Akoya Gero (下呂あこや~ Gero Akoya) is a 2nd year at Binan High. He looks like an angel, and is as noble as an angel, but once he is made fun of, he turns into a snappy individual. It also appears that he doesn't seem to like Zao too much.
He transforms into "The Pearl Chevalier, Perlite". (Hanasakikeru Shinju no Shuvarie, Peruraito)
Akoya has pale pink hair that goes down to his chest and his bangs are parted so that two portions of his hair rests on either side of the front of his body. Akoya also has blue eyes and is the second tallest of the Earth Conquest Club.
As a student council member, he wears: a pair of long white pants, a white tunic uniform which he has zipped up and a pair of white shoes.
When he transforms into The Pearl Chevalier, Perlite, he wears: a black military-styled coat with red and gold cufflinks having a red cape attached to the medallion just below his neck, a pair of white silk gloves and tight black pants that are tucked into his pair of over the knee height black bootswith red straps on top to keep them in place.
Gero is a young man with exquisite tastes and dislikes anything that is not beautiful. His high appreciation for beauty is shown by his aura further emphasized by his angelic yet androgynous features. Due to this, he is competitive with Ryu as shown in the Pretty Boy Contest in episode 3
Despite being the most cunning of the Conquest Club, he can be easily persuaded by flattery and praise as shown in the manga. In the anime, he is shown to have an easily flustered side as shown in episode 8 when he is helped up by Naruko. Compared to the other members of the Student Council, he is more sensitive in picking up energies and is good at classifying them as either positive or negative.
