Pukin (プキン) is one of the main antagonists of Magical Girl Raising Project: Limited.
|The following information contains significant spoiler(s):|
|In Limited, she is freed from prison by Pythie Frederica and Tot Pop. Together with Sonia Bean, the four Prisoners set out to B-City to find the assassin.|
As a Magical Girl, Pukin has short orange hair with yellow tips and a white water bird’s feather accessory on top of her head. Her eyes are grayish-yellow and are otherwise empty save for her red slitted pupils. She has dark red lips.
She wears a noble outfit described to look like Prince Charming out of a fairytale. She has a large white frill collar around her neck, with a blue and black tabard decorated with fancy patterns. Underneath her tabard, she wears only a white brassier. She also wears a red cape slung over her right sidelined with white fur and black patterns.
She wears pumpkin style shorts with large pumpkin earrings to match. She keeps her rapier in a holster at her waist. She has a large, fluffy tail the same color as her hair.
Her matching boots and gloves are dark brown with a lighter brown that similarly flare out at the top. There are small buckles on her gloves.
She uses an archaic male pronoun (wagahai) but her manner of speech is gender-neutral and aristocratic, and her behavior is elegant and well-mannered. She is highly educated by the standards of the era she was born in. Pukin has a chivalrous spirit, respecting opponents who she feels deserve her respect, even if they are enemies.
Pukin is very egotistical and haughty. She is also incredibly sadistic and tortures other people as a hobby. She especially loves to torture and even eat fairies such as Toko. This is due to the fact that they are high in nutrition and she loves the sound of their screams.
Pukin is blind to her own wickedness and believes herself to be completely righteous with no faults. She has a quick and violent temper when opposed or disrespected. Pukin only cares for herself, with the only exception being her partner whom she shares a close relationship with, Sonia Bean.
Pukin prefers to be called "General" or "Your Excellency" but does not mind accidental slips of the tongue.
Can change the thoughts of anyone she stabs with her magic sword.
Any target, including herself and other creatures, who are hurt by her unique sword will be brainwashed.
Her brainwashing can have a variety of effects such as letting the target misunderstand the enemy as an ally, losing some of the senses, understanding what the owner is saying, altering one's memory, or having hallucinations.
The magic can only work on one person at a time. When the magic is applied to the new target, the old target will return to their original state.
- Magical Sword (Former): Pukin's rapier. This sword can alter the mind of whoever is stabbed. The sword will also work if it's being used by someone other than Pukin. Although Pukin can possess multiple swords, only her pumpkin rapier has magical abilities. Pythie Frederica currently possesses this sword.
During the events of Limited, Pukin and Sonia Bean team up with Pythie Frederica and Tot Pop.
Pukin and Sonia's history together goes centuries back. Pukin first met Sonia on a mission in the mountains, where she discovered Sonia as an orphan living in a cave. Sonia was a bandit who thieved from passers, and likely would have remained that way forever if Pukin had not made an exception to take her in. It is unclear whether Sonia was a human when Pukin found her, or if she later transformed into a Magical Girl by unknown means, but Pukin quickly grew attached to Sonia and the two became partners. Sometime after this, they began their murder spree in the British Isles.
With Sonia's magic, the two of them disintegrated any evidence of their crimes. However, combined with Pukin's old solved cases being re-opened, it was partly Sonia's magic that ended up being what got them discovered and apprehended. When the pair were arrested, Pukin fought for Sonia's right to freedom, claiming that Sonia was innocent and that she was only following Pukin's orders as her retainer. Regardless of Pukin's efforts, Sonia was still arrested and sealed away along with her.
When Pukin and Sonia are broken out by Pythie Frederica at the beginning of Limited, Pukin asks where Sonia is and demands that she be set free. She also states that Sonia is her necessity and that she refuses to be without her.
The relationship the two of them share is very close, and one built off of trust and love. Sonia is the only one who calls Pukin by her name without the use of titles, and Pukin respects Sonia like a partner rather than a subordinate. Pukin says that it causes her pain to know that Sonia's name was dragged through the mud along with her own. Though Pukin is seen yelling at Sonia for looting from a corpse, she quickly tries to soothe Sonia by sitting beside her and tells her about delicious sushi. She wipes Sonia's face when it gets dirty. When the two of them reach for the last piece of meat on a plate, Pukin takes the meat and cuts it in two for Sonia and herself.
Sonia is also said to be part of Pukin's harem. The two of them are affectionate with one another, as in Shogun Pukin's Case File - The Murder of the Mage, Pukin caresses Sonia's chin with her fingers, and is hugged by Sonia.
When Sonia was killed by Archfiend Pam, Pukin became deeply grieved, unable to rid herself of the sadness and emptiness Sonia’s death left in her wake. She thinks of Sonia as she eats and laughs as she recalls that her manner of eating is similar to Sonia's, and then feels her heartache. She tries not to think of Sonia, and even sends Rain Pow out to kill civilians on the street to give herself a distraction. Pukin eventually became unhinged by the loss of Sonia, calling out Sonia’s name in response to hearing a noise even though Sonia had already died.
It was said by Pythie Frederica that before Pukin met Sonia, Pukin had only been unbearable in personality, hinting at the possibility that Pukin only became a serial killer after meeting Sonia.
Pukin and Pythie Frederica team up during the events of Limited.
Pukin first meets Frederica when her prison seal is broken. Frederica drops to her knees in front of Pukin and tells her that they've come to take her out of the prison. Pukin looks surprised, to which Frederica smiles at her. Pukin smiles back. Pukin asks Frederica if she means to "release the monster who has been sealed away for all eternity," to which Frederica replies that to keep Pukin locked away forever would be blasphemous to human history. Charmed by Frederica's placation, Pukin resolves to help Frederica with whatever task she asks to repay Frederica for releasing her.
Pukin quickly becomes fond of Frederica and thinks her a capable woman. When Frederica offers to help her order more sushi, Pukin tells Frederica that she is very talented and that she wishes to take her on as retainer.
Pukin is shown to be easily manipulated by Frederica. This is most prominent when Frederica convinces Pukin to allow her to calculate the time in which they would jump in to save Sonia from her fatal battle with Archfiend Pam, also indicating Pukin's trust in Frederica. After Frederica fails to save Sonia and Pukin ends up injured from Rain Pow's attack, Pukin and Frederica split off from each other.
Frederica (accidentally) confronts Pukin when Pukin flees back to the apartment after her injury. Pukin is furious that Frederica neglected to use her crystal ball during the fight with Archfiend Pam, and demands to know why she did not utilize her magic, unaware that Frederica had lost it to Funny Trick back when the Prisoners' car had crashed. Unable to give Pukin an answer, Frederica flees from Pukin just as Pukin lunges to kill her.
When Pukin later thinks of Frederica, she thinks that Frederica's "laziness" as one of her attendants is unforgivable and that she needs to be punished. She also thinks that she'd like to meet back up with Frederica, but doesn't know how to find her. Thinking of Frederica fills her with displeasure.
In the final battle of Limited, Frederica breaks Pukin's wrist and then steals her rapier by using her magic. Whether Pukin was aware it was Frederica who did this in her seconds before death is unknown.
Pukin and Tot Pop are on the same team.
Pukin seems to be unaware that Tot Pop is first afraid of her after Pukin had decapitated her gas mask girls back in the prison. After being left alone together by Pythie Frederica, Pukin complains to Tot Pop about her history in depth, claiming that she was unjustly imprisoned and that everything she had done was in the name of justice. Tot Pop enthusiastically agrees with everything that Pukin says, and tells Pukin that she's a good person that people will love and want to follow along with.
Tot Pop cooks a lot of food for both Pukin and Sonia.
Pukin first met Weddin in front of the abandoned factory during the events of Limited.
After Weddin ordered her team to run, Hana fled, and Sonia Bean, Pythie Frederica, and Tot Pop gave chase to those who had scattered, Pukin was alone with Weddin. She approached Weddin cautiously but seemed to be impressed by Weddin's surrender. She then subtly brainwashed Weddin and complimented her, saying that Weddin had an "admirable attitude."
After this, Pukin wasn't the least bit cautious around Weddin. She freely talks to her and puts her arm around Weddin's shoulders to show Weddin her rapier. Having decided to take Weddin on as a retainer, Pukin brainwashed Weddin to believe that she had been with and admired Pukin for ten years and that following Pukin was the right thing to do.
Pukin also made Weddin fall in love with her. Pukin kept Weddin intimately close to her, such as making Weddin part of her harem along with Sonia, caressing Weddin's chin with her fingers, and making Weddin press up against her in the backseat of the Prisoners' car. When the Plymouth Fury crashed, Pukin grabbed Weddin by the collar and yanked her out of the wreckage with her so Weddin wouldn't get injured.
After Pukin releases her magic hold on Weddin to brainwash herself during her fight with Hana Gekokujou, Pukin seems to resent the fact that Weddin ran away from her, and deems Weddin suitable for death.
Pukin brainwashed Toko using her magic sword. Pukin eats Toko to consume her magical energy and heal her wounds from Rain Pow’s earlier attack. Pukin also gains a stat boost by eating Toko.
Pukin's first indirect encounter with Rain Pow was during her fight with Archfiend Pam. Rain Pow had shot Archfiend Pam through with rainbows, which ended up also piercing Pukin's stomach. Having been gravely wounded by the attack, Pukin makes the decision to retreat and recover. Pukin considered Rain Pow and Toko to be her top priority to hunt down, as she felt humiliated by them.
Pukin came face to face with Rain Pow after Pythie Frederica created a destructive set-up to lure them both out to clash.
The result of their fight was Rain Pow ending up brainwashed by Pukin's rapier. When Pukin had captured Toko with a swarm of brainwashed crows, she then brainwashed Toko to bring a piece of Pukin's snapped off rapier to Rain Pow's chest where Toko would usually hide. Toko then stabbed Rain Pow and brainwashed her in turn. Rain Pow came to believe that Toko was Pythie Frederica's hand, and that Postarie was Pukin, and cut them both down.
Pukin briefly undid the effects of her brainwashing to allow Rain Pow to see the reality of the situation. What Rain Pow saw was Postarie and Toko, murdered by her. Pukin then cut Rain Pow's cheek, and brainwashed her again, ordering her to mutilate Postarie and Toko's bodies. Rain Pow did so until Pukin was satisfied. Pukin then told Rain Pow that once matters had settled, she would undo the effects of her magic so that Rain Pow could feel the guilt of having murdered her two best friends in her heart as Pukin killed her. Pukin refers to this as "the first forgiveness Rain Pow would ever receive."
With Rain Pow as her retainer, Pukin orders Rain Pow to bring her snacks. She thinks that Rain Pow's brainwashed personality is a bore, but that it also can't be helped since it was Pukin who programmed her to be that way. She also thinks that even if she ordered Rain Pow to amuse her, it wouldn't work.
Saddened by Sonia's death, Pukin buried herself in food. When that wasn't enough and Pukin began to grow restless, Pukin ordered Rain Pow to go outside and kill every civilian in sight as well as set everything on fire, both to distract herself and to lure out the Investigation Team to her.
Pukin and the other Prisoners capture Hana and bring her back to the apartment that functions as their base.
While Hana claimed that she was worked to the bone and not compensated enough for her efforts by the Examination Division, Pukin said that Hana still had the beautiful sparkling eyes of a Magical Girl and that she disliked that look. Hana then told Pukin that her eyes only looked that way because of her eyelid glue, which irritated Pukin.
When Pythie Frederica asked Hana if the Inspection Team had a meetup location, Hana denied having any such location and told her that she can't tell them anything she doesn't have knowledge on, but that she could teach them how to do good eyelid glue. After Frederica translated what Hana said, Pukin got fed up and threw her dagger at Hana's ear, slicing it clean in half. She told Hana that she would not overlook being mocked. She then tried to throw her rapier at Hana to kill her, but Frederica stopped it before it pierced Hana. Pukin eventually gives up on Hana and leaves her be.
Pukin was gravely wounded after her fight with Archfiend Pam, as well as having been struck by Rain Pow's rainbows. Despite this, Pukin still fought Hana. Pukin had prior knowledge of Hana's magic, and so she brainwashed herself to feel no pain in order to take Hana on in her state.
She ended up killing Hana after impaling her chest with a dagger.
Pukin and Archfiend Pam first met after the Prisoner's car had crashed and Pam saw the damage.
When Archfiend Pam appeared from the sky, it was the first time that Pukin began to take things seriously, able to sense Archfiend Pam's power. Pythie Frederica informs Pukin that Archfiend Pam is known as the strongest Magical Girl to which Pukin responds that it's actually herself who is the most powerful of Magical Girls.
Pukin finds Archfiend Pam to be rude, between Archfiend Pam not introducing herself before asking for Pukin's name and calling Pukin an assassin. It's described that the air between them was tense.
Pukin calls Archfiend Pam insolent after she steals Hana, who Pukin saw as her hostage, without paying a ransom. Archfiend Pam quips back that it's Pukin who is the insolent one. Pukin makes to advance towards Archfiend Pam but is held back by Sonia, who lets Pukin know that she wants to fight Archfiend Pam in a one-on-one battle. Pukin trusts the task to Sonia and falls back.
After Archfiend Pam ends up killing Sonia, Pukin immediately attacks her. The two of them fight one another, with Pukin dominating Archfiend Pam in terms of raw physical strength. Their fight went unfinished due to Rain Pow killing Archfiend Pam in the middle of their battle.
Pukin later thinks of Archfiend Pam with disdain. She considers Pam to be the most unforgivable of her enemies, as she murdered Sonia and made Pukin feel fear. She considers toying with Archfiend Pam's corpse to vent her anger.
Pukin and the rest of the Prisoners capture Funny Trick along with Hana Gekokujou after Captain Grace's death.
Pukin thinks that Funny Trick is the assassin that they're in search for. She claims that because of her keen inspector's eye, she is able to tell people's true nature. Pukin says that she was able to see the faintest gleam of glee in Funny Trick's eye, even though Captain Grace, her friend, had just been killed in front of her.
After Frederica confronts Funny Trick with Pukin's accusation, Funny Trick panics and begins to scream. Pukin gets irritated and throws a plate at Funny Trick, reducing her to only sobs. She tells Funny Trick not to scream at her in a nonsense tongue, and to be quiet since she was at dinner.
When Frederica asks if Pukin still believes that Funny Trick is the assassin, Pukin says that she's changed her mind and her evaluation based on new information and that Funny Trick is simply an abnormal person.
After Funny Trick switches Pukin's eye for one of Mana's smoke bombs, Pukin ends up murdering Funny Trick with a dagger to the chest when Funny Trick lets her guard down.
Pukin killed Kuru-Kuru Hime's father.
When the Prisoners had found Kuru-Kuru Hime's address from the documents they'd stolen at Namiyama Middle School, they headed to Kuru-Kuru Hime's home. Sonia disintegrated the door, and Pukin decapitated Kuru-Kuru Hime's father, who was alone at home, before he could make too much noise.
