"Oh-Ho-Ho"

Voiced by: Hisako Kanemoto (Japanese); Monica Rial (English)

The Information Alliance Elite that the main characters (especially Qwenthur) most often communicate with in the series. Pilots the second-generation Object "Rush".

  • The Ace: An exceptionally skilled and intelligent Elite despite her young age. While in control of the Manhattan for the first time, she was able to pull out more than 100% of its expected performance ability and that was while she was still getting used to the systems.
  • Action Girl: She's an Elite Object pilot, so this goes without saying. In an unusual variation, though, Rush is actually piloted by an Artificial Intelligence, so instead of driving and firing weapons like Milinda, her job is to resolve programming faults that turn up during sorties.
  • Armor-Piercing Slap: Delivers this to her superior officer, Lendy Farolito, after the Alaska fiasco. It's well justified.

  • Berserk Button: Learning that Qwenthur was (apparently) dead drove her into a frenzy. Skuld was more than happy to pound on the button when needed.
  • Big Breast Pride: She loves to provoke Milinda with her avatar's very buxom physique. It's all a lie, she's actually a pre-teen.
  • Elites Are More Glamorous: Played completely straight.
  • Expecting Someone Taller: Qwenthur's reaction to her when he boards her Object and discovers her screen persona was aged up from her real self by at least eight years.
  • Fille Fatale: She's very sexually aggressive to Qwenthur, despite being a child even younger than Milinda.
  • Idol Singer: In addition to being an Object pilot, she is this. She even has Qwenthur watch, at gunpoint. Milinda is not amused.
  • Noble Womans Laugh: It's her trademark. As such, that's the "name" Qwenthur and Havia give her.
  • Advertisement:
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Her real name is never mentioned.
  • The Rival: To Milinda, and the feeling's mutual.
  • Playful Hacker: Of a sort: Rush is actually fought by an AI, with Oh-Ho-Ho riding along to fix programming faults to keep the Object in the fight.
  • Somebody Set Up Us the Bomb: Invoked and averted. Qwenthur convinces her that the Information Alliance planted an explosive "kill switch" in her cockpit to keep her from turning on them. He even points out the bomb (that he planted) directly beneath her chair. What makes this truly believable is that she was managing an experimental AI at the time. She is understandably not amused when she returns to base, and speaks with her superiors.
  • Trash Talk: Engages in it with Milinda, almost constantly.
  • Virtual Celebrity: Her very buxom persona is just virtual avatar. She's actually a pre-teen.
  • You Owe Me: At the beginning of Episode 23, she reminds Qwenthur of the little "prank" he played in Alaska, and then says this nearly word for word at the end of Episode 24.

  • Only One Name: That's all we have to call her, but even so, we don't know for sure if it's real.

Alisa Martini Sweet

Rica Martini Medium

Orsia Martini Dry

Wraith Martini Vermouthspray

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wraith_martini.jpg
A member of the Martini genius girl series who deals with illegal and potentially damaging actions of her nation.
  • Character Tics: Has a habit of playing with a pen. She dislikes it as the habit was ingrained into her and every other member of the Martini series.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Wears a black uniform and isn't above manipulating soldiers on either side to get her job done. Despite this she's a moral person and will go beyond what's immediately required when dealing with military crimes.
  • Nice Hat: Wears an oversized military cap, turned slightly to the side.
  • The Political Officer: She is a "troubleshooter" who specializes in hunting down criminals within the Information Alliance forces and cleaning up their messes.
  • Red Baron: In the Alliance, Wraith's known as the Stopgap Grim Reaper. She's not entirely sure whether she should be offended.
  • Trash Talk: She has a vicious tongue when talking to members of foreign militaries, such as calling Frolaytia a number of different ape species.

Katarina Martini

The scientist behind the Martini genius girl project.
  • Admiring the Abomination: Her attitude toward the Martini genius girls is a mixture of fear, regret, and admiration for the facets of her mother they represent.
  • Iron Lady: Comes across as a stoic older woman who held a position of immense power thanks to heading the genius girl project.
  • Missing Mom: Lost her mother, Cassandra, during the chaos when Objects first appeared. The Martini series was her attempt to recreate Cassandra's unique and brilliant mind.
  • Not So Stoic: Her poker face breaks when Piranirie dies, frantically trying to revive her even though she knows it's hopeless before breaking down sobbing.

Piranirie Martini Smoky

A member of the Martini genius girl series who stirs up conflict where it will be most beneficial to her nation.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: When she's dying, she's obviously afraid and lost, with her last word being "Mom".
  • Agent Provocateur: She specializes in stirring up conflict in areas where it is either dying down or non-existent.
  • Chewbacca Defense: Piranirie motivates her soldiers to fight, even when all logic says they shouldn't, with tactics that put them off-balance and distract them from the actual situation.
  • We Have Reserves: Forces her troops to use suicidal tactics in order to erode the will of her enemy and calls in Object strikes on any soldiers who resist to keep the rest motivated.

Alfred Silverking

  • Girl in a Box: Or rather an old man in a box. In order to get Alfred Silverking away from his ship, Wraith has him gagged, bound, and stuffed in a suitcase. Qwenthur quite reasonably points out that, given the heat of the locale, he's likely to die before reaching his destination.

Taratua Martini On-the-Rocks

  • It Amused Me: Taratua didn't tell the forces she sent to Olympia Dome about the Object currently stationed there because she didn't care if they liked her or not.
