Family Nakajima

    Genya Nakajima 

Genya Nakajima

Voiced by: Toru Okawa

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5308667686_4989.jpg

Subaru and Ginga's adoptive father, Quint's husband, a Major and leader of the 108th Battalion, where Hayate served at some point between the airport fire and the present. After the Grand Finale of StrikerS, he adopts Cinque, Nove, Dieci and Wendi into his family.


  • 108: Genya commands the Ground Forces' 108th Battalion.
  • Adult Fear:
    • Genya's elder daughter Ginga gets kidnapped by the cyborgs during the attack on Ground Force HQ, and his younger daughter Subaru gets hospitalized. In the third Sound Stage of the series, he approaches her and recommends that she withdraw from the case, emphasizing how hard it is on her, but is willing to accept her decision to continue. When you consider that his wife was killed in the line of duty, it's easy to see that he fears losing Subaru too.
    • The beginning of the season also had this when both Subaru and Ginga were trapped in a burning airport and nearly killed.
  • Badass Family: Being the father and head of six Cyborgs and, possibly in the future, of an Eclipse Driver. And his children are all members of the TSAB now.
  • The Cameo: He has two brief appearances in ViVid and appears in a few of Thoma's flashbacks in Force.
  • Good Parents: One of the reasons the reformed Cyborgs under his parenting are doing so well is his skill and affection as a dad.
  • Men Don't Cry: Averted in a flashback image of his wife's funeral.
  • The Mentor: He took on Hayate as an apprentice when she served under him in the 108th Battalion, teaching her most of the skills that she uses as an officer. As a result, she continues to view him with a great deal of respect even after she's long since outranked him.
  • Muggle Foster Parents: For all six of his combat-cyborg daughters.
  • Non-Action Guy: The only male in the Nakajima family prior to Thoma, and the only one without any form of magical power.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: As The Leader of the 108th Battalion. An example would be giving Hayate the benefit of the doubt despite her criminal history because of the details of said history.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Downplayed in INNOCENTS, where his daughters are all his biological children.
  • Respected by the Respected: Hayate vastly outranks him in power, influence, and rank, but continues to defer to him whenever they interact due him having been her mentor.
  • Vehicular Theme Naming: His family name is named after the Nakajima Aircraft Company.

    Quint Nakajima 

Quint Nakajima

Voiced by: Asako Dodo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/momentaufnahme_4_14_01_2014_15-42_1369.png

She is the late adoptive mother of Ginga and Subaru Nakajima, as well as the wife of Genya Nakajima. She was, along with Megane Alpine, also a member of Zest Grangaitz's team that investigated the Combat Cyborg Incident. Like most members, she died during the battle against the Numbers and the Type IV Gadget Drones eight years before the beginning of the story.


  • Action Mom: Twelve years before StrikerS (two years before even the original series), she rescued Ginga and Subaru and adopted them.
  • Ancestral Weapon: After her death, her Revolver Knuckles were split between her daughters.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: With Megane when they faced the Type IV Gadget Drones. Quint died and Megane fell in a coma.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: She has thick eyebrows like Cinque.
  • Breaking the Bonds: Although the spell is introduced by Einhart Stratos, Unchain Knuckle, a spell which breaks any bind and shield, is one of Quint's signature attacks.
  • Dual Wielding: Not uncommon for a Power Fist wielder, but she's the only known person who can handle two Revolver Knuckles at once without trouble.
  • Foreshadowing: In Subaru's Minor Kidroduction, she only called for her father and sister, but not her mother. This foreshadowed that Quint died long before.
  • Full-Contact Magic: She's a Shooting Arts practitioner, and she taught her daughters this fighting style.
  • Good Parents: Both Subaru and Ginga remember her quite fondly.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: She's been really close with Megane since their adolescence.
  • Lovely Angels: With Megane, Lutecia's mom, who was her partner.
  • Mum Looks Like a Sister: Amy mistakes her for being Subaru's older sister in INNOCENTS.
  • Not Actually His Child: Inverted. She adopted Gigna and Subaru, but it later turned out that they were cloned from her stolen DNA.
  • One-Hit Kill: She taught her daughters that it's important for a close combat mage to defeat the enemy with one strong blow.
  • Posthumous Character: She died eight years before StrikerS.
  • Power Fists: Her Revolver Knuckles.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Has long hair like Ginga.
  • Related in the Adaptation: She's Jail's younger sister in INNOCENTS. Downplayed with her six daughters, who are all her biological children rather than being adopted.
  • Sempai/Kohai: She was Momoko's kohai during their school years in the INNOCENT continuity.
  • Signature Move: Her Wing Road, which is inherited by her daughters. And Unchain Knuckle is another one, according to Subaru.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: She's alive in INNOCENTS, living with her husband and her six daughters.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Not that strong, but a reason why she and Genya adopted Ginga and Subaru was because their faces and hair colors resemble her. Justified, they were created through clonal culture and they are cloned from her DNA.
  • That Thing Is Not My Child!: Averted. Finding out that her adopted daughters were actually cloned from her didn't change her relationship with them in any way.
  • Truly Single Parent: It turns out that Subaru and Ginga are actually clones of her. She doesn't find out until after she adopted them (her DNA was stolen without her knowledge or consent), and it didn't affect her decision to raise them as her daughters one iota.
  • Two Girls to a Team: She and Megane were the only female members in Zest's team.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: She's an Action Mom after all.
  • Vehicular Theme Naming: Her first is named after Honda Quint and her surname is named after the Nakajima Aircraft Company.
  • You Gotta Have Purple Hair: Not uncommon in this franchise.

Belkan Saint Church

    Carim Gracia 

Carim Gracia

Voiced by: Nao Takamori

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Carim_3279.jpg

The leader of the Belkan Saint Church. She is a close friend of Hayate, whom she views as a younger sister. During StrikerS, Carim is one of Riot Force Six's sponsors, along with Chrono and Lindy.


  • Big Good: The Bigger Good if you view Hayate as the Big Good. Carim, along with Chrono and Lindy, have the permission to release the limiters of the three Aces and Signum and Vita.
  • Cassandra Truth: Regius Gaiz continually ignores the Church's warnings about Jail's attack on the Ground Forces HQ.
  • Hair Decoration: Has a hair band on her head.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Fitting for her role as the Church's young head.
  • High Priestess: The head of the Saint Church.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Matching to her overall character design as a good character.
  • Informed Ability: She is a knight like the Wolkenritter and Schach, but we never see her fighting because she's the church's authority.
  • Just Friends: She and Chrono have been friends for years.
  • Magic Knight: She's referred as a knight for most of the time. She is also a practitioner of Ancient Belkan magic, who are usually knights.
  • Pet the Dog: After Chantez Arpinion, the church's representative, lost to Victoria Dahlgrün in the Inter-Middle Championship, Carim pays a visit to Chantez, comforts her and encourages her to try it again in the next tournament.
  • Proper Lady: Well, she's the leader of the Saint Church. Of course, she is a Proper Lady.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Fitting for her role as the Church's young head.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: In contrast with Regius Gaiz.
  • Scare 'em Straight: She pretends to use her prophecy abilities to read Chantez's future in ViVid Life, claiming that she'll die if she continues on her current path. The next day, Chantez' behavior has drastically improved.
  • Superpower Lottery Winner: Her Prophetinschriften is a Rare Skill.
  • Vagueness Is Coming: Her ability, Prophetinschriften, was clearly made with this trope in mind. It allows her to see the future... in the form of ancient Belkan poems. Needless to say, the poems are extremely difficult to translate and interpret accurately.
  • Vehicular Theme Naming: After Toyota Camry Gracia.

    Schach Nouera 

Schach Nouera

An inspector for the TSAB. He was adopted into Carim's family in his childhood, and is also good friends with Chrono and Hayate. He has the rare Ancient Belkan skill known as Unendlichjagdnote , which summons magical dogs that can be used for reconnaissance and combat.


    Megane Alpine 

Megane Alpine

Voiced by: Mai Nakahara

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/momentaufnahme_5_14_01_2014_15-45_2508.png

She's Lutecia's mother, and was, along with Quint Nakajima, a member of Zest Grangaitz's team during the Combat Cyborg Incident. Unlike her comrades, she survived the ambush but fell into coma and was captured by Jail Scaglietti, who used her to bargain with her daughter Lutecia. Her daughter's mission was to locate Relics for Scaglietti and in return, she is allowed to keep the one that, so Scaglietti explained, would "revive" Megane (specifically, number 11). She finally awakened after the JS Incident, having spent eight years comatose, and was placed in rehabilitation on Carnaaji, watched over by Lutecia and her summons.


  • Action Mom: Lutecia was two when Megane investigated the Combat Cyborg Incident.
  • Ancestral Weapon: She was the original holder of Asclepius, her daughter's current Device.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In ViVid, her eyes are red instead of purple.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: With Quint, when they faced the Type IV Gadget Drones. Quint died and Megane fell in a coma.
  • Barbie Doll Anatomy: She was naked in one of Scaglietti's People Jars, but we don't see any nipples or anything else.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: In episode 6, when Scaglietti walks down the corridor, we see many women in People Jars, including Megane in jar #11, even before Lutecia was shown or introduced.
  • Convenient Coma: She fell into a coma eight years before StrikerS began. She eventually wakes up after the Grand Finale.
  • Combat Commentator: In the mock battle in ViVid, along with Sein.
  • Curtains Match the Window: In contrast to her red-eyed daughter, Megane has purple eyes.
    • This changes in ViVid where she has red eyes like Lutecia (shown in the FULL COLORS edition). Despite this, a promotional art of ViVid shows her retaining purple eyes.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Quint since their adolescence.
  • It's All My Fault: She blames herself what Lutecia had to live through.
  • Lovely Angels: With Quint, Subaru and Ginga's late mother.
  • Mum Looks Like a Sister: She looks more like Lutecia's older sister. Maybe the People Jars prevented her from aging? In ViVid, she looks slightly older and more obviously like a mother.
  • People Jars: That kept her alive in Scaglietti's labor.
  • Punny Name: Averted. Her name has neither the same pronunciation as the Japanese word "megane" ("glasses") nor does she wear glasses.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Like her daughter, she has very long hair.
  • Retired Badass: Due to her "death", she isn't an investigator anymore, and rehabilitates in Carnaaji. In her youth, she was also a participant of a DSAA Inter-Middle Championship's City Tournament, a feat that not even Team Nakajima could accomplish.
  • Sole Survivor: She's the only one of her team who survived, but she fell into a coma.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Alpine or Alpino?
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Her daughter looks almost identical to Megane, only with marks on her forehead... which she doesn't have anymore. She also has four hair prongs going down her forehead, whereas Megane has only two. They also have different eye colors (except in ViVid where her eyes are red, too).
  • Two Girls to a Team: She and Quint were the only female members in Zest's team.
  • Tricked-Out Gloves: She was the original owner of Asclepius.
  • Vehicular Theme Naming: Her full name is a double reference to the French car manufacturer Renault. Her given name comes from the Renault Mégane, while her family name comes from another French car manufacturer, Alpine, which was bought out by Renault in the 1970s.
  • You Gotta Have Lavender Hair: Like her daughter.

    Tiida Lanster 

Tiida Lanster

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/momentaufnahme_1_25_01_2014_12-19_1848.png

He's Teana late older brother and was a captain of the Capital Air Force, who hoped to become an Enforcer. After their parents died in an accident, he raised his 11-years-younger sister by himself, but Tiida was presumambly killed during his last mission where he failed to capture a wanted mage. His superiors later criticized him, calling him a failure and saying that he should have apprehended the criminal even if it cost him his life. Tiida's death traumatized Teana, who enlisted in TSAB to prove to everyone that the bullets of the Lansters are not to be taken lightly.


  • Big Brother Instinct: He has to raise his younger sister by himself as any good older brother would do after the death of their parents.
  • Bishounen: He was one of the better looking officers who are introduced so far.
  • Death by Origin Story: His death and the critical comment about his last mission motivated Teana to become an elite mage and an Enforcer; however, Teana also developed an inferiority complex, and her motivation was also one of the reasons why Teana pushed herself too hard with her training.
  • Failure Knight: What his superiors thought about him when he died.
  • Family Theme Naming: Vehicular Theme Naming aside, his sister is Teana/Tiana and he is Tiida.
  • Flight: This is ambiguous, as the Capital Air Force's membership is not restricted to aerial mages.
  • The Gunslinger: Apparently a gunner-type mage like his sister, considering that she wants to prove that the bullets of the Lansters are not to be taken lightly.
  • Kick the Dog: After he died and failed to capture a criminal, his superiors gave a critical comment about his failure and called him a failure himself. And the ten-year-old Teana had to listen to it.
  • Light Is Good: He was a member of the Capital Air Force, but he wore the white Tactical Instructor uniform like Nanoha and Vita instead of the red uniform. Ironically, as his dream was to become an Enforcer, he would wear the black uniform.
  • Parental Abandonment: His parents died in an accident and he was Promoted to Parent for Teana until he died, too. In INNOCENTS, they are alive, but absent... and so is he.
  • Posthumous Character: He died six years before StrikerS.
  • Promoted to Parent: After the death of their parents, Tiida raised his younger sister by himself.
  • Related in the Adaptation: In INNOCENTS, he has another younger sister in form of Linith, the middle child.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: He's alive in INNOCENTS, but has yet to appear.
  • Stealth Pun: He's named after the Nissan Tiida and he's Teana's older brother. In other words, Tiida-niisan.
  • Vehicular Theme Naming: After Nissan Tiida. His sister is also named after a Nissan car.

Voiced by: Tetsuya Kakihara

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/momentaufnahme_2_15_06_2014_04-28_412.png

A member of Genya Nakajima's Battalion 108 and Ginga's superior.


    Fern Corrado 

Fern Corrado

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ferncorrado_7195.jpg
"The meaning of strength, the reason why you two lost to me. Well then, here's my question."

Fern Corrado is a character who only appears in the StrikerS supplementary manga. A female major and the superintendent of the Fourth Ground Forces Academy, where Subaru and Teana attended in 0072. Before she was given a position at the Academy, Fern was member of the Aerial Tactical Instructor Corps. She trained Nanoha and Fate and defeated them in a mock battle fairly easily at least once.


  • All There in the Manual: She never appears in the anime, but only in the supplementary manga.
  • Boom Stick: She used just a common Storage Device, which is used by most soldiers, to defeat Nanoha and Fate.
  • Cool Old Lady: If defeating two of the three Aces isn't cool enough.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: She defeated Nanoha and Fate fairly easily.
  • Eyes Always Shut: For most of the time.
  • Flight: Averted. Despite being a former member of the Aerial Tactical Instructor Corps, she is a ground mage.
  • Koan: After defeating Nanoha and Fate, she gave them this question: "To defeat someone stronger than you, you must not be weaker than that person." Several years later, Nanoha gives this question to the Forwards.
  • Meaningful Name: If this spelling of her name is indeed right, Fern is German for "far".
  • The Mentor: To Nanoha and Fate.
  • Vehicular Theme Naming: After Volkswagen Corrado.
  • Veteran Instructor: Formerly. But she made sure that the young Nanoha and Fate would never forget her lesson about strength.
  • Weak, but Skilled: She's an AA-rank ground mage, but defeated Nanoha and Fate who were both AAA+ aerial mages just with her skills and experiences, apparently. We don't see the fight, but the aftermath has them singed and panting on their knees, while she's just standing there without a hair out of place.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/three_admirals_540.jpg
From left to right: Leone Phils, Largo Kiel, Midget Crowbel

The "Three Legendary Admirals" of the TSAB, Leone Phils, Largo Kiel and Midget Crowbel, who took over the leadership of the Bureau after the TSAB High Council's official retirement.


  • Ambiguously Brown: Largo Kiel has a much darker skin than his two pale collegues.
  • Badass Beard: Largo Kiel has a very long beard, and he has the coolest title among the three.
  • Bald of Awesome: Largo Kiel with his awesome title.
  • Big Good: All three of them have the highest authority of the TSAB. At least two of them (Midget Crowbel and Largo Kiel) contribute to the destruction of the Saint's Cradle.
  • Cool Old Guy/Cool Old Lady: Vita thinks they are cool and likes them.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Midget Crowbel.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Largo Kiel.
  • Junior Counterpart: The three Aces, the geniuses of their generation, have been compared with the Three Legendary Admirals on at least one occassion. This is visible in form of their uniforms. Midget Crowbel and Nanoha wear Air Force uniforms, Fate and Leone Phils wear Enforcer uniforms, and Largo Kiel and Hayate wear Dimensional Navy uniforms.
  • Minor Major Character: Very important in the setting, but not important enough for more than one line of dialogue.
  • Red Baron:
    • Leone Phils: "Judicial Advisor".
    • Largo Kiel: "Honorary Marshal of the Armed Forces".
    • Midget Crowbel: "Bureau Chief of Staff".
  • Shounen Hair: Leone Phils has blond, Spiky Hair despite his age.
  • Smurfette Principle: Midget Crowbel is the only woman among the three admirals.
  • Vehicular Theme Naming: After Subaru Leone, Nissan Largo and Daihatsu Midget, respectively.
  • You Gotta Have Purple Hair: Midget Crowbel, in contrast to the other two admirals with their realistic hair colors.

    Vivio Takamachi 

Vivio Takamachi

Voiced by: Kaori Mizuhashi

Note: This section is for tropes introduced before ViVid. For the rest, see Vivio's entry in the ViVid character sheet.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vivio_takamachi.png

A Mystical Waif originally found by the Forwards crawling out of the sewers while chained to a case containing a Relic. She wakes up looking for her mama and, before long, comes to identify Nanoha and Fate as her mother figures. However, she is later gets kidnapped by Jail and his Numbers and it is revealed that she was is the clone of the Sankt Kaiser - the saint king (of the gender-neutral kind) of Ancient Belka. In the final battle of StrikerS, she is forced by Quattro to fight Nanoha against her will. Eventually, mother and daughter are reunited after Nanoha unleashes her most comprehensive befriending to date. Thereafter, Nanoha formally adopts Vivio.

By StrikerS Sound Stage X, she is a librarian of the Infinity Library, and is being taught magic by Yuuno. In spite of their involvement with her kidnapping, she has become great friends with Lutecia and the reformed Numbers. At the end of the Sound Stage, she makes friends with Ixpellia, a ruler from Ancient Belka.

Vivio is the main character of the ViVid manga and a member of Team Nakajima.


  • Anti-Magic: Aside from providing unparalleled defense in battle, the Saint's Armornote  has a strong AMF effect, which weakens all incoming magic and slowly erodes binding spells cast upon Vivio. Her Adult Mode in ViVid lacks this.
  • Artificial Family Member: Both played straight and subverted. Straight in that she is a clone of Saint King Olivie Sägebrecht who Vivio considers an ancestor. Subverted in that her appearance would indicate she's the biological daughter of Nanoha and Fate when they are actually her adopted parents.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: You know those attacks Vivio was flinging around at the end of StrikerS? The DVD notes reveal that they're all attacks from her mamas. How did she acquire them? Chapter 10 of the supplementary manga greatly implied that she learned it from watching their combat videos. That's the "gathering magical data" she meant during the penultimate episode of the season.
  • Badass Adorable: Hit by five Starlight Breakers at the same time, but she's still able to stand up, proving that she's able to do that like her mother Nanoha had told her before. For comparison: Fate was rendered unconscious immediately after being hit by one, and The Book of Darkness' defense program was nearly vaporized when hit with a Combination Attack equal to about three. And that's without scaling for ten years of power increase and use of the Blaster System.
  • Beam Spam: Her shooting spell Sacred Cluster spams magical energy bullets; she copied the spell from Nanoha, who used it later in ViVid.
  • Breakout Character: She became so popular, she got her own spin-off manga, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Vivid.
  • Bunnies for Cuteness: Nanoha bought her a plush bunny after Riot Force Six found her. It was burnt when the Numbers and the Gadget Drones destroyed the Long Arch, but it inspired the design of Vivio's Hybrid-Intelligent Device, Sacred Heart, in ViVid.
  • Calling Parents by Their Name: She refers to Nanoha and Fate as Nanoha-mama and Fate-mama due to having to specify which mother she's addressing in a conversation. If Fate isn't present, she'll occasionally just call Nanoha "Mama".
  • Cheerful Child: Not initially but once she was taken to Riot Force Six's Home Base, cleaned up and spent time with her new mamas she was all smilies.
  • Chekhov's Gag: In the supplementary manga, Fate gave her a try to wear the same sideways pigtail like Nanoha, but Vivio said it's too heavy, and Fate told her she can wear it if she's older. In the Grand Finale and afterwards, Vivio's Older Alter Ego has this hairstyle.
  • Clone Jesus: She is the clone of the Sankt Kaiser, the saint king of Ancient Belka.
  • Cloning Blues: After finding out that she's nothing more than a clone made for the purpose of powering the Saint's Cradle, she goes this route. She even stops calling Nanoha "Nanoha-mama" and instead calls her "Nanoha-san" since she doesn't view herself as human. Nanoha helps her the way she knows best; some kind words and copious amounts of firepower.
  • Damsel in Distress: Being kidnapped was not her fault — she was only six at the time.
  • Declaration of Personal Independence: When Nanoha and Fate first adopt her, Nanoha is all about letting her stand on her own - literally, saying that they should let her get to her feet on her own when she trips while running towards them. Fate, on the other hand, instantly runs to her side to help her up. In the finale, after Nanoha defeats a possessed Vivio by unleashing her most powerful attack directly at her, leaving Vivio in a crater, she's just about to run to help her up... when Vivio stops her, insisting that "I can stand up myself." And she does. And it is awesome.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: Played for Laughs in The Movie 1st Sound Stage, where she's worried she'll never find her purpose because she isn't desperate enough.
  • Don't Call Me "Sir": She doesn't like it when Otto, Deed, and Ixpellia call her "Majesty". In ViVid, she doesn't it mind anymore and accepts that's part of their personalities.
  • Epic Fail: Vivio's epic faceplant, immediately after she was told to be careful when running. Given who told her to be careful, it could be argued that Fate was Tempting Fate.
    Fate-mama: "Don't fall, okay?"
    Vivio: "Okay!" (gets another step forward, goes straight into the grass)
    SPLAT.
  • Everything's Better with Rainbows: Her magic color is rainbow-colored and it's known as Kaiserfarbe (Emperor Color).
  • Elemental Punch: Her Plasma Arm spell seems to be an offensive variant of Fate's Thunder Arm.
  • Expy: Her status and role in the plot of StrikerS is very similar to Irui Ganeden in Alpha 2.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: In addition to her heterochromia, she is also copying her mother's hairstyle while in Adult Mode, with a single sideways pigtail.
  • Girlish Pigtails: They look adorable on a six-year-old. She probably has this from Nanoha.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: She carries one around in the home base.
  • God-Emperor: As a clone of the last Sankt Kaiser of Belka, she is this by right if not in point of fact.
  • Hair Decoration: Wears blue hair ribbons, a present from her mother Nanoha.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: A very sweet girl despite her horrible origins.
  • Happily Adopted: By Fate and Nanoha, who have to be the coolest adoptive parents around.
  • Has Two Mommies: Fate and Nanoha. According to one short side story she gives Nanoha presents on mother's day and Fate on father's day, which she calls "second mother's day". It's to the point now that both the current page quote and image for this trope are about Vivio's relationship with Nanoha and Fate.
  • Hereditary Hairstyle: An adopted child version. As a child, she has the almost the same Girlish Pigtails of Nanoha. As Sankt Kaiser, she shares the same side-ponytail hairstyle as Nanoha.
  • Idiot Hair: From her original who had twonote .
  • Improbable Age: A librarian in the Infinity Library in third grade. This is lampshaded by Otto as being improbable in-universe.
  • Interspecies Adoption: She's Belkan and her mothers are an Earthling and Mid-Chidan respectively.
  • I Want My Mommy!: She spends a good chunk of her screen time during the final third of StrikerS crying for Nanoha. Justified since she's a six-year-old girl who was kidnapped, so you can hardly blame her.
  • Kamehame Hadouken: She has copied some attacks of Nanoha and Fate, including Fate's Plasma Smasher and her own version of Nanoha's Impact Cannon.
  • Last of Her Kind: Vivio is the only living member of the Sankt Kaiser bloodline, which had originally been rendered extinct upon Olivie's death.
  • Lightning Bruiser: In her Sankt Kaiser Form, she's a fast fighter who can punch so hard that the whole Cradle is shaking. And her armor provides an AMF effect that weakens incoming magic attacks. Unfortunately, the Redemption Demotion made a Fragile Speedster of her in ViVid.
  • MacGuffin Super Person: She is sought after by the villains because she's the clone of the last Sankt Kaiser, and they need her to activate and control the Saint's Cradle.
  • Magic Librarian: She's working as a librarian at the Infinite Library by the time of StrikerS Sound Stage X.
  • Military Brat: She was adopted and raised by the Bureau's legendary Ace of Aces and Ace of the Navy. She also lived on base with Riot Force 6 for a little less than a year.
  • Multi-Ethnic Name: Vivio could be a Belkan name, and Takamachi is Japanese.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: In StrikerS Sound Stage X, Vivio goes Full Drive to do a data search with MAXIMUM POWER.
  • Mystical Waif: The Forwards find her on their day off, walking about in rags and chained to a Relic.
  • Ojou Ringlets: A hint at her biological heritage is her hairstyle.
  • Only One Name: Until she is adopted by Nanoha. She then takes on her family name in Japanese order, unlike most other Mid-Childian names, which are in Western order.
  • Painful Transformation: Her forced transformation into Sankt Kaiser form is extremely painful.
  • Patchwork Kids: Despite the fact that she's adopted, she looks like a near perfect blend of Nanoha and Fate (with the exception of eye color).
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Though not by her own will, she could destroy a planet thanks to her capability with the Saint Cradle.
  • Picky Eater: Dislikes green peppers at first, but gets over it by the time Riot Force Six disbands.
  • Powered by a Forsaken Child: Provides the trope image. As a vessel for the Saint's Cradle, she is forced by Scaglietti to empower it with her mana.
  • Plot-Relevant Age-Up: For the final battle she becomes a teenager.
  • Prone to Tears: Cries a lot in this season. She has got better since the Sound Stage X.
  • Shared Unusual Trait: She has red and green eyes because the person from whom she was cloned also possesses those features.
  • She Is the King: Sankt Kaiser/Saint King/Sei'ou is gender neutral.
  • Tareme Eyes: As a six-year-old cutie, she has the rounded variety of eyes.
  • Third-Person Person: Not all the time, but often refers to herself by name. This serves to distinguish her from Older Than They Look characters like Vita and Cinque. She eventually drops it since Sound Stage X.
  • Tsurime Eyes: Her Sankt Kaiser Form and later her Adult Mode have these eyes. This is odd, considering that her original had Tareme Eyes regardless of her age.
  • Toilet Humor: Being an Abridged Series, Vivio's Running Gag in the omake comics is that she always needs to go to the toilet.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: She's a six-year-old girl who hasn't had a day of combat training, formal or otherwise. With nothing more than brute strength, she managed to take on the best aerial combat mage in the entire TSAB utilizing the latest in military hardware. And she would have won if she had actually wanted to.
  • Vehicular Theme Naming: After Subaru Vivio.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: Averted. Unlike every other child in the franchise she acts like a six-year-old should. Of course, by the time she's ten, she's grown out of it and this trope is in effect full force.

Laguna Granscenic

Vice's little sister, who was once taken hostage by a criminal and her brother, then a sniper for TSAB, shot her accidentally in her left eye six years ago. Although the situation was resolved and Laguna's eye was healed (presumably, cybernetically), his mistake made Vice doubt himself and give up the sniper career. Before the final confrontation of StrikerS, Laguna seeks Vice out to tell him that she has long forgiven him and to give him strength to return to battle.


  • Artificial Limbs: It's implied that her left eye is replaced with an cybernetic eye.
  • Break the Cutie: She was taken in hostage, and her brother, who tried to save her, shot her accidentally in the eye.
  • Damsel in Distress: Six years before StrikerS, she was taken hostage by a criminal. The reason for it was unknown, but her brother accidentally shot her in the eye during the process.
  • Easily Forgiven: May or may not be subverted. She forgives her brother for his misshot, but we only learn about her forgiveness six years after the incident. The fact that Vice felt guilty for this for six years supports this. In other words, she might not have forgiven him until just before the final battle.
  • Expy: With her haircut and her preference for green clothes, she might be this to Shamal.
  • Eyepatch of Power: She wears a eyepatch in StrikerS, but she takes it off when she talks with Vice about the incident. The epilogue features a photograph of her, Vice, Alto and Signum; Laguna doesn't wear the eyepatch there.
  • Eye Scream: Vice shot her accidentally in the left eye when he was targeting the criminal.
  • Reflectionless Useless Eyes: When she finally removes her eye patch, we see that the eye under it is dull and unfocused. It is never indicated explicitly, however, whether this means that even the advanced medicine on Midchilda cannot restore lost vision, or that she has, in fact, received a cybernetic replacement eye.
  • Vehicular Theme Naming: After Renault Laguna and like her brother after Renault Grand Scénic.

    Karel Harlaown and Liera Harlaown 

Karel Harlaown and Liera Harlaown

From left to right:Liera and Karel.

They are Chrono and Amy's children and fraternal twins. They haven't any appearance in the franchise, it's only known that they live in the Harlaowns' house together with their parents, grandmother Lindy and the Familiar Arf. In StrikerS, they are only three years old.


  • Babies Ever After: Chrono and Amy were only engaged in the A's epilogue. In StrikerS, they are already three years old. Interestingly, they were born in the same year as their parents' marriage year, and Chrono mentioned that "there were various reasons" to marry Amy. Additionally, Arf said that it would be a lot busier in the house when they have children. "When", not "if", so it's implied that Amy might be pregnant at the time of the A's epilogue.
  • Break the Cutie: Averted. They are the only Harlaown children who have not a dramatic childhood.note 
  • Dramatic Irony: Karel and Liera are three years old in StrikerS and live a peaceful childhood within their family. When their father Chrono was three years old, he lost his father Clyde, which was a Death by Origin Story for him.
  • The Ghosts: The twins are only mentioned and they appear only on a photo, but they haven't a single appearance, yet.
  • Half-Identical Twins: Downplayed, Liera's hair is just a bit longer than Karel's.
  • Idiot Hair: Inherited from their mother.
  • Military Brat: They come from a large military family. Their parents, paternal grandparents, and aunt all served in the Dimensional Navy with their grandfather being killed in the line of duty. Plus, two of their cousins were members of Riot Force 6.
  • Mythology Gag: Nanoha and Chrono had twins at the end of the original Lyrical Toy Box scenario.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Since, there are no official spellings for their names, it could be Karel or Carel or Carol or Liera or Riera or Riela or Liela.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Downplayed, but both of them look very similar to Amy.
  • Younger Than They Look: Judging from Fate's photo, they were just a little bit smaller than Arf, who had the appearance of a ten-year-old child according to Subaru, despite that the twins couldn't be older than three. That was either a mistake from Seven Arcs or the twins really look older than they are, in contrast to their father Chrono, who was Older Than He Looked.
