Cheza

Voiced by: Arisa Ogasawara (JP), Sherry Lynn (EN)

  • Apocalypse Maiden
  • Artificial Human: She was created via alchemy from a lunar flower.
  • Blind Seer: The fact that she's blind isn't obvious, since her abilities pretty much make up for it.
  • Chained by Fashion: Has golden manacles and a neck chain from her time in the scientist's People Jar. Subverted in that they're so not chain-like that they look like a matching necklace and bracelets.
  • The Chick
  • Cleavage Window
  • Declaration of Protection: To the wolves.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: In Kiba's.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: She has dark red scleras, red irises and no pupils. Then again she is a genetically engineered flower-human hybrid and blind. Her eyes may indeed have been literally designed to look cool rather than function properly.
  • Fairy Tale Motifs: One of Cheza's outfits is a red riding hood.
  • Healing Hands
  • Interspecies Romance: With Kiba.
  • "It" Is Dehumanizing: A variant. She refers to herself as an "it", due to being an Artificial Human (Or, more commonly in the English version, as "This One"). Everyone else uses female pronouns for her.
  • I Will Wait for You: Before she dies, she tells Kiba she will be waiting for him in the next world.
  • Macguffin Girl: She's actually a lunar flower.
  • Marked Change
  • Mystical Waif: She's a mystical flower with the form of a young girl and the key to opening paradise. Of course, the Big Bad needs her for his own purposes and the main characters constantly protect her so she can take them to paradise.
  • No Body Left Behind: Cheza doesn't just die - she disintegrates into flower seeds.
  • No Social Skills: She has grown up in a laboratory, spending most of her time semi-comatose in a glass vessel. As a result, she has little to no knowledge of the real world, less of how to interact with other people.
  • Oracular Urchin
  • People Jars: Cheza was in a jar being studied by Cher Degre before she got busted out by Darcia. In this case, she's not being imprisoned just studied and kept alive. The second time she gets put in a jar, it follows the trope much more closely because 1) she's been forcibly taken, 2) her most zealous bodyguard Kiba has also been locked in a nearby jar and is having his blood drained out, and 3) Jaguara and her guests are drinking WOLF BLOOD in front of her, which may or may not be Kiba's.
  • Plant Person: While she looks like a human girl, she's still technically a flower. She can communicate with plants, becomes weak when deprived of water and sunlight, and her blood is green and poisonous when ingested. At the gates of Paradise, she "blooms" into an elongated, tree-like form before dissolving into thousands of spherical seeds which begin sprouting more lunar flowers.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She's at least 200 years old, but looks about 16 or so.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Inverted.
  • Rei Ayanami Expy: An Artificial Human with short pink hair, pale skin and red eyes. She's weak-bodied, a Mystical Waif and is usually very calm and demure, although she does perk up quite a bit in the presence of wolves. Her outfit even resembles Rei's plugsuit.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: The sweet, low-key romantic subtype. For bonus points, the guy who created her has blue hair.
  • The Scream: Upon seeing or just sensing spilled wolf's blood nearby, she gives an unnervingly loud and high-pitched scream.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Kiba.
  • Sugar and Ice Personality: She's obviously a very sweet girl, but she's also quite monotone and calm most of the time.
  • Third-Person Person: Sort of, she only refers to herself as "this one".
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth
  • Woman in White
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is pink.

The Commander

Voiced by: Kan Tokumaru (JP), Bob Papenbrook (EN)

  • Agent Scully: He maintains that there are no such thing as wolves in contrast to Cher and even his own soldiers. He finally does believe in episode 21 after they save him.
  • Badass Longcoat
  • Badass Mustache
  • Dragon Ascendant: After Orkham's passing, he becomes the commander of all the remaining troops.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: He's the one who leads Orkham's soldiers against the wolves, while Orkham's back in his castle.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: He leads his troops off to fight Jaguara's soldiers and is never seen again. Later on a few are drinking in a bar and remark to Quent that they mopped up the last of the resistance, implying that he was killed, but we never find out considering the ending it's likely he was killed one way or another.
  • A Father to His Men
  • Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique: Quent looks pretty beaten up after he's interrogated.
  • Mauve Shirt: He appears the most out of all the soldiers and one off characters, he even made it onto the image on the main page.
  • Men of Sherwood: His soldiers while out numbered and out gunned make a pretty successful stand against Jaguara's army, blowing up airships and routing their soldiers from an occupied City.
  • Mook Lieutenant: He commands Lord Orkham's troops and, as befitting the trope, has a uniform that distinguishes himself from the others.
  • Noble Top Enforcer: Especially when compared to Jaguara's soldiers. The Commander is rough, but willing to fight for his home. When the wolves save him he gladly points out Jaguara's keep, and has no real grudge against them.
  • No Name Given: He's only called The Commander or Retrieval Squad Commander.
  • The Remnant: He ends up leading the last groups of organized resistance against Lady Jaguara.
  • Reverse Arm-Fold: On occasion.
  • Rousing Speech: When asked why he's still fighting in-spite of Orkham's death he gives one that puts the vigor back into his soldiers.
    "We're going to Freeze City... This may prove to be the one battle that determines our fate as men. That's why I'll fight, not for the glory of the nobles, but for the honor of protecting our very existence. We'll stand together and we'll fight to save what is ours!"
