This is a list of minor Characters of Planetes (Anime).

Debris Section Office Staff

Philippe Myers

  • Voiced by: Aikou Ogata in Japanese, Doug Stone in English
The chief clerk of the Debris Section. He is overweight but jolly, and calls his co-workers by the first syllable of their names. At first glance, he seems like a bumbling stereotypical salaryman, however, when given the chance, shows heroic courage. His hair colour changes throughout the series, from very light blonde to reddish-brown (It was revealed to be a wig in the final episode). His physical mannerisms throughout the series strongly suggest that he wears a hairpiece (and this is confirmed in the last episode of the anime). Gigalt gave him the nickname of "Marshmallow".

Arvind "Robbie" Ravi

  • Voiced by: Tetsuo Goto in Japanese, Steve Schatzberg in English
The assistant chief clerk and self-described "Number 2" of the Debris Section who hails from India. He is a divorced father of seven children. He is portrayed as a trickster or prop comedian with a very flexible body. Seemingly obnoxious and opportunistic, he seems to always seek to climb the corporate ladder. However, this is because he pays a substantial amount of child support, and seeks a better life for his many children. His nickname, taken from his comic turns, is "Sunflower", given to him by Gigalt.

Edelgard Rivera

  • Voiced by: Maiko Itou in Japanese, Kate Higgins in English
The temporary worker, who does the secretarial and clerical duties of the Debris Section. She works in the Debris Section in order to complete her studies. Projecting a quiet and professional exterior, she hides a darker past which she wishes to leave behind her.[1] Her nickname from Gigalt is "Hourglass". In the final episode, her contract at Technora ends but decides to work as a regular employee at the General Affairs section.

ISPV 7 Staff

The ISPV 7 Staff only appear in the anime.

Claire Rondo

  • Voiced by: Kumiko Watanabe in Japanese, Lia Sargent in English
Main article: Claire Rondo

Kho Cheng-Shin

  • Voiced by: Nobuyuki Hiyama in Japanese, Steve Blum in English
A spacecraft pilot based in the ISPV 7 Space Station. He has been friends with Claire and Hachimaki ever since they all came to the Space Station together. He is often playing confidant to Hachimaki. Cheng-Shin has a crush on Tanabe.

Von Braun characters

Goro Hoshino

Werner Locksmith

  • Voiced by: Unshō Ishizuka in Japanese, Dave Mallow in English
The CEO of the Jupiter Mission and Chief Designer of the Von Braun Jupiter Exploration Spacecraft. Seemingly cold and heartless, he is portrayed in the anime and manga as someone without sympathy and believes that the ends justify the means. This implies getting the Von Braun to Jupiter no matter what the cost is, human or monetary.

Hakim Ashmead
