File:Xenogears elements 4105.jpg

The Elements

Kahran Ramsus' elite personal squad. Group is composed of Dominia, Kelvena, Tolone and Seraphita.

File:Gazel01 2420.jpg

Gazel Ministry

The head Ministry that controls Solaris and behind many of the planned genocides and wars that have occured over the many, many years since created by Deus.

  • A God Am I: What the Ministry believe resurrecting Deus will mean for them.
  • All There in the Manual: Perfect Works says the names of the Ministers are Enoch, Irad, Mehujael, Methushael, Lamech, Jabal, Jubal, and Tubal.
  • The Omniscient Council of Vagueness: Part of the reason why Xenogear's story is confusing at times is trying to figure out just WHAT these guys are talking about half the time.
  • The Reveal:Kinda obvious when you think about it, but the Gazel Ministry are actually A.I. kept in a huge spherical computer.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: All Krelian needed the ministry for was to activate the Gaetia Key. Once that's done...
File:Xenogears miang 9594.jpg

Miang Hawwa

  • And I Must Scream: Elly and Karen show that the original personality of the woman who's body Miang co-opts remains intact through the duration of the possession, re-emerging--in Karen's case--only after Miang has abandoned the body (moments prior to her death).
  • Becoming the Mask: As Executioner, she has more autonomy to do dirty work herself (And she does it efficiently enough for this identity to be widely feared), but Miang apparently prefers to play sidekick as herself to Ramsus, Grahf (Even as Executioner, and also the only time you fight Miang in this identity), then Krelian.
  • Big Bad: She shares her claim to the "Big Bad" title with Krelian.
  • Body Snatcher: Can take over the body of any woman with her DNA when her current body fails. Considering she's this planet's Eve character, that's pretty much any woman, period -- which woman is at random, however. Miang's real form is that of the mitochondrial DNA of the planet's human population, which is called the Ouroboros. When one Miang dies, she just awakens in another convenient woman. Near the end of the game, Elly becomes the 999th Miang, immediately on the death of the 998th (Ramsus's assistant) who appeared in most of the game.
  • Body Surf: As mentioned above, there have been 999 Miangs over the span of 10,000 years. That averages out to any particular Miang having roughly a ten-year lifespan.
  • Bodyguard Babes: To Ramsus, though she's officially his aide-de-camp. We later learn that Miang has acted as one of these to male leaders throughout history.
  • Dragon with an Agenda: To Ramsus, Grahf, and Krelian. Also to the Gazel Ministry in the past, most notably Cain.
  • Eldritch Abomination: More like an Eldridge Abomination.
  • God in Human Form: Being the Will of Deus, she basically acts as its physical avatar. In spite of that, she's not really a Physical God, as apart from the ability to Body Surf and vaguely-defined mind control powers, she doesn't seem to be especially powerful.
  • I Cannot Self-Terminate: Her mental programing by Deus leaves her unable to take her own life. So she usually sets things up so that she can be murdered to keep Body Surfing.
  • Laser-Guided Karma Curb Stomp Battle: She piss you off? Make you reeeally wanna kill her? Makes you wish you can stomp her smug face in? Here's some good news. The pathetic final boss Urobolus IS Miang.
  • Luke I Am Your Distant Ancestor: She is technically this to everyone except Abel, who had been onboard the Eldridge and survived its crashing thanks to his power as a Contact.
  • Locked Into Strangeness: Usually, whenever Miang takes over a new body, whatever color that woman's hair was instantly turns purple, like the Original Miang's hair was.
  • Pet the Dog: Sacrificing herself (as Karen Wong) for Fei. This is debated; the characters tend to think that Karen regained control and did it out of love for her child--a theory the cutscene animation seems to support--but it's also possible that she was just tossing aside a disposable body to protect a valuable investment.
  • Smug Snake
  • The Chessmaster: Before Krelian came along, Miang was tugging practically all the strings to her plan. The only reason he took this spot was because of their similar goals. Miang wanted to resurrect Deus, but Krelian wanted to take it a step further.
  • The Woman Behind The Man
  • Tin Tyrant: Though at first Miang as Executioner doesn't take the metallic look quite as far as Grahf does, when she rejoins with Deus there is no question that she is literally this trope.
  • Tsundere: To Ramsus again; sometimes treating him like crap and other times giving him the best sex of his life. Justified; she's doing it to mess up his mind so he'll go nuts and kill Cain.
  • The Vamp: Her preferred method of manipulation.
  • You Gotta Have Indigo Hair: All incarnations of Miang have hair color between indigo and black. Miang #1 and #998 had the lighter shade, while Miang!Karen had black hair.

Deus

File:Xenogears grahf 3554.jpg

Grahf

He was once Lacan, the previous past life of Fei as the -Contact-. But since Grahf started to Body Surf, he has no longer been the Contact, and Fei and Grahf lost their continuity of shared memories. After taking many hosts for centuries, Grahf's latest host is Khan Wong, modern Fei's own father. Khan has only partial control over his body, so he has disappeared from the world's view; when he's not Grahf, he appears in disguise as the Wiseman. It is not known that Khan, Wiseman and Grahf are all the same host until The Reveal late in the game's story.

File:Xenogears krelian 3922.jpg

Krelian

= Voiced by Ryotaro Okiayu (Japanese) and Cam Clarke (English) =

  "-Deus-, the physical manifestation of god, only wants results... The means are insignificant to him."

Others

File:CAIN01 657.jpg

Emperor Cain

Emperor of Solaris and the first human created by Deus. Is described many times as the Big Bad, but the truth is much different then realized...

  • The Atoner: Everything he does to help Fei is because he still feels guilty for killing Abel all those years ago.
  • Big Bad: Until Krelian came along, Cain essentially was the one in charge of Solaris for all those millennia.
  • Good All Along
  • Heel Realization: It isn't stated when exactly this happened, but Emperor Cain eventually turned against his original destiny and seeks to do everything possible to prevent Deus' resurrection.
  • Kicked Upstairs: Krelian is actually the one who controls Solaris, so this is basically what Cain has been reduced to for the last 500 years.
  • Really Seven Hundred Years Old: If you don't count the Gazel Ministry who were turned into A.I. centuries ago, Cain is literally the oldest human on the planet at nearly ten thousand years old.
  • The Man Behind the Curtain: It may not seem like in in a first playthrough, but everything Cain does or orders Citan to do is in order to help out Fei as he is the best hope for humanity to survive.
  • The Reveal: Subverted. When Ramsus kills Cain, his mask gets knocked off only to reveal a black, charred husk of a man. Though most fans tend to agree that since Ramsus is a clone of Cain, then that is what he looked like.
File:Xenogears sigurd 9889.jpg

Sigurd Harcourt

Bart's right hand man on the Yggdrasil, and also his Long Lost Sibling. He also has a past in Solaris, and is old friends with Citan, Jessie and Ramsus.

  • Royal Blood
  • Stripperiffic/Bare Your Midriff/Mr. Fanservice: Whether in Gebler, in the Elements or aboard the Yggdrasil, Sigurd always modifies his outfits to expose his abdomen above his waist and below his chest. This actually resembles the traditional clothes of his mother's people from the Ignas desert, but it also makes him fanservice. But most of this is All There in the Manual -- it's not quite as obvious in game that he dresses this way.
File:Xenogears margie 2199.jpg

Marguerite "Margie" Fatima

Bart's sixteen year old cousin and current Holy Mother of Nisan.

File:Xenogears hammer 7343.jpg

Hammer the Supplier

A demi-human whom Fei first meets in Kislev, claiming to be a merchant. He was imprisoned in Kislev's D-Block, but escaped alongside with Fei and his allies.

  • Ambiguously Gay: Has a few vaguely Homoerotic Subtext moments (with Fei or Rico) and one vaguely Pet Homosexual moment (with Elly). And he still has such moments after being lost, through Rico's fond reminiscing.
  • Dead Sidekick
  • Face Heel Turn
  • Homoerotic Subtext: It's true that Hammer is chiefly interested in finding his way in the world, but the particular gleeful eagerness with which he tries to court the favor of Fei or Rico goes beyond that of a mere Hero Worshipper and well into Stupid Sexy Flanders territory, if not even further.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Deconstructed. Hammer realizes that he's surrounded by so many important people that want to save the world, while he's just a nobody, that he's willing to do just about anything in order to be special like them. Perhaps even murder.
  • Megane/Meganekko: Hammer's glasses are most certainly a significant distinguishing feature. He is certainly Megane, but his Meganekko status is less certain, at least because his pince-nez glasses sit further away from his eyes and partially rob the classical "moe glasses" effect.
  • Morality Pet: Surprisingly, Hammer was this for Rico, but we only learn about it after Hammer is gone.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain
  • Petting Zoo People
  • Sympathetic Murderer: Elly and Rico still loved Hammer, even after he killed Medena. Rico continually emphatically insists that it wasn't Hammer's fault. If this is so, then Hammer may have been manipulated into doing it. The seeds of Hammer's betrayal were sewn during his time of captivity in Krelian's lab, and it was never certain just what was done to him before the party escaped.
  • Tragic Monster
  • Unfazed Everyman/Muggle: Hammer follows the heroes everywhere, even without fighting skills.
  • Was Once a Man: Before becoming a giant cyborg.
File:Xenogears jessie 8299.jpg

Jesiah "Jessie" Black

Billy Lee Black's father. Former agent of Solaris.

Primera Black

Billy Lee Black's little sister.

Yui Uzuki

Citan's wife.

  • The Ace: She was once (allegedly) the best swordswoman in Shevat prior to meeting Citan. Yeah, that's right, the two Aces are married to one another.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook: Fei repeatedly proclaims his love of Yui's cooking. Citan is less appreciative.
  • Hot Mom
  • Retired Badass: According to Citan, she did defeat him in swordfight before their marriage.

Notes

  1. Though Grahf was originally Lacan, his personality and memories permanently diverged when he started to Body Surf 500 years before, and so that Grahf has his own character section further down the page.
