-->'''Auralee:''' --and rescue fair maidens and lads in distress! Who fall in love with the knights, and the knights sigh and go "I'm sorry, but my heart belongs to the path of justice and righteousness!" "Oh, Lady Knight", they cry, "then take my rose as a symbol--"


Added DiffLines:

* FaceYourFears: Auralee has a particular fear of earthquakes, dating back to being in a serious one as a child. Towards the end, she has to [[spoiler:face Dervishi, a "merchant" trafficking in dragon remains who can use their magic to create earthquakes]].


Added DiffLines:

* KleptomaniacHero: The prevalence of this trope in other games is given a nod in some of the advice Auralee's mother gives her as she leaves home: "And remember! Be sure to check every barrel, crate, and chest in town! The residents don't mind if you find something useful!" Auralee responds that she's pretty sure that's stealing.


Added DiffLines:

* RetiredBadass: Lady Bayard, Auralee's mother, was a famous knight and adventurer. When she writes a letter asking that Auralee be accepted as a knight, it's noted that Lady Bayard's accumulated titles are longer than the rest of the letter, and her reputation certainly still carries weight at the Argent Valere Guild.


* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Ilmari and Kerr return to their world to tell their masters about the sacrilegious black market trade of dragon remains, knowing full well the ensuing political turmoil means travel to the human world will likely be shut down, and Auralee has lost her dream of becoming a knight. However, the dragons are optimistic they'll eventually be allowed to return someday, Auralee has found a new dream to pursue, and all three are adamant that, no matter what, they'll find a way to see each other again.]]



* TheResenter: Ilmari reveals [[spoiler:he feels like this towards Kerr. He studied heavenkind, learned the language, learned the transformation spell, and did everything he could to be chosen to travel to the human world, but was never picked; Kerr meanwhile just got it handed to him. He is ashamed of feeling this way, though.]]



* YourNormalIsOurTaboo: Ilmari really doesn't understand why Auralee might feel uncomfortable about sleeping alongside him after they've just started dating.

* GenreSavvy: When Auralee mentions that she found two guys in the woods and she wants to take them in, her mother immediately asks her if they have any strange jewels or a dark and troubled past. When Auralee confirms they do not, she sighs in relief, commenting that those kinds tend to be trouble.


* TheMediator: Ilmari between Kerr and Auralee at times.


* ShoutOut: When you choose the chicken quest, Auralee mentions that Ilmari quickly learns that if you pick on chickens long enough, [[TheLegendOfZelda eventually they'll gang up on you]].

Added DiffLines:

* SleevesAreForWimps: Although he didn't choose them, Kerr's sleeveless shirt fits his attitude snugly.

Added DiffLines:

* PurpleEyes: Kerr. It's one of the first hints Auralee gets (aside from his unusual ears) that Kerr is special or possibly not human.

Added DiffLines:

* HatesBeingTouched: Kerr, though whether it's mostly due to his anti-social behaviour or being unfamiliar with his human form is left uncertain.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassArmFold: Kerr's default pose.


* OurDragonsAreDifferent: They seem to have their own civilisation, though one lower-tech than that of humans. Though dragons in general are worshipped by humans, it's not too uncommon to see dragons in human form in the bigger cities. And there are actually two kinds of dragons: land dragons like Kerr, and ''eurius'', or water dragons, like Ilmari.

When Auralee confirms they do not, she sighs in relief, commenting that those kinds tend to be trouble.


Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: All characters, except Ilmari, whose name refers to the air, as he was originally intended to be an air elemental dragon rather than a water one.


* CultureClash: Occasionally between the dragons and Auralee. It happens most often when it comes to physical affection - dragons are a ''lot'' touchier than humans tend to be.



* MotorMouth: Both Auralee and Ilmari when on a topic they're interested in.



* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Auralee does note that Ilmari's bright blue hair stands out in a crowd.

Added DiffLines:

* FriendOrIdolDecision: [[spoiler:Auralee ultimately has to decide between holding on to her dream of becoming a knight or helping Kerr and Ilmari stop a merchant company from disrespecting the entire dragon species. She doesn't hesitate to choose them, but she's not too happy about it afterwards, either.]]


Added DiffLines:

* PlatonicLifePartners: Whoever you don't choose to end up with will become like this to Auralee (and to a lesser extent the other guy), or you can just go with the friendship ending and make them all platonic life partners.


Added DiffLines:

* SleepCute: To dragons, sleeping together is called 'bonding' and is normal among dragons who even only know each other a little. Naturally, there are a couple of cute scenes involving the dragons and/or Auralee sleeping together.

Added DiffLines:

* DragonHoard: Ilmari collects interesting rocks. When she hears, Auralee laughs because it sounds so much less impressive than the gold or crystal dragon hoards she normally hears about. Ilmari replies he wouldn't mind collecting glass objects, too.

Added DiffLines:

* AllThereInTheManual: The free artbook provides a lot more information about the world and how it works, only some of which is brought up in the game itself.
