Yamabuki Inori (山吹 祈里 Yamabuki Inori or ยามาบูกิ อิโนริ in the Thai sub)
14
 also called "Buki" (吹)  by her friends, is a 2nd grade secondary student at Christian Private White Clover Academy. She is an animal lover, aspiring to be a veterinarian. Her Pickrun, the Kirun, is yellow and has horns on its head. Her alter ego is Cure Pine (キュアパイン Kyua Paiin) and her catchphrase is "I believe in it!" (わたし、信じてる! Watashi, shinjiteru!).

AppearanceEdit

Inori has short, ginger colored hair and orange eyes. She wears her hair up to the side, held up by a small yellow bow, or in most cases, a scrunchy with two teal-colored beads. Despite this, she was seen wearing a much bigger yellow bow when she was dancing with Love, Miki and Setsuna in the last episode. As a civilian, she is often seen wearing a bright yellow long-sleeved, turtleneck undershirt with a orange shirt on top, which has a green ribbon on it. A blue skirt with a white stripe on the bottom, dark blue socks and brown sandles.

When she is practicing her dancing, she is seen wearing a yellow sweat jacket with white and orange sections on the side with a popped collar. The cuffs and edge of the jacket have matching stripped orange and white patterns. Under her sweat shirt, she wears a white shirt with a yellow collar. She wears a yellow skirt with black short-like pants under it. On her feet she wears orange sneakers and long white socks.

As Cure Pine, her hair becomes longer and slightly curlier and turns to a golden color. It is tied into a side ponytail, similar to that of Inori, and held up by an orange and yellow heart-shaped bow. She has a pair of long, yellow heart shaped earings that hang upside down from her ears and an orange choker. On her wrists, she wears puffy yellow and orange wristbands. She wears a white puffy top with short sleeves. On the left side of her dress, she wears the Fresh Pretty Cure clover. Her skirt has a top layer of frilly yellow with layers of a lighter yellow underneath it. On the side of her hip, hangs her Linkrun. She wears short orange and yellow boots, with dark red socks underneath.

PersonalityEdit

Inori may look calm and quiet, but actually suffers from low self-esteem. In order to improve herself, she joins the dancing group with her friends Momozono Love and Aono Miki and later Higashi Setsuna which they called "Clover". She sometimes lacks common sense and just goes with whatever situation she finds herself in. Inori is very shy girl, having regard to the others. She dislikes to hurt anybody and wanted to protect her friends and her family. She would never want to have a dispute with anyone. Inori is also very kind, and is very fond of animals but used to have a fear of ferrets. Unlike Love and the others, Inori is quick-witted and nimble when studying and focusing on significant clues.

RelationshipsEdit

Yamabuki Tadashi : Inori's father, the local veterinarian, owns a personal clinic in Yotsuba Town. He has a bold, generous appearance and personality paying patient to animals, affecting Inori a lot.

Tarte : Inori used to have a fear or ferrets, but when Soular's slot machine Nakewameke runs loose, Inori and Tarte swap bodies. The two get an experience of what it is like to be the opposite species. After the Nakewameke is defeated, the two are back in their proper bodies, and Inori's fears are eased.

Kirun : Kirun is Inori's personal Pickrun. She allows Inori to speak to and understand the language of animals, use her up-graded attack and later on in the series, she gives Cure Pine the power to transform into Cure Angel.

Mikoshiba Kento : Kento is Daisuke's friend from Love's school. It is believed that he has a crush on Inori seeing how he blushes after asking her to come to a boat party, but Inori is unaware and probably only thinks of him as a friend.

EtymologyEdit

Yamabuki (山吹) : Yama (山) translates to mountain probably refering to how she overcame her shyness, by moving "upward", and buki (吹) translates to blow; breathe; puff, refering to blowing into her Pine Flute to use her attack. The "ki" in "buki" can also mean yellow, obviously refering to her theme color. The word yamabuki also refers to a kind of yellow flower known as Japanese Kerria (Kerria japonica).

Inori (祈里) : Ino (祈) translates to pray; wish or to have faith referring to her role as the Cure of the symbol of faith, and to her attack Healing Prayer.

Buki is a shorten form of her last name, Yamabuki.

Cure Pine refers to the pineapple fruit.

SongsEdit

Inori's voice actor, Nakagawa Akiko, has particated in several image songs for the character she voices. Many of them include duets with Kanae Oki, who voices Momozono Love, Eri Kitamura, who voices Aono Miki, and later Yuka Komatsu, who voices Higashi Setsuna.
