She walked silently through the woods at night. Her nose and eyes searching for prey, her ears listening for danger. Cast out of her family tribe as soon as she was weened off of the milk of her replacement mother. Her father was a blue leopard, her mother had been a white tiger with light blue stripes. As soon as Ningai had been born her mother was killed and she and her brother where set outside for crows to feed on. Her brother had died from the cold. But not Ningai, having survived the night they took her in thinking she was worthy to live. They gave her to a nursing queen. For six months she was cared for but even though she was given food and a warm place to sleep she was an outcast. Which is why she guessed they had called her Ningai which in her tribes language meant Outcast.
Once kicked out of her tribe Ningai had to learn fast or die. It took her a week to learn how to take down small prey like mice, squirrels and rabbits. She fed on those for months to small to take on the bigger prey. Now Ningai was two years old and had more then proven herself. She was strong and beautiful. She was a combination of her parents. Her mothers white pelt, green and light blue stripes, her fathers green eyes and darker blue spots. The end stripes melded a little with the darker blue.
A twig broke and Ningai froze, her ears tilted forward and she scented the air. Gazelle, she licked her lips and crouched and slowly began to make her way towards the gazelle. There it was, she spotted it about ten tail lengths from her. She crawled forward freezing not moving a inch when it looked up. Finally she was close enough and she leaped, as she leaped she let out a loud roar. Her claws sank into it's back. It struggled but Ningai was stronger. After a few moments she managed to pull it down and sink her large fangs into it's neck killing it. During the struggle she had forgotten to look for danger and had no idea that she was being watched as she finished it off.
