the legend begins!
The Lion King. It is a tale of family, love, responsibility, betrayal, friendship, faith, hope, and coming of age; the very elements that we all must face in our own life adventures. But the story of the Pridelands did not end with Mufasa, Sarabi, Simba, Nala, Kiara, and Kovu. Africa's chronicle has continued on long after, with these great leaders looking on from the glittering evening stars. Africa's stories, the histories of these majestic lion prides, are still being written: here on Ulaya, the Lion King RPG.

i just can't wait to be king
general information
    NAME: Sappho
    GENDER: Female
    SPECIES: Leopard
    RANKING: Member
    AGE: Adult, about 3 years of age

    PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A true hunter of the savannah, Sappho holds the basic genes of a leopard. Lithe body and flexible muscles, skin and bones make up the feline's frame. Her size is fairly normal and would be easily dismissed as a standard leopard if it was not for the crook in her tail. A small birth defect has left her tail with dented-like look, an unmistakable trait. Other than that, her perfectly spotted pelt and pale blue eyes are nothing more than your average, ordinary leopardess traits.
in the circle, the circle of life
personal information
    PERSONALITY: Sappho is quite an eccentric character. Her head is always in the clouds and she never views things the same as any one else. She is not dumb, nay, actually the opposite. The leopardess will surprise you with new methods or techniques that are efficient and even fun. Though, she does not grasp basic, seemingly menial concepts (i.e. Gravity, Velocity [especially this one], Dangers, the food chain [she will sometimes attempt to eat grass], mortality). Also, sometimes, she ignores pain when she is extremely focused or determined thanks to her detached mind. But that can be a disadvantage, not knowing her own strengths or weaknesses (as mentioned before, she does not grasp mortality well, often not knowing she can die). Because of these mental set backs, Sappho needs someone or a pride to take care of her. She can hunt, fight, and do basic tasks, just not very well, and often executes them in her own style.


    HISTORY: Sappho herself does not remember much of her past, nor does she see the need to. She grew up with her mother and a brother, living by a creek in a tree, as most leopards do. When she was little, her brother died, leaving her an only child. Her mother accepted it, giving it not a second thought, she had lost children before; she expected Sappho to move on, too. Very wrong was Sappho's mother, for the young one was exquisitely confused. Her mother never explained where her brother, her only friend, her only playmate had disappeared to. So, Sappho wondered, Sappho pondered. She thought and thought everyday, rather than playing or pestering her mother. Imaginary friends soon became apart of her life, and she began exploring, only to ponder some more. Questioning her mother about the world presented no avail in Sappho's secret quest for knowledge, so she asked the other animals, developing great communication skills between species. Finally, Sappho became old enough to leave her mother, but of course the leopardess did not understand. Change was something she was not accustom to, and her apathetic mother lay the law down harshly. Her mother yelled and yelled at the young leopard who refused to move, until she had to chase her out by force. The mother scratched and scratched at her child's rear, but still Sappho refused to move. It wasn't until many claw marks later, that the young leopardess finally felt the pain, both physically and emotionally. The foreign experience crushed Sappho and she walked miserably for days, until she reached Nekuran land, completely exhausted.
