Ashitaka


To see with eyes unclouded by hate.
~ Ashitaka, to Lady Eboshi about his quest

Prince Ashitaka is the main male protagonist of the film Princess Mononoke. He is also a warrior who met San and then became great friends with her eventually. Through out the film, he was also looking for a cure to a curse he got from a boar that was cursed as well. At the end of the film, he was cured as well as San from the curse after the head of the forest spirit was returned to him that some evil men working for Eboshi tried to take.

Appearance

Ashitaka has long hair that is tied into a bun, but he cuts it off after he is told to leave the village. His clothing consists of a blue top and peach-white pants, as well as brown bottom warmers and shoes made out of fabric. He also wears blue arm sleeves and a red hood to cover his face. He wears a cloak made out of hay for a small portion of the movie. He wears his sister's crystal dagger before he gives it to San. After San's attack on Iron Town, Ashitaka has a slash scar on his left cheek where San slashed him with her dagger.

Personality

Ashitaka is very stern and determined to achieve his goals, not allowing his setbacks to stop him from curing his curse and saving his village. He is also extremely curious in nature, wanting to discover who San truly is after witnessing her sucking venom out of one of the wolves. Despite his hard outer shell, Ashitaka is also very kind and only wishes for the best outcomes for both sides, not wishing for either side to shed blood in destructive wars, and wants peace between the forces of man and nature.
