Big Sis Isa
Big Sis Isa is 10 years old and although her brother might think she is bossy, she takes her job as a big sister very seriously. After all, she is 10 years old! She is a girly girl who plans on becoming Miss. America, a doctor, an actress or a veterinarian when she grows up. Sometimes she worries about fitting in, making friends and hoping that the kids at school like her. While Big Sis Isa gets great grades, recently at a school parent-teacher conference, her mom and dad were told that Big Sis Isa could be a bit too social at times.
Little Brother Paul
This adventurous 7 year old wants to be a super hero when he grows up. He has no doubt that he has special powers, especially when he wears a cape and his x-ray glasses. If he could have his way, he would spend every waking hour pretending to fly, leaping tall buildings and saving Big Sis Isa from alien invaders. He sometimes gets in small scuffles at school. His mom says that’s because he tries to prove himself since he is a little shorter and skinnier than his friends. He just knows that when those big kids tease him or Big Sis Isa, it makes him mad. And because he does have super hero powers, it is his duty to stick up for others.
Loony Lonnie’s family comes from a long line of hip dudes. Although most of his family is in the entertainment field and nightclub owners on Jellyfish Junction, the Zebec Navigators intrigued him from a very young age. As soon as he graduated from Zebec High School, he enrolled in the Navigators and became the first Navigator in his family. This made him very proud, even though there were many, some in his own family, who said he would never mend his crazy ways and that he would always be looking for trouble. Well, trouble does have a way of finding Loony Lonnie…even as a Navigator. But he also seems to have a unique gift for getting himself and others out of trouble at just the right time. His second passion in life is eating, which may be why he has not yet made it to the ranks of Captain.
Rodeo Roger is a Captain for the Zebec Navigators. Recently he had to take on a new Navigator called Loony Lonnie.

In his world, there is no ‘gray’. It can be lonely sometimes being the only voice of reason.
