"Hotheaded Pico, a student of fire magic, thinks he's a born leader. His temper, however, says otherwise."

Pico, known in Japan as Pomodoro, is a party member in Magical Starsign. He is a student at Will-o'-Wisp Academy who specializes in fire magic.

Party member[edit | edit source]

Pico is present as a party member during the opening tutorial sequence at Will-o'-Wisp Academy. He later joins the party permanently on Gren. His initial level is 14.

Pico's affinity is fire, giving him aura when Razen is in alignment. His attacks are fairly damaging, and can immobilize enemies by causing them to be scorched.[1]

Profile[edit | edit source]

Personality[edit | edit source]

Pico considers himself to be a lone wolf, when in reality, he is deeply attached to the bonds he shares with his classmates. He is very enthusiastic and quick to take action, thinking very little of the consequences that will follow. Pico is also described as a hotheaded daredevil with a blistering temper.[1]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Pico's clothing is traditionally worn by a male cheer team at Will-o'-Wisp sports festivals.[2] He boasts a muscular form, tanned complexion, purple eyes, and bright red or orange hair that is wild and messy. His outfit consists of a sleeveless green turtleneck with gold trim, matching arm bracers, a blue-and-white rope belt, baggy green pants, and brown tabi socks tucked neatly into a pair of red, orange, and green ninja-style sandals. In addition, there is a sort of over-skirt layer with orange drapery, brown fabric, and red trim. On this layer, there are many geometric patterns in oranges and reds. Curiously, there are also a pair of horn-like accessories on top of Pico's head.[1]

Biography[edit | edit source]

Early life[edit | edit source]

Pico began teaching himself magic after his unemployed father stopped working to pursue other dreams, and later enrolled in Will-o'-Wisp Academy to hone his abilities.[a] He would provide for the family in his father's stead, while also making it his goal to strike it rich.[3] At the academy, he befriended the protagonist, Lassi, Mokka, Chai, and Sorbet.

He is first seen at Will-o'Wisp Academy in the protagonist's class, telling Miss Madeleine about having to deal with detention, and takes one of the school's rockets in an attempt to chase after Lassi.

Further into the story, he is seen tied to a wooden pole in Gren as the Felins are planning to offer him to the Pirate otters for the village's protection. He joins the party on Gren to help them take down the Peacock fish and rescue Sorbet.

Return to Kovomaka[edit | edit source]

Upon touching down on Kovomaka, Pico continued his education, only to be held back eight years in a row. His repeated failure pressured him into dropping out of Will-o'-Wisp, instead choosing to explore outer space on his own. Along his journey, Pico helped peculiar people and fought otherworldly creatures, earning himself a reputation as a hero.[1]

Nomenclature[edit | edit source]

His name comes from pico de gallo, a Mexican salsa.

Notes[edit | edit source]
