History[edit | edit source]
Myuri first appears on the final illustration in the last novel of the original series as an infant. Ten years later she lives with her parents at their bathhouse Spice and Wolf in Nyohhira, and has never left town her whole life. When she hears the story of her parents' travels, she begins to hope that she will experience the life of the outside world one day.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Myuri is tomboyish but a very diligent girl who loves mischief. Being raised in a special family that includes both a human and a deity, coupled with the fact that she lives in a bathhouse, Myuri has a problem socializing with humans and fitting in with human society. For example, Tote Col once caught Myuri horsing around at the baths with a group of old male customers egging her on when she was about to pull off a stunt she came up with, involving riding on a shield behind a mule she borrowed without permission. She was neither embarrassed about being half-naked around a bunch of naked men nor remorseful about the trouble she causes to Col, who has to clean up her mess afterwards.
Myuri is carefree and does not seem to pay attention to or trying to maintain her appearance. She does not mind getting scratches and cuts while having fun. However, she is afraid of getting her tail shaved by her mother. Once she leaves on her journey with Col, she becomes more particular about her appearance, and was willing to wash her hair in freezing cold water.
Myuri is a sharp girl. She is aware of the hierarchy within the family and although she may not want to defy her parents, she knows that Col is likely to spoil her and will try to talk her way out of a studying session. She also seems to have romantic interest in Col as she has almost kissed him and even invite him to sleep with her on the same bed.
She is not a morning person and, much like her mother, has trouble waking up early and helping out with the bath house work in the morning despite being a hard worker herself. However, she will immediately join in any foolishness if the customers egged her on.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Like her mother, Myuri has several supernatural abilities.
- Camouflage: Thanks to being cross-breed between Human and Wolf Deity, Myuri is able to hide her wolf tail and ears as she wants and looks like a normal human girl.
- Transformation: Because she is part Wolf Deity, Myuri can change into a wolf and back. She was taught how to transform by Holo before she goes on a journey with Col in order to help him out when he most needed her. Her wolf form is significantly smaller than Holo's but is still bigger than any wolf found in the wild. She is large enough to carry Col with ease. Her fur in wolf form is silver.
- Heightened Sense of Smell: Like Holo, Myuri does possess a more advanced sense of smell than normal human. She can detect the lingering smell of people in a room; however, her senses are not developed enough to be able to correctly identify the individuals in question.
Quotes[edit | edit source]
- "Males are fools."
