Some days after Tsukushi received her first red card, the Lilies wrote "Tsukushi Makino - only girl in her school who had two abortions" on their classroom's blackboard. Their role in the incident was unknown to Tsukushi, who only saw Erika and her friends wiping away the words. They acted friendly to Tsukushi and invited her to a party in Roppongi. When she arrived, they made fun of her clothes and treated Tsukushi rudely, eventually revealing themselves.
Unlike her friends, Erika had a round, normal face, similar to Tsukushi's. She was also the shortest of her friends. Her most distinguishing feature was her short and curly hair, which she usually left down. Erika's wardrobe, when not wearing the Eitoku High uniform, consisted of the latest name-brand fashion.
Personality and traits
Before knowing her true nature, Tsukushi believed Erika to be more in her league than Yuriko and Minako. Erika, like her best friends, was greedy and bullied Tsukushi, because she caught the attention of the F4. She pursued men for their money, but refused to date bald men, unlike Yuriko.
