Tiger Characteristics

Tigers are daring and brave, and will fight any battle that they believe in, leading others along with them with their powerful personalities and forceful sense of purpose. Despite that, they can be sensitive and emotional and are easily hurt, especially if they feel that their friends or family have let them down. The tiger likes a challenge, and also likes to attack something new every so often - in fact they can be a little flighty at times! Tigers have a very strong sense of injustice and will speak out if they think something is unfair.
