First Apparition Date: 1990 (2018 for my version of her)
Species: Lion (Panthera Leo)
Family: Sarabi (sister), Naanda (sister), Dwala (sister), Malka's father (older brother), the fastest of Scar's Lion Guard (former mate), Tojo (son), Simba (nephew), Mtoto (nephew), Malka (nephew)
Age/Generation: Elderly, born during Ahadi's reign.
Residence: Malka' s Pride (formely), Pride Lands
Appearance: Diku is a dark brown lioness with copper eyes, a dark red nose and dark ear rims.
Personality: She is a somewhat calm and bold lioness. She can be pretty demanding at times, but still remains a friendly pridesister.
Like And Dislikes: Being a sporty lioness, she never says no to joining a hunting party. She gets along perfectly well with her pridesisters. What was an horror to her though was when she had to clean up her son after his birds got productive on him. She still supported her son's relation with his feathery friends nonetheless, though it kind of worried her at times.
Fact About Her: She is a deleted character that was set to appear in The Lion King as one of Sarabi's sisters. It's just my interpretation of her. Also, she's the fastest huntress in the pride, though not as fast as a cheetah, that's for sure! (No wonder she and the fastest member of Scar's Lion Guard became mates, they got one thing in common. ;3 )
History: Diku was born in the Pride Land's neighboring pride, in the other side of the mountain. She was the third oldest in her litter. She arrived along with her sisters in the Pride Lands when Sarabi was betrothed to Mufasa, and later all ended up saying there.
With the fastest of Scar's Lion Guard, Diku had Tojo. But before Tojo's birth, Diku's mate got killed in an "accident" while he was on his duty. It saddened her to lose the bold lion, but she focused on raising her son.
Diku is currently an elderly lioness retired from hunting activities.
