The Asphodel Mob was formed in 2002 by four evicted Whiskers and two wild rovers. The new group founded on land that belonged to the much bigger Balrog. Shortly after the group established the Balrog moved back to that part of the territory and chased out the smaller Asphodel meerkats. The group had one litter but the pups didn't survive. With no pups and bigger mobs around, the smaller Asphodel had a harder time surviving and establishing a territory. After an encounter Asphodel meerkats, a Whiskers, a Gattaca and Vivian rovers spent the night in a burrow together but departed ways the following morning. The males soon left to rove for better mating opportunities and the females slowly began to disapeared. The Asphodel Mob was lost. However one of the Whiskers females appeared at the Vivian and over time the members let her into the group.
The dominant female position was mostly taken by the oldest females. In this group Smithers was the oldest of the females however her niece Ugly Pup was only 28 days younger. The domiant female position was most likely taken by Smithers or Ugly Pup. Smithers disappeared before Ugly Pup with another female so Ugly Pup may have been the dominant female and evicted her. The Dominant male position was most likely taken by the oldest wild male.
