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.

i just can't wait to be king
general information
    NAME: Nyota
    NICKNAME: ---
    GENDER: Female
    SPECIES: Lion
    RANKING: Member
    AGE: Cub

    PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: : Nyota has a healthy and rather slender, with a tad bit of muscle, build, which is pretty good for running but for fighting not so much. She is a young cub of average height and basically nothing that special about her. Nyota’s fur is darker than most pridelanders, instead of it being the ‘usual’ light cream sort of color her fur is more of darker tan. She has a lighter tan underbelly and paws. Nyota has a mark on her forehead that looks kind of like a star, and it’s basically the most favoured part of her appearance in her opinion. Her eyes are a dark yellow.
in the circle, the circle of life
personal information
    PERSONALITY: Nyota is a well behaved female who believes in only speaking when spoken to. She follows the rules religiously and does not like to associate herself with rouges or those who don’t follow rules, because of her silent behaviour she is anti-social and rarely makes friends . Nyota is pretty independent for a cub, but this independence often puts her in a tight spot since she tends to do everything alone.

    Though she follows the rules Nyota can be easily persuaded into doing something if you use the right persuasion, like questioning her independence for one. Before her mother left her she use to be more outgoing and mellow but since then she has kept that side of her locked away. She has a great memory and is almost the complete opposite of her brother Kuvuka in personality.

    Kuvuka- brother
    Giza- father
    Kuwinda- mother

    HISTORY: Nyota's history starts at the time when her mother Kuwinda, an outlander, left her pride and family to join the pridelands. Her mother left the outlands because she couldn’t stand living in those deplorable conditions so she decided to see what living in a more prosperous land was like. Not too long after joining Kuwinda met Giza, who was a born pridelander, and the two immediately took a liking to each other. With each passing day the two grew closer and eventually mated. Kuwinda then gave birth to two cubs Nyota, the oldest, and Kuvuka, the youngest. There life seemed to be perfect, but soon Kuwinda found herself missing the outlands. Sure the place was low on resources and all, but it was her home and she missed it.

    Kuwinda left the pridelands and returned home taking her son, Kuvuka with her and leaving Nyota with her father. No one really knows why she left with only Kuvuka, without consulting their father first, but everyone just assumed that she favoured the male in contrast to his sister. Giza was devasted by her leaving but Nyota seemed unfazed by it. The only this that did devastate her was the fact that her brother was gone.

    Nyota was taken in by another female of the pride. Nyota doesn’t really see much of her father due to him being very busy. On the outside all of these events seem to have no affect on her but looks can be deceiving, because somewhere deep down inside she is hurting from the loss of her brother and from no longer being an important factor in her fathers life.

    NAME/ALIAS: Mid/ Midnightsummer
    ROLEPLAY EXPERIENCE: a long time, lost count so I don’t know how long exactly.
    HOW YOU FOUND US: good ole’ google
    OTHER: her relatives are characters I plan to make in the future or something like that.

The sun slowly rose over the horizon as a young lion cub stirred from her slumber. Half a sleep Nyota raised her head, only to see the body of another lioness blocking her view. Slowly and carefully, so she would not wake anyone else, she got up and climbed over the sleeping lion, as the lioness was blocking the entrance. Carefully....Carefully she kept whispering to herself mentally, Nyota fell onto the ground on the other side of the lioness with a loud thump, which caused the other to stir a bit before going back to sleep to which the young lion breathed a sigh of relief. She hated to think of what a scolding she'd get if she managed to wake her.

Walking out of the den she placed her self on the ledge of a nearby rock. She gazed out onto the land, from near and far lions and lionesses were slowly waking. She was still tired but she knew that even if she tried she would not go back to sleep. Nyota continued her gaze over the, seeable, prideland and soon gazed out beyond the horizon, she soon found herself wondering just what was beyond those color-full mixtures of red and orange.
