The term for it...How do I put this...? Of high social standing...A female...Princess...The Princess of the Narehate...

—Majikaja, describing Faputa

Majikaja, or sometimes just Kaja, is a Narehate living in the village Ilblu.[1] They can understand and communicate using human speech, though they sometimes forget words, and sometimes refers to themself in third person.[2]

Appearance[]

Despite being a Narehate, Majikaja's outside body is artificial, built by a Narehate puppet maker named Jezun, and is made out of many different things gained from trading and bartering.[3][4] They have a stitched-up sack in the center of their container, made of what looks like various cuttings of fabric.[5]

After the incident with Faputa, Majikaja uses a giant vehicle-like container to transport the others.[6]

Majikaja's real body is gaseous in form and contained within this sack.[7]

Personality[]

Majikaja is shown to be friendly and helpful, as they are the first being to greet Riko, Reg, and Nanachi in the 6th layer.[8] They escort them through the village and explain its value-based economy, and shows genuine interest in and concern for the three.[9][10] Just as the other inhabitants of Ilblu, they value fair trade and equal exchange.[11]

It can be assumed that Majikaja values scent, due to the claim that their body is formed by smells.[12] This is further supported by how often they reference scent, such as calling Nanachi "good smelling Nanachi", claiming Riko's scent changed when she grew worried, and continuously sniffing Vueko.[13]

History[]

Early Life[]

Whether Majikaja was part of the original group becoming Ilblu's first inhabitants is, as of yet, unknown.


Ilblu Arc[]

After Riko's group tracked the scent of Prushka's Life Reverberating Stone down and followed foot prints leading to Ilblu, they are approached by Majikaja who leads them to Poriyon; who is working on Prushka in order to bring out her true quality as White Whistle.[14]

While Prushka is being worked on, Majikaja shows them around the village.[15] When the balancing ceremony happens with Maaa, they explain the concept how it works to Riko.[16]

Later on, when Reg goes to investigate the Narehate Princess and Nanachi decides to go and try to buy water and some fruit, Majikaja tags along with Nanachi and reveals in a conversation about value between them that one of the Three Sages of the village, Belaf, is in possession of the supposed-to-be-dead Mitty. Nanachi asks Majikaja to take them to the sage.[17][18][10]

Later on, Riko visits the sage since she has been informed to find Nanachi with him and tries to buy them back from Belaf. Just before Riko can make a deal, that would have possible cost her either both her eyes, both her legs or her complete digestive system, Majikaja closes up her mouth and tells her not to be hasty.[19]

In the battle against the Fuzosheppu, Majikaja lets Riko ride on their "Speed Form" to execute her plan and lure the Fuzosheppu into the center of the village.[20]

When Vueko tells her story, Majikaja is also present and is surprised by its revelations.[21]

Both Majikaja and Moogie become a bit sad and nostalgic when Wazukyan says the village is the homeland of the ones with no place to go to, and admit they dream of continuing their adventure in the Abyss.[22]

Majikaja is also present when the conversation between Riko, Wazukyan and the villagers is interrupted by Juroimoh's attack.[23] After Reg's battle against Juroimoh, he asks Maaa, Majikaja and Moogie to keep Riko safe, just before Faputa arrives.[24]

Majikaja is later on seen using a huge container to transport the others into the village. Majikaja states that the Narehate that helped them with this massive body is gone now and Riko thanks them for helping them.[6]

After Wazukyan faded away, they are interrupted by sounds in the distance and Majikaja and the other villagers inform them that it is Faputa, calling to them for the first time. As such, they think they will regret it if they don't follow it as it feels like they would get destroyed if they don't obey it.[25]

But as they feel like they are the same as Riko, they let her make the final decision on where to head to. Seeing how it is dangerous everywhere, the group decides to go with the villagers. One of the villagers also notes that Vueko should have been with Wazukyan but is nowhere in sight. Reg also questions alarmed if they might have missed her along the way, but Riko says they should be able to catch up to her if she is around because she is not that fast.[26]

As Riko climbs back onto Majikaja, Moogie hands her the part of the letter that was sold at the Ilblu's Market of Value and tells her that it is a present from her and Majikaja they obtained by trading in a part of Faputa Reg gave them.[27]


Riko thanks them and the group moves onward. [28]

When the village starts to fall apart, Faputa tells Maaa and Majikaja to bring the trio out of the village.[29]

At one point, Majikaja's container has become completely immovable and, as they embrace their demise due to the village’s destruction, they resolve themselves to at least finish the final request of Faputa. Majikaja exits their container in their true gaseous body and enters Faputa’s body via her mouth who is still unconscious. This causes Majikaja to be able to take control of Faputa's body and defends the group together from the falling debris as the village comes to its end. While it is not explicitly shown, Majikaja perished with the village.[30]


Abilities[]

Multilingual[]

Majikaja's understands and speaks many different languages.[31]

Exchangeable Container[]

Due to Majikaja's true form consisting, expressed in their own words, out of "smells" they are able to exchange the container they use as bodies.[31]
