A spunky hyena with a lot to prove, and many friends to help him on his way.
Kotch is rather laid back for the most part, easy-going, truly. His attitude of 'live and let live' is sort of his motra. He generally doesn't want any trouble, as he's gotten plenty of it in his youth. However, if you do managed to get him roused, then you'd wish you'd hadn't. Kotch has an unrelenting will about him. One that only a wasteland scavenger that was only trying to surive could set into him. None other of the prideland beasts can say they have the determination of the hyena. He also has quite the fierce attitude, and won't back down from a fight that he wants to fight.
Sharp teeth, paired with jaws that crush bones with ease.
Claws, more for digging than weapons, but still, their sharpness shouldn't be underestimated.
Thick hide and fur.
Ability to stomach decaying, rotted food.
While Hyenas usually aren't pack animals, they aren't solitary either. This is the perfect example of Kotch. He was raised on the plains as any normal hyena would, learning the chain of command, but honestly doesn't follow it. It lead to a lot of trouble with other animals when he was younger, particularly with a pack of lions. After roughhousing with the pride leader's cub, the lion scarred the yong hyena for life, giving him the fierce scar on his face. However, life went on, and Kotch learned to stay from lions...it wasn't that he didn't like them, or was scared of them. It's just that he found their 'King of the Plains' ego to be rather annoying. 'I'm on the top, and you're beneith me.' Honestly didn't settle well with him.
However, he's found friends with the Cheetahs. While none of them are particularly friendly or nice, they seem to tollerate him more than the King of the Plains.
