Pride/Pack History: After her birth pride disbanded, founding Monarch Na'ila (a female used to being pampered and cared for) suddenly had to face the harshness of the rogue lands. Struggling to find her own inner strength, she realised that the rogue lands was not safe for her. Gathering people of a similar mind, she created the Likno Tis Zois. Born of a female's desire for equality between genders and sexualities, with every member of the pride pulling their own weight. It was not about servitude, but protection and safety. She incorporated her birth pride's tradition of keeping harems, with new twists that placed people on more equal grounds and created an inclusive pride for those with more than one love.

Pride/Pack History: The Jedi pride began with a simple desire: Help keep the world in balance.
It started with a Master and two Padawans. The Master cared for his Padawans more than anything, but he knew that it was a dangerous thing to love and that love had often times drove creatures to jealousy and hate. He taught his Padawans this among other things.
Once his Padawans were ready he announced that they had become Knights and could find Padawans of their own to take care of.
One young Knight ventured far, looking for a Padawan of his own. Instead he found a lovely lioness who he madly fell in love with. He knew that if he were to bring her back to the pride his old Master would be upset and kick him out. The young Knight decided the best thing to do was have a secret romance with her. He made her his Padawan and hoped that no one would realize their relationship.
The other young Knight was careful and picked a Padawan that she believed had great potential. Her Padawan could see the future and became the first seer in the pride.
As time went on, the pride grew, and kept growing. The Knight who was having the secret romance, had gotten the lioness pregnant. It became obvious to the other members that he was the father.
The Jedi Master did not kick them out, instead he praised them on their love. He gave them a warning to be careful though and not allow their emotions to control them. The Knight believed that the Master forgave him because of how close they were, this made him arrogant.
In time the Jedi Master left them, becoming 'One with the Force'. Before passing he announced that his old Padawan learner, the female, was to become the next Master. His other old Padawan could not believe it. It enraged him to think that he wasn't the old Master's favorite.
He decided to take his mate and leave the pride, never to return again. With his mate he created another group called the Sith. They would become the enemy of the Jedi.

[b]Brief Description of your Pride/Pack: The mountain seers are a secluded, but old pride that resides nestled in the valley between two snow peaked mountains. The Mountain Seers are a highly religious and female-dominant (but not exclusive) pride who worship the gods daily and were blessed with the gift of sight because of it.
In recent history their pride was hit by a large avalanche of snow and ice from unseasonably warm winters. As a result much of the pride disbanded, pushed out by the dangerous conditions. The weather in the region has stabilized, refreezing much of the snow and ice melt over the pride and some members have found themselves returning to it.
Familiar Rules: Does you Pride/Pack allow familiars? Familiars are allowed but would be limited the Umbelethisi rank.

The Intaba'umbikezeli Pride was started long ago by two rogue lioness sisters by the names of Mwitu'nafsi and Bahari'nafsi. As cubs they lived at the base of one of the two mountains outside of what is now the Intaba'umbikezeli Valley where the Mountain Seers call home. Having been left at their den as their mother had foraged for food and prey in the area, Mwitu'nafsi and Bahari'nafsi, wandered out into the world that was unknown to them as their young lives had mostly been spent in the cave their mother used as their den.
Mwitu'nafsi, the larger of the two sisters, had spotted a small hare and chased after it, wanting to practice her stalking and hunting techniques and impress their mother with her prowess. Bahari'nafsi, the smaller of the two sisters, followed close behind, not wanting to be left alone by her bigger sister to fall prey to another creature during her sister’s and mother’s absence.
One sister followed the other as they traveled deeper and deeper into the valley between the two great mountains they called home. By this time, Mwitu'nafsi had lost the hare, and found herself and her sister, Bahari'nafsi, lost within the great valley full of caves and trees and streams. The two lioness cubs were scared and alone, only having each other for comfort as they cried out their tiny chirps for their mother, only to hear silence in return.
Bahari'nafsi turned to her bigger sister and said, “Mwitu'nafsi what have we done? We’ve gone too far from the den and we cannot find our way back. We are doomed to starve!”
Mwitu'nafsi did not believe her sister’s words, and felt that even though they were young and had never been so far from their den before, that the two could make it back if they tried. Mwitu'nafsi turned to Bahari'nafsi and said to her, “Small sister, you should not fear for our lives. We are lionesses! We are strong and we can find our way back home. You must believe!”
The two cubs wandered and wandered for hours, only resting once night came. They took shelter under a bush and slept throughout the night, rising again in the morning and walking for hours, upon hours, upon hours. The two sisters walked during the day hours and slept during the night hours for four days before their aching bellies and tired frames were too much for them and they both collapsed upon the ground.
The smaller sister struggled to open her eyes, only able to see a sliver of where they were. She struggled to turn to her bigger sister and said, “Mwitu'nafsi, do you see that? Do you smell it? It is meat. There is meat!”
The bigger sister opened her weary eyes and in front of her, as her smaller sister had said, there was meat. A large male zebra, freshly killed lay before the two cubs, the aroma of the meat mouthwatering to the two. The young cubs struggled to drag their weak bodies to the feast before them and took large bites from the savory beast. As the two lioness cubs chewed and swallowed their salvation, a feeling of emptiness came over them. They both looked down, horrified to see that the color of their coats had melted off of them and onto the ground like a puddle.
The cubs panicked, crying out as they splashed their paws in the color desperately trying to get it back on them as a voice cut through their frightened cries, “Silence I say! Quiet your tongues and focus on my voice.”
The two cubs instantly became quiet and huddled together, shaking in their fear. The voice once more spoke to them, its presence demanding but gentle, “I am God of this valley, and here for you I am. The feast you have partaken in is a gift from myself to you. It has stripped you of your color, and taken all that had plagued you and in its place I give onto you a gift; a gift of prophecy, a gift of sight, in which you shall use to restore the presence of the gods onto the creatures of this valley. Eat your fill of this feast, and know what you must do.”
The young cubs, in their desperate state, did as the voice commanded of them; eating their fill of the feast before them. Quickly their strength had return and with it something more. As the god had said, they saw visions, terrible things, and joyous things, things that did not seem real, but were so vivid it seemed them so. As the visions receded the two cubs found them selves in a cave, surrounded by other cubs, and a few lionesses who had been watching over them.
Days and months passed and the cubs grew to learn the pride they had been taken into was that of the valley in between the mountains in which they called home. The cubs had quickly assimilated to their new home, having given up on finding their way back to their mother and embracing the ways of the mountain valley lions. Their lives were happy ones, and the cubs, while still having their god-gifted visions, rarely were plagued by them. They told all who had an ear to hear, and were never met with negative reactions, mostly just comical amusement, and comments of being imaginative.
One day, when Mwitu'nafsi and Bahari'nafsi were juveniles, their surrogate mother took them along with her to visit the pride's shrine. She taught them the rituals in which all the lions, and non-lions practiced daily to appease the gods. As the cubs took in the sights, the leader of the mountain valley came in to offer his prayers and appeasement to the gods.
Mwitu'nafsi and Bahari'nafsi watched on as the leader offered his prayer. Bahari'nafsi felt the hair on her back go on end, and a rush come over her body. She was being sent a vision by God. Mwitu' nafsi looked to her sister and exclaimed, "Small sister! What do you see? What has God shown you?!"
Mwitu'nafsi's exclamation caught the attention of the mountain valley leader, and all the pride nearby. All intently watched the twins as Bahari'nafsi shook and let out a might roar for such a young lioness, "DO NOT TRUST THE SCHEMERS. THEIR INTENT IS NO GOOD, OUR PRIDE IS AT STAKE."
Bahari'nafsi's words shook through the pride, and all eyes locked upon their leader. Slowly the gazes started sweeping around upon each other. What was this child saying? She was implying terrible things on the leader. Whispers began, and the twin's surrogate mother quietly, almost as if she was crawling in shame, approached the two, ushering them from the shrine. She was embarrassed, and the twins did not understand why.
The twin's surrogate mother hid them for several days, not wishing for the world to see her daughters. Abruptly one morning she came to Mwitu and Bahari, her head was hung and she seemed heavily tense. The twins were confused by their surrogate mother's demeanor, was something wrong?
"Come with me, my children...He wishes to speak to you."
The twins exchanged glances and followed their surrogate mother. They were brought before the kind who later revealed to them that because of their visions sent by the Gods that his life had been saved. He had put his best guards on watch that evening and during the dead of night they caught two lions and a lioness who had intended to take his life and his throne.
He was grateful to the twins and praised the gods for their abilities. To show his appreciation, the king adopted the twins and made them his heirs. When the King finally passed the twins ascended to his throne together, taking on the role of the pride's spiritual leaders and sharing one mate between them.

[b]Brief Description of your Pride/Pack: The descendents of a mighty golden age, fallen far but having learned much; the Rahala are a nomadic pride, constantly traveling together through the ruins of their desert. They are peaceful but reclusive, devoted wholly to their way of life and not falling into the temptation of war again. Their lives are cyclical, and focused on family and journeys both physical and spiritual as they annually circle the mountain at the heart of their home.
Familiar Rules: The pride allows avians and snakes. From the pride info: Birds especially are very useful for moving messages from the main of the pride to the adolescent outpost, or in case of an emergency to get messages to someone in the ruins or keep watch. Snakes are more cautiously allowed - historically they are companions of the pride, but they were also used in the war times to poison and attack other pride mates. Owners of said serpents are expected to take full responsibility for any accidents. Other familiars are usually seen as either too valuable as food or too likely to compete for food, and are not typically allowed to join the pride.

Any Extra Information: Families will take last names, like the Ela, but it's a mutual choice between a mated pair on who's name they take, and it won't need an extra line or anything, so I'm not sure if it's worth mentioning here?
Pride/Pack History: There's a much longer version I haven't put down yet, but essentially long long ago, the pride was settled in part of the same area they now walk through each year. They settled in the ruins left behind by some strange creatures they had never met, and for a time all was peaceful, as the land offered up plenty of food and shelter. Eventually though, as families began accumulating more and more, they began to compete. Hoarding was an issue for many, and greed drove them to covet what their fellow lions called their own. Conflict began subtly, snakes sent in the night to steal or even poison their enemies. Before long full scale war broke out, each family fighting any other that came within reach. The pride was utterly decimated, and coupled with the largest sandstorm any of them had ever heard of, it was a miracle that even a few lions survived. No more than one or two from any family, and all their wealth buried in the sands, they were forced to band together to eke out a meager living. Legend tells them that the goddess atop their mountain came to them then, and swore that if they could find a way to live together, a way that would never again cause them to give in to such avarice, she would promise to watch over them, provide for them in a spiritual manner. They had little choice, and soon began wandering, sticking together, but never straying from the sight of the mountain. We're now many, many generations after that event, and a lot of the fine details have been lost to time, but the general history is still widely and well known.

The pride has under-gone many changes, many shifts in power and many hardships - both expected and unexpected. The gift of sight doesn't save you from everything, after all.
Currently: Numbers are dwindling, very few original members remain. Most have left on their own journeys. The current leader is growing nervous, desperately seeking new seers to teach and guide.

Pride/Pack History: Long ago, there was a lion.
This lion loved to battle, creating complex and visually appealing attacks to stun and defeat his various opponents. Naturally, his exciting and different attacks drew the attention of several other lions, along with whatever other animal he fought along the way. They longed to discover his secrets and master his moves, so they might also become great battlers. Most were young, inexperienced but eager creatures and the lion could not find it in his heart to them their pleading eyes away. So he agreed to teach them, taking them from the homes they had known, after they bid goodbyes to their families of course, to a special land he had found just for his training.
It was open and vast, the perfect ground for fights, while also in a fairly secluded area without too many passing herds or wandering rogues. Beyond the expanse of flat, barren land was a large set of cliffs and hillsides, littered with holes that were just perfect for dens. Small watering holes provided a source of water for the trainers, while the distance they needed to cover to find food helped them stay in great condition.
In this place, a haven of sorts, they fought each other in practice-style matches, never aiming to kill any of their “class” mates. Under the watchful eye of their master, their champion, they grew to learn the same strange and exciting moves as he. After a while, training also became experimenting, some of the trainers constructing moves their own, the kinks of which were worked through the very same practice battles. These lions, equipped with their exotic skills, ventured occasionally into the depths of the rogue lands, fighting others and truly testing their skills. For the most part, however, they liked to stay within the safety of the pride, never seeking to kill but trained to do so if needed. It became more than just a practice to hone their skills- it became their way of life.
Through their exits and returns to the training grounds, they brought with them new challengers, even families. Before the champion knew it, his experiment in teaching had flourished into a pride. A pride of lions devoted to battle and strengthening themselves, while also keeping kind and never letting the will to fight turn them into blood-thirsty monsters. Within the pride, they live as a team, working together to overcome any obstacle. This blend of peace and ferocity served them well over the years, letting them expand their numbers and grow their territory.
The growth led to the discovery of another important aspect of the pride- exploration. Testing their skills in caves, forests and other terrains unlike the pridelands they were so used. It became another way to hone their skills, and make them the very best they could be. They came to enjoy going on missions for themselves or for the pride, bringing back food and rewards, sometimes even stories of battle.
Generations later, the moves have changed from what was learned in the beginning, but the basics remain the same- to battle is their real test, to train is their cause.
After a stint of famine with a sprinkle of pestilence mixed in, many lives were lost and pride became unstable in its numbers. Some left, hoping to return when the pride found its balance again, while others remained to battle it out, considering the harsh conditions nothing more than another means of training. Suffering through it, the pride has now decreased in size, but its strong heart lives on.
The newest generation of champion, a large lion named Zuka, has stayed with the pride throughout his life, becoming the leader when the former champion died from disease and named him his successor. With the threat of illness now passed, he looks to build the numbers of his pride once, hopeful that the way of training and battle will return to the hearts of his pride members. The Kipindo'hayawani, or Kipwani for short, strives to be the very best, like no pride ever was.

Brief Description of your Pride/Pack: Watembezi is an old pack, originating in a large expanse of plains. When the pack was young, they worshipped the flowers that scattered their wide-open lands. However, disaster struck and the pack was scattered, many dying from the plague. So the pack moved on, coming to a new home where they would attempt to re-establish themselves. Still, they were not safe, as disaster struck once again. Still, the pack flourished, settling in a valley with a new set of gods to worship. The events of their past made their pack bonds strong, and they carry the strength to their daily lives as every aspect revolves around their gods. As their pack grows in numbers, so does their hope for the future.
Familiar Rules: All Familiars acceptable, but must be bonded to a regular member.

Long ago, before the earthquake – before the plague, there was a small pack - a beautiful flower-pack with flourishing members. They gave worship to their goddess of flowers and rain to keep their pack fed and growing.
However, their flourishing did not last long. The plague struck their home, striking hard against the entire pack. Very few escaped, fleeing the lands ridden with the horrible disease. The remaining group consisted of only three – a now orphaned pup by the name of Dagaa, a priestess – Ua, and a hunter named Maji.
Ua, being the highest ranking of the three, lead the pack continuously, gathering a small amount of stragglers as they moved on. Ua, being a priestess, looked to the God and Goddess of their old pack, trying to soothe the angry gods for the plague to end.
The pack grew and grew again, but tragedy would befall them once again, years later. The earth shook a mighty blow, killing a majority of the pack. Dagaa and Ua remained, trying to collect themselves as the rest of the small pack fled in horror at the events.
Ua, once again turned to the gods, adding earth to the previous Flower and Water Goddess and God. The Priestess threw herself into prayer as the two of them began to move once again, searching out a safe place while suffering the loss of Maji.
The two travelers eventually came to a small valley, run through by a river. Life flourished this area – in rocks, vegetation, and water. It was the perfect place for their worship of the gods. With new vigor, they set out to build a shrine of smooth rocks by the riverbed.
And they prayed. Word of them spread, some of the Second Rising (as they had named the new pack group) had returned, already knowing of the religion. They set out gather more, for dogs are pack creatures. They wished to make a sanctuary for those who had hurt in the past.

Brief Description of your Pride/Pack: Kuuza-upanga is an isolated pride that values skill in battle above all else. Their home base is located in the cliffs surrounding the Kokari waterfall, which resides in the midst of a harsh, unforgiving jungle. Their lives revolve around 'selling' their battle services to outside groups in exchange for goods, and long standing agreements. They are mercenaries; hired claws looking for the best deal. Once bought, their loyalty will only come into question when a better offer is presented.
As the pride grows in numbers, so does their reputation for quality service. They have an extensive network of spies prowling the rogue lands (perhaps even dabbling in established prides/packs), ferreting out possible leads. The one thing that remains certain is this; you don't find the Kuuza, they find you. The only thing more secretive than their agenda is the location of their home base, and outsiders are never welcomed.

Many years ago, a pride flourished near the Kokari Waterfall. Although it’s members never went without, their numbers were small; a strategy used to be better survive in the harsh landscape. The Kutembea’moja were harsh to outsiders, and made many enemies from those that were considered neighbors. One such pride, the Mbaya’mabaya, could only take so much. While their pride suffered from the intense heat of the jungle, their wretched neighbors were thriving. Not only was the Kutembea’moja near a constant source of fresh water, the waterfall shielded the pride, making the area a veritable fortress. The Mbaya were a much larger pride, with more to gain from one final, massive strike and the Kutembea knew it. Fearing the pride would not survive the war, a lone guard by the name of Reivar tasked himself with finding allies.
The brave lion found anyone who would help He gathered many willing fighters from across the land and brought them back to his home. With the numbers he collected, they were sure to win! His band was eclectic in both skill and species, but far more balanced than the straight laced forces waiting back in the Kutembea. No lion would be able to match the speed of his cheetahs, the wit of his hyenas, or any of the other traits that Reivar brought together. With his warriors at his side, Reivar knew in his heart that their enemies would fall!
When the hopeful warrior returned home, he expected a warm welcome, a hero’s welcome, for what he accomplished would save the pride! Reivar’s hopes, however, were dashed. The Pride, was stubborn. They absolutely refused the help of their allies, going so far as trying to drive them out. Why did they need help from outsiders? What if they were Mbaya spies in disguise?! Their ways had always saved them before, and would do so again.
The war raged on, and Reivar watched from atop the cliffs. His plan and his aid refused, he turned to his second in command, a cheetah named Rehema. Together, the pair came up with a new plan - one to take over. It mattered little to either one which of the two warring factions won, for within a fortnight of the battle they would take the prize. The Kutembea were slaughtered by the Mbaya, but due to a lack of proper diet, the winning forces were weakened. They could not withstand Reivar’s surprise attack, and were quicky vanquished themselves. With the Mbaya nearly decimated, Reivar stood his ground. He challenged their, who would not even fight his own war.
The pair fought. Rehema led the defense, and used her forces to keep the Mbaya back so that the fight would be uninterrupted. The King was overcome by Reivar’s brutal tactics, succumbing to his wrath like a sandcastle being washed away by the tide.
Reivar stood trimphant. He commanded what was left of the Mbaya to fight with him, or leave. Nothing would ever be the same now. Reivar’s home was marked in war and blood, and so were the lives of those that now called this ‘new’ land home.
Rehema established the culture to which the present day Kuuza live. While their forces fought each battle brought to them by allies of the Mbaya, Rehema created a life for them. One that would aid in the future success of the ever expanding mercenaries. Brutality and ruthlessness was needed to claim their spot, but guidance and trust was needed to keep it strong. She wanted to create a home for her people; one that they would be proud to fight for. As generations went by, the new Pride, dubbed the Kuuza-upanga, changed. While the war was never forgotten, the old ways were phased out under the new, and a unified front was created.
While the Kuuza continue to travel, the Kokari Waterfall will always be their home. They will raise families under it’s protective shield, and teach new generations to guard that which is more precious than life itself; family.
