The game is set after the events of Blazblue: Calamity Trigger. A few days have passed since the reported raid by Ragna the Bloodedge, The 13th Hierarchical City "Kagutsuchi" forgets to celebrate New Years, as his alleged involvement in the "Mysterious Bombing" and "Huge Pentacle Sightings" becomes the talk of the town. With the Novus Orbis Librarium offering no official explanation, the citizens voice their own theories, exaggerating and spreading rumors like wildfire. The name "Ragna the Bloodedge" is engraved in the minds of the people. Completely indifferent to the state of the city, the silver-haired Grim Reaper grips his massive sword and quietly bides his time—waiting for the chance to achieve his true objective. And then, the enormous "power" that has ensnared the "Grim Reaper" begins to activate...

Ragna the Bloodedge is a wanted criminal with an extraordinarily large bounty on his head (well in the trillions) for attempting to destroy the Novus Orbis Librarium, and is Jin and Saya's older brother. He is a playable character and the main protagonist of the BlazBlue series. He possesses heterochormia due to the side effect from assimilating the Azure Grimoire into his body.
Ragna is sardonic, rude, and abrasive to anyone he comes across. He is also quick to anger, stubborn, and never misses a chance to use as much vulgar language as possible. In this regard, Ragna is similar to the stereotypical anime delinquent. This is caused mainly by Yuuki Terumi practically destroying Ragna's life, which has created a mass of hatred in him; stronger than that of any other individual. Ragna often becomes infuriated at first sight of Terumi, which he often takes advantage of through taunting him. However, even in cases where he cannot win or is on the brink of death, Ragna possesses an undying will and refuses to give up, something many characters either hate or admire.

Beneath his gruff exterior, however, Ragna does possess a softer, more compassionate side. He chooses to keep up his public front because of the path he chose – that of revenge. He does genuinely care for certain people, such as Taokaka, Rachel, Noel, Jubei and, to an extent, his brother, Jin. He spared Arakune's life due to Litchi's pleas, and in his Arcade Mode, he directly references his promise to Litchi to let him live after he defeats him. Also, despite Jin's role in the destruction of his life, still cares for him as a brother.

Ragna is an extremely powerful individual within the world of BlazBlue, having been trained in combat and ars magus by Jubei, wielding an Azure Grimoire and a rather unusual sword called Blood-Scythe, he is able to easily take down entire squads of the Librarium by himself. Being the wielder of an Azure Grimoire, Ragna is able to manipulate darkness in the form of the various body parts of the Black Beast through his Drive, Soul Eater, which also absorbs the opponent's life force to replenish his own. By utilizing an ability called "Blood Kain", Ragna is able to use his Azure Grimoire to greatly enhance his physical abilities and strengthens his Drive, although it wears down his own life force during its duration.

Hazama is a captain of the Novus Orbis Librarium's Intelligence Department and one of the main antagonists in the series. He originally appeared as a non-playable character in the story mode of Calamity Trigger, but starting with Continuum Shift, he became a playable character.

Hazama maintains a calm and quiet demeanor around most people, pretending to be harmless as a member of the Intelligence Department. He claims to hate fighting and prefers to avoid conflict. This, however, is simply a guise to his true nature. When people see through it, he shows his true colors as selfish and manipulative; destroying other people's lives and twisting their beliefs for his own gain. He has no qualms with killing those who got in his way and showed absolutely no remorse for his actions.

<hidden by spoiler settings>In reality, he was an artificially created human designed to be the host vessel for Yuuki Terumi. Hazama worked alongside Sector Seven and Relius Clover to create μ-No.12-, a Murakumo Unit designed to become a heart for a new Black Beast that Sector Seven desired to destroy the NOL. Hazama, who's artificial body is in actual fact, an Azure Grimoire, sought to fuse with Mu to become the Black Beast's body; however, this plan was thwarted by the Takamagahara who subsequently fired Take-Mikazuchi upon the 5th Hierarchical City of Ibukido, decimating the city into what was soon known as the 'Burning Fields of Ikaruga'. Mu's smelting process was halted and she was later adopted and christened as Noel Vermillion.

Jin Kisaragi is a member 4th Thaumaturgist Squadron, a Major and Commander of the Novus Orbis Librarium, and Ragna and Saya's brother. He is a playable character and the main deuteragonist in the BlazBlue series. He is also Tsubaki's childhood friend, whom he holds a genuine soft spot.
When Jin was a little boy, he was very dependent on his older brother, Ragna, for affection and constantly pestered him to play with him. He saw his sister Saya as an obstacle of getting his brother's attention and constantly bullied her in retaliation. Eventually, Ragna decided to look after the sickly Saya and distanced himself from Jin, he grew jealous of the relationship Ragna and Saya shared, and eventually attempted to kill her, immediately after Saya gave him the Nox Nyctores, Yukianesa.

Where his brother Ragna is hot-tempered and quick to draw first blood, Jin is cold, aloof, and borderline sociopathic. He cares little for the feelings of others, and denounces, in his own words, trivialities like camaraderie, believing that such things are lies that people use to their advantage. He has no compunction with killing anyone who gets in the way of his goal. In addition, he repeatedly shows that he dislikes reminiscing about the past, particularly about his days at the Military Academy.

This, however, is all a façade. The moment he reunites with Ragna, Jin loses his calm, detached demeanor and reverts to his childhood self. His voice becomes noticeably more ecstatic, and he is now prone to fits of maniacal laughter, mostly due to Yukianesa's influence (which compels him to kill his brother due to his nature as the Black Beast, as well as the Power of Order, which perceives him as a threat to the stability of the world). In the past, Jin would often cling to Ragna for assistance with everything, which greatly annoyed him and was jealous of Saya when Ragna spent more time with her. However, it is shown during the first time loop that Jin loved his sister Saya as much as he did Ragna.

Noel Vermillion is a lieutenant of the Novus Orbis Librarium who is assigned to return the AWOL Jin Kisaragi to his post, and his secretary as well. She is a playable character and the main heroine in the BlazBlue series. She is the adopted daughter of the Vermilion family, which used to be a noble family.

Noel is the definition of the "shrinking violet" archetype. She is shy, clumsy, and tends to get worked up over the smallest things. Noel is extremely self-conscious, especially regarding her notoriously flat breasts. She can be socially awkward at times, but this has actually served as an endearing trait, which earned her Tsubaki and Makoto's friendship. In spite of this, she is shown to be quite passionate and determined when motivated, and is loyal to her friends and allies.
Then there's the soft and unfettered side to her personality that shows compassion to every person and being, and how everyone is being treated. With her job out of the way, she enjoys relaxing with friends and reminiscing, nostalgically. When she cares for others' well-being, she overlooks her traits and is much more responsible. It's also shown that she is completely at a loss when she loses her guns: she starts crying and throwing a tantrum, just like a baby.

The term Lacking Lady, made by Taokaka, directed at Noel Vermillion, is one thing she can't seem to stand, though being called a boy or a man is worse. Each sets off a domino effect. The first makes her feel vulnerable and then ponder her role as a woman as she looks to other woman with bigger breasts. The second triggers a dormant volcano of emotion that is then directed at the person who makes the remark. When she is finally angry, she puts aside all shame and forlorn and builds up the confidence to abuse her title of position to call it, "Obstruction of Justice!"

<hidden by spoiler settings>Noel is actually μ-No.12-, the twelfth Murakumo Unit made and said to be the most succesful one as well. Her real age is closer to 5. Due to being Saya's clone, she possesses some of her memories, and this is why she also looks very similar to her. Made by Sector Seven in Ibukido to become the heart for the Black Beast and to fuse with Hazama, the body, she was to be made in the middle of the Ikaruga Civil War to become the ultimate weapon for Sector Seven to use against the NOL. However, this plan was thwarted by Takamagahara System as they fired Gigant: Take-Mikazuchi upon the city, utterly obliterating every living being within the blast radius. Mu, in the stage of being smelted, and thus, in a cocoon, was saved from the same fate as the others, but left without an identity. She was later found and then subsequently adopted by Edgar and Claire Vermillion and christened as Noel Vermillion. When she turns into this form, she becomes completely void of emotion, just appearing as a cruel and cold killing machine. Her Bolverk are actually not just her weapons, but also for keeping her emotions in control.

<hidden by spoiler settings>In reality, Noel is the other half of the very first prime field device, "The Origin", which resides inside Master Unit: Amaterasu. However, she then escaped at some point in her life from it, and possessed Mu-12 until they split up into two completely different entities.

Rachel Alucard is the current head of the Alucard family, and a very powerful being. Rachel behaves like a stereotypical upper-class individual, often looking down upon others with boredom, arrogance, snobbery and apathy, and hates her vampire urges. She is seemingly one of the most powerful characters in the series to the point where she can 'keep up' with Yuuki Terumi. Rachel can create a dimension called the Requiem which intersects with her dream world. She is always with her servants Nago and Gii and usually with her butler, Valkenhayn R. Hellsing.

Rachel is a stereotypical aristocratic heiress. She has an almost enchanting air of dignity and grace, yet is sarcastic and condescending to those she considers lower than her, always expecting them to have the highest standards of formality when conversing with her.

Perhaps her most intriguing relationship is with Ragna. Although Rachel would never admit to it, she loves Ragna for his determination and unwillingness to give up even when the odds are against him, wanting him to reach his full potential as a warrior and as a person.

Tsubaki Yayoi is Jin's childhood friend, Noel's and Makoto's former roommate from the Military Academy, and a first lieutenant of the non-official Novus Orbis Librarium's Zero Squadron. She originally appeared as a non-playable character in the story mode of BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger. However, since BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, she became a playable character. She is a member of the Yayoi family, one of the 10 families of the Duodecim.

Tsubaki is a serious, mature, and intelligent person. She has always followed her orders from the NOL and has complete faith in them (likely to honor her family name). She has always had a childhood crush on Jin, and deeply loves and cares about him. She was also good friends with Noel, Makoto and Carl Clover when they were at Military Academy. <hidden by spoiler settings>However, when Hazama told Tsubaki about the alternative timeline where she was always with Jin as his secretary and how Noel usurped that position away from her, she becomes extremely jealous. She begins to harbor a hatred toward her best friend that, once manipulated by Phantom's sorcery, evolves into a desire to kill her in order to be with Jin. Even after changing sides, she still respects Hakumen despite sharing different views.

In BlazBlue: Chronophantasma, Tsubaki's personality had almost been completely overwritten by the effects of Mind Eater, the spell that Phantom cast on her in order to allow the Imperator to control her directly. Her devotion to the NOL had been taken to its greatest extreme, and she was little more than a mindless drone who lived to carry out any and all of the Imperator's orders, including killing her own friends. When Jin confronted her, however, she showed signs of resistance due to her feelings for him.

Ada is the older sister of Carl and the daughter of Relius. Due to one of her father's experiments, she was turned into the Nox Nyctores, Nirvana. One day, for reasons unknown, she agreed to become the subject of one of her father's experiments, although it is possible she was either forced or deceived into doing so. As a result, her body was fused into the Nox Nyctores known as Nirvana. Unfortunately, Carl bore witness to the experiment and now seeks out his father in order to get revenge. Nirvana follows him now as his partner and weapon, acting upon his commands and protecting him.

Before becoming a doll, Ada was a kind, calm, and cheerful person. She was always very kind to her younger brother. Due to her affection, Carl idolized her, and frequently spoke highly of her to his friends at school (much to their amusement). Supposedly, she is also a bit self-conscious about her appearance. After becoming a doll, she becomes lifeless but shows unusually high sentience, protecting Carl from anything that would be a threat to him sometimes without any provocation.

Arakune is a black, blob-like creature with a white mask and a playable character. He formerly worked alongside Kokonoe, Tager and Litchi in Sector Seven. He was formerly a human named Lotte "Roy" Carmine. After an attempt to study the link between the Boundary, the Azure Grimoire, and the Black Beast and eventually managed to find a way to briefly enter the Boundary due to his inferiority complex over Kokonoe's genius, he became what he is today, now housing innumerable insects with his now-blobby body and thriving on knowledge. His horrible condition has rendered him virtually insane and lacking any reliable memory, as well as distorting his speech to near incoherency – most of his dialogue consists of gibberish, insane laughter and tortured screaming – but it seems that Litchi and Kokonoe can understand his speech.

He is very obsessed with finding the Azure Grimoire and wants it for himself, to the point of even trying to consume Ragna multiple times in the story. He had a hard time remembering Litchi when he was human, but slowly regained memories of his life, and started to remember Kokonoe and Relius, the latter being hated by Arakune.

Carl is a young vigilante who dropped out of the Military Academy, and a playable character ever since the first game. A talented young boy and first-class vigilante, Carl has brought many criminals to justice with the aid of his mysterious doll Deus Machina: Nirvana, which he believes to be his elder sister, Ada Clover. Carl heads to the 13th Hierarchical City of Kagutsuchi to retrieve the bounty for Ragna the Bloodedge. He is a former classmate of Noel, Jin, Makoto, and Tsubaki when they were in the Military Academy, but he dropped out. Carl wants to get revenge on his father Relius, for what he did to his older sister.

Carl has a very professional mindset, and dislikes being treated as a kid. He is always calm and collected, even when staring down a foe. During his days in Military Academy and when Ada was still a human, Carl would often talk about her and almost nothing else, to the point where everyone teased him about his close relationship with her.
This, however, is a side effect of Nirvana. Behind his mature facade, Carl hides an almost crippling dependency upon his sister Ada. He suffers greatly on the inside because he has practically lost his entire family to his father Relius' experiments. From the get-go, the incident with Relius caused him to believe that all adults were liars who would only use him for their own ends. With the help of Litchi, Carl learns that his beliefs are not entirely true, and he overcomes his sorrows. Carl now wants to grow up to be someone like Litchi and Bang – good people who help those in need. It is for this reason that Carl did not condemn Litchi for siding with Relius and NOL, and instead shows concern that she is in danger.

<hidden by spoiler settings>In Central Fiction, Carl is shown to become more and more like Relius without even Carl himself noticing the transformation, being willing to sacrifice anyone in order to attain his goals. He goes even as far as trying to kill Litchi because her soul seemed suitable for Nirvana's body, in order to get Ada back.

Hakumen is one of the Six Heroes, and a playable character in the BlazBlue series. Hakumen is a samurai-esque warrior wielding a sword around as tall as he is and wearing a mask that completely hides his face. He is an incredibly powerful individual in the BlazBlue universe, so much so that the player is often told to proceed with caution when confronting him, and at times even advised not to do so entirely. His armor (which is the Susano'o Unit) seems to grant him limitless energy and incredible power, and his sword (a Nox Nyctores named "Ookami") appears to bear the capability to kill characters that otherwise would be immortal, or have rapid healing properties that would make them difficult or impossible to kill. This makes him an equally dangerous foe to both mortal men as well as more powerful beings. Due to the fact that Hakumen is only at 20% of his original power and yet is still considered an extremely dangerous adversary, it is possible that, should his full power be completely restored, he could very well be one of the most powerful individuals in the BlazBlue universe.

Hakumen is a very serious individual who is usually extremely focused on the task at hand and rarely shows any emotion beyond stoicism. His attitude can come off to others as prideful, stubborn, and even arrogant, occasionally getting him into issues with his comrades when he refuses to cooperate with them and tries to handle things on his own. His solitary goal is to eradicate evil wherever it hides and rarely compromises, warning his target to not take his mercy lightly when he spares them. While Hakumen is generally cold toward others, he does have respect for Jubei, Valkenhayn, and Trinity, occasionally indulging them in conversation. Although Rachel frustrates him with her commandeering attitude, he is willing to tolerate her to some extent not unlike that of Ragna. He also shows respect towards Bang as a fellow man of justice. Due to his ego, Hakumen often clashes with other members of the cast. Over time, however, he has become much more focused on the more important matters, letting fate run its course with the rest of the cast and not interfering with their affairs.

<hidden by spoiler settings>It is revealed that Hakumen is, in fact, Jin Kisaragi through hints given to the player during both their respective stories in Calamity Trigger. In the original timeline, ν-No.13- killed Tsubaki Yayoi and afterwards, jumped into the Cauldron with Jin's brother, Ragna the Bloodedge at the Gate of Sheol. In a fit of rage, Jin went after her, and was thrown into the past, not long before the birth of the Black Beast. As he was lying on the ground, injured and helpless due to the previous battles and the trip through the Boundary tearing him, physically and mentally, he met Rachel, who offered him a chance to become a true hero, and thus, he turned into what he is now. Jin was taken to Alucard Castle for treatment; he woke up after one week and was greeted by Rachel's father, Clavis Alucard. He noticed not only his body, but his memory was also damaged, which Clavis explained as the result of his trip through the Boundary. Barely concerned himself with what the old vampire was saying, Jin's mind was stuck with the thought of having to eliminate the Black Beast. According to Clavis, Jin's arrival right before the Dark War, was not a coincidence, but the will of the world. A will, that the world gained through human hands.
<hidden by spoiler settings>Due to the fact that Hakumen is Jin Kisaragi's alternate future self, they share many similar traits. Both are cold, stubborn, anti-social, and desire Ragna to die by their hands. However, while Jin's desire is brought out as an obsessive impulse, Hakumen merely does so as it is his destiny, yet regrets every bit of it, showing that deep down he cares about his brother.

Iron Tager is a Sector Seven soldier and loyal subordinate to Kokonoe, and one of the playable characters ever since the first game. Originally the leader of a Sector Seven assault team sent to retrieve Nirvana in the 4th Hierarchical City of Naobi, the mission was intercepted by Azrael and the man who would come to be known as Tager suffered a mortal wound during the mission. After being taken back to Sector Seven's headquarters, Tager was in critical condition, with suspicions being raised about him not surviving his injuries. He was later taken to Kokonoe's lab where she ran numerous tests on him and found that he was compatible with Demon Cells. She operated on him later on, turning Tager into what he is known as today.

Tager is a serious, mature cyborg. Well known as a fearsome mechanical juggernaut to the enemies of Sector Seven, he is feared by many, having earned him the alias "Red Devil" whereas in truth, he is very calm and calculated, only engaging in violence when necessary. He places great trust and faith in Kokonoe, and will follow orders without complaint. However, there have been some occasions where he follows his own intuition and judgement to choose what to do in a situation, especially true in the case of orders he believes to be rash, immoral or cruel.
Within Sector Seven he is known as a solid, dependable soldier, a resourceful and reliable field agent and a passionate scientist. Relationships with his colleagues, both former and current, are both professional and amicable. In Calamity Trigger, he is seen chatting pleasantly with Litchi, then a member of Sector Seven, about his new assignment as Kokonoe's field agent; Litchi mentions that Kokonoe's tasks must be gruelling to give "our Tager" cause for complaint, signifying his established status as a quiet, skilled professional.

Story-wise, Tager is infamous in the world for his fierce appearance and frightening stature, and his combat prowess matches if not exceeds his reputation; his intelligence and cyborg body only adding to his collective arsenal. Tager has stood toe-to-toe with high-threat targets such as Hakumen, Ragna, Jin and Relius, as well as his former colleagues Arakune and Litchi, two beings who stream power from the Boundary.

Jubei is one of the Six Heroes and Kokonoe's father. He is also the progenitor of the Kaka race, and Ragna's master. He battled the Black Beast alongside Hakumen, and played a part in the Ikaruga Civil War. Despite his physical appearance, he is a powerful warrior. He works to safeguard his friends in their times of need. Jubei has a relatively awkward relationship with his daughter, the reason being that he left her in the care of the NOL for a large portion of her childhood, while never visiting. After the emergence of the Black Beast in Japan, Jubei was left as the sole survivor of his clan, with his brother, Tomonori, having been killed by Terumi.

Jubei is generally agreeable, sociable and optimistic. Whenever there is a great threat, such as Ragna or the NOL around, he always keeps his laid-back attitude and stays relaxed. He makes the best of every situation, and is always trying to see the good in everything.

At times, though, Jubei shows a far more jaded and bitter side. Due to many of his friends having died, Jubei shows deep-seated guilt over his inability to do anything. As such, he has felt that he is nothing more than a weak coward who runs home with his tail between his legs while leaving good people such as Hakumen and Bloodedge to their fate. The supposed death of his lover, Nine, and having to leave their daughter Kokonoe without a family, only wound him further. Because of those losses, however, Jubei is even more driven to do what's right, and will use the power he has to do so.

Dislikes: Stereotypes

Kokonoe is a scientist at Sector Seven, and the daughter of Jubei and Nine, two of the Six Heroes, though she shows disdain for this fact, supposedly "staying angry for weeks" when Jubei is mentioned. The reason behind this is that Jubei left her in the care of the Novus Orbis Librarium for a great deal of her childhood, apparently not staying around to act as a father figure to her. She is became a playable character in Chronophantasma.

Kokonoe is a rather serious and cynical woman with no regard for emotions, and always strives for Tager to complete his missions without fail; however, she can on rare occasions be quite personable, mostly around her creations. She is displayed and perceived as cranky and foul-mouthed most of the time. She and Taokaka possess a few similar personality traits, something that most note as "more in common than they realize", due to their impatient nature and short attention span. She has some traits of her father and her mother. She also displays signs of being aware of the racism displayed to her heritage as a half-Beastkin; believing that people will show prejudice against her, it's for this reason that even her potential new students and apprentices aren't aware of her species, as displayed by Litchi in Chronophantasma.
However, as Celica points out, Kokonoe is a good person at heart. Without Litchi's knowledge, she became Arakune's Observer despite the risks entailed to prevent the Boundary from consuming him and is trying to figure out an effective solution for his depraved state. Also, she repeatedly shows that she will only resort to mass destruction in a worst-case scenario, preferring to minimize the casualties caused by her war against Terumi or not have any at all.

Despite being as capable on the battlefield as much as any character, Kokonoe doesn't participate in combat a great deal. Her forte comes in the form of her grand knowledge of magic and science and being the daughter of Konoe supplements this. While she has not shown any of her own creations, her prowess as a scientist is frightening, her alterations to organic and non-organic matter being second to none, even causing the normally ruthless and intimidating Hakumen to shudder at the promise of an 'upgrade' from her. Owing to her cat-like heritage, Kokonoe is known to possess cat-like reflexes, landing on all fours after falling from relatively great heights with no damage whatsoever.

Litchi Faye-Ling is a renowned doctor living in Orient Town, located in the 13th Hierarchical City of Kagutsuchi. She is a playable character. Litchi owns a clinic in the main throng of Orient Town, and is helped by her assistant Linhua. For a time, she worked with Tager and Kokonoe in Sector Seven, until an incident, where a man by the name of Lotte Carmine, who seemed to hold much importance to Litchi, became Arakune. The next 2 years she spends on searching for Arakune, until she finally finds him throughout the course of Calamity Trigger.

Litchi, at first glance, can be perceived as the perfect woman – courteous, sexy, and intelligent. Being a doctor and former scientist, she is a kind person who is willing to help those in need. She is good friends with the Kaka Clan, acting as their teacher both mentally and, in Taokaka's case, physically. She has a one-sided, rather awkward relationship with Bang: Litchi likes him as a friend, while Bang is infatuated with her, but does not know how to express his love.

In her heart, however, Litchi hides a deep guilt for not being able to help her colleague Lotte, who became the being known as Arakune. In secret, she has searched for a way to cure him through any means necessary, and thus, often annoys Kokonoe.

Makoto is a playable character starting from Continuum Shift II. She is a former classmate of Tsubaki, Noel, Mai and Kajun as well as a schoolmate of Carl and Jin from the Military Academy, where she went under the name "Nanaya" until befriending and opening up to Tsubaki and Noel.

She is a squirrel-type beastkin and is considerably hyperactive with a short attention span, though she has proven to be rather cunning when she needs to be. She is outgoing and adventurous. She has a few complexes about her race, but nonetheless, she acknowledges who she is and is proud of it. In BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, Makoto works for the Novus Orbis Librarium Intelligence Department with Hazama but is actually a spy for Sector Seven. In the True Ending, she defects from the NOL after finding out what happened and leaves with Noel and Iron Tager.

Makoto is a silly, friendly, generally whimsical and energetic beastkin. She also appears to be somewhat scatter-brained, though this trait belies her true aptitude as an Intelligence operative and spy for Sector Seven. She is one of Noel's best friends, though unlike Tsubaki, she harbors no jealousy towards her. She cares deeply for her friends and cannot stand when they fight each other. When she was in Military Academy, she used to be cruel, mean, selfish, and hated humans, but then had a change of heart by Tsubaki's words when she confronted her fellow female classmates who were picking on her. When she, Tsubaki, and Noel were trapped in the lower levels of Kagutsuchi, it was revealed that she just wanted to be accepted for who she is. Makoto also has a serious side when it comes to her friends, and has even confronted Hazama when she discovers what he did to Noel.

Nago is Rachel's black, transmogrifying cat that speaks and acts just as snobbishly as her. He is often seen in umbrella form, but he can also morph into (and be used as) either a Lobelia (bat lance), a cannon, or a chair. It is possible that Nago is homosexual, due to his comments on Jin and Hakumen, such as "Just seeing a hot man in chains just makes me…" and saying that Jin is "just his type" much to Gii's discomfort and in Chronophantasma he states that Amane is "a cutie pie".

Platinum the Trinity is a girl who has three souls. She became a playable character starting with Continuum Shift II. A young girl with three souls named Luna, Sena, and Trinity Glassfille. Luna is a rude young girl who hates women with big breasts; Sena is a polite young boy who is always trying to calm down Luna; and Trinity is the spirit of one of the Six Heroes. Trinity's personality is locked within her Nox Nyctores, and she is only able to come to the surface for brief periods of time. This Nox Nyctores' full name is Arma Reboare: Muchourin, a staff which has the power to incarnate matter.

Platinum normally prefers to avoid violence and lives in the ruins of 5th Hierarchical City of Ibukido, but came to the 13th Hierarchical City of Kagutsuchi by request of Jubei in order to awaken Bang's Phoenix: Rettenjou. Platinum is seen watching over Ragna the Bloodedge, who is with Jubei all the time. Luna is very fond of Jubei, but harbors a deep hatred towards Ragna, most likely due to his connection with Jubei. Finally, Luna gets greatly irritated when Bang tells her that he will do anything to seduce Litchi, claiming that he is only interested by her breasts.

<hidden by spoiler settings>This Platinum was actually created to become Trinity's new vessel, however, before that Jubei found the two orphans, Luna and Sena from a research facility. For some reason, the two were still alive but their bodies were not capable of holding their souls in anymore. Instead of using it for herself, Trinity fused their souls together into the vessel and remained a ghost, tagging inside the Muchourin. Both Luna and Sena have always been aware of the third personality, Trinity herself as well.

Relius is Carl Clover and Ada Clover's father, and Ignis Clover's husband. He is a colonel in the Engineering Department for the Novus Orbis Librarium. He's also one of the antagonists along Hazama, and became a playable character in Continuum Shift Extend.

Relius was originally a researcher who studied the Boundary alongside Shuuichirou Ayatsuki, Celica and Nine's father. They were at a dead end until Terumi showed up, offering them a vast amount of information that allowed their research to progress. During an experiment however, they unknowingly unleashed the Black Beast and Relius was swallowed into the Cauldron. Relius somehow survived, and was sent forward 80 years into the future, to the year 2179. In the process, he lost his memory, but gradually started to regain it over the years, stating that the feeling was as exhilarating as placing books back on shelves (a personal pastime of his). After reuniting with Terumi, he continued working with him in secret, and during the timeskip to the present day meets and marries Ignis, which in turn leads to the birth of Carl and Ada.

Relius is the twisted, evil mirror image of his son Carl. While he is calculating and courteous like his son, he is cold and utterly devoid of empathy. His only true care in the world is his research. Relius is even willing to go so far as to kill gods for the sake of science – a curiosity which Terumi just so happened to pique. Carl, his son, hates him for taking Ada and his mother away. Carl spends a majority of his travels in pursuit of Relius. However, Relius does not even hesitate to attack his own son when confronted by him.

Bang Shishigami is a ninja from Ikaruga, and a playable character ever since the first game. He is the wielder of the Phoenix: Rettenjou, a giant 55-inch nail. After losing his home in the Ikaruga Civil War and his master Tenjou at the hands of Jin Kisaragi, Bang and his followers began living in Kagutsuchi waiting for the right moment to strike back at Jin and the NOL. There, he declares himself a hero of love and justice, and dedicates himself to exterminating evil and overturning injustice wherever he goes. Over time, Tenjou's teaching prevailed over him, and Bang develops a strict 'no-kill' policy, which means he would never stoop so low as to kill his enemies, even Jin, despite how much he hates him.
He is overzealous in every way, subtlety not usually at the forefront of his mind. However, his fiery spirit and will have earned him the respect of a few characters, most notably Hakumen. His first and foremost duty is to protect the citizens of Ikaruga, which was the reason why he also wants Ragna's bounty: to rebuild the glory of Ikaruga.

Bang can be quite over-exuberant, and he is prone to speeches and tangents as well as making dramatic entrances. He has a romantic fascination with Litchi, always willing to go charging in headlong if he sees someone making her upset. He is a man with great pride in his home and tolerates no ill words towards it or his master. Though many members of the cast ridicule him and think of him as annoying, he protects those he cares about (such as Carl and Tao) with his life, and has a heart of gold. He thinks of himself as the "Hero of Justice", and the one to punish all evil doers. Bang, however, possesses a lot of standards that display quite a bit of wisdom.

A trait that he shares with Litchi is his genuine love for children; he would do everything to protect them, and the sight of them being hurt badly and for no reason are one of the things that would tempt him to consider breaking his 'no-kill' policy. However, he also has a bad habit of instantly calling some of the children he saw as 'his apprentice'. Carl has begun to take that consideration well and nicely, but Platinum is highly annoyed at this treatment.

<hidden by spoiler settings>His Nox Nyctores has the power to sever connections with the Boundary, with the power to destroy other Nox Nyctores and stop the flow of seithr. In reaity, Tenjou's soul is sealed within it, which itself is the the core to Kushinada's Lynchpin. It's also revealed that it was built by Konoe A. Mercury herself.

Taokaka is a respected warrior of the Kaka clan, who is attempting to apprehend Ragna the Bloodedge and use the bounty to secure a new home-land for the Kaka, and is a playable character ever since Calamity Trigger. A resident of the Kaka Village and member of the Kaka Tribe, Taokaka is a catgirl, wearing a large coat that obscures her face, only exposing red eyes and a row of sharp teeth; whether or not this is her true face is still a mystery. She wants to get back the sky above her village, which was sealed off. She does not seem to refer to anyone other than herself by name and creates nicknames for people she meets. She is unable to recognize that Ragna, the "good guy", and "Rawgnya", the criminal, are the same person, though there are times she seems to know but does not care.

Taokaka is the personification of innocence in the BlazBlue world. She is a happy-go-lucky catgirl who only wishes the best for her friends and family. Her only desire is to protect those she holds dear to her heart, or who offer her food (in her mind anyone who offers her food is a good person).
Unfortunately, she is also the least intelligent character in BlazBlue. Like most cats, Taokaka's daily routine consists of eating and sleeping, and she can, and often will, forget anything she does or is told to do within three steps or seconds. Of course, it goes without saying that she is not totally dumb. Taokaka often gives nicknames to those she meets so she can try to easily remember them later. She does actually know who they are, but prefers the nickname routine.

Of course, much of her simple-minded traits can be compared to how a cat's mindset actually works, especially when it comes to how fascinated by things she can be (such as a pair of breasts) or how her mind tends to seemingly drift away from more serious things.

In the fourth-wall breaking mini-series, Teach Me, Miss Litchi! (which is not canon), Taokaka is studying under Litchi in order to become a great vigilante.

Torakaka is a member of the Kaka clan and the mentor of Taokaka. She is also a former village guardian, and is very knowledgeable about the current situation, as she is able to (seemingly) recognize Litchi being seduced by the Azure Grimoire in an injured Ragna's possession and stop her from acting on the impulse. Contrary to how Torakaka looks, she speaks quite dignifiedly and sparingly uses the feline verbal tic Taokaka has. Tager also comments on how much more clever she is than the rest of the Kaka clan.

Torakaka seems to be mature, intelligent, and a kind person. She cares for Taokaka, and helps her when she was a kitten by her hopes that she will become a better guardian to protect the Kaka Village.

Valkenhayn R. Hellsing is Rachel's elderly butler and trusted adviser who has served the Alucard family line for generations, as well as one of the Six Heroes. He is a playable character starting with Continuum Shift II. Valkenhayn has been the butler to the Alucard family of vampires for a great deal of years and was Rachel's father's, Clavis Alucard's butler before his death.

He possesses a sharp wit and is concerned for Rachel's well-being. Valkenhayn seems to be worried about Rachel associating with things below her class (particularly Ragna the Bloodedge, although others might apply), but he usually acts in a sophisticated and gentlemanly manner. Judging from comments frequently dropped by Rachel, he seems to have once been a vigilante himself. He has shown a savage temper on occasion, mainly seen during battle. During Continuum Shift he lost his temper after Hazama insulted Rachel, his voice deepened and his teeth sharpened into fangs.

Valkenhayn is also a unique Beastkin, being the only one of his kind, thus far, who is able to freely switch from being in a human form to a wolf form. As well as this, Valkenhayn is extremely unique in the fact that he exists outside of the logic, being the only living being outside of it. Although the reasons for it are unspecified, it's implied that the reason behind it is that Valkenhayn was produced via Sorcery, which is, in a sense, above Magic and therefore does not obey the rules of being within the logic.

Yuuki Terumi is the true primary antagonist of Blazblue series and a former member of the Six Heroes, as well as the creator of the Azure Grimoire. He is also the founder of both the Novus Orbis Librarium and Sector Seven, often manipulating both sides to reach his goals. He became a playable character in Chrono Phantasma.

Cruel, sadistic, selfish, and insane beyond measure, Terumi delights in the suffering of others, both physically and mentally, and relished pure chaos. He would provoke and manipulate others for his own amusement, and would ruthlessly torture anyone who irritated him or got in his way. Unsurprisingly, this has earned him the contempt of almost every character in the BlazBlue universe, most notably Ragna, Kokonoe, and Nine. However, he is prone to breakdowns when things don't go his way.

Terumi is the catalyst for most of the events happening and a reason for almost every character's hatred: he turned Arakune to his current form, betrayed his old comrades, killed the sister taking care of Ragna and co., kidnapped Saya, hurt Tsubaki in more ways than one, and so on. The only people he is on "good terms" with are Relius and his vessel, Hazama. Even Izanami, who is supposed to be his boss, is willing to give his head to Ragna in order to cooperate with him.

<hidden by spoiler settings>The reason Terumi is extremely strong is because he feeds upon everyone's hatred: the more people hate him, the stronger he gets. Because the Master Unit acknowledges him as an evil entity, he keeps getting stronger. However, Ragna uses this against him in their final battle as he makes Master Unit acknowledge him as the hero he used to be - a hero everyone loves and respects, and who is not hated by anyone due to the fact he was one of the saviors of the world, which in turn takes over more than half of Terumi's power away.

Λ-No.11- is an imitation Murakumo Unit found, experimented on and controlled by Kokonoe. She is a playable character in BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, Chronophantasma Extend and Central Fiction. Lambda was originally created by Relius Clover for the purpose of serving as a test subject for the experiments of the NOL's scientists. Lambda died during the painful experimentation and was disposed of, deemed a failure. She was later retrieved from Ibukido by Iron Tager and revived by Kokonoe. Kokonoe completely erased her memory, and as a result, Λ-No.11- is only interested in carrying out Kokonoe's orders.

At the beginning of her story in Continuum Shift which showed her past where she was in the middle of being experimented by scientists, Lambda was full of emotion and seemed to act slightly similar to Noel in some aspects. However, because her desperate pleas for help could not be heard, and because the scientists had taken their experiment on her to the extreme, Lambda had unfortunately died from the experiment. <hidden by spoiler settings>After ν-No.13-'s soul was salvaged and installed into Lambda's body, due to the remnants of Lambda's memories remaining in the body, Nu had temporarily mistook the memories as her own, which made her go into a panic as she was remembering the painful experiment that Lambda had gone through in the past. This forced Kokonoe to erase the memories within Lambda's body completely, turning Lambda into an empty shell. As a result, Lambda became emotionless, quiet, and only follows orders given by Kokonoe. Over the course of the story, however, she started to regain Nu's memories, remembering Ragna as a result. After having battled an illusion of her former self, she recovered her memories completely, and rushed to protect Ragna, albeit at the cost of her life.

Mu-12 is the true form of <hidden by spoiler settings>Noel Vermillion. Through Yuuki Terumi's ambitions, she fused with the true Azure, and awoke as the Sword of the Godslayer Kusanagi, someone who can possibly kill a God.
μ-No.12- is an emotionless killing machine who wants the world to be destroyed. She only acts based on Terumi's orders, and she believes that the world "hates her", and is filled with nothing but lies. <hidden by spoiler settings>However, after Noel gained control over her powers and transformation into Mu, she now retains her normal personality and emotions when in Mu's form. Upon transforming willingly, Noel noticeably becomes more "in control" of her emotions, as opposed to when she felt as though she blacked out when fighting using Bolverk. She is also shown to be more confident and outspoken, though she still has some degree of shyness and embarrassment regarding her rather revealing attire, particularly when facing Ragna, especially facing Kagura.

Dislikes: Ragna the Bloodedge

Hades Izanami is the main antagonist of the BlazBlue series, and the Imperator of the Novus Orbis Librarium. She is also a playable character in Central Fiction.
She is an immortal being, death incarnate. She is using Saya as a vessel. Her goal is to reduce everything in the universe to nothing. She appears to have a feud with Rachel Alucard.

Hades Izanami is devoid of all emotion and extremely literal-minded. She is obsessed with making the world die and will stop at nothing to accomplish her goal. The Goddess remarks that she can "feel" the strong attachment that the real Saya has towards Ragna. Throughout the game, she constantly mocks Ragna with Saya's voice in a playful manner. She is also shown to have little to no concern for her comrades, even to the point of offering Ragna Terumi's head in exchange for joining her side and eventually discarding both Terumi and Relius when they were of no further use to her. In addition, she has no true attachment to her title and announces to the entire world that she willingly hands the role of Imperator to Homura and would grant the "gift" of death to the world. She, like Relius, has a dislike of Hazama and his "playful" attitude, though it also could be out of Saya's proxy due to what Terumi did to her in the past.

<hidden by spoiler settings>Izanami is actually a living doll crafted by Relius, and the manifestation of the true Noel's Drive.

Konoe A. Mercury, more commonly known as Nine, is a witch, one of the Six Heroes, one of the Ten Sages and the previous wielder of Gigant: Take-Mikazuchi. The name "Nine" comes from her being the ninth member of the Mage's Guild's Ten Sages. Celica A. Mercury is her sister, Shuuichirou Ayatsuki was her father, and her mother is deceased. She is the lover of Jubei of the Six Heroes, and one herself, as well as the mother of Kokonoe. She was also the first person to achieve the rank of the Ten Sages while still being a student.

Konoe is a person who likes to do things her own way, a trait shared by her daughter. She is a kind-hearted individual who cares about her friends, especially her younger sister Celica, and can't say no to anything she asks from her. Although she seems to have a mature and serious personality, she can be somewhat impulsive and violent when angered, as shown when she attempted to use a fire spell on Bloodedge for annoying her. She was this way even with her lover, Jubei, before falling in love with him as well as rash, headstrong and independent. Unlike her daughter who is a whiz with science, Konoe had an ability, charm and prowess with the magical arts. Being the best in her field and from her expertise and leadership, it's easy to see why she responds to others the way she had, and these would psychologically determine her to be right-brained and eccentric, if not at least eclectic. She also has a poor sense of direction similar to her sister.

Saya is the younger sister of Ragna and Jin. Saya was born with a frail body, and throughout her life, she was bullied by her brother Jin. Her other brother, Ragna, was more caring, spending plenty of time with her. Jin grew jealous of the relationship Ragna and Saya shared, eventually attempting to kill her, two years after she gave Jin the Nox Nyctores, Yukianesa.

Saya, like Noel, has atrociously bad cooking skills, being able to turn simple jam into what could only be described as 'black sludge'.

If he is gone, the world ends immediately, and as long as Ragna is present in the world, the Unit keeps using the Phenomenon Interventions with hoping to meet him – that is the reason why the timeline looped between AD 2100/01/01 to 2199/12/31, until the Calamity Trigger broke the loops by saving him.

Trinity Glassfille was a member of the Six Heroes, and the true form of Platinum the Trinity who had her soul sealed within the Nox Nyctores, Arma Reboare: Muchourin.

Trinity is a very kind, cheerful and easygoing young woman. She was a good friend of Konoe A. Mercury, and was also quite close to Kazuma Kuvaru. She was shown to be affectionate towards him. However, she is strict when it comes to manners, and can be very frightening when angry. When Celica and Konoe inadvertently spilt tea over her, her gaze alone rendered them so scared that they ceased the quarrel, regardless of Trinity's usual smile.

After Terumi's betrayal, Trinity harbored immense guilt for Konoe's death and the repercussions that followed soon after to the point of being brought to tears while apologizing to Celica for what she had done.

<hidden by spoiler settings>In Central Fiction, she supposedly removed herself from the Muchourin in order to save both Luna and Sena from the injury Terumi inflicted on them in the finale of Chrono Phantasma, and is now tagging alongside Jin.

Dislikes: Everything else

ν-No.13- is a Murakumo Unit who was sealed in the Sheol Gate. She is a playable character in Calamity Trigger, Chronophantasma and Central Fiction. She appears in Continuum Shift as Λ-No.11-'s Unlimited form. She was programmed to terminate anyone she deems as hostile subjects that came near the Gate. ν-No.13- is also shown to have a split personality, split between an emotionless girl when around others, and a yandere when around Ragna the Bloodedge, though this may be how she was programmed to act. ν-No.13- wants to absorb Ragna and have him join her in destroying the world, because she, too, possesses a piece of the Azure Grimoire. When Ragna refuses to join her, she decides to take him by force.

Being a prime field device, Nu's emotions were sealed away, becoming little more than an emotionless machine who kills anyone that obstructs her programming or whom she determines to be hostile. When around Ragna the Bloodedge, however, her personality changes to that of a yandere who is absolutely infatuated with him. In her mind, Nu must have Ragna to herself, and anyone who gets in the way of her love must die. At heart, however, Nu is a sad and lonely girl who has endured years of nightmarish torture, clinging to her memories of Ragna to give her hope. It is for this reason that she hates humans, and wants to merge with Ragna to form the Black Beast.
