Jokhim Clan was a small clan of dholes linked by their bright and adventurous spirits. They would often head off expeditions to follow up on strange rumors - which turned into their downfall. When some of the clan who'd gone to investigate the stories coming out of the deep rainforest vanished, most of the rest went to investigate, leaving their native grounds nearly deserted save for pups and a lone female left to watch them. None have yet returned from the jungle to speak of what fate befell them, and they are feared to be lost forever.
Chiti (my char) would be the female left behind. She's more a maternal sort than an adventurer, so she was the designated babysitter, and she would certainly welcome Sri if she met him. Gets awful lonely without a clan around you.
I'm thinking of this as mostly just backstory for her, to explain why she has no clan while still giving an opportunity for pups to exist. Dunno exactly what happened to the rest of the clan in the jungle - that's up to Super Sekrit TP. There's potential for dholes from Jokhim returning from the jungle expedition, too, if someone decides to make such a character, or... not.
