Biography

The Lion Guard

"Return to the Pride Lands"

After the Outsiders join Simba's pride, Vitani forms her own Lion Guard. She chooses Kasi as the fastest member of her Guard. Not long after the prides merge, Kion's Lion Guard enters the Outlands. Vitani mistakes them for enemies and launches into battle against them. Kasi is chased by Azaad, but is able to dodge his attack. She is then chased by Fuli, but with Tazama's help, she finds a tree and jumps out of Fuli's reach. Kion is about to use the Roar of the Elders to finish off Vitani and her Guard when Kiara appears with Kovu and explains that the Outsiders have joined the Pride Landers. Though confused, Kion halts his attack, stopping the battle.

The next morning, the Lion Guard enters the Lair of the Lion Guard, only to find that Vitani and her Guard are already within. Both sides argue about who should be the Lion Guard, as both Vitani and Kion have the right to lead. Just then, Laini approaches, begging for help, and both Lion Guards rush off to assist her.

They follow Laini to where Thurston is stuck in a hole. The two Lion Guards argue over who should rescue Thurston, but Azaad advises Thurston to free himself. Kion comments that they must sort out their problems in order to avoid quarreling. Thurston suggests a competition to determine which team is better, and both Lion Guards agree to the challenge.

Kasi races against Fuli. Fuli allows Kasi to run ahead of her. When she's close to the finish line, Fuli easily runs past Kasi, resulting in Kasi's lost.

Personality

A screenshot of Kasi, reflecting her confident and determined nature

Much like that of her predecessor and former rival Fuli, Kasi is very confident, determined, and proud but also brave, loyal, and comradering. Kasi has great confidence in both herself and her skills, particularly her speed and agility. Like Fuli she enjoys being faster than her opponents and outpacing pursuers, showing great pride in both herself and her speed. This confidence, however, can also make her cocky and somewhat arrogant as well. She has a tendency to underestimate her opponents and overestimate her limits. This was shown when she clearly believed she could beat Fuli in the running contest easily, despite the fact that cheetahs are naturally far faster than lions. This overconfidence played a role in her losing the race. Kasi is also shown to be prideful of her membership in the Lion Guard. Even though Kion's guard had the mark of guard and Vitani's did not, Kasi (like her teammates) still refused to back down. Kasi in particular was quiet aggressive in her assertion of her team's superiority and was visibly angered by Kion's guard asserting otherwise.

Despite her flaws, Kasi is also a very determined and dutiful lioness as well. Though prideful she happily accepts help from her teammates and is greatful for their aid. She works well with her teammates and has formed a strong bong with them as well. Kasi also hates to disappoint or let her friends down. Despite her pride, when she underperforms, rather than make excuses for herself, Kasi instead feels shame for not living up to her expectations she holds for herself. When she lost to Fuli in the racing competition Kasi merely walked over to her team in a depressed manner, silently apologizing for costing them the second competition. This shows that Kasi is very loyal to her friends and is determined to support them any way she can, never wishing to fail them.
