Description:

Black as night, eyes like two emerald moons, and stamina that wont yield. The black mare, loyal friend of Daigotsu Agra since her birth…

Bio:

Agra and Arubarna were like rice to a samurai. Priceless to eachother they bonded fiercely as they grew.

During their time together they visited her kind. But to Agra she is the queen of her kind. She got left behind in the colonies when Agra had to leave on his missions as a samurai. Agra made a promise to her; “When I have dire need of you, and my skill has improved to the point I can also protect you, my war-mare, I will send for you.
Do not lose heart old friend, you will not be forgotten.”

Arabasta Agra’s mother will take care of Arubarna, that “Queen of Mares” as her son called her so lovingly, In her son’s absence. She will ride across the rare fields of swamp Valkas until her big brother figure Agra calls upon her to ride into battle gloriously.

Agra dedicated a song to his black mare, based on the friendship they have. Dreaming of adventures with her, the song goes something like this:

Arubarna

Arubarna black mare

Crack of thunder, sound of rain across the endless fields
as we speed towards the night upon a steed that never yields
Black as the night, swift as the wind and eyes of emerald green
In restless flight our journey takes us further east

The seventh day we reach the west trail
through the Nethermoor
guides us through the mist
Across the river past the grey stones of
Ne’anthor, stars shine our way

Journey into far away
and to forgotten lands
and here by my side
she will ride there with me
To the home of her kind

Black mare arubarna
I see creatures from old stories I thought make believe
Crawling in the shades with thousand eyes they gaze upon me
She lifts her head up like she senses unseen enemies
In the black of night a shadow watches over me

On the second moon we set out east for Val’inthor
Where her kindred dwell
We pass the mighty ruined citadels of ancient lore
The moon lights our way

Journey into far away
and to forgotten lands
and here by my side
she will ride there with me
To the home of her kind

Ghostly specters, faded wanderers that gone before
reveals the passage through the river to the northern shore
Something dwells within the dark I sense we’re not alone
though I know it cannot pass beyond the warding stones

before the break of fall we stand before the sacred realm
where her kindred dwell
we make camp in crumbling temples by the raging ford
light shine our way

Journey into far away
and to forgotten lands
and here by my side
she will ride there with me
She’s the queen of her kind
