Playable in BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger
Ragna the Bloodedge
Ragna the Bloodedge (ラグナ＝ザ＝ブラッドエッジ Raguna za Buraddoejji?) is the main protagonist of the BlazBlue series from Calamity Trigger to Central Fiction. Also known as the Grim Reaper, he is feared by the NOL for being the most powerful individual to have ever rebelled against them since the Ikaruga Civil War. His actions, which included destroying countless number of their branches, have labeled him the most wanted criminal and caused him to receive the largest bounty ever in the history of the NOL. He possesses a powerful form of ars magus called the Azure Grimoire, or simply referred to as the titular BlazBlue, which is often either the secondary or primary target of those after him and his bounty. His ultimate goal is to destroy the NOL, for he blames them for destroying his family. He is Jin Kisaragi's biological brother, whose rivalry with him stems from an incident that happened when their sister Saya was presumably killed. His right arm is mechanical because his real one was cut off by Terumi, who had taken control of Jin's mind. He was resurrected by Rachel as a dhampir, causing one of his green eyes to turn red and his once-blond hair to white. The BlazBlue he possesses is only a fragment of an imitation; the true Grimoire is actually destined to be wielded by Noel Vermillion. But in Continuum Shift, Ragna is given the Idea Engine by a dying Lambda which enabled him to access the true Azure. He realizes that Saya is possessed by Izanami and decides to give up vengeance to protect his loved ones in Chrono Phantasma, and later in Central Fiction decides to protect the girl inside Amaterasu from the entitled. He and Jin (including his future-past counterpart Hakumen) soon learned that Noel/Mu is indeed Saya's good half, whose soul transferred to the doll's body during Relius' experiment on her, leaving her evil half of what become Izanami took over her original body complete. Once Mu and Noel merge together, he helps Noel (in her Mu form) to merge Izanami back to her, with the help of Nine's sacrifice. With the help of Jin and Trinity after Ragna separates the Susano'o armor from Terumi, Jin (while donning the Susano'o armor by Trinity in his future-past/Hakumen form) transports Ragna and Terumi to the Azure void where Ragna can kill him for good. Once all evils are finished, and after helping Noel merge with the Origin to become Saya again, Ragna's last act is to cease himself into the cauldron, to make sure the Azure never falls into the wrong hands, before saying goodbye to his beloved siblings and telling Amane that he has no regrets at all, as he disappeared leaving only his sword, which is later put to the hill where it is less far away from Celica's church as his grave. Whether or not he truly dies, even his sword recently disappeared from his (arguably) grave in the final ending scene is as yet unknown. He is also hinted not to be a natural born human due to his unusual features, like a tattoo on his chest like Noel has and is eventually revealed to be one of the children of the 5th prime field device who mated with a black beast. Ragna's weapon is called Blood-Scythe (ブラッドサイズ Buraddo Saizu), a giant sword that can extend into a scythe. His Drive, Soul Eater, enables him to absorb a portion of the damage dealt to replenish his health.
Jin Kisaragi (ジン＝キサラギ?) is a former Major in the NOL and one of its elite commanding officers as well as the rival to Ragna. He is always cool and calm, but is also jealous, ambitious, and possessive with little care for others, treating them like they are mere obstacles. He displayed formidable actions to gain his rank during the Ikaruga Civil War. When he heard that Ragna the Bloodedge had arrived on the scene, he quickly abandoned his post to hunt him down by himself. The truth, however, is that Ragna is Jin's biological brother, and Jin's early feelings of rivalry were furthered by his visions of the future and his Nox Nyctores' amplification of his emotions. Terumi corrupted Jin's mind and incited him to hack off Ragna's arm (the latter nearly dying without the intervention of Rachel) and supposedly kills Saya, and Jin often says that he's looking forward to killing Ragna again. After the incident, he was adopted into the Kisaragi house, a highly powerful and respected family within the NOL. He possesses a notable psychosis, said to be caused by his sword, the Nox Nyctores Mucro Algesco: Yukianesa (氷剣・ユキアネサ Hyōken: Yukianesa?). While the sword grants him manipulation over ice, it also enhances primal feelings and is often blamed for "insanity". His future alter-ego is the Silver Knight of the Six Heroes named Hakumen. Jin's Drive, Frost Bite, allows him to freeze his opponents. In Central Fiction he no longer acts insane towards Ragna anymore, and sometimes regrets to kill him when he got fully amnesia temporarily. When his future-past self, Hakumen manages to keep Nu away from merging Ragna and knocks her into a coma, he is killed by Terumi from behind, who regained the Susano'o armor that Rachel confiscated from him and gave it to Jin's future-past self as Hakumen. Once Ragna separates the Susano'o armor from Terumi, Jin, with the help of Trinity dons the armor in a form of his future-past self, transported his brother and Terumi to an Azure void where his brother can kill Terumi for good. After bidding Ragna farewell, Jin is now promoted to a higher rank. In an interview by Mori, Jin can no longer fight due to his deal with Trinity having used up all of his energy.
Noel Vermillion (ノエル＝ヴァーミリオン Noeru Vāmirion?) is the main heroine of the series, who was found as a young girl amidst the burning fields of Ikaruga where she was rescued, and then adopted by the family of Vermillion. It was because of her outstanding combat activity that she became a lieutenant of the NOL using the Nox Nyctores revolver Arcus Diabolus: Bolverk (魔銃・ベルヴェルク Majū: Beruveruku?), which apparently does not fire actual bullets but rather inflicts damage by creating distortions in dimensional space. At the start of the series, she was Jin's secretary. In truth, Noel suffers from amnesia, and is actually Mu-12, a Murakumo Unit created by Relius Clover, the predecessor of Nu-13 and the final boss in the console version of Continuum Shift. After being rescued by Ragna, Noel seeks out Rachel in Chrono Phantasma, who helps her regain her powers as Mu. In Central Fiction however, Noel separates from Mu to protect the gate to the gods, and it is revealed that she is the Master Unit's core. Once Noel merges with Mu once again, Noel is also revealed to be one of Saya's halves, whose half of her soul which is good was separated to an artificial body Relius created into what becomes of Mu from her original body, which has been taken over by her evil-half, Izanami due to Relius' lethal experiments on her. Both Noel/Mu and Izanami are also the halves of "The Origin", the core Master Unit Amaterasu herself. After Noel/Mu absorbs Izanami into one again thanks to Ragna and the sacrifice of Nine, and Ragna defeats Terumi, Noel finally finalizes her merging with "The Origin" to become Saya again, curing her original body's illness as well. Due to Celica's disappearance as a Chronophantasma, Saya still goes by her current Noel alias and takes Celica's place to rebuild the church, with the help of Lambda. However, there are a few subtle hints that indicate that Izanami may still exist inside her, and is waiting for the perfect chance for her revenge to come. With her Drive, Chain Revolver, Noel does different attacks in an active stance.
Jonathan Oyama at VentureBeat gave Noel positive reception, where he described her as being "extremely effective as a fighter," and stated "Oddly enough, she's one of the few game characters who I can truly sympathize with. Just like Noel, I often have a tough time remembering my own past."
Rachel Alucard (レイチェル＝アルカード Reicheru Arukādo?) is a vampire and the current head of the noble Alucard family. She is the 4th main character of the series. Despite her small appearance, she is a formidable opponent in battle, using her servants, Nago and Gii, as weapons, and her Drive, Silpheed, to control the wind. Rachel also possesses one of the three Sankishin, the Tsukuyomi Unit (ツクヨミユニット Tsukuyomi Yunitto?), which is a giant shield that she describes as the "ultimate defense". Rachel slipped out of her castle in search of fun because she hates to be bored. Due to her hairstyle, several characters nickname her "Rabbit", a name that irritates her to no end, though Ragna seems to be the only one who can get away with calling her an idiot. Despite her status however, she deeply loathes her vampiric impulses. She seems to be watching Ragna, as she is the one who accidentally turned him into a half-vampire by giving him her powers (this is also the reason behind his heterochromia and healing ability). Due to this, he is one of the only characters who is aware of her. She also watches and toys with the other characters of the game as part of her amusement. At the end of Chrono Phantasma, she asks Tsubaki to kill her if she, Jin or Noel fails to kill Ragna. In Central Fiction it's shown that Rachel is losing her powers due to constant interference and she's shown to have reacted to Naoto due to his similarities to Ragna, making her lose her composure. In the ending Rachel loses her memories of Ragna but subconsciously wants to find him again with the help of an alternative version Tsubaki who apparently became Hakumen.
Taokaka (タオカカ?), or Tao for short, is a catgirl who is a member of the Kaka tribe, wearing a large coat that obscures her true face, only exposing beady red eyes and a row of teeth (whether or not this is her true face is a mystery). She wants to get back the sky above her village, which was sealed off by humans building cities above her village, was recently sent by the Elder to retrieve the bounty on Ragna's head, becoming a vigilante in the process. Despite this resolve, she is considerably food-obsessed and forgetful, often falling asleep on a whim, becoming hungry moments after a meal, or forgetting details moments after hearing them. She is good friends with Litchi, affectionately referring to her as "boobie lady". Although, she doesn't seem to refer to anyone other than herself by name; she calls Ragna "good guy" (because he buys her food), Bang "scruffy man", Arakune "black squiggly", Noel "lacking lady", Hakumen "mask man", Nu "flappy-flap", and Jubei "cat person". She is unable to recognize that Ragna the "good-guy" and "Rawrgna" the criminal are the same person. It is revealed the Kaka tribe, which she hails from, is actually genetically-engineered from the genes of Jubei, one of the Six Heroes. With her Drive, Dancing Edge, Taokaka launches at her opponents in a torpedo-like fashion.
Carl Clover (カルル＝クローバー Karuru Kurōbā?) is a young boy who, like Noel and Jin, was a student at the Military Academy, but dropped out without warning while Noel and Jin graduated. He is currently after Ragna's bounty and the Azure Grimoire, leading him to become a vigilante. He travels with a maid-like puppet called Nirvana, whom he believes to be his sister Ada. He is unwilling to see that she is in fact the Nox Nyctores Deus Machina: Nirvana (機神・ニルヴァーナ Kishin: Niruvāna?), a causality weapon in the form of a marionette which amplifies its owner's desires to kill. After several people attempted to disassemble or remove Nirvana from him, Carl became extremely paranoid and possessive over her. He is the son of Relius, whom he hates and refuses to call his father. In the end of Centralfiction, Carl began to suffer a blindness like what happened to his father back in his past, except the effect is only on his left eye. When his father escaped into the Boundary, Carl takes his place and gained an eyepatch like similar to his father's mask. His Drive, Automaton, enables him to control Nirvana in battle.
Litchi Faye-Ling (ライチ＝フェイ＝リン Raichi Fei Rin?) is a renowned doctor living in Orient Town, located in Kagutsuchi. She owns a clinic there and is helped by her assistant Linhua. She had worked with Tager and Kokonoe in Sector Seven until the incident where Lotte Carmine, one of her colleagues, became Arakune. She defends the local townspeople from Arakune and seeks to restore him to his former self through any means necessary, even through death. She also seems to respect Bang Shishigami, even apologizing to him if she defeats him in a match, although she remains unaware of the true extent of his feelings for her. In Continuum Shift, Litchi is compelled to join the NOL by Hazama in order to obtain information that can help her save Arakune. Her Drive, Mantenbō (萬天棒 lit. Myriad Heavens Staff), enables her to control her bō staff of the same name while changing her moveset.

Arakune (アラクネ?), formerly known as Lotte Carmine (ロット＝カーマイン Rotto Kāmain?), is a black blob-like creature with a white mask who formerly worked alongside Tager and Litchi in Sector Seven. After an attempt to study the Boundary, he became what he is today, now housing innumerable insects with his now-blobby body and thriving on knowledge. His horrible condition has rendered him virtually insane and lacking any reliable memory, as well as distorting his speech to near incoherency (most of his dialogue consists of gibberish, insane laughter and tortured screaming). In Centralfiction reveals he finally gained a bit of his sanity, but still continues his ruthless mission when he was insane. We later learn that Roy was inside the Boundary the whole time and Arakune was just his vessel that allowed himself to exist within the Boundary eventually no longer needing Arakune. With his Drive, Crimson, Arakune's special attacks fill his Curse Gauge.
Chris Hoadley of VentureBeat listed Arakune as "15 most significant new fighting game characters," where he commented that he "fits the genre's "freak" archetype with erratic movements and the ability to pester foes with insects after inflicting a curse," and credited him paving the way for similar characters in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Injustice: Gods Among Us.
Originally the leader of an Ikaruga unit, Tager (テイガー Teigā?) suffered a mortal wound during the Ikaruga Civil War and was forced to withdraw. He was revived as Iron Tager (アイアン＝テイガー Aian Teigā?, TR-0009), an enormous cyborg, by Kokonoe whom he pledged loyalty to afterward. After his revival, he bears a similar resemblance to a demon, which resulted in him dubbed as the "Red Devil of Sector Seven". He was originally Bullet's captain before his near death at the hands of Azrael. In the end of Centralfiction, Tager and Bullet are now partners once again. Tager uses his Drive, Voltic Battler, to magnetize his opponents for a short period of time.

Bang Shishigami (シシガミバング Shishigami Bangu?) is a ninja from Ikaruga village. He lost his home in the Ikaruga Civil War and his master Tenjō at the hands of Jin Kisaragi, and he and his followers began living in Kagutsuchi waiting for the right moment to strike back at Jin and the NOL. There, he declares himself a hero of love and justice, and dedicates himself to exterminating evil and overturning injustice wherever he goes. He is quite over-exuberant, prone to speeches and tangents as well as making dramatic entrances. He has a romantic fascination with Litchi, always willing to go charging in headlong if he sees someone making her upset. He is overzealous in every way, subtlety not usually at the forefront of his mind (this is only reinforced where his Astral Heat in Continuum Shift destroys almost all of his clothes), however his fiery spirit and will have earned him the respect of a few characters, most notably Hakumen. He also wants Ragna's bounty to rebuild the glory of Ikaruga. In Chrono Phantasma, it is revealed that Bang's giant nail is the Nox Nyctores, Phoenix: Rettenjō (鳳翼・烈天上 Hōyoku: Rettenjō), which greatly shocks him, and he decides to seek more answers about his weapon and he realize that his weapon was in fact a key to lock the seithr, after this revelation he also learns about Izanami's plan and gained a more serious attitude, deciding to team up with Ragna in order to help him save the world. In the end of Centralfiction, Bang leads a restoration of Ikaruga, under the order of his master's successor Homura. His Drive, Burning Heart, is a set of attacks that light up an icon in his Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan Gauge on hit.

Nu-13 (ニュー·サーティーン Nyū-Sātīn?, ν-13-, ν -No.13-) is the main antagonist of Calamity Trigger, and a Murakumo Unit created by Relius Clover, who was forged in Kagutsuchi's Gates of Sheol. Her weapon is the Nox Nyctores, Lux Sanctus: Murakumo (神輝・ムラクモ Shinki: Murakumo), a giant sword that breaks apart to become her armor and a set of floating swords. She was programmed, either by Relius or his partner, Hazama, to terminate anyone she deems as hostile subjects that come near the Gate. Nu is also shown to have a split personality, split between an emotionless girl when around others and a clingy yandere when around Ragna. But in Central Fiction, her emotionless state is slowly fading and her yandere personality has almost completely taken over. However, due to a fatal defeat by the hands of Hakumen and Ragna, Nu suffers a coma under the care of Saya (Noel/Mu and Izanami's original identity) and Lambda. Nu uses her Drive, Sword Summoner, to attack with sword-like projectiles at different angles.

Leader of the Six Heroes, Hakumen (ハクメン?, Alternatively spelled Haku-men) is a mighty warrior wielding a long sword, the Nox Nyctores, Interfectum Malus: Ōkami (斬魔・鳴神 Zanma: Ōkami?). He also dons the Sankishin, the Susano'o Unit (スサノヲユニット Susano'o Yunitto?), wearing a mask that completely hides his face, which was originally owned by the original, now known as Yuuki Terumi, before Rachel confiscated the armor and gave it to Hakumen due to Terumi's destructive nature. He led mankind to defeat the Black Beast, then when attempting to warn the people that they needed to "repent for their sins" lest the Black Beast return, they trapped him in a space known as the "Edge", where he drifted for nearly a hundred years until Kokonoe discovered him. Kokonoe helped him return to the world, hoping to use him to defeat Terumi, but he set out to achieve his own agendas before being completely salvaged from the Edge. During his journey, he has also shown tremendous respect towards Bang and his unyielding spirit, something truly out-of-character for Hakumen. Hakumen often says that his sword will purify the world of sin and vanquish that which is evil. In truth, Hakumen is Jin's future self from another timeline, whose soul was bound to the Susano'o Unit after falling into the Gates of Sheol and saved by Rachel. In the finale of Centralfiction, after he prevents Nu from merging with Ragna by putting her into a coma fatally, Hakumen was stabbed by Terumi, causing his soul to vanish and Terumi regains the armor Rachel confiscated from him to become Dark Susano'o once again. After Ragna managed to catch up with Terumi and separate him from the Susano'o armor, Trinity gives Hakumen's present-self, Jin to don the armor in the same form as Hakumen's to help his brother, Ragna, to slash both Ragna and Terumi to the Azure void for Ragna to kill Terumi there for good. Once Noel merges with "The Origin" to become Saya again, Trinity throws the armor to the Boundary. After Ragna's sacrifice many days later, another Hakumen (which is revealed to be Tsubaki from a different time) and Rachel visit (arguably) Ragna's grave. He is shown to be in love with Tsubaki and will do anything to protect her as he doesn't want her to die like in the previous timeline, which led him to do anything to stop her from overusing her power at all cost. He is also shown to deeply despise anybody who dare to hurt her, mainly Nu -No .13- as she was the one who caused Tsubaki a gruesome end in the previous timeline. His Drive is called Zanshin (斬神 lit. Slaying God), which projects a shield-like energy barrier that, when hit by an opponent's attack, will negate said attack and follow-up with an unblockable, invincible counter-attack.

Lambda-11 (ラムダ·イレブン Ramuda-Irebun?, Λ-11-, Λ -No.11-) is an imitation Murakumo Unit created by Kokonoe by combining the body of the 11th experimental replica of Saya with the soul of Nu, which was recovered after falling into the Gates of Sheol during the conclusion of Calamity Trigger's Story Mode. Her Drive, Sword Summoner EX, is a copy of Nu's. Near the end of Continuum Shift, Lambda sacrifices herself to protect Ragna from a fatal blow from Terumi, passing on her Idea Engine to him as she dies in his arms. But in Chrono Phantasma: Extend, Lambda is somehow revived and she searches for Ragna.

Hazama (ハザマ?), a captain of the NOL's Intelligence Division and the main antagonist of Continuum Shift. He is an artificial human born from an Azure grimoire within created by Relius to be a vessel for Terumi. Hazama fights with balisong knives and the Nox Nyctores, Geminus Anguium: Ouroboros (蛇双・ウロボロス Jasō: Uroborosu?). His Drive, Ouroboros, enables him to summon chains that can be used to quickly move through the battlefield or attack his opponents. In Calamity Trigger, he appears to be supervising Noel's actions to keep her in line, but he has a sinister hidden agenda. In Central Fiction, after separating from Terumi, Hazama has decided to no longer be Terumi's vessel and wants to pursue his own desires seeing people in pain and being able to feel emotions, while Terumi also changes his mind, as he finds another one that is better than Hazama's, his original body The Susanoo Unit. In the end, he and Relius jump into a Cauldron, with his fate unknown implying that he ended up in Naoto's world. He is the 5th main character of the series.
Chris Hoadley of VentureBeat listed Hazama as "15 most significant new fighting game characters," where he stated, "As a fighter, Hazama is a terror in close range with his knife slashes and Jayoku Houtenjin kick super, but in order to reach that point, he needs to use special chains to whip him around the screen," and credited him paving the way for similar characters in Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
Tsubaki Yayoi (ツバキ＝ヤヨイ?) is Jin's childhood friend/relative and Noel's former roommate from the Military Academy and a member of the NOL's 0 Division. She is described as a straight-A student, and has a rather no-nonsense personality. She's very serious and reserved, and is a member of the dignified Yayoi family. In the true ending of Calamity Trigger, where she appears as a sub-character, she is assigned by Hazama to kill Noel and Jin. In Continuum Shift, Tsubaki learns from Hazama that she was originally Jin's secretary in the previous timelines before Noel took her place in the current. This leads her to hate Noel for taking everything from her, though Hazama intentionally did not tell her that she died in the previous timelines. In the end, Tsubaki was placed under the control of Izanami through the Mind Eater spell. However in Chrono Phantasma, Tsubaki is freed thanks to the efforts of Jin, Noel, and Makoto. In Central Fiction, Tsubaki, while in Izayoi form finally finds out that Hakumen was formerly Jin from a future-past timeline. In the end, once Izanami and Terumi's threat is over, Tsubaki and Makoto visit the church Noel has been residing at when her alias was Saya, with the help of Lambda in honor of the late-sister Celica, whom had raised Noel and Jin, and also Ragna, though they have forgotten whom Ragna is after he ceased himself into the cauldron. In the finale of the ending, at (what may or may not be) Ragna's grave where Rachel is standing towards (possibly) Ragna's sword, it is revealed that Tsubaki might be the new Hakumen, but likely from the future-past like the future-past of Jin used to. Her weapon is the Sealed Weapon Izayoi (封印兵装・十六夜 Fūin Heisō – Izayoi), an Ars Armagus that enables her to control light, though it can potentially lead to blindness. Her Drive, Install, charges her Install Gauge.

Mu-12 (ミュー·トゥエルブ Myū-Tuerubu?, μ-12-, μ -No.12-) is a Murakumo Unit created by Relius Clover, and Noel Vermillion's former host after fusing with the True Azure. She is playable only in the console version, and is the true final boss of the game. Her memories as Noel are erased by Terumi, and she serves him for one purpose: to destroy the Sankishin Unit "Amaterasu" as well as to erase the world from its existence. She exists as the sword called Kusanagi, the "Sword of the Godslayer", and her hatred for the world has increased substantially, making her aggressive towards everything she fights. Like Nu, Mu wields the Nox Nyctores Lux Sanctus: Murakumo, though her version is different in color and appearance. Her Drive, Steins Gunner, projects a Stein to a targeted location. In the end of Continuum Shift, Mu is sealed by Ragna when he rescues Noel. But in Chrono Phantasma, Noel acknowledges Mu as herself and regains her powers. In Central Fiction Mu is separated from Noel for reasons unknown to her and seeks for her other half. Finally, once Mu and Noel merge once again, it is revealed that Mu's body had been storing Saya's good-half when it separates from her original body, leaving it taken over by her evil half, Izanami during Relius' experiment. Noel uses this form to merge herself and Izanami merge back together, with the help of Ragna and the sacrifice of Nine. Afterwards, Noel finally finalizes her merging with "The Origin" to become Saya again, curing her original body's illness as well once Terumi is killed for good by Ragna (with the help of Jin (in his future-past/Hakumen form of Susano'o armor) and Trinity). However, it is vaguely hinted that Izanami might still exist in her soul, and may be planning her revenge as of now.
Playable in Blazblue: Continuum Shift II
Makoto Nanaya (マコト＝ナナヤ?) is another classmate of Noel's and Jin's from the Military Academy, much like Tsubaki. She is a beastkin with squirrel-like features, and is considerably hyperactive with a short attention span. She is outgoing, adventurous, and has inhuman reflexes. She has a few complexes about her race but nonetheless proudly acknowledges who she is. She seems to be working under the NOL's Intelligence Division, but is actually an informant for Sector Seven. In the true ending, she transfers to Sector Seven in order to protect Noel. In battle, she fights using her specially-made cross tonfas, and her Drive, Impact, allows her to execute special attacks depending on the level of charge.
Valkenhayn R. Hellsing
Valkenhayn R. Hellsing (ヴァルケンハイン＝Ｒ＝ヘルシング Varukenhain Aru Herushingu?) is one of the Six Heroes and Rachel's elderly butler and trusted adviser who has served the Alucard family line for generations. He possesses a sharp wit and is concerned for Rachel's well-being. Valkenhayn seems to be worried about Rachel associating with things below her class (particularly Ragna, although others might apply), but he always acts in a sophisticated and gentlemanly manner. His Drive, Werewolf, enables him to transform into a werewolf.
Platinum the Trinity
Platinum the Trinity (プラチナ＝ザ＝トリニティ Purachina za Toriniti?) is a young girl with three personalities named Luna (ルナ Runa?), Sena (セナ?), and Trinity Glassfille (トリニティ＝グラスフィール Toriniti Gurasufīru?). Luna is a rude young girl; Sena is a polite young boy; and Trinity is the spirit of one of the Six Heroes. Trinity's personality is locked within her Nox Nyctores, Arma Reboare: Muchōrin (雷轟・無兆鈴 Raigō: Muchōrin), and she is only able to come to the surface for brief periods of time. In Central Fiction, Trinity has separated from Platinum, and Luna and Sena are in danger of disappearing. They are saved thanks to Jin's Power of Order. Platinum's Drive, Magical Symphony, equips her with a special item to use in battle.

Relius Clover (レリウス＝クローバー Reriusu Kurōbā?) is one of the three main antagonists of the series, alongside his partner, Yūki Terumi, and their mistress, Hades Izanami, and is also Carl and Ada's father, and Ignis' husband. He's a genius alchemist known as the Puppeteer, and revealed in Central Fiction to be formerly a wizard known as One, using both magic and science for his inventory. His inventions include the artificial humans, Hazama and Saya, which were both used to host Terumi and Izanami respectively, the Murakumo Units, which themselves consist of Nu-13, Lambda-11, and Mu-12, and the Nox Nyctores named Deus Machina: Nirvana, which he harvested his daughter's body to create. He completed the latter with help from Kokonoe of Sector Seven, only for his son Carl to steal it and use it against him. His own puppet, the Fluctus Redactum: Ignis (デトネーター・イグニス Detonētā: Igunisu?), was created from the body of his wife, Ignis, who is similar in appearance to Nirvana. He summons Ignis into battle with his Drive, Detonator.In the end of CentralFiction Relius escapes into the boundary.
Playable in BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma
Amane Nishiki (アマネ＝ニシキ?) is an effeminate young man clad in a kimono who's drawn to battle like it is a dance stage. He's armed with a seemingly living piece of cloth and his Drive, Spiral, involves transforming it into drills. It is hinted that he is immortal and seems to be acquainted with Rachel, who calls him "Uzume". In Central Fiction, he is an onlooker much like Rachel and decides to go on a more active role.

Bullet (バレット Baretto?) is a mercenary who's been fighting and moving from battlefield to battlefield since a young age. She lost her entire squad during a mission for Sector Seven, and she seeks Kokonoe to find her answers as to why the tragedy happened. Once she got all answers needed, including from the Sector Seven's traitor, Azrael for injuring her captain, leading his transformation into a cyborg Iron Tager when Kokonoe rescues him, Bullet joins Sector Seven as her captain's partner once again in the end of Central Fiction. Her Drive, Lockon, allows her to rush towards her opponent to grab and throw them.

Kokonoe (ココノエ?) is Tager's superior at Sector Seven, Lotte (who became Arakune) and Litchi's former employer and Jubei and Nine's daughter. She is a half-beastkin, two of the Six Heroes, though she shows unexplained disdain for this fact, supposedly "staying angry for weeks" when Jubei is mentioned. Kokonoe is a rather serious and cynical woman with no regard for emotions, and always strives for Tager to complete his missions without fail; however, she can on rare occasions be quite personable, mostly around her creations. She's displayed and perceived as cranky most of the time. Deep inside, she had been suffering alone and it was revealed that her true mission was in fact to defeat Terumi whom she held a grudge due to him killed her mother, which led her to treat her creation in nice way due to her thinking her own creation as her own child (a trait that she apparently inherited from Nine), she is also revealed to be a powerful magic user herself but she use a special equipment to amplify her power.

Terumi is a ghost in a synthetic body named Hazama, and is the main antagonist and a playable character in Continuum Shift, prior to his separated original form which debuted in the console version of Chrono Phantasma. He is the creator of both the Black Beast and Azure Grimoire, and the founder of both the NOL and Sector Seven factions, as well as causing Ragna's current state. He was also a member of the Six Heroes, but later betrayed them after helping them destroy his own Black Beast. Like Hazama, Terumi fights with the Nox Nyctores, Geminus Anguium: Ouroboros, and balisong knives. With his Drive, Force Eater, his attacks have heavy Heat Gauge gain, while the opponent gains none from being hit by (or blocking) them. In Chrono Phantasma, Terumi and Hazama have been separated, and Terumi was killed by Hakumen and Platinum the Trinity, while Hazama abandoned him to start his life anew. But in Central Fiction, Terumi used self-observation to survive but has only a week to live until he finds a new body and decided to use the Hihiirokane, a cube that can take on many forms, as a way to get a new body as in his original body from Hakumen. Eventually he becomes Susano'o again where he is the final antagonist, but only to be stopped by Ragna, with the help of Trinity and Jin (who obtained and donned the armor in a form of his future-past self, Hakumen after Ragna separates it from Terumi), and disappears for good.

However, the clone Celica has a short lifespan as she was created for the sole purpose to be the catalyst of activating the Lynchpin before her status as a Chronophantasma makes her fade away. She was created to activate the Lynchpin to put a halt in Izanami's schemes.

In Chrono Phantasma when she is revealed to be the true identity of Phantom (ファントム Fantomu?), Rachel theorized that Terumi pulled Nine's soul from the Boundary and placed it in a vessel. In Central Fiction, around the same time Celica fades away from being a Chronophantasma, she helped Ragna and Noel (who later merges with Mu once again) to weaken Izanami for Noel, in Mu form, to merge with Izanami and return as Saya again in progress (though possibly temporarily).

She is the drive of the Master Unit Amaterasu but grew a soul inside her vessel Saya, who is showing signs of decaying. However, Izanami is actually Saya's evil-half, due to a result of Relius' invention of the Murakumo Units causing Saya's good-half to possess the Murakumo Unit Mu-12, which became Noel Vermillion, leaving the original body in Izanami's possession. It is also revealed that Noel and Izanami are actually one of "The Origin"'s halves. She is eventually beaten and forced to be merged with her good-half, Noel/Mu to become Saya again in progress, with the help of Ragna and Nine with her dying breath, though it is hinted that Izanami might still be alive and plotting revenge inside Saya's soul.

In Central Fiction, it is revealed that Saya is a doll designed by Relius to host Izanami, in the same way Hazama was for Terumi, but is slowly starting to decay. However, it turns out that Saya's soul split into two artificial bodies Relius created, one residing within Mu/Noel's body, whom managed to escape from Relius and Terumi, but gaining amnesia afterwards, leaving her lifeless weak body behind, while Izanami has Saya's negative soul, leaving the original body soulless and becomes known as "The Origin", until in a recent Centralfiction event where Noel and Mu's body and souls becomes separated.
