[[folder:Characters from Trauma Center: Under the Knife and Trauma Center: Second Opinion]]

! '''Caduceus'''

!! Derek Stiles (''Kousuke Tsukimori'')
!!!Voiced by: Creator/TakayukiKondo (JP), Creator/YuriLowenthal (EN)
The main character of ''Under the Knife'' and ''Under the Knife 2''. Decided to become a surgeon after his father died of an illness. Gifted with the Healing Touch, he was recruited by Caduceus after successfully operating on a patient with GUILT.
* AssKickingPose: It seems to be part of routine before starting an operation.
* BookDumb: Derek is really only kept around Caduceus because he's a genius surgeon, and definitely not for his skills as a doctor. Dr. Kasal even sends Angie along with him because he doesn't trust Derek in that regard (though it's rather pathetic that his nurse is a far better doctor than he is). Still, [[CharacterDevelopment he gets better]] by ''Under the Knife 2'', and is shown to be impressively competent by ''New Blood'' and ''Trauma Team'' (if only because you're not playing as him anymore). The first game does extensively examine this, at least. Derek's so-so bedside manner and mediocre diagnostics skills are acknowledged by other characters (he was never top of the class in med school and borrowed assignment answers) and nearly get him in very serious trouble while he's in general practice. Part of the reason he chooses to join Caduceus is because by that point he's aware his incredible surgical skills are far and away his best asset and an environment that focuses him on that exclusively will allow him to do the most good.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Is lazy and negligent a lot of the time, but is a skilled surgeon where it counts and [[spoiler: has the ability to slow down time]]
* {{Catchphrase}}: ''Let's begin the operation!''
* HealingHands: The Healing Touch counts as this.
%%* TheHero
* HeroicBSOD: After [[spoiler:failing to save Emilio's life]]. It's so bad that [[spoiler:he actually loses the use of his Healing Touch for a while]].
* TheIntern: Averted, the games start with him having just finished his residency.
* LastMinuteHookup: [[spoiler:With Angie, in the second game.]]
** And even then you need to really, really squint. Fanbase opinion varies. Widely.
* LegendaryInTheSequel: Maybe not legendary, but still, his actions in treating GUILT and PGS have made him known as a master surgeon in ''New Blood''.
* MyGreatestFailure: Just when he's operated on several patients and is ready to save him, [[spoiler:Emilio's antibodies aren't enough, and dies.]] [[HeroicBSOD Derek doesn't take it very well.]]
* TheMedic: His job.
* OlderAndWiser: In ''New Blood''.
* OneOfOurOwn: He gets infected with GUILT in ''Second Opinion'' and has to be operated on by Dr. Kimishima.
* PreviousPlayerCharacterCameo: Appears in an episode of ''New Blood'' and a postgame challenge, and can be heard in some of Naomi's flashbacks in ''Trauma Team'' [[spoiler: and he and CR-S01 discuss Rosalia taking on the disease she had.]]
* ShutUpHannibal: Every X-Mission starts with Derek openly rejecting Adam's statements.
* SuperTitle64Advance: In the English-language versions -- '''D'''erek '''S'''tiles. Nintendo '''DS'''.
* TimeStandsStill: [[spoiler:He manages to do this with his Healing Touch during the Savato operations. Definitely a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome.]]
* UnwittingPawn: In ''Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2'', [[spoiler:he becomes this for both Mercer and Reina]].

!! Angela "Angie" Thompson [[spoiler:Blackwell]] (''Ange Tonegawa [[spoiler:Amou]]'')
!!!Voiced by: Sachiko Nakamura (''Under the Knife'') and Creator/AyakoKawasumi (''Second Opinion'' onwards) (JP), Creator/WendeeLee (EN)
An elite nurse with an International Nursing License who transferred to Hope Hospital and became Derek's assistant.
* ArtEvolution: In the original ''Under the Knife'', she looked a lot like a teenager despite being 21. Starting from the remake ''Second Opinion'', she looks closer to her actual age.
* ButNotTooForeign: She is part-German.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: When Angie first appears, she arrives slightly late--because she either witnessed a man on a bus having a heart attack (''Under the Knife'') or witnessed a man getting hit by a car (''Second Opinion''), and in either case, she personally helped the man to the hospital and thus was responsible for the man receiving quick treatment. This establishes how hard a worker Angie is and how seriously she takes her job, in contrast to Derek's (initial) laziness.
* {{Foil}}: To Elena. While Angie is bolder and more skilled, she's rather emotionally immature and quick to anger, tears, and belittlement of others. Elena, on the flipside, is more composed, cheerier, and prefers to give the doctors positive encouragement instead.
%%* HospitalHottie
* {{Hypocrite}}: Early on in ''Under The Knife'' / ''Second Opinion'', [[spoiler: Angie criticizes Derek for "not showing proper bedside manner" to a patient (even though all he did was tell him "we'll do the best we can"). A few chapters later, she and Derek save the life of a teenage, suicidal GUILT patient named Linda Reid. After Linda snaps at the two hospital workers for saving her, Angie responds by angrily telling her that saving her was a mistake and that she should just die.]] [[SarcasmMode Way to follow your own advice, Ang.]]
* IKnowKarate: "I have studied Aikido."
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold:
** She's TheLancer, but good God, she is [[AlphaBitch such a bitch most of the time.]] She berates and blames Derek for [[spoiler:Emilio's death]] when in reality he was forced to make a very difficult call as a doctor during a terrorist attack-level emergency that [[TruthInTelevision mirrors a sadly common situation doctors go through on a near-daily basis.]]
** Another notable example is when she berates him for an admittedly negligent decision to not properly examine a patient so he could attend a symposium, telling him that he doesn't deserve to be a doctor... and then comes crying for his help when another patient suffers cardiac arrest and she doesn't know what to do.
* LastMinuteHookup: [[spoiler:With Derek, in the second game.]]
* ProperTightsWithASkirt: Frequently.
* ShipperOnDeck: A very subtle example, but after Derek [[spoiler:cures Dr. Greg Kasal of the Tetarti strain of GUILT]], Cybil says that [[spoiler:Dr. Kasal]] needs time to recover, even though he'll probably try to return to work right away. So Angie suggests that it looks like they're understaffed, so perhaps Cybil could assist [[spoiler:Dr. Kasal]]?
* ToBeAMaster: When Derek finally decides to transfer from Hope Hospital to Caduceus, Angie goes with him, both because the hospital thought Derek needed someone he was familiar with to help him, and, as Angie explains, because Angie wants to be a "master assistant" just as Derek wants to be a master surgeon.
* {{Tsundere}}: Starts out as a Type A towards Derek, but gradually warms up to him. She still shifts back every so often, though.
* UngratefulBastard: Her father [[spoiler: was forced to work with Delphi in order to stop her from being used as a test subject for guilt. However, another child was put in her place]]. Rather than be grateful that she was allowed to live in exchange for the overwhelming guilt this caused him, she just berates him for even thinking of doing it, as though she would have been fine with [[FateWorseThanDeath experiencing what those kids had to go through]].
* WhatTheHellHero: Delivers ''two'' of these in the first ''Trauma Center: Under the Knife'' (and its remake, ''Second Opinion''). The first one to Derek, when Derek's carelessness in refusing to analyze a patient in detail (so that Derek could attend a symposium) caused complications later on, and the second one to Linda Reid, because Angie believes that with so many people in the hospital struggling to live, if Linda wants to die then she ''should'' die, and make room for the others.

!! Nozomi Weaver / Naomi Kimishima (''[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Mira/Mila]] Kimishima'')
!!!Voiced by: Creator/AkenoWatanabe (JP), Creator/KirstenPotter (EN)
A foreign doctor working at St. Francis Hospital. Appears as a new main character in the Z chapter and Chapter 6 of ''Trauma Center: Second Opinion''. Her Healing Touch manipulates the patient's energies and raises vitals when performing actions. She also appears in ''Trauma Team'', as the protagonist of the Forensics mode. Now infected with an incurable disease, she works at the Cumberland Institute of Forensic Medicine to solve crimes.
* AbsoluteCleavage: Present in her ''Trauma Team'' redesign.
%%* AffirmativeActionGirl
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: In a way - Nozomi was disbarred as an official surgeon for "having magical powers", [[spoiler:which led to her jumping ship to Delphi]].
* AnimeHair: It is confusing as to how her ''Second Opinion'' hairstyle is physically possible.
* AssKickingPose: In ''Second Opinion''.
%%* [[spoiler:TheAtoner]]
* BadAssLongCoat: In ''Second Opinion''.
* BrokenBird: [[spoiler:Her work with Delphi combined with finding out about her terminal illness]] makes her become this in ''Trauma Team''.
* ButNotTooForeign: In the Japanese version, at least. She's a Japanese-American.
* {{Catchphrase}}:
** She tends to begin TheSummation by stating, "The dead shall speak. Let's put together the truth of what happened here." [[note]]''"...Shisha wa Kataridasu. Saa, Jiken no Shinsou wo Matomemashou"''[[/note]]
** In ''Second Opinion'', she tends to say "Here Goes" before starting an operation.
* TheCoroner: Takes up this role in ''Trauma Team'' as a forensic scientist.
%%* DefrostingIceQueen: In ''Trauma Team''.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: [[spoiler:After everything she gets put through, Naomi deserved getting a clean bill of health and the chance to get to take care of her adopted daughter.]]
* GratuitousEnglish: In the Japanese version. The names of her operations are in English, even.
* HealingHands: She has the Healing Touch as well, though hers works differently from Derek's.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: [[spoiler:Turned to Delphi after being stripped of her medical license due to her Healing Touch. As Delphi approaches its end, she then sneaks off with some GUILT samples to use as bargaining chips with Caduceus Europe, joining Derek in the battle against GUILT.]]
* HeroicBSOD: Naomi has one in ''Trauma Team'' [[spoiler: when Alyssa gets blown up.]]
%%* HospitalHottie
* OneOfOurOwn: [[spoiler: She is the patient for the final operation in ''Trauma Team''.]]
* MistressAndServantBoy: Her and Little Guy's relation ship in ''Trauma Team'' has shades of this.
* MsFanservice: In ''Second Opinion''. Downplayed in ''Trauma Team'' for the most part, but a lot of her cutscenes intentionally give the viewer an eyeful of boob.
* OlderAndWiser: In ''Trauma Team''.
* OneNoteCook: The only dish she can cook well is curry, which she learned during her time in India.
* ParentalSubstitute: [[spoiler: Naomi feels obligated to raise MoralityPet Alyssa after she gets nearly killed in a bomb meant for her]]
* PhoneCallFromTheDead: Has the ability to receive the final words of the deceased through her phone in ''Trauma Team'', by making contact with the corpse (or its remains).
* PopQuiz: All over the place in her portions of ''Trauma Team''.
%%* SixthRanger
%%* TheStoic
* SuperTitle64Advance: Her ''Second Opinion'' alias, '''N'''ozomi '''Wea'''ver.
* YourDaysAreNumbered[=/=]SoapOperaDisease: [[spoiler: After ''Second Opinion'', she's diagnosed with an incurable disease that leaves her with only about a year of life left, only for it to later combine with the Rosalia Virus. When she's cured of the mutated (aka "Twisted") Rosalia in the last operation, the disease dies along with it, leaving her to take care of her new adopted daughter, Alyssa.]]

!! Mary Fulton (''Momoe Furumura'')
!!!Voiced by: Chisato Sugawara (''Under the Knife'') and Mai (''Second Opinion'' onwards) (JP), Creator/WendeeLee (EN)
A veteran nurse at Hope Hospital. She serves as Dr. Stiles's assistant in the first few episodes of ''Under the Knife''. Because her husband was relocated to a different office, she had to leave to work at a different hospital. She is replaced by Angie Thompson. [[spoiler:She later makes a surprise appearance in ''Under the Knife 2'' to aid Derek recover from his depression.]]
* {{Catchphrase}}: She doesn't really have one, but fans have noted how often she berates [[spoiler:Derek]] with the "You're such a handful!" line in ''Under the Knife 2'', even if the in-game text says otherwise.
** MemeticMutation: When her spoken line reaches unbelievable levels. "YER SOSCH EH HENDFOOL!"
* ShipperOnDeck: To Derek x Angie, in ''Under the Knife 2''.

!! Tyler Chase (''Tougo Sakura'')
A surgeon at Caduceus. A friend of Derek's from medical school.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Well, can you really blame him?
* BigBrotherMentor: When we're first introduced to Tyler's sister Amy, Amy hasn't done her homework because she thinks it's "boring", but Tyler explains (with a bit of self-deprecation) that if she doesn't do it, she'll turn out dumb like her big brother, and she wants everyone to know how smart she is, doesn't she?
* BrilliantButLazy: He's a good doctor, but he doesn't like to work very much.
* DrillSergeantNasty: In the sequel, he's known to be very strict with his interns, who nicknamed him "The Demon".
* GeniusDitz: Despite not liking to work very much, as noted under BrilliantButLazy above, Tyler is very good at writing detailed theses. [[spoiler:Which is why Derek doesn't turn Tyler in for euthanasia after Amy is cured, as Tyler's skills can still be used to help save lives instead of ending them.]]
* ShipperOnDeck: To Derek x Angie.
* ShootTheDog: He was an euthanasist before Derek changed his mind [[spoiler:by saving his little sister's life.]] While slightly ambiguous, it's implied that he was doing this in an unofficial (and illegal) capacity.
* StrawmanHasAPoint: [[spoiler: As the titular Death Doctor]]. Despite this game's anti-euthanasia bent, he makes a lot of convincing arguments in favor of it before you cure Amy.

!! Victor Niguel (''Shuuya Aragaki'')
!!!Voiced by: Kazuya Niinou [[note]]The game's director[[/note]] (''Under the Knife'') / Creator/MasaakiKouda (''Second Opinion'' onwards) (JP), Creator/SpikeSpencer (EN)
Head of Caduceus's research division. Known as "the brain of Caduceus". Considers diseases as enemies on a personal level.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Is very strange and kind of a dick, but also one of the smartest people on the team, being directly responsible for synthesizing the Nanobots to destroy the Pempti GUILT and the sedative to help with the PGS symptoms.
* ClusterFBomb: The guy provides the greatest source for swear words in the game.
%%* DeadpanSnarker
%%* DrJerk
* GrumpyBear: Stands out as a cynic in a mostly idealistic series.
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:Has a minor one after Anderson's death.]]
* InsufferableGenius: Though the "insufferable" part isn't played up all too much.
* PerpetualFrowner: Hardly seen smiling.

!! Stephen Clarks (''Takuji Houshou'')
Caduceus's veteran surgeon.
* DependingOnTheArtist: In the stylized Under The Knife artwork, he looked severe and serious. The updated artwork shown here makes him... rather goofy.
* GameOverMan: His main role is jumping in to take over if you fail an operation.

!! Leslie Sears (''Yuno Itou'')
A nurse at Caduceus.
* DependingOnTheArtist: Originally, she looked young but matronly. The updated artwork plays up her youth.
%%* GenkiGirl
%%* HospitalHottie
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Her green hair sticks out in a cast with mostly normal hair colors.

!! Sidney Kasal (''Souji Kutsukake'')
Chief Director of Caduceus. Dedicated his life to medicine after his wife died of illness. Younger twin brother of Greg Kasal.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: More to show that he's tense than to be threatening, though.
%%* StoicSpectacles

!! Greg Kasal (''Shin'ichi Kutsukake'')
Chief surgeon at Hope Hospital. Later becomes the director after Robert Hoffman leaves for Caduceus. Older twin brother of Sidney Kasal.
* BigBrotherMentor
* GameOverMan: In the early operations of ''Under the Knife'' and ''Second Opinion'', he takes over if Derek allows the patient's vitals to empty out.
* OneOfOurOwn: He gets infected with Tetarti in the first game. He requests that Dr. Stiles perform the operation instead of Dr. Clarks, as the final test as his mentor.

!! Cybil Myers (''Sayaka Myoujin'')
!!!Voiced by: Mizuho Adachi (''Under the Knife'') / Fuyuka Ooura (''Second Opinion'' onwards) (JP), Creator/WendeeLee (EN)
Anesthesiologist at Caduceus and a former police officer, nicknamed the "Iron Vixen". In ''Under the Knife 2'', she has married Greg Kasal and works with him at Hope Hospital.
* ChekhovsSkill: [[spoiler:Her police officer training, as she dated a guy on the bomb squad and thus, in the present day, can advise Derek on how to dismantle a bomb.]]
* DrillSergeantNasty: When Derek first meets Cybil, Tyler jokes that Cybil is this, and that she'll never work with Derek again if he screws up. This is a joke on Tyler's part, and Cybil isn't really any stricter to Derek than the rest of the cast, except when she scolds him for panicking over [[spoiler:the bomb]], but that was just to shock Derek into attempting to solve the problem.
* NervesOfSteel: Cybil got the nickname "Iron Vixen" due to her ability to remain cool under pressure.
* OneOfOurOwn: She is infected with Paraskevi in the first game.
* ShipperOnDeck: To Derek x Angie, in ''Under the Knife 2''.

!! Robert Hoffman (''Iichirou Kitazaki'')
Director at Hope Hospital. Is gifted with the Healing Touch, but has retired from surgery. Later becomes Executive Director of Caduceus.
* BadassBeard: It becomes very spiky in his ''Second Opinion'' re-design.
* BigGood: Takes up Richard Anderson's role as head of Caduceus.
* TheComicallySerious: When Cybil and Greg Kasal take off to handle the incoming patients (all being sent to Caduceus) due to a big accident on the freeway in ''Under The Knife 2'''s 3-5, they leave him to take care of their baby in the meantime. HilarityEnsues.
* CoolOldGuy: Once he returns to wielding his Healing Touch, he is shown to be just as capable as Derek in treating GUILT.
* LetsGetDangerous: In ''Under the Knife'', he wears a somewhat vacant expression on his face until this moment, when he becomes much more serious-looking. This effect is also present in ''Second Opinion'', but it is much more subtle.
* OneOfOurOwn: He is the patient in the final operation of ''Second Opinion''.
* MyGreatestFailure: After losing a patient in quite a messy way, he never used his Healing Touch again.
* RetiredBadass: He had a Healing Touch just like Derek before... well... crap hit the fan.

!! Langston Miller (''Lewis Willer'')
The Chief Director of Caduceus Europe. He oversees the military operations in Africa and at Delphi's base.

!! Owen
The Chief Researcher at Caduceus Europe. He was in charge of a project to use "Z-Cells" from Adam's body as a regenerative treatment for patients.

! '''Delphi'''

!! Adam / Erick Von Raitenau (''President'')
Delphi's President, and a very bad guy. Put into suspended animation by GUILT.
%%* AdamAndOrEve
* BigBad: In the first game, his influence is felt in ''Trauma Center 2'' as well, and though he has no direct hand in the events of ''Trauma Team'' [[spoiler: the final boss is the result of Rosalia mutating due to Naomi's GUILT-born genetic disorder.]]
* BodyHorror: Just... look at him!
* DarkLordOnLifeSupport: The machine that's keeping him in suspended animation allows him to maintain his awareness and communicate past normal life expectancy.
* EvilGloating: "No matter how hard you try, you cannot overcome the power of Death!"
* EvilIsNotAToy: The sixth chapter of ''Second Opinion'' reveals that his body is preserved and is being used to create Z-cells that vastly improve patient recovery, even though this is essentially using Adam's unique GUILT strain for this purpose. Nozomi {{lampshade}}s this trope, saying that it's bound to backfire. True enough, this ends in a GUILT outbreak at the conference, and the reveal that the scientist leading development for Z-cells is a Delphi remnant.
%%* TheFundamentalist
* GameOverMan: If you fail one of the X operations.
--> "Mankind strives toward death...only a fool would deny that."
* AGodAmI: "...I, who have become the Great Destroyer Apollyon!"
* {{Hypocrite}}: Sure, Adam, it is wrong for doctors to allow people to live longer, but when YOU make yourself immortal, it's alright... Like every good hypocrite, Adam even has a rationalization ready - he claims that, in his "undead" state, he has placed himself outside the cycle of nature, so even if he doesn't actively better the world, he doesn't take anything from it either.
* ImmortalitySeeker: [[spoiler:He is also sustained by a secret eighth GUILT strain, "Bliss", that allows him to continue to function by the time of the game's events.]]
* LateArrivalSpoiler: ''Second Opinion'''s box art displays him rather prominently on the front.
* NietzscheWannabe: Yet he also thinks that he's serving God -- he even goes so far as to identify GUILT with the Seven Plagues of Revelation and proclaims he will smile as Derek and friends burn in Hell for opposing the Divine Plan.
* PlagueMaster: Develops the strains of GUILT that Delphi spreads across the world.

!! Kenneth Blackwell (''Kyouji Amou'')
!!!Voiced by: Creator/JojiNakata (JP)
A scientist forced to work with Delphi to create GUILT.
* AntiVillain: Sure, he may work for Adam, but he's so horribly ashamed about it that one can't help but feel sorry for him. [[spoiler:Not to mention, the only reason he accepted to join Delphi in the first place was to protect his daughter Angie...]]
* TheAtoner: After [[spoiler:Derek saves his life.]]
%%* {{Beard of|Evil}} [[AntiVillain Anti-Villainy]]
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Indeed..."
* DeathSeeker: [[spoiler:Before the operation that saved his life, Blackwell believed that getting infected with Savato and dying from it was his just desserts for his crimes.]]
* DisappearedDad: [[spoiler:Until meeting him in the events of the game, Angie never knew who her father was.]]
* FaceFramedInShadow: He appears in episode Z-4 of ''Second Opinion'', but his full face is not fully revealed until Derek confronts him at the climax of Chapter 5.
* HeelFaceTurn: After the events of the first game, he supports Derek and Angie whenever he can.
* ReluctantMadScientist: [[spoiler:He joined Delphi so that they would not use his daughter Angie as cultivation for GUILT strains.]]
* ReverseMole: [[spoiler:He joins the Hands of Asclepius in ''Under the Knife 2'' in order to investigate their activities and uncover the origin of Neo-GUILT.]]
* ThatManIsDead: [[spoiler:Insists that he no longer deserves to be called Angie's father from the moment he joined Delphi, and wishes to die from his own Savato infection.]]

!! Delphi Assistant/"Little Guy"/FBI Agent/Navel (''"Little Boy"'')
!!!Voiced by: Creator/HirokiTochi (JP), Creator/YuriLowenthal (EN)
A, uh, Delphi assistant in ''Trauma Center: Second Opinion''. He acts as Dr. Kimishima's assistant in the Z chapter. By the time of ''Trauma Team'', he's taken on a job at the FBI under an assumed name; when Naomi gets partnered with him once again, she quickly gives him the nickname "Little Guy".

* AscendedExtra: In ''Trauma Team''.
* BerserkButton: He's a music lover, so he (to Naomi's confusion) [[RantInducingSlight gets a little pissed]] when a valuable guitar gets damaged in a bombing.
* {{Bishonen}}: Particularly in ''Trauma Team'' where his hair is styled to make him look younger.
* [[DoggedNiceGuy Dogged (Semi)Nice Guy]]: He has a plain crush on Dr. Kimishima, who usually either shoots him down or mocks him. However, as the player progresses through Forensics, Naomi will begin to flirt back every now and again.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Averted, when speeding along a mountain road in ''Second Opinion'', he explicitly mentions he's had training in aggressive driving. [[spoiler: The journalist he's trying to ditch hasn't, though, and suffers the consequences.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: Works with the FBI in ''Trauma Team'' after the fall of Delphi.
* MistressAndServantBoy: His and Naomi's relationship in ''Trauma Team'' has shades of this.
* NoNameGiven: He is never referred to by his actual name.
* RefugeInAudacity: A terrorist who goes into hiding by... joining the FBI.
* VoiceWithAnInternetConnection: Supports Naomi in her forensics investigation through a voice chat, and even helps her further inspect certain pieces of evidence.

! '''Patients'''

!! Linda Reid (''Sayoko Ooga'')
A teenage girl who wishes to die. Suffering from the GUILT Kyriaki, and later post-Kyriaki.
* DrivenToSuicide: Not that she actually did anything about it. GUILT would have done it for her.
* DubInducedPlotHole: A minor example, but her age in ''Under the Knife 2'' is listed as 17, the same as in the previous game, despite the three-year TimeSkip. This is because in the first game's Japanese version, she was only ''14'' years old. The translation upped her age to 17, but that wasn't taken into account by the second game's translation.
* EmoTeen: In her defense, depression is a symptom of GUILT infection.

!! Amy Chase (''Rin Sakura'')
Tyler Chase's younger sister. Was suffering from the Deftera strain of GUILT.
* CheerfulChild: She's usually drawn smiling, and she's pleasant and friendly to talk to. [[spoiler:Her being a cheerful child actually becomes a plot point, as she decides to undergo a risky surgery she knows has a low chance of succeeding because she wants to live and work hard like her big brother.]]
* GirlishPigtails
* HeartwarmingOrphan: Her purpose in the story is to drive home to the player how arbitrary GUILT is and how much it makes innocent people, such as sweet little girls like Amy, suffer. [[spoiler: So the player will be more motivated to take down Adam, the guy who ''created'' the disease, rather than get emotionally invested in destroying something that essentially has no ill motives.]]
* HiddenDepths: [[spoiler:She's the one who snaps her big brother out of his "death is better" mindset. How? By consenting to a difficult operation performed by Derek which doesn't have great odds of succeeding, just because she wants to live and work hard together with her big brother.]]
* IllGirl: [[spoiler: But Derek does manage to cure her eventually.]]

!! Richard Anderson (''Katsuhisa Hibiya'')
The Secretary of Health and Human Services and the Executive Director of Caduceus.
%%* CoolOldGuy
* HopeSpot: [[spoiler:Despite all of Caduceus' - and the player's - efforts, Anderson's body gives out shortly after he is freed of Pempti. However, Anderson anticipated this might happen and donated, in advance, all the results of the treatment on his body to help fight GUILT in the future.]]

!! The Sinners
[[caption-width-right:150: One of the seven, Emilio.]]

Seven children from around the world that were kidnapped by Delphi and [[spoiler: used as living incubators of the GUILT strains that Derek has been treating. In the original ''Trauma Center 1,'' they are operated on one at a time and then taken into protective custody, but in ''Second Opinion,'' this doesn't happen due to the events taking place in one expositionary cutscene.]]
* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler:These kids are purposely left in a coma, on the brink of death, in order to cultivate GUILT strains.]]
* AscendedExtra: Emilio, in ''Under the Knife 2'', is the one Sinner who gets a name and portrait.

[[folder:Characters from Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2]]

!! Adel Tulba
!!!Voiced by: Creator/ShintaroAsanuma (JP)
A young doctor from the African Republic of Costigar. He's recommended to Caduceus by Derek Stiles, but leaves to join the HOA.

* AxCrazy: [[spoiler:Under the influence of the Neo-GUILT Sige, he comes close to using the [[BulletTime Healing Touch]] to shank Derek with a scalpel]].
* {{Bishonen}}: His light build, full lips, large eyes and long hair make him easy to mistake for a woman.
* BrokenPedestal: [[spoiler:Finding out that Dr. Stiles, his mentor, couldn't (or from Adel's perspective, wouldn't) operate on him shatters their friendship.]]
* DecoyProtagonist: The beginning of the story is told more from his perspective than Derek's, for the benefit of new players who aren't already familiar with the setting. [[spoiler:When they have a falling out, the perspective stays with Stiles while Adel goes his own way.]]
* DudeLooksLikeALady
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:Because of brainwashing, but he himself admits later that it would not have worked if it hadn't [[MoreThanMindControl exploited dark feelings he already had]].]]
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:For his above FaceHeelTurn. It turns out he always felt it unfair that he was unable to completely help his people, while Derek and others were so successful because of access to such good resources and tools. That's why he took a fake Healing Touch and joined the dark side, so to speak, to improve his own skills.]]
* GoodPowersBadPeople: [[spoiler:"''Dr. Stiiiiles... Do you know what else the "Healing" Touch is good for...? It's also good for... KILLING!''"]]
* GreenEyedMonster: [[spoiler:His envy of Derek's Healing Touch and the feeling that he CantCatchUp to such natural talent drives his actions for a good portion of the game.]]
* OneOfOurOwn: He has to be operated on twice. [[spoiler: The first time, Dr. Stiles is in the middle of a BSOD and can't handle it.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[spoiler:After joining the Hands of Asclepius. Since they were already brown, it can be hard to figure out why he's suddenly falling into the UncannyValley.]]
* SlasherSmile: [[spoiler:He shows a terrifyingly twisted grin when he goes crazy.]]
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: [[spoiler:Sige gives him the power to use the Healing Touch. It also drives him stark raving mad when it breaks out of its dormancy.]]

!! Heather Ross (''Ayaka Isshiki'')
!!!Voiced by: Creator/MamikoNoto (JP)
A nurse at Elysium, a facility created to look after GUILT patients. She has the same International Nursing License as Angie.

* SurvivorGuilt: [[spoiler:During the Elysium outbreak, she pleads with Derek to operate on Emilio first. Derek chooses to operate on her first instead, going with Emilio's belief that his GUILT antibodies should buy him some time to survive. Emilio doesn't make it, and Heather is distraught by this news.]]

!! Reina Mayuzumi (''[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Rena]] Mayuzumi'')
!!!Voiced by: Creator/YukoKaida (JP)
President of Acropolis Pharmaceutical.

%%* ChristmasCake
%%* {{MissFanservice}}
* OlderThanTheyLook: She's 35, but looks like a young woman. [[spoiler:This is a side-effect of being infected by a dormant Aletheia. When Aletheia activates, her old appearance comes back with a vengeance, making her look far ''older'' than she is.]]
* RapidAging: [[spoiler:When the dormant Aletheia in her body is awakened, she suddenly shrivels into an old woman. After she is operated on, she returns to her youthful appearance]]
%%* [[spoiler:TheVamp]]

!! Patrick Mercer (''Akihiro Nagasawa'')
!!!Voiced by: Creator/MasaakiKousa (JP)
CEO of the Hands of Asclepius. A bureaucrat with an ambition to reform the medical system.

* AntiVillain: [[spoiler:Seeks to save his comatose wife on top of improving the abilities of people worldwide... through the use of a GUILT variation.]]

* CoolOldGuy: [[spoiler:Or maybe not...]]
* LoveMakesYouEvil: [[spoiler:Delves into development of Neo-GUILT in hopes of finding a way to save his comatose wife.]]
* Sucksessor: He and the Hands of Asclepius gain increasing fame over the course of the second game that they begin to overshadow Caduceus even in the domain of GUILT treatment. [[spoiler:Then the final chapter happens, where the source of increased aptitude is revealed to be his developed Neo-GUILT.]]

[[folder:Characters from Trauma Center: New Blood]]

!! Markus Vaughn
!!!Voiced by: Creator/RikiyaKoyama (JP), Creator/TroyBaker (EN)
One of ''Trauma Center: New Blood'''s two protagonists. Capable of using the Healing Touch. His Healing Touch is the same as Derek's.

* TheAtoner: [[spoiler: Not for an ''intentional'' misdeed, but his research was misused to create Stigma, so he is partially responsible for Stigma's existence.]]
* DeadpanSnarker
* KickTheSonOfABitch: He refuses to let [[spoiler:Vahkushti]] blame his actions on anything but himself and pretty much tells them to just shut up and die already.
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: A mild example as he's too serious to squee, but he does have high respect for Derek, and mentions there's a lot of things he'd like to ask a master surgeon like him.
* NoSenseOfDirection: Not as bad as some comical cases, but Valerie points out he has all the cardiac blood vessels memorized, but can't follow street directions.
%%* PermaStubble
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue one.

!! Valerie Blaylock
!!!Voiced by: Creator/YumiTouma (JP), Creator/KimberlyBrooks (EN)

* AmbiguouslyBrown: She has fairly dark skin, but you can't really attribute any specific ethnicity to her based on her looks.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red one.

!! Elena Salazar
!!!Voiced by: Creator/RyokaYuzuki (JP), Creator/KarenStrassman (EN)
A nurse who was a patient of Markus Vaughn as a child. She followed him to Alaska for a follow-up operation, then became his assistant.
* AscendedFangirl: In-universe. She went into medicine after being inspired by Markus performing surgery on her as a child, and is utterly delighted when she ends up as her hero's assistant.
%%* DarkSkinnedBlond
* {{Foil}}: To Angie. While Angie is bolder and more skilled, she's rather emotionally immature and quick to anger, tears, and belittlement of others. Elena, on the flipside, is more composed, cheerier, and prefers to give the doctors positive encouragement instead.
* UnfortunateNames: "Salazar" is not only the given name of a fictional villain (Salazar Slytherin in the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' books), but also the surname of a real-life dictatorial head-of-state (António de Oliveira Salazar, prime minister of Portugal from 1932 to 1968 and founder of the authoritarian [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estado_Novo_(Portugal) Estado Novo]] regime). Not exactly the most pleasant namesakes a person can have.
* WiseBeyondHerYears: She may only be 20, but she's very wise and strong-willed for her age due to her illness, something Valerie notes.

!! Miles Hoover
!!!Voiced by: Ikuya Sawaki (JP), Creator/DanWoren (EN)
The Director of Montgomery Memorial Hospital.

* OneOfOurOwn: He has to have tumors extracted from his small intestine. He retires soon afterwards (He had planned on doing this anyway, but his surgery sped up his decision).

%%* {{Jerkass}}
* ManOnFire: Gets caught in an act of arson, and has to be treated.
* OneOfOurOwn: He suffers from burns and has to get a skin graft.
* RedHerring: [[spoiler:He acts like such a jerk the player will probably assume he's up to no good and is going to screw someone over. Then it turns out later on that he's the one who ''gets'' victimized, and he has to be treated for skin burns after being attacked.]]
* SmugSnake: His default expression is a smug smirk, and his haughty attitude does not go unnoticed by the protagonists.

!! Frances Chen

A doctor at Concordia Medical Institute.

!! Lloyd Wilkens

!! Irene Quatro
!!!Voiced by: Creator/GaraTakashima (JP), Creator/MaryElizabethMcGlynn (EN)
The director of Caduceus USA.

* AwesomenessByAnalysis: [[spoiler:Is the first character to notice [[{{Foreshadowing}} Markus is hiding something]], possibly about Stigma. Irene notices by looking closely at Markus's body language. She gently but firmly tells him to be more honest and trusting with the team.]]
* BigGood: Since the first moment she's onscreen, she's shown to be a virtuous, if not shrewd (invokes Federal government authority to get them to join Caduceus, as a form of conscription) surgeon: she always regrets putting Markus and Valerie in the middle of danger and is usually sympathetic and supporting to them. That degree in Psychology helps.
* CuttingTheKnot: In light of the new threat of Stigma, Irene pulls rank to recruit Dr. Vaughn and Dr. Blaylock immediately.
* {{Expy}}: Of Sidney, with the only difference being that Irene is far more open and talkative than he is.

!! Kanae Tsuji
!!!Voiced by: Kaori Akashi (JP), Creator/KarenStrassman (EN)
A surgeon at Caduceus USA.

%%* {{Meganekko}}
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Starts out with polite respect for the heroes, but is otherwise being very distant and cold. [[spoiler:She grows out of it quickly after they save her cousin from a car accident and they escape from their captors. During both of these events, [[CharacterDevelopment she harbors intense guilt]] [[ItsAllMyFault for yelling at her cousin Koshiro so harshly]] and for being unable to help Markus and company when they are kidnapped.]]
* ScaryShinyGlasses: When she gets mad or serious.

!! Leslie Newman
!!!Voiced by: Creator/SanaeKobayashi (JP)
A nurse at Caduceus USA.

!! Justin Everett
!!!Voiced by: Masuo Amada (JP), Creator/GregEagles (EN)

* GameOverMan: Usually the person who takes over if you screw up.
* OneOfOurOwn: The very first thing you do upon meeting him is perform an emergency surgery on his cholelithiasis.
* TooDumbToLive: Not exactly this trope, but Irene Quatro mentions he has been in pain from his gallstones for ''three years''.

!! Robert Cromwell
!!!Voiced by: Tomohisa Aso (JP), Creator/KirkThornton (EN)
Head of research at Caduceus USA. Talks in a very long-winded manner with lots of scientific-sounding words.

!! George Marshall
The Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security.

!! Leonardo Bello
!!!Voiced by: Creator/KenjiHamada (JP), Creator/DerekStephenPrince (EN)
A skilled surgeon who knows the Healing Touch and performs operations live for the TV show "Miracle Surgery". Highly critical of Caduceus.

* CookingDuel: Bizarrely, a surgery duel.
* FakeUltimateHero: He unveils his Healing Touch (slow-time flavor) to much fanfare, but it appears to be rather weak - he can't sustain it for long, he passes out foaming if he does use it for too long, and it's implied Markus's is much more effective.
* InsufferableGenius: A deliberate example; he's convinced himself that if his criticism forces Valerie and Markus to improve, then it will have served its purpose. Since his criticism is ''completely off-base'', however, this is delusional on his part.
* SmugSnake: He makes no attempts to hide the fact that he doesn't think much of Caduceus, and thinks of ''himself'' as the greatest surgeon in the country.
* WearingAFlagOnYourHead: Not in the actual game, but in his profile picture on the official site, his tie has an American flag pattern.

!! Guy Davidson
!!!Voiced by: Creator/{{Chafurin}} (JP), Creator/DanWoren (EN)
A very excited television host on Miracle Surgery. Following the closure of Miracle Surgery, he reappears later in the plot as a news reporter.

* AnnouncerChatter: Proves to be rather talkative in Miracle Surgery.
* CombatCommentator: Or rather, "surgery" commentator, but fits nonetheless, especially given how intense surgeries can get.
* LargeHam: Comes with being an announcer. Even when he's a news reporter, he still hams it up, albeit much more subdued, given the situation.
* MostAnnoyingSound: InUniverse, his loud comments about the on-going surgeries piss Markus and Valerie off.
* NoIndoorVoice: Always seems to yell everything he says, much to Valerie's chagrin. He mellows out considerably when he's later seen reporting on the Stigma outbreak.

!! Zachariah "The Kid" Kidman
!!!Voiced by: Wotoya Kawano (JP), Creator/DougErholtz (EN)
A mysterious criminal who wants to profit from Stigma by selling it as a biological weapon.

* AllThereInTheScript: His first name is never actually spoken in the game.
* ArmsDealer: Gets involved with Stigma when attempting to sell it as a weapon.
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:He wanted to make money out of Stigma by selling it as a weapon, but as a result, he got caught up in the conflict that was rising in Culuruma, and died in one of the battles. For extra irony, he also got infected with two strains of Stigma prior to his death.]]
* PsychopathicManchild: [[spoiler:He attempts to drown the heroes to death by sealing them in a contraption based off a ''kid's toy''!]]
%%* TheTropeKid

!! Leland Phoenix

An intimidating man working for Kidman. He oversees Markus and Valerie's operations and gives them the serum to treat Onyx.

!! Jean-Paul Massey
!!! Voiced by: Daisuke Kirii (JP)
A shady man who snuck into Concordia Medical Institute. He was later hired to kidnap Markus, Valerie, and Elena for Kidman. He tried to run away afterwards, but was shot down and had to be operated on.

!! Maria Estrada
!!!Voiced by: Creator/KarenStrassman (EN)
A young doctor in training from Culuruma.

* OneOfOurOwn: Operated on for her Vaimahse Fever shortly after her introduction.
* WhatAnIdiot: In-universe. Markus and Valerie call her out on skipping her Vaimahse Fever immunizations for very flimsy reasons (she believed she was already immune to the disease as she was born and raised in Culuruma) when she really should have known better.

!! President Moreno (''Javier Chaves'')
President of the South American country of Culuruma.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: In the Japanese version, this controversial South American president is named Javier ''Chaves''. He's the only character from New Blood whose name was changed in the English version.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: He genuinely appreciates Caduceus's help and supplies everything they need. While he does twist their arm to force them to treat his soldiers, he willingly negotiates terms with Markus over it.

!! Ramsey Ramirez
A former Major General who leads the Culuruma Liberation Front.

!! Master Vahkushti
!!!Voiced by: Creator/JurotaKosugi (JP), Creator/DerekStephenPrince (EN)
The leader of Parnassus. Real name: [[spoiler: Ray Kerensky.]]

* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:Goes by a pseudonym of "Ray Kerensky", head of an implant manufacturer who advised Markus on an operation that took place in the game's early chapters.]]
* DeathEqualsRedemption: Defied by Markus, who pretty much throws his speech of penance back in his face and tells him to die already.
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:He went crazy because, after realizing his dream of becoming a doctor and coming back home to treat refugees, the army tried to have him assassinated. He then mistakenly assumed everyone in the world was like the people who betrayed him, and he decided that humanity's only true purpose was chaos.]]
* LoadBearingBoss: [[spoiler:Cardia was the only thing keeping him alive.]]
* TheManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler:Revealed to be the one who ordered Professor Wilkins's kidnapping and continued Stigma development.]]

He's lost his memory of who he is and has been allowed to redeem himself by performing operations for Resurgam First Care.

A select few people have given him the FanNickname 'Numbers' as well.

* AllThereInTheManual: His real name is only revealed in the Japanese guidebook.
* AmnesiacDissonance: Played with--he's aware of his previous crimes, but without any knowledge of why he committed them, this only drives him to become TheAtoner. [[spoiler: Later outright subverted when it turns out "his" previous crimes weren't even his in the first place.]]
* BadassNormal: Unlike his predecessors, who have the "Healing Touch", he has no special powers, but is still able to save patients' lives.
* {{Bishonen}}: He has a ''really'' androgynous and handsome face.

%%* TheComicallySerious
%%* DarkAndTroubledPast
* DeceasedParentsAreTheBest: Subverted. [[spoiler:His biological parents despised him for his "lack of emotion" and thought that he'd "kill them one day". His adoptive father, Albert Sartre, treated him better than his real parents.]]
* {{Determinator}}: If you're a patient of his, he will cure you. No exceptions.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: He's never addressed by his serial number, but settles to being called "Doctor" or "Kid".
%%* TheHero
* HumanPopsicle: Kept within a refrigerated cell where the temperature is kept at zero degrees Celsius (AKA 32 degrees Fahrenheit, at which water freezes), in order to inhibit the growth of bacteria. Gabriel ironically points out that several forms of bacteria can still be grown at this temperature.
* InconvenientHippocraticOath: [[spoiler: It happened twice. The first time it happened, CR did not think to escape, although Ian thought he would. The second time, the trope is invoked word for word. CR sees Ian on the surgery side and the exit on the other. In both cases he chooses to help the patient.]]
* InstantExpert: Goes from 8 years in cryogenic prison to the operating room perfectly able to save lives, despite the fact that he was imprisoned at the age of 16 and would not have been allowed to practice surgery since then.
%%* InstitutionalApparel
* LongerThanLifeSentence: After [[spoiler:the Cumberland incident]], CR-S01 was arrested and received a 250-year life sentence.
%%* ManInWhite
* MrFanservice: He fits on all the qualifications.
* NoNameGiven: Was only by his prisoner number, CR-S01. Japanese materials note his actual name as [[spoiler:Erhardt Muller]].
* NotSoStoic: It's revealed in a bonus clip that the reason he doesn't smile is because he's spent so much time in a cold atmosphere that he actually has ''difficulty'' smiling. Said bonus clip features him practicing trying to smile and act friendly, with hilarious results.
* ParentalAbandonment: Besides his parents, who died inexplicably, his adopted father vanishes at the same time as he is sent to prison.
* TheStoic: Hardly ever changes his expression.
%%* TraumaInducedAmnesia
* TroubledButCute: Which is hilariously subverted in his [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments bonus scene.]]
* TheUnsmile: He has a hard time smiling.
* [[WhenSheSmiles When He Smiles]]: In the English guide manual/Japanese cover and his epilogue before the final episode, he is shown to be capable of smiling. Cue the squealing of fangirls.
%%* YouAreNumberSix

!! Tomoe Tachibana
!!!Voiced by: Creator/ShizukaIto (JP), Creator/StephanieSheh (EN)
TheProtagonist of the Endoscopy mode in ''Trauma Team''. The heiress to a wealthy Japanese family. She rebelled against her status by studying abroad in America as an endoscopist.

* ArrangedMarriage: Tomoe's father nearly forces her into one in order to decide the clan succession. Luckily she manages to get out of it thanks to the timely intervention of Chief Patel & Gabe and her father's [[ContrivedCoincidence lung condition suddenly acting up.]]
* {{Catchphrase}}: "The way of honor." [[note]]''"(Doing something negatively, i.e. refusing friend's help) wa Shidou Fukakugo"'' (Literally: Unprepared for the way of chivalry.)[[/note]]
* {{Expy}}: Her relationship with Maria heavily mirrors [[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} Chie and Yukiko's]].
* LadyOfWar: Erm, of endoscopy.
* MeddlingParents: Her father is one.
* MartialMedic: Training is the way of honor.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: She's one-third endoscopy specialist, one-third {{ninja}}, and one-third {{Samurai}} with crazy warping skills. Her Path of Honor is no joke, that's for sure.
* NonIdleRich: She's an endoscopist.
* {{Ojou}}: Heiress to a wealthy family.
* RebelliousPrincess: Downplayed; rebellious ''non-royal heiress''.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Defied. She rebelled against her Japanese heritage by studying abroad in America. Ironically, however, she has the ''personality'' down pat; she defies the trope only because she's not committed to her family above all else.

!! Hank Freebird
!!!Voiced by: Creator/MasashiSugawara (JP), Creator/DaveMitchell (EN)
The protagonist of the Orthopedics mode in ''Trauma Team''. A former soldier in the US Special Forces with a strong sense of justice. He grew tired of taking lives and decided to start saving them as an orthopedic surgeon.

* AbsoluteCleavage: A male example.
* {{Awesome McCoolname}}: '''HANK. FREEBIRD.'''
* BeingGoodSucks: The central trope his story.
* TheBigGuy: This is even the name of his first mission.
* ButtMonkey: He (as Captain Eagle) is hated by the public, no one at the hospital understands his mindset of good and humanitarianism, and [[spoiler: Claire, his patient for whom he truly cares, is shot in a freak mall shooting (though she got better).]]
* {{Catchphrase}}: ''Rock solid!'' [[note]]''"Banjaku da!"''[[/note]]
%%* CutHimselfShaving
%%* ElvisImpersonator
* EyesAlwaysShut: To the point that he needs an AlertnessBlink to signify that he's come out of his CatapultNightmare.
* GentleGiant: His defining character trait. He's TheBigGuy, but he loves flowers, has a soft spot for a young patient of his, and performs operations requiring precision and caution rather than speed.
%%* HeroWithBadPublicity
%%* HonorBeforeReason
* LargeHam: '''Captain Eagle!'''
* LoveFreak: '''I am the ambassador of love and justice!'''
* MadeOfIron: Over the course of the game, Hank [[spoiler: uppercuts a man through a ceiling, gets shot, and uses himself as a conduit to bridge two electrical cables.]] The only real casualty of all that is his clothing.
* SaveTheVillain: A gunman shoots several people in a shopping mall--one of them a friend of Hank's--and then leaps off a balcony and breaks his back after revealing that he was driven to his crime by despair over his apparently inoperable cancer. Hank not only protects the fallen man from the angry crowd, he personally operates on the man's damaged spine ''and'' extracts the cancerous tumors from his spinal cord.
%%* {{Superhero}}

!! Maria Torres
!!!Voiced by: Creator/HitomiNabatame (JP), Creator/AmandaWinnLee (EN)
The protagonist of the First Response mode in ''Trauma Team''. A hot-blooded paramedic who has quick reflexes and a desire to be a hero. However, she lacks patience with others and dislikes teamwork.

* ActionGirl: Maria Torres has the most frantic gameplay of any character in ''Trauma Team'', since she has to treat multiple patients at once. Her personality fits this. Bonus points for single-handedly stopping a bus from falling and crushing two other main characters.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Her name implies some kind of Spanish or Hispanic descent.
* [[ClusterFBomb Cluster D-Bomb]]: The greatest source of swearing in ''Trauma Team''.
* {{Expy}}: Look at [[http://safebooru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=357917 this picture]] of Maria. Now look at [[http://safebooru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=202557 this picture]] of [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Chie Satonaka]]. Hilariously, Creator/AmandaWinnLee also voices a character in ''Persona 4'': Chie's best friend, Yukiko.
%%* HotBlooded
%%* TheLancer
* MsFanservice: Her first appearance features her topless, with only a towel (barely) covering her breasts.
* PreMortemOneLiner: "Suck on some antivirus you bastard! You won't kill off my town!"
* ParentalAbandonment: [[spoiler:Was at the same orphanage as Rosalia.]]

!! Gabriel "Gabe" Cunningham
!!!Voiced by: Creator/KeijiFujiwara (JP), Creator/TravisWillingham (EN)
The protagonist of the Diagnosis mode in ''Trauma Team''. An intelligent diagnostician with great powers of deduction. After years of work, he became desensitized to human life. His bitter attitude has caused him to be separated from his family.

* BerserkButton: In the episode 'The Simplest Truth', RONI finally pushes it. Seems like ever since an incident of his past, Gabe doesn't take kindly to be doubted or called out for not being honest with himself or others.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: [[spoiler: Does this in the epilogue. Depending on your view, it may also be a small SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome or SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}}.]]
* ChewingTheScenery: Gabe tends to be over the top normally, but pronounced during "Proud One", when Gabe is unable to run a diagnosis on Samuel, [[spoiler: since the military is covering up what happened to him.]] Spyware within RONI prevents him from making any diagnosis, but he is able to have "friendly chats" and make "meaningless friendly observations." Taken to epic levels when Gabe gets Samuel to take his shirt off.
* TheChewToy: [[spoiler: Let's see here: He was almost hit by an arrow in Tomoe's storyline, got hit by a bus at a mall, his 'safe' landing got him in the trash at the last chapter, etc.]] The developers surely '''love''' messing with him, and for our amusement.
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: Implied to have a dream about [[spoiler:the Rosalia outbreak when he is first introduced]].
* DrJerk: A mild case compared to Victor of ''Second Opinion'', but still.
* {{Expy}}: Admit it, you thought he was [[Anime/CowboyBebop Spike]] when Atlus first announced the game.
* FingerGun: In case the Spike Spiegel shout-out wasn't obvious enough, he strikes this pose when he's escaping on the helicopter.
* LethalDiagnosis: Patents start out only suffering from one or two mild symptoms such as a cough, fatigue, moments of disorientation, etc. after being diagnosed are told they have some kind of tragic disease. Thankfully CR-S01 is more then a match for any disease.
* MeaningfulName: Dr. ''Cunning''ham is nothing if not cunning.
* NoSmoking: He smokes a lot in the actual game, but his cigarette is absent in much of the publicity material.
%%* PermaStubble
%%* TheSmartGuy
%%* TheSnarkKnight
* SuicidalGotcha [[spoiler: Does this when trying to escape to create a diversion, complete with the [[Anime/CowboyBebop Spike Spiegel Bang gesture]].]]
* TeamDad: Sure, he has his own issues, but he has a heart-to-heart with just about every other member of the team at some point during their storylines.

Nurses at Resurgam First Care.

* ThoseTwoGuys: Recurring background characters in various scenes throughout the game.

Short for Rapid Operation Networked Intelligence terminal. A state of the art AI and disease database, which helps Gabe with his Diagnosis.

* TheAntiNihilist: She becomes this following her CharacterDevelopment.
* AsYouKnow: Her programming requires her to give a short tutorial the first time she uses a feature, even if the user is a trained doctor.
* LiteralMinded: Takes a while to pick up on Gabe's figures of speech.
* [[MrExposition Ms. Exposition]]: Explains a lot of her functions and tests to Gabe (and the player) during the Diagnosis missions.
* MundaneUtility: In Gabe's bonus scene, RONI is used as a cooking guide.
* RobotBuddy: Designed to function as one to her assigned doctor.
* VoiceWithAnInternetConnection: Quite literally, as she assists with tests, procedures, and diagnosis.

! Other Characters

!! Ian Holden
!!!Voiced by: Creator/JurotaKosugi (JP), Creator/KeithSilverstein (EN)
The FBI agent who captured CR-S01 years ago. Keeps an eye on him at all times.

* ItsPersonal: Subverted. His wife and daughter were killed in the Cumberland College attacks, but he watches over CR-S01 simply because it's his job, and has long since decided CR-S01 isn't the real culprit.
* SinisterShades: Never seen with his sunglasses off, and it makes him look more intimidating when combined with his cold attitude towards CR-S01.

!! Nicole Summers
!!!Voiced by: Creator/{{Rinko}} (JP), Creator/LauraBailey (EN)
A private school student and a member of her school choir. She was admitted for diagnosis because of breathing problems.

* {{Fanservice}}: Minor example, but at one point in order to examine her, Dr. Gabriel Cunningham has to ask her to lift up her shirt so she can examine her breathing. The player gets to see her bra while she's doing this, and RONI has to scold Cunningham by pointing out that this is embarrassing the patient and Dr. Cunningham needs to be more tactful.
* GrowlingGut: On the second examination her gut growls. Gabe notes that it is perfectly normal to be hungry.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Apart from her ambitious music aspirations, of course.

!! Jacob Tillman
!!!Voiced by: Creator/KimiyoshiKibe (JP), Harvey Atkin (EN)
The Assistant Secretary of the HHS. He collapsed in his house and was dragged in for diagnosis, to his annoyance.

%%* DarkSkinnedBlond
%%* {{Determinator}}

* FanDisservice: Gabe ''has'' to examine this insufferable man's {{Gonk}} body.
-->'''Gabriel''': 'This is not the most pleasant thing I've looked at recently...'

* GrumpyOldMan: Proves to be rather uncooperative as Gabe tries to take his medical history.

* PatrioticFervor: He rarely misses an opportunity to loudly proclaim how much he loves his country.

!! Shelly Brooks
!!!Voiced by: Creator/EriNakao (JP)

%%* BeautyMark
* HelloNurse: Most of Gabe's comments when conducting a visual examination are about how attractive she is.

!! Sandra Liebermann
!!!Voiced by: Creator/ReiIgarashi (JP), Creator/LauraBailey (EN)
The [[SerialKiller "Raging Bomber"]] responsible for a series of bombings around Portland. Her M.O. was to send out an audio voice clip that, gleefully and arrogantly announced a description of her next target. Her first victim was an unnamed/unseen politician, then an unnamed/unseen singer, and then tennis player Aidan Posner. As it turns out, [[spoiler:she had hired college student Stephen Eldred to provide voice talent for the threats (which would fool investigators into falsely presuming that she was a male); but when Eldred [[{{Blackmail}} blackmailed]] Lieberman, she had Eldred unknowingly describe himself (a Caucasian male) on the final bomb threat before having him killed off for good. She was later killed in an explosion at an airport upon confrontation by authorities.]]

!!!Voiced by: Creator/SoraKuwakado (JP), Creator/LauraBailey (EN)
A young girl seen "sleeping in bloom" in ''Trauma Team'''s opening, who soon begins appearing to Maria as a ghost. [[spoiler:In reality, she is Albert Sartre's adopted daughter, CR-S01's adopted sister, and the young girl from the orphanage Maria saved when she was a kid. She harbors the "Rosalia Virus" and its corresponding antibodies, making her immune to virtually any disease. Was killed before the game began.]]

* FamousLastWords: [[spoiler: Can also be subverted as a {{Catchphrase}} as she says throughout Maria's story: ''Beginning...'']]
* TheImmune: [[spoiler:The Rosalia Virus infection she harbors prevents other pathogens from causing disease in her.]]
%%* [[spoiler:MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter]]

* MysteriousWaif: Appears from time to time, speaking of a "beginning". What this entails is eventually revealed in the final chapter.
* [[NiceGuy Nice Girl]]: [[spoiler:From what we learn about her from the audio recordings we see of her, she seems to have been this. Her only wish was that her father, Albert Sartre, would succeed and cure everyone of disease. That she's a nice girl is also in stark ironic contrast to the fact that her deceased body almost caused an epidemic disaster.]]
* PersonOfMassDestruction: [[spoiler:Posthumously. Her death paves the way for the eventual Rosalia Virus outbreak.]]
* PosthumousCharacter: Long dead by the events of the game.
* RepetitiveName: [[spoiler:'''Ros'''alia '''Ros'''sellini]]

* SealedGoodInACan: [[spoiler:Ironically, she also possesses the same antibodies that prevent her from succumbing to the same disease ''and'' any other illness in the world, which led Albert to retrieve those sought out antibodies but unfortunately got infected while doing it. The doctors are only able to retrieve the cure against the virus itself]].
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: [[spoiler:Admittedly, it's more Albert Sartre's fault for shooting her, but Rosalia's body ends up being the originating point for a disease that then gets spread by monarch butterflies and almost wipes out Portland.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: Rather difficult to discuss without spoiling the final chapter of ''Trauma Team'' due to her role in it.
