Concept artwork of Kobi and Prita

Kobi and Prita can be seen in the very first scene, drifting menacingly over the savanna. They can later be seen gathering around the lionesses as they make a kill, tense and ready to claim the abandoned carcass. While Prita is anxious to eat, Kobi is more patient and holds her son back with one wing. Soon enough, the pride has taken its fill, and the vultures move in to eat.

Kobi is said to be more beady-eyed and craggy than her son Prita. According to concept artwork, she has dusky brown feathers.

Much more patient than her son, Kobi bears the wisdom of many years, knowing when to pick and choose her battles.
