Kovu and Kiara's cubs rough sketch by Catgirl08 Kovu and Kiara's cubs rough sketch by Catgirl08
Rough Sketch of Kovu and Kiara's cubs, Nafari and Zuri.

Description:
Nafari: is the eldest of the litter and is chosen to be the future King by Kovu. His pale fur and turquoise eye color comes from his grandmother, Nala's side of the family. Nafari looks more like Kovu's side of the family.
Personality/story: arrogant and prideful. Picks on Zuri and calls him names like "Wimpy cub." Also he tattle tells on Zuri a lot. Nafari has a best friend name Tamar. He tries to encourage her not to hang with Zuri because of his oddness.
Kovu highly favors Nafari and trains him to be King. This attention makes Nafari even more arrogant.

Zuri: is the younger of the litter and was named after his grandmother Zira. Zuri has tanner fur. His red eyes come from his grandmother. His features is of a mixture of both parents.
Personality/story: Zuri is an odd cub who loves to befriend insects and butterflies. He comes off as very rude and mean but in reality he's shy. He has a hard time making friends. Only cub he consider to be close to a friend was Tamar(Nafari's best friend). She was the only cub who never made fun of his weirdness. He doesn't like to play fight like other cubs. Always argues with Nafari.
Zuri doesn't get along with his father, Kovu and is hurt that he spends more time with Nafari. Zuri feels neglected and his rudeness grows because of the hurt. All he wanted is Kovu's approval. Zuri Loves his mother and adores his grandfather, Simba.
Simba often spends time with Zuri and shows him around the pridelands.

sorry that this description is LOOONG!

Nafari and Zuri belongs to me

They both jus look like they have some serious issues. Like an odd parody of Mufasa and Taka/Scar. I could easily see history repeating itself in these two brothers if something weren't done by the time they hit teen hood.

Yea, even though I feel like Zuri may have more issues than Nafari. Zuri's problem as a cub and a teenager is that he held everything in. He only told Simba how he truly feels and sometimes Kiara.

Parents should never choose favorites between their children...:(

It never ends well.:no:

Kovu doesn't intentionally do it on purpose but its more accidental. He loves both his sons equally but he can't relate to Zuri that much. Also Kovu hasn't fully changed as much as we think. Some of the influence of Zira is in him.
I'm going to explain more about Kovu's personality as a king and father on my next deviation.
But yes, it's wrong for parents to choose favorites.

I love the colors and I really can see the past almost repeating itself with their cubs. Poor Zuri. -smooses with luff-

Thanks :-)
I didn't want to make their colors exactly like their parents. And yea, it does seem like history will repeat itself. Still trying to develop the concept of this story and the characters.
