Guilty Gear Isuka
Voiced by: Mika Takimoto
Paracelsus Voiced by: Toshimichi Mori
A homunculus created by the owner of a mansion called Frasco. He was an independent scientist attempting to plumb the secrets of creating life. The scientist was taken away by the government moments before her birth. A.B.A. was then left alone for ten years. Even though Frasco wasn't impossible to escape from, A.B.A. came to a nasty epiphany: she realized that her ignorance of the outside world would prevent her from surviving in it, and resigned herself to an isolated existence. To cope with the inevitable depression, A.B.A. began to collect keys; they represented a way to escape her lonely life into an exciting new world. While wandering the area around Frasco one day, she found a sentient relic called Flament Nagel. A.B.A. fell in love at first sight (as the Flament Nagel is shaped like a key) and renamed it Paracelsus. She decided to give it an artificial body like hers, and ventured out into the world looking for a way to do so.
The boss of Isuka. A large Gear controlled by a small man and his dog.
A group of thieves who appear in Isuka.
Guilty Gear Petit
The under-loved character who only appeared in Guilty Gear Petite 1 and 2, Fanny is a slightly airheaded weirdo who is trying her best to find Dr. Baldhead since she's a big fan of him. She's a nurse with a huge syringe, and a medical kit of oversized weapons. She's cute, she's rare-to-find, she's... never mentioned.
Guilty Gear Judgment
Voiced by: Takayuki Ideriha
The titular antagonist of Guilty Gear Judgment. Once a scientist named Raymond, he experiments on the people of Villtania to create a weapon stronger than the Gears. He eventually does this to himself by consuming the powers of Inus, the ruler of the Underworld, but much like a certain SNK Boss, gets consumed by his power and dies.
Guilty Gear: Dust Strikers
The boss of Dust Strikers.
Guilty Gear Vastedge
The apparent boss of the pachislot game Vastedge.
A crippled girl whom Ky befriended in the Lightning The Argent novel. She is saved by Ky and is currently under the protection of the IPF.
She is an experiment by the Blackard Corporation to create a command-type Gear. Solaria is saved by Ky and put into the custody of the IPF. She comes from the light-novel Lightning the Argent.
The 17-year-old President of "A Country", formerly the USA. She's few more than a pawn for the Assassins's Guild, and she knows it clearly: refusing to just take it, Erica decides to have an alliance with Zepp and becomes the target of the guild, which leads Chipp Zanuff to her. She comes from the novel "The Butterfly and her Gale."
Voiced by: Takayuki Sugo
Former Rebel Leader from Zepp, now the President of the country. Potemkin's superior, on whose orders he entered the first Sacred Tournament.
To be sorted
Raven is one of the mysterious allies of That Man. He is proficient in dimensional magic, and is also extremely sadomasochistic. He enjoys both causing and receiving pain immensely, even going so far as to charge headlong into attacks just for the stimulation. He and Axl Low cannot exist in the same dimension as one another, but they are not parallel existences of each other, so the reason for this has yet to be explained.
The 10th Memorial Book reveals that Raven is of German descent, and that he is a "natural immortal" due to a genetic anomaly. He was an accomplished warrior during the 12th century and took part in many battles of the Crusades. His first death occurred in an attempt to retake Jerusalem. The enemy had anticipated their moves and slaughtered all of his comrades, except him. Raven was shot with arrows and stabbed repeatedly, but instead of dying he found himself trapped within a strange cylindrical space surrounded by predatory birds. The sensation of their stares boring into him soon became the sensation of thousands of needles piercing his body.
And so Raven survived, continuing to linger on for 2,000 years. He grew bored with life, and one day drove a spike into his forehead out of despair. That spike remains bored through his skull to this day. That Man approached him not long afterward, and made him an offer to become "a witness to history". Raven had, at long last, found a purpose in his eternal life, and accepted That Man's offer.
The co-creator of the Gears along with Sol and a woman named Aria. Like Sol, he too feels remorse for creating them in the first place, but feels that he should manipulate things from the shadows. He has 2 servants to assist him in his mysterious goals: the time-traveler Raven, and I-no. He also has connections with several other characters, such as Baiken, Anji, and Axl Low, but mainly Sol & Justice. In XX, he appears after I-no is beaten by Sol, and renders her unconscious. An enraged Sol attacks, but That Man simply brushes it off and delivers a stunning blow to him. He states that Sol is necessary for the world's fate to be decided, but Sol doesn't buy it. Later, he is found by Anji who, as revealed in Accent Core + , decides to join him for the world's betterment (and to keep I-no on a leash). In Sol's bad ending, That Man chews him out, saying that he can exist outside of time through some means that have not been confirmed yet. He leaves a writhing, agonized Sol to his fate as he starts to burn away from existence.
In Overture he oversees the actions of Valentine while putting his own schemes in motion to prevent a "Merciless Apocalypse". He appears before Sol, who transforms into his true Gear form to do battle with him (his first appearance as a boss in the series). Later, he reveals to Sol that Valentine is a clone of Aria, who was "already killed", strongly hinting at the fact that Aria is, in fact, Justice. After Sol's departure, he talks with Raven about how Sol's Dragon Install is "corroding", and alludes that there may be more copies of Valentine out there.
Voiced by: Yumiko Ogawa (XX), Yukiko Kato (AC+), Tomomi Isomura (Xrd)
May's best friend in the Jellyfish Pirates.
Voiced by: Megumi Han
Slayer's immortal wife who is always seen to be accompanying him. Apparently, she isn't a vampire.
Voiced by: Hiroki Yasumoto
An amoral scientist who works for the PWAB. He has a connection with Johnny. He meddles with many of the characters by making Justice clones and having them fight. He is apparently a traitor to the Japanese people according to Anji, Baiken and Faust.
The Senato (Senate)
A group consisting of four masked sages, who are the supreme advisers to the Pope. The members of the Senato consist of Axus (I), Libraria (II), Bardius (III), and Chronus (IV).
It is revealed through supplemental materials that they are behind Ky's appointment as a Puppet King, holding the well-being of his wife and son as leverage to keep him on a leash. Their stated goal is to manipulate events in order to guide humanity to their desired future, which essentially equates to world domination, with them ruling as gods. Their influence is widespread, and it is slowly being revealed that they are, or could potentially be, involved with the backstories of much of the cast.
