    Royal Court 

Queen Cynthia

Sir Aaron

    House Pierrot 

General tropes

  • Arch-Enemy: They are not fond of House Tantibus, viewing them as cold Smug Snakes at best and flat-out Token Evil Teammates at worst. The feeling is mutual.
  • Big Good: For the kingdom of Sinnoh as a whole.
  • Hot-Blooded: Following in the example of their leader Lord Byron, they are very enthusiastic people and it doesn't take much to get them pumped up.
  • Idiot Hero: In comparison to their cool-headed and logical Tantibus rivals, their rashness combined with their penchant for heroics makes them very likely to run headlong into sticky situations while trying to perform noble deeds. A common saying among both their allies and enemies is, "A Pierrot's heart is bigger than his brain." Exceptions include Nando and Cynthia.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: The classic example.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: Low recruitment rates in recent years have forced them to lower their qualification standards a bit. Nevertheless, their rookies and veterans alike make a surprisingly efficient fighting force.
  • Stubborn Mule / The Determinator: They are notoriously stubborn and will stop at nothing to achieve their goals.

    House Tantibus 

General Tropes

Lord Tobias

  • Bad Powers, Bad People
  • Big Bad
  • Broken Pedestal: Nando's once-unshakable loyalty to him started to crack when he realized how far his mentor was willing to go in the name of imposing his reign, and was shattered when Tobias turned all of House Sanguinem into his brainwashed clone army.
  • Dark Is Evil
  • Darth Vader Clone
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones:
    • He loved his protégé Nando like a son, to the extent of continuing to display concern for his well-being even after Nando (reluctantly) left his side and joined forces with his arch-enemy Lord Byron. It should be noted that Tobias' usual reaction to significant failure on his subordinates' part is usually incandescent rage followed by swift execution.
    • To a lesser extent, he is shown to treat his Darkrai and Latios well, though this could just be Pragmatic Villainy at work as they're strong enough to turn on and overpower him if they decide they aren't happy with their accommodations.
  • Mind Rape: His Darkrai has this as an explicit power. He later reveals that years of training combined with constant exposure to Darkrai eventually gave him similar abilities.
  • Pals with Jesus: He has Darkrai and Latios, naturally.
