At their mothers last wish; they are travelling to another pride, far away, to meet up with their aunt and cousins and hope for a better life with what is left of their family.

Character Name: Aleron
Species: lion
Extra Pictures: ~
Personality: He is rather spoilt and ignorant, but can be very loving and forgiving too.
Brief History: Sadly, Aleron in a victim of the exotic animal trade.
He originally came from a scarce light coloured pride~ Exceptionally rare in the wild and highly priced in the animal trade industry (especially those with white fur).
Aleron's parents and other adult pride members were shot for their fur, while the cubs were caught to sell as exotic pets. Each of them were declawed and defanged, and then chained and displayed in tiny cages. The living conditions were horrific and all Alerons other siblings died from a combination of malnutrition, dehydration, infection and stress. Aleron however was very fortunate to be discovered and seized by an animal rescue organisation where he received treatment and proper care. Because he is defanged and has permanent damage to all four paws as a result of declawing, he can never return to the wild.
He instead lives under the care of a young human girl whose family volunteered to raise and care for him. Despite how cruel humans were to him in the past he has a loving attachment to his human "big sister" and is very protective of her and calm in her presence. They occasionally travel around together as part of a special program which educates and raises awareness of the terrible exotic animal trade situation, poaching, and teaches the benefits of lions in the wild.
Aleron's walking is very awkward, and sometimes painful which due to being declawed. His paws are heavily scarred from several surgeries to correct his mutated toes, prevent arthritic growths and make walking less painful.
Not surprisingly Aleron is never in a hurry to get any where, and much prefers a ride in the back of a vehicle to walking.
