From the "real" universe
Takiko Okuda / Genbu no Miko
Voiced by: Satsuki Yukino (Japanese, CD Drama, Game)
- Acceptable Feminine Goals: Takiko's governess never fails to remind her of this, and constantly nags her to act like a lady, or she'll never get any suitors.
- Also, Takiko's mother Yoshie insists they keep her illness a secret, lest it turn potential suitors away from her daughter.
- Action Girl (Unlike the other Mikos, Takiko was trained in self-defense in the real world. She's a naginata user, and gets one for her personal use in the Shi Jin Ten Chi Sho)
- All of the Other Reindeer (Doesn't fit in with the other girls at school, in part because she's the New Kid.)
- Defiled Forever: Takiko climbs into bed topless with the girl she found, hoping to absorb her fever and bring it down. However, as Uruki, this girl does not stay a girl, and Takiko freaks out, saying how she'd never be able to marry.
- Did I Just Say That Out Loud?: (She falls into this blunder sometimes.)
- Greater Need Than Mine: She always puts others' needs over hers. This plays into her low self-esteem and eventually "helps" cause her to be almost absorbed by Genbu. Only her dad's Mercy Kill stops it.
- Hair Decorations
- Heroic Self-Deprecation (Deconstructed: it's useful at times, but Takiko's low self-esteem is part of the reason Genbu consumes her soul.
- Ill Girl (Takiko already had tuberculosis (like her Missing Mom))
- Incurable Cough of Death
- Intergenerational Friendship: At age 16, she's good friends with a little girl 10 years her junior: Takao's daughter, Suzuno. Alias the future Priestess of Byakko

- Oblivious to Love: Towards Tomite.
- Parental Abandonment Her father is always on trips, and doing research, which turns out to be an attempt to save his wife, who is dying of tuberculosis.
- Precocious Crush (Her first love was a much older married man (Takao Ohsugi, Suzuno's father) She gets over it, though, and falls for Uruki)
- Plucky Girl
- Rags to Royalty
- Virgin Soul Sacrifice (When she summons Genbu, he will [attempt to] 'absorb' her, or consume her soul. )
- Tragic Hero
- Yamato Nadeshiko: Look at her page image, then look at the trope list and see that she has a plucky personality and a naginata
Voiced by: Tohru Ookawa (Japanese, CD Drama)
- Offing the Offspring (According to Fushigi Yuugi, he mercy kills the dying Takiko before commiting suicide. This stays true in the end, but the circumstances are different: since Takiko is dying inside the the Universe, he uses it to synchronize his and Takiko's lives and then kills himself, which is what kills her.)
- Parents as People (He is pretty cold to his Ill Girl wife and his Hot-Blooded daughter, but it's revealed that he does love them underneath. He eventually does admit he was wrong, apologize to Takiko and tell her that it was because he wanted to use the Shi Jin Ten Chi Sho to heal Mrs. Okuda)
- Good Parents: Despite being lethally ill, she did what she could to raise Takiko well. Takiko adores her in return.

- Troubled but Cute
- Warrior Prince
- Badass Long White-Haired Pretty Boy: Unlike Uruki and Urumiya, his hairstyle was made for the mere sake of flashing sparkles. (And yes, to keep himself warm too.)

In a premium drama, revealed the extra ability of Mind Reading if he uses his right eye to look at a person who's not looking at him. For the sake of others and himself, he uses an eyepatch to keep it under control.)
- New Powers as the Plot Demands: Even better, his eye ability was taken Up to Eleven when it's revealed that he can see through lifeless objects to obtain the object's history, and its owner's backgrounds as well. Through this method, he can understand people's entire historical background without them even aware of it, and has achieved a surprising Caught on Tape moment for the story plot to forward on.
- To sum it up, he's basically a Supernatural Surround-Dimension Retina-Display in High Definition.
- Minored in Asskicking: Totally minored if you realized he's actually the 3rd strongest in line (most powerful being the Urumiya Bros....ouch.) He just prefers to lay back and babysit for the most part.

- Sugar and Ice Personality (Normally a Stoic Woobie, but once you knew him you'll notice that he's a soft cookie baked in an oven.)
- Team Mom: He buys horses, he buys weapons, he manages money, he calmly solves teammates' disputes, all in the story's spare time.

- The Smart Guy
- Big Brother Bully: On Hatsui for the fun of it.

- Sibling Yin-Yang / Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling : Older bro Tegu is responsible, calm, thoughtful, and friendly, while younger bro Hagas is the foolish one, and reacts to issues in an extreme matter.
- Someone Has to Die: In order to fully combine the power of "Urumiya" as a whole, this move has to be done between the brothers themselves. You'll be surprised.
- Strong as They Need to Be / Purposefully Overpowered / Game Breaker: There's no other celestial warriors around the world at the time, the almighty Kutou Kingdom means NOTHING compare to the 1st generation superpower warriors, so Watase pulled out this card.

- Self-Sacrifice Scheme: As the twin who bares half of the power of Urumiya, the physically weaker in health due to his uncurable Soap Opera Disease, and fully understands that his older brother, Tegu has the more responsible and willing personality to uphold the celestial fate, Hagas has been preparing for his own death in order to transfer the full Urumiya resposibility to Tegu to have him support the Genbu Team for a long time, and eventually Hagas fullfilled it.
