This page is only for characters original to Cross Edge. If you're looking for a non-original character, refer to the character sheet of their respective series/game.

York Neely/Yuuto Kannagi

The protagonist of the game. Apparently the son of a jujitsu master, York became bored with this "outdated" style of fighting and took up gunplay. Very protective of his childhood friend Miko, who is the only person York isn't a Jerkass to.

Tropes associated with York:
  • Accidental Pervert: Sometime right before the game's events, he accidentally walked in the bath while Mikoto was still there. She brought out her naginata after that. It's viewable at the gallery.
  • Blood Knight: Evident right off the bat. The first battle of the game opens (somewhat) like this:
    Miko: What happened?
    York: Dunno.
    Miko: Where's Troy?
    York: Somewhere.
    Miko: Where are we?
    York: Don't care-hey, look, a wolf!
    Wolf: Grawr 'n' stuff.
    Miko: Maybe it's friendly.
    York: Nope, it's hostile, and I'ma kill it.
    Wolf: Hwoo?
    Four Quick Shots later
    York: What, it's over?
    More wolves show up
    York: Yay!
    Morrigan shows up and takes out two of the wolves
    York: Killstealer!
  • Boring, but Practical: Quick Shot, York's base attack. Follows this formula:
    shoot_times = 5;
    hit_times += 5;
    AP -= 8;
    if (AP >= 8) then
    repeat
    else
    break loop
  • Bullet Time: Taken to ridiculous extremes with Null Form.
    • To elaborate, York fires a single bullet from his guns, then kicks the enemy four times before the bullet even moves. Said bullet then strikes the enemy and explodes. York even has time to pose after the kicks.
  • Cool Shades
  • Did You Just Romance Cthulhu?: With the reveal that Miko is a Baku, on the True End he does just this.
  • Dub Name Change: His name was changed from Yuuto Kannagi to York Neely in localization.
  • Evolving Attack: Foxfire is essentially a Light-Elemental Point Blank with a laser.
  • Fiery Redhead: The male version
  • Guns Akimbo
  • Gun Fu: The most prominent of the cast's gun-users. Actually created his style from the ground up.
  • Gun Kata
  • The Gunslinger: Type C (The Woo)
  • Impossible Thief: Exactly how can his EX 1 skill Faceoff can steal items from enemies, this troper will never know.
    • Then again, his Snipe attack pulls it off as well. Exactly how a long-range shot can steal something, I will never know...
  • Jerk Ass: To everyone except Miko.
    • Zelos is also an exception, seeing as these two can actually get along just fine.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Stats notwithstanding, his fighting style indicates this.
  • Not Distracted by the Sexy: When Morrigan joins the team, York doesn't act so titilated. The first thing he says to her is "I suppose we should thank you for saving us?" and when she asks if she can join he says "you're not gonna leave us alone if we say no."
  • Pistol-Whipping: Averted; York seems to prefer using his feet in melee combat
  • Red-Headed Hero
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Troy's blue. With corresponding hair-colors.
  • Slasher Smile: During his EX-Attack cut-in
  • Understanding Boyfriend: He knew right from the start that Miko and May were the same person. He stayed quiet about it because he figured she had her reasons for acting as though they were different people.
  • Victorious Childhood Friend: With Mikoto if you get the True Ending, complete with Babies Ever After.

Mikoto "Miko" Aiba

Voiced by: Rina Sato
York's childhood friend and classmate, who has lived with his family since her parents died. Often the voice of reason to York, and the only person who can keep him in line. Like York, she retains her memories when transported to the soul world.

Tropes associated with Miko:

May

A mysterious girl who appeared before York and Miko, requesting their assistance in releasing trapped Souls. She's surprisingly mature for her age.

In truth she is the personification of Miko's powers as a Bright Baku.

Tropes associated with May:
  • Humanoid Abomination: She's a Baku. Surprising since she looks nothing like an elephant tiger chimera nor a tapir.
  • Mysterious Waif
  • Psychopomp: She has the power to send Souls to the worlds they belong in. Though not quite, the explanation given is largely a cover what what she really is and is doing. While this is her most obvious ability, the Souls are in fact fragments of various minds being returned to their proper world.
  • Unreliable Expositor: Many things she states initially are revealed to be false. Notably "Souls" are fragments of minds and the "Real World", a world supposedly without magic and the like, is not quite so realistic as creatures like Baku exist in it, it was only "real" in that it was her world while any other similar world was a "Fantasy World".

Troy/Touya Ijuin

York's best friend and rival. Like York, Troy is the son of a reknowned martial artist, in his case kenjutsu. His personality being the opposite of York's, the two clashed often.

Troy was with York and Miko before they were transported to the soul-world, and was also transported there; unlike his friends, however, Troy lost his memories, and wound up as one of the Twelve Knights.

Tropes associated with Troy:
  • The Atoner: Feels bad about fighting (and forgetting) his friends, helping the bad guys, and attacking Miko, and shows this.
    • Apparently feels bad about every past thing in his past. His line upon leveling-up is even "I refuse to go back to what I once was."
  • Cool Sword
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Way to go, Empyreal One. You try to deal with someone who is laying waste to all of your plans with a person who is not only their friend, but also the only one the former considers an equal in combat.
  • Oblivious to Love: Seems completely unaware of Anesha's obvious attraction to him.
    • However, in the True End route, she does properly confess to him, and he does reciprocate.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue Oni to York's Red, complete with appropriate hair colors.
    • Although apparently, in their backstory when they first met, Troy was the red to York's blue.
  • Troy Baker (his English VA. Also The Danza)
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

Vivi

Eldest and only boy of the triplets, as well as the only one of them who can hear the voice of the "Empyreal One". As such, he is often seen as the one commanding the Twelve Knights. Despite his obvious power and connection to what can be viewed as a dark god, Vivi is a very nice (and somewhat scaredy-) boy.

Tropes associated with Vivi:
  • Bare Your Midriff: A bit hard to see, but he does expose his navel.
  • Dude Looks Like A Loli: Seriously.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: He's York and Miko's son, making him a Human Baku hybrid.
  • Healing Hands: While not the only party member with a healing skill (Aurica, Misha, Marie, Miko, and Mimi also have them), Vivi's Sanctuary has the largest radius out of all of them (excluding Aurica's EX-1) at two-spaces. To put this in perspective, your side of the battle area is three rows of four spaces each.
  • Hidden Depths: Post-game at least when everyone breaks the fourth wall. He's portrayed as a sadistic kid.

Cece/Iruma

The middle child of the triplets and often mediator between Vivi and Mimi, she acts as Vivi's interpreter, though she can be a bit mean to him as well.

Tropes associted with Cece:

Mimi/Eruma

The youngest of the triplets, Mimi could very well be the poster-child of Spoiled Brat, given her attitude towards everyone working beneath her, even harassing her older brother from time to time.

Tropes associated with Mimi:

Lazarus

The Gunslinger of the Twelve Knights, Lazarus has a rather laid-back persona, which often puts him at odds with his co-workers, even surprising the main group. Following a one-on-one duel with York, he joins the team later on. He's later shown to have a perverted streak a mile wide, which ends with him joining Prinny in attempting to peek in on the girls during the Hot Springs events (and getting beaten up).

Tropes associated with Lazarus:

Anesha

The sole woman of the Twelve Knights, Anesha loves bloody battles, even having gotten the nickname of 'Goddess of Carnage'. It's somewhat obvious she's developed feelings for Troy, though he doesn't seem to notice.

Tropes associated with Anesha:

  • Absolute Cleavage: Her default outfit.
  • Ambiguously Human: Despite her supposed artificial nature, she ends up in the "Real World" in the True End. In combat she often mentions draining the energy from her foes when regaining AP, implying a slightly vampiric nature as well.
  • Blood Knight: You did read her profile, right? She's basically a human Morrigan.
  • Pinocchio Syndrome: After the final fight of the True End, she gets to leave the game's world and ends up in the "Real World" and is seen meeting up with Troy at a hospital.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Goes down to at least her knees.
  • Sinister Scythe: The first member of the team to use one.
  • You Gotta Have Pink Hair

Raizen

Don't let his gray hair deceive you, Raizen is an accomplished swordsman. Among the Twelve Knights, he's the calm, rational person of the group. Meu actually mistakes him for her own grandfather.

Tropes associated with Raizen:

Augustine

If a group has to have at least one pyscho on its team, Augustine fits the bill, his own battle stance showing him wobbling around all over the place. He's got a loud, arrogant persona, which usually leads to everyone chewing him out.

Tropes associated with Augustine:

  • Chew Toy: During the Post-game content. It must be seen to be believed.
  • Knife Nut: Wields two of them.
  • Reverse Grip: How he holds his knives.
  • Slasher Smile
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: His Slashing Viper EX can inflict incapacition, which, outside of an item or two certain skills, can't be easily healed and it hits for a wide area. This teaches you to not stick with the default lined up formation and to pace yourself during boss fights to prevent giving them their EX skills.
    • Becomes even more egregious if you're aiming for the True Ending. If you even touch him before the fight in Pragma, you're locked out of the True End path. The lesson there being that for many, but not all, bosses the best solution is to wait it out.

Judas

The leader of the Twelve Knights, he's the one taking commands from the triplets and relaying them to the others. Among the triplets, though, he's considerably close to Vivi, acting as a surrogate father or big brother to him.

Tropes associated with Judas:

  • Big Brother Instinct: Often the only one who defends Vivi.
  • Black Knight: Minus the helmet, and with some gold trim on his armor.
  • Cool Sword
  • Meaningful Name: Lampshaded during the post-game. When the triplets ask him why he'd betray them.
    Judas: Stop looking at me! What did you expect from me?! My name is JUDAS, for crying out loud!
  • The Stoic: Doesn't show emotion too much, making it tough to tell what he's thinking.
    Judas: Just call me Judas the Jewel, rebelling against his pure conscience! *blows raspberry*
