Chaka's Lecture by FablePaint Chaka's Lecture by FablePaint
Chaka was the once twin of Kiara (aka Shani), but was dropped from the story early in TLK2's production. There aren't any official concept art sketches of him, so I just combined the best parts of Mufasa and Simba to make this cubby. His colors include Nala's eyes, Kiara's belly and eye sockets, and equal parts Scar, Mufasa, and Simba main fur colors. His other name from TLK production was Fluffy, hence the fuzz.
So a screenshot of TLK2, in an alternate universe. Voila
Here Chaka is with his sister getting the same "everything the light touches" shpeel Simba once received as a cub on Pride Rock.
I like Lion King, what can I say?

*inspired by a thread on Lilymud discussing Simba's possible sons, Chaka/Tanabi/Kopa/"Fluffy"

I like how you didn't make him like kopa, that you gave him a new design.

So Simba and Nala have "lost" son, who is not in the movie?

actually guys ... take it from someone who does practically nothing but find out info about kopa, kopa was meant to be kiara but was cut because the lion king was given new directors and such. kiara was never going to have a twin brother or anything, that part is just fan made details. "chaka" was actually one of three names for kiara, the other two being shani and aisha, but aisha was replaced by a new name because it was already the name of the yellow ranger from mighty morphing power rangers tv series, aisha campbell. kopa was dropped from production because he was unrecognized by the new creators, becoming disowned.

as for those who are saying that kovu is scar's son, please pay more attention to the second movie. kovu, though the timeline is a little off, he was hand choosing by scar to become king and follow in his foot steps and nuka does state that scar was never his father, he just took him in.

also, tlk is no place to find real information about the characters. the best place to find proper information would be the lion king wikia, where it talks about everything and everyone. just because things can be changed does not mean that the site's are wrong. whenever someone edits a page, the staff check it over when they can get to it and change it if the information is wrong. i know, because i screwed up one of their pages before and they restored it the next day.

I always wondered about who Kovu's real father was. I've heard a lot of people say that other lions in the series were his father, because of similarities they share with him, such as the dark coat. But, one question about Vitani and Kovu, are they both the same age? They look like it and is Vitani really Scar's daughter?

vitani is not scar's daughter. she is the sister or the twin of kovu. yes, they are the same age, but none of the cubs in the second movie are related to scar in any way other than kiara, who is his niece. i think too many fans sit there and say that this cub is related to this lion and cause many people to be led to confusions and lies.

Yeah, well I wish Scar would have some kids.
