White with Black Stripes
White Blaze is a giant albino tiger, which fought alongside the
Ancient 1000 yrs. ago, and again alongside Ryo in modern times.
He is considered Ryo's pet tiger. Ryo and White Blaze seem to able
to understand each other clearly. Among his other qualities White
Blaze possesses the strength to carry two Ronins in full armor on
his back, fight with blades in his mouth, and keep up with Mia's
jeep, not to mention saving Mia and Yuli, and still having enough
energy left to play with Yuli.
White Blaze is more or less a spirit tiger or guardian spirit. White
beasts are considered sacred in several religions. White tigers
do possess some sort of holiness in ancient China and Japan, among
religions that have a more naturalistic basis. He merges with the
spirit of Black Blaze in later parts of the show, and acquires the
armor of Black Blaze in the process. From then on he carries the
Souls Swords of Fervor for Ryo.
