Not shown: Deaduard

Legion of Hetalians is a Hetalia AU Tumblr-based roleplaying environment set in a large mansion in the mysterious 51st State - oh, and they all have superpowers.

Residents come from all over the world, from celebrities to business people to (generally) normal everyday citizens. The 4 paths are based around the standard archetypes for characters seen in popular fiction - Heroes, Villains, Anti-Heroes, and Neutrals.


Legion of Hetalians provides examples of:

  • Abusive Parents: Allen's father was abusive to him and his brother their whole lives, which lead to him being an asshole to the Legionnaires when he first arrived.
  • Action Hero: Alfred Flynn Jones (APH America) fights crime and saves lives every day. He is often absent from the Legion mansion as a result.
  • A-Cup Angst: The fact that Yekaterina has the physical appearance of a 10-year-old boy is a touchy subject, so be careful what you say.
  • Affably Evil: Despite his lack of morality and offensively cavalier attitude, Soo is still charming and outwardly chipper as ever.
  • Archer Archetype: Tomos is an ace who can hit any target you want. Need a classic Robin Hood backup? He's your man.
  • Badass Armfold: Alfred folds his arms quite a bit when angered, mostly to intimidate the other party.
  • Advertisement:
  • Badass Crew: Despite their differences, nearly every member of the Legion comes together when teamwork is needed to keep members safe from harm.
  • Biblical Motifs: Fawziyya has super strength, Levantine origins, and sees herself as a liberator - hell, even her alias is the Arabic version of the name 'Samson'.
  • The Big Damn Kiss: Instead of delivering an eloquent speech like he planned, Soo fumbles through a nonsensical speech before taking a cereal bowl from Vas and kissing her.
  • Big Eater: Alfred. Have you ever seen a man consume so many burgers?
  • Boomerang Bigot: Allen's stated how he's strongly opposed to the LGBT+ community... until he falls in love with another man. He's been slowly working on his bigoted view.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Ieva has her hair cut into a fluff pixie, to a point where one of her male friends with benefits has hair longer than hers.
  • Brother–Sister Team: Ieva and her older brother Aras work together on various heroic nonsense.
  • Combat Pragmatist: As an antihero, Tomos isn't averse to playing dirty to win a game. If he can manipulate something to his advantage, he'll do it without a moment's notice.
  • Cool Teacher: As the youngest teacher at Kennedy Prep High, Tomos has cemented himself as one of the most popular teachers on campus, whether he's teaching his AP Psychology class or coaching the varsity rugby team.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Soo's anger stems from the brutal death of his parents, exacerbated by the emotional, mental, and physical abuse he endured during his time in a governmental training facility.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Every once in a while Tomos'll make a witty quip with a completely straight face, as he's a big fan of one-liners.
  • Fiery Redhead: Often commented upon by her boyfriend, the correlation between Saoirse's strong personality and her red hair is certainly something that hasn't gone amiss.
  • Hopeless with Tech: Anneliese is old enough that radios and televisions are something she can't hope to operate. Even a car is a bit horrifying when she thinks about it.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: With Soo at 6'1", and Vas at 5'0", there's over a foot of height difference between the two.
  • Icon of Rebellion: Subverted - Fawziyya wants nothing to do with the various organisations in her homeland, instead choosing to work alone to her own rules and agendas.
  • Important Haircut: Ieva's hair came off at thirteen, a symbol of rebellion and pushing against oppression.
  • Lady of War: Sofia's fighting style is graceful and deliberate. She's highly skilled in deadly combat, and sees it both as a science and an art form.
  • Legendary Weapon: Whenever Sofia fights, she always brings her shield Aegis.
  • Life Drinker: Anneliese's powers allow her to obtain immortality through the consumption of 'life force', which is stolen from her victims. Subsequently, she absorbs this into herself.
  • Like an Old Married Couple: Soo and Vas have been traipsing around the globe together for over three years now. They bicker, buy groceries, and fold laundry together. Disgustingly domestic.
  • Losing Is Worse Than Death: Katya takes her sport and its competitions very seriously, growing greatly distressed if she doesn't perform as well as she expects from herself.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Devious, charismatic and audacious, Soo is ruthless and often schmoozes for his own benefit. Through blackmail and intimidation, he currently "influences" several world governments and major corporations.
  • A Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Read: Tomos is stuck with hearing everyone's thoughts, whether he likes it or not. Unfortunately for Tomos, most of the time he definitely does not.
  • Mistaken for Romance: After Jon visited Tomos during lunch at school, his students began to speculate about their relationship status. Since then, his purported love life has become a riveting sitcom for his students, who currently cannot decide whether he is dating Jon, Dmitri, or Erzsébet, or if he's just a player.
  • Nerves of Steel: When danger comes, Sofia doesn't bat an eyelash. She's been through too much to be phased by much now.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: As an Olympian, Athena can only be killed by a direct blow to the heart, as all the rest of her body heals at a superhuman rate, or by taking her own life. In her lifetime, she has only been near to death once.
  • Oblivious to Love: In the good 2 years they knew each other before her recent departure, Tomos somehow never fully realised the extent of Victoriana's attraction to him.
  • Old Man Marrying a Child: Married at 12, Anneliese's husband was approximately 15 years her senior. It was deemed acceptable at her age, despite thoughts today.
  • Parental Abandonment:
    • A mob viciously attacked Soo's parents for their political views during a protest, badly injuring both parents. His father died from a bullet wound in the hospital and his mother lost cognitive abilities due to trauma and shock, leaving her in a vegetative state, essentially orphaning Soo.
    • Tomos' father left his family when Tomos was 13, unable to deal with the revelation that his son was a superhuman "freak". This has led to strife in Tomos's life, especially as he grapples with the fact that his father has essentially disowned him for his superpowers.
  • Proper Lady: A woman of class, Anneliese is fond of fine silks and fine wines. She also maintains herself as a level-headed individual who is capable of minding both herself and others. Nevertheless, she has no patience for being bothered.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Actually, Sofia's more like 3500 years old and likes to think of herself as still a cool grandma. Talk about looking good for your age.
  • Religion of Evil: The people in the hidden village Anneliese Dittmar presides over see her as some sort of a goddess. There's quite a good degree of human sacrifice that takes place as a result.
  • The Revolution Will Not Be Civilized: A part of the Romani community in Vilnius, Ieva is a firsthand witness to unfair treatment. Subsequently, she and others have lashed out against politicians and other officials in acts of superhuman violence.
  • Supernaturally Young Parent: Anneliese's son Alfred looks about thirty, while Anneliese herself looks about 25 or so.
  • Super Team: They're a ragtag bunch of superhumans living together in a mansion. C'mon, man.
  • True Art Is Angsty: Ieva's an artist through and through, preferring to focus on the heavy topics that are relevant to the people in her home. invoked
  • Useless Without Powers: With limited physical strength, Katya heavily relies on her firebird mimicry to aid her in combat situations.
