Hitomi Kanzaki

Hitomi Kanzaki: This fifteen year old heroine of the story is from Japan. She is an athletic girl (member of her high school track team) and has a hobby of reading fortunes using tarot cards and a pendant (which was given to her by her grandmother). Hitomi is whisked away to a mysterious world when she quite literally runs into Van Fanel (Future King of Fanelia) who has mysteriously traveled to earth in order to slay a dragon. While on Gaea, Hitomi is faced with war, love, and loss. Her powers of fortune telling and dowsing (which she uses the pendant for) increase while in Gaea, but she gradually moves away from using such things and learns to depend on her heart. Voice by: Maaya Sakamoto

Van Fanel

Van Fanel: 15 year old King of Fanelia, a small rural kingdom on Gaea. He is often brash, impulsive, moody, and arrogant, but he has a good heart. His father died 12 years ago and his mother disappeared 10 years ago when his brother disappeared during a dragon hunt which was to be his last task before becoming king. It is during a similar dragon hunt that Van meets Hitomi and their adventures are set in motion. Van is the pilot of Fanelia's Protector God Escaflowne, an Ispano Guymelef bound to him by a blood contract executed near the beginning of the series using the Dragu-Energist he obtained in his dragon hunt. He is the main focus and main male character in the series. Voice by: Tomokazu Seki

Allen Schezar

Allen Schezar: One of the twelve "Heavenly Knights" of Asturia and an incredible swordsman. He is a dashing ladies man who often steals the hearts of all females in his general presence.

Under his smooth exterior lies a broken interior involving his family as well as a forbidden love in his past. Allen is the pilot of the Guymelef Scheherazade and is feared by most who happen to cross his path. He joins Hitomi and Van on their journeys after his fort is attacked by the Zaibach army who are in search of Escaflowne and its pilot. Voice by: Shinichiroh Miki
