Humans

    Raika Shinzen 
The main character, who wants to take revenge on the gods for destroying his home and kidnapping his sister. He becomes the Divine Apotheosis of Balor, but keeps his free will at the cost of only having a limited portion of Balor's powers.
  • Bad Boss: He's not that considerate to Brunhild's suffering and frequently insults her, though he'll at least protect her if it means protecting Charlotte.
  • Berserk Button: The gods in general anger him, especially when they abuse their Divine Apotheosis' or look down on humans.
  • Big Brother Instinct: He holds out hope that he can rescue his sister from her kidnapper and he makes sure to interrogate Brunhild and Freyja to learn if they or someone in their pantheon is the culprit. At the end of Volume 1, Raika finds himself unable to harm Zeus because the latter is possessing his sister, Tenka.
  • Church Militant: He was taught combat by the Holy Church, but he has his own reasons for taking on their mission to investigate Laurasia.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Averted. Defeating and taking control of a god just results in an Enemy Mine at best.
  • Enemy Mine: He only protects the gods under his control in the hopes that he can restore their Divine Apotheosis to normal and because he doesn't have the power to fight gods by himself.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Zeus inflicted this on him to make him forget his sister's name, as well as who kidnapped her.
  • Oblivious to Love: For all his intelligence, he seems to have a hard time picking up on Charlotte's crush on him and understanding her flustered reaction to staying over in his room for the sake of their alliance.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • He's normally cold to Brunhild, but at the end of Volume 1, he suggests he, Charlotte, and Shishigane go to the crepe shop because the Valkyrie wants to eat there.
    • He invites Leon to a pool party with his friends despite knowing the latter will forget, and wants to remember the event for Leon's state.
  • Sharing a Body: He's mainly the one in control of his body, but Balor can hijack his eye sometimes.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: He's nice to his human friends, but has nothing but contempt for all gods due to the previous Ragnarok and due to his sister's kidnapping. This is especially evident in his interactions with Brunhild, as shown in his Pet the Dog entry.
  • Taking You with Me: He was willing to let Balor fully possess him in order to kill Zeus, which could potentially result in his Death of Personality. Fortunately, Zeus decided to strike a deal with him instead.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Raika admits that Balor is one of the worst kinds of gods, but works with him in order to win the war.
  • Tsundere: Balor insists Raika secretly cares about Brunhild despite his harsh treatment towards her, but the latter claims he's only trying to protect Charlotte by proxy.
  • Willfully Weak: Unlike the other Divine Apotheosis, he's not fully possessed by a god and he intends to stay that way. This means he can only use a limited portion of Balor's powers three times a day. He also doesn't gain the physical enhancements that other Divine Apotheosis have.

    Charlotte Labpeyn 
Raika's upperclassman in Laurasia. She gets possessed by Brunhild, but has her personality restored due to Raika's evil eye.
  • And I Must Scream: Most of the time, she's conscious while Brunhild is in control. She would have been stuck in this situation if it weren't for Raika.
  • Cute Bookworm: She's a member of the library committee and has a clumsy and shy personality.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Out of nervous impulse, she asks Raika to go with her to a random boutique and once inside, she tells the clerk that she's shopping for underwear. Charlotte then realizes what a bad idea that was.
  • Sharing a Body: After Raika commands Brunhild to restore Charlotte's personality, the two personalities can communicate with each other and Charlotte is in control by default. If danger arises, Brunhild will take control to protect Charlotte. Unfortunately, sharing a body means Brunhild will feel aroused when Charlotte does.
  • Shrinking Violet: She's very shy around men and faints when she realizes that her bringing Raika to shop for lingerie makes it look like they're dating.
  • Unfortunate Names: Her last name sounds like "love pain" and some translations use "Lovepain."
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Averted. She has white hair and is one of the nicest characters in the series.

    Maria Mint 
Like Raika, Maria is an agent from the Holy Church, who assists him in his attempt to win Ragnarok.
  • And Then John Was a Zombie: The cover of Volume 7 shows that she's the Divine Apotheosis of Kushiel, one of the seven angels of punishment.
  • Church Militant: Dialogue from Volume 1 Chapter 2 states that she's also capable of killing threats to the church, though she mainly uses her abilities to bless Raika's guns.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She doesn't like it when Shishigane flirts with Raika or when Charlotte forms an alliance with him.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Despite telling Shishigane to act more reserved around Raika, she has no issue hugging him from behind.

    Shishigane Ruirui 

  • Death of Personality: Due to being a proper Divine Apotheosis of Freyja, she can't be restored to her original personality, though Raika hopes there will eventually be a way to save her.
  • Grand Theft Me: She's the Divine Apotheosis of Freyja.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: In the very first volume she goes through Death of Personality. It's unknown if she was already possessed when she first appeared.

    Tenka 

  • Cynicism Catalyst: Her kidnapping is part of the reason why Raika became a cynical avenger. The other part is the destruction of their family and home.
  • Expressive Accessory: Her bunny hairpin always has a similar facial expression to her current one.
  • Genki Girl: She's an energetic member of the class committee. It's unknown if this is how she would act without Zeus controlling her.
  • Only One Name: Unlike most of the characters listed in the official site's character page, she has no last name. Her last name is revealed to be Shinzen.
  • Shorter Means Smarter: She's very short, but she can speak seven languages.
  • Walking Spoiler: As Raika's little sister possessed by Zeus, her reveal is a huge bombshell for him.

    Kunisaki Kojiro

    Leon Bladebright 

  • Assimilation Backfire: Leon suffers from anterograde amnesia, which causes the god possessing him to suffer from it too. The identity of the god is considered new information, which means both Leon and the god have forgotten that possession even took place.
  • Enlightened Self-Interest: He always goes out of his way to help others, but he states that doing good for others will make them more likely to help him in turn. This is a concept his late father imparted to him to help him survive.
  • For Great Justice: Since he doesn't remember the nature of his powers, he believes he's a hero of justice who can solve the mysterious murders taking place on the island.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: After Raika's team attacks him and Susanoo, he cooperates with Raika to defeat Osiris, but a later illustration shows him as an enemy.

Gods

    Balor 
A Celtic god who has the power of the evil eye.
  • Achilles' Heel: Despite the seemingly game-breaking powers of his evil eye, it doesn't work well against deities with means to resist "evil" abilities.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He admits that he's an evil god and he makes no effort to hide his unruly personality. When Raika considers letting Balor fully possess him to defeat Zeus, the evil god himself notes that this is a bad idea.
  • Dirty Old Man: Raika has to close his eye just to keep him from oogling girls.
  • Geas: His evil eye allows him to force commands onto gods that he controls, though those gods can find loopholes.
  • It Amused Me: He goes along with being Raika's sidekick because he finds the latter's tactics amusing.
  • Jerkass God: He's a rude pervert and the only reason Raika puts up with him is to use his powers.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: When Raika is against going to the indoor pool with his classmates, Balor points out that the team needs to rest properly due to their injuries and fatigue from the battles with Susanoo and Osiris. After Raika relents, Balor admits what he really wants is to see the girls in their swimsuits.
  • Kick the Dog: He forces Brunhild to strip as a demonstration of his powers as opposed to a less humiliating order.
  • Laughably Evil: While his perverted comments and banter with Raika makes him humorous, it's also clear that nothing good would come of him taking full control of his Divine Apotheosis.
  • Magical Eye: His eye gives him the ability to control other gods, inflict instant death on enemies within his sight, and petrify objects within his sight.

    Brunhild 
A Valkyrie from Norse mythology.
  • A-Cup Angst: She's jealous that her host is more stacked than her.
  • BFS: She wields Nothung as her weapon of choice, which is almost as big as Charlotte.
  • Butt-Monkey: She is forced to strip by Balor, is groped by her host's friends, gets a stomachache from eating a huge parfait, and is a sacrificial pawn to her boss.
  • Dumb Is Good: Downplayed on the good part, but she's one of the few gods with a sense of honor. She also has a bad case of Leeroy Jenkins and probably would have died in the first night if she didn't fight Raika first.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Combined with Honor Before Reason. Unlike other deities, she doesn't believe in using sneak attacks or brainwashed minions and she would rather fight her opponents one-on-one.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: At the end of chapter 4, she sides with Raika against Freyja both because of the Geas and because her boss tried to kill her.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: While she has superhuman strength, her magic abilities pale in comparison to other gods. This is a hint that she's not actually the candidate for her mythology.
  • Reality Ensues: She eats an entire parfait by herself, only to get a stomachache when she and Raika are attacked.
  • Starter Villain: She's the first deity to be enslaved by Raika's evil eye, which only works because she's the lowest ranked.
  • Unwitting Pawn: She's not actually the candidate for Norse mythology. Instead, she's an Elite Mook summoned by Freyja, who used her a decoy to draw out the candidates of other mythologies.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Her swordplay is on par with Susanoo, but is unable to match him in strength and speed due to her lower rank.

    Freyja 
A high-ranking goddess from Norse mythology.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Raika is not amused by her attempts to flirt with him and seduce him.
  • Bad Boss: Moreso than Raika. She treats Brunhild as a tool and attempts to dispose of her.
  • Double Standard: Rape, Female on Male: Averted. Her Attempted Rape on Raika via her unwilling Divine Apotheosis's body is played for horror.
  • Faux Affably Evil: She constantly flirts with Raika and briefly tries to act understanding to Brunhild's problems, but she's not a benevolent goddess at all.
  • Harem Seeker: She wants a harem full of strong men and wants to add Raika to that list.
  • Graceful Loser: Surprisingly, she takes losing to Raika and falling under his control rather well. It helps that she has a Villainous Crush on him.
  • Grand Theft Me: Her Divine Apotheosis is Shishigane Ruirui.
  • Interplay of Sex and Violence: In the manga, she blushes when Raika survives her Flechette Storm.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: She's a Bad Boss to Brunhild, but by the end of Volume 1, she gets her own Bad Boss in Raika.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: She hastily made Charlotte into an incomplete Divine Apotheosis, which allowed Raika to recover her original personality. If Charlotte was possessed by a different god through normal means, she would have gone through Death of Personality like everyone else.
  • Out-Gambitted: She uses Brunhild as a hostage to force Raika to waste a use of his evil eye and uses her Regalia, Folkvangr, to place Raika into a situation where his evil eye can't see every enemy. He gets around this by using an illusion to make her think he used his eye of death twice, and then uses eye of death when he's at the highest point of Folkvangr to wipe out her Einherjar at once.
  • Psychopomp: Her Regalia allows her to summon an army of warriors from Folkvangr. She also gets first priority on picking dead warriors over Odin, meaning her army is made of better warriors than his.
  • Villain Ball: She exposes her Regalia to Raika out of Suicidal Overconfidence, despite how her previous attacks were already wearing him down.
  • Yandere: She takes her Villainous Crush on Raika too far by trying to make him an Einherjar, which means killing him in battle.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: She attacks her loyal servant, Brunhild, in order to force Raika to use his evil eye.

    Zeus 
The top god of Greek Mythology and the overseer of the current Ragnarok.
  • An Offer You Can't Refuse: He offers to return Tenka to Raika in exchange for the latter helping Greek Mythology win. Raika points out that the only way for them to win is to kill all other Divine Apotheosis, including himself, though Zeus promises to revive him. Unsurprisingly, Raika immediately notes that this deal probably can't be trusted, though he has to go along with the deal because Zeus had an excuse to off Raika for breaking the rules.
  • Arch-Enemy: He serves as this to Raika due to possessing his sister.
  • Big Bad: As the current overseer, he's the most powerful antagonist in terms of authority.
  • Dirty Old Man: As Tenka, he gropes Brunhild in the lingerie shop.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He has nothing but compliments for Raika's victory against Freyja and generally acts like an energetic classmate, but he's also using the latter's sister to taunt him.
  • Laughably Evil: Despite being the god responsible for Raika's Dark and Troubled Past, he has some goofy moments in his student guise, such as expressing A-Cup Angst when Ruirui calls his host a "chopping board" or using his powers to earn high marks during physical education classes.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: He can transform into both animate and inanimate things, which means he can No-Sell Balor's petrification.
  • Walking Spoiler: He counts as this due to possessing Tenka Shinzen.

    Apollo 
The current representative for Greek Mythology and a sun god.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Who would have guessed his Divine Apotheosis is Kunisaki of all people?
  • The Dragon: He's playing along with Zeus's "alliance" with Raika in order to gain an advantage in Ragnarok.
  • The Straight and Arrow Path: He plans on taking advantage of his archery skills to assist Raika without giving his identity away.
  • Villainous Crush: Combined with Villainous Rescue. He has a crush on Maria, which is shown when he kills Ammit to save her when it would have been more beneficial for him to snipe Osiris. Unfortunately for him, this clues Raika in on his host's identity because Kunisaki earlier admitted to liking Maria.

    Susanoo 
The Shinto god possessing Himeko Kushinada
  • Blood Knight: Susanoo has no personal stake in the goals of the war and instead only seeks to fight strong opponents.
  • No-Sell: His sword, Ame no Habakiri, allows him to resist "evil" abilities, which unfortunately includes Balor's Evil Eye.
  • One-Man Army: His Regalia, Ame no Murakumo, effortlessly wipes out Freyja's Einherjar army.

    Osiris 
The Egyption god possessing Emily
  • The Beastmaster: He can control mythological beasts such as Ammit.
  • Resurrective Immortality: Every time he dies, he can revive in a certain location. Worse yet, he has the ability to commit suicide without any magic incantation, meaning he can escape from petrification.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: While Freyja was defeated in the very first volume, Osiris puts up a much better fight against multiple Divine Apotheoses and survives the second volume without falling under a Geas.
