Characters from Futari wa Milky Holmes
Kazumi TokiwaA student of Holmes Detective Academy. Inspired by the heroism of Milky Holmes, she set up the vigilante duo Feathers with Alice. Her Toys creates magical bow and arrows, seemingly made of pure energy.
- Archer Archetype: Her Toys.
- Face-Heel Turn: Joins Color the Phantom due to her inferiority complex.
- I Just Want to Be Special: She notices that she's lacking versatility in using her Toys. It's exacerbated by the fact that other people notice that Alice is simply better than her though it's probably because Alice is a Visconti.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy with Alice.
- Vigilante Girl: Bring criminals (read: Color the Phantom) down to their knees so they can be easily arrested by the police force (read: Kokoro). In the story, this is something that is borderline illegal, as only detectives and the police can arrest.
Alice MyojingawaKazumi's best friend and the other half of Feathers. Her Toys create a magical shield. If Kazumi's arrows pass through it, their power will be amplified. Unbeknownst to her, her family come from a lineage of Gentlemen Thieves, the Visconti.
Color the Phantom
A group of Gentleman Thief with color-themed codename. They are strongly motivated to enforce the distinction between Thieves and Detectives. Their names are Violet Shadow, Hansel, Gretel, Crimson Lion, Yellow Black Hole, and Blue Hunter. Kokoro Akechi has been personally notified to stop their crime.
- Big Bad: Violet Shadow.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Yellow Black Hole and Pink Lovely Doom's true identities are the renowned detective Ryoko Komatsu and Kokoro's assistant Keiko Totsugawa. In the end Ryoko gives up her life of crime and tries to earn her detective license again.
- Colourful Theme Naming: Even Hansel and Gretel is black and white.
- Earthquakes Cause Fissures: Minus the earthquake. Yellow Black Hole can conjure a hole on the ground.
- Enfant Terrible: Hansel and Gretel, due to Parental Abandonment.
- Large Ham: Crimson Lion is prone to this, and their leader Violet Shadow is a close second.
- Master of Illusion: Blue Hunter, who easily creates a Me's a Crowd situation.
- No Name Given: We only get to know the codenames of Hansel, Gretel, Crimson Lion and Blue Hunter. And they are credited as White Gentleman Thief, Blue Gentleman Thief etc in the cast list.
- Visionary Villain: They are not just very good Gentleman Thief, they want to make sure that being a Gentleman Thief means something.
- Whip It Good: Crimson Lion's power.
- Would Hurt a Child: They don't hold back against the main duo. Zig-zagged for Hansel and Gretel are younger than feathers.
The Myojingawa FamilyAlice's big happy family. They consists of her dad, her mom, and her somewhat overly-protective big brother Shion.
- Big Brother Instinct: Shion objects to Alice having anything to do with the Detective world. In a twist, this is because the Myojingawa is a lineage of Gentleman Thief, not because she's unfit.
- Bishounen: Shion. All-around nice and good-looking guy.
- Gentleman Thief: All three of them. Though Madam Visconti is not exactly in the best shape.
- Mystical White Hair: It's implied that Shion has Toys of his own since he's Violet Shadow. Episode 11 reveals that he doesn't have Toys. The final episode reveals he never activated his toys.
- Power Gives You Wings/Winged Humanoid: Shion.
