Name: Baako (means "first born child" in Akan)
Age: Depends on use
Personality: Baako is a bit of a showoff and is always trying to prove that he's the best. He was too cocky back when he was a young adult, but after dating his mate Abuyu he calmed down a little because he started to feel adored at last.
Likes: Feeling appreciated, his mate Abuyu, cubs, hunting, playing fight
Dislikes: Feeling alone, when other lions say they're better than him
Story: Baako never met his father as he was a lone wanderer, but ever since he was a cub, he was very spoiled by his mother, he never had to do anything because she did everything to him and he lived quite well.
However, one day, after wandering too far, he ended up in a very dry, grayish territory. It wasn'tlong before the young lion was then surrounded by hungry hyenas who saw him as their dinner. Before they attacked, his mother found him and fought valiantly against the hyenas. She didn't resist the injuries and poor Baako felt heartbroken, blaming himself for his mother's death.
Baako's life was saved once again: he was found by another male with a scar on his face. He took the cub under his wig, feeling pity because he had just lost his mother and Scar knew what the pain was like.
Scar started to put Baako aside after the birth of Kovu, and Nuka always wanted to dispute with him to see who would receive attention. The disputes ended after Baako met a beautiful lioness named Abuyu and he instantly fell in love with her. He was always trying to impress her with his fighting and hunting skills but she wasn't too interested, which made him very sad. He learned that she was a calm, peaceful lioness and he opted for other ways to try to win her over, giving her flowers and going for walks with her.
After a while she started to fall for him and they finally became mates.
Relation to TLK: Raised by Scar, Nuka's rival.
