!!Red Shield

[[folder:Saya Otonashi]]
->Voiced by: Creator/EriKitamura (JP), Creator/KariWahlgren (EN), Joël Mulachs (SP), Gabriela Ugarte (Latin-American SP)

Saya Otonashi is the main protagonist of the series Blood+ and the first born of the daughters of the Chiropteran Mummy. She is a pure blooded Chiropteran queen ([[spoiler:and Diva's older twin sister]]) as well as Hagi's lover.
* ActionDressRip: In the middle of a fight at the Metropolitan Opera House, Saya realizes that the evening gown she wore in is too restrictive and so takes the liberty of tearing most of the lower portion off for more ease of movement, leaving her legs bare.
* ActionGirl: Was one before the series begins, though she doesn't initially know it. She eventually gets back into the habit of kicking monster tail.
* AmnesiacDissonance: Starts out the series amnesiac, and slowly regains her memories over the course of the first two seasons.
* AngstySurvivingTwin: Even after everything Diva has done and the years Saya spent preparing to kill her, [[spoiler:Saya was very badly-shaken when she realized that she wasn't going to die alongside her sister as she had planned. When only Diva started to crystallize and called out to Saya in shock, a completely horrified Saya immediately ran up to her and tried to keep her petrifying sister from crumbling away. She broke down into anguished sobs and screamed in despair when Diva died anyway. At least part of Saya's grief was finally understanding that Diva had only ever wanted to get the chance to enjoy life and have a family, and realizing the full tragic scope of Diva's life]].
* AnimalsHateHer: Every animal she encounters over the series slinks away at the sight of her.
* AntiHero: Witness the magic of CharacterDevelopment as Saya evolves from being a [[ClassicalAntiHero Classical Anti-Heroine]] to being a KnightInSourArmor to being a [[PragmaticHero Pragmatic Heroine]].
* TheAtoner: The entire series chronicles her attempts to kill Diva and make up for the mistake she made by [[spoiler:releasing her in the first place]].
* BadassAdorable: An incredibly formidable chiropteran-slayer, a chiropteran queen herself, and the only hope Red Shield (and the world) has, all in the form of one cute teenager. [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Hmm, that actually sounds familiar.]]
* BigEater: An instance of FridgeBrilliance: [[spoiler:Saya only receives just enough blood to keep from getting thirsty, but her body still needs more energy. Human food isn't quite enough to match up to blood, which is why she burns through calories so quickly and has to eat so much.]]
* BlindingBangs: After the TimeSkip. It's used to show her new DarkerAndEdgier personality.
* BloodIsTheNewBlack: You can count the number of times she ''hasn't'' been drenched head to toe in her enemies' blood or her own on one hand.
* BoomerangBigot: Bears considerable disdain for most other chiropterans despite being one of them. See TookALevelInJerkass below. It's probably [[JustifiedTrope justified]] considering most other chiropterans's disregard for human life and bloodthirstiness. Saya was raised to identify as a human. Other chiropterans kill humans without a second thought. Given that, it's only natural that Saya would cling to her alignment with humans and look at other chiropterans with disdain and distrust.
* BoyishShortHair: From at least the Russian Revolution onward. According to the ''Adagio'' manga, after having a nightmare of Diva's rampage at the Zoo and mistaking her reflection for Diva, she freaked out, messily chopped off her hair, and then had Haji fix it, resulting in its current style.
* BreakTheCutie: It starts when she [[spoiler: frees Diva from the tower]], and all goes downhill from there.
* BringMyRedJacket: Starts wearing a maroon coat after the TimeSkip.
* BrokenBird: Once she gets her memories back, she gets broken and bitter. Probably has something to do with three lifetimes's worth of bloodshed, fighting, monsters, evil global conspiracies led by [[spoiler:her twisted twin sister who murdered her father-figure along with most of the people she knew and destroyed her home]], having condemned Haji to a terrible, endless life as [[spoiler:her chevalier]], and struggling to cope with the knowledge that [[spoiler:she herself is just another monster that caused all of this to happen and needs to die as soon as she kills her sister]].
* ButNotTooForeign: Sort of. She's technically French because of her place of "birth," but can easily pass for Japanese.
* CainAndAbel: The Abel to [[spoiler:Diva's]] Cain. [[spoiler: Although in the end, Saya is the one to kill Diva.]]
* CharacterDevelopment: [[spoiler:A year after Riku's death,]] Saya exhibits a much darker and embittered disposition, having fully regained her memories but in the process of lost hope, as Moses and Lulu both note. She is unwilling to associate or work with others, particularly Kai and the rest of the Red Shield, [[spoiler:not wanting to have to experience losing more loved ones.]] During the last half of the series, she slowly comes to accept their help.
* CuteBruiser: A cute teenage girl who can fight giant monsters with ease.
* DarkIsNotEvil: She tends to wear dark colors, like maroon and black, but is TheHero of the series.
* DeathSeeker: Ultimately [[SubvertedTrope subverted]]. Saya only allows herself to live in order to kill Diva, and plans to either die with Diva or have Haji find a way to kill her afterward. Despite this, she secretly does want to live. [[spoiler:In the final episode, Haji and Kai persuade her that she doesn't need to kill herself out of guilt or to end the chiropteran threat.]]
* DeliberateInjuryGambit: Her final defeat of [[spoiler: Karl]]. When [[spoiler: Karl]] has her at his mercy and is about to kill her, Saya, realizing she has too much to live for, [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice runs herself through with her own sword]] and skewers [[spoiler: Karl]] as well, killing him.
* DespairEventHorizon: She hits it when Diva [[spoiler:rapes and kills Riku]]; several characters even [[LampshadeHanging remark]] that she has lost hope.
* DramaPreservingHandicap: As the series finale approaches, Cinq Fleches begins putting the EvilPlan into action, which includes transforming the human population into chiropterans and killing Saya to put an end to the threat she poses. Unfortunately, all this is happening at the same time that Saya's body begins preparing for its next thirty-year hibernation--meaning that she suffers from PowerDegeneration that hinders her newly-regained fighting capabilities and might not even be able to confront Cinq Fleches in time before she goes to sleep. [[RuleOfDrama Awful, awful, awfully convenient timing.]]
* DudeMagnet: Just ask [[BodyguardCrush Hagi]], [[NotBloodSiblings Kai]], and [[StalkerWithACrush Solomon]].
* EarnYourHappyEnding: [[spoiler:She goes through over a century of physical and psychological pain, and will have to lose thirty years with her loved ones due to her hibernation first, but with Diva and Amshel dead, Saya finally gets to hang up her sword and live her life in peace with her family.]]
* EasilyForgiven: For her actions during the UsefulNotes/VietnamWar. Granted, she [[UnstoppableRage wasn't in her right mind at the time]], but still, she killed dozens of innocent people, including women and children, chopped off Haji's arm, and personally slew David's father, and all she gets is a slap on the wrist. Almost makes the Red Shield seem like a bunch of {{hypocrite}}s for giving her so much slack while they are convinced that Diva is an irredeemable monster. Again, [[JustifiedTrope justified]] by the circumstances: Saya is normally [[UndyingLoyalty undyingly loyal]] to humanity, but was in a [[UnstoppableRage mindless frenzied state]] at the time (she didn't even recognize ''Haji'') because she had been taken out of hibernation too soon and woke up in the middle of a war-zone crawling with chiropterans, bombs, and gun-fire. When Saya was herself again later on, she was [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone horrified and remorseful]] over what she did in Vietnam, even ''before'' she [[AmnesiacDissonance consciously remembered it]]. The only reason the Red Shield continued to ally with Saya was because it was necessary, seeing as how her blood was the only weapon capable of killing the much more pressing threat--chiropterans in general and Diva and her chevaliers in particular. Still, the Red Shield was pretty wary around Saya at this time because they knew what had happened in Vietnam, and David had a hard time forgiving her even though he knew and accepted that Saya was necessary to their mission and that she hadn't been in control of herself in Vietnam.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Saya seems to have girls crawling into bed with her with alarming frequency: Kaori, Minh, Sonya ([[spoiler:though the last [[FaceStealer wasn't actually a girl]]]])...
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: The TimeSkip has her hair with bangs, signifying her loss of innocence.
* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire: Or [[spoiler:Chiropteran Queen]], to be more exact. She's a friendly girl who doesn't want to eat you.
%%* TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry: With Diva, Saya is the "smart" sister.
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: Which enables her to pull off a DeliberateInjuryGambit and survive.
* {{Hallucinations}}: Experiences several early on in the series, mostly about what she did in Vietnam.
%%* HappilyAdopted
* HeartbrokenBadass: Life has definitely ''not'' been kind to her since she [[spoiler: freed Diva]]. Because of this, Saya is determined to kill all chiropterans.
* HeroicBSOD: A big one after [[spoiler:Riku's death]].
%%* HeroicNeutral: Initially.
* HunterOfHisOwnKind: Female version. A chiropteran who hunts other chiropterans, a fact she prefers not to dwell on.
* IWorkAlone: Develops this attitude after the TimeSkip because she doesn't want to suffer the loss of any more of her loved ones and friends. She eventually snaps out of it.
* ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty: Stopped aging when she turned sixteen.
* ItsAllMyFault: Her word-for-word reaction when she remembers that [[spoiler: she was the one who originally freed Diva.]]
* JerkassRealization: In the {{flashback}}s in episode 22, Saya gets exasperated with Haji for his refusal to cooperate with her and tells him to go back to where he came from, only to be taken aback when Haji breaks down and informs her that he's not at the Zoo by choice and that Joel and Amshel bought him. It's this realization that marks Saya's change from SpoiledBrat to a more self-aware person.
* KissOfLife: [[RuleOfThree Thrice]] with Hagi: the first time (chronologically), it was so that she could give him her blood to recuperate, accidentally [[spoiler:turning him into a chevalier when he was on the brink of death]] but saving his life; the second time (chronologically), it was so that he could give her his blood to trigger her latent memories and powers, enabling her to kill an attacking chiropteran and save the day; the third time [[RunningGag (chronologically)]], they share an emotional kiss after Haji convinces Saya [[spoiler:not to kill herself]].
* LightningBruiser: Very agile and strong, and able to take quite a bit of damage without being slowed thanks in part to her HealingFactor.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: When she is recruited back into the Red Shield while amnesiac, both Haji and David repeatedly refuse to tell Saya anything about her past or mission, insisting that she has to remember on her own. Of course, this results in Saya being forced into horrific bloodshed and countless BreakTheCutie moments without even knowing ''why'', but either way...
%%* MistressAndServantBoy: With Hagi.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: She's tiny, but can easily overpower and chop chiropterans in half. Since she's a Chiropteran [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking Queen]], this makes sense.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Her reaction to killing some of her allies while in her BerserkMode and after being forced to [[spoiler:turn Riku into a chevalier to save his life.]]
* NeutralNoLonger: Having previously been extremely hesitant to jump into the fray against chiropterans, Saya decides to go with Haji and the Red Shield after she [[spoiler:loses George]].
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler: There surely could never be a ''reason'' why that girl with the beautiful voice is locked away in a tower on your foster father's property...]]
* ObliviousToLove: She had no idea that Haji was in love with her throughout the past hundred-plus years of their association. While Hagi is TheStoic and so at least ''somewhat'' believable, she ''also'' never catches onto ''Kai's'' blatant [[NotBloodSiblings non-brotherly]] feelings for her. Factor in her harem of girls she doesn't show anything but friendship towards and for a while there, Solomon and Karl were the only ones she seemed aware of as having romantic feelings for her (and possibly vice-versa, in Solomon's case) at all. When you know enemies you've only just met have feelings for you, but not any of the friends you've spent a year or more in the company of, you know you're ObliviousToLove. Or maybe you don't know, since that's the whole point of the trope.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Saya sees the task of killing Diva as her personal duty, and tries to dissuade others from joining her in her quest. This isn't just a matter of ItsPersonal as it usually is with other examples (though considering the grief Diva has caused her, that certainly figures into it as well), but out of pragmatism and a sense of responsibility--Saya's blood is the only thing that can kill Diva.
%%* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent:
* OutDamnedSpot: During the Vietnamese boarding school arc, Saya is washing her hands when she hallucinates that they are covered in blood, symbolizing her subconscious guilt over all the innocent blood she spilled in Vietnam the last time she was there.
* PowerDegeneration: A non-fatal variation. As Saya nears her next hibernation period, she suffers from bouts of fainting spells and her HealingFactor begins to lose its potency.
* ProHumanTranshuman: Having been RaisedByHumans, Saya is on the side of humanity no matter what.
* ThePromise: She made Hagi promise her [[spoiler:that he would kill her after she kills Diva]]. Fortunately, he instead [[spoiler: manages to talk her out of it and persuade her to live on.]]
%%* RavenHairIvorySkin:
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler:She's almost two hundred years old. Though with all her long naps and amnesia, she doesn't have much built up wisdom.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Inverted. [[spoiler: The red-eyed [[DarkIsNotEvil Saya]] is the hero pitted against blue-eyed [[LightIsNotGood Diva]].]]
* RedIsHeroic: She's the main character of the series, has red eyes, and wears a dark red coat after the TimeSkip.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Blue to Kai, Mao, and (ironically) [[spoiler:Diva's]] Red.
%%* ReluctantWarrior:
%%* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship:
* ScarfOfAsskicking: A pink scarf is part of her evening gown ensemble at the Metropolitan Opera House fight, but she loses it almost immediately in the battle.
* SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack: Played with. Though most promotional materials and video games depict her in her school uniform, she mostly wears casual clothes in the series itself.
* SpoiledBrat: Starts out as very bratty due to her upbringing under the first Joel Goldschmidt, but mellows out through her friendship with Haji.
* SympathyForTheDevil: Despite her long-running mission to kill Diva, Saya still feels sorry for her due to her FreudianExcuse. [[spoiler: When she finally succeeds at killing her, she considers it a hollow victory and breaks down in tears.]]
* TomatoInTheMirror: [[spoiler: Her reaction to realizing she's a chiropteran.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with in a weird way.]] For a while, Saya is is only really useful in a fight if she slips into one of her {{Unstoppable Rage}}s. However, she actually ''was'' a skilled fighter before the series began, and has only deteriorated because she [[IdentityAmnesia lost her memories]], making this more of an in-universe example of BadassDecay. ''However'', when Saya finally remembers who she is, she remembers how to deal with chiroptera... which spells bad news for any weird blood-sucking bat monsters dumb enough to leave a trail.
* TookALevelInJerkass: After regaining her memories in the manga. She even flatly tells [[spoiler: Riku]] she's going to kill him because he's a [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman chiropteran]]. Considering what she was going through, it's understandable, and she seems to be uncertain about it afterwards. ([[WhatTheHellHero Still pretty mean, though, Saya.]])
%%* UnstoppableRage:
* VegetarianVampire: Sort of. Saya largely refrains from drinking ''any'' kind of blood, human or animal, and gets the blood she needs through blood transfusions instead.
* WeakButSkilled: Since Saya refrains from eating people, she is barely stronger than ordinary humans, but is able to hold her own against other chiropterans due to martial arts skills.
%%* WhatHaveIBecome
* WillfullyWeak: She suppresses her natural abilities and refrains from drinking blood as much as possible; as a result, she's barely stronger than a human. If she tapped into her powers and had enough blood, she'd be [[LightningBruiser Diva's]] equal.
* YouAreNotAlone: After the TimeSkip, she isolates herself from the Red Shield, not wanting to lose any more loved ones. Her friends repeatedly work to help her understand that it's not just ''her'' burden to bear alone.

->Voiced by: Creator/KatsuyukiKonishi (JP), Creator/CrispinFreeman (EN), Toni Mora (SP), Manuel Díaz and Gerardo García (Latin-American SP)

Hagi is Saya's first and only living chevalier and also her love interest.
* AbsurdlySharpClaws: His claws can easily cut through flesh and bone; in episode 13, he even effortlessly chops a chiropteran's head off with them.
* BadassLongcoat: A downplayed example, but his old-fashioned tailcoat does cause him to cut a striking figure, especially in combat.
* {{Bishonen}}: In the novelization Mao grumbles about how he's so pretty, it's annoying because it's so distracting.
%%* BodyguardCrush: On Saya.
* CannotSpitItOut: Surely taking 130 years to tell the woman you love how you feel must be some kind of record.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: {{Implied}}. Haji's parents sold him to Joel I and Amshel for a ''loaf of bread''.
%%* DarkIsNotEvil
%%* DeliberateInjuryGambit
* {{Determinator}}: Absolutely nothing stands in his way if Saya's safety is threatened.
* DistressedDude: Spends his time in the prequel manga ''City of the Night Walkers''/''Blood+: Kowloon Nights'' unconscious, in chains, and [[HoYay in the arms of another man]] until he snaps out of his funk and wipes the floor with his captors.
* DyingConfessionOfLove: [[spoiler: Finally confesses his feelings for Saya before he is apparently killed in the MET bombing. Subverted, as the final scene of the anime reveals he survived.]]
%%* EarnYourHappyEnding:
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: He's initially an ambiguous and somewhat threatening figure, an impression certainly helped along by his dark hair and pale complexion. Even once it becomes clear that he's a heroic and utterly trustworthy person, his extreme stoicism and chevalier abilities - as well as the fact that he keeps feeding Saya his blood - makes him a bit otherworldly.
* ExtremeDoormat: "If that is your wish" is his {{Catchphrase}}. Kai calls him out on it. [[spoiler: In the finale, he would have just stood by and let Saya kill herself if Kai hadn't stepped in]].
%%* GoodOldWays
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: As a chevalier he can recover from injuries that would've killed any human, and the series takes full advantage of this fact, meaning that Hagi gets maimed for drama pretty often. At one point he's impaled by what appears to be a railroad tie.
* GoOutWithASmile: Just before being [[spoiler: buried under rubble in the MET.]]
* HappinessInSlavery: He is unshakingly loyal to Saya to the bitter end, and not just because he's biologically hardwired to be as such as a Chevalier.
* IAmNotLeftHanded: [[spoiler: He hides his Chiropteran body parts, such as his claw and wings, because Saya expressed horror at them when she first saw them. He'll bare the claw for fighting, but it's only at the very end of the series that things get serious enough for him to reveal his wings in order to save Saya.]]
* ImprobableWeaponUser: A [[SenselessViolins cello case]] and with a cello in it.
* InnocentCohabitation: With Saya, during TimeSkip and probably before as well.
* InstrumentOfMurder: The cello is more invincible than Hagi is!
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Despite his love for Saya, he believes that, as her chevalier, his duty is to protect and help her and not reveal his feelings for her.
* IWillWaitForYou: During Saya's hibernation periods, he kills time until she wakes up.
%%* KissOfLife: Twice with Saya.
* KnifeNut: Seemingly able produce an endless supply of throwing knives out of nowhere.
* LivingForeverIsAwesome: Haji is proof that this trope is not for loners; he appreciates his immortality because without it he couldn't serve his mistress when she's awake or watch over her when she hibernates. Though one must wonder what he does during the latter.
%%* LongHairedPrettyBoy
* MistressAndServantBoy: With Saya before and after the TimeSkip.
* MrFanservice: Lampshaded in the anime when Saya has to infiltrate a Vietnamese boarding school and Hagi poses as a gardener to protect her. Cue squealing fangirls.
%%* MysteriousProtector
%%* NoOneCouldSurviveThat
%%* OddFriendship: Him and Riku could count.
* PartialTransformation: The most we ever see of his chiropteran form are his [[WolverineClaws claws]] and [[WingedHumanoid wings]].
* ThePromise: Promised to [[spoiler:kill Saya]] after she kills Diva. Of course, afterwards, he [[spoiler: breaks that promise and convinces her to live on.]]
%%* TheQuietOne
%%* RedRightHand: See ShapeshifterModeLock below.
%%* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld
* SenselessViolins: Cellos in this case.
* ShapeshifterModeLock: Haji's right hand is permanently Chiropteran after a [[BerserkMode berserk]] Saya [[AnArmAndALeg chopped it off]] during the Vietnam War. He hides it by keeping it wrapped up in bandages, only exposing it when TheGlovesComeOff.
* SlipknotPonytail: His hair coming loose from its ribbon is invariably a sign that Hagi is taking a nasty beating.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Hagi or Haji?
%%* TheStoic
%%* TallDarkAndHandsome
%%* UndyingLoyalty: To Saya.
* WillfullyWeak: Suppresses a lot of his natural abilities because when Saya first saw him use them, she was terrified. He also basically starves himself of blood, which is why he is not as strong as the other chevalier, though if he tapped into his natural abilities and had enough blood, he would probably be second only to Amshel.
%%* WingedHumanoid
%%* TheWorfEffect
%%* YouShallNotPass

[[folder:George Miyagusuku]]
->Voiced by: Creator/HochuOtsuka (JP), Creator/WallyWingert (EN), Antonio García Moral (SP), Germán Fabregat (Latin-American SP)

George Miyagusuku was an Okinawan-American US Army veteran and the adoptive father of Kai, Riku and Saya.
%%* BadassNormal
%%* BoisterousBruiser
* CoolOldGuy: He is a kindly adoptive father to Riku, Kai and Saya, doing everything in his power to raise them so they will be happy and even [[spoiler:spends his dying moments giving them some words of wisdom.]]
%%* DyingAsYourself
* ParentalSubstitute: All three of the children in his care lost their parents [[spoiler:a long, loooong time ago, in Saya's case]] and he does all he can to give them a good home life as their adoptive father.
%%* PapaWolf
* SacrificialLion: Dies [[spoiler:early on in the series, asking to be killed by Saya before becoming a Chiropteran from Delta 67.]]
* SupremeChef: He is a very good cook which is why he chose to run a restaurant.

[[folder:Kai Miyagusuku]]
->Voiced by: Creator/HiroyukiYoshino (JP), Creator/BenDiskin (EN), Dani Albiac (SP), Gabriel Ortiz (Latin-American SP)

Kai Miyagusuku is one of the main protagonists of the series. He is the adopted son of George Miyagusuku hence, Riku and Saya's "elder" brother.
* AbnormalAmmo: After the TimeSkip, he uses special incendiary rounds that explode on contact; slightly better than conventional bullets against [[GoodThingYouCanHeal chiropterans]], but not by much.
* AdoptivePeerParent: [[spoiler:In the epilogue after he adopts Diva's daughters.]]
%%* BadassBiker
* BadassNormal: After the TimeSkip, even though he is still a normal human being without any special abilities, he becomes competent enough to stand his own against a chiropteran for a time, just like David and Lewis.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards Saya and Riku, naturally. He also seems to get along very well with kids who aren't related to him.
* CharacterDevelopment: [[spoiler:Riku's death changes Kai.]] He faces his responsibilities, hones his skills to be ready, bears the torch of Red Shield to keep hope alive. He believes that Saya will come and his faith pays off.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: Kai [[spoiler:lives to return to his family's restaurant and presumably accomplishes his dream of running it with his family]], although the ones he gets are admittedly not exactly the ones he was expecting. Kai [[spoiler:loves the girls like his own regardless]]. Plus, he has the promise of [[spoiler:his sister one day waking up and coming home]] to look forward to...
%%* EmoTeen:
%%* FieryRedhead
* HappilyAdopted: Both he and Riku were adopted by George after their biological parents died.
* TheHeart: Becomes this for Saya and Haji after the timeskip, trying to make them work again with the Red Shield and leave behind their lonely attitude.
%%* HotBlooded
%%* IdiotBall
%%* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: To Saya.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Before the timeskip he was very rude and stubborn, an attitude that annoys David greatly. He becomes better after the time skip, though.
%%* LoveHurts: Both romantic and familial.
%%* MotorcycleOnTheCoastRoad
* NotBloodSiblings: Kai is ''very heavily'' implied to have romantic feelings for Saya. That Saya clearly sees him as a brother, coupled with the show and the characters' emphasis on family, may make some viewers a little uncomfortable with the [[BrotherSisterIncest incestuous overtones]]. It makes sense when you realize that they met and became siblings only a year before the series starts and, well, they ''are'' hormone-addled teenagers. (Kai is, anyway.) Kai never really expresses his feelings to Saya, leaving it up in the air whether he still wanted to pursue a romantic relationship with her in the future. It's hinted by the end of the series that he has accepted that Saya loves him but in a platonic way and that his crush on her has turned into something more familial... which was probably helped by [[spoiler:losing every other member of their family]]...
* ObliviousToLove: Ironically, just as Saya doesn't notice his romantic attraction towards her, Kai doesn't realize that Mao loves him and is confused when she kisses him.
* ParentalSubstitute: [[spoiler: To Diva's daughters. Guess he takes after George.]]
%%* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Manly Man to Riku's Sensitive Guy.
* TookALevelInBadass: After the timeskip. He became much more useful and is capable of destroying Corpse Corps and design a plan to defeat James.
* TookALevelInKindness: After [[spoiler: Riku's death]] he matures greatly and becomes a much more nice person in comparison with his past self.
* TragicKeepsake: [[spoiler:He keeps his late adoptive father's gun.]]
* UseYourHead: Using a combination of this and GetAHoldOfYourselfMan is probably his most notable CharacterTic in the manga.

Riku Miyagusuku is the adopted brother of Kai and Saya, the youngest of George Miyagusuku's three adopted children and Saya's second chevalier.

->Voiced by: Creator/JurotaKosugi (JP), Christopher Nissley (EN), Alfonso Vallés (SP), Rolando de Castro (Latin-American SP)

David is a member of the Red Shield. He works as an agent assigned to direct collaboration with Saya.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Unlike in the anime, David is shown to be cold and harsh towards Saya in the manga. He sees her nothing but a weapon.
%%* BabiesEverAfter: With Julia.
* BadassNormal: Unlike Saya, he hunts vampire-like monsters without any inherent special abilities.
* GoodIsNotNice: He ''completely pounds'' Kai early on to teach him a lesson about the kind of world they're in and forces Saya to fight despite full knowledge that it's tearing her apart.
%%* DrowningMySorrows: During his BSOD.
* HeroicBSOD: After [[spoiler:Red Shield's headquarters are destroyed, Riku is killed, and Saya disappears without a trace]].
* HesBack: When Saya and Haji return after the TimeSkip.
* OddFriendship: Seems to have an odd sort of bond with Haji, of all people, and is something that, while subtle, actually occurs throughout much of the series.
* RedBaron: "David the Invincible"
%%* SaltAndPepper: With Lewis.
* TakingTheBullet: For Julia, which facilitates her return to the Red Shield.
* UnresolvedSexualTension: With Julia. [[spoiler: Resolved in the end.]]

Lewis is a regular member of Red Shield and is responsible for providing gadgets and transportation for the organization's operatives.
* BadassNormal: Like most of Red Shield, he fights quite well against Chiropterans despite being completely human.
* BigEater: He loves to eat.
* BigFun: The carefree Lewis is the biggest case of comic relief in the series, and that's taking into account that the series is very serious.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Despite his appearance and comic relief status, he is capable of fight a Chiropteran as good as David is.

Professor Collins has been in the hierarchy of Red Shield directly behind Joel Goldschmidt.

[[caption-width-right:350:[[labelnote:Click here to see Diva's face (a major spoiler).]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/diva01_502.png[[/labelnote]]]]

Diva is the main antagonist of Blood+ and [[spoiler:is the younger twin sister of Saya]]. She is the greatest sworn enemy of the Red Shield and, like Saya, is a pure blooded Chiropteran queen born from the Chiropteran Mummy.
* AdaptationalHeroism: While both versions of Diva are [[AntiVillain Anti-Villains]] and {{Psychopathic Manchild}}ren, the manga makes her a much more sympathetic character. Anime!Diva had a sadistic streak and often relished the thought of killing Saya, whereas Manga!Diva genuinely cares for both Saya and her Chevaliers, and doesn't seem to understand the difference between right and wrong. Also, [[spoiler: she does not rape and kill Riku here.]]
* AlasPoorVillain: An in-universe example. [[spoiler: Saya starts bawling her eyes out after killing her, her plan originally having been to die ''with'' her]].
* AllWomenLoveShoes: She sees a guy with cute sneakers, kills him, takes said shoes and wore them for the rest of the episode.
* AntiVillain: Diva is on par with [[Manga/ElfenLied Lucy herself]] when it comes to sympathetic anime villainesses: from the moment she was born, baby Diva was separated from her twin sister and locked up in a lonely cage at the top of a tower for decades, with her only human contact being men who saw her as nothing more than an experiment or an animal. All she ever wanted was to have a family, but she was denied even that, and [[spoiler:died right on the cusp of realizing her dream]]. Diva's story is so saddening that it makes you want to give her a hug. Except then she'd bite your neck and suck you dry, at which point you'd remember that there's a reason why she's an [[AntiVillain Anti-]]''[[AntiVillain Villain]]''.
%%* AxCrazy
* BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil: Let's face it: if you were locked up in a tower room and used as a lab rat for the first fifty years of your life, you'd most likely be as screwed up as Diva.
* {{Bifauxnen}}: After the timeskip, when she changes her face and her body to look [[spoiler:like Riku]].
* BigBad: She is the most powerful enemy in the show and stopping her is Red Shield's goals throughout. Despite this, Diva simply takes a childlike interest in the destruction she causes. [[spoiler:This is eventually subverted when it's revealed Amshel was merely using her for his own goals]].
* BrownNote: Her singing activates Delta 67, a chemical agent Cinq Fleches works on infecting most of the population with. When it activates inside people, it transforms them into mindless, [[{{Mook}}s low-level]] chiropterans. [[OhCrap Diva becomes a famous singer whose performances are broadcast across the world.]]
%%* CainAndAbel: The Cain to Saya's Abel.
* CuteAndPsycho: She childishly wrecks a dress so that Amshel will have to get her a new one, like a spoiled daughter. She also kills a man just because she wanted his shoes.
* {{Dark Action Girl}}: As an EvilCounterpart to Saya, Diva's a lethal fighter.
* DeadPersonImpersonation: Tries this on Kai by creepily imitating [[spoiler: Riku]] as a way to [[WeCanRuleTogether convince him to join her.]]
* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: [[spoiler: Completely averted in-story, as her rape and murder of Riku is shown as her MoralEventHorizon crossing.]]
* TheDreaded: Is this to the Red Shield to the extent that, when he meets her face-to-face, Lewis is so thoroughly intimidated by her that he falls back on his ass in fear, and is ''extremely'' relieved when she chooses to pursue Saya over eating him.
* EvilCounterpart: [[spoiler: Diva is what Saya would've been like if [[ForWantOfANail she had been the one locked in the tower instead of raised like a human]]. (Compare Zoo!Saya to Modern!Diva, for example.) After Diva's death, Saya even holds her hand and calls her "my other half" in the Japanese dub.]]
%%* EvilDiva
* EvilIsHammy: In the English dub, anyway.
%%* EvilLaugh
%%* EvilTwin: To Saya.
* FaceStealer: Spends much of Seasons 3 and 4 [[spoiler:appearing as a paler, black-haired, blue-eyed version of Riku]].
* FanDisservice: She gets a ToplessnessFromTheBack shot right before [[spoiler:raping and killing Riku.]]
* FauxAffablyEvil: Drinks human blood, kills people by the truckload, and [[spoiler: rapes a boy in his early teens to impregnate herself]], all while singing, prancing around in fancy clothes, and giggling childishly.
* FlowerMotifs: Blue roses. They're everywhere around her and her chevalier.
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:Saya's "father" locked her up in a tower as part of his experiment, while he raised Saya lovingly. This experience drove her mad with grief and jealousy.]]
* GigglingVillain: Has an [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRO2K5xu18A annoying childish giggle, and enjoys giggling]].
* TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry: [[spoiler:With Saya, as the "pretty" sister.]]
* GoOutWithASmile: In both the anime and manga series. Anime-wise, [[spoiler:the last thing Diva does before she dies is smile at the cocoons of her babies and caress them]]. In the manga, it's to [[spoiler:give Saya a smile when the latter is about to commit suicide, and use her last breath to tell Saya to live]].
* TheHeavy: [[spoiler:Amshel]] is the one with the EvilPlan but Diva is the most powerful antagonist in the series, with stopping the untold destruction she directly causes being the reason for Red Shield to fight. Being that she is [[spoiler:Saya's younger twin-sister]] also makes her the most personal enemy for the protagonist.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:Her rape and murder of Riku got her pregnant like she wanted, but the pregnancy sapped the poison out of her blood, thus disabling the only thing that could kill Saya. Therefore, when the sisters finally got their fight, Diva had absolutely nothing to kill Saya with and, after what Diva did to Riku (not to mention other people), Saya has every reason in the world to want her dead. It was only a matter of time before Saya succeeded in killing Diva.]]
* ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty: Like [[spoiler:Saya]], she stopped aging at sixteen.
* ImplacableMan: Female version. She's bent [[spoiler:on finding and raping Riku]]. And she's '''not''' going to let anyone get in her way to achieve this goal.
* LargeHam: Especially in the English dub.
* LightIsNotGood: Diva's eyes are bright blue and she favors light clothing but she's also the most dangerous Chiropteran in the show.
* LightningBruiser: She's able to effortlessly throw Saya through a brick wall, FlashStep with ease, and take bullets to the chest while barely even flinching.
* MadwomanInTheAttic: Cute Psycho in the Tower in this case.
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: In episode 24, she gets shot in the chest by David, and her sole reaction is to complain about the bullet hole in her dress. Of course, given her HealingFactor, it's probably not really a ''major'' injury to her.
* MeaningfulName: Because she, you know, [[DontExplainTheJoke she sings really well.]] The scientists who experimented on her didn't give her any name, but Saya named her when they were children after hearing her singing.
* AMillionIsAStatistic: Quite a few people lost sympathy for Diva after she [[spoiler:raped and killed Riku]]. Sure, never mind that she's filled entire graveyards over the past century. Even then, she won back some favor because of her love for [[spoiler:her unborn babies]]... even though the way she expressed her [[spoiler:motherly love]] was by planning to ''wipe the human race off the face of the Earth for them''.
* MotiveRant: Gives one to Saya right before they fight at the opera house, in the hopes that [[spoiler:her sister]] would agree and they wouldn't have to kill each other.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: She is the exact same size and weight as Saya, but is shown to be powerful enough to punch David across a room and then toss Saya clean through a ''brick wall'' without even trying. As the other [[spoiler: Chiropteran Queen, and a well fed one to boot]] this is justified.
* NotSoDifferent: She feels that she and Saya are the same, being not only chiropterans but also [[spoiler:twin sisters]]. The similarities run even deeper than either of them realize: they both want to have a family, they both want to have a happy life, and they are determined to wipe out an entire race in order to preserve their own. At first, Saya vehemently argues against the idea that she is anything like Diva, but [[spoiler:after killing Diva]] she rather solemnly acknowledges Diva as her "other half" in the original Japanese.
%%* TheOphelia
* PimpedOutDress: Diva loves to dress up in beautiful dresses, the weirder, the better. Of particular note are the dress... thing she wears when she [[spoiler:attacks Riku and destroys the Red Shield's headquarters]] that is just a frilly white cape clasped at the throat, with evening gloves and [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers sneakers]], and the black-and-blue gown she wears to her fight with Saya at the Metropolitan Opera House. Going by the latter outfit's tiara and bat-like wings, it's supposed to show Diva's status as the queen of the chiropterans, but it just looks... odd. The "weird" aspect to her dresses make sense if [[PsychopathicWomanchild Diva]] dresses herself.
* PowerDegeneration: [[spoiler:Nathan explains that as a result of Diva's pregnancy, her blood lost its toxic property. She never realized this, since there was so little information on her species and none at all on what happened when queens became pregnant. When Diva faced off against Saya in their final duel, she effectively went into a gunfight with an unloaded gun.]]
* PsychopathicWomanchild: She acts completely childish and immature, even though she's ReallySevenHundredYearsOld.
* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Her [[spoiler: rape and murder of Riku is depicted as an in-universe MoralEventHorizon crossing]].
* RavenHairIvorySkin: Black-haired, white-skinned Diva is described as "the most beautiful and dangerous woman" by one character. The crowning example of the series.
* RedOniBlueOni: Childish Diva is the Red Oni to withdrawn Saya's Blue Oni.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: [[spoiler: The very first thing that Diva does when Saya releases her from the tower is butcher Joel I and the patrons at his birthday party in retribution for all of the pain and suffering Joel put her through.]]
* StalkerWithACrush: Poor, '''poor''' [[spoiler: Riku]].
* StalkerWithATestTube: Seeks to rape [[spoiler:Riku so she can impregnate herself.]]
* SuperStrength: In episode 24, she flings Saya clean through a brick wall with such force that when Saya hit the ground, the ground actually collapsed under the impact.
* TheVamp: Diva is not shy about using the art of seduction to get what, and who, she wants.
* UnskilledButStrong: To contrast Saya's WeakButSkilled. Diva is nowhere near as skilled as Saya with a sword, but her raw strength and speed more than makes up for it.
%%* VoiceChangeling: See DeadPersonImpersonation above.
* WalkingSpoiler: Trying to find out anything about her prior to watching Episode 24 is a perfect way to spoil the first half of this series.
* WomanInWhite: Nearly every outfit she wears is all-to-mostly white, playing up the LightIsNotGood aspect of the character.
%%* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds:
* WouldHurtAChild: Not only would she hurt a child, she'd take pleasure in doing it. Just ask [[spoiler:twelve-year-old Riku]]. Whom she killed. And then raped. And then [[spoiler:killed ''again'']].

[[folder:Diva's Chevaliers]]
* AdaptationalWimp: In the anime, they are able to [[OneWingedAngel transform into Chiropterans]] to fight at their 100%, and each one of them have an special ability who makes them deadlier in a battle. In the manga, however, the most they can transform are their arms (with no implications they can go OneWingedAngel either), and, apart of Solomon's sword, they don't posses special powers. [[spoiler: Also, James and Nathan have a much small role, with the first being killed in his very official debut.]]
* BloodBrothers: They all share Diva's blood, operate closely together and refer to each other as brothers.
* ManOfWealthAndTaste: They all dress well and are seen in upper-class establishments. Fitting, as they pose as members of a lucrative business.
* OneWingedAngel: Each can take on a monstrous combat form, which they use when they want to get serious in combat.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: With the exception of James (who was turned into a Chevalier during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, thing who would make him 70/80 years old at the time the series started), every one of them are older than 100. Amshel became one in the 18th century, Solomon and Karl approximately during UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, [[spoiler: and there's Nathan, who is implied to be even older than Amshel.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Their eyes glow red when they pull out the guns.
%%* TheRenfield
* UndyingLoyalty: Towards Diva, by instinct. [[spoiler:Though it is possible for them to overcome this.]]

[[folder:Amshel Goldsmith]]
->Voiced by: Creator/JojiNakata (JP), Creator/WallyWingert (EN), Ramón Rocabayera (SP), José Luis Rivera (Latin-American SP)

Amshel Goldsmith was the assistant of the original Joel Goldschmidt. He was Diva's first chevalier.
* TheAce: Diva's most powerful Chevalier, who [[CurbStompBattle easily defeats]] Saya and Haji in their first encounter without a scratch and [[spoiler: rips Solomon's arm off when he announced his desertion in a battle that he ends intact]].
* AmbitionIsEvil: Everything he does is because of his desire to find out everything he possibly can about chiropterans, and if that means overstepping all kinds of moral bounds and nearly causing TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, it's a small price to pay.
* BadassBaritone: And by Creator/JojiNakata, no less.
* BeardOfEvil: Amshel is one of three major characters with a beard and the only villainous one. His is styled as a thin goatee, kept neatly filed, which is befitting of his status as a CorruptCorporateExecutive.
* TheChessmaster: He knows how to play Diva like a fiddle, using her love of destruction to his own advantage and convincing her to sing on stage so he can [[spoiler:use her voice to turn people into chiropterans]].
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Amshel takes on the appearance of a businessman so he can secure funding for researching chiropterans and maintain his own power.
* CreepyCrossdresser: First appears [[spoiler:disguised as an old woman]], then kills a Red Shield operative and spends the next few episodes disguised as her. And in the last few episodes, he arrives for the final battle [[spoiler:disguised as Diva]] to buy time against Saya.
* CurbStompBattle: His initial battle with Saya in the present day. It ends with Amshel crushing Saya's arm and breaking her sword.
* DragonInChief: He is Diva's first Chevalier and runs Cinq Fleches' business operations while [[PsychopathicWomanchild Diva]] is content to cause mindless destruction. He also plans to use Diva for his own ambitions by taking advantage of her CompellingVoice, while she just likes getting the chance to sing on stage. Amshel also survives [[spoiler:Diva's death]] and becomes the [[FinalBoss final antagonist to be defeated]].
* EvilGenius: Amshel runs the business used to fund all of Diva's activities and is a capable scientist, with tons of research on chiropterans.
* EvilutionaryBiologist: Is responsible for the creation of chiropterans and the Schiff.
* FaceStealer: He's introduced after having killed a Red Shield agent and using her form to disguise himself before attacking Saya.
* {{Greed}}: He wants to possess ''everything'' - money, power, Diva, [[spoiler: Diva's children and control the whole world.]]
* HarmlessElectrocution: [[spoiler:Averted. After being impaled on the Chrysler Building's spire, Amshel is fried by a lightning bolt attracted by the spire's point. He survives (barely) but his healing factor has him stuck between his human and chiropteran forms when he returns to finish his fight with Haji.]]
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler:He has this done to him by Haji during the climactic battle with Diva]]
* MadScientist: He wants to know everything there is to know about chiropterans and will do anything to learn. ''[[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Anything]]''.
* TheManInFrontOfTheMan: While masquerading as a simple {{Dragon}} to Diva, the way she talks to Amshel makes it clear she looks up to him and his corporation means he's responsible for her and her Chevaliers' income and while she just wants to sing and cause chaos, it is Amshel who [[spoiler:is the real mastermind, using her desires to fuel his own experiments. Flashbacks also reveal he's responsible for corrupting Diva after her and Saya's father mistreated her. He also steps up as the final obstacle once Diva has been killed]].
* RasputinianDeath: [[spoiler: Haji had a time and half making him truly dead.]]
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler: When Haji uses Saya's sword to kill him for good just before the MET is bombed, right before he completely crystallizes, he impales Haji with his claws and traps him, rendering him seemingly unable to escape the bombings.]]
* TheUnfettered: He'll do whatever it takes to find out everything he can about chiropterans, committing such atrocities as performing genetic experiments on children and trying to turn everyone in UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity into chiropterans themselves.

[[folder:Solomon Goldsmith]]
->Voiced by: Creator/KoujiTsujitani (JP), Creator/DaveWittenberg (EN), Enrique Hernández (SP), Creator/VictorUgarte (Latin-American SP)

Solomon Goldsmith was Diva's fourth chevalier.
* AffablyEvil: Despite being a supporter of Amshel and Diva, Solomon is very polite and handles himself with a gentlemanly demeanour in front of people. He even states that he doesn't like seeing people kill each other.
* AntiVillain: Solomon felt driven to become a Chevalier because he wanted to [[TragicVillain escape the turmoil of fighting]] he saw between humans during World War II. When he [[spoiler:falls in love with Saya he even goes so far as to betray Diva for her]].
* {{Bishonen}}: Solomon retains the appearance of a handsome, slender youth and his good looks are noticed by many female partygoers in one scene.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: His weapon of choice. He shapeshifts his hand into one.
* ChickMagnet: Owning handsome attributes like a kind, gentle smile, he is shown to be the eye-catcher of every woman in any gathering.
* DarkIsNotEvil: [[spoiler:When he [[HeelFaceTurn changes to Saya's side]]]], he starts wearing all black instead.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Though only out of love for Saya, as opposed to a change in morality.]]
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Came to believe this after he was turned into a chiropteran, most likely also the reason he has no regard for human life.
* LightIsNotGood: Described to have the face of an angel and wears white to symbolize his devotion to Diva.
%%* InLoveWithYourCarnage: [[spoiler: To Saya]] in the manga.

* WarIsHell: His experiences during World War I was one of his main reasons to become a chevalier, so he could be free from seeing humans kill each other, only to discover that chiropterans are just as bad.
* WorstAid: After Saya pulls off a DeliberateInjuryGambit to kill [[spoiler: Karl]], Solomon stops her from pulling her katana out of her stomach, warning her that she could potentially damage her internal organs if she forces the blade out before quickly and cleanly yanking the sword out of Saya's body himself. [[GoodThingYouCanHeal If not]] for Saya's HealingFactor, she would have bled out right then and there.

* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler: In his final battle with Saya, Solomon appears and cuts his arm, leaving an opportunity to Saya to kill him by stabbing Karl through herself, crystallizing the Chevalier.

%%* EvilIsHammy: [[spoiler: Especially after he reveals himself to be the Phantom.]]

James Ironside was Diva's sixth and last Chevalier and used to be her favorite. He was in contact with the US military and also the leader of Corpse Corps.
* AdaptationalWimp: In the anime, [[spoiler: to defeat him, it took the combined efforts of Haji, Kai, David, Lewis, the Schiffs, Saya, and Solomon, and he was killed because the Thorn appeared in him in the perfect time to give Saya the chance to finish him, apart that he was overall one of the toughest opponent the Red Shield had to face through the series. In the manga, however, he is easily killed in his debut by Saya (in her Berserker mode), just before he was able to show his abilities.]]
* AllThereInTheManual: His past is never revealed in the anime, but in the official webpage of the series. Here, is revealed he grew out without a mother figure in his life, and eventually participated in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, where he was wounded to death and found by Diva, who turned him into one of his Chevaliers. He came to consider Diva the mother he never had, and is from there whom his loyalty towards her comes.
%%* TheBrute:
* CommandingCoolness: As a high ranking Naval officer, he is responsible for Cinq Flèches military contracts [[spoiler: and later the leader of the Corpse Corps.]]
* DemotedToExtra: [[spoiler: In the manga, he is killed by Saya in seconds just after appearing for the first time along with the other Diva's Chevaliers in the attack of the Red Shield HQ. Compare this with his role in the anime, where he is a powerful opponent and the Arc Villain during the London arc.]]
* {{Determinator}}: In his battle with the Red Shield in Christina Island, he was too focused on defeating Saya that after being wounded by her blood, he tries to take her with him to the hole with nuclear waste. [[spoiler: Too bad that he did not expect Solomon...]]
* {{Irony}}: After an encounter with Saya leaves him fatally wounded and unable to regenerate, [[spoiler:he's forced to get Schiff implants]] to stay alive. This means Diva loses interest in him for the same reason he scorned the Schiff.
* InstantArmor: His skin in Chiropteran form is tough enough to render swords and gunfire ineffectual.

* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler: Dies when he get's struck by the same disease as the Schiff he tried to slaughter]].
%%* MonsterKnight
* OneManArmy: He is one of the toughest opponents that the Red Shield have faced. It takes the efforts of Haji, Kai, David, Lewis, the Schiffs, Saya, [[spoiler: and Solomon]] to defeat him.

* SanitySlippage: After his battle with the Red Shield and the Schiffs on Christina Island, he is seriously wounded and Amshel replaces his missing parts with Schiff one, which makes Diva reject him. This affects him greatly and leaves him mad. [[spoiler: When he confronts Karman about his opinion about the Schiff, he sports an incredibly disturbing smile while torturing him]].

* TragicBigot: His hatred of the Schiff, [[spoiler: especially after Diva rejects him for having most of his body replaced with their parts.]]
* TragicVillain: Perhaps the only one of Diva's chevaliers to be genuinely devoted to her, Diva [[spoiler:casts him off when he's grafted with Schiff body parts following his first defeat by Saya]].
* UndyingLoyalty: To Diva, for saving him when he was about to die. [[spoiler: He is so loyal to her, he goes insane when she rejects him after being implanted with Schiff's parts.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler: Following his rejection by Diva]].

[[folder:Nathan Mahler]]
->Voiced by: Creator/KeijiFujiwara (JP), Creator/WallyWingert (EN), Carlos Lladó (SP), Alan Prieto (Latin-American SP)

The chiropteran known as Nathan Mahler serves as Diva's chevalier, although it is kept a mystery whose Chevalier he actually is.
%%* AffablyEvil:
* AgentPeacock: From his voice to his demeanor to his hobbies he's a textbook case of CampGay [[spoiler: but he's implied to be the most powerful of Diva's chevalier.]]
* AlasPoorVillain: Subverted. He appeared to be rather satisfied with how everything turned out, [[spoiler: and it's shown he survived.]]
%%* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleofAntiVillains Type IV]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Despite working for the villains, he's quite friendly. The few times he does threaten someone, it's ''freaking'' creepy.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Nathan couldn't care less about the ongoing conflict between humans and Chiropterans. His true motives aren't even mentioned until near the end and are cryptic even then.
%%* CampGay
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: His gay mannerism and silly personality make him look like an idiot, but [[spoiler: he is probably the strongest character of the series.]]
%%* TheChessmaster
%%* DarkChick
%%* EnigmaticMinion
* HiddenBadass: Insinuates that he's not only stronger than James and Amshel but [[spoiler: that he's the single most powerful being to appear in the show, ''period.'']]
* KissOfTheVampire: When Diva feeds on him, he goes on about how the sensation is "pure bliss."
%%* LargeHam
* MercyKill: [[spoiler: After seeing that Diva has died and lamenting on her own foolishness, he reverts to his Chiropteran form and gently asks Saya to kill him, since he would essentially be living an empty life of immortality. Saya grants his last wish]]... Although [[spoiler: he's later seen to have survived the encounter and disguised himself as a reporter]].
%%* NotSoHarmlessVillain
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Drops a hint that he was [[spoiler:the chevalier of Diva and Saya's ''mother'']].
* OnlySaneMan: He is the most calm of Diva's Chevaliers and the only one that never actively fights the Red Shield. Compared to Amshel, Karl or James, he is neither a fanatic or nor crazed.
* TheUnfought: Nathan is the only Chevalier of Diva that never fight the Red Shield (except one time that he restrains Haji a bit). Not even in the ending of the series do we see him show his powers.
%%* VoiceOfTheLegion

[[folder:Van Argiano]]
->Voiced by: Creator/JunichiSuwabe (JP), Creator/CrispinFreeman (EN), Albert Roig (SP), Creator/LuisDanielRamirez (Latin-American SP)

Van Argiano is the head scientist studying chiropterans for Cinq Flèches.
* AmbitionIsEvil: The reason why he works with Amshel in his experiments is because he wants to become a successful scientist.
* ArcVillain: During the Okinawa arc, where he is the one pulling the strings through the events of the arc. He is then demoted as a subordinate of Diva's Chevaliers after that.
* BigBadWannabe: At the start of the anime one would think that he's the one behind the chiropterans' appearance. Promotional posters and images also help with this possibility. However, when Solomon and Karl appear in the Vietnam arc, one realizes that Van Argiano is not as big a threat as one would think before.
%%* CorruptCorporateExecutive
* FourEyesZeroSoul: Wears glasses and is capable of terrible and inmoral experiments on people to obtain his goals. Also he knows about Amshel's plan and doesn't do anything to stop him; in fact, he helps Amshel in its realization.
* FrenchJerk: He is from France and is a huge dick with his workers.
* FreudianExcuse: His background in the anime is not revealed, but in the official website it is revealed that he was the minor son in a French family who have seven children and that his older brothers bullied him.
* GeniusSweetTooth: He is always eating candies, no matter in which situation.
* KarmaHoudini: {{Subverted}}. [[spoiler: He survived the chiropteran attack in the Metropolitan Opera House thanks to David, but the last time we see him he is about to be judged in a court for his crimes.]] Played straight in the manga, where he escapes the law successfully.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Van says this during the final confrontation, when he sees people turning into Chiropterans.
* NumberTwo: Become this to Amshel, due to Solomon's continuous absence in his work.
* SmugSnake: His treatment of his workers with condescension and irony make that the people around him dislikes him greatly.
* StarterVillain: He is the first member of Cinq Fleches to appear in the series and the one that causes the problems at the beginning of the series.
* TheUnfought: From the moment he sees the first chiropteran that Saya kills in 2006, he mistakes her for a samurai and says many times during season 1 that he wishes to meet "that samurai". Except in the climax of season 1, when he briefly sees Saya fighting with Karl, he never meets or talks with Saya at all.
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler: He is this for Amshel. Argiano helps him in his experiments with the Delta 67, thinking that he eventually would be promoted to a better position in Cinq Fleches.]]

!!The Schiff

A group of artificial chiropterans created by Amshel in a place called Khirbet with the purpose of create living weapons for the government of the United States. They are all sentient beings, and seeing that they would die enslaved if they stayed in the facility where they were created, they rebelled against their creators and escaped from Khirbet. Due to their defective bodies, they burn if they are exposed to the sun and develop a disease named "The Thorn" that appears gradually in their bodies and crystallizes them, resulting in their painful deaths. They interrogated a scientist on how to cure the Thorn and were told only Saya's blood can save them and so they attack her multiple times during the series.
[[folder:In General]]
* AdaptedOut: The manga adapts them out.
* AntiVillain: They are very violent and don't like humans very much, but they only kill to survive and not for pleasure. Also, while they try to kill Saya, it's also a matter of survival, nothing personal.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Spent most of their existence enslaved, created to be living weapons.
* DarkIsNotEvil: They start out as this, then gradually move to being characters of the light.
* ExoticWeaponSupremacy: Each Schiff has a unique weapon, some of which fall into this category--Moses' [[SinisterScythe colossal, folding scythe]] for example, or Ghee's strange katar-looking handblade.
* GreenEyes: A trait they all share. In the case of Gudriff, he wears green sunglasses.
* HeelFaceTurn: Slowly start doing this once they realize, rather tragically, [[spoiler:when Irène drinks some of Saya's blood and immediately and painfully dies,]] that Saya's blood is not in fact the key to curing them of their inevitable deaths.
* InTheHood: All of them wears black hood suits. {{Justified}}, as the contact with the sun burns them to the death if they expose much time to it.
* NoSocialSkills: Having been raised as living weapons, the concept of simply asking for something they want or for help rather than taking it by force is completely alien to them.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: With their vulnerability to sunlight, they are the closest the series gets to conventional vampires.
%%* PointyEars
* SecretProjectRefugeeFamily: They're experiments with no one else to call family but each other.
* SuperSoldiers: [[spoiler: They are the result of Amshel's experiment to manufacture Chevalier, and despite not quite measuring up to the strength of the real thing, they're fast and powerful in their own right and have a [[HealingFactor similar regenerative ability.]]]]
%%* TheWorfEffect:
* TragicDream: They simply want to be free and cured of the Thorn.
* UndyingLoyalty: To each other.

->Voiced by: Naoki Yanagi (JP), Creator/SteveBlum (EN), Carlos Lladó (SP), Ricardo Bautista (Latin-American SP)

Moses, the leader of the Schiff, is the one who had encouraged them to leave the lab in Khilbet where they were created for the hope of freedom.
%%* {{Bishonen}}
* BreakTheBadass: Goes through this over an episode or two once he realizes that [[spoiler: Karman is dying.]]
* DespairEventHorizon: Finding out that Karman is about to die does not have any positive effect on Moses. Seriously.
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:When he realizes that he cannot save Karman from the Thorn, they both find a beautiful place, exchange some poignant dialogue, and watch the sunset until the sunlight overwhelms them and turns them to ash.]]
* FriendshipMoment: With Karman [[spoiler: just before they commit suicide.]]
* HeroicBSOD: Again, [[spoiler: the knowledge of Karman's imminent death causes Moses to go through one of these.]]
%%* MartialPacifist
* MeaningfulName: He inspired the Schiff to escape the research facility where they were created as test subjects.
* PeekABangs: His hair covers his left eye.
* RedOni, BlueOni: The blue to Karman's red.
* ShipTease: He certainly gets ''extremely'' emotional once he learns that [[spoiler:Karman is dying, especially when he understands the other plans to kill himself rather than slowly let the Thorn take him. Then he wants Karman to live so badly he actually tries to kill Kai, and probably would have succeeded if it weren't for Karman himself interfering in the nick of time. And the fact that he'd rather kill himself along with Karman rather than live for a little longer with Lulu speaks for itself]].
* SinisterScythe: Moses uses a scythe as his weapon.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Karman.

->Voiced by: Creator/KenjiNojima (JP), Creator/DaveWittenberg (EN), Ángel del Río (SP), Roberto Mendiola (Latin-American SP)

Karman is one of the schiffs hunting down Saya in order to survive.
* BreakTheBadass: [[spoiler: Has this done to him by James Ironside, and boy does it hurt.]]
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:When he contracts the Thorn, he plans to do this, but Moses manages to stop him--though only for a short while. As soon as Karman makes Moses realize he can't be saved, they both find a beautiful place, exchange some poignant dialogue, and watch the sunset until the sunlight overwhelms them and turns them to ash.]]
* FriendshipMoment: With Moses [[spoiler: just before they commit suicide.]]
* TheGlassesComeOff: Averted. Karman has his glasses on in every fight he participates in.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Despite acting like a jerkass towards most of the people he meets, he seems to genuinely care about [[MoralityPet his fellow Schiff]].
* RedOni, BlueOni: The red to Moses's blue.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Moses.

->Voiced by: Chiwa Saito (JP), Lara Jill Miller (EN), Mar Nicolás (SP), Ana Lucía Ramos (Latin-American SP)

Lulu is the youngest Schiff member.
* AnAxeToGrind: She carries a battle axe for a weapon.
* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: After enduring all of the struggles and losses she and her band of fellow Schiff went through, she ends up being the LastOfHerKind. On the bright side, she's finally got to see Okinawa and receives medical treatment from Julia to ward off the Thorn.]]
* EarnYourHappyEnding: [[spoiler: Despite losing all her Schiffs friends, at the end of the series Julia finds a way to extend her life and she is able to go to Okinawa, with new friends that care for her.]]
* GenkiGirl: Very energetic and cheerful, especially comparing to his fellows Schiff, who are embittered, cynic or sad..
* LastOfHerKind: [[spoiler: She is the only one of the Schiff that survives to the end of the series.]]
%%* NeverGotToSayGoodbye: To [[spoiler: Moses and Karman.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Her hair is pink and probably is the one who have the most exotic hair color of the series.

* DirtyBusiness: Irene admits to both Ghee and [[spoiler: Kai]] that she does not want to kill anyone anymore, despite having little choice in the matter.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Blonde and the nicest of the Schiffs. She also didn't try to harm humans (even in self defense and when she is hungry) and was very grateful to [[spoiler: Kai when he saves her of a thugs in Paris.]]
* HyperAwareness: Irene is the only one of the Schiff who possesses this ability, being able to sense any target within a fairly wide distance of herself.
* MeaningfulName: Her name comes from the greek word "Ειρἠνη" (Eirene) who means "peace". She is also the most peaceful of the Schiffs.
* MrExposition: [[spoiler: When Kai saves her and ask her about the Schiffs's origins, she tells him all their story of their creation, about the Thorn and why they pursue Saya.]]
* NiceGirl: So nice that is incapable of attack people in fear that her Chiropteran instinct take her. She also assists a kid when he is hurt and don't sees humans as evil beings, unlike her teammates.
%%* ProperLady
* ReluctantWarrior: She doesn't like to kill other beings, so she always tries to avoid fighting, even when she could defeat and kill her opponents.
* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler: Her death, while dramatic and sad, is the thing that put an end to the Red Shield and the Schiff's disputes. It also confirmed that Saya's blood isn't the one that the Schiff needs and later the reason why the Schiffs helps Saya.]]
