the legend begins!
The Lion King. It is a tale of family, love, responsibility, betrayal, friendship, faith, hope, and coming of age; the very elements that we all must face in our own life adventures. But the story of the Pridelands did not end with Mufasa, Sarabi, Simba, Nala, Kiara, and Kovu. Africa's chronicle has continued on long after, with these great leaders looking on from the glittering evening stars. Africa's stories, the histories of these majestic lion prides, are still being written: here on Ulaya, the Lion King RPG.

in the circle, the circle of life

personal information
    PERSONALITY: Growing up in a war-like environment has made him ruthless, and opportunistic, and any aggression in either battle or in the defense of others is all fair play. He portrays himself as a fierce fighter who can hold his own against most lions and carries himself with a warrior’s grace. He is not arrogant, but his ever-present sneer never fully vanishes and many seem to assume that he is aggressive and dangerous. He is not naturally a loner, but since his mate’s death, he has all but closed himself off from the world. He is socially awkward and doesn't seem to interact well with others, making it difficult for him to understand others.

    He does not understand the concept of mercy, as he was never thought to understand anything other that killing. He is inclined to get eager at the sounds of battle and often seems indifferent to the reasons for his violence, as if war were a game, a pastime to him. But he does have a strong sense of companionship and often goes out of his way to seek others, but hesitates at the last minute and ends up moving on, as he believes he is not entitled to such luxuries. His heart is a lot softer than it seems, as he has a tendency to help others.


    Father; Hiko - Dead

    Mother; Sau – Dead

    Brother; Moto – Alive

    HISTORY: Heir to the Ridgepride, or rather, what’s left of it. He was born to Hiko and Sau, rulers of their pride and lived much of his life in the care of Javari, a seasoned veteran of war. His childhood was spent around training his body and honing his skills in combat, getting little time to be a cub. His parents bore another son, Moto, who was somewhat of an insurance policy in case Fume ever died in battle. Moto felt like nothing more than his brother’s escape coat, and so grew up despising his brother. During a turf war with a rivalling pride, Zuko met Asali, his future mate. The two where wed sometime later, much to Moto’s dismay.

    As young adults, the pair where expecting their first cub. But at the same time Moto organized an uprising within the pride, his jealousy finally clouding his judgement. A good chunk of the pride was wiped out, including his parents and mate. Enraged, Zuo slaughtered many in the search for his brother, but the coward had already fled. Now as an adult, Zuko still hunts his brother in revenge.

Dawn was breaking over the horizon, giving way to day and banishing the shadows of night. Adrenaline coursed through his veins, fuelling his quickening pace. Zuko throttled quickly through the undergrowth, a snarl plastered on his face. There was a cold morning breeze that ruffled his black mane, the vegetation around him swaying in the wind gently. His ears flicked with each sound of this new place, a land covered in more greenery than he had seen before. In the distance, a towering rock structure dominated the horizon, its exposed stone surface illuminated in a red hue of sunlight.

But Zuko had no time for such pleasant scenery, for the foul stench of his brother lay on the wind. His blood boiled and his heart pounded with the hatred that began to build. After so long, he would finally get to dig his claws into that traitorous brother of his….. 

He halted for a moment, another smell vaguely familiar. The wind around him suddenly picked up, forcing the male to close his eyes as dirt clashed against his face. Laughter came from behind him and as he turned, he was greeted with the sight of his mate, lying on the ground looking down at a pair of cubs playing. His eyes widened and upon seeing the black maned male, one of the cubs, a boy, came towards him and gripped his paw, smiling up at him with big red eyes, his eyes. He smiled at the cub, but a flash of white enveloped his vision.

The sounds of the grasslands where replaced by a storm, thunder flashing above him while rain drummed relentlessly against his being. The cub was gone and before him lay a battlefield. He breathed in sharply as his mate who had been lying happily before him suddenly had her back to him, her white coat covered in blood. Above her, the looming figure of his brother stared at him, a devil smile plastered on his face……

He awoke with a startle, fresh tears running down his furred cheeks. Zuko panted hard as he tried to regain his breath, but failed. He stood and walked to the cave entrance. Greeted with the sight of approaching dawn he gave a sigh of relief.
