Ãnanda is a lioness introduced in season 3 of The Lion Guard. Rani's and Baliyo's deceased mother, she makes her debut in the episode The Tree of Life. She lives on in spirit alongside her mate Sãhasí.
Role in the series
After Rani tells the Night Pride about Kion using the Roar of the Elders along with the Lion Guard and they argue about them, she tells them to give her a moment in which Surak agrees. Rani then walks up the hill to talk to her deceased parents Ãnanda and Sãhasí in the sky to which she needs advice from them telling them that her grandmother Janna wants her to welcome Kion to the Tree of Life to which Rani is unsure if she should welcome them or not. Ãnanda tells Rani that Queen Janna wouldn't ask her daughter to let them in if they were being aggressive to which she tells Rani that she will be queen as well. After talking, Rani then follows the advice of her deceased parents.
Sãhasí is Ãnanda's mate. They have both completed their journey through the Circle of Life. They both give Rani advice about what her grandmother Janna would do if she would allow the Lion Guard to enter the Tree of Life.
Rani is Ãnanda's daughter. Rani gets advice from her parents and learns how to be a good princess. Even though she has already completed her journey through the Circle of life, Ãnanda still cares for her daughter.
Baliyo is Ãnanda's son. Although the two didn't interact, she still cares about him.
Surak is Ãnanda's brother-in-law although the two were not shown interacting.
Janna is Ãnanda's mother-in-law, although the two weren't shown interacting. She thinks that the queen is very wise and that Rani should listen to her.
Kion is Ãnanda's son in law, although the two didn't interact.
Nirmala and Ãnanda were good friends, though she has never interacted with her.
- It's unknown how Ãnanda had died alongside her mate. Since Janna, (who was clearly older than Rani's parents) were still alive by the time of their debut episode, it's likely Ãnanda died from circumstances that did not involve age.
