This is Rinoa's dog, Angelo. Everyone say hi to Angelo! Angelo gets her name from Saint Angelo di Roma, who as everyone knows is the patron saint of RPGs. Angelo learns new attacks when Rinoa picks up new issues of "Dog Fancy" magazine. Er, "Pet Tsushin" ("Pet Information") magazine. In the world of Final Fantasy VIII, these magazines don't contain cute pictures of cats chasing their shadows, but rather information on training your animal into a deadly assasin. To each their own. Angelo's vital stats are:
- Age: 2
- Sex: Female
- Birthday: Dec. 13
- Height: 55 cm
- Special attack: Angelo Rush, Angelo Strike, Angelo Cannon, Angelo etc.
We at the GIA are disappointed that Square is keeping a final, vital piece of information -- Angelo's blood type -- close to their chests.
