Akela Quotes in The Jungle Book (2016)
Akela: Mowgli is a member of our pack!

Shere Khan: [shows his scars] Does my face not remind you of what grown man can do?

Bagheera: I'm the one who brought him to you. And now I'll return him to where he belongs.
Raksha: [goes in front of Mowgli] I won't let you. He's my cub!
Akela: We knew this day would come.
Raksha: We are the only family he's ever known!
