Assertive: Cougars can assert themselves gently without needing to be aggressive. They tackle the porcupine, unlike other animals, toyingly upending them with their claws, exposing their soft underbelly. People with the power inherent in them do not have to use force, they can show courage and gently achieve their objectives.
Balance: The mother stays with her cubs for a year teaching them hunting and survival skills. Initially she will hunt and bring dead animals for their food.

Power: The cougar combines strength, speed, decisiveness, agility and assertiveness to create the power to kill its prey without remorse.
