!!Tiara
->Voiced by: Creator/SayuriYamauchi (Japanese), Tara Sands (English)

* CainAndAbel: With Lena, in the best friends type.
* FieryRedhead: Tiara never backs down from a challenge. Why should she? She's stronger than ''everyone''.
* HairWings: The Geil Eldo Zamath transformation gives Tiara a pair of blood-red wings that double as her hair.
** PowerGivesYouWings
** PowerMakesYourHairGrow
** PowerDyesYourHair: Her hair goes from fiery red to blood red.
* IdiotHair: Has one, although it doesn't seem to fit her personality. This may be related to the ToneShift the series went through in development. ''Shamanic Princess'' was initially planned as a standard MagicalGirl with a NaiveEverygirl heroine.
* {{Joshikousei}}: Wears a blue sailor outfit when at school,.
* MagicalGirlWarrior
* MegaTwintails: Vast, poofy not-quite-ringlet examples. It's part of what makes ''Shamanic Princess'' a great cosplay challenge series.
* MsFanservice: She exhibits a laundry list of RuleOfSexy tropes:
** Her usual outfit features CleavageWindow, MagicSkirt and ZettaiRyouiki.
** AbsoluteCleavage in her SuperMode form, which leaves little to the imagination in the first place.
** Gainaxing, though mild.
** ClothingDamage -- tasteful, but fun.
* TheScapegoat: She gracefully accepts punishment for a mistake Graham made on a mission.
* ScreamingWarrior: Especially in the English version.
* SlasherSmile: She directs one at her rival after completing her first TransformationSequence, made even creepier by her weird eyes. It's one of your first clues that [[DarkerAndEdgier this is not your average]] MagicalGirl anime.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: Her SuperMode form has golden eyes with a black ring in the middle.
* {{Tsundere}}:Tiara knows who the strongest person in the room is. It's her. She doesn't ''have'' to play nice with anyone, and [[TauntButton she's not above letting them know it.]] But underneath, she just wants everyone to be happy.

!!Lena
->Voiced by: Creator/MitsukiYayoi (Japanese), Suzy Prue (English)

* BerserkButton: Give her the impression that you're betraying/abandoning your loved ones, and she'll thirst for your blood.
* CantCatchUp: Lena knows she will never be as powerful as Tiara, but [[AlwaysSecondBest that doesn't make it any easier to accept]].
* DefectorFromDecadence: Lena abandons her mission and sides with Kagetsu when she decides his motives are more noble than the faceless Guardian World elders.
** Then again, [[GreyAndGreyMorality everyone has noble motives in this series]].
* FashionableAsymmetry: Her SuperMode outfit.
* HimeCut: Fitting with both her elegant, mannered nature as well as her competence in battle. She also is given the "princess" title just like Tiara and is held by many in high regards.
* LadyOfWar: She looks elegant no matter what she does. It helps that she is a strictly {{long range|Fighter}} SquishyWizard.
* LoveConfessor: Expresses her UnrequitedLove for Kagetsu in a monologue.
* MagicMusic: Lena controls her powers by playing her flute.
** MusicalAssassin
* ProperLady: Her civilian dress is modest and she's friendlier than Tiara.
* ShyBlueHairedGirl
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Her SuperMode outfit [[BodyPaint looks like it was painted on.]]
* RapunzelHair: [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair Bluish-green hair]] down to her knees.
* TallDarkAndBishoujo
* YamatoNadeshiko
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Green Hair]]

!!Sara
->Voiced by: Creator/TomoSakurai (Japanese), Mary Anne Towne (English)

* ApocalypseMaiden: In the sense that Kagetsu is risking the integrity of the Guardian World on her behalf.
* [[spoiler:AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: She ascended during the TimeSkip (between eps.6 and eps.1) by merging with the Throne of Yord. It makes her...[[BlueAndOrangeMorality difficult to deal with]].]]
* IllGirl: The nightgown-like dress she's always shown wearing suggests this, and episode 5 confirms that she is indeed sickly.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: The first impression she gives is "sweet, innocent DistressedDamsel" [[spoiler:but the series {{subvert|ed}}s this as it reveals more about the Throne of Yord. If the Throne has darkness in it, then so does Sara.]]
* [[MalevolentMaskedMen Malevolent Masked Maiden]]: [[spoiler:The Throne of Yord (or Sara, or some combination of the two) switches forms at one point from a [[EldritchAbomination pile of tentacles]] to]] Sara in a black and red third eye mask.
* MysticalWaif
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The subtitles in the CPM release render her name as both Sarah and Sara. Considering that her name is written with [[UsefulNotes/JapaneseWritingSystem kanji]], Sara would be more appropriate.

!!Kagetsu
->Voiced by: Creator/KoichiYamadera (Japanese), Creator/CrispinFreeman (English)

* AntiMagic: He is a Neutralizer - his powers nullify magic. A Neutralizer's function is keeping the Throne of Yord pacified. Dialogue implies that Neutralizers are a lower tier in the Guardian World FantasticCasteSystem than magic users like Tiara and Lena.
* AntiVillain: Or so we initially assume.
* InternalizedCategorism: He regards himself as less capable because he is a Neutralizer, but he achieves a great deal through sheer force of will.
* KnightTemplarBigBrother: Stole the Throne to save his beloved sister Sara.
* MyGreatestFailure: He blames himself for Sara's imprisonment.
* OldFlame: He and Tiara dated before he stole the Throne of Yord.
* PeekABangs
* TallDarkAndHandsome: Swarthy, dark hair, dark eyes and in a LoveTriangle.

!!Japolo
->Voiced by: Creator/RicaMatsumoto (Japanese), P.M. Lewis (English)

* BattleButler
* BigEater: He's frequently shown eating - at one point he devours an apple that's as big as he is.
* CartoonyTail: It poofs up when finds the scent of the Throne of Yord.
* ExpositionFairy: Japolo helps to explain the setting for the benefit of the audience. There is a potentially justifying implication that Japolo and Tiara [[NewMeat haven't been partners for very long]], and that's why he wants to make sure they're both on the same page.
* KillerRabbit
* TheNoseKnows: He helps Tiara locate the Throne of Yord by sense of smell.
* TalkingAnimal: ''And'' a DeadpanSnarker.
* WeaselMascot

!!Leon
->Voiced by: Creator/HiroYuki (Japanese), Alvaro J. Gonzalez (English)

* {{Bishonen}}
* BodyguardCrush: On Lena
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: In his SuperMode form.
* FacialMarkings: A mole on his forehead

!!Graham
->Voiced by: Creator/RicaMatsumoto (Japanese), Tristan Goddard (English)

* BodyguardCrush: He exists to protect Tiara, and has some...''issues'' with her boyfriend Kagetsu.
* CoolMask: A pretty unique one that covers the left half of his face vertically.
* CuteMonsterGirl: A SpearCounterpart - Graham is a cute Gothic horror monster.
* NotGoodWithRejection: Graham is not the same after his painful failure to confess his feelings to Tiara. It's not clear if he's simply being reckless or if he as a death wish, [[spoiler:but he seems relieved when Kagetsu nullifies him.]]
* RubberMan: Graham attacks by splitting his arms into tentacles.
* {{Yandere}}: Clearly loves and wants to protect Tiara, and will kill anyone he sees as a threat.

!!The Throne of Yord
->Voiced by: Creator/RokuroNaya (Japanese), Tristan Goddard (English)

* [[spoiler: EldritchAbomination]]
* [[spoiler: GeniusLoci]]
* MacGuffin
* PortalPicture
* [[spoiler: ShapeshifterGuiltTrip]]
* SpookyPainting

!!Apolline Faria, Mimi Joyman and Susanna White
->Voiced by: Tomoko Maruo, Creator/YukaImai, Akiko Nakagawa (Japanese), Wendy Walker (Apolline), Creator/RachaelLillis (Mimi and Susanna) (English)

* HairDecorations: Susanna uses a headband.
* {{Meganekko}}: Apolline
* {{Muggle}}
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent
* [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Three Girls]]
* {{Tomboy}}: To a degree, Apolline. She has a deeper voice, short hair, seems to be somewhat more down to Earth than Susanna and Mimi...
