i just can't wait to be king
NICKNAME: Big Brother
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: He is of average size for his age and has an athletic build due to the constant movements that is required of him from living in a large forest. His fur is of a dark grey colour with a light tan shade in his underbelly. His left ear has two noticeable bite marks and his lower body carries the scar of a lion's claw, both of which originating from the same fight. His hair tuft and growing mane are messy and stick at odd angles, giving him an overall rugged look.
in the circle, the circle of life
Kuruka's strong personality is able to dominate most of the cubs and make the youngsters listen to him. If they misbehave, he enjoys carrying them to the river and throwing them in (when the river isn't flowing too strongly). Sometimes he would stick a cub in a dark hollow of a tree and leave him/her there for the night for more severe punishment. Other times, Kuruka likes to goof around with the cubs, often engaged with races with them across the forest floor or up a tree. The cubs love him and he would do anything to protect them from harm.
RELATIVES: Babajide - Grand-Uncle
HISTORY: Kuruka was the youngest of four brothers. They were born to a large pride residing in open grasslands, abundance in food and water. Kuruka's early life was as normal as any lion could hope for. Lots of cubs to play with, loving parents and plenty of opportunity to get into trouble. The pride was very close-knit with the females treating all the cubs as their own. Their pride leader consisted of his father and his two Uncles. The three large males ruled with compassion and wisdom.
Yet, the peaceful times did not last long. Their community was shattered when a large group of young rogues, males and females, demanded their pride to leave the lands so that they themselves could occupy it. Refusing, Kuruka's pride entered a long and gruelling war campaign with the rogues. Kuruka watched as one by one, his two Uncles fell. He watched as his aunties were defeated by the younger lions. Then eventually, his father, mother and finally his 3 brothers. Kuruka was only a cub then, but he was not spared in battle. His left ear was ripped to pieces and his body clawed mercilessly while trying to fend off an attacker mauling his brother. Kuruka was flung high into the air and landed in the heart of some thorn bushes, which saved his life. He fell into unconscienceness and when he awoke, everyone was gone. The cub stepped out onto the battle field and wept for his family and pridemates. It wasn't until he passed the bodies of the rogues that he realized who they were. The rogues belonged to a neighbouring pride, a bunch of youths turned rebellious against their own pride because of their desire for power mixed with the youthful perceptions of invincibility.
Something changed in Kuruka that day. It started off as a small thought of doubt, which boiled and grew into bitter beliefs. He had experienced first hand the greed of lions wanting power and control, and their desire for land. The only reason why Kuruka wandered the Afrian plains without family was because his own father and Uncles had wanted to keep control, to defend their belongings and authority. They were not that different to the rogues. In the end, it was the pride itself that had brought about their demise. And from that, Kuruka's beliefs that prides were dysfunctional had planted firmly in his mind and heart. He belonged to no pride. And he never will be. Prides were a breeding ground for death and sorrow.
Kuruka first came upon the forest when he was entering his adolescenthood. The first cub he met was Firo, a golden spotted cub. Like himself, Firo was also parentless. Kuruka had no doubt that Firo's history was due to family feud like himself. He agreed to take care of him. 'Like-lions should stick together,' Kuruka had told Firo. They made the forest their home and from then on, began taking in similarly orphaned cubs and adolescents.
Their Tawi Pride was living proof that children are the victims of pride wars. All of them were scarred, Kuruka believed, all of them outcast, like himself. Death had brought them all together.
