Ayeka is the first crowned princess of the planet Jurai and the heir to the throne. She looks to be very gentle and the complete opposite of Ryoko. Ocassionally, she shows a darker side made of an iron will. She generally shows this side when fighting with Ryoko over Tenchi's love. They are constantly fighting and are arch rivals because they both love Tenchi.

Sasami is the second crowned princess of the planet Jurai and Ayeka's little sister. She is skilled cook and usually finds herself cooking for the entire Masaki household. She is fun-loving and has a level head. She shows affection towards Tenchi, but more as an older brother than anything else. Her and Ryo-ohki quickly became good friends and where one is you are sure to find the other close by.

Mihoshi is a member of the Galaxy Police (GP) and is often thought of as incompetent. Despite this, she always tries her hardest and often wins through bravery and a whole lot of luck. She is clumsy, accident-prone and easily distracted while she is also cheerful, hard-working and brave. Not to mention she has an incredible amount of luck.

English Voice:K. T. Vogt
Japanese Voice:Yuko Kobayashi
Washuu has got to be my all time favorite character! She has many different pasts, many of which are shrouded in mystery, and is possibly the most eccentric character. In the OAV she credited with the creation of Ryoko, Ryo-Ohki and Kagato's ship, the Soja. She is one of three goddesses (perhaps the most mysterious element of her, for that story arc has not yet been completed), and she has had a husband and a child. But they were taken away form her due to social status. That is why she chose to remain in the form of a child, so she didn't have to deal with the pressures and trivialities of being a grown-up. She was also Kagato's professor, but soon after she created Ryoko, he imprisoned her for 5,000 years until she was released by Mihoshi. In Tenchi Universe, she was a professor of a science academy but was expelled 700 years ago and trapped in a cave on Earth for making a weapon that could destroy the Universe. In Tenchi in Tokyo, she is a renegade mad scientist who was hired by Ryoko. In any series, she can be very helpful or very dangerous. She admires Tenchi for his incredible powers and that is why he has become her "favorite gineau pig."

Kiyone is the only character that did not appear in the OAV. Her first appearance was in Tenchi Universe (TV1). She is a member of the GP and is Mihoshi's partner. She was once the rising star at the academy and everyone thought she was going places until she was put with Mihoshi, now they are both laughing stocks at HQ. Kiyone is very level-headed and dedicated to her job. She blames Mihoshi for her downfall and hates her for that. But I think she's gotten used to dealing with Mihoshi and has even began to grow a liking to her.

Ryo-Ohki is a part mineral, part organic lifeform. She is able to take on six completely different forms. The most common being the half-cat, half-rabbit form, also known as a cabbit. The first time we see her is as Ryoko's crystalline spaceship. The image shown is her cabbit form transforming into this spaceship.She can transform into the spaceship at will. The ship is populated with control crystals, which is another form she can take. Ryo-Ohki merges with a creature made up of Mass (which is a polymorphic material of some kind) and transforms into a half-human like form. First as a young adult, but since she lacks the motor skills of a human, she becomes a little child in order to learn them. However, this form is very unstable and a sudden shock or fall can cause her to revert back to her cabbit form. In Tenchi in Tokyo, she transform in to a pink mechanoid, shaped as a giant rabbit, which is piloted by Sasami. In all of her forms, Ryo-Ohki can fly, walk through solid objects (dematerialize), and LOVES carrots!
