Mufasa isn't Kion's only grandfather by Panther85 Mufasa isn't Kion's only grandfather by Panther85
Commission for :iconhey101hey: of a young Sarafina with Nala's father. He wrote a little story along with it.

___________________________________________________

It was a lazy afternoon in the Pride Lands. The lionesses did their morning hunt and Simba was napping alongside Nala. Little Nala woke up, and not wanting to wake him up she took a little walk and saw her mom and got a bit curious.

Nala: Mom, how did you know that dad was the one for you?

Sarafina: Well, when I was your age I normally hung out with Mufasa and Sarabi. One day that changed as your father gathered the courage to talk to me. He challenged me to a race! We had so much fun that we forgot who won. Later on that day I foolishly went to the watering hole on my own. On the way back I tripped and injured myself. I coudn't make it back on my own. Your father noticed I wasn't back by early evening. He wanted to search for me but the older lions for forbade it, telling him to wait for morning. It was too dangerous they said! He disobeyed them and snuck out to find me. When he found me I couldn't walk on my own. He put me on his back. He was just a cub, but with all his strength, stamina and courage he got me back to pride rock safely.

He was punished, but in return he saved my life and won my heart.

___________________________________________________

This is hey101hey version of Nala's dad, he asked me to design him combining Nala's and Kion's traits and colors, so I tried to make him unique but similar enough to Kion on sight to keep it consistent with the episode in which his cave painting was mistaken with Kion.

I still wish they made Sarafina's mates' hair brown or some other colour and not just red haired just like Simba, Kion and Mufasa.. And this is more interesting considering in reality scientific studies found out that lionesses are more attracted to darker maned lions LOL

Actually, in the Broadway show, Mufasa has a dark bi-coloured mane and Scar has a blonde mane. Simba has a reddish bi-coloured mane.

Aunque sería bueno que también le preguntes a hey101hey quien fue el que me dio la idea del diseño del papá de Nala.

Thank you! ^^ well, it's technically the version of my friend hey101hey who was the commissioner. He gave me the instruction to design him mixing Kion and Nala's traits, with that in mind I started playing with colors and he came out this way. I love how he turned out too :D

And with your perfect art, this is really great piece!

Wow, you made my day. You just made it! I love your drawing and your fanfic. It's really heartwarming and sweet.
I have created an oc called Mugabe- he's Sarafina's husband and Nala's dad. Your description of his personality is just like Mugabe's! But hey, don't worry! that was just a coincidence!:D (Big Grin)

Yes, you did write the story, I acknowledge that. But it is common to have more than one braveheart to exist in the TLK universe. it's not like one type of personality is restricted to one person only. There isn't even one type of personality! And yes, you wrote the story. I like it. But all I said was it's kinda like my version of Nala's dad.

hey101hey wasn't talking about copying or even the similarities, he was simply saying that the fanfic was his idea and not mine. I just did the art ^^

As for similarities, of course there's always going be some. Not a problem with that either :)

I do wonder if he's actually deceased. Death has been talked about and seen in the show, along with Mufasa as a spirit. But just a drawing of him hasn't really confirmed anything..

Cute drawing! and it's good to see something different :)
