T-5 (Kachida female) had given birth to her first litter of two males and one female, fathered by T-2 (a dominant male). T-6, also known as Romeo, is one of them. Little is known about his childhood. T-8 (his sister) is a resident tigress of zones 6, 7, and 8, while T-7 (his brother) was relocated to Sariska Tiger Reserve as part of the restocking programme on February 23, 2011.

After separating from his mother, T-6 (Romeo) settled in zones 4 and 5, which included Aadi Dagar-Lakarda, Berda-Semli, Bakola, and Anatpura, where he met T-41, a young tigress (Laila). He was later seen mating with her in Semli and Berada valley. In 2011, Laila had her first litter of one female cub with T-41.


T-6 and the two subadult tigers engaged in a territorial fight in 2014. (T-75 and T-75). As a result of territorial disputes, both subadult tigers occupied his territory, forcing T-6 to relocate to the Chiroli area of the park.
