((Musou's animal companion! Yay! Since Japanese wolves have been extinct for a long time, and are just a little bigger than foxes, picture a big old timber wolf. For the DnD players out there, maybe even a golden winter wolf.))
Arteru is a large golden wolf, 3'6" feet tall at the shoulder, 7' long from nose to tail and weighs around 145 lbs. He has silvery armored plates protecting his shoulders and rear haunches as well as the fronts of his front and rear legs, wicked metal claws protruding from each. When docile, he has deep blue eyes and a pleasant, if intimidating demeanor. When fighting or angry his eyes flare up into golden orbs, trailing electricity behind them when he moves quickly. Despite his relative bulk for a wolf and armored plating, Arteru runs and bounds with the agility one might expect of his species.
Quiet and lazy most of the time, Arteru is a fiercely loyal guardian to Musou when called upon. The wolf would much rather nap or chew on things then train and in combat he fights with an instinctual cunning, hitting and running, flanking opponents with Musou, and intimidating weaker foes away. He seems to understand what is spoken to him but is unable to speak himself, though he is able to communicate freely with most of the lupine-based breeds of viruses. Arteru occasionally looses himself to his instincts, prowling and hunting targets that his master has no intention of fighting and occasionally testing Musou's status as top dog.
Weapons: The wolf can strike with razor-sharp claws and fangs, and as an elec type, has the ability to channel voltage into his strikes or even send bolts flying with charged howls.
