Name: Elle Ragu
Fighting Alias: Shadow Skill
Class: Sevalle, 59th generation
Hair: Blonde (manga), Red (TV series)
Seiyuu: Megumi Hayashibara
Comments: At the age of 14 she became a Sevalle. She is Gau Ban's adoptive elder sister. Has a taste for alcohol, eats a lot, and a soft spot for those who are alone in the world. Survived the life-threatening illness that killed her parents. She is the only female Sevalle alive.
Name: Gau Ban
Fighting Alias: Black Howling
Seiyuu: Akio Matsuoka
Comments: Gau is striving to become a Sevalle. He's a great admirer of Scarface and was raised by Elle after bandits killed his parents during a raid on his village. He is reluctant to fully utilize the power of Shadow Skill. He is the posse's beast of burden, maybe because he is the only male in the group -- but despite his slight figure, is able to carry all that the posse owns (two large vats and a some large bags tied on a wooden frame, backpack style). Sometimes the pack includes Elle as well, when she rides on top of their stuff.
Name: Faurink Maya
Fighting Alias: The Plasmatizer
Class: Sui Reme
Hair: Purple or Brown
Eyes: Red or Indigo
Seiyuu: Yuko Mizutani
Comments: Her name is also spelled as Follinkmaya in some subtitles; she's often referred to as Faury or Folli. Once known as Fia Akrana (Fear Arcana), she blamed her father's death on Elle and determined to avenge him by killing Elle. Three years and one duel to near-death later, the truth about Folli's father's death came to light; and now the girls are more like sisters than ever. Folli is married to the Juliannes Raze Reme Waaks F. Porelo.
Name: Kyou Ryu
Fighting Alias: ???
Class: Septia, Phantom Squad
Eyes: Purple or Magenta
Seiyuu: Ikue Ohtani
Comments: The entire Phantom Clan of Septia (demon beast catchers) were wiped out by a demon called the Moon King. Elle, Gau and Folli offered to help her catch the beast, and with their help, Kyou managed to defeat the Moon King using her Chulinks (a weapon used for catching demon beasts). Kyou decided very early on that Gau was worthy of her affection. Later, it is revealed that her grandfather, Gen Stol, the former leader of the Phantom Clan, is the twin brother of Iba Stol -- the current King of Kuruda.
Name: Vy Low
Fighting Alias: Scarface
Class: High Sevalle, 57th generation
Eyes: Hazel or Brown (Manga), Blue (TV series)
Seiyuu: Akio Ohtsuka (OVA), Yatsunori Matsumoto (TV series)
Comments: At the age of 16, he defeated the King of Kuruda, Iba Stol (aka Hawk Eye). In doing so, he set an example that every young warrior in Kuruda is intent on emulating. In the 2000 years of Kuruda's history, he is the strongest. From the very beginning, he shows a great interest in Elle and her adopted brother Gau, acting as a sort of unofficial "uncle" to both Gau and Screb Lowengren when the two begin to cross each others' paths. Together with Dias Ragu, Kai Sink, and Kain Phalanx, they were Kuruda's most fearsome warriors during previous Soulfan wars. He is married to Faulstis, bearer of Ordo Codex and daughter of a high official in Juliannes.
Name: Dias Ragu
Fighting Alias: Black Wing
Hair: Blond-brown (Manga), Dark Red (TV series)
Eyes: Green or blue
Seiyuu: Mitsuru Miyamoto
Comments: An expert warrior with steel boomerangs, Elle's older brother was a valle in training with every hope of becoming a sevalle when a plague swept through the village where the Ragu family was living. The plague killed the Ragu parents and left Elle (then eight years old) critically ill. So Dias gave up his valle training to hire out as a mercenary in the Kurudan army in order to earn money for Elle's medicines and foster care. During this time, he became friends with Scarface, Kai Sink, and Kain Phalanx. He is introduced in the TV series as living a solitary life as a master smith for weapons in a ghost town called Prorathan (Blorahan), and under the shadow of a wasting disease. Elle loves him dearly, even if she rarely gets to see him; and the feeling is mutual, as he adopts Gau and confides in the younger man his concerns for his baby sister.
Name: Screb Lohengrin
Fighting Alias: White Lightning
Hair: White or Silver
Seiyuu: Kappei Yamaguchi
Comments: Seen in minor roles in Shadow Skill parts 1 and 2. He is the personal apprentice to the Kuruda King, Iba Stol -- perhaps the King's ward? Upon hearing of Gau's emerging talent, Low challenged him at least twice. One challenge ended in a draw, the other ended in Gau forgetting all his angst and releasing the full power of Shadow Skill on the older boy. Now they are good friends, and two sides of an uneven love triangle involving Kyou. (Low likes Kyou, Kyou likes Gau. At least in the TV series. The manga has a different take on things.) He wears big, red, cherry-like earrings which play a role in Gau's most crucial fight at the end of the series.
Name: Kai Shink
Fighting Alias: Crimson
Class: Sevalle, 56th generation
Hair: Red (Manga), Green (TV series)
Seiyuu: Koyasu Takehito
Comments: His exact role in the Kuruda government isn't very clear -- but it seems that he is some sort of intelligence officer for the King. His particular skill is with throwing knives -- and it was in a duel with Vy Low that he slashed the latter's cheek, thus giving him the fighting name of Scarface. He is the only sevalle who is also a Raze Reme, a master of the power of Souma. As such, he is known as Silver Sword, and spends time in Juliannes. He is a friend of Waaks Porelo, Folli's husband, and likes taking care of bonsai.
Name: Iba Stol
Fighting Alias: Hawk Eye
Class: High Sevalle, 55th generation, King
Seiyuu: Masaharu Satou
Comments: Master of the Open Skills of the Kuruda School. Low is his favorite pupil, possibly a royal ward. Scarface defeated him in open contest, but this did not affect his kingship. As grave danger threatens Kuruda, he reveals his connection to Kyou, promising to be her protector at all times.
Name: Kain Phalanx
Fighting Alias: G
Class: Sevalle, 58th generation
Seiyuu: Kouji Tsuitani
Comments: Once a close friend and fellow fighter with Dias, Vy Low, and Kai Sink, Kain became obsessed with becoming the strongest fighter in Kuruda, at whatever price. This pushed him over the edge into madness, and when the King refused to answer his (presumably unlawful) challenge, G tried to kill the King. At this point, Scarface -- his best friend -- intercepted the assassination attempt and killed G with a single blow. However, G re-appears as an ally of the top ranks of the Soulfan army as it marches against Kuruda. This time around it is up to Gau to be the King's champion and defeat G. Their fight is a key element in forming Gau's character as a fighter.
