Enforced: "Without someone who is dedicated to heal him, The Hero of this story won't stand a chance against those heavy-hitting monsters. While we're at it let's make her his Love Interest for the Periphery Demographic. "
Lampshaded: "No, please, have mercy on m...wait, you're a female, and you're carrying a big stick? False alarm, guys, she's just a healer. She's not gonna kill us!"
Discussed: The Hero, hoping to learn more about his crush, asks Melody about her choice of weapon. She explains that the Magic Staff is useful for healing and, if she needs to defend herself, it follows her dogma of doing no harm. "I'd rather heal than hurt."
Conversed: "Ever notice how in these RPGs, there's usually that meek and gentle healer girl who ends up with The Hero?"
2) Melody would much rather have taken a more physical role, but because of her society's limited roles for womenWhite Magician Girl is the only way she's allowed to participate at all. She's bitter about this, and it interferes with the calm and compassion required for the job.
3) Melody's healing powers rely on love...but, it's a two-way street. Without love in her life, her power causes her pain, making her cold and distant from others.
1) Only honestly gentle and caring people are eligble for the position and only Plucky Girls graduate from the training. Stepford Smilers are viewed as risky because their mask might break at a bad time.
