Rani is an adolescent lioness. She is the daughter of Sãhasí and Ãnanda, and the elder sister of Baliyo. She is also the mate of Kion, with whom she leads the Night Pride and rules the Tree of Life. When Kion and his Lion Guard attempt to enter the Tree of Life to seek healing, Rani and the Night Pride prevent them from doing so. Rani consults with her grandmother, Janna, who senses the Roar of the Elders' presence and allows the Lion Guard to enter her domain, a decision about which Rani is unhappy. Over the course of the Lion Guard's stay, Rani softens toward Kion and gradually draws closer to him. When Janna dies of old age, Rani is forced to succeed her as queen of the Tree of Life and finds herself depending on Kion for emotional support.
