Chivil, (チビル Chibiru) also known as Tivil and Chiquidiablo (Little Devil) in the Latin American dubs of both shows, 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.
Chivil rides around on a dragon named Taxi Dragon. He can fly using the wings on his back, and he has the ability to summon the night. 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. This is due in no small part to Arale's persistence, though he still takes a shot at it every once in a while.
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.
