** Melfonseana was also deeply affected by the same event that traumatized Gettemhult, eventually developing a severe case of SurvivorGuilt believing that she was directly responsible for [[spoiler:her sister's]] death. As a result, she began clinging to Gettemhult and become an ExtremeDoormat as a way of coping with her personal failure.

* ThereAreNoTherapists: Like the game, a non-insignificant number of characters go through some pretty traumatizing stuff, almost all of which involve the loss or death of a loved one. Pretty much all of them except [[spoiler:Echo]] come out worse because of it, including Gettemhult (who was so traumatized by [[spoiler:the real Melfonseana's]] death that he turned into an AxCrazy BloodKnight) and Theodor (who was so traumatized by [[spoiler:Ulc's]] death that [[spoiler:he also becomes AxCrazy and begins to seek mindless revenge against the Darkers, a trait that Luther easily exploits for his advantage]]).
