Deserted Lunarian military infiltrator, now Dango Salesgirl
Seiran is a member of the "Eagle Ravi" Earth Recon Unit sent to "purify" the Earth, and is part of the Lunarian Military Infiltrators. She's in charge of the Infiltration operations, one of the most dangerous jobs. It seems that it's hard for her to hold a regular conversation, even with her Moon Rabbit comrades.
Seiran (清蘭) is spelled with the characters for sei (清) "clear, pure, clean", and ran (蘭) "orchid" a plant of the orchid family, bearing unusually-shaped flowers of beautiful colours; it could also means "elegant, graceful".
Seiran has dark blue hair, tied in two bushy ponytails, with ears similar to Reisen Udongein Inaba's on the top of her head and an accessory in one of them, she has red eyes, a common trait in Moon Rabbits. Her dress is periwinkle with frills and an alternating star and crescent moon pattern across the bottom. The bloomers under her skirt seem to be made of see-through fabric. She also carries a purple stained wooden mallet (presumably used for making Mochi). Although it's not visible in her portraits, she also has a tail.
