     Main Characters 

Corrin

The eponymous character and the current King of Valla. Currently lives in a fort in the Astral Realms with his servants, Azura and Elise.

  • All-Loving Hero: With the sole exception of Garon, Corrin has this philosophy. This is what drives him to save Flora's life despite her hating him when she starts out as a maid at the Northern Fortress.
    Corrin: "I… I don't remember who said taught me this… but I once heard that an enemy is… a friend who just doesn't know it yet."
  • Adorkable: Despite his being The Chessmaster, he's still rather dorky like his canonical counterpart. His speech at the end of the second chapter and his joke at the start of the eighth are good examples.
  • Big Brother Mentor: Has this relationship with Elise.
  • Casual Kink: He likes maid outfits, apparently. Fitting, considering who he has the most Ship Tease with.
  • The Chessmaster: Is absolutely expert at planning. He manages to out-play even trained assassins as the leader of the Antic Order.
  • Contrasting Sequel Main Character: Is this to the other Reactsverse protagonists. Fanfic doesn't faze him, pranks barely mess with him and he is perfectly capable of countering schemes by himself. In fact, HE is responsible for most of said pranks.
  • Determinator: Both in his attempts to plan to make sure that Flora gets with Jakob, and his general nature, including plowing through a blizzard as a young teen, trying to save Flora.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: With Flora; he saved her life by trudging through a blizzard, earning her respect in the process.
  • The Gadfly: He may be a Nice Guy, but there's no doubt that he does love to mess with people.
  • Genre Savvy: Manages to avoid the pitfalls that catch other protagonists and other Antic Order members in Reactsverse fics. For instance, he uses the personalities of his targets against them to get them to do what he wants instead of using embarrassment and shame to do it for him, as seen in Beruka and Jakob's cases.
  • Guile Hero: Uses his wits and smarts to pair people together.
    • When he and Flora are trapped inside a room rapidly filling with aphrodisiacs, Corrin manages to, within the space of moments, formulate a plan to escape the room before it takes effect.
  • In-Series Nickname: One from Silas: Partner. Jakob insists on calling him 'Lord Corrin' even when Felicia and Flora do not.
  • The Matchmaker: Wants to be this to Flora and Jakob. So far, has actually succeeded in the case of Benny and Beruka.
  • Nice Guy: Despite his mischievous nature, Corrin is still as nice as his canonical counterpart, watching out for his True Companions. His motivation for leading the Antic Order is simply because it would make Flora happy if she were to finally end up with Jakob, for one.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Azura, although there are hints it's more than that.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: A genderflipped version with Corrin as the Energetic Guy and Azura or Flora as the Savvy Girl.
  • Sheltered Aristocrat: Subverted: Corrin lived in the Outrealms — in the real world, it's implied — for several months specifically to avert this. When he comes back, he's far more Genre Savvy and generally street-smart. It's played straight in the stories that take place during or before the events of the game.
  • Ship Tease: With Azura and Flora. He openly flirts with Azura and shows no aversion to the idea of a relationship between them, although their current relationship seems platonic.
    • As for Flora, he teases her about being interested in her, and the whole plot of the fanfic is based around his schemes to make her happy and cheer her up. This gets even more amplified during the Festival two-parter, considering that the plot of that two-parter is almost literally a date between him and Flora.
    • Even more so now that we find out that Corrin's always been like that for Flora, to the extent that he went through a blizzard to save her.
  • Shipper on Deck: For Flora and Jakob, and eventually everyone he can find.
  • The Strategist: Is no slow hand at planning. Especially when it comes to leading the Antic Order.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: A whiff of this with Flora after the Festival two-parter, after the two share an emotional night together at the eponymous festival.
  • Uptown Girl: Is this to Flora, which is part of the reason he refuses to accept she might have feelings for him.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Azura, who she always teases and makes fun of. However, they're Platonic Life-Partners who will always stick by each other.
  • Walking Spoiler: It's hard to mention Corrin's characterisation after the first chapter without mentioning his being the leader of the Antic Order in the Fates universe.
  • Worthy Opponent: Saizou is this to Corrin, as the former out-gambits Corrin by replacing Jakob's diary with a blank (and Corrin only gets away by out-gambitting him in turn).
  • Xanatos Speed Chess: Corrin plays this to escape Saizou's trap and retrieve Jakob's diary, only to lose the game when he finds that Saizou changed the diary for a blank instead.

Azura

  • Brutal Honesty: Genuinely believes that being bluntly honest is the best policy rather than sugarcoating the truth. She certainly doesn't hold back against Corrin, either.
  • The Confidant: Azura acts as this to Corrin, being both a secret-keeper and an advice-giver to him. She also ends up as this to Flora after she helps her build her confidence to ask out Jakob.
  • Cool Big Sis: Elise certainly seems to think so.
  • Contrasting Sequel Main Character: Is this to the other Reactsverse deuteragonists. Unlike Yang and Ruby, Robin, or Madoka, she's rather calm, sassy at times, and very much hard to faze, bar one moment in the first chapter where she was caught off-guard. And unlike all of them bar Yang, she's privy to the Antic Order, being in it herself.
  • Covert Pervert: Imagines kissing Corrin for fun. She thinks he's a bad kisser.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Sasses out absolutely everyone. Corrin is capable of keeping up with her with his jokes, but nobody else manages to.
  • Dude Magnet: Mentions having many suitors during her stay in Hoshido... all of whom she turns down.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Is relatively normal during the first chapter of the story, before becoming the Deadpan Snarker we all know and love.
  • The Gadfly: Is quite nice, but not averse to trolling and messing around with Corrin and the rest of the house. She's also completely aware of her status as this:
    Azura: (referring to being split in two): “If you did, you couldn’t handle me, dear.”
  • Genre Savvy: Knows exactly what kind of fic she's in and constantly snarks at the usual tropes. The only times she's Wrong Genre Savvy is when Corrin deliberately screws with it by either succeeding or doing something different where others in the Reactsverse wouldn't.
  • Innocent Cohabitation: She lives in Corrin's castle. Nobody sees anything wrong with this, either, though people, In-Universe and out, seem to think it's less than innocent.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Subverted; Azura is fully aware of her insensitiveness, but tries to limit it to her snark and Brutal Honesty.
  • Naked People Are Funny: Is portrayed as naked a few times during the fic, mostly for comedic effect. Corrin doesn't seem to particularly care when she is.
  • Nice Girl: Despite her sass and bluntness, is just as nice as Corrin is. She also joins the Order partially to help him pair up Flora and Jakob.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: Seems to be this with Corrin for now, although there are hints this is more than platonic.
  • Ship Tease: Admits to finding Corrin handsome and teases him about liking 'mysterious blue-haired women'. Then there's the fact that she's living with him and the fact that neither of them particularly seem averse to the idea....
    • Zig-Zagged: Azura herself has admitted that she has no feelings for Corrin in that sense, even if she is Platonic Life-Partners with him. She certainly doesn't seem jealous when she finds out Corrin spent the festival with Flora, either.
  • The Tease: Much to Corrin's amusement and Kaze's exasperation.
  • Tritagonist: Although her character arc is less important than Corrin or Flora's, she has massive influence on how both of their arcs play out due to her status as True Companions to both of them.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Corrin, who she always teases and makes fun of. However, they're Platonic Life-Partners who will always stick by each other.

Flora

  • Apologises a Lot: Due to the below self-deprecation. It's revealed that she began acting like this after Corrin saved her life from falling down a ravine and then a blizzard.
  • Beautiful Dreamer: Corrin thinks this, at least, when he catches her sleeping on his shoulder.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Her motivation to help Corrin out is basically to repay the times Corrin's had her back.
  • Broken Bird: Her tragic past and downcast nature is partially why Corrin wants to make her happy by pairing her up with Jakob.
  • Covert Pervert: Is apparently a fan of romance novels, enough for Corrin to buy her some as a gift.
    • When both are under the effect of aphrodisiacs, it's Flora who almost initiates the act, not Corrin.
  • Deuteragonist: Her and Corrin's character arcs have been the main focus of the story thus far.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: With Corrin. Surviving a blizzard with him, having her life saved and saving his life resulted in her gaining respect for him.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Just as in canon, albeit downplayed. However, Flora's jealousy towards Corrin's friends (and Corrin himself) stem from her fears that that they don't find her interesting at all.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Downplayed from canon, but she still has self-esteem issues. For one, despite Corrin constantly reminding her he's her friend, she can't comprehend why he'd go to any length to help her out or why Corrin would ever think of her as a friend.
    • We find out why she thinks this, or at least one reason: Corrin saved her life when she tried to run away, and nearly died doing so. Flora does — and is implied to still do — feel guilty about nearly getting him killed and is genuinely confused as to why Corrin calls her his friend afterwards.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: One of her issues is that she's afraid of losing the friends she has because she has none of the qualities that make them interesting friends.
  • I Owe You My Life: Implied to be part of why she's Corrin's friend; Corrin saved her life back when she started as a maid by trudging through a snowstorm for her, nearly dying himself in the process.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Flora when she first was imprisoned in the Northern Fortress was temperamental, rebellious, and harsh, even yelling in Corrin's face. When Corrin nearly dies saving her life, however, Flora immediately tries to save his despite knowing she might die trying, and this trope is dropped afterwards. Averted in the rest of the story.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Flora's closet only consists of maid costumes, a swimsuit, and a yukata given to her by Corrin. It's revealed in one chapter that the reason for this is because Garon's men burned her old outfits.
  • Not So Above It All: Gets carried into Corrin's rush around town during the second half of the Festival two-parter and even tries to troll him the same way Azura does.
  • Not So Stoic: Despite her calm exterior, Corrin manages to get several rises out of her and she acts like a lovestruck teenager when Jakob's around.
    • Similarly, she's also disappointed and appropriately squicked out by the antics of an alternate Corrin and Felicia in one particular story they read. She also seems genuinely happy when she hangs out with Corrin during the festival.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Genderflipped: She's level-headed and calm, while Corrin is the energetic guy seeking to pull her out of her slump.
  • Second Love: Corrin is this to her after Jakob.
  • Security Cling: Does this to Corrin when he happens upon her after confessing to Jakob and being rejected.
  • Selective Obliviousness: She refuses to accept that she might be beginning to fall in love with Corrin during the chapters after the Festival, in part due to a combination of her low self-esteem and her position as his maid.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Downplayed: Corrin notices that Flora is always pretty, she just looks even prettier when outside her typical maid outfit. It doesn't help that she apparently only owns maid costumes.
  • Ship Tease: With Jakob and Corrin; the former is her canonical unrequited crush, the latter is her best friend who seeks her happiness.
    • Her tease with Corrin is even more amplified during the Festival two-parter, where she fully admits that Corrin is someone she's grateful for having in her life, and certainly confirmed in the closing lines of the Valentine's Incident chapters when she outright admits that she's in love with him.
  • Shipper on Deck: Her narration in later chapters implies she's on board with Corrin/Azura.
    • She also agrees to help Corrin ask Azura out, not being aware this is in fact one of Corrin's schemes to hook her and Jakob up.
  • Undying Loyalty: In contrast to her canonical counterpart, she has this towards Corrin due to their closer relationship than canon. She even betrays Garon after he threatens to kill her and her tribe to protect him.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: A whiff of this with Corrin after the Festival two-parter, after the two share an emotional night together at the eponymous festival.
  • What You Are in the Dark: During the blizzard that happens during Corrin's rescue attempt, Corrin collapses, half-dead from exposure to the cold and the effort of carrying her. Flora could choose to leave him behind, letting him die in the snow and already expressed her hatred and disgust for him. She chooses to save his life anyway without a second thought.
  • When She Smiles: Corrin notes that Flora looks nicer when she laughs or smiles. It seems to be part of the reason why he wants her to be happier.
  • Workaholic: Not so much as Jakob, but she does nearly work herself ill and Corrin sends her away on a vacation mainly for health reasons.

     Antic Order Members 

Tropes applying to all of them:

  • Caper Crew: The main Order members fill these roles.
    • The Mastermind: Corrin
    • The Partner in Crime: Azura
    • The Gadget Guy: Mozu, who makes the Order's smoke bombs and other contraptions.
    • The Acquisitioner: Felicia, who Corrin calls on because of her cuteness to allow them to acquire goods without being tracked.
    • The Distraction: Kaze; his main role in the Order is to keep Elise out of the way of the Order's operations.
    • The Driver: Silas; Corrin specifically calls him on because of his Cavalier class.
    • The Inside Man: Some of the retainers of the royal siblings; so far, Odin and Niles fill these roles, and it's implied Azama is also on Corrin's side.
    • The other minor members of the Order fill these roles and others as appropriate during each plot; Niles has acted as The Fall Guy at least once, and Elise replaced Azura as Corrin's Partner in Crime once despite not being in the Order.
  • Shipper on Deck: All of them, and the explicit purpose of this chapter of the Order is to ship Flora and Jakob. Everyone else just happens to be shipped to help get the main couple together.
  • True Companions: All of them will have each other's backs. In fact, Corrin selects them all on the basis of their loyalty to him and each other.

Kaze

  • Butt-Monkey: Undergoes quite a few misfortunes, including being knocked unconscious almost every time he hangs out with Felicia, being unable to live at home due to the massive stack of letters at his door and more.
    • Even his first meeting with Felicia is like this, as Felicia slugs him in the nose twice, knocking him unconscious. In the middle of a fight for their lives.
  • Clueless Chick Magnet: He even has a fanclub meeting every night in the Hoshidan capital itself, much to his chagrin. It's to the extent he can't even get into his house because their love letters fill up his door.
    • Said stack is still there during the Festival two-parter.
  • The Ditz: See the above. Then there's what happens when he tries to make "medicine" for Corrin....
  • Foil: To the more energetic and mischievous Silas.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Firmly believes that, despite then proceeding to think about how to repurpose his gifts to help others, that Corrin is a far better Nice Guy than he is. Corrin is a genuinely Nice Guy, but Kaze isn't exactly bad either.
  • Like Brother and Sister: How he views Elise.
  • Nice Guy: Is relatively easygoing and calm, similar to his canonical counterpart. The only time he raises his voice is when Azama trolls him by directing his fangirls towards him. He also refuses to fight Felicia when the latter reveals she has no hatred of Hoshido and offers to fix his nose that she accidentally broke.
  • Oblivious to Love: Is oblivious to his fangirls as well as Felicia's own interest in him.
  • Only Sane Man: The only member in the Order not explicitly involved with antics and thus the only member apart from Azura who expresses concern that the antics won't work.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to both the more energetic Silas and the more serious Saizou.
  • Ship Tease: With Felicia, although he's had a bit with Mozu. He seemed to be entirely okay with the idea of dating Felicia, for one....
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts: With Felicia, despite not even being in a relationship yet.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: Between him and Felicia. There's a clear attraction there, but between her Heroic Self-Deprecation and his Oblivious to Love nature, it's not likely to conclude any time soon.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Doesn't understand why he shouldn't go into the midst of his admirers to tell them to leave him alone. Azura and Felicia promptly tell him why.

Felicia

  • Apologises a Lot: Like her sister.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: The only reason she hasn't broken things in Corrin's room is because Corrin glues his fragile belongings to the table. She also knocks Kaze unconscious by accident during her first meeting with him after accidentally breaking his nose.
  • Guile Hero: Not to Corrin's level, but she can pull off some tricks, including lying to a crowd about being Kaze's girlfriend to pull him out of the situation.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Again, just like her sister, Felicia has low self-esteem.
  • I Can't Believe a Guy Like You Would Notice Me: Has a moment of this when Kaze asks her out to the Festival of Stars, although she calms down when he reassures her it's platonic.
    • Has this again during said Festival. Kaze, this time, is oblivious.
  • Love at First Sight: Is revealed to have fallen in love with Kaze the moment she met him. Unfortunately, she meets him in a fight for his life.
  • Nice Girl: Very much so, considering her interactions with Kaze and her sister as well as Elise. It's to the point that Kaze refuses to fight her during their first meeting because of her niceness.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: Exploited by Corrin; he knows nobody is going to suspect a Cute Clumsy Girl like Felicia being involved in the Antic Order and thus trusts her with the acquisition of supplies for the Order.
  • Ship Tease: With Kaze, mainly; the former has asked her out to the Festival of Stars, heavily implied to be the Hoshidan equivalent to Tanabata.
    • Even more emphasised when she panics about Kaze in the Festival and denies finding Kaze handsome. It's almost explicit that Felicia has feelings for him at this point
  • Shipper on Deck: Even more so than the others, for her sister and Jakob.
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts: With Kaze, despite not being in a relationship yet.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: Between her and Kaze. There's a clear attraction there, but between her own Heroic Self-Deprecation and Kaze's Oblivious to Love nature, it's not likely to conclude any time soon.

Silas

  • Adaptational Personality Change: The canonical Silas was closer to a Humble Hero who was more mellow. Reactsverse!Silas is an energetic, mischievous person similar to Corrin himself and the author explicitly compares him to Yosuke.
  • Foil: To the more easygoing and calm Kaze.
  • Lethal Chef: Can't cook to save his life and creates acid when he tries to make soup for Corrin.
  • Nice Guy: Is just as kind as Corrin is when it comes to his friends; he insists Flora join them to play games simply because she's a friend of Corrin's.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red to Kaze's blue.
  • Verbal Tic: In regards to Corrin, he calls him 'Partner'.

Niles

  • Body Double: Pulls this off for Corrin while he pranks Beruka.
  • The Gadfly: Is this to Leo.
  • The Mole: Acts as this for Corrin in the Nohrian court.
  • Troll: He's already one in canon, and then the Order gives him a reason to be one. His brief interaction with Beruka while disguised as Corrin exemplifies this. Then there's how he trolls Leo over his love of tomatoes and his crush on Hinoka....

Odin

  • Large Ham: As expected of Odin. It ends up spreading to Elise.
  • The Mole: Acts as this for Corrin in the Nohrian court.
  • Ship Tease: With Elise, as Elise constantly references him and his first major appearance ends with him hanging out with Elise and hitting it off.

     Other Characters 

Elise

  • The Cutie: Everyone adores her. Corrin specifically leaves her out of the Order's operations because he doesn't want her involved with the madness.
  • Genki Girl: Absolutely full of energy.
  • Hidden Depths: Beneath her kind, sweet and energetic exterior, she secretly just wants her brother to be happy and also to spend time with him.
  • Nice Girl: She absolutely adores Corrin and Azura, and even attempts to loop in Flora into the games she plays with her brother.
    • She's especially sweet to Flora, who she calls a second big sister and implicitly attempts to set up with Corrin.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Elise seems to be rather oblivious to deeper things, but several hints imply that Elise is keenly aware of bad things that happen around her and simply chooses to ignore it for whatever reason.
    • She knows to leave Corrin and Flora to have a night in private, understanding that Flora might like it more. It's also confirmed that she's totally aware of what's going on between Flora and Corrin and has been for quite some time.
  • Ship Tease: With Odin; she's picked up some of his Large Ham traits and she mentions enjoying being around him, too. She also decides to spend the Festival of Stars with him.
    • Surprisingly, with Sakura of all people, when Corrin mentions she might be having a bit too much fun stuffing Sakura in a corset.
  • Shipper on Deck: For Flora and Jakob after Corrin grabs her to help him get them together.
    • And now for Flora and Corrin, seeing as she slinks away to leave them alone on the Festival of Stars. And it's heavily implied by the fact that she refers to Flora as 'big sis'.

Jakob

Camilla

  • Big Sister Instinct: Claims to be driven by this to protect Corrin. Selena thinks otherwise.
  • Cool Big Sis: However, she genuinely is a great big sister, especially to Elise.
  • The Gadfly: Certainly trolls Xander over his implied crush on Charlotte. And then there's how she trolls Beruka over her relationship with Benny...
  • Shipper on Deck: To Beruka and Benny.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: She seems to think she's in a conventional Reactsverse story, where the protagonist isn't in the Antic Order. Unluckily for her, Corrin is.
  • Yandere: She is this, much to Selena's irritation and Corrin's inconvenience.

Saizou and Kagerou

  • Disproportionate Retribution: Saizou's motivation for relentlessly hunting down the prankster? Basically, a few pranks. Kagerou even points this out.
  • The Confidant: Kagerou is this to Orochi; this is how she finds out about Corrin's pranks.
  • Fiery Redhead: Saizou's temper is specifically noted by Corrin as handy for his pranks.
  • Genre Savvy: Kagerou knows that Corrin's pranks are harmless and actually work, so she's willing to let him go unhindered.
  • Guile Hero: Saizou almost manages to out-gambit Corrin and only fails because Corrin out-gambits him in turn.
  • Hidden Depths: Kagerou is heavily implied to still hold a torch for Saizou, as well as being regretful of ending the relationship they used to have. She's also one of the very few people who isn't in the Antic Order who's also in the know as to what's actually going on.
  • Innocent Cohabitation: Is mentioned to have this with Kaze and Saizou, the former because his house is too overloaded with letters from his admirers for him to live in.
  • Only Sane Man: Kagerou is this to the fiery Saizou and the skeptical Takumi. She's also the only one of the three who not only knows about Corrin's activities, but doesn't care, knowing full well that Corrin is doing something good this time.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Saizou is the angrier one and Kagerou the calmer one.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Saizou wants to perpetrate this upon the prankster responsible for a Noodle Incident.
  • Running Gag: Every time Ryoma sends a retainer to hunt down the prankster, these two always end up thinking they will be called on. They never are and end up doing it themselves.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Their names are spelled in the original Japanese instead of the English localised names, unlike Beruka (Belka), Azama (Asama), Kaze (Suzukaze) and Benny (Benoit). This is apparently intentional.
    • It's revealed that the English localisations are actually the Nohrian translations of their names. Niles, apparently, made fun of Saizou for his name to the extent that he wanted to hunt down the perpetrator.
  • Those Two Guys: Always appear together with the exception of one Stinger. Downplayed recently as Kagerou has made more appearances on her own or with Orochi instead.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Saizou, at least. Kaze mentions he was no different from Felicia when they were children.
  • Working with the Ex: The two used to be in a relationship before cutting it off for professional reasons.

Takumi

  • Butt-Monkey: Absolutely nobody listens to him except Saizou and Kagerou, for one. Then there's the humiliation he receives at Mozu's hand....
    • Zig-Zagged: However, he's shown to be rather intelligent, if simply exasperated during the Festival two-parter.
  • The Cassandra: Is the only one to realise Corrin is the prankster the Hoshidans and Nohrians are hunting down. Nobody believes him.
    • Zigzagged: He's right about Corrin, Odin and Silas being in on the Order. However, Elise is completely innocent. As for their motives, he operates under the assumption that they're purely trolling. They aren't; their main aim is pairing Flora and Jakob up.
  • Ship Tease: With Camilla; Flora spies him hanging around Camilla during the Festival two-parter and seemingly stalking her.
  • Those Two Guys: With Hinoka; he appears to blame Corrin and insist on his guilt while Hinoka defends him.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: He believes he's in a conventional Reactsverse fic where the Antic Order are the usual Sitcom Archnemeses who are motivated by nothing more than the desire to troll. For once, the Order has a purely innocent aim, even if their means are rather trolly.

Leo

  • Butt-Monkey: Oh, nothing seems to go right for poor Leo in this story, considering he's surrounded by trolls and pranksters.
  • Genre Savvy: Knows that Niles and Odin are not appropriate for chasing down the prankster. Considering that Niles and Odin are both Antic Order members, he's more right than he knows.
  • Only Sane Man: Of the Nohrian siblings, as even Xander is Not So Above It All. However...
  • Ship Tease: With Hinoka. Niles teases him about his crush on her and, though Leo objects to it, he never explicitly denies it.
  • Unwanted Harem: Gets one temporarily during the Harem chapters, courtesy of Orochi's love potion.

Hinoka

  • No Guy Wants an Amazon: Implied to be why she thinks Leo would never return her feelings.
  • Only Sane Man: Seems to be immune to the embarrassment that Corrin attempts to induce with the fanfics he picked in Chapter Nine. However, it's implied this is primarily because the fic in question shipped her and Leo together, the latter upon whom she holds feelings for.
  • Second Love: Leo seems to be this for her; Takumi calls her on having a crush on Corrin to which she retorts that she 'got over it'.
  • Ship Tease: With Leo; it's revealed that she has a huge crush on him but doesn't believe he'd like her back.
  • Those Two Guys: With Takumi; she defends Corrin from Takumi's accusations of him being the prankster.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Seems to believe Corrin is innocent of the pranking. She would be correct in a typical Reactsverse fic where the protagonist is aligned against the Order. However, this is not your typical Reactsverse fic; in this case, Corrin IS the prankster.

Izana

  • Jive Turkey: Tries to speak like this, only for Flora and Felicia to not understand a word he's saying. It's implied Corrin told him to do that to troll Izana.
  • Troll: He lets Janus mess with Corrin for kicks, for one.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: He dies in the Revelations route in canon, but is somehow still alive in the Reactsverse.

Benny and Beruka

  • Adorkable: Both of them, Beruka even more so due to being an Emotionless Girl learning how to talk normally.
  • Battle Couple: The two of them work together to break Corrin and his friends out of Castle Krakenburg. It's also implied they were this during the events of the game.
  • Butt-Monkey: Benny. His first appearance involves him trapped in a pit of fondue and he spends most of his debut chapter in his underwear.
  • Emotionless Girl: Beruka, although she seems to be growing out of it.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Benny is tall enough and strong enough to carry both Nyx and Kana like footballs as well as being one of the taller males, dwarfing Beruka in comparison.
  • Moe Couplet: You wouldn't expect an Emotionless Girl assassin and The Dreaded to be a Adorkable. You would be wrong.
  • Nice Guy: Benny. Surprisingly, Beruka is also this; both of them help each other out and generally act like decent people, even going out of their way to bail Corrin out of Castle Krakenburg.
  • Official Couple: Due to Corrin's machinations, although it's implied that they would've gotten together eventually and all Corrin did was expedite the process.
  • Super Strength: Benny, considering he manages to blast apart a horde of love potion-drugged partygoers with his bare hands and smashes a massive hole in a stone wall.
  • Those Two Guys: Only ever appear together.

Lilith

  • Shrinking Violet: Seems to be this, judging from her first appearance during chapter 12's Stinger.
  • The Bus Came Back: Mentions that Corrin almost literally got her Put on a Bus to enjoy the world, explaining her absence during the first twelve chapters.
  • Unexpected Character: Considering the fic's focus on other characters and Lilith's minor plot importance in canon, her appearance in the Reactsverse comes as a slight surprise.

Kana

Corrin's daughter from the future. Unlike Corrin, she's quite serious and very focused on protecting her father.

  • Aloof Big Sister: Is very much serious and calm, unlike her younger brother.
  • Guile Hero: The daughter of two of them.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: With Janus as the foolish one.
  • Indy Ploy: Is rather good at these, judging from her formulation of an escape route and creation of smoke bombs while in the latrines. Just like her father.
  • My Own Grampa: A weird variation. Corrin notes that Kana would be a good name for his daughter, although pointing out that the Kana he knows as a friend is too old to be his child. Later, his Kana is revealed to be his child.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Calm and collected to Corrin's mischievous and teasing and later to her brother, Janus.
  • She Is All Grown Up: Compared to her game counterpart, she's mentioned to have a figure similar to that of Azura.
  • The Bus Came Back: Is mentioned having gone mountain-climbing with Gunter. Three chapters later, she returns to Fort Corrin.
  • Wham Shot: Chapter 12's Stinger reveals that Reactsverse Kana is the same Kana as the one from the game; specifically, that she's Corrin's child.

Janus

Corrin's son from the future. He takes very heavily after his father.....in all ways but his success.

  • Bad Liar: Izana sees straight through his lie that he's called Canas and knows what he's here for. Izana being who he is, he lets him through anyway.
  • Deconstructed Character Archetype: Of Morgan. Unlike Morgan, we're shown exactly what would motivate him to attempt to pair his parents back up, as well as why that's a bad thing. Furthermore, most of his attempts backfire, but not with hilarity, unlike Morgan's attempts. He's also this to The Prankster as used in the Reactsverse at large.
  • Expy: Of Morgan. He's more or less her Spear Counterpart.
  • Foil: Janus to his own father. Janus is very much a prankster of the Weiss Reacts / Lucina Reacts type, focused on madcap hijinks and Zany Schemes. Corrin is a new type of prankster that, while employing madcap hijinks, is just as likely to use his skills as The Charmer and a Guile Hero to succeed. Moreover, Corrin's plans largely succeed, while Janus' one scheme thus far has failed hilariously.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: With Kana as the responsible one.
  • Guile Hero: He tries to be one. Of course, his father and his sister are genuinely good at it, while he...isn't.
  • Keet: Seems to be very excitable and very mischievous.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The more rambunctious sibling between him and Kana.
  • Sad Clown: He misses his old family and desperately wants it to be the same again. This is hidden beneath his rambunctious exterior and his pranks.
  • Wham Shot: His appearance confirms that Corrin and Flora eventually do get together, just as Kana's confirmed that he eventually will end up with either Azura or Flora.

Scarlet

  • Blood Knight: She asks Ryoma to tie her to her wyvern and tie a lance to her hand when she's bedridden from Gunter's attack. Ryoma has to gently put her down, much to her disappointment.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Is mentioned a few times to be training soldiers in Cheve prior to her first actual appearance in Chapter 14.
  • Cool Big Sis: Just like canon. She proves her coolness by helping the group escape Castle Krakenburg while the love potion still remains in effect.
  • The Gadfly: Teases Corrin and Leo quite a fair bit during her introductory chapter. She also teases Nyx, who is far less appreciative of it.
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl: Scarlet is hinted to be this, judging by her disappointment at the ball going horribly wrong and not getting to drink wine. She also spends most of the chapter on Fire Emblem Fates passed out from a hangover due to drinking heavily the night before.
    • Made explicit when she invites Ryoma out for drinks during the Festival.
  • Only Mostly Dead: Is subjected to this after Gunter implicitly botches his shot, hitting her in the side. Nyx even admits that had Scarlet been hit dead on, she would have died.
  • Refuge in Audacity: Uses this to basically break into the palace of the King of Hoshido himself. To ask him out for drinks. Luckily, Ryoma likes her too much to question this.
    • Uses this again to convince Corrin to let her live with him to get closer to Ryoma. Corrin approves.
  • Ship Tease: With Ryoma, again just like canon.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Scarlet dies Taking the Bullet for the Avatar in the canon Revelation route. In the Reactsverse, she survives to the end of the war and makes her first appearance in chapter 14.
  • Taking the Bullet: Just as in canon, Scarlet takes a shot for Corrin, taking Gunter's attack. However, it's implied Gunter deliberately aimed nonlethally at Scarlet's left side, allowing her to barely survive.

Nyx

  • The Archmage: Is a highly skilled mage to the extent that she has to stop herself from instinctively returning a curse with the appropriate countercurse right away.
  • Berserk Button: Doesn't approve of being reminded that she's in a far younger body than she would be.
  • The Eeyore: Seems to be rather subdued and depressed compared to everyone else.
  • Grumpy Old Woman: Despite being in a child's body.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Is rather grumpy and irritable, but pushes Scarlet to the ground and protects her from a dark magic blast despite having been insulted by her a moment before.
  • Magic A Is Magic A: Points out that she can't just 'magic away' a love potion without knowing how or who made it, despite being a specialist in curses and countercurses.
  • The Smart Guy: Is mentioned to be a master of curses and countercurses.

Ryoma

Rinkah, Kaden and Keaton

  • Big Eater: Rinkah gets irritated with Keaton for getting them lost as she hasn't eaten in an hour, implying she's this.
  • Epic Fail: On the way to the Northern Fortress, somehow gets herself and Kaze landed in Garon's bedroom instead. This is how she and Kaze meet Corrin during the game instead of because of a skirmish as the game originally says.
  • Like an Old Married Couple: Rinkah and Keaton bicker like one, certainly.
  • No Sense of Direction: Rinkah manages to get Kaden and Keaton lost towards the Ice Tribe's old village instead of Hoshido. She's also revealed to be the reason why Kaze and her got captured by the Nohrians; in an attempt to guide Kaze to the Northern Fortress, she instead guides him to Garon's bedroom.
    • Keaton is also this, as he accidentally gets the three of them sent to Windmire instead of Hoshido.
  • Only Sane Man: Kaden is this to Keaton and Rinkah, refusing to get involved in their argument.
