Tearjerker / The House in Fata Morgana

Go To

The House In Fata Morgana and its prequel are massive tearjerkers. Michel, the protagonist of the series, is basically the personification of one.

A Requiem For Innocence

  • Jacopo's hard and fast fall from an All-Loving Hero to a tyrant. The stresses of ruling and betrayals by former friends cause him to snap and become not much better than the original Barnier, becoming the Jacopo we see in the main game.
  • Jacopo finally gets around to making his Love Confession to Morgana shortly before she dies, but she is too far gone to acknowledge it. To make it worse, he delivers it in the middle of her telling him how much she hates him.
  • Maria's fate in both timelines. It's no wonder Morgana feels guilty upon meeting her in the backstage of the first game.
  • Imeon/Noemi's story. Her life was very similar to Michel's, both being former nobles driven from their homes due to circumstances outside of their control. Just as she begins to crack the barrier Michel has built up around himself, she dies from her illness and leaves him alone once again.

How well does it match the trope?
