A extremely independent , ambitious, driven woman who is fierce, backs up her shit, and takes care of her own, friends, and family.
"woah bro, behave. She's a lioness, she will rip you apart."
------------------------------

" I need no man to take care of me, I am a lioness, I conquer, vanquish what needs to be, and I take home the bounty."
------------------------------------

person 1: "you can't do that, it's dangerous, especially for a girl"
Lioness: "Well, that's nice and you can kiss my ass too. Cuz, I am gonna conquer that shit like a beast."

------------------------------

if a strange random male/ female makes a sexual approach or physical attack...she is ready to put her all into smiting...every wound, broken part, scream...is that sound of glory... another step towards this person never bothering her again.
