Hime is a spoiled fashionista who became a Cure to save the Blue Sky Kingdom. Despite her brave decision, she is easily scared and tries to escape from danger in the middle of fights. Because of her shyness, she never had friends until meeting Aino Megumi. Hime is also stubborn and headstrong, and can be impatient and determined, as shown in episode 23, when she tries to persuade Iona to instantly accept their offer to join their team. She can also be forceful and at times selfish, once hurrying the girls back to the embassy due to being hungry.
Hime is often shown to have a wild imagination of sorts. In one instance, she imagines that Cure Lovely is splitting up the Happiness Charge Pretty Cure team in favor of a new partnership with Cure Fortune.HCPC20She also imagines Yuko, who was taking care of Phantom, hugging Phantom romantically when she eavesdrops on the two.HCPC31

- Omori Yuko: They met at the park when she was depressed. They eventually became friends in episode 4. Yuko loves to give Hime her homemade honey candy to make her happy.

- Blue: Her master who always advises and instructs her. She appears to have a rather friendly or sibling-like relationship with him.
- Hikawa Iona: They seem to have known each other prior to the beginning of the series. Before episode 22, Fortune held a grudge against her and refused to do anything with her. In episode 20, Iona reveals that Hime opened Axia, which had Maria get captured by Phantom. She even goes as far as saying Hime doesn't deserve to be a Cure. Despite all that, Princess gives Iona the PreCards she collected as an apology for what she did, putting Iona's wish to save her sister over her own wish to save her kingdom. After finally defeating Phantom, she apologizes for her cold actions towards Hime and agrees to join the team. In episode 23, the two of them formed a stronger bond after going on a shopping trip and defeating Saiarks. Hime told Iona she was lured into opening Axia because of a voice she overheard from it, which made Iona regret taking her rage out on Hime.

- Prince Zeke: She met Prince Zeke in the movie. Hime fell in love with him, but those feelings were crushed when she found out he was a doll and forms a relationship with Tsumugi.
