The Main Cast: The people who with the power to change the worldQ"In this world there are only two types of people. Those who have incurred my wrath, and those that have yet to."
The 5000+ year old master of time. Being born the first Meta-human he was different
from the other people in his home. When he was 5 years old he discovered he could control the flow of time. Eventually his parents, friends, and others in his home town discovered his ability and declared him an abomination. He left them and his country behind and set off to learn how to control his power and to search for others like him. Using his power to keep him alive long after he should died of old age, he eventually discovered another person like him. He then formed an organization to gather everyone like him, whom he considered chosen ones
, and train them in the use of their powers.
As he is somewhere between worlds at the moment the story starts, he recounts the short history of the events that forever changed his world. His testimony will determine whether or not he returns to his own world... or becomes a dimensional being which can travel freely to many worlds.Christina Rath
The main character of Q's recounting. A noble of the Atlantian Ĉon Empire, she initially joins the army as a means of escaping from her supposed boring lifestyle. Instead she finds herself dragged into a war on a global level, and quite a number of people are after her for her power. As it turns out, she is a Meta-human with the rare and extraordinary ability to bend reality to her will.
Despite her power she continues to fight just as a normal human due to a self-imposed code not to abuse her power. However, with all the craziness going on she may very well have to test the absolute limits of her will and resolve.Lemuré Ĉon a.k.a Midnight"Why have I done what I've done? The answer is quite simple. Because I can."
The first princess of the Empire and a major influence on the tide of the war. She tends to hang back and manipulate events from the shadows, slowly manipulating everyone into doing her will. She too is Meta-human, with an ability that has granted her a mind far more advanced than any human that has ever or will ever live. She seems to delight in the plight of her nation which is because ,as is turns out, she is actually the masked rebel, Midnight.
She also has a slight crush on her older brother, Xenon.
MAJOR SPOILER BELOW! Do not read unless you want the story to be ruined! She supposedly kills herself and takes the Imperial nobility with her, but it was all just an act. Her real plan was to build a base on the moon and construct a satellite array to force peace on the Earth. If that didn't happen, she would gather a few people on her moon base, called Neo Eden, and glass the planet. She would then release nanomachines onto Earth which would begin to repair it to a habitable enviroment for the descendants of the people on Neo Eden for their eventual return.Xenon Ĉon
The first prince of the Empire. He's a cold, cruel, and calculating noble who has ulterior motives for almost everything he does. Or so he appears. In reality he only wants a better world, albeit at any cost.
He pretends not to notice or care about Midnight's rebellion but in reality he is actively doing everything he can to crush it. He funds a large majority of Imperial Research Projects, the most prominent being Seraph and Paladin Projects.
He prefers to work from the shadows, manipulating events from afar rather than doing things out in the open. Despite his method of working out problems, he's an accomplished pilot and master swordsman. No one else in the entire world has the skill to match his swordsmanship, both inside and outside of a mech. He knows about his sisters attraction to him, but her doesn't reciprocate the feelings. He does, however, protect her and helps bring about a world that he believes is her ideal. Ode. a.k.a O a.k.a Seth
One of Q's Letters. A very old and powerful Meta-human. He's 2500 years old and has the ability to generate a life-draining field that drains the life energy of everything around him and adds it to him. However, due to an unstable emotional state at power manifestation his abilities are out of his control. This means the field is permanently active and anyone who stays close to him risks dying. The risk increases the longer that someone stays close to him.
He follows Q with devotion because Q was his mentor. He initially worked alongside Midnight but then he broke away from the Crusaders to follow his own path. He hangs with a woman named Revy Valentine, the great-great-granddaughter of a close friend of his. He vowed to protect her but found himself falling in love with her. Despite this, he maintains an air of disdain for her and everyone else. This is because he prefers not to get emotionally attached to people for fear that his ability will take them away from him.
