Physical Appearances

Qistina has medium-long yellowish gold hair tied into two pigtails with the rest of her hair gathered behind her back. She has amber eyes and fair skin. Like the other characters, her outfit changes throughout the comics regularly.


Described by Emilia, Qistina is a nice, cheerful and bubbly individual, but because of her mingling with the snooty and arrogant Sofia, she and Zara inherited some of her negative traits and was pictured as a self-centered person like Sofia.

As the series developed, Qistina was shown to be more open-minded and helpful to her fellow schoolmates and friends after Sofia had a positive change in her personality. Qistina was also shown to be a rather forgivable person, this trait of her was displayed when despite her arguments she had with Sofia and ended their friendship, Qistina was willing to forgive her and helped Sofia to get rid of her vanity.
