Rika is a girl who lives in Shells Town.
Rika is a young girl with black eyes and brown hair with pigtails. She wore a striped turquoise and purple shirt with a hood thats white.
After two years, her hair looks longer than before, and she has gotten taller. She wears a dark colored apron with the Marine symbol and a striped dress with a hood. She wears black shoes and a bandana tied over her head.
Rika is a gentle girl. But when she is losing her friends, she gets angry.
Captain Morgan ArcEdit
Rika first appeared when she tried to thank Zoro by offering him onigiri while he was imprisoned, but he refused and told her to go away. Helmeppo then came in and took them away from her rudely, saying that if she gave them to Zoro it would be as if she were the accomplice of a criminal, but he then spit them out complaining that the onigiri had sugar in them instead of salt. Helmeppo then ordered the naval marine standing behind him to throw her out and he reluctantly does so, but luckily, Rika was caught by Luffy before anything bad could happen.
The reason Zoro was imprisoned by the Marines was because he defended Rika when she was nearly attacked by Helmeppo's pet wolf. Because Helmeppo saw this as a crime towards himself, he ordered Zoro to stay imprisoned for thirty days. Zoro, not wanting to cause any more trouble, accepted.
Two Years LaterEdit
After the timeskip, she appears to be more mature, and is training at the Marine base in Shells Town to become a waitress. She seems to be much better at cooking, and is popular among the Marines.
- She later appeared in a filler episode as well as TV Special 4 where she is friends with Ninjin, Piiman and Tamanegi.
