Pirica is an Ainu from Hokkaidō, a prefecture in Japan, who was born on February 9, 1987. Her main goal like her brother is to save the Koro Pokurru (Minutians in the English anime), a tiny spirit people. As part of this goal, her brother intends to plant a vast field of Butterbur. She was raised with the believe that the strongest prey on the weakest. When Horohoro grew up a little he was trained by his father but later left home to pursue his dream because his father will no longer take care of him. Pirica later followed Horohoro to Tokyo.

Shaman Fight First RoundEdit

After Horohoro is defeat by Asakura Yoh in the first round she showed up at Yoh's celebration party, surprised and netted her brother and dragged him away to train. She next watched her brother win the two matches he needed to get to next round of the fight.

She then showed up at the opening ceremony with Horohoro explaining things to her brother and watched Yoh and Tao Ren tie at the final match. She and Horohoro later went to Yoh's and celebrated that her brother's second round entrance.

When Ren was captured by his dad Horohoro went to China while Pirica stayed at In for the next month or so. She and Horohoro left Yoh's house and got a hotel room, where she would eventually give him a new medium for his Over Soul.

Shaman Fight Second RoundEdit

When the next part of the tournament started she went to the stadium and cheered on her brother. She later began to fear for her brother and called her father to the island. But as Usui Lycan would later tell Kalim he only came because Pirica pleaded for him to come and he left promptly afterwards.

Invading the PlantsEdit

When her brother and the remaining teams of the Shaman Fights was taken to the Contiment of Mu by the Patch Tribe Pirica stays behind on the beach together with her father, the Asakura Family and the Tao Family having a barbecue. When her father catches a large Tuna he is complimented by Pirica whom he tells that, today they will broil it.[2] She was last seen sitting together with her father on the beach preparing the fish and hearing Anna reading the Furyoku levels of her brother and his friends.[3]

She later appeared on board the Soul Train together with her father, Gororo and even Apollo, to the shock of her brother, calling out to Horohoro.

Funbari no UtaEdit

During the last chapter, she is not seen but mentioned going out with a guy, leaving her brother to do all the work at the farm.[4]

Anime/Manga DifferenceEdit

In the English anime, she, like her brother, is described as from "the Northern Woods" instead of from Hokkaidō.
