Tropers / Griffin

Griffin is a 18-year old female who enjoys reading and writing. She loves TV Tropes due to its assorted humor, and its lack of blandness. (Wikipedia, I'm looking at you.) She also has a tendency to switch her POV occasionally when typing.

She is very insulted by the Owl Be Damned page. Owls are not creepy! They are adorable! If they scare you, you are being ignorant as to how important they are to our ecology! Griffin also loves collecting owl-related figures, and currently has a drawerful of them. Someday, she'll get a whole house that she can fill with owl-related memorablia.

Griffin also tends to not get creeped out by Nightmare Fuel. Most of it makes her laugh, for some reason. However, anything that does creep her out will probably be very traumatizing to her for a long, long time.

She is on and DeviantART.

Just for Fun: My Personal Tropes


     Archtypical/Tryne PTU 
  • Achievements in Ignorance: Getting lost leads to Vera helping to dismantle a Team Rocket genetic experimentation plot.
  • Asexual: Nira is asexual panromantic, while Letitia is demisexual heteroromantic.
  • The Beastmaster: All trainers are this, of course, but Nira gains the ability to naturally command multiple Pokemon as well.
  • Bi the Way: Vera is bisexual, although she does seem to lean towards girls.
  • The Caretaker: Aria was meant to be this for Nira, by being able to sense her fainting spells and intercept them, and the two of them still have the closest bond.
  • Cast From HP: Letitia's Guts Ability means that inflicting any status effect on her simply makes her attacks more powerful, but she still takes damage from them.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Both Nira and Letitia are this to some extent. Nira is much more impulsive than Letitia though.
  • The Clan: The Palmers are a rather large family, and although some of their children marry out of it, most of the time it's their spouses who marry in, no matter what the gender of said spouse is.
  • Combat Medic: One of Nira's Messiah abilities is the ability to heal, and from a distance as well. Of course, she still runs into battle whenever it's allowed.
  • Critical Status Buff: Nira's Courage Ability means that she gets a bonus to both damage and defense when critically injured.
  • Determinator: Nothing except being overwhelmingly outnumbered/outpowered can force Nira to retreat.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Nira, of the "rocks" variety. She eventually becomes an actual Rock-type as well.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Vera, when backup arrives during the Team Rocket base invasion. She quickly shakes it off, though.
  • The Drifter: Mys, before joining Nira's team.
  • Family Business: Palmer Breeders, which Letitia's family has run for quite a while. While she does want to get recognition for her own fighting skills, she still plans on returning to work there eventually. She's not the oldest, though, so she has some leeway.
  • Healing Factor: Hope knows Aqua Ring, although he's only used it in an official match, and only because his opponent was out of reach. He much prefers just gushing his opponents to a pulp.
  • Hiding the Handicap: Vern is the only human member of the party who knows about Nira's genetic illness.
  • It's All My Fault: Nira blames herself for Anza's supposed death.
  • Journey to the Center of the Mind: Nira and Vern do this with each other in order to unlock the ability to command multiple Pokemon at once.
  • Let Me at Him!: Both Nira and Hope tend to do this. Mys is usually the one to hold them back.
  • Mama Bear: Nira is fiercely protective of all her Pokemon, especially Jewel.
  • Mission from God: Nira eventually ends up being officially sent to destroy the bug god by Terrakion. It also goes along with her becoming a Messiah.
  • No Sense of Direction: Vera can get to places she's seen before, but let her wander and she'll definitely get lost.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: Hope can and will take on anyone and anything that challenges him.
  • The Quiet One: Rori, as mentioned below. Mys and Jewel also fall into this, although Jewel's is more from shyness.
  • The Rival: Hope considers Crim this.
  • Secret Art: Nira can use the Sacred Sword move, channeled through her walking stick.
  • Self-Made Woman: After the bug war ends, Vera starts up her own theater/contest hall. It slowly becomes more and more successful over time.
  • Silent Snarker: Rori is more The Quiet One, but she tends to snark at Hope's overenthusiasm in a rather withdrawn one, with as few words as possible.
  • Spanner in the Works: Vera accidentally stumbles onto a secret garden full of Team Rocket's Pokemon-altering red trees. However, the scientist lady in charge manages to convince her that they're harmless. When she's going home later that night, she is attacked by a giant Raticate and rescued by a policeman who mentions unlawful genetic experimentation on Pokemon. She puts two and two together, and ends up helping with an attack on TR headquarters through that location.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: Hope and Jewel, after she evolves into a Garbodor.
  • Theme Naming: All of Letitia's Pokemon are named after saints.
  • True Companions: Nira and her Pokemon. Her human companions eventually become this as well.
  • Victory Through Intimidation: Nira manages to frighten something trying to control her mind enough that it gives up attempting a mental intrusion on her.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Letitia's is light blue.
