AKA: The Hero
- Ambiguously Bi: The Beast can become this, depending on the player's choices in game and whom they choose to form a relationship with.
The Beast: It's not straight if they look good in a skirt.
- Ultimately a defied trope. Even in paths that involve her romancing men (notably with The Boy's route, and infamously with The President in a cut scene), her narration makes it very clear that she still identifies herself as a lesbian, and emphasises that she isn't interested in men; any interest she shows in them is justified as being something she views as in-character for her brother to do, or as otherwise appealing to her preferences as a queer person anyway.
- Book Dumb: Her GPA sits at a shockingly low 1.0. Played with, in that she is wiser than she appears and the low grades are partly because she does she doesn't think High School really means much in the long run.
- Butch Lesbian: Downplayed. The Beast herself is more androgynous in her appearance than overtly masculine. Her personal wardrobe does have "butch" elements to it though, like her biker jacket and heavy-duty work boots, and she uses the word to describe herself.
- Deadpan Snarker: She gets in a few good ones at the Prince's expense.
- Ethical Slut: She enjoys sex. A lot. But she very much makes sure her partners enjoy themselves as well and don't do anything they don't want to.
- Hidden Depths: Despite being framed as being rather stupid, she has a lot of emotional intelligence and strong opinions (for example, her speech to the Photographer about how no one really goes and runs away from home to a foreign country to escape their problems).
- Lady Looks Like a Dude: She's rather flat-chested and has androgynous facial features. This, of course, helps her to more easily masquerade as her twin brother.
- Manipulative Bastard: A possible way to play her, especially if you want to keep your suspicion low and your votes high, leading to a few Your Approval Fills Me with Shame moments with her brother.
AKA: The Brother
The one who got The Beast into this mess, and is making her narrate the story back to him. While she's tied to a chair...
- Ambiguously Bi: The Swimmer is his ex-girlfriend, and it's pretty heavily implied that he had some kind of sexual or romantic relationship with The Boy; however, see the below trope.
- Asexual: The Prince displays mostly disdain for the Beast's romantic pursuits and never expresses sexual attraction to anyone. It's also implied that he never had sex with The Swimmer while they were dating.
- Bourgeois Bohemian: Has elements of this in that he used to smoke cannabis with his classmate, The Boy - and that's not getting into how he's a socialist/anti-capitalist who's a member of a terrorist/revolutionary organisation, targeting his very rich father first and foremost.
- Hidden Depths: Who would have guessed that his plans involved being an anti-capitalist who wants to start a revolution?
- The Chessmaster: See: "grandiose Machiavellian piece of shit."
- The Friend Nobody Likes: Sure, he might be one of the main cool kids in his class, but that doesn't mean his classmates are particularly found of him.
- Manipulative Bastard: See also: "grandiose Machiavellian piece of shit." Not quite a master though, since he may get what he wants, but he's also hated for it.
- Rich Bitch: A rare Gender Flipped example of the trope.
- Wicked Cultured: He has a lot more cultural knowledge than the Beast does, frequently expressing exasperation at her not getting a reference.
- Wholesome Crossdresser: During the Boy's scenes, we learn that the Prince has a little black dress. The Beast also once makes a joke about him wearing her leather skirt, and he insists that he didn't try it...before adding that he wore a cute sundress instead (the Beast, for reference, doesn't own any sundresses).The Prince: I'm surprised you don't wear dresses, they're so comfortable! It feels really freeing.
AKA: The Rival
- Arranged Marriage: Set up for one with the Beauty. Depending on your choices, you could get her out of this arrangement.
- Student Council President: His role.
- Unknown Rival: It's a Lampshaded trope that he is this trope to The Prince; The Prince cares way less about the President, and their rivalry, than the President himself does.
AKA: The Lieutenant
- Academic Alpha Bitch: Definitely can come across this way, although not as much as The President does.
- Asexual: On her route, it's possible to give her her first kiss. The Beast notes just how strange and disjointed it feels, while the Nerd declares afterwards that she really doesn't get what other people like about it. In the end, the Beast helps her come to terms with her (lack of) sexuality. The achievement for finishing her route is "Aim for the Ace".
- Ignored Enamored Underling: A lot of other characters assume this is the case with her and The President. It isn't (see above point about her asexuality); she's just deeply loyal to him.
- Shrinking Violet: She's is normally outspoken, except when it comes to romance.
AKA: The Flower
- Dude Looks Like a Lady: He has very delicate and feminine features, wears dresses, and is first encountered in the girl's corridor; this all leads The Beast to initially assume that he identified as a woman, before realising that the dresses are a new look and he still identifies as male.
- Shipper on Deck: For the Prince and the Beauty.
- Deconstructed, as he has ulterior motives for wanting the Prince to romance the Beauty - he's in love with the President, and essentially wants the Beauty to be out of the way.
- Wholesome Crossdresser: He likes wearing dresses.
AKA: The Slut
AKA: The Flame
- Betty and Veronica: Is initially presented as the Betty to the Swimmer's Veronica; doing the Swimmer's route locks you out of her route. Subverted in that the Photographer is much more canny and dangerous than she appears to be.
- Camera Fiend: She is this, being an apparent Instagram celebrity, and also the person in charge of the school yearbook.
- Do You Trust Me??: A consistent theme in her route is to do with trust, and she asks this question more than once; most specifically, she asks if you'd be willing to give her all of your votes, and perform a sexual favour in order to get them back in exchange for her returning what she gave you and reward you with interest.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Your brother tells you to be wary of her, and one end of her route involves date-rape drugs.
AKA: The Bro
AKA: The Princess
- Arranged Marriage: Set up for one with the President. Depending on your choices, you could get her out of this arrangement.
- Brains and Bondage: She provides one of the most thoughtful portrayals of BDSM in games. Even if you don't have much contact with her outside the sessions, it's made clear how much planning she does.
- Secret Keeper: Knows about the Twin Switch, and helps you remove suspicion... for a price.
AKA: The Hacker
AKA: The Boss
AKA: The Abuser / Laurence Sr.
- Abusive Parents: Right there in the name. Plus, the way he talks about and treats his daughter...
- Blonde Guys Are Evil: Genetically speaking, both his kids are blonde, so he most likely is as well.
- The Voice: Theres no video from his side of the call.
- To the Pain: He has some very interesting ideas what will happen to the apparent captors of his son should he not get released, including them getting arrested, their father suffering a tragic accident, and their mother being dragged through the mud by the media during the trial before they will be murdered in prison.
- Walking Spoiler: Its hard to talk about his involvement in the plot without spoiling the Princes schemes.
