Mira Aoyama. Mew miracle berry. 15. Female, she/her or they/them. 5"4. dark navy black hair and warm chocolate eyes eyes in human form, candy apple red hair and cornflower blue eyes in mew form.
outfits: Cute, a lot of sweets themes, and kinda nerdy/preppy. She wears glasses when she has to read!
Birthday: Jan 13th
DNA: wooly paramo donkey / Human
Personality/backstory: Mira is the daughter of Ichigo and Masaya! She really admires her mom and has wanted to be a magical girl FOREVER. She has notebooks full of designs. Most of them are pink. She is…disappointed with her outfit to say the LEAST. She’s booksmart, top grades, and is the student council president at her school. Even so, she kind of..lacks social skills because she’s had like, (1) close friend (Yue-bing Fong, Pudding’s son!). It’s not for a lack of trying; she’s just kind of naïve and over-eager about things, and one-track-minded. But she really wants to be a good leader for the team, and is trying her best! She loves magical girl mangas too and has very particular ideas about what she should and shouldn’t be as a magical girl…Either way, she’s declared herself the LEADER and will not be talked out of it. Also, she lives off cake.
funfact: she has a pet snake named Candy Corn! She has mild allergies around fur. Her family has (2) dogs and (3) cats but they stay downstairs and can’t come in her room :“) She also has two older brothers but they were adopted, and when the story starts they’ve already both moved out!
Caroline 'Cara' Testout-Seebauer. Mew starfruit. 15. Female. 5"2. Gold hair and bright green-yellow eyes in mew mew form, dark chestnut hair and hazel eyes in her normal form.
outfits: Practical, tactical, comfy. She won’t wear it if she doesn’t think she can fight in it. darker colored clothes usually, reds and golds. also, alternate designs to her prosthetic leg are a-okay! it changes with her magical girl form, it’s normally silver, so.
DNA: Eastern coral snake
Birthday: March 7th
Personality/backstory: the Polar Opposite of Mira. Where Mira wants to be recognized and famous, Cara wants to be in the shadows and be ~mysterious~. I definitely don’t want to use the word ‘edgy’…But…………..Anyway little is known about her or how she came to work with the aliens because she is 100% a human. Even though Mira insists they’ve never met before the story starts, Cara seems to have it out for her, specifically. Hm…she’s the typical ‘rival’ character and tends to play it up a lot. But she get’s flustered pretty easily…could she have a hidden sweet side? ;)
funfact: she definitely cuts her own hair. lmao
Persimmon/ Mew Persimmon. Persi (nickname) 17. Female. 5"4. Light ash brown hair. Gold/orange gradient eyes.
outfits: BOUGIE . VERY BOUGIE STUFF. Silvers, warm browns, SPARKLY things. She’s all about High Class and looking cute!
Birthday: July 29th
DNA: alien :^) She’s Team Earth and actually sewed her ‘mew costume’ herself!! But she doesn’t have any animal DNA!
Personality/backstory: A member of the resistance against Queen, she was the only one who was able to flee and escape to Earth! Which is super lucky all things considered..because she’s incredibly lazy besides that. Most aliens can fly and teleport to an extent, but it turns out she’s super bad about it because she never practiced a lot when she was younger. She is also somewhat afraid of heights, so she refuses to practice more. She is really good with technology, which more than makes up for it. Since alien tech is light years ahead of Earth’s, she finds human’s tech primitive and considers helping them upgrade easy and hardly any effort. She’s incredibly laid-back, and loves to pamper herself and her friends. She might actually be so stressed she’s calm though; she’s been through..a lot. She’s happy to learn about Earth, and a fast learner! She LOVES the internet and very quickly got a popular account with fashion. Earth fashion in particular is her favorite hobby. She loves how diverse it is. And sparkly. She loves that.
funfact: She honestly hates fighting herself and getting all sweaty, so she usually has a chimera anima fight for her! She stole a parasite Queen was testing on and merged it with an anteater to make her adorable purple fluffy friend Grape. He…….is also lazy.
Aqua Shirogane. Mew candyfloss. 15. (robot?? 15 mentally??) Female. 5"3. hot fuschia pink hair, bright aqua eyes
outfits: CUTE. FRILLY. SWEET. Pastels, bright colors! Cute to her core!
DNA: A ROBOT.
Birthday: July 10th
Personality/backstory: A robot made by Ryou Shirogane as the next step of the mew project! He wanted to eliminate the risk of any more ‘real girls’ getting hurt, and wanted to make sure that even after he was gone, the one to carry on his work wouldn’t die out so easily in the event the Earth had another Major Issue. So, a robot! After Masha and Ucha, he decided to go ALL OUT. It took 15 years of work, but he finally did it! He..didn’t count on her sort of kind of gaining sentience at the level she did, the working theory is because she’s powered by mew aqua so the uh..magical properties did. Something. Either way, she’s happy to be here! She’s pretty happy about everything! She loves her friends a lot and loves protecting people! She’s adorable, so you wouldn’t expect that she’s the ultimate weapon! Seriously, uh. She can: fly, lift two tons, has xray vision to look thru stuff, light up ear and eye lights, can hear Really Well, amplify her own voice and can punch Really Really Really Hard. Also, her mew outfit has a detachable ponytail that’s more of. a Blade/boomerang kinda dealio. Her main problem is that she Can’t go outside of her specific mission or orders unless someone on her team tells her to. It’s really hard for her to make her own choices at times! She tries really hard.
funfact: Because she’s a robot, her hair is totally just. Wigs. So she can change her hairstyle/ length on a whim! Persi loves playing dress up with her :”)
Sapote. Mew Sapote. 21. Female. 5"11. light honey hair and bright gold eyes in mew mew form, and milk chocolate hair and gold/orange eyes in her normal form.
outfits: baggy clothes, clothes that give her freedom to move around. think tanktops, comfy shoes, shorts, or baggy pants. (the jacket pictured doesn’t even come in until later, but it’s an Earth Jacket, a bomber to be specific! Once she gets it she always has it. It’s. Fluffy. Warm. She’s emotionally attached to it.
DNA: Blackburns sphinx moth/alien DNA
Birthday: November 26th
Personality/backstory: A little goofy, a little sadistic at times. Others make the assumption she doesn’t care about her job because of her lackadaisical personality, but she went out of her way to ask Queen for it specifically, and literally Will Not let anyone else be in charge or watch after Cara. She doesn’t particularly have anything against humans, per say, and considers her work just that: work, and can detach herself from it pretty easily. She’s the first and only alien that was given a knockoff mew mew serum by Queen, who had worked on it for years. Even so, being that it’s an earth animals DNA, it’s not really.. compatible in the way it would be with a human (even then, only a few humans are compatible at that). Even so, Sapote did volunteer and will grit her teeth and take the side effects. Which usually aren’t pretty.
funfact: because she’s infused with a moth, her schedule is kinda nocturnal. also, when she’s not paying attention she sometimes finds herself chewing on her shirt. Because moth dna says EAT FABRIC. she hates that.
Masayume Hira / Mew Peach. Age, DNA and human form unknown
Masayume appears in Mira’s dreams, giving her advice and tips, but very little info about herself besides a name. How she’s able to project herself into Mira’s dreams is unknown, along why she only comes to Mira and no one else on Team Earth, but since her tips and hints always work in their favor, she’s definitely an ally despite her air of mystery!
Erdisia. 22. lesbian. mint green hair that gradients into sherbet orange. Grayish purple eyes.
outfits: Enjoys wearing cute, puffy clothes! Ribbons, bows, chiffon, silk. Short dresses and shorts. ‘Cute’ hairstyles like ponytails n braids.
Personality/backstory: Cheerful and highly aggressive! She will 100% stab anyone with a smile. She really hates humans and thinks they’re all below her. She loves cute things, and but she has a really nasty personality that doesn’t match at all. She’s super good at sucking up to people and flattering them if she wants something, though. Anything nasty or unpleasant, like torturing? Killing? She is absolutely there for that. She does ALL the dirty work dealing with prisoners of the rebellion. Persi would very much like to have Words with her about that…Sapote doesn’t actually like this girl, but Erdisia? Is like, lowkey obsessed with Sapote. Like 100% thinks she should be working with Sapote instead of Cara. Obviously since she’s a human, Cara doesn’t care for an alien speciesist against humans, and Erdisia goes out of her way to say nasty things to Cara in return. Cara is super good at ignoring people tho, which only makes Erdisia more mad.
Tunillo 17.straight. light olive green hair. light grey eyes.
outfits: slouchy, comfy clothes. Literally cannot be bothered to dress like a real person.
Personality/backstory: Entitled and sarcastic. Always thinks he’s the smartest person in the room when he’s hardly in the top ten in a room of five people. He’s every dudebro you’ve ever met who’s mansplained at every woman he’s ever met and simultaneously expects them to fall in love with him while he has nothing to really offer and refuses to do any work around the house. That guy. He hates talking to the others and is pretty anti-social, but he’s competent with tech. His job is to monitor everything. Like, he’s the guy who watches the cameras to make sure no one is up to no good business. The visor over his face can switch to any part of the alien ship, and he can even hack into cameras on Earth. He’s a SNITCH. He also dabbles in robotics and hacking. Neither Sapote or Cara like him very much :^)
Funfact: No one has seen him sleep. Seriously, you think Queen’d assign more than one person to watch cameras for this reason. Hm..
Saguaro 25. They/them aroace. Pine green hair that gradients into jade green. (???) colored eyes.
outfits: they like robes…comfy. flowy clothes. like. Snuggies. probably wearing slippers.
Personality/backstory: They are pretty mysterious! Despite always having bindings over their eyes, they happen to be the best with a sword. Like literally undefeated. They have a very peaceful personality though, inviting anyone to meditate and drink tea with them. They’re always happy to talk about their religion, which is the now banned church of Deep Blue. (Queen is very About Science and very anti Guy Who Tried to Kill Their Own and stuff. She also doesn’t like the idea of anyone following a dead leaders beliefs instead of following Her. So.) A firm believer in destiny, they’re actually against Queen to an extent, but believes being close to her will lead them to the path that Deep Blue will cross. Because destiny. because Saguaro totally believes the Revival Is Coming. Most people think they’re super weird for it, and Queen has, in her very polite way, banned them from being Too Vocal about it. Sapote is super weirded out by it. Cara is like. Kind of amused and kind of enjoys hanging out with Saguaro because they’re like, even with all their quirks, the most chill of the group. Also, cool sword collection. Saguaro is happy to hang out with the human! But at the same time, they’ll make remarks that sound full of pity towards the humans.
Funfact: Queen doesn’t like them wearing blue because that’s Deep Blue’s color whereas she likes yellow and white. They wear a good bit of blue anyway! A quiet way to rebel, maybe?
Queen 24. bi. Sacramento green hair. gold/orange gradient eyes.
Outfits: She’s always in a dress/gown in public, bun on the same side or hair down, and usually wearing red lipstick. Always dressed in gold, yellow, white (or a combo of them) ANY kind of crown or circlette headdress or gown is ok! When not in public? comfy. hair tied out of the way so she can work!
Personality/backstory: Elegant! Leaderly! Graceful! Poised! At least when people are watching her. Yes, her name is really Queen! Eccentric parents that wanted her to be the best. She’s..probably disappointing them with this career path. She’s the top general of the alien army and revels in the irony of her name. She’s really charming to talk to and acts like a Real Lady…but most the people listed here have seen her when she’s not in front of people. Which is. Her in a lab coat, messy bun, up until the morning after an all-nighter, taking notes faster than she can speak them. She LOVES science and is more passionate about it than being a leader. But she must have her own reasons for taking on such a big role and running operations against Earth so aggressively, right? (;
Arilla. pan. 25. periwinkle grey hair with dark mauve grey bangs. ice green eyes.
outfits: Enjoys wearing comfy clothes. However, he NEVER shows his arms, legs or neck for personal reasons, so if dressing him in alternate clothing, keep that in mind! Keep him Covered Up.
Personality/backstory: Tired. Seriously needs a nap. Sleepy and grumpy at any given moment. Borderline snarky when he can be. Queen’s righthand who’s actually left handed too, probably. He doesn’t do actual like, fighting stuff, he mostly just follows her around, making sure she doesn’t miss meetings or trip in her heels. Makes sure she eats. I don’t want to call him a babysitter, but. He also checks on Cara and Sapote in the same way as a part of his job. Sapote LOVES picking on this dude. Drives him up the wall. Cara is pretty ready to boss him around too because she thinks he’s a pushover (he is). He kinda doesn’t even like Queen on a personal level or agree with what she’s doing, but he’s in debt to her for something she did for him in the past, so he feels obligated to work for her. The emotion he feels towards her is something like pity.
Pereskia. 28. bi aro. crocodile green hair. fern green eyes.
outfits: Despite her very serious personality, she really likes dressing up a little. Loves heels to tower over people, won’t wear em while fighting tho. Also, she’s super all about showing off her muscles because she’s proud of them. Suns out guns out.
Personality/backstory: Serious and hardworking. She’s the one most likely to do good on a group project but also the most likely to nag you into the ground about making it PERFECT. She has a lot of honor, and will work tirelessly to get her job done. She seriously takes a lot of pride in it, but she will never be overly sadistic about it; she’s all about being efficient. She doesn’t get along with Sapote like, at all, because she thinks she doesn’t take her job seriously and is mad she got so far with her kind of attitude. She actually does get along with Cara tho and has nothing personal against humans. She just thinks the humans at the top are consumed with greed, and feels bad for all the other ones that will 'have to die for that’. She’s really protective over kids.
Yue-Bing Fong. 15. He/him. Bi. marigold hair, bright amber eyes
outfits: SWEATERS, stripes, earthy tones, casual clothes! lots of jeans and shorts and well-worn shoes. Think art hoe or gays getting brunch 😌
Mira’s childhood best friend! He’s Bu-Ling and Taruto’s son! He’s full of energy, lights up any room he’s in and a bit of a social butterfly. He’s an extreme extrovert, making him Pretty Popular. Despite his DNA, he can’t really do any Alien stuff like flying, teleporting, ect. He’s. Tried. A lot. He likes gardening as a hobby with his dad, but takes after both his parents a fair bit in personality. He’s teasing, but also very kind! he’s also very talented as a gymnast, and got a scholarship to a very prestigious athletics school in China, so he’s currently studying abroad there. But he still makes time to video chat with Mira as much as he can! Timezones won’t stop them from chatting! (Well, it might, because Mira goes to bed super early) But THEY TRY.
He’s transgender and his parents are very supportive! In the first place the aliens have a looser idea of gender anyway so it’s not even super unusual as a concept for his dad tbh. Also he’s double jointed and loves to freak people out with his. Bendy Fingers
Venus. 26. she/her. aroace. Soft terracotta hair, gold eyes
She’s Sapote’s older sister! (yes older she is shorter tho) She’s older by 5 years, and works with the kids on the alien ship! She’s basically running a daycare type situation with a few other aliens, but she’s in charge of it. She’s nervous but very kind and responsible, and her and Sapote are close (she worries about her A Lot) Sapote comes by the daycare a lot, and drags Cara. The kids are so excited to meet a human!!! Cara is very overwhelmed. Sapote LOVES the attention and will transform into her mew form just to impress the kiddos. Venus and Sapote left home together at ages 17 and 22 after Sapote got into a huge fight with their parents; Venus of course followed Sapote and tried to keep her out of trouble, and they still only speak to each other and not their immediate family. Venus loves kids and just has a lot of love for everyone, tbh!! She’s such a sweetheart 💕
Nashi and Ume are twins! They were adopted into the family when Mira was 5, they were 12 and the orphanage’s “difficult children” because they wouldn’t talk to anyone but each other (their birth family wasn’t too great so they had a lot of trauma regarding adults) and they didn’t want to be separated. But adopting was super important to Masaya and after a few months they opened up to the family :)
Nashi is the more laid back one with a sense of humor! He’s easygoing. He’s got kinda bad luck and is more of the class clown than a smart guy like his twin, and he doesn’t have any huge ambitions in life. He’s constantly bouncing between crappy jobs but he’s got a good attitude about it. His apartment is closer than Ume’s so Mira comes over a lot and spends the night! He does kinda downplay it when he’s actually struggling bc he feels like his family has already done so much, and he doesn’t wanna burden them. He’s He’s really sweet boy…
Ume is the more quiet twin. He’s also relaxed, but his sense of humor is more dry. He’s kindhearted, but a little awkward. He was at the top of his classes and immediately went into a secret government branch called galactic affairs that handles aliens and cover ups— he works with Ryou a lot to keep the mew project under the table! He’s really accomplished for his age and is traveling a lot for work, but he honestly misses his family a lot and gets homesick easily :’)
Luna is Zakuro’s adopted daughter! She’s mute and uses sign language. Zakuro lives in California most of the time (she does have a huge vacation home in Japan where she goes once a year and invites all the mews!) and that’s where she met Luna. Luna is actually a published author by the time she’s 15; she was in a foster home and put out books online under a pen name about her experiences, and loss at a young age— and Zakuro happened to read it and was struck by how much it sounded like her when she was younger. She arranged to meet up and support Luna’s writing, and by the time Luna was about to have to leave her current foster home, they both felt like the other was family, so adopting her just seemed natural. Zakuro keeps her way far away from the spotlight unless Luna just wants to come with her, and even then she’s a fierce mama wolf 🐺 Luna is reserved and VERY intelligent and wants to continue to put out books. Also, she can skateboard!
Madeline and Juliette are just Tiny Kids who are…like most kids, just super rowdy and excitable! They’re best friends and they share everything and just are generally sweet kids. Also since Berry is a fashion designer, they always have trendy clothes as far as kids clothes go.
Imani is Keiichiro’s wife! She’s an accomplished astronomer and they met at the observatory she works at when they were around 30 and fell for each other really quickly when they got into a conversation about space and it turned into a two hour talk… and they still wanted to talk more! They can talk for hours and not get bored, and they’re both mature and kind people so they’re great for each other. She loves that he can bake too and how sensitive he is ❤️ she helps out with the monitoring of aliens and knows about the mew project! She’s confident, well spoken, and very kind, and she loves running educational lectures at her job about space!
the og girls!
the og guys!
Persimmon's pet chimera anima. Appearently it was made from something Queen was testing out...but what, exactly? Seems like a normal chimera to everyone who meets him! Eats sweets, drools on everything, Mira wants him to stay far away from her with all that fur shedding and drool! Persimmon thinks hes good to nap on.
Playing with oc school uniforms and how I think they'd wear them... these probably aren't the final designs, but I thought it'd be fun to show my process a lil and show my messier sketches :p
I think despite being a kinda nice private school they're lax with the uniforms, you can wear the skirt vs pants or tie vs bow regardless of gender so I think Cara would also wear pants some days... Mira is solidly a skirt gal tho. 🤔
Mira wears it very proper but throws in cute accessories in the schools colors, Cara, being nocturnal as she is throws it on However Is Fastest since she plans on napping or doodling in classes anyway, and Yue-Bing wears it relaxed but 'cool' ! I feel like Mira is always fussing at Cara and trying to fix her tie and collar, and mad Cara let's it stay wrinkled lmao. (I think Cara just throws the uniform on the floor when she gets back to the ship, and if she accidentally leaves her door open, Arilla WILL wash and iron the clothes against her will.)
These are sorta the cold weather versions, but since Cara is cold natured, she wears her cardigan almost the whole year and regularly takes Mira's scarves...
The Uchushi, the alien race that attacked the alien's planet, seemingly out of the blue. They can survive nearly anything, extremely tough and long-lived. Almost every bit of knowledge or speculation about the species comes from Queen, who put her life on the line to get information that might help defeat them. In the end she was unsuccessful and forced to flee the planet with everyone else, but who knows...maybe she's still working on it...?
Two alien ladies, Chiffon and Eclaire! Eclaire was Chiffon's best friend before she passed from an illness. Eclaire always wanted to see the universe beyond the alien's planet, and after her best friend passed, she was always looking to the stars, waiting for a ticket out... maybe she'll come back into the story sometime?
Cara and Sapote's weapons.
Persimmon's room at the Aoyama's household.
Mira's room at the Aoyama's household.
Aqua's room at the cafe.
