Main Characters

Ahiru- This Anime starts with the bright female middle school figure. Her characteristic are clumsy, clueless, confused yet is considerate and thinks about others before herself. Her physical characteristics are pink long hair let down in a braid with messy yet sweet bangs framing her childish face. Her body is thin and long but strong and fine. Her secret is that she is actually a duck. A normal duck from a pond that had fallen for a prince. She was given a magical pendant so she can transform into a girl. But the pendant has one more special power it also turns her into the beautiful, graceful prima ballerina. When she is on stage retrieving a heart shard for her prince Mytho she is graceful as a swan. But in her ballet class most say she is lacking any grace whatsoever but she never fails to show her true self through dance.

Senior Mytho- This young handsome character also participates in ballet along with Duck. And he is also the prince Duck dreams about everyday. He has white soft hair that circles his perfect face while his limbs are lively yet swing like branches on a willow tree. Mytho is the Prince from the story 'The Prince and the Raven' he is the magical prince that gets his heart taken out and the one that stopped the story from it's tragic ending. Though the prince did loose his heart he never lost the will to save those smaller then him from danger. Without thinking twice, thousands of times he has risked his life for others. Usually his handsome face is dull and em but emotionless but with his feelings back he begins to smile again. In the end of his story he shows what a brave and generous prince he truly is.

Fakir- Fakir is Mytho's loyal knight. His soul purpose is to protect Mytho at any cost. Though his figure is robust and he never let's his guard down when he is with Mytho when he is alone he is both generous and kind. Even though he dislikes Princess Tutu for trying to regain the Princes heart inside he knows it's the right thing. Later in the series he discovers he is the descendent of Drosselmeyer. The one and only weakness is fear that his life will come to end like the knight in the story. But weakness or not he uses his gift with stories and brings this twisting tale to a truly magical ending.
