Father Akira
Mother Pan
Pal means "friends". When she was a baby, her face was strongly beaten and her upper baby tooth was broken. The top of her left eye became swollen. Although her face and figure look like Ayum, who has the same father, we can discriminate them because Pal always moves acrobatically.
Pal is full of self-reliance, perhaps because she was reared with an unusual method, lying down with her, of her mother, Pan. She is the very boisterous, and makes it a rule to join the others' play. She also likes to play to make Ai angry and to escape from her. She loves to exercise. She can do what nobody else can do, such as twisting her body and jumping to a rope, but sometime fails to do it and falls. When she has some disagreeable experience, she screams loudly, but she immediately continues as if nothing had happened.
