Main Characters

    Hanazono Karin 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/karin_72.jpg

An ordinary 13-year-old girl living with her strict aunt after the death of her parents and beloved cat Shii-chan. After an encounter with the Kujo cousins, she discovers that the ring left behind by her mother is a holder of the power of God, and that she can use its power to transform into a goddess. She eventually moves in with Kujo Kazune and Himeka, transferring to their school.

It's later revealed that she is a de-aged Kujo Suzuka, wife of Professor Kujo Kazuto and mother of Himeka. Kazuto wiped her memories in order to protect her from Kirihiko, who was after the research regarding the power of God.

In Suzune's future timeline, Karin is a single mother, telling Suzune that Kazune left her for another woman, when in reality, Kazune died from battling.

Kamika: Athena (KK), Aphrodite (KK Chu)

Tropes associated with Karin:

  • Book Dumb: One of the things that led her to realize something was off after the ring glowed was that she suddenly could do well in school.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl
  • 11th-Hour Superpower: She is able to use Michiru's ring at the end of KK to defeat Kirihiko.
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Hair Decorations: The olive hair decoration she always wears is a present from Himeka during their first meeting. Feathers are added to it in Chu.
  • Hidden Depths: Who would think she knows karate?
  • Lethal Chef: Karin's cooking is compared to multiple blasts of her main attack. However, in Chu, she's improved to the extent that she's able to make her own meals.
  • Meaningful Name: Her last name reads "flower garden", while her first name is composed of the characters for "flower bell". When written in reverse, her first name is now read as "Suzuka".
  • Parental Abandonment
  • Ring of Power
  • Yaoi Fangirl: As revealed in Chu, she secretly keeps and draws boys' love manga.

    Kujo Kazune 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kazune.jpg

A cool and dependable boy who is Himeka's cousin. Though he is a bully to Karin, in the past, he was weak and cried frequently. He has his own school fanclub called the Kazune-Z.

He's actually an incomplete clone of the man he calls his father, Kujo Kazuto, and he has a complex about being called a "copy". Him being an incomplete clone is the reason why he's on medication and collapses every after he transforms.

In Suzune's future timeline, Kazune is said to have left Karin for another woman; but this was a lie created by Karin because she couldn't bear telling Suzune that Kazune died after numerous battles.

Kamika: Apollo (KK), Uranus (KK Chu)

Tropes associated with Kazune:

  • Academic Athlete: He is within the top 5 of the school with regards to grades, while also practicing archery and various other martial arts.
  • Bishōnen
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: He even gets drunk just by smelling alcohol.
  • Cloning Blues: He is an incomplete clone of his 'father', Kazuto.
  • Family Theme Naming: Father Kazuto and children (or clones of himself and his daughter) named Kazune and Kazusa.
  • Generation Xerox: He looks just like his dad, with the only differences being the hair and eye colors. Probably because he's a clone of his "dad"...
  • Ill Boy: He always collapses after he uses his god form. Turns out this is because he is an incomplete clone of Kazuto. When he was young, he was also subject to a lot of medication, and even bathes in medicine for faster recovery.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Meaningful Name: His name can be interpreted to mean "chord" (the musical term).
  • Parental Abandonment: He lives with his cousin, Himeka.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Kujo can be romanized as Kujyou or Kujou, the former being the most popular spelling. In Kazune's passport, his last name is spelled as Kujo.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Kazune is terrified of bugs, in contrast to his cousin Himeka, who loves them.

Supporting Characters

    Nyake 

Residing in the body of Karin's deceased pet Shii-chan, Nyake is actually the goddess of victory, Nike.

Tropes associated with Nyake:

    Nishikiori Michiru 

A transfer student from England. Due to being hospitalized, he was held back for a year and is now in the same year as Karin, Kazune, and Himeka. He also gets his own school fanclub called the Michirians.

His attachment to Kazune is revealed to be because of Kazune's resemblance to his father, Kujo Kazuto, who took care of Michiru after saving him from the traffic accident that killed both of his parents.

In Suzune's future timeline, Michiru is said to have died before Kazune. Hearing this from Kazune himself, Michiru decides to withdraw from wielding the power of God, but later returns to protect Kazuto's will.

Kamika: Poseidon (KK Chu)

Tropes associated with Michiru:

  • Affectionate Nickname: Micchi.
  • Badass Normal: In the first part of the series, he's the only "normal" member of the main cast (with Karin and Kazune having powers and Himeka hiding special information about the Kamika rings).
  • Bishōnen
  • But Not Too Foreign: It's never specified which of his parents are Japanese and English, though.
  • Meaningful Name: Michiru means "to fill with water" and is used when describing the tide rising. In Chu he gains the powers of Poseidon/Neptune. This wasn't actually a reference to a certain other "Neptune" named Michiru.
  • Mismatched Eyes: His right eye is purple, while his left eye is blue. When he was little, he was involved in an accident that killed his parents and crushed his left eye beyond repair. Kazuto made a replacement for his left eye, the same shade as Kazune and Kazuka's eyes.
  • Parental Abandonment: His parents died in an accident.
  • Personality Powers: Averted: he can channel the powers of Poseidon, but he doesn't even know how to swim.
  • Platonic Kissing: He views kissing as a greeting, which is why everyone is initially surprised at him kissing Kazune.
  • Spin-Offspring: Koge-Donbo's little-known series Doki Doki Tama Tan stars one Nishikiori Tamae who is apparently Michiru's daughter.
  • Stepford Smiler

    Kuga Jin 

An Idol Singer who transfers to Sakuragaoka Academy in Chu, claiming Karin to be the goddess he sees in his dreams. He also gets his own school fanclub called the Jin's.

It's later revealed that just like what Karin is to Suzuka, he is a de-aged Karasuma Kirihiko. Unlike Karin's case, he lost his memory and was reverted to a child after fighting in battle.

She's actually the daughter of Kujo Kazuto and Suzuka. After Kazuto's colleague Kirihiko targeted the fruits of their research regarding the power of God, Kazuto hid the research inside Himeka and split her into two: the other being Karasuma Himeka.

  • Strong Family Resemblance: The first time Himeka sees Kazusa (without knowing that Kazusa is Kazune's younger sister), she notes that she and Kazusa look really alike, but that Kazusa also resembles Kazune. Probably because Kazusa was created based on Himeka's appearance...
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Averted: Himeka loves bugs, in contrast to her cousin Kazune, who hates them.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko

After Kazuto's colleague Kirihiko targeted the fruits of their research regarding the power of God, Kazuto hid the research inside Himeka and split her into two: the other being Kujo Himeka.
