Orube is a fictional character who first appeared in W.I.T.C.H. #28 in July 2003. She becomes a member of W.I.T.C.H., the group of teenage girls who make up the Guardians, the people who guard Kandrakar, the center of the universe, from evil. She does not appear in the animated series.
Chronology: Comic Book
Orube was a replacement for Taranee Cook, who quit the team after expressing her dislike for the Oracle for not telling them everything about their lives and their Guardianship, and constantly stringing them along like puppets. When Taranee rejoined the team some time later, Orube was welcomed to stay in Heatherfield to learn about life on Earth. She controls no elemental power, but she is an excellent hand-to-hand fighter and had the ability to emit powerful energy blasts. Orube was once one of Luba's pupils, and according to the Oracle, the finest of them all.
Originally from the planet Basilíade, she lives on Earth under the alias of Rebecca Rudolph in Mrs. Rudolph's old home, posing as her niece. When she first arrived on Earth, she had a bad case of culture shock and found it hard to fit in with humans. In the time Cedric temporarily teams up with the W.I.T.C.H. girls, Orube begins to form a relationship with him; as they were both extraterrestrials on Earth and could relate to each other.
Orube is often said to be cat-like in nature because of her keen senses (most often teased about it by Irma), like her teacher, Luba. Her senses make it easier for her to track down people as seen in Issue #35 where she tracks down the W.I.T.C.H. girls' Astral Drops.
In W.I.T.C.H. #62, she goes back to Basilíade, after the death of Cedric. They realize that they share feelings for each other. To protect Orube from Ludmoore, Cedric shields her from an energy blast and sacrifices himself so they can use his ink to escape the book. Orube is heartbroken by his death.
Orube has appeared as the digital face of Friday, the artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark as a personal assistant to his work and life. The character designer for Orube was outraged to see this blatant rip off of his character.
- The Character Miranda from the animated series is believed by many fans to be based on Orube. This is due to Miranda's Asian appearance and status as Cedric's lover. They also consider Miranda to be Orube's evil counterpart.
- While Orube was helping Cedric get closer to redemption, Miranda was helping Cedric embrace himself as a villain.
