Zimwi? What's a Zimwi?

–Genet, Beware the Zimwi

Genet is a young female genet. She resides in the Pride Lands.


Genet has a sleek body covered in pale beige fur, with a black stripe running from her back to her forehead and ending with an arrow point. She has two medium ears with very pale yellow inner ears. She has long-lashed brown eyes and more black fur running down from the bottom of her eyes to her muzzle. Surrounding her black nose is a white fur, which is also present on her underbelly. Her body is dappled with black spots and a couple of stripes. Her legs and paws are light brown. She has a long tail, which is white and black.


Genet is a calm and collected genet, with a polite conduct. It is possible to break her composure with frightening stories, after which she will become daunted.


Fuli's New Family

As Fuli sings "My Own Way," Genet and two other genets scamper up a branch and watch as Fuli passes beneath it.

Bunga frightens Genet

Genet and two of her friends are on their way home, when they accidentally startle Ono. They look back and she apologises, and Beshte asks where they're going. She explains that they're on their way home, when Bunga tells them that it's a good idea since the Zimwi might get them. Genet questions what a Zimwi is, and, although Kion tells her it's nothing, Bunga proceeds to describe the Zimwi to her. She becomes visibly frightened, but even when Fuli and Kion try to warn Bunga, he continues speaking about the Zimwi. Eventually, Kion pushes him aside to assure her that there's nothing to worry about. Bunga tells her to go home and get a good night's sleep, since the Lion Guard is on duty, but she doesn't see that happening. As they leap into the tall grass, Bunga asks them to keep the Zimwi where it is should they encounter it, just until they get there. And with that, Genet and her friends hurriedly disappear.
