|Cranberry, the Forest Musician|
|Romanized Name||Mori no Ongakuka Kuramuberī|
Cranberry, the Forest Musician (森の音楽家クラムベリ) is one of the main protagonists of Magical Girl Raising Project.
She is a recluse living within the forests in the outskirts of N-City.
As a Magical Girl, Cranberry has short, wavy, dirty-blonde hair and salmon-colored eyes.
She has pointed elf ears and her attire has a strong rose motif, with her clothing being adorned by blue and magenta roses; even wearing a blue-rose flower crown. Cranberry wears a button-down dress and a short jacket that has long sleeves and a flared collar that almost resembles a ruff collar. The collar has white and black lace around the edges. She also wears a lacy white choker. To close her jacket, a bell-like button clasps the two sides together.
Her light novel/manga incarnation's legs are wrapped in roses and thorns, while her anime incarnation wears green tights that have a rose and thorny vine print design on them, and she has black heels with a single leaf protruding from the back of them.
Cranberry appears to be quite reserved at first, staying in her cabin, but over time, it is shown that she hungers for fights with strong enemies, even having a sadistic side to her. This darker side of her is shown prominently during her fight with La Pucelle. Despite this dark nature, she is quite formal and even somewhat chivalrous in battle.
To control sound waves
Cranberry's magic allows her to freely manipulate sound. She can generate sound from any location, as well as recreate someone's voice. It's also possible for her to erase sound waves.
She can generate destructive sound waves. By generating explosive sound, she can use it as a shock wave that is powerful enough to destroy a huge object.
As a result of her magic, she has an enhanced hearing, better than that of normal Magical Girls. She can identify sound with very high or low frequency. Also, her hearing allows her to identify the location of objects. If they are living things, she can identify them by their heartbeats. If they are non-living things, she can locate the objects by using sound waves.
Forte - Striking Sound: A shockwave attack that strikes multiple targets at once.
Sforzando - Internal Fracture Sound: A single-target directed soundwave attack.
Fortissimo - Large Explosive Sound: An area-of-effect attack that targets a wide range of enemies. It is strong enough to create a crater on the ground.
Cranberry is Fav's master in Arc 1. Their relationship blossomed when a Demon who had gone berserk, according to Fav, was slain by Cranberry after every other Magical Girl was killed. Cranberry and Fav both shared darker opinions on how the process of testing Magical Girls was boring, and so together in the Arc 1, they orchestrated the free-for-all battling of Magical Girls to make things more interesting under the guise of collecting Candies.
Mao Pam was Cranberry's mentor.
Cranberry was Melville's mentor.
Weiss Winterprison was the first Magical Girl Cranberry directly confronted in Arc 1 in order to fight, hearing that Winterprison was a strong Magical Girl. Cranberry overpowered Winterprison, but Sister Nana's magic gave Winterprison the upper hand in battle, allowing them to escape Cranberry's surprise attack. Cranberry let them escape for the time being. Ever since then, Winterprison has been skeptical of other Magical Girls and the current system they are facing, wondering if Cranberry had anything to do with the grim turn of events.
Marika and Cranberry both attended Mao School, and would fight together for long periods of time. They both referred to it as "the best fight of their lives".
