  • Big Good: He tríes his best to look out for the children. Even going so far as to make a Deal with the Devil.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": His real name is David, but the kids call him Teacher. Justified Trope as, at one point, he says that he hates his real name.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Stabs himself with the final key to allow the children to return to the real world. Subverted, as the novel reveals he survived, but he's trapped in the other world.
  • It's All My Fault: He blames himself for Fiona sacrificing herself in the past to save him from the other world.
    • He does it again at the end of the novel when he finds out that Allen sacrificed himself to release him from the dream.
  • Meaningful Name: His real name. It's David, which a cutscene mentions means 'Beloved'. Teacher felt that in spite of giving love to everyone he knew, no-one loved him in return.
