After saying goodbye to his mother and sisters, Kiwiba left and roamed until he was fully grown. He eventually cane to the pridelands and accidently found Zira while she was on patrol. (This is just before Simba returns to the Pridelands). She thought the young male handsome and strong, and seduced him. She told him how she needed a male around to protect her, not telling him that her motive was to make him father her cubs. They had almost a moon together and then when Scar was overthrown, Kiwiba fled due to the fire and was never seen again in the pridelands. He left, never to know that Zira had given birth to his son and daughter.
