Personality: Imamu takes after Bamidele quite a lot: he's shy, anti-social, prefers peace over war. With his small size, he is easily frightened, especially by huge male lions whom he doesn't know. He is mostly alone, or with his friends, pretty scared of strangers, and is only pretty talkative around his friends. When around his friends, he tends to be an almost completely different lion. He acts very out-going, but still tends to be timid about adventures and going against the rules. He isn't very bold about things, always trying to stay on the safe path and not one to take many risks. He is loyal to his pride, and would do anything for it, so long as it stays within the rules. He'd be willing to die for those he's very attached to.

History: Imamu's parents gave birth to him, then abandoned him, since he was the runt and just another mouth to feed. Luckily enough, before he died, Nala found him, took him in, and gave him to Adanna to raise. Adanna wasn't too happy about it, but after a while she got used to him. He tended to spend more time around his 'uncle' Bamidele, as Adanna was always hunting. Bamidele taught him about The Circle of Life, The Great Kings Of The Past, and many other stories, which lead Imamu to meet Rafiki when he came to visit, and he became very interested in this kind of thing. When Adanna found out, she tried to make him tough and athletic, but he never took to it.
He soon enough met Akosua, Kato, Tendaji, and Rutendo, Kovu and Kiara's children. He had heard about what happened to Kiara, and refrained from talking about it. Rutendo immediatly became his friend, as well as Tendaji, but Akosua and Kato weren't as welcoming. They taunted him about his pale pelt, and despite Rutendo and Tendaji standing up for him, the bullying continued. Adanna found out and tried to help him toughen up and learn a few fighting moves, but they proved useless with Imamu's shy nature. Rutendo later in became his first crush, but he hid it, afriad that if he told her, it would ruin their friendship, or she wouldn't feel the same way.
Suddenly, out of no where, Simba and most of the pride, including Rutendo, Bamidele, and Sarabi, three of Imamu's friends. The pride was left without a leader, in which Kovu became the substitute, but he wasn't the same. Losing Kiara had taken it's toll, and he wasn't right in the head anymore. He became like Scar, the lands begining to spiral out of control. At the age of a teenager, Kovu handed the throne to Kato, who first cast out his own brother, Tendaji, then proceded to do the same with Kopa, a few other males, and finally, Imamu. He was driven into the Outlands, where everyday was a struggle. He gained a scar over his left eye after fighting with a rogue male over a scrap of meat. Pretty soon, Imamu wasn't even recognisible, as he became shaped by the wild.
A few years after Imamu had been cast out, he was traveling along, when he spotted a lioness. Knowing she would be competition for food, he attacked, but the lioness quickly overpowered him, and this is when he began to recognise her. After a small introduction, he found out she was Rutendo, his long lost friend. She brought hm back to Priderock, explaining what had happened recently. Soon, they found out they both liked eachother, and became maes, and once they finally arrived back home, Rutendo found out she was pregnant.
