Within her group, Aguri is the shortest and youngest member. She has burgundy eyes and long brown hair with her bangs pulled back. She normally wears a sleeveless red dress with white stripes around the bottom of the skirt and a white neckline with a ribbon at the center. She also wears magenta sneakers and white socks. During winter, she wears a red jacket with a white collar, along with a black skirt and burgundy boots.
As Cure Ace, Aguri grows taller than the other Cures and she wears pink makeup. Her eyes turn magenta and her thicker, longer hair bright red, worn in one thick curl with two thinner curled segments, forelocks, and bangs brushed aside. She wears a gold pointed hair piece with a winged bow adorned by a heart and white fabric, accenting her gold earrings and necklace. She wears a red and black scalloped dress with white pointed petticoat. Over the dress is a white jacket with red detail lining and pale pink sleeve cuff. On the chest is a gold heart with two, pale pink heart-shaped fabric, while sewn to the back is a large pale pink bow with a cape-like tail. She also gets white feathered wrist pieces with red straps and matching colored knee-length boots.
Aguri is composed, calm, and wise beyond her young years. She can be strict and expects others to follow the rules, so she can appear to be bossy and accidentally say hurtful things. However, she has an appreciation for good food, most notably sweets; such as a peach roll and Sebastian’s cake, both of which she described in great detail, and how she was a regular of a restaurant ever since being "drawn" in by their anmitsu.
She is known for speaking elegantly, such as saying "Bravo," when she eats something she thinks tastes good, and "Adieu" when departing.
Ai: A fairy-like baby who summons Aguri’s Cure Loveads to help her transform. Ai is also later revealed to be a part of Princess Marie Ange.
Madoka Mari: Aguri's grandmother. Aguri would do anything to protect her.
Morimoto Eru: Aguri's schoolmate who she always protects against the bullies that make fun of her for her frizzy hair.
Regina: She is Aguri's rival and technically her sister. The two were destined to fight each other until they decide to team up in order to save their father.
Madoka (円?): 円 can mean circle or yen, the latter being the Japanese currency.
Aguri (亜久里?): Aguri is a name from the ancient times of Japan when male children were considered more important than female. It was normally used by parents who had many daughters but no sons, therefore was an incantation towards gods or Buddha, with the intent of having the named daughter be the last female child in the family.
Her dub name Natalie comes from a Late Latin word that means "Christmas day".
Her dub surname, Miller, means somebody who owns or works at a grain mill.
Aguri used to be Cure Ace and lived together with Ai in Trump Kingdom. She decided to fight the Selfish King after finding out that he was going to go to Earth too. However, as she fought, she failed, causing her and Ai to separate. After this, Cure Ace went to Earth as a baby. Mari finds her, who reverted to the young age of ten. Meanwhile, Ai was imprisoned in an egg.DDPC27
Saving the Cures
After Regina is brainwashed, she starts attacking the Cures. The Cures get easily defeated and de-transformed. Then Regina is about to fire her final attack, but Cure Ace's attack stops it. After this happened, Cure Ace introduces herself much to everyone's shock.DDPC22
Regina and Cure Ace start fighting. After Regina notices that Cure Ace has amazing power, Mana starts to cry about Regina. Cure Ace then almost purifies Regina with Ace Shot. When Cure Ace saw Mana crying, she took her Lovead, and tells her that she would only give it back once Mana learns how to not cry even for a situation like this. Mana becomes very disappointed as Cure Ace then suddenly leaves.DDPC23
During the festival, Mana, who is taking care of Ai, thought she sees Regina. Mana then started following Regina. Running into an alley Mana then realizes that it was just a mirage but behind her, Aguri appears but does not tell Mana her name. Ai comes up to her, and Mana sees how Ai was with her. Aguri then tells Mana to watch out because bad things are going to happen to her friends, which surprises Mana. Meanwhile, Leva and Gula had summoned Jikochuus, which were destroying the festival, and the other Cures are badly defeated. Seeing how Mana becomes brave for her friends, Aguri then gives Mana her Lovead back.
Suddenly, Aguri with the help of Ai, transforms into Cure Ace. She then pairs up with Cure Heart. They start fighting and they easily defeat the Jikochuus. Then Cure Heart purifies one of them with, Heart Shoot, while Cure Ace used Ace Shot. After Leva and Gula leave, Cure Ace tells the Cures that they have to be prepared for more of this and quickly leaves, surprising them.DDPC23
The History of Aguri and Regina Revealed
One year prior to the season, Princess Marie Ange fell ill to a terminal disease. Only the Eternal Golden Crown, one of the Three Sacred Treasures, had the knowledge to save her. However, the crown was being used to imprison the evil sealed away by the legendary Pretty Cure. Desperate to save his daughter, the king of the Trump Kingdom stole the crown but was consumed by the evil and transformed into the Selfish King. Unable to fight her father, Princess Marie Ange broke her heart into two parts: The part that loves her father, which is her bad side, and the part that wants to protect her people, which is her good side. Ange's body was then transformed into an egg which would later be born as Ai. The good side of Ange's heart was reborn as Aguri and was sent to earth while the bad side went back to the Selfish King and was reborn as Regina. DDPC45
Ai no kirifuda! Kyua Ēsu!
Cure Ace (キュアエース Kyua Ēsu?) is Aguri's alter ego. Cure Ace represents love. As Cure Ace, Aguri has limited time to be in this form, five minutes at most. Later, by gaining the knowledge of her history from the Eternal Golden Crown, there's no limit for her to stay in this form. In Glitter Force Doki Doki, her introduction is "'A' for absolutely fabulous! I'm Glitter Ace!"
To transform to Cure Ace, Aguri uses the Love Eyes Palette, and the power of Ai, who produces a Lovead to transform. Aguri places her Cure Lovead on it, grabs the make-up stick and taps the Royal Crystals placed on the palette. She creates her eye shadow and the heart in the middle flashes three times and then forms a shape of a golden bow that spins and starts the transformation. Madoka appears in a flash spinning around and growing up a bit, then creating flames that ignite her. Her costume appears from the flames and she introduces herself. She seems to be the only Cure that ages during transformation.
