She had moles all over, and she was certain her nose pointed too far upward. Her right and left didn't match in shape or size. Her fingertips were thick and round. She was so bowlegged that her legs never touched. No matter how much milk she drank, she was still short. And her eyes could stand stand to be bigger.

Magical Girl

As a Magical Girl, Pechika has short blonde hair with brown tips, and she has a ponytail on the left side of her head, tied up with a tie with a red cross hairclip on it. She also has a white and black chef hat with a red feather on it. Her eyes are clear blue.

She wears a white shawl with black buttons on the front and has a red tie-like scarf around her neck. She has black cuffs and gold buttons on her sleeve. Beneath her shawl she wears a kind of white swimsuit with light yellow trim.

She wears light brown boots with black and red trim at the top, and wears white leggings with a black vertical stripes on each side. Her outfit appears to have a rooster-like tail on the back with a red bow on it.


Pechika is a very shy and timid girl. For the most part, she chose to become a Magical Girl because she thought it would help her boost her confidence.

Her appearance being beautiful, as well as her abilities, gave her more confidence. As a result, she doesn't feel like she can do much as Chika, while she feels like everything will be okay as Pechika.

She dislikes violence, and she would prefer to solve things peacefully. However, she is also capable of fighting, and will be able to fight given the right encouragement.

She is loyal to her team, and always plays the part of caretaker, being the one that cooks food, as well as heals them. She is often quiet when people argue, preferring to stand by the sidelines instead.


To make very delicious cuisine

Pechika's magic allows her to transform anything into food when touched by both of her hands for 5 minutes. Her magic works on anything. Whether it is living or non-living.

The taste, as well as the type of food that she cooks, can be adjusted by Pechika. The only limit to this is that she cannot make food that she has no knowledge of. However, if the target that will be transformed is too large, only part of that target will actually be transformed into food.

As a result of her magic, Pechika has an advanced olfactory sense, as she can use this to detect the target's location.

Special Item(s)
