History

Downfall of Fanciful Kingdom

In Fanciful Kingdom, Bukku was born without magic and second-born prince. He grew up in the shadows of his brother, Kuiru, and felt that he was never need as a prince and was always bulled for being born abnormal. One day, when a group of classmates were making fun of Bukku, a wizard steps in and saves Bukku and introduces himself as Kuroizado and the two become close friends. Kuroizado shows him the art of dark magic and the two work together to master the arts, but when King Sutori and Queen Peiji discover the forbidden magic, they banish Kuroizado. Bukku is furious, but overjoyed when his friends returned and hopes to make amends. Bukku lets him into the castle where Kuroizado reveals his true motives and destroys Fanciful Kingdom. When Bukku is hiding from being captured by the Dark Charm Knights, he finds his father making a portal for his mother and brother to escape to find the Pretty Cure. In that moment, the Dark Charm Knight discover them and Bukku pushed his family out of the way and goes through the portal; abandoning his family and allowing his parents to be captured.

Meeting Imari Suzukawa

Bukku lands in Yūkibarano and collides head-on with Imari. Unaware that the Dark Charm Knights were sent after him by Kuroizado to retrieve him before he can discover all four Pretty Cure. But, when Imari interferes with their plans and vows to protect the the fairy prince. With this, Imari unlocks her PreHeartBook and transforms into Cure Fable.

Meeting Tomoka Fukumoto

When Imari accidentally collides with the Student Council Vice President and both of their book bags gets swapped. Bukku ends up in the hands of Tomoka. But, when Bukku notices that she also ends up taking Imari's PreHeartBook, he realizes that Imari doesn't have the ability to transform into Cure Fable and defend herself against the Dark Charm Knights. Bukku and Tomoka takes a ride in one of her limousines to find Imari in time. During this moment, Bukku and Tomoka connect with each other. So, when the Endingu attacks them and tries to snatch Bukku, Tomoka puts herself in danger to try and save him. The act of bravery unlocked Tomoka's PreHeartBook and transforms into Cure Mythical.

Relationships

Imari Suzukawa - Imari is the first Cure that Bukku meets. He lives with her and goes everywhere she goes. Bukku gets easily irritated with her when it comes to her clumsiness and overly agreeable nature. He has a habit of calling her idiot, stupid, or doofus. However, Bukku secretly admires Imari's determination and claims that she is the reason why he believes they can save their worlds. In Episode 19, Bukku called Imari by her first name for the first time, cementing their true bond and friendship.

Tomoka Fukumoto - Tomoka is the second Cure that Bukku meets. Bukku slips a few insults here and there like he does with Imari, but he will also always lift an ear to what is on her mind and shows to have a more emotional relationship with Tomoka. They can both easily lower their guard when they are around each other. In Episode 14, Bukku decides to stay with Tomoka at her mansion to feel more at home.

Kuiru - Kuiru is Bukku's elder brother. They seem to be complete opposites of each other and don't get always very well. In Episode 16, it is revealed that they use to be close when they were little. However, Bukku grew hostile when Kuiru started spending less time with him in preparation for becoming the future king of Fanciful Kingdom. Bukku is also extremely jealous that his brother can fly and is highly skilled in magic, things that he isn't capable of. By Episode 24, the two brothers manage to see eye-to-eye with each other and let go of the grudges and animosity.

Kuroizado - before the start of the series, Bukku and Kuroizado were close friends. They had a father-son kind of relationship. Bukku looked up to Kuroizado and greatly admired the kind wizard. They understood each other and shares secrets. But, after Kuroizado was banished for using dark magic, Bukku was outraged, yet overjoyed when he return. Only for him to be back-stabbed and Kuroizado destroys Fanciful Kingdom. Now, Bukku's admiration towards the wizard has grown bitter and no longer sees him as a friend.
