The Lion Guard: The Rise of Scar

2017-08-04-01 24 24

Nyeusi is tasked by his leader, Shupavu, with spying on Rafiki and Makini

When Ushari requests that one of Shupavu's skinks follow Rafiki and Makini in order to find out if there is a way to speak to the bad Lions of the Past, Shupavu tasks Nyeusi with the job.

Nyeusi follows the two mandrills to the Lair of the Lion Guard, where Ushari takes over the task and thanks him and Shupavu for their assistance. Nyeusi then departs with Shupavu.

Later, Nyeusi spies on Kiara and Makini from a tree.

"The Scorpion's Sting"

Nyeusi attempts to take down the Lion Guard along with the rest of the Army of Scar. He is defeated when Kion uses the Roar of the Elders to clear a path out of Janja's den.

"Undercover Kinyonga"

In Janja's den, Shupavu notices Kinyonga's shadow on the wall and alerts Scar to the intruder. Ushari orders the skinks to pursue her, and Kinyonga races away with Shupavu and her minions hot on her tail. Nyeusi and the other skinks corner Kinyonga, but the Lion Guard arrives to fend them off just in time. The skinks bank a hasty retreat.

Physical appearance

Nyeusi is slender and long-bodied, with skin of a charcoal-gray hue. He has lighter gray patches on his back, neck and face, as well as a deep purple underbelly, which flows onto his legs and lightens to a rich crimson on his claws.

Personality and traits
