It seems like every main character these days has a tragic past of some sort. Hmm Rin from Mnemosyne has kind of a tragic past. She's immortal so she sees many of her loved ones and friends die all the time (except for Mimi since she's immortal too). And she "dies" all the time and has experienced many forms of torture. That's pretty tragic right? (This is my favorito! pic of her <3)
All of the anime characters I was going to post have been publicado already so I'll do manga characters instead!
Dunya-chan & Isaac-kun from Magi - The Labyrinth of Magic have a very tragic past. :'(
Dunya is the former princess of the Mustashim kingdom while Isaac is her knight. 10 years prior to the story, her kingdom was taken over por magic users known as Magnoshutatt who called for the execution of the royal family. She watched as many of her family members and loved ones were brutally slaughtered. Isaac did his best to transport the young princess over the border to safety but luck wasn't on their side. They were caught por the magic users and some of the former royal knights who had changed sides just to save their butts. Dunya watched as they brutally killed Isaac.
At first the two had an older brother-younger sister relationship. But overtime they slowly developed romantic feelings for each other. The two knew that they could never be together from the start because Dunya was soon to be wed to a neighboring archduke. *cries* ;A;
I choose Nakamura Yuri because when she was alive she has a 3 siblings 2 girls and one boy and her family was a rich family and one día they have work to do so they went to other place suddenly the robbers came in and as the oldest Yuri think is her job to protect the younger one . The robbers were after their valuables and ask Yuri to bring them and they say they will kill her siblings every 5 minutos and in the end she found a vase but it is to heavy but she is determine to bring it and suddenly she fell down the stairs and after some time the police came and she was the only one left
His parents were Vampire Hunters and him and his twin brother, Ichiru, were being groomed to become Vampire Hunters when they were older as well. His parents had recently killed a Level E Vampire (A Human turned Vampire that eventually goes insane) and the Vampire's mate, an extremely powerful Pure Blood Vampire (The highest ranking and most powerful class of Vampire's) sought revenge on them. She killed Zero's parents, took his brother captive, and bit him. Only Pure Blood Vampire's have the ability to turn humans into Vampire's, but as I stated before, they always dwindle into Level E and become insane. So she bit him to give him something worse than death to him, becoming a vampire and knowing he will eventually completely lose his mind.
Lucy from Elfen Lied she was an orphan her only friend betrayed her, her perrito, cachorro was killed, she though that the boy she liked betrayed her also, she was locked for years hated and tortured por her memories.
Alice Baskerville Alice was conceived por Lacie and born in the Abyss as a human 100 years hace along with her twin sister The Will of the Abyss. She was locked up in a tower por Glen (Oswald) and excluded from the rest of the world because Glen felt it was his responsibility to take care of her. One día Jack Vessalius returned to the tower on the Baskervilles grounds with Revis and met Alice. The two of them became friends and Jack would often visit Alice to play with her. One day, Jack brought Gilbert and Vincent with him to meet Alice, though it didn't go over well as Alice immediately made fun of Vincent's red eye for bringing misfortune, this caused Gil to get mad at Alice and then pull her hair. This made Vincent hate Alice, not because of what she dicho about his eye, but because she upset Gil, and made Jack regret his choice. One day, he delivered Alice her cat with the eyes cut out, making Jack worry. During Jack's many visits, he would notice something off about Alice. Seemingly, every other día she'd switch personalities, being light and happy one day, the Will, and dark and sinister the next. This also troubled Jack. Then one day, Glen took Gilbert from Jack because 100 years had passed since he inhabited a new body, and so he needed a new one. Jack couldn't change Glen's mind, and initially made Glen recall Lacie, making him threaten Jack if he did not leave. Alice had heard from Jack that Gil was taken por Glen and was going to be killed and reinhabited por Glen; she told Vincent of this one día while he was frantically searching for his older brother. Vincent managed to stop the Ceremony before Glen could transfer Raven into Gil's body and before Gil could be killed, meaning that Glen's 100 año old body would die. Soon after The Tragedy of Sablier broke out for reasons still unclear. Alice was murdered during the Tragedy of Sablier, but no one knows who killed her, although it is hinted that Vincent Nightray was the culprit. But after she was killed as a human she and the Will of the Abyss broke their connection with the human-world when they used Alice's body to switch souls every day. The other Alice, known as B-Rabbit, came to the Abyss but not to The Will of the Abyss, the Core. Instead, she came to the lower level where chains and illegal contractors came. After a while in the Abyss, as tu know people turn into chains and Alice turned into B-Rabbit o rather, merged with B-Rabbit as B-Rabbit existed 100 years prior as a separate being.
As a Chain Alice apparently had numerous Contractors throughout the siguiente century, but sooner o later she slaughtered them and returned to the Abyss, it is unknown why she did so. However, in the first episodes in the anime, it is revealed that Alice has never contracted anyone before meeting Oz. Alice was in the Abyss when she heard the melody of the Pocket Watch after Oz Vessalius opens it and feels as though someone is calling out to her.
Orihime inoue, her parents abused her and called her names and treated her like the worst piece of garbage....until she was about I think 13 o 14 and her brother took her away, then he died and left her all alone o-o which is why she is how she is now.

Her parents were always fighting she had to hear that almost every minuto of the día and she had nowhere else to go and then once they were out of the ordinary violent and ended up hurting her o something like that and then one día she came across a band and she felt like they were canto about her and how she felt...
Mikaru from Mermaid Melody. (manga part) Her mother died after she was born. Her body started rejecting her own blood. (anime+manga part) In order to save her, her father gave his life to revive Michel. They would complement each other, and form a new race. However, they would not fuse for some reason o another, and "ended up in their tragical situation" (citate xD). (anime part) Her doctor tried to make her take medicine, but her brother, Rihito, refused. In the end, she took it, resulting in her having breathing problems. She had to stay at home, and her friends stopped seeing her one por one. She was all alone. (anime non-flashback part) She saved Kaito in Hawai, fell in amor with him, and because Kaito lost his memories he fell in amor with her too, even though it was just a brotherly love. She fainted now and then, and had headaches. Kaito took care of her. Kaito parted from her after regaining his memories, resulting in Michel going berserk. He and Michal joined together, this time (almost) succesful. She was still conscious, and left with Michel when he found his happiness.
