100% Achievement Guide
By Jedo
This is a short guide that will hopefully help you get 100% in this wonderful game. It was made possible thanks to the active community that crawls the game's hub! If you liked this guide, please rate/favorite/subscribe and maybe even check out my other guides!

Do note that instead of describing every specific detail for each achievement, I aimed to show how to get them by listing one or a few for each playthrough that I did. Please do let me know how this works out for the purposes of this guide. If there are any improvements to be made, I am definitely open to them!

Playthrough #1 (CleverGirl/Undertones/GoodJob)
Clever Girl
Convince your mentor to listen.



This achievement is unlocked by picking Rebel > Caution > Remind him of the militaristic... > Show him your determination > Deconstruct his plan > For a moral cause (Source)

Undertones




Good Job!
Way to take responsibility.


These 2 other achievements unlocked at the end on the same playthrough as Clever Girl.
Playthrough #2 (Follower/Damned)
Follower
Listen to your mentor.


Choosing to Follow Cyrus in the first decision point will unlock this achievement.




Damned if you do, Damned if you don't
Darn.


Thanks to alexrdavies for the following tip.

Also, I believe "Damned if you do, Damned if you don't" doesn't always come with your ending #2 - instead, it's whenever you've seen *both* the major endings.
Playthrough #3 (FoulMood/RoleReversal/Woman)
Foul Mood
Tell off your mentor and boss him around.


*** Note: Make a save file before you pick 'Force Cyrus to listen.' ***

To get this achievement, pick Rebel > Inform him that this is awful. > Remind him of the speech he did not listen to. > Insult him. > Deconstruct his plan. > For a moral cause. > Force Cyrus to listen. (Source)



Role Reversal
Boss around your mentor.


This was unlocked on the same playthrough as Foul Mood. I assume it's for forcing your mentor to listen at the last decision point.

If you read the note above then you can quickly get A Woman of Her Word.

A Woman of Her Word
Respect your conditions.


Load the decision point shown in the screenshot above and instead of forcing him to listen, pick 'Don't.'
Playthrough #4 (LAW)
I AM THE LAW
This is how we're going to do things.


The choices to get I AM THE LAW are Rebel > Inform him that this is awful. > Remind him of the militaristic border country: Fehrdia. > Insult him. > Deconstruct his plan. > For a just cause. > Force Cyrus to listen. (Source)
Playthrough #5 (Rebel)
Rebel
You don't need a reason


The path I took to get rebel was to avoid talking about the important points and used personal attacks on Cyrus instead. As an example, instead of pointing out valid arguments, I questioned his self-confidence. I think the most important part in getting this achievement is to not give an answer on decision point #6.

Rebel > Inform him that this is awful. > Remind him of the speech he didn't listen to. > Question the confidence he has in himself. > Deconstruct his plan. > No answer. > Force Cyrus to listen.
Playthrough #6 (Earthen Paragon)
Earthen Paragon
By the book, through and through.


The decisions to unlock this achievement are Rebel > Inform him that this is awful. > Remind him of the speech he did not listen to. > Show him your detemination. > Deconstruct his plan. > For a just cause, --> Don't. (Source)
