The leader of Team Pfle. She is the heiress of the Hitokouji family. She's seen in her wheelchair most of the time but is able to walk just fine. She is intelligent, cunning, and very manipulative. Her strength lies in her mind and ability to adapt to any situation.

The following information contains significant spoiler(s):
In Limited, she works in the top of the Human Resources Division and becomes 7753's boss. She sends instructions to 7753 through 7753's goggles. It was eventually revealed that she was manipulating the events of B-City behind the scenes.
In JOKERS, her house is attacked by people who want to investigate her.
In ACES, she was blackmail by Princess Deluge and loses part of her memory.
In QUEENS, she regains her lost memory and joins the battle to rescue Shadow Gale.


  • Pfle's human form, Kanoe Hitokouji (Manga)
  • Pfle in RESTART
  • Pfle in ACES & QUEENS


As a human, Pfle is described by her grandfather as a beautiful young lady with long blond hair, a hair color he used to have. According to Shadow Gale, Pfle stood out. Her clothing and accessories, regardless of their price, weren’t really too flashy. Her makeup was also thin and elegant. However, she had a gorgeous appearance, like her rolled up hair and her well-organized face.

Magical Girl

As a Magical Girl, Pfle has long blonde hair with purple tips, and ribbons of various colors on it. She has red eyes and a light brown bird-shaped eyepatch on her left eye.

Pfle wears a light pink dress, with a lacy collar. The collar has a small black ribbon on it.

She has a yellow and purple wheelchair with bird decorations on it.


Pfle is a very cunning and smart individual and can be manipulative as well, as she was able to kill 98 Magical Girls by manipulating their minds. She is quite good at forming successful plans.

However, she cares and loves her family and those she considered part of her family including Masked Wonder and Clantail, and is willing to do anything to protect them and puts her trust in them. Shadow Gale describes that as her sole weakness, as she only trusts her family to do right, so she'd never suspect Shadow Gale from being traitorous. When some students started calling Shadow Gale her "lapdog" at school, Pfle became mad and punished those students.

Pfle also hates how the Magical Kingdom government is corrupt and wishes to change it for the better. She has a lot of ambition and puts her plan into action.

Pfle also has a playful side as well and loves to tease Shadow Gale and play pranks on her.

Pfle likes to drink both iced and hot tea, her favorites being red tea and green tea.


Uses a magical wheelchair to race at intense speeds.

She has a personal wheelchair that can run at a very high speed. The maximum speed is faster than the speed of sound, and it's so fast that it would create a shock wave. It also equipped with a bird decoration that can shoot laser rays.

The wheelchair has been modified by Shadow Gale later to equip with better performance. For example, it can automatically move to a destination or automatically attack and defend.

It has also been modified to a Spider Tank. It's a ten-legged tank that has a height of 30 meters. It's protected by layers of metal. Although it supposed to look like a crab-shaped tank, it actually looks more spider-shaped, despite the number of legs. Ten legs are attached to the round torso. Each leg has two joints and the tip is pointed. The legs can endure a Magical Girl's strength. Its eyes can fire laser beams that will explode when they hit the target. However, the Spider Tank has extremely low mobility. The tank also has an escape device, which is a black sphere with a diameter of 2 meters that will be ejected backward from the tank's torso.

Special Item(s)

  • Magical Wheelchair: Pfle's personal vehicle and was upgraded by shadow Gale. It generates shock waves and explosive sounds when traveling. The bird decorations on the wheelchair can fire laser beams from their mouths.
  • Body Parts (Former): In the game of Restart, they're the item dropped from Guard Robot. They can be sold with a high price. They are used for remodeling Pfle's wheelchair.
  • Magical Carpet (Former): A replacement of Pfle's wheelchair in the game. It can withstand about one adult man and run in a speed about as fast as an adult man running.
  • Miracle Coin (Former): An in-game item of Restart. It increases the loot/item drop rate. It's a rare item that can only be obtained through events. She won it in an event and gave it to Masked Wonder.
  • Stun Gun (Former): In-game item of Restart. It's effective against Demon type. Electromagnetic baton type(?).
  • Flamethrower (Former): In-game item of Restart. It's effective against Demon type. It can also burn corpses.
  • Super thermometer (Former): With thermo function, it was remodeled by Shadow Gale.


Shadow Gale

Pfle and Shadow Gale have a master-servant relationship and are childhood friends, but they are much closer than that. Both are willing to die for each other. Kanoe likes to prank Mamori, much to the latter's annoyance.

Masked Wonder

Masked Wonder and Pfle are both on Team Pfle.


Near the end of Restart, Pfle stood up from her wheelchair to faced off against Clantail after Clantail hurt shadow Gale.

After the events of Restart, Clantail and Pfle start to get close.

During Magical Girls of the Holy Night, Pfle asked Clantail to help her pull the sleigh while she disguises as Santa Claus delivering presents to all the Magical Girls attending Shadow Gale's Christmas Party.

Pfle's Grandfather

Pfle shares an exceptionally close bond with him, and her magical girl costume has some elements from her grandfather, such as the eyepatch being a symbol of her grandfather's eye disease.


7753 is Pfle's subordinate. Pfle asked shadow Gale to upgrade 7753's goggles and she gives her commands through the upgraded goggles.


Toko previously works under Pfle.

Pythie Frederica

Pythie Frederica and Pfle are partners.

The First Lapis Lazuline

Both were partners and have been working together prior to the events of QUEENS. Both were secretly developing their own technology to create magical girls. Pfle paid a large sum of money into their project.

The Third Lapis Lazuline

Pfle and Blue Bell Candy get along fairly well and are allies, though Blue Bell tends to think of Pfle as "mysterious". Before Pfle dies, she requested Blue Bell candy to erased her memories from shadow Gale and passed it to Princess Deluge.


Patricia was a mercenary hired by Pfle to protect Shadow Gale.

Princess Deluge

They don't get along very well as Princess Deluge knows she is very manipulative, so she doesn't trust her. Princess Deluge blackmails her by kidnapping Shadow Gale.

Dark Cutie's Team

Pfle assigned Dark Cutie and her team to aid Princess deluge and prevent the return of Premium Sachiko to Puk Puck.

Monoshiri Mi-Chan

During Magical Girls of the Holy Night, Pfle hired Monoshiri Mi-Chan as a security guard at Shadow Gale's Christmas Party.

Snow White

Pfle agrees to save Snow White from Puk's Faction, but only as a second priority.


Pfle respects Fal and can relate to him as they both care for their closest friend/ally (Snow White and Shadow Gale respectively) and would risk their lives for them, despite both being in a master-servant type relationship.


Pfle told her that Shadow Gale has been kidnapped by Puk Puck and ask Mana to recuse her. Mana would later drive to Puk's Manor to investigate.
