* ChickMagnet: Damn near everyone on the island wants him. [[FoeYay Including the villains.]]
* TheChosenOne
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Generally comes across as a [[IdiotHero clueless, impulsive idiot]]... unless he gets into a fight, in which case the FABULOUSNESS of the ensuing beatdown will in no way make it any less painful.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Red hair, red eyes.
* DanceBattler: When piloting the Tauburn, even incorporating ''pirouettes'' into his combat repertoire.
* DisappearedDad: His reason for coming to the island. [[spoiler:[[CallingTheOldManOut To more or less give him a good, solid punch to the face.]] And Lord love him, that's exactly what he does in Episode 23.]]
* DualWielding: Wields the Star Swords Emeraude and Saphir.

* GenerationXerox: We finally see his grandpa in episode 16, and physically, they're pretty much dead ringers of each other. [[spoiler: Ironically he and his dad, Tokio Tsunashi, look ''less'' alike than Takuto and his granddad.]]
* [[GoodScarsEvilScars Good Scars]][=/=]XMarksTheHero: Has an X-shaped scar on his chest, although it's actually the Phoenician letter "[[http://img829.imageshack.us/img829/9620/1286209034282.jpg taw]]"

* UnwantedHarem: Though he's more or less [[ObliviousToLove oblivious]] to it.
* WillfullyWeak: He only unleashes his NewPowersAsThePlotDemands when he's really on the ropes. Some of his commentary during those moments are indicative that he could do them all along.

!'''Wako Agemaki'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Wako_4574.jpg
Heroine of the series. A member of the school drama club, "Midnight Flight." She is the South Maiden, who can unlock the seal of Southern Cross Island. She is pursued by the Holy Order of the Glittering Crux.

->Voiced by: Creator/SaoriHayami
-----

* ArrangedMarriage: With Sugata.
** PerfectlyArrangedMarriage: They get along very well, they go out or spend time together very often too.
* BarrierMaiden: Keeps the Cybodies from getting off the island so long as her seal isn't broken.
* BettyAndVeronica: The Archie.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Even the sweet-natured South Maiden has her limits sometimes. It's advisable not to cross them. [[spoiler:Madoka Kei found this out the hard way when she [[GrandTheftMe briefly stole Takuto's body]]]]. [[spoiler:She also puts up a pretty good fight against Head when she gets in her Cybody in Episode 25.]]
* [[spoiler:BerserkButton: Do NOT hurt the people she loves. Especially Takuto or Sugata.]]
* BigEater: Gets hungry easily and is never once seen to turn down food or a chance at a meal.
* BrownEyes
* TheChick
* ChildhoodFriends: with Sugata and Keito.
* CloserToEarth
* CovertPervert: Or, considering both Jaguar and Sarina knew ''[[YaoiFangirl exactly]]'' what she was fantasizing about, not ''quite'' so covert.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass
* TheCutie
** BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler:Wako is devastated when Sugata uses his King's Cybody to rescue her, putting himself in a coma in the process. Thankfully, they both recover.]]
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: [[spoiler: Instantly sees through Madoka's GrandTheftMe trick (even [[LampshadeHanging outright saying]],[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome "You're a Glittering Crux member using your First Phase to try and screw with me, aren't you?"]]).]]
* DistressedDamsel: See MacGuffinGirl.
* GirlNextDoor
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold
* HeIsNotMyBoyfriend: Denies that there are any "sparks" between Takuto and her, but EveryoneCanSeeIt.
* LoveAtFirstNote: Sugata says that she can inspire this on whoever hears her sing.
* LoveAtFirstSight: Implied with Takuto, in spite of hints that she may [[LoveTriangle also have strong feelings for Sugata.]]
** LoveHurts: [[spoiler:Episode 25 lampshades this, as she bittersweetly wishes she never met Takuto, as she endures the pain of deeply loving both of them.]]
* MacGuffinGirl: The antagonists constantly try to capture Wako in order to break her South Maiden seal so they can upgrade their Cybodies.
* MeetCute
* NiceGirl
* TheNoseKnows: She is able to detect the location of somebody by their smell.
* {{Protectorate}}: To Takuto and Sugata.
* RaisedByGrandparents
* RunningGag:
** Whenever a stomach growl is heard, it's typically coming from Wako.
** Whenever something involving Takuto and Sugata could be interpreted sexually in any way, [[YaoiFangirl she imagines it]].
* SecondLove: Takuto's.
* SilkHidingSteel
* TaremeEyes
* TragicDream: [[spoiler: Wako's dream to become a singer in Tokyo. As a Maiden she cannot leave the island unless her seal is broken, and she will not let that happen since it would also unleash the Cybodies on the rest of the world. At the end of episode 4,]] [[spoiler:Takuto vows to destroy all of the Cybodies to give Wako the chance to fulfill her dream.]]
* YaoiFangirl: Has some... ''interesting'' fantasies about Takuto and Sugata.

!'''Sugata Shindō'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/830px-Sugata_Shindo_2780.jpg
A member of Midnight Flight club along with Wako. He is engaged to Wako, but doesn't seem to mind that Wako takes an interest in Takuto.

->Voiced by: Creator/JunFukuyama
-----

* AbsoluteCleavage: His [[spoiler:Emperor]] outfit has a V-neckline that shows off his abs and goes down to where his pubes would be.
* AlliterativeName
* AgeAppropriateAngst: Keep in mind that he's a first-year high school student. And that he's fighting against an evil organization that wants to use the islands secrets for some sort of dastardly scheme. And that he can't leave the island under penalty of death. And that [[spoiler:whenever he falls into a deep slumber, Keito has to do something involving getting naked to wake him up... [[{{Squick}} Yeah.]]]]
* AmbiguouslyGay: He does love and care for Wako, but nowhere has it been shown that this is a romantic love. Also, his professed "curiosity" about Takuto as well as his [[HoYay gay subtext]]-dripping conversations with [[spoiler:Head]] are signs that are too big to ignore...
* ArrangedMarriage: With Wako.
** PerfectlyArrangedMarriage: They get along very well, they go out or spend time together very often too.
* {{Badass}}: Oh, ''yes''.
* BettyAndVeronica: The Betty to Takuto's Veronica.
* {{Bishounen}}
* [[RedOniBlueOni Blue Oni]]
* BrownEyes
* [[spoiler:CameBackWrong: Initially came back as a Type I SoullessShell until Benio used her First Stage (and Takuto delivering an ArmorPiercingSlap in an attempt to wake Sugata up).]]
* ChildhoodFriends: with Wako and Keito.
** [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend Benio and Tiger]] could count too.
* ChickMagnet
* DeadpanSnarker: Nonchalantly asking if Takuto had his first kiss and saying "he'll do her" in the drama club meeting when Takuto declared he would confront the mysterious girl Hina (aka [[spoiler:Okamoto-sensei]]).
* [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide: Takuto seems to imply that he believes Sugata carries a knife around him because he may be contemplating suicide, but Sugata really carries a knife to protect Wako.]]
* TheEeyore: In episodes 6 and 8.
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn: Subverted. At the end of episode 7, it seemed like this would be the case, but he was completely unaffected by Benio's first phase and only fought Takuto because he was ''pissed off''.]]
** [[spoiler: He became the Crux's Emperor in episode 23... but subverts the trope again; he only did it to get to Samekh so he could seal it for good.]]
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: Subverted. It seemed like this would be the case in Episode 6, since nobody has ever awakened after using the King's Pillar as well as Takuto's words at the end, but in Episode 7, we see that he's NotQuiteDead.]]
** [[spoiler: Attempted again in the final episode, but averted yet again thanks to Takuto.]]
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy:
** Since he doesn't seem to mind the fact that there's something going on between Takuto and Wako. He will also willingly lay down his life for her, [[spoiler:going so far as carrying a knife everywhere he goes to protect her.]]
** [[spoiler:All long he planned to have Samekh sealed--thus, sacrificing himself in the process--and for someone to protect Wako while he's gone.]]
* TheMentor: To Takuto.
* NiceGuy: It's quite hard to piss Sugata off. [[spoiler:When it happens, though... [[NightmareFuel RUN]].]]
* ParentalAbandonment: We have a mention of his father being the cause of his birthday-hating issues, but we never see him and the only people living in his mansion are Tiger, Jaguar and himself.
* RebelLeader: Even if he's not the head of the Midnight Flight club himself, everyone on the island seems to consider him head of the local resistance movement.
* RefusalOfTheCall: Capable of piloting the most powerful Cybody in the series, according to Sarina, but refuses to do so for reasons yet to be revealed. [[spoiler: Episode 6 reveals that as the candidate pilot of King Cybody he is forbidden to use it, not only because of the devastating power of his first phase ability, King's Pillar, but activating it would lock him into a coma, just like every other candidate before him. He wakes up right in the following episode, presumably (as of Episode 18) because Keito is keeping his libido active every night.]]
* SingleTargetSexuality: [[spoiler:His complete disregard for Benio after she used her First Phase on him shows that he's incapable of loving anyone... except Wako.]]
** [[spoiler:[[OT3 And maybe Takuto.]]]]
* SupportingLeader: As Enokido puts it, "he'd be the main character of this world if Takuto hadn't come to Southern Cross Island", being the heir to a prominent family and is bonded with the strongest Cybody. He spends time training with Takuto to help the latter become stronger and after some initial frictions, has a lot of faith in Takuto's ability.
* [[spoiler:TookALevelInJerkass: He was a massive dick in episode 8, though [[AgeAppropriateAngst probably for good reason]]. It didn't last.]]
* {{Tsurime Eyes}}
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Order of Glittering Crux]]
All or most of them provide examples of:
-----
* AffablyEvil
* AnimeHair
* BunnyEarsLawyer: With the exception of Keito, all of the department heads are... eccentric, to say the least. However, they all seem to be extremely competent when it comes to the work done by the Glittering Crux. Except when trying to defeat the [[ShowyInvincibleHero Galactic Pretty Boy]], at least.
* CoolMask: Hell, they enable them to pilot ''HumongousMecha''.
* FashionableAsymmetry
* FiveBadBand: The five leaders of their respective divisions.
* LargeHam
* MildlyMilitary: Just as bad at coordination and discipline between as well as within factions as one would expect from an organisation run primarily by libidinous schoolkids (not that the adults are much better, mind).
* NecessarilyEvil: In their eyes.
* SlasherSmile[=/=]PsychoticSmirk: Being able to pull off a good one of these is practically a Crux entry requirement.
* SmugSnake: At least before they actually ''fight'' Takuto...
* ThemeNaming: Each section is a reference to a planet that the titular prince from Antoine de Saint-Exupry's Literature/TheLittlePrince visits.
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:All of them to Head.]]

!'''Head ([[spoiler:Reiji Miyabi, originally Tokio Tsunashi]])'''
Leader of the Vanishing Age section, Head acts as the [[IncrediblyLamePun head]] of the Glittering Crux while waiting for someone to defeat Takuto and Tauburn to take leadership. [[spoiler:Eventually he runs a coup and takes over the Crux himself with support from his branch.]] He pilots the Cybody Reshbal & [[spoiler: later, The Cybody Sinpathy]] and wields the Star Sword Diamant & [[spoiler: Turquoise.]]

->Voiced by: Creator/AkiraIshida
-----

* AnythingThatMoves
* [[spoiler:ArchnemesisDad:]] [[spoiler:Takuto]] is thankfully unaware of this. [[spoiler:Or not.]]
* AttackDrone: His Cybody comes with them.
* [[spoiler:BastardBoyfriend]]
* BigBad
* {{Bishonen}}: [[spoiler:Despite having a teenage son.]]
* TheCasanova: Perfectly willing to seduce anyone, male or female, in order to get what he wants.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* DepravedBisexual: A classic Type 2, seeing sex as just another tool for manipulation.
* EvilCounterpart: Head's Cybody is very similar to Takuto's Tauburn, even using similar weapons like Piles.
** [[spoiler: Surprise, surprise, he's Takuto's dad who was passed over for his family's mark.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilPlan[=/=]GambitRoulette: His plan to become a time traveler.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: In SPADES. His ultimate plan is [[spoiler:to take control of Samekh, power it up to the fullest, and move outside of time so he can relive the "glorious past" forever. This plan requires that the world be destroyed. He doesn't care.]]
* [[spoiler:LimaSyndrome]][=/=][[spoiler:StockholmSyndrome]]: Head and the North Maiden(Sakana-chan).
* MeaningfulName: His Cybody is marked by the letter rē, which indeed stands for "head". [[spoiler: In addition, "Reiji," while figuratively "midnight," literally translates as "Zero Time."]]
** [[spoiler: However, that mark is borrowed, seeing as his father Icaro didn't give him his family's mark.]]
* ManipulativeBastard
* OrcusOnHisThrone: Responsible for the Crux's curiously half-hearted approach towards breaking the South Seal and taking down Tauburn. [[spoiler:He doesn't want to move until Shingo's woken up and he's received his old lover's mark.]]
* PetTheDog: Seems to have a brief one in episode 21, considering his wistful reminiscence of [[spoiler:the women in his life, both of whom he lost due to his pursuit of the Cybodies' power]].
* PurpleEyes
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: [[spoiler: The last episode had him delivering incredibly short ones to anyone present.]]
* ShadowArchetype: To [[spoiler:his son,]]Takuto. He's a callous, withdrawn, and thoroughly manipulative TheCasanova, where our hero is a HotBlooded, kind-hearted, and gregarious ChickMagnet. [[spoiler:Particularly notable in Episode 20's WholeEpisodeFlashback, where we get to see how he managed to comprehensively wreck his own set of ThreeAmigos.]]
* [[spoiler:StarcrossedLovers: With the North Maiden.]]
** [[spoiler: Also with Sora, aka Takuto's mother.]]
* [[spoiler: WellDoneSonGuy]]: [[spoiler: His father refuses to give him the Tau mark, and he becomes obsessed with Cybody's power]]
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]
** [[spoiler: Bizarre hair color seems to run in the family.]]

!'''Kanako Watanabe'''
Takuto's ''married'' classmate and member of the Glittering Crux Brigade under the name, "the President." She's in charge of the Adult Bank, with her section providing most of the monetary funds for the Crux. Her Cybody is Betraida.

->Voiced by: Ayano Niina
-----

* AffablyEvil
* {{Ahoge}}
* [[spoiler:AntiVillain]]
* ArtisticAge: She looks like she's in her late twenties or early thirties. She's actually ''fifteen.''
* [[spoiler: BadassAdorable: Air-headed lonely rich girl? Think again. Her skill in the boxing ring more than proves that she's capable of handling herself in a fight.]]
* [[spoiler:BiTheWay]]: [[spoiler:Has a history with [[DepravedBisexual Madoka]]. Unsurprisingly, it didn't end well.]]
* BrownEyes
* BrutalHonesty: Bluntly states that her marriage is based on her husband being a DirtyOldMan and her being a greedy GoldDigger.
* CrazyPrepared: [[spoiler: We learn in Episode 24 that she doesn't have a yacht just to show off how rich she is; it's supposed to be an escape vessel for all the islanders in case the volcanoes connected to Zero Time erupt.]] Simone and Takeshi are reasonably impressed.
* DarkActionGirl: [[spoiler:She's got a mean straight in the boxing ring.]]
* DeadpanSnarker
* DoUntoOthersBeforeTheyDoUntoUs: Wants to seize the Cybodies for her own section in order to control them, since she believes their release is inevitable.
* HairDecorations
* GoldDigger: As Kanako puts it, her marriage is held together "by the unbreakable bonds of greed."
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn]]
* HiddenDepths: You definitely wouldn't think [[spoiler: BadAss 'World-Champion Boxer']] the first time seeing her.
* ItAmusedMe: When Simone asked her why she [[spoiler:helped her recover from the accident by approivising her Cybody and pretended not to know that "Simone" was only pretending to be loyal as part of a scheme to strike at her illegitimate father's new wife]], Kanako responded with this trope. This trope covers pretty much everything else she does in the series.
* JerkAss: PlayedForLaughs.
** [[spoiler:JerkWithAHeartOfGold]]
* BoobsOfSteel: Having one of the largest bust sizes in the cast has paid off well for her -- she's an expert Star Driver and [[spoiler:champion-level boxer.]]
** GagBoobs
** {{Gainaxing}}
* MsFanservice
* MundaneUtility: She speculates that her first phase may be her beauty and business sense.
* NecessarilyEvil: Her perspective on the Crux's actions - as she sees it, any action is justified in order to preserve the world and regulate the vast power of the Cybodies, no matter how personally regrettable it might be.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Comes across as the biggest floozy who ever lived... until you realize how competent she really is.
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler: She apprivoised to heal Simone's coma, brought on by an accident, and then took her on as a maid even though she knew Simone had ulterior motives in doing so.]] While the manner of the act is questionable (see ItAmusedMe), it does not change the fact that (a) it was a good thing to do that (b) Kanako didn't have to do, but (c) did anyway at personal cost.
* RuleThirtyFour: And HOW!
* TheTease
* WhipItGood
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: From the way she acts, it can be hard to believe that she still attends high school.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Green Hair]]

!'''Keito Nichi'''
Leader of Bouganville under the name "Ivrogne," Keito holds a secret that most of the Crux doesn't know. [[spoiler: She is really the East Maiden, whose seal the Crux has to break in order to release the next phase for the Cybodies.]]

->Voiced by: Creator/AmiKoshimizu
-----

* AffablyEvil: Seems like a nice enough girl, [[HiddenDepths although]]...
* [[spoiler: BarrierMaiden]]
* ClassRepresentative
* ChildhoodFriends: with Sugata and Wako.
* DeadpanSnarker: Mostly aimed towards [[TheTease Kanako]], whose constant flirting she has a front-row seat to in class.
* [[spoiler:DoggedNiceGirl: For Sugata.]]
* FromACertainPointOfView: [[spoiler: Her offer to Mizuno that she would help the latter to leave the island.]]
* {{Jerkass}}[=/=][[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]: Her profile says that she wants to gain as much satisfaction as she can from leading Takuto along and subsequently breaking him emotionally.
** [[BitchInSheepsClothing Bitch In Sheep's Clothing]]: She certainly doesn't SEEM that bad...
*** From an [[http://ninteenpointzerofour.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/stardriver-english11.pdf official pamphlet]] outlining the series: "Her main characteristic is her two-faced personality: normally she's an honors student, but really she's a bitch."
* {{Kuudere}}: Based on her interaction with Sugata.
* [[spoiler:LoveMakesYouEvil: The reason for her entire involverment with the crux is because she's the odd one out in Sugata's love triangle.]]
* MadScientist: Runs the Crux's tech division, and does a fair amount of experimentation in her spare time, as well. Needless to say, little of it is the sort of thing one would ordinarily study in a mainstream lab.
* MeaningfulName: Her moniker, 'Ivrogne', in another instance of GratuitousFrench, translates into 'drunkard', and she's certainly handy with her potions...
** It also serves as a nice link back to Literature/TheLittlePrince who encounters a drunkard who drinks to forget his shame of drinking.
* {{Meganekko}}
* [[spoiler:MyGodWhatHaveIDone: When she realizes that she's just handed over the most powerful cybody to Head and has sentenced Sugata to a life of slavery... or death by HeroicSacrifice.]]
* NotSoAboveItAll: [[spoiler:In Episode 18, when Takuto shows her the picture of Keito and Wako playing model as children, she dismisses it as ancient history and describes Wako's dream of being an idol as childish. One scene later, turns out [[CrowningMomentOfFunny not so much.]] See also HypocriticalHumor.]]
* [[spoiler: OutGambitted]]: [[spoiler:Her plan was to trick the Crux and Head into setting things up for Sugata to achieve Samekh's power and rule the world. Too bad Head had predicted that and made it a vital part of ''his'' plan.]]
* [[spoiler:TheRival]]
* ScaryShinyGlasses
* ShesGotLegs: Her uniform and certain angles have placed quite a bit of emphasis on them.
* [[spoiler:UnluckyChildhoodFriend]]

!'''Benio Shinada'''
Campus Resident Advisor and member of the Glittering Crux Brigade under the name, "Scarlet Kiss." Benio leads the section called Filament. She pilots Peshent and owns the Star Sword Rubis.

->Voiced by: ChiemiChiba
----
* AntiVillain
* {{Badass}}: [[spoiler:She's a Kendo champion.]] Who knew?
* ChildhoodFriends: with George and Tetsuya.
* TheDarkChick
* FlashStep: Her signature move consists of using these to get behind her opponent in the blink of an eye.
* GirlishPigtails
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn]]
* HopelessSuitor: For Sugata.
* InTheBlood: [[spoiler:Like all members of Filament she comes from a marked bloodline that has lost its power.]]
* JerkAss
** [[spoiler:JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She may wish to restore her lineage, but in the end, just like the other members of Filament, was unable to turn her back on the destruction of the world or her friendship with Takuto.]]
* MeaningfulName: Her Cybody is marked by the letter pē, which stands for "mouth". It matches her Crux nickname and her ability to control people by kissing them.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Looks a bit younger than the rest of the cast, though WordOfGod confirms she's sixteen.
* StealthHiBye: Another thing she's fond of using her [[FlashStep ludicrous speed]] for, especially on Takuto, ''in guys' bath''.
* TheUnchosenOne: Wants to restore the honor of her family as Star Drivers (or, less charitably, be seen as a worthy suitor to Sugata). In either case, she's deadly serious about it, forming Filament as a sort of ''department'' of ScrewDestiny.
* TokenMiniMoe: Or rather, she looks like one despite WordOfGod confirming that she's older than most of the cast at 16.
* {{Tsundere}}

!'''Midori Okamoto'''
Leader of the Crux's Science Guild, she is also known as Professor Green. She's the school nurse and owner of the Cybody Yoddock.

->Voiced by: HoukoKuwashima
----
* AffablyEvil
* ChristmasCake
* CombatClairvoyance: Yoddock's Precog Mode.
* CovertPervert: At least she ''tries'' to be covert about it (see FailedASpotCheck).
* DistractedByTheSexy: How she loses to Takuto.
** Really, you can't even call it 'distracted', she pretty much makes a conscious decision to turn off her precognition to better ogle Takuto, and didn't even notice that his sexy poses were the set-up for his FinishingMove.
* DitzyGenius: She's Professor Green, the leader of the Science Guild division of the Glittering Crux, and is a great Star Driver, but she's reduced to nothing more than a squee-ing mess when attractive young males come into the picture.
* FailedASpotCheck: Goes to great lengths to hide her '[[{{Bishonen}} Pretty Boy]] Album', but neglects to do anything about the wall of {{Bishonen}} posters adorning her office.
** Which, hilariously, was BehindTheBlack.
* FatalFlaw: Her unhealthy attraction to high school boys was her downfall.
* GeniusDitz
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn]]
* HotForStudent: Only interested in high school boys.
* MadScientist: Leader of an entire branch of them, and responsible for such exploits as ''warping the time/space continuum in order to pick up teenage boys''.
* MayDecemberRomance: As of the eighth episode, she's shown to be in an actual relationship with Tsubasa, one of her former patients.
* {{Meganekko}}: In her normal appearance and when she was originally in schools. When she uses her powers to turn into 'Hina' she apparently decided that TheGlassesGottaGo.
* MundaneUtility / PowerPerversionPotential: She's a member of an Evil Organization based on world domination and has [[TimeMaster the power to warp time and space]] and what does she do? She turns herself into a teenager to form a {{Bishonen}} harem of course!
* PlotTailoredToTheParty: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Keito. The Mandrake LovePotion [[AwesomeButImpractical only works for teenagers but at the same time is fatal to teenagers]], meaning Midori with her [[FountainOfYouth age changing]] powers is the only one who can make any use of it.
* SchoolNurse
* TimeMaster: [[InformedAbility Stated]]. In reality the only applications of this power we've seen are [[{{Seers}} limited precognition]] and [[FountainOfYouth turning her body back into that of a teenager]].
* {{Underboobs}}: In her Crux outfit.

!'''Takeo Takumi'''
Known as Sword Star of Vanishing Age. His Cybody is Zayinth which wields the Star Sword Grenat. [[spoiler:After Head's coup, it's revealed he has a true mark.]]

->Voiced by: YuukiKaji
----

* AlliterativeName
* CrazyJealousGuy
* EnergyBall
* EyesAlwaysShut
* HellishPupils
* HopelessSuitor: For Marino, who has her eyes towards Takuto.
* LethalHarmlessPowers: The telekinesis that his first phase grants him doesn't really let him do much more than slightly redirect a ball in flight. Then you find out that his Cybody is capable of projecting a considerable number of deadly {{Energy Ball}}s...
* MundaneUtility: His first phase lets him play a mean game of baseball.
* SlasherSmile

!'''Ginta Ryou'''
A rather callous, self-centred Vanishing Age Star Driver codenamed 'Camel Star' who resents his organisation's continued lack of progression to the fourth phase and the invasion of the real world, creating considerable friction with his leader, Head. [[spoiler:Like the rest of his faction, has a true mark that allows him to pilot Cybodies in the third phase.]]

->Voiced by: Creator/RyoheiKimura
----

* TheBeastmaster: His First Phase allows him to control animals.
* CombatPragmatist
* DetachmentCombat: His Cybody's backpack can split off into a gigantic mechanical spider which he can control remotely.
* PowerPerversionPotential: Quite willing to spy on Maidens undergoing purification rituals through the eyes of his animals.
* SurroundedByIdiots: He literally says this about his situation in Crux. See WhyDontYaJustShootHim.
* WhyDontYaJustShootHim: [[spoiler: He wonders the same thing as the audience about the Crux's half-hearted approach to the whole Tauburn business and deals with Takuto ''very'' efficiently. He would have been able to break Wako's seal had it not been for Kou's intervention.]]

!'''Madoka Kei'''
Known as Window Star, she's a member of the Adult Bank [[spoiler:until switching to Vanishing Age after the Crux reaches phase three.]] She pilots the Cybody Hegent and has the Star Sword Perle.

->Voiced by: Creator/{{Yukana}}
----

* AxCrazy: Has a nasty habit of confronting people for little reason other than that she feels bored, and has difficulty seeing any difference between, say, a competitive volleyball match and [[spoiler:going after an enemy outside of school with a Star Sword]].
* CatchPhrase: "How exciting!"
* CuteAndPsycho
* DepravedBisexual: Willing to go for [[AnythingThatMoves just about anyone]], and prepared to use some rather... [[GrandTheftMe disturbing]] methods to accomplish it.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Back in episode three, with Kou.
* [[spoiler: GracefulLoser]] [[spoiler: Proved she can be one, surprisingly enough, in Episode 21.]]
* GodivaHair: In episode 19, unsurprisingly enough.
* InterplayOfSexAndViolence: Even when you consider that it involves playing around with awesome giant robots in a SceneryPorn-eriffic alternate reality, she enjoys Cybody combat ''way'' too much. Episode 21 nearly took it UpToEleven.
* ItAmusedMe: Volleyball competition? Exciting! Giant robot battle? Exciting! Potentially lapsing into a coma and dying? Exciting!
* LipstickLesbian
* ManChild: has dashes of this. She uses third person to refer to herself and wants to be entertained constantly
* TheOjou
* OjouRinglets: With the imperious personality to match.
* OrgasmicCombat: She spends all of episode 21's fight on the knife's-edge of climaxing, if her panting and tone are anything to go by.
* RedOniBlueOni: With Kou. She's an energetic and somewhat bloodthirsty red.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: With Kou.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The girly girl to Kou's {{Tomboy}}. [[CuteAndPsycho Her psychological state]] seems to make her more of a threat to others, however.
* WildCard: Far too unpredictably psychotic to reliably be on anyone's side - the Crux are already starting to have second thoughts about bringing her in to deal with Takuto.

!'''Kou Atari'''
A member of Adult Bank under the name Needle Star. [[spoiler:As a true mark holder, she switches to Vanishing Age once the Crux reaches the third stage.]]

->Voiced by: Creator/MitsukiSaiga
----

* {{Bifauxnen}}
* ButchLesbian
* EarlyBirdCameo: Back in episode three, with Madoka.
* GrandTheftMe: Her first phase.
* MoralityPet: Astonishingly, ''[[AxeCrazy Madoka]]'' serves as hers - at least, enough for [[spoiler:her to stop Wako's seal getting broken because her partner's Cybody wasn't sufficiently repaired to hold out against the inevitable international counterattack when the mechs emerged into the real world]].
* RedOniBlueOni: With Madoka. She's the calm one.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: With Madoka.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The tomboy to Madoka's girly girl. As dangerous as Madoka, if not as...[[UnusualEuphemism excitable]].
* TransformingMecha
* VillainousRescue: [[spoiler:Sabotaged Camel Star's attempt to break the South Seal in order to protect Madoka.]]
* WildCard: Only really cares about [[AxeCrazy Madoka]]'s wellbeing. Everything else, including the overarching goals of the Crux's various factions, is strictly optional.

!'''Simone Aragon [[spoiler:Pamela Watanabe]]'''
Member of the Adult Bank, Simone is Kanako's servant in the Crux and in her "civilian" job also. Codenamed Secretary, she is the pilot of the Cybody Daletos.

->Voiced by: Creator/AyanaTaketatsu
----
* AntiVillain
* BlondesAreEvil
* [[spoiler: DisappearedDad: In a way. Leon Watanabe, Kanako's husband, is Simone's real father, and Simone herself didn't know the circumstances of her birth until one year before the events of the series. And even currently, despite her knowing, nothing indicates that she sees him regularly.]]
* TheDragon: Kanako's personal example, at least, being her 'secretary', though she may have motives of her own if the third episode indicates anything.
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn]]
* [[spoiler: MeaningfulName: Her actual name, Pamela, often intended to mean 'all sweetness', deliberately contrasting with the hatred she feels towards Kanako underneath her facade of politeness.]]
* OfficialCouple: According WordOfGod she is dating Takashi.
* PhenotypeStereotype: Judging from her conversation in the background with Kanako's husband in the third episode, it appears as though she's French.
* UnresolvedSexualTension: As of the eleventh episode, some people certainly do believe a fair bit of this exists between her and Takashi.

!'''Takashi Dai'''
A member of the kendo club, Takashi is also known as Banker. He works a Kanako's servant in the Adult Bank and his civilian life like Simone. He pilots the Cybody Tzadikt and controls the Star Sword Amethyste. [[spoiler: After the cybercasket is destroyed and only true mark users can approvise, Takashi transfer to Vanishing Age as he also has a true mark.]]

->Voiced by: KenjiAkabane
----
* {{Ahoge}}
* BattleButler: Is this in a way to Kanako; he works under her, often seen by her side, and is a skilled swordsman.
* BewareTheQuietOnes
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* DefectorFromDecadence: [[spoiler:Quit Vanishing Age after realising ''exactly'' what sort of nutbags he was now sharing a clubroom with.]]
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn]]
* OfficialCouple: According WordOfGod he is dating Simone.
* TheRival: Played with towards Takuto, particularly in the beginning.

!'''Mami Yano'''
Also known as Undine, member of Bouganville. She pilots the Cybody Kaphrat.

->Voiced by: Creator/ChiwaSaito
----
* BrownEyes
* MeaningfulName: Her alias is "Undine". Undines are mythological water nymphs, and Mami makes a living as a shell-diver.
* OfThePeople: Notably less extreme than several other examples of the trope, but she still hates outsiders, especially since one of them is the source of all their problems.
* PsychicPowers: Can summon a humanoid entity called the "Mermaidoll", which she can control from afar by thought. However, despite being a potent weapon, it also has its drawbacks; Nichi tells her she hasn't perfected it yet, and the Mermaidoll is prone to going out of control.

!'''George Honda'''
The member of Filament known as Raging Bull. George is also a member of the school's boxing club and is constantly seen working out. His Cybody is Alephist, which resembles his Crux name.

->Voiced by: Shun Takagi
----
* BoisterousBruiser
* ButtMonkey: Seems to fill this role rather well. If getting it handed to him by Tauburn didn't qualify him, getting 2 punch knocked out by [[spoiler: Kanako]] probably did.
* ChildhoodFriends: with Benio and Tetsuya.
* CurbStompBattle: Versus Takuto [[spoiler:and then Kanako]]. Poor dude ''still'' hasn't recovered from the shock.
* {{Delinquent}}
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn]]
* HotBlooded
* HopelessSuitor: to Benio.
* [[spoiler:JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Both he and Tetsuya, although they started out as die-hard Crux members, find themselves more and more conflicted about their actions in the Crux and their view of Takuto, who, while an enemy, is also a dorm-mate and friend. And, when Head reveals his master plan and tries to kill Takuto, they find they can't allow it and assist Takuto.]]
* ShoutOut: A boxer named RagingBull?
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Green Hair]]

!'''Tetsuya Gōda'''
Another member of Filament, Tetsuya is also known as Speed Kid. Owner of the Cybody Tetrioht, who turns into a motorcycle.

->Voiced by: Ooki Sugiyama
----
* ChildhoodFriends: with George and Benio.
* CoolBike: Has one. Tetrioht can become one.
* {{Delinquent}}
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn]]
* HopelessSuitor: to Benio.
* JerkAss
** [[spoiler: JerkWithAHeartOfGold: For the same reasons as George.]]
* VirginPower: Lampshaded.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!'''Marino You'''
A member of Vanishing Age, Marino's code name is Manticore. She's the older twin sister of Mizuno, the West Maiden. Also drives the Cybody Ayingott.

->Voiced by: Creator/RyoHirohashi
----

* [[spoiler:ArtificialHuman]]
* [[BigBrotherInstinct Big Sister Instinct]]
** [[KnightTemplarBigBrother Knight Templar Big Sister]]
* HimeCut
* LargeHam: In her Crux persona, in a striking contrast to her usual SilkHidingSteel behaviours.
* MoralityPet: Mizuno.
* ParentalAbandonment: See Mizuno's entry. [[spoiler:Marino was created by Mizuno to help her cope with loneliness after her mom left her.]]
* PolarOppositeTwins: But they like the same things...
* SiblingYinYang: She is [[TheStoic calm twin]] while Mizuno is the [[GenkiGirl cheerful one]].
* SilkHidingSteel
* [[spoiler:TomatoInTheMirror: Marino is a clone created by Mizuno's first phase.]]

!'''Ryousuke Katashiro'''
A middle-aged man who is often seen by Head's side. He opens the meetings of the Crux and seems to be in charge of Vanishing Age when Head is not around. [[spoiler: He is the original owner of the rē mark and has already been involved in the research of the underground ruins even before Head came to the island.]]

->Voiced by: Creator/ShinichiroMiki
----

* ArrangedMarriage: to Sora.
* BrainyBrunette
* EyepatchOfPower
* [[spoiler: EyeScream]]: [[spoiler: He took out his left eye to avoid seeing the affair between Head and his fiancee Sora]]
* FaceOfAThug: When he was younger.
* {{Kuudere}}: Backfired horribly for him. [[spoiler: His fiancee Sora did not realize that he reciprocated her love and fell for Tokio a.k.a. Head instead.]]
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: in both the romantic and platonic sense, he wants the people he loves to be happy.
* [[spoiler: LoveHurts]]
* LoveMartyr: Still helps out Head despite all the crap the guy put him through.
* OnlyFriend: Head's.
* RedHerring: He's the only guy in the show who seems the right age to be Takuto's father.
* XRayVision: His first phase. [[spoiler:Until he clawed out his eye to stop himself from seeing things with it, anyway.]]

!'''Professor Silver'''
One of the oldest members of the Order, currently working for the Science Guild under Professor Green. Had a hand in designing much of the Crux's technology, including the Cybercasket and the Overphase System.
----

* MadScientist
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: Well, professorship.

!'''Shingo Makiba'''
A youthful-looking man, currently in a coma. First seen at the hospital when [[spoiler:Head]] comes to visit in episode 17, where his condition seems to be heavily monitored. [[spoiler:In Katashiro's flashback, it's shown that Shingo is the bearer of the in mark, a mark he had meant to pass on to Head. Head supposedly seduced Shingo for this very purpose, hungry to pursue the power of the Cybodies. However, before he could give Head the in mark, Shingo fell into a comatose state for a reason and manner so far unexplained, and now, Head and the research division are watching his vital signs carefully, as it seems that he is resurfacing from the deep sleep he was trapped in.]]

->Voiced by: Shintaro Asanuma
----

* {{Bishounen}}: To the point of DudeLooksLikeALady. He first appears as a comatose patient with a sheet more or less covering him, making more than a few people have to rewind to verify his maleness. It becomes clear when we see his flat, shirt-hugging chest. Or to some, hear his voice.
* ConvenientComa
* FlamboyantGay: As much as is observable in his so far short appearances, by way of his fashionable look and airy and husky speech pattern. That [[spoiler:''blush'']] and that [[spoiler:''touching'']] almost MORE than confirms the nature of your relationship with [[spoiler:Head]], Shingo.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy
* LoveMartyr: Appears to care deeply for Head, despite the fact that the other man is clearly only interested in him for his mark.
* OlderThanTheyLook: His actual age is unknown, but it appears to be around the same as Head's and when we see him in present day episodes he doesn't look a single day older than when [[spoiler:he met Head]] and later fell into coma fivteen years ago. It's unknown whether this is an effect of his first phase or not.
