    open/close all folders 

    HCLI 

Known to the public as H&C Logistics Incorporated, it is a multinational company that operates primarily in the shipping industry. Run by Floyd Hekmatyar, he has two children named Kaspar and Koko. Unknown to the public (except for governments, criminals and "other groups"), HCLI operates in the arms trafficking business in providing weapons and needed equipment to its clients, depending on their needs. For a short time, they assisted in the transportation of people into the Balkans. The company operates on various continents from Africa to Europe to most of Asia.

  • Mega Corp.: Known to be this in the public sphere, especially since it has a PMC and an aerospace division. HCLI has launched 126 navigation/communications satellites. For comparison, the American military GPS network has only 24 satellites.

Koko Hekmatyar

Voiced by: Marina Inoue (Drama CD), Shizuka Ito (Anime) (Japanese), Anastasia Munoz (English)

The main protagonist of Jormungand, Koko is a young woman who's a member of HCLI's Europe/Africa Shipping Division - aka, an arms dealer. She travels the world with her team of mercenary bodyguards, and while she's a shrewd negotiator and businesswoman, she can also be rather childish at times.
  • Ambiguously Bi: She may reciprocate Valmet's feelings for her, speaking of which, she's not shy about feeling Valmet in general, she also sounds interested when Dr. Miami tells her that Baburin is surprisingly well endowed. At the same time, she's an utter shotacon for Jonah.
  • Berserk Button: Trying to pay her in drugs. It's one of few, if not only, times Koko actually kills someone personally.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer
  • Byronic Hero: Fits all the common characteristics: Cunning and able to adapt; very attractive physically; has a lot of charisma, sophistication, and intelligence, as well as emotional sensitivity; cynical and jaded; mysterious Dark and Troubled Past; Disrespectful of rank and privilege (despite being very rich) and has a distaste for social institutions and norms (in this particular case, geopolitical ones); social isolation; is extremely passionate, with strong personal beliefs which conflict with the values of the status quo, and she views them as superior to others' beliefs; Emotionally conflicted and possibly bipolar; perceptive; world-weary; Mysterious, magnetic, and charismatic; rebellious; Self-critical and introspective; Sophisticated and educated; Struggling with integrity; Self-destructive (possibly); and is socially dominant (maybe sexually dominant but we never see her in a sexual relationship). Overall the only thing she lacks that keeps her from being a classical Byronic hero is a penis.
  • Cassandra Truth: Her objective really is world peace. Or at least it is in her mind.
  • Cat Smile: Koko's Cheshire Cat Grin occasionally morphs into this.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: Koko Hekmatyar's default facial expression, which is actually a sign that she'll still negotiate with you. When she loses the smile, you're screwed.
  • The Chessmaster
  • Cool Big Sis: To Jonah.
  • Creepy Blue Eyes: On occasions complete with Creepy Shadowed Undereyes and a Slasher Smile.
  • Cuddle Bug: Whenever she's around Jonah, Koko tends to hang off of him and just give him a little hug whenever she feels the urge. The same goes for Valmet, much to the former FRDF Major's delight.
  • Dark Messiah: When she reveals the details of Jormungand her rant comes off as more along the lines of seeing herself as trying to save the world rather than god like.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: She hits the bottle really hard for a while after Hex kills R.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Koko when she was in Britain briefly.
  • A God Am I: Subverted (or possibly zig-zagged). When Koko reveals the true extent of her machinations, a civilian researcher asks if she has a god complex. Koko responds by referring to a biblical event where God sent an angel to wipe out an army. She further states that God basically acts like a soldier and thus her plan makes her greater than God. In truth, while one may be apt to think that Koko desires to become a god, she has something more of a messianic complex, desiring to become some kind of twisted world savior. Either way, her megalomania is undeniable.
  • Guile Heroine: This is how she operates in Africa and Europe.
  • Heroic Albino: Koko, having bright-white hair and skin, but blue eyes, and being a arms dealer with her own private micro-army, qualifies for the Anti-Hero variant.
  • Hime Cut
  • Lady Drunk: Likes her liquor. A lot. Despite that, most of the time she's seen with some form of Brand X Cola. Ugo worries about it when she gets wine during a dinner with Chan, and in an omake chapter in the manga, this is poked at for fun.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: She often glomps Jonah and once climbs into Schokolade's restroom stall.
  • Omniglot: Koko can speak the major languages in Africa and Europe.
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • Slasher Smile: Occasionally her Cheshire Cat Grin morphs into this.
  • Stepford Smiler: Koko smiles all the time, as a means of disguising her true feelings.
  • Straw Nihilist: She thinks this world is so utterly lost that killing 700,000 people to achieve world peace is nothing in comparison to what's to come if the world continues like now.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Often seen drinking Coca Cola. Her reaction to a dinner invitation in episode 6 and reactions while eating in episode 7 suggests she also likes Chinese food but it's not brought up as often.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: To her brother Kasper.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She aims to achieve world peace by using the Jormungand system to control the entire world's logistics, starting with shooting down every aircraft currently in the sky, which would result in the deaths of nearly 700,000 people.
  • White Hair, Black Heart
  • Woman Child: Capable of being businesslike one moment... and then rolling back and forth on the table, crying childishly, before morphing back into business mode.
  • Woman in White: Which, along with her near-total albinism, makes her one of the whitest character designs ever.

Jonah, aka Jonathan Mark/Mar

Voiced by: Mie Sonozaki (Drama CD), Mutsumi Tamura (Anime) (Japanese), Micah Solusod (English)

The Deuteragonist, Jonah is a Child Soldier from West Asia recruited by Koko to join her team, which causes a certain unease in the team as many of Koko's bodyguards have been on the opposing sides of child soldiers. Hates guns and arms dealers, and ironically is working for an arms dealer. As time goes by, he's becoming something of a mascot/surrogate younger brother to Koko's team.
  • Adorkable
  • Afraid of Needles: They reason why he wouldn't take the operation to have the bullet from his buttcheek removed. At least not until episode 21..
  • An Odd Place to Sleep: Sleeps curled up in a corner with a weapon close at hand.
  • Badass Adorable: He once wiped out a team of adult soldiers all by himself, before being subdued by Chiquita.
  • Book Dumb: When it comes to math, science, and other educational matters, Jonah is hopeless. It isn't really his fault, as being a Child Soldier meant he never had a chance to go to school. Of course, he's not particllary interested in getting an education either. Koko and her team are trying to home school him, though to their exasperation as he frequently finds ways to sneak out of the lessons.
    • It's mostly the math stuff he has trouble with. He's actually pretty good with language and history; even gone as far to express a fondness for reading.
  • Chick Magnet: He's a kid who doesn't think of girls "that" way (yet), but he already has them lining up. Koko is the most obvious, since she gropes and hangs all over him every chance she gets, going as far as to sneak into his bath, stark naked, and surprise him for more groping. Valmet swings the other way but is very maternally affectionate towards him. Especially when he helps her get revenge on her former unit's killer. This trope may have inadvertently saved his life as Chinatsu prevents her partner from firing on him despite having a clear shot, stating that it would be a shame to kill someone so cute.
  • Child Soldier
  • Crying Wolf: See I Need to Go Iron My Dog.
  • Dark and Troubled Past
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: White-haired variation.
  • Emotionless Boy
  • I Need to Go Iron My Dog: When he's having subjects in his "home"-schooling by Koko's crew he doesn't like (mostly anything to do with math), he's off to the loo. He used that excuse very often, now they don't believe him even if he has to go for real.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Jonah's a skilled guerrilla warrior, but he has a tendacy to employ what Lehm describes as "All-or-Nothing" tactics, such as charging head-on into enemy fire. Lehm is working on getting it out of him.
  • Mathematician's Answer: Fittingly, this is his frequent response to math questions.
    Jonah: [That plane] has a lot of wheels.
    Valmet: 22 to be exact. So how many wheels would three planes have?
    Lehm: (Uh... why's he taking so long?)
    (Still no response from Jonah... until finally):
    Jonah: A lot.
    (Everyone Face Faults)
  • Morality Pet: Koko recruited Jonah for this purpose. She has big plans and needs someone who is loyal but will keep her from becoming a monster, according to R.
  • The Quiet One: A boy of few words.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • The Sneaky Guy: Jonah was a Mountain guerrilla before he began working for HCLI, so he's very good at hiding and using the terrain to his advantage. He's also pretty sneaky when it comes to dodging his home-schooling sessions (to the amusement/annoyance of the rest of the crew, who quickly learned that it's darn near impossible to locate Jonah if he doesn't want to be found).
  • The Stoic
    • Not So Stoic: He's the opposite of Koko; he keeps a stoic mask on around her, but can also laugh and be a kid, which is prominently seen early in Episode 9.
  • The Watson: Jonah plays this role, allowing Koko to explain her paradigm.

Lehm Brick

Voiced by: Unshō Ishizuka (Japanese), Christopher Corey Smith (English)

The oldest member of the team and an ex-Delta Force operator, Lehm is the unofficial and de facto leader of Koko's bodyguards. He has excellent tactical planning and his leadership is unquestioned, and he's the Cold Sniper of the team. Prior to the start of the series, Lehm was married to Chiquita, the leader of Kasper's bodyguards.
  • Battle Couple: Used to be part of one with Chiquita, way back when they were Floyd Hekmatyar's bodyguards.
  • Cold Sniper: Lehm's primary role, though he's also a good marksman with pistol and assault rifle. Interestingly, he's cold when on the scope; when he's not sniping, he's a rather approachable person.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Lehm's guiding principle. He doesn't believe in fighting on the enemy's terms.
  • Majorly Awesome: Was formerly a Major in the US Army, before quitting to work for Floyd Hekmatyar.
  • Old Soldier: Oldest member of Koko's bodyguards, and pretty much the leader figure among them.
  • Perpetual Smiler: His default expression is a friendly, easygoing smile.
  • Sergeant Rock: What his role is, more or less. (Despite having being a Captain in Delta.)
  • Would Hit a Girl: As the Orchestra arc shows, Lehm has no problems with shooting anyone who's a threat.
  • Yanks with Tanks: Was a former Delta Force operator, and saw action in both the First Gulf War and Somalia in the early 1990s, amongst other places.

Valmet, aka Major Sofia Velmer

Voiced by: Ayumi Fujimura (Drama CD), Sayaka Ohara (Anime) (Japanese), Carli Mosier (English)

A former Finnish Army officer with the Finnish Rapid Deployment Force, Valmet is the group's CQC expert. A good shot with a rifle, but CQC is where she really shines: Valmet is considered unbeatable when it comes to knife fighting.

Akihiko Tojo

Voiced by: Kazuyuki Okitsu (Drama CD), Hitoshi Yanai (Anime) (Japanese), Christopher Bevins (English)

A former JGSDF soldier with the Ministry of Defense's black ops unit called SR Team. Tojo was originally recruited to HCLI by Kasper, before joining Koko's team. Serves as a communications and intel specialist.

R, aka Reonard Socchi

Voiced by: Tomoyuki Higuchi (Drama CD), Katsuyuki Konishi (Anime) (Japanese), Ian Sinclair (English)

A former Italian Army Bersaglieri soldier and a veteran of the Bosnian Wars, R appears to be both a communications/intelligence specialist and shooter.
  • The Casanova: Claims to have a woman in every port and makes a pass at Valmet during some downtime... Only for her to kick him hard enough to send him skipping across the water like a rock for touching her boobs "by accident."
  • Eye Scream/Cross Counter: He and Hex shoot each other in the eye..
  • The Mole: R has been working for a CIA agent codenamed Bookman since the Bosnian wars.
  • New Roman Legions: Formerly a member of the Bersaglieri, a mechanized light infantry corps of the Italian Army.
  • Redemption Equals Death: Subverted, Koko forgave him and was willing to ignore his connections with Bookman, but he chose to cover her escape. If only he'd lasted for another minute...

Wilee, aka William Nelson

Voiced by: Kazuhisa Tanaka (Drama CD), Kenji Nomura (Anime) (Japanese), Akron Watson (English)

A bespectacled former soldier with the US Army's 20th Engineer Brigade of the XVIII Airborne Corps and veteran of the First Gulf War, Wilee serves as a commo specialist and as a spotter for Lutz. He also specializes in demolition. Also, one of two team members on the FBI's blacklist, meaning he can't enter the United States (the other being Koko).
  • Badass Bookworm: One of the most educated and erudite of Koko's men, often seen to be reading a book during his downtime. Is about as badass as what you might expect from someone in Koko's employ.
  • Beat Them at Their Own Game: He loves rewiring bombs in order to turn the tables on the bombers.
  • Mad Bomber: Gets a little too happy when he's around bombs.
  • Yanks with Tanks: Was an Airborne combat engineer during the First Gulf War, where Lehm shanghaied him for a Delta mission. After the war, he passed Selection and joined Delta.

Lutz

Voiced by: Takuya Eguchi (Drama CD), Wataru Hatano (Anime) (Japanese), Greg Ayres (English)

Formerly a sniper for a police SWAT Team, Lutz is the Friendly Sniper to Lehm's Cold Sniper.
  • Butt Monkey: Of perhaps the most literal variety. Has been both shot and stabbed in the ass.
  • Friendly Sniper: Well, compared to Lehm, anyhow.
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl: Hesitates to fire on Chinatsu and tries to disable her weapons; he's partially successful. He goes through a bit of angst on whether he did the right thing. Justified in that his whole paradigm as a police SWAT Team sniper was on taking out criminals and terrorists, not teenaged girls.
    Lutz Am I a failure 'cause I couldn't shoot a little girl? I was trained for sniping thugs who have their guns pointed at hostages or terrorists who got their finger on a bomb switch... Nobody ever trained me to shoot kids.

Ugo

Voiced by: Yuki Ono (Drama CD), Kiyoshi Katsunuma (Anime) (Japanese), Cris George (English)

Formerly a driver for a mafia group, Ugo serves as the resident Badass Driver. He's also quite attached to the cars he drives.
  • Badass Driver: This is his role.
  • Everyone Has Standards: The fact he was visibly upset at the idea of paying for a transaction with drugs is the only reason Koko lets him live when she has everyone else involved in the transaction killed.
  • Gentle Giant: A really nice guy and he's also the largest member of the team.






Mao

Voiced by: Hidenori Takahashi (Drama CD), Go Shinomiya (Anime) (Japanese), Patrick Seitz (English)

Formerly a soldier with an Asian army (so far not stated), Mao was the Sole Survivor of an accident that wiped out his artillery unit. Primarily serves as a shooter, though the Dragon Shooter arc proved he still knows his stuff.
  • The Everyman: He's basically the closest thing to plain vanilla normal in Koko's crew.
  • Fatal Family Photo: Averted; not only does he survive after showing it to Jonah, he actually gets a brief moment to shine.

Kasper Hekmatyar

Voiced by: Masaya Matsukaze (Japanese), Eric Vale (English)

Koko's elder brother, who likes teasing her. At the same time he also seems to care deeply about her; a number of Koko's bodyguards (particularly Jonah) were recruited by Kasper and sent to Koko. He is officially the head of HCLI's Asia-Pacific division.

Chiquita

Voiced by: Yumi Touma (Japanese), Clarine Harp (English)

Kasper's right hand woman, and the leader of his team - who, in comparison to Koko's crew - appear more like a conventional special forces team. Prior to the start of the series, Chiquita used to be married to Lehm. And then they got a divorce.
  • Battle Couple: Used to be part of one with Lehm, way back when they were Floyd Hekmatyar's bodyguards.
  • Boobs of Steel
  • Knife Nut: Damn good with a knife; she slaughters an SR fireteam in close quarters armed with only her combat knife.
  • Perpetual Smiler
  • The Nicknamer: When she first meets Jonah, Chiquita christens him "мишка" (Mishka; Russian for "bear cub," or "funny little bear") for his ferocity. She also refers to Lehm as "Old Man" from time to time.

Floyd Hekmatyar

Little is known about him, except that he's known in the business world for heading HCLI. Floyd is also the father of Kasper and Koko, and Lehm and Chiquita were formerly his bodyguards before they left to lead the bodyguard teams for his children.
  • The Chessmaster: Appears to have shades of this; the Dragon Shooter arc was orchestrated by him to curry favor with both Outspoken Doctors for Human Rights and the CIA, which succeeded quite well.
  • The Ghost: While he's brought up in conversation a lot, Floyd himself never makes a proper appearance in the story.

    CCAT 

Known to the public as Curry's Company Aerial Transport, it operates directly from Britain as a transportation company. It's also known to be an arms dealing company and is a rival of HCLI in the business, to the point that they won't mind getting on top of each other if it suits their interests.

Mr. Curry

Voiced by: Katsuhisa Houki (Japanese), Kent Williams (English)

President and owner of CCAT, and a rival of sorts to HCLI.

Mildo

Voiced by: Ayumi Tsunematsu (Japanese), Caitlin Glass (English)

A woman who likes knives. A lot. Far too many knives to be sane. And considers herself a rival to Valmet.

Lou

Voiced by: Manabu Sakamaki (Japanese), Jeremy Inman (English)

The Only Sane Man (more or less) of the CCAT trio.
  • Achey Scars: He's got one on his cheek. But the series doesn't say how he got it.
  • The Stoic: Most of the time. He doesn't have problems interacting, especially with his HCLI rivals.

    CIA 

The Central Intelligence Agency is an external intelligence agency based out of Langley, Virginia in the United States of America. The division involved in the series is the National Clandestine Servicenote , of which George Black is the head of the European Desk.

Scarecrow

Voiced by: Yuki Ono (Drama CD), Tooru Nara (Anime) (Japanese), Robert McCollum (English)

A loudmouthed and uncouth CIA agent, who is chasing Koko so that he can take over her operation and divert her earnings to the CIA.
  • Jerkass: Known to be one publicly.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: In the Dubai arc he gives his name as Jerry Schatzberg, an award winning director who made a movie called Scarecrow.
  • Overt Operative: Introduces himself as working for the CIA while in Dubai.
  • Perpetual Smiler: His smile is a lot different from Koko's; it makes him look like a puffed-up self-important jerk who knows nothing, compared to Koko's knowing smile.

Schokolade

Voiced by: Ami Koshimizu (Japanese), Brittney Karbowski (English)

One of the CIA's assets based in South Africa.
  • Adorkable: A communications and electronics specialist, but very cute and bubbly.
  • Big Eater: By implication at least. Often seen trying out the local cuisine in decent sized portions.

  • Peek-a-Bangs
  • Verbal Tic: ends most of her sentences with "-ssu"

Bookman, aka George Black

Voiced by: Tsutomu Isobe (Japanese), Mark Stoddard (English)

Hex and R's superior and creator of Operation Undershaft in an effort to "tame" Koko. He's Chief of the National Clandestine Service's European Desk.
  • Big Eater: You can see that he can eat a lot. Which makes his wife worry about his eating habits.
  • The Chessmaster: Behaves like this; he's got many plans and assets reporting to him, and is running a plan called Operation Undershaft.
  • Code Name: Has a lot of them. He's also known as Burattinaio and Saw, along with many others.
  • Gamebreaking Injury: Suffered a severe back injury in a helicopter crash just after commissioning as a 2nd Lieutenant in the US Marine Corps; this killed his military career, and led to him eventually joining the CIA.
  • Pet the Dog: Evacuates a family R had been staying with before they were killed by Serbs for helping the UN.
  • Rank Up: After the timeskip, he becomes the CIA's Director of Clandestine Services.
  • Semper Fi: Was a Marine for a few short months before his Gamebreaking Injury.

Hex

Voiced by: Aya Hisakawa (Japanese), Jamie Marchi (English)

A radical patriot and ex-member of the Wide Range Communications Platoon, which was suppose to be a planned all-women Special Forces unit, until she was recruited by Bookman to tame Koko after high dropouts from special forces training and opposition to consider women in special forces missions forced the US Army to disband the unit. Had seen action as an operator with the Special Activities Division prior to being recruited as part of Operation Undershaft.
  • Arch-Enemy: Of Koko. Hex has gone after Koko and her group before and killed Echo, one of Koko's team. And then came very close to kidnapping Jonah and assasinating Koko, and she killed R.
  • The Baroness
  • Better to Die Than Be Killed: Shoots herself rather just before she's hit by the better part of a B-52's payload.
  • The Dragon: Bookman's left hand woman in Operation Undershaft. R is the right hand.
  • The Lost Lenore: Her fiance died in the 9/11 attacks when she was stationed in Afghanistan. Her later radical methods caused her to be discharged.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: She's been on this ever since 9/11.
  • She Who Fights Monsters: Is on a vindictive and destructive streak against terrorists. Her brutal methods make her no different or perhaps even worse.
  • The War on Terror: Had served in Afghanistan as a SAD operative hunting down Al-Qaeda terrorists. She was also serving in Eastern Europe leading a SAD team to hunt down Koko and kill her.
  • Would Hurt a Child: She would do this to Jonah, especially since he's associated with Koko. She would do the same to Koko if Echo didn't try to stop her.

    Daxinghai Company 

Daxinghai is a Chinese multinational company that operates out of the African continent, with most of its dealing done on behalf of the People's Liberation Army. Most of its personnel are African and Chinese.

Chan Guoming

Voiced by: Takaya Hashi (Japanese), Jerry Russell (English)

Formerly a Major in the People's Liberation Army Ground Force, Chan is running Daxinghai as a PLA-allied company to counter the influence of HCLI.
  • Handicapped Badass: Chan's leg was injured when he stepped on a landmine, which caused him to lose the ability to run and become:
  • Retired Badass: Chan is the man responsible for wiping out a FRDF patrol on a UN peacekeeping mission in Africa, killing Valmet's subordinates and her career. When he first appears, he's retired from the PLA and is running Daxinghai.
  • Younger Than He Looks: He appears to be elderly, but is actually in his early fifties; the shock of being unable to run anymore caused him to age rapidly.

Karen Lo/Low

Voiced by: Saori Kato (Japanese), Shelley Calene-Black (English)

Chan's Sexy Secretary and Hypercompetent Sidekick, who can actually give Valmet a run for her money. She's formerly an officer in the PLA with the rank of 1st Lieutenant. Following the death of Chen Guoming, Karen is currently employed by Dr. Amada to serve as her official bodyguard and secretary alongside Mokoena.
  • Chinese with Chopper Support: Karen had previously served in the PLA Ground Force with the rank of 1st Lieutenant.
  • Foil: To Valmet. She fights with a similar gunkata style and swears revenge for her defeat and the deaths of her subordinates. Valmet notes that she's exactly how she used to be ages ago.
  • Irony: Considering that she was employed by the very woman she was assigned to kidnap for China.
  • Sexy Secretary: How she initially appears.
  • Stocking Filler: Wears garter stockings.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Chan. Even though she's treated like crap after she fails to secure Minami Amada and destroy Koko's team, she still respects Chan and is utterly loyal to him. When Valmet succeeds in killing Chan, she tries to avenge him, but is foiled thanks to Jonah.

    Orchestra 

A known criminal/terrorist group that does assassinations, it was originally made up of 8 members. Over the years, most of its members were killed by engaging in shootouts with police forces. The group was destroyed after its last two members were killed by Koko's team in the United Arab Emirates.

Maestro

Voiced by: Hisao Egawa (Drama CD), Tsuyoshi Koyama (Anime) (Japanese), Christopher Sabat (English)

One of the two surviving members of Orchestra.

Chinatsu

Voiced by: Ai Shimizu (Drama CD), Akemi Kanda (Anime) (Japanese), Lindsay Seidel (English)

Maestro's protege.
  • Cute But Psycho: Indeed.
  • Dies Wide Open
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Chinatsu used to be a normal schoolgirl. Now she's an assassin with spider sense.
  • Going Commando: Justified. She never wears panties when going into battle. On her first job, she'd gotten soaked and secretly taken them off and soon realized that her aim was better without them. The one time she's wearing panties onscreen, her spider sense is sufficiently muddled that she can't pick up Lehm.
  • Nice Hat
  • Stockholm Syndrome: Appears to have this towards Maestro.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: After Koko tried to get Chinatsu to join up with her, but was killed by Lehm after attempting to assassinate Koko for killing her master.

     Boss Dominic's Crew 

A trio of hitmen working out of a camper van somewhere in North Africa, hired to assassinate Koko and her crew. Hex put them up to it.

Boss Dominic

Voiced by: Keiji Fujiwara (Japanese), David Wald (English)

The leader of the crew, and clearly the oldest member of them. Dominic wants to get this job over with, and is seriously considering retirement.
  • Only Sane Man: He feels he's this towards his crew, who tend to enjoy their work a bit too much.

Grégoire

Voiced by: Yoshihiro Koyanagi (Japanese), Jeremy Inman (English)

A large man, face perpetually hidded by a digital camoflage balaclava. Grégoire is the melee combatant of Boss Dominic's crew.

Lilianne

Voiced by: Kana Asumi (Japanese), Lara Woodhull (English)

A youngish girl who's the last member of Dominic's crew. Very fast and agile.

    Civilians 

Minami "Miami" Amada

Voiced by: Megumi Toyoguchi (Japanese), Gwendolyn Lau (English)

A Japanese scientist working for Märchen in South Africa and the best friend of Koko Hekmatyar. Prior to getting into the field of robotics, Minami had previously studied at the Imperial College London (under the Faculty of Engineering) and at Caltech.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Highly respected Roboticist, but tends to act like a child at times.
    • Also has an unhealthy obsession for butterflies. She is willing to hike across snow over mountain just to see a rare poisonous butterfly.
    Valmet: You think she spends all her time chasing after butterflies?
    Koko: Probably so. She does have an abnormal obsession with them. She's an officer in some worldwide butterfly group apparently.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Has a tendency to blow off prior arrangements in favor of going looking for things like butterflies and seashells like they're the most important thing in the universe, if her assistant tries to keep her in line...
    Koko: I was ditched for shellfish?
  • Humans Are Bastards: What she thinks of countries (and their militaries) that try to take advantage of her robotics research for military purposes.
    Minami: It doesn't bother me if people want to take my research and use it to make weapons to kill other people. That's just fine. I'm a lot more concerned about the butterfly's continued survival. They're the ones in danger. How many billions of humans are there in the world? Too many. We're overpopulated.
  • Just Between You and Me: Apparently has something going on with Koko. Their plan is named Jormungand
  • Meaningful Name: Minami means "South" in Japanese, which is significant since she's based in South Africa after she studied robotics.
  • Meganekko
  • Woman Child: Like her friend Koko, she's got a habit of rolling back and forth on the ground crying when she's not getting her way.

Mokoena

Voiced by: Takahiro Fujiwara (Japanese), Chris Rager (English)

Minami's assistant. He tries to make sure she doesn't wander off to go after butterflies or other types of animals, but he ends up following her in the end. Before Karen was employed by Minami, he used to do bodyguard duties aside from being her assistant.
  • Bodyguard Crush: Averted. He gets really worried when the good doctor goes somewhere that her safety is questionable.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: His main job to make sure Minami doesn't go wandering off.
    Mokoena: (After he finds out that Minami wants to get a butterfly and plans to ditch her meeting with Koko) I came by to make sure you were not serious [about going to the mountains]. But I was wrong.
  • Gentle Giant: Mokoena's really a nice guy, even though he's capable of handling small arms.
  • Sweat Drop: Gets into this due to his boss' unbelievable actions that he's forced to follow her.

    SR Team 

Known somewhat "officially" as the Special Research Team of the Ministry of Defense, Defense Intelligence Headquarters, Joint Staff 2nd Division. The SR Team was Tojo's former workplace and is a black ops team of the DIH specializing in intelligence gathering and covert action. It was formed during the Vietnam War to provide intelligence support in places the Americans could not go publicly. Based out of Jakarta, Indonesia, SR uses the Ganville Trading Company as its front, and is engaged in a profitable (and illegal) side business of actual arms dealing in Southeast Asia, which sets them against Kaspar's HCLI Asia-Pacific division. One of their recent actions is with the Iranian nuclear program controversy, as SR provided the Iranians with needed material while conducting espionage in Iran at the same time.

The entire unit was defeated in Jakarta and Tokyo thanks to Koko and Kaspar's efforts, which was done thanks to Col. Hinoki's orders to start a fight against them.
  • Becoming the Mask: Due to a lack of funds, SR was forced to use their front company to conduct arms dealing to stay afloat and build contacts. By the time Hinoki came onboard, Ganville Trading Company is a highly successful trading company in its own right, with SR being financially independent of the Japanese government's black budget, to the government's chagrin.
  • Death Faked for You: All SR operatives are officially listed as deceased.
  • Elites Are More Glamorous: Given that they're a DIH black ops team.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Totally don't understand Tojo at all.
  • Kaiju Defense Force: SR is ostensibly under the oversight of the Ministry of Defense, and the bulk of its operatives come from the JGSDF.
