Yonny (パピヨン?, lit.: "Papillon") is the doctor of the Rescue Corps. He is in charge of night expeditions to gather Glow sap in an effort to cure leaflings.

Personality and appearance[edit]

Yonny is relatively tall with an egg-shaped head, dark skin, and pointy ears. His hair is green and cut in a bowl shape, and he has a small, orangeish nose and black, plus-shaped eyes. He wears a black-banded head mirror over his hair and a Rescue Corps spacesuit.

Yonny enjoys making medicines and observing night expeditions, finding them and the leaflings intriguing and often coming up with speculative theories to explain things related to them. As noted by Shepherd, he also really likes to read. While Yonny acts docile for the most part, he seems to have a more sinister side, stating things that most would be sensitive to as if they were lighthearted facts. According to Shepherd, he also laughs maniacally while developing his medicines. It is implied in many pieces of dialogue that he experiments occasionally on his colleagues and frequently on the Glow Pikmin.
