Akazukin Chacha Archive

Relatives

Chacha's parents and grandfather make an appearance. Her main aim was to save her parents in the first 50 or so episodes. We also find Shiine's parents and the truth about his father. Riiya's grandfather and brothers also appear in the show.

Chacha's father

Full name
I have absolutely no idea.
Sex
Male (He is Chacha's father!!)
Age
? When he was turned into stone, I don't think he aged.
Features
He has brown hair and a brown beard. He looks likes...... well.... a king.

When Daimarou was attacking his castle, he ordered the Sacred Bird (also known as The King's Royal Seal) to fly away. The Sacred Bird could be turned into a harp and whoever played it, the land would reflect what was in their hearts. So if Daimarou played it, his dream of spreading evil would easily by accomplished.

Chacha's mother

Full name
I don't know this one either. I've heard Chacha's father call her 'Bessie' though.
Sex
Female (as if there were a choice!!)
Age
? When she was turned into stone, I don't think she aged either.
Features
Blonde hair (where else did you think Chacha got hers??)

She looks like, well a queen.

Chacha's grandfather

Full name
Genus
Sex
Male
Age
Very old I guess. But he looks good for his age.
Features
White hair. Looks like Chacha's father so he's probably Chacha's father's father (you with me??)

He doesn't seem to hold any rank in the castle. He just walks around. But then again, we don't se him much. Chacha goes to him for advice (actually she only went once. And that was to ask him if he ever felt like he wanted to just get out of the castle. He admitted that he once did feel that way. When asked what happened, he said "Then I became king!!" Ok, that didn't help Chacha or her friends.)

When Daimarou beseiged the castle, Chacha's grandfather handed baby Chacha over to Seravi. He then occupied Daimarou so that Seravi could get away. But while fighting Daimarou, he was almost defeated. As a desperate action, he used his magic to place a field around the castle to prevent Daimarou from leaving it. At the same time, he was turned into a red crystal (supposedly by Daimarou) Seravi saw all this and quickly picked up the crystal that eventually took it's place in Chacha's Princess Medallion.

Shiine's father

Full name
Access
Sex
Male
Age
?
Features
We usually see him in his knight gear. He has a really big helmet as well.

Access was introduced as Chacha's first opponent who was too powerful to be vanquished with the Magical Celine Arrow. (He just caught it in his hand!!) This led Chacha on an adventure to find the legendary Phoenix Sword that Queen Joanne had once used along with the Magical Celine Arrow. Throughout their search, Access was close behind them.

If I am not mistaken, before the arrival of Daimarou, Access was working for the king, Chacha's father. When Daimarou beseiged the castle, he imprisoned Shiine's mother and Access had no choice but to work for him. To avoid Shiine growing up under the rule of the Dark Master, Access entrusted Dorothy to teach him and bring him up as her own son. With his wife imprisoned, Access had to carry out Daimarou's orders......to kill Chacha. But when he found out that Shiine was Chacha's friend, he hesitated. This eventually led to a confrontation between father and son. Shiine lost and Chacha had to use the Phoenix Sword Blast to defeat Access. Naturally, Shiine wasn't too happy but Seravi comforted him by telling Shiine that the Phoenix Sword would not take anyone's life and his father just needed to rest. The following episode, Chacha, Riiya and Shiine find and rescuse Shiine's mother from the Spider Dungeon (I think that is the name of the place where Shiine's mother was kept.) With both his parents saved and free from the rule of Daimarou, Shiine stayed behind with Chacha while his parents went to start life anew. Don't ask me why they left Shiine, although my friend said that was what Shiine wanted.

If you have ever seen Access without his gear, you were probably as surprised as I was!! He looked quite small to be able to carry all that equiptment!!

After Chacha defeated Daimarou, Shiine stayed at the castle for a while. He had a tough time adjusting to living with his parents. He also kept doing all the housework (that he just loves!!) until his mother told him to stop. (She said she would get bored and that Shiine should be playing!!!!)

To regain the king's trust, Access went off to find the Sacred Bird (also known as the King's Royal Seal) The Seal was a harp and whoever played it, the land would reflect whatever was in the person's heart. So if a good-hearted person played it, the land would be peaceful. But the opposite would happen if a person with an evil heart played it. Access was unable to complete his mission so Chacha and her friends had to do it for him. This lead to Chacha giving up her Magical Princess Medallion, Riiya his Braclet and Shiine his Ring. In return, Chacha was offered a Communications Compact to talk with her mother, a Magical Brooch which could hold anything short of a mountain and The Crescent Aurora Bracelet which would bring back something useful in times of trouble. She chose all of them. After this, we don't see Access again until Seravi's and Dorothy's wedding, but he had no lines.

Access is one of the coolest characters in the series!! He can perform magic. (How else do you think Shiine could perform magic??)

Shiine's mother

Full name
? Never heard Access mention a name.
Sex
Female
Age
?
Features
She has blonde hair.

Shiine's mother was imprisoned by Daimarou to force Access to do his bidding. She was kept in the Spider Dungeon (I think. I can't remember the name) guarded by a field and the Spider Woman. The field only began to disintegrate when Riiya and Shiine started calling each other names and the only way they could remove the field completely was to throw insults at Chacha!!

Well, not much else to say. After Chacha defeated Access, they rescued Shiine's mother who then went off with Access to start life anew (I must have repeated that about 3 times altogether!!)

Riiya's relatives

Strangely enough, we don't see his parents. He seems to have been brought up with his brothers by his grandfather.

Riiya's grandfather

Full name
I think he is called Muscle Wolf Man or something like that.
Sex
Male
Age
?
Features
He is a giant of a man!! Riiya is decended from a family of giants who can take on a wolf form but still maintaining human posture. (Something wrong must have occured in the gene pool because Riiya and his brothers are of normal size and when they take on the form of a wolf, they lose their human posture i.e. they look exactly like a small wolf. I think the term is kawai.) When he walks, the whole ground shakes. When we first saw him, Chacha thought it was an earthquake.

Before Daimarou came about, Riiya's grandfather was friends with another man named Atton. When Daimarou beseiged the castle, he had to destroy and important bridge (I'm not sure which 2 places it linked though) despite Atton's pleas to stop. Daimarou later made Atton turn on his friend, but was defeated by Chacha. Riiya's grandfather then helped rebuild the bridge.

Riiya's brothers

There's not much to say about them. Like Riiya, they can turn into a small wolf. And also like Riiya, they have a huge appetittefor food. Riiya is the youngest in his family and he learned that if you didn't get to the food first, you were probably going to have nothing to eat. This probably led to his food craze.
