He loves to go on adventures and likes getting into trouble. He has a tendancy to be grounded a lot. Despite always disobeying the rules, he is very fond of his mother and wouldn't trade her for the world- even though she was always mad with his behaviour.
After leaving the Pridelands for a while, Vitani met up with a random rouge and fell pregnant. Later returning to the Pridelands to give birth, she ended up raising her son- Zuberi, in the Pridelands alongside the other cubs of the Pridelands. Growing up without a father figure, Zuberi became really close to his mother, Vitani. He loved her more than any other in the world. As a young cub, Zuberi became quite close with his cousin, Prince Sudi and they would often go on adventures- usually leading to trouble. His mother always having to yell at him and ground him whenever he got the young Prince in trouble. However, Zuberi wasn't one to leave his friend when he needed him. One day, when Sudi hadn't returned to Pride Rock, Zuberi went out to look for him. When he came back, he noticed Kovu had brought him back. After asking what had happened, Zuberi was mad. He then got a dislike for Princess Zalika after she had decided to choose the other cubs as friends, over being close with her brother. That night Zuberi slept beside Sudi, and kept him company the whole day after that. As they became closer, Sudi found out he was to be the leader of the lion guard. Zuberi was clueless, so Sudi filled him in. That is when Sudi asked him if he wanted to be the bravest. Zuberi agreed, why not? He thought it would be good for him and help him not be so reckless. Telling the news to his mother, she was thrilled and trained him for if he needed to protect the Pridelands. He found the training painful, but it not only helped him with his strength and agility, it also formed an even closer bond with his mother.
