!!The Valvrave Pilots
[[folder:The Pilots in General]]
* BadassCrew: All five of them only fight together a few times (usually they're operating in smaller groups), but when they do, they're nigh-unstoppable.
* BodySnatcher[=/=]BodySurf: They can take control of other people's bodies by biting them.
* FamedInStory: Implied, as one of the scientists they rescued in Dorssia refer to them as "the kids who fought the world." Three of them are well known throughout the series; Haruto ([[InSeriesNickname "The boy who fought The world"]]), Saki (a TeenIdol), and Akira (known for her social network, Wired).
* FireForgedFriends: Though some of them had a rocky start (Raizo being confrontational to Haruto at first for wanting to be a pilot and Akira being a {{Hikikomori}}), they have developed a close knit friendship as brothers-in-arms.
* FiveManBand
** TheHero: Haruto
** TheLancer: Saki
** {{The Big Guy}}s: Kyuma and Raizo
** [[TheSmartGuy The Smart]] [[TheChick Chick]]: Akira
* {{Immortality}}: Like the other Magius, they have a HealingFactor which prevent them from dying from even the most lethal of injuries. Unlike other Magius, they have [[TheAgeless ageless bodies]]. There are ways of killing them though, like L-Elf's theory of [[DecapitationRequired severing their heads from their bodies]] or [[CastFromHitPoints excessive use of the Light of Rune.]]
* InstantExpert: All of them had no prior training before becoming the pilots of their respective units. Possibly justified by being turned into a Magius gives them the information they need to operate the Valvraves. A Downplayed example, because they're not exactly super-aces: very talented pilots in lesser equipment can give them a hard time.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Except for Haruto, all of them, each for very different reasons, answered yes to the Valvrave's "Do you resign as a human?" prompt.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent
* ProHumanTranshuman
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: We have a NiceGuy, a TeenIdol, a {{Delinquent}}, a guy with a MoneyFetish, and a {{Hikikomori}} PlayfulHacker as our heroes.

[[folder:Haruto Tokishima]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/RyotaOhsaka


A young man living and attending high school in Jior. He prefers to avoid competition. The apparent death of Shoko at the hands of Dorssian soldiers convinces him to leap into the Valvrave and protect his home. Doing so has turned him into some sort of artificial, body-swapping vampire. His identity as the pilot of the Valvrave is also revealed to the world via livestream of his first battle online. As such, he's become somewhat of an international icon of the opposition against Dorssia.

In the end, he is ultimately victorious over the Council of 101 and proves to the world that the students of Module 77 were the true heroes all along. Sadly, overuse of the Valvrave wipes out all of his memories and kills him, but it is implied that L-Elf managed to get him to remember their promise during his final moments. He, along with the other students who sacrificed themselves for Module 77's victory are immortalized in history.
* EleventhHourSuperpower: After coming to terms with his eventual fate of death, he awakens the ability to freely manipulate Runes just like Cain and Lieselotte.
* {{Adorkable}}: His polite nature and tendency to get caught in... [[AccidentalPervert unfortunate situations]] can make for some hilarious reactions.
* TheAtoner: He wants to marry Saki to take responsibility for the rape that occurred while he was possessed by the Valvrave.
* BadDreams: After Marie's death, he has started to experience horrific nightmares.
* BettyAndVeronica: He's Archie, Shoko is Betty, and Saki is Veronica.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: ''HOLY'' '''''SHIT''''' does this trope fit him. This cute looking fellow is introduced in episode 1 as a somewhat spineless NiceGuy who never gets mad and just wants to get along with everybody; then the events of the episode cause push him past his breaking point and he goes on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge.
* BlessedWithSuck: He is a regenerating vampire with the ability to pilot an awesome robot. He strongly believes that this ability is more of a curse than a blessing. You'll probably ''agree'' with him by the end of episode 10. Season 2 elaborates even more that he's the one who suffers all the drawbacks that come with being a Valvrave, unlike the rest of the pilots.
* BodySnatcher: One of his newfound abilities that lets him hijack another human body by biting them.
* BoundAndGagged: Spends a chunk of episode 4 like this when Senator Figaro tries to kidnap him to the ARUS during his secret escape.
* BreakTheCutie: Really starting to kick in in Season 2. His extreme fits in Episode 13, having his eye blown off temporarily, and after Marie's death, he is clearly showing signs of a bad case of PTSD, including horrific nightmares and impulsive actions. Then it goes FromBadToWorse during the massacre of the Module, where his friends are slaughtered, Shoko forsakes him and Inuzuka dies in his effort to save Haruto and L-Elf.
* ButtMonkey: For most of the first season, Haruto really can't catch a break. With the darker tones of Season 2 settling in, this trait is abandoned.
* TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive: As he's the only known person to have received the injection the Valvrave gives perspective pilots and survive, albeit only one other person has tried so far, he's the only one capable of controlling it, and still winds up piloting it when the ARUS is bringing relief to their module. Senator Figaro realizes this and attempts to kidnap him in episode 4.
** After Saki, also managed to recieve an injection from a Valvrave and survive, it is implied that all the students of the academy are able to survive the injections, and are viable pilots.
* CannotSpitItOut: Towards Shoko. Even after it turns out that she's alive in episode two. However, it seems to be justified. Haruto has no idea what he's become, and is convinced that he is a monster. He says that monsters can't have feelings, but it's really because he's afraid of what might happen to Shoko if he got too close to her.
* ChildhoodFriends: With Shoko.
* CluelessChickMagnet: He seems to have no clue that Shoko, Saki, Takahi and Aina are all trying to get into his pants. The only one of those he seems to have any clue about is Saki, although he's guilt-ridden about his possessed body raping her.
* DeathSeeker: Haruto comes to realize in Episode 22 that he is already dying because of the damage done to his Limiter, and instead of despairing over it, he decides instead that he wants to leave as big a mark on history as he possibly can before he will eventually die.
* DespairEventHorizon: While all the cutie breaking did a real number on his sanity, what really plunges him into this is Inuzuka's death, and he only sinks deeper after learning that he killed Shoko's dad from L-Elf. They manage to pull each other out of it by forging a pact to fulfill Lieselotte's dream; To create a haven where Magius and humans can coexist.
* {{Determinator}}: His actual personality. The multiple times he's been in peril, he's been able to come out those just by [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge rampaging out and making sure he succeeds]]. Even his conscience when nearing death in Episode 22 is also telling him to keep going.
* DistressedDude: Winds up kidnapped and held captive by Senator Figaro and his soldiers in episode 4.
* TheDragon: L-Elf seems hellbent on forcing him to become this in his efforts to liberate Dorssia, as Haruto can potentially speed up his plans by as much as five years. As of episode eight, he's technically accepted.
* EmergencyTransformation: Became what appears to be an immortal vampire after accepting Valvrave's contract. He only accepted because he was about to be killed by soldiers from Dorssia.
* EyeScream: Suffers this in Episode 14 due to the control system for a new weapon attachment blowing up in his face. Thanks to his HealingFactor, it doesn't stick.
* FamedInStory: After everyone finds out that he's the pilot in episode one.
* FirstEpisodeResurrection: In the first episode, after accepting the Valvrave's contract and exiting the mecha, he is brutally stabbed by L-Elf, then shot at point blank range a few times for good measure. Then he simply gets up, and bites the latter...
* GoodIsNotSoft: He has no qualms killing Dorssians and has the highest known kill count besides maybe L-Elf.
* GrandTheftMe: One of the powers that contracting with Valvrave seems to have given him. Unique in that his own body actually goes into a coma of sorts whenever he possesses someone else, rather than joining his mind or dying. He uses it to steal L-Elf's body in episode 2, and is able to instantly use L-Elf's gunslinging abilities while in his body.
* HealingFactor: Appears to have gotten one after being turned by the Valvrave, which includes healing his arm and the two shots and stab wound he received from L-Elf, as well as getting riddled with bullets by Cain in episode 12 and an EyeScream in Episode 14.
** GoodThingYouCanHeal
* TheHero: Fights to protect his homeland and the people he loves, and vows to bring an end to the war.
%%** TheHeroDies
** HeroesPreferSwords: Pilots the only Valvrave with swords.
** RedIsHeroic: The color of his Valvrave and his pilot suits.
* HeroicSacrifice: He uses up all of his runes in the final battle and spends his last moments wondering who he was while L-Elf desperately tries to get him to remember. It's implied that in his very last moment, he did remember.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: After accepting L-Elf's offers to join him, they become this, right down to being roommates.
* HurtingHero: He feels really guilty about the whole rape incident.
* IAmAMonster: States this as tears stream down his face at the end of episode two. He increasingly feels this way as he finds himself unable to stop himself from attacking people, and understandably goes through a near-nervous breakdown after finding out that he ''raped Saki'' when he lost control. At the start of season two, he's even started to spend all possible hours locked up to make sure he doesn't hurt anyone.
* IHateYouVampireDad: While initially having high hopes of reuniting with his father, after realizing just how twisted his father and his project truly was, he punches him in the face and gives him a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech before walking away.
* InnocentBlueEyes: Despite everything that's happened, he remains fairly naive in his view of things, as opposed to the very pragmatic L-Elf.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: One of Haruto's goals in the second season is to find a way to become human again.
* InSeriesNickname: "The Boy Who Fought the World", it isn't used much, but that's probably because the only people who talk to him are people that know him personally and his enemies. Gets brought up in episode 18, though,
* JumpedAtTheCall: Was eager to fight, since it meant avenging Shoko.
* LivingBattery: He and the Runes he absorb are the power source for all the Valvraves.
* MinorInjuryOverreaction: Involuntary reaction from him in episode 3. Where after giving himself a small cut that healed he went into vampire mode and tried to bite his friend.
%%* NiceGuy
%%* NotQuiteDead
* NotSoDifferent: An oddly positive example and the rare variant in which TheHero realizes this. At the end of episode seven, he learns of the one person L-Elf deeply cares about and presumably the reason he fights, whom he calls "Licht," or "light." Because of this, Haruto realizes that L-Elf only wants to protect the person he loves, just like Haruto does for all of his friends. This convinces him to accept L-Elf's offer to join him.
** Haruto actually reminds L-Elf of Lieselotte since the beginning. Haruto also sees himself reflected in her plight when they talked.
* OhCrap: Reacts this way multiple times during the end of Season I and during episode 13 first is when Cain activates Valvrave unit 2, then when Cain uses it with the Light of Rune as its regenerating limbs to [[CurbStompBattle beat the living daylights out of him.]]
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Even after he becomes a Valvrave pilot, he mostly keeps his normal childish outlook. Initially.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: The Harikiri Blade can cut through entire fleets at a time.
* PowerTattoo: Haruto's Magius mark is located on his left collarbone.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Planned on killing every single Dorssian that invaded for the death of Shoko. Then he finds out she's alive.
* SecondYearProtagonist: Not too young, but still a child in some respects.
* ShadowArchetype: To L-Elf. See main page for more details.
* ShrinkingViolet: A downplayed male example. Haruto would rather spend his life as a OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent than be a Valvrave pilot.
* TookALevelInBadass: A subtle one, but by episode 8, he has become noticeably more skilled at piloting the Valvrave than in the earlier episodes.
* WackyMarriageProposal: Proposes to Saki in the middle of a battle in episode 11.
* WideEyedIdealist: He strongly believes that Module 77 can fight a war against Dorssia without suffering any casualties. He also believes that he can save Liselotte without even knowing her current situation.

[[folder:Saki Rukino]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/HarukaTomatsu


One of Haruto's schoolmates. She was once a famous idol (singer), and adapts to fighting against the Dorssians rather quickly. She's very accepting of Haruto's new abilities, as displayed by her affections for him. She seemingly doesn't care about the potential dangers getting romantically close to him may pose. She came to Sakimori after having quit being an idol, but she will sing for her friends' sake. Despite her apparent retirement, she does have a strong passion for becoming famous enough to "carve her existence into the world."

As of season two, her notoriety as one of the Jioran Valvrave pilots has caused her music to soar to the tops of the charts.
* AbusiveParents: As shown in the ''Ryuusei no Otome'' SpinOff manga, her parents were ''horrible''. Her father is heavily implied to have sold her off to the VVV Project, and seemingly has her contract with the company she works for terminated so she could be sent to Module 77.
* ActionGirl: The pilot of Valvrave Unit-04 "Carmilla".
* AdultsAreUseless: Strongly believes in this. When her friends suggest revealing the strange changes that Haruto goes through after having piloted the Valvrave, she's immediately opposed to it. She says that adults "cheat" and that he might wind up as a lab rat. Turns out she was right. A little ''[[AcademyOfAdventure too'' right.]]
* ActionSurvivor: Winds up being key to Haruto's success in episode two.
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: Holds herself at a distance from the other students, at least until the war gets underway.
* AttentionWhore: Her reason to pilot her Valvrave and give up her humanity was so that she could be in the spotlight. The true reason she wants to be famous is so that she never has to fear returning to her abusive family, which further takes her away for the usual definition of this trope. Actually manages to turn this into a ''virtue'' - she draws her HeroicWillpower from [=NicoNico=] comment streams.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: She cares about Aina a lot more than normal because Aina was amongst the few people to not treat her differently for her idol status.
* BigDamnHeroes:
** After being freed by A-Drei, she sprints to the Moon in her Valvrave and manages to save Haruto and L-Elf from a squad of Waffe.
** Saves the remaining Valvraves and the shuttles they protect from being overwhelmed by the Allied Forces in the very next episode.
* BodySnatcher: Has the same power as Haruto, but unlike him she has also impersonated her victims. Interestingly, both were male.
* BreakTheCutie: This happened before the show even started, and then got worse. Especially in episode 10, where she comes to realize that the Kamitsuki condition is a curse.
%%* BrokenBird
* ClingyJealousGirl: Amusingly enough, while she accuses Shoko of being one earlier on, it is quite obvious that Saki ultimately fits the trope far better. In episode 10 she tries to thwart Haruto's attempt to get closer to Shoko by saying a love that's one way wouldn't last very long, and that a relationship between him and a regular human like Shoko would never work out. Subverted when she later rejects Haruto's marriage proposal and sends him to save Shoko.
* CompressedHair: Every time she wears her whole pilot suit.
* TheConstant: In the FlashForward[=s=] of both seasons.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: A part of her new uniform for the Earth mission.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: While at first it seems like she fibbed about this in order to get close enough to Haruto in order to steal his body, it's revealed that she was abused as a child and was actually bullied by her idol seniors and ''fired'' by her bosses.
* DefiantCaptive: Despite the fact that she is mercilessly tortured on international television and kept under maximum security, she doesn't give out any information (minus the use of her regeneration to demonstrate her inhumanity to the world) and [[DamselOutOfDistress ultimately escapes from the same maximum security with a bit of help from A-Drei.]]
* DefrostingIceQueen: Warms up to Aina, Haruto and Akira. The FlashForward[=s=] show her completely "defrosted".
* DistressedDamsel: She is captured by A-Drei in Episode 17 and becomes a prisoner of the Dorssian military.
%%* EveryGirlIsCuterWithHairDecs
* FamedInStory: It is mentioned in the first episode that she was a popular idol. This is revealed to actually be her greatest ambition, to become so famous that she can "carve her existence onto the face of the world".
* {{Foil}}: Her actions in episode 6 have some interesting parallels with Haruto's actions in the first episode. Namely, she makes a calculated choice to pilot a Valvrave, as opposed to his which was driven by rage and the desire for vengeance. Likewise, she seems fine with losing her humanity while it is a source of much angst for him. And while Haruto's later fights see him acting more on thought than raw emotion, her second battle after recovering from her FreakOut is driven by her personal emotions and desire for fame and immortality.
* FreudianExcuse: The reason she doesn't trust adults is she was abused as a child and fired from being an idol by her bosses.
* FutureBadass: ''Two-hundred years'' after the end of the series, Saki is still around and better than ever at using her Valvrave.
* GenreSavvy:
** Figures out how the body switching works and explains her logic with "That's how it works in movies."
** She also points out that sending Haruto to the ARUS doctors to find out what his condition is would only make him their lab rat.
* HealingFactor: Recovers within a few minutes being shot through the heart.
* HiddenBuxom: Emphasized in the manga, where it's shown that she already had a generous rack at age 13.
%%* HimeCut
* HurricaneOfPuns: She loves using performance metaphors and puns during battles.
* ICallItVera: Starts calling her Valvrave {{Literature/Carmilla}}.
%%* IceQueen
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Her main motivation to becoming an idol was so she could get away from her abusive parents.
* ILied: She constantly subverts it. Every time in the series where she claims that she was lying, it is actually shown that she was telling the truth, whether it be about her abusive childhood, or the existence of her feelings for Haruto. Aina ''very'' pointedly notes at one point that Saki is actually an extremely honest person.
* {{Immortality}}: We see her fighting an unknown enemy at the beginning of episode 7, more than ''two hundred years'' after the current events of the story, and she doesn't seem to have aged a day.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: On international television and in front of all the Sakimori students and the ARUS politicians, courtesy of Cain, to show that she is immortal. This causes the Arus President to FreakOut.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Jumps at the chance to become the second Valvrave pilot, unconcerned with losing her humanity.
* LeeroyJenkins: Initially, she is very reckless once she becomes a Valvrave pilot. She gets better.
* MsFanservice: She's a rather generously proportioned TeenIdol who frequently teases Haruto. Emphasized more in the ''Ryuusei no Otome'' manga.
* NervesOfSteel: Remains both calm and defiant when held at gunpoint by L-Elf. Later subverted when when she starts fighting the Karlstein Institut graduates in episode 6, and completely freezes up in fear.
* NonuniformUniform: The only student who wears boots.
* PluckyGirl: Despite all the hardships she goes through, including being raped in part one, and left behind, held captive, and impaled in part 2, she remains optimistic and never breaks down, instead coming out stronger.
* PowerTattoo: She has a Magius mark on her left thigh.
* ThePromise: Forms one with Haruto in episode five to keep the fact that there are other Valvraves a secret. She seals the deal with a kiss.
* RapeAsDrama: She gets raped by Haruto during a particularly bad Magius flip-out in episode 10. Interestingly, Haruto takes it worse than Saki does, and in Episode 13 she actually offers them having sex to help Haruto get better, though he stops her. The Spinoff manga ''Ryuusei no Otome'' reveals that Saki saw them sharing the "curse of the Valvraves" as a kind of tight-knit bond.
* RapunzelHair: Waist-length.
* RealityEnsues: For her in episode 6, as soon as she starts fighting the Karlstein Institut graduates, she gets completely out matched and all thoughts of being a immortal are pretty much shattered.
* RingsOfDeath: Her Valvrave weapons, the chakram-like Spindle Knuckles.
* SavedByCanon: Episode 7 confirms that 200 years after the series, Saki is still alive and kicking ass in her Valvrave.
* ShamelessSelfPromoter: She advertises herself as Haruto's sister in order to be "related to a celebrity." As of Season two, she took advantage of her notoriety as a Valvrave pilot to sell her songs, which turned out to be an effective move.
* ShesGotLegs: Her new uniform for the Earth mission prominently displays her legs.
%%* SugarAndIcePersonality
%%* TheTease
* TearsOfJoy: Upon finding Haruto and L-Elf unharmed on the moon.
%%* VampireVannabe
* YoungerThanTheyLook: A mild example: She is the youngest Valvrave pilot and one of the youngest cast members[[note]]only Q-Vier and maybe Aina are younger[[/note]], but looks and (tries to) act older. Inverted in the FlashForward[=s=].
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A in S1.

[[folder:Kyuma Inuzuka]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/YukiOno


Another one of Haruto's classmates. He's very good with motorcycles, and is known for hanging out with a lot of girls. He's killed off rescuing Haruto and L-Elf after ARUS betrays the inhabitants of Module 77.
* AchillesHeel: His Valvrave's main weakness is that his back is left incredibly vulnerable when making use of its incredibly powerful shields and arsenal.
* BarrierWarrior: His Valvrave comes with an incredibly powerful shield.
* BashBrothers: With Raizou, although they fight frequently due to their contrasting personalities, their team work is impeccable.
* TheBigGuy: In Haruto's FiveManBand.
* BlueOni: To Raizou's red.
* BromanticFoil: Becomes this to Haruto, particularly in Season 2.
* TheCasanova: He apparently hung out with a lot of girls. Aina was the only one he really loved..
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: Taken UpToEleven, he manages to solo three [[HeroKiller Kirschbaums and save Haruto without any of his shields.]]
* FaceDeathWithDignity: Fought to the end while maintaining his composure.
* FreakOut: Has one in episode 7, after seeing Aina's mangled corpse.
* ICallItVera: He names his Valvrave unit "Beast High" because he's being paid for it.
* InstantExpert: At piloting helicopters. [[DrivesLikeCrazy Maybe]].
* JumpedAtTheCall: Like Raizo, he doesn't hesitate for too long once he makes up his mind to become a Valvrave pilot.
* KilledOffForReal: His Valvrave and his body are both completely vaporized by the explosion caused by his attack on the final Kirschbaum.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: His Valvrave is equipped with two gigantic shields that are nearly unbreakable. The only thing that has been able to harm them to date is The Kirschbaum Units's Löwenglitzen.
* MoneyFetish: His goal in life is to get money and he winds up handling the donations for the student after they declare independence.
** Soon after his first battle, he talks about making Shoko's desert into a mass produced souvenir from visitors to Module 77 and he is later made the Minister of Finance.
* NiceGuy: He's a pretty cool fellow.
* NonuniformUniform: He never wears the school blazer or tie.
* RasputinianDeath: His Valvrave is slowly blown apart piece by piece and a shot to his cockpit completely snaps his arm, but it takes it being bisected and him self-destructing in an absolutely huge explosion before he finally bites the bullet.
* SelfDestructiveCharge: During the escape from Module 77, his Valvrave is completely torn apart, concluding with it being blown clean in half as he charges a Kirschbaum before he vaporizes them both by exploding his cockpit.
* ShipperOnDeck: For Haruto and Shoko. The last thing he asks before he charges the Kirschbaums is whether not Haruto loves Shoko.
* TakingYouWithMe: As his Valvrave is blown apart by the last Kirschbaum's Löwenglitzen, him and his cockpit rams the mech and detonates, causing a massive explosion the size of Module 77.
* WhatTheFuAreYouDoing: Took Haruto's place as the pilot of the helicopter in episode 2 because he's good at driving motorcycles. He quickly realizes that the controls are very different and nearly crashes.
* WhatTheHellHero: Gives a well-deserved one to Raizo in episode nine.

[[folder:Raizo "Thunder" Yamada]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/YuuichiNakamura


A gruff, disobedient student at Haruto's school. One of his best friends was killed in the Dorssian attack. He wants revenge, and thinks that he can force Haruto to hand over the Valvrave so he can get it. Later on, it's revealed that, despite his gruff demeanor, he cares deeply for his friends and only wants to keep things going well in the module, and is willing to put his life on the line to do so.
* AscendedFanboy: He eventually becomes the fourth Valvrave pilot.
* AttackAttackAttack: His attitude towards fighting is basically "shoot the enemy until they die." This borders of LeeroyJenkins territory as he usually recklessly heads off to battle opposing Dorssian units, thus making him always the first victim of whatever strategy they have at the moment or the new Kirschbaum units that the Dorrsians have developed by adapting the Valvrave tech. He later gets killed by utilizing this tactic and ignoring defense as his friend Otamaya warned him to.
* BashBrothers: With Kyuma, although they fight frequently due to their contrasting personalities, their team work is impeccable.
* BigDamnHeroes: When Kyuma is about to be taken out, he shows up in his own Valvrave and starts kicking ass.
* TheBully: Safe to assume so.
* ButtMonkey: So far he gets beat up by Dorssian soldiers, knocked out by L-Elf and shot by Senator Figaro
* CovertPervert: He and his posse quickly take advantage of the school being the only people remaining in the module to show some pornos at the theatre and make the best out of it.
* DefiantToTheEnd: While he isn't killed off, he refuses to listen to the Dorssian officers demands that he and the other students hand over their cell phones. Not by virtue of them being an invading enemy force, mind you, but because he feels that he's in charge of the school. He still maintains this attitude after Q-Vier delivers a fatal shot to him in episode 23.
* {{Delinquents}}: Claims to be the boss of his high school.
* DelinquentHair: The bright orange is rather jarring, even when compared to the standards set by the other characters.
%%* FaceOfAThug
* FrickinLaserBeams: His Valvrave has a total of eight arms with laser cannons.
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: Courtesy of Q-Vier's Löwenglitzen.
* HeroicSacrifice: Holds off Q-Vier long enough for Akira to hack the communications satellite of the Dorssians, but when he goes in for the kill on the brat, he gets duped and then eats a Löwenglitzen to the mouth, killing him.
* HotBlooded: As befits a young bully type, he's loud, outspoken, and aggressive.
* ICallItVera: He names his Valvrave "Nobu Lightning" after the friend he lost in the initial Dorssian attack.
* IJustWantToBeBadass: If him trying to take Valvrave from Haruto is anything to go by.
* InSeriesNickname: "Thunder".
* {{Jerkass}}: He tries to threaten Haruto to get him to hand over Valvrave in episode 3, viewing himself as a more fitting pilot for the robot.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's shown briefly mourning at a makeshift grave for his friend who was killed in the attack. Also in episode four, he stands in front of Senator Figaro's escape vehicle.
** In episode five, he completely ignores the pain caused by his reopening bullet wound in order to save Yusuke and help get power back to the module. They're now completely buddies.
** He also later abandons the idea of forcing Haruto to make him the Valvrave's pilot.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Tries to force Haruto to let him take over as the Valvrave's pilot in episode three.
* KilledOffForReal: He gets OutGambitted by Q-Vier and then eats a Löwenglitzen at point blank range, blasting him in half before his Valvrave explodes.
* LeeroyJenkins: The most reckless member of the Valvrave team.
* ManlyTears: Cries as Inuzuka begins his SelfDestructiveCharge.
* PunnyName: 山 (''yama'') is also read "''san''". So Yamada=Sanda=Thunder.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Kyuma's blue.
* RefusedByTheCall: He winds up knocked out by L-Elf about two minutes later.
** He gets his own Valvrave in episode nine, though only after even more failed attempts to get one.
* MuggingTheMonster: See above. He was lucky that he didn't injure Haruto.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: His Valvrave has four arms that can split into more arms.
* {{Revenge}}: He wants to take control of the Valvrave so he can avenge his friend Nobu who was killed in Dorssia's initial attack on Module 77.
* ShirtlessScene: While on the Earthforce ship during Episode 14, much to Takahi's chagrin.
%%* TheyCallMeMisterTibbs

[[folder:Akira Renbokoji]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AoiYuki


A skilled Jioran hacker. She's responsible for revealing Haruto as the Valvrave's pilot to the world via live stream on the internet in episode one. Her motivations are unknown, but her skills are great. Her stream showed up on televisions around the world. Satomi is her older brother. She runs a popular social networking site known as Wired.

She becomes the pilot of the Valvrave VI.
* ActionGirl: As the pilot of Valvrave Unit-06.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Will do anything for Shoko, because she was the first one who treated her as a friend.
* BrokenBird: She used to be a fairly normal kid, until she became the target of bullying. She hacked the school computer to try and get the answers to help Satomi when he was stressing out about tests to the point of getting sick. Unfortunately the police caught wind of it, and when being questioned, he denied any responsibility for it. As a result of being caught by the police, the kids at her school began to bully her, and to make things worse, when she called to her brother for help, he ignored her cries.
* ChildProdigy: At hacking and programming.
* CompressedHair: Every time she wears her whole pilot suit.
* FamedInStory: Although only a few people know who she really is, she carries a reputation of being so good at hacking computers there are rumors circulating around as to the extent of her abilities. One of said rumors is hacking into an established university's website, which is said to be protected by class S security (which she did hack into at a young age in order to get the test questions to help Satomi pass the said university's entrance exams). Yusuke refers to her as "the legendary Little Witch" and one of his friends notes that if all the rumors about her hacking prowess are true, then she must have the skills of a god.
* FreakOut: Has one when Shoko finds her. She has a more comedic one after the power goes out and her computers shut down.
** Has another one when Saki is shot in front of her.
* GracefulInTheirElement: She is pretty awkward when having to deal with people, but give her access to a computer, and she works miracles.
* HackerCave: She hacks into the security cameras and starts the livestream from a small, darkened room seemingly made up of boxes and storage supplies. The floors are strewn with snacks, wires, and keyboards. Even her own Valvrave cockpit is getting this treatment, with some TrashOfTheTitans building up in zero-G.
* HatesBeingTouched: She freaks out whenever she makes physical contact with people because of suffering from horrible bullying during her childhood. She's slowly getting over this thanks to Shoko.
* {{Hikikomori}}: To such a degree that she had a massive FreakOut in episode four when someone found her Hacker room. She also freaks out in episode 11 when Shouko's invitation for her to get out more triggers a FlashBack where something terrible must have happened to her outside in the past, causing her to scream uncontrollably and disconnect her call.
** It's shown she was brutally bullied by her former classmates, with them doing things like cutting her hair, ruining her stuff, and presumably physically beating her up, making her terrified of all human contact, to the point where she'd rather die than leave her little area. But she would leave it to save Shouko, her only friend.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Her first big hack was to figure out the answers to an important entrance exam that was severely stressing out Satomi, to the point where he was studying through a severe fever and losing lots of sleep. Sadly, she nearly ruined his chances of getting into a good school when she was found out.
* NoSocialSkills: When Shoko begins crying in front of her she is immediately flustered and without a clue on what to do to comfort her.
* NotGoodWithPeople: To the point she has a FreakOut when Shoko suggests she comes out and meets everyone in episode 11.
* OnlyFriend: Considers Shoko this. Shoko has so much influence in her that she is shown eating snacks (like wafer bars with pickles) that Shoko likes.
* PlayfulHacker: She hacked into the security cameras around the school and streamed the Valvrave's first fight online live. Her skills are so great that her website, Wired, is known for being incredibly difficult to hack.
** Later, she gets the Valvrave VI, which has a [[VisualPun pick-like weapon]] that [[DoubleEntendre hacks]] enemy machinery.
* ThePromise: Makes one with Shoko as to not reveal where she is on campus.
%%* RapunzelHair
* ShrinkingViolet: How she acts outside her "home".
* UnkemptBeauty: She spends most of her time inside her HackerCave, and does not seem to care much about how she looks like. She still looks quite the beauty, comparable to [[TeenIdol Saki]] and [[{{Ojou}} Takahi]].
* TheVoiceless: She doesn't speak for most of the series aside from some thoughts in her head and some screaming. When she does try in episode 11, the sound of other people talking to her on Shouko's phone causes her to freak out and cut the connection.

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AsamiSeto


A close friend of Haruto's. She's very energetic and cares deeply for others. When it seems like she's killed by a stray laser blast in episode one, it turns out that she survived by ducking into the car of the person she tried to help. She is also the Jioran prime minister's daughter, and has seemingly inherited a healthy amount of leadership skills as a result. She also has a habit of repeatedly gripping her skirt and letting go of it when she's thinking.

As of season two, she's settled into her role as a diplomat and a leader and has become a much more mature, level-headed person. Witnessing your father's last moments will do this to you.

Position: Prime Minister.

The epilogue reveals that she takes Haruto's place as Unit 01's pilot after his death and becomes a Kamitsuki.
* AlliterativeName: '''S'''hoko '''S'''ashinami.
* BettyAndVeronica: The Betty to Saki's Veronica.
* BreakTheCutie: In episode 11, she's forced to watch a Dorssian officer condemn her father to death in a military tribunal. While her father tries to reassure her not to worry about him and to think of the future, the ship they're on gets destroyed by Haruto's LimitBreak attack, along with about three quarters of the attacking Dorssian forces. She [[CryCute breaks down in tears at being unable to do anything to save him.]]
* CannotSpitItOut: She seems to have mutual feelings for Haruto, but she [[{{Tsundere}} won't admit it.]] As of Season two, she apparently did not confess to Haruto because she did not want to let him know that her father died together with the Dorssian fleet that Haruto destroyed during season 1. Later, her mistrust of him after she finds out he's a Kamitsuki caused some tensions between them, although Pino told her later the reason he did that was to avenge her in episode 1.
* ChildhoodFriends: With Haruto. She knows him so well that she realizes that the posts Saki makes when in control of Haruto's body were not actually made by Haruto, simply based upon his personality. However, since she doesn't know about the body swapping powers that come with being a Valvrave pilot, or the fact that Saki was even a pilot at that point, she assumes that a hacker was at fault.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Shoko's thought processes are not ordinary thought processes. As Saki bluntly puts it, "Do you have brain problems?".
* DisappearedDad: Her father, the Prime Minister of JIOR, is revealed to be missing and many fear that he has been assassinated by Dorssia. He turns up alive in a Dorssian KangarooCourt situation but is later killed in an explosion caused by Haruto's Harikiri Blade.
%%* EveryGirlIsCuterWithHairDecs
* FamedInStory: She's the daughter of the prime minister of JIOR. However, she doesn't take advantage of this in order to be popular. She's well liked by most of the students in the school because she helps them out in various ways. Then she gets elected as the Prime Minister of New JIOR.
* {{Foil}}: To Haruto. Enough to make a point that ''everyone'' notices how alike they are.
* TheFool: An odd mixture of this and GuileHeroine. Her... unique approach to problem solving shouldn't work in any sane, rational universe, but it does. It does very well. Right up until Episode 21.
* GenkiGirl: One of the defining traits of her personality. Despite being caught in a war zone, she still acts silly and optimistic. She seems to lose this part of herself after witnessing the death of her father.
* GuileHeroine: Manages get ARUS to fully cooperate by threatening to give the Valrave to Dorssia and plans on doing the same thing to Dorssia.
* TheHeart: Especially evident in episode 6 when her cheers helps Saki get over her fears and defeat the enemy.
* HotBlooded: Is very outspoken and head-strong.
* IdiotBall: Shoko willing handed Haruto and L-Elf to the ARUS military in exchange for their safety, despite the fact that they had already killed most of the students. [[KillEmAll This almost cost them their lives]], [[ILied as ARUS wasn't planning on honoring their part of the deal]] and the Valvrave pilots were in the process of defending them. It's worse when you consider that ARUS had tried kidnapping Haruto once before with Figaro and that if Haruto is captured or killed, all the Valvraves will cease functioning and they lose their only means of defense.
** In addition, she was standing ''right next to the ARUS president'' when he basically confessed to framing the students in Module 77 by shouting "I thought we sealed up the docking bay!" when Akira pulled a BigDamnHeroes moment saving her from the ARUS military, but still bought in to the BandwagonFallacy that the Valvrave pilots are all man-eating monsters because the vast majority of Arus says they are.
** IdiotHoudini: Shoko never suffered any consequences except her MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment courtesy of Pino, although she winds up being the pilot of Valvrave 01, and we all know ''that's'' not pleasant.
* ItRunsInTheFamily: She winds up becoming an inspirational leader to her classmates in episode 4. It turns out she's the Jioran prime minister's daughter.
* LargeHam: [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} And we]] [[GenkiGirl wouldn't have]] [[ManicPixieDreamGirl her any other way.]]
* TheLeader: She's the de-facto leader of Sakamori High School after they declare independence. She officially becomes New JIOR's Prime Minister in episode 10. She is type IV.
* LethalChef: Subverted. Despite how horrible-looking the vegetable stew she makes in episode 7 is, it actually tastes good!
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: She's the only person in Haruto's group of friends that doesn't know about the whole Valvrave curse. Until Episode 19.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: She's clearly unsatisfied with her condemnation of the Third-generation Magius, and after being shown by Pino that Haruto become a Magius for her sake, she breaks down in tears realizing just how horribly wrong she was.
* NeverFoundTheBody[=/=]NotQuiteDead: Episode 2 reveals that she managed to get in the car of the person she tried to help before the blast.
* NiceGirl: She's very friendly, energetic, and selfless. She's also very dedicated to keeping promises.
* NoodleIncident: It's mentioned once that Haruto and Shoko ran away together as children, but it is never fully explained nor brought up again. When Haruto's memory of this is destroyed by the Valvrave, and Shoko questions him about it when she finds out about his {{Immortality}} and he cannot recall it, she truly believes that he has become a monster.
* OnlyFriend: Of Akira in S1.
* ParentalAbandonment: She witnesses her father's last moments in episode eleven, and it leaves her heartbroken.
* PluckyGirl: Has a lot of courage and will power for being a highschooler during a dreadful war.
* ThePromise: Unintentionally makes one with Akira as to not reveal her location to anyone.

%%* SecondYearProtagonist
* SpannerInTheWorks: Inadvertently throws a monkey wrench into L-Elf's plans to force Haruto to join him in episode 4.
* ShortTank: Evident in the first episode. She beats Haruto in an eating contest, she gets mad on Haruto's behalf, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking she wears weird t-shirts...]]
* StepfordSmiler: She's quite good at hiding her sadness, even from her ChildhoodFriend.
* StuffedInTheFridge: Fits the role in the first episode, but then she turns up alive in the second.
* SupremeChef: Her cooking may ''look'' bad at times, but she's actually an amazing cook, and is very knowledgeable in traditional cooking. Her cooking is good enough to even get L-Elf off his game!
** CordonBleughChef: She cooks (or makes food) by throwing random stuff that the resulting dish ends up looking like it could kill anyone who eats it. Subverted because her cooking is absolutely delicious.
* TakeAThirdOption: In episode four, she inadvertently gives one to Haruto, who pretty much only had two viable options once he and the others find out that their module is the only area of Jior not occupied by Dorssia and that their families very well may be used against them: surrender or work with L-Elf to bring revolution to Dorssia. She suggests that they use the Valvrave as collateral.
* TakingUpTheMantle: She becomes Unit 01's pilot after Haruto dies.

[[folder:Marie Nobi]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MisatoFukuen


A somewhat aloof student at Sakimori. She's friends with Shoko, and doesn't seem to care much about appearances. It turns out she's an amnesiac, and can only remember the previous two years of her life. Five years ago, she was apparently a friend of Pino, according to the latter before she became the Valvrave AI.

As revealed in episode 16, Marie was the test pilot for the Valvrave system, and Unit 1's (Haruto's) test pilot, which is how Pino came to know her and befriend her, as both were lonely people. Her amnesia was caused by Pino absorbing the Runes from her memory. As to how this hasn't happened to Haruto, Pino says that Marie's "Limiter" is broken. Exactly what a Limiter is hasn't been explained yet, but according to Pino, Marie's lack of a functional one means she loses too many Runes piloting the Valvrave, which is why she was abandoned as a test pilot. This is demonstrated when merely ''touching'' the Valvrave caused Marie to lose her very first memory. In the end, Marie chooses to pilot the Valvrave once more to save her friends from being killed by the Dorssians, losing her memories as the fight progresses, until the use of the Harakiri Sword ends in what is for all intents and purposes her death, as she is now an empty shell.

Position: Minister of Internal Affairs. now deceased
* BlessedWithSuck: Her lack of a "Limiter" means she can feed a lot of power to the Valvrave and increase its specs considerably, but it comes at the price of her memories. This is what got her fired and abandoned by the research team in the first place.
* BoomHeadshot: Suffers a painful looking headshot from L-Elf in Episode 15. To everyone's shock, she gets right back up.
%%* BridgeBunny
* CastFromHitPoints: She can power up and utilize Unit-01 in ways Haruto cannot do yet, but due to her lack of a "Limiter" this comes at the cost of her memories. Her first and only battle in episode 16 has her singlehandedly destroying the Dorssian units that were after them while her memories disappear one by one. By the end of the episode, she had lost so much memories that her mind is effectively too broken to function, leading to her death.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: If the impression she gives in episode one is to be believed. Considering she has ''amnesia'', this makes this trope interesting.
** In episode five she walks around the city barefoot and in her school swimsuit.
* CovertPervert: Randomly reaches up and starts groping her teacher in episode one. In episode five, she also manages to get some pictures of Shoko when playing in the sprinklers--with her white uniform wet and see-through.
* DissonantSerenity: How the now-memoryless Marie comes off when talking with Haruto for the last time, expressing subdued and somewhat dull elation at learning that the "old" Marie had such dear friends.
* FlawedPrototype: Was the first test subject of the VVV project.
* GlassCannon: She can pilot Unit 1 even better than Haruto, and pull off things that he (still) can't do, but at the cost of feeding it so many Runes that she loses memories just by being in contact with the Valvrave.
* HealingFactor: Not 30 seconds after L-Elf shoots her in the forehead, she is standing back up.
** Hers seems to be more extreme than Haruto's and the others as Saki is still on the ground unable to move minutes after being shot through the heart while she's already on her feet. For a small background, a person can live for several minutes before dying if shot in the heart, while a headshot is a ''guaranteed'' kill since all the oxygen filters through there.
* HeroicRROD: She kept pushing herself to pilot Unit-01 to protect her friends while her memories get erased one after another. The Harakiri Blade finally takes the last semblance of mental functions for Marie which leads to her death.
* HeroicSacrifice: She loses so many Runes piloting the Valvrave that ending the battle with the Harakiri Sword kills her as well. For anyone doubting her death, Pino herself bids her goodbye as the episode ends.
* IdentityAmnesia: She only knows her name, but not anything else. Episode 15 shows that she is somehow connected to Pino and was apparently friends with her before her amnesia, and has the {{immortality}} that the other Magius have.
** Finally revealed in episode 16. Marie was the test pilot of Unit 1, which is how Pino befriended her.
* InstantExpert: Surprisingly, despite not having any memories beyond the last two years of her life, she pilots Unit 01 rather well, and perhaps even better than Haruto. Unfortunately, this came at a cost to her memories.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: She can only remember the past two years of her life.
** It was caused by Pino consuming her Runes. And she loses even what little memories she had by the end of episode 16, not to mention her life.
* MysteriousWaif: She can't remember anything beyond the last two years while she was in high school. Pino explains that she was a test pilot for her, but her limiter was broken, so she couldn't be used anymore, and Pino "ate" her memories to power up the Valvrave.
* OlderThanTheyLook: She was in the same class as Haruto and Shoko, but her body is rather small (144 cm) and underdeveloped.
* NotGrowingUpSucks: It is hinted that her immortality caused the end of her growth.
* ShipperOnDeck: For Haruto and Shoko.
* WalkingSpoiler: Who knew that an apparently minor character at first would have this much depth?

* SuicidalOverconfidence: Attempts to pull one against the invading Dorssians in episode eleven, toting a giant wrench for good measure, and his attitude in the situation implies that he wasn't making a suicide charge. Takumi wisely stops him.
* TeenGenius: ''Incredibly'' good with machines. Takumi even points out that he has the potential to be one of the greats.

A student at Haruto's high school who initially doesn't know him personally. He scoffs at the eating contest in episode one, calling it uncivilized. He's the StudentCouncilPresident at his high school, an avid supporter of the ARUS, and big brother to Akira. He's displayed an impressive level of maturity and foresight for his age, as after their module declares independence he's among the few people who try to maintain its systems and keep everything up and running.

Position: Chief Cabinet Secretary.

The epilogue reveals that he marries Takahi and becomes a Kamitsuki.
* AbusiveParents: His parents were extremely forceful in their attempts to get him into a high-class school.
* AwesomeByAnalysis: In episode 14, he is able to help direct their ship close enough to rescue Akira after she sends him hacked communications transmissions. No one else was able to make out anything from the garbled messages.
* BigBrotherInstinct: He's Akira's older brother, and implores her to hurry up and evacuate in episode three.
** Later he sucks up his pride and asks Shoko to save Akira despite his previous humiliating defeat by her.
%%* {{Bishounen}}
* ButtMonkey: Poor kid ''really'' can't catch a break.
* HappilyMarried: He marries Takahi in the epilogue.
* HeroicBSOD: He has a minor one when he sees someone besides himself with Akira. He suffers another brief one in episode 14 after Akira is too far away to get rescued despite Haruto's attempts.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Akira views him as this, saying he did not stand up for her despite his claims of being concerned for her well being. This stems from the fact that he refused to be associated with her hacking the university he was studying for despite knowing she did it out of concern for his well being, as well as turning a blind eye and ear to her cries for help when she was bullied. Though this has lessened by episode 14.
* IgnoreTheFanservice: He is more than willing to breech his principles if it means stopping Shoko from stripping in front of everyone. ItMakesSenseInContext. He also looks away when [[HotTeacher Rion]] winds up showing some cleavage in an attempt to cool off.
* TheManBehindTheMan: A positive variant. While Rion and Shoko become the faces of Module 77's leadership, he works towards keeping things running in their home colony on a technical and diplomatic level behind the scenes. In other words, he's going a lot of the real work.
* MyGreatestFailure: Not preventing the severe bullying his little sister went through. He finally starts making amends for this in episode 14, when he risks the ship he's on to rescue her.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: He accidently causes a situation in episode 14 that causes the Earthspace group to derail so far from their intended landing spot in JIOR that they ended ''near the Dorssian capitol.''
* NonActionGuy: For the most part. He did attempt to board Haruto's Valvrave in season 2 after L-Elf suggested it, claiming Haruto would be incapable of piloting due to some mental problems, but is held back by the other students long enough for Haruto to overcome his doubts.
* OnlySaneMan: Tries to be this for the student body.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: He's amongst the few people who actually work to keep the module up and running after they declare independence.
* RichKids: Heavily implied by his attitude towards the EatingContest.
* SavedByCanon: For currently unexplained reasons, he is alive far in the future of the series teaching the young white-haired Prince together with Saki.
* StudentCouncilPresident: Not that it means much after the fall of Jior
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: Played with. He does act and think like a teenager, just a particularly mature and realistic one.

She's also one of the few people who treats Saki normally despite how Saki is supposed to be a popular idol. This is part of the reason why Saki cares for her so much. She thinks of Haruto when he's possessing people's bodies as a holy spirit and believes that the changes he underwent as a result of piloting the Valvrave as God having visited him.

* LightIsNotGood: They wear white and gold uniforms, and are {{Bishonen}}s. They are also among the antagonists in the series.
* MyGreatestFailure: There was a sixth unnamed member of the Graduate squad during their training who turned out to have connections to the Royalist faction, and they had to personally execute him. All of them still have regrets about this.
* PunchClockVillain: The graduates are frequently shown to be fundamentally good people off-duty.
* ThemeNaming: Their names [[NumericalThemeNaming consist of a letter and a number]] and they use the institute's name as their surname. It is later revealed by L-Elf that [[YouAreNumberSix the institute replaces a child's real name with the Letter-Number naming system upon admittance.]]
* TrainingFromHell: Implied. Children are trained to be ruthless and efficient in killing (as well as be skilled in other things like survival, espionage, and piloting mechs). They are also conditioned to show only loyalty to the Dorssian cause and values, thus are also ordered to kill deserters, traitors, and those that cannot endure the program. Graduates of the institute are considered elite soldiers by the Dorssian military.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Dorssia. Two random soldiers even discuss the fact that no Graduate to date has ever betrayed Dorssia. L-Elf and H-Neun are now the exception, though the latter didn't get to defect before he was killed.
** YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters: The former plans a coup d'etat, apparently in favor of Lieselotte, the princess of Dorssia. The latter feels the need to confront Cain whose actions are highly suspicious. Both can be considered loyal to Dorssia, but not to certain elements within its government - and said elements are both (as of Episode 13) covertly overtaken by an outside force, The Council of 101.
* VillainousFriendship: All of them (with maybe one or two exceptions) are close friends who enjoy each others' company, even when off duty.
* VillainsOutShopping: When the Graduates are off-duty, they take joy in the simple things in life like [[BadGuysPlayPool pool]], [[UsefulNotes/EquestrianSports horse riding]], talking to girls about movies and other such activities.
* TheWorfEffect: L-Elf manages to out-gambit and beat his fellow graduates time and again, despite their competence. They get better in season two.

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


A ruthless agent working for Dorssia. He has no qualms about killing anyone who gets in his way, innocent or not. He convinces Haruto of the naiveté of his views on competition. He later attempts to murder Haruto and hijack the Valvrave, only for Haruto to ''get back up'' and steal his body for a time, then using L-Elf's natural skills to get his friends to safety and steal back both his original body and the Valvrave. L-Elf is then forced to work with Haruto and co to survive. However he later asks Haruto to help him liberate his country, revealing he wanted to rebel against his country from the start. He's chosen Haruto to serve as his right hand in his revolution and has become the first official refugee to New Jior. His most prominent character trait is that he is a very skilled tactician and predictor.

In the middle of season two, Liselotte dies, causing him to fall into a severe HeroicBSOD, but he eventually resolves to ensure that her sacrifice was not in vain and forms a mutual promise with Haruto to "unveil the world" by bringing down those who were ultimately responsible for her death: The Council of 101.

He allows Haruto to use his body for the final battle due to his superior physical capabilities. This gives Haruto the edge he needs to defeat Cain, but Haruto still uses up all of his Runes during the final battle. The last thing Haruto ever hears is L-Elf's admission that he thought of him as a true friend.
* TheAce: He is a skilled fighter, but also an expert strategist. He is shown to be able to predict what actions people will take and manipulate them accordingly. He seems to always have a victory plan for every situation.
* AcePilot: He shows remarkable skill in even a basic JIOR fighter, outmaneuvering even the {{Ace Custom}}s of the other Karlstein graduates. [[{{Troll}} While critiquing their piloting abilities.]]
* AllForNothing: All his efforts to rescue Lisolette literally go up in flames when she falls out of the escape rocket and the second stage blows up right behind her.
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: In the eyes of L-Elf, Lieselotte > the entire universe.
* AntiHero: Of the UnscrupulousHero type, edging dangerously close to NominalHero territory. Until episode 15, when he shoots Marie in the head for slowing down his plan and almost finding out about the Kamitsuki. It pretty much confirms his status as a NominalHero.
** He fully becomes an AntiHero at the end.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: His most defining skill is to be able to make strategies, find hidden objects, and figure out what the opposition will do based only on subtle clues or his extensive knowledge of military information and tactics. The first demonstration of this is his deduction of where their targets in the school are located based solely on the structure of the school building and the placements of the sprinklers.
* BadassBiker: Shows a high level of competence with a bike in Episode 19.
* BashBrothers: With A-Drei and X-Eins as of Episode 23.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Liselotte shared her life with him, even though he was a prisoner, and he's dedicated his life to finding a way to protect her.
* BeneathTheMask: Debatable. He carries himself this way, however he participates in the New JIOR government election when he doesn't have to or their school festival (insisting Haruto should join him in his stand) when these are useless to his plans. He tolerated Haruto when he didn't have to, as well. Saki could have been expendable, but left her a letter and her Valvrave. He keeps insisting Haruto was this and that A-drei is now useful and that's why he is helping him in the CD drama when all characters finally realize he's putting an act. He became ruthless after he was forced to kill F-Sechs (explained further in the CD drama 5) then he became kinder after meeting Haruto. His only slip (Marie) was because of his reminder of F-Sechs that switched him back to his former operandi briefly. He's really saddened by Shoko's and Haruto's pain in the special 'message from the future', he's joyful when Takahi and Satomi married, etc.
* BerserkerTears: After finding out that Lieselotte was a Magius per Haruto, he proceeds to violently beat him down while crying his eyes out
* BrutalHonesty: He tells people the truth, and he doesn't sugarcoat it.
* TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive: He's not the person who ''does'' the calling; he ''is'' the call.
* TheCaptain: As of episode 9, he has become this for Jior's fleet.
* CartwrightCurse: Liselotte appears to have died helping him escape in episode 19, the same episode he gave her a LoveConfession, and the sole reason he did everything he did in the show up till that point.
* CatchPhrase: He is fond of saying something along the lines of "Which leads me to the conclusion of[=/=]that X", X being the result of the scenarios and plans he's working out or a speculation of his. This becomes a form of MadnessMantra after Lieselotte's death, where he begins going through ''every single scenario'' he had thought of (and some he didn't) during the Force Recon group's stay in Dorssiana.
* TheChessmaster: He is ''far'' more than some blindly loyal super-soldier. Case in point: He leaves Haruto with a cryptic message at the start of episode three that turns out to be a ''scarily'' accurate prediction of the events that Haruto would go through in the following days, right down to ''the exact moment L-Elf would show up behind him''. It's also revealed that he'd had at least the next ''five years'' of his plan thought out until he realized that Haruto and the Valvrave could even further accelerate it.
** In episode 7, he even manages to capture the entire colony after Shoko rejects his proposal to militarize New Jior. He even goes so far as to tell various characters very specific things, and later, when Haruto uses his body, he leaves tons of notes inside the Valvrave to help Haruto win the latest fight against Dorssia. Haruto [[LampshadeHanging lampshades this by wondering how he knew all of these things ahead of time.]]
* ColdHam: A pretty obvious example.
* CrazyPrepared: Due to his training by Cain, he spends quite a bit of time to plan out his strategy. In one battle while letting Haruto borrow his body, he leaves a lot of detailed notes telling Haruto exactly what to do, and when to do it. And by following said notes, he manages to win.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: As a child, he was apparently a prisoner. He first met Lieselotte, and was saved by her, while trying to escape.
* {{Determinator}}: During Episode 19 he gets more and more torn up; His left arm is damaged by an explosion, he gets shot in the leg and has the bike he's riding explode right under him, throwing him into a river. He's barely clinging to life by the time he lowers the drawbridge for the shuttle, but is ultimately saved by Haruto.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: He's the most prominent character aside from Haruto and is featured alongside him frequently in official art.
* TheDragon: A-Drei wanted L-Elf to play this role to him.
* TheDreaded: Haruto mentioning L-elf's ''name'' to an interrogator is enough to get an entire room full of people to draw their guns on him. Considering how deadly and quickly he dispatches people prior to this, it's little wonder the ARUS forces would be afraid of him.
* EasilyForgiven: Played with. The Sakimori students don't immediately trust him and only let him join them when they realize that he's too valuable an ally to ignore. After that they pretty much forget the fact that he was an enemy soldier.
* EnemyMine: In the first episode he infiltrates Sakimori High School and indirectly winds up giving Haruto the push he needs to win his first fight. Later on, he's forced to join them after Haruto takes over L-Elf's body and uses it to fight against Dorssia for a time. And ''then'' It turns out that this, ultimately, ''helped'' L-Elf, as Haruto and the Valvrave can potentially help a goal he's been working towards for a very long time now--bringing revolution to Dorssia--''five years sooner than he'd originally planned.'' So now he's hiding amongst the students, trying to force Haruto to join him.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: The main reason Haruto decides to trust L-Elf. In episode 7, after borrowing L-Elf's body to fight off the Dorssian attack, he sees a picture of Liselotte. He then starts crying uncontrollably as the emotions L-Elf has for her overwhelm him. Haruto then finally understands the motivation for why L-Elf was doing everything he was doing and is more agreeable to helping him.
* FailureKnight: Failed to protect the only person he loved.
%%* FounderOfTheKingdom
* FullNameBasis: Calls everyone in JIOR by their full names.
** He does call Haruto by his first name in CD dramas and later episodes that take place months after the battle.
* GivenNameReveal: Mikhail.
* HeelFaceTurn: He is forced to join Haruto at the end of episode 2 in order to keep himself alive, since the latter committed numerous crimes against Dorssia while in L-Elf's body, making them think that he had betrayed them. In episode 3 however he reveals to Haruto that he wants Haruto to join with him to liberate Dorssia. He reveals that he had always been planning a revolution, but Haruto's interference has accelerated his plan by five years.
** ReformedButNotTamed: He will still ruthlessly shoot students that get in the way of his plans without hesitation.
*** TookALevelinKindness: Not anymore. As A-drei said: ''The old you wouldn't have bothered trying to find a plan to save civilians. L-Elf, what changed you?''
* HeroicBSOD: Enters a massive one after Lieselotte's death, where he hides out in a dark room and tries to go through ''every possible scenario'' he had in mind during the strike force's time in Dorssia that could've maybe let to her being saved, but never finds one that might've worked. As he poetically puts it, without the "light" in his life, he is lead to the conclusion of "darkness". Haruto then pushes him in further by revealing Lieselotte was actually a Magius, but then pulls him back out by agreeing to carry on her dream; To create a world where Magius and humans can peacefully coexist.
* IOweYouMyLife: To Lieselotte.
* IronicEcho: When he was escaping the ARUS troops during Episode 3, he gives them a proficiency rating of E for taking fifteen minutes to find out that he escaped. During episode 12, Cain gives him different proficiency ratings (S for non-hesitancy in trying to kill his former instructor and E for Defense, after he beats him up [[CurbStompBattle with ease.]])
* {{Irony}}: The sign he wants Haruto to make to show that he's accepted L-Elf's proposition is a peace sign. As such, L-Elf sometimes throws up the sign when around Haruto as a way to tease him into accepting. L-Elf wasn't aware of the sign's meaning and likely chose it because it wouldn't stand out too much in a crowd, not because of its meaning. Either that or L-Elf was leaning towards it's more common Japanese usage, V for Victory.
* KickTheDog: Revealing the cause of Shoko's father's death to Haruto as well as beating the shit out of him when they both hit the DespairEventHorizon.
%%* {{Kuudere}}
* LackOfEmpathy: Unless your name is [[MoralityPet Lieselotte]], expect him to consider you either [[MurderIsTheBestSolution an obstacle]], [[ManipulativeBastard a useful but expendable pawn]], or [[SomebodyElsesProblem a non-factor]].
* TheLancer: To Haruto. It's even lampshaded in episode 8.
* TheLeader: Eventually becomes the de-facto leader of New JIOR. He is type I.
* LeeroyJenkins: You wouldn't expect this from him but, the moment he learned that Lieselotte was in the same area as the mission in episode 18, he rushed out to rescue her, triggering an alarm.
* MadeOfIron: Episode 19 shows he can take some ''serious'' hits repeatedly and still keep on going.
* TheManBehindTheMan: Of New JIOR.
* ManipulativeBastard: It becomes evident in episode 9 that he is not above manipulating others in order to further his own goals. He purposely let Haruto and Saki get drawn away from the main fleet so that he would have a reason to add two new Valvrave pilots to the line.
* ManlyTears: When possessed by Haruto, his body ''cried'' when he looked at a picture of Princess Lieselotte in episode 7.
** Once again when he finds Haruto, completely depleted of runes and finds out that he cannot remember anything. He even calls him his OnlyFriend.
* MeaningfulName: His real name, [[ArchangelMichael Michael, is taken from the most powerful angel who was the closest to God. Just like how Cain claims L-Elf is "his greatest creation".]]
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: If anyone gets in his way or has no use for his plans, he shoots them in the head without a second thought.
* NotSoStoic: He gradually loosens up as time goes on and starts smiling more often. During the finale, he begins ''crying'' when he finds a dying Haruto.
* NumericalThemeNaming: Eleven.
* OneManArmy: To the point that it is his InSeriesNickname
* OnlyFriend: Revealed in the light novel that A-Drei considers him his rival AND his only friend.
* OutGambitted: In episode eleven, Cain, one of L-Elf's teachers, figures out what L-Elf's plan for victory against the Dorssian army is and gets a scarily effective counterattack ready for the moment Module 77's guard is down.
* PerpetualFrowner: Even when Haruto has control of his body, he won't smile.
** Subverted after episode 4 though. We see him laughing and smirking in amusement after Shoko declares that Sakamori will use Valvrave as a bargaining chip with ARUS and Dorssia, and he has a rather pronounced smile on his face at the end of episode 5 when he is looking at the other Valvrave units he discovered.
* ThePromise: He first had one with Liselotte to eventually free her. He gets pretty damn close, too, but fails when she pulls a HeroicSacrifice for his sake. He later forms one with Haruto in order to "unveil the world" by bringing down the Council of 101 and freeing the world from their corrupt control.
* PurpleEyes: [[PurpleIsPowerful The most lethal character]] of the cast.
* RedBaron: "The OneManArmy".
* RescueRomance: Not in the traditional sense, but he falls in love with her after he holds her hostage, and she gives him "half of her life", signified by cutting off part of her hair. This prevents the Dorssian guards from killing him after he attempted to escape, and he then devotes his life to try and free her from the imprisoned life she was forced into as a member of the royal family, after the coup.
* RoomFullOfCrazy: After the death of Lieselotte, he hides out in a storage room and begins going through every single possible scenario that could've happened during the escape of Dorssiana that could've possibly saved her, while scribbling it all down. By the time he gives up, the far wall, floor and ''ceiling'' are covered in his scribbles.
-->'''L-Elf:''' "I couldn't save her. Not even in a simulation."
* SayMyName:
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Seems to be how he feels about his revolution, and anything he can do to achieve it. He's not above turning around and trying to get the person he called a monster to work with him if it means achieving his goals.
* ShadowArchetype: To Haruto. See the main page for more details.
* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids: His outlook on life.
* TheStoic: Can stab, shoot, and blow people to bits without hesitation or changing his expression.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: He stabs Haruto on the heart, then riddles him with bullets when he tried stealing the Valvrave in season 1, which didn't work. He also orders Haruto to shoot Cain (who was on foot) with the Valvrave during episode 12, stating that he's too dangerous of a man to be allowed to live. Again this didn't work.
* TokenEvilTeammate: He wouldn't hesitate to shoot any of the JIOR students, if he felt they would get in his way
* TheUnfettered: He would have no qualms about killing Shoko in episode 11 if she gave into Dorssia's demands. He also shoots Marie in the head without batting an eye when he believes her to be distracting Haruto from the fight.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Flashbacks to not even a few years into the past reveal that he used to be much less stoic and cold that he is nowadays.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Downplayed since he's also occasionally shows a HiddenHeartOfGold, but he's absolutely ruthless.
* WouldHitAGirl: Is not above killing women.
* WouldHurtAChild: Notably, he knocks out one Karlstein trainee and violently chokes another in Episode 15. He would have killed them on the spot if they had no use to him, but fortunately for then, he uses them as body-jack victims. He also shoots Marie in the head at the end of the episode when the latter slows down his battle plans by stalling Haruto for answers.
* WeCanRuleTogether: At the start of episode three, he leaves Haruto with a cryptic message that ends with "3:14, the answer is behind you." 3:14 is the exact time he shows up behind Haruto; ''He'' was the answer. He then asks Haruto to form a contract with him so that they can bring revolution to Dorssia. He later explains that he wants Haruto to serve as his right hand in achieving his goals.
* WillingChanneler: Allows Haruto to possess him in order to defeat their opponents.
* TheWorfEffect: He doesn't stand a chance in neither planning nor combat against Cain.
* XanatosSpeedChess: An expert player.
* YouAreWorthHell: Lieselotte takes priority over ''everything'', even if it puts the entire operation in Dorssia under risk.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: He has no problems whatsoever killing people who serve no more purpose for his plans. He brutally stabbed and shot Haruto in the first episode in an attempt to steal the Valvrave, was more than willing to shoot Shouko had she begged for her father's life and compromised her position, and shoots Marie in the head when she interrupts his plans by demanding answers from Haruto.

Another young Dorssian agent sent to infiltrate Haruto's high school. He and L-Elf were trained together at the Karlstein Institut. He's fiercely loyal to Dorssia, and L-Elf's apparent betrayal leaves him incredibly shaken as a result. Still, despite this, he expresses interest in taking L-Elf back alive rather than killing him. He's a Dorssian prince and wanted L-Elf to become "his right hand."

After finding out that Haruto was the one who shot him and not L-Elf, they reconcile and team up in order to bring down the Council of 101. They are ultimately victorious and reinstate the previous ruling family of Dorssia.

* BouquetToss: In the epilogue, he catches Satomi and Takahi's bouquet, much to the chagrin of [[ChristmasCake Kriemhild]] and [[ClingyJealousGirl Saki]].
* EasilyForgiven: Once he learns from Saki that L-Elf shooting him was actually him being body-jacked by Haruto at the time, he forgives his friend for it, since their objectives of freeing Dorssia is still their common goal.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He clearly looks disgusted with the treatment of Saki, even if he was the one to capture her and that she is "an immortal monster".
* EyeScream: Gets a shot to his eye thanks to a L-Elf possessed by Haruto. By episode 7, he's wearing a replacement glass eye.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: He gets a scar over his eye as a result of having been shot there.
* HeCleansUpNicely: In the epilogue, we get to see him look stunning in a blue suit at Satomi and Takahi's wedding.
* InternalReformist: His goal is to restore the Dorssian royal family by ascending to the central command of Dorssia.
* LargeHam: Creator/JunFukuyama at his finest.
* NoIndoorVoice: Whenever L-elf is in concerned.
* NobleDemon: After finding out that L-Elf isn't ''really'' the guy who shot his eye out, he frees Saki so that she can go on and save Haruto and L-Elf, even if he now risks execution at the hands of X-Eins.
* NumericalThemeNaming: Three.
* PeekABangs: Especially after L-Elf shoots him in the eye when possessed by Haruto.
* PetTheDog: Uses CPR to revive K-Zwölf, the Karlstein recruit that Saki has jacked in Episode 16, and shows genuine care for the recruit despite only knowing him[=/=]her for at tops half an hour.
** Later, he even allows Saki to go free after she confirms his suspicions that L-Elf didn't shoot him.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Explained below.
* SayMyName: Says "ERU-ERUFU!" (L-Elf) quite a lot in episode 2.
* SpotOfTea: According to the [[AllThereInTheManual first databook]], black tea is his favorite drink. It's something that he takes pride in because he's a part of the royal family.
* TheRival: To L-Elf. Doubles with UnknownRival because he doesn't really pose much of a threat to L-Elf in season 1.
* TantrumThrowing: Throws a glove at the TV when the kids are singing.
* {{Tsundere}}: Towards L-Elf and ''maybe'' Saki. He only had an insanity slip.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Had he not captured Saki and delivered her to the Dorrsian officials, the secret of the Kamitsuki wouldn't have been revealed and countless lives would have been spared,
* WarriorPrince: Revealed to be a prince in episode 6. The reason he is in the military is to try and climb up the ranks and attempt a coup to put the royal family back into power.
* WeCanRuleTogether: He wanted L-Elf to become "his right hand". Flashbacks reveal that this is because they found out that both of them were planning to revolutionize Dorssia.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: Considered L-Elf a friend from their academy days. L-Elf's apparent betrayal clearly leaves him shaken.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Subverted. He's called ''too nice'' by L-Elf and by Saki.

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MamoruMiyano


Another one of the graduates from the Karlstein Institut sent to infiltrate Jior and steal the Valvrave. While not as extreme as Q-Vier, he has a passion for battle and loves melee combat in his personal mech the best. [[spoiler: He gets killed off after learning the truth about Cain.]]
* AntiVillain: He's suspicious of Cain and rummages his room in Episode 10. In Season 2, he and Kriemhild start to actively work to discover the secrets of the Magius.
* CasanovaWannabe: His attempts to flirt with Kriemhild in episode eight are quickly rebuked. Subverted in season 2 via CallBack when she invites him for some tea.
** He is shown to be charming enough to be able to entertain two girls (who seem to like him enough) that he dated during episode 14. His charms fail to work only because he tried using them on [[ShrinkingViolet Aina]] and [[IceQueen Kriemhild.]]
* CaughtOnTape: His earrings have inbuilt recording devices that he can activate by pressing a finger down on each side of it. He uses the blue one that is later given to X-Eins to record all that happens in the Grünau Mansion after he encounters Cain, which leaves X-Eins with all the evidence as to the existence of the Magius, Runes, Cain's true identity and the Council of 101's plans.
* ChivalrousPervert: He hits on pretty much every woman he talks to, including Aina and Kriemhild.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: As of Episode 8 he becomes somewhat suspicious of Cain due to even Kriemhild being left in the dark on his plans. He doesn't seem happy about discovering his commanding officer is actually a Magius in Episode 12.
%%* HandsomeLech
* HeKnowsTooMuch: Cain kills him after finding him sneaking into a derelict castle where the Magius reside, where he proceeds to find the council discussing their desire to get X-Eins' body for one of their members. H-Neun reacts poorly to their discussion of taking away his best friend and gets shot for his trouble.
* HiddenDepths: Going by the contents of his room in Episode 17, he's an avid bicycle enthusiast.
* HotBlooded: His FatalFlaw. Serves as a contrast to X-Eins stoicism.
* KilledOffForReal: Is seemingly dropped dead offscreen by Cain, who is covered in his blood and wielding a gun engraved with "H9" by the time X-Eins comes along.

* NiceGuy: Particularly in comparison to the other Karlstein graduates. He's genuinely jolly and friendly to mostly everyone.

* OnlySaneMan: By far the most well-adjusted of the Karlstein graduates, he is not at all comfortable when he discovers that Cain isn't human.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to X-ein's blue.
* SpannerInTheWorks: H-Neun's recording of the Grünau Manor incident ends up being the single most important tool for the good guys to oust the Magius.
* StealthHiBye: Could move from a cafe counter to the side of Kriemhild's car, which was a good 30 meters away, in the span of 1 pedestrian briefly covering the direct viewing angle between the two spots.
* TakeUpMySword: His blue earring, which is later given to X-Eins, is actually a recorder that he used to capture the audio of his trip into the Grünau mansion from when he met Cain and forward, giving X all the info about Magius, Runes, Cain's identity and H-Neun's fate.
* TragicKeepsake: After his death, H-Neun's earrings are handed out to his fellow graduates. He had four, each of them colored after the hair color of his teammates, and the one representing L-Elf was on his right ear instead of his left, representing his defection.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With X-Eins. They have completely opposite personalities and often bicker and make fun of each other, but they consider each other their best friend. H-Neun's infiltration of the Grünau Mansion that ultimately leads to his demise was his attempt at keeping X-Eins out of potential danger.

* AxCrazy: His age and tone of voice hides a bit of how completely fucking batshit he really is. A FlashBack in episode 15 shows he had this mentality even while growing up and being trained as a Karlstein trainee, but he seemed just a tad saner back then.
%%* BeautyMark
* BreakTheHaughty: H-Neun's death takes a noticeably toll on his cheerfulness.

-->'''Q-Vier:''' '''"LÖWENGLITZEN!"'''
%%* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* CuteAndPsycho: Emphasis on '''psycho'''.
* DissonantSerenity: The calm smile he wears while capturing Saki makes him a bit more terrifying in episode 12. His words are even worse:
-->'''Q-Vier:''' Die, bitch. I'll turn your blood into fire.
* EnfantTerrible: He's a terrifying child soldier who treats killing and violence like a game.
* EvilRedhead: While the rest of the Graduates are at least moral, Q-Vier is evil and insane to the core.

* MurderIsTheBestSolution: Q-Vier's thinking boils down to this: Is that a non-Dorssian? [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} KILL MAIM BURN, KILL MAIM BURN]].
** Actually, it's more along the lines of "will I get in trouble? No?" [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} KILL MAIM BURN, KILL MAIM BURN]]. Ultimately revealing itself a as a borderline DeathSeeker.

[[folder:Cain Dressel]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/DaisukeOno


Commanding officer of the Dorssian forces attacking JIOR who came for the Valvraves. He knows more about them than he lets on, and has a mark on his neck that comes from becoming a Magius around ten years ago. He is a good friend of the Dorssian Fuhrer Amadeus. He is the pilot of Valvrave Unit 02. He is defeated by Haruto during the FinalBattle and dies, but ultimately manages to save Prue and reunite him with Pino.
* TheAce: He's a brilliant strategist, a respected military commander, highly skilled in unarmed combat and also is a Magius, with far more extensive powers than those of the Valvrave pilots.
* AffablyEvil: Always polite with a smile on his face. Even while using L-Elf as a punching bag.
* AllYourPowersCombined: The fully built Valvrave Unit 02 has some of the elements from each of the heroes Valvraves.
* AntiVillain: Type 3; He genuinely wanted to bring world peace, but his way of going about it, namely exterminating Module 77, was a ''bit'' too extreme. He also has genuine friends in Prue and The Fuhrer and is held in high regards by his underlings and the Karlstein Graduates.
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: There's a reason even [[OneManArmy L-Elf]] is ''terrified'' of this guy. He's able to beat L-Elf with his bare hands without so much as a scratch and has some weird light-based powers called the Light of Rune that allows him to animate a Valvrave without limbs.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Could tell that Takumi had been in the military simply by seeing a scar on his shoulder. He then proceeds to point out how it happened, how it was treated etc. right down to exactly what kind of bullet it was. Takumi's face clearly shows that all his guesses were correct.
* BadassBoast:
** Gives a surprisingly direct one to L-Elf and Haruto in his Valvrave:
-->"I told you didn't I? You cannot defeat me".
** And another one slightly later to L-Elf, speaking as if he's grading his exams:
-->"As always, your defense is pathetic. Grade E".
%%* BadassLongcoat
* BadassNormal: During a flashback in Episode 17, he takes out an entire armed terrorist group with just a sword and a knife to save H-Neun and X-Eins.
* BadassTeacher: Remember how badass L-Elf is? This is the man who taught him all that.
* {{Biseinen}}: One of the best looking men in the series, despite being one of the oldest.
* BlackSpeech: Which activates his Light of Rune.
* [[BlackSwordsAreBetter Black Valvraves Are Better: His Valvrave, Unit 02, is given a black makeover]],[[SpoilerOpening as the opening of Season 2 spoils]].
* TheChessmaster: He's mainly used his talents as this for Dorssia's goals so far. Case in point, he ''out-gambits L-Elf'', '''repeatedly'''.
** The reveal of the Valvrave's pilots' {{Immortality}} as well as planting false evidence of them being murdering monsters is shown to have been his idea when Magius!Amadeus compliments him on the effective plan after the broadcast is done.
* CrazyPrepared: His guns have a cut-in on the handle specifically to block knifes.
* CharClone: Blonde, with a covered eye, a high-ranked officer and a suave manipulator? And secret plans of his own that threaten to upstage everyone? AND a special Valvrave? Close enough.
* ColonelBadass: His official rank. However due to being a part of the Magius order, his authority most likely expands far beyond his rank.
* CombatCompliment: Grades his opposition while he fights them. Notably, he gives X-Eins an A after he attempts a TakingYouWithMe with a point-blank Löwenglitzen.
* CurbStompBattle: Once he personally joins the fray, the Dorssian forces absolutely steamrolls Module 77. He personally delivers this to Haruto and L-Elf at the same time without breaking a sweat, and then beats the living bejeezus out of them in Unit 01 with Unit 02, only withdrawing when Prue shows abnormal responses to being in proximity of Unit 01's engine.
** Delivers it once against in the FinalBattle against Haruto, A-Drei and X-Eins at the same time without breaking a sweat.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: He and many of the other Magius have become extremely jaded by the centuries of FantasticRacism they suffered at the hands of humanity when they first tried to peacefully co-exist with them.
* DeadpanSnarker: The undisputed master of this;
-->'''Haruto:''': "It all went according to L-Elf's plan. Just how far can he predict things?
-->'''Cain:''' "Not far enough, apparently".
-->Cain proceeds to ram Module 77 with [[ThisIsADrill a giant drill filled with Dorssian soldiers and poison gas. ]]
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: He ''did'' [[DoubleEntendre impale Saki from behind with his sword.]] On international television no less.
* TheDragon: To the Fuhrer of Dorssia and the Council of 101.
* DramaPreservingHandicap: In Season 2, Most of the action takes place on Earth and not in space, where Cain is at his best. He's still, well, [[XanatosSpeedChess Cain, but L-Elf manages to outgambit him ''once'' because Cain is not nearly as familiar with the Dorssian capitol as L-Elf is.]]
* TheDreaded: It should give you an idea of how horrifying Cain is when even L-Elf is afraid of facing him.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Became a Magius two years later, which only upped his badassery even further.
* EvilSoundsDeep: An interesting example since as opposed to a booming, bass voice, Cain has a deep, loamy voice courtesy of Creator/DaisukeOno that makes him sound even more like a manipulator.
* EyepatchOfPower: And boy do we mean [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking power!]] It falls off while he's dying, but we never get to what's under it because of his BlindingBangs.
* FashionableAsymmetry: His weird-ass left sleeve.
* AFatherToHisMen: In a flashback in episode 17, he personally saves H-Neun and X-Eins from a terrorist group with nothing but a sword and a combat knife, before telling them a quote X-Eins would go on to live by, and which later tips H-neun off that "Cain" is not the Cain he knew in his youth.

* GoodOldFisticuffs: Engages in a round of this with L-Elf in Episode 12, except L-Elf also uses weapons. Cain wins. [[CurbStompBattle Big time.]]
* GoOutWithASmile: After saving Prue from dying with him, he passes on in peace.
* GrandTheftMe: "Cain" is actually a Magius possessing the original Cain's body.
* GrandTheftPrototype: Steals Valvrave Unit 2 from Module 77. Notable as L-Elf thought he's crazy by stealing the one unit that is thought to not work.
* HandicappedBadass: He's missing an eye, meaning he doesn't even have depth perception. He still manage to kick the most ass out of any character in the show.
* HealingFactor: Presumably, seeing as he's a Magius.
* HiddenDepths: He's not just some random high-ranking military official. He's been a Magius for at least ten years, was Amadeus's right hand man in the revolution in Dorssia twenty years ago and is an instructor at the Karlstein Institute, meaning he personally trained all of the Graduates.
* ImpossiblyCoolWeapon: [[http://static2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20131223012653/kakumeikivalvrave/images/8/80/Tumblr_my4pm8RSud1sxw7s8o1_1280.png Unit 02]].
* InvincibleVillain: According to the [[AllThereInTheManual character sheets]], he has no specific weakness.
* KnightOfCerebus: When he starts joining in on the fun, shit goes bad ''really'' fast.
* LargeAndInCharge: The [[AllThereInTheManual character sheets]] list him at 199cm but he looks far taller than that, towering at least 3 or 4 heads over Haruto, who is 173cm.
* LeapDay: His official birthday. Which is [[{{Irony}} ironic because Cain is]] [[OlderThanTheyLook Older Than He Looks]].
* LettingHerHairDown: His otherwise slicked hair falls down as he's dying, [[http://i.imgur.com/7MesTeF.png making him look suspiciously like a blonde L-Elf.]]
%%* LightIsNotGood
* TheMole: The Council of 101 used him to as a spy to keep tabs on Fuhrer Amadeus, which meant they had known of his plan to confiscate the Valvraves the whole time.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: His Valvrave has 6 arms.
%%* NameOfCain
* NotHimself: Cain briefly refers to himself as "That man" in Episode 17, which we later find out is because Cain's body is currently being jacked by one of the Magius.
* NotSoStoic: During the FinalBattle his mask starts chipping away revealing that he is deeply jaded by centuries of racism towards the Magius from humanity, as well as him becoming increasingly worried about Unit 01's capabilities.
* OlderThanTheyLook: He's been active in the military for 20 years and a Colonel for 12 of those, is listed at 38 years, but doesn't look a day over 20. This is because he is a Magius. While he is dying his eyepatch falls off and his hair is let down, revealing that he looks almost like a blonde L-Elf despite his advanced age.
* OnlyFriend: Of Prue.
* OutGambitted: By L-Elf and the other Karlstein members in the end of the show: revealing the Magius to the world when he wanted badly to keep it a secret and didn't expect this move. Cain's ability to predict L-Elf took a nosedive when he became more emotional.
* PerpetualSmiler: He always has a smirk on his face.
* PetTheDog: Besides the fact that he seems to have some affection for the Karlstein Graduates, he is also shown to be very caring of Prue.
** Him saving H-Neun and X-Eins from certain death 12 years ago definitely also fits the bill. It becomes more tragic when you factor in that that Cain is for all intends and purposes dead. When X-Eins later tries [[TakingYouWithMe taking Cain with him with a point-blank Löwenglitzen, he gives him an]] [[BadassTeacher A]].
** In his final moments, he uses all his remaining power to transfer Prue to Unit 01 so that he can be reunited with his sister, even though Cain may have stood a chance of escaping.
* PowerCrystal: He owns a crystal with an AI in it similar to the one in Haruto's Valvrave by the name of Prue. His Valvrave, Unit-2, uses crystals made of the Light of Rune as it's primary armament.
* PowerFloats: Can fly using the Light of Rune since he is a Magius.
* PowerGlows: The Light of Rune.
* PowerTattoo: He has a Magius mark on his neck.
* ThePromise: He has promised Prue to reunite him with his sister Pino no matter what.
* PsychoticSmirk: Upon activating Valvrave 02.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: He recognizes A-Drei's conflict over L-Elf's "betrayal" and tells him that he will be perfectly fine with overlooking any irregularities in their operation to capture Valvrave as long as the main objective is completed, basically giving them a free pass to capture L-Elf rather than kill him. Completely subverted when he is revealed to be a Magius.
* SpoilerOpening: Season 2's openings and ED's have spoiled his Valvrave's black makeover.
* TheStoic: Rarely emotes in any way other than a perpetual smile and impeccable manners, even to his enemies.
* SuperPrototype: Unit 02 turns out to be this, as not only does it carry the same kind of engine as Unit 01 (whereas Units 03-06 carry mirrored copies that are reliant on Haruto's), it was so powerful during testing that the Project VVV scientists decided to freeze it, seeing it as too big a risk. Naturally, it is enhanced even further through Prue's influence and ability to create Rune Crystals out of thin air and proceeds to lay a smackdown on Haruto's Unit 01 [[HandicappedBadass without any limbs, and later delivers a thrashing to X-Eins, A-Drei and Haruto at the same time.]]
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: With his hair let down and his eyepatch off, he looks almost exactly like [[http://i.imgur.com/7MesTeF.png L-Elf with blonde hair. L-Elf was an orphan, which may]] [[StrongFamilyResemblance imply something about them.]]
* TautologicalTemplar: "The Council of 101 is not an evil secret society! We are champions of justice who safeguard the peace of the world!"
* VillainousFriendship: He and Prue are eventually shown to be TrueCompanions, and Prue becomes incredibly saddened by his demise.
* VillainousValour: Saves Prue from dying with him by transferring him to Unit 01 just before 02 explodes.
* TheUnfettered: Just as much, if not more so than L-Elf. Showcased perfectly when he impales Saki from behind with a sword with a completely straight face.
* UnusualEuphemism: Some of the terms he uses like how he claims the Valvrave has "reproduced" and The Light of Rune. This makes both H-Neun and Kriemhild become suspicious of him.
%%* WalkingSpoiler
* YouMonster: He feels this way about the students of Module 77 because they want to out the Council of 101, who were actually trying to lead humanity towards peace from the shadows, justifying their kidnapping of people for their runes en masse as how humanity will pay them for leading them towards peace. Haruto doesn't buy it.

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NanaMizuki


The second-in-command in the Dorssian fleet surrounding Module 77. She's actually a Royalist in favor of restoring the previous government. She is also rightly suspicious of Cain and his goals, and begins to help the Jiorans of Module 77 in season two. She was actually in contact with the previous Dorssian King. She survives the final battle and winds up becoming good friends with the surviving Karlstein graduates and students of Module 77.
* AntiVillain: As of Episode 8 she is becoming suspicious of Cain. Later it is revealed she is an undercover Royalist and actively works with the heroes as of Episode 18 and forward.
* BeautifulAllAlong: Sure, she was already quite attractive in uniform, but off-duty? [[http://www.entravity.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/valvrave-14-16-kriemhild.jpg Darn]].
* CallBack: Brings up and accepts H-Neun's request for them talking over a cup of tea in Episode 14.
* CoolCar: Her awesome blue sports car shown in Episode 14.
* DeadpanSnarker:

-->'''H-Neun:''' She's a woman and I am a man.
-->'''Kriemhild:''' No, I am an adult and you are a horny brat.
-->Q-vier proceeds to lose his shit.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Is seemingly warming up to H-Neun.
* {{Gainaxing}}: In the first episode.
* MeaningfulName: Kriemhild comes from the German word for mask and, more importantly, battle. Literally speaking, this would be "battle mask".
* TheMole: Is a agent of the Royalists amongst the Dorssian military and passes info along for Lieselotte.
%%* NiceHat
* OhCrap: Watch her face whenever Haruto annihilates a large part of the Dorssian fleet. Mainly because unlike Cain, Kriemhild seems to honestly care for her men.
** And once again when she accidently leaks Lieselotte's position to L-Elf.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Cain's second-in-command and one of the sanest Dorssians.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Averted. She's one of the better Dorssians.
* ShoutOut: She shares a first name with a very powerful [[Anime/{{Puella Magi Madoka Magica}} witch.]]
* StatuesqueStunner: Towers above most of the people in the cast. Which makes sense because most of the cast are teenagers and she's 26.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Asking if there is a man named "Michael" with them to the Jiorians sets off a chain of events that leads to the plan they had almost going to hell in one fell swoop. By the way, "Michael" is L-Elf's real name, and the question causes him to deduct that Liselotte was around the area, [[LeeroyJenkins causing him to run off]] [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl to her rescue.]]

[[folder:Chancellor Amadeus K. Dorssia[=/=]Mirko]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TakehitoKoyasu


The current Chancellor of Dorssia, who brought a revolution to the country twenty years ago, transforming it from a monarchy to a dictatorship by overthrowing the royal family. He is dearly beloved by his people. After inadvertently working against the Council of 101 by invading JIOR, his body is stolen by a Magius named Mirko.

The Magius who took over him tries to write off the Dorssian invasion of Jior as an effort to wipe out the "monsters" that were hiding in Module 77 by pinning the Magius's common practice of kidnapping people and siphoning their runes on them. This ultimately backfires when L-Elf reveals his HealingFactor and crimes to the world in the same way he did to the students of Module 77. The ARUS security present there force him to reveal the truth about the Council of 101 to the world. While we do not see his death, it's heavily implied that he is executed along with most of the Council for their crimes.
* AntiVillain: He's not really evil. His country's conquering of JIOR is surprisingly humane, and only for the purpose of getting the Valvraves out of Magius hands.
%%* {{Biseinen}}
* BlatantLies: When he meets with Anderson post-Module 77 incident in Episode 22, he proposes that he wants to be "friends" read: middle men with the President.
* BlingOfWar: Amadeus has got it going on with his pimp-ass uniform.
* EvilerThanThou: The Council of 101 transforms him into a Magius in Episode 13, drawing him to their side.
* GrandTheftMe: Like Cain, the Fuhrer is actually being possessed by one of the Magius.
* {{Guyliner}}: Just in case you needed more proof about how {{Camp}} Creator/TakehitoKoyasu is.
* HitlerCam: A lot. It may have something to do with the fact that he's really tall.
%%* ImpossiblyCoolClothes
* {{Irony}}: He has Saki impaled with a sword on international television to out the Kamitsuki, calling them monsters for their healing powers. A few episodes later, L-Elf slits his throat in front of the entire world to reveal his own immortality to the public.
* LargeHam: It's Creator/TakehitoKoyasu, what did you honestly expect?
%%* MysteriousMiddleInitial
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: He launched the invasion of JIOR in order to keep the Valvraves away from the Magius, not knowing that the commander of the invasion force, Cain Dressel, was a Magius all along and by extension basically gave them an opportunity to acquire a Valvrave.
* OhCrap: When he finds out that the Council of 101 had tabs on what he was doing the whole time and then when one of the Magii is about to bite him.
** Again when L-Elf and his revolutionaries attack the international broadcast of their occupation of Module 77 and outs him as also having the healing powers of the "monsters" he invaded Jior to exterminate.
* PuttingOnTheReich: He ''totally'' looks the par for being a leader of a seemingly fascist nation.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: For the most part. He is trying to conquer JIOR, though as it turns out he has a good reason for it: Keeping the Valvraves as far away from the Council of 101 as possible, but he is also the highly approved-of leader of the Dorssian nation.
* RousingSpeech: He is a ''master'' of this.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: Although there doesn't seem to be anything supernatural about them
* VillainousFriendship: He and Cain are close friends, even from before they took over Dorssia.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Though how villainous is very much debatable. At least before he was body-jacked.

[[folder:Princess Lieselotte]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AkiToyosaki


A princess and heir of the Dorssian Empire. Many years before the start of the story, she rescued L-Elf from a group of soldiers who were trying to kill him for an unknown reason by giving him "half of her life", or, in other words, cutting off half of her hair and giving it to him. Even now, it is obvious that L-Elf bears strong feelings for her, and it is hinted that she is part of the reason why he wants to bring revolution to Dorssia.

She is actually a Magius who attempted to reveal the existence of her species to mankind in the hopes of creating a society where they could coexist, but The Council of 101 stopped her.
* BodySnatcher: As with all Magius.
%%* TheCutie
* DamselOutOfDistress : This is shown in the past when L-Elf took her as a hostage in order to stop the guards from pursuing him. She plucks the needle L-Elf is holding out of his hand and undoes his grasp on her with ease.
* DullEyesOfUnhappiness: The clear sign that she dies during her HeroicSacrifice is that she gains the same pupil-less brown eyes as Marie.
%%* DyingMomentOfAwesome
%%* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Episode 16 foreshadows that she has some relation to the Magius, and in Episode 19 she is ultimately revealed to be a Magius by Pino.
%%* GirlishPigtails
* GrandTheftMe: She's a Magius, so it's a given. The scene where she possesses the original Lieselotte's body is shown right before her death.
* HeelFaceTurn: Performed this before the start of the series in the hopes of creating a world where humans and Magius could live together. The Council of 101 stopped her and incited the Dorssian Revolution to strip her of her influence and routinely drain her of Runes to keep her weakened.
* HeroicSacrifice: Uses her Light of Rune to stabilize a damaged part of the rocket carrying the Earthspace group into space for long enough to get altitude, but it ends up draining her completely of Runes.
* ImportantHaircut: When she was younger, she cut off half of her hair and gave it to L-Elf in order to symbolize her giving [[LiteralMinded "half of her life" to him.]]
%%* TheIngenue
%%* {{Keigo}}
* LightIsGood: She has the same Light of Rune-based powers as Cain. Unlike him, however, she uses them for good.
* LordCountry: Her full name is listed as Lieselotte W Dorssia when her status as magius is revealed to the world.
* LoveEpiphany: At first she claims that she, a Magius, and L-Elf cannot be together because they are different life forms. Haruto then claims that statement is hogwash and while she at first doesn't show it, she comes to realize that she probably loved L-Elf back.
%%* LiteralMinded
* MayflyDecemberRomance: She is a Magius and L-Elf is a human, so she would, if she kept on finding new hosts, outlive him by an indefinite amount of years.
%%* MegaTwintails
* OdangoHair: When she was a child.
%%* {{Ojou}}
* OlderThanTheyLook: She is at the very least a handful of centuries old.
%%* RapunzelHair
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Cain mentions that she betrayed the Magius in the past and that's why she has to be put inside a machine. Her response was that she didn't betray them and that she was simply doing what was right.
* SecretKeeper: She is the only person who knows L-Elf's real name. When Kriemhild asks for a person with the same name, he quickly deduces that Kriemhild has recently held a conversation with her and storms off to save her.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: In the first season she's only seen in the opening, in a brief FlashBack with L-Elf, and in a picture. Haruto is initially hesitant to help L-Elf in his plans until he saw that picture of her while in L-Elf's body, and starts crying uncontrollably. He then realized that L-Elf's plans were all to help her and finally changes his mind. She then sacrifices herself in episode 19 to help L-Elf escape with the JIOR recon force.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Only 3 episodes after she became more prevalent in the plot is she killed off after pulling a glorious HeroicSacrifice.
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: She's apparently the first Magius to gain an understanding of what it means to be in love, thanks to L-Elf.
* WideEyedIdealist: Much like Haruto, L-Elf often chastises her for this.

!!Senator Figaro
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KojiYusa


A diplomat representing the ARUS. He comes to JIOR in order to assist with the relief effort, as JIOR and ARUS are allies. He later reveals his true colors when the only means of pulling off a large-scale evacuation are destroyed by L-Elf, making him choose to secretly escape with his soldiers, steal the Valvrave, and kidnap Haruto. Thankfully, Shoko and her friends ruin his plans.

Q-Vier unceremoniously kills him when destroying his ship in episode six.
* DirtyCoward: Is ''not'' above leaving an entire school full of minors behind if it means getting away safely.
* IWantThemAlive: Tries to forcefully drag Haruto along for his escape in episode 4 so Haruto can serve as a research subject.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: He intelligently orders the people of JIOR to abandon their home, since there is no possible way that they can stand against he full might of the Dorssian army.
* NiceGuy: From what we've seen, he appears to be a rather decent fellow for a politician. [[SubvertedTrope And then he decides to abandon the Sakamori students in favor of taking Valvrave and escaping with his soldiers.]]
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Seems to be this... for about one episode. See above.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Gets killed off rather nonchalantly by Q-vier in episode 6.
* WouldHurtAChild: What does he do when Raizo gets in his way? Fires a ''machine gun'' at him.

!!Jeffrey Anderson (ARUS President)
--> '''voiced by:''' Taketora


An elderly man who was democratically elected to serve as the commander-in-chief of the ARUS. He is aware of the existence of the Magius and apparently meets with them regularly, but he is not a member of their council. His real name is never used in the show, and comes from the novelized version of the show.
* CoolOldGuy: From what we've seen. Until Episode 21 when he instigates ThePurge of Module 77.
* DidNotSeeThatComing: There was only one significant flaw in his master plan to frame the residents of module 77 as monsters, and initiating ThePurge. Akira ''lives and resides'' in her Valvrave unit, completely circumventing his plans to seal off the docking bay.
* ILied: Creates a deal where the remaining students are allowed to trade away the Valvrave pilots in return for their guaranteed safety, only to open fire on them as soon as they capture Haruto.
* {{Jerkass}}: He personally instigates a massacre of the Sakamori Academy students after he finds out about the {{immortality}} of the Third-generation Magius. The worst part comes from the fact that he did this out of his own free will, as Episode 22 confirms that he is indeed not a Magius himself.
* KarmaHoudini: Zigzagged. While he never suffers an on-screen punishment for his ordering ThePurge on module 77 and oath-breaking with Shoko when he's forced her into a LeonineContract, his last appearance in the series is him desperately hoping and praying on the bridge of his flagship that broadcasting the signal exposing the Magius will allow him to escape retribution for his sins in the chaos. Since his actions are firmly embedded in the history of the Kamitsuki empire, being retold to "The Prince" by Saki, we can assume he didn't.
* KickTheDog: While he could claim that he initated ThePurge of Module 77 for fear of the council 101, he has no excuse for when he coldly and cruelly stops to taunt and torment Shoko after breaking the LeonineContract he forced her into and calling her and her people "vermin" to then calmly leave them for dead.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Does this to the Magius by the end of the series.
* LeonineContract: He cripples the mass driver, surrounds Shoko with three Kirchbaum and then "offers" her safe passage if she hands over the Valvrave pilots. Once she does, he breaks his word and has Shoko attacked anyway.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Is exclusively reffered to as "President". His real name, Jeffrey Anderson, is only revealed in the novelization of the anime, which came [[AnimeFirst after the show itself]].
* OurPresidentsAreDifferent: At first he's somewhere between President Scheming and President Personable, a reasonably friendly chap who convenes with the Council of 101 together with Fuhrer Amadeus as representatives of mankind, but isn't really evil. Later in the show he turns into a PresidentEvil and President Corrupt when he orders the massacre of Sakamori Academy as a part of the Council's plan.
* ThePurge: He orders the brutal massacre of the Module 77 students after condemning them as dangerous extraterrestial lifeforms when Saki's immortality is demonstrated by a Dorssian broadcast, as part of the Magius' plan to remove them from the World Stage.
** Did it again against the Magius in the finale.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Subverted after the massacre of Module 77.
* SharpDressedMan: He's always seen in a very nice suit.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: He openly calls the students in Module 77 "vermin" because they've been genetically modified into artificial magius. He would secretly come to regret this in the finale.


!!Valvrave AI Girl/Pino


A young woman who appears on the Valvrave's console when Haruto is asked if he's willing to give up being human, and serves as its guide program. She's shown to be at least semi-sentient and is only present in Valvrave Unit 01, Haruto's unit. She is actually not an AI, but a Magius who was sealed inside Valvrave in order to create a machine that could be powered by Runes, the information and memories stored within human cells.

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AiKayano
* AIIsACrapshoot: All clues point ''her'' being the cause of Haruto's berserk lapses. The current consensus is that ''she's the one taking over.'' Later subverted in that she is not an actual AI.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Even if she does have enough awareness, there's really no logic or sense in what she is doing.

** In episode 10, while Haruto is [[RapeAsDrama raping Saki, a cutscene showing the AI is visible for a moment, and the words "Sex" pops up several times on the screen.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: When it was revealed that she was sentient and had been forced into the Valvrave, her loyalty seemed tenuous, especially considering that she took over Haruto's body in order to rape Saki. Once she gains a better understanding of humans, however, she ultimately sides with the students of Module 77 and tries to turn Prue to the side of good as well.
* KarmaHoudini: Never even gets scolded for what she used Haruto's body to do to Saki.

A being very similar to the AI girl in Haruto's Valvrave whom Cain has kept hidden within a crystal for an unknown amount of time.

!!Soichi Tokishima
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ToshihikoSeki

Haruto's father, a genius scientist who works for a pharmaceutical company. In reality, he is a MadScientist and the head of the VVV Project that gave birth to the Valvraves. He works in an underground laboratory in the Royalist part of the Dorssian capitol Dorssiana. He is obsessed with creating the next step in human evolution through the use of the Valvraves and third-generation Magii, referring to the latter as "Homo Sapiens Novus".
%%* BigOlEyebrows
* DisappearedDad: Haruto hasn't seen him in three years due to a combination of how busy Soichi was, the Dorssian invasion of JIOR and Haruto living in a boarding school.
* DotingParent: The first thing he does upon meeting Haruto again is to feel him all over, much to his embarrassment, as they are right in front of Inuzuka, Takumi and the other VVV Project scientists.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Takumi briefly mentions him in the first episode. Turns out he's a central piece to solving the riddle of the Valvraves, seeing as he ''created'' them.
* ForScience: His justification for all of the atrocities he commits. He wants to create the perfect being, and is willing to go as far experimenting on human children to do so.
* AGodAmI: Compares himself to God because he created what he thinks is the UltimateLifeform, the third-generation Magii.
* {{Jerkass}}: To a mind-boggling degree.
* LackOfEmpathy: He doesn't keep a picture of Haruto on his desk. He has a picture of Haruto's ''genetic code''. He also thinks that he has the moral high ground when Haruto disapproves of his actions because he received military permissions and the consent of the parents of the to-be-experimented-on children.
* MadScientist: He's completely morally detached from reality, keeps a picture of Haruto...'s genetic code on his desk, created the Valvraves and messed with the genes of his own and other's children so they could pilot them. WOW. And he also thinks that this is perfectly moral because he received permission to do it. Bullseye in every category.
* NeverMyFault: Does not at all realize just how many negative consequences has come from his project.
* ParentalAbandonment: Neglected Haruto to work on the VVV Project.
* PerpetualSmiler: Even when describing how grotesque the VVV Project was, involving both human experimentation, gene-splicing of children still in the womb and so on, he retains an audacious, jovial grin.

* SocialDarwinist: Claims that Haruto and the other Magius living off of humans is moral because they are now the new top link of the food chain.

!! The Magius Clan[=/=]The Council of 101

The AncientConspiracy seemingly behind everything going on, with members including the President of ARUS, Fuhrer Amadeus and Cain. Later on it's revealed that they did not initiate the war; They actually have a hands-off policy for human-on-human conflict. They chose to get involved after discovering that the Valvraves are closely linked to their race, the Magius Clan, thanks to their main informant, Cain.

In reality, they were originally a group of a species of aliens without a physical body who crashed on Earth several hundred years ago. The Council of 101 is comprised of Magius who've chosen to take over the bodies of the most influential humans on Earth in order to hide the existence of Magius from humans and find reliable ways of gathering Runes, which are vital to their survival.

Their crimes are revealed to the world during the series finale. Humanity unites against them and they are systematically hunted down.
* TheAgeless: As long as they can gain new vessels, the Magius are immortal.
%%* AliensAreBastards
%%* AllEncompassingMantle
* AncientConspiracy: The Council of 101 was established some hundred years ago after a secret war with mankind.
* AssimilationPlot: According to Cain, the Magius Clan wants to "connect their lives together".
* BadassCreed:
-->''"We are the Magius. We govern the world from the shadows."''

* BigBad: They seemingly pass commands onto [[TheDragon Cain and rule Dorssia and ARUS from the shadows.]]
* BizarreAlienBiology: They have no physical forms and exist only as clusters of Runes.
* BlackSpeech: They all chant in chorus in the same ghastly tongue as when Cain activates his powers during Amadeus's transformation into a Magius.
* BodySnatcher: All of the Magius have to do this to survive.
* CastFromHitPoints: As Marie and Liselotte demonstrated, using the Light of Rune takes a toll on their bodies. More specifically, it drains away the memories of the Magius' host body, leaving them as an empty shell once all the runes have dried out. This also effectively kills the Magius spirit within as they need runes to survive. However, unlike the previously mentioned, the Council has access to far more Runes and are thus not really in danger from using them.
* EldritchLocation: Their council is based in on Earth in the middle of the ocean. They have a fairly normal-looking council room at the bottom of a 360 degree waterfall.
* TheFaceless: Their faces are often [[FaceFramedInShadow covered by shadow and their hats obscure their eyes, but even the ones with visible faces have no distinctive features besides lipstick or facial hair.]]
* GrandTheftMe: Their modus opperandi. When a member's current vessel gets old, they use their power and influence to find a new, younger one who is in a good position to take a seat of power in the world.
* HiddenEyes: Their hats obscure their eyes.
* ImmortalitySeeker: They live forever by stealing the bodies of younger people and discarding their old ones.
* InsaneTrollLogic: They justify their devouring humans by claiming that it's how humanity will pay them in exchange for leading them towards peace from the shadows, and that the Valvrave pilots are the true monsters for trying to out them. Of course, as soon as they're out of the picture, the Galactic Empire is established and Humanity finally does achieve world peace.
* {{Irony}}: They were victims of witch hunts and condemned as monsters in the past. Then they attempted to do this to the children of Module 77. That last parts sets the pieces in place for the entire thing being turned on its head and launching one final monster extermination, with them as the monsters. Its overwhelmingly successful.
* LaserGuidedKarma: In the end, their existence is revealed along with their crimes and they are hunted down and slaughtered.
* LightIsNotGood: The Light of Rune.
* TheManBehindTheMan: They are heavy influences on the ARUS and Dorssian governments.
* NiceHat: They all wear giant purple suegasa-like hats.
* OhCrap: They have a collective one once the PR War they'd previously been winning gets turned on its head by the revelation that Amadeus also has healing powers, proving to the people of the world that they were being manipulated and lied to.

* TokenHuman: Fuhrer Amadeus and the ARUS President report to the council and were human. Then Amadeus was forcibly taken into the Council at the beginning of Season 2.
* TransHumanTreachery: For reasons yet to be explained the moment Amadeus is turned into a Magius he is now on the council's side, despite being implied to have been working against them by attempting to collect the Valvraves. This is later revealed to be because the Magius have the same body-hopping powers as the Valvrave pilots, and his body was taken over by one of their members.
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: They were trying to guide humanity to world peace, and were taking people and using their runes as "payment."

!!The Prince
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/YuiHorie

A young boy we see Saki and Satomi personally tutoring and watching over in the far future. He is the prince of the first Galactic Empire we see in the flash-fowards. To him, the events of the Valvrave anime are important historical fact. His appearance is startlingly similar to Haruto and L-Elf.
* AudienceSurrogate: He gets a very personal, but still second-hand view of the hardships the Sakimori students faced, and also knows from the get-go that they win and are the righteous party in the war. The difference is that for us, we are an audience. To him, he's learning historical fact from people who were directly a part of it.
