Due to the LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, this page has been split into sub-pages.




[[foldercontrol]]

!Human Realm
[[folder:Humans in General]]
* TheAlliance: The six cities have one of sorts, sending help to one another when there are sura attacks and generally keeping constant communication.
* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Most humans believe suras are this; of course, the truth is more complicated. It's important to note, however, that humans have been the suras' punching bags for millions if not billions of years, and thus this view of them is not entirelly unwarranted.
* AlwaysLawfulGood: On the other hand, gods are seen this way, even if they're actually only a bit better. Even characters that are able to point out how gods and suras aren't all that much apart on the morality spectrum can't do much but obey to gods, as everyone else sees them this way.
* CategorismAsAPhobia: The prejudice against halfs reeks of this. It only ever started after the emotional ressonance led to them going berserk during the Cataclysm.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Almost all purebloods have matching hair and eyes.
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: Fiendish magic. Just as divine magic harnesses the power of a god, fiendish magic borrowed the power of a nastika. It was so dangerous that mistakes could entail on the death of not only the user's enemies but also their allies and the very one who used the spell. Humans gave up on it around a thousand years ago, something that did not sit well with a few suras.
* EasyRoadToHell: Human society has this mentality, which is discussed in season three. It's eventually revealed that sins such as "blasphemy" aren't really sins; when discussing the matter, Eline and Laila notice that using the fear of going to hell because of your sins (especially blasphemy) is a way for the gods to control humans, not unlike how adults scare children into behaving with the boogeyman.
* ElementalNation: Slightly so. It's possible to give a loose characterization to each city based on the elements of the barriers that protect them. Atera is the "City of Fire", all in pink and red, just north of the equator; Rindhallow is the "City of Death and Darkness", the coldest of the six cities in Willarv and also the one with the biggest reputation for sura-killing. Eloth, the City of Light and Creation, is a beautiful metropolis and the center of the magic world. Mistyshore, the City of Water, is the city by the sea and where one goes to visit the water channels. Kalibloom is the City of Earth and Chaos, all in high mountains and with a black sky where stars cannot be seen ([[spoiler:and also the place where most Taraka attacks happen]] in season three). Finally, Aeroplateau is a flying city that harbors the Temples of Air and Sky. However, magic isn't limited to said elements and the citizens don't really fit a single archetype.
* FantasticRacism: Halfs have been victims of this since N0.
* GrimUpNorth: Rindhallow, the coldest of the six cities, is in the northern pole of Willarv and has a dark reputation among suras.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Halfs are half sura. However, most halfs come from other halfs rather than having a sura parent.
* LittleBitBeastly: Halfs retain traits of their sura heritage. This actually allows sura to masquerade as them when entering cities.
* TheMagocracy: Magicians are the highest social group among humans; pretty much every single ruling or somehow influent position a human can hold in Willarv has something to do with magic.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Quarters age at 1/2 the rate purebloods do. Halfs age at 1/4.
* PunyEarthlings: A number of sura and gods consider humans to be lesser beings, if not irrelevant ants.
* TheTheocracy: In a way, yes, and even more so in places where gods are summoned. Priests and priestesses generally are at the very top of the social hierarchy and have as much authority as real-world rulers. It's even said in-universe that what a god says immediately becomes akin to law. Interestingly, things were changing after the Cataclysm; however, as gods began to reappear in the human realm, things went back to how they were, something a few characters actually lament.

!!Leez's Village
[[folder:Kubera Leez]]
!!Kubera Leez/Leez Haias
!!!Pureblood, Birth Attributes: Kubera-Kubera-Kubera
[[quoteright:300:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/leezprofile_2241.png]]
[[caption-width-right:300:[[labelnote:Click to see her appearance as of "Your Justice and Mine"]][[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/leez_s2_portrait.png]][[/labelnote]]]]

The heroine of the story, the "Human with the God's Name" that the sura are searching for. She's a bit empty-headed, but good-natured and friendly. Her overriding goal is to exact revenge on the sura who destroyed her village.
----
* AlternateIdentityAmnesia: [[spoiler:Cannot remember anything from the times when her "friend" takes over her body.]]
* ArtShift: Her character design changes dramatically (and permanently) when [[spoiler:she realizes Asha was just using her]]. Particularly noticeable because it happens ''instantaneously'', between one panel and the next.
* AttackReflector: The Golden Knight lets her reflect transcendental attacks back at their user, although it costs her vigor proportional to the power of the attack.
* AudienceSurrogate: Initially, Leez knew very little about sura and magic, so having things explained to her was a way to have them explained to the audience.
* AutoRevive: One of the powers she gets from the Golden Knight, though it drains all her vigor when it goes off.
* BadassOnPaper: She's incredibly strong, is in possession of two insanely powerful magical artifacts, and has even learned physical augmentation magic, but is still consistently overmatched by all the godlike beings in the story, and is also suppressing herself quite a lot emotionally.
** She grows into a proper badass as time goes on. According to Mirha's observations, with the Golden Knight and the Sword of Return she's the strongest human fighter on the ''planet'', outside of Kasak (who can turn into a [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons giant dragon]]).
* BadDreams: After the [[spoiler:battle with God Kubera and Asha's revelation of what Leez really means to her and what Asha did to her father]], Leez frequently has dreams about the both of them and how they betrayed her, causing her to wake up screaming and in cold sweat.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Why she gives Ran the Neutral Bow, despite how badly she wanted it at first. As she puts it, the kind words he said while sticking up for her against Asha were worth far more than anything she could get for the bow.
* BigEater: Food is never far from Leez's mind. In fact, it's often the first thing she thinks of in new places: eating the local specialties (in copious amounts).
** Becomes HarsherInHindsight when it's revealed that she eats so much as a way of coping with stress.
* BigSisterInstinct: To Yuta, partially due to the fact that she doesn't know that he's actually much older and stronger than her. Not any more after his development into third stage.
* ABirthdayNotABreak: Her 16th birthday was the start of it all. More recently, she spent seven years in the sura realm, which pretty much means seven birthdays focused on survival and likely nothing more.
* BookDumb: Although she's not so much ''dumb'' as she is simply ignorant of the world around her, due to never being able to leave her village or go to school.
* BreakTheCutie: Her village's destruction broke her. [[spoiler:After Asha reveals she was just using her and only spared her life because of her father, she breaks even more]].
* BrokenBird: After the destruction of her village, although she hides it well. [[spoiler:After it becomes clear that Asha was using her, she no longer bothers to hide it.]]
* BrokenPedestal: While she was quite pious originally, seven years in the sura realm lead her to see gods as bullies. The true reason behind this change were not completely explained yet. [[spoiler:On a more personal note, it seems she no longer holds Mister in the same high regard as she did before, just like he predicted. She even calls him incompetent when they meet in Konchez.]]
* ButterFace: Although she's drawn much the same as everyone else, it's made clear by everyone's reactions that she's actually kinda ugly. Every once in a while she's drawn "realistically," and turns into a {{gonk}}. On the other hand, it's made clear that [[SheIsAllGrownUp when she's a few years older]]...
* TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive: And it's willing to nuke it out of existence.
* CharacterDevelopment: From IdiotHero to ExtremeDoormat to a rare heroic version of BecameTheirOwnAntithesis.
* TheChewToy: A rather sad example. Everything she's known and loved has been destroyed, and her primary protector, Asha, doesn't show the least bit of respect for her. She knows at some level that Asha is not trustworthy, but she's so desperate to avoid being abandoned that she keeps playing the ditz act and suffers whatever criticism comes her way. To top it off, seven years spent in the sura realm meant she ended up being the target of several powerful suras.
* ClingyCostume: [[spoiler:The Hide of Bondage, after being modified with Yuta's scarf, is this. She can take it off, but if she gets more than a few feet away from it, it will reach out and grab her.]]
* ClingyMacGuffin: She has a tendency to collect these. She can't remove the Golden Knight without cutting off her arm, she can't get rid of the modified Hide of Bondage, and while she technically ''can'' leave the Sword of Return behind, doing so would just mean she'd be stuck with all its disadvantages and none of its advantages.
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: In-universe, in a way. Leez can only accept Asha's CallToAdventure because she lost her family and village - ''however'', it can be argued that reasons she's this are all linked to Asha one way or another. [[spoiler:It was Asha the one who murdered Rao]], and although she wasn't responsible for it, she's very much connected to the reason behind the red sky attacks. Leez being an orphan meant that Asha could toss her around whatever way she wanted, because not only Leez did not have anyone to defend her (at least until Ran showed up), but she wouldn't defend herself out of fear of abandonment. Her lack of family or other connections also meant she was easy prey to whoever wished to use her, such as Claude suggesting Yuta be allowed [[spoiler:to devoure her as many times he wanted because of the Golden Knight]] - which wouldn't be possible if her parents were around to defend her, as she wouldn't even be there in the first place. Yes, Leez being orphaned was very convenient to everyone - except Leez herself.
* CryIntoChest: When she meets Yuta after [[spoiler:the battle at Aeroplateau and Rindhallow]], she winds up crying into his chest.
* CuteBruiser: She packs a ''very'' surprising wallop, even though she's not the smallest girl you'll meet. Just ask the two gods she surprised when she hit out at them in passing, as it actually hurt.
* DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou: What she hopes is the case, as she would rather her father be unable to reach her than dead.
* DangerousSixteenthBirthday: Her village is destroyed the day she turns 16.
* DeconstructedCharacterArchetype: [[spoiler:During the later half of season two she becomes a deconstruction of a typical shoujo romance heroine. Her original headstrong [[TheLadette Lad-ette]] personality slowly becomes replaced by a standardized ExtremeDoormat - because a chain of tragedies and escalating emotional abuse from the person she trusted the most robbed her of all self-confidence and left her an emotional wreck. She eventually TakesALevelInBadass and recovers her sense of self again, but it’s clear the old Leez no longer exists.]]
* DespairEventHorizon:[[spoiler:Seems to have crossed it as of the "Your Justice and Mine" arc.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Tells Asha "If it's not possible, I'll '''make''' it possible."
* DisappearedDad: While the full situation is unknown, she has never met her father. She hopes he's alive, but their aren't indications otherwise. As it turns out, [[spoiler:Rao is actually dead, killed by none other than]] [[spoiler:Asha herself]].
* [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength Does Not Know Her Own Strength]]: Played with. She doesn't know the full extent of what she can do, as she's still learning and has been kept very much in the dark. But, she knows she can cause havoc if she's not careful, so panics if she accidentally lets loose without thinking. This is often played for humor... but, not always. Both God Kubera and Agni note that she could accidentally kill a human in one hit if she wasn't careful. Fortunately, she eventually gets a PowerLimiter.
* DoomedHometown: This is what kicks her whole journey off.
* DullEyesOfUnhappiness: [[spoiler:Gets these more and more often as she graduates from simply hiding the amount of grief she’s carrying to becoming a full on StepfordSmiler.]]
* DudeWheresMyRespect: [[spoiler: Asha treats Yuta with a fair amount of respect from the start and gradually begins to treat Ran as an equal as time goes on. Unfortunately, her treatment of Leez only gets worse.]].
* FantasticRacism: She doesn't have much of an opinion on sura, except extreme hatred for Garuda clan Rakshasa like the one that destroyed her village. [[spoiler:After seeing the memories she recovered from her implied summoning of a god from when she was five years old,]] Yuta says [[spoiler:Maruna's attack was not the only reason for her to hate the Garuda clan so much.]]
* FireForgedFriends: She admits that they can't quite be called close, but spending seven years in the sura realm with Kasak--the only other human--has made them better friends.
* FutureBadass: If the various Insights of either "Mister", Agni or Taraka are anything to go by.
* GenericCuteness: Explicitly invoked. The author includes an out-of-character note from their AuthorAvatar that the usual cute-ish image we see of Leez is just the author self-indulgently making her lead character look more beautiful than she really is, and that she's actually somewhat ugly. ('Butterface' is the specific term used.)
* GeniusDitz: Despite never being able to go to school, she is very perspective, intuitive, and has excellent recall. She can remember conversations word-for-word.
* GenkiGirl: She's very cheerful, energetic, will share her fleeting impressions on most things to anybody in earshot, is quick to hug and is quite loud and appreciative. She appears to be deliberately playing this up due to her fear of abandonment.
* GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler:By someone who "wishes her happiness, more than anyone else in the world."]] [[spoiler:Who's revealed to be her own self from N23, with Kali's help.]]
* HiddenDepths: Very much so. And, so hidden, ''she'' has no idea how deep they go. At the very least, it's obvious she's playing up the ditz act both to suppress her own inner suffering and out of an intense fear of abandonment, and she's aware of much more than she's letting on. Even to herself.
* HopeSpot: In Aeroplateu, she meets Mirha and the two of them form a bond. As Asha's trial is underway, Mirha informas Asha that she will take care of Leez from now on. After all the shit Asha put the poor girl through (for absolutely no reason ''at all''), it seems things will finally started going the right way for her... but then everything goes to hell in the most absolute way possible.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: [[spoiler: Ultimately averted for the little good it does her. She knows both Asha and "Mister" are behaving suspiciously, and she initially yells at them for it. However, she changes her mind about them after they come to her aid in situations where it would be very easy to simply leave her behind. Near the end of season two, one leaves her practically an EmptyShell of her former self and the other turns out to be the mastermind behind the red sky attacks which destroyed her village.]]
* HumbleHero: When Brilith tells her she ought to boast more about her power, lest she want to be known as just "the girl who drew the Sword of Re" forever, Leez points out that that ''is'' all she really did and it doesn't feel right to brag about abilities that were pretty much given to her. Next to the SmugSuper attitude of the sura and gods, Brilith finds Leez's outlook refreshing.
* IdiotHero: She's more ignorant than idiotic, having flashes of brilliance when she's allowed enough information to work with and time to think.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: The reason she does not (outwardly) question Asha's actions.
* InterspeciesRomance: She's a pureblood, Yuta is a Rakshasa. Except that, like everything else in ''Kubera'', it's not that simple: [[spoiler:they actually tried during the seven years spent in the sura realm but nothing will ever come out of this, it seems, because of the small detail that ''Yuta has a compulsion for eating those he loves''. They end up giving up on it.]]
* IWantMyMommy: As multiple gods' insights show.
* KnownOnlyByTheirNickname: She goes by Leez Haias (a combination of her parents surnames) to hide her real name, which is a god's. [[spoiler:She's still referred to as Leez after her real name is revealed.]]
* LeeroyJenkins: More than a few times, Leez basically plows forwards taking the simple "smash at big thing with fists/sword" approach to combat. However, it's justified, played with, subverted ''and'' deconstructed.
** She has a tendency to throw herself at enemies she knows are vastly superior to her in strength -- mainly because those are the only kind she tends to get aimed at her. Often justified, as she mainly does this when defending others, or when alternative means to solve the issues aren't apparent to her because of her perceptual or knowledge deficiencies: she can't communicate easily with Sura to find out what is going on and why they keep showing up. That, and they (as well as other very powerful people) have reasons to want to kill her. Also, she knows for sure that she's more durable than most, she has ''pitiful'' levels of self-worth and has been actively held back from learning more diverse fighting styles and tactics. "Attack!" is basically all she has as a tool to work with.
** Her current fighting style entails throwing herself at the enemy, getting one or two hits in, being tossed around like a ragdoll, regenerating, and then repeating this. This is more effective than it sounds, but the toll on her is hideous.
* LettingHerHairDown: She stops wearing her GirlishPigtails after her DespairEventHorizon.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Asha and others actively keep her in the dark about a lot of what's going on. This does not help her already crumbling mental state.
* LoserProtagonist: At first. She does grow much stronger physically, but the events of the webtoon have a significant negative effect on her mentally.
* MadeOfIron: She is far more durable than a pureblood teenage girl should be. She is also very resistant against cold temperatures, swimming in the frigid water channel (which the author notes would give most people cardiac arrest). [[spoiler:It's revealed after she gains the Sword of Return that she had regenerative abilities beyond that of a normal human as well, though the sword now suppresses them.]]
* {{Masquerade}}: Her whole life is basically this. She goes by the name "Leez Haias", but her actual name is Kubera Leez. She wasn't allowed to leave her village - even to go to school - because of this. Recent revelations in season three [[spoiler:imply even her life before the destruction of her village was this to some extent: it seems the villagers died ten years before Maruna's attack, but Leez believed they were alive for some reason. This is yet to be properly explained.]]
* MeaningfulName: So meaningful, it's the driving force behind the whole plot. Kubera Leez, the [[{{Tagline}} "girl with a god's name."]]
* MissingMom: Anna vanished with her village's destruction. It is unknown whether she's alive or dead.
* MoralityPet: Possibly to Asha. [[spoiler:She isn't]].
* NomDeMom: She took on her mother's last name and uses her father's last name as her first name as an alias.
* NotAfraidToDie: She fully accepts that she could die trying for her revenge. This is only reinforced when she learns [[spoiler:of her short lifespan]].
** During the attack on Aeroplateau, she thinks this word for word.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: She's far smarter than she appears, mainly being BookDumb, but she is engaging in a lot of hardcore self repression. She seems like an airheaded ditz, but time progresses, the more clear it becomes that she's actually quite sharp, but also much more emotionally fragile than her outward behavior suggests.
* PleaseDontLeaveMe: In a dream, she begs her mother not to leave her.
** [[spoiler:If the memories she recovered are anything to go by, she also did something similar when she was a child.]]
** On an even more depressing note, this is the reason why she clings to Asha despite all the abuse: Leez is terrified of being left alone.
* PluckyGirl: Frequently jumps into battles she can't win. Her lack of worry over her own safety it's actually one of her major psychological issues.
* {{Revenge}}: For her village.
** [[spoiler: and as of the end of season 2, her father Rao]]
* SecretSecretKeeper: [[spoiler:She figures out that Yuta is a sura long before he reveals it to her. She simply kept quiet about it because she hoped he'd trust her enough to tell her himself someday.]]
* SheCleansUpNicely: When Mirha puts makeup on her, Yuta [[DistractedByTheSexy gets so distracted]] that he falls off of the tree branch he was standing on.
* SheIsAllGrownUp: The narrative makes it clear that the version we usually see is actually pretty ugly, even if GenericCuteness covers it up; but when she gets a temporary PlotRelevantAgeUp, it's made clear that in a few years she will be genuinely beautiful.
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:Her giving Yuta his moniker was this to Kali's plans to some level. Him recognizing "Yuta" as his name weakened his true name given to him by his mother, and thus put quite a bit of her plans in jeopardy. Kali herself, however, doesn't consider this to be a major loss as much as something annoying, as she predicted Leez would only be a small detour in her plans.]]
* StatuesqueStunner: Her older self.
* StepfordSmiler: Inside, she's hurting badly. Her whole GenkiGirl outlook isn't a lie. But she is playing it up to both keep herself going and not alienate others. [[spoiler:The facade finally cracks completely in ''Your Justice And Mine''. She reveals that she really was aware of everything that was going on, yet she couldn't bring herself to leave Asha because she thought she had nothing else to live for.]]
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Leez as an adult is said to look exactly like a female version of her father.
* TongueTied:
** She can't talk about god Kubera.
** And again in Season 3, but this time [[spoiler:about Kali]]. Luckily for her, she's trying to explain this to Agni, who's aware of this effect and easily deduces what's going on.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Curry Mushrooms.
* [[TurnOutLikeHisFather Turn Out Like Her Father]]: Vayu warns her that she's walking the same path Rao did: powerful human figher, short, lonely life. In many ways, her story if pretty much a repeat of her father's.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler:She will die at the latest, in her mid-twenties.]] [[spoiler:It's implied this is a result of her having summoned a god as a child, but as of now there is very little information about it.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Green in her case.
* YouKilledMyFather: Leez is utterly enraged when Asha reveals who killed Rao, [[spoiler:Asha herself.]]

Leez's mother; almost nothing is known about her, though there are some hints that she may be more important than she seemed at first.
----
* ActionGirl: According to her friends.
* BladeOnAStick: Seemed to have used a spear as her main weapon pre-Cataclysm.
* FantasticRacism: Completely averted. Anna was known for befriending halfs.
* HiddenDepths: She's simply one of Leez's (many) trauma fuels, right? Wrong. It seems there was far more to Anna than it meets the eye. For instance:
** She and Rao got together. He was known for being so disinterested in women that people actually thought he was gay. The fact that they kept their relationship a secret implies that whatever it was that Rao was involved in, Anna was at least in the loop, or had some sort of knowledge that at least something was going on.
** She was a fighter before the Cataclysm, known for having half friends.
** Rao named Leez "Kubera", but it seems it was Anna the one who instructed their daughter not to say this name to people after her 16th birthday. Also, she never allowed Leez outside of their village - in other words, she seemed to have at least some sort of awareness of the danger her daughter would be in if the was outed as a Kubera.
** Last but not least, it seems that for some reason people thought she [[spoiler:died]] in N5, as season three shows. What ''actually'' happened to her [[spoiler:and, it seems, to Leez's whole village]] that year is a mystery.
* MysteriousParent: Possibly even more so than Rao. We know the city he (probably) came from, how he died, what sort of reputation he had, and, from some comments, even a bit about his personality. Anna is a question mark.
* RetiredBadass: She fought in the war that ended with the Cataclysm, and was known for having many Half friends.

Leez's father, a legendary warrior who mysteriously vanished years ago.
----
* TheAce: One of the most famous fighters of his generation. He was so famous even suras knew about him.
* ActionDad: He was a legendary warrior and Leez's father, though she was born while he was on a rescue mission.
* ChallengeSeeker: According to Ran.
* DisappearedDad: To Leez, though not by his own choice; he was trapped away from his family when the Cataclysm occurred, and never made it home.
* GenerationXerox: An extremely powerful pureblood human fighter that can use transcendentals, is acquainted with gods and high-rank suras, uses extremely powerful godly objects that were handed to them by the very gods that created them and are doomed to live [[spoiler:short]], lonely lives. Leez or Rao?
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:He died getting the Carte transport ship to Willarv safely.]]
* ItRunsInTheFamily: When describing how Rao's child would be if it took after him, Ran describes... Leez. There are even hints that, just like her, he wasn't as easy-going and bubbly as he presented himself as.
* LonelyAtTheTop: According to [[spoiler: Vayu]], Rao led a very lonely life despite being so popular and powerful, [[spoiler:and Leez is going down the same path]].
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: The only time he was ever reported to be seen crying was shortly before his disappearance. [[spoiler:He wanted to be able to hold his child at least once.]]
* PosthumousCharacter: At least as far as anyone knows, although they NeverFoundTheBody, and there is at least one report of him after his supposed death. Unfortunately, that report is supposedly his ''actual'' death.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: After she grows older, Leez is said to be his spitting image.

[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/62429a3530b6911a7789a58ba8aa643d.png]]

A childhood friend of Leez and Haas' younger brother. He was taken care of by Anna.
----
* BornLucky: He seems to have some kind of luck or foresight. He left the village before it was destroyed in order to buy Leez a birthday present, and told his brother they should wait at the magic guild during the attack on Atera before they open it up to refugees. He was also one of the very few babies that were born with triple Nil attributes and still managed to survive into adulthood.

[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/86e3d8d0cce4ac456daaabe555f57937.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250:[[labelnote:Click to see her appearance after "The Night It Rained Fire"]]https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/e30313fcd05fb6ef7b8a5fdcfbcc81ff.png[[/labelnote]]]]

The current Priestess of Fire, who summoned the fire god Agni when she was a child.
----
* AchillesHeel: Agni's. He may be the strongest being on Willarv, but he can only last as long as Brilith is alive, so targeting her is a good way to keep him restrained.
* {{Adorkable}}: Due to her FriendlessBackground, she's clueless on how friendships work and is elated when she and Asha argue, as that's a positive sign according to her research!
* AlwaysSecondBest: To her mother.
* AntiHero: [[spoiler:After awakening her past memories, she becomes ruthless and solely focused on TheNeedsOfTheMany.]]
* BarrierMaiden: Subverted. Other people thought she was the one who responsible for the barrier, but it was Agni who actually did the job for her while she maintained his existence in the human realm.
** Played straight later on, when she actually has to maintain the barrier herself. Other characters notice that it's not nearly as strong as it was before.
* BloodFromTheMouth: During both attacks on Atera.
* CleavageWindow: Her new outfit after the second attack on Atera has one. She actually wears a dress under it to shrink the window a bit.
* ColourCodedForYourConvenience: Invoked. As Priest of Fire, Brilith knows people expect to see her in red. She actually resents it a little since she doesn't even like red that much, and it's why she wears a blue dress in Season 2 (Agni didn't like it at first--it's ''Gandharva's'' colour!--but quickly relented when he realized how much it meant to Brilith).
* {{Determinator}}: She resists and tries to attack Sagara despite knowing that she is hopelessly outmatched.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Inverted. [[spoiler:She was quite sweet and kind before the TimeSkip, but after recovering her memories she became colder and far more ruthless. So maybe a Freezing Fire Queen.]]
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:Every time she's regained her memories of her past lives. This is the only time she's chosen to keep living, due to the universe being in peril.]]
* ElephantInTheLivingRoom: Her [[spoiler:drastic personality change]] has not gone unnoticed, but no one's sure if they should even bring it up.
* FantasticRacism: [[spoiler:After regaining her memories, she shows extreme hatred of both gods and suras, mainly nastikas. This stems from when the two races banded together to exterminate the first human race, of which she was a member. She and Leez even bond over their dislike for them.]]
* GoneHorriblyRight: How she feels about her success as a Priest. Thanks to Agni, she set up a perfect barrier to protect Atera... meaning that all of the Priest candidates left for better prospects as they were no longer needed, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero leaving Atera with few mages and thus practically defenceless when Sagara and co. break the barrier and attack]].
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: She has low self-esteem and frequently feels she's a burden to Agni.
* IllGirl: As a result of her sacrificing most of her lifespan to summon Agni and protect her city.
* ImperiledInPregnancy: [[spoiler:Flashbacks have her pregnant, crying and surrounded by flames and burned bodies. It seems to be a memory from her first life, although it may be of other reincarnations.]]
* LadyAndKnight: The Lady to Agni's Knight, though she eventually comes to hate the role. [[spoiler:Especially after regaining her memories, though for entirely different reasons.]]
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Agni deliberately prevents information that could stress Brilith from reaching her. She's somewhat aware of this. This takes a toll on her self-esteem, as it makes her consider herself a burden.
* LonelyRichKid: As the daughter of a Priest, she grew up mostly alone. Asha is her first (and only real) friend at first.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: After recovering her memories, she seems very willing to murder and will generally go for the kill even if there are other ways to defuse a situation. Case in point, [[spoiler:her attempt on Maruna's life.]] While it's true he ''has'' crimes to pay for, he could also be a very valuable ally - and situation isn't quite one where humanity has the luxury to choose. Yet, she went for the kill without even thinking about it first.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: When she thinks that Agni left because of her rudeness.
* TheNeedsOfTheMany: [[spoiler:Once she becomes the "true" her--in her eyes, one human life (Kaz's) is an acceptable price to pay if it means killing Maruna, a Rakshasha who's killed so many. In a less callous vein, she's willing to bury her grudge against Gandharva, accepting his existence as ultimately beneficial to the universe.]]
* NoSympathyForGrudgeholders: Averted. While she became quite jerkass(-ish) after remembering her past(s), it's hard to blame her for it. Brilith having a negative opinion of - or outright despising - gods and suras comes off as justified given all the shit they put her through. The closest this trope came of being played straight was with Gandharva, but it was ultimately averted as he refused to apologize when given the chance. Also helping is the fact that she's unwilling to let her grudges cloud her judgement when it matters most, and ultimately has humanity's best interests in mind.
* ObliviousToLove: Played with. She's aware that Agni treats her as special, but she doesn't know if it's because she's his summoner and he'd strike a romance with any of them, or if it's because of ''her'' specifically.
* OddFriendship: With Leez, post-TimeSkip. [[spoiler:Of course, this doesn't mean she's unwilling to suspect her after Leez comes back from Konchez in weird circunstances. However, she choses to trust the girl, as Agni does.]] Not so surprising, considering they were both heavily traumatized by Asha and have similarly low opinions on gods and nastikas.
* OneTrueLove: With Agni, albeit a very dysfunctional version. [[spoiler:She resents him enough that her final wish after every "awakening" is to have nothing to do with him again--but it's telling that the betrothal lasts only as long as they're the one the other loves most. In every moment of happiness in all of her lives, he was there, and she knows that when she dies, she'll inevitably meet him in another life and fall in love with him all over again.]]
* RapunzelHair: Before her TraumaticHaircut. Again post-TimeSkip, although shorter.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Asha's blue. Becomes the blue to Agni's red after [[spoiler:regaining her past memories.]]
* ReincarnationRomance: [[spoiler: With Agni; she states she fell in love with him in all of her past lives... but he never managed to hold onto her. She doesn't seem to be completely satisfied with this situation.]]
* TheResenter: [[spoiler:After regaining her memories, she admits that a part of her despises the humans around her--even the "old" Brilith's friends, Rana and Agwen--and wants to kill them all for replacing her kind.]]
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:Her mind can't handle the prolonged burden of countless past lives. Agni admits to her that she'll probably get worse as time goes on (though if anything, she's less crazy than he expected).]]
* SecretlyDying: As she tells Agni, she's glad no one realizes that her lifespan is coming to an end, since it means no one will worry over her.
* SilkHidingSteel: During ''The Night It Rained Fire''. She may be a relatively helpless human, but she'll show the sura that she won't cower. Sagara hates her all the more for it.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Her friends have tried to set her up with others, but in the end, she has eyes only for Agni. [[spoiler:Even when she hates him.]]
* SoleSurvivor: She's the last remaining member of the [[spoiler:original human race, although she didn't quite "survive" it in the normal sense. Rather, her soul was constantly reincarnated ever since.]]
* StepfordSmiler: In front of the people of Atera.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:After she recovers the memory of her past lives.]]
* TookALevelInJerkass: In conjunction with her level in badass.
* {{Tsundere}}: The sweet kind, though she only gets harsh when Agni's being particularly frustrating.
* TraumaticHaircut: Most of her hair gets burned off during the second attack on Atera.
* WatchingTroyBurn: Almost. During "The Night It Rained Fire", Sagara abducts her to ensure Agni won't interfere. She intentionally makes it so Brilith will have to watch as Atera is destroyed, but help arrives in time to stop it.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Gender-flipped, towards her mother Jibril Ajes.
* TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask: She plays the part of the graceful and gentle priestess, when in reality she's constantly tired and in pain due to keeping Agni summoned. She's even called a queen in-story.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: Due to summoning Agni.

The previous Priestess of Fire and Brilith's mother.
----
* ActionMom: Brilith's. Jibril had a Divine Affinity value over 10,000, which probably played no small part in her ability to go toe to toe with Rakshasa.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: To Brilith.
* BarrierMaiden: Her job as a priestess.
* ChildhoodFriends: With Laila Hemawati, the Priestess of Darkness.
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: Brilith's last memory of Jibril is her facing down an army of sura.
* LackOfEmpathy: [[spoiler: Implied. According to her childhood friend Laila, Jibril was skilled in silent magic, which is known to numb the user's feelings; supposedly, Jibril's were so numb that she saw people and the background as the same. She seemed to have kept some feelings, however, as she stated to Laila that she wished her daughter would never learn silent magic.]]
* MarriedToTheJob: Rarely saw her husband after becoming priestess, and didn't seem to care much for Brilith.[[spoiler: The last bit is possibly subverted as, according to Chandra, Brilith was her last memory.]]
* ParentalNeglect: Towards Brilith.
* PosthumousCharacter: She died around 10 years before the beginning of the story. [[spoiler: Chandra implies she was denied Heaven after dying.]]
* StepfordSmiler: Her daughter draws inspiration from the way she used to smile at the crowds.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: Due to summoning Agni.

[[quoteright:220:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ab3783bf839c94436417ffe89181d3a4.png]]

The #1 ranked fighter and #6 ranked magician who is a guest lecturer at the Atera Magic Academy. She is Claude's younger sister.
----
* ActionGirl: Her Asvins-Asvins-Kubera attributes mean that she's primarily focused on self-buffing; she fights by boosting her own strength and regeneration with ''hoti asvins hoti kubera'', flies into close range with ''Bhavati Kubera'', then gets into brawls with enemies while sealing their own abilities using ''Bhavati Asvins''.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Is this to Teo Rakan due to beating her out for the title of best fighter in two consecutive tournaments.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:She died years ago, and Claude struck a deal to bring her back. She's aware of the side effect of Hoti Visnu and has made her peace with it.]]
* {{Fangirl}}: To Asha Rahiro; partially this seems to be because Airi feels that any magician (like herself) who lacks a triple attribute gets a lower rank regardless of their strength.
* HiddenDepths: Season 3 reveals that there's more to her than just Asha's {{Fangirl}} / Claude's little sister.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Lazy, prone to bickering, and somewhat petty, but absolutely believes that a magician's duty is to protect people even at the risk of their own lives, and is one of the few people in the series who ''doesn't'' believe the TheEndJustifiesTheMeans--she's horrified at the excuses people try to make for [[spoiler:Asha's serial murders]].
* KungFuWizard: Her fighting style, thanks to the nature of her attributes. She's able to best Teo in tournaments and even becomes head of the Atera Fighters' Guild post-{{Timeskip}}.
* SharedFamilyQuirks: Much like how Claude often shirked his duties as Priest, Airi hates her bureaucratic job as guild president and jumps at the chance for a field task.
* TheTrickster: Lures Clophe away from the city during the attack on Atera.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: InUniverse, had [[spoiler:Asha not deliberately isolated Leez]], it's acknowledged that Airi likely would've become her mentor given their similar fighting styles. Now, Airi and Leez can both only lament that the opportunity has passed.

A triple-attribute creation magician who is the #4 ranked AA. She has a creation shop and is friends with Brilith and Airi. She is Saha's fiancee and Siera's cousin.
----
* BrilliantButLazy: She's the #4 ranked magician, but ran out on Lutz, forcing him to become the Priest of Creation, and regularly shirks her duties.
* BrokenPedestal: [[spoiler:After Asha uses her to murder Saha On, she decides Asha is evil. It doesn't matter if there's a [[OmniscientMoralityLicense greater purpose]], she's evil.]]
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] despite being a pureblood. She and her cousin both have brown hair and golden eyes.
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Saha's murder]].
* TheDitherer: She's been putting off marrying Saha On for over a decade, but at the same time, she won't call it off herself. She puts it off, hoping the situation will resolve itself.
* HasAType: She likes masculine, muscular men. Too bad her fiance is the [[DudeLooksLikeALady exact opposite]].
* TheMentor: Used to be this to Asha.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: In the wake of [[spoiler:Saha's murder by Asha, who she had released from prison]].
* OpaqueNerdGlasses: Wears a pair. Her eyes are rarely visible before the latter half of season 2.
* {{Revenge}}: After [[spoiler:Asha]] kills [[spoiler:Saha]], Lorraine hits her with her flying car and sets the vehicle to explode, killing everything in a 10km radius. [[spoiler:Yuta stops her.]]
* RunawayFiancee: She ''really'' doesn't want to get married to Saha, which is why she bailed on being the Priest of Creation and ran away to Atera.
* UnwittingPawn: Her unwillingness to believe [[spoiler:Asha's a SerialKiller leads her to break Asha out of jail and lead her to her next victim.]]

The president of the Atera Magic Guild and a shameless fangirl for Asha. Riche's younger twin.
----
* AmbiguouslyBi: She has a pretty blatant crush on Asha, and several of her lines indicate that she doesn't care about someone's gender as long as they have an attractive face.
* CharacterDevelopment: Subverted. Post-{{Timeskip}}, she claims that she's matured and no longer cares about looks... and is immediately flustered by [[{{Bishonen}} Lutz]].
* CoattailRidingRelative: She got her job because of the influence of her rich and famous sister.
* {{Fangirl}}: For Asha. [[spoiler:Until she's convicted of murder]].
* GlorySeeker: Anytime she does something impressive, she always makes sure everybody knows about it.
* HiddenDepths:
** While she's as shallow and vain as she typically acts, she's surprisingly perceptive and intelligent. She was actually the first person to figure out Brilith summoned Agni, and she's implied to recognize [[spoiler:Ran's DangerousForbiddenTechnique]].
** When Chandra forms a list of people who'd be willing to sacrifice themselves for the world--which he can confirm through insight--''Ruche'' is on that list, despite her seemingly cowardly personality. (That, or she really has grown since Season 1.)

!!Ran Sairofe
!!!Quarter, Varuna-Varuna-Varuna
[[quoteright:300:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kubera_ran2.png]]

A Quarter who joined the party to help navigate the Water Channel, he stuck around longer than expected. He's surprisingly strong, even able to match Asha in many ways, but consistently fails the university exit exams because he is hopeless with magic calculations. Luckily for him, he doesn't need calculations for magic.
----
* ActionDad: In Season 3, where he's the father to four children. His twin sons like simultaneously boasting about his skills while also insulting his poor control over his magic.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards Leez. He calls out Asha on her poor treatment of her and, after learning that Leez's village was destroyed by a superior sura, offers to adopt her into his family. He also extends what he can of this towards Yuta, even though he's mostly in the dark about a lot of Yuta's problems. But, he will help out when he can about emotions and growing up, and would really try to with the things he couldn't ever manage to help with. Yuta knows and appreciates this (hence keeping him in the dark about the really scary-dangerous stuff that would get Ran very dead very quickly).
* BigBrotherWorship: Downplayed. He considers his brother the greatest magician in the world, but he's not blind to his faults.
* BookDumb: His ability to use magic without requiring calculations has caused him to neglect some of his studies, though some of this just comes from comparison to Asha's CharlesAtlasSuperpower levels of magical knowledge.
* ButtMonkey: Serves as this upon joining the party. Him being a "relatively" normal (at least within the context of sharing the same space as a mysterious genius magician, a girl with a god's Name, and a sura) means that he, along with Leez, winds up providing much of the humor in scenes where the four are involved, often at his own expense.
* ButterFace: Like Leez, Ran is stated to be drawn more attractive than he actually is.
* CastFromLifespan: His DangerousForbiddenTechnique is apparently this.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: He and Rana eventually get engaged and going through wedding preparations by the end of Season 2.
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: [[spoiler:Whatever he used in his magic exams, it is this; Rana chews him out for using it, saying that using it could kill him, and his scores are almost declared invalid due to there being no precedent for it.]]
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Leez didn't even realize he was a magician at first and just thought he was... the boatman...?
* EntertaininglyWrong: ''All the time''.
* FacialMarkings: [[spoiler:Gains these when using his DangerousForbiddenTechnique.]]
* {{Fanboy}}: For [[spoiler:Rao Leez.]]
* HiddenDepths: When he first appears, he acts like a village idiot and is an utter ButtMonkey. Over time, he's shown to be [[SmarterThanYouLook brighter than he usually acts]], sensitive, surprisingly mature at times, and struggling with childhood trauma.
* TheIllegible: His handwriting is horrible. He actually has to type out his letter to Rana to so she can actually read it.
* KungFuWizard: Makes AA rank, and has SuperStrength on top of it.
* LonelyRichKid: Especially after Lutz left and [[spoiler:his mother tried to kill him during the Cataclysm.]]
* LockedOutOfTheLoop:
** He consistently knows less of what's really going on than the rest of the main cast (except, possibly, Leez), though it's getting a bit better; initially he knew next to nothing about Asha (not even her gender), thought Yuta was human, and thought Leez was an ordinary girl. Even now, while both Leez and Yuta seem to have at least a general understanding that something bigger is going on, he's completely ignorant.
** As it turns out, he hasn't exactly been given an accurate retelling of what happened to his mother...
* LoveAtFirstSight: He was attracted to Rana from the moment he first saw her. His feelings developed into actual love over the years.
* MadeOfIron: A minor RunningGag in the water channel is pieces of rubble breaking on his head. He doesn't really seem to notice.
* MayflyDecemberRomance: What he is afraid will happen between him and Rana. She's pure human, but he's a Quarter, so he ages at half normal rate. His own mother gave him a rather heartless lesson on the subject, since she was already going through the same thing with his father.
* NiceGuy: While it was less pronounced at first due to his dislike of Asha, Ran has a strong sense of justice and is doesn't need a reason to help others.
** When Leez runs off to try to save Yuta, he goes after her despite the incredible danger. He had no obligation to help her, he could have left without repercussions. He just cares too much about others to leave them behind.
** He seems to be this in comparison to most of the other human characters. After the incident where [[spoiler:Yuta loses control and eats Leez's face]], Ran is the only one concerned about Leez.
* ObliviousToLove: Despite his feelings for Rana, he has no idea that she loves him back. [[spoiler:This changes once she proposes]].
* OnlySaneMan: While he does have some issues, they are far more manageable than the other [[DysfunctionJunction members of the party]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: Because he's a Quarter, he looks 18 despite being 38.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: As shown by the Test of the Sword and his eventual AA rank, Ran is actually rather incredible by human standards. He has the rare ability to cast by sheer instinct, he's unusually strong, and incredibly durable. He's just surrounded by people (and beings) that are even more amazing.
* PapaWolf: When he sees his sons about to be attacked by a sura, he drops everything and teleports over to fight it off.
* PatientChildhoodLoveInterest: To Rana.
* PluckyComicRelief: He has his serious moments, but he's typically one of the goofier members of the cast and, when numerous characters TookALevelInCynic, one of the only people to remain mostly unchanged by the time of Season 3.
* ShipperOnDeck: He gives Yuta advice on his relationship with Leez, encourages him to tell her how he feels, and says that he'll support him.
* SuperStrength: Ran is stronger than the average ''Half'' even those from the same clan, which is known for its physical strength.
* UnlimitedWardrobe: Downplayed and Justified. He changes outfits frequently, but he has a preferred style and is filthy rich.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Has a phobia of Halfs, thanks to his childhood's trauma when his mother was driven insane by her sura blood and tried to kill him.

[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/teo_rakan_7449.jpg]]

The current Priestess of Chaos, and in fact the only Chaos candidate in the city, as well as the head of the Kalibloom fighter's guild.
----
* ActionGirl: She's more of a fighter than a magician. She gained an A+ magician's license (the second-highest one possible, excluding Asha's unique A++ rank) despite being ''all but incapable of using magic'' -- using nothing but brute strength and skill with a sword.
* ActionMom: Considering she's a badass with a sword and she's Elwin's mom, she definitely qualifies. She can even take on human-form rakshasa and hold her ground solely on her skill as a fighter.
* AlwaysSecondBest: Has been the runner-up to Airi Yui in two consecutive fighter's tournaments. She clearly chafes at this.
* BeneathTheMask: In front of [[spoiler:Gandharva]] and others, she's calm and cool. Inside her head, she's flustered by the hot guy she's letting stay in her house and worried about his secretive behavior.
* BirdsOfAFeather: With [[spoiler:Gandharva]]. They both were separated from family members and know that they are likely dead, but want to believe that they're alive anyway.
* CameBackWrong: [[spoiler:When Teo was resurrected, it was not with her original soul, meaning that philosophical and metaphysical questions of identity aside, the Teo Rakan who came back is technically a different person inhabiting the same body and most of its memories.]]
* ChildhoodFriends: With Airi. [[spoiler:Except no one was aware of this, leading to certain misunderstandings and misguided contempt on Teo's part.]]
* FacialMarkings: She has red marks under her eyes. They are easily mistaken for makeup, but are in fact a sign of her sura heritage.
* GeniusBruiser: She may be a poor magician due to her automatic 50% fail rate (due to her triple-Null birth attributes), but she still got an A+ ranking. All ranking tests have a speed calculations portion.
* HasAType: Comments at one point that [[spoiler:Gandharva's human guise]] is her type.
* HiddenDepths: [[spoiler:Is somehow capable of using silent Chaos magic. This is notable given that one, Kali disappeared a long time ago, leaving the Chaos attribute nil, and two, those who can use silent magic tend to be rather ruthless.]]
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler:Courtesy of being resurrected by Asha's Hoti Visnu, she had her time rewound back to before the beginning of Season II, judging by her being unaware of ever meeting Gandharva.]]
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: [[spoiler:She doesn't know the truth behind Airi's revival, as no one even knew they were friends and therefore they didn't think to tell her.]]
* LoopholeAbuse: She gained an A+ magician's license, despite being mostly unable to use magic, because there ain't no rule that says you have to use magic on the tests -- she overcame the tests that are meant to be solved with magic using ''brute strength''.
* MagicKnight: Of the use spells (i.e. Hoti Kubera) to augment physical abilities while fighting with weapons variety.
* MagicallyIneptFighter: Played with. She is described as having little magical skill outside of Hoti Kubera (likely due in large part to her attributes), but makes up for it by being highly skilled in the use of transcendentals [[spoiler:and, as it turns out, silent Chaos magic]].
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: She's the president of Kalibloom's Fighters' Guild who hates dresses and can't even peel apples, while [[spoiler:Gandharva is a {{Bishonen}} who can cook despite not even needing to ''eat'' and presents himself as a helpless human with no interest in combat]].
* OhCrap: She has a quiet one when she spots [[spoiler:Gandharva's sura form]] in the Lake of Reflection and realizes her [[spoiler:house-guest is a sura]].
--> '''Teo:''' (thinking) Stay calm. Don't tremble. I saw nothing.
* OnlyMostlyDead: [[spoiler:Due to her body being preserved when Gandharva [[HumanPopsicle froze it in ice made from his body]], it was possible for Asha to resurrect her using Hoti Visnu.]]
** [[spoiler:On the other hand, it is later revealed that Hoti Visnu merely resurrects the body, but the soul inhabiting it is an entirely different one.]]
* PowerHair: She's cut her flowing hair down to a short bob between seasons two and three.
* TookALevelInCynic: After the events of Season Two, she's no longer so willing to trust in strangers. [[spoiler:She only sponsors "Runa" and his "brother" because she has Maruna pegged as a NobleDemon and wants to determine his objective.]]
** [[spoiler:Somewhat subverted though when it is revealed that the soul that identifies itself as 'Teo Rakan' after her death in Season Two is not the same soul as the original.]]
* TragicDream: [[spoiler:Develops a crush on Gandharva that remains even after figuring out who he is. [[LampshadeHanging She even goes as far as to comment on her "hopeless dreams" of him allying himself with her]], among other implied things, during her LastStand against Sagara's troops. What makes it worse is that Gandharva decided he didn't want her to die after all, just before Sagara [[KickTheDog finishes Teo off right in front of him]].]]
-->[[TearJerker "I'm glad...Maybe my dreams weren't so hopeless after all..."]]
* WatchingTroyBurn: Averted. She [[spoiler:dies before Kalibloom is attacked]].
-->"I do not wish to survive when my city is collapsed.

!!!Half, Hereditary Attributes: Fire + Fire
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/elwin_1955.jpg]]

Teo's adoptive daughter, and one of the few Halfs capable of hearing sura speech.
----
* BlindingBangs: We don't see her eyes at all in her first few appearances, so she looks like a cute little girl with bunny ears and too-long bangs. [[spoiler:Her eyes are actually a really freaky red color (sclera and all) due to her Yaksha Half nature.]]
* HappilyAdopted: Elwin's adopted mom Teo genuinely cares for her and is heartsick with worry when she hears that Elwin [[spoiler:has been kidnapped]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: She's not as old as her adoptive mother, but she still looks far younger than twenty-seven years.

President of the creation brand Brimo and the richest person on the planet. Ruche's older twin sister.
----
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Her mind is always on money, even in the most dire of situations.
* EveryoneHasStandards: She disapproves of [[spoiler:Asha's killings]] and sends the evidence she's collected to Saha On when [[spoiler:Asha]] shows no remorse for them.
* LetsGetDangerous: Normally a cowardly SmugSnake, but when it comes to something she truly cares about (hint: not actually greed), she can be dangerously vindictive.
* OlderThanTheyLook: As a Quarter.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: Her large collection of god-level items were acquired through rather dubious means.
* SmugSnake: So, so much.
* ThemeTwinNaming: With Ruche.
* UngratefulBastard: Subverted. Asha saves her life and yet she's among those shunning her after the [[spoiler:Hoti Visnu]] reveal, as Leez observes. However, it's why Riche gives Asha the chance to defend herself, and it's only after Asha throws it back in her face that Riche decides to go in for the kill.

----
* BarrierMaiden: A male example. He is responsible for maintaining the Barrier of Earth.
* BeingGoodSucks: See MoreHeroThanThou below. It... did not end up well for him.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Averted, despite being a pureblood.
* EarlyBirdCameo: He can be seen in chapter 6 in Brilith's exposition about magicians, but doesn't make a proper appearance until season 2.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: He looks much younger than his thirty-one years.
* MeaningfulName: His name is similar to "Sierra", which means "mountain" in Spanish.
* MoreHeroThanThou: [[spoiler:Demands Kubera's bracelet back from Leez for the simple reason that the wielder will be used in Chandra's (potentially fatal) experiment, and out of altruism, he'd rather it be him than her.]]
* OnlySaneMan: One of the only priests who'd rather not give up his humanity for silent magic.
* SquishyWizard: He has a very high magic ranking in addition to being a priest, but is inept at fighting. That said, he's still able to smash a hole in the wall of the temple when frustrated with Claude.

A Half and fighter of Kalibloom. She competes in the Test of the Sword.
----
* AbsoluteCleavage: Her dress is rather revealing.
%%* ActionGirl
* BadLiar: According to Teo.
* CassandraTruth: She's fairly certain "Runa" is the same superior sura she saw slaughter a group of fighters seven years ago, but there's no proof and none of the others saw his face clearly. [[spoiler:Subverted; Teo believes her just fine and didn't tell her right away since Parr's a BadLiar.]]
* CatGirl: Her catlike ears and tail give her this appearance.
* MsFanservice: She is an attractive pseudo-CatGirl who wears cleavage baring dresses.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Is 88 but appears 22.
* SuperSenses: While she's no Garuda, her vision is excellent. A pureblood human would need technological aid to see what she can.
* SurvivorGuilt: [[spoiler:She blames herself for Teo's death due to leaving Teo's side to find help.]]
** [[spoiler:Happens again when she stays behind while a group of fighters confront Gandharva. She didn't go with them because she didn't have a god-level item with her - not that the items were of any use, since the group gets obliterated by Maruna.]]

[[quoteright:238:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/37f2d3be08217a96c622e5ea03b9048c.png]]

The current Priest of Death and Airi's older brother.
----
* AllForNothing: [[spoiler:The reason behind most of his actions in the second volume is to protect Laila. Immediately after he's managed to successfully manipulate Asha into murdering another Kubera name-holder in Laila's place, Laila sacrifices her lifespan anyway to summon Chandra, the God of Darkness.]]
* AmbiguouslyEvil: Although he justifies his actions by claiming that he serves TheNeedsOfTheMany, some of what he's done (like [[spoiler:'coincidentally' ensuring the defenses on God Kubera's artifacts were down right before Sura attacked to steal them]]) makes it unclear what side he's really on. The fact that he's introduced by [[spoiler:nearly killing Leez in an attempt to win an argument with Asha]] doesn't help.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: He's a fairly goofy guy and not all of it is a farce. Still good enough to be the Priest of Death, however.
* BigBrotherInstinct: [[spoiler:Loves Airi enough that he made a DealWithTheDevil for her sake.]]
* BodySurf: What seems to be the use of ''Bhavati Yama'', a spell he's quite skilled at using.
* DealWithTheDevil: [[spoiler:Well, with a god, actually,]] [[spoiler:implied to be Brahma.]] [[spoiler:In exchange for reviving his older sister, dead five years prior, he was given a lifespan of 200 years, but was made to become said god's pawn. He seems to be currently executing it's plans. Said deal was recently called off, as the god deemed him not useful anymore.]]
* TheNeedsOfTheMany: He is willing to ignore Asha's murders because he believes humanity needs her on their side, and is even willing to go so far as to suggest [[spoiler:offering Leez as a 'sacrifice' to Yuta, allowing him to savage her repeatedly because the Golden Knight will simply heal her and because, again, humanity needs Yuta on its side.]] However, it's unclear whether he's being entirely honest about his actual goals...
* ObfuscatingStupidity: He acts like a goofy layabout, but he actually has a much better idea of what's really going on than almost anyone else, and most of his actions have a deeper purpose behind them. For example, his 'lazing about' in Kalibloom was (according to him) actually because he was frantically trying to get Yuta to stay on humanity's side. In Season 3, Chandra amusingly lampshades it, noting that [[spoiler:he used to be someone pretending to be an idiot, but now that he lost his DealWithTheDevil and memories associated with it, he's just an actual idiot now]].
* PetTheDog:
** He sincerely cares about Laila, with Saha even referring to this as his one redeeming quality.
** Likewise, he's on good terms with Airi, whom he corresponds with regularly.
* PluckyComicRelief: Chandra refers to him as this after he [[spoiler:loses his DealWithTheDevil]], citing that the cheerless temple could use an idiot like him (as Claude chases after him and Laila in smiley face pajamas...).
* UsedToBeASweetKid: By Laila's accounts, he wasn't always a douche.

!!Laila Hemawati
!!!Quarter, Birth Attributes: Chandra-Chandra-Chandra
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/laila_6164.jpg]]

The current Priest of Darkness. A hardworking woman who hides her face behind a mask.
----
* BeautyMark: She has one under her left eye.
* BeneathTheMask: Her exasperation with Chandra isn't for show. [[spoiler:Compared to Brilith's (former) {{Tsundere}} attitude towards Agni, Laila genuinely dislikes her god and displays the bare minimum of tolerance just to appease him.]]
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Nobody seems to care at all about her ridiculous mask, presumably because (as the Priest of Darkness) she's powerful enough to do whatever she wants.
* ChildhoodFriends: With Jibril Ajes, Brilith's mother. They are shown together at age 12 (being a quarter, Laila at the time looked only six). She also worries about Brilith's safety and health due to this friendship.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Is the Priest of Darkness, but far from evil.
* DreamWalker: Darkness silent magic is called dream tracking; she's quite skilled at it. [[spoiler:She uses it several times to wake Brilith up from her nightmares.]]
* GivenNameReveal: [[spoiler:Her real name is Kubera]].
* {{Gonk}}: Most of the time she wears a ridiculously ugly green mask that makes her look like some sort of weird monster. Since it covers her entire head, it's not even obvious at first that it's not her real face.
* KungFuWizard: Along with being a skilled magician, she's good enough in physical combat to give Teo a run for her money, even if Teo held back due to Chandra's presence.
* MeaningfulName: "Laila" means "night" in various languages.
* MysteriousBacker: She created the A++ rank for Asha and gave her permission to use the Human Search System, despite not seeming to like her much.
* NoHeroToHisValet: She acts as she pleases around Chandra since, as his summoner, she knows she can get away with it. She's more respectful to Agni, namely because he's actually a decent person.
* SadisticChoice: [[spoiler:She's made to choose between Claude's life or the info he holds, as the other will be lost.]] The being behind it tells her that they're pleased with her choice, and to not let go of that part of her.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Aloof and ruthlessly logical, but also kind enough to look out for Brilith and [[spoiler:choose Claude's life over potentially valuable info]], showing that silent magic hasn't completely robbed her of her humanity.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Claude claims she was once the most compassionate person he knew, compared to her hardened self now.
* WhiteHairedPrettyGirl: She's implied to be extremely beautiful under her mask; the brief glimpses of parts of her face support this.
* YouCantFightFate: [[spoiler:Chandra warned her of her impending death when she was a child, telling her to hide her identity and to summon him if she found her fate approaching despite her efforts. She seemingly avoids death when Saha is killed instead, but then Season 3 reveals that she's still set to die at this rate.]] She does have a fighting chance, but it's certainly not coming to her easily.

!!Lutz Sairofe
!!!Quarter, Birth Attributes: Brahma-Brahma-Brahma
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lutz_8203.jpg]]

Ran's older brother, Eloth's Creation Priest, and president of the Creation brand Artram.
-----
* TheAce: Handsome, the Priest of Creation, talented enough to have been an AA if he'd tried, president of a company, and by Season 3, the richest person in the world according to Ran.
* AlmightyJanitor: He deliberately slacked off on his magic exams, so his rank is much lower than his actual ability. According to Tilda, he could have been an AA.
* AloofBigBrother: To Ran. It wasn't like this in the past, but he became distant after becoming the priest of creation.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: To Ran. Lutz is more successful, respected, and (as Ran whines to Agwen) better looking. That said, Ran doesn't genuinely resent him for it, likely because of [[PromotionToParent everything Lutz has done for him]] and because he knows their father pressured him into this path, when Lutz himself had no interest in prestige.
* BadassInANiceSuit: Is almost always seen in a black suit.
* BarrierMaiden: A male example. He is the current Priest of Creation and responsible for maintaining the barrier.
* BenevolentBoss: In a bonus chapter, he's shown working as a waiter to experience the conditions his employees do.
* BigBrotherInstinct: He responded so quickly to [[spoiler:Teo's request for assistance]] because Ran's in Kalibloom.
* {{Bishonen}}: The author describes him as the most handsome male character. According to Ran he has fangirls.
* ChickMagnet: One of the most eligible bachelors around. Agwen tried to set [[SingleTargetSexuality Brilith]] up with him, and the fact she wasn't even into ''him'' was the sure sign that something was up with Brilith's love life.
* {{Dismotivation}}: He slacked off on his magic exams because he didn't want to become the Priest of Creation and instead wanted to stay with his brother. Unfortunately, Lorraine skipped out and he has too great a sense of responsibility to do the same.
* KungFuWizard: In addition being the priest of Creation, it is mentioned that he once reached the later stages of a previous fighter's tournament.
* TheNeedsOfTheMany: [[spoiler:He's willing to overlook Asha's serial murder and defend her in a trial. His argument is that the lives that she's saved and can save in the future far outnumber the people she's killed.]]
* NotSoAboveItAll: Generally mature and sophisticated, but there are moments that remind you that he's related to Ran (around whom this side especially comes out).
* OlderThanTheyLook: As a Quarter. He's not above using it to poke fun at Lorraine, calling her old when he's actually her elder (but appeared 14 at the time to her 20).
* PragmaticHero: Good at heart--Asha even describes him (and Ran) as someone who walks the path of light despite his DarkAndTroubledPast. However, he's willing to put TheNeedsOfTheMany over morality and can veer into being TheSpock at times, albeit with more remorse than the likes of Claude.
* PromotedToParent: Before he left for school, he was one for Ran since their parents were constantly working. However, that aspect of their relationship has faded since then.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: A Priest and company president who doesn't mind using his position(s) to help the main characters out (the family connection doesn't hurt, but he's careful not to spoil Ran either).
* TheScapegoat: He killed his and Ran's mother in order to protect Ran, which Ran struggles to fully empathize with. Of course, by the time this is revealed, the reader can guess what ''really'' happened.
* TooCleverByHalf: A light-hearted example. Lutz is so prodigal (or extremely (un)lucky) that he failed at failing his magic exams! Case in point, despite guessing his way through the speed calculations and purposely screwing up the combat aspect, he got a higher rank than Brilith, the Priest of Fire who gave the exams everything she had.
* WhatTheHellHero: In the past, he called out Lorraine for leading [[DoggedNiceGuy Saha]] on when she had no intention of marrying him.

!!Saha On
!!!Quarter, Birth Attributes: Surya-Surya-Surya
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/saha_1891.jpg]]

The top-ranked magician on Willarv, as well as the Priest of Light and president of the Eloth Magic Guild. Lorraine's fiance. He demanded Asha's death constantly throughout her trial for 29 cases of homicide by magical accident, and argued fiercely (but unsuccessfully) for the passage of a Stolen Goods Law, which would have forced people to return stolen magical artifacts.
----
* TheAce: Genius magician with light powers and high authority that Asha herself described as a "natural born hero".
* BigGood: As the highest-ranking magician in the world, he's the one who takes charge when Willarv faces genuinely serious threats.
* {{Bishonen}}: He once won a beauty contest with no makeup while in his street clothes, and as a Quarter, he [[OlderThanTheyLook ages slowly]], giving him a young pretty-boy appearance.
* TheChainsOfCommanding: As he tells Lorraine, the hallmark of a leader is being able to put aside their emotions to do their duty--no matter how much it might pain him.
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler:His real purpose in having Asha's murder trial wasn't to get the death penalty for her, it was to gather all of the top magicians in one place so he can take them to fight in Rindhallow.]]
* DoggedNiceGuy: To Lorraine. He's been in love with her for years, but is very understanding and tells her to do as she likes, regardless of her family pressuring her to marry him.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: He looks so feminine that his fiancee pushed him to enter a beauty contest, which he won with no makeup while in his street clothes.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: The first time he officially appears, he receives a report of Sura attacking a town several hundred miles away... which he detects and blasts into oblivion without leaving his seat at the Mage's guild.
** His second chapter has him breaking into tears at the realization that one of the other magicians is complicit in Asha's murders, establishing both his sense of justice and his sensitive nature. And before both of these, our first {{Foreshadowing}} about him shows his silhouette arguing fiercely for the Stolen Goods Law (which would mostly be used against magicians like him) while the other magicians are clearly bored and disinterested.
* {{Foil}}: To Asha. They're two of the most powerful magicians in the world, but Saha uses his power for the greater good, while Asha uses it for personal gain. Saha is a stereotypically feminine man, whereas Asha is a stereotypically masculine woman. The author even describes him as the most beautiful man in the world, in contrast to Asha, the most handsome woman. [[spoiler:He also received an oracle about the god Kubera's impending demise, but both the gods who gave them the oracle and the contents of said oracle were likely very different.]]
* GivenNameReveal: [[spoiler:He's Eloth's Kubera.]]
* GoodIsNotSoft: Despite his soft and caring nature, he is utterly devoted to law and justice, and refuses to back down when he feels that someone is genuinely guilty.
* GoodIsNotDumb: He puts a lot more thought into his actions than it seems at first; in particular, [[spoiler:his zealous prosecution of Asha is actually intended to gather as many high-ranked magicians as possible in the Aeroplateau so he can transport them all to Rindhallow and make them fight in humanity's defense.]]
* InTouchWithHisFeminineSide: Beyond his feminine {{Bishonen}} appearance, he has a soft, sensitive personality... [[GoodIsNotSoft most of the time]].
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: He encourages Lorraine to live her own life, saying that he'll wait for her as long as it takes.
* IWillWaitForYou: He made a promise to Lorraine that he'd wait for her to be ready, no matter how long it took. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, he ended up dying first.]]
%%* KilledOffForReal
* LightEmUp: As the Priest of Light, he naturally has a triple Light attribute and attacks by blasting things with massive columns of light.
* LightIsGood: He's both the Priest of Light and one of the most straightforwardly heroic characters in the series.
* NiceGuy: So long as you're not [[spoiler:[[SerialKiller Asha]]]], he's kind, accommodating, and understanding. If you are [[spoiler:Asha]], see GoodIsNotSoft.
* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler:He gets killed relatively soon after being introduced in order to show just how far Asha is willing to go for her goals.]]
* WorldsStrongestMan: Officially, he is the most powerful magician on Willarv, although Asha may actually be more powerful.
* YouHaveWaitedLongEnough: His family has tried to invoke this on him by setting him up with other candidates (e.g. Rana), but he firmly put an end to it.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler:His constant exhaustion hinted that even if he hadn't died, his life was coming to an end due to numerous attempts at summoning Surya.]]

** Mirha was offered [[DealWithTheDevil Visnu's deal]], but rejected it.
** Both are powerful magicians whose magical ability was affected during Carte's destruction. Mirha's abilities were hampered, while Asha [[spoiler:gained them.]]
** Both have relationships with Leez that are affected by [[spoiler:their past with her father]].
*** Mirha is kind and supportive towards Leez. She empathizes with her situation, and spends time with her.
*** Asha is very cold towards Leez. She treats her as an inconvenience, and doesn't consider her suffering comparable to her own.
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: Her room is full of them.
* KingIncognito: She wears sunglasses, a hat, and a heavy jacket when she goes out so people don't recognize her.
* OlderThanTheyLook: She's a Quarter, so she only looks to be half her actual age.
* PaperThinDisguise: The fake name she gives Leez is "Mir." However, she intended it to be temporary from the start as she wanted to get to know Leez without any preconceptions staining the girl's behavior.
* StepfordSmiler: When she was young, she acted a lot like Leez did, smiling so she wouldn't be left alone.
* TeenIdol: Gives off this impression, compared to the other Priests. Apparently, she has rather zealous fans, much to her exasperation.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: In contrast to her yellow eyes. The difference is what makes Leez realize she's a Quarter.

An incredibly powerful magician, quite likely the most powerful one on the planet (though she's ranked 5th since she wasn't allowed to take the last part of the test). She found Leez shortly after her village was destroyed, and took her under her wing once she heard her name. Her goal is also revenge; on whom and for what, exactly, is still unknown.
----
* TheAce: What everybody in Willarv sees her as. With cause. She even has a fanclub.
* AlmightyJanitor: Her magician ranking is already quite high (5th), but the only reason she's not first is due to a technicality. Even the four mages above her are aware that Asha is more powerful than they are.
* AnArmAndALeg: She's very strongly implied to be missing her right arm, but she wears big bulky clothing to hide it.
* {{Bifauxnen}}: To the point that most people get pulled up short when they realise she's actually wearing a skirt. Which she actually does to point out that she's a she.
* BigBadWannabe: Very downplayed in the sense that Asha still presents a very credible threat, but... her character has shades of this. She believes herself to be Visnu's great envoy, the one all his plans were directed to, and the greatest [[TheChessmaster chessmaster]] on the board. The climax of season two completely disabuses her of this notion. [[spoiler:She was implied to be aiming the whole time to capture Ananta's power for her own the moment Sagara ressurrected him. So, she walks into Sagara's lair with the hopes of doing this - and Sagara laughs at her face. It's made then ''very clear'' that a mere human would never be even ''capable'' of this, so big is Ananta's power. She's quick to point to her that the whole time Asha was little more than a pawn, and that her Kubera-killing contributed to Sagara's own plans, not hers. She's so hopelessly outmatched that Sagara doesn't even bother with trying to kill her - which ends up being a mistake, fair enough, as Asha is able to cast ''Hoti Visnu''. However, even this ace in the whole of hers looks more like a child throwing a tantrum than anything else, and doesn't even do that much harm in the end. Yes, Sagara and her allies ended up disappearing for seven years, but Asha herself suffered the same, and now Sagara is back, ready to start everything all over again. All in all, she didn't suffer much damage as much as a setback. Not to mention Lorraine, who was also affected, and returned with the sole goal of avenging Saha. Plus, there is the fact that all of those that were affected by the spell are implied to have been given access to knowledge regarding the future, which was Asha's main strength.]] So yes, it's undeniable how much influence Asha has on the story overall, but it's not nearly as much as she believes. Off course, Currygom being Currygom, this could still be completely turned on its head.
* BrokenAce: What she sees herself as... with more cause. She was broken before she reached Acehood. In fact, it caused her to work hard to gain it.
* TheBully: A textbook definition in regards to Leez. Asha is ''incredibly'' abusive of the poor girl, much of which can only be accomplish due to the fact that Leez is extremely dependent on her.
* ChildProdigy: Subverted. [[spoiler:While she was incredibly intelligent as a child, she had very low divine affinity and thus little magical power. According to Saha, one can train to increase their divine affinity, but the results are usually negligible. Asha, however, managed to increase hers from next to none to over ''ten thousand''.]]
* ComesGreatInsanity: She rapidly deteriorates after [[spoiler:killing Saha and taking his power]]. Yuta, observes that her mind is falling apart and states that a human wasn't meant to hold such power. The better example of it may be the tantrum (ther's no other word for it, really) she threw when Yuta revealed [[spoiler:he was only helping her because he thought it would be the best for Leez]].
* CoolBigSis: Averted in every possible way in regards to Leez. Asha goes out of her way to be the exact opposite of this.
* CynicalMentor: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed.]] She verbally abuses Leez and has no qualms against hurting her to further her goals. [[spoiler:This makes more sense when it's revealed that her original intention in going to Leez's village was to kill her, and that she initially only protected Leez because she knew her father. As of the ''Your Justice And Mine'' arc, she's entered full blown EvilMentor territory]].
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: [[spoiler:She can use Hoti Visnu to turn back time for objects or people, but every time she does so, it eats away at her existence.]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Her entire planet was destroyed. [[spoiler:She's a SerialKiller. One of her victims was Leez's father.]]
* DarkHorseVictory: A comment from Maruna suggests Asha is siding with neither Sura nor humans, and is in fact aiming for this.
* DeadpanSnarker: Especially towards Ran.
* DealWithTheDevil: [[spoiler:She made some kind of deal with Visnu that allows her to use Hoti Visnu, which should be impossible after Visnu's disappearance.]]
* DeceptiveDisciple: To Lorraine
* DidntSeeThatComing: She's the "that" that Sagara didn't notice beforehand. As a human mage, she's so unbelievably outclassed in her regards to her sura opponents that Sagara, a nastika, didn't even bother with trying to stop her. And she's not wrong: in terms of power, compared to others in the setting, Asha is nothing. But the whole thing about ''Hoti Visnu'' does not revolve around power, does it?
* DissonantSerenity: At first, at least. Asha hardly ever changes her expression no matter what's going on around her - but, as the story progresses, this is increasingly subverted. She throws this completely out of the window close to Season Two's ending, when she learns that Yuta was only helping her because he thought it would be the best for Leez - she ''flips out completely'', going as far as scream out loud. How many times before that moment did Asha snapped like that?
* [[spoiler: DomesticAbuser: While not in a romantic relationship with Leez, many of their later scenes together are eerily similar to a real life example of this. Asha leaves Leez completely isolated from others under pretext of helping her, constantly destroys her confidence by accusing of her being useless and accuses her of PlayingTheVictimCard when as it becomes more and more evident how awfully she’s behaving. The situation eventually degenerates to the point Leez throws herself off a cliff multiple times trying to become a better fighter in order to try and get Asha’s respect. Asha’s responds by remarking on how lucky Leez has it because her bracelet allows her to learn a skill so easily. She ends up trying to murder Leez. Twice.]]
* EpicFail: She was set to this, at least according to Sagara. Interestingly, everything went according to her plan, except the climax: when she [[spoiler: went to Sagara's lair with the implied goal of stealing Ananta's power, the nastika made it very clear to her that she would never be able to do this. So, basically, Asha failure was so big that stopped her from ''trying'']].
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Is the subject of a number of female crushes.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: She went from a little girl [[spoiler:with a divine affinity of less than 100]], to one of, if not ''the'' strongest magician on Willarv [[spoiler:and an infamous SerialKiller]].
* FreudianExcuseIsNoExcuse:[[spoiler: She made a DealWithTheDevil with Vishnu as a child and is in the middle of fulfilling it. She knows she still needs to complete the final "clauses" of her bargain, which at the very least means killing Sasha Oh and his fiancé: her longterm mentor Lorraine. Who does she take her frustrations out on? Leez, because her psychological state was too fragile to for her to properly defend herself.]]
* GiverOfLameNames: When she tried to come up with a name for Yuta, she came up with three names; Blacky, Whitey, and Spotty. It's her only shown attempt at naming something.
* GreenEyedMonster: Towards Leez for a variety of reasons.
* GoodAngelBadAngel: [[spoiler:Rao was the good one, encouraging her to 'live for the living' and supporting her in hopes that she would redeem herself in the future. Claude is the bad one, encouraging her to 'discard' Leez and even attempting to kill Leez for her.]]
* ImportantHaircut: [[InvokedTrope Invoked.]] [[spoiler:She cuts her hair with magic to test her resolve. If she has any doubts, she has the chance to subconsciously miscalculate and [[NightmareFuel slit her own throat]]. She's been doing this since she was ''ten''.]]
* InnocenceLost: The "Asha" arc, which focuses on her past, showcases how this happened to her. At first, no matter how smart or talented she was, Asha was still just another little girl. The whole Carte debacle - and all the shit she went through related to it - destroyed that child.
* IntelligenceEqualsIsolation: When she was at Eloth's university, she was ostracized because of her incredible intellect and power. Now she has a fanclub, but the members usually just admire her power and fame without really knowing her. She also has problems understanding the perspective of the average person, since she often takes her own knowledge for granted.
** However, this is at least partially self-inflicted. Many other brilliant magicians have strong relationships with friends and family, including Claude.
* ItRunsInTheFamily: According to her mother, Asha inherited her personality from her father. Lilith worried that it could go beyond simply that, as her father died young - [[spoiler:and she was right in worrying, as the ''Hoti Yama'' spell showed that Asha was never going to live a long life]].
* ItsAllAboutMe: She doesn't care who or how many she kills to gain power. She even says something similar to it when being frank with Leez: unless she comes out as the "victor", nothing matters.
* KickTheDog: Asha is ''made'' of these. [[spoiler:Frequent after reviving Teo. Whereas she was at least cordial to Leez previously, she kicks her belittling, abusive behavior up a notch and rarely misses a chance to hurt Leez emotionally or physically.]]
** [[spoiler:She frequently resurrected her victims in order to test out her spells on them. While the spell she used resurrects them with a different soul (usually that of a low level Asura), her victims had no idea they weren't human.]]
** Then she [[spoiler:reveals that all her past PetTheDog moments were her thinking of Rao. She was never thinking of Leez herself, just the girl's father. Leez dislikes people treating her differently because of her father.]]
** However, she was also on the receiving end of this once. [[spoiler:Visnu could have healed her arm, but never did it, and simply as a punishment for a relatively small transgression. Honestly, almost everything in regard to her relationship with Visnu has some element of Asha suffering from this]].
* LadyLooksLikeADude: To the consternation of Brilith and Ran.
* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Father, Like Daughter]]: Much to her mother's worry.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: To Brilith. When hovering between life and death, the only reason she has to come back is because she can't let Asha be alone.
* MysteriousBacker: For Leez. So far, Asha has been firmly on Leez's side, but she can be very abusive and it's clear she still has her own agenda going that may or may not be in Leez's best interest. [[spoiler:Turns out her ultimate goal is to acquire the power of Ananta.]]
* MysteriousPast: Her dealings with Rao, Visnu, and Kubera, and her experiences on Carte are still unclear.
* NotSoStoic: Whenever certain details about her past come up, she expresses surprising emotion. In the present day, she even appears [[spoiler:distraught after attacking Leez while the latter was trapped in an [[EscapePod escape pod]] that was about to launch.]]
** It's also PlayedForLaughs during a brief travel montage when Asha witnesses Leez eating with a pair of chopsticks in each hand and is completely shocked.
* PetTheDog: Every once in a while, she'll do something nice for Leez. [[spoiler:This comes to an abrupt end in Season 2. See KickTheDog]].
** She's also very respectful to Yuta, whom she treats as more of an equal. [[spoiler:Or so he thought. The impression he has by hearing her through insight was that even this was solely done out of a desire to use him]].
* PowerAtAPrice: She can use ''[[spoiler:Hoti Visnu]]'', sacrificing [[spoiler:her existence]] little by little with each use. To get the ability in the first place, she sacrificed [[spoiler:what she would come to consider most precious, which is implied to have been Rao, whom she hadn't met yet]].
* RankInflation: Despite getting the best scores in history on her magic exams, she wasn't allowed to take the last test (compatibility with a barrier stone) because she doesn't have a triple attribute, meaning it would be very dangerous. Normally, the highest rank for someone who can't take that exam is A+, with AA being the rank above it. Her examiner invented the A++ rank on the spot as a mark of her achievement. During the siege on Atera, she proves that she can use a barrier stone anyway (by changing the attribute of the barrier to match her attributes, something assumed to be impossible). The arc is named "AAA," implying ''that'' is the rank she deserves.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Leez's red. Blue again to Ran's red.
* {{Revenge}}: Her goal. [[spoiler:It's a stepping stone.]]
* SanitySlippage:[[spoiler: Starts to become increasingly unstable as the time for her to finish her mission approaches.]]
* {{Sadist}}: From Asha's backstory, it is fairly obvious that [[spoiler:she subconsciously resents all the people in her life who back-talked about her amazing talents and how they amounted to nothing, but denies her envy and tells herself she just wants power. All the death and mayhem she caused in pursuit of revenge is, in fact, her trying to take out her childhood hatred towards her friends on random people who happened to have something in common with the population of a dead and buried planet.]].
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: Asha's connections are good enough to let her literally get away with murder. [[spoiler:''32 times.'']]
** [[spoiler:That is, until new evidence comes to light. The reveal of Asha being capable of Hoti Visnu, and all the victims having the name "Kubera" reopens the case, and Saha On is pushing for the death penalty.]]
* TakeAThirdOption: Pulls this frequently, like when she changes the attributes of the barrier in Atera.
** [[spoiler:PlayedForDrama when Claude prevents her from killing Laila. She doesn't want to kill Leez, but needs to kill one more Kubera. So what does she do? Go after the third Kubera, Saha On, the number one magician of the whole planet.]]
* TheStoic: When you see any emotion on her face, you know it's something big.
* TheSvengali: To Leez.
* TongueTied: She is physically prevented from talking about certain things.
* TookALevelInJerkAss: A lot of her PetTheDog moments towards Leez disappear over the course of Season 2.
* WorldsStrongestMan: She's ranked fifth most powerful mage in the world, but that's just because she wasn't allowed to take the last test. All four of her "superiors" are well aware she is much, much better than them. One of them is even the president of her fanclub.
* WouldHurtAChild: [[spoiler:Some of her murder victims were children.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Very light blue.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: [[spoiler:She's actually 17 years old since she ceased to exist for three years]]. Wouldn't guess it by looking at her.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler:She has only a year or two left of her lifespan. She deliberately overused ''Hoti Visnu'' to disappear for those three years, since she wouldn't have lived long enough otherwise.]]

[[folder:Kasak Rajof]]
!!Kasak Rajof
!!!Half, Clan Attribute: Fire, Hereditary Attribute: Destruction
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kasak_25.jpg]]

The only dragon Half on the planet, and strong enough to fight multiple higher-level sura on his own. Famous across the world.
----
* ActionDad: As a 132 years-old dragon Half, he has the power of a 5th stage Rakshasa. He also has a 32 year old daughter.
* TheAtoner: He tries not to make excuses for his actions during the Cataclysm and simply helps out the best he can.
* CantKillYouStillNeedYou: He might know something about Kalavinka's whereabouts, hence why Maruna needs him alive.
* CommonalityConnection: There's a lot he finds irritating about Yuta and is justifiably suspicious of his role and background. But, they both realise that they have a lot in common, even if they are likely to wind up at odds down the line. And, both could get something out of any relationship they cobble together.
* DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: As a child, he badly injured his mother without thinking. It's also mentioned in the author afterword that he blew Shess's head off a few times while growing up (even before he knew Shess could survive that), although it's unclear if that was actually unintentional.
* FireForgedFriends: With Leez, due to being each other's only human company for seven years in the sura realm.
* ForgivenButNotForgotten: He's left emotional scars on Agwen that haven't yet healed, and though his celebrity status seems to help mitigate any prejudice against him, Laila reminds him that in Rindhallow, they have ''not'' forgotten what he did during the Cataclysm.
* GoodIsNotNice: He's actually quite heroic, and once things start going down, he essentially dedicates his life to helping out. He's just... not a pleasant person to spend any amount of time with.
* HappilyMarried: Subverted, in sharp contrast to his parents. Whereas Ian still loved Taksaka despite his true nature and Taksaka cared for Ian even without his earrings, Kasak's wife despised him once she realized what he was truly like and although Kasak initially insisted in ''Literature/TheFinite'' that he'd love her without the earrings, he ultimately didn't.
* HumanMomNonhumanDad: His parents were a Quarter and a Nastika. Their story is told in the side novel ''Literature/TheFinite''.
* NeverGotToSayGoodbye: Visnu lied to him about when Ian was due to die (namely so that Taksaka wouldn't get his earrings back until Ian's death wouldn't be so raw) and thus he only returns home long after she's passed, much to his dismay.
* NotSoStoic: His emotions are more muted than nonexistent, and he infrequently expresses frustration in his inability to feel without the earrings.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler:When Yuta believes Kasak was delayed in the Crescent Gate because had to get away from Taraka, Kasak casually informs him that no, he just killed her.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: Asha reminds Leez that as a Half, Kasak is old enough to have a grown daughter, despite looking barely older than Agwen (who herself is OlderThanTheyLook). Amusingly, Kasak tends to interact with people who look younger than him but are ReallySevenHundredYearsOld, and so Maruna (~1000 years old) still calls him a kid, and Kasak calls Yuta (a couple hundred years old) ''[[UsefulNotes/KoreanHonorifics hyung]]'' as a barb and Shess the same unironically (Shess being a longtime family friend and almost as old as the universe).
* OverprotectiveDad: He doesn't like it when someone else calls Agwen 'Princess'.
* PapaWolf: He jumps between this and ParentalNeglect as the result of his dragon side. When he wears the earrings, he is a caring, cheerful dad. But when he takes them off, he becomes cold-blooded and extremely neglectful of his daughter. That said, there are signs that he does care for her even in that state.
* PreMortemOneLiner: To [[spoiler:Samphati]]:
-->Those great transcendentals of yours.. Go ahead and use them over there.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: When tired of Agni's attempts at ObfuscatingStupidity, he threatens to take Agwen and flounce out of the planet (and conflict) altogether.
* TheStoic: As a dragon half, he's almost completely emotionless when he's not wearing his [[PowerLimiter earrings]].
* StrongFamilyResemblance: He looks very much like Taksaka (which was one of many points of contention between them during Kasak's childhood). It weirds Agni out to have someone with Taksaka's face be so... talkative.
* UnableToCry: At least, not without his earrings. After his Emotional Resonance induced rampage during the Cataclysm, he shows no emotion, despite having killed his wife. A distraught Agwen asks why he can't even shed a single tear for what he has done. Kasak responds that he can only do so if he has his earrings, as he doesn't feel love for his late wife or his daughter without them. He then tells Agwen that if she wants him to cry she will have to help him find his earrings.
* UncertainDoom: At the end of the second season: [[spoiler:he hasn't returned from the Cresent Gate. Yuta's not sure if the beings that reside within would have seen him as an enemy and killed him, or as an ally.]] In Season 3, he returns alive, though not necessarily well.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Inverted. He's trying to make things up to Agwen for his actions during the Cataclysm, if stunted and awkwardly.
* WingedHumanoid: He can manifest wings of black [=fire/smoke=] to fly.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler:Season 3 makes it clear that he's dying.]]

!!Agwen Rajof
!!!Quarter, Birth Attributes: Agni-Agni-Agni
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/agwen_7734.jpg]]

Kasak's daughter, and a professor at the magic university in Eloth.
----
* AffectionateNickname: "Princess", courtesy of her father. The reason for it, however, is rather depressing.
* TheCaretaker: It's hinted she was this to her mother, who became mentally ill after Kasak crippled her.
* FieryRedhead: Rather temperamental and willful.
* HotWitch: She's a magician, and her hat is very reminiscent of a witch hat. She even has a staff that resembles a brook.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: She seems unaware that Shess is a superior sura. When Agni questions her, she refers to him as an old acquaintance of her father's and is confused as to why he would ask. On the other hand, she's aware by Season 3, so either she tried to lie to Agni or she's been informed since then.
* TheMourningAfter: It's implied she hasn't been in another relationship since the Cataclysm. She does mention to Shess that she'd be happy to find a nice man, but the addendum of how it's fine now that her dad isn't around to kill her boyfriend again suggests she's still reeling from the trauma.
* NiceHat: A witch's hat that she loses in the Crescent Gate.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Looks to be in her thirties, but as a Quarter, she's in her sixties.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers: Or rather, Screw the Rules, My Dad's a Really Hungry Dragon! When she's told that she can't just buy uncooked meat from the chef, she makes it clear that she's not taking no for an answer. (Once they realize who it's for, they quickly acquiesce.)
* SecretKeeper: She's mentioned to be one of the people who knows about Airi's circumstances, and she's also one of Shess's status as a Rakshasa (though Chandra is frustrated that she's not as secretive as he wants her to be).
* SternTeacher: It's mentioned that she's so strict that she fails most of her students, and that one of her former students switched schools ''just to get away from her''. Asha thinks well of her as a teacher, though.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Noted to resemble Ian, her grandmother. Others were hopeful that it'd soften Taksaka--who hated Kasak for not looking like Ian--to her.
* {{Tsundere}}: Towards Kasak. Leez is surprised to see the (exasperated) way she treats her own father, but Asha tells her that their situation is... complicated. What with, you know, the whole "he killed several people she loved and feels nothing for her without his earrings on" mess.
* WhatBeautifulEyes: She inherited her blue eyes from [[spoiler:her ancestor Utpala]].
* YankTheDogsChain: She's excited to be living in Mistyshore in her debut... only to immediately be sent to Atera as Brilith's backup. In Season 3, [[ThrowTheDogABone she finally gets her wish]].

!Sura Realm

[[folder:Sura and Sura Clans in General]]

The enemies of the gods and by extension humankind. They are ageless monsters that develop in stages and possess many powerful and dangerous abilities.
----
* TheAgeless: Sura can't die of age.
* AlienBlood: Some sura have normal red blood, but others bleed purple or black (like the Taraka clan).
* AnimalisticAbomination: The lesser sura may actually fit this trope better by virtue of looking rather similar to various members of the animal kingdoms (and [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons dragons]]). The exception to the rule appears to be the Taraka clan, which definitely is on the more eldritch side of things aesthetics-wise.
* AntiMagic[=/=]PowerNullifier: The Taraka can seal off all mortal magic and the vast majority of sura magic with their open eyes.
* ApeShallNeverKillApe: Downplayed; this only applies to those of the same clan, and even then there are exceptions. Case in point, Maruna argues with Samphati that most Garuda nastikas were against Akasha's plan of killing Garuda's children to wake him up. The exception here being not only Akasha but Samphati herself, whose sole obsession in life is [[spoiler:to make Yuta suffer, with death if necessary]].
* ArchEnemy: Some sura clans have this dynamic between them, such as the Anantas and the Garudas. The Tarakas are this to pretty much everyone.
* ArmorIsUseless: There are enough [[ArmorPiercingAttack transcendentals that ignore armor]] that it's practically worthless.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking[=/=]AsskickingEqualsAuthority: How the sura run their clans. If a King dies, the strongest sura (a Nastika) will succeed him/her.
* BeingEvilSucks:
** Saying they are evil is very much an undeserved generalization and simplification of a very complicated reality. However, most of them normaly partake in things that are ''very'' questionable, and it comes at a price. They are the most powerful species in the universe. As a whole, however, they cannot avoid the fact that they must devoure each other to survive, they're despised by pretty much everyone else because of their antics, and to top it off, when Visnu separated the realms at the Cataclysm, they got the short end of the stick, while the puny, insignificant humans they screwed over and over again remained in their much less hostile realm. Billions of years of doing whatever they wanted and what they got out of it? Their numbers are dwindling, the few remaining are getting weaker and weaker over time, their clans are being destroyed, and their realm is the one most affected by the Taraka attack. And those billions of years weren't flowers, either. Losing children, friends and partners - or even one's own life - are every day things. One can die simply by angering the wrong foe, and even if they are killed for no reason at all, unless one is strong enough to seek vengeance, there is literally nothing to be done. In short, suras operate under a very different set of morals and rules, which generally put them at odds with everyone else, and makes life in their society in general utterly ''suck''.
** [[TokenHeroicOrc Shess]] lampshades it when he points out that the clans most likely to survive the Taraka attacks are those whom the gods are willing to personally help--that is, the clans who ''didn't'' go around slaughtering humans simply for forsaking fiendish magic.
--->'''Shess''': He who has done less wrong has less to fear.
* BizarreAlienBiology: Sura are (with rare exceptions) carnivores. All sura are decended from the [[MonsterProgenitor Nastikas]] and are weaker the more distant the line of descent. Sura with human forms do not actually wear clothing, but parts of their sura form that take the form of clothing.
** Nastika were [[BornAsAnAdult born as adults]] at the [[TimeAbyss dawn of the universe]]. They have a human form and a sura form. They can switch genders at will (except for the Vritra) and have a degree of control over their appearance.
** Rakshasa are sura with at least one Nastika parent. Like the Nastika, they have a human form and a sura form. However, their gender is determined by the amount of time their parents spent as male or female. They age in a series of five stages with only the first resembling conventional growth. They have to be in their human form to grow into their next stage, which requires the Rakshasa to accumulate a certain level of experience and a trigger of some sort. The growth is abrupt, lasting seconds at most, and can cause dramatic shifts in the Rakshasa's personality.
** Upani are sura with at least one Rakshasa parent. Like the Rakshasa, they grow in a series of five stages, but they do not gain a human form until they reach their third stage.
** Mara are sura with Upani parents. Like their parents and grandparents, they grow in a series of five stages, but only obtain human form when in 5th stage. However, 5th stage maras are extremely rare.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Sura place no value on life itself. They think nothing of murder for food or fun and only bother learning not to kill fellow clan members or allies.
* BornAsAnAdult: The Nastika
* ConflictKiller: The Taraka clan. Suras from different clans generally do not see eye to eye, and it's even worse with the gods. The Taraka attack is so bad that they have put aside their differences, because otherwise (and even then, actually) the literal end of the universe is very, very possible.
** [[spoiler:Ancient humans were this billions of years ago. Like today, suras and gods banded together to end what was seen as a common threat.]] [[spoiler:According to Brilith, however, humans were never as dangerous as the Taraka or as the nastika themselves. Still, this stands.]]
* TheDreaded: To humans, a sura is an immense danger and an object of hatred and fear. Asha, who is quite possibly the [[WorldsStrongestMan strongest magician on Willarv]], states that she can defeat any Upani easily so long as they aren't fifth stage. Upani are ''far'' weaker than Rakshasa and Nastika.
** The Taraka clan. While physically weak ([[spoiler:although they are getting stronger now that their King has developed]]), their ZergRush tendencies and the fact that Nastika transformations into sura form are considered transcendentals (therefore, sealed by the Chaos eyes and handicapping the strongest fighters of any clan) makes them dangerous when they get serious.
* EldritchAbomination: The Kings in particular. They are immortal and powerful beings who have existed since the start of this universe that can kill even gods. Gandharva, even at his smallest size, dwarfs Kalibloom.
* EnemyMine: Gods and suras have allied to defeat the Taraka clan. Yes, things are ''that'' bad.
** Not the first time it happened, however. The two races also fought together [[spoiler:to extinguish the first human race]] eons in the past.
* GenderBender: The Nastikas can change their gender at will (the male forms are generally stronger than female). And a Rakshasa's gender is determined by the time each parent (if they are both Nastika) has spent as each gender, which means there are more males than females.
** The Vritra's clan Nastika used to have both males and females, but after the deal with Visnu, they all changed to male and lost their gender-bender ability.
* TheGoldenRule: Averted to hell and back. The fact that suras don't uphold this is the root of many, ''many'' problems.
* HealingFactor: They can regenerate very quickly, and it's one of their primary defenses. The other is ''DODGE!!!''.
* HumanoidAbomination: All superior sura have human forms, but all retain at least one sura trait they can't change.
* ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty: 5th stage (full grown) rakshasa look like young adults.
* LittleBitBeastly: Even in human form, every sura has a few non-human traits. Some have fur on their arms and legs, others have fangs or UnusualEars like bird wings, fish fins, animals ears, and so on. The lower the sura's rank, the more traits are retained from their sura form.
* MassivelyNumberedSiblings: The nastikas were alive when the universe began, and haven't got sterile since then. Do the math.
* MightMakesRight: The sura society begins and ends on this belief. The king is always the strongest sura of the clan at any given moment. The weak have no rights - if the strong devour them or simply kill them for amusement, no one's likely to bat an eyelash.
* MonsterProgenitor: The Nastika.
* TheNeedless: The nastika don't need to eat at all, they recover vigor by resting, which can be as simple as lounging about for a while. Rakshasa only need to eat to replenish vigor, and even that goes away once they reach their fifth stage. Sura don't sleep.
* OedipusComplex[=/=]DaddysGirl: The relationship of a sura with his/her father. A male sura will usually compete with his father for his mother's affection, and the father can even kill the son for that. In contrast, a female Sura is usually loved and spoiled by her father, even more if she resembles her mother.
* OneDegreeOfSeparation: Justified. All nastika were born at the dawn of the universe and the rakshasa are their kids. It would be stranger if they didn't all know each other somehow.
* OneNameOnly: Sura don't seem to use any sort of family name. They do re-use names, though.
* OutlivingOnesOffspring: Most if not all nastikas experienced the deaths of several of their children. Those like Shess, that belongs to one of the first generations of rakshasa, are said to be extremely rare. Given the power gap between generations and how the sura have a dog-eat-dog society, it's possible that most suras suffered this at least once.
* TheRightOfASuperiorSpecies: Played as straight as possible. Some of the nastikas have kill counts right up there in the millions (and some in the billions, and [[spoiler:Gandharva]] in special in the ''trillions'').
* ShapeshifterDefaultForm: Sura with human forms only take their sura forms to hunt or fight.
* SheIsTheKing: The leader of the clan is called the king regardless of their [[GenderBender preferred gender]].
* SmugSuper: They tend to view themselves as inherently superior to humans--a mindset Brilith feels is undeserved, as it stems more from being [[BornWinner Born Winners]] than any real effort on their part.
* TheSocialDarwinist: Is it really necessary to explain this?
* TimeAbyss: The Nastika were born at the beginning of the universe.

First King of the Ananta clan. Was said to be the strongest being in the universe.
----
* TheAce: He was good at ''everything''.
* ObliviousToLove: He was unaware of Sagara's affections and sincerely congradulated her each time she told him about a new lover.
* PlotTriggeringDeath: He was killed by [[spoiler:God Kubera]], which seems to have indirectly kickstarted the plot.
* PosthumousCharacter: He died around 500 years before the start of the webtoon.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Basically everyone agrees that he was the best Nastika, not just in terms of strength but leadership and character. When Taksaka was rampaging through his clan, Ananta (who was strong enough to defeat even Taksaka) instead figured out a way to calm him down without killing him, since the Dragon clan couldn't reproduce and he didn't want to reduce their numbers any further.
* TooDumbToLive: He trusted the one who was after his life. Sagara of all people admit this on one of her thoughts on the matter.
* WorldsStrongestMan: Even long after his death, the current strongest man in the world, Vritra, is still only known as the "strongest being in a universe without Ananta."

Second King and Sagara's former lover.
----
* CoolMask: Had one, with horns and everything.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: When Ananta died, he encouraged Sagara to leave him and be with Vasuki, the strongest in the clan after Ananta. It turned out to be unnecessary; Vasuki took his female form, which is weaker then Manasvin's male form, so Sagara could have both the power she sought and be with the man she loved.
* NotSoDifferent: See Garuda's entry.
* PosthumousCharacter: Although we don't know how he died.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives an epic one in chapter 2-55 about the hypocrisy evident in the "justice" of the gods and Gandharva and Menaka's "pacifism."
* WhatDoesHeSeeInHer: Most people can't understand why he loved Sagara so much. He says it's because she's very honest about herself.

[[folder:Sagara]]
!!Sagara
!!!Nastika, Source Attribute: Darkness
[[quoteright:246:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kubera_sagara_2624.png]]

Third and current King of the clan. She is currently working with god Kubera for some unknown purpose.
----
* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Almost no one in the Ananta clan approve of her being king; in fact, only a single nastika does so. That's actually another reason why she and Gandharva are NotSoDifferent.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Vasuki remains in love with her, but she moved on centuries ago. There's actually a very real possibility that, while she truly cared for him - and still does so -, she was never ''in love'' with him, because she always loved Ananta.
* AmbitionIsEvil: ''Evil'' is a bit of a stretch, but it's not like Sagara is a saint, either. This is how (most of) the Ananta clan sees her: a power hungry bitch that always wanted the throne for herself and stole it by breaking the traditional succession order. It says quite a bit that Vasuki - the true king, had traditional sura succession been respected - is the only nastika backing her, and this happens to be the sole reason why she's still king.
* AMotherToHerMen: She treats her subordinates surprisingly well, often discuss her plans with the Rakshasa and won't put them in suicidal situation just to save her own life, quite the opposite. At least one time she put herself in mortal danger to let Riagara and Pingara escape safely from an opponent they couldn't defeat.
** She's also heavily implied to ''literally'' be the mother of the Rakshasas she leads. Riagara's attributes and appearance are a mix of Sagara and Vasuki's, while Pingara's attributes and appearance are a mix of her and Manasvin's. Cloche and Clophe's ancestry is a little more unclear, but if Sagara was one of their parents then the other one would have been a Water-Light Rakshasa.
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: Subverted, Sagara is not the strongest Nastika in the clan, Vasuki is, but since she has his backing, no one else can go against her.
* AtLeastIAdmitIt: Her attitude towards Gandharva is basically this. She recognizes her flaws and isn't ashamed of them; in fact, this was one of the things that made Manasvin fall in love with her.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Has been warned of this. Even if she does manage to bring Ananta back, he'll have no soul or mind, and will be simply a mindless zombie. Given how powerful Ananta was, this bides disaster for... everyone, really. She chose to ignore the warning, so it's yet to be seen whether this will become true.
* CannotSpitItOut: Was never able to confess her feelings to Ananta.
* ChekhovsGunman: She's first seen in a brief flashback panel alongside Manasvin (Ep. 20) without any indication that she would become one of the ten main characters.
* DidntSeeThatComing:
** She killed [[spoiler:Brilith due to the fact that even if it pissed off Agni, she didn't care if he rampaged around the sura realm as long as he was no longer able to return to the human one]]. Unfortunately, she didn't take into account the LoopholeAbuse Agni took advantage of in order to come back.
** Asha [[spoiler:casting ''Hoti Visnu'']] put a severe drawback on her plans. Then again, it's not entirely her fault, as it seems Asha did it mainly at the spur of the moment and never planned on doing so.
* EnemyMine: She hates God Kubera, but works with him [[spoiler:to resurrect Ananta]].
* EqualOpportunityEvil: Sagara doesn't care about clan loyalties or whatever. To get what she wants, she was willing to enlist help from a god, Gandharva suras, an Asura rakshasa, and even a few Garudas, her clan's most notorious foe. She even accepted the interference of a human (Asha) as long as it was beneficial to her plan.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: She utterly hated (and still hates) the Gandharva clan for refusing to help Ananta (since even if they didn't care personally, they should realize that losing Ananta would be a blow to the sura race as a whole). Still, a close look at flashbacks indicate that when the Taraka clan attacked the Gandharva clan, Sagara put her money where her mouth is and [[EnemyMine came to defend them]].
* EverythingButTheGirl: The guy, actually. Sagara got the throne she had wanted for such a long time, but was never able to win his heart.
* {{Foil}}: To Brilith, who was likewise thrust into a leadership role far beyond her abilities, but who, unlike her, has managed to become a beloved leader thanks to Agni. Needless to say, this ''infuriates'' Sagara.
* GenderBender: While all Nastika can change gender at will, Sagara is notable for doing it so frequently. This is because she, like most sura, is stronger in her male form. However, she personally prefers her female form.
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: She's generally spiteful, jealous, and willing to cause large amounts of suffering to those around her to attain her goals... though as she points out, she's NotSoDifferent from Gandharva.
* HeartbrokenBadass: Why else would she be so hellbent on bringing Ananta back? After his death, the notoriously power-hungry Sagara managed to become a king's lover and then king herself. If he returns, she'll lose her throne, but that doesn't seem to bother her at all. Ananta's death affected her so greatly that she simply refuses to accept an universe without him.
** On an earlier note, she had shades of this even when he was alive. [[ObliviousToLove He]] never noticed (or pretended not to notice) her feelings for him, and congratulated her for every new lover. Apparently, this greatly saddened her.
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler:A surprisingly unlucky example given that she successfully killed Brilith, Leez and Teo only for them to be brought back to life in separate ways.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: She condemns both Gandharva and Agni for being willing to neglect their responsibilities and sacrifice others in order to protect the people they care about. [[spoiler:Sagara herself is endangering ''an entire planet'' to try and revive Ananta. And while she mocks Gandharva for vainly hoping his daughter is still alive, it's made completely clear that she has no actual chance of reviving a sentient, sane Ananta the way she believes she can.]]
* InadequateInheritor: From the perspective of most of the Ananta clan, she's this. We don't know ''exactly'' why, but, save for Vasuki, not a single Ananta nastika backs her reign. There are many possible candidates for this:
** She's a bad king. But how exactly is never stated, and this shouldn't quite bother most of them that much, as Gandharva also sucked as a king and those that thought so simply left the clan. The whole Ananta thing is madness, yeah, but the suras aren't exactly known for being wise.
** She broke the traditional succession and usurped the throne. That makes sense at first... until one remembers that the, huh, "rightful" king actually wants her to have the throne. And it's not exactly the first time the Ananta clan went through an unconventional route to fill vacant leadership: after Ananta died, Vasuki should have succeeded him, but Manasvin did so, as he's stronger in male form than Vasuki is in female form. However, Vasuki only refused to adopt male form because he wanted Manasvin to rule to benefit Sagara especifically. No one seems to have had a problem with that, though.
** [[MightMakesRight She's weak]]. The strongest contender, given the way the sura world works. As stated above, sura society is driven by power. Kings like Gandharva, who was a crazy psycho and a brutal tyrant at his peak, are admired as rulers by several suras - including Sagara herself - not for their leadership, but for their power. And, as stated by a few characters, Sagara is weak for a nastika. The Ananta clan may see her as this because, as a king weaker than the others, she makes the clan seem weak as a whole. That and pride, too: having a weaker being above you in any sort of hierarchy must not sit well with any sura, even more so with the notoriously prideful nastikas.
* ItsAllMyFault: After the attack on Atera, she admits being at fault for their failure, losing her cool and trying to kill Brilith, even when Riagara wants to blame others.
* {{Jerkass}}: She is power-hungry, vain, ruthless and cruel. This is actually why Manasvin loved her; unlike other people, she was actually honest with herself, rather than hiding under claims of good intentions.
* JerkassHasAPoint: When she says that she's NotSoDifferent from Gandharva, she has a point; both of them are terrible leaders who are sacrificing the interests of their entire clan for incredibly selfish reasons, [[spoiler:as well as being in denial when it comes to seeing their loved ones again, [[{{Irony}} although she probably didn't realize that.]] ]]
** Also, she condemns Agni for killing the God of Death purely to bring a mortal he loved back to life. While the story is romantic and all, when you think about it, she has a point; it was a pretty selfish thing to do.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's AMotherToHerMen. Also, she genuinely loved Manasvin and was upset when he told her to leave him and be with Vasuki. She's also hinted to have loved Ananta, regardless of his status as king.
* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: After two seasons of everything goin her way, the end of season two got Sagara hit with this, ''hard'': the goal she was so desperate to accomplish got completely thwarted right in front of her eyes, by a human no less, and mere minutes before she could claim success. No wonder she's so pissed when first seen in season three.
* MakeThemRot: Her "Fatal Touch" transcendental makes the target rot. She uses it to try to kill [[spoiler:Brilith]].
* TheMenFirst: Has this attitude towards the Rakshasa following her.
* MoralityPet: Vasuki is other nastika she currently cares about. However, he's in Taksaka's nest, which is quite possibly the safest place in the universe. So, she endangers the sura back in the sura realm anyway.
* MoralMyopia: Her attacking human city after human city it's all fine and good, but Rindhallow deserves to be razed for being "drenched in the blood of [her] people".
* NeverASelfMadeWoman: There's an element of this in her kingship, and she seems aware of this, too. She's only king because Vasuki backs her (even if he's currently in his female form, the male one is his "default" one, as seen in aa flashback: when playing rock-paper-scissors with Ananta, Vasuki's a guy). Previously, all the power she had stemmed from the fact that she made herself the direct subordinate of two kings - both male. It's not exactly the "woman" thing that keeps her from achieving power on her own, but rather the fact that she's weak, and suras refuse follow that.
* NighInvulnerability: Her "King of Toxic Mist" unique transcendental gives her the ''Made of Air'' variety.
* NotSoAboveItAll: She generally presents herself as calm and collected, but when facing Brilith she utterly flips her shit.
* NotSoDifferent: Points out to him she and Gandharva are like this: both hypocritical kings willing to sacrifice their clans for their own selfish goals. It goes even deeper than that, not that she noticed it: they are both very delusional about achieving said goals and refuse to accept it may be impossible even when faced with blatant warnings and evidence.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Looks like a teenager, but has lived for eons.
* OutlivingOnesOffspring: She's had a very large amount of children, enough to not remember all of them, and many have probably already died.
** [[spoiler: It also turns out the bomb Lorraine set off in her car killed the Rakshasas and Upanis who followed her when it went off, including Riagara and Pingara, who were hinted to be her children. Sagara survives the blast and starts calling out to Riagara, asking what happened- only to find a crater and ripped corpses buried in rubble. Her eyes turn [[RedEyesTakeWarning completely red from rage,]] implying that she is going to go on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge.]]
* PintsizedPowerhouse: Her female form is 153 cm; even her male form is only 173 cm. She's perhaps the shortest character in the main cast. Also a nastika.
* PleaseDontLeaveMe: [[spoiler:A flashback has her saying something like this to Ananta, when she is trying to persuade him not to do a HeroicSacrifice. It's even sadder as you see everything from her point of view, and the text gets bigger as she starts screaming, and becomes much smaller immediately after, as if she started sobbing.]]
* ProudBeauty: Is very aware of how beautiful she is, thank you very much.
* ReallyGetsAround: Apparently, she had a lot of lovers and enough children that she can't remember all of them. However, considering her [[TimeAbyss age]], this is likely the case for many Nastika.
* SeeksAnothersResurrection: [[spoiler:To be more precise, she seeks to revive Ananta, even when Agni [[CameBackWrong warns her against it]].]]
* SmugSnake: She's really not as clever as she thinks she is, and most of the rest of the Ananta Nastika consider her a disaster of a King. Despite this flaw, she appears capable of learning from her mistakes and even respecting her opponents to a point, as is evident in her approach with the attack on Kalibloom in contrast to the one on Atera.
* SubordinateExcuse: When Ananta was alive, she was his direct subordinate.
* SuicidalOverconfidence: During the battle at Aeroplateu and Rindhallow, she allows Asha to walk right into her base and doesn't bother with even trying to stop her. At the time, she had almost managed to achieve her goals, it was only a question of time, and what a simple human could do to stop her? As it turns out, a lot.
* UndyingLoyalty: An interesting case. Most Anantas refuse to follow her lead, but those that do are completely devoted to her. The more we learn about the Rakshasas following her, however, the more complicated this becomes: while they are loyal to her, only [[spoiler:Riagara and Cloche]] are absolutely so, and even the former is getting doubts as of season three. It cannot be denied that she has this towards Ananta.
* TheUsurper: A weird variant of it in that the main claimant to the throne - that it, the strongest sura left after the previous king - actually supports her. In fact, having said surport is the sole thing that's keeping the crown on her head. However, most of the Ananta clan sees her as such, and thus refuses to follow her leadership. Sagara herself doesn't seem to bother with them that much, and only keeps the title because it's how she was able to forge the alliance with other suras in order to achieve her goals.
* VainSorceress: She loves her appearance so much that she actually spares a human because he calls her beautiful, and prefers to stay in her female form even though it is weaker than her male form.
** Although possible that she did so in order to stay close to the center of power in her clan, as the sura go by AsskickingEqualsAuthority and the three strongest Nastika were all male, flashbacks indicate [[spoiler:she might have truly loved their first king, Ananta, rather than simply desiring a position of power.]] She remains in female form in the human realm, where it would not be necessary if she only used it for seduction.
* VillainousUnderdog: While she is the most obvious opponent of humanity, among the non-human characters she is often outclassed, and in general has a relatively small destructive power, with even some of her subordinates surpassing her in strength. [[spoiler:At least until she regains her sealed transcendentals in season 2.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Dark blue, fitting her color palette.

An Rakshasa on loan to the Ananta Clan to cement their alliance. His (or her; he has no actual gender) trollish nature and self-resurrection ability mean the others let him get killed far more than he would like.
----
* AnAdventurerIsYou: He's the Tank, of course; unusual for a tank, his human form is slender and unassuming, and his Sura form is far smaller than most, but he makes up for it with regeneration that makes him almost impossible to kill and transcendentals to redirect magical attacks to himself.
* AmbiguousGender: His appearance is entirely androgynous, which makes sense when you find out that he actually has NoBiologicalSex.
* AutoRevive: He comes back to life automatically when killed -- up to ''twelve times a day''.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: He comes across as a complete goofball, if a clever one. [[spoiler:Then he forces Cloche to retreat with him by knocking out Clophe, taking him as a hostage, and threatening to kill him. When he decides how things should go, he does ''not'' screw around.]]
%%* ButtMonkey
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Nobody in the Sura alliance likes him, since he spends all his time needling them.
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: Invoked; his two main powers are the ability to regenerate from almost anything (including, up to twelve time a day, death) and the ability to redirect attacks to himself. Needless to say, he gets blown up a lot while tanking for everyone else, and is frequently shown dying instantly (sometimes multiple times) to underline how powerful a particular attack is.
* HealingFactor: In addition to his ridiculous regeneration, Hura's unique transcendental allows him to come back from the dead up to twelve times in rapid succession, making him almost impossible to kill.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: He has four arms, although he normally keeps two of them concealed under his cloak.
* NoBiologicalSex: Although others use male pronouns for him, he (like half of the members of the Asura clan) is physically sexless; it's unclear whether he identifies as male or whether members of other clans refer to him as that purely for convenience.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Although he seems like a goofball and a layabout, his effectiveness at needling the others make it clear that he's smarter than he lets on.
* {{Troll}}: Hura delights in needling the people around him; this actually suits his abilities well, in that he's mostly ineffectual offensively but is incredibly good at trolling opponents into wasting their time attacking his nearly-invulnerable regenerating body.

[[folder:Gandharva]]
!!Gandharva
!!!Nastika, Source Attribute: Resurrection
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gandharva_113.jpg]]

First and current king of the clan. He is one of the major players in the current plot.
----
* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Downplayed. His extreme mood swings made him not very well-regarded by many Gandharva nastikas, who chose to leave the clan rather than endure his reign.
* AccompliceByInaction: Manasvin and Sagara consider him - and, by extention, the whole Gandharva clan - to be this regarding Ananta's death.
* TheAlcoholic: Has some shades of this. Some of Maruna's flashbacks from when he was living with the Gandharva clan show him with a bottle in his hand at several moments; not so much in the present storyline, when he [[DrowningMySorrows mostly drinks as a way to cope]]. While he was depressed at the time, in Maruna's flashbacks he seemed quite joyful, which implies this trope.
* AntiVillain: He just wants to find his daughter. Sagara mocks this attitude given the hypocrisy evident in it. See NobleDemon.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Maruna has broken Gandharva's promises for him (Season 1), accidentally ruined his life on more than one occasion (Season 2), and made it clear how pathetic he thinks Gandharva's become (Season 3). Gandharva's certainly resented him for this at various points, but he also won't hesitate to look out for him nevertheless. (Maruna likewise returns the sentiment.)
* BadassDecay: In-universe, Gandharva suffered from a heavy case of this - and it's getting worse, as in season three he's nowhere near as powerful as he was in season two due to taking sura form in the human realm seven years before.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: The basis of his attachment to Agni. Considering Gandharva's past (and present...), Agni treats him far better than he deserves and he knows it.
* BerserkerTears: This is actually one of his abilities. His unique transcendental "Frozen Tears" can only be used when he is crying.
* BeyondTheImpossible: He took his sura form in the human realm, something that should've been impossible for a nastika after the Cataclysm. [[spoiler:It left him severely weakened; so much so, in fact, that seven years later he's yet to fully recover, and likely neve will.]]
* BirdsOfAFeather: The parallels between his situation with Shakuntala and [[spoiler:Teo's situation with her parents]] are what initially make him start sympathizing with her.
* {{Bishounen}}: His human guise has a slight, delicate appearance. He's perfectly happy to take advantage of this.
* BloodKnight: He rather enjoys combat against stronger gods, and his attitude toward such fights is akin to a cat playing with its prey. In the past, a request for assistance in a war to save Ananta from the gods actually piqued his interest before Makara and Menaka intervened with their respective suggestions.
* BreakThemByTalking: While it's suggested there was some external influence forcibly making him hurt, [[spoiler:Taraka!Shakuntala does this to Gandharva, pointing out that no matter what he does, everybody hates him and/or looks down on him and that he will never be accepted by them.]]
* ButtMonkey: Not on Leez's level, but very much so. Let's just say that the present story line is not kind to Gandharva and leave it at that.
* CantKillYouStillNeedYou: Why Agni would rather redeem him than kill him, in spite of all the atrocities he's committed: [[spoiler:according to Visnu's insight, he's needed for the best possible future. In every other, even the second-best, Kali wins.]]
* CassandraTruth: [[spoiler:When a Taraka in Shakuntala's form shows up, everyone realizes that Shakuntala is officially dead, and this is effectively a parasite in her corpse. Of course, Gandharva isn't convinced and insists he can still feel ''something''... and it turns out he may have been completely right, as Shakuntala's consciousness wasn't quite as gone as people assumed.]]
* CryCute: Despite all the terrible things he has done, it's hard not to pity him when he cries for his daughter.
* DeathSeeker: After his HeelRealization, he's pretty much just waiting for someone to kill him as he knows he deserves, and grows increasingly disappointed that Agni ''won't''.
* DeconstructedCharacterArchetype:
** Of the NobleDemon. Most of his attempts to PetTheDog backfire on him in some way--see the section under that trope for more details.
** Then, of TheAtoner. It's what he desperately wants to be, but among other obstacles, it turns out that a HeelFaceTurn brought by crossing the DespairEventHorizon means that [[spoiler:he regresses as soon as he's given hope again]] and he's at his best when, unfortunately, he's kept depressed because at least then he's obedient and less likely to go and screw something up.
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:After Sagara kills Teo, making him realize how he caused the death of countless innocents for a void hope.]]
* TheDitherer: Often finds himself hesitant when forced to make difficult choices. This backfired badly on him in the past when his hesitation [[spoiler:apparently led to Menaka's death]] as well as in the present day, when his failure to choose one side or another in time [[spoiler:got Teo killed, at least temporarily]].
* DotingParent: As far as parents went among the sura, he in particular had a reputation for being this.
* DrillSergeantNasty: Averted. Maruna initially saw him as one, because he made him endure harsh training to develop, but later, when faced with the brutality of Samphati's training, he actually realized that Gandharva was going quite easy on him.
* TheDreaded: Was this before meeting Menaka, when he was still at full power. They say that even the strongest among the nastika were afraid of him. Also lampshaded by Cloche when Sagara was about to press his BerserkButton.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Even he--a former psychopath with a direct kill count in the ''trillions''--thinks Kali is batshit insane and deserves to be sealed away for constantly trying to destroy the universe.
* EyepatchOfPower: He wears an eyepatch in his human guise to conceal his missing eye, which he tears out and deliberately does not restore as it's the one sura trait he can't change when in human form (and therefore it'll set off sura radars).
* FatalFlaw: Emotional weakness. He knows that he's done absolutely horrible things (and that he should feel bad, even if he admittedly doesn't), which for a sura is a ''remarkable'' understanding of human morality. The issue is that this does nothing to help him make the right decision when he needs to; he always inevitably caves to insecurities and selfish desires. This pushes people away from him, which in turn keeps him at an emotional low, and thus the cycle repeats...
* GoingNative: [[spoiler:He's more depressed than anything, but honestly, compared to the rest of the series, the seven years he spent pretending to be a Half are probably the happiest he's been in the present.]]
* HandicappedBadass: As a nastika in the human realm, he cannot take sura form, something that severely diminishes his power. [[spoiler:Even when he manages to take sura form, it costs him gravely.]] Still, he's powerful in his own right and can tank quite a few hits.
* HappilyMarried: He and Menaka were this.
* HealingFactor: His is extremely powerful and why he's basically been unkillable until now. He's not the strongest being offensively, but you can make a good case for defensively.
* HeelFaceDoorSlam: [[spoiler:A self-inflicted one given that he thinks himself unworthy of being Agni's ally given all the terrible things he's done. It's more psychological than anything given that his following actions are pretty standard for a HeelFaceTurn and his thoughts on the matter suggest that he might have become TheAtoner.]]
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: ''Gods.'' There's a reason Agni is at the end of his rope with him by Season 3. Post-HeelFaceTurn, Gandharva usually means well, but when he has attachments to all sides, there's no telling whom he'll be supporting at any given moment. [[spoiler:Now that he's (probably) fully convinced that Shakuntala is dead, though, Agni is hopeful that his allegiance is firmer now.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: Several signs through the whole story imply that it is going to happen eventually. [[spoiler:It seems this finally happened after the Frozen Tears arc.]]
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler:While there had been moments where he clearly felt uncomfortable, Teo's death and Maruna's slaughter of the humans who confront him after his conversation with Agni make him realize just how horrible his actions have been until that point.]]
* AnIcePerson: He prefers to use ice in battle.
* InterspeciesFriendship: Subverted. He's fond of "Miss Riche" but [[spoiler:their reunion comes with the revelation that he's a nastika, not a Half as he pretended to be, and was likely involved in the attacks on the cities. Leez makes it immediately clear that she despises him for this]].
* IntriguedByHumanity: Although SmugSuper, Gandharva seems a tad fascinated by human culture. He's quick to like humans who are nice to him, has Leez explain curry mushrooms to him, is interested in buying gloves for Maruna (even though sura typically dislike wearing human clothes), and when Teo offers to sponsor the two of them during their Half masquerade, he tells Maruna it'll be a good chance to experience city life (that doesn't end in blowing said city up).
* KickedUpstairs: Confessed to Visnu in a flashback that he never had any desire to be king, and would feel happier otherwise.
* KillTheOnesYouLove: [[spoiler:It's unclear as to how convinced he was that the Taraka!Shakuntala was really her, but regardless, he ends up stabbing her for Agni's sake.]]
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: Long, loose hair, and he's just about as pretty as his wife.
* TheLostLenore: Menaka is this to him. [[spoiler:If his ShipTease with Teo go anywhere, he may grow out of it.]]
* LoveMakesYouEvil and [[LoveMakesYouCrazy Crazy]]: Just see what he can do for Menaka, Shakuntala or [[spoiler:Teo]].
* LoveRedeems: Before meeting his wife, he was cruel and even feared by other Nastika due his power and [[BloodKnight behaviour]].
** [[spoiler:Getting to know Teo makes him consider if he can really justify what he's done.]]
* MakingASplash: The king of a clan whose element is water. His source element would likely be better for healing, possibly explaining why his attacks are water based.
* MasterOfDisguise: Of sorts. He's pretty much the only sura who takes full advantage of his shapeshifting abilities and therefore has taken on more appearances than any other character.[[note]]His normal appearance, his human guise when infiltrating cities, three variations of his child appearance so that he's not recognized as Kalibloom's assailant, and a blue version of his adult appearance so far.[[/note]]
* TheMentor: A combination of this and ParentalSubstitute to Maruna.
* MoralMyopia: He just wants to find his daughter. Never mind the body count. [[spoiler:He later grows out of this]].
* TheMourningAfter: Has yet to remarry after Menaka's death. In fact, rather than find a new mate, he decided to focus on caring for and protecting their daughter instead.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone:[[spoiler:His reaction to the latter event and how what Maruna did pretty much applies to all the bad things he's done just to find Shakuntala, and implicitly even before then. It also leads to]]
* NobleDemon: He will pay his debt and keep his promises (as far as the situation allows). Sagara repeatedly mocks him for this attitude[[spoiler:, and events in the Frozen Tears arc deconstruct this trope in regards to Gandharva]].
* NotEvilJustMisunderstood: Downplayed, since everyone has good reason to doubt Gandharva, given his long history of actually being as terrible as everyone thinks he still is. Nevertheless, whenever he tries to help out with good (or at least non-terrible) intentions, people believe he's secretly plotting against them. They also take his actions in the latter half of Season 2 as proof he hasn't changed one bit, unaware that his motivations by then were completely different.
* NotHelpingYourCase: In season three, [[spoiler:he has allowed himself to be captured by Agni and Chandra in Kalibloom and seeks to be their ally. However, at the time Brilith had already recovered her memories, and remembered of all the times he killed her without Agni's knowledge. He's desperate to gain the fire god's approval, which means getting Brilith's. When she demands he repent from his past slaughters of human beings, he... absolutely refuses to do so and remains firm on his position that humans are below him.]] [[spoiler:And that's talking to someone who remembers when nastikas helped the gods extinguish the human race once.]] Not your best move, Gandharva.
* ObliviousToLove: He's completely oblivious to Teo's crush.
* OlderThanTheyLook: He's a nastika, which means he's as old as the fucking universe itself, but he looks like the could be in his twenties. Later forms look even younger.
* OverprotectiveDad: He didn't even try to hide his hostility when Shakuntala expressed her fondness for Maruna. However, the trope is played more seriously otherwise. Given that his wife was killed and Shakuntala had previously been kidnapped, his attitude was rather justified, even if said daughter was all too well aware of how much she burdened him as a result.
* PapaWolf: He'd do absolutely anything to ensure Shakuntala's safety, to the extent of being a KnightTemplarParent. [[spoiler:It's shown in full effect in Season 3, where despite recognizing the Taraka!Shakuntala as a fake, he still chooses to protect her and turns against Agni.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: He seems to be a bit of one towards Maruna, who shows more concern about Gandharva being missing for a few days than his own father's coma.
* PetTheDog: He is willing to spare certain humans in targeted areas if they amuse him and aid Halfs being transported by Half hunters (although this was also in part out of pragmatism).
** As with many other things, this is also deconstructed:
*** He spared Leez due to finding her amusing, and in doing so unknowingly allowed his quarry to escape, although Maruna is more thorough in his approach.
*** When he attempts to do the same with [[spoiler:Teo, she points out that she has no desire to be spared if the rest of Kalibloom is slaughtered, finding such behavior cowardly. This, and Sagara's own comments about the situation force Gandharva to confront the fact that, in the end, engaging in this trope does not make him the slightest bit innocent of his role in the massacre of countless humans.]]
*** Brilith mocks him for this, commenting on how [[spoiler:the one time where he spared her, due to her being Agni's lover, he must've felt gracious... without realizing that he'd already killed her in several other lives]].
* {{Pride}}: Oh so very much. Fittingly for a nastika - and a king - Gandharva considers himself to be completely above petty beings like humans. [[spoiler:So much so that he refuses to ask for Brilith's forgiveness when he needs it the most.]]
* PsychopathicManchild: In the past. Menaka recognized that he didn't kill because he was pure evil; he was too immature to fully understand the weight of his actions. [[spoiler:Brilith even compares him to a child pouring water into an anthill.]] Billions of years later, he's mostly dropped the psychopathic part [[LoveRedeems thanks to her influence]], though he's admittedly still a {{Manchild}} at times.
* RedOniBlueOni: Flashbacks show him as the wild Red to Makara's gloomy Blue.
* ReformedButRejected: [[spoiler:In Season 3, he's sincere about wanting to fight alongside Agni, but at this point, Agni's too wary of Gandharva's HeelFaceRevolvingDoor tendencies to take him at his word--to say nothing of Chandra or the humans, who don't want to give him a chance, period. It's not entirely unjustified, given that Gandharva ''does'' then pull a FaceHeelTurn, though only briefly.]]
* ThenLetMeBeEvil: He's constantly reminded that he's a horrible person and isn't as reformed as he thinks he is, and everyone's just waiting for him to prove them right. [[spoiler:And he does... but when made to choose between them and his daughter (however obviously fake), it's fairly obvious what was a deciding factor.]] In the same vein, [[spoiler:he then pulls yet another HeelFaceTurn for Agni, the one person still willing to see any good in him]].
* ThinkNothingOfIt: [[spoiler:His response after Elwin unknowingly thanks him for keeping her company before she returned to Kalibloom.]]
* TookALevelInKindness: Seems so, as he's not longer the psychotic slaughterer the once was, but isn't exactly a saint, either. In season three he decides to side firmly with humanity.
** Except that maybe not. [[spoiler:As Brilith points out, his change of heart only came after he lost most of his powers and grew severely weakened. She states that his choice to help humankind is meaningless if it's based simply on his inability to kill them in the same scale as before.]]
* TragicBromance: See Agni's entry.
* TragicVillain: Unlike Sagara, he's not malicious, and unlike Maruna or numerous other antagonists, he's not even convinced of his righteousness. He knows he's in the wrong and hates it (even if his guilt is less for his victims and more that he's not the person his loved ones thought he could become). Unfortunately, his FatalFlaw keeps him in a vicious cycle of this.
* TheUnapologetic: Despite his change of heart in season three, he remains this. When Brilith demands he repents [[OmnicidalManiac his pasts exploits]], he utterly refuses to do so. [[PunyEarthlings Humans are just ants, after all]].
* WorthyOpponent: With Agni. It gets into some really convoluted and complex [[FriendlyEnemy frenemy]] territory centuries ago, and just keeps getting more... solid. It's arguable that Gandharva currently feels closer to Agni than he does any other Nastika or Astika, despite technically being on the "wrong" side to keep their relationship as cordial as he might like to.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: He has bright green hair. [[spoiler:It's blue in his sura form, and later switches to blue in his human form as well]].

[[folder:Menaka]]
!!Menaka
!!!Nastika, Source Attribute: Wind
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5024e976ae317a5842809423014aa869.png]]

Shakuntala's mother and Gandharva's late wife. She was killed long before the story began.
----
* ActualPacifist: Convinced Gandharva to not get involved with matters that didn't concern their clan. It's worth noting, though, that she was by no means weak (as, according to the creator, was a common false assumption among fans)--she was one of the strongest nastika of the clan.
* AllLovingHero: She wished for mercy for Gandharva, who was a raging PsychopathicManchild at the time, while also despairing over all the humans he was slaughtering and that Visnu accepted them as an acceptable price for the universe as a whole.
* BirdsOfAFeather: [[spoiler:She, an outlier among nastika, was friends with Agni, an outlier among gods.]]
* TheChosenOne: Zigzagged. ''She'' was actually supposed to inherit the name of Gandharva, but despite that not going as planned, Visnu rolled with it and saw that she could be the first nastika to achieve enlightenment and be the one to defeat Kali. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, Kali managed to deceive her, ensuring her death, and thus the role of becoming Kali's bane fell onto Gandharva, whose chances are far less than Menaka's were due to being nowhere ''near'' enlightenment.]]
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Well, as much as a nastika can be. She was genuinely troubled by Gandharva's senseless slaughter of humans.
* HappilyMarried: She and Gandharva were this.
* HiddenDepths: She's gentle and maybe too pacifistic for her own good, yes, but she was also the nastika closest to enlightment and the one originally set to kill Kali (not to mention one of the strongest members of her clan). She also seemed aware of far more things than her husband: [[spoiler:after all, she knew that Visnu secretly despised Gandharva, and knew the reason for it.]]
* KarmaHoudini: Not her, but Gandharva. Her deal with Visnu [[spoiler:(actually Kali)]] was to ensure that he ends up as this, with her bearing the sin of this crimes instead.
* TheLostLenore: Gandharva has yet to remarry since her passing, and at some points thinks back on her.
* MessianicArchetype: [[spoiler:As part of her deal with Kali, her soul bore the weight of Gandharva's sins (therefore being purged with her death), which was her way of saving him from Paradisial Flare.]]
* MoralityChain: To Gandharva; he was extremely vicious before meeting her. It's eventually revealed that she actually invoked this, albeit, with the intent of being his MoralityPet, believing Gandharva could change and essentially volunteering herself for the task. The reality though is that given his actions after her passing, she fell into this trope instead.
* PacifismBackfire: Unfortunately, her influence was [[NiceJobBreakingItHero one of the first steps in what would lead to her clan's downfall]].
** The whole thing gets verbally deconstructed by Manasvin during a flashback to the incident, namely [[spoiler:the Gandharva clan's refusal to aid in the rescue of Ananta, leading to the latter's death]], with him commenting on how such behavior is nothing more than undeserved self-righteousness during times when [[ViolenceReallyIsTheAnswer action might actually be needed for the sake of others in need of help]].
* PosthumousCharacter: Apparently, she was killed by the gods a few centuries before the present time.
* RapunzelHair: Well, she's a nastika.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Her daughter Shakuntala inherited most of her looks.
* UnwittingPawn: To save Gandharva from one day being killed by Paradisial Flare, she struck a deal with Visnu, only to discover later that [[spoiler:it was actually Kali in disguise, therefore preventing the initial best possible future from occurring]]. On a much larger scale, her deal with [[spoiler:Kali]] placed the duty of destroying [[spoiler:her]] in Gandharva's back, which seems rather unlikely - and given said person's goal of destroying the universe...
* WhatDoesSheSeeInHim: When someone expresses shock that she married Gandharva of all people, even Menaka admits she's not quite sure how she ended up falling in love.

[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1df02969595267c94691317c99e6a24b.png]]

Gandharva's daughter, known for looking and acting much like her mother. Most sura assume she is dead; Gandharva has practically sold himself into slavery on the slim chance that she's not.
----
* AchillesHeel: She was Gandharva's, hence why the gods once tried to take her hostage.
* ActualPacifist: She took after her mother in this regard, though unlike her, Shakutala had no real combat ability in any case. [[spoiler:When Agni uses Paradisial Flare against her, it fails, confirming that from start to finish, she never took a single life.]]
* AllLovingHero: Like her mother. Her father, the rest of the clan, humans [[spoiler:like Siera when she possesses him]]--she loves everyone deeply.
* CameBackWrong: [[spoiler: Assuming that the Chaos sura possessing Siera really did assimilate her being into the clan's network.]]
* DaddysGirl: She was Gandharva's little princess and she adored him just as much as he did her.
* TheGadfly: Often teased Maruna over his slow development.
* HiddenHeartOfGold: [[spoiler:Using the last bit of control she has, she tries to convince Gandharva that she's a fake so that he'll finally give up and kill her, and when he does, she keeps it up so that he can believe she already died and moved on to Paradise.]]
* IllGirl: She spent an abnormally short amount of time in each growth stage, which made her very weak. The poisonous air in the sura realm (and lack of an ocean) certainly didn't help.
* InnocentFlowerGirl: Often seen in flashbacks in flower fields, or making flower wreaths.
* IOweYouMyLife: Or rather, We Owe Agni My Life, So Please Don't Fight Him, Dad.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: She was the only thing that kept Gandharva from reverting to his old ways after Menaka's death, and in the present, the idea that she might be alive is all that's keeping him from crossing the DespairEventHorizon.
* MoralityChain: Maruna sees as one to her father while ruminating on the apparent hopelessness of Gandharva's quest to find her.
* MoralityPet: Takes on this role for Gandharva after Menaka's death.
* PrecociousCrush: PrintBonus material suggests that she had one on Agni, who saved her life as a child.
* TragicMonster: [[spoiler:Her ultimate fate, as she's taken over by a Taraka.]]
* UncertainDoom: While she's widely believed to be dead, it's unconfirmed precisely when or how she might have died.
** [[spoiler: It's later revealed that she has passed, likely having been eaten by a Chaos sura, as she seemingly reappears as part of that clan's neural network.]]

[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/3327f4327fad82ae98bc49aae1b6de4b.png]]

Second in command of the clan and Gandharva's right hand man.
----
%%* AntiquatedLinguistics
%%* YeOldeButcheredEnglish: Or some Korean equivalent.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Despite his appearance, he appears to have been loyal to his king and a source of good counsel. [[spoiler:Implied to not fit the bill from a human perspective. When Leez remembers all the despicable nastika she met during her seven years in the sura realm, what appears to be Makara's silhouette is one of the largest ones seen. Given that Brilith's tells Gandharva the two of them met while Leez was among the sura, this is very much a possibility.]]
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: His gloomy personality means, despite his loyalty and competence, few people actually like him. He defused a potential rebellion by reminding everyone that if they overthrew Gandharva, ''he'' would become king, a prospect they found unnerving enough to back down.
* HypercompetentSidekick: It's telling that after the Cataclysm, Makara was trusted to handle dealing with an unruly crowd of fellow clan members unhappy about the clan's situation. Manasvin and Sagara even go as far as state that Makara was king of his clan in all but name.
* NumberTwo: To Gandharva.
* InTheHood: Wears a hooded cloak, adding to his already somewhat dark and sinister appearance.
* RedOniBlueOni: Gloomy, serious Blue to Gandharva's moody and irresponsible Red.

[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/f3435eafff464774048cfaf7e7cf6b0a.png]]

First king of the clan. Father of Maruna, Yuta, and Kalavinka. Went into a coma after the Cataclysm.
----
* FisherKing: It's pretty much stated that the state of a king reflects on their clan. Garuda went into a coma after the Cataclysm, and the Garuda clan only weakened since then. During the seven year timeskip, the Tarakas attacked full-force, and the Garudas were one of the clans that bore the heaviest casualties, [[spoiler:so much so that they only have a single nastika in fighting shape, Akasha]]. What became of him is unknown.
* LargeAndInCharge: Pretty darn tall in human form and king of the Garuda clan to boot.
* NotSoDifferent: With Manasvin of all people. Let's see, long white hair? Check. Mask? Check. Powerful nastika? Check. King whose comatose state - or implied death in Manasvin's case - put his clan in a difficult situation? Check. Said clan decided to ally with a god to escape that predicament? Check. Had a lover far below him in the power scale? Also check. The main difference lies in their relationship with said lovers: Garuda had two children (that we know of) with Vinata, but also had a kid with Kali ''after'' getting together with the other nastika. Manasvin, on the other hand, loved the ambitious Sagara so much that he suggested she leave him for Vasuki when it seemed he would become king following Ananta's death. It should be noted, however, that flashbacks hint that Garuda wasn't exactly happy with Kali and may have joined her plans for some reason that's not lust (as it certainly wasn't love, as far as one can tell).
** Even their clans' attributes are contrasting: Earth for the Anantas, Sky for the Garudas.
* ParentalNeglect: He ignored Yuta, and Maruna doesn't seem to miss him that much.

[[folder:Maruna]]
!!Maruna
!!!Rakshasa, Hereditary Attributes: Light + Fire
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maruna_211.jpg]]

Garuda's eldest (living) son. His father sent him to the Gandharva clan to be raised by by their king, as they were friends.
----
* AintTooProudToBeg: For all his haughty behavior, he doesn't hesitate to beg for Gandharva to save Samphati.
* AloofAlly: To God Kubera and the Ananta clan. Especially with the latter, since he feeds on the lesser sura to replenish his vigor. The Ananta rakshasas despise him for it; one of them even comments once that it would be the best for them if he dies, since they'll go back to being enemies after everything is over.
* AloofBigBrother: To Yuta. It's not that Maruna doesn't care for him, it's just that his way of showing it is... sura-like.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: He really cannot tolerate (or understand) Gandharva's behaviour most of the time, but he's as protective of him as he is towards his other loved ones, and as much as he looks down on Gandharva's [[spoiler:false life as a Half]], he still goes out of his way to help Gandharva maintain the masquerade.
* BerserkButton: Don't insult Gandharva. He's broken jaws and then some for calling Gandharva's eye stupid.
* BigBrotherInstinct: He went through TrainingFromHell so he could retrieve his younger siblings safety. That doesn't mean he's unwilling to harm them if that's what it takes to bring them back to the sura realm.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Very, very much on display. From seeing nothing wrong with destroying an entire human-held planet (because they're only human, duh), attempting to decimate another, eating Sura allies (non-mission-critical ones) when he needs a boost, going out of his way for others he finds enjoyable to be around, having a rigid honour system he sticks to... Maruna displays every Sura trait Yuta has ever described.
* CantKillYouStillNeedYou: His dynamic with Kasak in a nutshell: as the half-dragon may have information regarding Kalavinka, he cannot bring himself to kill him, despite how much of a nuisance Kasak becomes - which, as Samphati points out, is a mistake from their plan's point of view.
* ChildhoodFriends: Since he grew up with the Gandharva clan, he and Shakuntala became this, much to [[OverprotectiveDad Gandharva's]] chagrin.
* TheComicallySerious: Him with Kaz's cat is a sight to behold. Especially when, after Maruna's dramatic monologue about survival of the fittest, it just... pees next to him. Because it's a cat.
* ConflictingLoyalty: As Gandharva points out, this is why Maruna can't be AFriendInNeed for him. If forced to choose between him and Kubera (or rather, his siblings), Gandharva knows Maruna won't choose him.
* DealWithTheDevil: [[spoiler:Despite Gandharva's best attempts to dissuade him as no good can come out of using Kali's item, Maruna's determined to use the Pledge Token to reach fifth stage and save his clan.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He's not evil per se, merely antagonistic, but he loves his younger siblings dearly and clearly worries about Gandharva.
* EveryoneHasStandards: He's visibly enraged by slavers and considers them to be filth.
* EnemyMine: He's only working with Sagara as part of a deal to find his siblings. Otherwise, they're [=enemies/prey=]. Actually, he treats the lower-level Ananta suras as prey even as he works with them.
* FantasticRacism: He looks down on humans, but views Halfs like sura.
* {{Foil}}: To Gandharva. Where Gandarva appears relatively gentle but is heavily flawed, is intrigued by humanity, wants nothing to do with his clan by Season 3, and is severely depressed, Maruna is antagonistic but surprisingly noble, looks down on humans, is fiercely loyal to his people no matter the personal cost, and can't understand Gandharva's lack of motivation.
* AFriendInNeed: When Gandharva's on the brink of a DespairEventHorizon, Maruna tries to bring him back by assuring he's still there for him. Unfortunately, it doesn't stick as Maruna has no idea why Gandharva's acting this way, and because circumstances may turn them into enemies.
* ImpliedDeathThreat: When he demands to know why [[spoiler:Gandharva's in Kalibloom]]:
--->'''Maruna:''' Answer me quickly, Cloche. I'm hungry.
** As he tells a captive Elwin, he dislikes killing Halfs of allied clans... but that if it comes down to it, he's willing to go against his morals for the sake of a greater good.
* KnownOnlyByTheirNickname: "Maruna" isn't his real name.
* NobleDemon: As long as he's dealing with Halfs or other Sura, at least. He went out of his way to keep Kasak's daughter safe while fighting him (even when ''Kasak'' didn't seem to care), and tried to treat Elwin well despite holding her as a hostage.
** Notably, he doesn't kill for no reason. He derives no pleasure from the act of killing and only does so for food or some nebulous purpose.
* NotSoAboveItAll: He hates anything to do with humans, but can't help but be intrigued by the tablet that allows Shess to talk... and on the childish end of this trope, he huffs and denies said interest when Shess reminds him that he's too proud to use human devices.
* NotSoDifferent: As Maruna acknowledges, he's ultimately in no position to judge Gandharva for losing sight of reason when it comes to family, given what he's willing to do for his own.
* NotSoStoic: He drops his cold attitude in front of his siblings and (to a lesser extent) Gandharva.
* PetTheDog: He saved Elwin from becoming Upani food even after the sura had gotten what they wanted by catching her.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives a few of these to Gandharva in Season 3, disappointed by Gandharva's implicit decision to abandon his clan.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: He's somewhere over 1000.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Red (the more emotional of the two, not that this is hard in this case) to Samphati's (completely uncaring) Blue.
* TheStoic: He's very reserved, though as Gandharva notes, he does [[NotSoStoic have a playful side]]. The more we see of Maruna, the easier it becomes to see that this is not the whole truth about him; season three in special does an spetacular job in making him show emotion.
* UndyingLoyalty: Towards his clan.

[[folder:Samphati]]
!!Samphati
!!!Rakshasa, Hereditary Attributes: Light + Darkness
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/samphati_3164.jpg]]

An emotionless 5th stage Rakshasa, who seeks revenge for her sister's death. Currently aiding the Ananta Clan to achieve her goal.
----

* BestServedCold: She waited ''300 years'' for her chance. [[spoiler:And it was denied her]].
* BrokenBird: Her sister's death absolutely destroyed her. Yes, she lost her emotions as a result of using the Pledge Token, but she had to decide to use first. And it's not like the effects of it are a surprise either - everyone knows that things connected to Kali are not good. Samphati pretty much gave up on herself after Jatayu died.
* TheBully: A weird, downplayed example of this towards the Ananta clan. She's surprisingly respectful towards Sagara, even bowing to her when they first meet - most of ''Sagara's clan members'' don't have this much respect for her, and Samphati comes from an enemy clan. On the other hand, she treats the Ananta rakshasas following Sagara like dirt, going out of her way to rub their uselessness and her power in their face, aware that, since she's a 5th stage rakshasa and necessary to the plan, they can't do anything to her. It's brief, but she did it for no reason other than she could. And it hit them. Hard.
* DealWithTheDevil: She used the Pledge Token, a God-Level Item created by [[MadGod Kali]], to facilitate her early development to 5th stage.
* EmotionlessGirl: Her abrupt development to 5th stage left her mostly emotionless.
* EmotionsVsStoicism: Her dynamic with Maruna presents an interesting case of this. Samphati's use of the Eye of Perishment made her emotions so numb that her own mother recognizes that she barely has any personality left. Maruna himself is not exactly open to expressing his feelings, either; however, when put together, both of them represent the two sides of this trope. Maruna is driven by his loyalty to his family: he refuses to kill Kasak because he could know about Kalavinka's whereabouts, despite the fact that the half-dragon is a ''major'' obstacle to their plans. Samphati, on the other hand, is cold, uncaring and unemotional. However, they also invert this: despite loving his siblings, Maruna puts his clan before them, and thus is willing to temporarily maim [[spoiler:Yuta]] if that's what it takes for him to go to the sura realm. Samphati, on the other hand, only lost her emotions because of a burning desire for revenge, and is willing to sacrifice the chance of her king ever waking up to get it - and she's fully aware of how bad is the situation of the clan ever since Garuda went comatose.
* FlowerInHerHair: Pink flowers with feathers. The feathers belonged to her sister.
* HumanoidAbomination: Her sura form is a gigantic WingedHumanoid. She's so big, Kasak looks like a small lizard on her forearm.
* IceQueen: Very much so, and not of the [[DefrostingIceQueen defrosting]] kind.
* ItsPersonal: Boy howdy, yes. She ''hates'' her sister's killer with a passion that not even the victim's own mother (Akasha) matches. It wouldn't be too farfetched to say that hate has driven her crazy - and, if she's not nuts yet, she's well on the path to be. As Akasha herself states, Samphati's hatred for the killer is the last thing holding the little pieces of personality she still has together.
* NervesOfSteel: Seems so at first; it's only when Kasak [[spoiler:opens the Crescent Gate that this is averted]].
* OhCrap: When [[spoiler:Kasak opens the Crescent Gate during their battle, Samphati is visibly scared.]]
* PerpetualFrowner: She hardly ever shows anything other than a bland face. Even when she smiles, it's not openly.
* TheQuietOne: Not very talkative. One flashback even has Maruna wondering about it, and trying (and failing) to break the ice.
* RedOniBlueOni: Her relationship with Maruna may be seen this way, with Samphati being the unemotional Blue to Maruna's (relatively more) caring Red.
* {{Revenge}}: Seeks to avenge her dead sister.
* RevengeBeforeReason: When her mother tries to talk her into finding the true culprit behind [[spoiler:her sister's]] death, she mindlessly repeats that it was [[spoiler:Yuta]]'s fault and no one else's.
* RevengeByProxy: She plans to kill [[spoiler:Leez to make Yuta suffer]].
* SanitySlippage: Shows signs of this, most notably when Akasha tries to discuss Jatayu's death with her; Samphati ''refuses'' to accept that [[spoiler:someone other than Yuta]] (most likely a nastika) might be involved in it, as it would make impossible for her to get the revenge she so desperately wants (or, one might even say, needs). There's more than a little indication of her having gone off the deep end in that scene.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Her sura form is a giant winged humanoid that's naked save for the chest.
* ATasteOfTheirOwnMedicine: What she inteds to inflict on [[spoiler:Yuta]]. He killed someone dear to her, she'll kill someone dear to him - that's right, poor [[spoiler:Leez]] got another target on her back.
* TrainingFromHell: Inflicts one on poor Maruna. He later thinks that, in comparison, training under Gandharva was like heaven.
* UncannyValleyGirl: She looks like a beautiful woman, but her mind is eerily off kilter, and she seems to barely think beyond her obsession with making [[spoiler:her sister's killer]] suffer.
* WingedHumanoid: Her sura form.

A Garuda Nastika who's currently the second strongest of her Clan. Samphati's mother.
----
* ActionMom: She's one of the strongest remaining Garuda nastika and Samphati's mother.
* FacialMarkings: Her eyes have vein-like markings around them.
* HairDecorations: Wears many golden decorations with red jewels.
* InTheHood: Wears a white cloak, covering her eyes.
* LastOfHisKind: Downplayed. In season three, [[spoiler:she's briefly seen when Maruna crosses the portal to the sura realm. Then, she reveals to him that during the seven year timeskip, the Garuda clan suffered heavy casualties at the hands of the attacking Taraka clan, and that she's the last Garuda nastika in fighting shape.]] It's not known exactly if she is the last [[spoiler:Garuda nastika]] or if the others are just unable to fight.
* MouthOfSauron: Of the Garuda clan as a whole, as she's the sole Garuda nastika seen in the present timeline.
* NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist[=/=]WellIntentionedExtremist: Weeeeell... Akasha blurs the line. She's desperate to find Yuta and Kalavinka, as one of them is - she hopes - the key to wake Garuda up from his comatose state. If simply bringing them to the sura realm doesn't work, however, she's perfectly willing to kill them - a plan most Garuda nastikas are not fine with. But, well, given the awful situation of the clan, can you really blame her for taking drastic measures to wake up its most powerful nastika? She's only thinking of helping her people. ''However'', Sagara implies that one of the reasons Akasha agreed to an alliance with her was to learn her "trick" to become king. So there's that. And Samphati's words in a flashback support this too. Given the mechanics of the Power of the Name, there is a chance Garuda will die if his name-holder kick the bucket - something that didn't bother Samphati ''at all'' when trying to kill one of the two possible candidates (and the only one whose location was known). So, yeah, until we see more of Akasha herself, it's hard to say.

* EatenAlive: Considering [[spoiler:Yuta's]] dining habits and that she's confirmed to have been eaten, this is likely how she died.
* OnlyFriend: She was likely Yuta's very first friend.
* PosthumousCharacter: She died long before the narrative picked up, but has a large impact on the storyline.

!!Kinnara Clan
!!!Clan Attribute: Wind
[[folder:The Kinnara Clan in General]]
* LittleBitBeastly: They take after horned/hooved animals.
* TeamSwitzerland: Once their alliance with the Vritra clan ended, they decided to withdraw from the other clans entirely and rarely get involved in others' conflicts. This seems to extend to their relationship with humans as well; out of all the clans, Leez notes she's never seen a Kinnara sura, implying that they're rare.
* TokenHeroicOrc: They, the Vritra clan, and the Yaksha clan were the only ones not to retaliate against humans during the fiend magic incidents. Thanks to that, the gods come to their aid when the Taraka clan becomes a threat.

* TheGhost: She's mentioned a few times early on, but doesn't start making appearances until Season 3.
* OnlyFriend: To Taksaka, alongside Vasuki.

!!Shess
!!!Rakshasa, Hereditary Attributes: Light + Unknown
[[quoteright:229:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shess_5009.png]]

The son of Airavata, a Nastika of the Kinnara Clan. He was born shortly after the universe was created, making him the oldest Rakshasa alive. Due to circumstances, he hasn't been able to reach 5th stage.
----
* BadassAndChildDuo: With Leny. He may not seems much of a badass on first glance, but he is one.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Very polite and calm, and would rather avoid killing... but he also makes it clear that really, he's doing ''you'' a favour by acting peacefully, so don't push him.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: In his proper debut, he calmly tells (a very moody) Gandharva that he doesn't care what Gandharva thinks of him, but asks that if he wants to discuss something, then if he could do so with more cordiality. [[BewareTheNiceOnes After all, the Kinnara clan may be neutral, but that doesn't mean they're obliged to welcome hostility.]]
* HealingHands: He's able to transfer his vigour, which essentially heals when it comes to beings with less vigour (i.e. humans).
* HeroicNeutral: Technically, as per his clan's way, he's neutral. However, since that means helping the weaker side to maintain balance, he usually ends up helping the side being victimized.
* HornedHumanoid: He has a pair of dark horns poking out of his hair.
* NervesOfSteel: As Agni notes, Shess seems to have a stronger mind than even most gods and nastika. [[spoiler:Thus, that Shess falls to Frozen Tears as easily as he does is a sign that something fishy is going on.]]
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: When he and Agni swapped favours, the one Shess was meant to do increased exponentially, and yet Shess agreed to carry it out (what he wanted from Agni wasn't even for himself!). In return, [[spoiler:he gets MindRaped and ends up BrainwashedAndCrazy thanks to a mixture of Frozen Tears and Taraka]].
* PapaWolf: Towards Leny. [[spoiler:This puts everyone in an awkward position when she's the only one who can save him, but in a way that endangers her: they know that if Shess wakes up and she's dead, they're in trouble.]]
* RealMenWearPink: Has pink hair and eyes, and wears pink clothes. And, love kids! Sura, half, quarter or human, Shess is a kid-magnet.
* SecretKeeper: PlayedForLaughs. Ran needs transportation to Kaliboom, thanks to a request from Chandra that he's not allowed to tell anyone else about, so...
-->'''Shess:''' [[DeadpanSnarker You think it's okay to tell a sura what you're not allowed to tell any other human?]]
* SeenItAll: Why he's unable to advance to his fifth stage. He needs an experience more intense than anything he's been through... which isn't easy when he's been alive for so long and gone through so much that almost nothing phases him anymore.
* SuperSpeed: He's as fast as some Garuda clan members, though not as fast as Maruna.
* TimeAbyss: He was born near the beginning of the universe.
* TokenHeroicOrc: He and Yuta are the only sura whose presences on Willarv are sanctioned by the gods. He's not without shades of BlueAndOrangeMorality, but he's much better in this regard than Yuta.
* WouldHurtAChild: When he interrupts Kasak and [[spoiler:Maruna]]'s fight, he mentions having beaten a young Kasak.

----
* BadLiar: She quickly tries to backtrack on her comment about the sura realm being unpleasant, which Shess calls her on.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Unusually for a half, she has purple hair and eyes.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Half Kinnara.
* HappilyAdopted: She's doesn't like the Sura realm very much, but she's happy under Shess's care.
* HornedHumanoid: She's depicted with short, blunt horns on the sides of her head in Season 3.
* InterspeciesAdoption: While not officially Shess's daughter--she's referred to as his follower instead--he's pretty much been raising her since the Cataclysm, despite the language barrier.
* AnOfferYouCantRefuse: [[spoiler:Undergo a suicidal task to save Shess, or Chandra will kill him because he's too much of a threat to leave BrainwashedAndCrazy.]] Chandra, when Laila said to get Leny's consent, ''guilt-tripping the little girl was not what she meant''.

!!Vritra Clan
!!!Clan Attribute: Fire
[[folder:The Vritra Clan in General]]
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: They are Sura and share most Sura abilities and attributes, including shapeshifting; in dragon form, they appear somewhere midway between Eastern and Western dragons.
* OneGenderRace: The power of the dragon's breath was balanced out by the unexplained but highly consistent deaths of any two dragons that fell in love. Due to that, the dragon clan was dying out very, very quickly at the beginning of the universe. Since the Primeval Gods didn't want the clan to go extinct, they agreed to fiddle with the laws of reality a bit. In exchange for dragon Halves having the full power of rakshasa, the clan all lost their female forms and became almost entirely emotionless.
* PowerAtAPrice[=/=]EquivalentExchange: At the beginning of the universe, the Vritra made a deal with Visnu. Because the dragons had such powerful breath weapons, they couldn't have children and would die if they tried. Visnu fixed this for them, but at a price: All the dragons had to become male permanently, and any Half that lives past a hundred years would have the power of a 5th stage Rakshasa. The catch here is that along with losing their gender-bender ability, the dragons also lost their emotions and thus no longer had much interest in expanding their dominance, preferring to sleep in their nests. Even worse is that the mothers of Halfs would have to loose eighty years of their life to give birth, deceasing the dragons' desire to have children even more.
* TheStoic: In ''addition'' to being made a single-gender race, dragons were stripped of most of their emotions so they wouldn't reproduce. Some of them kept one emotion very strongly, though, like Taksaka's anger or Vritra's obsession with fighting Taksaka.
* TeamSwitzerland: They're not as explicitly neutral as the Kinnara clan, but they presumably have no alliances either (given their last one was said clan), prefer sleeping over conquering, and didn't take part in the fiendish magic incidents likely out of, again, laziness.

[[folder:Vritra]]
!!Vritra
!!!Nastika, Source Attribute: Unknown

First and current king of the clan. Also the strongest being in the universe after Ananta's death.
----
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Ananta is this to him. Even now that Ananta is ''dead'', Vritra's title is only "strongest in the world without Ananta."
* StoryBreakerPower: [[spoiler:He has a transcendental that could kill any sura, no matter how powerful.]] However, he'd rather sleep than fight.
* WillfullyWeak: Even though he is the ''strongest person in the world'', he was even stronger in his female form - enough to give [[WorldsStrongestMan Ananta]] a run for his money. He gave it up (agreeing for all dragons to be made male when it was necessary for them to become a OneGenderRace) because most other dragons are stronger in their male forms, so it was better that way for the clan as a whole.
* WorldsStrongestMan: Now that Ananta is dead. However, he's been somehow weakened and the position currently belongs to Taksaka.

[[quoteright:244:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/21ddb0ef686174d2a7f01ebc8158dbd3.png]]

The Destruction Dragon, second-in-command of the clan. Kasak's father and Agwen's grandfather. His only emotion is anger. He is one of the two protagonists of {{Literature/The Finite}}, a side-novel.
----
* AbusiveParents: He was one to Kasak, who recalls being beat by him frequently.
* HappilyMarried: Despite all the obstacles, he ended up as this with Ian, even without his earrings.
* HiddenDepths: He's a good gardener. Of all things!
* InterspeciesRomance: With Ian, a Quarter.
* TheMentor: To Riagara who stayed in his nest. He taught her how to fight, and thus she moves more like a dragon than a snake.
* MoralityPet: Deliberately invoked by Vasuki, who chose to live with him to try and control Taksaka's UnstoppableRage.
** Played straight with Ian Rajof, who calmed his anger and made him promise not to get into too many fights.
* TheResenter: Hated Kasak both for costing Ian 80 years of her life and for getting her attention after being born. They've reconciled somewhat, as Taksaka would occasionally visit him and Agwen before the Cataclysm.
* PetTheDog: Despite being in an earring-less and pissed off state, when he takes off from a field and decimates the area (by virtue of being him), he leaves one spot untouched: where Shess is standing. Shess silently thanks him for this bit of consideration.
* SignatureMove: His invisible fire, which Kasak inherited.
* UnstoppableRage: Constantly and with almost no need for provocation. His only emotion is ''anger''.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With any of his friends, aka Vasuki and Airavata.
* WorldsStrongestMan: Funnily enough, The Finite side story actually says Taksaka is now the strongest being in the universe because Vritra has been somehow weakened. Taksaka has enough power that he can threaten Visnu, one of the ''Primeval Gods'', and make the god of ''resurrection'' afraid.

[[folder:Utpala]]

[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/775441d0073ebd93145f685d0d818514.png]]

At the beginning of the universe, Utpala was female and in love with Taksaka; she protested the strongest at the demand that all the dragons become male, and retained more emotions than most afterwards. Her strongest emotion, however, was ''envy'', leading to constant conflict with anyone else who Taksaka got close to. She's a major character in Literature/TheFinite, but is dead in the main timeline and does not appear in the webtoon proper.
----
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: She knew that Taksaka couldn't return her feelings due to the circumstances of the Vritra clan, but was satisfied with the promise that she would always be "the dragon closest to him."
* ExactWords: When Taksaka starts living with Vasuki (who was the only one who could stop him if he went on a rampage) she is extremely upset because he promised that she would always be the one closest to him; he, however, points out that he said she'd always be the ''dragon'' closest to him, and Vasuki is not a dragon. This leads to their falling out.
* GreenEyedMonster: Her driving emotion; she is bitterly envious of anyone else who gets close to Taksaka. [[spoiler:Or not. In reality, she managed to get over her envy generations ago when she realized she had sired a half-dragon.]]
* IncompatibleOrientation: In addition to suffering from being forced to become permanently male, she found that Taksaka no longer tolerated her in that form.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: [[spoiler:Contrary to the envy we're initially led to believe, seeing Taksaka with Ian actually makes her happy, since Ian is her descendant; and she ultimately chooses to die without revealing the truth of the attack on Ian's village to Taksaka, in order to protect him from the person who is really responsible.]]
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler:She is actually Ian's ancestor.]]
* PosthumousCharacter: She's dead by the time the main story takes place.
* TakingTheHeat: [[spoiler:She allows Taksaka to believe that she was responsible for destroying Ian Rajof's village, and lets him kill her so she can die with the knowledge of who is actually responsible, because if she found out who really did it he would seek revenge on them and she believes he'd get killed in the process.]]
* {{Transgender}}: Played for drama. She was forced to take a male form forever, against her will, near the start of the universe, and this is at the root of much of her bitterness towards the gods and the rest of her clan.
* WalkingSpoiler: Her actions, backstory, and motivations in The Finite are key to the story.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Her backstory gives her a lot of reasons to act the way she does; she was forcibly assigned to the wrong gender when the Dragon clan was made a OneGenderRace, her beloved had his emotions stripped away and later rejected her, and [[spoiler:she eventually dies, hated by him, after letting him believe she was responsible for destroying Ian's village. Only Ian knows the truth, and Utpala specifically asks her to never tell anyone. Worse, by the time of The Finite, she's not actually causing trouble anymore and hasn't for generations; but nobody will ever know.]]

First king of the clan.
----
* CoolOldGuy: While he usually took on the form of a preteen, it's stated that his mental age was that of an old man, and accordingly he acted rather grandfatherly.
* FriendToAllChildren: He loved to play with children.
* IntriguedByHumanity: He (and the rest of his clan) is friendlier to humans than most sura clans. As a result, Yaksha Halfs are the most common type of Half.
* PosthumousCharacter: Died long before the story began.
* PowerNullifier: His bones nullify Half transcendentals, and are used by Half hunters. Agwen, as an activist for Half rights, has destroyed most of them by the present.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: When Vritra and Kinnara's alliance dissolved, he advised Kinnara to do what she could to protect her clan, now that they were ally-less, and promised to try and keep his own clan members from attacking hers.

Yuta's mother and the 2nd king of the clan.
----
* BerserkButton: Separating her from Yuta is... not recommended. Including when he's done it himself. [[spoiler:Justified: she was built to be this way.]]
* CombatTentacles: Her true form is an enormous, monstrous-looking, vaguely-female black outline descending into countless tentacles.
* TheDreaded: To her own people and everyone else.
* HealingFactor: She can regenerate indefinitely even after death, although she loses her memories in the process. Combine this with her AntiMagic, and she is an extremely dangerous opponent.
* LieToTheBeholder: She appears to Yuta as looking just like Kali, but to everyone else is a tentacled EldritchAbomination.
* MyBelovedSmother: She wanted to groom Yuta into the image of a king, and a king by the twisted standards of the Chaos Clan at that. She constantly insisted that he shouldn't have friends or stay in his human form. She also claimed that he should view everyone and everything as food, and those who taught him otherwise (like Shuri) would just weaken him. She even followed him into the human realm to take him back home.
* PowerLimiter: Her eyes can temporarily seal the transcendentals and magic of anyone within her range of vision; and she is able to ''permanently'' (or at least, for as long as she lives) seal the transcendentals of even a Nastika.
* ResurrectiveImmortality: When Taraka is killed, she comes back to life, if missing a few key memories.
* WeakButSkilled: She is weaker than a Rakshasa, but her other abilities make up for it.

[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kubera_yuta_secondstage_2490.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250:[[labelnote:Click to see his third stage appearance]]https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kuberayutathirdstage_2843.png[[/labelnote]]]]

A Half-Garuda-Half-Chaos Rakshasa. He was stranded in the human realm during the Cataclysm and is looking for his siblings. He joins the party on their way to Mistyshore after developing a crush on Leez and learning that they too are going to Kalibloom to try to draw the Sword of Return.
----
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: For all Yuta can be very sweet, he can be really stubborn and, when he is, he can become quite obnoxious when he puts his mind to it. Just ask Maruna (not that he's one to talk about being a pain). Ran, however, ''doesn't'' find Yuta to be annoying, and acts something like an older sibling despite being over 200 years years his junior.
* AstralProjection: How he returns in Season 3, while his real body is BoundAndGagged.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He is a perfectly nice and gentle young boy...until he gets hungry and/or angry. He's fond of torturing and killing his prey slowly (usually by eating them alive and forcing the others to watch) and taunting his enemies about it.
* BigEater: Unlike other sura, who eat mainly to replenish vigor and don't need to otherwise, Yuta ''must'' eat regularly to survive.
* BigotryException: Downplayed in one case and subverted in another. The downplayed instance happened among humans: they don't ''like'' him, but they want his help because they feel he might help protect them. The fact that they very clearly want to use him bothers Yuta to no end.
** Subverted when it comes to Leez. Asha at first chastises Leez for her hypocrisy (oh, the irony) in being friends with Yuta despite her absolute hatred of high-rank suras. However, Ran is quick to point out that the only one Leez knew as "high-rank sura" was Maruna, the one that destroyed her village, and that she would have no problem with being Yuta's friend. She later confirms this while talking to Yuta himself, and fully accepts him regardless of what he is.
** ...Or maybe not. When he sees the memories she recovered in Season Three, Yuta remarks that there are other reasons for Leez to hate Garuda rakshasas so much. If, like with Maruna, this applies to a single individual or to the group as a whole is yet to be seen. Regardless, this fact in specific doesn't seem to have changed her relationship with Yuta all that much.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: To an extent after reaching third stage, where he still tries to play nice with humans, but Asha (his confidant) and Kasak (who can hear sura speech) know that he's not quite empathetic or benevolent as he pretends to be.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Even compared to other sura, his mind is ''very'' alien. He has no concept of clan loyalty and will eat "allies" if he feels hungry and doesn't know them personally. He also treats humans like sura, only with the caveat that he can't eat them.
** Even more pronounced in his [[PlotRelevantAgeUp Third Stage.]]
* BoundAndGagged: Deliberately has this done to himself in Season 3, due to his HorrorHunger and to weaken the rest of the Taraka clan.
* CategoryTraitor: Maruna isn't exactly happy that Yuta's helping humans instead of his own clan, and thus considers him to be this. Downplayed, though.
* ChildOfTwoWorlds: Taraka mother, Garuda father. Notably, by definition, ''Yuta shouldn't exist'' - suras from different clans can't produce children between them, so the method of his conception remains a mystery. It might be somewhat explained by the fact that Kali is a primeval goddess even if she adopted a nastika name. Much of Yuta's inner conflict stems from his attempts to conciliate his two halfs: he ''does'' love Taraka in his own way, but despises the part of himself that wants to eat others. As a kid, he even ran away from Taraka to live with his Garuda siblings. There is the not-so-subtle implication that his conflicting loyalties between Leez and Maruna embody those two sides: when he grew up to third stage, it was basically out of a choice he was forced to make between the two of them, and it was framed a him choosing between his Garuda and Taraka halves.
* CreepyGood: His HorrorHunger is usually a detriment, but he's also willing to use it to freak out the enemy.
* TheConfidant: To Asha, Leez, and Ran to varying degrees.
* CoolMask: In his sura form, he has a domino mask like Garuda's. [[spoiler:In his third stage, it covers his face]].
* CuteMute: To humans.
* DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: Played with. Yuta is well aware of his own strength and has fine control over it. However, he can be careless at times, and can break a man's arm by bumping into him. He also overestimates the strength of humans. If Leez weren't MadeOfIron, he could've killed her with a hug.
* EatenAlive: His preferred way of eating.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: His skin is so pale it can look gray at times.
* EyeColorChange: His eyes are normally grey, but they turn red with black sclera when he's using his eye-based AntiMagic ability, [[spoiler:and teal when he's using insight]].
* FisherKing: The strongest yet, in terms of how much he influences the rest of his clan. It seems to be the point behind his birth, as his rise in power means the Taraka clan's rise as well, whether Yuta himself likes it or not.
* FriendOrIdolDecision: Yuta realizes he will have to choose between his brother and Leez when he finds out that the latter wants to kill the former for destroying her village. [[spoiler:He chooses Leez... at least for now, although he still hasn't told her the Sura she's hunting is his brother.]]
* FullFrontalAssault: He's completely naked in his 3rd stage sura form. It wasn't played for fanservice or horror however.
* TheGadfly: When he occasionally lets his mischievous side out, it's usually fairly benign and often cute. [[spoiler:Once he hits Stage 3... Let's just say he starts to take after his mother's BlackComedy ItAmusedMe attitude a bit more frequently.]] It's more prominent in his interactions with Kasak, who's ability to speak and understand the sura tongue means there's no filter in their interactions.
* HeIsAllGrownUp: Once he reached his 3rd stage.
* HeinzHybrid: He appears to be an odd mix between Garuda and Chaos. [[spoiler:Then he displays abilities only gods' should have.]]
* HorrorHunger: For pretty much anything that moves.
* ItGetsEasier: He admits that he's not unfeeling over having to feed on other sura--they ''are'' his own kind, after all--but that he's had to do it so many times that he had no choice but to get desensitized.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: [[spoiler:After he loses control of himself and bites Leez, he vows to stay away from her and only protect her from afar so that it never happens again. It doesn't last, as he returns in order to give her the newly modified Hide of Bondage, and decides to stay with her at her request.]]
* KnownOnlyByTheirNickname: Yuta nor Jatayu are his real name.
* LackOfEmpathy: He doesn't really care about anybody he doesn't know personally. [[spoiler:This is one of reasons he wasn't bothered by Asha's [[SerialKiller past]].]]
* LoopholeAbuse: He made a promise with Shuri that he would never eat humans. When he saw the Half-hunters strike down the woman he was helping, he decided that he would just chew them up and spit them out.
* MaleGaze: To Leez on multiple occasions.
* MissingMom: [[spoiler:His mother Kali left him under the care of his fake mother, Taraka.]]
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Right behind his first set of fangs are more sets, even on his ''tongue''.
* NeverLiveItDown: InUniverse, if Yuta is getting too stubborn, Kasak is happy to remind Yuta that ''he accidentally destroyed Kasak's extremely important earrings''.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: While he doesn't act particularly stupid, his childish behavior and crush on Leez makes it hard to tell how much he knows. Even those who know full well how old he is, such as Asha, can forget his age and experience.
* PlotRelevantAgeUp: As standard for sura. To his intense annoyance, he's been stuck in 2nd stage for a couple hundred years. He finally advances into 3rd stage [[spoiler:to prevent Maruna from killing Leez]].
* PowerIncontinence: He can't control when he's using [[spoiler:insight]] and can't seem to recognize when it activates.
* PowerNullifier: Part of the reason he's so powerful is because his eyes nullify any magic or transcendentals in his range of vision; even in his second stage, he says he would have no trouble defeating a fourth-stage Raksaka if they were transcendental-focused.
* ThePromise: He promised Shuri that he wouldn't eat humans, and that he would only eat sura who attack him. He's serious about keeping these promises, but more of the letter than the spirit.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: As a Sura, he doesn't age the way humans do, and has lived for hundreds of years.
* ResurrectiveImmortality: It's eventually revealed he has this, though no one wants to confirm it as [[spoiler:losing his memories of this life will likely turn him into the monster Kali wants]].
* SdrawkcabName: His alias is "Yuta", which is similar to the name given to him by his Garuda family (Jatayu). Considering that the person who gave him the alias (Leez) had no way of knowing his real name, he was pretty surprised.
* SecretKeeper: Asha eventually spills everything she [[TongueTied could]] to him.
* SingleTargetSexuality: For Leez. The narration even describes him as "the Rakshasa who only has eyes for one girl".
* StarCrossedLovers: The whole "wants to eat her" thing has thrown a giant wrench in any romantic prospects with Leez, suffice to say.
* ThatCameOutWrong: Usually he's able to avoid this since he needs to write it out. However, he at one point tells Leez he doesn't like to wear clothing... (He's referring to human clothing rather than sura, which is actually altered body parts)
* TookALevelInJerkass: His third stage comes with an increased LackOfEmpathy, and he admits to Asha that all of his previous lessons in restraint seem utterly pointless now. Though...
* TookALevelInKindness: ... by Season 3, it's less pronounced, whether because he's mellowed out, the situation's gotten more serious, or because he's trying to not be what Kali wants, or some combination of the above, etc.
* VengeanceFeelsEmpty: In volume 2, Yuta unexpectedly reveals [[BlueAndOrangeMorality he would not seek revenge if someone were to kill Leez. He would just leave without a single regret]]. A pretty stark contrast to Leez and [[spoiler:Asha]], who are both strongly motivated by revenge.
** However, God Kubera implies this might not be exactly the truth.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: After he develops to third stage. Leez is eventually able to get him to wear shirts that she buys for him.
* WillfullyWeak: This is how he hunts. He suppresses his transcendental value to appear weak, then when other sura attack him he takes sura form and eats them.
* {{Yandere}}: After his PlotRelevantAgeUp, he starts thinking things like how [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou he wants to be the one to kill Leez]], though this trait calms down after [[spoiler:he tries to leave for her own safety]].
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Not in terms of [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld years]], but rather his growth stage. He looks older then most Rakshasa do.

The God of Preservation, he is most known for his ability to see the future. He was also largely friendly to everyone and everything he met. It was thanks to his protection that humanity was able to fend off the sura. He separated the realms during the Cataclysm, and then disappeared along with Shiva.

* TheChessmaster: It certainly helps your cause when you can see all potential outcomes.

The Goddess of Chaos, considered mad by the rest, and for good reason. She's Yuta's original mother. She created Taraka to protect him in her absence.
----
* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: No one likes Kali, not even her own son.
* AbusiveParent: Oh, where to start? Pretty much everything that went wrong in Yuta's life can be traced back to Kali somehow. He even calls her out on it in one of her monologues, claiming she knew very well that he would end up being miserable.
* ArchEnemy: Visnu's. He tries to keep the universe functioning, she wants to destroy it.
* AxCrazy: Kali may be a character of many mysteries, but one thing was never in question: she's completely off the rocker. In a dangerous way.
* BerserkButton: [[spoiler:She's very offended by Leez "changing" Yuta's name]], reacting violently and ripping the offending party limb to limb.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: According to Yuta, she doesn't believe that doing wrong this is bad. She even lampshades it, noting that no one will ever understand her idea of justice.
* ComesGreatInsanity: She's a primeval goddess and madder than a hatter.
* CompleteImmortality: Kali's a primeval goddess, meaning that her jurisdiction - and thus herself - can never be destroyed.
* ConsummateLiar: She regularly lies about her Insights.
* TheCorrupter: She has a persuasion skill that makes her able to do this to anyone, [[spoiler:as shown with what she did to Siera]].
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler:She wipes the floor with Leez in Konchez. She even lampshades it, noting that it wasn't even using her true body, but Yuta's double.]]
* DealWithTheDevil: Offered this [[spoiler:to Menaka, taking Visnu's form. She would allow Menaka to bear Gandharva's sins, thus ensuring his redemption, in exchange for Menaka's remaining time.]] [[spoiler:When Menaka died, she was turned into Kali into an entity designed to protect her son - Taraka herself.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Say what you want about Kali, but she'll stick to her goals. Billions of years and countless sealings haven't done anything to threaten her convictions.
* DidntSeeThatComing: She thought Leez would choose to kill Asha instead of Maruna when she sent her to the past.
* EvilIsPetty: Delivers the above mentioned curbstomping to Leez because she dared to give Yuta another name, despite the fact that she remarked herself that Leez's interference would amount to no more than a small detour in her plans.
* TheDreaded: In-universe, anything regarding her is bad news. While she's worshipped by humans, the few records about her aren't exactly praising her kindness.
* GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler:On Konchez, she takes over Yuta's remote body]].
* HaveYouSeenMyGod: She disappeared long before the Cataclysm, shortly after giving birth to Yuta. [[spoiler:She's been sealed away by the gods and nastika.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: The reason she's so set on ending the universe? She cannot stand the existence of any beings stronger than her.
* KarmaHoudini: She's a primeval goddess; in other words, she's basically unkillable - even if she destroys the universe, there isn't really any way to punish her, except sealing, but even that never lasts: she has escaped sealing several times already.
* MadGod: According to Gandharva, she's so bad she's had to be sealed over a hundred times over the history of the universe.
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:She took advantage of Menaka's compassion--as someone who could eventually become her bane--to orchestrate her ultimate death.]]
* MissingMom: To Yuta. At least she left him a simalucrum to act as his mother in her stead, who is...completely...crazy...okay, maybe not a good thing. Yuta even says she knew he would be miserable. Seems like she did it on purpose in order to shape her son.
* MysteriousParent: Yuta's.
* OccultBlueEyes: A marvelous pair of turquoise eyes that appear to indicate the use of Insight.
* TheOldGods: A Primeval Goddess, older than the universe.
* OmnicidalManiac: She's considered one In-Universe.
* PlayingBothSides: She would neglect to nullify some skills and then sit back and watch as other destroyed themselves with them.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: When God Kubera comes to talk to her about Gandharva, she's completely naked.
* ShipperOnDeck: Completely inverted. She considers love to be a disease, and thus she's made sure to give Yuta a compulsion to eat anything he loves.
* SpannerInTheWorks: To Visnu, as his insight is imperfect when it comes to her, meaning that she can mess up his plans.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: The universe has beings stronger than her? Just destroy it all.
* WeWillMeetAgain: Inverted; the last time Yuta saw her, she told him they would never meet again.

The God of Earth, and the god whose name Leez bears; his domains also encompass gravity, wealth, and strength.
----
* TheAtoner: His current motivation seems to be to atone for [[spoiler:killing of Ananta]], although he is clearly increasingly conflicted.
* TheChooserOfTheOne: In a play on this, he, unable to decide, puts the choice in the hands of someone else. However, he doesn't explain the full consequences of the choice.
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: During the day, it's white, but it's golden at night.
* DeathSeeker: An alternate interpretation of what he's up to can be summarised as "the universe's most convoluted, indirect suicide attempt" -- Agni, for one, worries this is the case. Sagara, too, picks this vibe up... and, just doesn't care: as long as he doesn't peg it until she's finished with him, she's fine with it.
* GravityMaster: He is the god of Earth and wealth, after all.
* ManipulativeBastard: He is behind the sura searching for Leez...as well as the one who gave her his name in the first place. Not to mention also saving her hide, just to complicate everything in the process and shorten her life expectancy in the long run. Yay?
* MasterOfTheMixedMessage: Everybody who deals with him for any length of time winds up complaining about this. Agni, Gandharva, Sagara, Leez, every recorded Earth Priest who spent quality time with him or his objects...
* MyGreatestFailure: It's implied that he deeply regrets [[spoiler:his killing of Ananta]]; he specifically warns Leez not to repeat his mistakes, and to stand by those who give her their trust.
* LapPillow: Although the gesture is not appreciated due to feeling like a "wooden pillow" he serves as one to [[spoiler:Leez after saving her from a brutal battle with Sagara]]. [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial He claims that she had crawled on to his lap]] when she asks why...
* TakeAwayTheirName: It's implied he ''literally'' gave his name to Leez. He told her father to name his child Kubera, and from then on refused to use it for himself. He tells Leez that she can only call him 'mister', and even then, only if she doesn't attach any particular significance to it as a name.
* PetTheDog: To animals and Leez.
* PowerDyesYourHair: His normally white-ish hair turns gold at night, along with his eyes.
* TheStoic: Agni notes that he's never seen him smile, and thinks he's lonely. Leez kinda-almost gets a smile out of him on a few occasions, but... there are the ever-present caveats attached.

!!Agni/Babo Kim
!!!Jurisdiction: Nature, Source Attribute: Fire
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kubera_agni_1513.png]]

The incomparably silly God of Fire, summoned by Brilith when she was a child. His easy-going nature is largely an act, meant to reduce the strain on her.
----
* {{Adorkable}}: Despite being a god, he's a giant dork, both in human guise and out of it.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: He's regarded as an outsider among the gods due to his emotional nature.
* BeingGoodSucks: [[spoiler:Both Menaka and Shakuntala]] made their LastRequest to him to not lose faith in Gandharva, knowing that Agni is his only chance for redemption. Thus, Agni does his best to honour that wish, but he knows it costs him a lot of goodwill from his allies and Brilith, and Gandharva constantly letting him down wears on him. Also, not killing Gandharva when he had the chance ultimately leads to Agni [[spoiler:giving up his right to enter Paradise]].
* BerserkButton: When Gandharva [[BlatantLies claims he killed]] [[TheLostLenore a certain woman]], he immediately goes white fire (10,000+ degrees), nearly killing Brilith in the process. The other gods even refer to his "ex" as a button they can press to make him mad.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Brilith notes that she's never seen him mad in all the years she's known him, and likewise his fellow gods find him difficult to anger (BerserkButton aside). Actually pissing him off, though, is a ''bad'' idea.
* BigEater: It helps when food just burns up inside of him. During a meeting, he suggests they get something to eat, to which Brilith points out they just had lunch.
* BirdsOfAFeather: [[spoiler:He was friends with Menaka, which is unsurprising when you consider their similar personalities and positions among their kind.]]
* ButtMonkey: Among the gods. When DeathIsCheap, they treat pushing him until he snaps and kills them as a joke.
* CannotSpitItOut: Despite being obviously head over heels for Brilith, the complications of a god-human romance prevent him from making it explicit. [[spoiler:Also, the millions of years' worth of baggage. He ultimately loses his chance.]]
* CluelessChickMagnet: He's stated to be rather popular among the goddesses, but notices none of them due to his SingleTargetSexuality.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: On one hand, his alias literally means "idiot" and he acts the part. On the other hand, a PhysicalGod.
* ElementalHair: He's the [[PlayingWithFire fire power]] and he's got orange hair.
* FanBoy: His initial disguise when the temple guards find him is to pretend to be Brilith's fanboy. Turns out it wasn't completely an act; he's very disappointed when he accidentally incinerates her autograph a few minutes later.
* FieryRedhead: In the literal sense. Figuratively, it's actually inverted, as his anger is more likely to manifest itself as TranquilFury.
* TheFogOfAges: He implies he doesn't even remember his childhood, he's so old.
* GoAndSinNoMore: It never actually happens, but for most of the first two seasons he's trying to do this to Gandharva. He's not very cooperative.
* GodIsGood: Out of all the gods, he seems to be the only one actively dedicated to protecting humans, such as (ironically) being the only one in the past who cared about Gandharva's slaughters. When he tried (and fails) to protect a small, remote planet from him, the local god even thanked him for bothering to look out for a relative speck in the universe he oversees. In the present, once he reveals himself to the populace, he takes a proactive role in helping them out.
* GoodIsNotSoft: A sane enemy would rather face Agni than Chandra, but at the end of the day, Agni's duty is to protect the universe and he'll put that above just about anything else--and it would be unwise to forget that.
* HonorBeforeReason: He often refuses to go along with anything that goes against his sense of fairness (e.g. holding TheDreaded's child hostage). It's noted that he's sometimes left out of plans because of this, and that if the others knew just how much Agni's let the enemy walk free, he'd probably be straight up imprisoned.
* HotWings: He can manifest wings of fire to fly around during combat.
* LadyAndKnight: The Knight to Brilith's Lady. As with most things in this series, this eventually gets torn apart.
* LonelyAtTheTop: When Gandharva laments that as a king and enemy to the gods, there's no one he can look to for support, Agni silently wonders who Gandharva thinks a god looks to, in that case. As a whole, Agni doesn't really seem to have any friends, given that Yama was the last one he could openly talk to and they lost that friendship long, long ago.
* TheLostLenore: Long ago, there was a human woman he loved. However, he hesitated to start a relationship with her, and she died before he could resolve himself. [[spoiler:Not so lost, as it turns out, because she's Brilith. The woman referred her is one of her past incarnations.]]
* MoralityPet: A bit of one to Gandharva, who tries to repay Agni's sincerity with sincerity when he can. As of the Frozen Tears arc, his main motivation [[spoiler:now that he accepts Shakuntala as dead]] is to be worthy of the right to fight by his side.
* NiceGuy: Gandharva notes that he's the only decent god. In an universe where pretty much every one is one type of JerkAss or another, Agni stands out as someone who's well and truly nice.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Not all of it's faked, but every once in a while he drops the mask and you remember he is very, very old and unspeakably powerful.
** He makes it clear that more of it is faked than you might expect at first after Gandharva interferes with his confrontation with Sagara -- although he seemed to have been completely taken in by Sagara's sob-story, his conversation with Gandharva, who he views as more of an equal, is much colder and makes it clear he wasn't actually buying any of it.
** It's eventually implied this is how he remains in control of his power. He burns up when he's serious, so he plays the fool both to not overexert Brilith and so that he doesn't accidentally destroy anything in a fit of rage.
* ObliviouslyBeautiful: As a {{Foil}} to Gandharva, who takes advantage of his {{Bishonen}} appearance, Agni's a {{Hunk}} but doesn't seem to realize that women tend to swoon in his presence (at the very least, it's not intentional).
* OddFriendship: With Chandra. Agni a tall, handsome NiceGuy that tries his best to be kind and understanding to his summoner, greatly values human life and tries to solve conflcits with diplomacy before appealing to violence. Chandra is short, looks like a 14-year-old vampire, is completely willing to maim his summoner if she becomes a problem (as he has advised Agni several times to do with Brilith), doesn't give a shit about humanity (or at least not about individual lives) and has an attack-first-ask-second approach to conflict, particularly if it involves suras. Even their fighting styles mirror each other's: Agni is offense-based, Chandra's powers are mostly of the support kind. Despite all this, Agni is shown at the beginning of season three to hang out around Chandra and Laila [[spoiler:when his relationship with Brilith goes south]]. They also have a fairly good amount of teamwork and seem to respect each other's opinions, even if they disagree about (many) things.
* OneTrueLove: With Brilith, though with a lot of complicated feelings involved. See her section for more details.
* OnlySaneMan: He's just about the only player who doesn't have a major grudge and/or isn't completely dismissive of one side, and therefore tends to act as mediator. As soon as he's out of the picture, expect arguments to break out.
* PlayingWithFire: He is the God of fire.
* ThePrankster: He's fond of playing jokes on people.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: As a god, Agni could do whatever he wanted and no one would be allowed to complain. Because this is Agni, though, he tries to be as fair as possible and avoids jumping straight to distrusting or using people, in sharp contrast to Chandra. It's little wonder Leez despises Chandra but has no issue cooperating with Agni.
* ResurrectiveImmortality: As a god, he has this. He's died at least a few times by Gandharva's hands in the past.
* SingleTargetSexuality: [[spoiler:He's "betrothed" to a human, meaning that her soul will constantly be reincarnated--currently in the form of Brilith. This has been a constant source of grief, seeing as how it never ends well for either of them, but he still can't let go of her.]]
* TragicBromance: What his relationship with Gandharva was shaping up to be, at least at first. Him being a god and Gandharva being a nastika - and a king, at that - made it difficult for said bromance to even ''exist'' at first. Their allegiances at the present time also put them at odds, no matter how clear it is that neither wants things to be the way they are. Gandharva finally making up his mind in season three may put them on the road to avert it, if he manages to truly earn Agni's trust.
** Backstory-wise, them being leading members of enemy species was not even the cherry of the cake. Season 3 flashbacks reveal that Agni [[spoiler:despised Gandharva the most of all the gods, and only gave up on killing him for Menaka's sake. It seems his hatred calmed down at some point before the current time, which only makes his current conflict with Gandharva even more tragic to behold: despite the fact that Agni decided to spare his life and to stick to this decision even after Menaka passed away, despite the fact that Gandharva truly respects him, despite them ''not wanting it'', he and Gandharva ''still'' end up opposing each other.]]
* WalkingShirtlessScene: In his human guise, he would wear a hooded sweatshirt. Once he reveals himself to the public, he ditches it entirely.
* WorthyOpponent: To Gandharva. It got into some really convoluted and complex frenemy territory maaaaaany centuries ago, and just keeps getting more... solid.

[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/73deadde4159cb28182ba8af2b909d75.png]]

The God of Sky. He was appointed to be the king of the gods by the Primeval Gods.
----
* BrokenPedestal: Very downplayed among humans, but here. According to [[TheWikiRule the wiki]], Indra was previously seen as benevolent, but refused to answer a single summon since the Cataclysm. He's still the second most popular god, just behind Visnu, though.
* {{Hypocrite}}: At least according to Manasvin.
* JerkassGod: Among the gods seen mocking Agni for empathizing with humans in flashbacks. Manasvin's words in a flashback also hint he's this. Keep in mind that said words grouped Indra with Varuna and Kubera, the greatest sura killer and the one who killed Ananta, respectively. We know nothing of Indra's actions, but to be put under the same umbrella as these two gods, he must not be an angel.
* ShockAndAwe: Indra-attribute magic is electricity-based.

[[folder:Surya]]
!!Surya
!!!Jurisdiction: Unknown, Source Attribute: Light
The God of Light. [[spoiler:During the Cataclysm, he provided Saha On with an oracle. The contents of the oracle are currently unknown.]]
----
* GodIsGood: At the very least, based off flashbacks and mentions of him, he's one of the only gods who sympathizes with Agni's compassion and believes in humanity's autonomy.
** ''However'', he refused Saha's three attempts at summoning; having Surya around could probably be of great help, even more with Saha as his summoner. Had Surya accepted, [[spoiler:who knows if Saha would have even died]]. So yeah, Surya is no Kali, but he's no Agni, either.
* GoodIsNotSoft: You know the device Laila received in season three? He created it. And used it to hand Chandra his ass. The catch? Said device deals damage based on how much the target ''repents'' their sins. Agni even calls it unreasonable. To this day, merely seeing it makes Chandra afraid. Surya may be nice (for a god), but he's not to be trifled with.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Chandra]]
!!Chandra
!!!Jurisdiction: Nature, Source Attribute: Darkness
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kubera_chandra.png]]

The God of Darkness. He was summoned during the Cataclysm, but accidentally killed his summoner by using up their lifespan because the rules of summoning had changed.
----
* AntiHero: Utterly ruthless and unpleasant, but there's no denying that at the end of the day, he's out to do his duty.
* CastingAShadow: As the God of Darkness.
* ColdEquation: Oh, ''yes''. Chandra very much upholds this mentality, which is one of the reasons he's so unpleasant; he's very much willing to sacrifice the few to save the many. Case in point, when Shess goes berserk due to a psychological transcendental in season three, he's completely fine with [[spoiler:letting Leny die]] to bring him back, as an out-of-control stage four Rakshasa in the middle of a human city isn't quite great.
* CreepyGood: Face it, few of the people he's defending would volunteer to spend a whole hour near him without other reasons, god or not. Chandra. Is. Creepy.
* CreepyShadowedUnderEyes: Guy looks like somebody who doesn't know the meaning of the word "sleep".
* DudeWheresMyRespect: He's rather frustrated that Laila doesn't treat him like a god, whereas even Agni gets respect. It completely flies over his head that her treatment of him is very much a result of [[JerkassGod his treatment of her]] [[AMillionIsAStatistic (and everybody else)]].
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Eerie to the point of downright creepy.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: [[spoiler:Seen kissing Laila, shirt unbuttoned, approximately 5 minutes after she summoned him. When Claude interrupts them, he calls him a "lower life form" and threatens him. All of this happens within ''three panels''.]]
* HiddenDepths: [[spoiler:When Laila obtains a weapon that harms those who feel guilt over their sins, ''Chandra'' of all people is notably afraid.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: How ''dare'' Laila not swoon over him when all he did was to kill her mentor and not even blink about it. And ''of course'' he has the right to despise Gandharva for killing humans and not giving a shit about it.
** On a lesser note, Chandra wastes no opportunity to criticise [[SingleTargetSexuality Agni]] for being too lenient towards his summoner and actually caring about her opinons, when Chandra himself is completely in denial over how much Laila despises him.
** He doesn't spare two fucks about individual human lives, but dislikes Leez for not being "pious enough"; keep in mind that she only adopted said stance after seeing this very attitude in several gods and nastikas.
* JerkassGod: Chandra embodies everything that people (those who know, at least) hate about gods: callous, unempathetic, and believes AMillionIsAStatistic. He's even a jerk to his ''summoner'', although less in comparison to others. It must be said, however, that compared to a few (*cough* Brahma *cough*) that not even ''try'' to stall the universe's end, Chandra is almost a saint. That alone should tell you all you need to know about gods in the ''Kubera'' universe.
* JerkassHasAPoint: When he calls out Ruche's [[GlorySeeker bragging]], he points out that [[spoiler:Saha should have been protected]].
-->'''Chandra:''' So basically you want me to see you as a hero for saving people? ({{Beat}}) I appreciate your efforts, but you failed to protect the most important thing...
* LackOfEmpathy: He thinks Laila should just "get over" the fact he accidentally killed her mentor during the Cataclysm. He also suggests that Agni should just let Brilith die and get a new summoner.
* MadGod: He's a bit unhinged. Compared to others in the setting (looking at you, [[OmnicidalManiac Kali]]), however, he's as good as you get of a god. [[NiceGuy Agni]] is, after all, the exception to the rule.
* NotSoAboveItAll: As is noted, he tries to be TheSpock and usually succeeds, but he loses sight of this whenever something catches his interest (e.g. Laila, as he's in denial over her true feelings towards him).
* OddFriendship: See Agni's entry.
* PunyEarthlings: He considers humans to be lower lifeforms. Said attitude is the root for Leez's despisal of him (and every god or sura that holds the same opinion).
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Downplayed. He's a jerk, but he's not evil.
* TheSpock: Motivated by cold logic, unlike the more sentimental Agni. Or so it seems; Chandra's no robot, and has feelings of his own that sometimes guides his decisions - he only accepted Laila's summoning because she interests him, after all.
* SupportPartyMember: While he does have offensive transcendentals of his own, it's more effective if he amplifies others'.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: With Agni, at times. For the most part, Agni doesn't mind Chandra, but they're on opposite ends of the empathy spectrum and it shows. Also, Chandra kind of ruined his life and is unapologetic about it, so there's that. However, they are also friends of a kind; see Agni's entry under OddFriendship.
* WalkingSpoiler: That he has a role at all reveals that Laila ends up summoning him.

[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/e0fdd7b80991a872e9d36911cf64de77.png]]

The God of Death. He holds final dominion over all mortal souls; not even the Primeval Gods can oppose him.
----
* ByTheBookCop: Other gods are constantly harassing him to extend the lives of favored mortals, and he is constantly denying them. It's not that he's cruel, he just wants everyone to follow the rules.
* DeathTakesAHoliday: After Agni beats him up [[spoiler:to extend Brilith's lifespan]], he goes on strike, forcing his assistants to work extra hard.
* EverybodyHatesHades: Averted. Yama is stern and unfriendly but treated with no less respect than the others (aside from his job perhaps being a thankless one) and is portrayed sympathetically. It's clear he has compassion and that's exactly why he's so strict: it'd be painfully unfair to favour one human over another in his case.
* RedHerring: He's not the god Claude made a deal with, though that should have been obvious taking into account Yama's personality, as said deal went against everything he stands for.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: He and Agni used to be good friends, but as Yama hardened his heart to deal with his job, they seemed to have drifted apart.

to:

\n[[foldercontrol]]\n\n!Human Realm\n[[folder:Humans in General]]\n* TheAlliance: The six cities have one of sorts, sending help to one another when there are sura attacks and generally keeping constant communication.
* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Most humans believe suras are this; of course, the truth is more complicated. It's important to note, however, that humans have been the suras' punching bags for millions if not billions of years, and thus this view of them is not entirelly unwarranted.
* AlwaysLawfulGood: On the other hand, gods are seen this way, even if they're actually only a bit better. Even characters that are able to point out how gods and suras aren't all that much apart on the morality spectrum can't do much but obey to gods, as everyone else sees them this way.
* CategorismAsAPhobia: The prejudice against halfs reeks of this. It only ever started after the emotional ressonance led to them going berserk during the Cataclysm.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Almost all purebloods have matching hair and eyes.
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: Fiendish magic. Just as divine magic harnesses the power of a god, fiendish magic borrowed the power of a nastika. It was so dangerous that mistakes could entail on the death of not only the user's enemies but also their allies and the very one who used the spell. Humans gave up on it around a thousand years ago, something that did not sit well with a few suras.
* EasyRoadToHell:
[[Characters/KuberaHumanRealm Human society has this mentality, which is discussed in season three. It's eventually revealed that sins such as "blasphemy" aren't really sins; when discussing the matter, Eline and Laila notice that using the fear of going to hell because of your sins (especially blasphemy) is a way for the gods to control humans, not unlike how adults scare children into behaving with the boogeyman.
* ElementalNation: Slightly so. It's possible to give a loose characterization to each city based on the elements of the barriers that protect them. Atera is the "City of Fire", all in pink and red, just north of the equator; Rindhallow is the "City of Death and Darkness", the coldest of the six cities in Willarv and also the one with the biggest reputation for sura-killing. Eloth, the City of Light and Creation, is a beautiful metropolis and the center of the magic world. Mistyshore, the City of Water, is the city by the sea and where one goes to visit the water channels. Kalibloom is the City of Earth and Chaos, all in high mountains and with a black sky where stars cannot be seen ([[spoiler:and also the place where most Taraka attacks happen]] in season three). Finally, Aeroplateau is a flying city that harbors the Temples of Air and Sky. However, magic isn't limited to said elements and the citizens don't really fit a single archetype.
* FantasticRacism: Halfs have been victims of this since N0.
* GrimUpNorth: Rindhallow, the coldest of the six cities, is in the northern pole of Willarv and has a dark reputation among suras.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Halfs are half sura. However, most halfs come from other halfs rather than having a sura parent.
* LittleBitBeastly: Halfs retain traits of their sura heritage. This actually allows sura to masquerade as them when entering cities.
* TheMagocracy: Magicians are the highest social group among humans; pretty much every single ruling or somehow influent position a human can hold in Willarv has something to do with magic.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Quarters age at 1/2 the rate purebloods do. Halfs age at 1/4.
* PunyEarthlings: A number of sura and gods consider humans to be lesser beings, if not irrelevant ants.
* TheTheocracy: In a way, yes, and even more so in places where gods are summoned. Priests and priestesses generally are at the very top of the social hierarchy and have as much authority as real-world rulers. It's even said in-universe that what a god says immediately becomes akin to law. Interestingly, things were changing after the Cataclysm; however, as gods began to reappear in the human realm, things went back to how they were, something a few characters actually lament.

!!Leez's Village
[[folder:Kubera Leez]]
!!Kubera Leez/Leez Haias
!!!Pureblood, Birth Attributes: Kubera-Kubera-Kubera
[[quoteright:300:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/leezprofile_2241.png]]
[[caption-width-right:300:[[labelnote:Click to see her appearance as of "Your Justice and Mine"]][[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/leez_s2_portrait.png]][[/labelnote]]]]

The heroine of the story, the "Human with the God's Name" that the sura are searching for. She's a bit empty-headed, but good-natured and friendly. Her overriding goal is to exact revenge on the sura who destroyed her village.
----
* AlternateIdentityAmnesia: [[spoiler:Cannot remember anything from the times when her "friend" takes over her body.]]
* ArtShift: Her character design changes dramatically (and permanently) when [[spoiler:she realizes Asha was just using her]]. Particularly noticeable because it happens ''instantaneously'', between one panel and the next.
* AttackReflector: The Golden Knight lets her reflect transcendental attacks back at their user, although it costs her vigor proportional to the power of the attack.
* AudienceSurrogate: Initially, Leez knew very little about sura and magic, so having things explained to her was a way to have them explained to the audience.
* AutoRevive: One of the powers she gets from the Golden Knight, though it drains all her vigor when it goes off.
* BadassOnPaper: She's incredibly strong, is in possession of two insanely powerful magical artifacts, and has even learned physical augmentation magic, but is still consistently overmatched by all the godlike beings in the story, and is also suppressing herself quite a lot emotionally.
** She grows into a proper badass as time goes on. According to Mirha's observations, with the Golden Knight and the Sword of Return she's the strongest human fighter on the ''planet'', outside of Kasak (who can turn into a [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons giant dragon]]).
* BadDreams: After the [[spoiler:battle with God Kubera and Asha's revelation of what Leez really means to her and what Asha did to her father]], Leez frequently has dreams about the both of them and how they betrayed her, causing her to wake up screaming and in cold sweat.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Why she gives Ran the Neutral Bow, despite how badly she wanted it at first. As she puts it, the kind words he said while sticking up for her against Asha were worth far more than anything she could get for the bow.
* BigEater: Food is never far from Leez's mind. In fact, it's often the first thing she thinks of in new places: eating the local specialties (in copious amounts).
** Becomes HarsherInHindsight when it's revealed that she eats so much as a way of coping with stress.
* BigSisterInstinct: To Yuta, partially due to the fact that she doesn't know that he's actually much older and stronger than her. Not any more after his development into third stage.
* ABirthdayNotABreak: Her 16th birthday was the start of it all. More recently, she spent seven years in the sura realm, which pretty much means seven birthdays focused on survival and likely nothing more.
* BookDumb: Although she's not so much ''dumb'' as she is simply ignorant of the world around her, due to never being able to leave her village or go to school.
* BreakTheCutie: Her village's destruction broke her. [[spoiler:After Asha reveals she was just using her and only spared her life because of her father, she breaks even more]].
* BrokenBird: After the destruction of her village, although she hides it well. [[spoiler:After it becomes clear that Asha was using her, she no longer bothers to hide it.]]
* BrokenPedestal: While she was quite pious originally, seven years in the sura realm lead her to see gods as bullies. The true reason behind this change were not completely explained yet. [[spoiler:On a more personal note, it seems she no longer holds Mister in the same high regard as she did before, just like he predicted. She even calls him incompetent when they meet in Konchez.]]
* ButterFace: Although she's drawn much the same as everyone else, it's made clear by everyone's reactions that she's actually kinda ugly. Every once in a while she's drawn "realistically," and turns into a {{gonk}}. On the other hand, it's made clear that [[SheIsAllGrownUp when she's a few years older]]...
* TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive: And it's willing to nuke it out of existence.
* CharacterDevelopment: From IdiotHero to ExtremeDoormat to a rare heroic version of BecameTheirOwnAntithesis.
* TheChewToy: A rather sad example. Everything she's known and loved has been destroyed, and her primary protector, Asha, doesn't show the least bit of respect for her. She knows at some level that Asha is not trustworthy, but she's so desperate to avoid being abandoned that she keeps playing the ditz act and suffers whatever criticism comes her way. To top it off, seven years spent in the sura realm meant she ended up being the target of several powerful suras.
* ClingyCostume: [[spoiler:The Hide of Bondage, after being modified with Yuta's scarf, is this. She can take it off, but if she gets more than a few feet away from it, it will reach out and grab her.]]
* ClingyMacGuffin: She has a tendency to collect these. She can't remove the Golden Knight without cutting off her arm, she can't get rid of the modified Hide of Bondage, and while she technically ''can'' leave the Sword of Return behind, doing so would just mean she'd be stuck with all its disadvantages and none of its advantages.
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: In-universe, in a way. Leez can only accept Asha's CallToAdventure because she lost her family and village - ''however'', it can be argued that reasons she's this are all linked to Asha one way or another. [[spoiler:It was Asha the one who murdered Rao]], and although she wasn't responsible for it, she's very much connected to the reason behind the red sky attacks. Leez being an orphan meant that Asha could toss her around whatever way she wanted, because not only Leez did not have anyone to defend her (at least until Ran showed up), but she wouldn't defend herself out of fear of abandonment. Her lack of family or other connections also meant she was easy prey to whoever wished to use her, such as Claude suggesting Yuta be allowed [[spoiler:to devoure her as many times he wanted because of the Golden Knight]] - which wouldn't be possible if her parents were around to defend her, as she wouldn't even be there in the first place. Yes, Leez being orphaned was very convenient to everyone - except Leez herself.
* CryIntoChest: When she meets Yuta after [[spoiler:the battle at Aeroplateau and Rindhallow]], she winds up crying into his chest.
* CuteBruiser: She packs a ''very'' surprising wallop, even though she's not the smallest girl you'll meet. Just ask the two gods she surprised when she hit out at them in passing, as it actually hurt.
* DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou: What she hopes is the case, as she would rather her father be unable to reach her than dead.
* DangerousSixteenthBirthday: Her village is destroyed the day she turns 16.
* DeconstructedCharacterArchetype: [[spoiler:During the later half of season two she becomes a deconstruction of a typical shoujo romance heroine. Her original headstrong [[TheLadette Lad-ette]] personality slowly becomes replaced by a standardized ExtremeDoormat - because a chain of tragedies and escalating emotional abuse from the person she trusted the most robbed her of all self-confidence and left her an emotional wreck. She eventually TakesALevelInBadass and recovers her sense of self again, but it’s clear the old Leez no longer exists.]]
* DespairEventHorizon:[[spoiler:Seems to have crossed it as of the "Your Justice and Mine" arc.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Tells Asha "If it's not possible, I'll '''make''' it possible."
* DisappearedDad: While the full situation is unknown, she has never met her father. She hopes he's alive, but their aren't indications otherwise. As it turns out, [[spoiler:Rao is actually dead, killed by none other than]] [[spoiler:Asha herself]].
* [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength Does Not Know Her Own Strength]]: Played with. She doesn't know the full extent of what she can do, as she's still learning and has been kept very much in the dark. But, she knows she can cause havoc if she's not careful, so panics if she accidentally lets loose without thinking. This is often played for humor... but, not always. Both God Kubera and Agni note that she could accidentally kill a human in one hit if she wasn't careful. Fortunately, she eventually gets a PowerLimiter.
* DoomedHometown: This is what kicks her whole journey off.
* DullEyesOfUnhappiness: [[spoiler:Gets these more and more often as she graduates from simply hiding the amount of grief she’s carrying to becoming a full on StepfordSmiler.]]
* DudeWheresMyRespect: [[spoiler: Asha treats Yuta with a fair amount of respect from the start and gradually begins to treat Ran as an equal as time goes on. Unfortunately, her treatment of Leez only gets worse.]].
* FantasticRacism: She doesn't have much of an opinion on sura, except extreme hatred for Garuda clan Rakshasa like the one that destroyed her village. [[spoiler:After seeing the memories she recovered from her implied summoning of a god from when she was five years old,]] Yuta says [[spoiler:Maruna's attack was not the only reason for her to hate the Garuda clan so much.]]
* FireForgedFriends: She admits that they can't quite be called close, but spending seven years in the sura realm with Kasak--the only other human--has made them better friends.
* FutureBadass: If the various Insights of either "Mister", Agni or Taraka are anything to go by.
* GenericCuteness: Explicitly invoked. The author includes an out-of-character note from their AuthorAvatar that the usual cute-ish image we see of Leez is just the author self-indulgently making her lead character look more beautiful than she really is, and that she's actually somewhat ugly. ('Butterface' is the specific term used.)
* GeniusDitz: Despite never being able to go to school, she is very perspective, intuitive, and has excellent recall. She can remember conversations word-for-word.
* GenkiGirl: She's very cheerful, energetic, will share her fleeting impressions on most things to anybody in earshot, is quick to hug and is quite loud and appreciative. She appears to be deliberately playing this up due to her fear of abandonment.
* GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler:By someone who "wishes her happiness, more than anyone else in the world."]] [[spoiler:Who's revealed to be her own self from N23, with Kali's help.]]
* HiddenDepths: Very much so. And, so hidden, ''she'' has no idea how deep they go. At the very least, it's obvious she's playing up the ditz act both to suppress her own inner suffering and out of an intense fear of abandonment, and she's aware of much more than she's letting on. Even to herself.
* HopeSpot: In Aeroplateu, she meets Mirha and the two of them form a bond. As Asha's trial is underway, Mirha informas Asha that she will take care of Leez from now on. After all the shit Asha put the poor girl through (for absolutely no reason ''at all''), it seems things will finally started going the right way for her... but then everything goes to hell in the most absolute way possible.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: [[spoiler: Ultimately averted for the little good it does her. She knows both Asha and "Mister" are behaving suspiciously, and she initially yells at them for it. However, she changes her mind about them after they come to her aid in situations where it would be very easy to simply leave her behind. Near the end of season two, one leaves her practically an EmptyShell of her former self and the other turns out to be the mastermind behind the red sky attacks which destroyed her village.]]
* HumbleHero: When Brilith tells her she ought to boast more about her power, lest she want to be known as just "the girl who drew the Sword of Re" forever, Leez points out that that ''is'' all she really did and it doesn't feel right to brag about abilities that were pretty much given to her. Next to the SmugSuper attitude of the sura and gods, Brilith finds Leez's outlook refreshing.
* IdiotHero: She's more ignorant than idiotic, having flashes of brilliance when she's allowed enough information to work with and time to think.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: The reason she does not (outwardly) question Asha's actions.
* InterspeciesRomance: She's a pureblood, Yuta is a Rakshasa. Except that, like everything else in ''Kubera'', it's not that simple: [[spoiler:they actually tried during the seven years spent in the sura realm but nothing will ever come out of this, it seems, because of the small detail that ''Yuta has a compulsion for eating those he loves''. They end up giving up on it.]]
* IWantMyMommy: As multiple gods' insights show.
* KnownOnlyByTheirNickname: She goes by Leez Haias (a combination of her parents surnames) to hide her real name, which is a god's. [[spoiler:She's still referred to as Leez after her real name is revealed.]]
* LeeroyJenkins: More than a few times, Leez basically plows forwards taking the simple "smash at big thing with fists/sword" approach to combat. However, it's justified, played with, subverted ''and'' deconstructed.
** She has a tendency to throw herself at enemies she knows are vastly superior to her in strength -- mainly because those are the only kind she tends to get aimed at her. Often justified, as she mainly does this when defending others, or when alternative means to solve the issues aren't apparent to her because of her perceptual or knowledge deficiencies: she can't communicate easily with Sura to find out what is going on and why they keep showing up. That, and they (as well as other very powerful people) have reasons to want to kill her. Also, she knows for sure that she's more durable than most, she has ''pitiful'' levels of self-worth and has been actively held back from learning more diverse fighting styles and tactics. "Attack!" is basically all she has as a tool to work with.
** Her current fighting style entails throwing herself at the enemy, getting one or two hits in, being tossed around like a ragdoll, regenerating, and then repeating this. This is more effective than it sounds, but the toll on her is hideous.
* LettingHerHairDown: She stops wearing her GirlishPigtails after her DespairEventHorizon.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Asha and others actively keep her in the dark about a lot of what's going on. This does not help her already crumbling mental state.
* LoserProtagonist: At first. She does grow much stronger physically, but the events of the webtoon have a significant negative effect on her mentally.
* MadeOfIron: She is far more durable than a pureblood teenage girl should be. She is also very resistant against cold temperatures, swimming in the frigid water channel (which the author notes would give most people cardiac arrest). [[spoiler:It's revealed after she gains the Sword of Return that she had regenerative abilities beyond that of a normal human as well, though the sword now suppresses them.]]
* {{Masquerade}}: Her whole life is basically this. She goes by the name "Leez Haias", but her actual name is Kubera Leez. She wasn't allowed to leave her village - even to go to school - because of this. Recent revelations in season three [[spoiler:imply even her life before the destruction of her village was this to some extent: it seems the villagers died ten years before Maruna's attack, but Leez believed they were alive for some reason. This is yet to be properly explained.]]
* MeaningfulName: So meaningful, it's the driving force behind the whole plot. Kubera
Realm]][[note]]''Leez's Village'' (Kubera Leez, the [[{{Tagline}} "girl with a god's name."]]
* MissingMom:
Anna vanished with her village's destruction. It is unknown whether she's alive or dead.
* MoralityPet: Possibly to Asha. [[spoiler:She isn't]].
* NomDeMom: She took on her mother's last name and uses her father's last name as her first name as an alias.
* NotAfraidToDie: She fully accepts that she could die trying for her revenge. This is only reinforced when she learns [[spoiler:of her short lifespan]].
** During the attack on Aeroplateau, she thinks this word for word.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: She's far smarter than she appears, mainly being BookDumb, but she is engaging in a lot of hardcore self repression. She seems like an airheaded ditz, but time progresses, the more clear it becomes that she's actually quite sharp, but also much more emotionally fragile than her outward behavior suggests.
* PleaseDontLeaveMe: In a dream, she begs her mother not to leave her.
** [[spoiler:If the memories she recovered are anything to go by, she also did something similar when she was a child.]]
** On an even more depressing note, this is the reason why she clings to Asha despite all the abuse: Leez is terrified of being left alone.
* PluckyGirl: Frequently jumps into battles she can't win. Her lack of worry over her own safety it's actually one of her major psychological issues.
* {{Revenge}}: For her village.
** [[spoiler: and as of the end of season 2, her father Rao]]
* SecretSecretKeeper: [[spoiler:She figures out that Yuta is a sura long before he reveals it to her. She simply kept quiet about it because she hoped he'd trust her enough to tell her himself someday.]]
* SheCleansUpNicely: When Mirha puts makeup on her, Yuta [[DistractedByTheSexy gets so distracted]] that he falls off of the tree branch he was standing on.
* SheIsAllGrownUp: The narrative makes it clear that the version we usually see is actually pretty ugly, even if GenericCuteness covers it up; but when she gets a temporary PlotRelevantAgeUp, it's made clear that in a few years she will be genuinely beautiful.
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:Her giving Yuta his moniker was this to Kali's plans to some level. Him recognizing "Yuta" as his name weakened his true name given to him by his mother, and thus put quite a bit of her plans in jeopardy. Kali herself, however, doesn't consider this to be a major loss as much as something annoying, as she predicted Leez would only be a small detour in her plans.]]
* StatuesqueStunner: Her older self.
* StepfordSmiler: Inside, she's hurting badly. Her whole GenkiGirl outlook isn't a lie. But she is playing it up to both keep herself going and not alienate others. [[spoiler:The facade finally cracks completely in ''Your Justice And Mine''. She reveals that she really was aware of everything that was going on, yet she couldn't bring herself to leave Asha because she thought she had nothing else to live for.]]
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Leez as an adult is said to look exactly like a female version of her father.
* TongueTied:
** She can't talk about god Kubera.
** And again in Season 3, but this time [[spoiler:about Kali]]. Luckily for her, she's trying to explain this to Agni, who's aware of this effect and easily deduces what's going on.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Curry Mushrooms.
* [[TurnOutLikeHisFather Turn Out Like Her Father]]: Vayu warns her that she's walking the same path
Haias, Rao did: powerful human figher, short, lonely life. In many ways, her story if pretty much a repeat of her father's.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler:She will die at the latest, in her mid-twenties.]] [[spoiler:It's implied this is a result of her having summoned a god as a child, but as of now there is very little information about it.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Green in her case.
* YouKilledMyFather: Leez is utterly enraged when Asha reveals who killed Rao, [[spoiler:Asha herself.]]

Leez's mother; almost nothing is known about her, though there are some hints that she may be more important than she seemed at first.
----
* ActionGirl: According to her friends.
* BladeOnAStick: Seemed to have used a spear as her main weapon pre-Cataclysm.
* FantasticRacism: Completely averted. Anna was known for befriending halfs.
* HiddenDepths: She's simply one of Leez's (many) trauma fuels, right? Wrong. It seems there was far more to Anna than it meets the eye. For instance:
** She and Rao got together. He was known for being so disinterested in women that people actually thought he was gay. The fact that they kept their relationship a secret implies that whatever it was that Rao was involved in, Anna was at least in the loop, or had some sort of knowledge that at least something was going on.
** She was a fighter before the Cataclysm, known for having half friends.
** Rao named Leez "Kubera", but it seems it was Anna the one who instructed their daughter not to say this name to people after her 16th birthday. Also, she never allowed Leez outside of their village - in other words, she seemed to have at least some sort of awareness of the danger her daughter would be in if the was outed as a Kubera.
** Last but not least, it seems that for some reason people thought she [[spoiler:died]] in N5, as season three shows. What ''actually'' happened to her [[spoiler:and, it seems, to Leez's whole village]] that year is a mystery.
* MysteriousParent: Possibly even more so than Rao. We know the city he (probably) came from, how he died, what sort of reputation he had, and, from some comments, even a bit about his personality. Anna is a question mark.
* RetiredBadass: She fought in the war that ended with the Cataclysm, and was known for having many Half friends.

He left the village before it was destroyed in order to buy Leez a birthday present, and told his brother they should wait at the magic guild during the attack on Atera before they open it up to refugees.

The current Priestess of Fire, who summoned the fire god Agni when she was a child.
----
* AchillesHeel: Agni's. He may be the strongest being on Willarv, but he can only last as long as Brilith is alive, so targeting her is a good way to keep him restrained.
* {{Adorkable}}: Due to her FriendlessBackground, she's clueless on how friendships work and is elated when she and Asha argue, as that's a positive sign according to her research!
* AlwaysSecondBest: To her mother.
* AntiHero: [[spoiler:After awakening her past memories, she becomes ruthless and solely focused on TheNeedsOfTheMany.]]
* BarrierMaiden: Subverted. Other people thought she was the one who responsible for the barrier, but it was Agni who actually did the job for her while she maintained his existence in the human realm.
** Played straight later on, when she actually has to maintain the barrier herself. Other characters notice that it's not nearly as strong as it was before.
* BloodFromTheMouth: During both attacks on Atera.
* CleavageWindow: Her new outfit after the second attack on Atera has one. She actually wears a dress under it to shrink the window a bit.
* ColourCodedForYourConvenience: Invoked. As Priest of Fire, Brilith knows people expect to see her in red. She actually resents it a little since she doesn't even like red that much, and it's why she wears a blue dress in Season 2 (Agni didn't like it at first--it's ''Gandharva's'' colour!--but quickly relented when he realized how much it meant to Brilith).
* {{Determinator}}: She resists and tries to attack Sagara despite knowing that she is hopelessly outmatched.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Inverted. [[spoiler:She was quite sweet and kind before the TimeSkip, but after recovering her memories she became colder and far more ruthless. So maybe a Freezing Fire Queen.]]
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:Every time she's regained her memories of her past lives. This is the only time she's chosen to keep living, due to the universe being in peril.]]
* ElephantInTheLivingRoom: Her [[spoiler:drastic personality change]] has not gone unnoticed, but no one's sure if they should even bring it up.
* FantasticRacism: [[spoiler:After regaining her memories, she shows extreme hatred of both gods and suras, mainly nastikas. This stems from when the two races banded together to exterminate the first human race, of which she was a member. She and Leez even bond over their dislike for them.]]
* GoneHorriblyRight: How she feels about her success as a Priest. Thanks to Agni, she set up a perfect barrier to protect Atera... meaning that all of the Priest candidates left for better prospects as they were no longer needed, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero leaving Atera with few mages and thus practically defenceless when Sagara and co. break the barrier and attack]].
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: She has low self-esteem and frequently feels she's a burden to Agni.
* IllGirl: As a result of her sacrificing most of her lifespan to summon Agni and protect her city.
* ImperiledInPregnancy: [[spoiler:Flashbacks have her pregnant, crying and surrounded by flames and burned bodies. It seems to be a memory from her first life, although it may be of other reincarnations.]]
* LadyAndKnight: The Lady to Agni's Knight, though she eventually comes to hate the role. [[spoiler:Especially after regaining her memories, though for entirely different reasons.]]
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Agni deliberately prevents information that could stress Brilith from reaching her. She's somewhat aware of this. This takes a toll on her self-esteem, as it makes her consider herself a burden.
* LonelyRichKid: As the daughter of a Priest, she grew up mostly alone. Asha is her first (and only real) friend at first.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: After recovering her memories, she seems very willing to murder and will generally go for the kill even if there are other ways to defuse a situation. Case in point, [[spoiler:her attempt on Maruna's life.]] While it's true he ''has'' crimes to pay for, he could also be a very valuable ally - and situation isn't quite one where humanity has the luxury to choose. Yet, she went for the kill without even thinking about it first.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: When she thinks that Agni left because of her rudeness.
* TheNeedsOfTheMany: [[spoiler:Once she becomes the "true" her--in her eyes, one human life (Kaz's) is an acceptable price to pay if it means killing Maruna, a Rakshasha who's killed so many. In a less callous vein, she's willing to bury her grudge against Gandharva, accepting his existence as ultimately beneficial to the universe.]]
* NoSympathyForGrudgeholders: Averted. While she became quite jerkass(-ish) after remembering her past(s), it's hard to blame her for it. Brilith having a negative opinion of - or outright despising - gods and suras comes off as justified given all the shit they put her through. The closest this trope came of being played straight was with Gandharva, but it was ultimately averted as he refused to apologize when given the chance. Also helping is the fact that she's unwilling to let her grudges cloud her judgement when it matters most, and ultimately has humanity's best interests in mind.
* ObliviousToLove: Played with. She's aware that Agni treats her as special, but she doesn't know if it's because she's his summoner and he'd strike a romance with any of them, or if it's because of ''her'' specifically.
* OddFriendship: With Leez, post-TimeSkip. [[spoiler:Of course, this doesn't mean she's unwilling to suspect her after Leez comes back from Konchez in weird circunstances. However, she choses to trust the girl, as Agni does.]] Not so surprising, considering they were both heavily traumatized by Asha and have similarly low opinions on gods and nastikas.
* OneTrueLove: With Agni, albeit a very dysfunctional version. [[spoiler:She resents him enough that her final wish after every "awakening" is to have nothing to do with him again--but it's telling that the betrothal lasts only as long as they're the one the other loves most. In every moment of happiness in all of her lives, he was there, and she knows that when she dies, she'll inevitably meet him in another life and fall in love with him all over again.]]
* RapunzelHair: Before her TraumaticHaircut. Again post-TimeSkip, although shorter.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Asha's blue. Becomes the blue to Agni's red after [[spoiler:regaining her past memories.]]
* ReincarnationRomance: [[spoiler: With Agni; she states she fell in love with him in all of her past lives... but he never managed to hold onto her. She doesn't seem to be completely satisfied with this situation.]]
* TheResenter: [[spoiler:After regaining her memories, she admits that a part of her despises the humans around her--even the "old" Brilith's friends, Rana and Agwen--and wants to kill them all for replacing her kind.]]
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:Her mind can't handle the prolonged burden of countless past lives. Agni admits to her that she'll probably get worse as time goes on (though if anything, she's less crazy than he expected).]]
* SecretlyDying: As she tells Agni, she's glad no one realizes that her lifespan is coming to an end, since it means no one will worry over her.
* SilkHidingSteel: During ''The Night It Rained Fire''. She may be a relatively helpless human, but she'll show the sura that she won't cower. Sagara hates her all the more for it.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Her friends have tried to set her up with others, but in the end, she has eyes only for Agni. [[spoiler:Even when she hates him.]]
* SoleSurvivor: She's the last remaining member of the [[spoiler:original human race, although she didn't quite "survive" it in the normal sense. Rather, her soul was constantly reincarnated ever since.]]
* StepfordSmiler: In front of the people of Atera.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:After she recovers the memory of her past lives.]]
* TookALevelInJerkass: In conjunction with her level in badass.
* {{Tsundere}}: The sweet kind, though she only gets harsh when Agni's being particularly frustrating.
* TraumaticHaircut: Most of her hair gets burned off during the second attack on Atera.
* WatchingTroyBurn: Almost. During "The Night It Rained Fire", Sagara abducts her to ensure Agni won't interfere. She intentionally makes it so Brilith will have to watch as Atera is destroyed, but help arrives in time to stop it.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Gender-flipped, towards her mother Jibril Ajes.
* TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask: She plays the part of the graceful and gentle priestess, when in reality she's constantly tired and in pain due to keeping Agni summoned. She's even called a queen in-story.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: Due to summoning Agni.

* LackOfEmpathy: [[spoiler: Implied. According to her childhood friend Laila, Jibril was skilled in silent magic, which is known to numb the user's feelings; supposedly, Jibril's were so numb that she saw people and the background as the same. She seemed to have kept some feelings, however, as she stated to Laila that she wished her daughter would never learn silent magic.]]

* ParentalNeglect: Towards Brilith.
* PosthumousCharacter: She died around 10 years before the beginning of the story. [[spoiler: Chandra implies she was denied Heaven after dying.]]

The #1 ranked fighter and #6 ranked magician who is a guest lecturer at the Atera Magic Academy. She is Claude's younger sister.
----
* ActionGirl: Her Asvins-Asvins-Kubera attributes mean that she's primarily focused on self-buffing; she fights by boosting her own strength and regeneration with ''hoti asvins hoti kubera'', flies into close range with ''Bhavati Kubera'', then gets into brawls with enemies while sealing their own abilities using ''Bhavati Asvins''.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Is this to Teo Rakan due to beating her out for the title of best fighter in two consecutive tournaments.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:She died years ago, and Claude struck a deal to bring her back. She's aware of the side effect of Hoti Visnu and has made her peace with it.]]
* {{Fangirl}}: To Asha Rahiro; partially this seems to be because Airi feels that any magician (like herself) who lacks a triple attribute gets a lower rank regardless of their strength.
* HiddenDepths: Season 3 reveals that there's more to her than just Asha's {{Fangirl}} / Claude's little sister.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Lazy, prone to bickering, and somewhat petty, but absolutely believes that a magician's duty is to protect people even at the risk of their own lives, and is one of the few people in the series who ''doesn't'' believe the TheEndJustifiesTheMeans--she's horrified at the excuses people try to make for [[spoiler:Asha's serial murders]].
* KungFuWizard: Her fighting style, thanks to the nature of her attributes. She's able to best Teo in tournaments and even becomes head of the Atera Fighters' Guild post-{{Timeskip}}.
* SharedFamilyQuirks: Much like how Claude often shirked his duties as Priest, Airi hates her bureaucratic job as guild president and jumps at the chance for a field task.
* TheTrickster: Lures Clophe away from the city during the attack on Atera.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: InUniverse, had [[spoiler:Asha not deliberately isolated Leez]], it's acknowledged that Airi likely would've become her mentor given their similar fighting styles. Now, Airi and Leez can both only lament that the opportunity has passed.

The president of the Atera Magic Guild and a shameless fangirl for Asha. Riche's younger twin.
----
* AmbiguouslyBi: She has a pretty blatant crush on Asha, and several of her lines indicate that she doesn't care about someone's gender as long as they have an attractive face.
* CharacterDevelopment: Subverted. Post-{{Timeskip}}, she claims that she's matured and no longer cares about looks... and is immediately flustered by [[{{Bishonen}} Lutz]].
* CoattailRidingRelative: She got her job because of the influence of her rich and famous sister.
* {{Fangirl}}: For Asha. [[spoiler:Until she's convicted of murder]].
* GlorySeeker: Anytime she does something impressive, she always makes sure everybody knows about it.
* HiddenDepths:
** While she's as shallow and vain as she typically acts, she's surprisingly perceptive and intelligent. She was actually the first person to figure out Brilith summoned Agni, and she's implied to recognize [[spoiler:Ran's DangerousForbiddenTechnique]].
** When Chandra forms a list of people who'd be willing to sacrifice themselves for the world--which he can confirm through insight--''Ruche'' is on that list, despite her seemingly cowardly personality. (That, or she really has grown since Season 1.)
* JerkassHasAPoint: She can be pretty bitchy, but she makes a good case as to why [[spoiler:Lorraine should be detained as a suspect in Asha's murder]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: Due to being a Quarter, she only looks about 17.
* ThemeTwinNaming: Ruche and Riche Seiran.

!!Ran Sairofe
!!!Quarter, Varuna-Varuna-Varuna
[[quoteright:300:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kubera_ran2.png]]

A Quarter who joined the party to help navigate the Water Channel, he stuck around longer than expected. He's surprisingly strong, even able to match Asha in many ways, but consistently fails the university exit exams because he is hopeless with magic calculations. Luckily for him, he doesn't need calculations for magic.
----
* ActionDad: In Season 3, where he's the father to four children. His twin sons like simultaneously boasting about his skills while also insulting his poor control over his magic.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards Leez. He calls out Asha on her poor treatment of her and, after learning that Leez's village was destroyed by a superior sura, offers to adopt her into his family. He also extends what he can of this towards Yuta, even though he's mostly in the dark about a lot of Yuta's problems. But, he will help out when he can about emotions and growing up, and would really try to with the things he couldn't ever manage to help with. Yuta knows and appreciates this (hence keeping him in the dark about the really scary-dangerous stuff that would get Ran very dead very quickly).
* BigBrotherWorship: Downplayed. He considers his brother the greatest magician in the world, but he's not blind to his faults.
* BookDumb: His ability to use magic without requiring calculations has caused him to neglect some of his studies, though some of this just comes from comparison to Asha's CharlesAtlasSuperpower levels of magical knowledge.
* ButtMonkey: Serves as this upon joining the party. Him being a "relatively" normal (at least within the context of sharing the same space as a mysterious genius magician, a girl with a god's Name, and a sura) means that he, along with Leez, winds up providing much of the humor in scenes where the four are involved, often at his own expense.
* ButterFace: Like Leez, Ran is stated to be drawn more attractive than he actually is.
* CastFromLifespan: His DangerousForbiddenTechnique is apparently this.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: He and Rana eventually get engaged and going through wedding preparations by the end of Season 2.
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: [[spoiler:Whatever he used in his magic exams, it is this; Rana chews him out for using it, saying that using it could kill him, and his scores are almost declared invalid due to there being no precedent for it.]]
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Leez didn't even realize he was a magician at first and just thought he was... the boatman...?
* EntertaininglyWrong: ''All the time''.
* FacialMarkings: [[spoiler:Gains these when using his DangerousForbiddenTechnique.]]
* {{Fanboy}}: For [[spoiler:Rao Leez.]]
* HiddenDepths: When he first appears, he acts like a village idiot and is an utter ButtMonkey. Over time, he's shown to be [[SmarterThanYouLook brighter than he usually acts]], sensitive, surprisingly mature at times, and struggling with childhood trauma.
* TheIllegible: His handwriting is horrible. He actually has to type out his letter to Rana to so she can actually read it.
* KungFuWizard: Makes AA rank, and has SuperStrength on top of it.
* LonelyRichKid: Especially after Lutz left and [[spoiler:his mother tried to kill him during the Cataclysm.]]
* LockedOutOfTheLoop:
** He consistently knows less of what's really going on than the rest of the main cast (except, possibly, Leez), though it's getting a bit better; initially he knew next to nothing about Asha (not even her gender), thought Yuta was human, and thought Leez was an ordinary girl. Even now, while both Leez and Yuta seem to have at least a general understanding that something bigger is going on, he's completely ignorant.
** As it turns out, he hasn't exactly been given an accurate retelling of what happened to his mother...
* LoveAtFirstSight: He was attracted to Rana from the moment he first saw her. His feelings developed into actual love over the years.
* MadeOfIron: A minor RunningGag in the water channel is pieces of rubble breaking on his head. He doesn't really seem to notice.
* MayflyDecemberRomance: What he is afraid will happen between him and Rana. She's pure human, but he's a Quarter, so he ages at half normal rate. His own mother gave him a rather heartless lesson on the subject, since she was already going through the same thing with his father.
* NiceGuy: While it was less pronounced at first due to his dislike of Asha, Ran has a strong sense of justice and is doesn't need a reason to help others.
** When Leez runs off to try to save Yuta, he goes after her despite the incredible danger. He had no obligation to help her, he could have left without repercussions. He just cares too much about others to leave them behind.
** He seems to be this in comparison to most of the other human characters. After the incident where [[spoiler:Yuta loses control and eats Leez's face]], Ran is the only one concerned about Leez.
* ObliviousToLove: Despite his feelings for Rana, he has no idea that she loves him back. [[spoiler:This changes once she proposes]].
* OnlySaneMan: While he does have some issues, they are far more manageable than the other [[DysfunctionJunction members of the party]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: Because he's a Quarter, he looks 18 despite being 38.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: As shown by the Test of the Sword and his eventual AA rank, Ran is actually rather incredible by human standards. He has the rare ability to cast by sheer instinct, he's unusually strong, and incredibly durable. He's just surrounded by people (and beings) that are even more amazing.
* PapaWolf: When he sees his sons about to be attacked by a sura, he drops everything and teleports over to fight it off.
* PatientChildhoodLoveInterest: To Rana.
* PluckyComicRelief: He has his serious moments, but he's typically one of the goofier members of the cast and, when numerous characters TookALevelInCynic, one of the only people to remain mostly unchanged by the time of Season 3.
* ShipperOnDeck: He gives Yuta advice on his relationship with Leez, encourages him to tell her how he feels, and says that he'll support him.
* SuperStrength: Ran is stronger than the average ''Half'' even those from the same clan, which is known for its physical strength.
* UnlimitedWardrobe: Downplayed and Justified. He changes outfits frequently, but he has a preferred style and is filthy rich.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Has a phobia of Halfs, thanks to his childhood's trauma when his mother was driven insane by her sura blood and tried to kill him.

Childhood friend of Ran and a teacher at the Mistyshore university.
----
* ChildhoodFriends: With Ran.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: She proposed!
* ChildProdigy: Entered the academy at the age of 10.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Briefly, when [[spoiler:she mistakes Ran's BigBrotherInstinct for Leez as him having fallen in love with her.]] It's downplayed, too, in that [[spoiler:she's more upset with him for being ObliviousToLove for ''18 years'' than anything.]]
* {{Housewife}}: She was this for most of the {{Timeskip}}. However, in the present, she admits she's starting to resent their (unexpected) fourth child who's significantly younger than the others and preventing her from returning to work. It's why she desperately wants Ran to become Priest, as it'd allow his uncle to retire and therefore look after the kids instead.

!!!Quarter, Birth Attributes: Nil-Nil-Nil
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/teo_rakan_7449.jpg]]

The current Priestess of Chaos, and in fact the only Chaos candidate in the city, as well as the head of the Kalibloom fighter's guild.
----
* ActionGirl: She's more of a fighter than a magician. She gained an A+ magician's license (the second-highest one possible, excluding Asha's unique A++ rank) despite being ''all but incapable of using magic'' -- using nothing but brute strength and skill with a sword.
* ActionMom: Considering she's a badass with a sword and she's Elwin's mom, she definitely qualifies. She can even take on human-form rakshasa and hold her ground solely on her skill as a fighter.
* AlwaysSecondBest: Has been the runner-up to Airi Yui in two consecutive fighter's tournaments. She clearly chafes at this.
* BeneathTheMask: In front of [[spoiler:Gandharva]] and others, she's calm and cool. Inside her head, she's flustered by the hot guy she's letting stay in her house and worried about his secretive behavior.
* BirdsOfAFeather: With [[spoiler:Gandharva]]. They both were separated from family members and know that they are likely dead, but want to believe that they're alive anyway.
* CameBackWrong: [[spoiler:When Teo was resurrected, it was not with her original soul, meaning that philosophical and metaphysical questions of identity aside, the Teo Rakan who came back is technically a different person inhabiting the same body and most of its memories.]]
* ChildhoodFriends: With Airi. [[spoiler:Except no one was aware of this, leading to certain misunderstandings and misguided contempt on Teo's part.]]
* FacialMarkings: She has red marks under her eyes. They are easily mistaken for makeup, but are in fact a sign of her sura heritage.
* GeniusBruiser: She may be a poor magician due to her automatic 50% fail rate (due to her triple-Null birth attributes), but she still got an A+ ranking. All ranking tests have a speed calculations portion.
* HasAType: Comments at one point that [[spoiler:Gandharva's human guise]] is her type.
* HiddenDepths: [[spoiler:Is somehow capable of using silent Chaos magic. This is notable given that one, Kali disappeared a long time ago, leaving the Chaos attribute nil, and two, those who can use silent magic tend to be rather ruthless.]]
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler:Courtesy of being resurrected by Asha's Hoti Visnu, she had her time rewound back to before the beginning of Season II, judging by her being unaware of ever meeting Gandharva.]]
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: [[spoiler:She doesn't know the truth behind Airi's revival, as no one even knew they were friends and therefore they didn't think to tell her.]]
* LoopholeAbuse: She gained an A+ magician's license, despite being mostly unable to use magic, because there ain't no rule that says you have to use magic on the tests -- she overcame the tests that are meant to be solved with magic using ''brute strength''.
* MagicKnight: Of the use spells (i.e. Hoti Kubera) to augment physical abilities while fighting with weapons variety.
* MagicallyIneptFighter: Played with. She is described as having little magical skill outside of Hoti Kubera (likely due in large part to her attributes), but makes up for it by being highly skilled in the use of transcendentals [[spoiler:and, as it turns out, silent Chaos magic]].
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: She's the president of Kalibloom's Fighters' Guild who hates dresses and can't even peel apples, while [[spoiler:Gandharva is a {{Bishonen}} who can cook despite not even needing to ''eat'' and presents himself as a helpless human with no interest in combat]].
* OhCrap: She has a quiet one when she spots [[spoiler:Gandharva's sura form]] in the Lake of Reflection and realizes her [[spoiler:house-guest is a sura]].
--> '''Teo:''' (thinking) Stay calm. Don't tremble. I saw nothing.
* OnlyMostlyDead: [[spoiler:Due to her body being preserved when Gandharva [[HumanPopsicle froze it in ice made from his body]], it was possible for Asha to resurrect her using Hoti Visnu.]]
** [[spoiler:On the other hand, it is later revealed that Hoti Visnu merely resurrects the body, but the soul inhabiting it is an entirely different one.]]
* PowerHair: She's cut her flowing hair down to a short bob between seasons two and three.
* TookALevelInCynic: After the events of Season Two, she's no longer so willing to trust in strangers. [[spoiler:She only sponsors "Runa" and his "brother" because she has Maruna pegged as a NobleDemon and wants to determine his objective.]]
** [[spoiler:Somewhat subverted though when it is revealed that the soul that identifies itself as 'Teo Rakan' after her death in Season Two is not the same soul as the original.]]
* TragicDream: [[spoiler:Develops a crush on Gandharva that remains even after figuring out who he is. [[LampshadeHanging She even goes as far as to comment on her "hopeless dreams" of him allying himself with her]], among other implied things, during her LastStand against Sagara's troops. What makes it worse is that Gandharva decided he didn't want her to die after all, just before Sagara [[KickTheDog finishes Teo off right in front of him]].]]

* OnlySaneMan: One of the only priests who'd rather not give up his humanity for silent magic.

[[quoteright:238:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/37f2d3be08217a96c622e5ea03b9048c.png]]

The current Priest of Death and Airi's older brother.
----
* AllForNothing: [[spoiler:The reason behind most of his actions in the second volume is to protect Laila. Immediately after he's managed to successfully manipulate Asha into murdering another Kubera name-holder in Laila's place, Laila sacrifices her lifespan anyway to summon Chandra, the God of Darkness.]]
* AmbiguouslyEvil: Although he justifies his actions by claiming that he serves TheNeedsOfTheMany, some of what he's done (like [[spoiler:'coincidentally' ensuring the defenses on God Kubera's artifacts were down right before Sura attacked to steal them]]) makes it unclear what side he's really on. The fact that he's introduced by [[spoiler:nearly killing Leez in an attempt to win an argument with Asha]] doesn't help.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: He's a fairly goofy guy and not all of it is a farce. Still good enough to be the Priest of Death, however.
* BigBrotherInstinct: [[spoiler:Loves Airi enough that he made a DealWithTheDevil for her sake.]]
* BodySurf: What seems to be the use of ''Bhavati Yama'', a spell he's quite skilled at using.
* DealWithTheDevil: [[spoiler:Well, with a god, actually,]] [[spoiler:implied to be Brahma.]] [[spoiler:In exchange for reviving his older sister, dead five years prior, he was given a lifespan of 200 years, but was made to become said god's pawn. He seems to be currently executing it's plans. Said deal was recently called off, as the god deemed him not useful anymore.]]
* TheNeedsOfTheMany: He is willing to ignore Asha's murders because he believes humanity needs her on their side, and is even willing to go so far as to suggest [[spoiler:offering Leez as a 'sacrifice' to Yuta, allowing him to savage her repeatedly because the Golden Knight will simply heal her and because, again, humanity needs Yuta on its side.]] However, it's unclear whether he's being entirely honest about his actual goals...
* ObfuscatingStupidity: He acts like a goofy layabout, but he actually has a much better idea of what's really going on than almost anyone else, and most of his actions have a deeper purpose behind them. For example, his 'lazing about' in Kalibloom was (according to him) actually because he was frantically trying to get Yuta to stay on humanity's side. In Season 3, Chandra amusingly lampshades it, noting that [[spoiler:he used to be someone pretending to be an idiot, but now that he lost his DealWithTheDevil and memories associated with it, he's just an actual idiot now]].
* PetTheDog:
** He sincerely cares about Laila, with Saha even referring to this as his one redeeming quality.
** Likewise, he's on good terms with Airi, whom he corresponds with regularly.
* PluckyComicRelief: Chandra refers to him as this after he [[spoiler:loses his DealWithTheDevil]], citing that the cheerless temple could use an idiot like him (as Claude chases after him and Laila in smiley face pajamas...).
* UsedToBeASweetKid: By Laila's accounts, he wasn't always a douche.

The current Priest of Darkness. A hardworking woman who hides her face behind a mask.
----
* BeautyMark: She has one under her left eye.
* BeneathTheMask: Her exasperation with Chandra isn't for show. [[spoiler:Compared to Brilith's (former) {{Tsundere}} attitude towards Agni, Laila genuinely dislikes her god and displays the bare minimum of tolerance just to appease him.]]
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Nobody seems to care at all about her ridiculous mask, presumably because (as the Priest of Darkness) she's powerful enough to do whatever she wants.
* ChildhoodFriends: With
Kaz Lehn, Haas Lehn); ''Atera'' (Brilith Ruin, Jibril Ajes, Brilith's mother. They are shown together at age 12 (being a quarter, Laila at the time looked only six). She also worries about Brilith's safety and health due to this friendship.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Is the Priest of Darkness, but far from evil.
* DreamWalker: Darkness silent magic is called dream tracking; she's quite skilled at it. [[spoiler:She uses it several times to wake Brilith up from her nightmares.]]
* GivenNameReveal: [[spoiler:Her real name is Kubera]].
* {{Gonk}}: Most of the time she wears a ridiculously ugly green mask that makes her look like some sort of weird monster. Since it covers her entire head, it's not even obvious at first that it's not her real face.
* KungFuWizard: Along with being a skilled magician, she's good enough in physical combat to give Teo a run for her money, even if Teo held back due to Chandra's presence.
* MeaningfulName: "Laila" means "night" in various languages.
* MysteriousBacker: She created the A++ rank for Asha and gave her permission to use the Human Search System, despite not seeming to like her much.
* NoHeroToHisValet: She acts as she pleases around Chandra since, as his summoner, she knows she can get away with it. She's more respectful to Agni, namely because he's actually a decent person.
* SadisticChoice: [[spoiler:She's made to choose between Claude's life or the info he holds, as the other will be lost.]] The being behind it tells her that they're pleased with her choice, and to not let go of that part of her.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Aloof and ruthlessly logical, but also kind enough to look out for Brilith and [[spoiler:choose Claude's life over potentially valuable info]], showing that silent magic hasn't completely robbed her of her humanity.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Claude claims she was once the most compassionate person he knew, compared to her hardened self now.
* WhiteHairedPrettyGirl: She's implied to be extremely beautiful under her mask; the brief glimpses of parts of her face support this.
* YouCantFightFate: [[spoiler:Chandra warned her of her impending death when she was a child, telling her to hide her identity and to summon him if she found her fate approaching despite her efforts. She seemingly avoids death when Saha is killed instead, but then Season 3 reveals that she's still set to die at this rate.]] She does have a fighting chance, but it's certainly not coming to her easily.

Ran's older brother, Eloth's Creation Priest, and president of the Creation brand Artram.
-----
* TheAce: Handsome, the Priest of Creation, talented enough to have been an AA if he'd tried, president of a company, and by Season 3, the richest person in the world according to Ran.
* AlmightyJanitor: He deliberately slacked off on his magic exams, so his rank is much lower than his actual ability. According to Tilda, he could have been an AA.
* AloofBigBrother: To Ran. It wasn't like this in the past, but he became distant after becoming the priest of creation.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: To Ran. Lutz is more successful, respected, and (as Ran whines to Agwen) better looking. That said, Ran doesn't genuinely resent him for it, likely because of [[PromotionToParent everything Lutz has done for him]] and because he knows their father pressured him into this path, when Lutz himself had no interest in prestige.
* BadassInANiceSuit: Is almost always seen in a black suit.
* BarrierMaiden: A male example. He is the current Priest of Creation and responsible for maintaining the barrier.
* BenevolentBoss: In a bonus chapter, he's shown working as a waiter to experience the conditions his employees do.
* BigBrotherInstinct: He responded so quickly to [[spoiler:Teo's request for assistance]] because Ran's in Kalibloom.
* {{Bishonen}}: The author describes him as the most handsome male character. According to Ran he has fangirls.
* ChickMagnet: One of the most eligible bachelors around. Agwen tried to set [[SingleTargetSexuality Brilith]] up with him, and the fact she wasn't even into ''him'' was the sure sign that something was up with Brilith's love life.
* {{Dismotivation}}: He slacked off on his magic exams because he didn't want to become the Priest of Creation and instead wanted to stay with his brother. Unfortunately,
Babo Kim, Airi Yui, Lorraine skipped out and he has too great a sense of responsibility to do the same.
* KungFuWizard: In addition being the priest of Creation, it is mentioned that he once reached the later stages of a previous fighter's tournament.
* TheNeedsOfTheMany: [[spoiler:He's willing to overlook Asha's serial murder and defend her in a trial. His argument is that the lives that she's saved and can save in the future far outnumber the people she's killed.]]
* NotSoAboveItAll: Generally mature and sophisticated, but there are moments that remind you that he's related to Ran (around whom this side especially comes out).
* OlderThanTheyLook: As a Quarter. He's not above using it to poke fun at Lorraine, calling her old when he's actually her elder (but appeared 14 at the time to her 20).
* PragmaticHero: Good at heart--Asha even describes him (and Ran) as someone who walks the path of light despite his DarkAndTroubledPast. However, he's willing to put TheNeedsOfTheMany over morality and can veer into being TheSpock at times, albeit with more remorse than the likes of Claude.
* PromotedToParent: Before he left for school, he was one for Ran since their parents were constantly working. However, that aspect of their relationship has faded since then.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: A Priest and company president who doesn't mind using his position(s) to help the main characters out (the family connection doesn't hurt, but he's careful not to spoil Ran either).
* TheScapegoat: He killed his and Ran's mother in order to protect Ran, which Ran struggles to fully empathize with. Of course, by the time this is revealed, the reader can guess what ''really'' happened.
* TooCleverByHalf: A light-hearted example. Lutz is so prodigal (or extremely (un)lucky) that he failed at failing his magic exams! Case in point, despite guessing his way through the speed calculations and purposely screwing up the combat aspect, he got a higher rank than Brilith, the Priest of Fire who gave the exams everything she had.
* WhatTheHellHero: In the past, he called out Lorraine for leading [[DoggedNiceGuy Saha]] on when she had no intention of marrying him.

[[folder:Saha On]]
!!Saha On
!!!Quarter, Birth Attributes: Surya-Surya-Surya
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/saha_1891.jpg]]

The top-ranked magician on Willarv, as well as the Priest of Light and president of the Eloth Magic Guild. Lorraine's fiance. He demanded Asha's death constantly throughout her trial for 29 cases of homicide by magical accident, and argued fiercely (but unsuccessfully) for the passage of a Stolen Goods Law, which would have forced people to return stolen magical artifacts.
----
* TheAce: Genius magician with light powers and high authority that Asha herself described as a "natural born hero".
* BigGood: As the highest-ranking magician in the world, he's the one who takes charge when Willarv faces genuinely serious threats.
* {{Bishonen}}: He once won a beauty contest with no makeup while in his street clothes, and as a Quarter, he [[OlderThanTheyLook ages slowly]], giving him a young pretty-boy appearance.
* TheChainsOfCommanding: As he tells Lorraine, the hallmark of a leader is being able to put aside their emotions to do their duty--no matter how much it might pain him.
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler:His real purpose in having Asha's murder trial wasn't to get the death penalty for her, it was to gather all of the top magicians in one place so he can take them to fight in Rindhallow.]]
* DoggedNiceGuy: To Lorraine. He's been in love with her for years, but is very understanding and tells her to do as she likes, regardless of her family pressuring her to marry him.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: He looks so feminine that his fiancee pushed him to enter a beauty contest, which he won with no makeup while in his street clothes.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: The first time he officially appears, he receives a report of Sura attacking a town several hundred miles away... which he detects and blasts into oblivion without leaving his seat at the Mage's guild.
** His second chapter has him breaking into tears at the realization that one of the other magicians is complicit in Asha's murders, establishing both his sense of justice and his sensitive nature. And before both of these, our first {{Foreshadowing}} about him shows his silhouette arguing fiercely for the Stolen Goods Law (which would mostly be used against magicians like him) while the other magicians are clearly bored and disinterested.
* {{Foil}}: To Asha. They're two of the most powerful magicians in the world, but Saha uses his power for the greater good, while Asha uses it for personal gain. Saha is a stereotypically feminine man, whereas Asha is a stereotypically masculine woman. The author even describes him as the most beautiful man in the world, in contrast to Asha, the most handsome woman. [[spoiler:He also received an oracle about the god Kubera's impending demise, but both the gods who gave them the oracle and the contents of said oracle were likely very different.]]
* GivenNameReveal: [[spoiler:He's Eloth's Kubera.]]
* GoodIsNotSoft: Despite his soft and caring nature, he is utterly devoted to law and justice, and refuses to back down when he feels that someone is genuinely guilty.
* GoodIsNotDumb: He puts a lot more thought into his actions than it seems at first; in particular, [[spoiler:his zealous prosecution of Asha is actually intended to gather as many high-ranked magicians as possible in the Aeroplateau so he can transport them all to Rindhallow and make them fight in humanity's defense.]]
* InTouchWithHisFeminineSide: Beyond his feminine {{Bishonen}} appearance, he has a soft, sensitive personality... [[GoodIsNotSoft most of the time]].
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: He encourages Lorraine to live her own life, saying that he'll wait for her as long as it takes.
* IWillWaitForYou: He made a promise to Lorraine that he'd wait for her to be ready, no matter how long it took. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, he ended up dying first.]]
%%* KilledOffForReal
* LightEmUp: As the Priest of Light, he naturally has a triple Light attribute and attacks by blasting things with massive columns of light.
* LightIsGood: He's both the Priest of Light and one of the most straightforwardly heroic characters in the series.
* NiceGuy: So long as you're not [[spoiler:[[SerialKiller Asha]]]], he's kind, accommodating, and understanding. If you are [[spoiler:Asha]], see GoodIsNotSoft.
* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler:He gets killed relatively soon after being introduced in order to show just how far Asha is willing to go for her goals.]]
* WorldsStrongestMan: Officially, he is the most powerful magician on Willarv, although Asha may actually be more powerful.
* YouHaveWaitedLongEnough: His family has tried to invoke this on him by setting him up with other candidates (e.g. Rana), but he firmly put an end to it.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler:His constant exhaustion hinted that even if he hadn't died, his life was coming to an end due to numerous attempts at summoning Surya.]]

The Priestess of Wind in Aeroplateau, and an old acquaintance of Asha.

----
* AnArmAndALeg: She has prosthetic legs.
* BirdsOfAFeather: With Leez. They both [[spoiler:suffered the loss of their home and loved ones, but tried to smile though it in fear that the only other people they knew would leave them if they didn't]].
* EarlyBirdCameo: She makes a brief appearance in chapter 6 during Brilith's exposition about magic, but doesn't actually show up in the storyline until over ''200 chapters later''.
* ChildProdigy: She was one before the destruction of Carte; her ability has dropped considerably since then, but her wind magic is still unparalleled.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: She's a [[spoiler:survivor from Carte]].
* {{Foil}}: To Asha.
** Both are survivors from Carte [[spoiler:who were rescued by Rao Leez.]]
** Mirha was offered [[DealWithTheDevil Visnu's deal]], but rejected it.
** Both are powerful magicians whose magical ability was affected during Carte's destruction. Mirha's abilities were hampered, while Asha [[spoiler:gained them.]]
** Both have relationships with Leez that are affected by [[spoiler:their past with her father]].
*** Mirha is kind and supportive towards Leez. She empathizes with her situation, and spends time with her.
*** Asha is very cold towards Leez. She treats her as an inconvenience, and doesn't consider her suffering comparable to her own.
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: Her room is full of them.
* KingIncognito: She wears sunglasses, a hat, and a heavy jacket when she goes out so people don't recognize her.
* OlderThanTheyLook: She's a Quarter, so she only looks to be half her actual age.
* PaperThinDisguise: The fake name she gives Leez is "Mir." However, she intended it to be temporary from the start as she wanted to get to know Leez without any preconceptions staining the girl's behavior.
* StepfordSmiler: When she was young, she acted a lot like Leez did, smiling so she wouldn't be left alone.
* TeenIdol: Gives off this impression, compared to the other Priests. Apparently, she has rather zealous fans, much to her exasperation.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: In contrast to her yellow eyes. The difference is what makes Leez realize she's a Quarter.

An incredibly powerful magician, quite likely the most powerful one on the planet (though she's ranked 5th since she wasn't allowed to take the last part of the test). She found Leez shortly after her village was destroyed, and took her under her wing once she heard her name. Her goal is also revenge; on whom and for what, exactly, is still unknown.
----
* TheAce: What everybody in Willarv sees her as. With cause. She even has a fanclub.
* AlmightyJanitor: Her magician ranking is already quite high (5th), but the only reason she's not first is due to a technicality. Even the four mages above her are aware that Asha is more powerful than they are.
* AnArmAndALeg: She's very strongly implied to be missing her right arm, but she wears big bulky clothing to hide it.
* {{Bifauxnen}}: To the point that most people get pulled up short when they realise she's actually wearing a skirt. Which she actually does to point out that she's a she.
* BigBadWannabe: Very downplayed in the sense that Asha still presents a very credible threat, but... her character has shades of this. She believes herself to be Visnu's great envoy, the one all his plans were directed to, and the greatest [[TheChessmaster chessmaster]] on the board. The climax of season two completely disabuses her of this notion. [[spoiler:She was implied to be aiming the whole time to capture Ananta's power for her own the moment Sagara ressurrected him. So, she walks into Sagara's lair with the hopes of doing this - and Sagara laughs at her face. It's made then ''very clear'' that a mere human would never be even ''capable'' of this, so big is Ananta's power. She's quick to point to her that the whole time Asha was little more than a pawn, and that her Kubera-killing contributed to Sagara's own plans, not hers. She's so hopelessly outmatched that Sagara doesn't even bother with trying to kill her - which ends up being a mistake, fair enough, as Asha is able to cast ''Hoti Visnu''. However, even this ace in the whole of hers looks more like a child throwing a tantrum than anything else, and doesn't even do that much harm in the end. Yes, Sagara and her allies ended up disappearing for seven years, but Asha herself suffered the same, and now Sagara is back, ready to start everything all over again. All in all, she didn't suffer much damage as much as a setback. Not to mention Lorraine, who was also affected, and returned with the sole goal of avenging Saha. Plus, there is the fact that all of those that were affected by the spell are implied to have been given access to knowledge regarding the future, which was Asha's main strength.]] So yes, it's undeniable how much influence Asha has on the story overall, but it's not nearly as much as she believes. Off course, Currygom being Currygom, this could still be completely turned on its head.
* BrokenAce: What she sees herself as... with more cause. She was broken before she reached Acehood. In fact, it caused her to work hard to gain it.
* TheBully: A textbook definition in regards to Leez. Asha is ''incredibly'' abusive of the poor girl, much of which can only be accomplish due to the fact that Leez is extremely dependent on her.
* ChildProdigy: Subverted. [[spoiler:While she was incredibly intelligent as a child, she had very low divine affinity and thus little magical power. According to Saha, one can train to increase their divine affinity, but the results are usually negligible. Asha, however, managed to increase hers from next to none to over ''ten thousand''.]]
* ComesGreatInsanity: She rapidly deteriorates after [[spoiler:killing Saha and taking his power]]. Yuta, observes that her mind is falling apart and states that a human wasn't meant to hold such power. The better example of it may be the tantrum (ther's no other word for it, really) she threw when Yuta revealed [[spoiler:he was only helping her because he thought it would be the best for Leez]].
* CoolBigSis: Averted in every possible way in regards to Leez. Asha goes out of her way to be the exact opposite of this.
* CynicalMentor: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed.]] She verbally abuses Leez and has no qualms against hurting her to further her goals. [[spoiler:This makes more sense when it's revealed that her original intention in going to Leez's village was to kill her, and that she initially only protected Leez because she knew her father. As of the ''Your Justice And Mine'' arc, she's entered full blown EvilMentor territory]].
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: [[spoiler:She can use Hoti Visnu to turn back time for objects or people, but every time she does so, it eats away at her existence.]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Her entire planet was destroyed. [[spoiler:She's a SerialKiller. One of her victims was Leez's father.]]
* DarkHorseVictory: A comment from Maruna suggests Asha is siding with neither Sura nor humans, and is in fact aiming for this.
* DeadpanSnarker: Especially towards Ran.
* DealWithTheDevil: [[spoiler:She made some kind of deal with Visnu that allows her to use Hoti Visnu, which should be impossible after Visnu's disappearance.]]
* DeceptiveDisciple: To Lorraine
* DidntSeeThatComing: She's the "that" that Sagara didn't notice beforehand. As a human mage, she's so unbelievably outclassed in her regards to her sura opponents that Sagara, a nastika, didn't even bother with trying to stop her. And she's not wrong: in terms of power, compared to others in the setting, Asha is nothing. But the whole thing about ''Hoti Visnu'' does not revolve around power, does it?
* DissonantSerenity: At first, at least. Asha hardly ever changes her expression no matter what's going on around her - but, as the story progresses, this is increasingly subverted. She throws this completely out of the window close to Season Two's ending, when she learns that Yuta was only helping her because he thought it would be the best for Leez - she ''flips out completely'', going as far as scream out loud. How many times before that moment did Asha snapped like that?
* [[spoiler: DomesticAbuser: While not in a romantic relationship with Leez, many of their later scenes together are eerily similar to a real life example of this. Asha leaves Leez completely isolated from others under pretext of helping her, constantly destroys her confidence by accusing of her being useless and accuses her of PlayingTheVictimCard when as it becomes more and more evident how awfully she’s behaving. The situation eventually degenerates to the point Leez throws herself off a cliff multiple times trying to become a better fighter in order to try and get Asha’s respect. Asha’s responds by remarking on how lucky Leez has it because her bracelet allows her to learn a skill so easily. She ends up trying to murder Leez. Twice.]]
* EpicFail: She was set to this, at least according to Sagara. Interestingly, everything went according to her plan, except the climax: when she [[spoiler: went to Sagara's lair with the implied goal of stealing Ananta's power, the nastika made it very clear to her that she would never be able to do this. So, basically, Asha failure was so big that stopped her from ''trying'']].
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Is the subject of a number of female crushes.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: She went from a little girl [[spoiler:with a divine affinity of less than 100]], to one of, if not ''the'' strongest magician on Willarv [[spoiler:and an infamous SerialKiller]].
* FreudianExcuseIsNoExcuse:[[spoiler: She made a DealWithTheDevil with Vishnu as a child and is in the middle of fulfilling it. She knows she still needs to complete the final "clauses" of her bargain, which at the very least means killing Sasha Oh and his fiancé: her longterm mentor Lorraine. Who does she take her frustrations out on? Leez, because her psychological state was too fragile to for her to properly defend herself.]]
* GiverOfLameNames: When she tried to come up with a name for Yuta, she came up with three names; Blacky, Whitey, and Spotty. It's her only shown attempt at naming something.
* GreenEyedMonster: Towards Leez for a variety of reasons.
* GoodAngelBadAngel: [[spoiler:Rao was the good one, encouraging her to 'live for the living' and supporting her in hopes that she would redeem herself in the future. Claude is the bad one, encouraging her to 'discard' Leez and even attempting to kill Leez for her.]]
* ImportantHaircut: [[InvokedTrope Invoked.]] [[spoiler:She cuts her hair with magic to test her resolve. If she has any doubts, she has the chance to subconsciously miscalculate and [[NightmareFuel slit her own throat]]. She's been doing this since she was ''ten''.]]
* InnocenceLost: The "Asha" arc, which focuses on her past, showcases how this happened to her. At first, no matter how smart or talented she was, Asha was still just another little girl. The whole Carte debacle - and all the shit she went through related to it - destroyed that child.
* IntelligenceEqualsIsolation: When she was at Eloth's university, she was ostracized because of her incredible intellect and power. Now she has a fanclub, but the members usually just admire her power and fame without really knowing her. She also has problems understanding the perspective of the average person, since she often takes her own knowledge for granted.
** However, this is at least partially self-inflicted. Many other brilliant magicians have strong relationships with friends and family, including Claude.
* ItRunsInTheFamily: According to her mother, Asha inherited her personality from her father. Lilith worried that it could go beyond simply that, as her father died young - [[spoiler:and she was right in worrying, as the ''Hoti Yama'' spell showed that Asha was never going to live a long life]].
* ItsAllAboutMe: She doesn't care who or how many she kills to gain power. She even says something similar to it when being frank with Leez: unless she comes out as the "victor", nothing matters.
* KickTheDog: Asha is ''made'' of these. [[spoiler:Frequent after reviving Teo. Whereas she was at least cordial to Leez previously, she kicks her belittling, abusive behavior up a notch and rarely misses a chance to hurt Leez emotionally or physically.]]
** [[spoiler:She frequently resurrected her victims in order to test out her spells on them. While the spell she used resurrects them with a different soul (usually that of a low level Asura), her victims had no idea they weren't human.]]
** Then she [[spoiler:reveals that all her past PetTheDog moments were her thinking of Rao. She was never thinking of Leez herself, just the girl's father. Leez dislikes people treating her differently because of her father.]]
** However, she was also on the receiving end of this once. [[spoiler:Visnu could have healed her arm, but never did it, and simply as a punishment for a relatively small transgression. Honestly, almost everything in regard to her relationship with Visnu has some element of Asha suffering from this]].
* LadyLooksLikeADude: To the consternation of Brilith and Ran.
* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Father, Like Daughter]]: Much to her mother's worry.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: To Brilith. When hovering between life and death, the only reason she has to come back is because she can't let Asha be alone.
* MysteriousBacker: For Leez. So far, Asha has been firmly on Leez's side, but she can be very abusive and it's clear she still has her own agenda going that may or may not be in Leez's best interest. [[spoiler:Turns out her ultimate goal is to acquire the power of Ananta.]]
* MysteriousPast: Her dealings with Rao, Visnu, and Kubera, and her experiences on Carte are still unclear.
* NotSoStoic: Whenever certain details about her past come up, she expresses surprising emotion. In the present day, she even appears [[spoiler:distraught after attacking Leez while the latter was trapped in an [[EscapePod escape pod]] that was about to launch.]]
** It's also PlayedForLaughs during a brief travel montage when Asha witnesses Leez eating with a pair of chopsticks in each hand and is completely shocked.
* PetTheDog: Every once in a while, she'll do something nice for Leez. [[spoiler:This comes to an abrupt end in Season 2. See KickTheDog]].
** She's also very respectful to Yuta, whom she treats as more of an equal. [[spoiler:Or so he thought. The impression he has by hearing her through insight was that even this was solely done out of a desire to use him]].
* PowerAtAPrice: She can use ''[[spoiler:Hoti Visnu]]'', sacrificing [[spoiler:her existence]] little by little with each use. To get the ability in the first place, she sacrificed [[spoiler:what she would come to consider most precious, which is implied to have been Rao, whom she hadn't met yet]].
* RankInflation: Despite getting the best scores in history on her magic exams, she wasn't allowed to take the last test (compatibility with a barrier stone) because she doesn't have a triple attribute, meaning it would be very dangerous. Normally, the highest rank for someone who can't take that exam is A+, with AA being the rank above it. Her examiner invented the A++ rank on the spot as a mark of her achievement. During the siege on Atera, she proves that she can use a barrier stone anyway (by changing the attribute of the barrier to match her attributes, something assumed to be impossible). The arc is named "AAA," implying ''that'' is the rank she deserves.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Leez's red. Blue again to Ran's red.
* {{Revenge}}: Her goal. [[spoiler:It's a stepping stone.]]
* SanitySlippage:[[spoiler: Starts to become increasingly unstable as the time for her to finish her mission approaches.]]
* {{Sadist}}: From Asha's backstory, it is fairly obvious that [[spoiler:she subconsciously resents all the people in her life who back-talked about her amazing talents and how they amounted to nothing, but denies her envy and tells herself she just wants power. All the death and mayhem she caused in pursuit of revenge is, in fact, her trying to take out her childhood hatred towards her friends on random people who happened to have something in common with the population of a dead and buried planet.]].
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: Asha's connections are good enough to let her literally get away with murder. [[spoiler:''32 times.'']]
** [[spoiler:That is, until new evidence comes to light. The reveal of Asha being capable of Hoti Visnu, and all the victims having the name "Kubera" reopens the case, and Saha On is pushing for the death penalty.]]
* TakeAThirdOption: Pulls this frequently, like when she changes the attributes of the barrier in Atera.
** [[spoiler:PlayedForDrama when Claude prevents her from killing Laila. She doesn't want to kill Leez, but needs to kill one more Kubera. So what does she do? Go after the third Kubera,
Rartia, Ruche Seiran); ''Mistyshore'' (Ran Sairofe, Rana Reimia, Ian Rajof); ''Kalibloom'' (Teo Rakan, Elwin Rakan, Riche Seiran, Siera Sies, Parr Hael, Zard Blaine, Clary Utas); ''Rindhallow'' (Claude Yui, Laila Hemawati); ''Eloth'' (Lutz Sairofe, Saha On, the number one magician of the whole planet.]]
* TheStoic: When you see any emotion on her face, you know it's something big.
* TheSvengali: To Leez.
* TongueTied: She is physically prevented from talking about certain things.
* TookALevelInJerkAss: A lot of her PetTheDog moments towards Leez disappear over the course of Season 2.
* WorldsStrongestMan: She's ranked fifth most powerful mage in the world, but that's just because she wasn't allowed to take the last test. All four of her "superiors" are well aware she is much, much better than them. One of them is even the president of her fanclub.
* WouldHurtAChild: [[spoiler:Some of her murder victims were children.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Very light blue.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: [[spoiler:She's actually 17 years old since she ceased to exist for three years]]. Wouldn't guess it by looking at her.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler:She has only a year or two left of her lifespan. She deliberately overused ''Hoti Visnu'' to disappear for those three years, since she wouldn't have lived long enough otherwise.]]

Tilda Melliot, Natasha Ross); ''Aeroplateau'' (Mirha Simon, Urha Simon); ''Others'' (Asha Rahiro, Kasak Rajof, Agwen that haven't yet healed, and though his celebrity status seems to help mitigate any prejudice against him, Laila reminds him that in Rindhallow, they have ''not'' forgotten what he did during the Cataclysm.
Rajof)[[/note]]
* GoodIsNotNice: He's actually quite heroic, and once things start going down, he essentially dedicates his life to helping out. He's just... not a pleasant person to spend any amount of time with.
* HappilyMarried: Subverted, in sharp contrast to his parents. Whereas Ian still loved Taksaka despite his true nature and Taksaka cared for Ian even without his earrings, Kasak's wife despised him once she realized what he was truly like and although Kasak initially insisted in ''Literature/TheFinite'' that he'd love her without the earrings, he ultimately didn't.
* HumanMomNonhumanDad: His parents were a Quarter and a Nastika. Their story is told in the side novel ''Literature/TheFinite''.
* NeverGotToSayGoodbye: Visnu lied to him about when Ian was due to die (namely so that Taksaka wouldn't get his earrings back until Ian's death wouldn't be so raw) and thus he only returns home long after she's passed, much to his dismay.
* NotSoStoic: His emotions are more muted than nonexistent, and he infrequently expresses frustration in his inability to feel without the earrings.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler:When Yuta believes Kasak was delayed in the Crescent Gate because had to get away from Taraka, Kasak casually informs him that no, he just killed her.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: Asha reminds Leez that as a Half, Kasak is old enough to have a grown daughter, despite looking barely older than Agwen (who herself is OlderThanTheyLook). Amusingly, Kasak tends to interact with people who look younger than him but are ReallySevenHundredYearsOld, and so Maruna (~1000 years old) still calls him a kid, and Kasak calls Yuta (a couple hundred years old) ''[[UsefulNotes/KoreanHonorifics hyung]]'' as a barb and Shess the same unironically (Shess being a longtime family friend and almost as old as the universe).
* OverprotectiveDad: He doesn't like it when someone else calls Agwen 'Princess'.
* PapaWolf: He jumps between this and ParentalNeglect as the result of his dragon side. When he wears the earrings, he is a caring, cheerful dad. But when he takes them off, he becomes cold-blooded and extremely neglectful of his daughter. That said, there are signs that he does care for her even in that state.
* PreMortemOneLiner: To [[spoiler:Samphati]]:
-->Those great transcendentals of yours.. Go ahead and use them over there.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: When tired of Agni's attempts at ObfuscatingStupidity, he threatens to take Agwen and flounce out of the planet (and conflict) altogether.
* TheStoic: As a dragon half, he's almost completely emotionless when he's not wearing his [[PowerLimiter earrings]].
* StrongFamilyResemblance: He looks very much like Taksaka (which was one of many points of contention between them during Kasak's childhood). It weirds Agni out to have someone with Taksaka's face be so... talkative.
* UnableToCry: At least, not without his earrings. After his Emotional Resonance induced rampage during the Cataclysm, he shows no emotion, despite having killed his wife. A distraught Agwen asks why he can't even shed a single tear for what he has done. Kasak responds that he can only do so if he has his earrings, as he doesn't feel love for his late wife or his daughter without them. He then tells Agwen that if she wants him to cry she will have to help him find his earrings.
* UncertainDoom: At the end of the second season: [[spoiler:he hasn't returned from the Cresent Gate. Yuta's not sure if the beings that reside within would have seen him as an enemy and killed him, or as an ally.]] In Season 3, he returns alive, though not necessarily well.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Inverted. He's trying to make things up to Agwen for his actions during the Cataclysm, if stunted and awkwardly.
* WingedHumanoid: He can manifest wings of black [=fire/smoke=] to fly.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler:Season 3 makes it clear that he's dying.]]

[[folder:Agwen Rajof]]
!!Agwen Rajof
!!!Quarter, Birth Attributes: Agni-Agni-Agni
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/agwen_7734.jpg]]

Kasak's daughter, and a professor at the magic university in Eloth.
----
* AffectionateNickname: "Princess", courtesy of her father. The reason for it, however, is rather depressing.
* TheCaretaker: It's hinted she was this to her mother, who became mentally ill after Kasak crippled her.
* FieryRedhead: Rather temperamental and willful.
* HotWitch: She's a magician, and her hat is very reminiscent of a witch hat. She even has a staff that resembles a brook.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: She seems unaware that Shess is a superior sura. When Agni questions her, she refers to him as an old acquaintance of her father's and is confused as to why he would ask. On the other hand, she's aware by Season 3, so either she tried to lie to Agni or she's been informed since then.
* TheMourningAfter: It's implied she hasn't been in another relationship since the Cataclysm. She does mention to Shess that she'd be happy to find a nice man, but the addendum of how it's fine now that her dad isn't around to kill her boyfriend again suggests she's still reeling from the trauma.
* NiceHat: A witch's hat that she loses in the Crescent Gate.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Looks to be in her thirties, but as a Quarter, she's in her sixties.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers: Or rather, Screw the Rules, My Dad's a Really Hungry Dragon! When she's told that she can't just buy uncooked meat from the chef, she makes it clear that she's not taking no for an answer. (Once they realize who it's for, they quickly acquiesce.)
* SecretKeeper: She's mentioned to be one of the people who knows about Airi's circumstances, and she's also one of Shess's status as a Rakshasa (though Chandra is frustrated that she's not as secretive as he wants her to be).
* SternTeacher: It's mentioned that she's so strict that she fails most of her students, and that one of her former students switched schools ''just to get away from her''. Asha thinks well of her as a teacher, though.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Noted to resemble Ian, her grandmother. Others were hopeful that it'd soften Taksaka--who hated Kasak for not looking like Ian--to her.
* {{Tsundere}}: Towards Kasak. Leez is surprised to see the (exasperated) way she treats her own father, but Asha tells her that their situation is... complicated. What with, you know, the whole "he killed several people she loved and feels nothing for her without his earrings on" mess.
* WhatBeautifulEyes: She inherited her blue eyes from [[spoiler:her ancestor Utpala]].
* YankTheDogsChain: She's excited to be living in Mistyshore in her debut... only to immediately be sent to Atera as Brilith's backup. In Season 3, [[ThrowTheDogABone she finally gets her wish]].

!Sura Realm

[[folder:Sura and
[[Characters/KuberaSuraRealm Sura Clans in General]]

The enemies of the gods and by extension humankind. They are ageless monsters that develop in stages and possess many powerful and dangerous abilities.
----
* TheAgeless: Sura can't die of age.
* AlienBlood: Some sura have normal red blood, but others bleed purple or black (like the Taraka clan).
* AnimalisticAbomination: The lesser sura may actually fit this trope better by virtue of looking rather similar to various members of the animal kingdoms (and [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons dragons]]). The exception to the rule appears to be the Taraka clan, which definitely is on the more eldritch side of things aesthetics-wise.
* AntiMagic[=/=]PowerNullifier: The Taraka can seal off all mortal magic and the vast majority of sura magic with their open eyes.
* ApeShallNeverKillApe: Downplayed; this only applies to those of the same clan, and even then there are exceptions. Case in point, Maruna argues with Samphati that most Garuda nastikas were against Akasha's plan of killing Garuda's children to wake him up. The exception here being not only Akasha but Samphati herself, whose sole obsession in life is [[spoiler:to make Yuta suffer, with death if necessary]].
* ArchEnemy: Some sura clans have this dynamic between them, such as the Anantas and the Garudas. The Tarakas are this to pretty much everyone.
* ArmorIsUseless: There are enough [[ArmorPiercingAttack transcendentals that ignore armor]] that it's practically worthless.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking[=/=]AsskickingEqualsAuthority: How the sura run their clans. If a King dies, the strongest sura (a Nastika) will succeed him/her.
* BeingEvilSucks:
** Saying they are evil is very much an undeserved generalization and simplification of a very complicated reality. However, most of them normaly partake in things that are ''very'' questionable, and it comes at a price. They are the most powerful species in the universe. As a whole, however, they cannot avoid the fact that they must devoure each other to survive, they're despised by pretty much everyone else because of their antics, and to top it off, when Visnu separated the realms at the Cataclysm, they got the short end of the stick, while the puny, insignificant humans they screwed over and over again remained in their much less hostile realm. Billions of years of doing whatever they wanted and what they got out of it? Their numbers are dwindling, the few remaining are getting weaker and weaker over time, their clans are being destroyed, and their realm is the one most affected by the Taraka attack. And those billions of years weren't flowers, either. Losing children, friends and partners - or even one's own life - are every day things. One can die simply by angering the wrong foe, and even if they are killed for no reason at all, unless one is strong enough to seek vengeance, there is literally nothing to be done. In short, suras operate under a very different set of morals and rules, which generally put them at odds with everyone else, and makes life in their society in general utterly ''suck''.
** [[TokenHeroicOrc Shess]] lampshades it when he points out that the clans most likely to survive the Taraka attacks are those whom the gods are willing to personally help--that is, the clans who ''didn't'' go around slaughtering humans simply for forsaking fiendish magic.
--->'''Shess''': He who has done less wrong has less to fear.
* BizarreAlienBiology: Sura are (with rare exceptions) carnivores. All sura are decended from the [[MonsterProgenitor Nastikas]] and are weaker the more distant the line of descent. Sura with human forms do not actually wear clothing, but parts of their sura form that take the form of clothing.
** Nastika were [[BornAsAnAdult born as adults]] at the [[TimeAbyss dawn of the universe]]. They have a human form and a sura form. They can switch genders at will (except for the Vritra) and have a degree of control over their appearance.
** Rakshasa are sura with at least one Nastika parent. Like the Nastika, they have a human form and a sura form. However, their gender is determined by the amount of time their parents spent as male or female. They age in a series of five stages with only the first resembling conventional growth. They have to be in their human form to grow into their next stage, which requires the Rakshasa to accumulate a certain level of experience and a trigger of some sort. The growth is abrupt, lasting seconds at most, and can cause dramatic shifts in the Rakshasa's personality.
** Upani are sura with at least one Rakshasa parent. Like the Rakshasa, they grow in a series of five stages, but they do not gain a human form until they reach their third stage.
** Mara are sura with Upani parents. Like their parents and grandparents, they grow in a series of five stages, but only obtain human form when in 5th stage. However, 5th stage maras are extremely rare.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Sura place no value on life itself. They think nothing of murder for food or fun and only bother learning not to kill fellow clan members or allies.
* BornAsAnAdult: The Nastika
* ConflictKiller: The Taraka clan. Suras from different clans generally do not see eye to eye, and it's even worse with the gods. The Taraka attack is so bad that they have put aside their differences, because otherwise (and even then, actually) the literal end of the universe is very, very possible.
** [[spoiler:Ancient humans were this billions of years ago. Like today, suras and gods banded together to end what was seen as a common threat.]] [[spoiler:According to Brilith, however, humans were never as dangerous as the Taraka or as the nastika themselves. Still, this stands.]]
* TheDreaded: To humans, a sura is an immense danger and an object of hatred and fear. Asha, who is quite possibly the [[WorldsStrongestMan strongest magician on Willarv]], states that she can defeat any Upani easily so long as they aren't fifth stage. Upani are ''far'' weaker than Rakshasa and Nastika.
** The Taraka clan. While physically weak ([[spoiler:although they are getting stronger now that their King has developed]]), their ZergRush tendencies and the fact that Nastika transformations into sura form are considered transcendentals (therefore, sealed by the Chaos eyes and handicapping the strongest fighters of any clan) makes them dangerous when they get serious.
* EldritchAbomination: The Kings in particular. They are immortal and powerful beings who have existed since the start of this universe that can kill even gods. Gandharva, even at his smallest size, dwarfs Kalibloom.
* EnemyMine: Gods and suras have allied to defeat the Taraka clan. Yes, things are ''that'' bad.
** Not the first time it happened, however. The two races also fought together [[spoiler:to extinguish the first human race]] eons in the past.
* GenderBender: The Nastikas can change their gender at will (the male forms are generally stronger than female). And a Rakshasa's gender is determined by the time each parent (if they are both Nastika) has spent as each gender, which means there are more males than females.
** The Vritra's clan Nastika used to have both males and females, but after the deal with Visnu, they all changed to male and lost their gender-bender ability.
* TheGoldenRule: Averted to hell and back. The fact that suras don't uphold this is the root of many, ''many'' problems.
* HealingFactor: They can regenerate very quickly, and it's one of their primary defenses. The other is ''DODGE!!!''.
* HumanoidAbomination: All superior sura have human forms, but all retain at least one sura trait they can't change.
* ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty: 5th stage (full grown) rakshasa look like young adults.
* LittleBitBeastly: Even in human form, every sura has a few non-human traits. Some have fur on their arms and legs, others have fangs or UnusualEars like bird wings, fish fins, animals ears, and so on. The lower the sura's rank, the more traits are retained from their sura form.
* MassivelyNumberedSiblings: The nastikas were alive when the universe began, and haven't got sterile since then. Do the math.
* MightMakesRight: The sura society begins and ends on this belief. The king is always the strongest sura of the clan at any given moment. The weak have no rights - if the strong devour them or simply kill them for amusement, no one's likely to bat an eyelash.
* MonsterProgenitor: The Nastika.
* TheNeedless: The nastika don't need to eat at all, they recover vigor by resting, which can be as simple as lounging about for a while. Rakshasa only need to eat to replenish vigor, and even that goes away once they reach their fifth stage. Sura don't sleep.
* OedipusComplex[=/=]DaddysGirl: The relationship of a sura with his/her father. A male sura will usually compete with his father for his mother's affection, and the father can even kill the son for that. In contrast, a female Sura is usually loved and spoiled by her father, even more if she resembles her mother.
* OneDegreeOfSeparation: Justified. All nastika were born at the dawn of the universe and the rakshasa are their kids. It would be stranger if they didn't all know each other somehow.
* OneNameOnly: Sura don't seem to use any sort of family name. They do re-use names, though.
* OutlivingOnesOffspring: Most if not all nastikas experienced the deaths of several of their children. Those like Shess, that belongs to one of the first generations of rakshasa, are said to be extremely rare. Given the power gap between generations and how the sura have a dog-eat-dog society, it's possible that most suras suffered this at least once.
* TheRightOfASuperiorSpecies: Played as straight as possible. Some of the nastikas have kill counts right up there in the millions (and some in the billions, and [[spoiler:Gandharva]] in special in the ''trillions'').
* ShapeshifterDefaultForm: Sura with human forms only take their sura forms to hunt or fight.
* SheIsTheKing: The leader of the clan is called the king regardless of their [[GenderBender preferred gender]].
* SmugSuper: They tend to view themselves as inherently superior to humans--a mindset Brilith feels is undeserved, as it stems more from being [[BornWinner Born Winners]] than any real effort on their part.
* TheSocialDarwinist: Is it really necessary to explain this?
* TimeAbyss: The Nastika were born at the beginning of the universe.

First King of the Ananta clan. Was said to be the strongest being in the universe.
----
* TheAce: He was good at ''everything''.
* ObliviousToLove: He was unaware of Sagara's affections and sincerely congradulated her each time she told him about a new lover.
* PlotTriggeringDeath: He was killed by [[spoiler:God Kubera]], which seems to have indirectly kickstarted the plot.
* PosthumousCharacter: He died around 500 years before the start of the webtoon.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Basically everyone agrees that he was the best Nastika, not just in terms of strength but leadership and character. When Taksaka was rampaging through his clan, Ananta (who was strong enough to defeat even Taksaka) instead figured out a way to calm him down without killing him, since the Dragon clan couldn't reproduce and he didn't want to reduce their numbers any further.
* TooDumbToLive: He trusted the one who was after his life. Sagara of all people admit this on one of her thoughts on the matter.
* WorldsStrongestMan: Even long after his death, the current strongest man in the world, Vritra, is still only known as the "strongest being in a universe without Ananta."

* CoolMask: Had one, with horns and everything.

Realm]][[note]]''Ananta Clan'' (Ananata, Manasvin, Sagara, Vasuki, the strongest in the clan after Ananta. It turned out to be unnecessary; Vasuki took his female form, which is weaker then Manasvin's male form, so Sagara could have both the power she sought and be with the man she loved.
* NotSoDifferent: See Garuda's entry.
* PosthumousCharacter: Although we don't know how he died.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives an epic one in chapter 2-55 about the hypocrisy evident in the "justice" of the gods and Gandharva and Menaka's "pacifism."

[[folder:Sagara]]
!!Sagara
!!!Nastika, Source Attribute: Darkness
[[quoteright:246:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kubera_sagara_2624.png]]

Third and current King of the clan. She is currently working with god Kubera for some unknown purpose.
----
* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Almost no one in the Ananta clan approve of her being king; in fact, only a single nastika does so. That's actually another reason why she and Gandharva are NotSoDifferent.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Vasuki remains in love with her, but she moved on centuries ago. There's actually a very real possibility that, while she truly cared for him - and still does so -, she was never ''in love'' with him, because she always loved Ananta.
* AmbitionIsEvil: ''Evil'' is a bit of a stretch, but it's not like Sagara is a saint, either. This is how (most of) the Ananta clan sees her: a power hungry bitch that always wanted the throne for herself and stole it by breaking the traditional succession order. It says quite a bit that Vasuki - the true king, had traditional sura succession been respected - is the only nastika backing her, and this happens to be the sole reason why she's still king.
* AMotherToHerMen: She treats her subordinates surprisingly well, often discuss her plans with the Rakshasa and won't put them in suicidal situation just to save her own life, quite the opposite. At least one time she put herself in mortal danger to let Riagara and Pingara escape safely from an opponent they couldn't defeat.
** She's also heavily implied to ''literally'' be the mother of the Rakshasas she leads. Riagara's attributes and appearance are a mix of Sagara and Vasuki's, while Pingara's attributes and appearance are a mix of her and Manasvin's. Cloche and Clophe's ancestry is a little more unclear, but if Sagara was one of their parents then the other one would have been a Water-Light Rakshasa.
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: Subverted, Sagara is not the strongest Nastika in the clan, Vasuki is, but since she has his backing, no one else can go against her.
* AtLeastIAdmitIt: Her attitude towards Gandharva is basically this. She recognizes her flaws and isn't ashamed of them; in fact, this was one of the things that made Manasvin fall in love with her.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Has been warned of this. Even if she does manage to bring Ananta back, he'll have no soul or mind, and will be simply a mindless zombie. Given how powerful Ananta was, this bides disaster for... everyone, really. She chose to ignore the warning, so it's yet to be seen whether this will become true.
* CannotSpitItOut: Was never able to confess her feelings to Ananta.
* ChekhovsGunman: She's first seen in a brief flashback panel alongside Manasvin (Ep. 20) without any indication that she would become one of the ten main characters.
* DidntSeeThatComing:
** She killed [[spoiler:Brilith due to the fact that even if it pissed off Agni, she didn't care if he rampaged around the sura realm as long as he was no longer able to return to the human one]]. Unfortunately, she didn't take into account the LoopholeAbuse Agni took advantage of in order to come back.
** Asha [[spoiler:casting ''Hoti Visnu'']] put a severe drawback on her plans. Then again, it's not entirely her fault, as it seems Asha did it mainly at the spur of the moment and never planned on doing so.
* EnemyMine: She hates God Kubera, but works with him [[spoiler:to resurrect Ananta]].
* EqualOpportunityEvil: Sagara doesn't care about clan loyalties or whatever. To get what she wants, she was willing to enlist help from a god, Gandharva suras, an Asura rakshasa, and even a few Garudas, her clan's most notorious foe. She even accepted the interference of a human (Asha) as long as it was beneficial to her plan.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: She utterly hated (and still hates) the Gandharva clan for refusing to help Ananta (since even if they didn't care personally, they should realize that losing Ananta would be a blow to the sura race as a whole). Still, a close look at flashbacks indicate that when the Taraka clan attacked the Gandharva clan, Sagara put her money where her mouth is and [[EnemyMine came to defend them]].
* EverythingButTheGirl: The guy, actually. Sagara got the throne she had wanted for such a long time, but was never able to win his heart.
* {{Foil}}: To Brilith, who was likewise thrust into a leadership role far beyond her abilities, but who, unlike her, has managed to become a beloved leader thanks to Agni. Needless to say, this ''infuriates'' Sagara.
* GenderBender: While all Nastika can change gender at will, Sagara is notable for doing it so frequently. This is because she, like most sura, is stronger in her male form. However, she personally prefers her female form.
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: She's generally spiteful, jealous, and willing to cause large amounts of suffering to those around her to attain her goals... though as she points out, she's NotSoDifferent from Gandharva.
* HeartbrokenBadass: Why else would she be so hellbent on bringing Ananta back? After his death, the notoriously power-hungry Sagara managed to become a king's lover and then king herself. If he returns, she'll lose her throne, but that doesn't seem to bother her at all. Ananta's death affected her so greatly that she simply refuses to accept an universe without him.
** On an earlier note, she had shades of this even when he was alive. [[ObliviousToLove He]] never noticed (or pretended not to notice) her feelings for him, and congratulated her for every new lover. Apparently, this greatly saddened her.
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler:A surprisingly unlucky example given that she successfully killed Brilith, Leez and Teo only for them to be brought back to life in separate ways.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: She condemns both Gandharva and Agni for being willing to neglect their responsibilities and sacrifice others in order to protect the people they care about. [[spoiler:Sagara herself is endangering ''an entire planet'' to try and revive Ananta. And while she mocks Gandharva for vainly hoping his daughter is still alive, it's made completely clear that she has no actual chance of reviving a sentient, sane Ananta the way she believes she can.]]
* InadequateInheritor: From the perspective of most of the Ananta clan, she's this. We don't know ''exactly'' why, but, save for Vasuki, not a single Ananta nastika backs her reign. There are many possible candidates for this:
** She's a bad king. But how exactly is never stated, and this shouldn't quite bother most of them that much, as Gandharva also sucked as a king and those that thought so simply left the clan. The whole Ananta thing is madness, yeah, but the suras aren't exactly known for being wise.
** She broke the traditional succession and usurped the throne. That makes sense at first... until one remembers that the, huh, "rightful" king actually wants her to have the throne. And it's not exactly the first time the Ananta clan went through an unconventional route to fill vacant leadership: after Ananta died, Vasuki should have succeeded him, but Manasvin did so, as he's stronger in male form than Vasuki is in female form. However, Vasuki only refused to adopt male form because he wanted Manasvin to rule to benefit Sagara especifically. No one seems to have had a problem with that, though.
** [[MightMakesRight She's weak]]. The strongest contender, given the way the sura world works. As stated above, sura society is driven by power. Kings like Gandharva, who was a crazy psycho and a brutal tyrant at his peak, are admired as rulers by several suras - including Sagara herself - not for their leadership, but for their power. And, as stated by a few characters, Sagara is weak for a nastika. The Ananta clan may see her as this because, as a king weaker than the others, she makes the clan seem weak as a whole. That and pride, too: having a weaker being above you in any sort of hierarchy must not sit well with any sura, even more so with the notoriously prideful nastikas.
* ItsAllMyFault: After the attack on Atera, she admits being at fault for their failure, losing her cool and trying to kill Brilith, even when Riagara wants to blame others.
* {{Jerkass}}: She is power-hungry, vain, ruthless and cruel. This is actually why Manasvin loved her; unlike other people, she was actually honest with herself, rather than hiding under claims of good intentions.
* JerkassHasAPoint: When she says that she's NotSoDifferent from Gandharva, she has a point; both of them are terrible leaders who are sacrificing the interests of their entire clan for incredibly selfish reasons, [[spoiler:as well as being in denial when it comes to seeing their loved ones again, [[{{Irony}} although she probably didn't realize that.]] ]]
** Also, she condemns Agni for killing the God of Death purely to bring a mortal he loved back to life. While the story is romantic and all, when you think about it, she has a point; it was a pretty selfish thing to do.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's AMotherToHerMen. Also, she genuinely loved Manasvin and was upset when he told her to leave him and be with Vasuki. She's also hinted to have loved Ananta, regardless of his status as king.
* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: After two seasons of everything goin her way, the end of season two got Sagara hit with this, ''hard'': the goal she was so desperate to accomplish got completely thwarted right in front of her eyes, by a human no less, and mere minutes before she could claim success. No wonder she's so pissed when first seen in season three.
* MakeThemRot: Her "Fatal Touch" transcendental makes the target rot. She uses it to try to kill [[spoiler:Brilith]].
* TheMenFirst: Has this attitude towards the Rakshasa following her.
* MoralityPet: Vasuki is other nastika she currently cares about. However, he's in Taksaka's nest, which is quite possibly the safest place in the universe. So, she endangers the sura back in the sura realm anyway.
* MoralMyopia: Her attacking human city after human city it's all fine and good, but Rindhallow deserves to be razed for being "drenched in the blood of [her] people".
* NeverASelfMadeWoman: There's an element of this in her kingship, and she seems aware of this, too. She's only king because Vasuki backs her (even if he's currently in his female form, the male one is his "default" one, as seen in aa flashback: when playing rock-paper-scissors with Ananta, Vasuki's a guy). Previously, all the power she had stemmed from the fact that she made herself the direct subordinate of two kings - both male. It's not exactly the "woman" thing that keeps her from achieving power on her own, but rather the fact that she's weak, and suras refuse follow that.
* NighInvulnerability: Her "King of Toxic Mist" unique transcendental gives her the ''Made of Air'' variety.
* NotSoAboveItAll: She generally presents herself as calm and collected, but when facing Brilith she utterly flips her shit.
* NotSoDifferent: Points out to him she and Gandharva are like this: both hypocritical kings willing to sacrifice their clans for their own selfish goals. It goes even deeper than that, not that she noticed it: they are both very delusional about achieving said goals and refuse to accept it may be impossible even when faced with blatant warnings and evidence.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Looks like a teenager, but has lived for eons.
* OutlivingOnesOffspring: She's had a very large amount of children, enough to not remember all of them, and many have probably already died.
** [[spoiler: It also turns out the bomb Lorraine set off in her car killed the Rakshasas and Upanis who followed her when it went off, including Riagara and
Riagara, Pingara, who were hinted to be her children. Sagara survives the blast and starts calling out to Riagara, asking what happened- only to find a crater and ripped corpses buried in rubble. Her eyes turn [[RedEyesTakeWarning completely red from rage,]] implying that she is going to go on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge.]]
* PintsizedPowerhouse: Her female form is 153 cm; even her male form is only 173 cm. She's perhaps the shortest character in the main cast. Also a nastika.
* PleaseDontLeaveMe: [[spoiler:A flashback has her saying something like this to Ananta, when she is trying to persuade him not to do a HeroicSacrifice. It's even sadder as you see everything from her point of view, and the text gets bigger as she starts screaming, and becomes much smaller immediately after, as if she started sobbing.]]
* ProudBeauty: Is very aware of how beautiful she is, thank you very much.
* ReallyGetsAround: Apparently, she had a lot of lovers and enough children that she can't remember all of them. However, considering her [[TimeAbyss age]], this is likely the case for many Nastika.
* SeeksAnothersResurrection: [[spoiler:To be more precise, she seeks to revive Ananta, even when Agni [[CameBackWrong warns her against it]].]]
* SmugSnake: She's really not as clever as she thinks she is, and most of the rest of the Ananta Nastika consider her a disaster of a King. Despite this flaw, she appears capable of learning from her mistakes and even respecting her opponents to a point, as is evident in her approach with the attack on Kalibloom in contrast to the one on Atera.
* SubordinateExcuse: When Ananta was alive, she was his direct subordinate.
* SuicidalOverconfidence: During the battle at Aeroplateu and Rindhallow, she allows Asha to walk right into her base and doesn't bother with even trying to stop her. At the time, she had almost managed to achieve her goals, it was only a question of time, and what a simple human could do to stop her? As it turns out, a lot.
* UndyingLoyalty: An interesting case. Most Anantas refuse to follow her lead, but those that do are completely devoted to her. The more we learn about the Rakshasas following her, however, the more complicated this becomes: while they are loyal to her, only [[spoiler:Riagara and Cloche]] are absolutely so, and even the former is getting doubts as of season three. It cannot be denied that she has this towards Ananta.
* TheUsurper: A weird variant of it in that the main claimant to the throne - that it, the strongest sura left after the previous king - actually supports her. In fact, having said surport is the sole thing that's keeping the crown on her head. However, most of the Ananta clan sees her as such, and thus refuses to follow her leadership. Sagara herself doesn't seem to bother with them that much, and only keeps the title because it's how she was able to forge the alliance with other suras in order to achieve her goals.
* VainSorceress: She loves her appearance so much that she actually spares a human because he calls her beautiful, and prefers to stay in her female form even though it is weaker than her male form.
** Although possible that she did so in order to stay close to the center of power in her clan, as the sura go by AsskickingEqualsAuthority and the three strongest Nastika were all male, flashbacks indicate [[spoiler:she might have truly loved their first king, Ananta, rather than simply desiring a position of power.]] She remains in female form in the human realm, where it would not be necessary if she only used it for seduction.
* VillainousUnderdog: While she is the most obvious opponent of humanity, among the non-human characters she is often outclassed, and in general has a relatively small destructive power, with even some of her subordinates surpassing her in strength. [[spoiler:At least until she regains her sealed transcendentals in season 2.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Dark blue, fitting her color palette.

A former lover of Sagara's, and the expected next in line when Ananta died.
----

* InSeriesNickname: Taksaka and Riagara call him "Huia".
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: He chose to be female so Sagara could continue to be with Manasvin while having the power she wanted. Once Manasvin died, he backed her up so she could become king of the clan.
* MoralityPet: Deliberately took on this role for Taksaka in the backstory -- although he was more like TheLancer than a traditional morality pet, he was the only one who could keep Taksaka's anger in check.

Sagara's greatest supporter, not to mention one of the most powerful Ananta Rakshasa.
----
* CreepilyLongArms: Her arms are very large and end in claws. They are the one thing that she can't change in human form.
* TheDragon: Sagara's. She's her main supporter and second in command.
* FieryRedhead: Played with. She has red hair and her hereditary attribute is fire, but her personality is very calm.
* FormFittingWardrobe: Wears a dark red bodysuit.
* HiddenDepths: Riagara is far smarter than it seems at first. She was quickly able to understand how Kasak could be useful for Maruna and used this to convince the Garuda Rakshasa to deal with him for her.
* InSeriesNickname: Vasuki calls her "Ria".
* PlayingWithFire: One of her hereditary attributes.

One of Sagara's followers. A 4th stage Rakshasa.
----
* AmbiguousGender: Their gender has not been revealed. Even in their official profile their gender is listed as "unknown."
* {{Invisibility}}: One of their transcendentals makes them invisible and immaterial.
* ShadowWalker: Can use this to observe without being noticed.
* StealthExpert: They have several transcendentals useful to spying and escaping. In the second season they went to observe Teo and her pack of fighter from up close, so that Sagara could devise an appropriate strategy.

----
* LittleBigBrother: People often assume that he is the younger sibling because he's in his third stage and thus looks younger than
Cloche, who is in her fourth stage.
* CuteMute: As with all Rakshasa, he cannot speak out loud; he takes this UpToEleven by refusing to speak even in sura speech unless he is alone with Cloche.

* HandHidingSleeves: His sleeves are very long and loose, concealing his blue, clawed hands.

[[quoteright:205:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2a77553e1fe02271d92a460ca42291dd.png]]

An Rakshasa on loan to the Ananta Clan to cement their alliance. His (or her; he has no actual gender) trollish nature and self-resurrection ability mean the others let him get killed far more than he would like.
----
* AnAdventurerIsYou: He's the Tank, of course; unusual for a tank, his human form is slender and unassuming, and his Sura form is far smaller than most, but he makes up for it with regeneration that makes him almost impossible to kill and transcendentals to redirect magical attacks to himself.
* AmbiguousGender: His appearance is entirely androgynous, which makes sense when you find out that he actually has NoBiologicalSex.
* AutoRevive: He comes back to life automatically when killed -- up to ''twelve times a day''.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: He comes across as a complete goofball, if a clever one. [[spoiler:Then he forces Cloche to retreat with him by knocking out Clophe, taking him as a hostage, and threatening to kill him. When he decides how things should go, he does ''not'' screw around.]]
%%* ButtMonkey
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Nobody in the Sura alliance likes him, since he spends all his time needling them.
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: Invoked; his two main powers are the ability to regenerate from almost anything (including, up to twelve time a day, death) and the ability to redirect attacks to himself. Needless to say, he gets blown up a lot while tanking for everyone else, and is frequently shown dying instantly (sometimes multiple times) to underline how powerful a particular attack is.
* HealingFactor: In addition to his ridiculous regeneration, Hura's unique transcendental allows him to come back from the dead up to twelve times in rapid succession, making him almost impossible to kill.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: He has four arms, although he normally keeps two of them concealed under his cloak.
* NoBiologicalSex: Although others use male pronouns for him, he (like half of the members of the Asura clan) is physically sexless; it's unclear whether he identifies as male or whether members of other clans refer to him as that purely for convenience.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Although he seems like a goofball and a layabout, his effectiveness at needling the others make it clear that he's smarter than he lets on.
* {{Troll}}: Hura delights in needling the people around him; this actually suits his abilities well, in that he's mostly ineffectual offensively but is incredibly good at trolling opponents into wasting their time attacking his nearly-invulnerable regenerating body.

[[folder:Gandharva]]
!!Gandharva
!!!Nastika, Source Attribute: Resurrection
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gandharva_113.jpg]]

First and current king of the clan. He is one of the major players in the current plot.
----
* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Downplayed. His extreme mood swings made him not very well-regarded by many Gandharva nastikas, who chose to leave the clan rather than endure his reign.
* AccompliceByInaction: Manasvin and Sagara consider him - and, by extention, the whole Gandharva clan - to be this regarding Ananta's death.
* TheAlcoholic: Has some shades of this. Some of Maruna's flashbacks from when he was living with the Gandharva clan show him with a bottle in his hand at several moments; not so much in the present storyline, when he [[DrowningMySorrows mostly drinks as a way to cope]]. While he was depressed at the time, in Maruna's flashbacks he seemed quite joyful, which implies this trope.
* AntiVillain: He just wants to find his daughter. Sagara mocks this attitude given the hypocrisy evident in it. See NobleDemon.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Maruna has broken Gandharva's promises for him (Season 1), accidentally ruined his life on more than one occasion (Season 2), and made it clear how pathetic he thinks Gandharva's become (Season 3). Gandharva's certainly resented him for this at various points, but he also won't hesitate to look out for him nevertheless. (Maruna likewise returns the sentiment.)
* BadassDecay: In-universe, Gandharva suffered from a heavy case of this - and it's getting worse, as in season three he's nowhere near as powerful as he was in season two due to taking sura form in the human realm seven years before.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: The basis of his attachment to Agni. Considering Gandharva's past (and present...), Agni treats him far better than he deserves and he knows it.
* BerserkerTears: This is actually one of his abilities. His unique transcendental "Frozen Tears" can only be used when he is crying.
* BeyondTheImpossible: He took his sura form in the human realm, something that should've been impossible for a nastika after the Cataclysm. [[spoiler:It left him severely weakened; so much so, in fact, that seven years later he's yet to fully recover, and likely neve will.]]
* BirdsOfAFeather: The parallels between his situation with Shakuntala and [[spoiler:Teo's situation with her parents]] are what initially make him start sympathizing with her.
* {{Bishounen}}: His human guise has a slight, delicate appearance. He's perfectly happy to take advantage of this.
* BloodKnight: He rather enjoys combat against stronger gods, and his attitude toward such fights is akin to a cat playing with its prey. In the past, a request for assistance in a war to save Ananta from the gods actually piqued his interest before Makara and Menaka intervened with their respective suggestions.
* BreakThemByTalking: While it's suggested there was some external influence forcibly making him hurt, [[spoiler:Taraka!Shakuntala does this to Gandharva, pointing out that no matter what he does, everybody hates him and/or looks down on him and that he will never be accepted by them.]]
* ButtMonkey: Not on Leez's level, but very much so. Let's just say that the present story line is not kind to Gandharva and leave it at that.
* CantKillYouStillNeedYou: Why Agni would rather redeem him than kill him, in spite of all the atrocities he's committed: [[spoiler:according to Visnu's insight, he's needed for the best possible future. In every other, even the second-best, Kali wins.]]
* CassandraTruth: [[spoiler:When a Taraka in Shakuntala's form shows up, everyone realizes that Shakuntala is officially dead, and this is effectively a parasite in her corpse. Of course, Gandharva isn't convinced and insists he can still feel ''something''... and it turns out he may have been completely right, as Shakuntala's consciousness wasn't quite as gone as people assumed.]]
* CryCute: Despite all the terrible things he has done, it's hard not to pity him when he cries for his daughter.
* DeathSeeker: After his HeelRealization, he's pretty much just waiting for someone to kill him as he knows he deserves, and grows increasingly disappointed that Agni ''won't''.
* DeconstructedCharacterArchetype:
** Of the NobleDemon. Most of his attempts to PetTheDog backfire on him in some way--see the section under that trope for more details.
** Then, of TheAtoner. It's what he desperately wants to be, but among other obstacles, it turns out that a HeelFaceTurn brought by crossing the DespairEventHorizon means that [[spoiler:he regresses as soon as he's given hope again]] and he's at his best when, unfortunately, he's kept depressed because at least then he's obedient and less likely to go and screw something up.
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:After Sagara kills Teo, making him realize how he caused the death of countless innocents for a void hope.]]
* TheDitherer: Often finds himself hesitant when forced to make difficult choices. This backfired badly on him in the past when his hesitation [[spoiler:apparently led to Menaka's death]] as well as in the present day, when his failure to choose one side or another in time [[spoiler:got Teo killed, at least temporarily]].
* DotingParent: As far as parents went among the sura, he in particular had a reputation for being this.
* DrillSergeantNasty: Averted. Maruna initially saw him as one, because he made him endure harsh training to develop, but later, when faced with the brutality of Samphati's training, he actually realized that Gandharva was going quite easy on him.
* TheDreaded: Was this before meeting
Clophe); ''Asura Clan'' (Hura); ''Gandharva Clan'' (Gandharva, Menaka, when he was still at full power. They say that even the strongest among the nastika were afraid of him. Also lampshaded by Cloche when Sagara was about to press his BerserkButton.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Even he--a former psychopath with a direct kill count in the ''trillions''--thinks Kali is batshit insane and deserves to be sealed away for constantly trying to destroy the universe.
* EyepatchOfPower: He wears an eyepatch in his human guise to conceal his missing eye, which he tears out and deliberately does not restore as it's the one sura trait he can't change when in human form (and therefore it'll set off sura radars).
* FatalFlaw: Emotional weakness. He knows that he's done absolutely horrible things (and that he should feel bad, even if he admittedly doesn't), which for a sura is a ''remarkable'' understanding of human morality. The issue is that this does nothing to help him make the right decision when he needs to; he always inevitably caves to insecurities and selfish desires. This pushes people away from him, which in turn keeps him at an emotional low, and thus the cycle repeats...
* GoingNative: [[spoiler:He's more depressed than anything, but honestly, compared to the rest of the series, the seven years he spent pretending to be a Half are probably the happiest he's been in the present.]]
* HandicappedBadass: As a nastika in the human realm, he cannot take sura form, something that severely diminishes his power. [[spoiler:Even when he manages to take sura form, it costs him gravely.]] Still, he's powerful in his own right and can tank quite a few hits.
* HappilyMarried: He and Menaka were this.
* HealingFactor: His is extremely powerful and why he's basically been unkillable until now. He's not the strongest being offensively, but you can make a good case for defensively.
* HeelFaceDoorSlam: [[spoiler:A self-inflicted one given that he thinks himself unworthy of being Agni's ally given all the terrible things he's done. It's more psychological than anything given that his following actions are pretty standard for a HeelFaceTurn and his thoughts on the matter suggest that he might have become TheAtoner.]]
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: ''Gods.'' There's a reason Agni is at the end of his rope with him by Season 3. Post-HeelFaceTurn, Gandharva usually means well, but when he has attachments to all sides, there's no telling whom he'll be supporting at any given moment. [[spoiler:Now that he's (probably) fully convinced that Shakuntala is dead, though, Agni is hopeful that his allegiance is firmer now.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: Several signs through the whole story imply that it is going to happen eventually. [[spoiler:It seems this finally happened after the Frozen Tears arc.]]
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler:While there had been moments where he clearly felt uncomfortable, Teo's death and Maruna's slaughter of the humans who confront him after his conversation with Agni make him realize just how horrible his actions have been until that point.]]
* AnIcePerson: He prefers to use ice in battle.
* InterspeciesFriendship: Subverted. He's fond of "Miss Riche" but [[spoiler:their reunion comes with the revelation that he's a nastika, not a Half as he pretended to be, and was likely involved in the attacks on the cities. Leez makes it immediately clear that she despises him for this]].
* IntriguedByHumanity: Although SmugSuper, Gandharva seems a tad fascinated by human culture. He's quick to like humans who are nice to him, has Leez explain curry mushrooms to him, is interested in buying gloves for Maruna (even though sura typically dislike wearing human clothes), and when Teo offers to sponsor the two of them during their Half masquerade, he tells Maruna it'll be a good chance to experience city life (that doesn't end in blowing said city up).
* KickedUpstairs: Confessed to Visnu in a flashback that he never had any desire to be king, and would feel happier otherwise.
* KillTheOnesYouLove: [[spoiler:It's unclear as to how convinced he was that the Taraka!Shakuntala was really her, but regardless, he ends up stabbing her for Agni's sake.]]
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: Long, loose hair, and he's just about as pretty as his wife.
* TheLostLenore: Menaka is this to him. [[spoiler:If his ShipTease with Teo go anywhere, he may grow out of it.]]
* LoveMakesYouEvil and [[LoveMakesYouCrazy Crazy]]: Just see what he can do for Menaka, Shakuntala or [[spoiler:Teo]].
* LoveRedeems: Before meeting his wife, he was cruel and even feared by other Nastika due his power and [[BloodKnight behaviour]].
** [[spoiler:Getting to know Teo makes him consider if he can really justify what he's done.]]
* MakingASplash: The king of a clan whose element is water. His source element would likely be better for healing, possibly explaining why his attacks are water based.
* MasterOfDisguise: Of sorts. He's pretty much the only sura who takes full advantage of his shapeshifting abilities and therefore has taken on more appearances than any other character.[[note]]His normal appearance, his human guise when infiltrating cities, three variations of his child appearance so that he's not recognized as Kalibloom's assailant, and a blue version of his adult appearance so far.[[/note]]
* TheMentor: A combination of this and ParentalSubstitute to Maruna.
* MoralMyopia: He just wants to find his daughter. Never mind the body count. [[spoiler:He later grows out of this]].
* TheMourningAfter: Has yet to remarry after Menaka's death. In fact, rather than find a new mate, he decided to focus on caring for and protecting their daughter instead.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone:[[spoiler:His reaction to the latter event and how what Maruna did pretty much applies to all the bad things he's done just to find
Shakuntala, and implicitly even before then. It also leads to]]
* NobleDemon: He will pay his debt and keep his promises (as far as the situation allows). Sagara repeatedly mocks him for this attitude[[spoiler:, and events in the Frozen Tears arc deconstruct this trope in regards to Gandharva]].
* NotEvilJustMisunderstood: Downplayed, since everyone has good reason to doubt Gandharva, given his long history of actually being as terrible as everyone thinks he still is. Nevertheless, whenever he tries to help out with good (or at least non-terrible) intentions, people believe he's secretly plotting against them. They also take his actions in the latter half of Season 2 as proof he hasn't changed one bit, unaware that his motivations by then were completely different.
* NotHelpingYourCase: In season three, [[spoiler:he has allowed himself to be captured by Agni and Chandra in Kalibloom and seeks to be their ally. However, at the time Brilith had already recovered her memories, and remembered of all the times he killed her without Agni's knowledge. He's desperate to gain the fire god's approval, which means getting Brilith's. When she demands he repent from his past slaughters of human beings, he... absolutely refuses to do so and remains firm on his position that humans are below him.]] [[spoiler:And that's talking to someone who remembers when nastikas helped the gods extinguish the human race once.]] Not your best move, Gandharva.
* ObliviousToLove: He's completely oblivious to Teo's crush.
* OlderThanTheyLook: He's a nastika, which means he's as old as the fucking universe itself, but he looks like the could be in his twenties. Later forms look even younger.
* OverprotectiveDad: He didn't even try to hide his hostility when Shakuntala expressed her fondness for Maruna. However, the trope is played more seriously otherwise. Given that his wife was killed and Shakuntala had previously been kidnapped, his attitude was rather justified, even if said daughter was all too well aware of how much she burdened him as a result.
* PapaWolf: He'd do absolutely anything to ensure Shakuntala's safety, to the extent of being a KnightTemplarParent. [[spoiler:It's shown in full effect in Season 3, where despite recognizing the Taraka!Shakuntala as a fake, he still chooses to protect her and turns against Agni.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: He seems to be a bit of one towards
Makara, Urvasi); ''Garuda Clan'' (Garuda, Maruna, who shows more concern about Gandharva being missing for a few days than his own father's coma.
* PetTheDog: He is willing to spare certain humans in targeted areas if they amuse him and aid Halfs being transported by Half hunters (although this was also in part out of pragmatism).
** As with many other things, this is also deconstructed:
*** He spared Leez due to finding her amusing, and in doing so unknowingly allowed his quarry to escape, although Maruna is more thorough in his approach.
*** When he attempts to do the same with [[spoiler:Teo, she points out that she has no desire to be spared if the rest of Kalibloom is slaughtered, finding such behavior cowardly. This, and Sagara's own comments about the situation force Gandharva to confront the fact that, in the end, engaging in this trope does not make him the slightest bit innocent of his role in the massacre of countless humans.]]
*** Brilith mocks him for this, commenting on how [[spoiler:the one time where he spared her, due to her being Agni's lover, he must've felt gracious... without realizing that he'd already killed her in several other lives]].
* {{Pride}}: Oh so very much. Fittingly for a nastika - and a king - Gandharva considers himself to be completely above petty beings like humans. [[spoiler:So much so that he refuses to ask for Brilith's forgiveness when he needs it the most.]]
* PsychopathicManchild: In the past. Menaka recognized that he didn't kill because he was pure evil; he was too immature to fully understand the weight of his actions. [[spoiler:Brilith even compares him to a child pouring water into an anthill.]] Billions of years later, he's mostly dropped the psychopathic part [[LoveRedeems thanks to her influence]], though he's admittedly still a {{Manchild}} at times.
* RedOniBlueOni: Flashbacks show him as the wild Red to Makara's gloomy Blue.
* ReformedButRejected: [[spoiler:In Season 3, he's sincere about wanting to fight alongside Agni, but at this point, Agni's too wary of Gandharva's HeelFaceRevolvingDoor tendencies to take him at his word--to say nothing of Chandra or the humans, who don't want to give him a chance, period. It's not entirely unjustified, given that Gandharva ''does'' then pull a FaceHeelTurn, though only briefly.]]
* ThenLetMeBeEvil: He's constantly reminded that he's a horrible person and isn't as reformed as he thinks he is, and everyone's just waiting for him to prove them right. [[spoiler:And he does... but when made to choose between them and his daughter (however obviously fake), it's fairly obvious what was a deciding factor.]] In the same vein, [[spoiler:he then pulls yet another HeelFaceTurn for Agni, the one person still willing to see any good in him]].
* ThinkNothingOfIt: [[spoiler:His response after Elwin unknowingly thanks him for keeping her company before she returned to Kalibloom.]]
* TookALevelInKindness: Seems so, as he's not longer the psychotic slaughterer the once was, but isn't exactly a saint, either. In season three he decides to side firmly with humanity.
** Except that maybe not. [[spoiler:As Brilith points out, his change of heart only came after he lost most of his powers and grew severely weakened. She states that his choice to help humankind is meaningless if it's based simply on his inability to kill them in the same scale as before.]]
* TragicBromance: See Agni's entry.
* TragicVillain: Unlike Sagara, he's not malicious, and unlike Maruna or numerous other antagonists, he's not even convinced of his righteousness. He knows he's in the wrong and hates it (even if his guilt is less for his victims and more that he's not the person his loved ones thought he could become). Unfortunately, his FatalFlaw keeps him in a vicious cycle of this.
* TheUnapologetic: Despite his change of heart in season three, he remains this. When Brilith demands he repents [[OmnicidalManiac his pasts exploits]], he utterly refuses to do so. [[PunyEarthlings Humans are just ants, after all]].
* WorthyOpponent: With Agni. It gets into some really convoluted and complex [[FriendlyEnemy frenemy]] territory centuries ago, and just keeps getting more... solid. It's arguable that Gandharva currently feels closer to Agni than he does any other Nastika or Astika, despite technically being on the "wrong" side to keep their relationship as cordial as he might like to.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: He has bright green hair. [[spoiler:It's blue in his sura form, and later switches to blue in his human form as well]].

[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5024e976ae317a5842809423014aa869.png]]

Shakuntala's mother and Gandharva's late wife. She was killed long before the story began.
----
* ActualPacifist: Convinced Gandharva to not get involved with matters that didn't concern their clan. It's worth noting, though, that she was by no means weak (as, according to the creator, was a common false assumption among fans)--she was one of the strongest nastika of the clan.
* AllLovingHero: She wished for mercy for Gandharva, who was a raging PsychopathicManchild at the time, while also despairing over all the humans he was slaughtering and that Visnu accepted them as an acceptable price for the universe as a whole.
* BirdsOfAFeather: [[spoiler:She, an outlier among nastika, was friends with Agni, an outlier among gods.]]
* TheChosenOne: Zigzagged. ''She'' was actually supposed to inherit the name of Gandharva, but despite that not going as planned, Visnu rolled with it and saw that she could be the first nastika to achieve enlightenment and be the one to defeat Kali. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, Kali managed to deceive her, ensuring her death, and thus the role of becoming Kali's bane fell onto Gandharva, whose chances are far less than Menaka's were due to being nowhere ''near'' enlightenment.]]
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Well, as much as a nastika can be. She was genuinely troubled by Gandharva's senseless slaughter of humans.
* HappilyMarried: She and Gandharva were this.
* HiddenDepths: She's gentle and maybe too pacifistic for her own good, yes, but she was also the nastika closest to enlightment and the one originally set to kill Kali (not to mention one of the strongest members of her clan). She also seemed aware of far more things than her husband: [[spoiler:after all, she knew that Visnu secretly despised Gandharva, and knew the reason for it.]]
* KarmaHoudini: Not her, but Gandharva. Her deal with Visnu [[spoiler:(actually Kali)]] was to ensure that he ends up as this, with her bearing the sin of this crimes instead.
* TheLostLenore: Gandharva has yet to remarry since her passing, and at some points thinks back on her.
* MessianicArchetype: [[spoiler:As part of her deal with Kali, her soul bore the weight of Gandharva's sins (therefore being purged with her death), which was her way of saving him from Paradisial Flare.]]
* MoralityChain: To Gandharva; he was extremely vicious before meeting her. It's eventually revealed that she actually invoked this, albeit, with the intent of being his MoralityPet, believing Gandharva could change and essentially volunteering herself for the task. The reality though is that given his actions after her passing, she fell into this trope instead.
* PacifismBackfire: Unfortunately, her influence was [[NiceJobBreakingItHero one of the first steps in what would lead to her clan's downfall]].
** The whole thing gets verbally deconstructed by Manasvin during a flashback to the incident, namely [[spoiler:the Gandharva clan's refusal to aid in the rescue of Ananta, leading to the latter's death]], with him commenting on how such behavior is nothing more than undeserved self-righteousness during times when [[ViolenceReallyIsTheAnswer action might actually be needed for the sake of others in need of help]].
* PosthumousCharacter: Apparently, she was killed by the gods a few centuries before the present time.
* RapunzelHair: Well, she's a nastika.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Her daughter Shakuntala inherited most of her looks.
* UnwittingPawn: To save Gandharva from one day being killed by Paradisial Flare, she struck a deal with Visnu, only to discover later that [[spoiler:it was actually Kali in disguise, therefore preventing the initial best possible future from occurring]]. On a much larger scale, her deal with [[spoiler:Kali]] placed the duty of destroying [[spoiler:her]] in Gandharva's back, which seems rather unlikely - and given said person's goal of destroying the universe...
* WhatDoesSheSeeInHim: When someone expresses shock that she married Gandharva of all people, even Menaka admits she's not quite sure how she ended up falling in love.

[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1df02969595267c94691317c99e6a24b.png]]

Gandharva's daughter, known for looking and acting much like her mother. Most sura assume she is dead; Gandharva has practically sold himself into slavery on the slim chance that she's not.
----
* AchillesHeel: She was Gandharva's, hence why the gods once tried to take her hostage.
* ActualPacifist: She took after her mother in this regard, though unlike her, Shakutala had no real combat ability in any case. [[spoiler:When Agni uses Paradisial Flare against her, it fails, confirming that from start to finish, she never took a single life.]]
* AllLovingHero: Like her mother. Her father, the rest of the clan, humans [[spoiler:like Siera when she possesses him]]--she loves everyone deeply.
* CameBackWrong: [[spoiler: Assuming that the Chaos sura possessing Siera really did assimilate her being into the clan's network.]]
* DaddysGirl: She was Gandharva's little princess and she adored him just as much as he did her.
* TheGadfly: Often teased Maruna over his slow development.
* HiddenHeartOfGold: [[spoiler:Using the last bit of control she has, she tries to convince Gandharva that she's a fake so that he'll finally give up and kill her, and when he does, she keeps it up so that he can believe she already died and moved on to Paradise.]]
* IllGirl: She spent an abnormally short amount of time in each growth stage, which made her very weak. The poisonous air in the sura realm (and lack of an ocean) certainly didn't help.
* InnocentFlowerGirl: Often seen in flashbacks in flower fields, or making flower wreaths.
* IOweYouMyLife: Or rather, We Owe Agni My Life, So Please Don't Fight Him, Dad.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: She was the only thing that kept Gandharva from reverting to his old ways after Menaka's death, and in the present, the idea that she might be alive is all that's keeping him from crossing the DespairEventHorizon.
* MoralityChain: Maruna sees as one to her father while ruminating on the apparent hopelessness of Gandharva's quest to find her.
* MoralityPet: Takes on this role for Gandharva after Menaka's death.
* PrecociousCrush: PrintBonus material suggests that she had one on Agni, who saved her life as a child.
* TragicMonster: [[spoiler:Her ultimate fate, as she's taken over by a Taraka.]]
* UncertainDoom: While she's widely believed to be dead, it's unconfirmed precisely when or how she might have died.
** [[spoiler: It's later revealed that she has passed, likely having been eaten by a Chaos sura, as she seemingly reappears as part of that clan's neural network.]]

Second in command of the clan and Gandharva's right hand man.
----
%%* AntiquatedLinguistics
%%* YeOldeButcheredEnglish: Or some Korean equivalent.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Despite his appearance, he appears to have been loyal to his king and a source of good counsel. [[spoiler:Implied to not fit the bill from a human perspective. When Leez remembers all the despicable nastika she met during her seven years in the sura realm, what appears to be Makara's silhouette is one of the largest ones seen. Given that Brilith's tells Gandharva the two of them met while Leez was among the sura, this is very much a possibility.]]
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: His gloomy personality means, despite his loyalty and competence, few people actually like him. He defused a potential rebellion by reminding everyone that if they overthrew Gandharva, ''he'' would become king, a prospect they found unnerving enough to back down.
* HypercompetentSidekick: It's telling that after the Cataclysm, Makara was trusted to handle dealing with an unruly crowd of fellow clan members unhappy about the clan's situation. Manasvin and Sagara even go as far as state that Makara was king of his clan in all but name.
* NumberTwo: To Gandharva.
* InTheHood: Wears a hooded cloak, adding to his already somewhat dark and sinister appearance.

[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/f3435eafff464774048cfaf7e7cf6b0a.png]]

First king of the clan. Father of Maruna, Yuta, and Kalavinka. Went into a coma after the Cataclysm.
----
* FisherKing: It's pretty much stated that the state of a king reflects on their clan. Garuda went into a coma after the Cataclysm, and the Garuda clan only weakened since then. During the seven year timeskip, the Tarakas attacked full-force, and the Garudas were one of the clans that bore the heaviest casualties, [[spoiler:so much so that they only have a single nastika in fighting shape, Akasha]]. What became of him is unknown.
* LargeAndInCharge: Pretty darn tall in human form and king of the Garuda clan to boot.
* NotSoDifferent: With Manasvin of all people. Let's see, long white hair? Check. Mask? Check. Powerful nastika? Check. King whose comatose state - or implied death in Manasvin's case - put his clan in a difficult situation? Check. Said clan decided to ally with a god to escape that predicament? Check. Had a lover far below him in the power scale? Also check. The main difference lies in their relationship with said lovers: Garuda had two children (that we know of) with Vinata, but also had a kid with Kali ''after'' getting together with the other nastika. Manasvin, on the other hand, loved the ambitious Sagara so much that he suggested she leave him for Vasuki when it seemed he would become king following Ananta's death. It should be noted, however, that flashbacks hint that Garuda wasn't exactly happy with Kali and may have joined her plans for some reason that's not lust (as it certainly wasn't love, as far as one can tell).
** Even their clans' attributes are contrasting: Earth for the Anantas, Sky for the Garudas.
* ParentalNeglect: He ignored Yuta, and Maruna doesn't seem to miss him that much.

[[folder:Maruna]]
!!Maruna
!!!Rakshasa, Hereditary Attributes: Light + Fire
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maruna_211.jpg]]

Garuda's eldest (living) son. His father sent him to the Gandharva clan to be raised by by their king, as they were friends.
----
* AintTooProudToBeg: For all his haughty behavior, he doesn't hesitate to beg for Gandharva to save Samphati.
* AloofAlly: To God Kubera and the Ananta clan. Especially with the latter, since he feeds on the lesser sura to replenish his vigor. The Ananta rakshasas despise him for it; one of them even comments once that it would be the best for them if he dies, since they'll go back to being enemies after everything is over.
* AloofBigBrother: To Yuta. It's not that Maruna doesn't care for him, it's just that his way of showing it is... sura-like.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: He really cannot tolerate (or understand) Gandharva's behaviour most of the time, but he's as protective of him as he is towards his other loved ones, and as much as he looks down on Gandharva's [[spoiler:false life as a Half]], he still goes out of his way to help Gandharva maintain the masquerade.
* BerserkButton: Don't insult Gandharva. He's broken jaws and then some for calling Gandharva's eye stupid.
* BigBrotherInstinct: He went through TrainingFromHell so he could retrieve his younger siblings safety. That doesn't mean he's unwilling to harm them if that's what it takes to bring them back to the sura realm.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Very, very much on display. From seeing nothing wrong with destroying an entire human-held planet (because they're only human, duh), attempting to decimate another, eating Sura allies (non-mission-critical ones) when he needs a boost, going out of his way for others he finds enjoyable to be around, having a rigid honour system he sticks to... Maruna displays every Sura trait Yuta has ever described.
* CantKillYouStillNeedYou: His dynamic with Kasak in a nutshell: as the half-dragon may have information regarding
Jatayu, Kalavinka, he cannot bring himself to kill him, despite how much of a nuisance Kasak becomes - which, as Samphati points out, is a mistake from their plan's point of view.
* ChildhoodFriends: Since he grew up with the Gandharva clan, he and Shakuntala became this, much to [[OverprotectiveDad Gandharva's]] chagrin.
* TheComicallySerious: Him with Kaz's cat is a sight to behold. Especially when, after Maruna's dramatic monologue about survival of the fittest, it just... pees next to him. Because it's a cat.
* ConflictingLoyalty: As Gandharva points out, this is why Maruna can't be AFriendInNeed for him. If forced to choose between him and Kubera (or rather, his siblings), Gandharva knows Maruna won't choose him.
* DealWithTheDevil: [[spoiler:Despite Gandharva's best attempts to dissuade him as no good can come out of using Kali's item, Maruna's determined to use the Pledge Token to reach fifth stage and save his clan.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He's not evil per se, merely antagonistic, but he loves his younger siblings dearly and clearly worries about Gandharva.
* EveryoneHasStandards: He's visibly enraged by slavers and considers them to be filth.
* EnemyMine: He's only working with Sagara as part of a deal to find his siblings. Otherwise, they're [=enemies/prey=]. Actually, he treats the lower-level Ananta suras as prey even as he works with them.
* FantasticRacism: He looks down on humans, but views Halfs like sura.
* {{Foil}}: To Gandharva. Where Gandarva appears relatively gentle but is heavily flawed, is intrigued by humanity, wants nothing to do with his clan by Season 3, and is severely depressed, Maruna is antagonistic but surprisingly noble, looks down on humans, is fiercely loyal to his people no matter the personal cost, and can't understand Gandharva's lack of motivation.
* AFriendInNeed: When Gandharva's on the brink of a DespairEventHorizon, Maruna tries to bring him back by assuring he's still there for him. Unfortunately, it doesn't stick as Maruna has no idea why Gandharva's acting this way, and because circumstances may turn them into enemies.
* ImpliedDeathThreat: When he demands to know why [[spoiler:Gandharva's in Kalibloom]]:
--->'''Maruna:''' Answer me quickly, Cloche. I'm hungry.
** As he tells a captive Elwin, he dislikes killing Halfs of allied clans... but that if it comes down to it, he's willing to go against his morals for the sake of a greater good.
* KnownOnlyByTheirNickname: "Maruna" isn't his real name.
* NobleDemon: As long as he's dealing with Halfs or other Sura, at least. He went out of his way to keep Kasak's daughter safe while fighting him (even when ''Kasak'' didn't seem to care), and tried to treat Elwin well despite holding her as a hostage.
** Notably, he doesn't kill for no reason. He derives no pleasure from the act of killing and only does so for food or some nebulous purpose.
* NotSoAboveItAll: He hates anything to do with humans, but can't help but be intrigued by the tablet that allows Shess to talk... and on the childish end of this trope, he huffs and denies said interest when Shess reminds him that he's too proud to use human devices.
* NotSoDifferent: As Maruna acknowledges, he's ultimately in no position to judge Gandharva for losing sight of reason when it comes to family, given what he's willing to do for his own.
* NotSoStoic: He drops his cold attitude in front of his siblings and (to a lesser extent) Gandharva.
* PetTheDog: He saved Elwin from becoming Upani food even after the sura had gotten what they wanted by catching her.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives a few of these to Gandharva in Season 3, disappointed by Gandharva's implicit decision to abandon his clan.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: He's somewhere over 1000.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Red (the more emotional of the two, not that this is hard in this case) to Samphati's (completely uncaring) Blue.
* TheStoic: He's very reserved, though as Gandharva notes, he does [[NotSoStoic have a playful side]]. The more we see of Maruna, the easier it becomes to see that this is not the whole truth about him; season three in special does an spetacular job in making him show emotion.
* UndyingLoyalty: Towards his clan.

!!!Rakshasa, Hereditary Attributes: Light + Darkness
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/samphati_3164.jpg]]

An emotionless 5th stage Rakshasa, who seeks revenge for her sister's death. Currently aiding the Ananta Clan to achieve her goal.
----

* BestServedCold: She waited ''300 years'' for her chance. [[spoiler:And it was denied her]].
* BrokenBird: Her sister's death absolutely destroyed her. Yes, she lost her emotions as a result of using the Pledge Token, but she had to decide to use first. And it's not like the effects of it are a surprise either - everyone knows that things connected to Kali are not good. Samphati pretty much gave up on herself after Jatayu died.
* TheBully: A weird, downplayed example of this towards the Ananta clan. She's surprisingly respectful towards Sagara, even bowing to her when they first meet - most of ''Sagara's clan members'' don't have this much respect for her, and Samphati comes from an enemy clan. On the other hand, she treats the Ananta rakshasas following Sagara like dirt, going out of her way to rub their uselessness and her power in their face, aware that, since she's a 5th stage rakshasa and necessary to the plan, they can't do anything to her. It's brief, but she did it for no reason other than she could. And it hit them. Hard.
* DealWithTheDevil: She used the Pledge Token, a God-Level Item created by [[MadGod Kali]], to facilitate her early development to 5th stage.
* EmotionlessGirl: Her abrupt development to 5th stage left her mostly emotionless.
* EmotionsVsStoicism: Her dynamic with Maruna presents an interesting case of this. Samphati's use of the Eye of Perishment made her emotions so numb that her own mother recognizes that she barely has any personality left. Maruna himself is not exactly open to expressing his feelings, either; however, when put together, both of them represent the two sides of this trope. Maruna is driven by his loyalty to his family: he refuses to kill Kasak because he could know about Kalavinka's whereabouts, despite the fact that the half-dragon is a ''major'' obstacle to their plans.
Samphati, on the other hand, is cold, uncaring and unemotional. However, they also invert this: despite loving his siblings, Maruna puts his clan before them, and thus is willing to temporarily maim [[spoiler:Yuta]] if that's what it takes for him to go to the sura realm. Samphati, on the other hand, only lost her emotions because of a burning desire for revenge, and is willing to sacrifice the chance of her king ever waking up to get it - and she's fully aware of how bad is the situation of the clan ever since Garuda went comatose.
* FlowerInHerHair: Pink flowers with feathers. The feathers belonged to her sister.
* HumanoidAbomination: Her sura form is a gigantic WingedHumanoid. She's so big, Kasak looks like a small lizard on her forearm.
* IceQueen: Very much so, and not of the [[DefrostingIceQueen defrosting]] kind.
* ItsPersonal: Boy howdy, yes. She ''hates'' her sister's killer with a passion that not even the victim's own mother (Akasha) matches. It wouldn't be too farfetched to say that hate has driven her crazy - and, if she's not nuts yet, she's well on the path to be. As Akasha herself states, Samphati's hatred for the killer is the last thing holding the little pieces of personality she still has together.
* NervesOfSteel: Seems so at first; it's only when Kasak [[spoiler:opens the Crescent Gate that this is averted]].
* OhCrap: When [[spoiler:Kasak opens the Crescent Gate during their battle, Samphati is visibly scared.]]
* PerpetualFrowner: She hardly ever shows anything other than a bland face. Even when she smiles, it's not openly.
* TheQuietOne: Not very talkative. One flashback even has Maruna wondering about it, and trying (and failing) to break the ice.
* RedOniBlueOni: Her relationship with Maruna may be seen this way, with Samphati being the unemotional Blue to Maruna's (relatively more) caring Red.
* {{Revenge}}: Seeks to avenge her dead sister.
* RevengeBeforeReason: When her mother tries to talk her into finding the true culprit behind [[spoiler:her sister's]] death, she mindlessly repeats that it was [[spoiler:Yuta]]'s fault and no one else's.
* RevengeByProxy: She plans to kill [[spoiler:Leez to make Yuta suffer]].
* SanitySlippage: Shows signs of this, most notably when Akasha tries to discuss Jatayu's death with her; Samphati ''refuses'' to accept that [[spoiler:someone other than Yuta]] (most likely a nastika) might be involved in it, as it would make impossible for her to get the revenge she so desperately wants (or, one might even say, needs). There's more than a little indication of her having gone off the deep end in that scene.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Her sura form is a giant winged humanoid that's naked save for the chest.
* ATasteOfTheirOwnMedicine: What she inteds to inflict on [[spoiler:Yuta]]. He killed someone dear to her, she'll kill someone dear to him - that's right, poor [[spoiler:Leez]] got another target on her back.
* TrainingFromHell: Inflicts one on poor Maruna. He later thinks that, in comparison, training under Gandharva was like heaven.
* UncannyValleyGirl: She looks like a beautiful woman, but her mind is eerily off kilter, and she seems to barely think beyond her obsession with making [[spoiler:her sister's killer]] suffer.
* WingedHumanoid: Her sura form.

* FacialMarkings: Her eyes have vein-like markings around them.
* HairDecorations: Wears many golden decorations with red jewels.

* LastOfHisKind: Downplayed. In season three, [[spoiler:she's briefly seen when Maruna crosses the portal to the sura realm. Then, she reveals to him that during the seven year timeskip, the Garuda clan suffered heavy casualties at the hands of the attacking Taraka clan, and that she's the last Garuda nastika in fighting shape.]] It's not known exactly if she is the last [[spoiler:Garuda nastika]] or if the others are just unable to fight.
* MouthOfSauron: Of the Garuda clan as a whole, as she's the sole Garuda nastika seen in the present timeline.
* NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist[=/=]WellIntentionedExtremist: Weeeeell... Akasha blurs the line. She's desperate to find Yuta and Kalavinka, as one of them is - she hopes - the key to wake Garuda up from his comatose state. If simply bringing them to the sura realm doesn't work, however, she's perfectly willing to kill them - a plan most Garuda nastikas are not fine with. But, well, given the awful situation of the clan, can you really blame her for taking drastic measures to wake up its most powerful nastika? She's only thinking of helping her people. ''However'', Sagara implies that one of the reasons Akasha agreed to an alliance with her was to learn her "trick" to become king. So there's that. And Samphati's words in a flashback support this too. Given the mechanics of the Power of the Name, there is a chance Garuda will die if his name-holder kick the bucket - something that didn't bother Samphati ''at all'' when trying to kill one of the two possible candidates (and the only one whose location was known). So, yeah, until we see more of Akasha herself, it's hard to say.

----
* BadassAndChildDuo: With Leny. He may not seems much of a badass on first glance, but he is one.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Very polite and calm, and would rather avoid killing... but he also makes it clear that really, he's doing ''you'' a favour by acting peacefully, so don't push him.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: In his proper debut, he calmly tells (a very moody) Gandharva that he doesn't care what Gandharva thinks of him, but asks that if he wants to discuss something, then if he could do so with more cordiality. [[BewareTheNiceOnes After all, the Kinnara clan may be neutral, but that doesn't mean they're obliged to welcome hostility.]]
* HealingHands: He's able to transfer his vigour, which essentially heals when it comes to beings with less vigour (i.e. humans).
* HeroicNeutral: Technically, as per his clan's way, he's neutral. However, since that means helping the weaker side to maintain balance, he usually ends up helping the side being victimized.
* HornedHumanoid: He has a pair of dark horns poking out of his hair.
* NervesOfSteel: As Agni notes, Shess seems to have a stronger mind than even most gods and nastika. [[spoiler:Thus, that Shess falls to Frozen Tears as easily as he does is a sign that something fishy is going on.]]
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: When he and Agni swapped favours, the one Shess was meant to do increased exponentially, and yet Shess agreed to carry it out (what he wanted from Agni wasn't even for himself!). In return, [[spoiler:he gets MindRaped and ends up BrainwashedAndCrazy thanks to a mixture of Frozen Tears and Taraka]].
* PapaWolf: Towards Leny. [[spoiler:This puts everyone in an awkward position when she's the only one who can save him, but in a way that endangers her: they know that if Shess wakes up and she's dead, they're in trouble.]]
* RealMenWearPink: Has pink hair and eyes, and wears pink clothes. And, love kids! Sura, half, quarter or human, Shess is a kid-magnet.
* SecretKeeper: PlayedForLaughs. Ran needs transportation to Kaliboom, thanks to a request from Chandra that he's not allowed to tell anyone else about, so...
-->'''Shess:''' [[DeadpanSnarker You think it's okay to tell a sura what you're not allowed to tell any other human?]]
* SeenItAll: Why he's unable to advance to his fifth stage. He needs an experience more intense than anything he's been through... which isn't easy when he's been alive for so long and gone through so much that almost nothing phases him anymore.
* SuperSpeed: He's as fast as some Garuda clan members, though not as fast as Maruna.
* TimeAbyss: He was born near the beginning of the universe.
* TokenHeroicOrc: He and Yuta are the only sura whose presences on Willarv are sanctioned by the gods. He's not without shades of BlueAndOrangeMorality, but he's much better in this regard than Yuta.
* WouldHurtAChild: When he interrupts Kasak and [[spoiler:Maruna]]'s fight, he mentions having beaten a young Kasak.

!!!Half, Hereditary Attributes: Earth + Water
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lenny_kubera_489.jpg]]

A Kinnara Half adopted by Shess.
----
* BadLiar: She quickly tries to backtrack on her comment about the sura realm being unpleasant, which Shess calls her on.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Unusually for a half, she has purple hair and eyes.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Half Kinnara.
* HappilyAdopted: She's doesn't like the Sura realm very much, but she's happy under Shess's care.
* HornedHumanoid: She's depicted with short, blunt horns on the sides of her head in Season 3.
* InterspeciesAdoption: While not officially Shess's daughter--she's referred to as his follower instead--he's pretty much been raising her since the Cataclysm, despite the language barrier.
* AnOfferYouCantRefuse: [[spoiler:Undergo a suicidal task to save
Shess, or Chandra will kill him because he's too much of a threat to leave BrainwashedAndCrazy.]] Chandra, when Laila said to get Leny's consent, ''guilt-tripping the little girl was not what she meant''.

!!Vritra Clan
!!!Clan Attribute: Fire
[[folder:The Vritra Clan in General]]
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: They are Sura and share most Sura abilities and attributes, including shapeshifting; in dragon form, they appear somewhere midway between Eastern and Western dragons.
* OneGenderRace: The power of the dragon's breath was balanced out by the unexplained but highly consistent deaths of any two dragons that fell in love. Due to that, the dragon clan was dying out very, very quickly at the beginning of the universe. Since the Primeval Gods didn't want the clan to go extinct, they agreed to fiddle with the laws of reality a bit. In exchange for dragon Halves having the full power of rakshasa, the clan all lost their female forms and became almost entirely emotionless.
* PowerAtAPrice[=/=]EquivalentExchange: At the beginning of the universe, the Vritra made a deal with Visnu. Because the dragons had such powerful breath weapons, they couldn't have children and would die if they tried. Visnu fixed this for them, but at a price: All the dragons had to become male permanently, and any Half that lives past a hundred years would have the power of a 5th stage Rakshasa. The catch here is that along with losing their gender-bender ability, the dragons also lost their emotions and thus no longer had much interest in expanding their dominance, preferring to sleep in their nests. Even worse is that the mothers of Halfs would have to loose eighty years of their life to give birth, deceasing the dragons' desire to have children even more.
* TheStoic: In ''addition'' to being made a single-gender race, dragons were stripped of most of their emotions so they wouldn't reproduce. Some of them kept one emotion very strongly, though, like Taksaka's anger or Vritra's obsession with fighting Taksaka.
* TeamSwitzerland: They're not as explicitly neutral as the Kinnara clan, but they presumably have no alliances either (given their last one was said clan), prefer sleeping over conquering, and didn't take part in the fiendish magic incidents likely out of, again, laziness.

[[folder:Vritra]]
!!Vritra
!!!Nastika, Source Attribute: Unknown

First and current king of the clan. Also the strongest being in the universe after Ananta's death.
----
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Ananta is this to him. Even now that Ananta is ''dead'', Vritra's title is only "strongest in the world without Ananta."
* StoryBreakerPower: [[spoiler:He has a transcendental that could kill any sura, no matter how powerful.]] However, he'd rather sleep than fight.
* WillfullyWeak: Even though he is the ''strongest person in the world'', he was even stronger in his female form - enough to give [[WorldsStrongestMan Ananta]] a run for his money. He gave it up (agreeing for all dragons to be made male when it was necessary for them to become a OneGenderRace) because most other dragons are stronger in their male forms, so it was better that way for the clan as a whole.
* WorldsStrongestMan: Now that Ananta is dead. However, he's been somehow weakened and the position currently belongs to Taksaka.

[[quoteright:244:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/21ddb0ef686174d2a7f01ebc8158dbd3.png]]

The Destruction Dragon, second-in-command of the clan. Kasak's father and Agwen's grandfather. His only emotion is anger. He is one of the two protagonists of {{Literature/The Finite}}, a side-novel.
----
* AbusiveParents: He was one to Kasak, who recalls being beat by him frequently.
* HappilyMarried: Despite all the obstacles, he ended up as this with Ian, even without his earrings.
* HiddenDepths: He's a good gardener. Of all things!
* InterspeciesRomance: With Ian, a Quarter.
* TheMentor: To Riagara who stayed in his nest. He taught her how to fight, and thus she moves more like a dragon than a snake.
* MoralityPet: Deliberately invoked by Vasuki, who chose to live with him to try and control Taksaka's UnstoppableRage.
** Played straight with Ian Rajof, who calmed his anger and made him promise not to get into too many fights.
* TheResenter: Hated Kasak both for costing Ian 80 years of her life and for getting her attention after being born. They've reconciled somewhat, as Taksaka would occasionally visit him and Agwen before the Cataclysm.
* PetTheDog: Despite being in an earring-less and pissed off state, when he takes off from a field and decimates the area (by virtue of being him), he leaves one spot untouched: where Shess is standing. Shess silently thanks him for this bit of consideration.
* SignatureMove: His invisible fire, which Kasak inherited.
* UnstoppableRage: Constantly and with almost no need for provocation. His only emotion is ''anger''.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With any of his friends, aka Vasuki and Airavata.
* WorldsStrongestMan: Funnily enough, The Finite side story actually says Taksaka is now the strongest being in the universe because Vritra has been somehow weakened. Taksaka has enough power that he can threaten Visnu, one of the ''Primeval Gods'', and make the god of ''resurrection'' afraid.

[[folder:Utpala]]
!!Utpala
!!!Nastika, Source Attribute: Water
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/775441d0073ebd93145f685d0d818514.png]]

At the beginning of the universe, Utpala was female and in love with Taksaka; she protested the strongest at the demand that all the dragons become male, and retained more emotions than most afterwards. Her strongest emotion, however, was ''envy'', leading to constant conflict with anyone else who Taksaka got close to. She's a major character in Literature/TheFinite, but is dead in the main timeline and does not appear in the webtoon proper.
----
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: She knew that Taksaka couldn't return her feelings due to the circumstances of the Vritra clan, but was satisfied with the promise that she would always be "the dragon closest to him."
* ExactWords: When Taksaka starts living with Vasuki (who was the only one who could stop him if he went on a rampage) she is extremely upset because he promised that she would always be the one closest to him; he, however, points out that he said she'd always be the ''dragon'' closest to him, and Vasuki is not a dragon. This leads to their falling out.
* GreenEyedMonster: Her driving emotion; she is bitterly envious of anyone else who gets close to Taksaka. [[spoiler:Or not. In reality, she managed to get over her envy generations ago when she realized she had sired a half-dragon.]]
* IncompatibleOrientation: In addition to suffering from being forced to become permanently male, she found that Taksaka no longer tolerated her in that form.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: [[spoiler:Contrary to the envy we're initially led to believe, seeing Taksaka with Ian actually makes her happy, since Ian is her descendant; and she ultimately chooses to die without revealing the truth of the attack on Ian's village to
Leny); ''Vritra Clan'' (Vritra, Taksaka, in order to protect him from the person who is really responsible.]]
Utpala); ''Yaksha Clan'' (Yaksha, Shuri, Hanuman); ''Taraka Clan'' (Kali, Taraka, Yuta/Jatayu)[[/note]]
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler:She is actually Ian's ancestor.]]
* PosthumousCharacter: She's dead by the time the main story takes place.
* TakingTheHeat: [[spoiler:She allows Taksaka to believe that she was responsible for destroying Ian Rajof's village, and lets him kill her so she can die with the knowledge of who is actually responsible, because if she found out who really did it he would seek revenge on them and she believes he'd get killed in the process.]]
* {{Transgender}}: Played for drama. She was forced to take a male form forever, against her will, near the start of the universe, and this is at the root of much of her bitterness towards the gods and the rest of her clan.
* WalkingSpoiler: Her actions, backstory, and motivations in The Finite are key to the story.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Her backstory gives her a lot of reasons to act the way she does; she was forcibly assigned to the wrong gender when the Dragon clan was made a OneGenderRace, her beloved had his emotions stripped away and later rejected her, and [[spoiler:she eventually dies, hated by him, after letting him believe she was responsible for destroying Ian's village. Only Ian knows the truth, and Utpala specifically asks her to never tell anyone. Worse, by the time of The Finite, she's not actually causing trouble anymore and hasn't for generations; but nobody will ever know.]]

* TokenHeroicOrc: As with the Kinnara clan and Vritra clan, they didn't retaliate against humans for forsaking fiendish magic. Although Yaksha sura are among the sura attacking cities in the present, it's because of their alliance with the Garuda (and Gandharva) clan.

First king of the clan.
----
* CoolOldGuy: While he usually took on the form of a preteen, it's stated that his mental age was that of an old man, and accordingly he acted rather grandfatherly.
* FriendToAllChildren: He loved to play with children.
* IntriguedByHumanity: He (and the rest of his clan) is friendlier to humans than most sura clans. As a result, Yaksha Halfs are the most common type of Half.
* PosthumousCharacter: Died long before the story began.
* PowerNullifier: His bones nullify Half transcendentals, and are used by Half hunters. Agwen, as an activist for Half rights, has destroyed most of them by the present.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: When Vritra and Kinnara's alliance dissolved, he advised Kinnara to do what she could to protect her clan, now that they were ally-less, and promised to try and keep his own clan members from attacking hers.

Yuta's mother and the 2nd king of the clan.
----
* BerserkButton: Separating her from Yuta is... not recommended. Including when he's done it himself. [[spoiler:Justified: she was built to be this way.]]
* CombatTentacles: Her true form is an enormous, monstrous-looking, vaguely-female black outline descending into countless tentacles.
* TheDreaded: To her own people and everyone else.
* HealingFactor: She can regenerate indefinitely even after death, although she loses her memories in the process. Combine this with her AntiMagic, and she is an extremely dangerous opponent.
* LieToTheBeholder: She appears to Yuta as looking just like Kali, but to everyone else is a tentacled EldritchAbomination.
* MyBelovedSmother: She wanted to groom Yuta into the image of a king, and a king by the twisted standards of the Chaos Clan at that. She constantly insisted that he shouldn't have friends or stay in his human form. She also claimed that he should view everyone and everything as food, and those who taught him otherwise (like Shuri) would just weaken him. She even followed him into the human realm to take him back home.
* PowerLimiter: Her eyes can temporarily seal the transcendentals and magic of anyone within her range of vision; and she is able to ''permanently'' (or at least, for as long as she lives) seal the transcendentals of even a Nastika.
* ResurrectiveImmortality: When Taraka is killed, she comes back to life, if missing a few key memories.
* WeakButSkilled: She is weaker than a Rakshasa, but her other abilities make up for it.

[[folder:Yuta[=/=]Jatayu]]
!!Yuta/Jatayu
!!!Rakshasa, Clan Attributes: Chaos + Sky, Hereditary Attributes: Light + Unknown
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kubera_yuta_secondstage_2490.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250:[[labelnote:Click to see his third stage appearance]]https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kuberayutathirdstage_2843.png[[/labelnote]]]]

A Half-Garuda-Half-Chaos Rakshasa. He was stranded in the human realm during the Cataclysm and is looking for his siblings. He joins the party on their way to Mistyshore after developing a crush on Leez and learning that they too are going to Kalibloom to try to draw the Sword of Return.
----
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: For all Yuta can be very sweet, he can be really stubborn and, when he is, he can become quite obnoxious when he puts his mind to it. Just ask Maruna (not that he's one to talk about being a pain). Ran, however, ''doesn't'' find Yuta to be annoying, and acts something like an older sibling despite being over 200 years years his junior.
* AstralProjection: How he returns in Season 3, while his real body is BoundAndGagged.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He is a perfectly nice and gentle young boy...until he gets hungry and/or angry. He's fond of torturing and killing his prey slowly (usually by eating them alive and forcing the others to watch) and taunting his enemies about it.
* BigEater: Unlike other sura, who eat mainly to replenish vigor and don't need to otherwise, Yuta ''must'' eat regularly to survive.
* BigotryException: Downplayed in one case and subverted in another. The downplayed instance happened among humans: they don't ''like'' him, but they want his help because they feel he might help protect them. The fact that they very clearly want to use him bothers Yuta to no end.
** Subverted when it comes to Leez. Asha at first chastises Leez for her hypocrisy (oh, the irony) in being friends with Yuta despite her absolute hatred of high-rank suras. However, Ran is quick to point out that the only one Leez knew as "high-rank sura" was Maruna, the one that destroyed her village, and that she would have no problem with being Yuta's friend. She later confirms this while talking to Yuta himself, and fully accepts him regardless of what he is.
** ...Or maybe not. When he sees the memories she recovered in Season Three, Yuta remarks that there are other reasons for Leez to hate Garuda rakshasas so much. If, like with Maruna, this applies to a single individual or to the group as a whole is yet to be seen. Regardless, this fact in specific doesn't seem to have changed her relationship with Yuta all that much.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: To an extent after reaching third stage, where he still tries to play nice with humans, but Asha (his confidant) and Kasak (who can hear sura speech) know that he's not quite empathetic or benevolent as he pretends to be.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Even compared to other sura, his mind is ''very'' alien. He has no concept of clan loyalty and will eat "allies" if he feels hungry and doesn't know them personally. He also treats humans like sura, only with the caveat that he can't eat them.
** Even more pronounced in his [[PlotRelevantAgeUp Third Stage.]]
* BoundAndGagged: Deliberately has this done to himself in Season 3, due to his HorrorHunger and to weaken the rest of the Taraka clan.
* CategoryTraitor: Maruna isn't exactly happy that Yuta's helping humans instead of his own clan, and thus considers him to be this. Downplayed, though.
* ChildOfTwoWorlds: Taraka mother, Garuda father. Notably, by definition, ''Yuta shouldn't exist'' - suras from different clans can't produce children between them, so the method of his conception remains a mystery. It might be somewhat explained by the fact that Kali is a primeval goddess even if she adopted a nastika name. Much of Yuta's inner conflict stems from his attempts to conciliate his two halfs: he ''does'' love Taraka in his own way, but despises the part of himself that wants to eat others. As a kid, he even ran away from Taraka to live with his Garuda siblings. There is the not-so-subtle implication that his conflicting loyalties between Leez and Maruna embody those two sides: when he grew up to third stage, it was basically out of a choice he was forced to make between the two of them, and it was framed a him choosing between his Garuda and Taraka halves.
* CreepyGood: His HorrorHunger is usually a detriment, but he's also willing to use it to freak out the enemy.
* TheConfidant: To Asha, Leez, and Ran to varying degrees.
* CoolMask: In his sura form, he has a domino mask like Garuda's. [[spoiler:In his third stage, it covers his face]].
* CuteMute: To humans.
* DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: Played with. Yuta is well aware of his own strength and has fine control over it. However, he can be careless at times, and can break a man's arm by bumping into him. He also overestimates the strength of humans. If Leez weren't MadeOfIron, he could've killed her with a hug.
* EatenAlive: His preferred way of eating.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: His skin is so pale it can look gray at times.
* EyeColorChange: His eyes are normally grey, but they turn red with black sclera when he's using his eye-based AntiMagic ability, [[spoiler:and teal when he's using insight]].
* FisherKing: The strongest yet, in terms of how much he influences the rest of his clan. It seems to be the point behind his birth, as his rise in power means the Taraka clan's rise as well, whether Yuta himself likes it or not.
* FriendOrIdolDecision: Yuta realizes he will have to choose between his brother and Leez when he finds out that the latter wants to kill the former for destroying her village. [[spoiler:He chooses Leez... at least for now, although he still hasn't told her the Sura she's hunting is his brother.]]
* FullFrontalAssault: He's completely naked in his 3rd stage sura form. It wasn't played for fanservice or horror however.
* TheGadfly: When he occasionally lets his mischievous side out, it's usually fairly benign and often cute. [[spoiler:Once he hits Stage 3... Let's just say he starts to take after his mother's BlackComedy ItAmusedMe attitude a bit more frequently.]] It's more prominent in his interactions with Kasak, who's ability to speak and understand the sura tongue means there's no filter in their interactions.
* HeIsAllGrownUp: Once he reached his 3rd stage.
* HeinzHybrid: He appears to be an odd mix between Garuda and Chaos. [[spoiler:Then he displays abilities only gods' should have.]]
* HorrorHunger: For pretty much anything that moves.
* ItGetsEasier: He admits that he's not unfeeling over having to feed on other sura--they ''are'' his own kind, after all--but that he's had to do it so many times that he had no choice but to get desensitized.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: [[spoiler:After he loses control of himself and bites Leez, he vows to stay away from her and only protect her from afar so that it never happens again. It doesn't last, as he returns in order to give her the newly modified Hide of Bondage, and decides to stay with her at her request.]]
* KnownOnlyByTheirNickname: Yuta nor Jatayu are his real name.
* LackOfEmpathy: He doesn't really care about anybody he doesn't know personally. [[spoiler:This is one of reasons he wasn't bothered by Asha's [[SerialKiller past]].]]
* LoopholeAbuse: He made a promise with Shuri that he would never eat humans. When he saw the Half-hunters strike down the woman he was helping, he decided that he would just chew them up and spit them out.
* MaleGaze: To Leez on multiple occasions.
* MissingMom: [[spoiler:His mother Kali left him under the care of his fake mother, Taraka.]]
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Right behind his first set of fangs are more sets, even on his ''tongue''.
* NeverLiveItDown: InUniverse, if Yuta is getting too stubborn, Kasak is happy to remind Yuta that ''he accidentally destroyed Kasak's extremely important earrings''.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: While he doesn't act particularly stupid, his childish behavior and crush on Leez makes it hard to tell how much he knows. Even those who know full well how old he is, such as Asha, can forget his age and experience.
* PlotRelevantAgeUp: As standard for sura. To his intense annoyance, he's been stuck in 2nd stage for a couple hundred years. He finally advances into 3rd stage [[spoiler:to prevent Maruna from killing Leez]].
* PowerIncontinence: He can't control when he's using [[spoiler:insight]] and can't seem to recognize when it activates.
* PowerNullifier: Part of the reason he's so powerful is because his eyes nullify any magic or transcendentals in his range of vision; even in his second stage, he says he would have no trouble defeating a fourth-stage Raksaka if they were transcendental-focused.
* ThePromise: He promised Shuri that he wouldn't eat humans, and that he would only eat sura who attack him. He's serious about keeping these promises, but more of the letter than the spirit.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: As a Sura, he doesn't age the way humans do, and has lived for hundreds of years.
* ResurrectiveImmortality: It's eventually revealed he has this, though no one wants to confirm it as [[spoiler:losing his memories of this life will likely turn him into the monster Kali wants]].
* SdrawkcabName: His alias is "Yuta", which is similar to the name given to him by his Garuda family (Jatayu). Considering that the person who gave him the alias (Leez) had no way of knowing his real name, he was pretty surprised.
* SecretKeeper: Asha eventually spills everything she [[TongueTied could]] to him.
* SingleTargetSexuality: For Leez. The narration even describes him as "the Rakshasa who only has eyes for one girl".
* StarCrossedLovers: The whole "wants to eat her" thing has thrown a giant wrench in any romantic prospects with Leez, suffice to say.
* ThatCameOutWrong: Usually he's able to avoid this since he needs to write it out. However, he at one point tells Leez he doesn't like to wear clothing... (He's referring to human clothing rather than sura, which is actually altered body parts)
* TookALevelInJerkass: His third stage comes with an increased LackOfEmpathy, and he admits to Asha that all of his previous lessons in restraint seem utterly pointless now. Though...
* TookALevelInKindness: ... by Season 3, it's less pronounced, whether because he's mellowed out, the situation's gotten more serious, or because he's trying to not be what Kali wants, or some combination of the above, etc.
* VengeanceFeelsEmpty: In volume 2, Yuta unexpectedly reveals [[BlueAndOrangeMorality he would not seek revenge if someone were to kill Leez. He would just leave without a single regret]]. A pretty stark contrast to Leez and [[spoiler:Asha]], who are both strongly motivated by revenge.
** However, God Kubera implies this might not be exactly the truth.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: After he develops to third stage. Leez is eventually able to get him to wear shirts that she buys for him.
* WillfullyWeak: This is how he hunts. He suppresses his transcendental value to appear weak, then when other sura attack him he takes sura form and eats them.
* {{Yandere}}: After his PlotRelevantAgeUp, he starts thinking things like how [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou he wants to be the one to kill Leez]], though this trait calms down after [[spoiler:he tries to leave for her own safety]].
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Not in terms of [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld years]], but rather his growth stage. He looks older then most Rakshasa do.

[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cbcc35816b9ee65e2bb3457d075ceb9d.png]]

The Goddess of Chaos, considered mad by the rest, and for good reason. She's Yuta's original mother. She created Taraka to protect him in her absence.
----
* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: No one likes Kali, not even her own son.
* AbusiveParent: Oh, where to start? Pretty much everything that went wrong in Yuta's life can be traced back to Kali somehow. He even calls her out on it in one of her monologues, claiming she knew very well that he would end up being miserable.
* ArchEnemy: Visnu's. He tries to keep the universe functioning, she wants to destroy it.
* AxCrazy: Kali may be a character of many mysteries, but one thing was never in question: she's completely off the rocker. In a dangerous way.
* BerserkButton: [[spoiler:She's very offended by Leez "changing" Yuta's name]], reacting violently and ripping the offending party limb to limb.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: According to Yuta, she doesn't believe that doing wrong this is bad. She even lampshades it, noting that no one will ever understand her idea of justice.
* ComesGreatInsanity: She's a primeval goddess and madder than a hatter.
* CompleteImmortality: Kali's a primeval goddess, meaning that her jurisdiction - and thus herself - can never be destroyed.
* ConsummateLiar: She regularly lies about her Insights.
* TheCorrupter: She has a persuasion skill that makes her able to do this to anyone, [[spoiler:as shown with what she did to Siera]].
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler:She wipes the floor with Leez in Konchez. She even lampshades it, noting that it wasn't even using her true body, but Yuta's double.]]
* DealWithTheDevil: Offered this [[spoiler:to Menaka, taking Visnu's form. She would allow Menaka to bear Gandharva's sins, thus ensuring his redemption, in exchange for Menaka's remaining time.]] [[spoiler:When Menaka died, she was turned into Kali into an entity designed to protect her son - Taraka herself.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Say what you want about Kali, but she'll stick to her goals. Billions of years and countless sealings haven't done anything to threaten her convictions.
* DidntSeeThatComing: She thought Leez would choose to kill Asha instead of Maruna when she sent her to the past.
* EvilIsPetty: Delivers the above mentioned curbstomping to Leez because she dared to give Yuta another name, despite the fact that she remarked herself that Leez's interference would amount to no more than a small detour in her plans.
* TheDreaded: In-universe, anything regarding her is bad news. While she's worshipped by humans, the few records about her aren't exactly praising her kindness.
* GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler:On Konchez, she takes over Yuta's remote body]].
* HaveYouSeenMyGod: She disappeared long before the Cataclysm, shortly after giving birth to Yuta. [[spoiler:She's been sealed away by the gods and nastika.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: The reason she's so set on ending the universe? She cannot stand the existence of any beings stronger than her.
* KarmaHoudini: She's a primeval goddess; in other words, she's basically unkillable - even if she destroys the universe, there isn't really any way to punish her, except sealing, but even that never lasts: she has escaped sealing several times already.
* MadGod: According to Gandharva, she's so bad she's had to be sealed over a hundred times over the history of the universe.
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:She took advantage of Menaka's compassion--as someone who could eventually become her bane--to orchestrate her ultimate death.]]
* MissingMom: To Yuta. At least she left him a simalucrum to act as his mother in her stead, who is...completely...crazy...okay, maybe not a good thing. Yuta even says she knew he would be miserable. Seems like she did it on purpose in order to shape her son.
* MysteriousParent: Yuta's.
* OccultBlueEyes: A marvelous pair of turquoise eyes that appear to indicate the use of Insight.
* TheOldGods: A Primeval Goddess, older than the universe.
* OmnicidalManiac: She's considered one In-Universe.
* PlayingBothSides: She would neglect to nullify some skills and then sit back and watch as other destroyed themselves with them.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: When God Kubera comes to talk to her about Gandharva, she's completely naked.
* ShipperOnDeck: Completely inverted. She considers love to be a disease, and thus she's made sure to give Yuta a compulsion to eat anything he loves.
* SpannerInTheWorks: To Visnu, as his insight is imperfect when it comes to her, meaning that she can mess up his plans.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: The universe has beings stronger than her? Just destroy it all.
* WeWillMeetAgain: Inverted; the last time Yuta saw her, she told him they would never meet again.

!!!Jurisdiction: Nature, Source Attribute: Earth

The God of Earth, and the god whose name Leez bears; his domains also encompass gravity, wealth, and strength.
----
* TheAtoner: His current motivation seems to be to atone for [[spoiler:killing of Ananta]], although he is clearly increasingly conflicted.
* TheChooserOfTheOne: In a play on this, he, unable to decide, puts the choice in the hands of someone else. However, he doesn't explain the full consequences of the choice.
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: During the day, it's white, but it's golden at night.
* DeathSeeker: An alternate interpretation of what he's up to can be summarised as "the universe's most convoluted, indirect suicide attempt" --
Shiva, Kali); ''Natural Gods'' (Kubera, Agni, for one, worries this is the case. Sagara, too, picks this vibe up... and, just doesn't care: as long as he doesn't peg it until she's finished with him, she's fine with it.
* GravityMaster: He is the god of Earth and wealth, after all.
* ManipulativeBastard: He is behind the sura searching for Leez...as well as the one who gave her his name in the first place. Not to mention also saving her hide, just to complicate everything in the process and shorten her life expectancy in the long run. Yay?
* MasterOfTheMixedMessage: Everybody who deals with him for any length of time winds up complaining about this. Agni, Gandharva, Sagara, Leez, every recorded Earth Priest who spent quality time with him or his objects...
* MyGreatestFailure: It's implied that he deeply regrets [[spoiler:his killing of Ananta]]; he specifically warns Leez not to repeat his mistakes, and to stand by those who give her their trust.
* LapPillow: Although the gesture is not appreciated due to feeling like a "wooden pillow" he serves as one to [[spoiler:Leez after saving her from a brutal battle with Sagara]]. [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial He claims that she had crawled on to his lap]] when she asks why...
* TakeAwayTheirName: It's implied he ''literally'' gave his name to Leez. He told her father to name his child Kubera, and from then on refused to use it for himself. He tells Leez that she can only call him 'mister', and even then, only if she doesn't attach any particular significance to it as a name.
* PetTheDog: To animals and Leez.
* PowerDyesYourHair: His normally white-ish hair turns gold at night, along with his eyes.
* TheStoic: Agni notes that he's never seen him smile, and thinks he's lonely. Leez kinda-almost gets a smile out of him on a few occasions, but... there are the ever-present caveats attached.

!!Agni/Babo Kim
!!!Jurisdiction: Nature, Source Attribute: Fire
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kubera_agni_1513.png]]

The incomparably silly God of Fire, summoned by Brilith when she was a child. His easy-going nature is largely an act, meant to reduce the strain on her.
----
* {{Adorkable}}: Despite being a god, he's a giant dork, both in human guise and out of it.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: He's regarded as an outsider among the gods due to his emotional nature.
* BeingGoodSucks: [[spoiler:Both Menaka and Shakuntala]] made their LastRequest to him to not lose faith in Gandharva, knowing that Agni is his only chance for redemption. Thus, Agni does his best to honour that wish, but he knows it costs him a lot of goodwill from his allies and Brilith, and Gandharva constantly letting him down wears on him. Also, not killing Gandharva when he had the chance ultimately leads to Agni [[spoiler:giving up his right to enter Paradise]].
* BerserkButton: When Gandharva [[BlatantLies claims he killed]] [[TheLostLenore a certain woman]], he immediately goes white fire (10,000+ degrees), nearly killing Brilith in the process. The other gods even refer to his "ex" as a button they can press to make him mad.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Brilith notes that she's never seen him mad in all the years she's known him, and likewise his fellow gods find him difficult to anger (BerserkButton aside). Actually pissing him off, though, is a ''bad'' idea.
* BigEater: It helps when food just burns up inside of him. During a meeting, he suggests they get something to eat, to which Brilith points out they just had lunch.
* BirdsOfAFeather: [[spoiler:He was friends with Menaka, which is unsurprising when you consider their similar personalities and positions among their kind.]]
* ButtMonkey: Among the gods. When DeathIsCheap, they treat pushing him until he snaps and kills them as a joke.
* CannotSpitItOut: Despite being obviously head over heels for Brilith, the complications of a god-human romance prevent him from making it explicit. [[spoiler:Also, the millions of years' worth of baggage. He ultimately loses his chance.]]
* CluelessChickMagnet: He's stated to be rather popular among the goddesses, but notices none of them due to his SingleTargetSexuality.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: On one hand, his alias literally means "idiot" and he acts the part. On the other hand, a PhysicalGod.
* ElementalHair: He's the [[PlayingWithFire fire power]] and he's got orange hair.
* FanBoy: His initial disguise when the temple guards find him is to pretend to be Brilith's fanboy. Turns out it wasn't completely an act; he's very disappointed when he accidentally incinerates her autograph a few minutes later.
* FieryRedhead: In the literal sense. Figuratively, it's actually inverted, as his anger is more likely to manifest itself as TranquilFury.
* TheFogOfAges: He implies he doesn't even remember his childhood, he's so old.
* GoAndSinNoMore: It never actually happens, but for most of the first two seasons he's trying to do this to Gandharva. He's not very cooperative.
* GodIsGood: Out of all the gods, he seems to be the only one actively dedicated to protecting humans, such as (ironically) being the only one in the past who cared about Gandharva's slaughters. When he tried (and fails) to protect a small, remote planet from him, the local god even thanked him for bothering to look out for a relative speck in the universe he oversees. In the present, once he reveals himself to the populace, he takes a proactive role in helping them out.
* GoodIsNotSoft: A sane enemy would rather face Agni than Chandra, but at the end of the day, Agni's duty is to protect the universe and he'll put that above just about anything else--and it would be unwise to forget that.
* HonorBeforeReason: He often refuses to go along with anything that goes against his sense of fairness (e.g. holding TheDreaded's child hostage). It's noted that he's sometimes left out of plans because of this, and that if the others knew just how much Agni's let the enemy walk free, he'd probably be straight up imprisoned.
* HotWings: He can manifest wings of fire to fly around during combat.
* LadyAndKnight: The Knight to Brilith's Lady. As with most things in this series, this eventually gets torn apart.
* LonelyAtTheTop: When Gandharva laments that as a king and enemy to the gods, there's no one he can look to for support, Agni silently wonders who Gandharva thinks a god looks to, in that case. As a whole, Agni doesn't really seem to have any friends, given that Yama was the last one he could openly talk to and they lost that friendship long, long ago.
* TheLostLenore: Long ago, there was a human woman he loved. However, he hesitated to start a relationship with her, and she died before he could resolve himself. [[spoiler:Not so lost, as it turns out, because she's Brilith. The woman referred her is one of her past incarnations.]]
* MoralityPet: A bit of one to Gandharva, who tries to repay Agni's sincerity with sincerity when he can. As of the Frozen Tears arc, his main motivation [[spoiler:now that he accepts Shakuntala as dead]] is to be worthy of the right to fight by his side.
* NiceGuy: Gandharva notes that he's the only decent god. In an universe where pretty much every one is one type of JerkAss or another, Agni stands out as someone who's well and truly nice.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Not all of it's faked, but every once in a while he drops the mask and you remember he is very, very old and unspeakably powerful.
** He makes it clear that more of it is faked than you might expect at first after Gandharva interferes with his confrontation with Sagara -- although he seemed to have been completely taken in by Sagara's sob-story, his conversation with Gandharva, who he views as more of an equal, is much colder and makes it clear he wasn't actually buying any of it.
** It's eventually implied this is how he remains in control of his power. He burns up when he's serious, so he plays the fool both to not overexert Brilith and so that he doesn't accidentally destroy anything in a fit of rage.
* ObliviouslyBeautiful: As a {{Foil}} to Gandharva, who takes advantage of his {{Bishonen}} appearance, Agni's a {{Hunk}} but doesn't seem to realize that women tend to swoon in his presence (at the very least, it's not intentional).
* OddFriendship: With Chandra. Agni a tall, handsome NiceGuy that tries his best to be kind and understanding to his summoner, greatly values human life and tries to solve conflcits with diplomacy before appealing to violence. Chandra is short, looks like a 14-year-old vampire, is completely willing to maim his summoner if she becomes a problem (as he has advised Agni several times to do with Brilith), doesn't give a shit about humanity (or at least not about individual lives) and has an attack-first-ask-second approach to conflict, particularly if it involves suras. Even their fighting styles mirror each other's: Agni is offense-based, Chandra's powers are mostly of the support kind. Despite all this, Agni is shown at the beginning of season three to hang out around Chandra and Laila [[spoiler:when his relationship with Brilith goes south]]. They also have a fairly good amount of teamwork and seem to respect each other's opinions, even if they disagree about (many) things.
* OneTrueLove: With Brilith, though with a lot of complicated feelings involved. See her section for more details.
* OnlySaneMan: He's just about the only player who doesn't have a major grudge and/or isn't completely dismissive of one side, and therefore tends to act as mediator. As soon as he's out of the picture, expect arguments to break out.
* PlayingWithFire: He is the God of fire.
* ThePrankster: He's fond of playing jokes on people.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: As a god, Agni could do whatever he wanted and no one would be allowed to complain. Because this is Agni, though, he tries to be as fair as possible and avoids jumping straight to distrusting or using people, in sharp contrast to Chandra. It's little wonder Leez despises Chandra but has no issue cooperating with Agni.
* ResurrectiveImmortality: As a god, he has this. He's died at least a few times by Gandharva's hands in the past.
* SingleTargetSexuality: [[spoiler:He's "betrothed" to a human, meaning that her soul will constantly be reincarnated--currently in the form of Brilith. This has been a constant source of grief, seeing as how it never ends well for either of them, but he still can't let go of her.]]
* TragicBromance: What his relationship with Gandharva was shaping up to be, at least at first. Him being a god and Gandharva being a nastika - and a king, at that - made it difficult for said bromance to even ''exist'' at first. Their allegiances at the present time also put them at odds, no matter how clear it is that neither wants things to be the way they are. Gandharva finally making up his mind in season three may put them on the road to avert it, if he manages to truly earn Agni's trust.
** Backstory-wise, them being leading members of enemy species was not even the cherry of the cake. Season 3 flashbacks reveal that Agni [[spoiler:despised Gandharva the most of all the gods, and only gave up on killing him for Menaka's sake. It seems his hatred calmed down at some point before the current time, which only makes his current conflict with Gandharva even more tragic to behold: despite the fact that Agni decided to spare his life and to stick to this decision even after Menaka passed away, despite the fact that Gandharva truly respects him, despite them ''not wanting it'', he and Gandharva ''still'' end up opposing each other.]]
* WalkingShirtlessScene: In his human guise, he would wear a hooded sweatshirt. Once he reveals himself to the public, he ditches it entirely.
* WorthyOpponent: To Gandharva. It got into some really convoluted and complex frenemy territory maaaaaany centuries ago, and just keeps getting more... solid.

The God of Sky. He was appointed to be the king of the gods by the Primeval Gods.
----
* BrokenPedestal: Very downplayed among humans, but here. According to [[TheWikiRule the wiki]], Indra was previously seen as benevolent, but refused to answer a single summon since the Cataclysm. He's still the second most popular god, just behind Visnu, though.
* {{Hypocrite}}: At least according to Manasvin.
* JerkassGod: Among the gods seen mocking Agni for empathizing with humans in flashbacks. Manasvin's words in a flashback also hint he's this. Keep in mind that said words grouped Indra with Varuna and Kubera, the greatest sura killer and the one who killed Ananta, respectively. We know nothing of Indra's actions, but to be put under the same umbrella as these two gods, he must not be an angel.

The God of Light. [[spoiler:During the Cataclysm, he provided Saha On with an oracle. The contents of the oracle are currently unknown.]]

* GodIsGood: At the very least, based off flashbacks and mentions of him, he's one of the only gods who sympathizes with Agni's compassion and believes in humanity's autonomy.
** ''However'', he refused Saha's three attempts at summoning; having Surya around could probably be of great help, even more with Saha as his summoner. Had Surya accepted, [[spoiler:who knows if Saha would have even died]]. So yeah, Surya is no Kali, but he's no Agni, either.
* GoodIsNotSoft: You know the device Laila received in season three? He created it. And used it to hand Chandra his ass. The catch? Said device deals damage based on how much the target ''repents'' their sins. Agni even calls it unreasonable. To this day, merely seeing it makes Chandra afraid. Surya may be nice (for a god), but he's not to be trifled with.

[[folder:Chandra]]
!!Chandra
!!!Jurisdiction: Nature, Source Attribute: Darkness
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kubera_chandra.png]]

The God of Darkness. He was summoned during the Cataclysm, but accidentally killed his summoner by using up their lifespan because the rules of summoning had changed.
----
* AntiHero: Utterly ruthless and unpleasant, but there's no denying that at the end of the day, he's out to do his duty.
* CastingAShadow: As the God of Darkness.
* ColdEquation: Oh, ''yes''. Chandra very much upholds this mentality, which is one of the reasons he's so unpleasant; he's very much willing to sacrifice the few to save the many. Case in point, when Shess goes berserk due to a psychological transcendental in season three, he's completely fine with [[spoiler:letting Leny die]] to bring him back, as an out-of-control stage four Rakshasa in the middle of a human city isn't quite great.
* CreepyGood: Face it, few of the people he's defending would volunteer to spend a whole hour near him without other reasons, god or not. Chandra. Is. Creepy.
* CreepyShadowedUnderEyes: Guy looks like somebody who doesn't know the meaning of the word "sleep".
* DudeWheresMyRespect: He's rather frustrated that Laila doesn't treat him like a god, whereas even Agni gets respect. It completely flies over his head that her treatment of him is very much a result of [[JerkassGod his treatment of her]] [[AMillionIsAStatistic (and everybody else)]].
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Eerie to the point of downright creepy.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: [[spoiler:Seen kissing Laila, shirt unbuttoned, approximately 5 minutes after she summoned him. When Claude interrupts them, he calls him a "lower life form" and threatens him. All of this happens within ''three panels''.]]
* HiddenDepths: [[spoiler:When Laila obtains a weapon that harms those who feel guilt over their sins, ''Chandra'' of all people is notably afraid.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: How ''dare'' Laila not swoon over him when all he did was to kill her mentor and not even blink about it. And ''of course'' he has the right to despise Gandharva for killing humans and not giving a shit about it.
** On a lesser note, Chandra wastes no opportunity to criticise [[SingleTargetSexuality Agni]] for being too lenient towards his summoner and actually caring about her opinons, when Chandra himself is completely in denial over how much Laila despises him.
** He doesn't spare two fucks about individual human lives, but dislikes Leez for not being "pious enough"; keep in mind that she only adopted said stance after seeing this very attitude in several gods and nastikas.
* JerkassGod: Chandra embodies everything that people (those who know, at least) hate about gods: callous, unempathetic, and believes AMillionIsAStatistic. He's even a jerk to his ''summoner'', although less in comparison to others. It must be said, however, that compared to a few (*cough* Brahma *cough*) that not even ''try'' to stall the universe's end, Chandra is almost a saint. That alone should tell you all you need to know about gods in the ''Kubera'' universe.
* JerkassHasAPoint: When he calls out Ruche's [[GlorySeeker bragging]], he points out that [[spoiler:Saha should have been protected]].
-->'''Chandra:''' So basically you want me to see you as a hero for saving people? ({{Beat}}) I appreciate your efforts, but you failed to protect the most important thing...
* LackOfEmpathy: He thinks Laila should just "get over" the fact he accidentally killed her mentor during the Cataclysm. He also suggests that Agni should just let Brilith die and get a new summoner.
* MadGod: He's a bit unhinged. Compared to others in the setting (looking at you, [[OmnicidalManiac Kali]]), however, he's as good as you get of a god. [[NiceGuy Agni]] is, after all, the exception to the rule.
* NotSoAboveItAll: As is noted, he tries to be TheSpock and usually succeeds, but he loses sight of this whenever something catches his interest (e.g. Laila, as he's in denial over her true feelings towards him).
* OddFriendship: See Agni's entry.
* PunyEarthlings: He considers humans to be lower lifeforms. Said attitude is the root for Leez's despisal of him (and every god or sura that holds the same opinion).
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Downplayed. He's a jerk, but he's not evil.
* TheSpock: Motivated by cold logic, unlike the more sentimental Agni. Or so it seems; Chandra's no robot, and has feelings of his own that sometimes guides his decisions - he only accepted Laila's summoning because she interests him, after all.
* SupportPartyMember: While he does have offensive transcendentals of his own, it's more effective if he amplifies others'.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: With Agni, at times. For the most part, Agni doesn't mind Chandra, but they're on opposite ends of the empathy spectrum and it shows. Also, Chandra kind of ruined his life and is unapologetic about it, so there's that. However, they are also friends of a kind; see Agni's entry under OddFriendship.
* WalkingSpoiler: That he has a role at all reveals that Laila ends up summoning him.

----
* ByTheBookCop: Other gods are constantly harassing him to extend the lives of favored mortals, and he is constantly denying them. It's not that he's cruel, he just wants everyone to follow the rules.
* DeathTakesAHoliday: After Agni beats him up [[spoiler:to extend Brilith's lifespan]], he goes on strike, forcing his assistants to work extra hard.
* EverybodyHatesHades: Averted. Yama is stern and unfriendly but treated with no less respect than the others (aside from his job perhaps being a thankless one) and is portrayed sympathetically. It's clear he has compassion and that's exactly why he's so strict: it'd be painfully unfair to favour one human over another in his case.
* RedHerring: He's not the god Claude made a deal with, though that should have been obvious taking into account Yama's personality, as said deal went against everything he stands for.

Varuna, Vayu, Indra, Surya, Chandra); ''Created Gods'' (Yama, Asvins, Marut)[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* NeverASelfMadeWoman: There's an element of this in her kingship, and she seems aware of this, too. She's only king because Vasuki backs her (even if he's currently in his female form, the male one is his "default" one, as seen in aa flashback: when playing rock-paper-scissors with Ananta, Vasuki's a guy). Previously, all the power she had stemmed from the fact that she made herself the direct subordinate of two kings - both male. It's not exactly the "woman" thing that keeps her from achieving power on her own, but rather the fact that she's weak, and suras refuse follow that.


* EpicFail: She was set to this, at least according to Sagara. Interestingly, everything went according to her plan, except the climax: when she [[spoiler: went to Sagara's lair with the implied goal of stealing Ananta's power, the nastika made it very clear to her that she would never be able to do this. So, basically, Asha failure was so big that stopped her from ''trying'']].



* HeartbrokenBadass: Why else would she be so hellbent on bringing Ananta back? After his death, the notoriously power hungry Sagara managed to become a king's lover and then king herself. If he returns, she'll lose her throne, but that doesn't seem to bother her at all. Ananta's death affected her so greatly that she simply refuses to accept an universe without him.

Added DiffLines:

* InadequateInheritor: From the perspective of most of the Ananta clan, she's this. We don't know ''exactly'' why, but, save for Vasuki, not a single Ananta nastika backs her reign. There are many possible candidates for this:
** She's a bad king. But how exactly is never stated, and this shouldn't quite bother most of them that much, as Gandharva also sucked as a king and those that thought so simply left the clan. The whole Ananta thing is madness, yeah, but the suras aren't exactly known for being wise.
** She broke the traditional succession and usurped the throne. That makes sense at first... until one remembers that the, huh, "rightful" king actually wants her to have the throne. And it's not exactly the first time the Ananta clan went through an unconventional route to fill vacant leadership: after Ananta died, Vasuki should have succeeded him, but Manasvin did so, as he's stronger in male form than Vasuki is in female form. However, Vasuki only refused to adopt male form because he wanted Manasvin to rule to benefit Sagara especifically. No one seems to have had a problem with that, though.
** [[MightMakesRight She's weak]]. The strongest contender, given the way the sura world works. As stated above, sura society is driven by power. Kings like Gandharva, who was a crazy psycho and a brutal tyrant at his peak, are admired as rulers by several suras - including Sagara herself - not for their leadership, but for their power. And, as stated by a few characters, Sagara is weak for a nastika. The Ananta clan may see her as this because, as a king weaker than the others, she makes the clan seem weak as a whole. That and pride, too: having a weaker being above you in any sort of hierarchy must not sit well with any sura, even more so with the notoriously prideful nastikas.

* CoolBigSis: Averted in every possible way in regards to Leez. Asha goes out of her way to be the exact opposite of this.



* [[spoiler: DomesticAbuser: While not in a romantic relationship with Leez, many of their later scenes together are eerily similar to a real life example of this. Asha leaves Leez completely isolated from others under pretext of helping her, constantly destroys her confidence by accusing of her being useless and accuses her of PlayingTheVictimCard when as it becomes more and more evident how awfully she’s behaving. The situation eventually degenerates to the point Leez throws herself off a cliff multiple times trying to become a better fighter in order to try and get Asha’s respect. Asha’s responds by remarking on how lucky Leez has it because her bracelet allows her to learn a skill so easily. She ends up trying to murder Leez. Twice. ]]

to:

* DidntSeeThatComing: She's the "that" that Sagara didn't notice beforehand. As a human mage, she's so unbelievably outclassed in her regards to her sura opponents that Sagara, a nastika, didn't even bother with trying to stop her. And she's not wrong: in terms of power, compared to others in the setting, Asha is nothing. But the whole thing about ''Hoti Visnu'' does not revolve around power, does it?
* DissonantSerenity: At first, at least. Asha hardly ever changes her expression no matter what's going on around her - but, as the story progresses, this is increasingly subverted. She throws this completely out of the window close to Season Two's ending, when she learns that Yuta was only helping her because he thought it would be the best for Leez - she ''flips out completely'', going as far as scream out loud. How many times before that moment did Asha snapped like that?
* [[spoiler: DomesticAbuser: While not in a romantic relationship with Leez, many of their later scenes together are eerily similar to a real life example of this.

* InnocenceLost: The "Asha" arc, which focuses on her past, showcases how this happened to her. At first, no matter how smart or talented she was, Asha was still just another little girl. The whole Carte debacle - and all the shit she went through related to it - destroyed that child.



%%* ItsAllAboutMe: She doesn't care who or how many she kills to gain power.

Added DiffLines:

** However, she was also on the receiving end of this once. [[spoiler:Visnu could have healed her arm, but never did it, and simply as a punishment for a relatively small transgression. Honestly, almost everything in regard to her relationship with Visnu has some element of Asha suffering from this]].


Added DiffLines:

* LikeFatherLikeDaughter: Much to her mother's worry.

Added DiffLines:

* BigBadWannabe: Very downplayed in the sense that Asha still presents a very credible threat, but... her character has shades of this. She believes herself to be Visnu's great envoy, the one all his plans were directed to, and the greatest [[TheChessmaster chessmaster]] on the board. The climax of season two completely disabuses her of this notion. [[spoiler:She was implied to be aiming the whole time to capture Ananta's power for her own the moment Sagara ressurrected him. So, she walks into Sagara's lair with the hopes of doing this - and Sagara laughs at her face. It's made then ''very clear'' that a mere human would never be even ''capable'' of this, so big is Ananta's power. She's quick to point to her that the whole time Asha was little more than a pawn, and that her Kubera-killing contributed to Sagara's own plans, not hers. She's so hopelessly outmatched that Sagara doesn't even bother with trying to kill her - which ends up being a mistake, fair enough, as Asha is able to cast ''Hoti Visnu''. However, even this ace in the whole of hers looks more like a child throwing a tantrum than anything else, and doesn't even do that much harm in the end. Yes, Sagara and her allies ended up disappearing for seven years, but Asha herself suffered the same, and now Sagara is back, ready to start everything all over again. All in all, she didn't suffer much damage as much as a setback. Not to mention Lorraine, who was also affected, and returned with the sole goal of avenging Saha. Plus, there is the fact that all of those that were affected by the spell are implied to have been given access to knowledge regarding the future, which was Asha's main strength.]] So yes, it's undeniable how much influence Asha has on the story overall, but it's not nearly as much as she believes. Off course, Currygom being Currygom, this could still be completely turned on its head.

* DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: As a child, he badly injured his mother without thinking. It's also mentioned in the author afterword that he blew Shess's head off a few times while growing up (even before he knew Shess could survive that), although it's unclear if that was actually unintentional.



* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: When tired of Agni's attempts at ObfuscatingStupidity, he threatens to take Agwen and flounce out of the planet (and conflict) altogether.



* TheMourningAfter: It's implied she hasn't been in another relationship since the Cataclysm. She does mention to Shess that she'd be happy to find a nice man, but the addendum of how it's fine now that her dad isn't around to kill her boyfriend again suggests she's still reeling from the trauma.



* BeingEvilSucks: Saying they are evil is very much an undeserved generalization and simplification of a very complicated reality. However, most of them normaly partake in things that are ''very'' questionable, and it comes at a price. They are the most powerful species in the universe. As a whole, however, they cannot avoid the fact that they must devoure each other to survive, they're despised by pretty much everyone else because of their antics, and to top it off, when Visnu separated the realms at the Cataclysm, they got the short end of the stick, while the puny, insignificant humans they screwed over and over again remained in their much less hostile realm. Billions of years of doing whatever they wanted and what they got out of it? Their numbers are dwindling, the few remaining are getting weaker and weaker over time, their clans are being destroyed, and their realm is the one most affected by the Taraka attack. And those billions of years weren't flowers, either. Losing children, friends and partners - or even one's own life - are every day things. One can die simply by angering the wrong foe, and even if they are killed for no reason at all, unless one is strong enough to seek vengeance, there is literally nothing to be done. In short, suras operate under a very different set of morals and rules, which generally put them at odds with everyone else, and makes life in their society in general utterly ''suck''.

Added DiffLines:

* RedOniBlueOni: Her relationship with Maruna may be seen this way, with Samphati being the unemotional Blue to Maruna's (relatively more) caring Red.

Added DiffLines:

* EmotionsVsStoicism: Her dynamic with Maruna presents an interesting case of this. Samphati's use of the Eye of Perishment made her emotions so numb that her own mother recognizes that she barely has any personality left. Maruna himself is not exactly open to expressing his feelings, either; however, when put together, both of them represent the two sides of this trope. Maruna is driven by his loyalty to his family: he refuses to kill Kasak because he could know about Kalavinka's whereabouts, despite the fact that the half-dragon is a ''major'' obstacle to their plans. Samphati, on the other hand, is cold, uncaring and unemotional. However, they also invert this: despite loving his siblings, Maruna puts his clan before them, and thus is willing to temporarily maim [[spoiler:Yuta]] if that's what it takes for him to go to the sura realm. Samphati, on the other hand, only lost her emotions because of a burning desire for revenge, and is willing to sacrifice the chance of her king ever waking up to get it - and she's fully aware of how bad is the situation of the clan ever since Garuda went comatose.


* BestServedCold: She waited ''300 years'' for her chance. [[spoiler:And it was denied her]].



* TheBully: A weird, downplayed example of this towards the Ananta clan. She's surprisingly respectful towards Sagara, even bowing to her when they first meet - most of ''Sagara's clan members'' don't have this much respect for her, and Samphati comes from an enemy clan. On the other hand, she treats the Ananta rakshasas following Sagara like dirt, going out of her way to rub their uselessness and her power in their face, aware that, since she's a 5th stage rakshasa and necessary to the plan, they can't do anything to her. It's brief, but she did it for no reason other than she could. And it hit them. Hard.



* ItsPersonal: Boy howdy, yes. She ''hates'' her sister's killer with a passion that not even the victim's own mother (Akasha) matches. It wouldn't be too farfetched to say that hate has driven her crazy - and, if she's not nuts yet, she's well on the path to be. As Akasha herself states, Samphati's hatred for the killer is the last thing holding the little pieces of personality she still has together.



* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Her sura form is a giant winged humanoid that's naked save for the chest.
* ATasteOfTheirOwnMedicine: What she inteds to inflict on [[spoiler:Yuta]]. He killed someone dear to her, she'll kill someone dear to him - that's right, poor [[spoiler:Leez]] got another target on her back.



* NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist[=/=]WellIntentionedExtremist: Weeeeell... Akasha blurrs the line. She's desperate to find Yuta and Kalavinka, as one of them is - she hopes - the key to wake Garuda up from his comatose state. If simply bringing them to the sura realm doesn't work, however, she's perfectly willing to kill them - a plan most Garuda nastikas are not fine with. But, well, given the awful situation of the clan, can you really blame her for taking drastic measures to wake up its most powerful nastika? She's only thinking of helping her people. ''However'', Sagara implies that one of the reasons Akasha agreed to an alliance with her was to learn her "trick" to become king. So there's that. And Samphati's words in a flashback support this too. Given the mechanics of the Power of the Name, there is a chance Garuda will die if his name-holder kick the bucket - something that didn't bother Samphati ''at all'' when trying to kill one of the two possible candidates (and the only one whose location was known). So, yeah, until we see more of Akasha herself, it's hard to say.

If simply bringing them to the sura realm doesn't work, however, she's perfectly willing to kill them - a plan most Garuda nastikas are not fine with. But, well, given the awful situation of the clan, can you really blame her for taking drastic measures to wake up its most powerful nastika? She's only thinking of helping her people. ''However'', Sagara implies that one of the reasons Akasha agreed to an alliance with her was to learn her "trick" to become king. So there's that. And Samphati's words in a flashback support this too. Given the mechanics of the Power of the Name, there is a chance Garuda will die if his name-holder kick the bucket - something that didn't bother Samphati ''at all'' when trying to kill one of the two possible candidates (and the only one whose location was known). So, yeah, until we see more of Akasha herself, it's hard to say.
