They're the main antagonists of Volume 4 through Volume 6, and the main foils of Berolina Gremory's peerage.
Adopted by the mad scientist Enma Miyama, five orphans plus his own son would undergo painful, monstrous experiments on holy and demonic powers in order to adquire both their Sacred Gears and enough resistence in order to be the first generation of human soldiers for his master plan of killing every single religious and magical entity in the universe. One day, however, the five survivors escaped their maniacal incarceration, and after some time, adopted by different families, thus also adquiring different names and enrolling in different schools. One day, one of Enma's creation brought them together once again and sought to bring them back to his lair, activating their sacred gears for the first time. Since them, the group was bring together to achieve one single goal: Find and kill Enma Miyama.
After the events of Volume 6 that almost brought their own Downfall, the group settled down in Kuoh city, still planning their revenge under Gremory's custody, their leader shell-shocked and with a new member with them, the key to find Enma's location.
The group is composed by five students, four girls and a boy, and a small child after the events of Volume 6. They all treated themselves as family and share the proper honorifics with each other.

After his defeat and the loss of both his arms, however, he remains shell-shocked in a small comdo somewhere in Kuoh, the new Miyama residence. Being the son of a Seraph-level angel, Rei can use his holy powers to create Light weapons, also enabling him to use his Sacred Gear's balance Breaker for extended periods of time.
