Kanu was born in the group of rogues. He could run really fast and almost always won if there was a race between him and his friends. He was not only faster than other cubs, he was also faster than adult lions. He was praised for his talent and had a good life. Though, when he was a teen ager, their group was attacked by humans and only a few of them survived, Kanu being one of them. He lost his parents and siblings but luckily, his friends were safe.
Their leader, Zuberi, decided to settle in a place instead of travelling as rogues. They arrived at a land and named it the 'Pride Lands'. Zuberi made himself the first ever king of the Pride Lands. Though, the hyenas living at the Pride Lands created a lot of problems and this made it hard for Zuberi to control everything. He then decided to form a guard called 'The Lion Guard'. Zuberi's brother Askari who was a friend of Jelani, was made the fiercest of the guard and being a brave lion, Kanu was made the strongest. Kanu's other friends were given other different roles in the guard. Kanu and his friends kept the hyena clan in control and defended the Pride Lands.
Kanu enjoyed protecting the pride lands.Though, unfortunately, his duties came to an end when Askari fell ill of a fatal disease and passed away. Kanu was heart broken but managed to recover quickly. After Mohatu became king, he fell in love with a lioness from the pride and became mates. A little before Mohatu's son Amani was born, Saka fathered a female cub.
