if i were to replace my character with an animals i would change it to a deer because he is scared and is being hunted by someone trying to kill him. he is really skiddish and always thinks someone is following him. he loses his friends like deer lose their moms or friends during hunting season. i would change the character that is trying to kill him to a lion because he is very sneaky and he stalks his prey before he goes in for the kill. he watches the first victim for a week before he kills him. And he is relentless he never gives up a kill even if it gets away sometimes.
