This is a list of characters from the light novel series Toaru Majutsu no Index as well as its manga adaptation, spin-off manga (Toaru Kagaku no Railgun), and both series' anime adaptations. The series primarily takes place in Academy City, a city filled with students who strive to become powerful espers, which is brought into conflict by the appearance of magicians.

- Tōma Kamijō (上条 当麻 Kamijō Tōma ) is the series' main protagonist. His parents are Tōya and Shiina Kamijō. He tends to stay away from trouble but possesses a strong sense of justice. He is a smart student and knowledgeable about certain subjects yet is a failure in his esper studies. While he is an idealist for the hopes of other people, ironically he is cynical about himself possibly because of his powers.
- His right hand contains a power he calls Imagine Breaker (幻想殺し Gensō-Goroshi , "Illusion/Fantasy Killer"), a power which negates all magic, psychic, or divine powers but also his own good luck ("divine providence" as defined by Index). Because this ability can not be detected through testing, he has been given the lowest psychic rank, Level 0. Due to the nature of his power, the founder of Academy City considers him neither a Psychic nor a Magician but rather a normal person with a unique ability.
- Throughout the series, he tries to live his life normally while still facing against the many adversaries from the worlds of science and magic and the conflicts that follow. Despite his very bad luck, he has managed to get the interests and hearts of many ladies who are infatuated with him, which Aisa jokes about, that his life is like a dating sim where he is bound to unlock more paths to more girls.
- In order to save Index from the need of a memory reset, he had activated her self-protection system and destroyed the spell responsible for her mind strain. However, he ends up having his memories destroyed when he comes into contact with the Feather of Light (光の羽 Hikari no Hane ). Though he no longer remembers the past, he claims his heart has not completely forgotten the people he cares about. His memories loss is kept a secret known only to himself and a few others, including his doctor (who unknown to Tōma, is Heaven Canceler, Aleister's personal physician), his parents (after telling them the truth during the Academy City Sports Festival), Terra of the Left (who manages to figure it out by himself), Mikoto (who learns about it from accidentally overhearing a conversation between Tōma and Terra, confronts Tōma about it), Fiamma of the Right (who, after learning about it, decides to toy with Tōma by sending this information to Index using the mental link he established with her using Johann's Pen mode) and finally, Index.
- One of the series' main mysteries is the origin of Imagine Breaker, since it is neither an esper ability or a magical ability. Later in the series, it is hinted to be of Divine origin according to two members of God's Right Seat. Fiamma believes Imagine Breaker is the Holy Stone, which holds the power of miracles and Terra hints Imagine Breaker's full powers have yet to be unlock; if it does, its powers would extend to Tōma's whole body and beyond and the second about the meaning behind his surname 'Kamijō' as it means "The One Superior To God (神上)" for God's Right Seat and "The One Who Cleanses God (神浄)" for Kaori Kanzaki and Aleister.
- Due to the troubles he faces with delinquents, Tōma is a skilled street fighter and is physically fit and manages to out run his opponents. As he faces espers and magicians, he combined his fighting skills including using his powers with his quick thinking to out maneuver his opponents. Mikoto considers him to be extremely strong, having never beaten him despite having repeatedly challenged him. However, his ability can only be effective when psychics use their power on him directly, which is why he had a tough time against Accelerator, who uses his ability on projectiles. He later develops a sixth sense for incoming magic and esper attacks based on their AIM fields and Telesma flow and uses his powers to minimize the damage taken.

- Index (インデックス Indekkusu ), also known by her full name Index Librorum Prohibitorum ("List of Prohibited Books"), is one of the main heroines and the titular character of the series. She is a young nun from Necessarius (必要悪の教会 Hitsuyōaku no Kyōkai , "Church of Necessary Evil"), a branch of the Church of England. Index is small in stature and has a petite build. About 12 or 13 years old, she has thigh-length, silvery-blue hair with very white skin and large green eyes. She also wears a white robe with golden embroidery sewed onto every edge of it, the Walking Church, that prevents any injury on her, but it is later destroyed by Tōma when he touched it with his right hand, which is why her uniform is stitched with golden pins. Her mind has been implanted with the 103,000 magical texts of the Index-Librorum-Prohibitorum as she possesses Photographic memory, which makes magicians wonder if she really is human because just one grimoire is poisonous to the mind, and one is more than enough to kill a person without the proper preparative.
- Her sorcery name is Dedicatus545, "The devoted lamb protects the knowledge of the strong" (献身的な子羊は強者の知識を守る Kenshinteki na Kohitsuji wa Kyōsha no Chishiki o Mamoru ). The Church says that the grimoires take up 85% of her mind, so she only has 15% of memory space left to use in daily activities, which allows her to live normally for less than a year. However, all of this is revealed to be a lie after Tōma begins to question how the Church even got to numbers like 15% and 85% and finds out from his teacher Komoe that the human mind can store an unlimited amount of memories. This was purposely done as the Church planned to make the grimoires harder to access by telling their underlings to perform "maintenance" on her mind in exactly one-year intervals once her memory has come to its "limit"; that way, she will not remember her close friends and accidentally and/or purposely reveal the contents of the grimoires.
- When she is being invaded by outsiders or injured, her self-protection system personality, John's Pen (自動書記 (ヨハネのペン) Jidō Shoki , "Automatic Writing"), will be activated to allow her to use magic to cast high-class magic attacks such as St. George's Sanctuary (聖ジョージの聖域 (セントじょーじのせいいき) Sei Jōji no Seīki , "Sanctuary of St. George") and Dragon's Breath (竜王の殺息 (ドラゴンブレス) Ryūō no Satsu Iki , "Killing Breath of the Dragon King"). Her self-protection system will use the Feather of Light (光の羽 Hikari no Hane ) to force a reset on Index's own memory should a manual reset fail to be performed. Although she does not know that she has magical powers, she can easily identify the types of magic by seeing it or somebody describing it to her and know how to counter them. Her vast knowledge of the Index-Librorum-Prohibitorum within her mind makes her to be one of the most powerful characters so far and becomes very helpful to her friends in various situations using skills like Spell Intercept (強制詠唱 (スペルインターセプト) Kyōsei Eishō , "Force Chant"), and Sheol Fear ((魔滅の声 (シェオールフィア) Mametsu no Koe , "Voice of Destruction of Evil").
- She is often elated by a variety of things and is slightly ignorant and curious of modern technology. She usually is gentle and polite with people and has a kind nature, but she is also easily irritated especially by Tōma who usually ends making her mad in some way as consequence of his bad luck which ends with her biting him. She also has a large appetite and uses any excuse to get food from anyone and likes watching an anime series called Magical Powered Kanamin. She has strong feelings towards Tōma and even confessed her love after hearing Tōma lost his memories because of her, however he avoided answering by changing the theme of the talk since he has no idea about what kind of feelings he used to have with Index.
- When she returns to England, she is sought out by Fiamma who wants her knowledge and reactivates John's Pen mode through her remote control spiritual item. Later during her stay at Necessarius Headquarters at St. George Cathedral, she learns the bitter truth about Tōma when Fiamma reveals Tōma lied to her about his memories, which sends her on a rampage and grows angelic "Crimson Wings" and corners Stiyl with ease who tries to restrain her just by flapping her wings. She also has displayed the ability to summon legendary weapons and artifacts to attack, such as the "Sword of Freyr", the magic sword of the Harvest God from the Norse Mythology. After defeating Fiamma, Tōma releases Index's mind from Fiamma's control and both promises each other to meet again. At the end volume 22, she returns to St. George Cathedral with Stiyl to learn what happened to Tōma.
- In New Testament volume 1, Accelerator briefly sees her in the crowd, and he notices that she does not seem to be her usual cheerful self.

- Mikoto Misaka (御坂 美琴 Misaka Mikoto ) is one of the series' main heroines, as well as the main protagonist of the side story, A Certain Scientific Railgun. Her parents are Tabigake and Misuzu Misaka, which her father is a prominent businessman and millionaire. Despite her rich background, she grew up in a normal typical childhood.
- At a young age, she was discovered to be a Level 1 Electromaster, espers who have the ability to generate and control electricity, and see beyond the visible electromagnetic spectrum. She enrolled into Academy City to train her powers and worked very hard until her powers were ranked Level 5, the highest esper ranking, with her being the third strongest of the seven espers with this rank. As an electromaster, she can generate and manipulate electricity which she can use to shock opponents, hack into electronics like computer networks and security systems, and use electromagnetism to cling to surfaces or manipulate iron particles into a chain-sword whip. Mikoto's signature move is her ability to shoot metal projectiles such as coins at high destructive speeds, hence her nickname, "The Railgun". If she is in a bad mood, she will sometimes let out bursts of electricity describing her emotional stress, usually resulting in power failures or in worse cases, a thunder storm that causes citywide blackouts.
- Mikoto attends Tokiwadai Middle School, a famous girls' school for the rich and elite psychics and one of the five elite schools of Academy City. To most people, she is considered a proper lady, but in reality, she has a short-tempered, prideful, and improper attitude with some tomboyish tendencies and insecurities, a fact few other characters know. She is fond of cute, childish things, such as flowery pajamas and Gekota, the popular frog mascot franchise. Contrary to what she claims, she has a strong sense of morals and hates injustice. Mikoto has a one-sided rivalry with Tōma, who nicknamed her "Biri Biri" (ビリビリ, the Japanese onomatopoeia of electric shocks), ever since their first meeting before the events of the first novel when he first dissipated her electricity after he unsuccessfully tried to rescue her. Since that incident, she is always trying to have a proper match with Tōma and defeat him despite his many attempts to avoid conflict with her.
- When Mikoto was young, she was tricked into giving the city's scientist her DNA under the pretense of finding the cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy; their actual goal to create military-grade combat clones of her. When it was discovered that the clones did not have the same power level as Mikoto, they were instead used in a Project called "Level 6 Shift", intended to make Accelerator the first level 6 esper by having him kill 20,000 clones. The events of how Mikoto tried to stop the project are briefly mentioned in the third novel and expanded upon in the Railgun manga. When all of her attempts failed, she contemplates letting herself be killed by Accelerator, as an unexpected variable to destroy Tree Diagram's calculations. However, it is not until Tōma intervenes and beats Accelerator, proving him to be really weak, that the project is canceled and the remaining 9969 surviving Sisters are spared.
- After the events of the third novel, she eventually develops strong romantic feelings towards Tōma but is unable to express them due to her insecurities and the fact other girls are also interested in him. Even though she and Tōma tend to bicker and argue with each other, they share a somewhat friendly relationship. During the events of the 14th novel, she calls Tōma, who is on a trip to Avignon, France when he is attacked by Terra of the Left. Even though his cellphone is damaged, Mikoto is still able to listen and is shocked to hear from Terra that Tōma actually lost his memories and has been hiding this fact from his friends all this time. Confused, she confronts Tōma when he returns to Academy City in the 16th novel. After that, Mikoto overcomes her initial confusion regarding her concern for him and realizes she loves Tōma. She reappears in volume 20, when upon learning Russia might launch missiles against Academy City and seeing Tōma in a live TV report at Russia, Mikoto heads to Russia after hijacking a jet from the Academy City Invasion Force ordered to find and capture Tōma. After arriving in Russia, she and Misaka 10777 heads towards a nuclear military base to stop the missiles from launching. Near the end of volume 22, she tries to rescue Tōma from the falling Star of Bethlehem but he stays behind in order to stop an Archangel. After the Star's destruction, she tries to find him but only finds his cellphone strap.
- After the Third World War, Mikoto returns to Academy City in a depressed state over failing to save Tōma but is relieved when she is reunited with Toma who survived after returning to Academy City.

- Accelerator (一方通行 Akuserarēta ) is the most powerful Psychic in Academy City. His real name is unknown, though Accelerator recalls his surname was composed of two characters and his given name consisted of three characters. First appearing as an antagonist of the third light novel, he later becomes a main protagonist in the science side of the Toaru Majutsu no Index series in a notable number of volumes of the light novels. His name is written as "Ippōtsūkō", meaning "One-Way Road".
- A sadistic, albino boy about the same age as Tōma. His level 5 ability allows him to reflect or control any vector he touches including motion, heat, electricity, blood flow and wind.
- Accelerator's unique ability make him the subject of an experiment attempting to create the first Level 6 psychic; according to the city's best supercomputer, Tree Diagram (which was unprecedentedly destroyed by Index's Dragon Breath), this feat could only be achieved by killing 128 skilled Level 5 psychics without a single failure. Since there are only six other known Level 5s in Academy City, an alternative plan was formed to "level up" Accelerator by having him kill 20,000 skilled Level 3 psychics: the Misaka clones. He willingly joins the experiment to gain a reputation as the most powerful and feared psychic that no one would be foolish enough to challenge and even killed many who got in his way. Mikoto tries to stop the experiment to save her sisters, but it is Tōma who finally does so and defeats Accelerator after discovering his weakness: Accelerator was physically weak because of his total reliance on his powers and his overconfidence in his psychic abilities resulted in his defeat as Tōma beat him with his Imagine Breaker and street-fighting skills.
- After his defeat in volume three of the light novels, he reappears in the fifth novel where his past was also revealed. He was taken to Academy City at a young age when his powers were first discovered but due to a lack understanding of his powers, people fear him and in some cases tried to kill him. Due to the many attempts on his life and the numerous experiments perform on him, these events shaped Accelerator into a sadist and made him hard to trust anyone except for Kikyou Yoshikawa, the only scientist who ever cared about him and saved his life. He also takes a more heroic role by protecting a young girl named Last Order, the last Misaka clone who believes through the memories of the Sister clones who fought him, Accelerator is not bad person and actually never wanted to hurt the clones and tried frightening or telling them not to fight him, a theory Accelerator dismisses. In the aftermath of the incident, Accelerator is shot in the head by Ao Amai, damaging his brain. This forces him to use a cane and to compensate the lost parts of his brain with a choker-type electrode conected to the Misaka Network, but the battery of the electrode can only allow him to use his ability for 15 minutes. Toward the end of volume 13, Accelerator begins to "awaken" after nearly being killed by Amata Kihara and truly "awakens" in volume 15, gaining Black Wings and his lost brain functions, when fighting another "awakened" level 5, Teitoku Kakine showing he no longers needs to touch in order to use his powers. In the events of the 19th novel he meets Aiwass, a higher dimensional being, summoned to their plane of existence. Aiwass explains to him when AIM entities like him are manifested, Last Order is heavily strained and may die if left untreated. To help Last Order, who has collapsed from sustaining Aiwass, Accelerator follows Aiwass advice and heads to Russia during World War III in search of Index, unaware that he has met her before.
- In Russia, after being ambushed by Russian mages, he acquires the "Goatskin", a mysterious document sought after by both Academy City and the Russian government that has the knowledge about the Archangels and Heaven, and later runs into a Misaka Worst clone, learning that Aleister intends to eliminate Last Order, now obsolete to create a new Misaka network. Despite being more powerful than Misaka Worst, Accelerator is unable to bring himself to harm another Sister clone after the Level 6 experiment and becomes mentally unstable after the clone attempts to kill Last Order and later tries to kill herself. Accelerator goes on a rampage until Tōma arrives where he turns his frustration regarding Last Order's condition onto Tōma and a fight ensues between the two. After Accelerator is defeated again, Tōma uses his Imagine Breaker to stabilize Last Order and leaves a note informing him of Index's true whereabouts. Later, he joins forces with Elizarinian soldiers and Misaka Worst to find spies in their country, and fought Archangel Gabriel along with Hyōka, where after studying the Goatskin, he learns to understand the angels language and turning himself into an angel as a side effect. With his new powers, he is able to decode one of Index's songs and was finally able to cure Last Order but is injured in the process.
- After the Third World War, Accelerator is given his freedom with the help of Shiage, after he threatens the Academy City's administration to leave him, Last Order and Misaka Worst alone and orders them to stop all illegal black projects in the city. However, both he and Shiage actions anger a new group of espers called the "Freshmen" who are aware of the existences of Magic and sees them as an obstacle in Academy City's war against the Magic factions. After being helped by Tōma and Leivinia Bardway, the latter invites him to join the world of Magic.

- Shiage Hamazura (浜面 仕上 Hamazura Shiage ) is a former member of Skill-Out, a group of Level 0s who use various means to counter esper abilities, who accidentally gets caught up with the Dark side of Academy City. He is first introduced in the Side Story novels where he became the leader of his Skill-Out gang after Accelerator killed the former leader, his best friend Ritoku Komaba on the orders of the Board of Directors. On the same day he became the new leader, his gang was forced by the Board of Directors to kill Mikoto's mother, Misuzu or face extermination. However, he and his gang were defeated by Tōma and Accelerator and they failed to kill Misuzu. Humiliated, he left the gang to his friend Hattori Hanzo and became a chauffeur and informant for Team ITEM where he fell in love with one of their members, Rikō Takitsubo.
- As a Skill-Out gangster, he follows the gangs rules of not hurting innocents. While not nice or idealistic, he is smart yet acts on his own desires. In battle, he prefers to avoid fighting or to finish the fight as quickly as possible. He gets very embarrassed on sex-related issues.
- During the 15th novel, Team ITEM is involved in a war between the various underground organization where Shiage helps them by providing transport by stealing cars around the city. But when Team ITEM is defeated by Team SCHOOL led by its leader, Teitoku Kakine, Shizuri Mugino, the leader of Team ITEM, wants revenge for being humiliated no matter what and forces an injured Rikō to use her powers to find Teitoku despite the fact that repeated use of her powers will kill her. In order to save Rikō, Shiage fights against Shizuri and despite the odds, he manages to defeat Shizuri by using her pride and powers against her. However, this unexpected incident becomes a torn in Aleister's plans as there was no way Shiage could defeat Shizuri as she is a Level 5. Seeing him as a unpredictable anomaly that will disrupt his future plans, Aleister puts a bounty on Shiage and orders the forces of Academy City's dark side to kill him. Ironically, he is saved by Shizuri, who survived their battle and now has a sense of twisted love for him (declaring she will castrate him as her sign of affection). She lets him and Rikō escape Academy City by stealing a jet and shoots down his pursuers, declaring that he is her prey and her's alone.
- Shiage and Rikō escapes to Russia only to find themselves in a war between Academy City and Russia. After being saved by Acqua of the Back, Shiage and Rikō heads to the nation of Elizarina where Rikō is partially healed by Accelerator and aids Acqua. In order to protect a document called the Kremlin Report, Shiage and Rikō heads towards the same nuclear military base that Mikoto went while they being chased by Academy City forces and later Shizuri. However Shizuri collapses from over-exhaustion as her fragile body is suffering from the effects of using too much Body Clear, a dangerous drug that Rikō uses to activate her powers. Unable to see her this way, Shiage begs Shizuri to let go of her pride and see reason and be the Shizuri that use to care for her teammates which strokes a cord within her and makes peace with him as she protects him and Rikō from the rest of the invading Academy City forces. After capturing a member of the Board of Directors who led the Academy City forces and torturing him, he reveals to Shiage a document called the Parameter List, which reveals that the Academy City administration has been secretly interfering with the Power Curriculum Program and preventing most of the city's students from gaining or raising their powers.
- After the Third World War, Shiage is given amnesty and the assassination order on him removed thanks to Accelerator and makes a deal with the Academy City's administration, where he will not expose the truth about the Parameter List and he, along with Rikō and Shizuri are allowed to return to Academy City to reform Team ITEM. However, his and Accelerator's actions have made them enemies with a new group of espers called the "Freshmen" which is aware of the existence of Magic who sees both of them as an obstacle in Academy City's war against the Magic factions. After Tōma and Leivinia help him and Accelerator against the "Freshmen", Tōma introduces them to the world of Magic.

- Voiced by: Anri Katsu
- A blonde teenager who is always seen with sunglasses and wearing an Aloha shirt. He is a friend and classmate of Tōma who just happens to be his next-door neighbor at the dormitory they're staying at. He unashamedly has a crush on his step-sister Maika and often ends his sentences with 'nya' (the Japanese equivalent of 'meow'.) While he seem like a normal, average teenager, there's more to him than meets the eye. Secretly, Tsuchimikado is actually a former agent of Necessarius who became a freelance spy for Necessarius, Academy City, and other unknown organizations; the leaders of both Necessarius and Academy City are both aware of this but have decided to let him be for the time being. His sorcery name is Fallere825, "The blade to stab the back" (背中刺す刃 Senaka Sasu Yaiba ).
- He was formerly a skilled Onmyōji as his family are descendants of Abe no Seimei but gave up his abilities when he went under the ESP development curriculum. He has a younger step-sister named Maika, whom he is also in love with, and for this he is known as the Shisukon Gunsō (シスコン軍曹 "Sis-con Sergeant" ). He is also a member of one of Academy City's secret organizations, the "GROUP".
- His ESP ability is the Level 0 Auto Regeneration (肉体再生 Nikutai Saisei , lit. "Body Regeneration"). Due to this power, he can still use magic as he can repair the damage done to his body, making him the only successful psychic/magician hybrid. Despite these advantages, he avoids using magic except in the most desperate situations as he cannot avoid the extreme pain caused by using it.
- Blue hair and piercings (青髪ピアス Aogami Piasu )

- Shinobu is a student from Nagatenjōki Academy, who worked on the Sisters' Radio Noise experiment before it was shut down. She was called again when the Sisters project was revived to be used for the Level 6 Shift program. However, when she noticed the Sisters clones had something of a conscience, she was unable to see them as objects anymore. She attempted to stop the experiments by using envelopes containing cash cards to lure in witnesses in the unwatched alleyways, where the Sisters would fight Accelerator.
- She does not appear to have any powers, but uses good acting to invoke fear into people and make them believe she has a deadly one. It is through her that Mikoto learns about the Sisters experiment. She later infiltrates one of the remaining facilities involved with the Sisters project with the hope of installing fear emotions into the Sisters in order to cast doubt and question the morality of the experiment among the scientists involved. However, she was captured by Saiai Kinuhata and her program was apprehended by Last Order before it could spread through the Misaka Network. Her current fate is unknown.
Tokiwadai Middle School
Tokiwadai Middle School (常盤台中学 Tokiwadai Chūgaku ) is one of the elite five schools of Academy City. This elite girls middle school is located within District 7, the School Garden.

- Kuroko Shirai (白井 黒子 Shirai Kuroko )
- Voiced by: Satomi Arai
- Mikoto's kōhai in Tokiwadai Middle School; a protagonist in Toaru Kagaku no Railgun and main character in the eighth volume of the Toaru Majutsu no Index light novels. A Level 4 "Teleport" (空間移動 Kūkan Idō , Spatial Movement), she is a member of Judgment, a special public committee group whose duty is to maintain peace and order in Academy City. She has an obsessive, perverted crush on Mikoto, who she calls "Onee-sama" (big sister) and is on the constant lookout for a chance to get physically intimate with her (which is rarely appreciated). She tends to get jealous towards other people who get Mikoto's attention; which usually ends up being Tōma.
- Her powers are instant teleportation, which allows her to teleport herself and/or anything she touches under a total weight of around 130-137 kilograms to anywhere within a radius of around 81-85 meters. She generally carries a strap of nails around her leg that she can teleport to pin down enemies. Teleporting objects into other objects displaces them, allowing her to cut through hard objects like giant concrete pillars with just a sheet of glass. One disadvantage of her power is the concentration required to perform, for any disturbance in her concentration will make her powers useless.

- Aisa Himegami (姫神 秋沙 Himegami Aisa )
- Voiced by: Mamiko Noto
- A quiet young girl with a rather blunt personality who wears miko attire. While she may seem normal, she is also known as Deep Blood (吸血殺し Kyūketsu Goroshi , "Vampire Killer"), possessing the ability to kill vampires when they approach her, as her blood's smell attracts them. However, it made her miserable because it killed her family and friends that were turned into vampires. This prompts her to go to Academy City, hoping to find a way to get rid of her powers, until she meets the alchemist Aureolus Izzard. She cooperates with him because he told her that her blood can be used to save the life of a person he cared for (Index) in return for helping her get rid of her powers.
- When Aureolus learns Index's life was already saved by Tōma and tries to kill him, Aisa attempts to defend Tōma, which prompts Aureolus to use his alchemy to try to kill her as she was now useless to him. Her life was saved by Tōma who dispelled the spell on her with his right hand. When she asks Tōma about why he saved her, he told her that he did not have a reason to rescue her. After the incident, she lives with Tōma and Index but later moves to Komoe's apartment and wears a magical power-blocking cross, which enables her to live what she had always wanted: a normal life. She initially attends Kirigaoka Academy, but transfers to Tōma's school when her sponsor, Aureolus, mysteriously disappears, thus ending her enrollment at Kirigaoka. Ever since Tōma saved her life, Aisa started to have feelings for him, which is ironic as she once joked that Tōma's life was like a dating sim. It is later revealed that Aisa is a Gemstone, a codename for espers who were born with unique powers.

It is later revealed that she is not a human at all but instead an algorithm of the city's psychic's AIM with a conscious. The nature of her being leads her to be indestructible, as she can recreate any damage done to her body and lift objects several times her size, though she would cease to exist if Tōma were to ever touch her with Imagine Breaker. When not physically manifested, she exists in a realm called the Imaginary Number District which she calls 'the city of shimmers', a hidden dimension within the city. During the 12th novel, she returns but as "FUSE=Kazakiri", her artificial angel mode where she is summoned by the Academy City Board of Directors who forcefully control her to stop an attack by Vento of the Front.

- Voiced by: Harumi Sakurai
- A sophomore attending Kirigaoka Academy for Girls. She is a Level 4 esper with her teleport ability, Move Point (座標移動 Zahyō Idō , "Move Target"). Her teleportation powers are more powerful than Kuroko as she can teleport anything weighing up to 4,500kg without even touching it by a distance up to 800 meters. However, due to a past trauma where she miscalculated and teleported her leg inside a wall, accidentally tearing her leg skin and muscles out from the wall and almost dying, she has a fear of using her powers on herself and feels physically ill whenever she is forced to teleport herself. This fear prevents her from becoming a Level 5.

Academy City's Level 5s
- Within Academy City, the Level 5s are the most powerful psychics in the city. The following are the currently known Level 5s, starting from the strongest:
- Teitoku Kakine
- Mikoto Misaka
- Shizuri Mugino
- Misaki Shokuhō
- Not yet revealed.
- Gunha Sogiita (削板 軍覇 Sogiita Gunha )
- One of the Level 5s in the city. Also known as "Attack Crash", he is commonly shown wearing a white headband, a white coat, and a white shirt with the Japanese sun on it. Having his powers since birth, he is considered Academy City's strongest Gemstone. No one has a clear understanding of his ability, not even himself. However, his powers allow him to create a strange explosion around himself that pushes people away, endure normally fatal damage, perform physical combat with double the speed of sound, cover his whole body with an unknown forcefield, and use a projectile-force which he calls "Amazing Punch". Due to a misunderstanding involving nine Misaka Sister clones, he fights against a powerful magician named Ollerus, but is defeated.
- Introduced in the third story arc of the series, they are Mikoto Misaka's clones, which Tōma refers to as Misaka's little sisters (御坂妹 Misaka imōto ). Unlike Mikoto, they seem rather quiet and emotionless, their voice is rather monotonous and computer-like and they talk in third person by adding a description of themselves after they finish talking. Also, they wear a special set of goggles that enables them to see electron beams and magnetic field lines for the reason that, unlike Mikoto, they do not have that ability.
- Even though they have a weaker variant of Mikoto's electric abilities (Level 3), the Sisters' minds are connected by a special psychic ability called Radio Noise (欠陥電気 Kekkan Denki , "Flawed Electric"), which enables their brainwaves to become electric signals; this allows them to share their thoughts and memories within their communication network, also known as the Misaka Network. Being rapidly manufactured clones, the Sisters rarely change their facial expression because they have not learned how to. Due to minds having connected to the Misaka Network, most of the Sisters never considered themselves human, yet some of them had slight difference in personalities.
- Originally, it was intended that the Sisters were created as efficient Level 5 combat clones for the Military under Project Radio Noise, but the project was halted when the Sisters were revealed to be weaker and were only Level 2 and 3. The Sisters were later used in another project called "Level 6 Shift", where about 20,000 clones were created in total and were used to be killed by the participant who might become the first Level 6 psychic, Accelerator. By the time of third novel, 10,031 were killed in the experiment before it was finally stopped by Tōma and Mikoto. After the Level 6 Shift experiment fails, all 9969 surviving Sisters are ordered back to research centers around the world to have "readjustments" so that they will have normal life spans. The Sisters later began showing their own unique personalities to differentiate themselves after learning how to 'disconnect' from the Network and keeping their own private memories inaccessible to the others in the Network.
- The following Sisters have the most prominence in the series:
- Misaka 10032 (ミサカ10032号)
- Voiced by: Nozomi Sasaki
- Misaka 10032, also known as Misaka Imōto, is the most prominent clone that is most featured in the series. She is known for having a soft spot for cats, while she herself has a pet black kitten. She was the second sister clone that Tōma met. Due to the many interactions she had with him, 10032 wonder why she thought about him so much. Misaka 10032 was Accelerator's latest target in the Level 6 experiment, but Tōma managed to stop him. Confused, she asks why he did it since she was a clone, to which he replied that even though she was a clone, she was still an individual with a life. His words (along with Mikoto's) affect her so much that she and the Sisters decide to help Tōma during his fight against Accelerator.
- After the Level 6 experiment was canceled, she was one of ten Sisters to stay in Academy City while the rest went overseas around the world for treatment. She later falls in love with Tōma and receives a heart necklace from him (so he will not mistake her for the original Mikoto), which she treasures.
- Last Order (打ち止め Rasuto Ōdā )
- Voiced by: Rina Hidaka
- Misaka clone No. 20001. She is the administrator of the Misaka Network and the fail-safe mechanism in case the Sisters got out of control. She is not designed to function independently and survive for long outside a culture container and appears to be only about ten years old. Due to intercepting an emotion program Shinobu Nunotaba intended to install into all of the clones, she is capable of showing emotions unlike the other sisters and has a close relationship with Mikoto, Misaka Imōto, Accelerator and her adult guardians, Aiho and Kikyō. Like her older clone sisters, she speaks in third person with a description, except she says "Misaka" twice. She has all of the memories of the Misaka clones and has observed Accelerator through this method, posing a theory that Accelerator did not actually want to do the Level 6 Shift experiment. Her name is written as "Uchidome", meaning "The End".
- Accelerator meets Last Order when she follows him home one day after he fends off a bunch of street thugs hearing of his defeat against a Level 0. Though Accelerator tries to dissuade her from hanging around him, she persists in following him around because she wants someone to keep her company. She is later kidnapped by Ao Amai so he can infect the Misaka clones to possibly go on a rampage and attack people. Accelerator manages to stop him but gets injured in the process. Last Order and Accelerator are put under the care of Aiho after the incident. Accelerator does all he can to protect her since she is the first person in his life who requested his help. Throughout the story, she remains with Accelerator and has been involved in situations relating to him. After Accelerator's confrontation with Aiwass, she is left in critical condition. However, Accelerator brings Last Order with him to Russia in hopes of finding Index, who may have the knowledge to cure her.
- Misaka 9982 (ミサカ9982号)
- Introduced in Toaru Kagaku no Railgun, she was the first Sister clone Mikoto met. While she was similar to the other clones, 9982 had a rather unusual personalty, as she was very interested in the outside world. She was very snarky to people, often giving long detailed critiques on their taste in food. The one thing that she desired was to meet her older "sister", Mikoto, the girl whom she was cloned from. Upon their first meeting, the two had an awful start due 9982's refusal to reveal to Mikoto what the Sisters were involved in, but they both later bonded somewhat after Mikoto gave her a Gekota badge.
- Sadly, the meeting would be their last as 9982 was scheduled to fight Accelerator that day. Despite being horribly beaten, including having her leg ripped off, 9982 appreciated the time she spent with Mikoto in her last moments. She died, crushed by a passenger car thrown by Accelerator, still clutching the first and only gift she received from Mikoto.

Their appearance is that of a slightly older Mikoto with a darker appearance and personality in contrast to the 1st generation clones, whom show little emotion. Academy City deploys one of the Misaka Worst in their war against Russia, where she attempts to assassinate Last Order. Accelerator tries to stop her without killing her as he does not want to harm another Sister again. After finally subduing the Misaka Worst assassin, he tries to eliminate her programming to make her harmless but she almost kills herself to prevent that, sending Accelerator into an emotional breakdown. Later in volume 21 novel, she makes peace with Accelerator by assisting him. Their names are written down as "Bangai Misaka" ("Extra Misaka").

He was once the greatest magician in modern magic history, where more than half of all modern magicians are affected by this man's established theories, and two-fifths of them are direct followers of his ways. Aleister stretched the boundaries of sorcery farther than the advances made in the last few millenia alone and written many top-class spellbooks like The Book of the Law. His death in 1947 shocked many but it was not the last the world had heard of him. In reality he faked his death to stop his obsessed fanatics following him and secretly went to Japan where during his journey, he met a doctor who he would later call Heaven Canceler. Years later, Aleister, Heaven Canceler and several powerful individuals combined their resources and influences to create one of the most technologically advanced city on Earth at western Tokyo, Academy City.

European magical organizations
In the United Kingdom, three organizations rule Britain's magical affairs. Each three represent a part of Britain's Magical community. Due the joint ruling between the three organizations, they have made Britain one of the most powerful magical organization in the world, rivaling the Catholic Church.
The secret magical branch of the Church of England. Officially name the "Church of Necessary Evil", the organization was started by Puritans who despise the use of magic in England and sought to destroy it by using magic themselves but now the organization no longer has an anti-magic stance and supports magic. Officially, Necessarius is under the authority of the Archbishop of Canterbury but the current leader and Archbishop of Necessarius secretly controls the Archbishop of Canterbury thus Necessarius is the true power behind the Anglican Church. As one of the three magic powers of Britain, Necessarius represent the religious magic community. Necessarius is currently led by Archbishop Laura Stuart.
- Stiyl Magnus (ステイル＝マグヌス Suteiru Magunusu )
- Voiced by: Kishō Taniyama
- A heavy smoker and sorcerer from Necessarius. His sorcery name is Fortis931, "I prove why my name is the strongest here" (我が名が最強である理由をここに証明する Waga Na ga Saikyō de aru Riyū o Koko ni Shōmei suru ). He specializes in using runes to invoke his power over fire, which includes being able to use a flame sword and summon a 3000-degree-Celsius fire elemental called Innocentius (魔女狩りの王 Majokari no Ō , "King of Witch Hunters") to battle his enemies. Styl appears as a man wearing a black robe and has long red hair, and a bar code tattooed on his cheek. Despite his looks, he is actually fourteen years old and is physically weak as casting Innocentius weakens him. While he has a short temper, he is actually kind, as he cares about Index very much and his failure to save her life without losing her memories was his greatest regret. When he learns the Church lied to him and Kaori about Index's condition, Stiyl decides to disobey orders to capture Index and allow her to live her life. Despite the lies, he remains with Necessarius and becomes the assistant to the Archbishop of Necessarius herself.
- Currently he acts as a diplomat to Academy City on behalf of the Anglican Church and is usually sent into missions which happen to end up involving Index and Touma.
- Kaori Kanzaki (神裂 火織 Kanzaki Kaori )
- Voiced by: Shizuka Itō
- An eighteen-year-old Japanese sorceress from Necessarius. Unlike her partner Stiyl, she uses magic to magically strengthen her body. Her sorcery name is Salvare000, "Be the salvation of those who cannot be saved" (救われぬ者に救いの手を Sukuwarenu Mono ni Sukui no Te o ). She uses a two-meter-long nodachi called "Seven Heavens Seven Swords" as her weapon. She has a special attack called Nanasen (七閃, "Seven Flash") that uses her sword and some wires. She used to be a kind woman who treated Index like a sister, but when Index's memories were deleted by Necessarius, Kaori changed into a cold and silent woman as Index no longer remembered her and consequentially did not trust her. After Tōma saves Index's life and her current memories, she decides to let Index stay at Academy City as she feels Tōma can protect her.
- Later in the novels, more of her past is revealed. Not only is Kaori a skilled swordswoman, but she is a Catholic Saint possessing the "Stigma" — the ability to call upon God's power — and the former leader of the Amakusa Catholics; however, Kaori left the group as she resented that she had been fated since birth to become its leader, which led her to despise the concept of luck and fortune. Though she is Catholic, she joined Necessarius in hopes of changing her fate and befriended Index, developing a sisterly relationship with her. The repeated failed attempts to make Index remember her after each memory erasure resulted in her cold personality as Kaori began to accept that no matter how much a person tries, no one can change their destiny. She begins to show a kinder side to herself after Tōma saves Index (thus giving her hope that anyone can defy their destiny) and gradually falls in love with him after he helps her face her past with the Amakusa Catholics, becoming more prone to showing emotion and sometimes showing a little embarrassment if she is with him.

But it failed as not only did the espers participants suffered major injuries from magic but were killed by the Knights of England as the experiment was illegal under the truce between Science and Magic.
