- Amnesiacs are Innocent: Very much so.
- Blank Slate: Just about everything in her head was erased. Nobody is happy about this.
- Cannot Cross Running Water: After she explicitly states this, the stupid river almost kills her.
- Career-Ending Injury: It certainly doesn't seem like she's going to be fully recovering anytime soon.
- Death of Personality: A completely different person since her injury, though Carol is convinced that the old her is still in there somewhere.
- Easy Amnesia: Not really. The accident that leads to her amnesia involves being swept underwater, nearly being crushed by a giant robot, getting caught in an explosion, hitting her head no less than twice, and attaining a nasty injury. Frankly she's lucky to be alive.
- Fate Worse than Death: Lilac's amnesia could be considered this in several ways (then again, not in several others).
- Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Blue agrees.
- Loss of Identity: Unsurprising, considering amnesia.
- (Wo)Man Child: Amnesilac takes on very childlike behavior, finding interest in stuffed animals and kindergarten-level reading material despite being 16 years old.
- Reverse Grip: The incorrect way she holds a pencil.
- Security Blanket: Blue acts as this for her.
- Shrinking Violet: Fades a bit as she reconnects with Milla and Carol, but still shows around most others.
- Tap on the Head: Very much averted, considering... well, you know.
- Trauma-Induced Amnesia: Yep.
- Wheelchair Woobie: She's only in one for a little while, but she's certainly at one of her most pitiful points during this time period.
- Brooding Tomboy, Gentle Girl: The Brooding Tomboy to Milla's Gentle Girl.
- Drowning My Sorrows: In vending machine chips instead of alcohol, but it gives a similar effect.
- It's All My Fault: Carol feels that she's responsible for Lilac's accident. Despite Milla refuting this, it's implied that Carol still harbors guilt.
Milla is one of the main characters in Memories of a Freedom Lost. Although the youngest of the girls, she's the one who handles the situation with the most maturity (for the most part, at least).
- Adorably Precocious Child: If more depressing than adorable. Her primary character conflict is taking responsibility in the situation since Lilac and Carol can't.
- Even before her turn around, Milla is the one who dives into the water to rescue Lilac.
- Badass Adorable: Well she did kind of blow up a giant robot with a lazer she shot out of her hands.
- Brooding Tomboy, Gentle Girl: The Gentle Girl to Carol's Brooding Tomboy.
- Children Are Innocent: She doesn't seem to recognize the depth of the situation until she's forced to.
- Pintsized Powerhouse: Yep.
- Wise Beyond Her Years: As she displays at the end of chapter 3.Milla: It doesn't matter if it was your fault or my fault or Lilac's fault or the robot's fault! It doesn't matter!!
Neera is the Royal Advisor to the Magister, and former mentor to Team Lilac. Despite Lilac's condition, she's continuing Milla's training on Milla's own request.
Gong is the General of Shang Tu, and a good friend to Team Lilac.
- Friend to All Children: Or at least to Team Lilac, seeing as he's the only one to give Carol and Milla that hug they so desperately need, even if it does nearly suffocate them.
- Gentle Giant: He's big and strong, but very kind to Lilac and her friends.
- Nice Guy: Seriously, how many military Generals do you see giving out hugs?
The Royal Magister is the ruler of Shang Tu, and the one Team Lilac answers to and receives their missions from. Or, the one they used to, anyway.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: He's very understanding of Team Lilac's situation, and doesn't require them to continue their duties until Lilac has recovered. If that ever happens at all.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: He pays the expenses of Lilac's medical bill so Team Lilac doesn't have to.
- Spock Speak: Everything he says has that certain note of formality to it.
Dr. Quack is one of the top doctors in the Shang Tu Hospital Health Center. He's assigned to Lilac's case, and thus is stuck with Carol and Milla as well.
- Dressed to Heal: Between the white coat and clipboard, he fits this trope to a T.
- Labcoat of Science and Medicine: Like every good doctor should, he dresses the part.
- Not Good with People: He's in his element with medicine, but not so much with heartbroken children.
- Punny Name: If not a very clever one.
- On a side note, the name "Romedius" is derived from the word "remedy."
Blue is a stuffed animal that Carol gives to Lilac in Chapter 4. He's rarely left her side since.
