Beautiful. I actually thought the Lion King was based off real life, and there was a "king lion" born in to the packs of lions. Daniel corrected me when we were at the zoo once and said the males just kill each other to be in charge. I like the Lion King better.
“Do you think I care if Aslan doomes me to death?” said the King. “That would be nothing, nothing at all.

It is as if the sun rose one day and were a black sun.” ― C.S. Lewis, The Last Battle
