Jasiri's Clan, also known as The Hyena Resistance, is a clan of hyenas that live in the Outlands. It has at least twelve members, four of which are named. A member of the clan, Jasiri was featured in the episode Never Judge a Hyena by Its Spots and the clan itself first appeared in Lions of the Outlands. Unlike Janja and his clan, Jasiri's clan respects the Circle of Life and mainly partakes in it by scavenging from other predators' leftovers instead of eating Live animals.

Jasiri explains how most hyenas are good

Jasiri was the first member of the clan to be seen. When Kion lost his way into the Outlands, he came across the female hyena. While initially distrustful of her, they learned to trust one another and Kion learned that not all hyenas are bad like Janja and his clan and they have more in common then he suspected. Jasiri guided him through the Outlands back home but was attacked by Janja and his clan. Kion joined the fight and managed to drive them off by using the Roar of the Elders. The two then separated with Kion returning with the rest of the Lion Guard to the Pride Lands and her going back into the Outlands, presumably back to her clan's territory.

Kion is there to help

Jasiri made her way into the Pride Lands in order to ask Kion for help, as a pride of strange lions living in the Outlands had taken over her clan's watering hole, and refused to share it. Kion, thinking this was just a misunderstanding, followed her into the Outlands to Jasiri's territory, much to the surprise of her sister Madoa, who had her doubts about Kion and lions in general. The cubs of the clan, Wema and Tunu, are also afraid of lions, as they only know the pride that took over their watering hole. Kion assures them that he can convince the lions to give them their watering hole back and that they likely are unaware that good hyenas exist and thus it is just a misunderstanding.

The watering hole returned

Later, when Kion drives away Zira and the Outsiders, Jasiri's Clan are free to return to their watering hole. Madoa thanks Kion and reveals that she is now glad that Jasiri has a friend like him, and Jasiri comments that she's glad to have the entire Lion Guard as her friends. Although despite Kion's geniality, the pups are still shown to be afraid of Kion, which Jasiri comments, saying Kion should take it as a compliment for his ferocity.

Rescue in the Outlands

While looking for the jackals Janja, Cheezi, and Chungu come across Jasiri who informs the trio that they forgot to remark their turf for the Dry Season, and that it's part of her territory now. She allows them to pass through, but a fight breaks and Jasiri manages to drive them off.

Playing hide and seek

in a game of hiding and seek until she and the cubs get attacked by Janja's clan. Jasiri does her best to defends the cubs but the trio gets knocked into a lava geyser. Madoa who, unbeknownst to Janja, has seen everything that happened and runs off to seek the Lion Guard's assistance.

She makes it to Pride Lands to tell them that her sister and the cubs are in danger. The team heads off but it is difficult with some Tsetse flies blocking their path, so they ask Thruston to come with them. Once they make the Outlands, they find where Jasiri and the cubs are held and everyone starts to distract the hyenas, while Kion devises a plan. Beshte is able to push a stone slab into the lava geyser which allows the three to get out. Seeing that his plan has failed,

Being saved by The Lion Guard.

Janja is the last one to retreat with his clan back, deeper into the Outlands. When everyone is safe Jasiri admits that she is a little concerned over Janja's attack, seeing it as something more than a fight for territory, but Kion consults her saying that the heat of the dry season make some animals do crazy things. She and the pups thank their friends for the rescue and return home.

The Hyena Resistance

Jasiri arrives in the Pride Lands to see the guard handling more enemies than usual and after exchanging greetings. She learns from Kion that Scar has returned in the Outlands Volcano, seeing that her clan wasn't safe the cub offers for them to live in the Pride Lands but Jasiri had another idea. Rallying her whole clan Jasiri announces that they'll set up a resistance to help the Lion Guard but when clan seems hesitant to do so.

Jasiri tells her clan about "Kwetu Ni Kwetu"

She encourages them to stand up and defend their home with that they begin to spy on Scar's Army hearing that they're all heading back to Kilio Valley. Jasiri sent Madoa to inform the guard while they stopped Janja by causing a rock slide to block their path and they continue to stop the army's advances everytime which Kion thanks them as a big help

In the attempt to get rid of the resistance Scar had his minions feed Jasiri and her clan false information which is delivered to lion guard. Soon the resistance was attacked by Janja's clan, Reirei's Pack and  Kiburi's Float ​​​​​but they managed to hold them off until Kion and his friends arrive. After the army was blown off by the roar in defeat, except Janja who fell in the lava pit before being saved by Jasiri and ran off for the army, seeing that Scar now knows about her whole clan, he once again offers for them to live in the Pride Lands. But the clan decides to stay in their home knowing that Scar can't catch them if he can't find them as they go deeper into the Outlands to hide but will continue to aid the guard.
