The young heroine of Kiki's Delivery Service
Kiki is a young witch born to a human father and a mother who is a witch who works as a local herbalist. Having recently turned 13, Kiki moves away to the seaside city of Koriko with her pet cat Jiji to live independently for a year and hone her powers, as part of tradition among witches. While there, she starts up a delivery business for a bakery ran by Fukuo and his pregnant wife Osono, and eventually makes friends with some of the locals such as a young boy named Tombo and a local artist named Ursula.
As a witch, Kiki has the ability to fly through riding on her broom and she can communicate with Jiji. There is a point in the movie where she loses her witch powers due to facing inner doubt about herself while living on her own. She eventually regains her ability to fly and loses the ability to talk to Jiji all together, implying that she has matured as a person through her ordeals while living independently.
