His headpiece has two white feather-like tufts jutting from it. He has the same ascot as his fairy form but with a star obscuring the knot. He also has a pair of yellow translucent fairy-like wings.

As Rio, he has short dark blue hair with his bangs in the same style as his transformed state and blue eyes. He is usually either seen wearing a long-sleeved dark blue shirt with a black turtleneck underneath with white pants and black shoes or the boys' middle school uniform. When purified, his hair becomes sky blue and is now longer, tied back with an accessory similar to his hair in his fairy form. He usually wears a long-sleeved light blue shirt with a blue vest, white pants and light blue shoes. His eyes look similar to Ciel's.

It is held together by a blueberry with a dark green leaf on each side. He has bright blue eyes with green and yellow accents and a light purple ascot.
He makes a brief appearance toward the end of episode 10, standing on top of a building while holding a flyer for the upcoming Sweets Festival.
He has a first major appearance in episode 11, where he fuses all Kirakiraru Thieves into one giant monster, which ends up being defeated.
In episode 12, he starts visiting Ichika's school as transfer student named Kuroki Rio and becomes quite popular among the students. In the same episode he steals Kirakiraru from a helpless girl and transforms his rod into a sword to fight against the Cures. During the fight he introduces himself as Julio and mentions that he is merely conducting experiments using people's Kirakiraru.
He appears in following episodes and is still seen doing experiments with Kirakiraru from people's hearts, but he ends up defeated every time.
During episode 17, he says some nasty stuff to Ichika and as a result Ichika falls deep into despair, thus giving him the opportunity to steal her Kirakiraru. In this episode he transforms his rod into a dark replica of the Cures' Candy Rod and mimics all their attacks. When he nearly defeats the Cures, Cure Whip shows up, recovered from her despair and together the Cures manage to hit him with Three・2・Wonderful A La Mode, breaking his mask and rod in the process. Cure Whip offers him her hand and tells him to come with her, but Julio refuses, saying you cannot get feelings through with sweets and leaves.
In episode 18, he is seen with Bibury in their hideout, who mocks him and tells him she will be the one who will take care of the Cures.
In episode 21, Bibury mocks his losses again, making him very upset. This time Noir appears before him and takes Kirakiraru from his heart to repair and power up his broken rod.
In episode 22, he fights the Cures with his powered up rod and during the fight Kirarin discovers he is actually her brother, a fairy named Pikario, with whom she went to study in Paris. It is revealed that during their time in Paris he fell into despair, because he couldn't match Kirarin's skills and ended up crying all alone in the street. While he was crying, Noir appeared before him and told him he has a hidden talent deep within him. Noir then took Kirakiraru from his heart to make him a rod and turn him into Julio. In the end of this episode, he ends up purified with Three・2・Wonderful A La Mode thanks to Cure Whip's feelings, then he turns back to his fairy form.
In episode 23, Pikario still has some hatred toward Ciel for what she had done. He attempts to make his waffles again, but they still turn black, meaning he still hasn't fully recovered from his brainwashing by Noir. As Ciel cries and starts hating herself for what she had done to Pikario, Noir arrives to try and turn Ciel into his servant using the darkness and self-doubt within her. She becomes trapped in it, but not before Pikario, along with Ichika, enter the sphere she was trapped in. While in it, Pikario turns back into Giulio as Ichika tries to reach out to Ciel, but Ciel is in so deep with her self-hatred that she feels nothing will help her. After falling through an abyss, they all find themselves in a kitchen, where Whip tells Julio to make his waffles again in hopes of reaching out to Ciel again. Reluctant at first, Giulio makes them, and this time, they did not turn black and the Kirakiraru inside of them frees Ciel from the trance and breaks free from her self-doubt. When the three of them return to the real world to help the other Cures, Ciel goes ahead in making her parfait, using Giulio's waffles for the wings. Noir takes notice and fires an arrow in an attempt to attack her but Giulio steps in and takes the hit, gravely injuring him in the process. He tells Ciel to complete her sweet as he falls to the ground, and with that in mind, she does and it becomes her Animal Sweet, allowing her to become Cure Parfait. During the battle, she goes to catch Giulio and in the process, his rod turns into a new weapon for Parfait, the Rainbow Ribbon. After Parfait defeats Bibury, the other Cures watch in sadness as Pikario fades away, leaving a trail of Kirakiraru.
In episode 24, it is revealed that Pikario is now resting in Ichigo Mountain's shrine under the care of the legendary patisseries.
In episode 39, after a long period of rest, he finally wakes up, with new power bestowed upon him by Cure Lumiere. He saves the Cures in a pinch after they were badly beaten by a super-powered Grave and the brainwashed townspeople. In episode 40, he holds Grave off long enough to tell the Cures to make some more sweets so the kirakiraru within them can help them out against the darkness. When that plan ended up failing, the Cures had to battle Grave again, but were once again struggling. Pikario tried to help, but this time Grave overpowers him, shattering his rod and damaging him. However, he survives the attack, but appears to have lost his powers.
In episode 41, he starts to become reacquainted with Ciel, who bonds with him again quickly. As he improves on his ability to make sweets, an impostor makes his rounds during the night, stealing kirakiraru from some of the sweets shops. The next day, a group of infuriated shop owners arrive at Ciel's patisserie and accuse Pikario of stealing the kirakiraru, which in turned upset him and reminded him of his past as Giulio. He later isolates himself, with Ciel, along with Ichika, Himari, and Aoi, finding him afterward, but he still feels that he could never be absolved of his past sins and runs away conflicted. Later that night, Macaron and Chocolat expose the phony Pikario, which was a disguised Nendo. It was all part of Elisio's plan to alienate the townspeople. Ciel was later able to find Pikario and told him that he should keep pursuing his dream of being a patisserie like her and that they could do it together. While battling Elisio, Parfait tells him about the good she sees in her brother and that she would carry the weight of his dark past. After Elisio is defeated, Ciel proves her brother's innocence to the shopkeepers and Pikario gives them some of the waffles he had made, and they had enjoyed them.
He can disguise himself as a human named Kuroki Rio to spy on the Cures and infiltrate the middle school. He transforms into the Julio form by dramatically putting on his gold mask.
He possesses a rod that was given to him by Noir that he can use to fuse the Kirakiraru Thieves into one being or to extract the Kirakiraru from innocent people to power the weapon up. He transforms it by shouting "Noir Decoration!". The design and abilities of the weapon depend on the sweet that the person he stole the Kirakiraru from has consumed.
When purified, he possessed a newer rod powered by Cure Lumiere that was able to combat Grave's darkness. However, Grave ends up destroying the rod and shattering it into tiny pieces, which scattered throughout the town and helped guide the animals to the top of the mountain to aid the Cures.
Kirahoshi Ciel - Before being turned evil, Pikario trained with his sister in Paris to become professional bakers. After being purified, despite giving Ciel the cold shoulder at first, he later sacrifices himself so that she can turn into Cure Parfait. It is also revealed that Pikario longed to make Ciel happy through his sweets.
