I know it sounds sordid
But you'll be rewarded
When at last I am given my dues!
And injustice deliciously squared
Be prepared!

So I am listening to my MP3 of FOTLK and in struck me that I did not fully understand why Scar is so bitter, what exactly was the "injustice" to him? Was it nothing more that him being born second? Or that Simba was born later? Or is their a deeper story that I am not aware of?

I need to get to work...:D

Because he is not King. He's bitter and jealous.

Because he was 2nd in line until the little hairball (Simba) was born...:mickey:

He is not in charge, Simba will reign next....plus all the women are not his !! :mickey:

That's why he has to get rid of Mufasa & Simba.

Agree. I always thought it meant that he was just self-centered/selfish and thought he was entitled to it.

He felt entitled to the throne after Mufasa, Simba being born instantly ruined his plans for the future so he took matters into his own hands.

SPOILER: As per the laws of Disney this did not end well for him. :secret:

I guess it was just a deeply selfish personality that drove him then. I thought maybe there was some backstory I wasn't aware of (in Lion King 2, 1.5, etc.) as to why he felt so entitled and angry, like perhaps he was skipped as King so he could marry Lioness Wallis Simpson, his one true love. :D

But it appears he is just a jerk through and through!
