Guideline for writing profilesShow
Content guidelines:
• (*) Spellcheck before submitting. (No, honestly.)
• (*) Character profiles are supposed to be accessible to readers who know neither the series nor the character, as such: a) use as few series-specific proper nouns as possible (character names included) b) avoid spoilers beyond what is absolutely necessary to establish the character
• Any length is fine. 150-500 words is usually a reasonable limit.
• We tend to use the present tense by default, past tense when referring to flashback material and future tense when making allusions to future (or spoiler) developments.
• (*) A profiles says not only “who is she/he?” but also “why is she/he moe?”. Rather than dry facts, we want your personal take on what characteristics make the character special and moe. No point turning those profiles into a shorter wikipedia entry.

Midoriya IzukuShow
"Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them."

For the boy named Midoriya Izuku, these three phrases describe his path towards becoming the world's number one hero well.

He was born with a compassionate heart that is unrivaled even among other professional heroes. When forced to decide between protecting himself or saving the life of another at the risk of his own life, Izuku will never hesitate to choose the latter. However, he was told that he did not have a quirk to call his own, he begun to despair under the belief that he would never be able to achieve his dreams of becoming a hero one day.

He grew up being bullied by his peers for being powerless and weak, and he had every right to give up and grow frustrated at his unjust circumstances. Instead, he chose to work hard for his dream. Training so hard until his body broke, Izuku forcefully grabbed that fleeting dream and took a step closer to it himself.

With his selflessness and willingness to work hard combined, he was finally entrusted with the quirk of his idol; One for All. It was yet another step towards that elusive goal Izuku has always dreamed of as a child.

His journey towards greatness has only just begun, but Izuku will continuously prove to everyone that he is worthy of that greatness.
Ishida ShōyaShow
Does everyone truly deserve a second chance?

Initially, Shōya didn't think so. As a child in elementary school, Shōya was a devious, carefree and self-centered boy. He lived out his days battling his boredom with mean spirited pranks others. When a girl with a hearing disability transfers into his class, he took advantage of her handicap and heavily bullied her. In his mind, it was nothing more than games to ease his boredom.

There would come a time, however, when Karma hits back hard. Later found out to be the tormentor of the poor girl, Shōya became the scapegoat for the bullying. He was isolated, beaten, bullied. Even as the years past, he could not shake off the horrible stigma others have already placed on him.

With regret, guilt and a genuine wish to undo his mistakes, Shōya set out to do what most others would not have been able to gain the confidence to; seek redemption. The road to redemption is no easy path. It is laced with doubt from others, self-doubt from himself and the cold reality that sometimes, scars from the past cannot fade. However, even if at the cost of himself, Shōya would do anything to atone for the sins he made towards the people around him.

Perhaps one day, he may even find it in his heart to forgive himself.
Jeanne d'ArcShow
There was no other person who could fit the word 'purity' better than Jeanne d'Arc.

Her beginnings are humble. Born to a common farmer, she grew up living an average peasant life until she claimed to hear the word of God. God lamented the chaos the world has been thrown in, and with his single command, Jeanne threw away her peaceful life in the countryside to become a general of war.

Jeanne knew that she would not be able to marry and have a family anymore, and she foresaw her existence as something that will be hated by many in the future. Despite knowing the hardships that awaited her, Jeanne still stuck true to her faith. She wielded a flag with an emblem of peace and lead her army. She devoted herself to fighting in the name of her Lord and protect her country until her very last breath. Even when she ultimately saw defeat and was executed by burning at the stake, Jeanne never once hated those who condemned her or regretted her decision to fight for the just cause.

Now hailed as a saint, she continues to imbue an air of purity as she is summoned into a new life as a Ruler with one task; to mediate and oversee the new Holy Grail war.
Copy Pasted from 2017 thread (Toady already linked the docs which has them but I'll just stick them here)
Naegi Makoto @ DanganronpaShow
Naegi Makoto is an average highschooler. He comes from an ordinary family, has average grades and even more average looks. Worst of all, he doesn't have a single talent worth bragging about.

So how did the most average teenage boy get invited into the most prestigious high school in Japan? His name was picked in a lucky draw and thus, was admitted into Hope's Peak Academy as the Super Highschool level luckster. Little did Makoto know that the moment he stepped foot into Hope's Peak, his life that he had once thought would be filled with hope would instead be shrouded in despair.

Trapped within the building of the school, Makoto and his classmates are told the only requirement for graduating; kill someone and get away with it. The students begin to grow paranoid and fearful for their own lives. They feel defeated, and eventually give up on the hopes of ever escaping.

However, against all odds, Makoto stays optimistic and helps his classmates whenever he can. His kindness towards others causes the atmosphere to feel less dark and even when the situation looks the most bleak, Makoto's hope triumphs over despair.
There is only one word needed to describe Sakamoto. Cool.

Handsome, suave, intelligent; Sakamoto has no trouble looking cool no matter what he does. Even when the other boys in class attempt to prank or outwit him, Sakamoto is always one step ahead of them. Whether it is mopping the floor, feeding pigeons or even just sitting stil; Sakamoto always finds a way to look stylish. He keeps calm when faced with problems and analyses his situation quietly before solving the issue in the most impressive and cool way. His seemingly perfect track record even earns him a large amount of admirers; from both boys and girls alike.

Inside though, Sakamoto is also a kind man who never fails to help others in need; such as saving a fellow student from bullies. It is no wonder then that even those who attempt to bully Sakamoto out of jealousy would inevitably grow a strong admiration for him!

Sakamoto is without a doubt cool, cooler and the coolest!

Chtholly Nota Seniorious

What is happiness? Do people have the right to demand sacrifice of happiness from others? Can someone be happy if that someone's identity is fading? These are the serious questions Chtholly faces, but in a way, it is a question every sentient beings face, usually more often than they would like.
Initially Chtholly is seen as a mysterious wandering girl who just wants a little taste of what most other carefree girls enjoy and experience. Even though she takes her duty as a Faery Sword Maiden seriously, the overbearing pressure brought to her by her harsh situation made her wants to break out of her obedient responsible shell, making her to act out in somewhat immature ways. Her meeting with the main character made her realize that she need not perish, that she can dream about the future, a future that may be more typical of girls of her age.

Yet the relentless march of time takes away as much as it gives. Despite her hope for future, due to the nature of the artificial fairies, she starts to make her lose her memories little by little. Despite facing large number of questions that can easily overwhelm anyone, she continues to make choices to be responsible to people around her by helping them in what ways available to her, and let her feelings bloom in loving warming ways. How can she find happiness when the world as she knows it is literally falling apart around her? Yet in end, bravely she declares that she cannot be happier because she already is the happiest girl in the world, not because of what she was given, but because of what she could do.

Is she deceiving herself, or is she truly happiest she can be? Do people find Chtholly memorable because of her cute moments, or is it due to her awesome prowess and dignified composure in the face of inevitable doom? Is she filled with contradictions, or are those nothing more than various of facets of life a young girl?

We may never be able to answer these questions satisfactorily. Still, let us bask in the glory emanating from this lovely complicated sword yielding fairy.

Kayano Kaede (Ansatsu Kyōshitsu)Show

No one expects the always smiling, energetic, sugar-loving side character to hold the greatest desire to kill her homeroom teacher.

For Kayano Kaede, a true master of deception needs to follow three principles. The first is to divert the focal point of the audience to another member. A slightly reserved boy who is self-conscious about his appearance would do just fine. Grant the boy enough encouragement and a little motivation, and he will be the star of the classroom while she can carry on playing second fiddle as she conjures her next plan.

The second principle is to match the antics of the group and blend in when required. If others around her are requesting assistance to execute his or her outlandish plans, she must abide in order to gain that person’s trust. In return, she must create her own ridiculous methods of assassination in order to confuse others to believe she is on the same page as them. It may be waste of her time, but it will be worth the penultimate reward.

The final rule is to create a façade and hide all unnecessary emotions underneath one’s skin. Everybody likes a cute girl who is ready and willing to listen to one’s distress. Continue the act, and no one will find out that the same girl pretending to be friends with others desires nothing but revenge. The bright smile and pure eyes undermines her hatred for her homeroom teacher on a personal and emotional level. She will kill her teacher, reap the reward, and swiftly disappear, no questions asked.

Another day means another game of make-believe. She must put up with this charade or else all that she worked for would be for the naught. She enters her classroom, replaying the same lines, phrases, and gestures over and over again until the penultimate day.
Daidōji Tomoyo (Cardcaptor Sakura)Show

Every magical girl requires a sidekick, and no one else fits the role more prominently than Daidōji Tomoyo.

When her best friend befriends a mythical creature and becomes a magical girl with an important duty, Tomoyo is unfazed. In fact, this is the perfect opportunity for her to finally get her best friend to wear all the costumes she had sown specifically for this moment. What better way to capture her friend saving the world while wearing fancy outfits than with her trusted camcorder?

Tomoyo may be oblivious to the dangers around her, but it only highlights how important her bond to her dear friend is. If no one else believes that her friend has what it takes to take on the burdens of her duty, Tomoyo will be her guiding light, her source of strength. Her trust and love for her friend is second to none, and not a single entity, earthly or otherworldly, can shatter that bond.

With a kind heart and gentle smile, Tomoyo is ready to record her friend collecting those mystical cards.
Sagara Sōsuke (Full Metal Panic!)Show

No amount of military training can prepare Sagara Sōsuke for the most important mission of his career: infiltrate a high school in the guise of a student and protect the most boisterous girl in his class.

Caught in the middle of a war at a young age, Sōsuke learned two important things in life: survive and fight. Becoming a member of the army that targets terror attacks heightened his resolve. Whenever he had spare time, he would train at a gym, a shooting range, or anywhere that would allow him to foster his abilities further. In no time, he became one of, if not, the most important member of the military, performing deadly missions only he can accomplish successfully.

Yet, the fight in the front lines is nothing compared to the horrors of a high school classroom. No matter how tactical his methods are, his superiors (teachers) yell at him for no reason, or so he thinks. No matter how pure his intentions are, his compatriots (classmates) remind him that what he is doing is not normal, for some reason. Yet, his chief commander (student council president) is lenient on his punishment, so why is everyone else, including the person he is sworn to protect, so negative about his actions and choice of words? These questions may never be properly answered, for better or worse.

The story of Sōsuke is the struggle of a soldier adapting to life as an average civilian. The trauma of war will never be fully shaken off of his core. There is no such thing as peace, and behind every smile and kind gesture hides an ulterior motive. Not even a friendly barber can properly cut his hair with Sōsuke fearing that he will be killed by those scissors when his guard is down.

His body is always on guard; his mind, constantly alert. His soul may never know rest.
Alphonse Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist)Show

Regaining his consciousness as a suit of armor may not be his first choice, but it has its benefits.

After an attempt to revive his deceased mother went wrong, Alphonse Elric should have disappeared from the face of the earth, yet he still lives in the form of a full metal suit. Because he can move his armor as freely as he pleased, many never notice that within the suit lies a hollow body with only a circle that connects him to the material world. Should it break at any given moment, Alphonse may not get a chance to see the light of day ever again.

Life as an armored suit is not as bad as it seems. The supposed man inside is a polite, kindhearted soul who would do everything in his power to make sure those around him is safe from harm. Like his older brother, he has a strong sense of justice, believing that those who abuse the power of alchemy should be rightfully judged. Unlike his older brother, he is pure at heart and cannot help but blush when others think he is the acclaimed “Fullmetal Alchemist,” much to his brother’s chagrin.

Time and time again, Alphonse is reminded that he is not human. He has to pretend to eat when a child offers him some bread. People use his body to hide goods or themselves like a chest. He can still talk even though parts of his armor are scattered in various places. Is he truly a monster? Can he ever be human again? Is it even possible to regain his human state?

Returning to his material body can wait. Right now, Alphonse wants to enjoy as much of the present for as long as he can. After all, who else is going to watch over his older brother when he causes another stir?

Kanna Kamui (Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon)Show

There is a gothic tribal wearing young dragon standing by the doorstep. She seeks one thing: others like her. However, a constant offering in the form of snacks will do just fine.

As a young dragon, Kanna Kamui’s curiosity knows no boundaries, and the human realm provides enough abnormalities for her to question the daily lives and actions of such interesting creatures. However, even watching from afar becomes a chore for her, so she decides to live the life of an elementary school student. She may be older and more knowledgeable than the rest of her classmates, which may include her teacher, but such differences do not mean much to her.

Despite her age and race, Kamui is still a child at heart. She will cause a fuss if things do not go her way, get angry about the smallest of things, and may selfishly ask for things outside of her control. But when she sees how hard others around her a working just to match her request, Kamui remembers to politely thank them for the hard work they have done just to put up with her. And if they did not mind, it makes her all the more satisfied.

Kamui is ready for another day of adventure. Beware the cuteness that is Kanna Kamui!
Tōru (Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon)Show

There is a dragon maid standing by the door, and she is ready to do whatever it takes to create a healthy and relaxing atmosphere for the house.

Granted, Tōru does not have the proper skillset to work as a main, but that does not stop her from trying. She would fly her master to work in a matter of seconds. She can travel to her home world to gather ingredients for a spectacular meal. She can destroy any traveling salesperson who tries to invade their property. If all goes wrong, she has no problem serving her tail to her master, much to her master’s chagrin.

Tōru only ran away to this world to recover from her near-death would, so why is she still here when she is clearly more than healthy enough to return to her home world. Truth be told, Tōru likes the human realm more so than her own world. Here, the people are nice, warm, and friendly, nothing like those back home who wish to kill her simply because of what her race has done to their people. Tōru will retaliate should her life be in danger, but the constant struggle between humans and dragons is not something she wants to live through again, if possible.

These peaceful times cannot last forever. Tōru knows in the back of her mind that the human life is but a blink of an eye in dragon years. Why create friendships with humans now when she knows she will outlive her human friends and fell remorse when they finally depart? Tōru understands this, but deep in her heart, she wants to keep living like this. She knows her time with them will end in pain, but Tōru wishes to enjoy this present moment as much as possible, for it is the happiest she has been in so long.

Only a few minutes left until her master returns home. Making sure everything is nice and clean and the food prepared is satisfying, Tōru awaits her master’s return with open arms and a smile on her face.
Nishimiya Shōko (Koi no Katachi)Show
The heart of a maiden. The voice for the voiceless.

For the longest time, Nishimiya Shōko knew that she was different from the rest of society. However, such abnormalities do not stop her from trying to mingle with society to the best of her abilities. If her classmates are unwilling to speak her language, she will simply write it in paper. If they start to write nasty things about her, she will simply erase it away. If they heckled her, she would not be able to hear it.

Shōko struggles to make friends due to her differences, but even she can snap when people take her condition too far. Can anyone imagine all the years of bottled up feelings inside her, all the things that she wants to say and do, all the torture she has to go through just to be normal? Is acting as a good student not good enough? Is there really no place for her to stay in this world? Would it be better if she suddenly disappeared?

The story of Shōko is the search of one’s meaning in life when one’s voice is not heard, the struggle to be human when others treat her unfairly, and the courage to continue to live one’s life despite having a disability. More importantly, it is a search to find one’s inner voice and to shout out to the world that she is here, that she exists, and that she is who she is. She may not proud of herself as much as the next person, but that will not stop her from finding her own voice.

Sasuke Uchida (NARUTO)Show
The snake who will devour the darkness it feeds on, or a hawk who will soar to cut its own path?

For the longest time, Sasuke Uchida only cared around revenge. As the sole survivor of the Uchida clan, Sasuke vows to defeat the one who killed everyone who is important to him. Seeking to learn from the best for the sake of power, Sasuke challenges himself constantly, pushing his limits until he can barely stand, all the his one purpose. The day he kills that murderer will be the day he finally knows peace.

Power and friendship are the main weights in Sasuke’s scale. It is easy for him to overlook friendship for the sake of more power. Even when his closet of companions begged him not to fall to a path that may have no return, he reminds them that it is already too late. The minute he chose revenge and not forgiveness, his path had already started to crumble into darkness. Every step he takes relays his purpose, not his guilt.

Friend or foe, nothing will stop him from his vengeance. And vengeance will be his.
Naruto Uzumaki (NARUTO)Show
”I’m going to become Hokage!”

To everyone, Naruto Uzumaki’s dream to become their ruler is but a pipe dream. After all, someone who has poor grades, a lack of self-control, and an infamous behavior has no place in the king’s seat. However, no amount of negligence from the populous will stop him from realizing his dream. He has not been training in secret simply to show the naysayers that he cannot achieve it. Rather than remain angry and depressed because his people continue to shun him, Naruto chose to prove himself that he has what it takes to become the best ninja of his village.

Behind the carefree smile and laidback attitude masks a boy who wishes to be noticed. Why else is he making a fool out of himself and causing a ruckus for everyone in the village? He may have obtained the attention he was looking for, but that is far from the type he was hoping for. Naruto wants to be seen as an honorable ninja, someone who will do anything for the sake of his people. Most importantly, he wants to be someone the people can fully trust when something happens to them.

No matter what challenges await him, Naruto is ready for anything that comes his way. Believe it!
Satoshi (Pokémon)Show
Behind the fiery eyes of this brave young boy is the dream to win the Pokémon League and be crowned as the greatest Pokémon Master!

Life as a Pokémon Trainer is probably not as exotic as Satoshi would hope. Sometimes, his Pokémon barely listen to him and would good around instead of listen to him. Sometimes, he gets too ahead of himself and is reprimanded for his rash behavior. More often than not, he is constantly confronted by a couple goons who try to steal his Pokémon. However, the adventure towards his dream will be worth it.

Satoshi strongly believes that the best way to train one’s Pokémon is to treat them like family. Occasionally, he would meet people who abuse his or her authority over them or treat Pokémon as though they are mere statistical data. Satoshi may not be able to change their ways, but that is not going to stop him from challenging that kind of behavior. It does not matter who or what he is facing. With his Pokémon and friends by his side, he will stop anyone who tries to tarnish that bond.

The road to becoming the greatest Pokémon Master is bound to be bumpy, but that is not going to stop Satoshi from trying his best to achieve it. It is time to catch them all!
Echizen Ryōma (Prince of Tennis)Show
The prince of tennis has arrived.

Perhaps the number one rookie of his year, Echizen Ryōma graces the tennis court as though he was born to be in it. He certainly has the skills to be part of his high school starting line-up, even though he is in his first year. Many people admire and detest him because of his proud attitude, but Ryōma does not seem to mind. Time and time again, he surprises everyone with his growth as a player and a person on and off court, and if that does not change the people’s opinion about him, nothing else will.

There are more important things that he cares about besides getting along with the crowd. Above all, Ryōma wants to be recognized by his father, said to be one of, if not, the greatest tennis players of his generation. Ryōma struggles with his desire to quickly become an adult and prove that he does not need to ride on his father’s footsteps to make it big in the tennis world. One day, he will make his father have a serious match against him, win or lose.

Ryōma still has some work to do before he can overcome his father’s legacy, but with his trusted comrades by his side, he is sure to carve his own path.

Shiina Mayuri (Steins;Gate)Show
”Tu-Tu-Ru~! Mayushii’s here!”

The purity of Shiina Mayuri’s heart knows no bounds. Easily acquainting others into her amusing circle and becoming fast friends with said people seems second nature to her. She is friendly with everyone, and everyone seems to be comfortable with talking to her about various things happening in their lives. Of course, Mayuri is always happy to lend an ear for her dear cohorts. After all, that is what friends do.

While many see Mayuri as the little sister of the group, a proper archetype would be that of a mother. Mayuri is more observant than people give her credit for and can see the minute details of people’s expressions and auras. She also knows that, at some point, she cannot be the anchor that holds the group together for too long and patiently waits for a certain someone to grow up and be sophisticated in a life without her.

Until those conditions are met, Mayuri is more than happy to fool around with whatever game they are playing. Bizarre codenames and alien linguistics aside, Mayuri is more that prepared to complete whatever mission they are on. Mayushii will do her best!
Ayanokōji Kiyotaka (Yōkoso Jitsuryoku Shijō Shugi no Kyōshitsu e)Show
Inherently insignificant or dangerously devilish?

In a school secluded from society where grades and conduct are key to survival, Ayanokōji Kiyotaka simply did not care about any of that. He is more than content with going with the flow of society and becoming a shadow that lingers about in the academy. When questionable activity occurs inside and outside the school’s meritocratic regime, Kiyotaka starts to question the true motive behind creating such an obscure academic system as this one.

As calculating as he is observant, it seems as though there are others who see his shadow as an imposing threat to the greater cause. Should someone who manages to obtain a perfect score of 50 throughout all of his exams belong in the worst class of his grade? Why would he solve the many issues and mysterious surrounding the schools exams and unconventional tests, but shift all the glory over to someone else? What else does he know that he is not supposed to know in a society that is having a difficult time manipulating his shadow to do its bidding?

Kiyotaka has his own reason for hiding in the shadows of his peers, and until his own goals are met, he will use every tactic in the book to get to his target. And so, Kiyotaka’s “normal” life continues…
Horikita Suzune (Yōkoso Jitsuryoku Shijō Shugi no Kyōshitsu e)Show
Failure is not an option.

Continuously driven into the corner by how insignificant she is, Horikita Suzune chose to take a stand for herself. No longer the weak-willed girl that she once was, if she wants to see something happen, she will speak out and do things through her own means. Cunning, calculating, and deceptive, Suzune will do everything in her power to get her message across and have things done her way.

They say the past shapes how someone appears in the present, and Suzune is no exception. Time and time again, she has issues dealing with her own past whenever they catch up to her. Her knees bucke whenever she sees her older brother. Her fears of not becoming successful continue to haunt her. Still, she will stubbornly push herself to her limits if it means proving the point that she is mentally strong.

The road to becoming the elite members of the school are blocked, but Suzune will break down the walls and carve a path for herself one way or another. This is not just a test; it is a declaration of war.
Kasugano Haruka (Yosuga no Sora)Show
Peace within one’s surroundings is one thing. Peace within oneself is a different agenda.

Kasugano Haruka is kind to all, perhaps too kind. The death of his parents and the deconstruction of his younger sister forced him to play his hand and return to the town they once grew up in. Rather than remain shattered by what he suddenly lost, Haruka chose to continue forward, knowing that staying stagnant will not solve anything. He puts up a brave front, believing that nothing can be accomplished if one were to remain sullen.

The return to the old town rekindles the lost memories that he had with various individuals in his neighborhood and his school and reignites the fire that burns inside him. Interacting with old and new friends allows him to forget about his past and enjoy the moment as it is given to him. And should the various people that he meets spark a different kind of fire in his heart, Haruka is more than prepared to answer the burning questions within his friends’ hearts.

In a world of supposed solitude, Haruka is able to move on with his life and continue on with his days, but will the joyful moments that he has truly overshadow the emptiness that haunts him? Only time will tell.

Kurumizawa Satanichia McDowell (Gabriel Dropout!Show
The great Kurumizawa Satanichia McDowell has but one goal: to become the next Queen of Hell. Her first goal? Take over her high school and control it with the palm of her hand.

Life as the next heir to the demon throne is all but full of hardships. Daily, Satania has to deal with conniving angels, merciless teachers, and that one dog that keeps stealing her favorite treat. Never fear, for she is in cahoots with a certain devilish telemarketing company that provides her with an endless supply of goods in exchange for cash. Maybe that is why funds are low for her devilish needs.

Ironically, despite her endless amount of failed pranks and demonic misfires, Satania is probably the purest member of her group of acquaintances. Although childish and gullible, Satania’s pride as a demon reminds everyone that she is serious about her dreams and aspirations. As long as everyone goes along with her flow, Satania would shoot her biggest smile imaginable. Until that happens, she needs to learn the hard way that not everything can be perfectly served to her in a silver platter.

The quest to become the next Queen of Hell is said to be full of thorns and ruin, but Satania is more than prepared to take on the challenge. Besides, what kind of demon actually does her homework, like a good student is supposed to do?
Tenma Gabriel White (Gabriel Dropout!Show
There once was an angel who was said to be the new prodigy in the angelic realm. Kind, compassionate, intelligent, and athletic – there was not a doubt in everyone’s mind that she would become something great during her time on Earth. That angel’s name… is not Tenma Gabriel White anymore.

The current Gabriel that everyone seems to remember her as is a lazy, disheveled, arrogant girl who would rather spend more time on the internet than schoolwork or extracurricular activities. Heaven never informed her how addicting the internet world, particularly MMORPGs, can be; thus, Gabriel succumbs to a lifestyle not appropriate for either heaven or Earth’s standards.

Just because her personality flipped upon her monumental finding and new hoody does not mean that not all hope is lost for the self-proclaimed “Fallen Angel.” Every now and again, Gabriel would exert herself to do something that she believes is for a good cause. She would help people in her own way, protect her friends when push comes to shove, and find ways to make others smile. There is absolutely nothing that she wants in return for all the hard work and effort she has put to turn a situation around. Absolutely nothing. But, if someone is going to reward her, Gabriel may accept it. Just a little bit.

For now, the people in the various worlds of the MMORPG need her. She hears their cries and demand for help, and she will answer their pleas and worries. After all, she is an angel.
Tsukinose Vignette AprilShow
There is no such thing as an angelic demon… is there?

Tsukinose Vignette April is not the atypical demon one would expect. Vignette is studious in her studies, cleans her room daily, and is more than happy to help out her classmates whenever they are in need. No wonder why everyone mistakes her for an angel.

As kind and caring as she is, Vignette wonders whether it is proper for her to be so nice when her race is meant for her devilish actions. Yet, even after she gets help from humans, angels, and demons alike, Vignette somehow manages to turn all her negative deeds into good ones, making all those around her happy while she laments whether or not she did the right thing.

Concerned about whom she is and what she is supposed to be, Vignette is constantly striving for the proper mix of good and evil. Yet, when all of her friends happen to have flaws much greater than hers, it is up to her to whip them into shape and remind them of the rules society has placed upon them as “normal” beings.

Learning to be evil can wait. For now, Vignette is content with her place in Earth: the straight man, the righteous friend, and the kind-hearted soul.
Astolfo (Fate Series)Show
Knights do not gallop on white horses. They swoop in from the sky on griffons!

As a servant, Astolfo has more than enough tricks and gear in his arsenal to make him one of, if not, the most unpredictable character in the fray. He may not be the strongest servant, but he more than makes up for it with his wit and speed. Once he has the advantage, Astolfo will waste little time taking advantage of every possible opportunity to achieve victory.

Perhaps his greatest strength is his humbleness. Yes, he is as eager to obtain the Holy Grail as everyone else, but Astolfo treasures the bonds he has created with his comrades the most. He will do anything to protect his friends from harm, even sacrificing himself for his own definition of righteousness. Astolfo’s heart is as vast as the sky, willing to create friendships first before treating them otherwise.

In the name of Charlemagne, Astolfo is ready to take to the skies and spear his opponents head on. With his friends by his side, he will put everything on the line for victory.
Mordred (Fate Series)Show
They call her the King of Treason, but she claims she has done no wrong.

All this time, Mordred had looked up to her king, hoping to one day be by her king’s side and fight for what was right. When it was revealed that the king was her father, Mordred wasted little time trying to be accepted not only as a knight, but also as his child. When her father rejected her, Mordred slayed all who agreed and opposed him, showing her father just how tortured the people are about his reign.

When Mordred returned to the human world as a heroic spirit, it seemed obvious that her wish for the Holy Grail is to take the seat of the throne that should be hers. She has all the tools to make a good king. Powerful and stubborn, Mordred is one of the more dangerous spirits to go up against when dealing with raw power and sheer tenacity. There is a clear reason for her to raise her sword.

At the end of the day, Mordred’s ultimate wish is not only to be recognized, but also to relieve her father of his growing stress. She has seen from her perspective the things that her father has to do to maintain an image for the people. She may not be ready for the throne, but that is all the more reason to slowly take the next position of power not only as a knight, but also a child. If she can do anything to see her father smile, she would be content.

Until she is ready to clear the fog that covers her heart, Mordred will continue to plow her way to victory. Nothing will quench the ire of a child trying to relieve her family.
Amakusa Shirō Tokisada (Fate Series)Show
Is there such a thing as true peace?

For a long time, Amakusa Shirō Tokisada was searching for a way to end Holy Grail wars altogether due to the collateral damage they were doing to both the competitors and the innocent individuals caught in the middle of it all. Seeing the pain, torture, and disgust that manifested during these wars, it almost seems as though the grail encourages such actions. It appears that there was nothing he could do to stop this madness.

That is, until, he chose to participate in this game that he supposedly hates. In order to end this power, he will become a pawn to the grail in his own way and attempt to make it do his bidding. The same grail that he loathes he now praises. The same destruction he detest he now sympathizes. And if he can truly make the grail grant him his one wish, it would be to end everything for the sake of true peace.

On a path of no return, Shirō has already assembled the necessary pieces to make his ideals come true. If anyone is going to stop him, he or she will feel a wrath unlike any have seen. Nothing will stop him from setting his sights to his goals.
