Suki is the main protagonist of the game, originally the princess and heir of a unnamed kingdom until her adopted-cousin and best friend Cherisa betrayed her and sent her as a prisoner to a kidnapping guild. After an escape attempt, she is given the option to join the guild as their first female member or stay as a prisoner for the foreseable future. She chooses the former and becomes a rookie kidnapper under the mentorship of a highly-experienced (but snarky) kidnapper named Leroy.

* ForcedIntoEvil: More clear in version 1.8, but true in all versions. She had the choice between working for the kidnapping guild or going back to her cell.
* FreudianExcuse: She was betrayed by her cousin / best friend and sold to a kidnapping guild. (In version 1.8, to be kept a prisoner. In older versions, to be sold to slavery.)
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: In the main story of v.1.8, Suki is a MinionWithAnFInEvil, often uncomfortable with what she has to do for her guild, and who has a lot of trouble to impose herself. However, the player can indulge in acts of VideogameCrueltyPotential, all of these actions being in total contradiction with her canon personality.[[note]]For instance, in Mission 6, the player can agree to do a sidequest that involves kidnapping some girls at the beach. [[UngratefulBastard The same girls who helped Suki a little while ago.]] Since the guy pays Suki an advance on the promised reward, you actually have enough money to pay the carriage guy without having to kidnap the girls, so deciding to do it is entirely optional.[[/note]] Also, during the optional minigames of the "Private Cell", she's far more confident and dominant than she normally is. The last one may count as HiddenDepths, but some of her comments remain very out-of-character when she's harsh, derisive or sometimes even slightly cruel.

* TookALevelInBadass: In version 1.8, she becomes progressively stronger and more confident. Mission 6 in general is meant to push her into this, as she's completely by herself throughout the situation and has nobody to help her. Numbers are a crucial part of gameplay mechanics, and alongside her boost in confidence, you are able to learn more skills that make her more viable in a fight against female enemies.
* VillainProtagonist: PlayedStraight in the older versions (especially 1.5), where she is more or less a functional sociopath who shows a clear LackOfEmpathy towards her victims. {{Downplayed}} in version 1.8, where it's more explicit that she's reluctant and forced to do it (as well as having the victims be ransomed off instead of sold into slavery). However, even in this version, she's still trying to kidnap civilian girls for ransom. {{Averted}} with the [[ArtifactOfDoom Maunak Eye]] in Chapter 3 or when she's capturing other criminals like the pirates of Mission 6. Completely dropped during the final missions, [[spoiler:in which she tries to stop Elda's and Lady Krystina's {{Evil Plan}}s]].

Carol is the closest thing the game has for a deuteragonist, she is an orphan thief Suki meets during her mission to Velis Manor (mission 2) and decide to team up by Carol's suggestion due to increased security. After their mission is completed, she decides to join the guild.

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: A minor case, but Version 1.7 doesn't give a clear explanation about the reason why she chose to join the guild after the second mission. In older versions, it was explicitly [[IOweYouMyLife because Suki saved her after she was captured]] and there were several dialogues between Suki and the Guildmaster to discuss her integration. Most of those dialogues were removed in Version 1.7, making the transition rather abrupt. It's implied that her love for bondage played a part in her decision though. This could be because Leroy is the one that explained the situation to the Guildmaster offscreen in the new version, although it still leaves ''her'' reasons to join the guild rather blurry.

Carol is the closest thing the game has for a deuteragonist, she is she's an orphan thief Suki meets during her mission to Velis Manor (mission (Mission 2) and decide to team up by Carol's suggestion due to increased security. After their mission is completed, she decides to join the guild.

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: A minor case, but Version 1.7 8 doesn't give a clear explanation about the reason why she chose to join the guild after the second mission. In older versions, it was explicitly [[IOweYouMyLife because Suki saved her after she was captured]] and there were several dialogues between Suki and the Guildmaster to discuss her integration. Most of those dialogues were removed in Version 1.7, 8, making the transition rather abrupt. It's implied that her love for bondage played a part in her decision though. This could be because Leroy is the one that explained the situation to the Guildmaster offscreen in the new version, although it still leaves ''her'' reasons to join the guild rather blurry.



* ArtEvolution: She started with an engine-included battler design in v1.5 to an original (but still inspired) design in v1.6 to a fully original and detailed one by v1.7.

* DamselInDistress: Carol is introduced as this in both version 1.5, and 1.6. In version 1.8, she's captured midway during Mission 2 and has to be rescued.



* AmbiguouslyBrown: She's one of the few non-white characters in the game but her race (or the equivalent of) is hard to discern.
* AmbiguouslyGay: She's implied to have a crush on Suki, most notably in the Private Cell when Suki talks to her.



* BadassInDistress: She's introduced as this during Mission 6 as Suki as to rescue her from a Manor.



** Several ones were given to her in Version 1.7.
*** She only ordered the guild to lock up Suki, even though she could have her killed just as easily. (Only in version 1.7. In older versions, she ordered them to sell her to slavery, but the guildmaster secretly didn't obey.)

* AdaptationalHeroism: A FlatCharacter and mere enforcer of Cherisa's will in older versions, Version 1.7 turned her into a HeroAntagonist.
* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type 4]], but only in version 1.7. In here, she has been tasked with crushing the illegal operations of the Kingdom's criminal guilds by cutting off their trade routes.
* ArtEvolution: She started with a very crude battler in v1.5 to two updated and better but still similar in v1.6 to a [[FanservicePack fully developed one]] in v1.7.

* JerkassHasAPoint: While having Athena imprisoned was technically unjustified as she was on her side, Athena did have contact with Claude, the leader of the opposition in Ghiaccio. Which means that she may have not been totally unjustified when she decided to preemptively arrest her. However, [[KnightTemplar she didn't give Athena a chance to explain herself before doing it]]...

* AdaptationalVillainy: In older versions, she was just an unnamed MauveShirt that served as a optional flunky sub-boss. In v1.7, she was given an original design, an actual personality and became a foil to the mostly-honorable Marcia by being a CorruptCop [[spoiler:willing to betray Marcia for money and a promotion.]]
