Hu Tao

She has a tendency to be mischievous, often causing mischief with her magic power.

Her battle stance is a dance-like kick that seems to be inspired by martial arts from the East, while her fighting attack is called "Victory Dance", which she states is a special skill only she has.

First, she's the Queen of the Ocean, ready to take on any challenger. Second, she's actually quite dainty, despite her dusky blue tanned skin that shows tales of battles fought. 

Third, she likes lollipops! And finally, though she looks for all intents and purposes male, she's actually a girl, falling in love easily.
