Rapunzel (ラプンツェル Rapuntseru), also known as Zel (ツェル), is an amnesiac girl who is taken in by Primavera and joins the Wandering Dogs. She first appears in Season 2.
Zel is a girl said to be about Rose's age, with noticeably long light brown hair and green eyes. In her first appearance, she is shown wearing only a white chemise, but later on she gains a new outfit: a long orange, white, and blue dress with separate matching sleeves. She also wears a barrette and a braid in her hair, white socks, and pink shoes.
Zel is a cheerful, strong-willed girl with natural leadership qualities, being able to recognize the Wandering Dogs' talents and putting them to good use. Despite her anxieties over her amnesia, she still manages to remain positive about her new life.

Role in the Story
Zel is introduced in 1948 running from some thugs, where she is hit by Rose's car and gets amnesia. She's given the temporary name of Rapunzel, Zel for short, and begins making friends with the Wandering Dogs, Oliver, Charles, and Nina.
Zel discovers that she knows Chinese after hearing some Chinese people out on the street. The Wandering Dogs use this newfound skill to spy on some shady Chinese people and expose their backdoor employment agency.
Zel eventually regains her memories, where it's revealed that she's an assassin by the name of Hotarubi. Her father is being held hostage by Wang, who ordered her to assassinate Rose. She was supposed to pretend to have amnesia and be accepted into Primavera, except she actually got amnesia.
Zel is unable to carry through with Rose's assassination and reveals everything to her friends, who are initially skeptical but come to accept her. The Wandering Dogs then formulate a plan to rescue Zel's father with Rose's help. After the two reunite, they go into hiding in a faraway country.
Zel returns to Japan in 1950 and reunites with her friends. She becomes heartbroken over hearing of Oliver's death and later joins Jeanne to fight Primavera.
During the final battle, Zel engages Maurice and learns that he was the one responsible for Oliver dying. The Wandering Dogs assist Zel in her fight and she delivers the killing blow on Maurice using Oliver's kicking move.
