: Also known as "Migaratory bird","Swallow",or"Tsubame"
Here is info about her :When first introduced in the manga, she works at a store called Mamurasaki Sports. Although part time, she quits later on to dedicate time to her team. This fact is not mentioned in the anime. Simca's intent is to gather all the Kings, and their Regalia, for the purpose of conquering the Trophaeum tower, and acquiring the Sky Regalia. She's taken great interest in Ikki, whom she believes is destined to one day become the legendary Sky King, and who has practically idolized her since watching her ride AT through his neighborhood. Despite protests, she convinces Ikki to take Genesis under his leadership after Kogarasumaru's triumph over Behemoth, and her interactions with Ikki eventually draws the ire of the new Sleeping Forest team, led by Ringo. She also appears to have a somewhat, though romantic interest in Ikki, and is not afraid to strip all of her clothes in front of him, and offer to scrub his back in the bath, let him sleep with his face in her bosom and also let him fondle her breasts. Though Ikki has no objections, and appears to have a small crush on Simca, it is Ringo who always stops Simca from getting out of hand. These actions are not so persistent, and after the defeat of Behemoth, her character takes a dramatic change. Simca, in later chapters, had her hair cut short. Her most recent appearance was on board Nike's ship, where he aggressively expresses his sexual attraction to her, and she plays along, although she prays for Kogarasumaru's safety soon after. Simca was one of the first-generation Gravity Children, along with Spitfire, Kilik, Sora and others. It is later revealed that Simca, under Makigami Ine's wing, was one of the founding members of Tool Toul To when the original Sleeping Forest was still around; and apparently held an exceptional amount of talent as a Tuner. She witnessed the aftermath of Takeuchi Sora, the original Wind King and candidate for the Sky King title, being betrayed by Kilik, the former Gem King, and her twin brother. She is currently bound to a wheelchair due to injuries sustained from Om's "Bubblegum Crisis" attack. But that is proven to be only temporary, as revealed by Ringo, just long enough to keep Simca out of harm's way. In the extras of Air Gear Volume 3, the author shows that Simca had a much different character design which consisted of a tanktop, long arm gloves and pants and different shaped goggles, before her final image.
2. RINGO NOYAMANO
: looks like your everyday junior high school girl. However, she is actually the successor of the legendary Storm Riders team, Sleeping Forest . She is also the current Thorn King (Queen) of the eight 'Kings' in the AT world. Ringo is in love with Ikki but does not dare to tell him. She helps Kogarasumaru in times of trouble under the guise of Croissant Mask (Croissant Kamen). Ringo is a King Class AT user, wielding the techniques of Sonia Road; meaning she has superhuman agility at the price of suffering every blow she deals to her opponent.
She is determined to show Ikki the "fear" of flying through the air because she doesn't want to see him suffer the same fate the last 'Wind King' did. To this end she was willing to bar his way, even going so far as to brutally attack him using her 'Thorn Regalia'. She completely out-classes Ikki due to her superior experience (specifically, that each of her moves wastes and requires much less energy than Ikki's do) during the race and in the earlier stages of the battle. However, Kururu Sumeragi saves the latter with a mid-air installation of the Bagram prototype cores. Ikki then becomes more than a match for Ringo. The fight then ends in a draw when Ringo surprisingly collapses a few feet from the finish line. She is then carried back home. After that battle Ikki leaves the Noyamano residence, but not before Ringo finally reveals her feelings for Ikki and kisses him goodbye. Later in the Tower of Tropheum, Killik reveals the true purpose of Ringo as leader of Sleeping Forest. In the final battle for the Sky King that takes place where not only the air is incredibly dense but the atmosphere is also giving off the feeling of crushing anyone in it, Ringo is completely immune to it, thus making her the perfect warrior to protect the Sky Regalia.
Ringo often depicted to be a warrior in an armor, with a shield and blade, and a pair of wings made out of blades. At this point in her introduction, she is usually in the middle of a forest with dead bodies sprawled around her. Her introduction stays the same throughout the manga: "The Fruit of the Forbidden Forest Which Lures One into a Deep Slumber... Crazy Apple." (A play on her name since "Ringo" means apple in Japanese.)
Ringo (along with Mikan and Ume) are not biological sisters of Rika. A year or so after the creation of the original Sleeping Forest, it was revealed by Kilik that three unknown "gravity children" are staying with Rika, implying that the research for Air Treck is still going on somewhere else. In chapter 174, Ringo is seen watching Kogarasumaru training for their B-Class match against White Wolf clan, then she sees Hako talking to a mysterious girl that was seen with the Sora brothers on chapter 163.
3. SUMERAGI KURURU
: is keen on becoming Ikki's Tuner. Although initially shy around Ikki she becomes devoted to him after witnessing his anger over Simca's attack. She is also the active Pledge King/Queen. With new determination she managed to rebuild the 'Wind Regalia', but the strain caused by Ikki's battle with Ringo caused the untuned core wheels to shatter. It is later learned that another member of TTT named Hako, who was jealous that Kururu was Ikki's Tuner, had switched the Kururu's rebuilt cores with the cores of her own. Eventually the rebuilt cores were returned but shortly afterwards were stolen by Nike, who later delivered it to Sora. In chapter 145, it is revealed that she has feelings for Ikki. As of chapter 170, Kururu is officially the leader of Tool Toul To and the new Pledge Queen. She has decided to help her father's team in order to help Kogarasumaru with their training. 5 hours prior to Kogarasumaru's match she finds Hako on the streets who greets her while hiding a taser gun behind her back. After a failed attempt to taser Kururu, Hako pulls out a knife to scare Kururu but accidentally cuts her hand. Kururu asks Hako to help her during the upcoming match. During Kogarasumaru's counter attack, Kururu, Hako and members of Tool Toul To appear at the end of the 2nd phase and activate the Pledge Regalia. Even though she's helping the other team, her real intention is to awaken Ikki's hidden strength as the Storm King. During the 3rd phase, Ikki finally acknowledges that he will need more than his own strength to succeed and asks Kururu to help him build the Storm Regalia.
