Mildly Military: Magical Girls are all commissioned officers with all the benefits and responsibilities that entails, but most elements of military discipline aren't enforced at all. Those that are practiced were for the most part already established before the Masquerade fell.
"I hope I never have to see any of my friends die. Or anyone, really."
Ryouko is a charmingly normal girl who happens to have a problem: everyone else is happy, but she isn't. While her classmates are fine living for the sake of living, Ryouko can't overcome that existential certainty that there has to be more to life. Naturally, she finds it as she contracts after a Demon attack. It turns out that Ryouko is intricately woven into the histories and power structures of the Magical Girls, both modern and ancient, and that her ability may be something beyond anyone's imagination. Where this will lead her is anyone's guess, as is how it came about to begin with.
Blood Knight: According to Kyouko. Her assessment at the end of Ch 19 shows that she still is one, and this bears fruit in Ch 26, when she breaks mission protocol in order to punch an armoured alien to death with her bare hands.
Children Are Innocent: She's very quick to assume that things are exactly how they seem, at least up to the point where she has a reason to doubt.
Razor Floss: Using the string attached to the her bolts, with her and bolts being the opposite ends, she can teleport to some other position, while the string still has to travel to Ryouko's new position, near-instantly, slicing everything in its way. Basically an improvised Portal Cut.
Teleporters and Transporters: Has the longest range of any teleporter in existence at 200km, but she needs some grief cubes immediately and is out of commission for some time afterwards. She is limited in that she can only teleport what she's touching and in order to teleport other objects, she has to teleport herself with them. Arrows shot by her arbalest are considered part of her if she chooses to attach strings to them, allowing her to teleport things "remotely".
You Killed My Father: Kyouko's sentiment against the main body Church, because their excommunication was the thing that had driven her father into Pater Familicide. She's silently spitting at them as they, still too proud to beg, "melding" the Cult into themselves and saying that the Cult is a lost lamb that they have to "call back".
Other members of the Mitakihara Four
"If it is your will that I suffer so, if this is what you truly want, then I will continue to protect this world. I swear it."
Long Range Fighter: Type II. She's an archer and a flyer, but by no means does that make her deficient in close combat.
Messianic Archetype: Even though the Cult of Hope only recognizes her as a prophet, the nebulous nature of their actual goddess leads to Homura receiving this level of attention. Then there's the "perpetual suffering in service of the world" thing.
Survivor Guilt: Asaka didn't return under the best of circumstances. After the entire chain of command above her was killed in an alien attack, she was left in charge of the remaining human forces. She saved the colony by sending her best friend Alice on a Suicide Mission. To make matters worse, it was a a mental command. The credit for the victory goes to her, and with it a promotion to Brigadier General and a shiny new medal. Alice, on the other hand, is written off the report. You can't really blame her for being a bit messed up after all that.
Crisis of Faith: Grew disillusioned with Christianity, which from her point of view mostly consisted of isolationist conservatives, including her parents, with the only exception of the excommunicated priest who encouraged her to paint, until he was killed by the demons. Overlaps with in-universe Artist Disillusionment with her painting talents being constricted by stagnant church doctrine. When the Incubator came knocking, her wish was to find something to believe in again, which what got her into Church of Hope.
Minor Major Character: Sayaka. She barely gets mentioned in history and the Very Loosely Based on a True Story movie retelling about the Mitakihara's magical girls' story, her existence is almost unknown, and her portrayal is somewhat lacking for someone who is one of the main character of mother series, even though she was acknowledged as one of the original Mitakihara Four, the (officially documented) main reason of Homura's sudden personality change and her famous obsession of her Goddess, and (Mitakihara Four restricted information) Kyouko's heartbrokenrebound sexes. Justified because she doesn't survive long enough for her name to be famous.
Ryouko's mother. She wants her daughter to stay out of trouble, namely by keeping her from becoming a Magical Girl by any means necessary, including sabotaging the family's funds until Ryouko was past contracting age to lower the chance. She's also a true former Magical Girl, in that she has absolutely no powers anymore. Her experiences as a Magical Girl lead her to start a project the ultimately resulted in clones of each girl being created in case one loses her body but her soul gem is ok.
Dark and Troubled Past: Was not ready for the responsibility of being a Magical Girl and fighting Demons at all. She ends up getting her body destroyed when her sister gets involved on a hunt. Said past is part of what drives her motives to keep Ryouko from becoming one.
Good Parents: Can seem a bit overbearing at times, but she genuinely loves her daughter and has many good reasons to be a bit upset at how things turned out.
Well-Intentioned Extremist: Arguably. She goes to an extreme length to prevent Ryouko from contracting, not to mention the entire clone project...
"Nothing but the best for my daughter, after all."
Ryouko's father. Shares the same goals as his wife in that he does not want his daughter to form a contract.
Good Parents: He may be a bit awkward even at the best of times, but he cares for Ryouko deeply. Even hooking her up with a high-level military prototype implant.
"On this planet, Ryouko is practically all I still care about."
Ryouko's grandfather. Lives with his daughter and her husband.
Took a Level in Kindness: Possibly. Most of the younger Magical Girls think of Kyubey as friendly. Mami supposes that this is because they don't have the context of Kyubey's highly amoral past to work off of.
not to mention that probably only Homura knows exactly what all happened in the past before Madoka changed the magical girl system with him.
"They massacred millions for incomprehensible goals, cthuloid monstrosities striking fear and panic throughout the colony worlds, and even on Earth itself."
