INFECTIOUS FAD, DAMMIT. A MEME BUT NOT JUST A MEME. MEMES ARE ANY KIND OF INFECTIOUS IDEA.

- he blames me.
EITHER WAY!( You wanna play? Here are the rules. )
- Rising Hero
From Ouran High School Host Club
Honest without realizing how honest she is, kind without realizing how kind she is, oblivious to how much she is loved and cherished (for many different values of loved), Haruhi (no, not THAT Haruhi) was the emotional center of the Host Club and would likewise be the heroic heart of a Bliss Stage game. ("I'm just doing what any decent person would do," Haruhi said.
Derek blinked. "Do you know how rare decent people are, post-Bliss?")
Age: 16. Taking her from her first appearance.
- Comforting, or possibly Driven
Nibun No Ichi 1/2
Always more than willing to help his unrequited love (in Akane)... and more than willing to bury his misgivings about his rival (in Ranma) if he feels or his love convinces him that it's in her best interest. Always there with a comforting word, with training, with re-assurances, Ryoga will sacrifice all of himself for his love... if you can't stop him from doing so.
get him mad. Ever.("I... I can't do it!" Sara wailed. "My... my rapier can't deflect it, I... I can't..."
Privately, Ryouga thought, FUCK Keenan and FUCK the Witty Rapier, but only for a second. He sighed, and with a crank of a dial, reinforced the signal. "You can do it, Sara," he said, only a little sadly. "I l... Keenan loves you, and I trust you.")
Age: Not given, but likely 15-16. From the beginning of his story arc.
Alexander LuthorAuthority Figure
From Justice League (Unlimited)
The aliens... interrupted his business, to be sure, but he wasn't exactly SURPRISED by the invasion, just... by the tactics involved. Lex was always a believer in the power of the human spirit, and rather suspicious of anything Other. He's broadminded enough when it comes to non-Americans - he is, after all, originally of African decent (at least the JL/U version), but he has ISSUES with things not Human. Not to mention a Crazy Prepared paranoid streak. When the Bliss hit, his reaction was "Ah, attack through fatigue and/or dreams. Solution; my stasis/rejeuvenation chamber." When he had an alien brain, his reaction, likewise, was "Perhaps my dream scanning equipment would work well with this." It's good to be the CEO.
Age: Middle aged. Prior to meeting Superman, as he doesn't exist in this setting.
Hanako IkezawaSupporting Staff
From Katawa Shoujo
Horribly burned in an alien attack (Noxious Smokes and Fiery Rays, doncha know) that took out what family she had left - an attack that, perversely, she blames herself for - poor Hanako has managed to convince herself that she is an ugly person and a victim of circumstance, that no one would ever love her, and so she quietly cooks, cleans, and sorts through files, her head held low.
She is mistaken, of course. She is beautiful, and kind, and good, and the burns on her face are nowhere near as ugly as the rest of the world, let alone the aliens. If you could bring her out of her shell, then any kindness you could show her - kindness she needs - she would reward you for a thousandfold.
Age: High School age, and apparently a sophomore in the Japanese system. 15-16 is my guess. Prior to meeting Hisao.
