!! Margaret
*RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Elgriffin's red
*WideEyedIdealist: Despite the hostility of the Khurutos and the Harpies, Margaret still believes that peace treaties can be made with both groups. Regardless, [[GoodIsNotDumb she is still an excellent soldier]] and has risen to Vice Commander of the Delphe Knights.
*LadyOfWar: Margaret is a fierce warrior while also maintaining elegance and grace.

!! Brego Williar
*WorthyOpponent: Even though Captain Cliff fought for Serendia, Brego respects his combat prowess.
*MyGreatestFailure: After the Third Valencian Expansion failed miserably, Brego transformed the Ceric Order into the Delphe Knights. He tries to maintain the traditions and values of the former organization.

!! Elgriffin
*CuteBruiser: At first glance, Elgriffin may appear delicate, but Elgriffin is a force on the battlefield.
*RedOniBlueOni: The red to Margaret's blue
*UnscrupulousHero: Elgriffin is willing to to whatever is necessary to succeed. Even if that means wiping out the population of the Khurutos.
*PayEvilUntoEvil: Her response to the hostage situation is to [[spoiler: kidnap the children of the Khurutos and exterminate them all.]]

* DefeatAsBackstory: Crucio was the King of Heidel before losing the war with Calpheon



to:

* ProperTightsWithASkirt: Or rather proper tights without a skirt.

Added DiffLines:

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Its morality lines are....skewed to say the least.


Added DiffLines:

* DefeatEqualsFriendship: The dialogue after fighting the Awakened Black Spirit boss heavily implies that you just fought the Black Spirit itself. Despite losing it says that now you and it are "friends." With quotation marks. And giggles. Not exactly very assuring.

Added DiffLines:

* DealWithTheDevil: As mentioned above, progressing on the main story reveals that the player made a deal with the Black Spirit at some point in the past, apparently exchanging their memories for power from the Black Spirit.

* TheMentor: Cliff saw Jordine's talent for leadership when the latter joined the Serendian military, and took him under his wing.
* ReassignedToAntarctica: Cliff was Serendia's greatest commander, having won several victories against Calpheon, so why is he stationed fighting imps in the middle of Balenos? [[spoiler:Jordine sent him far away from Heidel so he could scatter Cliff's officers and replace them with ones loyal to himself.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SoleSurvivor: When Calpheon set fire to Hidel Castel, Cliff got her out, but the rest of her siblings died, leaving her the sole heir of Serendia.


Added DiffLines:

!! Lord Crucio Domongatt
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Despite having the title of "Lord of Serendia", he's pretty much delegated all responsibility to Jordine as he's more concerned about the welfare of his last living heir Jarette than anything else.

thousands of blocking damage monsters is standard for any MMO character, but between [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman humanizing the monsters]] and having many of the TwentyBearAsses quests whispered into your ear by the ObviouslyEvil Black Spirit, it's clear that the player character is supposed to come off this way.
