The eleventh-graders who attend Ryouou High, whose lives are disrupted by the arrival of Homura and Kyubey.

%%* AntiMagic: In Kyubey's words, she has the power to repel and reject magic.
%%* ApocalypseMaiden: Overlaps with...
%%* BarrierMaiden: She and Tsukasa are the "multiversal focal points" that hold all universes together.
* EnemyWithin: A bit of Vittoria apparently exists within her, pushing her to ruin her life. After the essence of Vittoria is forcibly extracted and absorbed by Desideria, this is no longer the case.
%%* KatanasAreJustBetter: Her signature weapon as a [[MagicalGirl Star]], Kurokami.
%%* NamedWeapons: [[MeaningfulName Kurokami]], her katana, named after the color of Homura's hair.
* {{Tsundere}}: As Konata puts it in her [[{{Troll}} inimitable manner]], "You're ''deredere'' for Akemi and ''tsuntsun'' for me, huh?"
--> '''Kagami''': ''[[IresembleThatRemark Shut up!]]''
* PowerGivesYouWings: The shadows of black feathered wings emerge from her back when she's seriously pissed off. Her Star form makes the wings solid, with points of starlight.
%%* StarCrossedLovers: With Homura, after the latter dies.

!!Tsukasa Hiiragi Star Black

%%* AntiMagic:
%%** In a different way than Kagami's AntiMagic - rather than nullify magic, she can absorb it like a magnet.
%%** And Desideria learns the hard way that she can also throw absorbed magic ''[[ReturnToSender back]]'' once she gains her powers as a full-fledged Star.
%%* BarrierMaiden
%%* BetaCouple: With Miyuki, [[spoiler:actually the Second in disguise.]]
%%* DemonicPossession: By the Seventh, after she takes it into her body.

!!Miyuki Takara Star Pink

%%* {{Meganekko}}: Her glasses are hiding a secret...
* NamedWeapons: Heshioru, a magic book that links to her glasses and transforms into a hammer.
* TheSmartGuy: This figures into her Star powers: her book and glasses can gather and display the information that she collects from multiple sources.
%%* WhiteMage: What she crafted her Star outfit after... though Konata points out that her actual powers are more in line with a RedMage.

!!Homura Akemi
The 2007 version of Homura. Kagami visits her after the future Homura dies, in order to cure her illness.

%%* IllGirl: As the original Homura was prior to contracting and becoming a Puella Magi. Kagami fixes this.
%%* ReplacementGoldfish: Kagami consciously avoids using this version of Homura as this.
%%* ShrinkingViolet: In contrast to her future self's aloof behaviour.
%%* WalkingSpoiler: Shows up only at the epilogue, after the other Homura dies.


[[folder:Characters from the Puella Magi universe, 2012-2013]]

The Puellae Magi, [[MagicalGirl Magical Girls]] from a parallel universe set two years after Madoka's [[AbstractApotheosis ascension]]. Most of them were killed during the war with Vittoria. Kyubey is listed here too, of course.

!!Homura Akemi[=/=]Star Violet

%%* AloofDarkHairedGirl: At first.
* BrokenBird: The events of her past haven't been kind at all to her emotional state. Being raped by the Second has only made things worse, though Kagami is helping her recover.
* DarkMagicalGirl: Very much so. She's willing to use extreme measures to protect Kagami, [[spoiler:even breaking her heart.]]
%%* DarkAndTroubledPast
* DefrostingIceQueen: Being around Kagami brings out her ''deredere'' side. Awww.
%%* GoOutWithASmile: Following the below trope.
* HeroicSacrifice: Refuses to let Kagami contract to spare her from a FateWorseThanDeath, knowing full well she'll die otherwise from Soul Gem corruption.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Her motivation for rejecting Kagami, and then for stopping Kagami from making a wish to save her, knowing full well she will die without it.
* MyGreatestFailure: She blames herself for failing to MercyKill her universe's Kagami when she had the chance, and thinks of all the death and suffering that followed as her fault. [[BreakThemByTalking The Second]] takes full advantage of this.
%%* SecondLove: With Kagami.
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: Her mission this time is to prevent the catastrophe that befell her world from ever happening again.
%%* StarCrossedLovers: With Madoka first, and then Kagami after she herself dies.
* TheStoic: Though more free with her emotions than before, she's still calm and unflappable when she needs to be.


* BlueAndOrangeMorality: As is typical of his species. However, he seems to be showing more human traits, possibly as a result of all the time spent around Homura and the disaster his old world suffered through.
* HowDareYouDieOnMe: Says this in his own way when Homura is about to die from Soul Gem corruption, pressuring her to let Kagami contract.
* LackOfEmpathy: As expected from Kyubey, of all people. However, it's clear he 'cares', in some form, for Homura, and tries to convince her to let Kagami wish her back to life to no avail.
* LastOfHisKind: He was left behind when the other Incubators abandoned Earth, and is the only one of his species in the Lucky Star universe.
* WeaselMascot: Konata calls him a "fairy", [[SpitTake leading Homura to choke on her drink.]]

!!Oriko Mikuni

%%* SupportingLeader: She brought all of the Puellae Magi together, uniting them for a greater cause.
* TookALevelInKindness: Because Kriemhild Gretchen can no longer exist in the new world, Oriko is less of a WellIntentionedExtremist and is now almost completely heroic.
* VisionsOfAnotherSelf: In her dreams, she saw her [[Manga/PuellaMagiOrikoMagica villainous self]] in the other timelines that Homura went through.

The Demon of Lust. A shapeshifter with an affinity for mirrors. [[spoiler:She traps Miyuki inside the lens of her glasses and impersonates her for most of the story, seducing Tsukasa in order to feed on her Heart. Her true form is a catlike ''thing'' made of tongues and eyes. After accidentally reading the mind of the Ninth and discovering his true murderous intentions, she set in place an elaborate plan to replace herself with one of her Spawn and fake her own death... only to return and kill the Ninth when everyone least expected it.]]

%%* BadassBoast
%%-->''If I must join them, I will at least perish in a way that befits me. Let the Puella Magi come with her armory. Let the focal point strike me with her sword. Before I die, I'll crush their skulls between my teeth, drink their marrow, crack open their ribs…''

* TeamKiller: Perfectly willing to kill the others of the Nine, though the only one he actually kills off is the Eighth.
