Name Meaning: 'Captivating' - Arabic Seer: No Pride:Bahari'mtoto Rank: Hlare
Personality: Extremely shy, Faatina isn't one to go out of her way to talk to someone unless she feels it'll benefit the other party. Being a kind, caring young girl she does tend to like most she meets, needless of any differences they may have to her. Those she loves to spend the most time with coincidentally happen to be from her family, which is great because she comes from such a large family. Faatina's favorite lioness in the world is her mother, Jesenya. She seems to find her to be her role model in life, but also her best friend - someone that she can have a heart-to-heart with, and also look up to. She is extraordinarily loving of her entire family, pretty much like on those terrible, old sitcoms, even when they do get on her nerves... which tends to be a bit more often than she'd hope for.
Name Meaning: 'Maintain well; possesses good' - Persian Seer: No Pride:Mwezi'Johari Class: High Rank: Lady
Personality: Dareia is a very kind and sweet girl. She is considerate of other's and their emotions, all the while loving those most important in her life - her family. Though she does tend to talk a lot, she sure knows when to keep her trap shut and listen to those who deserve to be respected. Whenever she's not speaking, most know that it's because she's upset, unhappy, or thinking about something particularly deep.
Most seem to believe that Dareia is pretty close to perfect - between her fantastic personality, and her current social standing at one of the Sultan's daughters, but she is far from it. She knows she has her flaws and knows to never be cocky or too proud because of this. One of such flaws would be the nocturnal awakenings that she often has. She seems to have middle insomnia, in which she will wake up in the middle of the night and find herself unable to return to sleep. Instead of sleeping, she finds herself thinking about things too personal to discuss with her family, or attempting to make things like bits of jewelry by weaving tall grass and whatnot by the light of the moon. Many don't know about this disorder she seems to have; and she doesn't care. Dareia finds the moon plenty company in her near-sleepless nights.
Name Meaning: Currently unknown Seer: No Pride:Dov'Strunmah Rank: Kiir Vahlok
Personality: Kis'erela is anything but shy - she is one rowdy girl. Over-excitable, rambunctious, and reckless, Kis'erela is one who likes to think she knows what a good time is. She's the opposite of lazy; she'll leave you in the dust if you don't try to keep up. Many believe she acts like a boisterous little cub, but Kis'erela does understand when it's time to settle down and act like an adult; she doesn't have much of a serious side, but she can show it in the right moment. Over all, Kis'erela is just a fun-loving girl looking for some friends who're able to keep up with her.

Name Meaning: 'Almost princess' - Japanese Seer:Yes Pride:Iknimaya Rank: 'eveng'nariyu
Personality: Ayaukuhime is a very kind, well-mannered, never out-spoken cub. She as the stereotyped "perfect" personality; always respectful, never judgemental; and the list goes on. The only truly bad thing about her personality is her daydreams. Kuhi could lie on her back, staring at the clouds, and getting lost in her thoughts for a full day and pay no one else any mind. Unfortunately, that usually ends up in her tripping an older lion, which tends to make them a bit unhappy with her.
Those daydreams of hers usually never have much variety; every time they are about the future, and what wonders may come of it. They're especially driven by two factors; one being her mother's driving ambition for her to marry into royalty, and the second being the hopeless romantic inside her. The daydreams are usually of her meeting a noble cub and the two falling in love with each other; him turning out to be a Mikoto, which in turn leads her to be some sort of a princess.
Sure; Ayaukuhime is generally really happy with her life. She adores all of her siblings (yes, even Isolde), and love her mother deeply. She's come to grips with the fact that she'll never have a father in the picture, and has decided that she'd rather her life as it is, than have her biological father who she'd never really known step into her life.
Name Meaning: 'To envy' - Latin Seer: No Pride:Ukuhlwa'Izwe (Outlands) Rank: Scar
Personality: A little green-eyed monster lives inside Livius, and it doesn't seem to wish to come out any time soon. Not fully fledged quite yet, the envy is unable to fully enrapture Livius's mood and personality, but it's still there, hidden beneath his swirl-encrusted surface. Normally able to control the jealousy he feels towards others, Livius finds himself having more and more trouble with keeping it under wraps as the days wear on, and he sees more and more to be jealous of.
When not in a fit of jealousy, Livius is actually a pleasant little cub. Though he keeps his speaking to a minimal, he isn't quite shy. He believes that each word should carry as much meaning as possible, and therefore refuses to spout out whatever first comes to mind. Unusually wise for his age, but inexcusable demoralized for his age, due in part to his envy. Even though he tries to keep it all cool and calm on the surface, most know that Livius is like a time bomb, ready to set off at any given moment.
Name Meaning: 'Summer' - Hebrew Seer: No Pride: None Rank: Rogue
Personality: Kayitz isn't exactly stupid, although others may perceive her as so. She has realized what is going on within the pride, but actually has the intelligence to block any and all signs of it out. She uses her very silly attitude to purposefully mask herself from reality. Ignorance is a choice in Kayitz's case; she knows that she is much happier than her sisters and prefers it that way. Before things within the pride started falling apart, Kayitz wasn't much of a talker. She seemed ignorant all throughout her life because she chose not to speak about much. When she found ignorance as an escape, her talking became much more frequent and scattered. She's taken on a very strange and ridiculous persona. Her demanor thus has become rather obnoxious, although deep inside she is a very curious, intelligent little girl (but don't let her know that!).
Name Meaning: 'Imitate' - Swahili Seer: No Pride:Ulili-Mlindaji Rank: Guard
Personality: Kuiga strongly loves and respects Hifadhi, and regards him as his father. As such, Kuiga adores him in such a way that he aims to emulate him. His spare time is primarily dedicated to becoming stronger, faster, and overall better. He is quiet and contemplative, but intelligent and curious. Kuiga greatly enjoys hunting, but only for the thrill of the kill; his true passion is in (of course) protective others. As such, he is very "big brother"-ly towards his siblings, which sometimes leads to them not adoring him as much as he'd hope. Very distrustful, Kuiga is wary around those he doesn't know well, but is always open to learning more about them to make sure they're of solid character. He is very moralistic and pious, and a real family... cub. He also likes long walks on the beach through the woods and adores nature in the utmost.
Name Meaning: 'Caring' - Swahili Seer: No Pride: None Rank: Rogue
Personality: Although he used to be a very happy, carefree guy, Kujali has hardened and become a grumpy, snippy old man. He lost all that he cared for in this world, his brother Briskei and his sister Kuamini, when he was younger due to his issue with sleepwalking. And since then he has been embittered, wandering the Rogue lands in search of them.

Name Meaning: 'Harmony' - Swahili Seer: No Pride:Nchi'mahadhi Rank: Huntress
Personality: Very sweet and peaceful, Maelewano is the personification of her name. Though she prefers not to sing (but will when she must), she adores beating on the drums with her mother as well as crafting various tail ornaments for noise making (they're her favorite, at least!). Although she isn't shy, Maelewano comes off as so because she isn't extraordinarily extroverted. She prefers to sit back and in the background and observe rather than take the spotlight herself. She's extremely considerate and family-oriented and adores her pride with everything she's got.
Name Meaning: 'Harmony' - Swahili Seer: No Pride: None Rank: Rogue
Personality: Zelopytia was born into the pride as an original Toka. She was always a chatty little girl, enjoying her work as a scholar. While collecting various wells of knowledge, she met many others who ended up adoring her. Through all of these connections Zelopytia was eventually (to her surprise) elected governer of the biggest province of all - the Mkoani. At first she was kind of disgruntled - how on earth could she focus on learning more now? Then, she grew to love her new role within the pride. Zelopytia felt extremely useful, and got to work with and talk to even more lions! Eventually, this new excitement faded a bit and she grew disgruntled once again. Dealing with the council thoroughly frustrated Zelopytia, and she soon because extremely jealous of the power they held, especially with their indifference towards their position within the pride. This has made the previously upbeat lioness into someone who's a bit more gruff behind closed doors. This, however, doesn't stop her from doing her duty as governor: she continues taking on her responsibilities as best as she can, continuing to enjoy the abundance of interaction with the rest of the province.
Zelopytia enjoys her position as governor! She is constantly thrusting herself into the depths of the province, making sure to keep an eye on everything. She is constantly friendly and makes sure to be extremely accessible. Though she loved the Mkoani, she absolutely despises the Council. They are difficult to work with and misuse their power, which Zelopytia loathes. She adores the Keepers, however. Mainly, she simply allows the Keepers to do their thing; she is well aware that they know how to do their job. The only time she'll call on them to do something is if she's worried about the safety of the pride or knows of something that may need their supervision. Overall, Zelopytia sees the pride's members as pretty equal. She tries to treat Druids as kindly as she can, as she realizes that their life within the pride (especially within the Mkoani province) is extremely hard.
