Pearl and Dearl Aragonite are twins whose parents were pharmacists in Brilliant City. A medicinal mishap took their lives, however, making their children orphans and forcing them to fend for themselves and look after each other. They live on the outskirts of Brilliant City and make a living through their pharmacy in the town marketplace, where they sell a wide range of potions and elixirs. Their actual talent for chemistry is debatable, though.
Pearl is a lively and energetic girl, and serves as the frontman for their business, trying to shill whatever potion she can to people passing by. She's always keen to boost business by any means possible, and one recurring idea is to hijack By and C-Mond as mascots - it never works out, though.
She's very chipper and enthusiastic, almost to the point of appearing one-track-minded, but she's still very human. She doesn't hide her emotions - she's always concerned for Dearl's wellbeing, and she's still quite torn up over her parents' death and her rough childhood.
Dearl is a quiet and withdrawn boy, though with a natural talent for concocting medicines, something he learnt from his father and his love for reading.
Although shy, this trait isn't anywhere near as exaggerated as with the likes of Thyst; he very rarely talks to people when Pearl is about, and on his own he falls victim to every social blunder imaginable. He always means well and tries his hardest to help and protect his twin sister, though his competence is rather lacking, especially without her confidence (or pigheaded-ness, alternately) to back up his actions.

Pearl and Dearl's parents worked in a pharmacy, but when the children were seven years old, a freak explosion during medicine preparation took the lives of their parents. Following that, they took up the mantle and opened a small pharmacy on the edge of town, the two living together.
Pearl is cheerful and full of vigour, but is also very familial, taking responsibility for their daily livelihood. Meanwhile, Dearl has a quiet and gloomy attitude, but has great talent for brewing medicine, clearly inherited from their parents. Pearl's hobby is cooking; Dearl's hobby is reading.

Dearl's name is translated as Dale in the Game Boy version. Either translation is correct, though Dearl is preferred to keep the name theme running. "Pearl & Dale" hasn't as much ring to it.
Dearl is a secret character in the Game Boy version. For information on how to unlock him, see the appropriate page.
Pearl and Dearl show you how to play the game.
Pearl offends everyone she meets in her quest to find Dearl.
The duo try to concoct the ultimate potion, with variable results.
Pearl and Dearl get their bromance on. (Is it still a bromance is they're mixed gender twins?)
Dearl offends everyone he meets in his quest to find Pearl.
Pearl's attack pattern is to fill all rows but the far left. The reverse of Rald's, it shares the same traits; although requiring a lot of chains to fill up the enemy's screen, constantly filling in their gaps is a brilliant tactic to make life tough for them.
When facing Pearl as an opponent, look for a way into the left column to whittle down the blocks.
