Live before Lovely Flower!
One day, new transferred stundent came in her class. That girls name is Hanasaki Tsubomi. Erika deciced that, she should be a member of her Fashion Club. So Erika and Tsubomi became best friends. And together with Myoudouin Itsuki and Tsukikage Yuri they are Pretty Cure and fought against the Desert Apostles.

Her casualwear consists of a blue-green dress decorated with a yellow ribbon at the chest, with long white sleeves and layers of white frills at the bottom. She also wears white socks and brown fashion boots. In school, she wears the standard issue uniform for girls.
Erika is extremely energetic and can sometimes be a bit impatient or even lazy. She is also very nosy and will not ignore shy people like Tsubomi, and always says exactly what is on her mind. Because of this, she might give out a selfish and mean attitude to calmer people, but other times, a very mature and understanding side of her is shown, especially when it involves Tsubomi. Whenever Tsubomi is stressed or scared, Erika is usually the one to calm her down or comfort her, and Tsubomi often relies on her whenever needed. She is also shown to be quite sympathic for others at times

Super Cure Marine is the Super Silhouette upgrade Marine receives after passing the trial in the Pretty Cure Palace. In this form, she can use the group finisher, Heartcatch Ultra Ballade.
Kurumi Momoka: Her relationship with her older sister Momoka is poor, as Erika thinks her sister is much more beautiful and mature than her, making her extremely jealous.
Hanasaki Tsubomi: Erika was loud and energetic and has an interest in Tsubomi when she met her. She tries to follow her around and tell her about the school. But Tsubomi soon get along with Erika and her energetic personality slowly but quick as they go to school together, living as neighbors, working together as Pretty Cures, and became Best Friends.
Coffret: Coffret acts like a little brother to Erika. He is very impressed with how fast she learned to transform and attack, and the two often think alike. Sometimes he gets into fights because he thinks of her as lazy that she can't even do her homework or clean her room and Erika always ask him to do it for her.
Kurumi (来海): Kuru (来) translates to come; coming; due; next. Mi (海) translates to sea; ocean, a reference to her title of Cure Marine and her water-based powers. Roughly, the two together may be translated to the coming sea.
Erika (えりか): Erika the given name is common in Japan, but actually it is an English name "Erica"/"Erika" that many Japanese parents loves to give, and often written in different kanjis without a formal one. She might be possibly named after the Erica genus (literally spring heathers), as several meanings refer to flowers and fragrance, which would fit with the theme of Heartcatch Pretty Cure!.
