Loki: Loki is the main antagonist throughout most of the series. Loki is a pseudonym created by Oliver Moore, Gaia's uncle (and her fathers twin brother). As a child Oliver Moore was usually sick and weakly, he was susceptible to illnesses and contracted a rare disease. He undertook a risky treatment at a young age to help fight this rare disease (which would have killed him if left untreated). The treatment may have altered his psychological state of mind and led to his eventual aggressiveness and madness later on in his adult life. The treatment also left him sterile, and incapable of having children. From a young age the two twins (Oliver and Tom) were gifted with extraordinary intelligence and reasoning. As the two identical twins matured, Oliver and Tom both gained physical endurance, strength and a mastery over the Martial arts (Oliver was always the best out of the two in hand to hand combat). As a young adult Oliver worked for the CIA, (after catching the eye of a CIA official with a brilliant thesis paper). He later defected from his CIA position to an underground organization led by Yuri (A terrorist leader who is Katia's father, and Gaia's grandfather)after feeling that the CIA organization was exploitative (Oliver was reassigned to a lower division and Tom took his place for solving a code) and losing his chance at romancing Katia (due to the fact that Tom proposed to marry her). This leads to Oliver working with Yuri, trying to gain Katias trust. This does not work and in frustration and selfishness Oliver eventually incapacitates Tom with sedatives and takes sexual advantage of Katia by posing as Tom, on the night of Tom and Katia's wedding. After Katia is raped, Oliver manages to escape the building but is caught by Yuri, up to this point it was not revealed that Yuri is Katia's father. Oliver is not heard from again for a couple of years and it is strongly implied that he is taken as a hostage and is tortured at a terrorist camp. During this time his mental state may have become unraveled and he may have learned methods to become a terrorist leader. Eventually Oliver (going by the name Loki, by assuming that his "perfect" brother is Apollo) gains control of Yuri's terrorist organization. Through this organization he terrorizes the lives of civilians and becomes a ruthless tyrant, killing and committing illegal and inhuman atrocities to expand his underground organization. It is implied several times throughout the series that while Oliver Moore and Loki refer to the same person, the two are separate identities, with Oliver being meek, weakly, petite, and polite; while Loki is aggressive, ruthless, conceited, abusive towards others and extremely dangerous and emotionally unstable. Loki is an identical twin to his brother so they look exactly the same (except for a slight change of the chin); 6 feet tall, blond and blue eyed. In hand to hand combat Loki is not as good as Gaia, and has fled from her in order to survive. But his skills against other people are unsurpassed. Loki is more capable than Tom at martial arts and is able to incapacitate and kill four grown FBI men within seconds. His fighting style is ruthless and causes extensive irreversible damage to the victim. Loki shows extreme paranoia and has the ability to be very charming when he wants to. He is also a master at lying and can make any story sound believable, he is also extremely intelligent. Throughout the book series, Loki is depicted as having many agents and far reaching connections that he uses at his disposal, his organization is global and he is in command of all. He is immoral and will kill anybody who stands in his way, he also views people as disposable waste and tends to do as he wills. The books strongly imply that this is a result of low self-esteem, and a feeling of helplessness as a child and young adult (also a risky medical treatment as a child) that led him to create an all powerful and fearful persona as an adult. At the end of the series, Loki realizes that he needs to turn himself in to a mental hospital in order to not harm any other people. This realization comes after Loki sees part of himself in Chris Rodke and realizes that only tragedy comes from insecurity and selfishness.
David Twain: David Twain is the metaphoric brother of Gaia who is introduced in the fourth book of the series. Physiologically, he is the same as Gaia Moore; fearless. He grew up on a farm as a young child and was described as a peaceful and nice kid. Because of his fearless nature, he was eventually found and trained by Loki. Due to the intense and brutal training he received from Loki, David became mentally insane and psychotic. David was trained by Loki's organization to believe that Gaia was his superior. Because of this, he developed an intense rivalry with Gaia, unbeknownst to her. Although David was not trained in martial arts like Gaia, his fearless nature gave him similar advantages that Gaia had: super strength, agility, stamina, suppression of pain and complete fearlessness. He became obsessed with proving he is better than Gaia, to the point that he escaped from Loki's organization and began to search for her, killing people who looked similar to her along the way. He eventually reaches New York and begins to kill people, which is where the fourth book starts off. Throughout the fourth book Gaia is actively trying to track him down, as he was a mysterious but famous serial killer who's had many victims in different states. Eventually he tracked Gaia down and enrolled into her school posing as a new student. He killed a girl who looks similar to Gaia: Cassie Green, and almost attacks Mary and Gaia at the park. He set up a lunch date with Gaia the next day, pretending to have a crush on her. During the lunch date Gaia figured out who he was, and brought him over to the park. She was attacked by him in the park. Gaia barely managed to win the fight against him with the help of Ed Fargo and with the secret help of Tom Moore, who managed to shoot David with his silenced pistol. When David was incapacitated by Gaia, Gaia and Ed decide to leave him there, thinking the police will find him. David is then killed by Loki, who was secretly observing the fight. Davids part in the series was to serve as a test for Gaia, Loki wanted to find out if Gaia was capable of winning against another genetically fearless person. Because she passed, Loki decided to go ahead with his plans of kidnapping and cloning Gaia. David is physically stronger and more faster than Gaia as he was taller than her at six feet. He liked to wear a duster and loafers. David was very skinny and had blue eyes and black hair. His favorite weapon against his victims was a long thin knife, whose blade was tinted dark blue.

When Ella learns that Loki plans to move to Europe with Gaia without letting her know, she becomes enraged and orders an assassination on Gaia.

The Droogs were composed of the neo nazi group from the beginning of the series; their mission was to kill Gaia for revenge.

Only when the droogs passed out from the effects of the drug or bled to unconsciousness would they stop attacking. The Invince Drug made the Droogs hysterical, manic, and completely violent.
