     Miserable Males, District 1 - 6 

Osso Torya:

"I also wouldn't be in the Games if it were not for my parents. I find no particular joy in the idea of killing, but my parents want to add an extra bit of fame to the name Torya. I suppose I'm somewhat of a pawn, if one chooses to look at it that way. I don't mind. I have to do something with my life, and constant luxury is really quite boring."

  • 0% Approval Rating: Even his own Career pack (with the exception of Magya) hates him.
  • Adaptational Badass: The Austria in Hetalia may have been trained to be a fighter, but he eventually devolves into the pampered prince he is today. But in Miserable, although he's still pampered, he definitely knows how to use a sword.
  • Anti-Villain: Type I. Still a villain in every sense of the word, but his relationship with Magya gives him a far more human side, he's much less ruthless than some of the series' other villains, and his eventually realization and acceptance that he will most likely die makes him sympathetic. .
00 * Arch-Enemy: To Ilber.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He's never speechless for a comeback, whenever Ilber tries to diss him.
  • Defrosting Ice King: Gradually lets more and more of his soft side show when he's with Magya.
  • Face Death with Dignity: After his arm is broken, he faces the likelihood of his death with solemn acceptance.
  • Father, I Don't Want to Fight: Subverted. He "finds no particular joy in the idea of killing," but puts up little resistance when his family pressures into volunteering to preserve their prestige.
  • Freudian Excuse: his sole reason for volunteering was family pressure.
  • Lonely at the Top: Is hated or feared by everyone in the pack, with the exception of Magya.
  • Love Is a Weakness: Tells Magya right at the beginning that there is absolutely no room for romance in the Games. This doesn't stop the Ship Tease, of course.
  • Pet the Dog: When he doesn't kill Feli, when he saves her from the fish mutt (though it's arguable how much of this was out of goodness and how much was out of gaining Sheen's loyalty), and many of his moments with Magya.
  • Villain Decay: He loses a lot of his threat once Ilber nearly kills him and breaks his arm.
  • Villainous Valor: Fights bravely against Sui and Norge until the end, even managing to hurl a cleaver at the latter's back.

Sheen Sehre:

Snuff Eitchpy:

"I'm only 12 — and I've only been that for about a week — and I'm not that strong or anything. I kind of... I don't have good odds. I'll try to get out and everything, but I'm really not that optimistic about this."

Antonio Spey:

Shiran Kirkland:

Aurth Unikin:

     Miserable Males, District 7 - 12 

Ilber Schmidt:

Norge Oslo:

Ise Javik:

Den Copen:

  • Adaptational Villainy
  • Asshole Victim: Tina may be driven to insanity from the guilt of his death, but it's unlikely the readers feel the same way. He was (probably) about to kill her and Sui, after all.
  • An Axe to Grind: Wanted one of these from the bloodbath, but had to settle for a cleaver.
  • Affably Evil: Remains eerily good-natured, even when ordering Sui and Tina to look for victims or advancing slowly on them with a cleaver.
  • Blood Knight: Though never actually reaching this level, he seemed to have tendencies towards it, and might have gone all the way if he hadn't been killed early by Tina.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Easygoing, fun-loving, and completely eager to fight.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: When he goes up against Tina.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Not that he's evil, but he specifically says that even though he's willing to kill the competition, he won't sink so low as to torture them. Nor will he force Sui and Tina to kill others, at least "not yet."
  • Jerkass: What he ultimately reveals himself to be.
  • Killed Off for Real
  • Nice Guy: Seems like this at first.
  • Ominous Walk: When approaching Sui and Tina after they leave his alliance.
  • Slashed Throat: Dies this way.
  • Pet the Dog: See Even Evil has Standards.
  • Power Trio / Two Girls and a Guy: With Sui and Tina.
  • Would Hit a Girl: was almost certainly about to kill Sui and Tina before Tina kills him.

Seborga Costa:

Korea Im:


     Miserable Females, District 1 - 6 

Livna Wickham:

"Did I ever mention I have the memory of an old-man goldfish?"

Magya Garrison:

"Not only have people been tortured, they've starved and burned and just withered away, so slowly... I want to save at least one Games from so much of that."

Feli Vargas:

Journs Skyop:

"Blood has such a beautiful colour, you know? And the shining, crimson textures on mutilated flesh are so much more interesting than bland, rough skin."

Wy Micra:

Bell Gique:

     Miserable Females, District 7 - 12 

Saki Beebul:

"Ha! You guys can't kill me if you can't even catch me!"

Paliss Crai:

Tina Sinki:

Plutonia Agnelli:

Sui Holmes:

  • Action Girl: Towards the end.
  • And This Is for...: In her final battle, she tries to justify her killing of Careers by assuming that one of them killed Tina and fighting to avenge her. She ends up taking down Osso, who wasn't guilty of Tina's death, and being killed by Magya, who was.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: Briefly, to Tina, until she decides that she can't bear the strain and abandons her.
  • 'Determinator'
  • Dirty Business: Her thoughts on abandoning Tina. She feels she has to do it, but that doesn't stop her from being consumed by guilt for nearly the rest of the fic.
  • Emotionless Girl: Rarely displays open emotion, even when racked with guilt over abandoning Tina. It's only through her inner monologue that we realize how she feels.
  • Foreshadowing: Her first impression of Den is that he's not trustworthy. Tina really should have listened to her.
  • Gender Flip
  • Kick the Dog: highly YMMV, but one could see her abandonment of a mentally-scarred Tina as this.
  • Killed Off for Real
  • Merciful Minion: Den sends her out to find tributes to kill, but she can't bring herself to report the young and obviously terrified Shiran and Plutonia to him.
  • Plucky Girl: Never gives in, despite all the guilt that gets heaped on her after abandoning Tina. She even goes out fighting a Career.
  • Power Trio / Two Girls and a Guy: With Tina and Den.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: She and Tina flee Den's alliance when he gets a little too insistent on killing. Unfortunately, it only makes things worse.
  • Shoot the Dog: Depending on how necessary you see it as, the aforementioned Kick the Dog could alternatively be this.
  • Slashed Throat: Dies this way.
  • The Unintelligible: Tina has to translate her mumbling for Den.

Owella Fehr:

"The capitol... It's just too strong for one little girl like me to take on. I just have to... have to sit back... have to stay and sit and watch... Just like always..."
