During the ice ages, in which many animals left the northern lands to move on south, Rachel and her friend Jennifer were among those sloths that were moving on as well.
- "Who wouldn't want a family, I always say
Where've you been hiding?"
- ―Sid and Jennifer on saving Roshan and children.[src]
Both Jennifer and Rachel stopped at a number of mud pits, where they met a sloth named Sid, who carried a human baby named Roshan. All three sloths sat in a mud pit with the baby as Sid boasted about his supposed rescue of the baby from a pack of sabers, to which both Rachel and Jennifer fawned over the baby and Sid's alleged bravery. Sid then remarked how the baby needed his help at the time and expressed that he wished for one of his own, though none of them saw that the baby was slipping into the mud pit as Sid was talking. Once he sank in, the baby lobbed some mud at Sid, and Sid, chuckling crossly, moved to dry his face off with a mammoth trunk, seeing that it was the trunk of his fellow traveler, Manny, who angrily took the baby and left. Sid, intending to chase after Manny to get the baby back, told the two sloths to relax until he got back, and as he left, Jennifer remarked that, though Sid was not attractive, it was difficult to find a male that was dedicated to family, Rachel chiming in that all the sensitive ones were eaten.
- "Where's the kid?
The kid? Oh...where we're going, he can't follow, if you catch my innuendo.
What do you say the three of us jump into the gene pool and see what happens?
What do you say you go jump in a tar pit?"
- ―Sylvia to Sid[src] (deleted scene)
Jennifer and Rachel were drying themselves as they left the mud pits when Sid returned, intending to pick up where he left off. Jennifer flatly inquired where the baby was, with Sid replying that the baby couldn't follow them, as he intended to mate with both Jennifer and Rachel. Jennifer angrily called him off and left the scene as Rachel kneed Sid in the groin, remarking that she knew something was wrong with him.
Jennifer and Rachel left the scene, leaving Sid laying down on the ground in pain, remarking how much of a loser Sid was, as another sloth named Sylvia overheard them and hurried over to find Sid.
Personality and Traits
A slimly-built female sloth, Rachel had a thinner figure than most female sloths, notably Jennifer, but nonetheless had a big, round bottom that was shared for most female sloths. Rachel had a long crop of wavy blonde scalp hair and blue eyes, a light tan pelt with a light underbelly, a short, slight tail and light claws.
Smitten with the idea of dedicated, sensitive males, Rachel saw the desire to raise a family attractive in a potential husband, and was duped easily by Sid's fibs of heroism.
