* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade D; her socks a little below her knees.

Added DiffLines:

* MediumAwareness: Implied. In the bad ending, Kamal will muse about whether or not he and/or Flower Kid could have handled things differently, or if life had an "undo button." In the neutral ending, he outright says "maybe next time's the charm," before [[VerbalBackspace immediately taking it back and wondering what he was even talking about.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SecretKeeper: Becomes this to Flower Kid in [[spoiler:the bad ending, promising that he won't tell anyone that they murdered Habit.]]


* FatherlyScientist: The Carlas refer to him as ‘dad’ and regard each other as siblings.

* RedIsHeroic: She sees herself as a hero and has red skin and a red boxing glove. In addition, she won’t accept Gillis’ mask until the player paints it red because green is “evil”.

* NotSoDifferent: With Habit. She’s implied to have AbusiveParents as he did, is revealed to be missing a tooth when her picture is taken [[spoiler:(Habit’s own biggest insecurity)]], and her name references flowers (Habit’s old passion). To top it all off, [[spoiler: the caption under her picture on Habit’s bulletin board says, "So strong. Little one understands. :-("]]

To top it all off, [[spoiler: the caption under her picture on Habit’s bulletin board says, "So strong. Little one understands. :-("]]


* EveryoneHasStandards: He's not willing to deal with Dr. Habit face to face any time soon (nor is it clear just how much he knew about Habit's true plans) but he doesn't feel right about ignoring the issue completely, given that it's ''very'' likely that Habit could harm others or himself with how much his SanitySlippage has progressed. Despite his misgivings about the doctor, Kamal isn't particularly keen on either of those things happening, so he tries to appeal to Flower Kid's reputation as an altruistic do-gooder to get them to snap Habit out of it without anyone getting hurt. [[spoiler:It's possible to disregard this, as one of the game's endings involves you pushing Dr. Habit off of the balcony, where he falls to his death.]]



* NervousWreck: His introduction? An appearance in one of Dr. Habit's morning announcements, where he appears on-screen just as Habit describes the terrace as as a place where people "stand up high and think about not existing." And indeed, one of his most frequently used sprites has him in a TroubledFetalPosition. A layer of grime on his teeth makes it so that he's hardly able to focus until you manage to brush it off.

* SeriousBusiness: Why did he stop being Dr. Habit's assistant to begin with? Because Habit made fun of his teeth. Granted it was preceded by Kamal bearing witness an inconsolable Dr. Habit having a nervous breakdown, and it's implied that it was not even close to the only instance of Kamal being caught up in Dr. Habit's strange and oftentimes irrational behavior, but compared to his coworkers' reasons for leaving or being dissatisfied with their jobs, it comes across as strikingly petty.

The janitor of the Habitat. He's been living in the walls of the boiler room ever since Dr. Habit gave him a particularly nasty dose of public humiliation, and seems to know all the Habiticians.

* WeUsedToBeFriends: It's implied that prior to the incident with Martha, Habit and Kamal were surprisingly close - even when Kamal makes it clear that he's had enough of Habit for a good while, he seems confident that Habit still has a soft spot and can be reasoned with on some level, and in turn, [[https://66.media.tumblr.com/8ea547f21d479f4b65359bc57854e598/8cb7592d7dc557c2-8a/s500x750/c75164b9e039efc6ef229f765cf59abdff52483f.jpg it's revealed in Habit's final PSA]] that he still thinks of Kamal as a friend. There's also [[HoYay the trading card illustration]] mentioned under the entry for AmbiguouslyGay in Dr. Habit's character sheet.

* AmbiguouslyHuman: It isn't given much explicit notice, in favour of focusing on Habit's very human backstory and motives, but there is something strange about him. Even in a world where vampires exist, Habit is an oddity. He can't be photographed, only showing up as a silhouette with two red eyes and a large grin whenever the player tries. He is very, very tall (second only to Borbra and possibly Mirphy) and has naturally "sharp" fingers that he's complained about on the official Twitter account. He has the ability to 'speak' emojis somehow. And of course, there's the fact that he is ultimately held back by morals instead of physical ability when it comes to [[spoiler: stealing other people's teeth and putting them in his own mouth]] since by the time you meet in person, he's amassed [[spoiler: three rows]] with no ill effects.
