The Forwards

Subaru Nakajima

File:Subaru 9167.jpg

Voiced by: Chiwa Saitou

A junior mage training under Nanoha. It's a dream come true for her, since she's a Nanoha Fan Girl. She has a big sister named Ginga Nakajima. She actually has two Devices -- a pair of armored roller-blades called Mach Caliber, and one gauntlet from a Armed Device pair owned by her dead mother, called Revolver Knuckle. Her fangirling gets in the way sometimes, and she often names her attacks after Nanoha's, although they look more like some attacks executed by GaoGaiGar. Later on, she is revealed to be a cyborg.

Subaru is usually partnered with the gunner Teana Lanster, who is her close friend and, again, possibly more than that.

By Striker S Sound Stage X, she has distinguished herself as a member of the TSAB's Disaster Relief branch, having earned the nickname of "The Silver Ace". The job has had some traumatic moments, such as having a man she was trying to rescue commit suicide in front of her. In spite of this, Subaru has retained her cheerful personality. Over the course of this Story Arc, she meets a new friend in the Mysterious Waif Ixpellia.

In Force, she joins the unit being assembled in response to the Eclipse. She has known Touma for some time and sees him as like a younger brother, hoping to make him part of her family after he leaves the facility that is taking care of him and completes one last trip to put his past behind him. She's troubled by the revelation that he's the suspect the TSAB is looking for, and resolves to confirm things herself.

Tropes related to Subaru:


  Teana: You're going to have to push hard! Put more power into it...

  • Dual-Wielding: Wields both Revolver Knuckles in the last episode of StrikerS, but in the fourth Sound Stage, admits that neither she nor Ginga are strong enough to do this like their mother could.
  • Eyes of Gold: When she activates her Combat Cyborg form.
  • Fan Girl: In the StrikerS manga, it is mentioned that she keeps a magazine clipping of Nanoha on her wherever she goes.
  • First-Name Basis: Tends to prefer going by this, and when Teana first called her Subaru, immediately responded by calling her "Tea".
  • Friend to All Children: Good at giving presentations on rescue crew work to students, and enjoys spending time with Vivio.
  • Full-Contact Magic: Subaru punches things as a method of delivering large, destructive blasts of magic.
  • Full Potential Upgrade: Shari upgrades Subaru's Intelligent Device to be able to handle the increased speed and power after Subaru embraced her inherent cyborg fighting techniques.
  • Genki Girl
  • Hot-Blooded: Everyone calls their attacks from time to time. She does it bigger, longer, and louder.
  • The Knights Who Say Squee: She decided to become a mage specifically because she wanted to be like Nanoha. Being able to train under her idol is a dream come true.
  • Large Ham: Whenever she shouts "DIVINE BUSTER!!!"
  • Lightning Bruiser
  • Mega Manning: Unsurprisingly given her high opinion of Nanoha, Subaru does add a few Nanoha-esque touches to her fighting style. Most notably, her modified version of Nanoha's Divine Buster.
  • Military Brat: Her father and older sister are in the Bureau, and her mother was killed in the line of duty. She encounters some suspicion that she’s taking advantage of connections, but Teana realizes that she wouldn’t be starting off training for the Ground Forces if she were.
  • A Minor Kidroduction
  • My Greatest Failure: Was once involved in fighting a fire at some point between StrikerS and Force, and despite her efforts, there were many deaths. She then resolved to become as strong as possible so she could save everyone she could.
  • Necktie Leash: A rare female victim during her days at the academy (when she wore a necktie with her uniform) when Teana reminds her that it’s her fault they’re seen as the “airheaded pair” because of a few clumsy mistakes Subaru made early on.
  • No One Could Survive That: Practically uttered by the lead Mariage in Sound Stage X after using her tank destroying Arm Cannon on Subaru. Naturally, she was wrong.
  • Opt Out: Averted. Her father visits her in the hospital in StrikerS Sound Stage 3 and recommends that she do so now that Ginga has been captured, but she insists on finishing what she's started and saving Ginga. He respects her decision, seeing that her resolve is sincere.
  • Not Quite Flight: Wing Road enables her to create paths in midair.
  • Plucky Girl: Her determination falters a bit now and then, but she always bounces back even stronger than before.
  • Power Fist: Revolver Knuckle.
  • Power Gives You Wings: Gear Excellion, which gives her a blue version of Nanoha's Accel Fin and increases her speed and jumping ability.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: An inverted example of this with Teana. Subaru has a blue color scheme, but displays most of the classic Red Oni traits.
  • Rollerblade Good: Mach Caliber.
  • Robotic Reveal: By losing a good chunk of her arm.
  • Shout-Out: Lots of them to GaoGaiGar. Hence her Fan Nickname, "GaoGaiGar-tan".
  • Shy Blue-Haired Girl: Thought of as this by other people and is timid sometimes, but can be pushy when she wants to be.
  • Skinship Grope: Squeezes Teana's breasts to try to wake her up in StrikerS.
  • Shorttank
  • Super Prototype: Subverted, her Vibration Shatter just happens to be very effective against the Cyborgs.
    • Although Quattro notes that it would probably be fairly damaging against ordinary humans as well.
  • Super Not-Drowning Skills: She's a very capable swimmer. In particular, she is capable of spending up to an hour underwater without an air tank.
    • From StrikerS sound stage 4: "I can swim up to 20 kilometres continuously, and I can dive without an air tank for up to an hour easily."
  • Super Soldier: Like all the combat cyborgs.
  • Sweet Tooth: Ice cream? "Suki suki daisukiiii!"
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Her and Teana.
  • Took a Level In Badass: All the Forwards do, but Subaru arguably goes the farthest, starting out as a girl who’s too timid to fight and eventually becoming a highly skilled mage.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Episode 17. She goes completely insane after witnessing her sister Ginga bloodied and being stuffed into a box. The result: "Gin-nee o...KAESE!"
  • World of Cardboard Speech: Episode 23.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

Teana Lanster

File:Tea 372.jpg

Voiced by: Mai Nakahara

A gunner mage. Her older brother was disgraced in a past mission; Teana's goal in becoming a mage was to prove that her family's strength is not to be underestimated. However, the fact that she has less innate magical ability than the other juniors causes her to push herself very hard. She attempts to put herself through Training From Hell, but she overworks herself and nearly causes a friendly-fire incident. She subsequently takes a more sensible approach to training, and becomes relatively Weak but Skilled. Her Intelligent Device is Cross Mirage.

She is usually partnered with Subaru, and cares for her quite a bit, though she won't admit it.

By the time of Striker S Sound Stage X she's already a respectable Enforcer of the TSAB and is the one in charge of the case in this arc. She finds a very competent temporary aide in Runessa, but despite her wish for the two of them to be partners, they understandably went their separate ways at the end since Runessa turned out to be the Big Bad. In Force, she investigates the Eclipse incidents with Fate and Shario, and also knows Touma.

Tropes associated with Teana:

Caro ru Lushe

File:Caro ru Lushe 9082.jpg

Voiced by: Mikako Takahashi

The youngest of the Forwards. She is a dragon summoner who was banished from her tribe because of how powerful her summons are. Even the TSAB refused her until Fate took her in. She is assigned to Fate's Lightning Squad, usually serving as the team's full back or summoning her Dragons using her device Kerykeion. She has two dragons: Friedrich - the one she usually summons - and Voltaire, who is only summoned rarely.

She is partnered with Erio Mondial, and seems to have a crush on him.

Tropes associated with Caro:

  • Bathtub Bonding: She actively sought to do this with Erio in an onsen in one of the Sound Stages, and even suggested that they bathe together again, much to his flustered embarrassment.
  • The Beast Master: Has two dragons; Fried obeys her commands, but Voltaire is harder to control, and rather than thinking of herself as Voltaire's mistress, Caro describes herself as like a priestess who asks for his power.
  • Dragon Rider
  • Expy: Of Kusuha Mizuha.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Her job both before and after Section Six is in environmental protection. In the StrikerS manga her ability to connect with wild animals is noted as a great asset in that field.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Somewhat sensitive about being fairly short compared to Erio. This only gets more noticeable with time as Erio grows like a weed, while Caro remains almost the same height.
  • Let's Get Dangerous: Until episode 17 Caro seems to be a pure support character. But then she summons Voltaire, who proceeds to go Godzilla on the attackers who had been wasting Section Six's defenses.
  • Power Gives You Wings
  • Rose-Haired Girl
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Poor Caro Ru Lushe has tons of different spellings for her name.
  • Summon Magic: Her other specialty. She can summon her dragons, but can also summon people to her location, as seen when she retrieved an immobilized Einhart in the mock battle in Vi Vid.
  • Unstoppable Rage: In episode 17 when Erio is badly injured and she sees their new home is being torn to pieces. She doesn't appreciate this.

Erio Mondial

File:Erio 1837.jpg

Voiced by: Marina Inoue

The only boy to be actually active in Season 3. Erio is revealed to be a product of "Project F", like Fate. For that reason, Fate adopts him so that he won't suffer the way she did as a child. He is a close range combatant and uses the lance-like device Strada.

He is close with his partner, Caro ru Lushe, and seems to have a crush on her.

Tropes associated with Erio:

  • Adorably Precocious Child: In StrikerS.
  • Badass Longcoat
  • Bishonen: In Vi Vid. Even more pronounced in Force.
  • Big Eater
  • Blade on a Stick: Strada is a spear.
  • Defusing the Tykebomb: The manga shows how they found him in the lab as a very young child. He was driven mad at being "nothing" and attacking everyone. Fate was able to calm him down.
  • Dragon Rider: Later in the series, he rides on Fried's back and by the end, he can ride Fried himself. He's even referred to as such unlike Caro.
  • Expy: Of Brooklyn "Bullet" Luckfeld.
  • Gratuitous German: His device Strada.
  • Fragile Speedster: He learned from Fate, and while he has a good selection of attacks, he isn't as physically strong as Subaru.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: In StrikerS, Caro was complaining about Erio "stealing her height", cut to Vi Vid and Caro barely comes up to his shoulders, cut to two years later in Force and Caro only comes up to his chest.
  • Informed Ability: He's the first to reach B-Rank, being there at the start of the series (unlike Caro, who starts at C+, and Subaru and Teana, who reach it some time between Episode 2 and 3), and is described as a natural talent, but has fewer impressive moments than his fellow forwards.
  • Not Quite Flight: Can propel himself through the air with Strada's rocket boosters.
  • One Head Taller: This phrase is used to describe his height in comparison to Caro’s in the Movie Sound Stage. He keeps getting taller after that.
  • Redheaded Hero
  • Replacement Goldfish: Like Fate, he was cloned to serve as a replacement for a child who had died.
  • Thanks for the Mammary: Erio & Cario's first meeting. Merely awkward for a bit, possibly because they're both ten.
  • The One Guy: Not counting Zafira, who's not human and inexplicably remains only in his wolf form for all of Season 3. In Sound Stage M3, he notes that some people envy him for being this, but that it's often difficult for him as seen in one episode where he impatiently waits for the female Forwards to get out of the shower. Further highlighted in chapter 11 of Vi Vid, where everyone else is having some fun in the onsen, Erio simply contents himself with helping Lutecia's mom prepare dinner as he's not a peeking pervert.

Vivio Takamachi

File:Vivio takamachi.png

Voiced by: Kaori Mizuhashi

Note: This section is for tropes introduced before Vi Vid. For the rest, see Vivio's entry in the ViVid character sheet.

A Mystical Waif originally found by the Forwards crawling out of the sewers while chained to a case containing a Relic. She wakes up looking for her mama and, before long, comes to identify Nanoha and Fate as her mother figures. However, she is later gets kidnapped by Jail and his Numbers and it is revealed that Vivio was actually the clone of the Sankt Kaiser, the saint king (actually queen) of Ancient Belka. In the final battle of StrikerS, she is forced by Quattro to fight Nanoha against her will. Eventually, mother and daughter are reunited after Nanoha unleashes her most comprehensive befriending to date. Thereafter, Nanoha formally adopts Vivio.

By Striker S Sound Stage X, she is a librarian of the Infinity Library, and is being taught magic by Yuuno. In spite of their involvement with her kidnapping, she has become great friends with Lutecia and the reformed Numbers. At the end of the Sound Stage, she makes friends with Ixpellia, a ruler from Ancient Belka.

Vivio is the main character of the ViVid manga.

Tropes associated with Vivio (pre-Vi Vid):

  • Clone Crystal Dragon Jesus
  • Cloning Blues
  • Distressed Damsel: Not her fault -- she was only six at the time.
  • Expy: Her status and role in the plot of StrikerS is very similar to Irui Ganeden in Alpha 2.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: In addition to her Mismatched Eyes, she is also copying her mother's hairstyle while in Adult Mode, with a single sideways pigtail.
  • God-Emperor: As the Sankt Kaiser of Belka, she is this by right if not in point of fact.
  • Happily Adopted: By Fate and Nanoha, which have to be the coolest adoptive parents around.
  • Has Two Mommies: Fate and Nanoha. According to one short side story she gives Nanoha presents on mother's day and Fate - on father's day, which she calls "second mother's day".
  • Improbable Age: A librarian in the Infinity Library in third grade. Lampshaded by Otto as being improbable in-universe.
  • Mismatched Eyes: Right eye green, left eye red - the traditional "boat lights".
  • Mystical Waif
  • Only One Name: Until she is adopted by Nanoha. She then takes on her family name in Japanese order, unlike most other Mid-Childian names, which are in Western order.
  • Painful Transformation: In StrikerS, her forced transformation into Sankt Kaiser form is extremely painful.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Though not by her own will.
  • Picky Eater: Dislikes green peppers at first, but gets over it by the time Riot Force 6 disbands.
  • Plot-Relevant Age-Up: For the final battle.
  • They Call Me Mister Tibbs: Initially insisted on not being called "your majesty", but eventually comes to accept people like Otto and Deed, and later, Chantez doing it with her.


Lutecia Alpine

File:Lutecia 4484.jpg

Voiced by: Natsuko Kuwatani

A summoner with the ability to summon insects. She helps Scaglietti in order to find Relic XI, which she needs to awaken her mother from her coma. After the battle, she lives on an isolated world with her mother.

Tropes associated with Lutecia:


File:Agito 6809.jpg

Sword Spirit of Blazing Flame

A fire elemental Unison Device who works with Lutecia's group. She was found by them in a research facility, that they raided and taken in by Lutecia's request. She typically serves as Zest's unison and later, Signum's. She becomes part of the Yagami family after the events of StrikerS.

Tropes associated with Agito:

  • Cute Little Fangs
  • Fiery Redhead: Literally, since her powers are fire-based.
  • Fusion Dance: With Zest and later Signum. Unsurprisingly, she's much more compatible with the latter.
  • Genki Girl: As of Sound Stage X, her personality is... much more upbeat than in the StrikerS anime.
  • Good Costume Switch: In Vi Vid and Force, she wears a one-piece Barrier Jacket that bears some resemblance to Signum's, in contrast to her fairly skimpy StrikerS outfit.
  • Kinky Cuffs: Works well when put in the same room as her new, dominant master, Signum.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: She's only truly loyal to Zest and Lutecia, not Scaglietti. That just happens to put her against Section Six. Switches sides before the end of the final battle when Zest asks Signum to take care of her.
  • No Name Given: At least until Lutecia gives her one. It only takes 37 attempts to get one that Agito agreed with.
  • Playing with Fire
  • The Rival: Initially hated Rein for having a Lord while she did not, but after joining the Yagami family, this becomes a sort of friendly sibling rivalry.
  • Tsundere: Typically somewhat irritable toward the Numbers, but more affectionate toward Lutecia and Zest. Shows a dere side towards Signum in Force, when complimented on the quality of her work.

Zest Grangaitz

File:Zest 1491.jpg


  "What about the justice of ours that we spoke of. Where is it now?"


A knight who was formerly part of the TSAB. He and his team were killed, while investigating the Combat Cyborg project. It later turns out they were set up to test the first batch of Combat Cyborgs and higher level Gadgets. The Zest in StrikerS is a clone of the original, created by Scaglietti. He wishes to find out why he and his subordinates were betrayed.

Tropes associated with Zest:

Jail Scaglietti

File:Scaglietti3 2287.jpg

Voiced by: Ken Narita

Having obtained the fruit called knowledge, a burning ambition was ignited in his heart. And so, he sneered at the world and experimented with it.
Cinque, Striker S Sound Stage X Disc 2 Track 07, "Solitary Thoughts"

The Big Bad of the third season. A Mad Scientist with a passion for biological manipulation and the lost, forbidden magics and technology of Ancient Belka and Al Hazred, he's also an Artificial Human created by the TSAB Council under the project "Unlimited Desire", which moulded that passion into him. While an interdimensional-criminal for his science-related crimes, he is secretly under the TSAB's funding and employ in their hopes of acquiring Lost Logia level weapons. He plans and eventually launches a surprise, wide-scale terrorist attack on the Time-Space Administration Bureau, succeeds in destroying several key installments such as the Ground Forces HQ, and almost succeeds in taking down the entire TSAB itself if it wasn't for the efforts of Riot Force Six.

While a Mad Scientist to the core, he has a soft spot for his twelve Numbers, whom he regards as his masterpieces and treats with kindness and care. While several of the Numbers has since joined the Time-Space Administration Bureau, he has no feelings of ill will towards them for their decision and they still consider him as their kind and passionately-driven genius of a father.

A very dangerous individual, he is currently incarcerated in the maximum security orbital prison of uninhabited world No. 9, Gryuen. In short, Jail is in... jail.

Tropes associated with Jail:

The Numbers


He collected all kinds of knowledge, from the legacy of Ancient Belka to the magic and technology of every time and place, and demonstrated their immense power by creating life. And the 12 daughters who served as his greatest masterpieces were born and started a revolution.
Cinque, Striker S Sound Stage X Disc 2 Track 07, "Solitary Thoughts"

These twelve Combat Cyborgs created by Jail Scaglietti serve as the Quirky Miniboss Squad. They are unique in that they do not use any of the conventional types of magic or devices at all, instead relying on their Inherent Skills and specialised equipment, which are completely unaffected by anti-magic fields.

Tropes common to the Numbers:


File:Uno 9625.png

The only number not to wear the standard blue bodysuit, Uno is the first of the numbers, and an Opposite Sex Clone of her creator. Her powers largely relate to the discreet gathering of information. Also does the Doctor's hair. Appears to be a little suspicious of Quattro, for good reason.

Tropes associated with Uno:


File:Due 534.png

A shapeshifter assassin with artificial claws. Especially ruthless. Regarded as a role model by Quattro. Killed by Zest after killing Regius.

Tropes associated with Due:


File:Tre 250.png

The combat leader of the numbers. She can fly by means of three pairs of ethereal wings. She is a match for Fate in speed, but, as it turns out, not much else. She can use her wings as weapons in melee but lacks the attack power and distance attacks of the original model.

Tropes associated with Tre:

  • Aloof Big Sister: Tends to chastize her younger sisters for their failures, but it's suggested in her Sound Stage X character profile that she also worries about the ones who are free. She also seems to consider Fate as part of her family, despite their... conflicting relationship.
  • Boobs of Steel: She's the most endowed of the Numbers, and also one of the most dangerous in a straight-up fight.
  • The Dragon: One of the stronger Numbers, and Fate is forced to deal with her before she can capture Scaglietti.
  • Eyes of Gold
  • Flight: One of the few Numbers capable of independent flight.
  • Fragile Speedster: Though not nearly as much as Fate or Erio.
  • Male Gaze: We see her backside before we see her face.
  • Perpetual Frowner
  • Power Gives You Wings: Ride Impulse causes small purple wings to form on her wrists and ankles.
  • Super Strength: Her added muscular power is ranked as "S+".
  • Tall, Dark and Bishoujo: She hits the majority of the common attributes with her aloof demeanor, attractive looks, and impressive height (second-tallest character in the series, behind the towering Zest). The only thing that doesn't fit the trope is her short hair.
  • You Gotta Have Purple Hair


File:Quattro 2435.png

Voiced by: Chiwa Saitou


  "A weak life that can't do anything is no different from an insect's. No matter how many you kill, more will just keep being born. Playing with them and abusing them, throwing them in a cage and watching them suffer... It's so much fun!"


Illusionist and electronic warfare expert. Her cutesy appearance and personality belies the truly nasty piece of work underneath.

Tropes associated with Quattro:

  • The Chessmaster: Smug Snake status aside, Quattro's not a novice at chess-playing. And people are her preferred pawns.
  • Dragon Their Feet: Justified. Direct combat isn't her thing, so she was in charge of operating the Cradle and was hiding away in the most inaccessible part of the ship.
    • Dragon Ascendant: She was Jail's backup plan in the event he got caught and all his other cyborgs were defeated. Like all of them she carried his clone in her womb, and could/would have used it to create a mini-him had Nanoha not been around.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Her first appearance consisted of her disguising a fleet of gadget drones from Riot Force 6's sensors, and her first spoken words could basically be translated to "dance puppets, dance!":

  "These lies and illusions are going to make you dance for me."



File:Cinque 973.png

Voiced by: Marina Inoue

In spite of her number, Cinque is actually slightly older than Quattro, having been activated first despite being completed second. One of the more combat-capable Numbers and the one responsible for killing Zest eight years before StrikerS, in a battle which cost her an eye. Cinque is calm, soft-spoken, and rather protective of her younger sisters. Her Inherent Skill, Rumble Detonator, allows her to make metal objects explode, as well as being able to materialise throwing knives. In Vi Vid, she seems the most pro-active of the former Numbers in law enforcement, and has a thing for oversized jackets.

Tropes associated with Cinque:


File:Sein 9856.png

Voiced by: Kaori Mizuhashi

Able to swim through solid matter, and make any person or object she holds do the same. In spite of her goofy personality, she is one of the more effective of the Numbers, especially when they need rescuing.

Tropes associated with Sein:


File:Sette 3501.png

Voiced by: Natsuko Kuwatani

One of the last Numbers to be activated, Sette is also the most robotic and subservient of the twelve, and is the only one of the younger sisters not to undergo a Heel Face Turn, although it is suggested that she, unlike Tre, Uno and Quattro, is undergoing a rehabiliation program in prison. Capable of flight, she complements Tre's melee abilities with her strong distance attack.

Tropes associated with Sette:


File:Otto 876.png

Voiced by: Shizuka Ito

Otto is a boyish Number whose looser bodysuit, masculine name and mode of speech tend to cause confusion about her gender. Her Ray Storm ability makes her a powerful distance combatant, but she lacks defensive abilities. She and Deed are considered to be "twins". They and Sette were the last of the Numbers to be activated.

Tropes associated with Otto:

  • Beam Spam: Her IS, Ray Storm shoots devastating energy rays.
  • Bifauxnen: Even some of Otto's sisters were unsure of Otto's gender, because Quattro told her and Deed to keep it a secret. In the manga it's also mentioned that Deed has been instructed to help Otto bathe, separately from all the others. It doesn't take too much imagination to figure out what Quattro's trying to do here.
  • Bokukko
  • Cross Dresser: In Vi Vid, she's seen wearing a male butler uniform as part of her job for the Saint Church.
  • Curb Stomp Battle: Easily defeats Shamal and Zafira with Deed's help during the attack on Riot Force 6's headquarters. In the final battle, Shamal and Zafira take her by surprise, and capture her before she has a chance to attack them.
  • Emotionless Girl: Opens up a little by Vi Vid, though.
  • Tomboyish Name: Justified due to the Numbers' names being based on Italian numbers.


File:Nove 1917.png

Voiced by: Chiwa Saitou

Angry and aggressive, Nove has magic rocket-powered rollerblades with counter-rotating rings and a magic Power Fist like Subaru. Following her Heel Face Turn, in Vi Vid she has taken an active interest in martial arts, and acts as Vivio's Strike Arts instructor. She can also now transform between her civilian and combat form, like the regular magical girls with a device called Jet Edge.

Tropes associated with Nove:

  • Alliterative Name: For extra alliterativey fun, both her designation and personal name. Number Nine, Nove Nakajima.
  • Anger Born of Worry: Gets angry with Subaru for making her worry during the climax of Sound Stage X.
  • Arm Cannon: Mounted.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Subaru
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Becomes fairly close to Teana after losing to her, noting that it's thanks to her that she's on the path to redemption.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Subaru -- the two have very similar equipment and abilities. It doesn't help that Subaru and Nove are genetically sisters, by virtue of being based on Quint's DNA.

 Dieci: When Nove is in her pushy mode, you can really tell she's Subaru's sister.

  • Eyes of Gold
  • Fiery Redhead
  • Moral Myopia: Gets angry when Subaru injures Cinque and swears vengeance on her, but conveniently forgets that Cinque had helped severely wound and abduct Ginga, causing Subaru to enter her Unstoppable Rage.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Of the angry type, though she mellows out a bit between StrikerS and Vi Vid.
  • Power Fist
  • Purely Aesthetic Glasses: Apparently wears them in Vi Vid, and they look surprisingly good on her.
  • Rollerblade Good: With leg gauntlets similar to Revolver Knuckle.
  • Sibling Seniority Squabble: Finds it hard to accept that she's Subaru's younger sister.
  • Tsundere: Despite often being irritable, she often shows a softer side toward those she cares about, like Cinque and Vivio. Subaru even points out that she's irritable around her, but nicer around her father and the rest of the people at the correctional facility.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: Averted with Ingvalt, though she was in her teenage form at the time.
  • Xanatos Gambit: Planted a tracker on Ingvalt, during their fight, so they could catch her later if she lost.


File:Dieci 3448.png

One of the more morally conflicted of the Numbers, for which she is mocked behind her back by Quattro. Dieci basically lost the Superpower Lottery and is stuck with carrying [1] around. Nice girl, though.

Tropes associated with Dieci:

  • The Atoner: Has a longer sentence (15 years) than any of the other reformed numbers besides Cinque, but still resolves to atone for what she has done.
  • Cold Sniper: Subverted -- in spite of her apparently cold demeanor, she turns out to be quite conflicted about Jail's actions.
  • Curb Stomp Battle: Towards the end of StrikerS, Nanoha knocks out Dieci with a single Excellion Buster after she activates the first level of the Blaster system.

  Dieci: Is she really human?



File:Wendi 8708.png

Voiced by: Marina Inoue

A cheerful girl with a somewhat silly hairstyle, Wendi carries around a surfboard that serves as a gun, a shield, or a hoverboard. A versatile Number who is unfortunately not especially good in any one role. She and Sein are considered the most "human" and carefree of the Numbers, sometimes to the irritation of the others.

Tropes associated with Wendi:


File:Deed 9828.jpg

Voiced by: Shizuka Ito

Otto's "twin". A dual-wielding close combat specialist who is extremely polite to most people. Joins the Belkan Saint Church after her Heel Face Turn.

Tropes associated with Deed:

Other TSAB staff and Belkan Saint Church

Ginga Nakajima

File:Ginga 5255.jpg

Subaru's beautiful, level-headed older sister, and later, also the older sister of Cinque, Nove, Wendi, and Dieci. She serves in Battalion 108 under her father, and is an investigator. Like Subaru, she has two Devices - a pair of rollerblades named Blitz Caliber, and the left gauntlet of their mother's Revolver Knuckle.

Tropes associated with Ginga:


  Subaru: (In reference to the giant pile of empty lunchboxes behind Ginga) You don't seem to be eating much today, Gin-nee.

  • Boobs of Steel: Notably better endowed than Subaru and proceeds to kick her younger sister's butt in one of the training episodes. Fortunately, Subaru later manages to "befriend" the brainwashed Ginga through a combination of determination and Evil Is Dumb.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: After being beaten to almost death and kidnapped by the Numbers, she is brainwashed by Scaglietti and forced to fight against Subaru.
  • Cool Big Sis
  • Cyborg: Like her sister.
  • Face Heel Turn: Due to brainwashing.
  • First-Name Basis: Proposes this for Runessa, whom she's met relatively recently, as a way of making it clear whether Rune's referring to her, her sister or her father.
  • Full-Contact Magic
  • Neck Lift: Does this to Subaru during their battle. Subaru managed to escape and do an attempted counter, which earned her a one-handed slam into the ground.
  • Power Fist: Revolver Knuckle.
  • Redemption Promotion: The other way around - brainwashed Ginga was unable to use any of her learned magical abilities. She could only use her Inherent Skills.
  • Rollerblade Good
  • Sixth Ranger: While working with Fate on the Jail Scaglietti case, she takes part in combat training with RF6, and takes part in one of their missions.
  • This Is a Drill: One of Ginga's attacks, which has been given the rather apt Fan Nickname "Ginga Drill Breaker".
  • You Are Number Six: While brainwashed, she wears a bodysuit like those worn by the Numbers, bearing the numerals "XIII". Additionally, Jail refers to her and Subaru as "type-0 prototypes", and some of the imprisoned numbers call her "Thirteen" in English.
  • You Gotta Have Indigo Hair

Genya Nakajima

Subaru and Ginga's father, a Major and leader of the 108th Battalion, where Hayate served at some point between the airport fire and the present.

Regius Gaiz

File:Gaiz 5492.jpg

A high-ranking general in the Bureau’s Ground Forces and old friend of Zest. He opposes the creation of Mobile Division 6, and tries to get it shut down. It’s revealed that he was one of Scaglietti’s primary contacts in the Bureau.

Tropes associated with Regius:

  • Beard of Evil
  • Being Evil Sucks: Realizes this when he finds out that Zest is looking for him.
  • Fat Bastard
  • For Great Justice: His original motivation. He told Zest that because he has no magical power, he will strive to gain authority in order to help protect justice, but ultimately lost sight of that goal along the way.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Due runs him through with her claws while disguised as a Bureau officer.
  • Interservice Rivalry: Tries to get Section 6 shut down and believes that the Navy keeps getting all the good mages.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: His desire to defend Midchilda from terrorist attacks drove him to support Jail's research in the hope of increasing the power of the Ground Forces. Needless to say, this was a bad idea.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Killed by Due during the final battle.

Auris Gaiz

Regius' assistant and daughter, pictured with him. Loyal to Regius and holds just as much contempt on Section 6 as he does.

Tropes associated with Auris

  • My Commanding Officer Right or Wrong: She sometimes questions Regius' decisions, particularly building the Einherjar and his absolutist stance on criminals, but stands by him and tells Hayate that she's in no position to question his contributions to the Bureau.

Shario Finieno

Tropes associated with Shario:

Vice Granscenic

Voiced by: Yuuichi Nakamura

A marksman and helicopter pilot for Riot Force 6.

Tropes associated with Vice:

  • Friendly Sniper: Cheerful, personable, laid-back, and can snipe the head of a running target from a moving helicopter even though there's an ally obscuring his line of sight.
  • I Can Still Fight: Goes out to fight in the final battle despite having been unconscious for a week.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Is able to hit Deed inside a building from a distance where neither she nor Teana can see him.
  • My Greatest Failure: As a result of a missed shot on his part, his little sister was blinded in one eye, resulting in a Heroic BSOD and a severe reluctance to ever snipe again afterwards. Both of them get better in time for the final battle.
  • Sempai-Kohai: Teana and Alto refer to him as their sempai in Striker S Sound Stage X.
  • Weak but Skilled: He has even less magical power than Teana, but is a formidable marksman nevertheless.

Carim Gracia

Voiced by: Nao Takamori

The leader of the Belkan Saint Church. She is a close friend of Hayate, whom she views as a younger sister. During StrikerS, Carim is one of Riot Force 6's sponsors, along with Chrono and Lindy.

Tropes associated with Carim:

  • Cassandra Truth: Regius Gaiz continually ignores the Church's warnings about Jail's attack on the Ground Forces HQ.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: In contrast with Regius Gaiz.
  • Vagueness Is Coming: Her ability, Prophetinschriften, was clearly made with this trope in mind. It allows her to see the future... in the form of ancient Belkan poems. Needless to say, the poems are extremely difficult to translate and interpret accurately.

Schach Nouera

File:Schach 3928.jpg

Carim's personal assistant and a nun in the Saint Church. She is also friends and sparring partners with Signum.

Tropes associated with Schach:

Voiced by: Daisuke Ono

An inspector for the TSAB. He was adopted into Carim's family in his childhood, and is also good friends with Chrono and Hayate. He has the rare Belkan skill known as Infinite Hunt, which summons magical dogs that can be used for reconnaissance and combat.

Tropes associated with Verossa:

  • Badass in a Nice Suit: He is always seen wearing a suit.
  • Brilliant but Lazy: Often skips or is late for work, but is an excellent investigator.
  • Hell Hound: His special ability, Infinite Hunt, allows him to summon whole packs of ghostly green dogs.
  • Internal Affairs: Inspectors like him are assigned to each branch, independent unit, and administrated world to conduct investigations into potential abuse of power by Bureau officials. Verossa in particular is assigned to Riot Force 6, which is staffed with a lot of ex-criminals.
  • Mind Probe: Used on Uno.
  • You Gotta Have Green Hair
  1. Seriously, that's what it's called.
