Tofauti is a small jackal pup who lives in the Back Lands. He is an honorary member of the Nyuma Pride.
Tofauti is a cautious yet adventurous young jackal pup. Despite his past, he puts his faith in the Circle of Life.
When his family crossed paths with a rogue pride of lions in the Red Lands, Tofauti was told to run as fast he could into the Back Lands. Here, the Nyuma Pride prevented the rogue lions from entering, and took Tofauti back with them to their home. He quickly befriended the King's daughter, Vunja, and was later adopted by her parents.
Toufati is saved by the Nyuma Pride and later adopted by them.
