Chrono Reflections - Children of Zeal (TV Tropes version)
« on: December 21, 2018, 04:24:05 pm »
A bit of a rebranding of my Reflections "project". I've decided to separate this saga into three stories in order to better organize the tropes and get rid of post clutter (hopefully).

This topic is dedicated to tropes of the first story, Children of Zeal (formerly known as Before the Fall).

As with the original topic, I'll be adding stuff sporadically, as well as moving tropes from the original topic to here.

The things you learn in hindsight.

[Main Characters]

- [Cain Cray]

Blade on a Stick

Eye Scream - Dalton leaves him with a nasty scar over his left eye during their battle in the Ocean Palace.

Pay Evil Unto Evil - Even before crossing the Despair (and Moral) Event Horizon, Cain was a firm believer of this practice.

- [Schala Zeal]

Black and White Morality

Suicidal Pacifism

Used to Be a Sweet Kid

- [Alphard Zeal]

- [Janus Zeal]

- [Abel Lorre]

Only Sane Man

Sacrificial Lion

- [Melchior]

[Villains]

- [Dalton]

Complete Monster

The Dragon - To Lord Cray, then to Queen Zeal after his 'promotion'.

- [Samaela Zeal]

Start of Darkness

- [Duke Cray]

Archnemesis Dad - Cain's.

Hate Sink - Not only is he responsible for nearly everything that went wrong in Cain's life, he is one of the major factors responsible for Zeal society's eventual moral decay.

Karmic Death - Killed by the very son whose life he tried to destroy without even as much as an acknowledgement.

Kick the Son of a Bitch - As monstrous as committing genocide upon Zeal is, one cannot help but cheer when Cain spears this guy through the neck at the end of his rampage without even batting an eye.

Kill the Poor - He is the man responsible for society driving the Earthbound Ones to the frozen surface.

Maternal Death? Blame the Child - If one thing is absolutely clear about Lord Cray, it is that he loved his wife far more than he did his son.

No Name Given - He is only referred to as Lord Cray or Duke Cray. According to Word of God, giving him a name would have humanized him.

Offing the Offspring

You Should Have Died Instead - His dying words before Cain finishes him off.
