Head of the 37th Mobile Maintenance Battalion's engineering and maintenance department and Qwenthur's direct superior.
- The Engineer: Her life-long career is Object maintenance.
- I Was Quite the Looker: Ayami has a photograph from her younger days. Qwenthur is stunned at how cute she used to be.
- Mean Boss: While she's quite nice to Milinda, she's absolutely brutal to her co-workers.
- A Mother to Her Men: She does care quite a bit for her subordinate's well being, and has gone to some rather ridiculous lengths to keep them alive.
- Never Mess with Granny: Ayami is an old civilian mechanic, but when a group of professional soldiers in powered armor boards the ship she improvises a flamethrower and roasts an entire unit until their suits shut down.
- Only in It for the Money: Growing up in what became a major Corporation safe country, Ayami wholeheartedly adopted the mindset of focusing on monetary gain above anything else. As a result she never quite connected with her daughter going into humanitarian aid.
- Sergeant Rock: Tough as nails, but her fellow workers and the soldiers all respect her because she's not only "been there, done that" but when the chips are down, they know she will keep them safe, or die trying.
- Wrench Wench: She is, by far, the best Object engineer in the whole series.
- Named by the Adaptation: We never learn his name in the light novels, but we do see it in the anime when he talks with Frolaytia.

- Dark Is Not Evil: Wears Black and is one of the allies.
- Internal Affairs: The Black Uniforms' role is "barrier duty", i.e. policing the Legitimacy Kingdom military. This means ensuring that the soldiers don't commit crimes and that the Fictional Geneva Conventions are upheld, though in times past it also meant preventing soldiers from retreating from the battlefield (a detail the author seems to have borrowed from the Red Army).

- Combat Pragmatist: After disabling enemy soldiers, she advocates using them as human shields.
- Jack-of-All-Trades: Has demonstrated skill with multiple weapons, military tools, and vehicles ranging from trucks to powered armor.
- Mauve Shirt: Myonri appears a few times in early novels but gets little characterization. Starting with Volume 12 she became much more important and has continuously appeared since then as a minor character. Ironically her status shifted came immediately after her near death.
- Only One Name: She's only known as Myonri, even after being promoted to Mauve Shirt.
- Only Sane Man: Often feels very put upon due to being surrounded by a bunch of horny teenage boys. This isn't helped by the fact that Qwenthur and Havia adding idiocy to that mix.

- Hoist by His Own Petard: The dummy objects contained large amounts of the gas used in low-stability plasma cannons. When they were destroyed, Prizewell's Object was surrounded by a massive cloud of that gas which ignited when he fired his main cannon. The resulting explosion ruined his armor, earning Milinda a clear shot at finishing him off.
- Never My Fault: He views Qwenthur as the one responsible for destroying his dummy Objects, despite the fact that it was an oversight on his part.
- Not-So-Well-Intentioned Extremist: He claims to be preserving the Legitimacy Kingdom's official language, but he's really nothing more than a xenophobic hypocrite who sees nothing wrong with his own men dying.
- Politically Incorrect Villain: Bordering on Absolute Xenophobe. He wanted to rid the Legitimacy Kingdom of its foreign languages, attempted to wipe out a mine of miners defecting to the Kingdom, and tried to destroy the immigrant city on Victoria Island. He's also implied to have been behind several terrorist attacks involving the assassination of foreign language band members and foreign language school bombings, however, there was no evidence to him being involved.
- Slavery Is a Special Kind of Evil: He sought to reinstate slavery.
- Would Hurt a Child: No child is safe from his racist desires.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Depicted this way in the anime.

Formerly a civilian idol, her career was torpedoed due to her agency committing lèse-majesté. She temporarily works alongside Qwenthur and Havia in the Background Unit.
- No Name Given: She's only ever referred to by her title.
- Powered Armor: Is never seen outside of her armor.
- Punishment Detail: After her agency's indiscretion, the idol's career was ruined. Joining the military as a battlefield reporter was her only option outside of prostitution.
- Unacceptable Targets: Without her knowledge, the idol's agency made claims she was more beautiful than Princess Stavia. This ran afoul of lèse-majesté laws and ruined everyone involved.
- World's Most Beautiful Woman: Stated to be so beautiful it's boring.
- Con Man: Openly introduces herself as a "marriage scam artist" to Qwenthur and Havia. She used false claims of having noble blood to leech money off men she met at bars.
- Fake Aristocrat: Part of her scam was to claim she was of noble descent.

Marshal of Volga's Royal Guard
A prince of the Legitimacy Kingdom's Volga District.
- Bastard Bastard: He is a cruel man and has eliminated many rival claimants for the throne of Volga despite being first in line. It is suspected this is because he was the king's bastard child and thus would have no claim to the matrimonial throne. The DNA tests show he's legitimate but the office involved is staffed by his flunkies. After his death the test proved he was indeed illegitimate.
- Evil Prince: Aside from assassinating his own siblings to secure the throne, he has also assassinated another Elite, carried out false terrorist attacks to undermine his enemies, and is implied to have unsavory hobbies.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: He specifically designed his Object's weapon system so that it could not be turned against him. The resulting flaws in the programming and safety systems meant Qwenthur was able to make it fire on him with little effort. He also ensured his opponent's useless Object had an operational weapon to increase the legitimacy, not realizing it could be remote-fired.
- He doubled down on this trope with his earlier behavior in the fight. Had Dimiksy used his first attack to kill Staivia, nobody would have had time to interfere. Instead he first disabled the Forest Roller which was too far from the battle to interfere at that point, and then he fired on his own men to prevent his Object's flaw being exposed. By the time he finally went for the kill, he had wasted fourteen minutes and given Qwenthur enough time to set up interference and alerted Unicorn to the fact there was information at the base.
- Princeling Rivalry: He has spent at least five years murdering the other claimants to the throne.
- Silent Antagonist: He is never seen or heard from in person.
- Would Hurt a Child: Aside from the other siblings he has assassinated, Dimiksy is intent on killing his fourteen year-old sister and has been aiming for her since she was nine. There's also the fact that he was responsible for the bombing that killed Excelsyla.
- An Arm and a Leg: While she survives the assassination attempt, Lisa loses an arm.
- He Knows Too Much: She gets targeted for assassination due to her work as a black op bodyguard making her witness to many unsavory actions.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Rather than getting others involved in the assassination attempt, Lisa tries to get herself killed so the battle will stop.
Château de Rouge Warden
- Wardens Are Evil: He heads a prison full of nothing but innocents who somehow got on a noble's bad side. He not only finds this entirely natural but takes inordinate pleasure in manipulating them to serve his personal interests. In particular he notes that Mariage obeyed him so unquestioningly because she was a virgin and knew it was the only way to stay one.
- Bare Your Midriff: As seen in the picture.
A young girl trained to be the Elite of Councillor Flide's personal Object, the Exact Javelin.
- Action Girl: Thanks to her brutal combat training and modifications as an Elite, Catherine is more than capable of taking down entire squads of soldiers without any trouble.
- Big Brother Mentor: After he helped save her from Flider, Catherine was in awe of Qwenthur's ability to fight without a gun. She thinks that if she can learn to give up guns like her "big brother" she might be able to find a life outside of being an Elite.
- Child Soldier: Only twelve years old but still more than a match for many veteran soldiers.
- I Will Fight No More Forever: Having spent years undergoing painful training and modifications as an Elite, Catherine wants to become a civilian and live a normal life.
- Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: The ease with which Catherine kills people and her utter lack of concern afterwards is understandable but worrying.
