Canaan Wiki

Canaan (カナン, Kanan) is the titular character and main protagonist of the series. She is a mercenary currently operating in Shanghai who was the only survivor of a village destroyed by war in the Middle East before being found and trained by Siam, who has her adopting the name Canaan.


Canaan is a tan-skinned young woman in her mid to late teens with shoulder-length white-blonde hair that has bangs hanging on either side of head, gray eyes and a slim, muscular build.

Her normal attire consists of a red, sleeveless shirt, tan khaki pants, combat boots and a layered red armband wrapping on her left arm to conceal her tattoo, which repeatedly gets ripped off during her fights.


Canaan gets serious whenever she sees Alphard Al Sheya.


Canaan is the sole survivor of her village who was found and trained by Siam as a little girl, who had her adopt the name "Canaan."


Skills and Abilities[]

As an elite mercenary, Canaan is also a skilled marksman and an expert of combat, her weapon of choice most of the time being a Beretta Px4 Type G 9 mm semi-automatic pistol. She has the ability to use synesthesia to aid her in combat, viewing the world in different colors to tell enemies from civilians.


Maria Oosawa[]

Maria is Canaan's best friend. Canaan dearly treasures Maria and tries to protect her whenever she is threatened by the dangerous forces Canaan often goes up against. Despite their bond, Canaan ultimately decides to cut ties with Maria in order to distance her from the deadly mercenary life that Canaan is entrenched in following her final battle with Alphard.

Alphard Al Sheya & Siam[]

Canaan developed a respect for her mentor during the course of her training and later to Alphard as well (Siam's former student who she saw as an older sister figure). But when Alphard betrayed both her and Siam during a mission and left Siam to die, Canaan was consumed by the quest for revenge.



  • It is heavily suggested throughout the majority of the anime that Canaan and Maria's relationship is beyond friendship and that they have romantic feelings for each other.
