- Disambiguation: There is also a Caren Ortensia in the Fate series.
is a fictional character in the manga
series Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch
. She is the Keeper of the Purple Pearl and Mermaid Princess of the Antarctic Ocean, which is also known as the Southern Ocean.
Caren has a twin sister named Noel who is Mermaid Princess of the Arctic Ocean. After finding out that Noel has become captured by the sea monsters, Caren sought out on a quest to find her and meets Lucia, Hanon and Rina Tōin. She initially despised Rina and blamed her for leaving her sister behind and running away on her own until she learns the truth, but she is still reluctant to being with them. But whenever she needs to, she will appear to assist her friends.
In the end, they work together to confront their enemy and Caren finally frees her sister, along with Coco, the Mermaid Princess of the South Pacific Ocean.
Caren means pure.
Caren has three forms: her mermaid, human, and Purple Pearl Voice form.
Her mermaid form follows the trend of all the other mermaid princesses, with two pearl bracelets around her left wrist and tail.
In her human form, her light purple hair becomes a wine purple color, and her eyes also become a brown color (in the manga, her hair in the human form is pink, her eyes are blue). She wears a necklace with her pearl inside it like the other mermaid princesses.
Purple Pearl Voice
Lastly, there is her idol form, her Purple Pearl Voice.
Her costume is a white short dress, with purple ruffles down the side.
Except for the colors, Noel's and Caren's dresses are similar. She has a beauty mark below her left eye.
In the anime, Caren shouts "Purple Pearl Voice!" to transform. In the manga, she can transform at will with no incantation.
In her idol form, like Lucia and the others, Caren can use her singing voice to get rid of enemies.
Her song is Aurora no Kaze Ni Notte, and in the manga, at the end of her songs, she uses 'Cutie Hot Pitch'. In the anime, she uses 'Love Shower Pitch' with the rest of the mermaids.
Caren was voiced by Ema Kogure
in the Japanese anime
