The sea is home to Ora and her many golden treasures. Ora loves gold more than anything. She has fought giants and competed in contests just to get more gold. In her free time, this fire-breathing gal loves to dance! Rumba anyone?


Three Claws
Three Claws calls a mountain peak home. His big eye and three sharp claws make him a perfect mountain guard. Sure, it’s a little lonely living on top of the mountain by himself. But as long as he has some rotten fish — his favorite food — Three Claws is happy.


Snorp loves living in the city. His long tongue makes him a great window washer. And he loves looking over his sparkling work. After work, he enjoys dining in fine restaurants and going shopping, especially for shoes!


Living underground is perfect for a digger like Moopy. Her quiet home might feel a little lonely, but it is just right for Moopy! When she takes a break from all that digging, Moopy can be found cooking, dancing, or relaxing on the beach.
