Ekaterina (エカテリーナ Ekaterīna?) is Kongou Mitsuko's pet python.


Ekaterina is a python with a predominantly brown and black color. The top part of her head is black, with a brown underbelly and splotches of light brown on her body. She is also depicted with black pupils. Ekaterina is often seen with a red ribbon wrapped around her neck and calmly wrapped around Kongou's body.[2][3]

Based on her appearance, Ekaterina is possibly a ball python.

She is taken along by Kongou when she was invited to model swimsuits and shows her to the rest of the group while showing herself off in her swimsuit. Most of the girls were freaked out, but Uiharu Kazari took an immediate liking to the snake.[2] Later, Kongou mentions her while she was under MAR's custody and comments that she'll get worried if Kongou doesn't come back soon.[4]
