Unlike most children of her age, Emiru doesn't like being looked after. Instead, she is very overprotective and has a strong desire on being a heroine, which is why she admires the Pretty Cures. However, she often gets carried away when it means protecting others, which can make her act like a troublemaker and bewilders others due to her exaggerating actions. In spite of her flaws, she is still a caring companion for her friends and will try her best to cheer them up, especially towards Ruru.
On the other hand, she not only has a gifted vocal, but also a passion for singing and playing the guitar, despite her brother's initial unsupportive behavior. Besides, she has a tendency of saying "~nano desu" ("I say") at the end of her sentences to emphasize her points.
Anyway, owing to her young age, she still has many traits of a child, such as always sleeping with her stuffed toy. Another example is she won’t believe other’s statements until she witnesses actual evidence, like how she doubted Ruru being an android in spite of the rest of her friends’ descriptions until the latter proved it. HuPC18She has an emotional side as well, which was surfaced when realizing that Ruru has decided to return to the future and loses her voice as this fact hits her really hard, until her brother and her friends encourage and support, helping her to face and express her inner feelings.HuPC41

Introduction and Dream of being a Hero
Emiru first showed up in episode 9 where she met Hana, Saaya and Homare while being on a hiking trip with her classmates. Throughout the trip, Emiru shows to be prepared for any kind of dangers and it is soon revealed that Emiru has always been the kind of person who wants to prevent others of being hurt, even if that results in others disliking her. During the course of the trip, Emiru, Hana and Hugtan get separated from the group and end up in a deep pit. While being trapped inside the pit, Hana and Emiru get hung up in a little chat, where Emiru admits that even though she might want to help, she usually causes troubles for others. Their talk is interrupted by Hugtan, who starts to cry due to the lack of food, but luckily, Emiru managed to calm down the baby by singing a song for her. The song Emiru sings for Hugtan helps Homare and Saaya to locate the lost girls and help them out of the pit, just in time when Papple created an Oshimaida of the bunch of monkeys that previously have stolen the Melody Tambourine. After the fight, the four, Hana, Saaya, Homare and Emiru, manage to get out of the forest and reunite with Emiru’s class. Emiru then apologizes for having caused that much trouble, and Homare and Saaya admit that they wouldn’t have found any of them if it wasn’t for Emiru’s singing. Happily surprised over being called a hero, Emiru thanks Hana for the many unexpected events they encountered during the hiking trip.
Following this episode and the events in episode 11, where Cure Yell saves Kotori and her, Emiru starts on working to become a hero herself, which later on results in her meeting Ruru in episode 15. Emiru and Ruru first meet on the streets as Ruru was on her way to buy some eggs from a local store. Emiru, following her ideas to become a hero, tries her best to protect Ruru from any upcoming danger and even introduces herself as Cure Emile to her. Ruru, who quickly realizes that Emiru is not a real Pretty Cure, continues walking as if nothing ever happened, but Emiru decides to follow her in order to provide her some warning about what could happen when you’re not paying enough attention. Then later, at the supermarket, as Ruru got the eggs she was supposed to buy, Emiru tried to help as many people as possible, which, however, resulted in her not being as helpful as she wants to be. Due to being unable to follow her dreams, Emiru is a little let down by herself, which soon changes when Ruru points out that, despite her attempts to help may have been a failure, Emiru did manage to make everyone smile. Happy to hear such nice words, Emiru decides to invite Ruru to her house, but before getting there, Emiru asks Ruru to keep the whole hero thing as a secret as she doesn’t want to worry her parents. At her parents’ house, Emiru and Ruru are welcomed by Emiru’s parents and her older brother, whom she tries to get away from rather quickly. She apologizes to Ruru for her parents’ behavior, but Ruru is more interested in the instruments in her room, as she has never heard anything like music before. Shocked by this confession, Emiru shows Ruru her most precious instrument - the guitar - and plays a little song for Ruru. Ruru feels touched by the song Emiru plays for her and is overwhelmed by the situation. However, the moment is interrupted as Masato asks Emiru about the guitar sound he has heard coming from her room, pointing out that girls should only play instruments that are made for girls, such as a violin or the piano. Yet, what Emiru didn’t expect was Ruru standing up for her, telling Masato that he can not determine what Emiru likes or dislikes. Surprised by being told off, Masato retreats and Emiru and Ruru notice the appearance of an Oshimaida. Then, even though the situation might be dangerous, Emiru decides to head there, to see if there is anyone she can help. At the scene of the attack, Cure Emile is ready to help despite being told that she is not a real Pretty Cure. Yet, Emiru claims that she cannot just stay behind and watch while others get hurt. Soon after saying these words, Emiru spots a little child who got caught up in fear and couldn’t find the strength to run away, so Emiru takes the initiative and saves the child with her own powers. Even though being later saved by Cure Étoile herself. After the fight, and after being recognized by Cure Yell for the good job she did, Emiru admits that she was horrified by the situation. But Ruru again comforts her by saying that she had done something similar before. Thinking that she has found someone who shares the same passions as she does, Emiru wants to become friends with Ruru, who, however, gladly refuses to.
