Belldandy is a goddess from Heaven and the title character of the Oh! My Goddess series. She first appeared to Keiichi to grant him a wish. His subsequent wish, "I wish for a goddess like you to stay by my side forever", binds Belldandy to Earth and subsequently sets off the main plot of the series. Belldandy is exceptionally kind-hearted, even for a goddess. She can easily sense other people's emotions and tries her best to be empathetic to all those around her, displaying a combination of serene beauty and acceptance. If someone is in trouble, especially Keiichi, she would not hesitate for a second to do anything that she could to save that person. She rarely holds a grudge and is always willing to forgive anyone who does injury to her. Even though Belldandy tries her best to be as kind as possible, occasionally she can become very insecure and sad, if confronted with an implication that involves Keiichi in one way or another. Situations (due to misunderstandings) occasionally cause her emotions to be conflicted between wanting to stay with Keiichi and thinking he does not want her to stay, and whether she should return home. At times like these, only Keiichi can bring her back to her senses by telling her that he wants her by his side forever. Belldandy also displays quite a bit of naiveté in the series, often being ignorant of the intentions of those around her who would cause her harm. Though Belldandy can be naïve at times, like any other girl she gets jealous - though unlike other girls, because of her powers her jealousy can be a little explosive, letting out a blast of powers, like causing the weather to change. While this is primarily accepted as her usual personality, Belldandy was noticeably less naïve and more “normal” in early manga chapters than in later depictions, particularity in the anime and ova series. These traits of minor impulsiveness and annoyance were eventually dropped altogether.
