- Seiji "Rookie" Nanatsuki (七月清司, Nanatsuki Seiji)
- Voiced by: Hiro Shimono (Japanese); Matt Shipman (English)
- Nine years ago, he survived a terrorist attack on an airport because a detective delayed the terrorists and let him escape. He wished to be like him and so became a detective. He seems to have some type of magical ability that he acquired at the airport bombing that he is not fully aware of yet.
- Shiori "Charisma" Ichinose (一ノ瀬栞, Ichinose Shiori)
- Voiced by: Kenjiro Tsuda (Japanese); Brandon Potter (English)
- A withdrawn human member of the team, he is a master at making suspects talk by using his innate ability to see all the possibilities and conclude which is the most probable. His marksman skills are bizarre. If he is taking his time and aims at his target, he misses every time, but if he closes his eyes or just fires randomly, he can make impossible shots.
- Kujaku "Analyzer" Nijo (二条クジャク, Nijō Kujaku)
- Voiced by: Tatsuhisa Suzuki (Japanese); David Matranga (English)
- A highly-intelligent elf with a large network of connections. He lost his older brother in the same terrorist attack that Seiji Nanatsuki was injured in. That detective was the one that saved Seiji.
- Akane "Samurai" Shikisai (四季彩紅音, Shikisai Akane)
- Voiced by: Yūko Kaida (Japanese); Monica Rial (English)
- A vampire and master swordswoman. She shares an apartment with a male and their dog.
- Bellemer "Ninja" Cinq (ベルメール・サンク)
- Voiced by: Ari Ozawa (Japanese); Sarah Wiedenheft (English)
- She is a homonculus girl with blonde hair who used drones to deliver explosives and blow up Rainbow Bridge to stop an armored car.
- Rokusuke "Sniper" Endo (藤六輔, Endo Rokusuke)
- Voiced by: Kenji Nomura (Japanese); Chris Rager (English)
- Sometimes called Gramps, he is a dwarf who wears an eyepatch over his left eye but remains a master sniper. His ex-wife is an elf. He lives with his adult daughter.
- Sakon Zeroemon "Boss" Kiryuin (桐生院左近零衛門, Kiryuin Sakon Zeroemon)
- Voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa (Japanese); Eric Vale (English)
- In charge of Special Unit 7 he directs and watches over the team from base, but is shown to be quite quirky, especially the way he wears bow ties. He has a familiar that is a small white dragon which he shares a psychic connection with. He is able to communicate with his team, sees what it sees, and feels what it feels. He is a magic user that can cast spells through this familiar.
- Warlock (ウォーロック)
