Twenty-five years after Éclair and Lumière rescued the galaxy from destruction’s doorstep, the GTO (Galactic Trade Organization), created after the defeat of the GOTT (Galactic Organization of Trade and Tariffs), act on behalf of universal peace by combating criminal activity. Their special ES division mirrored after the GOTT’s ES (Encounter of Shadow-work) force, now includes publicly acknowledged ES member candidates.
Now, Ascoeur is a waitress, and an silly one, when asked to go to the Director’s office, she does so, but in the meantime she forgets an important detail, the coffee she was supposed to serve. Just like this, she has trouble remembering orders and relies on Q-feuille, her partner, to help with that aspect of the job.
When she gets into a conflict with her supervisor over whether it’s proper to wear bloomers under her uniform, the disagreement turns into a major argument, with Ascoeur only removing her bloomers as Director Hiver shows up to be served. It’s too late that Ascoeur realizes that, along with her bloomers, she also removes something else.
Soon, a group of elder gentlemen show up to the restaurant, but they’re actually on a mission to assassinate the director, so they shed their disguises and don heavy armor.
But Ascoeur is more than a regular waitress, suddenly she starts fighting against the assasins. She uses a beam sword to defeat the the attackers ultimate weapon, a robotic dragon. Though she’s scolded for her reckless behavior, she’s encouraged by other members of her organization and told of her bright future.
Ascoeur is relative to the series’ predecessor Kiddy Grade, she retains elements of Éclair’s personality: her recklessness and simple nature, in addition to being spastic and childish. While she and Q-feuille are ES member candidates, they are currently waitresses for the Touch & Go! cafe within the GTO headquarters. She is also known to have a strong love for pumpkin pudding, to the point she would break into the GTO to get some. Her special ability, “Push-Pull,” is teleportation. She has inherited Trixie’s ability to bend space. While powered-up by Di-air’s kiss she is able to teleport further, faster and while carrying multiple bodies. Her name is French for “have heart”, shown where her pigtails are formed into the shape of small hearts.
Q-feuille has qualities reminiscent of Lumière: her intelligence and serious nature, in addition to a heightened sensitivity to embarrassment. She also is an anime otaku, particularly of a Cardcaptor Sakura parody show, Card Getter Sakura. Like Ascoeur, is an ES member candidate, but currently works as a waitress for the Touch & Go! cafe. Her special ability, “Parfum,” is foresight, but is seldom used as it seems to be weak. However, with Di-air’s kiss she is able to predict actions with precision. She has inherited Troisienne’s ability to stop time. Though she should be sixteen-years-old, she reveals to Di-air that she is seven-years-old. Her name is from the French “Quatre Feuille” or “Four leaf”, as in clover.
Di-air is a seven-year-old girl recruited as an ES member candidate, apprenticing under Ascoeur and Q-feuille. Her past is shrouded in a mystery even she does not know, but is implied it was a life of perpetual darkness. Although her hair seems adorned by red hair clips, she can twitch them at will like ears. Her special ability allows her to increase the magnitude of other people’s abilities, through a lips-to-lips kiss.
T.A.M.A is a pocket-sized, lime-green creature whom befriends Di-air and terrorizes Ascoeur and Q-feuille when the trio are assigned to investigate the ruins of the GOTT headquarters. With Di-air’s kiss, he was able to gather remnants of nanotechnology to shape-shift into a Genetech Beast. The trio bring him back to the GTO headquarters where Di-air wears him as a pochette.
