!!Kyrie Illunis
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/8fbad55eeee2099fddcd0cf22b3d38f9.png]]
->Voiced by: Creator/MamoruMiyano ''(Japanese)'', Creator/EvanWood ''(English game)'', Creator/ToddHaberkorn ''(English anime)''

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.

* ActionSurvivor: In the anime.
* AdaptationalWimp: No version of Kyrie particularly ''likes'' to fight, but his anime self is pathetically incompetent in terms of even staying out of the way.
* AllLovingHero: Best exemplified by a Life Skill he gains late in the game, ''Porta Clausa'', which negates all damage for three turns. Not all damage to your party; '''all damage''', including to enemies. Kyrie would really rather not hurt anyone if he can. All versions of him are kind and generous to everyone, though the game makes it clear he's especially fond of Morte.
* AllMenArePerverts: Subverted in the anime: one episode, he had the chance to look up Morteís skirt because it had a huge tear in it and was getting bigger with every movement she made. Instead, he spent the entire episode trying to sew it back together instead of commenting on the rip. [[CrowningMomentofFunny It does not go well...]]
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: The game makes it clear that, while he doesn't ''want'' to hurt ''anyone'', Morte is his first priority.
* AmazonChaser: In the game, his infatuation with Morte starts from a love of her dynamic and passionate beliefs. Her beliefs just happen to be "let's kill everything". [[spoiler:Of course, as the Destruct, it's a little hardwired into him to need to end the world, even if he doesn't realize it at first.]]
* ApologizesALot: All versions of him have him apologizing whether it's to his friends or enemies. However, in the video game, it becomes a quip that he apologizes even if it isn't his fault.
-->'''Agan''': Apologizing to your own [[spoiler: murderer]]. That's a first.
* [[spoiler:TheAtoner: In the manga, his powers went out of control and he ended up killing everyone in a village as a result. He leaves Morte in order to find a way to control his powers.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes ''and'' IFeelAngry: No matter how the Ferals treat him or what they do, Kyrie generally has the inability to get angry. However, this is subverted in the manga [[spoiler: as when he finally does snap at Morte, it shocks everyone.]]
* {{Bishounen}}: More in the video game as in the anime, he's in the {{moe}} category.
* BlessedWithSuck: The power to destroy the world? No, Kyrie would rather just bake cakes; controlling all that power (or worse, ''not'' controlling it) causes problems.
* BoyMeetsGirl: How he meets Morte.
* [[CatGirl Cat Boy]]: When he needs a disguise, he will disguise himself as a cat boy. An adorable one you might add.
* TheChick: At his worst, he becomes this instead of TheHero. Then again, in the video game, he's always the one that suggests the least violent method of action similar to TheChick role.
* TheChosenOne: Chosen to end the world, that is. [[ItSucksToBeTheChosenOne He is not happy about it]].
* CloudCuckooLander: Seems to be this in the game and anime. Subverted in the manga.
* TheCutie
** [[spoiler: BreakTheCutie: In the manga and video game.]]
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Inverted in the anime. Played straight in the manga and video game.
* CutenessProximity: In the manga, he squeals at seeing Toppi for the first time. In the video game, he has a similar experience as he continues to call Toppi a teddy bear every now and then. Subverted in the anime where he's freaked out over Toppi's appearance.
* DishingOutDirt: His Destruct powers allow him to turn everything around himself to sand.
* DistressBall: Anime counterpart tends to get himself in situations that could get him killed.
* DistressedDude: No matter if itís the anime, manga or video game, Kyrie will always get captured. UpToEleven in the anime where every other episode he gets captured and has to wait for his teammates to think of a plan to escape the Ferals.
* TheDitz: In the anime. He is rather...clumsy...
* DoomedHometown: In the manga and the video game. It doesnít say what his hometown is in the anime, though, [[spoiler:but judging from the memory lane episode, it was obvious that he was searching for work because something happened to it.]]
* [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide: In the video game, after failing to control his powers for a second time, he asks Naja to kill him.]]
* DudeLooksLikeALady: In the manga, one can easily mistake Kyrie for a woman. Blame the artist for that.
* [[spoiler: EleventhHourSuperpower: In the anime and video game.]]
* FashionableAsymmetry: Only wears a glove on his left hand.
* FarmBoy: Worked in a restaurant in a very small village until the plot happened.
* FragileSpeedster: In the video game, which is odd because heís the main character. All of his support moves are healing and his offensive special moves are all statue moves. Also, he does the least damage but makes up with incredible accuracy.
* FriendToAllChildren: As part of the standard NiceGuy package. In the anime, he even teaches a group of orphans how to bake a cake for their caretaker's birthday.
* GenderBlenderName: While Kyrie is considered masculine in the original Greek, in modern English it's a unisex name.
* GenreSavvy: In the anime where Kyrie proves that the world can live with humans and Ferals, despite what others believe.
* GoGoEnslavement:
** Kind of a subversion, but in one episode in the anime where he, Morte and Toppi were captured, he was the only one who had an outfit change when he was working in the kitchen.
** In the game, he was also perfectly willing to accept the Beastmen as humanity's rightful rulers. This says as much about his personality as it says about the fact that Ursa Rex was a kind and benevolent ruler to the humans under his command.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: For someone who has the power to end the world, Kyrie sure is a NiceGuy.
* TheHeart: Always wants to talk things out instead of using violence. In the manga, [[spoiler:when he leaves the group because of an argument with Morte, the rest of the group soon splits up as well.]]
* TheHero: A cowardly one.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: In all versions, he eventually has this relationship with Taupy.
* HiddenDepths: All versions in all different ways.
** His [[ThePollyanna cheerful self]] in the anime [[spoiler: hides the fact that he is the Destruct Code that can destroy the world and his happy persona was created to hide the fact that he was indeed a dangerous weapon.]]
** His manga counterpart is similar to the anime only [[StepfordSmiler he's not all smiles.]] [[spoiler: On the inside, [[TheAtoner he feels really guilty]] for [[DoomedHometown killing everyone close to him]] all because he couldn't control his powers and wishes to do so to prevent any more victims.]]
** His video game counterpart is a combination of the two and while he really is a happy person, [[spoiler: the idea of destroying the world does get to him eventually and then when he kills more people because of his powers, [[DespairEventHorizon he falls into a state of despair]] and [[DeathSeeker asks Naja to kill him.]]]]
* IAmAMonster: In the game and manga, his lack of control over his powers makes him extremely dangerous even to his friends. This causes him no small amount of angst.
* [[spoiler:IAmNotAGun: In the game, the Destruct is a creation of the will of the world to be brought to its natural end. Kyrie is ''not'' pleased to learn his identity is a lie.]]
* IAmWho: In the game, Kyrie was raised without any knowledge of his identity as the Destruct - or even that such a thing might ''exist''. Naturally, when his powers activate, it freaks him out monumentally and it takes him a while to come to terms with what he really is and is capable of.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: He complains about this in the anime but isnít taken seriously (since he has control over his power) but played straight in the manga and video game.
* [[ImTakingHerHomeWithMe Iím Taking Him Home With Me!]]: Kyrie does this to Toppi in the manga because he insists that Toppi is a teddy bear. Toppi is not amused.
* InnocentBlueEyes: In all versions, he's an extremely kind NiceGuy with dark blue eyes.
* InSeriesNickname: Taupy refers to him as "Kid".
* ItsAllMyFault: One of his quips in the game is, "It's probably my fault..." It activates on occasion when he takes damage.
* KatanasAreBetter: In the manga.
* KindHeartedCatLover: Stated in the video game that he adores cats. This also explains why he wears the cat ears in the anime.
* KnifeNut: In the video games.
* LethalChef: In the video game as this is one of his many attacks against enemies.
** PoisonousPerson
* LivingMacGuffin: Kyrie is capable of massive damage output, but doesn't know how to control it. Morte wants to figure out a way to use this power and doesn't particularly care too much if he's a person or just a random orb.
* LovableCoward: He grows out of this in the manga and video game.
* LoveMartyr: The reason he stays with Morte. This is horribly subverted in the manga as he [[spoiler: snaps at her for blowing up an entire town and leaves the World Destruction Committee as a result.]]
* MagicalEye: [[spoiler:His left eye is where the Destruct Code is actually hidden; it glows when he Awakens in the anime.]]
* MagneticHero: In the game, most every character joins the Front because they find Kyrie fascinating for one reason or another. [[spoiler:When he dies, the team nearly splits up because their common glue is gone.]]
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: With Morte.
* MeaningfulName: Kyrie in Greek is lord. His full name is likely a misspelling of a well-known prayer, ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyrie Kyrie eleison]]'', meaning "Lord, have mercy!" Alternatively, Illunis may be meant to sound like "illusion", as in the illusion he initially has that he's just an ordinary boy.
* TheMedic: While everyone has a healing move, all of his life skills are ''all'' healing which range from healing the entire party's HP, status alignments and regen.
** CombatMedic: He can fight with knife and is a very fast fighter. However, look at FragileSpeedster.
* MessianicArchetype: All versions to some extent, but ''especially'' the game.
* MoralityPet[=/=]MoralityChain: Mainly to Morte but applies to the whole group. [[spoiler: In the manga, after he gets into a fight with Morte, the group splits up.]]
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: In the video game, he's given the name "Destruct" when he "joins" the World Destruction Committee. Naturally, whenever someone sees Kyrie, they're convinced that his title doesn't match him at all.
* NiceGuy
* NonActionGuy: In the anime [[spoiler: until the last episode.]]
* NotQuiteHuman: Kyrie looks like a normal seventeen-year-old boy. How he's not human varies between adaptations:
** In the game, he was [[ArtificialHuman a soulless being created by the Creator of the world]] for the [[TheChosenOne specific purpose of destroying the world when the time came]]. [[spoiler:The love shown to him by Morte, his friends, the villagers he grew up with, and even the Crimson Sun in the guise of his Uncle Agni allowed him to develop emotions, free will, and a soul, rendering him fully human but with extreme power.]]
** In the anime, [[spoiler:he's an ageless being who has been alive since the creation of the world.]]
** In the manga...WikiMagic?
* NotSoBadassLongcoat: Very much so in the anime, where he spends his time running and hiding from fights. Still a little bit in the manga and video game, as he's such a NiceGuy as opposed to your usual personality.
* [[spoiler: ObfuscatingStupidity: In the manga he knows heís a dangerous person and tries to play it off that he isnít. Too bad heís in a series where every character is very observant.]]
* [[spoiler: OneManArmy: In the anime, he single handedly took out his enemies before trying to engulf the world in sand. Thank god Morte stopped him.]]
* PersonOfMassDestruction
* ThePollyanna: In the anime. Not so much in the manga and video game.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Invokes this in the anime and video game but is horribly subverted in the manga.
* RecruitmentByRescue:
** In the game, Morte breaks him out of a feral prison after hearing he accidentally turned a whole village to sand.
** In the anime, Morte accidentally exposes him as a human posing as a feral and, while she wasn't ''intending'' to rescue him, does end up dragging him out of the restaurant.
** In the manga, Morte and Taupy rescue him from Rajiv as he's being taken for accidentally destroying a village.
* [[spoiler: [[RedEyesTakeWarning Red Hair Take Warning]]]]
* ReluctantWarrior: In the game, he'd much rather talk than be forced to fight, but winds up killing quite a few beastlords and countless random mooks.
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: Or rather savvy guy, crazy girl.
* ShounenHair: Very messy and sticks up in random ways. [[spoiler:In the game, Awakened Kyrie has not only flaming red hair, but it's a tad longer and more windswept, too.]]
* ShrinkingViolet: In the anime.
* StayInTheKitchen: Not used by him against females but some beastmen actually tell him that he's better off in the kitchen. This is mainly used to insult Kyrie being a human but since [[TheChick he is physically the weakest of the group]] and [[DistressedDude needing constant saving]], it fits him well. [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Naturally, he takes this comment in stride.]]
* [[spoiler: StepfordSmiler: In the manga, after killing an entire village with his powers, he is forced to put on a smile, while in the video game, the longer it takes to control his power, the sadder he gets, so he ends up being Type A. This is also true in the video game as time goes on but subverted in the anime.]]
* SupremeChef: In the anime he is often the one that cooks for the group, and even impresses the prisoners in the jail where the Committee was being held with his skill. In the game, his special moves are all based around cooking. Even his knife is considered a cooking utensil for battle.
* TeamChef: See above.
* TeamMom: He tends to try and be the peacemaker of the group, and is fairly domestic.
* TheSoCalledCoward: In the anime, while he runs away most of the time [[spoiler: he is very capable of holding a human's attack on a beast man temporary. Too bad this doesn't stick.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: In the video game.
* UselessProtagonist: Played straight with the anime [[spoiler: until the last episode.]] Played with in the manga. Averted in the video game.
* WeakButSkilled: In the manga.
* WideEyedIdealist:
** Although in the anime he starts out fairly world-weary, their journey across the world changes this.
** Played straight in the video game where he thinks that everyone has a chance to get along from the start but it slowly dies away as the game goes on.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Played with as he does have the power to destroy it. [[spoiler: Then again, in the anime when he was at the very end, he did become the very thing that the Salvation Committee tried to prevent.]]
* WrongGenreSavvy: In the video game, heís the only person that believes that humans and Ferals can live together. Boy is he wrong.

!!Morte Ashera
[[quoteright:249:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d5b9ad0101ef666a87f39452442fd248.png]]
->Voiced by: Creator/MaayaSakamoto ''(Japanese)'', Creator/DeborahEliazer ''(English game)'', Creator/LuciChristian ''(English anime)''

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.

* ActionGirl: In the anime. More of a DarkActionGirl in the manga and video games.
* ActionGirlfriend: To Kyrie in a sense. Officially becomes one about halfway through the game, though remains unofficial in other adaptations.
* AdaptationalCurves: While Morte is never flat-chested and is acknowledged by other characters as beautiful, the manga seems to double her bra size in comparison to the game and anime. The anime ''may'' have slightly filled out her figure as well, but it's much less drastic of a change.
* AxeCrazy: In the manga and video game. Subverted in the anime.
* BaconAddiction: Her favorite food is a sandwhale bacon sandwich.
* {{Badass}}: She has held her own against the World Salvation committee for years before she met Kyrie.
** BadassInDistress: In the anime where she wouldnít tell the Ferals where Kyrie and the Destruct Code were despite being beaten (almost to death).
** BadassLongcoat: Sans sleeves.
* BerserkButton: In the video game, hurting Agan is ill advised as [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Rajiv]] learns the hard way. [[spoiler: Morte kills him for beating up Agan and threatening a FateWorseThanDeath, which could have literally meant anything by the way [[DoesThisRemindYouofAnything Agan was tied up.]]]]
* {{BFS}}: Her weapon of choice is a double-ended scimitar that's nearly as tall as she is.
* [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy: In the video game, by Serpens Rex. She gets better.]]
* BreakTheCutie: In the anime. More of a BreakTheHaughty in the manga.
* BrokenBird: In the anime. Subverted in the video game.
* ChildhoodFriend: To Agan in the game and manga. While they're very close (hurting Agan [[BerserkButton is a good way to insure a painful death for yourself]]), it's obvious they're LikeBrotherAndSister.
* CrutchCharacter: 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.
* CuteAndPsycho: In the video game and manga.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt
* DefrostingIceQueen: In the anime where she opens up to Kyrie and Toppi. In the video game, it takes her longer to open up to the group. Subverted in the manga.
* DetachedSleeves[=/=]OperaGloves: Tight like gloves, but has no fingers like a long sleeve.
* {{Determinator}}: Once she gets an idea in her head - whether that's world destruction, [[spoiler:resurrecting Kyrie]], or [[spoiler:remaking the entire world into a better place]] - there's absolutely no stopping her.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: In the game. She complains that [[TheyDontMakeThemLikeTheyUsedTo they don't make sand skiffs like they used to]]; you redline them once or twice and the darn thing just overheats and dies on you. Poor Kyrie could barely keep up.
* FashionableAsymmetry: Her gloves are slightly different on each hand.
* FingerlessGloves
* FistPump: Her VictoryPose in the game.
* FlatCharacter: In the video game where her actions arenít explained. Lampshaded when [[spoiler:she complains nothing happens to her in the Depths of Memory]].
** Ironically, this is subverted to hell and back in the anime [[spoiler: 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.]]
* FormFittingWardrobe: Most large coats ''hide'' the wearer's figure rather than being neatly tucked in beneath the breasts. Becomes even more noticeable in the manga, where her shirt even dips in between her breasts to avoid the uniboob effect.
* GenkiGirl: In the game, she's extremely excitable and doesn't do anything by half.
* GenreSavvy:: In the video game where she proves to be right on most occasions.
* GirlWithPsychoWeapon: She often brandishes that big sword in a menacing manner (as if there were any way to hold a sword as large as a person and ''not'' be menacing about it).
* GirlyBruiser: She'll happily bomb you six ways to Sunday before squeeing over a sparkly dress. The game even has a ChainOfDeals in which a set of feral sisters recognize that the human girl actually has some fashion sense.
* GreenEyes: Certainly has the temperament expected of it.
* HairTriggerTemper: In all versions. Played for laughs in the anime; in the video game, it's played for laughs most of the time. However, in the manga, it gets played for drama as [[spoiler: by snapping at Kyrie of all people, this prompts him to leave the group with Toppi and Naja following him.]]
* IcyBlueEyes: In the game, which is somewhat unusual as her personality is most fiery in that incarnation. However, her one Blood Skill that isn't [[MadBomber a bomb]] is [[AnIcePerson Blizzard]].
* InLoveWithYourCarnage: In the game, she fangirls a bit when first meeting Kyrie because she heard he turned an entire village to sand. When she learns he can't do it on command and doesn't actually ''want'' to ever do it again, she's disappointed and vows to show him how terrible the world is so he'll want to destroy it. Her reaction in the manga is similar.
* InsistentTerminology: Morte is ''sixteen'', '''not''' seventeen! Wanted posters listing her as a year older is sort of a sore point for her.
* ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne: When discussing the various things the Ferals call her, she claims she dislikes the name "Lady Death" because [[YouAreTheTranslatedForeignWord it's too unoriginal]].
* {{Jerkass}}: In the manga.
** JerkassWoobie: In the anime.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: In the anime.
* KickChick: The game makes good use of her kicking animation; the anime, surprisingly, doesn't show her affinity for foot attacks.
* KickTheMoralityPet: In the manga [[spoiler: 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.]]
* [[spoiler:TheKidWithTheRemoteControl]]: In the game, the Crimson Son eventually decides to teach her [[spoiler:the words that control Kyrie's Destruct powers.]] It's just as well, considering she's the only one he'd listen to at that point anyway. [[spoiler:Luckily, most of her crazy has been turned to more constructive uses by then; she now intends to use his powers to recreate the world.]]
* LadyOfWar: You'd expect someone who plans to end the world to look haggard. You would be wrong.
* MadBomber: In the game, where she's more upbeat about ending the world. Several of her special attacks involve explosives, including a MolotovCocktail. The ferals also have a rumor that if the Scarlet Plague doesn't blow something up often enough, she starts getting the shakes. Morte claims that's not true, but StuffBlowingUp ''is'' very cathartic and helps clear her mind.
* MagicSkirt: If she ever crouches facing the viewer, things become inexplicably dark under her skirt. Itís not immune to tears though.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Kyrie would have been perfectly content to simply let life happen to him were it not for her suddenly showing up.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: With Kyrie.
* MeaningfulName:
** Morte means death, and she desires to kill the world.
** Ashera is the name of an ancient mother goddess, wife of the creator of the world. [[spoiler:When Kyrie remakes the world at the end of the game, effectively becoming the new creator, Morte remains by his side. She's also the first to suggest remaking the world.]]
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: Her general sentiment in all things is to just kill it and be done with it, up to and including ''the entire world''. [[spoiler:At least at first. She later decides ''changing'' the world is better than ending it - but if anyone tries to stop her, it's still fastest to kill them.]]
* MusclesAreMeaningless: Her whip-thin arms are perfectly capable of swinging that giant blade around, and her Blow attacks are some of the hardest-hitting in the game.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: She actually has several in the game: "Scarlet Plague", "Beastslayer", and "Lady Death".
* ObliviousToLove: In the game, Agan notes that she wasn't aware what Kyrie meant to her until [[spoiler:he asked Naja to kill him so he couldn't destroy the world]]. She also never seems to notice his giddy swooning when they first meet.
* OmnicidalManiac: Oh so much.
* [[OneManArmy One Woman 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.
* PetTheDog: She does this a lot in the anime. Inverted in the manga.
* PinkMeansFeminine: Despite her prowess in and enjoyment of battle, Morte is quite insulted when Agan insinuates she isn't feminine, as if her bright pink outfit wasn't clue enough.
* PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery: In the video game, she really just wants to destroy the world. The fact that it's full of FantasticRacism is just a convenient excuse.
* RelativeButton: Agan [[LikeBrotherAndSister may as well be her older brother]]. If you like your innards where they are, you ''don't'' hurt him.
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: In the game and manga, she has a romantic version with Kyrie and a [[LikeBrotherAndSister non-romantic]] version with Agan. Apparently it takes a tag-team to keep up with her.
* ShesGotLegs: A DVD {{Omake}} nicknames her "The Leggy Terrorist". Odd, considering the anime downplays her KickChick tendencies.
* SleevesAreForWimps: Her long coat is sleeveless despite the fact that she's not muscular at all; just don't mistake her slim figure for weakness.
* SugarAndIceGirl: In the anime toward Kyrie with a mix of {{Tsundere}}.
* SupportingLeader: Kyrie is the main character, but Morte is the leader (and perhaps only "true" member) of the World Destruction Committee and the plot kicks off and follows her more than him.
* ThighHighBoots: With a zipper up the front.
* TokenEvilTeammate: She's the only one of the main characters who ''really'' wants to destroy the world, despite their entire team being named for doing just that.
* TranquilFury: When Rajiv beats Agan, she switches from her usual gleeful destruction to a very cold, calculated demeanor and [[GoryDiscretionShot kills him slowly offscreen]]. Even [[LoveMartyr Kyrie]] is a little disturbed and notes "Morte has a dark side."
* TroubledButCute: In the anime. Not quite so much in the game or manga, as she's more welcoming of company and less prone to brooding.
* {{Tsundere}}: Type A in the anime.
* TheUnchosenOne: In the game, Kyrie was born to destroy the world; nobody said anything about some random girl who wanted in on the action. [[spoiler:As it turns out, falling in love with her is what keeps Kyrie from losing control when the Destruct Code is used. That definitely wasn't in the Creator's plans for the world.]]
* VillainProtagonist: In the manga and video game. Subverted in the anime in which she tries to be one [[PettheDog but ends up helping other people on their journey.]]
* WaifFu: She's only 5'4" (162cm) but is more than capable of taking care of herself in a fight and wielding that {{BFS}}
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Kyrie believes her to be one in the game, claiming that he can tell she loves the world in spite of herself and the only reason she wants to end it is [[MercyKill because she can't stand to see it in the state it's in]].
* WhatTheHellHero: In the manga, in order to make sure that there would be no more human slaves in a village, [[spoiler: she blows it up.]] Kyrie calls her out on this.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Mostly in the anime, but even the manga Morte has sympathetic moments.
* WrongGenreSavvy: 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.
* {{Yandere}}: In the manga, at her worst.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A, using ThighHighBoots instead of socks.

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/a4888c97b767a07f3e2495d9e003b216.png]]
->Voiced by: Creator/ToruFuruya ''(Japanese)'', Creator/ErikBraa ''(English game)'', Creator/RobertMcCollum ''(English anime)''

* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Shoes, gloves, a collar, and a bandana on his head, but no shirt or pants in sight.
* AmbiguousSituation: In the game, it's unclear whether Muffy is actually his wife or just his live-in girlfriend. He refers to her as "my girl" but never clarifies whether that's short for girlfriend or just an AffectionateNickname.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassAdorable: He kicks ass! This does not stop small children (or Kyrie) from squeeing over him.
** BadassArmfold: One of his favored poses, including his VictoryPose in the game.
* BareFistedMonk: In the anime and manga, he fights using only his fists. In the game, his weapons are gloves, which is pretty close.
* BearsAreBadNews: For the enemies anyway.
* BerserkButton: 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 [[MoralityPet Kyrie.]] However, in the anime, everyone calls him one and it pisses him off, but he never does anything about it.
* TheBigGuy: Despite being the smallest.
* BodyguardCrush: While not a crush, he acts as Kyrieís royal bodyguard. His relationship with Kyrie can be questioned in the manga.
* DeclarationOfProtection: 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.
* EyepatchOfPower: It doesn't do anything but it makes him look more badass.
* FunnyAnimal: Clearly further down the SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism than most other beastmen, but they don't seem to have any FantasticRacism against him for it; they just mock him for being small and cute.
* HonorBeforeReason: He wants to be seen as a hero and insists on doing heroic things, even if he's stuck traveling with a girl who ''wants to end the world''.
* KnifeNut: In the anime, but only the first episode.
* LightningBruiser
* TheMentor: For Kyrie in the anime and manga.
* MyInstinctsAreShowing: In the anime, Taupy always insists that he isn't a bear and no one should call him one. However, when they visit the Winter Continent, he has a near-uncontrollable urge to hibernate.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Probably one of the strongest fighters in the game, thanks to being able to chain Flurry attacks. Capable of taking on much larger opponents in the anime and manga as well, while still being barely knee-high.
* RebelRelaxation: He often leans against a wall during cutscenes in the game.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: And he hates it.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: With his wife. He barely reaches three-feet in height, while his wife is around ''two stories'' tall.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Kyrie in all adaptations.
* VagueAge: The game lists everyone's age except his.
* VerbalTic: Kuma in the Japanese version or Bear-o in some translations of the English version. He doesn't have it in his "inner voice" when he narrates in the anime; Kyrie [[LampshadeHanging questions why]].

->Voiced by: Creator/HiroyukiYoshino ''(Japanese)'', Creator/AndreCeglio ''(English game)'', Creator/EricVale ''(English anime)''

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.

* {{Badass}}
** BadassInDistress: In the video game, he gets captured by the beast men and the group has to save him before he ends up in a FateWorseThanDeath situation.
* {{Bishounen}}
* BreakTheCutie: Subverted. Rajiv tries this method on him when captured. [[InsultBackfire It goes horribly wrong.]]
* TheChewToy: In the video game, to some extent. Morte just loves to abuse him.
* ChildhoodFriend: To Morte in the game and manga. The only thing that keeps him from being [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend unlucky]] is the fact that he treats her [[LikeBrotherAndSister like she's his obnoxious kid sister]]. They have no prior relationship in the anime.
* CoolBoat: Too bad it has a tendency of getting damaged often. The funny thing is that itís a nice boat too!
* DeadpanSnarker
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: When Agan is captured, you can hear Rajiv beating him with a whip trying to get him to [[DoubleEntendre "submit".]] Naja leaves the area because he's disgusted. Rajiv then tries to [[BreaktheCutie break]] him by telling him that members of the Golden Lions betrayed him and got him captured because they're all selfish bastards. When Agan refuses to submit though, Rajiv then threatens him to use something that would hurt him beyond imagination. [[RapeasDrama Umm,]] [[PrisonRape that sounds like something else...]]
* FingerlessGloves
* HouseboatHero: In the anime. Heíll get off it every now and then but every time Kyrieís group meets him, heís always on a boat. In the game and manga, he's the owner of the boat that the team uses to get around; while he gets out on dry land more often, his home is still technically on the Sand Sea.
* IcyBlueEyes: To mark him as the calmer, cooler-headed member of the team.
* IGaveMyWord: As a smuggler, once he's taken a contract, he ''always'' fulfills the delivery. [[spoiler:In the anime, the one time he didn't finish was when a young boy asked him to deliver a message to his older sister, then left before telling him who his sister was. He eventually figures out that it's Morte that the message was intended for.]]
* LaResistance: In the video game, he has his own team called the Golden Lions until he got captured and was forced to join the World Destruction Committee. In the anime, he helps the Golden Lions but doesn't get involved with the actual battles like in the game.
* MommasBoy: Is hinted to be one in the video game to the point that he ''really'' doesn't want his mother involved with what he's doing.
* MyNameIsInigoMontoya: One of his early lines (and his first Quip) in the video game is arguably a parody of this trope.
--> ''"I am Agan the Green... and the Red!"''
* NiceHat
* OnlySaneMan: Comes off as this.
* RecruitmentByRescue: In the game, the Front saves him from being beaten by Rajiv in the Sky Gaol. Averted in other adaptations: in the anime, he never officially joins the team, and in the manga, he's already a member at the start.
* RedheadInGreen: Fitting his quip about being "the green and the red".
* TheSmartGuy
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: In the game, his relationship with Morte is a non-romantic, brotherly variation. She drags him into her world annihilation mess, and he looks after her and makes sure she eats and doesn't get ''too'' crazy.
* TeamMom: Of a sort in the video game; his reason for agreeing to join the Front is to "keep an eye on you troublemakers". He's too laid-back to be a TeamDad, though.
* WhipItGood: Video game only as he does not carry a weapon at all in the anime or manga.
* XMarksTheHero: A cross shaped mark on the left side of his face. Subverted in the anime.

!!Rhi'a Dragunel
[[quoteright:249:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/f19d7ace6d0cfb41bd942a0ead5c79b4.png]]
->Voiced by: Creator/YuiIchikawa ''(Japanese game)'', Creator/YuuKobayashi ''(Japanese anime)'', Creator/MichelleJohnston ''(English game)'', Creator/TrinaNishimura ''(English anime)''

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 in the game; in the anime, she most certainly does ''not'' want the world to end and hates Morte for wanting to destroy everything. Despite being calm in the game, in the anime she's prone to becoming trigger happy.

* ActionGirl
* AxCrazy: In the anime.
* {{Badass}}: Her game counterpart but her anime counterpart has some good moments.
* TheChick
* CloudCuckooLander: In the video game.
* DumbBlonde: Averted in the anime; she's not the brightest, often choosing to shoot rather than speak, but she has moments of clarity better than Naja.
* DraconicHumanoid: Of a CuteMonsterGirl variety. Normally, she only has the horns and a series of small ridges down her back, though she's capable of growing a scaly tail and wings.
* ElegantGothicLolita: Her general clothing style, though her personality is anything but doll-like in the anime.
* GunsAkimbo: Her primary fighting style when she's not in dragon form.
* TheGunslinger
* HairDecorations: A tiny crossed pair of clips holding her bangs.
* HairTriggerTemper: In the anime.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons
* [[LastofHisKind Last of Her Kind]]: In the game. In the anime, she mentions family in Dragon Valley, though when we get there, it's got nothing but large skeletons (she doesn't react, though, so apparently the place always looks like that).
* MakeMeWannaShout: All of her magical attacks in the game have [[MusicalThemeNaming musical-themed names]]. Using them makes her scream and blast the enemy.
* MoreDakka + BeamSpam: Her in-game Requiem FinishingMove.
* TheNicknamer: She calls Felix Rex "Mr. Meow", Kyrie "Destruct", Elephas Rex "Woolly", and Naja "Barky" in the game.
* TheOjou: Treated as one in the video game by Felis Rex.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: HornedHumanoid with the ability to sprout wings and a tail, with the ability to see the future.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Thanks to being a human-shaped dragon. She's the smallest of the humanoid main characters, taller only than the teddy-sized Taupi, yet is capable of a large damage output with both her guns and transformed dragon form.
* PunctuationShaker: It's unknown if it's a dragon thing or just a Rhi'a thing. Some translations render her name as just Lia, averting the trope.
* PurpleEyes: To mark her as a dragon.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: She's at least 300 years old.
* {{Seers}}
* SexyBacklessOutfit: Normally, it shows off the little row of ridges down her spine, though it also allows her to sprout her wings and tail without ClothingDamage (her tail seems to grow from somewhere up around her kidneys rather than her pelvis).
* StockingFiller: With visible garters to hold them up, though they don't seem to be attached to a belt. Instead, they double as gun holsters.
* TooManyBelts: Her double-belt serves no real purpose.
* {{Tsundere}}: In the anime, she's Type A to everyone and Type B to Kyrie. Averted in the game.
* YouMonster: In the video game, she says this (and becomes her final Quip) to Lacertus Rex [[spoiler:upon finding out he wants to make a new world with humans as the base material]].
* ZettaiRyouiki

!!Naja Gref
[[quoteright:249:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/f9eb83ecbb8cfcff48b19ce7ff68b5d2.png]]
->Voiced by: Creator/HiroMizushima ''(Japanese game)'', Creator/DaisukeOno ''(Japanese anime)'', Creator/AwwabBukhari ''(English game)'', Creator/AnthonyBowling ''(English anime)''

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.

* BatmanGambit: In the anime, he does this to find the main characters.
* {{Bishounen}}
* DetachedSleeves[=/=]OperaGloves: Tight like gloves, but has no fingers like a long sleeve.
* FantasticRacism: See HalfBreedDiscrimination.
* FingerlessGloves
* FriendlyEnemy: 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.
* FurryReminder: In the manga, he wags his tail when happy.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Stated in the game that he's the son of the previous Lupus Rex and a human woman.
** HalfBreedDiscrimination: 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.
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn: In the video game.]]
* HeroicAlbino
* HonorBeforeReason
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Uses a set of wind and fire wheels.
* InSeriesNickname: In the game, Morte calls him "Professor" and Rhi'a later dubs him "Barky", which he dislikes.
* LittleBitBeastly: Like most of the Ferals, including full-blooded ones, he appears largely human with just a fluffy tail to set him apart from normal humans.
* ManInWhite
* MommasBoy: Hinted at in the game.
* MissingMom: He believes her to be dead since his late childhood/early teen years. [[spoiler:She's actually in hiding in Mechto, but he never quite realizes it even after speaking to her.]]
* NobleDemon: He's a nice guy, but it's expected seeing how his workplace treats him.
* NotSoAboveItAll: He's exasperated by Morte's bombastic behavior, but his VictoryPose is nearly as flashy as hers.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: In traditional red.
* [[spoiler: TheSixthRanger: In the game.]]
* SpecsOfAwesome: Is perfectly capable of keeping up with the rest of the cast without removing his glasses.
* StoicSpectacles
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman
* WhoWouldBeStupidEnough: 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.
