Meet Zihra

Supreme beauty, unchanged by age and circumstance since first being sighted at her mother’s side, Zihra has grown into the ultimate queen.

Loving, bold and courageous, she herself is now an incredible mother of her own three cubs, and a fearsome hunter. Although she’s never lost her playful nature, engaging in ‘stalk and chase’ games with her cubs since birth, she has lost her heart to the sublimely handsome Assegaia. Together with her fiercely beautiful daughter, Nebu, the three now form the Royal Trinity, with the ancient burial site at the baobab tree providing their central Temple.
