The Outsiders are a pride of lions that live in the Outlands. There are eight known members of the pride that are confirmed to be living, including their leader, Zira.


The pride was formed sometime after Simba defeated Scar he had no choice but to banish Zira and her family from the Pride Lands to the Outlands for defending Scar.

Named Members[]

Zira is the leader of the pride. She is a fully grown lioness with brown fur and a notch on one of her striped ears. Her angular eyes are red. She is the mother of Nuka, Vitani and Kovu and the mate of Scar. Zira is manipulative and cruel, claiming lions to be above all other creatures. She believes that lions should rule with an iron fist.

Vitani is a lioness cub with scruffy fur that is a dusty fulvous hue. Her fur is especially long on her head, forming a large tuft that falls towards her muzzle, though it is also considerably long on her cheeks. Her nose is deep pink and angular. The tuft at the end of her tail is brown. She is the daughter of Zira and Scar, and the sister of Nuka and Kovu.

Nuka is a teenage lion and the older brother of Vitani and Kovu. He is Zira and Scar's son. He is constantly itching for a fight, even if he can't handle the opponent but goes down fairly easy. Nuka also looks to his mother for nearly everything, and is very dependant on her. He is also somewhat of a coward when more intimidating foes approach him. He is also startled easily.

Kovu is the son of Zira, the adoptive father of Scar, and the younger brother of Nuka and Vitani. Unlike his mother, Kovu wishes to be friends with the Pride Landers, and does not necessarily hold any animosity towards them presently. He backs away from fights, though seemingly does so due to his unwillingness to cause or be involved in trouble.

Lioness is a lioness who used to be a member of the pride, but is now an Outsider. She has scruffy chamoisee fur and amber-red eyes that are rimmed with darker brown fur. A loyal member of the Outsiders, she obeys Zira without question, choosing not to listen to anyone else's reasoning. She is swift and quick to act, though when taking by surprise, is easily defeated.
