    Eiden L. Schützer 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eiden.jpg
Eiden is an artist that is suffering from an artist block after the Sky Golem attack on Buribcus. His chance encounter with Dakini is what causes him to travel with her and eventually inspires him to try to draw her.

  • Adorkable: Eiden is somewhat clumsy, as he has a habit of not paying attention to his surroundings, with one instance causing his glasses to get broken. He's also prone to making exaggerated expressions.
  • Beetle Maniac: Eiden is extremely fascinated by the giant beetles, keeping an encyclopedia of them handy, and even geeks out at seeing the Great Silver Jaw.
  • Blind Without 'Em: Although he shows more foresight than most characters in this trope and has a case full of spare glasses.
  • Brutal Honesty: He seems to have a habit of this, as seen in a flashback when he bluntly tells a classmate that her body had gotten rounder, which she seems to take the wrong way.
  • Funny Animal: He's an anthropomorphic dog.
  • Heroic Dog
  • Megane
  • Mr. Exposition: Whenever Dakini has a question, he's happy to explain to her, and the audience.
  • Mysterious Middle Initial: It's never stated what the "L" stands for.
  • Non-Action Guy: He's an artist, not a fighter, but he does act as emotional support for Dakini.
  • Reduced to Ratburgers: He's so poor, he apparently has had to survive off of eating bugs before.
  • Slasher Smile: Upon seeing Dakini fighting the Golems in Karacuma, he makes this expression. It also happens to be the same way Crain was smiling after shooting Molte.
    • Turns out this was his repressed hatred for the Sky Golems surfacing.
  • Starving Artist: His art is struggling, and he is rarely able to afford any food during his travels.
  • Worst Aid: Upon getting a nasty wound in Karacuma, his first action after disinfecting it is to use staples to close it.

    Dakini 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_face_of_mercy_5.png
The titular character. A mysterious fox girl with the power to destroy the golems, and has many more powers yet to be fully revealed. She is actually a Thunder Beast, and the latest to step up to fight the golems

  • Action Girl
  • Audience Surrogate: Dakini's questions serve to expound upon the world, as in the previous mangas, the audience had only seen a few towns that were focused on.
  • Badass Adorable: She's capable of reflecting Straight Thunders, something that was unthinkable before, but she is also undeniably cute.
  • Black Swords Are Better: What exactly it's made of isn't clear, but the material is strong enough to withstand Straight Thunders and can tear through a Great Silver Jaw's armor. It also looks quite pretty in sunlight.
  • Cannibalism Superpower: She can eat things to gain their aspects, such as growing wings and turning her legs into beetle mandibles after eating the Silver Jaw.
  • Cat Smile: An expression frequently made by Dakini.
  • Constantly Curious: Dakini will usually point to something she wants Eiden to explain.
  • Cool Sword: Her sword is capable of blocking shots from Sky Golems.
  • Covered in Scars
  • Cute Mute: While she isn't incapable of speech, she seems to have some trouble with it.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Fire? Mud? Rocks? Butterflies? Dakini can eat seemingly anything, but that doesn't mean she thinks it tastes good.
  • Friendship Trinket: The necklace Eiden made for her out of the Silver Jaw's spines.
  • Healing Factor: Her body can quickly regenerate from any wound, which makes her scars all the more bizarre.
  • Humanoid Abomination: She's a Thunder Beast.
  • In a Single Bound: She's only able to do this when fighting golems, as Eiden notes.
  • Laser-Guided Tyke-Bomb: She was created specifically to destroy all the golems.
  • Mind over Matter: Another of her powers. Comes with a Third Eye.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Yet another power of hers.
  • My Significance Sense Is Tingling: Dakini is able to sense where she needs to go by spontaneously growing a horn, which can be retracted back into her head.
    • She's also able to detect Golems, but there is a major flaw with this, however, as she's only able to detect combat types.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: Dakini is frequently uncovering more abilities throughout the manga. However, as they are only coming to light because the situation calls for them, it's implied that after all the failures the Thunder Beasts produced, that Dakini's mother became Crazy-Prepared.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: She can easily move Prakasha, while Eiden was struggling to even lift her.
  • Red Baron: "Flower Knight", which she gets from the way the gleam of her sword slashes look in the sun.
  • Split Personality: Has one that activates upon entering her combat mode. While in this mode, she will prioritize dodging attacks except when they're totally unavoidable, even when there are innocents or buildings in their path.
  • Super Strength: Dakini is able to easily perform feats of strength, and this is apparently something she can do regardless of if there's a golem in the area.
  • Super Toughness: She takes a direct hit from a Straight Thunder and gets right back up.
  • Swiss Army Weapon: Her sword is capable of transforming into a spear.
  • Third Eye: One opens up on her body when she uses her telekinesis.
  • Trauma Button: After taking a bite out of an Amasan Bloodmato, one look at its insides reduces Dakini to a crying, shrieking wreck, possibly because the shape reminded her of her mother.
  • Vague Age: She looks around pre-teen age, but mentally acts much younger. Eiden even brings up her lack of round shape compared to girls around that age range, so even he is unsure.

    Prakasha 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prakasha.jpg
The daughter of Kayoh and Cosith, Prakasha is researching the elusive Thunder Beasts and seems to have discovered the reason behind their appearances during Sky Golem attacks.

  • Big Eater: She folds pizzas up like crepes, and can complete a Mega Meal Challenge by herself.
  • Black Bead Eyes
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Downplayed, while she's not especially eccentric, she does have a massive appetite, and in spite of that, she's dedicated to her studies and research.
  • Heavy Sleeper: Even with all the action happening around her, she doesn't wake up until the end of her introduction chapter.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: Though she doesn't have any sort of self-image issues concerning her height and is implied to even be proud of her weight.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: She more closely resembles a fox like her mother, but has large claws like her father, a small tail, and hooves.
  • Nervous Wreck: She freezes up when the people on the bus get suspicious of her when she says she thinks she knows when and where the next Sky Golem attack is and runs away. A similar thing almost happens in Karacuma's Central Hall, but Kayoh being there gives her a boost in confidence.
  • Never Gets Fat: Despite the size and quantities of food she eats, Prakasha never seems to gain weight anywhere significant. This may be partially justified by being a half-giant Rare One.
  • Nonhuman Humanoid Hybrid: She's half-fox half-dog, and shares some of the Rare One traits of her parents.
  • Spin-Offspring: Prakasha is the daughter of Kayoh and Cosith. Have fun figuring out how that happened.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She's a few feet taller than Eiden, who's at least average height.
  • Sweet Tooth: Is stated to have a love of sweets.

    Kayoh 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kayohdakini_0.jpg
Prakasha's mother and current village chief of Rare Village. Tropes relating to her appearance in Pandemonium Wizard Village can be found here.

Karacuma

    Mayor Hoff 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mayor_hoff.png
Karacuma's mayor. Although quite young, he takes his position seriously.

  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: His eyelashes and ponytail are particularly prominent.
  • Panda-ing to the Audience: He's a red panda.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: While it's not entirely up to him, once the council is convinced of Prakasha's report, he immediately starts work on evacuating the populous.
  • Young and in Charge: He's only 28 years old and is in his fourth year in office. This isn't all that unusual for this world, as the standard is that young people bring their passion and ideals to the positions, while older folk provide their wisdom as advisers.

The Golems

    In General 
The Greater Scope Villains of all of Sho's mangas, the golems are seemingly invincible threats that have been destroying towns and cities across the world. They are opposed by much of the world, but only Dakini and the Thunder Beasts have been shown to have any sort of effect on them.

  • Arch-Enemy: Of Dakini and the Thunder Beasts' mother.
  • The Dreaded: Everyone lives in fear of the Sky Golems, since there's nothing they can do but run away.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Of Sho's mangas as a whole.
  • Invisibility: The specialty of the Shokera golems.
  • Not So Invincible After All: While remains had been seen of them in previous stories, they had never been seen taking any damage except when Jacka's horn destroyed the Mokumokuren heads in his posession. In the first chapter, we now know how those Golems were destroyed in the first place.
  • Those Were Only Their Scouts: At first, the Sky Golems are believed to be the only threat to true peace. Then it's revealed that there are many, many more types of golems, all equally impervious to conventional weapons.
  • Wave Motion Gun: The Straight Thunders.

    Karura 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/karura.png
The golem that attacked Karacuma with a massive force of other golems. He is the only known sentient golem.

  • An Arm and a Leg: Gets his arm sliced off by Dakini.
  • Black Speech: Starts off talking this way.
  • Die Laughing
  • Half the Man He Used to Be
  • The Heavy: He does most of the work for the golems during the Karacuma arc.
  • Hope Crusher: Deliberately destroys the evacuation buses so as to cause despair among the populace.
  • It Can Think: Part of what makes him so terrifying is his sentience. He can laugh, purposefully destroys the buses to keep people inside the town, and even strategically commands the golems in an attempt to overwhelm Dakini.
  • Two-Faced: The right side of his head looks like a Sky Golem head, while the other half and right lower jaw are a long beak face with sharp teeth.

    Mirror Man 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mirrorman_1.png
A puppet body controlled by the leader of the golems.

  • Arc Villain: Of the Karacuma arc.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Occurs when Dakini's sword is pulled away from his grasp with her telekinesis.
  • Big Bad: Perhaps the most clear one so far.
  • Fighting a Shadow: Given that it's not his real body, it's safe to say that the leader wasn't harmed in the end.
  • Light Is Not Good: The body takes the form of a mirrored surface.
  • Oh, Crap!: After watching Dakini destroy every single golem in the area before turning her sights on him, this is his reaction right before the mirror body is destroyed.
