Voice Actors: KAORI (Japanese), Wendee Lee (English)
Marin is an orphan who was abandoned as a baby and raised by the poor but loving Asagi couple. At the start of the series she is a thirteen-year-old seventh grade student with a wild imagination, lots of energy and an optimistic attitude. Her peaceful life changes dramatically when she suddenly finds herself the target of killer aliens called Monomakia. Fortunately she meets Melan Blue, a powerful and mysterious being who becomes her protector. Soon Marin must deal with persecution from her classmates and increasing strains on her relationships with her family and friends. She gradually learns the reason the Monomakia are after her, the connection between Earth and Brigadoon, and the role she must play to save both worlds from destruction. On top of all this, she forms a powerful bond with Melan, whose fate seems to be bound to hers.

Moe is Marin’s classmate and best friend. Rich in dollars but poor in health, she is a wallflower at school and a regular in the nurse’s office. Her mother is overprotective and doesn’t approve of her associating with the less fortunate Marin, forcing Moe to make difficult choices in order to maintain their friendship. Despite her limitations, Moe goes to great lengths to help Marin and tries to help her with her unusual challenges however she can. When it comes to Monomakia, she’s a bit envious of Melan’s ability to protect Marin from danger as well as the amount of time he spends with her.

Makoto Alo (aka Aloma)
Voice Actors: Hikaru Midorikawa (Japanese), Dave Wittenberg (English)
Makoto Alo is an enigmatic young boy who seems to know a lot more about Brigadoon and Monomakia than a normal person should. On first meeting him Marin assumes he is a historical observer from the future, which seems to be true as he tells to keep this a secret and often knows about things before they actually happen. On their second meeting they introduce themselves more formally, and Marin gives him the nickname Aloma, which he keeps. He spends most of the series observing events from the background, commenting on what’s happening and only becoming directly involved much later on.
- Accidental Pervert: In the anime Marin jokingly accuses him of this when he points out that her underwear is showing. In the manga he walks in on her while she's naked.

- Blue Eyes: Type 1 (beautiful and innocent).

- Fish Out of Temporal Water: He comes to the past from the future.
- Free-Range Children: He seems to have no parents and no home, yet it's never a problem for him.
- Greek Chorus: Never addresses the audience directly, but his commentaries are rarely heard by the rest of the cast.
- In-Series Nickname: Once Marin starts calling him Aloma so does everyone else.
- Hikaru Midorikawa: His Japanese voice actor.
- Male Frontal Nudity: In the bath house episode when his Modesty Towel falls off. The viewers don't see what's under it, but Isshin does and seems impressed.
- Mysterious Watcher: Overlaps with The Watcher on the occassions that he gives the heroes helpful information.
- New Transfer Student: In the manga.
- No Sense of Personal Space: In their second meeting, he leans pretty close to Marin while he's showing her how his name is written. There's moments where he gets too close in the manga, too.
- Oracular Urchin: Somewhat justified. Since he's from the future he would naturally have knowledge of past events.
- Promoted to Love Interest: In the manga, for Marin.
- Sweet Tooth: Nearly all the food we see him eating is some type of candy, pastry or other form of junk food.
- Together Umbrella: Played with when he first meets Marin. It's a rainy day and he has an extra umbrella, so he gives it to her.

Voice Actors: Ryoka Yuzuki (Japanese), Wendee Lee (English)

Shuta is a 75-year-old inventor and Mike is his 22-year-old American assistant. Practically always together, they both have their fair share of quirks and are perhaps the oddest residents in the tenement house. When Monomakia start coming after Marin, they waste no time trying to invent devices to protect her from them. Unfortunately, most of these devices are impractical if not totally useless.

- Einstein Hair: Shuta.

Voice Actors: Hochu Otsuka (Japanese), Tony Oliver (English)
Melan is Marin's self-proclaimed bodyguard and a type of Monomakia called a Gun-Swordsman, due to having those weapons in place of hands and his skill in using them. Marin found him at a shrine near her house where he had been asleep for a hundred years inside a tiny blue ampoule. He originally comes from Brigadoon, where he once belonged to a group of three Gun-Swordsmen, but his former comrades consider him a betrayer for leaving the group on a secret mission, the nature of which he does not reveal to anyone for a long time. Melan is a very tall, strong, and imposing figure who takes his mission very seriously. At first he is fairly unemotional and protects Marin mainly from a sense of duty, but over time he grows to care about her and the human world very personally.
- Arm Cannon: Has one on his left arm.
- Big Eater: He can scarf down up to fifty bowls of rice in one sitting.
- Blade Below the Shoulder: Has one on his right arm.
- Chaste Hero: Melan qualifies as this due to his lifetime of intense training, being a dedicated bodyguard and his blunt honesty. He tends to catch Marin off guard with his actions, whether he's naively grabbing her the wrong way or kissing her to neutralize the effects of a hallucinogen or telling her what she means to him, making her blush by his blunt yet "platonic" confession.
- The Comically Serious: Picture a robotic alien warrior seated at the dinner table reading the newspaper and you'll get the idea.
- Healing Factor: Has rapid body regeneration, and even his armor and weapons can repair themselves if they break.

- I Will Protect Her: Toward Marin, of course.

Voice Actors: Yuuji Takada (Japanese), Bob Johnson (English)
Pyon (pronounced Paion) is the strongest of the Gun-Swordsmen and a former friend of Melan who is now his enemy. He is a noble fighter and follows a strict code of honor, confronting his opponents directly. He has no problem killing people who get in his way, but he’ll give them a fair warning first. Pyon regrets having to fight Melan, but considers him a traitor and intends to bring him to justice.

- Good Is Not Nice: He's on the side that's trying to save the world, but his methods are questionable.
- Honor Before Reason: Takes honor so seriously that he'd rather kill Melan in a fair fight.

- Master Swordsman: According to Melan, and he does prefer using his sword to his gun.
- The Paladin: He certainly considers himself to be this and play the part pretty straight.
- Pride: The word 'proud' shows up often in his dialogue, so it's clearly a big deal for him. It's also his greatest weakness.
- Right Hand Versus Left Hand: If he knew the reason for Melan's 'betrayal,' he wouldn't be so determined to kill him.
- Sleep Mode Size: His ampoule is the only one we never see.

Voice Actors: Kae Araki (Japanese), Wendee Lee (English)
Erin is the only female among the Gun-Swordsmen. Like Pyon she is a former friend of Melan who is now his enemy, but is far more angry and violent toward him. Fierce and ruthless in battle, she doesn’t care if innocents get hurt and will settle for nothing less than total victory. Perhaps the true reason she’s so angry with Melan is because she had special feelings for him in the past.

- Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: Pink and purple, just in case you couldn't already tell she's a girl.

- Wendee Lee: Her English dub voice actress.

Poikun is the second Monomakia ally Marin finds on Earth. Designed for transport over land and through water, he has very few offensive abilities but is quite helpful when someone needs to escape or be taken to safety. He's also very cute and friendly, more like a pet than a bodyguard.

Kushatohn is the third Monomakia ally Marin finds on Earth. Designed for combat, she is a gigantic beast and very fierce in both nature and appearance.

Brigadoon Central Assembly
Voice Actors: Mayumi Shintani (Japanese), Wendee Lee (English)
Lolo is a small, feline alien who showed Marin where Melan’s ampoule was located. He tends to pop up out of thin air and in the oddest of places, and doing the oddest of things.

It is later revealed that he serves Brigadoon as the Chairman of the Life Improvement Committee.
