A magical girl who absolutely loves games and arcades, and belongs to Promised Blood. She came to Kamihama to investigate the automatic purification system and the magical girls there, but trouble often occurs because she's a sore loser and badmouthed, often causing her to pick fights with others.
The following is a summary posted on 4chan's /pmmm/ general.
The Tokime clan's base is at the temple. It was originally planned to be demolished,as a part of a neighborhood renovation plan. They covered up the details about the consequences for the people who would suffer from the loss of it, though. Ryoko was not happy that this situation was presented to people as something good, especially considering her beliefs. So, she wished for the details of the demolition to be disclosed. The irony is, she is not even from Kamihama, but from a neighboring town. However, she is a part of the Tokime clan through blood. The temple she saved belongs to one of the branch families. Another irony is, she didn't want to be a hero and a part of the Tokime clan in the first place.
She lost her parents when she was young, so she was raised at the Buddhist temple by her grandfather. She was told that her mother was "a hero, who saved the country". Yet she died and left Ryoko behind. As a result, the girl was raised in the traditional, ascetic manner. She didn't have what we would call an ordinary childhood. Eventually, Ryoko developed a grudge against heroes and viewed acts of heroism as simply the means for someone to obtain empty fame.
That is where the flashback with Moeka comes into play. She was saving a drowning kitten, despite being unable to swim, so as a result Ryoko had to save her. She asked for a reason for such recklessness afterwards. Moeka answered that she did it simply because she can't stand someone dying on her watch. Though Ryoko didn't think she was serious at the time, since the thought of someone acting heroic just to be perceived as a hero by others was still too strong in her. This continued until her grandfather let her listen to a recording which contained her mom's final message, the one Ryoko was to listen to when she grew up enough. The truth was that her mom was a spy, gathering intel on terrorist cells. Her cover was blown and the back-up didn't make it in time. Her heroic actions led to her preventing a potential war outbreak.
Such a discovery changed Ryoko's views significantly which led her to joining the Tokime clan (despite previously refusing them, after they had shown her the Tokime village). As a side note, her grandpa knows she's a magical girl because he saw her after her transformation - Her debut in "From New Breath" happened because she heard a monk from the temple she saved telling her grandfather that the village members of the clan will come to Kamihama. She got curious and witnessed Touka's Doppel when she arrived.
- The characters of her last name mean "wisdom" (智) and "pearl" (珠) respectively.
- Her illustrator is 'Kaou'.
