    Ilk 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ilk_by_ladyanaconda_dcuqy05_fullview.jpg
Ilk's age chart.

Biological child of Almighty Tallest Red, Ilk's perhaps the most beloved Irken in the Massive (alongside her father and uncle, of course), especially since she doesn't discriminate about height. Just a thing: don't call her a princess. She's not a damsel in distress who requires a man to come save her, thank you very much!

  • Action Girl: Ilk would rather fight her own battles than let others fight for her, unlike her father and uncle.
  • Animal Talk: She was able to communicate with a swarm of space roaches and get them to board a escape pod to get them out of the Massive.
  • An Arm and a Leg: She nearly lost a leg to an Indokuro attack a when she was young, but it regrew.
  • Baby's First Words: Her first word was Zim, much to her father's dismay.
  • Battle Couple: with Blue.
  • Big Eater: Got it from dad. She left an infirmary at the mention of snacks despite being weak over her injuries.
  • Be Yourself: Ilk was afraid of telling her father that she had no intention of becoming an Invader like him because she didn't want to disappoint him. At the end of Lost, she has finally opened up to Red, and he
  • Black Sheep: Unlike the rest of her race, Ilk doesn't discriminate because of one's height, she's pretty open-minded and overall she lacks the drive that leads the Irken race to subyugate 'inferior' species.
  • Bonding Over Missing Parents: She befriends Blue after learning they have this in common.
  • Cry into Chest: As a smeet, she did this very often with her father.
  • Daddy's Girl: Ilk's very close to her father Red, particularly because he was the one who raised her. She's still exasperated by his habit of treating her like a smeet, though.
  • Damsel in Distress: Averted. Ilk rarely needs someone to save her unless she's somehow incapacitated.
  • Don't Wake the Sleeper: As a smeet, she didn't take it kindly to being awakened from her nap.
  • Drives Like Crazy: As a smeet, she drove the Massive around space with its remote controller, throwing everybody inside around.
  • Engagement Challenge: Ilk goes through this alongside Blue in order to prove she is worthy to be his mate.
  • Family Eye Resemblance: She has her father's crimson red eyes.
  • Fearless Infant: Ilk was quite daring as a smeet. She constantly crawled out of her cradle and wandered around the Massive looking for her father, sometimes even going through dark and narrow ventilation ducts.
  • First Kiss: Downplayed. She actually shared a hug with Blue, but in Sobrekt culture, this can be considered the equivalent of the first kiss.
  • First Pet Story: Ilk's first was a goldfish from Zim. Sadly, Purple kiled it by accident and they got a replacement one, only for it to die of old sage shortly after.
  • Healing Factor: Thanks to the Moondrop Flower stolen from Sobr to save her from a fatal disease, Ilk gained the ability to regenerate missing limbs and heal minor injuries, much like the Sobrekt themselves.
    • Later on, this particular trait enables Red to make a deal with the Control Brains at the end of Lost: she will donate some of her DNA to give this trait to future generations of smeets in exchange for not being assigned as an Invader.
  • I Got Bigger: She had a considerable growth spurt during her years in the Academy. By the time Indokani takes place, she reaches up to Red's chest, much to his delight.
  • Ill Girl: She contracted Drilo's Disease when she was a smeet, which would have killed her hadn't Red and Purple stolen a one-of-a-kind flower from the Sobrekt.
  • Interspecies Friendship: She's more than happy to make friends with other species, including a young Screwhead and Sobrekt, including her love interest.
  • Interspecies Romance: She's in a relationship with Blue, a Sobrekt.
  • Kids Driving Cars: During her early years, she was able to hack a ship to change its coordinates to Earth. In Lost, she snuck out of the Massive in one.
  • Like Father, Like Son: Or in this case, like father, like daughter.
  • Love Interests: Blue.
  • Marry for Love: she and Blue truly love each other.
  • Meet the In-Laws: Blue met her mother-in-law offscreen at some time before Indokani and they seem to be on relatively good terms.
  • Missing Child: One one occasion, she changed her ship's coordinates to Earth instead of Irk, wanting to visit Zim. However, she forgot to inform the people waiting on Irk, leading everyone to assume she was kidnapped on-route by rebels.
  • Missing Mom: Ilk's biological mother died at childbirth, so she lacked a maternal figure during her early years. Further explored in a chapter of The Smeet' in which she becomes interested in maternal affection after watching Dumbo''.
  • Near-Death Experience: Has one after a branch goes right through her abdomen. She's saved thanks to her self-regeneration abilities.
  • Original Character.
  • Parental Substitute: Lena is like a surrogate mother to Ilk, perhaps the first maternal she's ever had in her life.
  • Rule of Empathy: Ilk has a deep sense of empathy which enables her to actually bond with non-Irkens, unlike the rest of her people. This is what later enables her to fall in love with Blue and befriend enslaved species such as a Screwhead.
    • This unique quirk is what makes her unfit for the Invader job, as she can grow attached to any other species and this would have made it impossible for her to eventually betray them to the Irken Empire.
  • So Proud of You: After recovering from her fatal wound, Ilk and Red have a heartfelt talk and he assures her that he'll always be proud of her regardless of the path she wishes to take.
    • Additionally, after succesfully escaping from Hoth, Ilk manages to get a reasonable ceasefire agreement with the Sobrekt leader by herself, which further makes her father proud.
  • Shared Family Quirks: Ilk is as much of a big eater as her father. She quickly darted out of the Ibris's infirmary at the mention of snacks despite being barely recovered from her previous injuries. Additionally, she has trouble in remembering certain words, much like Red.
  • Stubborn Mule: Ilk got this trait from her father. She's constantly
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Ilk is the spitting image of her father.
  • Sweet Tooth: Her favorite types of snacks are sugary ones, especially donuts.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: Since she arrived to the Massive when she was just a smeet, she's technically the youngest Irken living on the Irken flagship.

    Lena

Lena

The Massive's newest doctor as well as Tallest Red's love interest. What she lacks in combat ability she more than makes it up with her medical knowledge and her bigger sense of empathy.

  • AB Negative: She has a rare blood type.
  • Accidental Murder: She didn't intend to kill the Hothian soldier, but it was an instinctive reaction.
  • Action Girl: Averted. Lena is no fighter and would rather stay on the sidelines.
  • Benevolent Boss: She's nicer to her subordinates than her husband. In Lost, she promised Bob to get him a longer break for his spine.
  • Combat Medic: Averted. Lena implies that she forfeited the soldier training in favour of training mainly as a medical drone. Thus, she lacks any combat ability.
  • Closer to Earth: She is more level-headed and rational than Red and Purple, and more likely to think things through.
  • Damsel in Distress: Due to her lack of combat abilities, she's often in this situation. The clearest example is in Lost, where she was easily subdued and knocked out by Captain and taken hostage by the Hothians in two occasions during the climax.
  • Determined Doctor: Her patients' welfare comes before anything.
  • Disposable Love Interest: Averted. Red made it clear she wants no one but her by his side.
  • Freak Out!: She loses it after killing a Hothian in self defense, which violated her doctor's oath.
  • Friendship as Courtship: Her romance with Red started like this.
  • First Kiss: Red kisses her the Irken way (antenna-touching) just as she's awakening in the Ibris's med bay.
  • Forgiven, but Not Forgotten: While she forgives Red for his undue hostility earlier, she makes it clear that she won't trust him again until he has earned it. Thankfully, he did.
  • Good Stepmother: Lena sees Ilk as her own child.
  • HappilyMarried: By the time Indokani takes place, she and Red are happily married.
  • Hands-On Approach: Red helps her like this while giving her tips about combat moves.
  • Hot Consort: She's attractively tall, has a rare eye color and has a thin frame, which in Irken standards is deemed as attractive.
  • Hot Scientist: She's a beautiful doctor.
  • Hysterical Woman: After her first kill, she goes hysterical for violating her doctor's oath.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Her eyes are a shade of cyan-green blue.
  • Interspecies Friendship: She's in relatively good terms with the Raptor Squad.
  • Killing in Self-Defense: In Lost, Lena resorts to this when a Hothian is about to kill her.
  • Love Confession:
  • Love Hurts: She becomes heartbroken when Red screams at her that she's not Ilk's mother, has no say in her upbringing and should remember her place and becomes convinced he doesn't care for her.
  • Love Interests: Red.
  • Moral Dilemma: Due to her doctor's oath, Lena is reluctant to end a life, even if neccesary. This causes her to break down after her first kill even though it was in self-defense.
  • My Secret Pregnancy: She decides to keep her pregnancy a secret from Red to avoid stressing him out even more.
  • One Night Stand Pregnancy: Played with. She and Red are already married by the time they have drunken sex in Indokani.
  • Original Character
  • Parental Substitute: Lena acts as a motherly figure for Ilk.
  • Pregnancy Test Plot: When Gaz points out she might be pregnant, Lena does one to see if she's right. It comes out positive.
  • Take a Third Option: She gives Red one when Iraa holds her hostage by shooting herself in the shoulder and distracting him.
  • Take My Hand: Red holds her hand assuringly before they jump off the Hothian ship before it crashes.
  • The Chick: She's always taking care of those around her, and tries to encourage them to get along.
  • The Medic: Lena's main job is a doctor. She was assigned to work on the Massive' due to her height and'' skill.
  • Wacky Cravings: She takes a strange liking of Sobrekt cuisinem which involves live critters and organs fried in oil due to her pregnancy.
  • Wedding Day: Though not shown, she and Red got married at some point before Indokani.
  • Wedding-Enhanced Fertility: Lena gets pregnant not long after she and Red married.
  • You Remind Me of X: Lena's uncanny resemblance to Tallest Miyuki, Red's first love, is what attracts him in the first place.

    Red 

Almighty Tallest Red is mostly portrayed as in the show: Brilliant, but Lazy. but additionally is made more responsible and serious than his co-Tallest, courtesy of having to look after a smeet.

  • Assassination Attempt: Suffers one at some point between The Smeet' and Lost'' from a pair of kryvtors.

  • Bar Brawl: Got into one in Indokani after getting drunk.
  • Battle Couple: He and Lena, though it's more on his side.
  • Best Friend: Purple.
  • Big Eater: Just like in the series.
  • Big "WHAT?!": After being informed that Sendou is painting the Massive green.
  • Big Word Shout: Does this with Zim's name after the later accidentally becomes Ilk's first word.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: While the smartest and more independent of the two Tallest, he's spent too much time snacking and letting his skills rust, though he was still skilled enough to infiltrate Sobr and steal a flower. He gets back in shape somewhat during the events of Lost.
  • Broken Tears: Red sheds this as he holds his dying daughter in his arms, even begging Lena to save her.
  • Buffy Speak: Terrible with words.
  • Character Development:
    • During the events of the smeet, he becomes more responsible as he gets used to looking after Ilk as he gets attached to her.

  • Disappointed in You: Tells this to Ilk after she finally snaps and tells her she doesn't want to be an Invader.
  • Disposable Love Interest: Played with. After Iraa takes Lena hostage, Red tries to pull this card, but it fails because he cares too much about her.
  • Doesn't Know Their Own Child: He didn't realize Ilk didn't want to be an Invader nor her insecurity over bonding with other species until she finally tells him straight out.
  • Doting Parent: He loves his smeet and loves to pamper her, though this led to him always seeing her as his little smeet even after she grows up.
  • Dynamic Character: So far, he's the character who has evolved the most throughout the series from a lazy, irresponsible leader to a mature, caring father and husband, even gaining a bedrugding respect for inferior species.

  • Fainting: After learning from a message, and not in person, that Ilk is getting married to Blue.
  • Family Eye Resemblance: His daughter has his same eye color.
  • Freak Out!:
  • Friendly Enemy: By the end of Lost, he is on more or less 'friendly' terms with Captain, though neither will admit it.

  • Follow in My Footsteps: He wants Ilk to become an Invader because he was one in his youth.
  • For Your Own Good: His main reasoning behind certain decisions he took regarding Ilk. He made her believe that the indokuro attack in which she lost a leg was a nightmare and withheld the Control Brains' warning from her to protect her feelings, even though this would later damage the foundation of trust between him and his daughter.
  • Good Parents: Red turns out to be a decent father for Ilk despite his flaws.
  • Grand Romantic Gesture: Sharing a snack with Lena and then donating his blood to save her blood counts, as both are things no Tallest would ever do for anyone unless they really for them.
    • For his marriage proposal, he carved Will you marry me? in one of the recent conquered planets with the Massive's laser cannons.
  • Happily Married: With Lena by the time Indokani takes place.

  • I Did What I Had to Do: When he comforts Lena, he recalls his own murder of the two kryvtor assassins in self-defense, but he feels no shame about it. As he put it, it was them or him, Ilk and Purple.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Throughout Indokani, he shows constant disregard for Cheesecake for the latter's misbehavior despite knowing Purple loves him as his own child. Also, while he had good intentions when he had Zim sabotage other competitors to help Purple stay in the exams, he didn't take his co-Tallest's feelings into account, which led to Purple feeling betrayed.
  • Insultof Endearment: Captain refers to him as 'Irken' instead of My Tallest or even Your Tallest, but Red doesn't seem to mind anymore.
  • Jaw Drop: Near the end of Lost when the Ibris comes out of hyperscape and finds the Irken Armada in a chaotic battle against the Sobrekt one.
  • Keeping Secrets Sucks:
    • Hid the fact that Purple killed Ilk's fish when toying with it and they replaced it.
    • Hid the indokuro attack and the moondrop flower theft from Ilk.
    • Hid his blood relation to Ilk from most of the universe, though this one is justified as it is to keep her safe from his enemies.
    • Hid the information about the toxicity of Hoth's atmosphere from Ilk and the Sobrekt.
    • Hid the sabotage on other participants in the indokani exams from Purple.
  • Kick the Morality Pet: After slapping Ilk and while arguing with Blue, he turns on Lena when she tries to talk him down, calling her a mere medical drone, screaming at her that she'll never be Ilk's mother and to mind her own business. He later regrets this.
  • Killing in Self-Defense: His reason for killing the two kryvtor assassins and whoever comes against him and Purple.
  • Like an Old Married Couple: His relationship with Captain resumed.
  • Love Confession: He tells Lena that he loves her after finally escaping from Hoth, and then aboard the Massive, asking her for a chance to prove his love is sincere.

  • Love Interests: First Miyuki, then Lena.
  • Making the Choice for You: He had already decided that Ilk would be an Invader without even asking her opinion about it.
  • Meet The Inlaws: Played with. He meets his fellow in-law, Blue's mother, in Indokani, and it's plainly obvious she hates his guts for murdering her mate and father-in-law, though thankfully she keeps civil about it.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Although he was only trying to help Purple, keeping it a secret from him made Purple believe Red didn't believe in him, hurting his feelings.
  • Oh, Crap!: Happens often.
  • Over Protective Dad: Becomes this in The Smeet and acts like this throughout the series, though it diminishes somewhat after the events of Lost.
  • Papa Wolf: Do not mess with his baby smeet of you know what's good for you.
  • Parental Love Song: He sings a modified version of Baby Mine to Ilk to soothe her down. Unfortunately for him, Purple recorded it.
  • Please Put Some Clothes On: His reaction after realizing Captain is naked in Lost.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: The Leader of the Irken Empire, and he has red eyes.
  • Rejected Apology: Lena rejects his apology for having been a jerk to her.
  • Resentful Guardian: Averted. While he was uncertain of Ilk's presence at first and tried to return her, by the end of the first chapter of the Smeet he's grown attached to her.
  • Rock–Paper–Scissors: Has one with Captain to decide the best way to go down the cliff, but his lack of a thumb makes it harder to tell which sign he's making.
  • Sarcasm Mode: Constantly uses it, especially when annoyed over something.
  • Second Love: Lena.
  • Stubborn Mule: Once he sets his mind, there's no changing it.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Ilk has most of his traits, particularly his crimson eyes and skin tone.
    • Since it's never specified how her mother looked like, it's hard to determine whether she has any of her physical traits.
  • Take Me to Your Leader: Asks this to Captain after learning of the Massive's take over.
  • Take My Hand: He holds Lena's hand reassuringly
  • The Bet: Makes one with Purple in The Smeet over Ilk's first word, then one with Sendou in Indokani to win back the Massive from him: if Cheesecake defeats Maugrim in an upcoming tournament, he'll give it back.
  • The Unapologetic: He outright refuses to apologize to Blue for killing his grandfather and father. In a way he is right, as he was merely defending himself from two assassins and doesn't regret doing it in the least.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Donuts and a bunch of cinnamon rolls Tallest Miyuki made for him.

    Purple 

Almighty Tallest Purple is mostly portrayed as in the show: immature, childish and less independent than his co-Tallest. However, he's also shown with Hidden Depths whenever the situation calls for it.

  • A Boy and His X: He and Cheesecake.
  • Adorkable: So far, his only friend is Red because they knew each other from childhood, but he's never shown in a friendly manner with anyone else that isn't Lena or Ilk.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Is called 'Pur' by Red. Ilk calls him Uncle Pur.
  • Anxiety Dreams: In Indokani, he has a nightmare about Cheesecake leaving him behind and being killed by Maugrim, and everybody mocking him for his failures.
  • Assassination Attempt: Suffered one with Red when two kryvtors snuck into the Massive. Thankfuly, it failed.
    • In Indokani, he's hunted down and nearly killed during the final examination by a group of former aspirants who were disqualified thanks to Red's sabotage.
  • Bad Boss: He doesn't care about the wellbeing of his underlings unless they're tall, give them snacks or both. The most evident examples are Invader Larb and Lena.
  • Berserk Button: Messing with his snacks, messing with ''cheesecake' or messing with his niece.
  • Best Friend: Red.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Don't be fooled by his childish and immature tendencies. He has a darker side if you know which buttons to press.
  • Big Eater: Like in the show, he's constantly portrayed eating something.
  • Bound and Gagged: Got this treatment in Lost thrice.
  • Bridal Carry: Captain had to carry him in the climax of Lost
  • Character Development: Goes through this the most during the events of Indokani.
  • Childhood Friends: With Red.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: While even more irresponsible than Red, Purple too has hidden skills, particularly his academic knowledge and ability to fix things. E.G: Repairing the oven single-handedly just to get his donut production back on track, and piloting the Ibris out of Hoth while Marousi and Foxtrot were too weak to do so.
  • Compressed Abstinence: Gets something similar to this during the first few hours on Hoth after Fury eats all of his doughnut supply. He wails all night and then hallucinates with bugs. Red has even dubbed these episodes as Doughnut Abstinence Syndrome, DAS for short.
  • Cool Uncle: Acts as this towards Ilk, and often pampers her more than Red.
  • Delicious Distraction: In the Smeet, he gets distracted by a newly-baked bunch of cinnamon rolls and leaves Ilk alone with a bag of discarded doughnuts despite being told not to give her any sugar.
  • Doting Parent: To Cheesecake. He fails to properly discipline or train him and instead pampers him with food and affection.
  • Dynamic Character: He acquired a fondness of smeets in The Smeet, respect for the Raptor Squad after the events of Lost, but it's in Indokani when he evolves the most.
  • Egg Sitting: While in Hoth, he looked after Cheesecakes egg while Masouri and the others were forced to repair the Ibris by the Hothians, and ended up hatching him. Then in Indokani, the first stage of the Indokani exams involved looking a fake egg during an entire day.
  • Feed by Example: He eats some baby food in The Smeet to prompt Ilk to eat and ends up eating it himself. In Lost he does the same with Cheesecake to show him donuts are food.
  • First Pet Story: Indokani focuses on him and Cheesecake.
  • Freak Out!: He goes into full-panic mode after confronting Sendou over his take over of the Massive.
  • Friendly Enemy: After the events of Lost, he gains a newfound respect for the Raptor Squad and the Sobrekt even though he still acts like a jerk somewhat in Indokani.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: He has the shorter fuse of the two Tallest.
  • Hidden Depths: He shows his hidden skills throughout the series:
    • In The Smeet, he was mentioned to have fixed an oven on his own just to get his doughnuts made.
    • In Lost, he acted more like a leader to the other Invaders when separated from Red and was able to pilot the Ibris out of Hoth.
  • Honorary Uncle: To Ilk.
  • Jaw Drop: Near the end of Lost when the Ibris comes out of hyperscape and finds the Irken Armada in a chaotic battle against the Sobrekt one.
  • Naïve Animal Lover: While he loves Cheesecake, he has no knowledge about an indokuro's needs and unintentionally fails to provide him a proper diet and care.
  • Oh, Crap!: After dropping the incubator and cracking the indokuro egg in Lost.
  • Overprotective Dad: He refuses to discipline Cheesecake and certainly doesn't let anyone else do so. He gets worried when away from him for too long and is dismayed at the idea of leaving him alone in the wilderness without snacks and a soft bed.
  • Pet Monstrosity: Cheesecake, his pet indokuro.
  • Post-Victory Collapse: Purple faints running a few meters in a race in Indokani; thankfully, he passed to the next stage.
  • Power-Strain Blackout: Due to years of neglecting his physical condition, Purple gets exhausted shortly after running in a short race and even requires an oxygen mask.
  • Purple Eyes: His eye color, which is a rare coloration in Irken standards.
  • Stubborn Mule: Much like Red, there's no changing his mind when he sets on something, and certainly refuses to admit he's wrong.
  • Sweet Tooth: He can't go on without his donuts and snacks for too long, as mentioned up above.
  • The Nose Knows: Was able to smell cinnamon rolls in the Massive's kitchen all the way from Red's room, and could tell Zim was carrying donuts.
  • Third Wheel: To Lena and Red, who have become a couple after Lost.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Donuts. He even has a private stash of exclusive flavors.
  • You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry: Once you make him angry, beware. Hell will break loose.

The Raptor Squad

A Elite squad of four kryvtors and an indokuro often assigned to work in the field. They were introduced in Lost.

    In General 

  • Alien Animals: They are Kryvtors, anthropomorphic velociraptors.
  • Berserk Button: In common, they hate when somebody endangers a member of their team, as they are fiercely protective of each other. Individually:
    • Blue: someone daring to hurt Ilk, Fury or his pack mates.
    • Masouri: someone damaging his beloved Ibris.
    • Echo: anyone, anyone, calling her weak or underestimating her because of gender.
    • Foxtrot: Still unknown.
    • Fury: someone grabbing his tail or trying to take his food.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Blue for Blue, orange for Masouri, purple for Foxtrot and green for Echo, black for Fury.
  • Combat and Support: They fight together as a team, most evidently during the climax in Lost.
  • Cool Ship: The Ibris.
  • Character Shilling: They idolize Zim due to all the things he inadvertently did to the Irken Empire.
  • Character Tic: They tap their talon claws, much like actual velociraptors, when stressed, anxious or to communicate via secret code.
  • Dual Wielding: All of the team carries twin weapons.
    • Blue has twin laser kunai.
    • Masouri has butterfly twin swords.
    • Echo has dual sai.
    • Foxtrot has twin swords.
  • Hates Being Touched: According to Sobrekt culture, physical touch is a form of showing affection in an intimate way, so they seldom touch other people, let alone each other. E.G. In Lost, Foxtrot gave Purple his tail to shake instead of his hand.
    • This is how Red realized that Blue felt something for Ilk when he caught him hugging her, which is the Sobrekt equivalent of a first kiss.
  • Healing Factor: Their body can regenerate lost limbs and tissue, but unlike Ilk, they need a special gel for minor and major wounds alike.
  • History with Celebrity: With Zim, who is a celebrity amongst the Sobrekt.
  • Inspired by...: Their namesake Raptor Squad from JurassicWorld. Echo and Blue even have their names unchanged, though the latter is shown as a male.
  • Interspecies Friendship: They are on pretty neutral terms with the Irken Empire, and are particularly close to Ilk's family due to their experiences in Hoth.
  • Knife Nut: All of the Raptor squad wields melee combat weapons.
  • Ninjas: From their attires and combat style, and being kryvtors, they have great agility, stamina and are skilled in ninjutsu.
  • Sibling Team: Though not related by blood, it's evident they consider each other as brethren and packmates.
  • The Fettered: They are honorable and rarely resort to underhanded methods to achieve anything, if at all. Instead of outright killing the Tallest and the Invaders after they crashlanded on Hoth to rescue Lena and Ilk, they merely tied them up.
    • Additionally, Blue was willing to hunt for the Irkens to make up for Fury eating their ration of snacks.
  • The Smurfette Principle: There's only one female, Echo.
  • Undying Loyalty: The Raptor Squad are willing to risk their lives for each other.

    Blue Cobalk 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/blue_by_ladyanaconda_dcrk4ri_pre.jpg
Blue's Reference Chart

Leader of the Raptor Squuad. Blue is a hard-working, loyal but serious kryvtor who eventually becomes Ilk's love interest.

  • Battle Couple: With Ilk.
  • Benevolent Boss: He's a good leader who takes his teammates' opinion into account and thinks about their welfare.

  • Determinator: Be sure that he would move mountains or die trying to protect those precious to him or achieve his goals.
  • Disappeared Dad: Blue never met his father because he left on a mission to assassinate the Tallest and never returned.

Masouri

Pilot, mechanic and owner of the Ibris. Has a crush on Echo. Just don't tell her, okay?

  • Adventurer Outfit: Unlike his fellow kryvtors, his main outfit includes an orange scarf, black gloves, goggles and a leather waistband.
  • Blind Without 'Em: He's never mentioned to remove his goggles, so it's implied he can't see without them.
  • Casanova Wannabe: He has a crush on Echo, but so far he's failed to catch her interest.

  • The Precious, Precious Car: He adores the Ibris and he's not afraid to show it, particularly in Lost, where he wept after the crashland left it in a deplorable state, and then got mad whenever Iraa claimed it as his ship.
  • The Smart Guy: Of the Raptor Squad, he's the most intelligent and would rather resort to logic.
  • Watch the Paint Job: He absolutely detests when anyone makes a scratch on the Ibris, as shown in Lost.

  • Action Girl: She's usually the first to go straight into battle, and wil
  • Bald Women: Female kryvtors don't have the feather crest males have, so she's technically bald.
  • Bound and Gagged: In Lost, she got this treatment during the climax, though it didn't last long as Ilk's party soon freed her.
  • Damsel in Distress: Usually averted, as she's a capable warrior and doesn't need anyone to save her. The only exception happens during Lost, as mentioned above.

  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: In Lost, she acts openly hostile and distrustful of the Irkens. By the time of Indokani, she was warmed up to them considerably and is even willing to share a table with the Irken Invaders.
  • Tough Love: Her definition of 'showing affection' is giving you a smack on the shoulder or the back of your head.
  • Women Are Wiser: Played with. She's often shown as the more serious and mature of her entire squad, but she's also the most reckless and aggressive.

  • Afraid of Needles:
  • Captain Obvious: Has a habit of pointing out the obvious, often to spite others. In his first appearance, after Captain uses a proverb about patience (Don't go after the Azelle, let the azelle come to you), Foxtrot points out that kryvtors do chase after their prey

  • Nerves of Steel: Foxtrot never loses his cool throughout Lost, and was cool-headed enough to make a temporary truce with Purple after they were taken captive by the Hothians.

  • Jerkass: To everyone except the Tallest and Ilk. Somewhat toned down with Lena and the Sobrekt.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_inline_psftg8g92p1sx9asa_540.jpg
Cheesecake

Introduced in Lost, Cheesecake is Purple's pet indokuro, and after Zim, the main source of Red's headaches on the Massive. Don't be fooled by his scary appearence. He's a dog trapped in an monster's body... most of the time.

  • All Animals Are Dogs: his behavior is very much like a dog's.

  • Badass Adorable: He's scary, but cute.

  • Deuteragonist: in Indokani.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Lizard.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: Cheesecake doesn't exactly sound intimidating for an indokuro.
  • Hates Being Touched: only lets Purple and a few people touch him, anyone else gets a nasty bite.
    • In a later chapter, he nearly bites Purple's hand when the latter tries to stop him from fighting for a meal with Cougar and Panther.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: He goes nuts when he sees medical drones, as they'd put needles in him when he was a hatchling. He also hates when anyone tries to hurt Purple.
  • Imprinting: During his first appearance in Lost, Purple was the first living thing he saw when he hatched.
  • Incompetent Guard Animal: Cheesecake was supposed to be studied as a military asset for the Irken Empire, but Purple's pampering has made him lazy, overweight, distracted and quite dumb.
  • It Can Think: He might not be very intelligent, but he's certainly smart enough for an indokuro.
  • Loyal Animal Companion: to Purple.
  • Malicious Misnaming: Red only refers to him as lizard.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: to Purple.
  • Odd Name Out: He's the only indokuro with a non-threatening name. While other names such as 'Fury', 'Panther', or 'Maugrim' are intimidating and fitting for an indokuro, 'Cheesecake' sounds silly.
  • Original Character.
  • A Pet Into The Wild: he's put with Fury's pack in a wild environment so he can learn to behave like his own species and awaken his aggressive instincts, which are vital for the fight against Maugrim.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: As a hatchling he was adorably. Now, not so much.
  • Running on All Fours: He mostly moves like this, as he never learned how to run on his hind legs.
  • Stronger with Age: As an adult, he's nearly the same size as Fury, so it's implied he's as strong as him.
  • Sweet Tooth: He loves doughnuts and snacks, as Purple mostly fed him with this. This diminished after tasting meat for the first time.
  • Toilet Humor: He uses Red's carpet as his evacuating place, which is one of the main reasons Red dislikes him so much.
  • The Nose Knows: Being an indokuro, he can track down people or animals through smell, though in his case he needs some training to polish it.
  • Troublemaking New Pet: due to being untrained and undisciplined, Cheesecake shows typical pet misbehaviors such as aggression, severe separation anxiety, overweight and evacuates anywhere.
  • Undying Loyalty: despite growing more wild, Cheesecake remains completely loyal to Purple.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: As a hatchling and before being put with a pack of indokuros, he was openly affectionate and playful. When Purple visits him some time later, he's grown more physically distant, lost his taste for snacks and gained an aggressive touch, shown when he snaps at Purple for trying to interfere with an argument with the other indokuros.
