Background/History: Ura is a Guardian Cat, a race of feline-appearing creatures native to Roshtaria. Ura used to belong to Princess Fatora, and was given to Matoko to be his guardian while he impersonated Fatora. The two got along quite well, and Ura quickly came to like Matoko and become quite loyal to him, so much so that after Fatora was rescued, Ura refused to leave Matoko.
Personality/Motivation: Ura is quiet and unobtrusive and generally stays out of the way unless Matoko is in danger. At that point, Ura will wrap herself around Matoko, and do her best to make sure Matoko doesn't come to harm.
Quote: "It's a job."
Powers/Tactics: As a Guardian Cat, Ura is virtually invulnerable, with a hide as tough as steel (she withstood a direct hit from Ifurita's Key Staff). She can flatten herself into a rug-like form, and wrap abound a person's torso, protecting them from harm. When serving as protection in this way, Ura can only really cover locations 9-12 (or so), and cannot defend someone from attacks aimed at the head or limbs.
Ura can still use her limbs while wrapped around Matoko (or another person) and will strike out at a foe, either pushing them away or scratching with their sharp claws. She can also climb a sheer wall while wrapped around Matoko, or help absorb the impact from a long fall.
Appearance: Ura looks like a large cat with a light brownish-gray body, a white underbelly and paws, and a thick orange "Mohawk" that runs the length of her spine and tail.
Designer's Notes: This write-up is derived from the El-Hazard resource book from Guardians of Order. The characteristics and powers were adapted from the resource book and then further modified by the author.
Ura makes for an excellent (if powerful) fantasy sidekick. Her ability to use her Clinging while wrapped around someone might require the purchase of Extra Limbs (so that she can "carry" someone while using her Clinging).
