Like most cubs in the Pridelands, Denahi is small and lithe. His shoulders are slight, though he is in good shape, being slim and moderately well-muscled.
His fur is auburn, though his muzzle, paws, and underbelly are all creamy brown in color.
His most distinctive features are his ear rims and a dark brown head tuft. His eyes are reddish-brown, a trait inherited from his mother and maternal grandfather.
Denahi is curious, adventurous, and almost foolishly brave, always sniffing for something fun to do. He also has a kindhearted nature that never seems to run dry, His creativity knows no bounds, which is likely due to his straightforward nature and ability to see every side of a situation.
