[[folder:Main Characters]]
!!Narue Nanase
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSNarue_9700.png]]

->'''Voiced By:''' Creator/MamikoNoto (Japanese), Creator/VeronicaTaylor (English)

The title character, Narue is a pretty middle-schooler hailing from a ''really'' low-income family. A self-confessed "alien", it's not too surprising that Narue is considered an eccentric by many people, and had to endure a lot of bullying while she was growing up. Ironically, she really ''is'' an alien (well, half-alien anyway), and her mere presence on Earth makes her the focus of a ''lot'' of weirdness, to say the least.
----
* AdaptationDyeJob: Narue's hair in the manga is a very bright auburn, verging on red, but in the anime it's turned into a relatively subdued light brown.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Narue rarely, but it's there. She's shown the most jealousy towards Kazuto's favorite anime, of all things - it's the main reason she tries cosplay, when she sees him talking cheerily with a cosplaying girl.
* DeadpanSnarker: Has shades of this, especially whenever Kazuto's fantasies pop up.
* EverybodyHatesMathematics: Narue is surprisingly bad at mathematics (and the sciences for that matter).
* HairDecs: Narue always wears a headband, which is actually a teleporation terminal.
* HalfHumanHybrid
* [[spoiler:HappilyMarried: To Kazuto, in the DistantFinale.]]
* [[spoiler:IChooseToStay: Stays behind with her friends on Earth.]]
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Narue is sometimes really troubled over being half-alien, and wishes people would treat her as any other human. It doesn't help that she's compulsively honest and up-front about being partially non-human. [[KidsAreCruel Even those who don't believe her will often tease her about the claim.]]
* MeaningfulName: The characters of Narue's name means "be blessed".
* MissingMom: Narue's mother died five years before, after saving her from being run over by a car.
* PerpetualPoverty: Narue regularly obsesses over minor expenses that others would make thoughtlessly.
* PurpleEyes
* [[spoiler:ShesAllGrownUp: In the DistantFinale.]]
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Narue ''supposedly'' looks like a much younger version of her mother Narumi, at least as far as her uncle is concerned.
* TaremeEyes
* WeirdnessMagnet: Lampshaded by Kazuto at one point, even.
* WillNotTellALie: Even when the truth would get her teased or ostracized.

!!Kazuto Iizuka
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSKazuto_6840.png]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Daisuke Sakaguchi (Japanese), Jamie McGonnigal (English)

Narue's boyfriend, compared to his significant other Kazuto can be considered a relatively normal boy his age, from a normal middle-class family, though his mother ''does'' worry that he watchers too much anime for his own good. Kazuto is very devoted to Narue, and for all the weirdness she seems to attract, he's always there to help her to the best of his (very meager) abilities.
----
* AccidentalPervert: The poor guy seems to land in situations where it's ''very'' easy for people to misinterpret what he's doing.
* ActionSurvivor: While he has a sincere wish to protect Narue (and by extension her family and friends), Kazuto doesn't really match up well to the people or organizations trying to take advantage of the her.
* [[spoiler:HappilyMarried: To Narue, in the DistantFinale.]]
* {{Nosebleed}}: Given Kazuto's hyperactive imagination, this tends to happen a lot. While often played for laughs, at the end of one chapter it is mentioned off-hand that he had to take a blood transfusion to survive one instance of this.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent
* {{Otaku}}: Very mild compared to modern associations with the word, but Kazuto is a big fan of the ShowWithinAShow ''Yongo-chan''.
* TookALevelInBadass: Averted. With everything that's happened so far, Kazuto ''wants'' this to happen, but as Uni points out he has a long way to go. ''May'' happen eventually though...
* UnfazedEveryman: It's come to the point where Kazuto doesn't panic (as much anyway) whenever something happens because of Narue.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Dark blue, though in Kazuto's case it could be argued that it's just a stylized black.

[[folder:The Nanase Household]]

!!Tadashi Nanase
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSTadashi_9923.png]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Junichi Sugawara (Japanese), Creator/DanGreen (English)

Narue's father, and the source of the alien half of her heritage. A former employee of the Surveillance Department sent to evaluate the technological level of Earth, he eventually settled down and married Narue's mother despite this being technically against the Union's non-interference rules. These days he does odd jobs, mostly roadwork, but barely makes ends meet for the family, a situation that eventually shapes Narue's perspective on money and spending in general.
----
* EyesAlwaysShut: just look at the picture
* HumanAlien: human enough to father a half-human daughter.
* IChooseToStay: He's actually a wealthy man on his homeworld but gave it up for love.
* PerpetualPoverty: Lost his Surveillance Department job when he refused reassignment, and Inspector Tail Messer is only willing to cut him some slack as long as he and Narue keep a low profile.

!!Kanaka Nanase
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSKanaka_2721.png]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JunkoMinagawa (Japanese), Rachael Lillis (English)

Narue's sister from her father's previous marriage, Kanaka is chronologically her ''older'' sister, a fact that she likes to remind everyone. She looks much younger than her age might suggest however, due to TimeDilation: the ship she stowed away on used "traditional" FTL instead of the near-instantaenous Gate transit, which meant that while only months passed for her, more than a decade had passed by on Earth. For all the babying she receives from Narue, Kanaka tries to look out for her sister as much as she could, as a good older sister should.
----
* AdaptationDyeJob: Much like her sister Narue, Kanaka has bright auburn hair in the manga. In the anime however this is turned into a very subdued shade of dark brown.
* [[BigBrotherInstinct Big Sister Instinct]]: Despite her protests on her arrival, Kanaka grows into the role, and often looks out for Narue's interests.
* BrattyHalfPint: Despite being chronologically older, Kanaka ''still'' acts like a twelve-year old.
* CoolBigSis: Wants to be seen this way by Narue. Unfortunately her height and physical age makes things difficult, to say the least.
* DaddysGirl: had an idealistic image of her father until she was forced to confront the reality.
* HumanAlien: In Kanaka's case however both sides of her family are offworlders.
* IChooseToStay: Inverted. [[spoiler: Unlike everyone else, she decides to go with her mother, to keep her company. She comes back to visit in the DistantFinale.]]
* MissingMom: Kanaka's mom Haruka is often too busy with her work as a starship captain to even come home, much less drop by for stuff like Parent's Day at school.
* OdangoHair: If Kanaka's not wearing her hair down, it's usually tied up like this.
* PurpleEyes: This, despite the two sisters not sharing a mother. Must also be from Tadashi's side of the family.
* TsurimeEyes: As a contrast to Narue.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: It's easy to forget that she's the ''older'' sister.

!!Bathyscaphe
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSBathyscaphe_3535.png]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Mami Kosuge (Japanese), Carol Jacobanis (English)

A battleship of Planet Japan, upon her "retirement" Bathyscaphe was assigned to be Kanaka's guardian after her father never returned from his evaluation assignment on Earth. In practice however this means that she acts more as Kanaka's ''mother'' more than anything else. She's acclimatized surprisingly well to the conditions on Earth, but that doesn't mean that she's lost her edge; when push comes to shove, she's still a battleship, and is more than willing to use those abilities to help the Nanase family.
----
* InterspeciesRomance: With her first captain. As the entry below notes, it doesn't end too well.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Was under the influence of one, much to everyones' surprise. In this case however it was needed, as she likely wouldn't have even continued to ''function'' given her shock at the death of her first captain.
* ParentalSubstitute
* RetiredBadass: A space battleship in this case. [[spoiler:She is forced to come out of retirement to help the rest of the Galactic Union's fleet during the Divine Pillar crisis.]]
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots
* SpaceshipGirl
* TaremeEyes
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Friends and Classmates]]

!!Maruo Masaki
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSMaruo_4244.png]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JunFukuyama (Japanese), Jimmy Zoppi (English)

Kazuto's best buddy, Maruo is a member of the school's baseball team (which means he's a bit of a jock), and a self-styled expert on all things romantic. He's also surprisingly open-minded about a lot of things, which means whenever something strange happens to either Kazuto and Narue, or anyone else for that matter, he takes things in stride.
----
* CasanovaWannabe
* ChildhoodFriends: Is one with Yagi.
* SecretKeeper: Maruo in the manga is ''perfectly'' aware about the truth behind the weirdness surrounding his friend Kazuto and the Nanase family.
* UnfazedEveryman

!!Yagi Hajime
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSYagi_4968.png]]

->'''Voiced by:''' SaekoChiba (Japanese), Michele Knotz (English)

Maruo's childhood friend and next-door neighbor, Yagi is a science-fiction fan, and is particularly interested in subjects related to aliens and [=UFOs=]. While initially hostile to Narue (because despite being an "alien", she doesn't really fit the expected imagery of aliens in the fiction that she's read), she eventually becomes close friends with her. Her dream is to become a well-known science fiction novelist.
----
* [[AgentMulder Agents Mulder]] [[AgentScully and Scully]]: Yagi somehow manages to be ''both'' because while she believes in aliens and other strange things very easily, she turns into a Scully whenever it comes to Narue's claims of being an alien.
* ChildhoodFriends: Is one with Maruo.
* DreamingOfThingsToCome[=/=]DreamingOfTimesGoneBy: Seems to have become Yagi's hat, given the content of the Light Novel she wrote: [[spoiler:apparently it tells of an event that ''actually happened'' in the history of the Avalonians/United Stars, or -- in their opinion -- will happen eventually in Earth's future. It's complicated.]]
* GreenEyes
* {{Meganekko}}
* SecretChaser: Yagi at first for Narue's identity as an alien. Eventually the sheer amount of weirdness she sees and experiences by dint of just being ''friends'' with Narue makes her give up on this.
* [[spoiler:{{Seers}}: Belka has come to see her as one, due to the content of her novels.]]
* [[spoiler:ShesAllGrownUp: And becomes a successful SF writer at that.]]
* [[UnfazedEveryman Unfazed Everywoman]]: Has come to accept that weird things just ''happen'' around Narue.
* WritersBlock
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Despite being a normal native of Earth, Yagi has ''purple'' hair.

!!Haruna
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSHaruna_6873.png]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Yumi Touma (Japanese), Angora Deb (English)

A high-speed escort ship of Planet Japan's space navy, Haruna ran away during one particularly stressful battle and goes into hiding on Earth. While she is initially terrified at being discovered by Bathyscaphe, once she is convinced that the battleship won't turn her in she quickly becomes close friends with the Nanase household (and indeed, it's the first place she runs to whenever she has problems). Although she started as a mere waitress for the seaside cafe and mountain inn she was working for, she eventually marries her boss, the heir to the inn.
----
* TheDitz: While well-meaning, Haruna is very scatter-brained, often forgetting things like hiding her ship form.
* FriendToAllChildren: Kids just love Haruna apparently.
* InterspeciesRomance
* HappilyMarried
* [[spoiler:HumanityEnsues: Haruna apparently becomes human by the final chapter.]]
* IAmNotAGun
* [[spoiler:IChooseToStay: Stays behind on Earth to be with her husband and friends.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: Of a sort. She's pretty much taken over for Narue and Kazuto in taking care of Tetra during the day, and is even called "Haruna-mama" by Tetra.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots
* SpaceshipGirl
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!!Shiki Nagaoka
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSShiki_2380.png]]

Narue's classmate from grade school and likely her oldest friend, Shiki is the manager of a bookstore specializing in used or old books. And while she doesn't look like it, she's ''also'' a member of one of the town's more established families. For the most part, she's content just minding the store, which used to belong to her beloved grandmother Setsu.
----
* BigOlEyebrows
* KindheartedCatLover
* GenerationXerox: Shiki is identical to her late grandmother Setsu, when Setsu was her age. Shiki also runs her grandmother's old family bookstore.
* TheOjou: While she certainly doesn't act that way, one has to be again reminded that Shiki is actually from well-off family.
* [[spoiler:ShesAllGrownUp: In the DistantFinale.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: A very dark purple.

!!Kyouko Kudou
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSKyouko_4703.png]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Kanako Tateno (Japanese), Creator/LisaOrtiz (English)

Pretty and popular, Kyouko is one of Narue and Yagi's classmates. In class she just loves picking on the two for their various eccentricities, making her the AlphaBitch of their class, but ''outside'' of it she's surprisingly thoughtful and nice. She befriends Akira Nitta, due to a shared experience as well as similar lovelife troubles.
----
* AdaptationDyeJob: In the manga it is revealed (long after the anime ended) that the color of her hair is actually brown, and not light blonde.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited
* AlphaBitch: Kyouko seems like this, as whenever she shows up in the manga it's to verbally belittle or bully Nanase and Yagi for being "weird". Subverted in later chapters, where it is shown that she can be nice when she tries.
* ISeeDeadPeople: Aside from Nitta, she was the only one who could see the ghost haunting the school library.
* {{Jerkass}}: Prior to her ADayInTheLimelight chapter, this is the only way Kyouko could be seen as, however...
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: ... she seems to have settled into this role, partly due to her friendship with Nitta.
* OddFriendship: With Nitta.
* OneSteveLimit: Averted. Kyouko shares her first name with the ghost that was haunting the school library.

!!Akira Nitta
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSAkira_4888.png]]

Another of Kazuto and Narue's classmates, Akira is part of the library committee and is usually left in charge of the library whenever the librarian is out. He and Kyouko have a strange friendship, born out of a shared experience as well as being similar circumstances in love. Incidentally he's also Shiki's cousin.
----
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Is attracted to Narue.
* BigOlEyebrows
* ISeeDeadPeople: Was one of only two people who the ghost in the library manifested to.
* OddFriendship: With Kudou.
* ShrinkingViolet
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: A dark shade of blue or purple in his case.

[[folder:The Galactic Union]]

!!Inspector Suzuki Tail Messer
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSMesser_7030.png]]

->'''Voiced By:''' Tomomichi Nishimura (Japanese), Tristan Goddard (English)

The on-site supervisor of the Galactic Union forces observing Earth. While officially sticking to a "hands-off" policy with regards to the inhabitants of the planet, he gives the Nanase family some leeway with regards to their activities, as long as they don't do anything that would reveal the existence of the Union (or any other stellar power).
----
* CoolOldGuy
* CoolShades: The good inspector isn't seen anywhere without his sunglasses.
* EmbarrassingFirstName / EmbarrassingMiddleName: Inspector Tail Messa's full name is Suzuki ''Tail'' Messer.
* HumanAlien
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Unusually so for someone whose responsibilities include enforcing the {{Masquerade}}. He likes Narue, but wishes she would be more discreet.

!!Rin Asakura
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSRin_1011.png]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Oma Ichimura (Japanese), Zoe Fries (English)

The first member of the Surveillance Trio that Narue and Kazuto meet, Rin is an intelligence-type humanoid mecha with the ability to modify memories. In many ways, Rin is the most down-to-earth of the three Surveillance Bureau mecha, and is the most comfortable in interacting with the locals, making friends very easily.
----
* ACupAngst: Rin feels... ''insufficient'' whenever in the company of more mature-configured mecha, as one chapter demonstrates.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Rin was initially introduced as a competent, even outright threatening member of the Surveillance Department, having pretty much brainwashed the people around Narue and Kazuto without much difficulty, and nearly done so to Kazuto himself. Her competence drops considerably though once Rei and Ran are introduced.
* TheChick[=/=]TheHeart: Compared to her two friends, Rin is ''not'' built for combat, and is a bit of a klutz. However, Rei admits later on that Rin's cheerfulness and unwavering optimism is just as important to their team as the fighters' combat skills.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: In order to stop the United Stars president.]]
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: You wouldn't expect it, but Rin apparently feels this way, especially when she is compared to her friends Ran and Rei. Lack of combat prowess aside (she can neither fly -- which means a drop of more than two stories will ''severely'' damage her -- nor does she have any built-in weaponry), she was also a mediocre student (an anomaly considering the fact that she's mecha) and pretty much had to work herself hard to be even accepted into the Surveillance Department.
* {{MindManipulation}}: Rin's specialty.
** NoSell: This makes her immune to other abilities that cause mind control, as one poor Avalonian terrorist found out. Doesn't work as well against Tetra's abilities though, but [[RealityWarper then again very few can resist those]].
* PaperFanOfDoom: Rin's signature weapon. Not really that effective against most of the threats she and her friends face.
* PrettyFreeloaders: Surprisingly subverted. When Rin decides to live on Earth, she ''doesn't'' move in with Kazuto, and instead moves in with the Nanase family. She also pays for her own meals and expenses (through her salary/allowance as an member of the Surveillance Department), and even helps out with the rent.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots
* ThemeNaming
* [[WingedHumanoid Winged Gynoid]]: Rin temporarily gains a pair of small (non-functioning) metallic wings after saving an injured swan.

!!Ran Tendou
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSRan_2810.png]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TomokoKawakami (Japanese), Vibe Jones (English)

Another member of the Surveillance Bureau team watching over the Nanase family, Ran is a fighter-class mecha, which means that when things become physical she's usually the first to be called in. Compared to her partner Rei, Ran is more prone to emotional outbursts and not thinking things through before acting.
----
* ACupAngst
* ActionGirl: As members of the Fighter class of humanoid-shaped mecha, Rei and Ran pretty much have this in their job description.
* BadAss: A job requirement for Fighter-class mecha.
* GirlishPigtails
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: In order to stop the United Stars president.]]
* HotBlooded
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots
* ThemeNaming
* {{Tomboy}}: At least compared to her partner Rei. Makes sense, as she was adopted into a family of martial artists.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Ran's hair is pink.

!!Rei Otonashi
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSRei_528.png]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NatsukoKuwatani (Japanese), Catherine Kim (English)

The last member of the Surveillance Bureau trio, Rei is a fighter-class mecha like her friend Ran. Compared to either Rin or Ran, Rei is much more calm and thoughtful, though she does still have her moments.
----
* ActionGirl: As members of the Fighter class of humanoid-shaped mecha, Rei and Ran pretty much have this in their job description.
* {{Badass}}
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: In order to stop the United Stars president.]]
* MacrossMissileMassacre: Rei loves her missiles.
* MyGreatestFailure: Years later, she still feels guilty that she wasn't able to save her foster sister Hana from drowning.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots
* TheStoic
* ThemeNaming
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Literally in Rei's case.

!!Shirase
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Shirase_6817.png]]

One of the many Galactic Union starships orbiting Earth, Shirase is the one tasked with filtering and transmitting messages to and from the planet. This makes her as a virtual information hub, and a great source of data, at least in the area of space close to the gate to Planet Japan.
----
* CutenessProximity: Finds Kanaka utterly adorable.
* GirlishPigtails
* {{Meganekko}}
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots
* SpaceshipGirl

!!Captain Haruka Nagoshi
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSHaruka_528.png]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Yumi Hikita (Japanese)

Kanaka's mom and Tadashi's ex-wife, Haruka is a serving captain in Planet Japan's space forces. Her duties usually keep her away from her family for long stretches of time, and as a result she grew estranged from her own daughter. Although she personally thinks it's far too late to make it up to Kanaka, she will still do her best to help her daughter within the limits of her position.
----
* AmicableExes: Despite being divorced for years now, she still seems to get along with Tadashi quite well.
* BerserkButton[=/=]MamaBear: Just ''try'' messing with Kanaka or her friends.
* TheCavalry
* ChekhovsGunman: She was mentioned off-hand around Chapter 5 of the manga (and episode 4 of the anime), but she is only seen in-person in Chapter 42.
* HumanAlien
* MarriedToTheJob: Something she admits led to the collapse of her marriage, and her estrangement with her daughter.
* [[AFatherToHisMen A Mother To Her Humanoid Battleships]]: Haruka is explicitly shown to treat all the mecha and battleships under her command like family.
* PowerHair
* TsurimeEyes

[[folder:The United Stars]]

!!Uni Milkyway/"Sora Amanogawa"
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSUni_682.png]]

A member of the Avalonian military, Uni was initially sent to Earth in part to watch over and protect the Nanase family and its friends, as well as collect evidence to help prove the United Star's theory of the ''real'' significance of Earth. She's grown a little too comfortable with her role as a teacher in Narue and Kazuto's school, and on some level questions the motivations of her superiors.
----
* [[spoiler:BabiesEverAfter: Gets married to Kanehara, and by the DistantFinale is pregnant with his child.]]
* BecomingTheMask: Uni is acting less like a spy the longer she stays on Earth, and more and more like an actual teacher.
* HeelFaceTurn: Helps Kanaka in getting her sister and Kazuto back from the United Stars, who are ostensibly her bosses.
* HotTeacher
* [[spoiler:IChooseToStay: Stays behind on Earth to become a teacher for real.]]
* {{Meganekko}}
* OpenSecret: Everyone at school knows that she has ''some'' level of psychic abilities.
* PhenotypeStereotype: As a citizen of Avalon (essentially a mix of America and Great Britain, except in outer space), Uni is tall, blonde, buxom, and blue-eyed.
* PsychicPowers: Uni is a powerful psychokinetic. Seems to be a relatively common trait among Avalonians.
* RippleProofMemory: As a Perceptor, Umi's memories remain intact even if the Snakes start messing with space-time. In her case, this is presented as both a good ''and'' a bad thing.
* SmokingIsCool

!!President Howard Awason
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSHoward_592.png]]

The current president of the United Stars is, to put it lightly, a man with an agenda. He's fully against the Galactic Union's "intervention" on Earth, and with good reason: like many in the upper echelons of his government, he believes that Earth is the origin of their civilization, though ''how'' this is possible is one of the points of contention between his country and the Union. Nominally reasonable, when one gets to the bottom of it he just wants the Galactic Union out... and have the United Stars step in to "oversee" Earth's development.
----
* CloningBlues: A temporary situation, and as he mentions he'll be "put back together" after his term ends.
* FantasticRacism: Does ''not'' like humanoid mecha of any sort, and goes out of his way to verbally belittle them or brush off their opinion.
* PsychicPowers
* WellIntentionedExtremist

[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSNarumi_6613.png]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MariaKawamura (Japanese), Zoe Fries (English)

Narue's mother. A poet vacationing at her brother's house, she helped save Tadashi from drowning in the local river. After a misunderstanding with the Surveillance Department, she takes Tadashi and flees to Sakura Town, where the two eventually marry. She dies after saving Narue from being run over by a car, and as of the start of the story she has been deceased for five years, but her influence on Narue still remains strong.

!!"Belka" and "Strelka"
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSBelka_3201.png [[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSStrelka_7502.png]]

A pair of mercenary sisters from Planet Russia that was hired by the United Stars to capture and "escort" Narue and Kazuto to a tense conference between them and the Galactic Union. They don't really care that much for the ideologies of who hire them, but once contracted they will make sure (or at least try anyway) to make sure the conditions are fulfilled.
----
* {{Badass}}: Both sisters.
* HiddenDepths: Belka used to paint prior to the incident that prompted her mechanization, and takes it up again after her "job" with Yagi.
* HiredGuns
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: They're Psychic (Belka anyway) Space Russian Cyborg Humanoid Battleship Mercenaries.
* NomDeGuerre: The sisters are known by the main characters through their code names. Their real names are Iira (Belka) and Sonya (Strelka) Lanaskaya.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney
* PunchClockVillain: Strelka is surprisingly laid-back whenever she isn't on a job, and enjoys just lazing about on her hammock.
* PrehensileHair: Belka.
* PsychicPowers: Belka.
* {{Revenge}}: The initial motivation for the sisters, before they became mercenaries: the sisters and their parents were caught up in a mafia attack. Both their parents died, and Belka was grievously injured, to the point where she had to be completely mechanized in order to survive.
* SpaceshipGirl: Strelka.
* TheStoic: Belka.
* ThemeNaming: The sisters' codenames come from dogs sent up to space during the USSR's space program. Also their mercenary organization, the Borzoi, is named after a Russian dog breed.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Both sisters have lime green hair.

!!Tetra
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NNSTetra_6198.png]]

A child that hatched from an egg that Kazuto and Narue found one day while on the way back from school. She seems both mecha and organic at the same time, a fact that confounds the Surveillance Department trio. As her organic segment seems to have based itself on both Kazuto and Narue, this means that Tetra is on some level their daughter. Since the both of them have classes to go to, Tetra is left under Rin's care for the day.
----
* CheerfulChild
* ChekhovsGun: The egg that Tetra hatched from was one of the many "evidence" that the United Stars had uncovered several chapters prior.
* HalfHumanHybrid: ''Really'' pushing the boundaries of the definition, but as mentioned she's part highly-advanced machine, and part organic "daughter" of Narue and Kazuto.
* MeaningfulName
* {{MindManipulation}}: One of the first abilities Tetra manifests as soon as she is born, where she pretty much scrambles (similar to what Rin does in the beginning of the manga) the memories of Kazuto's family so that they would accept her.
* MultiplePersonalities: "Tetra" seems to be unconsciously hosting at ''least'' three different entities inside her head.
* PlotRelevantAgeUp: Tetra physically ages from being a newborn baby to having the body of a five-year old in about a week, likely so she could interact verbally with everyone else in the cast.
* RealityWarper: To a degree that seriously worries the Surveillance Department, as it's done in a way that can't be detected by any of the means available to them.
* [[spoiler:ShesAllGrownUp: By the time of the DistantFinale.]]
