!James Holden
'''Played by:''' Steven Strait

De facto captain of the ''Rocinante''. Originally from Earth. First appearance: ''Leviathan Wakes''.

* TheAce
** BrokenAce: After the events of ''Leviathan's Wake'', and suffers through it for most of ''Caliban's War''. He does get better though.
* TheCaptain
* {{Hypocrite}}: His "no secrets ever" policy doesn't seem to apply to himself -- as in ''Nemesis Games'' when he gets annoyed with Monica Stuart for mentioning [[spoiler:the theft of the final protomolecule sample]] on television during his interview.
* InformationWantsToBeFree: His primary method of messing things up for the bad guys (and sometimes everyone else).
* MustHaveCaffeine: He's really fond of his state of the art coffeemaker aboard the ''Rocinante''.
* PaperThinDisguise: In ''Caliban's War'', he has a beard and registers the ''Rocinante'' as a humanitarian aid ship. Avasarala is not fooled for a moment.
-->''"Well, thank God he didn't [[ClarkKenting put on a pair of glasses]], we might never have figured it out."''
* RelationshipUpgrade: With Naomi by the end of the first book.
* RightlySelfRighteous: Acts rather sanctimonous towards other characters and believes he is always in the right no matter what.
* SpannerInTheWorks: Has a reputation for this by ''Caliban's War''. Lampshaded by Avasarala.
-->''"If he realizes he's being watched, he'll start broadcasting pictures of all our Ganymede sources or something. Do not underestimate his capacity to fuck things up."''
** Does this again in ''Cibola Burn'' [[spoiler:by ''not'' acting how Avasarala and Fred Johnson wanted him to act.]]
* UnwittingPawn: Transmitting the details on the attacks on the ''Canterbury'' and the ''Donnager'' was something [[spoiler:Protogen]] relied on to provoke a war between Mars and Earth.
* WhatTheHellHero: He gets this on a pretty regular basis, as his tendency to broadcast anything and everything he knows to the solar system at large has started at least two open conflicts between Earth, Mars and the outer planets.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be The Protomolecule?]]
* YouAreInCommandNow: After Captain [=McDowell=] is killed during the initial attack on the ''Canterbury''. Retains the position aboard the ''Rocinante''.

!Naomi Nagata
'''Played by:''' Dominique Tipper

The ''Rocinante'''s resident engineer and technical expert. First appearance: ''Leviathan Wakes''.

* AlliterativeName
* AmbiguouslyBrown

* WhatTheHellHero: Usually the one to let Holden hear it when he's losing his way.

!Amos Burton
'''Played by:''' Wes Chatham

The ''Rocinante'''s mechanic. First appearance: ''Leviathan Wakes''.

* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Torward Naomi.
* {{Badass}}: The ''Rocinante'''s go-to guy when it comes to combat.
* BaldOfAwesome
* BerserkButton: Hurting or endangering a child is the quickest way to get Amos to beat you senseless with a can of chicken or blow your head off with his automatic shotgun.
* BrutalHonesty: His preferred method of conversation. He says what he means, whether you like it or not.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Implicated in several murders, but never convicted. The novella ''The Churn'' goes into more detail about his backstory.
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler:Gets shot in the head in ''Caliban's War''. Turns out it was a rubber bullet.]]
* TheEngineer: Actually fits this trope better than Naomi, the ship's actual engineer. He's a mix of The Combat Engineer and The Mechanic.
* GentleGiant: Usually. More than one character remarks that he doesn't look like a killer at all -- more like a friendly repairman or a schoolteacher.
* TheNicknamer
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: His auto-shotgun.
* TheSociopath: Seems likely as of ''Nemesis Games'', where we have him as a POV character and he often behaves in a way that he thinks emulates standard social behavior and doesn't seem to understand why people have emotional reactions to anything. See TokenEvilTeammate.
* SonOfAWhore
* TokenEvilTeammate
-->'''Naomi''': He's using you as his external, aftermarket conscience.
-->'''Holden''': No, he's not.
-->'''Naomi''': It's what he does. Finds someone who has a sense of ethics and follows their lead.

The ''Rocinante'''s pilot, originally from Mars' Mariner Valley, though he exaggerates his southern drawl for effect. First appearance: ''Leviathan Wakes''.

* AcePilot: Plugger type.

* AmbiguouslyBrown
* DisappearedDad: [[spoiler:A twist, as he's the disappeared dad to a child he doesn't know about on Mars.]]
* HighSpeedMissileDodge: A ''master''.
* ImprobablePilotingSkills
* NiceGuy: Probably the friendliest and most relatable of the ''Rocinante'''s crew.

[[/folder]]
[[folder: Allies]]

!Detective Miller
'''Played by:''' ThomasJane

A PrivateEye hired by Jules-Pierre Mao to locate his rebellious daughter Juliette. Later joins Holden and his crew to get to the bottom of the conspiracy behind her kidnapping [[spoiler:and death]]. First appearance: ''Leviathan Wakes''.

* DeathSeeker: Thanks to his SanitySlippage.
* FireForgedFriends: Averted. If anything, Miller and Holden like each other ''less'' by the end of ''Leviathan Wakes''. [[spoiler: Though after Miller's final HeroicSacrifice in ''Cibola Burn'', Holden regrets not having made an effort to mend the gap between them.]]
* HardboiledDetective
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Merges with Eros at the end of ''Leviathan Wakes'' to help Julie steer it into Venus.]]

* LoveBeforeFirstSight: Toward Julie.
* MouthOfSauron: [[spoiler: Serves as the protomolecule's primary method of communicating with Holden as of the end of ''Caliban's War''.]]
* NiceHat: Can't be a HardboiledDetective without one. Holden doesn't actually like the hat.
* RobotBuddy: [[spoiler:Briefly, at the end of ''Cibola Burn''. He inhabits one of the protomolecule masters' mining robots and helps Holden and Elvi stop the alien defense systems. The robot also keeps Miller's mannerisms and voice.]]
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:He doesn't slip that badly compared to other examples of this trope, but he's still not quite sane, especially after his hallucinations of Julie get more detailed and creepy.]]
* VirtualGhost: [[spoiler:In ''Abaddon's Gate'' and ''Cibola Burn''.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Gets one from Holden for [[spoiler:shooting Dresden when they find him.]]

!Fred Johnson
'''Played by:''' Chad Coleman

A former Earth military colonel and current leader of the Outer Planets Alliance. First appearance: ''Leviathan Wakes''.

* TheButcher: He's known as The Butcher of Anderson Station. Fred is a rare example of TheButcher also being a ReasonableAuthorityFigure.
* CoolOldGuy
* DefectorFromDecadence
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
* RebelLeader: A reasonable one, which almost gets him assassinated in ''Nemesis Games''.
* TranquilFury: When he gets angry, even Holden finds him downright terrifying and has no difficulty believing he lives up to his nickname.
* YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters

!Praxidike "Prax" Meng

A botanist living on Ganymede with his daughter Mei. Enlists the help of Holden's crew to find her when she's kidnapped. First appearance: ''Caliban's War''.

* ActionSurvivor
* TheChewToy: Loses his daughter, spends weeks on the verge of starvation on Ganymede, and [[spoiler:the galaxy thinks he's a wife-beater and pedophile thanks to Earthgov's smear campaign.]]
* DespairEventHorizon: Spends most of the second book deciding whether to cross it.
* EarnYourHappyEnding

* OddFriendship: With Bobbie.
* ScrewPolitenessImASenior

-->'''Avasarala''': ''[[spoiler:...cunt.]]''
* TheSnarkKnight
* [[TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask The Woman Wearing The Ambassador's Mask]]
* WouldNotHurtAChild
-->''"Not even when it's the right thing to do. You'd be surprised how often it's hurt my political career."''

!Gunnery Sergeant Roberta "Bobbie" Draper

A Martian Marine stationed on Ganymede whose squad was killed by a mysterious unkillable monster. She joins up with Avasarala to get revenge and closure. First appearance: ''Caliban's War''.

* ActionGirl
* AmazonianBeauty / StatuesqueStunner: Oh yeah. Very curvy, ''very'' muscular and well over six feet tall. Holden thinks she looks like a Polynesian beach bunny blown up to 150% normal size in Photoshop.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Her ancestry is mainly Samoan.
* {{Badass}}: The biggest in the series, and the ''Rocinante'' crew knows it.
-->'''Holden''': ''"Scares you too, does she?"''
-->'''Amos''': ''"Look. When it comes to scrapes, I'm what you might call a talented amateur. But I've gotten a good look at that woman in and out of that fancy mechanical shell she wears. She's a pro. We're not playing the same sport."''
* EleventhHourRanger: Along with Avasarala, in ''Caliban's War''.

! Carlos "Bull" Baca

Originally intended to be the commanding officer of the ''Behemoth'' during its expedition to the Ring, Bull is instead screwed by the politics surrounding the voyage and is demoted to security chief before it even starts. First appearance: ''Abaddon's Gate''.

* CowboyCop: Frequently bends or breaks Ashford's rules and is sometimes quite ruthless, such as when he spaces a petty drug dealer to "lay things on the line" for the Belters.
* DaChief
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:His last stand in the shaft, and arguably everything he does after the slowdown, as every moment he spends doing his job makes it less and less likely that his pulverized spine will regrow properly.]]
* IncurableCoughOfDeath: [[spoiler:Develops one after his spine is broken. In a twist, he actually coughs less in the buildup to his death.]]
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler:His spine is broken, leaving him quadriplegic after Ring Station lowers the maximum speed within the slow zone. He chooses to keep doing his job, knowing that his health is failing more by the hour.]]
* ManlyTears / NotSoStoic: Holden is surprised to see him cry [[spoiler:when he hears that Ashford killed Sam.]]
* PreMortemOneLiner: As he throws a couple of grenades toward a loyalist in PoweredArmor.
-->'''Bull''': Here, hold this.
* TakingYouWithMe
* UndyingLoyalty: To Fred Johnson.

!Annushka "Anna" Volovodov

A priest who joins a number of religious leaders traveling with the first fleet to approach the Ring. First appearance: ''Abaddon's Gate''.

* ActualPacifist: Even toward Clarissa Mao.
* GoodShepherd
* LipstickLesbian: Has a wife and daughter back on Earth.
* OutgrownSuchSillySuperstitions: She feels that the universe will never be too large or alien to render a religious interpretation obsolete, but is aware of the possibility that others will turn from faith in a higher power as a result of the Ring's portal to other worlds.

!Monica Stuart

A reporter who accompanies the ships that cross through the ring, and who documents the events and conflict on the ''Behemoth''. She later gets Holden to join her investigation on Tycho Station in ''Nemesis Games''. First appearance: ''Abaddon's Gate''.

* DamselInDistress: Gets captured by [[spoiler:the renegade OPA faction]] in ''Nemesis Games''.
* GoingForTheBigScoop: Her investigation into the missing ships in ''Nemesis Games''.
* HotScoop
* IntrepidReporter

!Elvi Okoye

A biologist that came to New Terra as part of RCE's scientific expedition. First appearance: ''Cibola Burn''.

* CelebCrush: She has one on Holden pretty much as soon as she sees him.
* HotScientist
* YouNeedToGetLaid: Fayez offers this as a solution to her crush on Holden. It works.

!Dimitri Havelock

Detective Miller's partner aboard Ceres Station. First appearance: ''Leviathan Wakes''.

* AscendedExtra: A minor character in ''Leviathan Wakes''. Returns four books later as a POV character.
* HeelFaceTurn: It takes a while, but he finally turns against Murtry and helps Naomi -- who he took prisoner in the first place -- escape back to the ''Rocinante''.
* FantasticRacism: He's a decent guy, but he's shunned and disrespected by the primarily-Belter population of Ceres Station because he's Earthborn. Eventually leads to him having to leave the station before things reach a boiling point.
** Played with in ''Cibola Burn'', where his experience on Ceres and working for Murtry have left him with his own distrust of Belters; ultimately, he's a better person than he tells himself he is, and frequently works to subvert the Belter-Earther tensions aboard the ''Edward Israel''.
* HeelRealization: Later in ''Cibola Burn''.
* NaiveNewcomer
* PunchClockVillain: He's not a bad guy, but he's a pushover who tends to find himself intimidated by the likes of Murtry and Koenen.
* PutOnABus: By Miller at the beginning of ''Leviathan Wakes'', to protect him.
** TheBusCameBack: As of ''Cibola Burn''. Amusingly, he's been part of nearly every mercenary group the crew has encountered, from Eros to Ganymede -- it just took four books for him to actually run into the crew of the ''Roci''.
* SixthRanger: To the ''Rocinante'' crew toward the end of ''Cibola Burn''.
* TookALevelInBadass: Shows himself to be more than competent in combat during the later chapters of ''Cibola Burn'' when he helps Naomi and Basia escape the ''Edward Israel''. Granted, this was combat against amateurs he trained himself, but he's still seen his share of action and is much more confident than he was when he was partnered with Miller.

!Basia Merton

A family man and colonist on Ilos/New Terra, in league with a local radical faction planning to drive away the corporate interests arriving to stake their claim on the newly inhabited world. First appearance: ''Caliban's War''.

* AscendedExtra: Like Havelock, he appeared briefly in an earlier book and returns in ''Cibola Burn'' as a POV character.
* TheAtoner: After he realizes how many people have died as a result of his actions he gives himself up into Holden's custody and eventually helps rescue Naomi.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Comes to deeply regret assisting in the destruction of the landing platform and the shootout with Murtry's security forces.
* OverprotectiveDad: Especially toward his teenage daughter.
* YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters: Though he eventually realizes he's the former.

!Erich

A former criminal henchman from Amos' past. As of ''Nemesis Games'', he controls most of Baltimore. First appearance: ''The Churn''.

* AffablyEvil
* FromNobodyToNightmare
* FriendlyEnemy: With Amos. They're both amiable to one another, but they also keep their finger on the button/trigger at all times when dealing with each other. By the end of ''Nemesis Games'', they have a sort of mutual trust but both of them know there's nothing more they have to say to each other.
* RedRightHand: His withered arm.

[[/folder]]
[[folder: Antagonists (Unmarked Spoilers Ahead)]]

!Jules-Pierre Mao

CEO of Mao-Kwikowski Industries. The search for his daughter Juliette sets off the plot of ''Leviathan Wakes''.

* BigBad: Of ''Caliban's War''.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive
* FateWorseThanDeath: Avasarala promises that she'll make him watch as she dismantles his legacy bit by bit.
* TheManBehindTheMan
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney
* SmugSnake

!Sadavir Errinwright

The UN undersecretary of executive administration. Avasarala's boss.

* BigBadFriend
* TheChessmaster
* InUniverseNickname: Avasarala calls him "the bobble-head." [[RefugeInAudacity To his face.]]

!Admiral Augusto Nguyen

Earth admiral straining at the leash for a war against Mars.

* GeneralRipper / InsaneAdmiral
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: The protomolecule monsters he intended to use against Mars are used against his own ship.
* KilledMidSentence

!Dr. Strickland / Carlos Merrian

The doctor responsible for kidnapping Prax's daughter and conducting experiments on children using the alien protomolecule.

* MadScientist
* TheSociopath
* TheyCalledMeMad: Fired from his previous position due to his questionable ethics and later signed on with Protogen because they wouldn't care.
* WouldHurtAChild
* YourHeadAsplode: Thanks to Amos' auto-shotgun.

!Melba Koh / Clarissa Mao

The daughter of Jules-Pierre Mao, who assumes an alias in order to sabotage the fleet headed toward the Ring and frame James Holden for the disaster.

* AvengingTheVillain: She has an extremely skewed view of her father, and is trying to get revenge on Holden for putting him in jail.
* BioAugmentation: The glands in her mouth give her SuperStrength and enhanced speed, but leave her exhausted for a time afterward.
* DaddysLittleVillain
* DarkActionGirl
* EasilyForgiven: Understandably averted, considering that she's at least a little bit insane, directly responsible for the deaths of hundreds of people (several by her own hand in order to cover up her sabotage), and personally tried to murder Naomi. The only reason any of the ''Roci'' crew don't blow her head off instead of taking her back to trial is because Anna made them promise not to, and they owed her a favor.
* HeelRealization: Starts with her regret at the murder of one of her engineering team, and eventually extends to the realization that no one is responsible for her father's fate except for her father.
** HeelFaceTurn
* WaifFu: Especially in ''Nemesis Games'', where she's considerably more gaunt thanks to her years in an underground prison, but is still able to use her glands to rip people apart with her bare hands when necessary.

!Murtry

The security chief sent by Royal Charter Energy to establish the company's claim on Ilus / New Terra. Serves as the principal antagonist of ''Cibola Burn''.

* ColonelKilgore: The first thing he does when he arrives on Ilus is to shoot one of the colonists for threatening him.
* TheSociopath: Miller says as much, telling Holden that Murtry is just using the situation on Ilus to do all the sadistic, trigger-happy stuff he's always wanted to.
* UndyingLoyalty: To RCE, apparently. When it becomes fairly certain that everyone on the planet, including himself, is going to die, he actively interferes with Havelock and the ''Rocinante'' crew's attempts to find a way for everyone to survive. He just wants a shelter with the RCE logo on it dropped so the company can maintain its claim when they send the next crew.

!Marco Inaros

Leader of the Free Navy who has a history with Naomi. First appearance ''Nemesis Games''.

* CrazyJealousGuy: Even while he says he doesn't care about Holden, he comes up with some pretty elaborate plans for getting rid of the guy.
* ManipulativeBastard: He tries very hard to be a MagnificentBastard, but several characters comment that everything he does seems entirely too practiced to come across as anything but slimy.
* MoralSociopathy
* RationalizingTheOverkill
* RebelLeader: A dark version
* UnwittingPawn: For all his planning and boasting, he turns out to be a pawn for Admiral Duarte.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Believes that the discovery of the Rings will make the Belters obsolete, but is willing to kill untold numbers of people to make the point.
* WhyDidYouMakeMeHitYou: More like "Why did you make me hold our son hostage in order to control you, turn our friends against you, and then kidnap you years later?"

!Admiral Duarte

The man behind the Free Navy's uprising -- apparently a Martian Naval officer with designs on controlling the protomolecule.

* BiggerBad: Marco is the main villain of ''Nemesis Games'', but Fred and Holden mention that he isn't the sort of person who could plan such an unprecedented series of attacks. It turns out Duarte is the one truly responsible.
* TheChessmaster: Responsible for much of the conflict in ''Nemesis Games'', and no one is even directly aware of his existence yet.
* TheGhost: Hasn't made a personal appearance yet.
* TheManBehindTheMan: To Marco.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Sauveterre implies that Duarte is willing to dispose of the Belter Free Navy once they've served their purpose.

* BoomHeadshot: [[spoiler:Ashford shoots her in the head for allying with the mutineers.]]
* HeroesWantRedheads: Amos and Alex do, anyway.

Jules-Pierre Mao's daughter. Left behind her family and money to assist in the plight of the outer planets.

* PosthumousCharacter: [[spoiler:The only time we see her alive is in the prologue to ''Leviathan Wakes''.]]
* RapeAsBackstroy: Happened sometime in her past, but exactly when is unclear; it's what moves her to take a class in low gravity jiu jitsu.
* RebelliousPrincess
* MadnessMantra: [[spoiler:''You can't take the Razorback. She is gone and gone and gone.'']]
* SpaceshipGirl: [[spoiler:A pretty nightmarish version of this trope, being the pilot of the protomolecule-infested Eros station. Miller realizes she's in control of Eros due to her MadnessMantra.]]

!Captain Shaddid

Detective Miller's boss; chief of police on Ceres Station.

* DaChief
* DirtyCop

* MauveShirt
* TheMedic
* YourHeadAsplode

!Wei

Murtry's second-in-command. Becomes fast friends with Amos.

* HardboiledDetective
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Merges with Eros at the end of ''Leviathan Wakes'' to help Julie steer it into Venus.]]

* MouthOfSauron: [[spoiler: Serves as the protomolecule's primary method of communicating with Holden as of the end of ''Caliban's War''.]]

* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:He doesn't slip that badly compared to other examples of this trope, but he's still not quite sane, especially after his hallucinations of Julie get more detailed and creepy.]]
* VirtualGhost: [[spoiler:In ''Abaddon's Gate'' and ''Cibola Burn''.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Gets one from Holden for [[spoiler:shooting Dresden when they find him.]]

!Fred Johnson
'''Played by:''' Chad Coleman

* CoolOldGuy
* DefectorFromDecadence
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure

* TranquilFury: When he gets angry, even Holden finds him downright terrifying and has no difficulty believing he lives up to his nickname.
* YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters

* DespairEventHorizon: Spends most of the second book deciding whether to cross it.
* EarnYourHappyEnding
* GenderBlenderName: Obscure enough that his parents didn't know they'd named him after a Greek ''goddess''.

-->''"Not even when it's the right thing to do. You'd be surprised how often it's hurt my political career."''

!Gunnery Sergeant Roberta "Bobbie" Draper

A Martian Marine stationed on Ganymede whose squad was killed by a mysterious unkillable monster. She joins up with Avasarala to get revenge and closure. First appearance: ''Caliban's War''.

* ActionGirl
* AmazonianBeauty / StatuesqueStunner: Oh yeah. Very curvy, ''very'' muscular and well over six feet tall. Holden thinks she looks like a Polynesian beach bunny blown up to 150% normal size in Photoshop.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Her ancestry is mainly Samoan.
* {{Badass}}: The biggest in the series, and the ''Rocinante'' crew knows it.
-->'''Holden''': ''"Scares you too, does she?"''
-->'''Amos''': ''"Look. When it comes to scrapes, I'm what you might call a talented amateur. But I've gotten a good look at that woman in and out of that fancy mechanical shell she wears. She's a pro. We're not playing the same sport."''

! Carlos "Bull" Baca

Originally intended to be the commanding officer of the ''Behemoth'' during its expedition to the Ring, Bull is instead screwed by the politics surrounding the voyage and is demoted to security chief before it even starts. First appearance: ''Abaddon's Gate''.

* CowboyCop: Frequently bends or breaks Ashford's rules and is sometimes quite ruthless, such as when he spaces a petty drug dealer to "lay things on the line" for the Belters.
* DaChief
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:His last stand in the shaft, and arguably everything he does after the slowdown, as every moment he spends doing his job makes it less and less likely that his pulverized spine will regrow properly.]]
* IncurableCoughOfDeath: [[spoiler:Develops one after his spine is broken. In a twist, he actually coughs less in the buildup to his death.]]
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler:His spine is broken, leaving him quadriplegic after Ring Station lowers the maximum speed within the slow zone. He chooses to keep doing his job, knowing that his health is failing more by the hour.]]
* ManlyTears / NotSoStoic: Holden is surprised to see him cry [[spoiler:when he hears that Ashford killed Sam.]]
* PreMortemOneLiner: As he throws a couple of grenades toward a loyalist in PoweredArmor.
-->'''Bull''': Here, hold this.
* TakingYouWithMe
* UndyingLoyalty: To Fred Johnson.
* YouShallNotPass

A priest who joins a number of religious leaders traveling with the first fleet to approach the Ring. First appearance: ''Abaddon's Gate''.

* ActualPacifist: Even toward Clarissa Mao.
* GoodShepherd
* LipstickLesbian: Has a wife and daughter back on Earth.
* OutgrownSuchSillySuperstitions: She feels that the universe will never be too large or alien to render a religious interpretation obsolete, but is aware of the possibility that others will turn from faith in a higher power as a result of the Ring's portal to other worlds.

!Monica Stuart

A reporter who accompanies the ships that cross through the ring, and who documents the events and conflict on the ''Behemoth''. She later gets Holden to join her investigation on Tycho Station in ''Nemesis Games''. First appearance: ''Abaddon's Gate''.

* DamselInDistress: Gets captured by [[spoiler:the renegade OPA faction]] in ''Nemesis Games''.
* GoingForTheBigScoop: Her investigation into the missing ships in ''Nemesis Games''.
* HotScoop
* IntrepidReporter

!Elvi Okoye

A biologist that came to New Terra as part of RCE's scientific expedition. First appearance: ''Cibola Burn''.

* CelebCrush: She has one on Holden pretty much as soon as she sees him.

!Dimitri Havelock

Detective Miller's partner aboard Ceres Station. First appearance: ''Leviathan Wakes''.

* AscendedExtra: A minor character in ''Leviathan Wakes''. Returns four books later as a POV character.
* HeelFaceTurn: It takes a while, but he finally turns against Murtry and helps Naomi -- who he took prisoner in the first place -- escape back to the ''Rocinante''.
* FantasticRacism: He's a decent guy, but he's shunned and disrespected by the primarily-Belter population of Ceres Station because he's Earthborn. Eventually leads to him having to leave the station before things reach a boiling point.
** Played with in ''Cibola Burn'', where his experience on Ceres and working for Murtry have left him with his own distrust of Belters; ultimately, he's a better person than he tells himself he is, and frequently works to subvert the Belter-Earther tensions aboard the ''Edward Israel''.
* HeelRealization: Later in ''Cibola Burn''.
* NaiveNewcomer
* PunchClockVillain: He's not a bad guy, but he's a pushover who tends to find himself intimidated by the likes of Murtry and Koenen.
* PutOnABus: By Miller at the beginning of ''Leviathan Wakes'', to protect him.
** TheBusCameBack: As of ''Cibola Burn''. Amusingly, he's been part of nearly every mercenary group the crew has encountered, from Eros to Ganymede -- it just took four books for him to actually run into the crew of the ''Roci''.
* SixthRanger: To the ''Rocinante'' crew toward the end of ''Cibola Burn''.
* TookALevelInBadass: Shows himself to be more than competent in combat during the later chapters of ''Cibola Burn'' when he helps Naomi and Basia escape the ''Edward Israel''. Granted, this was combat against amateurs he trained himself, but he's still seen his share of action and is much more confident than he was when he was partnered with Miller.

!Basia Merton

A family man and colonist on Ilos/New Terra, in league with a local radical faction planning to drive away the corporate interests arriving to stake their claim on the newly inhabited world. First appearance: ''Caliban's War''.

* AscendedExtra: Like Havelock, he appeared briefly in an earlier book and returns in ''Cibola Burn'' as a POV character.
* TheAtoner: After he realizes how many people have died as a result of his actions he gives himself up into Holden's custody and eventually helps rescue Naomi.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Comes to deeply regret assisting in the destruction of the landing platform and the shootout with Murtry's security forces.
* OverprotectiveDad: Especially toward his teenage daughter.
* YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters: Though he eventually realizes he's the former.

!Erich

A former criminal henchman from Amos' past. As of ''Nemesis Games'', he controls most of Baltimore. First appearance: ''The Churn''.

* AffablyEvil
* FromNobodyToNightmare
* FriendlyEnemy: With Amos. They're both amiable to one another, but they also keep their finger on the button/trigger at all times when dealing with each other. By the end of ''Nemesis Games'', they have a sort of mutual trust but both of them know there's nothing more they have to say to each other.
* RedRightHand: His withered arm.

[[/folder]]
[[folder: Antagonists (Unmarked Spoilers Ahead)]]

!Jules-Pierre Mao

CEO of Mao-Kwikowski Industries. The search for his daughter Juliette sets off the plot of ''Leviathan Wakes''.

* BigBad: Of ''Caliban's War''.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive
* FateWorseThanDeath: Avasarala promises that she'll make him watch as she dismantles his legacy bit by bit.
* TheManBehindTheMan
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney
* SmugSnake

!Sadavir Errinwright

The UN undersecretary of executive administration. Avasarala's boss.

* BigBadFriend
* TheChessmaster
* InUniverseNickname: Avasarala calls him "the bobble-head." [[RefugeInAudacity To his face.]]

!Admiral Augusto Nguyen

Earth admiral straining at the leash for a war against Mars.

* GeneralRipper / InsaneAdmiral
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: The protomolecule monsters he intended to use against Mars are used against his own ship.
* KilledMidSentence

!Dr. Strickland / Carlos Merrian

The doctor responsible for kidnapping Prax's daughter and conducting experiments on children using the alien protomolecule.

* MadScientist
* TheSociopath
* TheyCalledMeMad: Fired from his previous position due to his questionable ethics and later signed on with Protogen because they wouldn't care.
* WouldHurtAChild
* YourHeadAsplode: Thanks to Amos' auto-shotgun.

!Melba Koh / Clarissa Mao

The daughter of Jules-Pierre Mao, who assumes an alias in order to sabotage the fleet headed toward the Ring and frame James Holden for the disaster.

* AvengingTheVillain: She has an extremely skewed view of her father, and is trying to get revenge on Holden for putting him in jail.
* BioAugmentation: The glands in her mouth give her SuperStrength and enhanced speed, but leave her exhausted for a time afterward.
* DaddysLittleVillain
* DarkActionGirl
* EasilyForgiven: Understandably averted, considering that she's at least a little bit insane, directly responsible for the deaths of hundreds of people (several by her own hand in order to cover up her sabotage), and personally tried to murder Naomi. The only reason any of the ''Roci'' crew don't blow her head off instead of taking her back to trial is because Anna made them promise not to, and they owed her a favor.
* HeelRealization: Starts with her regret at the murder of one of her engineering team, and eventually extends to the realization that no one is responsible for her father's fate except for her father.
** HeelFaceTurn
* WaifFu: Especially in ''Nemesis Games'', where she's considerably more gaunt thanks to her years in an underground prison, but is still able to use her glands to rip people apart with her bare hands when necessary.

!Murtry

The security chief sent by Royal Charter Energy to establish the company's claim on Ilus / New Terra. Serves as the principal antagonist of ''Cibola Burn''.

* ColonelKilgore: The first thing he does when he arrives on Ilus is to shoot one of the colonists for threatening him.
* TheSociopath: Miller says as much, telling Holden that Murtry is just using the situation on Ilus to do all the sadistic, trigger-happy stuff he's always wanted to.
* UndyingLoyalty: To RCE, apparently. When it becomes fairly certain that everyone on the planet, including himself, is going to die, he actively interferes with Havelock and the ''Rocinante'' crew's attempts to find a way for everyone to survive. He just wants a shelter with the RCE logo on it dropped so the company can maintain its claim when they send the next crew.

!Marco Inaros

Leader of the Free Navy who has a history with Naomi. First appearance ''Nemesis Games''.

* CrazyJealousGuy: Even while he says he doesn't care about Holden, he comes up with some pretty elaborate plans for getting rid of the guy.
* ManipulativeBastard: He tries very hard to be a MagnificentBastard, but several characters comment that everything he does seems entirely too practiced to come across as anything but slimy.
* MoralSociopathy
* RationalizingTheOverkill
* RebelLeader: A dark version
* UnwittingPawn: For all his planning and boasting, he turns out to be a pawn for Admiral Duarte.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Believes that the discovery of the Rings will make the Belters obsolete, but is willing to kill untold numbers of people to make the point.
* WhyDidYouMakeMeHitYou: More like "Why did you make me hold our son hostage in order to control you, turn our friends against you, and then kidnap you years later?"

!Admiral Duarte

The man behind the Free Navy's uprising -- apparently a Martian Naval officer with designs on controlling the protomolecule.

* BiggerBad: Marco is the main villain of ''Nemesis Games'', but Fred and Holden mention that he isn't the sort of person who could plan such an unprecedented series of attacks. It turns out Duarte is the one truly responsible.
* TheChessmaster: Responsible for much of the conflict in ''Nemesis Games'', and no one is even directly aware of his existence yet.
* TheGhost: Hasn't made a personal appearance yet.
* TheManBehindTheMan: To Marco.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Sauveterre implies that Duarte is willing to dispose of the Belter Free Navy once they've served their purpose.

* PosthumousCharacter: [[spoiler:The only time we see her alive is in the prologue to ''Leviathan Wakes''.]]

* RebelliousPrincess
* MadnessMantra: [[spoiler:''You can't take the Razorback. She is gone and gone and gone.'']]
