!!Keita Ibuki
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/DaisukeNamikawa (JP), JasonGriffith (EN)
->'''Tera Guardian:''' Kuro
----
* BeamSpam: His Thousand in a nutshell. It allows him to fire lasers individually, or all at once. When he uses it against Nanase, it even takes the form of a [[WaveMotionGun wave motion cannon!]]
* [[spoiler: [[CallingTheOldManOut Calling his Ex-Best Friend Out]]: Keita chews Daichi out royally, when he realizes what his real intentions are.]]
* CartwrightCurse: Nearly all the people he cares about die on him, including [[spoiler: his mother]], his classmate, Lisa, and his neighbor's daughter, Mayu. [[KillTheCutie Especially]] [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath poor]] [[TheCutie Mayu....]]
* {{Determinator}}: Is he ever!
** Keita survived having his terra drained, by Nanase, in order to get to Kuro. When Nanase catches up to to him, she smashes his skull with a rock, and drains what little terra he had left, while giving him a MotiveRant. Keita uses what little strength he has left to wrap his legs around her neck and slam her into the rocks, knocking her unconscious, so he can finally sync with Kuro, against Hiyou. Keita's desire to protect Kuro deepened their bond to such an extent that [[spoiler: they both gained dual crests!]]
* [[spoiler: [[DoomedProtagonist Died Happy]]: At the end of the anime, having lived the rich full life Kuro wanted for him. As a show of gratitude, he takes the curse of the Doppeliner System with him.]]
* HeroicRROD: Keita collapses twice, at different points, due to the excessive strain syncing puts on him, because he's a Sub. Which is part of the reason [[spoiler: Kuro leaves him in the end.]]
** [[spoiler: YourDaysAreNumbered: Had he continued to synchronize with Kuro for much longer, the strain would have eventually killed him.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: In the manga version.
** JerkassFacade: In the anime adaptation, where it's revealed he acts this way in an effort to keep others from getting close to him, due to his CartwrightCurse.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Very, ''very'' deep down he's a good guy.
* [[spoiler: LiteralChangeOfHeart: Covered in Kuro's section below.]]
* NonActionGuy: Keita fits the description, 'til after their fight with Excel and Steiner. Before Keita, Akane, and Kuro leave for Okinawa, Excel gives him a Thousand to use in battle.
* SomeoneElsesProblem: Starts off thinking this way, in regard to his pact with Kuro. That is, until Excel and, much later, Shingo set him straight.
-->'''Shingo; (watching [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown as Mikami beats Kuro]])''' "I don't understand. [[AllTakeAndNoGive That girl is willing to risk her life for you.]] [[WhatTheHellHero Aren't you willing to risk yours for her?"]]

* [[spoiler:ApocalypseMaiden: It's eventually revealed that she's the reincarnation of third member of the Masagami, who cursed the world with the Doppeliner System.]]
* BadassAdorable: Also see CuteBruiser below.
* BigEater: Which isn't helped by the fact Punipuni often swipes whatever food she manages to get ahold of.
* BoxingBattler: She is often frowned upon for using boxing, a human fighting style, when she fights. Doesn't stop her from usually winning. This is changed in the anime to her being more of a BareFistedMonk.
* CuteBruiser: With emphasis on both parts. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLToP6xF5tU Just ask this guy.]]
** LightningBruiser: As seen in the preceding link. This increases as she gets stronger.
* CallingYourAttacks: Once she learns how to use her Exceed. From then on, expect to hear: "Exceed... Mega EXE!!" at least once, or twice, per battle.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Mainly in the anime version.
** FootFocus: Which is why you can expect to see plenty of closeups of them.
* GenkiGirl: With all the crap she has to put with, you'll wonder how she does it. At least, until [[spoiler: Keita tells her that she doesn't have to hide her pain anymore, and says it's okay for her to cry. Then the dam breaks.]]
* [[spoiler: IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: She comes to realize that the Doppleliner System would remain in effect, as long as she and Keita are bonded to each other. In the end, she parts ways with him and returns to The Pure Place, where she remains 'til the end of her days.]]

* [[spoiler: NearRapeExperience: Hiyou finally gets her alone and was moments away from doing this, when Keita arrives.]]
* NoIndoorVoice: Because she's so hyper. Keita and Akane usually have to tell her to tone it down, which she finally does.
* NoSocialSkills: No surprise, given she's had no exposure to the outside world, 'til now.
* NubileSavage: Her initial appearance gives this impression, but she's actually a [[spoiler: TomboyPrincess.]]
* {{Pettanko}}: And doesn't seem to mind, not that anyone calls attention to it.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Not relying on WaifFu, Kuro can hold her own and even mop the floor with guys better than twice her size.
* RedHeadedHeroine: Though it's closer to violet.
* [[spoiler:RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: She's the princess of the Shinshingami Clan, and is devoted to restoring balance to the Doppeliner System... until she learns thet truth about it.]]
** [[spoiler: TomboyPrincess: Hiyou refers to her as such, right before [[AttemptedRape attempting to rape her.]]]]
* ShesGotLegs: [[KickChick A perfect pair to kick ass with.]]
* [[spoiler: TomatoInTheMirror: When she finally realizes she's the reincarnation of one of the Masagami.]]

!!Akane Sano
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/SayakaOhara (JP), Creator/JulieAnnTaylor (EN)
->'''Tera Guardian:''' [[spoiler: Reishin]]
----
* ChildhoodFriends: With Keita. She's old enough to be his big sister, but she's [[ChildhoodFriendRomance secretly in love with him.]]
* ClingyJealousGirl: Akane gets the wrong idea when Kuro tries to sleep in the same bed as Keita, to deepen their synchronization, and stays overnight to keep anything from happening. She has another bout of jealousy after seeing Excel kiss Keita.
* CuteClumsyGirl: Her blouse gets caught on her locker, in the first episode, which exposes her cleavage. Also see the RunningGag entry below.
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn: Subverted. It initially appears this way when Keita and Kuro learn sshe's become Reishin's Contractee. It's eventually revealed she was trying to help Reishin to rid the world of the Masagami and the Doppeliner System.]]
* FeminineWomenCanCook: She takes it upin herself to prepare meals for Keita ever since [[spoiler: his mom died]], and because she has feelings for him.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Including Yuki, when [[spoiler: Daichi]] tries to kill her; despite the fact Yuki had threatened to kill Akane with the very same gun, only moments prior.
* LikeBrotherAndSister: Kuro even mistook her for Keita's sister at first.
* MessianicArchetype: She takes in Kuro and feeds her, after finding her passed out near Keita's apartment. And as seen above, she even shielded Yuki to keep [[spoiler: Daichi]] from killing her. Akane even goes so far as to [[spoiler: become Reishin's Contractee in order to help rid the world of the Masagami and the Doppeliner System.]]
* RapunzelHair: Not as long as Riona's, but still very long.
* RunningGag: Her habit of absentmindedly pouring too much tea whenever she's put on the spot about her feelings for Keita.

!!Excel
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/YukariTamura (JP), Creator/StephanieSheh (EN)
->'''Tera Guardian:''' Steiner, [[spoiler: Mikami]]
----
* [[BarrierWarrior Barrier Madien]]: Her Thousand's special ability: Hexa Wall. Later, she improves with it enough that she can project it anywhere on the field, and even project multiple barriers at once.
** AttackReflector: By the third time she fights [[spoiler: Reishin]], she's improved it so it can absorb enemy attacks and redirect them back at the target.
** BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame: Her improved Hexa Wall surrounds the target on all sides to draw all fire from any direction. Then redirects it back at the target in an omni-directional barrage.
* DeadpanSnarker: In regards to Kuro's lack of understanding as a Tera Guardian, and Keita's failure to grasp what it means to be a Contractee. So she and Steiner had to explain it to them.
* [[spoiler: DeathSeeker: She becomes one, after Steiner's death. Mikami calls her out on it, right as they prepare to face Reshin.]]
* ElegantGothicLolita: Dresses in a black and white Victorian style attire.
* EmotionlessGirl: [[spoiler: Eventually subverted after Steiner dies.]]
* {{Expy}}: Of [[BlazBlue Rachel Alucard]]:
** They [[ElegantGothicLolita dress similarly]], so are their [[TheStoic mannerisms]], both are pale skinned blondes, they're both nobility, both are OlderThanTheyLook despite their childlike appearances, both are well informed about the innerworkings taking place behind the scenes of their respective canons, and both take an interest in their respective protagonists.
** The pattern of Excel's Hexa Wall even resembles the menu screens from BlazBlue!
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: She's just under 5' ft, which makes her look tiny next to Steiner.
* NotSoStoic: [[spoiler: She has an emotional breakdown when Steiner dies.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: Excel may look like a child, but she isn't.
** [[spoiler:ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: The extra episode shows that she is around 100 years old.]]

* WeakButSkilled: Also covered by the [[BarrierWarrior Barrier Maiden]] related entries.

!!Steiner
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JojiNakata (JP), Creator/PatrickSeitz (EN)
->'''Contractee:''' Excel
----
* BadassLongcoat: As in, black leather.
* BigDamnHeroes: When he saves Akane from nearly being run over by a Tribal End. Also a literal example, given he's over 6' ft tall.
* TheBigGuy: Steiner's over 6' ft of solid muscle, and [[LightningBruiser don't think for a second that it slows him down.]]
* BloodKnight: Before he and [[spoiler: Reishin]] begin their duel, Steiner admits relishing the opportunity, since it would allow him to finally fight without having to hold back.
* DefeatMeansRespect: [[spoiler: Reishin]] expresses his heartfelt admiration of Steiner's commitment to his duty as a Terra Guardian, after [[spoiler: killing him.]]
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Compared to Excel and pretty much anyone else, for that matter.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: At the end of his duel with Reishin.]]
* LightningBruiser: Especially when he's using his Exceed, which allows him to move so fast he creates an army of clones.
* TheMenInBlack: The standard attire of The Noble Ones.
* OneManArmy: A quite literal example, as Steiner's "Stampede" ability allows him to move fast enough to create an army of speed clones that can attack autonomously. Including individually, in groups, or all at once!
* UndyingLoyalty: To Excel. So much that he [[spoiler: had one of his Stampede Copies carry her to safety, right before he died.]]

!!Yakumo
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/HirofumiNojima (JP), Creator/WilWheaton (EN, All but Episode 13), TaliesinJaffe (EN, Episode 13 only)
->'''Contractee:''' Riona Kogure
----
* {{Badass}}: Just because he prefers to cut and run, doesn't mean he won't kick your ass (and do it in style!) if he has to; especially if you threaten either Kuro, or Riona.
* BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins: His attire somewhat resembles this, including the feathered hair clip he wears.
* CowardlyLion: Yakumo would much rather run, than fight, if he can help it. Even though he's capable of curbstomping Tribal Ends.
* DeclarationOfProtection: Toward Kuro, since it's his sworn duty to protect [[spoiler: the princess of the Shinshingami Clan]], and toward Riona, who's his Contractee.
* ICanStillFight: He'll often insist this, even when he's clearly injured and in need of care.
* MartialPacifist: Unlike other Tera Guardians, Yakumo prefers not to fight and will go to great lengths to avoid doing so, unless it absolutely cannot be helped.
* NiceGuy: Yakumo is polite, humble, and considerate of those around him.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Riona... maybe.
* WeakButSkilled: Yakumo isn't as strong as most other Tera Guardians, but is so proficient in martial arts, that he rarely needs his to use his Exceed. In fact, he's only forced to use it three times!
* WellExcuseMePrincess: Double subverted, since Kuro never complains about him, and he realizes Riona's griping stems from concern about his well being.

!!Riona Kogure
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ShizukaIto (JP), EmilyBauer (EN)
->'''Tera Guardian:''' Yakumo
----
* GenkiGirl: She's pretty upbeat, considering the type of situation she and Yakumo are in. Then again she...
** JumpedAtTheCall: After learning about the Doppleliner System and finding out she was a Main Root, she voluntarily became Yakumo's Contractee, in order to protect herself.
* HollywoodNerd: She usually wears her school uniform and a frumpy looking jacket, but she's pretty cute and, if her synchro sequence is any indication, she's got a bangin' bod.
* MegaNekko: Part of her HollywoodNerd image.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Yakumo. Though it's implied she may have had feelings for him when [[spoiler: he parts ways with her, at the end of the anime version.]]
* RapunzelHair: Her hair extends well past her waist, despite wearing it in a ponytail.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: She fled the Kaionji Group once she learned they were planning to experiment on her, because she's a Main Root. Which is also the reason she made a pact with Yakumo.
* [[BigEater Snack-aholic]]: She's constantly eating some sort of junk foood.
* [[PrettyFreeloader Some Help You Are!]]: She feels this way about Nam, since Nam's always mooching of her, yet she never seems willing to help them. Nam eventually makes up for it, but [[spoiler: runs off with her snacks in the end!]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Type B, for the most part. She only chews Yakumo out when she's worried about him.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Cerulean blue.

!!Mikami Houjou
->'''Voiced by:''' YukoKaida (JP), MaryElizabethMcGlynn (EN)
->'''Contractee:''' Shingo, [[spoiler: Excel]]
----
* BloodKnight: She and Shingo used to enjoy battling together to showoff their might. At least, until [[spoiler: it started to take a toll on Shingo's health, because he was a Sub.]]
* BoobsOfSteel: She has one of the biggest busts in the cast and the power that comes with it.
* CombatStilettos: Of the high heeled variety.
* ConsummateProfessional: She's very businesslike, when accepting assignments. But [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown the way]] she carries out those assignments is pretty brutal.
* CoolShades: Usaually worn while discussing business, or accepting job offers.
* [[spoiler: DeathSeeker: Mikami recognized it in Excel, because she had become one herself, after Shingo died.]]
* FieryRedhead: Mainly when she's fighting, otherwise, she's pretty reserved.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Her Exceed boils down to pinning her opponent and beating the sh*t out of them, [[UsefulNotes/UltimateFightingChampionship UFC style.]]
* [[spoiler: PleaseDontLeaveMe: Has a heartwrenching one when Shingo dies, due to the strain from synchronizing with her, because he was a Sub.]]
-->[[spoiler: Mikami: ([[TearsOfRemorse tearfully]]) "I'm sorry, Shingo... This wasn't stylish at all.]]
* ProfessionalKiller: [[spoiler: Hiyou]] usually hires her to take out Tribal Ends, [[YouHaveFailedMe that have failed him.]]

!!Nam
->'''Voiced by:''' Yukana (JP), Eva Kaminsky (EN)
----
* BigEater: Moreso than Kuro, much to Riona's chagrin. As shown in the manga, she'll even take time to snack while fighting 40+ Tribal Ends.
* [[BigBrotherMentor Big Sister Mentor]]: In the manga, Nam becomes this for Kuro and Keita. At first, she kept her distance unless directly threatened, but when she learned of Kuro's circumstances, among other things, she began to play a more active role in the group dynamics.
* {{BFS}}: She uses a type of Korean sword that also functions as her 'Thousand'.
* BoobsOfSteel: Hers are even bigger than Akane's and Mikami's. She's also an order of magnitude more powerful than Kuro and Keita (and many other Tera Guardians/Contractors) synchronized. Nearly everyone who's taken her on has been [[CurbStompBattle handed their asses by her]], collectively or otherwise.
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve: Manga only. The reason she came to Japan in the first place was to get onto a TV show so she could enough money to rebuild and fund a temple to her own country's ''Shinryon'' (Tera Guardians).
* DeadpanSnarker: When Riona asks Nam why she doesn't help them, Nam snarkily replies that a scribe's job is to [[AskAStupidQuestion record history, not make history.]]
* EroticEating: She's often seen with bananas and such in her mouth.
* FlashStep: In the manga, she is so fast, she can create one ''hundred'' speed clones as a diversion.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Nam's weapon of choice is a sword called a [[http://www.arscives.com/historysteel/korean.swordlist.htm hosindo changpogeom]], a concealed sword .
* [[OurElvesAreBetter Our Tera Guardians Are Better]]: In the manga, she is similar to the Motosumitama in that they both considered Terra Guardians but Nam doesn't need to form a Contract with a human and is actually considered a minor deity in her own right with enough power to perform exorcisms.
* PrettyFreeloader: From Riona's point of view, since all Nam does is follow them around and mooch off of her. Yet, Nam never wants to help out, 'cuz she's a scribe. [[spoiler: She protects Riona several times, during the battle with the Masagami]], [[FunnyMoments but she runs off with her snacks at the end!]] She acts like this at first in the manga but she actually pulls her own weight and even helps to train Kuro and Keita in how to properly synchronize.
* [[SoLongSuckers See Ya Around, and Yoink!]]: She pulls this on Riona, at the end, by swiping her bag of snacks, as payment for services rendered, and runs off with it!
* SomeoneElsesProblem: At first anyway. But, as seen by the PrettyFreeloader entry, [[spoiler: she finally lends a hand when it counts, by saving Riona's life twice.]]

* BigBad: For much of the series, until it's revealed that he's actually [[spoiler: a WellIntentionedExtremist.]]
* BigBrotherInstinct: ''Anime version'' - You have to give respect to a guy [[spoiler: who's willing to slaughter members of his own tribe and family to save his little sister from being executed on her birthday. And knock the natural balance of the entire planet off kilter just for the chance to kill the dark god partially reincarnated as his sister in order to save her (and all life as we know it)]]. Additional awesomeness being voiced by both Creator/KatsuyukiKonishi in Japanese AND Creator/CrispinFreeman in English.
* CurbstompBattle: See HeroKiller and InvincibleVillain below, 'nuff said.
* TheDreaded: For good reason, see the next entry.
* HeroKiller: Reishin kills [[spoiler: Steiner, Bernhart]], and dozens of others, [[CurbstompBattle mops the floor with Kuro twice]], and easily repels/survives even the strongest Exceed abilities. The only ones to actually make him work for a win were [[spoiler: Steiner]], Kuro (during their final battle), and [[spoiler: the Masagami.]]
** InvincibleVillain: Reishin straddles the line between this trope and being an ImplacableMan. Bottom line: anyone who tries to fight him is going to lose... [[CurbstompBattle Badly.]]
* [[spoiler: NotWhatItLooksLike: It is actually the elders who killed the innocent people trying to protect Kuro, not him. Yakumo only saw the aftermath that made it looked like he killed everyone.]]
* NoKillLikeOverkill: Reishin's Exceed: Tera Cannon. Picture a ring of glowing orbs surrounding the target, then all of them going off simultaneously in the form of [[KameHameHadoken massive ki blasts]] that solidify as they impale the victim from every angle, in a 360 radius.
* PowerEchoes: Whenever he uses his Exceed ability.
* [[spoiler: RedemptionEqualsDeath: In the anime version, Reishin dies while attempting to kill the Masagami to save Kuro, and the rest of mankind. [[OneWingedAngel It came back, stronger than ever.]]]]
* SelfMadeOrphan: [[spoiler: With much reluctance... and remorse.]]
* SharpDressedMan: He dresses this way, while working with the Kaionji Group.
** TheCoatsAreOff: [[OhCrap ...and that's when shit gets real.]] Ask Kuro and [[spoiler: Steiner.]]
* [[spoiler:WellIntentionedExtremist: Everything he did in the anime was part of a scheme to both save his sister and permanently end the Masagami's threat to the world.]]
** [[spoiler:TheExtremistWasRight: Ultimately, his plan succeeds, allowing for the destruction of the Doppeliner System as a bonus.]]

!!Daichi Kuraki [[spoiler:Shun Sawamura]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/SatoshiHino (JP), ChristopherKromer (EN)
->'''Tera Guardian:''' Raiga
----
* BigBadFriend: Daichi is Keita's former best friend, who believed him to be dead.
* [[spoiler: DeadPersonImpersonation: Shun takes the place of one of his Subs, Daichi, who commited suicide. Since they looked identical, no one questioned it.]]
* DirtyCoward: How does he eliminate Hiyou and [[spoiler: Reishin]]? By waiting 'til they were both powerless from fighting Kuro (in Hiyou's case) and [[spoiler: Steiner]] in the latter's case. Then he talks smack.
* TheDragon: To Hiyou.
** DragonWithAnAgenda: Which is why he eventually betrays him.
* GadgeteerGenius: Daichi manufactures replica Thousands for his followers to use, which generate force shields.
* {{Jerkass}}: Smug, snide, condescending, self-important... you name it. It's no wonder he didn't have any friends, not that he was trying to make any.
** IShallTauntYou: Daichi loves talking down to those he feels are beneath him, and those he's betrayed. He even ridicules Hiyou and [[spoiler: Reishin]] to their faces... [[DirtyCoward once they're powerless, of course.]] Then has Raiga kill the former, and arranged to have the latter banished [[spoiler: through a wormhole.]]
** SmugSnake: Talks plenty of sh*t, when he takes advantage of Hiyou, who was left weakened from his battle with Kuro. And does the same to [[spoiler: Reishin]], by waiting 'til he's too exhausted from having fought [[spoiler: Steiner]] to defend himself. Which is when he has Raiga impale him, to use [[spoiler: Reishin's]] tera to empower his followers, [[IShallTauntYou all while taunting him.]]
** [[WhatMeasureIsAMook What Measure is a Sub?:]] For all his talks about peace and equality for Roots and Subs, Daichi doesn't give two sh*ts about Subs. Once he gets [[spoiler: Reishin]] out of his way, he mocks Yuki for being a Sub, in one of the cruelest [[ReasonYouSuckSpeech "reason you suck" speeches]] ever.
* KlingonPromotion: First he gets rid of Hiyou, then does the same [[spoiler: to Reishin]], so he can marry into the Kaionji Family and become it's new CEO.
* ManipulativeBastard: Covered in all of the {{Jerkass}} entries, and the preceding one.
* [[spoiler:KnightTemplar]]
* TheCracker: A textbook example. Daichi is often shown in his dark room watching an array of monitors, keeping tabs of various people [[ManipulativeBastard he intends to use, or manipulate]], to suit his ends.
* [[spoiler: UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans]]: It's his justification for for all the lives he's ruined and taken, but Keita sees through [[ItsAllAboutMe Daichi's bullshit]] and calls him on it.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: What he believes himself to be, but it's ultimately subverted when Keita makes him realize he was doing it for himself, rather than the good of others.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Pulls this on Hiyou when he betrays him and has him killed, by Raiga.

* HeelFaceTurn: As a result meeting finally meeting Akane, and the latter saving her life at personal risk to her own.
* [[spoiler: [[IJustWantToBeLoved I Just Want to Be Loved]]: She desperately wants to become a Master Root, like her siblings, since they all look down on her. She also feels it's the only way she'll ever gain her father's acceptance.]]
** [[spoiler: IJustWantToBeSpecial: She also hates being treated like less than a person, simply because she's a Sub.]]
* [[spoiler: HellishCopter: The Doppeliner System strikes again.]]
* MurderTheHypotenuse: Once Yuki learns that Daichi's been harboring Akane in the penthouse suite of the Kaionji Building, she confronts Akane with the intent to kill her, even if it meant [[spoiler: becoming a Negative Root. But she couldn't go through with it.]]
* [[spoiler: RedemptionEqualsDeath: A tragic case, [[AlasPoorVillain since you can't help feeling for her]], after all the crap she took from her family and Daichi.]]
* [[RichBitch Rich Bitch]][[TheOjou /TheOjou]]: She comes across this way for much of the series. [[TheUnfavorite There's a reason]] [[TheResenter for that.]]
* [[spoiler: TheUnfavorite: She's the only one of her father's children to not be Master Root. She's a Sub. Three guesses what they think of her.]]
* UnwittingPawn: To Daichi, who she thought was helping her. Instead, he was planning to kill her once he found her other Sub, and Akane, who's their Main Root. Which would have made Akane a Master Root. So he thought.

* {{Revenge}}: Raiga wants avenge the Hima Clan of Tera Guardians, who were nearly wiped out under Reishin's orders.
* SilentBob: Until he's face-to-face with Reishin, that is. Then he tells him exactly what he thinks of him.

->'''Voiced by:''' YumiTouma (JP), CarrieKeranen (EN)
->'''Tera Guardian:''' Hiyou
----
* BitchInSheepsClothing: When she first approaches Keita, she pretends to sympathetize with him over the loss of his mother. [[spoiler: She drops the act once he lets his guard down, and steals his tera, so he couldn't help Kuro.]]
** EvilTwin: Nanase was one of his mother's Subs, until she killed the other two to change her fate.
* HotConsort: A {{flashback}} reveals she's slept with Hiyou though, judging from her sullen expression, it seems she did it reluctantly.

* [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Woobie, Devourer of Souls]]: Since she's [[spoiler: a Negative Root]], she has to sustain her existence by siphoning the tera of others. [[spoiler: But it doesn't bring her the fulfillment she desires. Instead, it only adds to her misery.]]

* BlondGuysAreEvil: Hiyou routinely kills other Tera Guardians to further empower himself, has subordinates killed off when they fail him, and [[spoiler: tried to rape Kuro.]]
* BloodLust: It's the reason he fights, since it gives him an excuse to maim and torture his victims.
** CombatSadomasochist: While most Tera Guardians are [[BloodKnight BloodKnights]], save for [[MartialPacifist Yakumo]], Hiyou gets off on torture.
* {{Jerkass}}: See just about ''any'' of the related entires in his section.
* KarmicDeath: Daichi finds him weakened after he was defeated, by Kuro, and takes advantage of the situation by placing Hiyou in the very device he used to kill countless other Tera Guardians. [[KickTheSonOfABitch Then has Raiga do the honors.]]
* MakingASplash: His Exceed allows him to manipulate water by firing needle-like projectiles of it at his opponent. Or, he can turn it into shards of ice. And what's really scary is, he can also use it to manipulate the water in his victim's blood, though it requires him to make physical contact with their bodies.
* ShootTheMessenger: He vents his frustration at having lost to Kuro and Keita, by killing one of his Tribal Ends when they tried to relay a message from Daichi. Hiyou didn't even care what the message was about.
* SlasherSmile: Damn near constantly... unless he's pissed.
* SmugSnake: Hiyou thinks he's big time, but fails to notice he's being played by Daichi, 'til it's too late.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: After invoking this several times, he ends up being a victim of it, himself.
