[[WMG:John Thornton]]

A freshman, with psychic powers, and an extreme case of split personality.

----

* [[spoiler: BrainwashedAndCrazy]]
* ButtMonkey: He's even hated by his ''narrator''.
** Deconstructed. This trait was, largely, what made Ignius select John.
* CripplingOverspecialization
* [[spoiler: TheDragon: The most active of the bunch, in terms of relation to Ignius.]]
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Correction, ''only'' the guys want him.
* {{Flanderization}}: Played with. Whatever he feels affects his personality, thanks to his unstable mind, and that feeling gets amplified. This means there is a huge difference between when he is angry, when he is sleepy, etc.
* FunnySchizophrenia
** [[spoiler: Averted, after some meddling by [[RealityWarper Ignius]]]]
* MindOverMatter
* MoreThanMindControl
** PlayingWithFire: His prefered method of attacking.
* NonActionGuy: He is completely fine with staying in the sidelines.
** [[spoiler: [[TookALevelInBadass Not]] [[CorruptTheCutie anymore...]]]]
* OvershadowedByAwesome: So far, he has been outclassed in every ground, by other individuals with mental abilities.

[[WMG:Suzuki Haruo]]

A third-year student who loves jokes and pranks. He is generally easy-going, and pretty trusting.
----
Tropes associated with Suzuki:

* BlowYouAway
* GreenThumb: One of his powers is the ability to create clouds of mixed thorns and petals.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: If he used his powers right and had the skill to do so, his powers could deal extreme damage. As it is, they're pretty weak.

!The Esper Organization

[[WMG: Matthew Streika]]

A young man from America, this teenager has been working with the Organization for nearly a year now, and has a certain reputation with the nastier side of the supernatural. His ability is to create swords. He has come to Morimune hoping to make sure Ein Woe is not successful in what he has set out to do.

* BewareTheNiceOnes
** BerserkButton: Do not try to assassinate his new friends. Just don't. It will not end well for you, as a certain vampire assassin found out the hard way.
* {{Bishonen}}
* FightMagnet: He has a Holy Artifact in him, so its really a given.
* HeroesPreferSwords: It is all Matthew can use, really.
** FlechetteStorm
** ImplausibleFencingPowers
** MasterSwordsman: Skilled in many, many, many styles and switches between them easily.
** SwordBeam
** WaveMotionSword: The Aura Rave spell
* IdiotHero: Though perhaps not as dull as he acts sometimes...
* NiceGuy: Almost incredible, really, that he can go through so much and come out of it so nice and well adjusted. Matthew is, identity issues and dark side aside, a very kind, industrious and understanding individual who doesn't care who or what it is that is in danger, he will help out.
* PerpetualSmiler: [[StepfordSmiler A hint that not everything about Matthew is peachy.]]

!Antagonists:

!Ein Woe

* ArchEnemy: to Matthew and Johnson and Nathan.
* AristocratsAreEvil: Grand Duke Class Demon.
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority ''and'' AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Demons are classed and respect one another based on their rank.
* BigBad: Maybe, maybe not.
* CardCarryingVillain: Ein deeply enjoys all the evil he does.
* TheChessmaster: Skillfully orchestrates events in this fashion.
* TheCorrupter: Ein has a record with this trope.
* DarkIsEvil: Although he is mostly pale white, he wears a cult-like black outfit.
* DrivenToMadness: All it took was one bad day (the betrayal of Gabe, the almost-suicide of his perspective girlfriend, and then finding out why he was always a cast-out and that demons are "naturally evil".)
* {{Expy}}: One could make the case for Ein being, basically, a superpowered Joker.
* FacialHorror: Half his face is covered by a bone-like exoskeleton, his right eye is just a red slit.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: His canon backstory: abused bastard child, seeing hope for the first time in a certain school, and then having it brutally, utterly shot down right in front of him.
* MonsterClown: Has common characteristics attributed to them.
* MultipleChoicePast: Like the Joker, Ein has a couple backstories.
* SlasherSmile: Always described as smiling. Always.

!Ignius / Strife

A bizarre priestly boy from another world, Ignius seems to resemble Matthew to some degree, and has been orchestrating some events to seemingly avoid a catastrophe. However, his methods for accomplishing this are very dark indeed, and most of his traits and even his backstory remain hidden from sight. He appears to possess terrifyingly powerful reality warping abilities, enough to be a DimensionLord.

* AmbiguouslyEvil: While his stated intentions are good, he seems to employ a lot of really morally dark gray / black methods to get to this, including mind raping an innocent girl just to put her brother into another body (long story), brainwashing and artificially aging the PluckyComicRelief, and then he gave Black Blades to Tsuhiro.
* TheCorrupter: He has corrupted John and Tsuhiro into being his CoDragons.
* LightIsNotGood: Priestly appearance, white robe that screams "Pope", and white hair? Check. Morally dubious ways of trying to save the world? Incredibly secretive? Check.
* ManipulativeBastard: He knew exactly what to say to get Tsuhiro on his side, and he made sure to give John "peace of mind".
* MindRape: He uses this a lot.
* RealityWarper: Owns his own dimension, can control nearly everything in this dimension, including time and space, and is capable of "matter transmutation".
* TheStoic: Not much can phase Ignius
* WellIntentionedExtremist

!Samael

A mysterious masked man who appeared during the fight with Ein Woe and Jae'yon, and displayed very high levels of talent with his MagicalEye power, the Shinjinme. Next to nothing is known about him, other than that he is possibly even more powerful than Ein Woe, and has very personal stakes in this war. A HeroKiller of high caliber, in New Dawn proper he has a high kill count attached to his name.

* BerserkButton: In story, do not withhold information or fool around on a mission. Don't. [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe He hates that.]] Also, no female hostages. That will get you ripped apart. And heaven help you if you should try to ''rape your target''. That's a quick way to be stuck in a FateWorseThanDeath.
* '''BadAss''': [[spoiler: if your response to being tricked by Dolph into revealing your vulnerability, and then having one arm and one leg fall off due to being shredded by an Aura Rave is to compliment Dolph's ingenuity and then calmly teleport out, you qualify.]]
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: This is a man who never, ever, fights fair. If he can easily win by exploiting his broken MagicalEye, he will do so. He won't attack you from the front. He'll teleport in and stab you from behind.
* EnigmaticMinion: Do we even know what he wants?
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: Somewhat. He does not seem to have a motive for running around shanking people.
* HealingFactor
* HeroKiller: Of both heroes and villains in New Dawn. His complete count? [[spoiler: [[HeKnowsTooMuch Shouji Muzoku]], [[WeHardlyKnewYe Jack, Mary, Steven, Devin]], [[CurbStompBattle David Reaver, Carmon Calan and Jill Levenheim]], [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown Antoine Reyva]], and then the Phantom Claw Trainees.]]
* KickTheDog: He really did not ''need'' to make the suppression that painful. He just decided to do so anyway.
* MagicalEye: Maybe an Expy of the Sharingan, but even more ridiculous. It lets him cast very powerful spells without even making necessary preparations, drops the Mana requirements for such spells to almost nil, and gives him some really powerful abilities.
* MalevolentMaskedMan
* NoNonsenseNemesis: This guy does not fuck around. He barely even talks to people he's trying to kill.
