* MercyKill: [[spoiler:By proxy through The Moon to Flek, one of the child in the orphanage she's taking care of. He asked her himself this since he has been brainwashed into an assassin sent to kill her maid Lette and Haaselia herself. Haaselia tearfully ordered The Moon to perform the deed.]]

* RefugeInAudacity: The crew unexpected caught her in the middle of confiding with The Moon in her penultimate fate episode and started suspecting her, so what did Haaselia do to get out of this? [[spoiler:She went full on MotiveRant about her revenge and how she would use the crew as pawns to accomplish her revenge, even [[WeCanRuleTogether offering them]] a place in her empire if they agree to help her and let The Moon attack them when they refuse while she made her escape. After the fight, The Moon stayed behind to explain Haaselia's history to the crew. Somehow all of this worked as they felt sympathetic for her and thought she was breaking from the stress of her revenge. Months later, she sent a letter to meet up with the crew, and appealed to their sympathy to earn their forgiveness and joined the crew, with them completely unaware of her dark plots.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: [[spoiler:The Moon made Haaselia admit she is not object of populace admiration material like her brother, and the things she'd do for the sake of her revenge would only make her look worse, so she needs to use her brother [[HundredPercentAdorationRating Katzelia]] as the face of her Empire and the scapegoat for her dirty works.]]

[[https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Characters/GranblueFantasyHumansAToE Claudia]] can easily see through her act though.

Added DiffLines:

* TamperingWithFoodAndDrink: She acts as poison tester for her brother to prevent this from happening. [[spoiler:Consider Katzelia's gentle nature, it's implied Haaselia volunteered to do this in order to earn favours from her brother for future exploits.]]


* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Used the threat of one as a joke.
-->'''Orchestra Member 1''': You're not what I'd expect from someone born into the imperial family.
-->'''Katzelia''': Oh? Those are words of treason. I hereby sentence this criminal to stay after and continue practicing.
-->'''Orchestra Member 1''': Nooo! That's cruel and unusual punishment!



* WhatsUpKingDude: He was still a Prince back then, but Katzelia didn't demand any formality and considered himself as a fellow commoner when spending time with the members of his orchestra made up of commoners.

* RedOniBlueOni: The outspoken Katzelia appears as the Red Oni in comparison to the his reserved and gentle younger sister Haaselia. [[spoiler:In reality, his ability to listen to reason and his compassion made him the Blue Oni, in contrast of Haaselia who's secretly a cruel person whose personal vendetta make her seek to exploit even her own brother for her goal.]]

* BrokenPedestal: His uncle was the inspiration for Katzelia's to become a musician. [[spoiler:The same uncle is also the ring leader to the conspiracy that led to the death of his royal family, his orchestra members, children experiment and trafficking, and the self-exile he and his sister have to endure to escape with their life. Katzelia and his sister Haaselia made it their goal to overthrow him and return to their Empire as the rightful heirs.]]

* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Was very beloved by the commoners and especially members of his orchestra (which was also composed of commoners). Even in his exilement, the people of the slum where he's hiding absolutely adore and revere him as King, thanks to the things he did for their community. [[spoiler:This is the reason why his sister Haaselia seeks to exploit him by helping him become the Emperor in her place, and seeks to exploit his love for her to become the shadow Empress.]]

* BlueBlood: Some of them were former royalty/nobility before the events that made them into an Evoker. Maria Theresa was an Empress, Katzelia and Haaselia were a prince/princess respectively, Nier was from an old line of wealthy magicians and Estariolla worked as a royal court magician.



* TeenGenius: He was pampered and loved as the pride of his magician family thanks to his prodigious talent in magic [[spoiler:before the event that made him kill his family in pursuit of happiness.]]



* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Not much, but she still helped to keep an orphanage running and wished to earn favours from her father the Emperor to gain real political power in order to do more for the orphaned children. [[spoiler:A shame her uncle turned the orphanage into something more sinister that Haaselia is unaware of.]]

* TheEmperor: His arcana as an Evoker, and fifth royal heir of the Galgenia Empire. Amusingly, he has never been in the position of an Emperor, as he was still a prince before his Uncle's conspiracy forced him in exile. For the time being, he acts as TheGoodKing to the people at his slum as he attempts to reclaim the Galgenia throne as the rightful Emperor.
* FaceOfAThug: He is noticed to have one in ''Grand Blues'' strip [[http://game-a1.granbluefantasy.jp/assets_en/img/sp/assets/comic/episode/episode_1289.jpg #1289]]. Interestingly, his sprite in the flashback gave him a more gentle expression, implying his current face is the result of the stress of being in exile and seeking revenge on his uncle.

** Also a minor one to Niyon of the Eternals. Both are Wind element Harvin musician of their group. But while Niyon mostly keeps to herself and prefers to play music in quiet places, Katzelia loves conducting and performs with people who share his love of music, to the point of assembling his own orchestra.

* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: [[spoiler:The end of his Fate Episode has him realise he's more fit to be a musician than to wage war for the sake of revenge.]] And thus, his skill set has no nuke ability. Both his active and passive skills are composed of defensive skills and buff skills with a some healing to his allies.
* GoodIsNotSoft: The more reasonable one of his siblings, and a TokenGoodTeammate candidate among the Evokers. [[spoiler:That doesn't stop him from becoming a crime boss for the sake of revenge.]]

Added DiffLines:

* IShallReturn: After joining the crew, he made a promise to Thomas, and by extension the slum people, that he will return to them after sorting things out in the Galgenia Empire.
* ImpoverishedPatrician: Granted, the current state of the slum where the exiled siblings living in is already better thanks to Katzelia's efforts, but despite being the King of the slum, he still complains about the quality of the meal served in the slum's canteen (which was able to open thanks to his efforts of bettering the slum in the first place), the same meal which Vyrn commented as tasty enough. Though his complain was not because of his high standard as a former Prince, but because he wants the slum people to taste better quality food, and make them fulfilled enough to eventually consider taking joy in music.
* ItsAllMyFault: He blamed himself for his shortcomings and lack of political interest which led to his and Haaselia' exile.
* KingOfTheHomeless: Katzelia is called King in the part of the slum where he takes refuge in. The slum people called him that because he didn't tell them his real name, but his efforts in teaching and helping the hoodlums get honest jobs and the betterment of the slum earned him their love and respect.


Added DiffLines:

* MisterBig: The Captain, Lyria and Vyrn certainly didn't expect the person the slum people revere as King is a normal [[LittlePeople Harvin]] man.


Added DiffLines:

* TheNapoleon: Surprisingly averted. You would expect a [[LittlePeople Harvin]] character with an affinity to The Emperor arcana as one of this. It turns out Katzelia is far from it, since he doesn't have a height complex unlike [[https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Characters/GranblueFantasyAntagonists Furias]]. Katzelia is also a gentle and compassionate prince who's not afraid to mingle with commoners, and even in his exile, still helps better the lives of the people in the slum he and his sister are hiding in.

* RightfulKingReturns: His ultimate goal is to return to the Empire as the rightful Emperor and dethrone his uncle - the usurper. He originally wanted to do it in a pretty bloody way until his final fate episode changed his mindset to a more peaceful one.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Had his own orchestra which he used for benefits of the Empire. He and his orchestra received praises from his father the Emperor for their performance to pleases leaders of the smaller nations within the Empire and dispelled the gloomy mood caused by the deaths of his royal family members. Even in his exile and thus no longer royalty, he still put efforts in teaching and helping hoodlums of his slum to take in honest jobs and improve the community.

[[spoiler: Both [[spoiler:Both Revenant weapons and Arcarum summons are malicious mystical beings that seek to manipulate their host/vessel. The Revenant weapons are drawn to the Eternals because they are people at the peak of their strength, while Arcarum summons are drawn to people [[DespairEventHorizon at their lowest point of their life]], who are easy prey to their manipulation. Later on, the Eternals resist and reject Revenant weapons' temptation, which silence them from making any further personal contact. Meanwhile, the Evokers manage to cast aside their strife from their earlier Fate Episodes and reforge another pact/relationship with their respective summon.]]



* SympatheticMurderer: [[spoiler: For the Evokers that have killed they [[AssholeVictim usually have understandable]] reasons for doing so though taken too far in most cases, with the exception of Lobelia who has no sympathetic reason for doing so and Alanaan who used immoral reasoning to justify his killings. Nier starts off as sympathetic but gradually veers into unsympathetic territory before taking a complete u-turn into a straight up villain]].

* DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist: [[spoiler: Committed suicide through Death in her Fate episode, [[DeathIsCheap that doesn't stick long.]]]] Also an enforced gameplay mechanic since you have to use Revive/Autorevive on Nier if you want to keep her alive in longer battles.

** FieldPowerEffect: Nier and Alanaan have this ability in their skill kit, due to both of them genuinely believing in the goal of creating a new world based on their ideals. The rest of the Evokers lack this ability because their goals are more personal in nature.
