Myau in Generation 1


Myau is a cat-like creature capable of speech. He is a small, yellow quadrupedal cat with green eyes and two long, thin, pointed ears that curve at the tips. The edges of his ears are a dark brown color. In his Generation 1 artwork, Myau is depicted with teal eyes instead of green with a head full of fluffy bangs.

The fur on his chest puffs outward and around his neck is a vial of alsulin in a blue bottle. Although he has only a single tail, it is split into five curls that gradually become a dark brown color toward the tips similar to his ears.

When Myau consumes a laerma nut, he grows to the size of a horse, sprouts horn tipped wings, and his pelt becomes a lighter shade of gold.


Since the original classics did not have much dialogue from the main characters themselves, Myau's personality has been left open to interpretation. From the few lines he speaks, he is a a loyal companion to his friend Odin. Even when his warrior friend gets in over his head in fights, such as the battle against Medusa, Myau would accompany him attempting to support as best as he can. When the battle took a turn for the worst, he was left alone in the cave. Eventually, he was abducted by a man from Scion, who then sold him to a merchant from Paseo.

In the Generation 1 remake however Myau is shown to be much more brash and sassy. While recounting his experiences to Alis, he spewed expletives about the humans that abducted him when he sought help to revive Odin from petrification, and even threatened to claw at his abductor's face that sold him to the black market if he ever met that person in the future.


The loyal companion to Odin, Alis first hears of Myau when searching Scion for Odin, where she is told Odin went to kill Medusa in the cave with a talking cat. Further investigation tell her that the Myau was captured and sold. Upon finding Myau, Alis trades a Laconian Pot for him.
