Princess Peach (JP) (formerly known Princess Toadstool prior to Super Mario 64), commonly known as Peach, is a character in the critically acclaimed Super Mario series. She's usually portrayed as the damsel in distress, and has been kidnapped by Bowser numerous times.
Mario and Luigi, the protagonists of the series, always come to Peach's rescue and save the Mushroom Kingdom when needed the most. Other characters also help rescue the princess, such as Yoshi, Toad, Wario and a cast of others in the Mario RPGs.
While it doesn't seem like she has a father, her trustworthy steward Toadsworth seems to act as some kind of father figure toward her, and is always keen on keeping her safe (though because of his age, he is not able to stop the forces of Bowser's army). Her father has been mentioned in the first Nintendo Adventure Book Double Trouble.
Creation and Modeling
Before Yoichi Kotabe devised Peach's final character revision, one design, seen on the Super Mario Bros. Japanese box art, shows her with a long-sleeved dress, no gloves, strawberry-blonde hair, and crown jewels.
In the Japanese strategy guide How to Win at Super Mario Bros., describes her as a Toad, having a mushroom cap, a tiara and a gown. Peach's classic dress had a ribbon around the waist and was darker pink below her knees.
Peach's is generally known for being sweet and well mannered. Usually she never shows an aggressiveness when she fights or confronts her enemies. One of her most well known traits is her ability to float in the air with her large skirt, and soon after with her parasol.
This was first shown during her appearance in Super Mario Bros. 2. In Super Princess Peach, she shows frantic mood swings from joy, gloom, calm, and rage (each giving her a special power), also showing Bowser that she is capable of protecting herself.
Peach is also willing to have Bowser team up with her and the Mario Bros. when a bigger evil invades the Mushroom Kingdom. The Paper Mario series shows that she has a more bratty behavior. She also has a very friendly behavior towards Luigi.
