Ryuko Matoi (纏 流子 Matoi Ryūko) is a 17-year-old schoolgirl who transfers to Honnouji Academy in order to find the one who murdered her father Isshin Matoi. She possesses the Scisssor Blade, one half of the Rending Scissors (断ち斬りバサミ Tachikiri Basami) that Isshin created to destroy uniforms empowered by Life Fibers.[ep 1] At the start of the series, she acquires a special "kamui" uniform named Senketsu, which grants her special abilities.[ep 1] She lives with the Mankanshoku family.[ep 2] Ryuko is later revealed to be Satsuki's presumed dead younger sister during the battle at the Honnouji Academy Cultural & Sports Grand Festival, revealed to have become a human infused with Life Fibers as the result of her being experimented on as a newborn baby by their mother Ragyo.[ep 18][ep 19]
Senketsu (鮮血 Senketsu, lit. "fresh blood")[ep 3] is a talking sailor uniform that Ryuko finds beneath her house. He is a kamui (神衣, lit. "Godrobe"), an outfit made entirely of Life Fibers, which provides its wearer with superhuman abilities in exchange for their blood. Initially, it absorbs a large amount of her blood and only allows her to act for a limited time, however, it is soon able to fully synchronize with Ryuko as she gets over her embarrassment of wearing such a skimpy outfit.[ep 3] Whenever Ryuko destroys a Goku Uniform, Senketsu absorbs its Life Fiber.[ep 3] Mikisugi later reveals that Issei Matoi designed Senketsu from Ryuko's DNA to enable her to fight against the propagators of the Life Fibers.[ep 16][ep 17] It was only after the revelation of Ryuko's hybrid nature that Senketsu is revealed to be partially human. Though Ryuko defeats Ragyo, Senketsu starts dissolving from having absorbed both their allies' Life Fiber clothing and Ragyo's as he uses his final moments to safety get Ryuko back to Earth.[ep 24]
Mako Mankanshoku (満艦飾 マコ Mankanshoku Mako) is an energetic second-year student and Ryuko's classmate. She immediately befriends Ryuko upon the latter's arrival at the school.[ep 1] Mako lives with her parents and younger brother in the slums of Honnō City.[ep 2] She is described as an "uber air-head" whose "unbelievable actions never cease to shock and awe the people around her." Despite putting herself in dangerous situations, she has a good heart and cares for Ryuko, providing her with constant encouragement. Senketsu notes that Mako is vital for getting Ryuko to relax.[ep 3] In the episode where she runs the Fight Club, she receives a two-star Goku Uniform styled like that of a delinquent.[ep 7]
Satsuki Kiryuin (鬼龍院 皐月 Kiryūin Satsuki) is the ruthless student council president of Honnouji Academy, administers Goku Uniforms to students using various hierarchical schemes such as a no-late day event and battle royale-esque tournaments such as the Naturals Election.[ep 1] She wields a katana named Bakuzan (縛斬) which can sever Life Fibers, later dons Kiryuin Family's kamui Junketsu (純潔, lit. "purity"[ep 3]) after Ryuko arrived to the school.[ep 3] She serves as a major opponent to Ryuko for most of the series. After having learned the true nature of the Life Fibers from her father at an early age, revealing she set up Honnouji Academy to oppose her mother, Satsuki attempts to assassinate Ragyo during the Honnouji Academy Cultural & Sports Grand Festival to celebrate subjugating every school in Japan.[ep 17] During the resulting fight, Satsuki learns Ryuko is her presumed dead younger sister before being captured.[ep 18][ep 19] After being freed by Nudist Beach, Satsuki makes amends with Ryuko before they team up to face Ragyo in the series finale. In the OVA epilogue, Satsuki closed down Honnouji Academy as fulfilled its purpose while giving Rei closure.
Aikuro Mikisugi (美木杉 愛九郎 Mikisugi Aikurō) is Ryuko's enigmatic homeroom teacher. He secretly observes and aids Ryuko by leading her to Senketsu.[ep 3] Whilst generally having the appearance of a frail, shaggy teacher, he is actually a glamorous smooth-talker with a habit of slowly stripping his clothes and making moves on Ryuko whenever they are in private, much to Ryuko's embarrassment.[ep 3] Aikuro reveals to Ryuko the existence of Nudist Beach and his being one of its members (though she did not believe him due to the organization's ridiculous name). Whenever he strips, pink light radiates from his nipples and from his crotch, obscuring them.[ep 6] Mikisugi's character design is based on people such as TM Network's vocalist Takashi Utsunomiya and Kenji Sawada, people who appear smart and good-looking.
Honnouji Academy Elite Four
The Honnouji Academy Elite Four (本能字学園四天王 Honnōji Gakuen Shitennō) are the leaders in Satsuki's student council. They wear Three-Star Goku Uniforms.
Ira Gamagoori (蟇郡 苛 Gamagōri Ira) is a large, muscular man who is Satsuki's loyal enforcer who leads the disciplinary committee at Honnouji Academy. His three-star Goku Uniform is the Shackle Regalia (縛の装 Shibari no Sō), which takes the form of bondage gear. By enduring such masochistic attacks, he can activate its second transformation, Scourge Regalia (死縛の装 Shibaki no Sō), which covers his body in thorny whips.[ep 8] His upgraded uniform, Shackle Regalia MK.II, resembles a sarcophagus,[ep 15] and his ultimate uniform is the Shackle Regalia: Persona Unleashed.[ep 23] He is 20 years old, having waited two years after graduating middle school before enrolling at Honnouji to assist Satsuki with her plans. He drives a pink 1959 Cadillac Eldorado.[ep 8]
Uzu Sanageyama (猿投山 渦 Sanageyama Uzu) regulates the athletic clubs at Honnouji Academy, including the Boxing Club and the Tennis Club. He himself specializes in kendo and possesses the three-star Goku Uniform, Blade Regalia (剣の装 Tsurugi no Sō), which takes the form of a large armored bōgu. He initially possesses Tengantsū (天眼通, Clairvoyance), which allows to him to predict his opponent's moves with super fast eyesight. However, after suffering a defeat from Ryuko, he chooses to have his eyes sewn shut, heightening his other senses and giving him a more powerful Shingantsū (心眼通, eyes of the mind), which allows him to perceive things with no blind spots.[ep 6] During the final battle with Ragyo, he unseals his eyes, not wanting to hold back against her. He also receives upgraded uniforms such as Blade Regalia MK II,[ep 6][ep 11] Blade Regalia MK.III,[ep 15] and Blade Regalia: Secret Unsealed.[ep 23]
Nonon Jakuzure (蛇崩 乃音 Jakuzure Nonon) regulates the school's non-athletic clubs, such as Gardening Club and Biology Club.[ep 5] Among the members of the Elite Four, she has been with Satsuki since kindergarten and thus claims that she knows her best.[ep 5] She possesses the three-star Goku Uniform Symphony Regalia (奏の装 Kanade no Sō), which transforms into a giant sound system that produces powerful soundwaves and can transform into a flying airship.[ep 10] Later, she receives an upgraded version, Symphony Regalia MK.II, that miniaturizes the airship in a jetpack.[ep 15] Her ultimate uniform is Symphony Regalia: Finale.[ep 23]
Houka Inumuta (犬牟田 宝火 Inumuta Hōka) is in charge of Honnouji Academy's information and strategy committee, aiding the student council by analyzing the performance of Goku Uniforms and kamui in battle, and helping the Sewing Club with upgraded uniforms. His three-star Goku Uniform, Probe Regalia (探の装 Saguru no Sō), allows him to quickly calculate attack trajectories and use optical camouflage to hide from his opponents.[ep 10] Upgrades include Probe Regalia MK.II, that makes him appear as a polygonal model,[ep 15] and his ultimate uniform of Probe Regalia: Truth Unveiled.[ep 23]
The Mankanshoku family (満艦飾家 Mankanshoku-ka) is Mako's family that resides within Honnō City's slums. They take Ryuko in after the latter transfers to Honnouji Academy.
Barazo Mankanshoku (満艦飾 薔薇蔵 Mankanshoku Barazō) is Mako's father. He is a doctor that runs a back-alley clinic in Hannō City's slums. Barazo admits that he may have killed more patients than he has saved.[ep 2]
Mataro Mankanshoku (満艦飾 又郎 Mankanshoku Matarō) is Mako's younger brother. He is a delinquent who initially tries to rob Ryuko when he first encounters her.[ep 1]
Shiro Iori (伊織 糸郎 Iori Shirō) is the president of Honnouji Academy's Sewing Club, which works on improving and upgrading the Goku Uniforms. Shiro is also the nephew of Satsuki's butler Misuzo. [ep 6] His three-star Goku Uniform is called Tailor's Regalia (誂の装 Atsurae no Sō).[ep 22]
Tsumugu Kinagase (黄長瀬 紬 Kinagase Tsumugu) is a scientist at the Nudist Beach organization and an acquaintance of Aikuro who sports a red mohawk on top of short black hair. He bears a strong hatred of kamui, which stems from an experiment where his close sister, Kinue (絹江), died when the kamui she had volunteered to test ran her blood dry.[ep 17] His weapon is a sewing machine pistol that fires needles which severs the connections between the Life Fibers in kamui and Goku Uniforms and their wearers. The needles also act like acupuncture, in that it can immobilize opponents and invigorate them afterward. His catchphrase is "There are two things you need to know" (2つ、いいことを教えてやる Futatsu, ii koto o oshieteyaru, also "Let me tell you two useful pieces of information").[ep 5]
Nui Harime (針目 縫 Harime Nui) is the Grand Couturier (High Order Tailor) of the Kiryuin family, initially appearing as a petite twin tailed girl with a parasol and wearing an eyepatch. She has sociopathic tendencies, smiling and acting cheerful even when revealing to Ryuko that she killed her father and stole half of his Rending Scissors, at the cost of her eye.[ep 11] She later reveals that she is actually a human/Life Fiber hybrid that was incubated within the Primordial Life Fiber,[ep 20] with superhuman abilities such as tearing apart Life Fibers in Goku Uniforms and kamuis,[ep 12] manipulating people's minds with Mental Stitching, healing from severe cuts to her body, cloning herself, and changing her appearance.[ep 18] The only time in the series where she loses her cool is when Ryuko severs her arms at the Life Fiber level. She helps create Ragyo's kamui Shinra-Kotetsu and sacrifices herself at Ragyo's request to help the latter attain her ultimate power.[ep 24]
Isshin Matoi (纏 一身 Matoi Isshin) is Ryuko's deceased father, and the creator of Senketsu and the Scissor Blades. He was murdered by Nui, who stole the purple blade, whilst he left the red blade to Ryuko.[ep 12] He is also the founder of Nudist Beach, an organization created to oppose Revocs.[ep 16] He is actually Soichiro Kiryuin (鬼龍院 総一郎 Kiryūin Sōichirō), Satsuki's father and Ragyo's husband, who faked his death and took on the identity of Isshin Matoi to raise Ryuko.[ep 19]
Ragyo Kiryuin (鬼龍院 羅暁 Kiryūin Ragyō) is Satsuki's mother and the main antagonist of the series, being both Director of Honnouji Academy and the CEO of the Revocs Corporation which manufactures and supplies a preponderance of the world's clothing with her product laced with Life Fibers.[ep 11][ep 17] Ragyo has aspirations of ruling the Earth through the Primordial Life Fiber (原初生命戦維 Genshō Seimei Sen'i), the source of all Life Fibers on Earth, turning herself into a human/Life Fiber hybrid to be essentially immortal as long her head is still connected to her body by a single Life Fiber thread or her heart is not destroyed.[ep 18] One of her abilities is Mind Stitch where she imbued Life Fibers into peoples' heads to control like puppets.[ep 18] She eventually dons the wedding dress-like ultimate kamui, Shinra-Kotetsu, gaining the Absolute Domination (絶対服従 Zettai Fukujū) ability which allows her to manipulate anything made of Life Fibers except Senketsu. While Shinra-Kotetsu was originally powered by Rei Honoumaru, Ragyo had it absorb Harime and the Primordial Life Fiber commence her end game. After Ryuko reverses the Life Fiber takeover after Senketsu assimilated Shinra-Kotetsu, Ragyo choses to crush her heart rather than accept defeat on anyone's terms but her own, warning Ryuko that the other Life Fibers in the universe will eventually come to Earth and finish what she started.[ep 24]
Rei Hououmaru (鳳凰丸 礼 Hōōmaru Rei) is a Revocs corporate officer and Ragyo's personal secretary.[ep 11] Before she was adopted by Ragyo as a child, she had lived in a wartorn African village whose inhabitants were said to have a unique resistance to Life Fibers.[ep OVA] Following Ragyo's death, Rei attempted to exact revenge by using Life Fiber-based clones of Satsuki and her Elite Four to disrupt Honnouji Academy's graduation ceremony.[ep OVA]
Mitsuzo Soroi (揃 三蔵 Soroi Mitsuzō) is Satsuki's personal and trusted butler, having served her since her early childhood. He is also Shiro Iori's uncle. He often serves tea to Satsuki, but he also serves tea to the Elite Four, and later the Nudist Beach members when they go to rescue Satsuki.[ep 19] He wears a three-piece suit.
Kaneo Takarada (宝多 金男 Takarada Kaneo) is the student council president of Naniwa Kinman High School in the Osaka region, his family's wealth rivals that of the Kiruyins as he secretly funded Nudist Beach. Takarada uses his Takarada-printed money to have locals fight Kiryuin's forces for him when they arrives to both conquer his school and destroy the Nudist Branch base located in the city.[ep 15] After Ragyo and the Covers take over Japan, Takarada spends his remaining fortune to complete Nudist Beach's battleship Naked Sol.[ep 20]
