|“||Ready to match, Porco?||”|
Fio Piccolo is the female protagonist in Porco Rosso. She is Mr. Piccolo's granddaughter.
Fio Piccolo is a intelligent, friendly young aircraft designer that had recently moved from America to help with the Piccolo Aircraft Company to cope after the Great Depression. After persuading Porco Rosso to let her design his new aircraft, she challenges herself with the task of designing her first aircraft for an old war veteran. Because of the tight time schedule, the completed aircraft never had time to test, and so she quickly makes a small change in the aircraft for her to fit, as she is a flight engineer and will alter the aircraft as it flies. After Porco Rosso brings her to his secret island, it hints that Fio is fond of Porco Rosso.
At the end of the movie she becomes good friends with Gina.
Fio is 17 year old girl has ginger hair and dark eyes. She wears shirt that is white with blue lines (or a blue shirt with white checkers...it doesn't really matter) and blue pants/jeans with a belt. She also wears pearl earrings.
