* InsufferableGenius[=/=]{{Pride}}: Absolutely gob-smacking ego... and the skill and talent to back it up. He wholeheartedly believes he's better than anyone else. He dislikes this because to him this means that he has to be stuck with peasants and fools all the time, with no equals. This belief is so great ''that he bound it as a wound'' and he derives miraculous abilities from it.

* WingPull / WingedHumanoid: He could sprout wings of blood and feathers, if he was willing to deal with the implications of being able to do that. Due to being a use of his Supreme Invocation ability, he's likely to reveal them very infrequently, or as a resolution to an Issue, thus fitting the trope even more.

* FirstPersonPeripheralNarrator: She claims on the description of ''Fable of the Swan'' that the story's really more about her friends, and that she's the boring one. This can be attributed to her being an UnreliableNarrator.

At a few points she also narrates things that could-have-been, and in some places it's not entirely clear whether they happened and then stopped existing or whether they were delusions of some kind. Once or twice she reluctantly admits she'd been keeping some things secret, as well.

Added DiffLines:

* IneffectualLoner: To the point that some of his ''abilities'' stem from his rejection of friendship. [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration The only way his player can utilize his high initial relationship value with Chuubo is by vocally dismissing the thought that they could ever be friends.]]

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyBirdCameo: First appeared in ''Antithesis 1i: A Diary of Deceivers'' for ''TabletopGame/{{Nobilis}}''.

Added DiffLines:

* HeartTrauma: He tore out his heart to power the sun, which had a number of different effects. He uses sunlight to replace a normal biology, so he can only have emotions or be hurt in sunlight - in darkness he can perform heartless acts perfectly, survive blood loss and chest wounds, and ignore emotional attacks. In case he actually ''does'' get hurt, he can still recover from anything, even death, as long as he's away from sunlight.
