Aslo known as: The Demon, Skullcrusher
Species: Spotted Hyena
Parents: Unknown captive hyenas
Personality: She's manipulative, gets angry easily and never lets go. However she's not bad to the bone, but as a hyena trying to live in the wild among dogs she feels alone. She understands she needs to be strong and fear and violence is the only way she konws. She's really strong both mentaly and physicaly. She loves her freedom so much that she won't let anyone rule over her again.
Tanta was a zoo animal. At young age she was moved from her birthplace to a smaller zoo with only a few other hyenas in her cage. She was born in a zoo so she din't care about all the noisy hordes of people passing her by everyday, but she learned from other animals to never trust the humans.
One day a tsunami hit the city, damaging the cages and setting the animals free, however many of them died, getting hurt by soose parts of the fences or drowning. Scared and confused, Tanta ran way towards the city where she had to hide from humans that were after her and the other escaped animals. She saw several dogs that were also set free from thier homes running away to the wilderness and she decided to follow them to avoid humans. She was lost and had a hart time being alone without any idea how to survive in this strange enviroment, but she decided not to give up. She eventually stumbled across some wild dogs feasting on thier prey. Tanta noticed that they were confused an a bit scared to see a strange animal they've never seen before and she decided to use it on her advantage. Tanta was stronger than the dogs and she quickly found a way to survive. She dominated over the dogs and created her own pack that would hunt for her and protect her in case she ever sees a human again. With her pack she managed to survive, and she gained renown among the dogs as a strange animals that rules the pack. and an animal you don't want to mess with.
Tanta's teritory was once visited by a small army of wild dogs who tried to take away Tanta's pack members without her knowing. Tanta went to find the enemy's pack leader who were two large Great Danes. They gave her a choice to either joining them or getting killed, but tanta refused, saying she would rather die than bow to someone. Her pack lost many members in a bloody fight. The Great Danes did not interfere, letting thier minions do all the work. When they thought the job is done, they sent their champion dog to finish Tanta off, but they underestimated the small hyena, who crushed the champion's head with her strong jaws, right in front of them. She won again by making an impression of being an unbeatable beast from fawaway country and the enemy pack eventually left her alone. Later she found out that the two dogs were named Hougen and Genba and thier dog army grew to be the biggest in Japan. Tanta herself considered for a while to challenge Hougen again and take over Ou by herself, but she though it would be too dangerous for her small packa dn that humans may hear of her again.
Luckily, her area was avoided. Even though she did not defeat Hougen personally, he wanted to avoid the humiliation he get from running away from Tanta.
Strenght: She's very strong, stronger then most of the dogs, and being the unfamillar, strange-looking animal to the dogs - she easily intimidates others.
Weakness: being a captive born and and finding herself in an enviroment not natural for her species - she's not good at hunting and survival. She won't admit it but she completely relies on her pack.
Ginga relation: Hougen tried to take over her pack once.
