Dream Houses - Peppita Rosetti
Peppita's home would be more than just a home. It would be a movable home that suits her nomadic way of life. I can imagine the Rosetti troupe has their own ships, at least for the animals and equipment. In order to save money, they travel with the transport shuttles from location to location. I think when she starts to earn enough money and as she becomes old enough, Peppita would buy herself a ship, and it would reflect her success. It would be large with rooms for guests and friends and the rest of the Rosetti Troupe. The replicators would be filled with plenty of good food to eat, and there would be a room for her to practice her routines and a room filled with all of her accolades.
Character Facts - Peppita Rosetti
In the Japanese version of Till the End of Time, Peppita's name is Souffle.
Her Japanese voice actor is Masayo Kurata, and her English voice actor is Sherry Lynn.
In the Rosetti Troupe, she is referred to as the Fairy of Illusions.
Her father is a famous soldier in the Pangalactic Federation's army and a high-ranking one, though he isn't specifically named. (It's stated on Star Ocean Wikia that it's Commodore Whitcomb with various instances to back up the claim.)
Peppita has two toys for the Till the End of Time and, according to one picture I found googling Star Ocean merchandise, an alarm clock with her on the clock face. Whether that was released in Japan, I don't know. It was on a display someone snapped a picture of at around the time of Star Ocean 3's release.
Item Creation Stats:
Note: When you get Peppita on Moonbase, head immediately to the workshop to create the Potion of Youth (Fake) with Eliza and Mackwell. They are the only three who can create this particular item. I've tried it with Mackwell, Eliza, and Fayt, but I've not been successful. Don't forget!

From the in-game dictionary: ( Read more... )I've noticed that the in game dictionary for Till the End of Time has a strange tendency to lean towards redundancy.
Peppita is an interesting character for me, but she isn't a favorite female character. She's annoying but she's one that, if she annoys you, you can avoid recruiting her permanently. In that sense, for me, she's like Sophia - pink and fluffy in terms of personality. However, if you're aiming for the "defeat luther at level 1" battle trophy, you need her, Sophia and Fayt for that.
Peppita . . . is very much a romantic, a hopeful, and a bit of an adventurer. She also possess a bit of a bossy side and a gullible side. Given from what I've seen with her and dealt with in terms of leveling her up and the cut scenes, she does possess a sweet streak. In the manga, she has an instant crush on Fayt, and that shows her petty side as well. She's a vast mix in a very young character, and it's because she's endured so much - losing her mom, traveling a lot, never knowing who her father really is - in her short life.

This longing for a life of adventure really isn't apparent in Peppita for me. Yes, when it comes time to leave Moonbase, Peppita wants to leave with Fayt and friends, thinking she doesn't have anyone. However, she also knows it isn't true, but she also wants to do something. Her debut for the Rosetti Troupe has been cancelled twice now, due to attacks on the places where she's been, and it's frustrating for her. Above all, she wants to be a star. She wants to be famous throughout the universe. That's why she's excited to see Fayt and Sophia for the first time and she gives him her autograph, even though she hasn't been on the stage just yet. She definitely wants to vent her frustrations out on the appropriate forces responsible for delaying her debut.
Before this, I used to think that the Peppita/Roger pairing was quite viable - they're close enough to each other in age and have more in common than what she would with Fayt. However, this pairing only works in fanfiction, where all playable characters can be taken to fight Luther in the final battle. Cannonically speaking, the only way it could work is if both are recruited for the final battle over Albel and Nel. Given that Peppita joins the party (temporarily) shortly after obtaining Sophia, this is a trick and a half but can be pulled off, since Peppita starts out as a level one character.
The dances that Peppita is supposed to be really good at are probably her attacks that she can use after gaining the levels needed.
There is a lot with Peppita that can be explored in terms of fanfiction, and therefore can be developed for characterization.
