The fabled cursed tome.
----



* {{Heroic Comedic Sociopath}}: Many of Tractie's options in the dungeon can result in harming the citizens of the labyrinth instead of doing good. Sometimes, Tractie can ignore negotiation altogether and murder the person to get the item needed. Other times, Tractie will wait until the person dies before obtaining said item.
* {{Karma Meter}}: Tractie is given one at the very beginning of the game but all it does is either power up pacts that are catered to bad karma or make it easier for the enemy to get a critical hit/gore shot on your puppet. Karma goes up from fighting certain enemies (often the ones that can't fight back or the ones that are considered "good") and doing certain options in the dungeon (often killing instead of negotiating). A Witch Petition is the only way to decrease karma back to 0.

* {{Only Known by Their Nickname}}: Everyone just uses the nickname Luca gave it and call it "Tractie".
* {{Servile Snarker}}: While Tractie can't talk, it can react to situations when given the chance. It is very easy for Tractie to mock Dronya without having to say anything to her (such as taking Neldo's side of the argument).

"Tractie". [[spoiler:Mezzaluca and Newton[=/=]Newt seem to be the only ones who know the name of the soul bound to the Tractatus de Monstrum, i.e. the name the player inputs at the beginning of the game.]] There are also some denizens of the labyrinth who seem to recognize the Tractatus de Monstrum, and thus call it as such.

* SoulJar: [[spoiler:Mezzaluca[=/=]Luca]] binds a soul to the Tractatus de Monstrum, thus creating Tractie.
* SupportPartyMember: While the Witch Brigade are the ones doing all the fighting, Tractie can bolster it by using Reinforcement, which can be replenished by harvesting mana or by returning to the caravan.

* {{Oblivious to Love}}: Has no idea that Fritz has a crush on her despite handing her a ring he made and giving her discounts. She also seems to miss the cue that Neldo might be interested in her despite the huge age gap...

* CassandraTruth: He appointed the death criers to inform them of the people that died each night to the Unclean Ones. However, since he's the only one who remembers the people who died by virtue of keeping constant tabs on them, all the death criers do is serve as an inconvenience.



* {{Keeping Secrets Sucks}}: He's the only one that remembers the deaths of those around him. He's forced to maintain a record of everyone who dies and refuses to stop.
