On the way, the two of them meet up with Amelia and Zelgadis in the kingdom of Luvinagard while taunting some pirates.

Main Characters

Lina Inverse (Rina Inbasu)
Voices: Megumi Hayashibara (Japanese), Lisa Ortiz (T.V series), Cynthia Martinez (Movies / OVAs) (English)
Lina is the primary protagonist and the only character that appears in all incarnations of Slayers. She is an adolescent but very powerful sorceress, with a great love of money, treasure (especially the magical sort) and food. In the anime and manga (but not the light novel) Lina uses overly destructive magic recklessly (but comically), often with little provocation. She is reputed to be an evil, powerful, destructive, diminutive sorceress (the evil part isn't true). She has an older sister, Luna, who is a powerful swordswoman. Although Lina has faced down dragons, monsters, and even Dark Lords with little fear, the mere mention of Luna's name sends her into terrified hysterics. She also suffers from a fear of slugs.

In the first episode of the TV series, she introduces herself by destroying a gang of bandits known as the Dragon Fangs. She steals a large portion of their treasure, then sets off towards the nearest town to cash it in for a sizable profit. On the way to the town she is ambushed by the remainder of the Dragon Fangs. However, mere seconds before she would have blasted them to bits, Gourry Gabriev valiantly comes to her "rescue" and they begin their adventures together. In manga, anime and novels, Lina and Gourry do fall in love, but acting on these feelings is an entirely different story.

Ages (Rough estimates,Lina is short for her age):
* OVAs and Movies: 13 to 14, 16 (In Premium only)
* First Series: 15 (Lina directly states her age as 15 in episode 15)
* Second Series: 16
* Third Series: 17

Gourry Gabriev (Gauri Gaburiefu)
Voices: Yasunori Matsumoto (Japanese), Eric Stuart (T.V Series) & Christopher Patton (Slayers Premium movie) (English)
Gourry is a wandering swordsman who meets up with Lina in the first episode of the television series. He accompanies her from then on. He carries the fabled Sword of Light, originally known as Gorun Nova before it came to the Slayers world.

Gourry is somewhat less than scholarly and appears to have serious memory deficit along with ADD, but his skills as a swordsman are unmatched throughout the franchise. A characterization of Gourry from his manga profile is "as loyal as man's best friend but not quite as smart." After he meets Lina he decides to become the "little girl's" unpaid bodyguard (despite his disappointment at his charge's lack of development), and they slowly get to know one another. Gourry's kindness (he spares the life of his rival Zangulus on several occasions), loyalty (absolute to Lina) and consideration for others is clear throughout the franchise, but is not as quixotic as that of the Seyruuns'.

Ages (Rough estimates):
* Premium: 23
* First Series: 22
* Second Series: 23
* Third Series: 24

Naga the White Serpent
Voices: Maria Kawamura (Japanese), Kelly Manison (English)
Naga is a buxom sorceress with an obnoxious laugh (similar to Ayeka Masaki Jurai's in Tenchi Muyo! and Kodachi Kuno's in Ranma ˝) who is Lina's partner in the movies and OVAs.

Naga was often found hanging around Lina Inverse during Lina's earlier adventures, but the two had later parted company under unknown circumstances. During the time that they were together, whenever Naga was around, she was either working together with Lina or against her, all the while irritating the red-headed sorceress to no end.

Ages (Rough estimates):
* OVA's and Movies: 19 to 20, 22 (In Premium)

Zelgadis Greywords (Zerugadisu Gureiwazu)
Voices: Hikaru Midorikawa (Japanese), Daniel Cronin (episodes 2-10) & Crispin Freeman (Episodes 18-78 and Premium film) (English)
Zelgadis is a sorcerer who begins the various incarnations of the franchise as a retainer for his ancestor Rezo, opposed to Lina, but ends up in Lina and Gourry's group. He is a chimera made of rock golem, brau (English trans. brass) demon, and human.

Zelgadis Greywords tends to become something of an enigma to his comrades, due to his quiet and antisocial nature. As a boy, he was transformed by Rezo, the red priest — who is either or both his grandfather and great-grandfather (the translation is unclear and differs) — into a three-part chimera. One third is golem, one third is human, and the last third is brau-demon (a being neither demon nor mazoku). The golem third turned him into stone, and ordinary weapons can't hurt him (unless wielded with Gav-like strength), making Zelgadis nearly unstoppable in a physical fight. The demon third enables him to run faster than the eye can see, and grants him great power in Shamanist magic. The human third was simply a remnant of the old Zelgadis, before Rezo changed him.

Ages (Rough estimates):

* Premium: 18
* First Series: 17
* Second Series: 18
* Third Series: 19

Amelia Wil Tesla Seyruun (Ameria Wiru Tesura Seirun)
Voices: Masami Suzuki (Japanese), Joani Baker (episodes 11-13), Veronica Taylor (episodes 14-78), and Luci Christian (Slayers Premium film) (English)
Amelia is a young miko (shrine-maiden, sometimes translated as priestess) and the princess of Saillune with an unwavering (quixotic) belief in justice. She joins Lina's group during the first TV series. Amelia longs to be a "hero of justice" and quixoticly pursues her quest by following Lina and fighting (what appears to her as) villains. Amelia's naive tendency to believe whatever she is told sometimes leads her to mistake friend and foe. In the novels, Amelia is older and taller than Lina, but in the Animanga franchise Amelia appears to be both younger and smaller (though very busty, much to Lina's annoyance). In all incarnations of the franchise Amelia's manner is that of a little girl playing crusader.

Wherever there's a crime, you'll find Amelia tripping close behind. She’s a helpful little princess who's always either in the way or flat on her face (or in a headlock from Lina). She initially comes across as a very dense little kid who really can't tell the good guys from the bad guys. Although Lina was often annoyed with Amelia for her wide-eyed naiveté, desire to learn the Dragon Slave, and larger bust size, eventually Lina comes to accept her as a friend. Most of Amelia's lessons in justice and heroism came from her father Prince Philionel of Seyruun, the "ultimate pacifist" armed with a variety of oxymoronic but very effective attacks, whom Lina once mistook for a bandit king (TV series). It is rumored that Naga the White Serpent might be Amelia's long-lost older sister, the crown princess Gracia (this rumor was later confirmed by Hajime Kanzaka during an interview). After the murder of her mother, Amelia has vowed never to use blades, but once used the Sword of Light to channel the Ra-Tilt. Amelia seems to eventually develop a crush on Zelgadis.

Ages (Rough estimates):

* Premium: 15
* First Series: 14
* Second Series: 15
* Third Series: 16
* Novels: 17-18

Filia Ul Copt (Firia Uru Koputo)

Voices: Houko Kuwashima (Japanese), Tara Sands (English)
Filia made her first appearance in Slayers TRY. She is a Priestess of the Fire Dragon King. Being a Golden Dragon, she has a huge sense of honor and is dedicated to "fulfilling her duties to the temple." She is annoyed to great extents by any monster that crosses her path. She carries a large mace (affectionately dubbed Mace-sama) in her garter, and uses it to end many of her arguments. Filia originally wanted Lina's big sister Luna to accompany her on her quest, but Luna refused and suggested Lina as a replacement.

Age (Rough estimates):
Third Series: Unknown (Presumed to be a few hundred years). In her human form, she appears to be in her early 20s.

Voices: Akira Ishida (Japanese), David Moo (T.V Series) & Kurt Stoll (Slayers Premium movie) (English)
Xellos is a high level Mazoku (see Universe section below), who is thousands of years old. Xellos is the Priest and General of "Greater Beast Zelas-Metalium."<1> Great Beast is described as one of the five demon lords "given birth to" by Shabranigdo.<2> The remaining 3 of the 5 demons lords each has a Priest and a General imbued wtih tremendous power, although Greyschwaller has 2 of each. In Xellos' case, he serves as both Priest and General to Zelas, making him the most powerful being in the world outside of the Mazoku and Dragon gods. Xellos served Hellmaster Phibrizzo (another of the five demons) in his attempt to destroy Gaav the Demon Dragon King. Gaav stated that Xellos was given power beyond any Mazoku created by Shabranigdo, outside the five demon lords. Dragons fear Xellos and see him as their mortal enemy after he killed half the population during The War of Monster Fall. In the 6th Slayers novel (Vezendi's Shadow), Xellos says his real name is simply Xellos the Priest. He is also known as Beastmaster Xellos (dub only), "trickster priest" (by many, including himself) and "namagomi" ("raw garbage" by Filia) or simply Xellos. Xellos is sometimes a hindrance, sometimes helpful to Lina and her friends. He claims to serve to goals of Phibrizzo, and in season three that of the Monster race, but his actions do not always appear consistent. His trademark response to any important question is, "Sore wa himitsu desu!" (Literally: "That is a secret!"). A constant duel goes on between fans whether there is a love or hate, or even a love-hate relationship between Xellos and Filia. He first appears in the second episode Slayers NEXT.

Age: Over 1000.
