Me ya—

—Meinya

Meinya is Prushka's pet given to her as a present from her adoptive father, Bondrewd, as a tenth birthday present. Its name is a result of Prushka not being able to pronounce "Meinastilim" when it was given to her.[1] It later joins Reg, Riko, and Nanachi on their adventure to the bottom of the Abyss.[2]

Appearance

Meinya is a rabbit-sized creature called a Meinastilim, also known as a child of change.[3] It has an oval shaped body, stubby legs and feet, and large ears it uses to fly with. Its face is somewhat resemblant of a toad's as its pupils are slitted horizontally across the entire diameter of the eye.[4]

By sniffing Meinya's fur, Riko and Prushka are able to navigate Ido Front without succumbing to the Curse.[5]

Personality

Meinya cares deeply for Prushka, as shown when it cries in despair and begins to lap up what is spilling out of Prushka's cartridge after it has been used.[6]

History

Early Life

After Bondrewd had adopted Prushka he gifted Meinya to her and the previous frantic Prushka slowly started approaching the strange animal, with a dubious curiosity, and started showing signs of affection with it, naming it Meinya. Overjoyed with the first signs of recovery of his new daughter, Bondrewd declared that the day would be her birthday and afterwards Purshka's condition started to steadily improve.[7]


Ido Front

During the main group's stay at Ido Front, Prushka and Riko become friends and Prushka introduces Riko to her pet; Meinya.[8]

During Reg's and Bondrewd's fight, Bondrewd ejects several of his cartridges and begins to recite their names. Meinya interrupts him, running to one cartridge and, after sniffing and licking the contents, wailing over it. Bondrewd confirms that this cartridge contained Prushka.[9]


Ilblu Arc

Due to an accident, Meinya is injured by a very curious Narehate and the group witnesses the village's ritual to balance value. Nanachi confirms that Meinya is fine and it will just take a bit time until its swollen intestines return to normal.[10]

When Reg returned to the village with Faputa's body parts, it was Meinya who signaled Riko of his return.[11]

Meinya is seen with Maaa when Riko regains consciousness after having used her whistle during the battle with Faputa.[12]

Shortly before Maaa's final moments, she hugs Meinya and Riko close with a hint of satisfaction in her expression.[13]


Beyond the village

During their further travel, Faputa questions Nanachi about the curse itself and Nanachi gives Faputa explanations to it. Then, suddenly Meinya reacts to something and looks for it. As the group follows Meinya they come upon the corpse of a Black Whistle Delver. [14]

Reg initally panicks but Nanachi quickly informs him that the Delver is already dead. As the group wonders about his cause of death, and which group he could have belonged to, Nanachi searches him for useful common Artifacts Delvers often carry and they collcet an all-purpose lockpick, Gentle Knock, and an air dumpling, Mermaind Burp from the corpse.[15]


Curse Fleet Arc

When the group arrives at outpost of Hail Hex in the 6th layer, Meinya approaches Srajo, is picked up by her while cooking, and climbs onto her shoulder.[16]

Abilities

High Durability

Meinya has pliant, flexible bones that can undergo a lot of stress. When Meinya was injured, rather than being crushed, its eye was pushed out of its socket, and the intestines out of Meinya's anus, before being popped back in with relative ease.[17]
