Himeko Shirogane (白金姫子, Princess Morbucks in the English dub) is a classmate and on/off antagonist of the Powerpuff Girls Z.
She is in the same school as Momoko, Miyako, and Kaoru (the Powerpuff Girls Z). In this series, Princess is 13 years old. Princess was struck by black light, which makes her eyes, hair, and tights change. Once she is back to normal however, she does not recall any events that occurred while she was evil. She initially has a strong hatred for Momoko, Miyako, and Karou, trying to get them into trouble even when she is not evil, but she becomes friendlier toward them as time goes on. In one episode, the Powerpuff Girls Z found out that Himeko has a big sister named Miko (Duchess Morbucks in English), who does everything better than her, and even draws attention by their parents. Unlike the original cartoon series, both of her parents' faces are shown.
Unlike her 1998 series counterpart, Himeko does not specifically want to become a member of the main superhero team; rather, she merely wishes that people would pay more attention to her. This motive is caused by Himeko's parents favoring Duchess, her sister, over Himeko herself. Thus, it can be said that this version of Princess is, to an extent, sympathetic.
She has a similar hairstyle as the original Morbucks, but it is brown. She has red-pinkish eyes with white stars. She is mostly seen wearing a puffy-shaped purple dress which has a bow on the waist and a green flower-like button. She wears dark red shoes and white socks. She has freckles and wears a crown.She has a band on her neck.
