Jasiri's Clan

I'm not worried, as long as we're with you.
―Wema to Jasiri

Wema is a female hyena cub.

When Wema and her clan are driven from their watering hole by a pride of lions known as the Outsiders, Jasiri goes to Kion, the son of Simba and Nala, for help. Upon meeting Kion, Wema and Tunu are fearful of him, and they continue to hide from him even after he returns the watering hole to the hyena clan.

Madoa plays with Wema and Tunu

When a pride of lions known as the Outsiders overtakes Wema and her clan's watering hole, Jasiri goes to her friend Kion for help. Upon arriving at the clan's hideaway, Kion sees Wema and Tunu playing with Jasiri's sister, Madoa. The two catch sight of Kion and hide, and refuse to emerge even after Kion comforts them. Madoa explains that Kion should not blame them for their behavior, for they have only ever known bad lions.

After Kion returns the watering hole to Wema's clan, Kion asks the cubs if they are still scared of him. To the amusement of Jasiri and Madoa, the cubs hide from him once more.

"Rescue in the Outlands"

In the Outlands, Jasiri plays with Wema and Tunu. Janja watches from afar and orders his clan to attack the trio. The clan launches their attack, and Jasiri desperately attempts to protect the cubs from harm. In the midst of the fight, Janja forces the three into an open steam vent, where lava is steadily rising to the surface. As the clan gathers round, preventing any attempt at escape, Jasiri's sister Madoa resolves to get Kion's help.

Janja traps Wema, Tunu, and Jasiri in a rising steam vent

Presently, the Lion Guard arrives and engages in a fight with the hyenas, and Janja and his clan are effectively steered away from the edge of the steam vent. With the hyenas out of the way, Kion orders Beshte to push a large rock into the lava flow, which allows Jasiri, Wema, and Tunu to clamber to safety.

Later, Jasiri thanks the Lion Guard for their help and expresses concern over how overzealous Janja and his clan had been. Kion blames the dry season for Janja's odd behavior, and the two groups depart, with Jasiri returning the cubs to their clan.

Physical appearance

Like the females of her clan, Wema has a purple tinge to her gray fur. She bears dark gray stripes along her back, and black ears and legs. The beginnings of a dark mane extends from her forehead to in-between her shoulder blades, and her tail is black with a pinkish-gray underside. The color of her underbelly matches the underside of her tail. Her eyes are blue tinged with purple.

Personality and traits

Wema is innocent and playful, though she harbors a deep-rooted fear of lions. Even after Kion saves Wema's clan from the Outsiders, Wema continues to react with fright to Kion's presence.
