When conceptualizing this piece,
I was generally reminded of the protective
female forces in my life:

My mother, my sister, my wife…
I even thought of my niece who
somehow manages to bully her
older brother while also being
his strongest advocate.

The hyenas lend themselves to
the protective concept of this
piece given their matriarchal nature.
