Not be confused with Muoro
|“|| The trees cry out as they die, but you cannot hear them. I lie here. I listen to the pain of the forest and feel the ache of the bullet in my chest, and I dream of the day I will finally crunch that gun-woman's head in my jaws.
Moro is the god of the wolves, as seen in Princess Mononoke. She is three hundred years old and possesses divine power and intelligence, as well as being capable of understanding and speaking human language. Moro is very wise and is keen to the tricks of mankind. She is a stoic and strong character who knows the evil intentions of humans. She is the leader of the wolf tribe and a loving mother. Moro comes across as threatening towards Ashitaka, but understands his deep affection for San.
When San was just a baby, Moro caught her parents violating her forest and attacked them. San's parents then threw their baby at Moro's feet as a sacrifice and ran away. Instead of eating her, Moro raised San as her own daughter. Because of this, San behaves like a wolf, and despises humans as her mother does.
After the forest spirit takes the life out of Moro and Okkoto, Lady Eboshi shoots the Forest Spirit's head off. After she throws the head to Jigo, Moro's head comes back to life and bites Lady Eboshi's right arm off. Moro lands into the forest spirit's body and is then killed.
Moro is a large, white wolf with two tails and brown eyes.
|“||Ashitaka: You must set her free! She's not a wolf she's human!||”|
|“|| Moro: Silence boy! How dare you speak to a god like that?! I caught her human parents defiling my forest. They threw their baby at my feet as they ran away. Instead of eating her, I raised her as my own. Now my poor, ugly, beautiful daughter is neither human nor wolf.
|“|| There is nothing you can do boy. Soon the Demon Mark will spread and kill you. Now leave this place at sunrise. Return and I shall kill you.
|“|| Give me back my daughter, demon!
