The F.E.A.H.

  • Dark Is Not Evil: most students at the F.E.A.H. tend to have a rather monster like appearances. Most of them are rather nice people though.

     The Main Trio 

  • Adorkable: All of them with some degree. Mostly Li Xing Mao has cute and awkward moments with Ombre de Loup in main series and spin-off.
  • Cool Loser: No the strongest and the smartest team but they have big heart and defend their friends.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: From the lowest students to the greatest hero team.

Li Xiong Mao

A studious Chinese student who entered the F.E.A.H. with the modest goal of becoming a capable Crafter Hero. As she has no special abilities, she struggled to find a "practical work" team accepting her, and ended up with Chance and Ombre de Loup. Of course, there is far more to her than meets the eye. A spinoff series is about her youth, and an other is about her mother.

Chance d'Estaing

A cute and cheerful demon like girl. She is one of the weakest students admitted to the F.E.A.H., her only apparent power being her ability to fly thanks to a pair of bat like wings that she can grow at will. She is the first person to befriend Xiong Mao.

Ombre de Loup

A wolfman who entered the F.E.A.H. for reasons of his own, he is at first too shy to find teammates and happily joins the two girls. In spite of his strength and savage look, he is a big softy.
  • Ambadassador
  • Bruiser with a Soft Center
  • Clark Kenting: With a hat, no one save for animals notice his nature. Hilarity ensues when at a funeral he lowers his hat to salute a solder friend and every single wife of his comrades run away screaming.
  • Canis Major: Large wolf. Very large wolf.
  • Gentle Giant: Can smash skulls as easily as he can stitch dolls.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Easily the strongest AND fastest member of the team, and probably of the whole promotion. He often just carries his teammates when they need to move fast.
  • Manly Men Can Hunt: Is able to sustain Xiong Mao and himself during two years just with his hunting abilities.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity
  • Our Were Wolves Are Different: Of the anthropomorphic wolf category. He is in fact a Therian: a former human who has freed his animal spirit. It is revealed that he can switch back to his human form at will but feels diminished and not really himself when he does.
  • Real Men Cook: Quickly becomes the team's chef.
  • Socially Awkward Hero: In spite of him being one of the strongest and most experienced student of the F.E.A.H, he is so shy that he is unable to find teammates before his encounter with Xiong Mao and Chance.
  • Stealthy Colossus: can be surprisingly stealthy for such a big guy.
  • The Big Guy
  • The Klutz: His big hands don't help.

     Other Students 

Lynette

The Third Year Student/ Cernunnos

A very laid back third year student hired in a bar by the Main trio as they badly needed some help at the beginning of Episode 5. His actual helpfulness soon becomes dubious though...

  • Embarrassing Parent: to Chance.
  • Faunes And Satyrs: His real appearance.

  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Lampshaded: "Chance did you guess? I am your father, baby!"
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Probably. He is after all an immortal being of vast powers. But it is never really clear what his true intents are. For the most part he seems content just goofing around the rest of the cast.
  • No Name Given: Seems to be cut by something before he can finish whenever he tries to present himself. The rest of the team just calls him "this guy" until his real identity is revealed.
  • Satan: Subverted: one of his many names and called like that by Ange. He is more similar to the pagan trickster god than to the Devil though.
  • Surfer Dude: Dresses like one, complete with flip-flop, shorts, Hawaiian shirt and overly laid-back attitude.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: While he never does anything that justifies it, there is something in his sleazy attitude that makes everybody, including someone as gentle as Ombre, want to punch him very hard in the face. For some reason he is still around. It does not change much once his real identity is revealed.
  • The Load: When there is one thing not to do, he will do it.
  • The Trickster: No less than the in-universe living embodiment of the trope.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: As traditional for the Trickster.

The Director Scipio

The Director of the F.E.A.H.His motives are rather mysterious, but he seems to have a plan...

  • Badass Normal: Is a strong fighter able to fend off hordes of Lycantes armed with no more than a fire extinguisher, yet he is one of the few characters that has no superpower.
  • Black Mail Is Such An Ugly Word: As Changelin discovers he is not above blackmailing his own students to do his bidding.
  • Combat Pragmatist: When needed he makes a very efficient use of any improvised weapon he can find.
