Protagonists

Sogo Amagi

A 14-year-old boy seeking to prove his mother's theory about a red gem true. He is first seen in an Abandoned Mine. He survives a near miss from a meteor, finding the red gem he was searching for in his hand.

  • Chekhov's Skill: All his time playing on hoverboards in the early episodes becomes very useful in episode 9.
  • Advertisement:
  • Crash-Into Hello: Played with. When his scooter bike malfunctions (courtesy of the red gem Sogo finds) he crashes into Kaon. It just happens that he and Kaon knew each other previously.
  • Curbstomp Battle: Is on the receiving end of one from "Black Moura" in episode 10. It's justified in that 1.) Moura had to hold back because Felia was inside "Black Moura", and 2.) if "Black Moura" is Krone's secretary, she is older and has both far more experience and combat training.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: Felia leaves him to go make Earth viable for life again.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Happens on occasion. The most notable case is when Kaon was driving in episode 6, and he looked a little too long at Felia's chest.
  • Fell Into The Cockpit: Happens quite literally in episode 9 as a result of Gus shooting at him.
  • Foreshadowing: Quite a bit. As early as episode 1, his talent with the hover-board proved he had the knack for being an ace pilot. In episode 2, he used hoverboards to target the weak points of a construction mecha with moderate success. In episode 6, he showed he had better combat instincts than Moura by telling her the perfect moment to use her hand blast for defeating multiple armed mecha while avoiding civilian casualties.
  • Advertisement:
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Played realistically. Whenever he encounters an usual machine or object, he will patiently, carefully and lovingly take it apart, analyze how each and every piece works, and then put it back together again, sometimes even better than new.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Averted. The "goggle" he usually wears on his head is actually a powerful analytic tool. It can even tell the difference between safe and poison mushrooms. Too bad nobody thought to use it before Roman started cooking in episode 8.
  • Happily Adopted: By Do Mon.
  • Hostage Situation: He finds himself in one in episode 10. "Black Moura" spares his life in exchange for Felia surrendering and telling him to take a hike.
  • Instant Expert: When it comes to a machine, he can figure out how it works very, very quickly. He does it in both episodes 7 and 9.
  • Advertisement:
  • Luminescent Blush: Showed one in episode 1 when Kaon got a little too close to him in the pit.
  • Non-Action Guy: Combat is not his forte. At least not until episode 9.
  • Plot-Based Voice Cancellation: Happens in episode 9 while fighting Gus.
    Sogo: "How dare you insult Do Mon. Do Mon is my..." (Beam attack) (Ifrit blows up)
  • Took a Level in Badass: Gus thought victory was a Foregone Conclusion in episode 9. He couldn't have been more wrong.
  • Wise Beyond His Years: Despite being a young teenager, he's the most level-headed character in the whole series.

Felia

Voiced by: Ayaka Ohashi

A mysterious girl that Sogo and Kaon find inside a giant red gem under their home city after falling down a large pit.

  • Break the Cutie: Alfried, Gus and Puck keep trying. By episode 9, they've all lost patience and are going for "Kill the cutie" instead.
  • Cheerful Child: She's especially happy around Kaon and Sogo.
  • Curious as a Monkey: At first. She was very easily excited by just about everything the rest of the cast took for granted. Especially the mascot of Gift, the cat-pigeons.
  • Daydream Surprise: Suffers one in episode 12 as Black Moura abducts her and tries to steal her powers.
  • Distressed Damsel: Frequently. Justified by the fact that an entire army armed with Humongous Mecha are constantly after her, and there's a nigh-omniscient Stalker with a Crush that loves to cause massive mayhem targeting her as well.
  • Idiot Hair: She's got two feathery "bangs" on the top of her head, in addition to an overly-long bang right between them.
  • Living Macguffin: The imperial army calls her a "Lima" and are desperate to seize her. They absolutely refuse to say why. Councilor Krone finally succeeds in episode 10, using a "Black Moura."
  • Mystical Waif: A mysterious young girl who Sogo and Kaon find inside a crystal and is sought by the villains for some reason. There's a great deal about her that has yet to be revealed.
  • Nature Spirit: According to Moura, she's the very source of life for the planet, Gift.
  • Plot-Relevant Age-Up: Experiences this in episode 5.
  • Psychic Powers: She has powers of telekinesis. They're so refined, she can make vegetables dance in mid-air.
  • Supernatural Is Purple: Her powers manifest with a purple aura.
  • Traumatic Superpower Awakening: Twice in episode 5.
  • What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: Lampshades it in episode 6, and asks the bride at a wedding ceremony. She is given the most heartwarming answer ever.
    "Love means their happiness is your happiness. Their sorrow is your sorrow."
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has light blue hair.

Moura

Voiced by: Inori Minase

A small, talking, rock-like, half-snake, half-caterpillar creature that calls itself Felia's guardian. She can transform into a mecha among other things.

  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: She can make her tail long and sharp enough to cut through steel doors like a hot knife through butter.
  • Head Pet: Does this with Sogo from time to time, obviously when not in Mecha form.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Starts using a sword when piloted by Sogo in episode 9.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: How she lost the battle in episode 10. She returns the favor in episode 12.
  • Ms. Exposition: Explains a few things about Felia from time to time.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: There are a couple of notable instances. One where a startled Sogo accidentally causes her to go into mecha mode, the other where Moura seals Felia's powers before Sogo and Kaon go to school, leaving poor Felia defenseless after Do Mon foolishly leaves her unattended in episode 4.
  • Overly Long Name: Mo Litika Sheshes Ura.
  • Restraining Bolt: Is on both sides of this. She serves as one for Felia's powers while the symbol on Sogo's hand serves as one for her.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Most of the cast thinks so, at least the ones who aren't villains.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Episode 8 reveals that she's a girl, or sees herself as one.
  • Shapeshifter Baggage: Is considerably bigger and heavier as a mecha than as the snake-catterpillar thing.
  • Team Pet: Usually fills this role when not in combat.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: She and Sogo took an immediate and comedic dislike for one another when they met. By episode 8, they've grown out of it. The primary reason, according to Moura anyway, is that Sogo's proven himself a worthy co-guardian of Felia.

Kaon Lanchester

Voiced by: Rie Takahashi

A red-headed female friend of Sogo, and Arranged Marriage fiance to Roman.

  • Arranged Marriage: Was set up with one before the story began.
  • Bare Your Midriff
  • Babies Ever After: In the end credits, there's a picture of her, Roman, and three children.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: She has rather obvious feelings for her old friend, Sogo.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She starts showing signs of this in episode 6. On the one hand, she declined playing the role of the bride's maid. On the other hand, she didn't want Felia to play it either since the one playing the bride's maid often winds up becoming the bride with "the best man" becoming the groom. She then has to stop and wonder why she's acting like that.
  • Cool Big Sis: She adores Felia and acts as a doting older sister to her.
  • Imaginary Love Triangle: After episode 6, she has this mindset towards herself, Felia, and Sogo.
  • Luminescent Blush: She first showed one in episode 1 while in the pit with Sogo. She shows them on occasion through the series' run.
  • Runaway Fiancé: She was quite desperate to escape from the Arranged Marriage in episode 1.
  • Shorttank: She would appear to be this. She even calls herself a tomboy in episode 6.

Roman Valstov

Voiced by: Takuma Terashima

Kaon's Arranged Marriage fiance. Apparent Heir to the Valstov family fortune and company.

  • Arranged Marriage: With Kaon.
  • Big Damn Heroes: In episode 6, 8, and 9, he comes to the rescue.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Loves to shout random names for his attacks while in his mecha.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: His behavior is always just a bit off.
  • Confusion Fu: Manages to pull this off with a mecha.
  • Cool Car: He owns one.
  • Destructive Savior: Has shot at mechs that were holding Felia on several occasions. Most notable in episode 6 where Kaon has to warn him about accidentally hitting Felia.
  • Entitled to Have You: Towards Kaon, however, his is the least malicious in the story, and that's saying a lot. While he does have a genuine crush for her, he is willing to respect her feelings and not force her into the Arranged Marriage in episode 10.
  • Honor Before Reason: Claims to seek the Arranged Marriage for his family's honor. The real reason is unclear.
  • Large Ham: Loves to make loud, dramatic entrances.
  • Spoiled Brat: Kaon accuses him of being one in episode 1.
    Kaon: "Good. Then you can stop acting like a cradled child!"
  • Supreme Chef: One of his very few good points is that he can cook very well. The cast notes that the way he was cooking mushrooms in episode 8 smelled delicious. Unfortunately, it gets subverted very soon afterwards because he couldn't tell the difference between edible wild mushrooms and poisonous ones.

Otto Moto

Voiced by: Ayaka Suwa

Roman's servant. He and Roman are always seen together.

Antagonists

Gus Stewart

Voiced by: Kenji Hamada

The first imperial commander sent to collect "The Lima," which happens to be Felia.

  • Ace Custom: He's granted a mech called "The Ifrit." Just going from what we've seen in action, it appears to be faster, more durable and able to wield more firepower than the standard issue army mechs. In episode 9, it seems to have a much sturdier cockpit too as it survives an attack far stronger than what has utterly destroyed the cockpit of standard issue mechs.
  • The Alcoholic: Episode 1 has him drinking from a whiskey flask while on duty. To say that he's got discipline problems is an understatement. He goes back to the flask in episode 10.
  • Blood Knight: Seems to get orgasmic in combat. By episode 5, the subtext is dropped and he outright demands to be "made to climax."
  • The Bully: In addition to his blood knight tendencies, he doesn't just enjoy fighting, he enjoys tormenting his opponents. Every single time he gains the upper hand against Moura, he just can't resist the urge to berate and humiliate her. By episode 9, he completely abandons any pretext of a fair fight, and starts shooting at both Sogo and Felia, who are unarmed teenagers. Especially heinous is that he shoots at Felia while she's in the grip of a Mecha and can't move, all while berating Sogo for "making Do Mon weak."
  • Easily Forgiven: The ending credits have him running Do Mon's restaurtant.
  • Freak Out!: Has a truly spectacular one in episode 10 after finding out from Agent Honeybee that Do Mon is dead.
  • Insane Troll Logic: Emphasis on insane. In episode 9, he ignores orders, abandons his post, and chases down Sogo because Do Mon utterly humiliated him in episode 8, not only yelling at Moura "victory is all that matters. You taught me that.. DO MON!" but then demanding that Sogo summon Do Mon, threatening Felia in the process, despite clearly seeing that Sogo had no means to do so, and knowing full well that Do Mon was somewhere else far away.
  • It's All About Me: Thinks that Do Mon retiring from the army and taking up a civilian life is nothing more than a direct attack at himself, and he blames Sogo for it.
  • I Was Just Passing Through: Played with in episode 11. While his actions are ultimately of benefit to Sogo and Moura, he is really only interested in avenging Do Mon.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Shooting at Sogo to torment him, leads to him Falling into the Cockpit.
  • Offscreen Villain Dark Matter: Gus shows up in episode 11 with a second Ifrit. We are never shown where he got it.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: His hair hides half his face. Doesn't seem to affect his vision or depth perception, but we really don't know why he does this. In his flashbacks, he had a perfectly acceptable hairstyle.
  • Virtue Is Weakness: He calls Do Mon "weak" for being a civilian in good standing as opposed to his "strong" self, who is at best a serious discipline-issue problem soldier.
  • War Is Glorious: On several occasions he cries out that his "war is not over." In episode 9, he explicitly yells "My war has just begun!" right before Sogo blows up the Ifrit with him inside.

Patrick "Pack" Yan

Voiced by: Mutsumi Tamura

A teenage boy that Gus recruits from what appears to be a military prison. On his first appearance, he breaks out of chair restraints and butchers a room full of guards for no real reason.

Alfried Maccaran

Voiced by: Junji Majima

A genius hacker who loves to cause total mayhem in pursuit of his goals. He becomes obsessed with Felia and takes it to max levels of creepiness.

  • Close-Call Haircut: Suffers one in episode 3.
  • The Cracker: If he gets in front of a computer, he can break into any system.
  • Easily Forgiven: He doesn't even face criminal charges for what he did in episode 3.
  • Entitled to Have You: Towards Felia, in the most disturbing and horrific way possible.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: He wears glasses and doesn't care who he hurts as long as he gets what he wants. In fact, he will go out of his way to hurt as many people as he can. He even has a criminal record for it.
  • Gratuitous French
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Quite literally. The cable he cut in episode 3 smashed into his little hideout and gave him a Close Call Hair Cut.
  • Love at First Sight: He became obsessed with Felia the moment she bumped into him at a crowded festival, and accidentally spilled her cake on his suit, despite trying to prevent the accident by using her powers.
  • Minor Injury Overreaction: Treats his Close Call Hair Cut like a permanent, disfiguring injury.
  • Never My Fault: Blames Sogo for the cable that smashed into his hideout, despite being the one that cut it with a remote controlled mecha.
  • Spider Tank: He gets one after being recruited by Gus.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Very much so towards Felia. The fact that he can hack into any surveillance system, making him nigh-omniscient, is a terrifying prospect. Especially considering the fact that the face he loves seeing most on his "mademoiselle" is one of explicit terror.
  • Terms of Endangerment: He calls Felia his "mademoiselle".
  • Too Dumb to Live: Lowers the barricade of his hideout so he could have full view of the cable car he was going to have fall, up close and personal. He could easily have been killed by the whiplash of the cable he cut.
  • Villainous Crush: Has one on Felia, and is very creepy about it.
  • Would Hurt a Child: In addition to the antics of episode 3, he throws a bowl full of soup at Felia because she asked about Sogo in episode 5.
  • Yandere: Not only is he obsessed with seeing Felia's face, he insists they will be "together forever." He even went so far as to try to kill her in episode 3 by cutting the cable holding her car aloft.

Councillor Krone

One of the five Imperial "wise sages." He first appears in the story looking through a telescope while talking about "Lucifer."

  • Evil Is Hammy: He goes into a large ham rant near the end of episode 10. Complete with evil laughter.
  • Evil Old Folks:
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: How he meets his end in Episode 11.
  • Individuality Is Illegal: Is firmly of the opinion that all the traits that make people people are a hindrance to Utopia. Especially when Felia expresses them.
  • Omniscient Council of Vagueness: He was part of one at the start of the story.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: His actions in capturing and "purifying" Felia directly lead to putting the entire planet of Gift and its population in mortal danger, and his final orders to the military actually has them fighting the very people trying to save the world.
  • Unwitting Pawn: He could well be this, as episode 9 implies he's taking the "advice" of a murderous shapeshifter. Episode 11 confirms it.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: Ironically, the planet Gift is already at a "golden age." He just wants to make it "better."
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He just wants to bring even more prosperity to Gift and the empire. Or so he claims. To do it, he has murdered his colleague and trusted researcher Ena, all his fellow councilors, and ordered the army to mobilize against a handful of teenagers to kidnap a small child. Repeatedly traumatizing her in the process.
  • What Measure Is A Nonhuman: Spends almost the entirety of his appearance in episode 11 derisively calling Felia "a stone."

Black Moura: "Lilian Anatolia"

Voiced by: Tomo Muranaka

Posing as Krone's secretary, this entity has been manipulating events since before the beginning of the series.

  • Battle Aura: She shows one before transforming in episode 11, and it's all black.
  • Beam Spam: Just like Moura.
  • Blade on a Stick: Wields a spear.
  • Curbstomp Battle: Gave one to Sogo and Moura.
  • Dark Is Evil: She's all black in mecha form while Moura's white.
  • Diabolus ex Machina: In episode 10, appeared out of nowhere and grabbed Felia at the Altar of the Abyss.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Moura.
  • Good Colors, Evil Colors: Her beams are a different color than Moura's.
  • Humans Are Insects: Was truly confounded as to why Felia cared for Sogo. Takes it up a notch in episode 11, showing nothing but disgust and disdain, if not outright hatred, for the people of Gift, not for anything they've done, but simply because they're there.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Her preferred method of killing people.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: After everything Krone's done in the story, he can't complain about what she did to him.
  • Lady Macbeth: All the nasty things Krone has done have been at her urging, or with her complete support.
  • Shapeshifter Baggage: Same as Moura.
  • Shock and Awe: In addition to beam spams, the spear can carry a powerful electric charge.
  • Shout-Out: Having the ability to shapeshift into other people as well as transform her arms into blades may be a reference to the T-1000 from the Terminator franchise.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: Just like Councilor Krone, she claims she's doing what she's doing "to make the world better." Unfortunately, the "world" she's talking about is not Gift.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Quite literally. The death of her angel killed her planet, Earth, and after centuries of solitude, watching no less than three civilizations rise and fall on Gift, she went mad with envy, deciding the only way to create Utopia is to slam the two planets together.

Other Characters

Hajime Do Mon

Voiced by: Kenta Miyake

The owner of the cafe where Sogo lives. A mild-mannered old man who loves to make coffee.

  • Good Is Not Nice: He's quite unflappable most of the time, but threaten Sogo, and he can get downright murderous.
  • Friendly Sniper: He used to be a sniper in the armed forces, and he's very affable.
  • Idiot Ball: He seems to juggle it throughout the series. On the one hand, he's smart enough to spot a mole, and he knows who trashed his establishment in episode 4. On the other, he's done some really stupid things like leave a child with the mental capacity of a five year old completely unattended in a large house/cafe with no way to call for help if anything went wrong while a typhoon was bearing down on them. Even if people weren't after Felia, there's a lot that could have happened to her.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: His actions in episodes 8 and 9 are all about this. His attempts to get the Imperial army to stop going after Sogo (Felia be damned) only served to make everything worse.
  • Retired Badass: He's retired from the Imperial military, but he can still make Gus look bad without even trying, and that's after supposedly being out of practice for years.
  • Sacrificial Lion: Word of his death in episode 10 gives Gus a much-needed Heel Realization.
  • Supreme Chef: According to Sogo, after years of practice, Do Mon makes the best curry in the world, although Do Mon never managed to duplicate Ena's recipe.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: A truly infuriating one in episode 8. He sneaks into Gus's mobile HQ, steals Gus's security card, and then utterly humiliates Gus by showing how easy it would have been to kill him before telling Gus exactly what he was going to do.

Malvina Aniance

Voiced by: Suzuko Mimori

A cute shopkeeper that lives near Sogo and Do Mon. She's been friends with them for years.
