Students of Elementary School Division
Mikan is the protagonist of the story. She is an optimistic, cute, athletic, and good-nature girl, but her clumsiness lands her into trouble. She is a cheerful and energetic person, much to the annoyance of her mellow-headed best friend, Hotaru, and used to live with her adoptive grandfather in the country before transferring to Alice Academy. Later in the series, it is revealed that Mikan is the daughter of Yuka Azumi and Izumi Yukihira. She is also the niece of the High School Principal on her father's side. Her father died before she was born and her mother left her with her adoptive grandfather to protect her from the academy.
She was shocked to hear that Hotaru was moving to an academy in Tokyo for young 'geniuses' and had become upset when she only sends her one letter during the time Hotaru left. When she heard rumors that students were like slaves in Alice Academy (felt was a possibility, since they gave money to parents for sending their children to the school), Mikan left her grandfather and her home to go after Hotaru by herself. She was then accepted to Alice Academy by Narumi-sensei and could attend Alice Academy with Hotaru and many other children. She was later told by Narumi that the so-called 'Alice' means a special power, not special academic results. At that time, Mikan didn't exactly know what her alice was.
She discovers that her alice is Nullification; an Alice which she inherited from her father, Yukihira Izumi. The Nullfication Alice can temporarily cancel out the powers of other Alices in close proximity to her. She also possesses the Stealing and Insertion Alices, which she inherited from her mother, Azumi Yuka. All of her Alices are very rare and special. In the early episodes it was stated that her Nullification Alice was unstable and worked best when protecting people she feels strongly for (i.e. Hotaru, Natsume, Ruka, etc.) However, Mikan is later able to control and utilize her powers effectively with help from her teacher, Nodacchi, and her partner, Natsume Hyuuga. At the beginning of the story, she was placed in the Special Abilities class, a class with students that have rare and uncommon Alices. Upon the discovery of her Stealing and Insertion Alice, she was transferred to the Dangerous Ability Class and forced into the Elementary School Principal's control. She is currently a Single Star, but the rank will most likely be changed to Special Star upon discovery of her Stealing Alice. Like her mother before her, her Stealing Alice caused her to receive unwanted attention from the Elementary School Principal and she becomes his favorite student. In chapter 96, she is moved to the Dangerous Ability Class by the Elementary Principal so he can gain use of her Stealing Alice, but Natsume and her friends come to her defense and help her escape from him.
While running away from the Elementary Principal, her uncle tells her the truth about her parents and birth, which shocks her. She is also asked that she leave with her mother for her own safety. She refused because she distrusted her mother for harming her friends in the Z arc. However, after looking at her mother's past and witnessing her father's death, she decides to go with her mother and realizes that she loves her mother. Unfortunately, her mother is killed by a bomb planted by Goshima as part of the Elementary School Principal's orders to prevent her from escaping and she agrees to sacrifice her freedom in order to protect the students. From chapter 140-154, she was imprisoned in the Main Building by the Elementary Principal, and forbidden to leave her room and have contact with her friends. In chapter 155, she escapes to heal Nobara and teams up with Persona to stop the ESP. In chapters 165 and 166, she uses the last of her Alice to save Natsume from dying, making her a non-Alice.
At first, she is disliked by her classmates and teachers due to her stubbornness and naiveness. She was the subject to frequent bullying, but she is always defended by Hotaru and her closest friends. Many were doubtful of her because she initially didn't know what her Alice was at first, but she gradually earns their respect as she proves herself as an Alice. She even wins over those who hated her at first, like Natsume, and becomes well-liked and popular among her peers. While she has strong attachments to her friends, she is clueless about love and romance due to her believing that she is too young to like boys. She is even oblivious of the feelings of Natsume and Ruka, and thought of them as friends. When she met Natsume, she hated him due to his cold and perverted attitude, and was appalled that Narumi had chosen Natsume to be her partner. However, as she gets to know him, she realizes his problems and comes to care for him, and eventually falls in love with him. She doesn't realize her true feelings, even though she has her first kiss by him at the end of Chapter 50, until chapter 134, when she feels Natsume's feelings and confesses to him. In chapter 144 and 145, she and Natsume directly confess their love to each other, and accepts Natsume's proposal. In chapter 166, in an attempt to save him from dying, she sacrifices her Alices. Soon after, her memories are erased and she is returned to her village. Four years later, Natsume (with the help of Narumi and Goshima) finds her, and her memories return. She and Natsume are finally reunited and resume their relationship. In the epilogue, Mikan marries Natsume and it is presumed that she and Hotaru briefly reunited.
Hotaru is intelligent, rational, and aloof. She is Mikan's best friend and the reason why Mikan came to the academy. She is considered geeky and more than a little strange because of her personality. She often punishes Mikan by hitting her with her inventions. Despite this, Hotaru deeply cares for Mikan, such as when she knocked their math teacher, Jinno-sensei, unconscious, when he was punishing Mikan. She also tends to hog food and take money (a large portion of it came from lending money to Mikan and putting her in debt) for herself. When encouraging Mikan to leave with her mother she says that the bond they had built will continue growing no matter where they are and "if it's them they'll be okay." Hotaru regrets not being able to tell her older brother, Subaru, anything, and "wants her brother back" so she can learn everything about him. Despite her somewhat aloof and distant attitude, she truly cares about her friends and is willing to sacrifice herself to save Mikan and others. Her relation with her brother may seem cool on the outside, as they often insult each other and try to see who is more intelligent, but Hotaru has missed her brother all the years when he was in the academy, and later recognizes the fact that he always loved his family and wants to be closer to her. Mikan inserted a Stealing alice stone into her body at the end of chapter 125.
She belongs to the Technical Class and is a Triple Star. She is often viewed as a genius, and her Invention Alice gains her a lot of respect from others. Her inventions are based on and look similar to animals. Hotaru, despite her young age, has already received support from major companies, and she is offered the chance of going to study abroad. Her name means "Firefly". Most of the time, Hotaru calls Mikan an idiot or a dummy. Despite how she treats her, Hotaru loves Mikan as a sister. She also enjoys teasing, or accurately torturing, Mikan's admirers (Natsume and Ruka). In chapter 175, she and Subaru sacrifices their lives to save Natsume and Nodacchi after changing Natsume's fate. She does this because she truly believes that it is Mikan and Natsume's destiny to be together forever, and since then she has been trapped in the time realm. When Mikan finds out of her best friend's sacrifice, she decides to find her. In the epilogue, it is presumed that Hotaru and Mikan eventually reunited, but she remained trapped in the time realm.
Natsume is the male protagonist in the series. He is a genius and likes to ditch class frequently. He is hated and feared by a lot of students and is unhappy with the school, and knows of the intentions of its adults. Natsume is involved in top-secret missions for the Academy as he belongs to the Dangerous Ability Class. He is the only Special Star in the Elementary Division. Despite his intelligence, he has no other talents, especially in music, and doesn't care about his studies. He is disliked by several students and teachers who see him as a bad influence or because of his Alice. However, he is admired by some of his classmates for his rebellious attitude and has several female admirers, much to his dismay. He possesses the Alice of Fire, and is referred to as the "most powerful student of the lower classes" by Narumi. Early in the series, he is seen as physically ill and frequently going to the hospital. He is later seen coughing up blood. In the Z arc, it is revealed that he actually suffers from the 4th shape of Alice called Limitless, which damages his body each time he uses his Alice. Because of this, he wear two control devices on each of his ears that should control his Alice a bit, but this proves to be futile because his Alice is too strong. In the Time Travel arc, it is discovered that he inherited his illness from his mother. Natsume acknowledges that his illness is shortening his life and that he can die from it.
In the Hime Hana arc, it is revealed that Natsume lived with his father and younger sister, Aoi. His mother died in a car accident when he was young. He was enrolled into the academy because his sister, Aoi, became ill and burned their village down after finding an Alice stone Persona had left for Natsume. To protect Aoi, Natsume took the blame for her and was despised by the villagers, which explains why many students at the academy call him a "murderer". His time in the academy was no better; he is physically and emotionally abused by the Elementary Principal and Persona. He is forced to do secret missions for the academy because the Elementary Principal held Aoi captive and threatened to harm other people Natsume cares for (ex. Ruka and later Mikan). Like Mikan, he is bullied by older students, but he never hesitates to use his Alice on them.
Despite his cold and rude attitude, Natsume truly cares about his friends and often willing to make sacrifices to protect them. He initially hated Mikan, often bullied and ignored her, due to her stubbornness and naivety. However, as he gets to know her, he becomes fond of her, to the point where he gets jealous whenever she is too close to another male. He later on falls in love with her and compares her innocent and cheerful personality to the sun. His love for her is not a secret; as everyone, except for Mikan, knows about it. His love for her is so strong that he is willing to sacrifice his own life to protect her. When Mikan finally reciprocates his feelings, they make a promise to stay together forever and switch Alice stones, completing the tradition of becoming soul mates. Natsume later dies from blood loss and exhaustion in the final battle against the ESP, and is revived when Hotaru and Subaru change time. Four years later, he returns Mikan's lost memories to her and they resume their relationship. In the epilogue, Natsume marries Mikan and they live a happy life together.
Ruka is called Luca in the anime, but in the original manga his name is Ruka Nogi, called Ruka-Pyon/Luca-Pyon by close friends.
Ruka is half French and half Japanese. He is Natsume's childhood friend and often referred by Mikan throughout the story as "Ruka-pyon" (translated as Luca-hop in English). He has a gentle and pleasant personality that balances out that of Natsume. In chapter 48, after Youichi kisses Mikan on the cheek to say thanks, Ruka does the same and asks Mikan to keep it a secret, because even though he loves her, so does Natsume. Hotaru also knows about it and asks him to tell it to Mikan. He always carries around a rabbit as he has the animal pheromone Alice, so he can make them fall in love with him and can communicate.
Tsubasa frequently teases him about his obvious attraction to Mikan; however, he decides to let her go for Natsume's sake. He believes that Natsume needs her more, and that because of Natsume's and Mikan's family history, they were fated to be together forever. He confessed his love to Mikan saying if only time stopped because he didn't want her to go away but also told her that he supports her relationship with Natsume because he loves them both very much. Although he remains in love with Mikan, he is happy for them because he is grateful for Mikan for changing Natsume and bringing him happiness.
He belongs to the Somatic class and is a Triple Star student like Hotaru and Iinchou, but later throws away his stars, and becomes a No-Star, saying how light he felt without them. His stars were returned to him shortly after this incident though. Ruka has the animal pheromone alice the opposite of Narumi's Alice. His alice allows for animals to adore him and with this do as he likes. While using his Alice, Luca is shown to also show an adoring side to the animals. Ruka also is able to understand what animals say. With his alice, Ruka wants to grow up to be a veterinarian. As seen that his Alice isn't very powerful, he doesn't wear any prevention devices to contain his Alice. In the anime, Ruka's Alice wasn't stopped by Mikan's nullification alice as seen in the second to last episode. In the current arc Ruka temporarily has a barrier Alice that was inserted by Mikan's Insertion Alice. He finds out about the Alice in chapter 128 when a bird bounces off his barrier, protecting Mikan.
Yuu is the class representative (thus known by the majority of the class as "Inchō" or "Inchou" however in the English translation of the manga he is known as "Prez"). He has the Alice of Illusion. During the Alice Festival, his illusions were a major hit in the Haunted House attraction of the Latent Ability Class. As stated by Mikan, Natsume, and Ruka, he is a force to be reckoned with. He has his hands full with taking care of Mikan and does not seem to get tired of it. According to the author, he fell in love with Mikan at first sight, but he never pursues his feelings, deciding to be her friend and do anything for her He has an innocent personality and won the Perfect Student Award.
Mikan's mother steals his Alice in the manga causing Mikan, Natsume, Ruka, and Tsubasa to chase after them to get it back. Although, they were mainly after a cure for Hotaru. When Mikan and the others returned, they did not have Iinchō's Alice, but he regains it when Narumi brings it to him.
He is in the Latent Ability Class. He is currently a Triple Star.
Sumire Shouda is the self-proclaimed president of the fanclub Natsume and Luca. She is proud, blunt, bossy, and a bit of a nag, but cares for her friends. She plays the violin and has a cat-dog Alice which gives her significantly increased hearing and tracking capabilities, she also has cat whiskers and ears and walks on all fours while using her Alice. She firmly believes that Alices are superior to normal people and those who don't have or care about their Alices are a shame to the academy. However, despite her pride in being an Alice, she is embarrassed by her own and does not like to show it in public. Her nickname is "Permy" but only Mikan, Natsume, and Kokoro Yomi call her that. She is a double Star and belongs to the Somatic class along with Ruka. Although Sumire is initially hostile towards Mikan (because Mikan received a lot of attention from Natsume and Ruka), she later becomes good friends with her and fights alongside Mikan and her friends against the Elementary School Principal. Her older brother is also an Alice. It is hinted that she has feelings for Koko, her partner and childhood friend, even though she never shows it. In the epilogue, it is revealed that she did start dating Koko.

He has the Alice of summoning bad spirits, a Dangerous Ability type. He is very bright for a three-year-old. Natsume likes him since he feels that the boy is just like him and Natsume is also helping Yōichi to be transferred out of the Dangerous Ability class.
During the Hana Princess arc, he accidentally ate an aging candy that he stole from Hotaru which let him become eleven years older for the time that he is eating the candy. The side effects gave him the ability to switch between younger and older self, although randomly. He still has the mind of a three-year-old when he changes his age, which makes it awkward for Mikan in some situations, because he likes hugging and getting carried by her.

However, his Alice is "Childhood", which is why in chapter 76 of the manga (the only time he appears), it was shown that his parents came to pick him up from the Academy to take home.
As a farewell gift, the rest of the Special Ability class gave him their Alice stones, Mikan included. He accepted all of them except for Mikan's, because he figured that someone else (Natsume) needed it more than he did. Mikan and the others were present when he was picked up, and on the day he left, there was a rainbow in the sky because he felt bliss.
Koko is a young boy from the same class as Mikan. He has the Alice that involves reading a person's mind, causing him to repeat them out loud and often (deliberately) making situations worse. He uses this against Mikan while she was being attacked by Mochu's alice telekinesis. His best friend is Kitsuneme, according to him that is because Kitsuneme is innocent enough that his mind need not to be read even to normal individuals. He is always seen with a smile on his face because when he was younger, Sumire scolded him for not showing any emotion and nobody would be his friend. Now all he does is smile. It is implied that he has feelings for Sumire, but constantly teases her. In the epilogue, it was revealed that he is now dating Sumire.

They have a brother-sister relationship. He has a star shaped mark on the left of his face, which is actually a punishment mark and will put him under pain by the person who gave it to him, which was Rui Amane, who seems to like him. Tsubasa found out about Ruka and Natsume's crush on Mikan when he hugged Mikan and the younger boys glared at him, and enjoys teasing them about their feelings for Mikan. Since Natsume thinks that Mikan has a crush on Tsubasa, he makes it a point to be around them so nothing happens. He is a member of Watching Over Ruka group. Besides Kaname, he is the only one who can stop Mr. Bear since he is Kaname's best friend. He was previously in the Special Ability Class but was transferred to the Dangerous Ability Class, though he hides this fact from Mikan. However, Mikan later finds out that Tsubasa is in the Dangerous Ability Class when he fails to return from a mission. He comes back later on in Chapter 107 as Yuka saved him. In chapter 134 Tsubasa learns that Mikan's Insertion alice has given him the Pheromone alice. In chapter 131, it is confirmed that he is in love with Misaki Harada (Because when Tsubasa goes to save Mikan in the manga, he asks Misaki to be his girlfriend if he came back alive, and she states she thought they had already been going out). Years later, they got married. His name "Tsubasa" means 'Wings'. Before going to the final battle with the ESP and Z, he confessed to Misaki, who returned his feelings. In the epilogue, they get married.
He is a double star. Despite this, Tonouchi states in Chapter 37: "The only reason they decreased his star count was because of his Mark of Punishment. No questions asked, in terms of ability, that fellow has the power of a three-star."

She is also a member of Watching Over Ruka group. And it somehow appears that Kitsuneme and Yome have innocent crushes on her. As a senpai, she takes good care of Mikan, especially in Tsubasa's absence. She is more like a big sister. She is shown to have good fighting abilities as she can easily beat up guys in a fight.

Megane is one of Tsubasa and Misaki's friends. He wears spectacles and he has an Alice of Spirit hopping. 'Megane' is presumably a nickname, since it means glasses/spectacles in Japanese. He can possess any thing from robots to oranges and vases. In the anime, it is said that he has a crush on Megumi during the Special Ability's role-playing game in the Alice Festival.
He belongs to the Special Ability Class.
Yuri is very popular with the girls mainly because of her female pheromone Alice. This is a fact which embarrasses her, but she claims that she is straight. There is a possibility that her name, Yuri, is a play on the Japanese word yuri, which is used to describe lesbian relationships. Yuri can also mean Lily.

Kaname is Tsubasa's best friend. He was a very lonely kid with few friends due to his condition. He possesses the Alice of placing souls into stuffed animals, thus causing them to come to life. He has poor health and his usage of his Alice affects his lifespan. Despite this, he still makes dolls, for it is his way of proving to himself that he can make people happy. And the dolls he made serve as 'evidences of his existence'. He is also the creator of Mr. Bear. He has grown to like Mikan for her kindness and cheerfulness, and is thankful for her friendship with Mr. Bear. Kaname also seems to have a way with women, since in chapter 28, the girls who adopted his dolls came to help him fix up Mr. Bear's house. Mikan and Hotaru once drew a picture that looked like him as 'their ideal man' when they were living in their small village. Tsubasa warned Mikan and Hotaru 'don't fall in love with him, kiddos', and also remarked that Kaname 'really knows how to use his selling points to his greatest advantage...' It is strongly hinted that he suffers from the fourth Alice shape, but never confirmed. As a result of his illness, he is MIA throughout the series and has appeared in two chapters of the series.
According to the anime, his favorite flowers are rape blossoms, which Mr. Bear brought them to Kaname daily during his hospital leave.
He belongs to the Technical Class. He is currently a Double Star.
Ibaragi Nobara (茨木 のばら?)
Nobara is a first year student in the Middle School Division. When she first met Mikan, she thought of Mikan as a cute girl. In the Academy, she is always being hated because of her Ice Alice and thus people nicknaming her "The Snow Woman" or "Ice Princess". Mikan is the first one to approach her with kindness and warmth, leading her to admire Mikan very much. In the Hana Princess arc, when Persona, who refers to her as a "doll", asked her to harm Mikan, she could not do it. She also has multiple personalities, which she used to her advantage in the Hana Princess arc.
After the Hana Princess arc, she was in a room by a window watching Natsume, Mikan and Ruka playing outside. She grew very sad and went over to Persona, who was still recovering from when his Alice backfired (which happened in Chapter 68) and laid her head on his lap. Nobara has a strong attachment to Persona, who feels the same way, despite all the bad things he's done.
In the Sports Festival, Nobara is revealed to be on the Red Team. She knows something about Luna, and tried to tell Mikan. However, Tsubasa, who was carrying Mikan, ran away out of fright from Rui, who was carrying Nobara.
Nobara continues to observe Mikan from a distance, with the desire to talk and to be with her. However, her current position with Persona and the Elementary School Principal doesn't allow her to. It is revealed that Nobara had longed to have a female friend in the Dangerous Ability Class since she is the only girl in the Dangerous Ability Class, and Persona and the Elementary Principal have plans of transferring Mikan to that class. Nobara is deeply concerned by this because she doesn't want Mikan to be in danger.
She was instructed to capture Mikan and Natsume, but she disobeys her orders and faces the consequences as she could not bring herself to harm Mikan. She left Mikan and the gang to fight Persona by herself, so Mikan wouldn't get hurt. She knows about Persona's past and says she will not leave his side. While Persona regrets infecting her, Nobara doesn't blame him for it. Over the next four years, Nobara fully recovered, entered in a relationship with Persona, and gave birth to a daughter.

Hayate thinks Hotaru looks a lot like a game character he really used to love as a child named "Cool Blue Sky". Rui had once said something along the lines of Hayate liking cute guys, but it has not been confirmed yet (he might be a loli/shotacon).
Because of saving Hotaru from the school (chapter 98), Hayate can not go back to the Dangerous Ability Class anymore. As a request from Kakitsubata, Hayate is now allowed to stay in Hanahime-den.

Kusami is a second year at the academy. He owned the "Alice Mask" that Natsume took to hide his face. As a result, Natsume was mistaken as Kusami and deliberately was pushed to join the 'borrowing race' event. After the 'love confessed fireworks by the mask man' they noticed that the guy who ran the race was not Kusami at all, so technically the white team lost by default.
Another encounter was when Kusami looked for Natsume and introduced himself as his classmate before he was transferred at the middle school department the previous year.
He also promised Natsume that he will never tell anyone that the culprit for the white team's default was actually Natsume himself. Before he could talk more Natsume once again took his mask and ran toward Mikan and hugged her to comfort her. After that he returned the mask to Kusami and left.
He is the nearly bald kid that hangs around with Natsume. He has the Telekinesis Alice. At the beginning of the anime, he used his Alice on Mikan while Koko was reading her mind. He hates Mikan at first, but he later becomes friends with her. (Even to a comedic point, as seen in chapter 89)

In the manga, when Akira is first introduced, he puts Mikan on his lap, but Tsubasa tells her to get away from him saying, "Leave that fellow now Mikan.". When Mikan eats an aging candy that turns her into a 15-year-old in chapter 34, Tono orders her to sleep with him, much to Tsubasa's disgust. Tono is Tsubasa's senior and he seems to be pretty close with him. He is a popular and good-looking young man with long black hair.
Mikan likes him very much and gets along with him well. Natsume, like Tsubasa, doesn't get along with him. He has grown attached to Mikan as well. He is concerned for her welfare in the academy and protects her whenever he can. When Mikan goes to retrieve the antidote that would help Hotaru when she is poisoned, he gives her an alice stone.

He sometimes wears glasses, to enhance his already excellent eyesight.
Sakurano is student council president and is the main representative for the school. In the manga, he is best friends with Subaru Imai. Furthermore, when they are in the High School division, he and Subaru posed as ghosts looking for a victim. It is revealed in the manga that he has three Alices, teleportation, intuition, and wish/prayer (telepathy).
Sakurano knew Subaru since elementary school, so they are very close. It is revealed that he knew Mikan's parents when he was young. Because of this, he and Subaru care for Mikan very much and will protect her no matter what happens. He has once made an Alice Stone for Mikan, and had it follow her wherever she goes. His Alice Stone was the one who helped Mikan get to Natsume during the Alice Stone game. He is rather fond of Mikan.
He helps Mikan in a lot of situation. In a special chapter about Subaru and himself, it was shown that they used to call each other names and were caught by Jinno for detention. When he was young, he is shown to be very arrogant only to Subaru while he pretended to be nice to others.
He is currently a special star and appears in both the anime and manga.
Subaru is first seen in the Alice Festival Ceremony. He is Hotaru's older brother, thus his looks and attitude is very similar to Hotaru's. Even though he acts cool in front of Hotaru, he truly cares for her. He is normally cold and he doesn't hesitate to throw insults at Hotaru, though he has a soft spot for Mikan. He is second in command to Sakurano and is the second representative of the school. He came to the Alice Academy when he was 5 years old.
When he was younger and was in the elementary school division, he went to a festival called Hana (lit. ‘‘Flower’’) Princess, where he had a terrible experience. A rumor has said that he had met an evil ghost from a legend, which actually turns out to be Persona. He was one of the only people to survive Persona's Mark of Death. His Alice can heal wounds and can memorize the pain and transfer it to another person or animal.
It was shown in volume 12 of the manga that Subaru and Shūichi knew Mikan's father and mother, Yuka Azumi, when they were young. The two of them seem to care very much for Mikan, and protects her from those who are after her. In a special chapter about Shūichi and himself, he disliked Shūichi for saying hurtful things and thought that he is arrogant because he has 3 Alices. It also shows that he really likes Yuka.
Before Hotaru time traveled he told her that he never once forgot about his family, and is shown that he always wrote to them, but was never allowed to send the letters.
In the most recent chapters (133 or so), they showed that he was marked by Koizumi; however, it is unknown for how long this has been, and to what extent he is under her control. He later returned to normal because Hotaru, who has the stealing alice inserted in her by Mikan, removed Luna's alice from his body. After Natsume dies, Subaru goes with Hotaru to change his fate, but it results in them becoming trapped in the time realm because changing history is forbidden. It is presumed that Subaru eventually returned to the present with his sister.
He is currently a Special Star and appears in both the anime and manga.
His name "Subaru" means 'Pleiades'.
Yamanouchi Shizune (山之内 静音?)
Shizuka is a third year student in the High School Division. She is quite the schemer. She is the representative for the Technical Class and Hotaru Imai's senior. Her Alice is sound-using, which makes her able to control creatures (including plants) by her voice.
She was actually the one who hooked up Hotaru with her camera and got her into the blackmailing business. She is also part of the Hana Princess and is called Kakitsubata (iris flower). She serves Hī.
She is a Special Star Student and appears in the manga and anime.
Goshima Hijiri (五島 聖?)
He became the new head of the Student Council. He was instructed by the High School Principal to assist Mikan and the others in the escape from the disciplinary group of the academy. He is the representative of the Somatic types. He always has on a smile and helped Mikan discover her Stealing Alice.
His Alice allows him to change appearances.
He only appears in the manga. In the recent chapters (chapter 134) it is revealed that Goshima was the one who betrayed Mikan and the others, while they were escaping the Elementary School Principal. It is uncertain as to why he is actually working with the Elementary Principal. He used his alice to transform into Tsubasa, all though Tono believed it was Nodacchi until the near end. He was ordered by the ESP to kill Yuka so that Mikan cannot escape. Goshima does this by planting a bomb that explodes and kills Yuka almost instantly. Later on in the series he disguises himself as the ESP and gets his throat cut by Narumi's poisonous claws, which severally injures him.
It is later revealed that he has been secretly protecting Mikan after she has lost her memories by transforming his face to become one of her close friends at normal school. Goshima tells Mikan that he was forced by the ESP to do evil things he did and expresses remorse for Yuka's death. The fact that he has been protecting her and his apology is sincere prompts Mikan to forgive him.
Amane Rui (周 瑠衣?)
Rui is a Dangerous Ability type. He is fond of guys that are younger than he is. Rui is the person who gave Tsubasa the star on his cheek called the "Mark of Obedience", but when he was young, Rui gave him 3 stars on his cheek. Rui also has a huge crush on Tsubasa, so Tsubasa tries to avoid him as much as possible. He seems to show care and concern for Nobara.
In the Hana Hime arc he is seen with two other Dangerous Type students to deliver Natsume's "punishment." In the current arc he used his Curse Alice on Narumi-sensei but was stopped by Jinno-sensei's lightning Alice.
He also has feminine features.
He only appears in the manga.
Yakumo Hajime (八雲 一?)
He is a Dangerous Ability type and is usually a calm and composed person. He has a bandage over his face. In the manga, he helps Persona in the Hana Princess arc. His Alice is insect-control.
He only appears in the manga.
Narumi L. Anju
Narumi noticed Mikan's potential and had her enrolled in Alice Academy. He is her homeroom teacher and also teaches Japanese. He often deals with Natsume when he gets in trouble or tries to break out of the academy. He has the human inclination pheromone Alice, which suits his feminine but friendly personality. He is also the moderating teacher of the Somatic types. Narumi gave Mikan a star when Sumire became good friends with her and because of her bravery when she was trapped in a warehouse (with Sumire and Natsume).
Even though he is a bit negligent as a teacher, he loves his students and wants to protect them. In both the manga and anime Narumi allows Mikan to call him "Dad" which is ironic because Mikan is the daughter of his unrequited love, Yuka Azumi. In fact, it is revealed that his reason for staying at the school is to protect the students; a promise he made to Yuka when he last saw her as a student. He has a special regard for Mikan due to her being Yuka's daughter. As a teenager he was so desperate to make Yuka love him that, after hearing rumors about her and Shiki, he confessed and kissed her, but she rejected his confession. He remains in love with Yuka, but respects that he can never replace Izumi in her heart. When he is poisoned by Persona (under the orders of the Elementary School Principal), he tries to hide the black marks for a long time so that Mikan's Stealing Alice would not be discovered. In the end, he collapses in front of Mikan and she draws it out of him using her will even thought he tries to stop her. It is later shown that Narumi wants to leave the academy with Mikan and her mother, Yuka. When he was young and a student, Narumi was very disobedient and did undercover work for the academy. After Yuka's death, he becomes a spy for the academy to learn information about Z and the ESP. It is soon revealed that Narumi's reason for doing this is not only to protect Mikan but to kill the ESP himself to exact his revenge on the ESP for arranging Yuka's death. After the ESP's death, he returns to being the teacher for Class B and helps search for Mikan after she is expelled.
Narumi's full name of Narumi L. Anju is revealed during Noda-sensei's time trip to the past when Narumi was an elementary student at the academy.
Misaki is a teacher of at the academy. Seems to be stoic in his expressions, yet cares for the students. During his first meeting with Mikan, he helped her and introduced her to the Academy. He has the Alice to grow plants which mutate and come to life, and is often annoyed by Narumi, who steals his 'bean whips'.
He is appealing to the girls of the Technical class, especially to Anna and Nonoko, who invited him to go with them in the last dance but he rejected them.
He is Narumi's classmate during school days and frequently bullied and teased by him. Nonetheless, their friendship somehow persisted.
In Chapter 39, Misaki invites Narumi for a few drink, which was an excuse to look out for him and prevent Narumi from doing anything stupid. But Narumi manages to escape by using his pheromone Alice, without his restraining earring, while kissing Misaki on the lips and caused Misaki to pass out even though he took an anti-pheromone pill.
Serina is a mysterious English teacher at the school. She is almost always seen with her crystal ball, especially since her Alice is of 'sight', which enables her to see things happening anywhere at present time. She is seen often with Narumi, but in the series, she rarely leaves the faculty room. She is the Latent Ability Class teacher.
Jinno (sometimes called Jin-Jin) is the head teacher of the Elementary Division and teaches math. (A frog on his shoulder punctuates every statement he makes with a croak.) His Alice is lightning, which is inherited from his family. He is a cold-hearted man who does not hesitate to use his Alice to punish his students. He is least trustful of Mikan. He is the reason for Mikan's 'no star' rating in the beginning. He softened up at the end of the anime series, he adapted to Mr. Narumi's style of teaching. (Ex. When Ruka goes on a rampage trying to save Natsume, Sumire comes for Mikan during the middle of her make-up exam. Jinno tells Mikan that she should've "gone to the bathroom before the exam started" and that he would only give her "an hour" to use it.)
During the Sport and Culture Festival, Jinno has to go through the cosplay door. He comes out in the costume of a "hard-gay", which makes a big laugh to the audiences, and makes him extremely angry.
Later, in the series, it's revealed that Jinno works for the High School Principal. He became a teacher same time as for Izumi, repeatedly irritated by Izumi for his deeds. He is married and has three children. After the ESP's death, he becomes the new elementary school principal.
He may look tough, but he easily gets scared by ghosts or haunted houses and releases a large amount of electricity in the process.
Nodacchi appears later in the series. He has the Alice of time-traveling. He seems to like appearing out of nowhere, but in fact, it's because he often cannot control when he is going to disappear(to strange time dimensions) or appear (back in school) - caused by faults in his ability. He is an easygoing and carefree teacher; that is why the Special Ability type students like him so much.
He also knew Mikan's mother and father very well, hence why he is always there to help her at any time.
He is the moderator of the Special Ability Class. His ability control device is a bangle he wears on his wrist, which was put on him by the Elementary School Principal the day Mikan's father was killed so that he couldn't go back to save him. Tono also suspects him of being a traitor in their group when Mikan and Yuka are trying to escape the school, but it turns out to be Goshima disguised as Tsubasa. He is the one who opposed Hotaru's plan to change Natsume's fate because it will have dangerous consequences; however, he helps her and Subaru revive Natsume, and as a result the Imai siblings are trapped in the time realm. He then volunteers to help Mikan reunite with Hotaru.
Fukutan is Elementary Class B's substitute teacher because of the frequent absence of Narumi. He is a teacher of the Somatic types and he also teaches Home Economics. The students, except for Mikan, and Yū, do not respect him and usually torment him, leaving him to run out of the room in fright and tears.
He desperately wants Narumi to stay and teach his students instead of him. His Alice is the ability to grow his hair to extreme lengths and control it (that's why he always ties his hair as the ribbon controls his powers).
Makihara is the Social Studies teacher and also is the moderator of the Latent Ability Class. In the anime, he appeared with several other teachers while Mikan and Sumire ran out of the Academy as they were trying to save Natsume. He is mentioned briefly by Persona (disguised as Serio) in the Social Studies exam. In the manga, he accompanies Narumi in one of the trips made to persuade Ruka and Natsume to enter Gakuen Alice.
Yukihira Izumi (行平 泉水?)
Izumi was Mikan's father and the former moderating teacher of the Special Ability Class. His ability was discovered when he was already an adult. He entered the Academy as a teacher when he was 22, nineteen years prior to the events of the main story. The cause of his death is not known but Yuka believed that he was murdered by someone working in the Academy. His death was said to be suicide at the time, but it was discovered that he was accidentally killed by Persona under the influence of the Elementary School Principal. The High School Principal is, in fact, Izumi's older brother and also the one who discovered Izumi's Alice when he saw a photo of him in one of their letter correspondences while using his ability to detect other people's Alice by seeing them in person or in photographs.
In contrast to his older brother's more serious character, Izumi had a very cheerful and outgoing personality, which was inherited by Mikan, and for which he was scolded and punished by Jinno-sensei. It is revealed that he was very popular with his fellow students, a bad scholar and not very bright, much like Mikan. However, when provoked, he could be very intimidating. He was the former leader of a motorcycle gang back in his hometown. Two years after his arrival, Izumi was informed by Jinno that he was going to be put in charge of the new Special Ability Class, as well as the new 'special' students within the class. Later on, he was summoned by the Elementary School Principal who informed him that the new 'special' students he was looking after had dangerous abilities. Izumi never thought he would be asked to supervise and severely punish the special students but being a teacher with the Nullification Alice, it was a job specially suited for him. Izumi was not happy at all by this and opposed to it greatly. He was not shy around the girls and wondered if he would be teaching high school girls. When he first met Yuka while she was trying to escape from the Academy he boldly told her that "he could see her panties clearly". Despite their 12-year age difference, Izumi and Yuka fell in love and went on to have a relationship, resulting in Yuka becoming pregnant with Mikan, who was born after his death.
In chapter 115 Izumi comes into contact with Mikan, who is trying to protect him from dying, and he seems to remember her name when she calls him daddy. He was on his way to see the Elementary School Principal, because he heard that Rei (Persona) was out. When he arrives, Rei is there as well. The Elementary School Principal then proceeds to trick Rei by saying it was all Izumi's fault that he had been locked in his cell. This confused Rei since Izumi was known to have the Nullification Alice. In the resulting chaos, Rei's Alice goes out of control. In Chapter 116, it is shown that Rei's Alice was so powerful that Izumi couldn't nullify it and caused his unintentional death. Before he dies Izumi tells Rei that it's not his fault.
Persona / Rei Serio
Persona is a mysterious teacher who wears a mask at all times. He is the moderator for the Dangerous Ability Class and works as a liaison between the Academy and the Japanese government. His Alice is not revealed until the Hanahime-den arc of the manga (though in Chapter 27, he uses it to kill a plant, what it actually does is not explained until later chapters) and is the Mark of Death. It allows him to kill anything which he comes in contact with. His Alice first effects the 'victim' by creating dark patches on the skin/area of contact; these dark patches begin to spread throughout the organism and cause a painful and hot sensation. The Alice then begins to decay the body from the inside and eventually causes death. He can also use his Alice to create a cloud of black smoke which, though it does not kill, causes a severe pain to whomever it touches. Persona is not able to control his Alice himself and thus has many Control Devices - the most notable of which is his white mask. The mask makes it possible for him to touch living organisms without harming them. He also wears a dangling earring on his left ear which keeps his Alice from rotting his own body. This was later destroyed by Mikan and allowed his body to begin decaying again.
In the beginning of the series Persona is seen to be a very cold and cruel character and is the cause of much of Natsume's grief. It is his duty to assign tasks, or 'missions', to various students - and especially to Natsume - which are often very dangerous. Persona also collects students for the Academy in special cases; for example he, Makihara and Narumi were assigned to collect Natsume as seen in Luca's flashback in Chapter 65. It is also revealed that after acquiring Natsume, Persona took his younger sister, Aoi, and held her 'hostage' in the dungeons beneath the Hanahime-den. His motive behind this is obscure though it is speculated that he took her in order to gain leverage over Natsume. However, Persona became very close to Aoi who later said to Mikan (in the Hanahime-den arc) that Persona was very kind and gentle to her and that he was a very sad and lonely person who had spent his childhood in the very dungeon in which he kept Aoi. In addition to developing a bond with Aoi, he has a strong attachment to Nobara, who knows of Persona's sadness and pain. Nobara was the first person, after Izumi, to accept him and treat him with kindness. However, he gets very angry when he believed Aoi and Nobara "betrayed" him and threatened to infect them (and succeed with Nobara in the Time Travel arc). As the manga progresses, it is explained that he was 'too dangerous' to be placed with the other students, and so he was kept in the Hanahime-den. Due to this, he accumulated a great amount of resent and hatred for most other people (the students often referred to him as a monster). During his stay in the dungeon, he was very close to Izumi because he seemed to be the only person who was unafraid of him, and because of his Nullification Alice, he was able to touch Persona without being harmed. In Chapter 114 his real name is revealed to be Rei, it is a name which Izumi gave to him as when he was first born, his Alice had decayed his body so badly that his parents abandoned him completely. In Chapter 116 it is shown that Rei accidentally killed Izumi after being manipulated by the Elementary School Principal's words. He regrets what he had done, but is so brainwashed by the ESP that he doesn't understand the harm he inflicts on others. He learns of his mistakes when Nobara willingly gets infected as she begs him to change. Mikan forgives him after he offers to help her escape from the ESP and promises to atone his sins. After the battle against the ESP, Persona resigns from the academy to compensate for his sins. Over the next four years, Persona eventually reunited with Nobara and they had a daughter together.
The Elementary School Principal, or ESP for short. He is a dark, mysterious person who has the appearance of a child, even though he is actually older than he appears. When she first meets him, Mikan is shocked to discover that he is actually a principal. Manipulative and corrupt, he is revealed to be the source of the academy's chaos and tragedies, even going as far as to commit blackmail, abuse, and murder to get what he wants. Even though the rest of the academy is aware of his crimes, they feel that they can do nothing about it because of his manipulations. In fact, his hold over Luna is so strong that she actually believes she is in love with him, even though he is simply using her to torture Yuka. His intentions were initially unknown, but it is later revealed that he wants more control over the government, and that he needs to collect as many Alices as possible to do so. However, his Clone Alice is weak due to his body.
His child appearance was caused by Yuka inserting multiple Alice stones into his body. Upon discovering Yuka's Stealing Alice, he caused her great emotional pain by forcing her to steal other Alices and isolating her from others. He even went as far as to demand her hand in marriage and told her that she would never be free from him. When Izumi returned Yuka's feelings, the ESP manipulated Persona into killing Izumi which he then admitted to Yuka. She then inserted Alice stones into his body causing it to shrink. He spent the next twelve years searching for her to punish her for that and for running away, but when he discovers that Yuka's daughter, Mikan, has the same Alice, he decides that Yuka is now useless to him and plans on using Mikan as her replacement.
He has Mikan transferred to the Dangerous Ability Class, but she escapes with the help of her friends. To prevent her from leaving, the ESP orders Goshima to kill Yuka, and is granted possession of Mikan with Shiki's approval but only on the condition that he does not harm her. Unable to use her Alice because of this deal, the ESP joins forces with Z's boss to cause chaos in the academy that causes Mikan to use her Alice. In the subsequent battle against the students and teachers, the ESP is finally defeated by Luna, who takes his soul, killing him.
She is the Middle School Division Principal. She is seen briefly in the anime, but she appears more in the manga. Hī is the founder and the one in charge of the Hana Princess. She's the owner of the strongest Barrier Alice, so she is referred to as the academy's protecting goddess.
She hates Persona, and in fact dislikes men in general. Men are usually not allowed to set foot near her. She has some sort of a barrier Alice that bars people within the barrier's vicinity to use their Alice. She is described as an oddball because of her extreme interest in girls.
She invited both Mikan and Hotaru to join the Hana Princess Festival. She thought of Mikan as an interesting girl, which is why she wanted to meet her.
While Mikan and the others were trying to rescue Aoi, Hī was supposed to have the barrier up, however she purposely loosened it around Mikan. She was seen laughing when Mikan caused Persona's Alice to start eating away at his own body.
In the manga, when Mikan and company went back in time, it was revealed that Hī actually knew Mikan's mother, Yuka. Because of her "Steal Alice" and "Insertion Alice" Yuka was able to maintain Hī's age. After this, she had complete trust in Yuka.
It is also stated that she is a blood relative of Shiki Masachika.
Her house also became the refuge of Mikan and Natsume when they were being chased by, the Elementary School Principal.
The High School Principal. He is Mikan's paternal uncle and Izumi's older brother. He hates and opposes the Elementary Principal because he has also hated being used by the academy as he has had no outside contact and has lived in the academy since he was young. In addition to the fact he supports Mikan and Yuka, he is willing to stop the Elementary Principal and his plans. He protects Mikan secretly. Once Mikan got caught by the academy, he instructed Goshima to save Mikan. In chapter 99, Mikan, Natsume, Hotaru, Ruka and Narumi are being chased by the elementary school principal, but the High School Principal helps them. He tells Mikan he is her uncle and the older brother of her father. He revealed the history of her father and Yuka Azumi to Mikan, further shocking Mikan. He actually feels guilty for the death of his younger brother because he was the one who had introduced Izumi to the academy which brought his death. Kazu cherished his younger brother the most because he never met the rest of his family or had any contact to the outside world since he was a child. Despite their 18-year age gap, Kazu doted on Izumi and treated him as his child than a brother.
He has two Alices; one of them is the power to detect other people's Alice upon sight, either in person or via photographs, the other, "longevity", grants him a long life and the ability to not appear to have grown old. Because of his Alice, he is regarded as a "god" in the academy. In recent chapters Mikan revealed that once a week he and Shiki would visit her in the Labyrinth Mansion. He also helps Mikan with her studies. Due to him making Izumi act formal with him before his death, he asks Mikan to call him "Uncle" and dotes on her, as she reminds him of his late brother.
A former member of Z and Yuka's partner. When he was in the academy, he was assigned to protect Yuka and fell in love with her, but knew that Yuka was in love with Izumi and that staying by her side was enough for him. Yuka has placed several different Alices inside his body because of her Alice ability, which is why he has more than the known limit of Alices to use. He is the first one in which she implanted alice stones. His original Alice was the Barrier Alice, and he is said to have a constitution that is compatible with all Alices. He is also a blood relative of the Middle School Principal, Hii. Later on, the Middle School Principal has fallen ill and her barrier casted protecting the school was loosened."Z" then invaded the school and Shiki contracted with the Elementary School Principal. In exchange of Shiki fixing the barrier and becoming the next Middle School Principal, he made the Elementary School Principal promise to follow four terms. He becomes the new MSP and often visits Mikan after the ESP imprisons her. Shiki is very kind to Mikan and always says encouraging words to her.
He only appears in the manga. He is also hinted to be very selfish yet is a very kind person. It is also hinted he is rather stupid in human interactions but he has many benefits.
Yuka Azumi/ Yuka Yukihira
Azumi Yuka (安積 柚香?)
Yuka is a member of the Anti-Alice organization called Zero and is referred to as "That Person". Yuka was sold to the academy by her parents because they needed money, and has two younger siblings. She is later revealed to be Mikan’s mother, who gave birth to Mikan at the age of 17 after escaping from the academy. She was Narumi's senior and he was one of her closest friends during her time in the academy but she did not reciprocate his feelings for her. She was also best friends with Kaoru and the former best friend of Luna Koizumi. It is revealed in one of the later chapters that, even though Yuka looked smart, she was on the lower side of the intelligence line. She first met Izumi Yukihira at the age of 10, when she was trying to escape from the academy. They did not get along at first but after he comforted her about her not seeing or hearing from her family, they become friends, even though they still fought. She started falling in love with him even though she was 10 years old and despite the 12 year age difference between them. She confessed to him when she was 16; he rejected her at first but later returned her feelings and they began a relationship, which resulted in her becoming pregnant with Mikan. She was devastated when Izumi died and planted several Alice stones in the ESP after he admitted to killing Izumi. She then escaped with the help of the HSP and other teachers. She first went to her parents' house but left when they notified the academy. She wandered alone until she went to Kaoru's house where she gave birth to Mikan. They lived with Kaoru and her husband for several months until Yuka decided to leave. She was forced to give Mikan up to an elderly man when Mikan fell ill and the academy was close to capturing them. Although she knew she had done what was best for her child, she was deeply saddened that she was giving her daughter up and not being able to have the happy family she wanted with Izumi.
She has three Alices. The first is "teleportation". For most of her time at school, everyone thought this was her only Alice. It was later discovered that she also had the "stealing" alice and the "insertion" alice, which allowed her to take other people's Alices in the form of an alice stone and insert alice stones into other people, which would give them the Alice.
In the Z arc, after meeting the now grown Mikan for the first time, Mikan shouted at that she hated Yuka for stealing Linchou's Alice and for causing Hotaru's injury. Yuka was saddened by the experience and recalled both Izumi and Mikan as a baby. When she learned of the Elementary Principal plans to use Mikan, Yuka returned to the academy to retrieve Mikan so that she wouldn't follow the same path that Yuka had. In the High School Arc, Yuka and Mikan reunite. They embrace and tell each other that they love each other. As they tried to escape, Yuka dies to protect Narumi from a bomb that was planted by Hijiri Goshima (disguised as Tsubasa). She is shown later in the chapter, in spirit form with Izumi as they are getting ready to be married. Yuka was buried with Izumi and her last name was posthumously changed to Yukihira.
Koizumi Runa (小泉 月?)
Luna is a new transfer student in Mikan's class. Her introduction started with her wanting to sit next to Natsume, but Mikan is in the seat she desires. Luna coughs viciously, so Mikan gets up from her seat, which is when Natsume grabs her arm and says, "What are you doing? I'm the one that gets to decide who sits beside me. So Mikan, stay here." Everyone is surprised at what Natsume says, but then Luna coughs out blood, so Natsume had no choice but to let Luna sit next to him. She is currently a member of the Dangerous Ability Division and holds a grudge on Mikan's mother, Yuka (she also knew Natsume's mother too and that she didn't like her very much). Luna was sent to awaken Mikan's stealing Alice, and uses her own Alice to turn everyone against Mikan. In the manga series it appeared that Mikan ended up stealing Luna's Alice when Mikan was forced to join the Dangerous Ability's Class; however, since then, she has been seen using it. Luna's Alice is the Soul-sucking Alice, which allows her to control people who have been marked with a black spot on their neck. It has also been stated that she can kill people using the same method; this only seen when she takes the ESP's soul and kills him.
Luna is Yuka's ex-best friend. They met in elementary school and Luna, who admired Yuka, asked Yuka to be friends with her. However, by middle school, they became estranged when Yuka accidentally stole her Alice and that Luna was jealous that Yuka was receiving a lot of attention from the ESP. Luna is in love with the Elementary Principal, because he treated her with kindness while everyone, but Yuka, rejected her. When Yuka placed Alice Stones in the ESP's body, Luna promised to help him capture and punish Yuka. She later became Mikan's classmate because of a mission given to her by the Elementary School Principal. She is in her 11-year-old appearance because of eating the banned Gulliver candy (in order to become Mikan's classmate). She also sets out to sour Mikan and Natsume's relationship, not only out of hate towards them but also for her hatred for their parents, especially towards Yuka. In chapter 137, as Yuka dies, Luna saw that she was wrong to do those hurtful things that she did and forgave Yuka. Realizing that the ESP had deliberately brainwashed her and was responsible for Yuka's death, Luna questions her loyalty towards him. In chapter 165, Luna, wanting to make amends with Yuka, uses her Alice to take the ESP's soul, but promises to cherish him despite his crimes. Luna reveals that she is suffering from the same retroprogressing as the ESP due to eating too much Gulliver's Candy.
Reo is a graduate from the Academy, who turned into an international celebrity. He is first seen in Episode 13. He came to Alice Academy to perform in the Opening Ceremony of the Alice Festival. During the performance, he faked an injury and took the chance to kidnap Natsume in the hospital. He even tries to steal Mikan after discovering that she is Yuka's daughter. He despises the academy for its exploitation of the students and their Alices.
After he failed to kidnap Natsume the first time, he manipulates Ruka (episode 23) to do his bidding. His ability control device is the earring he has in his left ear. Narumi was Reo's senpai when they were in the Academy, and out of both of them, Reo thought that Narumi would be the one that would retaliate against the Academy, but now he believes that Narumi had betrayed him. He and Narumi liked Mikan's mother. In the anime, Narumi slaps some sense in him during an attack on the academy and reconcile. In the current arc, he sneaks back into the academy with Z to kill the ESP and later teams up with Narumi. It is presumed that after the ESP's death, he quits "Z" and returns to the academy.
Having appeared only once, he is a member of "Z" organization, and has the Alice that turns people to stone. This is why he is sometimes called 'Medusa' by other members of "Z", and is a 'sadist' that enjoyed harming Mikan and her friends.
He is Reo Mouri's agent. He has the barrier Alice, which renders other Alices useless when caught inside the barrier. He also used to go to the Academy.
Bear-san (Mr.ベア?) A mute teddy bear with a freedom-loving soul, commonly referred to as "Bear". Despite its cute appearance, it is short-tempered and frequently lashes to any stranger that approaches him. It seems to enjoy beating up Mikan.
He only listens to Kaname, his creator, and Kaname's best friend, Tsubasa. However, even though neither Kaname nor Tsubasa were near him, he appeared to be listening to Mikan's instructions and playing with her when he joined her dodgeball team. He first appeared in episode 3 when Mikan went into the Northern Woods which was dared by Natsume who wanted to find out her Alice. Later, Mr. Bear became friends with Mikan and saves her several times. He later befriends Youichi and saves him when Youichi was cornered by the Fuukitai. Bear is also Mikan's companion inside the Labyrinth Mansion.

Hyuuga Aoi (日向 葵?)
Aoi is Natsume's younger sister. Unlike Natsume, Aoi is a humorous, cheerful girl and a constant victim of Natsume's fists. Ever since Natsume entered the Academy, she has been held captive by Persona as a way to make Natsume behave. She, however, doesn't know how cruel Persona is and thinks of him as a kind person. She is discovered by Mikan in the Hanahime den's basement in volume 12, chapter 66. It is revealed that Aoi and Mikan are very similar in personality. Ruka previously revealed that it was she who had started the fire that destroyed her home and Natsume took the blame to protect her from the academy Aoi still ended up in the academy and was imprisoned by Persona, and was used as a decoy to make Natsume do dangerous missions.. It was all a plot of Persona's to ensure Natsume's attendance to the school. She took an alice stone that would make her power over fire go crazy. The stone was originally meant for Natsume, but Aoi found it on the windowsill. During her encounter with Mikan it is revealed that she is now blind and has no memories from that event; however, she does regain her memories and sight later in the manga. Aoi has lost her Alice, which was Childhood, the first form of Alice ability, and she is the only Non-Alice person in the Academy. Because of this, she is allowed to go home and reunite with her and Natsume's father. She appears in the anime once in a flashback calling out to Natsume for help.
Kaoru Igarashi (Hyuuga)
Igarashi Kaoru (五十嵐 馨?)
Natsume and Aoi's mother. Luna knew the history of Kaoru, which she hinted when she slapped Natsume across his face and said his red eyes were "evil like his dead mother". She worked as a spy for the High School Principal and served under the Middle School Principal. She was also shown to be a member of the 'Hana Hime'. Nodacchi said that Kaoru looked difficult to be around but no one hated her because of her kindness to others.
She is similar to her son in looks and personality; seen in chapter 107, when she seduced one of the male students younger than she was (later revealed to be Natsume and Aoi's father, as well as her future husband) when she is found by Yuka and Izumi. She later becomes Yuka's best friend and helps her with the Stealing Alice and makes it possible to insert Alices into people. Kaoru also takes in Yuka when she runs away from the academy and helps raise Mikan until Yuka decides to leave and not cause any more burden to Kaoru, who by then was pregnant with Natsume and frequently ill.
In chapter 122, it is revealed that she died from a car accident, but Natsume and his father and sister believe that someone planned to kill her because of her criticism towards the academy.
Her Alice was the Memory Processing Alice, which let her see memories of any living being. She used her Alice to work undercover at the Academy, and gathered information about the Elementary School Principal. It is later discovered that her Alice Type is the fourth shape, which is limitless but shortens the users life every time it is used. This was subsequently passed onto her son, Natsume, which is what she feared most when he was born.
Mr. Hyuuga is Natsume and Aoi's father. He is a painter and there are quite a number of artworks in his house. He attended the Academy and was the student who was seduced by Kaoru in chapter 107. He has the fire alice that his children inherited from him. He is seen to be very cheerful when he was still a student at the academy. During the timetrip to the past, he is shown helping Yuka with Mikan's birth. After Kaoru's death, he raised Natsume and Aoi alone until Natsume was taken by the academy. He was injured in the fire that Aoi accidentally started on their town. When Natsume is about to leave, Mr. Hyuuga, although injured, begs for Natsume to stay. At the end of the Hime Hana arc, he picks up Aoi and hugs Natsume.
Mr. Hyuuga's first name has never been revealed in the anime or manga. The first name of "Ioran" was actually an error from a fan made translation of chapter 107. The error occurs when Izumi and Yuka walk in on Kaoru and Mr. Hyuuga in a compromising position in the Special Ability Class room. Izumi calls out Igarashi (Kaoru's last name), however it was incorrectly translated as Ioran causing some fans of the series to believe it was Mr. Hyuuga's first name.
Ruka's mother is French. When Ruka was still young, she desperately tried to protect Ruka from being taken away by the people from the Academy and even threatened them with a knife saying she would kill or be killed to stop them from taking Ruka. She was against Ruka befriending Natsume but she eventually realizes that she was stopping Ruka from being happy and needs to let him have more freedom. She also lets him go with Natsume to the academy to support Natsume. She only appears in the manga. She is said to be really beautiful.
Mikan's grandfather adopted her when she was an infant, after her mother left her in his care to protect her from the academy. He is not related to Mikan by blood, but she still considers him as her grandfather. He had worked in a temple and daycare. He is hard on Mikan but cares deeply for her. He tries to get her back after she leaves for the academy but lets her stay when she writes him letters about her decision to go to the academy.
A robotic penguin built by Hotaru in the manga for a client. The client returned it when it began crying from being separated from Hotaru. It has a pouch from which odd tools are sometimes pulled out. It figured prominently in the Z arc when it stowed away in Mikan's backpack and eventually ends up saving the day and sadly vanishes into the depths of a hole in the ground not to be seen again. It only appears in the manga. TokyoPop has officially named him "Pengy." Penguin saved Mikan at the end but will likely not return as said in the profile.

She is the robotic rector of the dormitory of Alice Academy. Takahashi can be really strict at times when she has to follow orders. She is introduced by linchō to Mikan when she arrived in the Academy.
A robot that looks exactly like Mikan, which Hotaru first invented when she came to the Academy. She only exists in the anime.
