The best bet is that [[http://www.diggercomic.com/?p=437 Boneclaw Mother raised her herself]] and used sheer badass and CoolOldLady age granted wisdom to keep her from becoming like her mother.

* IfICantHaveYou: [[spoiler: Blood-Tail courted Ed when he was just a young skin-painter, but he didn't much appreciate the fact that she was only courting him because he was a surviving firstborn, which in hyena culture makes him a living good luck charm and status symbol. He fell for her mildly unstable but genuinely loving sister Blood-Eyes instead, so Blood-Tail manipulated her sister's instability until she posed an active danger to her daughter, forcing Ed's hand; she is to this day incredibly smug that her brother-in-law was made an {{Unperson}} (as the law of the tribe states must be the punishment for killing your spouse), but no one, besides no one, is actually in any way deluded about what really happened. Blood-Tail is not a popular lady.]]

Started in February, 2007. Ended on March 17th, 2011, to the tears of many; though the ending was written just as it had originally been planned, it left enough open questions that some felt it was abrupt. ''Digger'' won the HugoAward for Best Graphic Story in 2012 and the Mythopoeic Award for Adult Literature in 2013.

** Given that demons can eat shadows and seem to only partly exist in the universe's dimension, they are clearly very strange entities indeed.
