Having been raised by her ruthless mother Reirei, Kijana is ferocious and scheming. She takes no shame in harming or tricking other animals, and works well with her brother, Dogo.
Kijana is a small, compact jackal with large ears and thin legs. Her pelt is light brown, while her chest, muzzle, and legs are paler in color. She has a long dark stripe that runs up her back and ends in a tuft over her eyes, which are teal.
Role in the series
Kijana and her family attack a herd of zebras. While Kijana's mother, Reirei, leads an attack against the bulk of the herd, Kijana and her brother, Dogo, separate a young colt named Hamu from the rest of the zebras. While Kijana hides in the brush, Dogo feigns friendliness to Hamu and convinces the young colt to stop running away. As Dogo continues to sweet-talk Hamu, Kijana sneaks up from behind, but is disrupted by Ono, who warns Hamu of the danger. Just then, Bunga tackles Kijana to the ground, and Hamu fends off Dogo with a kick. Defeated, Kijana and Dogo are led by Bunga back to their mother, who takes the pack back to their home in the Outlands.
Back in the Outlands, Kijana and Dogo practice separating young animals from the herd on their father, Goigoi. They do so well that Reirei decides to return to the Pride Lands. Once there, the jackals learn that Bunga is babysitting a group of young animals, and Reirei decides to lead her pups to the young animals while Goigoi distracts the Lion Guard.
Once at Hakuna Matata Falls, Kijana and her family attack the young animals. However, with the help of Bunga, the children are able to defeat the jackals, and they are forced to retreat once more to the Outlands.
Kijana is one of Reirei's daugthers who, just like her, is devious, manipulative and evil as well. Kijana obeys her mother’s every command, is very intelligent, and is good at fighting and hunting despite just being a pup. It seems that Reirei does care for her, but isn’t afraid to use her in her schemes at all.
Much like Dogo, Goigoi is close to his daughter, though Kijana is probably more close to her mother, at least where training is concerned. When she and Dogo were unable to find anyone smaller than their older siblings to practice on, Goigoi willingly offered himself to be their target, and Kijana promptly tackled him.
Dogo is shown to have a typical sibling relationship with his sister, Kijana. Although the two work well together, they can sometimes compete for their mother's approval. However, the pair don't seem to argue over this and always remember that working together will give them a better chance at success. Since they both take so well after their mother, they are particularly skilled in working together to deceive others such as Hamu when they tried to attack him.

Later, when she and the other jackals arrive, he tells Juhudi, Hamu, Little Monkey, Young Rhino, and Young Serval to Teke, Ruka, and Teleza to defeat them. The young animals then sit on top of the jackals and Kijana has never messed with the Lion Guard again since that incident.
