|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, dirty-blonde hair with front strands that are wavy and salmon-red coloured eyes.
She has pointed elf ears and her attire has a strong rose motif, with her clothing being adorned by dark blue- magenta roses around her head with vines and leaves; even wearing a blue-magenta rose flower crown with dark green leaves . Cranberry wears a button-down white dress and a short dark green jacket that has long sleeves and a flared collar that almost resembles a ruff collar with a white stripe in the middle.
She has white cuffs with 2 black stripes at the ends of her cuffs. In the middle, it has a black flower design in the middle with white outlines.
The collar is frilly, and wears a white choker with laces. To close her jacket, a golden bell-like button clasps the two sides together.
Her light novel/manga incarnation's legs are wrapped in red roses and thorns around her right thigh and at the back and wears white tights, while her anime incarnation wears pale green tights that have a red rose and thorny vine print design on her right thigh. She wears black high 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.

- Lucky Rabbit's Foot (Former): A Magical Item that grants good luck to the owner when they're in a pinch. However, it's quite unclear as to how it will manifest.
- 4-Dimensional Bag (Former)'': A Magical Item that allows you to store a variety of items, regardless of size. The bag itself is small and portable, but its contents are large.
- Invisibility Cloak (Former): Magical item. A cloak that can erase appearance and smell. However, sound and heart movement are ineffaceable.
- Healing Medicine (Former): Magical item. It strengthens the ability of those who take it.
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".
