Bobo is a character in Love Nikki. She is a girl from Lilith Kingdom who befriends Nikki at the beginning of her journey through Miraland. She travels with Nikki and Momo and shows them around while introducing them to the customs, rules, and culture of Miraland.
|“||Why are girls in Lilith so inconceivably cute? Because they spent their childhood in the fairy-tale kingdom, right? Bobo's favorite one-piece dress is the one her mother gave her on her birthday. The orange and green perfectly complimented Bobo's flaxen hair. The decorative bow made her girdle look especially cute. The layers of lotus petals and cake tails were also essential!
And also, don't forget the most important thing - the cutest and heartwarming smile!
— Bobo's description in the Time Diary
Bobo has fair skin and soft blue eyes. Her pale brown hair is about shoulder length, with most of it pulled into twin braids held by green and orange ribbons to match her hair clips, and tiny daisy flowers. Her straightened bangs are split on the left corner, and she has short forelocks partially covering her ears.
Bobo normally wears a frilly green and orange dress with white ruffled accents and daisy ornaments to match her ribbon ornament and bracelet. She wears cream colored shoes and a pair of pale pink and white vertical striped stockings.
Bobo is a lively, chivalrous, and outspoken girl with a sweet, compassionate nature. She is hot-blooded and has a temper if someone should make fun of her or comment on something she is sensitive about. She is also very emotional, and high-strung when it comes to her appearance or lack of a love life. She is also very supportive towards her friends, and will always step up to defend them when things get serious.
Deep inside, she has a strong desire to protect the people she cares about, especially after her father died in front of her while she was young. However, due to the circumstances of her life, she finds herself misled and unable to keep her friends and family out of danger.
Bobo celebrated her fourteenth birthday during this year. From her mother, she got a dress, Candy Heart, as a birthday gift in a box with candies, as well as matching accessories. Her father, a busy man, was able to catch a train back to celebrate with her, but he didn't have time to buy her anything. Despite his best efforts to cheer her up by dressing up as a giant stuffed bear, this still upset her, and she cried until he promised to make it up to her. She also remarked on her mother's homemade birthday cake, wondering if her family was poor now. During her party, her father took out an old drawing Bobo had done of their family when she was little, which annoyed her until he insisted he still liked it.
Unknown to her and her family, two shadows were spying on her party, trying to decide whether she was good enough to pass a test. It is suggested that this test resulted in what happened next.
A month later, Bobo's father received a task to deliver a precious design in a remote, mountainous part of Pigeon. Bobo, a photography student, begged to come with him so that she could take pictures of the snowpeaks. Even though she had been to the mountains before, Bobo also believed in a legend saying that if she saw a white bear in the Renieve Snowpeaks, she would find true love in the next year. Her father agreed to let her come, as long as she stayed with him the whole time.
In the mountains, Bobo and her father rented a snowmobile and drove deep into the mountains. Bobo fell asleep part of the way through, feeling cold. A black snowmobile appeared out of nowhere before they could reach the client and braked in front of them, causing Bobo's father to steer out of the way, and the two of them fell off. A strange man got off the black snowmobile and demanded the design from Bobo's father. When her father didn't give it over, the man took it from him. When they tried to get the bag and design back, the man just kicked her father.
Her father demanded it back, and the stranger immediately pulled out a gun and shot him. Bobo ran over to her father, unable to process what had just happened. She was stunned that the stranger could use violence, but he said he didn't care about the Blood Curse. Before her father could die, he pulled a stuffed white bear from his bag and gave it to her to reference the legend she believed in, apologizing that it was stained with his blood.
Bobo ran to confront the stranger, and he pulled out his gun to shoot her too. However, a white dove came out of the barrel instead, and vines appeared from the snow to constrict the stranger. Noah appeared then and bowed before giving Bobo back her father's bag and taking her home.
Noah gave Bobo a dove in a birdcage and told her that if she wanted to know more, she could release it. A month later, she found that she was still upset and decided to release the dove. The next day Noah appeared before her and told her that they were going to go meet someone who could answer all of her questions.
Sometime before Nikki arrived in Miraland, Bobo was given a mission to involve her in Miraland's disputes. The order was given to her by a mysterious figure that only presented themself in silhouette, whom Bobo calls the "Lord".
Bobo approached Nikki after her competition against Aron shortly after arriving in Miraland. Expressing interest in her style, Bobo asked Nikki where she was from and why she came to Wheat Field. Upon learning that Nikki didn't know anything about Miraland, Bobo introduced herself and offered her a tour around town. Together, they assisted Lunar in retrieving her guqin design from Mela. Mela revealed that she is part of the organization known as the Iron Rose Stylist Legion, and Bobo explained their origin and reputation to Nikki.
When Nikki decided to go to Lilith Kingdom, Bobo accompanied her and showed her around Cicia, where they watched the performance of the December Troupe and helped the lead actress, Sofia, retrieve the Star Sea when it was stolen. Bobo took her to Wintermount for the Designer's Tea Party, where they met again with Lunar and got to know Bai Jinjin, Zhong Lizi, and Kimi, as well as a number of other designers and stylists. Bobo continued to accompany Nikki and support her mission of becoming a great stylist as they traveled through the Cloud Empire and attempted to help Lunar again. Throughout this time, Bobo lamented not having a boyfriend yet. She also showed great interest in Prime Minister Nidhogg, whom they met at Long Street at the base of Mount Mango.
They continued on to the Fantasy Styling Contest in Royal City, where Nidhogg staged a revolution against Royce, Queen Nanari, and the Lilith government. In the aftermath, Bobo was clearly distressed by the prospect that Nidhogg had done such a thing. As they traveled to the Republic of Wasteland to seek the Miracle Scroll, she continued to deny that he had done such a thing at all, or at least without a reason.
After some time in Wasteland, Bobo, Nikki, and Momo received news about Nidhogg's attack on Cloud City and turned around in order to save Lunar. They traveled by train nearly the whole way there, and arrived just in time to see Nidhogg kill Lunar.
Bobo was very upset by this, but stressed that Nikki must fight Nidhogg. When Momo asked her how Nikki is supposed to do anything when even Lunar couldn't save herself, Bobo explained the Blood Curse, which weakened anybody that uses force against somebody else. When Nidhogg said that the Blood Curse was fake and only brought about a false peace, Bobo argued with him, referencing his past and asking him if he really felt his victory at the Designer's Tea Party all those years ago was false.
Nikki managed to finally beat Nidhogg with the assistance of the Dawnblade thanks to the Iron Rose's sudden appearance, and Nidhogg withdrew his troops from Cloud City. Bobo, Nikki, and the Iron Rose traveled to Lor River City, where they met Kimi and decided to go to Welton with her to figure out what the situation was with the Apple Federation Apparel Group.
Bobo accompanied Kimi, Nikki and Momo to Welton, where she witnessed the theft of White Blossom by Reid and the murder of Charles by Shade. When Reid kissed Kimi at the White Blossom Banquet, Bobo offered to go berate him for her, and worried for her reputation.
She went with them next to Losol, where they went together to the League Tyr outpost due to Orlando believing it was too unsafe to leave them alone. She seemed excited about the prospect, but when they tried to escape without being noticed, she tripped over some racks. Shade was alerted to their presence by the noise, and aimed his gun at Bobo, but Orlando managed to divert his attention, Nikki grabbed Bobo, and they escaped.
Bobo, along with Nikki, Momo, and Kimi, was taken in by Azula at the Losol Church. However, Bobo was shaken by the gun at the League Tyr Outpost, and decided to leave alone partway through the night. She left only a note saying she was returning to Lilith Kingdom for something important. Momo woke up to see her leaving, and chased her out the doorway of the church. She gave him one last hug before leaving. Nikki was distraught by her departure, and though she wanted to find Bobo, she was drugged by the food in Losol Church the next morning and was taken to North Kingdom.
Sunflower in Long Night Edit
Bobo returned to Royal City, Lilith Kingdom, feeling melancholy. She saw a white dove fly around her, take the ribbon from her dress, and fly away. It put the ribbon into a box, and when she opened the box, a puppet jumped out along with confetti. Noah appeared and held the ribbon, and she laughed at his prank. He asked her about her journey with Nikki, but she avoided his question by asking him about his own travels.
While in Royal City, she went to a church called St Cheryl, where she met with the mysterious figure again. Though her mission to involve Nikki in Miraland's disputes was incomplete, she asked for another assignment, but the figure insisted that she take a break. Unsure what to do next and filled with worries and doubts about Nikki, Bobo decided to go back to Galevilla and visit her mother. To her dismay, though, her mother seemed to have disappeared, and all of Bobo's letters to her were still in the mailbox.
Noah surprised her by appearing then with balloons, but Bobo was too upset over her mother's disappearance to be cheered by his presence. When she told him what had happened, he deduced that her mother was most likely safe due to the lack of blood or sign of a struggle at the house. Despite agreeing that he had a point, she still couldn't hold back her tears.
A voice, which unbeknownst to her belonged to the True King, began to speak to her in her head, berating her for not being able to protect the people around her and for losing both of her parents, which upset her even more. Upon discovering Noah hadn't been able to hear the voice, Bobo quickly acted as though she hadn't heard anything and resolved herself to be able to find her mother.
Bobo and Noah went back to Royal City, and Bobo went to ask the Lord about her mother. However, the Lord told Bobo that though they had looked into the matter previously, they hadn't been able to find her mother. Bobo was not satisfied by this answer, and decided that she couldn't rely on the Lord anymore. Noah agreed to help her find her mother.
Noah took her on a mission to find the person responsible, and they went off the clues of an old woman living in the outskirts of Royal City. After searching for several days, Noah insistent that they were following the right person, Bobo concluded that they were not on the right track. Noah eventually admitted that he knew her mother was safe, and could even show her using his magic, but didn't because it would only hurt Bobo more to be able to see her but not touch.
He projected images on a wall, showing Bobo's mother sitting in a plain room. She seemed weak, and was muttering words about a curse, inheritance, and Bobo. Suddenly a familiar voice began to speak, mentioning something about her bloodline, and the picture immediately disappeared. Noah claimed the magic didn't work anymore and that someone was onto him. Bobo realized the voice in the display belonged to that of the Lord, and though Noah denied the connection, she realized the Lord had been the one to take her mother, and that the Lord and Noah had been misleading her the whole time.
The voice of the True King in Bobo's head began to speak to her again, and promised her that through eternal peace, the world could be cured. She began to lose control over her own body, closing her eyes. From that point, the voice in her head could talk to her all the time, and persistently reminded her that she would never be able to protect the people around her. Later, in Galevilla, Bobo saw Nikki and Momo searching for her. However, the voice forbade her from going to talk to them, and she listened as they disappeared, lamenting that it was likely her last chance to talk to her friends.
Brave New World Edit
Using Bobo, the True King sent various people across Miraland into a deep sleep, including Nikki, Kimi, Ace, Chloris, and Sherry. Their dreams were a repetitive illusion of their happiest memories, meant to lull them into peace while Miraland was destroyed. However, Nikki's dream incorporated Bobo, and after Nikki became aware something was wrong, she managed to talk to the True King (using Bobo's form) about it. When Nikki accused her of not being Bobo, Bobo was able to take control momentarily and warn Nikki about the True King's plans. Nikki was jarred awake by what happened.
Nikki went around and woke up the rest of her friends before attempting to visit the late Lunar. She went into a world formed by her memories, called the Cloud Realm, where Lunar could be found. There, she was able to see the nebulas that represented the memory of each person she knew, including Bobo's, which was distinctly dim.
The True King was able to intrude on the Nikki's Cloud Realm and take over. Nikki and her friends objected to his use of Bobo's form, but he only proclaimed that he was the heir to the blood that flowed through her body and explained his plan to put Miraland into a deep sleep again in order to prevent pain and suffering. However, Nikki was encouraged by Bobo's nebula, still shining even if dimly, and used the power of friendship to create a bright light that dispelled the darkness.
The True King was weakened, and Nikki managed to expel him from Bobo's body by holding her tightly. Bobo gained control of her body again, begging Nikki for forgiveness and warning her to return to her world to escape the imminent destruction of Miraland. Upon Nikki's insistence, though, Bobo understood that Nikki wasn't going to go anywhere.
However, at this point, something happened to Bobo's body in the real world that caused her form in the Cloud Realm to disappear. Though it is unknown what happened to her, Nikki made a secret promise, to herself and to Bobo, that she would find her.
Bobo was given a mission to seek out Nikki and involve her in Miraland's disputes, which led to her befriending Nikki in Wheat Field. However, as they traveled together, Bobo and Nikki formed a genuinely close friendship, and Bobo was very reluctant to leave her. She has a strong desire to protect Nikki, whether it be from the dangers of the world or from herself. To Bobo, Nikki is her "most special memory".
Due to their individualistic bonds with Nikki, they have a tendency to bicker and argue a lot. They don't hold back when it comes to offending the other, and Bobo can be physically violent with Momo if he really upsets her. However, it's obvious they both care about each other a lot; when Bobo leaves Nikki and Momo's side, he chases after her and she gives him a genuine hug before going on her way.
Noah first met Bobo in the mountains of Pigeon when she was 14, protecting her from being killed by the same man who had just killed her father. He gave her the opportunity to learn more about Miraland's darker side and help him restore peace to the land, which she took. They became friends, and he always tried his best to cheer her up with magic tricks. Though he followed her throughout her journey to save her mother, he was actually working to hide the truth behind the organisation they both worked for. He also built a living doll in Bobo's likeness.
Bobo appears to have a lot of respect for Kimi, as she was very invested in helping her find White Blossom and seemed willing to go to bat for her when Reid kissed her. However, Kimi privately doubted Bobo's intentions, saying that she knew too much for her position and was too eager to help and jump into danger. When she voiced these concerns, Momo pointed out all of the ways Bobo did care for her, and Kimi apologized for doubting her.
Locco is a friend of Bobo's from Lilith. They share similar styles, and Locco especially loves to collect all sorts of clothing and accessories. Once Locco invited both Bobo and Nikki to a tea party.
Liliana is one of Bobo's friends who lives in a rose castle in Lilith. Her manner is different from Bobo's, but regardless they are still friends. Liliana invited Bobo to a tea party once, but disappeared halfway through, leading Bobo to assume that she got lost.
When Bobo first meets Kaja, she's instantly starstruck, and she became a fan of Kaja and her band. She admired Kaja's style of dressing, and even called her attractive when she sang. In her sprite for stage V1: 12-5 To the Storehouse, Bobo wears a shirt that says "Love Lifeng" on it, referring to Kaja (Lifeng is her name in Chinese). She also attends various concerts of Kaja's.
