- List of Heavy Metal L-Gaim characters
Daba Myroad (Real name: Kamon Myroad) is the main character of Heavy Metal L-Gaim. Prince of the Yaman Clan, a monarchy of the planet Mizum that was completely wiped out in Poseidal's conquest, Daba seeks revenge on Poseidal and seeks to restore the Yaman Clan to its former glory. He pilots the powerful white Heavy Metal, the L-Gaim, and later on, the L-Gaim Mk-II. Daba grows to be a model leader over the course of the series and unites factions from multiple planets in an attempt to defeat Poseidal once and for all. Daba's one big weakness is that he gets too reckless when his half sister, Quwasan Olibee gets involved in the war. Voiced by Hirokazu Hiramatsu.
Daba's childhood friend who travels along with him from the very beginning. A rather goofy character, Kyao can never make up his mind and has a short lived dream of joining the Poseidal military. He's a good friend to Daba and pilots a number of Heavy Metals including the L-Gaim, D-Sserd and Lista. Voiced by Houchu Ohtsuka, who debuted with this role.
Amu Fanneria, a former actress who turned to a life of crime by joining a group of bandits meets Daba and Kyao in the wastelands of Koam and immediately falls in love with Daba. She immediately leaves the bandits and teams up with them. Amu doesn't have much talent, but has a lot of dedication to Daba and works as hard as she can over the course of the series at increasing her skills. She eventually captains the space shuttle Turner and takes over the L-Gaim once Daba obtains the Mk-II. Amu's nemesis is Gaw Ha Leccee as both are evying for Daba's love and they constantly get into fights over not just him, but many other reasons as well. Voiced by Chieko Honda.
Gaw Ha Leccee
A trainee for the Elite 13, Leccee initially meets Daba when he steals a ship on Koam and she is brought along. Leccee falls in love with Daba and defects from the military to join him. A skilled and experienced pilot, she is a powerful ally although she and Amu don't get along, often fighting over Daba. Leccee eventually gets upset with the rebels' progress and leaves them to become a member of Amandara Kamandara's private army. She eventually returns to the rebellion as the captain of the space shuttle Whale. Voiced by Maria Kawamura.
The last remaining fairy in the Pentagona World, Lillith is found by Daba in the city of Prearmo, on Koam. She immediately joins up with our heroes and while she isn't much help in battle, she's a good cook and loyal colleague. Lillith is virtually identical in appearance to the character of Cham Fau from Aura Battler Dunbine. It has never been fully addressed why Cham and Lillith are exactly alike aside from name and personality, although its speculated that many people on the staff that worked on L-Gaim also worked on Dunbine, and many had a soft spot for the spunky fairy. Regardless, the fact these two look exactly alike has been poked fun at in various forms of media. Voiced by Maria Kawamura, who also voiced Cham.
A rebel leader on Trydetol who joins up with Daba and the others. Semuj is a good ally to Daba and is able to secure a large amount of supplies from Amandara Kamandara and other factions. It is eventually revealed that he is a spy for Full Flat, but Daba decides to forgive him and keep him aboard. Voiced by Tesshō Genda.
Leader of the rebels on the planet Mizum. Stella and Daba ally with each other due to their desires to topple Poseidal, but differ greatly on their views. In particular, Daba gets frustrated with Stella's habit of recklessly throwing sums of money to his subordinates, not to mention his multiple attempts to execute his own allies when he suspects them of disloyalty. Stella is eventually killed at his main base of Little Saye. Voiced by Masato Tachizawa.
The legendary immortal emperor from the planet Gastogal that rules all of Pentagona. Poseidal is easily spotted by his white hair and mismatched eyes; one yellow, one blue. With the power of the bio-relation that harnesses biological energy, he has the ability to control the actions of others and lives forever. He is nearly invincible, particularly in his own Heavy Metal, the Original Auge. After defeating Kamon Walha V, cementing his status as ruler of Pentagona, Poseidal disappears from view, hiding as the wealthy trader Amandara Kamandara. As the battle between the rebellion and the military reaches its climax Poseidal returns to the forefront and battles Daba. He perishes when the bio-relation system that preserves his youth is deactivated. An indefining work, the Five Star Stories, the main character often uses the pseudonym Ladios Sopp. If you spell this backwards...you get "ppossoidal".
A wealthy trader who supplies both the military and the rebels with supplies. In actuality, Amandara Kamandara is the real Poseidal, hiding behind the scenes while a puppet is on the throne. A mysterious character throughout the show, Amandara's true intentions come to the surface at the end and he reveals his true persona, Oldna Poseidal. Voiced by Ryuichi Horibe.
Mian Ku Ha Attsher
One of Poseidal's former Temple Knights, Mian fell in love with him and eventually completely fell under his control due to the power of the bio-relation. While the bio-relation allowed her to live forever without aging, it also resulted in her becoming little more than a puppet and she was used to pose as Poseidal while he hid. Even she hid from public view for the most part, appearing rarely except as a hologram and wearing a bizarre costume complete with makeup and a wig. As the years passed however the bio-relation system's control slipped and Mian was able to think for herself, against Poseidal much in part due to encounters with Full Flat. Mian would eventually disable the bio-relation system in the heart of Sveto and, like him, age to her death.
Like Mian, Full Flat was one of Poseidal's former Temple Knights and was in love with him. Unlike Mian, Flat was unable to win Poseidal's love, but was given the independent asteroid base Theart Star due to all the help she provided him. Like Poseidal and Mian she possessed eternal youth, but as the decades passed she grew bored with her life and resentful towards Poseidal. Flat eventually seeks to take Poseidal down, first by allying with Giwaza Lowau, who was rebelling against Poseidal, and later heading down to Sveto herself to break Mian from Poseidal's grasp. It was during the second of these encounters where Flat's life came to an end when the L-Gaim Mk-II accidentally crushed her. Voiced by Mika Doi.
A pilot obsessed with joining the military who eventually gets his wish thanks to a recommendation from Amandara Kamandara. Gavlet becomes obsessed with Daba after a petty dispute over food and Lillith. He works his way through the military (eventually joining the Elite 13) and acquires powerful Heavy Metals but is never able to defeat Daba. Due to his success he is given command of the space ship Slender Skala. Gavlet eventually helps Daba and the rebels after becoming obsessed with Quwasan Olibee near the end of the show. Voiced by Sho Hayami.
Daba's younger half-sister, whom he lost track of. She eventually reappears as a puppet of Poseidal on the spy ship Epsilon. She is promoted over Giwaza, upsetting him enough for him to rebel against Poseidal. This also makes her a target of him, and he eventually manages to kidnap her. Daba and Gavlet (who falls in love with her) eventually rescue Olibee and she assists in them finding Poseidal(Mian) in the heart of Sveto. Although the war eventually ends, Olibee is brain damaged by the anguish caused by the bio-relation that Poseidal used to control her. Voiced by Yumi Kinoshita.
Member of Poseidal's Elite 13 (No. 3). Despite his number, Giwaza is actually the head of the group, and outside of Poseidal is the highest ranked member of the Poseidal military. Later in the series Poseidal decides to promote Olibee over him, which enrages him so much that he decides to rebel against Poseidal.
