->'''Tower Position:''' Light-Bearer

Baam's first and best friend who freed him from a dark prison, but then decides to leave him to search for a starry sky (aka: absolute freedom). Baam follows her, the plot begins, and awesomeness ensues. Rachel is viewed to be an ugly tomboyish girl who has nothing special about her whatsoever. As a result, she's forced to get by through the words she speaks, whether it be using the truth or through lies. Rachel is also an Irregular, but an unusual one that was not chosen by the Tower. She had actually snuck in thanks to the effort of another Irregular, Baam, when he forced the door open right below her.

In season 1, Rachel is discovered to not be that far behind Baam's arrival on the Floor of Tests after she was summoned into the Tower. She goes by the moniker of Michelle Light to evade Baam after realizing that the two of them are in the same test group. However, they're eventually forced to reunite after her legs had become crippled. So in order to continue being with Rachel, Baam decides to become her legs, and takes a special final 2nd Floor exam with her to make sure that her injury doesn't cause her to fail out of the Tower. In the end, Rachel betrays Baam by showing that her legs are perfectly fine, pushes him into the dark abyss at the last second as she goes on to complete the final 2nd Floor test with everyone else.

The season 1 epilogue reveals that Rachel was forced to watch Baam complete Headon's 1st Floor test that she didn't have the will to do, and as a result, she believes that he took everything that was meant for her. Headon makes a deal with Rachel that if she does a favor for it, she will become the actual heroine of the story. Headon provides his Akryung minion to help Rachel through the initial tests, and teams up with Yu Han Sung to make sure that Baam does not make it beyond the Tower's 2nd Floor.

!!Rachel in Season 2

In season 2, Rachel continues to climb the Tower, and manages to escape Koon watching over her since she knew that he knew about her betraying Baam. Rachel would then form a new team of her own, and infiltrates the Workshop Battle to take control of Emile; an intelligent chatting bot that she uses to manipulate certain Tower events to her liking. Her team would then board the Hell Train in order to gain a powerful ally in White, a FUG Slayer who had been sealed away within the express. Rachel then journeys to the 43rd Floor of Death in order to obtain a Thorn weapon of her own, and even manages to convince Wangnan to join her group after his Tangsooyook team failed in taking away one of her teammates.

On the Floor of Death, Rachel's plan is thrown out of wack after the FUG Slayer, Karaka, forces himself into the group in order to support White's resurrection. Rachel manages to get away from Karaka in order to reach Baam, but is unable to convince him to run away after Baam reveals to her that he needs to continue going forward since he not only knows about Arlen Grace's existence (who Rachel knows about), but also has a new goal other than just continuously chasing after Rachel. Despite that, Baam allows Rachel to take part in the test that will provide the location of the Floor of Test's Thorn, but she ends up getting poisoned and knocked out during said test. However, Baam makes a deal with the Great Family leader, Po Bidau Gustang, to have her healed in return for agreeing to help Gustang with a task he needs done. Upon waking up, Rachel sees that an item was left for her; not knowing that it was from Gustang.

to:

!!Rachel * AlwaysSomeoneBetter: His defeat at Viole's hands did a number on his pride, and his experiences with D-rank Regulars doesn't seem to be helping much in this regard.
* ArchEnemy: Considers Maschenny this, after fighting with her when he was younger and losing. Considers killing her as his final goal when he becomes a Ranker.
* BadassAdorable: The small and cute member of the Great Koon Family. Ran was able to defeat Novick, and fought evenly with Anak during the Workshop Battle.
* TheBigGuy: Despite his small stature, he's the strongest fighter out of Team Koon, and was one of the top 5 E-rank Regulars before becoming D-rank.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Borderline example. He is obnoxious, spoiled and quite childish at times (he destroyed Aguero's Lighthouse during a mission), yet when he gets serious he is a force to be reckoned with.
* CurbStompBattle: How he defeats Novick.
** [[spoiler: On the receiving end with Novick, courtesy of Viole.]]
* CuteBruiser: Surly, tough and undeniably cute. Just... be careful saying that.
* {{Expy}}: Of Killua from ''Hunter x Hunter''.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: When he defeats Novick.
* GlassCannon: Relies on his extremely potent attack power and ability to dodge blows most of the time. Doesn't fare that well when he does get hit himself. Worse, because he relies on hit-and-dodge, others can easily bait or herd him into traps if they can take it for a while.
* HotBlooded: Doesn't look like it. Doesn't sound like it. Usually doesn't act like it (unless provoked). But, [[BloodKnight going off pop]] and [[LeeroyJenkins rushing into dangerous situations half-cocked]] is his speciality.
* IAmNotLeftHanded: Despite being a Fisherman, Ran's Spear Bearer position is ranked higher than his Fisherman position due to his powerful Lightning Spear techniques, which are extremely powerful for his level. This made him possibly the best Spear Bearer of all the E-rank Regulars.
* IdiotBall: When he gets impatient, he tends to get stupid.
* JerkAss: He is extremely arrogant, and seems to possess next to none social skills.
* KungFuWizard: With an emphasis on the "wizard" part, he is still a capable hand-to-hand fighter.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: He primarily uses Shinsoo and overwhelming force to attack, rather than traditional combat.
* OhCrap: [[spoiler: When Viole shows up, Ran's reaction is basically a chain of OhCrap moments one after the other]].
* PintsizedPowerhouse: Very much. Problem is, he generally deals out damage better than he can take it.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Novick's blue, defying their color scheme.
* TheRival: To Anak and Moontari.
* ShockAndAwe: His Lightning Spear technique.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Compared to many other Regulars since his introduction, Ran has been involved in a majority of the fights. Especially after the Team Novick support team has been established.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Subverted. Sure, just one look at him will yell "Koon" if you know much about the Ten. And, he's got the physical oomph and arrogance down to an art. However, he's not that good at the whole cool, calm, collected and dangerously manipulative part of the brief.
* SuperMode: Redan, which he activates by concentrating shinsoo into one baang then swallowing it. This greatly augments his fighting powers, but after 5 minutes, [[HeroicRROD he will collapse]].
* TheStoic: Facial expressions beyond "frustration" and "bored" are for other people.
* TheTeam:
--> '''Koon's Original
Season 2

In
2 Team:''' Ran, Dan, Koon, Rachel, Novick, Gyetang, Apple, and Michael.
--> '''Viole's FUG Team:''' Ran, Viole, Reflejo, Yuto, Xia Xia, Horyang, Cassano, and Novick.
--> '''Team Novick:''' Ran, Dan, Novick, Beta, and Xia Xia.
* TheWorfEffect: This series has a tendency to use him to make others look stronger. It's often justified by his rushing in where those with some information and caution fear to tread. Examples:
** He's played up and shown to be an enormous badass only to make Viole's utter domination of him show how much stronger Viole is. Mind you, had he not been an idiot, Aguero might have been able to warn him about the Irregular factor.
** He clashes with Mirotic and Moontari, to no avail during ''Revolution Road'' to hype up their power. Mind you, the guy was practically frothing with frustration, so disinclined to think before charging.

Upon waking up, Rachel sees that an item was left for her; not knowing that it was from Gustang.Hell Train.



* AntiHero: The author's blog says that she's one of these. She is certainly one of the most ruthless characters.
** ClassicalAntiHero: Her ''real'' introduction at the end of the first volume is devoted specifically to showing her lack of classical heroic qualities, and one of the main themes of the story seems to be deconstructing just what those qualities mean.
** NominalHero: Also possible, although it's hard to tell for sure since we don't know her full motivations or the details of the deals she's struck; it's possible that she's another type of anti-hero or just a straight-up villain.
** HeroOfAnotherStory: She certainly sees herself as the heroine of, at the very least, her own tale. She wants to make it the main one, however. But, as we mainly get to see things from Baam and company's side, we've pretty much only got her word on that. See below.
** HeroAntagonist: Another possible angle. Sure, she could be somewhat delusional in her goals and her behavior is far from nice, but they directly connect in many ways with those the Zarhard batch of Irregulars seem to have had when they were climbing. And, they are considered heros, however much the reader may agree or disagree with the outcome. ''Baam and company'' are the really odd ducks, by current Tower standards. So, the friction between Rachel and Baam could be seen as more clashing cultural interpretations of appropriate forms of heroism than a simple case of hero vs villain. But, of the two sides, Rachel is definitely down in the darker shades of morally grey by readers' standards.
* ArchEnemy: To Koon and Androssi, who both hate her for her manipulative nature and past relantionship with Baam.
* TheBeastMaster: [[spoiler:Po Bidau Gustang leaves her with a gift, a ferocious invisible beast loyal to her.]]
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Attempts to kill Baam by pushing him into dark waters to be eaten, and has continued keeping up the act of being a helpless damsel in front of Aguero for five years afterwards. [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow And he knew, and she knew he knew; she was only keeping up the act so he wouldn't know she knew he knew and so when the time came she could stab him in the back first.]]
* CantCatchUp: Her manipulation skills are top-notch, but her over-reliance on having [[CrutchCharacter strong allies]] to do the dirty work means many of her own skills don't grow as fast as they could, leading to Aguero outperforming her as a Light Bearer when they face each other in the Hell Train arc. The {{Irony}} there is... she actually performed pretty much at Aguero's level as a Light Bearer when they both started out, with a whole lot less practice under her belt (like Baam, the Tower was, for her, an eye-opener of new experiences). Which argues that her native skill (added to Irregular loophole bonuses) would actually be easily into genius levels, if she bothered to hone and exercise it.
* CoolTeacher: For all her faults, she's actually pretty good at teaching when she puts her mind to it. Just ask Baam, who still thinks what she did for him was pretty cool, ulterior motives or not.
* TheDulcineaEffect: What started out simple gets deconstructed like you wouldn't believe. Rachel is very good at playing Dulcinea, but she's a lot more [[PoisonousFriend poisonous]] than she is innocent, and uses her resulting {{Wounded Gazelle Gambit}}s for her own reasons on just about everybody. Baam was never ''entirely'' fooled by her, but his relationship was too important for him to make a fuss about the details for a very long time. And, it is justified in that she was the first person he can remember having any relationship with. This ain't healthy on many, many counts. Including for her world view and mental health, let alone his. Or, anybody else's.
* EntitledBastard: When Zahard's forces take Rachel and some of Baam's companions as hostages, Endorsi rescues Baam's companions while leaving Rachel's behind. Despite everything she herself has done, ''[[{{Hypocrite}} including]]'' escaping traps intended to kill Baam's companions and leaving them to die, Rachel feels outrage that Endorsi didn't rescue her too.
* EvilCounterpart: To Aguero. Both are lighthouse users who are skilled at manipulating others, and both are/were friends with Baam. However, Aguero learns to respect his allies enough to get his hands dirty to work alongside them and even grows to care for them enough to let them strike out more-or-less on their own in a widespread network of interconnections he can call on; while Rachel mostly sees her allies as tools to get her up the Tower, so she can easily completely dump them the minute they become less effective.
* FaceHeelTurn: While there's evidence suggesting she was a ManipulativeBitch even when she met Baam, she did sincerely care for him. The combination of Baam being TheChosenOne and her being manipulated by Headon turned her away from that. However, while this was her FaceHeelTurn chronologically, in story, she's presented as taking this when she pushes Baam into the lake.
* GreenEyedMonster: Is extremely jealous of Baam's status as [[TheChosenOne The Chosen One]], and it was that jealousy that made her want to climb the Tower herself instead of letting Baam have all the glory.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Her main motive. She wants to be the heroine of the story, and will attempt to jam herself into that position by any means necessary. She even tries to get rid of her original body and replace it with a completely different one generated from her idealized self.
** IJustWantToHaveFriends: At first, she envied Baam for being a MagneticHero, though she later settles for forming friendless alliances as the next best thing.
* HeroKiller: In Season 2 Ep 227, she kills Akraptor while Wangnan is held hostage by Yura.
* IKnowYouKnowIKnow: Was caught in a loop of this with Aguero for a while; he knows she's faking her illness and spies on her with his Lighthouse, but she knows his team is a fence to trap her because she spies on him with her Lighthouse. And, so on and so forth. As of this writing, everyone seems to know what everyone else knows about what they know, so this trope may no longer be in place. But, that could change.
* ImmuneToFate: Part of the Irregular package. Which plays a major part in ''completely'' messing with Hwa's ability to guide Baam through the Hell Train arc, although there are a few hints that misleading her goes back much further than that. There are unknowns about how much Rachel knows about her own "skill", and how much various people within FUG do.
* InvincibleVillain: Played with. On one hand, she and her allies are always one step ahead of Baam and co, to the point where they can OutGambit Hwa Ryun, who managed to OutGambit an opposing FUG faction. It helps that she's an Irregular and is harder for Guides to predict. On the other hand, her reluctance to get her hands dirty makes her seem ineffectual compared to many other tower climbers.
* ItGetsEasier: Invoked. She's shaken after killing Akraptor with her own hands, but she tells herself that she'll have to get used to it.
* {{Irony}}: Given her and Baams' interlocking skill-sets, they'd be a pretty unstoppable, hard-to-manipulate, Wave Controller-Lighthouse Keeper and Irregular core to any Tower-shaking team. Shame she can't see that, due to wanting to be the I in Team. She practically hands the awesome over to Aguero, and ensures that everybody dances on others' strings.
* LightIsNotGood: Has light skin, light blonde hair, uses a pseudonym of Michelle Light, and is a Light Bearer. Allthough her role as a villain isn't clear, she's still considered an antagonist to Baam is willing to use whatever (and whoever) she can to climb the Tower.
* ManipulativeBastard: She is; particularly where Baam is concerned. However, Koon has generally seen through her ruses. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, he hasn’t spotted ''all'' of them.]]
* MutualEnvy: Princess Androssi Zahard is jealous of Rachel over how dedicated Baam is towards her and would gladly give up her princess privileges to be with him. On the opposite side, Rachel is jealous of Androssi for being a beautiful princess like a fairytale heroine, while her feelings towards Baam are mixed at best and consist largely of envy.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Downplayed and possibly subverted. She's shaken by how she killed Akraptor and got blood on her hands, but it's implied that [[DirtyCoward she's merely too scared or nervous to do the deed herself easily]], since she has no issue with her comrades killing others -- however, she still battles with the realisation that not all on Baam's team may be as easily or lightly throw-away as she thought before rationalizing it within her "Tower Tale" framework.
* NonActionBigBad: Invoked and played with (what her ultimate role as an antagonist actually is is far from clear). While she does have very solid Lighthouse abilities from the start of her climb, she admits that she'd rather just rely on stronger teammates to rise to the top.
* PsychoticSmirk: Shows one after she detonates a bomb in [[spoiler:Koon]]'s heart, gloating about how she wanted to kill him with her own hands at the worst possible moment for him.
* SmugSnake: Gleefully prances about her room when she thinks no one’s looking, and has given “there’s no way you could understand my motivation” rants before.

And, they are considered heros, however much stuck going up against powerful opponents. However, [[spoiler:after having his legs injured by Rachel]], he regains that strong will to climb the reader may agree or disagree with the outcome.

* BitchInSheepsClothing: Attempts FacingTheBulletsOneLiner: [[spoiler: "Get lost. If you want to walk, walk with those fine legs of your own. You kicked away two friends with those, am I right?" Fortunately, Rachel didn't kill Baam by pushing him into dark waters to be eaten, and has continued keeping up the act of being a helpless damsel in front of Aguero for five years afterwards.

* CantCatchUp: Her manipulation skills are top-notch, but her over-reliance on having [[CrutchCharacter strong allies]] FragileSpeedster: Rumored to do the dirty work means many of her own skills don't grow as fast as they could, leading to be faster than light, which is why Aguero outperforming her as wanted him.
** Ran even outright says that Dan is useless in
a Light Bearer fight, but when they face each other in the Hell Train arc. The {{Irony}} there is... she actually performed pretty much at Aguero's level as a Light Bearer when they both started out, with a whole lot less practice under her belt (like Baam, the Tower was, for her, an eye-opener of new experiences). Which argues that her native skill (added it comes to Irregular loophole bonuses) would actually be easily into genius levels, if she bothered to hone and exercise it.

* CoolTeacher: For all her faults, she's actually pretty good at teaching when she puts her mind to it. Just ask Baam, who still thinks what she did for him was pretty cool, ulterior motives or not.
* TheDulcineaEffect: What started out simple gets deconstructed like you wouldn't believe. Rachel is very good at playing Dulcinea, but she's a lot more [[PoisonousFriend poisonous]] than she is innocent, and uses her resulting {{Wounded Gazelle Gambit}}s for her own reasons on just about everybody. Baam was never ''entirely'' fooled by her, but
FlashStep: During his relationship first appearance, he was too important for him to make a fuss about the details for a very long time. And, it is justified in that she was the first person he can remember having any relationship with. This ain't healthy on many, many counts. Including for her world view and mental health, let alone his. Or, anybody else's.
* EntitledBastard: When Zahard's forces take Rachel and some of Baam's companions as hostages, Endorsi rescues Baam's companions while leaving Rachel's behind. Despite everything she herself has done, ''[[{{Hypocrite}} including]]'' escaping traps intended to kill Baam's companions and leaving them to die, Rachel feels outrage that Endorsi didn't rescue her too.

->'''Tower Position:''' Light-Bearer

Baam's first and best friend who freed him from a dark prison, but then decides to leave him to search for a starry sky (aka: absolute freedom). Baam follows her, the plot begins, and awesomeness ensues. Rachel is viewed to be an ugly tomboyish girl who has nothing special about her whatsoever. As a result, she's forced to get by through the words she speaks, whether it be using the truth or through lies. Rachel is also an Irregular, but an unusual one that was not chosen by the Tower. She had actually snuck in thanks to the effort of another Irregular, Baam, when he forced the door open right below her.

In season 1, Rachel is discovered to not be that far behind Baam's arrival on the Floor of Tests after she was summoned into the Tower. She goes by the moniker of Michelle Light to evade Baam after realizing that the two of them are in the same test group. However, they're eventually forced to reunite after her legs had become crippled. So in order to continue being with Rachel, Baam decides to become her legs, and takes a special final 2nd Floor exam with her to make sure that her injury doesn't cause her to fail out of the Tower. In the end, Rachel betrays Baam by showing that her legs are perfectly fine, pushes him into the dark abyss at the last second as she goes on to complete the final 2nd Floor test with everyone else.

The season 1 epilogue reveals that Rachel was forced to watch Baam complete Headon's 1st Floor test that she didn't have the will to do, and as a result, she believes that he took everything that was meant for her. Headon makes a deal with Rachel that if she does a favor for it, she will become the actual heroine of the story. Headon provides his Akryung minion to help Rachel through the initial tests, and teams up with Yu Han Sung to make sure that Baam does not make it beyond the Tower's 2nd Floor.

!!Rachel in Season 2

In season 2, Rachel continues to climb the Tower, and manages to escape Koon watching over her since she knew that he knew about her betraying Baam. Rachel would then form a new team of her own, and infiltrates the Workshop Battle to take control of Emile; an intelligent chatting bot that she uses to manipulate certain Tower events to her liking. Her team would then board the Hell Train in order to gain a powerful ally in White, a FUG Slayer who had been sealed away within the express. Rachel then journeys to the 43rd Floor of Death in order to obtain a Thorn weapon of her own, and even manages to convince Wangnan to join her group after his Tangsooyook team failed in taking away one of her teammates.

On the Floor of Death, Rachel's plan is thrown out of wack after the FUG Slayer, Karaka, forces himself into the group in order to support White's resurrection. Rachel manages to get away from Karaka in order to reach Baam, but is unable to convince him to run away after Baam reveals to her that he needs to continue going forward since he not only knows about Arlen Grace's existence (who Rachel knows about), but also has a new goal other than just continuously chasing after Rachel. Despite that, Baam allows Rachel to take part in the test that will provide the location of the Floor of Test's Thorn, but she ends up getting poisoned and knocked out during said test. However, Baam makes a deal with the Great Family leader, Po Bidau Gustang, to have her healed in return for agreeing to help Gustang with a task he needs done. Upon waking up, Rachel sees that an item was left for her; not knowing that it was from Gustang.
----

* AntiHero: The author's blog says that she's one of these. She is certainly one of the most ruthless characters.
** ClassicalAntiHero: Her ''real'' introduction at the end of the first volume is devoted specifically to showing her lack of classical heroic qualities, and one of the main themes of the story seems to be deconstructing just what those qualities mean.
** NominalHero: Also possible, although it's hard to tell for sure since we don't know her full motivations or the details of the deals she's struck; it's possible that she's another type of anti-hero or just a straight-up villain.
** HeroOfAnotherStory: She certainly sees herself as the heroine of, at the very least, her own tale. She wants to make it the main one, however. But, as we mainly get to see things from Baam and company's side, we've pretty much only got her word on that. See below.
** HeroAntagonist: Another possible angle. Sure, she could be somewhat delusional in her goals and her behavior is far from nice, but they directly connect in many ways with those the Zarhard batch of Irregulars seem to have had when they were climbing. And, they are considered heros, however much the reader may agree or disagree with the outcome. ''Baam and company'' are the really odd ducks, by current Tower standards. So, the friction between Rachel and Baam could be seen as more clashing cultural interpretations of appropriate forms of heroism than a simple case of hero vs villain. But, of the two sides, Rachel is definitely down in the darker shades of morally grey by readers' standards.
* ArchEnemy: To Koon and Androssi, who both hate her for her manipulative nature and past relantionship with Baam.
* TheBeastMaster: [[spoiler:Po Bidau Gustang leaves her with a gift, a ferocious invisible beast loyal to her.]]
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Attempts to kill Baam by pushing him into dark waters to be eaten, and has continued keeping up the act of being a helpless damsel in front of Aguero for five years afterwards. [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow And he knew, and she knew he knew; she was only keeping up the act so he wouldn't know she knew he knew and so when the time came she could stab him in the back first.]]
* CantCatchUp: Her manipulation skills are top-notch, but her over-reliance on having [[CrutchCharacter strong allies]] to do the dirty work means many of her own skills don't grow as fast as they could, leading to Aguero outperforming her as a Light Bearer when they face each other in the Hell Train arc. The {{Irony}} there is... she actually performed pretty much at Aguero's level as a Light Bearer when they both started out, with a whole lot less practice under her belt (like Baam, the Tower was, for her, an eye-opener of new experiences). Which argues that her native skill (added to Irregular loophole bonuses) would actually be easily into genius levels, if she bothered to hone and exercise it.
* CoolTeacher: For all her faults, she's actually pretty good at teaching when she puts her mind to it. Just ask Baam, who still thinks what she did for him was pretty cool, ulterior motives or not.
* TheDulcineaEffect: What started out simple gets deconstructed like you wouldn't believe. Rachel is very good at playing Dulcinea, but she's a lot more [[PoisonousFriend poisonous]] than she is innocent, and uses her resulting {{Wounded Gazelle Gambit}}s for her own reasons on just about everybody. Baam was never ''entirely'' fooled by her, but his relationship was too important for him to make a fuss about the details for a very long time. And, it is justified in that she was the first person he can remember having any relationship with. This ain't healthy on many, many counts. Including for her world view and mental health, let alone his. Or, anybody else's.
* EntitledBastard: When Zahard's forces take Rachel and some of Baam's companions as hostages, Endorsi rescues Baam's companions while leaving Rachel's behind. Despite everything she herself has done, ''[[{{Hypocrite}} including]]'' escaping traps intended to kill Baam's companions and leaving them to die, Rachel feels outrage that Endorsi didn't rescue her too.
* EvilCounterpart: To Aguero. Both are lighthouse users who are skilled at manipulating others, and both are/were friends with Baam. However, Aguero learns to respect his allies enough to get his hands dirty to work alongside them and even grows to care for them enough to let them strike out more-or-less on their own in a widespread network of interconnections he can call on; while Rachel mostly sees her allies as tools to get her up the Tower, so she can easily completely dump them the minute they become less effective.
* FaceHeelTurn: While there's evidence suggesting she was a ManipulativeBitch even when she met Baam, she did sincerely care for him. The combination of Baam being TheChosenOne and her being manipulated by Headon turned her away from that. However, while this was her FaceHeelTurn chronologically, in story, she's presented as taking this when she pushes Baam into the lake.
* GreenEyedMonster: Is extremely jealous of Baam's status as [[TheChosenOne The Chosen One]], and it was that jealousy that made her want to climb the Tower herself instead of letting Baam have all the glory.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Her main motive. She wants to be the heroine of the story, and will attempt to jam herself into that position by any means necessary. She even tries to get rid of her original body and replace it with a completely different one generated from her idealized self.
** IJustWantToHaveFriends: At first, she envied Baam for being a MagneticHero, though she later settles for forming friendless alliances as the next best thing.
* HeroKiller: In Season 2 Ep 227, she kills Akraptor while Wangnan is held hostage by Yura.
* IKnowYouKnowIKnow: Was caught in a loop of this with Aguero for a while; he knows she's faking her illness and spies on her with his Lighthouse, but she knows his team is a fence to trap her because she spies on him with her Lighthouse. And, so on and so forth. As of this writing, everyone seems to know what everyone else knows about what they know, so this trope may no longer be in place. But, that could change.
* ImmuneToFate: Part of the Irregular package. Which plays a major part in ''completely'' messing with Hwa's ability to guide Baam through the Hell Train arc, although there are a few hints that misleading her goes back much further than that. There are unknowns about how much Rachel knows about her own "skill", and how much various people within FUG do.
* InvincibleVillain: Played with. On one hand, she and her allies are always one step ahead of Baam and co, to the point where they can OutGambit Hwa Ryun, who managed to OutGambit an opposing FUG faction. It helps that she's an Irregular and is harder for Guides to predict. On the other hand, her reluctance to get her hands dirty makes her seem ineffectual compared to many other tower climbers.
* ItGetsEasier: Invoked. She's shaken after killing Akraptor with her own hands, but she tells herself that she'll have to get used to it.
* {{Irony}}: Given her and Baams' interlocking skill-sets, they'd be a pretty unstoppable, hard-to-manipulate, Wave Controller-Lighthouse Keeper and Irregular core to any Tower-shaking team. Shame she can't see that, due to wanting to be the I in Team. She practically hands the awesome over to Aguero, and ensures that everybody dances on others' strings.
* LightIsNotGood: Has light skin, light blonde hair, uses a pseudonym of Michelle Light, and is a Light Bearer. Allthough her role as a villain isn't clear, she's still considered an antagonist to Baam is willing to use whatever (and whoever) she can to climb the Tower.
* ManipulativeBastard: She is; particularly where Baam is concerned. However, Koon has generally seen through her ruses. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, he hasn’t spotted ''all'' of them.]]
* MutualEnvy: Princess Androssi Zahard is jealous of Rachel over how dedicated Baam is towards her and would gladly give up her princess privileges to be with him. On the opposite side, Rachel is jealous of Androssi for being a beautiful princess like a fairytale heroine, while her feelings towards Baam are mixed at best and consist largely of envy.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Downplayed and possibly subverted. She's shaken by how she killed Akraptor and got blood on her hands, but it's implied that [[DirtyCoward she's merely too scared or nervous to do the deed herself easily]], since she has no issue with her comrades killing others -- however, she still battles with the realisation that not all on Baam's team may be as easily or lightly throw-away as she thought before rationalizing it within her "Tower Tale" framework.
* NonActionBigBad: Invoked and played with (what her ultimate role as an antagonist actually is is far from clear). While she does have very solid Lighthouse abilities from the start of her climb, she admits that she'd rather just rely on stronger teammates to rise to the top.
* PsychoticSmirk: Shows one after she detonates a bomb in [[spoiler:Koon]]'s heart, gloating about how she wanted to kill him with her own hands at the worst possible moment for him.
* SmugSnake: Gleefully prances about her room when she thinks no one’s looking, and has given “there’s no way you could understand my motivation” rants before.
* TheTeam:
--> '''Koon's Original Season 2 Team:''' Rachel, Koon, Ran, Novick, Dan, Gyetang, Apple, and Michael.
--> '''Rachel's Hell Train Dallar Show Team:''' Rachel, Hoaqin (White), Yura, Daniel, Raguel, Buelsar, Cassano, Traveller and Anna.

--> '''Rachel's 43rd Floor Team:''' Rachel, Hoaqin (White), Yura, Traveller, Wangnan, and Miseng.
* TheUnchosenOne[=/=]TheChosenWannabe: Rareish anti-villainous (or whatever) example; kicking herself into a, if not ''the'', protagonist role via ScrewDestiny seems to be what motivates her entire plot arc. Headon basically seemed to promise her a way to become Unchosen, but... it remains to be seen if she can manage that. For now, she's a Wannabe with a very good shot. However, please note: if she hadn't tried to hijack Baam's ChosenOne status in the first place, [[MissedTheCall he'd still be stuck in that cave]], bored out of his gourd ''and'' left not knowing enough to know that getting out was even possible. Additionally, she knows about Baam's role as [[spoiler:Arlene Grace's child who will gain Enryu's Thorn and change the tower]], but she still wants to take that role for herself.
* WeCanRuleTogether: Once she discovers Wangnan [[spoiler:has the same ring as Karaka and that he's the Prince of the Red-Light District]], she asks him to team up with her in exchange for sparing Miseng and getting Cassano to return Horyang's half of their devil[[spoiler:, which he reluctantly and grudgingly accepts -- not just for Horyang's sake, but Miseng and Cassano's, too. Oh, and [[KeepingTheEnemyClose for a chance at Rachel]]: [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow she's cool with it]].]] Spotting a theme?
* WoundedGazelleGambit: Pretends that her injury makes her unable to walk to manipulate others into helping her.

A popular D-Rank Regular of the Ha family who performs concerts as an idol singer. She's actually a part of Rachel's group, and boards the Hell Train to keep Baam from running into her. Yura's team faces off against Baam's team during the Train City tournament, [[spoiler:which was revealed to be a trap set up by her and Rachel in order to keep everyone trapped at the fake tournament location while Team Rachel snuck away to steal the Hell Train for themselves]].

Following the Hell Train's Dallar Show, Yura is one of the remaining Regulars still a part of Rachel's group as they make their way to the forbidden 43rd Floor.
----

* ArcVillain: For Baam's team during the Train City tournament.
* BlackSheep: A lesser variant. WordOfGod has noted her to be a "weirdo" of the Ha Family, having skills outside her family's muscle power and, although her spec is good, it isn't like the original Ha Family style, like [[LightningBruiser Yuri's]] for example.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: When Baam angrily chastises her for nearly killing her fan, she basically mentions that her fans are expendable.

* DarkActionGirl: Shows off her superiority in shinsoo usage in a one-on-one bet against Baam. [[spoiler:Then we find out that her shinsoo mastery is only because she's carrying a support item that boosts her Shinsoo resistance. Her true combat capability is thus still unknown.]]

* {{Jerkass}}: Not only does she not care about her current teammates (even killing one outright), she injures the person, Hana Yu, that she knows is a devoted fan of hers.
** JerkassHasAPoint: Calls out Baam for being too clingy to Rachel. A lot of readers will agree that Baam chasing after Rachel ''does'' feel uncomfortable at times, even to the point where it comes off like Baam is stalking her. It doesn't help that immediately after this, Baam meets Rachel for the first time and completely flips out, telling her she's not ''allowed'' to leave him behind.
* LuredIntoATrap: [[spoiler:Turns out that the "Crazy Ball" match was a trap set up by her in order to distract everyone away from Rachel's group taking over the Hell Train. She teleports away using her suitcase after Rachel makes her move]].
* OutOfFocus: [[spoiler:Her time in the spotlight is currently non-existent after joining up with Rachel's group on the Hell Train]]. However, she starts to get more screen-time following the Name Hunt Station arc.
* PlotDevice: [[spoiler:Her teleportation suitcase]].
* PreAsskickingOneLiner: Walks up to an ongoing all-out brawl to ask everyone remaining to become her Hell Train team...which they do.
* {{Revenge}}: Her mother was murdered by their own family, so she's joined [=FUG=] to get revenge against them and the rest of the ten families.
* ShutUpHannibal: Kills one of her Hell Train teammates for gloating about their team's first victory.

As a result, she's forced to get by through the words she speaks, whether it be using the truth or through lies. Rachel is also an Irregular, but an unusual one that was not chosen by the Tower. She had actually snuck in thanks to the effort of another Irregular, Baam, when he forced the door open right below her.

In season 1, Rachel is discovered to not be that far behind Baam's arrival on the Floor of Tests after she was summoned into the Tower.

However, they're eventually forced to reunite after her legs had become crippled. So in order to continue being with Rachel, Baam decides to become her legs, and takes a special final 2nd Floor exam with her to make sure that her injury doesn't cause her to fail out of the Tower.

!!Rachel in Season 2

In season 2, Rachel continues to climb the Tower, and manages to escape Koon watching over her since she knew that he knew about her betraying Baam. Rachel would then form a new team of her own, and infiltrates the Workshop Battle to take control of Emile; an intelligent chatting bot that she uses to manipulate certain Tower events to her liking. Her team would then board the Hell Train in order to gain a powerful ally in White, a FUG Slayer who had been sealed away within the express. Rachel then journeys to the 43rd Floor of Death in order to obtain a Thorn weapon of her own, and even manages to convince Wangnan to join her group after his Tangsooyook team failed in taking away one of her teammates.

On the Floor of Death, Rachel's plan is thrown out of wack after the FUG Slayer, Karaka, forces himself into the group in order to support White's resurrection. Rachel manages to get away from Karaka in order to reach Baam, but is unable to convince him to run away after Baam reveals to her that he needs to continue going forward since he not only knows about Arlen Grace's existence (who Rachel knows about), but also has a new goal other than just continuously chasing after Rachel. Despite that, Baam allows Rachel to take part in the test that will provide the location of the Floor of Test's Thorn, but she ends up getting poisoned and knocked out during said test. However, Baam makes a deal with the Great Family leader, Po Bidau Gustang, to have her healed in return for agreeing to help Gustang with a task he needs done. Upon waking up, Rachel sees that an item was left for her; not knowing that it was from Gustang.

%%[[caption-width-right:297:some caption text]]
->'''Tower Position:''' Scout

A seemingly average-looking guy who provides the series a ton of comedic moments. Leesoo starts off looking like someone who doesn't have anything special about him, and gets easily pushed around by those stronger than him. However, it soon turns out that he is actually much smarter than he looks, which results in people willing to stand behind his command.

In season 1, Leesoo is somehow able to get himself paired up with two monster Regulars, Hatsu and Anak, that made up for his lack of strength in the initial 2nd Floor tests. He's eventually able to pass the Floor of Tests with the rest of the group.

In season 2, Leesoo acts as the leader of his team due to his proven intellect as they go about climbing the Tower. Their main goal is to protect Anak from the Tower given her Fake Princess status. Like Koon, Leesoo was there when he learned of Rachel's betrayal; meaning that the rest of his team also knows. Leesoo also leads his team at the Workshop Battle and Name Hunt Station. The former of which turns into a mission to help Baam break away from FUG while the latter has the team take on Kaiser's faction in order to get Androssi's stolen name back.

!!'''Rachel'''

[[quoteright:297:https://static.
* ActionSurvivor: Despite his relatively low combat skills, he's done well in surviving against some really tough opponents.
* ArtEvolution: In Season 2, he's drawn in a more realistic and gritty style to signify he's [[TookALevelInBadass Taken A Level In Badass]].
* BadassNormal: He's basically a normal human with high-intellect, but is able to survive through the Floor of Tests due to his evasive abilities as a scout, and is now climbing the Tower.
** After hearing a Ranker give a brutal BreakingSpeech to another Regular about how his not being able to make it through the Shinsoo barrier means he was choosen to ''fail'', Ship says ScrewDestiny and pushes his way through the barrier through pure willpower.
* ButtMonkey: Even though he is the leader of his team he gets pushed around a lot by them.
* CharacterDevelopment: He starts to take his leadership role for the team a lot more seriously by season 2.
* ChickMagnet: Not as much as Baam, but if one looks closely, there is at least two woman who like him, Serena and Anak.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Brown.
* DoggedNiceGuy: A non-romantic example, but Anak and Hatsu have physically ''dragged'' him around when he doesn't do what they want.
* DraggedByTheCollar: How Anak dragged a protesting Ship off the stage after agreeing to take part in the test.
* TheDragAlong: After Anak agrees to taking part in the special examination with Baam, she walks cooly offstage, silently dragging a kicking and screaming Ship behind her.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: A sequence of them in the first few chapters after his introduction -- showing his ButtMonkey status by having him blustering ineffectually while Anak and Hatsu show off their skills, then revealing his {{Determinator}} nature by having him push through Lero-Ro's Shinsoo barrier test with sheer willpower, and finally having him demonstrate his intelligence by being the only person to perfectly solve Yu Han Sung's door puzzle.
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: The Ranker says anyone unable to make it through the barrier was chosen to fail and nothing they do can change that. Leesoo decided to screw that and pushed his way through the barrier through pure willpower.
* GuileHero: His [[http://towerofgod.wikia.com/wiki/Ship_Leesoo stat sheet]] lists him as nearly dead last in every single category... except intelligence, where he's one of the highest of the first season's Regulars.
* HeroicSacrifice: Tries to pull a non-lethal one on Quant.
* TheLeader: Takes on this role for the team in season 2.
* TheLoad: Starts off seeming like he will be one to Hatsu and Anak, almost causing them all to fail the second test, then shows he's one of the smartest characters in the series the next test and is even ''the team leader in the second volume.''
* OlderThanHeLooks: Not nearly as extreme as many other characters, but he's ''26'' in the first volume, despite looking and ''acting'' like a teen.
* NiceGuy: Among other things, he uses his own body to cling on to Quant, getting horribly beaten up solely to slow him down a tiny bit and increase his team's chances of victory even though, as Quant points out, he himself was already certain to pass.
* ShipTease: With Serena in the first season.
* TheSmartGuy: Along with Aguero, forms the strategical team.
* TheStrategist: After the time-skip, he serves this role for his team.
* TheTeam:
--> '''Crown Game Team:''' Leesoo, Anak, and Hatsu.
--> '''Hide-and-Seek Team A:''' Leesoo, Koon, Anak, Hwa Ryun, Laure, Aleksai, Blarouse, Sunwoo, Rozeal, Kancho, Goon, Erik, Leon 3, and First Emperor.

--> '''Team Leesoo:''' Leesoo, Anak, Androssi, Hatsu, Laure, Aleksai, Vespa, and Verdi.
* TeamMom: A gender-flipped example.
* TookALevelInBadass: He goes from ButtMonkey in the 1st season, to the team leader in the 2nd season.
* TheUnchosenOne: His inability to walk through the Shinsoo barrier made him doomed to fail in the eyes of the Ranker in charge of the test, so he "chose himself" and pushed his way through.

In season 2, Rachel continues to climb the Tower, and manages to escape Koon watching over her since she knew that he knew about her betraying Baam. Rachel would then form a new team of her own, and infiltrates the Workshop Battle to take control of Emile; an intelligent chatting bot that she uses to manipulate certain Tower events to her liking. Her team would then board the Hell Train in order to gain a powerful ally in White, a FUG Slayer who had been sealed away within the express. Rachel then journeys to the 43rd Floor of Death in order to obtain a Thorn weapon of her own, and even manages to convince Wangnan to join her group after his Tangsooyook team failed in taking away one of her teammates.

On the Floor of Death, Rachel's plan is thrown out of wack after the FUG Slayer, Karaka, forces himself into the group in order to support White's resurrection. Rachel manages to get away from Karaka in order to reach Baam, but is unable to convince him to run away after Baam reveals to her that he needs to continue going forward since he not only knows about Arlen Grace's existence (who Rachel knows about), but also has a new goal other than just continuously chasing after Rachel. Despite that, Baam allows Rachel to take part in the test that will provide the location of the Floor of Test's Thorn, but she ends up getting poisoned and knocked out during said test. However, Baam makes a deal with the Great Family leader, Po Bidau Gustang, to have her healed in return for agreeing to help Gustang with a task he needs done. Upon waking up, Rachel sees that an item was left for her; not knowing that it was from Gustang.

to:

!!Rachel * AbsurdlySharpBlade: He uses Shinsoo manipulation to turn his swords into these.
* BigDamnHeroes: He saves Team Novick before they lost their names to a No-name Regular at Name Hunt Station.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Although he has magic swords at the beginning, he's the only "powerhouse" character with no native advantages; all other high-ranking Regulars benefit from SuperpowerfulGenetics or some other special advantage, but Hatsu's power comes entirely from ridiculous training, to the point where even at the start, he can go toe-to-toe with a Princess of Zahard and (briefly) stand his ground against a Ranker.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: His colour is black.
* ADayInTheLimelight: During the Workshop Battle saga, Hatsu is off doing his own thing within the Archimedes Acorn Workshop away from the rest of Leesoo's Team, who are taking part
in Season 2

the main Workshop Battle tournament. The main purpose of this side-journey was to find a replacement sword for the one he lost in a fight against Cassano, but ended up stumbling upon the forbidden Acorn Workshop that has been working on developing the Emile weapon.
* DualWielding: The Sword That Flies Higher Than Any. The Sword That Flies Lower Than Any.
* FantasyCounterpartCulture: His clothing, his name, his physical characteristics, his weapons and his mentality are very Japanese.
* FlyingWeapon: He uses a flying sword as one of his weapons on the Second Floor, although he seems to have lost it later on.
* FragileSpeedster: His sword techniques strike very quickly, but both his sword and him can't handle too much of a beating.
* HeroicSacrifice: Attempts a non-lethal one during the Second Floor test to stop Quant from pursuing the rest of the team.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: It doesn't matter if it's a sword or a random pipe he picked up. If it is in his hands it WILL cut you.
* MasterSwordsman: He's established as one of the best Regulars introduced on the Floor of Tests as an exceptional sword user, and continues to be one as he climbs up the Tower.
* {{Ronin}}: Though probably a Korean version of a masterless Samurai.
* {{Samurai}}: More of a {{Ronin}}, but still.
* PragmaticHero: His sense of fairness is very flexible in certain situations.
* TheQuietOne: Does not speak much.
* ShroudedInMyth: Mild one. Five years after his debut in The Tower, beating "that Hatsu guy" seems to be a major accomplishment.
* TheTeam:
--> '''Crown Game Team:''' Hatsu, Leesoo, and Anak.
--> '''Hide-and-Seek Team B:''' Hatsu, Androssi, Baam, Michelle Light (Rachel), Ho, Serena, Shopin, Chunhwa, Des Lion, Mauchi, Parakewl, Levin, Full Black, and Grey.

* WeakButSkilled: Compared to powerhouses like the Zahard Princesses and Viole.
* TheWorfEffect: Beaten off screen by the Devil of the Right Arm just to show how tough this devil really is.
* WreckedWeapon: He loses his weapon during the fight with Cassano.

->'''Tower Position:''' Wave Controller

A branch member of the Great Eurasia Family, who runs around with a blanket and pillow to sleep wherever he can.

In season 1, Laure establishes himself as one of the more powerful Floor of Test Regulars due to his incredible shinsoo control as a wave controller. The only problem is that he requires a lot of rest.

In season 2, Rachel Laure continues to climb the Tower, and manages to escape Koon watching over her since she knew that he knew about her betraying Baam. Rachel would then form a new team of her own, and infiltrates the Workshop Battle to take control of Emile; an intelligent chatting bot that she uses to manipulate certain Tower events to her liking. Her team would then board the Hell Train in order to gain a powerful ally in White, a FUG Slayer who had been sealed away within the express. Rachel then journeys to the 43rd as part of Leesoo's 2nd Floor of Death in order to obtain a Thorn weapon of her own, graduation team, and even manages to convince Wangnan to join her group after his Tangsooyook team failed in taking away one of her teammates.

On the Floor of Death, Rachel's plan is thrown out of wack after the FUG Slayer, Karaka, forces himself into the group in order to support White's resurrection. Rachel manages to get away from Karaka in order to reach Baam, but is unable to convince him to run away after Baam reveals to her that he needs to continue going forward since he not only knows about Arlen Grace's existence (who Rachel knows about), but also has a new goal other than just continuously chasing after Rachel.

supports them on whatever mission they come across.



* AntiHero: The author's blog says that she's one of these. She is certainly one of the most ruthless characters.
** ClassicalAntiHero: Her ''real'' introduction at the end of the first volume is devoted specifically to showing her lack of classical heroic qualities, and one of the main themes of the story seems to be deconstructing just what those qualities mean.
** NominalHero: Also possible, although it's hard to tell for sure since we don't know her full motivations or the details of the deals she's struck; it's possible that she's another type of anti-hero or just a straight-up villain.
** HeroOfAnotherStory: She certainly sees herself as the heroine of, at the very least, her own tale. She wants to make it the main one, however. But, as we mainly get to see things from Baam and company's side, we've pretty much only got her word on that. See below.
** HeroAntagonist: Another possible angle. Sure, she could be somewhat delusional in her goals and her behavior is far from nice, but they directly connect in many ways with those the Zarhard batch of Irregulars seem to have had when they were climbing. And, they are considered heros, however much the reader may agree or disagree with the outcome. ''Baam and company'' are the really odd ducks, by current Tower standards. So, the friction between Rachel and Baam could be seen as more clashing cultural interpretations of appropriate forms of heroism than a simple case of hero vs villain. But, of the two sides, Rachel is definitely down in the darker shades of morally grey by readers' standards.
* ArchEnemy: To Koon and Androssi, who both hate her for her manipulative nature and past relantionship with Baam.
* TheBeastMaster: [[spoiler:Po Bidau Gustang leaves her with a gift, a ferocious invisible beast loyal to her.]]
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Attempts to kill Baam by pushing him into dark waters to be eaten, and has continued keeping up the act of being a helpless damsel in front of Aguero for five years afterwards. [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow And he knew, and she knew he knew; she was only keeping up the act so he wouldn't know she knew he knew and so when the time came she could stab him in the back first.]]
* CantCatchUp: Her manipulation skills are top-notch, but her over-reliance on having [[CrutchCharacter strong allies]] to do the dirty work means many of her own skills don't grow as fast as they could, leading to Aguero outperforming her as a Light Bearer when they face each other in the Hell Train arc. The {{Irony}} there is... she actually performed pretty much at Aguero's level as a Light Bearer when they both started out, with a whole lot less practice under her belt (like Baam, the Tower was, for her, an eye-opener of new experiences). Which argues that her native skill (added to Irregular loophole bonuses) would actually be easily into genius levels, if she bothered to hone and exercise it.
* CoolTeacher: For all her faults, she's actually pretty good at teaching when she puts her mind to it. Just ask Baam, who still thinks what she did for him was pretty cool, ulterior motives or not.
* TheDulcineaEffect: What started out simple gets deconstructed like you wouldn't believe. Rachel is very good at playing Dulcinea, but she's a lot more [[PoisonousFriend poisonous]] than she is innocent, and uses her resulting {{Wounded Gazelle Gambit}}s for her own reasons on just about everybody. Baam was never ''entirely'' fooled by her, but his relationship was too important for him to make a fuss about the details for a very long time. And, it is justified in that she was the first person he can remember having any relationship with. This ain't healthy on many, many counts. Including for her world view and mental health, let alone his. Or, anybody else's.
* EntitledBastard: When Zahard's forces take Rachel and some of Baam's companions as hostages, Endorsi rescues Baam's companions while leaving Rachel's behind. Despite everything she herself has done, ''[[{{Hypocrite}} including]]'' escaping traps intended to kill Baam's companions and leaving them to die, Rachel feels outrage that Endorsi didn't rescue her too.
* EvilCounterpart: To Aguero. Both are lighthouse users who are skilled at manipulating others, and both are/were friends with Baam. However, Aguero learns to respect his allies enough to get his hands dirty to work alongside them and even grows to care for them enough to let them strike out more-or-less on their own in a widespread network of interconnections he can call on; while Rachel mostly sees her allies as tools to get her up the Tower, so she can easily completely dump them the minute they become less effective.
* FaceHeelTurn: While there's evidence suggesting she was a ManipulativeBitch even when she met Baam, she did sincerely care for him. The combination of Baam being TheChosenOne and her being manipulated by Headon turned her away from that. However, while this was her FaceHeelTurn chronologically, in story, she's presented as taking this when she pushes Baam into the lake.
* GreenEyedMonster: Is extremely jealous of Baam's status as [[TheChosenOne The Chosen One]], and it was that jealousy that made her want to climb the Tower herself instead of letting Baam have all the glory.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Her main motive. She wants to be the heroine of the story, and will attempt to jam herself into that position by any means necessary. She even tries to get rid of her original body and replace it with a completely different one generated from her idealized self.
** IJustWantToHaveFriends: At first, she envied Baam for being a MagneticHero, though she later settles for forming friendless alliances as the next best thing.
* HeroKiller: In Season 2 Ep 227, she kills Akraptor while Wangnan is held hostage by Yura.
* IKnowYouKnowIKnow: Was caught in a loop of this with Aguero for a while; he knows she's faking her illness and spies on her with his Lighthouse, but she knows his team is a fence to trap her because she spies on him with her Lighthouse. And, so on and so forth. As of this writing, everyone seems to know what everyone else knows about what they know, so this trope may no longer be in place. But, that could change.
* ImmuneToFate: Part of the Irregular package. Which plays a major part in ''completely'' messing with Hwa's ability to guide Baam through the Hell Train arc, although there are a few hints that misleading her goes back much further than that. There are unknowns about how much Rachel knows about her own "skill", and how much various people within FUG do.
* InvincibleVillain: Played with. On one hand, she and her allies are always one step ahead of Baam and co, to the point where they can OutGambit Hwa Ryun, who managed to OutGambit an opposing FUG faction. It helps that she's an Irregular and is harder for Guides to predict. On the other hand, her reluctance to get her hands dirty makes her seem ineffectual compared to many other tower climbers.
* ItGetsEasier: Invoked. She's shaken after killing Akraptor with her own hands, but she tells herself that she'll have to get used to it.
* {{Irony}}: Given her and Baams' interlocking skill-sets, they'd be a pretty unstoppable, hard-to-manipulate, Wave Controller-Lighthouse Keeper and Irregular core to any Tower-shaking team. Shame she can't see that, due to wanting to be the I in Team. She practically hands the awesome over to Aguero, and ensures that everybody dances on others' strings.
* LightIsNotGood: Has light skin, light blonde hair, uses a pseudonym of Michelle Light, and is a Light Bearer. Allthough her role as a villain isn't clear, she's still considered an antagonist to Baam is willing to use whatever (and whoever) she can to climb the Tower.
* ManipulativeBastard: She is; particularly where Baam is concerned. However, Koon has generally seen through her ruses. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, he hasn’t spotted ''all'' of them.]]
* MutualEnvy: Princess Androssi Zahard is jealous of Rachel over how dedicated Baam is towards her and would gladly give up her princess privileges to be with him. On the opposite side, Rachel is jealous of Androssi for being a beautiful princess like a fairytale heroine, while her feelings towards Baam are mixed at best and consist largely of envy.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Downplayed and possibly subverted. She's shaken by how she killed Akraptor and got blood on her hands, but it's implied that [[DirtyCoward she's merely too scared or nervous to do the deed herself easily]], since she has no issue with her comrades killing others -- however, she still battles with the realisation that not all on Baam's team may be as easily or lightly throw-away as she thought before rationalizing it within her "Tower Tale" framework.
* NonActionBigBad: Invoked and played with (what her ultimate role as an antagonist actually is is far from clear). While she does have very solid Lighthouse abilities from the start of her climb, she admits that she'd rather just rely on stronger teammates to rise to the top.
* PsychoticSmirk: Shows one after she detonates a bomb in [[spoiler:Koon]]'s heart, gloating about how she wanted to kill him with her own hands at the worst possible moment for him.
* SmugSnake: Gleefully prances about her room when she thinks no one’s looking, and has given “there’s no way you could understand my motivation” rants before.
* TheTeam:
--> '''Koon's Original Season 2 Team:''' Rachel, Koon, Ran, Novick, Dan, Gyetang, Apple, and Michael.
--> '''Rachel's Hell Train Dallar Show Team:''' Rachel, Hoaqin (White), Yura, Daniel, Raguel, Buelsar, Cassano, Traveller and Anna.

--> '''Rachel's 43rd Floor Team:''' Rachel, Hoaqin (White), Yura, Traveller, Wangnan, and Miseng.
* TheUnchosenOne[=/=]TheChosenWannabe: Rareish anti-villainous (or whatever) example; kicking herself into a, if not ''the'', protagonist role via ScrewDestiny seems to be what motivates her entire plot arc. Headon basically seemed to promise her a way to become Unchosen, but... it remains to be seen if she can manage that. For now, she's a Wannabe with a very good shot. However, please note: if she hadn't tried to hijack Baam's ChosenOne status in the first place, [[MissedTheCall he'd still be stuck in that cave]], bored out of his gourd ''and'' left not knowing enough to know that getting out was even possible. Additionally, she knows about Baam's role as [[spoiler:Arlene Grace's child who will gain Enryu's Thorn and change the tower]], but she still wants to take that role for herself.
* WeCanRuleTogether: Once she discovers Wangnan [[spoiler:has the same ring as Karaka and that he's the Prince of the Red-Light District]], she asks him to team up with her in exchange for sparing Miseng and getting Cassano to return Horyang's half of their devil[[spoiler:, which he reluctantly and grudgingly accepts -- not just for Horyang's sake, but Miseng and Cassano's, too. Oh, and [[KeepingTheEnemyClose for a chance at Rachel]]: [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow she's cool with it]].]] Spotting a theme?
* WoundedGazelleGambit: Pretends that her injury makes her unable to walk to manipulate others into helping her.

* BunnyEarsLawyer: Kicks ass when he stops sleeping on the battle field.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: As seen in the Crown Game special test.
* {{Flight}}: Is able to levitate.

%%[[caption-width-right:297:some caption text]]
->'''Tower Position:''' Light-Bearer

Baam's first and best friend who freed him from a dark prison, but then decides to leave him to search for a starry sky (aka: absolute freedom). Baam follows her, the plot begins, and awesomeness ensues. Rachel is viewed to be an ugly tomboyish girl who has nothing special about her whatsoever. As a result, she's forced to get by through the words she speaks, whether it be using the truth or through lies. Rachel is also an Irregular, but an unusual one that was not chosen by the Tower. She had actually snuck in thanks to the effort of another Irregular, Baam, when he forced the door open right below her.

In season 1, Rachel is discovered to not be that far behind Baam's arrival on the Floor of Tests after she was summoned into the Tower. She goes by the moniker of Michelle Light to evade Baam after realizing that the two of them are in the same test group. However, they're eventually forced to reunite after her legs had become crippled. So in order to continue being with Rachel, Baam decides to become her legs, and takes a special final 2nd Floor exam with her to make sure that her injury doesn't cause her to fail out of the Tower. In the end, Rachel betrays Baam by showing that her legs are perfectly fine, pushes him into the dark abyss at the last second as she goes on to complete the final 2nd Floor test with everyone else.

The season 1 epilogue reveals that Rachel was forced to watch Baam complete Headon's 1st Floor test that she didn't have the will to do, and as a result, she believes that he took everything that was meant for her. Headon makes a deal with Rachel that if she does a favor for it, she will become the actual heroine of the story. Headon provides his Akryung minion to help Rachel through the initial tests, and teams up with Yu Han Sung to make sure that Baam does not make it beyond the Tower's 2nd Floor.

* CallToAdventure: Once upon a time, a girl somehow found a cave, opened it and made friends with the boy she found inside it... Plot ensues.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Yellow hair, yellow eyes.
* DamselInDistress: After getting stabbed by Ho. However, [[DeliberatelyDistressedDamsel she’s faking it.]]
* TheDulcineaEffect: She's Baam's Dulcinea, and the trope starts out playing as straight as they come. However... see the next section.
* IllGirl: She loses the use of her legs after Ho stabs her. However, she’s faking it and fools almost nobody; the doctor who examined her said there was no lasting damage.
* MeaningfulName: According to the author's blog, her name was chosen because "In Sherlock Holmes, there is a reference to the word Rache(Rah-he) that means revenge in German."
* NonPOVProtagonist: For a character who's hardly ever on screen, she provides a lot of fuel for the story, as well as prodding a great deal of the main cast into moving in various important directions. Both deliberately and accidentally; positive and negative.
* RidiculouslyAverageGuy: Comes across as this. Except for her being able to use and endure Shinsoo… like, well... ''everybody else''. She's a quick study, however, to get as good with lightboxes as fast as she does. Like Baam, she starts knowing very little about basic aspects of the Tower, and it puts her at a disadvantage.
** According to WordOfGod, she is indeed an Irregular like Baam, which means she ''might'' have abilities we haven't seen... but if so, there's been no hint of them beyond that.

!!Rachel in Season 2

In season 2, Rachel continues to climb the Tower, and manages to escape Koon watching over her since she knew that he knew about her betraying Baam. Rachel would then form a new team of her own, and infiltrates the Workshop Battle to take control of Emile; an intelligent chatting bot that she uses to manipulate certain Tower events to her liking. Her team would then board the Hell Train in order to gain a powerful ally in White, a FUG Slayer who had been sealed away within the express. Rachel then journeys to the 43rd Floor of Death in order to obtain a Thorn weapon of her own, and even manages to convince Wangnan to join her group after his Tangsooyook team failed in taking away one of her teammates.

On the Floor of Death, Rachel's plan is thrown out of wack after the FUG Slayer, Karaka, forces himself into the group in order to support White's resurrection. Rachel manages to get away from Karaka in order to reach Baam, but is unable to convince him to run away after Baam reveals to her that he needs to continue going forward since he not only knows about Arlen Grace's existence (who Rachel knows about), but also has a new goal other than just continuously chasing after Rachel. Despite that, Baam allows Rachel to take part in the test that will provide the location of the Floor of Test's Thorn, but she ends up getting poisoned and knocked out during said test. However, Baam makes a deal with the Great Family leader, Po Bidau Gustang, to have her healed in return for agreeing to help Gustang with a task he needs done. Upon waking up, Rachel sees that an item was left for her; not knowing that it was from Gustang.
----

* AntiHero: The author's blog says that she's one of these. She is certainly one of the most ruthless characters.
** ClassicalAntiHero: Her ''real'' introduction at the end of the first volume is devoted specifically to showing her lack of classical heroic qualities, and one of the main themes of the story seems to be deconstructing just what those qualities mean.
** NominalHero: Also possible, although it's hard to tell for sure since we don't know her full motivations or the details of the deals she's struck; it's possible that she's another type of anti-hero or just a straight-up villain.
** HeroOfAnotherStory: She certainly sees herself as the heroine of, at the very least, her own tale. She wants to make it the main one, however. But, as we mainly get to see things from Baam and company's side, we've pretty much only got her word on that. See below.
** HeroAntagonist: Another possible angle. Sure, she could be somewhat delusional in her goals and her behavior is far from nice, but they directly connect in many ways with those the Zarhard batch of Irregulars seem to have had when they were climbing. And, they are considered heros, however much the reader may agree or disagree with the outcome. ''Baam and company'' are the really odd ducks, by current Tower standards. So, the friction between Rachel and Baam could be seen as more clashing cultural interpretations of appropriate forms of heroism than a simple case of hero vs villain. But, of the two sides, Rachel is definitely down in the darker shades of morally grey by readers' standards.
* ArchEnemy: To Koon and Androssi, who both hate her for her manipulative nature and past relantionship with Baam.
* TheBeastMaster: [[spoiler:Po Bidau Gustang leaves her with a gift, a ferocious invisible beast loyal to her.]]
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Attempts to kill Baam by pushing him into dark waters to be eaten, and has continued keeping up the act of being a helpless damsel in front of Aguero for five years afterwards. [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow And he knew, and she knew he knew; she was only keeping up the act so he wouldn't know she knew he knew and so when the time came she could stab him in the back first.]]
* CantCatchUp: Her manipulation skills are top-notch, but her over-reliance on having [[CrutchCharacter strong allies]] to do the dirty work means many of her own skills don't grow as fast as they could, leading to Aguero outperforming her as a Light Bearer when they face each other in the Hell Train arc. The {{Irony}} there is... she actually performed pretty much at Aguero's level as a Light Bearer when they both started out, with a whole lot less practice under her belt (like Baam, the Tower was, for her, an eye-opener of new experiences). Which argues that her native skill (added to Irregular loophole bonuses) would actually be easily into genius levels, if she bothered to hone and exercise it.
* CoolTeacher: For all her faults, she's actually pretty good at teaching when she puts her mind to it. Just ask Baam, who still thinks what she did for him was pretty cool, ulterior motives or not.
* TheDulcineaEffect: What started out simple gets deconstructed like you wouldn't believe. Rachel is very good at playing Dulcinea, but she's a lot more [[PoisonousFriend poisonous]] than she is innocent, and uses her resulting {{Wounded Gazelle Gambit}}s for her own reasons on just about everybody. Baam was never ''entirely'' fooled by her, but his relationship was too important for him to make a fuss about the details for a very long time. And, it is justified in that she was the first person he can remember having any relationship with. This ain't healthy on many, many counts. Including for her world view and mental health, let alone his. Or, anybody else's.
* EntitledBastard: When Zahard's forces take Rachel and some of Baam's companions as hostages, Endorsi rescues Baam's companions while leaving Rachel's behind. Despite everything she herself has done, ''[[{{Hypocrite}} including]]'' escaping traps intended to kill Baam's companions and leaving them to die, Rachel feels outrage that Endorsi didn't rescue her too.
* EvilCounterpart: To Aguero. Both are lighthouse users who are skilled at manipulating others, and both are/were friends with Baam. However, Aguero learns to respect his allies enough to get his hands dirty to work alongside them and even grows to care for them enough to let them strike out more-or-less on their own in a widespread network of interconnections he can call on; while Rachel mostly sees her allies as tools to get her up the Tower, so she can easily completely dump them the minute they become less effective.
* FaceHeelTurn: While there's evidence suggesting she was a ManipulativeBitch even when she met Baam, she did sincerely care for him. The combination of Baam being TheChosenOne and her being manipulated by Headon turned her away from that. However, while this was her FaceHeelTurn chronologically, in story, she's presented as taking this when she pushes Baam into the lake.
* GreenEyedMonster: Is extremely jealous of Baam's status as [[TheChosenOne The Chosen One]], and it was that jealousy that made her want to climb the Tower herself instead of letting Baam have all the glory.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Her main motive. She wants to be the heroine of the story, and will attempt to jam herself into that position by any means necessary. She even tries to get rid of her original body and replace it with a completely different one generated from her idealized self.
** IJustWantToHaveFriends: At first, she envied Baam for being a MagneticHero, though she later settles for forming friendless alliances as the next best thing.
* HeroKiller: In Season 2 Ep 227, she kills Akraptor while Wangnan is held hostage by Yura.
* IKnowYouKnowIKnow: Was caught in a loop of this with Aguero for a while; he knows she's faking her illness and spies on her with his Lighthouse, but she knows his team is a fence to trap her because she spies on him with her Lighthouse. And, so on and so forth. As of this writing, everyone seems to know what everyone else knows about what they know, so this trope may no longer be in place. But, that could change.
* ImmuneToFate: Part of the Irregular package. Which plays a major part in ''completely'' messing with Hwa's ability to guide Baam through the Hell Train arc, although there are a few hints that misleading her goes back much further than that. There are unknowns about how much Rachel knows about her own "skill", and how much various people within FUG do.
* InvincibleVillain: Played with. On one hand, she and her allies are always one step ahead of Baam and co, to the point where they can OutGambit Hwa Ryun, who managed to OutGambit an opposing FUG faction. It helps that she's an Irregular and is harder for Guides to predict. On the other hand, her reluctance to get her hands dirty makes her seem ineffectual compared to many other tower climbers.
* ItGetsEasier: Invoked. She's shaken after killing Akraptor with her own hands, but she tells herself that she'll have to get used to it.
* {{Irony}}: Given her and Baams' interlocking skill-sets, they'd be a pretty unstoppable, hard-to-manipulate, Wave Controller-Lighthouse Keeper and Irregular core to any Tower-shaking team. Shame she can't see that, due to wanting to be the I in Team. She practically hands the awesome over to Aguero, and ensures that everybody dances on others' strings.
* LightIsNotGood: Has light skin, light blonde hair, uses a pseudonym of Michelle Light, and is a Light Bearer. Allthough her role as a villain isn't clear, she's still considered an antagonist to Baam is willing to use whatever (and whoever) she can to climb the Tower.
* ManipulativeBastard: She is; particularly where Baam is concerned. However, Koon has generally seen through her ruses. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, he hasn’t spotted ''all'' of them.]]
* MutualEnvy: Princess Androssi Zahard is jealous of Rachel over how dedicated Baam is towards her and would gladly give up her princess privileges to be with him. On the opposite side, Rachel is jealous of Androssi for being a beautiful princess like a fairytale heroine, while her feelings towards Baam are mixed at best and consist largely of envy.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Downplayed and possibly subverted. She's shaken by how she killed Akraptor and got blood on her hands, but it's implied that [[DirtyCoward she's merely too scared or nervous to do the deed herself easily]], since she has no issue with her comrades killing others -- however, she still battles with the realisation that not all on Baam's team may be as easily or lightly throw-away as she thought before rationalizing it within her "Tower Tale" framework.
* NonActionBigBad: Invoked and played with (what her ultimate role as an antagonist actually is is far from clear). While she does have very solid Lighthouse abilities from the start of her climb, she admits that she'd rather just rely on stronger teammates to rise to the top.
* PsychoticSmirk: Shows one after she detonates a bomb in [[spoiler:Koon]]'s heart, gloating about how she wanted to kill him with her own hands at the worst possible moment for him.
* SmugSnake: Gleefully prances about her room when she thinks no one’s looking, and has given “there’s no way you could understand my motivation” rants before.
* TheTeam:
--> '''Koon's Original Season 2 Team:''' Rachel, Koon, Ran, Novick, Dan, Gyetang, Apple, and Michael.
--> '''Rachel's Hell Train Dallar Show Team:''' Rachel, Hoaqin (White), Yura, Daniel, Raguel, Buelsar, Cassano, Traveller and Anna.

--> '''Rachel's 43rd Floor Team:''' Rachel, Hoaqin (White), Yura, Traveller, Wangnan, and Miseng.
* TheUnchosenOne[=/=]TheChosenWannabe: Rareish anti-villainous (or whatever) example; kicking herself into a, if not ''the'', protagonist role via ScrewDestiny seems to be what motivates her entire plot arc. Headon basically seemed to promise her a way to become Unchosen, but... it remains to be seen if she can manage that. For now, she's a Wannabe with a very good shot. However, please note: if she hadn't tried to hijack Baam's ChosenOne status in the first place, [[MissedTheCall he'd still be stuck in that cave]], bored out of his gourd ''and'' left not knowing enough to know that getting out was even possible. Additionally, she knows about Baam's role as [[spoiler:Arlene Grace's child who will gain Enryu's Thorn and change the tower]], but she still wants to take that role for herself.
* WeCanRuleTogether: Once she discovers Wangnan [[spoiler:has the same ring as Karaka and that he's the Prince of the Red-Light District]], she asks him to team up with her in exchange for sparing Miseng and getting Cassano to return Horyang's half of their devil[[spoiler:, which he reluctantly and grudgingly accepts -- not just for Horyang's sake, but Miseng and Cassano's, too. Oh, and [[KeepingTheEnemyClose for a chance at Rachel]]: [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow she's cool with it]].]] Spotting a theme?
* WoundedGazelleGambit: Pretends that her injury makes her unable to walk to manipulate others into helping her.

As a result, Kaiser was not chosen as a Zahard Princess, and was punished to climb the Tower as a normal Regular until she reached the 39th Floor.

A painter Regular with an odd set of eyes who's considered to be the top scout amongst the D-rankers, and originally used to live on the 43rd Floor of Death before managing to escape the place. Despite his strong reputation, Hockney made a home for himself within the 40th Hell Train station known as the Mushroom Farm, and has stayed put until the last piece of his Red Light painting he's been waiting for finally appears.

However, he's finally forced to enter the Hell Train due to Yura having obtained the Red Light piece, which Hockney considers to be a part of his soul. Yura then baits Hockney to return to the Floor of Death by informing him through Emile that he will find his Red Light painting there. For his return to the Floor of Death, Hockney joins up with Baam's expedition team.

!!Rachel in Season 2

In season 2, Rachel continues to climb the Tower, and manages to escape Koon watching over her since she knew that he knew about her betraying Baam. Rachel would then form a new team of her own, and infiltrates the Workshop Battle to take control of Emile; an intelligent chatting bot that she uses to manipulate certain Tower events to her liking. Her team would then board the Hell Train in order to gain a powerful ally in White, a FUG Slayer who had been sealed away within the express. Rachel then journeys to the 43rd Floor of Death in order to obtain a Thorn weapon of her own, and even manages to convince Wangnan to join her group after his Tangsooyook team failed in taking away one of her teammates.

On the Floor of Death, Rachel's plan is thrown out of wack after the FUG Slayer, Karaka, forces himself into the group in order to support White's resurrection. Rachel manages to get away from Karaka in order to reach Baam, but is unable to convince him to run away after Baam reveals to her that he needs to continue going forward since he not only knows about Arlen Grace's existence (who Rachel knows about), but also has a new goal other than just continuously chasing after Rachel. Despite that, Baam allows Rachel to take part in the test that will provide the location of the Floor of Test's Thorn, but she ends up getting poisoned and knocked out during said test. However, Baam makes a deal with the Great Family leader, Po Bidau Gustang, to have her healed in return for agreeing to help Gustang with a task he needs done. Upon waking up, Rachel sees that an item was left for her; not knowing that it was from Gustang.

->'''Tower Position:''' Guide

A Red Witch guide
that helps certain people climb the Tower Floors. Viewing Baam as her "god," Hwa Ryun has remained a major support for his development and climb up the Tower.

In season 1, Hwa Ryun is introduced as a mysterious character wearing a mask and tight neoprene suit during the Crown Game, and dominated the last round until Baam slashed her face with shinsoo. Since then, Hwa Ryun's wears an eyepatch, let her hair down, and pretends to take part in the wave controller class alongside Baam. In the epilogue, it's revealed that upon Rachel's arrival into the Tower, Yu Han Sung had tasked Hwa Ryun to serve as Rachel's guide to help the latter safely climb the Tower. She also turns out to be a member of FUG, and recruited Baam into the organization after Rachel betrayed him.

In season 2, Hwa Ryun continues to watch over Baam as he climbs the Tower as FUG's leader, Jyu Viole Grace. By the time of the Workshop Battle, it turned out that she's been working for the FUG faction that supports Viole rather than Karaka's side that's trying to kill him, and helps Baam break away from the terrorist organization with the powerful Thorn at hand. After Workshop,

major grudge against. Though this ends up being a ploy of hers, and in reality her main goal was obtaining the soul-stirring laddle in order to trade it for another Thorn frament for Baam. She uncharacteristically does not accompany them into the Hidden Floor, but plays a vital role in helping everyone escape when Zahard's forces come to kill everyone on the Hell Train.

In season 3, she has presumably gone her seperate ways from Baam's group for now.



!!Rachel in Season 2

In season 2, Rachel continues to climb the Tower, and manages to escape Koon watching over her since she knew that he knew about her betraying Baam. Rachel would then form a new team of her own, and infiltrates the Workshop Battle to take control of Emile; an intelligent chatting bot that she uses to manipulate certain Tower events to her liking. Her team would then board the Hell Train in order to gain a powerful ally in White, a FUG Slayer who had been sealed away within the express. Rachel then journeys to the 43rd Floor of Death in order to obtain a Thorn weapon of her own, and even manages to convince Wangnan to join her group after his Tangsooyook team failed in taking away one of her teammates.

On the Floor of Death, Rachel's plan is thrown out of wack after the FUG Slayer, Karaka, forces himself into the group in order to support White's resurrection. Rachel manages to get away from Karaka in order to reach Baam, but is unable to convince him to run away after Baam reveals to her that he needs to continue going forward since he not only knows about Arlen Grace's existence (who Rachel knows about), but also has a new goal other than just continuously chasing after Rachel. Despite that, Baam allows Rachel to take part in the test that will provide the location of the Floor of Test's Thorn, but she ends up getting poisoned and knocked out during said test. However, Baam makes a deal with the Great Family leader, Po Bidau Gustang, to have her healed in return for agreeing to help Gustang with a task he needs done. Upon waking up, Rachel sees that an item was left for her; not knowing that it was from Gustang.

* BerserkButton: Not very obvious at first glance, but it looks like doubting her skills as a Guide is a quick way to piss her off. A more passive aggressive example than most due to her more subdued nature.

* ChekhovsGunman: She first appears as a mysterious, strong Regular who gets injured in the crown game. [[spoiler: She is actually an extremely experienced FUG member and a Guide like Evan; in fact acting as Rachel's, and then Baam's Guide.]]
* TheChessmaster: She
knew about her betraying Baam. Rachel would then form the Elder's plan to [[spoiler:turn Viole into a new team of her own, weapon for the other Slayers to use]] well-beforehand, and infiltrates used it as a means of [[spoiler:reuniting Baam with his friends]]. With almost the entirety of the Workshop Battle arc working out because of her plans.
* CombatPragmatist: When she's forced to help Team Rachel, she has no qualms about ordering them to perform a GroinAttack on some of the tougher enemies, [[EvenEvilHasStandards much to their chagrin]].
* CurbStompBattle: In the Crown Game, she sweeps the floor with everybody except Androssi.
* DamselInDistress: [[spoiler: Is used as a hostage to prevent Baam during a battle to limit his ability to fight back. And she gets captured by Rachel's group to help them in the Hell Train. Although since she can see the future, it's hard to tell how much of this is JustAsPlanned; certainly her getting captured in the workshop battle ultimately ended up putting her just where she wanted to be after the arc was over.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Always speaks in a neutral tone even when dishing out the snark.
** DisabledSnarker: Losing an eye does little to impede her usual attitude.
* ElegantGothicLolita: A lot of her outfits give off this feel.
* EnigmaticMinion: She's a FUG member, and yet she occasionally goes out of her way to help other Regulars for no reason. No wonder some of her colleagues are wary of her.
** Noticeably, when Baam asks her why she's siding with FUG, she ducks the question by giving a general answer about why ''other people'' would do so instead.
* EyepatchOfPower: After her eye got cut by Baam.
** [[AllThereInTheManual Side materials]] claim that she is actually really fond of it, and likes herself better with the eye-patch on.
* EyeScream: There's one fairly graphic panel of Baam's power slashing across her eye; if you're reading quickly, it's easy to miss that the slash is shown cutting deeply ''into the eyeball.''
* FanDisservice: While in most cases seeing a character with her looks have their shirt wide open would be a nice dish of Fanservice, having it open due to [[spoiler:her being beaten bloody by Reflejo as a "lesson" and propped up in a CrucifiedHeroShot]] made it more disturbing than anything else.
* FieryRedhead: Subverted. She is more a CuteMute or TheStoic than fiery.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Pretty much everyone distrusts her for one reason or another, and tend to actively avoid her unless they are forced to use her help. The only exception being Baam because, well, [[AllLovingHero he's Baam]].
* TheGadfly: Subtle, but it's there. Has a habit of messing with people by showing off how much she knows without actually giving any real information, and from the looks of it she mostly does it just because [[ItAmusedMe it was funny.]] Even when she goes out of her way to motivate people, she can't help but add in a few jabs here and there. Like when she motivates Yeon after the flower incident only to finish by saying that you can't expect much from a girl who can't even cook.
* GuileHero: Whether or not her intentions are on the good side of things has yet to be seen, her manipulative tendencies have shown up from time to time. Usually pushing a character in a personal dilemma into a direction that will lead to them to continue helping Baam.
** NominalHero: Or she could be this, since her motivations are not clear, and the group has to rely on her due to her position as a Guide.
* InformedAttractiveness: In one of his blogposts, SIU stated that the most beautiful women introduced in season one was Hwa Ryun and that this was actually a plot point; which at the time was something that could be debated. [[ArtEvolution But as of her first appearance in Season two, it's hard to argue on the contrary.]]
* ItsPersonal: Claims to have a grudge against Hell Joe for killing a fellow Guide when it wasn't yet their destined time to die. Wanting Yuri and the others
to take control him out for her. [[spoiler:Subverted later on when its revealed that, while she did have a grudge, she mainly just wanted a distraction so she could get the ladle which would help Baam later on.]]
* JerkAss: She has her share
of Emile; an sarcasm, and tends to not get along with anyone not named Baam/Viole.
* LuminescentBlush: Sports one brielfy when Viole tears off some of her clothing [[spoiler:when she's disquised as Yuto.]]
* MagicStaff / SimpleStaff: Her WeaponOfChoice, also counts as a FlyingWeapon
* TheMole: Was this during both in the first season, and during [[spoiler:the Workshop Battle acting as Yuto.]]
* MysteriousWoman: While she's eventually revealed to come from a clan of Guides, and seems to be fond of [=Viole/Baam=], her background and motivations are largely unknown.
* NotSoDifferent: States that she and Baam are alike but ignored his attempt at getting her to elaborate on what she meant.
** Also with Koon. Both being very
intelligent chatting bot and cunning individuals who do whatever it takes to help Baam. With Koon being able to break down most of her true intentions on the Floor of Death solely by focusing on the fact that everything she uses does is for Baam's sake. The main difference, for better or for worse, is that Khun tries to manipulate certain take into account what Baam wants as much as he can, despite his own grievences. While Hwa Ryun will try to do so to an extent, but ultimately doesn't care about anything other than Baam, and will gladly sacrifice what she thinks needs to be.
* NotSoOmniscientAfterAll: While her knowledge about the
Tower events is overall good, she lacks information about Irregulars. [[spoiler:Among other things, she has been blindsided by Rachel due to her liking. Her this. In addition, Rachel's team has Emile, whose omniscient-like abilities really screws up Hwa Ryun's own knowledge base.]]
* OracularUrchin: Has shades of this, especially since she tends to be extremely cryptic with her advice as a guide and never lets anybody else in on her plans.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Koon becomes instantly suspicious when Hwa Ryun claims she wants them to take out Hell Joe because of a personal grudge against him. Since he doesn't believe she
would then board do anything if it wasn't helping Baam in some way. [[spoiler: He's right, while she did have a grudge against Joe, she didn't think it was as important as getting the ladle to trade for another Thorn fragment for Baam]].
** Another example is when she chooses not to go to the Hidden Floor with everyone else. Koon instantly becomes wary of it, noting how she would normally be willing to follow Baam into Hell every other time.
* OutGambitted: [[spoiler:While she manages to outgambit Reflejo and especially his minions, she totally didn't expect Cassano of planting a spying device on her tools, turning her into a DamselInDistress later.]]
* PrecisionFStrike: Hwa Ryun is the first character to outright refer to [[spoiler:Rachel]] as a bitch.
* PowerOfTrust: It's been pointed out that Baam has complete faith in her as his Guide, best seen in their encounter with Mirotic guardian.
** She later comments on this when forced to help Rachel's group, and how their doubt in her lessened their effectiveness, with her noting how Baam is much easier to control than them.
* TheQuietOne: For most of season one, she just sits around in the class room or the background. In season one she just has three conversations, with Aguero, Baam and Rachel. [[spoiler: Quite possibly, she was just silent because the didn't need to socialize with the other Regulars.]]
** Averted in season two; she's on the quiet side, but she talks far more.
* RapunzelHair: Especially in season 2.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives one to Baam during
the Hell Train arc because his recklessness when confronting Rachel made everyone else vulnerable.
* SamusIsAGirl: She somehow manages to do this ''TWICE''.
* SarcasticDevotee: Snarks every once and a while, mostly to Baam when the two share a conversation. Always willing to aid him, but never divulging the reasons for why.
* ScrewDestiny: Seems a bit odd at first, but when she is being interrogated by Evan on what Path she is trying to have Baam follow she denies the accusation. Instead claiming that she isn't trying to have him follow anyone's else path, but have him create an entirely new one for himself.
* {{Seers}}: An odd example of this since it appears to be a somewhat limited example. Rather than predicting the future (though it is mentioned that Guides are capable of this occasionally) she is able to see the best method for a person to complete something, and the "path" they must take to get what they want.
* ShipTease: Less obvious than the other examples in the series, but it has been noted that when she was talking about him becoming worthy of being her God as well as a man, the wording was a bit ambiguous as to whether or not she was commenting on his growth, or [[ShippingGoggles hitting on him by calling him her man.]]
** Adding on to this, as AffectionateNickname points out she tends to treat him more endearing than every other character she interacts with, and despite how harshly she talks to him at times it always seems to be in his best interests. It's also a bit odd how much the two seem to trust each other despite the [[EyeScream many]] [[ManipulativeBastard reasons]] why people would act otherwise. Though it could just be chalked up to Baam's naivety.
** A subtle example, but she tends to dislike socializing with anyone else outside of giving them guidance. But there's a RunningGag where she gets a bit upset whenever Baam ignores or is oblivious to her presence in the room.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Silent, but kind of adorable.
* TheTeam
--> '''Crown Game Team:''' Hwa Ryun (Mask), Goon and Yung.
--> '''Hide-and-Seek Team A:''' Hwa Ryun, Leesoo, Koon, Anak, Laure, Aleksai, Blarouse, Sunwoo, Rozeal, Kancho, Goon, Erik, Leon 3, and First Emperor.
--> '''Viole's FUG Team:''' Yuto (Hwa Ryun), Viole, Reflejo, Xia Xia, Horyang, Cassano, Ran, and Novick.
--> '''Hwa Ryun's Rescue Party:''' Hwa Ryun, Horyang and Novick.

--> '''Baam's 43rd Floor Team:''' Hwa Ryun, Baam, Koon, Androssi, Boro, Sachi, Irure and Hockney.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: With Rachel's group after being held hostage by them in the Hell Train.
* UndyingLoyalty: Not so obvious in the beginning, but as time has gone on its become clear that she could give Koon a run for his money with how devoted she is to helping Baam.
* WalkingSpoiler: A lot about Hwa Ryun is revealed once readers see her true role in the season 1 epilogue.
* WitchSpecies: She is from the Red Witch clan, who are known for their bright red hair and being Guides.
* TheWorfEffect: Though she doesn't have many combat appearances, it was still surprising to see someone who dominated a team of Regulars in a matter of seconds be beaten soundly, along with Horyang and Novick,
in order to gain a powerful ally in White, a FUG Slayer who had been sealed away within show how strong Reflejo and Cassano were. Though somewhat justified by the express. Rachel then journeys to fact that WordOfGod claims Guides have relatively low battle skills.
** Also done in a non-combat based sense with her abilities as a Guide, her foresight was pretty much
the 43rd Floor of Death in order to obtain a Thorn weapon of main reason why the Workshop Battle worked out as well as it did for the heroes. During the Hell Train arc, she is largely useless since her own, powers aren't able to [[ImmuneToFate predict Rachel's movements due to Rachel's status as an Irregular and even manages to convince because of Emile's unique abilities]]. Makes up for it later on when her Guide abilities return when Baam leaves the Hidden Floor, with her being one of the main reasons they survived the encounter with [[spoilers:Jahad's Royal Army]].
* WorldsMostBeautifulWoman: WordOfGod says she is the prettiest of the Part 1 Regulars, and that it is a plot point.

->'''Tower Position:''' Fisherman, Hwayeomsa

A Regular that's introduced in season 2, and first appears in a scene where she fries Ja
Wangnan during an attempt to join complete the 20th Floor test. She is next forced to go along with Prince's loan shark team for another attempt at the 20th Floor test because of the debt she gained failing the test that she fried Wangnan in. Control over Yihwa ends up getting transferred to Viole after he defeats Prince's high-score on the punching machine for the 20th Floor test. She's also a user of the rare Hwayeomsa Position, which is basically converting shinsoo into fire.

Following
her freedom from Lurker Cash, Yihwa joins up with Viole and Wangnan's Tangsooyook group that was formed as a result of completing the 20th Floor test. However, she learns of her Great Yeon Family having a dark side to them due to discovering the family's mistreatment of the Zygaenas during the 21st Floor test. As a result, she decides to climb the Tower with Viole to witness the darkness of the other Great Families, and return to the Yeon Family after his becoming a Ranker to set the family straight.

Afterwards, Yihwa climbs the Tower with the
Tangsooyook team failed in taking away one of her teammates.

On
all the Floor of Death, Rachel's plan is thrown out of wack after way to the FUG Slayer, Karaka, forces himself into Hell Train, but unlike the group in order to support White's resurrection. Rachel manages to get away from Karaka in order to reach Baam, but is unable to convince him to run away after Baam reveals to her that he needs to rest of Wangnan's group, who continue going forward since he not only knows about Arlen Grace's existence (who Rachel knows about), but also has a new goal other than just continuously chasing after Rachel. Despite that, the chase for Cassano, Yeon is asked to rejoin with Baam allows Rachel to take part in starting from the test that will provide 39th Floor's Name Hunt Station. Following the location of the Floor of Test's Thorn, but she ends Name Hunt Station mission, [[spoiler:Yihwa, as well as Rak and Danhwa, end up getting poisoned and knocked out separated from Baam's group after falling off the bridge during said test. However, Baam makes a deal with the Great Family leader, Po Bidau Gustang, their attempt to have her healed in return for agreeing to help Gustang with a task he needs done. Upon waking up, Rachel sees that an item was left for her; not knowing that it was the Hell Train. She and Danhwa were recovered by Urek and Yuje thanks to her Yeon flame protecting the two of them from Gustang.possible death]].



* AntiHero: The author's blog says that she's one of these. She is certainly one of the most ruthless characters.
** ClassicalAntiHero: Her ''real'' introduction at the end of the first volume is devoted specifically to showing her lack of classical heroic qualities, and one of the main themes of the story seems to be deconstructing just what those qualities mean.
** NominalHero: Also possible, although it's hard to tell for sure since we don't know her full motivations or the details of the deals she's struck; it's possible that she's another type of anti-hero or just a straight-up villain.
** HeroOfAnotherStory: She certainly sees herself as the heroine of, at the very least, her own tale. She wants to make it the main one, however. But, as we mainly get to see things from Baam and company's side, we've pretty much only got her word on that. See below.
** HeroAntagonist: Another possible angle. Sure, she could be somewhat delusional in her goals and her behavior is far from nice, but they directly connect in many ways with those the Zarhard batch of Irregulars seem to have had when they were climbing. And, they are considered heros, however much the reader may agree or disagree with the outcome. ''Baam and company'' are the really odd ducks, by current Tower standards. So, the friction between Rachel and Baam could be seen as more clashing cultural interpretations of appropriate forms of heroism than a simple case of hero vs villain. But, of the two sides, Rachel is definitely down in the darker shades of morally grey by readers' standards.
* ArchEnemy: To Koon and Androssi, who both hate her for her manipulative nature and past relantionship with Baam.
* TheBeastMaster: [[spoiler:Po Bidau Gustang leaves her with a gift, a ferocious invisible beast loyal to her.]]
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Attempts to kill Baam by pushing him into dark waters to be eaten, and has continued keeping up the act of being a helpless damsel in front of Aguero for five years afterwards. [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow And he knew, and she knew he knew; she was only keeping up the act so he wouldn't know she knew he knew and so when the time came she could stab him in the back first.]]
* CantCatchUp: Her manipulation skills are top-notch, but her over-reliance on having [[CrutchCharacter strong allies]] to do the dirty work means many of her own skills don't grow as fast as they could, leading to Aguero outperforming her as a Light Bearer when they face each other in the Hell Train arc. The {{Irony}} there is... she actually performed pretty much at Aguero's level as a Light Bearer when they both started out, with a whole lot less practice under her belt (like Baam, the Tower was, for her, an eye-opener of new experiences). Which argues that her native skill (added to Irregular loophole bonuses) would actually be easily into genius levels, if she bothered to hone and exercise it.
* CoolTeacher: For all her faults, she's actually pretty good at teaching when she puts her mind to it. Just ask Baam, who still thinks what she did for him was pretty cool, ulterior motives or not.
* TheDulcineaEffect: What started out simple gets deconstructed like you wouldn't believe. Rachel is very good at playing Dulcinea, but she's a lot more [[PoisonousFriend poisonous]] than she is innocent, and uses her resulting {{Wounded Gazelle Gambit}}s for her own reasons on just about everybody. Baam was never ''entirely'' fooled by her, but his relationship was too important for him to make a fuss about the details for a very long time. And, it is justified in that she was the first person he can remember having any relationship with. This ain't healthy on many, many counts. Including for her world view and mental health, let alone his. Or, anybody else's.
* EntitledBastard: When Zahard's forces take Rachel and some of Baam's companions as hostages, Endorsi rescues Baam's companions while leaving Rachel's behind. Despite everything she herself has done, ''[[{{Hypocrite}} including]]'' escaping traps intended to kill Baam's companions and leaving them to die, Rachel feels outrage that Endorsi didn't rescue her too.
* EvilCounterpart: To Aguero. Both are lighthouse users who are skilled at manipulating others, and both are/were friends with Baam. However, Aguero learns to respect his allies enough to get his hands dirty to work alongside them and even grows to care for them enough to let them strike out more-or-less on their own in a widespread network of interconnections he can call on; while Rachel mostly sees her allies as tools to get her up the Tower, so she can easily completely dump them the minute they become less effective.
* FaceHeelTurn: While there's evidence suggesting she was a ManipulativeBitch even when she met Baam, she did sincerely care for him. The combination of Baam being TheChosenOne and her being manipulated by Headon turned her away from that. However, while this was her FaceHeelTurn chronologically, in story, she's presented as taking this when she pushes Baam into the lake.
* GreenEyedMonster: Is extremely jealous of Baam's status as [[TheChosenOne The Chosen One]], and it was that jealousy that made her want to climb the Tower herself instead of letting Baam have all the glory.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Her main motive. She wants to be the heroine of the story, and will attempt to jam herself into that position by any means necessary. She even tries to get rid of her original body and replace it with a completely different one generated from her idealized self.
** IJustWantToHaveFriends: At first, she envied Baam for being a MagneticHero, though she later settles for forming friendless alliances as the next best thing.
* HeroKiller: In Season 2 Ep 227, she kills Akraptor while Wangnan is held hostage by Yura.
* IKnowYouKnowIKnow: Was caught in a loop of this with Aguero for a while; he knows she's faking her illness and spies on her with his Lighthouse, but she knows his team is a fence to trap her because she spies on him with her Lighthouse. And, so on and so forth. As of this writing, everyone seems to know what everyone else knows about what they know, so this trope may no longer be in place. But, that could change.
* ImmuneToFate: Part of the Irregular package. Which plays a major part in ''completely'' messing with Hwa's ability to guide Baam through the Hell Train arc, although there are a few hints that misleading her goes back much further than that. There are unknowns about how much Rachel knows about her own "skill", and how much various people within FUG do.
* InvincibleVillain: Played with. On one hand, she and her allies are always one step ahead of Baam and co, to the point where they can OutGambit Hwa Ryun, who managed to OutGambit an opposing FUG faction. It helps that she's an Irregular and is harder for Guides to predict. On the other hand, her reluctance to get her hands dirty makes her seem ineffectual compared to many other tower climbers.
* ItGetsEasier: Invoked. She's shaken after killing Akraptor with her own hands, but she tells herself that she'll have to get used to it.
* {{Irony}}: Given her and Baams' interlocking skill-sets, they'd be a pretty unstoppable, hard-to-manipulate, Wave Controller-Lighthouse Keeper and Irregular core to any Tower-shaking team. Shame she can't see that, due to wanting to be the I in Team. She practically hands the awesome over to Aguero, and ensures that everybody dances on others' strings.
* LightIsNotGood: Has light skin, light blonde hair, uses a pseudonym of Michelle Light, and is a Light Bearer. Allthough her role as a villain isn't clear, she's still considered an antagonist to Baam is willing to use whatever (and whoever) she can to climb the Tower.
* ManipulativeBastard: She is; particularly where Baam is concerned. However, Koon has generally seen through her ruses. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, he hasn’t spotted ''all'' of them.]]
* MutualEnvy: Princess Androssi Zahard is jealous of Rachel over how dedicated Baam is towards her and would gladly give up her princess privileges to be with him. On the opposite side, Rachel is jealous of Androssi for being a beautiful princess like a fairytale heroine, while her feelings towards Baam are mixed at best and consist largely of envy.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Downplayed and possibly subverted. She's shaken by how she killed Akraptor and got blood on her hands, but it's implied that [[DirtyCoward she's merely too scared or nervous to do the deed herself easily]], since she has no issue with her comrades killing others -- however, she still battles with the realisation that not all on Baam's team may be as easily or lightly throw-away as she thought before rationalizing it within her "Tower Tale" framework.
* NonActionBigBad: Invoked and played with (what her ultimate role as an antagonist actually is is far from clear). While she does have very solid Lighthouse abilities from the start of her climb, she admits that she'd rather just rely on stronger teammates to rise to the top.
* PsychoticSmirk: Shows one after she detonates a bomb in [[spoiler:Koon]]'s heart, gloating about how she wanted to kill him with her own hands at the worst possible moment for him.
* SmugSnake: Gleefully prances about her room when she thinks no one’s looking, and has given “there’s no way you could understand my motivation” rants before.
* TheTeam:
--> '''Koon's Original Season 2 Team:''' Rachel, Koon, Ran, Novick, Dan, Gyetang, Apple, and Michael.
--> '''Rachel's Hell Train Dallar Show Team:''' Rachel, Hoaqin (White), Yura, Daniel, Raguel, Buelsar, Cassano, Traveller and Anna.
--> '''Rachel's 43rd Floor Expedition Team:''' Rachel, Hoaqin (White), Yura, Cassano, and Traveller.
--> '''Rachel's 43rd Floor Team:''' Rachel, Hoaqin (White), Yura, Traveller, Wangnan, and Miseng.
* TheUnchosenOne[=/=]TheChosenWannabe: Rareish anti-villainous (or whatever) example; kicking herself into a, if not ''the'', protagonist role via ScrewDestiny seems to be what motivates her entire plot arc. Headon basically seemed to promise her a way to become Unchosen, but... it remains to be seen if she can manage that. For now, she's a Wannabe with a very good shot. However, please note: if she hadn't tried to hijack Baam's ChosenOne status in the first place, [[MissedTheCall he'd still be stuck in that cave]], bored out of his gourd ''and'' left not knowing enough to know that getting out was even possible. Additionally, she knows about Baam's role as [[spoiler:Arlene Grace's child who will gain Enryu's Thorn and change the tower]], but she still wants to take that role for herself.
* WeCanRuleTogether: Once she discovers Wangnan [[spoiler:has the same ring as Karaka and that he's the Prince of the Red-Light District]], she asks him to team up with her in exchange for sparing Miseng and getting Cassano to return Horyang's half of their devil[[spoiler:, which he reluctantly and grudgingly accepts -- not just for Horyang's sake, but Miseng and Cassano's, too. Oh, and [[KeepingTheEnemyClose for a chance at Rachel]]: [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow she's cool with it]].]] Spotting a theme?
* WoundedGazelleGambit: Pretends that her injury makes her unable to walk to manipulate others into helping her.

to:

* AntiHero: The author's blog says ADayInTheLimelight:During the FUG arc.
* ArentYouGoingToRavishMe: A little downplayed but Yeon basically asked this when she found out
that Viole was a male and was staying in the same room. Suffice to say, Viole calmly expresses no interest in her body (and phrases it as such) which pisses off Yeon because... well... she's one of these. She a woman with pride in her figure.

** HeroOfAnotherStory: She certainly sees
strength to protect herself as the heroine of, at the very least, her own tale. She wants to make it the main one, however. But, as we mainly get to see things from Baam and company's side, we've pretty much only got getting killed in the crossfire of Yuri's attack, resulting in a PowerStrainBlackout since it went beyond her word on that. See below.

Including for her world view and mental health, let alone his. Or, anybody else's.
* EntitledBastard: When Zahard's forces take Rachel and some of Baam's companions as hostages, Endorsi rescues Baam's companions while leaving Rachel's behind. Despite everything she herself has done, ''[[{{Hypocrite}} including]]'' escaping traps intended to kill Baam's companions and leaving them to die, Rachel feels outrage that Endorsi didn't rescue her too.
* EvilCounterpart: To Aguero. Both are lighthouse users who are skilled at manipulating others, and both are/were friends with Baam. However, Aguero learns to respect his allies enough to get his hands dirty to work alongside them and even grows to care for them enough to let them strike out more-or-less on their own in a widespread network of interconnections he can call on; while Rachel mostly sees her allies as tools to get her up the Tower, so she can easily completely dump them the minute they become less effective.
* FaceHeelTurn: While there's evidence suggesting she was a ManipulativeBitch even when she met Baam, she did sincerely care for him. The combination of Baam being TheChosenOne and her being manipulated by Headon turned her away from that. However, while this was her FaceHeelTurn chronologically, in story, she's presented as taking this when she pushes Baam into the lake.
* GreenEyedMonster: Is extremely jealous of Baam's status as [[TheChosenOne The Chosen One]], and it was that jealousy that made her want to climb the Tower herself instead of letting Baam have all the glory.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Her main motive. She wants to be the heroine of the story, and will attempt to jam herself into that position by any means necessary. She even tries to get rid of her original body and replace it with a completely different one generated from her idealized self.
** IJustWantToHaveFriends: At first, she envied Baam for being a MagneticHero, though she later settles for forming friendless alliances as the next best thing.
* HeroKiller: In Season 2 Ep 227, she kills Akraptor while Wangnan is held hostage by Yura.
* IKnowYouKnowIKnow: Was caught in a loop of this with Aguero for a while; he knows she's faking her illness and spies on her with his Lighthouse, but she knows his team is a fence to trap her because she spies on him with her Lighthouse. And, so on and so forth. As of this writing, everyone seems to know what everyone else knows about what they know, so this trope may no longer be in place. But, that could change.
* ImmuneToFate: Part of the Irregular package. Which plays a major part in ''completely'' messing with Hwa's ability to guide Baam through the Hell Train arc, although there are a few hints that misleading her goes back much further than that. There are unknowns about how much Rachel knows about her own "skill", and how much various people within FUG do.
* InvincibleVillain: Played with. On one hand, she and her allies are always one step ahead of Baam and co, to the point where they can OutGambit Hwa Ryun, who managed to OutGambit an opposing FUG faction. It helps that she's an Irregular and is harder for Guides to predict. On the other hand, her reluctance to get her hands dirty makes her seem ineffectual compared to many other tower climbers.
* ItGetsEasier: Invoked.
PersonOfMassDestruction: Non-malevolent one. She's shaken after killing Akraptor with just clumsy.
** Subverted once [[spoiler:she awakens in
her own hands, but she tells herself battle against Angel]]. She really is that she'll have to get used to it.
powerful.
* {{Irony}}: Given her and Baams' interlocking skill-sets, they'd be a pretty unstoppable, hard-to-manipulate, Wave Controller-Lighthouse Keeper and Irregular core to any Tower-shaking team. Shame she can't see that, due to wanting to be the I in Team. PlayingWithFire: She practically hands the awesome over to Aguero, and ensures that everybody dances on others' strings.
* LightIsNotGood: Has light skin, light blonde hair,
uses a pseudonym of Michelle Light, and is a Light Bearer. Allthough her role as a villain isn't clear, she's still considered an antagonist shinsoo to Baam is willing to use whatever (and whoever) she can to climb the Tower.

* ManipulativeBastard: She is; particularly where Baam is concerned. However, Koon has generally seen through her ruses. PowerFloats: [[spoiler: Unfortunately, he hasn’t spotted ''all'' of them.When being controlled.]]
* MutualEnvy: Princess Androssi Zahard is jealous of Rachel over how dedicated Baam is towards ProperTightsWithASkirt: At least when [[KleptomaniacHero Baam]] isn't stealing [[RunningGag her and would gladly give up her princess privileges to tights]].
* RapunzelHair: Knee length.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: She is certainly dangerous, though less malevolent than most examples.
* StalkerWithACrush: Might as well
be with him. On the opposite side, Rachel is jealous of Androssi for being a beautiful princess like a fairytale heroine, while her feelings towards Baam are mixed at best and consist largely of envy.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Downplayed and possibly subverted. She's shaken by how she killed Akraptor and got blood on her hands, but it's implied that [[DirtyCoward she's merely too scared or nervous to do the deed herself easily]],
since she has no issue reason/obligation to follow Viole and does so out of excuses. This is brought to full circle during Viole and Androssi's date where she spies on them with an annoyed look on her comrades killing others -- however, she still battles with the realisation that not all on Baam's team may be as easily or lightly throw-away as she thought before rationalizing it within her "Tower Tale" framework.

* TheUnchosenOne[=/=]TheChosenWannabe: Rareish anti-villainous (or whatever) example; kicking herself into a, if not ''the'', protagonist role via ScrewDestiny seems TeamKiller: Was reputed to be what motivates her entire plot arc. Headon basically seemed to promise her a way to become Unchosen, but... it remains to be seen if this.

However, please note: if she hadn't tried to hijack Baam's ChosenOne status in the first place, [[MissedTheCall he'd still be stuck in that cave]], bored out of his gourd ''and'' left not knowing enough to know that getting out was even possible.

!!'''Rachel'''

[[quoteright:297:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/racheltog_7421.jpg]]
%%[[caption-width-right:297:some caption text]]
->'''Tower Position:''' Light-Bearer

Baam's first and best friend who freed him from a dark prison, but then decides to leave him to search for a starry sky (aka: absolute freedom). Baam follows her, the plot begins, and awesomeness ensues. Rachel is viewed to be an ugly tomboyish girl who has nothing special about her whatsoever. As a result, she's forced to get by through the words she speaks, whether it be using the truth or through lies. Rachel is also an Irregular, but an unusual one that was not chosen by the Tower. She had actually snuck in thanks to the effort of another Irregular, Baam, when he forced the door open right below her.

In season 1, Rachel is discovered to not be that far behind Baam's arrival on the Floor of Tests after she was summoned into the Tower. She goes by the moniker of Michelle Light to evade Baam after realizing that the two of them are in the same test group. However, they're eventually forced to reunite after her legs had become crippled. So in order to continue being with Rachel, Baam decides to become her legs, and takes a special final 2nd Floor exam with her to make sure that her injury doesn't cause her to fail out of the Tower. In the end, Rachel betrays Baam by showing that her legs are perfectly fine, pushes him into the dark abyss at the last second as she goes on to complete the final 2nd Floor test with everyone else.

The season 1 epilogue reveals that Rachel was forced to watch Baam complete Headon's 1st Floor test that she didn't have the will to do, and as a result, she believes that he took everything that was meant for her. Headon makes a deal with Rachel that if she does a favor for it, she will become the actual heroine of the story. Headon provides his Akryung minion to help Rachel through the initial tests, and teams up with Yu Han Sung to make sure that Baam does not make it beyond the Tower's 2nd Floor.

* CallToAdventure: Once upon a time, a girl somehow found a cave, opened it and made friends with the boy she found inside it... Plot ensues.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Yellow hair, yellow eyes.
* DamselInDistress: After getting stabbed by Ho. However, [[DeliberatelyDistressedDamsel she’s faking it.]]
* TheDulcineaEffect: She's Baam's Dulcinea, and the trope starts out playing as straight as they come. However... see the next section.
* IllGirl: She loses the use of her legs after Ho stabs her. However, she’s faking it and fools almost nobody; the doctor who examined her said there was no lasting damage.
* MeaningfulName: According to the author's blog, her name was chosen because "In Sherlock Holmes, there is a reference to the word Rache(Rah-he) that means revenge in German."
* NonPOVProtagonist: For a character who's hardly ever on screen, she provides a lot of fuel for the story, as well as prodding a great deal of the main cast into moving in various important directions. Both deliberately and accidentally; positive and negative.
* RidiculouslyAverageGuy: Comes across as this. Except for her being able to use and endure Shinsoo… like, well... ''everybody else''. She's a quick study, however, to get as good with lightboxes as fast as she does. Like Baam, she starts knowing very little about basic aspects of the Tower, and it puts her at a disadvantage.
** According to WordOfGod, she is indeed an Irregular like Baam, which means she ''might'' have abilities we haven't seen... but if so, there's been no hint of them beyond that.

!!Rachel in Season 2

In season 2, Rachel continues to climb the Tower, and manages to escape Koon watching over her since she knew that he knew about her betraying Baam. Rachel would then form a new team of her own, and infiltrates the Workshop Battle to take control of Emile; an intelligent chatting bot that she uses to manipulate certain Tower events to her liking. Her team would then board the Hell Train in order to gain a powerful ally in White, a FUG Slayer who had been sealed away within the express. Rachel then journeys to the 43rd Floor of Death in order to obtain a Thorn weapon of her own, and even manages to convince Wangnan to join her group after his Tangsooyook team failed in taking away one of her teammates.

On the Floor of Death, Rachel's plan is thrown out of wack after the FUG Slayer, Karaka, forces himself into the group in order to support White's resurrection. Rachel manages to get away from Karaka in order to reach Baam, but is unable to convince him to run away after Baam reveals to her that he needs to continue going forward since he not only knows about Arlen Grace's existence (who Rachel knows about), but also has a new goal other than just continuously chasing after Rachel. Despite that, Baam allows Rachel to take part in the test that will provide the location of the Floor of Test's Thorn, but she ends up getting poisoned and knocked out during said test. However, Baam makes a deal with the Great Family leader, Po Bidau Gustang, to have her healed in return for agreeing to help Gustang with a task he needs done. Upon waking up, Rachel sees that an item was left for her; not knowing that it was from Gustang.
----

* AntiHero: The author's blog says that she's one of these. She is certainly one of the most ruthless characters.
** ClassicalAntiHero: Her ''real'' introduction at the end of the first volume is devoted specifically to showing her lack of classical heroic qualities, and one of the main themes of the story seems to be deconstructing just what those qualities mean.
** NominalHero: Also possible, although it's hard to tell for sure since we don't know her full motivations or the details of the deals she's struck; it's possible that she's another type of anti-hero or just a straight-up villain.
** HeroOfAnotherStory: She certainly sees herself as the heroine of, at the very least, her own tale. She wants to make it the main one, however. But, as we mainly get to see things from Baam and company's side, we've pretty much only got her word on that. See below.
** HeroAntagonist: Another possible angle. Sure, she could be somewhat delusional in her goals and her behavior is far from nice, but they directly connect in many ways with those the Zarhard batch of Irregulars seem to have had when they were climbing. And, they are considered heros, however much the reader may agree or disagree with the outcome. ''Baam and company'' are the really odd ducks, by current Tower standards. So, the friction between Rachel and Baam could be seen as more clashing cultural interpretations of appropriate forms of heroism than a simple case of hero vs villain. But, of the two sides, Rachel is definitely down in the darker shades of morally grey by readers' standards.
* ArchEnemy: To Koon and Androssi, who both hate her for her manipulative nature and past relantionship with Baam.
* TheBeastMaster: [[spoiler:Po Bidau Gustang leaves her with a gift, a ferocious invisible beast loyal to her.]]
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Attempts to kill Baam by pushing him into dark waters to be eaten, and has continued keeping up the act of being a helpless damsel in front of Aguero for five years afterwards. [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow And he knew, and she knew he knew; she was only keeping up the act so he wouldn't know she knew he knew and so when the time came she could stab him in the back first.]]
* CantCatchUp: Her manipulation skills are top-notch, but her over-reliance on having [[CrutchCharacter strong allies]] to do the dirty work means many of her own skills don't grow as fast as they could, leading to Aguero outperforming her as a Light Bearer when they face each other in the Hell Train arc. The {{Irony}} there is... she actually performed pretty much at Aguero's level as a Light Bearer when they both started out, with a whole lot less practice under her belt (like Baam, the Tower was, for her, an eye-opener of new experiences). Which argues that her native skill (added to Irregular loophole bonuses) would actually be easily into genius levels, if she bothered to hone and exercise it.
* CoolTeacher: For all her faults, she's actually pretty good at teaching when she puts her mind to it. Just ask Baam, who still thinks what she did for him was pretty cool, ulterior motives or not.
* TheDulcineaEffect: What started out simple gets deconstructed like you wouldn't believe. Rachel is very good at playing Dulcinea, but she's a lot more [[PoisonousFriend poisonous]] than she is innocent, and uses her resulting {{Wounded Gazelle Gambit}}s for her own reasons on just about everybody. Baam was never ''entirely'' fooled by her, but his relationship was too important for him to make a fuss about the details for a very long time. And, it is justified in that she was the first person he can remember having any relationship with. This ain't healthy on many, many counts. Including for her world view and mental health, let alone his. Or, anybody else's.
* EntitledBastard: When Zahard's forces take Rachel and some of Baam's companions as hostages, Endorsi rescues Baam's companions while leaving Rachel's behind. Despite everything she herself has done, ''[[{{Hypocrite}} including]]'' escaping traps intended to kill Baam's companions and leaving them to die, Rachel feels outrage that Endorsi didn't rescue her too.
* EvilCounterpart: To Aguero. Both are lighthouse users who are skilled at manipulating others, and both are/were friends with Baam. However, Aguero learns to respect his allies enough to get his hands dirty to work alongside them and even grows to care for them enough to let them strike out more-or-less on their own in a widespread network of interconnections he can call on; while Rachel mostly sees her allies as tools to get her up the Tower, so she can easily completely dump them the minute they become less effective.
* FaceHeelTurn: While there's evidence suggesting she was a ManipulativeBitch even when she met Baam, she did sincerely care for him. The combination of Baam being TheChosenOne and her being manipulated by Headon turned her away from that. However, while this was her FaceHeelTurn chronologically, in story, she's presented as taking this when she pushes Baam into the lake.

* {{Irony}}: Given her and Baams' interlocking skill-sets, they'd be a pretty unstoppable, hard-to-manipulate, Wave Controller-Lighthouse Keeper and Irregular core to any Tower-shaking team. Shame she can't see that, due to wanting to be the I in Team. She practically hands the awesome over to Aguero, and ensures that everybody dances on others' strings.
* LightIsNotGood: Has light skin, light blonde hair, uses a pseudonym of Michelle Light, and is a Light Bearer. Allthough her role as a villain isn't clear, she's still considered an antagonist to Baam is willing to use whatever (and whoever) she can to climb the Tower.
* ManipulativeBastard: She is; particularly where Baam is concerned. However, Koon has generally seen through her ruses. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, he hasn’t spotted ''all'' of them.]]
