Raquel (ラケル Rakeru?) (or Rory in the English Dub Glitter Force Doki Doki) is a dog-like fairy mascot, one of the four main mascots in Doki Doki! Pretty Cure. He is very reliable, much like his partner, Cure Diamond. He ends his sentences with "~quel".
Raquel has soft blue fur with a large puffed tail and drooping dog ears, each with a blue diamond on the bottom. He has blue eyes with light blue curling wing-like lashes and soft pink cheeks. He wears a blue ribbon, with the tails hanging from the front, and on his head is a large blue bow with a heart medallion.
Raquel is very reliable, siding with his Cure even under pressure. He will often go out of his way to achieve a goal and tries his hardest to be a good fairy to Rikka. On the flipside, Raquel has been shown to be highly suspicious of other people's motivations, a trait which mirror's Rikka's own suspicion at times.
Raquel, Sharuru and Lance are first seen on top of Clover Tower while Mana and Cure Sword are faced with the crab Jikochuu. Later, he is seen with all three of them when Rikka is examining her Cure Lovead. Later in that same episode, he turns into a Lovely Commune for Rikka who transforms into Cure Diamond.
Hishikawa Rikka : Raquel is Rikka's transformation partner. He loves Rikka very much.
Raquel has the rare ability to fly, and can turn into a Commune to get Rikka to transform into Cure Diamond. In episode 29 he gains the ability to transform into human. Also he can transform in a chair, and it is unknown if he can take on more forms.
Raquel (ラケル) - His name is based on Rachel, the Queen of Diamonds in the traditional Paris court card game.
Rory - Anglicization of the Irish name Ruaidhrí, meaning "red king", which is ironic since he's blue, not red.
- Raquel is one of the many mascots who are capable of flight, the rest being Flappy (in his ball form), Choppy (in her ball form), Moop, Foop, Syrup, Chiffon, the Pickruns, Chypre, Coffret, Potpourri, Cologne, the Fairy Tones, Sharuru, Lance, Dabyi, Ai, Ribbon, Glasan, Pafu, Aroma, Ha-chan, Chikurun, Pekorin, Chourou, Kirarin, and Pikario.
- Raquel is the first dog-like mascot, followed by Pafu, Pekorin and Latte.
- He is the third blue fairy mascot, preceded by Flappy and Coffret and followed by Pikario.
- Raquel is the only fairy in the Doki Doki series not to wear a collar.
- He shares his voice actress with Midorikawa Keita.
- Raquel is the second mascot (following Flappy) to have a crush on another person or fairy. In this case, Raquel seems to be in love with Yashima Chihiro from episode 36.
- He is older than Sharuru, but in human form he looks younger.
- This is possibly due to his slow growth and hard-going lifestyle.
