Bagheera/Baloo (Jungle Book) - Works | Archive of Our OwnHe is a black panther melanistic Indian leopard who serves as friend, protector and mentor to the "man-cub" Mowgli. Everybody knew Bagheera, and nobody dared to cross his path; for he was as cunning as Tabaqui , as bold as the wild buffalo, and as reckless as the wounded elephant. But he had a voice as soft as wild honey dripping from a tree, and a skin softer than down. Born in captivity in the menagerie of the Raja of Udaipur, Rajasthan , India , Bagheera begins to plan for his freedom after his mother dies. Once he is mature and strong enough, he breaks the lock on his cage and escapes into the jungle, where his ferocity and cunning nature win him the respect of all its other inhabitants, except for the very incredibly conceited Shere Khan The Tiger. Bagheera reveals all this to Mowgli later.
