Sands of Destruction characters; some tropes will either apply to the [[Anime/SandsOfDestruction anime]], [[Manga/SandsOfDestruction manga]], or [[VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction video game]], so read at your own risk.


[[folder:Main Characters (playable in game, present in all adaptations)]]
!!Kyrie Illunis
[[caption-width-right:250:''"It's probably my fault..."'']]
->Voiced by: Creator/MamoruMiyano ''(Japanese)'', Creator/EvanWood ''(English game)'', Creator/ToddHaberkorn ''(English anime)''

The main character of Sands of Destruction. Kyrie believes he is a normal human being and lives life in an isolated area where both humans and Ferals are treated equally. However, there is more than meets the eye as he has the power to destroy the world. Because of this he is forced to leave his hometown and journey with Morte, who wants to use him to destroy the world.

* ActionSurvivor: In the anime.
* AdaptationalWimp: No version of Kyrie particularly ''likes'' to fight, but his anime self is pathetically incompetent in terms of even staying out of the way.
* AdaptationDyeJob: In both the game and anime he's dirty blond, but the manga covers can't seem to decide if his hair is a bright yellow-blond or a light brown nearly the same color as Morte's.
* AfraidOfTheirOwnStrength: In the game and manga. {{Justified}} due to some pretty severe PowerIncontinence.
* AllLovingHero: Best exemplified by a Life Skill he gains late in the game, ''Porta Clausa'', which negates all damage for three turns. Not all damage to your party; '''all damage''', including to enemies. Kyrie would really rather not hurt anyone if he can. All versions of him are kind and generous to everyone, though the game makes it clear he's especially fond of Morte.
* AllMenArePerverts: Subverted in the anime: one episode, he had the chance to look up Morteís skirt because it had a huge tear in it and was getting bigger with every movement she made. Instead, he spent the entire episode trying to sew it back together instead of commenting on the rip. [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments It does not go well...]]
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: The game makes it clear that, while he doesn't ''want'' to hurt ''anyone'', Morte is his first priority.
* AmazonChaser: In the game, his infatuation with Morte starts from a love of her dynamic and passionate beliefs. Her beliefs just happen to be "let's kill everything". [[spoiler:Of course, as the Destruct, it's a little hardwired into him to need to end the world, even if he doesn't realize it at first.]]
* AntiAntiChrist: This NiceGuy is TheChosenOne for bringing about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. Yeah, he doesn't think that's a good idea either.
* ApologizesALot: All versions of him have him apologizing whether it's to his friends or enemies. However, in the video game, it becomes a quip that he apologizes even if it isn't his fault.
-->'''Agan''': Apologizing to your own [[spoiler: murderer]]. That's a first.
* TheAtoner: In the manga, [[spoiler:his powers went out of control and he ended up killing everyone in a village as a result. He leaves Morte in order to find a way to control his powers.]]
* BadPowersGoodPeople: Whose bright idea was it to give this sweet, friendly NiceGuy the power to completely obliterate everything around him?
* BewareTheNiceOnes ''and'' IFeelAngry: No matter how the Ferals treat him or what they do, Kyrie generally has the inability to get angry. However, this is subverted in the manga [[spoiler: as when he finally does snap at Morte, it shocks everyone.]]
* {{Bishounen}}: More in the video game as in the anime, he's in the {{moe}} category.
* BlessedWithSuck: The power to destroy the world? No, Kyrie would rather just bake cakes; controlling all that power (or worse, ''not'' controlling it) causes problems.
* BoyMeetsGirl: How he meets Morte.
* BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler:In the manga and video game.]]
* BroodingBoyGentleGirl: GenderFlipped with Morte in the anime: she's moody and pessimistic, whereas he's kind and patient, even when she tries to push him away or responds tersely to his conversation.
* TheButcher: His starting nickname in the game. Of course, the only way it's fitting at all is if you look at his kitchen skills - but even then, most of his cooking is vegetarian.
* CatGirl: When he needs a disguise, he will disguise himself as a cat boy. An adorable one you might add.
* ChefOfIron: A combination of type two and three in the game: he uses cooking knives as his primary weapon and his special moves are all based on food.
* TheChick: At his worst, he becomes this instead of TheHero. Then again, in the video game, he's always the one that suggests the least violent method of action similar to TheChick role.
* TheChosenOne: Chosen to end the world, that is. [[ItSucksToBeTheChosenOne He is not happy about it]].
* CloudCuckooLander: Seems to be this in the game and anime. Subverted in the manga.
* CombatMedic: In the game, he's got the widest variety of healing spells but is not terrible with his knives, either.
* TheCutie
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Inverted in the anime. Played straight in the manga and video game.
* CutenessProximity: In the manga, he squeals at seeing Toppi for the first time. In the video game, he has a similar experience as he continues to call Toppi a teddy bear every now and then. Subverted in the anime where he's freaked out over Toppi's appearance.
* DishingOutDirt: His Destruct powers allow him to turn everything around himself to sand.
* DistressBall: Anime counterpart tends to get himself in situations that could get him killed.
* DistressedDude: No matter if itís the anime, manga or video game, Kyrie will always get captured. UpToEleven in the anime where every other episode he gets captured and has to wait for his teammates to think of a plan to escape the Ferals.
* TheDitz: In the anime. He is rather...clumsy...
* DoomedHometown: In the manga and the video game. It doesnít say what his hometown is in the anime, though, [[spoiler:but judging from the memory lane episode, it was obvious that he was searching for work because something happened to it.]]
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:In the video game, after failing to control his powers for a second time, he asks Naja to kill him.]]
* DudeLooksLikeALady: In the manga, one can easily mistake Kyrie for a woman. Blame the artist for that.
* EleventhHourSuperpower: [[spoiler:In all versions, he eventually gets a large bump in power right at the end. In the anime, he remembers his identity and thus regains his ability to turn anything he wants into sand. In the game, he gets a powered-up fight mode about halfway through the game, but doesn't reveal that he's also now immune to the Destruct Code's order to destroy the world until just before the final fight. In the manga, he suddenly realizes his humanity grants him the powers of a Creator as well as a Destroyer in the middle of the final battle.]]
* FantasticNuke: His powers are basically nuclear (in the manga, Naja even waxes scientific on the conversion of atoms), though there is no fallout and the area is immediately safe to walk in - assuming he doesn't [[PowerIncontinence go off again]]. In a twist, the focus is not on the mushroom cloud, but rather on the [[LightIsNotGood flash of light]] which precedes the cloud but is normally unmentioned in fiction.
* FashionableAsymmetry: Only wears a glove on his left hand.
* FarmBoy: Worked in a restaurant in a very small village until the plot happened.
* FriendToAllChildren: As part of the standard NiceGuy package. In the anime, he even teaches a group of orphans how to bake a cake for their caretaker's birthday.
* GenderBlenderName: While Kyrie is considered masculine in the original Greek, in modern English it's a unisex name.
* GoGoEnslavement:
** In one episode in the anime where he, Morte and Toppi were captured, he was the only one who had an outfit change when he was working in the kitchen.
** In the game, he was also perfectly willing to accept the Beastmen as humanity's rightful rulers. This says as much about his personality as it says about the fact that Ursa Rex was a kind and benevolent ruler to the humans under his command.
* GoodIsNotDumb: In the game, Rhi'a tells him a MotivationalLie. He later admits he disbelieved her, but didn't say anything because it wouldn't be nice to doubt her PsychicPowers. Taupy comments he must be [[SmarterThanYouLook smarter than he looks]].
* GoodIsNotSoft: Kyrie is normally content to let anyone who wants to walk all over him. He's quiet and meek and would really rather not fight. However, if you [[BewareTheNiceOnes push him too far]], he will put up quite an epic fight. [[spoiler:Even if you're his mom and the Creator of the world, that does '''not''' give you a free pass to try to ''acta est fabula'' him into destroying the world.]]
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: For someone who has the power to end the world, Kyrie sure is a NiceGuy.
* TheHeart: Always wants to talk things out instead of using violence. In the manga, [[spoiler:when he leaves the group because of an argument with Morte, the rest of the group soon splits up as well.]]
* TheHero: A cowardly one.
* HeroesWantRedheads: Possibly, depending on if you'd count Morte's chestnut hair as red (which likely depends on [[AdaptationDyeJob which adaptation]] and [[OffModel which piece of art]] you're looking at).
* HeterosexualLifePartners: In all versions, he eventually has this relationship with Taupy.
* HiddenDepths: All versions in all different ways.
** His [[ThePollyanna cheerful self]] in the anime [[spoiler: hides the fact that he is the Destruct Code that can destroy the world and his happy persona was created to hide the fact that he was indeed a dangerous weapon.]]
** His manga counterpart is similar to the anime only [[StepfordSmiler he's not all smiles.]] [[spoiler: On the inside, [[TheAtoner he feels really guilty]] for [[DoomedHometown killing everyone close to him]] all because he couldn't control his powers and wishes to do so to prevent any more victims.]]
** His video game counterpart is a combination of the two and while he really is a happy person, [[spoiler: the idea of destroying the world does get to him eventually and then when he kills more people because of his powers, [[DespairEventHorizon he falls into a state of despair]] and [[DeathSeeker asks Naja to kill him.]]]]
* IAmAMonster: In the game and manga, his lack of control over his powers makes him extremely dangerous even to his friends. This causes him no small amount of angst.
* IAmNotAGun: [[spoiler:In the game, the Destruct is a creation of the will of the world to be brought to its natural end. Kyrie is ''not'' pleased to learn his identity is a lie.]]
* IAmWho: In the game, Kyrie was raised without any knowledge of his identity as the Destruct - or even that such a thing might ''exist''. Naturally, when his powers activate, it freaks him out monumentally and it takes him a while to come to terms with what he really is and is capable of.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: He complains about this in the anime but isnít taken seriously (since he has control over his power) but played straight in the manga and video game.
* ImTakingHerHomeWithMe: Kyrie does this to Toppi in the manga because he insists that Toppi is a teddy bear. Toppi is not amused.
* InnocentBlueEyes: In all versions, he's an extremely kind NiceGuy with dark blue eyes.
* InSeriesNickname: Taupy refers to him as "Kid".
* InTouchWithHisFeminineSide: A genuine NiceGuy, because WomenAreWiser? Check. SupremeChef, because FeminineWomenCanCook? Check. Vulnerable to CutenessProximity, because GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals? Check. [[AlwaysMale In possession of a Y chromosome]]? Also check.
* ItsAllMyFault: One of his quips in the game is, "It's probably my fault..." It activates on occasion when he takes damage.
* UsefulNotes/JapanesePronouns: Always uses ''boku'' to emphasize how gentle he is. When speaking to others, he switches between ''anata'' and ''kimi'', often in the same conversation.
* KindHeartedCatLover: Stated in the video game that he adores cats. This also explains why he wears the cat ears in the anime.
* KnifeNut: In the video games.
* LethalChef: In the video game as this is one of his many attacks against enemies.
* LightEmUp: His powers produce a blinding flash of light as they [[DishingOutDirt turn things to sand]].
* LightIsNotGood: Played with. While Kyrie himself is absolutely a NiceGuy, [[BadPowersGoodPeople his powers destroy everything]] and he believes they make him a danger to everyone.
* LivingMacGuffin: Kyrie is capable of massive damage output, but doesn't know how to control it. Morte wants to figure out a way to use this power and doesn't particularly care too much if he's a person or just a random orb.
* LovableCoward: He grows out of this in the manga and video game.
* LoveMartyr: The reason he stays with Morte. This is horribly subverted in the manga as he [[spoiler:snaps at her for blowing up an entire town and leaves the World Destruction Committee as a result.]]
* MagicalEye: [[spoiler:His left eye is where the Destruct Code is actually hidden; it glows when he Awakens in the anime.]]
* MagneticHero: In the game, most every character joins the Front because they find Kyrie fascinating for one reason or another. [[spoiler:When he dies, the team nearly splits up because their common glue is gone.]]
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: With Morte.
* MeaningfulName: Kyrie in Greek is lord (usually used [[ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming in reference to Jesus]]). His full name is likely a misspelling of a well-known prayer, ''[[ Kyrie eleison]]'', meaning "Lord, have mercy!" Alternatively, Illunis may be meant to sound like "illusion", as in the illusion he initially has that he's just an ordinary boy.
* TheMedic: While everyone has a healing move, all of his life skills are ''all'' healing which range from healing the entire party's HP, status ailments and regen.
* MessianicArchetype: All versions to some extent, but ''especially'' the game.
* MoralityChainBeyondTheGrave: [[spoiler:For a time in the middle of the game. He gets better.]]
* MoralityPet: Mainly to Morte but applies to the whole group. [[spoiler: In the manga, after he gets into a fight with Morte, the group splits up.]]
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: In the video game, he's given the name "Destruct" when he "joins" the World Destruction Committee. Naturally, whenever someone sees Kyrie, they're convinced that his title doesn't match him at all.
* NiceGuy
* NonActionGuy: In the anime [[spoiler: until the last episode.]]
* NotQuiteHuman: Kyrie looks like a normal seventeen-year-old boy. How he's not human varies between adaptations:
** In the game, he was [[ArtificialHuman a soulless being created by the Creator of the world]] for the [[TheChosenOne specific purpose of destroying the world when the time came]]. [[spoiler:The love shown to him by Morte, his friends, the villagers he grew up with, and even the Crimson Sun in the guise of his Uncle Agni allowed him to develop emotions, free will, and a soul, rendering him fully human but with extreme power.]]
** In the anime, [[spoiler:he's an ageless being who has been alive since the creation of the world.]]
** In the manga, he is one of two angels destined to destroy the world. They incarnate into human forms once every thousand years in order to fulfill their mission, but it seems this time he's forgotten his duty and learned to live as a very normal human. [[spoiler:That's because a thousand years ago, he fell in love with Morte and grew a human spirit so he could properly feel emotions, so he actually ''is'' human, even if he's still the Destruct, too.]]
* NotSoBadassLongcoat: Very much so in the anime, where he spends his time running and hiding from fights. Still a little bit in the manga and video game, as he's such a NiceGuy as opposed to your usual personality. However, it should be noted that his "coat" is in fact a long tunic shirt that can flap around; his actual jacket is only waist-length.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: [[spoiler:In the manga he knows heís a dangerous person and tries to play it off that he isnít. Too bad heís in a series where every character is very observant.]]
* OneManArmy: [[spoiler:In the anime, he single handedly took out his enemies before trying to engulf the world in sand. Thank god Morte stopped him.]]
* ParentalAbandonment: His uncle raised him because his parents died when he was young, but alas, poor Uncle Agni didn't make it past the first act of the game. [[spoiler:Actually, "Agni" was just fine, and his mom is still very much alive and the Creator of the world. It's unknown who or what his father was, his current whereabouts, or even if he existed in the first place or if the Creator simply gave birth to him because she felt like it, no father needed.]]
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Standing too close to Kyrie when his powers go off is hazardous to your health.
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: With Morte, though [[MasculineGirlFeminineBoy their expected personalities are flipped]].
* PoisonousPerson
* ThePollyanna: In the anime. Not so much in the manga and video game.
* PowerDyesYourHair: [[spoiler:When he Awakens as the Destruct, his hair turns flaming red.]]
* PowerMakesYourHairGrow: In the game only, [[spoiler:Awakening causes his hair to grow a couple of inches; not a great lot, but noticeable.]] Averted in the anime, where it's just a PaletteSwap of his usual blond.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Invokes this in the anime and video game but is horribly subverted in the manga.
* PowerStrainBlackout: In the game and manga, he faints after his Destruct powers activate and has a bit of amnesia for the event as well (though whether this is a side-effect of power overload or a simple psychological case of denial is left to the viewer to decide). [[spoiler:Averted in the final episode of the anime, where he's got more control and thus only seems a little bit tired after nearly destroying the world.]]
* RecruitmentByRescue:
** In the game, Morte breaks him out of a feral prison after hearing he accidentally turned a whole village to sand.
** In the anime, Morte accidentally exposes him as a human posing as a feral and, while she wasn't ''intending'' to rescue him, does end up dragging him out of the restaurant.
** In the manga, Morte and Taupy rescue him from Rajiv as he's being taken for accidentally destroying a village.
* ReluctantWarrior: In the game, he'd much rather talk than be forced to fight, but winds up killing quite a few beastlords and countless random mooks.
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: Or rather savvy guy, crazy girl.
* SelfDestructMechanism: He is one for the world.
* SelfMadeOrphan: Thanks to his PowerIncontinence, his ParentalSubstitute and the only family he had left are killed at the start of the game. [[spoiler:Later, it turns out his uncle is actually okay, but then he has to kill his mom to stop her from trying to force him to destroy the world.]]
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Sensitive Guy to Taupy's Manly Man.
* ShounenHair: Very messy and sticks up in random ways. [[spoiler:In the game, Awakened Kyrie has not only flaming red hair, but it's a tad longer and more windswept, too.]]
* ShrinkingViolet: In the anime.
* TheSoCalledCoward: In the anime, while he runs away most of the time [[spoiler: he is very capable of holding a human's attack on a beast man temporarily. Too bad this doesn't stick.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: One of the first Japanese trailers romanized his name as ''Kylie'', but most fans take this as an example of JapaneseRanguage at work. The Funimation dub of the anime changed his last name to ''Illnis'', which makes him sound like an IllBoy instead of a WideEyedIdealist (which some may claim [[SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids could fall under a type of mental illness]], given the state of racial affairs in his world).
* SphereOfDestruction: His powers turn everything around him to sand (with the exception of air, apparently). But since the ground in the world is already mostly sand, it largely appears to be a flat disc of destruction at surface level.
* StayInTheKitchen: Not used by him against females but some beastmen actually tell him that he's better off in the kitchen. This is mainly used to insult Kyrie being a human but since [[TheChick he is physically the weakest of the group]] and [[DistressedDude needing constant saving]], it fits him well. [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Naturally, he takes this comment in stride.]]
* StepfordSmiler: [[spoiler:In the manga, after killing an entire village with his powers, he is forced to put on a smile, while in the video game, the longer it takes to control his power, the sadder he gets, so he ends up being Type A. This is also true in the video game as time goes on but subverted in the anime.]]
* SupremeChef: In the anime he is often the one that cooks for the group, and even impresses the prisoners in the jail where the Committee was being held with his skill. In the game, his special moves are all based around cooking. Even his knife is considered a cooking utensil for battle.
* TeamChef: See above.
* TeamMom: He tends to try and be the peacemaker of the group, and is fairly domestic.
* TookALevelInBadass: In the video game and manga. [[spoiler:And at the end of the anime, though it's less taking the level and more regaining it.]]
* UnlikelyHero: He's not the strongest or most skilled fighter out there, he's kinda meek and mousy, and on top of that, he's got severe PowerIncontinence for some pretty nasty world-destroying abilities. ''This guy'' is gonna be our hero? Yup.
* UselessProtagonist: Played straight with the anime [[spoiler: until the last episode.]] Played with in the manga. Averted in the video game.
* WeakButSkilled: In the manga. Somewhat in the game as well, as his Flurry attacks don't do a lot of damage but he's capable of chaining them and his accuracy is a bit better than others.
* WideEyedIdealist:
** Although in the anime he starts out fairly world-weary, their journey across the world changes this.
** Played straight in the video game where he thinks that everyone has a chance to get along from the start but it slowly dies away as the game goes on.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Played with as he does have the power to destroy it. [[spoiler: Then again, in the anime when he was at the very end, he did become the very thing that the Salvation Committee tried to prevent.]]
* WrongGenreSavvy: In the video game, heís the only person that believes that humans and Ferals can live together. Boy is he wrong.

!!Morte Ashera
[[caption-width-right:249:''"There's '''more''' than enough destruction to go around!"'']]
->Voiced by: Creator/MaayaSakamoto ''(Japanese)'', Creator/DeborahEliazer ''(English game)'', Creator/LuciChristian ''(English anime)''

A sixteen year old girl with a troubled past and wants to destroy the world because of it. She was originally the only member of the World Destruction Committee (anime wise) until she encountered Kyrie and found out he had the power to destroy the world. With him by her side, she sets her sight of destroying the discrimination in the world.

* ActionGirl: In the anime. More of a DarkActionGirl in the manga and video games.
* ActionGirlfriend: To Kyrie in a sense. Officially becomes one about halfway through the game, though remains unofficial in other adaptations.
* AdaptationalCurves: While Morte is never flat-chested and is acknowledged by other characters as beautiful, the manga seems to double her bra size in comparison to the game and anime. The anime ''may'' have slightly filled out her figure as well, but it's much less drastic of a change.
* AdaptationDyeJob: Her skirt is red instead of pink in the anime, and her eye color changes between blue and green. Her hair is sometimes red and sometimes brown, but this changes [[OffModel even between pictures from one adaptation]].
* AffectionateNickname: Agan calls her "Mort" in the game, a holdover from when they grew up together. The translation of the manga keeps this, as their relationship is the same, though the original Japanese had him just calling her モルテ[[note]]Morte[[/note]].
* AxeCrazy: In the manga and video game. Subverted in the anime.
* BadassInDistress:
** In the anime where she wouldnít tell the Ferals where Kyrie and the Destruct Code were despite being beaten (almost to death).
** In the game, [[spoiler:she briefly ends up brainwashed by Serpens Rex, then is cursed by her and nearly dies]].
** In the manga, she's taken captive by [[spoiler:Lacertus and Aquila Rex, who have betrayed her trust in the World Destruction Committee]]. [[DefiantCaptive She doesn't stay distressed for long]]. [[spoiler:Then she has a realization so horrible that she momentarily forgets how to fight, and winds up in ''serious'' danger because of it.]]
%%* BadassLongcoat: Sans sleeves.
* BeleagueredChildhoodFriend: Agan treats her as one when they first meet in the game, wondering how the girl he grew up with who used to be a member of the [[LaResistance Golden Lions]] with him could have gone so far as to join the World Annihilation Front.
* BerserkButton: In the video game, hurting Agan is ill advised as [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Rajiv]] learns the hard way. [[spoiler: Morte kills him for beating up Agan and threatening a FateWorseThanDeath, which could have literally meant anything by the way [[DoesThisRemindYouofAnything Agan was tied up.]]]]
* {{BFS}}: Her weapon of choice is a double-ended scimitar that's nearly as tall as she is.
* BigEater: In the manga, she spreads a banquet table large enough to feed the entire Committee, but the only chair there is hers. She doesn't get an opportunity to eat much of it, though, so she may only have had so much food precisely so she could let it go to waste.
* BookDumb: In the game, she claims she hates books because they're boring and the PurpleProse is too complicated; one surmises she would not do well in an academic environment, despite the fact that she's clearly of at least average intelligence (if also of below-average sanity).
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler: In the video game, by Serpens Rex. She gets better.]]
* BreakTheCutie: In the anime. More of a BreakTheHaughty in the manga.
* BrokenBird: In the anime. Subverted in the video game.
* BroodingBoyGentleGirl: GenderFlipped with Kyrie in the anime: she's moody and pessimistic, whereas he's kind and patient, even when she tries to push him away or responds tersely to his conversation.
* ChildhoodFriend: To Agan in the game and manga. While they're very close (hurting Agan [[BerserkButton is a good way to insure a painful death for yourself]]), it's obvious they're LikeBrotherAndSister.
* CombatStilettos: They're more heels than actual stilettos, but her boots are definitely ''not'' practical for combat.
* CreepyCoolCrosses: Has an upside-down cross motif on her skirt and wears a gold cross necklace, though the later is rarely visible due to being small and hidden behind a rather large bow. Her coat also has a large white cross on the tail.
* CrutchCharacter: In the video game, she starts out at a higher level than Kyrie and is your primary damage dealer after Taupy. Halfway through the game, you probably will rely on Flurry attacks more, and since hers can only do 7 hits in total, she arguably becomes the least useful character in combat.
* CuteAndPsycho: In the video game and manga.
* DancinInTheRuins: On the rare occasions that she actually does property damage, she seems to quite enjoy herself.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt
* DefiantCaptive: When she's taken prisoner in the manga, she insults her captors and then makes herself at home on their ship, eating and drinking a huge spread and insisting they cater to her whims. She gets away with it [[spoiler:because the Archangel Vreveil recognizes her as the princess who is the counterpoint to him and Kyrie]].
* DefrostingIceQueen: In the anime where she opens up to Kyrie and Toppi. In the video game, it takes her longer to open up to the group. Subverted in the manga.
* {{Determinator}}: Once she gets an idea in her head - whether that's world destruction, [[spoiler:resurrecting Kyrie]], or [[spoiler:remaking the entire world into a better place]] - there's absolutely no stopping her.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: Sure, Kyrie may be the main character, but without Morte, the plot is going ''nowhere''.[[note]]Seriously. Without her, the story would go something like, "Kyrie [[PowerIncontinence accidentally wiped out his village]], so he got thrown in jail. He couldn't do anything about it on his own, so his powers activated again and again until the world was destroyed. EverybodysDeadDave. The end."[[/note]] If you want to think of it in terms of [[IncendiaryExponent fire]], Kyrie may be the spark that starts the plot, but Morte is the kerosene-soaked log that keeps it going.
* TheDreaded: In the game, she accidentally scares a pair of guards away from Kyrie's jail cell just by walking up behind them; as soon as they realize who she is, they flee. No one seems to recognize or react to her later in the game, however.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: In the game. She complains that [[TheyDontMakeThemLikeTheyUsedTo they don't make sand skiffs like they used to]]; you redline them once or twice and the darn thing just overheats and dies on you. Poor Kyrie could barely keep up. When she flippantly tells Agan that her ship "is wrecked" and they need to use his, he's immediately sure that ''she'' wrecked it; it didn't just happen by accident.
* EvilRedhead: At the start of the game and manga, where she's more psychotic. [[LoveRedeems Being around Kyrie eventually mellows her]].
* FantasticRacism: In the anime, she hates beastmen (with perhaps the exception of Taupy) and doesn't like when it's shown that they can and do get along perfectly well with humans. In the game, she doesn't seem to think anything more or less of them.
* FashionableAsymmetry: Her gloves are slightly different on each hand.
* FieryRedhead: Possibly a redhead; definitely a fiery temper.
* FingerlessGloves
* FistPump: Her VictoryPose in the game.
* FlatCharacter: In the video game where her actions arenít explained. Lampshaded when [[spoiler:she complains nothing happens to her in the Depths of Memory]]. This is subverted in the anime [[spoiler: because she's the first one to be affected by the Depths of Memories and is the only character that wanted to remain there because she would rather live in a time of happiness instead of knowing the future.]]
* FormFittingWardrobe: Most large coats ''hide'' the wearer's figure rather than being neatly tucked in beneath the breasts. Becomes even more noticeable in the manga, where her shirt even dips in between her breasts to avoid the uniboob effect, and her skirt occasionally clings to her legs so much that it looks like a pair of shorts instead.
* FriendlessBackground:
** In the manga, Agan says she had no companions growing up, and her only support was a story about the end of the world. However, [[UnreliableExpositor not ten seconds before saying that]], he called himself her ChildhoodFriend, and it's clear they know each other well and care about each other at least to some extent.
** Somewhat implied in the anime, as [[spoiler:after her family dies]] she's all alone and has rather blunted social skills.
* GenderBlenderName: While [[WhoNamesTheirKidDude most parents]] wouldn't give a name meaning "death" to a child of ''either'' gender, TheGrimReaper and other personifications of death are normally male. However, this may be a case of pop culture overshadowing language, as in Latin and its derivatives, ''morte'' was a female grammatical gendered word.
* GenkiGirl: In the game, she's extremely excitable and doesn't do anything by half. She's still pretty excitable in the manga, though not to the same extent. Averted by the anime, where she's more serious.
* GirlWithPsychoWeapon: She often brandishes that big sword in a menacing manner (as if there were any way to hold a sword as large as a person and ''not'' be menacing about it).
* GirlyBruiser: She'll happily bomb you six ways to Sunday before squeeing over a sparkly dress. The game even has a ChainOfDeals in which a set of feral sisters recognize that the human girl actually has some fashion sense.
* GreenEyes: Certainly has the temperament expected of it.
* HairTriggerTemper: In all versions. Played for laughs in the anime; in the video game, it's played for laughs most of the time. However, in the manga, it gets played for drama as [[spoiler: by snapping at Kyrie of all people, this prompts him to leave the group with Toppi and Naja following him.]]
* HeelRealization: In the manga, Vreveil explains that she is [[spoiler:the Planner, Princess of Guidance for the creation of the new world]]. This also means that she's responsible for [[spoiler:all the racism and the terrible state of the world, as she must have wished for it to be that way]]. Realizing this nearly causes a HeroicBSOD. Moments later, she also realizes that she pushed away the one person who could really help her.
* HimeCut: A messy, choppy version. In most adaptations, it's simply a common hairstyle for a heroine, but it becomes significant in the manga. [[spoiler:There she's actually the Princess of Guidance, a celestial being responsible for shaping the new world.]]
* IAmWho: In the manga, she's forgotten that she's [[spoiler:the Planner]]. She also doesn't know such a person could exist, but quickly takes it in stride - then nearly has a HeroicBSOD a few moments later when she realizes that means [[spoiler:the state of the world is ''all her fault'', as she didn't plan it well: she wished for a world with talking animals, but forgot to also wish that they would be friends with humans.]]
* IcyBlueEyes: In the game, which is somewhat unusual as her personality is most fiery in that incarnation. However, her one Blood Skill that isn't [[MadBomber a bomb]] is [[AnIcePerson Blizzard]].
* InformedAttractiveness: All adaptations have her appearance commented on at least once, and it's always positive. In the game, [[VainSorceress Serpens Rex]] attacks the party specifically because she thinks Morte is too pretty [[FantasticRacism for a human]].
* InLoveWithYourCarnage: In the game, she fangirls a bit when first meeting Kyrie because she heard he turned an entire village to sand. When she learns he can't do it on command and doesn't actually ''want'' to ever do it again, she's disappointed and vows to show him how terrible the world is so he'll want to destroy it. Her reaction in the manga is similar. Averted in the anime, where Kyrie doesn't display any powers at the start and is just sorta hanging around because he can't go back to his job. [[spoiler:When he does remember his powers and activates them, it frightens her and she begs him to stop before he actually destroys the world.]]
* InsanityImmunity: She's unapologetically a little off. The game later makes this her way of avoiding [[spoiler:Noctua Rex's spell: she doesn't have any regrets, so she's immune to being trapped in them]].
* InsistentTerminology: Morte is ''sixteen'', '''not''' seventeen! Wanted posters listing her as a year older is sort of a sore point for her.
* ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne: When discussing the various things the Ferals call her, she claims she dislikes the name "Lady Death" because [[YouAreTheTranslatedForeignWord it's too unoriginal]].
* ItsAllMyFault: In the manga, [[spoiler:she was the one who wished for a world full of talking animals, but was tired and forgot to also wish that they would be friends with humans. Realizing that she's the reason the world's been a mess for the last thousand years does ''not'' sit well with her.]]
* UsefulNotes/JapanesePronouns: Prefers ''watashi''. Just because you're going to end the world doesn't mean you need to be crass about it.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: In the anime, and to some extent in the game as well.
* {{Jerkass}}: In the manga.
* JerkassWoobie: In the anime.

* KarmaHoudini: Never seems to pay for anything she's done, especially in the game. [[spoiler:Unless you count three days of grief-induced starvation.]] Somewhat in the manga, too, though there she does [[spoiler:die briefly, though she's brought back to life no worse for wear]]. Nothing happens to her in the anime, either, though there her crimes are almost entirely an InformedFlaw and there's not as much karma for her to weasel out of.
* KickChick: The game makes good use of her kicking animation; the anime, surprisingly, doesn't show her affinity for foot attacks.
* KickTheMoralityPet: In the manga [[spoiler:she snaps at Kyrie after he snaps at her and then announcing that he's going to turn himself into the World Salvation Committee. She attacks him in a fit of rage but Toppi and Naja stop her thus Kyrie proves his point.]]
* TheKidWithTheRemoteControl: In the game, the Crimson Sun eventually decides to teach her [[spoiler:the words that control Kyrie's Destruct powers. It's just as well, considering she's the only one he'd listen to at that point anyway. Luckily, most of her crazy has been turned to more constructive uses by then; she now intends to use his powers to recreate the world.]]
* LadyOfWar: You'd expect someone who plans to end the world to look haggard. You would be wrong.
* MadBomber: In the game, where she's more upbeat about ending the world. Several of her special attacks involve explosives, including a MolotovCocktail. The ferals also have a rumor that if the Scarlet Plague doesn't blow something up often enough, she starts getting the shakes. Morte claims that's not true, but StuffBlowingUp ''is'' very cathartic and helps clear her mind.
* MagicSkirt: If she ever crouches facing the viewer, things become inexplicably dark under her skirt. Itís not immune to tears though. Somewhat less magic in the manga, where it manages to ride up far enough to expose the edge of her butt at least once a chapter (though it does stop short of showing anything more).
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Kyrie would have been perfectly content to simply let life happen to him were it not for her suddenly showing up.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: With Kyrie.
* MeaningfulName:
** Morte means death, and she desires to kill the world.
** Ashera is the name of an [[ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming ancient mother goddess]], wife of the creator of the world. [[spoiler:When Kyrie remakes the world at the end of the game, effectively becoming the new creator, Morte remains by his side. She's also the first to suggest remaking the world.]] In the manga, [[spoiler:she's literally the being responsible for reshaping the world each time it's destroyed, making her something of a mother to it]].
* MinidressOfPower
* MsFanservice: In the manga, because her MagicSkirt isn't quite so magic. This is in contrast to the game and ''especially'' the anime, where she's actually quite defensive of her modesty.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: Her general sentiment in all things is to just kill it and be done with it, up to and including ''the entire world''. [[spoiler:At least at first. She later decides ''changing'' the world is better than ending it - but if anyone tries to stop her, it's still fastest to kill them.]]
* MusclesAreMeaningless: Her whip-thin arms are perfectly capable of swinging that giant blade around, and her Blow attacks are some of the hardest-hitting in the game.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: She actually has several in the game: "Scarlet Plague", "Beastslayer", and "Lady Death".
* NotEvilJustMisunderstood: Kyrie thinks she's this in the game, that she really cares about the state of the world but [[MercyKill doesn't know any way to help except to end it]]. She seems to think perhaps he's speaking nonsense, but is too distracted by other plot to really reply. [[spoiler:It turns out he may have been ''right'', as once she learns he might be able to fix the world, she's as gung-ho about that as she previously was about using his powers to destroy everything.]]
* ObliviousToLove: In the game, Agan notes that she wasn't aware what Kyrie meant to her until [[spoiler:he asked Naja to kill him so he couldn't destroy the world]]. She also never seems to notice his giddy swooning when they first meet.
* OmnicidalManiac: Oh so much.
* OneHandedZweihander: Occasionally, particularly in the game.
* OneOfTheBoys: Agan thinks of her this way and is flabbergasted any time she says or does something feminine in the game.
* OneManArmy: She can take out groups of enemies by herself with ease. However, the only thing that prevents her from going on a killing rampage is when Kyrie gets himself captured.
* OperaGloves: Tight like gloves, but has no fingers like a long sleeve.
* ParentalAbandonment:
** Her parents are never mentioned in the game, even when visiting the Bacchitav Caravan where she grew up. She's on good terms with Chief Mardrus and treats Agan like a brother, so it's possible something happened to her parents and she was raised by them.
** In the anime, [[spoiler:both her parents died during fighting with the ferals, some time between age seven and twelve. Losing her brother after that is what finally made her snap and decide to end the world.]]
** In the manga, Agan says she had no one growing up, and their childhood flashback shows him offering her a bowl of food, perhaps with the implication that she was a homeless orphan.
* PayEvilUntoEvil: In the game, the only one who thinks anything of her killing [[spoiler:Rajiv]] is Kyrie, and he's quickly swayed into believing that he deserved what she did.
* PetTheDog: She does this a lot in the anime. Inverted in the manga. [[spoiler:Then played extremely straight and literal in the final chapter, as Kyrie remembers when he first fell in love with her: she was holding a puppy and suggesting that the new world should have talking animals.]]
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: With Kyrie, though [[MasculineGirlFeminineBoy their expected personalities are flipped]].
* PinkMeansFeminine: Despite her prowess in and enjoyment of battle, Morte is quite insulted when Agan insinuates she isn't feminine, as if her bright pink outfit wasn't clue enough.
* PowerFist: Some art seems to show her with some sort of metal bands on her hands, similar to brass knuckles; the right is attached to a bracelet via a chain, and the left is sewn into her glove. However, she's never shown to strike an enemy with her fists; the only time she hits anyone is when she punches Agan or Kyrie in annoyance, not to deal real damage. The anime, in particular, recolors the silver bands white, so that they blend into her gloves.
* PsychopathicWomanchild: In the game, much of her destructiveness has a playful bent to it; StuffBlowingUp is just plain ''fun'' and she doesn't think about the consequences. [[TeamMom Agan]] even treats her like a toddler throwing a tantrum when she sulks about attending the peace talks, suggesting that a snack and a nap will improve her mood.
* PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery: In the video game, she really just wants to destroy the world. The fact that it's full of FantasticRacism is just a convenient excuse.
* RapunzelHair: It's down past her waist but doesn't seem to slow her down in the slightest.
* RelativeButton: Agan [[LikeBrotherAndSister may as well be her older brother]]. If you like your innards where they are, you ''don't'' hurt him.
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: In the game and manga, she has a romantic version with Kyrie and a [[LikeBrotherAndSister non-romantic]] version with Agan. Apparently it takes a tag-team to keep up with her.
* SayItWithHearts: In the manga, though many of the things she says are ''not'' the sort of things you'd normally say with a heart.
* SexyBacklessOutfit: The manga shows her back through a corset-like lace in her coat. Averted by the anime, where her coat has a solid back. It's difficult to tell in the game, since every time she's shown from the back, her hair is in the way or she's only a tiny sprite.
* ShesGotLegs: A DVD {{Omake}} nicknames her "The Leggy Terrorist". Odd, considering the anime downplays her KickChick tendencies.
* SleevesAreForWimps: Her long coat is sleeveless despite the fact that she's not muscular at all; just don't mistake her slim figure for weakness.
* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: Depending upon the [[AdaptationDyeJob adaptation]] (and sometimes [[OffModel the current piece of art within an adaptation]]), Morte may fall here. Other times, she appears to be a blue-eyed redhead or a green-eyed brunette.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Always falls for Kyrie being a NiceGuy, even if at first she was just [[InLoveWithYourCarnage In Love With His Destruction]]. Interestingly, the manga brings this to the fore using his EvilCounterpart - Vreveil looks exactly like Kyrie and has the same destructive abilities, but actually wants to use them instead of thinking they're a curse. However, when she [[MistakenForRomance mistakenly thinks he's hitting on her]], she just brushes him off. Apparently there's something else she likes. Somewhat in the game as well, as the first real hint that she feels something for him is when she notes that he's nicer than Agan and not ribbing her for being caught off-guard by a Feral.
* SourOutsideSadInside: In the anime; averted in the game and manga. [[spoiler:Though Agan reveals she was quite sad as a child in the manga, so she may still be carrying that sadness but had repressed it so deeply that even she forgot it was there.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The Funimation dub changes her last name to ''Urshella'', dropping the MeaningfulName from it (but then, her name is least meaningful in the anime anyway, so it's not as big a deal).
* SugarAndIceGirl: In the anime toward Kyrie with a mix of {{Tsundere}}.
* SupportingLeader: Kyrie is the main character, but Morte is the leader (and perhaps only "true" member) of the World Destruction Committee and the plot kicks off and follows her more than him.
* TokenEvilTeammate: She's the only one of the main characters who ''really'' wants to destroy the world, despite their entire team being named for doing just that.
* TranquilFury: When Rajiv beats Agan, she switches from her usual gleeful destruction to a very cold, calculated demeanor and [[spoiler:kills him slowly offscreen]]. Even [[LoveMartyr Kyrie]] is a little disturbed and notes "Morte has a dark side."
* TroubledButCute: In the anime. Not quite so much in the game or manga, as she's more welcoming of company and less prone to brooding.
* {{Tsundere}}: Type A in the anime.
* TheUnapologetic: She doesn't dwell on the past and so sees no need to apologize. So it happened; either do something about it, or get over it and move on. [[spoiler:This manner of thinking protects her from Noctua Rex's illusions: as she has no regrets, his spell can't trap her in them]].
* TheUnchosenOne: In the game, Kyrie was born to destroy the world; nobody said anything about some random girl who wanted in on the action. [[spoiler:As it turns out, falling in love with her is what keeps Kyrie from losing control when the Destruct Code is used. That definitely wasn't in the Creator's plans for the world.]]
* VillainProtagonist: In the manga and video game. Subverted in the anime in which she tries to be one [[PettheDog but ends up helping other people on their journey.]]
* WaifFu: She's only 5'4" (165cm) but is more than capable of taking care of herself in a fight and wielding that {{BFS}}
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Kyrie believes her to be one in the game, claiming that he can tell she loves the world in spite of herself and the only reason she wants to end it is [[MercyKill because she can't stand to see it in the state it's in]].
* WhatTheHellHero: In the manga, in order to make sure that there would be no more human slaves in a village, [[spoiler: she blows it up.]] Kyrie calls her out on this.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Mostly in the anime, but even the manga Morte has sympathetic moments.
* WorthlessYellowRocks: In the game, she's annoyed at the number of treasure chests in the Azure Tower, because despite the number of rare and valuable items inside, the only one she wants is the one Felis Rex promised to trade for a new {{BFS}}; the others are worthless to her.
* WorthLivingFor:
** In the game, [[spoiler:she eventually decides that falling in love with Kyrie is more important than destroying the world, and so calls off her path of destruction - particularly since Lacertus Rex mentioned the Destruct can be used ''creatively''.]]
** In the anime, [[spoiler:her dream of her family convinces her that, as bad as the world is, it's still a wonderful place worth fighting to make batter and she doesn't need to end the world or herself along with it]].
* WrongGenreSavvy: In the anime, because despite her insistence that beastmen and humans cannot live together, Kyrie keeps seeing multiple moments where beast men are trying to change the world for the better and humans falling in love with beastmen.
* {{Yandere}}: In the manga, at her worst.
* YoungAndInCharge: She's 16 and the youngest of the Destruction Committee members.[[note]]Due to dragon biology, Rhi'a may only be the equivalent of 15 [[Really700YearsOld despite being 300]], and Taupy is noted to be the equivalent of his early 20s but may be chronologically younger due to Feral biology [[AllThereInTheManual in certain Japanese extras]][[/note]] However, she's also got the most forceful personality, and she's not lacking in fighting experience, so no one questions why she's the one calling the shots.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A, using thigh high boots instead of socks.

!!Taupy Topuran
[[caption-width-right:200:''"I'm a professional."'']]
->Voiced by: Creator/ToruFuruya ''(Japanese)'', Creator/ErikBraa ''(English game)'', Creator/RobertMcCollum ''(English anime)''

* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Shoes, gloves, a collar, and a bandana on his head, but no shirt or pants in sight.
* AmbiguousSituation: In the game, it's unclear whether Muffy is actually his wife or just his live-in girlfriend. He refers to her as "my girl" but never clarifies whether that's short for girlfriend or just an AffectionateNickname.
* BadassAdorable: He kicks ass! This does not stop small children (or Kyrie) from squeeing over him.
* BadassArmfold: One of his favored poses, including his VictoryPose in the game.
* BareFistedMonk: In the anime and manga, he fights using only his fists. In the game, his weapons are gloves, which is pretty close.
* BearsAreBadNews: For the enemies anyway.
* BerserkButton: Don't call him a teddy bear. The only person that has been able to live up to this day who called him one is [[MoralityPet Kyrie.]] However, in the anime, everyone calls him one and it pisses him off, but he never does anything about it.
* TheBigGuy: Despite being the smallest.
* DeclarationOfProtection: Toward Kyrie. It is a "It's Just that Simple" case in the anime and video game. However, both of these later become the "complicated" type because of Kyrie's status of being able to destroy the world.
* EyepatchOfPower: It doesn't do anything but it makes him look more badass.
* FunnyAnimal: Clearly further down the SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism than most other beastmen, but they don't seem to have any FantasticRacism against him for it; they just mock him for being small and cute.
* FurryReminder: In the manga, he falls asleep and hibernates on the Winter Continent.
* HonorBeforeReason: He wants to be seen as a hero and insists on doing heroic things, even if he's stuck traveling with a girl who ''wants to end the world''.
* UsefulNotes/JapanesePronouns: Prefers ''ore'' to emphasize his masculinity despite his small stature and cute looks.
* KnifeNut: In the anime, but only the first episode.
* LightningBruiser
* TheMentor: For Kyrie in the anime and manga.
* MyInstinctsAreShowing: In the anime, Taupy always insists that he isn't a bear and no one should call him one. However, when they visit the Winter Continent, he has a near-uncontrollable urge to hibernate.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Probably one of the strongest fighters in the game, thanks to being able to chain Flurry attacks. Capable of taking on much larger opponents in the anime and manga as well, while still being barely knee-high.
* RebelRelaxation: He often leans against a wall during cutscenes in the game.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: And he hates it.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Manly Man to Kyrie's Sensitive Guy.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: A Japanese trailer and the Funimation dub spells it ''Toppy'', while some fans prefer ''Toppi'' (the most literal and standard transliteration). The manga {{Scanlation}} flips between ''Toppi'' and ''Taupy'', [[InconsistentTranslation depending on the translator]].[[note]]Kuu Scans prefers the former, Sandy87 the later[[/note]]
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: With his wife. He barely reaches three-feet in height, while his wife is around ''two stories'' tall.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Kyrie in all adaptations.
* VagueAge: The game lists everyone's age except his. Some Japanese material implies that he's the equivalent of being in his twenties, though his chronological age may be different due to Ferals growing at different rates.
* VerbalTic: In the anime. ''Kuma'' in the Japanese version or ''Bear-o'' in some translations of the English version. He doesn't have it in his "inner voice" when he narrates; Kyrie [[LampshadeHanging questions why]].

!!Agan Mardrus
[[caption-width-right:250:''"I am Agan the Green...and Red."'']]
->Voiced by: Creator/HiroyukiYoshino ''(Japanese)'', Creator/AndreCeglio ''(English game)'', Creator/EricVale ''(English anime)''

In the game and manga, Agan is a close friend to Morte, having been in the Golden Lions with her. In the anime, Agan is just a smuggler unaffiliated with the Golden Lions, simply running into Morte, Kyrie, and Toppy through chance. Either way, he often assists the heroes, either for free or a price.

* AdaptationalWimp: In the anime, though not to the same degree as Kirie. While he's shown to at least be able to hold his own enough to take out a guard by himself, he isn't suggested to be a particularly skilled combatant and rarely ever fights at all.
* BadassInDistress: In the video game, he gets captured by the beast men and the group has to save him before he ends up in a FateWorseThanDeath situation.
* {{Bishounen}}
* BreakTheCutie: Subverted. Rajiv tries this method on him when captured. [[InsultBackfire It goes horribly wrong.]]
* TheChewToy: In the video game, to some extent. Morte just loves to abuse him.
* ChildhoodFriend: To Morte in the game and manga. The only thing that keeps him from being [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend unlucky]] is the fact that he treats her [[LikeBrotherAndSister like she's his obnoxious kid sister]]. They have no prior relationship in the anime.
* CoolBoat: Too bad it has a tendency of getting damaged often. The funny thing is that itís a nice boat too!
* CreepyCoolCrosses: In addition to the cross on his face, concept art shows that the ends of his whip have small crosses on them.
* DeadpanSnarker: Across all versions, he's the primary purveyor of sly quips.
* DemotedToExtra: While he's a main character in the game and manga who travels with the team (and in fact provides their means of transportation), in the anime he just happens to show up every couple of episodes.
* DisappearedDad: His father is mentioned to be dead in the game. You can get some of his old equipment for him if you complete a SideQuest.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: When Agan is captured, you can hear Rajiv beating him with a whip trying to get him to [[DoubleEntendre "submit".]] Naja leaves the area because he's disgusted. Rajiv then tries to [[BreaktheCutie break]] him by telling him that members of the Golden Lions betrayed him and got him captured because they're all selfish bastards. When Agan refuses to submit though, Rajiv then threatens him to use something that would hurt him beyond imagination. [[RapeasDrama Umm,]] [[PrisonRape that sounds like something else...]]
* FingerlessGloves
* {{Greed}}: In the anime, he's constantly trying to get money out of the World Destruction Committee, even when he just picks them up off driftwood in the Sand Sea and shouldn't expect them to have any money. In the game, while he helps for free, he's obviously very interested in treasure of any sort and gets rather excited over the Azure Tower's treasure room.
* HouseboatHero: In the anime. Heíll get off it every now and then but every time Kyrieís group meets him, heís always on a boat. In the game and manga, he's the owner of the boat that the team uses to get around; while he gets out on dry land more often, his home is still technically on the Sand Sea.
* IcyBlueEyes: To mark him as the calmer, cooler-headed member of the team.
* IGaveMyWord: As a smuggler, once he's taken a contract, he ''always'' fulfills the delivery. [[spoiler:In the anime, the one time he didn't finish was when a young boy asked him to deliver a message to his older sister, then left before telling him who his sister was. He eventually figures out that it's Morte that the message was intended for.]]
* LaResistance: In the video game, he has his own team called the Golden Lions until he got captured and was forced to join the World Destruction Committee. In the anime, he helps the Golden Lions but doesn't get involved with the actual battles like in the game.
* MommasBoy: Is hinted to be one in the video game to the point that he ''really'' doesn't want his mother involved with what he's doing.
* MyNameIsInigoMontoya: One of his early lines (and his first Quip) in the video game is arguably a parody of this trope.
--> ''"I am Agan the Green... and the Red!"''
* NiceHat: Almost never seen without it.
* OnlySaneMan: Comes off as this.
* RecruitmentByRescue: In the game, the Front saves him from being beaten by Rajiv in the Sky Gaol. Averted in other adaptations: in the anime, he never officially joins the team, and in the manga, he's already a member at the start.
* RedheadInGreen: Fitting his quip about being "the green and the red".
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: In the game, his relationship with Morte is a non-romantic, brotherly variation. She drags him into her world annihilation mess, and he looks after her and makes sure she eats and doesn't get ''too'' crazy.
* TheSmartGuy: Across all versions, he's a planner first and a fighter second.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: His last name is written マードル in Japanese, probably meant to be something like ''Mardol'' but given as ''Mardrus'' in the English game. No other version actually gives him a last name, so it's just a question of fans quibbling over translations. If he were keeping with the ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming of most of the rest of the cast, he name may be meant to be [[ Marduk]].
* TeamMom: Of a sort in the video game; his reason for agreeing to join the Front is to "keep an eye on you troublemakers". He's too laid-back to be a TeamDad, though.
* WhipItGood: In the video game, he's quite skilled with his whip; he uses it briefly at the end of the manga, too. He does not carry a weapon at all in the anime.
* XMarksTheHero: A cross shaped mark on the left side of his face. Subverted in the anime.

!!Rhi'a Dragunel
[[caption-width-right:249:''"All things come to nothing."'']]
->Voiced by: Creator/YuiIchikawa ''(Japanese game)'', Creator/YuuKobayashi ''(Japanese anime)'', Creator/MichelleJohnston ''(English game)'', Creator/TrinaNishimura ''(English anime)''

A dragon Feral who has lived for over 300 years. Being the last of her kind, Rhi'a desires to see the end of the world per to dragon tradition in the game; in the anime, she most certainly does ''not'' want the world to end and hates Morte for wanting to destroy everything. Despite being calm in the game, in the anime she's prone to becoming trigger happy. She's not a fighter in the manga, preferring to sing and be silly.

* ActionGirl: In the game and anime.
* AdaptationalPersonalityChange: Gets hit with this the hardest out of the cast. While she's relatively similar between the game and manga (she's slightly more of a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} in the latter and that's about it), she's a tough-talking, trigger-happy BloodKnight in the anime.
* AdaptationalWimp: The manga robs her of her guns, and so takes most of her fighting ability (she uses her BreathWeapon precisely ''once''). However, it's downplayed, as she's the PluckyComicRelief and just stays out of fights in general, preferring to sing and be silly instead of becoming TheLoad and getting in everyone's way.
* AxCrazy: In the anime.
* BadassBandolier: Her double-belt is actually a string of ammo. Interestingly, she still wears it in the manga, despite not having her guns there.
* TheBard: In the manga, it's specifically stated that it's her duty to know the songs of the history of the world, and she sings a couple songs. The game implies this as well, giving her knowledge and MusicalThemeNaming her attacks, but she never actually breaks into song.
* BeamSpam: Part of her in-game Requiem FinishingMove, along with MoreDakka.
* BloodKnight: In the anime, where she's always itching for a fight.
* BreathWeapon: In the manga, this is her only attack, as she lacks her guns.
* BuffySpeak: Refers to Vreveil as "a shiny" in the manga, despite knowing both that he's an angel and his actual name by that point. It just makes her seem cutesy.
* TheChick: In the game and manga, she provides an emotional center to the group alongside Kirie. Completely averted in the anime, where she's much pricklier.
* ClothingDamage: While her backless dress is protected against tears by her wings and tail, her gloves are ripped apart when her hands transform into dragon claws. [[spoiler:In the final episode of the anime, she injures her arm falling down a ravine and Naja has to rip her sleeve off in order to bandage it.]]
* CloudCuckooLander: In the video game and manga.
* CombatStilettos: In the game and anime. Wears slightly higher and thinner heels than Morte, though they're not quite stilettos. Somewhat justified in the game, as she lived on a cruise ship before deciding to join the Front; practical shoes were probably not a primary concern with Felis Rex fussing over her all day. Averted in the manga, where her shoes are nearly flat.
* CreepyCoolCrosses: The backs of her gloves have standard crosses on them, while the tops of her stockings have crosses with a halo (which makes them resemble the female symbol) and her shoe straps are designed to evoke crosses placed end-to-end. Her two hairpins worn in a crossed style could even be a continuation of the motif.
* TheCutie: In the manga.
* DumbBlonde:
** Averted in the anime; she's not the brightest, often choosing to shoot rather than speak, but she has moments of clarity better than Naja.
** The game [[ZigZagged plays with]] the trope: while she's a little cuckoo sometimes, she's also smart enough to realize that both humans and plants contain many of the same chemicals, such as water and nitrogen.
** Played fairly straight in the manga, as she's permanently in CloudCuckooLander mode and her ditziness makes her seem quite stupid.
* DraconicHumanoid: Of a CuteMonsterGirl variety. Normally, she only has the horns and a series of small ridges down her back, though she's capable of growing a scaly tail and wings (the manga makes these a permanent part of her design).
* ElegantGothicLolita: Her general clothing style, though her personality is anything but doll-like in the anime.
* TheFatalist: In the game, thanks to her PsychicPowers telling her what's going to happen and the dragons' ObstructiveCodeOfConduct preventing her from even ''trying'' to change fate. Kyrie eventually inspires her to try anyway.
* GenericCuteness: Apparently suffers from it, as while Morte is [[InformedAttractiveness stated to be very pretty]], Rhi'a has a near-identical face and similar figure, yet her appearance is never commented on (except by one random NPC on the Zifnir who you may miss if you don't TalkToEveryone, and who [[PermanentlyMissableContent is only around for that one brief level]]).
* GracefulLadiesLikePurple: Aside from black and white, the accents on her outfit are purple (including her scaly dragon body parts). This is more fitting in the game, where she's obviously of a high status and has a more traditionally-feminine personality.
* GunsAkimbo: Her primary fighting style when she's not in dragon form.
* TheGunslinger: In the game and anime.
* HairDecorations: A tiny crossed pair of clips holding her bangs.
* HairTriggerTemper: In the anime.
* ImmortalImmaturity: Rhi'a is 300, often taken as the draconic equivalent of fifteen. She acts far closer to your typical teenage girl than a centuries-old dragon in most cases; the manga makes her seem ''even younger'' [[AdaptationalCurves in spite of her very full bra]].
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons
* LastofHisKind: In the game. In the anime, she mentions family in Dragon Valley, though when we get there, it's got nothing but large skeletons (she doesn't react, though, so apparently the place always looks like that).
* MakeMeWannaShout: All of her magical attacks in the game have [[MusicalThemeNaming musical-themed names]]. Using them makes her scream and blast the enemy.
* ManySpiritsInsideOfOne: When she summons the spirits of her ancestors, she summons the spirits of ''all'' her ancestors. They temporarily take over her body.
* MeaningfulName: [[ Rhea]] was a [[ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming Greek Titaness who was often conflated with Cybele]], known for giving visions to young female oracles.
* MoreDakka: Part of her in-game Requiem FinishingMove, along with BeamSpam.
* TheNicknamer: She calls Felix Rex "Mr. Meow", Kyrie "Destruct", Elephas Rex "Woolly", and Naja "Barky" in the game. In the manga, she calls Morte "Okorinba-no-Punpun-san" [[labelnote:Translation]]Something like "Miss Grumpy-Grumpus"[[/labelnote]] and continues calling Kyrie "Destruct" and sometimes "Kyri-kyri".
* TheOjou: Treated as one in the video game by Felis Rex.
* OracularUrchin: Somewhat in the game. While she's [[Really700YearsOld really 300]], her body is that of a young teen and her ramblings don't always quite make sense.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: HornedHumanoid with the ability to sprout wings and a tail, with the ability to see the future.
* PartialTransformation: In the game, many of her attacks make use of partial transformations. Her aerial attacks always use her wings, and her blow attacks use her claws and tail; if she doesn't need a dragon part, she doesn't normally transform it. She's never seen to take a full dragon form, though the ''very'' draconic skeleton of her great-great-grandfather implies she either has one or will gain one as she ages. She uses similar attack patterns in the anime, but in the manga, she simply always has her wings and tail and never transforms her hands into claws.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Thanks to being a human-shaped dragon. She's the smallest of the humanoid main characters, taller only than the teddy-sized Taupi, yet is capable of a large damage output with both her guns and transformed dragon form.
* PluckyComicRelief: In the manga. Occasionally in the game as well, though to a much lesser extent.
* PrescienceIsPredictable: Especially in the game, she's grown incredibly bored due to knowing things that will happen and not being allowed to act to try to change them. [[spoiler:This is why Kyrie is so interesting.]]
* PunctuationShaker: It's unknown if it's a dragon thing or just a Rhi'a thing. Some translations render her name as just Lia, averting the trope.
* PurpleEyes: To mark her as a dragon.
* PurpleIsPowerful: She's a purple dragon and is as strong as you'd expect a dragon to be.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: She's at least 300 years old.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Red to Naja's Blue in the anime.
* SayItWithHearts: In the manga. In contrast to Morte, her hearts are just an indication of child-like cuteness, rather than insanity.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: The dragonkin of the game have a rule governing their PsychicPowers in that they may see the future but may not act to change it. Rhi'a eventually decides to join up with Kyrie anyway, as she believes this is "the thing to do" even if it's not exactly what her ancestors would have wanted.
* {{Seers}}: As a dragon, she's capable of seeing the future. This and the dragons' tradition of not interfering with the progress of the world has left her incredibly ''bored'', as nothing surprises her and she isn't allowed to do anything about it. [[spoiler:Apparently, however, she's got a little bit of a blind spot when it comes to Kyrie and Morte - the former because he's not quite human and is out to change his own destiny, the later because she's just plain chaotic and unpredictable.]]
* SexyBacklessOutfit: Normally, it shows off the little row of ridges down her spine, though it also allows her to sprout her wings and tail without ClothingDamage (her tail seems to grow from somewhere up around her kidneys rather than her pelvis).
* ShipperOnDeck: In the manga, she squees when it's clear Kyrie and Morte share feelings. She's similarly happy for them in the game, [[spoiler:perhaps because they're the first couple she's ever met that she ''doesn't know'' the outcome for, so she gets to experience the joys of shipping for the first time]]. Averted in the anime, where she's got a bit of a crush on Kyrie herself and hates that Morte spends so much time in his company.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: A Japanese trailer and the Funimation dub, as well as some fans, prefer her name simplified to ''Lia'', though this doesn't preserve the PunctuationShaker in リ・ア.
* StockingFiller: With visible garters to hold them up, though they don't seem to be attached to a belt. Instead, they double as gun holsters.
* SupernaturalIsPurple: In the game, where her ability to see the future is a deep part of her character.
* ThirdPersonPerson: In the manga.
* {{Tsundere}}: In the anime, she's Type A to everyone and Type B to Kyrie. Averted in the game.
* UnknownRival: To Morte in the anime. She has a bitter, seething hatred for her, but Morte just sees her as yet another World Salvation Committee mook.
* UselessAccessory: Her belt becomes this in the manga. It's full of ammo, but she has no guns to shoot them with.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: Speaks with one when channeling her ancestors.
* WillingChanneler: In the game, she's capable of channeling the spirits of her ancestors all the way back to the first dragon ([[ManySpiritsInsideOfOne all at once]]), in order for Kyrie to ask them questions.
* YouMonster: In the video game, she says this (and becomes her final Quip) to Lacertus Rex [[spoiler:upon finding out he wants to make a new world with humans as the base material]].
* ZettaiRyouiki

!!Naja Gref
[[caption-width-right:249:''"I will stop you, though it cost me my life."'']]
->Voiced by: Creator/HiroMizushima ''(Japanese game)'', Creator/DaisukeOno ''(Japanese anime)'', Creator/AwwabBukhari ''(English game)'', Creator/AnthonyBowling ''(English anime)''

A half-human, half-beastman born to the previous Lupus Rex and a human woman, which earns him a large amount of scorn and racism; how racist changes in all three formats. Very analytical and competent, Naja is the main pursuer to the World Destruction Committee.

* AdaptationalWimp: Not suggested to be a particularly strong fighter in the anime, where he rarely gets involved in physical action. This is in contrast to both the game and manga, where he is a skilled warrior and soldier.
* BatmanGambit: In the anime, he does this to find the main characters.
* {{Bishounen}}
* ClothingDamage: Like Rhi'a, his gloves are ripped apart when his hands transform into claws.
* CreepyCoolCrosses: Has a cross on his scarf and the back of his gloves, as well as a tattoo on his right shoulder.
* FingerlessGloves
* FriendlyEnemy: In the anime, where he intends to win the Destruct Code from Morte via gambling and is always trying to find a compromise compared to Rhia who just wants to shoot Morte dead.
* FurryReminder: In the manga, he wags his tail when happy.
* GenderBlenderName: Naja is an Arabic naming meaning "survived", but it's traditionally given to girls.
* HalfBreedDiscrimination: No one lets him forget he's a half-breed because of this. Many of his peers at work insult him due to the standing of humans as slaves, mocking that his blood or Naja himself smells of human and even treating him terribly despite his possibly high rank. Rajiv, who Naja works under, insults Naja almost immediately after the game starts and calls him out for his half-breed species in the manga. In the anime, it doesn't even seem like the boss of the entire World Salvation Committee likes Naja.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Stated in the game that he's the son of the previous Lupus Rex and a human woman. The anime and manga mention that he's a half-human, but don't say who his father was.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:In the video game.]]
* HeroicAlbino
* HonorBeforeReason
* HumanMomNonhumanDad: The product of such a marriage, with an ordinary human woman and a Silverwolf father.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Uses a set of wind and fire wheels.
* InSeriesNickname: In the game, Morte calls him "Professor" and Rhi'a later dubs him "Barky", which he dislikes.
* IntroOnlyPointOfView: He's the first character you control in the game, but doesn't even appear on screen for quite some time after switching to Kyrie; after that, he's an antagonist. [[spoiler:Until he joins your party to help resurrect Kyrie.]]
* LineageComesFromTheFather: He may be half-human, but apparently Feral traits are dominant over human ones, as he looks indistinguishable from those of pure blood. However, he apparently [[TheNoseKnows smells a little different]].
* LittleBitBeastly: Like most of the Ferals, including full-blooded ones, he appears largely human with just a fluffy tail to set him apart from normal humans.
* ManInWhite
* MommasBoy: Hinted at in the game.
* MissingMom: He believes her to be dead since his late childhood/early teen years. [[spoiler:She's actually in hiding in Mechto, but he never quite realizes it even after speaking to her.]]
* NobleDemon: He's a nice guy, but it's expected seeing how his workplace treats him.
* NotSoAboveItAll: He's exasperated by Morte's bombastic behavior, but his VictoryPose is nearly as flashy as hers.
* OperaGloves: Tight like gloves, but has no fingers like a long sleeve.
* OutOfFocus: While he's one of the most central characters to the narrative in both the game and manga, where he gets plenty of solo focus to provide insight on the inner workings of the World Salvation Committee, in the anime he's mostly just Rhi'a's more reserved partner. His past and history of being subject to HalfBreedDiscrimination, both critical parts of his character in the game and manga, are also only alluded to a few times in the anime.
* PartialTransformation: His various attacks in the games that use his claws rather than his wind-and-fire-wheels only require his arms to change.
* PowerMakesYourHairGrow: When he transforms into his stronger wolf-like state, his hair is much longer, in addition to the fur that covers his arms.
* RedOniBlueOni: He's consistently the Blue, though who is his Red varies: in the game, it's Rajiv, but in the anime, Rhi'a takes the role with her new HairTriggerTemper.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: In traditional red.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Prone to using big words, especially in the manga. "Thermal nociceptors" anyone?
* SixthRanger: In the game, where he joins the team last after spending most of the story as an enemy.
* TheSmartGuy: In the anime and manga, especially, but the game makes it clear he's no idiot, either.
* SpecsOfAwesome: Is perfectly capable of keeping up with the rest of the cast without removing his glasses.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Funimation and [[{{Scanlation}} Kuu Scans]] render his name as ''Nadja''.
* StoicSpectacles
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Averted. While he's got the white hair, the red eyes, and the pretty face, he's also an extremely decent guy - the only reason he's an antagonist is because [[VillainProtagonist the party is out to destroy the world]]. The game sets the black-haired, black-hearted Rajiv up as his {{Foil}}.
* WhoWouldBeStupidEnough: In the anime, he tends to fall for the stupidest things. One episode comes to mind where he talks to this robot over again telling it that he and Rhia are part of the World Salvation Committee (which the robot messes up because Alligator Lord did not want them interfering with his plans.) Naturally, Rhia is seen as the smarter one of the two in this situation where using violence actually got her somewhere.

!!Ursa Rex
Ruler of Zetska Manor and nearby Barni Village, where Kyrie lived.
* AdaptedOut: Makes no appearance in the anime or manga.
* BearyFriendly: Probably the nicest Beastlord. Kyrie certainly thought so.
* DeathByOriginStory: How did Kyrie find out he was the Destruct? He [[PowerIncontinence accidentally]] killed Ursa Rex and the rest of the villagers.
* PlotTriggeringDeath: While the World Annihilation Front had already "conscripted" him, killing a Beastlord put Kyrie on Morte's radar and made breaking him out of prison worth her while.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: He seemed to have no FantasticRacism towards humans and treated them as kindly as the beastmen under his rule.

!!Felis Rex
* AdaptationalVillainy: He was fairly reasonable in the game, but the anime makes him undeniably villainous.
* AdaptedOut: Not mentioned in the manga.
* CatsAreMean: In the anime.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: In the game; averted in the anime.

!!Porcus Rex
* AdiposeRex: He's the ruler of the pig tribe and is exactly the shape you'd expect.
* AnimalMotifs: All the Beastlords take into account some aspects of their respective race, but he's definitely a walking, talking pig stereotype.
* BellyMouth: His OneWingedAngel form has one.
* DisproportionateRetribution: In the game, he wants to eat a kid for accidentally running into him.
* EatsBabies: In the game, he threatens to eat a human child; this may or may not be a regular thing for him.
* FatBastard: One of the most unquestionally jerkish Beastlords.
* FullBoarAction: His OneWingedAngel form.
* ImAHumanitarian: In the manga, he's specifically stated to have a taste for humans.
* PigMan
* VillainousGlutton: In the game, his belly even has a second mouth in his OneWingedAngel form.

!!Lupus Rex
The current ruler of the wolf tribe; he deposed Naja's father for marrying a human woman.
* AdaptedOut: Makes no appearances in the anime or manga.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He's obviously distraught when his son Rajiv is killed.
* TheNoseKnows: He can smell Rajiv's blood on [[spoiler:Morte]] and knows who murdered his son.

!!Rana Rex
* HumanResources: He works children to the point of exhaustion in his gardens, then uses their bodies as fertilizer.

!!Pistris Rex
* AdaptedOut: Makes no appearance in the anime or manga.
* AmbitionIsEvil: Subverted. Despite Pistris Rex's motive to hold the peace talks, he was actually very reasonable, and he would have helped end the conflicts between Beastmen and humans peacefully.
* SharkMan: He requires a water circulator over his gills to breathe, but has no trouble speaking.
* ThreateningShark: Averted; he's apparently a decent guy (for all five minutes we see of him).

!!Serpens Rex
* AdaptedOut: Makes no appearance in the anime or manga.
* DrivenByEnvy: Most of the Beastlords are out to stop the World Annihilation Front because they don't want the world to end. She accosts the party because she finds Morte's beauty a rival to her own.
* FairestOfThemAll: [[spoiler:She curses Morte for being too beautiful.]]
* FangsAreEvil: As a poisonous snake, she's got some rather impressive fangs.
* HighCollarOfDoom: Meant to evoke a cobra's hood.
* LoneWolfBoss: She isn't affiliated with the World Salvation Committee and is never shown interacting with the other Beastlords.
* PoisonousPerson
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: She's a cobra woman and is generally not a nice person.
* SnakePeople
* SnakesAreSexy: Or at least very obsessed with their appeal to others.
* SnakesAreSinister
* VainSorceress: Of a sort.

!!Elephas Rex
* AdaptedOut: Not mentioned in the manga.
* TheAtoner: In the anime. [[spoiler:He used to be a great general and killed many humans, but has since dedicated himself to helping everyone regardless of race.]]
* BadassBeard
* CombatMedic: Just because he's a doctor doesn't mean he doesn't know how to defend himself.
* DressedToHeal: He wears a LabcoatOfScienceAndMedicine despite the heat being a very real danger on the Summer Continent.
* FrontierDoctor: Especially so in the anime, though he still shows some shades of this in the game.
* GoodIsNotSoft: In the game. Despite being an extremely kind doctor, [[spoiler:he refuses to allow Morte to access the Temple of Light to resurrect Kyrie, because he ''is'' dangerous and could very easily destroy the world; he sacrificed himself to keep the world safe, and Elephas Rex thinks that sacrifice should be honored and the dead should stay dead. When she refuses to turn around and forces the fight, he's a rather tough boss battle.]]
* HonorableElephant: He'll treat anyone, including members of the World Annihilation Front[=/=]World Destruction Committee.
* LoneWolfBoss: In the game, as the Front makes their way toward the Temple of Light [[spoiler:he attempts to stop them. He seems to take no issue with humans and has no part in the political machinations of the rest of the Beastlords, but is still set against the party.]]
* SuperDoc: In the game, Rhi'a insists that he is ''the'' best doctor in the whole world, bar none. [[spoiler:He even knows how to dispel curses.]]

!!Aquila Rex
* AdaptationalVillainy: While he's an arrogant jerk in all adaptations, the manga turns him into a backstabbing traitor, dangerous even to those apparently on his side.
* FeatheredFiend
* GiantFlyer: He's tall for a man, but that's ''really'' big for a bird.
* LargeHam: In the manga.
* {{Pride}}: His downfall every time:
** In the anime, he witnesses several of his men [[TakenForGranite turned to sand]]. He then attacks [[spoiler:Kyrie]], who turns his sword and then him to sand.
** In the game, he underestimates the World Annihilation Front. Naja pleaded with him to send for reinforcements, but Aquila Rex sneered at the idea of even wasting an entire platoon against five measly people.
** In the manga, he underestimates [[spoiler:Naja, due to him only being a half-breed]]. He was confident that he was the absolute best and fastest fighter, but was undone by his AchillesHeel: [[spoiler:he's afraid of fire, like all Ferals, whereas a half-human is not]].

!!Noctua Rex
Another of the twelve Beastlords. He traps the Front in their own memories.
* AdaptedOut: Is not mentioned in the manga or anime (the Depths of Memory is apparently just a natural property of the cave there, rather than a spell).
* MasterOfIllusion: He tricks the members of the Front into reliving their worst memories. [[spoiler:It doesn't work on Morte, as she lives in the moment and doesn't dwell on regrets]].
* OminousOwl

!!Lacertus Rex
* AGodAmI: [[spoiler:Eventually believes himself to be able to use Kyrie's power as the Destruct to recreate the world to his liking - with himself as its supreme ruler, of course.]]
* ActuallyADoombot: [[spoiler:The first time you fight him, it's just an automaton.]]
* AffablyEvil: [[spoiler:In the game.]]
* AmbitionIsEvil: [[spoiler:It leads to delusions of godhood.]]
* FauxAffablyEvil: In the manga. [[spoiler:And video game.]]
* NeverSmileAtACrocodile: In the anime and manga, he's clearly evil. In the game, he's actually rather helpful [[spoiler:the first time you meet him, but that's only because he wants Kyrie's powers for himself.]]
* NonIndicativeName: His English name is actually a misnomer - ''Lacertus'' is in fact a genus of skink, rather than the Latin word for crocodile.
* NonMammalianHair: Has a rather large braid in back of his head. It's ''possible'' it's a wig, as he has a general old-and-stuffy look and a colonial powdered wig wouldn't be entirely out of character, but it's never touched upon.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: In the anime and manga. [[spoiler:And game.]]
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: He's capable of producing them. In the anime, they don't particularly ''look'' like beastmen or humans, but have personality far beyond what would be needed for simple worker drones. In the game, [[spoiler:he's capable of making perfect copies of living or previously-living people.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: It's hard to talk about his role in the game without spoiling some things. His role is simpler in the anime and manga, making talking about him less of a minefield.

[[folder:Primal Lords]]
!!Azure Sea
The origin of water in the game world. Killing him dries up parts of Viteau, making new areas available for later exploration.
* AdaptedOut: Like all the Primal Lords, he's absent from the anime and manga.
* ColourfulThemeNaming
* ElementalEmbodiment: Of water.
* MakingASplash

!!Golden Earth
The origin of soil in the game world.
* AdaptedOut: Like all the Primal Lords, he's absent from the anime and manga.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: His head is two to three times the height of any of your characters. His body is proportionately large, though as the embodiment of earth, he's also rather sedentary.
* ColourfulThemeNaming
* ColossusClimb: The Tower of Earth was built around the Golden Earth's body.
* DishingOutDirt
* ElementalEmbodiment: Of earth.
* NonIndicativeName: All the other colored names tell you a bit about the Primal Lord's appearance, but the "Golden" Earth is in fact a dull grey-brown with red magma veins.
* VolcanicVeins: They're red, to resemble magma.

!!Crimson Sun
The origin of fire in the game world.
* AdaptedOut: Like all the Primal Lords, he's absent from the anime and manga.
* ColourfulThemeNaming
* ElementalEmbodiment: Of fire.
* PettingZooPeople: Resembles a large, mannish lion.
* PlayingWithFire
* TheUnfought: [[spoiler:Among all the Primal Lords, he's the only one you don't fight. Instead, he willingly reverts to his egg form in order to give Kyrie his body back.]]

!!Jade Zephyr
The origin of wind and breezes in the game world.
* AdaptedOut: Like all the Primal Lords, she's absent from the anime and manga.
* BlowYouAway
* ColourfulThemeNaming
* ElementalEmbodiment: Of air.

[[folder:Celestial Beings (spoilers for final boss and manga)]]
!!The Creator
The Creator of the entire world who has grown tired of it and now wishes to destroy it using Kyrie.
* AdaptedOut: Is not mentioned in the anime or manga.
* BiggerBad: Of a sort.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: The Creator created the world. Duh.
* GodIsEvil
* GreaterScopeVillain: She isn't even ''mentioned'' for most of the plot, but [[spoiler:she's the one who created Kyrie's powers in order to use him to destroy the world]].
* LittleMissAlmighty: She appears to a woman in her thirties.
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler:She's actually Kyrie's mom.]]
* TheMaker

One half of the Destruct system in the manga, the other half being Kyrie himself. Like Kyrie, he's capable of turning things to sand. Unlike Kyrie, he wants to fulfill his destiny to destroy the world.
* ArchangelUriel: ''Vreveil'' is actually an alternate name for Uriel (in some interpretations of Literature/TheBookOfEnoch, anyway). He's got both the [[LightEmUp Light]] and [[TheGrimReaper Death]] facets pretty well covered.
* CelestialParagonsAndArchangels: Specifically named ''Archangel'' Vreveil.
* CanonImmigrant: Appears only in the manga.
* DishingOutDirt: Has the same ability to turn things to sand that Kyrie does.
* EvilCounterpart: To Kyrie. They look alike and fight alike, but Vreveil wants to destroy the world.
* EvilRedhead: The only real way to tell him apart from Kyrie, aside from the wings.
* TheGrimReaper: For the world. When the world's thousand years are up, he and Kyrie are supposed to destroy it so it can be remade into something new.
* UsefulNotes/JapanesePronouns: Favors ''ware'' when referring to himself. Normally uses ''anata'' when addressing others, though he calls Kyrie ''onore'' because he's a very disobedient assistant.
* LightEmUp
* LightIsNotGood: His light is extremely destructive and he almost seems to take a certain amount of glee in using it to kill people.
* NotSoStoic: Until the end of the manga, when [[spoiler:Kyrie realizes he has Creator powers as well as Destruct powers]]. Suddenly Vreveil becomes capable of extremely intense shock, anger, perhaps even fear...[[spoiler:and then smiles as he dies, as he's finally free of his fate.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: A manga cover depicts him with reddish-brown eyes.
* ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming
* TheStoic: His usual facial expression is one of impassive nonchalance. It isn't specifically stated what his voice is like, but you could read his lines in a CreepyMonotone and it would be perfectly fitting.

* WingedHumanoid: Six of them.

[[folder:Other Characters]]
!!Uncle Agni
Kyrie's uncle who has raised him since he was young in the game.
* AdaptedOut: He's not mentioned in the anime or manga.
* CoolUncle: Kyrie seems to respect him quite a lot.
* MeaningfulName: ''Agni'' is a Sanskrit word meaning "fire", and is also the [[ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming god of fire and heat]] in Hinduism. [[spoiler:This Agni is in fact the Crimson Sun, elemental embodiment of fire.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: Kyrie lost his parents when he was young, so Agni stepped in.
* SacrificialLamb: Like the other residents of Barni, he was one of Kyrie's victims the first time his powers got out of control. [[spoiler:Except he wasn't. As the Crimson Sun, he's the one who ''activated'' Kyrie's powers and was perfectly fine.]]
* SupremeChef: It's clear where Kyrie got his culinary skills from.

The son of the current Lupus Rex.
* AdaptationalHeroism: The manga makes him far more sympathetic than the game ever did. While he's still extremely arrogant and racist, he ''does'' really desire to save the world instead of just using his position as an excuse to do whatever he wants.
* AdaptedOut: He doesn't show up in the anime.
* AssholeVictim: In the game, he's shown to be an unrepentant jerk at all turns in the game so that you'll have zero sympathy for him when [[spoiler:Morte kills him for torturing Agan]].
* AttackAttackAttack: His first option when confronting an opponent is to charge head-on at them. Naja is worried [[LeeroyJenkins this is going to get him killed]].
* BeleagueredChildhoodFriend: In the game, Naja comments that they used to be friends, but he can't believe the man Rajiv has become.
* {{Foil}}: To Naja. Whereas he's calm and calculating and has a general sense of honor, Rajiv is brash and petty. They even share a similar design with a flipped color palette.
* ItsAllAboutMe: He's extremely selfish.
* HateSink: The game is slow about trotting out its true BigBad, so Rajiv is there for the first third of the game to give you someone to really hate.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: In the manga. He's still got a really abrasive personality, but ''does'' genuinely desire good for the world.
* {{Jerkass}}: Any time he's on screen in the game, he's ''not'' doing anything nice, whether that's insulting Naja or beating Agan for fun.
* PlotIrrelevantVillain: Aside from being a HateSink, most everything he does is irrelevant: Naja could've locked Kyrie in jail on his own, and Agan would have been sought out to add to the team whether or not he needed rescuing first. Rajiv just provides some extra boss fights.
* TheProudElite: Being the equivalent of a prince ''and'' a skilled fighter has done absolutely nothing for his modesty.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Red to Naja's Blue in the game. Their actual color palettes are switched, however.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: In blue.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: [[{{Scanlation}} Kuu Scans]] translates his name as ''Rajif''.[[note]]Which ''is'' technically the standard translation of ラジフ; if it were intended to be ''Rajiv'', it would more likely be ラジヴ[[/note]]
* TortureFirstAskQuestionsLater: Agan tells him he's got his order wrong: he's beating him senseless without asking any questions. Rajiv replies that he doesn't ''need'' answers; he's just having fun.
* TortureForFunAndInformation: He ''really'' gets a kick out of beating Agan.
* VillainForgotToLevelGrind: Averted. While your first fight against him with just Kyrie and Morte isn't particularly tough (as it's one of your first and the game is still easing you into the mechanics), your final fight against him to rescue Agan is ''much'' tougher (despite the fact that you've added [[LightningBruiser Taupy]] to your team), to the point that many players quit the game at that point because of the sudden difficulty spike.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: In the manga. He has a good goal - saving the world from terrorists - but refuses to listen to reason and jumps in without considering the consequences.

The commander of the Golden Lions and Agan's old friend.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: He's blond and wants nothing more than for humans to be free to live as they please.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: He and Agan had many adventures together in the past, and he's currently fighting Feral tyrany...somewhere just outside the scope of the plot.
* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler:He's one of Kyrie's victims the second time he loses control of his powers.]]

* AdaptedOut: Not even so much as mentioned in the manga.
* AffectionateNickname: Taupy addresses her as "Kitten"[[note]]猫ちゃん or ''Neko-chan'' in the original Japanese[[/note]] half the time.
* AmbiguousSituation: Whether she's Taupy's wife or just his live-in girlfriend.
* DemotedToExtra: While she was already an extra in the game, the anime relegates her to just being a memory that Taupy once unsuccessfully hit on at a bar.
* SatelliteLoveInterest: What does she do aside from sit at home waiting for Taupy?
* SupremeChef: According to Taupy, her home cooking is some of the best around.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: The Huge Girl to Taupy's Tiny Guy.

An anime-only young man whose importance to the plot is not revealed until very late in the story.
* CanonForeigner: Was created specifically for the anime and doesn't appear in other adaptations.
* ChildSoldiers: He was twelve ''at most'' when he joined the Golden Lions. He may have been ''younger'', given apparent age differences in flashbacks.
* CynicismCatalyst: Was one for [[spoiler:Morte]].
* DeathByOriginStory
* LaResistance: He joined the Golden Lions to fight for human equality.
* PosthumousCharacter: All we learn about him is from [[spoiler:Morte's and Kyrie's]] flashbacks.

!!Aya and Shin
A human woman who was falsely imprisoned and a beastman prison guard who have fallen in love.
* AerithAndBob: In comparison to the main characters, who have rather unusual and exotic names by both Japanese ''and'' American standards, their names are pretty common.
* CanonForeigner: They appear only in the anime.
* DubNameChange: Her name becomes Almeida and his becomes Lester.
* InterspeciesRomance

An old friend of Taupy's who was once a fellow member of the Hero Guild.
* CanonForeigner: Appears only in the anime, though he may be an adaptation of Taupy's game-only friend Ace.
* EyepatchOfPower

Naja's second leutenant in the manga. He's a bit of a fanboy and records everything Naja does, so he always has a camera on hand.
* CameraFiend: Always carrying around his large camera. Naja actually seems to appreciate or at least accept this, as it makes research easier when everything is recorded.
* CanonForeigner: Appears only in the manga.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: He has a very pretty face, and his humble, gentle way of speaking doesn't help. The only way to be sure he's male is to take note of his very flat chest.
* InstantFanClub: He's a big fan of Naja and respects him a great deal. Unfortunately, due to HalfBreedDiscrimination, he's probably Naja's ''only'' fan.
* LittleBitBeastly: His usual form is entirely human except for a wolf tail.
* UsefulNotes/JapanesePronouns: Uses ''watashi'', which makes him sound polite and a touch formal - or feminine, as men normally change to ''ore'' or ''boku'' among friends, whereas women may continue using ''watashi''.
* PettingZooPeople: He's capable of transforming into a much more wolfy form when he needs to, usually using it to move faster or complete feats of strength or agility that human limbs can't accomplish.
* RoyalRapier: This and his snappy suit imply that he's of some high status in Wolf Tribe society.

!!Dragonkin Elder
Rhia's grandfather and an expert on the nature of the world. She suggests Kyrie consult with him to learn about his powers and destiny.
* CloudCuckooLander: In the manga. It's obvious where Rhi'a got her nuttiness from.
* DemBones: He's nothing but a very large skeleton.
* {{Dracolich}}: A very large ''dragon'' skeleton. Unusually for the trope, he's actually not a bad guy.
* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: What does a dragon's spirit look like? Unknown. It's easier to communicate with mortals when you have a physical body for them to look at, so he haunts his own skeleton and uses telepathy to talk to anyone nearby.
* UsefulNotes/JapanesePronouns: Favors ''washi'', as he's an old man.
* TheStoryteller: Not only is this his job, but the manga chapter which introduces him is titled ''Kataribe'' (The Storyteller).
