If you want to know more about the characters of ''Manga/{{X1999}}'', this is the place.

It is to be noted that characterization and purpose are often different whether it's the manga, the TV series or the film. If the main trio, the premises and the whole plot in general are grossly the same from one media to another, the support cast often sports notable differences as you will see.

As always with Character pages, '''SPOILERS AHEAD!!'''


[[folder:Main Trio]]

!!Kamui Shiro
->Voiced by: Creator/TomokazuSeki (JP, film and CD dramas), Creator/KenichiSuzumura (JP, TV series), Alan D. Marriott (EN, film), Creator/SteveStaley (EN, TV series), Ian Hawk (EN, child), Masumi Mutsuda (Spain)

TheHero of the series is a dark-haired teenager whose destiny is to fight for the eventual fate of Earth: either it is destroyed to be reborn without humanity, either it shall live on as it is. In short, he is a stock [[MessianicArchetype Messiah]].

After living his childhood in Tokyo, making friends with [[EvilCounterpart Fuma]] and his sister [[BarrierMaiden Kotori]], his mother, [[DisposableWoman Toru Magami]], towed him away to Okinawa ([[spoiler:Right around the time their mother Saya gave birth to the first Shinken and died in the process]]) so they could live in peace until [[spoiler: she decided to end her life so she could postpone the impending disasters that Kamui would face and [[IncendiaryExponent died in a fire]].]]

After coming back to Tokyo, he gradually meets the Dragons of Heaven, fighting with Arashi, Sorata and MauveShirt Daisuke, Aoki's nephew. Behaving like a {{Jerkass}} at first, he only does so [[JerkAssFacade in order to keep people away]], knowing beforehand that his fate will be far from all pink, sparkles and flowers. After meeting [[BlindSeer Princess Hinoto]] and eventually bonding with his fellow Dragons, he tries to recuperate his Shinken, an EmpathicWeapon [[spoiler: hidden in the body of Tokiko Magami, his aunt, unbeknownst to everyone.]]

Despite his rather [[MessianicArchetype classical characterisation]], Kamui still keeps the spotlight to himself due to his own complex personality. His frail and scrawny appearance (perhaps for {{Yaoi}}-slash purposes) seems almost a joke in comparison to his crushing responsibilities. Yet, his reactions are pretty realistic and quite akin to the ones a RealLife teenager would display.


Tropes associated with Kamui Shiro:

* AngstComa: Right after losing to Fuma [[spoiler: and being unable to stop him from horribly killing Kotori.]]
%% * {{Bishonen}}
* BreakTheBadass: Like many other characters, but even more so for being TheChosenOne. To put it on perspective: the sensitive and broken but still determined Kamui that we know? He's the result of '''all''' the horrible shit poured on him, leaving him unable to put on his JerkassFacade anymore.
* DestructiveSavior: At first he gave no shits about leaving quite the mess in his surroundings, and Saiki thought he wasn't TheChosenOne because of this.
* TheChosenOne: Destined to make the decision of either saving humanity at Earth's cost or destroy it in Earth's benefit. [[spoiler:Little he knows is that ThereIsAnother.]]
* EmpathicWeapon: The Shinken, a magic sword that is pretty much a living being as it has to be born [[spoiler:out of a woman.]]
* HeroicBastard: Was shunned by everyone except the Monous as a child for not having a father.
* HeroicBSOD: Upon beholding the deaths of [[spoiler: Kotori and Sorata (TV series only)]], the former causing him to enter an AngstComa.
* MeaningfulName: The kanji in his name (神威) can be read as ''God's power''. ''Kamui'' can also mean ''bear'', which makes allusion to The Big Dipper (Major Ursa), the constellation that represents the Seven Seals.
* TakeAThirdOption: Does this in the anime [[spoiler: So Kamui doesn't want to kill Fuuma, yet cannot afford to be defeated and killed in battle? He will let Fuuma injure him... then he'll his life energy to create said barrier and entrust Fuuma with his wish to protect the world. [[DyingMomentOfAwesome And it works]].]]
* JerkassFacade: Initially so he could drive people away from [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies in order to protect them.]] This was specially true in regards to the Monous. They didn't really buy it.
%% * MessianicArchetype
* TookALevelInKindness: He becomes a Dragon of Heaven having realized what he wanted to protect those dear to him. After [[spoiler: Kotori died and Fuuma had his FaceHeelTurn]], he was terribly broken... and once he came back, he bonded properly with the Dragons of Heaven, showing them the kindness he either repressed or didn't know he had in him.
* YouKilledMyMother: At first, his purpose was to investigate the reasons behind his mother Tohru's strange death and few else. [[spoiler: The truth he uncovers is... more complicated than he expects.]]

!!Fuma Monou
->Voiced by: Creator/KenNarita (JP, film and CD dramas), Creator/JunichiSuwabe (JP, TV series), Adam Henderson (EN, film), Creator/CrispinFreeman (EN, TV series), Jordi Pons (Spain, film), Ramón Hernández (Spain, TV series)

The taller and stronger childhood friend of Kamui is actually destined to be his EvilTwin of sorts, depending on who Kamui chooses to side with.

Both Fuma and Kotori, his sister, lived happily in Tokyo and were friends with Kamui until their mother [[DisposableWoman Saya]] died a horrific death upon [[spoiler:giving birth to the first Shinken]]. Fuma then went to High School and became a famed basketball player. Upon meeting Kamui again, he tries to rekindle with him but, since Kamui wants to protect him, his attempts meet an icy response. After Kamui makes his choice, Fuma makes a major FaceHeelTurn and goes to [[FemmeFatale Kanoe]] in order to take his place amongst the Dragons of Earth.


Tropes associated with Fuma Monou:

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Despite what many viewers of any gender may contend, blatant HoYay doesn't deprive you from being badass and from being able to kick major ass.
* BadassLongcoat: Just after he joined the Dragons of Earth, his wardrobe now includes longcoats.
%% * TheBigGuy
%% * {{Bishonen}}
* TheDreaded: Whenever a Dragon of Heaven faces him, it's a CurbStompBattle. Daisuke and [[spoiler:Sorata (in the anime)]] lost their lives when fighting him though the latter managed to inflict damage on him before he dies. However, Fuuma is just merely granting what they wanted which to protect their loved ones [[HeroicSacrifice at the cost of their lives]]. Subaru and Yuzuriha are nearly closed to death if it weren't for the wishes with the former wanting [[spoiler:to be killed by Seishirou]] and the latter wanting to live.
* EvilCounterpart: To Kamui.
* FaceHeelTurn: As expected upon Kamui's choice to side with the Seven Seals.
* HeroKiller: He's probably the only character with the highest kill count though this only in the anime and movie. [[spoiler:In the anime, he killed Kotori, Daisuke, Sorata, Nataku and Kamui while in the movie, he killed Kotori (again), Kusanagi, Yuto, Kanoe, Sorata (again) and Arashi]]. In the manga, he only killed two people [[spoiler:(Daisuke and Nataku)]] so far unless you count destroying the entire Ginza area.
* HiddenAgendaVillain: At this point only Fuuma and CLAMP themselves know just what his deal is.
* LiteralGenie: Gives people EXACTLY what they wish for, hence BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor. In example, [[spoiler: when he kills Nataku in the manga, he explains that he's just doing it because Nataku wanted to die protecting someone important ''and'' at the hands of the one he loves; later, he doesn't kill Karen because she was the person Nataku died protecting, thus he wants to honor Nataku's own wish.]] Similarly, in the anime [[spoiler: he absorbs Nataku into himself with a similar reasoning, since Nataku wanted to die for him.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: In the anime.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Often does this to Kamui as well as his companions.

!!Kotori Monou
->Voiced by: Creator/JunkoIwao (JP, film and CD dramas), Creator/MamikoNoto (JP, TV series), Larissa Murray (EN, film), Creator/MichelleRuff (EN, TV series), Joël Mulachs (Spain, film), Creator/NuriaTrifol (Spain, TV series)

The resident ShrinkingViolet is Kamui's childhood friend and who has a (reciprocated) crush on him.

Like Fuma, Kotori was scarred for life upon watching the gory death of her mother. However, unlike Fuma and Kamui, she doesn't fight physically. Psychologically/[[IllGirl physically]] fragile and [[NeutralFemale pretty much defenseless]], Kotori lives her life quietly and peacefully in the family shrine, but she snaps and [[GoMadFromTheRevelation breaks]] [[TheOphelia down]] upon [[spoiler:seeing the birth of the second Shinken out of Tokiko Magami's body]].

As foreseen by Hinoto and Kanoe [[spoiler:she ends up being the wedge between Kamui and Fuma, and her brother eventually captures, crucifies, kills ''and'' dismembers her in front of Kamui. (In the anime, she's "only" crucified and killed). Her soul is then collected by Kakyou, who comforts her in her last moments before going to Heaven; her body is buried in the CLAMP Campus by the Dragons of Heaven]].

Tropes associated with Kotori Monou:

* AngstComa: In the film. [[spoiler: And sorta happens in the anime, since unlike in the manga she spends almost all the time asleep after [[GoMadFromTheRevelation being mentally broken]], and she's more or less sane while in said Dream Space.]]
* BarrierMaiden: She is unknowingly the guardian of the world's peace. This puts her in quite the risk.
* BreakTheCutie: Oh dear. And for worse, [[spoiler: the breaking process comes from ''years ago''. And only finished '''[[KillTheCutie with her death]]'''.]]
%% * TheChick
* CynicismCatalyst: Inverted for Kamui. Before her death he is apathic, at most, to his role in the End of the World. While he does take a side before her death, it's the event itself that makes him determined to protect his loved ones that are left (Fuuma included), and, thus, to embrace his role as a Dragon of Heaven.
* DreamWeaver: In the manga and TV series. In TheMovie she spends some time in a dream-like state, but it's not clear if it's the same power or just a trance.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Her flowing golden locks underline how she's sweet, innocent, and associated with symbols of purity.
* IllGirl: Has a ''severe'' heart condition, thus she sometimes has seizures and fainting spells.
* TheOphelia: She loses her mind after seeing [[spoiler: the horrific birth of the second Shinken]]. It's subverted in the anime series: [[spoiler: She ''does'' break down and collapses, but spends almost all the time until her death pulling her DreamWeaver stunts and remains mostly grounded, so to say, as she does so.]]
* PersonOfHolding: Only in TheMovie. [[spoiler: She has one of the Shinkens inside her body, and Fuuma murders her via pulling it out of the poor girl's stomach with his bare hands. ''In front of Kamui, Hinoto, Arashi and Sorata, who had just tried to help her run away''.]]
%% * RapunzelHair
* ShrinkingViolet: Though not to FragileFlower degree.
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: Hence her fate.
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: To Kamui but subverted at one point. [[spoiler: He ''did'' love her, they made a ChildhoodMarriagePromise and had she not died, maybe they'd be together or at least would be ''very'' close.]]
* WaifProphet: Like Kakyou and Hinoto, she can see the future in her dreams but she's not of aware of its use.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Sweet-tempered, serious, booksmart, discreet and rather shy. She was more outspoken and with a little more of steel under her silky hand in the TV series: Kamui shows her his JerkassFacade but [[PluckyGirl she still tries to re-befriend him]], telling him about her own dream of becoming a kimono designer [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indigo_dye#Classical_antiquity-Middle_Ages able to use indigo dye]] (which is SeriousBusiness in Japan), and it actually brings Kamui a bit out of his shell.


[[folder: Dragons of Heaven: The Seven Seals]]

!!Sorata Arisugawa
->Voiced by: Creator/KoichiYamadera (JP, film and CD dramas), Creator/MitsuakiMadono (JP, TV series), Mike Fitzpatrick (EN, film), Creator/TonyOliver (EN, TV series), Claudi Domingo (Spain, film), Aleix Estadella (Spain, TV series)

The [[TheBigGuy tall]], upbeat, [[PluckyComicRelief goofy]] [[TheLancer Lancer]] of the Dragons of Heaven talks with a distinctive [[TheIdiotFromOsaka Kansai]] accent.

Despite being taken from his parents at an early age and [[spoiler: destined to die for the woman he loves]], he constantly acts friendly, generous and protective, especially towards Kamui and his initially [[EmotionlessGirl unresponsive]] crush, Arashi. Raised and trained by Buddhist monks in the Koya shrine, he primarily uses thunder and light-based attacks as well as some holy magic.

He eventually meets his fate in both the anime and the film, [[spoiler: to protect his beloved Arashi]]. The manga also hints a similar end for him, as he's last seen [[spoiler: trying to confront Hinoto on his own, without knowing she's been taken over by her EnemyWithin.]]


Tropes associated with Sorata Arisugawa:

* TheBigGuy: In the Dragons of Heaven group as a whole. [[spoiler: Which, in the movie and the TV series, extends to BigGuyFatalitySyndrome.]]
* BiTheWay: It is made pretty obvious that Arashi is his one true love and he also comments on Kotori's cuteness in the manga, but [[HoYay he gets pretty flirty with Kamui]] in the early chapters of the manga. He even comments while Kamui and Arashi are on either side of him how grateful he is to be between "two beauties".
* BromanticFoil: He's one to Kamui in the early parts of the manga, right before it went FromBadToWorse.
* ComfortFood: He manages to make Kamui eat his homemade and ''excellent'' food when he's in a VERY low point, and Arashi compliments him on it since it means he's helping Kamui to get better from his terrible ordeals.
* ChivalrousPervert: Flirty, kinda irresponsible, has a bit of a roving eye for ladies ([[BiTheWay and Kamui]]). But he's also a loyal friend and an effective fighter, and he genuinely cares for everyone around him and specially his dear Arashi.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Downplayed example since he's not really an idiot. Mess with Kamui or Arashi however and you'll see a demon come out.
* GuardianEntity: Can summon a ''goho doji'' to assist him in the battle.
* TheIdiotFromOsaka: Toyed with. He ''is'' brash, sometimes dorky and considered to be kinda crass sometimes, but people don't seem to think he's actively stupid. Not to mention the fact that he's a powerful fighter capable of casting quite powerful holy spells (like a ''goho doji'') mean that he's laidback and cheery, [[BewareTheSillyOnes but very capable of being serious when needed.]]
* KansaiRegionalAccent. Which comes from the fact that the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koyasan Kouya shrine]] is located in Wakayama, one of the prefectures in the Kansai area.
* TheLancer: To Kamui.
* LoveAtFirstSight: A weirdly enforced example. He decides that [[spoiler: if he ''is'' destined to die for the sake of a woman, it better be for a pretty one]]; he's impressed by Arashi's AloofDarkHairedGirl looks, so he decides she should be the one and approaches her, and as the story progresses they fall in love for real.
* NiceGuy: And this is one of '''the''' reasons Arashi falls for him.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Many times in battle. You wouldn't think that this super happy guy is a powerhouse in battle? You're wrong.
%% * PluckyComicRelief: An effective one.
* SexyPriest: Despite being a Buddhist monk, he still qualifies.
* SupremeChef: Is seen cooking in the anime (and teaching Arashi to do so).
* ShockAndAwe: A good part of his powers are chanellized through lighting bolts.
%% * WarriorMonk

!!Arashi Kishu
->Voiced by: Creator/EmiShinohara (JP, film and CD dramas), Creator/RyokaYuzuki (JP, TV series), Teresa Gallagher (EN, film), Lia Sargent (EN, TV series), Elisa Beuter (Spain)

[[AloofDarkHairedGirl Beautiful but dark]], [[IceQueen frigid and distant]], this LadyOfWar is one of the first to arrive in Tokyo and meet the Princess Hinoto.

Orphaned at a young age, she was found in the streets and then raised by {{Miko}} priestesses (who actually were the friends of her MissingMom, a former comrade of them) and eventually became the Hidden Priestess of the Ise temple. A very skilled swordswoman with the ability to
[[PersonOfHolding summon her sword from her left hand]]. She initially coldly rejects the rather forward propositions of Sorata but, like Kamui, [[DefrostingIceQueen she gradually warms up to him]] and reciprocates. But consummating their love implied [[spoiler: losing her powers and [[DeathBySex sealing up her lover's fate]], [[GenerationXerox like it apparently happened to her own mother in the past]].]]. Ultimately, she performs [[spoiler: a massive FaceHeelTurn so [[LoveMakesYouEvil she could untie Sorata from his obligations of protecting her]] and thus dying for her]].

In the anime, [[spoiler: she goes to the Dragons of Earth of her own will]] but in the manga [[spoiler: Dark Hinoto's [[MoreThanMindControl machinations]] are the cause of her betrayal]]. [[spoiler: In the anime, however, she comes back to the Dragons of Heaven after Sorata dies for her anyway.]] Her terminal fate is different in the film than in the TV series: [[spoiler: Sorata fulfills his destiny and dies for her in battle, but then Fuma kills her too]].


Tropes associated with Arashi Kishu:

%% * ActionGirl
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: She has the traditional image of a beautiful miko and is very cold and detached at first. Sorata falls for her attitude.
* CulturedBadass: Quite well versed in the mannerisms of the ideal Japanese lady.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Thanks to Sorata's upbeat personality and witnessing how shit goes down the fan around their circle.
* EmotionlessGirl: Initially. She only has one expression which is looking very serious. Considering that she spent most of her time in the Ise Shrine, it's possible that she doesn't interact with people outside her social circle.
* HerHeartWillGoOn: [[spoiler: Specially in the TV series. There was no other way for it to end actually. It also has a side dish of SelfFulfillingProphecy.]]
%% * HimeCut
* {{Keigo}}: Her speech patterns are extremely polite, and in the CD-dramas she uses very old-fashioned words while writing a letter to her adoptive mother, the lead {{Miko}} of Ise Jingun.
%% * LadyOfWar
* {{Miko}}: And from Ise Jingun, one of the most famous shrines in the whole country.
* OrphansOrdeal: Her early childhood was tough to say the least, as [[spoiler: after her parents's early deaths, she spent a while as a StreetUrchin until the Ise priestesses found her and took her to the shrine.]]
* {{Protectorate}}: Of Sorata, whether she agrees to or not. [[spoiler: She extends this to him, which is the basis for her FaceHeelTurn.]]
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Her relationship with the cheerful and sweet Sorata spits in the face of AllGirlsWantBadBoys.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: What she becomes with time after interacting with the Seven Seals.
* VirginPower: In the manga, she loses her powers [[spoiler: upon making love with Sorata]]. It should be noted that [[spoiler: her MissingMom, also a {{Miko}} from Isse Jingun, [[GenerationXerox went through the same process]] after she ran away from Ise with Arashi's father (a university student) and lost her virginity to him.]]

!!Subaru Sumeragi
[[caption-width-right:225:Subaru Sumeragi as he looks in X for the majority of the manga - and then how he looks near the end of the manga.]]
->Voiced by: Issei Miyazaki (JP, film and CD dramas), Creator/TomokazuSugita (JP, TV series), William Dufris (EN, film), Creator/DaveWittenberg (EN, TV series), Ángel de Gracia (Spain, film), Dani Albiac (Spain, TV series)

Like his ArchNemesis, Seishirou Sakurazuka, he hails from another Creator/{{CLAMP}} work: ''Manga/TokyoBabylon'' where his origins are explained with more details. Appearing as a stock {{Bishonen}}, he mourns his dead sister Hokuto, who was killed by Seishirou.

Unlike the other Dragons of Heaven, he is rather reluctant to join the group and mostly goes on his own story arc that is actually the end of the one he started during ''Manga/TokyoBabylon''. Nevertheless, he significantly helped out during Kamui's massive AngstComa and succeeded in healing his soul and bringing him back, becoming a sort-of BigBrotherMentor to him from then on. His [[FinalBattle final showdown]] with Seishirou Sakurazuka leads to tons of HoYay and FoeYay. In battle, he uses a mix of soul magic and arcana that he channels in special paper cards.

His end is very different, depending on the media. In the Manga, [[spoiler: he inherits the powers and responsibility of the Sakurazukamori]]; in the film [[spoiler: both die]] and in the TV-series [[spoiler:their relationship is established and he ends up in a catatonic state for having killed his lover, but he ultimately gets better]].


Tropes associated with Subaru Sumeragi

* AgentPeacock: He's still gentle, pretty, soft spoken and kind - but as the world is ending, he is forced to fight to preserve it.
* AngstComa: In the anime, [[spoiler: he falls into this few after killing Seishirou. With some prodding from Hokuto's soul, he wakes up right before Kamui and Fuuma's final duel.]]
%% * AngstySurvivingTwin: And how
%% * BadassLongcoat: As seen above
* BigBrotherMentor: To Kamui, very much so. Once he helps Kamui deal with the trauma of [[spoiler: Kotori's death and Fuuma's FaceHeelTurn]], they become quite close, and in the anime this becomes so strong that [[spoiler: once he returns from his post-Seishirou's death AngstComa, he helps Kamui in his last fight and almost goes TakingTheBullet for him.]]
* {{Bishonen}}: Several other characters openly state how good looking he is - and it's true!
* BrokenAce: He doesn't even want to, but when he does his skill is incredible; his magic powers have improved even more and even his fellow teammates, extremely powerful themselves, are seriously in awe of his skill. Sadly, his severe emotional angst and horribly broken heart thanks to Seishirou take away from his true ass-kicking abilities.
* CherryBlossoms: Part of his magic takes this form, very much like the Sakurazukamori's.
* DemotedToExtra: In the movie, he and Seishirou [[TogetherInDeath kill each other off]] [[DroppedABridgeOnHim rather... fast and unceremoniously]] in the opening scene.
* DestructiveRomance ''and'' StarCrossedLovers: With Seishirou.
* EyeScream: Upon battling Fuuma. [[spoiler: It turns out that Subaru's Wish was related to this.]]
* HeartbrokenBadass: Seishirou's betrayal really did a number on him.
* IneffectualLoner: Subverted. He is actually effectual, and later he bonds with Kamui yet never fully becomes a part of the group.
* LetsGetDangerous: He is nice and soft, but when he's thinking straight, is also an extremely formidable opponent.
%% * MagicalQueer
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Towards Seishirou. In most of his fights, it would always be Seishirou and he only got to fight Fuuma once. In fact, Fuuma saw this as his wish [[spoiler:which is to face Seishirou]].
* {{Onmyodo}}: Leader of the Sumeragi clan, the main onmyodo family in Japan. Naturally, it is his specialty.
* PrettyBoy: Subaru's one of CLAMP's most pretty characters and in X, he is always more beautiful than he is handsome, but this is made more apparent when [[spoiler: he grows out his hair longer, reminiscent of his teenage haircut after he becomes the new Sakurazukamori.]] He looks even more lovely and delicate than ever.
* PsychicNosebleed: Has one when [[spoiler: he drives into Kamui's mind to help him return to consciousness]]; being hit with a psychic backlash coming from [[spoiler: Kamui's bitter memories]] causes Subaru to bleed from his ears.
* SmokingIsCool: Subverted: When 'Seishirou' does it, it's cool. When Subaru does it, he gets lectured about the health risks -- by [[DeadpanSnarker Seishirou]] himself, nonetheless.
* StraightGay: Just like his [[NotSoDifferent lover]], he has no flamboyant CampGay mannerisms.
%% ** BadassGay
* TallDarkAndHandsome: More pretty than he is handsome, but still qualifies with his raven black hair and beautiful eyes.
* TookALevelInCynic: Back in ''Manga/TokyoBabylon'' he was an AllLovingHero [[UsedToBeASweetKid sweet child]] who was willing to risk death to save (often {{Jerkass}}) strangers]] he never knew personally. After the tragic events of that manga, [[TookALevelInJerkass Subaru has became quite cynical and hesitant to to suffer for the sake of others]] (especially strangers out to do harm). However [[JerkWithAHeartofGold he's still willing to fight to defend the weak and innocent]]; he's just no longer a [[AllLovingHero willing martyr]] that he was in ''Tokyo Babylon''.
* TookALevelInBadass: Remember that shy, frail-looking kid from ''Tokyo Babylon''? He '''always''' was badass, technically speaking. He just changed his attitude after all the BreakTheCutie, and now is one of the most powerful members of the whole cast.
%% * YaoiGuys: With Seishirou. They're one of CLAMP's "soulmate" couples.

!!Karen Kasumi
->Voiced by: Creator/MamiKoyama (JP, film and CD dramas), Creator/YokoSoumi (JP, TV series), Creator/TomokoKaneda (JP, child), Toni Barry (EN, film), Creator/WendeeLee (EN, TV series), Esther Solans (Spain, film), Azucena Díaz (Spain, TV series)

A devoted Catholic [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold call-girl]], Karen appears sporadically at first before taking a more active role in the plot. She appears as a redhead bombshell who always smiles and supports the Dragons of the Heaven as much as she can.[[PlayingWithFire Gifted with pyrotechnics]], she is usually aloof towards everyone despite her benevolent disposition and her sensitivity. She forms an [[UnrequitedLove unrequited crush]] on Seiichiro Aoki and never acts on it out of respect for his wife Shimako and child Yuuka.

In the anime she eventually [[spoiler: sacrifices herself to save Seiichiro from Yuto but [[TakingYouWithMe dying with their enemy]] ]], while she still lives on in the manga, and in the movie [[spoiler: she also pulls a TakingYouWithme -- but with Shougo Asagi instead.]]


Tropes associated with Karen Kasumi:

* AbusiveParents: Her mentally unstable [[TheFundamentalist fundamentalist]] mother, who viewed her powers as a sign of demonic ties. Fortunately, she was later taken in by [[GoodShepherd a kindly priest]] who allowed her to see her powers as a gift from God.
* CoolBigSis: Often seen as such by the younger Seals.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Downplayed. Whenever she is seen on the street in her work clothes, she goes without shoes, though still with her panties. This is probably due to practical reasons, as her work footwear is probably high-heeled and thus not very fit for hopping from roof to roof.
* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: Particularly interesting for being a hooker who not only has a heart of gold, but is also a Catholic.
* Japanese Christian: A devout Catholic.
* FieryRedhead: Averted for the most part, though she still can have quite of a personality when she wants. Her powers, on the other hand, are literally fiery.
* OddFriendship - ParentalSubstitute: Becomes something of a mother figure to [[spoiler: Nataku]] in the manga, apparently because [[spoiler: she looks like the mother of his past self, Kazuki.]] [[spoiler: And he ends up dying for her.]]
* PlayingWithFire: Her signature power.
* TheSixthRanger: Was the last to join the Seals.
* TakingYouWithMe: Attempted [[spoiler: and ultimately consummated]], with [[spoiler: Yuto in the TV series and with Shogo in the film.]] In the first case [[spoiler: it looked like the trope ''would'' be averted with Yuuto barely escaping and Karen dying next to Aoki... but it was ultimately played straight, with Yuuto perishing soon after his escape.]]
* UnrequitedLove: Towards Aoki, who cares for her greatly but not in that way.
%% * ZettaiRyouiki: With lingerie!

!!Yuzuriha Nekoi
->Voiced by: Creator/{{Yukana}} (JP, film and CD dramas), Creator/KumiSakuma (JP, TV series), Anne-Marie Lawless (EN, film), Creator/PhileceSampler (EN, TV series), Berta Cortés (Spain, film), Creator/CarmenAmbros (Spain, TV series)

A petite, [[TheIngenue fresh and naive]] 14 years-old girl that often lightens up the mood and is never seen without her spirit dog, Inuki, that is invisible to regular humans.

Bullied all her childhood long because no one could see her dog but her, she has sworn to never accept a man who couldn't see her pet. Ironically, the first man to see Inuki is none other than a Dragon of Earth: Shiryu Kusanagi. [[LoveAtFirstSight She immediately falls for him]]. She can turn Inuki into a sword when in battle and her pet will do anything to protect her. Upon battling Satsuki Yatoji in the anime, she loses her dog and [[HeroicBSOD gets horribly depressed]]. After getting a HannibalLecture from Fuma and Satsuki, [[spoiler:she is eventually able to revive Inuki while Fuma steps down]].

In the film, [[spoiler: she dies along with Yuto and Kusanagi, in Kamui's arms]]. In the anime, [[spoiler: both Kusanagi and her survive after Kusanagi's HeelFaceTurn and it is hinted that they remain together]].


Tropes associated with Yuzuriha Nekoi:

* ActionGirl / FauxActionGirl: Played with. While she does have power, she typically ends needing being saved by another character even in one-to-one battles. Then again, she is significantly younger than the rest of Dragons of Heaven, so she is much less experienced in the matter.
* AdaptationalWimp: The anime greatly increases her rookie status, taking out a lot of both her maturity and power. Most notably, in the manga she is able to fight Satsuki to a standstill the next battle after the encounter which resulted in [[spoiler:the first Inuki]]'s death.
* ABoyAndHisX: By tradition, the Nekoi family form lifelong partnerships with ''inugami'' like Yuzuriha's Inuki.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Was shunned by her schoolmates all her childhood, long due to her special abilities. [[AngstWhatAngst She]] didn't mind ''that'' much.
* AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: In the anime, to Kusanagi. [[spoiler: Helps a lot in his HeelFaceTurn.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: In the anime and in the manga, Fuma meant to kill her but her will to live alone was enough to repel him [[spoiler: and she could eventually revive Inuki.]]
%% * FriendToAllLivingThings
* GenkiGirl: A mild version of this. She is cheerful and happy-go-lucky, but not to the point of being unable to focus on serious things.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: With Kusanagi, who is easily twice her weight and towers high over her.
* {{Joshikousei}}: Subverted. Despite being involved with an older guy, her schoolgirl status, although obvious, is never brought up as part of why he likes her, nor is it ever alluded to otherwise in story.
* MeaningfulName: An invoked subversion: the "neko" in "Nekoi" means "cat," and her family uses it deliberately to obfuscate their affiliation with dog spirits.
* MagicalGirl: Variation. She has all the characteristics but doesn't use that kind of magic.
* MayDecemberRomance: With Kusanagi, who is more than twice her age.
* MeetCute: Her first meeting with Kusanagi in the anime and the manga fits this, slow motion, white feathers of fate and all. Also a case of WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic.
* NaiveEverygirl: She thinks that being part of the Seven Seals is like being a superhero and saving the world. It's actually very complicated most especially when she lost Inuki and later faced Fuuma.
* PluckyGirl: So much that [[spoiler: a new Inuki is born]] ''and'' [[spoiler: Fuuma refuses to kill her]] specifically thanks to her strong will.
* SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack: Subverted mid-story. She wears it all the time but Kusanagi buys her a new set of clothes once hers are too dirty to be worn.
* SproutingEars: Perhaps due to her relationship with dogs.
* TooDumbToLive: In the movie, after finding a random stranger who casually can see her spirit dog, she feels the impulse to tell it to him, and even identify him as a Dragon of Earth on his face. It only tips the stranger that she is a Dragon of Heaven, and it moves him to attack her and kick her ass in the worst possible moment.

!!Seiichiro Aoki
->Voiced by: Creator/HideyukiTanaka (JP, film and CD dramas), Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa (JP, TV series), David Harris (EN, film), Creator/SteveBlum (EN, TV series), Eduard Itchart (Spain, film), Antonio Pujós (Spain, TV series)

The least seen member of the Dragons of Heaven, thirty-something Seiichiro Aoki is the oldest of them. Married with a child, he is also a Wind Master who tutored his nephew [[MauveShirt Daisuke Saiki]].

After discreetly and amiably divorcing his wife Shimako in order to protect her and their child Yuuka from the disaster of the upcoming battles, he works as a journalist and manga editor in his daily life. He bounds specifically with Karen upon interviewing her for a manga and comes to help her when she goes in his stead to battle Yuto Kigai, [[spoiler: alas to no avail]]. He uses his power over wind in battle.

He appears as a tall, handsome brown-haired man in his mid-30's with glasses. [[Manga/CardcaptorSakura Does that physical description look familiar?]] In the movie [[spoiler: he dies in a TakingYouWithMe fashion alongside Nataku]], but he's still alive in other media.


* BlowYouAway: His signature power.
%% ** DramaticWind: Due to the above.
%% ** RazorWind
* ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies: Why he left Shimako and Yuuka.
%% * {{Megane}}
* NiceGuy: Mostly easy-going and non-aggressive. [[BewareTheNiceOnes Unless you push his buttons]], that is.
* SatelliteCharacter: The least developed of all Seven Seals. We aren't even showed his family until the very end, and only for a moment.
* ShipTease: With Karen.
%% * TallDarkAndHandsome
* TeamDad: Subverted. He is the older and most fatherly of the group, but he rarely takes the drive.
* YamatoNadeshiko: A RareMaleExample, and considering that his design spawned [[Manga/CardcaptorSakura the most straight-up CLAMP example of one]]... yeah.
* YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry: A very good example. He himself states that it's ''very'' hard to make him angry, [[BewareTheNiceOnes but when you do]]...


[[folder: Dragons of Earth: The Seven Angels]]

!!Yuto Kigai
->Voiced by: Creator/KazuhikoInoue (JP, film and CD dramas), Michiaki Furuya (JP, TV series), Nigel Whitney (EN, film), Ezra Weisz (EN, TV series), Ángel de Gracia (Spain, film), Jordi Hurtado (Spain, TV series)

A [[BewareTheNiceOnes very mannerly]] and well-groomed blond Public Service clerk, Yuto is one of the most [[AffablyEvil amoral]] [[DeadpanSnarker and cynical]] of the Dragons of Earth. Not much is known about him except that he is pretty [[CardCarryingVillain happy to work for the Dragons of Earth]]. Additionally, he playfully flirts with his protegee Satsuki and sleeps regularly with Kanoe. In battle, he uses a long rope with a dagger at the tip that he uses [[WhipItGood like a whip]].

His end is pretty similar in each of the three media. [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath And none of them are pretty]]. (Except the manga, that is. For now, at least...)


Tropes associated with Yuto Kigai:

* AffablyEvil: Very well-mannered and proper- one of the nicest, friendliest people you have ever met, yet quite amoral.
* BadassandChildDuo: He's the badass and Satsuki is the teenage girl.
* BadassInANiceSuit: As said above, a very fancy one suit, usually pink.
* BadassLongcoat: Which makes him look like a pimp [[LampshadeHanging according to Sorata]]...
* BadassBureaucrat: Works in the public service, uses water and his WeaponOfChoice.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Too nice and polite to be good.
* CardCarryingVillain: A variation; he is not exactly evil, but he is knowingly above good and evil, and he enjoys his position.
* ChivalrousPervert: Sleeps with Kanoe and flirts with Satsuki, but doesn't take advantage of the latter's crush on him.
%% * DeadpanSnarker
* TheDragon: To Kanoe.
* FriendlyEnemy: Shares praises and jokes with an enemy who has just met, and that's only the beginning.
* MakingASplash: His true specialty, which he reveals very late in the manga and admits not having used it in a long time, is water magic. (Interestingly, this power was utilized originally by Shogo Asagi in the movie, which was released before Yuto debuted it in the manga; in the same movie, he instead uses his powered daggers as his main weapon.)
* MoralityPet: Subverted. His CD drama track reveals that Yuto has a little sister named Tomoe (in fact, said drama is presented as a message in her phone's answering machine), but even when the guy ''[[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes does]]'' [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes genuinely love her]] and [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies shows remorse for not being in contact with her]], he still will continue in his villain ways.
* RealMenWearPink: Doesn't care about wearing pink clothes.
* ReplacementGoldfish: Satsuki seems to be, for him, a stand-in for Tomoe. [[spoiler: Though his feelings ''may'' have been a little less platonic in the anime series, as he dies remembering one of their chats.]]
* SubordinateExcuse: To Kanoe.
* WhipItGood: His WeaponOfChoice is a powered combination of sai dagger and whip, which is also his main power in the film.

!!Seishirou Sakurazuka
->Voiced by: Creator/ToruFurusawa (JP, film and CD dramas), Otoya Kawano (JP, TV series), Garrick Hagon (EN, film), Creator/DaveMallow (EN, TV series), Eduard Itchart (Spain, film), Jordi Pineda (Spain, TV series)

Along with Subaru, he hails from ''Manga/TokyoBabylon'' and plays the end of his own story in ''X/1999''. A one-eyed {{Bishonen}} and BadassInANiceSuit, seldom seen without his CoolShades, he and Subaru are established YaoiGuys.

Like Subaru, Seishirou is not actually close to his fellows and pretty much follows his own path. However, his role in the awakening of Kamui and Fuma was determinant. He is also the murderer of Hokuto Sumeragi, Subaru's sister and holds an [[OedipusComplex interesting]] relationship with his mom, Setsuka. He mostly takes on Subaru, his former lover and current ArchNemesis, and uses an evil version of his powers which often includes CherryBlossoms.

He dies [[spoiler: telling Subaru [[DyingDeclarationOfLove his true feelings for him]]. Or so we suspect.]]


Tropes associated with Seishirou Sakurazuka:

* AffablyEvil: A little like Yuto.
* ArchNemesis: To Subaru.
%% ** BadassGay
%% ** BadassInANiceSuit
%% ** BadassLongcoat
%% * BuryYourGays
* CherryBlossoms: A motif of the Sakurazuka magic, even more than the Sumeragi one.
* CoolShades: Tends to wear some of those in the series, in a departure from his regular ones in ''Tokyo Babylon''.
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: [[spoiler:Subaru's, in all continuities.]]
* DissonantSerenity: Very little is able to faze this guy, not even dying.
* DyingDeclarationOfLove: [[spoiler: Dies upon declaring his love to Subaru. ''Possibly''.]]
* EyeScream: The reason for the CoolShades.
* EvilCounterpart: To Subaru.
%% * FourEyesZeroSoul: To a degree, considering his CoolShades.
%% * MommyIssues: Oh, ''Seishirou''.
** OedipusComplex: His relationship with his mom, especially in the CD dramas. No evidence about sexual encounters, thankfully, but the SubText is ''heavy''. [[spoiler: And he DID kiss her on the lips when he killed her, in the manga]].
* SelfMadeOrphan: Apparently standard practice in his family, considering the Sakurazukamori stuff. More exactly, Setsuka says that the Sakurazukamori can only be killed by the person they love the most, and who will become the Sakurazukamori in their place; in Setsuka's case, this person was Seishirou, so...
* SerialKiller: What the Sakurazukamori does.
%% * StraightGay
%% * TallDarkAndSnarky
* TorsoWithAView: His signature style of murder, done with his bare hand.
* TheOtherDarrin: Goes through this ''twice''. Creator/TakehitoKoyasu voices him in ''Manga/TokyoBabylon'', then Creator/ToruFurusawa succeeds him in the ''X'' movie and CD dramas, and finally Otoya Kawano succeeds ''both'' of them in the TV series.
%% * YaoiGuys: With Subaru.

!!Satsuki Yatoji
->Voiced by: Creator/KotonoMitsuishi (JP, film and CD dramas), Creator/HoukoKuwashima (JP, TV series), Anne Marie Zola (EN, film), Creator/KarenStrassman (EN, TV series), Elisabet Bargalló (Spain, film), Roser Vilches (Spain, TV series)

A nerdy-looking EmotionlessGirl, highschool/college-aged Satsuki is the youngest of all the Dragons of Earth and [[TheSmurfettePrinciple the only female of the group]] aside of Kanoe. She always looks serious and is absolutely uninterested by the mundane world, finding solace only with her computers.

[[TheOjou Born in a very wealthy family]], she manifested her powers [[CreepyChild at an]] [[ChildProdigy early age]] and can connect herself directly to computers by letting them invade her body with their cables. She spends most of her time connected to her giant PC, the Beast, that she got from Kanoe and that [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul stripped her from the last remnants of interest in humans]]. She thoroughly lectures Yuzuriha upon battling her and [[spoiler: kills her spirit dog when she cannot give her a satisfactory answer]]. She also develops feelings for Yuto who is amused by her crush, even though he openly sleeps with their shared boss Kanoe and doesn't really encourage her advances. This drives the Beast [[GreenEyedMonster mad with envy]]. She uses the Beast for reconnaissance purposes and uses him to control electric cables as offensive weapons.

In the movie and anime, Satsuki dies upon trying to help Yuto (against Fuuma in the first, against Seiichiro and Karen in the second), impaled by the many cables of the Beast who [[IfICantHaveYou refuses to lose her to anyone]].


Tropes associated with Satsuki Yatoji:

* AdaptationalHeroism: The anime gives her a friendly moment with Yuzuriha of all people, even if she apparently didn't know she was a Dragon of Heaven. Her manga and movie selves are much more cold and asocial.
* AdaptationDyeJob: Has a yellow SkunkStripe in her hair in the manga and movie, but lacks it in the TV series.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: The closest to affection that she ''ever'' seems to feel is for Yuto, who's much older and seems to treat her as a stand in for his sister Tomoe.
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: She's pretty, dark-haired, and emotionless.
* AmbiguousDisorder: She vastly prefers computers over interacting with other people, and seems to be annoyed when people try to interact with her. She also has a distinct LackOfEmpathy as shown by her interactions with Yuzuriha. Asperger's?
* CyberneticsEatYourSoul: And in her case, your body as well.
* DarkActionGirl: Satsuki doesn't fight with her hands and legs, but she can control massive cables VERY effectively if she wishes to do so. I.e., in TheMovie she uses said cables to ''gravely'' injure Sorata during her fight against him and Arashi.
* EmotionlessGirl: Only in appearance. She definitely feels emotion, but her complete disinterest towards human beings makes her look cold.
%% * EvilGenius
* {{Expy}}: Of [[Anime/SerialExperimentsLain Lain Iwakura]], both in character and skills. She even resembled Lain when younger.
%% * HollywoodNerd-Type II.
* KickTheDog [[spoiler: She literally kills Inuki in front of Yuzuriha when she failed to answer why killing humans is "bad".]]
* LonersAreFreaks: Subverted. Despite her dismissive behaviour, she is appreciated by her fellows and other people in general.
* MotiveRant: Upon battling Yuzuriha.
%% * {{Meganekko}}
* TheOjou: A huge IceQueen type.
* ReplacementGoldfish: ''May'' be one for Yuuto, if we take his CD drama track in consideration.
* SelfMadeOrphan: In the TV series, she kills her [[EducationMama Education Papa]] because he controls her life WAY too much, using her powers to arrange his death in a car accident.
%% * TheStoic
* NotSoStoic: In the movie, she screams and snaps when [[spoiler: Yuto is brutally killed by Fuuma.]] She also does this in the TV series [[spoiler: before dying.]]
* TheSpock: A quite classical example.
* {{Technopath}}: Able to execute supernatural feats with technology.

!!Nataku aka Kazuki Toujou
->Voiced by: Creator/RicaMatsumoto (JP, film and CD dramas), Creator/MotokoKumai (JP, TV series), Don Fellows (EN, film), Creator/MonaMarshall (EN, TV series), Aleix Estadella (Spain, film), Teresa Manresa (Spain, TV series)

A [[BarbieDollAnatomy genderless]], cybernetic clone of the dead granddaughter of a local scientist, Nataku has pretty much [[FlatCharacter no personality]] other than that of a lost child. [[spoiler: Or so we're led to believe.]] He appears as your usual white-haired {{Bishonen}}.

He is first seen as being sustained in a glass chamber. After heading out to steal the Shinken from Kyogo Monou, he eventually joins the Dragons of Earth. Upon seeing just how much Fuma ressembles his father (the son of his creator), he immediately takes him as a father figure and loves him unconditionally. He fights several times against Kamui, Yuzuriha and [[spoiler: a [[HeelFaceTurn switched]] Kusanagi]], and in the manga he also fights [[spoiler: Karen and Aoki]]. He mainly uses [[ImprobableWeaponUser fabric tendrils in battle.]]

He eventually dies upon merging with Fuma and becoming part of him to heal him [[spoiler: from the damage done by Sorata upon defending Arashi]], in the anime. He and Aoki kill each other in battle in the film, and in the manga [[spoiler: he dies at Fuma's hands while shielding Karen - partially because he interpretes His Only Wish as partly dying by Fuuma's own hand ("the hand of the person he loves the most aka 'his father figure") and partly protecting Karen ("the person most important to him aka his mother figure", due to Nataku and Karen [[OddFriendship having sorta bonded right before his death]].)]]
Tropes associated with Nataku:

* BarbieDollAnatomy: Justified. He is supposed to be genderless due to his GenderFlip.
%% * EmotionlessBoy
* FacialMarkings: Has little purple marks in his forehead.
* FlatCharacter: Literal, due to his status as a clone.
* GenderFlip: Was originally a girl but was turned into a boyish (but still genderless) figure upon being cloned.
* {{Hermaphrodite}} / NoBiologicalSex: He clearly lacks both female breasts and male genitalia.
* IllGirl: Kazuki Tonjou, his original persona, was a very sickly little girl who was also [[DaddysGirl very attached to her scientist father]]. Since she was destined to become a Dragon of Earth [[PosthumousCharacter but died of illness before her time]], when Nataku was created as Kazuki's clone by her MadScientist grandpa, Dr. Tojou told him about Kazuki's truncated destiny as a Dragon of the Earth and sent him off to Kanoe and Co. so he could fulfill it in her place.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: He fights by telekinetically controlling his mantle scarf, which he can use to erupt psychic blasts.
* MeaningfulRename: [[spoiler: Sort of. When Nataku reveals his origins to Karen during their fight, she takes to call him "Kazuki" aka the name of his past original self. In fact, after his death, [[SayMyName she screams "KAZUKI!" out loud]], and as Fuuma [[CradlingYourKill cradles Nataku's lifeless body]] and explains his wish, he also calls him "Kazuki".]]
* MindOverMatter: Has psychic powers.
* PietaPlagiarism: Twice. [[spoiler: Fuuma cradles him while explaining his wish, then Karen hugs him while mourning.]]
* TakingTheBullet: [[spoiler: His manga death. More exactly, Fuuma puts his arm through Nataku's torso when he's shielding Karen with his own body, and the injuries Nataku sustains end up killing him.]]
* TorsoWithAView: In the movie, he has the skill to kill people with a hand through their torso, just like Seishiro.
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: In the manga, it turns out he isn't ''that'' emotionless. [[spoiler: Specially during his fight/talk with Karen, where she listens to his backstory and tells him that yes, he has a heart, and he should follow it. This leads Nataku to shield Karen from Fuuma -- at the cost of his own life; as said above, Fuuma interprets a part of Nataku's wish as "to die at his hands."]]

!!Shiyu Kusanagi
->Voiced by: Creator/JojiNakata (JP, film and CD dramas), MasakiAizawa (JP, TV series), Jeff Harding (EN, film), Creator/JamiesonPrice (EN, TV series), Aleix Estadella (Spain, film), Alfonso Vallés (Spain, TV series)

The bulky, towering and Air Force agent is actually a TechnicalPacifist who is inherently linked with the spirit of Earth. His characterisation is the most uneven between all three media of ''X/1999''.

In both the anime and manga, he is actually the [[MinionWithAnFInEvil least aggressive and asocial]] of all the Dragons of Earth. He is the most reluctant to participate in the end of the world but joins in regardless even though he doesn't share his views with everyone else. His enemy Yuzuriha Nekoi develops romantic feelings for him.

In the anime, [[KnightInShiningArmor he protects Yuzuriha from his fellows]] various times and ultimately [[DefectingForLove switches side]]. In the manga, she confesses to him, and he accepts her feelings, though he doesn't openly return them.

In the film, he is [[AxCrazy the most aggressive and violent of all]] and is nothing more than a BloodKnight who simply wants to kill the Dragons of Heaven. His relationship with Yuzuriha doesn't exist. He ends up dying ''bloodily'' at the hands of [[spoiler: the recently awakened Fuuma.]]

In battle, he mostly uses brute force and is able to shatter the ground open with one punch.
Tropes associated with Kusanagi Shiyu:

* AdaptationalVillainy: The movie turns him from the most human and level-headed of the Dragons of Earth into the most violent and unhinged.
* AxCrazy: In the movie.
* AntiVillain: Is actually the least anti-social of the Angels.
%% * BigOlEyebrows: And how!
* BloodKnight: In the movie.
* BruiserWithASoftCenter: Although the physically strongest of the Seven Angels, even more than Fuma himself, as well as being able to shatter the ground open with one punch, he is a very kind-hearted man indeed.
* TheBrute: Subverted. Seems fit for the role, given that he is huge, strong and direct, but lacks the cruelty.
* DefectingForLove: In the TV-series and [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in the manga, towards Yuzuriha. Not at all in the film.
* DemotedToExtra: In the film.
%% * GentleGiant: Except in the film.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: With Yuzuriha. A lot!
* LoveRedeems: He reciprocates Yuzuriha's feelings, even if they are not clearly romantic in nature, and they are a bif factor in his HeelFaceTurn.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Feels no real animosity towards the Seven Seals nor towards humanity as a whole.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath [[spoiler: Subverted. He survives. (Though he ''almost'' died in the TV series.)]]
* TechnicalPacifist: Except in the film, he is not that much into fighting despite being a soldier.
* TokenGoodTeammate: He is the only Dragon of Earth who is not evil or psychologically damaged.

!!Kakyo Kuzuki
->Voiced by: Creator/YujiUeda (JP), Creator/TerrenceStone (EN), Antonio Pujós (Spain)

A frail and comatose guy that seldom comes to his senses in the real world and spends most of his time in [[AdventuresInComaland Comaland]] where he dreams about the future, a constant sad look on his face. A dreamseer like Hinoto, he was sequestrated for a long time by [[StrawmanPolitical ill-intentioned politicians]].

During one of his dreams, he meets Hokuto, Subaru's twin sister and falls in love with her. [[spoiler: Upon seeing her eventual fate in his dreams, in the anime he breaks out of his coma and tries to save her but is shot by his jailers and put in a never ending coma.]] He also befriends [[spoiler: Kotori]] in the dream space, [[spoiler: comforting her in her last minutes of life, possessing her fatally injured body so she won't be in pain, and then watching her soul go off to Heaven]])

In the manga, he is convinced to join the Dragons of Earth by Fuma after [[spoiler: trying to prevent the murder of Kotori.]] In the anime, [[spoiler: Fuma coerces him to manipulate Hinoto's dreams so as to mislead her predictions. But he eventually [[HeelFaceTurn turns on Fuma]] on the urgings of Kotori and Hokuto. He eventually dies peacefully in his sleep and leaves for Heaven with his beloved Hokuto.]]
Tropes associated with Kakyo Kuzuki:

* AdventuresInComaland: All the time.
* AscendedExtra: A roundabout example. In the manga he's among the last Dragons of Earth to appear, so much that TheMovie had Shougo to fill in the blanks. In the anime, however, he is both the narrator ''and'' TheProtagonist of the OVA, telling the viewers how his life has been and how he sees the world.
* {{Bishonen}}: To prove that Dragons of Earth have people in this sector as well.
* DisabilitySuperpower: Very much like Hinoto, he is bound to a bed aside from being a powerful dreamseer.
* DreamWeaver: The crux of his powers.
%% * TheFatalist
* ForcedIntoEvil: He serves Fuma under coercion, and in the anime, under physical threat, as he cannot fight back.
* IllBoy: Was already sickly, then was in a coma for years.
* InterGenerationalFriendship: Strikes one with [[spoiler: Kotori]], in the dream space. He goes as far as [[spoiler: possessing her body briefly as she dies to take her horrifying physical pain into himself ''and'' have some words with Fuuma, and then he says goodbye to her in the dream scape as she goes to Heaven, becoming the depositary of her FamousLastWords and a tender kiss on the cheek.]]
* LonelyRichKid: Born in a very rich and traditional family, and also kept in isolation by corrupt politicians due to his bad health and ''enormous'' dream seeing powers. Even worse in the OAV, when [[spoiler: for the first time ever he rebels against the GildedCage he's locked in to try dissuading Hokuto from deploying her ThanatosGambit... but he gets shot in the back and can barely witness her death at the hands of Seishirou. And from then on, he's comatose.]]
* ManInWhite: Wears white robes in the real world, and dresses in a white suit when in the dream space.
%% * MysteriousWaif: A rare ''male'' example.
* NonActionGuy: Due to his comatose state.
* PerpetualFrowner: Looks perpetually sad and desperate.
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: He and Hokuto mix it with StarCrossedLovers, and also are among [[TearJerker the saddest examples of the trope]].
** TogetherInDeath: What he wants the most is to join Hokuto. [[spoiler: In the TV series, he gets his wish.]]
* TokenGoodTeammate: Unlike most Dragons of Earth, he is not evil or ammoral, but quite the opposite.
* YouCantFightFate: He genuinly thinks so.

[[folder: Supporting Characters]]
!!Princess Hinoto
->Voiced by: Creator/YukoMinaguchi (JP, film and CD dramas), Creator/AyaHisakawa (JP, TV series), Stacey Jefferson (EN, film), Creator/BridgetHoffman (EN, TV series), Nuria Doménech (Spain, film), María Rosa Guillén (Spain, TV series)

A [[BlindSeer blind]] and crippled dreamseer, she is actually in charge of the whole political life of Tokyo and can see the future in her dreams. She appears as an [[EvilAlbino albino]] WomanInWhite that possesses a wide range of psychic abilities and some power over Shikigami magic.

Although Hinoto has never once failed in her predictions, she was initially unable to determine the eventual path Kamui would take, so she tried to influence him to side with the Dragons of Heaven but Kanoe informed Kamui about his possibility to choose between the two. She functions mainly as the Dragons of Heaven's MissionControl and is able to use spells to see outside her hidden place. She also constantly fighting her EnemyWithin [[spoiler: her Dark Self, that wishes to live on as a dreamseer and manipulates the group in order to ensure the world is destroyed in the end]].

In the manga, [[spoiler: Hinoto is [[WhatTheHellHero confronted directly by Sorata about her actions]], yet the outcome is (still) not clear.]] In the TV-series, [[spoiler: she commits suicide in order to stop her Dark Self from interfering with the fate of the Seven Seals]]. In the film, [[spoiler: Hinoto says goodbye to Kamui and teleports him to the Tokyo Tower so he can duel Fuma, then lets herself die as the Diet building collapses around her, Kanoe's lifeless body in her arms.]]
Tropes associated with Hinoto:

* BigGood: Commands and guides the Dragons of Heaven. [[spoiler:At least a part of her.]]
* BlessedWithSuck: She is a powerful dreamseer, but [[IllGirl her body simply can't keep up]] [[SuperpowerRussianRoulette with such tremendous powers.]]
* BlindSeer: She is not only blind, but also deaf and mute; she can interact with the world only through telepathy.
* CainAndAbel: With Kanoe.
* DisabilitySuperpower: A powerful DreamWeaver whose peripheral nervous system is barely functional.
* DreamWeaver: The most powerful and experienced of them, and the one for the Dragons of Heaven.
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler: In the film, she could've escaped from the collapsing Diet Building but chooses to not do so, saving Kamui's life and entrusting him with the rest of the Dragons of the Heaven's mission before she's crushed to death by the rubble falling on her, holding Kanoe's lifeless body in her arms.]]
* EnemyWithin: [[spoiler: Her Dark Self.]]
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Subverted in both ways. Her "princess" title is merely a honorific way to address her, and she definitely doesn't make everything better.
* EvilAlbino: Subverted as well. [[spoiler: She isn't ''inherently'' evil and, in the TV series, doesn't waver in killing herself to stop the actions of her Evil Self.]]
* FacialMarkings: Has a seal on her forehead as mark of her powers.
* JapanesePronouns: Very polite when she speaks, she refers to almost everyone with the outdated ''-dono'' pronoun.
* ManipulativeBitch: At some point, she hides several truths to Kamui in hopes to bring him to the Heaven's side. [[spoiler: Her Dark Self is this, through and through.]]
* MissionControl: What she is to the Dragons of Heaven.
%% * PsychicPowers: Which include...
%% ** DeflectorShields
%% ** DreamWalker
%% ** MySignificanceSenseIsTingling
* OlderThanTheyLook: She looks like a pre-teen, presumably for her condition, but is actually a older woman.
* OnlyOneName: Her second name, or Kanoe's, is never revealed.
* PsychicLink: Shares one with Kanoe, which allows them to trade ominousness.
%% ** {{Seers}}
%% ** {{Telepathy}}
%% ** TeleportersAndTransporters
* RapunzelHair: Her hair is absurdely long, reaching several feet behind her on the floor.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Is much older than what she seems.
* SuperpowerRussianRoulette: Having the biggest PsychicPowers in the canon does NOT make her any good, physically-wise.
* WaifProphet: Blind, deaf, mute, and crippled... Yes all of it.

->Voiced by: Atsuko Takahata (JP, film and CD dramas), Kaho Kouda (JP, TV series), Denica Fairman (EN, film), Creator/MaryElizabethMcGlynn (EN, TV series), Miriam Guilimany (Spain, film), Pilar Morales (Spain, TV series)

The Seven Angels's counterpart to Hinoto is actually her younger sister. She is the one responsible for bringing all of the Dragons of Earth together and helps them in their mission by providing them with headquarters and material. She is a tall, dark-haired FemmeFatale with the customary [[FemmeFatalons long nails]] to hint at her evil, and she works as the head secretary of the Diet (Japanese Congress).

Although being born in the same family as Hinoto, Kanoe isn't gifted with the power of dreamseeing but can enter the dreams of others. Hence, she was always treated [[TheUnFavourite as less important than her sister]]. She is mostly flirtatious and AffablyEvil towards her companions; she has an open affair with Yuto and [[LesYay flirts occasionally with Satsuki]]. Despite claiming to hate Hinoto, her sister's death seems to affect her all the same.

In the film, [[spoiler:Fuma kills her upon entering the FinalBattle, and she dies in a devastated Hinoto's arms while explaining her reasons.]]. In the TV series, [[spoiler:she lives on and mourns her sister]]. In the manga, [[spoiler: she is killed by Hinoto]].
Tropes associated with Kanoe:

* AbsoluteCleavage: Some of her attires.
* AdaptationalBadass: Her level of power depends on the continuity. In the manga and anime, she is just a DreamWalker and can only enter the dreams of others but not influence or see too much beyond, leaving those tasks to Kakyo; in the movie, however, as Kakyou doesn't exist in this continuity, she's a full-fledged DreamWeaver just like Hinoto.
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: Kanoe has black hair and light skin and isn't particularly close to anyone but her sister, Hinoto.
* BigBad: Initially, she is the nearest thing to a Bid Bad the show has, as she helps and leads the Dragons of Earth. Later, however, the job is passed to [[spoiler:Fuuma]].
* BiTheWay: Sleeps with Yuuto, flirts with Satsuki, is kinda handsy with ''both'' Monous in TheMovie... To our knowledge, her evil and/or morally grey actions aren't tied to her bisexuality so she doesn't count as DepravedBisexual.
* BloodyMurder: Rather "Bloody Abduction" In the movie, she has the ability to create portals to her dream dimension in the form of blood, which she uses to abduct Kotori.
* FacialMarkings: In the manga and movie, she has a seal on her forehead to mark her Dreamseer powers.
* FemmeFatale: Classy, regal, sultry voice and the obligatory [[FemmeFatalons long nails]].
* LoveMakesYouEvil: One of her motives in the film and the manga is to actually rescue Hinoto from her BlessedWithSuck condition. By ''destroying the world'', if needed.
* NoblewomansLaugh: A truly scary one.
* OnlyOneName: Like her sister.
* SexySecretary: Her day job.
* TheUnfavourite: According to her, Hinoto has always been considered better due to her ability as a dreamseer, which she lacks.

!!Tohru and Tokiko Magami
->Tohru is voiced by: Masako Ikeda (JP, film and CD dramas), Creator/KikukoInoue (JP, TV series), Liza Ross (EN, film), Creator/JulieAnnTaylor (EN, TV series)
->Tokiko is voiced by: Creator/MisaWatanabe (JP), Creator/PhileceSampler (EN), Creator/CarmenCalvell (Spain)

Kamui's mother and maternal aunt. They were membresses of the Magami clan, a once powerful family that is shrouded in mystery. Tohru left the Magami clan (including a pre-teen Tokiko) few after her highschool graduation, gave birth to Kamui, was close to the Monou family and left to Okinawa at some point; meanwhile, Tokiko balanced her work as a nurse with some spiritual deals. [[spoiler: Tohru's death is the trigger for Kamui's return to Tokyo, as he believes she was murdered...]]
Tropes associated with Tohru and Tokiko:

* BarrierMaiden: Both, but specially Tohru.
* BuryYourGays: Tohru, though it winds up being a delayed example.
* DisposableWoman: Both of them.
* KillItWithFire: [[spoiler: Tohru's body simply ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spontaneous_human_combustion started burning on its own]]'', since she was the BarrierMaiden for ''the Earth itself'' to keep global warming at bay.]]
* {{Meganekko}}: Tokiko. It's the only visible difference between the two sisters, to the point that as soon as she removes her glasses Kamui recognizes the resemblance and sees their faces superimposed over each other.
* PersonOfHolding: [[spoiler: Depending on the continuity, one of the Shinkens is born from one of them: Tohru in the movie and Tokiko from both manga and anime.]]
* SacrificialLamb: Again, ''both''.
* SchoolNurse: Tokiko works as the nurse in Kamui, Kotori and Fuuma's school.
* PosthumousCharacter: Tohru.
* TeenPregnancy: Possibly. Tohru left her family right after graduating from highschool (and when Tokiko was in junior-high).; Tokiko's memories of the last time they saw each other imply that Tohru either was already pregnant with Kamui or knew she'd have him soon.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Tohru, a devoted single mother who goes for the cold steel without hesitation. Also, both of her {{seiyuu}} (Masako Ikeda and Creator/KikukoInoue) are rather famous for voicing this kind of character.

!!Kyogo and Saya Monou
->Kyogo is voiced by: Creator/KoujiIshii (JP), Creator/MichaelMcConnohie (EN)
->Saya is voiced by: Creator/MichikoNeya (JP), Creator/BarbaraGoodson (EN)

Fuuma and Kotori's parents, who own and handle the Tokagushi Shinto shrine. Despite looking HappilyMarried, they actually got together to fulfill their destinies rather than for romantic love, and the reasonings behind said destinies are not exactly simple either.

Tropes associated with Kyogo and Saya:

* TheBeard: Kyogo was essentially this to Saya, though everyone (except the kids) knew the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavender_marriage marriage]] was a sham. [[UnderstandingBoyfriend He didn't seem to resent it.]]
* FamousLastWords: [[spoiler: Kyougo tried to use his own to tell Fuuma that he was the other Kamui, but couldn't finish.]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Kyougo''']]: "[[spoiler: Fuuma]], you... you are [[spoiler: Kamui]]'s..."
* {{Gorn}}: How [[spoiler: [[PersonOfHolding Saya]] ]] died, [[spoiler: by being ''dismembered'' while "giving birth" to the Shinken. In the manga, it happens in the backyard of the shrine; in the anime, it's during an urgent surgery.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Saya, specially in the manga. She knew that Tohru was destined to have the Shinken inside, but willingly took her place so Kamui wouldn't be left fully orphaned ''and'' to show her love for her.]]
* HideYourLesbians: Saya was in love with Tohru. She married Kyougo to fulfill her destiny. [[YouCantFightFate The]] ''[[YouCantFightFate three]]'' [[YouCantFightFate knew it]], and Saya even apologized to Kyougo for it since he ''did'' genuinely love her but she simply couldn't love him back in the same way - [[spoiler: right before she died]]. Tohru then left for Okinawa with little Kamui on tow because [[MyGreatestFailure she felt so guilty]] that she couldn't face the Monous afterwards.
* IncompatibleOrientation: Saya only loved Tohru, and Kyougo knew it.
* OurMermaidsAreDifferent: In the manga, [[spoiler: Kotori goes in one of her DreamWeaver trips and meets up with the spirit of Saya, [[http://kitsunetoneko.wordpress.com/2012/05/04/saya-monou-a-mermaid-of-sin/ who has been transformed into a butterfly-winged mermaid]].]]
* ReligiousBruiser ''and'' RetiredBadass: Kyougo is a quite strong fighter ''and'' a Shinto priest. [[spoiler: He's still killed by Nataku]].
* UnwantedSpouse: Kyougo technically ''did'' marry the woman he loved but remained as this since she was in love with someone else and he was very aware of what was going on.
-->'''Kyougo:''' Is it for Tohru-san? I knew… from the time you first came to Togakushi. You have always longed for one person.
-->'''Saya:''' Dear…
-->'''Kyougo:''' [[LampshadeHanging You mean Tohru-san when you say that.]]
-->'''Saya:''' Why…?
-->'''Kyougo:''' Why did I marry you? Because I love you. No matter who you longed for.
-->'''Saya:''' I’m… sor…ry…
* SacrificialLamb and StuffedIntoTheFridge: BOTH of them.
* TallDarkAndHandsome: Kyougo looks FINE despite being in his late 40's.

!!Shougo Asagi
->Voiced by: Creator/ToshihikoSeki (JP), Rupert Degas (EN), Josep María Mas (Spain)

A playful, sarcastic highschooler who appears only in the movie, filling Kakyou's place as his character hadn't even really been created. He also had Yuuto's water-based powers, since Yuuto had never used them by that point.

Tropes associated with Shougo Asagi:

* BashBrothers: He often teams up with Nataku in the movie.
* CanonForeigner: Was specially created for the animated film, since Kakyou had not appeared in the manga by that point and Yuuto's water-control powers had still not been revealed/written either. A decade later, he was adopted into CLAMP's canon in ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle''.
* ForTheEvulz: His sole motivation to join the Dragons of Earth.
* HotBlooded
* KillItWithWater
* MakingASplash: His specialty is water powers, and is powerful enough with them to flood a metro station and make a train surf over his water.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: And he fights wearing his school uniform.
* PsychicLink: Has a slight one with Kamui, telepathically speaking to him once [[spoiler:after they both witness Subaru and Seishirou's fatal fight.]]
-->'''Shougo''': "Kamui... here starts the last fight for the Earth!"
%% * TallDarkAndSnarky
* WeatherManipulation: He can create and control raining.

!!Keiichi Segawa

The closes to a {{Muggle}} friend that Kamui has in the story.

Tropes associated with Keiichi Segawa:

%% * OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent
* ThePollyAnna: His dad died when he was a child and his mom was killed in one of the battle-caused earthquakes, yet he remains ''eerily'' cheerful.
* SatelliteCharacter: Poor guy never got much spotlight or relevance in the plot.

!!Hokuto Sumeragi
->Voiced by: Creator/SatsukiYukino (JP), Creator/JulieAnnTaylor (EN), Julia Chalmeta (Spain)

Subaru's twin sister, whose death in ''Manga/TokyoBabylon'' [[SacrificialLion completely changed the turn of Subaru and Seishirou's destinies.]] [[spoiler: She also is revealed to be Kakyou's first and only love.]]

Tropes associated with Hokuto Sumeragi:

* ActionGirl: Was quite proficient [[BadassNormal in martial arts and minor spells]].
** ActionFashionista: And very, very fashionable.
%% * AngstySurvivingTwin
%% * GenkiGirl
* DreamWalker: [[spoiler: Hokuto can enter other people's dreams, but she can't influence them ''and'' it's hinted that she can only do it when she herself is asleep. (Unlike Hinoto, who can freely do so.) That's actually how she met Kakyou, via accidentally stepping into his dream space at night...]]
%% * HalfIdenticalTwins
* PosthumousCharacter: She died in ''Manga/TokyoBabylon'', but her influence still remains on both Subaru and Seishirou.
* ShipperOnDeck: Subaru/Seishirou fangirl.
* SpiritAdvisor: In the TV series, [[spoiler: her soul appears in front of Subaru and helps break free from his AngstComa.]]
* StarCrossedLovers: With Kakyou.
* ThanatosGambit: [[spoiler: Her HeroicSacrifice was actually a desperate gambit from her, to both save Subaru's life and give Seishirou a LastSecondChance. It backfired horribly -- but in the TV series, it soooooorta worked since Subaru ultimately survived.]]
* TheUnfavorite: Subverted. She was the eldest twin, but was denied to become the head of the family due to her lack of powers - yet she was not bitter about it and helped Subaru as much as she could.

!!Daisuke Saiki
->Voiced by: Creator/KisshoTaniyama (JP), Edward Villa (EN), Roger Pera (Spain)

The nephew of Seiichirou Aoki, with similar wind powers. He at first distrusts Kamui a lot due to his attitude and can't accept him as TheHero, but he slowly warms up to him. Daisuke is also very, VERY fiercely protective of Hinoto, and seems to have romantic feelings for her.
Tropes associated with Daisuke Saiki:

* BlowYouAway: His powers, as well as Aoki's
* BodyguardCrush: A huge one on Hinoto.
%% * HotBlooded
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: If you cross him, he'll be a real JerkAss. But if you prove to be a good person, he'll be much nicer. And if you do the first and then the latter, he'll aknowledge it rather humbly.
* MauveShirt: He's not a member of the Seven Seals but he has some decent CharacterDevelopment such as his treatment towards Kamui and his devotion for Hinoto. Too bad he didn't stick around [[spoiker:when Fuuma chops his head off]].
* SelfFulfillingProphecy: [[spoiler: His wish is to die protecting his beloved Princess Hinoto. Guess what happens when he meets Fuuma...? And for worse, [[OffWithHisHead it takes place in a damn bloody way]].]]

!!Setsuka Sakurazuka
->Voiced by: Junko Sakuma (JP), Julia Chalmeta (Spain)

Seishirou's creepy, soft-spoken, and very beautiful mother. [[spoiler: Also the previous Sakurazukamori, whom Seishirou killed to get the title and continue the tradition.]]

Tropes associated with Setsuka Sakurazuka:

* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother: So much, that Seishirou lampshades the trope in the CD dramas by mentioning [[OlderThanTheyLook she was so young-looking]] that he had difficulty believing she gave birth to him.
--> '''Seishirou:''' I wonder how old she was. I still am not completely sure. The one that always smiled quietly forever seemed to be a young girl...
* DarkActionGirl: Was the former Sakurazukamori.
* FlowerMotifs: When not killing people, her hobby is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ikebana Ikebana.]] Her favorite flowers are the [[http://worldkigodatabase.blogspot.com/2005/03/camellia-tsubaki.html red camellia]], ''benitsubaki'' in Japanese.
-->'''Setsuka''': ''(has an ikebana arrangement)'' Camellias. Red camellias.
-->'''Seishirou''': Your favorite flower.
-->'''Setsuka''': I love it. I love camellias best when they fall (gets a dreamy look) It falls on the ground.... plop, like a human head. ''I love it''.
* TheOphelia: She often talks about things that look like nosense, then counteracts with something quite unsettling and does so smiling. See the quotes under FlowerMotifs to have an idea.
* ParentalIncest: As mentioned, her relationship with Seishirou gives a strong vibe of this. She ''does'' say he's the only person she's ever come to care for and love, is implied to have given him a kiss on the lips upon meeting [[spoiler: and in the manga, when she dies at Sei's hand by her own request, they share a LastKiss.]]
* PosthumousCharacter: [[spoiler: Basically, the reason why Sei is the way he is. Even after dying ''many'' years ago, when Seishirou was in high school.]]
%% * RapunzelHair
* SnowMeansDeath: [[spoiler: Seishirou kills her in a snowy garden]]
** WhiteShirtOfDeath: [[spoiler: And she was [[WomanInWhite wearing a white kimono]].]]
* TricksterMentor: To Seishirou. She's always playful and creepily sweet to him, specially in the CD dramas.
* YamatoNadeshiko: A beautiful, soft spoken and dark-haired woman whose hobbies include Ikebana and wears really pretty kimonos. Her devotion to the murderous family business is complete, and it makes her ''extraordinarily'' creepy.

Twin young women who work as Hinoto's maids and caretakers, and are always by her side.

Tropes associated with Hien and Souhi:

%% * CreepyTwins: Sorta.
* GuardianEntity: In the anime, they are actually shikigami. This has never been implied in the manga to date.
* LadyInWaiting: If Hinoto is a princess, then these two count as this.
