Belles Fleurs Academy is home to a number of unique and colourful individuals, much like the flowers in the Grand Garden.


    open/close all folders 

Students

    In General 
  • Cast Full of Gay: None of these girls are straight, or are toeing the line so closely they may as well be. Nanami and Mio have a very intimately close friendship that could be easily interpreted as a secret romantic relationship; Yurika and Juri are all-but stated to be intimately, sexually involved with one another, though possibly not exclusively; and though Hinata unwittingly attracts the fancy of most of her classmates, Berune and Mei are more often than not trying to fight for her exclusive attention, and both their inner thoughts and word choice make it clear it's not as Hinata's best friend.
  • Flower Motifs: Every character has a flower associated with them, which both shows up during their Skill Blooms, and is the underwear set reward for completing their personal dungeon.
  • Leitmotif: Using the "Mic" item in a dungeon will override the BGM with the user's character theme, along with giving perfect accuracy for the rest of that floor.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Of the entire line-up, only Hinata and Berune have somewhat realistic hair colours.

    Hinata Akatsuki 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hinata_akatsuki.png
Voiced by: Saki Ono

  • All-Loving Hero: Hinata just wants everyone to be happy, human or plant, no matter what they've done. One of her skills even references this.
  • The Chosen One: Turns out to be the wielder of the legendary Omega Power technique, "Excalibust."
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Is the main protagonist, and evidently prefers swords in all her skill art.
  • In-Universe Nickname: "Hina" or "Hinachi", usually used by Berune.
  • Flower Motifs: Sunflowers/Safras, as befitting her optimism and cheerfulness.
  • Genki Girl: She's very energetic, cheerful, and optimistic. Berune shares much the same disposition, which is why they're such good friends.
  • Leitmotif: "Let's Go, Jump!"
  • New Transfer Student: The very first in Belles Fleurs Academy's entire history.
  • Oblivious to Love: Possibly because of her role as a good-natured, optimistic, somewhat dimwitted protagonist/leader character, Hina never realizes all the girl's hearts she's accidentally winning over, chief among which are Berune's and Mei's. It might also help that she's a new transfer student, and is just being exposed to the lives of the absurdly rich just now.
  • Penny Among Diamonds: Her being the only commoner among an entire school of girls born with silver spoons in their mouths is a frequent subject of out-of-dungeon events, and one of the reasons Juri initially suspects her of destroying the Grand Garden in the first place.
  • Scholarship Student: Implied to be how she's in Belles Fleurs in the first place.
  • Sunny Sunflower Disposition: She is just as sunny, bright, and warm as her associated flower.
  • The Leader: It's openly stated several times that the other students do or eventually come to respect her as the leader of the mission to revive the Grand Garden, because of her determination, her unflagging positivity, and/or the immense power she is capable of. Likewise, in spite of the fact that you can control any of the girls you've unlocked, cutscenes always assume Hinata is the one being controlled.
  • Weapon of Choice: Skill art shows her with a sword, specifically the Omega Sword.
    Berune Orenji 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/berune_orenji.png
Voiced by: Riko Koike
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Has shades of this. She is very childish in her behaviour, her special "meal" is questionably so (though it can surprisingly heal all manner of illnesses), and even her skills involve confusing the enemy. Her solo dungeon does show that she is aware and bothered about this, however.
  • Critical Hit Class: Many of her skills and passive abilities rely on enhancing critical hits, giving numerous perks that come with finishing off enemies with them, and even providing lucky failsafes in case tragedy befalls your party.
  • In-Universe Nickname: "Bell", usually used by herself or Hinata.
  • Foil: To Mei. Both act childishly, but while Berune is sunny and carefree, Mei is dark and overly serious.
  • Genki Girl: Very sunny, cheerful, and playful. Hinata is of a similar disposition, which is why they're such good friends.
  • Leitmotif: "Hurry Up! Curiosity Beckons You ☆"
  • Lethal Chef: Zig-zagged. While her eponymous "meal" is a gigantic, horrific jumble of every ingredient, flavour, and spice that Berune could get her hands-on, it was still edible enough to be consumed by Juri, and even cured her and anyone else of whatever illnesses might be plaguing them.
  • The Rival: To Mei, over Hinata's heart, not that Hinata notices.
  • Weapon of Choice: Skill art shows her with magic spell books.
    Mei Kurosaki 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mei_kurosaki.png
Voiced by: Shiori Izawa
  • Chuunibyou: She frequently speaks in Purple Prose with a husky, serious tone; is apparently of "the blood of the High King;" and claims that there is a terrible power hidden inside her right hand, which is why she always wears a glove over it. (Though she does develop supernatural powers, so does everyone else, through the same means.) The act frequently shatters to bits when Berune accidentally embarrasses her, she's terrified, or aroused (especially in Full Bloom Mode, where this is the point).
  • Custom Uniform: Wears a much shorter cut vest than a full jacket, plus a corset, and a black, fingerless glove on her right hand, ostensibly to seal the "dark powers" in there.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Even before she gains actual dark powers instead of her narcissistic fantasies, Mei has always been on the side of justice.
  • Foil: To Berune. Both act childishly, but while Mei is dark and overly serious, Berune is sunny and carefree.
  • Leitmotif: "Open Your Heart"
  • Power Is Sexy: She goes from unambiguous, severe hostility towards Hinata to swearing her life (and heart) to her, after witnessing Hinata unleash the power of the secret technique Excalibust.
  • Purple Prose: As part of her main character trait, she oftentimes speaks in overly formal and poetic language—at least when in-character. A prime example of this is how, after she swears undying loyalty to Hinata, she always refers to her with the "-sama" honorific if she's not referring to her as "Master", or "My Liege" in the English localization.
  • The Rival: To Berune, over Hinata's heart, not that Hinata notices.
  • Unknown Rival: Before she is recruited after Hinata discovers her ability to use the Excalibust technique, Mei constantly tries to one-up Hinata and defeat the monsters of the dungeon first, and doesn't hesitate to comment on their rivalry—except Hinata has no idea what she's talking about.
  • Weapon of Choice: Skill art shows her with a Sinister Scythe.
    Mio Aiba 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mio_aiba.png
Voiced by: Rena Maeda
  • Adorkable: Outwardly, she is aloof, withdrawn, and of very few words to anyone. Inside, she is probably gushing like a young child over her plants, which she has named, and given personalities to.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: She has near-crippling social anxiety, which leaves people to assume she's a cool, silent loner, when actually she just can't figure out the right thing to say and is too afraid of offending someone to try. But, she willingly and enthusiastically chats with and personifies flowers—sometimes to unhealthy degrees, when she gets into a spat with "Vert," her favourite—and keeps long, highly detailed diaries about their daily activities and growth.
  • Bow and Sword, in Accord: While all of her skills tend towards long-ranged combat (she gains bonus damage the father away she is), she still starts out with naturally high Strength and HP, which makes her an excellent tank as well.
  • Last-Name Basis: Even to her "BFF" Nanami, she refers to everyone by their last names, with the honorific "-san."
  • Leitmotif: "Sparkling Veil"
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With Nanami. While the game is otherwise completely unashamed to tell you that yes, Yurika's interest in women is largely, openly sexual — she and Juri are very physically intimate and everyone knows it — and that Mei and Berune are both fighting for Hinata's heart, these two are much more ambiguous, the both of them referring to each other as extremely close friends. Whether this is because of complications of their respective backgrounds, or Mio's Ambiguous Disorder remains to be seen.
  • She's Got Legs: Noticeably does not wear stockings or socks like the rest, and doesn't have a very conservatively cut skirt, either.
  • Statuesque Stunner: One of the tallest (and bustiest) members of the cast, and certainly no slouch in the looks department, either.
  • Theme Naming: All her active skills are named after plants, and except for "Charged Pineapple", are also the names she gave them.
  • Weapon of Choice: Skill art shows her with a bow.
    Nanami Ginjo 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nanami_ginjo.png
Voiced by: Rika Tachibana
  • Attack Reflector: Part of her skills is to reflect all incoming physical and magical damage back to her and her partner's attackers. She also has a passive skill that may let her counterattack upon hit.
  • The Chains of Commanding: While she puts up a regal, refined, and collected face to the others, inside, Nanami oftentimes complains about how tiring it is to constantly keep up appearances, and has her own insecurities about herself, her abilities, and her body. Her personal dungeon explores how terrified she is of seeming less than perfect, though her friends thankfully accept her as she is.
  • Class Representative: Is the one for Hinatas' class. She is a much friendlier, approachable, and kind version of the trope, acting much like a gentle older sister figure for the younger students.
  • Custom Uniform: As class representative. Her jacket is a noticeably lighter shade of blue-grey, and she has pink ruffles tucked into her blouse.
  • Does Not Like Spam: She trembles and stammers at the prospect of being forced to drink black coffee, so as to not look ungrateful. This extends to other bitter drinks.
  • In-Universe Nickname: "Mimi", usually used by Berune or Hinata.
  • Flower Motifs: Elise flowers, to represent her grace and nobility.
  • Ojou: Heiress of the absurdly rich and large Ginjo Conglomerate. While her wealth is mostly from the family business, she still acts like a traditional lady, being very affable, kind, and going to great pains to keep up appearances. One of her passive skills is even called "Noblesse Oblige."
  • Leitmotif: "Oh Graceful Flower"
  • Magic Knight: She excels in magic damage, and there are many melee weapons that help her deal it up close. Her skills also emphasize utility (having a chance not to set off traps), defense (damage reflection, as a chance or as a limited time buff for all incoming attacks), and supporting herself and her teammates (by sharing healing and buffs she receives).
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With Mio. While the game is otherwise completely unashamed to tell you that yes, Yurika's interest in women is largely, openly sexual — she and Juri are very physically intimate and everyone knows it — and that Mei and Berune are both fighting for Hinata's heart, these two are much more ambiguous, the both of them referring to each other as extremely close friends. Whether this is because of complications of their respective backgrounds, or Mio's Ambiguous Disorder remains to be seen.
  • Theme Naming: All of her active skills are themed after royalty and nobility: Noble's Whip, Royal Reflector, Empress Judgment, and finally, Queen's Gaze. Some of her passive skills are similarly themed, Noblesse Oblige especially.
  • Weapon of Choice: Skill art shows her with a saber.

    Juri Minesei 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/juri_minase.png
Voiced by: Nozomi Yamamoto
  • Big Eater: Shockingly enough, she has the biggest appetite out of all the cast, and in-game, her packed lunch increases maximum belly size to stuff even more food. Like everything else about her, however, she is extremely careful and meticulous about what she eats. She states that her constant practice and promotion burns all the extra calories.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: For the first half of the game, Juri acts very kind and sweet to most everyone, but is actually deeply bitter, cynical, and vengeful, especially when she is the first to accuse Hinata of destroying the Grand Garden, and the last to believe her innocence. Fortunately she gets some much-needed Character Development, though this is mostly her toning down her snarkiness and keeping it inside more.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She's very, very, very fond of Yurika, and gets incredibly angry and jealous whenever it seems like someone is stealing her attention from Juri, or Yurika is getting a little too intimate with girls other than Juri. This can be seen during Yurika's lunch unlock, where she hand-feeds Hinata, and both Berune and Juri get extremely jealous at the prospect of losing their respective crushes.
  • Confusion Fu: Juri's skills specialize in debuffs, controlling enemies, and personal survival. She's highly technical and complicated, compared to the much more straightforward skills of the rest of the cast, but in the right hands she can really shine.
  • Control Freak: She is very careful and meticulous about the public image she shows to most everyone, and during the cutscene where you acquire her recipe, she internally lashes out at Hina for even suggesting that she will eat anything so long as it looks good.
  • Custom Uniform: Her jacket is teal instead of blue-gray, she has white stripes in her ribbon, and flower accessories in her sleeves, among others. She apparently wears it during performances, too.
  • Foil: To Yurika. Juri acts sweet, kind, and childish, as a front to maintain her public image and achieve her dream of becoming a famous idol. Meanwhile, Yurika is calm, mature, and honest, proudly stating she has nothing to hide.
  • Gameplay and Story Integration: Juri is incredibly selfish, self-centered, and a conniving schemer if you wrong her, or she believes you've wronged her. Once she is playable, her skill set is highly focused on debuffs, crowd control, and personal buffs that are useless or outright endanger partners, if you chose to take them with you.
  • Leitmotif: "Chance for an Encore ♡". In-universe, it is her debut song.
  • Idol Singer: Is one for Belles Fleurs.
  • It's All About Me: It's openly stated by the game that she's incredibly narcissistic, such as the time she casually steals the lunch Berune made to... mixed results.
  • Official Couple: With Yurika. It's implied they're not monogamous, but Juri shows no distress at that.
  • Weapon of Choice: Skill art shows her with a magic broom.
    Yurika Murasaki 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yurika_murasaki.png
Voiced by: Kaori Mizuhashi
  • Ethical Slut: Though she is very open and physically intimate with many of her classmates, going so far as to kiss Hinata (on the cheek) during their first ever meeting, she does not harass them, is genuinely respectful and polite to them, and believes strongly that her partners are not playthings for her pleasure—that just wouldn't be fun for anyone. Her shadow self representing her inner doubts and personal issues attempts to subvert this, to no avail.
  • Foil: To Juri. Yurika is very mature, calm, and honest, proudly stating she has nothing to hide from the others in her personal dungeon. Meanwhile, Juri's pleasant personality is mostly a front for the sake of PR.
  • Impossibly-Low Neckline: Wears her blouse open and does not wear a tie around her neck like the others, exposing her rather impressive cleavage for all the world to see.
  • In-Universe Nickname: "Yuri", usually used by Berune or Hinata. It's the Japanese word for lilies, referencing the flower motif of the game. Very fittingly, it's also slang for lesbian pairings in media.
  • Flower Motifs: Japanese Lilies, representing her grace and beauty, and also her being the most open lesbian of the cast.
  • Leitmotif: "Secret Flower Garden"
  • The Medic: Of the entire cast, she has the most purely support/healing skills, doing little in the way of direct damage, but much in the way of getting rid of debuffs, giving buffs, and otherwise assisting your partners. She also has passives specifically for making exploring the randomly generated dungeons easier, and earn more Omega Power and thus, experience.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Blatantly so. Busty? Check. Mature, developed figure? Check. A propensity towards flaunting her sexuality and having numerous unambiguous intimate interactions with the rest of the cast? Check.
  • Official Couple: With Juri. It's implied they're not monogamous, but Juri shows no distress at that.
  • Screw Yourself: Does this with her shadow self after defeating her at the end of her personal dungeon.
  • Statuesque Stunner: The tallest member of the playable cast, with Mio at second. Her long, shapely legs and mature figure are oftentimes emphasized for fanservice.
  • Theme Naming: All of her skills are named after the perfumes she produces from the Grand Garden.
  • Weapon of Choice: Skill art shows her with tridents.

Staff

Director Rinka Kuon

  • Older Than They Look: Is visibly a foot or so shorter than the rest of the teenaged cast, but is old enough to be running a massive, prestigious all-girls school, and an established Omega Power researcher, at that.
  • Vague Age: No one knows her true age, and she's certainly keen on avoiding the subject. Many conversations imply she's somewhere around 100 years old or more, due to the sheer volume and dates of the research she gives Hinata.

Momo & Yuyu Kuon

  • Meido: Wears this as their uniforms, Momo embodying the completely subservient (and masochistic) archetype, Yuyu the strict and sadistic archetype.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Momo is friendly and mild, Yuyu is hostile and very caustic. The roses on their skirts are also coloured blue and red, respectively.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: Momo shivers and gets visibly excited at the prospect of being punished by Yuyu, overworked, or hurt. In one conversation with Hinata, she even says that if she really wanted to hurt people, she could have just easily taken it out on Momo.
  • Twincest: The game is not very subtle about the exact depth of their relationship.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Ironically for a woman that spends most of her time landscaping and gardening, Yuyu hates bugs, and has to rely on Momo to remove them from her person.

Fairies

Nem

Voiced by: Arisa Noto
  • Butt-Monkey: The frequent victim of Director Rinka's more... questionable uses of Omega Power, being a fairy and thus a sentient, convenient supply of it. Many of the cutscenes involving the introduction of the crafting system leave her feeling violated afterward.
  • Leitmotif: "Dearest..."

Pai

Voiced by: Emi Uema
  • Callback: Is forcibly transferred over from Anberyl Academy of the first two games, and serves as a guide and portable source of Omega Power once more.
  • Fishing for Sole: A hobby of hers and a useful game mechanic for players. From time to time, she will somehow fish-up equipment you've lost from dying in the dungeon.
  • Leitmotif: "Fairy Girl" (Omega Labyrinth Life) and "Pai's Wonderland!" (Omega Labyrinth Z)

Plants

Flora, the Holy Blossom

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/flora_2.png
  • All-Loving Hero: Much like Hinata, strongly believes in happiness for both humans and plants.
  • Big Good: Unsurprisingly, for a personification of life energy, Flora is key to fighting the Big Bad and eventually, the Bigger Bad.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: In her adult, "Bloomed" form, she has long, golden blonde hair, and retains her kind, gentle, all-loving personality.

Zephyr, Glacia, and Ignia

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/omega_labyrinth_life_9_5.jpg
  • Chromatic Arrangement: Green for Zephyr, Blue for Glacia, Red for Ignia
  • Palette Swap: Justified. They are explicitly separate manifestations/clones of Flora, though they can be differentiated by their eyes and behaviour, also.

    Antagonists (Unmarked Spoilers) 

Alraune (formerly Blue Rose)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/omega_labyrinth_life_6.jpg
  • Alas, Poor Villain: She was a rose that happened to bloom in the Holy Caves beneath the school, where there was no sunlight, fresh air, or people to see her. All she wanted to do was to live the life every flower does, then the Witch of Desires gets her hands on her...
  • Big Bad: Initially.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Heavily implied in her first boss fight. She used to be a simple, nameless Blue Rose, until some unknown corruption from the Omega Power turned her into the genocidal maniac she is now. Eventually it's revealed that the Witch of Desire was responsible.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Willingly lets herself be destroyed by Flora's holy power, if it means that the Witch of Desire is driven off and the others are safe.
  • Kill All Humans: One of her main goals, aside from becoming the effective ruler of all flowers.
  • Meaningful Rename: After being killed once, and being reborn as a seed, she is renamed "Lumienne."
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: All she wanted was to be a normal flower above ground, until the Witch of Desire hears her plea and decides to turn her into an all-powerful monster.

The Witch of Desire

  • Bigger Bad: Aside from creating Alraune, she was also responsible for the monsters of the dungeon in the first place, taking the wishes and desires of inanimate objects, humans, and plants alike, before twisting them into horrible monsters and the worst interpretations possible.
  • Fan Disservice: Like the rest of the cast, she is extremely well-endowed. However, everything else about her, and especially her carnivorous-plant inspired lower half is... less than arousing to most people.
  • Jackass Genie: Her MO. She expresses great delight in twisting innocent wishes and desires to the most macabre and cruel interprations possible, oftentimes transforming the wisher into a form of monster.
