Kwashi meets Simba for the first time while picking blossoms. The prince is looking for his friend Nala. Later, when the lion is a teenager and Mufasa is defeated by the evil Scar, Kwashi instructs Simba to run across the desert to escape the hyenas and to stay alive. When he believes the prince to have failed him, he looks for another lion to help free the Pride Lands. Instead, he finds Simba again, older and stronger, and helps the lion take back his kingdom.
