True Companions: Even before the formation, they've known each other for years.
Star Lass (Roxanne "Roxy" Kaizen)
The series protagonist and team leader. Though she has strong, heroic ideals, this Japanese early twenty-something has trouble acting out on them due to her slothful personality. A social disorder combined with years of emotional insecurity has caused her to almost always mask her true feelings, though her friendships with Astra, Claire, and especially Rio, has gradually improved her. She initially has the power to control solar/light energy, but later learns to use general cosmic energy, which she was unknowingly using to help her fly.Her favorite bands are Soundgarden and Alice in Chains.
My Wave - Solar and light energy manipulation
Black Hole Sun - Powerful antimatter blast. Used in conjunction with Moon's The Unforgiven.
Boobs of Steel: The females in this series have rather modest sized breasts. Star Lass, about a D-cup, is the physically strongest of her peers.
Hidden Buxom: Although her loose street clothes and Star Lass outfit don't make her look as filled out.
Brilliant but Lazy: She never put much effort into school work, despite maintaining a B-average throughout high school even during her BSOD period. She also is usually reluctant about almost always going out to save the day, when all she wants to do is relax and stay home to watch TV or play video games (or other games) with Rio. Of course, she normally concedes because she's aware it's the right thing to do.
The Chick: Despite her oft-masculine attitude as Star Lass and her wardrobe consisting of clothes much more common for men (wears t-shirts, short jeans, even boxers), she actually has a very effeminate personality when she's comfortable in her environment and usually wears make up.
The Nose Knows: She has a greater sense of smell than the others, but it's more of a symptom of her autism than a superpower.
Older Than They Look: Her face makes her look like a teenager despite being in her early 20s; although her body is more developed like a young adult's. In the future, she's in her early to mid 40s despite looking around 30.
You Fight Like a Cow: Often trash talks her enemies, especially if she's familiar with them. She believes it helps with developing her social skills.
Willpower (Macario "Rio" Rodriguez)
The jack of all trades. Roxy's Hispanic boyfriend/fiancé/husband, his unbreakable will allows him to do almost anything as long as he believes he can do it. He's often dim and acts otherworldly, but also has an uncanny flow in battle and helps Roxy deal with her awkwardness. Despite his supposed lack of intelligence, his power to control his inner energy is driven by his vast creativity.His favorite bands are Yes and Foo Fighters.
Tenacious D - Life-force manipulation
Owner of a Lonely Heart - Aura/energy/emotion reading
Immortality: Of the Resurrective Immortality variety, his willpower is so potent that it revives him to full power within the next 24 hours. Even so, he will still age and eventually die of natural causes.
Roxy's Pakistani best friend. Her defeat resulting in a coma at the hands of Anti Lass heavily motivated Roxy to keep fighting for others. She wakes up three years later, but has grown embittered after learning her assailant's identity and status as a successful villain. Though she is still mostly friendly, she has become more aggressive in combat as Black Moon. She uses the power of the moon to perform various powers.Her favorite bands are Metallica and Disturbed.

Down on the Upside - Gravity manipulation
The Unforgiven - Darkness manipulation
Black Hole Sun - Powerful antimatter blast. Used in conjunction with Star's My Wave.
Blood Knight: Looks forward to a fight, even before she changed.
Break the Cutie: Most of the changes she's awoken to have not been kind to her stances on right and wrong.
Thou Shalt Not Kill: Like the others, though she's most definitely the closest one to break it if she's out of options. The only reason she actually holds back is because of the rule set by Roxy, who's still her best friend.
Roxy and Astra's other closest friend, the non-Hispanic White. She often speaks in a bored, monotone voice and uses her smarts to create gadgets for the team, including a cybernetic arm she uses, while also capable of controlling metal. Holding disdain towards the idiocy surrounding her life, she finds solace in Roxy and Astra's resolve to do something and joins their team. Despite her frigid front, she cares deeply for her friends and little brother and will be ready to fight for her life to keep them safe.Her favorite bands are AC/DC and Black Sabbath.
Hells Bells - Metal manipulation

She has negation and time powers to contrast her sister's sunlight and space powers.
Zero Chance - Negation

Ambiguously Evil: While she claims to be evil, she doesn't do anything too illegal. Her reasons are shrouded in mystery.
Morality Pet: Let's just say Dave's affection for her isn't exactly one-sided.
Power Nullifier: However, she can only negate attacks she can see. Lunar Lass' ability to sneak up on her is a reason why she left to prevent her from interfering.
Time Master: Contrasting her sister's space control, albeit limited so it doesn't seem overpowered.
Delusionist (Dave Badr, AKA David Waters)
Astra's older brother. He developed a crush on Sable and, when she left after supposedly killing his sister, joined her. After they returned, he's revealed to be completely devoted to her cause. Even though he cares deeply for Astra, his loyalty to Sable will always come first. He uses his illusory powers to delude and deceive his enemies, hence the alias "Delusionist".
Easily Forgiven: Averted with Sable. Even after she explained she merely made Astra's mind go dormant for three years and explained her motives to him, he still traveled with her so that she wouldn't try anything even remotely villainous. It wasn't until she rescued him from certain death that his trust in her was given back.
Face-Heel Turn: He used to be a valuable ally to his sister's superhero trio.
Lunacy: Not unlike his sister, but he has different powers normally associated with the moon in fiction.
A former businesswoman/crime lord. Her seething hatred for anyone who crosses her has earned her many enemies. This includes Merle, whose parents she murdered over a grudge she held against them in their youth. After her defeat, Sable seized her company and crime monopoly as she's forced to work under her in order to keep out of jail. Her powers, unlike most people's, was acquired via accident.

She became Drunk with Power and ruled the earth with an iron fist, using her fully realized spacial abilities to warp between dimensions and conquer various planets.
Motive Decay: This incarnation of Roxy is thousands, if not millions, of years old. Though she vowed to conquer worlds to assure they're safe from evil, the reason is a blur to her. All she remembers is that she has to rule over every planet she can find, having forgotten her goal eons ago.
A once-normal young black lesbian whose life took a turn for the worse when students from her school broke into her home, sexually violated her, and killed her mother. When she learns her best friend (and secret crush) set it up in an attempt to "fix" her homosexuality, she accidentally uses her newly awakened powers to kill her.

Affectionate Nickname: Refers to Alice as his "princess", although she's embarrassed of it when it's used in front of others.
Despair Event Horizon: He's taking the incident that spurred his Start of Darkness much harder than his daughter is, who was a victim herself. Mainly because he experienced first hand his only child being violated and his beloved being killed before his eyes.
Scary Black Man: He can be very frightening, especially if you get on his bad side.
A young religious teen who attempted to "fix" her close friend Alice's homosexuality. After a chain of events this resulted in her accidental death at the hands of said friend.
