Role in the Series
After Kion is swept across a river into the Outlands, he instructs the rest of the Guard to meet him at Flat Ridge Rock. As a result, the Guard seeks out information from Mbeya, after a suggestion from Beshte. He and Beshte talk for a while, but the Lion Guard eventually becomes impatient, insisting that Beshte stops his conversation. Beshte recalls that he never did ask Mbeya where Flat Ridge, and goes back to Mbeya do so.
On the day of Kupatana, Mbeya winds up stuck in the mud at Lake Matope. Kion and the Guard rescue him, and Mbeya thanks them gratefully.
