Much like her son, Tombo's mother has dark bluish-gray skin and thin eyelashes.
Although her personality is not fully known, she is shown to be loving toward her son and misses him dearly when he is kicked out of their herd.
After Tombo saves the Pride Lands from a raging fire, she looks at her son with glee, and the leader names him "Hero of the Year." Shortly after, she is overjoyed to be reunited with her son and thanks Simba and Nala for their help. Finally, she watches along with the cubs as Tombo squirts himself with water.
