|“||Don't put the cart before the horse. My top priority is always Vert. Always! I have a plaque to prove it.||”|
— Chika Hakozaki
Chika has long light green hair with a black and green ribbon tying a portion of it into a ponytail in the back. She has red eyes and dresses in a stylish black mini dress with black bows on both sides and long frills draping off both sides with a bright green coloring under them. Her socks are black and thigh high and are accompanied by matching black heels with purple bows in the center.
Chika, in a word, is obsessed with Vert, doing anything just to get her attention. This ranges from pretending to be sick to bringing up various video games for Vert to play. Cave is able to see through Chika's attempts easily, which often annoys her as a result.
She cares about Vert more then anyone in the world. She is also shown to be rather playful and energetic, but can also take up a serious role when necessary.

The two are angry at Vert; Chika is angered by the fact that Vert decided to cosplay with Nepgear instead of her, while Neptune is angered by the fact that Vert is taking valuable "Nep Jr." time away.
When Vert returns to Leanbox after defeating the Deity of Sin, due to Leanbox not having any CPU Candidate, she is forced to work on a large amount of paperwork that had piled up during her absence. Chika comes in and prepares some tea for her before asking her to play games. Vert initially refuses, wanting to complete the paperwork, but Chika manages to convince her by stating that she had bought all the newest and best games during her three years of absence. Vert decides to play games with her, but for only one hour; Chika is still happy she gets to spend time with Vert and prepares the games right away.
Vert confronts Neptune and Nepgear over her falling shares. While she puts up a good fight, Vert is eventually killed to feed the Cursed Sword's power due to Underling having fatally wounded her. Chika refuses to believe Vert had died.
