Born of Taivaantuli - the second king - and Nile, Ak was chosen as the heir and the future third king based on his looks and his prowess. Although hyperactive and having difficulties to focus on his training, the second king saw a promising future in his young son.
Because of his active and curious nature, Ak was quick to look around for adventure and make friends, some of which were rather... unlikely. Like his father who befriended birds, Ak made interspecies friends as well - such as Tarik, an Arabian wolf pup who was found orphaned. Feeling pity for the child as well as compassion for how much interest his son took in the pup, Taivaantuli took the wolf in and let him grow with his heir. Before long, the two became an inseparable pair, like brothers without being bound by blood.
Once Ak reached adolescence, his half-brother Sha began to train the youngling and prepare him for future leadership. Just like as a cub, training Ak and maintaining his focus proved to be a difficult task. Time after time, Sha had to deal with the teen running away when he found something interesting or focusing on other irrelevant points. Each time, Sha forgave him and continued to show admirable patience. However, the young heir possessed a good heart and clear morals just like his father, and thus his pride had no reason to stop believing in him.
When Ak'Jazhre came of age, he joined Sha as the second guard - while Sha would continue to guard the southern and eastern borders, Ak would now take over the northern and western ones. Tarik continued to stay by Ak's side, often acting as a secret scout for the pride or doing other small but important tasks.
On the night between the 14th and 15th of November when Ak' Jazhre was officially crowned, a strange incident occurred to him in his sleep; without his knowledge, the spirits of the wilds, joined by his ancestors, graced his body with a blessing unforeseen to his lineage, giving him a bigger figure and more physical strength as thanks for the connection his father and grandfather shared with them. Waking up, Ak discovered larger and stronger paws as well as grown fangs and a bobbed tail, as revealed by his reflection in the water he drank. Surprised and initially shaken, Ak's pridemates were excited about the difference. Tarik and Taivaantuli too, after digesting the change, urged their friend and son to accept the change. Ak's father, especially, reminded the young king to continue honouring their ancestors and the nature as the pride had until now. With that, Ak's rule gained an explosive beginning and life in the pride returned to normal. Although the wolf remained wary of his friend's grown strength from that day on, as playful tussling was never quite the same...
As Ak aged, he continued to make animal friends - upon one of his patrols, Sha came across a lone aardwolf cub. At the first sight of the youngling, Ak already exclaimed he would take care of the child, staying true to his decision regardless of the sighs emitted from his pridemates. Additionally, his father's strange connection to birds has seemed to pass on to him as well, for he woke up one morning with a mauritius blue pigeon sitting on his back, and the bird has been hesitant to leave since then. Even after it's gone out to get food, it comes back and curls up on the king's body like it's a nest. Not minding it the least, Ak eventually became so used to it he begins to worry if the bird's not there.
