The Cowardly Lion is the last straggler that Dorothy picks up on the yellow brick road. He is a beast of the forest, venturing to Oz to get courage from the Wizard. He is frightened of everything, and his terror and subsequent sadness is extremely over-the-top. By the end, he is able to find his confidence.
