Biography

Early life

Sabini lived in the Pride Lands. They were a member of Simba's pride.[1]

Encounter with Kopa

About a hundred times, Leo!
―Sabini, after Leo asks if he has told one of his family stories[src]

When Kopa was looking for his father, Simba, he ran into a group of Pride Landers, which included Sabini, Babu, Boga, Leo, Mega, and Ngawa. Leo asked the others if they had ever heard the story of how his great-grandfather had chased a herd of elephants, and Sabini teasingly accused him of wanting Simba's family tree. Later, Sabini laughed alongside the Pride Landers at Kopa's misinterpretation of family trees.[1]

Personality and traits

Sabini is blunt and straightforward, as they did not fall for Leo's boasting and even called him out for wanting Simba's family tree.[1]

Appearances

Trivia

  • Sabini's name means "seventy" in Swahili.[2]
  • Though Sabini is pictured, it is unknown whether they are the cub behind the tree, the cub laughing on their back, or the lioness resting in the grass. All other members (save Babu and Boga) are accounted for in the narrative.[1]
