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.

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.

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.

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') .

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 Other 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.
