    • She has white socks.
    • Her hooves are pink.

2.  Personality

One's first impression of Iga is that she is wise and kind, what one would come to expect from a spirit guide. Polite, soft-spoken, and gentle in her advice and guiding, she has devoted her existence to teaching young AniWayans the ways of the culture she loves so much.

However, Iga also has a big ego. As a rule, spirit guides are to be respected in AniWaya; their role is sacred, and so most spirit guides expect respect from their charges and others. Iga, meanwhile, doesn't just expect and accept it -- she revels in it. Her choice of charges, not coincidentally, have been very devout AniWayans who go above and beyond to respect her. She would likely outright abandon a charge who does not give her the respect she feels she deserves.

Iga teaches and guides her charges to respect and adhere to AniWaya's culture. Her interpretation is not as strict or traditional as other guides, as she believes above all else in the cohesion of the group: every AniWayan helping each other, pulling their weight, contributing to the family. She does not suffer fools or slackers and, as is the case with Cody, generally encourages her charges to participate more in the Tribe. She feels that AniWayans should take pride in their unique culture, that they are in the "right" in their lifestyle, and urges them to stand up to outside scorn or temptation.

Iga is very slow to anger, but outright disrespect, apathy for Tribe culture, or frequent disagreement will lead to her fury.

2.1  Skills & Abilities

  • As a spirit guide, Iga has control over her physical representation in the world; she can fully manifest or only partially, depending on her whim.
  • Iga is well-versed in the language, culture, and expectations of AniWaya -- understanding its greater mores but its day-to-day tasks as well.

2.2  Likes & Dislikes

  • Likes AniWayan culture, attention, devotees, friendship and family and dependence
  • Dislikes disrespect, laziness

3.  History

  • Because Iga is a spirit guide, her history is unknown -- timeless.
  • Iga has guided others from the Great Tribe before, generally choosing devout canines -- but also holding a close bond with those in the animal caretaker profession. Her charges have largely been humble but also celebrated Tribe culture.
  • Cody went on his spiritual journey after the AniWaya spirit guides grew restless, believing that they were dishonored. Wanting to honor his new Tribe's culture, Cody learned what he could about spirit guides and went on his journey. Iga watched him during this time (unbeknownst to him) and comforted his spooked gelding, Singer, waiting with him until Cody arrived. She then presented herself to Cody as his spirit guide.
