One of the game's protagonists, he is a 20 year old college student who came to LeMU with his friends. After getting trapped in LeMU (by being locked in an elevator with Tsugumi), he becomes part of the group. He is somewhat foolish at times, but is very headstrong and has many leadership qualities.
Anger Born of Worry: When Tsugumi starts running around when she ought to be immobilized, Takeshi gets upset and runs off to confront her. It’s not helped by the pair starting to fight more and more often.
Character Development: Takeshi starts off clueless and useless, but after a day or two he’s become the closest thing the group has to a leader. However, he actively resists changing too much because he’s satisfied with the views he holds now.
Chick Magnet: Takeshi is so charming that he manages to seduce even a computer and an antisocial paranoid disaster. You also has a crush on him, though you only find out in the bad ends.
Determinator: Particularly towards the end. Despite all the shit he's put through, no matter how badly his body is injured, he keeps going no matter what the risks.
Hand Behind Head: On Kid's routes, Takeshi always has his hand behind his head, with the exception of a few CGs.
The game's other protagonist. Presumed to be about 14-15 years old, he mysteriously lost his memories, and has no idea why he was in LeMU. He is a bit timid and unsure, but always seems to maintain a kind disposition.
Defrosting Ice Queen: She refrosts after Takeshi's "death", defrosts again when she discovers she's pregnant, refrosts AGAIN after she's forced to give up Hokuto and Sara, and finally defrosts permanently in the True Ending.
Tsundere: By the end of her route, and permanently by the Epilogue.
"When you close your eyes, I disappear."
A 24 year old woman who seems to work at LeMU, Sora is actually a holographic AI programmed to act as a guide to LeMU. She is calm and collected at all times, and is very helpful in explaining the inner workings of the park.
Conflicting Loyalties: Sora cares about the group a great deal, but she’s also programmed to be loyal to LeMu’s interests. Her security blocks place a higher priority on security than on guest welfare, which she struggles with in several routes. In Takeshi’s routes, a Tief Blau outbreak places more priority onto guest welfare and allows divulging of classified information. In You’s route, her priority levels are rewritten with her consent so that the positions of security and guest welfare are switched, allowing her to help You and the other guests if she considers it necessary. Which she does, of course.
Valley Girl: Played for laughs in her route: when Takeshi is trying to teach her how to act more "human", he teaches her to talk this way. However, when it ends up making Coco cry, they agree she should just talk like she normally does.
A 19 year old employee at LeMU, You is a very energetic girl who often acts as the mood maker of the group, trying to keep everyone's spirits up. Her full name is actually Yuubiseiharukana (due to her father wanting to give her a unique name to contrast with her common last name), but she shortens it to You. Is a good friend of Sara's, who calls her "Nakkyu".
A 16 year old girl who was on a field trip to LeMU, Sara is also an energetic girl. She is very intelligent for her age, already being an accomplished hacker, but she has an obsession with ninjas. She is You's friend and old schoolmate, having gone to the same high school. For some reason, she only appears in the Kid's routes.
A 14 year old girl who was visiting LeMU, Coco is a very childish but upbeat girl who is always smiling despite the dangers. She is accompanied by her robot dog Pipi. For some reason, she only appears in Takeshi's routes.
The Kid from the 2017 incident. During the incident, a brief possession by Blick Winkel causes him to lose his memory. After escaping LeMU, he joins You'haru in the "Third Eye Project", a plan to save Takeshi and Coco. During the time between the two incidents, Kaburaki graduates from school and joins Leiblich, like You'haru.
Talking to Himself: Averted most of the time (due to Takeshi and Hokuto not being voiced for most of the game). The main reason he is almost never on screen with Takeshi after growing up is because Soichiro Hoshi's voice for Takeshi and adult Kaburaki is exactly the same.
The Kid from the 2034 incident, and the game's other protagonist. He is the twin brother of Sara, and the son of Takeshi and Tsugumi, and a Cure-Human hybrid. Like Sara, he was placed in an orphanage by Tsugumi in order to hide the two of them from Leiblich. Despite that, they were both found and captured by Leiblich, who left him with a foster family and kept surveillance on him. His Cure-Human status allows him to see infrared light, and also gives him enhanced strength.
The Tanaka You from the 2017 incident. She is the original You Tanaka, whose father disappeared when she was one year old. During her teenage years, she had a fatal heart condition that would kill her in a matter of years, and agreed to clone herself, giving birth to Yuubiseiakikana. Shortly after, she became an employee at LeMU in hopes of finding out what happened to her father.
The Tanaka You from the 2034 incident. She is the daughter/clone of Yubiseiharukana, and was raised to be completely identical to her. Like You'haru, she became an employee at LeMU to investigate her father's disappearance.
The Third Eye, a.k.a. the reader of Ever17, that is, the player. Blick Winkel is a 4th dimensional being who exists outside of time, being able to travel to any point in time without problem. Blick Winkel observes the events of the 2017 incident (through Takeshi's eyes) and the 2034 incident (through Hokuto's eyes) almost simultaneously, to the point that he believes that the two are the same incident.
All-Powerful Bystander: Blick Winkel can time travel freely, but until the course of events wake him up he can’t even be called an entity. He’s just an observer who watches events the same way someone would look at a bunch of meaningless scribbles. When awakened, he still doesn’t have enough will to act on his own, requiring Hokuto’s help to accomplish anything.
