     The Main Character 

Kenji Johnson

'"[[Quote To Go Hero]]"'

A young man who goes to live with his grandfather, Tensai Shiro, after his parents die tragically in a house fire. This brought him into contact with Tensai's time travel project and the Tenshi.

  • Future Foil: Though he's the Team Normal in the present day, multiple versions of the future indicate that he's likely to become a professor who advances the understanding of time travel and its effects on living tissue by leaps and bounds. In Time Tenshi 2, Chrontek build their Quantum Guards and enact their plan based on his research.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: When he's finally given his own weapon in Time Tenshi 2, it's a shield.
  • Non-Action Guy: Though he gets involved in missions once it's determined that he can travel through time without side effects, he doesn't do much fighting.
  • The Watson: Serving as an Audience Surrogate, he's the only member of the team without any advanced scientific education.

     Time Tenshi 

TIME TENSHI:

The girls charged with exploring time and protecting it from outside interference. This consequently puts them in a lot of danger, but while they've definitely been put in some dangerous situations, they've always managed to come out on top. So far...

Tropes For The Time Tenshi As A Whole:

  • Action Girl: All of them are capable combatants, dipping into Badass Bookworm as well since they were originally hired for their scientific prowess.
  • Breast Expansion: One of the side-effects of using the Time Window

The Time Tenshi's roster includes:

Rose

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

The de facto field commander of the Time Tenshi. An Englishwoman of considerable intelligence and maturity, Rose is very knowledgeable when it comes to studies of the brain and chemistry. She's also a highly skilled swordswoman, and can be counted on to keep a level head in most situations. First appears in the Time Tenshi.

  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: Subverted. The weapons the Time Tenshi use are designed to be non-lethal, sending their foes back to their own times rather than causing permanent injury. As a result, Rose's sword is actually quite dull.
  • Chainmail Bikini: Rose's Time Suit consists of this.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Has blond hair, and is one of the most vocal proponents for trying to make peace with Chrontek once she finds out what their goal is.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Fitting, given Rose's role as field commander of the Time Tenshi.
  • Heterochromia: Has one gold eye and one green eye.
  • The Kirk: Mediates between Kyo's bubbly idealism and Tessa's gruff pragmatism.
  • Spot of Tea: Enjoys these between missions.

Kyo

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

The medical specialist of the Time Tenshi, Kyo often seems younger than her actual age. Hailing from Japan, she loves going back in time and fighting the good fight. Almost as much as she likes playing video games and playing pranks on the others. First appears in Time Tenshi.

  • A-Cup Angst: Used to suffer from this.
  • The Ditz: While not stupid, Kyo is definitely more prone to immature antics than the other girls. Tessa even refers to her by this trope's name.
  • French Maid Outfit: Kyo's Time Suit is an incredibly revealing version of this trope. The first two games have her wearing only the lingerie of such an outfit!
  • Leeroy Jenkins: By far the most impulsive member of the team to the point where trusting her to trigger the failsafes at the end of the second game backfires spectacularly and leads to the Bad End.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: The only one on the team who actively enjoys the side-effects of time travel, and she's very flirtatious about it.
  • The Medic: Serves this role in the team.
  • The McCoy: The most emotional and idealistic of the trio, and the most likely to Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Kyo enjoys fondling the breasts of the other girls or shoving her own breasts against them or Kenji. Something that does not make Tessa happy...
  • Whip It Good: Kyo's primary weapon is a feather duster that transforms into a whip.

Tessa

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

A computer specialist and programmer, Tessa is also a keen fitness enthusiast and is frequently found working out in the lab's gym. Her cute appearance and clothing are very deceiving, as she's a devout tomboy and a skilled fighter in her own right. She's also extremely loyal to Tensai. First appears in the Time Tenshi 2.

  • Berserk Button: Whatever you do, do not call Tessa "cute". Not unless you want her to go off like a bomb in your face.
  • Boobs of Steel: Downplayed, but while Rose, Kyo and Michelle all grew into their current base sizes through repeated exposure to chronal energy, Tessa, the most physically fit Tenshi, just naturally started out as voluptuous as the others.
  • Does Not Know Her Own Strength: Tessa is easily the strongest of the group. Unfortunately, because of her eagerness and energetic nature, that sometimes results in things such as friendly pats on the backs knocking people to the floor.
  • Epic Flail: Her weapons are a pair of pom-poms that transform into electrified morningstars.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Is revealed to be the one that first designed QT.33, Beth's Robot Buddy.
  • Genre Savvy: Tessa is the first to reprimand someone for saying something that might "jinx them". She's also fully aware that splitting up in enemy territory is a bad idea, and that her life seems to follow the rules of a "low-brow hentai manga". She does it to the point of Leaning on the Fourth Wall.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Tessa is brash, hotheaded, and can throw insults around with the best of them when she loses her temper. But that doesn't mean she doesn't care, and will even save her enemies if their lives are on the line.
  • The Nicknamer: Tessa calls Kenji "Ken", Kyo "the ditz", and Neferu-re things like "The Royal Pain in the Tut".
  • Pom-Pom Girl: Tessa's Time Suit is a cheerleader outfit, made for her by Rose and Kyo. Unfortunately, no one told them that, while Tessa is a former cheerleader, she was forced to be one by her mother. And she absolutely hated it!
  • The Spock: The most pragmatic of the Tenshi. While she comes across as cynical and abrasive, her decisions are based on what she thinks is the most direct path to the greatest good.
  • Stage Mom: Tessa's mother, who was obsessed with making sure that Tessa became a cheerleader. She even pressured Tessa to get a boob job so that she'd have a better chance of becoming one. Which is the reason that Tessa absolutely hates being a cheerleader and being referred to as being cute.
  • The Worf Effect: Gets hit with this in Time Tenshi Paradox when she gets knocked out by Cynthia's lightning gun, which demonstrates how much better Beth's future-built equipment is when she takes a shot from the same weapon without flinching.

Beth

'"I am Tenshi Beth of 3 Division, Expedition Unit. There's no time to explain further.'''

A member of the Time Tenshi from the distant future, she appears in the present-day Time Lab claiming to have vital information. She bears a striking resemblance to Rose. First appears in Time Tenshi Paradox.

     Time Lab Personnel 

TIME LAB PERSONNEL:

These are the characters that generally stay in the Time Window lab and support the Time Tenshi remotely. Whether by monitoring the situation and keeping them apprised as to potential dangers or by building various tools and more to help them out.

The Lab Personnel includes:

Tensai Shiro

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

The the brains behind the Time Window. Tensai has the strongest sense of responsibility in regards to its use and the potential hazards of it falling into the wrong hands. He's also the grandfather of the protagonist Kenji. First appears in the Time Tenshi.

  • Properly Paranoid: Tensai is extremely cautious when it comes to the Time Window, particularly of what could happen if his invention were to fall into the wrong hands. When Princess Neferu-re acquires the power granted by the Time Window, we see how justified Tensai was in his fears.

Michelle

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

The Commander and Operations Manager of the lab and Tensai's primary assistant, Michelle oversees the Time Tenshi's missions in the past. Stern and sometimes humorless, she nonetheless cares about Kenji, Tensai, and the others. First appears in Time Tenshi.

  • D-Cup Distress: Comes down with this after being freed from the Time Window at the end of Time Tenshi 2.
  • Mission Control: Primarily functions in this role.
  • The Mole: In the first game, she collaborated with Bunni and Mizuki behind Tensai's back to help them alter the Bad Future.

     Chrontek 

CHRONTEK:

A team of time-travelers from the future, a world that has been rendered a barren wasteland where cities have been left to waste and people are fighting just to stay alive. Their goal is to rewrite history to undo the calamities that destroyed their time.

Tropes For Chrontek As A Whole:

  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Courtesy of Princess Neferu-re in Time Tenshi 2.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: While they can be reckless in their mission, the fact remains that they're doing what they feel to be best for their world and future.

Chrontek's roster includes:

Bunni

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

A tall and flirtatious woman who prefers to fight using her long legs to deliver powerful kicks and choke holds. Though she tends to dress like a Vegas-style bunny girl, failing to take her seriously in a fight is a serious mistake. First appears in the Time Tenshi.

Mizuki

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

A secretive ninja who's mastered many arts of stealth and war, Mizuki is far more serious than her partner Bunny. First appears in Time Tenshi.

  • The Fatalist: When declaring that she has no malice for their foes, Mizuki tends to state that they're all bound to "the chains of fate".

     Other Villains 

OTHER VILLAINS:

Princess Neferu-re

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

An enigmatic princess from ancient Egypt with an authoritative personality. She uses incredible powers gained from the forces of time in her efforts to defeat the Time Tenshi and transform the world into a place of her own selfish design. First appears in the Time Tenshi 2.

  • The Chessmaster: Helped in no small part by her ability to know where all the "pieces" are likely to be.
  • The Dreaded: Princess Neferu-re has apparently become this in the wake of Time Tenshi 2. Kenji even pleads others not to mention her name.
  • Evil Genius: Learned English mere days after being taken from her time by Bunni and Mizuki and just as easily figured out how to twist their Causality Loop plan to grant herself absolute power.
  • It's All About Me: She's willing to help Bunni and Mizuki save their ruined world by turning it into a paradise... it's just that her vision of paradise is one in which she rules eternally over a humanity that doesn't even have the capacity to question her. As Tessa puts it, anyone who builds a city full of statues of themselves is bad news.
  • Knight of Cerebus: From the moment she's revealed as a villain, Princess Neferu-re's every appearance ups the drama and the danger. Not only does she hand the Time Tenshi their most brutal defeat thus far in their very first battle, but she comes within a hairsbreadth of trapping the Earth outside of time forever.
  • Near-Villain Victory: Came very close to taking over the world, and only failed because the effort of re-writing reality into her desired form kept her from using her otherwise unbeatable foresight, so she didn't know about the Time Window's failsafe mechanism until the Tenshi activated it.
  • The Omniscient: Thanks to being abducted by Ancient Astronauts in her youth, she gained the ability to perceive other timelines and potential futures.
  • Reality Warper: Neferu-re has limited reality-warping powers via chronal crystals. She becomes capable of rewriting all of time and space in the climax of Time Tenshi 2.
  • Touched by Vorlons: Implied to be the source of her powers, but the specific details are left unknown.

Cynthia

'"Coming up with new trinkets - and studying how best to perfect them - really does pose quite a fascinating challenge."'

A time-traveling inventor of unknown origin. All that is known is that she wields high-tech weaponry and has no apparent connection to Chrontek. First appears in Time Tenshi Paradox.
