"God's not in today. He's on vacation in Vegas."

An easy-going, sunglasses-wearing nun with the so-called Church Of Violence. Revy's confidante and only friend. Also an undercover agent for the CIA.

  • Badass Boast: Her retort to Chang.
    "And another thing, smack talk has no effect on those stronger than you. You and your men have the power to bring men and whole companies to your heels, but we have the power to bring entire nations to our heels, if not to ruin."
  • Beneath the Mask: The ending of the Greenback arc and her role in the El Baile De La Muerte arc indicate that what we see of Eda is mainly a front, and in complete contrast to the bombastic and easygoing drunk she behaves like when on her undercover job, she is actually a cold and calculating Consummate Professional.
  • Berserk Button: Anyone who puts a bullet in the church had better damn well be prepared to go to war. She doesn't appreciate apprentice priest Rico calling her "sis," either.
    "That's SISTER to you, jackass!"
  • Clark Kenting: Played With. She dons a pair of sunglasses, a different hairstyle, and a nun habit as a disguise. Her body language changes significantly: as Eda the Nun she's loud, boisterous, and drawn much more angular while as Eda the CIA agent she's quiet, composed, and serious. Though it's a decent disguise major part of why she's not been found out is because nobody knows of the deception. When someone familiar with her role in the CIA sees her, it takes him a bit, but he eventually sees through the disguise.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Second to Revy in the swearing department.
  • The Cheerleader: When de-aged in the omakes.
  • Cool Big Sis: To Rico because he's new. She insists he calls her "Sister".
  • Cool Shades: She always wears them — the few times we see her without them, she's either in disguise or otherwise acting officially as a field officer, versus the normal "undercover" role.
  • Dark Action Girl: Along with many other characters in the show, she's a vile criminal.
  • Gainax Bounce: There is no way in hell that she wears a bra whilst in her civvies.
  • The Glasses Come Off: Any time Eda takes her sunglasses off, she becomes ice-cold and dead serious. And it's scary how much of a change it is.
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl: Fufills the role of heavy drinker despite being a nun.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: What her eyes looks like under her glasses. It compliments the cold and professional disposition she assumes when not wearing them quite well.
  • Jesus Was Way Cool: She calls Him a trickster that turns water into wine.
  • The Lad-ette: While not as much as a hardass like Revy, she drinks more then Revy, sleeps around more (as in a little) than Revy, and still kicks copious amounts of ass.
  • Naughty Nuns: She's very attractive for a nun. And if she was ever under a vow of chastity, she told it to fuck off years ago.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: You'll see her coming anyway, unless she's really serious.
  • Number Two: She seems to be the second-in-command of the Church of Violence reporting to Yolanda herself and ordering the other members around. Even after it's revealed that Eda may be the most powerful figure in Roanapur, the Church seems to be more of an ally rather than a pawn and she still has to ask Yolanda for their services.
  • Nun Too Holy: The most prominent example on the show.
    "What the hell's your problem?! Don't you know what Jesus said in Luke 11? 'Don't trouble me. The door's locked' — got that, bitch?"
  • Shipper on Deck: She seems to have taken an interest in Rock/Revy, although that's when she's not hitting on Rock herself… which could be an act, and if it is, it's a damn good one.
  • Stripperific: When not wearing her nun outfit, she's showing a lot of skin.
  • The Tease: She frequently comes on very heavily to Rock, much to his embarrassment and Revy's annoyance. As if the poor guy didn't have enough stress in his life...
  • They Call Me Mister Tibbs: "That's SISTER to you, jackass!"
  • Triangle Shades: She wears a minor example, possibly to note her shady nature.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Revy. Will point a gun at each one second and then have casual small talk the next.
  • Weapon of Choice: A Glock 17L.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: When she's not in her nun habit, she dresses similarly to Revy.
  • The Woman Behind the Man: Between her CIA connections, the Ripoff Church's intel network, and her own deals with Mr. Chang, Eda is definitely one of the major players in, if not technically the true ruler of Roanapur. The only person with any suspicion of this is Rock, whom Eda warns not to dig any further.

    Sister Yolanda
Voiced by: Akiko Takeguchi (JP), Shirley Millner (EN)

"My dear, you could learn a thing or two from that young man, you know. In the end, waving your gun around doesn't work. You'll never do good business like that."

Leader of the Church of Violence. Very likely has a background in intelligence herself, as she is fully aware of Eda's status, and acts as an informant/confidante to her. But they might just have some kind of deal with the CIA.

  • Affably Evil: Seems like just a benevolent, soft spoken elderly lady, aside from the eyepatch. And, you know, the weapons dealing and the drug smuggling.
  • Bling-Bling-BANG!: A gold-plated Desert Eagle.
  • Church Militant: Although it's unclear whether its members are actually religious or are just using the Church as a front, they are still holy scripture reciting, habit wearing, and gun carrying weapons smugglers.
  • Cool Old Lady: Wouldn't it be awesome if your grandma was more like this?
  • Corrupt Church: If her church is a genuine house of worship instead of a mere facade, then it is a lot more involved in drugs and weapons than love and forgiveness.
  • Eyepatch of Power: The picture says it all: eyepatch, gun, and grin.
  • Hand Cannon: A gold-plated and engraved Desert Eagle to be exact. And this 70-year-old lady can fire it with one hand.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: According to one Omake, before she was a wrinkled old lady, she looked quite a bit like Marilyn Monroe.
  • Lady of War: Very cultured and very well versed in the Bible. Mixes this rather well with being able to blow your shit up with a gold plated Desert Eagle.
  • Never Mess with Granny: Especially not when she's firing a freakin' Desert Eagle one-handed.

    Ricardo a.k.a Rico
Voiced by: Tetsuya Kakihara (JP), Simon Hill (EN)

Eda's assistant and a newcomer in the Church Of Violence, who makes his debut in the "Greenback Jane" arc.
