Character Tropes!

Post by Reinbach on Wed Feb 11, 2009 12:30 am

I've found the greatest website recently. It's called TV Tropes. It's a wiki that catalogs all of the different storytelling and characterization elements used in media today. Tropes aren't really cliches, because they're not always bad. They're just there. I thought it would be a cool idea to start up a thread dedicated to discussing our characters in terms of tropes. It's a great way of evaluating your character and seeing what elements work for them, what they can use, and what to avoid. It might also be funny to list tropes that describe other people's characters to see what their perception of them is.

Reinbach is a Street Urchin turned Lovable Rogue and Rebellious Spirit with delusions of being a Magnificent Bastard. These tropes are often played straight but sometimes subverted when when he shows signs of being childish or his rash actions affect others negatively. He is on a To Be A Master mission with the Corsairs.

As for other characters...

Xenedra is a total Bottle Fairy and CPM's Genki Girl.

Psylight is THE Yandere. She's also the Girl With A Psycho Weapon

Muirnin is the Club President for the Cooking Guild. Her inability to perform traditional magic makes her a Badass Normal.

Sabriel is a Kuudere and recent Mama Bear.

Valkyr is The Keet on a To Be A Master mission for Magic.

Ayvaen is a text book case of The Fettered. Also he is a Defector From Decadence.

A lot of those seem really quite accurate. Good find, Barky. Bravo! ^_^

"Yandere", huh? ... It should have been called Xille. So says I.

Guess I'll give this a shot. It might not be entirely objective, but what the heck.

Kiyoumi is The Quiet One who became a Blue Mage not long after visiting Aht Urghan. By the way, she sometimes drinks for the wrong reason.
