Meet the Characters
Coral is the leader of Fio’s Flamboyance, the editor of Avian Gazette and a professor of Avian history with a specialty in identifying avian fossils.
DJ Spike Feathers & Zangy
Spike Feathers has been a DJ since he was a young flamingo. He loves classic rock especially The Byrds…for obvious reasons!
Spike met Zangy in Curaçao and invites her along whenever he has a special gig. Spike and Zangy amp up the rhythm and everyone starts dancing when Spike plays Flap Your Wings on his ukulele.
Tortellini is a sea turtle Fio met when he was doing a marine environmental study. Tortellini has great breath-holding abilities and can fly through the water the way Fio flies through the air. He is an expert on marine debris—especially plastics, balloons, and straws. Because of their interest in saving the environment, Fio and Tortellini decided to team up to help the oceans.
Mikey met Fleur when she was in New Zealand covering the Oceania Gymnastic games. He is a Little Blue Penguin. He watches the gymnasts with great admiration! He is an accomplished swimmer but he is not so graceful on land. He is the smallest of the penguins which makes him very nimble when climbing in Fleur’s backpack. Mikey might be tiny but he can be very noisy when cheering on a winning team.
Ursie is a parrot who loves all things colorful! When she saw an exhibit of Joel’s nature photography she asked Joel if he needed an assistant. Not only is she very smart and talented with tools, she also has great problem-solving skills. With her help, Joel’s photo shoots are very easy to set up. Ursie loves roller coasters so the two of them make sure to go to amusement parks when they have time.
Rosie is the President of the Avian Games. She is close friends with Top Knot, the President of the Paravian Games. Her bright pink feathers sometimes cause Rosie to be mistaken for a flamingo; but she is not a flamingo! Rosie is a Roseate Spoonbill with a very special spoon shaped bill. Like Fio, Rosie is very social and a great flyer. She encourages all the Avian Game athletes to help Mother Nature by cleaning up the environment.
