Origin

Raksha the Demon (or Mother Wolf as initially named) was a female wolf, member of the Seeonee pack who, while suckling her own cubs, decided also to adopt a human "cub" that her mate, Father Wolf, had found wandering in the jungle, naming him "Mowgli" (which means "frog" in the Speech of the Jungle) because of his hairlessness.

Defying the tiger, Shere Khan, who was determined to eat the man-cub, she revealed that her name was Raksha (which means "protection") because of her ferocity as a fighter, and she would fight to the death for any of her cubs, natural or adopted.

Raksha does not play a large role in the Mowgli stories, but occasionally offers her adopted son moral support.
