Agnes Kisaragi is a character from Jetter Mars and is a major character in The Knights of the Multiverse, introduced in Season 1. She is an experimental Android with the ability to generate fire directly from her body, and is one of Honey Kisaragi's adoptive daughters.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Despite her rather grim past, Agnes still manages to be friendly, kind and hopeful, and that's mainly thanks to her family. Honey's motherly care has rekindled her sense of hope, as well as a strong sense of justice, and helping her take care of Honey Jr. gave her something to fight for and kept her sensible. However, when her mother finally allowed her to go back out into the world, Agnes didn't know if she'd be able to fit in at first. After all, she was only born to simply be an experiment, and she had spent more than half a decade hiding from the rest of the world, so she didn't know if she could adjust to a normal life. She didn't feel like she deserved it. But as she's spent time/continued to fight with the rest of the Knights, especially thanks to Emily's "encouragement", she started to become more outgoing and open to new experiences.
History[edit | edit source]
Pre-Series[edit | edit source]
Agnes, or F-1 (Fire One) as she was originally designated, was created a little over nine years ago in an EDC experiment to create a series of androids that possessed elemental powers. F-1 tested perfectly, but she was treated very poorly by the staff, only being treated as an experiment rather than a living individual. Out of rage, she started a massive fire in the laboratory that destroyed all of the data for the other androids in and left the head scientist scarred. In the middle of the chaos, F-1 managed to sneak out of the facility and fade away into the back corners of Tokyo. While searching for somewhere to hide, she saw what looked like a little girl robot sitting alone in the rain and mud, begging her for some help, saying she didn't want to die. She gave her some of her energy and, after hearing her story, promised to find her as much energy as she needs.
Six months passed, and as F-1 was trying sneak some old power cells from a convenience store, she was caught by Honey Kisaragi. She gave chase and cut her off, but when she explained her and Honey's story, Kisaragi took pity on the two and offered them a place to stay at her father's old house. There, Kisaragi decided to give her a name: Agnes (it just seemed really cute), and to avoid confusion between her and Honey, she called the smaller android "Honey Jr.". Agnes never told the two about her past, wanting simply to start a new life with her new sister & mother and leave that part of her behind, so she simply said that she ran away from a bad household (which wasn't exactly wrong). The trio would only continue to grow close for the next eight years.
MIni-Series[edit | edit source]
Though not seen in the opening Mini-Series, Agnes did get a namedrop in it, with Honey telling her that she might be home later than she thought as she saw the attack on the New Photon/Saotome Labs.

Powers & Accessories[edit | edit source]
- Flower Beads
Given to her by Honey Jr., Agnes has two flower beads she wears in the front of her hair.
As previously stated, Agnes can generate fire directly from her body. The heat surrounds her entire body in a red/pink flaming aura that makes her impervious to any heat-induced physical harm and allows her to absorb most forms of energy and heat into her body harmlessly. Her flames allow her to hurl fireballs, send in whirls of flames and shoot straight beams of fire. The energy she absorbs also increases her firepower (hehe) considerably, since that much energy has to go somewhere. This aura also increases her strength dramatically, able to cut weaker mechs in half in one blow (leaving them scorched), and propel herself into the air, with great speed and control.
It also doesn't affect her clothing and flower beads.
- Advanced Agility
Thanks to training she received from her mother, even without her fire powers activated, Agnes is very agile, able to leap tall distances or perform gymnastics with relative ease.
Combo Attacks[edit | edit source]
- Double Fire Lancer
Combo attack w/ Emily: The duo surround themselves in Agnes's fire aura and charge forward incredibly fast, with Emily's sword absorbing much of the fire's strength.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Though the two only appear to be a few years apart in age, as the one who saved her and H.J., Agnes loves and respects Honey a lot, thinking of her as her adoptive mother. She'll often be the first one to turn to when she feels lost or just needs someone to talk to.
Emily[edit | edit source]
At first, Agnes viewed Emily as a good friend, heightened by their pasts as androids with insane powers that escaped their mad creators. But that changed when Emily revealed she had feelings for her. Romantic feelings. At first, she was confused and didn't know how to feel, since she hadn't really experienced anything like this before... but that didn't mean she wasn't willing to try.
Catra[edit | edit source]
Atros[edit | edit source]
As another robot that was treated more like a tool than a living, thinking individual, Agnes was one of the first ones to side with Atros when she changed sides.
Agnes and Epsilon became good friends quickly, with the two bonding over their stories of being big sisters and for wanting to distance themselves from their creators' violent intentions.
Notes[edit | edit source]
Agnes's fire abilities are actually a juxtaposition on her fate in her original incarnation, where she was burned down to her metallic frame trying to save the show's main hero, the titular Jetter Mars. She was also shot as well and died in Mars's arms. This parallel is drawn even further by the color of Agnes's aura being the same colors of the flames that killed her in the original.
Agnes's powers are based off of the DC Comics character Firebrand, specifically, the Danette Reilly version (this isn't even the first time Firebrand-inspired robot actually, as seen by Red Inferno in Young Justice). Added onto this, its also partially inspired by DBZ's Kaio-Ken, what with her power boost and her hair and skin tone changing colors.
Funnily enough, Agnes's original episode, "Mars's First Love", is was most likely the inspiration for the Astro Boy episode that introduced Nyoka, "Astro's First Love".
