Welcome to the OUAN Wiki

The OUAN Site Wiki is a labor of love created by the current members of OUAN for the future members of OUAN. Our goal is to make the canon history of our site as easy to peruse and learn as possible for those of you who wish to join our family. Within you can find everything from species to characters to members to canon tales and so much more.

WE ARE IN BETA TESTING RIGHT NOW. ALTHOUGH 99% OF THE WIKI IS DONE, WE ARE STILL IN THE PROCESS OF FACT CHECKING, PROOFREADING, AND COMPLETING A FEW EXTRA PAGES AS WE REALIZE THAT WE NEED TO MAKE THEM. Please excuse our mess. If you find empty pages, we are working on filling them post haste. If you find conflicting information, we are working on making our facts align across pages and we would be happy to tell you which piece of conflicting information is correct. We apologize for any confusion, with luck Beta Testing will be over the and the Wiki will be 100% done shortly.

The Lion King is a 1994 animated feature film influenced by the Biblical tales of Joseph and Moses as well as Shakespeare’s Hamlet. It premiered to great popularity and spawned a number of sequels as well as a Broadway musical and television spin off.

Once Upon a Nightmare sought to integrate this tale by creating the species called Skinwalkers. These devout followers of the goddess of the Hunt chose to live in a manner similar to animals. They were given the ability to shapeshift, and many of them had a special affinity towards a certain kind of animal even if it was possible for them to shapeshift into others as well. The overall plot of the Lion King was maintained, although Once Upon a Nightmare picks up on the tale with Simba still living a cowardly, nomadic lifestyle while Scar tyrannically leads the Skinwalkers.

Canon Tale

Skinwalkers were once the followers of the Huntress. Long before the alliance of the kingdoms under King Arthur, the Skinwalkers had grown tired of human society. They begged the Huntress to allow them to live as the animals did, free of the constraints of human existence. She gifted them with a new life and a new form in the wilds of Xehacora where they established their own society founded very much on the same principles that governed the animals.

Mufasa led the Skinwalkers without incident until the birth of his heir caused his brother Scar’s jealousy to become unbearable. With the help of outcast members of the Skinwalker society, Scar plotted the death of his brother and exile of his nephew, Simba. Without outside interference, Scar was able to take control of the Skinwalkers’ lands and begin a tyrannical reign with seemingly no one strong enough to oppose him.

Controversy erupted shortly after Scar’s coup when a young man’s mother was murdered by one of Scar’s followers. When no justice was offered for Bambi or his mother, the boy’s father took many of the non-predatory Skinwalkers with him to the Yarrow to found a new Skinwalker society based on principles of peace and justice instead of the concept that only the strong survive.

Since the Bight, many have become wary of magic and its users. A cult calling itself Veritas and crying for magic to be purged from the land to 'free' Ga'leah and humanity from it's influence has begun to increase fears and the Pride Lands with its magical inhabitants may well prove too easy a target to ignore for long. While the Pride Lands was damaged severely in the Blight, it was never truly consumed and has proven to be habitable...for now.

Simba, now grown, left the Skinwalker society behind after he was convinced that he was the one responsible for the death of his father. Nala and others still loyal to Mufasa seek someone to lead them in taking back their society from the one who has ruined their idyllic existence. Scar continues to rain his tyranny down upon them without anyone strong enough or brave enough to openly oppose him.



  • Banzai - A hyena Skinwalker warrior from Ed's tribe. When the Blight took over his village Banzai migrated with Shenzi and the rest of her village to Pride Rock to align themselves with Taka/Scar and became members of his elite guard.
  • Ed - A mute hyena Skinwalker warrior with a gifted manner of perceiving the world, he has recently left the Pride Lands to locate his lost tribe. Shortly after the Blight took over he had a run in with Nala and has agreed to stay with her and help her guard her child.
  • Mufasa - The former Lion King, murdered by his brother, he now serves the goddess of death as a Reaper.
  • Nala - Childhood friend of Simba, Nala was raised in the Temple of the Huntress as an initiate to her Holy Order. Her life was destroyed when Simba was "killed" and has spent the rest of her life devoted to the Huntress. She was chosen by Taka to be a member of his harem as a "consort" and became impregnated by him three years ago.
  • Pumbaa - A naive and sensitive Skinwalker who does not live with the rest of their kind in the Pride Lands.
  • Rafiki - The Shaman of the Skinwalkers and formerly an official priest of the Huntress.
  • Sarabi - Mufasa's widow, she still resides within the Pride Lands but secretly opposes Scar.
  • Sarafina - Nala's mother and a member of the Skinwalkers in the Pride Lands. Three years ago she was the High Priestess of the Huntress in the Pride Lands when Nala left.
  • Scar/Taka - Mufasa's brother and murderer, he now tyrannically leads the Skinwalkers as their king. Chose Nala to be one of his harem under Zira in the year 1997 AH; has been sending mercenaries after Nala ever since. As aligned himself with Maleficent to keep his Pride safe from the Blight.
  • Shenzi - A Skinwalker warrior from a neighboring tribe of Banzai and Ed's, now in league with Scar. She is the matriarch of the Hyena tribe under Scar.
  • Simba - Son and heir of Mufasa, he witnessed his father's murder and has since self exiled himself from the Pride Lands in shame. Current location unknown; believed to be dead.
  • Timon - A wisecracking Skinwalker who does not live with the rest of their kind in the Pride Lands.
  • Zira - Scar's mate, a Skinwalker who hopes to help Scar rule the Pride Lands forever.
  • Zazu - A Skinwalker and former advisor to Mufasa.


With the destruction of the barrier around the capital of Xehacora and the end of the Blight, many in the country are now wary of magic and magic users. They will actively avoid magical places at all cost and tensions are rising between the humans and the remaining Skinwalkers that live in and around the Pride Lands.

Despite the lack of Maleficent Scar continues to terrorize the Pride Lands and those that remain. He still continues to search for his missing son and now that the Blight has been defeated has the resources available to send people out to find Nala and bring his heir home; the mother is optional. Meanwhile Nala continues to find allies to help free the Pride Lands from Scar's tyrrany and bring peace between the predator and prey skinwalkers.
