Biography

The Lion Guard

"The Harmattan"

While en route to the Tree of Life, the Lion Guard arrives at the first landmark of their journey: a waterfall in the Back Lands. With the help of Anga, the team's Keenest of Sight, they spot the next landmark, an iroko tree, in the distance.

Fahari, Jiona, and Makucha plot to attack the Tree of Life

The team starts toward the tree, only to be thwarted by Makucha, who demands that they leave his territory. He and his friends, Fahari and Jiona, attack the Lion Guard until a dust storm called a harmattan interrupts the fight. Anga uses her eyesight to guide the Lion Guard to a cave by the waterfall, but Makucha and his friends have already taken shelter there.

Makucha explains that a harmattan can last for weeks and that he does not want them staying in his territory for so long. He offers to guide them out of his territory. Together, the leopards and the Lion Guard venture out into the harmattan. They take shelter in a canyon, but a loose rock tumbles down toward Kion. Makucha shoves him out of the way, saving his life, much to the shock of Fahari and Jiona. Makucha merely claims that he had been trying to save himself.

Fahari fights Bunga and Fuli

After the rescue, the team moves on. Makucha draws his friends to the side and schemes to lead the Lion Guard off a cliff and force Makini to lead them to the Tree of Life ("The Tree of Life"). Makucha leads the Lion Guard to a canyon that ends in a cliff.

Ono warns his team members, who turn to face Makucha and his friends. A brief scuffle breaks out, with Anga rescuing Bunga from falling over the cliff. The winds begin to pick up, and Ono warns the Lion Guard to take shelter behind rocks. The leopards do not hear his warning and get blown away. An enraged Makucha resolves to follow the Lion Guard to the Tree of Life, but his friends refuse. Makucha then leaves to track the team on his own.

"Triumph of the Roar"

After being fetched by Smun, Fahari arrives at the Tree of Life, along with Jiona. Their friend, Makucha, is delighted to see them. The army then resolves to invade the Tree of Life and feast on its animals.

Fahari attacks the animals at the Tree of Life

Ullu warns the Night Pride about the army's attack, and they rush to the Tree of Life, only to be shut in by a giant rock pushed by Ora and his minions. With the Night Pride out of commission, the army attacks the animals at the Tree of Life. The Lion Guard arrives, having been warned by Ullu, and resolves to free the Night Pride from the army's trap.

Eventually, Kion, Bunga, and Rani arrive, and Kion uses the Roar of the Elders to defeat the villains. He then strikes the rock at the Tree of Life's entrance with lightning, destroying it and freeing the Night Pride. Finally, Kion sweeps Fahari and his allies into a tornado, which sends them far away from the Tree of Life.

Personality and traits

Like his friends, Makucha and Jiona, Fahari is arrogant and unfriendly. He is willing to fight for his territory, but backs down in the face of a challenge.
