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.
  • Miko: Obviously, being the town's local shrine maiden.
  • 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.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: Has the qualities and is noted to be quite attractive. In fact, once she's revealed to be part Elder Bairn, her teacher comments on her inhuman beauty.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Usually means she's going to kick some ass or drink blood.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: She "loves" Fumito because he's a Nice Guy.
  • 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.

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.
  • 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.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Was responsible for everything involving the experiment on Saya.
  • Nice Guy: Or so he seems.
  • No Body Left Behind: His body turns to ash after he stabs himself with Saya's sword.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Kills both his and his cousin's family.
  • Walking Spoiler: The biggest one in a cast full of them.
  • Yandere: For Saya.

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 - Nene's is on the right side of her face and Nono's is on the left.
  • Metronomic Man Mashing: Nene gets smashed into a pulp on the pavement. Almost a mercy kill in comparison to her sister's fate...
  • Karmic Death: Could be said for Nono, as she knocks Nene to the ground to try to save her own hide. While they both die, her death is more drawn out and painful.
  • 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.
  • Single-Minded Twins: They frequently do this but it's mostly an act.
  • Theme Twin Naming: Their names are basically the same, you just have to interchange the Os with Es or vice versa.
  • With Friends Like These...: Turns out that in Episode 12, Nono's love for Nene was not genuine as she easily elbows her own twin in the face to the ground and uses her as bait in an attempt to escape from Cerberus to save her own skin. It doesn't work.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Trying to cross the boss gets them this treatment.

Yuka Amino

Voiced by: Masumi Asano (Japanese), Martha Harms (English)

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.

Shinichiro Tokizane

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

A quiet classmate who harbors a secret interest in Saya.

Kanako Tsutsutori

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

Saya's homeroom teacher.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Is pretty quick to change personalities when she ends the experiment and treats Saya as nothing but a prize and research subject.
  • For Science!: She only agreed to Fumito's "game" for the opportunity to experiment on people and Elder Bairnes.
  • Hot Teacher: Boy, howdy...
  • The Starscream: Willingly betrayed Fumito and gave Saya her memories back for her own ambition of exposing Saya to the world and making sure all the research and hard work she did wouldn't go to waste.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: She managed to survive the Elder Bairn that Fumito had try to kill her, only to end up dying at the hands of Tadayoshi's Elder Bairn side.

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 ×××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.

The Elder Bairns (The Furukimono)


  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Fumito had them imbued with Saya's blood so he could control when they would attack.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Are all incredibly inhuman and between needing to eat humans to survive and having existed for a very, very long time. They definitely count.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: They must eat humans to survive. For this reason a covenant was made between them and man to ensure humanity wouldn't be wiped out.
