This lion (d. 1944) resided in the forests of Rochester, New York, in the 19th century.

Biography Edit

The lion was born sometime after 1930.[1]In 1944, the lion noticed a boy named Matt Clark, who was hiking with his friends. As Matt was about to sound the all-clear from atop a rock, the lion attacked. In quick order, he killed and ate him. Using its paws, it then dragged off the corpses of the others.

Lily learned about this the following day, and she was very upset. This event not only made her resent the beast, but also feel no respect or love for the entire lion species.

The lion, moments before its death.

After keeping the corpses hidden for an entire day, the lion returned to consume one of them. Before it could, however, it was spotted by Lily Clark and Hiram, who were "strafing" the forest together in a car. The lion turned to notice them, but before it could react, Hiram immediately gunned down the beast.

Physical Description Edit

Hiram: "That's the biggest lion I've ever seen!"
Lily Clark: "I know, right? What to do?"

This lion's skull is very similar to that of the tiger, although the frontal region is more depressed and flattened, with a slightly shorter postorbital region and broader nasal openings than that of a tiger. Its fur was dark ochraceous brown, and the color of its mane was black. Its tail ends in a black, hairy tuft. In some lions, the tuft conceals a hard "spine" or "spur", approximately 5 millimeters long, formed of the final sections of tail bone fused together. It is unknown what the function of the tuft and spine is. The lion was 360 centimeters long, and it weighed 312 kilograms, which is unusually huge. Its tail was anywhere between 90 to 105 centimeters.

The mane of the lion, unique among cats, is one of the most distinctive characteristics of the animal.

Relationships Edit

Lily Clark Edit

After the lion killed Lily's brother, she came to hate the lion, and by extension, the species itself. Her hatred of him ultimately proved deadly, as she played Hiram into helping her kill it in revenge.
