Phew...finally got the bastard done and I think I did a mostly decent job. It is kind of hard to pin down the colors of a real-life lion since they are a tawny - buff color and it constantly lightens/ darkens depending on lighting.

Fan-fiction: Before the Lion King
A lion of humble beginnings, Sekekama would be well known for his ferocious temper. Not even his own offspring were safe when his anger was ignited. Once he had killed one of his oldest sons, a young adolescent male who had been in the wrong place at the wrong time, the prince had died from his wounds. Another time he had injured one of his Northern bastards, later killing and eating the cub while his mothers and siblings looked on in horror.
This only adds to his list of enemies, but Sekekama fears nothing. The only thing that does concern him is when a severe drought strikes the land, forcing the pride to look elsewhere for food and water. This requires every lion to pull his or her weight, and his three oldest sons must now earn their keep. Zaketi and his brothers pass each test with flying colors, but this now makes them more of a threat to their sire. The day that Sekekama exiles his three eldest sons, it is the day the lions of the Outlands have waited for. Now Sekekama is weak and he is getting older with each passing season. His current princes are of smaller and weaker stock, Satau and her sons are strong and inherited their father’s large, muscular build. There is three of them and only one Sekekama.
The day of reckoning is coming.
Well I had this guy done for a while...but I may tweak his colors a bit more. Real lions have a simple color, tawny to buff, but the quality of color really changes depending on lighting. In low light they can look more grayish, in direct sunlight more golden. But they are like a creamy-tawny. Actually, he kind of looks like he could be the brother of Shida, the father of Wolf-Chalk
's character Hondo. VERY different personalities. You want a nasty lion? Sekekama fits the bill. A perfect role model for Scar's darkness.
As with Satau and Matsumi's bios, everything listed in this bio is actually true. Sekekama did indeed violently attack an adolescent male to the point that he died of his wounds. All because that male happened to be around Matsumi who was in heat (I don't think he was even old enough to be a threat). He also attacked Satau and her sisters and killed (and ate) one of their cubs...that he
had sired himself actually.
I may try Mufasa or Nala's father next.
