Nijiko Ōmitsu (大光虹子 Ōmitsu Nijiko) is one of the main Cures in Fairytale Pretty Cure!. She is a proud, fearless, and forthright 15-year-old girl whose father was the Royal Wizard of Fanciful Kingdom and her fairy partner, Kuiru's mentor. She is a third-year student at Minwa Academy who is known as the richest and most popular girl in school and was once the captain of all the sport teams until quit them before the start of the series so she could put all her effort and focus on being a Pretty Cure.
Nijiko's alter ego is Cure Enchant (キュアエンチャント Kyua Enchanto) the Story of Magic.
At the beginning, Nijiko always tries to come off as “cool” to everyone, but would actually fail and come off as scripted and, if she messes up or things don’t go her way, she will shut down and become very annoyed and embarrassed. Because of her blunt and fearless-nature, she can come off reckless and irresponsible at times and, especially, as a show-off. Nijiko is extremely independent who is always trying to stand alone during battles to try and prove her worth.
Nevertheless, as a Pretty Cure, she is respected for her confidence, dedication, and charismatic-nature. After befriending Imari and Tomoka, Nijiko learns to be more natural, relaxed, and show her more humorous and mischievous side. But, this doesn’t stop Nijiko from being extremely stubborn and rarely ever changes her mind about something or someone and is prone to falling back into showing-off.
Through her journey as a Pretty Cure, Nijiko is learning to lean on her teammates and let go of grudges and think ahead to the future.
Nijiko is an average, sun-kissed skinned girl with short light green hair with side bangs and a small braid in front of her left ear. She has lime green-coloured eyes. Her summer outfit consists of yellow-green overall-shorts, olive green t-shirt underneath, white vest, and knee-length brown boots. Her winter outfit consists of a yellow tank top, light brown leather jacket, light blue skinny jeans, and black converse shoes.
She wears her Minwa Academy school uniform with the lavender third-year neckerchief and traditional navy-blue stockings and brown penny loafers.
As Cure Enchant, her hair becomes soft red and much longer; waist-length braided that falls down her back with orange-coloured fancy hairpins wrapping a part of it in a bun adorned with white wings. Light green puffed sleeved shirt that falls down her shoulders detailed with yellow and orange, yellow Chelsea with a single green stripe, bright green sweetheart neckline tube top, green miniskirt, emerald green high heels, and golden star-shaped earrings.
Before the start of the series, Nijiko's hair was long and came past her shoulders.
Hikaru's Death and Juno Light's Stardom
Nijiko was only 5-years-old when her father, Hikaru, passed away. Her mother, Juri, was heartbroken and started writing and playing songs for her daughter. Songs about how much she loved him, how much she missed, and it was her way of saying goodbye to him. One day, Juri was discovered by an agent and she later became the famous singer-songwriter, Juno Light. But, as time went on, Nijiko started to feel like her mother has stopped singing for Hikaru and became resentful of her.
Nijiko was just starting her third-year at Minwa Academy when she met Kuiru. She had already moved out to her apartment complex and Yasuharu has already went to study abroad in France, but was still best friends with Rio Aramaki and her hair was till long. As Fanciful Kingdom was under attack by Kuroizado, Kuiru managed to escape to Yūkibarano through a portal to find Hikaru, his former mentor. Kuiru hoped Hikaru could help him find the Pretty Cure and defeat Kuroizado. However, since Hikaru passed away 10-years-prior, the portal took Kuiru to the only human that shares Hikaru's lineage which ends up being Nijiko, his daughter. The portal opens up into Nijiko's living room. Kuiru desperately searches for her father, but Nijiko explains that Hikaru has passed. Kuiru becomes overwhelmed that his only hope was gone and could feel the weight of the world on his shoulders to try and save his world and this one. Nijiko empathizes with Kuiru as she has always felt the pressure to be perfect and not let any of her friend down.
Becoming Cure Enchant
Nijiko becomes determined to help Kuiru by becoming the Pink Cure and saving her world and her late-father's homeland. At that moment, an Endingu attacks and Nijiko manages to transform into a Pretty Cure, but not the Pink Cure. Regardless, Nijiko, now as Cure Enchant manages to defeat and purify the Endingu and accepts her responsibilities as a Pretty Cure. She shows this by embracing her newfound heritage and binding a closer with her late-father by cutting her hair short to look more like him. After this time, Nijiko decided to put all her time and effort into being a Pretty Cure and goes in to quit all of her sports clubs at Minwa Academy. While Nijiko gets support from more of her friends and classmates, her best friend, Rio Aramaki, became resentful of her friend and their friendship ended.
Meeting Imari Suzukawa
When Imari Suzukawa, Tomoka Fukumoto, and Bukku decided to go to Daydream Gardens for some fun as new friends. At this time, Nijiko is working as a florist. It seems that Nijiko had planned to finally to reveal herself as Cure Enchant to Imari and Tomoka when an Endingu was going to attack. But, Nijiko never predicted that they were going to Daydream Gardens and Imari bumps into her when she gets lost in the Rose Maze. Nijiko is completely thrown off but tries to keep her composer only to be surprised that Imari doesn't seem to care about that and is a silly and clumsy girl herself. This always Nijiko to relax and continue on with her what she planned to say and gives Imari the nickname "Pink Rose" and Imari naming her "Daffodil-chan" before continuing on through the Rose Maze that later gets turned into the Endingu itself. Nijiko can finally get back on track and make a dramatic entrance and save Cure Fable and defeat the Endingu all by herself. She disappears before revealing herself to the two Cures.
Meeting Imari Suzukawa Again
This time, Nijiko planned to reveal her true identity as fellow Minwa Academy schoolmate to Imari and Tomoka. However, Nijiko stumbles upon Imari being taunted by Rio Aramaki, Sara Hīragi, and Fu Wakamiya and steps in to help her. Nijiko is delighted to hear that Imari remembers her from Daydream Gardens and that she made a memorable impression on her. However, her plans are wrecked by Tomoka and Yū Shiraishi. But, when the Endingu attacked, Nijiko is finally able to show to true identity and transforms in front of Cure Fable and Cure Mythical. Cure Enchant takes charge and defeats the Endingu, but is so focused on showing off that she doesn't notice that she hadn't purified it.
Dreams vs. Magic
There has always been an unspoken hostility Nijiko feels towards the Pink Cure, as she desired to be the leader and the "Best Cure" even before she met Imari. At the start when meeting Kuiru, Nijiko misunderstands the importance of dreams compared to magic. Nijiko believed that magic is stronger than dreams since magic is power and you can actually fight with magic. How can you fight an enemy with dreams? But, Kuiru explains that magic can't create dreams, that magic is like a shortcut in moving and changing things effortlessly while dreams take determination and hard work to achieve. Because the Pink Cure is the strongest of the chosen four, Nijiko became determined to be the Pink Cure. But, when she end up transforming into the Pretty Cure of Magic, Nijiko is visibly frustrated and disappointed. So, when Nijiko meets Imari, she has a sense of envy towards since Imari is the Pink Cure, but doesn't possess that qualities that Nijiko believed were more important. While Nijiko is proud and physically strong, Imari is clumsy, naive, and an unsuited leader from the team. However, Nijiko is soon put in her place when she begins to see how Imari is better than her in the fact that Imari doesn't believe she's better than. Or better than anyone for that matter. Imari doesn't care that the Pink Cure is meant to be the stronger, she believes that they are all equal as teammates and that Nijiko, Tomoka, Bukku, and Kuiru give her strength. For Imari, it doesn't matter if you are rich, poor, hold a high status, or are famous, she will retreat everyone as equal and show the same respect and energetic smile to anyone she meets. Learning this about Imari, Nijiko's hostility turns to respect and accepts her given role and respects Imari as the Pink Cure of Dreams.
