* TakingTheBullet: Much like Caitlyn's ultimate of LeagueOfLegends fame, Final Payment is a very long-ranged channeled attack that fires projectiles at a target that can be intercepted. However, the major difference is that it is not just one bullet, it is a whole barrage. While it means that it is very easy to spread the damage across multiple targets, meaning the attack had little effect, the multiple hits can trigger her recently granted passive, which deals more damage after consecutive hits.

* FragileSpeedster: Tess' main selling point is her ability to hop on board her weapon and drive it to her location of choice, allowing her to roam and reach fights quickly.
* GlassCannon: A ranged carry. Most of her damage comes from the burst of abilities and her true-damage passive going off all at once when she enters a fight.

* FragileSpeedster: Has a sprinting ability with a passive permanent haste buff to step up her movement speed. This is also supposedly the Spirit of Pursuit's specialty in general.

to:

* StoneWall: Despite being labeled as a "Backline Support" due to her healing abilities, health costs and health scalings generally mean that good Viyanas end up with a ton of health, and then usually defenses to go on top of that. She does have to stand still for the duration of her ultimate, after all.

Added DiffLines:

* DarkerAndEdgier: When Kindra is present in the story, whatever's happening divulges into heavy mature themes. In some cases ''immediately''. Her first appearance in the chronicles has her seducing a man, then reappearing barely panels later after having killed him. And her audio lore has her in the process of murdering a bound and gagged man. Links to some of her written lore came with express warnings about the themes of sex and violence that ensue that never happen so explosively anywhere else.



to:

* PunchedAcrossTheRoom: His ultimate sends his target flying back, through other enemies, and if they hit a wall they smack right into it and take more damage.
* SpinAttack: Has this game's resident constant spinning attack.


* ActionGirl: And not just in the context of the game either. Mikella's whole arc seems to be based on her breaking away from her status as a figure to be married off for money, and to be respected as a business partner in the eyes of her father, Duke Anzerani.
* GlassCannon: A ranged carry's natural archetype, which Mikella inherits.

* WindsOfDestinyChange: Minor, and more as an interpretation of what her powers actually are. With the Vitality of Fortune, Mikella quite possibly also has improved luck, as in "good fortune".



* MightyGlacier: Has no mobility to speak of, but boy is he big. He also passes as some sort of caster tank, meaning he also specializes in laying down some damage from relative range.



* AnythingThatMoves: She is a thrill seeker even in this sense. According to her, she's slept with members of her crew, even the ones she didn't like.

Added DiffLines:

* JackOfAllTrades: Most Bruisers are already quite versatile, but none represent Dawngate's gameplay design philosophies about versatility better than Cerulean. If there's a role, he can do it. If there's an item, he can use it. Initiator? Tank? Roamer? Support? Jungler? Damage Dealer? Cerulean's capability covers all the bases.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceGuy: There's not much to Kel you couldn't say within a few words, but nice is definitely one of them. And not the pushy kind of nice either. His gentle nature would, according to WordOfGod, allow him to be one of the rare few people who can get along well with [[spoiler: Freia. Even so much as to make her look up to him as a father figure.]]


* MerchantPrince: Anzerani's wise investments and ruthless decision making make him the richest man in the west. In a region where [[MerchantCity making money is of the highest value]], this basically makes him head of the Western area.

Added DiffLines:

* ChickMagnet: If you go by his visions, Zalgus has three potential love interests. Even Zeri shows an attraction to him.


* WinterRoyalLady: Kind of. Though in either case, her developmental name was "Snow Queen", and the developers directly cite {{Film/Frozen}} as the inspiration for her design.

Added DiffLines:

* TheBaroness: In her previous life, she was married to a Baron. Her lore suggests he may have had a motive to kill her, as the announcement of her death also includes a remarriage.


Added DiffLines:

* LittleGirlsKickShins: ''"Anyone who calls me Dolly gets punched in the kneecap."''

Added DiffLines:

!!Lillin, the Old Guard
''The ancient tombs of Sunar stand in among the vast eastern steppes, guarded by blood-Shaped holy warriors of swift aspect. Exiled for the heresy of love, Lillin, her infant son, and the Spirit of Divinity found peace among the folk of the heart.''

* ActionMom
* ArmorPiercingAttack: Lillin's greatest strength is having ''two'' ways of punishing defences. She has passive upgrades and an ult that come close to stripping targets completely clean of magic resistance. Think that means you should build health instead? Lillin's spells deal bonus damage based on bonus health, so that doesn't work either.
* OurCentaursAreDifferent: These centaurs appear to be more stone and plant-like than a fleshy half-horse half-human. That, and being described as 'blood-Shaped' implies they were made, not born.

!!Duke Anzerani

The greatest merchant prince in the west. Father of Mikella, Petrus' employer, and the man who funded Eidolus' project to create the Dawngate.

* TheManBehindTheMan: He's not a shaper, but through the events of the chronicles gains a few under his belt, some of which have even gone on to make connections with even more shapers. Ever since the Dawngate opened, he's been mobilizing to gains as much control and profit from this event as possible, and consequently some Shapers are fighting the fight for Anzerani's gains.
* MerchantPrince: Anzerani's wise investments and ruthless decision making make him the richest man in the west. In a region where [[MerchantCity making money is of the highest value]], this basically makes him head of the Western area.

Added DiffLines:

* [[spoiler: NarratorAllAlong: As revealed at the end of the Origins video.]]


* MechanicallyUnusualCharacter: Kensu's basic attack does not abide by the usual attack speed timer. Rather, it is determined by the meter above his head. Its rate of recovery is reliant on his haste, and when it reaches one bar, his basic attack is ready. His arrows can be double-nocked by waiting until it goes to two bars, allowing his next attack to fire both shots one after the other in quick succession. This double attack has unusual interactions in order to make it work, such as the fact that both arrows are fired at the same speed all game round, regardless of whether or not your attack speed is faster than that rate.
