[[folder:Axel Thurston]]
[[quoteright:338:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Axel_Thurston_3512.png]]
Renton's strict yet loving grandfather.

->Voiced by: Creator/TakeshiAono (JP), Creator/SteveKramer (EN)
----
%%* BadassGrandpa
%%* CoolOldGuy
* CrazyPrepared: In the manga, he tells Holland to go to work while throwing a wrench from his toolkit at his head that's ''specifically'' labeled "For Holland".
* GadgeteerGenius: The biggest in the world.
* GoKartingWithBowser: He and Dominic got along really well, even though Dominic was still on the villain team at the time. He even taught Dominic how to fix his bike, and Dominic promised to check up on his grandson. Then again, he never finds out what side Dominic was on at the time.
%%* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* OutlivingOnesOffspring: Both his son and granddaughter are gone, hence why he's initially not too eager about Renton's thirst for adventure, fearing that he'll lose him as well.
%%* PapaWolf
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Diane Thurston]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/diane_thurston.png]]

Renton's long lost sister and Holland's ex-girlfriend.

->Voiced by: Creator/SakikoTamagawa (JP), Peggy O'Neal (EN)
----
* ChekhovMIA: A defining part of the series is Diane and her disappearance's effect on Renton and Holland. [[spoiler:It is revealed that she had a relationship with Holland and somehow found her way into the control cluster with her father.]]
* DatingWhatDaddyHates: Or what Granddaddy hates, that is. Suffice to say that Axel didn't approve of Holland.
* DemotedToExtra: In the manga, Diane is a much less significant character. Diane is merely mentioned to have left home and her disappearance is not relevant to the plot. Holland's close relationship with Diane also disappears from the narrative and Holland has a mentor-student relationship with Adrock Thurston instead.
* TheFaceless: Her face isn't shown for the first 35 episodes. Under many different circumstances, her face in flashbacks and photographs is always covered.
* FirstLove: To Holland.
* MarriedToTheJob: She was obsessed with her father's research; so much that it affected her relationship with Holland.
* PromotionToParent: She and Axel were the ones who raised Renton after Adroc's death.

[[folder:Charles and Ray Beams]]

* BeautyMark: Ray has one under her right eye.
* BerserkButton: Ray was cool and collected when [[spoiler:she was trying to take Renton and holding Eureka and the kids hostage to get him to cooperate]].

And both Ray and Hamon [[spoiler:get their own deaths in the following episode trying to avenge their fallen husbands]].
* ForgottenFallenFriend: Enemy, technically, but this trope is averted either way. The characters who knew them show these two weren't easily forgotten.

* HappilyMarried: For instance, when Charles meets Renton he points out how hot his wife is.
* HotbloodedSideburns: Charles has them.

* {{Yandere}}: Ray is a MamaBear variety.
* YouMonster: Ray refers to Eureka as one.

[[folder:William B. Baxter]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/snapshot_dvd_01_10_2013_01_10_00_05_58.jpg]]
William B. "Will" Baxter is a young man living in the overgrown ruins of a town near Gearnus City with his wife Martha, who is suffering from the Desperation Disease.

->Voiced by: Toshio Furukawa (JP), Keith Silverstein (EN)
----
* TheBusCameBack: [[spoiler:After Dewey launches his plan to destroy the Scub Coral with Oratorio Number 8, the impact of the attack causes fragments of the Scub Coral to destroy towers across the planet and send debris flying. The debris begins falling across the planet, with William watching the falling debris fly overhead his farm and turns to see Martha fully conscious due to the Command Cluster being destroyed, standing and smiling at him as his farm is engulfed in an explosion from the debris, killing them both.]]
* EmbarrassingMiddleName: Which is why he doesn't tell Renton what "B" stands for.
* HappilyMarried: Despite Martha having Desperation Disease, she and William have a happy and intimate marriage.
* MysteriousMiddleInitial: William doesn't tell Renton what the "B" in his name stands for because it's an [[EmbarrassingMiddleName embarrassing one.]]
* NiceGuy: Cemented in him helping a collapsed Renton to his devotion to his wife.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: Will was the one who taught Renton the facts of nature and love; to really love and be with someone, he needs to keep his word and face the hardships in front of him. When Will asked Renton if there was someone he wanted to be with if the world ever came to an end, Renton immediately realized he wanted to reconcile with Eureka no matter what she thought of him and began to mature more.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Martha Baxter]]
[[quoteright:130:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/martha_baxter_18246.jpg]]
The wife of William B. Baxter. She suffers from what Renton first identifies as "Desperation Disease."

->Voiced by: N/A
----
* TheBusCameBack: [[spoiler:When the control cluster was destroyed by Oratorio Number 8, her consciousness was brought back to her body which allowed her to regain control of her body. Forced out of her comma like state she walks over to the door of their house and looks at William and they both smile right before they are killed when the farm is crushed from debris from the recently destroyed Oratorio Number 8.]]
* EmotionlessGirl: Justified since she's suffering from Desperation Disease.
* HappilyMarried: Despite Martha having Desperation Disease, she and William have a happy and intimate marriage.
* IllGirl: Martha has Desperation Disease.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Master Norb]]
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Master_Norb_6321.jpg]]
A powerful Vodarac priest.

->Voiced by: Creator/RikiyaKoyama (JP), Creator/JunFukuyama (JP, young), Creator/JamiesonPrice (EN), Creator/SamRiegel (EN, young)
----
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: [[spoiler:The final scene of the series implies that he, along with Sakuya and various other people who merged with the Scub Coral, leave with some of the Scub Coral that departs from the planet.]]
* BunnyEarsLawyer: For a venerated holy man, he sure as hell breaks the mold like you wouldn't believe.
* TheChosenOne: In the past, he was chosen by Sakuya.
%%* CoolOldGuy
* FailureKnight: Part of his backstory, to an extent.
* {{Gasshole}}: Crops up whenever he's dragged into religion vs. science discussions, such as ones that bring up elements like the Vodarac, Coralisn. or Sub-Coralian. Tends to coincide and overlay with ObfuscatingStupidity.
* InterspeciesRomance: With Sakuya.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Don't be fooled by his love for pizza.
%%* OldMaster
%%* SacrificialLion
%%* SmokingIsCool
* StarCrossedLovers: With Sakuya.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sakuya]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5286810387_5a6bce2776.jpg]]

Eureka's predecessor. Because she was a girl of mysterious power, the religious authority of Vodarac thought she was some sort of messiah and placed her in the central part of the temple. They banned any disciple from speaking to her, and allowed very few select disciples to care for her in a highly reverent, if sterile, manner. For forty years since her initial appearance, she had no significant contact with anyone. This changed when Norb was assigned to care for her.

->Voiced by: Creator/AkikoYajima (JP), Jennie Kwan (EN)
----
%%* TheAgeless
* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler:She was turned into a giant lotus flower after she and Norb traveled to the Scub Coral.]]
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: [[spoiler:At the end of the series, the Nirvash states that Sakuya and the other humans who fused with the Scub will go to the universe beyond the rift in the Great Wall.]]
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: She fell in love with Norb because he was the first person to truly interact with her rather than merely worship her.
%%* TheChooserOfTheOne
* DefrostingIceQueen: She was pretty much an EmotionlessGirl at first, but [[spoiler:Norb]] managed to defrost her.
%%* ExoticEyeDesigns
%%* FacialMarkings
* FlowerMotifs: The lotus.
* HumanAlien: A humanoid Coralian, just like Eureka.
* InterspeciesRomance: With Norb.
%%* OdangoHair
* OlderThanSheLooks: Is ''at least'' Norb's age, but appears younger than Eureka when we see her. Justified as this is probably how she chooses to project herself, and [[spoiler: it was how she looked when she, well, turned into a giant flower]].
* ThePollyanna: Given her backstory, she has every right to be miserable, but she's easily one of the friendliest and most optimistic characters around from what little we see of her.
%%* PurpleEyes
* StarCrossedLovers: With Norb.
* WhenSheSmiles: Norb says he fell in love with her the moment he saw her smile for the first time.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: She has lavender hair.

!!''New Wave'' and ''New Vision'' Characters

[[folder:Sumner Sturgeon]]
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/104_49369_eureka03.jpg]]
The male protagonist of the video game prequels ''New Wave'' and ''New Vision''. After graduating New Wave Academy, a school for future military recruits, he and most of his friends joined the Sawyer Team KLF group. His beliefs and love for Ruri convince him to rebel against the military at the end of the first game, and [[spoiler: deliver a captured Nirvash to Holland and Eureka]].

In the second game, he, Ruri, and Moondoggie fight against the Azure group and corrupted members of the military, including some of Sumner's old friends, to prevent mass destruction.

Renton's strict yet loving grandfather.

->Voiced by: Creator/HiroShimono Creator/TakeshiAono (JP), Creator/SamRiegel Creator/SteveKramer (EN)



* TheAce: Explicitly referred to as the ace of the Sawyer Team.
* AcePilot: The star of New Wave (and then the Sawyer Team), after Ruri leaves. Even years later, he hasn't lost his touch and ranks among the best.
* {{Adorkable}}: He can be endearingly flustered and/or enthusiastic. Less so in ''New Vision'', having grown up a bit, but it's still there at times.
* BattleCouple: With Ruri in ''New Vision''.
* BeenThereShapedHistory: [[spoiler:He was the one who delivered the Nirvash to the Gekkostate.]]
* BlackSheep: Of the famous Sturgeon family, after he chose to quit officer academy and join New Wave, and then doubly so after he defected from the military.
* BrokenAce: Becomes this by ''New Vision''. Compared to the AcePilot before who thought everything was new and shiny and amazing, the LegallyDead RetiredBadass he's turned into admits that lifting is now just another way to keep himself fed, and he's beginning to forget how he used to feel back in the old days.
* BrokenPedestal: In ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', his favourite brother Torino becomes this after Sumner witnesses him shooting (and killing) the brother of one of Sumner's friends.
* TheCameo: Sumner and Ruri make a brief appearance in the anime. He also appears in the manga's epilogue, in a panel alongside [[CanonImmigrant Ruri]], Moondoggie, and Gidget.
* DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife: His main goal, and part of why he keeps chasing after/sticking with Ruri despite her occasionally questionable treatment of him, as he hopes that being with her will help guide him.
* TheDitherer: His main problem: he doesn't really know what he wants to do.
* EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether: He attended the same high school as Gillian and Steven. This being Sumner, he doesn't even remember them.
* ExtremeDoormat: Starts off as one for his family in the ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl''.
* FakingTheDead: Albeit not by choice. After defecting from the military, he's declared officially dead rather than a traitor so as to not shame the Sturgeon name, so he just rolls with it.
* {{Fanboy}}: It's somewhat of a RunningGag that he's an LFO fanboy, weirding some people out. He also idolizes B.B. as a teenager, with that respect showing itself even as an adult where he uses the same moniker in a lifting tournament once.
* ForgottenFirstMeeting: With... just about the entire cast barring Hooky. Shaun and Pez tried to mug him once (though they don't seem to remember him either), and he utterly fails to retain any info about Gillian and Steven's existences during the years they attend school together. And, of course, there's the entire mess with Ruri.
* GoodIsNotSoft: He's a genuinely nice and compassionate guy, but when push comes to shove? He ends up killing a fair amount of former allies provided they tried to kill him first.
* GoodLookingPrivates: One of the family servants notes how handsome he is in his military uniform.
* GrewASpine: This is especially noticeable in the Japanese version, where he switches from ''boku'' [[JapanesePronouns to the more assertive]] ''ore'' by the end of ''New Wave''.
* HeelFaceTurn: Mostly for Ruri, hence why he's somewhat bitter in ''New Vision'', believing that she ditched him afterwards.
* IHaveNoSon: His family pulls this on him after the events of ''New Wave''. You don't get much more disowned than being declared LegallyDead so that the family can save face.
* IgnoreTheFanservice: In ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', he never seems to acknowledge that he knows a ''very'' attractive older woman whom his (more hormonal) friends immediately fall for. According to her, it's because of his SingleTargetSexuality for B.B.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: ''God'', it's almost painful to see how oblivious he is around Gillian.
* IWillFindYou: His objective at the end of ''New Wave'', after losing everything, is to find Ruri.
* JadeColoredGlasses: A mild version in ''New Vision'', in that he's still rather idealistic, but also a fair bit grumpier thanks to his experiences in ''New Wave''.
* JerkassRealization: He initially assumes his classmates are shallow jerks who only see him as a Sturgeon, before realizing that ''he'' was the shallow jerk for immediately dismissing them like that based on an ultimately false assumption.
* LegallyDead: After the events of ''New Wave''. See FakingTheDead above.
* LonelyRichKid: Played with. At age fourteen, he's rich and he's mostly friendless, but it's somewhat self-imposed as he automatically assumes everyone only focuses on his family name. Once he realizes that he's wrong and lets himself become part of a social circle, he's much happier.
* LoveAtFirstSight: He became infatuated with Ruri since the first time he saw her... not that he knows that it was her.
* LoveMartyr: For Ruri, to an extent. Her being TroubledButCute doesn't do wonders for their relationship and Sumner knows it, but he's devoted to her all the same.
* MassiveNumberedSiblings: He has five older brothers. It probably says something about his family that he doesn't seem to be close with any of them but Torino.
* MilitaryBrat: However, rather than staying in officer academy like his father wanted, he joined New Wave.
* NiceGuy: In ''New Wave'', compared to his SugarAndIcePersonality in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'' and the more [[OnlySaneMan beleaguered attitude]] he develops in ''New Vision''.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Claims he was never competing with Hooky--before insisting that he ''won'' that last 'tie', thank you very much.
* ObliviousToLove: To Gillian's.
* OnlySaneMan: Between him, Ruri, and Moondoggie.
-->'''Sumner:''' There are three of us here, but it doesn't matter. I'm still alone. I guess what I'm trying to say is why don't these two DO ANY OF THE WORK!?
* TheQuietOne: Used to be this. It was part of what attracted Gillian to him.
* RetiredBadass: The retirement was forced on him, what with being LegallyDead, but he amounts to this in the beginning of ''New Vision'', with both Wes and Moondoggie bemoaning how all of his talent as an AcePilot is going to waste.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Without even realizing it! Utter lack of interest in anyone else aside, he was mildly obsessive over both B.B. and the girl he saw once by chance, as others note, but ends up with Ruri--except they're all the same person.
* StepfordSmiler: Develops into one in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'' upon realizing how empty his life is, having everything decided for him by his family.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: As a teenager, due to believing his classmates only saw him as a Sturgeon. Around others and once he realized that wasn't the case for everyone, he's significantly warmer.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: Frequent in the beginning of ''New Vision''. Unlike some of the other [[AcePilot Ace Pilots]] on this page, Sumner falls off the radar, so most people assume he's your run-of-the-mill punk who pilots an LFO... without realizing that he used to be one of the military's ''best''.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Moondoggie. Sumner's clearly exasperated with him half the time, but is good friends with him nevertheless.

[[folder:Ruri]]
[[quoteright:196:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/h_104_49369_eureka04jpg.jpg]]
Sumner's love interest. In ''New Wave'', she left New Wave Academy after learning about the military's insidious motives. Although her efforts to rebel lead her to aligning with black market dealers, she eventually reunites with Sumner long enough to help him realize what path he should follow.

In ''New Vision'', Ruri is able to meet Sumner again, and they ([[AndZoidberg and Moondoggie]]) try to stop a military scheme that is driving their own pilots insane. After the conflict is over, she and Sumner remain together.

Ruri also made an appearance in the manga adaptation. Here, she is a spy for Gekko State in the military, and helps them fight Dewey's plans, as well as facilitate in Dominic's HeelFaceTurn.

* ActionGirl: She can hold her own both in an LFO and outside of one.
* BadassAdorable: A GenkiGirl who's happy to brawl whether in an LFO or not.
* BareYourMidriff: Both her outfit in ''New Wave'' and in ''New Vision''.
* BattleCouple: With Sumner in ''New Vision''.
* BigEater: If the ramen-eating competition is any indication.
* BluebirdOfHappiness: In ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', she's associated with this for Gillian's little sister (with the bluebird itself being her AnimalMotif back then).
* BoobsOfSteel: The least fragile out of all the heroines in the E7 world, and has by far the largest chest.
* BrokenAce: She was TheAce of New Wave before Sumner, but possesses a deep-rooted insecurity of being dependent on others.
* BrokenBird: Not immediately obvious, but she's got a fair amount of issues underneath her energetic personality.
* TheCameo: Briefly appears in the anime alongside Sumner.
* CanonImmigrant: Started as a main character in the prequel video games (that are prequels to the anime) and then became a main character in the manga, which is an adaptation of the anime (albeit one that goes in a completely different direction).
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: Wears one as part of her New Wave uniform, and unlike Gillian, she's happy to wield it to its full potential.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: She's grown up on the streets and in poverty.
* DefectorFromDecadence: She left the military of her own volition once she realized how far the corruption ran.
* DoesNotLikeMen: Presumably due to growing up in the slums, she's not hugely fond of the male gender in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', citing them all to be idiots (or, to Gillian, perverts), though she doesn't outwardly express it much and seems to later abandon that mindset either way.
* EtTuBrute: Flame's--that is, her old mentor's--betrayal sends her into a HeroicBSOD.
* FieryRedhead: Her hair's a mix between red and brown (though considered red in the manga), and she's certainly got a loud personality to match.
* GenkiGirl: Though it occasionally veers into ObfuscatingStupidity.
* HeroicBSOD:
** As a teenager, she falls into a depressed mood for quite some time after being outed as a girl as B.B.
** Upon realizing Flame's true nature, though she quickly snaps out of it.
* HoneyTrap: She's not above seducing her targets to win their trust before she double-crosses them.
* ImportantHaircut: In ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', where she cuts her hair as acceptance of her femininity with it now being too short to stuff her under cap.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Though she's lost the grumpiness from her teenage days (in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl''), she's still prone to being flighty and inconsiderate. And like with Holland and Talho, said lack of consideration isn't exactly healthy for her love life.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Played straight in ''New Wave'', as the one who forces Sumner out of his comfort zone. Subverted in ''New Vision'', where it becomes clear that she's got her own problems.
* MasterOfDisguise: She's sure fond of it, in any case.
* TheMole: What she was originally in the manga, before making her true allegiance known
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Typically to hide her true motives.
* PaperThinDisguise: Her disguises when she shows up before Sumner are half-hearted at best, and yet he ''still'' can't recognize her, even while ''actively thinking about her''. Granted, this is probably more because of how Sumner is than anything.
* PassionateSportsGirl: In ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', she ''lives'' to lift. Her passion dies down when she no longer needs it to escape her life, but she still has a fondness for it.
* SelectiveObliviousness: She completely refuses to believe that Flame could be a villain until she has unrefutable evidence that he tried to have her killed.
* ShortTank: The {{Tomboy}} LoveInterest to Sumner with the outfit to match.
* SpiritedCompetitor: She shows signs of this when initially refusing to take on a job as a pizza delivery guy... until she hears that they've got a 5-minute speed record.
* StreetUrchin: She grew up on the streets, and as she notes that she can't remember a time when she wasn't independent, it's likely she's been an orphan for a long time.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Especially jarring in the manga, where where she first appears as a conservatively dressed scientist, then switches to her ''New Wave'' outfit.
* SweetPollyOliver: As a teenager in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', since girls weren't allowed to participate in the lifting tournament.
* TankTopTomboy: In ''New Vision''.
* TheTease: She can be flirty at times.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Tomboy to Gillian's Girly Girl.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: After embracing her femininity, she enjoys things like make-up and doesn't mind wearing mini skirts, but she's still a tomboy at heart, through and through.
* TomboyishPonytail: In ''New Vision''.
* TookALevelInCheerfulness: Over the course of ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', she goes from a bitter punk to a GenkiGirl.
* TroubledButCute: A female version, which puts a strain on her and Sumner's relationship, particularly in ''New Vision''. As Sumner notes, most guys wouldn't even think of kissing a girl like her.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: To the man who tried to assault her in prison while she was sleeping: suffice to say the guy noticed the "boy" was lacking certain... ''parts''.
* WasItAllALie: Gillian asks this after discovering that Ruri is a girl and (falsely) assuming that she's given up lifting, though she admits afterwards that she wasn't really talking to Ruri (but rather venting her feelings about Sumner, having seen some of him in Ruri).

* EtTuBrute: Flame's--that is, her old mentor's--betrayal sends her into a HeroicBSOD.
* FieryRedhead: Her hair's a mix between red and brown (though considered red in the manga), and she's certainly got a loud personality to match.

They also contrast in color scheme: Anemone is red (violent and emotional) and Eureka is blue (reserved and calm). [[spoiler:Subverted in the end. She became the way she was because of the constant inhuman expreiments forced on her by Dewey, who she really hates. That and her HeelFaceTurn at the end shows she never was "evil".]]

* EnemyMine: He and Renton are forced to work together to save Eureka and Anemone.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: "Evil" is a little much for him, but he does has someone he cares about: [[MoralityPet Anemone]]. He's as equally devoted and in love with her as Renton is to Eureka.

* OfficialCouple: With Anemone.
* OnlyFriend: He is the closest to Anemone (sans Gulliver) and he genuinely cares about her.
* OrphansOrdeal: As revealed in Episode 44. It helps to explain why he's so devoted to Anemone - hers is the closest connection he has with another person.

In the second game, he, Ruri, and Moondoggie fight against the Azure group and corrupted members of the military, including some of Sumner's old friends, to prevent mass destruction.

* TheAce: Explicitly referred to as the ace of the Sawyer Team.
* AcePilot: The star of New Wave (and then the Sawyer Team), after Ruri leaves. Even years later, he hasn't lost his touch and ranks among the best.
* {{Adorkable}}: He can be endearingly flustered and/or enthusiastic. Less so in ''New Vision'', having grown up a bit, but it's still there at times.

* BeenThereShapedHistory: [[spoiler:He was the one who delivered the Nirvash to the Gekkostate.]]
* BlackSheep: Of the famous Sturgeon family, after he chose to quit officer academy and join New Wave, and then doubly so after he defected from the military.
* BrokenAce: Becomes this by ''New Vision''. Compared to the AcePilot before who thought everything was new and shiny and amazing, the LegallyDead RetiredBadass he's turned into admits that lifting is now just another way to keep himself fed, and he's beginning to forget how he used to feel back in the old days.
* BrokenPedestal: In ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', his favourite brother Torino becomes this after Sumner witnesses him shooting (and killing) the brother of one of Sumner's friends.
* TheCameo: Sumner and Ruri make a brief appearance in the anime. He also appears in the manga's epilogue, in a panel alongside [[CanonImmigrant Ruri]], Moondoggie, and Gidget.
* DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife: His main goal, and part of why he keeps chasing after/sticking with Ruri despite her occasionally questionable treatment of him, as he hopes that being with her will help guide him.
* TheDitherer: His main problem: he doesn't really know what he wants to do.
* EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether: He attended the same high school as Gillian and Steven. This being Sumner, he doesn't even remember them.
* ExtremeDoormat: Starts off as one for his family in the ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl''.
* FakingTheDead: Albeit not by choice. After defecting from the military, he's declared officially dead rather than a traitor so as to not shame the Sturgeon name, so he just rolls with it.
* {{Fanboy}}: It's somewhat of a RunningGag that he's an LFO fanboy, weirding some people out. He also idolizes B.B. as a teenager, with that respect showing itself even as an adult where he uses the same moniker in a lifting tournament once.
* ForgottenFirstMeeting: With... just about the entire cast barring Hooky. Shaun and Pez tried to mug him once (though they don't seem to remember him either), and he utterly fails to retain any info about Gillian and Steven's existences during the years they attend school together. And, of course, there's the entire mess with Ruri.
* GoodIsNotSoft: He's a genuinely nice and compassionate guy, but when push comes to shove? He ends up killing a fair amount of former allies provided they tried to kill him first.
* GoodLookingPrivates: One of the family servants notes how handsome he is in his military uniform.
* GrewASpine: This is especially noticeable in the Japanese version, where he switches from ''boku'' [[JapanesePronouns to the more assertive]] ''ore'' by the end of ''New Wave''.
* HeelFaceTurn: Mostly for Ruri, hence why he's somewhat bitter in ''New Vision'', believing that she ditched him afterwards.
* IHaveNoSon: His family pulls this on him after the events of ''New Wave''. You don't get much more disowned than being declared LegallyDead so that the family can save face.
* IgnoreTheFanservice: In ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', he never seems to acknowledge that he knows a ''very'' attractive older woman whom his (more hormonal) friends immediately fall for. According to her, it's because of his SingleTargetSexuality for B.B.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: ''God'', it's almost painful to see how oblivious he is around Gillian.
* IWillFindYou: His objective at the end of ''New Wave'', after losing everything, is to find Ruri.
* JadeColoredGlasses: A mild version in ''New Vision'', in that he's still rather idealistic, but also a fair bit grumpier thanks to his experiences in ''New Wave''.
* JerkassRealization: He initially assumes his classmates are shallow jerks who only see him as a Sturgeon, before realizing that ''he'' was the shallow jerk for immediately dismissing them like that based on an ultimately false assumption.
* LegallyDead: After the events of ''New Wave''. See FakingTheDead above.
* LonelyRichKid: Played with. At age fourteen, he's rich and he's mostly friendless, but it's somewhat self-imposed as he automatically assumes everyone only focuses on his family name. Once he realizes that he's wrong and lets himself become part of a social circle, he's much happier.
* LoveAtFirstSight: He became infatuated with Ruri since the first time he saw her... not that he knows that it was her.
* LoveMartyr: For Ruri, to an extent. Her being TroubledButCute doesn't do wonders for their relationship and Sumner knows it, but he's devoted to her all the same.
* MassiveNumberedSiblings: He has five older brothers. It probably says something about his family that he doesn't seem to be close with any of them but Torino.
* MilitaryBrat: However, rather than staying in officer academy like his father wanted, he joined New Wave.
* NiceGuy: In ''New Wave'', compared to his SugarAndIcePersonality in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'' and the more [[OnlySaneMan beleaguered attitude]] he develops in ''New Vision''.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Claims he was never competing with Hooky--before insisting that he ''won'' that last 'tie', thank you very much.
* ObliviousToLove: To Gillian's.
* OnlySaneMan: Between him, Ruri, and Moondoggie.
-->'''Sumner:''' There are three of us here, but it doesn't matter. I'm still alone. I guess what I'm trying to say is why don't these two DO ANY OF THE WORK!?
* TheQuietOne: Used to be this. It was part of what attracted Gillian to him.
* RetiredBadass: The retirement was forced on him, what with being LegallyDead, but he amounts to this in the beginning of ''New Vision'', with both Wes and Moondoggie bemoaning how all of his talent as an AcePilot is going to waste.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Without even realizing it! Utter lack of interest in anyone else aside, he was mildly obsessive over both B.B. and the girl he saw once by chance, as others note, but ends up with Ruri--except they're all the same person.
* StepfordSmiler: Develops into one in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'' upon realizing how empty his life is, having everything decided for him by his family.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: As a teenager, due to believing his classmates only saw him as a Sturgeon. Around others and once he realized that wasn't the case for everyone, he's significantly warmer.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: Frequent in the beginning of ''New Vision''. Unlike some of the other [[AcePilot Ace Pilots]] on this page, Sumner falls off the radar, so most people assume he's your run-of-the-mill punk who pilots an LFO... without realizing that he used to be one of the military's ''best''.

Sumner's love interest. In ''New Wave'', she left New Wave Academy after learning about the military's insidious motives. Although her efforts to rebel lead her to aligning with black market dealers, she eventually reunites with Sumner long enough to help him realize what path he should follow.

In ''New Vision'', Ruri is able to meet Sumner again, and they ([[AndZoidberg and Moondoggie]]) try to stop a military scheme that is driving their own pilots insane. After the conflict is over, she and Sumner remain together.

Ruri also made an appearance in the manga adaptation. Here, she is a spy for Gekko State in the military, and helps them fight Dewey's plans, as well as facilitate in Dominic's HeelFaceTurn.

* AcePilot: As noted below, she was TheAce of New Wave until she left.
* ActionGirl: She can hold her own both in an LFO and outside of one.
* BadassAdorable: A GenkiGirl who's happy to brawl whether in an LFO or not.
* BareYourMidriff: Both her outfit in ''New Wave'' and in ''New Vision''.
* BattleCouple: With Sumner in ''New Vision''.
* BigEater: If the ramen-eating competition is any indication.
* BluebirdOfHappiness: In ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', she's associated with this for Gillian's little sister (with the bluebird itself being her AnimalMotif back then).
* BoobsOfSteel: The least fragile out of all the heroines in the E7 world, and has by far the largest chest.
* BrokenAce: She was TheAce of New Wave before Sumner, but possesses a deep-rooted insecurity of being dependent on others.
* BrokenBird: Not immediately obvious, but she's got a fair amount of issues underneath her energetic personality.
* TheCameo: Briefly appears in the anime alongside Sumner.
* CanonImmigrant: Started as a main character in the prequel video games (that are prequels to the anime) and then became a main character in the manga, which is an adaptation of the anime (albeit one that goes in a completely different direction).
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: Wears one as part of her New Wave uniform, and unlike Gillian, she's happy to wield it to its full potential.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: She's grown up on the streets and in poverty.
* DefectorFromDecadence: She left the military of her own volition once she realized how far the corruption ran.
* DoesNotLikeMen: Presumably due to growing up in the slums, she's not hugely fond of the male gender in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', citing them all to be idiots (or, to Gillian, perverts), though she doesn't outwardly express it much and seems to later abandon that mindset either way.
* EtTuBrute: Flame's--that is, her old mentor's--betrayal sends her into a HeroicBSOD.
* FieryRedhead: Her hair's a mix between red and brown (though considered red in the manga), and she's certainly got a loud personality to match.
* GenkiGirl: Though it occasionally veers into ObfuscatingStupidity.
* HeroicBSOD:
** As a teenager, she falls into a depressed mood for quite some time after being outed as a girl as B.B.
** Upon realizing Flame's true nature, though she quickly snaps out of it.
* HoneyTrap: She's not above seducing her targets to win their trust before she double-crosses them.
* ImportantHaircut: In ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', where she cuts her hair as acceptance of her femininity with it now being too short to stuff her under cap.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Though she's lost the grumpiness from her teenage days (in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl''), she's still prone to being flighty and inconsiderate. And like with Holland and Talho, said lack of consideration isn't exactly healthy for her love life.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Played straight in ''New Wave'', as the one who forces Sumner out of his comfort zone. Subverted in ''New Vision'', where it becomes clear that she's got her own problems.
* MasterOfDisguise: She's sure fond of it, in any case.
* TheMole: What she was originally in the manga, before making her true allegiance known
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Typically to hide her true motives.
* PaperThinDisguise: Her disguises when she shows up before Sumner are half-hearted at best, and yet he ''still'' can't recognize her, even while ''actively thinking about her''. Granted, this is probably more because of how Sumner is than anything.
* PassionateSportsGirl: In ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', she ''lives'' to lift. Her passion dies down when she no longer needs it to escape her life, but she still has a fondness for it.
* SelectiveObliviousness: She completely refuses to believe that Flame could be a villain until she has unrefutable evidence that he tried to have her killed.
* ShortTank: The {{Tomboy}} LoveInterest to Sumner with the outfit to match.
* SpiritedCompetitor: She shows signs of this when initially refusing to take on a job as a pizza delivery guy... until she hears that they've got a 5-minute speed record.
* StreetUrchin: She grew up on the streets, and as she notes that she can't remember a time when she wasn't independent, it's likely she's been an orphan for a long time.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Especially jarring in the manga, where where she first appears as a conservatively dressed scientist, then switches to her ''New Wave'' outfit.

* TankTopTomboy: In ''New Vision''.
* TheTease: She can be flirty at times.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Tomboy to Gillian's Girly Girl.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: After embracing her femininity, she enjoys things like make-up and doesn't mind wearing mini skirts, but she's still a tomboy at heart, through and through.
* TomboyishPonytail: In ''New Vision''.
* TookALevelInCheerfulness: Over the course of ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', she goes from a bitter punk to a GenkiGirl.
* TroubledButCute: A female version, which puts a strain on her and Sumner's relationship, particularly in ''New Vision''. As Sumner notes, most guys wouldn't even think of kissing a girl like her.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: To the man who tried to assault her in prison while she was sleeping: suffice to say the guy noticed the "boy" was lacking certain... ''parts''.
* WasItAllALie: Gillian asks this after discovering that Ruri is a girl and (falsely) assuming that she's given up lifting, though she admits afterwards that she wasn't really talking to Ruri (but rather venting her feelings about Sumner, having seen some of him in Ruri).

Eureka's predecessor. Because she was a girl of mysterious power, the religious authority of Vodarac thought she was some sort of messiah and placed her in the central part of the temple. They banned any disciple from speaking to her, and allowed very few select disciples to care for her in a highly reverent, if sterile, manner. For forty years since her initial appearance, she had no significant contact with anyone. This changed when Norb was assigned to care for her.

** In the manga, after Holland reveals the truth about his father.

Renton is enraged that the crew sees him as an immature baby whom they give no respect. Come several episodes later, he's had enough, blows his stack in a firefight, and slaughters a whole KLF squadron ''very'' horrifically.

* FreakinessShame: [[spoiler:When Eureka's Coralian attributes begin to manifest themselves, her left arm sheds its skin and she grows a pair of green, butterfly-like wings.

* AcePilot: One of the many things he's famous for.
* ActionDad: In a TeamDad sense for Gekkostate and in a ''literal'' sense when [[spoiler:Talho is pregnant with their child.]]
* AdaptationalHeroism: He is a ''lot'' less of a {{Jerkass}} and much more laid back in the manga. He only hit Renton once, and he arguably deserved it at the time.
* AloofBigBrother: He acts as this towards Renton.
* BadDreams: In one episode, he has a nightmare of the atrocities he committed while part of the SOF.
* BadassInCharge: The leader of Gekkostate who is an AcePilot, former military, and has NervesOfSteel.
* BigBrotherWorship: [[spoiler:He was said to have idolized Dewey and never realized the deep hatred his older brother harbored towards him. His affection for Dewey was such that Holland even joined the military with him, and was made a unit leader.]]
* BigGood: The leader of the main heroes.
* {{Bishounen}}: Mild case of this, despite his PermaStubble. PermaStubble which is all the more hilarious cause he's shown shaving in one episode.
* BrokenAce: Previously the ace of the SOF, and ''definitely'' broken, after everything he went through and did.
* BrokenPedestal: Mild case of this for Renton, who found Holland's image was somewhat more inflated than justified, even admitted by the man himself. [[RebuiltPedestal Eventually he becomes worthy of that hype through character development.]]
* TheCameo: He makes a brief appearance in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'' to compliment Sumner on his lifting.
* CainAndAbel: [[spoiler:The Abel to Dewey's Cain.]]
* CharacterDevelopment: By seasons 3 and 4, he becomes more mature and caring, due to him learning that he needs to face his problems rather than run away from them if he wants to help save the world and gain the trust and respect of others. He becomes very protective of the crew, particularly Renton and Eureka, to the point where he seems to favor them for important activities. When Talho tells him that she is pregnant with his child, he starts to take on a surrogate father role to the crew and he becomes more open and friendly with them.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: A soldier who was ordered to kill innocent people. [[spoiler:Before that, his parents were dead by the time he was a child. Afterwards, he had to find out that his older brother hated him.]]
* DeadlyUpgrade: Swaps to the 303 in the last act of the series, which requires extremely dangerous drugs just to pilot the thing.
* DeclarationOfProtection: After his CharacterDevelopment kicks in, he swears to do whatever it takes to protect Renton and Eureka.
* DefectorFromDecadence: In the past, when he betrayed the military.
* {{Determinator}}: In the manga, he ''will'' bring back the Amita Drive to Renton and Eureka, even if he has to crawl his way back after being attacked by [=TheEnd=].
* FamilialReveal: [[spoiler:His last name is Novak; he's the younger brother of [[BigBad Dewey Novak.]]]]
* FatalFlaw: A recurring theme in the middle portion of the series with Holland is his instinct to run away from his past and responsibility, using Eureka, Renton (in this case, physically and emotionally abusing him), and lifting as a way to escape, much to Talho's chagrin. Hell, it almost became a literal one when it almost lead Gekkostate straight into a State army trap that takes advantage of this tragic instinct of his until Renton and Eureka's actions and reunion saved the team. CharacterDevelopment helps get rid of this trait.
* AFatherToHisMen: Takes a while, but he grows into this over the course of the series.
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:It was Dewey's efforts to destroy the Scub Coral, and potentially the world, that caused Holland to personally set out to stop him by thinking he can partner with Eureka and unite the humans and Scub Coral to overthrow Dewey. Because of this, Dewey is indirectly responsible for Holland's initial indifference towards the crew, his obsession with Eureka, and bitter resentment towards Renton in the beginning.]]
* GoodIsNotNice: Holland is on the side of good for sure. However, he spends the first half of the series being a jerk to his crew (save Eureka and Talho), even being physically and emotionally abusive to Renton. Thankfully, [[CharacterDevelopment he gets over it]].
* GreenEyedMonster: Arguably the reason for some of his worst {{Jerkass}} moments. Once he gets over it, he is a much nicer guy.
* HeartbrokenBadass: He had a messy first relationship, which is one of many issues that led to the mess he is today.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: While not seen, his defection from the military in the video games (taking place a few years before the anime) has a fair amount of background importance. That said, Holland's story is already shown in the anime, aka the original adaptation; that is, as a hero in the main storyline, Holland's the HeroOfAnotherStory in the spin-off.
* HisOwnWorstEnemy: Let's face it, things would have work out much better in the first half of the series, had he learn to accept that there are ways for him to help save the world and stop Dewey, besides being Eureka's chosen partner, instead of always running away and letting his bitter feelings build up.
* {{Jerkass}}: At his worst moments, especially in the first half of the series.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: At his better moments, especially in the second half of the series, thanks to CharacterDevelopment.
* KickTheDog: [[SarcasmMode Slap the ignorant hero around, Holland! Such a great way to win his loyalty and impress your crew!]]
* TheLeader: He's the captain of Gekkostate.
* LivingLegend: By far and away one of the most famous people in the entire world.
* LaserGuidedKarma: As sad as it is, when you remember how much damage he's done to the crew, especially to Eureka and Renton, over the past two seasons, it is possible that his leg being wounded to the point where he may never be able to truly lift ride again, may be his comeuppance for the actions that lead to said wound.
* ManChild: {{Deconstructed}}. Holland's immature nature has him poorly handling his anger (i.e., emotionally and physically abusing Renton) and straining his relationships with Renton, Talho, and the rest of Gekkostate.
* TheMasochismTango: With Talho. They eventually work things out.
* PapaWolf: Turns more and more into this for Eureka as the series goes on. See Episode 38 for a particularly good example.
* ParentalSubstitute:
** Acts as a father figure to Eureka.
** In seasons 3 and 4, Holland adopts a somewhat secondary father figure to Renton and now treats him like a son.
* TheResenter: He resents Renton for his relationship with Eureka until the second season finale rolls around.
* ScreamingWarrior: Likes to scream while charging into the fray.
* SecondLove: To Talho, [[{{Implied}} possibly]]. [[spoiler:It's hinted near the end that she was in a previous relationship with Dewey, Holland's older brother, before becoming a couple with the latter.]]
* SelfFulfillingProphecy: Holland, attempting to deny Eureka's relationship with Renton, only ends up causing Renton to become TheChosenOne for Eureka regardless of his actions.
* SergeantRock: Sure, Holland might be a MAJOR asshole at times, but he's respected and even liked by the Gekkostate crew because he's competent, wouldn't have them do something he wouldn't do himself, and despite his outward {{Jerkass}} (especially in the first half of the series), is rather concerned for their welfare.
* ShamelessFanserviceGuy: While inside the Gekko he wears nothing but his underwear. Since the ship is his home, he doesn't see anything wrong with it.
* SmokingIsCool: In the manga and novels, he is a smoker, unlike his anime counterpart.
%%* SupportingLeader
* TeamDad: Stern, determined, calls the shots.
* TookALevelInKindness: In the anime, this is a major part of his CharacterDevelopment. He goes from a {{Jerkass}} ManChild to a mature, father-like figure to Renton.

* FunnyAfro: The only DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife: His main goal, and part of why he keeps chasing after/sticking with Ruri despite her occasionally questionable treatment of him, as he hopes that being with her will help guide him.
* TheDitherer: His main problem: he doesn't really know what he wants to do.
* EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether: He attended the same high school as Gillian and Steven. This being Sumner, he doesn't even remember them.
* ExtremeDoormat: Starts off as
one for his family in the ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl''.
* FakingTheDead: Albeit not by choice. After defecting from the military, he's declared officially dead rather than a traitor so as to not shame the Sturgeon name, so he just rolls with it.
* {{Fanboy}}: It's somewhat of a RunningGag that he's an LFO fanboy, weirding some people out. He also idolizes B.B. as a teenager, with that respect showing itself even as an adult where he uses the same moniker in a lifting tournament once.
* ForgottenFirstMeeting: With... just about the entire cast barring Hooky. Shaun and Pez tried to mug him once (though they don't seem to remember him either), and he utterly fails to retain any info about Gillian and Steven's existences during the years they attend school together. And, of course, there's the entire mess with Ruri.
* GoodIsNotSoft: He's a genuinely nice and compassionate guy, but when push comes to shove? He ends up killing a fair amount of former allies provided they tried to kill him first.
* GoodLookingPrivates: One

* GrewASpine: This is especially noticeable in

* HeelFaceTurn: Mostly for Ruri, hence why he's somewhat bitter
in regards ''New Vision'', believing that she ditched him afterwards.
* IHaveNoSon: His family pulls this on him after the events of ''New Wave''. You don't get much more disowned than being declared LegallyDead so that the family can save face.
* IgnoreTheFanservice: In ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', he never seems

* OfficialCouple: Matthieu and Hilda often act like husband and wife, although they are clearly in
acknowledge that he knows a romantic relationship.''very'' attractive older woman whom his (more hormonal) friends immediately fall for. According to her, it's because of his SingleTargetSexuality for B.B.
* TokenMinorityInnocentlyInsensitive: ''God'', it's almost painful to see how oblivious he is around Gillian.
* IWillFindYou: His objective at the end of ''New Wave'', after losing everything, is to find Ruri.
* JadeColoredGlasses: A mild version in ''New Vision'', in that he's still rather idealistic, but also a fair bit grumpier thanks to his experiences in ''New Wave''.
* JerkassRealization: He initially assumes his classmates are shallow jerks who only see him as a Sturgeon, before realizing that ''he'' was the shallow jerk for immediately dismissing them like that based on an ultimately false assumption.
* LegallyDead: After the events of ''New Wave''. See FakingTheDead above.
* LonelyRichKid: Played with. At age fourteen, he's rich and he's mostly friendless, but it's somewhat self-imposed as he automatically assumes everyone only focuses on his family name. Once he realizes that he's wrong and lets himself become part of a social circle, he's much happier.
* LoveAtFirstSight: He became infatuated with Ruri since the first time he saw her... not that he knows that it was her.
* LoveMartyr: For Ruri, to an extent. Her being TroubledButCute doesn't do wonders for their relationship and Sumner knows it, but he's devoted to her all the same.
* MassiveNumberedSiblings: He has five older brothers. It probably says something about his family that he doesn't seem to be close with any of them but Torino.
* MilitaryBrat: However, rather than staying in officer academy like his father wanted, he joined New Wave.
* NiceGuy: In ''New Wave'', compared to his SugarAndIcePersonality in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'' and the more [[OnlySaneMan beleaguered attitude]] he develops in ''New Vision''.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Claims he was never competing with Hooky--before insisting that he ''won'' that last 'tie', thank you very much.
* ObliviousToLove: To Gillian's.
* OnlySaneMan: Between him, Ruri, and Moondoggie.
-->'''Sumner:''' There are three of us here, but it doesn't matter. I'm still alone. I guess what I'm trying to say is why don't these two DO ANY OF THE WORK!?
* TheQuietOne: Used to be this. It was part of what attracted Gillian to him.
* RetiredBadass: The retirement was forced on him, what with being LegallyDead, but he amounts to this in the beginning of ''New Vision'', with both Wes and Moondoggie bemoaning how all of his talent as an AcePilot is going to waste.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Without even realizing it! Utter lack of interest in anyone else aside, he was mildly obsessive over both B.B. and the girl he saw once by chance, as others note, but ends up with Ruri--except they're all the same person.
* StepfordSmiler: Develops into one in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'' upon realizing how empty his life is, having everything decided for him by his family.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: As a teenager, due to believing his classmates only saw him as a Sturgeon. Around others and once he realized that wasn't the case for everyone, he's significantly warmer.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: Frequent in the beginning of ''New Vision''. Unlike some of the other [[AcePilot Ace Pilots]] on this page, Sumner falls off the radar, so most people assume he's your run-of-the-mill punk who pilots an LFO... without realizing that he used to be one of the military's ''best''.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Moondoggie. Sumner's clearly exasperated with him half the time, but is good friends with him nevertheless.

Pilot of Sumner's love interest. In ''New Wave'', she left New Wave Academy after learning about the Gekkostate LFO, Terminus typeR808. Acts as military's insidious motives. Although her efforts to rebel lead her to aligning with black market dealers, she eventually reunites with Sumner long enough to help him realize what path he should follow.

In ''New Vision'', Ruri is able to meet Sumner again, and they ([[AndZoidberg and Moondoggie]]) try to stop
a big-sister figure military scheme that is driving their own pilots insane. After the conflict is over, she and Sumner remain together.

Ruri also made an appearance in the manga adaptation. Here, she is a spy

* AffectionateNickname: Dubbed "Brother Doggie" by Renton, much to Moondoggie's annoyance.
* AscendedExtra: He gets to be a tritagonist in the video games.
* BetaCouple: With Gidget. They have the least amount of drama as a couple.
* {{Bishonen}}: He's drawn prettier than the other men of Gekkostate, and Gidget mentions his pretty face at one point.
* BromanticFoil: To Sumner in ''New Vision'', being loud and childish next to Sumner's OnlySaneMan status.
* ButtMonkey: In an unusual take on the trope, he was the ship's official ButtMonkey before Renton arrived, and actually resents Renton from taking the position from him. Of course, as Renton [[CharacterDevelopment grows as a character]], Moondoogie reclaims his role as the Butt Monkey.
* CoolBigBro: To Renton, who sees him as a surrogate big brother.

William B. Baxter. She suffers from what Renton first identifies as "Desperation Disease."

->Voiced by: Creator/AmiKoshimizu (JP), Creator/KariWahlgren (EN)N/A



* AcePilot: She's a great pilot who prefers to ambush her opponents and rain blow after blow upon them. However, she's only that way because she uses a PsychoSerum before she pilots.
* AdaptationalHeroism: In the manga. She's a lot nicer, especially [[LesYay toward Eureka]]. And Dominic at the end.
* AngerBornOfWorry: [[spoiler:When she goes to save Dominic after she accidentally attacks him with her mech while he's falling from the sky, clinging to a ref board to try and save her. She admonishes him for doing something so reckless, even though they're ''both'' in a freefall at this point. Now she's normally been pretty harsh on poor Dominic until now, but fortunately for him, she lets it slide. Cue BigDamnKiss.]]
* AntiVillain: As we discover more of her true personality and tragic past.
* AxCrazy: When she takes the serum, Anemone becomes ''viciously'' determined to kill her enemy with, even with overkill.
* BadassAdorable: A cute young lady with pink hair? Check. Can pilot [=theEnd=] like a pro? ''Double'' check.
* BelatedLoveEpiphany: [[spoiler:She realizes she is in love with Dominic around the time of his HeelFaceTurn when she thinks he has abandoned her, which leads to a far more serious DespairEventHorizon for her.]]
* BeneathTheMask: Her DaddysLittleVillain attitude is revealed to be a facade.
* BloodKnight: She loves violence, at least when she is on her PsychoSerum.
* BrokenBird: In the later part of the series reveals that she is in fact a lonely and mentally damaged girl who desperately wants to live a normal life and find someone to love and love her in return. Especially apparent in episode 48, where even Eureka's children note how sad she sounds.
* CharacterDevelopment: Anemone goes from PsychoForHire to angst ridden BrokenBird to [[TookALevelInKindness a nicer young lady]] [[WhenSheSmiles who can give a genuine smile.]]
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Dominic in the manga.
* CrazyConsumption: Mmmmm, [[FanDisservice strawberry jam.]]
%%* CuteAndPsycho
* DaddysLittleVillain: For Dewey. Turns out to be a subversion; she puts on a facade of admiring Dewey because she's terrified of being killed by him if she becomes useless in his eyes. In truth, Anemone is disgusted by him.
* DarkActionGirl: A psycho AcePilot who also doubles as the EvilCounterpart to the TheHeroine. [[spoiler:Thankfully, she pulls a HeelFaceTurn.]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:Her family was murdered when she was a child and later was diagnosed with Desperation Disease. She was then subject to horrible experiments to become Coralian-like.]]
* DarkMagicalGirl: Shows more traits of this as the series goes on. She's an AntiVillain and the heroine's EvilCounterpart who seeks to please the BigBad and is terrified of being abandoned and finally [[spoiler:makes a HeelFaceTurn thanks to ThePowerOfLove]].
* DefrostingIceQueen: Towards Dominic by the end.
* DevotedToYou: Her bitchy and psycho personality and constant abuse doesn't affect Dominic's devotion to her at all. He will always protect her no matter what.
* DomesticAbuser: She's got it in for poor Dominic for most of the series.
* EmotionlessGirl: Was apparently this before the start of the series, as Dominic and Dewey note that she has a personality now. She does have [[spoiler:Desperation Disease, after all.]]
* EvilCounterpart: To Eureka. Both are the AcePilot of their organization and have a LoveEpiphany when their love interest vanishes. They each even have their own MoralityPet (the kids for Eureka, Gulliver for Anemone). However, Anemone is with the United Federation, while Eureka is a member of Gekkostate. They also contrast in color scheme: Anemone is red (violent and emotional) and Eureka is blue (reserved and calm). [[spoiler:Subverted in the end.

* AdaptationalBadass: Not that he wasn't already a {{Badass}} in the anime, but he gets to see more of the action in the manga. Lampshaded in a sketch with various comments from the cast about the manga series, where Dominic comments that he was pretty cool.
* {{Adorkable}}: He's serious and blunt about his work, but is just ''adorable'' when he's lost or if he's looking dreamily at Anemone.
* AntiVillain: He takes orders from his superiors seriously, but considers himself [[FriendlyEnemy a friend of Renton]] despite being on the opposite side.
* BadassAdorable: Despite being slightly older than TheHero, Dominic gets his {{adorkable}} moments while still being a badass officer.
* BigBrotherMentor: He acts as one to Renton in the manga, particularly in Ch. 20 when Renton's having a HeroicBSOD.
* {{Bishonen}}: Even Anemone comments on it.
* TheCaretaker: To Anemone.
* CharacterDevelopment: Dominic begins to question the motives behind to why he fights and what he should be doing. He eventually realizes how [[spoiler:messed up Dewey is and makes a HeelFaceTurn.]]
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Anemone in the manga.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Dominic was a young child when he lost his entire family in the civil war that began in the aftermath of The First Summer of Love and he was taken in by Dewey, who taught him to be a soldier.
* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:He's killed towards the end of the manga.]]
* DeclarationOfProtection: He will NOT stand for something interfering with Anemone's well-being.
* DefectorFromDecadence: [[spoiler:He finally abandons the U.F. Force when he sees several girls being subjected to brutal, and ultimately fatal experiments in an attempt to made them into [=TheEND=]'s pilots. Especially when he realizes Anemone had to go through the same.]]
* DefusingTheTykebomb: He tries to do this for Anemone. [[spoiler:It eventually works.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Did we mention yet that he ''shrugged off laser burns'' to save Anemone in the manga? Not to mention his ShutUpHannibal moment before that, or afterwards when he puts up with the pain--if not putting himself in ''more'' pain--to get him and Anemone out of there.
* DoggedNiceGuy: To Anemone. [[spoiler:[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming His perseverance ultimately]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome pays off.]]]]
* DudeWheresMyRespect: There are men in the military far older than him and yet of much lower rank, who often have trouble obeying his orders. Dominic is also aware that commanding officers give him a hard time following his orders for Dewey as they think he's still a kid.
* EasilyForgiven: The Gekkostate crew decides to trust him implicitly as soon as he shows similarities to Renton, especially his commitment to the one he loves.
* EnemyMine: He and Renton are forced to work together to save Eureka and Anemone.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: "Evil" is a little much for him, but he does has someone he cares about: [[MoralityPet Anemone]]. He's as equally devoted and in love with her as Renton is to Eureka.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Calling him evil is a bit of a stretch, but he will NOT stand for [[spoiler:inhumane experiments performed on young women to make them into pilots for [=TheEND=]. ESPECIALLY if Anemone already suffered through such a treatment herself.]]
* EvilCounterpart: To Renton. Both are relatively new members to an organization, and are given little respect by the other members. The only person of the organization they have a close connection with is an AcePilot girl they quickly become devoted to. Both of them are WideEyedIdealist and go through a BrokenPedestal moment with their organization's leader. However, while Renton is with Gekkostate, Dominic is with the Federation. [[spoiler:Subverted since Dominic was never truly "evil" and made a HeelFaceTurn near the end.]]
* FreudianExcuse: As a result of having been orphaned at a young age and seen the effects of a war, Dominic becomes stoic and blunt towards others, and takes his duty as a soldier seriously.
* FriendlyEnemy: He considers Renton (who is a member of the Federation's enemy) as a friend.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Near the end of the series, he abandons U.F. Force and joins Gekkostate's side.]]
* HeelRealization:
** In the anime, Dominic realizes how sadistic his organization is [[spoiler: when he sees girls, just like Anemone, undergo brutal, and ultimately fatal, experimentation in the lab.]] Cue the VomitDiscretionShot and [[spoiler: his HeelFaceTurn.]]
** In the manga, this occurs when Ruri informs him of Dewey's true motives, with Dominic realizing that everything he's fought for up until now was a lie.
* HeroicBSOD: Coinciding with his HeelRealization above, though it doesn't last for long.
* HeroicSacrifice: In the manga, via YouShallNotPass fashion, [[spoiler:as he shields Renton from a hoard of Coralians.]]
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: In the manga.
* ImprobableHairstyle: The back part of his hair stands up on its own.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: When Dominic gives Anemone a couple of anemones as a present, she asks if he's mocking her -- he didn't realize that anemones mean "disappearing hope."
* InterspeciesRomance: He (human) and Anemone (artificial Humanoid Coralian).
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: [[spoiler:To Anemome. She finally realizes it after he seemingly abandons her and she hits the DespairEventHorizon.]]
* LoveMartyr: His endurance of Anemone's [[{{Jerkass}} condescending manner]] and [[DomesticAbuse physical assault]] is '''legendary.'''
* MeaningfulName: Originally from the late Roman-Italic name "Dominicus" its translation means "Of Our Lord", "Lordly", "Belonging to God" or "of the Master". This fits with him being the servant of Dewey and Anemone, both who outrank him.
* MistressAndServantBoy: His relationship with Anemone.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: You don't realize it until you see him twist the arms of thugs twice his size without any visible effort, as well as his ability to shoulder Anemone's improbably heavy Gulliver without extreme strain. There's also the stuff he does while saving Anemone in the manga, like shrugging off ''laser burns''.
* MyCountryRightOrWrong: {{Deconstructed}}. Dominic is loyal to Dewey's cause, but comes to be greatly disturbed by his amoral actions and disregard to Anemone's mental well-being.
* NiceGuy: Develops into one Post-HeelFaceTurn; he's now a humble, polite, respectful man to those he initially considered beneath him.
* NoSenseOfDirection: You know you're bad when [[IdiotHero Renton]] calls you out on it.
-->'''Dominic:''' Is "west" the direction of the hand you hold a fork with?
* NotSoDifferent: To Renton, who is also devoted to protecting the girl he loves.
* OfficialCouple: With Anemone.
* OnlyFriend: He is the closest to Anemone (sans Gulliver) and he genuinely cares about her.
* OrphansOrdeal: As revealed in Episode 44. It helps to explain why he's so devoted to Anemone - hers is the closest connection he has with another person.
* PunchClockVillain: He may work for the United Federation, but he's only doing his job.
* ShutUpHannibal: In response to a [[MindScrew hallucinated skeletal Dewey]] trying to BreakThemByTalking, in the manga.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Dominic has no interest in other girls, except one: Anemone.
* SubordinateExcuse: While Anemone doesn't outrank him, it should be clear that he chose this position for something more than a good paycheck.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: He can be cold at times, mainly when on the job, but he's a pretty nice guy otherwise.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: With Jurgens, pre-HeelFaceTurn.
* ToBeLawfulOrGood: [[spoiler:Once it's clear that this divide exists to begin with, he easily chooses 'good,' even telling Jurgens that there isn't even a choice.]]
* TokenGoodTeammate: Between Dewey, Anemone, and the Ageha squad children, he's about the only one who's actually trying to do the morally right thing.
* TookALevelInKindness: From Ep. 45 and onwards, as signified by his newfound friendship with Jurgens and Gulliver, neither of whom he got along with before due to his previous uptight behaviour.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: In Episodes 43 and 44.
* WideEyedIdealist: A bit subtler than most, but still very naive about how the world and human relationships work.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Dominic has greenish-black hair.

* AdaptationalBadass: Not that he wasn't already a {{Badass}} in the anime, but he gets to see more AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: [[spoiler:The final scene of the action in the manga.

* DarkAndTroubledPast: Dominic was a young child when he lost his entire family in the civil war that began in the aftermath of The First Summer of Love and he was taken in by Dewey, who taught him to be a soldier.
* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:He's killed towards the end of the manga.]]
* DeclarationOfProtection: He will NOT stand for something interfering with Anemone's well-being.
* DefectorFromDecadence: [[spoiler:He finally abandons the U.F. Force when he sees several girls being subjected to brutal, and ultimately fatal experiments in an attempt to made them into [=TheEND=]'s pilots. Especially when he realizes Anemone had to go through the same.]]
* DefusingTheTykebomb: He tries to do this for Anemone. [[spoiler:It eventually works.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Did we mention yet that he ''shrugged off laser burns'' to save Anemone in the manga? Not to mention his ShutUpHannibal moment before that, or afterwards when he puts up with the pain--if not putting himself in ''more'' pain--to get him and Anemone out of there.
* DoggedNiceGuy: To Anemone. [[spoiler:[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming His perseverance ultimately]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome pays off.]]]]
* DudeWheresMyRespect: There are men in the military far older than him and yet of much lower rank, who often have trouble obeying his orders. Dominic is also aware that commanding officers give him a hard time following his orders for Dewey as they think he's still a kid.
* EasilyForgiven: The Gekkostate crew decides to trust him implicitly as soon as he shows similarities to Renton, especially his commitment to the one he loves.
* EnemyMine: He and Renton are forced to work together to save Eureka and Anemone.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: "Evil" is a little much for him, but he does has someone he cares about: [[MoralityPet Anemone]]. He's as equally devoted and in love with her as Renton is to Eureka.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Calling him evil is a bit of a stretch, but he will NOT stand for [[spoiler:inhumane experiments performed on young women to make them into pilots for [=TheEND=]. ESPECIALLY if Anemone already suffered through such a treatment herself.]]
* EvilCounterpart: To Renton. Both are relatively new members to an organization, and are given little respect by the other members. The only person of the organization they have a close connection with is an AcePilot girl they quickly become devoted to. Both of them are WideEyedIdealist and go through a BrokenPedestal moment with their organization's leader. However, while Renton is with Gekkostate, Dominic is with the Federation. [[spoiler:Subverted since Dominic was never truly "evil" and made a HeelFaceTurn near the end.]]
* FreudianExcuse: As a result of having been orphaned at a young age and seen the effects of a war, Dominic becomes stoic and blunt towards others, and takes his duty as a soldier seriously.
* FriendlyEnemy: He considers Renton (who is a member of the Federation's enemy) as a friend.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Near the end of the series, he abandons U.F. Force and joins Gekkostate's side.]]
* HeelRealization:
** In the anime, Dominic realizes how sadistic his organization is [[spoiler: when he sees girls, just like Anemone, undergo brutal, and ultimately fatal, experimentation in the lab.]] Cue the VomitDiscretionShot and [[spoiler: his HeelFaceTurn.]]
** In the manga, this occurs when Ruri informs him of Dewey's true motives, with Dominic realizing that everything he's fought for up until now was a lie.
* HeroicBSOD: Coinciding with his HeelRealization above, though it doesn't last for long.
* HeroicSacrifice: In the manga, via YouShallNotPass fashion, [[spoiler:as he shields Renton from a hoard of Coralians.]]
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: In the manga.
* ImprobableHairstyle: The back part of his hair stands up on its own.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: When Dominic gives Anemone a couple of anemones as a present, she asks if he's mocking her -- he didn't realize that anemones mean "disappearing hope."
* InterspeciesRomance: He (human) and Anemone (artificial Humanoid Coralian).
With Sakuya.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: [[spoiler:To Anemome. She finally realizes it after he seemingly abandons her and she hits the DespairEventHorizon.]]
* LoveMartyr: His endurance of Anemone's [[{{Jerkass}} condescending manner]] and [[DomesticAbuse physical assault]] is '''legendary.'''
* MeaningfulName: Originally from the late Roman-Italic name "Dominicus" its translation means "Of Our Lord", "Lordly", "Belonging to God" or "of the Master". This fits with him being the servant of Dewey and Anemone, both who outrank him.
* MistressAndServantBoy: His relationship with Anemone.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: You don't realize it until you see him twist the arms of thugs twice his size without any visible effort, as well as his ability to shoulder Anemone's improbably heavy Gulliver without extreme strain. There's also the stuff he does while saving Anemone in the manga, like shrugging off ''laser burns''.
* MyCountryRightOrWrong: {{Deconstructed}}. Dominic is loyal to Dewey's cause, but comes to
ObfuscatingStupidity: Don't be greatly disturbed fooled by his amoral actions and disregard to Anemone's mental well-being.

%%* SacrificialLion

* NiceGuy: Develops into one Post-HeelFaceTurn; he's now a humble, polite, respectful man to those he initially considered beneath him.
* NoSenseOfDirection: You know you're bad when [[IdiotHero Renton]] calls you out on it.
-->'''Dominic:''' Is "west" the direction of the hand you hold a fork with?
* NotSoDifferent: To Renton, who is also devoted to protecting the girl he loves.
* OfficialCouple:

* OnlyFriend: He is the closest to Anemone (sans Gulliver) and he genuinely cares about her.
* OrphansOrdeal: As revealed in Episode 44. It helps to explain why he's so devoted to Anemone - hers is the closest connection he has with another person.
* PunchClockVillain: He may work for the United Federation, but he's only doing his job.
* ShutUpHannibal: In response to a [[MindScrew hallucinated skeletal Dewey]] trying to BreakThemByTalking, in the manga.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Dominic has no interest in other girls, except one: Anemone.
* SubordinateExcuse: While Anemone doesn't outrank him, it should be clear that he chose this position for something more than a good paycheck.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: He can be cold at times, mainly when on the job, but he's a pretty nice guy otherwise.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: With Jurgens, pre-HeelFaceTurn.
* ToBeLawfulOrGood: [[spoiler:Once it's clear that this divide exists to begin with, he easily chooses 'good,' even telling Jurgens that there isn't even a choice.]]
* TokenGoodTeammate: Between Dewey, Anemone, and the Ageha squad children, he's about the only one who's actually trying to do the morally right thing.
* TookALevelInKindness: From Ep. 45 and onwards, as signified by his newfound friendship with Jurgens and Gulliver, neither of whom he got along with before due to his previous uptight behaviour.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: In Episodes 43 and 44.
* WideEyedIdealist: A bit subtler than most, but still very naive about how the world and human relationships work.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Dominic has greenish-black hair.

Eureka's predecessor. Because she was a girl of mysterious power, the religious authority of Vodarac thought she was some sort of messiah and placed her in the central part of the temple. They banned any disciple from speaking to her, and allowed very few select disciples to care for her in a highly reverent, if sterile, manner. For forty years since her initial appearance, she had no significant contact with anyone. This changed when Norb was assigned to care for her.

!!''New Wave'' and ''New Vision'' Characters

[[folder:Sumner Sturgeon]]
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/104_49369_eureka03.jpg]]
The male protagonist of the video game prequels ''New Wave'' and ''New Vision''. After graduating New Wave Academy, a school for future military recruits, he and most of his friends joined the Sawyer Team KLF group. His beliefs and love for Ruri convince him to rebel against the military at the end of the first game, and [[spoiler: deliver a captured Nirvash to Holland and Eureka]].

In the second game, he, Ruri, and Moondoggie fight against the Azure group and corrupted members of the military, including some of Sumner's old friends, to prevent mass destruction.

->Voiced by: Creator/HiroShimono (JP), Creator/SamRiegel (EN)
----
* TheAce: Explicitly referred to as the ace of the Sawyer Team.
* AcePilot: The star of New Wave (and then the Sawyer Team), after Ruri leaves. Even years later, he hasn't lost his touch and ranks among the best.
* {{Adorkable}}: He can be endearingly flustered and/or enthusiastic. Less so in ''New Vision'', having grown up a bit, but it's still there at times.
* BattleCouple: With Ruri in ''New Vision''.
* BeenThereShapedHistory: [[spoiler:He was the one who delivered the Nirvash to the Gekkostate.]]
* BlackSheep: Of the famous Sturgeon family, after he chose to quit officer academy and join New Wave, and then doubly so after he defected from the military.
* BrokenAce: Becomes this by ''New Vision''. Compared to the AcePilot before who thought everything was new and shiny and amazing, the LegallyDead RetiredBadass he's turned into admits that lifting is now just another way to keep himself fed, and he's beginning to forget how he used to feel back in the old days.
* BrokenPedestal: In ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', his favourite brother Torino becomes this after Sumner witnesses him shooting (and killing) the brother of one of Sumner's friends.
* TheCameo: Sumner and Ruri make a brief appearance in the anime. He also appears in the manga's epilogue, in a panel alongside [[CanonImmigrant Ruri]], Moondoggie, and Gidget.
* DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife: His main goal, and part of why he keeps chasing after/sticking with Ruri despite her occasionally questionable treatment of him, as he hopes that being with her will help guide him.
* TheDitherer: His main problem: he doesn't really know what he wants to do.
* EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether: He attended the same high school as Gillian and Steven. This being Sumner, he doesn't even remember them.
* ExtremeDoormat: Starts off as one for his family in the ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl''.
* FakingTheDead: Albeit not by choice. After defecting from the military, he's declared officially dead rather than a traitor so as to not shame the Sturgeon name, so he just rolls with it.
* {{Fanboy}}: It's somewhat of a RunningGag that he's an LFO fanboy, weirding some people out. He also idolizes B.B. as a teenager, with that respect showing itself even as an adult where he uses the same moniker in a lifting tournament once.
* ForgottenFirstMeeting: With... just about the entire cast barring Hooky. Shaun and Pez tried to mug him once (though they don't seem to remember him either), and he utterly fails to retain any info about Gillian and Steven's existences during the years they attend school together. And, of course, there's the entire mess with Ruri.
* GoodIsNotSoft: He's a genuinely nice and compassionate guy, but when push comes to shove? He ends up killing a fair amount of former allies provided they tried to kill him first.
* GoodLookingPrivates: One of the family servants notes how handsome he is in his military uniform.
* GrewASpine: This is especially noticeable in the Japanese version, where he switches from ''boku'' [[JapanesePronouns to the more assertive]] ''ore'' by the end of ''New Wave''.
* HeelFaceTurn: Mostly for Ruri, hence why he's somewhat bitter in ''New Vision'', believing that she ditched him afterwards.
* IHaveNoSon: His family pulls this on him after the events of ''New Wave''. You don't get much more disowned than being declared LegallyDead so that the family can save face.
* IgnoreTheFanservice: In ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', he never seems to acknowledge that he knows a ''very'' attractive older woman whom his (more hormonal) friends immediately fall for. According to her, it's because of his SingleTargetSexuality for B.B.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: ''God'', it's almost painful to see how oblivious he is around Gillian.
* IWillFindYou: His objective at the end of ''New Wave'', after losing everything, is to find Ruri.
* JadeColoredGlasses: A mild version in ''New Vision'', in that he's still rather idealistic, but also a fair bit grumpier thanks to his experiences in ''New Wave''.
* JerkassRealization: He initially assumes his classmates are shallow jerks who only see him as a Sturgeon, before realizing that ''he'' was the shallow jerk for immediately dismissing them like that based on an ultimately false assumption.
* LegallyDead: After the events of ''New Wave''. See FakingTheDead above.
* LonelyRichKid: Played with. At age fourteen, he's rich and he's mostly friendless, but it's somewhat self-imposed as he automatically assumes everyone only focuses on his family name. Once he realizes that he's wrong and lets himself become part of a social circle, he's much happier.
* LoveAtFirstSight: He became infatuated with Ruri since the first time he saw her... not that he knows that it was her.
* LoveMartyr: For Ruri, to an extent. Her being TroubledButCute doesn't do wonders for their relationship and Sumner knows it, but he's devoted to her all the same.
* MassiveNumberedSiblings: He has five older brothers. It probably says something about his family that he doesn't seem to be close with any of them but Torino.
* MilitaryBrat: However, rather than staying in officer academy like his father wanted, he joined New Wave.
* NiceGuy: In ''New Wave'', compared to his SugarAndIcePersonality in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'' and the more [[OnlySaneMan beleaguered attitude]] he develops in ''New Vision''.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Claims he was never competing with Hooky--before insisting that he ''won'' that last 'tie', thank you very much.
* ObliviousToLove: To Gillian's.
* OnlySaneMan: Between him, Ruri, and Moondoggie.
-->'''Sumner:''' There are three of us here, but it doesn't matter. I'm still alone. I guess what I'm trying to say is why don't these two DO ANY OF THE WORK!?
* TheQuietOne: Used to be this. It was part of what attracted Gillian to him.
* RetiredBadass: The retirement was forced on him, what with being LegallyDead, but he amounts to this in the beginning of ''New Vision'', with both Wes and Moondoggie bemoaning how all of his talent as an AcePilot is going to waste.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Without even realizing it! Utter lack of interest in anyone else aside, he was mildly obsessive over both B.B. and the girl he saw once by chance, as others note, but ends up with Ruri--except they're all the same person.
* StepfordSmiler: Develops into one in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'' upon realizing how empty his life is, having everything decided for him by his family.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: As a teenager, due to believing his classmates only saw him as a Sturgeon. Around others and once he realized that wasn't the case for everyone, he's significantly warmer.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: Frequent in the beginning of ''New Vision''. Unlike some of the other [[AcePilot Ace Pilots]] on this page, Sumner falls off the radar, so most people assume he's your run-of-the-mill punk who pilots an LFO... without realizing that he used to be one of the military's ''best''.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Moondoggie. Sumner's clearly exasperated with him half the time, but is good friends with him nevertheless.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Ruri]]
[[quoteright:196:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/h_104_49369_eureka04jpg.jpg]]
Sumner's love interest. In ''New Wave'', she left New Wave Academy after learning about the military's insidious motives. Although her efforts to rebel lead her to aligning with black market dealers, she eventually reunites with Sumner long enough to help him realize what path he should follow.

In ''New Vision'', Ruri is able to meet Sumner again, and they ([[AndZoidberg and Moondoggie]]) try to stop a military scheme that is driving their own pilots insane. After the conflict is over, she and Sumner remain together.

Ruri also made an appearance in the manga adaptation. Here, she is a spy for Gekko State in the military, and helps them fight Dewey's plans, as well as facilitate in Dominic's HeelFaceTurn.

->Voiced by: Creator/MegumiToyoguchi (JP), Creator/MichelleRuff (EN)
----
* AcePilot: As noted below, she was TheAce of New Wave until she left.
* ActionGirl: She can hold her own both in an LFO and outside of one.
* BadassAdorable: A GenkiGirl who's happy to brawl whether in an LFO or not.
* BareYourMidriff: Both her outfit in ''New Wave'' and in ''New Vision''.
* BattleCouple: With Sumner in ''New Vision''.
* BigEater: If the ramen-eating competition is any indication.
* BluebirdOfHappiness: In ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', she's associated with this for Gillian's little sister (with the bluebird itself being her AnimalMotif back then).
* BoobsOfSteel: The least fragile out of all the heroines in the E7 world, and has by far the largest chest.
* BrokenAce: She was TheAce of New Wave before Sumner, but possesses a deep-rooted insecurity of being dependent on others.
* BrokenBird: Not immediately obvious, but she's got a fair amount of issues underneath her energetic personality.
* TheCameo: Briefly appears in the anime alongside Sumner.
* CanonImmigrant: Started as a main character in the prequel video games (that are prequels to the anime) and then became a main character in the manga, which is an adaptation of the anime (albeit one that goes in a completely different direction).
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: Wears one as part of her New Wave uniform, and unlike Gillian, she's happy to wield it to its full potential.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: She's grown up on the streets and in poverty.
* DefectorFromDecadence: She left the military of her own volition once she realized how far the corruption ran.
* DoesNotLikeMen: Presumably due to growing up in the slums, she's not hugely fond of the male gender in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', citing them all to be idiots (or, to Gillian, perverts), though she doesn't outwardly express it much and seems to later abandon that mindset either way.
* EtTuBrute: Flame's--that is, her old mentor's--betrayal sends her into a HeroicBSOD.
* FieryRedhead: Her hair's a mix between red and brown (though considered red in the manga), and she's certainly got a loud personality to match.
* GenkiGirl: Though it occasionally veers into ObfuscatingStupidity.
* HeroicBSOD:
** As a teenager, she falls into a depressed mood for quite some time after being outed as a girl as B.B.
** Upon realizing Flame's true nature, though she quickly snaps out of it.
* HoneyTrap: She's not above seducing her targets to win their trust before she double-crosses them.
* ImportantHaircut: In ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', where she cuts her hair as acceptance of her femininity with it now being too short to stuff her under cap.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Though she's lost the grumpiness from her teenage days (in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl''), she's still prone to being flighty and inconsiderate. And like with Holland and Talho, said lack of consideration isn't exactly healthy for her love life.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Played straight in ''New Wave'', as the one who forces Sumner out of his comfort zone. Subverted in ''New Vision'', where it becomes clear that she's got her own problems.
* MasterOfDisguise: She's sure fond of it, in any case.
* TheMole: What she was originally in the manga, before making her true allegiance known
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Typically to hide her true motives.
* PaperThinDisguise: Her disguises when she shows up before Sumner are half-hearted at best, and yet he ''still'' can't recognize her, even while ''actively thinking about her''. Granted, this is probably more because of how Sumner is than anything.
* PassionateSportsGirl: In ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', she ''lives'' to lift. Her passion dies down when she no longer needs it to escape her life, but she still has a fondness for it.
* SelectiveObliviousness: She completely refuses to believe that Flame could be a villain until she has unrefutable evidence that he tried to have her killed.
* ShortTank: The {{Tomboy}} LoveInterest to Sumner with the outfit to match.
* SpiritedCompetitor: She shows signs of this when initially refusing to take on a job as a pizza delivery guy... until she hears that they've got a 5-minute speed record.
* StreetUrchin: She grew up on the streets, and as she notes that she can't remember a time when she wasn't independent, it's likely she's been an orphan for a long time.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Especially jarring in the manga, where where she first appears as a conservatively dressed scientist, then switches to her ''New Wave'' outfit.
* SweetPollyOliver: As a teenager in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', since girls weren't allowed to participate in the lifting tournament.
* TankTopTomboy: In ''New Vision''.
* TheTease: She can be flirty at times.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Tomboy to Gillian's Girly Girl.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: After embracing her femininity, she enjoys things like make-up and doesn't mind wearing mini skirts, but she's still a tomboy at heart, through and through.
* TomboyishPonytail: In ''New Vision''.
* TookALevelInCheerfulness: Over the course of ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', she goes from a bitter punk to a GenkiGirl.
* TroubledButCute: A female version, which puts a strain on her and Sumner's relationship, particularly in ''New Vision''. As Sumner notes, most guys wouldn't even think of kissing a girl like her.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: To the man who tried to assault her in prison while she was sleeping: suffice to say the guy noticed the "boy" was lacking certain... ''parts''.
* WasItAllALie: Gillian asks this after discovering that Ruri is a girl and (falsely) assuming that she's given up lifting, though she admits afterwards that she wasn't really talking to Ruri (but rather venting her feelings about Sumner, having seen some of him in Ruri).
* WhoWearsShortShorts: In ''New Wave''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Steven Bisson]]
One of Sumner's companions when he was a member of Sawyer Team. Between ''New Wave'' and ''New Vision'', an experimental drug given to him by the military drives him insane, turning him into one of the main antagonists of the second game.

->Voiced By: Creator/MasakazuMorita (JP), Creator/LiamOBrien (EN, Uncredited)
----
* AbusiveParents: When Steven was about to announce his intentions to go against his family's wishes (regarding his fate post-graduation) during his valedictorian speech, his father's response was to rush up to him and strike him in front of the entire audience.
* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler:Steven, Ruri, Gillian, and Hooky all mourn him after his death, both because he was their friend and because it wasn't entirely his fault to begin with.]]
* ArrangedMarriage: In one with Gillian, though they apparently break it off sometime between ''New Wave'' and ''New Vision''.
* BigBad: [[BigBadEnsemble One of them]] in ''New Vision''.
* BlackSheep: Presumably became this for his family after choosing not to go to officer academy and instead joining up with New Wave.
* CrazyJealousGuy: For the most part, he hides it well and doesn't let it interfere in his friendship with Sumner, but Steven's definitely taken notice of Gillian's feelings for Sumner. It's hinted to contribute to his SanitySlippage in ''New Vision''.
* EtTuBrute: Sumner's defection is implied to have been one of the nails in the coffin for Steven.
* LonelyAtTheTop: Suggested towards the end of ''New Vision'', where his insanity has its reached its peak and he seems ''genuinely'' glad to see Sumner and co. (who are there to take him down) and invites them to enjoy the view with him.
* MilitaryBrat: Same story as Sumner.
* NiceGuy: He comes across as this in ''New Wave'' (having lost his uptight attitude from ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl''), making his SanitySlippage all the more tragic in ''New Vision''.
* NotQuiteDead: Every time you might think the guy's been killed, he turns out to be alive.
* NotSoAboveItAll: As a teenager, he initially comes across as a rule-abiding StudentCouncilPresident, but he still helps referee Sind and Lotte's lifting match, and for all of his insistence that ghosts don't exist, he's just as easily freaked out when they think they see one.
* PsychopathicManchild: Degrades into this once he starts having a VillainousBreakdown.
* RebelliousSpirit: He becomes a downplayed one towards the end of ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl''. It may or may not have been what contributed to his SanitySlippage much later on.
* SanitySlippage: In ''New Vision''.
* StudentCouncilPresident: During his high school years.
* TragicVillain: In Ruri's words, he was ultimately another victim of CFS.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Hooky.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: His opinion of Sumner in ''New Vision'', despite Sumner's belief that they still ''are'' friends.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Averted in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'' and ''New Wave'', but ultimately plays it straight as a BigBad in ''New Vision''.
* {{Yandere}}: Implied towards the end of ''New Vision'', where he seems fixated on Gillian in particular (to the point of firing specifically at her when he attacks Sumner and co.).

One of Sumner's companions when he was a member of Sawyer Team, and Steven's fiancée. She works alongside Hooky in ''New Vision'', where she hunts down the traitors Sumner and Ruri.

->Voiced By: Creator/ChieNakamura (JP), Creator/JulieAnnTaylor (EN, Uncredited)
----
* AntiVillain: In ''New Vision''. She doesn't do anything honestly antagonistic and mostly acts as a harmless PunchClockVillain (with a touch of ItsPersonal).
* ArrangedMarriage: With Steven.
* FriendlyEnemy: In ''New Vision'', albeit with some prodding.
* HeelFaceTurn: In ''New Vision'' alongside Hooky.
* HerHeartWillGoOn: A platonic version. [[spoiler:Even after Gillian's sister dies, Ruri notes that Gillian keeps on lifting, "getting as high up to heaven as she can."]]
* HiddenDepths: The "Fair Lady" chapter reveals much about her mindset and personality when not revolving around her crush on Sumner. InUniverse, Ruri admits to herself that she might've been wrong about upper class girls like Gillian.
* HopelessSuitor: Sumner didn't even realize she existed until they became teammates.
* KillTheOnesYouLove: [[spoiler:She's ultimately the one who pulls the trigger on Steven]].
* OnlySaneMan: During the ramen-eating competition, as the only one to question why they're doing this instead of, you know, capturing Sumner and Ruri like they're supposed to.
* PluckyGirl: Especially in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', where she continues to lift after [[spoiler:her sister's death]].
* ProperTightsWithASkirt: Invoked by her, disgusted at how revealing the female uniform for New Wave is.
* SmittenTeenageGirl: She was one for Sumner. As an adult, she keeps her feelings more subdued (partly because she's realized she doesn't really stand a chance).
* SpiritedYoungLady: An upper class girl who gets into lifting--seen as a sport for punks--and ends up joining the controversial New Wave.
* TheSquadette: After Ruri leaves, she's the sole female member of New Wave/the Sawyer Team.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Nicknamed "Miss Iron-Skirt" by Hooky for a reason. She tends to be uptight and came across as outright cold in her first meeting with Ruri, but she's a caring person underneath.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Ruri's Tomboy.
* UnableToCry: [[spoiler:When Steven dies]].
* WhatDoesSheSeeInHim: Edie, her best friend (and a ChildhoodFriend of Sumner's) asks this regarding her feelings for Sumner.
* WhenYouComingHomeDad: Her father's shown to be frequently busy with work in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', though Gillian doesn't seem as affected by it as her little sister.

[[folder:Hooky Zueff]]
One of Sumner's companions when he was a member of Sawyer Team. Initially possessing a crush on Ruri, he considers Sumner his rival until Sumner beats him in a fight. During the timeskip between ''New Wave'' and ''New Vision'', he's promoted to second lieutenant.

->Voiced By: Creator/WataruTakagi (JP), Creator/DerekStephenPrince (EN, Uncredited)
----
* AntiVillain: In ''New Vision'', as he remains pretty friendly with Sumner and co. in spite of everything.
* CannotTalkToWomen: Steven and Gillian have nicknamed him the Bashful Womanizer for this reason.
* FriendlyEnemy: In ''New Vision''. He's happy to have a ramen-eating competition with the very people he's supposed to be arresting.
* FunnyAfro: When he's not wearing a hat. In Steven's words, that hair can''not'' be within military regulations.
* GracefulLoser: In spite of how obsessed he is over Ruri, he backs down just as promised after losing to Sumner.
* HeWillNotCrySoICryForHim: A gender-flipped version--he cries when Gillian can't.
* HeadbuttingHeroes: He and Shaun don't get along very well, due to a rocky history together. The two end up in outright blows while in Bester, before Sumner and Wes intervene.
* HeelFaceTurn: In ''New Vision'' alongside Gillian.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: For all of his bluster, he's a fairly amiable guy once he warms up to you.
* SerialRomeo: He's quick to develop crushes in the military.
* StalkerWithACrush: Towards Ruri at first. He gets over it quickly.
* UnknownRival: To Sumner, who initially isn't even aware that Hooky is competing him with him for Ruri.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Again, with Shaun.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Steven.

[[folder:Shaun Banks]]
One of Sumner's companions when he was a member of Sawyer Team, as well as being one of the first members.

->Voiced By: Creator/MitsuakiMadono (JP), Creator/DanWoren (EN, Uncredited)
----
* EveryoneHasStandards: Chews out the vigilante corps in Bester for acting like bullies. [[spoiler:And as Pez notes, Shaun couldn't stand copycats, making it highly unlikely he chose to use CFS of his own volition.]]
* HeadbuttingHeroes: With Hooky, as noted under his section.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Pez.
* IdiotHero: He has shades of this during his teenage years, being fairly thick-headed and reckless compared to Pez, Ruri, and even Hooky.
* {{Jerkass}}: Most of the time, and especially at first.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: However, he does have his nice moments. He's a loyal friend (who lays off some of the obnoxiousness once he warms up to you), and he's seen to be pretty displeased over the new corruption in his hometown of Bester.
* NotSoDifferent: Ruri comes to think this way in ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'' when she sees that even a bunch of punks like him and Pez have something they're working towards with all their effort.
* OddFriendship: With Pez, who's his complete opposite in personality.
* PetTheDog: In ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'', the first major sign of Shaun's heart of gold is him choosing to be a SecretKeeper for Ruri/B.B. for no reason other than not wanting to ruin a potential friendship.
* SanitySlippage: Thanks to using the CFS in ''New Vision''.
* SecretKeeper: Knew "B.B" was a girl, but chose not to use it against Ruri, citing to Pez that she would never let him be her friend if he did.
* StreetUrchin: ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'' reveals that he used to live on the streets with Pez.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: With Hooky.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Pez.

[[folder:Pez Wells]]
One of Sumner's companions when he was a member of Sawyer Team, as well as being one of the first members alongside Shaun.

->Voiced By: Creator/YasuyukiKase (JP), Erik Davies (EN, Uncredited)
----
* AntiVillain: In ''New Vision''--unsurprising, given that he was the NiceGuy of the Sawyer team, aside from Sumner.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Though someone who, up until then, had been a rather passive, kind person, [[spoiler:his betrayal of Steven and dying words]] makes it clear why you should ''not'' mess with his best friend.
* DistressedDude: He has to be rescued at one point in ''New Wave'' by Sumner, due to being trapped in a bandit-ridden mine with his LFO too damaged for combat.
* DyingDeclarationOfHate: [[spoiler:What his dying speech to Steven amounts to.]]
* GadgeteerGenius: He manages to get an LFO up and running.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Rather than blaming Sumner for killing Shaun, he blames Steven, believing that he pushed Shaun to using the CFS]].
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:He helps Sumner and Ruri, despite knowing the consequences--that is, Steven kills him for it]].
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Shaun.
* NiceGuy: Especially when next to Shaun.
* NotSoDifferent: From Ruri, as noted by her. See Shaun's section for the details.
* OddFriendship: With Shaun.
* SecretKeeper: For B.B./Ruri.
* StreetUrchin: ''Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl'' reveals that he used to live on the streets with Shaun.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Shaun.

* GadgeteerGenius: The biggest in the world.
* GoKartingWithBowser: He and Dominic got along really well, even though Dominic was still on the villain team at the time. He even taught Dominic how to fix his bike, and Dominic promised to check up on his grandson. Then again, he never finds out what side Dominic was on at the time.
%%* JerkWithAHeartOfGold

[[folder:Diane Thurston]]

Renton's long lost sister and Holland's ex-girlfriend.

->Voiced by: Creator/SakikoTamagawa (JP), Peggy O'Neal (EN)
----
* ChekhovMIA: A defining part of the series is Diane and her disappearance's effect on Renton and Holland. [[spoiler:It is revealed that she had a relationship with Holland and somehow found her way into the control cluster with her father.]]
* DatingWhatDaddyHates: Or what Granddaddy hates, that is. Suffice to say that Axel didn't approve of Holland.
* DemotedToExtra: In the manga, Diane is a much less significant character. Diane is merely mentioned to have left home and her disappearance is not relevant to the plot. Holland's close relationship with Diane also disappears from the narrative and Holland has a mentor-student relationship with Adrock Thurston instead.
* TheFaceless: Her face isn't shown for the first 35 episodes. Under many different circumstances, her face in flashbacks and photographs is always covered.
* FirstLove: To Holland.
* MarriedToTheJob: She was obsessed with her father's research; so much that it affected her relationship with Holland.
* PromotionToParent: She and Axel were the ones who raised Renton after Adroc's death.

* HappilyMarried: Despite Martha having Desperation Disease, she and William have a happy and intimate marriage.
* MysteriousMiddleInitial: William doesn't tell Renton what the "B" in his name stands for because it's an [[EmbarrassingMiddleName embarrassing one.]]

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5286810387_5a6bce2776.jpg]]

Eureka's predecessor. Because she was a girl of mysterious power, the religious authority of Vodarac thought she was some sort of messiah and placed her in the central part of the temple. They banned any disciple from speaking to her, and allowed very few select disciples to care for her in a highly reverent, if sterile, manner. For forty years since her initial appearance, she had no significant contact with anyone. This changed when Norb was assigned to care for her.

* ThePollyanna: Given her backstory, she has every right to be miserable, but she's easily one of the friendliest and most optimistic characters around from what little we see of her.
%%* PurpleEyes
* StarCrossedLovers: With Norb.
* WhenSheSmiles: Norb says he fell in love with her the moment he saw her smile for the first time.

* LaserGuidedKarma: As sad as it is, when you remember how much damage he's done to the crew, especially to Eureka and Renton, over the past two seasons, it is possible that his leg being wounded to the point where he may never be able to truly lift ride again, may be his comeuppance for the actions that lead to said wound.
