Name: Attila (after the leader of the Huns)
Species: African lion
Story: Before Zira joined Scar and his followers and became the leader of the Outlanders, she lived a rather different life far from the Pride lands. She had a mate named Tanglemane, she loved him more than anyone ever, and together they had a son, whom they named Attila. As a cub Attila was already rather mischevious and wild, and loved doing things that were dangerous or forbidden. He had a close bond with his parents, his father especially, but when Tanglemane got ill from a spider bite and died shortly after, things changed radically. Both Attila and Zira were of course struck down with grief, Attila tried his best to support his mother even though he was completely broken as well, but he wanted to be there for his mother as much as he could. Zira, however, turned from a loving mother into a closed, distand and even a rather cold lioness, and it was almost like Attila didn't even know his mother anymore. He kept trying to make her talk about how she felt, but only got growling and shouting as a response. For Attila, who was now approaching his teens, this was a real tough time, he had to keep his own head together and also try to keep his mother on her feet, the two began to argue a lot and things between them got really negative. Confrontation after confrontation, this went on for a long time, and finally by the time had reached adulthood, Attila had had enough, and he left. He set off to live as a rogue, he had become a closed, reserved and black hearted lion who from then on decided he would never let anyone see that they got to him. After spending a good while as a loner, Attila came across another male lion about his age, called Ares. He was a rogue as well, in fact he had fled the Pride lands due to family dispute. The two lions started talking, and it turned out they had quite a bit in common, yet Attila still had trouble opening up to Ares as he had just met him. He kept to himself to the last point, but eventually he finally build up a trust for the young lion. Ares then revealed a plan that he had had for a long time in the making: He was going to take revenge on his family and take over Pride Rock, and now tried to convince Attila to join him as an ally. Attila wasn't at all sure about his motives, let alone the fact that he was used to being alone, but somehow, Ares eventually managed to get in his head, assuring him that he needed satisfaction of all the rough times he had been through in his youth, and poisoning his heart and mind with his revenge plans so that he finally agreed to it.
