There . . .
Quova (full name Quo Vadis) was born the third of four fawns . . . all born on the same day. Her mother, Bambi's sister Geeri, had chosen a spot outside Silver Herd territory (in Bambi's forest, infact), to have her fawns, she bore very late into her life.
Quo Vadis was born a member of the Silver Herd, led by Lord Malvon at the time. She was the only one of her siblings to have not inherited their father's 'muzzle spots' - for they, instead, were inside her ears. Because her the spot made her ears look like butterfly wings, she was often called ''Butterfly'' by her father.
. . . And Gone.
Quova was given her (full) name for the reason that she, soon after birth, disappeared from her mother's sight, only to be found shortly after, several metres away from the birth area, stuck in a briar patch. It was Friend Owl's mate (Mrs Friend Owl) who had trailed her; and being fluent in many languages including Latin ( having learned and travelled a lot), she had been following the fawn while muttering, 'Quo Vadis?' (Where are you going?). Geeri warmed to the phrase, and named her daughter after it.
Stutterings and Spoonerisms
Quova was fairly nervous when she was very, very young. It took her time to become bolder; and when less plucky, she was prone to stuttering and stumbling over her words. Often she made 'spoonerisms', ie. verbals errors in which she mixed up the beginnings of words - so that 'Hello, ma'am!' would come out as 'Mello ham!', and similar.
Her father and mother gently helped her to be more confident. She followed her parents around almost everywhere they went if they allowed it. She was introduced to many of their friends, including Geeri's old friends Thumper's family. Thumper's daughters, and his mate, took to Quova. They were very vocal characters, and talking to them soon helped Quova speak more bravely.
Relation to the Bambi Universe
She is the granddaughter of the Great Prince and Bambi's mother, and thus the niece of Bambi and Faline; she is friends with Thumper's sister's and his mate Miss Bunny.
