RKS001 Eins. The Heroine of the first game. She's a straightforward and honest young lady as well as a training instructor, treated with deep respect and admiration by even the imperial soldiers. She's naive and kind of a klutz and sinks like a brick in water, but at least her fighting instincts are strong and her moral convictions are second to none. Her RKS friends call her "Tia" for short. She's the other reincarnation of Rosenkreuz other than Iris, known as the "Blade of Rosenkreuz", born with the ability that defined him most as an individual: his ability to tap into the strength of his friends.

Her ability is called Seelegewehr, which gathers magical energy from the immediate vicinity and releases it in the form of round magical bullets, which become stronger the more they are charged. They can be used without restraint since they don't tap into her mana supply. She can also copy the abilities of any Magus she defeats and use them in combat, because she has Rosenkreuz's ability to use the powers of others'.


Tropes related with Spiritia

  • Berserk Button: Do not speak of killing Iris in front of her, unless you want her to blast away at you with everything she's got and stop at nothing to keep you from doing it until you make her realize you weren't lying about her by defeating her.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's pretty much a nice girl. But when her friends start a war against the Empire to build their new world and start it all off by burning the forest, she immediately fights to stop them.
  • Calling Your Attacks: She says the names of the weapons she uses when she unleashes them after fully charging them.
  • Cartoon Bomb: When using Zornesbombe.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: In her case, defeating her friends in combat means that she is able to convince them that the rebellion is going to be less than worth it. She ends up being right for different reasons than she initially thought.
  • Determinator: She never gives up, no matter what. And it's all part of her unrivaled sense of justice gig.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita
  • Elemental Baggage: Whenever she uses an elemental weapon outside the stage she got it from (Zornebombe, Klageharnish, Freudenstachel)
  • Hair Decorations: A cross-shaped hairclip, specifically.
  • Expy: Of Mega Man himself, right down to her personality.
  • Green Eyes
  • Hair of Gold
  • The Heart
  • Heroic BSOD: She gets this when Iris attacks and fatally injures her after killing her father and afterwards reveals the whole, terrible truth behind the war. Things calm down a little when Freu comes just in time to save her, and even more so when she reassures her that both #1: she will be alright despite having overdone the room-freezing attack a bit, and #2: she'll release Karl and sort out and take care of every other problem left behind by Iris.
  • The Heroine
  • I Am What I Am: Even if she really were the Blade of Rosenkreuz, Lilli says that she'll always be herself.
  • Idiot Hair
  • Idiot Hero: Not only did she actually trust Iris and take it upon herself to stop the war (by Swiper, No Swiping method no less - though fortunately she's strong enough to fight them if it fails) without knowing that she started it for laughs, her profile even says that she's kind of a klutz and sinks like a brick in water.
    • To be fair, Tia's friends and even Michael (the Magi leader, who starts the whole coup) also don't know that Iris has planned it all. The only one knowing this is Grolla. Iris being "kidnapped" doesn't help.
  • If You Kill Her You Will Be Just Like Her: She's really good at this, seeing how she actually just tells Iris to give up on her reign of terror rather than killing her for the Complete Monster she is after defeating her in the final battle. Of course, Iris retaliates with telling her that she let her guard down and self-destructs her palace in an attempt to kill her. Luckily for Tia, Talos, whom she had freed earlier, saves her, and happily reunites her with her friends.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Even if she was manipulated by Iris, ends up as Right for the Wrong Reasons, gets a Heroic BSOD upon being attacked and fatally hurt by Iris, and refuses to forgive her for having everybody attack each other just for her amusement, Tia is shown to be this since she condemns RKS's rebellion against the Empire and is willing to protect her loved ones without letting anybody be sacrificed, thus refusing to take part in the rebellion itself.
  • Kamehame Hadoken: Her fully-charged Seelegewehr.
  • The Klutz
  • Leitmotif: "AM Fight No. 1" by AM 3 (RKS title theme), "The Ground Which Can Shine" by Silver Chaos (RKS Opening Stage theme), "Vampire Revoluion" by Unlimited Hellest (talk theme), "Fighting Spirits" by Silver Chaos (Boss theme)
  • Light Is Good
  • Oh Crap: Quite often done when she sees that her friends are participating in the war; her expressions in seeing and realizing that are quite priceless.
    • Take this particular set of dialogues for example:
Cquote1.svg

Tia: Trau, not you too!? Why!?
Trau: Oh? What exactly did you take me for? A pacifist? Hardly. I just don't like wasting effort. And that's exactly what you're doing right now, Tia.
Tia: That's not true...!

Cquote2.svg
  • Oh, No, Not Again: Immediately muttered by her as soon as the Imperial Training Hall starts shaking for the second time after Talos flies off with Iris in tow and Lilli follows.
Cquote1.svg

Tia: Not again! The place is under attack!

Cquote2.svg
  • Only Sane Girl
  • Power Dyes Your Hair: Using different weapons from the other RKS members she'd fought will change her hair color corresponding to the hair color of the original user.
  • Power Gives You Wings: She has her Silberflügel "Eins" and Silberflügel "Zwei", both which are abilities to create platforms with wings.
  • Rapunzel Hair: If she didn't wear her hair in a ponytail (her huge one still reaches significantly down her back regardless).
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons: She ends up as this when she finds out that Iris had caused the events of the game to happen for her amusement, instead of her initial assumption that Graf Sepperin was behind it all.
  • Swiper, No Swiping: She does this deal with her friends as well as Graf Sepperin.
  • This Cannot Be!: "I can't believe it...! The Count is even using the forbidden arts!?"
  • This Is Unforgivable!: She and Lilli say two variations of this trope to Iris before they fight her Iris Machine at the end of the third Iris Stage because they blame her for everything she did up to then.
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: She at one point after beating Grolla in the main game after already having defeated Sichte before her, states that she never wanted to kill her in the first place.
    • Then again, she spends her time not killing any of her colleagues after defeating them anyway.
Cquote1.svg

Freu: (about Tia's refusal to kill her) You possess so much power, yet you cannot do something so simple? Are your ideals truly that important to you?
Tia: This has nothing to do with ideals, Freu. I just want to protect the people from RKS as much as I want to protect the people of RKS, that's all...

Cquote2.svg
  • Tomato in the Mirror: Before the Final Boss fight, as Tia confronts Iris, the latter starts laughing. Tia and Lilli thinks she's crazy... before she reveals that Tia is the legendary Rosenkreuz's another incarnation - "the Blade of Rosenkreuz."
Cquote1.svg

Iris: I think I might just start believing in fate now. Ahhh, the feeling of hating another with every fiber of your being... It's such an amazing rush...! Oh, I'm so anxious to rip you apart! What about you? You have the power of the world's finest magician coursing through your veins. How does it feel? Exhilarating? Intoxicating? Exuberant? Or perhaps such a puny vessel can't fully comprehend the magnificence of it all?
Lilli: Tia will always be Tia! So there!

Tia: Thanks, Lilli. I don't really know if I posess Rosenkreuz's spirit... Or if I'm his other incarnation or whatnot... Or if I inherited his ability to tap into the strength of others'... But none of that matters when it comes to magic. Freu... Zorne... Trau... Luste... Grolla... Sichte... Liebea... Schwer... and Lilli... It's because they support me that I have the will to fight. They're the source of my power. That much, I know for sure!

Cquote2.svg
  • Turns Red: Interestingly, when using Grolla's weapon, Grollschwert.
  • Worthy Opponent: Iris amused herself with watching Tia give it her all, thus thinking of her as one.
  • You Have Got to Be Kidding Me!: She says this after Luste, raring to play with her, says, "Game start! I go first!"
  • You're Insane!: She says this to Iris when she starts laughing madly from finding out where she got all her energy.
Cquote1.svg

Lilli: "What's wrong with her?"
Spiritia: "Iris, have you lost your mind!?"

Cquote2.svg


Lilli

Cquote1.svg

"I got it, Tia! Leave it to me!"

Cquote2.svg

Tia's little green Fairy Companion. Lilli's a curious and inquisitive fairy who's interested in learning about humans, Magi, and the outside world. Kind of a mischief maker, she'll also pout whenever things don't go her way. As a great friend to Tia herself, she can always be counted on in times of need.

Finding the Black Forest's Treasure in Trauare's stage allows Tia to use Lilli to attack.


Tropes related with Lilli


Freudia Neuwahl

Cquote1.svg
Cquote2.svg
Cquote1.svg

Voiced by: Sou Raika

Cquote2.svg

RKS002 Zwei. Close friend of Tia in RKS, despite her dislike for being close to others. A lone wolf by nature, she's cool and collected and she prefers to work alone and is capable of getting things done without anyone's assistance thanks to her many talents. Her friends call her "Freu" for short. In the sequel, she's The Heroine.

Her ability is called Freudenstachel, which allows her to gather water vapor and unleash it frozen into icicles, which become sharper in a colder area. She can also implement the abilities of her friends into learnable abilities, three of which she uses in her boss battle.


Tropes related with Freudia

Cquote1.svg

Freudia: "I'm sorry, Tia..."

Cquote2.svg
  • Big Damn Heroes: As she saved Tia from Iris' attack after the latter kills her own father.
  • Bullet Time: Her Weißteufel that she acquires from Sichte.
  • Calling Your Attacks: In Freudenstachel, she calls out the names of both her signature Freudenstachel attack and her learnable abilities.
  • Did You Actually Believe?: "Do you honestly believe you can stand against the entirety of RKS on your own?"
  • Disappointed in You: In the original game, she'll say this to Tia once when Tia responds to her "Did You Actually Believe?" quote above with her resolve to do what she asked her if she thought she could, and again if Tia uses up her last life against her.
  • Doppelganger Attack: Her Freudenzwinger.
  • Hair Decorations: Her big red hair ribbon, which in the sequel can change color depending on the ability she chooses.
  • Expy: To Roll (considering her hairstyle, hair decs and having the same number in their own lines) and Proto Man (considering her personality and her Big Damn Heroes moment above).
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: She's rather fond of these, and they can be acquired in Freudenstachel.
  • Fuuma Shuriken: Her Frostklinge ability, which she learns from Dolis.
  • Good Is Not Nice: She prefers not to be close to others despite her strong relationship with Tia.
  • Heroic Albino
  • Heroic Sacrifice: She makes one to save Tia from being killed by one last attack from Iris, which uses up a bit of her energy. At least the sacrifice isn't fatal.
  • Idiot Hair: Though just like Lilli, she's clearly not an idiot.
  • Instant Ice, Just Add Cold: What happens to the enemies she freezes with her Eisschwert. Subverted, as she doesn't need to drop them in water with ice around it to do so, and they break free of the ice eventually.
  • I Work Alone: One of her main preferences.
  • Kuudere: Cold in the outside and prefers being alone. Warm in the inside, especially when Tia is involved.
  • The Lancer: She's Spiritia's greatest rival and closest friend in RKS.
  • Leitmotif: "Pegasus" by Extra Ocean (RKS stage theme), "07" by AM 3 (Talk theme), "22" by AM 3 (Main/boss theme), "Fate" (RKSF Opening Stage theme)
  • Mega Manning: A variant in the sequel: she doesn't exactly use the powers of the enemies she fought, but she adapts her ice powers to match them.
  • More Dakka: Her main weapon, Freudenstachel, is the only one which can't be charged by Tia when she acquires it - instead, holding the button will make it rapidfire. It also works similarly in the sequel.
  • Only Sane Girl: In Freudenstachel.
  • Opera Gloves
  • Power Floats: She has an ability to levitate in the air.
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Subverted - Even though she does have red eyes, she's actually a nice person who happens to be duty-bound on this war.
  • Shout-Out: One of her Pre Asskicking One Liners was inspired by Mega Man X 4, which had a similar phrase said by one of the bosses.
Cquote1.svg

Freudia: I'll lay you to rest in a cool bed of ice.

Zorne Sepperin

Cquote1.svg

"Don't think I'll go easy on you if you get in Father's way!"

Cquote2.svg
Cquote1.svg

Voiced by: Ayane Suzumura

Cquote2.svg

RKS003 Drei. A short-tempered, impulsive, and moody young wannabe daddy's girl who's quite a pyromaniac and a terrible cook with cooking skills nothing short of disastrous, and she doesn't even know the meaning of the word "restraint". She looks up to Graf Sepperin a lot for saving her life once, and, despite the absence of blood ties, regards him as her real father. And she takes high pride of it. Not to mention, she also refuses to get along with Iris.

Her ability is called Zornesbombe, which allows her to create bombs that explode in a cross-like fashion and can demolish brick walls.


Tropes related with Zorne

  • Berserk Button: She'll go berserk on anyone who calls her a Baka, messes with Father, or even "brainwashes" her friend Trau.
  • The Big Girl: Relative to her position in RKS.
  • Big "Shut Up!": If already having defeated Trau, she would tell Tia, "Shut up *shut up* SHUT UP!!" when Tia desperately tried to talk her into calming down and listening to her.
  • Blue Eyes
  • Butt Monkey: In the first game.
  • Cartoon Bomb: Her Zornesbombe.
  • Combination Attack: With Trau in Freudenstachel.
  • Cry Cute: Gets some tears in her eyes when she's humiliated... in a cute way.
  • Cute Bruiser
  • Expy: If she isn't a Bomberman expy she was at least very heavily inspired by the series.
  • Fiery Redhead
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Green-Eyed Monster: In the first game, some parts of her pre-boss dialogue suggest that she's violently jealous towards Tia because her stepfather liked her for being strong. Zorne wanted to show everybody that she could be the most useful to her adoptive father himself. She blew it, of course.
  • Happily Adopted: By Graf Sepperin.
  • I'll Kill You *I'll kill you* I'LL KILL YOU!!: One of her quotes when she Turns Red.
  • Leitmotif: "SHINING MAN" by Maru no IE (RKS stage theme), "Sinner" by Unlimited Hellest (Talk theme), "Eruption Trigger" by Sound Prison (RKSF stage theme)
  • Lethal Chef: According to her profile, she's a REALLY terrible cook.
  • Mad Bomber
  • Mood Whiplash: She gets bonus points for this as she easily has "Sinner" by Unlimited Hellest as one of the darkest talk themes in the franchise. There's a reason why said talk theme is Darker and Edgier than her stage theme in the original game, "SHINING MAN" by AM 3, after all.
  • Nonstandard Game Over: She urges you to "Hurry Up!" for a reason.
  • Power Fist: She wears an oversized version of the gauntlet like the one worn by the title character in the Prince of Persia remake.
    • A fan-made version of events suggests that this gauntlet a prosthetic arm to make up for the one she lost during an accident in her youth, making it a Disability Superpower. Pretty Badass, when you think about it.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Would likely, if she didn't wear her hair in ponytails.
  • Red Oni: To Trau's blue.
  • Say My Name: (defeat quote) "Oto-samaaaaaaaaa!" ("Fatheeeeerrrrrrrr!")
  • Tempting Fate: She does this before her boss battle.
Cquote1.svg

Zorne: Tia, Father might like you because you're strong... but I'll show you all that I'm the most useful to him!
Zorne: (after getting bested by Tia) Ugh... does this mean I'm completely useless!?

Cquote2.svg
    • Alternatively:
Cquote1.svg

Zorne: I have faith in Father! And I will NOT lose to you!
Zorne: (after getting bested by Tia) Ugh... Why can't I do anything when it really counts!?

Cquote2.svg
  • This Is Unforgivable!: She has this as one of her intro quotes if her friend Trauare has already been defeated, and also says another variation of it to Grolla if she has already defeated Trau.
  • Tomboy: To Trau's Girly Girl:
  • Took a Level in Badass: She's significantly tougher in Freudenstachel than in the first game.
  • Tsundere: She's more exceptionally violent than other examples.
  • Violence Is the Only Option: She doesn't even understand the meaning of "restraint" anyway. Only if she proves to be a Butt Monkey by getting humiliated both physically and emotionally does she tend to listen to reason. Poor thing.
  • You Killed My Father: In the Doujinshi Tearis (a.k.a. Rosenkreuzstilette After-Story) created by Kiora, she blames Iris for making her suffer by killing her father whom she desperately yearned for to accept her as his real daughter and vows to eliminate her.
Cquote1.svg

Zorne: "I... I know what you did to Father... if you think everything will turn out alright if you just supress her power you're wrong..."

Cquote2.svg


Trauare Wrede

"You're better off forgetting what you can't change. Sorry, but this is the end of the line for you!"

Cquote2.svg

RKS004 Vier. She's a composed and pragmatic young lady capable of concealing her immature tendencies, making a point of what needs to be done and finishing whatever's asked of her, but carries a disinterested look on her face the whole time. She's even tougher to control than her friend Zorne when she's angry - she's quite vindictive and will stop at nothing to exact revenge once she's angry, so you wouldn't like her when she is so. She loves to swim and will often invite Zorne to join her at a nearby ravine in her spare time. Her friends call her "Trau" for short and she uses the Chaos Spear Leviathan as her weapon of choice.

Her ability is Klageharnisch, which generates miniature tornadoes of water and can launch them in different directions at once.


Tropes related with Trauare

Cquote1.svg

Trauare: It looks like Zorne was no match for you. I'll have to take this seriously, then.

Cquote2.svg


Luste Teuber

Cquote1.svg

"Let's play Cops n' Robbers! Tia, you're the bad guy!"

Cquote2.svg
Cquote1.svg

Voiced by: Hazumi Homura

Cquote2.svg

RKS005 Funf. RKS's resident Cloudcuckoolander. A Cute Demon Girl who's cheerful, simple-minded and optimistic and always lives in the present. She's easygoing and treats everything like a game, and pictures herself as a hero of justice. She's so attached to Tia that she often plays games with her, with her as the "bad guy". She's nonetheless self-centered and loves tomato juice.

Her ability is Lustatem, which is capable of launching pressurized blades of wind through the air in any direction. She can even launch even bigger ones, especially when she Turns Red.


Tropes related with Luste


Grolla Seyfarth

Cquote1.svg

"There is nothing my blade cannot cut."

Cquote2.svg
Cquote1.svg

Voiced by: Junca Amamoto

Cquote2.svg

RKS006 Sechs. Born with the spirit of a warrior, she's calm, collected, and every bit as strict with her colleagues as she is with herself. She's willing to protect them at any cost - but should her Berserk Button be pushed in any way, she'll stop at nothing to exact revenge. A gifted swords(wo)man, she's feared and respected by many, and is the granddaughter of Raimund Seyfarth, better known as the legendary Thanatos. She prefers to let her blade do the talking over sharing her feelings with others and is a subordinate and bodyguard of Sichte's speaking on a feudal tongue. She may not look like it, but she's actually damn proud of her job. She's The Heroine of her own side-game, Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert.

Her ability is Grollschwert, which utilizes the power of her weapon, the Demon Sword of the same name. Using it as a conduit, she can unleash her inner power in the form of multidirectional slashes. Grollschwert's blade becomes sharper and gets farther reach the closer its user is to death.


Tropes related with Grolla

  • Ancestral Weapon: Her Demon Sword Grollschwert, which has been passed down by the Seyfarth clan for generations.
  • Another Side, Another Story: Completing the game will give you the code to play as her in her own special sidestory, Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert.
  • Anti-Heroine: Type 3. One who prefers to let her sword do the talking. She's the kind of heroine who would rather stain her own hands and blade with blood than give bad people like Iris another chance; almost no one who hits her Berserk Button is wary of pissing her off.
  • Badass Boast: "Master, I am still inexperienced. Before you left us, you told me that the Demon Sword Grollschwert would clear a path for me. Now you are no longer with us... still, I have this sword. As long as I wield it, I shall press onward! I WILL find you, Iris!"
    • Also, to Graf Sepperin: "Then I shall become a demon slayer and crush you where you stand!"
  • Badass Normal: She appears to have less obvious magical abilities but is capable of fighting on par with any of the other Magi in RKS. It really depends on whether her dashes qualify as Super Speed or not.
  • Berserk Button: Pretty much anything ranging from traitors to idiots to Humiliation Congas to anyone who messes with Lady Sichte to anyone who disrupts her grandfather's peaceful slumber can press Grolla's Berserk Button. Pull any of these off on her and you in her words have just signed your own death warrant, and therefore she'll stop at nothing to either bathe Grollschwert's blade in your blood or simply give you some discipline by beating you down. That's when you know that you're in BIG trouble.
Cquote1.svg

Grolla: "...That does it. You have just signed your own death warrant."

Cquote2.svg
  • The Big Girl: Her strength is a significant asset to RKS.
  • Blood Knight: She qualifies because she prefers to fight first and ask questions later.
Cquote1.svg
Cquote2.svg
  • Breast Plate
  • Bring It: She calls out to a certain Advancing Wall of Doom with this before beginning a fight against it after it chases her to the actual boss arena.
  • Calling Your Attacks: She shouts "Grollschwert!" when you input the code for Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert.
    • And again whenever she uses one of the attacks she gains when she Turns Red in Freudenstachel.
  • The Comically Serious: Even though she's the kind of girl who's every bit as strict with her colleagues as she is with herself, there are some times that she just can't get out of a funny situation. Like this part, for example:
Cquote1.svg

Luste: Hey, it's Grolla! What're you doing here?
Grolla: That doesn't matter. Stop what you're doing.
Luste: No way! I wanna play some more!
Grolla: ...Ugh. I hate dealing with idiots.

Luste: Ah! It takes one to know one!

Grolla: It seems you could use some discipline...!

Cquote2.svg
    • And another example:
Cquote1.svg

Zeppy: Kwui-kwui...
Schwer-Muta: ...Scary.
Grolla: (As usual, she makes no sense.)

Cquote2.svg
  • Cool Sword: In previews for the sequel, Freudenstachel, she's acquired one of these.
    • One possessed by the soul of her grandfather, no less.
  • Curtains Match the Window
  • Darker and Edgier: Her Freudenstachel stage. With several scenes of Nightmare Fuel, especially the bloody rainstorm near the end, her Freudenstachel stage is considered darker than her stage in the original game.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: As she gets two stages in the form of a graveyard and a dungeon with bones and blood and even a bloody rainstorm, was taught by a legendary war hero who was brought Back from the Dead as The Grim Reaper and is her grandfather, and is willing to protect her colleagues at any cost.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: At least she's closer to the truth than Tia.
  • Did You Actually Believe?: "You think I would fall for the same trick twice!?"
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: She didn't care if Iris was a god, a human, or even an insect, she was willing to punch her out anyway!
  • Expy: Of Zero, right down to the play style.
  • Flat What: She delivers this when Iris pulls off a Wounded Gazelle Gambit on her by pretending she's an innocent girl being threatened when Sichte walks in.
  • Fragile Speedster: In Grollschwert mode. Her dashing and wall jumping abilities break the stages in ways Tia never can, but she can't take a hit for her life. May or may not also count as Glass Cannon. Ironic, as she's the only character who wears an armor.
  • Good Is Not Nice: In the side-game Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert, she'll fight against her own colleagues just to get them out of her way.
    • Also, the fact that she would rather fight than listen to reason more than qualifies her for this trope.
  • Humiliation Conga: She gets a rather embarrassing humiliation courtesy of Iris' Wounded Gazelle Gambit. Tough break, descendant of Seyfarth!
  • Lady of War
  • Leitmotif: "Dark Purple Moonlight" by Sky God Corridor (RKS stage/RKS Grollschwert title theme), "Dark Purple Moon Dance of the Moon Rebirth~" by Sky God Corridor (Talk theme (shared with her grandfather)), "Acid Rain" by Sound Prison (RKSF stage theme)
  • Leotard of Power
  • Magic Knight
  • Only Sane Girl: In Grollschwert.
  • Perpetual Frowner
  • Prepare to Die: "Traitorous dog! Your life ends here!"
  • Purple Eyes
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: She delivers this to Graf Sepperin in Grollschwert because she pities him for being manipulated by his OWN daughter.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: She had these in one of the screenshots from the Freudenstachel April Fool's site. These were absent in the trial versions as well as the upcoming full game.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: She goes on this after Iris humiliates her with her Wounded Gazelle Gambit. She even combines this with Unstoppable Rage.
    • Of course, this is inverted, as she doesn't kill any of her colleagues. Then she lays Raimund back to rest. Infuriated and deeply hurt afterwards, she vows to make Graf Sepperin pay for disrupting Raimund's peaceful slumber and nearly kills him. She would've finished him off if not for Iris interrupting and stealing her kill.
  • Say My Name: (Freudenstachel defeat quote) "Shishooooooooo!" ("Masteeeeeerrrrrrr!")
  • Silence, You Fool: She says this when Tia says that she's not siding with the Empire when she confronts her at the end of her stage in the main game.
    • Similarly, when she confronts Graf Sepperin, she says this to him and reminds him to know that "the price for toying with the souls of the dead is high", due to having had to slay her undead grandfather and being angered and saddened by doing so.
  • Sir Swearsalot: She in Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert is, surprisingly, quite fond of profanity, despite her speech being on a feudal tongue.
Cquote1.svg

Grolla: (to Iris) "...You bitch."

Cquote2.svg
  • Smug Super: When fighting the Cross Wall, she tells it to show her its worst as she says there's nothing her blade can't cut, and when Tia uses up her last life against her as a boss, she gets a tendency to mock her failed attempts against her. And in the final stage of her side-game, she's even willing to rip Iris apart just the same no matter whether she's a god, a human, or even an insect.
  • The Stoic
  • Sword Plant: One of her new moves in Freudenstachel.
  • Tall, Dark and Bishoujo
  • This Cannot Be!: "...!? This chilling sensation... it can't be... Am I, a Seyfarth, afraid of a mere child!?"
  • This Is Unforgivable!: She's fond of this trope, as after laying her undead grandfather and master Raimund back to eternal rest, she declares that she would show no mercy and make his certain summoner pay for disrupting his peaceful slumber with his life.
Cquote1.svg

Grolla: "Michael Zeppelin... Your reasons mean nothing to me. There will be no mercy. You shall pay for this with your life."

Cquote2.svg
  • Tomboy: A tomboyish knight at that.
  • Turns Red: Especially as a player character in Grollschwert.
  • Unstoppable Rage: She'll stop at nothing to get revenge on anyone who presses her Berserk Button in any way.
  • Violence Is the Only Option: When someone hits her Berserk Button, violence really is her only option!
  • Well Done Daughter Girl: Trau would compliment her for being a pretty tough swords(wo)man after being bested by her. If Zorne has already been defeated, she even admits that she's jealous.
  • Worthy Opponent: She puts up a fair fight in Grollschwert when Tia tries to stop her from killing Iris out of belief that she was a sweetheart. And after Grolla bests her, she gives her pieces of advice that she can heed or cast aside however she likes: "Beware of Iris. If you don't, you'll pay a high price."
  • You Bastard: She calls Sir Raimund a bastard when she mistakes him for an impostor.
  • You Gotta Have Purple Hair
  • You Have to Believe Me: She knows that Iris is using RKS against the Empire just for fun and does this whole deal with her own colleagues, yet doesn't care whether Tia believes her or not as long as she doesn't stand in her way. She tells her colleagues the truth, but they don't believe her. When the convincing fails, she goes into "Good Is Not Nice" mode and beats them up just to get them out of her way.
Cquote1.svg

Grolla: I have stated my reasons. I will not repeat myself.
Freu: At the moment, you cannot be trusted.
Grolla: And yet the truth remains unchanged...
Freu: We might as well cease this debate. Words shall get us nowhere.
Grolla: My thoughts from the very beginning. If my words cannot persuade you, perhaps my blade can sway you instead!

  • You Monster!: She calls Graf Sepperin a demon or a devil (both of which come close to monster) because he meddled with the dark arts to disrupt her grandfather's peaceful slumber.
Cquote1.svg

Grolla: "Any last words, Devil?"

Cquote2.svg
  • You're Insane!: She says such a phrase to Iris after witnessing her murder of a priest and overhearing her plans to have RKS fight against the Empire for her own amusement (and make them think that the coup is to protect her and build a world for Magi to roam free of fear and persecution).
Cquote1.svg

Grolla: "What was that...!? Iris, what is the meaning of this!?"
Iris: "...! How careless of me. I wasn't expecting an audience so soon."
Grolla: "What do you think you're doing!? Iris, have you gone mad!?"

Voiced by: Kotori Kisaki

Cquote2.svg

RKS007 Sieben. The other Team Mom to RKS, Sichte is a level-headed and mature decision maker with keen judgement who is the active leader of the RKS Strike Force. She often frets about her troubled childhood since she was born and raised in the slums, thus having trouble with having faith in those older than her. Ruthless in enemy faces, she's kind and caring to others. She's Grolla's close friend and mistress.

Her ability is Die Geplante Zukunft, which allows her to speed up, slow down, or even stop time, and unleash magical energy in the form of small green emerald shards.


Tropes related with Sichte

  • Ambiguously Brown
  • Bare Your Midriff: In Freudenstachel, due to Clothing Damage to the lower half of her shirt that she somehow got sometime prior to the events of said game.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Sichte's generally kind and caring, you just don't want to mess with her unless you want a knife in the gut from her.
  • Death From Above: One of her attacks when she Turns Red has her come down with a giant brick block from above after resuming time (which makes it another subtle resemblance to Dio below).
  • Expy: Of Dio Brando, Sakuya Izayoi or even Flash Man from Mega Man 2.
  • Eyes of Gold
  • Girly Girl: To Grolla's Tomboy.
  • Knife Nut: See Expy example above.
  • Leitmotif: "CRASH MAN" by Extra Ocean (RKS stage theme), "Night Fire" by Unlimited Hellest (Talk theme), "The Ancient Cry" by Wingless Seraph (RKSF stage theme)
  • Ms. Fanservice: Moreso in the second game. She has huge breasts while wearing a low-cut tube top in addition to Bare Your Midriff above.
  • Not So Stoic: She uses this expression whenever she's worried about Grolla after she retreats when she tries to order her to lower her weapon and not hurt Iris (despite the Wounded Gazelle Gambit pulled off by her, which she didn't know about) and when she shows sadness when Grolla uses up her last life against her and again when the two bid farewells to one another after Grolla defeats her.
  • Shout-Out: Her stage, power, and boss fight are all a shout out to Dio Brando form Jojo's Bizarre Adventure; even your death screen for that stage is drawn in the style of the manga, with Tia saying Jotaro's catchphrase.
    • Her emerald shard attacks are also a Shout-Out to Noriaki Kakyoin's Emerald Splash attack from the same anime.
  • The Stoic: Except during some events where she shows a sad / worried expression.
  • Team Mom
  • Time Stands Still: Again, see the Expy example.
  • Willfully Weak: In Freudenstachel.
  • You Gotta Have Green Hair

RKS008 Acht. A peaceful, compassionate young girl who adores flowers, she's currently under the care of her brother Karl.

She's always willing to do anything for Karl's sake because she loves him THAT much.

Her ability is Liebessturm, which lowers her proximity's atmospheric pressure before unleashing a heavy downpour of rain. It takes time to charge it, but the results can be devastating.

RKS009 Neun. Schwer's a reclusive young girl who dislikes interacting with others, having been forced to subside in a barren, bestial environment before being placed in RKS's care. Because of this trauma that burdens her to this day, she's generally suspicious of everyone she meets. She feels that her only friend is her pet squid Zeppy.

Her ability is Geisterwand, which generates a circle of mace/cross-like objects around her, forming a barrier. While it's primarily a defensive ability, it can also be used for offensive purposes.


Tropes related with Schwer-Muta

Cquote1.svg

Schwer-Muta: "The bonds that tie people together... are just an illusion...!"

Cquote2.svg
  • Crowning Level of Awesome: Her stage is either this or a Scrappy Level. Your Mileage May Vary, natch.
  • The Eeyore: She's always so depressed plus she often uses a low voice and always a soft voice.
    • Not to mention she's very shy.
    • Interesting to note is that she often attacks anyone who comes near out of distrust towards everyone she comes across. In the first game, she attacked like that because everybody missed her birthday. As Tia puts it, "We've all been pretty busy... Everything's been hectic lately."
  • Everything's Squishier with Cephalopods: Her squid sidekick, Zeppy.
  • Everything's Worse with Wolves: Her costume looks just like a wolf. Or it could be a cat suit.
  • Eyes of Gold
  • Hikikomori
  • The Kid with the Remote Control: Inverted, as it's Zeppy the squid who's in control of not only what it does, but also sometimes Schwer's actions as well. Zeppy is not only Schwer's pet and closest friend, he's also able to show signs of expression as a way of showing expression itself whenever Schwer doesn't. Oh, and he spits ink to help her in combat.
  • Leitmotif: "33" by AM 3 (RKS stage theme), "Little Mischief" by Ramine (Talk theme)
  • Little Miss Snarker
  • Mood Whiplash: Opposite of Zorne and Trau. Her talk theme is actually Lighter and Softer than her stage theme.
  • Offscreen Start Bonus: More like Offscreen Start Requirement in her stage. You have to go left to enter the stage, because on the right is a death trap where the start would normally be.
  • Painting the Fourth Wall: If her health goes below 50&, Zeppy starts spitting out ink that slowly covers the screen.
  • Peek-a-Bangs
  • Pettanko
  • The Quiet One: She's pretty silent most of the time. Until Zeppy breaks the silence, that is. Even so, Schwer is still pretty quiet when she speaks.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin
  • Shout-Out: Upon defeat, she says "Uso da...!", which means "Liar...!" in Japanese. This was a phrase often said by Rena in Higurashi no Naku Koro ni when she got angry in response to a perceived lie, only Schwer's "Uso da" was much cuter and quieter and Rena's was much louder and angrier.
  • The Unintelligible: As Grolla would say, "As usual, she makes no sense."


Karl Palesch

Liebea's older brother. He's a member of the RKS intelligence division who places Liebea under his care. He saw through Iris' facade and attempted to dispose of her but she arranged for him to be imprisoned because He Knows Too Much. And just when nothing else could possibly go wrong, Graf Sepperin lied to Liebea about him being held captive by the Empire. Thankfully, he was freed by Freu when she sorted out all the problems left behind by Iris. He was "planned" to be a playable character in Freudenstachel's side-game in a Castlevania-like fashion according to [erka:es]'s 2011 April Fool's joke.

He's strict and stubborn and shows an unforgiving nature, and never gives up on his job even if dishonor may befall his title.

He's looked up to like a father to all the other RKS members, especially his adopted daughter Zorne, who, despite the lack of blood ties, even regards him as her real father for saving her life once. He made a Deal with the Devil and launched a coup against the Empire to (supposedly) protect Iris and help the Magi build a world just for them, and was ultimately Killed Off for Real in the end by Iris.


Tropes related with Graf Sepperin

Graf Sepperin: It seems the Church has learned of Iris and her gifts through Karl. But I was able to pre-empt their plans. To protect Iris, I launched a coup against the Empire. That was the only option available with our current strength. With a mere moment of preparation, I organized our attack.

Cquote2.svg
    • Interestingly, of course, the above quote was just part of the whole much larger part about Karl that Iris made up. As she puts it, "He was able to see through my facade, so I decided to get rid of him."
  • Tall, Dark and Handsome
  • Team Dad: To all of RKS. His job was probably taken by Tia for him after Iris killed him.
  • Tempting Fate: He does a similar thing to his stepdaughter before his own boss battle.

A young girl placed under the care of RKS. Iris pretty much appears to be a kind, innocent, and mature-for-her-age girl who's much loved and trusted by everyone. However, that's just a facade: underneath her so-called "innocent demeanor" lies an utterly cruel Magnificent Bastard who's willing to do everything in her power for her own personal gain. She likes to sing as she talks, as evidenced by the eighth note (♪) placed at the end of her sentences. Everything she does, no matter how cruel or hurtful, is all done strictly For the Evulz. She's also a reincarnation of the legendary Magus Rosenkreuz, blessed with absolute power and unparalelled brains, and with that, she seeks to usurp God himself.

Her ability is Blitzstrahl, which lets her unleash electric sphere attacks and even generate bolts of lightning in different directions at once.


Tropes related with Iris

  • Affably Evil
  • A God Am I: Her defining character trait.
  • Ambiguous Innocence
  • Badass Boast: "You think a run-of-the-mill Magus like yourself can stand a chance against me, Rosenkreuz reborn? This is why I can't stand commoners... I have transcended humanity. I, Iris Zeppelin, have become a God! A worthless insect like yourself can't hope to stop me."
    • And in Grollschwert: "Of course. I exist on a higher plane than you commoner trash. Shall I enlighten you on how special I really am? I am the strongest Magus in existence, the heiress to the limitless power of the great Rosenkreuz! Blessed with absolute power and unparalelled brains, I am a child of God himself! I can't be compared to the likes of you!"
  • Berserk Button: Anyone who is willing to rip her apart regardless of whether she's a god, a human, or even an insect will result in her Berserk Button getting pressed and therefore lead her to attempt showing them the limits of a commoner by DESTROYING them. She also doesn't take too well to anyone interfering with her plans.
  • Big Bad Friend: As she's the one who plotted all of the war.
  • Cheerful Child
  • The Chessmaster: She humiliated and outsmarted Grolla by pulling off a Wounded Gazelle Gambit on her.
  • Cry Cute: During her Wounded Gazelle Gambits as well as her defeated mugshot when she gets bested by Tia in the final battle.
  • Cute and Psycho: Oh, yes, definitely. Shows at the end of the first game in both modes, of course. While she's generally a calm, collected, prim and proper little girl over the course of the stories of both the main game and Grollschwert, she gets the Psycho part even more when she gets her Villainous Breakdown just before the final battle, as she starts laughing maniacally and very quickly changes her prim and proper attitude to insane motormouthed arrogance. Even so, she still has the cute part, of course.
  • Daddy's Little Villain: Inverted in that she pulled off the "You Have Outlived Your Usefulness" deal on him and didn't care about his death - but he in her words was certainly entertaining.
  • Diabolical Mastermind
  • Did You Actually Believe?: See Badass Boast above.
  • Enfant Terrible
  • Evil Laugh
  • Evil Plan: She pulls this off on Grolla in Grollschwert starting with a Wounded Gazelle Gambit where she makes it look like she's an innocent girl being threatened when Sichte walks in. With this, she makes Grolla look like a traitor to the organization and arranges for her daddy to order her execution. And that's not all; she even arranges to have Sir Raimund brought Back from the Dead as part of her plan to make Grolla suffer.
    • She even knew that Zorne had always hated her straight from the beginning, so knowing she herself was her dad's entire world, she planned to make Zorne suffer by pulling off a You Have Outlived Your Usefulness on the Graf after he was beaten by Tia/Grolla. And won.
  • Expy: Of Dr. Wily, and Lumine.
  • Final Boss
  • For the Evulz She made RKS fight against the Empire for laughs and even amuses herself with other people's, especially Zorne's and Grolla's, suffering.
  • Gambit Roulette: When she plots something, you can always expect everything to go according to her plans no matter how unlikely it is. That is, unless someone like Freu or Grolla interferes.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She becomes this towards Tia during her breakdown upon realizing that Tia has what she's been looking for - Rosenkreuz's spirit and ability to tap into the strength of others'.
  • Hair of Gold: Seems to be this, with the glimpses of her personality, until it's revealed later that she's the opposite.
  • Intelligence Equals Isolation: Her case.
  • Kick the Dog: She does this quite a lot throughout the first game, such as killing a priest in the beginning of Grollschwert just for laughs. Also, what other better time for her to do this than to kill her own dad because she no longer had a need for him? Sheesh, give the old man a break, damn it!
  • Killer Rabbit
  • Large Ham: Aww, she's so cute when she throws in a large word in one of her sentences. Yep, she definitely loves chewing the scenery, especially with her Wounded Gazelle Gambits that she's so fond of pulling off on everybody else, and she has quite a few moments of throwing in huge words to gain more respect from the audience. That's right, Beatrice, feel free to applaud!
  • Leitmotif: Lots, to be exact. "Power of God, Human Heart" by Unlimited Hellest (main theme), "18" by AM 3 (Iris Stage 3 theme), "Heavy Snake" by Unlimited Hellest (Iris Stage 3 talk theme), "Pray to Muse For..." by Song! Cat Room: Unkolyn (Iris Stage 3 boss theme), "The Devil Loves a Fallen Angel" by Unlimited Hellest (RKS Final Stage talk theme), "Last Battle Requiem for Myself" by Song! Cat Room: Unkolyn
  • Light Is Not Good
  • Man Behind the Man: Actually, Girl Behind The Man.
  • Manipulative Bastard: She manipulated RKS into launching the coup against the Empire just for kicks.
  • Nice Hat: She gets a tiara on her forehead in the first game's climax.
  • Oh Crap: She uses this expression when Grolla overhears her plot to have RKS fight against the Empire for kicks in the beginning of Grollschwert.
  • One-Winged Angel: In the final battle, she turns into a seraphic version of herself.
  • Physical God: She claims to be one.
  • Power Gives You Wings: In her One-Winged Angel form.
  • Psycho Electro: She qualifies even further when she gets her Villainous Breakdown.
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Shock and Awe: Her Blitzstrahl ability.
  • Shout-Out: She seems to be named after and be similar to Iris, the rainbow goddess, and Eris, the goddess of chaos. Like the rainbow goddess of the same name (only with a different pronounication), her One-Winged Angel transformation appears to be a beautiful maiden with wings, and like Eris, she delights in causing as much mayhem as possible just for fun, mainly by manipulating others into attacking one another. Iris herself claims to be a god anyway, so this makes perfect sense.
  • Smug Super: She believes herself to be incomparable to everyone else since she claims to be a god.
Cquote1.svg

Iris: How amusing that you, an ordinary Magus, would even think of holding your own against me.
Grolla: Enough of your boasting.
Iris: My, my! Jealous, I see. You are a commoner through and through. Nothing you can do will ever compare to the genius of my abilities!

Cquote2.svg
  • This Cannot Be!: She says many variations of this whenever she is defeated.
  • This Is the Final Battle: "I would kill you here and now, but I have a better idea. I'll let you prepare yourselves for a final showdown. You had better get ready!"
  • The Trickster: Her innocent demeanor fooled everyone into not knowing that she started the war for her entertainment.
  • Villain Opening Scene: She gets this in Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert.
  • Villainous Breakdown: She gets this on two occasions:
    • #1: When Tia confronts her in the main game, she starts laughing madly and going crazy when she finally realizes that Tia is Rosenkreuz's other incarnation, the "Blade of Rosenkreuz".
    • #2: When Grolla confronts her at the end of Grollschwert, she finally reveals to her that she's the reincarnation of Rosenkreuz, and for good reasons. Grolla, of course, doesn't care - she's willing to rip her apart anyway. Not taking that too well, Iris flies into a rage and shouts "You pompous maggot...! I shall show you the limits of a commoner!"
  • Wasn't That Fun?: For when you use up your last life against her during the second phase of the fight against her Iris Machine.
Cquote1.svg

Iris: Now THAT was fun! ♪

Cquote2.svg
    • Alternatively:
Cquote1.svg

Iris: Now THAT was quality entertainment. ♪

Cquote2.svg
  • Winged Humanoid: Again, her One-Winged Angel form.
  • The Wise Princess: She seems to have shades of this. She has as much intellect as Rosenkreuz, plus in the first game, she's very well-dressed in elegant clothing, similar to that of a real princess. Of course, this is inverted, as she's more of an evil and malicious Magnificent Bastard than expected.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: She pulls this on Grolla in Grollschwert mode and pretty much everyone in the main game.
    • And her dad, you forgot her dad. She also pulls this in the final battle after she's beaten, furthering her resemblance to Mega Man villain, Dr. Wily. And knowing that there's a sequel, she'll probably make an appearance...
  • Xanatos Gambit: She pretty much pulled this off on Tia as well. To start things off, she made it look like she was kidnapped by her own dragon slave Talos just so she could get Tia to pick up her pendant. Then again, she had always wanted to play the "damsel in distress" part.
  • Xanatos Speed Chess: The Empire feared Iris for her plan to usurp God and wanted her dead, and Karl saw through her and tried to dispose of her. Of course, being the Magnificent Bastard she is, she was always one step beyond the Empire's best strategies, and she even had Karl locked up because He Knows Too Much. She manipulated RKS into launching a coup against the Empire just for kicks, and neither Tia nor RKS knew of it. The only one who knew of Iris' threat was Grolla. Iris knew that Grolla would attempt to kill her anyway now that she had overheard her plans and attacked her, so she had a backup strategy in the form of a Wounded Gazelle Gambit pulled on her. And if that's not enough, she also had another backup strategy in the form of laying bare her plan to make Grolla suffer by arranging for her dad to bring Sir Raimund Back from the Dead as The Grim Reaper.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: She pulls this on her father after the battle with him. She would have done the same to Spiritia if not for a Big Damn Heroes moment from Freudia reminiscent of Proto Man.


Talos

A dragon who appears in the beginning of the game to kidnap Iris. In truth he was actually enslaved by her until Tia (and Grolla) freed him by shattering the red orb. He gladly returns the favor by taking them to her and saving Tia when Iris self-destructs her palace.


Tropes related with Talos


Rosenkreuz

The legendary Magus who dedicated his life to the Magi and helped them each live lives free of fear and persecution. Ultimately, he and his eight disciples took a stand against the Holy Empire and the Orthodox Church in a long and grueling war that ultimately ended with his Heroic Sacrifice having the Empire accept the Magi as their subordinates. A few decades later, he was reincarnated into two separate beings: Iris, with his absolute power and unparalelled brains, and Tia, with his soul as well as his strongest ability: the ability to tap into the strength of others'.


Tropes related with Rosenkreuz

  • Guile Hero: Legend has it that he landed himself in this spot due to a nice gambit planned out to have the Empire accept Magi as its subordinates by SACRIFICING his own life to do so. How cool is that?
  • The Hero Dies: He became this after pulling off his own Heroic Sacrifice to have his final wish for Magi to be allowed to live alongside humans as soldiers of the Empire granted.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: This is the reason why he was Badass: At the end of the war, he offered up his life to have the Empire accept Magi as part of its military. That made them what they are today: Rosenkreuzstilette, the "Blades of the Rose Cross".
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness
  • Invincible Hero: At least until he died after pulling off his Heroic Sacrifice to have the Magi accepted as soldiers of the Empire. According to Graf Sepperin, the Church, whom the Empire's reins of power lay within, feared him because he was the most powerful Magus in history.
  • Light Is Good
  • Mega Manning: He's able to tap onto the strength of his close companions. This power is later inherited by Tia as "the Blade of Rosenkreuz".
  • The Obi-Wan: To the Magi, including eight disciples of his, before his Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Posthumous Character
  • Team Dad: To Magi in the past, as well as an Invincible Hero, just before performing his Heroic Sacrifice to have the Magi allowed to live alongside humans as part of the Empire's military.
