Big Short Round was a baby elephant that in 1935 carried Short Round from Mayapore village to Pankot Palace. Because of their bond, Short Round suspected that the elephant could be the reincarnated form of his deceased brother Chu.
There during Scott and Jones' embrace, Big Short Round sprayed the pair with water from his trunk, much to Shorty's amusement.
