    From the "real" universe 

Takiko Okuda / Genbu no Miko

Voiced by: Satsuki Yukino (Japanese, CD Drama, Game)

  • Action Girl: Unlike the other Mikos, Takiko was trained in self-defense in the real world. She's a naginata user, and gets one for her personal use in the Shi Jin Ten Chi Sho.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: Doesn't fit in with the other girls at school, in part because she's the new kid.
  • Ascended Extra - Hero of Another Story: Takiko was only mentioned in the original manga, and had a small cameo in the TV series. She then got a whole manga to herself and her adventures with the Genbu Warriors.
  • Defiled Forever: Takiko climbs into bed topless with the girl she found, hoping to absorb her fever and bring it down. However, as Uruki, this girl does not stay a girl, and Takiko freaks out, saying how she'd never be able to marry.
  • Did I Just Say That Out Loud?: She falls into this blunder sometimes.
  • Greater Need Than Mine: She always puts others's needs ahead of her own. This isn't as good as it seems
  • Hair Decorations: See the red bow on her hair
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Deconstructed. It's useful at times, but Takiko's low self-esteem is part of the reason Genbu consumes her soul.
  • Ill Girl: Takiko already had tuberculosis (like her Missing Mom).
  • Incurable Cough of Death
  • Lonely Rich Kid
  • Kimono Is Traditional: She often wears a hakama. Justified Trope: her story is set in the very straightlaced Taishou Era, and not to mention hakama were used as school uniforms for girls before the sailor uniforms were introduced (and which Suzuno wore years late.)
    • Wordof God says that, when Takiko was still in Tokyo, she did wear a sailor uniform since they came around just about the time when the story takes place.
  • Oblivious to Love: Towards Tomite.
  • Parental Abandonment: Her father is always on trips, and doing research, which turns out to be an attempt to save his wife, who is dying of tuberculosis.
  • Precocious Crush: Her first love was a much older married man (Takao Ohsugi, Suzuno's father). She gets over it though and falls for Uruki.
  • Plucky Girl
  • Rags to Royalty: From a mere human girl (even if a rich one), to the Priestess of Genbu aka the most powerful being in the country.
  • Virgin Soul Sacrifice: When she summons Genbu, he will [attempt to] 'absorb' her, or consume her soul.
  • Tragic Hero
  • Tragic Keepsake: The necklace of Anlu the Oracle.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Look at her page image, then look at the trope list and see that she has a plucky personality and a naginata.

Einosuke Okuda

Voiced by: Tōru Ōkawa (Japanese, CD Drama)

Yoshie Okuda

  • Incurable Cough of Death: Died of tuberculosis at the start.
  • Missing Mom: Takiko's deceased mother.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Just like Takiko. In example, she worries quite a bit about her fatal illness screwing up with her daughter's current and future happiness, specially since she's bullied at school for it.

Takao Ohsugi

Voiced by: Susumu Chiba (Japanese, CD Drama)

  • Big Brother Mentor: To Takiko.
  • The Consigliere: He was Mr. Okuda's right hand and research advisor. He keeps the book after his boss and Takiko's deaths, and after his own daughter Suzuno's adventures in it, he's the one who sends it to the National Library.
  • Nice Guy
  • Precocious Crush: Takiko's feelings for him.

  • Team Dad: Known for grounding her not-even-half-her-age teammates the firm way, and plus, Hikitsu's the officially deemed Mom, there's no need for her to be motherly at all!

  • Knight of Cerebus

  • Self-Sacrifice Scheme: As the twin who bares half of the power of Urumiya, the physically weaker in health due to his incurable Soap Opera Disease, and fully understands that his older brother, Tegu has the more responsible and willing personality to uphold the celestial fate, Hagas has been preparing for his own death in order to transfer the full Urumiya responsibility to Tegu to have him support the Genbu Team for a long time, and eventually Hagas fulfilled it.
  • The Stoic

  • Backup Twin: After Tegu's growth curse has been lifted, he took over Hagas' place in looking after Firuka, and marries her in the end.
  • Big Brother Instinct: He's the older brother and the first of the twins to have his powers awakened, therefore he has the mindset of protecting Hagas since they were toddlers.
  • Bokukko: After being a kid for 17 years, he doesn't kick the habit. note 
  • Captain Oblivious: He's chained within an unknown cave and was ordered to use his powers whenever he "detects any kind of evading threat." This made him unaware that he himself is delaying the Celestial Warriors' mission to save him.
  • Distressed Dude
  • Eleventh Hour Ranger
  • Last Guy Wins: In the end, He paired up with Firuka in place of his brother.
  • Not Growing Up Sucks: He's been a 9 year-old for over 17 years, and it's not until Hagas dies that his curse was able to be broken.
  • Locked into Strangeness: His hair was originally black, but somehow drastically turned white over the years he was locked up.
  • Power Nullifier: I WILL SING all of you superpowered invaders down to NORRRMAAAALLLL!!!!
  • Supernatural Sensitivity: He uses this to detect the seishis' power activity and if their power usage is near the defense territory, he deactivates their powers.

  • Alas, Poor Villain: If his parents and tribe weren't brutally killed in front of him he might have turned out normal
  • Being Tortured Makes You Evil
  • Darkand Troubled Past: Watching your family and clan be brutally slaughtered and then getting castrated does not equal a happy childhood

  • Evil Duo: Shigi and Hien are this
  • Evil Orphan
  • Eunuchs Are Evil

  • They Look Just Like Everyone Else: Takiko overhears Shigi and Hien discuss why they joined the Kutou Army and realizes they're child soldiers having to find a way to live by their own means.
  • Those Two Bad Guys
  • The Unfettered: After Prince Hakei rescued Shigi from a harem he became completely devoted to Hakei, his obsession with killing the Genbu Warriors initially begins because of his loyalty to Hakei and the Kutou army.
