The girls of Sweet Amoris High. Like the guys they have a meter that tells you how much they like you (even Amber). But none of them are dateable so they are called friendship o'meters instead.

The mean girl of the school. From the very first meeting she makes it clear she does not like your candy and there is little you can do to get her to change her mind. She is who she is and she isn't afraid to show it, unless acting innocent will give her the advantage. Still despite her underhanded, cheating, and just plain mean tendencies, there are hints that she's not totally a bad person. Her two best friends are Charlottes and Li and Capucine desperately wants to be on her good side. She is the younger twin sister of Nathaniel and they have a pretty up and down relationship. She cannot stand your Candy and Kentin and she has a crush on Castiel (and Dajan. And briefly Kentin).

The nice girl of the University. Amber comes back to University Life better than ever and we mean that in a good way. Since her modelling career took off our girl has been doing some soul-searching and appears to have found the answer to whatever question she was asking herself in high school. That answer appears to have been maturity...either that or growth-spurt.

High School Life

  • Alpha Bitch
  • Art Evolution: The only one of the girls to be redesigned (discounting Li and Charlotte. since they didn't have their own sprites until later and didn't receive any outfit changes):
  • Attention Whore
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Her and Nathaniel. Though she is willing to throw him under a bus when he crosses her there are moments where it is clear she does care and worry about him.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted in episode 9 where you can see the results of her allergy to nuts.
    • Played straight in episode 28, where after her Traumatic Haircut delivered by Priya, she receives an updated look which just as attractive as the original. Unfortunately, this does nothing to combat her ego.
  • Beauty Mark: Near her left eye.
  • Berserk Button: Talking to Nathaniel, bothering Nathaniel, showing interest in Nathaniel. In fact, it upsets her MORE if you are close to Nathaniel than if you are close to Castiel.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Obviously she doesn't like you getting close to Castiel. However she never talks to him about it, just takes it out on you. Also see Berserk Button for a platonic version.
  • Dumb Blonde: Not necessarily an idiot but she cheats in school and your candy certainly has a few insults to her intelligence handy.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: The introduction of Debrah. For once, Amber's hate is warranted.
  • Fashion Model: Allegedly, she's a model. It doesn't seem like her career's going well, though, judging by the number of rejection letters she gets. Her mother was a model, too.
  • He's Back: And not in a good way. The first thing she does in episode 24 is get your candy detention by stealing (ripping apart) your homework assignment. What's worse is she later on tries to lie about to Nathaniel (who thankfully doesn't believe her at all).
  • Hidden Depths: There are small but noticeable hints that there are more facets to her personality than the default Alpha Bitch.
  • It's All About Me: she is convinced Nathaniel's duty as the student body president is to let her get away with everything, calling her out makes him unworthy of the position. If you dare to defend yourself, you are the bad guy, obviously.
  • Kick the Dog: In early episodes, she doesn't care at all about how her actions will affect Nathaniel, and often uses her position as her parent's favorite to manipulate him (to be fair, she doesn't know that he is being abused.) During Castiel's arc, she let your candy, who was already being ostracized by everyone, take the blame for her prank on Deborah. Later on, in episode 32, she mocks Capucine to the point of tears about dating a nerdy 15-year-old, for which your candy thinks that even though Capucine isn't the nicest person, it's horrible for Amber to take advantage of her low self esteem, especially considering Amber is the only person Capucine is loyal to.
  • My Brother Is Off Limits!
  • Parental Favoritism: Nathaniel says she's a daddy's girl but it appears their mom also prefers her.
  • Secret Keeper: Subverted. She PRETENDED to know what was going on at her house to get a new cellphone from you. In truth she had NO idea what was going on.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Your candy. Also Debrah, the one person she hates more than you.
  • Smug Snake: She seems to overestimate her power and popularity.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Like Lysander's name, the ending is spelled differently from version to version.
  • Spoiled Brat: Not only are her parents wealthy, but they let her get away with essentially whatever she wants, as opposed to poor Nathaniel.
  • Sticky Fingers: Steals your money, steals Kentin's money, steals Dajan's necklace, steals Melody's snacks, steals your snacks, steals a stamp...
  • Traumatic Haircut: Delivered to her by Priya. It's a case of Laser-Guided Karma, though, because Amber was planning to cut Priya's hair with the very same scissors.
  • Unlucky Childhood Friend: She fell for Castiel when he fixed her doll when they were children. They aren't even friends now if they ever were before.
  • Used to Be A Sweet Kid: As a result of being bullied by her brother and being spoiled for it by her parents, came out as the Amber we all know and love...not.
  • Villainous Breakdown: She does NOT take learning that Nathaniel is being abused well. Once she finds out she's in her 'sad animation' for the rest of the episode.

University Life


    Li and Charlotte 
Amber's two best friends they are almost always right behind her in anything (literally). Neither of them are very nice to you the rare times you come across them by themselves either. Li is the Asian and Charlotte is the brunette.

  • Asian Airhead: Li is type 1.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Charlotte.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: When talking about Debrah, Charlotte makes an interesting prediction about what she does at night.
  • Jerkass: The both of them are still mean to you even when Amber isn't around.
    • Of course, while Li is just vapid and rude, Charlotte does some pretty... messed up things: upon finding out Iris was briefly dating her boyfriend (note Iris had NO idea he was involved, let alone with who) her reaction is to save sexy pictures Iris sent him and use them to blackmail her into ruining her own life.
  • Morality Pet: Amber. Regardless of how they treat your candy, it can't be denied that they are REALLY good friends for Amber. Their nicest moments have to do with helping her no matter what.
  • Put on a Bus: As of episode 36, Charlotte has transferred to another school, likely as a result of you and your boyfriend threatening her.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Amber.
    • Though after Charlotte leaves, Li seems to be arguing with Amber more and more and seems in general more fed up with her than ever.

The first friendly girl you meet and your first friend. Iris is a ditzy but kind girl who always manages to cheer you up whenever Amber's words get you down. She has a younger brother who plays guitar and she has quite a few guitar skills herself.

  • Book Dumb: She's not a very good student, especially in History and Math, but she tries.
  • Break the Cutie: In episodes 34 and 35.
  • Demoted to Extra: Believe it or not, she used to be the one your candy went to whenever she had a problem.
    • Subverted later on. She becomes more prominent again around episode 32, and episode 34 is all about her. After that she still receives more appearances.
  • Disappeared Dad: Her parents are divorced, and she and her brother live with their mom. Judging by the fact that he doesn't bother to show up to the play like the rest of the parents, it can be assumed he's not really in the picture. According to Word of God, Iris has such a close relationship with her mother that she feels no need to visit her father.
  • The Ditz
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Sided with Debrah.
  • Odd Friendship: She gets along really well with Castiel, and the two are hinted to be close. During Episode 9, he's standoffish to your Candy, and will refuse to do activities like swimming if she suggests it. However, when Iris suggests doing the same activity, he agrees and actually plays together with her. She also noticeably doesn't treat Castiel like a rebel or a bad boy as how he's projected, and legitimately thinks of him as her friend, and doesn't seem to notice he treats people differently to her.
    Iris: Try asking him nicely! He's friendly!

The second friendly girl you meet. This white-haired beauty is a fellow classmate and the loving girlfriend of the clothes shop owner Leigh. She is an energetic girl with a mischievous side to her. But she can't stand injustice and will never choose a side without finding out all the facts (something she is really good at doing). She is close to Lysander in a sisterly way and even if your candy steals Leigh from her, she does have her back.

  • The Ace: Beautiful, talented, and the go-to-girl when you need help whether that help be getting a picture of a guy you like or revenge schemes.
  • Art Evolution: Check out the difference.
  • Berserk Button: Well she really, really likes her boyfriend Leigh you know? So flirting with him? Not a good idea...
  • Big Eater: During Episode 28, she orders a rib steak, fries and blue cheese sauce. This is in contrast to her boyfriend, Leigh, who only eats a salad.
  • Chekhov's Skill: Episode 16 her sneaky skills really come in handy for you. She actually proves she's better than Peggy at getting information.
  • Crash-Into Hello: How you meet her.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Notably averted. Rosalya is the only girl on your side after what Debrah did (Amber is on her own side). And not only that, she comes up with your revenge plan.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Let it be known that Rosalya takes her work as a fashion designer very seriously.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: She is quite hotheaded and has no issue at all sharing her opinion when angered, whatever it may be. To be fair, she cools down just as fast.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Calls out Castiel for not knowing what Lysander's parents look like despite being Lysander's best friend only for Castiel to call her out for dating Leigh and still not knowing what their parents look like.
  • Informed Attractiveness: Judging by your candy's thoughts, Rosalya is the most beautiful girl in school.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Is the energetic girl to both Lysander AND Leigh. Moreso Lysander though because he appears more.
  • Spoiled Brat: In the play arc she is hired to make the costumes and ends up spending WAY over-budget. She and her mother outright state that, that is a common occurrence. She also can be a bit demanding and childish when it comes to her work. However she doesn't mean to be and when her behavior is pointed out she'll quickly apologize and make-up for it.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Not her, but she appeals to these types of girls. She used to take pictures of guys while they were unaware and sell them to girls who liked them.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Stealing Leigh away in episode 6 gets you a stern talking to in episode 7.

The next girl you meet. Peggy is a reporter for the school newspaper and it's easy to see why she got the job. She'll do anything to get the next greatest story and will constantly bother you (and everyone else) for the juicy details. Though not a bad person, Peggy does have a tendency to let her job blind her from doing what's right. Ultimately though, she's pretty harmless.

  • Aesop Amnesia: In the same episode no less! So much for learning to get ALL the facts before jumping to conclusions and not just relying on what she's overheard.
  • Break the Haughty: In an epic manner, Peggy learns the consequences of snooping around.
  • Foil: Both she and your candy are nosy and like to get involved in other people's business. The difference is that your candy genuinely believes she's doing the right thing and helping the people involved, while Peggy doesn't really care how her own snooping affects people (at least, not until Character Development sets in.)
  • Brutal Honesty: She doesn't mince words that's for sure.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Most of the students have a distaste for her and her nosy, reporter tendencies. But that doesn't mean they want to see her upset. They also have a pretty good understanding of how passionate she is about her job which is why a group of you work together to to convince her not to quit.
  • Freudian Excuse: Subverted. Related to the above, it's very clear that Peggy wasn't close to anyone in the school before you came along and your candy even notes that Peggy must be feeling lonely since she's left out of many events. However to hear Peggy tell it, she is who she is and so she cared more about her journalism than making friends. It isn't until your candy starts actively being nice to her that she realizes it's better to have friends than to be alone all the time.
  • Heroic BSoD: Briefly goes through one in the beginning of episode 18. The heroic part may be argued for she claims her problem was the fact that her journalistic integrity was put into doubt and not the fact that she wrote a mean article about your candy. goes through an even bigger one in episode 25. To the point where she actually quits being a journalist.
  • Hair Color Dissonance: Her black hair looks more purple.
  • Kick the Dog: Even if she doesn't actually cause any trouble, she WILL step on some toes if it means getting a great headliner. Notably shows some glee at the thought of Nathaniel getting in trouble in episode 5 which cost her an invite to Melody's slumber party in episode 7.
    • Happens once again in Episode 16. After overhearing and misinterpreting an interaction between Debrah and candy, she writes a mean article about your candy and publishes it without even trying to get all of the facts first. To make things worse, she is also eager to get your candy to read said article (and your candy does point out how rude she's being). When the truth comes out, this particular action causes said Heroic BSoD above.
    • Depending on who you ask, in Episode 29, her snapping pictures of Melody to represent the vice of envy without her consent can be seen as this.
  • It's All About Me: Even when she does do nice things there is a pretty selfish motivation behind it.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She cares more about having a story rather than what the story is. But she's not totally a bad person and after her character development you start seeing her kinder side.
  • Never My Fault: Initially she blamed all of her Kick the Dog moments on her victims; typically by saying they shouldn't have done 'so-and-so' in the first place if they didn't want her to write about it. But after the Debrah debacle, it appears she has finally learned to take responsibility...For writing false articles at least.
  • Not So Different: With your candy. According to her your candy is actually worse. Both like to snoop around.
  • Pet the Dog: In episode 32, she goes with your candy to comfort Capucine and even promises not to write an article about Capucine's boyfriend!
  • Secret Keeper: The only one who knows what the 'big thing' the staff has planned for the school...or so she claims. Subverted when it turns out that she knew nothing and only pretended to have knowledge for the sake of her reputation.
  • School Newspaper Newshound
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Thanks to The Power of Friendship (somewhat), Peggy is noticably much nicer and more considerate in the latest episodes. this is best exemplified by her refusal to write about Capucine's boyfriend when she saw how upset the girl was whereas before, she wouldn't have cared at all what Capucine thought.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Episodes 17 to 25 is just nothing but bad luck for Peggy.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: She quite bluntly tells your candy what she thinks of her when she asks for Peggy's help to read Nathaniel's school file.

A delegate for her class, Melody can usually be found in the student council room or anywhere where Nathaniel is. She's a nice, smart girl who is friendly to your candy from the moment they meet, even inviting you to her slumber party. However one thing that is also notable about her is that she very, very, very much likes Nathaniel. And even though she's already been rejected it appears she still hold hope that one day he'll return her feelings.

  • Berserker Tears: If you choose Nathaniel, when you tell her that the two of you are dating she angrily denies that it's true all the while tears are in her eyes.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: To almost Yandere like levels. She starts off by becoming incredibly passive-aggressive almost every time she sees you near Nathaniel before becoming almost delusional. For example, as noted below, she makes wild accusations that are plainly not true if it means convincing herself you are not right for Nathaniel. Reaches its boiling point if you choose Nathaniel and she finds out you two are dating. She absolutely refuses to believe it's true at first.
  • Dogged Nice Girl: She is like the girl!Kentin to Nathaniel. She'll do anything for him even though it doesn't really earn her any brownie points. It doesn't help that he has her convinced that he's not looking for a girlfriend (and this is a dating game so do the math).
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Takes Debrah's side.
  • Hopeless Suitor: To date Nathaniel has not shown any interest whatsoever in Melody (beyond friendship at least). And if you are going for Nathaniel this becomes even more obvious.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Most of the time she's a very sweet girl, but if she gets the vaguest hint of you showing interest in Nathaniel, she grows very distant and cold (at one point even accusing your candy of being just like Amber, despite the fact that that's plainly not true.) Once she finds out you and Nathaniel are officially dating, she first refuses to believe it's true and screams at you, then even after accepting it is noticeably short to you.

A punkish girl who hates math, hates her language, and is easily annoyed when things don't go right. Still she's a friendly, dependable girl who comes through when you need her. She appears to live an exciting life outside of school that your candy is curious about, but she can't stand drama and prefers to stay out of it. Kim is the most easygoing and laidback of all the characters but make her mad and she can whip out some pretty sharp insults.

A shy, purple-haired artsy girl. Violette is pretty quiet and mostly keeps to herself in the garden. It is clear that she suffers from low-self-esteem or at the very least some insecurity issues. However she is nice and the more she talks to your candy, the more she comes out of her shell. She is very talented in drawing and sewing and almost always carries around an art board. She also always brings a stuffed animal to school, something she's not very proud of.

  • Ambiguous Disorder: She's painfully shy and nervous, and has very low self confidence. It seems like she suffers social anxiety and possibly depression, but this is never stated.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: When Capucine badmouths your Candy in front of her by saying she's holding her back, Violette's response is to shout at Capucine that your Candy is her friend. Candy even notes that she's surprised at Violette's reaction, though is also touched.
  • Character Development: She gets out of her shell more the more your candy interacts with her.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Takes Debrah's side.
  • Meaningful Name: Aside from the fact that she's incredibly shy, she's also pretty fond of the color (even her hair is violet!)
  • Missing Mom: Her mother died a few months before you met Violette. This is implied to have made her even more withdrawn than she was before.
  • Odd Friendship: With Kim.
  • Security Blanket: She has a stuffed animal she carries around with her for this reason.
  • Shrinking Violet: It's in her name!

Not the nicest girl you'll come across. Capucine is an Amber fan through and through and will hate on your candy just as Amber does. Though she isn't nearly as ruthless as her idol (though that is NOT for lack of trying) she's still doing everything she can to replicate your relationship with Amber.

  • Dub Name Change: Called Karla in the Spanish version.
    • Also in the brazillian version, where she's named Bia.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Being mainly just a hanger-on to Amber, she's not really close to the large group of friends consisting of your classmates (sans Amber's group), but she still hangs out with them.
  • Hidden Depths: She's actually very knowledgeable about art. Also, she is the only girl at the high school, besides your candy and Rosalya, to be in a committed relationship.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: This is the main reason she acts like such a jerk. Really, she wants to be liked, but she doesn't know how to do this and goes about it the completely wrong way, imitating Amber (though it's questionable if Amber really is that popular, since no one at the school besides her friends really seem fond of her.)
  • Jerkass
  • Smug Snake: She tries, but she isn't NEARLY as bad as Amber or even Debrah. Your candy doesn't even bother getting upset when she runs into Capucine and at worst just brushes her off.

A middle-schooler who is the self-proclaimed number 1 Lysander fan. She LOOOOOOVES Lysander so if he likes you she SOOOOOOOO does not love you. Still Nina is a cheerful and energetic girl who really just wants to help...her idol. She introduces herself to you as Lysandra and even gives you a 'Team Lysander' t-shirt (to match your Team Castiel and Team Nathaniel shirts). You can join her one-person fanclub for Lysander and stay or she can kick you out if Lysander doesn't let her hug him.

  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She really likes Lysander and really doesn't like Candy if she believes there's anything between the two of them.
  • Cute and Psycho: Is genuinely cute and mostly upbeat and happy. But if you like Lysander and he likes you back, then a much more scary side of her comes out. Her angry design strikes fear into the heart of your candy.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita
  • Expy: With her Gothic Lolita style, blonde hair in pigtails, obsession with one man (and while she's not a singer, he is), cheery and upbeat personality with a terrifying temper, and tragic background involving her parents, Nina can easily bring to mind Misa Amane from Death Note.
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Hopeless Suitor: Even when Lysander doesn't like you that much he still doesn't take Nina's interest in him seriously. He assumes she'll just grow out of it.
  • Multicolored Hair: Her hair has pink ombre, probably in an attempt to mimic Lysander's hair.
  • Precocious Crush: Not too bad. She's in middle school crushing on a high schooler.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Of Lysander. But he doesn't seem to mind.
  • This Means War!: Literally says the words if you hug up on Lysander in episode 17.

An interesting (to say the least) person met in episode 14 but fully introduced in episode 15. She is Castiel's ex-girlfriend who came back for a visit, but it is clear she has some ulterior motives. She used to go to Sweet Amoris before you showed up. As a result, everyone thinks she's their best friend and she certainly acts the part. However beneath the sweet and innocent act lies a true...

  • Attention Whore
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Say what you want about Amber at least she is upfront about her true feelings.
  • Bait the Dog: Debrah offers a lot of good things. Help with school work, compliments and confidence boosters, etc. Then she offers Castiel a position in her band as a guitarist...only to have Rosalya heavily imply (and in episode 17 Debrah herself confirms) that it's only because she thinks Castiel will let her have all of the spotlight. If you think that's bad wait until you see what she offered Nathaniel.
  • Break the Haughty: Had to happen given the type of game this is.
  • Crocodile Tears: She is very good at this.
  • Hoist By Her Own Petard: Several things lead to her downfall. 1) Pissing off the student body president. 2) Her fame-hungry nature. And 3) She just HAS to brag to your candy about what's she's done and later on her true intentions. The second time she starts bragging said student body president comes into play.
  • Manipulative Bitch: She tells you the story of her horrendous deeds because she knows you can't do anything about it. She has almost everyone in the school wrapped around her finger and the few who actually know how she really is are in the same boat as you. And yes. She rubs this fact in your face.
  • Slut-Shaming: The game itself does this to her.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Zigzagged. In the beginning Melody, Iris, and even Castiel praised her singing talents. However when she made it big her sales didn't do so well and it's heavily implied that the true music talent in her band belonged to Castiel. This is why her manager was okay with dropping her when she said she thinks she found a better deal.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Called "Deborah" in the American English version, and simply "Debbie" in the British English version.
  • Your Cheating Heart: Flirted with Nathaniel while she was still with Castiel. Also did this to her bandmates.
  • Villain Ball: What ultimately leads to her downfall. If she just kept her trap shut...
  • Villain with Good Publicity

An friend from your candy's old school. Lucy is sweet, pretty, and appears to be very popular with the boys. Not that she's complaining. You meet her at the mall doing what she does best—scoping the field for a new boyfriend. At first she sets her sights on Dake but when your candy makes the mistake of telling Lucy about the boys from Sweet Amoris, and Lucy visits with some very nice results, it becomes clear that Sweet Amoris will be getting a new student soon.

  • Aborted Arc: Subverted. A couple of scenes in episodes 19 and 20 imply that she's going to transfer to Sweet Amoris soon. However she disappears for several episodes afterwards, leading many to believe her role in the story was taken by Priya instead. She then reappears in episodes 29 and 30, and you talk to her on the phone in the next few episodes several times, in ways that imply some conflict involving her. She finally appears again in episode 37, where she tells you her parents have divorced and she's upset because her mother keeps bringing home different men. Though she tells you she's solved the conflict within the episode, it seems she's got her own involvement in the plot.
  • The Casanova: Rare female version and her most prominent character trait to date. When you meet her she rattles off a list of boys who she dated once Candy left and assumes a week of being single is a tragedy. She also sneaks into your school to flirt with every guy you know.
  • Drama Queen: When it comes to her love life at least. Even if she never gets with the guy (who she JUST met), Lucy will moan and groan about having a broken heart and how tragic it is that a great and powerful love ended so soon. She'll immediately cheer up once she sees another cute, single guy.
  • Dub Name Change: Her original French name is Laeti.
  • Foil: To your candy and possibly Rosalya. Unlike Rosalya, who has settled into a long-term relationship with Leigh, and Candy, who either cannot decide which boy to like or is too shy to approach the one she does, Lucy goes through boys like they're this year's birthday gifts.
  • Genius Ditz: She knows how to talk to boys and given her long dating history her tactic has been working extremely well for her.
  • Hair Color Dissonance: Her hair is black but is coloured in dark blue shades.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Her teasing of Kentin, mainly because he still has somewhat fragile self esteem which isn't immediately evident.
  • Kick the Dog: Her teasing Kentin in episode 20 comes across as mean-spirited. So much so that even your Candy is appalled and scolds her afterwards. Lucy promises to apologize for it.
  • Love at First Sight: She falls in love with every cute guy she sees.
  • Nice Girl: She actually genuinely gets along well with your Candy. In fact if you tell her you like Dake she'll immediately back off...Of course if you ask Kentin he'll tell a different story.
  • Wingding Eyes: The shines in her eyes turn into hearts when she sees a cute boy.

How well does it match the trope?
