Place of birth Japan Monkey Centre

Father Kenchi
Mother Sumire
Pendensa is slender. Her second finger and third finger adhere to the second joints. Her skin is very dry. Her skin becomes cracked and she loses her hair in winter. We rub her skin with olive oil, but she immediately scratches herself. Due to this, her body looks white. Her face is long and her eyes look gentle.
Pendensa is kind (meddlesome?) and careful toward everyone. She is a friend of the weak, basically. When a fight happens, she always mediates but she occasionally adds fuel to the fire. She loves children. She became famous when it was broadcasted on an NHK Special that she amused Ayumu with her funny face. She is hasty and cannot stay still without rocking when she gets nervous.
