YMMV: The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland...
- The Woobie: Oh Saturday. Let's look at what all that poor kid went through. He first watched his family be kidnapped by the Marquess. He himself was captured and locked in a cage, and alludes to her beating him up whenever she wants him to grant her wishes. The only means of defending himself that he gets in those cases is a wooden sword. And he makes it clear that he doesn't like fighting other people, and just wants a quiet, peaceful life. Which September is forced to deny him at the end, when they have to wrestle so he can grant her wish to get everyone to safety. He has no choice but to beat up the girl who saved him. Heck, when a character's first reaction to being sprung from prison is to ask the rescuer "Will you beat me if I say no?", it's safe to say they're a woobie.
