Fam Fan Fan
- The Ace: Subverted in the ending, she comes out fourth in the Grand Race, and third after Dio get's disqualified for unknown reasons.
- Boring Conveniently-Lucky Heroine: For most of the first half of the series things mostly seem to go Fam's way (particulary in the Skyship Hunt), even when all logic suggest that they shouldn't.
- Badass Adorable: She's a jolly somewhat cocky Cloudcuckoolander but she's one hell of a pirate.
- Brutal Honesty: Fam seems to be utterly incapable of lying and is completely devoid of tact. Her jibes at Atamora aside, in one instance we see her, over the span of a few minutes, pretty much call the Turanian refugees in Ades hypocrites, comment on the general shabbiness of the Ades palace and overreact to Sara Augusta being a little girl.
- Generation Xerox: Is a spitting image of her mother Raha.
- Green Eyes: Notable in that it's shared by only one other living character in-series, General Sadri of the Ades Federation.
- The Hero: Arguable. See Supporting Protagonist entry below.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Giselle.
- Idiot Hero: Let's be honest, Fam isn't really all that bright.
- The Kirk
- Memento MacGuffin: Fam's medal, embossed with what looks like the symbol of the Guild, hinting at her noble heritage.
- In the final episode, she receives Sadri's locket.
- Parental Abandonment: Apparently. She was the sole survivor of a crashed vanship discovered by people from Kartoffel.
- Plucky Girl: Nothing seems to keep Fam down for long. YMMV of course, but some viewers dislike her for this, as her constant optimism seems unrealistic and out of place given the seriousness of the conflict the setting is engulfed in.
- Sky Pirate: Obviously.
- Sleepwalking: One of Fam's bad habits. She has to have her leg tied down to ensure she doesn't fall out of either a vanship or her room, and there's an extra bed under the ladder to her room to cushion the impact.
- Supporting Protagonist: While Fam is the titular character, it can be interpreted that Silver Wing is really Milia's story, told from Fam's perspective.
- Static Character: For nearly the entirety of the series' run, Fam stays idealistic and hopelessly naive. Nineteen episodes pass (and two episodes before the end of the series at that) before she finally realizes that she's been insensitive to the feelings and wishes of the people around her and, what's more, was thoughtlessly pushing her own dreams unto other people.
Giselle Collette Vingt
- Break the Cutie: The skyship hunt she and Fam were hired for noticeably takes its toll mentally and emotionally on Giselle.
- Hair Decorations
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Fam. Her VA has even referred to her as Fam's "wife".
- Hyper Awareness: Displays a bizarre example of this when she realizes that the Grand Exile shares the same layout of the Ades battleship Impetus, but on a much larger scale. Take note this is the first time anyone has infiltrated it aside from Luscinia.
- In-Series Nickname: "Gisey" in the Japanese version and "Gigi" in the English dub.
- Shrinking Violet
- Photographic Memory: Apparently she knows all named skyships designed in the last century, down to their floor plans, as well as the names of their most recent crew and commanders.
- The Spock
- Sky Pirate
- Tareme Eyes
- Wrench Wench
Princess Milia il Velch Cutrettola Turanand — more recently — the Silvius, though she hopes to someday return to rebuild her homeland.
- Character Development: Milia has come a long way from the spoiled and bratty princess she was at the start of the series. Contrasts neatly with Fam, who's remained mostly the same since then.
- The Captain: Is given temporary command of the Silvius, as Tatiana and Alister sortie in their vanship again during the climax.
- Hair Decorations
- The Heroine: Although it is Fam with her name in the title, Silver Wing is mostly about Milia. Fam is just along for the ride (for now).
- Everything's Better with Princesses
- Expository Hairstyle Change
- Kingdom In Exile: Sets up the temporary Kingdom of Turan... by taking over several rooms in the Silvius.
- She demanded the canteen and three rooms - but she only got a table (marked off with tape and adorned with the Turan flag), and possibly whatever room(s) they sleep in.
- Rebel Leader: With the death of Vasant she virtually becomes this, and takes command of the Alliance forces for the final showdown with Luscinia. Even more senior generals like Ōrang follow her lead.
- Rousing Speech: Gives a very good one before the Alliance forces confront Luscinia's Grand Exile and his allies.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Connected to the Kingdom In Exile entry above, Milia has spent most of the series gathering support to strike against Luscinia, and at one point takes command of the Turanian segment of the Alliance forces during the battle of Boreas in Sadri's old flagship. She's also read up on the functions of the Silvius enough that she is given temporary command of the ship for the final battle against the Grand Exile.
- Slightly-Pointy Ears: Not really commented on in-series, but they make her stand out compared to Fam and Giselle. Not surprising as being a noble implies she is of Guild descent. Further proven by being born of a family of Exile Keys, which is a guild exclusive ability.
- Royal Brat: In the beginning.
- Theme Naming: Cutrettola means Wagtail in Italian.
The Ades Federation
Premier Luscinia Hāfez
Voiced by: Kazuyuki Okitsu/Chiwa Saito (young) (Japanese), Duncan Brannan (English)The premier of the Ades Federation, and the prosecutor of its current aggressive policies against its neighbors. Although Luscinia seems to have an admirable goal behind the conflict his homeland is instigating — to take back the lands lost to the Exile returnees for their original owners — one can't help but wonder if there are other, more personal reasons behind this. Quite surprisingly, he does not.
- Anti-Villain: Big time.
- Battle Butler: In the past as part of a guildsman bodyguard pair to the previous Augusta with Alauda as his "twin". Currently he is acting as one to the current Augusta with Alauda acting as his back up.
- Big Bad: Since he does most of the work and he is doing this more for his former empress instead of following the current Augusta's orders.
- Death Seeker
- Evil Chancellor: His In-Universe reputation among some Federation aristocrats and citizens. In truth he's just more of a Knight Templarish Well-Intentioned Extremist. Yet..
- The Good Chancellor: He's also well loved and respected by the citizens for being a great statesman and helping the nation selflessly.
- Eyepatch of Power: After losing his eye during the assassination during the Grand Race.
- Going Down with the Ship: He stays behind in the collapsing remains of the Grand Exile.
- Inexplicably Identical Individuals: Looked surprisingly like Dio in his youth, to the point that a lot of fans thought that it was Dio BSODing in the opening animation, while it was actually him freaking out in a his old guild uniform.
- Knight Templar: After Farahnāz's assassination at the Grand Race.
- Memento MacGuffin: He wears a rosary bracelet just like Empress Farahnāz. Possibly the very same one.
- No Place for Me There: He chooses to die on the Grand Exile rather than be rescued by Fam and Giselle since his war has finally united the people of Earth, the world that Sara deserves to rule in peace.
- Not So Stoic: He snaps something awful when Empress Farahnāz was killed protecting Liliana.
- Persona Non Grata: From the end of episode 14 onwards.
- Pointy Ears: While it's a trait common to people in Ades Luscinia is a much purer example since he and Alauda have the most Guild-like designs, hinting at them being former bodyguard type Guildsmen since they only come in pairs or "Twins".
- Redemption Equals Death
- The Stoic: Even more so than Alex Rowe from the original series (who only snapped once) sometimes and seems to be a common trait among anyone connected to the Guild.
- Theme Naming: Luscinia is named after a genera of birds, specifically the one that includes nightingales.
- Used To Be A Stoic Yet Sweet Kid: Despite having difficulty in expressing emotions in his youth, he was very loyal to Farahnāz and was kind to Liliana. He still shows traces of this to those he respects (including his enemies) and those he loves so much, in particular Liliana, Augusta, and by the conclusion Fam.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: He aims to fulfill the Empress Farahnāz' goal of establishing the world peace, but apparently after her assassination he uses much, much harsher means.
- It looks like that event convinced him that it's impossible to peacefully integrate the Natives and the Exiles, so he proceeded to do so by force.
- White Hair, Black Heart: As the Big Bad and highlighting his Guild-based nature.
- A Child Shall Lead Them: Luscinia may be her Prime Minister and regent, but she's still the monarch.
- Break the Cutie: Poor Sārā is not taking the fact that her generals, each of whom she is fond of on some level, are forced to fight against each other.
- In general, she suffers from this a lot.
- Hair Decorations
- Facial Markings
- Fan Nickname: Quite unflattering (and unfair) "Loli Hitler", given that Ades is often interpreted just as a bunch of Sky Nazis. Though it was mostly forgotten in the second half of the series.
- Parental Abandonment: Her father's whereabouts are yet to be specified. Her mother was assassinated.
- Pointy Ears: Much like many people in Ades, though in Sārā's case it might be a clue who her father is and proof of her nobility, since most are of guild descent. It turns out that, like Liliana and Alvis, she not only has Guild blood in her but she is in fact the Key to the Grand Exile.
Voiced by: Katsuyuki Konishi (Japanese), Brian Mathis (English)The commander of Ades' 2nd Fleet, General Kayvan is a big bear of a man whose gentleness with children, particularly his monarch Augusta Sara, belies his gruff exterior. While seemingly not that imaginative a commander, at least when compared with younger peers Ōrang or Sorūsh, he makes up for it through determination and bravery.
- Friend to All Children: Sārā seems to be very fond of him, and in the past he was able to calm down two groups (Natives and Exiles) of bickering kids.
- Gentle Giant: To Sārā as she enjoys riding on his shoulder.
- Interrupted Suicide: As shown in episode 11, he almost committed Seppuku in wake of the assassination on Farahnāz. Ōrang and Sorūsh had to hold him down to prevent him from going through with it.
- My Country, Right or Wrong
- Unexplained Recovery: More ridiculous compared to Sorūsh's. Against all logic, General Kayvan seems to have survived the annihilation of his fleet by the Grand Exile.
- Actor Allusion: A brilliant strategist who hates losing. That sounds familiar.
- Big Eater
- Freak Out!: After witnessing the power of the Grand Exile.
- Heel–Face Turn: Unable to go against his own principles, he finally turns his fleet's guns on Sorūsh's ships, and sides with Vasant's alliance.
- Heroic B.S.O.D.: A brief one, when he witnesses the full power of the Grand Exile turned on his fleet.
- Heterosexual Life-Partner: To Sorūsh.
- Manly Tears: After hearing that Empress Sara has been successfully rescued.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: At first glance the Blue to Sorūsh's Red, but as Sorūsh himself comments Ōrang is actually the more passionate and principled of the two friends.
- Straight Man
- The Strategist: And he times his tactics down to the minute too.
- The Casanova: An unapologetic womanizer, much to Ōrang's dismay. Episode 11 shows that he was like this even as a cadet.
- Heterosexual Life-Partner: To Ōrang.
- Heel–Face Turn: After his surprise return.
- Honor Before Reason: He continues on with his attack on Vasant's flagship, despite knowing that Augusta Sārā was on it and it would likely alienate his closest ally and best friend Ōrang.
- Keep the Reward: In the finale, he was in line for the Premier position, but turns it down and goes off somewhere else. The position is given to Ōrang instead.
- Law of Chromatic Superiority: Sorūsh's red-themed fleet of ships seems to be faster than all the other ships that the Ades Federation has under its disposal. Indeed his flagship the Serapati is called the fastest warship of its airborne navy.
- The Red Baron: Godspeed Sorūsh.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Seemingly the Red Oni to Ōrang's Blue, but the latter points out that Sorūsh is much more logical and, as later events show, brutally pragmatic than he is.
Voiced by: Takaya Hashi (Japanese), R Bruce Elliott (English)The commander of the Ades Federation's 1st Fleet, General Sadri has been kept busy lately trying to track down and capture, if possible, the elusive ghost ship Silvius. It was through his quiet support that Luscinia was able to rise to his current place of power, of which the Premier is thankful to the elder general for.
- Badass Grandpa: He's definitely the oldest of the Ades generals, and seems to be more than a fine strategist, seeing as how he was able to corner the Sylvius (and it may not be the first time).
- Cool Old Guy
- Going Down with the Ship: Elects to stay in the wreck of the Anshar, while letting his crew escape.
- Green Eyes: And having them has a surprising implication as well.
- Know When to Fold 'Em
- The Men First: He's entirely willing to lose a modern battleship but save its crew. The fact that these men are skilled and well trained and are going to save their experience for the Federation is a welcome addition.
- My Country, Right or Wrong: Fully supports Luscinia in his plan, as he believes it's the best way for the world to gain peace.
- Reasonable Authority Figure
- The Strategist: Showcased wonderfully in the attack on Boreas where he sows confusion in the Alliance's ranks, which actually causes the Glacies contingent to attack their allies, the Ades 3rd Fleet.
- We Have Reserves: Totally and utterly averted. He cares and values his men, and much prefer them over the materiel. Even if it was altruistic (as mentioned, saving the crew saves the trouble of training a new one), it was still better than the alternative.
- You Remind Me of X: Fam reminds Sadri of his daughter Raha. Not surprising, since Fam is Raha's daughter.
Voiced by: Fumiko Orikasa (Japanese), Gwendolyn Lau (English)Ostensibly the commander of Ades 5th Fleet, General Vasant rarely goes out on campaigns these days, and prefers to stay by the side of the young ruler of the Federation. She ostensibly serves as Augusta Sara's adviser, but it would be more accurate to call her the Empress' guardian. Vasant herself isn't an Ades native, and instead hails from Keios, a troublesome territory that was annexed sometime during the previous Augusta's reign.
- A Mother to Her Men: ... Which is why she wasn't happy when her countrymen are sent to spearhead the attack on Glacies.
- Boobs of Steel: Her scarf really makes her large bust quite noticeable. And of course, being an exceptional general, she definitely qualifies as one.
- Enemy Mine: She allies with some of Ades old enemies-turned-annexed territories and other aggrieved parties against Luscinia.
- Heel–Face Turn: The slaughter of her countrymen in the assault on Glacies does NOT sit well with Vasant, enough that it causes her to rebel against Luscinia.
- Killed Off for Real: Luscinia finally (and personally) disposes of her when she tries to stop him from taking Augusta Sārā.
- Parental Substitute: She serves as Augusta's mother figure, something she swore to do after Farahnāz was assassinated.
- Prim and Proper Bun
- Purple Eyes: A dominant trait of the people of her country, apparently.
- The Red Baron: The Amethyst of Keios.
- The Smurfette Principle: The only named Ades general who's female.
- Undying Loyalty: To the ideals of the previous Empress Augusta. Though she was a firm believer in unification even as a cadet, despite being part of the annexed country of Keios, this only strengthened when Augusta Farahnāz was killed.
Voiced by: Masaya Matsukaze (Japanese), Christopher Bevins (English)The head of Ades' intelligence bureau, Alauda reports directly (and only) to the Premier Luscinia. Aside from information gathering, he seems to oversee some of the darker aspects of the Federation's governance, such as disposing of enemies of the state and other undesirables.
- Battle Butler: Like Cicada or Lucciola from the previous series.
- The Dragon: For Luscinia.
- Expy: A dead ringer for original series Cicada.
- Strangely, unlike Cicada, it was him who was more emotional and considerate in the past, while Luscinia's been cold and emotionally repressed.
- Facial Markings: Implying he is either a current or former Guildsman like Luscinia.
- Killed Off for Real: When he confronts Dio one last time.
- Pointy Ears: Not too surprising, since he and Luscinia have the most Guild-like designs since they are former "twin" bodyguard type Guildsmen.
- Professional Killer: Subsequent events have shown that Alauda is quick, silent, and very deadly. Only a single person so far has fought him on an even footing: Dio.
- Theme Naming: Like Luscinia, Alauda is named after a bird genera, specifically the ones that includes skylarks.
- White Hair, Black Heart: Going with his attitude and connections to the Guild.
- Voiced by: Mabuki Andou (Japanese), Stephanie Young (English)
- The Atoner: She regretted the lives that were lost during the wars before the peace treaty and the racism that came between the Earth Natives and the Exiles which is why she is promoting peace and understanding so that everyone including the children like her daughter Sārā could grow in a world of peace.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Covered Princess Liliana when an assassin tried to kill Liliana for getting in his way of killing Farahnāz herself.
- The High Queen
- Irony: She started the peace treaty between the various nations in order to stop the killings and end the Earth Natives discrimination against the Exiles, yet it was the Exiles who she wanted to protect that killed her. Also, her desire for world peace has been interpreted after her death as justifying terrible wars.
- Apparently is was her death specifically that convinced Luscinia in impossibility of integrating Exiles and Natives peacefully.
- A Mother to Her Men: Especially to her Guildsmen bodyguards Luscinia and Alauda, whom she treated like her sons.
- Reasonable Authority Figure
The United Kingdom of Anatoray-Disith
Voiced by: Eri Kitamura (Japanese), Clarine Harp (English)Captain of the infamous ghost ship, Tatiana is outwardly cool and all-business. She is also a skilled vanship pilot, a fact that she displays to full effect when a certain young and cheeky Sky Pirate thinks that her ship is easy pickings.
- Ace Pilot
- The Ace
- Back in the Saddle: She and Alister sortie out in their vanship once again for the climax.
- Call-Back: Near the end of the original series, she was briefly torn between serving on the bridge in place of Sophia and piloting but ultimately chose her vanship. Now she is both The Captain and Ace Pilot.
- The Captain
- Coat Cape
- Heterosexual Life-Partner: With Alister. Travelers From The Hourglass manga shows that they even live together.
- The Stoic: Tatiana seems to have mastered Alex's look of "not my problem".
- Took a Level in Badass: In the original series she was having difficulty adjusting in battle even with other vanship pilots and officers on top of being quite arrogant. By Fam the Silver Wing, she rose through the ranks eventuallyb ecoming an admirral and shows to be quite a competent leader capable of pulling off the battlefield ingenuity Rowe had and at least can compare to Fam as a pilot. She even wins the Grand Race at the end.
- When She Smiles: ... it usually means interesting times are in store for the ship.
Voiced by: Natsuko Kuwatani (Japanese), Mariela Ortiz (English)Tatiana's Executive Officer, Alister is much more expressive (and even-handed) than her captain. She takes over command of the Silvius whenever Tatiana feels the need to personally pilot her vanship during missions. She's been Tatiana's best friend for a long time and, being much more sly and scheming as it would look from the outside, isn't above manipulating her much more direct and straitlaced mate.
- Back in the Saddle: She and Tatiana sortie out in their vanship once again for the final battle against Luscinia.
- Cat Smile: She does this a lot when nobody's looking. Can be seen even on her image above.
- Cool Big Sis: Takes up this role with Giselle, likely due to her own experiences as Tatiana's navi.
- Guile Hero
- Heterosexual Life-Partner: At least from the academy, but probably even before that.
- Number Two
- Older and Wiser
Voiced by: Hozumi Gôda (Japanese), Brandon Potter (English)The supreme commander of the armed forces of the United Kingdom of Anatoray-Disith, Vincent is also the captain of the warship Urbanus. With the bulk of Anatoray and Disith's forces still off-planet, Vincent has been trying his best to cultivate alliances against a future confrontation with the Ades Federation. So far he hasn't had much success with isolationist Glacies, but the crisis in Turan has opened up opportunities for the wily leader.
- The Captain: And his warship the Urbanus makes its return with him.
- The Cavalry: Arrives with the the Anatoray half of Prester's fleet just in time for the push against the Grand Exile.
- Drink Order: Vincent sure loves his 'battleship coffee', and most of the time is shown with a cup of it either in hand or within easy reach.
- Know When to Fold 'Em: Took the hard decision to leave the Silvius to fend for itself to keep Alvis away from one more Guild's abduction attempt.
- Officer and a Gentleman: Comes with being one of the Anatoray's great nobles.
- The Empath: Al has a very specialized version of the ability: she can sense the activation (or destruction) of other Exiles, as well as their Keys. The latter facet of her ability becomes important in the climax as it helps Fam and Giselle locate Sara within the bowels of the Grand Exile. This ability was hinted at during the first series through her dreams, but only became prominent in the Silver Wing due to the presence of all the other Exiles.
- Hair Decorations: Look more like rocket engines instead of the jet turbine-like pins she wore in Last Exile.
- Pointy Ears: More prominent now than her previous appearance in Last Exile.
- The Other Darrin: Goes both ways — Kana Hanazawa takes over for Anna Shiraki, while Tia Ballard replaces Michelle Ruff.
Voiced by: Mayumi Asano (Japanese), Micah Solusod (English)An ex-courier and talented vanship pilot, Claus was a hero of the conflict that raged in his homeworld of Prester. He and Dio have some history together, and with his closest friend Lavie was Alvis' caretaker. He is currently recovering from injuries received from an unknown source in New Anatoray, under Lavie's supervision.
- All There in the Manual: Claus' adventures after the previous series are only now being described in the Travelers from the Hourglass manga.
- Continuity Nod: The whole of episode 15.5 is a reminder that, yes, Claus was the main character of the previous Last Exile.
- Demoted to Extra: Like his friend Lavie, Claus only appears in a cameo at the end of one of the recap episodes and in the series' finale.
- All There in the Manual: Lavie's adventures prior to Fam, The Silver Wing are only now being revealed through the Travelers from the Hourglass manga.
- Continuity Nod: Along with Claus and Alvis, Lavie was one of the main characters of the previous Last Exile.
- Demoted to Extra: For now, she's reduced to a cameo at the end of one of the recap episodes and the series itself.
Empress Sophia Forrester
Voiced by: Wakana Yamazaki (Japanese), Anastasia Munoz (English)The sovereign of the Anatoray segment of the United Kingdom of Anatoray-Disith, Sophia is also the captain of the warship Silvana. She arrives with her country's fleet just in time for the final push against Luscinia and his loyalists.
Voiced by: Yukana (Japanese), Tatiana Balazs (English)Dian is the leader of the Adamas Squadron, one of the many rocket vanship squads tasked with defending the Glacies border from interlopers. She serves in dual role of pilot and 'Winged Priestess/Witches', an embodiment of the "Goddess" the people of Glacies worship. First initially encountered during the Silvius' battle with the Ades Federation's 1st Fleet, Dian later saves Fam and her friends from their Ades pursuers, and helps gather the parts they need to repair their damaged vespa.
- Ace Pilot
- My God, What Have I Done?: Realizes her desire for revenge for her people destroyed the peace Sara had worked so hard for and killing Liliana, the woman who destroyed her country, made her sick and sad.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Just as peace is about to be made, she tries to kill Luscinia; instead, she kills Liliana.
- Revenge Before Reason: Insists on attacking anyone involved in the fall of Glacies, whether they're already nominally allies (Ōrang and his 3rd Fleet) or just preventing her from getting her revenge (Fam).
- Spell My Name with an "S": Is it Dian/Dyan/Dion?
- Sugar and Ice Personality: Despite the obvious language barrier and her stoic demeanour, Dian is actually very nice, as Fam and her friends find out.
- The Remnant: Dian, Viola, and at least eighteen other pairs are all that's left of Glacies' Winged Priestesses.
- The Stoic: She's not really expressive while in her cockpit, or off-duty for that matter.
- When She Smiles
Voiced by: Jenya [Eugenia Davidyuk] (Japanese), Yana Kolmakova (English)Viola is Dian's Navi, with all the responsibilities that entails.
- Fake Russian: Averted. Jenya, her Japanese voice actor, is a native Russian who is also the anime's Russian Language consultant.
- Number Two: Viola seems to take over Dian's duties as flight leader when the latter is busy.
- The Remnant
Voiced by: Sayuri Hara (Japanese), Marie Charlson (English)Dian's wingwoman. Goes by the Call sign "03".
Princess Liliana il Grazioso Merlo Turan
- A Mother To Her Men: One of the reasons why the men of the Turan Armed Forces are loyal to her. See Undying Loyalty.
- Distressed Damsel: From the end of episode 2 until episode 10.
- Everything's Better with Princesses
- Face–Heel Turn: After announcing her ascendance to the throne of Turan, she also immediately mentions that Turan and the Ades Federation are now allies. Milia obviously does not take this well.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Just seconds before peace could be made, she takes the bullet from Dian for Luscinia.
- Ironic Echo: 10 years ago, she was saved by Augusta Farahnāz, who got assassinated. 10 years later, she saves Luscinia. But in the process, she gets (inadvertently) assassinated by Dian.
- To further the irony, it turns out that Luscinia didn't need her protection, as the following episode shows that he can dodge bullets just fine.
- Slightly-Pointy Ears: Much like her sister Milia. Not surprising, as being an Exile key implies Guild descent, like Alvis from the previous series.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Initially. You wonder how reasonable you could call her after that Face–Heel Turn.
- Red Baron: The Witch of Turan.
- Taking the Bullet
- Tragic Villain: She willingly became the "Witch of Turan" so that her sister and the people of Turan, both Natives and Exiles, could have a future in a new world of peace.
- Theme Naming: Merlo means Blackbird in Italian.
- Silk Hiding Steel: Regal and mature, she treats the Sky Pirates as timely allies instead of enemies.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: She joins Luscinia and his plans after realizing that even though he is bent on conquering the world and killed her father, killing him will only makes things worse since his death will lead to a massive civil war in Ades over his position and the Exile nations will use that war to their advantage to grab power. As a result, she choose the Lesser of Two Evils believing it's the only way to save the world even if it means people calling her a witch.
- Ace Pilot: Already evident, but supported by the fact that he's the CO of the Silvius' vanship wing, taking over from Tatiana..
- He also is the winner of the Grand Race, and remember he know flies without a navi. though he gets disqualified for this, persumably because it makes his vanship too light.
- Calling Your Aerial Maneuvers
- Cloud Cuckoolander
- Declaration of Protection: He watches and protects Alvis in Claus' stead, after the latter is crippled.
- Facial Markings
- Genius Ditz
- Hidden Depths
- Late-Arrival Spoiler: Yes, this is the same Dio from Last Exile.
- The Mole: Not that much of a surprise, but he's been working with the Silvius this entire time.
- Pointy Ears: Comes with being a (former) Guildsman.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Not really glossed over in this series, but it's safe to assume that he became the Maestro of the Guild chapter from Anatoray's Prester.
- Sky Pirate
- Took a Level in Badass: He gets over his grief of Luciola from the original series and not only showcases all the training he received from the Guild, he's shown to have gotten better than he was in the original series being able to defeat Guild members superior to those o fthe original.
The Vingt Family
Voiced by: Tetsu Inada (Atamora), Takako Honda (Tereza), Nao Touyama (Félicité), Kanako Miyamoto (René), and Kanae Ito (Adelle) (Japanese), Brad Jackson (Atamora), Melinda Wood Allen (Tereza), Apphia Yu (Félicité), Lara Woodhull (René), and Holly Franklin (Adelle) (English)Giselle's family, of which Fam is an unofficial member. It is composed of family patriarch Atamora, his wife Tereza, and Giselle's three siblings: second daughter Félicité, only son René, and youngest daughter Adelle.Atamora is the leader of the Sky Pirates of Kartoffel, which means that he's also Fam's boss during skyship hunts. Despite this, Fam often gives him lip, but he just lets this slide since she is technically family. He was once a known vanship pilot in his youth, and was even a participant in the last Grand Race before it was discontinued due to war.
- Ace Pilot: Atamora was this in his youth.
- Badass Moustache: Atamora sports a truly epic handlebar.
- The Captain: What the family patriarch is now.
- Cheerful Child: All three Vingt siblings.
- Girlish Pigtails: Both Félicité and Adelle sport these.
- Happily Married: Atamora and Tereza of course.
- Sky Pirate: Atamora and Giselle's day job, if it wasn't already obvious.
- Team Mom: Tereza — literally.
Voiced by: Chiwa Saito (Japanese), Kara Edwards (English)Milia's young servant, easily-flustered Teddy is in some ways perfectly-suited to serving the demanding and headstrong younger princess, doing her bidding (mostly) without complaint. That said, one gets the feeling that Teddy would be rather be preparing tea and snacks somewhere quiet and unexciting. Alas, as long as he is under Milia's service, this wish will remain forever out of his reach.
