Accord is a teacher at the Primp Town magic school. Although there is nothing particularly suspicious about Accord during the beginning of the game, later events suggest that Accord is anything but a normal teacher. Perhaps the most confusing event occurs in Puyo Puyo Fever - when you fight against Popoi, placing into question what he is and his real relationship to Accord.

Accord has long, curled light purple curly hair that reaches her waist. Her eyes are always shut, never seen with them open. A small pair of glasses sits on the bridge of her nose. She wears a long, white dress with cyan trim, a frilled ascot, indigo boots, and a round hat decorated with two wings at the front.
Between games her design receives minor changes. In Puyo Puyo Fever, her design gave her an appearance similar to a stereotypical pope, but later games would gradually tone down the similarities by changing her hat and removing the patterns on her dress. Her dress between Puyo Puyo Fever 2 and Puyo Puyo! 15th Anniversary would have yellow rims vertically, but starting with Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary it would have yellow rims horizontally.
Accord is generally kind and well-mannered, befitting of her job as a school teacher. At the same time, however, she is incredibly mysterious. She withholds information to a suspiciously high degree, not helped with her involvement in Puyo Puyo Fever's plot. She knows much more than she appears, leaving interpretation on what her true motives are.
Being a teacher, she is expected to be quite skilled in magic. Her spells are musical themed, sometimes with school-based imagery. She is also demonstrated to be somewhat physically strong, able to swing a huge mallet to knock out Raffine, and is skilled in throwing chalk.
Accord, being endowed in mystery, holds mysterious relationships with the other characters.
In the English translation of Puyo Puyo Fever, she seems angered at Raffina (Notably, In the original Japanese dialog, she isn't angered at Raffina, but still smashes her in the head with a mallet.) In contrast she compliments her in Puyo Puyo! 15th Anniversary.
Popoi is the black cat "puppet" that she almost constantly carries - exception being at the end of Puyo Puyo Fever, where he is seen on his own. It is unclear who or what he is, and how he is related to Accord.
In Puyo Puyo Fever, Accord loses her flying cane, prompting her to announce that she will award the one who finds it. At the end of Hara Hara Course, however, Raffina discoveres that she had never actually lost her flying cane, Raffina promptly being knocked unconscious by Accord herself. At the end of Waku Waku Course, she congratulates Amitie for "finding" her flying cane. By the kind request of Amitie, she refuses to give her the promised reward, leaving Amitie to sulk in self anger.
Accord also is the final opponent of the Run Run Course. She also teaches the player the basics of the game.
As in Fever, Accord is the final opponent in Run Run Course of the game. Like the last, she also teaches the player the basics of the game in the Run Run Course.
Accord and Popoi are paired up as one of the 22 playable characters.
Accord is one of the 24 playable characters. Her story mode involves her hearing rumors of a black shadow in Primp Town, so she and Popoi decide to investigate.
Ms. Accord's first opponent is Amitie. Accord runs into Amitie in the Magic School, reminding her that she and Sig are on day duty that day. Accord asks Amitie if she has the journal. Amitie nervously replies that she forgot the journal, saying that she was busy looking for a shadow. When Accord questions Amitie on the shadow, she is hesitant to answer, until Popoi pops in, challenging her to a Puyo battle so she can tell. After this, Amitie confesses that everyone in class has been talking about the shadow, and she herself has spent time looking for it. Accord and Popoi ponder on this, and tell Amitie to find Sig to return the journal.
Ms. Accord's second opponent is Sig. When Sig returns the journal, Accord begins to ask him questions about the black shadow. When Sig spaces out as he is prone to doing, Popoi challenges him to a Puyo battle so he will tell. After this, Sig confesses that he did see the black shadow, noting that it was drooling and floating. He speculates that it might be a rare type of bug. Accord sends Sig to find someone else who might have seen the shadow.
Ms. Accord's third opponent is Lidelle. When Lidelle enters the classroom, Accord calmly asks her if she saw the black shadow. Lidelle nervously states that she didn't see anything, but Popoi is not convinced. He challenges her to a Puyo battle so that she may talk. After this, Lidelle confesses that she did see the black shadow, noting that she couldn't tell what it looked like. She also says that Klug and Raffina are currently out looking for it. Accord sends Lidelle to find Klug for her.
Ms. Accord's fourth opponent is Klug. Klug notes that he is in a hurry and would be happy if he could move along. Accord asks him why he's in such a hurry, and asks if he's hiding something. Klug denies that he's hiding anything, but Popoi is quick to express his suspicion. Accord then challenges him to a Puyo match, saying that if she wins, Klug will have to tell her everything. After this, Klug confesses that he was on his way to the ruins to look for the black shadow, thinking it to be a new type of animal, and declares that he will be famous if he captures it. Klug also states that Raffina is also at the ruins, and is about to take his leave when Accord stops him. She states that as punishment for lying, he must go straight home, much to his dismay.
Ms. Accord's fifth opponent is Raffina. Accord travels to the ruins to find Raffina, who is surprised to see her. As Accord begins to question her, Raffina acts more and more suspicious, culminating in Popoi challenging her to a Puyo battle. After this, Raffina reluctantly confesses that she, too, is on the hunt for the black shadow. She speculates that it is probably a prince from another kingdom hiding from the public. Accord then states that she saw a muscular man in a black cloak wandering around. Raffina hurriedly takes her leave.
Ms. Accord's sixth opponent is Lemres. As Accord muses on the black shadow, Lemres pops in. Popoi is immediately suspicious of Lemres' sudden appearance. Lemres offers him marshmallows, but Popoi refuses. Accord apologizes on his behalf, saying that Popoi is being fussy. After the subsequent Puyo battle, Lemres notes that he and Feli were out looking for the black shadow, but the two got separated during the search. Accord suggests consulting her to learn more about the shadow.
Accord's seventh opponent is Feli. Accord finds Feli some distance away from the ruins. Upon getting her attention, Feli accuses Accord and Popoi of making Lemres disappear. Popoi is quick to deny this, but Feli has none of it, challenging them to a Puyo battle. After this, Accord points Feli in Lemres' direction.
Accord's eighth and final opponent is Ecolo. Accord finally encounters the black shadow, who wonders who she is. Accord introduces herself as the teacher of Primp Magic School, and notes that Ecolo exudes a very unusual aura. Ecolo replies they simply like fun things, and asks for a Puyo battle. After this, the two bid their farewells, but Accord remarks that she needs to keep an eye on him, just in case.
At release, Accord was only seen during tutorial, where she welcomes the player to Pwurp Island, explains the lore and guides the player through gameplay basics. To this day, Accord also sometimes appears at results screen for event quest, summarizing the player's progress.
Accord was added to the game as a blue card not until later. She is available in Magic Stone Gacha in limited periods only. She is in the same series with Strange Klug, Satan, Ecolo and Dark Arle, having similarly distributed skills and stats.
Accord also voices for tutorial videos on the Puyo Puyo!! Quest official site.
Accord is responsible for general coordination around the game, giving voiced instructions, warnings and congratulations.
- In the DS version of Puyo Puyo Fever, the tutorial music plays as her stage music in the HaraHara course rather than the original battle music. This makes Accord and Popoi the only characters who have their own exclusive themes in Puyo Puyo Fever, excluding the free battle theme that plays for Arle and Carbuncle.
- This music is used as her theme song in Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary.
- Her birthday along with Popoi's are the same date of Abraham Lincoln and George Washington.
