High School Teacher
In the first Canto, Dante encounters the leopard-who tries to stop him on his way, but isn't too worried about being effective. The leopard represents Self-indulgence.
The lion is fierce and threatening towards Dante and represents Violence.
The she-wolf is the worst. She represents Malice, and Dante is unable to go any further.
