Final Fantasy X - Auron Free Figure Papercraft DownloadThis figure papercraft is Auron, a playable character in role-playing video game Final Fantasy X, the paper model created by ninjatoes. Auron is a former warrior monk of Yevon, guardian of High Summoner Braska, and is Tidus's caretaker. He is, in many ways, the mentor of the Final Fantasy X main party as party members will often come to him for advice or ask for his permission.

Auron's complex and mysterious past, revealed in pieces during the game, directly ties into the stories of Braska and Tidus's father Jecht, and helps set the stage for the game's events. In the English localization of Final Fantasy X, Auron is pronounced.

Auron wears a deep red haori with blue lining, kept closed with a thick black and blue strap with two brown belts wrapped around it. Auron tucks his left arm into the front of his haori, making it look as though his arm is in a sling. He removes his left arm from his haori when fighting, but his right arm remains in its sleeve. This aspect is a tradition among rōnin, and is likely meant to be an homage to this traditional figure: a rōnin is a samurai who refused to commit seppuku after his lord's death; this may be a reference to Braska's death.

Auron wears a brown shoulder pad on his left shoulder intricately decorated with tan, green and blue patterns with a beaded ornament dangling from it. He wears black pants and shoes that have brown straps and triangular metal plating. Auron wears a black shirt with a gray collar with intersecting brown straps high enough to cover his mouth. His long hair is dark black with gray streaks and is held back by a gold ribbon, and he has some stubble on his chin.

There is a large scar over the right half of Auron's face and over his eye, which is always shut as a result. His left eye is amber. On his right hip Auron carries a jug with the word "Nog" written on it, a term used to describe a number of beverages, including rum. The drink is featured in two of his Overdrives: when executing Banishing Blade, Auron takes a drink and spits it on the blade, and when using Tornado, Auron hurls the jug into the cyclone to ignite it. The former is likely a homage to Japanese samurai who would spit sake on their swords to "feed the spirit of the blade".

Auron is the strong silent type. He speaks only if necessary, but when he does he often says something important. He is a strict, no-nonsense warrior with a dry wit. As a guardian Auron devotes his life to protecting those in need, putting the matters of others before his own. Auron is idolized across Spira by aspiring guardians.

Beneath the silence Auron is outraged and disgusted over the events of ten years ago during his pilgrimage with Braska, and still mourns the loss of his friends. Auron regards himself as a failure for letting the cycle continue. Auron has little to no respect for Yevon likely due to his knowledge of their inner workings and corruption. Kazushige Nojima has compared Auron to Vincent Valentine of Final Fantasy VII, stating that though the two are meant to be silent characters they tend to speak often and have something important to say.
