!!Mitochondria Eve
[[quoteright:214:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Eve_PE1_3930.JPG]]
[[caption-width-right:214:How the second Eve appears in ''VideoGame/ParasiteEve'']]

A mysterious, ancient evil that wants to reverse humanity's symbiotic relationship between the nucleus (banks of genetic information that dictate what cells grow where and when) and the mitochondria (organic power plants that fuel cellular activity). To this end, she takes over the body Kiyomi Nagashima, wife of mitochondrial expert Toshiaki Nagshima, and forces her to crash her car. Toshiaki cultures some of Kiyomi's liver cells, giving Eve a place to grow a body, and one of Kiyomi's kidneys is transplanted into fourteen year old girl Mariko Anzai, whom Eve mutates the womb of so it can give birth to the Ultimate Being. [[spoiler: After obtaining some of Toshiaki's sperm and implanting it into Mariko, Eve dissolves, unable to keep up with the energy output needed to sustain her own body.]]

A second, unrelated Mitochondrial Eve (possibly, see ContinuitySnarl) takes over the body of New York opera singer Melissa Pearce in the ''VideoGame/ParasiteEve'' game with the same goal as her predecessor of creating the Ultimate Being. Eve-2 dissolves a solo performance crowd at Central Park into raw genetic material and allies with [[spoiler:Melissa's former doctor, Hans Klamp]], to procure sperm for her Ultimate Being. Aya Brea fights her several times around New York, but is unable to seriously stop her plans.

[[spoiler:The original host of the second Eve is actually Maya Brea, sister of Aya Brea, who was in a fatal car crash and had her kidney donated to Melissa and her cornea to Aya.]]

* BarbieDollAnatomy: Several of Eve-2's later forms feature breasts that lack nipples, along with creative obfuscation of the pubic area. Strangely, artwork of Eve-2 in the official Parasite Eve artbook shows her having nipples, although the pubic area is still obscured.
* BigBad: Of the book and the first game.
* BishonenLine: Eve-2 hits this plateau in her evolution fairly quickly [[spoiler:and to an extent repeatedly]], and for a freakish mutation, she looks disturbingly FetishFuel-worthy. Her final form is a lot more humanoid and angelic than her previous forms.
* BlobMonster: When Eve-1 grows she is described as giant piles of bloodless flesh.
* BodyHorror: Eve-1 is this, while Eve-2 mostly inflicts it on others while riding the BishonenLine. Some aspects of Eve-2's body are still very horrific, however, such as her first form's 'tail' and freakishly large hands.
* BreakThemByTalking: Eve loved to direct this towards Aya, hoping to force Aya to see things her way and join her or simply give up.
* ContinuitySnarl: The only way the second Eve could be directly connected to the Eve-1 is if the Mariko in the book [[spoiler: is the same Mariko that's Aya and Maya's mother]]. And that does not work because the events of the book take place in 1985 and [[spoiler: Aya and Maya's mother died in the 70s]].
* EvilLaugh: Her dialogue suggests this despite the fact that there isn't any voice acting in the first game. In the cutscene where she smashes the piano she was playing, however, she does let out a rather high-pitched laugh after mutating into her first form. It's rather chilling.
* FanDisservice: See BarbieDollAnatomy above. [[spoiler:Especially Eve-2's gestating form from the museum encounter in Day 5.]]
* FemmeFatalons: Eve-2's hands.
* GreenEyes: When Eve-2 takes over Melissa's body, her eyes turn from brown to green. They stay this color from then on out.
* HannibalLecture:
** Eve-1 gives one of these in a rhetorical question form at a lecture on mitochondria and a more direct one at a different lecture.
** Eve-2 loves giving these during her WeCanRuleTogether speeches to Aya, rambling about how the nucleus is long overdue for a subversion of its smug superiority over the mitochondria.
* [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoist By Her Own Petard]]:
** Eve-1: Never thought that [[spoiler: male mitchondria]] could actually be a threat.
** Eve-2: Never expected that the evolution she so fervently sought would produce her own superior on the food chain.
* HornedHairdo: Eve-2.
* HumanoidAbomination
* LivingBodysuit: Kiyomi Nagashima, Mariko Anzai, and Melissa Pierce.
* MonsterIsAMommy
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: One of the forms she assumes when [[spoiler: Aya engages in the last battle with her on the collapsed Statue of Liberty]].
* PlayingWithFire: Her "aura" immolates people and animals (the ones that don't melt into goo or mutate).
* PowerFloats: Both Eve-1 and Eve-2 are capable of levitation.
* PuppeteerParasite: Hence the "Parasite" Eve.
* RecurringBoss: She's fought many times throughout the game, in various forms.
* ShapeshifterModeLock: Eve-2 makes several changes throughout the first game and these changes appear to be permanent, as she is never shown reverting back to previous forms.
* TookALevelInBadass: Eve-2 is way more powerful than Eve-1. She can set people on fire ''and'' mutate them, while Eve-1 was only able to set people ablaze.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Eve-1 is capable of this. Her favorite form is Kiyomi. Eve-2 sticks with a mutated Melissa, but does not show any sign of being able to shapeshift.
* TheVirus

!!The Ultimate Being

[[spoiler: Eve's "child", a human/mitochondria monster hybrid that has all of Eve's powers and complete control of its genetic code, that Eve wants to lead the mitochondria revolution. Eve succeeds in her goal of creating the Ultimate Being, but doesn't count on the male mitochondria from Toshiaki's sperm to rebel against Eve's mitochondria, causing the whole thing to self-destruct.]]

[[spoiler:The second Eve also wants to create an Ultimate Being and spends most of the game attempting to create and give birth to one. In the normal game (Day 6), Eve dies but the being is born anyway, since she implanted it into the mito-mass at Liberty Island. Is the final boss of the regular scenario.]]

* BaldOfEvil
* BiggerBad: Eve may be the main threat, but the Ultimate Being is the final one.
* EldritchAbomination: Dear god, there is barely anything human about it despite its appearance.
* FetusTerrible: The second Being's first form.
* FinalBoss
* SoapOperaRapidAgingSyndrome
* TouchOfDeath / OneHitKO
* UltimateEvil
* UltimateLifeForm
* WeaksauceWeakness: The first Ultimate Being's weakness is [[spoiler:her/his dad's normal vanilla mitochondria]].

!!Aya Brea
->'''Voiced by''': Maaya Sakamoto (JP) and Yvonne Strahovski (EN)

[[quoteright:140:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Aya_PE1_6293.JPG]]
[[caption-width-right:140:[[labelnote:Her cutscene model in ''Parasite Eve'']]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aya-psvg.png[[/labelnote]]]]
[[caption-width-right:270:[[labelnote:Her artwork for ''Parasite Eve 2'']]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Aya_PE2_7765.jpg[[/labelnote]]]]
[[caption-width-right:260:[[labelnote:Her artwork for ''The 3rd Birthday'']]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/likehappybirthdayandjunkaya_6189.png[[/labelnote]]]]

A 25-year-old police officer whose life changes when a date AtTheOperaTonight (tonight being Christmas Eve 1997) goes horribly wrong. As the only person to not not-so-spontaneously combust upon the awakening of Mitochondria Eve, she struggles to understand and rein in her own bizarre powers while racing to stop Eve from giving birth to the Ultimate Being and destroying and/or forcibly evolving humanity in the process. [[spoiler:She's immune to Eve because they share donor organs from her twin, Maya. More on that further down.]]

Aya returns in ''Parasite Eve 2'', set three years after the events of ''Parastie Eve'' as an ace operative of the FBI's anti-mitochondrial mutant task force, MIST [[FunWithAcronyms (Mitochondrion Investigation and Suppression Team)]], formed following reports of Eve's mutated animal minions spreading out from Manhattan. Aya's journey to destroy the newly-monikered "Neo-Mitochondrion Creatures" ([=NMCs=]) and put a seal on her own unpredictable powers leads her to Los Angeles. However, an investigation into an NMC outbreak near the ghost town of Dryfield, Nevada hits closer to home.

Aya is the star in ''The 3rd Birthday'' but, apart from her name, she remembers nothing about herself or her past. When the CTI (Counter Twisted Investigation team) found her, she was wearing a bloody wedding gown outside the St. Thomas Cathedral in Manhattan, either just before or just after her own wedding. After taking her into custody, the CTI realized her abilities allowed her to dive into a human's past consciousness. Understanding that this was humanity's only chance against the space and time-defying Twisted, the Overdive Investigation Unit was formed to develop a way to use Aya's powers against them.

[[spoiler:...Except this isn't Aya at all. It's Eve, from Parasite Eve 2, in Aya's body, the result of a failed EmergencyTransformation. As a result, she actually regains a mix of both her actual memories and Aya's, resulting in a ''huge'' TomatoSurprise.]]

* ActionGirl
* BareYourMidriff: Aya's default outfit in ''3rd'' is a purple vest about one size too small.
* BigDamnHeroes: At the very end. of ''3rd''.
* BizarreHumanBiology: Aya possesses [[spoiler: a more benign/passive form of the "evolved" strain of mitochondria serving as the the first game's BigBad, which are not only ''a self-aware HiveMind'' that can [[BodySnatcher hijack their "hosts"]] and act like TheVirus]], they possess actual ''superpowers'', which include [[PlayingWithFire spontaneous combustion]] and BodyHorror transformations!
* ButNotTooForeign: Half-Japanese, mostly to tie her to the events of the novel directly. [[spoiler: Specifically, her mother, Mariko, was the girl in the novel who gave birth to the original Ultimate Being.]]
* {{Chickification}}: Sort of in ''3rd''. [[spoiler: And justified, when we learn she's really Eve.]]
* ClothingDamage: Like you wouldn't believe in ''3rd''. While it can be quite interesting, the more skin Aya shows the more damage she takes.
* CursedWithAwesome: Aya's mitochrondrial powers lack the villainous insanity and BodyHorror that other people in this series go through--[[spoiler: she received the "special" mitochondria when she was still a child, and unlike Melissa, Aya's mitochondria evolved to the point where they are symbiotic with her body and work with her instead of taking outright control]]. However, they also keep her body younger than she really is, since a youthful host is advantageous.
-->'''Aya''': (looking in a bathroom mirror) ''Here's looking at you, kid, I look like I'm in my early 20s... It's nice, but there's a reason. It's what my mitochondria want. I never asked for this. A youthful host is advantageous. [[ShoutOut I saw a movie]] [[Film/{{Highlander}} about a medieval knight who lived into this century]], [[WhoWantsToLiveForever I don't want that]]... [[IJustWantToBeNormal I just want one, normal life]]...''
* [[spoiler:DeadAllAlong:]] A trait she shares with a lot of characters in ''The 3rd Birthday''.
* DeadpanSnarker: More so in ''2'' than in ''1'' and ''3rd'', mostly when you have her examine something several times. "Do I have to look in there again?" is her comment if you keep trying to make her look into a dirty toilet.
* [[spoiler: EyeRemember: Maya's cornea (which possessed Eve's mitochondrial power) was transplanted into Aya's right eye, and Aya's visions are actually Maya's last memories]].
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Her stock flavor of angst for the first couple of chapters, peaking in an {{I Am A Monster}}-flavored HeroicBSOD.
* ElementalPowers: Which she develops in''2''.
** [[PlayingWithFire Fire]]: [[FireBalls Pyrokinesis]], [[HandBlast Combustion]], [[StuffBlowingUp Inferno]]
** [[BlowYouAway Wind]]: [[PoisonousPerson Necrosis]], [[FullContactMagic Plasma]], [[ShockAndAwe Apobiosis]]
** [[HealThyself Water]]: Metabolism, [[HealingHands Healing]], LifeDrain
** [[StatusBuff Earth]]: Antibody, Energy Shot, [[DeflectorShields Energy Ball]]
* FairCop
* FairytaleWeddingDress / PimpedOutDress: Her wedding dress in ''The 3rd Birthday''.
** BloodSplatteredWeddingDress: When CTI found her.
* TheGunslinger
** HyperspaceArsenal: Said gun is always a pistol in cutscenes, but may range up to and including a rocket launcher during gameplay with no encumbrance penalty.
* TheHeroine
* ItWasWithYouAllAlong: Discovered at the end of ''1''.
-->[[spoiler: '''Aya''': "Maya. I was always waiting...waiting for you to come home with mom. And I've always been looking for the other "me". But you were always right there with me Maya...ALWAYS, all this time."]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Along with Eve's body to prevent the creation of the Twisted]] at the end of ''3rd''.
* LimitBreak: Liberation mode, her main power in ''3rd'', in which Aya's powers break free of their limitations, letting her [[GunsAkimbo dual-wield]], dance circles around enemies and fire very powerful energy blasts. Can come with a DangerousForbiddenTechnique (Inferno, which is CastFromHitPoints) if the player is inclined.
* LittleBlackDress: The out she wears during day 1 when she went to the opera.
* MagicKnight: Skilled with any firearm, and has a collection of powerful magic (Parasite Energies) to back her up.
* [[spoiler:MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds: She created the Twisted by sheer accident.]]
* MiniDressOfPower: In ''2''.
* MissingMom: Her mother died in a car crash along with Maya. Aya was raised by her father.
* NoSell / OnlyICanKillHer / TheImmune: Her immunity to Eve's powers makes her [[ItsUpToYou the only one]] that can fight her effectively.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Was 25 during the first game, 27 in the second game, 38 in 3rd, looks barely 21, leading to WhoWantsToLiveForever. This is explained in that, since her evolved mitochondria have opted to work with her rather than against her (which is the defining difference between Aya and the various monsters around her), they've decided that keeping their host healthy and young is more advantageous to them than allowing her to age.
* OutOfClothesExperience: When she goes into Liberation mode.
** BarbieDollAnatomy
* SaltAndPepper: Aya and Daniel.
* ShoutOut: One of her alternate costumes in ''3rd'' is Lightning from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII''. Lightning also has Aya as an alternate costume in ''VideoGame/Dissidia012FinalFantasy''.
* SmallGirlBigGun: She can equip large rifles and finds a [[{{BFG}} rocket launcher]] about 3/4 into the game. In the sequel one of her unlockable weapons is a portable railgun that sends her back a few feet whenever she fires it!
* {{Stripperific}}: In ''3rd'' although she always wears her default outfit in cutscenes, some of the other outfits that she can wear are quite revealing, and that's before taking damage.
** The developers {{Lampshade}} this with her maid costume-they point out she's wearing it "for fun".
* [[spoiler:TomatoInTheMirror: She isn't who she thinks she is]] in ''3rd''.
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: Mentioned if you check the bathroom mirror in her motel room in Dryfield. [[ChristmasCake This is also how you know why she doesn't look like an old crone at the ripe old age of 27.]]

!!Daniel "Bo" Dollis
[[quoteright:198:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pe-daniel_7310.jpg]]

Aya's partner and BlackBestFriend; combined, the manual refers to them as the "Father and Daughter Team" of the NYPD's 17th Precinct. His introduction is a DynamicEntry that sets the tone for his take-no-nonsense approach to the Eve case, along with his determination to thwart any mundane threat that sets its eyes on Aya or his son Ben.

* AlliterativeName
* AmicablyDivorced: Despite appearances, Daniel and Lorraine remain close. He takes her death as hard as any loving spouse would. It turns out that Lorraine was considering patching their family back together.
* AngryBlackMan
* BadassNormal
* BadassMustache
* BlackBestFriend
* DynamicEntry: The first of his several [[Awesome/ParasiteEve Crowning Moments of Awesome]].
* HeroicSacrifice: Leaps from a helicopter and burns up in Eve's wake, all to deliver some DepletedPhlebotinumShells to assist Aya in the battle. Subverted when he survives his wounds.
* LethalChef: According to Aya in the sequel, he is a terrible cook.
* MarriedToTheJob: The reason why Lorraine left him in the first place.
* OlderSidekick
* PapaWolf
* SharpDressedMan[=/=][[BadassInANiceSuit Dressed To Kill]]
* SinkOrSwimFatherhood: Lorraine divorced him a year before the game starts, leaving him sole custody of their son Ben.

!!Benjamin Dollis
[[quoteright:143:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pe-ben_8790.jpg]]

Daniel's son, in the custody of his ex-wife Lorraine due to his long hours on the force. Initially planned to reunite the family at Melissa Pearce's Central Park solo concert, but Eve's awakening changed all that. [[spoiler:Along with Lorraine, he was meant part of the mito-mass that became the Ultimate Being's uterus, although he survives.]] Likes dogs, and is quickly introduced to the K-9 unit's Sheeva, which goes about as well as you'd expect for a game reveling in its high levels of TransformationTrauma.

* BreakTheCutie
* MissingMom: Lorraine.
* TagAlongKid

!!Kenneth Baker
[[quoteright:140:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pe-baker_4873.jpg]]

Chief of the NYPD 17th. Joined the force at about the same time as Daniel, and still maintains casual terms with him despite their difference in rank. Takes care of Ben while Daniel and Aya are on the scene in Central Park, only to get himself injured protecting him from the mutated Sheeva.

* CommanderContrarian
* DaChief: Despite not having any {{Cowboy Cop}}s to his name, he's still pretty gruff - evident when Aya lets a little too much slip during a press conference on the Carnegie Hall fire investigation.
* DeskJockey
* LargeAndInCharge
* SharpDressedMan[=/=][[BadassInANiceSuit Dressed To Kill]]
* ShootTheDog: Is stuck doing this.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: His imperious ways rub Daniel raw. They used to be partners before Kenneth was promoted.

!!Kunihiko Maeda
->'''Voiced by''': Hiroaki Hirata (JP) and Joe J. Thomas (EN)
[[quoteright:246:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pe-maeda_4038.jpg]]

Japanese biologist and walking {{Infodump}} for the events of the novel, who hopped the first plane to New York when he heard of the fire at Carnegie Hall. After rescuing Aya following her clash with Eve at Central Park, he relates the tale of the original Eve's attempt to birth an Ultimate Being and discovers the reason behind Aya's immunity to the current Eve. Afterwards, his main role is [[StopHelpingMe dispensor of inventory space-wasting good luck charms]], including one literal ChekhovsGun.

Maeda returns in ''The 3rd Birthday'', once again assisting Aya with his research into the Twisted.

* CannotSpitItOut: [[spoiler: To Aya during the ending]].
* ChekhovsGun: Gives you a weak handgun late in the game. Combined with the bullets mentioned below, it becomes a lethal weapon against the final boss. Appears in the sequel as the [[InfinityMinusOneSword Mongoose]].
* DepletedPhlebotinumShells: [[spoiler: The Maeda Bullets]].
* GeniusDitz
* {{Infodump}}: for the Hideaki Sena novel.
* NonActionGuy

!!Torres Owens and Wayne Garcia

Caretakers of the 17th's weapons storage area. Torres is hell-bent on making sure guns are used responsibly, having sworn off using them since his daughter died in a mishap with a loaded one. This tends to make him clash loudly with apprentice Wayne, an adherent to the MoreDakka school of gun control. Both provide Aya with the facilities to modify weapons and armor to increase their bonus slots, and space to store unneeded items.

Wayne, not being allowed to handle the guns without supervision, takes to collecting gun trading cards instead. Feed his hobby [[spoiler:following Torres's death during the raid on the precinct]] and you'll eventually be rewarded with the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity Plus and/or]] [[InfinityMinusOneSword Minus One Toolkits]].

* ShoutOut: They return (sort of) as proprietors of the Lindblum Synthesis Shop in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'', and reprise their argument when you first walk in: Wayne believes the key to victory is superior weaponry, where Torres puts his faith in superior armor.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: Played rather seriously.

!!Warner, Nix, and Cathy

They're also on the force.

* [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Three Guys]]

!!Hans Klamp
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pe-klamp_7663.jpg]]

Anthropologist at the Museum of Natural History, who is mysteriously at work despite both the Christmas holiday and an evacuation of Manhattan following Eve's audience liquification event at Central Park. [[spoiler: Oversaw the operations that transplanted Maya Brea's organs into Aya and Melissa, supplied Melissa with enough immunosuppressants to let the mitochondria in Maya's kidney take her over as Eve, and [[YouFailBiologyForever removed the mitochondria from his sperm]] to make it prime material for fertilizing the Ultimate Being. Apparently has been pulling a LongCon and considered a variety of potential organ recipients for creating the UB, as Lorraine Dollis is listed on the same HLA list that he pilfered from St. Francis Hospital.]]

* BeardOfEvil
* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: Calls on Eve to "take him" when Aya arrives to place him under arrest. He combusts.
* DontYouDarePityMe: Aya rushes to his aid after Eve sets him aflame. Characteristically, the Doc sneers at her human weakness.
* EvilGenius
* {{Expy}}: Klamp bears striking similarities to Professor Hojo from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', which include creating monsters and assisting the BigBad [[ForScience in the name of science]].
* HereComesTheScience: Where Maeda was the {{Infodump}} for the novel, Klamp takes his {{Exposition Break}}s expounding on an understanding of genetics [[HollywoodScience as]] [[Franchise/MetalGear shoddy]] [[TheLastDaysOfFOXHOUND as]] HideoKojima's.
* {{Jerkass}}: Dr. Hans Klamp is a total snob to Aya and Daniel in the beginning of the game and dodges their questions while acting all high and mighty. Even when Daniel later on finds his ex-wife and son's name on Klamp's computer and threatens to kick his ass, Klamp coldly tells him and Aya to leave.
** He has his reasons for blowing them off: [[spoiler: he's actually helping Eve give birth to the Ultimate Being, which becomes the final boss of the game]]. Which really makes him a jerk, to put it lightly.
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:Up and asks for one, having completed his part of the plan]].
* MadScientist
* MisanthropeSupreme
* ANaziByAnyOtherName
* NonActionGuy

!!Maya Brea
[[quoteright:160:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pe-maya_6550.jpg]]

Is dead. Aya keeps having visions and flashbacks of her as she pursues Eve, though. [[spoiler: Is also the BonusBoss.]]

[[spoiler: Aya's visions are due to having received a transplant from Maya. Aya had a defect in her right eye since birth, and received Maya's cornea as a transplant. Which is how Aya will later in life acquire her mitochondrial powers]].

* AlwaysIdenticalTwins: The character models for Maya and young Aya are dangerously similar, if not recycled outright.
* DeathByOriginStory
* [[spoiler: TragicMonster]]: [[spoiler: Her body possessed the most evolutionary form of mitochondria, which led her to be host of the Original Eve]].
* [[spoiler: TrueFinalBoss]]: [[spoiler: It's Maya's body possessed by Eve's mitochondria]].
* VirtualGhost
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Debuted in ''Parasite Eve II'']]

!!Rupert Broderick

The new Daniel. Still [[BlackBestFriend black]], still [[BadassNormal badass]], and about the same aptitude at dealing with [=NMCs=] and twisted humans alike.

* BadassNormal: He's pretty much a OneSceneWonder. He saves Aya from an ambush early in the game and unloads a ton of lead into the first Stranger, but sadly, he's wounded and out of commission for most of the rest of the game.
* BaldOfAwesome
* BlackBestFriend: Unfortunately, despite his EstablishingCharacterMoment being a badass with a huge HandCannon, he's out of the picture for most of the game. He's probably a HeroOfAnotherStory.
* ItsPersonal: He lost his family during the N.Y. Blockade incident. Now he dedicates his life to exterminating neo-mitochondrion creatures.
* RevolversAreJustBetter: He wields the Mongoose at the start of the game, which he gives to you only if you're on the Sad Ending route.

!!Pierce Carradine

Somewhere between "The new Wayne" and "The new Maeda" falls MIST's resident computer whiz. Though he just plain DoesntLikeGuns, that's about the only hindrance to his assistance to Aya via HollywoodHacking or item delivery.

* DoesNotLikeGuns
* KilledOffForReal: Depending on the ending route.
* NonActionGuy: Pierce gets himself into trouble while trying to help Aya out. Whether he survives or not [[MultipleEndings depends on the player's actions.]] And [[GuideDangIt whether you have a damn clue how to take those actions.]]
* PlayfulHacker
* SunglassesAtNight

!!Eric "Hal" Baldwin

Aya's new boss. Far too impersonal to call "The new Baker". [[spoiler:More like "The new Klamp".]]

* DaChief Lite
* [[spoiler:TreacherousAdvisor: Is in on the Neo-Ark Project, and may have helped procure Aya's cellular samples to assist them in cloning this newest breed of [=NMCs=].]]

!!Jodie Bouquet

Runs MIST's BP shop ([[GlobalCurrency Bounty Points]], not British Petroleum). Depending on how well you play the game, this may be all you remember her for.

* ArmsDealer: She's your armory/item shop at the start.
* HairDecorations
* GenkiGirl
* [[ThoseTwoGuys That Other Girl]]

!!Gary Douglas
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pe2-gary_2113.jpg]]

The last living resident of Dryfield (excepting his dog, Flint, and the hordes of [=NMCs=] Aya's come to clean out). A Vietnam vet with a gun collection big enough to claim the title of "The new Wayne", he helps Aya resupply during the investigation despite being compensated in [[GlobalCurrency some newfangled RPG currency]] rather than cold hard cash. After Aya's car is totaled by a herd of [=NMCs=], he also volunteers his truck to get her and Kyle to an old nuclear shelter that may be the source of the infestation.

* ArmsDealer: During the latter half of the game.
* BigFriendlyDog: His dog Flint.
* CoolOldGuy
* CrazyPrepared: Was apparently ready for the ANMC menace, having singlehandedly booby-trapped the entire town with everything from bear traps to landmines.
* NiceHat
* RetiredBadass: He's a decorated Vietnam vet who lost a leg in a minefield.
** HandicappedBadass
* WallOfWeapons: the caretaker thereof.

!!Kyle Madigan
->'''Voiced by''': Kouichi Yamadera (JP) and Creator/JensenAckles (EN)
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pe2-kyle_5153.jpg]]

A so-called private detective Aya encounters in Dryfield, claiming to be looking into strange shipments going into a nearby nuclear shelter once owned by a doomsday cult. Since he's one of the few EscortMission escortees in the business who doesn't suck for some reason or another, Aya teams up with him to discover the shelter's connection to the new [=NMCs=]. [[spoiler:Is a DoubleAgent for what's left of the Neo-Ark group, hired to bring Aya so that she could open the pathway to a runaway test subject. In turn, he was planted in Neo-Ark by the U.S. government, to pinpoint their Ultimate Being analogue for destruction via [[KillSat orbital railgun]].]]

Kyle returns in ''The 3rd Birthday''. Aya keeps seeing visions of him while she battles the Twisted, but initially does not remember who he is.

* [[spoiler: DoubleAgent: Kyle Madigan is actually a government agent sent to infiltrate the Ark organization, which in turn sends him to gain Aya's trust and manipulate her.]]
* [[spoiler: TheMole]]
** [[spoiler: DoubleReverseQuadrupleAgent]]
* ATasteOfPower: When teaming up with Aya for combat sequences, usually wields a cool weapon from the next shopping tier or two up.
* ShootTheDog: Was going to kill [[spoiler: Eve but Aya stops him, as she saw that Eve was just a scared little girl who didn't want to be used as a power/control source anymore]].
* WeCannotGoOnWithoutYou: Game Over for Aya if Kyle loses all 100 of his non-healable HitPoints. (Thankfully, he's not as screwed as he looks during the first major battle of Disc 2.)

!!Number 9

As the main series page calls him, "[[NinjaPirateZombieRobot a Gunblade-slinging rooftop-hopping ape-like zombie cyborg supersoldier]]" who masterminds an NMC outbreak at the Akropolis shopping center and is apparently the last sentient resident of the Neo-Ark shelter - his colleagues having either become [=NMCs=] themselves in some [[NoTranshumanismAllowed half-assed transhuman orgy]] or been killed by said voluntary converts. [[spoiler:Hired Kyle, whether of his own will or at Baldwin's request, to escort Aya to Neo-Ark so she would eventually disable various barriers that his "queen" had erected around herself.]]

* {{BFS}}: Though his use of a [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Gunblade]] is more memorable, he DID pack a mean randomly-on-fire machete during his first showdown with Aya.
* DragonInChief: Number Nine is the closest we have to a main antagonist, but he's not actually in charge of the big plan, just following it out. Whoever orchestrated it is long gone, either killed or turned into an ANMC.
* EliteMook: Not all that evident, with anything resembling a BigBad proper already dead.
* LaughingMad
* OneHitKO: During the first fight with him, his flame sword attack is a guaranteed kill, moreso if he's backed Aya in a corner.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Two and a half out of four ain't bad.
* YouAreNumberSix: Though practically revelling in the inhumanity that this trope entails.

!!Eve
->'''Voiced by''': Rei Okamoto (JP) and Molly Quinn (EN)
[[quoteright:193:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pe2-maya_1815.jpg]]

Not the same the NietzscheWannabe of the last game, however - this new Eve is a MysteriousWaif [[spoiler:cloned from Aya herself]] and [[TheWoobie raised in isolation with the shittiest children's toys known to man]] - all to heighten her sense of fear and self-preservation as [[spoiler:the eventual living engine for Neo-Ark's not-quite-an-Ultimate-Being.]] At least her teddy bear's halfway normal. [[spoiler: She gets absorbed into the final boss, but Aya manages to save her. With Rupert's help, Aya adopts the girl as a sister. Eve also apparently lost most of her power, but overall she's quite well-adjusted and is going to school in the end]].

Eve returns in the ''The 3rd Birthday'' with an expanded role. Eve disappeared after the incident at Aya's wedding at St. Thomas Cathedral. All information on her is from Aya's personal testimony, as she doesn't appear in any records in government databases. After a particular disturbing flashback concerning her, Aya decides to use her Overdive ability to look in the past for the cause of Eve's disappearance, and hopefully learn how to save her.

[[spoiler: She is the true PlayerCharacter of ''The 3rd Birthday''. When the SWAT team attacked St. Thomas Cathedral, Aya and all of the other attendees to the wedding were gunned down. In a desperate attempt to save her, Eve dived into Aya's dying body, and quickly killed the soldiers. However, in the process, she destroyed Aya's lingering soul. Eve, in the shock and confusion from what she had just unconsciously done (and the identity crises of having bits of Aya's soul mix with her own), failed to return to her own body and fainted. When she awoke, she had completely lost her memories, and found herself in the care of Hyde Bohr, the head researcher for the CTI. Unknown to her, in the intense stress during the incident where she lost her memories, her already advanced cells made a huge evolutionary step, and her abandoned body decayed to create the sentient High Ones -- the natural predators to the Twisted.]]

* [[spoiler:ActionSurvivor: She was a young teenager in a woman's body who had to learn fighting from scratch -- you've gotta give her credit for her tenacity.]]
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: She was raised to be this way, amplified by being forced to wear a [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI slave crown]]-esque helmet.
* BodySurf
** [[spoiler:BodySnatcher: Unintentionally.]]
* [[spoiler:CloningBlues]]
** [[spoiler: ClonesArePeopleToo]]: Which leads Aya to [[spoiler: save the girl and adopt her]].
* CuteMute: She never speaks until late in the second game.
* [[spoiler: DeadAllAlong: Well, her ''body'' [[RunningGag anyway]]]], in ''3rd''.
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: Her prized possession is a teddy bear.
* [[spoiler: HappilyAdopted]]
* HealingFactor: Like her "sister" Aya.
* MysteriousWaif
* PoweredByAForsakenChild: She was created to be used as [[spoiler: a living power source for Neo Ark's Ultimate ANMC]].
* [[spoiler: TomatoInTheMirror: She isn't [[MindScrew who she thinks Aya thinks she is.]]]] Revealed at the end of ''The 3rd Birthday''.
* WeCannotGoOnWithoutYou: [[spoiler: There's one sequence where Aya must escort her out of a room that is slowly being filled with poison gas. Eve cannot defend herself at all, and if her HP hits 0, the game is over]].
* [[spoiler: WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Her "play room" was deliberately designed to frustrate her, and those loudspeakers in the walls that keep Aya from using her powers? They were meant for Eve.]]
** [[spoiler: If she hadn't tried to save Aya, the Twisted wouldn't have been created and Eve's own body wouldn't have decayed and evolved into the High Ones.]]
* YoungerThanTheyLook: She has the appearance of a 10 year old girl, but was presumably "grown" in a much shorter amount of time.

[[folder:Debuted in ''The 3rd Birthday'']]

!!Hyde Bohr
->'''Voiced by''': Takashi Taniguchi (JP) and James M. Connor (EN)

Chief researcher for the CTI and head of the Overdive Investigation Unit. A friendly mentor to Aya and the other people in his unit, he is devoted to finding a way to stop the Twisted.[[spoiler: Like EVERY character in this game, he's not quite what he seems, though. Hyde is actually one of the most powerful High Ones -- a race evolved from Eve's remains that is dedicated to the eradication of the Twisted at all costs. He gathered and sub-consciously controls the other High Ones in the group.]]

* [[spoiler: AdamAndEvePlot: Sort of... he wants to [[{{squick}} combine]] with Eve, who he considers to be the [[FreudWasRight Mother]] of the High Ones race and create an ultimate race.]]
* [[spoiler: BodySnatcher: As a High One, he stole the original Hyde's body in the first place. Also gained the ability to Overdive when Eve dived into him near the end of the game.]]
* [[spoiler: TheChessmaster: In his quest to go back to Time Zero]]
* [[spoiler: DeadAllAlong: Killed at "Time Zero", at St. Thomas Cathedral, where he was attending Aya's wedding.]]
* [[spoiler: GunsAkimbo: It's hard to notice in the midst of battle, but Hyde dual wields ''two M4s'' with ease.]]
* ManInWhite
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:Hyde Bohr's using Aya to kill High Ones to allow him to go back to time zero]].
* [[spoiler: PuppeteerParasite: Hyde as we know him, and Eve's other CTI teammates controlled by him.]]
* TeamDad
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Hyde takes advantage of the Twisted incidents to travel back to Time Zero, where he would merge with Eve and become the pioneer of a higher lifeform. Nevermind the people who died in said incident]].
** [[spoiler: A bit of [[FridgeBrilliance Fridge Brilliance]], the Twisted turn out to be this. Being the fragmented pieces of Aya's "soul" that were sent to the future due to Eve's Overdive, they abduct and kill people to make the Babels grow and merge into the Grand Babel, which would enable said pieces to travel back to Time Zero and undo those events by taking control of Aya for a little while.]]

!!Blank
->'''Voiced by''': Ryohei Kimura (JP) and Patrick Cavanaugh (EN)

The chief engineer of the CTI's Overdive Unit, originally hailing from South Korea. He joined the CTI at Hyde Bohr's request.

* HeelFaceTurn: At the age of 14, he was notorious for unleashing a Trojan horse that stole sensitive information. After being arrested, he ended up with a plea bargain, and began to work for the government in order to take down the communication networks of terrorists. That earned the ire of his fellow hackers, so he survived by wiping out his personal history and starting over from scratch.
* HollywoodHacking: His specialty.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By Kyle Madigan.]]
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: We never know his real name. He purposely intended it to start over from a blank slate after a life of being a malicious hacker.

!!Thelonious Cray
->'''Voiced by''': Hisao Egawa (JP) and Chris Jai Alex (EN)

Formerly a Special Ops combat specialist, he left his squad to join the CTI team. Soon after, his whole squad was annihilated in the ill-fated Operation Red Fog. Was outside of St. Thomas Cathedral at the time of SWAT raid. [[spoiler: He's another High One, created when Eve's body deteriorated at Time Zero.]]

* [[spoiler: DeadAllAlong: You get the idea.]]

!!Gabrielle Monsigny
->'''Voiced by''': Yuko Kaida (JP) and Melinda Hill (EN)

A special agent in the CTI's Overdive Investigation Unit. Her friendship with Aya is a sisterly bond. [[spoiler: She's also a High One, created when Eve's body deteriorated at Time Zero.]]

* CoolBigSis
* [[spoiler: DeadAllAlong: You get the idea.]]
* FriendlySniper
* RivalTurnedEvil: Subverted. [[spoiler:Gabrielle didn't '''want''' to attack Aya.]]

!!Hunter "Boss" Owen
->'''Voiced by''': Wataru Yokojima (JP) and Joe Smith (EN)

The head of CTI. Owen suspects Aya is a Twisted, so he is constantly hostile towards her.

* BadBoss: There isn't a good reason for treating the one woman whom your entire operation and plan to save the world on like crap and calling her "thing".
* {{Jerkass}}: A bit of an understatement. [[spoiler: He kills the whole CTI team and tries to get Aya killed in a battle against Twisted-Gabriel]].
