Major Characters

Keiichi Morisato

Keiichi Morisato (森里 螢一 Morisato Keiichi) is a student of the Nekomi Institute of Technology and a member of the NIT Motor Club. One day Keiichi accidentally dials the Goddess Relief Office. After summoning Belldandy by accident, he ends up wishing for her to be by his side forever. Ever since, the two have been together. Since meeting Belldandy, Keiichi has had many extraordinary experiences in his young life, having met five Goddesses!

Keiichi was student of the Nekomi Institute of Technology and a member of the NIT Motor Club. Keiichi is portrayed as a typical college student with a notable lack of experience with women. One day Keiichi accidentally dialed the Goddess Relief Office. Before he could begin to comprehend what on earth was going on, the beautiful Goddess Belldandy warped into Keiichi's dorm to grant him a wish. Convinced his sempais (older classmates) are playing a prank on him as he has no luck with girls, Keiichi wishes for a girl like Belldandy to be by his side forever. Much to his surprise his wish is granted. Ever since, the two have been together. Belldandy's presence attracted a lot of attention not just in the mortal realm. Even though he may seem indecisive and very shy, when it comes to love he is very reliable.

He is a very skilled mechanic and an exceptional race driver. His abilities are somewhat glossed over in the OVA series, but are displayed to great effect in the movie/TV seasons, at points. After his supposed graduating from college, he started working at the repair shop Whirlwind owned by the founder of the NIT Motor Club: Chihiro Fujimi. He picked up the one class and actually graduated later.Also Keiichi has a sister, Megumi living in Nekomi to and also attending NIT (much to Kei's initial chargin LOL), while they are originally from the Kushiro prefecture in northeastern Hokkaidō (the northern island of Japan).

Simply put, Keiichi is a nice guy. He tries to be nice to everyone, and doesn't like to see anyone hurt, or hurt anyone himself. However, Keiichi isn't stupid because he thinks about doing (though sometimes quite gullible), and can (and will) speak out if the situation calls for it. He is also rather intelligent; for example, once he answered a test full of complex chemical and mechanical questions in two minutes flat while the other students were struggling with more conventional problems.

Keiichi's pure and innocent personality also puts him in the middle of an unusual love relationship. While he understands he loves Belldandy (and she loves him as well), he sometimes has a difficult time expressing his feelings. However, there is no mistaking the bond between them, as he and Belldandy had passed the ultimate test of true love in the Ah! My Goddess Movie. Finally, he also seems to exhibit unadulterated purity in his actions; he helps out others in need, he rarely complains about setbacks, and always attempts to be truthful about any situation.

In the OAV 'Fighting Wings', Keiichi's personality was illustrated when he was able to summon one of the Valkyrie Lind's own Angels, Cool Mint. According to Lind, he was able to host the angel with the "love of goddesses" which he received due to his innocent personality. Because of the love from the three goddesses for Keiichi, he was more than capable to handle controlling the angel.

Belldandy

Belldandy (ベルダンディー - Berudandī) is a goddess that ends up contractually bound to Keiichi Morisato after he accidentally dials the Goddess Relief Office. Ever since, Belldandy dwells with Keiichi at the Tariki Hongan Temple in the city of Nekomi, Chiba Prefecture near Tokyo. She can cancel the contract at anytime, but she states Keiichi is a special person in her heart, and that her purpose is to make him happy.

Belldandy is kind, patient, and warm, not only to Keiichi, but to everyone, without exception. She can easily sense other people's emotions, and tries her best to be empathetic to all those around her. However, even though Belldandy tries her best to be as kind as possible, it is revealed that at times, as a result of latent jealousy, she can become very insecure and sad, especially when she is confronted with an implication that involves Keiichi in one way or another. This can sometimes result in power leaks that affect everything within the vicinity.

Belldandy is licensed as a goddess first-class, unlimited, and as such is highly skilled. Her power is so great, in fact, that she is required to wear a special earring on her left ear which constantly seals the full brunt of her magical strength. Belldandy's angel is Holy Bell; her elemental attribute is wind. Like all angels, Holy Bell augments Belldandy's magical powers when called upon, and like all angels, she also reflects her mistress' current state.

Belldandy is depicted as being a Goddess working with the fictional "Goddess Relief Agency". Although the series never specifically mentions her age, there are hints that she is between 18 and 28 when the series begins: in the original manga her birthdate is shown as 196X/01/01, (the English translation offers no year, but simply says "January"), while in the anime the more specific 1985/01/01 is employed. This should not be seen as conclusive as Eileen Stevens, who provides the voice of Belldandy in the English language version of the TV series, states that while Belldandy is "young in appearance, late teens to early 20s, she's ageless, perhaps thousands of years old."

Fujishima provided the character with two sisters — Skuld and Urd — each with notably different personalities from her own. These two sisters represent the other two Norns from Norse mythology, with Urd (the eldest of the three) representing the past while Skuld (the youngest) represents the future.

When the series begins, Belldandy is working on the "Goddess Technical Helpline" and is responsible for granting wishes to those who call. As such, her role is similar to the character Peorth's work at the Earth Assistance Agency. In spite of working for Heaven, Belldandy, unlike her two sisters, does not appear to play a significant role in maintaining Yggdrasil, the "celestial supercomputer" (which is the series' counterpart to the World Tree of Norse mythology).

The "magical girl" character, of which Belldandy is an example, typically combines powerful abilities with very feminine characteristics. For Western audiences, a comparison can be drawn with the characters of Samantha Stephens from Bewitched and Jeannie from I Dream of Jeannie (Funny cause I like both of these shows LOL!). As such, Belldandy is depicted as being very sweet and exceptionally kind-hearted, with very "old-fashioned" sensibilities. Combined with domestic skills portrayed through the series and her loyalty to Keiichi, this makes her a classic example of the concept of Yamato Nadeshiko.

Belldandy is exceptionally kind-hearted, even for a goddess. She can easily sense other people's emotions and tries her best to be empathetic to all those around her, displaying a combination of "serene beauty and acceptance". She rarely holds a grudge and is always willing to forgive anyone who does injury to her. Her good will is so complete that she is willing to trust everyone completely, save her sister Urd, whom she realizes can often be duplicitous. Even though Belldandy tries her best to be as kind as possible, it is revealed that at times she can become very insecure and sad, especially when she is confronted with an implication that involves Keiichi in one way or another. This aspect of her character provides one of the biggest plot points in the Ah! My Goddess movie: Belldandy's possessiveness of Keiichi could make her an easy target for manipulation or even brainwashing, if the right buttons were pressed; her jealousy of Morgan Le Fay was what allowed Celestin, her teacher, to lure Belldandy into his plans.

As noted by Perper and Cornog, Belldandy, as a depiction of what they term "kirei", is comfortable "being loved and admired" and very much aware of her own beauty — yet this does not equate to vanity.

Belldandy is unflinchingly kind, patient, and warm, not only to Keiichi but to everyone, without exception. This, however, does not mean that she is to be taken lightly; Belldandy is licensed as a "goddess first-class, unlimited", and as such is depicted as being highly skilled. Her power is so great that she is required to wear a special earring on her left ear which constantly seals the full brunt of her magical strength. The only time at which she has ever revealed her true strength is during the "Lord of Terror" arc. At the end of this arc, Belldandy completely reconstructed their home from rubble, mentioning that doing so only took one ten-millionth of her power.

Belldandy's capacities and talents are diverse, whether magical or worldly. Not only can she change the appearance of her clothing and levitate (and, by extension, fly), but she can also teleport through mirrors, speak to and understand animals, "see" people's emotions as auras, heal minor wounds by speeding metabolism, and "speak" to machines. Furthermore, she is a superb cook, and her singing skills are held to be the best in the heavens. She is also incapable of becoming inebriated on alcoholic drinks, but instead becomes so with soda. (One sip is enough to send her in a drunken rampage — although given her personality, "rampage" takes an entirely different, but no less destructive, meaning).

Each of the fully-fledged goddesses in the series is teamed with an "angel". Belldandy's angel is called Holy Bell her elemental attribute is wind. Like the other angels in the series, Holy Bell augments Belldandy's magical powers when called upon, and like all angels, she also reflects her master's current state. For example, when Belldandy falls unconscious after being infected with a virus, Holy Bell emerges comatose and covered with crystals that represent the virus.

Belldandy is introduced to the series when Keiichi Morisato, portrayed as a typical college student with a notable lack of experience with women, accidentally dials the "Goddess Relief Agency" when attempting to order take-away noodles (the reason is simply explained as fate in the manga and anime adaptations). Belldandy appears before Keiichi and offers to grant him a wish. Convinced that the whole incident is a prank played on him by his seniors (Senpais), Keiichi half-jokingly wishes her to stay with him forever. ("I want a goddess like you to be by my side forever"). The wish, of course, is granted — thus providing one of the key premises of the series.

With Belldandy and Keiichi now portrayed as a couple, Fujishima introduces other factors: specifically the complications caused by family and friends. Forced to leave his dorm, as women are not permitted to stay on the premises, Keiichi and Belldandy end up living at the Tariki Hongan Temple in the city of Nekomi, Chiba Prefecture near Tokyo. Within both the manga and the anime, the temple was turned over to them by its former guardian, Koshian, a Buddhist monk who was overwhelmed by the purity of Belldandy's spirit and her unparalleled skills in polishing the temple altar, in cooking, and in Zazen meditation. Koshian departs the series by leaving for a pilgrimage to find spiritual perfection, (although he does briefly return later in the series), turning over the temple to Belldandy and Keiichi's care without realizing Belldandy's true nature as a Goddess. Later, Fujishima has Belldandy's two sisters (Urd and Skuld) join Belldandy and Keiichi in the temple.

Although Belldandy was sent to grant Keiichi a wish and nothing more, Belldandy expresses many times that she has enjoyed her time with Keiichi and that her purpose is to make him happy. The contract really is an excuse for her to stay since her rival Marller, a first class demon, has stated that "she can cancel a contract with a human anytime". Belldandy had then stated that she did not want to, because Keiichi was a special person in her heart. This was reinforced at the conclusion of time with the "System" down, Belldandy's contract with Keiichi is effectively suspended, yet she chooses to stay because, as Fujishima has her explain in the manga, "... I'm here now because I love you".

av_03.jpg
Urd

Urd (ウルド Urudo) is Belldandy's older half sister and is the second Goddess to appear to Keiichi. Urd ranks as Goddess second class, management category limited license, similar to her youngest sister Skuld. She is the Yggdrasil System Administrator and Manager. Though she is much more powerful than her sisters, she has not become a first class goddess. Urd shares a common father with her younger sisters, but has a different mother, the Demon Queen Hild. Because of this, Urd is a hybrid of Goddess and Demon, reflected in the half-white, half-black appearance of her Angel, World of Elegance. It was this inner conflict that allowed the Lord of Terror to eventually overcome Urd's will at one point. Deep in her heart, she truly wishes to be recognized as a Goddess and, in her earlier years, often looked up to Belldandy as a role model. This has led Urd to quietly deny her demonic heritage, much to the consternation of her mother, Hild.

Keiichi's friends and his sister Megumi are aware of Urd's existence and her relationship with Belldandy and residency at Keiichi's home; however, for the most part they are not aware of her "goddess" status.

For the longest time, she was unable to summon her angel since she was so scared when she first saw it and ordered it never to come out. This was caused by her self-doubt at being a hybrid Goddess/Demon since she equated having pure white wings as the sign of being a true Goddess. She has since gotten over whatever self-doubt that was holding her back and can now once again call her angel at will, much to Skuld's chagrin (she had originally thought that Urd had no angel and wanted to top her eldest sister by being first).

Unlike her younger sister Belldandy, Urd is very impulsive and headstrong. Belldandy describes Urd as being very passionate about everything she does. Urd is a great believer in the idea that the 'End justifies the Means', although, as Belldandy puts it: "...she gets so wrapped up in the means that she forgets what the end was." She once stole Sleipnir to get a cure for a sick Belldandy, but spent so much time in the effort to master riding Sleipnir that it took eight days for her to get to the place where the cure was. Another god had fetched the cure six days earlier. Despite such, she usually means well and will do anything to protect her loved ones. Because of her being the oldest, she believes it's also her duty to look after Belldandy and Skuld

Urd's impulsivness often makes her act first without fully considering the consequences. She is also a constant meddler, seemingly unable to leave well enough alone. She is also quite short tempered for a goddess, and is rather easy to irritate and anger. Urd is also notable for her tendency to lie, something a goddess supposedly can't do. Although she's not a pathological liar, she's more than willing to distort the truth if needed to accomplish an objective. She is also very open (and rather proud) of her sexuality, evidenced by her prevocative dress, jibs at the younger Skuld and her slightly comical distress when turned into a child as a result of energy drainage. Her first appearance to Keiichi was through a semi-pornographic video.

Urd has an interesting love-hate relationship with her youngest sister, Skuld. Both seem to antagonize one another at times, with Urd usually teasing Skuld about her age, bust size, and apparent lack of talent when it comes to magic. However both do care for each other and will come to the others aid when necessary.

For a goddess, Urd seems to have an amazing tendency to have her plans backfire, usually a result of her impulsive tendedcy to use raw power to solve a situation. Given her power levels this tends to cause explosions. Quite often, something will happen to louse up whatever scheme she's currently cooked up. Examples including: drinking one of her own love potions, trying to help Belldandy bake a cake and blowing up the kitchen, trying to help Keiichi build a motorbike and blowing up the garage, trying to dispel a number of computer "bugs" and blowing up the house, and so on.

Urd fancies herself a Goddess of Love, so she comes to Earth to spur Keiichi onward with love potions and well-meaning, but deceitful advice, but as punishment for deserting her post and for using her powers on Earth without authorization, The Almighty banishes her from Heaven until further notice. After being allowed to go back, she decides to stay on Earth instead, and in the course of her time had herself a little romance on Earth. Due to problems at Yggdrasil after the Lord of Terror incident, Belldandy shrinks while Urd becomes a child. After almost getting him in trouble when she gets caught drinking sake, Urd spends her time as a child with a new friend, Shohei Yoshida. Meanwhile, Keiichi and Belldandy work to artificially produce moon rocks in order to provide an alternative energy source for the goddesses while Yggdrasil is repaired. Urd decides to help Shohei gain his self confidence, and towards that end takes him to the top of a high-rise construction site - using it as a test for him to overcome his fear. With the moon rocks completed, and Urd once more her normal age, she says goodbye to Shohei (presenting herself as the "big sister" to Shohei, which he seees through OBVIOUSLY), agreeing to see him again once he has grown up.

Skuld

Skuld (スクルド Sukurudo) is the younger sister of Belldandy (who she refers to as Onee-sama, lit. "Big sis" in the English anime) and is the third Goddess to appear to Keiichi Morisato. Skuld has a Goddess second class, type one, limited license, a category similar to her eldest sister Urd. Her true age is unknown, but her appearance is that of a girl in her early teens.

Skuld is one of Yggdrasil's system debuggers. She compensates for her lack of magic power with her innate talent for invention which is known throughout Heaven. Skuld recharges her energy by consuming ice cream and travels via warm or hot water. (Ironically, she can't swim.) She bears the emblem of the future.

Skuld is an engineering genius, capable of building just about anything out of the most mundane parts under most limited resources. Sample gadgets have included: explosives, a neutrino detector, glasses that allow user to see invisible "computer bugs," and even a device for removing a miniature black hole from Keiichi's body. Banpei is "living" proof of her talent. She can compute equations and redesign even the most complex engineering blueprints in no time. All too frequently, though, she forgets to include instructions with her devices, which can create havoc if someone unsuspecting of their true power (such as Keiichi) interferes with them. Other times, she will concentrate too much on one aspect of a device (usually power) and forgets to compensate by boosting other aspects of the same device, making many of her inventions rather unstable. In the TV series, she has been gradually developing the ability to do magic.

She travels to Earth after Belldandy's proximity to Keiichi started creating an increasing number of bugs in Heaven's supercomputer Yggdrasil. At least that was her official excuse, as she believed Belldandy was living with Keiichi against her will. She tried to convince Belldandy to return to Heaven to resolve the bug problem and at the same time with the ulterior motive of alleviating her loneliness. After realizing that Belldandy's relationship with Keiichi was not going to end any time soon, Skuld decides to stay on Earth and act as Belldandy's unofficial chaperone.

Skuld regularly clashes with her sister Urd, particularly when it comes to Belldandy's relationship with Keiichi. However, the two sisters do love each other and will work together to solve a problem or stave off a mutual threat.

In the manga, Skuld's engineering skills made her a minor celebrity around the Nekomi Tech campus, especially when she engaged in "Robot Wars" style competition with Keiichi's sister Megumi. Keiichi's friends are aware of Skuld's existence and of her living with Keiichi and Belldandy; however, they do not know of her "goddess" status.

Unlike Belldandy and Urd, Skuld did not possess an angel when she was first introduced. Later on in the manga she found an angel egg in Urd's room and accidentally swallowed it(whilst in the process of performing the classic little kid rebellion of touching something that was specifically marked as "hands off!", namely the egg.), leading to the birth of Noble Scarlet. Because of Skuld's lack of magic power, Noble Scarlet lacked the full unequivocal obedience an angel must have for her goddess. After interfering with Skuld's budding relationship with Sentaro, Noble Scarlet returned back to her egg form as per Skuld's instruction("If you do that again, you'll have to go back to your egg."). Urd promised that they'd meet again when Skuld gained enough power. In the meanwhile, Skuld wore the angel egg mounted on a necklace. Some time later, Skuld threw together a device with the intent of boosting her powers to the point that she could control and regain Noble Scarlet. When said gadget went out of control, Urd used her angel to save Skuld, thus unlocking World Of Elegance, and also revealing the back story as to why Urd couldn't initially call her and why she had Scarlet's egg in the first place - Urd wanted to "try again" since she'd believed she basically sealed her angel away forever at it's own birth. Later on the promise is fulfilled when Skuld calls forth Noble Scarlet in the fight against the Angel Eater. At this time, Skuld had gained the necessary power to control the angel and the only thing lacking was the desire to truly be with her.

Skuld generally carries her debugging mallet, used against Yggdrasil bugs (eight-legged rabbit-looking entities), as a precaution wherever she goes. Yggdrasil bugs can cause adverse effects to the surrounding area such as making it snow on a single house and causing the holy steed Sleipnir to temporarily show up in the temple, and the only way to counter such effects is by debugging. One way to debug is through squishing the bugs with a mallet. Other ways include various gadgets Skuld has built, such as the Mr. Bug Zapper.

Perper and Cornog described Skuld as being ""somewhat bratty" - a view that is in keeping with her behavior throughout the series. Skuld started as very protective of Belldandy and interpreted anyone having any kind of intimate relationship with her an attempt to steal Belldandy from her. She and Banpei repeatedly placed restrictions to limit Belldandy's and Keiichi's relationship. For a brief while it was also implied that Skuld had a crush on Keiichi; the second special episode of the first TV series (where she's grown up for a day) explored this angle by placing Skuld and Keiichi in situations where they appear as a couple. Over time ground rules have been worked out and there haven't been any recent episodes of relationship restrictions.

Skuld also doesn't appear to get along with her oldest sister, Urd perhaps because Urd is somewhat the opposite of Belldandy. However, it is slowly revealed that Skuld and Urd share a complex love-hate relationship, and so even when they are gambling violently over rights to the television, it is obvious that they are "the very best of friends."

Being the inventor that she is, Skuld loves anything technical, but hates inefficiencies, flawed creations, and useless mechanics (such as toys). This is Urd's favorite way of punishing Skuld whenever she touches or breaks any of Urd's potions and such, by making her create gadgets that do absolutely nothing useful. She has a tendency to get carried away fixing or improving anything she sees inefficient. Even when her original intention is to destroy it, she always ends up with something much better, (and usually more destructive). Most of her inventions, more often than not, have extra functions that make situations more complicated, including a self-destruct device in almost everything (including her Robot Wars robot...).

Peorth

Peorth (ペイオース Peiōsu) is the fourth goddess of the series (5th in the anime due to Lind's earlier appearance in 'Lord of Terror' arc), and she enters the story during the Second TV season 'Flights of Fancy', when Keiichi accidentally calls her up one day, much like he did Belldandy. She is part of the Earth Help Center, and a Goddess First-class, Second Category, Unlimited. For a time, Peorth harboured a deep resentment towards Belldandy because Belldandy had reported the removal of a bug in Yggdrasil as a team effort. Believing Belldandy was pitying her, she held a grudge. During her stay she continually tried to seduce Keiichi in order to seem more of use to him than Belldandy. However, after the misunderstanding is cleared up, Peorth remarks that she does not hate Belldandy anymore, and in recent appearances the two seem to be on friendly terms once again. Still, Peorth's incessant flirting with Keiichi puts some strains upon this new relationship.

A part of the Earth Help Center, Peorth seems to be a rival of Belldandy, both for Keiichi and for other goddess qualifications. Peorth is also a Goddess First-class, Second Category, Unlimited, much like Belldandy, although her role seems to be different. In the movie, she is a system administrator for Yggdrasil, the Heavenly computer maintaining reality, Yggdrasil In the Ah My Goddess! world, Yggdrasil is the heavenly computer system that maintains reality, with the gods and goddesses acting as its programmers, system administrators, and debuggers. ...


For a time she harboured a deep resentment towards Belldandy because of an incident that occurred while both were debugging Yggdrasil. A bug invaded Peorth's body, but Belldandy was able to eliminate it. However, Belldandy reported the removal of the bug as a team-effort instead of an individual effort. This was a huge blow to Peorth's pride as she believed that Belldandy was pitying her; in truth, Belldandy would not have been able to isolate the bug had it not invaded Peorth's body. However after the misunderstanding is cleared up Peorth remarks that she doesn't hate Belldandy anymore, and in recent appearances the two seem to be on friendly terms once again.


Peorth also seems to annoy Urd and Skuld to no end, but she has a soft spot for Keiichi and may even harbor affections for him. Her magic is based on the element of Earth, and indeed her angel is Gorgeous Rose. Her transportation link is a camera lens.

Her name is derived from the original Old Norse Rune Peorth or Peorš, which has (fairly vaguely defined) associations with 'Secret', 'Mystery' and / or 'Dice Cup' or 'Apple Tree'. The rune itself can be sometimes visibe on the mark on her forehead when she casts a spell.

Peorth is always cool and confident, even when faced with difficult situations. Her only emotional confrontation seems to be during her first appearance in chapter 66, where her determined and one-minded nature seems to be occupied by trying to fullfill "Keichi's heart's desire". This drive, though, is still controlled by a calm forefront, as she exhibits the intelligent process of constructing an elaborate plan. She also remains confident in her skills, though, and eagerly engages in situations that would be considered immature for her age, going so far as to present herself as arrogant. Finally, Peorth is very business-like and serious when it concerns matters of great importance. She knows how to present herself in an upright, opinionated manner, and never allows external conflicts to get in the way.

Lind

Lind (リンド Rindo) is the fifth Goddess to appear in the series. Lind is a Valkyrie, a member of the battle division of Heaven. In an unlikely turn of events, Lind obtained twin angels, though at first she could only call upon one of them, Spear Mint, causing her to be teased all throughout Heaven and Hell. Frustrated by her 'weakness' and resulting inability to call forth her second Angel, Lind threw herself into Valkyrie training with incredible ferocity. This intense training gained Lind the reputation as a Goddess of extreme violence. She eventually calls out her second angel, Cool Mint, by realizing that she lacked a belief in herself and a trust towards others during her fight with the Angel Eater planted inside of her by Hild in an attempt to replace her angels with devils.

Lind's appearance in the television series is during the Lord of Terror story arc at the end of the 1st TV season. She arrives on Earth after the Lord of Terror had infected Keiichi and was preparing to open the gate to the demon realm, allowing them to invade Earth. Lind was going to kill Keiichi, eliminating the Lord of Terror in the process. However, Belldandy fought against Lind and protected Keiichi. The goddesses are able to defeat the Lord of Terror by transferring him over to a floppy disk and using a magnet to wipe the disk clean. The credits of the final episode shows Lind in heaven holding the disk in front of Peorth.


Lind's later visit to the mortal realm (In the 'Fighting Wings' OAV) of Keiichi Morisato and his friends is her pursuit of the Angel Eater, a supernatural beast that feeds upon the angels that goddesses support. After sealing the area against any intrusion, she set about finding where the Angel Eater was hiding. However, she didn't realise that the Angel Eater was a parasite in her own body and that she'd been used by the Demon Queen Hild as part of a nefarious scheme to replace the angels inside the goddesses with devils.
Ultimately, Hild's plans were foiled by Lind and the other goddesses. In the process Lind's entire viewpoint on herself was challenged.


When Lind had first acquired an angel, she discovered to her dismay that it only had one wing. Due to this 'deformity' she was teased by her fellow goddesses and was known throughout heaven - and it appears from Hild's comments, hell also - as 'One Winged Lind.' However, she later found out that she had not just acquired one angel, but two. The egg that she'd ingested had hatched and produced twins - but she could only call upon one of them, Spear Mint.


Frustrated by her 'weakness' and resulting inability to call forth her second angel, Lind threw herself into Valkyrie training with incredible ferocity. Not once did she give up, refusing to give way even when it was obvious that things were against her. She was determined to become stronger, which she thought would enable her to call out her second angel. This intense training gained Lind the reputation as a goddess of extreme violence.


However, during the fight with the Angel Eater, Lind discovered that it was not strength that she lacked, but trust. She didn't believe enough in herself, nor did she believe in her comrades. It was this realisation that allowed her to call out her second angel, Cool Mint.

To date, Lind is the only goddess who supports twin angels. This marks her as somewhat unique in heaven as a goddess of incredible inner strength. However, her vigorous training had buried some of her true personality beneath an almost impenetrable network of shields and walls. After the Angel Eater incident, she smiled for the first time in a long while, resulting in a small sliver of her true personality to shine through the walls of her long-running, seemingly indifferent business-like demeanour.

Shohei Yoshida was a young boy who became close to Urd, who was suffering from an age-regression effect caused by a crash in Heaven's computer system, when she goes out one evening and meets a young boy named Shohei Yoshida. He is immediately smitten with her, and before she knows it, she finds that she rather enjoys being around him as well. Of course, their time is brief as Keiichi & Belldandy are busy working to find a way to return her to her normal age. In the end, Urd, once cured of her not altogether unpleasant malady, meets Shohei after he followed her home. She greets him at the temple gate and tells him that her "little sister" was gone" but not believing her story, he says that's not why he came and gives her back a sake bottle she had left behind, when she was out with him earlier and says thank you to her for telling him to believe in himself, and her for believing in him too (implied), she then smiles and tells him to grow up fast, so they can meet again. As she kisses him on the forehead (much to Shohei's red faced satisfaction, NOTE: This was not part of the manga's original story, but was added for TV).

Banpei

Banpei-kun RX (ばんぺいくんRX Banpei-kun āru ekkusu) (changed to Banpei RX in the English anime) is a humanoid robot that was designed and built by Skuld. Banpei-kun's primary function is to guard the temple, originally from Marller, however, this has expanded to include any threat the demons send, and even to 'protecting' Belldandy from Keiichi Morisato. Banpei has gradually gained many new abilities as Skuld continues to create new add-ons or new functionality for him. Originally, he required a direct power connection via an external cable but was later given a battery. This allows him to travel anywhere for extended periods of time; however, when the battery runs low Banpei has to shut down and enter memory preservation mode.

Banpei's program continues to evolve on its own: Banpei gained sentience, an appreciation for life. His emotional circuit will work at varying degrees, from being completely shut off, to being almost alive; in recent times it has gained stability, ensuring that he remains 'alive' at all times. Unable to express emotion, Banpei will at times use a permanent marker to draw what he is feeling on his face: a tear for sadness, a furrowed brow and clenched teeth for anger.

Troubador

Troubador (トルバドール Torubadōru) is a Plum Tree Spirit who also happens to be Urd's ex-boyfriend. He's named after the Troubadors, courteous poets from souther France during the late 11th to 14th centuries, and refers for his penchant for singing. He loves to sing, although he's not really that good at it (only Belldandy seems to appreciate his singing) and he can be quite jealous and stubborn.


Troubador broke up with Urd so that he could pursue his dream, which was to capture and tame the legendary golden nightingale, for which Urd seemingly never forgave him. He eventually does return to earth in pursuit of the legendary bird where he runs to Urd once again and at the same time mistakes Keiichi for Urd's new boyfriend which greatly upsets him.


In the end, it turns out that all he needed was the "Tear of Truth" from a Goddess to unlock the scroll with the song that would summon the nightingale. He obtains the tear from Urd when he showed her the ring that she gave him all those years ago. He then summons the nightingale with the song (after being blasted by Urd), however the bird leaves after singing terribly and Troubador has to leave Urd once again. This time however, they part on more amicable terms with Urd telling Troubador that while she was hurt by him choosing his dream over her she didn't want him to be a coward and give up his dream.

Hild

Hild (ヒルド Hirudo) is the ultimate Demon who is the opposite to The Almighty, known as the Ruler of Demonkind. She is incredibly powerful, with her power dwarfing even the combined strength of the three goddesses. Despite her immense power, she respects the doublet system, and thus limits her power, to prevent killing any of the Goddesses. She is Urd's mother, whom she loves deeply, though Urd doesn't return the feeling (it is revealed that doing so would mean that Urd would acknowledge and thus be taken over by her demonic side). Hild dislikes Belldandy, because Belldandy's attitude and love for humanity reminds her of the Almighty One. Because of this, she has often tried to corrupt or hurt Belldandy several times throughout the series. She also seems to have some feelings for Keiichi Morisato.

She appears a few times before leaving an avatar child version of herself, who would go on to become a regular antagonist for the goddesses, as well as a direct supervisor for Marller. While this avatar possesses only one thousandth of the true Hild's power, it is still enough to make the avatar a powerful enemy for anyone. In the manga, a small team of demons sealed her main body and attacked her avatar in the human world.

Marller/Mara

Marller or Mara in the English anime (マーラー Mārā) was once the childhood friend of the goddesses who are the main characters, though now she's a demon. Urd and Mara used to be very good friends, but got separated when Urd chose to be a goddess. Her actual duty is to increase the market share of the demons on earth, though she decides that removing the goddesses will make it one hundred percent.

Like Urd, because of her demonic heritage Marller has a music-based weakness: when hearing hard rock, she is compelled to dance until exhausted. Likewise, the close proximity or touch of good luck charms has adverse effects on her; the accidental touch of a hamaya (demon-slaying arrow) once caused complete, if temporary, amnesia.

Sayoko Mishima

Sayoko Mishima (三嶋 沙夜子 Mishima Sayoko) is a popular girl at Nekomi Tech, to the point where she considers herself the "queen" of the school. She's also quite rich, coming from a wealthy family. She has her own apartment, an expensive car, and gets to throw lavish parties with very important people. When Belldandy appears, all the guys' attention turn to her rather than Sayoko. Mishima begins to get jealous of Belldandy and wants to make her upset by seducing Keiichi, even though she does not have any interest in him. She even goes to the lengths of teaming up with Toshiyuki Aoshima and Marller to bring her down. Gradually, as the series progresses, she becomes less and less antagonistic, even offering Keiichi relationship advice and foiling Marller's schemes, It seems as though she develops feelings for Keiichi at the beginning season 2 when she didn't feel as lonely when he was with her.

Toshiyuki Aoshima

Toshiyuki Aoshima (青嶋 紀元 Aoshima Toshiyuki) is a playboy around the Nekomi Institute of Technology campus and Sayoko's cousin. He is enamoured by Belldandy and tries often to steal her away from Keiichi, going as far as to set up a rival motor club. However, in just about all of his attempts, he fails miserably. In the TV series, he and his cousin Sayoko can be identified by the supercars that they drive, in Aoshima's case, an Enzo Ferrari.
