Jadey is a maned lioness. She's a stubborn, tough, no-nonsense kinna gal. She doesn't take shit from anyone and is passionate about her feelings and beliefs. She is strong-willed and hard working. She has a drag-king persona named James and is super into masculine clothing. She loves dying her hair and can be seen with pretty much any colored streaks in it.
Her facial markings are based off lioness at the San Francisco zoo. Here's a bad photo I took of her when she came into the lion house for the keeper talk and TREATS!
And her mane is based off of a combination of that pretty lady above as well as this badass lady:
With my own flair, obviously.
Her mane is the result of a hormonal imbalance but she is proud of it and doesn't tolerate being mocked for it.
