Pazu is a primary protagonist of Laputa: Castle in the Sky and becomes Sheeta's closest friend. It is implied that he develops romantic feelings for her.

Pazu is an orphan who lives alone in a small cottage atop a hill in Slag Ravine. He promised his dead father he would find Laputa and prove him right.

Pazu discovered Sheeta slowly floating down from the sky. He took her home and cared for her until she woke. Upon hearing her story he vowed to help her. The two went through a lot. Being chased by Pirates as well as the army. Eventually both of them are caught by the army. But, Pazu was set free upon Sheeta's promise to stay with them and help them find Laputa.

Upon Pazu's return to his home he was captured by the pirates that chased them earlier. He teamed up with the pirates to help Sheeta escape the army. Once rescued they continued to work with the pirates to find Laputa. Discovering that the pirates where actually good and kind. During their travels Pazu and Sheeta grow closer.
