Tomoki Sakurai is a perverted teenage boy whose motto is “Peace and quiet are the best,” and often has dreams of meeting an angel. He finds it difficult to live in comfort when he has to put up with Sohara Mitsuki, his next-door neighbor with a killer karate chop; Eishiro Sugata, an eccentric pseudo-scientist bent on discovering the “New World”; and Mikako Satsukitane, a sadistic Student Council President. One night, while he was witnessing a strange anomaly in the sky, an UMA (Unidentified Mysterious Animal) crash-lands nearby. Tomoki discovers what fell from the sky is a winged female humanoid named Ikaros from an unknown world of Synapse, who soon declares herself to be Tomoki’s servant. From then on, more creatures known as “Angeloids” arrive; with this, he loses his peace and quiet, but at the same time finds pleasant things the Angeloids bring him, and fight the forces that fall upon Earth.

The title character of the series, Ikaros is a busty gynoid known as an Angeloid; she falls from the sky at the beginning of the story. After Tomoki recovers her, she forms a bond with him and calls him master: the imprinting is symbolized by a chain from her collar to his hand. She displays a submissive, melancholic and subservient personality, but has shown aggressiveness whenever Tomoki is in danger. She has an expressionless face that makes the other characters wonder if she will ever smile. Her emotions develop slowly, due to her programmed setting of high battle abilities and high processing abilities but low emotional abilities. Despite this, she develops genuine feelings of love for Tomoki. She also goes along with any of his perverted schemes, and eventually burns up into nothing after carrying Tomoki to Synapse, showing him her smile for the first time. She and the others are later resurrected by Tomoki’s final wish.
Although she initially states she is a “Pet-Class” (entertainment-purposed) Angeloid, she is actually a “Strategic Battle-Class” Angeloid. In her previous visit to Earth as the Uranus Queen, she destroys the Tower of Babel. In “Battle Mode”, she employs: Aegis an energy shield sphere; Artemis, which fires an array of energy projectiles from her wings; and Apollon (アポロン Aporon, from the Greek Apollyon?), a bow that fires an arrow of mass destruction. In a later battle, she evolves into Ikaros Version II, with “Dual Variable Wings” that boost her power. Her name comes from the Greek mythological character Icarus, a craftman’s son who flew too close to the sun and fell from the sky.
Sohara is Tomoki’s next door neighbor and childhood friend. She gets annoyed whenever Tomoki acts in a lecherous manner and typically punishes him with a single karate chop. As a child, she was constantly ill and only had Tomoki as a friend. Despite all the punishment she dishes out to him, she secretly loves him, and has embarrassing lustful dreams about him.. She is good at sports, but struggles heavily with English (Spanish in the Funimation dub), and is a deadly cook when it comes to sunny-side up eggs. Eventually, Daedalus reveals that she created Sohara: the girl who died from a childhood illness was Daedalus’s original avatar, and the girl who grew up with Tomoki was a clone she made so that he would not forget her.
Mikako is an upperclassman to Tomoki and Mitsuki and the student body president. She is a childhood friend of Sugata, whom she calls “Ei-kun”, and is the daughter of an influential yakuza boss in Sorami. She is manipulative, cunning, highly intelligent, athletic, and sadistic. She initiates many schemes in the form of festival competitions that place Tomoki in humiliating situations for her amusement. Unlike Sohara and the Angeloids, she directs her romantic affections towards Sugata, and claims him during the mock wedding in the second anime season finale.
Nymph is an “Electronic Warfare Angeloid, Type Beta” (電子戦用エンジェロイドタイプβ（ベータ）?). She is introduced when she finds Ikaros on an errand and attacks her, then later mysteriously appears in Tomoki’s living room where she casually snacks on chips. She has a condescending attitude towards humans, whom she refers to as “bugs”, and she calls Angeloids by their types rather than their names. For example, she calls Ikaros “Alpha”. Despite the attitude, she starts enjoying everyday life and her favorite hobby is eating snacks and watching soap operas.
Nymph’s original mission was to retrieve Ikaros and return her to Synapse, however, she is physically weaker than her and fails in the mission after awakening Ikaros’s Uranus Queen ability, and is consequently heavily punished and abused. After spending time with Tomoki and his friends, she begins to like humans, and soon develops feelings for Tomoki, albeit in an aloof fashion), Nymph eventually betrays Synapse: in the manga she tries to surprise attack the Harpies, while in the anime she sides with Ikaros. In both cases, her wings are consequently ripped off by the Harpies, but Tomoki and friends manage to free her from her link to her master. The wings regenerate when she accepts Tomoki as her new master. After the regrowth, Nymph needs to go through an Imprinting process required for her master; she eventually asks Tomoki, but he refuses and states that he wants her to live freely.
As an Electronic Warfare-type Angeloid, Nymph’s allocation of abilities emphasize her high processing capabilities and high emotional control, but her raw battle power is set low. Nymph is able to hack computer systems as well as other Angeloids and even humans. She uses a device called the Dive Game which enables humans to enter each other’s dreams and through Tomoki’s dream, visit Synapse. Her “Stealth” wings appear sheer, unlike Ikaros’s wings which can only retract to stubs, and she can use them as a radar. She can also fire a high-powered energy beam from her mouth called “Paradise Song” During the battle with Angeloid Hiyori, Tomoki’s encouragement allows her to upgrade her powers to Aphrodite, a “fundamental particle-jamming system” that she uses to hack and free Hiyori. She eventually faces Minos and self-destructs to destroy Zeus.
