Many years later on a hot, windy day it was announced to the brothers unsurprisingly that Mufasa, the older sibling would take the throne after their father. Enraged, Taka ran off, away from the Pride Lands in shock and disappointment. The anger was finally bursting from him after all the years of growing up in his brother’s shadow and never being able to impress his parents. All his life it was about Mufasa. All of the other lions complimented him on his beautiful, silky, and thick mane. He was built like a king—strong, large and confident in his abilities. Taka, on the other hand, was still learning.

On the inside, he was nowhere near as intelligent, but their father believed that the animals of the Pride Lands would respond much better to a ruler like Mufasa over Taka. Taka knew it would take his brother a long time to forgive him for what he had done.
