In the war-torn land of Orocu, dark-elf Fraylia tries to make a living as a mercenary to support herself and her adopted little brother Ruse. Unfortunately, non-humans are discriminated against, and so Fraylia's employment options involve either dangerous or degrading work. Precisely how dangerous and degrading depends on the player's decisions.

* BlindIdiotTranslation: It's very obvious that the English translation was done by someone with a very poor grasp of the language. Grammar and spelling errors abound, and the names of characters and things is often inconsistent.

Added DiffLines:

* OppressedMinorityVeteran: Freylia came to Orocu during the GreatOffscreenWar, where she served as a mercenary in Orocu's army. After the war, the government stiffed her because she was a dark elf, and, lacking the money to return home, she became a permanent member of Orocu's immigrant underclass, eking out a living by undertaking dangerous and potentially degrading jobs.

Added DiffLines:

* BeginWithAFinisher: Vanessa usually uses all of her strongest magical attacks first, for all the good it does -- by the time you fight her, you're likely to be too powerful for her to be defeated by a handful of magical attacks.

* SenselessSacrifice: [[spoiler:Trying to throw the fight with the Futanian Tribal Elder won't result in her being spared; If Fraylia fails to kill her, Simon steps in and finishes the job.]]



* UngratefulBastard: [[spoiler:If you kill Grimm while holding a reputation as a "Sinner", the Guild disavows Fraylia's activities and thus she is blamed for the death of the king and spends the rest of her life in a secret prison.]]

to:

* UngratefulBastard: UngratefulBastard:
** In the opening scene, Fraylia complains bitterly that she came to Orocu during the World War because dark elves were valuable to the human-led government, but now that the war is over, she's an outcast.

** [[spoiler:In the "Good Slave" ending, women throughout Orocu have their bodies magically altered so that they can spend the rest of their lives bearing children for demons.]]



* BadFuture: [[spoiler:On the "Slave" path, defeating the Guild President removes the last obstacle to the King's plan to unleash demons on Orocu. Most of the country's men are wiped out, and women are spared only as long as they can bear children for demons.]]



* BreakTheCutie: One of the missions on the "Slave" career path is to capture Vanessa so that she can be broken.

Added DiffLines:

* HeelRealization: [[spoiler:Towards the end of the "Slave" path, Fraylia starts to realize that all the missions she's undertaking for Kiltia are actually pushing Orocu closer to war.]]

* BigBad: Grimm, an evil sorcerer with designs on destroying Orocu.

rest of her life imprisoned in Kirtia, forced to bear children for orcs, and as an added kicker, one of her trysts is witnessed by Ruse, thus destroying their relationship forever. If she ''defeats'' the Guild President, on the other hand, Orocu goes to shit, millions of women are forced into sexual slavery, and Ruse is forced to have sex with Fraylia and then gets taken away to some unknown but probably horrible fate.]]
* BigBad: Grimm, an evil sorcerer demon with designs on destroying Orocu.


Added DiffLines:

* FullFrontalAssault: On the "Slave" path, Fraylia undertakes several missions equipped with only a sword and a collar. She eventually gets her armor back, but also gains the option to disrobe at will.


Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog: [[spoiler:In the "Good Slave" ending, Fraylia's "reward" for bringing about the destruction of Orocu is having sex with Ruse and then watching as he's taken away, possibly to be executed.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ShamefulStrip: On the "Slave" path, Fraylia has to spend several missions fighting in the nude.


* {{Asexual}}: Dr. Isaac is quite possibly the only man in all of Orocu who is explicitly disinterested in sex.



* BreakTheCutie: One of the missions on the "Slave" career path is to capture Vanessa so that she can be broken.



* CallAPegasusAHippogriff: Due to the poor translation, the English version uses the word "orc" to describe a wide variety of monsters, which can create confusion with weapons or skills that supposedly give you a special damage bonus against "orcs". The most egregious case of this trope in the game is "Danny the Orc", who is very clearly a werewolf.
* CelibateHero: On the "Normal" path, Fraylia reacts with hostility towards anything having to do with sex.

* CelibateHero: On the "Normal" "Virgin" path, Fraylia reacts with hostility towards anything having to do with sex.



* JustFollowingOrders: One of the "Slave" missions requires Fraylia to track down and kill the leader of the peaceful Futanian tribe. Fraylia notes that there is little strategic point in attacking the Futanians, but disobeying orders won't end well for her. [[spoiler:And deliberately losing accomplishes nothing; if Fraylia actually fails to kill the Futanian Elder, then Simon shows up and kills the elder anyway.]]



* LieBackAndThinkOfEngland: On the "Slave" path, Fraylia is repeatedly pimped out to various people on the pretense of improving Orocu's diplomatic standing.
* MadScientist: Dr. Isaac is Orocu's premier expert in the field of robots. Among his theories is that robots should be able to get erections.



* TheMenInBlack: Marcus runs Orocu's spy network and Kiltia prison, whose inmates are often forced to undertake missions that are too sensitive for the normal guild.



* ObligatoryWarCrimeScene: [[spoiler:After Fraylia destroys the Immortal organization, the player is treated to a scene of the elves getting wiped out by the orcs. Just in case there's any confusion as to whether or not this is a good thing, we see some poor elf girl getting raped.]]



* PrisonRape: Failing certain missions results in Fraylia being framed for a crime (usually a crime she was hired to prevent in the first place) and getting sent to Kilitia, a secret prison. One of the first things that happens to her there is being forced to share a cell with a whole bunch of men, with precisely the results you'd expect. A cursory look around the prison shows that there are other prisoners forced to suffer this. [[spoiler:And one of the bad endings has her sentenced to prison for murdering the king.]]

* HopeSpot: [[spoiler:Defeating Grimm causes his lair to collapse. If Fraylia has a good reputation at the end, she is saved at the last minute by the President and goes on to have a happy ending. If she has a ''bad'' reputation, she survives... and then spends the rest of her life in prison as a scapegoat for the king's death.]]

* YetAnotherStupidDeath: In the later chapters, it becomes possible to enter the warehouse down by the docks at night. This is, of course, the same warehouse that the game repeatedly warns you to stay away from. Entering it and trying to accost the robbers holed up inside results in Fraylia being drugged and gang-raped. There is no material benefit to actually entering the warehouse.

Added DiffLines:

* BabiesEverAfter: [[spoiler:In the "Chaste" ending, Fraylia realizes that she is in love with Ruse and the two consummate their relationship and move out to the country, where Fraylia becomes pregnant with Ruse's child.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ForgetsToEat: [[spoiler:In the "Virgin" ending, Ruse grows up to be a diligent researcher, but with no romantic life to speak of, he devotes all of his time to his work, and Fraylia has to remind him to eat and sleep.]]


* BunnyEarsLawyer: If Fraylia takes the "Sinner" path to extremes, some of her fellow Guild members will begin wondering why the hell the Guild still employs her, at which point the President will point out that nobody else was taking on the jobs that Fraylia took on.

* InformedAttribute: Fraylia is called a "dark elf" and all of the narration and dialogue insists that she has unusually dark skin, but the actual art makes her look like a white woman with a slight tan, and the presumably "normal" elves that we see in the game only look marginally whiter.
