  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: The four Compass Fairy fit this, even with their limited script.
    • Sanguine: The one with a chick. Her face in permanent X3, she talks in Motor Mouth, and she's always trembling with excitement every time she spins the compass.
    • Choleric: The one dressed like a witch. The most noticeable of the four, dressed gaudily even for the fairy's standard but her speech bubbles always filled with tad bit of trivia.
    • Melancholic: The one with hairclip. Doesn't really stand out, but most hard-working. Ambivalent of anything.
    • Phlegmatic: The green-haired one. Always looks sleepy, doesn't talk much, and even that she's pretty apathetic.

    Error Musu
