Aleser Shahanga was born into a powerful family, his father being a wealthy, if somewhat corrupt, man. Aleser was educated in England and South Africa from the age of six, and returned home only on holidays. He never really knew his parents, so when they were killed in a plane accident, he could only mourn them distantly. He returned to Dar es Salaam and took control of his father's empire, moving smoothly into the role of industrialist. He discovered that his father was considerably more wealthy than he had first thought, and marvelled at the intricate web his father had woven across Tanzania.

The Sons Of Set had also discovered the late Jamal Shahanga's business empire and moved in, expecting the grieving son to be no match for them. They were mostly correct and managed to cause enough chaos in the business world so that Aleser lost most of his fortune; but they also chose to kill the son, and that was their mistake. Sebek was chosen to kill Aleser and struck while the Tanzanian was asleep.

Aleser woke from his sleep to discover the crocodile man above him. His eyes darted to his wife, Serafina, and knew they were both in a dire situation. Something inside of him snapped and instead of fleeing, he leapt at Sebek, transforming into the Savage Lion.

Sebek was surprised and faltered, so Aleser was able to beat him back and take his wife to safety in Johannesburg.

From the relative safety of South Africa, Aleser was able to rebuild his business empire and control the raging beast within him. He became Aleser Shahanga, head of the Shahanga Corporation; and he also became Alistair Savage, the Savage Lion: a mercenary and part-time vigilante. His fame became so wide spread throughout Africa that he was hand picked by the Witch Doctor to lead The Hunt and assist with the invasion of Azambia. Aleser agreed to join the Witch Doctor, because he realised that there needed to be someone or something to counter the expansion of the Sons Of Set.


The Savage Lion is an arrogant, powerful and sometimes bloodthirsty man who revels in his lion form. He believes that he is descended from a pure bloodline, the proof being that he now embodies the power and grace of the lion. His personality is exaggerated in his lion form, but even in his human form he exhibits arrogance and a tendency to be ruthless.

The one balance to this intense personality is his love for Serafina, who keeps him grounded. They have not yet had a child, but Aleser and Serafina have begun planning a family, and a possible retirement for the Savage Lion.


"A shadow is closing in over Africa, but they have forgotten that we best hunt at night."


The Savage Lion has all of the hallmarks of his namesake: razor sharp teeth and claws, a thick mane and protective pelt, heightened senses and the ability to put on bursts of speed. He is exceptionally strong and a hardened mercenary, with years of experience behind him. The Savage Lion is a formidable opponent and has been underestimated in the past, much to the opponent's peril.


The Savage Lion looks like a bipedal lion, with a thick prehensile tail, full mane and a sandy-brown pelt. He wears a dark grey body armour in battle, but otherwise goes barefoot. As Aleser, he appears as a handsome man with dark brown skin, littering brown eyes and a predatory smile. He wears business suits most of the time and is well known in the business world.
