Occupation: Multi-sport athlete
Culturally, jackals have been looked down upon as dirty, deceitful animals by their canid peers, and centuries-old stigmas tend to resist change. Nevertheless, Dhahabu did his best to make a name for himself, channeling his energies into fair play in various track-and-field and combat sports, and somewhat got ahead through hard work.
