Genma Saotome Ranma's daddy. While training ranma in Jusenkyo, he fell into the spring of the drowned panda. I'm sure you've figured out how the water things works now. Although he doesnt seem to be much of a father...well, scratch that, he isnt. But anyway, when he was young, he and his training partner, Soun Tendo, made a pact that their children would get married and carry on the dojo. Of course, he made a few other marriage promises in the course of Ranma's life....
Nodoka Saotome Ranma's mom. When Genma first dragged Ranma off to train, he promised her that Ranma would grow up to be a man among men. You can bet she's gonna hold him to that. But, seeing that Ranma turns into a female, they rather fear her. She carries a kitana around with her, and she's pretty good with it. She has no idea who about Ranma. She thinks that female Ranma is Akane's cousin, and Genma the panda is their pet, Mr. Panda.
