Kawarino Fullbody.jpg

Kawarino is Desparaia's secretary. He conveys her intentions and orders to other Nightmares, and report to her on the missions. Most of the other Nightmares fear him. He is modeled after a chameleon and often uses his mimicking ability to deceive others.


Kawarino appears in Human Form as a sneaky business man who looks like he is always scheming something. In monster form he looks like a combination of a demon and an actual chameleon.


In the final battle in the mysterious colosseum he reveals his true form and strength beating down Pretty Cure 5 quite easily until they began to even things out. He then uses multiple black Kowaina mask's in their black card form and sticks them all over the surface of his body causing him to grow even more massive in size but was still defeated.

After Desparaia stopped her battle with Pretty Cure 5 Kawarino appeared again in normal size to attack Pretty Cure again and convince Desparaia to keep fighting when Bloody reached up from the basement to drag him down with him.
