for him/her, Orfgrad.
- Lovecraftian Superpower: Has the ability to fully control his body and absorb any biological material to replicate and assimilate. This leads to weaponized BodyHorror along these lines most of the time.
- Might Makes Right: Possibly his/her primary motivation to gain power at all costs.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: Has now ceased being socially unaware. However, continues to act like an oblivious spaz to fake people out.
- Only Sane Man: Sees himself/herself as such due to being (at least from his/her perspective) one of the few who learned to question and challenge social norms and the status quo and who possesses the desire to be a master of his/her own destiny. Sees the conformist attitude that most "normal" people subscribe to as a form of insanity, or idiocy - likely both.
- Selfish Cannot Comprehend Good: Finds Jonny's attempt at Taking the Imagine Blade for Selene more than a little perplexing, and (for a time anyways) had a hard time figuring out what drives an individual's Heroic Sacrifice.
- Power Perversion Potential: Put to all kinds of disturbing applications, some of which can't be mentioned on Hyakuji proper due to content rules. On the relatively light side, engages in Paid Dating as Jean to make money and obtain genetic samples (either through kisses orrrr...) to absorb. On the Brain Bleach side, regularly raids the garbage cans of the female dorms for discarded tampons to absorb the menstrural blood. Ian is not unfamiliar with hentai jokes that tend to crop up whenever he uses tentacles, though Jean has more self-control.
- Social Darwinist: Has some elements of one, and doesn't deny that s/he has elements of a Social Darwinist, but doesn't quite like being thought of as one, seeing it as an oversimplification of his personal philosophy.
- The Unfettered: Albeit with a good helping of Pragmatic Villainy and Visionary Villain thrown in, which is why in spite of his utterly lawless attitude he doesn't go out to Kick the Dog For the Evulz.
- Troll: Much overlap with TheGadfly, deliberately pulls what he calls "inciting insight" in which he provokes people as much as he can, pressing the worst buttons that he can identify on them, usually to prove some sort of point and/or demonstrate the importance of their life choices and how they choose to shape their identities. Loves messing with people for fun anyway though, and particularly delights in abusing the Jean shape to do so.

Role Played by: Fin
A Really 700 Years Old half-phantom
, for the longest amount of time in her existence Youma had been feared for her reputation as a demonic killer with no regard for human life
. All that changed when a powerful priestess subdued the half-phantom and imprisoned her within a scroll
, which eventually ended up in the Hyakuji shrine somewhere in the present and subsequently freed by Meglumar
and the Doctor
. With some tutelage from Selene on the basics of magic
, Youma ended up being bound to Seth by means of a Servant-Master Contract as a Saber class servant
- Break the Cutie: Youma's entire backstory pre-Hyakuji is practically made of this trope.
- Burn the Witch!: What her adopted family tried on her when they learned of her immortality.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander
- Combat Pragmatist: Her standard approach is to simply go straight for the kill; no Pre Ass Kicking One Liner, In the Name of the Moon speeches, or fancy pose-downs. But then again, when you've spent a good part of your existence putting up with Everything Trying to Kill You, rules of engagement and anything regarding honor in combat is probably something you quickly learn to toss out through the window.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: More of "Crouching Cloud Cuckoo Lander, Hidden Badass".
- Disproportionate Retribution: Upset her or her friends in any way, and you're dead. See Murder Is the Best Solution below; this girl has no understanding of "proportional response" or use of appropriate levels of force.
- Dual Wielding
- Everything Trying to Kill You: An integral part of her backstory, and pretty much a Freudian Excuse that justifies her current behavior.
- Expy: Of Konpaku Youmu of Touhou fame.
- Katanas Are Just Better: Justified in that said katanas are supernatural in origin, and that she is Japanese afterall.
- Meaningful Name: Youma is a Japanese word for "demon", and she lives up to every single bit of it.
- Murder Is the Best Solution: Her most common approach to a problem.
- Older Than They Look / Really 700 Years Old: Exactly What It Says on the Tin
- Omnicidal Maniac: Back during her worst days she pretty much killed anyone who so much as looked at her the wrong way - men, women and children alike. She's mellowed out since, although not by much and perhaps only so because Seth is holding her morality chain.
- Poisonous Friend: To Seth and The Musketeers, having a more cynical code of morality compared to the rest of them.
- Retired Monster: While not quite as Ax-Crazy as she was 700 years ago, it had less (who am I kidding? More like nothing) to do with her becoming reformed but simply because in modern times she no longer has to deal with everyone trying to kill her. Mess with her however, and you will learn she didn't earn her title of The Calamity Demon for nothing. Also evident in that she showed no remorse over her past killings, and can casually (even seeming somewhat proudly) talk about her bloodstained personal history with friends.
- Sealed Evil in a Can
- Sociopathic Hero: With more emphasis on the "sociopath" part, and the hero part coming in only due to Seth's influence.
- Then Let Me Be Evil: Overlapping with Not Helping Your Case in her backstory - due to her immortality every family that adopted her eventually came to view her as a demon rather than a human being and as such, tries to kill her. The second attempt on her life pushed her past the brink, to what essentially can be summed up as "screw it, you think I'm a demon? Then I shall be the most vengeful and bloodthirsty demon ever to walk the face of the earth!" And thus did she earn her title as The Calamity Demon, and with each report of carnage left in her wake, her reputation as evil incarnate grew, which led to more people trying to hunt her down, thus leading to more deaths... you can see where this eventually led to.
- Tranquil Fury: Youma is unnaturally calm in combat, cutting down opponents in silence without much of an expression. But then again, when you've spent a good part of your immortal existence living with Every Thing Trying To Kill You and in response slashing a bloody path right through them you learn to not think too much about it.
- Tsundere: Is this towards Seth.
- The Dreaded: During her days as The Calamity Demon.
- The Unfettered: Manifests itself through her Combat Pragmatist philosophy. Youma tends to have no inhibitions regarding use of lethal force, having no concept of (and seemingly incapable of understanding) the concept of proportionate response.
- Tragic Monster / Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: But then again, it was the very people who took her in at first who made her into who she is.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Gets called out by her more morally-sound compatriots but most often Seth whenever she steps out of line.
Role Played by: sebsman
- Awesome but Impractical: His transformation makes him much more dangerous, but he can't carry that many pixels without preparing.
- Freak Lab Accident: Because of the videogame he created, it sent him into a coma and gave him his powers.
- Glass Cannon: His pixels allow him to blast concrete if he uses enough of them, but due to being gaming all day, he is slow and weak.
- Lightning Bruiser: Bit Hero mode increases his physical attributes exponentially, leading him to this.
- Parental Neglect: He literally did not speak a word to his parents for years while living in the same house.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Natural at that.
: Younger sister of now-renowned hero of Hyakuji Seth Ryouga, who grew up leading a mostly normal life in Tokyo's Sumida district, who didn't let her older brother's transfer to Hyakuji get her down too much. Until the events of Season 5, when the city was plunged into chaos thanks to the machinations of the Four Heavenly Kings. After doing some extensive investigations into the incident, she decided that the Extranormal Institute
had a role to play in all this mess, and moved there, determined to do something about it.
- Badass Bystander: As of her most recent appearance in the second Hyakuji Movie event.
- Badass Normal: Averted; she may be intellectually and athletically gifted, but to date she has had no actual experience with combat situations.
- Comes Great Responsibility: The (perceived) absence of this trope is the main cause of her negative view towards supers.
- Dare to Be Badass: Received one from Kell during the attack on the shopping mall. It backfired spectacularly, see Freak Out! below.
- Fantastic Racism: Basically her attitude towards all individuals with powers, overlapping with Beware the Superman. And she doesn't really care whether they're "heroes" or "villains" - in her eyes they are all equally insufferable.
- Freak Out!: Suffered a minor case during the mall attack, leading to her What the Hell, Hero? speech, below.
- Ordinary High-School Student: Is exceptionally bright, but is otherwise ordinary in every way.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: During the attack on the shopping mall during the second movie event.
- Smug Super: What she fundamentally sees every super as.
- Unfazed Everygirl: Inverted; the activities of supers invariably get on her nerves regardless of their intent.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Delivers a rather harsh one during the attack on the mall, which also overlaps with "The Reason You Suck" Speech, aimed at supers.
- With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Thinks that every super has their screws loose in one way or another; either a Smug Super, Drunk with Power, or more likely than not, both.

"You know, its times like these where I think you're trying to drive me insane, Heleth. Are you trying to make me crazy?"
Role Played By: bmsman816
A pyromancer in Hyakuji High, born with his powers and was swiftly abandoned by his mother
at the tender age of three when his powers were made known, leaving his father to single-handedly bring him up, although his father was far more accepting of his nature due to having been raised and educated in Hyakuji. Much of his life to date was spent learning how to use and harness his powers in a safe and practical manner. Friendly, but somewhat shy in terms of disposition, he's usually not one to take center stage, although having found a spot in the student council as Heleth's right hand man all of that appears set to change. How things might go for him, only time will tell...
- The Chessmaster: Played with, as, while naive typically, he has his moments of intelligence beyond the normal capacity expected. He also has a fond love of chess.
- The Ditz: Has occasional displays of ditziness mixed with moments of brilliance.
- Extreme Doormat: Tends to avoid the spotlight and taking initiative, but appears to be gradually diminishing as he undergoes Character Development.
- Fantastic Racism: Where he was raised, the common folk tend not to be very receptive towards people with powers.
- Nice Guy: Is an all-around agreeable and friendly guy. But don't make him mad, though.
- Oblivious to Love: Tends to not notice forms of affection typically, unless told they are so, to the annoyance of his Love Triangle.
- Parental Abandonment: Was abandoned by his mother in his backstory at the age of three when his powers were discovered, leaving his father to raise him singlehandedly.
- Ping Pong Naïveté: Easily trusts people, but has also been known to be very observant and capable of picking up details that others might easily miss.
- Playing with Fire: As a pyromancer, that is basically his main power.
- Rocket Jump: Can do this by creating a non-lethal exploding fireball beneath his feet to launch himself into the air.
- Shrinking Violet: A rare male example, but also a rather mild case compared to most typical examples of said trope.
- Sweet Tooth: Likes unbranded sodas.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Has a phobia of water. He's slowly learning to overcome it, though.
Insert memorable quote here.
Role Played by: Tzauri
Daughter of a Drow couple
that took up residence among humans in an unspecified American city, Rikina's family had the misfortune of living in a bad neighborhood in the city that was rife with crime
, and news of criminal activities like muggings, racketing and gang activity was pretty much part and parcel of everyday life for the young Drow during her formative years. After seeing how adults like her parents seemed to allow all sorts of lowlifes to walk all over them on a regular basis
, and how the authorities seemed to be generally doing a poor job at keeping crime rates down
, she took it upon herself to help them out by dispensing her own brand of frontier justice
, beginning her vigilante stint at the tender young age of nine
. After several years of honing her skills at hunting down lowlifes, she eventually came to hear of Hyakuji High, and went to enroll in the Japanese Extranormal Institute
, in part to further improve upon her fighting skills, and in other part to bring her frontier justice to that particular city's criminal populace.
- Anti-Hero: Is genuinely sweet and friendly towards most people, but is absolutely ruthless towards criminals.
- Asshole Victim: As far as she's concerned, everyone she's tortured and/or slain is one of these, and fully deserved what they got.
- Blood Knight: Overlaps with Boisterous Bruiser as she gleefully springs into combat, with seemingly no regard for her own safety or well-being; she averts The Berserker however, since she remains a cunning tactician and is far from reckless.
- Child Prodigy: Could be seen as one from the way she's essentially adopted a Self-Made Man approach to becoming a vigilante, entirely relying on her own resources and capabilities. Including, but not limited to:
- Breaking into her parents' gun cabinet by memorizing the lock's combination just by watching.
- Teaching herself how to use Mercy and Compassion in battle by watching knife-fighting technique demonstrations on the internet, and likewise also teaching herself how to use her parents' gun.
- Combat Pragmatist: Part of the package of being Dangerously Genre Savvy; afterall, why should one follow any rules when dealing with people who don't play by any rules to begin with?
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Tends to be very cheerful, if somewhat airheaded during her day-to-day interactions. But as a vigilante she's a shrewd tactician and dirty fighter.
- Cruel Mercy: Her Signature Weapon, Mercy and Compassion are enchanted in such a way that unless a fatal wound is inflicted the target generally bleeds only a little while feeling all the pain of the wounds. Which suits her fine, seeing how it means she is able to prolong her Cold-Blooded Torture sessions.
- Designated Hero: From a meta perspective Rikina counts as one. Her methods of enforcing put her into the realm of a Nominal Hero at best, but in her own eyes she views herself as an Ideal Hero.
- Enfant Terrible: Scored her first kill at the age of nine, and it only gets better from there.
- Good Is Not Soft: She doesn't share Kell's antisocial disposition and Hair-Trigger Temper; on the contrary seemed to be a pretty nice and friendly person. If you are innocent, that is.
- Ironic Name: Her Signature Weapon is a pair of daggers named "Mercy" and "Compassion". They were named so because their original owner, also a vigilante had a strict personal code to never take a life.
- It Gets Easier: Subverted; her first kill, made at the age of nine was described in her backstory as being made "in cold blood". And the rest, as they say, is history.
- Knight Templar: To put it in the motto of The Hanging Judges, "Justice, Whatever the Cost".
- Little Miss Badass
- Pay Evil unto Evil: Essentially the backbone of her philosophy as a vigilante.
- Pragmatic Hero: Can be thought of as an idealist who's willing to use cynical means to achieve her idealistic ends.
- Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right: Effectively uses this as a justification for her methods of enforcing frontier justice.
- Smiting Evil Feels Good: She definitely seems to enjoy what she's doing. A swift death to evildoers is considered an act of mercy on her part, and she's capable (and happy to) doing far worse, and thus far hasn't lost any sleep over it.
- Taught by Experience: She's never trained under a mentor, instead picking up her skills and combat smarts as she goes along her vigilante career.
- Tautological Templar: While she never says it outright, many a times her actions and words seem to imply that she regards herself as being always in the right by virtue of being "one of the good guys".
- What Measure Is a Non-Human?: There are people, and then there are criminal scum. And no, these two are not one and the same in her book.

Misora Fujioka is a shy, if fairly quirky, half-zombie student at Hyakuji High School. After her mother was bitten by a zombie while pregnant with her, Misora was born as a human-zombie hybrid. In an attempt to understand the condition she was in, her parents sent her to Hyakuji City
A first-year student gifted with the power to create any inanimate object from his imagination.
Kazuya works as a servant of the Weiss family, and is a member of the Hyakuji Newspaper Club, as well as part of Spike’s gang.
Role Played by: Kazuya
- Accidental Pervert: Fang Krios thinks he’s a pervert, at any rate.
- Awesomeness by Analysis: Has the ability to memorize every detail of an object at a glance.
- Battle Butler: In a sense, to Frederica Weiss. He does work for her family, and he worked at the Maid Cafe during the School Festival.
- Cool Uncle: He was taken in by one after his father got sick. It was his uncle who completed his training in his family’s Creation Art, as well as pushed him into kendo.
- Deceased Parents Are the Best: Kazuya’s father died before his arrival at Hyakuji.
- Heir to the Dojo: To his branch of magic, anyway.
- Imagination-Based Superpower: Kazuya’s power set. Limited by the fact that he can’t create anything with moving parts.
- Jack-of-All-Trades: His training has given him the knowledge to be able to use most of the weapons he creates, or figure them out as he goes along.
- Japanese Delinquents: A bit of a humorous example, Kazuya is slated to accidentally join Spike’s gang because he thought Spike was joking.
- Kendo Team Captain: Not quite the team captain, but his backstory identifies him as a former champion of his school kendo club.
- Photographic Memory: Allows him to accurately copy objects.
- School Newspaper Newshound: Is a member of the newspaper club, so is this by default.
- Spontaneous Weapon Creation: His power set allows for this.
- Stepford Snarker: Apparently hides his awkwardness around people using snark.
- Superpowerful Genetics: Kazuya’s powers run in the family. His father Touya was the 67th Master of their technique. After his death, Kazuya became the 68th.
A foolish assassin who takes the most meager of sums for her jobs, Lucid is the worst sort of person to hire. She is the kind of person that follows her desires in most circumstances, no matter what the consequences are.
"Haha! End of the line~"
Role Played by: Flambe
- Ambiguous Innocence: She is incapable of feeling negative emotions, and is always cheerful. That also means guilt and sorrow are out of the question, even when she does things like bury people alive or betray her friends for a mere penny.
- Armor-Piercing Question: One of her specialties, though this has probably more to do with the fact that she feels no shame in asking questions that normal people wouldn't dare to ask out of fear of making themselves look stupid, and then somehow hitting the right buttons in the process.
- Beware the Silly Ones: Lucid is a goofy idiot who sells ice cream. She also happens to be an amoral assassin that could and would shoot people out of the blue if it amused her. Turning your back to her is a bad idea if she doesn't like you.
- Bladeona Stick: Lucid can now manifest spears called "Proto-Longinus".
- Blue and Orange Morality: She doesn't care for things beyond her benefactor or her own amusement. As she would put it, her priorities are Scarlett, fun, money, and then her friends. She wouldn't care if she was a slave or a free woman, as long as she could continue pursuing her interests in her own ways.
- Born Lucky: This trope feels this is the only reason her Fearless Fool tendencies hadn't somehow gotten her killed a dozen times over.
- Bottomless Magazines: As long as she sings, she can fire her shotgun infinitely.
- Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Lucid suffers from this big-time, so long as she's paid for it beforehand.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: To the highest order. She's silly even in the worst of situations.
- Combat Pragmatist: She doesn't have any rules when it comes to fights. She'd even use her comrades as body shields or bring her shotgun out against helpless people, if she felt like it.
- Confusion Fu: How she operates, all of the time.
- Deader Than Dead: Her strongest power, Finality. If she kills somebody, they die and stay dead. She is walking perma-death, essentially.
- Dumb Muscle: Overlaps with Pintsized Powerhouse. Lucid is small, strong, and dumb as rocks.
- Expy: Personality-wise, she's basically an Expy of Mr. Blonde from Reservoir Dogs.
- Impossibly Cool Weapon: Song powered ghost shotgun.
- Insane Troll Logic: That's her bread and butter, right there.
- It Amused Me: One of her main drives.
- Killer Rabbit: Displays many surface traits associated with "cuteness", but once you get past her paper thin façade she is effectively this trope. (See Manic Pixie Dream Girl below)
- Kryptonite Factor: Proto-Longinus is this to people who can't be killed normally. Even if they have to be killed in specific ways like staking or decapitation, the spears can ignore those requirements.
- Lack of Empathy: Situational. If she likes you, she'll try and accommodate your feelings. If she doesn't, she doesn't care about you as anything other than potential entertainment.
- Questionable. Even for people she likes (Save for Scarlett, that is) her affections are shown more similar to the kind of affection a fan might show towards her favorite celebrity appearing in public, or a figurine collector towards his collection; rather than any form of love or companionship as we understand it.
- Manic Pixie Dream Girl: Lucid plays many of the tropes associated with this archetype Up to Eleven, to the point she essentially seems like an over-the-top parody of one. She displays many superficial traits associated with an adorable personality; but her dark sense of humor and complete lack of morals make her anything but adorable once you get past the sugar-coated exterior. Though Word of God from her creator states that the parody aspect wasn't something he planned at the start.
- Morality Chain: Her benefactor, Scarlett. It's recently demonstrated that she's about the only person that Lucid shows anything resembling genuine human affections and empathy towards.
- More Dakka: Her usual method of fighting, as she has a fully automatic shotgun.
- Musical Assassin: When she sings, bad things happen. Like her opening up on people with a song-powered shotgun.
- Nothing Personal: Lucid never holds grudges. Maiming and killing are just a thing that happen when she's on the job. In fact, it's as normal as breathing, in her opinion.
- The Pollyanna: She just can't seem to stop being happy.
- Refuge in Audacity: The other likely reason for Lucid to be able to get away with the stuff she pulls off; because no one in their right minds would ever imagine someone would dare to pull off stunts as crazy as hers.
- Spontaneous Weapon Creation: She can sing a shotgun into existence.
- Static Character: By sheer virtue of her personality being what it is (see Ambiguous Innocence above) Word of God by her creator states that this an Enforced Trope, but at the same time justifiably so, since she's pretty much incapable of feeling any fear of consequence, guilt or remorse, and is generally incapable of ever learning from her lessons no matter how many times she's defeated or humiliated, so there is no atoning for her misdeeds or any meaningful self-reflection on her part. Her creator pretty much stated her personality isn't intended to grow or develop in any meaningful way.
- Stepford Smiler: Type C (Unstable). Ultimately subverted however, since she makes next to no attempts to hide her insanity.
- Undying Loyalty: To her benefactor.
- The Unfettered: She doesn't hesitate to do whatever she wants to entertain herself, unless her benefactor's interests would be harmed by her doing so. Aside from that, everything is fair game.
- What Is Evil?: Lucid doesn't get it, but she also doesn't care for any explanations. It's all the same to her.

A Stand User
from America, Joel grew up in a poor environment but always tried to make the best of it. Eventually, Joel's dad got a better job offer in Ohio and his family moved away as soon as they could. When he was fourteen, he was caught up in a museum robbery and after a robber with an itchy trigger finger shot his dad in the leg, Joel went ballistic and his Stand and it's abilities activated for the first time, freaking out the robbers and letting Joel save the day as a result. At first he was dubbed a hero, but as time went on his friends at school only saw him for his Stand, or what they perceived as strange abilities. Joel dropped out of school and they eventually moved to Hyakuji, Japan, spending the next two years home-schooled. Now ready to attend, Joel only hopes he will be accepted for who he is.
- YMMV: Neutral Good
- Both Sides Have a Point: Despite trying to keep his own opinion, he tries to listen to people's arguments and then bring up points of his own, trying to reach a compromise. Of course, just like anyone else he has his moments.
- I Just Want To Be Accepted: Things that happened during his middle school days have made him have some doubts about people. Wants to be accepted as a person, regardless of whether or not he has powers.
- Humans Are Special: See blog post written IC by the author. He may have his doubts, but he believes that every Human on Earth matters, and that they should stand up for what they believe in.
- Blood Knight: His fight with Spike Ito seems to have awakened this side of him. Though, he denies it or is confused about it so far.
- Worthy Opponent: Considers Spike Ito this, and looks up to him for his ability to fight without fear despite having no powers. Although, the cause for this may be because of reasons Joel hasn't figured out yet..
- Brought Down to Normal: Realized from his battle with Spike that relying too much on his Stand wouldn't be the best idea, as he might fight someone who can neutralize it through their own Stand or some psychic ability. Starts using his own fists by the epilogue of the thread, never forgetting his fight with Spike. Also suggests in the aforementioned blog post that those who rely a lot on their powers pick up a special weapon, or some type of fighting style.
- Paranormal Investigator: Has this as a hobby.
- Tempting Fate: When it comes to myths or legends, he's so interested in them he doesn't care what happens. He'll attempt to bust it without any hesitation at all.
- Friendly Address Privileges: Often invites people to call him "JoJo" as a nickname.
- Battle Cry: His Stand can do this. Also, since the two have linked growth Joel uses's Meteora's voice for one, this combined with Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs.
- "MORA! MORA!! MORA!! MORAAAA!!!"
- Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Meteora can do this by default, Joel can do this because of the two's linked growth but has to build it up first by punching the air repeatedly until his fists move faster and faster.
- Determinator: Despite Spike Ito having more experience than him due to being at Hyakuji longer, Joel keeps getting up to fight him, even fighting him on his own terms. The fight eventually stops and ends in a draw. Because it was a fight with no animosity, the two tell each other stories from their lives and leave on good terms.
- Precision F-Strike: "What in the actual fuck?!"

A Demon Hunter and magus-in-training from Britain, Cassandra tends to give most the first impression of one who's generally hard to get along with
, being intensely competitive, acid-tongued and having a chip on her shoulder. A falling-out with her father forced her out of her home in Britain, and to seek an alternative place where she could further her studies into magic, which would be none other than Hyakuji High
- Action Girl
- Ambition Is Evil: Or at least that's what her father thought of the Clock Tower mages, causing him to swear off magic. Cass doesn't quite see things the same, though...
- Ancestral Weapon: Edelweiss, her Mystic Code.
- Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted. Her entire back is covered by a horrifying third degree burn which she goes to great lengths to hide.
- Bodyguarding a Badass: Landed a job as the bodyguard of Selene Frostfire, a magus whose bloodline traces back to before the beginning of human history. Cassandra's bloodline traces back to, uh, about 20 years ago.
- Broken Bird
- Cluster Bleep Bomb: She tends to curse a lot, but when her anger was magnified due to a negative energy effect, over half of the post was censor bars.
- Combat Pragmatist
- Comes Great Responsibility: Invoked when Cass mentions how drawing her sword and attempting to take a life when her mind and judgement were clouded by the Hate Plague was something that goes against everything she stood for.
- Dark and Troubled Past: And how! And she blames her father as the cause of the family tragedy to led to things being what they are now.
- Deadpan Snarker
- Death by Origin Story: Cass' mother, in the character's personal history.
- Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Part of her personality states that in order to appear tough, Cass refuses to show signs of weakness, and goes as far as to push away those who offer to help her.
- Driven to Suicide: Cass's mother in her backstory, as a result of receiving a bite from her vampiric archnemesis, chose to end her life while still human instead of suffering a Fate Worse Than Death by being turned into a vampire.
- Dysfunctional Family: But it wasn't always that way, and it's not a stretch to assume they'd seen happier times.
- Establishing Character Moment: In Gym Class, Ryouma decided to try and force Cass and Seth to work together by firing a giant pinball at both of them, which would be nearly impossible for either of them to stop on their own. Cass stopped it on her own.
- Even Jerks Have Standards: While hardly a nice person, Cass was still aware that she nearly crossed the line with her attempt to take a human life, an action that she was genuinely regretful towards, so much so that she even placed a Self-Geas spell on herself with Seth as The Kid with the Leash, lest she loses control again.
- Flat "What.": Used quite often
- Hair-Trigger Temper: It doesn't take much to set her off.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Gets it from a younger doppelganger of herself, using her own weapon during her Battle in the Center of the Mind - albeit it wasn't so much of a battle but more of simply getting skewered while struggling with a Heroic BSOD state.
- Jerk Ass: What she seems to come across to many. It remains to be seen whether there's actually a good person underneath it all.
- Magic Knight: Being able to wield both sword and sorcery makes Cass qualify as one.
- Mana Burn: Her Mystic Code, the sword Edelweiss, is a 'Prana Well', an object that drains magical energy. Though because it drains a finite amount of magical energy through stabbing, powerful wizards will usually run out of blood before running out of mana.
- Not to mention that Cassandra herself being a magus makes it inconvenient at times.
- Never Be Hurt Again: A major motivating force in her life ever since her family tragedy.
- Parental Abandonment: The end result of Calling the Old Man Out, holding him responsible for her mother's death.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Tomboy to Selene
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Implied by her father to be a far more pleasant person before their parent-child relationship began breaking apart after her mother's death.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Seth.

Description: Dawn is the first in several generations of her family to be able to use magic, this lead to her father treating her as little more then a tool earning the resentment of the girl. Eventually she escaped her house and managed to make her way to Hyakuji in order to get strong enough that she could do what she wanted with her life.
- Broken Ace: Intelligent, skilled and fit however the harrassment she experienced due to her father's influence has driven her personality to become very dark, this has manifested itself in her willingness to kill and her willingness to obtain power at any cost.
- Child Prodigy: Being born with the ability to use magic Dawn was raised as one.
- It Gets Easier: After accidentally killing a henchman sent to kidnap her Dawn has found her method's becoming more brutal, she has been able to kill people with less trouble to her conscience.
- Flight: One of her abilities allows her to manifest a pair of crystalline wings which allow temporary flight until the spell ends.
- Squishy Wizard: Not exactly one to get into the melee herself, Dawn prefers to try and keep at a range offering supporting fire with her various ranged projectile spells.
- Stepford Smiler: Type A, of late she has taken to wearing a false smile to make sure that she doesn't burden anyone.
Role Played by: Erin
A young girl who is secretly an assassin, sent to kill one of the teachers, Hiro Tsukasa. In order to get close to him, she infiltrates the school as a student, observing him by taking all of his classes. So far, she's been in school for almost two years without anyone finding out about why she's really there.
After meeting Seth Ryouga, she's begun to learn more and more about what she calls the "human world", having been raised only to kill since birth. Most of all, she desperately tries to learn more about something that normal people call "love".
- Become A Real Girl: Though she still doubts at this point whether or not it is possible for her.
- Creepy Monotone: Talks like this all the time.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: At the hands of Seth Ryouga.
- Emotionless Girl
- Extreme Doormat
- Fish out of Water: Having been an assassin her whole life, she's never attended an actual school. She probably thinks Hyakuji is normal.
- I Do Not Speak Non Verbal
- Literal-Minded: Very.
- In one instance, Oliver attempted to explain her relationship to one of her competing love interests, Youma, by using an analogy, comparing Gail to coffee and Youma to soda. Gail thought that Youma had literally been polymorphed into a soda bottle.
- Love Dodecahedron: Part of one. Seth has a LOT of potential love interests.
- No Sense of Humor: Has never laughed once in her entire life
- No Social Skills
- Stalker with a Crush: Uses her Astral Form to stalk Seth occasionally
- The Dog Bites Back: Though she didn't kill her father directly, she stood by and allowed him to die.
- Training from Hell: At the hands of an Ex-Spetznaz, starting from age 4
- Tyke Bomb: The only reason her father even allowed her to be born was so that she could be raised to kill. She became an infamous child assassin, taking out targets as early as 9 years old.
- Violently Protective Girlfriend: Hana, one of Seth's Love Interests, heavily intoxicated, jokingly said she would kill Seth if he cheated on her. Gail threatened to kill her. And meant it.
- Justified in that she has No Social Skills and had no idea that Hana was not serious.
- What Is This Thing You Call Love?: Not only with Seth, but also with her father. Even though he only used her, and she intentionally caused his death, she can't figure out whether or not she loved him.
Hinata/Otoha and Hotaru Kagura
Exhibit A of things totally screwed up in Hyakuji. Otoha. - Chizu
Otoha: Grandma once said this. I am she who 'Walks the path of Heaven, trolling over all... Hinata. Kagura.
Hotaru: Grandma never said such a thing!

(Image of Characters here if any)
Hinata and Hotaru are sisters who used to be one character because the older of the sisters (Hinata) was also part of the younger's powers as a Stand
. After a few adventures here and there (some of them involving hooking up with a boy thanks to tentacle noodle monster) and spanning other dimensions, the older of the two managed to regain a body and become a living person again.
They were also directly taken from H2O: Footprints in the Sand
and are almost clones right down to their names to the point where one could argue that their roleplayer just took them and changed a few things and didn't bother with originality. With that said, they've still managed to fit in well with the rest of Hyakuji. Well, as well as most characters do, anyway.
Tropes (still a work in progress):
- Back from the Dead: Hinata after the Kingdom Hearts arc.
- Breath Weapon: Hinata's SHOOP DA WHOOP attack, which is mostly just used for comedic effect. Just recently though, she seems to have given it more practical applications.
- Chivalrous Pervert: Hinata will actively fight those who might try to harass other girls. In the meantime, she has cameras everywhere in the neighbor's room downstairs, and even trap doors with premise of protecting her boyfriend's little sister, and yes, even to watch over her two friends when they get close. ESPECIALLY when they get close.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander and Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: Hinata appears to be first one one in day to day situations, but is often shown to be full of Hidden Depths when the situation calls for her to act seriously. Hotaru tries to be the second one, but she seems to be eventually giving up on it now that Hinata has a body again. (Credit goes to Lawman for pointing this out)
- Dojikko: Hotaru is this, just like her original character was.
- Hell, even her Nobody Xaturoh during the Kingdom Hearts arc was safe from this - she kept screwing up the use of her darkness portals and always ended up everywhere except where she was supposed to be.
- Face Palm: Being in close proximity to Hinata will elicit this at some point. Hotaru has it worse, since she LIVES with her.
- In Damon's case, he did a DOUBLE FACEPALM when Hinata's self-depreciating description of herself prompted his elemental to ask what a pervert was.
- Getting Crap Past the Radar: Oddly enough, when some characters are about to get it on, it usually cuts to Hinata laughing or talking about something somewhat related. She even has her own Relax-o-Vision picture.
- This is made even more ironic because she actively tries to catch video of said crap that gets past. See Chivalrous Pervert above.
- For the Lulz: The reason why Hinata does everything else that isn't related to the thread she's in. Sometimes she'll even do this BECAUSE it's related.
- Hammer Space: Hotaru usually has this for comedic effect, usually to slap Hinata with a harisen (it used to be herself because Hinata's ghost could feel what Hotaru feels). Other times, it's to blow up the occasional Accidental Pervert like the one time she accidentally grabbed Hajime's... well... Elephant. She never uses it in actual combat though.
- Henshin Hero and Kamen Rider: Hinata was able to become two different Riders - the first time was as the sword form of Den-O, then she and her sister became a single hero after the Kingdom Hearts arc.
- Marry Them All: Even with Hinata now alive again, the two sisters seem to not mind if their relationship with Hajime ends up like this. One has to wonder how that would work whenever he's Hamaji though, but given Hinata's tendencies...
- Miko: Despite not having the uniform, Hotaru still uses ofuda when dealing with supernatural elements, and even has the stick that goes with the profession.
- No Fourth Wall: To keep things simple, Hinata always refers to the other dimensions she's been to as "other forums", and won't bother explaining why. She even banters with the Narrator in THREADS SHE'S NOT EVEN IN.
Hinata: "Probably not."
Narrator: ... Otoha, get back in the other threads, you're not supposed to be narrating here.
Hinata: "Psh, fine, I'll be waiting in that Arcadia mission thread if you ever get around to posting or something."
- Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Hinata's signature attack as a Stand. She still able to this when alive, though it's done less often now.
- Shout-Out: Every other thing Hinata talks about will reference something else in other media, much to the consternation of whoever she's talking to.
- Some Call Me Tim: Hinata was originally known as Otoha as a stand, and everyone still calls her that even when she was resurrected. She doesn't seem to mind, either. Some people still even make the mistake of calling Hotaru as Hinata.
- The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: There's a very big reason why their roleplayer got the WTF award. She even preempts readers sometimes. Related to Troll below.
- Troll: There's that completely unrelated profile involving them for one. The music will automatically start playing in your head and you will invariably rage at her for it, and this is just ONE of the things she does to get a rise out of the READERS, much more so for the actual characters in the thread.
Kell D. Amaranth
Insert memorable quote here
Role Played By: Flambe
Descriptions: A daughter of the Amaranth family, whose members are Luchadors or Luchadoras by trade, as well as vigilantes who fight against criminals and supernatural entities as their family duty. Formerly a rebellious daughter who tried to run away from taking up the family responsibility, Kell's life was changed when she came back with her right arm being replaced by a wooden one, which possessed unknown powers that make it a formidable weapon against the supernatural, but also make her a potential danger owing to suspicions that the limb might take over her mind. It was for this reason she was sent to Hyakuji High, to learn how to become the master of her new powers and not the other way around.
- Anti-Hero: Seems to be a Type IV with occasional shades of Type V on her worse days, and Type III on her better days.
- The Atoner: Their family tradition of being vigilante enforcers apparently started when one of her ancestors shamed himself by running away and leaving an innocent civilian to get killed by a demon. In order to atone for his actions, he started the family tradition of enforcing vigilante justice.
- Blood Knight: As far as Kell is concerned, if you're not an evil person to be hunted down, then chances are you're just someone annoying and in need of a good pounding. No matter how one looks at it, any time is clobbering time for Kell.
- Combat Pragmatist: Kell isn't known for playing nice or fair in combat.
- Good Is Not Nice: Kell has this in spades; although to call her "good" might be pushing the envelope. If anything, she seems to be closer to Chaotic Neutral than any of the good alignments.
- He Who Fights Monsters: Part of her feels that given her clan's methods of enforcing vigilante justice they are at times Not So Different from those they hunt.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Rikina, a fellow vigilante and Anti-Hero.
- Jerk Ass: And a pretty egregious one at that.
- Knight in Sour Armor: On her best days she seemed to be one of these, having ultimately noble goals, but lacking the idealism to believe in them.
- Knight Templar: It's hinted from time to time that the entire clan operates on an extremely violent code of justice, and are not above delivering harsh punishments to their own when they go astray.
- Morality Chain / Kid with the Leash: Her imaginary friend Cariot seems to play this role for Kell, often giving her (ignored) advice on believing in The Power of Friendship and to learn to enjoy life a bit.
- Pay Evil unto Evil: Pretty much her modus operandi, it doesn't help either that the Amaranths' definition of "good" and "evil" are rather sketchy to begin with.
- You Can't Fight Fate: One of her greatest flaws is said to be her fatalism.
(Image of Characters here if any)
An American teenager with an unusual gift of Creating Life
out from death. First discovered his ability by pure accident in the aftermath of a road accident involving his family pet, whereby he found out he was capable of breaking down the flesh and tissues of recently-deceased animal life on touch into raw biomass, which he could then shape into new lifeforms and animate them. His experimentations involving his newfound abilities eventually caught the eye of the B.P.R.D., who took the boy under their wing and sent him to study in Hyakuji High to help him get better acquainted with his powers. But unknown to his custodians, the youth had his own plans and agendas.
- Animal Eye Spy: The utility haemonculi, with which he is also able to borrow their Super Senses via Mental Fusion, which allows him to see the world through their eyes and ears.
- Arch-Enemy: Hiro Tsukasa, Lavender Smith, Kotoka Youma and possibly more. And all for pretty selfish and petty reasons too.
- Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: Poaching local wildlife to harvest raw materials for his haemonculi brood, conspiring to exploit an apocalypse scenario for his own gain - twice... goes around heckling aspiring idol singers during their concerts, and spitting on the shoes of part-time models.
- Bio Punk: The overall character concept appears to heavily borrow many elements from said genre.
- Bond Creatures: See Animal Eye Spy above.
- Creating Life: What his powers are all about.
- Face-Heel Turn: His obsessions appear to have caused him to become a Mad Scientist of sorts.
- For Science!: Appears to be his primary motivation for the most part.
- Four Eyes, Zero Soul: If one considers him as a villain.
- Hive Mind: His creations are all linked together in this manner, although the alien nature of said Hive Mind meant he was only able to meld with it for a limited amount of time. The creation of The Phylactery changed all of this however.
- Hyper Awareness: Thanks to his Mental Fusion with his utility haemonculi allowing him to "borrow" their Super Senses, his awareness has been enhanced to the point that few details are capable of escaping his attention. This has pretty much served as a double-edged sword, but not that he ever cared to admit it.
- Hypocrite: See Inferiority Superiority Complex and Moral Myopia below. Despite being being grudgingly aware of the fact that Perfection Is Impossible it certainly didn't stop him from acting like a total Jerk Ass towards others for their imperfections; imperfections that only he is capable of noticing.
- Inferiority Superiority Complex: Implied in his profile. For all the good his Hyper Awareness did him he was also suggested to be painfully aware of his own flawed nature, and for that reason was said to be terrified at the notion of self-reflecting.
- Irrational Hatred: Towards "imperfections", even if said imperfections are visible only to him. He's willing to go through great lengths just to vent his displeasure towards the subject of his hate, even if it's really more trouble than it's worth.
- Just Think of the Potential: His sentiments towards the plot devices at the end of seasons 4 and 5. He saw them as an invaluable opportunity to create a new world, and the option to instead preserve the status quo was something that left a bitter taste in his mouth.
- The Maker: Spends most of his time outside of classes experimenting with his powers, harvesting raw materials to conduct research on creating improved breeds of his haemonculi.
- Mix-and-Match Critter: His haemonculi tend to combine the physical attributes and appearances of two or more creatures, ranging from animals that exist in Real Life, to fantasy creatures.
- Moral Myopia / Never My Fault: Held a grudge against Lavender Smith for what he perceived as a case of Selective Enforcement on her part when she ordered him to leave the premises of Chris' concert while allowing Youma's attempts at getting an Ordered Apology out of him over the threat of physical violence to slide. This was utterly ignoring the fact that A) he pretty much threw the first stone by not only jeering loudly at Chris but even insulting her in public, in front of all her friends and supporters; and B) Lavender had just seconds ago stepped in to break up an imminent brawl between him and Youma, and C) he was pretty much making a public nuisance of himself by that point.
- Mundane Utility: Can give Ian Vaner a good fight when it comes to being Hyakuji's poster boy for said trope. Apparently, frequent usage of his powers has developed into something akin to an addiction, whereby his haemonculi's Super Senses have all but replaced his human senses on a day-to-day basis, to the point that he considers himself handicapped when forced to fall back on his human senses.
- Nerd Glasses: Appears to be wearing these in his character portrait, although they are in reality a sophisticated Heads-Up Display. They also apparently serve to conceal the fact that he frequently sports Empty Eyes due to him not using them much, preferring to instead see the world through the enhanced eyes of his utility haemonculi.
- Opportunistic Bastard: Never passes up an opportunity to accrue more power for himself.
- Selective Obliviousness: His haemonculi-enhanced senses seemingly never fail to pick up on any defects or flaws on humans and other mortal beings, but yet in his posts it's never stated if his senses could detect any flaws in the forms of supernatural entities (such as the fox spirit Senka and the ghost Saigyouji).
- Took a Level in Jerkass: Really kicked off when he started getting addicted to using his powers, as his Super Senses have warped his perceptions to the point that he became virtually impossible to please due to him being able to notice "imperfections" everywhere he went, which in turn also led to him becoming obsessed with the notion of perfection.
- The Unapologetic: See Moral Myopia / Never My Fault above.

Roleplayed by Kaito
Toshiro Toyoshima is a young man with a rought past and a fiery spirit. He was abandoned as a child and had to fend for himself, joining various gangs in order to survive only to be given refuge by a monk later in his life. He believes himself to be the strongest person alive and carries an attitude to match his words. He constantly seeks the strong in order to beat them and prove he is the better fighter. His legal guardian set him to Hyakuji because he believed it was a good place for him after changing schools many times.
- Blood Knight: He more or less lives for the fight, but he will also fight to defend others.
- Expy: He looks pretty similar to the protagonist of Yu Yu Hakusho for some reason...
- Idiot Hero: His self-driven goal of becoming the strongest and most likely won't be afraid of any imminent danger. Shiro's reaction would be to punch fear in the face!
- I'm Not Here to Make Friends: He's not really interested in the concept of friendship, but he's still a decent guy.
- Martial Pacifist: Averted, once he sees a strong enough opponent, he'll probably punch first and ask questions later.
- Street Urchin: Ever since he was abandoned in the streets, he led a life of crime until he met the monk.
- Worthy Opponent: Opponents which prove to be exceptionally good are like this for Shiro.

Role Played by: Chizu
Descriptions: Salvatrice Tatiana Annalisa Rosabella Ricci
. That is her full name, wielding the element of light
as her power, Star lives up to her namesake by having a personality that's mostly giggles and sunshin
, and an all-around fun person to hang around with. There's certainly a lot more to her than meets the eye
however, and she's certainly not without her dark moments. Not that one can tell at a casual glance, of course.
- A Sinister Clue: Star is left-handed. Although she appears to be cheerful and kind and an all around Genki Girl, she definitely has her ruthless moments. Although she has never actually killed anyone, it hasn't been for lack of trying. Star has used lethal force on numerous occasions, including during the Tournament Arc against Valentine on the premise that she asked for it, and against a Brainwashed and Crazy Seiichi. Chizu has confirmed Star as her most ruthless character before, despite her sugary sweet personality, in part because while she normally subscribes to the standard idea of morality, her elemental side makes her see the world a little differently.
- Action Girl: Recently she's overcome most of her issues, and gained a good deal of control over her powers, and for all intents and purposes has taken levels in badass
- Battle Couple: With her boyfriend Meglumar, forming a Sword And Sorcery duo.
- Broken Ace: Beautiful, intelligent, and good with people, but often suffers from self-worth issues due to her inability to control the more potent aspects of her powers, which sometimes lead to her being more of a burden than a help. But she hides all of these issues behind her smiles and cheerful, energetic demeanor.
- Cursed with Awesome: Being one-quarter Light Aeon makes her a natural prodigy compared to other photomancers, however all that power also comes at a price, namely a lack of control, and when overtaxed her own powers can literally consume her.
- From Bad to Worse: Remember her Power Incontinence? Unless she can find a way to somehow integrate her human and elemental side she can only expect to become more unstable the stronger she gets, and at her present rate of power development the light aeons estimate she might have but a year left before suffering an inevitable Super Power Meltdown unless a miracle occurs.
- Genki Girl: Besides her outgoing and cheerful personality, Star is noted to tire a lot less slowly compared to normal humans, which is said to be due to the fact that solar energy actually energizes her.
- Half-Human Hybrid: More of one-quarter Light Aeon, but you get the picture.
- Hard Light: Can generate this with her powers.
- Hope Is Scary: Invoked in this topic. At this point Star felt that it would've been easier for her to simply become numb to the prospect of her inevitable demise, rather than to face the uncertainties of struggling to live, especially when it's unclear whether her struggles would make any difference or not.
- Light Is Not Good: One of the painful lessons Star learned is how destructive her elemental side can get when not kept in check.
- Light The Way: Her power set is basically this.
- Power Degeneration: Overlapping with Secretly Dying. Has actually been undergoing this since birth, although the Power Degeneration was initially kept in check by a series of elemental seals placed upon her by Helios as well as the cross pendant mentioned below. However, with the seals broken and the way she has been forcefully taxing herself since then, the process is actually accelerating, and barring a miracle happening it would appear that a Super Power Meltdown is inevitable.
- Power Limiter: The cross pendant worn around her neck, a gift from her mother, is actually a failsafe to guard against Power Incontinence.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Is the red Oni to her boyfriend Meglumar's blue.
- Squishy Wizard: Star isn't really one for trading blows with an enemy, and her favored tactic in battle is to engage from a distance.
- Sugar and Ice Personality: In 'sugar' mode most of the time, but drifts into 'ice' mode when sufficiently angered or when her elemental side comes into play (usually both).
- Supernatural Gold Eyes: A telltale sign that her elemental side is in control.
- Superpowered Neutral Side: When her elemental side takes over.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: The girly girl to Jen's tomboy.
- Took a Level in Badass: This topic. That is all.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: Was suspended in a proverbial limbo when her creator went on an extended hiatus from late 2012 to late 2013, with her personal plot Left Hanging. Word of God says she was Put on a Bus.
- With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: When her elemental side takes over her mind Star's destructive potential rises geometrically, but at the price of not being able to tell apart friend from foe and a near-complete lack of inhibitions, lashing out on sheer instinct and posing a danger to both friend and foe alike. She's getting better, though...
- Your Days Are Numbered: The premise of her personal plot.
Valentine Enigmata Necroelle Malevelencia
A Human Alien
from an undisclosed era in the far-flung future
, in an unknown corner of the universe, deposited on Earth in the present due to things going wrong on what should otherwise have been just another day at work. Isn't too happy about being stuck so far back in the past
on a backwater world
, and even less happy to learn that she would need to coexist
with its equally backwards "dominant species"
- A God Am I: Subverted, Vale doesn't seem like she believes in the existence of gods, but boy, does she possess an ego fit for a god. Is verbally (and sometimes physically) abusive, but still expects the very people she regards as "insignificant trash" to go out of their way to meet her whims and demands, or suffer her unrelenting fury, as well as believing herself to always be in the right.
- Alien Among Us
- Arbitrary Skepticism: Despite having witnessed it before, Vale strongly denies the existence of gods, magic and other supernatural stuff. Also continues to hold the notion that Puny Humans are well, puny, despite having witnessed a lot of them wielding all manner of Magic and Powers.
- Berserk Button: Has quite a number of these, but chief among them is that us Puny Humans constantly fail to recognize her superiority and give her her due respect.
- Blood Knight: Is fond of using combat to prove her superiority and put foolish humans in their place.
- Child Prodigy: Is considered this even by the standards of her Higher-Tech Species, subsequently winning her her civilization's equivalent to our Nobel Prize when she was merely in her teens for making groundbreaking inventions.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Sorta qualifies, by virtue of being not human and having No Social Skills Vale often fails to catch (as in, it makes no sense to her) certain cultural trends and behavioral patterns that we tend to take for granted.
- Deadpan Snarker: So much so that she could even give Deus a run for his money in that department.
- Disproportionate Retribution: Her response to any slight suffered at the hands of a human, real or imagined - no matter how small it is, is to demand they make amends immediately whilst making death threats. Nope, nothing disproportionate about that at all!
- Emotionless Girl: Subverted; Vale possesses a perfectly normal range of emotions that any normal human can easily identify with, it's just that when around human characters her range of emotional displays are pretty much limited to boredom and indifference combined with a barely-hidden disdain (default), outright rage, and occasionally - an arrogant smirk.
- Fights Like a Normal: Justified in that she has no Ki Attacks, Elemancy, Functional Magic and other flashy stuff.
- Fish out of Temporal Water
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Made worse by having No Social Skills, which means that she can flare up even over harmless attempts at social interaction due to her mistaking well-intentioned acts as provocations.
- Human Alien: Practically indistinguishable from us appearance-wise, but don't ever mistake her as one of us, but how are we supposed to know?
- Humans Are Annoying
- Immortal Immaturity: Despite being Really Two Thousand Years Old, and a Child Prodigy Gadgeteer Genius, her reasoning capacity and opinions are not too unlike that of a typical 15-year old, which was supposedly the same age at which she gained her immortality.
- Immortality: Was made into a Type II (i.e. The Ageless) as a reward for her contributions.
- Jerk Ass: Subverted. Less of an actual douche, and more of having No Social Skills and possibly combined with Values Dissonance, doesn't make her any more pleasant to deal with, though.
- Jerk Justifications: Easily of the Type 2 variety.
- Little Miss Snarker: Subverted, she's older than she looks at being really two thousand years old.
- Noble Bigot: Alternatively, she might really be closer to this than an actual Jerk Ass.
- Older Than They Look: Is Actually 2000 Years Old, but has remained a teen for nearly two millenia by virtue of being The Ageless.
- Superior Species: No doubt sees herself as a member of such especially when compared to us Puny Humans, although there's a certain amount of Irony to it considering the only power she has going for her is Immortality and high-tech gadgetry, which doesn't seem much when stacked against the other stuff the rest of the town's populace has on display.
- The Bus Came Back: Was retired into NPC status early in Season 4, and has remained so until late into Season 5, when her creator decided to bring her back as a player character.
- The Right of a Superior Species: Played mostly straight in her attitude towards human characters (that is to say, 90% of the cast), but her interactions with The Doctor have shown that when dealing with members of species that she considers to be equal or superior to her own, she has been shown to be capable of far more gracious conduct.
- Too Dumb to Live: Seems to hold the opinion that humans (save for a few) are a very embodiment of this trope.
- You Are a Credit to Your Race: Vale seems fond of (though more likely, she just doesn't know better) using the actions of individuals as a basis for her judgement of their entire race.

- BFG – Of the M3 Browning (M 2 HB Browning .50 Cal varient), and M 3 A 1 90mm Tank Cannon varieties.
- Combat Pragmatist – Won't hesitate to use any weapon at her disposal, so long as her colleagues and innocent people aren't put at risk
- Curtains Match The Windows – Her eyes are the same colour as her hair
- Eagleland – Somewhat Averted, owing to Lucy being not only of an Alternative America, but while she sits on the “Mixed” type; Good-Natured Boisterous Bruiser, she's hardly rude, crude, clueless, obnoxious, or vaguely psychotic, unless you incite her temper, then you get to see that she mixes both “Boisterous Bruiser” elements with “Lightning Bruiser” elements.
- Fish out of Temporal Water – Was pulled from her world in 1945, before being hurled into the present day
- Magical Girl – As a Witch, this is a given
- Magitek – Her big weapons are made from magic power
- Mildly Military – Zigzagged; While part of the Witch Corps of her home universe, and thus subject to few “proper” military regulations, much like “regular” airforce personnel, she is a stickler for certain rules like uniform and conduct around superior officers
- Officeranda Gentleman – Is a role model as a military officer, and was a Father to His Men in her home universe
- Small Girl, Big Gun – Has a Tank Gun as a Sniping weapon (See BFG)
- Stripperiffic – Shades of, since she can't wear a skirt with either of her Striker Unit because it interferes with the Magical Engines, just like any Witch from the Strike Witches universe
- You Gotta Have Green-Brown Hair – Lucy has Green-brown hair, without hair dye
Third Year Students

some caption text
A rather solemn, calm individual who seems to be in control of himself at all times. Gaius is often blunt and to the point but at the same time ultimately a nice person with good interests in mind. He has trouble working with people who don't want to work as part of a team due to part of his past in which a team he was in was killed due to an individual going off and playing hero.
- Deadpan Snarker: More often then not will respond to comments with nothing but a sarcastic comeback.
- Dishing Out Dirt: A user of terramancy, Gaius is able to manipulate the earth around him and use it in a number of ways.
- Genre Savvy:
- Only Sane Man: He usually plays the mediator when people begin to argue.
- Sole Survivor: The only survivor of a mission in which his team mates all died, he was left tied up watching their bodies decompose for four days.
- Survivor Guilt: Despite it not seemingly affecting him, Gaius still is tormented by the fact that he couldn't do anything to save his team mates when they were on a mission.
- The Stoic: Gaius rarely shows strong emotions, he often keeps a straight face on and will react calmly to most situations.
- The Heart: Downplayed, Gaius is often put into a role as a mediator but this is more often then not to save himself from having to deal with arguments that erupt.
high school girl, Jen appears completely normal at the first glance, having no supernatural powers whatsoever. However, her exceptional intelligence and tendency to not get freaked out by the paranormal makes her fit in perfectly in Hyakuji High.
- Asian and Nerdy: Subverted; while Jen does have many nerdy behavioral characteristics she does happen to know martial arts as well.
- Awesomeness by Analysis
- Badass Normal: Aside from her intelligence, Jen has no other powers to speak of.
- Combat Pragmatist: While not as ruthless as some of the other examples here, Jen is nevertheless defined by her willingness to fight in unorthodox ways and rely on dirty tricks that would clearly be thought of as "dishonorable"
- Crazy-Prepared: Jen literally lives and breathes by this school of thought.
- Curtains Match the Window: Oddly enough, it isn't quite natural. See below.
- Gamer Chick: Even posts her own Let's Play videos of video games on Youtube.
- Genki Girl
- MacGyvering: The Trope Namer is actually referred to in her bio, as its one of Jen's notable skills.
- Ms. Fanservice: Played for Laughs; Jen's eccentricity is played up as a Running Gag for her character, such as how she has little qualms about undressing whenever she feels the weather is uncomfortable or when her clothes get dirty, so long as she is either alone or in the company of close friends. Most of them don't react well to it, but Jen couldn't understand why.
- Photographic Memory: Ties into her Super Intelligence.
- Purple Eyes: Believed to be a side effect of her meta-human genes, given that she can take in information faster and in greater quantities than most humans can.
- Suddenly Always Knew That: Whenever Jen needs to pull new skills out of her book, chances are that she's read it somewhere.
- Super Intelligence: Of the super learning/eidetic memory variety
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Jen is the tomboy to Star and Fuu's girly girls.
- Tomboyish Ponytail: Usually keeps her hair down, but sometimes also keeps it in a high ponytail, especially during sporting activities.
- Troll: Right up there with Hinata, aka. Otoha.
- Weak, but Skilled: No doubt most of the metahuman opponents Jen fought against could potentially splatter her in a single hit, but she manages to stay alive and ahead with her skills.
- Wrench Wench
- You Gotta Have Purple Hair: Unlike many examples, she's actually a brunette - she simply dyes her hair.
Ken "Fresh Prince" Takehana
"Hey Gurl ;3"
Role Played by: Burger Of Power
Loud, brass and incredibly obnoxious, Ken Takehana is a transfer student recently added to the rooster of Hyakuji high and, despite being the new guy, he has the nerve to call himself "The Fresh Prince of Hyakuji High"
Unlike most characters in the site, Ken was just a little twerp until, inspired by MANime
heroes such as Kenshiro
, he danced until he became so funky he developed a Stand
. He also stands out as one of the most manly caracters due to the prevalence on Bishies.
Now ready to rock the boat (and the ladies ;3), Ken will not hesitate to turn Hyakuji High upside down!
Jack "Jackie" Argent
"We're in Japan woman! There's no way in hell I'm going near anything with that many tentacles while I'm in this country."
Role Played by: Epicjester
A half-French/Welsh young man from England who came to Hyakuji to learn how to control the power that turned him from a scrawny nerd into the ultimate predator.
- Adorkable: Hmm lets see. Kind, nerdy and can't talk to women. Yeah our boy is adorkable alright.
- Animal Motifs: Wolf (duh)
- Badass: He is a werewolf. This comes naturally to him.
- Bewarethe Nice Ones: He is a nice guy most of the time, just don't push his buttons.
- Big Brother Instinct: He has very strong protective instincts towards those weaker than himself.
- Big Friendly Dog: In his wolf form.
- Big Eater: His bestial side causes him to have a voracious hunger.
- Bully Hunter: Is not impressed when people pick on those weaker than themselves.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He is very whimsical and eccentric, but can also be very focused when the situation calls for it.
- Chefof Iron: A damn skilled baker. He is also strong enough to throw a manhole cover hard enough that it buries itself in a brick wall. This is after it decapitated a demon.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Jack is a bit weird. But is mostly harmless unless he is pissed off.
- Combat Pragmatist: Uses his brain just as much as his great strength.
- Deadpan Snarker: He finds it hard to go a few sentences without being sarcastic.
- Extreme Doormat: While his behavior suggests otherwise. Jack has zero self worth. He finds a great deal of meaning in being useful to others and finds it hard to say no to requests asked of him.
- Game Face: Can cause his pupils and canines to enlarge as well as turning his hands and feet into claws.
- It Amused Me: The motivation for most of his actions. If Jack thinks doing something would be entertaining, then he will most likely do it.Unless his actions cause harm to others of course. Unlike most users of this trope, Jack would never have fun at the expense of someone else getting seriously hurt.
- Jumpedatthe Call: Was overjoyed when he became a Lycan and he has a tendency to jump into situations that he finds exciting.
- Magic Pants: Played with. His clothes transform into a collar whenever he transforms.
- Meaningful Name: Argent means silver in French and he's a half-French werewolf.
- Morphic Resonance: His beast forms are black-haired, similar to himself
- Nice Guy: Genuinely kind-hearted to nearly everyone he meets
- Our Werewolves Are Different: Lets see; The touch of silver turns him back to a normal human, Wolfsbane is toxic to him and the full moon causes him to lose control of his transformation as well as becoming more aggressive.
- Proudto Bea Geek: Damn right he is.
- Super-Powered Evil Side: Has a variation of this with his inner beast, the manifestation of his feral instincts and powers. If he draws to heavily on his powers, he risks it taking over. Needless to say doesnt want this to happen and limits the amount of time he stays in his war form.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: Can transform into either a large black wolf or a eight foot tall classical werewolf.
- Unskilledbut Strong: Has plenty of raw power. In his base human form he can easily overpower any normal human and his war form is capable of dishing out ungodly amounts of damage. But he has little to no combat training and instead relies on animal instinct when fighting.
Jonny (Jonathan) Desmond
Defining character quotes here
Role Played by: Jonny
Self proclaimed as the fastest boy alive, and hailing from the United Kingdom. Jonny sticks out a bit from other characters in that the weird and fantastic was not a daily part of his life before turning up in Hyakuji, and was the only superpowered being he was even aware of before then.
He's transitioned into life at Hyakuji fairly well, and an open mind means he isn't completely caught off guard by things as might typical of someone with his origins (or lack thereof). Typically a Nice Guy
, his manners have actually saved his life on a few occasions.
- Accidental Pervert: Noted by himself and others for having some horrendous luck. Its gotten him the in-universe nickname of 'Jon-ecchi'.
- Artifact of Doom: At one point may have come into posession of one, depending on whether or not it was recently made, or summoned up. Read Deal with the Devil.
- Berserk Button: Don't mess with his friends, don't mess with innocent people, and don't mess with Hyakuji High school.
- Beware the Nice Ones: On the surface, a polite - if not at times clumsy - foreign lad, who'll try and make friends if he can. Has also assaulted over a thousand people when driven insane, and generally is more than willing to kick the ass of villains that cross his path.
- Boxing Lessons for Superman: Well, close enough. Jen's taken to sparring with Jonny and showing him some martial arts techniques.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Sorta. See Deal with the Devil, Knight Templar and More Than Mind Control below.
- Camera Fiend: Part of the school's journalism club, though that seems to have faded out of the active game.
- Curbstomp Battle: His first major fight pretty much ended this way. With him losing mind you.
- Inversely, he's managed to score a few, though only when he's pissed off enough to not care about holding back on an opponent.
- Cursed with Awesome: Semi-literally. Read Deal with the Devil.
- Deal with the Devil: Or rather, the Demon Lord. He summoned up Pazuzu (by random, no less), hoping to get more power so he could fight tougher bad guys, and protect his friends. The item he received wass noted as being cursed making the user obsessed about the concept of justice the more they use its spell. Given that Pazuzu is a deity dating back to ancient Babylonian times, this was not the nice kind of justice.
- Also part of his regular power set, given that he can summon and make contracts with demons. Though its largely offscreen due to impracticality in combat, and having originally kept it secret.
- Determinator: Jonny's not one for giving up, having pressed on through getting stabbed through the chest, suffering pain equivalent to a laser through his brain, and somehow forged a weapon out of sheer will and desperation. On the other hand, this doesn't always work out for him.
- Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Tried it on the island sized Mu, didn't quite work. Shot Kiryu out of existence though, after the man had turned himself into a force of living entropy.
- Dying Declaration of Love: What his 'its not stupid to protect the ones you love' spiel arguably could have arguably been, if he was talking romantically. Lampshaded for really not being the best time.
- Expy: Only admitted to have been based on The Flash, and it shows. Red colour scheme, super speed, seems to have been struck by lightning, a nice person... he's since gotten more aspects to his character.
- ...Only to become one of other characters. Most prominent was Suzaku Kururugi, given they were both brown haired boys with abnormal physical ability, believe in doing good though through some questionable means, and have a pink haired girl as a potential love interest. It was so uncanny it prompted an appearance change.
- Flash Step: Occasionally utilized, such as when he fought another speedster, but doesn't pop up too often.
- Fragile Speedster: Played with. Jonny himself is physically speaking just an athletic teenager, and will still very much take damage, getting him to actually acknowledge it enough to stop what he's doing is a different matter. That being said, the damage he has from wounds will eventually get to him, as there's not much arguing with your body when it literally cannot continue.
- Freudian Slip: If he hasn't gone and landed himself in some compromising position, this has probably happened.
- Glass Cannon: Tied to Fragile Speedster. Jonny can hit hard if he wants to. Its just taking hits in turn can be something of a problem.
- The Hero: Won the 'Zack Fair' award, which is for the most heroic character.
- Honor Before Reason: Played straight due to his status as The Hero, almost to the point of appearing as The Fettered.
- Knight Templar: In the Justice RAEG plotline, he became utterly obsessed over Justice, and more specifically, bringing it down on the 'Red Lions' criminal organisation. Anyone who didn't help or stay out of his way, he was more than willing to pummel, leading to over a thousand innocent people hurt by his hands.
- Lightning Can Do Anything: Implied to be the origin of his powers, though its not actually stated outright.
- Marshmallow Hell: Suffered(?) this when Cerium 'rewarded' him for getting her handbag back from a thief.
- Mega Manning: Sorta inverted. One of his abilities is sharing his powers with other people, giving them the same abilities, until he either gets too tired to continue, or takes them away.
- More Than Mind Control: What Pazuzu eventually did to him, culminating in the Justice RAEG plot. Whilst not a typical example in that Pazuzu himself did not actually ask Jonny to do anything directly, he effectively turned the kid into an insane criminal, by choice. The point was brought up by Youma, and part of why Jonny is even a free man is determining to what degree his normal moral faculties would have allowed his actions.
- Official Couple: After ages and a season finale, Jonny finally confessed his feelings to Selene. Time will tell how successful the relationship is.
- Ordinary High-School Student: Says that with more people around him with powers, he has actually felt more like this in Hyakuji than at home.
- Out of the Inferno: Done by transforming into none other than AbaRed!
- Not What It Looks Like: A Running Gag at this point. You could get drunk taking a shot for each time it happens.
- Photographic Memory: A side effect of his high speed perception abilities.
- Power Glows: Jonny's 'speed aura', which appears in the usage of his powers, and particularly as he goes higher with them.
- Power Trio: When piloting Hyakuzor, he forms one with Katy and Seth.
- Forms a second one with Star and Damon.
- And with Deus and Emiko, though as friggen Super Sentai. Add Bran to make it a quadruple.
- Right for the Wrong Reasons: What his deduction about how a drug ended up Cerium's bag turned out to be. But then, how was he supposed to know it was dropped by accident, rather than on purpose?
- Ship Tease: For a long time he was teased with a number of characters, most prominently Selene and Yuki.
- Super Speed: His theme, as far as powers go. Has some, but not all, of the required secondary powers.
- Summon Magic: Specifically, he can summon demons, having memorised a spell from class.
- Taking The Living Sword: Did so for Selene, to protect her from Creed.
- Thou Shalt Not Kill: One of Jonny's biggest rules for himself. Gets a bit troublesome when one considers how dangerous his powers are, and that he doesn't immediately know where the fine line on how much an enemy can take is.
- True Companions: Mainly with Yuki, Selene, and Seth.
- Up to Eleven: What using the River City Ransom mp3 does for him, using the strength amplifier to increase the physical force with which he runs. Its fast enough even Jonny himself can't wholly keep up with what he's doing.
- Will They or Won't They?: With Selene. So far looking like They Do.

- Berserk Button: Has quite a few ranging from harming or hurting his girlfriends to his messing around with the city he was born in, which leads to…

- Cool Bike: His Machine Tornador, complete with the ability to transform into a hovering craft when needed.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Can be somewhat of a ditz at times.
- Cursed with Awesome: During the latest story arc, Hajime begins to have second thoughts whether his Agito powers are really helpful to himself and the city he loved at all.
- Expy: As his character image might suggest, he has almost every bit of Akina Izumi in him.
- Gender Bender: Later on, like Kouta before him, Hajime discovered somewhat to his horror that his Agito powers also includes the ability to change his gender, uncontrollably at first. Hilarity Ensues.
- Henshin Hero
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: During one of the many Arcadia related missions, Hajime was impaled in the back out through to his chest by several solidified blood spikes.
- Kamen Rider: First appeared as an original Rider-like character, Kamen Senshi Denshi. During the Kingdom Heart Crisis arc onwards, he gained the powers of Kamen Rider Agito.

- Technical Pacifist
- Understanding Boyfriend: To Hinata and Hotaru’s earlier… special conditions.
"Please, punch Masaru in the face for me when you'll find them."
Role Played By: Sota
Daughter of a Japanese karate instructor for a dad and an Italian doctor for a mom, Aya lived a pretty normal life until she turned twelve when she was introduced by her mother to a self-cultivated form of power known as "Metabolic Control", allowing the user to gain superhuman ability by accelerating their biological function, namely their metabolism. When her mother was transferred to Japan, Aya also moved as well, where she found education in Hyakuji High, involving herself in the various adventures and misadventures while also trying to live a regular schoolgirl life.
- Ambiguously Brown: Averted. Her darkened complexion is purely the result of going for frequent tans, which she happens to enjoy. The one time a botched teleport bleached her of her tanned complexion she was clearly not pleased with it.
- Action Girl: Can throw down with the best em'.
- Boisterous Bruiser: Whenever she's in her accelerated state using her powers.
- Charles Atlas Superpower: Her ancestors in her mother's bloodline discovered the secrets of metabolic control, and have passed down said discipline since the middle ages. Her profile doesn't exactly elaborate on whether said abilities can be developed by anyone as long as they get the proper training, or that it purely runs in the family via Superpowerful Genetics.
- Healing Factor: One of the perks granted to her by her accelerated metabolism. As long as her powers are active she heals faster; combined with also granting her with Super Strength, Super Speed and Super Toughness it pushes her close to the domain of The Juggernaut.
- Lightning Bruiser: She can hit as hard as she can move fast.
- Mystical White Hair: Subverted. She wasn't born with white hair, and part of her profile suggested she had dark hair at birth, but a side effect of her metabolic control ability resulted in a complete loss of hair pigmentation.
- Power Dyes Your Hair: Subverted; while her hair turned from dark to white upon the awakening of her metabolist abilities, said transformation appears to be a one-time, permanent change.
- The Quiet One: In her baseline state.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: The first sign of Aya's powers going active is when the irises of her eyes change from their normal deep blue to bright red.
- The Worf Effect: Despite her status as an Action Girl who's quite a Bad Ass in her own right, in many of the threads where Aya has seen combat she's spent more time being on the receiving end of punishment rather than the giving end. Fortunately for her, she can take it.
"Wait! Do you mean like, 'make sure he stays safe' take care of him, or 'get rid of him' take care of him? Seth!"
Role Played by: Sujin
Yuki is your run-of-the-mill, happy-go-lucky kid meets girl-next-door
. She transferred to Hyakuji her second year of high school after an unfortunate family tragedy
, but you wouldn't guess that were the case by her happy disposition
. She loves making others happy, and it's a wonder that her player didn't make her ability the Care Bear Stare. With her guardian Nora and best friends in tow, there's bound to be some form of comedy wherever she ends up...not to say there isn't some drama lurking around the corner
- Bad Dreams: The main way Yuki has been seeing flashes of events occuring regarding the Raksha Lords.
- Broken Messiah: Appears to come down with a case of this trope in the JR plot when Jonny tried to strangle her when caught in the grip of his Knight Templar madness, but held himself back from striking Selene. This made her come to the conclusion that Selene probably meant more than "just" a friend to Jonny - despite seeing the corporate heiress as a more worthy match for Jonny, she still couldn't understand why she felt bad over this. Combined with her truckload of self-worth issues, one can already see where this might take her...
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Not quite stupid, clearly not insane. But quite hard to predict at times.
- Cowardly Lion: Yuki's certainly far from being one of the bravest characters on the site. But if her past adventures have shown anything, it's that when push comes to shove, as long as she puts her heart and mind to it she can easily be just as courageous as her more heroic companions.
- Cute Clumsy Girl: Her clumsiness rarely results in injury, but it can set off a chain of disasters.
- Cuteness Overload: Yuki finds herself often unable to ignore anything that falls into the realm of "cute," whether it's a kitten in a store window, a stuffed animal, or an adorably-made keychain.
- Deceased Parents Are the Best: Yuki loses her parents and grandparents in a Heroic Sacrifice they made saving her and the other people of the town against an unknown enemy. And of course, this final battle was your typical Dying Moment of Awesome as would only be appropriate for our protagonist's family members.
- Determined Expression: She's been known to sport this every once in a while, although it's usually in more comedic situations such as cooking lessons, shopping trips, or aiding in a school fundraiser (example cited in Season 3's matsuri festival when she worked at the Cosplay Karaoke Cafe as a waitress, hellbent on helping her beloved school). However, she doesn't quite get herself a shoutout as a Determinator due to the fact that if she overanalyzes a situation, she can be easily discouraged. If she gets riled up enough (such as during the Season 3 thread involving the counter-prank on Kaimu) she can get rather plucky, but this only occurs when those closest to her are threatened.
- The Ditherer: Overlaps with The Insecure/Submissive and Empathic type.
- The Fool: When she is able to contribute to a fight, it's usually by accident (and incidentally comic relief). It should also be noted that out of all the battles and fights she's been associated with, she has come out virtually unscathed. One example is of her nearly dropping a rifle and firing the gun in an underground weapons factory thread which ended up working as a threat to their captive.
- Friend to All Living Things: She will give anything the benefit of the doubt that they are able to do good and are not inherently evil...until proven guilty.
- Genki Girl: Although she's not as extreme to the point of reader annoyance, it's likely that she's fueled by all the sugar she eats. It's not often that one sees her tired, and witnessing anything other than her usual bubbly self is generally cause for concern.
- The Glomp: Her signature move, though it's generally reserved for her closer friends. (Strangers get enthusiastic bows)
- Heroic Self-Deprecation: Sometimes gets her own self-esteem issues due to her inability to help out in any meaningful way when her companions are fighting, until things get dire and she feels that she just has to do something; although her lack of fighting prowess of her own meant more often than not someone had to end up Taking the Bullet for her, making her feel like she's The Load many a time.
- Hypercompetent Sidekick - AKA Nora, Yuki's winged cat-like guardian. Often feeling like her charge is a lost cause, she dutifully watches after her and as of the beginning of Season 4, pretty much does all the fighting in battles (and by pretty much, I mean she does). One might even consider her a Chessmaster Sidekick despite the fact that she tries to coax Yuki into giving her offensive commands to help prepare her mentally for her own fights in the future.
- I See Dead People: Literally. She sees dead people.
- I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Wishes this for Jonny and Selene, or at least so she tries. Cue Broken Messiah overlapping with Love Hurts.
- Insecure Love Interest: Yuki often compares herself to Selene and is thoroughly convinced that her small-town Japanese ways are far inferior to those of the high-class corporate heiress, thereby making her an unfit match for the boy in question. An example of this would be prom, when she literally tried to convince herself she was an unworthy competitor in a potential relationship.
- Instant Costume Change: When Yuki personifies her different spirits she inevitably has a costume change. What kind of magical girl would she be without one?
- Ironic Name: Another way of reading Yuki is "courage"... and she's hardly one of the bravest characters, lacking the insane determination or preternatural calm that her True Companions take for granted. When push comes to shove however, a Dare to Be Badass or You Are Better Than You Think You Are can inspire bursts of Heroic Resolve in her - albeit only temporarily; see Cowardly Lion above.
- Kindhearted Simpleton: Let's face it, at times, Yuki's pretty dumb. Although some things go flying over her head, she makes up for her lack of knowledge with a heart of gold. This also means she's gullible.
- Last of Her Kind: As shown in her backstory, in a single night she lost both her parents and grandparents - pretty much her entire immediate family. While it gets mentioned from time to time that she has living relatives (supposedly receives her allowance from an aunt) it remains to be seen whether they are on her father's side of the family tree (thus bearing the Tsukiyoru name) or her mother's. But even if one assumes the former, chances are is that they are not considered the main branch of Yuki's family; making her effectively the last known living Tsukiyoru shrine keeper.
- Love Hurts: And how! Overlaps with Broken Messiah, as shown above.
- The Medic: She takes on healing abilities that can be used on anyone but herself via her transformation and channeling of the kami Sakunabikuno.
- Miko: Yuki volunteers at the local shrine. It's also handy since she gets the opportunity to use the grounds for spiritual training.
- Magic Is a Monster Magnet: This recently became an issue during her personal plot in Shin Season 4 when, due to her increase in magic levels, she popped up on the radar of more menacing spirits and demons. Most notably, some ancient demons (the five Raksha Lords) that had been trapped by an ancestor surfaced from the building site of the old Tsukiyoru shrine, and now the five demons are hot on Yuki's trail.
- Out of Focus: Her creator admits that due to her at best sporadic RP activity, it would be virtually impossible to commit Yuki to any site-wide events or personal plots. She takes it in her stride by limiting her mostly to one-off roleplay threads that are not connected to any ongoing plots. Partially manages to avert Chuck Cunningham Syndrome by allowing her to make occasional cameos as an NPC played by a fellow roleplayer, thus putting her under this trope.
- The Pollyanna: Despite the fact that she lost her entire family in a single night, she remains strangely optimistic. It's left to be seen whether or not there's something beneath her perpetually-smiling facade, or if she's so wound up in denial that she has actually become the mask she's hiding behind.
- Poor Communication Kills: Of the Cannot Spit It Out variety. For someone as outspoken as herself, Yuki's ironically reserved when it comes to her innermost feelings, primarily out of empathic consideration towards the feelings of her friends, often choosing to keep her fears and worries bottled up instead of confiding in them with her True Companions, or finding a positive outlet for them. Her treatment for any negative feelings that comes her way is to Think Happy Thoughts, and put on a smile. It doesn't take an exceptionally Genre Savvy viewer to anticipate that sooner or later, all of it is going to bounce back at her. With a vengeance. Which could only mean drama is looming over the horizon...
- Rose-Haired Sweetie: An almost by-the-book example of one, no less.
- Ship Tease: Involving something of a not-quite-launched-yet Love Triangle which hopefully doesn't end with her punking out and holding in her (as of yet, underdeveloped) feelings due to her overwhelming concerns regarding her friendship and strictly-platonic love for her roommate, Selene.
- Sweet Tooth: While she's able to stave off the pounds with a rocket-speed metabolism, you wouldn't think the small girl could single-handedly polish off a dozen doughnuts by herself without batting an eyelash. Fried foods and other treats are also devoured by her. Not quite a full-fledged Big Eater.
- Third Wheel: Or at least sees herself as such in the now-developing (but not yet confessed) romance between Jonny and Selene, which is the primary factor leading to her bout of Broken Messiah.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: With Selene - but heavily subverted, as both girls are girly as they come in their interests and disposition. Yuki however comes across as the girly girl of the two - generally reserved when it comes to her feelings, is usually nervous and indecisive when confronted, and highly emotionally-sensitive. This stands in contrast to Selene's tendency to wear her heart on her sleeve, generally assertive and decisive personality, and ability to be blunt and straightforward when needed.
- Touched by Vorlons: Yuki had an initial training session with Terado which allowed her to expand her power limit from "essentially useless" to "almost useful."
- True Companions: With Seth Ryouga, Jonny Desmond, and Selene Frostfire.

Enhanced Vanguard Automaton (EVA)
Role Played by: Sophia Antistita
Pictured: How Everyone Sees Eva
Eva, as she is known, is a rather confused and innocent gynoid who gained sentience from being merely the prototype of a line of gynoid weapons developed by the US Army. After her escape, she sought refuge in Hyakuji due to it being far from her place of "birth" and being notably accepting of the strange. Being a weapon troubles her, though her tendency towards innocent behavior quickly made her well-liked by multiple characters, even a few of the Jerk Ass
sort. Steadily enough, she has learned how to interact with people and has developed into quite the sweet The Cutie
to many, even dealing with romantic attention in some cases.
- Beware the Nice Ones: No matter how adorable she is, she is still military hardware and has the potential strength, and familiarity with nearly any form of weaponry, to be dangerous.
- Blank Slate: Began as this, but the variety of positive influences on her, such as her "adoptive family", increasingly develop her into a sweet and innocent girl who wishes to be more than a weapon.
- Break the Cutie: Was very nearly Driven to Suicide by Simon Morris's attempt to do this on behalf of her creators.
- Children Are Innocent: Eva is 2 years old and proportionally unfamiliar with most of the world.
- Emotionless Girl: Has had a very difficult time understanding how to behave or how to interpret the behaviors of others, though is gradually learning the nuances of emotion.
- Grew Beyond Their Programming: Her becoming sentient.
- Humanity Is Infectious: Explicity learns behaviors and is strongly influenced by what she observes in other characters.
- Made of Iron: Titanium alloy, actually!
- Parental Substitute: Found one in Yuzuki Saito, though does have a true "mother" of a sort, and a sister who is also a robot.
- Robot Girl: Was originally designed as military hardware by the US Army.
- Rousing Speech: Retroactive case, was saved from the aforementioned Break the Cutie attempt by one of these she'd received previously from multiple other characters.
- The Soulless: Explicitly revealed to lack a soul, which leaves her unhappy at times.
- Super Prototype: Is the prototype to a line of combat gynoids, and has proven more formidable than her production model "sisters", as well as having been the only model to have attained self-awareness.
- What Measure Is A Nonhuman: Struggles with this.
- Younger Than They Look: Eva attends high school and blends in well enough (barring her obviously mechanical parts), but is only 2 years old.
Amaterasu, Mariko Akane
Click here to see Sailor Sol
- Action Girl - As Sailor Sol (See Henshin Hero below), and as herself through muscle memory, Mariko can hold her own in a fight, though it's more Sol's side of things
- Beauty Is Never Tarnished - Averted. Sol's injuries transfer back to Mariko and vice-versa
- Beehive Barrier - Sol's defensive attack takes the form of this thanks to her shout-out to the Guren Mk II (See Shout-Out below)
- Bi the Way - As evidenced by her Fangirl ways at the Muskateers Christmas Party
- Blessed with Suck - Despite having her powers, Mariko has faced some pretty bad things as a result; Kidnap and torture for one (See More Than Mind Control below).
- Broken Bird - Thanks to Zylor, Mariko is quite afraid of male "hero" types. Thanks to Jonny and Ikki, she's partially over this but it may resurface again later.
- Curtains Match the Window - Matching red hair and eyes, and they're natural too
- Damsel in Distress - Unfortunate incident of losing her powers in the middle of a fight against Yoma (See I Owe You My Life below)
- Deer in the Headlights - When facing down a rather large Yoma after the loss of her powers, needless to say if it wasn't for the intervention of Jonny Desmond, she'd be dead by now
- Depraved Bisexual - Shades of. Her first reaction to seeing Jonny shirtless? Commenting on how "sexy" his body was, while trying to prevent the oneset of an explosive nosebleed.
- Fangirl - For Yuri and Hetro stuff. She also seems to be immune to the bloodloss this causes with Nosebleed and Overdrawn At The Bloodbank. Also see Shipper on Deck below.
- Genre Savvy - Has demonstrated this in regards to JRPG's in the Nanashi no Game rumour, identifying a lot of aspects that didn't seem to fit the apparently 8-bit era game.
- Henshin Hero - Like any Sailor Senshi, Mariko transforms into Sol when using her powers
- I Owe You My Life - With Jonny. He saved her life when she lost her powers and was facing a giant Yoma that was trying to kill her.
- In the Name of the Moon - Invoked like any self-respecting Sailor Senshi on the side of good and Justice.
- Magical Girl - As a Sailor Senshi, Mariko falls under this classification.
- Meaningful Name - Mariko's last name, "Amaterasu", is that of the Shinto Goddess of the Sun. Sailor Sol is the Senshi of the Sun.
- More Than Mind Control - Attempted by Zylor through kidnap and torture to break Mariko and make Sol serve him.
- Mysterious Past - While Mariko's origins are known, Sol's memories are fragmented and quite hidden with more returning as time progresses.
- Nose Bleed - Often overlaps with Fangirl, which has made several of these, including two of the "explosive" variety.
- Overdrawn At The Bloodbank - Happens along with Nosebleed quite frequently.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning - Averted in that Mariko and Sol both have red eyes regardless of if they're being nice or mean.
- Shipper on Deck - And how! She ships her friends with each other (Except Jonny/Ikki, she's no Yaoi fan) as well as with herself.
- Shout-Out - Sol's right arm and the form of some of her attacks are a Shout Out to the Guren Mk II and its upgraded forms of Code Geass fame
- Wave Motion Gun - Two of Sol's attacks are this thanks to the Guren shout-out.
- Wrong Genre Savvy - Mariko's deduction as to Jonny's actions against the Red Lion organisation was this.
Fourth Year Students
Defining character quotes here
Role Played by: Lawman
Heiress to the rich and powerful Frostfire family, Selene is the site's resident Ojou
. She comes from the United Kingdom, and runs the local branch of her family's company. She's descended from the Eldar, elves that are residents of the Elemental World, and she was sent to Hyakuji as part of her training to Save Both Worlds
if she ever needs to. Since then she's had to fight off just about nutball that has threatened her new home, whilst remaining prim and proper.
- Action Girl: Despite her appearance, Selene is trained in Krav Maga, a real life form of self defense taught to Israeli Commandos.
- Badass in Distress: Has become this for the [J] threads with the WDA. Trust us, the only reason she didn't kick her kidnapper's ass herself is because they had a Human Shield.
- Bare Your Midriff: The Dryad summon, as well as the Valkyrie summons after the latter ditches her armor.
- Barrier Warrior: One of her minor used abilities is the ability to create a mystical barrier up to 20 feet around her.
- Battle Strip: When push comes to shove the Valkyrie summon can opt to ditch her armor, complete with a change in fighting style from a Jack of All Stats to a Glass Cannon that overlaps with Fragile Speedster, bumping up her Super Speed by a couple notches but in the process throwing away her defenses.
- Beware the Nice Ones: The reason the above statement under Badass in Distress can be said with quite some certainty, is because Selene is the master of both a Valkyrie and a Wyvern, despite being one of the nicer characters in universe.
- And as of her recent upgrades, add a Dryad, as well as a Golem that is for all intents and purposes a Magitek Mini-Mecha to her list of summoned guardians.
- Blood Magic: The source of Selene's powers - she makes her required seals with her blood.
- Bodyguarding a Badass: Selene's usually accompanied by armed bodyguards hired by the Frostfire Family. Not that she actually needs them, though.
- British Stuffiness: Averted to hell and back. Selene is one of the kindest and most humble characters on the site.
- Heroic RROD: Her 'Acceleration' power allows Selene to bypass most of her limits, but over usage in one day could lead to her death.
- Instant Awesome, Just Add Dragons: Selene's Wyvern is the more powerful of her two summons, and if its out in combat, not a good sign for her opponents.
- In the Blood: Descended from elves, which makes it a really good catalyst for magic.
- Kung-Fu Wizard: See Action Girl entry above.
- Magitek: The Geisinian War Hulk, a combat golem, is effectively a magitek Mini-Mecha.
- Mighty Glacier: Selene's Wyvern summon fills in this role; subverted however when the Wyvern goes airborne, becoming a straight-laced example of a Lightning Bruiser.
- The golem summon plays this trope completely straight and overlaps it with More Dakka.
- The Ojou: Probably the richest character on the site, given that her family fortune measures into the billions. Generally a type 1.
- Onee-sama: Is often times this to Yuki, one of her best friends.
- Squishy Wizard: Averted, while reliant on summons and wards as her primary form of magic, Selene isn't as frail as her appearance might suggest, see Kung-Fu Wizard and Action Girl above.
- Stiff Upper Lip: Manages to remain calm and composed - at least on the outside - when she's been kidnapped.
- Summon Magic: Her main power set.
- Swiss Army Weapon: The Valkyrie summon now wields a claymore that can also transform into a magical shotgun with an oversized bayonet.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: With Yuki - but heavily subverted, as both girls are girly as they come in their interests and disposition. Selene however comes across as the Tomboy of the two due to her tendency to wear her heart on her sleeve, generally assertive and decisive personality, and ability to be blunt and straightforward when needed. This stands in contrast with Yuki's generally reserved and tight-lipped tendencies when it comes to her feelings, is usually nervous and indecisive when confronted, and highly emotionally-sensitive.
- Wave Motion Gun: Her golem summon has one that overlaps with Chest Blaster as its Finishing Move. The Valkyrie summon also has a weaker, Sword Beam variant of this trope, which is often referred to in-narrative as Excaliblast-lite.
- White Mage: Her summoned Dryad fulfills this role, being capable of healing and providing defensive buffs to Selene and her allies.

Role Played by: Fin
(In-game Depiction)Ordinary High-School Student
, but with an extraordinary blessing
, and yet at the same, curse
of being infected with a bio-engineered virus
like none other. Designed to have a 100% mortality rate on those whom it infects, for reasons unknown the virus instead formed a symbiosis with Seth's body, and gained sentience as well.
- Anti-Hero: Starts off as a Type I, and has developed into a Type II.
- Battle Butler: To Selene Frostfire
- Blood Knight: Justified by V's nature as a viral killer.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Tends to displays shades of one when not in a life-or-death situation. A notable instance was in one thread he actually first took notice of the fact that a drink vending machine got broken in a fight, instead of the more obvious sight of Aya fighting against a hulking demon.
- Cradle of Loneliness
- Cursed with Awesome: The side effects of The Virus? Super Strength and toughness. Sounds good? Well, if you discount the fact that it's still unknown when The Virus will kill him.
- Deadpan Snarker: V. And how!
- Emotional Bruiser: Oh hell yes; overlaps with Bruiser with a Soft Center as well.
- Genius Bruiser: See Guile Hero below.
- Guile Hero: Of late Seth is becoming more prone to solving problems via wit and diplomacy instead of choosing to Megaton Punch it into submission. Doesn't mean his combat abilities have suffered though.
- Healing Factor: Another boon bestowed onto Seth due to the symbiosis with V.
- Kid with the Leash: To Youma, and as of recent, Cassandra.
- Lightning Bruiser: Thanks to possessing Super Strength in a conveniently small frame, Seth can not only pack one helluva punch, he can also move at speeds that would register as little more than a blur to untrained eyes.
- Knight in Sour Armor: Appears to be slowly drifting into this territory, but given some of his present company and recent experiences, it might not be surprising...
- Made of Iron: Seth can really take it and keep on coming.
- Martyr Without a Cause: Youma and a few others have repeatedly called him out on his self-sacrificing attitude at times, saying that one day it could be the death of him. They may not be wrong...
- Nice Guy: Seth's normal personality when not under V's influence.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: Normally a somewhat goofy Nice Guy, but even before his development into a Guile Hero Seth has clearly displayed Hidden Depths in the form of being pretty perceptive and intelligent when needed be, such as how he tricked The Architect into securing a contract that grants him control over the villain's pocket universe. And not to mention being one of the WDA's leading investigators to boot!
- The Lancer: The Anti-Hero foil to Jonny's Ideal Hero.
- The Pollyanna: He does seem a little too cheerful at times for his own good. While Character Development is slowly diminishing this aspect of his personality, it remains to be seen if it would ever completely go away.
- Slasher Smile: Seth often shows this in battle when under V's influence
- Super Strength: Under V's influence Seth can push his body well beyond the limits of human ability to attain said ability.
- The Unfettered: Not Seth, but V. "If there's one thing the metavirus is incapable of doing, it's holding back. And he's definitely not holding back in this at all."
- The Virus: That would be none other than V.
- Spell My Name with an "S": He started with his name spelled 'Seth Rouga'. In the next season, he's named Seth Ryouga.
- True Companions: With Jonny, Yuki and Selene
Erin Lynette Oasella
"A lot of the books I read here...well, the prevailing theory seems to be that nature and humanity are intrinsically opposed to one another. Of course, I know that's not true. I wouldn't have this power if that were the case. None of us would."
Role Played by: Erin
Generally one to avoid the limelight, Erin Oasella is an aspiring researcher who would much rather spend her time in a library than on the battle field. In the rare situation where she is called on to fight, she tends not to pack much of a punch physically, but shows an aptitude for tactical thinking
, which is somewhat counterbalanced by her tendency to panic in tough situations
. She shows the personality of a plain and kind girl-next-door. Being mature for her age, most of her friends were upperclassman who have since graduated, leaving her with few friends left in school as she moves into her junior year. However, she still spends plenty of time with them outside of class.
- Actual Pacifist: The thought of hurting anyone at all makes her nauseous. When forced to fight, she restricts herself to blunt attacks instead of sharp ones so that she doesn't draw blood.
- Taken Up to Eleven in fact, as her pacifism extends even to everyday life. Quite noticeable during her birthday party at Damon's house, where she showed a strong aversion towards video games with combat and violence, such as when Lavender and Kage were playing The House of the Dead 2, as well as the Card Games example below.
- Barrier Warrior: Her Soul Weapon is named Aegis, and it takes the form of three large shields that move autonomously to protect her or anyone else she wants. She can also create shields out of densely compressed air.
- Blow You Away: Erin is an Elemancer, specifically an Aeromancer. She attacks by slowly compressing and then quickly decompressing large amounts of air.
- Break the Cutie: During the inVERsion event, she was taken over by the Orange Materia and, in her corrupted state of mind, turned her vastly increased power on her friends. It was eventually stopped by forcefully shutting the materia down - but by that point, it had become integrated with her body and removing it caused her excessive pain. The emotional damage from nearly killing her friends lasted for months after the incident, and won't ever fully go away.
- Broken Messiah: (See Break the Cutie above) Played straight by Erin in the aftermath of inVERsion. Although attacking and hurting Chizu and the others was due to being under the influence of the Orange Materia, part of her couldn't deny that it was her desire to become like Chizu that the Orange Materia played on to influence her actions, something that she simply couldn't stop beating herself up over.
- Card Games: Made it to the final match in the Yu-Gi-Oh! tournament using a stall/mill deck. She never declared a single attack.
- Flight: She achieves this by encasing herself in a cushion of compressed air and carrying herself around with her powers.
- Friendly Target: The events of inVERsion spurred practically the entire Elemancery Club to deeply hate whoever it was that sabotaged the Materia.
- Friend to All Living Things: (See Actual Pacifist above) Her Pacifist tendencies don't merely apply to humans and humanoids, or even sentient life. As long as it's a living, breathing creature she would very much prefer to opt for a non-violent approach. Only non-living entities such as non-sentient constructs and The Heartless are exempt, but even then due to her lack of combat aptitude she would very much prefer to play a support-based role in the heat of battle, providing tactical assistance to her allies instead of directly engaging the enemy.
- Genius Book Club: You can usually find her in one of three places: Hyakuji's School Library, the Scryptorium (Arcadia's Library), or on the first floor of the Wind Tower, reading books on Elemancy off of the bookshelf.
- Hard Work Hardly Works: It's not like she doesn't train hard, especially after she dreamed of becoming like Chizu, but despite all her efforts to try to master combat-based aeromancy she couldn't overcome her aversion towards harming others, and hence all attempts made by her at learning combat techniques ultimately proved fruitless. See it here.
- Heroic Self-Deprecation: Her self-confidence has been an issue for a long time, mainly due to the fact that she tried to involve herself in big fights for the future when she really wasn't much of a fighter. In the big fights of the earlier seasons, she generally didn't last long, and her Break the Cutie moment didn't help either. However, she's been encouraged both by Jameson and by her friends at the Elemancer Club, and seems to be getting better about her self-esteem.
- Nice Girl: She is a plain and generally likeable girl, and sometimes appears to be a little out of place on the battlefield.
- Poor Communication Kills: One of the important lessons she came to learn in the aftermath of inVERsion, was that keeping quiet about her feelings didn't help matters any, and realized that it was her feelings of jealously towards Chizu that the Orange Materia played on. In a conversation with Kaede, she admits that she should have learned to be more open with her feelings rather than keeping everything bottled up.
- Sensor Character: By sensing the air around her, she can sense the positions of solid objects by the shapes of displaced air, up to pretty impressive ranges, making her kind of a human sonar. She's generally more useful for this than for her meager offensive capabilities.
- Skilled, but Naïve: Her book smarts, keen eyes and Sensor Character abilities give her the potential to be a tactical genius of considerable caliber, but between her Actual Pacifist tendencies and her tendency to get sheepish when faced with danger thus far prevents her from realizing her full potential in this regard.
- Squishy Wizard: Erin's pretty much right up there with Star when it comes to having a glass jaw constitution, thus far appearing unable to take any form of physical abuse without passing out.
- Teach Her Anger: Another valuable life lesson for Erin in the wake of inVERsion. In the same conversation with Kaede, she confesses feelings of hate toward whoever masterminded the incident, and a desire (although being only herself, it made her queasy to think too much or too long about it) to hurt whoever was responsible. In the process, she also comes to acknowledge that being only human afterall, she was also capable of feeling anger and hatred, and that it was foolish of her to keep such feeling bottled up instead of finding an outlet in naive hopes that they would simply go away if ignored long enough.
- Teen Genius: Due to private research being a hobby of hers, and the vast amount of information on the supernatural housed within the Scryptorium, Erin has extensive knowledge in many supernatural fields of study - to the point where she can explain the inner workings of Functional Magic despite not actually being a Magus.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: With Chizu
- Took a Level in Badass: What Erin desired when she began idolizing Chizu, trying to train herself to become more like the person she worships. Then came the Orange Materia and everything goes wrong. Horribly wrong. After the resulting storm from the aftermath of inVERsion calmed down, she eventually comes to accept that this path wasn't quite meant for her afterall.
- Wind is Green: When she uses her powers, the air that she is controlling turns a greenish hue. It's actually just a coincidence, though - green was a color that reflected her personality, and also happens to be her favorite color.
- Yank the Dog's Chain: And again, inVERsion. Prior to that, you might think Erin was slowly developing on the right track, slowly picking up combat skills, and generally gaining more confidence and personal courage in the process. Then inVERsion happened. The aftermath wasn't pretty to say the least.
- You Are Better Than You Think You Are: "Your only weakness is your lack of confidence in yourself." -Jameson B. Willicott
- Also agreed upon to be her fatal weakness by Lavender and Damon, as well as most of her other friends at the Club.
"That's right...I am Chizu Yamamura. Don't underestimate me."

WORK IN PROGRESS

Role Played by: Pierrot
- Beware the Quiet Ones: Outside of fights he normally is calm, In battle Bran likes hurting things a bit too much
- Blade on a Stick: Habod o' Babd is one of these
- Combat Pragmatist: Decides that rather than wait, it would be best to stab THROUGH his ally to get at the enemy
- Cool Shades: Needs them to protect his yellow eyes
- Creepy Crows: Guy has a whole fricken motif going
- Divine Parentage: More like great-grand parentage, but still
- Fragile Speedster: Most of His power comes from being fast and having a long stick to poke you with so HE doesn't get hit
- In the Blood: The Source of Bran's Powers are his ancestry to a welsh Goddess of Crows and War
- War God: Bran is descended from one
- War Is Glorious: For a pretty calm nice kid, when he smells blood he starts spouting prose about his love for it
- Weaponof Choice: Bran wields a glaive that has spilled the blood of generations of warfare
- Speaks Fluent Animal: Only birds from the family Corvus though
- The Dreaded: This applies more to his weapon than he himself, it does have the ability to call upon peoples worst memories and fears after all
wa Saito Yuzuki!"
Role Played by: Pancake Mix
A traditionally Japanese, highly affectionate and motherly senior student. Yuzuki treats every other character with respect and love, at times subtle, others overt. She conducts herself as a dignified, soft-spoken young lady, and tends to pull through a situation via kindness over force. A notable example in the Hyakuji plot was respectfully treating the Big Bad
of Season 4, the Machine King, with such kindness and forgiveness that the plot's resolution changed, and "Kitagawa Yuuki" as she named him has remained a background character played by the admin since. Her writer has fretted that she stole the spotlight of that season finale ever after, however.
- All-Loving Hero: Oh, where to even begin... Loves the entirety of existence, has taken the Bodhisattva Vow, believes that everyone and everything is linked together as one, actually changed the intended resolution to the Machine King arc through kindness, explicitly has a pure heart, is favored by nature spirits to the point where she can manipulate earth, and has a small suite of abilities that focus on serenity, inspiration, and hope. Her "true power" is stated to be the Power to Inspire Others.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Wouldn't hurt a fly normally, is sweet and loving to virtually everybody. Absolutely terrifies multiple characters, though it's worth noting that most such instances are of the "afraid of making mom mad" variety, though Ian Vaner is genuinely afraid of her for other reasons.
- Cuddle Bug: Offers hugs freely and frequently embraces others, though has to try and remember at times to respect personal space.
- Cuteness Overload: Played for laughs, has at times apparently derived sensual pleasure from cuteness alone. Most of the time though, she simply immediately reacts to anything or anyone cute by getting maternal.
- Embarrassing Nickname: "Princess (Edo)", given to her by [[Tomboy Mina]] and Jin. She gets depressed at the mention of it. The latter also sometimes refers to her as "Princess Funbags", and any mention of THAT one tends to reduce Yuzuki to a flustered, sputtering wreck.
- Enlightenment Superpowers: Her "Eight-Fold Magokoro" ability is explicitly a pure heart along with a steady approach to becoming enlightened.
- Gag Boobs: Has an unspecified-size chest that is deliberately ridiculous in size as an intentional parody of anime cliches, and also to give other characters an easy way to tease her. Deconstructed somewhat, in that Yuzuki is NOT happy to have them, as she feels her lessons of loving everybody are inhibited by the implication that it's easy to be loved when you're good-looking.
- Kimono Is Traditional: Technically, a furisode. But otherwise fits the trope to a T as Yuzuki is almost always seen in traditional Japanese clothing, with the school uniform being one of the rare contemporary outfits that she owns.
- Love Freak: Can go a bit overboard with her occasional speeches on love, and has a sometimes-difficult time understanding that people of the same gender usually just can't feel certain types of love for each other, being bisexual herself.
- Silk Hiding Steel: Wears a furisode whenever not required to wear the school uniform. Not only out of modesty, but also because Yuzuki is highly traditional. Where this trope comes into play is that she's also a trained onna-bugeisha (female samurai) specializing in iaijutsu, though it bears mentioning that she takes her training seriously mostly just for the sake of exercise and out of respect for family tradition.
- Spoiled Sweet: Unusually for an anime-themed RP site, Yuzuki has a loving family of her own who regard her as a darling heiress to the family name. While rarely brought up, she even asked for and received a pet horse for one of her birthdays, and "Shiki-kun" in theory allows her to engage in mounted combat. She's had a fairly easy life, all in all. Played with a bit, as she at times worries that her lack of hardship alienates her from others she'd want to help.
- Team Mom: Fills this role deliberately, having unofficially adopted multiple characters. Acts the part too, including bringing a basket of home-cooked food along with her often which she offers other characters. This and her All Loving Hero traits listed above are arguably the very core of her personality.
- The Fettered: Her devotion to nonviolence and commitment towards peaceful and loving ways easily make her one.
- Yamato Nadeshiko: The origin of her "Princess (Edo)" nickname, boy howdy does she fulfill it.
- Yandere: An infrequent joke, "Yanzuki" tends to appear if someone is treating someone who loves them cruelly or callously, or if her adopted family is causing/in trouble.
- Yaoi Fangirl: Is this behind the scenes, a secret shame of hers, as she thinks of love that transcends cultural boundaries very highly.
"The second we're alone, is the second we're most vulnerable."
Role Played by: The Captain
One of the elemancer instructors of Hyakuji, Damon Ark seems to exist solely to screw with the minds of people who believe darkness has no place in the world. in complete contrast of what one would expect from the orphaned shadowmancer, he constantly works to protect people. His powers stem from a powerful familial line that was tied to elemental beings born from nature itself. after a decade of being alone due to the extermination of his family, he came to Hyakuji and found a home he could protect and be protected by. He cares deeply for his home, and intends to protect it and the friends that now make up his family

- The Fettered:
- Glass Cannon: He can make some very destructive attacks when he wants to, but so much as look at him and he might be knocked down.

- Henshin Hero: Slowly developing into this after creating his own Rider Gear
- In the Blood: Part of why Damon has powerful Elemancy.
- Like Brother and Sister: Chizu and Damon, to the point where they're grossed out by anyone suggesting they're involved romantically because it feels like incest.

- Moral Myopia: Doesn't suffer from this himself, but fears this happening to the city's inhabitants.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: When his powers are active, his eyes become red.
- Save the Villain: He is FAR more willing to save them than fight them

- Technical Pacifist: Damon refuses to kill, but has no issues with beating an enemy to within an inch of it's life.

Role Played by: Nickle
A graduate of Hyakuji High, veteran elemancer and a longtime resident of the eponymous city, and one of the instantly-recognizable faces to many a veteran of Hyakuji. Formerly teaches in the Martial Arts class, and when not engaged in his usual heroics he's usually spending time tutoring elemancers at the Elemancer Castle, running the now-famous Abenobashi Arcade in downtown, or just spending quality time with Chizu. Has a cousin (on the paternal side of his family) by the name of Cerium, whom he lost contact with long ago when she moved to China, but in relatively recent times has moved over to Hyakuji where she now takes residence in his house.

- Battle Couple: With Chizu.
- Beware the Nice Ones
- BFS: His signature weapon, Kaneryuu is one; at least in its current incarnation.
- Chivalrous Pervert: Has toned down on this considerably ever since he found a Love Interest, (beginning with his First Love Celestial, then subsequently Chizu) but old habits die hard.
- Enlightenment Superpowers: His Storm King form was unlocked as a result of spiritual training with a sect of monks.
- Enemy Within: Used to have to contend with an alternate dark personality by the name of Kinclex.

- Meaningful Name: "Nickle" is a play on "Nickel", which is a component in dry cell (Nickel-Cadmium) batteries. Batteries produce electricity, Nickle is an electromancer...
- My Greatest Failure: The death of his First Love, Celestial Lewis along with their adopted daughter Sugar. While he's long since gotten over it, there was a time when memories of the incident really haunted him.
- Shock and Awe: Nickle's primary power set, and among the player characters with similar power sets he's pretty much considered the master of said element.
- Super Mode: His Storm King form, which basically allows him to transform from flesh and blood into an Energy Being made of living lightning.
- Action Girl
- Authority Equals Asskicking
- Badass Teacher: You don't wanna mess with her students. Overlaps with
A Father to His MenMother To Her Men; likewise threatening her Arcadian subordinates in any manner is also a BAD idea.
- Bare Your Midriff: In most training/sparring topics. Averts Stripperiffic however, since in actual combat topics Lavender is always appropriately garbed.
- BFG: Borrowed a Barrett M82A1 anti-materiel rifle during an event for use against Mecha-Mooks.
- Blow You Away
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Co-leader of Arcadia, former field commander of GLADIUS and trained by special forces? Not that one can tell by looking...

- Elemancer Packing Heat: Carries conventional firearms on top of her powers, and is good at using them as well.
- Expy: Of Caster, at least where appearance and general choice of casual outfits are concerned.
- Fights Like a Normal: While Lavender's ability as an aeromancer might be considered second to none (if not an equal to) other than Chizu, she seldom breaks out sophisticated aeromancy techniques right off the bat, and often is seen using Good Old Fisticuffs and firearms.
- Green Eyes
- I Know Mortal Kombat: Once attempted an Izuna Drop, which is a move right out from a videogame.
- Meaningful Name: Lavender is a shade of violet, and guess what's her hair color?
- Mentor Archetype: To younger characters who need guidance and counsel. Is notably a confidante to Chizu in this regard.
- Otaku: More specifically the anime and military sort. One of the reasons behind her being a Bunny-Ears Lawyer.
- Pointy Ears
- Purple Is Powerful / Supernatural Is Purple: When using her powers, any surrounding air under her control glows with a lavender-colored hue. And she's also one of the most formidable aeromancers to date on the site too.
- Razor Wind: To the point they can rival an Absurdly Sharp Blade in their potency.
- Real Women Never Wear Dresses: Averted. For all of her Action Girl-ness, outside of combat Lavender prefers skirts and dresses by far.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Usually, though she is still not without her prejudices at times.
- Super Speed: Learned how to ride her own jet streams to move around at inhuman speeds courtesy of Chizu.
- Sweet Tooth: Is often seen with ice-cream, Pocky, candies and other sweet treats when not fighting.
- Wrestler in All of Us: Is fond of mixing Professional Wrestling/MMA moves into her CQC bouts.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Natural purple hair. Need I say more?

"This plan is insane. Based entirely on random luck. There are 500 different things that can go wrong. I'M TOTALLY IN FOR THIS!"
Role Played by: The Captain
The science teacher of Hyakuji High. What kind of science? Whatever he feels the students need to learn. Having centuries to learn how the world works let's him have some unique insight in multiple areas...
Vielle of Lacrima
"I refuse to lead such an aimless life. If I cannot find meaning within myself, then I shall find it in others."
Role Played by: Erin
A knight from the world of Rune-Midgard
, who ended up in Hyakuji due to Multiverse Shenanigans (tm) during the Kingdom Hearts
arc. She betrayed her lord for love, and was then abandoned by the man she gave up everything for - having nothing left for herself, she decided to devote her life to teaching others, not to atone, but merely to give meaning to her existence.
- Absurdly Sharp Blade: There isn't a whole lot that the Muramasa can't cut.
- Action Girl
- Badass Normal: Has no actual powers of her own, although she does rely on a slew of decidedly non-normal weapons.
- Dark and Troubled Past
- Evil Weapon: The Muramasa, a cursed sword that drives its wielders into bloodlust and insanity. Vielle suppresses the curse through sheer force of will in order to use its power without sacrificing her mind.
- Failure Knight: Though it's more towards the school as a whole as opposed to a single person.
- Heroic Sacrifice: For her love interest, who never came back for her despite the fact that she made it through alive.
- Heroic Willpower: Two of her four weapons would drive a human insane just from picking them up. One, the Evil Weapon Muramasa, and the other the Blade of Atroce, which normally turns the wielder into a wild raging berserker. Not Vielle, though.
- Improbable Aiming Skills: Subverted; one of her weapons is a crossbow made with the bones of a sacred hawk, and is almost as powerful as a modern-day sniper rifle...except Vielle's training was mostly with melee weapons and she can't aim out to even half its maximum range.
- Lady of War
- Luckily My Shield Will Protect Me: Though most of her weapons are two-handed, she does have a magic shield as well.
- Made of Iron
- My Greatest Failure: Betraying her lord and casting aside knighthood to join the Eyes of Darkness, because she was in love with its leader, who she was later abandoned by.
- Named Weapons: All four of them have names; The Elemental Blade, The Blade of Atroce, The Muramasa, and the Gastraphetes.
- Nerves of Steel
- Playing Against Type: Somehow ended up as an assistant teacher for Cooking class.
- The Stoic: To the point that it borders on Extreme Doormat.
- Turn Coat: See My Greatest Failure
- Summon to Hand: Can recall all of her equipment instantaneously via Kafra Storage
- Super Strength: When wielding the Blade of Atroce
- Your Approval Fills Me with Shame: From Kotoko. "Vielle...GJ."

history teacher of Hyakuji High. Yes, really
Role Played by: Nickle
Cousin of Nickle Ryuko, and while both had known each other for as long as they could remember, her arrival in Hyakuji was in fact the first time the two cousins had ever seen each other in person. It didn't take long however, for it to become clear that they easily saw eye-to-eye with each other on many things and got along well. Currently putting up at her cousin Nickle's home, and for a time found work at Hyakuji High as the school's physical education teacher.
