The Grim Reaper and the main character of the BlazBlue series. Was heading to Ikaruga along with Taokaka, but ends up losing her and after some encounter with Rachel, felt like being accosted with way lots of people. He's also being 'stalked' by Luna & Sena.And as of the second day... he still find himself being stalked by vigilantes, fighting over and over and over again.
"If 'justice' is wrong, I will fight against it! If 'love' is wrong, I will fight against it!! And if 'the world' is wrong... I will fight against it!"
Former Major of NOL, has since renounced his position and at first trained with Jubei, but the training got abruptly suspended mid-way and he travelled to Ikaruga alone. After an encounter with Litchi, Jin decided to do his best to disrupt Hazama's plan by depriving him of all his manipulation victims, making them turn against him.By Day 2, it would seem that Jin has slowly changed, getting some Hidden Heart of Gold that pops up some time. He's still a jerk, though. He's also gotten a bounty on his head, garnered a lot of enemies and as of now, strives to get stronger without being too dependent on Yukianesa's power. By Day 3, he confronted his family, managed to reunite with Tsubaki and now strove to destroy the world that NOL 'Hazama and Cronies' tried to bring.
Disproportionate Retribution: Granted, Litchi was blocking Hakumen, not Jin. Jin's response was: "Kill her brutally before she can interrupt again." Though he changed his mind.
Even Evil Has Standards: Claimed that while he was BAD as the Major in NOL, he'd never go as far as molesting girls.
Fan Nickname: In-series. He refused to call the current NOL as 'NOL', but 'Hazama and Cronies'
Freak Out: He didn't take Tsubaki's kidnapping well.
Heel-Face Turn: Has been inducing this to many NOL members; thus far including Litchi, Abel and then Tsubaki.
Jerkass: He still is, except with Tsubaki. And he's been less of a jerk to everyone else, even to Nu. Or at least, he learns some self-control
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: However, he's shown some signs of gold heart, especially when he slowly started to let off on Litchi (after trying to kill her in cold blood) and inspired her to grow some backbone, eventually culminating in full circle when he actually gave her advice to lose her pressure and shares his chest for her to cry on.
Jerk Justifications: Expanded from merely Not Good with People, leaning to Other type: He thought everyone just saw him for his position in NOL and family, thus with the exception of Tsubaki, he had no friends and it's completely OK to be a massive dick to them.
Obfuscating Stupidity: As revealed later, turns out Jin was 'faking' on being a needy brother when he realized something was off with Saya.
Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Oni to Ragna's Red. Manifested in that Jin's plan to defeat NOL/Terumi is to deprive him of all his manipulation victims, leaving him with as little support as possible.
You Are Too Late: The reason why Jin was not in the big brawl was that he was stalled by Ein.

AKA Mu-12, the 12th Murakumo Unit and former lieutenant of NOL. Currently, she's being escorted by the people of Sector Seven for some reason to Ikaruga. And yet some people seems to still want a piece of her.
"I told myself I would never be in this position... I suppose lying to myself is something I've become quite adept at as of late..."
Vampire mistress of the Alucard House. She's watching Ragna over on his journey, but later heard of the return of an ancient enemy responsible for the death of her father, the vampire Tazuka. She ends up teaming up with Ragna again, assisting him in battle along with her butler Valkenhayn.But then, she took a detour and instead struck an alliance with Kokonoe, asking her to create a teleportation device made of pure science.
A member of the Kaka clan. Was told by Jubei to accompany Ragna, but ends up getting in a lot of trouble such as getting lost. Being a Kaka clan, however, she became vulnerable of the influences of Titan Chimera. She later ends up captured by Relius, brainwashed and given the Four Gods Ars Magus Byakko.
The Voiceless: As an aftereffect of the brainwashing. She's past it.
Played by: TM
AKA The Red Devil of Sector Seven. He's under the order of Kokonoe to head to Ikaruga, escorting Noel Vermillion. Like usual, Tager carries out his duty without much questions.
Heroic RROD: Subversion. Tager does have a RROD for overheating, but the reason he did that wasn't because of something heroic, but because a Titan possessed him to get angry and get over his limit. Though he got better.
"In all, I just want everyone to be safe. I know this is right, but the things that might be done to achieve this might make me feel remorse in the future. But I will smile knowing that I assured the well-being of people."
A kind hearted doctor from Orient Town who became desperate enough to join NOL to get the cure for her lover Arakune, despite how much it disgusted her. She was at first assigned by Relius to kill his son Carl, but planned to just tell him to hide, but then she gets interrupted by Jin, is threatened to pull a Heel-Face Turn and she did, at first just 'being forced', but she fully embraced her goodness once more after realizing how selfish and spineless she was before and hoped to change.She is later captured by Relius and put through horrific torture and humiliation, culminating in a creation of her clone based on her selfish side, and temporarily lost her will to live after witnessing the clone burn down Orient Town to ground, until she regained it thanks to the help and counseling by none other than Nine. She later helped Nine destroy the Titan Banshee to save Linhua and confronted the clone to make her pay for her crimes.
The Atoner: After quitting NOL, she practically wants to make amends to those she abandoned.
Apologises Alot: As a result, she tends to ask for forgiveness for those she abandoned, and it's not a short list.
Break the Cutie: Big Time. She was forced to watch Orient Town burn to ground by her clone below and along the way, she learns that the clone would do much more atrocities just to save Arakune, especially at cost of her own friends. Also nearly had one when she nearly killed Bang in accident.
Played by: Giant Brother (Now played by Ashton Rockwell)
"Infection malaise, cauterise contaiN! I go necessity."
Former scientist of Sector Seven turned Eldritch Abomination, captured by Relius for some reason. Was beaten back a lot of times into submission, until the influence of Titan Chimera went too strong for the insects surrounding him and he managed to escape for whatever reason unknown...
Brainwashed and Crazy: In a way that was actually beneficial. It's only thanks to Chimera's influence that Arakune could escape from Relius' clutches (though only when he's not looking)
Character Development: He's gotten a less crazy about himself and thanks to some kinship with Han, he's much more of a pleasant man.
You may know my name. But so too does ever evildoer who every dreamt of walking the streets of Kagutsuchi. I dare say you would be hard pressed to find someone who has not heard of The Divine Lightning of Justice!
A ninja from Ikaruga, and is now heading to protect the town once more. He was eventually reunited with his Young Master Satoshi Tenjou, as well as changing his overall view on how to love his beloved Litchi. His nail was later stolen by the 'scientist' Otoya.
Manly Tears, I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Then evolves into these, after realizing that love does not always mean marriage, and decided to just help/protect Litchi as an expression of his love henceforth.
Vigilante, a boy-puppeteer who is the son of Relius. He heads for Ikaruga after hearing Ragna is heading there, and to settle a score with his father. There are bound to be a lot of reveals that he has yet to know, be it relieving and harsh...
The main hero of the Six Heroes, and Jin Kisaragi from an alternate timeline. He planned to meet up with Noel Vermillion within Ikaruga, waiting for her to arrive. Instead, he got ambushed by Terumi, Relius and Phantom, and gets caught and is being coaxed to help them solve the problem with Chimera... with Tsubaki being the leverage. But once Tsubaki was rescued, he's back on track in the path of goodness.
Badass in Distress: Is currently caught, but justified that he's fighting Terumi, Relius and Phantom at the same time. But he's bidding his time to strike back...
Face-Heel Turn: Is forced to join Terumi's group to preserve Tsubaki's life. He got better.
The 13th Murakumo Unit, managing to escape from the Cauldron and attacked Noel and her current friends. Is later captured by Hazama and had her memory erased, and made to forget Ragna and be clingy on Saya instead.However, while wandering, she remembered her love with Ragna after meeting him, although clingier with Saya. The new aspect of brainwashing turns out to be backfiring for Hazama and Relius as when Jin claims that they are manipulating Saya, Nu resolved to oppose them.
Brainwashed: Her memory and lifelink gets removed, and she acts like a bubbly girl.
Played by: BeaverDeity
The 11th Murakumo Unit, with her original personality and soul restored, and recently just woke up, broke out of the lab where she's being rebuilt out of fear of being subjected to horrible tests. Then she gets caught by Nu, but then was rescued and seemed to form a relationship with the werewolf Nathan.
"To even propose I come with you like a coward is an insult! If you will take me back... you will have to do it by force!"
Daughter of the Yayoi family, First Lieutenant and leader of the 0th Squad "Wings of Justice". Was actually unhappy with the current happening with NOL, but chose to serve them anyway out of sense of duty... until Jin meet her alone and convinces her. And in the next day, she has learned NOL's corruption and when she's kidnapped, she refused to return and be defiant against them... but it led her to face the wrath of her father and fell amnesiac along the way. She's eventually cured of it and now struggled to cleanse the NOL from the corruption rampart within.
Redemption Demotion: Justified. Jin refused to give the Izayoi book back to her because it has taken a lot from her. So she's now stuck with just dagger, no Izayoi.
Worf Had the Flu: Tazuka attacked her when she had blurry vision and not using Izayoi's full power (since the book was removed from her), causing Tsubaki to be defeated and taken captive.
Played by: TM
Head of the NOL Intelligence Department, was actually one of the Six Heroes. Still jovially serving NOL, but plans something devious. Is still the same as he was in the original series.Recently, he attained a remnant of Amaterasu, increasing his power along with Relius.
Played by: Sword Goddess
Triple Agent from Sector Seven, now on Sector Seven's side and concentrates in assisting Noel in her journey.
Large Ham: Her narration seems to be kind of hammy and overpraise herself a lot, Makoto style.
Breaking the Fourth Wall: Much like Taokaka and Bang, when Makoto's around, you KNOW that the narration is gonna become a LOT more interesting...
Troll: Apparently she learns a thing or two from Hazama... she just trolls the bad guys though.
Nothing but a pack of lies. She trolled her friends back at the academy and she trolled them HARD. Especially Noel.
Valkenhayn R. Hellsing
Played by: TM
Butler of Rachel, a werewolf. He continually stays by Rachel's side and was targeted by fellow Hero Nine, but survived. He also somehow sensed the influence of Titan Chimera.
Child with Split Personality problem, with the soul of one of the Six Heroes Trinity residing at them. Unfortunately, Trinity was captured by Phantom, and currently Luna & Sena are following Ragna around.

"I need another lolly....."
Top researcher of Sector Seven and the one who gave the order to Tager to head to Ikaruga. Jubei's daughter.Her mind has become much more unstable that secretly she tried creating a clone of Black Beast that is controlled with the means of science. At first using it to exact her revenge, the fires of Orient Town made her switch target into her ex-apprentice Litchi. However, before that could happen, she stumbled on Ashton, and then Rachel proposed a deal about making a mass-teleportation device...
Ignored Epiphany: As she still couldn't let go of her vengeance, rather than fixing things with Litchi, she ended up experimenting a science-controlled Black Beast
This Is Unforgivable!: Albeit being tricked. Kokonoe didn't take the fires of Orient Town well and swore to hunt Litchi down.
Played by: TM
One of the Six Heroes, a bipedal cat. He attempted to train Jin, but the training ends disrupted midway. He later advised Jin a bit on how he dealt with Litchi; and was later seen helping Tager's group against Dr. Stitches, before trying to get Jin again.
For those who cannot back their claims up are nothing more than a pathetic whiner, fated only to lose.
The utterly ruthless, perfectionist father of Carl Clover and a Colonel of NOL. Had a good deal of time manipulating several people and experimenting on his prisoners (Arakune and recently Taokaka). Seems like to have an interest in reviving one of his failed projects and make it successful, with the help of his apprentice Otoya Yukihiko.He receives a power boost from Amaterasu's remnant and later spearheaded the capture of four traitors, one of them being Litchi. Afterwards, he cloned her and had the clone burn down Orient Town if the clone wanted to save Lotte Carmine. It's also revealed that he used the similar method to create Phantom out of Nine.
Kick the Dog: The prison scene, while not overly brutal for the trope below, shows this for Relius. First off, he forced Hakumen to punch a defenseless, tied up Litchi in the name of 'punishing her for her acts in the end of Continuum Shift' (again, Tsubaki becomes the hostage for it), thereby ruining Hakumen's status and pride as a hero (reduced into some sort of hitman)... and then orders it that Noel, Nox and Makoto ALL WATCH.
Moral Event Horizon: Crosses yet another when he declares Project Four Gods failure, and everyone involved and their families are to be killed... all just to remove the stain of his perfect record.
His brutal torture to Taokaka might also count. And Tao didn't quite do anything nasty to him...
His biggest one is his whole series of torture to Litchi.Click for an overly long description of the treatment as a testimony of how big he jumped First, after capturing her, he had Hakumen, being a hero, punch her out while tied up. And when that wasn't enough, he gave her a superpowered beating and Electric Torture (see Shout-Out), all after having Tazuka strip her to nothing but her undergarments. And then... he created a clone of her, which her negative traits being dominant, then ordered the clone to attack and destroy Litchi's friends so they lose trust on her, undermine Sector Seven... all if she wants to save Lotte. And the first order before all that... To burn Orient Town to ground. It got even worse when Hazama butts in and made Litchi watch all those. But no doubt, with this, Relius performed a huge leap that either puts him in the same place or surpassed Hazama in terms of depravity.
"You're not still mad that I made the Nox you got trapped in are you? It's not MY fault you fiddled with it so much you got trapped in it. I warned you quite enough about that you know. I mean, I WAS going to help you, but you were being such a BRAT about how it was MY fault, so my motivation went down and I kinda died before I could really help you...so...this is the least you can do to repay me for all the times you annoyed the HELL out of me."
Terumi's assistant who took the form and memories of Nine of the Six Heroes. Terumi brought her back and she joins in whatever he's siding. Her character suddenly went more aggressive and bitchy compared to her past incarnation and it seems that she's planning something really evil by herself behind Terumi's back.
Big Damn Heroes: Attempted to pull one for Litchi against Jin... but then, gets interrupted by Relius before she could reveal Arakune's location.
One of the Six Heroes. After being killed, her body and DNA is used to create Phantom and was cursed so long that she's a ghost she'll always see Phantom's actions doing a mockery to her image. She used the alias 'Nanaha Chikyuu' as not to blow her identity.With the help of Lambda and later Litchi, Nine managed to restore her backup second body and inhabit it, and now she's out to bring down Phantom.
And I Must Scream: She stays as a ghost, and is forced to watch Phantom make up mockeries of her image while she can't do anything very significant... not a pleasant sight. Especially when Phantom wants to kill her husband and snatch her daughter.
Author's Saving Throw: Subverted. The original RP-er of Phantom actually thought a cosmetic-based magic witch bitch Phantom is AWESOME, while other RP-ers were appalled that it was defiling Nine's role, thus the RP-er of Nine came up with a more in-character Nine. This is followed by the latter RP-er of Phantom in Character Rerailment.
Defrosting Ice Queen: According to her backstory, she became less temperamental thanks to Jubei and learning the joy of being a mother. She still have some temperament though, and sometimes could get a bit cocky.
Theme Naming: Whereas Noel took her move names from Norse Mythology, Nine took her move names from Greek Mythology, whereas for normal moves, their names were omitted or combined (Pegas from 'Pegasus', Taurusa from 'Minotaur' and 'Medusa'), but goes full names for Distortion Drive.
The quack doctor of Orient Town who assisted Litchi in her clinic. Han was actually a former NOL soldier who volunteers on the Ars Magus project 'Four Gods' and synchronized with the Ars Magus Seiryuu, but his wife didn't survive the process to earn Ars Magus Suzaku and died. Soon, project supervisor Relius declared the project failure and had everyone involved in the project and their families killed. Han, however, faked his suicide and retreated to Orient Town with his sister and became a doctor to honor his wife.He's not trusted much by the people, but Litchi still treated him well. When she left to join NOL, tragedy struck Han as his sister died of seithr poisoning and Orient Town fell to chaos. After hearing that Litchi was seen amongst the NOL ranks, Han followed her to Ikaruga, attempting to drag her back to town and confront Relius about that one project.He bonded with Arakune, realizing their similar fates of being shunned. But soon, his world started to crumble further when the clone of Litchi suddenly destroyed his beliefs by 'betraying' his trust.
Always Someone Better: Han feels like everything he does, Litchi does better. This was why he's angered at her leaving abruptly, because she's the only one who can make the people of Orient Town truly happy.
Body Horror: Usage of Seiryuu, especially when possessed, causes Han immense pain that once his possession is done, he'll have scaled arm of a dragon, and recently, he's got scaled arms and legs.
Taken to the extreme in the recent acts... the descent to madness turned him into a literal giant black dragon.
Chivalrous Pervert: Possibly Deconstructed. Even when he still look Gonkish, he still hits on ladies. Then Body Horror kicks in, and he felt completely unable to hit on girls anymore, as he was shunned even further.
The actual son of the deceased Lord Tenjou. After his father's death, Satoshi was held prisoner within NOL, until he grew up and escaped by himself, living in the outskirts of Ikaruga. When he was finally reunited with Bang Shishigami, he used the false name 'Nazaru' to hide his identity.
Not to be confused with a Nox Nyctores, he was a deserter to NOL and has joined Sector Seven after faking his death. A Dual Wielding cookie-cutter Bishōnen hero with Anime Hair. He suffered amnesia and it seems that he hides a rather startling past, in which bits of it are released when he was re-captured by NOL along with Noel and Makoto.Nox has not stated exactly what it was but he swears to make Hazama, Relius, Tazuka and Nine all pay for what they did. Especially Nine. As it turned out, Nox was a person living from the past during the War of Magic. His parents became a victim of the Black Beast and later on, when Nine created the Nox Nyctores, she used Nox's body to store the souls of humans used to create them. When Nox realized it thanks to Hazama and Relius, he was completely pissed off.Although, after fighting Nine (assisted with Four Gods Ars Magus Suzaku, which drove him Brainwashed and Crazy temporarily until Nine, Litchi, Nathan and Lambda knocked that out), he was told of his past, his true name is 'Xion', son of a magician of Nine's Magic Guild who was adopted by Nine when his true parents were killed by Black Beast and thanks to Tazuka, he was afflicted with a fatal sickness slowly killing him and the only way to remove it was to make him that soul-storage to create Nox Nyctores, and then he was put in a frozen state to awake in the present and start anew. After hearing that, he made peace with Nine and once again went to what he usually did: Protecting his friends.It is also revealed that Nox was the third member of the Architects of Sin, meaning he played a part in creating Ignis and Nirvana.
It's Personal: Exact reasons currently unknown, but he really hates Nine, even more so than he hates those who threatens his friends or Relius and Hazama.
Revenge Before Reason: He... just doesn't care about his image and friendship just so long as he could get his revenge on Nine. Again, He got better.

"Go ahead and scream for your boyfriend if you want, won't do much good, but as I said, I do so love screaming...."
A vampire who existed since the age of Six Heroes, and is considered the second most brutal enemy second to only the Black Beast. He killed Rachel's father Clavis Alucard in front of her, and would've killed her if he wasn't interrupted by Bloodedge. The Six Heroes (Terumi included) defeated and sealed him in the Boundary. But then, after the events of Continuum Shift, Saya released Tazuka from his imprisonment and he served her, knowing that he'll butt heads with the Alucard family, and seems like he's gotten more friendlier with Terumi.
I Have You Now, My Pretty: Tazuka expresses obsessive behaviour towards Rachel, licks Tsubaki's wound, attacks Litchi while she is completely naked and attempts to bite Lambda while she is restrained on a table, Chivalry is not one of his strong points.
The eldest beings to walk the Earth. They were discarded by the humans after they feel they were no longer of any use, and thus harbored a great hatred to humans. They have the power to control a lot of her creations, which were mostly animals in the world. They uses the power to try to eradicate all those dastardly humans after seeing them pollute the world more and more. The Titans include Chimera, Banshee, Anubis and Colossus.
Badass Decay: While at first presented as overpowered, they now become MUCH weaker. Perhaps it was because they're nearing Villain Sue that toning down was necessary.
A former NOL major who defected after an experiment to graft grimoires to soldiers drastically shortened his lifespan. Declaring himself as a "Knight of the White Dawn", Ashton sets out to kill Relius and Terumi for both revenge and so that the NOL can no longer be corrupted by them.
Aerith and Bob: Take a look at his name and see if it isn't so foreign sounding compared to the rest.
Theme Naming: All of Ashton's attacks are named after artifacts or actual worlds in Norse mythology.
Your Days Are Numbered: Originally the reason why he left the NOL. After having Yggdrasil fused with his body, he could probably view an 'early retirement' coming to see him at the age of thirty.
You Will Be Assimilated: While not directly stated, whenever Ashton is in dire straights or runs out of seither, Yggdrasil tries to cover his body with black veins, almost as if it's trying to take over Ashton's body.
Played by: Ashton Rockwell
An old man Mad Scientist. Worships Relius and is known to help him devise the Four Gods project and Yggdrasil, until his untimely death due to jealousy thanks to Han. However, his spirit lingered within the Yggdrasil, and then took over Ashton's body... and then took over Lord Tenjou's body.It's also revealed that in the past, he collaborated with Relius and Litchi's mother in order to create the disease which is later known as Seithr Outbreak and affected Shanghai, and later Orient Town, making Litchi's mother the first carrier of the disease. As if that wasn't enough, he experimented on Litchi's father and killed him in process.After stealing Lord Tenjou's body, he ended up stealing Bang's giant nail.
You Killed My Father: It's revealed that he co-worked with Relius in gleefully killing Litchi's father.
Played by: Sword Goddess
The free-spirited, adventure loving heir to the noble Lionheart werewolf family. Having left his apathetic family behind in search of adventure and to aid others, Nathan's actions have led him to frequent spats with the NOL. He currently works with Sector Seven.
A forgotten friend of Jin who grew into a sadistic soldier of NOL. He is very jealous of Jin and is more than willing to kill him off. He wields the Chain Hammer called 'Sylvais'. He harbors a really big crush on Tsubaki and wanted to save her from Jin.
Arch-Enemy: Apparently he thinks Jin is the source of every troubles.
Ax-Crazy: Well, his sanity is slipping little by little.
Ashton's life savior and the namesake of his weapon. She is a stray Kaka, mature for her age and acted like Ashton's surrogate mother figure. She suffered Seithr poisoning and was dying when Ashton last saw her in the past. As of current, she became corrupted with the Boundary, and wandered around the NOL base...And then stumbled on Otoya, who took her in and made her the host of Four Gods Ars Magus Genbu. But as of now, she's gotten a little better.
All the Other Reindeer: During her childhood, Harukaka was much smaller than the other kittens, and was teased for this. This is what lead her to becoming...
Ax-Crazy: To the point where she charges straight towards a copy of the Black Beast without a second thought.
The Big Guy: This trope is only strengthened once she loses herself to the corruption of the Boundary.
Came Back Wrong: Not only are parts of her body decaying, she has also lost her mind and has gained the ability of stretching and morphing her body into impossible positions and shapes.
A war-heroine soldier earning the title 'Flak' for... her tendency to blow things up. Sensual, fun-loving and motherly, she really acts like an awesome Cool Big Sis to... pretty much anyone she meets. She currently worked as a constructor within the NOL base, but can whoop ass when needs to be.
The current heir of the Kisaragi family after Jin left. Surprisingly more amiable, but equally ruthless and more loyal to NOL. Kazuya is one of the few brothers that do not fall into jealousy squabbles that befell on his siblings on Jin entrance, but nevertheless, he was very furious at Jin's betrayal and swore to make him pay. He uses the water-manipulating Swiss Army Weapon Armagus Ryuujin.After fighting Jin, Kazuya was shown with the corruption within NOL and decided to clean it up by aiming to destroy Hazama and Relius Clover.
When Litchi was captured by Relius, he created a clone of her, which were quite identical of her except one thing: There's only Arakune/Lotte Carmine in her mind, and she thinks the rest never mattered at all if it means saving him, furthered after thinking that the world deserves it after the shits it gave to Arakune and her. As such, when Relius orders her to destroy the actual Litchi's reputation by first burning down Orient Town and then ruining Litchi's relationship with her friends if she wants Arakune saved, she complied without doubts.She believed that she was the real thing and the actual Litchi was the clone. However, the heroes seems to be able to differentiate the real thing...Tropes associated to the clone of Litchi:
Fridge Horror: You may think this is just an RP exclusive character, until you realize... Litchi in canon can turn out like this if Hazama had his way on influencing her, or the Boundary had its way to block her common sense further.
Love Makes You Evil: If there was a Playing With page, she'd definitely fits the 'Exaggerated' part.
Paper-Thin Disguise: Subverted. She's not disguising, but being herself. But nobody buys it when it comes to stating that she's the real Litchi.
Shadow Archetype: She is what Litchi will turn out if she is too focused on Arakune.
Given the nature of roleplays, it's not uncommon for roleplayers to have to leave due to personal conflicts or schedules. Here is a list of characters that, while they may be coming back under their original authors or somebody else. are nonetheless out of the picture right now.
Played by: Noka
A mysteriousgirl with a special power to communicate with Nox Nyctores. Has a new set of power named 'Izanami Unit', but how it works is currently mysterious. She seems to lost a lot of her memories and is looking for her purpose in her world.
A Mad Scientist from Sector Seven that would make even Kokonoe or Lotte Carmine look tame. He sought to obtain the Ultimate Knowledge, but probably did not bother with how Lotte turned himself into Arakune. Instead, he focuses on the notes left by Relius Clover about Murakumo Units, which got him ecstatic.
"Power flow regulated. Removing energy reactor limiters Alpha through Zeta. Now engaging L.O.L. 2.0!!"
Younger sibling of the House Longinus successors. The House Longinus used to be a proper family who cleans up after NOL's wet work that they can't be bothered to finish, such as hunting down bounty, as well as preserving the balance between right and wrong, order and chaos. Cain himself chose the path of 'Chaos' and became a vigilante, giving strife to his brother who joined NOL instead. This strife brought ruin to House Longinus after his father died. After Cain realized how corrupt NOL was and how Abel could care less about the House's well being, he decided to take down NOL...His weapon is a Nox Nyctores imitation named "Lance of Longinus". He tends to act like a smart-ass too.
A product of the love between a Praetorian Guard of NOL and Ikarugan Kunoichi. His father was killed, and listed as 'killed in action', thus Isamu trained under his mother, until the events of Continuum Shift, where he set off to the world as a vigilante to provide his family money, protect his family and find out the truth about his father's death.Isamu possessed an eye called 'Eye of Yatagarasu', which enabled him to read his enemy's movement. Sounds familiar?
"No, see, you've got that wrong... You became my business the second you raised your sword against the NOL. To get lost now would be a terrible slight upon my duties as a member of the Librarium and the memory of my fellow officers who may not have been as fortunate as I."
A young officer of NOL's Intelligence Department, killed by Ragna The Bloodedge during his first raid on a NOL Headquarters. He made a pact with what is presumed to be one of his ancestors for a second chance at life and the power of magic. Learned of Ragna's presence in Ikaruga from an anonymous tip.
Always Wanted To Say That: Roger's justification, along with the Rule of Cool, for using the NOL's "Knights of the Blue Flame" creed when it wasn't entirely applicable. He nonetheless retracts the statement in favour of the word "Kaplow".
And I Must Scream: Roger's soul is forcefully ejected out of his body and into a Soul Jar when he goes into his Super Mode / Turns Red. He also happens to be very slowly transforming into the spitting image of his (female) ancestral spirit, and he doesn't even know it yet.
Angst? What Angst?: Doesn't really seem too broken up over having cheated death. (Plus all the things he has to deal with above...)
Awesomeness by Analysis: While Jenna was fooled by Nathan's attempt to avoid a fight with the couple, Roger took a couple looks at the werewolf and proceeded to pick apart his lie one piece at a time. He IS an Intelligence Officer, after all.
Bent GenderBy Genre Savvy: Despite appearantly having "soft cheeks", the biggest change Roger's magic has had on him is restoring him to a visually "alive" state. He understandably suspects that he'll only stay this way if he continues using his magic, but that's just going to make him a girl faster.
Deadly Dodging: It's been made quite clear that Roger doesn't block. Probably because he doesn't have the strength to do it, being a Squishy Wizard and all. He instead uses his abilities to alter his enemie's trjectory just a bit and then dodges them. Barely. It's risky, but it often leaves him in a good position to counter.
Deadpan Snarker: Despite his melodramatic persona in combat, outside of battle he often plays a dry straight man to Jenna's antics. The "Arcade Win Quote" project furthers this trait.
Large Ham: More of an in-universe example than a meta one, since unlike Bang and Taokaka, the narration doesn't get hammy when he does. One of his hobbies is performing melodrama, and it comes through during his conflicts.
Third Law of Gender Bending: Played with a great deal in Roger and Jenna's win quotes for eachother. Roger is quite happy subverting if not outright averting it. Jenna, on the other hand, tries to enforce it in her win quote to the point of parodic exaggeration. However, her reasons for doing so are shown to have little to do with the Unfortunate Implications that this trope is normally rife with, and instead are shown to have more to do with... "personal tastes".
Thou Shalt Not Kill: Is very reluctant to take lives, regardless of who he's facing or told about. He even feels compelled to have Relius arrested and tried for his crimes rather than outright murdered, and his condition for aiding the Ikarugan Liberation Force is for them to make sure they minimize casualties.

"Don't be ridiculous, everybody knows there's no such thing as zombies, and even if there were, why is it running around Ikaruga willy nilly? Was my family the only one that made sure there was a shotgun in every room and brought a machete or handgun everywhere in case of a zombie apocalypse? If there was REALLY a zombie in Ikaruga, I think it'd be dead by- HOLY COW A ZOMBIE!"
Jenna's father was mostly responsible for Jenna's zombie education. Her mother? She was more focused on dragons and fey.
Thanks to the arcade win quote project we now know that Jenna is also prepared to combat vampires, wetting her blades with holy water in a spray bottle every morning, carrying a stake around, and keeping wolfsbane in her pocket, a cross in her wallet, and a clove of garlic inVictoria's Secret Compartment. Her zombie education is also built upon. She appearantly has a shotgun somewhere in case of a Zombie Apocalypse and her first reaction to Harukaka is to Kill It with Fire.
Ethical Slut: Implied in her win quotes, since many involve flirting with characters that are not Roger. Special mention also goes to her ones for Saya - where she claims that if she were Imperator, she'd have a harem - and Ashton, where Power Perversion Potential and tentacles get mentioned pointed out with a giant searchlight.
More Dakka: In case the fact that she's a walking armoury hasn't tipped you off, Jenna is the high priestess of applying this principle to melee weapons.
She loves More Dakka so much that it's listed as FOUR DIFFERENT THINGS that she likes. To compare, her dead boyfriend? The one that spurred her entire choice to take up vigilantism as a career? Not even listed once.
Motor Mouth: The Arcade Win Quotes project. Before Jenna was put up, the longest quotes were barely more than two lines long on a standard computer screen. (Like two lines and a word.) The shortest Jenna quotes take up FOUR LINES and only get longer from there.
A Colonel of the NOL who was sent with Kazuya on his mission. Like Jin, Minato was a hero of the Ikaruga War, although his assumed death at the hands of an Ikarugan ambush and the fact that he only returned after Jin's exceptional performance left him largely forgotten. His twin sister's death at the hands of the same Ikarugan ambush that almost took his life has left him bitter.It later turns out that this is in fact his twin sister Hamuko, posing as Minato.
Came Back Wrong: Subverted in that it's implied he did not actually die. Nonetheless, ever since almost dying, he's been different. Verydifferent.
Combat Pragmatist: Has no qualms about spitting in Lambda's face if he thinks it'll help him. Or trying to attack Nathan and Lambda while their backs are turned. And let's not get into how he tried to dealwithNathan...
Death of a Thousand Cuts: Not necessarily a key aspect of his fighting style, but Dokuganryu becomes stronger with each successive attack. As such, quick, weak jabs soon become quicker, strong blows.
Oda Nobunaga: Said near death experience was a shot through the neck, something he shouldn't have lived through. The Japanese conquerer being alluded to had reportedly survived the same style of "lethal" wound at the battle of Okehazama. The fact that he changed for worse after surviving said wounds seems to take on the Historical Villain Upgrade of Nobunaga, whereas people cite that Nobunaga becomes evil incarnate or make a Deal with the Devil after Okehazama
Date Masamune: The big one. He has one eye, established himself as a frighteningly effective millitary commander but got Overshadowed by Awesome, wears a golden helmet with a crescent moon that has become an image attributed solely to him and black armour to accompany it, and is known as the Dragon. Are we talking about Minato or Masamune? Well, technically we could be talking about both at the same time. To further matters, Minato's artifact, Dokuganryu, means "One-Eyed Dragon" when translated. Guess what Masamune's FULL alias was?
Name's the Same: His sister's name is 'Hamuko', thus making them named after the fan names of the protagonists of Persona 3
Nice JobBreaking Lambda, Villain: Minato's electrification of Lambda may have done its job in shutting down Nathan's Superpowered Evil Side, but it also unleashed SNK Boss Lambda upon his head. Nathan had to make her shut down since leaving her in such a state would cause unmitigated disaster... to both others and herself.
Tron Lines: Dokuganryu's armour is described as having this.
Villainous Crossdresser: Subverted possibly in that he doesn't do it anymore and he may not have been villainous at the time, but he and Hamuko used to swap places a lot in an effort to try and fool their friends and families for laughs. They adamantly quit when they did it a few times at the Academy and Minato learned that he made for a very hot and convincing Hamuko.
As it turns out, however, it seems that there are two Minatos spotted within the world. The second one is not affiliated with NOL, but possesses the powers of Hell Fire, being called the 'Demon King'. He's seen amidst the flames of Orient Town and confronted the clone of Litchi, full of disgust on the woman to create such massacre, even if it's for saving someone.This is in fact the real Minato.Tropes associated with this Minato:
Rummage Sale Reject: It's established that this Minato dresses like a bum. Justified in that he is, in fact, a bum. His outfit is Hamuko's old uniform, heavily tailored and patched together with scraps of fabric so that it doesn't look too femmenine.
Shut Up, Hannibal!: No matter how much the clone of Litchi stated about trying to save Lotte... Minato DOES NOT GIVE SHIT. But then, Minato's used to putting a stopper on Breaking Speeches considering he does it every night.
Now it's being RetConned so that the battle did, indeed, happen.
Wholesome Crossdresser: His outfit is a massive amount of patchworking with Hamuko's old uniform as a base. Despite Minato's best efforts, it's still recognisable as a female outfit. Combine this with the other Minato's Villainous Crossdresser entry.
Elder sibling of the House Longinus successors. Abel chose the path of 'Order' and joined NOL, raising to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He has a twisted sense of justice, where he wanted everything 'wrong' to disappear, and believes that the Imperator would lead him to such justice. As said, he's not on a good term with his brother. He can be a bit insane and sadistic to everyone else, but keeps a cold, ruthless persona to Cain. However, he's unceremoniously killed when Relius had Ignis transformed.He fights with an Iai-style similar to Jin, except that he purely focuses on quick, decisive slashes.
A mysterious 15 years old girl who works for a mysterious being she called 'Daddy'. Her mission was to look for Noel Vermillion. Had a rather bipolar personality of either being stern or being a sugar-high girl. After some events, she seemed to have grown some soft spots on Litchi, calling her 'Mommy'.Unfortunately, her sugar high personality and her tendency to rush into battle spelled her end as she became a victim of Adachi's Reinjour and slain.
The father of Tsubaki Yayoi. He is staunchly loyal to the Imperator, and would not like ANYONE who opposes her... including his daughter. He has the Ars Magus Reinjour the Worldbreaker, a halberd which can cleave anything... and even separate souls...
