* YoureNotMyFather: Ashamed and horrified with what kind of a monster her father has become, Charlotte says that she doesn't consider him her father. She does, however, cry out "father" after he dies.

* YoureNotMyFather: Ashamed and horrified with what kind of a monster her father the King has become, Charlotte says that she doesn't consider him her father. She does, however, cry out "father" after he dies.

Added DiffLines:

* AFamilyAffair: Is carrying on an affair with Count Julius, her husband's brother.


* EstablishingCharacterMoment: When her father introduces her to Guts and Griffith, she hides behind a pillar out of shyness. Then, as she follows her father down the stairs, she trips and gets caught by Griffith, causing her to blush. She meets Griffith's gaze for a significant moment before she turns to go. Thus, we know our princess to be a ShrinkingViolet, FragileFlower, TheIngenue, and a NaiveEverygirl who is susceptible to being charmed off her feet by someone who fits her idea of a KnightInShiningArmor.

* FragileFlower: Has a very sensitive personality that makes her dislike soldiers and war. She is even upset by cruelty to animals, and cries easily.



* {{Leitmotif}}: Her introduction in ''The Egg of the King'' is accompanied by the track, ''"L'Amour Impitoyable"'', which first comes in as a sweet, delicate piano solo that reflects her FragileFlower personality and the sense of LoveAtFirstSight between her and Griffith when they meet on the staircase. It comes back again during the hunt when Griffith teaches her how to play the leaf, signifying their growing connection. The title is an ominous bit of foreshadowing about how this ill-fated romance is going to turn out, since it means "Pitiless" or "Ruthless Love".

* ShrinkingViolet: We were first introduced to Charlotte when - [[SelfDemonstratingArticle hey, where is she?]] Oh, there she is: hiding behind that pillar. Anyway, this princess might have all of the riches in the world, but one thing that she doesn't appear to have is a lot of [[NoSocialSkills social experience.]] {{Squick}}ily justified in that her father kept her close to home, commenting that big men and soldiers [[FragileFlower frighten her]] and she even said that she didn't like going to balls and other aristocratic gatherings much. Charlotte came out of her shell when she started interacting with Griffith.

* FragileFlower: Adonis is both physically and emotionally delicate, much to his father's dissatisfaction.


Added DiffLines:

* ProneToTears: Adonis is both physically and emotionally delicate, much to his father's dissatisfaction.


** On the opposite end, the way the King ''internalizes'' Griffith and Charlotte's affair, viewing Griffith as stealing his happiness really has shades of this. Between Griffith explicitly ''taunting'' him on his incestuous feelings for his daughter, and the King growing old and impudent after learning the truth, [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything this may have been the intention]].

to:

* ThePromise: To Charlotte, of not chasing When Griffith anymore. [[spoiler: escapes from Windham, the king promises Charlotte. He didn't never intended to keep it.]]



* YoungerThanTheyLook: The king is probably in his 50s or early 60s judging by his first appearance, as he has a wrinkled face and a receding hairline but has kept his black hair and is otherwise in good health, in addition to being a skilled ruler. Two years after his breakdown he looks as if he is at least 90 years old, having become so decrepit and infirm that he needs page boys to help him walk.

* YoungerThanTheyLook: After his rapid aging, specifically. The king is probably in his 50s or early 60s judging by his first appearance, as he has a wrinkled face and a receding hairline but has kept his black hair and is otherwise in good health, in addition to being a skilled ruler. Two years after reasonably healthy for his breakdown age to begin with. His freak out over Griffith and Charlotte is what causes his body to fall to pieces: just one year later he looks as if he is at least 90 years old, could be mistaken for a centenarian, having become so prematurely decrepit and infirm that he needs page boys to help him walk.


* PrincessClassic: As beautiful, kind, and innocent as any fairy tale princess. Consequently her outfits qualify for the following tropes: ErmineCapeEffect, PrincessesPreferPink, PrettyInMink and PimpedOutDress.

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Even if we admit that Griffith is most charming and subtle, Charlotte deserves some blame for never once questioning the motives of a suitor with obvious political incentive to seduce her, and who unbeknownst to her even assassinated several of her family members (though two out of three deserved it). And she has no idea that now he's practically TheAntiChrist. Oh, ''if only'' she knew!

After being incarnated, one of Griffith's first acts is freeing her from Ganishka's grasp. Since she is the [[LastOfHisKind last pure royal of Midland]], Griffith's plan is to marry her so that he can access the throne legally.
