Ze’ena (zeh-eh-nah) reigned as the proud Queen of Ecoria during Nexus’ time. She was a kind and wise woman who held high morals and encouraged spiritual practices, having led according to such standards. Ze’ena was born with the ability to manipulate fire, which she had used once before in a battle against a great enemy while alongside her late King.
Unfortunately, her King died in that battle, leaving Ze'ena alone to look after her child and people. Ze’ena was strong willed and powerful in her reign. She was also, in her youth, an enchanting songstress. She had been trained in the art of combat and was very wistful in battle and in strategy. Ze’ena was also quite knowledgeable in astrology and science.

Before the loss of her planet, Ze’ena caught wind of the Ia'lmun's plans and, after considering all options, knew that there was no way to save her people. But, she did intend to try and fight for them as best she could. She also had preparations made for ships to be readied so that her family could escape. Unfortunately, aside from Nexus, none of them made it safely away in time. Ze'ena almost lost her, but Cale, a boy who was in love with Nexus, succeeded in getting her off of Ecoria. Queen Ze'ena's life came to an end when she was slaughtered on her throne by King Xyocres.


Cale (kay-ul) was a Worker and a servant to Queen Ze’ena. He was very kind and brave in his life, and Ze’ena favored him out of all of her other servants. He was also very educated for a servant, having been taught by his father who once worked as a teacher some time ago before passing on. Cale was an expert strategist and good at language and philosophy. Because of his willingness to serve the queen and his exceptional qualities, Queen Ze’ena allowed Cale to live among the Royal family as a friend and close assistant rather than as a mere servant. She would even seek his advice or opinion on certain things, and Cale grew to love his Queen as a mother.

When Cale was not busy with his work, he would typically retreat to the Royal Library to educate himself further, interested in the knowledge one could pick up from Ecorian literature. Other times, he would train in the courtyard and grow stronger in the case that he needed to protect the Queen, although he had no interest in becoming a soldier. Nexus was very attracted to Cale because of his strength and knowledge, and she often found the stories that he had to tell of his home interesting. Cale was rather fond of Nexus as well, enjoying each chance he had to see her. After a while, the two began to get closer and closer, and they in fact decided to one day be married once they were ready.

Unfortunately, Ze’ena told Cale privately about a very slim chance of their people surviving an attack from an approaching enemy race, and Cale’s heart sank. He knew that he had to protect his people and his loved ones, so he decided to do what he could. Unfortunately, Cale was unable to protect Ze’ena’s brother Qis or the Princess Aeie. Ze’ena, realizing that no effort could stop her people's slaughter, decided to stay behind and hold off the enemy while Nexus escaped.

When Cale prepared to send Nexus to another planet in the hopes that it would be safer there than Ecoria, he decided to stay behind and distract the enemy from noticing the ship that would carry his love away from the planet. He sent Nexus by herself into a ship that would take her to the nearest life-filled planet that she could safely survive on. While Nexus was tearfully sent away, Cale was killed along with Queen Ze’ena, and the Ecorian civilization fell.


Princess Aeie (Ah-eh-ee-eh) was the daughter of Queen Ze’ena and the next in line to take the throne. She was as carefree and free-spirited as her cousin Nexus once was, and she would much rather have lived like the rest of the Ecots as opposed to being a Royal with heavy responsibilities. However, she listened to her mother and was very thoughtful and sweet. She married at a very early age and would often sneak away from lessons to be with her husband.
While Aeie was a troublemaker as a child, she eventually learned how to act more mature when she had to. However, she would still act childish at times whenever her mother was not looking, especially with Nexus, whom she spent a lot of time with. There would be times where Nexus would join Aeie for a lesson and they would talk to each other instead of listening to their teacher. When Ecoria was attacked, she and Nexus discovered the Prince's dead body. Aeie sent Nexus away and stayed behind with her husband in her arms, only to later be slaughtered with him.


Qis (Pronounced "key") was the younger brother of Queen Ze’ena by about a few cycles. He was a warrior—a proud, strong soldier who would always aid his sister in battle. He also served as a personal guard to his Queen and her family. Qis was typically always on edge and fairly stern, which Ze’ena would often tease him for. Qis at one point had a child with a local Worker who died during childbirth. He named the child Nexus.
When she was old enough to take care of herself, he went on to continue working for his sister. He continued to be a father figure to both Nexus and an uncle to his niece, Princess Aeie, when he was not busy with his duties. During the attack on Ecoria, Qis did his best to defend his Queen and her family, but unfortunately was overwhelmed and killed by King Xyocres and his soldiers.


Alexander Knudsen

Alexander was a Danish chemist who worked and lived in the same colony that Akio and the Galaxy Mews did. He was a close personal friend of Akio's, a reliable and kind man, if a bit unusual. Alexander often bothered his colleague when he had a break and bore the misfortune of watching Akio suffer through years of working nonstop on his Galactic Mew Project. He was relieved when told that it had finally been completed, having supported him completely through its creation. He managed to meet the first of the Galaxy Mews, Niji, and became close with her as he did Akio.

The chemist offered himself to go with Niji as a supervisor during her first trip to Earth as a Mew and insisted that if she proved she didn't need anyone to watch over her close by, then from then on, she could go alone (until she acquired more teammates). Akio had hesitated, but Alexander insisted that he go and did not let anyone stop him. Unfortunately, the trip proved fatal, and Alexander was killed by a Chimera Anima. While his friends were devastated by the loss, they did not lose hope and continued to fight.

James Garrison

James Garrison Portrait
James was a close elderly friend of Niji's who worked with her in the Boiler/Machine rooms. He watched over her for a few years when she first got her job there and would often help her out with the heavier work, as she was too frail at first to do it all herself. When the pair weren't working, James would teach Niji how to gamble and play card games. James was a heavy smoker, but he never did so around Niji out of courtesy and of wanting her to be as healthy as possible. Whenever she expressed curiosity about the act, he would always say that her lungs were too young for the stuff.
When Niji wasn't around him or playing card games with their coworkers, James would spend his time wondering what she was doing or worrying about her. Spending time away from Niji since she became a Galaxy Mew was quite taxing to him, but James trusted Akio to treat her well. It was not until later that he found out who Niji was and what she'd done, making him extremely proud. James treated Niji like a daughter, having lost his own during the Rush.

Emi Yamamoto

Emi was the late grandmother of Hikari. She lived in Shibuya with her granddaughter after Hikari's parents passed away. They had died in a car crash, leaving Emi to raise their daughter. She took great care of Hikari and lived in a peaceful home. She would typically tell stories about her life to entertain Hikari or to cheer her up.
Emi worried at some point about the monsters that were beginning to appear around the world, and when she heard that ships had been made ready for humans to escape on, she immediately began to head to them with Hikari, ready to leave everything behind to keep what family she had left safe. Unfortunately, due to her old age, she died on the colonies just a few years afterwards. Emi died hoping that, one day, everyone could return to their homes and be happy again.


Soren is a young man who took care of Hikari when her grandmother died on the colony. He took her in and watched over her, and when Hikari was a little older, she helped Soren manage the marketplace stall he owned. He had been taught well in various forms of fighting and decided to teach Hikari how to defend herself and be brave. Akio approached him, asking if he would allow her to go with him.
While Soren did not want to let go of Hikari, because he considered her a daughter, he did believe that she was strong enough to go on her own and that with the right teacher, she could do something great. Soren eventually let Hikari go, prouder of her than he had ever been. He did not learn of Hikari's being a Mew until much later.

Jason Müller

Jason is Chrysalis’ older brother by about two years. They used to do everything together as children, but spent more and more time apart as they grew older. After the Chimera Anima began appearing, Jason quit working to stay by his family. During the Rush, everything was so chaotic that the two siblings and their parents struggled to stay together. At one point, Chrysalis fell and received a major head injury that left her blind, and Jason had to carry her aboard the colony ship. While the siblings' parents did their best to make a living on the colony, Jason had to take care of Chrysalis, who had trouble adjusting to her new condition.

Eventually, Jason noticed that his sister stopped needing his help. He still tried to shelter her at times, but did let Chrysalis go about her way. When Akio approached him about Chrysalis undergoing surgery to get her sight back and joining the Galaxy Mews upon recovering, Jason was stunned, but vouched for his sister and convinced his parents to let her go. He knew that she was capable, and that if anyone had the will to fight, it was Chrysalis. Akio failed to convince Jason with his lie about making his sister an apprentice, thus Jason knew from the beginning that Chrysalis was a Mew.

Arisu Kojima

Arisu is Hotaru’s older sister by about four years. She is very reserved, sensible, and silent, but does her best to keep Hotaru out of trouble. Ever since the girls were separated from their parents, Arisu became awfully protective and strict compared to how she was when she lived on Earth. Arisu was far more easygoing and carefree back home, still only a teenager at the time. However, she ended up adopting a more strict and stern attitude after the Rush happened. She had to adopt a myriad of new responsibilities because of everything, and the stress of colony life was not helped by Hotaru’s incessant childish antics.

Even though Hotaru's behavior was exasperating, Arisu still did what she could to keep her younger sister safe and help her grow. When Akio approached her about Hotaru, Arisu was worried at first, but knew that if her sister was able to handle herself on her own, then she could certainly be able to do greater things with more training. Not only that, but she truly longed to see her parents again and believed that if her sister and her teammates succeeded, then surely she could see her parents once more and live happily on Earth again. Unlike with Niji and Hikari's guardians Arisu knew from the beginning that Hotaru was a Mew.
