Orange Star as a whole provides examples of:
- Somewhat pragmatic; in Orange Star's civil war, she fought for the loyalists and looked for any weakness in the Dakotan ranks; when she found Madison's reluctance to fight, she did everything she could to convert her.
Edmund WarfieldPrior to the RP Warfield led a campaign in the Alara Range, ultimately resulting in the borders shifting and Orange Star taking the whole mountain range. He retired soon after, until recently when Dart was fired from the role and Warfield was appointed as the "new" Commander-in-Chief.His strength and weakness lie in tag battles - while his opponents are weaker when tagging, his own tag powers are weaker.
- Retired Badass - Before he was brought back into service, of course.
Gemini"Collectively, we are known as Gemini."The twins Colinne and Colette d'Amie, collectively referred to by the callsign of Gemini, are together a commanding officer. They're half-identical, but they try to mask even the gender difference between them. Colinne and Colette grew so close together that it worried their parents, but when they enrolled into the military and their CO powers were discovered to be stronger if they were together, they were let be as close as they wanted to each other. Which was very close.
- Finishing Each Other's Sentences - "Wow." "Wow." "Westhaven has poor drivers." "First the accidents on Main Street." "Now this." "What does driving education look like here?" "They get their licenses in cereal boxes." "So, they buy them." "Yes. They buy them." "Democracy." "Capitalism." "Sigh." "Sigh."
- Synchronization - Their CO powers depend on them being together, probably lending to their sense of superiority over others.
Madison Kelton"For crying out loud!"A former Green Earth naval commander with a down-to-earth personality. She is difficult to anger but determined to face problems head-on.Madison's units fight better over sea and worse over land. This has the effect of making her sea units superior most of the time and her land units average at best.
- Locked in the Dungeon: When taken captive by Green Earth, Madison was subject to some very unusual punishment by Viola. It failed to break her, though, and thanks to actions by more sane Green Earth COs (Commanding Officers), she doesn't harbour ill will towards them - yet Viola herself still frightens her.
- Face–Heel Turn or Heel–Face Turn depending on your perspective.
- High-Heel–Face Turn from Orange Star's perspective.
- Farmer's Daughter: As well as being a literal example, Madison has a few traits of the archetype. Specifically she would dress in Daisy Dukes if the climate and uniform regulations allowed for them, is tomboyish and has a protective father.
- Jade-Colored Glasses: A trait of character development. Madison isn't exactly a complete negative nancy, but it isn't often that she agrees with anyone, or wait for long to criticise some idea they might share.
Suzanna Mia HarrisonSuzi is the bastard child of a former teen celebrity. Having been raised by a single mother trying to deal with her celebrity status as well as an unplanned daughter, Suzi learned to be independant from a young age and hates it when people are overly sympathetic to her.Her helicopter units are stronger than those of must other COs, rivaling even Joseph's, but her planes are weak.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: Her hair is a pale brown in the RP and blonde in her artwork.
- Deep South: Suzi is from Ozark, the RP's rough equivalent to Texas. She usually modifies her accent to hide the fact and to be understood.
- Geo Effects: Suzi gets all the normal ones, but her CO Power lets her apply terrain stars to helicopters
- Mini Dress Of Power: She owns about three, including a black one. Not that she gets to wear them much these days.
- Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: In-universe, generally when Suzi's in deredere mode.
- Punny Name: Despite her name, she doesn't seem to have godlike powers. Not without a bunch of helicopters anyway.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Fluctuates, but is usually around B or C-grade, but is depicted with A-grade in her official artwork. If she had twin pigtails, she could easily reach S-grade. At least, were it not for Warfield's insistence on uniforms...
Tyke"What can I say? I'm a sucker for lost causes."The youngest CO on the Orange Star CO force, and also the cockiest. Tyke was born in Blue Moon, but was taken away by his godfather to Orange Star and joined the army. Tyke has no strengths or weaknesses, but his CO powers are very aggressive, much like himself.
- Authority Equals Asskicking : Tyke spends more time training for a fight than he does for actual commanding. Given recent events in the Dakota storyline, it seems to have paid off.
- Knife Nut: Tyke's good with many weapons, but the knife is his favourite. He also comes up with surprising uses for it.
- Would Hit a Girl: Suzi once, when she shot a sudden friend of his after confusing him for an enemy. The girl was left with an awful black eye for a while afterwards.
- I Should Have Been Better: He's been quick to hate himself for anything that's gone wrong. Which he's had quite a lot of, what with backing the smaller army in a civil war. Even when he won a battle, he suffered a mini-Heroic B.S.O.D. after Madison defected back to the loyalist army.
Horatio MontegreenA submarine captain-turned-CO, Horatio prefers to plan ahead using any information he can get.His units are harder to destroy in areas with high defence and easier to kill in areas with low defence, even moreso than the other COs.
- Flat-Earth Atheist: Doesn't believe in CO Powers, even though he clearly has them.
Blue Moon as a whole provides examples of:
- Cool Bike: Blue Moon is, so far, the only nation to field customized bike units in the forms of the Bogatyr and the Stinger.
- Glorious Mother Russia: Blue Moon's hat. The official name of the nation is the Soviet Socialist Republic of Blue Moon.
- Invisibility: Many of Blue Moon's signature units utilize cloaking systems in battle.
- Soviet Superscience: Downplayed example compared to most uses of the trope. Still, Blue Moon has a lot of...strange units in their arsenal, such as the ground-effect plane Stribog unit, the burrowing spider-mine Nidhogg unit, and basically anything built with Packing Technology.
Leonei YorvinA former engineer in the employ of Sigrid Hennelzen's squad, Leonei found himself thrust into the position of Marshal for the armed forces of Blue Moon following the events of the Lunarian Affair. He has absolutely no idea what he's doing as a result. Leonei is blessed with common sense and technical know-how, and excels with hard numbers; much like the screaming general before him, Leonei is stronger with units unique to the AWRP, but is poor with regular units (the units found in the actual Advance Wars games). Additionally, Leonei's abilities affect Emplacements, structures similar to the Black Cannon and its ilk in the main games. His CO Powers are Networking and Signal Hijacking, which allow him to boost emplacements and custom units, even stealing the enemy's emplacements to use for a time.
- Ascended Extra: Originally a minor NPC controlled by his handler, Leonei became his next CO following a return to the roleplay.
- Gadgeteer Genius: The predominant source of new technology in Blue Moon's armed forces.
- Improbable Age: Leonei is leading Blue Moon's armed forces at the ripe age of twenty. He didn't get much of a choice in the matter, though.
- Nice Guy: Compared to his immediate superior Sigrid, Leonei is almost certainly this.
- The Turret Master: The intent behind Leonei's use of Emplacements.
- Yes-Man: The original reason Leonei was hired by Luka.
- You Are in Command Now: Almost literally what is said to Leonei, following the Tribunal's decision.
Leslaw SterlingA general in the military and the second-in-command of the Blue Moon Armed Forces. Leslaw Sterling is professional to a fault, approaching everything with cold precision to an almost comical degree. Humor tends to escape her. Regardless, Leslaw's approach has served Blue Moon well, with her efforts being instrumental to events in recent history for the country. Leslaw's units are overall stronger than anyone else's, but as a drawback she never obtains the first strike even when it's her turn. Her CO Powers are Barrage and Weapons Free, which deal mass damage and remove her drawback for a time.
- Embarrassing Nickname: Leslaw was routinely referred to by Sigrid as "Coleslaw".
Koel McdowellA sniper and commander from Berezniki, Koel was moved into a command position after suffering a wound on the battlefield. The second-youngest general in the Moonian retinue, after Leonei, Koel bares the struggles of a soldier twice his age behind his eyes. Koel has increased ability with Tire-driving units, but has issues with treaded units. His CO Powers are Lead Boots and Power Slide, which increase the power of Tire units further.
- Improbable Age: Not as bad as Leonei, but Koel is still twenty-one years old and a high-ranking general.
- It's All My Fault: Koel feels that the Lunarian Affair was allowed to happen because of his actions.
Kliment KaganovichA naval officer promoted to fleet admiral recently, Kliment Kaganovich got his start in the navy when his ship accidentally crushed a whale, earning him the nickname of Zveroboy, or Beast Killer. Since then, he's moved up to join the command staff of the nation. Kliment, as an admiral, has a strong navy and is unhindered by snow, but suffers with poor ground forces. His CO Powers, Rough Seas and Stormfront, bring snow into the battlefield and increase his navy's power further, as well as cause mass damage.
- A Storm Is Coming: Kliment's Super CO Power, Stormfront.
- Badass Grandpa: Kliment is only forty years old, but his daughter is expecting a child soon, making him this trope.
- Cool Old Guy: Easily the oldest member of Blue Moon's command staff.
- Technologically Blind Elders: Minor example, as Kliment only has trouble with the newer features of PDAs, like message-sending.
- Weather Manipulation: Kliment's powers force a snowfall on the field of battle.
Valerian AlkaevFormerly known as Valentin Rykov, the Commissar, Valerian went MIA on his first mission as a commander against Orange Star, eventually being taken captive. He escaped, killing the Grey Fox in the process, and joined with the Letter Squad to fulfill a debt to them he earned upon his release. After his debt was paid, a penitent Valerian returned to the command staff with the help of Koel and Leonei. Valerian fights stronger on artificial terrain like cities and roads; his CO Powers, Urban Warfare and At Any Cost!, increase his prowess on these tiles.
- Friend in the Black Market: Valerian evidently knows several people in Blue Moon's shadier employs.
- I Did What I Had to Do: Valerian's modus operandi.
- My Greatest Second Chance: This is the reason Valerian returned to the command staff.
- Paper-Thin Disguise: Valerian's only major difference from Valentin is that his goatee is shaved off. No one ever catches on.
- The Political Officer: His former job before becoming a commander.
- That Man Is Dead: Following his return, Valerian had to discard his former identity of Commissar.
- Urban Warfare: His specialty on the field of battle.
Green Earth as a whole provides examples of:
Julius WinthropWinthrop is a wealthy industrialist responsible for founding and operating the most powerful industrial conglomerate in Green Earth, Winthrop Industries. Originally pulled some strings to make himself a General in the CDF, Winthrop quickly found himself caught up in a whirlwind of intrigue that landed him in the newly formed Minister of Military Affairs position, effectively making him the current Commander in Chief of Green Earth's military.
- Nice Guy: Is almost excessively nice, trying his best to find the good in everyone. His adamant belief in peaceful solutions to problems can make him seem naive at times.
- Heterosexual Life-Partner: With his secretary and best friend, Ludwig. The two are virtually inseparable.
- Hypercompetent Sidekick: The aforementioned secretary, Ludwig, is this for Winthrop. His organizational ability and exceptional technical skills provide Winthrop with the resources to be at his best. In the brief instance in which the pair was apart marked a noticeable drop in Winthrop's energy and ability to remain calm and rational.
- To illustrate this, the one time Ludwig is not present with Winthrop, he neglects to inform an active battlefield that a squadron of transport helicopters from the perennial rival nation Orange Star is approaching to lend medical aid, NOT begin an invasion. The whole lot was nearly shot down as a result.
- Cool Old Guy: Is by far the oldest commander in Green Earth (And possibly the entire RP) at 66. He retains a high degree of spryness for his age, and is almost insufferably nice.
- Eccentric Mentor: Has elements of this towards the Green Earth staff, despite being rather new. His experience with life and business translate surprisingly well to diplomacy, and he isn't afraid to offer guidance to those many years his senior in rank. Even when it isn't asked for.
- Benevolent Boss: Despite being elected to the most powerful position in the Green Earth military, he still delights in taking time to chat with passing soldiers and generally being pleasant to follow.
- Honor Before Reason: Winthrop's strict adherence to the principles of goodness might work well for a philanthropist, but for a military commander, it has its flaws. At times borders on Lawful Stupid.
Raoul BellengerRaoul is the second-in-command of Green Earth. He is outspoken and usually the first in line to argue with Thor.Raoul prefers to use older unit types and struggles to use modern equipment. This is reflected in his abilities, which means he is stronger with the standard units that each faction starts with. His custom units are weaker.
- French Jerk: He actively revels in it.
- New Technology Is Evil: Raoul's very abilities are based around this trope.
Adrian Ross SheppardAdrian is a former soldier who was promoted to CO when his powers developed. He is a calm intellectual who tends to act as a mediator.His units have strong defences but lower firepower.
Taylor SullivanPrim, proper and negotiative, Taylor is the daughter of Green Earth nationalist Sir Edward Sullivan and inherited her father's patriotism, but not his enthusiasm.Taylor's units have strong defenses and low firepower. Unlike Adrian, can switch these around by using her CO Powers.
- Not Quite Dead: An artillery attack by Blue Moon was so devastating that she was thought to be dead, only to be saved, albeit with an cybernetic hand and a scarred body.
- The Ojou: The most formal CO by far. She almost always refers to someone as Mr. or Ms.
Kierra "Falcon" MitchellFalcon joined the Air Force in her late teens. Her style of flying was initially seen as reckless, but she proved herself so effective at fighting and getting her squadron to work together that her superiors were convinced she should be a CO.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Falcon isn't polite or sophisticated, but she is kind.
- You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry: When she gets angry, Falcon beats people up.
- Fiery Redhead: She continues the proud tradition of fiery redheads in Green Earth.
- Ace Pilot: A "steamroller" style ace pilot with her own brand of flying
- Action Girl: Wherever there is fighting she can usually be found just in the thick of it.
- Megaton Punch: Falcon uses this as her primary means of expressing her anger. Has been shown to bend metal and crack cockpit glass when she is very frustrated.
- My Country, Right or Wrong: Extremely loyal Avalon, to the point where the only reason she is working with Green Earth is because Avalon has rejoined the country.
Kirsten "Blondie" Fleischer
The daughter of Wilhelm Fleischer, a CDF Navy Captain, (KIA during the First Dakota War), and an unknown mother. After graduating from the Teufelsberg Military Academy, Kirsten spent the next four years training First Year Candidates there, and went on to join the CDF on May 2013. She is a proud Waldeslandian, with a very strong sense of patriotism. Keeping calm in the face of danger is one of her most "marketable" skills.Kirsten's AWRPedia page.
- Action Girl: Kirsten has received extensive Special Forces, Intelligence, and Interrogation training.
- Berserk Button: Don't call her "Blondie". Ever.
- Control Freak: Kirsten does everything by the book. (No, not that book! The other one, the CDF Officer's Field Manual) She takes this up to eleven, by insisting that everyone else does the same too.
- Drill Sergeant Nasty: She used to be this to her recruits, back at the Academy. Traces of it still remain, though. (Chances are you'll be screamed at by her, at least once)
- Meaningful Name: Her last name means "butcher" in German.
- Missing Mom: Kirsten never met her mother, and is currently trying to find out more about her.
Yellow Comet as a whole provides examples of:
Emperor Ken KobayashiA pacifist, Ken is a former orphan who was adopted by the previous Emperor and inherited the title. He will fight back if pushed, however.His tanks and planes have strong firepower and defensive strength, but he lacks strength with naval units.
- The Hero, from Yellow Comet's point of view. All the other COs look up to him, and Ken has carried the nation's weight many times.
- I Did What I Had to Do. Said by Ken many times, who has done more than one morally questionable action for the sake of his empire. One character has called him out on war crimes for wrongfully torturing a prisoner of war to try and gain information to win against Red Mesa - Ken did nothing to ease this, but he did eventually let the captive walk free. Ken had a young niece, who he gave away against her will to the empress of Macro Land Yellow Comet, all to end a long war between the two nations. Whenever he's been confronted by a friend or a peer, this was often all he could say.
Izumi "Hemlock" Date
- Hey, You! - Calls everyone but Ken and Hanako with either a -kun or -chan suffix.
Makoto KomoriMakoto was born into a rich family who owned a weapons company. She grew bored with being rich and started working in a weapons factory until her family stopped her fraternising with the working class. After settling into the rich lifestyle and having a daughter, she grew bored again and joined the YC Army as an engineer until she was promoted to CO.
- Theme Naming - Yet another YC CO with a plant-related surname. Komori means "small forest".
Yuriko MakiYuriko used to work for the Orion Foundation, a mercenary and weapons development company formed from SMART's remnants before a person known only as Diyu joined and abused their resources. She approaches Yellow Comet with information in exchange for her protection.Units under Yuriko's command have additional firepower and defence with no real downside. However her CO Powers take a long time to charge up and are inefficient for their price.
- Healing Hands: Her CO Powers let her restore HP to her units.
- Theme Naming: Her surname means "black pine", fitting with other Yellow Comet characters and their tree-related surnames.
- Floral Theme Naming: Her given name means "lily child", fitting in with PanicAttack's COs, particularly Suzi (whose name is also derived from a word for lily) and Hanako (whose name shares the -ko/child kanji).
Stephanie "Herr Strafe" KaulitzAn anti-war activist from Neue Muenchen. She adopted an alternate personality in order to protest against the Green Earth military's use of Viola's powers during the Dakota Wars but ultimately was arrested.
- Machine Monotone: She speaks using a synthetic voice as Herr Strafe.
- Meaningful Name: Herr Strafe translates as "Mr. Punishment", befitting her objective of seeing the Green Earth military punished.
Blake RooseveltA far-right political pundit and evangelist, Roosevelt sparked the ire of Orange Star's command staff by claiming that COs aren't human beings and calling for their removal.
- As the Good Book Says: Though he twists the meanings of said passages.
- Insane Troll Logic: His argument boils down to The Bible saying that people with "anything superfluous" not being accepted into Heaven. Only humans get into Heaven. CO Powers are superfluous. Ergo, COs aren't human.
- Sinister Minister: Though he's more widely known for his punditry.
- What Measure Is a Non-Human?: According to him CO Powers render a person a demon, not a human being.
Robert ChaseChase is arrogant and lazy, believing himself to be intellectually superior and a better commander than his colleagues. However, he would rather mock his colleagues' faults than try to prove his actual superiority. He is also insecure around independant, assertive and intelligent women.Chase is skilled when commanding fast units with high movement ranges, having little patience for slower units.
- Kicked Upstairs: The only real reason why Chase was the second-in-command of Orange Star was so that he ends up with more paperwork and responsibility, rather than because he's earned it.
Joshua Bradley KennedyJosh is an easy-going new CO. He is relatively new and only really dislikes people who dislike him.His vehicle units are superior to those of other COs, but his infantry units are weaker.
Andrew Watfield AllistairA former cadet who left the military to pursue a motorsports career. After an accident which left him blind in one eye and with a limp, he returned to the academy and trained as an officer. His powers surfaced and he became a CO once he finished training.His ground vehicles are strong while his air and naval units are weak.
- Disability Superpower: His own powers. Subverted as he would probably have had powers even without his injuries.
James "Grey Fox" RileyA former special forces operative, Grey Fox is a serious person with a tendency to view the bigger picture than deal with the immediate threat. Recently, however, he's begun to lighten up, but also grown more bitter and resentful.He was a former member of FOXHOUND before his promotion to CO. He is fiercely patriotic to Orange Star to the point of turning the recently defected Madison back to Green Earth. He fled the country for a time before returning captured. He currently has his position back on pain of death.Grey Fox's ground units do well against expensive units, but struggle against cheaper units. His air and sea units fight on a level on par with everyone else.
- Chronic Backstabbing Disorder - Or at least a minor form of it. He prefers to wield power over others rather than remain loyal to them.
- Colonel Badass - One of the few Orange Star COs with a confirmed rank. He still outranks everyone just for being a CO, though, but just likes being called Colonel.
- Establishing Character Moment - Betraying Maddie. He'll never live it down.
- Hero of Another Story - Believe it or not he used to be respected by his peers, way before becoming a CO.
- Leaning on the Furniture - Tables are comfortable to lean over, damnit. Plus it makes you look imposing.
- Mysterious Past - His CO powers aren't genetic.
- Put on a Bus - After ratting out Maddie, he drove off into the sunset.
- And again recently.
- Stroke the Beard - 10% patriotism, 15% coffee, 75% beard stroking.
Matthew JorganMatt initially joined the Orange Star military just to learn to fly planes, but eventually he was convinced to stay on as a CO, and discovered an equal affinity for tanks. He learned from a young age to be polite to other people and to care about them, though he can be a smart aleck at times.
- Knight in Sour Armor: Matt's convinced that the world sucks, but he still cares about it.
- Chivalrous Pervert: Matt tends to check out every woman he comes across and think about them inappropriately, though he truly does care for their well-being.
- Amazon Chaser: Matt likes dangerous women.
Nathan MatthewsA young man from Ozark. He joined the Orange Star Military due to his home being invaded by Blue Moon. He gets better defenses with his direct-attacking troops at the cost of indirect attacks.
DSpecial operations soldier who had a sidekick squad to himself. Retired by jumping off the Independence tower and vanished halfway down after player quit the RP and forums.
Dan "Dart" GallagherThe former leader of Orange Star, Dart was once a hotheaded character, but has since mellowed out into a strong leader- he needs to be with several subordinates hating the guts of each other. He has a caring side, which he tries to avoid showing.Naval units under Dart's command are more powerful, but his air units are inferior to other COs' air units.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer at first - he still retains some of his pirate-like nature, but it's mostly subdued.
- The Hero from Orange Star's perspective.
Vasco RodriguesA recently promoted CO, Vasco would have been a prodigy if he'd wanted to be, but he chose a military career over an academic one. He is level-headed and calm, but somewhat antisocial.His soldier units are fast and powerful but all his indirect-combat units are slow-moving with low firepower. What affect this would have on Mortar Infantry is currently unknown.
- Glass Cannon: Rather, his soldiers are glass cannons, being that they have increased movement ranges and firepower. The Mechanised Infantry in particular, having the strongest attacking stats of all Orange Star soldier units.
- Lightning Bruiser: Again, his soldiers are, especially his Bike Infantry.
- Wouldn't Hit a Girl: Subverted. Though he'd never let a female CO win against him, he is polite to female opponents.
Katalina "KT" DominguezQuiet motormouth with an expertise in computing and robotics. Her origins are shrouded in mystery.Her units gain firepower benefits per terrain star.
- Beware the Quiet Ones - Or she'll turn into a giant ivy plant and strangle you.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer - She only got considered for the job through massive backdoor dealings and calling in a lot of favours.
- Expy - Just like all of River's characters. Her powers are an obvious rehash of Lash, as is her love of robotics.
- In Harmony with Nature - She once turned into a living ivy plant. Long story.
Kari "Kestrel" StevensA girl from a military family, Kestrel wanted to become a pilot like her father. She has a laid-back, teasing personality.Kestrel's air units have increased defensive strength, but her non-air direct units have low attack power.
- Catch Phrase: "Aite", as well as other hipster phrases. Also fond of aviation slang.
Rakshata ChawlaRakshata is a scientist from the India-like state of Grey Meteor. She considers her inventions as her "children" and is generally very laid back. Quite literally, if there's some comfortable furniture aroundHer abilities do not affect any units. Instead, she can deploy three unique units on the battlefield and use her CO Powers to replace them if they are destroyed.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: She really does have like soft furniture just a little too much, despite being one of Blue Moon's top scientists.
Georgy "Anton" AlekseevAnton is a CO with a slight sense of moral superiority, despite his relative newness. He has some confidence issues and talks with a stutter.He doesn't have any day-to-day strengths or weaknesses. He instead relies on his CO Powers, which boost his units strength and HP.
Petr WrangelPetr was the most senior CO in the BM, having joined at the age of 16 and served until his untimely death by assassin to the mature year of 65. Enjoyed grumbling, complaining about new things and tea. Also had a bastard child D serving in Orange Star of whom he never found out really.His strengths were infantry and artillery units, which received both offensive and defensive boosts. On the other side, his ground vehicles were weakened. CO Powers boosted both powers on all units.
Felix "Apollo" AdamsThe son a former senior Blue Moon CO.
Katerina Joanna "Procella" GoryanovaProcella is the "Tsarina General" of Blue Moon, in charge of the whole nation. She tends to let her advisors deal with civillian matters and let her focus on the military. Procella is known for her acute paranoia.Procella's units fight better under cover and as such struggle in open space.
- Alternative Character Interpretation: In-universe: Either cruel, lying and manipulative or elegant war leader.
- Even the Girls Want Her: Hanako, Viola and Eva all seemed to think very highly of her, at least.
- Evil Overlord: Appears to be Joseph's opinion.
- First-Name Basis: With Viola. It used to be both ways, but Viola has been calling Procella by her codename since she came back.
- The Hero from Blue Moon's perspective.
- Sugar and Ice Personality and/or Tsundere: Type A. Although all her relationships with others are purely platonic, she's pretty cold (sometimes outright hostile) towards the other Blue Moon COs. Dart and Hanako are other COs who have seen this, along with her nicer side.
- We Used to Be Friends - With Joseph.
Iosef "Joseph" Georgei PokryshkinJoseph is a rather perfectionist former pilot and as such can appear to be arrogant. He gets agitated very easily when Blue Moon is in danger.His air units are better than anyone else's and he also has an affinity for short-range ground vehicles. His naval units perform poorly, however.
- Face–Heel Turn - For Procella-supporters.
- We Used to Be Friends - With Procella.
Sigrid "Electroma" HennelzenElectroma is the very loud daughter of a wealthy weapons manufacturer. She is scarred and bald after too many close encounters with electricity. She works for Blue Moon's military as a weapons developer.Electroma is good with modern, custom-developed units but poor with traditional/basic units.
- Misfit Lab Rat: All those band-related patches on her trousers imply this somewhat.
Julia "Rustica" OsborneA former city girl who grew weary of her rich lifestyle and left to explore Cosmo Land. After in incident in the mountains where she was saved by her latent CO powers and a nearby patrol, she joined the Blue Moon army. Served as a CO in the Blue Moon Black Ops for a few years, but ended up leaving after a scandal was uncovered, only to return recently.Good at attacking ground units, but her units are poor at hitting air units.
- Armor-Piercing Attack : her CO Power and Super Power allow her to do this.
- But Not Too Foreign: Julia is only half Moonian, her father coming from Orange Star
- Lonely Rich Kid: Was one growing up.
Mira Petra GoryanovaProcella's sister, Mira joined the military after leaving university early. Two years later she started officer training. One year into this training war broke out with Orange Star, ending her officer training prematurely. Mira was appointed to the Alara Range where it was discovered she had the ability to move her troops through hostile weather easily. She was advanced to the final stages of officer training soon after. Following the war she married and moved into civilian government. After Procella was deposed, she was appointed as General of Blue Moon.Mira's units are completely unaffected by the negative effects of weather and gain a small stat boost in snow. Her powers let her call forth snowstorms.
- Expy: Her abilities call to mind Penny/Lily and Olaf.
King Ingvar "Thor" Halgrind IThor is the "King" of Green Earth. He has a interest in other cultures and an open mind, but shows no remorse whatsoever in battle.In combat, his units gradually increase their offensive strength while their defensive strength diminishes.
- Drop the Hammer: As well as carrying a hammer, his CO Powers quite literally do this.
- Glass Cannon: His units rather than himself. They gradually become like this as his CO Power Meter fills.
- The Hero from Green Earth's perspective.
Kaitlyn SterixThe daughter of an air force pilot gone MIA, who has followed in his footsteps in the hopes of finding him. Kaitlyn has attitude. She makes no secret of the fact that she's very confident in her own abilities, and she's quite willing to back up her boasts. She is proud to be a woman, but she doesn't mind being treated as "one of the guys." What she can't stand is being treated as weak or helpless.
- Action Girl: And not afraid to get down to it, either.
- Deadpan Snarker: Kaitlyn doesn't often think highly of other people, and seems glad to let rip on someone when she thinks she can get away with it. She couldn't with Kierra, though, who let her know exactly how she felt.
- Defeat Means Friendship: The recipient of this: after her scuffle with Kierra, Kaitlyn seemed to forge a solid friendship right off the bat. It looks to be the start of a Heterosexual Life Partnership, but depending on who you ask, it may be a little more heated.
- Fiery Redhead: She's delivering on the 'fiery' so far.
- Disappeared Dad: What's interesting in Kaitlyn's case is that she wants to find him even though she has never even seen him before in her life.
- Ace Pilot: Specifically, the "bushwhacker" variant. In fact, Kaitlyn is a Combat Pragmatist in general.
- Singing in the Shower: Alone in her own room.
Natsuki Saito aka Kiku KurosawaNatsuki is a mercenary CO, working for Green Earth. She grew up in a ninja village run by a clan called the Shahouke. She attracted a lot of attention from the criminal underworld and ended up working for a company called Specialist Manufacturing And Research Technologies as an assassin. After her contract was terminated, she was threatened with execution.This forced Natsuki to go undercover and change her identity. She currently operates under the name of Kiku Kurosawa, and was later hired by Green Earth. She is very secretive and ambiguous, giving an aura of fearlessness while hiding her true emotions and vulnerability.When Kiku is commanding, her units always strike first (albeit with less power during her enemy's turn). Her long-distance attacks are also weak.
- Domino Mask: She has one painted on.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Ice-cream.
- Yakuza: Kiku worked with them shortly before she joined SMART.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: SMART tried to pull this on her, forcing her into hiding.
Rebecca "Blitz" FerroA new CO to join Green Earth. Secretly joined the army to try and avenge her dead father, but maintains a polite, cordial appearance to those around her.Her Explosive Weapons are stronger, while Normal Guns are weaker.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy with Aurica
Arne "Osprey" HexA former sky pirate turned CO.His air units are strong but his ground units are weak.
Stevan GavrilovPR manager turned CO with Blue Moon parentage. Was meant to be a member of Wrangel family's branch but left unrealized after player quit. His strong side were cheap units which performed better, and weakness were expensive units that underperformed as result.
- Rousing Speech: Was part of his CO powers.
- Zerg Rush: Invoked. Stevan specialized in cheap units and could raise more of them with his powers.
Amelia "Aurica" RockfordSheppard's childhood friend, Aurica has something of a mysterious aura. She is very similar to Sheppard in that she dislikes internal conflict and tries to keep the peace amongst her fellow COs.Aurica is adept with cheap, light units. She struggles to use heavy, more expensive ones.
- Hair Decorations: She has some small hair clips.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly Girl with Blitz
- Zettai Ryouiki: Grade B or C
Juliet Viola AbandonatoThe former Commander-in-chief of Green Earth, Viola was the last person to hold the rank of "Field Marshal" before Thor took over. She has one of the largest backstories in the RP.Viola was born 25 years prior to the start of the RP to a couple of pest exterminators. As a child she was bullied because of her given name, which made her resent it and prefer to use her middle name. She was successful in her education despite this and finished a degree in toxicology. She was later drafted into the Green Earth military and ended up in an anti-personnel unit.Green Earth and Orange Star were called upon by their counterparts in Omega Land to assist in an anti-terrorism operation. It was during this time that she developed her hatred of Orange Star (due to how they treated her differently due to her relative attractiveness) as well as her CO Powers. Her boss, Sepp Mengele, tried to use her powers to fashion a weapon. He failed, the attempt was covered up and Viola would retain no memory of these events.Viola later worked up to become leader of the Green Earth military, a title which she kept for over a year before having a major psychological breakdown. She has since returned briefly to offer Adrian advice in running the military.Her abilities gave her an attack boost against enemy soldiers but less attack for her own soldiers. Her CO Power damaged low-cost enemy units with Deadly Gas. Her Super Power caused concentrated acid rain to fall and inflict 1-3 damage to all enemy units.
- Confusion Fu: Her SCOP is a minor case. It has a chance of doing 1, 2 or 3HP of damage to enemy units. Most of the time it'll do 2 and averages at 2.1.
- Deadly Gas: Her CO Power contains many forms of toxic gas as well as something to turn it purple.
- Doppelgänger: While it's implied that everyone has one, Viola technically has three: her alternate universe self, Rosabella too due to being identical twins and by extension, Rosabella's alternate counterpart.
- Embarrassing First Name: She was bullied because of her first name. Only a few people have ever been allowed to call her Juliet - only Thor, Procella and family members.
- Evil Twin: Subverted - both her and her twin Rosabella could be considered evil, but for different reasons.
- Double Subverted on her return: she's still hardly nice, but she's not outright evil.
- She's Back, but only a few people outside Green Earth know - only Procella, Rustica and Sigrid.
- Required Secondary Powers: Due to the nature of her powers, she's immune to toxins and all units she controls or are allied to her are protected from her powers. Usually.
- Tag Team Twins: She and Rosabella used to do this all the time.
- Theme Naming: Flowers, as with PanicAttack's other characters.
- Theme Twin Naming: Viola and Rosabella's names and middle names are all Shakespearian.
Christopher "Caligari" DavidsonCaligari is a wandering fellow from Green Earth whose true loyalty is to science. He used to work for Research and Development in Orange Star but later joined Yellow Comet due to their focus on technological development. He is prone to mood swings, but generally jovial. He holds two phDs, in Physics and Medicine, and is a Professor of Physics.He doesn't have any day-to-day abilities, but his powers let him reverse the effects of damage done to them.
- Badass Normal: Unlike the other COs, whose powers stem from their genetic buildup, Caligari's powers come from a machine called the Chronitron Rejuvinator
- Beware the Nice Ones: Beware his serious face.
- Expy: His appearance, personality and mannerisms are based of the the Fifth Doctor.
- For Science!: Caligari is loyal to nobody, just scientific progress.
Sae SakurazakiSae was transferred from Macro Land at the request of Empress Kimura. She respects the words of both Ken and Empress Kimura as law, but will speak out if she feels that they're morally wrong. She is also a shrine attendant and devoted to her beliefs.Sae's strength lies not in her own abilities, but denying her enemies their own. Her powers turn the CO Power system on its head, meaning that when she attacks, she can drain the enemy's power meter rather than fill it.
- Power Nullifier: Her CO Powers reverse the charge of her opponent's powers. Her Super Power gains strength as the enemy's Power Meter empties.
- Religion Is Right and Science Is Wrong: Sae disputes claims that CO Powers come from genetics, instead claiming them to be blessings of the kami.
Cornelius Westonshire, esq.Esquire, as he's simply known, is a CO originally from Green Earth who emigrated to Yellow Comet. He believes that combat should be "gentlemanly" and honourable.Esquire's units fair better in rain and snow, but perform poorly in sunshine or sandstorms.
Katsumi TomikoKatsumi seems to alter between sociable and unapproachable depending on what she's doing. She enjoys tea far more than most other characters but can be a little bit impatient.Katsumi's units can move further than other COs but can't get as many terrain stars.
Juri HanA taekwando practitioner who left her kwan after she injured her instructor when her power activated. She enjoys being provocative and deceiving her enemies, with any relationships with her being purely on her terms.
Hanako MoriHanako is a prodigious scientist who works for Ken. She is knowledgeable in many matters including botany, human biology, military matters, history, art and aikido. She is creative and calm, yet fastidious. Because of this, she was made second-in-command of the Yellow Comet military, below only Ken himself.Hanako used to work as a flower shop assistant at a place called Midori no Hana in her youth. She also worked for many civilian research companies before she joined the Yellow Comet military.Units under her command have increased firepower on plains, forests and coral reefs, but less firepower on roads.
- Alternative Character Interpretation: As with Procella, in-universe example. Either mature, wise and determined to do the best for Yellow Comet or a bloodthirsty dominatrix. Neither are really accurate.
- Badass Longcoat: Now in two flavours! One's Elegant Gothic Lolita influenced, the other is her signature...
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: She might not dress like it in light clothing and bare feet, but she's a damn good military commander and scientist.
- Career Versus Man: Averted - Hanako only shows any interest in starting a relationship with Ken. If they were to marry, Hanako would end up with both a husband AND a promotion, making this a non-issue.
- Covered in Gunge: At the hands of Nicole and her biogeckos.
- Does Not Like Shoes: She only wears shoes (specifically safety boots) while in her lab.
- Expy: She has elements of Lash and Sonja from the Advance Wars games, plus Batman villain Poison Ivy.
- Granola Girl: Subverted - many people assume because she wears natural fabrics (aside from her labcoat), doesn't wear shoes and has plant-related abilities that she must be a hippie. This is despite her being a scientist and military leader.
- Green Thumb: Hanako can manipulate plants and coral to benefit her units.
- Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: With Ryouta
- Meaningful Name: Her name basically translates as "flower child of the forest".
- Meganekko: Hanako usually wears glasses except when she is experimenting, in which case she wears prescription safety goggles.
- Minored in Asskicking: Quite literally, seeing as she studied aikido.
- Misfit Lab Rat: Visual Kei fan and botanist.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Noodles. Specifically, stamina udon, a noodle soup dish made from noodles with meat, vegetables and a self-poaching raw egg.
Aya TsukinoAn orphaned artist, Aya is an introverted person who thinks highly of her art but dismissive of works she was forced to create. She has some trouble when it comes to being sociable but is protective of those younger than herself.Aya's units are weak, but unaffected by weather. Her Super Power allows her to attack at firepower equivalent to full HP, regardless of actual HP.
- Creator Backlash - Mild in-universe example. Aya looks down on her own work if she was forced to make it.
- Meaningful Name - Depending on the kanji used, Aya can mean either "colour" or "design". She's an artist.
- Parental Abandonment - First her parents were killed then her older sister (who took on the role of legal guardian) stopped providing for her and her siblings.
- Weather-Control Machine - Aya is one, minus the whole machine thing.
Shino "Ryouta" AkiyamaRyouta is a former visual kei rocker whose band failed to reach mainstream popularity. He was injured in a car accident and miraculously survived, apparently due to his then-dormant CO Powers. As such he joined the Yellow Comet military.Ryouta's units take less damage from direct attack.
- Ambiguous Gender/Dude Looks Like a Lady/Viewer Gender Confusion - During the balance process and In-Universe, Ryouta has sometimes been confused for a woman. The former may be due to his role being a Crosscast Role, though it was listed on the sheet as male.
- Healing Factor - More powerful than Anton's, but limited to direct-combat units only.
- Good Thing You Can Heal - It saved his life in his backstory.
- Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy - With Hanako
- Shout-Out - His appearance was based on Reita, bassist of Japanese rock band the GazettE - right down to the noseband.
- Trademark Favorite Food - Rice

Elizabeth "Lash" ChurchillThe Circle of Four's second in command and resident batshit crazy 19-year-old science nut. Lash is working with Odin and Stonewall to destabilise Yellow Comet.
"Adder"The only as-yet-unseen member of the Circle. His actions, goals and, well, anything about him are currently unknown.
- Lady Not-Appearing-in-This-Game - Male example. Although he was alluded to in the RP heavily, he never actually showed up.
Adric "Flak" FedorovThe muscle of the Circle, Flak was the leader of Black Hole's armies until he delegated it to Odin. Flak was working with a dissident sect of Green Earth citizens to cause havoc, but was shot and killed during a standoff with Raoul.
Terrance "Eastwood" FarkasFormer field marshall of alt!Green Earth, now President of the alt!World. Whilst retired from the military, he always seems to find himself commanding armies or whatnot.

- Backstory - Lead Green Earth to their eventual demise, all the while caring for his wife, Ironside, and their daughter Katie.
- Blood Brothers - With Odin
- Expy of Comic Book/Gambit - The consummate foreign charmer, although he's much less self-centered.

She is currently residing in Green Earth as Black Hole ambassador. She decided to stand against the Circle's decision to attack Yellow Comet.
- Backstory - Once the forceful, warmongering Tsarina of Blue Moon, tempered by her daughter and a bomb.
- Beautiful All Along - Before her wheelchairification, she was quite the looker.
- Catch Phrase - Well, two Catch Sounds really. "hhh" and "squeak".
- Expy of Von Bolt - At least, appearance wise. Personally she's more along the lines of Sonja or Nell.
Johnathan "Odin" TaylorFormer commander in chief of alt!Orange Star, now Lord-General of Black Hole's armies. Relished the chance to join Black Hole and flex his more ruthless streak, he is currently working with Lash and Stonewall to assault Yellow Comet.
- Backstory - Not so much compared to the others.
- Blood Brothers - With Eastwood.
- Expy of Grand Moff Tarkin - Rule by Fear, very very much so.
Gregor "Stonewall" GordrechFormer Emperor of alt!Yellow Comet, now nothing more than the Circle's errand boy. Deeply resentful of his past actions, but hesitant to rebel against Black Hole for fear of his own life. He was dragged along by Odin and Lash on their crusade to Yellow Comet.
- Always Someone Better - His opinions and ideas are always sidelined or outright ignored. It doesn't help him sleep at night.
- Backstory - Took over alt!Yellow Comet violently, then was forced to surrender two days later. Good job, idiot.
- Bad Dreams - Not just when he's asleep, either. Haunted by a hallucination of his dead comrade.
- Expy of Gaius Baltar - The past tragedies he's been a hand in were never his fault, although his head!Hanako likes to let him know otherwise.
- Stone Wall - It's even his name damnit.
Maria "Eris" OnetteFormerly Odin's second, now chief of intelligence for Black Hole. Rumour has it she has a pretty nasty side to her, but she appears to be able to keep it in check. She's currently in Orange Star, working to maintain relations between them and Black Hole.
Alexandr MolotovLady Ironside's former second in command, now her chief aide. His only allegiance is to Ironside, his proverbial big sister.
Stanley "Knife" Orwell
Emi "Empress" Kobayashi
"Nicole"A rogue scientist who worked on bioweapon research submarine AB04. She created her own mooks called "biogeckos".
- Bio-Augmentation: How the biogeckos came to be.
- The Chessmaster: Subverted since her plan was actually rather stupid.
- Evil Genius: Subverted. While Nicole is one of the most accomplished scientists in the RP universe, but a total idiot when it comes to strategy, or even realising that since Hanako specialised in botany, she's of little value for her plan.
- Fangirl of Hanako.
- Mooks: The biogeckos
