Akira Sōya (ソウヤ・アキラ Sōya Akira?) is a Dragonaut for the Lindworm Unit. She has a close relationship with her Dragon partner, Machina, whom she believes to be the ideal woman that is the exact opposite of her,[1] and who also acts more like an older sister towards Akira. She was initially afraid of Machina and showed slight jealousy towards her appearance, especially Machina's large breasts, an area which Akira lacks in. She quickly grows fond of her. However, she has always been hesitant to love Machina, as the latter is a Dragon, but after meeting Jin, she realizes that the relationship between Dragon and human can become much more. Due to this, she often helps Jin, even to the point of betraying the Lindworm Unit. However, she still considers its members to be her comrades, and does not let her betrayal get in the way of helping them when need be. She is killed by Garnet.[1]

When she dies in the anime at the hands of Garnet, Machina encases both herself and Akira in ice. Later, they both merge with Thanatos as part of its soul, though they both seem to lose their real identities. At the end of the series, Thanatos leaves Earth in peace and when the Dragonauts are overjoyed that they saved the world, the spirits of Akira and Machina are seen as they smile at each other knowing that humans and dragon can coexist, and with that their spirits flew away.[2]

In the manga, Akira is the newest member of the Dragonauts, being the latest to complete a Resonance. She also expresses a direct liking for Jin, clashing with both Toa and Sieglinde.
