Alaskan Base Officer
- Insane Admiral: A commanding officer who revels in seeing his enemies not only defeated but crushed and humiliated.
- No Name Given: It's rather impressive that somebody who's name isn't even known can be such a psycho.
- Psycho Supporter: Despite his rank, the commander is still working in service of his country's Elite.
- Sociopathic Soldier: Well, let's see: he refuses to accept the 37th's surrender of the territory and bombards their base as they evacuate, his troops try to gang-rape Milinda, and after he captures our heroes he describes how he's going to kill them all very painfully.
- Sore Loser: He takes the destruction of the Prometheus (a.k.a. Water Strider) poorly, not only refusing to surrender, but also attempts to shoot Havia, Milinda, and Qwenthur when they try to escape.
- Starter Villain: The first major enemy our protagonists face, and one of the nastiest.
- Dark-Skinned Blonde
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: She and the rest of the Athletica want to restore the Olympics to their original state. Given that the Technopics are little more than a political and economic dog-and-pony show where athletes are in constant danger of assassination and destroying their bodies with doping and cheating devices, this is a noble goal. The problem is they want to start by arranging the massacre of millions of civilians and don't care that's likely to trigger a global war.
- At Least I Admit It: Skuld pities her sisters because she believes they are just as insane as her but have deluded themselves into being "proper monsters".
- Ax-Crazy: Skuld views killing as a hobby and wants to do it in a manner that most lets her savor the feeling of her victims dying.Skuld: [while strangling Qwenthur] I will indulge in my hobby. I will bathe in blood and death. No life could be more fulfilling!
- Cruel Mercy: Rather than killing or imprisoning her, Skuld is drugged so heavily she's borderline comatose. While in this state, the Faith Organization's scientists can perform exploratory surgery on her body.
- Cute and Psycho: She seems like a relatively innocent and cooperative Elite. In fact she is a completely amoral and utterly insane serial killer who preys on not only her enemy and civilians but also her own comrades.
- Defeat Means Respect: Following her loss to Qwenthur, she became obsessed with him and began to think of him as her "teacher".
- Evil Feels Good: Skuld is absolutely ecstatic when contemplating killing, to the point that it seems she's on drugs. The fact that Skuld sees the world in psychedelic colors while getting ready to kill only supports this parallel.
- Evil Is Petty: When her sisters captured Qwenthur for interrogation, Skuld was pissed that they took away her "meal". During the following battle she eagerly takes the chance to seize and destroy the Trinity Style as revenge.
- The Fool: A dark version of this trope. She never plans and has no long-term goals aside from killing, but always manages to find a way out of any situation.
- Girlish Pigtails: Usually wears her long blonde hair in twin tails. She avoids capture by Faith soldiers in part by changing her hairstyle.
- Has a Type: She greatly prefers killing androgynous guys, which is why she fixated on Qwenthur.
- Indy Ploy: Doesn't plan anything in advance, she merely takes any opportunity she sees to kill. Her skill at doing so leads to others mistakenly thinking she has some grand plan.
- Mad Bomber: After her defeat by Qwenthur, Skuld tries to imitate him and discovers she loves using bombs.
- Maniac Tongue: Pictured with her tongue hanging out when she steals the Trinity Style and later licking her lips when she's getting ready to kill Qwenthur with a speargun.
- Serial Killer: A prolific one with a worrying habit of inspiring copycats. She has a preference in targets, namely androgynous guys, and prefers to strangle them when possible.
- Slasher Smile: Dons one of these once her true character is exposed.
- Sociopathic Soldier: As an Elite she has no qualms about gunning down enemy soldiers, her soldiers, aid workers, or even flat-out civilians. The only reason she dislikes being an Elite is that it doesn't feel as good as using her own hands.
- Team Killer: While serving as an Elite Skuld would often target one of the maintenance workers and kill him without the rest of the unit noticing. In Volume 15 she went so far as to slaughter a large portion of the unit she was attached to and destroyed their Object.
- Trading Bars for Stripes: At the end of Volume 14 the Faith Organization approves the release of Skuld Silent-Third to pilot an Object for the coming conflict. This is despite them fully understanding she is an insane serial killer.
- Trick Bomb: Using a metal case to shape and direct the blast, Skuld turned a plastic explosive into a handheld plasma torch.
- Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: While in elementary school, she apparently tortured the school's pet rabbits, attacked two other people, and burned down four houses belonging to other students or teachers. She's also noticed to behave in a manner that is far more sexual than expected of her age.
- Villains Never Lie: Everything she says during interrogation is true to some extent, especially the fact that her sisters will kill her. What she's leaving out is that they will kill Skuld to make sure she doesn't go on a killing spree in a safe country.
- Villain with Good Publicity: Between Skuld killing anyone who gets too close to the truth and the Faith Organization covering up any signs of her hobby and true personality, Skuld is believed to be a benevolent, holy figure by her nation.
Maria & Rachel
- Ambiguously Brown: Though her ethnicity is not mentioned, the illustrations show she's very dark skinned.
- Badass Biker: She can do rather impressive things with a motor cycle. She even managed a photo-finish race with the Legitimacy kingdom's top Intel operative who is Famed In-Story at being a complete expert.
- Disability Superpower: She is scared of being looked at. She can even sense which cameras are active or disabled.
- The Gunslinger: She's an expert in firearms, specifically pistols.
- My Country, Right or Wrong: At first, then she saw the antics of "Fly Away" and was utterly disgusted. She then helped Frolaytia's group fight a second Faith Organization Object that was affiliated with the Lost Angels arc Big Bad.
- Nice Hat: Wears a truly fetching beret.
- The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: So much so, that she actually saves Qwenthur's life, so she can kill him herself later, or so she claims.
- Revenge: Her primary motive in dealing with Qwenthur. She wants to kill him because he's the one who came up with the plan to steal her Object, with her inside!
- Sempai/Kohai: To Qwenthur, after being paired together by the Legitimacy Kingdom's Intelligence Division.
- She's Got Legs: And the illustrators are not shy about pointing it out.
- Tsundere: Lampshaded. Qwenthur openly calls her one after she saved his life.
- Villainous Rescue: This is how she sees being rescued by the Legitimacy Kingdom's Intelligence Division.
- You Have Failed Me: From her own country. Because her own army failed to properly secure her and her Object, she was nearly executed.
The Elite of the First Generation Object Cronus.
- The Ace: Perhaps the most experienced and skilled Elite seen to date, capable of easily outfighting any other Elite in spite of his outdated model.
- Blood Knight: Robert is constantly seeking a good fight against other Elites, even switching sides mid-conflict to get one.
- Death Seeker: His greatest desire is to die at the hands of a genius Elite whose potential is greater than his own. He links this to his Object's name in that Cronus only gained value in his legend in being defeated by Zeus.
- Military Maverick: Qwenthur suspects his superiors just let him do what he pleases and count the victories afterwards.
