Tailred is a teenage girl who is a slightly smaller and younger version of Soji Mitsuka. She has a thin, lanky body, short arms and small hands, and despite being in her early to mid teens, has yet to develop a bust. As such, her tight-fitting battle outfit shows her noticable flat chest. TailRed has very long hair, that reaches almost to her ankles, and is done up in the twin tails hairstyle. Her hair color is that of bold, bright red, with the tips of her twin tails changing from red to flaming yellow. She has a round face with typical little girl 'big eyes', deep violet in color, and a medium beige skin tone.
The red and white themed Tail Gear that she wears in battle resembles a little girl's one piece tank swim suit, but with arm, hip, and leg ornaments, as well as knee-high go-go boots, added for extra reinforcement and protection. She wears black gloves to protect her hands. Her main weapon is two twin swords that are concealed in her Tail Gear. TailRed also wears wing-shaped ornaments that hold her hair into the twin tails. When she is using only one of her swords, it always seems to be on fire, being engulfed with red and yellow flames.
( As reveled in one of the episodes, TailRed is an anatomically correct female bodied teenage girl. )
After Soji goes through a Henshin ( Transformation Sequence ), they take on the physical appearance and mentality of an adolescent, teenage girl, who at the beginning of her first battle with an Elemelian, names herself, " TailRed ". TailRed retains all the memories that Soji has, but now must function with a female mind and body. Her first efforts to direct her body, and command her power suit, called TailGear, have to be learned during the heat of her first battle with Lizardguildy. However, TailRed learns quick and fast, using her small, light body to maneuver around Lizardguildy with speed and agility. Just as quick, TailRed learns how to access and use her weapons. With some difficulty, TailRed overcomes and vanquishes Lizardguildy, using a combination of her power attributes, as well as her ability to 'think fast on her feet'. Later, with TailRed gaining more experience and self-confidence, she is able to defeat a powered-up Dragguildy, the Leader of the Elemelians.
Due to her female alter ego, Tail Red, becoming popular quickly after her debut in battle at the Exhibition Hall, and since she had become the first Twin Tail Warrior to transform and engage the monsters in battle, Tail Red becomes the leader of the Twin Tail Warriors. TailRed is surprisingly adept at organizational skills and leadership abilities, something that Soji lacks. However, she is hampered somewhat by her habit of not thinking things through before she acts. She is fierce in battle, but not overly confident in her abilities. Her self-confidence is damaged during a battle late in the series, but she eventually recovers it with a dream sequence wherein she reviews and follows her true conscience and free will. TailRed is very compassionate, and will help out any who are being oppressed, especially girls who are having their twin tail attribute stolen from them by the Elemelians.
Her weapons are Sword of Fire, Brake Release, Aura Pillar, and Blazer Blade (炎の剣ブレイザーブレイド Honō no Ken Bureizā Bureido?). In Episode 4 of the anime, she gains two power-up forms: Riser Chain and Faller Chain. As shown in Episode 12, she later gains Ultimate Chain (her strongest form) after regaining her Twintail Elémera, by accessing the power in the twin barrettes that Twoearle had given to her, thereby restoring that which she lost to the monster Tyrannoguildy in a previous encounter.
