|“||Simba's Uncle: You remember what we said?|
Simba's Aunt: Yes, that we wanted to be proud of Simba!
Simba's uncle is a lion who lived during the reign of Mufasa. During this time, he had two sons with an unnamed mate.
Simba's uncle only appears twice throughout the story, both times standing proudly beside his mate as she nurses their two cubs. After Simba's unusual choir performance, Simba's uncle and his mate recount how they had hoped to be proud of Simba.
Simba's uncle is almost identical to Mufasa in both build and coloration. Like Mufasa, he is considerably large for a lion, with broad shoulders and a sturdy body. His muzzle is long, though his chin is scruffy, and his mane is full and somewhat disheveled. Simba's uncle has a pelt of deep gold, though his muzzle, paws, and underbelly are all pale yellow in color. His mane is a rich red with darker fur combing the tips, and his eyes are reddish-brown like Mufasa's. He appears to have passed down most of his traits to one of his sons, who shares his varying fur colors.
Simba's uncle's personality is unknown.
