Tiers of a Waifu

The Formative Tier

In cataloging the various characters on this site, I noticed that most of my favorites fell into just a few different archetypes - and realized I could trace those archetypes back to a small handful of characters that were important to me in my preadolescence.

As an adult, the traits I find attractive have been defined more by reality than by fiction. But the effect of these formative experiences can be seen throughout this site.

The below characters are listed on their own works pages on the “Formative Tier”, defined as “Characters I was exposed to when quite young that had significant impact on what kind of women I found attractive.” But I thought it was worth gathering them here as well to present a more complete picture.
