In the early 21st century, a sudden shortage of food and energy sparked World War III, a massive conflict that saw the deaths of millions and brought the population of Earth to 15% of its prewar level. Years later, an uneasy calm has descended on humanity, although a state of war still technically exists. Four power blocs that share control of the Moon and the earth, each looking for a weakness they can exploit against the others.

Lt. Colonel Carla Benedict is a former millitary commando and a commander of the moon base. Having both technical and commando background, she's perfectly suited to be in charge of all base operations. She keeps her military background secret, <hidden by spoiler settings>. Her vast knowledge and power as well as her position also makes her a suspect in possible sabotage of base's operations so Captain Leiji has to keep his true identity secret even from her.

An engineering support specialist and a top-secret military android prototype EL-03, Elise is undergoing on-site testing on a remote moon base. Her true identity and nature is known only by Captain Osumi Leiji and Commander Carla Benedict. To everybody else on the base, she's just an ordinary, low level technical staff member. Her skills will prove to be invaluable for Leiji's investigation. Despite her humanesque qualities, in the beginning Leiji will only see her as nothing but a mechanical doll.

One of the few men on the base, Sergeant Jackie Kaminski is the top Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO). He respects brute force over anything else. The ultimate professional, he has the respect of everyone. However, he has a reputation for not getting "involved" with other troops, even though others currently have no self-control in that area. He was Julietta's drill sergeant at the Military Academy and she often relies on his judgement even though she is technically his superior.

2nd Lieutenant Julietta Thorndike is the Commando Squad Leader on the moon base. She was trained by Sergeant Jackie Kaminski at the Military Academy. She is physically competent and keeps the commando squad on the base in top shape. While the model of physical fitness, she's really ignorant when it comes to technical matters. This makes it virtually impossible for her to be the saboteur on the base but nobody will be written off as suspicious by Captain Leiji.

Captain Lai Wong, the commanding officer of the technical portion of the base where the sabotage is occuring and next in command after Commander Carla Benedict, is an extremely haughty person and she is proud of her Chinese heritage. She also has a superiority complex and hates being overshadowed by anyone for any reason. Being a difficult person to deal with doesn't make her an automatic suspect, but her complete knowledge of the base operations means she mustn't be overlooked by Captain Leiji.

Monica is a civilian reporter who works for a major broadcast network that somehow managed to get a clearance to record from inside the moon base, despite the fact that most of the activity there is highly classified. She has a dual personality. Monica is aggressive and vulgar while wearing the goggles for her 3-D camera, and on the opposite - shy and unsure without them. Even with her limited access to the facilities as a civilian, few people would seriously consider her to be capable of sabotage. But Captain Leiji will keep an eye on her nevertheless.

Corporal Reiko Shinozuka is Leiji's official support liaison. Due to her clumsiness and lack of communication skills, Reiko's extraordinary intelligence at working with computers has been overlooked by everyone. Of course, that means she's a potential suspect for the damage of the base's computer system. She takes an immediate liking to Leiji due to their common Japanese ancestry.
