She wears a short circular skirt with pressed-in ridges with extra semicircular red sleeve around the edges, full lenght black tights and traditional geta sandals as the same color. As the other Friends, She also has her ears and wings that belongs to her species.
Fraternal Myotis' redesign has a completely different outfit, it is more closer to the asiatic culture, which can be explained by the animal's distribution she's based on.

Her hair are smoother and darker, the front fringe is shorter, which uncover the eyebrows, she holds a yellow bow attached to her hair. She wears a fur ruff around her neck. As the other Friends, She still has her ears and wings that belongs to her species.
In Real Life
The fraternal myotis is a species of vesper bat. An adult fraternal myotis has a body length of about 5 cm, a tail of about 4.5 cm, and a wing span of about 3.8 cm. This species is widespread but has a fragmented distribution. There is relatively little information available on population trends and threats. In Japan this species is listed as Vulnerable and in Russia it is listed as a rare species. The Chinese population could be a distinct species, but more research is required to clarify this. Listed as Data Deficient because of taxonomic uncertainty and lack of data.
- In Japan it is found in tree hollows during the day, but also some breeding colonies over 100 individuals have been found in houses. One small colony was also found in a cave. In Russia was found in caves (during winter) and rock cracks. The type series collected in China were taken from holes in bamboo stems.
