Her temper is so bad that in the past, the Daifugo card game had to be banned because she would throw a tantrum.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Kana[edit | edit source]
Mepis and Kana are in the same class group and are members of the Caspar's Faction. At first, Mepis was actually kind of excited at the prospect of a convict from Magical Girl Prison transferring to her school and wanted to fight her. Unfortunately, Kana turned out to be an extremely socially awkward girl, causing Mepis to quickly lose interest in her and just see her as annoying. However, their relationship made a huge turnaround when Kana expressed interest in Manga, causing Mepis to quickly open up to her and get her hooked.
They're both members of the Caspar's Faction.
Mepis first met Halna when she asked her to let Kana stay over at her house. Mepis initially refused and cursed at her, though her disrespectful attitude quickly disappeared following the revelation that she was the school principal. Halna then changed her request into an order and forced Mepis to let Kana stay over as punishment.
