  1. Fa see, le sou, lee ah, hallah le la
    Fa see, le sou, lee ah, hallah le la
    Shadowland, the leaves have fallen
    The shadowed land, this was our home
    The river's dry, the ground has broken
    So I must go, now I must go


    It's just a couple of years after Simba cast out the 'Outlanders', including some innocent members of the pride. Forced to scratch a living off rocks and coming up with nothing, they all know that something has to give. Their 'pride' is too large, and cubs are starving. A decision is made, and the Outlanders agree to split up, one group stays in the Outlands while the other half is banished forever. But the real question came up to who; who would stay, and who would leave? The war within their own pride began, and ended with some outlanders finally giving and deciding to leave, with no ceremonious well travels, no remorse.

    And where the journey may lead me
    Let your prayers be my guide
    I cannot stay here, my family
    But I'll remember my pride


    While the outlanders had found peace with the Pridelanders, those who were cast out even from their own are still gone; no trace, no sign of where they could have ventured to. Until now. A new royal line was made, a new kingdom, was made in another place. Soon wind of this new Pride, this new royalty, spreads to the Pridelands.
    After a short visit, the Pridelanders soon realize that after casting out their kin, they had made a serious mistake, but never return.

    So, who is this new Pride? Where are they and how big of a kingdom do they actually have? Their start was tragic; along the long, long trek across deserts and vast plains, they had lost many cubs, and all the elders of their small pride. Until they found the perfect place; a place that all could call home. A large cliff side rock that opened up to the vast plains of the lands, many trees scattered around, and a river to drink from just a mile away from their densite. It was a utopia everyone had hoped for, and together, they made a life there, governing their kingdom.

    But this land wasn't without it's miseries; hunters began to seek out lions and kill them.But going back wasn't a choice, and they would not be run out of another home. Either fight, or flight.
    Pride Law (open)
    Do not kill needlessly
    Help those in need of dire help
    Investigate any crime
    Peace above all
    Hunt only when pride needs meals
    Do not brag about kills, the circle of life means life itself
    If proven guilty of murder, banishment will ensue. If found on the lands, death will be granted.

    History

    He was one of Mufasa's childhood friends as a young adult. While he didn't play a large part, he was happy being on the outskirts. He was Taka's friend too, and he mourned the deaths of both of his friends (Taka's when he became Scar, he didn't know Scar but he knew Taka). After Scar was killed, Simba himself banished all of those who seemed like they were on Scar's side. He was banished along with them after a few other Pridelanders had seen him hanging around Scar. But he'd been trying to talk Scar out of his craze, but since that he was banished.

    So he went to the Outlands with the other Outlands with his mate Aysi, who had been one of Scar's love interests. For a scarce few months they suffered. Aysi had been expecting but since the food shortage, she lost the litter. When Zira demanded that they leave, and attacked later, Akua and his mate decided to take their chances. Another good friend of his, whose first litter was born to him just a week before their second banishment, died from his wounds. The mother disappeared, and he and Aysi finally had a cub to care for, as the whole litter except the one they named Tayba had died.

    They were halfway through the Shadowlands when the group decided him and Aysi, for their steadfast and calm leadership along the journey to be the new king and queen. New laws were passed, and Aysi had her first biological cub, naming him K'wanza.

    History

    His parents were one of many who were banished by Simba to the Outlands. But after realizing that their group was way too large to survive, the Outlanders had no choice but to split up. But during a night attack by Zira, his father received a nasty wound that became infected, he died on their exile to other lands. Tayba was born in the middle of the Wastelands, which were between the Outlands and the Shadowlands. For many months, they traveled through the wilderness until they reached the outskirts of the Shadowlands. Almost a year had passed since their banishment's, and they'd finally made it to a utopia.

    A teenager by now, Tayba rejoiced in the birth of their first born cub, assuming that he would take his place as future king. But that was not to be, and Tayba remained future king. But he secretly plans to remedy that.

    History
    The firstborn son of the new royal family, K'wanza is the technical first in line to the throne, though he still must yield to the guidance of his older adoptive brother, Tayba, as he will be taking the throne due to his age instead of his bloodline. Having born within the Shadow Lands, only a month after the pride's arrival, the first to be born of the entire pride, K'wanza was cerrimonially named first, not only as the true first born of the royal family, but also as the first born of the pride in its new home, a symbol of hope and longevity of their new home. K'wanza has always had a kind heart deep down, even if he wont always show it to others, being bossy and cocky at times. Some time during the long migration, a palm nut vulture with severe memory loss was found, being collectively named Walio by the tribe. Ever since the birth of K'wanza, the bird has been the cub's guide, playmate, and guardian, fufilling a similar role to zazu in the pride lands (from the swahili word for lost 'waliopotea') .

    History
    The only 'history' that Walio knows of is laying on the ground for a long period of time before being found by a large wandering pride of lions. Ever since having been taken in, the bird would serve in whatever need nessisary, trying to be useful to the lions. Now, he serves as a playmate (not always the most glamourous job) and also as an advisor to K'wanza

    memories and other information to be filled in through the rp


    Other pride members are NPCs

    It's been just been a year since their banishment. They'd lost so many of their pride...so many. Thirst, exhaustion, the heat, snakes, cold, starvation...their chances of survival were depleting. Akua, a white lion who'd been banished with the many other Outlanders hated the Pridelanders, and their now ex-pride, for forcing them to make such a trek as this. To lose their cubs. So they continued on, still hoping, praying, that life was held around the bend.

    Then, on the last day of that year, they found the Shadowlands. They were saved; their new queen Aysi gave birth some days after to their first biological son. He symbolized the new life, hope...a new start. The pride rejoiced, celebrating the birth of the prince. Tayba, the adopted prince, couldn't be happier. It should have meant that the first born would be king after Akua, but Akua made it clear that Tayba would be his successor. They later celebrated the birth of a princess; their births were reason to look forward to the next sunrise than dread it.

  2. The morning was chilled and a light dew had settled over the land, casting the lightly swaying grasses to a slight shimmer as the morning breeze past them by. Within a den made up of two nature placed stone outcroppings that had collapsed in upon themselves, a pride of lions sleep in peace, security, and warmth. All but one lion was within their place, the foolish prince, K'wanza. At times, the advice of other cubs was to be taken with a grain of salt, as the royal advisor, a palm-nut vulture named Walio, had told the young prince a great many times. And now, a moist, cold lump of fur on top of the rocky outcroppings was paying the price. K'wanza sneezed slightly, pawing at his nose and snivelling before rolling over, trying to block the light of the rising sun, but to no avail. If only another hour he could have to pass in darkness.... With a sigh, he shifted once more to be laying upon his stomach, paws crossed in front of him as a resting place for his head.

    A faint rustling sounded behind the young prince as Walio began to wake, he stretching out his wings, lining up each and every feather perfectly to make sure that nothing was bent, out of place, or overly soaked from the dew before he hopped over in front of K'wanza.
    "Do you give up on your silly quest yet? No magical sky spirits will come to you in the night just because they saw that you slept outside in the cold. Now let us go back down to see if you can help your brother or father in anyway."

    "Go away, stupid bird...." was the only reply uttered by the cub, he batting at the feathered babysitter and shifting his body away from him. With a huff, Walio took off, flying around in a small circle around the den to make sure that he was awake, before soaring into the den to see how the rest of the pride was getting along this early in the morning.
     
  3. Tayba had been out near the border of the Wastelands for two days. He had become very upset that he'd been chosen as next to the throne; that was K'wansa's right, not his. Besides, he hated the idea of being the next king. It wasn't in his life plans and he certainly didn't want that kind of responsibility. But Akua had insisted on not arguing about it, he didn't have a choice in the matter. Tayba had run away because of it, but not forever.
    He was just had started to return to the Great Rocks.

    He was on his way when he noticed something in the grass; without thinking, he snuck closer to it. But he soon wished that he hadn't because one moment he was just being curious, and then his eyes stung horribly. He cried out loudly and sunk into the grass, writhing. Moving away fast was a spitting cobra, who'd been scared so bad he attacked. Poor Tayba suffered the price for it.
