Binah was born and raised her whole life on Priderock, she was one of the cubs who always wanted to help and enjoyed it when others thanked her. She was alot more outspoken in her early cub hood, as the only way other cubs would notice her help was if she was loud and confident. As she grew older she learned that being upfront might make her look self centered and bossy so she drastically changed her approach. Her confidence dwindled and she grew up much more gentler and quiet.
As a cub, she was childhood friends with one of the princes, Jabari , and got along quiet well with his siblings. She liked them all enough, but when the king told the pride of Aisha becoming the future queen, she noticed a rift between the siblings, Kanu was turning away from them and changing into a angry and jealous cub. This died down after the cubs were set in a competition to see who would be the best leader. But Binah still noticed the cocky and arrogance in Kanu. She was torn between liking his sure attitude and disliking his in you're face about him being the best. Binah was unsure who would make the better leader out of the three, but if Kanu cleared up his act she might've thought him...
The problem was that Binah wanted to help heal the rift between Kanu and his siblings, she wanted to help him be a better lion and knew what she was getting herself into was a bad idea. Kanu was bad news, but she didn't stop herself from staying away from him. She noticed how even though he treated others nicely, they knew he was pretending and talked about him behind his backs. Binah knew it was true, he lied to everyone to gain favor, but they should not act like this, he did deserve some respect after all, he was sort of trying..
Binah grew more and more attached to Kanu, but realized too late. She felt embarrassed about her new found crush on him, she knew many other lionesses liked him for his status and good looks and were more noticeable to Kanu than herself.
Binah still supported Jabari in his mission to become King, after all they were friends, he was also a kind lion but she knew his sister might be a good Queen if she was chosen.
She spent alot of the time with the pride's young cubs, caring for them as she knew they would be the ones who lived and served the pride in the future rulers rein. Binah enjoyed her time spent with the younger cubs, she enjoyed teaching and playing with them, pleased when the cubs would run over and babble on about their day to her, who won a play fight , who caught a bug, who climbed the highest. She praised them all and kept them out of trouble-best she could-
Binah was happy with her place in the pride, hunting and caring for the cubs, cheering up her friends, giving advise and encouragement to Jabari. She also subtly spent time with Kanu, being kind to him and praising when he did something that was good and not on purpose.
