Msichana is a female African wildcat.
Msichana is a slender wildcat with shorts legs and a long tail. Her thin fur is dusky, sandy gray, with a light tawny chest and underbelly. Her ear are the same tawny hue, and her face is broken by many dark silver stripes in a tabby pattern. She has bands of black around her legs and tail, and her body is patterned with spots and stripes in a slightly darker hue than her main fur color. Her ears are rounded and erect, and her nose is pinkish-brown. She has almond-shaped light green eyes with slender eyebrows and long whiskers.
Far more mature in nature than her brother Kijana, Msichana is reserved and independent. She takes pride in accomplishing tasks on her own, without the assistance of others. Nevertheless, she is cordial and polite to other animals, content to occasionally exchange a few words of greeting to them. She is quick to become irritable with animals who do not leave her alone, especially Kijana. A somewhat unskilled fighter, she does her best to avoid provoking any animal who she would be unable to either outrun, outwit, or outfight.
Msichana and her brother Kijana were born in the Drylands in the outskirts of the Kavu Sana Plains. Their mother was able to keep them hidden from the Moyo Hodari Pride, but eventually moved her kittens closer to the Mkondo River, in the Uotaji Woods. There she raised them, and soon it was time for them to part ways. Kijana was disappointed to see his mother leave, but Msichana was eager to be on her own.
