Biography

The Lion Guard

"Rafiki's New Neighbors"

When the Lion Guard learns that Furaha has been exiled from Tumbili's troop, Beshte and Ono resolve to bring him back.

Tumbili reluctantly allows Furaha, a rambunctious young monkey, to rejoin his troop

When they arrive, Furaha greets Tumbili enthusiastically, but Tumbili is loath to accept him back. However, in the face of Beshte's hopefulness, he gives in and allows Furaha to stay.

Later that day, Furaha's antics disturb the troop, and Tumbili reprimands him for playing games. Furaha is disheartened by his troop leader's behavior and declares that he is going to leave them to be with his own kind, which confuses Tumbili.

Physical appearance

Tumbili is lithe and aged, with a pale gray pelt and brown and black markings. He bears a gray face, a pink muzzle, and black eyes with yellow sclerae.

Personality and traits

Stoic and stern, Tumbili makes an excellent leader. He disapproves of rambunctious antics, and has little tolerance for Furaha.
