Heh, this page had been sitting on my computer, almost finished, for 8 months. Finally I got to finish and upload it. :D

Ugh, this page took so long to finish... I couldn't decide how I could reveal the reason for the hyenas' banishment without giving any real spoilers about the "First King" comic. But now I know how I'll do it.

Beware the angry mommy!

I just keep throwing characters into this scene. :P First the hyena cubs, then Sarabi, then the adult hyenas, now Sarabi's mom... Who's next?

Ugh, that last panel. I had to use my Lion King figurines as reference. XD

Meet my new hyena characters: Zuwena, Mwamba and Munyiga. They were so hard to design! I wanted Zuwena to look pretty and ugly at the same time, and I wanted her and Mwamba to have some of Asante's features (because they are Asante's maternal grandparents). Munyiga is Banzai and Ed's father and it looks like he might be somehow related to Cheezi and Chungu too. :P

No, Taka! Stop thinking!

I had so much fun with this page. I hope it shows. :D The first panel was heavily referenced from screencaps from "The Lion King 2" and "The Lion Guard".

Yeah, I think "Ed" is just a nickname, so I gave him a ridiculously long "real" name. :P

Thando (the Selfish Lion) and Mohatu appear in a book called "The Brightest Star". Thando doesn't have a name in that book, and he's not said to have any relation to Mohatu. But I made him Mohatu's brother because their colors were pretty similar, and I named him Thando, meaning "love". He's such a loving great-uncle, isn't he?

And by the way, I spent way too much time thinking about whether to call him great-uncle or grand-uncle... XD


No, Thando is not going to be the villain of this story. He's too old and lazy for villainy. :P

Why did I make Ahadi's cousin the leader of the Lion Guard? Because my Ahadi doesn't have younger brothers. I'd imagine that if the ruler doesn't have younger siblings, the leadership of the Lion Guard is given to some other relative like cousin.

Jua (the yellow cub) and Hanja (the brown cub without head tuft) appear as adults in a comic called 'The Orphaned Birds'. They appear in just one panel, in the background, and they don't have names. So they're not very important... But I wanted to use them anyway. :P

Kahawa (the brown cub with head tuft) is a character I adopted from Ersalaa years ago. I made her Hanja's sister.

And now we get to the actual story! :D Keep in mind that this is just a fan story (even though Nala calls it the "real story"), I'm in no way claiming it to be anything else. I hate it when people take fan theories as canon and run around spreading lies...

Poor Kion still hasn't gotten over his fear of turning out like Scar...

Yes, Simba and Nala have SP-ish colors here. Why? Because I like those colors.

Subtle, Zuri. Very subtle. XD

So, what happened to Janja and his clan? I'm not sure. Maybe they left the Outlands in search of a better place to live? Maybe they died? Maybe they learned to respect the Circle of Life and were accepted into the Pride Lands? I don't know. Because I don't know how the Lion Guard series will end. :P

Omg, a new TLK fan comic! Because two unfinished comics just isn't enough. XD

So, what is this comic about? It tells about Mufasa and Scar's youth, mainly focusing on Scar. We'll also get to see a bit of teenage Kiara and Kion.

While I do like 'The Lion Guard' quite a lot, in my headcanon some of the Guard's adventures are mostly in Kion's imagination. :P

Ok, enjoy! :)
