Visions of Escaflowne


Inhabitants of Earth and Gaea. They live an average lifespan and with few exceptions (e.g. Hitomi Kanzaki), possess no supernatural abilities. Most of the main and secondary characters are humans.


The Draconians descended from the Atlanteans. They are almost identical to humans, aside from their ability to sprout feathered wings which enable them to fly.

Known Draconians[]


The Ispano were servants of the Atlanteans. Visually, they appear as short, cloaked and hooded humanoids, their only visible features being camera-goggles rather than eyes.

Beast People[]

Beast people are creatures who have traits of both humans and animals.




  • Mole Man
  • Dolphin man (Asturia)
  • Gecko People (Asturia)
  • Rat Man (Dryden's advisor)
  • Adama Esh (Master Swordsman of Gaea)


The Doppelgangers are shapeshifters who can take on the knowledge and appearance of their chosen marks. Once transformed, they are so indistinguishable from the original that not even another doppelganger can tell the difference.

In their natural state they are long and skeletally lean, with large eyes, chalk pale skin, dark tiger-stripes and pointed ears which extend outward from their heads.

Known Doppelgangers[]

  • Zongi
  • Lig Vieta (Master Swordsman of Gaea)
  • Unknown Doppelganger (deceased)


One mermaid is seen in the series: Sylphy, bought and freed by Dryden.
