Characters from the manga ''Manga/AnatoliaStory''!


[[folder: Characters from our time]]
!!Yuri Suzuki aka Yuri Ishtar

-->Voiced by: Creator/MinamiTakayama (CD Drama)

* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Naturally. When she's stung by [[spoiler:non-fatal]] scorpions as a result of a prank pulled on her by some princesses who want to be made Kail's queen, the news gets out and most of the town tries to stampede the palace with scorpion sting remedies for their beloved Ishtar.
* ActionSurvivor: Despite relaying more on her wits and her kind heart than on physical fighting, Yuri learns swordmanship and archery and she's already rather agile due to having been a promising gymnast in Japan. [[spoiler: This is sealed when she's named Commander-in-Chief of the military.]]
* AllLovingHero: She manages to be both this ''and'' GuileHero, as her kindness and pluck gains her ''many'' devoted followers.
* BarrierMaiden: Nakia sees her as this, considering that her blood is the key to the curse she wants to cast.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Sure, she may ''seem'' very fragile, but if pushed, she can become quite fierce. Especially noticeable during a subarc of various princesses coming to Hattusa as prospective wives and/or concubines for Kail. She is feeling inferior, as she has no social standing compared to them, but when one of their pranks goes too far, she really bares her teeth at them.
* {{Bifauxnen}}: A result of her tendency to wear the clothing of young boys, as well as her being skinnier and more flat-chested than the average Hittite girl.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards her first friend in Hattusa, the servant boy Tito. She does NOT take it well when Queen Nakia tries to use the poor kid as a her pawn. [[spoiler: And even ''less'' when Tito is first slated for execution for trying to kill her while BrainwashedAndCrazy, and later when he's murdered in a really cruel manner.]]
* ConflictingLoyalties: Return to Japan or stay with beloved prince? ''That is the question!''
* CoolBigSis: She becomes this for Alexandra, who actually calls her "Sister". She also has one of her own in the form of Ramses's sister, Hathor Nefert.
* DamselInDistress: Specially at the start. What do you expect when a schoolgirl without any self-defence training lands in a warrior empire like Hattusa?
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: She is a girl from the 20th century AD stuck in the 14th century BC.
* GuileHero: Is ''very'' good at outwitting nearly every opponent she comes up against.
* HollywoodHomely: In-universe example. She goes from being considered very pretty by modern-day Japanese standards to being ridiculed for being small, plain, and not as voluptuous as is considered fashionable among Hitites.
* HotConsort: She must pose as Kail's concubine [[spoiler:and later becomes his legal wife.]]
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Kail can easily pick her up and carry her around.
%%* IChooseToStay
* LadyOfWar: Is supposed to be this as an incarnation of Ishtar - the Goddess of War. [[spoiler: And she is.]]
* NiceToTheWaiter: Yuri usually surprises others by how kind she is to her servants. She views her maids as her best friends and trusts them with everything. When she stays in Egypt temporarily, the other maids are shocked that she doesn't demand one of them be whipped or starved for spilling water on her dress.
%%* PluckyGirl
* PregnantBadass: While she didn't know it initially, she is this during [[spoiler:the Beida subarc and shortly before, leading the royal army]].
%%* SheCleansUpNicely: When she ''does'' put on more girlish clothes... wow.
* ShipperOnDeck: She ships both Kash/Ursula and [[OneTrueThreesome Ryuhi/Kikkuri/Shala.]]
* StarCrossedLovers: Yuri ''believes'' her and Kail to be this as she is to go back to Japan and tries not to fall in love. [[spoiler: Implied on [[ThePowerOfLove tries]]...]]
* {{Tomboy}}: Generally feels more comfortable dressing in boy clothing, which leads most to believe she's actually a very young boy.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: She still has some pretty romantic views of love and marriage that she carried over from modern times, which she isn't shy about sharing with other female characters (for instance, telling Princess Alexandra that she shouldn't be with any man she doesn't love).
* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: When the jealous prospect brides put scorpions in her bed ''the night when Kail was going to sleep in her room'', Yuri ''get really fucking pissed off'' and angrily storms in the room they're in, shouting that they can treat her in any way they want '''but they better not endanger Kail'''.
* WeakButSkilled: She has no physical fighting skills of her own, yet manages to become Genre Savvy enough to dodge murder/rape attempts several times and survive in this world she has just arrived in.

!!The Suzuki family (Mr. and Mrs. Suzuki, Mari Suzuki, Eimi Suzuki)
* AffectionateNickname: Eimi calls Yuri "Yuu-chan"
%%* GirlNextDoor: Mari and Eimi.
* GoodParents: The Suzukis seem to be rather nice people who love their three girls dearly.
%%* {{Meganekko}}: Mari

%%* NiceGuy
%%* RomanticFalseLead
* SettleForSibling: Marries Yuri's little sister Eimi.
* VictoriousChildhoodFriend: Zig-zagged. He ''was'' this, until Yuri was rather abruptly sucked into a puddle of water while they were on a date.

[[folder: The Royal Family of Hattusa]]

!![[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mursili_II Kail Mursili]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/KazuhikoInoue (CD Drama)

* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Although not always to quite the fanatical degree that Yuri inspires in subjects and strangers alike.
%%* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking

* BlowYouAway: Has wind powers that he inherited from his MissingMom Henti.
%%* CrazyJealousGuy:
%%* TheGoodKing
* HandsomeLech: His first appearance in the series has him hide Yuri by pretending to be passionately kissing her. When the guards leave, he offers to continue for real, because the girl he was supposed to be meeting never showed up.
%%* LadykillerInLove: Later, in his own way.
* LookingForLoveInAllTheWrongPlaces: He's has had many relationships with women, however none have been long-lasting. He has vowed to only take one legal wife, and since he's all but assured to be the next king, he wants to make sure that said wife has the [[NiceGirl goodness]], [[TheSmartGirl intelligence]], and [[SilkHidingSteel inner strength]] to handle [[TheHighQueen holding the second-most powerful position in the kingdom.]] At one point, [[spoiler: Princess Guzel tells Yuri that Kail never actually [[SleepCute fell asleep]] with any of the women he was with, ''Guzel herself included'', implicitly because he wasn't able to let down his guard enough.]] Therefore, the fact that Kail [[spoiler: ''is'' willing to sleep with Yuri in ''both'' senses (as in, having sex with her ''and'' spending the night in her room)]] is very telling.
%%* MrFanservice

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Notable as one of few rules who gives a damn about what happens to his subjects.
%%* WarriorPrince

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: {{Averted}}. She is fully aware of how Kail and Yuri's bond works and uses it to her full advantage whenever she can. She does have her moments when [[spoiler:she realizes that Kail loves Yuri so deeply, he would have her executed as a HumanSacrifice to bring Yuri back... [[OhCrap She nearly crumbles under the pressure.]]]]
%%* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen
* HiddenWeapons: She has a ring where she hides a poisoned needle.
%%* HotWitch
* MakingASplash: She has control over water.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: In her backstory. She was forced by her father to marry the king of the empire that ruined her homeland of Babylonia (and who was old enough to be her own father), and was left lonely and homesick in a strange land, while her husband was more interested in the wives he already had. But after a few years, the scared teenage girl grew into the BigBad.
* WickedStepmother: Trying to kill her stepsons so her own son will become King.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Due to her aforementioned past, she can be seen as such.

!![[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suppiluliuma_I King Suppililuma]]

%%* PosthumousCharacter

!![[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arnuwanda_II Prince Sari Arnuwanda]]

-->Voiced by: Hiroshi Itou (CD Drama)

* InadequateInheritor: While not exactly an idiot, Arnuwanda is not in physical condition to reign so his full-brother Kail and half-brother Zannanza [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking have to help him]]. [[spoiler: When he ''does'' becomes the King, he appoints Kail as his heir as he still has no children of his own.]]
* SacrificialLion: His murder is committed [[spoiler:by Urhi]], but Yuri gets blamed. Ursula then [[spoiler:[[TakingTheHeat willingly]] [[SilentScapegoat takes the blame]] to save Yuri, and is executed in her place.]]

!![[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zannanza Prince Zannanza Hattusili]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/HikaruMidorikawa (CD Drama)

%%* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Becomes this after unwittingly drinking Nakia's Rose Water. It leads to him abducting Yuri, carrying her across the desert with no food or water, and [[AttemptedRape attempting to rape her]].
* DoomedByCanon: Sadly, anyone who knows about the historical Zannanza can tell you there was never any chance of him [[spoiler:marrying the Egyptian princess...]]
* HeroicBastard: Son of the King and a palace maid.
* IfICantHaveYou: Acts this way towards Yuri, but only after drinking the Rose Water.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: For both Yuri (who he secretly pines for) and Kail (who he loves as a brother). As much as he wishes Yuri were his, he doesn't want to hurt them by breaking the two apart.

!!Prince Juda Haspasrupi

-->Voiced by: Creator/IkueOtani (CD Drama)

* AbdicateTheThrone: Towards the end of the series, [[spoiler:he does this to, once and for all, bring a stop to Nakia's attempts at having her bloodline rule the Hittite Empire]].
* AdorablyPrecociousChild: Despite being 14, he's so cute that he pulls this very well.
* BreakTheCutie: The poor kid really gets dragged through a lot of crap, thanks to his mom's plans.
* CallingTheOldManOut: A truly massive one, after [[spoiler: Rusafa's death. Juda [[HeroicBSOD breaks down]] and tries to [[SelfMadeOrphan kill Nakia right there]], and when he's stopped he ''publically'' calls her out on her bullshit, then renounces to his own right to the throne.]]
%%* CheerfulChild: Most of the time.
* CreepyChild: After [[spoiler:he's forced by his mother to drink the Black Water and becomes {{Brainwashed}}.]]
* HeIsAllGrownUp: One of the illustrations in the last volume shows his adult self.
* KidAnova: Already has a wife and at least two concubines at age 14. [[spoiler: Few later, he marries Alexandra.]]
* MamasBabyPapasMaybe: As Nakia loses power, people begin to gossip more and more openly about how they think he's Urhi's son with her. The fact that Juda and Urhi have exactly the same hair color and that Urhi is the person closest to Nakia really don't help matters. [[spoiler:It turns out he really is the king's legitimate son, since Urhi's a eunuch who was castrated ''before'' coming to the Empire.]]
* ModestRoyalty: He's a really sweet kid and doesn't want to reign, aspiring to be his beloved half-brother Kail's NumberTwo.
* UnwittingPawn: More than once, [[spoiler: but in a subversion he plays the role mostly when brainwashed by his own mom.]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/HiroYuki (CD Drama)

%%* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Dammit, Nakia
* CynicismCatalyst: His death is what makes Yuri become mentally stronger and more determined to fight against Nakia, and while his three sisters want revenge at first, they then become devoted to Yuri.

%%* FlayingAlive
%%* KillTheCutie
* IOweYouMyLife: Becomes devoted to Yuri when she saves him from being executed [[spoiler:for trying to kill her while brainwashed.]]


-->Voiced by: Creator/AiOrikasa (CD Drama)

* BerserkButton: In ''Kikkuri's Missing Days'', we see it's not a good idea to refer to her as a "court lady".
* BigBrotherInstinct:
** Upon finding out that [[spoiler:Kikuri]] has been romantically/sexually involved with ''both'' of her sisters, [[spoiler:to the point of getting one pregnant (and later the other)]], she coolly tells him that he'd ''better set about looking after both the twins''.
** Also, when Yuri [[spoiler: screamed Hadi's name when Kail was about to rape her]], Hadi swallowed her fears and went to help her, managing to [[spoiler: get to Kail's head so he would stop]]. To put it on perspective: Hadi could have been ''seriously'' punished, if not executed, for standing up to [[spoiler: one of the highest-ranked members of the Hittite royalty]], but [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight she managed]] to set her well-justified fright aside and protected Yuri when she needed it.
%%* CoolBigSis: To Yuri and her own little sisters.
%%* MaidAndMaiden: The Maid to Yuri's Maiden.
%%* PluckyGirl
%%* {{Revenge}}
* YouKilledMyFather: She and the twins initially were angry at Yuri as they blamed her for Tito's death. The fact that Urhi egged them on didn't help. When the real killer is revealed, the three girls pledge themselves to Yuri instead.

!!Ryuhi and Shala

-->Voiced by: Creator/ChiemiChiba and Creator/MachikoToyoshima (Ryuhi, CD Drama) and Yukiko Fujikawa (Shala, CD drama)

%%* ActionGirl: Of the CuteBruiser[=/=]BadassAdorable variety.

'''Kail:''' Hmph.
* GuileHero: He's ''very'' good at outwitting his opponents. [[spoiler:To the point where he manages to capture Urhi, preserve vital evidence to dethroning Nakia, ''and'' free Juda from the Black Water mind control, all in one fell swoop and with some planning.]]
* LettingHisHairDown: As a "disguise" when he tries to capture [[spoiler:Urhi]].
%%* LongHairedPrettyBoy
* ShipperOnDeck: Another Yuri/Kail fan.
* TheSmartGuy: He's well aware that he's better off using his brains to serve Kail, rather than physical weapons.
* WhatTheHellHero:
** Several times to Kail, most notably when Kail is seriously considering riding to save Yuri from Nakia's forces (which, since Yuri was under suspicion of assassinating the king, would lead to Kail getting in trouble and possibly ruining his chances at being the great king he dreamed of), Illbani threatens to slit his own throat. His reasoning is that he has served Kail faithfully, wanting desperately to see Kail fulfill his dream of making the empire great. If Kail will throw that all away, he has no reason to live.
** This is generally his reaction after Kail freaks out on the idea of Yuri going back to Japan and tries to rape her.


-->Voiced by: Creator/YukoNagashima (CD Drama)

* BodyDouble: Sorta, as she's introduced as a "false Ishtar" by Nakia.
%%* DefeatMeansFriendship: Thank you, Yuri and Kail.
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: She lies and pretends that [[spoiler:she assassinated King Aruwanda, even though she knows that she'll be immediately executed]].

* FaceDeathWithDignity: As she's [[spoiler:in the gallows]], Ursula keeps her cool even when Ryuhi and Shala are desperately attempting to stop her execution.

* HeroicSacrifice: Willingly goes TakingTheHeat so Yuri won't be unfairly [[spoiler:executed for the murder of King Arnuwanda.]]

When he laments that the bust will be incomplete, she tells him not to worry because she highly doubts anyone would bother looking at such a thing.

She's the princess of the Arzawa lands; when her mother the Queen was told how a [[{{Bifauxnen}} "young boy"]] had been conquering their towns left and right, Alexandra snuck out and [[PleaseIWillDoAnything offered herself]] to "serve" Yuri ([[GettingCrapPastTheRadar implicitely]] [[SexSlave in a sexual manner]]), genuinely but ''very'' misguidedly hoping to help her mom and people. Naturally, Yuri had no intention of keeping her for such a reason, and decided to make her [[LadyInWaiting one of her ladies-in-waiting]] instead.

* PuppyLove: Subverted - she and Juda ''do'' get together, but only ''after'' [[spoiler:they stop being young enough to fit the trope.]]
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Aspires to be this, wishing at one point that she could join Yuri on the battle field. Ilbani tells her that, [[ActionSurvivor Yuri]] aside, princesses shouldn't go to war.

* SheIsAllGrownUp: Her older self and an adult!Juda show up in an illustration. Adult Alexandra is ''gorgeous''.
