Starlow, Mario & Luigi series

Starlow (known as Chippy to Bowser) is a recurring character that appears in the Mario & Luigi series, first appearing in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. She is a Star Sprite who acts like a helper and guide to Mario and Luigi, giving hints to them and holding any items they obtain in the Star Menu (or just known as the "menu"). Her name is a portmanteau of the words "star" and "yellow".


Starlow looks like a yellow ball with a face and feet with a star floating above her. Her appearance is presumably the same as a normal Star Sprite, albeit having no mustache, most likely that she is a female Star Sprite.
