Rugsteun is a lioness in my (Ladybernard's) fanfiction, Lion King 4: Upelelezi's Journey (Page).



Rugsteun has a brownish-orangish-red-colored main pelt, with her underbelly being tan in color. She has an Outlander nose, with a Pridelanders' claws, and a dark red tail-tuft. She has dark, almost black, brown ear-rims, and dark-tan eye rings. Rugsteun has a large, fluffy head-tuft, as well as dull reddish eyes, and colored toes.


Coming soon!



As a cub, Rugsteun is shown to be incredibly rude and proud and despises any and all lions from outside of her pride.


As an adult, Rugsteun doesn't change in the slightest, still being very, very rude to Upelelezi, all because she comes from another pride. This shames her mother, Kugusa, to some degree. To sum it up, Rugsteun is a republican.
