  • Age: 16
  • Birthday: April 9, 1998 (Aries)
  • Sexuality: Pan
  • Pronouns: She/Her
  • Height: 5'4"
  • Race/Ethnicity: Black American

Valerie is the main protagonist of the story. She is a cheerful and energetic sixteen-year-old girl who loves sweets, games, and eating. She's not very good at academics and is a bit naive, but she makes up for it in determination and optimism. She's friendly, carefree, and loves making new friends. She transforms into the titular Diamond Heart and represents love and hope.

Tropes associated with Valerie:

  • All-Loving Heroine: Fitting seeing as she's the warrior of love and hope.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Has ADHD and can't focus on her studies. She usually gets distracted by cute things or cute people.
  • Bad Liar: She claims she isn't one, but in the very second chapter she manages to expose her secret identity to her friends.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Normally Valerie is sweet and forgiving, but in chapter seven, she can tell off Liam for his cowardice if you persist in staying and talking to him.
  • Big Eater: Is constantly talking about cake and sweets and cares way more about missing lunch than getting lectures about her grades.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Valerie has thick noticeable eyebrows.
  • Book Dumb: She constantly gets terrible scores on tests.
  • Cuddle Bug: In chapter four, Valerie has an irresistible urge to hug someone, and you can choose whether she hugs Clover, Sophie, Ethan, or Zacharie.
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead: In civilian form.
  • Expy: Valerie's flaws (clumsiness and bad grades) as well as strong points (a kind heart, a willingness to befriend everyone, and a refusal to give up hope) are reminiscent of Usagi Tsukino from the Sailor Moon franchise.
  • Fiery Red Head: In civilian form.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Her older brother, Nolan, is way better at studies than her and is at the top of his class.
  • Genki Girl: A cheerful and emotional young lady.
  • Girlish Pigtails: When transformed she gains massive pink twintails.
  • In-Series Nickname: Val, used especially by Sophie, Ethan, and by the rest of the cast if they're close with her.
  • It's All My Fault: Valerie blames herself for Ethan's transformation into a Nightmare in chapter seven, since Valerie wasn't able to save him in the previous chapter. In order to avoid this resulting in a bad ending, the player needs to pick "How horrible" rather than "I'm sorry", because the latter will result in Valerie's self-loathing being strong enough to de-transform her.
  • Meaningful Name: Valerie means "strong and valiant" and Amaranth is a type of grain with red flowers.
  • Modesty Shorts: Her Magical Girl outfit has a pair of dark pink shorts underneath the dress, similar to some Pretty Cure heroines.
  • Nice Girl: Valerie is kind and friendly to everyone, and is even willing to sometimes forgive Liam's abrasive attitude.
  • Oblivious to Love: Despite being the crystal of love she's terrible at guessing when other people love her. She hasn't noticed her best friend Sophie's crush on her, and when she suspects Alex might have a crush on someone, she wonders why he would ask her out.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: In Crystal Warrior form. She's also this in her human form, as Valerie has red hair and is sweet to everyone.
  • Stock Shoujo Heroine: Like most Magical Girl leads, she is cute, girly, sweet, and possesses The Power of Love.
  • Sweet Tooth: Makes sense for the daughter of two bakers.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Valerie is not usually the sort of person to give a speech like this, given her usual sweet personality. However, in chapter seven, if you persist in staying and talking to Liam, she accuses him of being cowardly and running away just because he failed once. Meanwhile, Valerie constantly gets bad grades and messes up, but she keeps moving forward anyway, so Liam needs to be more proactive in deciding what he wants, does he want to be a Crystal Warrior or does he want to give up the Miracle Link to someone else?
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Valerie tends to give speeches like this when others are feeling down, such as when Clover is feeling guilty over yelling at Zacharie in chapter 4 or when Ethan is feeling insecure in chapter 6, and this culminates in the whole team giving Ethan a speech like this in chapter 7 to snap him out of his Nightmare form.
  • Youthful Freckles: She has freckles and is one of the more childish members of the team.
