Noishe is an ancient creature called a protozoan. The first form of that creature is a fish, then a bird, then the dog, something else, and finally a human that hunts down evil. Throughout Symphonia and Symphonia Dawn of the New World. Noishe is in the dog form of the creature. No one knows how long it will take for Noishe to evolve again. The only people who recognized what Noishe was were two elven children in the village of Heimdall. Kratos Aurion traveled with Noishe first during the ancient war then again when Kratos married Anna and had Lloyd Irving. When monsters attacked Noishe was injuered and is therefore scared of monsters. Noishe is very loyal to Lloyd and travels anywhere with Lloyd as long as there are no monsters.
