Blanc (ブラン, Buran) (Born on January 1st) is the human Form of White Heart, the CPU of Lowee. She is one of the main characters out of the series. She is a Goddess who watches over the land and deeply cares for its people, including Rom and Ram.
However, Blanc also has a violent temper and curses like a temperamental high school student when upset or angered, which is, unfortunately for everyone else, all the time. Normally, though, she appears to be quiet and reserved, with a keen interest in writing. Her weapon is a hammer/mallet that becomes an axe/maul upon transforming into White Heart.

A quiet and introverted girl who may seem to be lifeless, apathetic, and uncompassionate in comparison to others (with Neptune once comparing her to a doll). She usually speaks with a calm, monotonous voice, rarely adding any emotion to it. She enjoys simple hobbies such as reading in her spare time and writing, something she is overly passionate about and dreams of one day mastering as an author. However, unknown to herself, she isn't very good at it and everyone struggles to be honest with her. While she cares deeply for her younger sisters, they anger her (perhaps not as much others) and most of her stress comes from not knowing how to act around them as well as showing her softer side to others.
Underneath her calm exterior is an angry, raged filled girl ready to yell at or murder the first person who pisses her off. This is intentionally triggered by some people, such as Vert, whom Blanc is incredibly jealous of due to her bigger breasts, or just about anyone who mentions her small breasts, intentional or unintentional.
While she argues a lot with Vert, they are shown to get along, albeit rarely. She also has strong hatred towards Neptune that is revealed to be a form of jealousy, and she may have a small respect/liking for Nisa and has implied that she doesn't want innocent to people involved with her fights if they have done nothing to set her off.
In Mk2, Blanc is much more prone to anger than in the first game most likely due to Rom and Ram. She has also become very tired and quiet due to their rowdy, naughty behavior to the point of being seemingly reserved. She has a better relationship with the other CPU's though, especially Neptune. She has also taken a liking to Nepgear, due to the fact that she is more sensible and rambunctious than Neptune and is grateful to her for watching over her little sisters, as well as keeping them entertained whenever she wants to have time for herself they also share a common interest in reading and she has even allowed Nepgear to borrow a few of her books.
During the events in Victory, Blanc has become antagonistic towards the others due to her decrease in shares and power. It also showed her vulnerable side when Noire yelled at her so much she broke down in tears. Once Lowee was returned to her later in the game, Blanc had become friendly, but she was still on bad terms with Noire.
In the Manga she comes off as more quiet and stoic, only making blunt comments on occasion. Though later on she gained her temperamental side like in the games.
White Heart (ホワイトハート, Howaitohato) is Blanc's HDD Form. Known to being the most violent of the four Goddesses with a temper to match, she seems the least changed between forms in terms of personality, other then the fact she gets much angrier quicker. White Heart's appearance indicates she may be the youngest of the four, considering her phisique remains practically unchanged. Even though her body doesn't change much, she's known to be the most serious and mature one out of the four CPUs. She's known to take her duties as a Goddess quite seriously. Although she rarely shows it, she does have a strong sense of empathy and loyalty. However she shows no mercy towards her enemies and is ready to kill them all for her land's and people's sake.
During the intro movie, White Heart is the Goddess to mention that Purple Heart was not picked by any of the others. She wanted to keep Green Heart around, who wanted to keep Black Heart around, while Black Heart picked her due to her bad attitude.
Interestingly enough, when Blanc transforms in mk2, she usually becomes louder and more temperamental, cursing more often and being less quiet, compared to how she was acting prior.
Blanc is a short (144 cm; 4 ft 9in), pale skinned girl with measurements consisting of 72A, 53w, 77H, and weight of 36kg (~79Ibs). She has sandy-brown colored hair reaching her neck and expressionless, dull blue eyes. On top of her head Blanc wears a big white cap with light blue ruffles and a brown and gold under and center piece. Depending on the weather and location, Blanc may change her outfit. Such as wearing an opened white jacket with powder blue markings, dark brown linings, and light colored brown fur when outside or when it's cold. But when inside or during warm weather she may take it off to reveal a white dress with dark brown lining and markings on it. Around her neck is a light blue choker with a single white stripe in the middle and a blue gem/badge in the center. She also wears power blue sandals with a white ribbon around in her right leg resembling a bandage. Because of her height Blanc looks like 10 to 14 years old and often mistaken as such which triggers her temper.
As White Heart, Blanc turns into a more physically fit and even stronger young woman. Blanc's hair turns light blue colored and remains the same shape but has become messier with very long strands on the sides of her head, almost reaching her waist. She also gains a cowlick. Her eyes turn a crimson red in color, while her outfit resembles a white bathing suit with unattached sleeves. The extra colors consist of black and light blue. She grows six centimeters in this Form. Just like in her normal form she is either expressionless or frowning.
In Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, Blanc has changed her entire outfit. It is inspired by a Japanese shrine maiden attire and consists of a red dress with fold-skirt and a leafy pattern along the bottom. The dress has a black tank top piece with an accessory with red lining and a blue sphere in the center with thin strings. At the top of the dress is a golden flower piece with a black strap connecting around her waist. Over this is a white jacket with a big tassel hanging on the ends of both sleeves with flowers. On her right arm is a bracelet, made with oversized black and white beads. Her white cap has gained red and pink petal pattern with a black circled segment in the center. She also has on thigh high stockings with red lining and black sandals with red ribbons at the toe and flower symbols.
Blanc's HDD Form remains mainly the same but reflects he color scheme from pale blue to red. Her attire has a shiny red material on the top, segments and lining. The fingers of her gloves are black. While she has multiple red box like pieces on her chest and neck. Her lower region is completely red colored. While the bottom of her boots resemble sandals with the red coloring and are black on bottom.
- A white themed school uniform with sailor-like beret.
- A more mature school uniform with the same hat and red armband on her left sleeve.
- Bathing towel
- Santa outfit
- A pale blue dress with white ruffles lining it and white stockings and star hairclips.
During the great console war, all of the girls fought in order to claim the status of true Goddess. However, they were equal in strength and knew nobody would win. So the three Goddesses began to plot against Purple Heart, who had become quite full of herself and her ability. This was part of the reason she was exiled. Also this was due to the fact nobody wanted to personally fight her, and so the three ganged up against her and took her down with ease.
The Financier announces to Blanc that some travelers request an audience with her, at first she had to be persuaded to see them. But as soon as she sees Neptune she treats her very rudely and soon not being able to stand Neptune's talk of her expectations from the Goddess of Lowee, Blanc had forced them out and out of anger told them never to come back. Moments later she was approached by the Evangelist Conversation telling her about her shameful performance earlier when Blanc complains about the increasing casualties from monsters. The Evangelist then reminds her of her character as a Goddess, pissing Blanc off before leaving.
Later in her HDD Form in a dungeon she approached the group and demands a fight with Neptune who insists on battling with her friends. At first Neptune was surprised that Neptune would involve her friends with this, since Purple Heart wouldn't have done this until remembering she lost her memories. Upon losing she retreats until later.
One random event begins with Gust trying to get Blanc to give her something, so Blanc gave her a scarf she's worn. But is then asked for to autograph it, to which she questions the reason for. Gust explains it's for an experiment but she doesn't exactly tell her everything and leaves.
Later she returns and tells Blanc she put the scarf on the internet auction and that it sold the most out of all the Goddesses autographed items - twice as much as Green Heart's ribbon and Black Heart's socks. She then mentions that they should make money, they can just sell her things. This makes Blanc annoyed...
In town of Lowee. Blanc invites Gust to move there, as she makes great synthesized items and adds that it'll make her useful. While Gust does appreciate this, she explains that she wants to see the world and explore some more, find rare ingredients, travel and learn new techniques. A little upset, but not angry, Blanc knows that she can't force Gust to change her mind so she'll instead wait for her to tell her when she is willing to move here.
In another event, Nisa comes to see Blanc. She mentions seeing someone exactly like her at the convention at Planeptune she been at, handing out books to others. Blanc asked how she knew, and if she went solo or with a group. Nisa explains that she was part of security there and wanted to look around but she didn't get a chance to. Blanc then hands her one of her books and Nisa suddenly becomes excited and asks to read it there... However... once she does, she doen't really get it but claims it's deep in order tio make Blanc happy. Who then proceeds to go and get the other stories. After she leaves, Nisa claims it's appalling...
Later, Nisa is seen trying to help two bandits who were running away from a 'monster', later revealed to be Lady White Heart. Nisa is shocked, until learning that they insulted her chest and while Nisa at first doesn't agree with trying to kill the in her HDD Form, they insult her as well, angering both girls, who attack the bandits.
In her bedroom sometime later, Blanc realizes new books from IF publisher are coming and she was too busy to notice it, then notices how much it's snowing outside and mentions not wanting to go out in it. She contemplates if she should send the Financier until recalling that she's out of groceries. So instead blanc calls her useless, and gives her an (unfair) pay cut while writing down everything she needs.
In the next event, Blanc had just finished her task of the day and now has some free time to write. Unfortunately, she is without inspiration. So she decides to browse the forums until three hours later when she realizes she replied too many times and got kicked off. Later she has finally wrote a "masterpiece". She feels 500 copies will be enough, but then worries she may sell out.
Only three copies sold...
She begins to doubt herself while wondering why this keeps happening. Then questions herself what she did wrong before realizing no answer exits other than the fact they must hate the cover of the book. So deciding she must go and redo it, Blanc goes to find an illustrator.
Hyperdimension Neptunia Manga Edit
Blanc appears along side the other Goddesses. In the manga, which takes place directly after the first game and before the second, the Goddesses return to Celestia, only to be kicked out by Histoire, upon seeing them how lazy the girls had become after the events with Arfoire's plot. So they stay at Noire's place until she scolds them for being lazy also and insists they don't make a mess if they have no intentions of cleaning. So they try with house work and only cause more problems. Blanc has trouble controlling the vacuum.
Blanc also appears to be on better terms with the other Goddesses, especially with Neptune, as seen in the first chapter, when she and Neptune were killing cockroaches in their HDD Forms together and even shown high-fiving when they thought that they won. In the second chapter, they celebrated Christmas at Blanc's place. She also matured somewhat, not getting as angry as she does in the games.
At the end of the second chapter, she is shown with a "smile of an angel".
Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2/Re;Birth 2Edit
She and the other Goddesses fought CFW Magic and were defeated. They were held captive in Gamindustri Graveyard until they were rescued by rescued by Nepgear's party and until then, Mina Nishizawa took her place as the CPU of Lowee in her absence.
White Heart matured in mk2/Re;Birth 2 and does show some love and care for her sisters when they rescued her. She even reads a book on how to compliment them for their hard work taking care of Lowee. Despite this though, she is often annoyed with their antics as they constantly annoy her and make her mad, due to it being funny to them. This could be a reason she's more prone to anger.
Hyperdimension Neptunia the Animation Edit
In the first episode, while video chatting with Vert about the friendship treaty, she gets annoyed by Rom and Ram (mainly Ram) when the latter two find out that both Nepgear and Uni were in Lastation, and why they couldn't join them as well. This cause Blanc to yell at them, and in response Ram yells back, arguing that it's not fair.
Hyperdimension Neptunia VictoryEdit
The Blanc in this game is not the same one as the Blanc in the parallel world.
She retains the same personality even though she's more self-centered and prone to anger. Neptune's first greeting with her wasn't very friendly and she's also gained bad blood with Noire.
Despite this, she appears to be more open as well, seen when she, Plutia , and even Neptune become friends. Also beneath her easily angered and tough personality, lies a more shy, sensitive and lonely young girl.
Blanc is seen in Chapter 2 talking to her Minister about how Lastation is getting popular. She goes to confront Noire but before their battle began she was interrupted by a Lastation soldier who told that one of her factories is being attacked.
In Chapter 3, when Noire, Neptune and Plutia enter Lowee's Basilicom, Blanc tells her Minister that she will fight the CPU's for real as a message to her people. Before the battle, Abnes arrives to film the entire fight, despite Neptune's objections as Iris Heart's torture might be too much for young and sensitive viewers. Blanc was hardly defeated on live television and was humiliated by Abnes, so much so that she lost all of her followers and her powers as well. This was the perfect opportunity for her Minister, revealed to be Mr. Badd of the Seven Sages, to take control of Lowee and locked Blanc up, alongside those who defeated her. She sits in silence and shock (though she doesn't show the shock) until Noire yells at her to speak, to which she starts to cry, and slaps Plutia who tries to console her. She began to explain that she did everything on her own. After her ranting, Plutia transforms into Iris Heart and tells Blanc to reclaim her Nation and offers her to be her friend along with Neptune and Noire (not before making Blanc cry once more), the latter of which was forced to agree or face her wrath. Before Mr. Badd's broadcast began, the CPus arrive just in time. They prepare to face off but he points out that there are only three CPUs since Blanc lost all of her faith. When the Hearts put their faith in Blanc it is enough for her to transform into White Heart, thus renewing her confidence enough to defeat Mr. Badd. After the battle, White Heart and Iris Heart beat the crap out of Mr. Badd forcing him to confess, and White Heart warns the citizens of Lowee not to doubt her ever again and if they did, they would suffer the ame fate as her former Minister.

- Interestingly, the spelling "Blanc" refers to a male subject noun (Blanche refers to a female subject noun.)

- In Re;Birth1, it may be that Ganache has developed feelings for Lady White Heart. However, these rumors have never been confirmed.

- In one of her official images, Blanc is shown to be doing martial arts, which means she could be an adept at Martial Arts.
- Blanc is suffering from slight bouts of insomnia, since she often stays awake to write her books.

- The idea was not scraped though; she dons a bow in Victory when equipped with her basic processor units.
- Blanc is the most popular character out of the series.
- In the first Neptunia popularity poll, Blanc placed 7th, just behind IF and beating Vert by 184 points.
- In the 2014 (second) poll, however, Blanc placed 1st with almost 14,000 votes more than IF, who placed second.

- This may be a reference how many Falcom games were on Nintendo consoles.

- In fact, as a nod to this, the tassel's on Blanc's sleeves are actually Hanafuda Cards, a product Nintendo made before they made the video games. They also resemble the Famicom's controller.
- Blanc's foulmouth is a nod to Travis Touchdown from "No More Heroes" and Conker the Squirrel from the infamous "Conker's Bad Fur Day". Both games made for their respective Nintendo systems and have offensive language.
- In Mugen Souls Z, Blanc's angry expression can be used as a facial feature for peons.
- In Mk2, there is a DLC event of it called Maid CPU's, note that Rom and Ram made a Mont Blanc for Blanc. The reason is because Mont Blanc and Blanc are similar names.
- Blanc's aggressive personality and toughness reflect Nintendo's similar attitude at times their ability to endure losses.
- Her small build reflects both Nintendo's kid leaning marketing and policies and perhaps the case where Nintendo (a small company at the time) fought Universal Studios (a major studio) in court over the Kong and won.
- Her high defense and HP references how Nintendo consoles are known to be very durable.
