The leader of the Elizalina Alliance of Independent Nations and the twin sister of the Maiden of Versailles.
- Awesomeness by Analysis: Since her magic is also based on the Right Hand's principles, she was able to affect Fiamma's Holy Right, if only temporarily.
- Egopolis: She's not a dictator, but the Alliance of Independent Nations was named after/in honor of her.
- Foil: To her sister, the Maiden of Versailles. Both of them lead nations, one of them manipulating people behind the scenes and the other helping nations prosper. One of them is skilled with warfare, while the other is an intelligent woman who helped her nation become independent and prosperous. Finally, one of them is a highly skilled magician, while the other is merely average in skill.
- The Medic: She's the one who heals Takitsubo. However, she can't heal Last Order.
- White Magician Girl: In contrast to the Maiden of Versailles, who wields a sword.
She's a quirky 12-year old girl who's magical prowess have earned her many invitations to other organizations, which she flatly rejected. Instead, she leads her own magical organization, the Dawn-Colored Sunlight. She plays a major part of New Testament 3.
- A Child Shall Lead Them: She is the leader of the 10,000 strong magic cabal Dawn-Colored Sunlight.
- A-Cup Angst: Oh, definitely, as Fremea-chan demonstrated.Fremea: And I wear a bra, so I’m essentially the winner.Leivinia: What are you trying to do!? Are you trying to pick a fight with me, you damn brat!?!?!?
- She picked a fight with Kanzaki Kaori in the Norse Mythology SS over her breast size.
- Armor-Piercing Slap: To Shiage, because he was sleepy during her course of magic, and that he brought up a certain subject.
- Ascended Extra: Kamachi said that she is his favorite character and was literally squealing in his author's notes when she appeared in New Testament Volume 1.
- Awesome but Impractical: Flintlock pistols have one shot and take a long time to load the bullet, powder, and wadding. She uses them because she thinks they are really cool.
- Bad Boss: Abuses poor Mark like there's no tomorrow.
- Bullying a Dragon: Taunts Aleister Crowley by pointing out how the changing circumstances have derailed his plans and how, in spite of this, he can't take action to correct those problems because that carries the risk of derailing his plans even further. His response is to cut a few strands of hair off of her head to show that he was listening to her and at the same time providing proof for her theory in how he didn't simply decapitate her instead.
- Car Fu: Rams a tanker truck into Cendrillon.
- Combat Pragmatist: Will do anything to win, including psychological warfare and wielding a flintlock pistol.
- Comedic Sociopathy: Her sadistic tendencies are mostly played for laughs.
- ...But to that note, she is stated to hold (tentatively) "[T]he #3 spot in the super sadist world rankings," according to Touma.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Only appeared shortly in cameos for obscure short stories before finally appearing officially in New Testament. She actually first meets Touma in a manga short story set way before her appearance in the main canon. And yes, he sees her naked.
- For those knowledgeable in those short stories, they would have spotted her brief cameos in Volume 18 and 22.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: She can easily enter the mindset of politicians and master schemers like Aleister Crowley to predict their actions and motivations. However, Touma's drive to help and protect others without expecting any reward or having any ulterior motives makes absolutely no sense to her. She eventually concludes that he is insane.
- The Gadfly: Enjoys trolling everybody.
- Genre Savvy: She studies leaders and charismatic people so she may take the best course of action to Take Over the World. Plus, it allowed her to simply analyze Aleister Crowley's mindset and deduce that he's basically backed into a corner and can't do anything.
- Groin Attack: On Touma.
- Hard Work Hardly Works: Averted. As Touma points out in his fight with her, Leivinia's spells rely on her having executed the same movements again and again over a long period of time until the movements themselves became magical symbols that she could use to cast her spells. As he stated, she is the ultimate example of the passionate hard worker, getting power through effort and application.
- He Who Fights Monsters: Touma claims that by manipulating and hurting countless others in the name of defeating Gremlin, her group and herself will be no different and will simply become the world's next enemy.
- Honor Before Reason: She refuses to use the more practical modern guns because of her contempt for science and because modern guns are not as cool as flintlock pistols.
- I Am Not Left-Handed: After her battle with Touma, Silvia points out that Leivinia only relied on the minor arcana for her spells and suggests that if she used the major arcana, then she could have turned the tables on him.
- The Idealist: Played with. Birdway genuinely wants to save people and do it in the best way possible, and her logic helps to shape Hawaii and Baggage City in NT3 and NT4 respectively. In her confrontation with Touma in NT7, one where she incidentally holds back, he points out that she could have circumvented most of the events that occurred had she used Touma as bait, something that she had considered but did not want to do to him.
- Like Brother and Sister: Silvia accuses her of seeing Touma as her ideal big brother. While it finally got her to snap and threaten Silvia, she never did deny it either.
- Little Miss Badass: She has the ability to create explosions by channeling Telesma — and Telesma is not for everyone, to say the least. Poor Acqua...
- She doesn't channel Telesma through her body. Her Summon Explosion is basically described as her skipping over the normally complex prep work that goes into using Telesma correctly and instead carries out her spell with nothing more than intuition. Basically, it's as though she pulled off an incredibly precise feat of engineering while simply eyeballing the measurements.
- She has a level of power comparable to that of a Saint, despite being an ordinary magician. She has even fought Kanzaki to a draw on at least one occasion.
- Manipulative Bitch: She basically screwed over and destabilized the Science Side by having Accelerator, Mikoto, and Touma interfere with the activities on Hawaii, without Aleister's manipulations to prevent it, just to bait GREMLIN into moving.
- Miss Exposition: In New Testament Volume 2. She explains magic to Accelerator and Shiage (Umidori eavesdropped on the conversation).
- Not So Different: From GREMLIN, Aleister, Fiamma, and Laura, in the fact that she is willing to essentially shatter the peace of the world by destabilizing the Science Side to accomplish her goal.
- Odd Friendship: She and Accelerator have excellent chemistry. He might be replacing Mark Space at this rate.
- Panty Shot: Gives ones to Kaori...
- Pretentious Latin Motto: Regnum771 — meaning Kingdom.
- The Profiler: Her cabal specializes in analyzing the thoughts and motives of those in leadership positions.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Does this to Aleister. It. Is. GLORIOUS.
- Reverse Psychology: A good example is during the NT Volume 2 epilogue, towards Accelerator.
- Shoot the Dog: Her policy toward anyone dangerous. In NT Volume 6, Touma opposes her in her attempt to kill Fraulein Kreutune. He says it doesn't matter that Freuline has uncontrollably become a cannibal, he calls Birdway out on not considering other options for solving the problem.
- Sphere of Destruction: Her Telesma bombs.
- Take Over the World: Her organization wants to remove the distinctions between Science and Magic, then rule over both worlds.
- Tarot Motifs: This seems to be a common factor amongst Golden Style magicians as they use the symbols and suits of the tarot to shape their magic.
- Wham Line: At the end of New Testament 3Birdway: “I don’t recall ever saying I stood on the side of justice, boy.”
Levinia Birdway's personal assistant and a member of Dawn-Colored Sunlight.
- Butt Monkey/Beleaguered Assistant: Really suffers under his boss' demands.
- Pretentious Latin Motto: Amare091
- Super Speed: He was able to block an attack aimed at Patricia Birdway and then move back to his original position without her noticing him move.
- Tarot Motifs: Like most members of Dawn-Colored Sunlight.
- Blow You Away: The Sword suit. He knows 14 different wind spells.
President of the United States of America. Introduced in New Testament Volume 3.
- Adaptation-Induced Plot Hole: Averted! Almost 3 years before Katze's introduction in the novels, an additional scene was added to episode 15 of Index I (the angel fall arc) that involved Kuroko switching with the US President, who was implied to be Barack Obama. Despite this, the scene still fits Katze quite well.
- Big Damn Heroes: He saves Accelerator of all people from GREMLIN agents.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: During an important meeting with several important political figures, he was munching on a hotdog, reading a dirty magazine, and hitting on the females in the room. He's still the President.
- Expy: Fans can't help but compare his appearance with Rider from Fate/Zero. The fact that they both have a boisterous personality reinforces the point.
- In-Series Nickname: Mr. Scandal.
- National Stereotypes: Boasts about America being the land of guns.Roberto Katze: Don't even hold a gun if you can't hit. Are you trying to get yourself killed!? This is the world's largest gun country!!
- Our Presidents Are Different: More specifically...
- President Action: When he determined that some organization was subverting Americans, including members of the White House and various defense agencies, he took it upon himself to personally investigate, ditching his bodyguards.
- President Minority: In the Raildex-verse, he's the third President of Latino descent elected to the office.
- President Playboy: Shades of this. And yet he makes Bill Clinton look tame, considering he's currently engaged to be married, but yet is still a flirt and openly talks of his sexual prowess.
- Raging Stiffie: Suffered one during a meeting due to his dirty magazine and the females in the room. His secretary was disgusted.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: After Touma tells him that Othinus has pulled a Heel-Face Turn and is no longer a threat to the world, he's rightfully skeptical, then listens to him after Touma gives his argument. He then gives a heartfelt speech to the world urging them to believe in Touma.
- Recognition Failure: He gets upset frequently that no one seems to be able to recognize him as the president, even though he has a very distinctive appearance.

- Reality Warper: Anything he imagines comes true.
- Clap Your Hands If You Believe/Imagination-Based Superpower: The effectiveness of his reality warping Ars Magna depends on his imagination and confidence.
- Reality Warping Is Not a Toy: His fears and doubts come true as well. He usually uses acupuncture needles to clear his mind before using Ars Magna. This is why he went through the elaborate plan to capture a vampire, he didn't believe he could do it on his own.
- Superpower Lottery: His Ars Magna is actually on par with John's Pen Mode Index, and a power that can turn your thoughts into reality is pretty much quite the power.
- Redundant Rescue/Shaggy Dog Story: He gave three years of his life to find a way to save Index, only to find that Touma had already saved her.
- To the Pain: After conjuring up a gun against Touma, he boasts that he's going to enjoy shooting him in the kneecaps, the arms, etc.
- Villainous Breakdown: Once Stiyl and Touma explain that his plan to use Himegami to attract a vampire so he can force it to turn Index into a vampire to save her life is unneeded, he gets really mad and decides to kill them, claiming that they mocked him and his dreams. Touma makes him even more upset and scares him half to death by laughing at him when Izzard chops off his arm, realizing that his powers are dependent on his state of mind.
- We Have Reserves: His reply when Touma and Stiyl confront him about his army of Brainwashed and Crazy Misawa Cram School students whose bodies were breaking down due to them being espers forced to use magic.
- You Gotta Have Green Hair: As seen in the picture. Justified as mages with an earth-alignment color their hair green to enhance their connection to the earth.

- Badass/Dark Action Girl: She was able to beat Touma up without using any supernatural abilities until the boy was vomiting red from internal bleeding. This is something not even Accelerator was able to do.
- Boobs of Steel: A very big chest and one of the greatest martial artists in the series.
- Code Name: Magic Name: Basis104
- Confusion Fu: A limitation of her "Short Hand" flashcards is that each one is marked with a unique spell, meaning she rarely, if ever, uses the same spell twice. She almost seems to consider this a point of pride at times. Backfires when Touma eventually realizes that she also subconsciously never launches her attacks in the same way twice in the row, so he's able to dodge her by occupying the space of her previous attack.
- Cool Big Sis: Acts like this around children or young teens.
- The Dragon: Oriana is Arc Villain Lidvia Lorenzetti's acting agent.
- Escape Artist/Stealth Expert: Comes with being a mercenary. Her job forces her to know every way of avoiding detection and capture. It is very hard to keep track of her once she starts running away.

- Absolute Cleavage: If she wears a shirt or jacket, she leaves it unbuttoned or unzipped. She doesn't wear a bra.
- Bare Your Midriff: If she wears a shirt or jacket, she leaves the bottom part open. Also when she changes into her bandeau/skirt combo.

- Pretty in Mink: Carries a fur cloak when she changes into her bandeau/skirt combo.

- Femme Fatale/The Tease: Flirts with pretty much anyone she meets.
- Made of Iron: She can take a punch to the face from Touma's right hand, get up, and mock him. It took a prolonged and devastating battle to finally bring her down.

- Victoria's Secret Compartment: She keeps her shorthand originals there.

- Break the Cutie/Broken Bird: One of the worst cases in the series.
- Chekhov's Gunman/Foreshadowing: Her actions and the knowledge she holds make her this. She crafted a new Gungnir and has the proper knowledge to do so through the Final Rune. Now Othinus, GREMLIN's head honcho, is seeking Gungnir.
- Cold-Blooded Torture: What they did to her.
- Cynicism Catalyst: Ceillier's apparent death drove her to villainy.

- It's All My Fault/My Greatest Failure: The destruction of her Cabal and Ceillier's fate.

- Names to Run Away From Really Fast: Hel, as they named her. She planned to live up to it.Brunhild: Like the hands of a clock, I am now inexorably approaching you as you lie their unmoving. Once I arrive, I will act true to the name of Hel that you forced upon me by sending each and every one of you to the underworld.
- Norse Mythology: Most of her magic is based on it.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Justified after what they did. After destroying her Cabal 5 years ago, they dug up the graves she made for those children and fed their bodies to wolves, they attacked small Norse cabal after small Norse cabal to make sure they all felt so threatened that they would not help her, they killed some children with no connection to magic just because they spoke to her when she collapsed on the ground, tortured her and put the last little kid who gave her hope in the hospital. Really, the only reason Kanzaki stopped her was because she was ordered to.
- Power Limiter: When her Saint Powers and Valkyrie Powers are at the same level during the Half-Moon, she loses access to both.
- Pretender Diss: Mocks GREMLIN member Hel as an idiot for trying to emulate the Norse goddess, pointing out that she used to have that title.

- Valkyries: She was born as one.
- Weather Manipulation: Absolute control over weather phenomena.
- Willfully Weak: She holds back a lot of strength when facing Mikoto, although she's still far beyond normal humans in terms of strength and speed. Of course, her heart wasn't fully into the fight, given the reason behind it.
- You Can't Fight Fate: A central theme of Norse Stories, as well as the destiny of Saints. People around them will be hurt for their sakes.

- Opera Gloves: Wears cow-print gloves.

- Thigh-High Boots: Wears cow-print boots.
- Valkyries: She was born as one.
Richard BraveA former member of Necessarius who defected and vowed revenge against them for dissing his invention, Lævateinn. In the SP Volume, he attempts to capture Patricia Birdway to use her in a plot to acquire the Alaskan Runes, which would have given him great power that could help his plans for revenge, only to be defeated by Stiyl Magnus and Theodosia Electra.
- Fate Worse Than Death: After his defeat, Dawn-Colored Sunlight takes him into their custody, and imply that his torture will know no bounds, as punishment for trying to harm Patricia.
- Flaming Sword: Lævateinn, a sword of his own creation that apparently burns so hot it can effortlessly annihilate anything, even a lake or concrete. However, see Post-Modern Magik.
- For the Evulz: He tried to trick Patricia into touching a Grimoire, which would have blown her arm off, for no reason other than his own amusement. Fortunately, Stiyl stopped her in time.
- The Heretic: He was labeled as such for using a scientific concept to perfect Lævateinn. This really pissed him off and caused him to turn evil.
- Not So Different: Stiyl sees a little of himself in Richard and feels slight sympathy for his motivation. The only reason why Stiyl is not branded The Heretic even though he uses Post-Modern Magik as well is that the people who judge these things are arbitrary hypocrites. Had things been a little different, Richard and Stiyl's positions could have been reversed.
- Post-Modern Magik: In reality, Lævateinn's flames are about average in power. He secretly sprays invisible ink (Vitamin B2 to be precise) on his targets in the shape of runes that when activated by ultraviolet light cause them to become extremely flammable. It was because of this that he was labeled The Heretic.
- Rule of Symbolism: Lævateinn is based on Surtur's Flaming Sword from Norse Mythology. Stiyl is quick to point out that it is a far cry from its mythological counterpart once the trick with the invisible ink runes is thwarted.
- Would Hit a Girl/Would Hurt a Child: Doesn't hesitate to try to kill Theodosia for standing in his way. He also doesn't care if he maims Patricia in the process of capturing her.
Voiced by: Emi Shinohara (JP), Barrett Nash (EN)Misuzu Misaka is Mikoto's mother, first appeared in volume 9 and again in volume 10, Volume SS and Volume SS2. Currently studying at a university. Mikoto often comments her mother acts more like a child than she herself is. Misuzu is very weak to alcohol, and after getting drunk she has a habit of clinging to a young guy she finds attractive, as Touma and Accelerator found out in SS1, when she got drunk and clung onto Accelerator, who called a taxi to take her to her accommodation.
- Alliterative Name: Misuzu Misaka
- Amazingly Embarrassing Parents/Doting Parent/Shipper on Deck: She's overly happy about Mikoto "seeing" Touma (whom she calls "the boy you care about so much"), much to Mikoto's embarrassment.
- Bi the Way: While drunk, she tells Touma and Accelerator (who she was also flirting with) that she wouldn't mind getting it on with a girl.
- Can't Hold Her Liquor: Gets drunk very easily.
- Hammerspace/Bag of Holding: Somehow the ingredients and tools for cheese fondue fit all in her bag in Season 2 Episode 11.
- Mama Bear: She planned to make Mikoto move out of Academy City when she felt it had become too dangerous. She relents when she realizes Mikoto has people like Touma to protect her.
- Older Than She Looks: Though it doesn't come quite naturally.
- One of the Kids: Her immaturity is a constant source of exasperation for her more mature fourteen year old daughter.
- Sentimental Drunk: Gets very happy and flirts with everybody while intoxicated.
- Strong Family Resemblance: Of Mikoto. Also a source of confusion for Touma and his dad, both of whom mistook her for Mikoto's older sister.
Mikoto's father, who first appears in Volume SS2. His self-created job description is "Finding the flaws in this world and correcting them". He seems to be interested in gemstone espers.
- Badass Boast: Remember, he pretty clearly knows exactly who he's talking to here.Tabikake: It's true that there may not be anything in this world that can take you [Aleister] out in one blow. However, my job is to point out what this world lacks. If the world is lacking such a thing, then the ball's in my court. That is why I gave you that warning. So keep that in mind.
- Mysterious Watcher: He has contacts all over the world and is strangely interested in gemstone espers.
- Off Screen Moment Of Awesome: In SS2, he goes on an adventure with Toya, Toya's Co-Worker, and Gemstone Girl while trying to escape from her pursuers. All the readers know was that it somehow ended with the group faking their deaths by blowing up an unmanned Cessna airplane as it flew through the air.
- Papa Wolf: He has the guts to threaten the most powerful man on the planet if he ever tries to use his family.
- Walking the Earth: He makes it his mission in life to "find the flaws in this world and correct them".
- Badass Bystander: In SS2, he saves the Gemstone Girl from the thugs chasing her.
- Chick Magnet: Now we know where Touma got it from. Unlike Touma, he's prone to flirting back, even if his wife is standing right next to him.
- Give Him a Normal Life: Inverted. Due to Touma's misfortune, the people around him treated him like a plague, and he was even abducted and brutally beaten. Toya, completely terrified at the prospect of Touma actually being killed by these overly superstitious people, sent Touma to Academy City, where "superstition doesn't exist", immediately after he graduated from kindergarten.
- Locked Out of the Loop: Has no idea about magic and the full extent of Touma's adventures.
- Male Gaze: Ogles any attractive girl he meets, much to his wife's chagrin.
- Mike Nelson, Destroyer of Worlds: Cast Angel Fall by accident. He never learns about this.
- Off Screen Moment Of Awesome: In SS2, he goes on an adventure with his Co-Worker, Tabikake, and Gemstone Girl while trying to escape from her pursuers. All the readers know was that it somehow ended with the group faking their deaths by blowing up an unmanned Cessna airplane as it flew through the air.
- Papa Wolf: He admits that he isn't a good fighter, but he'll be damned if he were to just stand there and watch his son get hurt.
- Shipper on Deck: Is happy to see Touma interacting with girls, mostly Sasha Croitsef.
- Unwanted Harem: Similar to Touma, he seems to attract nearly any girl he meets, which enrages his wife and his jealous coworkers.
- Weirdness Magnet: Like Touma, only no one's intentionally dragging him into things nor does he have Imagine Breaker nullifying his luck. According to his co-worker, this happens all the time (without his wife's knowledge of course). Let's see what he's coincidently caused so far:
- Causes Angel Fall by accident, successfully summoning Archangel Gabriel and nearly destroying the world.
- Met Ridovia Lorenzetti in Italy and moved her with his willingness to help his son, changing her views of the Japanese and deciding to capture Academy City in a peaceful manner, thus setting off the events of the Daihasei Festival Arc.
- While in South America, he helped give a young girl at a train station directions. Later that night, he encounters not only Tabikake Misaka, but also the same girl again (whom turns out to be a Gemstone, one of less than 50 in the world) being chased by a group of men in black. They end up spending the night escaping and eventually faking their deaths by somehow blowing up a Cessna airplane while it's in the air.

It is mentioned that she is roughly the same age as Toya, but she looks like she's in her early twenties while he's starting to go gray.
- Yamato Nadeshiko: As long as she's not mad.

- Above Good and Evil: Declares that it doesn't care about morality, only about observing interesting things.
- Always a Bigger Fish: Inverted. As far as we know, Aiwass is the biggest fish.
- Might not be the case anymore, with the existence of a group of Magic Gods having been revealed, and themselves talking of Aiwass as a "failure".
- Ambiguous Gender: Described as being more feminine than masculine in appearance, generally referred to with male pronouns. Most likely cannot be considered as actually having a gender.
- Blue and Orange Morality: As a being from the Aeon of Horus, its morality is radically different from those of the Aeon of Osiris. It appears to understand human morality but is fundamentally uninterested by its very nature. Instead, its actions are guided entirely by what it finds interesting.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: A little bit. After beating down Accelerator in Volume 19, how does the nigh omnipotent angelic being choose to contact and converse with Aleister...? With a cell phone of course.
- Chekhov's Gunman: "DRAGON" was first mentioned at the end of Volume 15. It becomes the driving force of Volume 19.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Delivers one to Accelerator of all people, slaughtering him with his passive defenses.
- Death Seeker: He wants Accelerator to kill him in order to force Aleister to recalculate his plans. However, Accelerator fails to do so since Aleister made Aiwass's defenses too powerful.
- Enigmatic Empowering Entity: To Aleister.
- Greater Scope Villain: Probably not truly bad, but definitely morally ambiguous. It's currently in a position of non-interference though, unless something interests it.
- Guardian Entity: Possibly one for Aleister.
- Humanoid Abomination: Aiwass is very clearly not human despite looking like one. It does not possess emotions as Accelerator is capable of understanding though it seems to display many at once. It can sprout wings, but those wings are so unworldly and bizarre that Accelerator is not even sure what's strange about them. It understands human morality, but seems completely indifferent. The only things that muster Aiwass' attention are the interesting things humans may do. It even finds the idea of being killed an interesting one with no thought given to self preservation. Finally, it cannot even convey what it is in human language and has to instead get by on approximations.
- I Cannot Self-Terminate: Not that it expressed interest in doing so, but Aleister put an automatic self defense system on it so that it can't even try.
- Intrigued by Humanity: A reason Aiwass claims for doing the things it does. It is very interested in Touma Kamijou, Accelerator, Shiage Hamazura, and Teitoku Kakine. At one point, Hyouka Kazakiri warns that if Aiwass continues to screw with humanity, they will eventually rise up and destroy it. Aiwass responds that if humanity has the potential to be capable of that, then humanity is truly interesting.
- It Amused Me: The reason for everything it does.
- Nigh-Invulnerability: At least, to beings from the Aeon of Osiris.
- One-Winged Angel: After defeating Accelerator, Aiwass comments that Aleister programmed a "transformation" option into its physical form — no doubt it will be this.
- Our Angels Are Different: Although how different is a matter of debate. No one is even sure if it's an angel in the first place. Aiwass says that that's basically close enough to what it is.
- Physical God: The most powerful character yet introduced.
- Power Gives You Wings: Sprouts golden wings when it powers up.
- Public Domain Character: Aiwass was the name of a voice that the historical Aleister Crowley heard on April 8, 9, and 10 in 1904. Crowley claimed that this voice dictated The Book of the Law to him.
- Rapunzel Hair: Again, see the picture.
- Starfish Aliens: A possibility. Aiwass mentions that even if it vanishes, it'll be back in another 10, 000 or 100, 000 years, since it's not of this world in the first place.
- Starfish Language: Aiwass is momentarily confused by the language of humanity not being able to express several concepts it is trying to convey. This is generally translated as a bunch of gibberish surrounding a word that is close to what it means but not quite right.Although, born is not quite the right word. It would be more correct to say uyAPPEARidvif… damn, the language cannot keep up. Rather than ‘born’, let us say ‘appeared’. That is not technically correct, but I cannot express it any better than that.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Without malice, Aiwass points out that the three main irregularities in Aleister's plans are all more heroic and determined. Touma is a hero by doing what comes naturally to him, Accelerator is The Atoner and Shiage achieves the status of a hero by protecting someone important to him. Aleister, on the other hand, merely fell into darkness. Aleister is clearly rattled by this declaration.
- Things Man Was Not Meant to Know: One of the members of Academy City's Board of Directors stated he wished he never knew of Aiwass in the first place.
- Weaksauce Weakness: It cannot manifest in the physical world unless the area is saturated with AIM.
- You Cannot Grasp the True Form: Accelerator can't quite grasp what Aiwass even is and that its wings look bizarre and unworldly, but not in a way he can even explain.

- Holy Halo: A halo with rods extending from it forms over her head.
- Combo Platter Powers: Her powers while in FUZE=Kazakiri mode manifest as:
- Plucky Girl: Once she overcomes her fears, nothing can stop her from saving her friends.
- Power Glows: Overall on her hair.
- Shrinking Violet: In regular situations, she is very shy and rarely speaks up.
- Tomato in the Mirror: First learned of her true nature when flying debris breaks her head in half. Her body is hollow with a strange crystal inside. Her injury heals up. Before this, she though she was just a normal human being and she didn't take the revelation well until Touma assures her that he and Index don't feel any differently toward her.
- Took a Level in Badass: First during the invasion of Sherry Cromwell and then a great one against Archangel Gabriel resulting on a Big Damn Heroes plus a Crowning Moment of Awesome.
- What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Several characters dismiss her as a mockery of life, an artificial angel. She despairs until Touma reassures her that he and Index don't care about that, she is still their friend and a being that is alive and deserves to exist.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: She is subconsciously afraid of coming near Imagine Breaker, since it would erase her from existence if she touches it. Touma assures her that it is a good thing, since her fear of death proves that she is alive.
- Younger Than They Look: She's 10 years old.
Archangel Gabriel/Misha Croitsef
The Power of God
A Christian Archangel and one of the most powerful beings (note not "characters") in the series, Gabriel rules over the attribute of water, as well as the moon. It first appears in the Angel Fall arc, as the eponymous angel.
- Above Good and Evil: Starts out with no desire or will of its own except that of God, neither good or evil. Later, after it gains free will, it states that it doesn't care about morality, only about accomplishing its goals.
- Ambiguous Gender: The narration refers to it as female, due to its body being modeled after Sasha Croitsef.
- Chekhov's Gunman: Its first appearance is in the Angel Fall arc.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: The entire might of both France and England couldn't do shit to him... er, her... whatever.
- Guardian Entity: For Fiamma.
- Making a Splash: The authority on water control.
- Manipulative... Something or Other...: Mostly shown during the Angel Fall arc.
- Nigh-Invulnerability: Able to withstand attacks from the world's military, and even from Accelerator.
- Our Angels Are Different: When it is not in a human host, it does not look human, as seen in the picture.
- Physical God: Gabriel is second only to Michael in power among the Archangels.
- Starfish Language: Apparently sounds like complete gibberish/static and contains concepts that cannot be translated. Hyouka can basically understand it, though. Gabriel seems to be under the impression that she's an actual angel and tries to get her to help!
- Sweet Tooth: Likes candy, as the sweet taste reminds it of the grace of God.
- There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Upon seeing it on the battlefield, Elizalina wonders why on Earth Fiamma would summon something with such massive power for any threat humans could possibly face. Note: Archangels are perfectly capable of destroying the Earth not only without trying, but as side effects to goals they feel are more important. This puts Gabriel's very summoning in this category.
- Worf Had the Flu: In every instance that it was summoned, Gabriel was no where near its true power. The closest was when Fiamma succeeded in correcting the elemental misalignment and Touma destroyed Index's control device, making Gabriel whole once again. However, even that left it at mere fraction of its full strength due to the Telesma drained by Acqua and its injuries sustained in its battle against FUZE=KAZAKIRI and Accelerator. Stiyl hypothesized that even absorbing all the water on Earth wouldn't be enough to bring it back to full strength.
A mysterious woman seemingly held prisoner in the Windowless Building. She was released in New Testament Vol. 5.
- Adaptive Ability: Starts out seemingly normal, then it turns out that she rapidly absorbs information around her to evolve. Aleister Crowley states that it would take about 2300 years for her to become the Ultimate Life Form at her current rate of development, but if she were to eat Last Order's brain and gain access to the Misaka Network, it would take a mere 3 seconds.
- Cannibalism Superpower/Horror Hunger: In NT 6, she evolves into being able to eat a person to gain their powers and memories. She is now driven by instinct to try to eat Last Order, and hates herself for not being able to resist. Touma solves the problem by having Cendrillon create a lifeless duplicate of Last Order. Fraulein eats it and her hunger is satiated.
- Extreme Omnivore: While she's not seen as capable of eating everything, she was able to eat an AIM being.
- Complete Immortality: She's existed since the witch hunts in the Middle Ages. Nothing seems to be able to harm her.
- Does Not Like Shoes: Even after befriending the others and having the opportunity to acquire clothes, she still wanders around barefoot.
- The Dreaded: Aleister kept her isolated in the Windowless Building, unable to absorb any information, because he is terrified of what she can do once she evolves. He believes she can jeopardize his plan.
- Emotionless Girl/The Spock: Justified as she starts out with no memories. However this is changing as her mind is stimulated by the info she absorbs. At the end of NT Vol 5, she declares that Last Order and Fremea are her friends.
- The Fog of Ages: She does not remember her origins nor her original name.
- Fountain of Youth: After eating Cendrillon's fake Last Order, she turns into a little girl.
- Girl in the Tower: While she was imprisoned.
- The Glomp: Starts doing this all the time near the end of NT Vol 6, believing it is what friends normally do.
- I Cannot Self-Terminate: Because she is immortal.
- Living MacGuffin: GREMLIN wants to capture her, believing that her unique nature can help them achieve their plans. After her hunger is cured, Thor and Marian decide she cannot be useful anymore and abandon their attempts to get her.
- Nigh-Invulnerability: Witch hunt tortures like burning and crushing had no effect on her. Even an attack from Accelerator only knocked her back a little.
- No Social Skills: Possibly due to being trapped in the Windowless Building for so long, and seemingly having no memories.
- Poisonous Person: She can insert a microscopic substance in a target. Living beings merely get sick or faint, due to the immune system acting up similar to organ rejection. In a foreign object, the substance can expand until it breaks.
- Rapunzel Hair: It goes down to her ankles.
- Sensor Character: She can detect electricity like a shark can.
- The Stoic/The Quiet One: Only speaks when someone directly speaks to her.
- To the Pain: She informs Hisako Yakumi that she won't finish eating her until she finished reflecting on herself.
- Stripperific: She's introduced in a transparent dress and pink bra and panties.
- Uncanny Valley: In-universe. Touma says that although she looks normal, it feels like something is off about her appearance.
- Who Wants to Live Forever?: She starts feeling this way when she is driven by instinct to try to eat Last Order. She calls herself a monster for not being able to resist and realizes she can't even commit suicide or be killed, since she can't be harmed. Touma restores her will to live by satiating her hunger peacefully.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Hers is silver/lavender.
A magically created elfin girl encountered by Kanzaki in the Norse Mythology SS. Her presence causes living beings exposed to her to undergo accelerated evolution.
- Death Seeker: After learning what she does to other living beings, she seeks to find a way to return herself to a fossil (as merely dying and becoming a corpse wouldn't be enough to stop the change).
- Fossil Revival: How she was created.
- Pointy Ears: She's an elf after all.
- Power Incontinence: She has no control over the twisted evolution that she causes in other living beings.
- Restraining Bolt: Similar to Aisa Himegami, she is given a cross by Necessarius to suppress her ability and allow her to interact with others safely.
Russian Orthodox Church
Krans R. Tsarskiy
Krans R. Tsarskiy
The current patriarch and leader of the Russian Orthodox Church.
- Dude Looks Like a Lady: It is noted by others that he looks very effeminate.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: His Seven Deadly Sins spell works both ways and allows Touma to neutralize him by pinning him with every sin except lust.
- Older Than They Look: He's 15 and looks like a small child.
- Puppet King: During the World War III arc, he was imprisoned in his own palace and used as a figurehead. Vasilisa eventually rescued him.
- Seven Deadly Sins: Uses a spell based on the Seven Deadly Sins against Touma in NT 10. The spell robs the target of 1/7th of their strength for each sin the user accuses them of. Once all sins are pinned the target won't have enough strength to breathe or have a heartbeat. The spell can be neutralized by refuting the accusations of sin.
- Took a Level in Badass: Upon being rescued from imprisonment, he's taken back his role as leader of the Russian Orthodox Church and acted like a true professional. He signed the final document that officially ended World War III.
- Unwitting Pawn: He ended up helping start World War III when he signed his signature on a dummy document. His signature was then transferred to a declaration of war.
- Wise Beyond Their Years: In a meeting of the world leaders, he can keep up with the others.
- Young and in Charge: Again, he's 15.
Voiced by: Yuka Terasaki (JP), Kate Oxley (EN)An exorcist and operative of Annihilatus from the Russian Orthodox Church, Sasha's first appearance in the story was during the "Angel Fall" story arc, where she was possessed by the fallen Archangel Gabriel who was looking for the true culprit of Angel Fall.

- Chekhov's Gun: Archangel Gabriel reappears once again as Misha Croitsef in Volume 21 after Fiamma summons it.
- Creepy Monotone: During the rare times she actually speaks.
- Drop the Hammer: Her usual weapon is a hammer that she's strong enough to smash through walls with.
- Exposed to the Elements: She wears her skimpy bondage outfit in the snow at Vasilia's insistence, using magic to keep warm. If it were up to her, she would wear weather-appropriate clothing so she would not have to waste magic this way.
- Hard-Drinking Party Girl: Apparently, she loves Brandy and Vodka, and even drinks up during work when she isn't supposed to. At least, she has a very high tolerance.
- Inverse Law of Fertility: The leftover telesma in her body has caused her to become unable to bear children, which causes her quite a bit of angst. Not to mention that Vasilisa taunts her over it.
- MacGuffin Girl: Fiamma of the Right is actively seeking her for the leftover telesma within her body so that he can summon an Archangel.
- Serrated Blade of Pain: In addition to her hammers, she carries a bunch of saws.
- Stripperiffic: Lampshaded in the side story volumes. To be fair, she doesn't dress this way by choice. You can blame Vasilisa for that one.
- The Stoic: Hardly ever speaks or shows emotions unless she has to.
- Verbal Tic: "My first question: How do I speak?" "My first answer: Like this."
- Cosplay Otaku Girl: And often forces Sasha to join her in this.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Basically rolls over almost the entirety of the Russian Orthodox Church with almost no effort.
- Healing Factor: Thanks to drinking The Water of Life, she can heal from nearly any injury.
- Hollywood Acid: Her main weapon, The Water of Death, can reduce a person to bone with one splash.
- Immortality Inducer: She has The Water of Life, which grants its drinker eternal life.
- Made of Iron: Casually shrugs off getting hit over the head with a hammer.
- Mama Bear: Concerning Sasha.
- One Woman Army: Easily defeats squads of assassins.
- Playing with Fire: Can create fiery explosions based on how Baba Yaga gave her namesake Flaming Skulls that burned her evil step-relatives to death.
- Rule of Symbolism: She is based on the heroine of Vasilissa the Beautiful.
- Super Strength: She can easily overpower Sasha, who is strong enough to smash through walls.
- Vocal Dissonance: She sounds like a little girl when casting her magic.
- Wild Card: Her only priority is Sasha's safety, and she'll do anything to ensure it.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: He's one of the best fighters in Skill-Out.
- Badass Normal: Is able to match a Level 4 esper in combat.
- Badass Pacifist: He hates conflict, but...
- Big Brother Instinct: His reason for taking the leadership of Skill-Out is revealed to be this.
- Combat Pragmatist: Jams Accelerator's connection with the MISAKA Network with the Chaff Seeds before fighting him.
- Genius Bruiser: Looks like a muscle-brained gorilla at first, but is actually pretty damn smart.
- Honor Before Reason: Prohibits Skill-Out members from associating themselves with prostitution even if it's the fastest way to gather funds.
- Large and In Charge: He's built like a tank and very tall.
- Never Hurt an Innocent: Under his leadership, Skill-Out's targets are only espers who misuse their powers.
- Papa Wolf: To Fremea Seivelun during the brief time they knew each other.
- Powered Armor: Hard Taping, a military grade armor which strengthens the body and provides speed, at the cost of muscle strain.
- Suicide by Cop: He killed himself by firing at Accelerator knowing that the bullet would rebound into him. He knew that he had no future, and correctly predicted that Accelerator would take over his role as protector of the innocent.
- Would Hit a Girl: Fought Awaki and almost killed her before Accelerator intervened.
The current leader of Skill-Out, and a former ninja.
- Amazon Chaser: Has a major crush on Aiho Yomikawa after she arrested him, based on both her looks and her incredible strength and fighting skills.
- Badass Normal
- Chekhov's Gun: A literal gun (a lady's handgun) which he gives to Shiage. Shiage uses it later to defeat Mugino.
- Highly Visible Ninja: He defies this notion, saying that it's better for ninjas to just hide in the flow of history rather than being in the open.
- Meaningful Name/Named After Somebody Famous: Hanzou Hattori is the name of a ninja from the Sengoku period.
- Papa Wolf: After Fremea gets taken by Umidori he gets really pissed.
Voiced by: Katsuyuki Konishi (Japanese) and Brad Hawkins (English)Wataru is a character introduced in the A Certain Scientific Railgun anime. He is a Skill-Out member and is the founder and former leader of one of the largest Skill-Out factions, Big Spider.
- Badass Normal: To the point another Skill-Out says that fighting skills are to Wataru what esper powers are to an Ability User.
- Berserk Button:
- "You're hitting girls? That is not cool."
- He'll also kick your ass if you make him drop his milk.
- Big Brother Mentor: To Mii Konori, who he sees as a surrogate little-sister. For Mii's part, she wishes it were something more...
- Blood Knight: He comments that he wishes the bad guys he defeats were better fighters so that his fights wouldn't be so boring.
- Casting Gag: He has a few parallels with Kamina, Katsuyuki's most famous role: both are eccentric Badass Normal Delinquents with signature tattoos and virtually the same "voice" out of Katsuyuki's many.
- Chivalrous Pervert: The rare anime male that can sincerely make comments about a girl's figure without causing offense.Kuroko: A gentleman talking about my chest?
Mikoto: In a strangely unperverted manner...
- Face of a Thug: Averted; in spite of being the singular most Badass Level Zero in Academy City, he has easily the kindest and gentlest appearance of all the males in the franchise, Touma included.
- First Love: For Mii Konori.
- Honor Before Reason: After taking down the now corrupt Big Spider and proving himself a hero, he turns himself in to the police, just because he used to be a criminal.
- Nice Guy: If he's not fighting you, he's one of the warmest, most tender souls.
- One-Man Army: Stands out in Academy City for being a real Level 0 (unlike Touma) who is able to neutralize dozens of armed combatants, including those with firearms, with his Martial Arts abilities alone. It's quite likely that it's through his tutelage that Mii is such a formidable Martial Artist herself.
- Put on a Bus: Literally, to jail. Do note though that he and Mii parted on very good terms.
- Tattooed Crook: Subverted; his tattoo, which is badge of his loyalty to Big-Spider, does not stop him from being a kind gentleman and absolute sweetheart.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Musashino-brand milk.
- Wife-Basher Basher: Plays it straighter than Touma.
Voiced by: Yasumura Makato (Japanese) and Jeremy Inman (English)A man who took over the Skill-Out faction Big Spider after Wataru was seemingly killed.
- Bad Boss: Berates and beats up his men for every mistake, and even shoots them in the back.
- Combat Pragmatist: Uses guns, knives, dynamite, Capacity Down, you name it.
- Decapitated Army: Big Spider is disbanded after his defeat.
- Dirty Coward: When the odds are against him, he quickly panics, uses his men as shields, etc.
- Fallen Hero: Under Wataru's leadership, Big Spider was merely an organization that protected Level 0s. Hebitani quickly turned it into a rabid gang out to kill all espers.
- Hell-Bent for Leather: Wears the typical black leather jacket.
- Hero-Worshipper: In his younger years, back when he wasn't corrupt, he deeply admired Wataru.
- Identity Impersonator: Pretends to be Wataru Kurozuma, tarnishing Wataru's reputation.
- Jerkass: A really unpleasant guy to say the least.
- Taking You with Me: As a last ditch effort, he reveals he's wearing a vest of dynamite and tries to detonate it. Wataru knocks him out at the last second.
- Tattooed Crook: Has a spider tattoo like Wataru.
- Would Hit a Girl: After disabling Mikoto and Kuroko with Capacity Down, he viciously beats them up before Wataru saves them.
A strange little guy who almost became "Magic God" or "Majin". He effortlessly defeated Gunha simply to send a message to Aleister: Don't hurt the Gemstones. For reasons unknown, he is intent on protecting "Gemstone" Espers like Himegami, and ironically Gunha as well.
- All-Loving Hero: He first intervened to secure the Gemstones' safety. Then, in the aftermath of World War 3, he saved Fiamma after Aleister blasted him. He also doesn't really seem to like having chaining up child traffickers because, in his own words:Ollerus: Chaining those human traffickers up and making them do manual labor is no different than what they did. That isn’t what I want.
- Badass: He's cited as being one of the most powerful characters in the series, and when you have guys like Acqua and Accelerator running around, you KNOW that means something.
- Badass Bookworm: Not a literal example. He has gained the knowledge of many grimoires by using the theory of Hliðskjálf to purifies his lifeforce, transforming it into a special magical energy. This barely allows him to survive the process of taking a grimoire's knowledge within him.
- Beware the Nice Ones: He's a really great guy who doesn't even like punishing child traffickers and sacrifices potential godhood to save kittens, but he's also capable of wiping the floor with Sogiita Gunha and is one of the most powerful magicians alive.
- Big Damn Heroes: In New Testament Vol. 4, he arrives with Fiamma of the Right to save Touma from One-Eyed Othinus.
- In Volume 10 he appears in his newly depowered state to save Touma and Othinus from Silvia.
- Big Good: So far. But given his Wild Card status...
- Brought Down to Badass: The fairy spell casted upon him greatly weakened his power, to the point where he is now weaker than the average magician. It doesn't stop him from defeating Silvia and Brunhild in NT 10.
- Butt Monkey: Is constantly on the receiving end of Silvia's abuse. Apart from a scream or two, or a spurt of genuine terror, he just takes it all in stride.
- Chronic Hero Syndrome: He can't ignore anybody in trouble, even a villain. This is in stark contrast to Silvia, who only helps people if it benefits her to do so. His attitude severely irritates her and she can't understand why he wants to help everybody.
- Cuteness Proximity: He failed to become a Majin only because he didn't want to get a nearby kitten hurt.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: He defeated Gunha, a Badass Level 5, without even trying.
- Meaningful Name: The term Majin either means "God of Magic" or "Demon God". He is also named after a legendary figure in Norse Mythology called Ullr, which is romanized as Ollerus.
- His life is also similar to said mythological figure as depicted in the Gesta Danorum. He has a spell known as Hliðskjálf, AKA the Throne of Odin, much like how the mythological Ollerus temporarily took Odin's throne. And when he lost his chance for title of Majin, it was given to One-Eyed Othinus, much like how Odin—Othinus in Latin—reclaimed his throne.
- Mysterious Watcher: He's been watching Touma's entire fight against Fiamma and Gabriel, and in the end saves Fiamma's life. He has also expressed interest in Aleister's Aeon of Horus.
- Names to Run Away From Really Fast: If you're a bad guy, oh yes.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: In New Testament Vol. 8, he and Fiamma tried to turn Othinus into a fairy because it would power her down from being a god, only for the attempt to rid Othinus of her 50/50 restriction and make her a perfect magic god.
- Reality Warper: His power is said to be utterly impossible to explain, but summing it up this way comes closest.
- Torches and Pitchforks: About the entire Magic side is hunting him down because they seek his power, which is close to being a "Majin". They all fail.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: At the end of New Testament Vol 6, he infiltrates GREMLIN by transforming into Thor and taking his place.
- Wild Card: He only cares about doing good. He's on nobody's side but his own.
One of the 20 Saints in the world, she is acquainted with Kanzaki Kaori and Knight Leader. She went away from England to hone her maid skills and in her travels met Ollerus. She calls him an idiot, but an idiot that needs to be cared for.
- Badass: If you can whip a Reality Warping magic god into submission, you're this.
- Barrier Warrior: She can create walls of Telesma that can deflect even Thor's attacks. She can also make minor shapes with them like hands.
- Born Winner: As a Saint.
- Bystander Syndrome: Her usual policy. If an event doesn't directly concern her, she doesn't care about it. She's really irritated about Ollerus helping people and dragging her into it.
- Destructive Saviour: She got in trouble numerous times at Buckingham Palace for accidentally causing enormous damage to the palace while taking out assassins.Thor: Y-You idiot!!Silvia: I was called that a lot at Buckingham Palace too.
- Friendly Enemy: Justified because of her Bystander Syndrome. Since she usually justs gets dragged into things, she doesn't take her battles seriously and is quite friendly with her opponent. That said, she's also a Saint and could utterly curb stomp most people into the ground in an instant if she so desired anyways.
- The Gadfly: Constantly tries to rile up Leivinia about Touma.
- Lightning Bruiser: She's a Saint, meaning she can move fast enough to break the sound barrier. She's also ridiculously strong, but her fighting style is designed to supress her own strength. Thor mentions he could not risk even blocking one of her punches otherwise the limb would explode.
- Meido: The Head Maid of the British Royal family no less. She hands down the divine right to rule from God to them. She doesn't seem to be coming back any time soon, though.
- Power Limiter: She created her current fighting style to allow her to fight and yet still supress enough of her power so she wouldn't inadvertently destroy everything around her.
- Revenge Before Reason: If anybody hurts Ollerus, she will make them suffer and then kill them, end of discussion. She doesn't even care if Ollerus forgives them.
- Tsundere: Type A for Ollerus. She has been repeatedly been called to return to England, but didn't. Her reason is apparently so ridiculous to be put in words...
- A Fanon theory is that the supposed cat Ollerus saved instead of becoming a Magic God is actually her. She was the one who told the story, so it's possible she did that edit to maintain her pride.
- Whip It Good: Wields a whip. Often whips Ollerus when he annoys her.
- Wild Card: She seems to not care about her duty with the British Royals, follows Ollerus, and is a Saint.
The Maiden of Versailles
The Maiden of Versailles
The twin sister of Elizalina, and the enigmatic woman ruling France behind the scenes. She is apparently one of the most powerful magicians in Europe, but has been put on house arrest and stripped of all political influence by the French government.
- Action Girl: In contrast to Elizalina, who is a White Magician Girl.
- Enemy Mine: Teams up with Carissa against Archangel Gabriel.
- Foil: To her sister, Elizalina. Both of them lead nations, one of them manipulating people behind the scenes and the other helping nations prosper. One of them is skilled with warfare, while the other is an intelligent woman who helped her nation become independent and prosperous. Finally, one of them is a highly skilled magician, while the other is merely average in skill.
- I Am Not Left-Handed: Was originally supposed to be unable to leave the palace of Versailles because she had been altered so that she could only survive the environment at the palace (a condition that was meant to be a check on her power by France's government), which leads to a momentary Oh, Crap when she shows up on the battlefield in person.
- Public Domain Artifact: Durandal, a sword said to have been forged from a shard of the Spear Of Longinus.
Etsu Aihana (real)The mysterious sixth Level 5 Esper. Not much is known about this person, not even their gender. When the Daihaseisai committee was searching for the Level 5s in Chapter 43 of the Railgun manga, despite all the other Level 5s being located, the sixth couldn't be found, which had been expected to some degree. The sixth also appeared in the tenth volume of the New Testament, when a mass message was sent to the Level 5s requesting their participation in the elimination of Touma Kamijou and Othinus, with the sixth's response being silence and toying with the phone. They are frequently impersonated, with at least three fakes appearing in the series.New Testament 12 reveals that their name is "Etsu Aihana", and that they employ Yokosuka the Organ Crusher to distribute their identity to those in need. Their motivation for this is currently unknown, though it's suggested that they're just trying to help people.
- Guile Hero: If the end of New Testament 12 is any indication, he may be this.
- Helping Would Be Killstealing: The reason Aihana hasn't helped their imposters directly is because Aihana claims it's meaningless unless the imposters solve their problems themselves. Yokosuka calls them out on this, saying they looking down on them.
- Legacy Character: Distributing their identity to other people creates this effect.
- Masquerading As The Unseen: Aihana's way of helping other people is by arranging the use of their identity, which no-one knows anything about.
- No Name Given: Like everything else about the character. New Testament 7 had an imposter #6 that introduced himself as "Etsu Aihana", but this was believed to fake until New Testament 12 revealed that "Etsu Aihana" actually is the real name of the sixth Level 5 esper.
- Running Gag: Expect any mention of #6 to be very quickly glossed over.
- The Ghost: Has yet to make their debut. Is known to exist by process of elimination, but nothing has been revealed about them.
- This actually becomes a plot point in New Testament 12; several people impersonate #6 because no-one knows anything about them. The end of the volume reveals that Aihana deliberately and secretly distributes their identity to those in need.
The seventh Level 5 esper, Gunha is a Gemstone, an esper who was born with his powers. His ability is nameless and absolutely impossible to define, though it allows him to create strange explosions, attack at twice the speed of sound, and recover from being shot in the head or heart with no pain. He is classified as the lowest Level 5 precisely because nobody understands his immense power, and thus they can't even guess where he really ranks. He has a strong sense of justice and believes that everything can be solved with GUTS.
- Apathy Killed the Cat: Has no desire to find out how his powers work and how to make better use of them, and even how to properly fight, as he thinks barreling his way through is the way a man should fight. When he rushes into a situation, he never stops to ask what is going on and even brushes off people trying to explain the situation to him.
- Attack! Attack! Attack!/Leeroy Jenkins: His philosophy is to charge into situations without hesitation and punch any bad guys in sight, relying on GUTS to power through. He even brushes off people trying to explain the situation to him.
- Badass: Despite getting Worf'd, he's still undeniably badass.
- Big Damn Heroes: He saves Touma from being crushed by a large ball of metal scrap controlled by Mikoto, who is under the effects of the Level 6 Shift attempt done on her.
- Blood Knight: He likes fighting strong opponents. After seeing the dragon inside Touma, he admits he wants to fight him some day.
- Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: Happens with Yabumi Haratani. Whenever Gunha gives out an explanation for his powers, Haratani ends up calling him on it, followed by Gunha responding with a dumbfounded variation of "Then what did I just do?" Gets lampshaded by Mikoto.
- Born Winner: Being a Gemstone, he was born with his esper abilities.
- Calling Your Attacks: "Amazing Puuunch!"Yokosuka: Please, just beat me with an attack that sounds like it's worth losing to at least. Not that Amazing Punch attack.
- Chronic Hero Syndrome: Even moreso than Touma. He's constantly wandering around Academy City helping people in need and will never turn down a request.
- Cloudcuckoolander: He's in his own little world where he's a superhero saving the world from bad guys, with GUTS! Case in point, when Mikoto tried her railgun attack on him, his first reaction was to scold her for taking an arcade coin out of the arcade.
- In New Testament Volume 7, while heroes from all over Academy City were rushing to try to save Fremea and attacking each other as a result, Guhna was in the middle of it all unaffected by the project, and defending trees.
- Coat Cape: Tends to wear his jacket like a cape. Appropriate since he thinks he's a superhero.
- Combo Platter Powers: His power is stated to be impossible to define, and manifests in a variety of ways, including:
- Deflector Shield: Which is powerful enough to block Mikoto's electric attacks.
- Healing Factor: He can stop his bleeding and even reset his bones. To him, all it takes to recover is GUTS!
- Make Me Wanna Shout: He can scream loud enough to cushion his fall and make the surroundings rattle, forcing everybody nearby to cover their ears.
- Nigh-Invulnerability: Even without his forcefield, it is very difficult to inflict damage on him.
- Stuff Blowing Up: He can create a strange explosion around him that throws people away.
- Super Speed: He can move at Mach 2.
- Super Strength: As evidenced in his Amazing Punch.
- Teleportation: He has a lot shorter range than Kuroko, though.
- Determinator: He repeatedly gets back up during his fight with Ollerus despite being totally outclassed.
- Early-Bird Cameo / Continuity Cameo: Appears unnamed in one of the memories of a Level Upper user (possibly Yabumi Haritani) during the AIM Burst phenomenon in Chapter 15 of the Railgun manga, well before Gunha's actual first appearance in Chapter 44. Witnessing Gunha's amazing power appears to have been the catalyst for that esper to use the Level Upper in the first place.
- Explaining Your Power to the Enemy: Spoofed. See It Runs on Nonsensoleum below.
- Foil: To Touma. Mikoto even wonders if they know each other after Gunha is able to withstand her electrical attacks. Railgun Chapter 63 has them meeting and teaming up to subdue a supercharged and "not herself" Mikoto.
- For Great Justice: Making the world a kinder and gentler place..... one ass-kicked villain at a time.
- Hero of Another Story: His high school teacher notes that he misses school to help people all the time (just like Touma), yet we've barely seen any of it.
- Honor Before Reason: Despite having super speed and teleportation, he always announces his presence, attacks head-on, and refuses to attack from behind, saying that a true warrior wouldn't sink to dirty tactics. This is also the reason why he sees no reason to learn how his powers work and how to properly fight.
- Hot-Blooded: Everything is fighting with GUTS for him.
- How Do I Shot Web?: An unusual example in that he knows how to use his powers, but he has no idea how they work (Touma is probably the only one in the series with similar issues). Ollerus tells him that he might have stood a chance in their fight if Gunha actually knew how his powers worked and took better advantage of them.
- Idiot Hero: He acknowledges this, but claims it is irrelevant.

Hasami HitokawaDebuting in A Certain Scientific Accelerator, Hasami is a level 2 pyrokinetic esper with severe depression issues. She tried and failed to kill herself shortly before the start of the series, and the fake Anti-Skill officers who recovered her finished the job on the way to the hospital. Estelle Rosenthal implanted a Huotou (a type of necromancy) into her body, and she soon after animated as a zombie under Estelle's command.
