THIS IS JUST A SUMMARY – FULL STORY COMING SOON
Simbei was born into a healthy, thriving lion pride. When he was old enough, his mother brought him out of hiding along with his brother and sister to meet their King and the rest of the pride. The King was a very strong male, and quickly came to love the young cubs he had fathered. The cubs were raised with ease, having lots of food and nourishment, and curled up every night with full bellies. But as Simbei grew with age, the King was also affected by the passage of time. His muscles seemed to shrink, his skin becoming floppy, his voice becoming hoarser. Even his roars had an edge of strain in them.
A rogue male that had been stalking the pride for the last few months noted the King's weakness, and decided to strike. Simbei and his siblings were hidden while the others fought valiantly to protect their beloved King, but there wasn't anything they could do. It was the normal flow of life – the King would be replaced by a successor unrelated to him to prevent mixing like blood. Simbei was heartbroken as he watched his father fall, and the lionesses lowered to their bellies beneath the thundering roar of a male not too much older than Simbei.
Days went by, and luckily for Simbei and his siblings they were much too old to be destroyed by the new King. The normal custom is that new Kings destroy young cubs fathered by the previous King, but Simbei and his siblings could hold their own, and wouldn't let the new King anywhere near them. Instead, they tried to huddle near their mother, but even she seemed to be growing tense. She often swiped at Simbei, claiming she couldn't stand his scent or to look in his eyes; others also mentioned his uncanny resemblance to the old King. In nearly a week's time, even Simbei's siblings began to avoid him, until he ended up entirely alone.
A fight broke out between Simbei and the new King when he tried to woo Simbei's mother, claiming it was time to have cubs of his own. In the fight, Simbei's mother tried to pull her son off of the King, clawing and biting him viciously. Shocked, Simbei finally dropped the King, only to be chased off by his own mother. She was screaming wildly for him to never return, blood and tears smeared across her face. As Simbei ran, he could've sworn he even heard his mother refer to him with his father's name – the old King's name.
Now he roams alone, refusing to join another pride. He wouldn't allow himself to do what the new King of his pride has done to another young family.
