After giving Tama her "Way of the Magical Girl - Book for Idiots with Brains so Faulty, They Can't Grasp What I Say." when Tama couldn't read the kanji, Ruler sat with her and wrote in hiragana so she could understand. Though, this may have been to benefit herself by having Tama understand her rules clearly.

Can order those directly in front of her to do anything.
Ruler possesses a scepter as her unique magical item. It allows her to give a command to anyone she chooses.
Several conditions must be met to give the commands. Notably, Ruler must use her scepter when giving these commands, as the source of the magic is not herself.
To properly give a command, Ruler must fulfill the following conditions:
- She must stand completely still.
- She must call the opponent by name.
- She must point the scepter at them.
- She must be within 5 meters of the opponent.
- The opponent must understand the command.
If one of these conditions is broken at any point in time, the magic is canceled. The magic is also automatically canceled once the command has been carried out.
- Scepter: Ruler's unique magical item. It is necessary to cast her magic.
- “Way of the Magical Girl” Book: A Book written by Ruler for, as she states, ”idiots with brains so faulty, they can’t grasp what i say.”
Relationships[edit | edit source]

Tama[edit | edit source]
Tama is one of Ruler's students. When Tama says she can’t understand the words in the “Way of the Magical Girl” Book, Ruler helps translate the words Tama doesn’t understand. When Tama calls Ruler nice, Ruler gets embarrassed. Tama was the only one of her teammates who was sad for her dead.
Top Speed considers Ruler a friend much to the latter annoyance. They were both Calamity Mary's students. In Come Play With Top Speed, Top Speed tells Ruler that in order to avoid becoming like Calamity Mary, she should stop treating her teammates with cruelty.
Calamity Mary was Ruler's mentor. Ruler despises Mary, as the latter would constantly abuse her. When Ruler finished her time with Mary, she began to make plans on how to eliminate Mary.
In the first week of the magical girl raising project, Snow White ranked number one in the collection of Candies, Ruler was mad for this and decided to steal her candies in the next week, she used her magic and her teammates to attack her and steal her candies. Although Ruler did it in order to save her teammates and herself, she had no remorse in doing it.
Henmi Yuka is Ruler's close friend and former coworker. Although their friendship is strained due to Ruler cutting contact from all people after quitting her job, Yuka still genuinely cares for Ruler immensely. She frequently praises Ruler's work and cooking abilities, calling her a talented person she greatly admires.
In The Great Leader’s Distress, the two meet up accidentally while Ruler is searching for her team. Although she protests, Yuka rejoices at finding her close friend, bringing her into a coffee shop, reminiscing about Ruler's talents and her experience at work before she had quit. Ironically, Yuka reveals the workplace had actually gone downhill after she quit, despite their boss treating Ruler as an inferior.
