As a cub, Mlezi isn't as strong as Kovu, or as bold as Kiara, wanting to stay at the den when Kovu wants to show him and his sister the pridelands. His personality is kind of like a less bold, less rebellious Kiara.
As a cub, Mlezi's main pelt is light brown, and his underbelly, paws, and muzzle are all a creamy off-white. His nose is light pink and his eyes are reddish brown.
Mlezi was first seen when he was asleep in the den and Mwangaza wakes him up. He wants to stay at the den when Mwangaza wants to go see the pridelands, but he goes anyway. He cowers behind Kiara when they run into Kion. Later, when Mwangaza meets three cubs named Kiburi, Na and Kucheza, he hides behind Kiara and Kovu at first, but he plays with them because Mwangaza is playing with them. When the others went exploring, he stayed at the den and fell asleep, but when they came back, they woke him up and told him about their adventure. He was glad he stayed at the den.
