Lucani was a former male of Pride B at Longleat Safari Park. He was the second son of ruling male Mafui and was born sometime in 2000.

He was close to his older brother Kenya due to their similar ages, and was half brother to Yendi, Luna and Kumali. In 2003, at the age of three, Lucani and Kenya had matured and clashed with their father, although Lucani was more subdued than the more belligerent Kenya. They were moved to Knowsley Safari Park to prevent further conflict and became the rulers of a new pride.

At some point before 2008, Lucani suddenly began to try and scale the electric fences and was put down, leaving Kenya the sole ruler of the pride.
