[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Spirits in general]]
* ActionGirl: They're all girls, and every single one of them can kick copious amounts of ass. [[spoiler:At least, until Shido reveals [[AllYourPowersCombined he can borrow their powers]].]]
* BadassAdorable
* CallingYourAttacks: Together with their Angels' names.
* CodeName: Assigned by the AST and the DEM.
* ColorCodedCharacters: Their hair colors correspond to the colors of the Sephirot they represent.
* CurbStompBattle: Easily able to dish this out to just about anyone who isn't one. Except the stronger Wizards like Ellen, who can easily curbstomp ''them'' if they aren't careful.
* CursedWithAwesome: Their powers come at an expense of being persecuted ''just for existing.''
* ExoticEyeDesigns: Whitened pupils due to having Spirit powers.
* FishOutOfWater: To various degrees, but especially Tohka.
* FriendlessBackground: Goes with the whole "hunted just for existing" thing. The spirits dealt with it in [[BreakTheCutie various ways]]. The Yamai twins are relatively well adjusted in this regard, as they had each other.
* KickingAssInAllHerFinery: Except for Yoshino and [[{{Stripperiffic}} the Yamai twins]].
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: The Spirits who weren't humans turned to Spirits, anyway know nothing of the dimension they apparently come from.
* MostCommonSuperpower: With the exception of the {{Token Mini Moe}}s, the Spirits tend to be rather stacked, and their Astral Dresses make sure to show it.
* MySuitIsAlsoSuper: Their Astral Dresses also have some degree of protection, being part of their powers. Pales in comparison to the rest of it, though.
** Miku's in particular can give off light; useful in the case of lights failing to work during her concerts
* NighInvulnerable[=/=]PersonOfMassDestruction: Due to their Angels.
* NumericalThemeNaming: Each known Spirit so far has a numerical kanji in their names.
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: Not actual beings, but their Angels act as their weapon and shield, and they also have actual [[ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming angel]] [[NamedWeapons names]] as well.
* OurSpiritsAreDifferent: They're shown to interact normally with normal humans, aside from their superpowers.
* PowerIncontinence: By virtue of involuntarily causing spacequakes whenever they come to this world. They can also voluntarily cause them, as Kurumi, Kotori and Miku have shown. On top of that, some Spirits with powers related to the weather cause changes (like rain for Yoshino or storms for Yamai).
** The Spirits Shido seals the powers of will undergo this as well by virtue of their power flowing back into them, if their mental state becomes unstable.
* ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming: Their Angels are named after the [[http://angels.about.com/od/Famous-Archangels/f/Who-Are-The-Archangels-On-The-Kabbalah-Tree-Of-Life.htm Archangels]] of their respective Sephirot of the Kabbalah Tree of Life, based on the numerical kanji in their names[[note]]Raphael and Michael represent the 6th and 8th Sephirot together, so it's technically not wrong for Yamai's (8) Angel to be Raphael[[/note]]. Their Astral Dresses are named after the Divine Names of said Sephirot.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: If Tohka is of any indication, it's implied that they can tap into this when they deem their current power to be insufficient. Their [[EvilCostumeSwitch Astral]] [[PaintItBlack Dress]] [[EvolvingWeapon and Angel]] will both change in the process, with their Angels having another name, this time being the Qliphoth of the respective Sephirot. [[FriendOrFoe However, they won't be able to tell friend from foe,]] [[TheBerserker and as a result will attack anyone and everyone in their sights indiscriminately.]] Interesting note: according to Isaac Westcott, this is their actual form in the [[AnotherDimension bordering dimension]].
* TransformationSequence: Both played straight and inverted. Spirits can turn their Astral Dress into normal clothing and back via this. It's mentioned that there is less protective value in that mode, and all the Spirits seem to revert to their normal Astral Dress for combat. Or as much of their clothing as they can, anyway. The length of each TransformationSequence varies.
** The first time [[InvertedTrope we see this is]] Tohka changing her Astral Dress into a school uniform for her date with Shido.
* UnskilledButStrong: Despite their strength, they can easily get caught off-guard by those they can't [[CurbStompBattle defeat outright]], such as [[TheAce Ellen.]]
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Courtesy of being persecuted by the AST and the DEM.

[[folder:Shido Itsuka/Takamiya]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shidoitsuka_7221.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NobunagaShimazaki (Japanese), Creator/JoshGrelle (English)

The main protagonist. For some reason he is able to seal a Spirit's powers in his body with a kiss, given that the Spirit holds enough trust or affection towards him. He also has a HealingFactor. Currently adopted by the Itsukas, having been abandoned by his birth mother for unknown reasons. He and Mana are [[LongLostRelative biological siblings.]] This is confirmed by Isaac Westcott in Volume 7, who called him Takamiya before quickly switching to Itsuka.

%%It is revealed in Volume 4 that his HealingFactor is because he sealed Kotori's powers five years before the start of the story, enabling him access to use them, and one of her powers was a HealingFactor. Later volumes let him use the powers of other Spirits he seals, and later still, [[AllYourPowersCombined multiple ones at once.]]
----
* AccidentalMisnaming: Reine kept getting his name wrong, so she just started calling him Shin instead. This eventually becomes an InSeriesNickname of sorts for him.
* AccidentalPervert: He gets into quite a few situations with Tohka in Volume 2, courtesy of [[InvokedTrope Kotori's planning as part of his training]].
* AllYourPowersCombined: He can use the Angels of the Spirits he kisses. And as Volume 7 reveals, multiple ones at the same time at that.
* AttractiveBentGender: As "Shiori" in Volume 6.
** Taken UpToEleven in one of the side stories.
* BigBrotherInstinct: To both [[NotBloodSiblings Kotori]] and [[LongLostRelative Mana]].
* {{Bishonen}}: Comes in handy when he has to crossdress!
* BluntYes: Delivers two to Miku, when asked if Tohka was more important to him than his life, and later on, when asked if he would risk his life to save Miku like he would Tohka, should the situation call for it. He delivers on both counts.
* ButtMonkey: Gets subjected to this by the Ratatoskr crew whenever he fails in his training to date a Spirit. [[DisproportionateRetribution Like revealing his most embarrassing moments in his life, or that he must do something as punishment.]]
* CastFromHitPoints[=/=]HeroicRROD: When he uses Sandalphon, it really strains his body to breaking point, as his body is not used to it. Unlike most cases, he can counter it with his HealingFactor, though it still hurts really bad.
* ChickMagnet: Invoked by Ratatoskr's training, no less.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Origami points out that Shido calls her by her [[LastNameBasis last name]], but Tokha by her [[FirstNameBasis first name]]. She then says "This is quite unfair."
-->'''Shido''': So this means…? Should I call Tohka with Yatogami from now on? Somehow I can't get used to that…
* DeathIsCheap[=/=]GoodThingYouCanHeal[=/=]HealingFactor: Due to Efreet's power being sealed inside him. For some reason he's treated as being killed so it kind of counts as DeathIsCheap.
* TheDulcineaEffect: He's very strongly affected by this, wanting to help the girls that he just met and blew up a large portion of town. The Ratatoskr backs him up in his efforts as well. To wit: in the anime, when he tells Yoshino he'll be her hero:
--> '''Shido (thinking to himself)''': That's right. It doesn't matter if she's a Spirit. There's no way I'm leaving this sweet little girl to fend for herself!
** Wanting to save [[AxCrazy Kur]][[CuteAndPsycho umi]], who had killed over 10000 people with her own hands, with ''Shido himself'' as her next target? Check.
* {{Expy}}: Like [[Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows Keima]], he's being [[InvokedTrope forced to]] [[HaremSeeker make girls fall in love with him]] (against his will) using DatingSim methods, resulting in an UnwantedHarem. And like Keima, he ''really'' has to work for his harem.
* GenreSavvy: Exploits his DeathIsCheap powers by taking ''himself'' hostage against Kurumi, knowing that he'll survive.
* HaremSeeker: A rare case of the HaremSeeker ''[[UnwantedHarem not]]'' wanting his harem. He's only dating the Spirits, to, well, save the world, as put by Kotori, and from the start he didn't want to be have to talk to them by dating them, insisting that there is another way. Kotori shoots down his arguments, of course.
* IGaveMyWord: To Miku, despite her misgivings. Him actually delivering [[ThePromise his promises (including risking his life to save her if she were in danger) is what eventually makes her fall in love with him.]] Of course, TheDulcineaEffect may have something to do with it...
** His promise to Tohka not to kiss any other girl, on the other hand, just ''can't'' be kept, because it's what's needed to seal a Spirit's power. Though Tohka being Tohka may have forgotten about it already.
* IndirectKiss: Kurumi and Shidou share one in the Date-A-Live Drama CD, when Shidou gives Kurumi some of the drink he's already had. Kurumi takes note of it.
* InsistentTerminology: No, he's not a Spirit, he's a human who can use Spirit powers. Which is actually true, at least for now.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: He has the most holes in his memory out of all the cast. (Tohka doesn't count; her memory is literally one big hole.)
* LeeroyJenkins: His method of rescuing Tohka? Just rush into the DEM building (where Tohka was being held captive) and try to find her. If not for Miku, he'd have been screwed.
* MySisterIsOffLimits: To [[HeterosexualLifePartners Hiroto]]. Well, his [[NotBloodSiblings foster sister]] anyway.
* NiceGuy
* NotBloodSiblings: Of Kotori.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: Considering that sealing a Spirit's powers [[TheNudifier causes their Astral Dresses to disappear]], the dresses being part of their powers, it means that Shido is at risk of this happening to him every time he does this. And he actually suffers this when he seals Yamai's and Miku's powers.
** Also, this is what happens to him twice with Yoshino, courtesy of [[ClingyJealousGirl Tohka]]. (The first was an accidental kiss, the second was him demonstrating to Yoshino what happened the first time.)
* OhCrap: When he sees [[ClingyJealousGirl Tohka]] see him about to kiss Yoshino for the second time. And he was just trying to demostrate what he accidentally did to her the first time! Of course, this is just asking for trouble...
* ParentalAbandonment: His mother abandoned him, his father isn't mentioned, and his foster parents are both working overseas.
* PowerParasite: He seals Spirits' powers within himself by kissing them.
* SayMyName: He screams Tohka's name while he's falling down from the ''Fraxinus''. This is after he finds out that he has a HealingFactor.
** In a CallBack to Volume 1, Volume 7 does almost the same thing, only instead he's falling from a height the Yamai twins brought him up to. Also, just before this, he shouted out Miku's name as he moved to shield her from Tohka's attack.
* TakeAThirdOption: When asked to choose which of the Yamai twins to keep alive, he chooses both.
* TakingTheBullet: For Tohka in Volume 1. He would have done this for Kurumi in Volume 4, but Kotori shifted her aim in time.
* TookALevelInBadass: Shido becomes one in Volume 7. Just ''look'' at [[http://i50.tinypic.com/vg07ee.jpg this image]] (warning: spoiler alert).
** Actually, given that he can use the powers of the Spirits he kisses, for each Spirit's powers he seals he takes one Level in Badass.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: In Volume 6. Tohka however sees through it and Origami takes a lot of pictures. Kurumi also sees through it, and teases him for it hard in Volume 7.
* WrongGenreSavvy: He assumed Tohka was an InnocentFanserviceGirl. She isn't.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

[[folder:Tohka Yatogami]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tohkayatogami_2344.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MarinaInoue (Japanese), Michelle Rojas (English)

The first Spirit that Shido encounters. Shido named her Tohka after the date of their first meeting (April 10), with one kanji being different. Reine later added the Yatogami surname. Shido seals her powers at the end of Volume 1.

%%She gets captured by the DEM at the end of Volume 6, and Volume 7 is centred on rescuing her from DEM's clutches. On seeing Shido stabbed by Ellen and then talking about killing him, she taps into her SuperpoweredEvilSide, but Shido manages to kiss her to return her back to normal.

->Code name: "Princess"\\
Angel: Sandalphon/Nahemah ([[CoolChair Thr]][[{{BFS}} one]])\\
Astral Dress: Adonai Melek
----
* {{Adorkable}}: Her utter sincerity about everything and her innocence is very endearing.
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: Before she went on a date with Shido.
* BadassInDistress: Lampshaded by Miku when she breaks free due to her SuperpoweredEvilSide.
* BattleBallgown: Her Astral Dress. Easy to see where the "Princess" CodeName came from. Comes with ShouldersOfDoom instead of GiantPoofySleeves.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Shido manages to survive against Tohka early on because he was the first person that didn't want to instantly shoot her.
* BerserkButton: If Shido lets her see him kiss another girl... he'd better watch out. And woe betide anyone who dares hurt him in front of her.
* {{BFS}}: Her Angel.
* BigEater
* ClingyJealousGirl: Towards Shido. In episode 12, she tells him to keep helping spirits in need, but to not kiss them. When he explains that it would make helping them difficult, she tells him that she doesn't like seeing him kiss other girls.
* CoolChair: Her Angel's... scabbard. It can combine with her {{BFS}} for her FinishingMove.
* CryCute: Oh, it breaks one's heart to see someone so sweet cry.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: To some extent; her hair and eyes are mainly purple.
* DamselInDistress: Gets captured by Ellen in Volume 7.
* TheDitz
* ExpressiveAccessory: Her ribbons wiggle on their own when she is excited. Or [[BigEater hungry]].
* ExtremeOmnivore: Able to eat ''frying pans'' too.
* FishOutOfWater: Initially. She thought the world was an uninhabited wasteland only populated by flying mecha troops that would ineffectually try to kill her. Of course, even now there's still a lot of things she has to learn about this world...
* GenkiGirl: After she warms up to Shido.
* GracefulLadiesLikePurple
* HairDecorations: Her ribbons.
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: In the OVA she takes a naked picture of herself in a photo booth and gives it to Shido, because Reine told her that anytime she takes a picture she should strip naked to do so. Unfortunately he brought said picture to school, and accidentally drops it, and apparently forgot about it until that point.
* IsItSomethingYouEat: Constantly, as a result of being both a BigEater and a FishOutOfWater.
* LadyOfWar
* NewTransferStudent: At the end of Volume 1.
* NoNameGiven: Until Shido does.
* NotSoDifferent: Tohka outright acknowledges that she could have ended up just like Kurumi, had Shidou not been there to save her when she needed it.
* OddNameOut: Her Angel, as compared to the other Spirits'. It's the only one that doesn't end with the suffix -el.
** [[ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming Though from the looks of it, neither will the first Spirit's Angel.]]
* PurpleEyes
* PurpleIsPowerful
* PurpleIsTheNewBlack: Her [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Inverse form.]]
* RapunzelHair
* RedOniBlueOni: The Red to Origami's Blue.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge[=/=]UnstoppableRage: Goes ballistic when she she thought Origami killed Shido.
* SheIsTheKing: When she gives in to her SuperpoweredEvilSide, Isaac Westcott calls her the Demon King.
* SupernaturalIsPurple: As shown when she uses her abilities.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: When Ellen stabs Shido from behind, in front of her, she taps into this. It takes a kiss from Shido to bring her back.
* SwordBeam: Her main form of attack as a Spirit. Becomes even more impressive when she uses her Angel for her FinishingMove Halvanhelev.
* SwordOverHead: Once in Volume 1. And multiple times in Volume 7.
* TechnicolorEyes: Her eyes are purple with a small hint of gold.
* {{Tsundere}}: Type B.
* UndeadTaxExemption: While some characters comment on her background, no one seems to bring up her being a Spirit while she's in the same class as Shido, including Origami, oddly enough.
** Explained in the novel Reine gave Touka such a detailed background that Origami's superiors up to the highest ranks were not convinced she is the same being as the Spirit known as Princess and have denied her every attempt to investigate her directly as she apparently has all the paperwork on file that she is nothing more then a normal citizen much to Origami's frustration.
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: She doesn't know why seeing Shido kiss Yoshino (it was on accident) [[LoveHurts felt so painful]].
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A for her school uniform. She also wears this under her Astral Dress. It's more noticeable on her SuperpoweredEvilSide.

[[folder:Origami Tobiichi]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/origamitobiichi_8337.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' Misuzu Togashi (Japanese), Michelle Lee (English)

A girl who's top in beauty, brains and brawn. Shido's classmate, and has ''very'' strong feelings for him, for reasons unknown. Is a member of the AST, and holds the rank of Master Sergeant. Due to the death of her parents to a Spirit, she hates Spirits very much, to the extent of wanting to kill them on sight. %%To the extent that she even used AST equipment without permission to kill Kotori who she thought killed her parents (turns out that she didn't), and was put under house arrest for two months.

%%->Angel: Metatron ([[CoolCrown Crown)\\
%%Astral Dress:AHYH]]
----
* TheAce
** BrokenAce
* BadassNormal: She's the only human girl within Shido's harem yet she is able to kickass.
** Becomes EmpoweredBadassNormal as of Volume 10, as she seems to have become [[http://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/images/c/c3/DAL_v10_cover.jpg a Spirit herself.]]
* ByronicHero
* ChildSoldier: Joined the AST after her parents were killed by a Spirit.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Towards Shido. In episode 10 of the anime, while trying to visit Mana at the hospital, Shido runs into Origami who was walking. She asks him if Tohka is okay, and when he tells her she is, Origami lets off an annoyed grunt. She later insults and patronizes Tohka in episode 11 while picking out a swimsuit.
* TheComicallySerious
* CrazyPrepared: Specifically, her house. As in ''sentry guns'' are there to keep intruders out. There's even signal jamming.
* DespairEventHorizon: Realizing that she was the one who killed her own parents five years prior, she [[SuperpoweredEvilSide inverts and goes catatonic.]]
* EasilyForgiven: She apologizes to Shido in the classroom for shooting him. He's embarrassed, so he accepts her apology rather quickly.
* EmotionlessGirl: [[http://funnymama.com/post/178349 She almost never changes facial expressions.]]. One of the few time she does is Shido notices she looks afraid when she see's Efreet!Kotori for the first time.
* FauxActionGirl: Is constantly outclassed by the other characters. Although to be fair, she is only human, not a super-powered Spirit from a different dimension.
* GoMadFromTheRevelation
* HairDecorations
* HeroicBSOD[=/=]MyGodWhatHaveIDone: When she shot a hole in Shido. (He [[HealingFactor gets better.]])
* MysticalWhiteHair
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Frequently has moments like these due to her extremist tendencies. Her attempts to subdue Spirits with violence often makes things worse instead of better. Like accidentally sniping Shido and enraging Tohka, when she was just about to be sealed.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Blue to Tohka's Red.
* ReiAyanamiExpy: She even has the ChildSoldier who drives Mecha vs PersonOfMassDestruction thing going.
* RevengeBeforeReason: Let's just say that her attempt to kill Kotori by stealing high grade weapons then firing them in an amusement park wasn't particularly wise.
* SelfMadeOrphan: In Volume 10, where having gone back five years in time to attack Phantom, a stray attack of hers ended up killing her parents. Which means that '''''she''''' was the one who killed her own parents five years ago, and caused her extreme hatred of Spirits.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: She has no qualms about trying to seduce Shido, and will often get close to him and when making him take her temperature at the hospital, sits on his lap to do so.
* SkywardScream: She doing this after realized that she killed her own parents.
* TheSnarkKnight: She has shades of this, usually when insulting Tohka.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: [[JapaneseRomanization Hepburn "Tobiichi" vs Nihon-Shiki "Tobiiti"]] The former is used in the light novels and anime, while the latter is used in all of the manga adaptations. Also, her first and last name get mixed up quite frequently.
* StalkerWithACrush: She ''smells Shido's clothes'' when he's having physical education. Taken UpToEleven in the [[Manga/DateAOrigami 4-koma spinoff]] (then again, maybe that's her ''downplayed'' version).
* TheStoic
* SugarAndIcePersonality
* TooKinkyToTorture: For lack of a better word, at least; she's so indifferent to her environment she'd do anything Shido asks her to do without hesitating even a second and absolutely not a care to other people's reactions. Which means that if he were to ask her to dress up an embarrassing costume and get on all fours, she'd do just that, as seen in the OVA (it involves a school swimsuit, dog ears/tail and a leash ''that is actually Shido's belt that she wraps around her neck herself'').
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Even by AST standards.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart
* YouAreWhatYouHate
* [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Parents]]: To Kotori. Turns out that wasn't the case, and that it was another Spirit who did it. In fact, this is why she's so bent on killing the Spirits.
** However, in Volume 10, she's responsible for killing her own parents.
* ZettaiRyouiki: While dressed up as a {{Meido}} when Shido visits her. Also when she's in her CR-Unit.

[[folder:Kotori Itsuka]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kotoriitsuka_9676.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AyanaTaketatsu (Japanese), Bryn Apprill (English)

Shido's [[NotBloodSiblings foster younger sister.]] Loves her Chupa Chups lollipops. Commander of the ''[[CoolShip Fraxinus]]''. Her personality depends on the ribbons she's wearing: she acts like a perfectly normal girl her age when she's wearing white ribbons, but switches to a {{Dominatrix}} when she's wearing black ribbons. Nevertheless, [[{{Tsundere}} she still cares deeply for Shido.]]

%%She's also the Spirit codenamed Efreet, having been turned into one by the Phantom, who then told her to kiss Shido to seal her powers. This was how she learned about Shido's ability to seal Spirits' powers. She takes them back to save him from Kurumi in Volume 3, then has them sealed again in Volume 4.

->Code name: "Efreet"\\
Angel: Camael ([[AnAxeToGrind Hal]][[BladeOnAStick berd]])\\
Astral Dress: Elohim Gibor
----
* AnAxeToGrind[=/=]BladeOnAStick: Her Angel's default form.
* {{BFG}}: Her Angel can change into one.
* BloodKnight: As Efreet.
* CatchPhrase: ''"Alright then; Let Our Date Begin"'' to kick off each "mission".
* ClingyJealousGirl: To Shido when [[LongLostRelative Mana's]] around. She also doesn't take him telling her that he loves her...like a sister...too well.
* CryCute: Has her moments, such as When Shido had a real chance of getting KilledOffForReal in the process of saving Yoshino.
** CryIntoChest
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* {{Dominatrix}}: Has these tendencies when wearing her black ribbons.
* {{Expy}}: [[RapunzelHair Long]] [[GirlishPigtails twintails]]? Check. [[PlayingWithFire Literal]] FieryRedhead and [[CurtainsMatchTheWindow matching eyes]]? Check. Black [[HairDecorations ribbons]]? Check. ZettaiRyouiki? Check. You'd almost confuse her for a younger-looking [[LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan Kuuko]]. Both are even prone to InsaneTrollLogic!
* FieryRedhead: [[PlayingWithFire Literally.]]
* FirstEpisodeSpoiler: She's revealed to be the commander of the ''Fraxinus'' in the first chapter/episode.
** The fact that she and Shido are NotBloodSiblings can also count as this in the light novel.
* FreudianSlip: While having an argument with [[LongLostRelative Mana]] regarding who is the better younger sister to Shido, [[NotBloodSiblings Kotori]] lets out that blood siblings can't marry.
* GirlishPigtails
* HairDecorations: Her ribbons. They determine her personality!
* HealingFactor: Shido's HealingFactor comes from her. She in turn got it from Phantom.
* IdiotHair
* ImprobableAge: She's the commander of a CoolShip in Ratatoskr at the age of 13.
* InsaneTrollLogic: Is prone to this at times.
* LittleSisterHeroine: When we first meet her, Kotori is this TurnedUpToEleven. Shido even [[LampShadeHanging calls]] her his [[PhraseCatcher "cute little sister"]]. It then gets [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] when we meet her other [[ShanaClone personality]].
* NotBloodSiblings
* OralFixation
* ParentalAbandonment: Both her parents are working overseas, and there is no mention of them coming back anytime soon.
* PhraseCatcher: To Shido, she's his "cute little sister". Regardless of the ribbons she wears.
* PlayingWithFire: As Efreet, again.
* RapunzelHair
* ShanaClone: Small, {{Tsundere}} (type A or type B depending on the color of her ribbons), RapunzelHair, Grade S ZettaiRyouiki, a fondness of lollipops and a literal FieryRedhead to boot. She even has an IdiotHair just like the original.
* SpitTake: When she first sees Shido and Tohka go on a date.
* SplitPersonality: More of switching personalities though. She'll be the nice little sister with her white ribbons, or the sadistic commander with her black ribbons. This is because when Shido bought her the black ribbons for her 9th birthday, he made her promise to be a strong girl as long as she wears them. Guess it worked too well. Though Shido doesn't think of her as a LoveInterest.
** Played straighter when her [[BloodKnight "Efreet" Spirit powers]] [[SuperPoweredEvilSide return.]]
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: As Efreet, [[RuleOfThree yet again.]] And it's implied later on that her Efreet Spirit form [[UpToEleven may have its own]] SuperpoweredEvilSide.
* SweetTooth
* SwissArmyWeapon: Her Angel can change form, from a [[AnAxeToGrind Hal]][[BladeOnAStick berd]] to a {{BFG}}.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Lollipops, which according to the light novel carry the Chupa Chups brand.
* TokenMiniMoe
* {{Tsundere}}: Strong type A or mild type B depending on her ribbons (black or white).
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: She's very weak towards horror-related things.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: A classic example.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade S, except her Astral Dress.

[[folder:Yoshino]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yoshino_817.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/IoriNomizu (Japanese), Creator/TiaBallard (English)

Second Spirit to appear. She's very shy and relies on her HandPuppet Yoshinon to communicate with others. She causes rain to fall whenever she appears, which is part of her ability to control the three states of water. Mainly uses ice attacks though. Shido seals her powers at the end of Volume 2.

->Code name: "Hermit"\\
Angel: Zadkiel ([[HandPuppet Puppet]])\\
Astral Dress: El
----
* ActualPacifist[=/=]TechnicalPacifist: Doesn't even fight back against the AST if she can help it.
* AnIcePerson
* AnimalMotifs: Rabbit. Her Angel even takes the shape of one.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Much like Tohka, Yoshino becomes a little friendlier thanks to Shido being nice to her rather than trying to shoot her on sight.
* BerserkButton: Implying to Yoshinon that Yoshino and Yoshinon are separate is sure to rile Yoshinon up, if Yoshino hasn't warmed up to you yet.
* ConsultingMisterPuppet: Yoshinon
* CovertPervert: Considering some of Yoshinon's comments...
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* DarkHorseVictory: Wins a date with Shido over Tohka and Origami who had been competing with each other for most of the session. To be fair, Yoshinon had declared earlier on that Yoshino would win, though that was likely said in jest.
* EarlyBirdCameo: In the anime, when it suddenly starts raining during Tohka and Shido's first date in Episode 3, you can see Yoshino in front of the arcade they take shelter in.
* EyepatchOfPower: Yoshinon, as well as Yoshino's Angel.
* FragileFlower
* GratuitousEnglish: At the very end of episode 5 of the anime, Yoshinon says "To be continued!"
* HandPuppet: Yoshinon.
* InTheHood: Her Astral Dress.
* MakingASplash: Implied since she's said to be able to manipulate the three states of water, [[InformedAbility though she's never been seen using any water-based moves,]] other than the fact that [[PowerIncontinence it rains every time she comes into this world.]]
* NiceGirl: A very friendly young girl at heart.
* NiceHat: Wears one after her powers are sealed. Her rabbit-eared coat is pretty neat also. In fact, it's stated that she likes wearing cute hats.
* OnlyOneName
* PowerIncontinence: Suffers this even more so than other Spirits; if anything happens to Yoshinon, Yoshino's mental state becomes unstable and she ends up either causing rain (at best) or freezing stuff around her (at worst). Also, it rains whenever she comes into this world.
* PowerLimiter: Sort of. Yoshinon calms her down enough for her not to use her powers on others.
* RedOniBlueOni[=/=]SplitPersonality: Yoshinon is the outspoken fellow while Yoshino is a shy girl.
* ShrinkingViolet: She becomes this if Yoshinon isn't on her hand.

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kurumitokisaki_2383.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AsamiSanada (Japanese), Creator/AlexisTipton (English)

The third Spirit to appear, and the most brutal so far, having had a kill count of over 10000, and one of the few Spirits so far in the series to actively kill people with her powers rather than by spacequakes alone. She kills her targets by dragging them into her shadow, "eating" them, thus replenishing her lifespan so she can cast her powers. Manages to defeat Mana, Tohka and Origami as well as subdue Shido, who she wants to "eat". %%Gets defeated by Kotori early in Volume 4 who retrieves her Spirit powers from Shido to save him. Her purpose for accumulating lifespan is revealed at the end of the Volume: it's to obtain enough power to travel 30 years back in time to kill the First Spirit who caused the first spacequake 30 years ago, as well as enough left over to do the job. The motives behind this are unclear. As Shido has other Spirits' powers sealed inside him, "eating" him will enable her to do all this.

%%She returns at the end of Volume 6 to help Shido rescue Tohka, so that she can use him as a distraction to find the Second Spirit, who is the only one who knows where the First Spirit is. She fails, though.

* BitchInSheepsClothing: Prior to her HeelFaceTurn.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: "You shoot a kitten with BB Guns? You fucking DIE."
* CastFromLifespan: Her 12 Bullet time powers. A rare case of the lifespan being replenishable... by killing other people (which makes it more of CastFromHitPoints). After being defeated by Kotori, she no longer kills them, but just weakens them.

[[folder:Yamai]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yamaitwins_9359.jpg
->'''Both voiced by:''' Creator/MaayaUchida (Japanese)

Twin Spirits who appear in Volume 5. They were originally one entity, but for reasons unknown got split into two: Kaguya and Yuzuru. These 2 have very distinctive personalities, and the original personality is gone. They cause a storm every time they appear.

The duo have been fighting 99 times to determine who is the real Yamai, with 25 wins each and 49 draws. On seeing Shido, they decided that their 100th and final battle will be to see who can seduce Shido first. %%It turns out that all along they had each wanted the other to live, and on knowing that the other thought the same, they ended up fighting each other in the hopes of getting killed first. Due to Shido's intervention and [[TakeAThirdOption giving them the option of both living on as Yamai, they stop fighting and fall in love with him for real, instead of seeing him as just a trophy.]]

->Code name: "Berserk"\\
Angel: Raphael ([[ArcherArchetype Bow]])\\
Astral Dress: Elohim Tzabaoth

!!The twins share the following tropes:
----
* ArcherArchetype: Their Angel's true form is of a bow.
* BlowYouAway
* ChainedByFashion: Their astral dresses have manacles on one leg and one arm, with broken chains. The positioning shows that they were originally [[ChainedHeat chained to each other]].
* {{Clingy Jealous Girl}}s: Towards Shido.
* CombinationAttack: They can do these in battle. Or when playing beach volleyball. Or seducing Shido. Also, this is how they manifest the bow El Kanaph, which is the true form of their Angel. They pull one off with Yoshino in book 9, blowing away an AST team that dropped their territories to avoid Yoshino freezing them.
* CryCute: When they finally admit to each other that they want to live on together. Kaguya plays it much straighter than Yuzuru.
* EarlyBirdCameo: They briefly show up in the OVA, playing VideoGame/{{Breakout}} in the arcade. [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight Amusingly enough, both are in Spirit form.]]
* TheImmodestOrgasm: When Shido applies suntan lotion on them at the beach.
* LiteralSplitPersonality: It's what they are.
* LovelyAngels: Played straight, [[LiteralMinded their weapons notwithstanding.]]
* {{New Transfer Student}}s: They join Shido's school (though they're not in his class) in the middle of Volume 5, right in the middle of a field trip.
* OjouRinglets: They both got them and they are really long. Probably because they look like cyclones of course.
* PowerGivesYouWings: They each gain one wing when they manifest their Angels. These two wings form the two limbs of their Angel's actual form, a bow.
* PolarOppositeTwins
* PowerIncontinence: A storm appears whenever they do.
* RedOniBlueOni: Kaguya is the Red and Yuzuru is the Blue.
** ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Their Astral Dresses, to an extent. Kaguya's is purple and Yuzuru's is blue.
* '''{{Stripperiffic}}''': Just ''look'' at their Astral Dresses! If they could even be called Astral ''[[NonindicativeName Dresses]]'', that is.
* TwinThreesomeFantasy: They decide on this by agreeing to share Shido at the end of Volume 5, the rest of his harem notwithstanding. [[ClingyJealousGirl Of course, they're not about to share him with the other girls if they could help it.]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: Their Astral Dresses.

First appears in Volume 6. She is shown to be an IdolSinger, with her Spirit power being a magic voice. Hates guys a lot (girls don't fare much better; she sees them only as slaves fit to serve her), so Shido had to crossdress just to approach her. It works; Miku ends up becoming really fond of "Shiori".

%%[[UnsettlingGenderReveal Naturally, she goes ballistic when she finds out the truth (it doesn't help that she was already very angry at losing to teamwork). Then Shido tries to get her to help him save Tohka who got kidnapped by the DEM, and unable to believe that Shido was really going to do it, with or without her, she joins him to see how he'll end up. At his insistence, she later tells him her past, which involves her fans turning against her due to a false scandal, and her losing her voice because of it, which nearly drove her to suicide before the Phantom turned her into a Spirit and gave her her magic voice. She believed that without her voice, no one would protect her, believe her, or even listen to her. Shido says he'll protect her if she's ever in danger, like he would for Tohka, which she doesn't believe. Then when it really happens courtesy of Tohka's SuperpoweredEvilSide, he keeps his promise, and she later trusts him enough to let him seal her powers by the end of Volume 7.]]

* DrivenToSuicide: Before the Phantom approached her and turned her into a Spirit.
* TheGlomp: Gives one to Shido at the end of volume 7.
* HairDecorations: No matter her clothes, theres' always at least a small flower-shaped hair clip in her hair. Her Astral Dress adds a big crescent moon to the flower.
** In Volume 8, her removing of said clip so Shido would have something to remember her with if she disappeared gives him the final clue for identifying who Natsumi disguised as.
** FlowerInHerHair: While in her Astral Dress. They appear to be lilies.
* HeelFaceTurn
* IdolSinger
* {{Jerkass}}: She sees the Tenguu theatre, where she had never performed before. And she's in the mood to sing. However, there is a large crowd of people in her way. What does she do? ''Cause a spacequake to get rid of the crowd.'' She does get better though.

[[folder:Natsumi]]
A Spirit who makes her first appearance in Volume 8. Shido's the first non-AST person she met. Things were going well in his attempt to seal her powers. Then she sneezes, causing a flash of light, and her getting angry at him because he saw something about her that she didn't want him to see (he actually didn't get to see anything). She takes the form of Shido and makes advances on all his acquaintances in school before being found out by Tohka and Origami, after which she escapes and issues Shido photos of 12 people close to him, and challenges him to find her out before they all disappear.

%%It turns out that she had disguised herself as Yoshinon, Yoshino's puppet, from the fact that Yoshinon was able to react to something Yoshino couldn't, and that Yoshinon knew of its time in Origami's house, both of which were impossible since Yoshinon was a SplitPersonality of Yoshino, meaning it couldn't know anything that Yoshino didn't, and that outside of Yoshino's control Yoshinon was nothing more than a puppet. Natsumi releases everyone she captured, but inadvertently shows her true form in front of the main cast, which causes her to go berserk and [[FountainOfYouth change them into 9-year-old children before escaping again.]]
