How Mumbo joined the Tourney

Mumbo generally likes helping people out and has a very strong loyalty streak - he's never stopped being Banjo's friend, while he's been equally permanent as Humba Wumba's rival.

English does not appear to be Mumbo Jumbo's first language; he always speaks in the third person and often doesn't refer to people by their name. For instance, he always refers to Banjo and Kazooie as "bear" and "bird" respectively.
