About Princess Mononoke
Princess Mononoke is a fictional character voiced by Yuriko Ishida in the 1997 Studio Ghibli movie by the same name. Once the gods, animals and humans alike lived in harmony, but the humans started taking more than their fair share. Now a young prince has to struggle between the gods of the forest and the humans who use its resources.
Princess Mononoke, also known as San, is fighting for the animals. Being raised by the wolf gods from a young age, San now sees herself as one of them. Princess Mononoke roughly translates to ‘princess of the vengeful spirits’ and she takes that with great pride. San has incredible speed and is skilled in battle. She is known for being fierce and brave and uses a spear or knife in combat. She isn’t afraid to die for her cause and isn’t afraid to kill anyone who gets in her way either.
