Characters / Chains Of Reality Mentor Trio

Go To

The trio that serve as the mentors that train the sisters, as well as the main trio, to prepare for the fight against the progenitors: Lori Loud, Leni Loud, and Carol Pingrey.

     In general 
  • All-Powerful Bystander: Lori and Leni. They're not necessarily as strong as, say, Lincoln when in his divine form, but they're still strong enough to be able to deal with the antagonists without being immediately beaten senseless, and yet, they remain at the sidelines. Lori and Leni at least have the excuse that their prototype counterparts won't allow them to interfere.
    • Averted with Carol, who does get involved to an extent, but her stamina issues make it hard for her to stay in the fray for long.
  • Big Sister Mentor: Lori and Leni fit this, as the rest of the siblings, except maybe Lincoln, are technically younger than them. Carol's... A bit more complicated...
  • The Mentor: They all serve as the mentors for the sisters and the main trio, though Lori and Leni's roles are rather short-lived before Carol replaces them.
  • Nice Mean And Inbetween: Leni, who's patient and calm with her siblings, Lori, who, while not outright malicious, is very stern and lacks patient, and Carol, who's an even mix of the two.

     Lori Loud 
The oldest of the Loud sisters. She's the more headstrong of the duo between her and Leni. She's under the servitude of Proto-Leni, at least in the original fic.
  • Bittersweet 17: She's probably older than that, but like in canon, her body is supposed to be around 17, and she and Leni are somehow bounded to their counterparts, preventing them from entering the fight and dealing with the main guys themselves. Yeah, It's pretty bittersweet.
  • Cruel to Be Kind: A little moment between her and Luna involves Luna hitting her, which does nothing, then returning the punch, knocking out a teeth from her. While this is seen as a bad thing by the siblings, it did make it clear that at that current point in time, the sisters weren't capable of fighting back against the progenitors.
  • Hologram: She can create these from her birthmark, which is located on her forehead.
  • Mrs. Exposition: She's the one to explain most stuff related to the original reality to her siblings.
  • Nervous Wreck: When not being a stern teacher figure, she tends to become nervous as soon as things seem to go beyond her control.
  • No-Sell: Luna punches her with all she's got during the climax of Proto-Lola's arc. Lori does act like it did something, but she quickly cuts the act before deliving an even harder punch at Luna, knocking out one of her teeth.
  • Shock and Awe: As a member of the Lori caste, this is a given, and seeing how she's the successor of the previous matriarch to boot, she's likely stronger than the average member of said caste.

     Leni Loud 
The second oldest Loud sibling. She's calmer and kinder in the duo between her and Lori. She's under the servitude of Proto-Lori, at least in the original fic.
  • The Confidant: Seems to work as one for Lori, even telling her she can tell her what's wrong when she notices Lori's looking nervous like usual. Considering the nature of the information the two know, there really isn't anybody else to talk to.
  • The Dreaded: At least to Leia, who outright calls her a psycho before she and Proto-Lola's Bun-Bun run away.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: It's Leni, what did you expect?
  • Improvised Weapon: Uses a tree as a club in order to smack both Leia and Proto-Lola's Bun-Bun away from Carol.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: She has a fairly slender build, but being part of the Leni caste, she possesses their characteristic super strength.
  • Power Limiter: Her earrings count as this, since they serve as the key to unlock her "Velvet" form.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: An odd case in that it's based on what form she's in at the moment. On her base form, Leni is as sweet and kind, if a little bit ditzy, as she is in canon. However, once her earrings come off, and assumes her "Velvet" form, she becomes much more aggressive and impatient, kinda like Lori.
  • Super Mode: Notable in that she's the only Loud sister to have a confirmed super mode besides the angel form. By taking off her earrings, she
  • Super Strength: Outright states she, and by extension her caste, has this, which she demonstrates with good use when she lifts and uses a tree as a club.
  • Textile Work Is Feminine: She's introduced in the story knitting something.

     Carol Pingrey 
A classmate of Lori who winds up becoming the sisters and trio's mentor after Lori and Leni decide she would be a better fit than them. She's also Lori and Leni's daughter.
  • Action Girl: Unlike her fellow mentors, she tends to join the battlefield whenever she can. However, her stamina issues make it difficult for her to deal with everything on her own.
  • Beauty Is Good: She's considered beautiful in-universe, and she's one of the good guys.
  • Cast From Stamina: Her portal powers work like this; If she uses them too often, her stamina will quickly drain, leaving her exhausted and open to attack.
  • Curb Stomp Cushion: When Lucy summoned Proto-Lucy and the latter was messing with the former, Carol manages to cut her in half before she's incapacitated.
    • Later, during the Proto-Lana arc, she manages to put up a decent fight against Proto-Lana herself, even scoring a few hits before her Savinoken runs out. It didn't do anything but annoy Proto-Lana, sure, but still, points for trying.
  • Hybrid Power: She's referred to as a "Cross-Caste" in the Proto-Lola Arc, which probably explains how she's able to stand toe-to-toe with both Lori and Leni at the same time, as well as her ability to control portals.
  • Laser Blade: Forms a pair of these during her fight with Lori and Leni in the introduction arc in the reboot.
  • Odd Friendship: With Lana, the Loud sister that she seems to get along with the most. The two of them are fairly close.
  • Thinking Up Portals: For some reason, she can create portals at will, although doing this too much tires her out.
