— Becky Blackbell in Chapter 9

Becky Blackbell (ベッキー・ブラックベル, Bekkī Burakkuberu?) is the daughter of the CEO of Blackbell Heavy Industries, a major military manufacturer.[4][5] She attends Eden Academy as part of Cecile House, Group 3, and is Anya Forger's best friend.

Appearance

She has shoulder-length dark brown hair with uneven bangs that are swept to the side and held with a hairclip that resembles a lit bomb. Her hair is typically tied into two side ponytails. She lets her hair down when at home. Her light brown eyes are narrow with double eyelids, and prominent upper and lower eyelashes. The eyebrows above her eyes are thin and short, and there is usually a slight blush on her face.

Like all other female students, she is usually seen wearing the Eden Academy uniform. Her hair is typically tied up with pink scrunchies, though she wears ribbons instead during the interclass dodgeball match.

Personality

Becky is a very kind child, but with her being the daughter of a major military manufacturer, she is shown to be somewhat prideful and tries to be mature, attempting to take Anya under her wing as an act of benevolence when she views Anya as a brat. She does not attempt to get close to Damian Desmond despite his social position, even looking down on their classmates who try to befriend Damian and Anya who is initially bullied by Damian's group. Anya's confident smile later wins over Becky's admiration.

Becky is quite patient, going along with Anya's desire to be called "Starlight Anya" after her success at getting a Stella Star.[6]

She is seen to also have a somewhat low outlook on monetary value as seen when she doesn't show much interest in mentioning how she gained presents such as a diamond embedded doll, and her own small house in her yard for doing well in school. Becky is also a caring and protective girl as seen when she often confronts Damian whenever he bullies Anya, even saying that she'll protect her no matter what.

History

Becky was born as the daughter of the CEO of Blackbell, a major military manufacturer. She is often doted on and spoiled by her parents, being given expensive rewards for succeeding at tests, some of these being a giant cake, a small house, a diamond-studded doll, a pink tank, a pink warplane, a tiara with real gems and a dog. Her dog appears to be a Yorkshire Terrier named 'Wiesel', which she affectionately nicknames 'Weezy'.[7]

Synopsis

Eden Beginnings Arc

Becky comes to the stage when her name is called and introduces herself to Anya Forger while thinking of Anya as immature, but as Anya could read her thoughts, she gets annoyed and ignores Becky. When Damian Desmond and his followers pick on Anya, Anya just smiles like how Yor Forger taught her, stating that she does not care and earning Becky's admiration in the process. Damian later throws a paper ball at Anya and Becky threatens to tell the teacher for which he steps on her foot and pushes her. He continues to pick on Anya, who then punches him while Becky and Damian's friends look on in shock. When the Henry comes over to check on them, Becky explains that its because they kept bullying Anya the whole time, however Anya explains that she got mad at Damian for stepping on Becky's foot, making Becky believe that Anya did it for her and thanks her.[8]

The next day, Becky arrives at school and upon seeing that Anya took the school bus, she offers to have her chauffeur pick Anya up next time. On the way to class, they see Damian and his followers and Anya attempts to apologize, but Becky drags her away telling her to not talk to them. In the classroom, everyone avoids Becky and Anya as they are afraid of Anya, however, Becky smiles at her and tells Anya they should be best friends as only she knows how great Anya is. When the class ends, Becky wakes up a dozing Anya, who wants to apologize to Damian and mumbles about world peace. Becky thinks she means peace in the schoolyard and tells Anya that she will protect her. As Becky keeps stopping Anya from apologizing, Loid Forger uses the audio system to call Becky to the assembly hall, giving Anya a chance to go and apologize to Damian. Becky heads to the assembly hall, but is unable to find the person who called her there.[9]

Becky and Anya's friendship

Anya Forger is Becky's first close friend at Eden Academy. The two do not initially get off to a good start, with Becky viewing Anya as more childish than her and attempting to take care of her, causing Anya to ignore her attempts at socializing. After Anya smiles confidently at Damian's attempts to bully her, Becky changes her opinion of her and begins to view Anya as more mature, admiring her.

After Anya punches Damian in the face and uses Damian stepping on Becky's foot as an excuse, Becky becomes moved to tears and thanks Anya profusely. Becky and Anya become much closer, with Becky even offering to send Anya to school in her car. When their classmates isolate and gossip about them, Becky's honest and friendly nature is able to help Anya with her fear of school and her classmates' thoughts.

Becky is also one of Anya's 'favorite things'.[10]

Damian Desmond

Becky is one of the few that do not try to befriend Damian for his father's position. She frequently defends Anya from his bullying, often expressing disgust when meeting him, and hinders Anya from apologizing to him.
