The Lion King contests

The Sun Pride

Create some of the members of the Sun pride!

Note: I have changed a few things around so please take a look at that if you have yet to submit a character/ your character has not been accepted yet. 

Hello everyone! 

Recently I created my one and only Fursona, Reem, who is a founder of the Sun Pride alongside her twin brother Kopa. I'm holding this contest to find members for their little desert oasis pride. 

The rules are as follows: 

I. Rules

1. A maximum of 2 character submission per person; this is because I always envisioned the sun pride to be on the smaller side of things and as such I will at max choose eight or nine characters that I think would fit well with the story/theme I have in mind. 

2. Be Creative! I would like to see your most interesting designed lions with their interesting stories! You don't have to be as crazy detailed as I am when it comes to making their histories (I know I get a little too elaborate in this department), however, I would like more than just "Character X was born in the pridelands and then decided to join the sun pride." That's not to say they can't be from the pridelands, but I would like for you to put effort into your character submissions. You may either PM me the profile or simply comment it here on the contest!

Note: I say "lions" but really any animal that would make sense in the TLK universe is a welcome competitor!

3. With that in mind, I would like a detailed paragraph/explenation of how your lion came to be a part of the sun pride. This explanation will obviously depend on the character and what you have in mind for them, but as an example, your character may have needed medical assistance and they heard about Reem's ability and after they were treated they wanted to stay, etc....This is probably the most important portion of your submission.

4. The character story must tie in well with Reem's story. For example, in her history Reem is treated back to health by Nirmala, as such, your character can't be the one who supposedly cures her. 

5. To make the process easier, please read Reem's history (which I promise is not as long as most typical histories that I normally write.)

6. The last part of your submission is a render (doesn't have to be full body, and you are allowed to use bases) of your character(s) and their meeting either Reem or Kopa (depending again on how your character came to be a member of this pride.)

II. Prizes

Prizes! In the case of this contest, there is no first place, second place, etc... anyone who presents me with a good character that I would like to join the pride is a winner. As such, the prizes can vary. 

Anyone who's character is chosen will receive a render of their character interacting with either Reem or Kopa (or both!)

Additionally, winners will also have the option of either:

1. Receiving a render of any one of your characters (your choice) or

2. Receiving one design for you to turn into a character. (the designs are a surprise!)

The last two options are extra prizes; everyone will receive a render of their character with Reem and/or Kopa if they win. 

III. Summary

To summarize, you will be making three submissions per character. 

The first bit is the profile, as well thought out as you can make it.

The second is a detailed profile picture of the character you are entering.

The third is a render of your character with either Reem or Kopa. 

Good luck and have fun everyone!

History: Iana was born to two rouge lions. They were happy until one night when Iana was a cub, there was a really bad storm and Iana got separated from her parents. She never saw them again.

Iana grew up travelling since she wasn't apart of a pride. She got very good at being a solo hunter, mostly hunting rabbits and other small animals. She was so quiet that she could be right behind her prey and they wouldn't notice until too late.

Iana was now an adult and often felt lonely. On her travels she came to the Pridelands. Iana noticed a male lion her age and went to introduce herself to him, hoping she could join the pride here in the Pridelands, making sure he knew that she could help on hunts. The male was really nice and calls himself Kopa, but he told her that the Pridelands didn't need anymore lions.

Disappointed, Iana was going to leave. She had to accept that she would be alone. Before she left, Kopa mentioned that he and his sister Reem might need another member to join their Pride.

Kopa took Iana to Reem and their pride. On the way, kopa explained that he was visiting their parents in the Pridelands. Iana told him about the storm and how she hasn't seen her parents since.

When they got to the pride, two cubs ran right up to Kopa, rubbing against his legs and jumping excitedly to say hello. Kopa bent down and rubbed his face with both of them and asked the cubs if they knew where Reem was. The two cubs stopped, realising that Kopa wasn't alone. They suddenly got really shy. Kopa explained to them that Iana was his friend and they needed to talk to Reem. The cubs smiled at Iana and took her and Kopa to Reem.

Kopa explained to Reem that Iana had been alone most of her life and that she was a good hunter. Reem thought it over and accepted Iana into the pride.

Name: Jarvis ("Speaker man" in English)
Species: African lion
Gender: Male

Parents & siblings: Unknown
Mate: None
Cubs: None
Rank: Member of the guard

Personality: Very talkative and social, bit of a know-it-all, brave and slightly overly-confident.
Likes: Reem, Kopa, the pride, being on patrol, chatting, taking naps in the sun.
Dislikes: Water, lizards, arguing and solving things with violence.

Story: Jarvis was born to a small and rather poor pride as an only cub to his parents. When he was very young, most of his pride was wiped away in a massive flood and he was separated from his parents. After wandering for days searching for his family, Jarvis was found by a rogue male, who formally had lived in the Pridelands, by the name of Tojo, who took the little cub to his nest and gave him food and water to regain his strength. When Tojo heard about what had happened, he carefully explained to Jarvis that it would be very unlikely for him to find his parents alive, and offered to take him in and raise him as his own. It was in fact Tojo who gave him the name Jarvis, since he was a very chatty and social cub, who would just talk and talk, even when it was bedtime. They grew to love each other like father and son, they spent many happy days together and Tojo taught Jarvis all he needed to know about one day taking care of himself and how to fight and hunt.

And finally, when Jarvis was all grown up, Tojo told him it was time for him to go on and start a life of his own. Jarvis didn't want to leave his now elderly father, but understood his point - so, they bid farewell, and Jarvis headed out to start his own adventures. He traveled for several days, finally reaching the desert. After a while, Jarvis had gone from running to walking, he was starting to get dehydrated and the heat was taking it's toll, he looked ahead and saw a small oasis far up ahead - thinking it was just a mirage. Finally, his vision blurred and he collapsed unconscious to the sand. Jarvis was found by a group of lions from a close by pride, the very same oasis he had thought was just a mirage, and some time later he awoke there, being accompanied by the pride's rulers, Reem and Kopa, daughter and son of the king and queen of the Pridelands. He immidietaly had his eyes set on Reem, and after explaining his backstory and where he came from, he was offered by her and Kopa to stay if he wished to.

After spending a few days recovering in the Sun pride, Jarvis came to realize he actually really liked it there, and thanks to his social personality he made friends rather quickly. So, he decided to accept Reem and Kopa's offer and stay there, and it wasn't long before he was assigned in the pride's guard, along with a lion named Hajari. However, Jarvis soon noticed that - even though he wouldn't admit it - Hajari also had eyes on Reem, and would act flirty towards her. So, the two males grew rather competitive about the lionesses affection.

Relation to TLK: Was raised by Tojo, lives in a pride ruled by Simba and Nala's children.

(Cub designed/given by user Swashh)

Name: Sandro.
Name Origin: Italian.
Gender: Male.
Age: Cub (2-3 months).
Parent(s): Mother deceased, father 'unknown'.
Sibling(s): none.
Crush(es): ----
Mate(s): Too young, he's just a cub.
Cub(s): Too young, he's just a cub.
Friend(s): Kali and other cubs in the Sun Pride.
Pride(s): None, was found by Rafiki wondering around in the Pride Lands alone. He stayed at his baobab tree briefly. Currently, he lives at the Sun Pride after being accepted in by Reem.
Rank(s): Unfortunately, none yet since he is only a cub. Things are undecided until he becomes a teen when Reem and Kopa are able to assign him a duty in the pride.
Personality/Bio: Sandro is the most cutest, kind-hearted, shy, and gentle lion cub that you would have ever met. He is literally innocent and is not mischievous as most lion cubs are known to behave. He listens well and follow rules when being told. He stays pretty much out of trouble often and is more 'relaxed'. But when it comes to any adventures, he has no problems joining his friends along on a fun, playful journey not letting them down.

In the beginning, Sandro was found by Rafiki wondering alone in the Pride Lands with no adult lions around. He appeared to be lost and confused. Rafiki was on his way to pay King Simba and Queen Nala a visit, but had come across the little cub. He asked him what land he was from, who is his parents and pride. It was obvious that he is no Pride Lander due to his color, scent and markings. Sandro politely told the mandrill that he lost his mother someplace (she was killed by a stranger male lion who she refused to share her meal with) and do not know where his home is. Rafiki stopped everything and took the cub to his home, apologizing to King Simba and Queen Nala that he will have to be excused quickly from his visitation. Of course, they understood.

At Rafiki's tree, he gave the cub a full body check up making sure he has no hidden injuries and that his health is normal. Sandro surprisingly is fine! He just appeared to be very hungry and dehydrated, that is all. Rafiki had no food for a lion at his home (for what ever reason), so he decides to pay a visit at the Tree of Life to see if Nirmala has any thing for the cub to feed. Of course she did! She could not refuse anything to the poor abandoned little cub, she fed him what she had and gave him water on a large leaf, enough for a cub his size to drink. Sandro was hesitant at first being shy and it took him a while to understand that these animals are just helping him. Nirmala made a promise to Rafiki that she would look after him and make sure that he eats.

Days later, Sandro finally gained Nirmala's trust and began eating the food and water that was given. Nirmala was excited that the cub showed improvement and asked him many questions about himself and what not, starting out a friendly bond. Nirmala knows that she can not raise the cub as much as she would for him to stay, but she has other animals and busy tasks to attend. But she knows some one who would! Her good friend Reem. She paid the Sun Pride a visit with Sandro tagging along. She asked Reem politely if she can take him in her pride. She knows Reem and her lions will look after the cub strongly. Sandro again was nervous meeting Reem, but she made sure to make him feel as comfy as possible at her home. He really became eased up once he met the other cubs there around his same age. That was when Sandro's shy side became more friendly and playful. He made sure to thank Reem for giving him a chance and the more he grew, the more he became protective and loyal to her and her brother Kopa.

Kayin was born in the pridelands to two unkown lions who were pridelanders in Simba’s pride. At the same time Queen Nala had just given birth to two twins named Kopa and Reem and not long after another cub was born who was the daughter of Kula named Abelina

Kayin met the two young cubs around her age named Reem and Kopa they were son and daughter of King Simba and Queen Nala. There was also another cub named Abelina the daughter of Kula. Kula and her mother were best friends and wanted their cubs to have the same friendship they have. Kayin and Abelina got along well along with Kopa and Reem they were the best of friends and went on alot of adventures and discovered a lot of new things but that all changed when Reem’s nightmares had started and she had to be taken to Rafiki’s tree in order for Rafiki to cure Reem of the nightmares.

Soon Kayin had became a teen and Reem returned to the pridelands to help aid in search of her brother Kopa who went missing but this caused Reem's nightmares to turn up again and she experienced the most terrifying and draining nightmare that made Reem which left her unconscious Reem was then brought back to Rafiki's tree Nirmala a healer from the night pride had seen this happen before and began to cure her soon Reem got her strength back and her nightmares never returned.

Reem was ecstatic to learn her brother was safe when Kopa had came to visit her in the Tree of Life where Reem was healing Reem and Kopa soon left the pridelands and found an oasis to start their own pride called the sun pride.

Kayin started to grow beautifully and never forgot her childhood friends and the memories they shared and wanted to find the sun pride so she left her birth pride and started traveling.

After a lot of traveling Kayin had soon became a hyena’s prey after she had killed her own prey she fought the hyena off leaving her battered from the fight and left her starving. She traveled on some more and came across a small pride on the oasis and she hoped there was someone there that could heal her injured paw, cuts, and bruises maybe even spare some food and water and a place to stay.

A lioness had found her and took her back to the pride Kayin found out her name was Reem Kayin explained how she was badly battered after fighting a hyena off and that she lost her prey. After announcing who she was Reem mentioned she knew of a cub named Kayin in her cubhood and Kayin said that it was her this shocked Reem and a small happy reunion was held between Reem, Abelina, Kopa, and her she coulldn’t move around to much because of the injuries she got.

Kayin was then treated by Reem after getting settled in the pride. After awhile Kayin started to become healthy again and didn’t want to leave the pride so she had asked Kopa and Reem if she could stay and she was welcomed in warmly since Kayin felt safe and welcomed in the pride she became one if the huntresses in the pride.
