    In General 

In General

  • Cast Full of Crazy: Considering that they have to murder everyone in the Library in order to fulfill their wish, it's a requirement. They're all deranged in their own ways. Special mention to Red Riding Hood for being associated with "Violence" itself.
  • Classified Information: Most if not all of the characters' concept art that's shared on the internet has some blacked out text.
  • Color Character: Snow White, symbolizing her purity with the connotation of emptiness, and Red Riding Hood, symbolizing her spirited and violent nature.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Briar Rose, Pinocchio and Red Riding Hood.
  • Cute and Psycho: They're all illustrated to be cute thanks to the character designer Jino, and madness breaks loose in any story authored by Yoko Taro.
  • Dark Action Girl: Some of them have a dark color scheme in accordance with their darker nature.
  • Darker and Edgier: No one kills anyone in their original stories. Though it can be a bit zigzagged depending on whether you're considering the modern version or the historical versions of some of the fairy tales, since the historical versions can be quite dark as well.
  • Dysfunction Junction: Every single character is insane in some way.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Variation. Each of the characters' Half-Nightmare jobs have one eye covered or obscured in some way. The only exception is Alice's second version.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: The Library world's lore labeled these characters "Characters".
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: The Half-Nightmare jobs give them these accordingly to each of their respective eye colors.
  • Gotta Kill Them All: Each character is going to have to kill all the others eventually, in order to collect enough Inochi to fulfill their wishes.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal: They can freely switch any weapons mid-battle.
  • It's Personal: Their motivations in reviving their authors all stem from their personal desires.
    • It's All About Me: Most, if not all, of the characters' wishes are considerably selfish and only serve their own personal goals, despite what could've been if their story didn't follow what their Authors has written.
  • Job System: All jobs have a unique outfit and lore behind them for each of the girls.
  • Kimono Fanservice: New Year-exclusive jobs give the Characters kimono outfits. So far, it's only limited to Alice, Cinderella, Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Kaguya Hime and Aladdin.
  • Lack of Empathy: Many of the Characters demonstrate an inability to understand the emotions of others outside of the context of their own emotions and intentions. This is particularly prominent in crossover chapters, as characters will blatantly disregard the responses and desires of others in order to further pursue whatever personal goal. Maybe it's that they just don't care.
  • Little Miss Badass: Red Riding Hood, Briar Rose, Little Mermaid and Gretel.
  • Multi-Melee Master: Breaker, Crusher, Paladin and Gunner jobs allow the girls to wield swords, greatswords, katanas, hammers, spears, gun and bow all at the same time.
  • Musical Assassin: The Minstrel job has each character use a musical instrument for a weapon.
  • Squishy Wizard: Cleric, Sorcerer and Minstrel jobs only allow the girls to wield tome, staff, flute, violin and harp kinds of weapons at the same time.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: The Half-Nightmare job classes are basically these, to make things even worse as if being more violent than the original fairy tales wasn't enough.
    • Emphasis on the superpowered part since players are required to grind in the Grand Colosseum, which is limited to advanced players only, to redeem them via medals.
  • Stripperiffic: Every character (except Red Riding Hood and Nutcracker) have at least one job which exposes more skin than the rest of their jobs.
  • Theme Naming: Each character has one weapon per job titled with the name of their respective concepts; Alice's Restriction, Snow White's Justice, Briar Rose's Slumber, Cinderella's Depravity, etc.
    • Their Reality version weapons are all named as "Will of" followed by their concepts(example: Will of Violence, Will of Delusion).
  • Weapon of Choice: The characters are normally pictured as a certain job, with their weapons being based on said job.
    • Their Reality versions also have a weapon on their own, which is based on their Inochi.

    Alice 

Alice

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sinoalice.png

"Even if you break my right arm… or sever my left arm… even then, I won’t give up."
Voiced by: Mao Ichimichi

The titular girl from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, Alice seems to feel immense grief and denial over her Author's death and wishes to resurrect him, even if it means they'll never meet or that he'll hate her. Her Concept is "Bondage".


  • Above Good and Evil: It's implied that her motives are based more in intuition than morality, and that she believes that her actions aren't good or evil.
  • Alice Allusion: A more literal example. She is the character of Alice.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: A short-haired, dark blue haired girl who refuses to be distracted from her goal.
  • Ambiguously Human: A meta variant. Although Alice is a character in Lewis Carroll's story, her Inner Monologue and lore feature more of her relationship with her Author than the Wonderland itself. This indicates that she may or may not be the actual Alice Liddell, a young girl who Lewis befriended during his life.
  • Bare Your Midriff / Underboobs: Her Sorcerer outfit probably has the bare minimum of clothing by far.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Her Reality Arc persona is hinted to have such a relationship with her sensei.
  • BFS / Katanas Are Better: Her Breaker job main hand is designed based on katana.
  • Creepy Child: Her Paladin job lore stated that she rambles incoherently in the middle of the night and she frightened the nurses.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Her Half-Nightmare job lore tells of Alice's anxiety over her wish not coming true, and her despair twisting her determination to fight into mindlessly killing everyone, including her Author and herself in the end.
  • Determinator: No matter how many things she has to kill, how much it hurts, even if she'll never meet her Author again in the end, she won't give up.
  • Driven to Suicide: The reason why she wants to jump in the Reality Arc is because her sensei has left her.
  • Emotion Suppression: Her Minstrel weapon lore states that Alice resolved to discard her emotion in order to fight for the sake of her Author's resurrection.
  • Emotionless Girl: A sacrifice made to elevate her determination.
  • Feel No Pain: Alice stated that she feels no pain, because she knows that her wish to meet with her Author is cursed. This however gets averted as she become adept in combat and pain proves that she's both alive and sane.
  • Hair Decorations: She wears a blue hairband, with two long ribbons of flames. It borders on Animal-Eared Headband, being a reference to the White Rabbit's ears.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Her normal art and Reality Arc depicts her wielding a sword.
  • Headphones Equal Isolation: Her Reality version uses one. In the live action CM, Reality version Alice is walking to the edge of a building, ignoring her surroundings, very likely planning to jump.
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: Alice's attachment and relationship with her Author is hinted to be motivated by this according to her Sorcerer weapon lore.
  • I Owe You My Life: This is Alice's reason to keep on fighting for her Author. She'll do anything for his sake since she's alive because of him.
  • Joshikousei: Her Reality version outfit is this with glowing wings and a glowing BFS.
  • Mayfly–December Romance: Alice's feelings toward her Author are hinted to be this in her Sorcerer job lore.
    • Her Half-Nightmare spear lore has a metaphorical story of a man and a woman in an affair, where the woman knew of the man's dishonesty yet she chose to deceive herself to please both of them. Left with nothing of what made her special, she clung to the man for dear life.
    • Her Reality Arc basically confirms this, as both stories allude to her relation with her sensei.
  • Meido: Jino commented that Alice's main job Breaker is designed with the idea of a maid-samurai combination.
  • Never Grew Up: Alice's Sorcerer main hand lore states the reason why her Author put restraints on her is because he feared the thought of seeing her grow into an adult.
  • No Name Given: Alice's Reality Arc persona is never named, and in the manga whenever other characters call her by name it is blanked out with Alice simply written on top.
  • Not So Different: Similar to Snow White. While Alice herself wants to revive her Author due to personal feelings, they've both placed faith in their creators and feel that the Authors deserve the fulfillment of living and being alive.
  • Power Gives You Wings: Her Reality version gives her these.
  • The Promise: The Tome of Restriction lore states that she made numerous promises with her Author even though she's aware that he broke them. Yet she still keeps making more promises, otherwise she won't have a place in his heart.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning / Supernatural Gold Eyes: Either, depending on her character portrait and maybe the lighting. Played straight with her Half-Nightmare job.
  • The Stoic: Described as "a silent blade", signifying her concept.
  • Teen Pregnancy: Due to her relationship with her sensei, which causes him to leave her.
  • Undying Loyalty: Her ultimate reason to keep butchering Nightmares.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A for the most part, though it changes between job classes. Her stockings are sometimes also mismatched.

    Briar Rose 

Briar Rose

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sinoalice_6.png

"Haah… I’ll revive my Author after I… take a nap…"
Voiced by: Kaede Hondo

The Sleeping Beauty who isn't happy that the Prince woke her up. So much so that she only wants to resurrect her author to have him build a world where she can be asleep forever. Her Concept is "Languor".


  • Berserk Button: She really hates being woken up and is more than happy to give a death penalty to anyone who does so.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Despite being one of the most peaceful members of the cast, she will not hold back if you dare get in the way of her nap. The prince learned it the hard way, and even Gishi and Anki are frightened.
  • Children Are a Waste: Relating to her unwanted marriage in her Paladin job lore, Briar Rose gave birth to two children and considered giving them to either a white wolf, a witch or a monster. They eventually got devoured by her husband's mother.
  • Expy: She shares common points with Bedman. Both are young children related to the theme of sleep and fight with the help of a Mini-Mecha.
  • Flower Motifs: Her name and her Gunner job design puts emphasis on the roses.
  • The Hedge of Thorns: The prominent element of her designs as a part of her name and a reference to the forest of thorns that surrounded Sleeping Beauty's castle to prevent the princes from reaching her. It's also the thing that keeps her standing while sleeping.
  • Ill Girl: Her Reality job has her hospitalized. Her job story reveals that she had been comatose for a while.
  • Lazy Bum: Her quotes say it all; she has her own motivations yet is also too sleepy to take any action. It takes Red Riding Hood to keep her awake out of fear of being killed while she's asleep.
  • Lotus-Eater Machine: Basically what she wants her Author to convert her story into. Her dreams are so much more fun and free from the troubles that come from being awake, her bed so soft and comfortable, that she doesn't want to return to reality ever again.
  • Lyrical Dissonance: Her Breaker main hand lore has her lullaby for her children containing her thoughts to whom she'll give them up.
  • Motivated By Fear: During her cross story with Red Riding Hood, it's the first time Briar Rose keeps awake because Red Riding Hood outright tells her that she'll give Briar Rose an eternal slumber in case she falls asleep again.
  • Powers Do the Fighting: The shadowy briers she's always lying in are what do the fighting for her, so she can continue sleeping.
  • Power Floats: Her Sorcerer job artwork invokes this.
  • Shout-Out: Her Paladin job lore reference Sun, Moon, and Talia, which is considered another version of Sleeping Beauty, in mentioning her having two children while still under the curse.
  • Sleepy Head: Exaggerated. The only thing she wants to do is sleep so much that she's unhappy with the prince and her children, wanting to have nothing to do with them as her sole motivation and final goal in killing Nightmares.
  • This Is a Drill: Her Paladin job design has her thorns wield a pair drill-like thorn lances.
  • Unwanted Spouse: According to her Paladin job lore, she's married to the prince and it's questionable on how they met or if she's truly happy with him waking her up in the first place.

    Cinderella 

Cinderella

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sinoalice_68.png

"Rubbing salt in people’s wounds is such fun."
Voiced by: Eri Kitamura

Cinderella isn't content with how her story went. There's more that she could've done. She wishes to revive her author so that he'll rewrite her story and crown her king. Her Concept is "Depravity".


  • Ambiguously Brown: While the story of Cinderella is known to be set in France, Cinderella's skin color here is to signify her name's meaning, ashen.
  • Bare Your Midriff: All of her job designs do this to a degree, except for Kimono.
  • Being Tortured Makes You Evil: To put it simply, this is the story where Cinderella decided to get revenge for all of her life's miseries rather than just enduring until she got her happy ending.
  • The Caligula: What she wants her author to rewrite her as.
  • Dual Wielding: Her Breaker job mainhand.
  • Expy: Of Yoko Taro's other brass, violent and foul-mouthed heroines, Kainé and Zero.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Some of her job designs give this.
  • Foil: To Snow White. Concept-wise, she is the depraved one against Snow White's righteous justice. The contrast extends to their respective color themes, with Cinderella being the ashen lady whereas Snow White is referred to as the white lady.
  • Guns Akimbo: Her Gunner job mainhand.
  • Hospital Hottie: Her appearance as the Cleric.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Her Minstrel mainhand is a... tuba minigun.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: After the abuse she went through in her story and how "pitiful" she is, Cinderella feels that she is beyond saving and that her heart will never heal. But she'll make everyone else hurt so much worse, since why should she be the only one to endure the pain?
    • She also likes to gloat about how a lowly, dirty servant girl like her managed to woo the Prince and become the envy of everyone. The game even implies that she left behind her glass slipper on purpose just to have the Prince chase after her.
  • Kick the Dog: Finds great joy and amusement in inflicting pain to others. Taken literally in one of her weapon stories where she shot a hound that was following her around since she killed its parents.
  • More Dakka: Oh yes, to a ridiculous level. As a Minstrel, she has a minigun and she has gun hammers as a Crusher.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Her bangs cover the right side of her face.
  • Pretty in Mink: Her Reality job has her decked in a rather luxurious fur coat.
  • Puppet Permutation: Her Half-Nightmare job has her transformed into some sort of puppet that is chained up and missing its midsection.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes past her hips. Averted with her Reality version, whose hair is short.
  • Revenge: She killed her stepmother and stepsisters for what they did to her, in a way that was "much too terrifying to speak of."
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Inverted; she's very much not this, instead being a sadistic vengeance seeker.
  • Sadist: Justified. She relishes in the pain of others as a way of relieving her own pain, which stems from the abuse she suffered from her step-family.
  • Slasher Smile: She gives this in every job illustration, save for Minstrel where her mouth is covered. Unless she does so underneath.
  • Swiss Army Weapon: Her Crusher mainhand is a gattling-hammer-gun.
  • Yakuza: Her Reality job story implies that Cinderella has connections to them, or at least, is part of them.

    Gretel 

Gretel

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sinoalice_4.png

"Look, Hansel… look at me… look only at me…"
Voiced by: Maaya Uchida

Hansel and Gretel have met with a terrible fate. Now Gretel is off to revive her author, with only her brother's head in a cage to accompany her. She doesn't really care about the author and is only going on her quest because Hansel told her to. Her Concept is "Delusion".


  • Becoming the Mask: In order to cope up with the death of his sister, Hansel took upon her identity.
  • Believing Their Own Lies: Gretel insists that her brother is alive, even though the head she's carrying is a big giveaway for everyone who sees it. She is, however, aware that he doesn't talk.
  • Berserk Button: While Gretel mainly keeps what's on her mind to herself, poking around her brother is a sure way to trigger her violent urges caused by her traumatic memories.
  • Blade on a Stick: Her Reality Arc job mainhand.
  • Broken Bird: Traumatized by the disappearance of Hansel, Gretel has turned into an Empty Shell obsessed about her brother.
  • Creepy Crossdresser: Gretel's Cleric job lore notes that she is identified as the incorrect sex.
  • Cross Player: In Reality Arc, Gretel is her game persona.
  • Driven to Suicide: How she died in Reality Arc.
  • Empty Eyes: Cinderella, while thinking about bullying Gretel for fun, realizes just how broken Gretel is by looking at her eyes.
  • Foreshadowing: Gretel's voice, while creepy, actually sounds more close to a male than a female. Book two, Chapter three of Gretel's story reveals that the Gretel the player knew is actually Hansel and the disembodied severed head is Gretel's.
  • Freak Out!: Like her Berserk Button, Gretel doesn't take things well when her brother's safety is compromised, often blaming herself for everything bad that's happened to him, including killing him.
  • Hikikomori: Her Reality Arc persona.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Gretel will quite often muse on the concept of eating her brother, calling him "very sweet". She even offers to let him do the same to her.
  • Imaginary Friend: Her Cleric job lore has medical notes on her having a fictitious sibling, a product of her mind.
  • Institutional Apparel: For her Half-Nightmare job she is bound in a heavily stylized straitjacket. Fitting given the Superpowered Evil Side nature of the Half-Nightmare job.
  • It's All My Fault / Guilt Complex: Gretel blames herself for what happened to her beloved brother, something that was foreshadowed in her Crusher job lore where Hansel blamed himself and promised to save his sister after hearing their parents' plan to abandon them, and often wonders if her brother won't ever forgive her.
  • Loss of Identity: Gretel's traumatic past left her psyche damaged enough to actually deny her own true identity in order to escape her past.
  • Madness Mantra: Her Gunner job lore is basically spelling out her obsession with her brother, her feelings for him and everything that has brought misery for the both of them. The actual text is... madly long. And if one looks at the text closely, one can notice that Gretel slips at one point, mentioning "sister" and "kill" instead of "brother" and "love".
  • Mirthless Laughter: Gretel laughs when she eventually becomes aware that she's already broken because she's not Gretel but Hansel himself in the third chapter of Hatred arc.
  • My Sibling Will Live Through Me: In order to cope with the death of Gretel, and perhaps the fact that he may have been responsible, Hansel impersonates his sister.
  • Self-Made Orphan: As far as she can recall, Gretel killed her parents for the sake of her brother.
  • Self-Serving Memory: Upon awakening in the Library, Gretel initially can't really recall what happened to her and isn't aware of who she is. As she proceeds, she only remembers that she has her brother with her and they've been having a lot of fun together. This turns out to be her own version of how things happened, produced from her denial, her feelings for her brother and her hatred for their parents.
  • Sibling Incest: Gretel is reeeaaally attentive to Hansel. While most of her monologues are quite mild about her feelings, her Sorcerer job lore just all but outright says it.
  • Split Personality: 'Gretel' is actually a personality created by Hansel in order to escape his traumatic memories.
  • Sweet Tooth: Gretel enjoys sweets with her brother, including her brother himself as she describes it.
  • Talkative Loon: She talks only to her brother's head, if Gishi and Anki aren't around giving information, and will not talk to anyone until they start to take her brother into the topic for any purpose.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: The person is Hansel. Gretel's head is in the cage. And Hansel might've been the one who killed Gretel, along with their parents.
  • Yandere: Gretel won't let anyone separate her from Hansel. Not even her own parents or Hansel himself.

    Kaguya 

Kaguya

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sinoalice_60.png

"To suffer at the hands of a strong person is my ideal."
Voiced by: Shizuka Ito

The Bamboo Princess from the Japanese folktale The Tale Of The Bamboo Cutter. Kaguya dislikes being pampered like the princess everyone sees her as. It's her belief that a princess should serve the people, not the other way around. She wants to be tormented by someone stronger than her, and who else is stronger but her author? Her Concept is "Masochism".


  • All Men Are Perverts: Many of the men who came to court her would look at her lustfully, something Kaguya enjoyed since she yearns to be dominated by a man stronger than her.
  • Apologetic Attacker: She feels bad for killing the Nightmares and even sheds a few tears, but it's only because they don't put up a good enough fight to actually hurt her.
  • Blindfolded Vision: For her Minstrel job she dons a blindfold.
  • Boobs of Steel: She probably has the largest bust size of the cast, along with Dorothy.
  • Covert Pervert: Kaguya developed a masochistic streak as a result of her being raised by an old couple and detachment of any kind of relationships outside her family. At its peak, Kaguya only came to realize this tendency when she became aware of the lords' lustful gazes upon her.
  • Cursed with Awesome: Her Paladin job lore tells us that her existence is a blessing to her parents yet she terrifies other people.
  • Does Not Know Her Own Strength: She never realized how strong she actually is, as she had never wielded a weapon before she goes to resurrect her Author. Due to that, she usually ends up killing Nightmares that she thought would be able to hurt her, much to her chagrin.
  • Doomed Protagonist: As her Sorcerer job lore states, for her to be born into the unclean earth, Kaguya is doomed to come in contact with worldly desires.
  • Heel Realization: During the first arc, she realizes the Nightmares are too weak to fulfill her wish, leading to her realizing that her Author is the only one who can. With this comes the realization that she's not as innocent as she initially thought and that she's going to have to kill everyone to fulfill her wish.
  • I Should Have Been Better: She regretted not choosing any of the lords who proposed to her and imagined how wonderful it would have been to suffer at their hands, as she never wishes to return to the moon.
  • Impossibly-Low Neckline: Her top shows off quite a bit of her cleavage and her shoulders.
  • In Love with Love: Kaguya later resolved to endure all forms of pain to learn about love, for the world is filled with pain that is "love". She likes the idea of being in a relationship more for the sake of fulfilling her masochistic tendencies rather than actually wanting to be with someone, possibly because she thinks that being hurt means being loved.
  • Kimono Is Traditional / Pimped-Out Dress: Her Paladin design reflects on her being the only character from a Japanese 'fairytale'.
  • Little Black Dress: Wears a pretty revealing one in Reality Arc.
  • Naginata Are Feminine: Sports one with flat edge and skeletal ornamented.
  • Necromancer: Her Sorcerer job's lore and design reflect on this.
    • Her Cleric weapon story has her dabbling in necromancy, in hopes of finding someone who was able to hurt her. She didn’t succeed.
  • Pretty in Mink: Kaguya's dress in her Paladin and Cleric jobs sport a lion head decoration at the back, the mane becoming the fur design around her neckline.
  • Skeletons in the Coat Closet: Many of her job portraits incorporate bones and/or skulls into her clothes and weapons.
  • Stronger Than They Look: Kaguya wishes and expects to be defeated and violated by the Nightmares but as she begins to adapt in battle, she finds out that her body is strong and her mind is unshaken.
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: She refuses to be called a pervert, despite her masochistic tendencies.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: Taken to a pretty far extreme. She enjoys pain too much, to the point that it defines her desire to resurrect the Author. She even actively tries to find someone who will torment her during her quest, whatever that is.
    • Her desire branches from physical pain to mental pain, and later comes to associates love with pain itself.
  • Too Much Alike: With Pinocchio. They both want someone else to control them and are indecisive, so much of their crossover story is them asking "I don't know, what do you want to do?" back and forth.
  • True Blue Femininity: Jino commented that Kaguya is designed as an Oiran, a Japanese courtesan.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Submissive, demure and certainly not a pushover, but that last bit is what Kaguya's upset about. She wants to be an Extreme Doormat.

    Little Mermaid 

Little Mermaid

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sinoalice_9.png

"I will teach you the value of tears."
Voiced by: Mamiko Noto

The heroine of Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid, a tragic story about a star-crossed love. Little Mermaid believes that the greater the sorrow, the greater the story will shine. So to make her story even more beautiful, she wants to resurrect her author so that he'll rewrite the story to be even sadder. Her Concept is "Sorrow".


  • All Love Is Unrequited: She loved the prince so much that she even dared to make a Deal with the Devil so she could be with him. Too bad the prince didn't even remember who saved him and got married to another woman. This extends to her Reality Arc self who is in an adulterous relationship with a coworker. The man won her over by pitying her but was in fact only interested in having a younger misstress more than anything.
  • Body to Jewel: She cries pearls.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: All of her outfits leave her barefooted. Averted in her Reality version in the third book.
  • Doomed Protagonist: Little Mermaid exchanged her voice in order to become human and win the prince's heart, knowing that her life is at stake if the prince doesn't love her back. Unfortunately for her, the prince didn't even remember her, dooming her to fail.
  • The Eeyore: Almost always crying and finds her situations (in-story and in the Library) to be incredibly sad. But it's still not depressing enough for her.
  • Extreme Doormat: Her office lady persona in the Reality Arc. Many men come after her due to her meek personality, not that she minds since for her it is simply a means for her to survive and fuel her sorrow addiction.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Little Mermaid didn't take it well when she found out that the prince had forgotten her, the one who saved his life.
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Has a Type: Prefers older men since they are easier to seduce into oppressing her whereas younger men make her resent her age.
  • In Love with Love: Her heart has become so broken that she associates her feelings of love with how much it hurts to be in love. So her pining for the prince is less actually wanting to be with him and more wanting to suffer, since being hurt makes her love shine brighter.
  • It's All About Me: During her crossover with Red Riding Hood in the Reality Arc, she left the heavily wounded girl to her own fate because the Little Mermaid felt she was much more pitiful than the young assassin.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Her Paladin job lore features a series of investigation records detailing how the current queen married to her once-prince now-king ruined the kingdom and his people lamented if only the current queen had NOT been the one saving the king back then.
  • Making a Splash: Many of her weapons use water in some way, or she manipulates water to use the weapons. It's implied she may be using tears.
  • Multicolored Hair: Subverted. It's her fins, actually.
  • Never My Fault: Blames the death of her superior in the Reality Arc on the old man rather than on herself for indulging the man in his asphyxiation fetish during a sex act.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: She saved the prince and exchanged her voice to become human, only to be forgotten and turned into sea foam.
  • Office Lady: In Reality Arc.
  • Our Mermaids Are Different: Her hair has her fins instead of her lower half.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes does past her feet, probably symbolizing her mermaid tail since it looks like she has fins in her hair.
  • Sailor Fuku: Most of her outfits feature a sailor-like design element. Interestingly, her Reality version lacks this feature.
  • Sensual Spandex: Her Sorcerer job ditches her Sailor Fuku inspired clothes in favor of an incredibly form-fitting bodysuit with a longcoat on top.
  • She's Got Legs: The only one with exposed legs in the cast's main artworks.
  • Stepford Smiler: Her Reality Arc persona is an office lady who works at a desk (possibly a secretary); part of her job consists of greeting everyone with a smile, regardless of how she actually feels. This is on top of having an adulterous relationship with one of her married coworkers, who is still wearing his wedding ring, yet she loves him nonetheless and is pressuring him into marrying her. As a result, being able to feel and display sadness is seen as a way for her to express her true self.
  • They Would Cut You Up: Dorothy's interested in her physiology, so naturally the former wants to dissect the latter. Little Mermaid is, obviously, not happy with this.
  • True Blue Femininity: Many of her job outfits has her in blue.
  • Your Cheating Heart: Her Reality Arc persona is often preyed upon by men who met her at her workplace. The man she fell in love with is already married. This very relationship winds up costing her life at the hand of her lover who refused to divorce.

    Pinocchio 

Pinocchio

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sinoalice_64.png

"I’m not too good at deciding things on my own."
Voiced by: Yuko Sanpei

The puppet that came to life from The Adventures of Pinocchio, he's been having a tough time suddenly having free will. He wants to resurrect Carlo Collodi, since the Author is the one who dictates everything that happens in the story, so he'd be the best one to tell Pinocchio what to do. Pinnochio's Concept is "Dependence".


  • Ambiguously Human: Pinocchio is a doll turned human who struggles to make a decision on his own, relying instead on others to give him orders. In Book One Chapter 4, Pinocchio realizes that he doesn't remember becoming a real little boy while his staff exhibits all traits associated to his doll self (foul mouthed, mean, nose growing when lying). Pinocchio's concept art hints at the fact that the staff might be the real Pinocchio.
  • Butt-Monkey: Due to his Extreme Doormat personality, he is often toyed with by people like Cinderella or his own staff. This extends to the collaboration event with Tsuri Star where he becomes the Damsel in Distress at some point, needing Snow White to save him.
  • Disappeared Dad: Geppetto has gone missing, as well as other characters from the story. The Cricket refuses to talk about the puppet to avoid going missing too.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Some of his designs enforce this, particularly his Paladin job. His Reality Arc appearance has him disguise himself up as a girl.
  • Extreme Doormat: He has trouble making decisions on his own, so he wants someone else to decide for him.
  • Living Weapon: His staff, which has a face and its own will, dragging Pinocchio around to get him to kill the nightmares. However, it stop talking when there are other people around.
  • Never My Fault: Pinocchio blames the deaths he's caused on his staff, since it's the one pulling him along. He never wanted to kill anything and he can't do anything by himself.
  • The One Guy: Until the release of Aladdin he was the sole male remember of the cast. A bit downplayed if we count the reveal about Gretel..
  • Too Much Alike: With Kaguya. They both acknowledge that their goals are too similar for them to suit each other's needs but still wish each other luck when they go separate ways.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: A male variant, maybe because he's a young boy.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: His reality arc appearance has him dressed up as quite the convincing girl.

Red Riding Hood

"One, two, three, four… and I can still kill many more…!"
Voiced by: Ayaka Imamura

When Little Red Riding Hood was eaten by the Wolf and saved by the Woodsman, she was disappointed. She had wanted to play with the Wolf some more. She wants to play with her Grandma and the Woodsman too, but if she killed everyone then the story will end and she'd have nothing else to do. So she wants to resurrect her author, to have him continue writing the story so she can keep playing forever. She might even want to kill her author too. Her Concept is "Brutality".


  • Ambiguous Innocence: Red Riding Hood is actually more innocent in perceiving and reacting to events around her when compared to the other characters. This also makes her love of violence even more disturbing since she just does what she likes without any remorse like any child enjoying things that they love.
  • Animal Motif: Wolf, as a design element featured in her Reality and Half-Nightmare version.
  • Blood Knight: Absolutely loves killing and fighting, even when her opponent is a shadowy copy of herself.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Her base weapon is a huge mace like weapon.
  • Cheerful Child: She's the most lively character of the cast while also relishing in violence. Her Reality version, however, doesn't smile.
  • Combat Sadomasochist: To horrifying degrees in her Half-Nightmare job story. Her Half-Nightmare story has Red Riding Hood herself disembowel and hurt herself but she enjoys it all the same.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Some of her job costumes veer into this.
  • Girl with Psycho Weapon: To say the least, any of her job weapons are these in association to her concept. Even the seemingly harmless tome that she wields as a Sorcerer is titled "Tome of Violence", which is a strong indicator for what's written inside.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: She's often on the lookout for new friends to play with during her travels, be they Nightmares or fellow Characters. Unfortunately for them, her idea of playing involves their violent demises, hence her wish for her Author to write her more durable playmates.
  • In the Hood: According to one of her job bios, the people of her town wore red to protect them from the shadows of the forest and the Beast of Night, explaining her red hood.
  • Improbable Weapon User / Shovel Strike: Her Reality version has a shovel as her weapon. Ridiculous? Well according to history, shovels are often used as weapon in WW1 and WW2. It's both effective and handy.
  • Little Dead Riding Hood: Inverted. She's the one who'll do the killing.
  • Little Red Fighting Hood: And does she love it.
  • Living Clothes: Her Sorcerer job outfit shows signs of it with two giant arms coming from her own cloak.
  • Loves the Sound of Screaming: One of her battle quotes is "Scream some more!".
  • Nekomimi: Becomes a glowing one in her Reality version.
  • Nuns Are Spooky: Her purchase-only Cleric job reflects on this.
  • Professional Killer: In Reality Arc, she works as one.
  • Too Many Belts / Chained by Fashion: A lot of her outfits have a lot of belts and/or chains. Special mention goes to all those straps on her red hood.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behaviour: Hoo boy...

    Snow White 

Snow White

"I will live my life with a conscience as clean as the pure driven snow that falls from the sky."
Voiced by: Reina Ueda

On the day of the wedding between the Prince and Snow White her mother, the Evil Queen, was invited. Despite all that the Queen had done, Snow White still forgave her mother. But the Evil Queen repaid this forgiveness by murdering the Prince, driving Snow White to kill her. Since then, Snow White has become a firm believer in punishing evil. She wants to revive her authors due to a personal debt, in that she owes her existence to the Grimm Brothers' lives. Her Concept is "Justice".


  • Abusive Parents: Her mother is the Evil Queen but she wasn't always bad. Her obsession with beauty eventually drove Snow White into running away from home. Snow White even knowingly eats the poisoned apple in hopes that doing so might return the Queen to her kind self. Brutally subverted by the reveal in her Paladin job story. See So Beautiful, It's a Curse.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: She has white hair, whereas in the fairy tale Snow White has ebony hair. Averted with her Reality Arc counterpart who has the same ebony hair as the fairy tale Snow White.
  • Belly Dancer: Her Gunner job looks as if it takes heavy inspiration from a belly dancer aesthetic.
  • Blood-Splattered Wedding Dress: Most of her outfits reflect this. On her wedding day, she was splattered in the blood of the Prince and the Evil Queen.
  • Deadly Doctor: In her Reality Arc she is a nurse, Yukishita Miki, who secretly poisons several patients whom she viewed as criminals and bad people. She ends up killed by Akiyoshi Yura, a possible ancestor of Masayoshi Yura, out of revenge for one of her victims.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: According to the Paladin job story even a maid had impure thoughts about Snow White.
  • Expy: She shares a similar moral pride and white color palette with One.
  • The Hedge of Thorns: Her Half-Nightmare job has this underneath her skirt.
  • I Am the Noun: She stands in her belief that she herself is justice, thus having the authority to bring it.
    • Her Half-Nightmare kob takes her belief and everything that she vowed and declared regarding justice to a whole new level.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: As stated by her quote above, she vowed to live up to her name by enforcing justice and rejecting anything that might corrupt her.
  • Knight Templar: Believes her path to be righteous, so anything that gets in her way has to be evil.
  • Lady of War: All of her designs present her as dignified and elegant. Jino commented on designing her as a Monarch.
  • Never My Fault: Snow White insists on her justice even after killing the bird Nightmare and her children, claiming self-defense and to achieve her goal.
    • Her Minstrel job lore even gives the idea that Snow White herself rarely reflects on her justice and believes that she's just as justice itself.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: She declared that she forgave her mother, who brandished a knife at her at that very moment, only to be protected by the prince, who died in her place. This results in Snow White killing her own mother and her resolve to correct the world.
  • Not So Different: Similar to Alice. While Snow White is doing what she feels is the right and just course of action, they've both placed faith in their creators and feel that the Authors deserve the fulfillment of living and being alive.
  • One Degree of Separation: It's implied that Reality Arc Snow White is working at the same hospital that Reality Arc Briar Rose is hospitalized in.
  • Prim and Proper Bun: Subverted with her Half-Nightmare job where she lets her hair down.
  • Pure Is Not Good: Her pure justice ideal leads to her zealotry.
  • Sinister Scythe: Her Paladin job main hand.
  • So Beautiful, It's a Curse: Played for laughs in her Cleric weapon story where Snow White is introduced to an erotic book about herself. Played straight in her Paladin's job story. Snow White's beauty mesmerized everyone in her country and beyond it. Faced with the threat of a giant blood bath caused by her daughter, the Queen decided to go through with her plan to get rid of Snow White.
  • Something About a Rose: All of her job designs have a rose present in one way or another.
  • The Stoic: Like Alice, but in a more dignified way.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Her Gray Eyes signify her purity and cold demeanor while the black colouring in them reflects the black flames of vengeance flickering within her. Her Half-Nightmare job has her eyes combine the colors of blue and purple.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: With the death of the prince at the hands of her mother, whom she forgave just before the murder, Snow White swore to never again show forgiveness and to correct the world with her justice.
  • Undying Loyalty: She regards her Author(s) as her Master(s) and it's for their sake that she swore her loyalty and to bring justice to them.
  • World's Most Beautiful Woman: In her story, everyone wants her out of love and hate.
  • Would Hurt a Child: When confronted by the children of a Nightmare bird she recently killed, Snow White snapped and proceeded to kill them in the name of her justice.
