She is a Natural-type who uses the new brand, Sunny Zoo.


Peppa has a tan complexion and large, pale olive eyes. At the lower right corner of her mouth is a beauty mark. Her pale wheat colored hair is wavy, worn just past her shoulders and curled on end. Her bangs are tucked beneath her long curled forelocks. She has a wild look to her, with thick eyebrows hidden beneath her bangs.

Pepper glares

She is hyper, tomboyish, and childish, and likes running around and jumping through the trees. She seems to be constantly hungry, as when she is seen hunting the various mascots and animals in PriPara. She was raised by lions, and consequently, she perceives the various characters as various different animals, which seems to affect how seriously she takes them. Laala and Non she sees as rabbits, Dorothy is a chihuahua, Shion is an eagle, Mirei is a house cat, Leona is a male lion, Chiri is a peacock, and Gloria is a lioness. As Gloria and Leona are the only ones she sees as lions, they also seem to be the only ones that she shows some form of respect to. 


  • Non Manaka - Her teammate in NonSugar and her guide in school. Pepper sees her as a bunny and wants to eat her at times but is scared because of a lock of hair from the Headmistress whom she sees as a lion like her mother.
  • Chiri Tsukikawa - Her teammate in NonSugar. She likes her both outside and inside of PriPara, she tries to show her friendship by "Licky-Sticky" but it makes Chiri terrified until she snaps in Episode 123. Pepper sees her as a beautiful peacock.
  • Leona West - She appears to have a crush on him, and had danced around him to express her feelings.
  • Usacha - Pepper's manager in PriPara.
