** This is lampshaded by the Athlete; he can tell with just one look that the Beast isn't the Prince and thinks it's downright hilarious that she has everyone else on the ship fooled. This is likely because they're cousins and they've known each other since they were kids.


Winning the contest is a bit of a daunting task for the Beast, as her brother is (rightfully) known as quite the notorious douche amongst his peers. This means she will have to do a lot of legwork to swing some votes in his favor, but she must at same time careful not to raise too much suspension by acting overly nice or kind--as this would be seen as rather out of character for him--lest she be exposed as an imposter, and spend the rest of the cruise locked in the cargo hold. At the same time, though, there are plenty of hot young women along on the cruise; who is to say that the Beast cannot try to get to know some of them a bit more ''intimately''?

The Beast is a motorcycle-riding, leather-jacket-wearing, sex-addicted lesbian who has a reputation of being quite a heartbreaker. But she's not doing well at school, and so her very rich daddy may take her bike away. Her [[HalfIdenticalTwin Half-Identical Twin Brother]], the Prince, is a ManipulativeBastard who's on top of the social pile at his ElaborateUniversityHigh. He'll help her out, but for a price -- his class is going on a fancy one-week cruise, and he wants her to infiltrate the cruise disguised as him, where she is to win a popularity contest in his place.

* ArrangedMarriage: The Beauty / The Princess is being set up for a marriage of convenience with the President. [[spoiler: Depending on your choices, you could get her out of this arrangement.]]
* BiTheWay: The Beast can become this, depending on their choices in game and whom they choose to form a relationship with.
* BondageIsBad: Subverted. The eroge presents BDSM (for the most part) as a healthy, enjoyable thing. Some of the people who practise it are arguably bad folk, but least of all because of their kinks. The game even starts with disclaimers emphasising the importance of consent and power exchange.
* BrainsAndBondage: The Beauty is something of an intellectual. Her sub, The Beast, isn't at all.
* ButchLesbian: Downplayed. The Beast herself is more androgynous in her appearance than overtly masculine. Her personal wardrobe does have "butch" elements to it though, like her [[HellBentForLeather biker jacket]] and heavy-duty work boots.

* CameraFiend: The Photographer is this, apparently being a famous Instagram celebrity and also the person-in-charge of the school yearbook.



* DumbJock: The Athlete / The Bro [[spoiler:, who turns out to be the twins' cousin,]] is this, and it's lampshaded and discussed as his main appeal towards girls.
* DeadpanSnarker: The Beast gets in a few good ones at the Prince's expense.



* LadyLooksLikeADude: The Beast is rather flat-chested and has androgynous facial features. This, of course, helps her to easier masquerade as her twin brother.
* ManipulativeBastard: The game. Everyone wants something, everyone manipulates people to get it. The popularity contest just makes it more visible and the social capital more tangible.
* NoNameGiven: Every single character. When a character is introduced, you have a choice of a default title or an alternate title to call them by (e.g. "the Athlete" or "the Bro"), or entering your own. [[spoiler:The only exception is the twins' Father whose name is revealed near the very end (and, by proxy, is implied to be the Prince's name as well). [[AllThereInTheManual Epilogue C]] reveals the Beast's full name via a FreezeFrameBonus of her high school report card]].
* PolarOppositeTwins: Being HalfIdenticalTwins aside, part of what makes the TwinSwitch difficult for the Beast is the ''huge'' difference in the siblings' core personalities: the Prince is shown to be a callous (and generally asexual/aromantic) MagnificentBastard who happens to be [[InsufferableGenius very well-educated]], while the Beast is shown (and implied by most available choices) to be an affable (and ''extremely flirtatious'') NaiveNewcomer who is also [[BookDumb failing in many of her classes]].
* RichBitch: The Prince is a rare GenderFlipped example of the trope.
* SafeSaneAndConsensual: Paraphrased by the eroge on booting up. Also pretty heavily emphasized by The Beauty, who will both put The Beast through all manner of physical and emotional abuse, but also insists on stopping everything to care for The Beast at the first indication that she's gone too far and actually risked ''harming'' her sub.
* ShrinkingViolet: The Stalker, who knows what she wants but is much to scared to ask. Additionally, the Nerd is normally outspoken, except when it comes to romance.
* SnarkToSnarkCombat: Expect pretty much ''all'' characters to engage in this at some point. The Beast, being our FirstPersonSmartass, gets the most opportunities to engage in this.
* StudentCouncilPresident: There is one in the story who serves as TheRival, aptly nicknamed either [[CaptainObvious The President / The Rival]] by default.
