My name is Zina. It comes from the word meaning secret spirit. I live in Zkanda, sister tribe to Wakanda. They are very similar, except our tribe is matriarchal, so women are the rulers. My mother’s name was Efuru, meaning Daughter of Heaven. We follow the old ways, unlike our brother tribe Wkanda, who follow new rules. I am Princess, while my mother was Queen. One day, a large woman who called her self Lady Liger came. She sought to rule our tribe, but my mother would not let that happen. Lady Liger challenged my mother to a duel in which my mother lost. Not just the battle, but her life. I was witness to this, helpless while my mother was killed. I ran to the temple and pray to our Goddess that I would have the strength to continue. I took my new suit and became the Jaguar. I escaped from Africa to America, where I infiltrated a mountain base that was home to two teens, a Martian and a kryptonian. They didn’t see me, but I watched their every move. I also studied their tech, inside and out. With vibranium tools like Tchala’s, I easily made it in and out without being seen. o so I thought. What I didn’t know was that one day, I was seen. And that brings our story to a beginning.
