What does she look like?
Savanna is an older lioness with cool gray fur with a slight pink undertone to it and a lighter creamy-gray undercoat. She has markings above and below her eyes. Her nose is a sandy-pink color, and part of her muzzle is graying. Her eyes are a light orange color, similar to her cub's eyes.
What is her personality like?
As a mother, Savanna was a bit restrictive and protective with her cubs, especially after the passing of her mate, their father. As she got older, she began to relax more and was much more gentle, especially with her adopted grandcub, Bibi.
Savanna has a brother who she hasn't seen in years and a nephew from her that she's never met. She has two cubs, Leona and Nel, with her mate, Moya. She has an adoptive grandcub named Bibi and a daughter-in-law named Kat.
Where does she live?
She used to live in a family pride with her parents and brother before leaving to live on her own. She eventually formed a pride with her mate, Moya. After his passing and being injured, she took her cubs to live in a new pride led by Ni.
What's her story?
Savanna and her brother were born and raised by their parents until both decided to leave and find their own way once they were old enough. Not long after, Savanna met Moya, a lion on a similar path to her. The two became friends and traveled together before developing feelings for one another. Savanna eventually fell pregnant with their first cub, Leona, when they was a bit older, and gave birth to her without any issues.
Savanna was protective of Leona, as most mother's are, and didn't let Leona go off on her own despite her daughter's rather rambunctious personality. She was strict but fair, and eventually began to soften over time. She found herself pregnant again with her and Moya's second and last cub, as not long after, Moya was killed after a hunting lesson with Leona went wrong and he was trampled. Leona was luckily uninjured, but shaken by her father's death, as was Savanna. The cub, named Lionel, was born healthy though.
As Leona grew, Savanna trusted her to take care of Nel while she would go and hunt in order to provide for them all. Unfortunately, one day after fetching dinner, a group of hyenas decided that they wanted the meal, and a scuffle broke out. Savanna lost and was left injured. No amount of TLC would help her, so she took it upon herself to search for a pride to help. It wouldn't be long until they came upon one, thankfully. The pride was led by a lion named Ni, who was welcoming to the family. Cautious but grateful, Savanna and her cubs were accepted into the pride and she was treated for her injuries.
She found a friend in Ni after the fact. He was an older lion like her, and he understood what life as a rogue was life. He sympathized with her at the loss of her mate and treated her cubs well. Nel especially liked him, he was like a father to him. It was endearing to Savanna, and perhaps she'd give this relationship thing another go.
