Himura Akiko (緋村明子 Hi-mura Akiko?) is the main protagonist and lead Cure in the Earth Defense Pretty Cure! series. She is the younger sister of Himura Noya. She is a first year transfer student at Kawai High School and member of the Defense Club. Her family also runs Kurotama Karaoke.
Her Cure form is Cure Scarlet (キュアスカーレット Kyua Sukāretto?). She controls the power of Holy Light.
Out of the 5 girls, Akiko is the shortest in terms of height. She has short, fluffy blonde hair with bangs parted onto either sides and a portion of her hair sliding down to the center of her forehead just above her line of sight. Her eyes are reddish brown.
Akiko wears a long-sleeved white shirt, a red jacket with a white hood and a light blue two-layered skirt. She also wears red sneakers and black knee-high socks.
Her school uniform is a yellow sweater with white high-lights, a white shirt with a sailor suit design cuff, a black skirt, ankle high white socks and dark brown shoes.
As Cure Scarlet, Akiko's hair length stays the same but is noticeably shinier. Her eye colour changes to red. She wears a white vest with frilled sleeves that have red, flipped up cuffs with base extensions in the form of a frilly six coat tails which have a red underside, a red bow just below her neck that has a small, red, heart-shaped jewel with wings, embedded into it, a pair of white silk gloves, a white skirt which have red lace bordered at the base, a pair of white boots where the upper part is flipped upside down on either side, which are red in colour and have another heart shaped jewel embedded into it.
Innocent, gullible, cheerful and happy-go-lucky, Akiko is a freshman that enrols into Kawai High School, and the newest member to the Defense Club. She lacks a bit of common sense and seems completely unfazed by strange events. She also has a living fascination with cute and cuddly objects. Though Akiko is very straightforward towards problems, she is always awkward or tactless leading the situation to resolve itself. She is very determined and has a knack for encouraging others. And, her unorthodox thinking, while not the best for her grades assists her with defeating the Loveless.
Akiko works at her family's karaoke shop Kurotama Karaoke but is often just lazing around. Her parents pasted away when she was young and is under her older sister Noya's custody since a young age. She enrolled into Kawai High School, and later joined the Defense Club.
Himura Noya - Noya is Akiko's older sister whom graduated from Kawai High School, and runs Kurotama Karaoke. When their parents died Noya had to take care of Akiko while in high school, abandoning her dream to be a chef. Noya loves Akiko dearly and they both share a close relationship together.
Wombat "Ai" - Akiko's partner, mascot and the prince of the Love Kingdom. Akiko began to have a crush on Wombat once she saw his human since the first time they met, although she didn't understand her feelings at first. She loves to hug and cuddle Wombat a lot much to his dismay. They are shown together in many episodes while Wombat slowly came to fall in love with her, which is evident in episode 20 when they went on a date.
Sakurai Maki - Maki is a senior in the Defense Club, and one of Akiko's close friends. Akiko describes Maki as a kind and strong willed, and thinks that such qualities will make her a good Pretty Cure. Out of the 5 Cures, Akiko and Maki resemble each other the most in terms of personality, and thus often share the same opinions and get excited over the same things.
Amachi Rio - Rio is a senior in the Defense Club, and one of Akiko's close friends. Though Rio is usually focused on money she enjoys spending time with Akiko, and is bewildered by many of her unexpected actions from time to time. Akiko describes Rio as a princess not only for her wealth but her kindness and maturity, and loves to play with her.
Mizushima Umi - Umi is a senior in the Defense Club, and like Suzu, she met Akiko at Kurotama Karaoke. Akiko respects Umi and thinks of her as a responsible and clever girl. She also admires Umi for her bravery and skills at sports and her talent for getting high marks in test. She was thus extremely happy when Umi became a Cure, and proclaimed that she really likes Umi.
Kazesawa Suzu - Suzu is a senior in the Defense Club, and like Umi, she met Akiko at Kurotama Karaoke. Akiko enjoys eating Suzu's curry and feels at ease when she's around the latter. Suzu also shows genuine concern for Akiko whenever she gets hurt.
Satomi Kyoko - Akiko admires Kyoko and cares about her. Despite the small feud between the Student Council and Defense Club the two managed to become very close friends. Akiko often asks Kyoko for advice and seems to be very attached to her. They are also usually seen drinking tea together in the courtyard. However, once Akiko finds out that Kyoko is actually Dark Argent, she is highly affected and devastated.
Chitose Chieko - Though they aren't exactly close, Akiko is concerned about Chieko and wishes to become friends with her. Unbeknownst to others except Kyoko, Akiko actually wants to help fix Chieko's relationship with Suzu and Umi, and tries to cheer Chieko up when she was down. They are shown to have a friendly relationship as Akiko pulled Chieko around the entire arcade, inviting her to play the different games with him, as seen in the OVA.
Mako Nami - Nami doesn't think highly of Akiko and refers to her as "Fluff Ball-chan".
Kosho Akiyuki and Kosho Haruyuki - Envious of Akiko because of her relationship with Noya and being Cure Scarlet, Akiyuki and Haruyuki strive to eliminate her and express jealousy towards the latter. Akiko, however, is completely oblivious to this and treats both of them with kindness.
