Dumbara was the greatest hunter/tracker of Ontswa village. He was also their fiercest warrior and represented his tribe as its champion during competitions with other tribes. The notoriety caused Dumbara to become prideful and mean spirited. After accidentally killing an opponent in the ring, Dumbara is stripped and banished from his tribe and left to die. In his dying breathe Dumbara asked for and was granted forgiveness, and was resurrected now as the village's Protector.
