! Characters from ''Futari wa Milky Holmes''


!! Kazumi Tokiwa
A 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.

* ArcherArchetype: Her Toys.
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:Joins Color the Phantom due to her inferiority complex]].
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: 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 [[spoiler:though it's probably because Alice is a Visconti]].
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy with Alice.
* [[VigilanteMan 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 Myojingawa
Kazumi'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. [[spoiler:Unbeknownst to her, her family come from a lineage of Gentlemen Thieves, the Visconti.]]

* BarrierWarrior: Her Toys.
* [[VigilanteMan Vigilante Girl]]: The other half of Feathers.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly girl with Kazumi.

[[folder:Color the Phantom]]

A group of GentlemanThief 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.

* BigBad: Violet Shadow.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Yellow Black Hole and Pink Lovely Doom's true identities are [[spoiler: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]].
* ColourfulThemeNaming: Even Hansel and Gretel is black and white.
* EarthquakesCauseFissures: Minus the earthquake. Yellow Black Hole can conjure a hole on the ground.
* EnfantTerrible: [[spoiler:Hansel and Gretel, due to ParentalAbandonment.]]
* LargeHam: Crimson Lion is prone to this, and their leader Violet Shadow is a close second.
* MasterOfIllusion: Blue Hunter, who easily creates a MesACrowd situation.
* NoNameGiven: 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.
* VisionaryVillain: They are not just very good GentlemanThief, they want to make sure that being a GentlemanThief means ''something''.
* WhipItGood: Crimson Lion's power.
* WouldHurtAChild: They don't hold back against the main duo. Zig-zagged for Hansel and Gretel are younger than feathers.



!! The Myojingawa Family
Alice's big happy family. They consists of her dad, her mom, and her somewhat overly-protective big brother Shion.

* BigBrotherInstinct: Shion objects to Alice having anything to do with the Detective world. [[spoiler:In a twist, this is because the Myojingawa is a lineage of GentlemanThief, not because she's unfit.]]
* {{Bishounen}}: Shion. All-around nice and good-looking guy.
* GentlemanThief: [[spoiler:All three of them. Though Madam Visconti is not exactly in the best shape.]]
* MysticalWhiteHair: It's implied that Shion has Toys of his own [[spoiler:since he's Violet Shadow.]] Episode 11 reveals that [[spoiler:he doesn't have Toys. The final episode reveals he never activated his toys.]]
* PowerGivesYouWings[=/=]WingedHumanoid: [[spoiler:Shion.]]

!! Keiko Totsugawa
Kokoro's new assistant, since Kokoro doesn't bring the G4 with her.

* BeleagueredAssistant: Kokoro is an almost-CowboyCop, and would not accept second opinion from anyone.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: [[spoiler:She is actually one of the colors.]]
* DrivesLikeCrazy: She would rather not to, but orders are orders.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler:Her toys.]]
