Oh Ed, Ed, Ed... where to even start with Ed? Ed is probably the world's foremost hacker, and is not shy about using her talents to cause mischief. Yet, those who meet her in person would be justified to think she's a monkey in human form because she's insanely wacky and ceaselessly energetic. All that prowess comes from a rambunctious goofball who shows up to the party in aviator goggles, a very loose-fitting tank top, and violet bicycle shorts. Shoes and socks conspicuously absent from her garb, Ed prefers to run around in bare feet, mostly just for fun, but also because her toes are just as dexterous at a keyboard as her fingers and she can make good use of all twenty digits to outpace just about any other hackers she might bump into.

* CrazyAwesome: Single-handedly succeeds at nabbing a perp with a scooter, a pair of stink guns and an utter and complete lack of concern for her own safety. She is also capable of intimidating hardened criminals and bounty hunters by standing on all fours and growling at them.

* NiceGirl: Sure its buried underneath numerous layers of comical craziness, but deep down Ed is a very sweet and caring girl.

* BarefootPoverty: She was introduced with no shoes, hopped on the ''Bebop'' with no shoes, and [[spoiler:left the Bebop]] with no shoes. The only reason she even tried footwear was because it was insisted that she needed some outside in the scalding desert out of common sense, and even gifted a pair of shoes and socks, which she promptly rejected before even getting as far as putting the shoes on. She went out into the desert barefoot anyway without a care in the world, and it didn't phase her one bit. That's because she's basically adapted to living without shoes. For all we know between flashbacks and present day, ''[[UpToEleven this girl has gone barefoot her entire life]]''.

Yet, those who meet her in person would be justified to think she's a monkey in human form. All that prowess comes from a rambunctious goofball who shows up to the party in aviator goggles, a tank top, violet bicycle shorts, and downright permanently barefooted. A 13 year old demented genius, Ed was living alone on Earth and occasionally being hunted by the police when she [[ViewerGenderConfusion (he?...)]] first encountered the Bebop crew. The crew was chasing a bounty in a case where someone was believed to have hacked into an old KillSat and started using it to carve designs into the planet. Naturally, Ed was the prime suspect, but since Ed was aware of the Bebop crew and was a fan of theirs (oddly enough, since the crew manages to blow every bounty and live in PerpetualPoverty because of it), she [[ViewerGenderConfusion (he?...)]] let them in on a secret: the real perpetrator was the satellite itself, whose program had a degree of awareness, a fact that Ed had recently discovered. In return for giving them this information and helping them deal with the rogue satellite, Ed only asked to become a member of the Bebop crew, a proposition Faye agreed to without telling anyone and later tried to back out on. Unfortunately for Faye, hacking the Bebop's computer, controlling it by remote, and getting it to land where she wants it is not exactly a difficult task for Ed.

Spike is a slightly lazy, big eating, easy going sort who has used his skills honed from years as an assassin, gangster, and martial artist to become a bounty hunter. He's the type that always takes life easy except for when the adrenaline kicks in while taking down a bounty. And he certainly doesn't take anything personally or all that seriously... in fact, about the only thing that can spark an emotional reaction from him are the names Julia and Vicious. Much of the story is a series of slow revelations about Spike's past, why he has the skills that he does, who Julia and Vicious are, and why Spike has a ruthless enemy that will stop at nothing to kill him.

And he certainly doesn't take anything personally or all that seriously... in fact, about the only thing that can spark an emotional reaction from him are the names Julia and Vicious. Truth be told, Spike has endured so much heartache over the years that there's practically nothing left to care about but living from one payday to the next, and he's hardened like no other. Even a look into his eyes proves there are falsehoods about him that betray a mellow exterior, and that something is deeply wrong under the surface. Much of the story is a series of slow revelations about Spike's past, why he has the skills that he does, who Julia and Vicious are, and why Spike has a ruthless enemy that will stop at nothing to kill him.



The owner of the ''Bebop'' and perhaps the group's nominal leader, Jet Black is an ex-cop turn bounty hunter and by far the most old-fashioned, level-headed, and responsible member of the Bebop crew. He tends to come off as gruff, (and his height, muscular appearance and beard only add to the impression) but is quite the softy underneath with a surprising number of cultured habits (including raising bonsai trees, listening to jazz/blues music, cooking, reading classic literature, etc.) The heart and conscience of the crew, Jet has a tendency to do the right thing in all circumstances, even at cost to his own happiness. He can be too old-fashioned and controlling though, a fact which caused his lover Elisa to leave him during his days as a cop and sometimes makes him less than popular with the rest of the Bebop crew.

A retiring sort of person for good reason, Jet carries with him a few battle scars, most notably a robotic arm resulting from a brutal confrontation that cost him the original.



* ScarsAreForever: He suffered a massive laceration across his right eye that was so deep, he needed a metal brace implanted to keep part of his face from distending.



Faye always approaches the world from an angle: she believes the world and other people are out to hurt, use and exploit you, so it's best if you do it to them first. Anything is fair game to be used to get an advantage on people, including cunning, trickery, abusing the trust of others, her sexy good looks, and when all else fails, a ship loaded with machine guns and missiles. Despite her preference for deception, in a straight up fight Faye is quite competent, being a capable pilot, markswoman, and even her punch packs a wallop despite her slim frame. Her exact background is mysterious, and when pressed for answers about it she simply throws out one story after another, each more improbable than the last. When not taking down bounties, she tends to waste all her money gambling in an effort to get rich quick and pay off the ridiculously large debts that she has, which is just as mysterious as anything else about her past.

Encountered in the second episode, Ein is a "data dog" that was illegally researched and experimented on. Initially Ein was just supposed to be a tool to catch the episode's bounty, who had stolen Ein, but eventually, much to Spike's chagrin, Jet and Spike wound up keeping the dog on after things didn't quite work out in catching the bounty.
