Sleekswift was the only son of Shabel the cheetah (though she did also have several daughters), and the only one of his family quick enough to get out of the way when a burning tree collapsed on them as they tried to escape a forest fire. The fire had been caused by poachers trying to smoke out animals in order to get some easy kills, but they made a mistake when they tried to shoot Sleekswift. Despite being winged by a bullet, more by luck than judgement, the fleeing feline led his pursuers in their Jeep over a cliff into a ravine (Sleekswift himself jumped safely to the other side). The bodies of the poachers were later found by a district game warden, but Sleekswift was by then many miles away (though presumably still bleeding).
