Noishe is first introduced in the story as Lloyd's pet, a unique, green and white animal that greatly resembles and behaves like a very large dog. He is gentle and friendly, but also terrified of monsters. This fear stems from the incident when Lloyd was three-years-old, where Kvar attacked Kratos and Anna during their attempt to escape Cruxis and the Desians. When Anna turned into a monster after her Exsphere was removed, she tried to attack Lloyd, but Noishe was holding Lloyd while Kratos Aurion attempted to defend them both. Anna momentarily regained control of herself, but Kratos was unable to kill her until she threw both Lloyd and Noishe off a cliff. Both of them were taken in and cared for by the Dirk, a dwarf.
