If you're a fan of Nuzlockes and haven't watched Marriland on YT: you should.
Cardinal and Wren. These two have lasted a long time and been through some difficult things--Cardinal especially. I like to think of Wren as the motherly protector of the group, who shares a close brother-sister bond with Cardinal even though they're not paired together. She's been there to comfort him whenever he needs it, and strikes down their foes with the severe fury of a mother scorned.
Until her own partner, Quail, died. Then the roles were reversed, and the strong, motherly Wren was the one to find comfort in someone who knew how much this kind of loss hurt.
