-> Voiced by: Creator/KaeAraki (Japanese, TV series), Creator/NorikoHidaka (Japanese, radio dramas), Creator/BridgetHoffman (as "Ruby Marlowe", English)

* AllLovingHero: This young woman loves near everyone and is immensely forgiving.
* AssKicksYou: Her hip attack in the first episode.
* AttemptedRape: Frequently a victim of this as rape is supposed to neutralize her priestess powers.
* BigEater: One of the most emblematic female examples. It should be noted that, by WordOfGod, she's supposed to be pudgy.
* BookDumb: Subverted: she's shown as more or less average in grades and works hard to get good ones [[spoiler: and manages to get in a quite prestigious high school]].
* ClothingDamage: Whenever she is attacked, sometimes reducing her clothes to rags clinging to her underwear (which always stays miraculously intact).
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Displayed when she successfully saves her six bodyguards from Soi's lightning attack.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Brown eyes and brown hair. Although granted, Miaka's eyes are more hazel than truly brown.
* DamselInDistress: Often runs into dangerous situations and needs to be saved.
* DamselOutOfDistress: Played with. In the first episode she's doesn't hesitate to headbutt or pile drive thugs that accost her but she can't hit them hard enough to make them stay down. This means she still needs rescuing. On another occasion, she was trapped in a pocket dimension while a demon used her body to make trouble for her guardians. [[spoiler: She badly injured herself to wound the imposter and escape but then she needed a blood transfusion.]]
%%* TheDitz
%%* DrivenToSuicide: More than once.
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: She starts wearing her hair down as she matured.
%%* GoodSamaritan

%%* NaiveEverygirl
* NeverGotToSayGoodbye: [[spoiler:Due to being back in her own world at the time, she's not present during Mitsukake's death.]]
* {{Nice Girl}}: Despite having flaws, Miaka is a kind-hearted girl who forgives mostly everyone who wronged her and she is shown to put her friends and others before herself when she summoned Suzaku.
* ObsessedWithFood: To the point where she literally can't control herself around food, and daydreams about it frequently. The bad guys (and Taiitsukun) take advantage of this more than once!
* OdangoHair: Her default hairstyle. In the manga she'll often wear other hairstyles, but in the anime she wears her hair this way almost exclusively when it isn't let down.
%%* OfficialCouple: With Tamahome.
%%* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Until she was sucked into the book of TheFourGods, that is.

%%* {{Tsundere}}: Towards Tamahome.
* TooDumbToLive: Though Miaka doesn't actually die in this series, that is not due to lack of effort on her part. Time and time again, she runs headfirst into danger alone, despite not having any magic or combat skills, and despite having 7 guardians whose sole purpose for existing is to protect her. She survives only because of the Suzaku 7 wage a vigorous battle with darwinism to keep her alive and the fact that most the enemies just want to kidnap her instead of kill her.
* VirginityMakesYouStupid: Miaka is a virgin, and she's also [[DumbIsGood a little on the slow side, but clearly well-intentioned]].
%%* VirginPower
* WeddingEnhancedFertility: [[spoiler: When she marries Taka/Tamahome in "Eikoden," they conceive a baby on their honeymoon, making that baby extra special. It's the LivingMacguffin needed to summon Suzaku again.]]

* GreenEyedMonster: Despite having her own bodyguard admirer in the form of Suboshi, Yui actually yearns for Tamahome, one of the Suzaku ''and'' Miaka's main LoveInterest. This only causes Yui to resent Miaka even more.
%%* EvilCounterpart: [[spoiler:To Miaka.]]
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:Though she pulls a HeelFaceTurn in the end.]]
* FaceHeelRevolvingDoor: [[spoiler:From Heel as a RivalTurnedEvil to Face to BrainwashedAndCrazy Priestess of Seiryuu to solid Face again.]]

%%** LoveRedeems

%%* RevengeBeforeReason
* RivalTurnedEvil: After her own trip inside the book ends in [[AttemptedRape less than ideal results]], Nakago exploits Yui's emotionally vulnerable state by [[ManipulativeBastard manipulating]] her into blaming Miaka for her misfortunes. Thus begins Yui's growing hatred of her former best friend and eventual rise as the Seiryuu priestess. Thankfully, she later [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone sees the error of her ways before]] it's all too late.
%%* TookALevelInJerkass: [[spoiler:Siding with Nakago is this one, but the LaserGuidedKarma she receives brings her back to her senses.]]

He was aware of these and when he learns that he is a Suzaku warrior and the Suzaku Priestess will come to his world, he wishes that the priestess will help end his loneliness and find true friends who will accept him as a person.]]

-> Voiced by: Creator/ChikaSakamoto (Japanese), Creator/MinamiTakayama (Japanese, CD Drama), Creator/JunkoMinagawa (''Suzaku Ibun'' game), Creator/MaryElizabethMcGlynn (English)

* AmbiguouslyBi: He's in love with Emperor Hotohori, but there are subtle hints that he ''might have'' also developed feelings for Miaka in the time before his death.
** AllLoveIsUnrequited: Nuriko stated in volume 9 that his female side liked Hotohori, but his male side loved Miaka... and neither returned his feelings.
* AttractiveBentGender: He's a guy and yet he was selected to be in the emperor's harem. Though it seems that almost no one knows that he's a boy at first.
** At first Nuriko only wears female clothes and looks good on them, but later he puts on male clothing more frequently and [[http://orig01.deviantart.net/3c22/f/2015/061/a/5/fushigi_yuugi__nuriko_by_fs_amethystashes-d8k7etw.png damn is he handsome.]]
* BadassGay: The physically strongest of the Suzaku, and also openly proud of the fact that he's a man with the heart of a woman, being head-over-heels in love with Hotohori.
* BeautyMark: He has one under his left eye. It gets quite the focus in a very tragic scene of his past, when [[spoiler: his child self's face is shown while he cries his heart out after the death of his younger sister, Kourin]].
* TheBigGuy: Nuriko has the strength of, 10 or more grown men, but isn't all that tall or muscular or ''masculine'' and in fact is proud of his cuteness.
* BoisterousBruiser: He's proud of his looks, but also VERY proud of his strength.
* BigBrotherMentor: ''Suzaku Hi Den'' states that he played this role towards a girl named [[spoiler: Houki, his IdenticalStranger and Hotohori's eventual wife.]]
** He is also always willing to give Tamahome advices on his relationship with Miaka.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Nuriko is mostly established as a fun, sensible ally... so [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness it's pretty strange to look back at the early incident]] where he almost let Miaka ''drown in a pond'' out of psychotic jealousy over Hotohori.
** More than letting her drown, he was hoping to [[HumiliationConga make her look like a fool in front of Hotohori.]] Miaka [[WhatTheHellHero proved him wrong]] [[ArmorPiercingSlap and even]] ''[[ArmorPiercingSlap slapped]]'' [[ArmorPiercingSlap him for that]], then brought him a small, cute pebble she found in the pond anyway. This proves to be quite the HumblePie eating moment, and from then on Nuriko shapes up into the character we know and love.
%%* CuteBruiser
* DeadPersonImpersonation: [[spoiler: He tried to cope with the death of his beloved sister Kourin [[MySiblingWillLiveThroughMe by dressing up as a girl and living a life similar to the one she would've probably lived]].]]

* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler:The main cause of his death is Ashitare impaling the left side of his body with his claws.]]
* ImportantHaircut: To symbolize that he was not going to chase after his sister's shadow anymore and begin living like a man. [[TearJerker Too bad, it didn't last long...]]
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Like Hotohori and Tasuki, he loved Miaka too, but unlike them, [[GracefulLoser he never fought with Tamahome over that.]] He did confess his feelings to Tamahome, but quickly assured him not to worry, because he also liked Tamahome as well as everyone else, so he wanted them happy together.
* {{Jerkass}}: At first towards Miaka at the start of the manga and anime when he assumed Miaka will ruin his plan of falling in love with Hotohori and begins to treat her badly even worse he attempted to have her drowned, it didn't work and Miaka tells him off by smacking him in the face then gives him a pebble as a act of kindness and he begins to treat her more respectful as a friend.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: After Miaka treats him with kindness, he becomes this as he decided to help Miaka return to her world and once she comes back, he helps her once again in search for the other Suzaku warriors proving he's compassionate and loyal to his friends despite mocking Miaka in a childish way and having bit of a bad temper.
* LargeHam: He sometimes speak very theatrically.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: Justified as he was crossdressing. He later [[ImportantHaircut cuts it off]].
* LoveMakesYouCrazy: His earliest behavior towards Miaka.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: He is pretty slender, but he is stronger than all the Suzaku warriors combined.
* NeverGotToSayGoodbye:
** [[spoiler:To his eldest brother, his last sibling, as Nuriko dies in a mission on a far away land.]]
** [[spoiler:Only Miaka and Tamahome were with him in his death bed. His fellow Suzaku Warriors either are in Konan (Hotohori) or arrived too late (the rest).]]

* PintSizedPowerhouse: In series, but especially in the Eikoden OVA, [[spoiler: where he is reincarnated as a {{Moe}} little girl with SuperStrength.]]
* RealMenWearPink: A dude who crossdresses and behaves rather femininely in female clothes, but when he ditches his female side, he is actually very manly.
* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler:First member of the main cast to bite it.]]
* SilentCredits: A variant. Unlike in the [[spoiler: death episode]] of the other [[spoiler:slain]] Suzaku Warriors, the regular ending theme did not play in Nuriko's but rather a different one but played in a very monotonous manner.
* SnowMeansDeath: [[spoiler:He dies in a snowy field.]]
* StupidSacrifice: [[spoiler: And in the end, it didn't accomplish a lot.]]
%%* SuperStrength
* TookALevelInKindness: After Miaka gives him a HumblePie he begins to treat Miaka nicely while not above insulting her in a playful way.

* EvilLaugh: Especially prominent with the English dub version.

* AllThereInTheManual: Regarding the location of their celestial marks, basic profiles, and [[spoiler: basic cause of death]].
* CurbStompBattle: They were selected as the trope image for [[BattleAura this]] for a reason. Though, “perhaps”, [[UnderestimatingBadassery half of the credits]] goes to them being [[spoiler: DeadToBeginWith]].
* AnIcePerson: Hikitsu likes to form his ice into snakes to do range attacks, while Tomite shoots with ice arrows and forms [[DeadlyDisc deadly ice discs]] to strain an enemy to slowly cut them in half.
* JustToyingWithThem: And they never showed anyone their true colors, [[HiddenBadass one bit]].
* ManlyTears: [[BeautyIsNeverTarnished They shed them]] once they've fulfilled their duties.
* PosthumousCharacter: They've been dead for nearly a century, appearing only as {{Virtual Ghost}}s.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: While they ''were'' originally meant to be one-time characters, it's their [[NoNonsenseNemesis no-nonsense]], [[UndyingLoyalty undyingly loyal]] personalities, and frightful badassery that shuns even [[BigBad The Big Bad Nakago]] to back out in [[AttackAttackAttack directly assaulting]] them is what caught the attention of every reader. Which ultimately [[AscendedExtra triggered their prequel]].
%%Info hidden until reaffirming material: [[spoiler: Even [[Creator/NobuyukiHiyama Hikitsu's VA]] lampshades this to [[Creator/HikaruMidorikawa Tamahome's VA]] [[AllThereInTheManual during their recording]].]]
%%-->[[spoiler: '''Nobuyuki Hiyama:''' "Guest characters [[CurbStompBattle ass-kicking]] the main heroes, is that even legal?"]]
* ThresholdGuardians: Hikitsu and Tomite are tasked to guard [[Main/{{MacGuffin}} The Shinzaho of Genbu]], and has to make absolutely sure the recipient is either the Priestess of Suzaku, or Seiryuu. But witnessing the country of Kutou being [[AmbitionIsEvil corrupted for centuries]] and not repenting back anytime soon. They would expel all persons coming for their Shinzaho in the name of Seiryuu, and await for the Priestess of Suzaku to come forth instead.
* UndyingLoyalty: To their Priestess of Genbu, and their duties as Celestial Warriors.


--> Voiced by: Creator/NobuyukiHiyama (Japanese)

* EyepatchOfPower: He wears one on his right eye, in which no reader nor anime audience would ever know the story behind it. WordOfGod [[AllThereInTheManual once warned]], "Whoever sees his eye [[OhCrap will see Hell.]]"
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: Hikitsu's a tall, elegant-looking {{Bishounen}} sporting long, and flowy platinum-blonde hair. WordOfGod initially stated she gave Hikitsu this image for the sake of contrasting his image from Tomite.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Hikitsu comes off cold, snarky, and harsh towards ''everyone'' who invades their territory and will not hesitate to off people's heads if he deems the intruders are coming for their holy artifact--The Shinzaho with ill intentions. If the intruders meant well, and past various tests he sets towards them to prove their intentions, Hikitsu, by then, will give them his warm welcome.

--> Voiced by: Creator/TetsuyaIwanaga (Japanese)

* AmbiguouslyBrown: The anime gave him this, which is ''very'' awkward. [[spoiler: The ''Genbu Kaiden'' franchise fixed him over though, but then again]]...it just further stresses the factor that "[[FridgeLogic there's no way he can possibly get a tan given his circumstance]]."
* TheArcher: Tomite uses ice arrows as his main weapon of offense.
* JerkassFacade: Tomite gives quite an impolite attitude towards their intruders compared to Hikitsu; even as Hikitsu gave him the green light to place their trust towards The Suzaku Team, Tomite initially was still [[DeadpanSnarker cautious]] of them. But after a few chats down the line, he's shown to chill down and gave a nicer tone toward Team Suzaku. WordOfGod hinted in her [[AllThereInTheManual in-between-story message]] indicating Tomite "had that attitude not because he was truly a jerk, but rather [[GenkiGirl 'a spirited teenager']] who doesn't hold back (his tongue)."
* TheStoic: Compare to Hikitsu, it's clear that Tomite is straight out [[NoSympathy unsympathetic]] towards anyone other than his own fellow teammate.

-> Voiced by: Creator/ChikaSakamoto

* AscendedExtra: Didn't have much development in the series or manga, but the ''Suzaku Hi Den'' novels and OAV gave more insight into her past and personality.

* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: [[spoiler:Averted! She was a [[TheHighQueen pretty decent empress dowager and regent]].]]

* HotConsort: [[spoiler:Of Hotohori.]]

* NiceGirl: A very kind and soft-spoken person.

His and Hotohori's father, TheEmperor, sent Tendou away with the intention of retrieving him when everything had cooled off... but that never happened.

[[folder: Mayo Sakaki]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/JunkoNoda (Japanese), Lynn Fischer (English)

%%* LoveMakesYouEvil
* MorningSickness: Subverted. She sits up in bed heaving, ''thinking'' it's just morning sickness (in her mind, a small price to pay for bearing Taka's child, especially instead of Miaka), but instead, she vomits up a magical orb that lets her see what Taka is up to.

* NunTooHoly: As the {{Miko}}, she's ''supposed'' to be using her wishes for the benefit of Konan (not herself), and she's ''supposed'' to treat her warriors and her attendant with respect. Does she? No. She also spreads vicious rumors about Miaka.
* ParentalAbandonment: Supposed to be her FreudianExcuse, as her parents are about to split up ''very'' messily. Comes off more as {{Wangst}} to Westerners, [[ValuesDissonance who aren't necessarily aware of the HUGE social stigma coming from divorce in Japan.]]

[[folder: From The ''Suzaku Ibun'' Game]]

!! General tropes for Madoka Ootori and Misaki Himuro

* {{Expy}}: Of Miaka and Yui. [[spoiler: Though Misaki is not taken back to Japan after she and Madoka get swallowed inside the book.]]
** In Madoka's case, WordOfGod says that the game manufacturers created her as Miaka's replacement because they thought that it would be contradicting for Miaka to be the main character in the game as, in the original media, [[OfficialCouple she was only deemed to love Tamahome.]]
* SailorFuku: Madoka and Misaki's school uniforms look like Western ones, but the collars look a ''lot'' like those of a ''seifuku''.
* SheCleansUpNicely:
** Madoka, as the PlayerCharacter who becomes the Suzaku no Miko, looks really nice in the Miko robes that Miaka wore in the manga/series. She also looks super cute when she wears [[spoiler: normal Chinese robes in the "Staying Behind" endings]], or when she's [[spoiler: in a [[WeddingsInJapan Western wedding gown]] in Mitsukake's "Reincarnation Ending".]]
** Misaki is also seen in really nice clothes when, just like Yui, she's appointed as the Seiryuu no Miko.

!! Madoka Ootori

The protagonist of the ''Suzaku Ibun'' game, she finds herself lost in the Universe of the Four Gods with her friend Misaki. After Tamahome rescues her from some thugs and helps her escape after she was imprisoned, she learns that Misaki has disappeared. Madoka agrees to become the priestess of Suzaku to find her friend and return home.
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: Madoka's main goal is getting Misaki back no matter what.
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: The normally short-haired Madoka is seen with far longer hair [[spoiler: in Nuriko's Reincarnation Ending.]]
* {{Expy}}: Of Miaka, in terms of disliking studying and being lazy about it, being rescued by Tamahome and becoming the priestess of Suzaku. She does adapt quite faster to her Suzaku no Miko role.
* FixFic: The player can sorta pull this through Madoka, since depending on their actions they can make her [[spoiler: prevent the deaths of the Suzaku Senshi who kick in in the original (Nuriko and Chiriko included)]] or [[spoiler: keep Amiboshi from falling into the river...]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Madoka's uniform's collar and ribbon is red, indicating her becoming the priestess of Suzaku.
* HairDecorations: Madoka has tiny braids, sometimes spiced up with just-as-small red ribbons.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: She and Misaki are best friends and Tamahome even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] that they seem more like sisters to each other than friends.
* LapPillow: She can do this to Chiriko, [[spoiler: but only if the player does NOT manage to save him.]]
* MeaningfulName: Her last name is spelled with the kanji for ''Female Phoenix''. Ootori means Big Bird.
* PsychicPowers: She has an ability known as ''Danger/Death Perception'', which is basically a sort-of SpiderSense that lets her sense when her loved ones are threatened.
* MultipleEndings: This being basically a DatingSim, the players can give Madoka more than one ending. This includes: "Normal Ending" (few love points with anyone), "Friendship Ending" (Misaki has the most points), [[StarCrossedLovers Disappointing Love Ending]] (Madoka gets a guy to love her but must go back home without him since their love points aren't enough), [[spoiler: "[[ReincarnationRomance Reincarnation Ending]]" (Madoka has enough points with her beau to [[LoveTranscendsSpacetime get him to be reincarnated]] a la Taka Sukunami), and [[IChooseToStay "Staying Behind Ending]]" (if the player unlocks a certain scene ''and'' also gets Madoka enough love points with a boyfriend, one can choose between the Reincarnation Ending and a new one where she stays in the Book with her beloved).]]
* PlayerCharacter: Madoka, as the girl who takes Miaka's "place" in the ''Suzaku Ibun'' game.
* ShowerOfAwkward: A sort-of RunningGag that happens once per route is having Madoka trying to take a bath and then seeing one of the guys naked. Including [[AttractiveBentGender Nuriko]], excluding [[AdorablyPrecociousChild Chiriko.]]
* YourUniverseOrMine: [[spoiler: If she has enough affection with a Suzaku Warrior, she can ask Suzaku to either have the warrior be reborn into her world or that she can remain with him in the Universe of the Four Gods. [[GuideDangIt It's easier said than done, however]].]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: Madoka is a Grade A, when in her school uniform.

!! Misaki Himuro

The antagonistic priestess of the ''Suzaku Ibun'' game, she's best friends with Madoka. When the two are studying, Madoka finds the Universe of the Four Gods and both find themselves in Kounan. When some thugs try to pick them up, Misaki tells Madoka to run away by herself and Misaki will bait them to help her. After Tamahome helps her get away from the thugs, Misaki gets taken by some men to Kutou, where she becomes the priestess of Seiryu.
* {{Expy}}: Of Yui. She's best friends with Madoka, both land in Kounan at the same time and get rescued by Tamahome. Misaki eventually becomes the priestess of Seiryu and Madoka's enemy.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Her becoming the priestess of Seiryu is foreshadowed in her uniform, which is identical to Madoka's, except her collar and ribbon are blue.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: She and Madoka are best friends and Tamahome even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] that they seem more like sisters to each other than friends.
* LongHairIsFeminine: Misaki has long hair, contrasting with Yui's boyish haircut as well as Madoka's own.
