This page is for characters that only appear in the Lady season of Jewelpet. For the Jewelpets themselves, see here.


Momona

Voiced by: Keiko Kobayashi

The protagonist. She teams up with Ruby in order to become a Petit Lady.

  • Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder: With Cayenne gone to the Royal Palace, she gets lots of shippy moments with Miura, but it doesn't last.
  • All-Loving Hero: Her wish to understand and save the Beasts exemplifies this.
  • Big Eater: Well, like Jewelpet, like partner, right?
  • Advertisement:
  • Classical Anti-Hero: Doubts that she can really become a Lady.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: She can have some... unconventional ideas when it comes to passing tests.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Cayenne finds her clumsiness endearing.
  • Damned by Faint Praise: In episode 2, she asks Ruby what ladylike qualities does she possess. Ruby hesitates a lot and looks her up and down before saying it's her braids and pinky finger.
    • Mizuki remarks that it's amazing, "in a way", that Momona has only played inanimate objects in plays.
  • The Ditherer: She can't use the Jewel Arrow because she can't decide if it's right to harm a Beast or not, so the other characters have to do it for her.
  • Expy: Of Madoka.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Sanguine.
  • Genki Girl: Very lively and cheerful.
  • Hair Decorations: A big pink ribbon polka dotted darker pink.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In episode 50, together with Cayenne, she sacrifices her life to save the Beasts and Jewel Land.
  • Incest Subtext: She has deep feelings for her cousin, and Cayenne resembles him greatly.
  • Advertisement:
  • Loser Protagonist: She's clumsy and most ill-fitted to be a Lady, as a lot of characters repeatedly point out.
  • Messianic Archetype: Dies to save the Beasts, personifications of evil, and later comes back to life.
  • Odango Hair: She probably has the biggest ones in the whole of anime that aren't played for laughs.
  • Patrick Stewart Speech: The Beasts want to destroy the world because humans in their view have given them nothing but negative emotions. In episode 50, Momona gives them a speech about humanity's inherent goodness despite their shortcomings, and it convinces the Beasts.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: With the blue-haired Cayenne and to a lesser extent with the blue-dressed Miura.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Her color motif is pink, and she's very lively and girly.
  • Playing a Tree: In episode 3, after learning she has to reenact a play, she sheepishly remarks that her whole acting experience is playing rocks and trees.
  • Advertisement:
  • Red Herring: For a while she's suspected of being the illegal student known as Lady X because of the unorthodox way in which she was chosen to become a Petit Lady. She's not.
  • Red Oni: To Lillian; she's clumsy and outgoing.
  • Red String of Fate: With Cayenne in episode 50.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Has pink hair and is a very sweet, honest and kind girl.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Hot dogs. It's even in the OP.
  • Underdogs Never Lose: AVERTED! Momona, the losery but hard-trying protagonist, does NOT become Lady Jewel at the end! The spot instead goes to Lillian, her much more likely rival.

Lillian

Voiced by: Risa Taneda

A Petit Lady and the main rival to Momona. Partnered with Luea.

  • The Ace: She's good at everything related to being a proper Lady, and then some. Quite foreshadow her true origin, a doll given life by Luea and "programmed" as a perfect lady, to fulfill Luea's own ambition.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: The rebellious Miura is her true Prince.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Dark purple-haired, calm and reserved, admired for her proficiency at being a Lady.
  • Awesome Moment of Crowning: Becomes Lady Jewel at the end of the show.
  • Big Brother Attraction: Claims that Cayenne is her "soulmate". This attraction makes a bit more sense when you consider that none of the memories she has with Cayenne are real, so she doesn't truly have the experience of being with him as siblings, and she most likely doesn't understand the implications of incest.
  • The Big Damn Kiss: With Miura, when she finally comes back to life in episode 50.
  • Blank Slate: Since she was a doll, Lillian has no personality, no emotions and no experience with anything at the start of the show. All she has to go by are some artificial memories, courtesy from Luea, and Luea's own guidance.
  • Blue Oni: To Momona; she's cold and calm.
  • Challenge Seeker: She's more interested in competing with worthy Petit Lady rivals than becoming Top of Lady. This view clashes with Luea's, who's far more interested in achieving the latter through any means possible.
  • The Comically Serious: See episode 9 and marvel at the slapstick she's subjected to as she reports the weather, while acting as if nothing's amiss.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Purple hair and eyes.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: She starts out icey and disdainful towards Momona, but warms up to her as the show goes on.
  • Emotionless Girl: How she is at the start of the show. It's because she was a doll. It fades away as she befriends Momona.
  • Expy: Of Homura.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Melancholic.
  • Friendly Rival: Starts seeing Momona as a friend from episode 8. After that point she often offers advice to her even though they're competing for Top of Lady.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: She's more ladylike than any of her adversaries and her color motif is purple.
  • Hair Decorations: A yellow headband tied into a ribbon at the side of her head.
  • Memento MacGuffin: The musicbox, from her former owner Diana.
    • Her own self is this to Luea, as she's a doll left behind by Diana.
  • My Brother Is Off Limits: She doesn't appreciate someone as unladylike as Momona being close to Cayenne. She easens up soon enough, albeit on the condition that Momona someday become a great Lady.
  • Nostalgic Musicbox: The musicbox that she finds in episode 19 and obsessively listens to is Diana's item from the time Lillian was her doll.
  • Not So Above It All: She's a few hairbreadths away from being as perfect as Luea likes to claim her to be (for example, she reads Charon's phone novel like everybody else).
  • Opposites Attract: The most proper Petit Lady is attracted to the delinquent Prince Miura.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Luea sees her as a replacement for her former partner Diana.
  • The Rival: The main one to Momona.
  • The Stoic: She's always calm and cool, even as she watches Momona kiss Cayenne.
  • Tsundere: While she undoubtedly becomes nicer to Momona, she still brushes most of it off by saying that it's what a real Lady would do. As she occasionally blushes while saying it, it shows that she's not being honest.
  • Unwitting Pawn: She is the real Lady X, an orchestration by Joker and a half-unaware Luea to throw Jewel Land into disarray, but Lillian isn't aware of any of this.
  • What Is This Feeling?: Momona makes her feel all sorts of feelings she didn't know before. Justified, as she's originally a doll.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Purple.

Mizuki

Voiced by: Eri Sendai

Another Petit Lady. Partnered with Garnet.

Charon

Voiced by: Miki Shimomura

Another Petit Lady. Partnered with Sapphie.

  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Usually orange, but her magical items from Sapphie are blue.
  • Cute Bookworm: Has a mountain of books in her bedroom and wants to be a novelist. She's also adorable.
  • Dull Surprise: Thank her amateur voice actress, a member of Fairies.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Phlegmatic.
  • Girlish Pigtails: How her hair usually is worn.
  • Letting Her Hair Down: When she's put in her dress to be briefed by Lady Rector, she always has her hair down.
  • Meganekko: Wears glasses and her cuteness is played up a lot.
  • Out of Focus: After Momona moves to the Royal Palace.
  • Refusal of the Call: She didn't want to become a Lady at first, because she wasn't confident about it. It took Sapphie a lot of time and approaches to convince her, and even then Charon was only convinced by her unwitting sister.
  • Shrinking Violet: Has trouble talking to people. Predictably, the episode about good conversation focuses on her.
  • Stellar Name: Charon is the largest moon of Pluto.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A, thigh-high socks.

Elena

Voiced by: Mikako Takahashi

A Petit Lady residing in the Royal Palace who appears for the first time in episode 29. Partnered with Rosa.

  • The Ace: For most of the show, her impeccable attitude makes her the best Petit Lady, as well as the only one who can consistently wield the Jewel Arrow besides full-fledged Ladies.
  • Big Damn Heroes: With Cayenne in episode 30, appearing at the ball to save everyone from the armors.
  • Bring My Red Jacket: Wears primarily red. She's the only human to get shot with a Jewel Arrow, and it seriously looks like she's HURTING.
  • Break the Haughty: The whole ordeal with the Beast inside her makes her more trusting of people around her.
  • Broken Ace: Brought on by being emotionally weak enough to be possessed by a Beast.
  • Broken Messiah: Out of the Petit Ladies, she has the most noble intentions (wanting to create a peaceful world), but she also becomes the easiest target for the Beasts because of her single-mindedness in doing everything herself.
  • Broken Pedestal: What she's feeling when it's discovered that Rector is Joker.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Implied in the flashback to her past. She protected girls from bullies and was obsessed (still is) with peace and order.
  • Demonic Possession: Taken over by the Panthera Awesome Beast in episode 48.
  • Dissonant Serenity: Smiles and ignores Miura's impassioned rant against the Joker in episode 44 (note that the guy just lost the girl he loves in the previous episode), and remarks that they should capture Luea. Momona calls her out for being so cold, but Elena says that they're in the middle of a crisis and should be working on solving it. And then says that she suspected Lillian was the Joker, but she can be scratched off the list since she's dead. All with a smile.
  • Domino Mask: Wears it when she goes to the Jewel Palace in episode 30.
  • Expy: Purple-haired, soft-spoken ace who's top of her trade and has issues with loneliness. Mizuki Kanzaki, is that you?
  • Fatal Flaw: Excessive independence bordering on individualism.
  • For Great Justice: Part of her motivation to become Lady Jewel; she wants to do right by the weaker.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: In her single-minded quest to destroy the Beasts, she becomes possessed by one.
  • Ineffectual Loner: She's convinced that she has to become Lady Jewel by her own strength alone, even though Rosa warned her that achieving the position relies on her being liked by people. This is what causes her to become possessed by a Beast.
  • Jumped at the Call: How she became a Petit Lady in a nutshell - "Will I be able to become Lady Jewel?" "Yes, but..." "Don't even care, I'm in."
  • Kicking Ass in All Her Finery: Besides the mandatory Jewel Arrow, she desintegrates a Beast with a sword in episode 48, while wearing what would normally be an impractical dress for such ventures.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: The first time she looks distraught and angry is when Rector confesses that she is Joker.
  • Pair the Spares: Pairs off with Romeo mainly because she's the only Petit Lady left.
  • Purple Is Powerful: As she's the highest ranked Petit Lady for a good while, her purple hair is a good match for her. But in terms of clothes, red is her assigned color.
  • Red Herring: My, but is she suspicious; constantly smiling, mysterious and appears rather late in the show. No, she's not Lady X/Joker.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: She wants to become Lady Jewel so she can keep peace and order in Jewel Land.
  • Second Love: She's this for Romeo.
  • Sixth Ranger: Much like Miura to the Princes, she's a very late addition to the main Petit Lady roster.
  • Stepford Smiler: Her constant smiling is only to be pleasant to people, as befits a proper Lady. Inside, she is weary of the burden that her goal and individualism created.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Light purple.

Cayenne

Voiced by: Kenji Nojima

  • Big Brother Instinct: Even after discovering that Lillian is not his real sister and not even really human, he still wants to be her family and bring her back to life.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Appears in episode 30 saving Lillian from the armor's attack.
  • Bookworm: Often seen with a book in hand.
  • Declaration of Protection: To Momona in episode 30, as he warns her of the dark times approaching.
  • Expy: Of Kosuke, being the protagonist's love interest with a distant personality.
  • Fake Memories: Lillian, being a doll, is not his sister at all; his memories of her were implanted in him by Luea.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: With Momona; see her entry.
  • Identical Stranger: To Alto, from Momona's perspective.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Often makes fun of Momona, but it's noted by his fellow Princes that he's becoming less arrogant as he spends time with her.
  • Love Interest: For Momona.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: With Momona.
  • Put on a Bus: Disappears for a while as he's transfered to the Royal Palace in episode 15; the only we see of him during that time is holographic messages.
    • The Bus Came Back: Shows up in the flesh again in episode 29, and comes back from the Royal Palace in episode 30.
  • Real Men Hate Sugar: Or so Lillian claims, but he's shown enjoying it when Momona feeds him.
  • Red String of Fate: With Momona in episode 50.
  • Undercover Cop Reveal: His one-day-job in episode 11 is to disguise himself as a member of a gang; it's revealed only at the end of the episode that the blonde gang member who got fresh with Momona was him all along.
  • Vehicular Theme Naming: Porsche Cayenne.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

Romeo

Voiced by: Takashi Kondo

  • The Ace: The strongest candidate to becoming King and the only Prince who doesn't seem to have a glaring personality flaw (which is important for qualifying).
  • Empty Eyes / Mind-Control Eyes: When brainwashed in episode 36.
  • Expy: Should be one of Juushirou, in accordance with the Princes being recycled from the boys from Jewelpet Happiness, but the only similarity these two share is that they're both good at archery.
  • Hopeless Suitor: He falls in love with Momona and eventually confesses to her, but she's all about Cayenne (and a little Miura).
  • Nice Guy: Out of the Princes, he's the most willing and open to give Momona a chance, and doesn't badmouth her like them.
  • Pair the Spares: With Elena.
  • Slap Yourself Awake: Stabs his own leg in order to snap out of his brainwash in episode 36.
  • Vehicular Theme Naming: Alfa Romeo.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Miura. They have a rough start with Romeo punching him, but after that they're frequently seen together snarking at each other.

Soarer

Voiced by: Seiichirou Yamashita

Levin

Voiced by: Miyuki Sawashiro

  • Catchphrase: "I heard someone calling for me!" or some variation thereof (the joke being that no one actually calls for him).
  • Expy: Of Taira, as the most youthful and boisterous of the four boys.
  • Friend to All Children: He has lots of younger siblings, so he's used to dealing with children, making him the best partner for tests which involve them.
  • I Just Want to Be Free: His motivation.
  • Out of Focus: After Momona moves to the Royal Palace.
  • Vehicular Theme Naming: Toyota Levin.
  • Wacky Marriage Proposal: In episode 21, with Io's help, he sets up some fireworks that read "Marry me, Charon". It works.

Miura

Voiced by: KENN

  • The Ace: He had a near perfect score in the qualification exam (and the highest of all princes attending) and if not for his Noodle Incident, he would be the considered as the top candidate for becoming the King. He's also a talented hacker though that one leads to him being framed by Luea and jailed.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Garnet remarks that his "delinquent personality" is appealing in its own way. It holds true for Momona at first, and later Lillian.
  • Amateur Sleuth: Spends most of the anime investigating who Lady X is.
  • The Big Damn Kiss: With Lillian in episode 50.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While he's rebellious and causes trouble for the giggles, he's still a good guy at heart.
  • Kneel Before Zod: Wants to become the ruler of Jewel Land and make everyone (including Lady Jewel) bow before him.
  • Multicolored Hair: Most of his hair is white, with some black over the back of his neck.
  • Noodle Incident: What threw him in jail in the first place is never touched upon. Much, much later in the series it turns out that Miura was accused of hacking the school's system and making changes in it. Since he and Luea did try to hack the system in the same time (with Miura being unsuccessful due to system's complicated security system and Luea managing to hack the system by using magic but failing at covering up the changes) and Miura used his own Jewel Pad to hack the system, he is found guilty of the hacking and isolated from other students. Queen Claire and Boot later apologize to him for it and he is chosen to become the king of Jewel Land, together with Lillian as queen.
  • Not Me This Time: When Boot's Jewel Pad gets hacked by Luea in episode 25, she assumes Miura did it. Miura denies it but takes the fall anyway since he doesn't know Luea's the culprit and doesn't expect Boot to believe him given his record. Momona later bails him out.
  • Opposites Attract: With Lillian, given that he's a rebel and she's the most typical and rule-abiding Petit Lady of her group.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: With Momona, though he ends up preferring Lillian.
  • Rebel Prince: Fights with his peers and likes to throw proper Prince conduct out the window.
  • The Scapegoat: The reason he's in a cell at the start of the series. Luea framed him as the hacker who got into the school's system to cover herself when she couldn't disguise the changes.
  • Sixth Ranger: To the Princes, as he joins fairly late. It's because he was jailed throughout the first 16 episodes because of Luea framing him for hacking the school system.
  • Vehicular Theme Naming: Lamborghini Miura.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Romeo.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Subverted, he seems downright evil in his debut, with him stuck in a prison and smirking, but as we see more of him, it becomes clear that's he's a good if rebellious guy.
  • Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: Has yellow irises and is a jerk with a cunning personality.

Diana

Voiced by: Aki Toyosaki

A former Lady who left the lifestyle behind her in order to live her own life with her now-husband Alto, Momona's cousin. She's the one who sends Momona to the Jewel Palace.

  • The Ace: She always scored first place in her Lady tests.
  • Elopement: Ran away with Alto from the Jewel/Royal Palace so they could be together.
  • Genki Girl: Much like Momona, she's very cheerful and positive.
  • Herald: Sends Momona in her show-long journey to become a Lady. Diana also intended all along to have her influence Lillian and Luea.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Nearly kills herself several times in repeatedly closing the Door to Chaos.
  • Offered the Crown: Was the first choice for Lady Jewel in her generation, but she refused it.
  • Retired Badass: Formerly a Lady and nearly became Lady Jewel, but she preferred being free with Alto.

Rector

Voiced by: Miyuki Sawashiro

The Lady who runs the Jewel Palace. She's straight-laced, but fair.

  • Almighty Janitor: Technically, she was perfectly elligible to be Lady Jewel, but the high-ranks of the time determined that she was dangerously good at magic and passed her over. At least she got to be principal of the Jewel Palace.
  • Almost Dead Guy: Between stabbing herself with the Final Wand and dying, she has enough time to choke out her regrets.
  • Always Someone Better: How she's revealed to feel about Claire. She's angry that Claire was picked to be Lady Jewel instead of herself.
  • "Awesome McCool" Name: Odd, yes, but it still has a badass sound and meaning.
  • Bury Your Gays: The only character in this show to die for real. Her thing for Diana might have something to do with it.
  • Death Equals Redemption: She says she doesn't actually believe her death will earn her forgiveness, but she takes out Joker and chooses to stay dead, so the principle remains the same.
  • Demonic Possession: She became Joker because of the influence of the Beast inside her; it lets her keep her consciousness until she is found out.
  • Dying as Yourself: Gets rid of the Joker for good by stabbing herself, then dies after a brief speech.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: As Joker.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Her usual dress is purple and she's a high-ranking Lady.
  • His Name Really Is "Barkeep": She's always been Rector, even as a wet-behind-the-ears Petit Lady.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Stabs herself with the Final Wand to drive out the Joker.
  • Killed Off for Real: Dies in episode 47. Larimar informs her that Momona has given her the option to revive in episode 52, but she prefers to stay dead, making her the third character to die for real in the franchise, and first that has more than some relevance to the plot.
  • Love Makes You Evil: She loved Diana ("That might be why I wanted her for myself."). When she left to get married to Alto, giving up being Lady Jewel in the process, it partially motivated (the other motivation was that Diana asked Claire instead of her to take her place) Rector to become the Joker, so Diana could suffer seeing the damage that she caused Jewel Land.
  • Meaningful Name: Rector - literally means 'ruler' and it's the title given to the heads of institutions of higher education.
  • Prim and Proper Bun: As the principal of a school for future proper Ladies, she styles her hair like this.
  • Psycho Lesbian: She didn't take Diana's elopement well. At all. See Love Makes You Evil.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Usually wears purple and is top of the hierarchy at the Jewel Palace.
  • A Pupil of Mine, Until He Turned to Evil: How Larimar sees her.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Officially it's spelled Rector, but since fansubs use Lecter, that spelling has caught on in some circles.
  • Stoic Spectacles: Wears glasses and always keeps her cool even when she seems like she's about to blow a fuse.
  • Stern Teacher: She's not amused at all when someone from the Palace is writing an 'inappropriate' novel, and isolates the author (Charon, as well as Levin due to collateral damage) inside a dark cell.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Has them golden. As she's the Joker, it's actually an example of Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness.
  • Those Two Girls: With Boot.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly girl to Boot.

Boot

Voiced by: Miyuki Sawashiro

Boot is an adult Lady who dresses like she's in the army. She's the coach for Petit Ladies. She's very energetic and enthusiastic.

Alto

Voiced by: Ryuuichi Kijima
