Characters: Blood-C

Characters from Blood-C!

Saya Kisaragi

Voiced by: Nana Mizuki (Japanese), Alexis Tipton (English)

An upbeat, cheerful, and kind girl who trains under her father as a miko and is a very skilled sword fighter. Those outside of her family are oblivious to her duty as a hunter of Furukimono, or monsters that inhabit the town.
  • Action Dress Rip: Saya rips off part of her school skirt and turns it into an Eyepatch of Power in episode 12.
  • Action Girl: Any scene of her fighting the Elder Bairns can tell you this.
  • Adorkable: Oh, is she ever!
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Her true personality fits this to a T.
  • Anti Heroine: Becomes one by episode 12.
  • Badass: She's capable of taking down Elder Bairns, which can terrorize and devour humans like cattle.
  • Badass Adorable: Despite going on missions to kill monsters she's an otherwise sweet and charming young high school girl. Though this fades once she gets her memories back.
  • Barbie Doll Anatomy: Close-up during the OP.
  • Boobs of Steel: Sports quite the rack and is the only half-human female who's capable of fighting.
  • Break the Cutie: Let's just say the second half is not very kind to her.
  • Broken Bird: In Blood-C: The Last Dark.
  • Chaste Heroine: Other than some implied interest in one of her classmates, she has no romantic relationships.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: In the first episode, her classmates say she is usually late for school because she goes to help lost children and grandmas and pick up trash.
  • Cool Sword: Her mother's sword.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: For much of the series, she comes across as being completely inept at saving people from the monsters. Then you find out it's because she subconsciously doesn't care but could, in a heartbeat, if she truly felt like it.
  • Missing Mom: Her mother died when she was a child. Or so she thinks.
  • Nice Girl: Saya is a bright, cheerful, kind, and all friendly person to everyone and everything around her. However, It is later revealed that she is far from this.
  • Nominal Heroine: In Blood-C: The Last Dark (and quite possibly the show itself); Saya only sides with SIRRUT to further her quest for vengeance against Fumito.
  • Not So Stoic: Whenever Fumito is involved Saya completely looses her cool and fly's into an uncontrollable, homicidal rage.
  • Oblivious to Love: As the twins point out, she really can't tell when a guy is interested in her.
  • The Stoic: When she learns of the Truman Show Plot.
  • Survival Mantra: In the first episode
    Saya: Ikutama, Tarutama, Tamatamarutama. Amenotokotachi no Mikoto, Kuninotokotachi no Mikoto. note 
    • This is an actual Shinto prayer.

Tadayoshi Kisaragi

Voiced by: Keiji Fujiwara (Japanese), Bill Jenkins (English)

Saya's father and the priest at the shrine where he and Saya reside.
  • Birds of a Feather: Non romantic example. His half human nature made him sympathize and get along with Saya.

Fumito Nanahara

Voiced by: Kenji Nojima (Japanese), Robert McCollum (English)

Saya's neighbor and the owner of Guimauve, a coffee shop near Saya's home.
  • Big Bad: He set up the entire town as part of a "game" with Saya.
  • Bastard in Sheep's Clothing That nice cafe owner is a royal douchebag.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: All over Episode 12. He knew that his subordinates would try to betray him and made them fake talismans.
  • Driven to Suicide: Stabs himself with Saya's sword since he found that he is incapable of being the same as Saya and that his attempts of making new Elder Bairns failed.
  • Human Resources: His goal is to create Elder Bairns from humans so that Saya would never run out of her food supply.

Nono and Nene Motoe

Voiced by: Misato Fukuen (Japanese), Lindsay Seidel (English)

Twin sisters who are also Saya's schoolmates.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Implied pimps, and complete jerks.
  • Creepy Twins: After dropping the facade.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Nono gets caught by an Elder Bairn, held upside down via her legs and split apart like a wishbone
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: The braid in their hair is the only way to tell them apart.
  • Metronomic Man Mashing: Nene gets smashed into a pulp on the pavement. Almost a mercy kill in comparison to her sisters fate...
  • Noodle Incident: We learn that they did something REAL bad in the past and they were jailed for it. We get a clue in episode 12 when they say that the fake uniforms are cute and that they should get a bunch for "the girls" to wear. This suggests they were pimping out a bunch of girls and got caught for it.

Yuka Amino

A classmate of Saya's who often has lunch with her.

Itsuki Tomofusa

Voiced by: Atsushi Abe (Japanese), Chris Burnett (English)

The class president. He has a crush on Saya.
  • Becoming the Mask: He was told to pretend that he loved Saya... and fell in love for real.

Shinichiro Tokizane

Voiced by: Tatsuhisa Suzuki (Japanese), Scott Freeman (English)

A quiet classmate who harbors a secret interest in Saya.
  • Decoy Protagonist: His aloof-nature, notable absences from school, and slowly building relationship with Saya (to the point where he is the first classmate to learn of her double life) make Tokizane out to be more important than he actually is. Even after the reveal of the entire cast being actors, we actually learn the least about him when compared to his cohorts.
  • Off with His Head!: Gets his dome reaved off.
  • Only in It for the Money: And his greedy nature bites him in the end.

Kanako Tsutsutori

Voiced by: Miho Miyagawa (Japanese), Lydia Mackay (English)

Saya's homeroom teacher.

The Dog

Voiced by: Jun Fukuyama (Japanese), Todd Haberkorn (English)

An unusual puppy with strange marks on his body who is usually seen near Saya, who finds that it can actually speak.
  • Shout-Out: The dog states he owns a shop where wishes are granted, hinting at the possibility of being Kimihiro Watanuki from CLAMP series Xxx Holic (who Jun and Todd also voiced).
    • This eventually becomes true in the movie.
  • Talking Animal: He's a small dog who regularly converses with Saya. Subverted when it's revealed that he's simply a medium used by Watanuki to communicate.
