Chivil,[1] (チビル Chibiru) also known as Tivil and Chiquidiablo (Little Devil) in the Latin American dubs of both shows,[2] is a small imp occasionally seen playing with Arale Norimaki and the Gatchan. He is three years old when he first appears in the series.[3]

Biography

Chivil riding Taxi Dragon.

Chivil rides around on a dragon named Taxi Dragon. He can fly using the wings on his back,[1] and he has the ability to summon the night.[2] Originally sent to Penguin Village from Mount FlapFlap to search for souls for his master, Chivil eventually finds that he would much rather play with people than kill them.[1] This is due in no small part to Arale's persistence, though he still takes a shot at it every once in a while.[2]

In Metropolis Island: Part 1, he goes to Metropolis Island with Arale and her friends,[4] and in part 2, they end up destroying the city while playing war in the streets.[5]

In Witchy Gone Wild, Chivil has an older sister named Witchpee, who has had a crush on Senbei Norimaki, Taro Soramame, and Kurikinton Soramame.[3]

Chivil and his sister run after Arale and Gatchan with the other Penguin Village residents in the chapter Penguin Village Dom-Dom-Dom!

The siblings also appear in Cinderella, the Musical.

Trivia

  • Both Chivil and Ackman from Go! Go! Ackman are juvenile demons who kill people to sell their souls and earn money from their masters.
  • Chivil's name is a pun on the word chibiru (ちびる), meaning to wet one's pants, and the word chibi (ちび) (a slang term meaning "small" or "short") and the devil (transliterated as デビル or "debiru" in Japanese), referencing his appearance.
