Remember that hint from chapter 2? If you guess Iorogi, then you are correct!
Ah, yes. We all gotta love the hot-tempered, fire-breathing stuffed animal.
Iorogi was (at one point) a mascot for CLAMP artist, Tsubaki Nekoi.
But he made his debut in the Kobato series. As a main character, he helps kobato on her mission to fufill her wish. Any time she makes a mistake or irritates him, he calls her Dobato(which means "dirty bird", where-as Kobato means "baby dove") and scorches her with fire. In the anime, Ioryogi has the same voice as Kurogane. Since the two have similar behaviors, it leads Fai to believe that 'Ioryogi is the Kurogane of this world'.
(uhh... if you don't understand that last sentence, it's okay. If you really want to know, just ask and I'll explain.)
And this, folks, is where we have our connection with Tsubasa. Hmmm....
CLAMP in EmbroideryLand will be on hiatus. I'm currently working on embroidery projects for Fullmetal Alchemist and Ouran High Host Club. Stay tuned!!!
