Nafari and Zuri by Catgirl08 Nafari and Zuri by Catgirl08
This is another quick Adobe illustrator pic.
Nafari(means first born) and Zuri(means Handsome) are the sons of Kiara and Kovu. These are just my version of how they look. They both are from the same litter but Nafari came out first, Zuri the second, and their sister(Tameka) came out last.(debating should they even have a sister)

Nafari: Nafari is kind and very adventurous. He is chosen by his Father, Kovu to become the future King. But as Nafari grew, he became uninterested in ruling. His hobbies are exploring, fighting, hunting, hanging out with friends, and flirting. He gets along with everyone and doesn't tolerate rudeness. His best friend is Leena.
But Nafari is no mary sue, he was often mean to his brother.
As a cub he often teases and make fun of his brother, Zuri for being different. He makes fun of the fact that Zuri considers butterflies and insects as his friends. Also yells at Zuri when he's rude to Leena. He loves his brother but felt like he's socially inept and just plain strange for a lion.
As Nafari got older he changes his attitude towards Zuri. He tries to help his brother through his emotional struggles. Also Nafari gives up betrothal to Zuri. He later realizes Zuri would be the better King.

Zuri: Zuri is a misunderstood lion and because of this He becomes very rude and ruthless. It's all because he's been hurting inside for most of his life. Kovu never seems to want to spend time with him, and envy's the relationship of Nafari and his father. All he wanted was his father's attention and because he never got that as a cub it hurt him.
Zuri often yells and seem disrespectful towards his father. He loves his Grandfather Simba, who teaches him about the pridelands. In Zuri's eyes Simba was more of a father. Zuri is responsible and respects all the creatures to the point he don't even want to hurt a bird or a butterfly. He tries to avoid trouble. He doesn't seem to get a long with Nafari and can't stand Leena. His sister Tameka annoys him too because she always wants to play fight.
After a huge argument with his father, Zuri runs away because he felt like he doesn't belong to priderock. He becomes a rouge. During that time his personality changes as he met some good friends a Caracal(another big cat) and Horse mixed Zebra. Zuri ran into Leena while hunting. He use to can't stand her, but he started to like her. He decides to come back to priderock and becomes King.

These guys are so handsome and I adore their colors. They look like Kovu and Kiara without being clones. ^_^
