Space Dandy Wiki

Adélie (アデリー, Aderī) is a young Gentooan who Dandy meets on Planet Humbolt. Originally hunting her kind for a whopping 8 million woolong reward, Dandy takes a shine to her (and vice versa) and tries to put her in contact with another Gentooan (her grandfather). Adélie has blonde hair styled into a distinctive bun with her fringe brushed forward, peculiar green eyes which have horizontal slit pupils and a singular white spot on each side of her chin. Her back has two green circles on each shoulder blade from where her mind transferring tentacle appendages operate from.

She wears a pink and white coif that has two long white ribbons with gold tips that begin from the coif's rear and sports a white and gold collar. Her outfit consists of a black jumpsuit-type baselayer with a bright blue V-shaped backless romper. On her left wrist she wears a pink and purple bracelet and each of her fingers have square edges. Her shoes are pointy and she carries around a plush of a stylised patchwork penguin which she uses as her puppet. Her name is also a reference to a species of penguin by the same name.

Personality and Relationships[]

Despite her apparent age, Adélie is feisty, isn't afraid to speak her mind and do what it takes to get what she requires. She does not like to be treated like a child e.g. demanding an adult train ticket. She is particularly libeling of 'grown ups', remarking "they blame the world for all their problems and they lie about everything. As far as I'm concerned, grown-ups are all jerks." Otherwise, she is polite and pleasant, for example, her conversation with the new tenant of her grandpa's previous home. She was raised only by her mother, who was unmarried and tragically died of sickness, which was the reason why she wanted to find out if her grandpa lived at that apartment.

She soon travels with Dandy so that he can send her to the Registration Center to get the money. But, as time goes by and as Adélie spends more time with Dandy, she grows attached to him, as shown when she bursts into tears when she thought Dandy was leaving her. Soon, after Dandy saves her, she wishes to join his crew. When Dandy tells her she's just a kid and that he'll only let her join if she grows up to be a voluptuous woman, she confidently tells herself that she'll grow up fast for him so she can hunt him down and join him once more, showing just how attached she has become to the lewd but kind alien hunter seeing him as a father figure.

Abilities and Powers[]

Being a Gentooan, she has the ability to transfer others' minds and consciousness into puppets. However, she can only perform this once every day for 666 seconds (11 minutes and 6 seconds).
