Murphy Starlion is an anthropomorphic lion prince of Aramalia, and is the leader/founder of the Star Dragons.
(Prior to his Adventures)
Murphy was born a Prince of the magical world known as “Aramalia”. His parents were King Lorosius and Queen Jealara. Murphy was always willing to help others. Life was peaceful for him in the Nabrodan Valley and problems were few. But one day, when Murphy was at the age of three, Shreddrhan, an evil tiger who led a viscous army called the Red Dagger to conquer every last corner of Aramalia, came to the Nabrodan Valley and attacked. The residents of the valley were caught unawares. King Lorosius led what soldiers he could muster into battle against Shreddrhan, but not before sending Jealara to flee with their son to safety. Jealara fled the valley with Murphy, but were followed by Shreddrhan and some of his soldiers. Jealara ran with her child into the woods. During the chase, she was wounded by an arrow. Before she could start running again, Shreddrhan and his soldiers had captured her and Murphy. Murphy noticed the sword that Shreddrhan held in his hand. It was Lorosius’s sword. Murphy knew this could only mean his father was killed by Shreddrhan. Murphy could only watch as Shreddrhan struck his mother down with Lorosius’s sword. Shreddrhan then turned to Murphy and, with one swing of his claws, cut Murphy’s left shoulder. And then, Shreddrhan and his soldiers left Murphy to die in the woods, and Murphy was alone.
Murphy lived the forest alone for months, until he was found by a leopard. The leopard recognized the Dragon medallion around his neck. This was a symbol of the Royal Family. The leopard took Murphy to a hidden castle. As Murphy soon discovered, it was an academy called Oargoathon, where warriors were being trained to fight Shreddrhan and the Red Dagger. The teachers at the academy were relieved to know that the son of Lorosius was alive. The leopard, named “Mshauri”, who was headmaster there, raised Murphy as his own son and trained him as a warrior. Murphy became a skilled warrior and a great leader. When Murphy reached the age of fourteen, he singlehandedly slew a fearsome Chimera that threatened a village.
Later on, Murphy formed his own team, consisting of his long-lost cousin Zielae, Boldekhan the Doberman, Pavisoso the Parrot, and Wajanja the Kangaroo.
