Has begun to support his younger brother Samaki when in conflict with females, still very cautious to instigate conflict with Lubutu however will redirect aggression to females.
Enjoys high social status but is hampered by lack of mobility (left arm) and so can be a target for harassment. She is the most people-orientated of the adults and can very affectionate with favourite staff members. Lulu does has definite mood swings but these seem to have mellowed a bit as she has aged.
Powerful and confident in herself. Rarely starts altercations but quick to come to the aid of her son Lubutu or daughter Lani, and then happy to see altercation through to the end.
Excellent maternal behaviour, very family-orientated. Was previously an active political player but has suffered as a result of the intimidation of grandson, Sandali. Selectively interactive with keepers she knows. Sometimes spits accurately at keepers if frustrated. Will stand up for herself when being intimidated by younger males.
Nervous and fearful when the subject of male dominance, suffers from campaign of intimidation from Lubutu and as a result a target for the younger males. Often becoming hysterical in response to it. Likes to be close to her mother Spitter for protection.
Independent, tough. On the outside of the main political power in the group but respectful due to her individual strength of character. A loner. She usually does not seek out the company of any of the group save her family. Very attentive to Sembi and will come to her aid immediately, putting herself in harms way.
