Aurinko the Cheetah is a medic that serves the Light Clan of Celeritas.
Aurinko is a slender white cheetah, with silver stripes and spots, blue hair and green eyes. She dresses quite modestly, wearing a knee-length skirt, a shirt with sleeves that reach to the elbows, and plain boots. All three articles of clothing are pale yellow in color.
She first appears during Llachar's flashback, where he recalls the injured stranger that stumbled across Hope Tower. Llachar had brought the stranger to Aurinko so that she could heal him. Yet the stranger, who was really Toxic in disguise, rallied a large number of Trolls to attack Hope Tower later that night, with the invasion resulting in the death of Lady Ilia Lightbringer.
Aurinko was seen after the Trolls were successfully driven away, locked in a depressive slump, mainly because she had helped the person who caused Ilia's death.
Being a medic, Aurinko has a far more defensive and utility-based fighting style than the soldiers and mages do. Apart from being able to heal and buff her allies, she can also debuff her enemies, and even strip them of their powers to some degree.
She isn't terribly sturdy, nor can she hit that hard. However, her Solaramantic abilities are well-developed, and she also is quite agile, especially given the fact that she is a cheetah.
Aurinko is relatively resistant to Light.
Aurinko is weak to Darkness. She is also rather fragile.
Friends and Foes
- Dark Clan of Voidstar -
- Nihlic Clan of Nihlus -
- The Trolls - Unsurprisingly, Aurinko holds a hateful grudge against the Trolls.
Aurinko used to live up to the translation of her name; she was warm and cheery, and loved helping people. After Lady Ilia's death, however, she had become very withdrawn and quiet, as she felt partially responsible for the former leader's death. She still does her job without fail, however.
Her name is the Finnish word for "sun".
