Mujika (ムジカ, Mujika?) is a demon descent traveling in the forest outside the Grace Field House. She saved Emma and the other orphans of Grace Field House from the pursuing demons. She, together with Sonju believe in a religious principle to not eat humans from farms. Though, Mujika has chosen not to eat wild humans either.

Appearance

Mujika has long, purple hair braided pigtails covering parts of her horns, and wears a mask with two holes positioned vertically for her to see through. She has a pale complexion and wears a bluish-white cloak.

Personality

Mujika initially displayed a kind, motherly and accommodating nature towards the Grace Field escapees, and aided them and provided hospitality. It was later revealed that these personality traits of hers was all just a façade, as she deceived them and initially wanted to capture them and return them back to Grace Field – a selfish way for her and Sonju to be granted with an "easy life" for half a year.[1] Nevertheless, Mujika agreed with Sonju to rescue the escapees instead, and kept both hers and Sonju's real, personal intentions of saving them.

Mujika tend to be easily attached to others, as mentioned by Sonju, when she started to show genuine affection and actual care towards Emma and the escapees.[2] Therefore, this showed how there is still some positive traits within her.

History

Mujika considered that they capture them and bring them back to the farm so they would have peace for at least six months.[3]

She asked Sonju why he didn't tell the kids about the King and what would happen if they would break the Demon World Promise.

Plot

Promised Forest Arc

After the news of several Grace Field orphans who had escaped reached Sonju and Mujika, the two ran into Emma, Ray and the other Grace Field escapees by coincidence, who were lost within the forest. When Mujika told Sonju in capturing them and return them back to Grace Field (which could grant them an "easy life" for half a year), Sonju denied her idea, and instead insist om saving them.[4]

Sonju and Mujika successfully rescued the Grace Field escapees from several demons as they brought them to their secret territory within a cave. The two aided in Emma's ear injury and provided hospitality for the orphans. Mujika talked to Emma in private, as she accommodated her and felt Emma's pain of loosing a love one, much so that she whispered to herself in her own language to express her concerns.

Mujika taught the kids about basic survival knowledge throughout their travels to B06-32. Right before parting ways, she gave Emma an eye-shaped locket to serve as a "good-luck charm" and told her to look for "The Seven Walls".[5] After Emma and the orphans departed, Sonju told Mujika on how he had hopes on Emma and her friends in bringing an end to The Promise, as he expressed his desire in breaking free from the restraint of eating humans due to his and Mujika's religious views as Heathens. Mujika did not respond, as she stared emotionlessly at her friend.

Cuvitidala Arc

When Emma vows to break The Promise and save Phil and the other orphans that were left in Grace Field, Mujika sensed it, as she stared towards a distance. Sonju noticed Mujika's odd behavior and questioned her, Mujika replied how she was fine as she proceeded to ride the Sleipnir horse with Sonju, while looking at the locket within her palm.[6]

Skills and Abilties

Demon Language

Being a demon, Mujika is able to speak the demon language. Though she preferred to talk using human language when she is with the Grace Field escapees or even Sonju. Mujika was shown to whisper using the demon language to herself when Emma shared with her the story of how she lost Norman – a close friend of hers – to the demons, as she was shown to be able to relate to her experience.

Relationships

Sonju

Both are of the same religion of exercising the restraint of eating humans, hence the two share a common denominator of being shunned and looked down by the other demons. Sonju considered Mujika to be a close ally, and often venture into the forest with her to hunt for creatures he described as "pests"[7]. Despite the two having a close relationship, both of their intentions occasionally clash, such as when Mujika is seemingly defiant of Sonju's desire to resume his practice of eating humans, and how Sonju preferred to protect them from getting caught by the farm demons when Mujika wanted to capture them and return them back to Grace Field instead.

Grace Field escapees

When the news of the escape of the Grace Field orphans spread to her. Mujika initially wanted to capture them and bring them back to Grace Field, but later agreed with Sonju to protect and rescue the orphans from getting hunted by the demons from the farms instead.[8]

Mujika aided them and provided hospitality, and when she was around them, put on a motherly and loving persona to conceal her actual intention of capturing them ; stemming from how she followed Sonju's then-hidden intention of considering them a way to break The Promise that was created, and eventually a way for him (and Mujika) to break free of his restraint from consuming human flesh.

Out of all the orphans, Emma was the closest to Mujika, as Mujika wishes to be her friend and treated Emma like a daughter. Mujika eventually grew more affectionate and accommodating, as she was willing to listen to Emma's stories and relate to Emma's pain of losing Norman.Citation needed

In the end, Mujika slowly grows genuine care and concern for the orphans, as pointed out by Sonju that she has been getting attached to them.[9] Mujika also grew to be trustful to Emma, as she believed how she is able to search for The Seven Walls and passed her an eye?shaped locket as a "lucky charm".

Leuvis

When Leuvis was shot in the eye by Yugo[10], his life flashes before his eyes as Mujika (and Sonju) were shown to be a few of the demons he met. The nature of the relationship between Mujika and Leuvis currently remains unknown.
