The entire group shares these traits:

Syaoran

Voiced by: Miyu Irino (JP), Jason Liebrecht (EN)

Syaoran is a young archeologist who is in love with Sakura, his childhood friend and the princess from the Kingdom of Clow. When Sakura's memories are scattered throughout parallel dimensions, Syaoran goes on a quest to recover them, giving all of Sakura's memories involving him as a payment to travel. Revealed to be a clone of Syaoran created by Fei Won Reed, and becomes obsessed with regaining the feathers. Killed by Fei Wong Reed, but reincarnated by Yuuko and Clow Reed in the past as the real Syaoran's father.

Crossover character from Cardcaptor Sakura.

Sakura

Voiced by: Yui Makino (JP), Monica Rial (EN)

Sakura is a princess from the Kingdom of Clow who has her memories separated from her body to parallel dimensions in the form of feathers. All of her memories of Syaoran are completely erased to enable him to travel across the worlds to find her feathers. Revealed to be a clone created by Fei Wong Reed. Killed by the clone Syaoran, but reincarnated as the original Syaoran's mother.

Crossover character from Cardcaptor Sakura.

Kurogane /Yōō

Voiced by: Tetsu Inada (JP), Christopher Sabat (EN), Yumiko Kobayashi (Young - JP), Luci Christian (Young - EN)

Kurogane is a rough-mannered ninja from the world of Japan, who is sent away from his world by Princess Tomoyo in order to have him discover his true strength. He gives up his sword Ginryū as payment to Yuuko in exchange for traveling through dimensions and get back home.
  • Artificial Limbs Ends up getting one after sacrificing his left arm to save Fai in Celes. In a subversion of the usual pattern, it is NOT a perfect replacement and causes him pain.
  • Badass: As a fanfiction puts it, anyone who hacks off his own arm without batting an eye is fucking hardcore.
    • Badass Cape: Wears one of these in his default ninja outfit.
    • Handicapped Badass: Cuts off his own arm to save Fai's life, and drags the mage out of a collapsing dimension one-handed while blood pours down his side. Loss of a limb in no way diminishes the badassedness of the moment.
  • Battle Couple: With Fai.
  • Berserk Button: Several, Fai's cutesy nicknames being the most obvious.
    • He reacts extremely badly to anyone who chooses to give up on life, particularly when it's Fai.
    • He also has a thing about people being eaten alive by monsters, since that was how his father died.
  • Berserker Rage: There's a reason Tomoyo-hime worried about Kurogane becoming an unstoppable murdering machine. It's happened before, when his mother was killed before his eyes and his father eaten by demons, due to FWR's machinations. The Imperial Army was sent to stop one grieving boy. They died too.
  • Berserker Tears: Happens during the flashback of his childhood in Recourt, when his parents were murdered and Suwa burned.
  • Blood Knight: Has shades of this early on, due to his obsession with strength, but is more balanced by the end of the series.
  • Break the Cutie: He was a sweet, happy child when he was younger... until his mother got sick and was murdered by Fei Wang Reed, his father was eaten by demons, and his home was razed to the ground, causing an breakdown of epic proportions.
  • Childhood Friends: With Tomoyo.
  • The Comically Serious
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Not quite on the same level as Fai's, but pretty damn horrible all the same.
  • Determinator: Once Kurogane makes up his mind about something, nothing and no one will stop him from going through with it. Fai learns this the hard way, in Tokyo, with Kurogane's decision to save his life against his will. And again in Celes when Kurogane willingly cuts off his own arm to get Fai out alive. Now that's determination at its finest.
  • Dope Slap/Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: He will punch out anyone that does something he thinks is stupid, usually being too self-sacrificing. Given the nature of this group, it happens often. So often, actually, that Fai picks up on the habit.
  • Expy: With his fighting style, his background and unfriendly personality he has shades of Zoro from One Piece. Complete with the same English VA.
  • Fan Nickname: Big Doggy, Daddy
  • Grumpy Bear
  • Hair Contrast Duo: Fay and Kurogane's dynamic initially plays off like this; he is the moody, cynical brunet to Fay's ditzy light-hearted blond. Subverted when Fay's personality is actually much darker than it initially seems.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Non-fatally, though it could have easily killed him
  • Highly-Visible Ninja: Probably too Badass to be anything else.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Tomoyo is barely half his height.
  • In-Series Nickname: Mostly by Fai and sometimes Mokona: Kuro-tan, Kuro-pin, Kuro-run, Kuro-rin, Kuro-pu, Kuro-chi, Kuro-wanwan, Kuro-daddy or just Daddy, Big Puppy and many, ''many'' more. Interestingly enough, most of the suffix based nicknames that Fai gives him are cutesy, girly nicknames that Japanese schoolgirls give one another in an effort to appear cute- hence his aggravation.
    • In the English dub, we get Kurgyburger.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Would probably like to believe he's not a Nice Guy at heart.
  • Lady and Knight: Knight to Tomoyo's Lady, in an arrogant sorta way.
  • Leitmotif: Break the Sword of Justice. One should probably note that this and Fai's "Strange Names" are probably the only themes of the series that are completely separated from the normal style the soundtrack has going on.
  • Life or Limb Decision: He sacrifices his arm to save Fay.
  • Mr. Fanservice: He's Tall, Dark and Handsome and cool as a cucumber.
  • Near Death Experience: A conveniently-timed one allows Tomoyo-hime to tell him how to get Fai out of Celes.
  • Ninja: Not as hidden as we're used to but he makes up for it by being an absolute Badass.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Spends most of his time scowling. Not so much when he's fighting, though...
  • Power Limiter: The "curse" Tomoyo places on Kurogane which will decrease his strength if he kills anyone. This is subverted because we find out after Celes that it's really a protection charm and the stuff about his strength diminishing was a prophecy about the consequences of killing Ashura.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Certainly appears to be the most morally ambiguous of the heroes at first glance, but inverted as you started to realize he's the most grounded among them.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: For the first few chapters he seems to be playing this straight, but it's ultimately subverted. He's actually the only member of the team who isn't a spy.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Manly Man to Fay's Sensitive Guy.
  • Ship Tease: With Fay....all the time and everywhere.
  • Slasher Smile: Sports one from time to time, especially when he's fighting.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Really resembles his father.
  • Team Dad: Has this title applied by Fai unwillingly, but it fits surprisingly well, especially by the end of the Infinity Arc.
  • Traumatic Superpower Awakening: And HOW. With the death of both parents in one night, he picks up his family's sword, wipes out ALL the demons in sheer rage before Amaterasu and co. arrives to deal with them (who he mostly trashes as well). And ever since then he's super capable of handling multiple enemies at once.
    • His inability to keep it in check is why Tomoyo sends him away in the first place.
  • Tsundere: Even with his Grumpy Bear persona, he shows himself to be capable of surprising gentleness. His tsundere tendencies are mostly reserved for Fay.
  • Undying Loyalty: He may sometimes go against her orders, but Kurogane is utterly devoted to Tomoyo.
    • Also, to the Travellers themselves. He would do anything to keep them safe, even leave his princess again. Though, given his personality and actions, he wouldn't die for them if there was another way because then he would have to leave them unprotected.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: As a child he was adorably idealistic and innocent.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Fay.
  • Yaoi Guys: With Fay. Like most CLAMP pairings it's not made explicit, but their body language around each other in their crossover appearance in xxxHolic after the end of the series is pretty telling, and Word of God has pretty much confirmed it.

Fay D. Flourite/Yuui

Voiced by: Daisuke Namikawa (JP), Vic Mignogna (EN)

Fay is a powerful magician from the country of Seresu. He travels to Yuuko on his own accord after making his king Ashura-ō fall asleep. He wishes never to return to his country, so he gives up a tattoo on his back in exchange for Mokona to travel through dimensions.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Shows attraction to women a few times earlier on in the series but his focus seems to be on Kurogane.
  • Angsty Surviving Twin
  • Battle Couple: With Kurogane.
  • Beneath the Mask: his cheery, laughing mask is dropped altogether for his inner personality following the events of Acid Tokyo. Also has shades of Becoming the Mask, where Fai himself mentions that acting the way he did around the children became natural and instinctual.
  • Berserk Button: For someone so easy going, he has quite a few of them. Don't hurt his surrogate daughter Sakura if you want to live. He's extremely protective of everyone in the main group, including R!Syaoran and Kurogane, as the Celes arc proved. Ashura-ou deliberately endangered first C!Sakura, then R!Syaoran, and finally Kurogane so as to send Fai into a murderous rage that would have resulted in a beat down of epic proportions if Fai hadn't been magically-crippled by the loss of one of his eyes and half his magic.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Always laughing? Check. Always joking? Check. Takes nothing serious? Check. Provides most of the Comic Relief? Check. Extremely powerful magic and extensive close combat and weapon training? Double Check. Conclusion: Do not, I repeat, ''do not'' threaten the people he loves or he'll make you regret it.
  • Bishōnen: Probably the best example in the whole series.
  • Born Unlucky: The Curse of the Twins. He's probably not actually, the people of Valeria just thought he was.
  • Break the Cutie: His backstory.
  • Broken Bird
  • Can't Live Without You: After his transformation into a vampire he can't live without Kurogane's blood.
  • Cat Smile
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Holy crap this guy has had it bad!
  • Death Seeker: Some of his earliest childhood memories are his imprisonment in the tower and having a Madness Mantra of "I want to die, I want to die" over and over again. He doesn't defend himself properly in battle which leads to Fai having injuries that could've been avoided, much to Kurogane's chagrin. And when C!Syaoran rips out his eye he actually begs Kurogane not to save him, and he holds a deep grudge against the other man for a long time when he does.
  • Deus Angst Machina: And how! Check the entry over there for more details.
  • Emergency Transformation: Gets turned into a vampire in the Tokyo-Arc
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Grows his hair out after the events in Tokyo, signifying the darker turn in his personality. Subverted at the end of the series where he keeps the longer hair but is much happier mentally.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Subverted. He actually lost half of his power along with the eye he lost.
  • Eye Scream: When Syaoran's seal breaks, the newly soul-less clone rips out Fai's eye to gain half his magic power.
  • Fan Nickname: Big Kitty and Mommy, both of which he used for himself in the series.
  • Genre Savvy: Has shades of this. He uses Sakura's luck to make sure they have everything they need in Spirit.
  • Girl in the Tower: Gender Flipped Fai (Yuui) and his twin were imprisoned at the bottom and top of a tower, respectively, surrounded by unclimable walls, where the dead bodies of prisoners were discarded.
  • Heroic BSOD: Happens a few times over the course of the series, such as when Sakura is "killed" in Infinity, and when Ashura is killed in Ceres.
  • Hair Contrast Duo: Initially plays the flighty cheerful ditzy blonde to Kurogane's angry brunette, but it's later subverted when Fay's true colors begin to shine through.
  • Handicapped Badass: Not as much as Kurogane and Syaoran but he kicks serious ass in the final battle before he gets his magic and eye back.
  • I Hate You, Vampire Dad: To Kurogane.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard
  • Leitmotif: Strange Names One should probably note that this and Kurogane's "Break the Sword of Justice" are probably the only themes of the series that are completely separated from the normal style the soundtrack has going on.
  • Like A Daughter To Me: How he feels about Sakura.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: He grows his hair out after Acid Tokyo. See Expository Hairstyle Change.
  • Magic Knight
  • Martyr Without a Cause
  • The Mole: Was planted by FWR in order to ensure c!Syaoran succeeded in finding the feathers.
  • Mr. Fanservice
  • The Nicknamer: To everyone in the group to some extent, but especially Kurogane. So much so he never uses the ninja's real name. At least, not until his post-vampire-transformation personality switch, where a simple statement of "Good morning, Kurogane" is used to great effect.
  • Occult Blue Eyes: His magical powers are explicitly tied to the blue color in his eyes.
  • Older Than He Looks: As Yuuko told Kurogane, [Fai] has already lived many times Kurogane's age. Given that Kurogane looks to be in his early 20's at the youngest, this probably makes Fai at least 80 years old, despite also appearing to be in his early 20's.
  • Our Vampires Are Different
  • Phenotype Stereotype
  • Power Limiter: His full-back phoenix tattoo is supposed to restrict his huge innate powers to keep him safe. Thus, when he gives it up to Yuuko as his traveling price, he also swears off the use of magic. Later subverted when we find out he's more dangerous with it than without it, because he is cursed to kill the first person he meets who is MORE powerful. With his magic restricted, it's more likely that he'll find someone who outstrips him.
  • Pretty in Mink: A giant floofy white fur overcoat. He loses it for good in Celes, which is probably symbolic on some level.
  • Protagonist Journey To Villain
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive Guy to Kurogane's Manly Man, fitting the CLAMP stereotype.
  • Ship Tease: With Kurogane at all times, everywhere and no matter who's watching. Check the Yaoi Guys entry below.
  • Spell My Name with an S: Officially, it's "Fay", but Del Rey had already settled on "Fai" for their translation, and fans tend to just spell it however the hell they want. There's also Flowright vs. Fluorite.
  • Superpower Meltdown: In Celes country, when the second curse on Fay activates, he literally shuts down a dimension with his magic. This also highlights his Power Degeneration.
  • Stepford Smiler: Though it does begin to crack and ultimately appears to fall away completely.
  • Team Mom: Is essentially the self-proclaimed mother of the group. His actions towards R!Syaoran during his It's All My Fault-episode cements that.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Fai has it hard throughout the series, starting with the death of his twin (which he believes himself responsible for); Ashura's mental breakdown and murderous rampage; losing an eye and completely dropping his Stepford Smiler act during Infinity, followed by Sakura's "dying" because of his triggered curse; and finally the entire Ceres Arc, especially Kurogane nearly dying and Ashura's eventual death.
  • Twin Switch: Fai is actually Yuui (although the switch occurred after the real Fai, whose name Yuui uses, was already dead).
  • When He Smiles: When he's really, truly happy, and not just putting on an act.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Kurogane.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: It's not exactly willingly, but Fai shuts down a whole dimension with a magic-powered freak out once his curse activates in Ceres, and he nearly did so earlier in Infinity when Sakura's soul was split from her body.
  • Wolverine Claws: When becoming a vampire.
  • Yaoi Guys: With Kurogane. Like most CLAMP pairings it's not made explicit, but their body language around each other in their crossover appearance in xxxHolic after the end of the series is pretty telling, and Word of God has pretty much confirmed it.

Mokona Modoki (Soel)

Voiced by: Mika Kikuchi (JP), Carrie Savage (EN)

A white rabbit-like creature created by Yuuko. Can travel dimensions, translate languages and send things to the black Mokona at Yuuko’s shop.

Crossover character from Magic Knight Rayearth. Later, it's revealed that Soel and Larg are copies made by Clow and Yuuko of the original Mokona from Cephiro.

Syaoran / Tsubasa Li

Voiced by: Miyu Irino (JP), Jason Liebrecht (EN)

A teenage who was used by sorcerer Fei-Wang Reed to create C!Syaoran. As a descendant from the sorcerer Clow Reed, Syaoran was able to seal part of his "heart" within his clone, meant to be manipulated by Fei-Wang, allowing the clone to grow a personality. Once Syaoran escapes from the prison and his clone betrays his friends, he joins the group of Kurogane, Fai, Mokona and Sakura as he wishes to recover something he lost, later revealing he wished to find the original Sakura. In the series' ending he becomes the son of C!Syaoran and C!Sakura due to a time paradox but loses his bonds with them after the paradox is broken.
  • Adorably Precocious Child: When being only seven he was already one of the most mature characters in the entire series.
  • Always Save the Girl: For Sakura's sake, he has purposely damned an entire town, watching them melt before his eyes, chosen staying with her over his own world and family at the age of seven, and then made a Deal with the Devil to radically alter, and not for better, the life of her entire family, herself, and his own parents, along with, potentially, all of space and time.
  • Ambiguously Evil: Carrying Fei Wang's symbol, being with him and appearing in a dream trying to kill the other Syaoran made many believe this Syaoran was evil.
  • Badass: He can kick ass without showing emotions. As a kid he was already a Badass Adorable
  • Big Brother Instinct: Too Watanuki.
  • Break the Haughty: At first he is unwilling to ask for wishes as he believes he can grant any of his wishes by himself. When he needs to return to Clow he swallows his pride to ask Yuuko his wish.
  • Brown Eyes
  • Calling Your Attacks: RAITEI SHORAI!
  • Character Development: At first he is incredibly stoic and uncommunicative due to what his clone did as well as his failures. Once his comrades accept him, he starts smiling more often and talking more.
  • Chastity Couple: After waiting about 7 years to save Sakura, Syaoran has to leave shortly after confessing her his feelings.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With Sakura.
  • Comes Great Responsibility: The reason why he was trained so early.
  • Declaration of Protection: He swore to protect Sakura.
  • Disappeared Dad: Like did he have a natural father before the time paradox? Still, the clones disappeared too.
  • Disability Superpower: By ripping an eye of him he could give his clone a heart and at the same time see everything he sees at the cost of half of his magic. Once he recovers his eye and magic power he learned the clone's fighting style
  • Elemental Powers: Fire, lightning and wind.
  • Expy: Of Syaoran Li even more than his clone. He even has Li's magic, weaponry but a more mature personality.
  • Eye Scream: He rips his eye out, seals half his soul into it, and implants it in his clone to foil Fei Wong's plans.
  • Failure Knight: The reason why he is so stoic in the beginning.
  • First Name Basis: He never calls somebody by their name. The only exceptions include both the clones, the real Sakura and Fei Wong Reed.
  • Fish out of Water: He adapts easily.
  • Foil: While at first he is easily compared with the Syaoran clone, he is actually closer to Watanuki. The two share the same personality traits although Syaoran is much calmer.
  • Fountain of Youth: A really sad youth
  • Guilt Complex: He blames himself for pretty much everything that happened, because of his decision to rewind time when he was seven.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Toya calling him "brat" annoys him a lot.
  • Has Two Daddies: This is basically what it his relationship with Fai and Kurogane has evolved to by the end of the series.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: You will not become very popular when you have a clone who is murdering anybody interfering with his goal.
  • Katanas Are Just Better
  • Like Parent, Like Spouse: A complex example since he is in love with the original from whom his mother was cloned.
  • Magic Knight
  • My Greatest Failure: Hesitating to take the Original Sakura's hand to save her from Fei-Wong's curse hunts him.
  • My Own Grampa
  • Not Quite Dead: Appears to be killed by his clone in Clow. It turns out the clone wounded himself.
  • Not So Different: Has this with Fei Wang as both wish to avoid the death of another person but their methods are very different.
  • Oedipus Complex: He's been impersonating his father and romancing a princess who is the original from whom his mother was cloned since he was seven.
  • Older than They Look: Mentally he is about 20 years old.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted, his and R!Sakura's real names are both Tsubasa.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname
  • Power Copying: He manages to imitate his clone's fighting style perfectly even when closing his eyes.
  • Say My Name: FEI WAAAAAAAAAAANG!!!
  • Sealed Badass in a Can
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Sakura.
  • Strong Family Resemblance
  • Supporting Protagonist: At first since there was little known about this and the story was more focused on C!Sakura. Later he becomes a the main character when his objective is revealed.
  • The Stoic: He is surprisingly quiet in his first appearances in comparison to his childhood and is only expressive with Watanuki. However, he warms up to Kurogane, Fai and Mokona and smiles more often.
  • Trojan Horse: His body since Fei Wang needs the soul to make him rescue R!Sakura. With the clone's help, Syaoran acts like the horse.
  • Walking Spoiler
  • Walking the Earth: After Fei-Wang dies, the two Syaorans and Watanuki are subjected to his final curse, and the three of them are pulled into a void between time and space. The original Syaoran decides the price he would pay to escape from the area is to continue traveling through dimensions forever.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: When visiting Clow for the second time, he has no means of returning home and never does.

Sakura / Princess Tsubasa

Voiced by: Yui Makino (JP), Monica Rial (EN)

The princess of Clow Country in the original timeline. She befriended and fell in love with the original Syaoran when he was transported by Yuuko to her world. Fei Wong placed a "Black Seal" on Sakura, with only her parents and Syaoran knowing it. By the time the black wings grow it will devour her and she will die. After seven years, when the seal was about to kill Sakura, Nadeshiko stopped time and Syaoran wished Yuuko to turn back time to save her.

     Central Antagonists 

Fei Wong Reed

Voiced by: Kazuhiro Nakata (JP), Randy Tallman (EN, first season), R Bruce Elliott (EN, second season)

Fei Wong Reed is a powerful magician who is after Sakura's inner powers. Therefore, he scatters her soul into multiple feathers throughout various worlds to make it get stronger as Syaoran is able to return them to her. Descendant of Clow Reed

Almost everything that happens in the series is according to his plan. He wants to make Yuuko come back to life, something not even Clow Reed was able to fully do, so he can be superior to Clow.

  • Artificial Human: His body desintegrates while Fei Wong deems him as another failed copy.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: He hides among the residents of Piffle World, knowing that Syaoran and the others would assume he was just another alternate version of someone they had already met.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: He is quickly killed during the lead-up to the final showdown, having been left behind as a sacrificial body double for Fei Wong.

Princess Tomoyo/Tsukuyomi (Nihon Country; Hanshin Republic; Piffle World)

Voiced by: Maaya Sakamoto (JP), Amber Cotton (EN, Anime), Trina Nishimura (EN, OVA)

The miko-princess of Kurogane's Nihon Country who sends the ninja on his quest. Her Piffle counterpart is the president of the eminent Piffle Princess company, which hosts the annual Dragonfly race.


  • Alternate Self: Appears in Hanshin as a schoolgirl, and in Piffle World as the president of Piffle Princess. Interestingly, she does perform a Flash Sideways at one point.
  • Barrier Maiden: Tomoyo is the Tsukuyomi, a sorceress who protects Nihon from demons.
  • Childhood Friends: With Kurogane. Apparently, her Piffle counterpart and Nokoru.
  • Fangirl: Piffle!Tomoyo is more in tune with her CCS personality.
  • Genki Girl: Her Piffle counterpart.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Barely reaches Kurogane's waist.

  • Miko
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Her Piffle counterpart, when it comes to Sakura.

  • Proper Lady: At fourteen, too!
  • Psychic Powers: In addition to being a miko Princess Tomoyo is also a dreamseer, which grants her several. She later gives up this power to Yuuko in order to transport Syaoran and co. to Nihon Country.

  • Purple Is Powerful: Wears purple often, is a princess, and has amazing Psychic Powers.
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin
  • Shipper on Deck: Appears to be this for Kurogane and Fai. She doesn't only put Fai in a furisode, something worn by unmarried women or (historically) the male lover of a samurai, but also goes and consoles the mage while Kurogane is bleeding out next to her because she knows how worried he is and drops this line when talking to Kurogane in his dream in the closing world of Celes:
    Tomoyo If you want to go together, if you wish for it with all your heart [...]
  • Silk Hiding Steel
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Almost very single version of Tomoyo who appears in the series instantly latches herself onto Sakura.
  • Waif Prophet
  • Wise Beyond Her Years: A trait she shares with her CCS counterpart; psychic powers and ability to see the future notwithstanding, she is still very mature for her age of fourteen.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Nihon Country is clearly a Fantasy Counterpart Culture for Japan and Tomoyo is a soft-spoken and steel-spined young lady.

  • Hero-Worshipper: He really admires Shougo and Syaoran for their strength. He eventually gets promoted to The Knights Who Say Squee when Shougo invites him to join his group.
  • Mistaken Identity: Primera accidently gets him instead of Syaoran like she wanted.
  • Not So Weak: Despite his Kudan normally being low level when he uses it for himself, it becomes incredibly strong whenever he needs to protect someone else.
