Ogasawara Mao (小笠原まお Ogasawara Mao?) is a minor character who has an important role in the fourth episode of Heartcatch Pretty Cure!. Without knowing it, she influences Hanasaki Tsubomi and Kurumi Erika with her friendship with her tennis partner Kumazawa Ayumi. Her Heart Flower is the blue star, which symbolizes trust.
Although not much of Mao's personality has been shown, Mao is trustworthy and trusts most people, which mirrors her Heart Flower. Because of this, if she thinks she is not being trusted, or she does not trust someone, her Heart Flower will wither. However, although this is caused by Mao's fight with Ayumi, she is loyal to her, and refuses to take Erika's advice to find a new and better partner.
Kumazawa Ayumi: Mao is very close to Ayumi, and most likely considers her a best friend. They have been together for a long time playing tennis, and Mao cannot think about having another partner. This is what causes their short breakup when one thinks she is holding the other down.
