The year 2295 was a living nightmare. It was as though hell itself found its way into this life. The Government's call for the genocide of Shifters brought about the end of everything held dear. Many Shifters tried to find shelter and safety -- they would do anything to get away from the humans that were ordered to hunt them down like... like they were parasites.
Some formed underground bases and hid there. Some Shifters fled to human friends that they felt could still be trusted. Some even joined packs of animals. But this one village in India had a radical idea. They knew how to disappear from the face of the Earth, never to be searched for again.
They flew to Brazil, in the Amazon Rainforest. An uncontacted tribe of people lived there. The government was sworn to never interfere in their ancient and unique culture -- they were protected by the very same government that sought to destroy Shifters.
The Indian village spent weeks trying to find this uncontacted tribe, and all the while they prayed that they would find safety amongst them. Finally, after what felt like an eternity, they found this hidden group of people. The tribe called themselves the Tongaxe. And, by some sort of miracle, their king was a Shifter. He took pity on the lost foreigners -- he even called them Eranchi Katito, or "Lost Brothers." However, the people from India had to agree to one thing: conform wholly to the Tongaxe culture and rituals, and to submit to the king.
It was more than a fair deal. And so, as the centuries ticked by, the threat from UNIT seemed to be nothing but an ancient nightmare -- an ancient fairytale, meant only to scare children at night.
Generations later, Kahiwexi's mother, descended from the Indian village, was wedded to the new king of Tongaxe, named Nyxuru. He loved her deeply; she was his whole world, his everything. But then, in childbirth, she died. Nyxuru was crushed, but he vowed to treasure their daughter and to love her to the ends of the Earth. He named his daughter Kahiwexi, and he even gave her her mother's last name as a tribute.
Kahiwexi grew up spoiled, because her father gave her anything she wished for -- she was even allowed to do men's errands such as hunting. How could Nyxuru ever say no to her, the child of his dead wife? However, when she was thirteen, he did put one thing on her shoulders: responsibility. He dubbed her the future heir of the Tongaxe people. Kahiwexi was honored, but she had to learn self-control and responsibility and humility. The process was... painful, to say the least. But she blossomed into a beautiful, mature heir. Nyxuru was so proud of his daughter. The people felt safe knowing that she would be their next leader. They trusted her.
She discovered her shift-powers when she was sixteen. She went through a ritual that celebrated the transition into her new animal form -- she was adorned in bright paint, fanciful garments, and heavy jewelry as songs filled her ears. And when she transformed into a graceful cheetah, the people cheered.
The next year, she was betrothed to a boy named Chitithra. Kahiwexi liked him, and she believed that he would make an excellent king to rule beside her. Her father was delighted that she was pleased with her soon-to-be-husband.
It was after this that things went horribly wrong.
Kahiwexi was out hunting with some of her people. She was leading the expedition while her father stayed at home tending to some personal matters.
