He is the Qwaser of Neodymium, often carrying a large bracelet strapped to his wrist containing said element, he can manipulate nearly anything metallic by channeling its magnetic properties.

Another member of the Adepts who happens to be the Qwaser of Oxygen. Yuu became a homicidal maniac after the training his church put him through as a kid, and his sister Aoi tried to support him until she was forcibly turned into a "Maria" for his use. Long story short, Aoi's latent powers awoke and she killed her captors, but one of those present was her brother Yuu, and the shock of the event somehow caused Aoi's mind to recreate Yuu as a split personality in her own body.
Despite supposedly being Killed Off for Real (twice), Kuchiba appears to have been resurrected a third time (in the manga, at least) to carry out Tanner's plan.

- Cold Sniper
- Monster of the Week (considering his screen time, Bit Part Badguys might fit better)
- Sociopathic Soldier
An enigmatic blonde-haired gentleman who appears to be manipulating both the Adepts and Athos. Though not exactly a Qwaser, he does appear to have some sort of magic powers with tarot cards he carries that allows him to do everything from Mind Control to summoning members of the Adepts to do his bidding. He seeks the Theotokos so that he can destabilize Europe and resurrect the Holy Roman Empire with Germany at its head.
The Qwaser of Gold
The leader of the Adepts whose true face has never been seen. His only real appearance in the story has been through possessing Tomo using a "golden nail" implanted somewhere in her chest that constantly drains her Soma and strengthens the Qwaser himself. He was the one who killed Sasha's older sister Olja, and apparently used Sasha's anger at him to launch an entire Evil Plan spanning years just so he could later use a large-breasted Japanese schoolgirl to gain the Blade of Maria through a special Faberge Egg and somehow use its power to change the world in his image.
There are hints in the anime and the manga that this Qwaser is actually a Catholic cardinal named Gregori.

The Qwaser of Carbon and the younger sister of Joshua, though she often looks down on him. She distrusts Tomo at first but slowly opens up to her after she steps in to help break up a fight between herself and Georg. In the anime, she immediately makes a move on Tomo's body after the first scene.
Jita often attacks using ultra-thin diamond strings that can cut through practically anything.
- Dark Action Girl
- Hidden Buxom: Without a bra.
- Idiot Hair
- Single-Target Sexuality: She seems to have fallen for Tomo after she stepped in and saved her from Georg.
The Qwaser of Cobalt and brother of Friedrich.

He constantly spends time cleaning the cobalt ornament attached to his hand, but said ornament allows him to focus gamma radiation into laser beams that can be used against his opponents.
Milk (a.k.a. "Whisper Bomb")

The female lead of the story who often walks around with a kendo shin'ai, she is Sasha's current partner and self-proclaimed protector of Tomo. Many Qwasers seek her out early in the story, thinking she knows where the Theotokos of Tsaritsyn is hidden.

- Incorruptible Pure Pureness
- Innocent Fanservice Girl: AND HOW
- Les Yay: With Mafuyu, Teresa, and Jita. Taken even farther in the manga when Jita had to sleep with her to quell the damaging effects of Tomo's half of the Sword of Maria. Episode 7 of Season 2 contained a short yet rather intense breast sucking sequence between her and Miyuri, culminating in an orgasm.
- Lethal Chef: Don't let her cook alone.

Teresa Beria (Voiced by Minori Chihara)
A nun who tends to the church at St. Mikhailov Academy, also Sasha's original Soma donor.

This is because her caretaker that she looked up to and her followers were raped and killed by the Qwaser of Chlorine right in front of her eyes.

A bully who continuously torments Mafuyu and Tomo along with Miyuri, but after Katja's appearance she became absolutely devoted to her instead.
- Aw, Look -- They Really Do Love Each Other: Despite Hana complaining sometimes about Katja being too cruel to her, she was willing to risk her life and throw herself into the fire that Katja couldn't get out of because of Oxygen's attack to save her.
- Corruption by a Minor: In short, Hana is an implied lesbian pedophile (the only person we see her exercising these urges with mostly revolves around Katja, so what extent this true is uncertain). Regardless, Katja manages to make her succumb to her suppressed predations and she becomes her Maria, though this ironically becomes a good thing, as Hana's former Jerkass exterior fades to reveal a surprisingly large heart of gold, ironically making this trope a good thing.
- Curtains Match the Window
- Faux Action Girl: Though in her defense, she's not good at it and knows it.
- Happiness in Slavery/Too Kinky to Torture
- Jerkass -> Jerk with a Heart of Gold
- Notably in the second season where she claims, it's wrong to leave a classmate behind. Now look back at her first appearance in Season 1.
- Kids Are Cruel
- Lolicon: Katja's introductory chapter in the manga implies that she's had pedophilic inclinations before meeting Katja, stating that she had a secret she could never share with anyone. In a way, her Sex Slave status to Katja gives her a relatively safe outlet for her desire.
- Noblewoman's Laugh: In the first episode of season II, she even Lampshades that she feel like Miyuri.
- Playing Against Type: Hard to believe she was voiced by Yoko Hikasa.
- Too Kinky to Torture: Katja and a villian in Season 2 find out, much to their dismay, there is no way in hell to degrade this woman, as all it does is turn her on.
Sasha's former "Maria" back in Russia, she came to Japan with Tasuku.

- Heroic Sacrifice
- Incendiary Exponent
- Kill It with Fire (Ootori can ignite the natrium/sodium in anything nearby).

- Well-Intentioned Extremist
Miyuri Tsujido (Voiced by Ayako Kawasumi)
Daughter of the Dean of St. Mikhailov Academy who enjoys lording her status over Mafuyu (and most of the class, by extension). She has an ongoing rivalry with Mafuyu and even lets Hana and Katja stay at her place (in the manga) just to spite her. Briefly became a superhero after stumbling onto an elemental circuit that gave her super strength, but otherwise has no idea what's really going on in the story.

- Alpha Bitch
- Girlish Pigtails
- Hair Decorations: She has two ribbons in her hair.
- Les Yay -- With Lizzy (in the first season anime). Gains a few levels in this with a few of the other girls by the second anime.
- Muggle: Oddly played with the anime. She still seems amazingly ignorant as to the full extent of what's going on despite multiple viewings of things that should have shattered the masquerade, but at the same time, especially after her mellowing she's seems to have some vague idea of the weirdness around her.
- Noblewoman's Laugh - ironically done when she's posing as a masked vigilante, but played straight a few times before and after showing her self-sacrificing True Colors.
- Rich Bitch: Though she turns somewhat Spoiled Sweet over time.
- Rose-Haired Girl
Noda Yuri, a.k.a. "Father Yuri" (Voiced by Susumu Chiba)
The priest at the church in St. Mikhailov Academy. He wears an eyepatch with a cross on it over his right eye. He is rumored to have been a soldier at one point, but now he mostly serves as the Mission Control for Athos in the area, leaving the fighting to Sasha or someone else.

- Estrogen Brigade Bait
- Eyepatch of Power
- Informed Ability: He's one of the better fighters of Athos...but he never fights.
- Mission Control

This is more evident in the OVA, though it must be noted that despite numerous opportunities to do something perverted, he's one of the few male cast members to date to have the highest ratio of keeping his hands to himself.
- Sexy Priest
- Tall, Dark and Handsome
Urada Oikawa (voiced by Sayaka Ohara)
The school nurse at St. Mikhailov Academy. She doesn't appear often, but seems at least somewhat informed about the Qwasers having helped Katja and Sasha get better after they suffered grievous wounds.

- Christmas Cake
- Defector From Decadence
- Hospital Hottie
- The Tease
Fumika Mitarai (voiced by Kana Hanazawa)
The meek and bullied little girl who somehow became the Class President. Has a crush on Sasha after she saw him save a cat from a tree, and kept the piece of iron he used to do it.
- A-Cup Angst -- In the Hot Springs Episode she was the only one who boobs didn't bounce much to her dismay
