Character Role Analysis

Kapugen

To put it simply, Kapugen has taught Miyax pretty much everything she knows about how to survive. In the first part, in particular, there's a clear link between Miyax's survival and Kapugen's advice. He's like the voice in her head, telling her what to do and how to do it. And thank goodness he's there. Without Kapugen's know-how, our Miyax couldn't have lasted very long.


Amaroq

Amaroq is the wolf version of Kapugen. Miyax even calls him her adopted father. As the leader of the pack, he accepts Miyax into his wolf family, and helps her survive in the wild. When you break it down, they don't have a lot of direct contact. Nevertheless, Miyax looks to him for guidance and help.
