Mohan McKenzieA first-year student at Morimune who has Seleighe and Djinn ancestors.
Tropes associated with Mohan:
- Glass Cannon: He's at least at maximum human strength, but he's very fragile.
- Half-Human Hybrid
- Pride Before a Fall: His pride ultimately led to his body getting turned hideous.
Shimizu ArashiA second-year student who occasionally jokes around, but is fairly calm in general.
Tropes associated with Arashi:
Kaemon NanashiA second-year student, a bit naive and hot-blooded.
Tropes associated with Kaemon:
Aiko KimuraA second-year student who's half human, half satyr.
Tropes associated with Aiko:
Rhyme SoleiA junior, quiet and serious with a strong sense of justic.
Tropes associated with Rhyme:
John ThorntonA freshman, with psychic powers, and an extreme case of split personality.
- Brainwashed and Crazy
- Butt Monkey: He's even hated by his narrator.
- Deconstructed. This trait was, largely, what made Ignius select John.
- Crippling Overspecialization
- The Dragon: The most active of the bunch, in terms of relation to Ignius.
- Even the Guys Want Him: Correction, only the guys want him.
- Flanderization: Played with. Whatever he feels affects his personality, thanks to his unstable mind, and that feeling gets amplified. This means there is a huge difference between when he is angry, when he is sleepy, etc.
- Funny Schizophrenia
- Averted, after some meddling by Ignius
- Mind over Matter
- More Than Mind Control
- Playing with Fire: His prefered method of attacking.
- Non-Action Guy: He is completely fine with staying in the sidelines.
- Overshadowed by Awesome: So far, he has been outclassed in every ground, by other individuals with mental abilities.
Suzuki HaruoA third-year student who loves jokes and pranks. He is generally easy-going, and pretty trusting.
Tropes associated with Suzuki:
- Blow You Away
- Green Thumb: One of his powers is the ability to create clouds of mixed thorns and petals.
- What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: If he used his powers right and had the skill to do so, his powers could deal extreme damage. As it is, they're pretty weak.
The Esper Organization
Matthew StreikaA young man from America, this teenager has been working with the Organization for nearly a year now, and has a certain reputation with the nastier side of the supernatural. His ability is to create swords. He has come to Morimune hoping to make sure Ein Woe is not successful in what he has set out to do.
- Beware the Nice Ones
- Berserk Button: Do not try to assassinate his new friends. Just don't. It will not end well for you, as a certain vampire assassin found out the hard way.
- Fight Magnet: He has a Holy Artifact in him, so its really a given.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: It is all Matthew can use, really.
- Idiot Hero: Though perhaps not as dull as he acts sometimes...
- Nice Guy: Almost incredible, really, that he can go through so much and come out of it so nice and well adjusted. Matthew is, identity issues and dark side aside, a very kind, industrious and understanding individual who doesn't care who or what it is that is in danger, he will help out.
- Perpetual Smiler: A hint that not everything about Matthew is peachy.
- Arch-Enemy: to Matthew and Johnson and Nathan.
- Aristocrats Are Evil: Grand Duke Class Demon.
- Asskicking Equals Authority and Authority Equals Asskicking: Demons are classed and respect one another based on their rank.
- Big Bad: Maybe, maybe not.
- Card-Carrying Villain: Ein deeply enjoys all the evil he does.
- The Chessmaster: Skillfully orchestrates events in this fashion.
- The Corrupter: Ein has a record with this trope.
- Dark Is Evil: Although he is mostly pale white, he wears a cult-like black outfit.
- Driven to Madness: All it took was one bad day (the betrayal of Gabe, the almost-suicide of his perspective girlfriend, and then finding out why he was always a cast-out and that demons are "naturally evil".)
- Expy: One could make the case for Ein being, basically, a superpowered Joker.
- Facial Horror: Half his face is covered by a bone-like exoskeleton, his right eye is just a red slit.
- From Nobody to Nightmare: His canon backstory: abused bastard child, seeing hope for the first time in a certain school, and then having it brutally, utterly shot down right in front of him.
- Monster Clown: Has common characteristics attributed to them.
- Multiple-Choice Past: Like the Joker, Ein has a couple backstories.
- Slasher Smile: Always described as smiling. Always.
Ignius / StrifeA bizarre priestly boy from another world, Ignius seems to resemble Matthew to some degree, and has been orchestrating some events to seemingly avoid a catastrophe. However, his methods for accomplishing this are very dark indeed, and most of his traits and even his backstory remain hidden from sight. He appears to possess terrifyingly powerful reality warping abilities, enough to be a Dimension Lord.
- Ambiguously Evil: While his stated intentions are good, he seems to employ a lot of really morally dark gray / black methods to get to this, including mind raping an innocent girl just to put her brother into another body (long story), brainwashing and artificially aging the Plucky Comic Relief, and then he gave Black Blades to Tsuhiro.
- The Corrupter: He has corrupted John and Tsuhiro into being his Co-Dragons.
- Light Is Not Good: Priestly appearance, white robe that screams "Pope", and white hair? Check. Morally dubious ways of trying to save the world? Incredibly secretive? Check.
- Manipulative Bastard: He knew exactly what to say to get Tsuhiro on his side, and he made sure to give John "peace of mind".
- Mind Rape: He uses this a lot.
- Reality Warper: Owns his own dimension, can control nearly everything in this dimension, including time and space, and is capable of "matter transmutation".
- The Stoic: Not much can phase Ignius
- Well-Intentioned Extremist
SamaelA mysterious masked man who appeared during the fight with Ein Woe and Jae'yon, and displayed very high levels of talent with his Magical Eye power, the Shinjinme. Next to nothing is known about him, other than that he is possibly even more powerful than Ein Woe, and has very personal stakes in this war. A Hero Killer of high caliber, in New Dawn proper he has a high kill count attached to his name.
- Berserk Button: In story, do not withhold information or fool around on a mission. Don't. He hates that. Also, no female hostages. That will get you ripped apart. And heaven help you if you should try to rape your target. That's a quick way to be stuck in a Fate Worse Than Death.
- Bad Ass: if your response to being tricked by Dolph into revealing your vulnerability, and then having one arm and one leg fall off due to being shredded by an Aura Rave is to compliment Dolph's ingenuity and then calmly teleport out, you qualify.
- Dangerously Genre Savvy: This is a man who never, ever, fights fair. If he can easily win by exploiting his broken Magical Eye, he will do so. He won't attack you from the front. He'll teleport in and stab you from behind.
- Enigmatic Minion: Do we even know what he wants?
- Generic Doomsday Villain: Somewhat. He does not seem to have a motive for running around shanking people.
- Healing Factor
- Hero Killer: Of both heroes and villains in New Dawn. His complete count? Shouji Muzoku, Jack, Mary, Steven, Devin, David Reaver, Carmon Calan and Jill Levenheim, Antoine Reyva, and then the Phantom Claw Trainees.
- Kick the Dog: He really did not need to make the suppression that painful. He just decided to do so anyway.
- Magical Eye: Maybe an Expy of the Sharingan, but even more ridiculous. It lets him cast very powerful spells without even making necessary preparations, drops the Mana requirements for such spells to almost nil, and gives him some really powerful abilities.
- Malevolent Masked Man
- No-Nonsense Nemesis: This guy does not fuck around. He barely even talks to people he's trying to kill.
