* BrutallyHonest: Thyra has little to no verbal filter, which makes her consistent attempts at diplomacy nail-bitingly frustrating for Dave.



* NiceShoes: Acquired a pair of swamp-resistant high heels after an encounter in a haunted cobbler's mill. While Dave also got some spats, Thyra's are undeniably nicer.

* PetMonstrosity: He’s half pig, half fish, with the helmet of a mercenary instead of a face, [[ItMakesSenseInContext armoured internal organs]] and the heart of a dead elf. His skin is vile to the touch and he makes some pretty weird noises. But he’s the TeamPet anyway.

* DespairEventHorizon: Judging from NPC chatter, Sigmund was slipping closer and closer to it over the course of Return to Arbello. Whether he falls over the edge completely depends on if the party gets to him in time.

* SurvivorGuilt: Sigmund was the only known survivor of the troglodyte invasion of Arbello castle. It doesn’t come up often due to his generally jovial and rakish demeanor but sometimes after a few drinks Sigmund displays certain signs of this. [[spoiler: Something he's working on, following the revelation in Return to Arbello that this was not his failing, rather due to a sneaky sleep-draught from Vlad]]

Born and raised on the Halfling isle of Scir, Dave was told many incredible stories by his retired Barbarian Great Aunt Tilda. Seeing the same passion for adventure Tilda saw in herself she encouraged him to pursue his love of music and become a bard. When he turned eighteen, he set out into the world armed with a handful of plundered dragon gold from his aunt's hoard, his lute and a cute green scarf, looking for something more.

* BadassAdorable: While not capable of physically kicking as much ass as the rest of the party, he can still cast some pretty strong spells to do the job for him. And he looks super cute while doing it.

Added DiffLines:

* ScrewDestiny: The ultimate goal for Polly, who would really rather not become an undying zombie no matter what any malicious cosmic forces have to say about it, thank you very much.


Added DiffLines:

* SanitySlippage: With her deeper and deeper delves into alchemical knowledge and without much reason to try and be 'Good', Bea seems to be losing her grip on both reality and her morals. She hasn't gone ''too'' far off the deep end. Yet.


* AlcoholInducedStupidity: Sometimes. He makes a bit of a fool of himself the evening Cassandra turns up and has told the occasional tale implying it’s happened frequently in the past. The worst (and currently unspecified) incident apparently necessitated him having to leave home and join the army as a young man.

* GeniusBruiser: Fits the trope to a T. She’s over six feet tall and built like a tank, easily hefting a two-handed great axe and charging around in a suit of scale mail. However, she also greatly enjoys reading and the study of literature, spending most of her free time either with a book or discussing them with like-minded people.

* CulturedBadass: Naturally considering her dual upbringing of 'refined young lady from wealthy family' and 'defender of the coast from horrifying sea creatures'. See GeniusBruiser below.

* TagalongKid: Not technically a kid but he fills the same role as one.


Added DiffLines:

* GlassCannon: Now that his spells are steadily becoming more likely to actually work, he's turning into one of these. Fireball in particular can dish out a ''lot'' of damage, but he's just as squishy as ever.

Added DiffLines:

* LanternJawOfJustice: A rare female example.

Added DiffLines:

* QuirkyMinibossSquad: Implied by WordOfGod to be the case with Glanvar's old gang, depending on how many have survived/eluded the law.


* IntellectualAnimal: Myra chose to spend her first downtime between sessions teaching Mimi, her horse, maths. [[spoiler: This was originally deemed to be her clopping her hoof in response to maths questions, but then revealed by a cunning Perception check from Bea to '''actually''' be her noting when people would be most surprised by her answering, and stopping clopping then]]

Added DiffLines:

* MusicalAssassin: From the point of view of his enemies Dave counts. He uses his music to empower his friends, sure, but he can also turn it into deadly shards of pure sonic energy or a wave of rolling drums to shake the earth.

Added DiffLines:

* AccentUponTheWrongSyllable: Bea spends a significant amount of time trying to explain the difference between a [[PrecisionFStrike 'fucking room']] and a 'fucking room' to her, to no avail.
* PluckyGirl: Out of all the girls in B-Team she fits the description the most. She's courageous and upbeat, much calmer and more patient than Delta or Bea and not quite as much of a FishOutOfWater as Rokou.
