This is the Characters-Trope page for Step City; for general RP tropes pertaining to Step City, and more information the roleplay, please check there.When adding a character to the list, please make sure to add them alphabetically (minus the Faction Head, which is at the top of each folder). I guess by first name.
Our Vampires Are Different: In relation to Remi's Vibe Abilities; he's able to drain other people's vibes. The nickname "Vibe Vampire" and "Vibepire" have been coined.
Intergenerational Friendship: Remi is at least thirteen years older than either of his best friends, and more with everyone else he interacts with regularly. The lack of people around that are his age means that the only friendships he can form are Intergenerational Friendships.
Freudian Trio: Known Out of Character as "Old Mafia". Rémi is the Id, whereas his two best friends, Harold and Phoenix, are the Super Ego and the Ego respectively. Originally a strained friendship between an Id and a Super Ego, Phoenix's entrance greatly strengthened the friendship. Phoenix's death has hit them hard.
Ascended Meme: "Old Mafia", originally an Out of Character Term to denote the Remi-Phoenix-Brown friendship, is now apparently used in-universe. As first used by Sweet, member of the UG.
Vitriolic Best Buds: Type 2 with Harold (The Snark and Sass Dynamic; Remi provides the snark, Harold provides the sass); they are known Out of Character as "Grump Mafia".
Older Sidekick: Harold is the badass, and Remi is Harold's moody, grumpy (and ultimately useless) older sidekick. See "Grump Mafia".
Unwanted Glasses Plot: A literal, extremely hungover quest to have Remi properly fitted with the reading glasses he desperately needed.
Eye Colour Change: His eyes change from brown to purple when he uses his vibe-mimicking or leeching powers.
Glowing Eyes: His eyes glow purple once he's obtained a full mimic.
Messy Hair: Goes hand in hand with Not A Morning Person; he is Wolverine in the morning. Even after fighting it back with a comb, it never stays 100% tidy-there's always a few hairs sticking up funny. One touch and it's usually a mess again.
Not a Morning Person: His first two hours of wakefulness are usually spent sleepwalking, and trying to fight his hair, as well as applying toothpaste to things other than toothbrushes.
Idiot Hair: He usually has a perpetual strand of hair that sticks up from the back. Does not actually denote intelligence. May be a personification of his mischievous streak. Probably just connected to Messy Hair.
Older than They Look: His vibe keeps him so healthy that he has mostly stopped aging since V-Day. Whenever his vibe is running low or otherwise becomes nullified, his body begins to fail as it would with extreme age.
Replacement Goldfish: Although he was highly sexual before, he really didn't start sleeping around excessively or flirting with Steven until after Greg's death.
Parental Abandonment - Probably the root of a lot of his problems, but his parents gave him up when he was an infant and his foster families didn't keep him around long enough to develop a relationship either.
Too Dumb to Live - Subverted in the sense that he hasn't died yet, but he tends to almost gleefully put himself in harm's way, from chasing Mafia members right into their own territory and continually taunting people who could potentially kill him, to always wanting to touch things that he shouldn't be.
