Wilson was born in a country made entirely of triangles, when he was younger the triangles were very angular and quite frankly very aggressive. As time has progressed Wilson's angles have smoothed out to reflect his more mellowed nature.
Wilson the lion does not have any specialisms to offer other than being the Aura mascot. Wilson embodies who we are, the lion is a symbol of good, it's also a symbol for fidelity, it stands for loyalty to a friend, loyalty to a principle, loyalty to a duty and loyalty to a trust.
