An Orphnoch (オルフェノク Orufenoku) is a human evolutionary stage and the main cause of conflict in the 2003 Kamen Rider Series Kamen Rider Faiz. The Orphnoch are supposed to be the next stage in human evolution. They are stronger, tougher, and faster, with various other special abilities. The term Orphnoch is the combination of the names of the Greek mythological figure Orpheus and the biblical figure Enoch.
There are two types of Orphnochs in the most of series: the Original Orphnochs who are "born" when a certain human suffers a death and 'resurrected' into an Orphnoch and Sired Orphnochs that are created when certain humans survive being attacked by an Orphnoch and become ones themselves, though weaker than the Original Orphnochs. But the most unique of type that appear in the series finale are the Evolved Orphnochs, the first of this type is the Orphnoch King, which are genetically perfect to the point of being unable to resume human form. An Orphnoch King can remove the genetic flaw from other Orphnochs, evolving them as well at the cost of their humanity.
All Orphnochs have their senses enhanced to a superhuman level, able to hear, smell or see great distances, tuning out background noise to focus on their target. They can also regenerate an ability as well as a first sense when the Orphnoch survived its human death, with the regenerating abilities depending on the Orphnoch in question. The stronger Orphnochs may fire energy blasts from their hands, though used a surprise attack due to its attack speed being slow and inaccurate for long distance attacks. But the Orphnochs' greatest ability is to 'siring' other Orphnochs (similar to Vampires or Werewolves) by attacking humans and (usually) stabbing them through the heart. This has a very low success rate, and usually results in disintegrating the human in question. Some Orphnochs seem to be capable of using long, skin piercing tentacles specifically for siring others. However, most cases of siring occur when the "sirer" is in Orphnoch form.
Every Orphnoch can interchange between their original human form and a unique Orphnoch form, light grey in colour with characteristics of either a plant or an animal with a body armour resistant to standard small firearms blasts and its strength varies wildly among Orphnochs as good measure of one's power. Only more powerful conventional weaponry can penetrate the body armour and harm or even kill some Orphnochs, while others can withstand even the basic attacks of the Rider Gears. Orphnochs can also generate signature weapons from their bodies. While in Orphnoch form, some of their kind can assume a Hybrid Form, becoming more creature-like in form. Few Orphnochs can assume a Secondary Form, increasing their standard Orphnoch form abilities at the cost of losing self-control. An Orphnoch can change their shadow into a hologram of their human form.
It is shown that Orphnochs heal their wounds recover quickly; Orphnochs can be seen injured when (a) small blue flame(s) burst(s) from their wound. Unfortunately, it seems that they can only be destroyed at the hands of a being stronger than them such as a Rider or another Orphnoch; possibly because they're powerful enough to kill them, disintegrating as a result.
Former chief of Smart Brain, Hanagata, learned a revelation that only few Orphnoch know of, that "human body cannot stand such a rapid evolution", and that as such, they were doomed to die of inevitable break down and disintegration within any number of years of becoming an Orphnoch depending on their transformation into and out of Orphnoch form or use of the Rider Gears, which takes an amount of time from that person's lifespan. Others, however, have exhibited signs of early disintegration (the process starts with the skin turning grey, and slightly ash-like, before their entire body is destroyed) but subsequently showed a recovery. The only known solution to this problem is the Orphnoch King, who can "complete" Orphnochs' evolution, apparently forcing them to remain in Orphnoch form, but granting long life and a higher level of power.
It was also shown that those who have Orphnoch DNA injected in them can also use the Rider Gears, although they will eventually run out of said DNA after using said Gears depending on how much they were injected with.
In Paradise Lost, although the Orphnoch King is not seen or mentioned, Orphnochs no longer seem to suffer a limited lifespan while somehow retaining their human looks.
World of Faiz
The Orphnoch also exist in the A.R. World of Faiz, where they are fought by the alternate Kamen Rider Faiz, Takumi Ogami. Similar to the originals, they are humans who have entered the next stage in evolution, possessing heightened physical and other various special abilities. Several Orphnoch appear in the first episode where Decade assumes Faiz's form to fight them off. They include the Octopus, Okra, Pigeon, Dolphin and Rhinoceros Beetle Orphnoch.
- Momose (百瀬) is a student of Smart Brain High who is a member of Lucky Clover (ラッキークローバー Rakkī Kurōbā): a group of top-ranked students who are actually Orphnoch. Momose's true form is that of the Tiger Orphnoch (タイガーオルフェノク Taigā Orufenoku), possessing the power to revive Orphnochs on the verge of death. After learning the truth behind Faiz, Momose decides to take over the school and sire new Orphnoch from the student body. However, the Riders intervene and the Tiger Orphnoch is destroyed by Decade's Decade Photon. Momose is portrayed by Ryosuke Miura (三浦 涼介 Miura Ryōsuke). He previously portrayed the Beetle Sazer/Kane Lucano in Chousei Kantai Sazer-X and would later play Shingo Izumi and the human form of Ankh in Kamen Rider OOO.
- Butterfly Orphnoch (バタフライオルフェノク Batafurai Orufenoku, 10): Unable to become a student at Smart Brain High, she attacks a security officer until Faiz arrives and destroys her with his Sparkle Cut attack. The Butterfly Orphnoch is portrayed by Riho Okada (岡田 里穂 Okada Riho).
- Shukawa/Lobster Orphnoch (朱川／ロブスターオルフェノク Shukawa/Robusutā Orufenoku, 10 & 11): The only female member of Lucky Clover. Though she is resurrected by the Tiger Orphnoch, she meets her end against Decade's Decade Photon. Shukawa is portrayed by Ayasa Hanagata (花形 綾沙 Hanagata Ayasa).
- Genda/Dragon Orphnoch (玄田／ドラゴンオルフェノク Genda/Doragon Orufenoku, 10 & 11): A jock member of Lucky Clover who is destroyed by Decade as Blade until the Tiger Orphnoch arrives and resurrects him into his muscular Majin Form. He is destroyed for good by Decade's Decade Photon. Genda is portrayed by CHIKARA.
- Shirogane/Centipede Orphnoch (城金／センチピードオルフェノク Shirogane/Senchipīdo Orufenoku, 10): A booksmart member of Lucky Clover who is destroyed by Diend's Dimension Shot while attempting to steal the Faiz Driver. Shirogane is portrayed by Takuya Nagaoka (永岡 卓也 Nagaoka Takuya).
As one of the races of the Nine Worlds, the Orphnoch are part of the Dai-Shocker alliance, a coalition of all villain organizations fought by the Kamen Riders, who have ambitions to conquer the multiverse.
The Butterfly, Giraffe, Longhorn, Slug, Wild Boar, Pelican, Stinkbug, and Arch Orphnoch, were part of the Dai-Shocker army that was fought and wiped out by a gathering of 25 Kamen Riders in the World of Decade after Dai-Shocker started their invasion of the worlds.
The Orphnoch were among the various evil organizations and monster races which were allied with Shocker in an alternate timeline where they conquered the world thanks to the Shocker Greeed. The Lobster, Elephant, Stag Beetle and Octopus Orphnoch were among Shocker's army of monsters. When all the Kamen Riders came back in 2011, Faiz returned and defeated the Orphnoch allied with Shocker.
Orphnoch Armadillo and Rhinoceros Beetle under the Arch Orphnoch were part of the revived Dai-Shocker assembled by Decade to wipe out the Super Sentai, ensuring the survival of the Kamen Riders. After Dai-Shocker's alliance with Dai-Zangyack was revealed, both organizations were wiped out by a gathering of Kamen Riders and Super Sentai.
An Arch Orphnoch was a member of Space Shocker, an evil amalgamation organization similar to Dai-Shocker, which aimed to conquer the universe. It was actually a front for the revival of the Space Crime Syndicate Madou.
World within the Magic Stone
The souls of defeated Orphnoch, among the other monster races fought by the Kamen Riders, surfaced in the world within the Magic Stone which was ruled by the evil wizard Amadum. Amadum's army of monsters were fought and destroyed by the 15 Heisei Riders when they were summoned to this world.
Underground Empire Badan
Super Hero Taisen GP
In an alternate timeline created by Shocker's History Modifying Machine enacting an assassination of the Double Riders by Kamen Rider 3 in 1973, at least one Orphnoch, the Lobster Orphnoch, was among the many monsters that served the evil organization which ruled the world in this timeline. During the final battle against the Kamen Riders, the Lobster Orphnoch was destroyed by Kamen Rider Faiz.
The Orphnoch King is of a special type who possesses the power to "complete" Orphnochs' evolution, removing all traces of humanity in the process while granting long life. Unlike others, the Orphnoch King can disintegrate them instantly. The Rider Gears were originally created to protect the Orphnoch King.
Teruo Suzuki/Arch Orphnoch (Grasshopper) (鈴木 照男/アークオルフェノク, Suzuki Teruo, Āku Orufenoku): (32-50): An anti-social young boy who was orphaned when his parents died in a fire caused by the Barnacle Orphnoch. Teruo was placed in the Sousai Children's Home (創才児童園, Sōsai Jidōen) orphanage run by Smart Brain until Kaido took him to his home and later stayed and lived in Keitarō's laundry mat. By episode 45, Teruo began to act strangely and was eventually revealed to be the Orphnoch King in Episode 47. Whenever Teruo blacks out, the Orphnoch persona emerges from his shadow to consume the lifeforce of Orphnochs, in which to fully mature. After being taken by Kiba in episode 50, Teruo eventually transformed completely into the Arch Orphnoch. Fully awakened, the Arch Orphnoch fully evolved Saeko after beating Faiz. It took Yuji's sacrifice and Faiz Blaster Form's Blaster Crimson Smash to defeat the Arch Orphnoch. But Arch Orphnoch barely survived and was mortally wounded, placed in the stasis tank under Smart Brain by Saeko.
Renegades are Orphnochs that not aligned with Smart Brain, and each follow their own agenda. Most Renegades wish to continue with their normal human lives, thus they are branded as traitors that deserve death. Some use their new found powers to kill people who have wronged them (in real or imaginary ways), while others fight to protect humans.
- Hanagata/Goat Orphnoch (花形/ゴートオルフェノク, Hanagata/Gōto Orufenoku, 1-48): The foster father of the Ryuusei School students and former chief of Smart Brain, Hanagata was intent to find the Orphnoch King. He is also responsible for creating the three Rider belts and the six Riotrooper belts. The origin of his Orphnoch nature remains untold in the TV series, however it assumed that he is perhaps a 'natural' Orphnoch due to his great speed and strength (that surpasses even the Dragon Orphnoch). He disappeared under Smart Brain HQ upon learning the fatal nature of humans' rapid evolution into Orphnochs, stealing the Rider Gears and entrusting them to his surviving students. Before he died from his rapid evolution, Hanagata returned to Smart Brain to strip Murakami of his duties and appointed Kiba, unaware of his descent into madness, as the permanent head of the company to fulfill his final request: to terminate the Orphnoch King.
- Takumi Inui/Wolf Orphnoch (乾 巧/ウルフオルフェノク, Inui Takumi/Urufu Orufenoku): A long time 'natural' Orphnoch who has hidden his Orphnoch nature since a fire accident during his boyhood and is currently Kamen Rider Faiz. Revealed his true form in Episode 34 and the alternate "Paradise Lost" ending as well as appearing in the Ryuusei School reunion in the series. Seems to be stronger than a normal Orphnoch as shown in the series. Survived in both endings. It should be noted that the Kamen Rider 555: Paradise Lost version of Wolf Orphnoch's design has a pair of more wolf-like animalistic legs as opposed to the Orphnoch-humanoid legs in the TV series. Its speed and agility appear to be greater in the PL version as well.
- Shigehisa Aoki/Dolphin Orphnoch (青木 茂久/ドルフィンオルフェノク, Aoki Shigehisa/Dorufin Orufenoku) (20 & 21) - Survived, Takumi & Yuji's boss at a pizza parlor; was forced by Smart Brain to kill humans. He was defeated by Faiz but was spared, told to remain living as a human. He was not seen again following this incident.
- Crab Orphnoch (クラブオルフェノク, Kurabu Orufenoku) (41 & 42): A experimental guinea pig used by human scientists until he heard Osada's scream and broke out of confinement to free Osada. He had no interest in fighting the humans who held him prisoner and simply ran for life after giving Osada to Kiba. Despite Faiz's interference to save him from Kaixa and Delta, the Crab suffered genetic breakdown and died.
- Main article: Yuji Kiba
Yuka Osada (長田 結花, 4-44) is a teenage girl whose desire is to go to a place where there is no fighting. Originally a normal human, Yuka was bullied terribly by her younger half-sister Michiko, and other girls in her school's female basketball team. The abuse worsen as Yuka's parents favoured Michiko over her, with only her messaging to Keitaro keeping her happy. However, the extreme emotional stress Yuka suffered from caused her to fall down the snow covered stairs, killing her and thus being reborn as the Crane Orphnoch (クレインオルフェノク, Kurein Orufenoku). Though she attempted to use her power to help, it backfired when Michiko had her as a scapegoat for her injury and having Yuka kicked out of the family as a result. But when the mistreatment got worse after the school basketball team teased her for the last time, Yuka finally "snapped" and single-handedly slaughtered the entire girls basketball team, including her sister. Horrified of her actions, she runs out of the school, disgraced, and soon meets Kiba, who joins her in learning of their new-found existence. Though she agrees with Kiba's ideals of protecting humans, Yuka occasionally kills humans who seem bad (bullies, etc.) on reflex without others knowing, a habit that would eventually gain interest by Lucky Clover. She exchanged e-mails with Keitarou to a lesser extent after becoming an Orphnoch, as she later developed a strong crush on Kaidō, though he did not reciprocate. Eventually she and Keitarou come to realize who the other was, and they had a brief relationship before she was weakened by police's shots and killed by Saeko when Osada was unable to assume Orphnoch form. Her death became the final straw for Yuji to turn his back on humans. In the Paradise Lost ending, Yuka was impaled by the Elasmotherium Orphnoch.
- SPECIAL NOTE- the movie PL version of Crane Orphnoch's design is also dramatically different than that of the TV series. The shape of the crane head design has a more feminine look as the face is more human-like. Her winged collars are also extended and protruding upward in a flying pose. One more significant change is the addition of crane-like legs that appear in place of the original Orphnoch-humanoid legs during Crane Orphnoch's flight.
- Main article: Naoya Kaido
A company that is a front for a group of Orphnochs that sees themselves as the master race and are dedicated to the genocide of the human race and increase of the Orphnoch population. They experiment in making their race even more powerful and developing weapons that only Orphnochs can use. This is the largest coordinated group of Orphnochs ever seen, and in the movie Paradise Lost they seem to have formed a de-facto world government after the Orphnoch Revolution.
- Kyoji Murakami/Rose Orphnoch (村上 峡児/ローズオルフェノク, Murakami Kyōji/Rōzu Orufenoku) (9-47): The temporary president of Smart Brain after Eiichi Toda's death. Murakami was the one who assigned Lucky Clover to do his dirty work until Hanagata took back the company and gave control to Yūji Kiba. Despite losing his place in Smart Brain, Murakami had a trump card in the Orphnoch King, whom he had waited for and learn of his human host. To that end, Murakami attempted to abduct Teruo, fighting the Riders on his own and barely escaped their attacks. In his weakened state, Murakami offered his life to Teruo to awaken the Arch Orphnoch so he can correct the Orphnoch's genetic instability.
- In the alternate conclusion shown in the movie, Murakami was somehow decapitated and his head is kept alive in a tank until it was smashed by Smart Lady under orders for his failure in the end. He never had the chance to turn into a 'Rose Head' Orphnoch, dying with a loud scream.
- Smart Lady (スマート レディ, Sumāto Redī): Smart Brain's "mascot", she works closely under the company's chief and helps fledgling Orphnochs. She never exhibits Orphnoch powers in the series, and her species is left ambiguous despite her association with morpho butterflies. She acts friendly and playful towards the many workers at Smart Brain, although she doesn't realize that no one enjoys her company.
- Eiichi Toda/Squid Orphnoch (戸田 英一/スクィッドオルフェノク, Toda Eiichi/Sukuiddo Orufenoku) (5): The temp head of Smart Brain, Toda uses a staff that he uses to Sire and can move in a blink of an eye. Originally tracking down the Faiz Gear until it came to Tokyo, Toda was reasigned by Smart Lady to educate Yuji and Yuka in the nature of Orphnochs. After the two refused to Sire, Toda goes on siring rampage starting with Kaido until he sees Takumi and Mari. After chasing them down, Toda is fatally injured by Faiz's Crimson Smash, dying after telling Kiba and Yuka their final lesson.
An elite quartet of Orphnochs within Smart Brain who are "cream of the crop"; in other words, elite assassins, and answer to the Chief. Only two of the original four survived with one of said survivor (as well as one more member) regaining their humanity in the end.
- Kitazaki/Dragon Orphnoch (北崎/オラゴンオルフェノク, Kitazaki/Doragon Orufenoku, 28-49): The most powerful and youngest of the Lucky Clover group, referring to himself as the "strongest lifeform", he is able to turn anything he touches into ash. This talent also made Kitazaki withdrawn from society and have a childish outlook on others' suffering as fun. He was the one who brutally murdered all members of the Ryūsei School. Upon making his presence known, Kitazaki used the Delta Belt until he tired of it and gave it to Sawada. Kitazaki had a flawless victory streak until he battled Takumi as Faiz and suffered his first loss, driving him more insane. By 49, Kitazaki was intent on killing Teruo to prove his superiority, with Saeko and Takuma forced to fight him to protect the boy. In the end, a very weakened Kitazaki was killed by the Arch Orphnoch before the monster ripped his face off and ate it.
- Saeko Kageyama/Lobster Orphnoch (影山 冴子/ロブスターオルフェノク, Kageyama Saeko/Robusutā Orufenoku, 11-50): The calmest of the group, she works as the proprietor of the Clover Bar. Her calling call to her victim is to send them a bottle of wine, as their final drink. She enjoys seeing others suffer and comforts them in a somewhat disturbing fashion. Upon learning of the breakdown and the Orpenoch King's power, Saeko was intent to survive. Saeko succeeded by allowing the Arch Orphnoch to completely evolve her (Turning her into a permanent Orphnoch making her unable to turn back to human.) and thus became his caretaker after he was left close to death after his defeat by Faiz.
- Itsuro Takuma/Centipede Orphnoch (琢磨 逸郎/センチピードオルフェノク, Takuma Itsurō/Senchipīdo Orufenoku, 11-50): A prideful man who enjoys reading poetry. Though he acts calm, Takuma was very much fearful of Kitazaki most of the time, acting tough whenever Kitazaki is not around or is too injured to fight back. His repeated defeats during the series costed him a great deal of stability in Lucky Clover, becoming a whipping boy for Kitzaki to pick on. Eventually, after seeing the Arch Orphnoch kill Kitazaki and later evolve Saeko, Takuma ran off during the final battle and decided to join human society as a construction worker.
- Mr. J/Crocodile Orphnoch (ミスター ジェイ/クロコダイルオルフェノク, Misutā Jei/Kurokodairu Orufenoku, 11-19): A black man who spoke perfect Japanese, he usually seen with his pet dog, Chaco. He has three lives, though was able to regenerate from attacks that would kill normal Orphnochs. After being killed by Kamen Rider Kaixa's Xeno Clash twice, Mr. J was reluctant to continue his pursuit on Faiz until Murakami threatened him with being named a traitor and what would come of Chaco if he didn't complete his mission. Though J was finally killed by Faiz's Grand Impact, Chaco ended up in the care of Keiko Kurata.
- Aki Sawada/Spider Orphnoch (澤田 亜希/スパイダーオルフェノク, Sawada Aki/Supaidā Orufenoku, 26-40): Formerly of the Ryūsei School, he was mortally wounded by Kitazaki on the night of the school reunion and soon revived in Smart Brain experiment as an Orphnoch. Before his change, Sawada was a kind-hearted figure as Mari remembered him. Turning his back on his former friends and humanity, Sawada murdered Saya to get the Delta Gear in order to become the new member of Lucky Clover. He has a habit of crafting animal origami and lighting them on fire just before going on a killing spree while listening to rap music, with the flame dying out the same time Sawada killed the last person. He was eventually branded a traitor by Murakami for giving the Delta Belt to the surviving Ryūsei Students, before going after them one by one. No longer a member of Lucky Clover as he still had a shred of humanity left in him, Sawada was seeming killed by Takumi upon revealing his Orphnoch form. But Sawada survived and begins to regain a bit more of his humanity, eventually beginning to feel the breakdown while taking Takumi's place in fighting the other Lucky Clover members, sustaining injuries from fighting all three of them and being hit by Kaixa's Gold Smash. Sawada eventually crawled out of the battlefield and saw Mari and Takumi one last time as he told them his true feelings before dying, thus convincing Takumi to fight as Faiz to save humanity.
- Hiroshi Izawa/Stingfish Orphnoch (井沢 博司/スティングフィッシュオルフェノク, Izawa Hiroshi/Sutingufisshu Orufenoku, 1): Able to assume a merman-ish form, Hiroshi is sent to retrieve the Faiz Gear, posing as a traveler while killing off his two traveling companions before going after Mari to accomplish his mission.
