Anita Blake Wiki

This unnamed pride is the St. Louis werelion lycanthrope group in the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series. Anita Blake eventually becomes Regina (or Queen) of this pride.

Under Joseph, the initial Rex/King, the pride was formed of mostly submissives and college students. When Haven became Rex, he brought in more lions that could act as muscle. Nicky had to kill some of them when he took over as Rex after Anita killed Haven.
