Character History: Bibi was born in a small pride, her mother and aunt always on the move to protect them from dangerous males. The years passed and Bibi herself had and lost litters to the constant change of males in power. One litter she sees live to form a small pride. In her constant losing battle to protect her cubs, she loses her tail to a hyena. She one day meets a male, Dreadlocks, who isn’t disgusted by her lack of a tail. He loves her for her motherly nature, healing touch, fighting heart, and caring spirit. She becomes his mate and eventually follows him to the Pride Lands. She doesn’t care for the ruthlessness often shown by her mate’s Mapogo coalition brothers, but she loves him, and stands with him through everything. Mourning when he mourns, rejoicing when he rejoices. She can hardly contain her excitement when she learns she is expecting his cubs, and decides to keep it secret until she starts to show.
