Name: Usiku (means "night" in swahili)
Age: Depends on use
Species: African Lion
Personality: Usiku is a mysterious lioness; she prefers to be alone rather than with other lions. She has some trust issues because of the abuses and prejudices she suffered, but deep inside she's very lovely. Despite her trust issues she is a kind lioness and doesn't hesitate to help other animals when they need.
Bio: Usiku was born to two unknown lions who left her all alone after they saw her dark pelt. Because she is a melanistic lioness, and since her parents didn't know about melanism they simply thought she was a bad omen, and so poor Usiku was lost in the jungle all by herself.
A couple of cheetahs found her almost dead from hunger and thirst. They couldn't leave her there, so the couple decided to raise her as if she was their own cub. They taught her everything she needed to survive, but when she was just a teen, Ukisu saw both of her adoptive parents being killed by poachers. Fearing she would be the next one to be killed, she ran away.
Usiku tried hard to be accepted into a pride. But their kings were always afraid to let her in due to her dark pelt, so she decided to live as a rogue.
It was on one of these travels that she found Weusi, another rogue lioness rejected by their prides due to her albinism. They quickly became best friends and after some time Usiku saw herself falling for the only friend she's ever had. Usiku told her how she truly felt and she was happy to know Weusi felt the same way.
Usiku and Weusi returned to the Pridelands after Scar was defeated. King Simba accepted the two lionesses in his pride.
