Team Luna

    Luna 
The main protagonist, a superspy employed by the Agency to do its dirty work around the world.

  • All-Loving Hero: She's this to a fault, even acting friendly towards Count Von Brucken despite his having tried to kill her. It starts to fade in Year 2, but then comes back with full force in Chapter 10 when she saves Terra from a rocket.
  • Conservation of Ninjutsu: She once engaged in a Big Ball of Violence with some Bruckenstein agents and came out on top. All were wearing ninja outfits at the time.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: She offers her protection to her evil clone after defeating her.
  • Designer Babies: Ostensibly, she's a test tube baby raised in a secret government base, with the implication that she'd been made from Jennifer's DNA.
  • Disney Death: After the Bruckenstein Embassy is leveled by an explosion meant for Jia.
  • Don't Make Me Destroy You: To Control after her Face–Heel Turn.
    Control: Luna, you're making a terrible mistake. And I really don't want to fight you again.
    Luna: If you get in my way, you won't have a choice.
  • Easily Forgiven: After her stint with Knightfall, though it's quite understandable considering the circumstances.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Joins up with Knightfall for a time after being abandoned by family and friends.
  • Jerkass Ball: In Volumes 8 and 9, during which she gets caught in a brawl for the first time and even does a Face–Heel Turn when her feelings of abandonment become too much for her.
  • Leotard of Power: Part of her armor as a Knightfall agent.
  • Magic Skirt: It comes with the territory. Nothing is ever shown despite her being known to display athletic feats in a schoolgirl uniform.
  • Ninja: Her usual outfit for stealth missions is this.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Her brawl with Francesca, which precipitates her Face–Heel Turn, is a shock to everyone, and Mr. Dreyfus even makes a point of noting that this is the first time either of them got caught fighting.
  • Plot-Mandated Friendship Failure: Both Oliver and Francesca abandon her in Volume 7, which only pushes her closer to a Face–Heel Turn.
  • Precision F-Strike: "Damn! He's gone. You guys cost me my shot at following Tromperie."
  • Squee!: Happens when she walks in on Jennifer and Andrew kissing.
  • Teen Superspy: And practically a Child Soldier considering how her own Agency treats her throughout the series, up to and including the threat of termination hanging over her.
  • These Hands Have Killed: She does not take her crossing off Dr. Tromperie very well at all.
  • Trauma Conga Line: In Volumes 7 and 8, from not one but two cases of Plot-Mandated Friendship Failure to the perception that Control doesn't care about her, culminating in her Face–Heel Turn.

    Jennifer Kajiwara (Control) 
Luna's boss, and later teacher, who turns out to have been her birth mother.

  • Big Good: Especially beginning in Volume 9, at the end of which she's set up a team that she can trust with her life.
  • Combat Stilettos: Subverted when she has to battle Elyse Von Brucken in the middle of a wedding, in that she simply takes off her heels and uses them as improvised weapons.
  • The Comically Serious: The natural result of her finding herself stuck in the middle of any insanity currently going on, particularly during Family Week.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: The center of a major secondary plot.
  • Fantasy-Forbidding Father: She had the bad luck to be born to an extreme example. Anything that distracted from the family business was, to him, the "fantasy".
  • Good Is Not Nice: She may be a major hardcase who doesn't cut anyone any slack, but she has good reason, and she really is trying to do right by Luna. She's also willing to murder a largely innocent girl (an enemy, but not an immediate threat) if that means protecting Luna.
  • Hot Librarian: Intended as a variation on the type, if early design notes are anything to go by.
  • Hot Teacher: After she joins Nobel's teaching staff.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Done in Volume 9 to convince Luna to return to her side.
    Control: October 2nd... I gave birth to you on October 2nd.
  • Mama Bear: She may not be nice to Luna at times, but threaten her, and you'll learn the hard way how dedicated she is to her. In Volume 9, she even threatened to go off the radar and take Luna with her if the Agency tried to terminate her.
  • Ms. Fanservice: After her makeover in Amazing Agent Jennifer, she became a major source of Fanservice Tropes.
  • Not So Stoic: When Andrew presses her on why she pushes Luna so hard, she breaks down and admits she's worried about her well-being and doesn't want the Agency to destroy her.
  • Ship Tease: With Andrew, especially when he starts giving her a foot massage without realizing it. They are pretending to be married, after all.
  • Stern Teacher: When she assigns five chapters by Friday, followed by a lab presentation on Monday and a test on Tuesday, it's easy to wonder if she's forgotten that her students aren't nearly as superhuman as her daughter.
  • Undercover as Lovers: With Andrew when Luna's infiltrating Nobel Academy.

    Dr. Andrew Collins 
A psychiatrist hired by Control to pose as Luna's father.

    Francesca Aldana 
A former member of Elizabeth's gang who befriends Luna.

  • Fantastic Racism: Especially after that episode at the school dance, she has little tolerance for science-y beings, which briefly causes her to rejoin Elizabeth's gang during Year 2.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Over the course of Volume 1, she abandons Elizabeth's Girl Posse and befriends Luna.
  • Heel Realization: In Volume 9, after she learns she had abandoned Luna for no good reason.
  • Jerkass Ball: Between Volumes 7 and 9, when she thinks Luna's hiding something from her and becomes more hostile towards her because of it.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Her brawl with Luna, which precipitates the latter's Face–Heel Turn, is a shock to everyone, and Mr. Dreyfus even makes a point of noting that this is the first time either of them got caught fighting.
  • Plot-Mandated Friendship Failure: With Luna in Volume 7 when she thinks she's hiding something.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Gets taken to task by Andrew and Control in Volume 9 for her actions in the previous two volumes.

    Oliver Riggs 
A skateboarder who befriends Luna early on.

  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Having a criminal for a father is bad enough, but when his mother shows up... especially her interactions with Mr. Dreyfus weird him out.
  • Brain Bleach: Cites this after his mother spends the evening flirting with Mr. Dreyfus.
  • Jerkass Ball: Between Volumes 7 and 9, when he thinks Count Von Brucken is getting off easy compared to his father.
  • Plot-Mandated Friendship Failure: With Luna in Volume 7 when he thinks her family is sheltering Von Brucken (long story).
  • Running Gag: He never can seem to stay on his skateboard.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Gets taken to task by Andrew and Control in Volume 9 for his actions in the previous two volumes.

    Jonah Von Brucken 
The mysterious son of Count Von Brucken. It's hard to tell whose side he's on.

    Timothy Hyatt 
An aspiring scientist who enlists a friend of his to create a synthetic date for him. Unfortunately, things don't go as he thought they would...

    Mark Dreyfus 
Luna's gym teacher and an ex-Navy SEAL who becomes an important ally after learning some more about her.

Bruckenstein

    Count Heinrich Von Brucken 
The ruler of Bruckenstein.

  • Harmless Villain: Back and forth. In the end, though, it turns out that his wife is the dangerous one - he's every bit as much of an idiot as he acts. This is, in fact, deconstructed; he's so harmless that he actually becomes friends with Luna after having lived and shared ice cream with her.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: After his overthrow, he starts switching between ally and enemy to Luna and Jennifer.

    Elyse Von Brucken 
Count Von Brucken's cunning and more dangerous wife.

  • Lady Macbeth: Between her and her husband, she's actually the evil and dangerous one, and has none of his positive qualities.

    Dr. Tromperie 
One of Count Von Brucken's goons who infiltrates Nobel Academy as a teacher.

    Charlie Riggs 
Oliver's father, who happens to be involved in some dirty work for Bruckenstein.

Knightfall

    Master Control 
The head of Knightfall and Control's former boss. He easily wins a very vulnerable Luna over.

    Anders Haugen 
A top agent at Knightfall who may not be entirely loyal to its cause.

The Agency

    Agency Heads 
Three faceless individuals who collectively direct the agency.

  • The Faceless: Their faces are always in shadow.
  • No Such Agency: Even the CIA doesn't know the Agency exists.
  • We Have Reserves: All of their agents are considered expendable. This bites them hard when they're dumb enough to terminate Project Luna.

    Eugene Marlow (The Controller) 
Jennifer's former co-worker and the creator of Project Terra.

     Terra 
The ten-year-old girl created as a replacement for Luna. Her genetics are far more advanced than Luna's, but she has far less experience or exposure to the world.

  • Because You Were Nice to Me: After comparing how the Agency treated her as an acceptable casualty with her "enemy," Luna, Taking The Rocket for her, she realizes that she's on the wrong team.
  • Cute and Psycho: Has no real moral compass or even understanding of morality. There's just allies and enemies, and enemies are to be made dead.
  • Healing Factor: As a result of her genetic upgrades, she heals faster than a human; this is important when her blood is given to Luna in a transfusion.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After meeting Luna and being saved by her, she turns against the Agency.
  • Tsundere: Non-romantic version. When she offers a blood transfusion to Luna, it's not because she likes Luna, really! She just wants to clear her debt to Luna for her life.
  • Unscrupulous Hero: Post-Heel–Face Turn, she still doesn't really care about ethics, but she is loyal to her new family. She prefers finishing off downed enemies, and at one point agrees that she's Not So Different from Eugene when she's planning to kill him. She can be talked down, though.

Others

    Elizabeth Westbrook 
The most popular girl at Nobel Academy, who looks down on the new meat and the "losers" and establishes herself as Luna's high school archnemesis.

  • Alpha Bitch: Something she doesn't even try to hide.
  • Berserk Button: Francesca joining Luna isn't something Elizabeth takes very well, and she gets very angry with Luna for it.
  • Girl Posse: A typical Alpha Bitch trope, and she's not often seen without hers.
  • It's All About Me: Her self-centeredness can cause some real problems and once came close to causing an international incident involving Bruckenstein.
  • Jerkass: Alpha Bitch? Check. Self-centered? Check. Constantly hates on Luna every time they meet and shows no sympathy for most other students at Nobel Academy? Check.
  • Oh, Crap!: When she's about to be kidnapped by Count Von Brucken.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: The one time she makes even a half-hearted attempt to be nice, it was because Timothy was rescuing her after Count Von Brucken had kidnapped her for his cloning project.
  • Smug Snake: She's quite cocky and believes the whole world will bend to her will most of the time, only losing her cool when things go south for her (for example, when she gets kidnapped).

    Principal Ohlinger 
The principal of Nobel Academy.

    Bowie O'Shea 
Oliver's mother, who returns some time after his father is arrested.

    Jia Lin 
A robot who appears to be a reserved Chinese exchange student. She's central to the "cold fusion" story arc.
