Meet Tassle the 'Flying Squirrel', who dreams of becoming the first person to invent the first actual flying machine! So of course she'll be known as the 'The Pioneer'!
I've always liked Tassle's role in the story: separated from most stereotypical female roles and instead entering the life of a mechanic and an inventor. That, and I've always found her dream of doing the 'impossible' appealing.
So far, her role as an inventor is more emphasized. Since there's bound to be obstacles Iron Tail can't overcome without help, that's where her creative mind comes into play. She stays at her town taking care of her father so she doesn't get much chance to travel around like the other characters do, but one way to reach her is to travel to her workshop via a magical teleporter thing (a relic left from ancient past), where she actually has a working one she once dug up.
