Zazu from The Lion King said it best… “There’s one in every family, Sire. Two in mine, actually. And they always manage to ruin special occasions.” Unlike Scar, none of these bad apples actually killed a family member (although one definitely threatened to), but some of their antics got pretty shady, and downright criminal. Their highly successful family members are off livin’ it up, and they could be too, but they just can’t seem to get out of their own way.
