Update 20.07.2019. Added a watermark being fed up with art thieves.

Update 29.06.2018: changed the title and description because I'm still not happy with my theory and keep changing it.=P (Razz) 

"I felt it won't be easy... Now I see it's really not! But there is no other choice. He must serve the Pridelands and protect them!"

Duchess Zuri watches how General Kion leaves for his evening patrol.

General? I kinda had a feeling that the "Lion Guard' was leading up to something more, I just couldn't tell what; I mean he's the son of the King: there was bound to be something more waiting for him, and maybe even the other members of the "Lion Guard."

Well, you know there are ranks and posts in any army. So in my theory Kion's rank is general or I would say the General of the Army (it's the highest rank in the army of my country same as in yours) or General Field Marshal (now its not so popular in the world). And his post is the Head Commander, the Head of The Headquarters and the Defense Minister in one while the King/Queen is the Supreme Commander. Here in Ukraine we mostly call all types of generals (Major General, Lieutenant General and others) just generals when it is not some official event. What's more he's still the Prince, Queen's advisor and second in line until Kiara's son (in my theory she had a son) is born.

Thank you!
I think both of the girls are cute and both of them look nice with Kion.

I find it very interesting that you are giving them human titles. I don't know why but I've just never seen the word duchess in the Lion King so it stands out when you use it.

I just thought there should be some other titles at least in my theory. It looks more like there is a real monarchy in the Pridelands this way and I enjoy it.

This is stunning inn just how vibrant and detailed this piece is. I'm actually really glad that your interpretation of an older Zuri is that she's grown more mature and considerate as she's grown. Just the way this is presented is an utter joy to see.

I love their titles! It's nice to see other parts of leadership other than king and queen.
This piece is so beautiful! I love the perspective!
