    Legosi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/legosi0.jpg

Our main character is the quiet and sensitive gray wolf Legosi. Because of his fearsome appearance and odd habits he is widely mistaken to be a scary, bloodthirsty carnivore. Legosi is wholly aware of this and does everything in his power to minimize himself and downplay his intimidating aspects. The series is largely about him coming to terms with his place in the world as a wolf.

Legosi develops some complicated feelings for the rabbit Haru.


  • Adorkable: Constantly due to his sensitive nature and discomfort in his own skin. His tail usually gives away his mood which leads to much adorable embarrassment.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Haru keeps calling him "Weirdo" and "Dumb Wolf".
  • All-Loving Hero: His affection for Haru slowly starts to expand onto herbivores as a whole, and thanks to his spiritual training with Gouhin, he comes to believe that all animals are equals no matter their natural background.
  • A Man Is Not a Virgin: Averted, as Legosi is a virgin. However, various people in his life make fun of him for it, which is compounded by the fact that those same people call him a pervert for dating a small herbivore. It also has something of a double meaning as the series often creates a connection between predation and sex. Just as Legosi is a virgin, he is also a carnivore who actively suppresses his desire to kill at eat others.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Legosi almost habitually starts thinking about things unrelated to what he is currently doing yet somehow connected to what he currently sees or hears, sometimes creating comedy, tension relief, or seriously impeding him during a fight.
  • Badass Family: Recent chapter revealed that his grandfather was an ex-military combat prodigy who only stopped fighting to start a family with Legosi's grandmother, which might explain why Legosi's geting better with brawling so fast despite not being keen on fighting. Oh, and the said grandfather also turns out to be a komodo dragon.
    • 36 years ago, his grandfather was considered in the running for the position of Beastar with his friend Yafya, who in the current day is now the Sublime Beastar.
  • Bookworm: He gains shades of this after becoming smitten with Haru. Specifically: when the supervisors of his dorm search through his backpack following his disappearance, they discover it's filled to the brim with books about interacting with rabbits and small animals. Yes, he is determined to understand Haru this much.
  • Berserk Button: Due to his self-loathing nature Legosi hates when other carnivores indulge in their dark desires. The suggestion of violence against herbivores causes him to lose it. He also has zero sympathy for Jack for wishing he was more naturally aggressive like Legosi and other natural predators (Jack being a Labrador, his species genetically altered to be more docile and intelligent) in the chapter showing how they became friends as children. Also, after he develops a crush on Haru, harming her or any rabbit in any way. Some animals found out the hard way.
  • Cannot Talk to Women: Well, he can, at least as long as he is not interested in them romantically. Enter Haru, and he has problems with putting together even a single cohesive sentence. Just thinking of a way to ask her name is a torture for him. He gets better the more time they spend together, though.
  • Chaste Hero: Played with. Legosi works really hard to make sure his feelings for Haru are genuine rather than sterling from sexual or predatory lust for her, despite these aspects having a visible influence on his behaviour sometimes.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: A minor case, but he comes across as weird and out there at times. Jack even says he has no idea how to handle Legosi in his "Mystery Mode episodes".
    • Even at his most serious, he can slip into odd behaviors such as during what is supposed to be a fight to the death with Riz, Legosi stops and wishes him happy new year as a bell tolls midnight. Louis is frustrated that even now, Legosi can't curb his air-headedness.
    • Turns out this is an inherited trait from his grandmother.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Legosi isn't a huge fan of fighting, but when he's is determined to win, he's not above using underhanded tactics like aiming for his opponent's old wounds if it means giving him an edge.
  • Covert Pervert: Several guys at Legosi's school start to suspect he's this when they notice his unusual interest in Haru the rabbit. Made even worse once his best friend Jack finds a rabbit porn magazine that Gouhin gave him under his bed. Even he starts to realize that he might just have a thing for herbivores.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Legosi keeps emergency money under the insoles of his shoes, which is something his grandfather taught him to do. Which turns out to be a blessing when he has to pay for his and Haru's food and shelter on the night following their Rescue Arc.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: A downplayed example, but when he was a child, his mom killed herself, and something about the situation led him to become estranged from his grandfather. And his father is nowhere to be seen.
  • Devoted to You: Once Legosi notices how Haru's affecting his own feelings and self-perception, he becomes extremely loyal to her and tries to get as close to her as she allows him. Juno is not happy about this.
  • Didn't Think This Through: To prove a point to Yafya, he rips out all of his teeth. He barely makes it to Gouhin's place before collapsing from pain and blood loss. And without his teeth he is unable to eat much or talk properly, causing Gouhin to make him some dentures.
  • Disappeared Dad: His father was never in his life. It turns out this is because he was an amateur actor that Legosi's mom saw in a talent magazine and had a one night stand with specifically to get pregnant. She never saw him again afterwards.
  • Disguised in Drag: In his own words, it was the "only way" he could get close to Louis to tell him about his fight with Raz without his guards recognizing him.
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: Played with. Being a highly self-aware big carnivore, Legosi is usually very careful not to harm smaller animals in his day-to-day life, but still constantly tries to improve his power balance based on input he gets from each new close encounter with them. Especially when said small animal is Haru and ESPECIALLY when she allows him to touch her intimately.
  • Dull Surprise: Legosi is one of the few drama students who isn't freaking out after one of his classmates accidentally gets his arm ripped off by another student. Presumably his time working with Gouhin had numbed him to horrible sights, but his calmness about it makes Bill suspicious of him.
  • Expository Hair Style Change: After Legosi returns to the black market to see Gouhin to increase his physical strength, Gouhin cuts most of Legosi's fur off, partially to let Legosi show him he is really committed to working to become stronger, and partially so Legosi and come and go without catching the attention of the Lion Mafia, who would presumably want revenge if they saw Legosi after what happened. He looks a lot less scruffy afterwards, and some of his female classmates think he looks more attractive, including Juno who seemed a bit off on Legosi after he rejected her Love Confession.
  • Face of a Thug: Has a rather thuggish face and is often drawn rather scarily to show how he is seen by others (and to sometimes show his more primal side.) However, he really has a heart of gold and generally keeps to himself.
    • He looks even more thuggish after his fight with Riz, gaining three scars on his face. This causes him problems in obtaining a job after he drops out of school because of the fight.
  • Friend to Bugs: He has a long-standing fascination with bugs.
  • Generation Xerox: A downplayed example considering they aren't the same species, but Legosi and his grandfather have the exact same slanted eyes and droopy eyebrows. It is how Yafya realizes that the wolf he has been tracking is related to his old best friend. He also retains his grandmother's airheaded nature. Not to mention how he's also interested romantically in someone of a different species then his own, which his grandfather even wonders if the trait runs in the family.
  • Gentle Giant: Legosi is very big and even for a wolf unusually strong (his bite force is well above the average for his species) but he's a very sensitive well-meaning soul.
  • Hero-Worshipper / The Knights Who Say "Squee!": Legosi is a devoted admirer of Louis most of the time, and the more this behaviour is shown the more toxic for Legosi it seems. While Louis undeniably has a lot of charisma and advertises himself well, the amount of faith Legosi puts in him makes him significantly underestimate his own value despite everyone around him noticing his own impressive growth. The way things develop as of now, chances are that when the time comes, Legosi will step aside to allow - or even force - Louis to take The Determinator actions that he himself would likely be better suited for.
  • Holding Hands: Legosi's preferred way of communicating his affection to Haru non-verbally is gently holding her hand, and with his being much bigger than hers, it illustrates both his devotion to her and challenges they may have to face if they ever decide to hook up.
  • Hormone-Addled Teenager: Legosi tries his hardest to treat Haru as the pure princess for his chaste, pure knight, but at some point he openly admits to himself that it's becoming harder and harder to keep his sexuality and sensuality out of the equation, and as of recent he's having more and more dreams about her he deems dirty.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: With Haru who stands just above the height of his knees. A non-romantic one is with his flatmate Sebun, who is barely taller than Haru.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Legosi comes to realize that he just wants to live an average high school student's life. He sees that Juno has most of the school in love with her and Louis is off doing important things elsewhere and he just wants to go to class, date a girl, go about his life, etc. However, he is quickly reminded that he is anything BUT normal with his love for an herbivore not even half his height and his violent urges that he tries to suppress.
  • Just Friends: Explicitly deemed this by Haru at first.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Despite his claims to be a lousy fighter, he can be very effective both defensively and offensively when he has to, blocking or enduring quick, heavy blows and dealing a lot of damage with his own attacks. After training with Gouhin his power evolves further, as due to suppressing his carnivore instincts, his strength shifts from his jaws to limbs, allowing him to make cracks in walls with the opponents he punches.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: Becomes one for Haru later in the story. She sleeps around a lot because she feels that people only take her seriously during sex, but at one point realises that the he is the only animal so far who always treated her as a full person, and without needing sex as a trigger at all. This made her admit to herself that no matter how complicated their relationship is, she simply can't live without him nearby.
  • Misunderstood Loner with a Heart of Gold: Legosi's strange habits are constantly misconstrued as being sinister despite the fact that he wouldn't hurt a fly.
  • My Greatest Failure: Legosi is really troubled about trying to kill and eat Haru before they met properly for the first time. Both because this was his biggest moment of weakness as a carnivore, and because he is scared to death about how it would change their relationship if she ever found out. Turns out she figured it out pretty quick and just pretended to not know it was him.
    • He also regrets not facing his mother when she embraced him the night before she committed suicide, thinking he may have been able to dissuade her had he done so. He confesses this guilt is partially why he fell so easily to Meron's manipulations.
  • Not Distracted by the Sexy: More accurately, fully distractable when appropriate, but also fully thinking with his head instead of pants when needed. When he barges into the chambers of Shishigumi gang's boss moments before the latter takes his first bite out of Haru, his reaction to seeing her completely naked is to throw her his t-shirt to cover herself up (and because it's Legosi, also apologising if it smells bad mid-ramming her assaulter). He also had his moments before he even fully understood what it means to experience male urges, courtesy of Haru - after overcoming the first wave of his shock upon seeing a bunny undressing to her undies and trying to take off his pants, his first impulse before running as far away as possible is covering her up with a bedsheet and worrying she'll catch a cold.
  • Oblivious to Love: He is absolutely blind to Juno's feelings for him and it took Haru disrobing and pulling his pants off for him to understand she was looking to have sex (though the latter had nothing to do with romantic love.)
  • Scars Are Forever: The claw marks Legosi received on his back early in the story are still there after many months of in-universe time. After a brutal fight with Riz, he gets 3 more scars over his eye.
  • Second Love: The more time he spends with Haru, the more probable it is she may eventually return his feelings. As of now, she has huge trouble with deciding if she wants Legosi to be only her best friend, which he already has achieved, or to make him her boyfriend as well.
  • Second Year Protagonist: Legosi is a second-year student.
  • Uneven Hybrid: After myriad veiled hints, it's revealed that the reason why Legosi has been estranged from his paternal Grandfather (who helped raise him) is because of shame Legosi feels over being the result of an interspecies marriage. It comes to light that his grandfather is a komodo dragon who married his grandmother, a wolf. Though his negative feelings for his grandfather seem to have to do more with what happened to his mom than for his mixed heritage, and he has made efforts to reconcile with him later on.
    • His interspecies ancestry also makes him immune to his grandfather's poison, which is normally lethal to other species. To him, it tastes like bitter and sweet marmalade.
    • In Chapter 133 it is hinted that Legosi will molt his fur and develop scales later in life, much like his mother did.
  • The Tooth Hurts: He pulls out all of his fangs in defiance against Yafya telling him to beg for being born a carnivore. Once he escapes, Reality Ensues as he runs to Gouhin and begs him to stop the pain.
  • Too Dumb to Live: He is manipulated by Meron, a known dangerous ivory tusk dealer, into taking off his handcuffs, going with him for a walk and eventually letting him go, on the basis that they are both hybrids and understand each other. The second he lets him go, Legosi is rewarded with a bullet through his chest. Though as he admits to his mother's spirit, he got emotional because of his lingering guilt with her suicide over her hybrid status and yells at himself for getting played.
  • What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: Contentment and happiness are such alien feelings to him that it takes a bit for him to recognize how he feels after meeting Haru.
  • What You Are in the Dark: Legosi was absolutely about to kill and eat Haru outside the theater but he fought it with all of his fortitude. A lesser carnivore wouldn't have even fought the temptation.
  • When He Smiles: Legosi gives a big smile to Louis at the end of chapter 97 after Riz has been stopped.

    Louis 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/louis2.jpg

The proud face of Cherryton's drama club. He has an enormous ego, but with acting skills like his, this isn't surprising. He carries a number of personality complexes owing to his status as a deer, a species traditionally seen as carnivore fodder. While he has shown moments of genuine kindness he is also very emotionally manipulative.

Louis' greatest ambition is to achieve the rank of Beastar. At least until he rejects his candidacy, and instead recommending Legosi as the better suitor for being the new Beastar.


  • An Arm and a Leg: To give him strength to finish his fight with Riz, Louis tells Legosi to eat his leg. Symbolically, it is the tattoo'd leg from when Louis was a child, representing him finding freedom from his past.
  • Better to Die than Be Killed: When Oguma forces him in a room with carnivores with only a knife when he keeps resisting, Louis chooses to bring the knife to his throat rather than allow himself to be eaten alive. This action makes Oguma deem him worthy of adopting him.
  • Big Ego, Hidden Depths: There's much, much more to Louis than simply being lead actor at Cherryton.
  • Big Man on Campus: Just about everyone on campus knows his name. Males want to be him, females want to be with him.
  • Bolivian Army Ending: After feeling guilty for not trying to save Haru from the Lion Mafia and letting Legosi go alone, Louis shows up after Legosi escapes with Haru and shoots the leader in the face. The we last see him welcoming all the other lion gangsters who showed up to eat him.
    • He shows up 9 chapters later, somehow managing to have taken over the lion mafia.
  • Broken Ace: For all of his posturing and prowess Louis is a very broken person.
  • Broken Pedestal: Following the Shishigumi rescue arc, Louis tries to convince Legosi to stop worshipping him due to all the bad things he's doing, but the wolf won't have any of it.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He was raised in basically a prison as livestock to be sold to carnivores to eat. He wasn't even taught how to speak since he wasn't going to be alive very long. Then he was adopted and saved from that.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: A common reaction given Louis' inferiority complex . For example after the Adler performance puts him in the hospital and the rest of the crew comes to wish him well.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: It takes a long time for Louis to come around to accept it, but he comes to consider Legosi as a good friend, going so far as to let Legosi eat his leg for strength during Legosi's fight with Riz.
  • Four Is Death: When Louis was being raised as livestock he was simply called #4. Overlaps with You Are Number 6.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Played with in his case. He is not happy about Haru's increasing closeness to Legosi, but so far at most teases her on that topic. On the other hand, he not-so-subtly uses this knowledge to mock Juno's ambitions regarding her hopes of hooking up with Legosi.
    • His feelings of inferiority regarding herbivore/carnivore dynamics have warped into intense envy of the physical and social power carnivores wield. He wants so badly to claim that strength for himself that when those dynamics are flipped by his ascendancy to Lion Mafia boss, he goes as far as eating herbivore meat in front of his underlings in order to secure his position. Ironically, this makes him sicker and weaker.
  • Happily Adopted: Louis was rescued from a bad situation, but seems to have had a happy, comfortable childhood with his adoptive family.
  • Hates Being Touched: Unless you are Haru, touching Louis is a very bad idea, especially if you are a large carnivore.
  • Sex for Solace: Louis has a LOT of issues, and since he is fully aware he can't be with Haru due to family obligations, it is possible (but not set in stone) he sleeps with her as a form of easing his internal pain just a bit.
  • Survivor Guilt: A two-fer. He deeply regrets that he was rescued from the livestock trade and his friends weren't, and also regrets what happened to Tem.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: By having Legosi eat his leg, Louis unwittingly gets his best friend a criminal record as a "Predatorial Offender" when police find them in the aftermath of the Riz incident; not only does this potentially ruin future work and college prospects for Legosi due to it basically being a herbivore method of singling out potential violent predators, but it also bars him from ever legally marrying Haru.
  • What Is This Feeling?: His reaction to being kissed by Juno when he returns to school after losing his leg. He plays it off as her being compassionate to him for losing his leg, but after he leaves, he privately reacts in this way, becoming nervous and worked up over her kiss. This is especially noticeable given both his stance on segregation and sexual experience with Haru.
  • You Kill It, You Bought It: Louis kills the leader of the Lion Mafia, and when the other lions arrive, he expects them to kill him. Instead they make him their new boss.

    Bill 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bill_9.jpg

A member of the drama club's acting team. He is very proud of his status as a carnivore and thus acts as a foil for timid Legosi.


  • Antagonist in Mourning: Bill actually becomes a bit depressed when Louis disappears. Without an herbivore to actually hate and project on, he just feels like a villain for wanting to indulge in his predatory urges and eat the meat of other animals.
  • Foil: Bill loves being a carnivore and takes every opportunity to embrace darker urges, unlike Legosi who hates being a carnivore and tries to be as delicate and harmless as possible.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Bill often tires of being told he can't indulge in his carnivorous desires.
  • Pet the Dog: Bill is quite kind towards Els. As he's a bit of a pig towards most female students regardless of species, others have noticed and questioned this. Bill himself isn't quite sure why, though it seems to be his own way of proving he's not a total brute.
  • Starter Villain: He is the first character Legosi comes into conflict with in the story due to their conflicting views on their predatory nature that culminates with them fighting each other on stage during the middle of a performance. However, some Character Development on Bill's part later and they eventually become friends of sorts.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: As of Chapter 78, it's clear that his friendship with Els and other herbivores in the Drama Club has resulted in a gradual but significant shift in Bill's character. To the point that he genuinely cherishes his friendship with them and -they- proclaim him to be a someone they trust, warts and all.

    Aoba 
A bald eagle member of the drama club. He acts as a mediator among the carnivores especially towards Bill.

    Juno 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/juno0.jpg

A gray wolf who joins the drama club's acting team as a first-year. She is bright and cheerful, but like many carnivores, she has internalized the hatred directed toward her kind. With her looks and glowing personality, she quickly gains the attention of Cherryton's males, but she has eyes only for Legosi.

Juno isn't quite as innocent as she appears.


  • Beware the Nice Ones: Juno is bright and cheerful, just don't get in the way of her ambition.
  • Closet Key: more in the lines of herbi- and carni-sexuality, but the Big Damn Kiss she planted on him when he comes back to school, clearly left Louis in emotional shambles and made him actively start thinking about the idea of prey-predator romance, despite disregarding the idea before. This probably wouldn't have happened if he didn't spend the last half a year among carnivores, which helped him realize he doesn't dislike them at all.
  • Driven by Envy / The Resenter: She is extremely envious and resentful of Haru for being the one Legosi wants to be with instead of her, especially since she can't figure out what he sees in her. As a result, besting Haru on the battlefield of love and taking Legosi back was one of her main goals for quite some time. Even after he made it very clear to her that he loves Haru, she still carries a torch for him and tries to decide out what to do next.
  • Fille Fatale: Juno proudly uses her looks and her predator strength to get what she wants.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Immediately after she learns that Legosi and Haru are romantically involved she starts intimidating Haru.
  • Love Bubbles: She is surrounded by these when she decides that she Legosi will be hers.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Beats out the actual sex-fiend Haru. Juno is frequently caught in the male gaze, gets intimately close to Louis and Haru, and gets all dolled up to seduce Legosi at the Meteor Festival.
  • Noble Bigot: When it is announced that the school will be segregated predators and prey and all the student organizations decide they are gonna stay integrated anyway, Juno is one of the few who seems to think maybe its a good idea. She quickly realizes though that this feeling just stems from her jealousy of Legosi and Haru's relationship and after a meeting with Haru shortly after, realizes she is jealous of Haru in other ways too.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: The new girl wolf who has been nothing but pleasant since she appeared suddenly pins Louis to the ground and warned him to stay out of her way. She may be a younger girl, but she's still a wolf.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: For Legosi, not long after meeting him.
  • Suit-Up of Destiny: According to Dem, she heavily upgraded her intended costume for hosting the Meteor Festival at the last moment; as we quickly find out, this was part of her plan to win over Legosi that evening.
  • The Pollyanna: Despite the occasional dark mood Juno is totally upbeat and positive.
  • The Rival: Declares herself to be one for Louis and then again with Haru for Legosi's affection.
    • This becomes rather Hilarious in Hindsight when she falls for Louis after coming to terms with the fact that Legosi doesn't like her like that. And then it's taken Up to Eleven when she goes to Legosi for advice on how to win Louis's heart.
  • Sacred First Kiss: While she was previously crushing on Legosi, something about Louis made her use it on the deer instead when they see each other again following his comeback from the Backalley Market. She's rather nervous when he doesn't (seemingly) react the way she expected, even when the kiss was a combination of just-realised attraction and spontanious decision-making, so even she had no idea what she wanted at that moment.
  • Yandere: Legosi will be hers, damn anyone who gets in her way.

    Pina 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pina.jpg

A dall sheep with a devil-may-care attitude who transfers into Cherryton's Drama Club after Louis' departure. He seems to take pleasure out of teasing others, especially Legosi, and is openly disdainful of carnivores.


  • Ambiguously Bi: It's not hard at all to read some of his interactions with Legosi as flirtatious. His very open approach to relationships doesn't help matters in the slightest.
  • Big Damn Heroes: After Legosi foolishly confronts the killer of Tem the Alpaca, who is a bear nearly twice Legosi's size who had jumped and nearly killed him before, all alone, Pina shows up and blackmails the killer into letting Legosi and him leave alive.
  • Bishōnen: By herbivore standards.
  • The Casanova: Pina is a die-hard ladies man who doesn't believe in the concept of monogamy and advocates free love without hindering oneself from subjective concepts such as morality. By his own confession, it bites him in the butt sometimes, when he mixes up the names of his many flings during make outs.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: He joins the drama club right after Louis leaves and quickly becomes one of the star actors. He is also a horned herbivore who quickly develops a quasi-antagonistic relationship with Legosi and who is more than he appears to be. He isn't a one for one replacement for Louis. However, he is very flamboyant while Louis tended to be more stoic.

    Riz 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rizbiz_0.jpg

A quiet and unassuming brown bear. He is widely liked and respected, but like most members of the drama club he has a hidden side. He inadvertently murdered Tem, his close friend, when he neglected to take his government mandated strength-reducing medication.


  • Alas, Poor Villain: The fact that he accidentally murdered Tem is made tragic by the fact that all bears are forced to take medication that limits their strength when they grow past 200cm in height. These come with awful side-effects. Tem's friendship made Riz think he could get by without his pills...
  • Black Bead Eyes: Unlike Haru's which reflect some light Riz' eyes are uncanny black dots.
  • Gentle Giant: So affable that most herbivores aren't immediately scared of him which is impressive given his overwhelming size.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: Riz is massive and seems to double in size when he really flexes.
  • Sanity Slippage: His murder of Tem was an accident when he neglected to take his meds. But it appears the event has given him a taste for killing. It's only accelerated in recent chapters, to the point that he now sincerely believes Tem -wanted- to be devoured and that eating Legosi will make him his "new best friend."
  • Self-Serving Memory: Riz remembers that Tem accepted him exactly as he was and remembers them hugging, before his memory jumps to after he had eaten Tem. However, from the first scene of the manga, we know that Tem died cursing his killer. Riz later admits that he was so happy that Tem saw through his outer facade to the "monster" inside, that he felt such affection for Tem for seeing his real self that he altered his memories to make them happier.
  • Super Strength: He has this even when compared to other carnivores and has to regularly take strength limiting medication to ensure to keep his strength in check. he stops taking them in preparation for his fight with Legosi.

Other Cherryton Animals

    Haru 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/haru2_2.jpg

Haru is the lone member of Cherryton School's gardening club. She is earnest and forthright which, in addition to her sexual promiscuity, has earned her a sleazy reputation. Haru is broadly confident, but a defeatist side sometimes peaks through her facade.

In spite of her caring nature she tends to keep people at an emotional distance.


  • All of the Other Reindeer: Haru is ostracized by males and females alike because of the (partially inflated) rumors of her promiscuity.
  • Alone in a Crowd: How Haru feels most of the time under the mask she has to wear to even be able to walk in the said crowd. And the crowd loves to remind her about it.
  • Anything That Moves: Haru usually sleeps with herbivores, but when she assumes Legosi wants to have some as well, she simply informs him he'll be her first carnivore lover and continues preparing for the act.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: Haru is an expert in asking them, and there are multiple time when what she says significantly affects Legosi's views and self-perception.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: While it's true that Haru slept with a lot of guys, many times her crimes against the school society are overblown by people who don't like her and are fairly mild compared to how the rumours portray them.
  • A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing: How guys who slept with Haru feel about her bedside manners, claiming that while she looks cute and adorable, she is a force to be reckoned with in bed. Even Haru herself apologises to Legosi for potentially being a bit rough when she starts seducing him inside the garden club's room.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: One of the main reasons Haru develops a conflicting attraction to Legosi is because he is the only boy she can think of that always treated her with respect and wanted to spend time with her for Haru the person, never putting sex into the equation.
  • Berserk Button:
    • She hates being treated like an adorable defenseless creature in any shape or form, and no matter who you are to her, doing so will earn you her verbally brutal resentment.
    • She also has very low tolerance for seeing carnivore-herbivore couples who act like such a romance is easy if you're simply progressive enough. Being in love with a wolf and knowing exactly how hard it is to make it REALLY work, she finds such displays of naivete and shallowness almost offensive.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Haru's no pushover. She rebuffs her bullies regularly.
  • Brutal Honesty: Due to her experiences, she's fully capable and willing to being more than frank about certain subject matters when speaking to other animals. As times goes by, she's beginning to try moderating herself, but so far with little success.
  • Caring Gardener: Being the only member of the gardening club makes her this, and seeing the school's garden state, she's really good at it. She can also accurately determine a plant's health and freshness just by briefly looking at it, and has a habit of tending to whatever plant in bad shape she comes across. Girls that don't like her sometimes weaponise this against her.
  • Cassandra Truth: After she goes to university and meets a new lion boyfriend of her rabbit classmate, she accurately analyses their relationship and tells them it's superficial and too immature to work without significant effort. The classmate rushes off, extremely pissed, but the boyfriend confronts her and confirms Haru's opinion. And when they try to half-assedly advance, it ends in a blood-filled disaster.
  • Catchphrase: A mild example, but when her friendship with Legosi was still young, she often said "That's really sweet of you" whenever he tried doing something that would make their interactions easier, especially when it was at the cost of his own comfort.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: The way she reacts to seeing Legosi cheerfully interacting with his flatmate Sebun without any context suggests she may have at least a hypothetical capability for this, especially when factoring in her established emotional dependency on him. Then again, their relationship is almost founded on Poor Communication Kills, so chances are they will be able to talk this out once the author allows them to properly spend time together again.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Haru is allergic to being treated like a defenseless creature and you have to give her a really good reason not to snarl at you if you do anything she may interpret as patronising.
  • The Cutie: Deconstructed. Everyone treats Haru like a cute, defenseless creature which has made her miserable over time. She's desperate to be taken seriously. Her usual remedy for this is sex because that is the only time she feels validated. As a result, anyone who treats her as an equal is very likely to make fast friends with her.
  • Ethical Slut: She has seemingly slept with like half of the male population of Cherryton and has a big reputation for it. However, she is a very kind and strong willed girl who sleeps around because it makes her feel empowered.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Haru is terrified when she is about to be eaten by a lion gangster, but thinking of Legosi helps her regain her composure and she decides to go down with a rabbit's pride . That is, understandably, until the said lion is done playing games with his soon-to-be-meal, but it still allowed her to avert this trope, as her actions brought her enough time for Legosi to find her.
  • First Love: Haru is definitely one for Legosi.
  • Friendless Background: Everything we know and see about Haru so far indicates this has been her situation for the majority of her life.
  • Friends with Benefits: With Louis. She wants to be more than just friends, but the other party won't have it.
  • Going Commando: Haru is forced to walk around without her underwear after escaping the Shishigami hideout. Her would-be killer forced her out of all of her clothes, and there was no time to pick them up afterwards, so the only item of clothing she could wear until returning to the dorms was the outer layer of Legosi's uniform that he gave her during the rescue. Considering their size difference, it worked almost like a long coat and no one passing them in public even noticed.
  • Good Bad Girl: She's very caring and pleasant, but she also has loads of sex.
  • Hidden Purpose Test: While Legosi sparked Haru's curiosity when he refused to sleep with her when given the chance, she still is partly on guard around him when they meet for the second time. As a result, when their time together draws to an end, she asks him "what does he view her as", to further verify his true intentions. Seeing him struggle to give her a quick answer, she decides he's trustworthy and cheerfully tells him they will make fast friends.
  • Holding Hands: Used as a metaphor for her conflicting feelings for Legosi. When he tells her he loves her while gazing at their city from atop of a hill together, she almost takes his hand when he isn't looking, but backs off at the last second, indicating she hasn't decided how she truly feels about him yet.
  • Hopeless Suitor: She really did fall for Louis, and he has feelings for her, but he's in an arranged engagement.
  • Hot And Cold: At times she can be verbally very harsh towards Legosi, but he thinks that most of the times she does that when she's trying to hide her true feelings from him or hasn't had enough time to properly process the situation they're in. Best shown when she is really pissed at Juno for ruining her emotional moment with Legosi during the Meteor Festival and quickly runs off. She's hardly nice to the wolf when he catches up to her, but he thinks deep down she was happy he came after her, leaving Juno behind.
  • Inconvenient Attraction: For the majority of the story one of her main problems with Legosi is that he is a big wolf rather than something smaller and closer to her own species that would've been far less problematic to properly date, both in terms of natural / behavioral compatibility and fitting in a society where the closer you are to your partner biologically the better. If not for that, she would've had much less qualms about pursuing him romantically, as even with all of his quirks, Legosi still has many qualities that made him nearly instantly likeable and desirable for her, both as a friend and potential new love interest.
  • Insecure Love Interest: Haru has a LOT of self-worth issues, resulting in her sleeps-around lifestyle and having problems with processing honest feelings of others towards her, as her interactions with Legosi prove.
  • Living Lie Detector: Following her rich sex life and extremely complicated love affair with Legosi, she gained this ability regarding relationships and how their participants try to advertise their specific cases.
  • Love Bubbles: Seeing these in the background of her panels is the easiest indication that someone just said or did something really precious for her.
  • Love Epiphany: Reversed. She figured out Legosi was in love with her when he stormed the Shishigumi gang hideout and fought everyone standing in his way to save her from being eaten alive - something that was stupid-level reckless and yet something he couldn't properly explain to her when asked what was he doing. He definitively confirmed that theory when he confessed to her the next day at the end of the Meteor Festival.
  • Ms. Fanservice: In some situations rivals Juno in this field, but takes her over in other: No other character is seen in their underwear, naked, semi-naked or in intimately attractive poses as often as her (though that's not saying much with the psychological focus of the story, and some situations involving them are nothing to laugh about ), even if nothing naughty is really ever shown due to strategic frame angles or obscuring objects.
  • My Instincts Are Showing: When Haru is eating with Legosi the sight of his fangs tearing into food terrifies her. It takes all of her constitution to remain calm.
  • Only Friend:Following Louis's departure, Legosi becomes Haru's only real companion. So when he distances himself from her to concentrate on becoming a stronger All-Loving Hero, it hits her really hard.
  • Really Gets Around: She has a well earned reputation for sleeping around. She does it because she feels its the only way anyone ever takes her seriously.
  • Satellite Love Interest: Averted and played with regardig Legosi at the same time. While he becomes a major part of her life over time, to the point where she can't imagine not having him around, she is still unsure what kind of relationship she wants from him and maintains her interests and individuality while looking for the answer. She also prefers to keep the new developments of their relationship between just the two of them and casually changes the subject when someone else asks her about it (mostly because her occassions to normally talk to someone else are so rare that she wants to use them to their fullest).
  • Screw the Money, I Have Rules!: Louis once offers to make donations to the gardening club's budget to help her out, but she refuses, answering that if he want to give her something, it should be his love.
  • Secret Identity: Based on what was shown so far, all of her family members seem to view her as a perfectly fine and balanced teenager and have no idea about her self-worth issues, not to mention her rich sex life sterning from them. It is still up in the air whether Legosi's short visit to the household to talk with Haru post-fight with Riz will affect the situation in any way - only her mother saw him, while the rest of the family thinks Haru was talking to a red panda thanks to her quick lie.
  • Sleeps with Everyone but You: Played with. The fact that she didn't sleep with Legosi isn't for the lack of an attempt; he simply declined when she tried to make it happen, and she was mostly busy with developing a genuinely emotional bond with him instead ever since.
  • Slut-Shaming: Haru is a constant victim of this, especially by girls whose boyfriends had any contact with her.
  • Suicide by Assassin: Played with in that the assassin is Legosi overtaken by his predatory instincts and the suicidal is Haru who has the bad luck of being nearby and who feels her life is so miserable that she might as well let him eat her if he wants to. She survives thanks to his externally-induced snap-out at the last moment, which allows them to meet under different circumstances later on.
  • Talking to Plants: Given how people tend to treat her, it's not surprising that she prefers their company.
  • Thousand-Yard Stare: Haru has this expression during the Meteor Festival due to everything that happened to her in the previous 24 hours, and is accompanied by a mind so clogged with thoughts and emotions that she literally can't run the garden club's shop booth.
  • Trauma Button: It wasn't a good idea for Haru to try becoming more intimate with Legosi on the same day she was rescued from Shishigumi gang. She genuinely wanted to do it, but she was extremely humiliated and almost killed by another carnivore just hours prior, still could see the fresh wounds Legosi acquired while saving her, and witnessed him going nearly feral and dealing a gruesome, bloody beatdown to her attacker in the process. All of this combined made her instincts go totally haywire, and she unconsciously tried to get eaten by Legosi by shoving her arm into his jaws when he tried to kiss her. While he was understanding about it, it left her very disturbed and they simply lay next to each other for the rest of the night.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Haru's experience when she was kidnapped by Shishigumi gang in a nutshell.
  • What Beautiful Eyes!: One of the most unique aspects of Haru's design are her real-life-rabbit eyes that are surprisingly expressive and captivating for some of the characters. The author is also capable of drawing them so that you can follow her line of sight, as her pupils are often subtly visible. They do however sometimes shift into more cartoony mode when she experiences strong emotions.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: Haru is more mature than the average third-year student especially in regards to relationships and intimacy. This is also one of the major reasons why Legosi falls for her so hard, as her words often push him to reexamine his own convictions, and doing so makes him grow as a person. As Juno puts it:
    "Why is this bunny so mature? [...] She talks like a grown-up, but sounds like a child."
    • Thanks to her relationship with Legosi, she's also growing to be a genuine expert in the field of carnivore-herbivore romance, up to the point where she can instantly analyse and evaluate the nature and prospects of another interspecies couple after watching them interact for mere minutes.
  • Worth Living For: While not truly suicidal unless certain conditions are met, Haru is desperately looking for a reason to live and is definitely miserable most of the time. Chances are that even with the unconventional beginning of their acquaintance, being around Legosi can finally fill that spot.

    Jack 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jack3.jpg

Both one of Legosi's roommates and his best friend for many years, Jack is a rather average guy. He is often weirded out by Legosi's behavior, especially involving Haru, but he is always there for his best friend.


  • Best Friend: He is sometimes confused by Legosi's behavior, but he is always willing to support him anyway.
  • Childhood Friends: He and Legosi have been friends for 12 years, since they were young kids.
  • Designer Baby: Not just him specifically, but his entire species, Labradors, were genetically altered from wolves to be more intelligent and less predatory than their more natural cousins. As a child, he received a lot of flak from other predators for consistently getting good grades.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Though normal in his case means he wants to be more like natural predators, more aggressive and predatory (see Designer Baby above). That is actually what causes him to talk to Legosi, a natural wolf, for the first time, though Legosi, who feels the exact opposite, had zero sympathies for him.
  • Ridiculously Average Guy: He doesn't really have any particular quirks about him. He's very nice, very loyal to Legosi, and that's about it at least from the audience's perspective.
  • Secret Keeper: He's one of the few individuals that knows Gosha is Legosi's grandfather being told by Legosi at his mother's funeral.
  • Wrong Assumption: After finding the rabbit porn magazine that Gouhin gave him, Jack starts wondering if Legosi has a deviant fetish for small animals when the truth is he just has a thing for Haru in particular.

    Rokume 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rokume.jpg

Rokume, the rattlesnake, is Cherryton's lone security guard. Her name, meaning six-eyes, refers to the eye patterns along her back. However, she is also the 'eyes' of the school. She uses her natural stealthiness to observe the school environment from the shadows.

She suffers a unique shame in being a limbless animal and holds a bit of envy for those with arms and legs. She has been watching Legosi for some time and wants him to live up to his potential.


  • Early-Bird Cameo: She first appears in chapter 16 as a wide, reptilian eye among the cheering students. She finally reveals herself to Legosi in Chapter 54.
  • Eye Motifs: She has four eye markings on her back. These combine with her own two eyes to explain the name Rokume or six eyes.
  • Secondary Sexual Characteristics: The only real hint of Rokume's gender is her long eyelashes.
  • Snakes Are Sinister: Subverted. Legosi is clearly being stalked in Chapter 54. Legosi thinks his follower is dangerous, and when Rokume suddenly appears she seems sinister. Then she apologizes, puts on her comically large security guard cap, and explains her interest in him.
  • Stealth Expert: Rokume is so effective at remaining hidden that she is thought of as a ghost story among students.

The Hidden Condo

    Sebun 
Sebun is a Merino sheep who works at a sporting goods chain. After having her hopes of a promotion crushed due to being a herbivore in a carnivore majority environment, she moves into the Hidden Condo.—-
  • Driven to Suicide: She attempted to kill herself following losing her chances of her dream position by getting eaten on a hybrid train. However, the person she tries to do this to is Legosi, who proceeds to push her out of the train, which snaps her out of it.

    Zaguan 

Zaguan is a seal whom has moved to land about six months ago and one of Legosi's neighbors.—-

  • Fish out of Water: Due to having lived in the sea until six months ago, he's still getting used to living on land.
  • Home Nudist: He strips the moment he's in his home, due to the fact sea animals normally do not wear clothing where he is from, to Legosi's initial shock.

Outside Cherryton

    Gouhin 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gouhin.jpg

Gouhin is a psychologist operating out of the back alley market. He attempts to rehabilitate carnivores who have gotten addicted to eating other animals. Gouhin abducts Legosi, thinking he too is craving live meat. Legosi's genuine desire to get along with Haru endears himself to Gouhin who takes the wolf under his wing.


  • Anti-Hero: Once he feels his patients have recovered from their meat addiction, he lets them go with no strings attached, even if he discovers and begins treating them after they killed someone. Legosi is shocked that the latter kind is never turned over to the authorities, but Gouhin claims that being part of the Backalley Market society, it's not his place to judge or punish animals he comes across.
  • Daddy Had a Good Reason for Abandoning You: At one point he reveals that he had a wife and a small son, but abandoned them because he felt his job of rehabilitating meat-craving carnivores was far too important and morally-complicated to involve them. He's also adamant he has never looked back ever since.
  • Combat Medic: He describes himself as the head doctor of the Backalley Market, but his main purpose is to rehabilitate carnivores craving for meat, and most of his patients were brought to his clinic by force and few almost killed him in the process. He also has a rather hands-on (well, fist-on) approach to his more aggresive wards and is competent enough to fight regular gangsters head-on if they threaten his work or friends.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Played with thanks to his species;it is impossible to tell when Gouhin opens or closes his eyes, adding to his rugged and powerful appearance.
  • Hammer Space: He once pulled out a fully assembled machine gun out of his trousers when fighting a larger party of adversaries.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: He rarely words his opinions politely, but Legosi always takes note of what he says and takes time to talk the given matter over with him.
  • The Mentor: Gouhin teaches Legosi about the dark places carnivores can go when they get a taste of flesh and looks out for him thereafter.
  • Panda-ing to the Audience: Gouhin is a panda, but with his gruffness and strength he really lives up to the 'bear' aspect.
  • Parental Substitute: Gouhin is this for Legosi, who often asks him for advice and treats him as his confidante. Poor panda takes turns in being entertained and annoyed by listening about the young wolf's social and romantic struggles.
  • Smoking Is Cool: He almost always has a cigarette in his mouth.

    Ibuki 

A lion from the Shishigumi, a criminal group of lions based in the Back-Alley Market.


    Cosmo 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cosmo_9.jpg

A hot-ticket okapi stripper (and occasional prostitute) in the Back-Alley Market. She isn't overly concerned for her well-being, hence her incredibly dangerous occupation. Cosmo derives empowerment from stripping for carnivores, feeling that she is the one in control when the males hunger and lust after her.


    Gosha 

Legosi's grandfather and sole living relative. He and Legosi have a strained relationship. He is a komodo dragon who entered into an interspecies relationship with a wolf, fathering Legosi's mother. Because he is a poisonous reptile, he has faced much discrimination throughout his life.


  • Absurdly Youthful Father: He had Legosi's mother when he was a teenager, and is 54 in the current day. This was unintentional, as the odds of conception between interspecies romance were 1 out of 500. He had to abandon his goal of becoming the Sublime Beastar with his friend Yafya to take care of his child, which affected Yafya's views on interspecies romance to this day.
  • Badass Pacifist: Whilst he is a badass, he is also the one who raised Legosi to be a pacifist. Subverted, as whilst he is a pacifist, Gosha also believe pacifism only has meaning when the strong uphold it. He also refuses to fight back against Yafya when he is attacked in his house,worrying that he may have accidentally poisoned him the whole time.
  • Berserk Button: Downplayed. Though he goes a bit more into Tranquil Fury it's obvious he's absolutely pissed at Yafya for bringing Legosi to catch Meron, leading to Legosi being comatose and it's only their previous partnership that's keeping Gosha from flying into a rage if he doesn't wake up.
  • Broken Pedestal: What he turned into in Yafya's eyes following his abandonment of their shared goal of becoming Beastars and protecting society together, in order to take responsibility for his new family. Yafya is bitter about this perceived betrayal even 36 years later and it significantly affected his stance on interspecies relationships, and even just long-term relationships in general.
    • Although recent chapters have revealed that Yafya is not so above it all either, considering how he's all too glad to be savagely beating other carnivores and worse.
  • Character Tics: When he is very happy he excretes a large amount of poison, so much that it overflows from his mouth to form a visible puddle.
  • Cool Old Guy: Now we know where Legosi got his badassery from. Even in his older age, he can kick the asses of multiple avian thugs. When he was younger, he and his friend Yafya would go out on patrol and prevent crimes from occurring. Both were so good at it that they were both considered for the role of Sublime Beastar.
  • Extreme Doormat: He fully accepts this fate as someone belonging to a shunned species yet wanting to live in the society, making a fuss when someone tries to break unwritten rules involved (especially staying under the radar and not bothering other species even indirectly). In this case it's important to remember that living this way is completely his choice that made life for him and young Legosi easier, and he can stand up to (and wipe the floor with) anyone trying to actively harm or his family.
  • Love at First Sight: The day after he rescued Legosi's grandmother, they started dating.
  • Poisonous Person: A given since he is a komodo dragon, his poison is lethal to most animals. This has caused him to face much discrimination, being forced to sit at tables furthest away from the entrance at restaurants, to not being legally recognised as Legosi's grandfather.
  • Rescue Romance: He rescued a female grey wolf from a fur poacher, ended up in a relationship with her and parenting Legosi's mother.

    Leano 

Legosi's mother and Gosha's daughter.


  • Beneath the Mask: Throughout her life she played up being a social and lovable canine, but deep down had the disposition of a reserved reptile even before she started to physically show signs of having reptile blood.
  • Driven to Suicide: Killed herself five years prior to the start of the series when her komodo dragon genes caused her to grow scales all over her body.
  • Hide Your Otherness: She spent her life hiding her komodo dragon heritage and passing for a full grey wold in order to escape the stigma of being a hybrid. However, this only lead her into a situation where she could not handle being unable to keep these appearances. Legosi notes that she was always someone abnormally fixated on appearances, likely a consequence of this.
  • Mixed Ancestry: She was a grey wolf-komodo dragon hybrid. In her case, she looked a pure grey wolf when she was younger save her immunity to her father's poison and only started to grow scales when she turned 19. By the time she killed herself, a good majority of her body was covered in scales and one eye became reptile-like.
  • Parental Neglect: She spent a good chunk of Legosi's elementary school life before her suicide locked up in her room once her body become covered in scales. She apologizes to Legosi for not paying more attention to him, admitting her apology is empty being dead.
  • Spiritual Advisor: She appears to Legosi when he's on the boundary of life and death following his encounter with Meron.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Looks very much like her mother and looks like Legosi as well.
  • Teen Pregnancy: She had Legosi at 19 with an amateur actor following her beginning to grow scales and thus be unable to fully pass as a pure grey wolf.

    Yafya 

A horse who is the Sublime Beastar. He has the role of monitoring criminal activity and authorising media reporting of criminal activity. He was also best friends with Legosi's grandfather Gosha many years ago, with the dream of both of them becoming the Sublime Beastar.


  • Asskicking Equals Authority: How he got the position of Sublime Beastar. He and Gosha would go out as teenagers and hunt down criminals, both of them were so effective that they were both in the running for Sublime Beastar. He still goes out to deal with criminals and prevent the abuse of herbivores by carnivores.
  • Bash Brothers: In his younger years, he was this with Gosha, fighting crime and having each other's backs to the point where they promised to become Beastars together. This ended up being Played for Drama when Gosha stopped fighting to look after his family, making Yafya feel both incomplete and rage towards Gosha to this day.
  • Benevolent Boss: Comes with the territory of being the Sublime Beastar.
  • Berserk Button: When he meets up with Gosha for the first time in 36 years, he flies into a rage when Gosha calls him the Beastar, attacking him and trashing his house for abandoning him all those years ago.
    • It happens again when Legosi comments that he likes the imperfections in society, indirectly insulting Yafya's goal. Which angers him greatly enough to attack Legosi unprovoked, after telling him what he ate.
  • Blindfolded Vision: He wears a blindfold most of the time because of his wide range of vision. He doesn't want to see the worried looks of herbivores, and saves taking off his blindfold for when he needs to go into action. In spite of wearing a blindfold, he can still read documents.
  • Broken Pedestal: Due to his perceived abandonment by Legosi's grandfather, Gosha, Yafya has vented all of his frustrations and resentments he has towards Gosha onto all carnivores; regardless of whether they're criminals or not. When he invites Legosi over for dinner, he tells Legosi that the carrots he fed him where made with the corpses of the Blood Bone drug dealers as fertiliser. Horrifying Legosi as he realises what the graffiti messages meant.
    • What’s worse is that he may not be limiting his source of fertiliser to just the criminals, as hints in the Ghetto's graffiti messages suggest that he’s become infamous for murdering carnivores. This is even indirectly confirmed when he said, "When you’re the Beastar, you can be granted any wish of your choosing." Giving a valid reason why he was called the Black Devil by carnivores.
  • Corrupt Politician: As a Beastar, he's allowed anything his heart desires. As such, he's allowed to get away with the literal murder of carnivores; who he then uses as fertilizer for his carrot farm.
  • Dented Iron: He can kick hard enough to shatter concrete walls and destroy metal tankers. However, his age is starting to catch up to him. In one chapter, he gets frustrated and kicks a concrete wall hard enough to break it. He then needs to call his doctors to come and check out his leg. They warn him that due to his age, his body can't take the stress and strain he puts on it and that he should seriously consider handing his duties down to a successor.
  • Fantastic Racism: Expect to be bullied, insulted, or otherwise rejected by Yafya if you're a carnivore (the only exceptions to the rule are Gosha, who is a former BFF, and Legosi who is Gosha's grandson). If you piss him off, he WILL brutally murder you and use your remains as fertilizer for his carrots.
  • Foreshadowing: In his first appearance, the canine police chief becomes nervous and visibly starts sweating after he notices that Yafya is making carrot juice. This foreshadows that Yafya is using carnivores he has killed as fertiliser for his carrots.
  • Heteronormative Crusader: Before a mission, right after sleeping with a female horse, Yafya describes such a relationship as the standard norm. When he leaves, he thinks on the issue and states that a normal, heterosexual relationship should be a symbol of peace. Overlaps with Fantastic Racism.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: As several tropes about him pointed out already, it`s hard not to see he has a lot in common with predators who feed on herbivores.
  • Hypocrite: He has nothing but disdain for carnivores and hybrids, criticizes them at every waking moment and disapproves of cannibalism. No one comments, however, on how contradictory it is that he technically consumes flesh too: using carnivore bodies as fertilizer should be considered a distant form of cannibalism. It's a case of Loophole Abuse that has yet to be addressed (though considering his position, it's probably difficult for anyone to bring up).
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: There is the hint that his abandonment issues might be something more than what the reader is lead to believe; when Yafya beat down Legosi and demanded he apologize for being a carnivore, he was ecstatic when Legosi "apologized" and saw it as a win against Gosha. Suggesting that he feels like Gosha is the better person of the two of them, possibly due to Gosha finding more to life than just the title of Beastar.
  • Karma Houdini: As stated above; he's infamous to predators for murdering them, but his title of Beastar makes him practically untouchable. And given the extent of diplomatic immunity his title grants him, it's no wonder how he's been able to avoid scrutiny under the law when he's got direct hands in legal proceeding.
  • Nice Guy: Only (and only if) you're a herbivore. If you're a carnivore (or worse, a hybrid), welp. You're on your own.
  • Red Baron: To the general public, he's called the Sublime Beastar; to the people in The Back Alley Market, he's called the Black Devil. He got these names because he's seen by most herbivores as their savior, but to carnivores he's seen as the devil; and with justifiable reason for the latter.
  • The Leader: He is this for all of society. He keeps the police in check by being the one who decides what predation crimes can be reported to the public. This is how he stumbles across Legosi's case, recognises that he is related to Gosha and decides to monitor him in the future.
  • The Resenter: It is clear as day that Yafya resents Gosha for leaving him for a female wolf, which extends towards Gosha's grandson Legosi.
  • Master of Disguise: He poses as zebra inspector to a milk production factory. His mannerisms and posture are convincing enough that none of the carnivores are aware that it is him.
  • Not So Different: From the carnivores who feed on herbivores. He kills carnivore criminals and uses their bodies a fertiliser for his carrots. There are also hints that he is not limiting himself to criminals, and that he has been murdering carnivores for fertiliser. The Beastar who is meant to protect society from criminals and predators engages in acts which are just as depraved and predatory.
    • For a more specific individual to individual example, one could say this trope applies with him and Meron, a half cheetah-half gazelle hybrid he starts to hunt for in issue 124. Both animals kill innocent targets to satisfy a personal need, with Yafya killing predators (even those who didn`t do anything wrong) to fertilize his carrot garden while Meron kills elephants to satisfy his repressed predator side. Both are also prone to sudden outbursts of violence, with Legosi directly experiencing it from both of them.
  • Not So Stoic: His inner monologue shows that he feels the burden of protecting the city for 36 years by himself, but he really loses it when he meets Gosha again, attacking him in his house in revenge for abandoning him for a female wolf.
  • Older Than They Look: Yafya looks like he's in his twenties. He's actually in his early fifties.
  • One Degree of Separation: The current Sublime Beastar was best friends with Legosi's grandfather Gosha, and is now aware of Legosi's predation record.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: He despises any carnivore or hybrid he comes across, with the most basic reason being that they were born that way (and thinks that alone deserves an apology). He also has contempt for any sexuality outside of heterosexuality, as his commentary at the end of chapter 127 has him make insulting statements towards some members at a party being romantic and lustful towards members of their similar sex.
  • Shrouded in Myth: Unlike previous Beastars, Yafya does not make public appearances or engage publicly in politics. This has lead most of society to consider him an urban myth made by the police to scare criminals. In reality, this may have been done intentionally to hide Yafya's illicit activity of murdering carnivores.
  • Super Strength: He is strong enough to destroy a large iron tank with a single kick.
  • We Can Rule Together: When he was a teenager, he had this goal with Legosi's grandfather Gosha, as opposed to one of them being selected over the other. This didn't stick once Gosha quit to take care of his child with Legosi's grandmother. This has had such an impact on Yafya that he now firmly believes that interspecies relationships lead to disaster many years Gosha left him. He makes this offer again when he meets Gosha after 36 years.

    Meron (SPOILERS!) 
The head of an illegal ivory and tusk trade. He is a leopard-gazelle hybrid and the main antagonist after the Cherryton Highschool murders. Legosi is recruited by Yafya to arrest him in return for removing his predation offence from public record.
  • Evil Counterpart: He is this to Legosi. Both are hybrids, but unlike Legosi, who is a normal wolf with a few Komodo characteristics, Meron is a horrific amalgamation of two animals. While Legosi seeks to avoid meat and align himself along the lines of a herbivore, Meron embraces his carnivore side. While Legosi is gentle and caring, Meron is murderous and manipulative.
    • He later becomes one to Louis during his time as the leader of the Shishigumi. While Louis lead them and commanded their respect, Meron leads them through fear, and is not above threatening or torturing his gang to get them to fall in line. In fact, the Shishigumi are still more loyal to Louis than they are to Meron to where one willingly puts down his own pride to keep Meron from discovering Louis hiding nearby.
  • Interspecies Romance: He's the product of an interspecies romance like Legosi, specifically a leopard-gazelle hybrid. This leaves him with gazelle horns and a leopard's face and fangs.
  • The Leader: Becomes the new leader of the Shishigumi. It's clear they hate it and follow him out of fear.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He manipulates Legosi's feelings about his hybrid status (and indirectly his guilt over his mother's suicide due to it) and his future with Haru to escape arrest. He pays Legosi with a bullet through the chest.
  • Super Senses: He has better senses than any other animal, and uses them to keep control over the Shishigumi. If he smells meat on them, he kills them without remorse.
