Macheo is an orangey brown cub with a fluffy coat, her cubhood spots having faded at an unusually young age. Her paws, muzzle, and underbelly are a paler, almost peach-colored shade. She is chubby and round-bellied, with a wide, circular face and thick features. She has bright tangerine orange eyes that gave her her name due to their bright hue, similar to the sky during a sunrise. Her nose is small and apricot colored, and the tuft at the end of her tail is the reddish brown color of rust.
Slightly overweight, Macheo is a medium-sized lioness with a somewhat plump belly and fairly short legs. She has a thick neck, heavy with muscle and adipose. Her tail is likewise thick, and long as well. Her face is round and friendly-looking, with a high forehead and low cheekbones. A pronounced line of longer fur is present atop her head. Her rich caramel brown coat was thick and soft, pale gingery brown on her paws, muzzle, and underbelly. Though her fur grew deeper in color as she matured, Macheo's eyes did not change one bit- they have retained the same fiery red-orange, piercing shocking in their brightness. She has a slender pinkish orange nose, and the small tuft at the end of her tail is russet brown.
Little can faze Macheo; she is a determined cub with a lot of spirit. Her lively spunk is almost always present, and she is even more curious than her cousin Kingiza. She asks questions about whatever interests her, and is never satisfied with half-answers. Evasiveness irritates her, and she can become quite short with those who are not direct. Macheo is an imaginative cub, full of creative ideas, never afraid to share her thoughts with others. She can be thoughtless at times, and her determination can lead to her being overly stubborn. She enjoys play-fighting with her siblings, but is never too rough with them. Macheo is also easily torn apart by grief, and does not recover from sorrow easily. Though she knows death is part of Maisha Urari, it is very difficult for her to accept the passing of a loved one.
