Murr is a cat owned by the Vampire, Noé, in Jun Mochizuki's The Case Study of Vanitas. Murr never shows any other emotion apart from irritability but seems to care a great deal for Noé - often times lurking in the shadows and watching Noé. Murr accompanied Noé aboard La Baleine while on his journey to Paris in pursuit of The Book of Vanitas, leading to a confrontation between Noé and a human named Vanitas as Noé attempted to keep a curse-bearing Vampire named Amelia Ruth safe. Ultimately, it was revealed that Vanitas had The Book of Vanitas in his possession when he used it to cure Amelia. After the conflict, Noé and Vanitas' plummeted from La Baleine and down into Paris, leaving Murr to be apprehended by the guards and delivered to Count Parks Orlok. Murr was later returned to Noé and remains by his side as Noé and Vanitas seek out the Vampire terrorizing Paris in order to save Amelia.

Nox and Manet Edit

Having been left behind when Noé and Vanitas left to track down Thomas Berneux, Murr went back to Galerie Vivienne where he was discovered by Nox and Manet. Nox and Manet initially were going to remove Murr from Count Orlok's presence out of fear that the count would find him noisy. They held him roughly, causing Murr to attack them out of aggravation. After being scolded by Count Orlok for their poor treatment of Murr, they joined the count in fondly doting on the cat, playing with Murr and feeding him, and eventually becoming great friends.[1]

Parks Orlok Edit

Count Orlok scolded Nox and Manet for not treating Murr properly and proceeded to dote on Murr, using cat toys to play with him. The two are now great friends.[2]

Trivia Edit

  • Murr has complete heterochromia - one eye being red, while the other is blue - but whether or not his red eye is meant to indicate whether Murr is half Vampire has yet to be seen.
