Pagoola is a stubborn African bush elephant who never trusts humans or human culture - however, he does praise Kimba for the cub's beliefs. In episode 44, Pagoola gives Kimba a trail: bypass his defenses and he shall rescue Kenichi. As usual, he praises the cub, letting him and his friends pass.
He is an African Elephant, and the father of Bizo. Pagoola first appeared in Kimba the White Lion, where he and his herd are sometimes stubborn.
Like in some films, Pagoola appears to be the leader of his herd, but in real life, elephant herds are led by a dominant female called a matriarch. It's possible that Pagoola's wife was the matriarch of his herd, and he took over after her death.
