Lisha was born of a litter of six (though many will try to say five it was six...)and immediately rose quite a bit of chatter as her young age. Lisha was a bit larger than the other girls though still smaller than her brother and was also the darkest pelted out of the bunch, where her younger littermate Loara was the very lightest. Lisha at first took after her mother with pale colored eyes and a tuft of fluff that fell across her face. She was a playful cub but as time went on her tuft of fur that made her feel the slightest bit like her mother grew...and grew growing longer and a tad father than that of her brother's own mane. She had heard quite a bit of snickering and hissing from others around but for a while she paid no mind, thinking nothing of it as a cub would normally do. It wasn't until she overheard one of the older females chittering about how something must have happened to Lisha before she was born, and some muttering of a "defect". Lisha wold often sneak away late at night to explore the other parts of the island, the darkness doing well to keep her hidden and even the pride across the island knew of Ishara's little "freak" cub.
Lisha left after countless insults about not looking a bit like her mother or siblings. Feeling like nothing more than an outcast, she left to find her father seeing that her mother did nothing of the harsh words from other lions and was almost blind to the actions toward her. Lisha blamed Ishara for never standing up to defend her simply because she never knew of what happened behind her back. (Hey who can blame Ish? She's got a lot of cubs. She can't have her eyes on one of them the whole time.) Lisha took Loara along with her knowing that if left with the others, Loara would feel nothing but sorrow knowing that her maned sister was seen as such a strange almost mutant sort of lioness due to her long mane. Lisha confronted Loki for abandoning them demanding answers and wondering why he left her and the other cubs and held slight resentment towards him for never explaining himself fully. She is neither close with her mother nor father due to neither understanding her plight and often spends time away from both, checking in once in a while from a distance but never getting close enough for either parent to really speak to her.
Lisha has yet to return because after Ish bore a new litter of cubs Lisha thought Ishara never cared that she left. Lisha then tried to go back to her father, who had also had a new slew cubs. Feeling that her existence was forgotten and no longer important to wither parent the maned lioness took to living alone, often spending her nights and days stalking prides to find even one other who shared in her suffering. She never asked for such a trait to befall her. It was assumed from her young age that she would take on the fluffy mane like look from her mother but it became too out of hand. The red undertones from her mother's genes and the dark coloring of her father left the lioness to look naught more than a shadow of the relationship they once had. They had forgotten the time they had with one another just as they had forgotten her.
Loki now lives with his new mate Joka and their two cubs Loka and Joki. Ishara has also moved on, now mated to her old friend Saigon with four new cubs of her own. Lisha often checks in to see how the new cubs are doing but has no intention of getting to know them due to the jealousy she bares towards them all. She left Loara in her father's care to watch over her and have her be there for their new half siblings. Lisha has yet to speak to either parent since their new cubs have been born.
