#3: “Azurite ~True grace~” by Tae Urakabe (ep 26)
Answering the call of the “Gold Race,” all the sentient races launch into space. The human race is the last to launch, and are thus known as the “Iron Race.” Much time has passed since then, and humanity is threatened with extinction at the hands of the more dominant “Silver Race.” In order to save her people, Princess Deianeira sets out on a journey to a galaxy far away, following the prophecies of the Gold Race handed down by the royal family. Then, she meets a boy named Age. Their encounter will change the fate of the universe…
Set in a distant future, Heroic Age tells the story of the quest of the human race to find the messianic individual that holds the power to save mankind. This savior, named Age, is the only human to have been raised by the Golden Tribe before they departed from the universe. The young princess of the humans, Dhianeila, and the crew of the Argonaut – an advanced spaceship able to travel between stars via lanes called Starways – find Age on the ruined planet Oron. After fending off an attack from a rival tribe, the Bronze Tribe, the human race sets off on a journey of salvation, led by Dhianeila and Age.

Age (エイジ Eiji) Voiced by: Hiroshi Yazaki (Japanese), J. Michael Tatum (English)
Age has the body of a sixteen-year-old boy, but is actually 120 years old; it is unknown how much of this time he was actually “living”, as he may have been in stasis for over 100 years. Age lived on the ruined planet Oron. Wild by nature, he is nevertheless extremely good-natured. Having grown up on a deserted planet, he can easily fend for himself and often hunts. Like other Nodos, Age has shown enhanced agility and immense strength. Since he was taught by the Golden Tribe, who he considered to be his fathers, Age has a limited knowledge about human society, not even knowing the meaning of ‘numbers‘, simple words, or common phrases; the Golden Tribe apparently had no use for numbers and such.
Bellcross (ベルクロス Berukurosu)
The ‘essence’ of the Heroic Tribe life-form within him, which is stored in a stone that is wrapped around the optical nerve of Age’s right eye. When summoned, Age’s body is enveloped with that of Bellcross. Bellcross is considered to be the strongest of the remaining Heroic Tribe. It is shown to have the ability to absorb its enemies’ life force and release it as a destructive energy blast. Bellcross has a humanoid body approximately 50 feet (15 m) tall, and joints made of very large blue spheres.
Dhianeila Y Leisha Altria Ol Yunos (ディアネイラ・イ・ライシャ・アルトリア・オル・ユーノス Dianeira I Raisha Arutoria Oru Yūnosu) Voiced by: Yui Ishikawa (Japanese), Caitlin Glass (English)
The young princess of the Iron Tribe and the heroine of the story. By using information passed down by the royal family, she takes it upon herself to search for the one she considers their savior. Along with her psychic and telepathic powers, she has the power to create spiritual projections, though not as powerful as those of the Silver Tribe. Her telepathic powers also seem to be so powerful that she can automatically read the minds of those around her. It also is revealed that Dhianeila cannot handle the spiritual waves of an impure man, so men have to be at least 10 meters away from her, or else she may lose consciousness and collapse.The only man to have ever been able to approach her, and make her not lose herself is Age, and in recent episodes Iolaus.
Iolaous Oz Mehelim (イオラオス・オズ・メヒリム Ioraosu Ozu Mehirimu) Voiced by: Takashi Kondo (Japanese), Joel McDonald (English)
The young leader of the Yunos Knights, a squadron of robot fighter pilots. Uptight but very responsible, he is extremely loyal to Dhianeila. He initially dislikes Age and gets jealous over Dhianeila becoming close to him, but quickly becomes Age’s friend. Iolaus has a secret collection of holographic pictures of Dhianeila.
Iolaus has the ability to teleport himself and another, when he touches them.The range of this ability has so far been shown to be intra-planetary, with his longest teleport so far being from orbit around Titarros to the surface of said planet. Iolaus can only teleport others along with him if they are mentally willing to do so. His mecha can teleport when a special engine is engaged, and the engine is also capable of transporting other mechas along with his own, if distance between Iolaus’ and the other mechas allows.
