004 - Protector Knights of the Forest


These are some of the creatures that protect the forest from bandits, thieves, and all-around bad folks. In this instance, they followed Mao out of the forest because he was grabbing whatever he could as ingredients for Sadie Cat (so they could eat and, well, not die).

Basically they're all good with Mao taking the ingredients (nuts, vegetables, fruit, and fish), but need payment in return (yummy food).
