* LovecraftianSuperpower: A few of the staff members. Pretty much the only one who uses them is Charlotte [=LeStrange=].
* MagicMisfire: Faculty member Amelia Luceat tells Charlotte how there were grimoire authors who created spell books which were deliberately written so that the spells and curses within would befall the people who read the book instead of their intended target. She has extensive facial scars from learning this the hard way.

* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: Played With. [[spoiler:During the climax, Charlotte confronts a hive mind called Living Heaven led by her old friend Rummin Fletcher. Rummin tries to convince Charlotte to merge with the collective because it’s such a euphoric experience and announces that their plan is to break out of the university and absorb every human. Charlotte gives a desperate plea that humans need their free will, even if they choose to be assholes. Rummin initially rejects that argument, but the rest of the collective realizes that inviting toxic personalities in could harsh their buzz, so they should only let nice people in. Ultimately they decide to let Charlotte go if she spreads the word there’s a pleasant hive mind to join beneath Miskatonic University, which surely some like-minded but lonely people will use their free will to join, so potentially win-win.]]

* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Lampshaded by Charlotte [=LeStrange=]. When she gets praised for how she makes the staff feel safer since there hasn’t been a single accident since she started working, Charlotte irately says it's because everyone seemingly just stands in the hallways chatting.



* SkewedPriorities: Mindy in the Morning's anger in hearing that [[spoiler: there is a HiveMind in the basement that could cover the world in its fleshy glory]] is not about Charlotte's involvement in the whole affair or the inherent danger to the world; it's that Mindy just finally got tenure, and now Miskatonic's [[spoiler: a university with no staff]] and her paychecks are suddenly at risk.

Added DiffLines:

* BookDumb: Charlotte did poorly in elementary school as a child, and was then pulled out of schooling entirely when she was nine to join the Chesuncook Coven once her aptitude for occult studies became clear. This does have a direct effect on her logical thinking and general knowledge of the world.

* BigAnimeEyes: Charlotte has noticeably larger eyes than most of the University's residents, and it makes her look cute... right up until she reveals just why those eyes are special.

Nutty Annie admits she doesn’t know herself, but admits the constant switching from floor to ceiling plays hell on her breasts.

Charlotte [=LeStrange=] comes across a disembodied human nervous system with worms protruding from it and says “Look at this sick awesome thing!”


Charlotte LeStrange is a witch from Maine who lives in a world where all H. P. Lovecraft’s monsters are not only real but accepted as a fact of life. She’s recently been hired as a security guard for Miskatonic University. Acquainting herself with the faculty, she comes across a conspiracy that’s nefarious even by the standards of her society. With a ragtag crew that includes a cannibal and a few Eldritch abominations, LeStrange is determined to get to the bottom of it. Even though we know she’ll end up ruining everything.

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Averted. [[spoiler:The hivemind the students and faculty merge into is in a sense what the coven Charlotte LeStrange came from wanted: A utopia where everyone is blissfully connected, particularly in a sexual sense. Still, even before the hivemind existed Charlotte said that it would violate people’s free will to force them to join any such group, which was a deal breaker for her.]]
* BlackComedyCannibalism: Nutty Annie, which she uses primarily to tease Charlotte LeStrange.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: Inverted. Charlotte LeStrange’s LovecraftianSuperpower “magic eyes” makes them go black. It looks evil and creepy, but she only means to use it for benign or benevolent purposes such as freeing a character from a vat of malignant goo.

* NightmareFetishist: Common. Charlotte LeStrange comes across a disembodied human nervous system with worms protruding from it and says “Look at this sick awesome thing!”
* NoodleIncident: Charlotte LeStrange looks at a map of the world and asks if it’s accurate because land masses are missing or have been added. Presumably this is related to alien gods taking over, but it’s not explained how or why.

She even dares the university to stop her. All this is done completely unarmed EVEN THOUGH SHE KNOWS SHE HAS A WEAPON IN HER QUARTERS! It’s explicitly pretty true to the character.]]

* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu?: Done to the Abomination himself to the point where it becomes routine. Since in Lovecraft’s original CallOfCthulhu the titular character’s temporarily neutralized by being hit in the head by a ship, in this game it’s become regular naval practice to drive a ship through his damaged body to make sure he never fully regenerates. Parts of his skin are even collected and used as a sort of tracking device since the fact the body is always trying to pull itself back together means the tentacles are always pointing towards where he is at any time.
