There is a debate that has been going on since I initiated the death of Moyo, which is... Did Moyo deserve to die? There seem to be four groups of people in this. 1.) People who loved Moyo and were sad to see him go, 2.) People who didn't like Moyo but also didn't approve of Taka's actions, 3.) People who didn't like him and think he deserved to die because of his past action, and 4.) the crazy group of people who simply wanted Moyo dead because he 'stole' Sarafina from Taka and think Taka is the shit regardless of how evil he is.

So here is my point of view on both characters, the murder, and all that stuff.

Let's start off with their personalities. You have Taka, who was a sweet cub but is allowing himself to be manipulated by a psycho hyena and is starting to turn on his own species and finally proved he is capable of murder. And as we know, when he turns into Scar he doesn't get better and in fact turns into a fully fledged psychotic lion who throws his brother off a cliff, tries to kill his nephew, and pretty much sets the hyenas loose in the Pride Lands causing what might as well be considered the Disney Holocaust. Moyo was abandoned by a cub, and was, similarly to Taka, raised by a manipulative character who only wanted power and didn't care how he got it. This lion adopted four cubs, Moyo included, and manipulated them into his little minions. After all, who's going to mess with a rogue pride of 4 fully grown male lions? It can be assumed that Moyo and the others were expected to do what he told them, which resulted in the murder of Dumaka, Kweli and Hazina, the starving of Juno, and the eventual murder of Naanda and Mfuasi(who was also one of the 'bad lions'). But here's where Moyo starts to differ positively from Taka... Rather than continuing to go along with his manipulator, Moyo finally feels the guilt is too much and actually starts to help the East Lander Lionesses. Eventually, he betrays the lion who raised him, and the lions he considered his brothers, and helped the lionesses escape to the Pride Lands. Though he did naively go along with Kuendesha's orders for the majority of his life, he did eventually break away and tried hard to redeem himself. Was he fully redeemed? No, of course not. It would take more than an escape to redeem him of all his old Pride's crimes, but he at least started trying to redeem himself. Even if it had taken a life time, or even if a life time wasn't enough, Moyo would have went to the grave trying to be a better lion than what he, and those he followed, was. Taka is not trying to be a better lion for anyone other than himself. And his version of a better lion is a, basically, a psychopath. He feels little to no remorse for his actions, and somehow feels that murder is a justified response towards someone he feels wronged him; all while being manipulated by Viccha.

That leads me into my next point... You all have sympathy for Taka in regards to him being manipulated by Viccha, but what about the sympathy for Moyo being manipulated by Kuendesha? In a sense, I created them to be similar... Except Taka is more like the dark side and Moyo is the light. They both were manipulated from a young age by their so called "friends", but only one broke away from their manipulator... That being Moyo. So how can you say "It doesn't excuse Moyo for what he did" when you turn around and say "Poor Taka, Viccha's done quite a number on him"?

Back to personalities for a second... Moyo's biggest flaw is that he was a bit of a coward in the beginning, and he is naive. He wants to believe people are good, and wants to believe he can trust them. He let Kuendesha run his life because he was, basically, his father and he wanted to trust him. And he followed Taka to the graveyard because he wanted to see the good in Taka for Sarafina. Moyo is a bit of a naive dolt, but his deepest nature is good, regardless of his past actions. Taka is sensitive and lacks confidence... Which, as a cub was endearing, but now that he's older it's manifested into bitterness and jealousy. As you can see from the occasional panel in my comic, he will occasionally revert back to his old self, but it is always taken over by the darkness within him.

Let's see...Next point... Uh, right, Sarafina! Regardless of what you guys think in regards to the subject of Sarafina, she loves Moyo. She was able to work with him to help the lionesses escape, forgive him in his part in the slaying of her parents(which he didn't participate in), and eventually escape with him. In doing all of this she fell for him. Call it stupid, call it unrealistic, or call it Stockholm syndrome, the fact of the matter is she chose MOYO not Taka. And you can't ask a person, or lioness in this matter, to love someone else. You can't fake love, you shouldn't fake love, and Sarafina wasn't going to fake love for Taka just because the fans wanted it that way XD Sorry guys! She, obviously, would still love Taka as her best friend, but Taka is selfish and doesn't give her that option. She made her decision, she loves Moyo, and that's the lion she wanted to spend the rest of her life with. So this whole "she'd be better with Taka" stuff is nonsense because Taka isn't Moyo, She doesn't love Taka, and Taka turns into a murdering bastard XD. Regardless of Moyo's past actions, Moyo would have made Sarafina happy in life. Taka could never give her that. And now thanks to Taka, Sarafina lost her mate, and her unborn cub(s) are fatherless.

And now to my final point... Everyone was all "Awwww" when Mfuasi and Akina hooked up and Mfuasi was like a daddy to little cubby Zira and stuff... But when it came to Sarafina loving Moyo everyone's like "WTF?! He's awful!" Guys! Mfuasi was way worse than Moyo! Granted, he had a cooler character design, and that silent guy thing going on, but fundamentally he was a way worse type of person(er, lion...). The only reason he even remotely started to change was because he refused to kill Zira, or turn Zira into Kuendesha. If it hadn't been for Zira, Mfuasi would have never had a chance to get close to Akina and still would have continued down the same path Kuendesha and Mnyama were going. Moyo was the only one that didn't take part in the actual murders... Kuendesha, Mfuasi, and Mnyama did. Moyo started to have second thoughts before they even attacked the East Landers, Mfuasi didn't. Moyo felt remorse instantly, Mfuasi didn't. Moyo started giving the lionesses extra food, all the lionesses, Mfuasi only snuck food to Akina and Zira. Moyo worked on the escape plan, Mfuasi was just getting jiggy with Akina. It wasn't until the end, when Zira and Akina's lives were in danger, that Mfuasi stood up against Mnyama and turned on his leaders, Moyo started rebelling from day one. Both Moyo and Mfuasi ended up being good guys, but Mfuasi was only a good guy because he didn't want to lose Akina and Zira. Moyo was a good guy because he wanted to change, and falling in love was Sarafina was a happy accident. And yet people are like "Mfuasi is awesome, but Moyo sucks, blahhh!"

So anything, in conclusion, regardless of what you think of him, Moyo was designed to basically be the Anti-Taka. The lion that Sarafina ends up loving instead, who changed from being a manipulated tool into something good while Taka remains manipulated and only gets worse. Moyo worked hard, and would have kept working hard to become a better lion. Taka did nothing noble. He didn't kill Moyo to avenge the East Landers or anything sappy like that. He killed Moyo because he didn't like that he was with Sarafina, knowing quite well that Sarafina still probably wouldn't love him afterward. Dislike Moyo all you want, but Taka is the real evil one in this comic. Taka's actions are not justifiable regardless of what you think of Moyo.

Anyway, that's my little rant. Realistically, Moyo is one of my least favorite characters I've created because I think he's a bit of a naive idiot and his character design is a bit boring, but he is not a bad guy. -shrug- He's definitely better, morally, than Taka.
