A twenty-two-year-old woman who the twins meet on the phantom train as they first travel to Wonderland. She quickly adopts the role of surrogate parent to them, but seems to have her own objectives.

She is a practitioner of a rare technique called Kigen Arts, which she often uses for self-defense until The Cavalry
comes to bail her and the twins out of dangerous situations.

He can carry Lisa and the twins on his back.
Leader of the Comodeen, the rebel faction against Earl. He tends to be played as a comedic character most of the time, but when push comes to shove he's a brave leader who'll risk his life for his men and his ideals.
Cid is a cheerful, optimistic, and energetic technician, a wizard at anything electronic. He spends most of his time, working with his many inventions. He has the unusual habit of naming his machines with female names, and treating them as if they were alive.
