Bear Mtenga is a MAGA soldier, operating within the Tanker Regiment's Downfall Company.
He is a private in fire team One-Four Alpha, under Corporal Frane Harth, and works alongside privates Haynis Rothrom and Burner.
When deployed to combat Mtenga has a preference for working with Ragnar Otkellsson of fire team Bravo. Since Corporal Harth supervises both of their fire teams Bear often gets his way.
During the Second Liberation of Mibes, while armed only with a metal bar, Mtenga single-handedly took on a group of Viskr skulkers. After this encounter he was described by Brokko Daxon as being a "beardy black guy the size of a house" (→LOTD).
Mtenga was one of the Tankers assigned to Operation Keystone, and during that operation he twice fought against Rasas on the surface of Guathelia (→TRD).
Bear was present during the liberation of Forge Ruinous from intruding Rasas, and the invasion of the city of Arroch on Palanda Ire. While at Forge Ruinous, he saved the life of Euryce Eilentes by tackling a Rasa which had pursued her. She reciprocated by shooting the Rasa. Later, during the siege of Damastion, he demonstrated his size by accidentally breaking a barricade when he slammed his weight against the rear side of it (→FSS).
While most Tankers have a nickname, Mtenga is simply called 'Bear' by his squad mates.
