—Michelle Fairchild, "Fashion Backwards"

Click here to see quotes from Michelle Fairchild.

Michelle Fairchild (birth last name Nelson) is one of the main protagonists of PINY Institute of New York. In "Wardrobe Malfunction", she finds out that Julia Cooper is her long lost sister. Michelle is a student at PINY: Pinypon Institute of New York in New York. She is also a budding fashion designer. In "Once Upon a Time" Michelle transforms into the superheroine Galactic Princess, gaining the power of conjuring objects out of thin air and fighting with her Light-Katana.


She is a kind, impulsive, and creative 14-year old designer, and the new girl at PINY. She is a part of the Indie Girls team. Michelle is a girl of humble origins and possesses a great talent for design and fashion. She has always dreamed of being able to create her own brand of clothing and now she has become a PINY student, her dream could come true. Her creativity and perseverance will certainly be key to achieving her dreams.

She is quite friendly and speaks for her human rights. Let's say, Julia Cooper wouldn't get in her way for being well... Michelle Fairchild has two roommates, Tasha and Lilith, who are also her best friends in the school. They hang out together and support each other.

Michelle points out where she's gone wrong. An example is shown in the episode Hire Me. Michelle was part of a TV show hosted by Annie Summers but she finally realized having the job was a big mistake as in Secret-Non-Admirer she publishes a picture of Julia and didn't own up to it because she was scared of losing her scholarship. Michelle also has a huge crush on Will.

Michelle is sweet and determined. She will stop at nothing when she has her mind set to get whatever she wants! She can be stubborn at times, though. For example, in episode 26, " Who is Michelle", she is mean to her best friends because the fact that she is adopted makes her not feel like herself anymore - she feels like nobody but at the end of the episode, she manages to apologize to her friends. However, she is a very sweet person in the long run. She is also quite clumsy, especially around Julia.
