Role in the Plot
Byakko's Character Quest
The story opens with Serval monologuing about four Friends that protect Japari Park called the Four Gods. She says that they have a power surpassing human ability, and that according to Silver Fox, they are located in places of great power in the east, west, south, and north. As the Ceruleans are growing stronger and evolving, the Friends need to borrow the power of the Four Gods, and the group launches an investigation.
The story then moves to the Savanna, where Serval and Lulu are searching for one of the Four Gods on an extremely windy day. White Tiger tells them that if they are unable to continue, it's okay to let her handle the search on her own, as she wishes to know more about Byakko, the western guardian of Japari Park. Toki then realizes that the group is not making any progress at all. Serval says that this is because of the strong wind, which is making it difficult to stand, much less walk. Caracal complains about why Byakko has to live somewhere like this, which causes White Tiger to respond that she isn't quite sure either.
About to give up, Toki then sees someone collapse. As they approach, it turns out to be Byakko, who has just woken up because of the commotion. White Tiger, unaware of Byakko's identity, tells her that she is stupid for sleeping in a place like this. Hearing this, Byakko reveals her identity as the White Tiger of the West, one of the Four Gods who protect Japari Park. Immediately, White Tiger asks if they are the same, as they are both White Tigers. However, Byakko blasts White Tiger away, surprising everyone and causing White Rhinoceros to question Byakko's actions. Byakko responds that although they have the same name, they are different.
White Tiger is impressed with Byakko's power, but Serval is unable to move past her attack on White Tiger and tells her that it is rude to do such a thing on their first meeting. Byakko then begins reflecting on her actions, and while she is doing so, Serval follows up by asking if Byakko would be willing to lend her power to the group in the fight against the Ceruleans. Byakko says she is willing to do that, but only if they are able to defeat her, turning into her beast form.
White Tiger is still in disbelief at how powerful Byakko was, but Serval reminds her that she will not be fighting alone. They then engage Byakko in battle, and defeat her. Byakko congratulates them on their victory, and not only does she congratulate their victory, but she also acknowledges their bravery in facing such harsh conditions to meet her. The group is happy that Byakko will now lend the group her power, but Byakko refuses to help, telling them that defeating her just once or twice will not convince her to lend her power. Mirai notes that Byakko seems to enjoy fighting, and Silver Fox notes that White Tiger feels the same way. White Tiger does not mind fighting Byakko repeatedly, and White Rhinoceros agrees, though Serval feels tired of fighting. The story ends with White Tiger beginning another battle with Byakko.
