Melville (メルヴィル), also known by her real name Mashiro Kuji (久慈真白), is one of the main protagonists of Magical Girl Raising Project: Restart.
She is part of Team Bell and has a strong accent that makes others difficult to understand her.
As a Magical Girl, Melville has long, light brown/pink orange colored hair, with bangs going in the middle of her face, and the sides of her head has hair that comes down into small curls. She has two ponytails that are split into two sections and are held up by deep violet roses and blackcurrant colored spiky vines wrapping around her hair and the same light brown/pink orange eyebrows.
Her eyes are a more orange color than her hair with darker crossed slit pupils. She has short, orange brown colored eyelashes, a dark blush, elf ears and is paler than other characters.
As for her outfit, Melville has clothes on similar to medieval clothing, with dark beige cloth covering her entire neck, beige shoulder pads, white cloth that leaves her chest open and goes into a triangle shape right before the middle of her stomach. Under that she has a dark purple bra. She has a bright red rose on her left breast, a bright red rose as a ring on her left hand, bone, blackcurrant and dark beige poofy jester pants with white at the bottom and a rodeo dust colored cape with deep violet poof at the end.
On her left thigh, she has blackcurrant spiky vines wrapped around and blackcurrant slips, with a strap that wraps around the lower half of her leg.
At first Melville is shown to be quite calm and collected and more often than not will not involve herself with others however this is all proven to be a façade as by the stories conclusion she is shown to be quite sadistic with little regards for the lives of others. She is described as being exactly like Cranberry whilst also being her own person.
To freely change colors
She can change the color of the surface of any object she touches. She can continuously change the color or change the color to make it assimilate with the surrounding.
It doesn't matter whether the object is living or non-living and the change is done immediately. The duration of the effect can be set by herself, and the magic will last even after she died.
The magic can only be used for disturbing vision only. It's not effective against those who rely on other senses.

Physical Ability: 4/5
Communication Skill: 1/5
Magic Rarity: 3/5
Magic Experience: 5/5
Mental Strength: 4/5
- Melville's name appears to be based on the novelist Herman Melville, best known for writing the novel Moby-Dick. Melville's real name, Mashiro Kuji, likely comes from "white whale" (Shiro = White, Kujira = Whale) further emphasizing the connection to Moby-Dick and references her use of harpoons and pursuit of revenge.
- The fanbook states that Melville is a nomadic traveler who lived in a tribal-like society where she hunted for food with bows. This life in the wilderness explains her accent and difficulty interacting with people.
