Echo has a large ensemble cast, consisting of a main starring cast as well as a substantial supporting cast. Several actors have contracts of up to three seasons, indicating that further seasons are being considered. The following list consists only of characters played by members of the starring cast.
Grace Harper (Nina Dobrev), is a high-standing member of Centerpiece who does a lot of smuggling work due to her being an uncoded citizen. The leader of Centerpiece is Hogan Murdock (Michael Rooker), who is a long-standing target of the EPF. He has a daughter, Paige (Alison Brie), who opposes her father's violent methods. Other primary members of Centerpiece include Michael Rivers (Drew Roy), a sharp-witted scout, dealer and sniper, his girlfriend Alicia York (Eliza Taylor), a paranoid smuggler proficient in close-quarters combat, and Elias Cable (Chris Pratt), the armory master with an extensive knowledge of firearms. Centerpiece is constantly tormented by Dashwood Ricker (Aaron Paul), a broken man surviving on the streets who blames Centerpiece for his situation.
Tobias Holt (Colin Donnell) leads the more peaceful rebel group Stay Human, and uses non-violent methods to spread his message. Tobias is often suported by Adeline McKenzie (Chloë Grace Moretz), a young pacifist with a significant interest in history. Both groups are targeted by the Echo Police Force, led by Darwin Madigan (James Spader), the chauvinistic and brutal chief. The EPF's detective sergeant Katy Copeland (Carla Gugino) is a dangerous and intelligent investigator, and is a threat to most rebel groups.
