Wema is a very shy hyena cub who is afraid of lions, both Outsiders and Pride Landers like Kion. She is shown to be very frolicsome, sportive, and playful when interacting with her brother.
Wema is a small hyena cub with purple fur and dark purple ears. Her legs and paws are dark purple and her tail is dark purple on top and light purple underneath. Her eyes are navy blue. Her underbelly and inner ears are light purple.
Wema and her brother, Tunu are engaged in a playful staredown with Madoa. She notices her fellow clan member, Jasiri walking towards them with Kion in tow. She and Tunu flee behind a rock nearby. When Kion eventually notices them he tries to say hello, but they back down in fear. Madao reveals that all they have ever known are bad lions, hence her apprehension. Madao points out the need for their watering hole to be returned to the young ones in particular. Wema watches Kion leave.
Later, when their watering hole is returned to them, Wema and Tunu are once again playing together, when Wema leads Tunu over to Kion. He's sure that they're no longer scared of him anymore since they approached him, but after taking a glance towards each other, the pair once again hide behind a nearby rock. Jasiri tells him to take it as a compliment, because he really is fierce after all.
Although Wema has no dialogue outside of yelps and barks and despite her name not being mentioned at any point during the episode, both her name and a voice actor are listed in the credits for the episode.
