Here is a list of ''original characters'' created for the main story line. Characters from other Magical Girl works can be found on their own show's Character Sheets. Unless said character suitably deviates from canon to deserve mention here.


[[WMG: Good Guys]]

->[[WMG: Akiko Yamaguchi/Star Reverie]]

-> The Magical Girl whose voluntary outting and attempted suicide uncovers the existence of Magical Girls to the world and other Magical Girls

* CombatPragmatist: How many Magical Girls can ''you'' name that use ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome cement trucks]]'' to kill a MonsterOfTheWeek? [[note]] Besides, Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica [[/note]]
* DrivenToSuicide: What starts the whole thing off is her very public skydiving without a parachute.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Subverted - Akiko stopped gaining powers when [[MentorMascot Damarri]] died. At the start of the story she's effectively fighting Season 3/4-level enemies with only early Season 2-equivalent powers.
* ParentalAbandonment: The Yamaguchis thought their daughter was becoming a drug addicted delinquent, what with the unexplained injuries, missed school, being out all hours of the night etc, and basically kicked her out. It'll be interesting if they meet up again after Akiko outs herself as an MG and tries to kill herself on live TV.
* ThanatosGambit: Akiko's mindset as she prepaired to jump was this: If there ''are'' other Magical Girls out there, they'll save me, and help me. If there ''aren't''... Then I won't have to worry about the Nightmare Factory anymore, ''and'' I'll have warned the world of their existence.
* TraumaCongaLine: Non-standard example in that the Nightmare Factory's entire plan actually revolves around purposely doing this to Akiko in order to push her into the Type C ending of this trope.
* TripleShifter: Deconstructed in that her Magical Girl activities, and such triple shifting, are a key reason why Akiko's personal life and mental state went to hell.
* WillfullyWeak: When she realized that the Nightmare Factory's nightmares [[LevelScaling were just as strong as she was,]] Akiko began scaling back on her abilities and became more of a CombatPragmatist instead.

->[[WMG: Damarri]]

-> Akiko's familiar, a magical Tapir.

* MentorMascot: Belonging to Akiko. Unfortunately never gets to finish teaching her how to use her powers...
* PosthumousCharacter: Damarri [[TearJerker was killed]] five years prior to the start by Akiko's previous enemy, the [[CircusOfFear Carnival of Blood]].

->[[WMG: Shoutan Hikari]]
-> Daughter of [[Literature/SailorNothing Shoutan Himei and Shoutan Seiki]]. A [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Puella Magi]] contracted by Sanbei in the original version of Arc I. Time will tell if this is maintained in the new version.

-> [[WMG: The Yamaguchis]]
-> Akiko's parents and Grandmother. The former, Yuuki and Aki Yamaguchi, put her away in a home for 'delinquent children' when the side effects of her secret MagicalGirl activities started to affect family reputation. The latter disagreed with the action.

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Yuuki Yamaguchi, when he watched Akiko outting herself on TV. [[AllThereInTheManual There is also a scene in the threads]] [[ covering Mom watching the same broadcast, with the same reaction.]]
* ParentalAbandonment: They didn't toss Akiko ''literally'' on the streets, just put her in a home full of ''genuine'' delinquents. [[SarcasmMode Which is totally different]]. If it helps, had they known what Akiko was REALLY going through, they ''might'' have reacted differently.
* ParentsAsPeople: They tossed their daughter into a reform school, but they weren't prepared to deal with a girl who couldn't explain her bruises.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Yuuki himself. Just wants to please his hyper-traditional, dead father. This is what lead him to decide to put family Honor above familial attachments.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Granny Yamaguchi, Yuuki's mother. Implied to have manipulated the matchmaking process to get Yuuki and Aki to get engaged.

-> [[WMG: [[FanNickname Team Kasumi]]]]
-> A team of magical Girls based in Nagasaki. Lead by a Magical Girl by the name of Kasumi who has a special connection to Akiko Yamaguchi

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Kasumi [[spoiler:was supposed to be Akiko's teammate, but she moved away and Damarri died]].

--> [[WMG: Yuko Caddel]]
--> A [[MagicalGirlWarrior Magical Woman]] who discovered Team Kasumi in Nagasaki a few years ago, and is currently acting as a mentor to the girls.
* ButNotTooForeign: Half-Japanese on her mother's side, half-Scottish on her father's.
* HandicappedBadass: At the time of Arc I, is recovering in the hospital from an attack on their current enemies.
* ReligiousBruiser: A minister of the Anglican Church.

[[WMG: Bad Guys]]

-> [[WMG: The Nightmare Factory]]

* EldritchLocation: The individual factories of the Nightmare Factory. Anyone that walks in will be scanned for what would make the most effect on their psychies. While the nightmares are prepped, the victims are subjected to AlienGeometries, [[EnclosedSpace Enclosed Spaces]], and various [[SinisterScrapingSound haunting]] [[HearingVoices sounds]] to keep them off edge. The only way to survive going into one is to either have already dealt with your darkest fear(s) beforehand and be able to NoSell what is given to you, or prey that the Nightmare makes a mistake in the middle of the act. The latter is how [[Franchise/LyricalNanoha Vita]] [[ was able to become the]] [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Magical Girl]] during [[ATragedyOfImpulsiveness the botched first raid]] on the Nightmare Factory.
* MindRape: Their modus operandi. Use of psychological warfare as their standard attack strategy makes them potentially one of the most dangerous single opponents the Alliance will ever face.
* MobileMaze: In the individual factories, anyone that breaks in will be subjected to an ever-shifting layout if they don't pay attention.
* [[invoked]] NightmareFuel: {{Invoked|Trope}}. Their usual operation mode is bringing the deepest fears of their victims.
* ShoutOut: This may not have been intended, but the factories work the same way as The Room in [[Film/FourteenOhEight 1408]].
* TalkToTheFist: Subverted, sometimes this just makes things worse.

[[WMG:Questionable Canonicity]]

In the process to streamline and revise Arc I, certain characters are currently in the balance of remaining in canon, or [[DeletedScene being left on the cutting room floor]].

-> [[WMG: Jasper]]
-> The forgotten daughter of Queen Beryl and the {{brainwashed}} Prince Endymion.

* AntiVillain: Her main reason for opposing the Alliance is her association of healing magic with brainwashing. It's not, but nobody has a chance to tell her this before she starts causing trouble and things [[FromBadToWorse spiral out of control]].
* DarkMagicalGirl: [[spoiler: Complete with HeelFaceTurn]]
* DarkMessiah: Believes in ThePowerOfFriendship despite being a villain.
* ParentalAbandonment: Usagi and Mamoru never even knew she existed until she made her debut appearance.
* PragmaticVillainy: Her solution to accidentally provoking the Alliance? Make some friends!

->[[WMG: Sanbei]]
-> A demon wearing the form of an [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Incubator]] he killed once.

* ChewToy: For Jasper after his plots were defeated by the Literature/SailorNothing crew.
* CurbstompBattle: VS Dusty.
* ManipulativeBastard
