Favorite Animal Sidekick, Pet or Summoning (Cerberus)
Cerberus (Kero) is one of the two Guardians of the Clow Cards in the anime series, Cardcaptor Sakura. Appointed to be the next “master of the cards.” When Sakura Kinomoto accidently releases the cards, he chooses her to be the next candidate. In his correct form, Kero is a huge lionlike beast with large white wings. He wears a helmet and breastplate with a massive ruby in the center. When he’s in his borrowed form, he looks like an adorable plush toy with big ears and small wings. Kero is bossy and greedy. He has a fondness for sweets, particularly cake, cookies, and chocolates. Kero is self absorbed. He loves to be filmed by Sakura’s friend, Tomoyo Daidouji, and loves the cute outfits she makes him. He cares about his image and often wants to watch the recordings.
Kero has a love of video-games. He avoids the sad facts of life, which is why he focuses of enjoying life. Despite his love of sweets, he doesn’t need to eat because he gets all his energy from the sun. Despite his poor qualities, Kero is a good friend and mentor to Sakura. Kero tries to keep her happy and comforts her when necessary. He’s willing to protect her from danger and she returns the favor. Kero’s relationship with Syaoran Li is the most interesting. They hate each other. They play their relationship for laughs. Constantly bickering, Li calls him a “plush toy” or “stuffed animal,” and Kero responding with “brat.” Kero often bites Li while in his “borrowed form.” Their relationship always brought me joy.
