Bio

Majorika is a mysterious and stingy older witch whose greed often clouds her better judgment. Initially, she appeared resentful and bitter whenever she was changed into a witch frog, and she dislikes the changes made to the store until they begin to bring in a profit.

Appearance

Majorika is a small green witch frog with a single, longe curled strand of hair. She has black button eyes and big, rounded red lips. Her crystal ball is worn around her neck. When traveling she often puts on her witch hat and a shawl.

In her true form, Majorika is a thin elderly-looking woman with gentle red eyes and minor wrinkles. She wears dark red lipstick and lightly applied purple eyeshadow. Her very dark green hair is worn in large, oval-shaped buns with a single curled strand left loose at her forehead. She wears a dark green one-piece with a shawl-like cape that has indigo coloring on the inside and a large, loose purple collar. At the middle of her chest is an emerald sphere. She wears pink and purple striped gloves and loop earrings.

Personality

Calculating and self-serving Majorika adores money and showing off more than anything. She is prideful and quickly attempts to think up a quick plan to increase sales for a quick buck, but she is can be frivolous at times and egotistical. She doesn't handle being talked down to very well and can't tolerate people who mess around or cause problems if they hinder her efforts, and she won't hold back from bluntly criticizing others. She's easily set off and often bickers with others, but she's quick to suck up to those who can be influential or provide her with something good.

Due to her pride, she struggles when it comes to honestly talking about how she feels or when she has been hurt by someone else. She also refuses to admit her wrong-doings, and she is often thought to be heartless and mean.

However, deep down she thinks highly of the girls and she sees them as her daughters. She is willing to comfort them if one is truly hurt or in need of advice, and she is quick to compliment them for doing well or when they make progress. She also loves the Maho-do dearly and became depressed at the idea of being separated from it. As rough and strict as she comes off, Majorika loves to let loose and have fun.

Over the series, she begins to soften up and become kinder when it comes to the girls. She even befriends long-time rival Majoruka after Onpu joined the group and they can often be found drinking together.

Witch

Majorika is capable of using magic even as a Witch Frog, although she only relies on it during emergencies or whenever she's feeling the mood. She normally uses it to summon transportation for herself, normally a floating dustpan.

Her yousei is Lala, and someone who she is close to. They usually get along and can hold normal conversations, but Lala enjoys teasing Majorika and pointing out her flaws, much to her aggravation. Lala always has a nice thing to say about Majorika though, and she clearly cares about her.

Majorika's Crystal Ball is a purple sphere. 

History

Majorika was raised by Majoririka, a kind, and elderly witch. As she was growing up, she soon met her long-time rival Majoruka, and they spent a long time sabotaging each other and fighting for ownership of the Maho-do.

Relationships

Majoririka

It is unknown if they are related by blood, but they have a close mother-daughter relationship. Although Majorika keeps her true feelings to herself, she is shown to frequently worry over her and lovingly addresses her as Mama Ririka.

Majoruka

For unknown reasons, the two of them had a harsh relationship growing up. They spent more time arguing and pranking each other than focusing on important things, and their rivalry worsened after Majorika won the Maho-do. Eventually, they reconcile and became drinking buddies though, and they can be found hanging out together later on in the series.

Doremi

They often bicker and argue all of the time, insulting each other's weak points and attitude. However, Majorika deeply cares about Doremi and is very dependant on her since she was the one who changed her. She will compliment her whenever she does well.

Hazuki

Majorika was short-tempered with Hazuki at first due to her inability to transform. But realizing how smart and good she is at spells encouraged her to be more gentle.

Aiko

Initially, she wasn't too crazy about Aiko, and she's likely to argue with her the most after Doremi. But she adores Aiko's business sense.

Onpu

Majorika rarely ever gets angry with Onpu due to the fact she brings in a lot of money for the shop. She was envious of Majoruka because she had a talented apprentice like Onpu, but when she joined them she was proud of the results. She also appreciates the fact Onpu comes to the Maho-do late at night to help.

Momoko

Majorika's patience had been tested with Momoko due to how clingy she acted at first. After realizing that this was because she reminded her of Majomonroe, she began to lighten up on her.

Hana-chan

Majorika is close to Hana and is seen as a secondary mother to her whenever the girls aren't around.

Pop

While she didn't enjoy her time as Plush-chan, Majorika loves Pop and openly rubs in her competence in Doremi's face at the beginning of the series. As Pop is younger, she is willing to comfort her.

Magical Doremi

In the Magical Doremi dub, Majorika was given a deeper and gruff voice in comparison to her original raspy and high-pitched. Her negative attributes were increased.
