The pink-haired spirit with turquoise skin is the universe’s messenger to spread the importance of protecting the environment. She travels in space and tends to the planets in need and restore them to their former glory. 

Her Lowbrow style of creating reflected the influences of Japanese manga, American cartoon and street culture.
