It's strongly suggested you finish the game before reading any further.≤----≤[[foldercontrol]]≤≤[[folder:Flower Kid]]≤The player character. They used to work as a flower delivery person before coming to the Habitat. They can only communicate by nodding or shaking their head.≤----≤* AllLovingHero: They have a reputation as such, since a few other characters apparently have fond memories of them from before the Habitat, they end up cheering up all of the Habiticians, and [[spoiler:can even trigger Dr. Habit's HeelRealization and set him on the path to redemption, provided they have the right items.]] Dallas even calls them "flower child" a few times.≤* AmbiguousGender: Since the player is meant to put themselves in Flower Kid's shoes, their gender is never stated.≤* ChronicHeroSyndrome: They can cheer up all of the Habiticians alone.≤* FlowerMotifs: They delivered flowers prior to joining the Habitat, and flowers come up a lot during their story, such as growing flowers for Trencil and listening to him talk about it, receiving a painting of flowers from Dallas and hanging it up in their room, and [[spoiler:growing a Tooth Lily for Habit, if the player chooses to. This also may be one of the reasons Habit points out why they're NotSoDifferent from him, since they both have an interest in flowers and know how to cultivate a flower as gentle and rare as a Tooth Lily.]]≤* {{Foil}}: Arguably, to Dr. Habit. Both of them are associated with flowers, and they share an end goal of making all of the Habiticians happy, but through vastly different means and for vastly different reasons. Flower Kid has a reputation as an AllLovingHero among the Habiticians while Habit is regarded as a mystery at best and a total creepshow at worst (albeit justifiably). While Flower Kid comes across as altruistic while helping the Habiticians, Habit is very insistent that they only smile for ''him,'' [[spoiler:and is revealed to have very ''odd'' ideas about what it means to make people happy, anyway.]] And while playing as Flower Kid means paying attention to each Habitician's individual issues and desires in order to cheer them up one at a time, Habit's "Big Event" involves [[spoiler:gassing them with nitrous oxide all at once as a sort of blanket solution, without actually solving any of their problems - instead, the gas just makes them forget what they were so worried about to begin with.]]≤* NotSoDifferent: Also to Dr. Habit, namely due to their [[spoiler:mutual interest in flowers]] and apparent desire to cheer all of the Habitat's residents up. Dr. Habit himself even remarks on their similarities, albeit unfavorably.≤--> '''Dr. Habit''': You remind me of myself. :,-)\≤'''Dr. Habit''': ...And I hate it! :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)≤* SilentProtagonist: Seemingly unable to speak, so they instead communicate by nodding or shaking their head.≤* VagueAge: Everyone calls them some variation of "kid," but Millie insists she's younger, and Jerafina flirts shamelessly with them.≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Dr. Boris Habit]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Gabe Lane'''≤[[quoteright:350:]] ≤The creator and overseer of The Habitat. His main objective is to draw in as many estranged, traumatized, or otherwise depressed people as possible to the Habitat for the "Big Event".≤----≤* AbusiveParents: His father [[spoiler:is shown to have beat him bloody at least once during his childhood, and he later mentions it having cost him a few teeth.]]≤* AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle: Seems to speak this way, if the way his dialogue is typed out is any indication.≤* AmbiguouslyGay: It's implied that [[spoiler: the reason his father beat him as a child was because of his more effeminate behaviors,]] but he never shows signs of attraction to anyone in the game proper. That being said, one of the Steam trading cards [[ has him sending a plethora of Valentine's Day gifts]] to Kamal, along with a framed photograph of himself apparently intended for Kamal to ''kiss'', according to the card's description (which is written in a more exaggerated version of [[AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle Habitspeak]]):≤--> "hI, Kamal, it is mee, Dr Habit!!!! I maded you LOTS of valvbentines day e cards,, u even hav a framed pikture of me to kiss when u r lonely. : - ) hab a nice day!"≤* AmbiguouslyHuman: It isn't given much explicit notice, in favour of focusing on Habit's very human backstory and motives, but there is something strange about him. Even in a world where vampires exist, Habit is an oddity. He can't be photographed, only showing up as a silhouette with two red eyes and a large grin whenever the player tries. He is very, very tall (second only to Borbra and possibly Mirphy - Yugo Limbo [[ confirms him to stand at 7'4"]]) and has naturally "sharp" fingers that he's complained about on the official Twitter account. He has the ability to 'speak' emojis somehow. And of course, there's the fact that he is ultimately held back by morals instead of physical ability when it comes to [[spoiler: stealing other people's teeth and putting them in his own mouth]] since by the time you meet in person, he's amassed [[spoiler: three rows]] with no ill effects. ≤* BigBrotherIsWatching: Always knows what everyone is doing at the Habitat thanks to the security cameras. ≤* BlueAndOrangeMorality: He genuinely wants to make people smile. The problem just lies in [[InsaneTrollLogic his]] [[DepravedDentist methods]].≤* DepravedDentist: [[spoiler: He evokes this by strapping Flower Kid to a dentist's chair and threatening to remove all of their teeth to make his own smile even bigger.]] It's unknown if he was this [[spoiler:back when he actually ''was'' a dentist, but it's at least implied that it wasn't nearly as painless as he makes it out to be in his journal entries.]]≤* EvilRedhead: Has a mane of long, curly red hair, and is the antagonist of the game.≤* FatherlyScientist: Implied. He isn't seen interacting with the Carlas onscreen, but they refer to him as "dad" and regard each other as siblings. ≤* FlowerMotifs: [[spoiler:Habit has been interested in flowers since he was a child but was forced to give up his dream of becoming a florist. Giving him a newly grown Tooth Lily is what prompts his HeelFaceTurn, as someone who only knows about him on an intimate level would know how to grow one, and, as he points out, the Tooth Lily is such a delicate flower that very particular care must be taken to grow it. This is also part of makes him a {{Foil}}, or perhaps ''[[NotSoDifferent similar]]'' to Flower Kid, and he even tells them that they remind him of himself when he was younger.]]≤* FreudianExcuse: Habit's childhood didn't exactly give him a good frame of reference for what happiness was actually supposed to be. [[spoiler:His parents were a key factor in his descent into depression (and later, madness.) A younger Habit describes them as constantly sad in his diary, Habit's father in particular was physically abusive, and both parents pushed him into pursuing a medical career against his will - which turned out to be an utterly thankless line of work for him, even after a HopeSpot in which he ponders whether or not becoming a dentist will allow him to spread happiness. A teenage Habit also writes about a bully named [[ChekhovsGun Martha]], but compared to his home life, it's only mentioned in passing.]]≤* GreenEyedMonster: According to Kamal, at least, Habit is driven in part by envy towards Flower Kid for making the Habiticians genuinely happy, whereas he can only come up with temporary solutions or wildly unhealthy coping mechanisms. It becomes even more noticeable during [[spoiler:the climax,]] in which Dr. Habit can insist that he's not jealous [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial completely unprompted]].≤* HeelRealization: [[spoiler:He has one if the player chooses to give him the Tooth Lily or kiss him, which ends up jolting him back to reality - and by extension, the full weight of what he's been doing. He also seems to have one to a lesser degree in the bad ending, since he doesn't bother fighting back and refers to Flower Kid as "Flower Hero," implying he's fully aware that he's the bad guy, but felt that he had come too far to quit.]]≤* ICallItVera: During the game's introduction, Habit mentions someone named Martha assisting him in opening the Habitat - as it turns out, though, "Martha" is a machine in the carnival fashioned into the shape of a large, toothy grin, spewing an unidentified gas (likely [[spoiler:nitrous oxide]]) into the Habitat.≤* InsaneTrollLogic: [[spoiler: Smiles make people happy, so he needs the biggest smile ever to make everyone happy! Itís fine if he steals teeth to make his smile bigger, since people who donít smile arenít really using theirs, right?]]≤* IronicEcho: At the beginning of the game, he ends his introductory PSA with "Someday, you'll all smile for me," which hints at his more sinister nature. [[spoiler:And in the good ending, when saying goodbye to Flower Kid, he tells them "Make them smile. For me?" showing that once you strip away all the borderline insanity, Habit genuinely cares about making people happy for their own sake, even if he recognizes that attempting to gas 22 people with lethal levels of nitrous oxide to steal their teeth may not have been the best way of going about it.]] ≤* ItsAllAboutMe: The Habiticians are HIS to cheer up, and he doesnít take too kindly to Flower Kid doing his job for him. [[spoiler: This goes double when itís revealed that what he actually wants is to take the Habiticians' teeth so he can make his own smile bigger. He insists it's for the greater good, and seems to genuinely think people will never cheer up without his frankly ridiculous plan.]]≤* Letters2Numbers: He writes, types and speaks very much like someone sending a goofy text message. [[spoiler:Notably, he drops this quirk upon having his HeelRealization.]]≤* MadDoctor: [[spoiler:Dentist, more specifically.]]≤* MeanBoss: Almost nobody who's worked with him has anything good to say about the experience:≤** Tiff Webber has a record contract with him, but makes it very clear that she wants out since she's limited to performing only a few songs - all teeth-related, of course. The only thing still keeping her in the contract is her guilt over leaving what is obviously a very emotionally unstable man to his own devices.≤** Whatever he said to Wallus Breadbear prior to the events of the game, it was apparently humiliating enough to cause him to start living in a ''wall'' out of shame. Even now, the poor guy still seems deathly afraid of Habit - in one line of dialogue, he'll insist Habit is a bad boss before meekly asking the player not to tell him that he said that.≤** Kamal Bora claims to have been fired for his poor dental hygiene, but not before Habit chewed him out quite thoroughly for it - conveniently forgetting that he left Kamal without anything ''to'' clean his teeth after a nervous breakdown involving heavy rain, a rusting Martha, and stealing every inhabitant's mandated toothbrush to clean her. It's particularly bitter in this case, as it's implied that the two were rather close prior to the Martha incident, despite Habit's less-than-pleasant oddities. ≤* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Dr. Habit briefly shows off all his [[spoiler:stolen]] teeth, and [[spoiler:appears to have at least three rows of teeth in his mouth.]]≤* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Regardless of what ending you pursue, Habit will become significantly more lucid and subdued after [[spoiler:being confronted with either the punching glove, the kiss, or the tooth lily.]] His facial expressions are also significantly less exaggerated, showing that not only has Habit's charade been ineffectual at best and dangerous at worst, but that it's been utterly exhausting for him to keep up, too.≤* PostKissCatatonia: [[spoiler:He freezes up if the player kisses him during the climax. It's one of the two things that can shock him back to reality and help him realize his wrongdoings before letting Flower Kid go.]]≤* PsychopathicManchild: His writing style is peppered with spelling errors and emoticons, he communicates with the Habiticians through videos using a puppet of himself, the graffiti self-portraits on the walls of the Habitat resemble something that you would see in a child's sketchbook, all of the songs he's prepared for Tiff as a part of their record contract are nursery rhymes that he edited to be about teeth (and he cries every time she tries to break off their contract) and so on and so forth. It's implied during a few moments that he may be forcing some of the more childish aspects of his personality... [[spoiler:but the "psychopathic" part kicks into high gear when it's revealed he plans to steal all the Habiticians' teeth for himself, and judging by the SlasherSmile he gives Flower Kid during the climax, revealing multiple rows of teeth, he's been at it for a while.]]≤* SanitySlippage: Judging by [[spoiler:the crumpled up diary pages,]] Habit has never been the cornerstone of mental stability, but by the time the Habitat is up and running, he seems to have hit an all-time low. As the game progresses and you help more people, his mask of perpetual cheer begins to slip more and more, and his videos take on a more unnerving edge. His former assistant Kamal describes him as unhinged. Given that he watched Habit have a nervous breakdown and steal everyone's toothbrushes and toothpaste to clean "Martha" - a giant metal mouth with a toothy grin that had rusted in the rain - it's not surprising.≤* SissyVillain: Downplayed. He has a somewhat androgynous appearance (in the official artbook, he's jokingly described as being like Film/TheBabadook if he was featured in WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine), [[ManChild has a childish personality one usually wouldn't expect from a grown man]], and [[spoiler:[[RealMenWearPink has an interest in flowers]]. However, the latter is something he gave up on as he was robbed of his childhood dream of becoming a florist, thanks to a disapproving abusive father. In the good ending, Flower Kid giving him a Tooth Lily makes him remember how special it was to him, causing his HeelFaceTurn and rejuvenating his interest in flowers (as seen in the CreativeClosingCredits).]]≤* SlasherSmile: Just ''look'' at [[ it.]]≤* StepfordSmiler: He tries just a bit ''too'' hard to come off as cutesy and energetic, even when it becomes abundantly clear that he's feeling anything but. One comment he makes while talking to the player all but outright states he doesn't believe in helping people anywhere near as much as he pretends to - at least, not anymore.≤--> '''Dr. Habit:''' The Habiticians are lost causes. Let them frown their days away.≤* UsedToBeASweetKid: When he was a kid, Habit's desire to make people smile seemed to come from a place of genuine selflessness, since everyone in his life seemed downright miserable. [[spoiler:[[FromBadToWorse And then he starts writing about how unfair it is that unhappy people get to keep their smiles...]]]]≤[[/folder]]≤≤≤!Habiticians≤≤[[folder:As a whole]]≤----≤* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Their skin color ranges from blue, green, red, and even purple.≤* LongHairIsFeminine: Averted. Multiple male Habiticians also sport long hair, and very few seem to adhere to strictly masculine or feminine tropes otherwise.≤* SurrealSymbolicHeads: [[spoiler:If you don't cheer all of them up, the ones left in the habitat will have their heads replaced with objects and images related to their personalities.]]≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Nat Vancy]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Bana Valope'''≤[[quoteright:287:]] ≤The first character you meet, a rebellious 13 year-old girl and aspiring musician. She is the daughter of Trencil Varnnia and changed her surname because she wanted a cool stage name. ≤----≤* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Her skin is gray. Trevor thinks it's evidence of vampires. According to Nat, he's half-right.≤* BrattyTeenageDaughter: Practically the day she hit 13, according to Trencil.≤* DeadpanSnarker: Due to being a rebellious teenager.≤* {{Dhampyr}}: Implied. Her father Trencil is a vampire, but it isn't clear what exactly that makes Nat aside from her implying she qualifies as this in one bit of dialogue.≤* JustifiedTutorial: She's the first one to greet Flower Kid when they wake up in the Habitat. The tutorial is a combination of scribbly on-screen commands from Dr. Habit and genuine questions from Nat like "can you bring me that flower?"≤* TeensAreShort: She doesn't seem to have hit her growth spurt yet.≤* TheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: She really does love her dad, even if she denies it - in fact, hearing her confess so is what ultimately cheers Trencil up. In the end credits of the best ending they can be seen posing dramatically for one of Dallas's paintings together.≤* {{Tsundere}}: In general, but especially if you give her a kiss.≤* WhenSheSmiles: In a slightly meta sense - she's the first person Flower Kid cheers up, and therefore the first to give off those blue sparkles, which can surprise new players. (Her smile is quite cute, too.)≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Dallas Smuth]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Frankie Green'''≤[[quoteright:350:]] ≤A hippie artist who declares Mirphy Fotoparat his muse and tries to impress her with his paintings. ≤----≤* ItsAllAboutMe: He admits to seeing himself as a protagonist. That's why he expects Mirphy to date him after he gave her a painting. He does have a change of heart after the player's help, though.≤* CharacterDevelopment: Has one of the clearest arcs over the course of the game - he decides Mirphy is his muse and assumes she will love him if he paints the right thing, realizes he was thinking in an entitled and self-absorbed way, falls into a depression and questions if his work was any good in the first place, learns that several people around the Habitat like his work, and finally learns to live for himself and not to rely on others' approval. He even says, at the very end, that Flower Kid must be his real muse, because they're helped him grow so much as a person.≤* EveryoneHasStandards: Has a crush on Mirphy, but if you show him a photo of her butt after telling him that she's not interested, he rejects it on the basis of it being an invasion of her privacy.≤* LongPants: Appears to be wearing a pair of long johns with loose, rumpled feet.≤* TheMuse: Is looking for his, and has currently settled on Mirphy - one line from Wallus implies that she wasn't his first choice, either:≤--> '''Wallus:''' Hey, Dallas. Listen, you should really stop painting Questionette. I don't think she's into it. She's just being polite. ≤* NewAgeRetroHippie: His personal nickname for the player is even "Flower Child."≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Mirphy Fotoparat]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Grace Brewster'''≤[[quoteright:350:]] ≤A proud and exigent photographer who has the tendency of talking to herself when no one is around.≤----≤* CollectorOfTheStrange: More than anything, she wants... a photo of someone's butt. Any butt. It is the rarest possible thing to see in the Habitat, because...≤* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: ...all the other characters "turn towards you" no matter where you stand. Mirphy finds it creepy and annoying.≤* MeaningfulName: Fotoparat is the Czech word for camera.≤* NonStandardCharacterDesign: The only character model that actually turns away from you when you leave. This turns out to be a clue - she later requests that Flower Kid take a photo of someone's butt, but the only one you can actually see in the Habitat is hers.≤* NoodlePeople: Kind of looks like she's made of pipe cleaners.≤* RapunzelHair: It reaches at least her hips.≤* TalkingToThemself: Stand a certain distance away from Mirphy and you can eavesdrop on her muttering her opinions out loud. She also claims to have scheduled meetings with herself.≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Lulia Fame]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Samanthuel Louise Gillson'''≤[[quoteright:350:]] ≤A sad woman who hopes to become a model. She is found blocking the stairs to the terrace, weeping.≤----≤* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: A startling shade of red-orange, with teal hair and red lips.≤* DramaQueen: She even has a Brooding Zone!≤* LipstickLesbian: She's very feminine, and cries because she has "thrown her life away for a cute girl." Plus, she finds Jerafina attractive, and can be seen in the crowd of women swooning over Tiff in the end credits. ≤** Part of cheering up Tim Tam involves giving Lulia a tube of actual lipstick - though she claims she doesn't need it because her natural color is so strong.≤* ShipTease: With Jerafina - Lulia admits to finding her attractive, and if you give her a kiss from Jerafina, she exclaims that she'd "know those lips anywhere," and has to excuse herself, becoming incredibly giddy. [[ One of her trading cards]] even has them going on a date!≤* WhenSheSmiles: While it can be attributed to most of the characters, Lulia's cheery smile after spending so long weeping on the stairs is particularly stunning.≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Ronbo]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Gabe Lane'''≤[[quoteright:350:]] ≤A clown responsible for the carnival who has trouble moving on from his ex-girlfriend.≤----≤* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: One of his character models pre-cheering features a cigar. You can also give him a pack of cigarettes after he's been cheered up, but he claims he's trying to quit now.≤* {{Joisey}}: Speaks with this accent.≤* NonIronicClown: He doesn't want to be taken seriously, since it would be harder for him to actually get any clowning done.≤* OffscreenBreakup: He and Tiff have broken up right before Flower Kid arrives at the Habitat. He's mature enough to realize his failings and not try to get her back, but he still wants a photo to remember her by.≤* SadClown: Until you cheer him up, that is.≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Millie Coulro]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Yugo Limbo'''≤[[quoteright:350:]] ≤A bratty kid with a talent for golf. She is afraid of clowns and her main goal is to hit one with a golfball.≤----≤* BrattyHalfPint: And she knows it.≤* FieryRedhead: Angry, defensive, abrasive and LOUD.≤* KidsAreCruel: Her one goal is to hit Ronbo on the head with a golf ball in order to make him cry even more. ≤* MeaningfulName: Coulrophobia is the fear of clowns.≤* VagueAge: She refers to herself as "like 10," "like 8," and "like 5," at various points in the same conversation. If you give her a kiss, she yells that she's "like 6."≤* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: You don't actually have to follow through on her command to hit Ronbo in the head with a golf ball to progress in the game, but you get an achievement for doing it anyway.≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Trencil Varnnia]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Frankie Green'''≤[[quoteright:350:]] ≤A gloomy vampire who would rather be accompanied by flowers than other people. He is Nat's father and feels she has grown distant.≤----≤* FlowerMotifs: Applies to a lesser extent than Flower Kid and [[spoiler:Habit]], but he takes care of plants (and by extension, flowers) as a hobby. Part of his quest is growing a couple of flowers for him, and he will give you a pair of shears with a floral design as a reward. [[spoiler:If you do not cheer him up before the Big Event, [[SurrealSymbolicHeads his head will be replaced with a flower]].]]≤* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire: Despite being a vampire and a bit of a recluse, he's actually perfectly amicable and gets along fine with Flower Kid. Even if you out him as a vampire as part of cheering up Trevor, he will call out Flower Kid on prying into his business but still understands their curiosity.≤* GoodParents: Genuinely cares about his daughter Nat and feels bad about her suddenly becoming distant.≤* MissingReflection: He doesnít appear in the picture when the player takes a photo of him.≤* PunnyName: "Trencil Varnnia" sounds an awful lot like "Transylvania". ≤* PurpleProse: While it's typically not excessive, his speech tends to be on the flowery side. He even keeps his eloquent tone when criticizing or insulting someone.≤--> '''Trencil (when kissed)''': Oh, my. A single kiss, planted on my cheek. I truly cannot blame you. My graceful, demure disposition exudes intense beauty. Alas, fatherhood is a full time job. I will not be wooed by plant or animal. You must be careful, lest you fall under my uncontrollable spell. Protect yourself, dear flower-whisperer.≤* VegetarianVampire: He's a vampire, but finds the idea of drinking blood distasteful. ≤* WoodenStake: If you punch him, he scoffs, telling you to try a stake next time. ≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Trevor Garbo]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Gabe Lane'''≤[[quoteright:350:]] ≤A teenage conspiracy theorist and believes vampires are involved with the habitat. He also says he can turn into a werewolf named Sebastian.≤----≤* ConspiracyTheorist: He's obsessed with proving that Trencil is a vampire, and believes there's a coven of vampires steadily converting all the Habiticians. ≤* {{Chuunibyou}}: Brings this to mind whenever he talks about his supposed werewolf form.≤* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: Trencil is, in fact, a vampire. He's not working for Habit, though - he's just here because he's worried about his daughter.≤* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Considering that vampires exist in the world of ''Smile For Me,'' whether or not Trevor actually is a werewolf (and/or to what extent he's exaggerating his abilities if he is) is never made clear. His {{Chuunibyou}} tendencies tend to make people lean towards him being 100% human.≤* OneSidedRivalry: With Trencil. He thinks that Trencil is secretly converting all of the other Habiticians into vampires - Trencil, however, just thinks of him as a nuisance. It probably doesn't help that Trevor has a crush on Trencil's daughter Nat, if his Kiss dialogue is anything to go by. ≤* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: His "werewolf alter-ego" apparently has healing and electricity powers.≤* SelfProclaimedLoveInterest: Claims he's one to Nat in his kiss dialogue. Considering this is [[DeadpanSnarker Nat]] we're talking about, she doesn't seem to feel the same way:≤--> '''Trevor''': TH... THIS...must... be... from Nat! My Forbidden Love... ...two houses.. Both alike in dignity, you see...Nat and I are destined to be together...but alas...SOCIETY deems us enemies..

You can even win one for him, thus cheering him up.≤** [[ A trading card illustration]] also shows him crying TearsOfJoy at getting to hold a little white puffball of a dog - [[FunnyBackgroundEvent with Mirphy freaking out as several more gather around her in the background.]]≤* EmbarrassingFirstName: According to Wallus, his first name is actually ''Gilliam.'' Given his insistence on manliness, it makes sense that he'd try to cover it up.≤* LovableJock: Tries to deny this in favor of playing himself up as a JerkJock, but it eventually catches up to him.≤* RealMenWearPink: Slowly comes to terms with this with the help of Flower Kid.≤* StepfordSmiler: He was forced to smile as the bouncer for the lounge, and the security cameras were always on him. The first thing he asks the player to do is cover the camera so he can drop the fake smile.≤* ShipTease: With Randy. Not much in the game itself aside from Randy claiming that Gillis has an "interesting flavour," but [[ their trading card]] has Randy sitting on his lap, in a warmly lit room, while Gillis looks nervous, but rather pleased.

He tries to get you to buy a metal detector for an [[EleventyZillion impossible amount]] and even says OneBornEveryMinute, verbatim, but said metal detector is just a magnet attached to a stick. When showing his picture to Wallus, Wallus says he wants a refund because the flashlight Gerry sold him was a lightbulb on a stick.≤* FunetikAksent: It contains a lot of Z sounds, whatever it is.≤* FunnyAfro : His is compared to a broccoli in the game. ≤* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Seriously, we have no idea.≤* VagueAge: When shown his picture, Parsley estimates him to be somewhere between 5 and 40. ≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Parsley Botch]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Christian Flynn'''≤[[quoteright:350:]] ≤An extremely tired and almost starving businessman with conflicted feelings towards his father.≤----≤* TheAlcoholic: Not as much as, say, [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl Jerafina]], but the first place you can find him after making him happy is in the Habitat's lounge, and he's very clearly drunk.≤* ButtMonkey: Moreso than most of the cast, anyway. Putunia has taken to punching him for practice.≤* ExtremeOmnivore: Though not entirely by choice; while his father Jimothan considers himself a SupremeChef, all of his food is made out of largely non-edible garbage, but Parsley finds himself missing it anyway.≤* LikeFatherUnlikeSon: His father Jimothan is a proud, brash, and talkative bartender who holds manliness in very high regard, while Parsley himself is an awkward and easily stressed businessman who Jimothan describes as "soft."≤* NervousWreck: Was so anxious about seeing his father that he didn't eat for days. ≤* StraightGay: Not discussed in the game proper - the most we get is him insisting he has no interest in women (despite his father's efforts) and claiming that the kiss the player can give him tastes like "Martin" before clarifying that he meant "martinis." It's easy to brush this off as as another instance of his VerbalTic until you find [[ the trading card revealing that]] Martin is apparently ''real,'' albeit he only seems to exist as TheGhost so far.≤* VerbalTic: He mixes up words often - usually with a food-related substitute. At one point, he calls Flower Kid a "capable onion" before admitting even he doesn't know what he was trying to say.≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Tiff Webber]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Tessa Wells'''≤[[quoteright:350:]] ≤A talented singer working for Dr. Habit, she only sings songs he likes (that all involve teeth) and wants to break up the contract.≤----≤* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: One of the drawings in the credits has Mirphy, Lulia, and Jerafina in the crowd swooning over her.≤* LennonSpecs: She wears a pair of red, round sunglasses.≤* NiceGirl: She's generally polite and friendly, even when annoyed or exasperated, has sung for Flower Kid's birthday, wonders if Ronbo's doing okay even after they've broken up, and the only reason she hasn't cancelled her contract is because she feels bad for leaving Habit, since he breaks down crying every time she tries.≤* OneHundredPercentAdorationRating: Multiple characters comment on how much they like her singing.≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Jerafina Tabouli]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Jintana Cunningham'''≤[[quoteright:350:]] ≤A drunk ex-teacher hanging out at the Lounge, wants to go back to her "hot teacher" look and needs to find her glasses to do so.≤----≤* TheAlcoholic: Explained further under HardDrinkingPartyGirl below. For what it's worth, she drinks at least 40 drinks a day if her response to Jimothan's picture is anything to go by.≤* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: "That purple girl."≤* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: Never actually seen drinking, but she is really flirty and ditzy, and her dialogue is noticeably slurred. Lulia refers to her as "tipsy woman."≤* HotForTeacher: Isn't actually a teacher by the time the game's main story rolls around, but still invokes this trope because she thinks it's fun. ≤* HotTeacher: Ex-teacher, but still.≤* NoodlePeople: Compare the length of her arms with the length of her legs.≤* SexySpectacles: Part of cheering her up is going to get her glasses, which she says complements her HotTeacher look. For what it's worth, she looks pretty good, if not better, with them on.≤* ShipTease: Thinks Lulia is pretty, asks Flower Kid to tell her she said hello, and one of the game's trading cards depicts them on a date.≤* UnkemptBeauty: Well, she isn't exactly ''wrong'' about being a HotTeacher, but she has a scruffy way of getting dressed up, what with a low neckline on her dress and MessyHair. Not that this makes her any less attractive, though.≤* UnusualEuphemism: She invites Lulia to "Spaghetti Night" in a flirty manner, Lulia herself is unsure what she means by that. If Flower Kid kisses her, she offers them out for "spaghetti" too, again without any indication of what she means. If the Steam trading cards are anything to go by, she apparently just meant a regular date, but there would have been no way of knowing otherwise.≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Jimothan Botch]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Christian Flynn'''≤[[quoteright:350:]] ≤The bartender of the lounge, obsessed with manliness and pressures his son into finding a girlfriend and working out.≤----≤* BumblingDad: Parsley sees him as one, anyway. To Parsley's credit, most of his signature recipes involve actual - usually inedible - garbage.≤* LethalChef: His food looks fine - at least if you're mostly blind, and don't see colors - but it's mostly made of garbage. Parsley says it tastes awful, but he still misses it.≤* LikeFatherUnlikeSon: Jimothan is a proud, brash, and talkative bartender who holds manliness in very high regard, while his son Parsley is an awkward and easily stressed businessman who Jimothan describes as "soft." ≤* TheMatchmaker: Tries to be one for his son Parsley, much to the latter's chagrin.≤* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Fancies himself the manly man to his son Parsley's sensitive guy. He's trying to get Parsley to break out of this, to no avail.≤* TheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: When shown Parsley's photo, he admits that "he ain't much, but he's all I got," before coughing and presumably trying to think of something less sappy.≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Randy Hapukurk]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Christian Flynn'''≤[[quoteright:350:]] ≤An poet and pickle enthusiast with a great sense of smell.≤----≤* MeaningfulName: Hapukurk is the Estonian word for "pickle".≤* SignatureScent: Pickles.≤* ShipTease: With Gillis - he claims that Gillis smells good, and a [[ Steam trading card featuring the two of them]] has Randy in his ''lap'' while Gillis looks nervous, but pleased.≤* TheNoseKnows: He is obsessed with smells, and can smell people through pictures.≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Tim Tam]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Yugo Limbo'''≤[[quoteright:326:]] ≤A very strange, very chaotic child who constantly steals from the other Habiticians, claiming it's for a "revolution."≤----≤* AmbiguousGender: Is referred to with they/them pronouns, implying they may be nonbinary.≤* AmbiguouslyEvil: If you show a photo of them to Putunia, she claims that they "fight for evil," but then again, Putunia is a very idealistic young girl whose ultimate goal in life is to be a superhero.≤* CreepyChild: Blank eyes, stoic expression, rarely says anything more than they need to, and threatens to steal your kidneys if you punch them. ≤* ForTheLulz: Their quests include punching 20 people with a boxing glove and a staring contest, among other things, and they call Flower Kid a patsy upon being made happy, implying that they only wanted to have some fun.≤* StickyFingers: Steals regularly from the other Habiticians, who can't really piece together why - the fact that you get rid of two of the items they give you by giving them to other Habiticians only serves to add to the confusion.≤* TerseTalker: Rarely says more than one or two words at a time, and their requests to Flower Kid are more akin to orders. ≤* ThereCanOnlyBeOne: Tim Tam doesn't seem to like other purple-skinned characters, if their reactions to Marv and Jerafina's photos are anything to go by.≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Borbra Luddington]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Gabe Lane'''≤[[quoteright:350:]] ≤A very large woman with a love for bird watching, asks for help getting a "Y'owl" to have as a pet.≤----≤* AbhorrentAdmirer: A downplayed variant for Ronbo. She insists he's totally into her, while he... doesn't quite know what to make of her. Her giving him a bouquet of chicken's feet only served to confuse him further.≤* AnimalMotifs: Birds≤* BigFun: Is one of the biggest and broadest characters in the game, and one of the Habiticians more often used for comic relief. She herself claims she's roughly 10 feet tall.≤* CuteOwl: While it can look pretty creepy when you catch it at night, her pet owl, Rice Pilaf, is pretty adorable, especially when it's perched on her hand.≤* PunnyName: Her name is a portmanteau of "borb" (a corruption of "bird"), and "Barbra."≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Questionette]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Samanthuel Louise Gillson'''≤[[quoteright:350:]] ≤An enigmatic foreigner whose dialogue can only be understood with a decoder. ≤----≤* {{Emoticon}}: Often uses them.≤* FunnyForeigner: Suspected to be French, and her main gimmick is that she's barely intelligible without the Quik Translate. ≤* OffscreenBreakup: With Wallus, thanks to their wildly different lifestyles and him losing the translator that made it possible to understand her to begin with. Whoops.≤* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade D; her socks a little below her knees.≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Marv Truncler]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Yugo Limbo'''≤[[quoteright:350:]] ≤An old fisherman standing on the small pond at the courtyard.≤----≤* RamblingOldManMonologue: If given a kiss, Marv will list all of the fish that can be caught using kisses... and the list goes on forever. Literally. ≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Kamal Bora]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Frankie Green'''≤[[quoteright:350:]] ≤The very nervous former assistant of Dr. Habit. He helps in the confrontation with Habit after you brush his teeth.≤----≤* AmbiguousSituation: How exactly he stopped being Dr. Habit's assistant isn't clear - if you shake your head "no" when Wallus asks you for a favor (while under the impression he's speaking to Kamal) he'll claim that he and Kamal quit together, but if you refuse Kamal's offer to tell you about the incident with Martha, he himself will say that Habit fired him. His feelings toward Dr. Habit himself are also hard to make sense of, since he seems to cycle between scorn, pity, and some semblance of genuine affection all within the same conversation (i.e. calling him a "big softie" only a few lines after saying he's unhinged.) Considering he was there for at least the last year or so of Dr. Habit's downward spiral, this is probably intentional.≤* DeadpanSnarker: Not often, but his humor can get pretty dry when talking about any of the other Habiticians.≤--> '''Kamal (when shown Tim Tam's photo):''' I can assure you, little pal, that if you ever wake up with one less tooth than normal... You can probably trace it back to this one.≤* EveryoneHasStandards: He's not willing to deal with Dr. Habit face to face any time soon (nor is it clear just how much he knew about Habit's true plans) but he doesn't feel right about ignoring the issue completely, given that it's ''very'' likely that Habit could harm others or himself with how much his SanitySlippage has progressed. Despite his misgivings about the doctor, Kamal isn't particularly keen on either of those things happening, so he tries to appeal to Flower Kid's reputation as an altruistic do-gooder to get them to snap Habit out of it without anyone getting hurt. [[spoiler:It's possible to disregard this, as one of the game's endings involves you pushing Dr. Habit off of the balcony, where he falls to his death.]] ≤* MeaningfulName: Kamal means "lotus" in Hindi - yet another callback to the game's running theme of flowers. ≤* MediumAwareness: Implied. In the bad ending, Kamal will muse about whether or not he and/or Flower Kid could have handled things differently, or if life had an "undo button." In the neutral ending, he outright says "maybe next time's the charm," before [[VerbalBackspace immediately taking it back and wondering what he was even talking about.]]≤* NervousWreck: His introduction? An appearance in one of Dr. Habit's morning announcements, where he appears on-screen just as Dr. Habit describes the terrace as as a place where people "stand up high and think about not existing." And indeed, one of his most frequently used sprites has him in a TroubledFetalPosition. A layer of grime on his teeth makes it so that he's hardly able to focus until you manage to brush it off.≤* RapidFireYes: This happens once you actually brush his teeth... only for him to apologize for making things weird.≤* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Stopped being Dr. Habit's assistant after witnessing him have a nervous breakdown involving stealing everyone's dental supplies to clean "Martha" (who is, again, a giant gas-spewing piece of machinery) after it rusted in the rain, and then mocked Kamal for not keeping his teeth clean despite the fact that he had no way of doing so. It's unclear if he quit voluntarily or was fired, or if this was just the last straw in a long line of off-the-wall incidents, but the bottom line is that he's not willing to work for the guy again any time soon.≤* SecretKeeper: Becomes this to Flower Kid in [[spoiler:the bad ending, promising that he won't tell anyone that they murdered Habit.]]≤* SeriousBusiness: Why did he stop being Dr. Habit's assistant to begin with? Because Habit made fun of his teeth. Granted it was preceded by Kamal bearing witness to an inconsolable Dr. Habit having a nervous breakdown, and it's implied that it was not even close to the only instance of Kamal being caught up in Dr. Habit's strange and oftentimes irrational behavior, but compared to his coworkers' reasons for leaving or being dissatisfied with their jobs, it comes across as strikingly petty.≤* SmallRoleBigImpact: Is introduced fairly late into the game, but is instrumental in helping the player access Dr. Habit's office once all necessary tasks are completed, thus triggering the confrontation with Habit. [[spoiler:Oddly enough, however, he won't be waiting for you if you get the good ending.]]≤* WeUsedToBeFriends: It's implied that prior to the incident with Martha, Habit and Kamal were on surprisingly good terms - even when Kamal makes it clear that he's had enough of Habit for a good while, he seems confident that Habit still has a soft spot and can be reasoned with on some level, and in turn, [[ it's revealed in Habit's final PSA]] that he still thinks of Kamal as a friend. There's also [[HoYay the trading card illustration]] mentioned under the entry for AmbiguouslyGay in Dr. Habit's character sheet.≤* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Disappears after [[spoiler:you achieve the good ending.]] It's especially odd considering he was the most invested in making sure both Flower Kid and Dr. Habit turned out alright.≤[[/folder]]≤≤[[folder:Wallus Breadbear]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Gabe Lane'''≤The ex-janitor of the Habitat. He's been living in the walls of the boiler room ever since Dr. Habit gave him a particularly nasty dose of public humiliation, and seems to know all the Habiticians.≤----≤* MeaningfulName: Wall-us.≤* MisterExposition: Bring him a photo of any of the other Habiticians, and he'll be able to tell you something about their personality, interests, or involvement in one of the many NoodleIncidents that have taken place at the Habitat since its opening (although he'll think he's talking to them.)≤* HeterosexualLifePartners: He really misses Kamal - and for what it's worth, Kamal does warn the player to be nice to Wallus, implying he's familiar with the latter's reclusive nature.≤* OffscreenBreakup: Used to be in a relationship with Questionette, but broke up with her due to their vastly different lifestyles... and the fact that he lost the Quik Translate and couldn't understand her without it.≤* ShrinkingViolet: Is ''very'' shy and withdrawn, to the point where not even Kamal knows where exactly he's gone after Habit lashed out at him.≤* TheShutIn: He's been living in the walls of the boiler room for who knows how long - however much time has passed, it's enough for him to have information on just about every other Habitician. ≤* TheVoice: Is never seen on-screen, to the point where once the player finally manages to get a photo of him using the camera's flash feature, only one of his eyes shows up.≤[[/folder]]≤≤!Other≤≤[[folder:Cowboy Bed]]≤!!!'''Voiced by: Gabe Lane'''≤A sapient talking bed who grows rather attached to Flower Kid as the game goes on.≤----≤* AnimateInanimateObject: He's a bed that talks to the player, and invites them to sleep on him.≤* {{Cowboy}}: Evokes the idea of one, anyway.

They're odd, for sure, but as far as the Habitat's machinery goes, they're among the most functional, and their "father," Dr. Habit, isn't exactly the sanest man around anyway.≤* ArtisticLicenseEngineering: Appear to be almost fully functional AIs despite being about 95% scrap paper, which only serves to add to the strangeness of the Habitat at large.≤* StrangeSyntaxSpeaker: Similar to her creator, the Fortune Teller Carla's dialogue is written to sound more akin to a text message than actual speech.≤[[/folder]]≤----


How well does it match the trope?
