World Destruction Committee
The main character of Sands of Destruction. Kyrie believes he is a normal human being and lives life in an isolated area where both humans and Ferals are treated equally. However, there is more than meets the eye as he has the power to destroy the world. Because of this he is forced to leave his hometown and journey with Morte, who wants to use him to destroy the world.
A sixteen year old girl with a troubled past and wants to destroy the world because of it. She was originally the only member of the World Destruction Committee (anime wise) until she encountered Kyrie and found out he had the power to destroy the world. With him by her side, she sets her sight of destroying the discrimination in the world.
- Action Girl: In the anime and more of a Dark Action Girl in the manga and video games.
- Action Girlfriend: To Kyrie in a sense.
- Axe Crazy: In the manga and video game. Subverted in the anime.
- Badass: She has held her own against the World Salvation committee for years before she met Kyrie.
- Badass in Distress: In the anime where she wouldnít tell the Ferals where Kyrie and the Destruct Code were despite being beaten (almost to death).
- Berserk Button: In the video game, hurting Agan is ill advise as Rajiv learns the hard way. Morte kills him for beating up Agan in such a state and threatening a Fate Worse Than Death and that could literally mean anything by the way Agan was tied up.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: In the video game, by Serpens Rex. She gets better.
- Break the Cutie: In the anime. More of a Break the Haughty in the manga.
- Broken Bird: In the anime. Subverted in the video game.
- Crutch Character: In the video game, she starts out at higher level than Kyrie and is your primary damage dealer after Taupy. Halfway through the game, you probably will rely on Flurry attacks more, and since hers can only do 7 hits in total, she arguably becomes the least useful character in combat.
- Cute and Psycho: In the video game.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: In the anime where she opens up to Kyrie and Toppi. In the video game, it takes longer to open up to the group. Subverted in the manga.
- Flat Character: In the video game where her actions arenít explained. Lampshaded when she complains nothing happens to her in the Depths of Memory.
- Ironically, this is subverted to hell and back in the anime because she's the first one to be affected by the Depths of Memories and is the only character that wanted to remain there because she would rather live in a time of happiness instead of knowing the future.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: In all versions. Played for laughs in the anime and in the video game, its played for laughs most of the time. However, in the manga, it's considered a deconstruction as by snapping at Kyrie of all people, this prompts him to leave the group with Toppi and Naja following him.
- Jerkass: In the manga.
- Kick the Morality Pet: In the manga she snaps at Kyrie after he snaps at her and then announcing that he's going to turn himself into the World Salvation Committee. She attacks him in a fit of rage but Toppi and Naja stop her thus Kyrie proves his point.
- Lady of War
- Magic Skirt: Itís not immune to tears though.
- Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: With Kyrie.
- Meaningful Name: Morte means death.
- Names to Run Away From Really Fast: She actually has several in the game: "Scarlet Plague", "Beastslayer", and "Lady Death".
- Omnicidal Maniac: Oh so much.
- One Women Army: She can take out groups of enemies by herself with ease. However, the only thing that prevents her from going on a killing rampage is when Kyrie gets himself captured.
- Pet the Dog: She does this a lot in the anime. Inverted in the manga.
- Sugar And Ice Girl: In the anime toward Kyrie with a mix of Tsundere.
- Tsundere: Type A in the anime.
- Villain Protagonist: In the manga and video game. Subverted in the anime in which she tries to be one but ends up helping other people on their journey.
- What the Hell, Hero?: In the manga, in order to make sure that there would be no more human slaves in a village, she blows it up. Kyrie calls her out on this.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Mostly in the anime, but even the manga Morte has sympathetic moments.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: In the anime because despite her insistence that beastmen and humans cannot live together, Kyrie keeps seeing multiple moments where beast men are trying to change the world for the better and humans falling in love with beastmen. Subverted in the video game where she proves to be right on most occasions.
- Yandere: In the manga, at her worst.
- Bare-Fisted Monk: In the anime and manga, he fights using only his fists. In the game, his weapons are gloves, which is pretty close.
- Bears Are Bad News: For the enemies anyway.
- Berserk Button: Don't call him a teddy bear. The only person that has been able to live up to this day who called him one is Kyrie. However, in the anime, everyone calls him one and it pisses him off, but never does anything about it.
- The Big Guy: Despite being the smallest.
- Bodyguard Crush: While not a crush, he acts as Kyrieís royal bodyguard. His relationship with Kyrie can be questioned in the manga.
- Declaration of Protection: Toward Kyrie. It is a "It's Just that Simple" case in the anime and video game. However, both of these later become the "complicated" type because of Kyrie's status of being able to destroy the world.
- Eyepatch of Power: It doesn't do anything but it makes him look more badass.
- Honor Before Reason
- Knife Nut: In the anime, but only the first episode.
- Lightning Bruiser
- The Mentor: For Kyrie in the anime.
- Ridiculously Cute Critter: And he hates it.
- Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: With his wife. He barely reaches three-feet height, while his wife is around two stories tall.
- Verbal Tic: Kuma in the Japanese version or Bear-o in some translations of the English version.
In the game and manga, Agan is a close friend to Morte, having been in the Golden Lions with her. In the anime, Agan is just a smuggler unaffiliated with the Golden Lions, simply running into Morte, Kyrie, and Toppy through chance. Either way, he often assists the heroes, either for free or a price.
A dragon Feral who has lived for over 300 years. Being the last of her kind, Rhi'a desires to see the end of the world per to dragon tradition. Despite being calm in the game, in the anime she's prone to becoming trigger happy.
A half-human, half-beastman born to the previous Lupus Rex and a human woman, which earns him a large amount of scorn and racism; how racist changes in all three formats. Very analytical and competent, Naja is the main pursuer to the World Destruction Committee.
- Batman Gambit: In the anime, he does this to find the main characters.
- Fantastic Racism: See Half-Breed Discrimination.
- Friendly Enemy: In the anime, where he intends to win the Destruct Code from Morte via gambling and is always trying to find a compromise compared to Rhia who just wants to shoot Morte dead.
- Half-Human Hybrid: Stated in the game that he's the son of the previous Lupus Rex and a human woman.
- Half-Breed Discrimination: No one lets him forget he's a half-breed because of this. Many of his peers at work insult him due to the standing of humans as slaves, mocking that his blood or Naja himself smells of human and even treating him terribly despite his possibly high rank. Rajiv, who Naja works under, insults Naja almost immediately after the game starts and calls him out for his half-breed species in the manga. In the anime, it doesn't even seem like the boss of the entire World Salvation Committee likes Naja.
- Heel-Face Turn: In the video game.
- Heroic Albino
- Honor Before Reason
- Improbable Weapon User: Uses a set of wind and fire wheels.
- Momma's Boy: Hinted at in the game.
- Noble Demon: He's a nice guy, but it's expected seeing how his workplace treats him.
- The Sixth Ranger: In the game.
- Stoic Spectacles
- What Measure Is a Non-Human?
- Who Would Be Stupid Enough: In the anime, he tends to fall for the stupidest things. One episode comes to mind where he talks to this robot over again telling it that he and Rhia are part of the World Salvation Committee (which the robot messes up because Alligator Lord did not want them interfering with his plans.) Naturally, Rhia is seen as the smarter one of the two in this situation where using violence actually got her somewhere.
