The son of Kensaku and Midori Isami, two scientists known for their research on the Organic Engine, Yuu start the series as part of an Antibody squad tasked with protecting the ancient sentient space craft known as Orphan, alongside his mentor Kanan. 17 years old, because of his upbringing he's mature but very introverted and untrusting, with great difficulties in relating to other people. His life, however, takes a drastic turn the day he meets a mysterious girl called Hime Utsumiya piloting a newborn Brain Powerd. That, and his deep sensitivity, eventually bring him to question the Reclaimers' ways and defect to the Novice Noah's side...

Her life experiences made her easy to open up to, and willing to listen to others, and she believes no one should be judged for how they react to their lives' happenings. Thanks to her great capacity for empathy, she manages to quickly come to an understanding with a newborn Brain Powerd who was born in front of her eyes... and one year later, she becomes part of a resistance group who opposes the Reclaimers' ambitions...

Quincy Issa/Iiko Isami

Voiced by: Kumiko Watanabe (Japanese), Jennifer Copping (English)

The cold and ruthless 20-year-old leader of Orphan's Antibody squads, Quincy aka Iiko is Yuu's older sister, but she tries her best to distance herself from her family, even going as far as to change her name in her bid to emerge and realize herself independently of her parents. This goes as far as to make her develop two personalities - most of the time, the dominant one is the fanatical Quincy Issa who would not hesitate to sacrifice anything, even her own life or her own brother, to realize Orphan's will. However, underneath all that, it is still possible to catch some glimpses of the warm-hearted girl she once was...

Midori Isami

Kensaku's wife and assistant. She merely marries him to progress research into organic energy and to gain a solid power base to become the leader of Orphan.

  • Evil Matriarch
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul
  • Unholy Matrimony: Subverted with Kensaku. They are more than happy to stay together, but there isn't any real emotional connection there.
  • Your Cheating Heart: Also subverted. She sleeps with Jonathan Glenn on multiple occasions, but there isn't any more real emotional connection there than there is with her husband.

Jonathan Glenn

Voiced by: Gou Aoba (Japanese), Kirby Morrow and Ward Perry (English)

20 years old, Jonathan is Orphan's best Gran Cher pilot aside from Quincy, but his skills are offset by his arrogant, somewhat unstable personality. He often appears unable to control his own emotions, despite the fact that he can also be machiavellian in his plans. He is completely loyal to Orphan and to the Reclaimers' cause, but has no love for the Isami family - with the exception of Quincy, and even then he seems to regard her as just a useful pawn, for all that he seems to have sex with them an awful lot. His skills and grim determination, rooted in his own troubled past, will make him one of the most dangerous opponents for the Novice Noah crew...

  • Dark Action Girl
  • Not So Different: She and Higgins.
