Mirai Asahina, a thirteen-year-old girl who is excited by various things, goes with her stuffed bear, Mofurun, to investigate a mysterious object that fell from the sky. There, she meets a young magician named Liko who is searching for something known as the Linkle Stone Emerald. When dark servants of Dokuroxy come seeking the Linkle Stone Emerald, Mirai and Liko join hands with Mofurun and transform into the legendary magicians known as the Pretty Cures to fight against them. Thus, Mirai joins Liko in attending Magic School, where they must learn how to use magic while also fighting off Dokuroxy's minions.
The Maho Girls Pretty Cures are legendary magicians who once fought against evil, each possessing immensely powerful magic and items called "Linkle Stones" (リンクルストーン, Rinkuru Sutōn). Today, Mirai and Liko both inherit the powers of the legendary magicians in order to search for the Emerald Linkle Stone. All magicians in the Magical World can perform spells with their wands by chanting the phrase "Cure Up RaPaPa!" (キュアップ・ラパパ！, Kyuappu RaPaPa!). Using the power of the Linkle Stones, Mirai and Liko can transform into Pretty Cures by holding hands with Mofurun and chanting "Miracle Magical Jewelyre" (ミラクル・マジカル・ジュエリーレ, Mirakuru Majikaru Juerīre), and can perform purifying attacks with the Linkle Stick (リンクルステッキ, Rinkuru Sutekki). By using different Linkle Stones, the Cures can transform into four different styles; Diamond, Ruby, Sapphire, and Topaz, allowing them to use different kinds of magic. Cure Felice uses the Linkle Smartbook (リンクルスマホン, Rinkuru Sumahon) and Linkle Stone Emerald to transform with chanting "Felice Fun Fun Flowerle" (フェリーチェ・ファンファン・フラワーレ, Ferīche Fan Fan Furawāre) and attacks with Flower Echo Wand (フラワーエコーワンド, Furawā Ekō Wando). Later, they receive the Rainbow Carriage (レインボーキャリッジ, Reinbō Kyarijji) to use more powerful attacks later in the series, and the new Over The Rainbow/Alexandrite Style.Mirai Asahina (朝日奈 みらい, Asahina Mirai) / Cure Miracle (キュアミラクル, Kyua Mirakuru)

He used to teach at the Magic School as Kushi and was the close friend of the Headmaster. Kushi tried to study magic to prevent a great calamity. When he did not find the answers he was searching for, he turned to dark magic as a means. These means ended up self-destructive on his body, turning him into a skeleton, and he became obsessed with the Linkle Stone Emerald.
After obtaining the Linkle Stone Emerald and Smartbook, he absorbs their powers to transform into a giant demonic skeleton to fight Pretty Cure.
