Lagravis is the king of the Lion tribe and the father of Laval. He believes very strongly in tradition and rules, and he can be very stubborn at times. He and Laval argue sometimes when Laval does not want to follow the rules, but both respect and love each other very much.
The prince of the Lion tribe, Laval was once very headstrong and more interested in having a good time than anything else. But the battles over CHI have helped him to grow up a little bit. While he still loves nothing more than a new adventure or a chance to have fun, he also understands more about the duties and responsibilities of a prince. He showed that by his willingness to put the past aside and ally with Cragger against a common threat. As the leader of a new, united team of heroes, the fate of Chima rests on his shoulders.
Always riding either a Speedor or his Lion Attack vehicle, Lennox is generally regarded as a freewheeling guy out for a good time. True, he drives the Lion Attack vehicle like there’s no tomorrow, and anyone getting in the way of his rushing Speedor had better look out. But he has hidden depths, and actually knows just about everything there is to know about two and four wheeled vehicles. He might look like an easy mark to his enemies, but Lennox has a few surprises for them.
The adopted daughter of Tormak, Li-Ella is a member of the guards who watch over the hidden city of the Phoenix. She is tough and smart, and more than able to take care of herself.

What neither she nor Laval know is that the evil Sir Fangar is also interested in Li’Ella and wants her to be his queen when he conquers Chima. Laval, Li’Ella and Fangar are heading for a showdown …
Leonidas is a Lion footsoldier and guard. Leonidas is not dumb. He just can't keep more than two ideas in his head at one time. If you give him a command – "Guard the entrance to the Temple" - he will execute it efficiently and without question. However, if you then give him a second command – "Clean your sword at the same time!" – he will get completely confused. He's the kind of guy who actually CAN'T chew gum and walk at the same time. But if you just want him to walk OR chew gum? He will do each of those individual tasks with more gusto than anyone else.
Longtooth is an older foot soldier who refused to join the other elders as a tribal leader. He claims he loves the "action" of the frontlines too much to leave it. The truth is: he loves TALKING about the action a lot more than actually pursuing it. He has way too many aches and pains to be a great hero, but he can be counted on for some fierce fighting... as long as his back doesn't give out in the process.
