Characters / Bliss Stage: Love Is Your Weapon

Go To

    Joshua Castellano Preston 
  • Ace Pilot: A mix of Steamroller and Bushwhacker on most paths. He rolls over your blind spots, especially when he manifests Anna Lin as the Sun-Tzu Tactical Matrix.
  • Deadpan Snarker: this is his general response to adversity, especially on Practical paths.
  • Expy: Sort of; it depends on the path. He's based on Shinji on Sensitive paths, Simon on Idealist paths, and Setsuna on Practical paths.
  • Hot-Blooded: On Idealistic paths.
  • Military Brat: Considering that the Colonel is A Father to His Men - literally in his case...
  • Momma's Boy: which helps to explain his submissive tendencies.
  • Race Lift: Joshua Preston from the Bliss Stage Canon main rules was of unspecified race. Josh Castellano Preston specifies it as Irish and Colombian.
  • Translation Convention: Everything Joshua understands is 'printed' in English, but the voice actors will actually speak it in the language it's intended to be. Joshua knows Spanish at the start of the game and picks up some other languages.
  • Uke: For all his bluster, he's pretty goddamn submissive in relationships to begin with. And then you just had to go on the Derek Smith path...
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Averted on the paths where he actually talks with Colonel James Paul Preston, but on the others, his Shinji is showing.

    Anna Lin 

     Meredith Odetta Baker 

    Keenan Caine 

    Sara Smith 
"Josh? It's flattering, but don't do that in front of Hurf Durk again - pretending I don't know what it means bothers me."

    Gabriel Veramor Winter 
Josh: "Sometimes you just can't see the trees for the forest, Gabby."
Gabriel: "I would say that's accurate, yes."

     Laura "Mulan" Porter 
Joshua: Do you flirt with all the guys you meet?
Mulan: Well, not just the guys...

     Derek Smith
