Jiggy Pepper wears the standard uniform that most Letter Bees wear, which is composed of the trademark jacket, pants, scarf, boots, hat, and thick brown gloves. Jiggy wears goggles while on his motorcycle. He has dark brown hair and blue eyes, with a scar going through his right eye horizontally, resembling the letter t.
PlotJiggy Pepper was first mentioned in chapter three of the manga and episode five of the anime by his adopted sister, Nelli. Nelli originally hated him because she blamed the death of her brother Nello on leaving them. She was going to steal Lag Seeing's crossing pass from Yodaka to Yuusari to deliver a letter that Nello had written to Jiggy before his death but was unable to when she was stopped from crossing by Signal. When Lag shot off a heart bullet at Nello's letter, it was revealed that the reason Jiggy had left Dead End Town and become a Letter Bee was because he wanted to get stronger for Nello and Nelli. In chapter twenty, Jiggy makes his first actual appearance, saving Lag from a gaichuu that trapped him in an illusion. He tells Lag that his heart must grow stronger so that the letter's heart - good or bad - wouldn't overwhelm him again, and he also thanked Lag for his efforts, which Nelli had disclosed in her letter to Jiggy. He is later seen in chapter forty, and is ordered by Largo Llyod to bring down Carbernet. Although skeptical, he allows Zazie to ride with him on his motorcycle to bring down the gaichuu. Together the letter bees, along with Moc Sullivan and Aria Link, manage to wound the Carbernet before it flies off to Yuusari. Jiggy later arrives with Zazie in tow at the climax of the battle with Carbernet. After the battle, Jiggy is present during the Beehive meeting and is shocked to hear that Lloyd has joined Reverse. He states to Garrard that he will make the judgement of Lloyd when the time comes and not before, and goes on deliveries again shortly after.
He cared for his adoptive siblings, which is why he became a Letter Bee. He had arranged for a church to be built in Kyrie so kids could learn to read and write. He has little speaking roles in the series, and even then would only speak if necessary.
Nelli is his adopted sister, Nelli hated him because she blamed the death of her brother Nello on his leaving them. She originally intended to get a Lettter Bee to send the letter Nello had written to Jiggy before he passed away, in order to make him feel guilty. After Lag revealed what was in Jiggy's heart, Nelli forgave him.Neli hated him because she blamed the death of her brother Nero on his leaving them. When Lag shot off a heart bullet at Nero's letter, it was revealed he wanted to get stronger for Neli.
Nello was Jiggy Pepper's adopted brother. He worshiped Jiggy and wanted to become a man like him, he also promised to protect Nelli. Unfortunately, he was very sick and Nelli tried her best to take care of him. One day when Nelli returned home after working at the church, she saw Nello crying while he was writing a letter to Jiggy, because he knew that he couldn't protect her. He died exactly a week later. He appeared in episode 6 season 1 in the anime.
Jiggy is a skilled Letter Bee, specializing in express deliveries. He is also skilled in killing Gaichuus. Jiggy's spirit amber is Gunjou, Sea Blue Ultramarine, which he executes through a Shindanjuu he carries besides his motorcycle. His dingo is hawk named Harry, who is capable of delivering letters himself. Largo Lloyd borrowed him while he was in Kyrie.
Jiggy owns a motorcycle that is powered by Heart, and would consume a large amount of it if it was ridden for long periods of time. Jiggy is able to ride it for seemingly hours on end without signs of fatigue, a testament to his skill as a Letter Bee.
"His eyes... It was the first time I'd seen the director's eyes fulled with so much determination." Jiggy to Aria.
"I know that someday, my little brother and sister will surely catch a star. If its Nelli and Nello, they'll do it for sure."
- He finished the letter bee exam in two days stated by Zazie
- His salary is apparently very large, as most of the funds used for building the church in Kyrie came from his wages.
- It is unknown how Jiggy Pepper got a scar on his face. It is believed he got it before becoming a Letter Bee, since he still had one in the memories of Nelli Pepper through his letter.
- In his name. "Jiggy" means nervous or trembling, which is the exact 'opposite' of his personality; but it could also refer to his life & past, since he was born & raised in a poor town. "Pepper" comes from a spicy ingredient, which may refer to his cool appearance.
