Since she's 12 and she discovered her magical powers, she was trained to become a competent Magical Girl. Being trained for five years, she has no experiences with fighting demons like the other Crusaders who has fought demons since childhood/adolescence. In the beginning of the story, she starts her career as a Magical Girl and fighting demons, she has to fight not only one, but three demons. After killing two of them, she is rescued by Demonica who reveals herself as her senpai Hataka Machi. Demonica offers her that she and Lady Joan will team up with her to train and support her. In the following day she meets the Magic Knight Lady Joan (her other senpai Fuyuki Mai), she also meets the witch Phoebe and the other Magical Girl Noah who is her kohai Guruma Karera. The five of them found the group Crusade Paladins.

She masturbates almost every day, especially when she goes to sleep, enjoys watching or reading porn, abuses Goddoka to peak on the opposite sex, and she really enjoys seeing men in revealing outfits or naked. She is not above to look at her male co-students crotches when they are wearing swimming trunks, and she has developed an obsession of oral or actual sex once she did it with Shiyon while she also developed her love for sperm and blowjobs. Her nudism also makes her more horny than it should. Her mindset was also encouraged by her mother, who herself was an even bigger pervert when she was still alive.
- Has a Type: She generally prefers masculine men and finds even sumo wrestlers or hairy man relatively attractive. Deep and sexy voices are especially a turn-on for her. Although she wouldn't say no to Bishounen.
