Golden Age Origin

Simba, King of Beasts, was feared by man and creature! The only beasts who didn't fear him were the elephants who had a truce with his pride. He was the leader of his pack for many years, but after being challenged by a younger lion named Slita, his reign was in danger of ending. However, after a hunter attempted to kill Slita, Simba saved the young lion's life even though they were enemies. The young lion, however, was arrogant and still challenged Simba's rule. The lions fought and Simba was victorious. However, Simba realized his reign was at an end and left Slita to lead the pack while Simba took his family and walked off into the sunset.
