Pacifica Northwest is a character from Gravity Falls and is a major character in The Knights of the Multiverse. Originally as stuck-up and pretentious as the rest of her family, after the "interesting" events of the summer, she decided to move away from her family's dotty history and joined with The Knights to make a real difference and prove that the Northwest family can do some good.
Being raised by shrewd and penny-pinching parents that made her believe that she had to be perfect no matter what and that beauty is everything, Pacifica used to be stuck-up, egotistical, arrogant, snotty, and just plain unpleasant, looking down badly on "weirdos" and always lording over her ancestry. Now, after learning the truth of her family's history of lies and helping her former rivals Dipper and Mabel Pines save Gravity Falls during Weirdmageddon, she's been trying to find a way to better herself and veer away from her family's misdeeds. Her trip of self-discovery also humbled her a great deal, giving a sarcastic and outgoing attitude. Her experience with the strange creatures from her hometown of Gravity Falls has also made her very "battle-hardened" to the insanity of this (and other) worlds, keeping a cool demeanor even in the strangest/most mundane of situations.
In the Mini-Series, she still shows reflections of her parents' "teachings", such as being obsessed with her looks, complaining every time she gets even a speck of dirt on her, and especially when the bottom part of her hair got cut during one of the battles. But, by the end of the mini-series though, she finally get it through her head that looks aren't everything.
She's also secretly really good at puns.
After the events of Weird-maggedon, Pacifica's father foolishly pledged allegiance to Bill Cipher and placed all of his money in "weirdness bonds". As a result, he had to sell the family mansion to preserve his family's fortune (what little was left, anyway). After this, Pacifica decided to sneak away from her parents and do a little soul searching, and even took up a small job working as a waitress at Greasy's Diner. There, she got lots of experience with other people, gaining friendships with a large number of her co-workers.
After another boring day of work, Pacifica suddenly fell through a mysterious portal, finding herself in some kind of forest. At first, she thought this might've been another one of those Weirdmageddon side effects or whatever until she stumbled across a small group of humanoid creatures in masks.

Abilities & Equipment Edit
- Hand-to-Hand Combat
- Stealth Skills
- Upgraded Grappling Hook
Pacifica's main weapon is a grappling hook she managed to pick up for herself at the Mystery Shack. When Washu joined the team, she upgraded it to have many features. Alongside the standard grapple rope to hoist herself and at least one other person up a tall surface or to lasso someone (or even punch through opponents if she needs to), she can have several arrowheads fire repeatedly like a crossbow, a small explosive arrow, or a hard wire that releases a volt of electricity into her opponent to paralyze them or fry their circuits.
Pacifica's former job as a waitress actually is reference to an interview of Alex Hirsch himself, who said he imagined her getting a side job at Greasy's Diner after her family lost the manor. Her appearance is also based off of this tweet:
Pacifica and Candace are meant to serve as the Black Widow and Hawkeye of the Knights; the two characters that don't have any special powers (or in this case, don't pilot a mech) but still manage to contribute to the team through their sheer determination and the unique ways they help with the bigger threats. Pacifica takes Hawkeye's position thanks to her ranged weapon armed with several special modifications.
As a little joke on how she doesn't care about her appearance anymore, in some of the battles she takes part in, she ends up the most dirty out of anyone on the team. Heck, sometimes she's the only one with dirt or mud on her.
