Himeko Shirogane (白金姫子, Princess Morbucks in the English dub) is a classmate and on/off antagonist of the Powerpuff Girls Z.
She is in the same school as Momoko, Miyako, and Kaoru (the Powerpuff Girls Z). In this series, Himeko is 13 years old. Himeko was struck by black light, which makes her eyes, hair, and tights change. Once she is back to normal however, she does not recall any events that occurred while she was evil. She initially has a strong hatred for Momoko, Miyako, and Kaoru, trying to get them into trouble even when not evil. However, Himeko becomes friendlier toward them as time goes on. Himeko has an older sister named Miko (Duchess Morbucks in the English dub), who is their parents' favorite child. Unlike in the original cartoon series, both of her parents' faces are shown.
Unlike her 1998 series counterpart, Himeko does not specifically want to become a member of the main superhero team; rather, she merely wishes that people would pay more attention to her. This motive is caused by Himeko's parents favoring Miko, her sister, over Himeko herself. Thus, it can be said that this version of Princess is, to an extent, sympathetic.
She has a similar hairstyle as the original Morbucks, but it is brown. She has red-pinkish eyes with white stars. She is mostly seen wearing a puffy-shaped purple dress which has a bow on the waist and a green flower-like button. She wears dark red Mary Jane shoes and white tights. She has freckles and wears a crown. She has a band on her neck.
In her alter-ego form, she has red big afro hair, yellow spiral eyes and black tights.
Powers and Abilities
Her powers are based on her desire to be noticed by people.
She has a cat named Sapphire, whose scream causes Himeko's transformation (Also if her cat's voice is different then Princess will transform into a different creature with different abilities entirely).
In the episode "Friends In High Places", she has the ability to breathe in space.
