Template:Nihongo
Template:Animevoices
The series' protagonist. A young arms dealer and the daughter of Floyd Hekmatyar, a global shipping magnate. Officially she leads the HCLI's European and African Logistics Division. She is physically attractive, with long silver-white hair, pale alabaster skin, striking blue eyes and her trademark smile, which is present even under dire circumstances. She is extremely charismatic and bold, which earned her great success in her business as well as the fierce loyalty of her subordinates. While generally behaving in a bubbly and slightly childish manner, Koko is actually rather ruthless and has been called a 'monster' by various characters. She claims that she sells weapons for world peace, but there seem to be an ulterior motive that she keeps as a secret to everyone except Minami Amada and Chinatsu, who was killed shortly after knowing Koko's secret plan. She considers Jonah a little brother and is very affectionate towards him.

Template:Animevoices
A child soldier of Arabic origin. After being orphaned, he joined the mountain infantry and was then assigned to a military base along with four other orphans. However, after Malka, his friend, was killed when made to probe for landmines, he annihilated the base single-handedly in order to avenge her and protect the other children. He was disarmed by Chiquita and met Kasper Hekmatyar for the first time. He learnt that the base was actually intended to be destroyed anyway because it was in the way of the construction of a road that would benefit Kasper's arms trading business in Asia, and that in fact Malka had died for nothing but a road. As the punishment of killing his men as well as a test to examine Jonah's character, Kasper locked him up in a container for days with nothing but water. After Jonah was released, Kasper revealed himself to be the one who sold the weapons that destroyed Jonah's village, making him indirectly responsible for the death of Jonah's parents. Kasper made him a deal and promised Jonah that he would ensure the three orphans live a peaceful life in Japan. In return, Jonah would be employed as a bodyguard to protect Koko, his sister. Since the encounter with Kasper, Jonah has harboured a strong hatred for him and arms dealers in general. After joining Koko's crew, his sentiment towards weapons has not changed. However, he finds himself growing a soft spot for Koko, even though Koko always makes him feel that he is being played the fool.
