Main Characters
Tomoya Okazaki (岡崎 朋也, Okazaki Tomoya)
Voiced by: Kentaro Ito (game), Kenji Nojima (movie), Yuichi Nakamura (anime)

Tomoya is the male protagonist of Clannad. Due to his habit of always arriving late to school, skipping classes during the day, and staying out all night, he has been labeled as a delinquent, or a young person who defies authority. Ever since his mother, Atsuko, died in a car accident when he was young, Tomoya has been living with his father, Naoyuki, with whom he argues constantly. Tomoya was injured during a fight with his father three years ago; since then, their relationship has been very distant. While walking to school, Tomoya met Nagisa Furukawa, since then, his life changed. Nagisa describes him as someone who is mean and bad-mouthed, but actually kind-hearted. This personality he portrays is almost similar to Yuichi Aizawa and Yukito Kunisaki, the protagonists from the previous Key titles Kanon and Air, Hiroyuki Fujita from ToHeart, and Akio Furukawa, Nagisa's father.

Nagisa Furukawa (古河 渚, Furukawa Nagisa)

Tomoya, returning on the first day of school, met her on a long hill path in front of the school. She has a strange habit of muttering the names of food that she plans to eat as a way to motivate herself, such as anpan. She wants to reestablish the once-disbanded theatre club. She does not have much self-confidence so she often needs help in order to motivate herself through the day.
The major arc of the story revolves around Nagisa, who is returning to high school after an extended illness made her repeat her third, and last, year. During this arc, Tomoya befriends Nagisa and learns of her dream of joining the theatre club. They soon discover that the club was disbanded, and has no members anymore. While attempting to recreate the club, Nagisa and Tomoya discover that they cannot advertise for new members, having missed the deadline to do so. In order to create an officially recognized club, they find they need at least three members and a sponsor teacher for the club.
After Story is a continuation of Nagisa's story, where Tomoya works as an electrician, and Nagisa starts living together with Tomoya. Tomoya must face with a lot of hardship dealing with family, the tragedy Nagisa faces and the changes in the town he has to deal with.

She is currently the class representative of her class. She has a pet baby boar named Button (ボタン, Botan) after Japanese food botan-nabe, or wild boar nabe. She even has her own bike, which is known only to Tomoya and her sister, as Kyou doesn't want the news of her having a bike to be known, fearing about getting suspended from school because she is not allowed to drive a bike to school.

Tomoya meets her for the first time when he skips class. He enters the library, and finds Kotomi sitting on the floor barefoot, reading books with scissors in her hand. Tomoya stops her from cutting the book with her scissors, then strangely, Kotomi offers her bento to him, and asks him to come again the next day. When they meet again, Tomoya asks her whether she likes to skip class, which Kotomi agrees. One day, Youhei meets up with Tomoya, and is told that there is a girl who offers free food. Youhei enters the library but he gets ignored. Youhei is surprised that Tomoya knows Kotomi as she is an academic student who got top ten in the nation-wide, and is exempted from lessons.
