Characters from the right to the left:

Uru, a semi-canon character (my version of her). She'll become King Ahadi's mate and Mufasa and Scar's mother. But here she's not married to Ahadi yet.

Angu, my original character. Uru's littermate. He'll become Hasara's mate and Deni's father later. Right now he's happily single.

Kiume, my original character. Uru's other littermate. He's Hasidi's mate and will become Uma's father later.

Hasidi, my original character. She's Kiume's mate and will become Uma's mother later.


Yep, I felt like drawing Uru with her brothers (+ sister-in-law). Their parents were these two:
Never Growing Up by HydraCarina

Ubuhle and Falsafa were quite old when they had their last litter. They had had several litters of cubs before and they believed they would do just fine without any help from a pride. But because of their age, hunting and chasing off enemies became increasingly hard day by day. When Uru, Kiume and Angu were just adolescents, their mother got hurt in a hunting accident and passed away. Falsafa lost all the joy of living but still tried to be a good father to his cubs. He decided they should search for his older cubs and join their pride. But on the way there, he got weaker and weaker and eventually died of broken heart.

The cubs didn't know where to go without their father and got lost... and what was worse, Uru got separated from her brothers. Kiume and Angu assumed their sister had died and they continued their journey without her. They kept searching for their older siblings whom they had never even met and almost miraculously, they eventually found them. Meanwhile, Uru wandered into the Pride Lands... where she met Prince Ahadi. Ahadi's father, King Mohatu, offered to let her join his pride and she, thinking her brothers were dead, decided to stay in the Pride Lands. Uru and Ahadi became friends instantly and eventually fell in love.

A couple of years later, Kiume and Angu heard the news that the crown prince of the Pride Lands had gotten engaged to a former rogue lioness called Uru. O
verjoyed by the realization that their sister was alive, they immediately decided to go see her. The reunion was emotional and joyous. Mohatu invited Kiume, Angu and Kiume's mate Hasidi to join his pride, but they politely declined, as their life was elsewhere.

This story is very beautiful, and I like Uru's brothers, it is rare to see multiple litters of lions in real life, while the fandom prefers this scenario only as the "happy ending" of Kovu and Kiara's story, so it's nice to see you are using it for their ancestor Uru instead :)

By the way, Hasidi looks so cute, she seems a little shy ^_^

By the way, does the Lion Guard exist in Uru's original pride, or was it something special that only existed in the Pridelands? (If you plan to answer such questions in Decades of Denial or in another comic, just ignore it, I don't like spoilers and, most important, I don't want to take away your creativity by forcing an answer before the right time!).

Thank you! :D

I think the Guard thing only exists in the Pride Lands. Or maybe it exists in some other lands too... I haven't really thought about it.

I love that little diamond marking on your version of Uru. I never noticed it where she is shown in the comic... maybe I should go back and have another look. Also, the black stripes in Kiume´s mane. And I like the story you gave them.

I can definitely see Deni in her daddy. 

Lovely family here. Also no real big issue but on Kiume's post, I think you meant Uru's other littermate instead of another.

Yes, Deni looks a lot like him. :)

Oh yes, you're right!

How cute! I love all their expressions, especially Uru's and Angu's. The story is great too! Also, do you ever plan to tell what the siblings names and designs are or do you not care about that that much or will it be announced later?

I'm not really all that interested in their older siblings. But I might draw some of them at some point.
