Appearance[edit | edit source]

Human[edit | edit source]

As a human, Kanoe Hitokouji 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[edit | edit source]

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.

Personality[edit | edit source]

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.

Magic[edit | edit source]

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.
