Name: Dumisa (African for 'Causes thunder')
Parents: Scar and a unknown lioness
Personality: Dumisa is socially akward, and rather jittery around strangers. He doesnt like meeting new lions and prefers to hide out on his own. His anti-social nature makes him labelled as a loner, but he craves having someone that will care and love him. When put under too much pressure, being around strangers or in crowds too much, he has what others call 'Panic fits' and he loses control of his body and mind for a few minutes. Only being able to think delirious thoughts. But when he isnt being shy, he loves listening and playing with others who know him well.
History: Dumisa was born near the end of Scars rein, he only met his father for a few brief minutes while Scar was exiling him and his mother. Dumisas mother fled with her young cub in her jaws, narrowily escaping the Hyenas who gave chase. The exhausted mother finnaly found a safe place, a small cave a coupel of miles away from the Pridelands. Or now known as the 'Shadowlands'.
Dumisa's mother joined a small pride, where she was able to care for a cub. That was untill she died of an unknown sickness, leaving Dumisa to the care of the pride. He grew up as a very jumpy cub, who tended to stay away from others. The lack of love directed towards him fueled his anti-sociablity.
By the time he was a teen, he began to have his 'Panic fits' which resulted in him isolating himself more, as the other lions his age mostly kept away from him. A few lions were kinder, they stayed by his side and got to know the normal half of him. If he was just aroudn them, he would act fine.
As Dumisa reached his adulthood, he chose to live seperetly from the pride. Still considered as a member, yet he slept ina cave some disdance away from them. One day, while he was walking through the savannah. he came across a Pride of very boisterous lions, he soon got stuck in the middle of them, and they didnt really take notice. Thats when one of his 'Panic fits' occured, he just dropped to the floor, his body writhering.
One of the lions, close to his age, spottted him. He grabbed him and carried him away from the crowd.The lion set him down, and Dumisa soon regained controll over himself.
The lions name was Gunju, he walked Dumisa back to his pride, apolagising for the other lions behaviour. Dumisa felt strangely at peace arounf Gunju, and he found himself asking him to stay with him at his cave. Gunju agreed, as he was bored of travelling with a bunch of rogues.
Awhile after that, Dumisa and Gunju began to get closer. And Dumisa found himself falling for Gunju, he didnt understand, they were both males! Wasnt it wrong? But then, when a thunder storm rained outside, Dumisa was freezing from the cold. Gunju kept him warm all through the night, it was then that the two confessed their feelings for each other. Their relationship wanst all smooth-sailing...They fell out numerous times..
