Season of Blossoms: Growing Up

As Sofia was praising herself to be the prettiest among all of the invited guests at Mia's birthday party, Qistina and Zara sheepishly avoided looking at the latter as to prevent embarrassment. Noticing Mia coming to the party in her birthday dress, Qistina, along with everybody at the party got amazed by Mia's beauty.

Keeping You Waiting: Time Management

When Qistina was walking towards the school entrance with Zara, the two noticed Sofia and happily waved to her, with the latter running to the two excitedly and gave them a big hug.

Dreams Take Flight: Ambition

Getting interviewed by Joni, Qistina was with Sofia and Zara and each of them told Joni about their ambition (which was Joni's question). Qistina excitedly said that her ambition is to become a dancer.

A Class Effort: Leadership

Qistina could be seen with Zara when she volunteered to join the design group. She was also seen telling Zara that her costume is a fluffy fox.

On Our Own: Self-Reliance

Spick & Span: Cleanliness

Memory Mishap: Road Safety

When an amnesiac Joni asked Miss Miyuki where is her seat, Qistina was seen puzzled alongside Sofia and Zara.


Qistina has medium-long yellowish gold hair tied into two pigtails with the rest of her hair gathered behind her back. She has amber eyes and fair skin. Like the other characters, her outfit changes throughout the comics regularly.


Described by Emilia, Qistina is a nice, cheerful and bubbly individual, but because of her mingling with the snooty and arrogant Sofia, she and Zara inherited some of her negative traits and was pictured as a self-centered person like Sofia.

As the series developed, Qistina was shown to be more open-minded and helpful to her fellow schoolmates and friends after Sofia had a positive change in her personality. Qistina was also shown to be a rather forgivable person, this trait of her was displayed when despite her arguments she had with Sofia and ended their friendship, Qistina was willing to forgive her and helped Sofia to get rid of her vanity.
