- "Sophie's best friend. She was born into a decently well off family, and she's a talented girl capable in both studies and fencing. She's very serious about everything, and acts politely. She and Sophie are childhood friends, and while she's always pointing out Sophie's faults, she's also very willing to help. She actually has quite a liking for singing, and can be found practicing in secret at times. She often visits Sophie's house to eat sweets, but she also cleans the place up in exchange."
