Characters from the anime and manga "Tegami Bachi," (Letter Bee.)
The Bee HiveThe headquarters of the delivery service where all the "Bees" work. Located in Yuusari, the middle-class area of AmberGround.
Current Letter Bees and their Dingoes
Lag SeeingThe main protagonist. A very focused and unfailingly polite young boy. He is a former letter delivered by Gauche Suede to his aunt. His encounter with Gauche inspired him to become a Letter Bee. His Spirit Amber attack is called "Red Needle" and is able to visualize the memories held within whatever it is shot at. He can also somehow control the direction it goes. He has Spirit Amber implanted in his left eye socket.
Tropes associated with Lag:
- Ambiguously Human: He's essentially a shard of the Sun given form by the Spirit Amber. Inside him is the souls of many people that the Sun stole to be its light, among them the part that Gauche lost in the Day of Flicker.
- Chaste Hero: He's only 12, so he never considers his intimate relationship with Niche as anything romantic. Subverted later when he proclaims his Love Confession to Sylvette, showing that he's not completely Oblivious to Love.
- Determinator: Sees everything he starts to the end, no matter what.
- Eyepatch of Power: The patch of hair covering his left eye. Seems to make him more cute than intimidating.
- Frickin' Laser Beams: Like everyone else, but he can also shoot them from his hands.
- Glass Cannon: Like most Bees, but he seems to take the cake.
- Goal in Life: Three. To become Head Bee, to find his mother again (which ties into the first, since she's most likely in the capital) and to see Gauche again.
- The Hero: Who is also The Heart, which is an awesome power, by the way. Did you know that?
- Hero-Worshipper: To Gauche.
- Heroic Albino: Has white hair and one red eye, but is one of the nicest characters in the whole series.
- Heroic Bastard: Possibly. He's definitely not curious where his dad is.
- Heroic BSoD: Lag after Gauche's FaceHeel Turn
- Heroic RRoD: He puts a lot into his heart bullets. As a result, he gets sick often.
- Meaningful Name: "Lagrima" means tears.
- Missing Mom: His mother was taken away by the government at the start of the series, and one of the reasons he wanted to become Head Bee is so that he can go to the capital to find her.
- Naked First Impression: When he arrives at the Bee-Hive, he introduces himself right away. While still in his boxers.
- Orphan's Plot Trinket: His Spirit Amber eye.
- Peek-a-Bangs: His bangs cover his Spirit Amber eye.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: His eyes are naturally red and the Spirit Amber in his left socket is also red. Subverted because he's very benevolent.
- Serious Business: Letters and memories, of course.
- To Be a Master: He wants to be Head Bee.
- When All You Have Is a Hammer...: Red Needle typically can destroy Gaichu and convey memories to people that resolve their problems, sometimes in the same shot.
- Wide-Eyed Idealist: In contrast to people like Mock, wants to see all deliveries through to the end and do so in a way that is good for the sender and recipient.
- Wholesome Crossdresser: He makes an adorable girl.
NicheShe is Lag's personal bodyguard, AKA Dingo. Niche was a letter Lag encountered on his way to the Bee-Hive and he delivered to her destination, a side-show circus called Love Someone Down. She is actually the "Child of Maka" (lit. the Child of Greatness) and as a result, has golden, 'sword-like' hair, blue eyes and arms resembling that of a bear.
Tropes associated with Niche:
- A-Cup Angst: She normally does not dwell on it, but she will look upon her own chest unfavorably when she's comparing herself to other girls, especially if she perceives a girl as a "threat" (in the sense of her "stealing" Lag away from her). Her excitement of being temporarily aged up is even soured when she realizes she lacks an ample bosom and body (in comparison to Sylvette and her sister).
- Action Girl: She's the primary fighter in Lag's team, and is one of the best dingoes in the series.
- Bodyguard Crush: Very attached to Lag and takes her job to protect him very seriously.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: Since Lag is her world, she's generally not pleased when she's not the center of his.
- The Comically Serious: She's a grumpy little girl who doesn't understand jokes, but her rather odd habits, and the way people (especially Lag) reacts to it is frequently used as a source of comedy.
- I Have the High Ground
- Innocent Fanservice Girl: She doesn't like to wear clothes (the only reason she does is because Lag asked her to), and would strip whenever she's annoyed with Lag to spite him.
- The Lancer: She's a hot-headed fighter who accompanies the sensitive Non-Action Guy Lag.
- Line-of-Sight Name: She's called 'Niche' because, well, that's where Lag found her. It works.

- Prehensile Hair: Her hair can morph into virtually anything, including weapons.
- Really 700 Years Old: Despite her childlike appearance, she's been around for at least two hundred years.
- Serious Business: Being a Dingo.
- Stay in the Kitchen: Despite being sad to say goodbye to her, Lag initially thinks it's too dangerous for Niche to be his dingo as a young girl. He gets over it fairly quickly.
- 10-Minute Retirement: Tries to quit being Lag's dingo after drinking poisoned water and subsequenly losing to Roda. She gets better.
- Third-Person Person: Refers to herself as "Niche".
- Took a Level in Badass: She can now make some pretty intricate things with her hair, after training with her sister.
SteakNiche's live bait and emergency food rations. He followed her from Love Someone Down and usually is a Head Pet. Steak seems to have accepted that one day Niche may make good on her desire to eat him. He also appears to be a Kapellmeister and the Last of His Kind.
Tropes associated with Steak:

His Spirit Amber attack is "Yellow Bomb" and uses pieces of his hunger via landmines.

His parents were killed by Gaichuu when he was a child, leading him to become a Bee in order to exact vengeance. He likes cats; in fact his Dingo is a panther named "Wasiolka." His Spirit Amber attack is "Blue Thorn" and shoots pieces of his hate.

His Spirit Amber, Sea Blue Ultramarine, is in his motorcycle. His Dingo is a hawk named Harry.
Tropes associated with Jiggy:
- Aloof Big Brother: Note that in this case, 'aloof' does not mean 'bad'. He really does love and care for his adoptive sister, he's just sort of understated about it. As in 'to the point that she completely despised him until discovering just how much he's done to take care of her over the years'.

Aria's Spirit Amber ability is the Heart Restoration Bullet, which she executes by playing music on her violin. The music has a healing effect on everyone who hears it.
