Faraji Ngala was one of the eight acolytes chosen by the Ninja Tribunal. His avatar was a lion. He had a good friendship with Leonardo and lets him use his weapon until he is shown alive after the invasion of the Foot Mystics.
Faraji appears as one of the eight chosen acolytes in the Turtles 2003 animated series' Lost Episodes. He and his fellow Acolytes, as well as the Ninja Turtles, were deemed worthy enough by the Ninja Tribunal to join the battle against the Tengu Shredder. During a trip to find artifacts that would prevent Shredder's resurrection, Faraji appeared to be killed in battle with the Foot Mystics but reappears later in the season, having been mysteriously not killed.
