Ranshe Mei

Voiced by: Maaya Sakamoto

Mother of Ranka Lee and Brera Stern. Assistant to Mao Nome as she studied the Vajra.

  • Incurable Cough of Death: Implied to have had a V-Type Infection in a flashback when she coughs just like Sheryl.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: Ranka was immune to V-Type infections because her mother had it while she was pregnant with her. We know she wasn't herself immune because her older brother did not have this immunity (nor apparently an infection), and it's quite telling when in a flashback we see her coughing suddenly, just like Sheryl.

Mysterious Bird/Gavil

Voiced by: Akio Suyama

Appears only in the Macross FB7 crossover movie. Is actually the Protodeviln Gavil who has somehow gone to the Frontier fleet. He's dropping old VHS tapes containing recorded footage from the Protodeviln War, leaving them in the hands of Ozma and the rest of the SMS crew.

At first, Ozma thinks that this may be a warning of an impending Protodeviln invasion, but it turns out that Gavil simply wants the truth behind the war and the fate of the 7th Fleet to be known.

  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Somewhat, while viewers familiar with Macross 7 will be able to tell who he is immediately, those who missed that show might not.
  • Verbal Tic: Always mentions the word "beauty" whenever he speaks. In fact, this is our first clue to his identity.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Can transform into a giant bird and spends most of the movie in this form. Him transforming back into his usual form is treated as The Reveal.

  • Winged Humanoid: In his true form, he resembles a human with angel-like wings.

A small green animal that Ranka adopts early in the series and keeps as a pet. Mostly just there to be cute, but there's more to the little guy than is immediately apparent...
  • Pet Baby Wild Animal: Ai-kun is a baby and was living wild in the parks of Island 1 when Ranka found him. It's a baby Vajra.
  • The Reveal: Late in the series, Ai-kun undergoes a metamorphosis, revealing itself to be a larval stage of the Vajra. It remains just as affectionate around Ranka as ever though, and in fact it's this revelation that convinces Ranka that peaceful co-existence with the Vajra is possible.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Absolutely adorable. Even after growing into it's Nymph stage, it remains cutely affectionate, even if downgraded to Ugly Cute.
  • Team Pet: His main role in the series, up until The Reveal.
