Name: Ravi ("sun" in indian)
Breed: Bengal Tiger
Siblings: Shere Khan (half)
Personality: Ravi is nothing like his half brother, all though he has quite a temper and when he gets angry, you better get as far away from him as possible. He is a smart tiger, and he can see right away if someone isn't worth his trust, thus he is very careful about who he lets near him. Despite all these little qualities, Ravi is a much friendly, positive and less hatefilled version of his half brother, though he is an excellent fighter, he only uses these skills to hunt and defend himself. Ravi enjoys being a loner rather than hanging around other tigers, or basically any other animals, and most of them are somewhat afraid of him, mainly because he is related to Shere Khan. Still, he doesn't care what others think, and doesn't let anyone tell him what to do or boss him around, and he pretty much goes by his own will. Ravi has a soul of a vagabond, who likes to roam the jungle and see new sights, sometimes he might travel for days and only stop to find food or water, also he loves watching the stars at night, for he finds it extremely relaxing.
History: Ravi's mother was attacked by a rogue who forced her to mate with him, and then ran away. When Ravi was born, his mother already had a teenage son, Shere Khan, who wasn't happy at all to have a little half brother. Sadly only two weeks later she became seriously ill, and died, leaving her two sons survive on their own. Ravi was way too young to survive alone, so Shere Khan to take care of him, even though he hated the little cub and in a way saw him quilty of their mother's death. He hunted food for Ravi, and looked after him, but he never acknoweledged him as his brother. And as soon as Ravi was old enough to take care of himself, Shere Khan, who was already an adult, left, and Ravi didn't hear from him again, except when he had also become a grown tiger and found out Shere Khan had started hunting people. Ravi was outraged and couldn't accept his half brother's actions, so he decided he'd never want to have anything to do with him again. He began to wander around the rainforests and became a rogue, most of the animals he crossed paths with fled before him, all because he was a tiger, like Shere Khan who had been terrorizing the jungle. Ravi didn't care though, he decided he'd never let anyone tell him what to do or what to be like, he would either be accepted for who he was, or not accepted at all.
Relation to Jungle Book: Half brother of Shere Khan.
