Tropes associated with Nala:

Dita The Spiral Horn, Arca of Garut
Tropes associated with Dita:

Khaula The Golden Deer, Arca of Bogor

Tropes associated with Khaula:

  • Absolute Cleavage
  • Archer Archetype: Her second Weapon of Choice, and actually, the more powerful one.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: If she was in human form she'd played this trope straight.
  • Animal Motifs: Stag. And if you count her bat wings on her cloths, it would make her have two Animal Motifs. Her clothes literally called "Bat Cloth" in Sundanese.
  • Badass Armfold: Her default pose in cutscenes.
  • Badass Normal: Before became an Arca she was a soldier in Dutch Colonnial era.
  • BFS: Her other Weapon of Choice, the Golok.
  • Broken Bird: In the middle of the war, her troop was nearly annihilated, leaving only herself and the man she loved gravely injured. She tried to ask for help from nearby villagers, but they lock their doors instead and she lost faith in humanity.
  • Bow and Sword, in Accord: Uses the sword more often but the stronger weapon is her bow. And her personality is more of an archer than swordswoman. Aloof? Check. Calm? Check. Prideful? Check. Prefers to do the job alone? Good lord, yes.
  • Forest Ranger: Not self-appointed, but surely would be more than happy to be addressed as this.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Even more so than Dita.
  • Green Thumb
  • Humans Are Bastards: For leaving herself and her beloved bleed to death, she thinks this way. Doesn't help that people nowadays forgot about their native cultures.
  • Making a Splash: Bogor was known for having high chance of raining even in Indonesia's tropical climate, thus it would make sense if rain is associated with her too.
  • No Social Skills: She secluded herself from humanity the second she became an Arca, and thus, keeps her speech in the classic Indonesian style from the Dutch Collonial era, making her speech very awkward. One of the reason she rarely speaks.
  • Older Than They Look
    • Really 700 Years Old: She was born in 1903 and the game takes place in 2013, making her 110 years old.
  • Perpetual Frowner
  • Purple Is Powerful
  • The Stoic
  • Undying Loyalty: Not for the humans, for the town of Bogor itself.

Asri The Emerald Dragon, Arca of Sukabumi

  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Lacks the height, but surely checks the boxes of dark-colored hair, graceful presence, have mysterious aura, and always collected.
  • Animal Motifs: Dragon.
  • Beware of the Nice Ones
  • Color-Coded Characters: Green-gold.
  • Emerald Power: One of the strongest and oldest Arca in Indonesia who dressed in green. Heck, the word emerald is on her title!
  • Eyes Always Shut
  • Handicapped Badass: Heavily implied. She is never seen walking on her own feet. As an Arca she always sat on Rawaja's head, in human form she stay on a wheelchair. And perhaps, that wheelchair is actually Rawaja, just like Celty's bike actually is a horse named Shooter.
  • Kicking Ass in All Her Finery: Her dress in Arca form is based off Javanese noble/royalties, and boy that doesn't stop her from giving you a nice beating.
  • Making a Splash: Nyi Roro Kidul, the mythological character Asri based off is the ruler of the Southern Sea so that's why it's no surprise she had control over water too.
  • The High Queen: Rawaja refers to her as this. Helps that she is indeed based off The High Queen of Southern Sea herself.
  • Older Than They Look: Her speech implies this. No one knows how long she have been an Arca. Legend even said that she was the first, one and only Arca of Sukabumi.
  • Perpetual Smiler
  • Powers Do the Fighting: Again, heavily implied. Couple this with the implication she is not able to walk and the fact she is one of the strongest Arca, you get the deal.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Heavily implied. After Nala departed to the portal that connects Jakarta and Karang Hawu, Rawaja commented that she doesn't change a bit even after thousands of years.
  • The Pollyanna: She have been an Arca for thousands of years, and maybe already gained her precognitive ability before became an Arca, meaning definitely she have seen many Bad Future possibilities... But she believes she is not The Omniscient, believes that what she saw is not the entirety of the future and there is still several other possibilities, believes that there is still chance to turn the tides no matter how small the odds is. As Rawaja puts it, may thousand of years passed, no matter how bad the future she saw and no matter how low the chance is, she is still the naive little princess who believed in miracles.
  • Yaksa Puppet: Can control some Yaksa under her control. some we say, some.
