Pronimo: In the very beginning it was split up with Zymot having half and the Kalbu-fu the other half. Hugh was able to combine the two together to form Pronimo in the invasion of Kalbu-fu. Later when Hugh was killed, Zed's mother took Pronimo. She then lost it to Jeem, who gave it to Task Country's savior, Mirette. After being unable to control Tasker, Noa took it from her.
Sachira: Noa's key spirit that he received from a group of Nomads, shortly after entering the world. Sachira was taken by Mirette so she could awaken Tasker, but when Mirette couldn't control Tasker, Noa took back Sachira.
Menardi: Neotopia's key spirit. It was hidden under the statue being built as a symbol of power and discipline at Neotopia, but when Neotopia fell under Task's control, it awoke, and was obtained by Sara, Zed's mother. Later, Sara lost Menardi to Jeem. Jeem gave it to Mirette to summon Tasker, but when she failed to satisfy Tasker's desire for a strong host, Noa took it.
Jumamis: Task's key spirit, which remained dormant in Task's savior, Mirette, until all other key spirits were in the vicinity. When Mirette failed to summon Tasker, Noa took it from her.
Shadin: Key spirit of the Seekers. Sagiri was given Shadin when she returned to the Seekers, as she was viewed as the savior. She gave Shadin to Zed in order to help him find Noa. Later, Jeem took it from Zed and gave it to Mirette. When Mirette failed to summon Tasker, Noa took Shadin from her.
Tasker: In the anime, Tasker is the result of the 6 Key Spirits brought together. Tasker is said to be the power that created and can destroy the world and it has the ability to control all spirits (Ex-Machina was the only spirit that couldn't be controlled by Tasker). Tasker required to merge with the true savior which appeared to be Zed (Zed, Mirette, Noa, and Sagiri are considered saviors because they were chosen by key spirits) and its goal ended up being to create a world that only included spirits. Tasker was stopped when Jiko appeared in Zed's conscience which later led to Zed separating Amil Gaoul and himself from Tasker. When Amil Gaoul was separated, Tasker was thrown off balance and was defeated. Tasker's abilities consist of close combat fighting, the manipulation of other spirits, using the original 6 key spirit's abilities, and unleashing meteor showers to destroy the land.
After learning she was from Tusk (due to the sharp protrusions on her shoulders), Roya left Templer to find her parents. After arriving in Tusk, she discovered that her father was a Tusk leader. However, her father was a paranoid and unstable man, who believed that Roya will kill him because of a prophecy. As a result, he attempts to have Roya executed. It is also at this time that Roya encounters her mother, who saved Roya when she was a child, but died in the process. Before her death, she transferred her soul into her killer in order to protect Roya, resulting in the killer and the mother sharing a body. Zed tracks Roya down and, with the help of Ginga, manages to rescue her, but not before the death of both her parents.
Later, Roya would accompany Zed and Robès to the Neotopian Joust to represent Templer. Despite some difficulty, she manages to win her first fight, but is seriously wounded. While recovering in the hospital, she has a dream of her mother, and finally decides which 'path' she wishes to lead her life by; to help others. It is at this time that she acquires the 'healing shard'. She then proceeds to help heal other patients in the hospital. However, under Neotopia's totalitarian rules, Roya is arrested for healing people without a license to practice medicine. As with all those that break 'any' rule of Neotopia, Roya is sentenced to death, but is saved by Zed before the execution is complete.
After Zed was kidnapped by Neotopia, Roya left to find him and found herself in the middle of the invasion by Zymot and Tusk's forces. She managed to find him and later attempted to heal Hairam after he ran himself through with his own sword, but ultimately was unable to help him. She accompanies Zed and Ginga back to Ulbaks to stop Tusk's invasion of the small nation. Zicco has hinted that even though Roya has chosen 'her' path, she may be the only one capable of giving Zed the 'strength' to fulfill his own destiny.
After Zed's confrontation with his mother, Sara, Roya still shows a deep attachment to Zed and helps him escape from prison after he is put there by Zicco. Roya is also strongly protective of Sagiri, especially when the little girl comes to Templer to escape the Seekers. When Zed and Sagiri later leave with the Seekers on their flying ship, Roya is distressed by the feeling that their parting may be the last time she ever sees Zed again. Shortly afterwards, Roya begins working with a doctor, using her healing shards to help patients. While she seems to have finally found happiness, the uncertainty of Zed's current whereabouts still troubles her greatly.
After learning that Zicco is going to Tusk to look for Zed, Roya begs him to take her with him. Roya tells him that she has to be by Zed's side to help him. Zicco agrees and they both fly to Tusk on Zicco's spirit, Pyron. They find Zed and learn about what has happened in Tusk concerning the key spirits. Roya is present when Zed's mother, Sara, reappears. Despite her protest, Zed goes off with his mother saying he'll be back. Later, Sara emerges wielding Amil Gaoul, and fights Zicco. Roya searches for Zed and asks him why he gave up his key spirit. When Zed angrily refuses to answer, Roya berates him, saying that he still has a mother, unlike her, and that Sara can still be saved.
As they leave to stop Sara, Zed is confronted by Deucem and Zed tells Roya to leave while he deals with the crazed Tuskan. Roya arrives as Zicco is being defeated by Sara, but witnesses the key spirit reject her. Sara collapses and Roya cradles her as she dies. Before finally passing away, Sara gives her Amil Gaoul's shard and whispers some words to her. Moments later, Zed arrives, Roya gives him back the key spirit, and also gives Zed the final words of his mother.
In the end, she sees Zed leave with Amil Goual. Later, back in Templer, she's seen taking Noa to the hill that Zed used to always look out from.
As seen very early on within the anime, Zico possesses a very strong spirit (due to his own strong will) that seems to want to be captured by the military of Zymot. His Spirit is on a power level with Rambos (Zeds second Spirit). Zico's spirit is a large red dragon that has many curves on its body, in which it regularly breathes large amounts of fire to completely destroy its opponents.
Zico often stresses caution and observation over rash action, and is quick to provide 'fatherly' advise to both Roya and Zed when they are experiencing periods of doubt. He was a friend of Neotopia's ruler, Hairam, and was distressed to see how Hairam had transformed Neotopia into a harsh and consequencios state. Conversations between the two seemed to reveal that once Hairam was much like Zico, but had become radical later in life.
Recent events have revealed that Zico was not always the kind and patient man he is now. Revelations about Zico's past have surfaced recently since the appearance of Zed's mother, Sara. It became obvious that Sara hated Zico, and Zico was hiding something that was of great pain to him. Zico later revealed to Zed that Amil Gaoul had once been the guardian spirit of Templer but no one could wield him, not even Zico. To ensure Templer's survival, Zico had begun an aggressive campaign to find a shard caster for the key spirit. This appears to have gone on for some time till Zicco discovered that Amil Gaoul had chosen someone else. Zico had been shown a vision of Zed's young mother, pregnant with Zed.
Zico traveled to Calm and abducted Zed's mother, Sara, and took her back to Templer where she was forcefully turned into a shard caster and received Amil Gaoul's shard. Zico then rigorously trained Sara to one day wield the spirit, often working Sara so hard she would collapse at night from fatigue and pain. Later, Zico defended Templer from an invasion by Zymot. It was during this battle that Sara tried to call out Amil Gaoul, and when he appeared he abandoned Sara and left. Realizing that Sara was not the chosen one, Jiko turned his back on Sara and told her to go back to Calm.
After meeting Zed, Jiko came to the realization that he had made a mistake thinking Sara was the chosen vessel of Amil Gaoul. It was not Sara who was chosen, but her unborn child, Zed, growing in her womb, who was the chosen one. When Zed attempts to follow his mother, Jiko intervenes and blocks his path. After exchanging angry words, Jiko and Zed battle each other, and Jiko knocks Zed unconscious with a swift blow to the gut. He then locks Zed up in a cell. After Zed awakens, Jiko tries to explain that Sara has been possessed by the 'demon' within Amil Gaoul. As he was responsible for making her a shard caster, it is his responsibility to stop her rampage.
Jiko sets out on Pyron searching for Sara and finds her some time later in the act of absorbing more life force energy. A battle ensues and Jiko's spirit soon faces off against Sara's Key Spirits, Monardi and Pronimo. However, Pyron is able to not only stand up to the two key spirits, but actually pushes them back. Jiko explains to the stunned Sara that she could never control a key spirit, and as such she can't truly bring out Monardi and Pronimo's power. Just as he begins to gain the upper hand, Sagiri appears and Sara grabs the little girl to use as a human shield. Unable to attack, Jiko can only defend against Sara's merciless shard attacks. Eventually Jiko is overpowered and collapses.
Some time after, Zed leaves with the Seekers, Jiko and the other sages of Templer sense a power surge from Tusk. Believing it has something to do with Zed, Jiko leaves to investigate. Roya confronts him and convinces him to let her go along. They fly to Tusk on Pyron and begin searching for him. As they separate, Roya is attacked by Sara, but Jiko repels her attacks. Sara attempts to fight, but is so weak she can't even cast a shard. Jiko tells her that in her condition, trying to wield Amil Gaoul would be fatal. Sara comments that she doesn't care and flees.
Jiko and Roya then locate Zed and learn about the events surrounding Noa, Mirette, and the strange black spirit. Shortly afterwards, Zed goes off with his mother, Sara. Later, Sara re-emerges with Amil Gaoul's shard and Jiko confronts her demanding the return of the key spirit. Sara summons Amil Gaoul and battles Jiko's Pyron. Jiko's spirit is no match for Amil Gaoul and Jiko collapses to his knees. Before Sara can finish the fight, however, her body is overcome by the stress of wielding Amil Gaoul and collapses. Roya arrives and holds Sara as she dies. Jiko can only look on in sorrow, unable to help her.
During Noa and Zed's final battle, he ordered Roya not to interfere with their battle. It's revealed that he, too, wanted to see Tasker resurrected. Unfortunately, he was horrified over the fact that the ultimate power he sought was destroying the world. When Tasker merges with Zed, and Tasker controls all the spirits, he saves Roya from Afkeruru, but subsequently dies in the process. He then appears as a spirit within Tasker to talk with Zed. He ultimately persuaded Zed to come to his senses when he reminded him of how his mother ended up dead after seeking power. Zicco is never heard from again...
His name and mansion "Redondo House" all inherited from his father before him Altajid Redondo. He is a princely figure living in Templer. He recently became the Shard Champion after winning the Shard Casters tournament. For fun he wears a mask, and under the name "No Face", likes to rob the townspeople of their riches. He wishes to know who is stronger between Dumas and himself, but was denied the chance when Dumas let Zed fight in his place against Robès in the tournament. Robès draws his Shards from a yellow crystal on his right hand. His weapon is yellow and resembles a rapier. It uses two Shards, placed in the hilt of his weapon. His Spirit, , resembles a mushroom-like ballerina, and slashes down foes with its arms. It has also been shown that Belladonna is capable of flight. In episode 13, it is revealed that Robès can use water shards as well as lightning shards.
In the end, he was disappointed to hear that Zed, his potential rival, had left.
A baker by trade and a former apprentice to Dumas. He is a friend of Roya and Zed. He is given Dumas' spirit after Dumas was killed and had serious difficulty controlling it. He seems to be romantically interested in Pino, a maid of Robès.
Mikki seems to be a childhood friend of Roya. Mikki makes his first appearance in episode 2, in which he elaborates on his will to live up to the expectations of his sensei, Dumas. Mikki works hard every day within a field-like area, accomplishing simple tasks with Dumas. After Dumas was forced to be rid of his house, Mikki takes him to live in his family's abandoned house with Zed and Roya. This is when Mikki decides to start baking unique style bread as his new occupation, as to attain money. Other than baking bread, Miki attempts to regularly become stronger as a Shard Caster, but seems to always fail in this endeavour due to having a kind and gentle heart. After Mikki later hears of Dumas' death, he seems to go insane. He afterwards kept continuously striving for more power as to quell his suffering about how he could have been able to save Dumas if he had been stronger at the time. This insanity had been truly caused when Robès had handed Mikki Dumas's spirit, which seems to be a possessing spirit that will take over its user if they happen not to be strong willed. This seems to be a primary factor within the ways of the spirit. Mikki later recovers from this, and continues to sell a large quantity of bread as his occupation afterwards.
Later, Mikki decides to give up shardcasting and devote all his time to baking. He admits that he has more skill at business than fighting. As if to reinforce this notion, Mikki's bakery has become so popular in Templer that he has recently opened a branch store. It is also learned that Pino and another of Robès maids have quit their job at Rhobes' mansion and are now working for Mikki full-time.
Mikki's Spirit: Mikki's spirit's name is Arumadoru. It never seems to accomplish anything within the series due to being rather undisciplined, hence which reflects Mikki's weak will. Mikki had attempted to use this spirit when training with Roya, along with when battling at the Joust tournament. He also has Slaguna, Dumas' old spirit which Robes gave to him as a memento, but never used it in any battles other than when he was controlled by it.
Templer's previous Shard Champion, a title given to the strongest Shard Caster in the country. Even though he held the prestigious title, he works as a farmer. He also, however, had turned the basement of his house into a hospital for those of the country of Zymot who have been cast into exile, but when they started attacking the castle he helped to defend it against them. Dumas draws his Shards from an aqua-colored crystal on his right shoulder. His weapon is a brownish-orange and is about twice the width of Zed's sword. His shard element is earth. It requires six Shards to activate. His Spirit Suraguna (Slugna/Slagna) resembles a knight and fights with a weapon that's something of a cross between a lance and a double-bladed sword.
Dumas bears a cross-like mark on his left palm, an inherited symbol of servitude that has run in his family for generations. He is obsessed with changing this 'destiny', and sought to do so by becoming the Shard Champion. To his chagrin, however, all that came with the title of Shard Champion was, "useless honor" and being the first person to call when trouble came about, with absolutely no change in his station or position. Obsession turned to madness, and he became the Zymot usurpers' spy, the Joker, in exchange for marriage to Princess Rebecca, and thus by extension king of Zymot.
Hugh, however, had no intention of honoring his bargin with Dumas, and intended to have him and a captured Robès, kill each other off. The duel was more or less even (though Suraguna defeated Belladonna) until Zed showed up. Armed with a new sword and his more controllable spirit, Rambos, Zed easily defeated Dumas. Afterwards, Gláucio executed the exhausted Dumas by shocking and strangling him with his flail and throwing him into the fire pits surrounding the Zymot Jousting ring.
A princess who is the last surviving member of the Zymot royal family. Seeing Zed's powerful spirit, she asks for his help to regain her country.
Rebecca, a beautiful young girl, is the princess of Zymot. After Hugh had lusted to attain the power of the key spirits, he attempted to steal one of these key spirits which was in the hands of Rebecca's father, who had been the king of Zymot. Before the supposed death of the king, however, he placed the spirit within the crest on Rebecca's head. Rebecca is then continuously saved by her retainer, Elda, at many times after being captured by Hugh. At one time, after being saved, she stayed with Zed and Roya at their house. After she finds out that Zed wields the mighty Amil Gaoul, she immediately asks Zed to accompany her to Zymot, as to serve amongst her established defense against Hugh.
Hugh eventually gets his hands on her and tricks Dumas into thinking that he can become the new king of Zymot if he is to marry her. Rebecca soon finds out that her father was truly alive, because only he can release the spirit from Rebecca's forehead. After this objective was completed, Hugh once again kills Rebecca's father and let's Rebecca do whatever she wants, since she became useless to him. Rebecca then travelled into the desert area, blurting the words that she would have liked to be reborn as a bird, as to be free of her misery.
After a while, Rebecca is seen again, in which she is "reborn" as a warrior, and vows ultimate revenge against Hugh, even to the extent that she is now somewhat away from sanity. To achieve her goal of revenge, she allies with the people of Kalbu-fu as a primary force against Zymot, which is mainly because she had heard that Zymot was planning on launching an attack against that area. Zed and Roya soon assist Rebecca, in which they then end up battling against many soldiers of Zymot. After Rebecca spots Hugh, she attempts to run after him, but is soon stopped by Elmeida. A while after this, Rebecca battles relentlessly against Elmeida. However, Rebecca, who jumps in the way as to save one of her fellow people of Kalbu-fu, is stabbed by Elmeida's blade. After Zymot retreats, Rebecca lays on her bed for the last time. She utters how she now feels truly free of her inner hatred, in which she then dies in peace, without any level of regret.
Rebbecca's Spirit - Rebeccas spirit is a lightning type spirit called Ariel. Her main attacks are to attack with lightning from its arms. Ariel can also be controlled remotely even if Rebecca is far away from Ariel.
A member of the rebel army that is fighting against those who have overthrown the Zymot Monarchy. He, however, is only seeking power for himself. He is killed by Graujio after seeking a reward from the Zymot usurpers for being the one who persuaded to get Rebecca to return.
The head of the three Zymot Usurpers. He wears a mask over his mouth until Amil Gaoul (the Key Spirit he stole from Zed) rejects him. He has a strict personality, but acts somewhat insane after he's rejected by Amil Gaoul. He is the previous owner of the Key Spirit, Pronimo, later stolen by Sara after Hugh's defeat.
Hugh's first appearance was in episode 9, in which he's shown next to his two primary officers, Graujio and Elmeida. He used Dumas as a spy, manipulating Dumas in believing he will become the next king of Zymot by marrying Rebecca.
At an earlier age, Hugh acted as the primary retainer under Rebecca's father, who was the king of Zymot at the time. One day, however, Hugh had attempted to kill him, which was when the king placed his half key spirit into Rebecca's forehead. Due to this fact, Hugh continuously captured Rebecca and later convinced Rebecca's father, whom he had let live, that he would marry Rebecca and become the new king of Zymot. This is only a trick, however, in order to make Rebecca's father release the shard within her head. After Hugh receives the shard, he kills Rebecca's father and casts her away, free to do whatever she wishes. After this event, Hugh became the new King of Zymot, and lusts to obtain every key spirit he can get his hands on; this is Hugh's true ambition.
Hugh then furthers his influence by gaining the trust of many major figures within Tusk. After Hugh's campaign in the Kalbu-fu region, he meets up with Zed and finally realizes that he has Amil Gaoul in his possession. Hugh flees after he realizes that his key spirit Pronimo (becomes whole after fusing with the fire half) cannot stand against Amil Gaoul. After Roya was to be sacrificed at a different time by the creatures of Tusk, Hugh takes glimpse of Noa's key spirit along with Zed's, which makes his ambition burn even stronger. Hugh later retreats and continues to elaborate on his superiority within the series.
Hugh later participated in the Neotopian Joust, disguised as a representative of Tusk. After Zed was 'defeated' by Noa and taken to a hospital to recover, Hugh crept into his room at night and stole Amil Gaoul. The next day, Hugh, still in disguise, faced off against Noa in the final match of the Joust. During the battle, Noa knocked off Hugh's helmet revealing his true identity. At this point, Hugh summoned Pronimo to battle against Sachira, but then summoned Amil Gaoul to double-team Noa. Just when it seemed that Noa was defeated, Hugh was overcome with intense pain and regurgitated Amil Gaoul's shard. Noa, mentioned that Amil Gaoul had rejected Hugh, and the pain he was feeling was his punishment. Before he could be captured, Hugh teleported away, back to Zymot.
After returning to Zymot, Hugh stopped wearing his mask and revealed his true face, a menacing, devilish visage. It seems that the after-effects of having Amil Gaoul have also twisted Hugh, making him slightly insane. He has recently begun an invasion of Neotopia along with an army of Tusk beastmen.
Zed hits Hugh with a shard explosive and then stabs him through the torso. Pronimo and Amil Gaoul return to their owners as Hugh drops dead, revealing a face clothed once again.
The female member of the three Zymot leaders who wears a blindfold over her eyes. Elmeida is the only Zymot Usurper that is still alive. She was one of two supreme commanders of Zymot that served under Hugh, the last King of Zymot. Elmeida typically wears the blindfold on her face to conceal the crystal from which she draws her shards. She is seen on multiple occasions eating snails. It also seems that Elmeida has a rather arrogant personality and is rather merciless in her qualities.
She made her first true appearance in episode 10 when she and Graujio had fought against the shard casters from Templer that had invaded their territory. Elmeida is also the one to thank for retrieving Rebecca many times. She is later sent as the head commander when attacking the area of Kalbu-fu. While at this area, she duels against Rebecca, whom she later kills by stabbing her with her blade. After she finished off Rebecca, Elmeida retreats under Hugh's orders.
In the end, she stays as the second-in-command of Zymot.
Elmeida's Spirit: Elmeida's spirit is a large winged monster that has a skull as its face called Zakua. Zakua has the ability of being able to extend the spike within its right eye to a large extent, which is used primarily to impale its enemies.
The child member of the three Zymot leaders. Despite being a child, his power is extraordinarily high. Graujio is assumed to be deceased, as Elmedia accuses Zed of killing him.
Graujio is a child with blonde hair that had been recruited by Hugh at a rather young age. Graujio served as one of the two main enforcers (the other consisting of Elmeida) under the command of Hugh. Graujio made his first appearance in episode 9, in which he unleashes his spirit to dispose of the left over allies that had failed in their mission. Graujio seems to favor duels when assisted by Elmeida. It also seems that Hugh favors Graujio when it comes to quickly cleaning up messes, such as when he finished off Dumas in episode 13. Graujio would afterwards have a 1-on-1 duel with Zed, however, Zed ends up defeating Graujio by attaching a certain explosive shard to his body. He was presumed dead after he fell into the fire pits of the jousting ring.
Graujio's Spirit: Graujio's spirit takes the appearance of a large monster, in which it can freely open its body (which seems to serve as a large jaw) for quick disposal style tactics. Graujio's spirit reappeared during the war with Neotopia, where Hugh was using multiple spirits in this form to sacrifice the Neotopian people.
Nudeu enters the Joust in Neotopia as one of the representatives from Zymot. He seemed like he was going to win his fight against Robès but was defeated.
He gets Robès drunk on wine after their match.
He was killed by Noa.
Nudeu's Spirit: Its name is Marakia. It has a bizarre appearance, and seems to be made of four connected blobs with a tail.
A young girl that had been a citizen of Neotopia since childhood. Throughout her childhood, Aisha would become friends with a boy by the name of Keith, along with Gale. Aisha and Keith would always want to remain independent in their actions - as to be void of the strict Neotopian rules, they would occasionally sit at night amongst glowing flowers that provide light to the sky, and hide out in their established stone monument. Gale, however, joined the military when told to, which changed his life to a high extent. Aisha later meets Noa, in which she and Keith treat them as their old friend, Gale. However, when Gale returns and relatively destroys the previous peaceful ways of Neotopia, Aisha is amongst a large conflict. After Gale is about to slash and kill Keith for destroying the newly established laws, Aisha jumped in the way and was fatally wounded. Aisha lives long enough to transport the terror stricken Noa out of Neotopia to a remote country.
He's Carter's son and childhood friends with Keith and Aisha. Though, due to some circumstances he became an obedient servant of Neotopia. After discovering that the village had not informed the Neotopian government of Noa's appearance, he kills his father and begins the destruction of his village, Lato. Gale seeks to completely change the ways of Neotopia in a far more irrational authoritative governmental leadership system. Gale later attempts to kill Noa after he had run away, which led to Aisha trying to stop him and he tried to slash her. He was killed in his battle with Keith.
One of the village youth (most notably the village that Noah was guest at, which's Neotopia) that attacked Noah. At first, he assumed that Noa was some enemy soldier, or spy, working for the government when he saw Noa looking at the monument at the cliff near the village he was staying at. His spirit is a centurion type of beast. While most people enlist in the Neotopian army as soon as possible, Keith rejects this way of life, seeming to only want to have fun. He fights with Gale after he wounds Aisha. Along with Gale, he was assumed to be dead, but turns up in Templer as a prisoner escaped from Neotopia. His wounds were healed by the government of Neotopia only so that he could later be executed for treason.
Zed and Roya are asked to escort him back to Neotopia. However, due to some circumstances during the shifting teleportation, Keith, Zed, and Roya end up in the land of Tusk. Noa, now indoctrinated into the laws of Neotopia, finally meets Zed in Tusk, and executes Keith by order of the government after Zed leaves.
Hairam's second in command and the one responsible for Noa being transported to Neotopia. She manipulated Noa into joining believing that the ultimates rules were the right form of justice. After witnessing the devastation of Neotopia by Hugh's forces, the fanatically loyal Diana 'rebels' against Hairam. The first factor in this change was Hairam's insistence that the people of Neotopia sacrifice themselves in battle, yet Hairam himself ran and hid from the enemy. The final straw was her anger at the impossibly heavy burden Hairam placed on Noa to be the 'savior' of Neotopia, a responsibility that was driving Noa to have a nervous breakdown. It has been revealed that Diana has a deep affection for Noa and wants to help him rebuild Neotopia. After a battle with Sara and a newly emerged key spirit, Monardi, Diana fell down a crevasse in the earth.
It is later learned that Diana survived the destruction of Neotopia, when she resurfaces in Tusk looking for Noa. She witnesses the aftermath of Noa and Zed's feud. When Noa absorbs five of the six key spirits, she watches him leave with a look of concern on her face. She then encounters Noa at a disclosed location, but is distraught over the fact that the Noa standing in front of her is no longer the one she knew. She later approaches Noa after he resurrects Tasker, pleading that he let go of the power. She momentarily had Noa reconsider until she was knocked out by the power of Tasker. Her unconscious body is last seen being carried by a revived Noa.
The only female of the Royal knights of Neotopia that enforces the utlmate rules. At first, she had a sort of rivalry with Noa, but begins to develop feelings for him. It was later revealed that her brother is Herrick and her real name is Chelsea. The rest of her family was banished to Ulbaks for breaking the ultimate rules. The only reason why she wasn't banished was because she had potential as a Shard Caster. Kira draws her Shards from a green crystal in her navel.
In the end, she stays in Neotopia, rebuilding the city after the destruction caused by the war.
The leader and founder of Neotopia, he enforced the Ultimate Rules with an iron fist, and seemed to have a past history with Templer's sage, Jiko. Zed and Roya were subjected to the ultimate rules during the Neotopian joust. Elmeida nearly assassinated Hairam, but Noa intervened to save his life. He strongly believed that Noa is a savior of Neotopia and the Ultimate Rules. Neotopians that were banished to Ulbaks (especially Herrick) hold a strong hatred towards Hairam. Hugh's army attacked Neotopia and managed to break the third wall surrounding the castle. All seemed lost at that point, and when faced with the murder of hostages and Hugh's demands for Hairam, Zed delivered Hairam to Hugh. Hugh offers to let him live for as long as it takes Hairam to murder the captives, but instead he chooses to kill himself. Roya attempts to heal Hairam, but is unable to do so. His last wish is for Jiko to watch over Noa and the Ultimate Rules.
A young and free-spirited Tuskan girl with a tragic past. Mirette was born with the Key Spirit, Jumamis, already inside her body. As such Mirette was dubbed the 'savior' of Tusk. Since the day of her birth, she has been isolated and confined to a small tower above the Tusk Palace, where she can be kept 'safe'. Though she has been visited by all of the four ministers, it is Gitra that is her primary guardian. She enjoys listening to the music that Gitra plays on a large pipe organ that she can hear from her room. Later, after expressing a desire to see a real sky, Morima gives her two 'move shards' that allows her to escape the castle. She explored the area around her, wide-eyed at all the things she has heard of, but never seen. She eventually encountered a man named Doruga, who showed her the insides of Tote's Cave, which resembles a night sky. Mirette was eventually found by Tusk soldiers in Gitra's care, but escapes again where she runs into Zed, who had just arrived in Tusk.
When Zed returns and reveals that he not only failed to get the other key spirits, but also lost his own, Mirette decides to return to the palace. She feels that Zed's failure is a sign that she can't escape her 'destiny'. Zed has a private moment with her and gets her to confess that she truly doesn't want to be a 'savior', but she also doesn't want to run anymore. Zed asks her to let him take her burden, but she runs off before giving him an answer. Wanting to see Doruga and the 'stars' again, she returns to Tote's Cave and finds Lord Doruga there. She is at first happy, but her joy then turns to horror as Doruga demands she give him her key spirit. Zed and Gitra arrive, but then Jeem and several squads of Tusk soldiers also arrive.
As a battle prepares to begin, Mirette's sorrow and shock at what's happening causes her own key spirit, Jumamis, to awaken and emerge. The spirit then draws all the other key shards to it and the shards revolve around in the air. Then all six key shards descend and enter Mirette's body. As the others look on, Mirette is surrounded by a black haze and a massive black spirit, with long gray wings covering its face, appears. Jeem says that the spirit is the true form of the combined key spirits, Tasker. Although, Mirette was unable to handle the resurrection of Tasker. When the key spirits left her body and went to Noa, she woke up without her memories. Gitra becomes her caregiver, taking her on a journey to see the world.
The younger brother of Jeem, and one of the four 'Ministers' of Tusk. Gitra's primary role is as Mirette's guardian and caregiver. As Mirette is never allowed to leave her tower, Gitra will frequently play a large pipe organ that Mirette can hear from her room. After Mirette escapes from the castle, Gitra goes on a desperate search for her and eventually finds her. Instead of taking her directly back to the castle, he takes her to his secret sanctuary. They manage to hide there for a short time before being discovered by Tusk soldiers. Gitra makes Mirette escape while he blocks the soldiers. After catching up, he confronts Zed and then Deucem. After Zed defeats Deucem and reveals his reason for being in Tusk, Gitra helps Zed enter the palace. His reasoning is that if Zed can acquire all the Key Spirits, then Mirette will finally be free of her 'fate' as the savior of Tusk.
Gitra fights with blue shards, that instead of being water-based, are in fact based on blue flames. In addition to wielding a sword, Gitra has demonstrated an ability to engulf his entire body in blue flames and then attack using hand-to-hand combat. The blue flames are so intense that he can disintegrate several opponents with a single flaming kick.
After Mirette loses her memories, he becomes her caregiver, and takes her to places to see the world.
One of the Ministers of Tusk and Gitra's older brother. He brought back the two key spirits that Sara possessed, to Tusk. He appears to be the oldest member of the four leaders and his voice seems to carry the most weight. In addition to being fanatically loyal to Mirette, he is also an accomplished fighter and is able to handle two Key Spirits for a short time in battle. Jeem is present when Mirette absorbs all the key shards and the spirit, Tasker, emerges. After Mirette collapses from the strain, Jeem takes her back to the Tusk Castle and places her back in her tower room. He later fights against Zed, Noa, and Gitra when they come and take Mirette back. He witnesses the spirit, Tasker, break into the separate key spirits and form a summoning ring. Believing that the true Tasker will emerge, Jeem removes his mask and walks into the center of the circle. To his horror, he is killed when Jumamis incinerates him with a fire blast.
A female shard caster who is one of the four ministers of Tusk. Not much is known of Morima, but it appears that she has her own goals that do not match those of Jeem or Deucem. She often feigns allegiance to the idea of getting all the Key Spirits for Mirette, yet her actions speak to a different plan. It was Morima that gave Mirette the 'move' shards that allowed her to escape and seems to not show any urgency with regards to finding the young girl. She is often seen standing in the shadows, more interested in observing than acting.
Her ultimate plan is to make sure that Tasker, the one she adores the most, gets resurrected, in order for him the destroy the current world, and then create a new one. After Noa gains all the key spirits and resurrects Tasker, she uses a move shard to arrive at his location. Delighted to see that Tasker is right in front of her, she approaches him, but is subsequently stabbed by Noa. At first, she is distraught over the fact that "Lord Doruga" has stabbed her, but as she looks up at Noa's face and leans on him, she feels relieved, and calls him "Lord Tasker". She dies shortly after.
Her weapon is a blue shard powered, short-handled scythe.
Deucem is one of the 4 Leaders of Tusk and a rather mysterious fellow. Like the other members of Tusk he wears a mask, covering his entire face. He lead the attack on Ulbaks. From what we have seen, he is a very formidable Shard Caster, easily disposing of Ginga, whom he shares a past with. Deucem was Ginga's Captain, and Ginga thought that he had killed his beloved Karen, which was a misunderstanding. Ginga also notes that Deucem was known for caring deeply about those that served him, and Ginga respected him greatly for that.
When Karen failed a mission to sabotage the defense system in Neotopia and returned injured, saying that it was nearly impossible, Deucem was angered and was about to kill her on the spot. Ginga pleaded for her life and promised to complete the mission in her place. However, he too failed the mission and was assaulted by a number of Neotopian Knights. He lost consciousness and when he regained it, he saw Deucem standing over Karen with his drawn sword. Enraged, he attacked Deucem, but Deucem severely wounded him and left him for dead.
Deucem explains to Ginga that after he left to go on the mission to Neotopia, she pleaded with him to allow her to help Ginga, but he refused. She, however, disobeyed orders and went after Ginga anyway. When he discovered what she’d done, he chased after her. She saw Ginga lose consciousness and she ran to fight the Neotopians to save him, but they ended up killing her. Deucem arrived and killed the Neotopian Knights, which is when Ginga regained consciousness and attacked him.
After battling Zed, Deucem falls off one of Tusk's floating pieces of land. He later shows up again, sporting a scar across his chest which he received from his battle with Zed. He battles Zed one last time, but faces defeat once again. Deucem is presumed dead after three fire shards, placed on his back by Zed, explodes.
A rather fat man that had been living within the lands of Tusk since his life had begun. Morocco is the father of Roya, in which he seems to be rather insane due to his great fear of his daughter. Morocco attained this idiotic fear by first dealing with a certain witch that had prophesied that Roya would "be the death of him". This insanity and great superstition greatly prospered after Roya (as a child) had given Morocco a rose as a gift, which pricked his finger, causing for a minor amount of blood loss. This threw him into a state of insanity throughout the rest of his life in which he convinced himself that Roya must die. Due to this fact, Morocco hires Despara to assassinate Roya. Because Roya's mother had joined bodies with Despara right before her death - as a result of her protecting Roya - Morocco could never look Despara in the face without being thrown into fear as to look at his own wife's face.
Ten years into the future when Morocco sees Roya dressed beautifully as the newly adopted daughter of Norman - a high ranking noble man of Tusk - he literally gets on his hands and knees and crawls quickly away from Roya in a moment of extreme fear within his insanity. After this, Morocco finds the whereabouts of Roya, and personally holds her by the throat and attempts to kill her. However, Despara - who became Jesara momentarily - is struck by his blow. Morocco then attempts to flee, but is instantly cut down by Cloud, thus finally ending his life of distortion.
A somewhat minor character within the anime due to only being shown within small intervals. Jesara Roya's mother. Jesara is first shown in episode 20, where she had been shown leaning on Cloud's shoulder, whom she seems to have a high level of love towards him. When Jesara later hears that Roya has returned to the land of Tusk after ten years, she asked Cloud to tell Roya to meet her at the fallen cathedral within Tusk. After Roya comes up to her mother for the first time (within her memory), Roya realizes that she is soon confronting a woman by the name of Despara instead. It is revealed later in the episode that Jesara had merged her spirit within Despara's body right before her death, which had taken place when she had protected Roya from Despara. Jesara is only later seen when she had protected Roya again by jumping in the way of Morocco's blade, who had at the time held Roya and intended on killing her. Despara is the one who had truly received the blow, in which Jesara had faded away in death in Cloud's arms, telling him to "live on".
A rather young woman that had seemingly been a high ranking official of Tusk even since a young age. Despara always wears a half-mask around her face - a shared trait amongst the people of Tusk - and has a rather cruel and arrogant personality. Despara is also the right-hand guardian of Morocco, the father of Roya. At one time in which Despara had been ordered to kill Roya, due to Morocco's grand superstition and insanity, Despara had confronted Roya along a small cliff. Roya's mother however had vowed to protect Roya, which led to Roya accidentally falling of the cliff - later to be saved be Jiko - and the supposed death of Roya's mother. However, Roya's mother had quickly thrown her spirit into that of Despara's, effectively leading Despara to have another person living inside of her.
Despara believes that the only way to get rid of Jesara from her body is to slay Roya. This later leads to Jesara meeting with Roya at a cathedral, but Despara ends up coming out and she attempts to kill Roya. However, Cloud holds Despara at bay, effectively allowing Roya to make her escape. Despara later encounters Roya again, however, Cloud duels her again. After Morocco himself holds Roya, intending on killing her, Despara jumps in the way of the blow (who was taken over by Jesara within a quick moment), and dies. Due to Despara's death, and the unity of their body, they both end up dying as a result.
A man around the age of 30 who always wairs a suit of armor with blue large shoulder pads. He also seems to have a considerate and kind personality towards others. Cloud is first shown when Hugh had gone to Kalbu-fu with Cloud and Despara. At this point, however, the characteristics of Cloud were unknown. Later on in the series, it is revealed that, like Dumas, Cloud is a Joker, or spy, for Templer. Cloud is sent to gather more knowledge about the country of Tusk, where he seems to hold a relationship with Roya's mother, Jesara. After Cloud assists in Roya's escape, Cloud later elaborated to Roya and Zed about the truth of Roya's past. After Cloud explains her past, they are attacked by a group of Tusker worshippers. Cloud flees with Roya while Zed holds the Tuskers at bay with Rambos and Amil Gaoul. Later, Cloud explains to Roya that he will always protect her, as which is the will of her mother, Jesara.
Very soon after, however, Cloud is attacked by a rather angry Despara, who he holds at bay for the second time. After Despara, who at the time became Jesara, gets killed after being struck by Morocco's blade that had been intended for Roya, Morocco attempts to flee. Cloud however makes quick work of Morocco by delivering a fatal stab through his stomach, effectively killing him. After Roya and Zed return to Templer, Cloud sits by Jesara's side for the last time, because she had been sharing the same body with the now-dead Despara. Afterwards, Cloud returns to Tusk to continue his ways as a Joker.
The younger brother of the leader of the Kalbu-fu. He was imprisoned in the "dark training grounds" and forced to fight Zed for survival. Rebecca and her party interrupted, allowing and assisting both to escape. Like everyone in the training grounds, Guzman was also forced to undergo harsh training. If he didn't comply, his loved one would have been killed. After Zymot attacks the underground homeland of the Kalbu-fu, Guzman opposes, giving into Zymot's demands and assists Rebecca with fighting Hugh.
When Kalbu-fu was no longer in danger, Guzman lived happily with his girlfriend and new born baby, whom they named Rebecca, after the late Princess Rebecca.
A mysterious youth with the power to reverse spirit summonings, however, Key Spirits are only able to be temporarily paralyzed. He is first seen in Tusk, where he rescues Roya from the Beast Humans, and later helps Zed stop her execution after she breaks the "Ultimate Rules" during the Neotopian Joust. He counsels Herrick against using the composite spirit Ex-Machina to kill Hairam, but fails to stop Herrick. After Herrick is killed by Ex-Machina, he leaves Neotopia with Herrick's body.
Later when Ulbaks is under attack by Tusk he asks Zed and Roya for help. There, he goes after Deucem, to take his revenge. It is stated that the girl whom he loved was killed by the soldiers from Neotopia and not by Deucem. Deucem leaves him and goes back to the central lab. Ginga is left behind while being stunned by this news. As the island explodes, it is hinted that he has died. You see his mechanic shoulder drifting in the sea with no body attached.
In the last episode, it shows that Ginga survived and completed Ex-Machina, though it was easily defeated by Tasker. After Tasker was defeated, Ginga went back to rebuild Ulbaks.
A former contender of the Neotopian Joust tournament. He attempts to recruit Zed to fight against Hairam, the supreme judge of Neotopia that oversees the "Ultimate Rules". After this is unsuccessful, he ignores Professor Bender's advice and takes the composite spirit Ex-Machina, thinking that he can finally kill Hairam with it. He is killed while trying to stop Ex-Machina, which he can no longer control, after defeating Kira and discovering that she is his sister Chelsea.
Sara is first shown when Zed goes to Calm Hospital after taking Noa to be treated. He shows her a certain feathered pendulum that Noa had given him. She stares at the pendulum in a rather strange display of surprise. After Zed is later attacked by a teacher of Calm, who was actually a member of Tusk, Sara personally battles it out with him. This reveals that Sara herself is a shard caster and possesses a sense of duty to protect her son, or at least to get rid of this Tusk member. Most of this battle is not really shown because she never releases any spirit, but instead continuously threw fire shards. Though, Sara is later shown holding the body of this Tusk member, in which it can be assumed he is dead. After this, she appeared several times, showing up in strange places, watching as events unfolded.
It is later revealed that she is a member of the Seekers, and was given a mission to find and bring Sagiri to the Seeker's flying fortress. During the siege of Neotopia, Sara appears to Diana and Noa in the catacombs below Hairam's temple, wielding the newly discovered key spirit, Monardi. She uses the spirit to battle Diana and in the end captures Sagiri. Before departing, she witnesses the death of Hugh at her son's hands and takes Pronimo's shard after it leaves Hugh's body. Sara was present at the destruction of Ulbaks.
After Sagiri escaped from the Seekers, Sara was sent to recover her in Templer. There she was reunited with Jiko, whom Sara had an obvious hatred for. It was later revealed that Sara was originally from Calm, but had been kidnapped and brought to Templer by Jiko, who believed that Sara was the chosen one of Amil Gaoul. Sara received Amil Gaoul's shard becoming a shard caster in the process. She then endured harsh training from Jiko in order to one day wield the powerful spirit. During the Zymot invasion, Sara tried to call Amil Gaoul prematurely, and even though the spirit appeared, he turned and abandoned Sara. Shortly afterwards, Jiko had turned his back on Sara and made her go back to Calm despite her pleas for another chance. It appears that Sara had experienced a moment of extreme ecstasy when Amil Gaoul first entered her body, and she longed to experience that sensation again. As a result, Sara has been living with constant 'withdrawal'-like feelings ever since. Her ultimate motive in all her actions was not to help the Seekers, but to gain the other key spirits, in order to gain the power to control Amil Gaoul.
To further exemplify her obsession, Sara has developed a means of draining other shard caster's energy directly into her own body through multiple leech-like appendages that can be extended from her summoning crystal on her neck. It is this energy that allows her to wield the Key Spirit, Monardi, but only for short periods of time. Sara both loves and despises her son, Zed, because it was revealed that he had always been the chosen one of Amil Gaoul, and Sara has stated that if Zed were to die, she could regain the spirit.
Sara confronted Zed and as they prepared to fight, Jeem and his soldiers appeared. He incapacitates Sara and takes her two key spirits. At that moment, the Seeker fortress appears and Jeem flees. In the confusion, Sara also flees. She is not seen again until she tracks Zed to Tusk. Shortly afterwards, Jiko and Roya appear looking for Zed. Sara tries to drain Roya's power, but is stopped by Jiko. Sara is so weak at this point that she can't even cast a spell shard. Jiko tells her that in this state, wielding Amil Gaoul would kill her. Sara states that as long as she can feel that 'ecstasy' again, she doesn't care.
Later, Sara appears before Zed and leads him to a small cave. As they walk, she asks Zed how old he is now, saying that she has missed so much of his growing up. She asks if he is hungry and that she can cook something for him. Zed is, at first, suspicious, but relents and allows her to cook for him. However, this is just a ruse to allow her to get the key spirit, as she poisons the soup that she is preparing. However, Sara's mental state has deteriorated so much that she doesn't realize that she is speaking all her thoughts aloud and that Zed can hear her. Still she tries to give him the poisoned soup, which he angrily slaps away and tries to leave. She collapses and reaches out and grabs his arm begging for Amil Gaoul. Zed is so disgusted by this that he gives her the key spirit.
Sara runs off happily and absorbs the key spirit. Jiko soon arrives and demands Amil Gaoul back, but Sara summons the spirit and fights him, but Amil Gaoul is too powerful and Jiko is defeated. As she stands triumphant, she suddenly grabs her head and screams. Inside her mind, she floats in a golden-colored void, but is suddenly surrounded by black feathers, turning the void black. She reaches out for the key spirit shard floating in front of her and grabs it. Sara says that with the shard she can protect that which is most precious to her. However, she suddenly realizes that she can't remember what it was that was so precious to her. Begging the key spirit to tell her, the shard flies up and creates a round opening where a bright light streams through.
From the light, Sara hears the faint laugh of an infant. As she peers into the light, she sees her younger self holding her baby, Zed, in her arms, as he laughs and holds her finger. Sara finally remembers what was most precious to her, the one thing that drove away the darkness in her life and gave her a reason to live...her son, Zed. Tears streaming down her face, she laments how she could have forgotten. Reawakening in Roya's arms, she gives Roya the key shard and whispers some words into her ear before dying. Her last words were, "My precious Zed....thank you."
Sagiri is a little girl introduced in episode 5. She belongs to a group of nomads that were carrying with them the Key Spirit, Sachira. One day, while she was wandering through a forest with a nomad named Galba, she found Noa collapsed against a tree. Sagiri and Galba brought Noa to a place where he could recover. After nursing Noa back to health, she befriended him. When Noa obtained Sachira, all of the Nomads were killed except her. With nowhere else to go, she went with Noa to Neotopia.
During the war which led to Neotopia's downfall, she was kidnapped by Sara and was reunited with the Seekers. She learned that she is a descendant of a royal bloodline of Seekers, who were born in a place called Leon. At some point in time, Zymot invaded Leon. In order to keep Sagiri safe, she was entrusted to Galba, who raised her. Sagiri received the Key Spirit Shadin and is the Seekers "Savior", but in episode 46, she entrusts Shadin to Zed, in return for requesting that he find and protect Noa. She is last seen living on the Seeker's flying ship.
