Nick (11) is an all-around cool kid. He's funny without being mean, he's athletic without being a jock, and he's nice without being a pushover. Nick’s favourite thing in the world is ADVENTURE and he’s always in search of it-- which is how he ends up in Anne's junkyard lab in the first place. Nick has a tendency to leap before he looks, which means he's had more than his fair share of stitches and broken bones. But Nick's zest for life makes him a perfect companion for genius scientist Anne because he's usually got the real world, experience tested, solutions to her by-the-book problems.
Shania (11) is one of those great personalities who defiantly dances to her own tune. She's bold, brash and confident. While Shania loves “typical girl stuff” like dancing, singing, gymnastics, fashion and pop superstars, that doesn't mean she isn't interested in other things too. Shania is curious and easily excited, she's the type of kid who makes her own fun. Shania’s a girly girl who loves working on science experiments – Shania doesn’t just break the mold; Shania doesn’t even know the mold exists.
Anne (11) is brilliant, she did create artificial intelligence after all, BUT she's also a bit socially awkward. Since Anne attends a special school for gifted kids via video conferencing, she hasn't had a lot of real-world interaction with other kids. That means meeting Nick and Shania is literally life-changing for her. Anne has never had friends that she didn't build before, so while Anne's got a lot to teach about science, she's got a lot to learn about friendship.
Pal (newborn) is an android who’s trying to figure out his (or is it her?) way in the world. Pal is new to existence and fascinated by what it means to be a kid. Once Pal grows out of the newborn stage, Pal will want to try everything related to childhood, so that she (or maybe it’s he?) can make an informed and educated analysis of life as a kid. Most notably, Anne didn’t program Pal with a gender, so Pal gets to decide if he/she wants to be a boy or a girl.
Eyes (1) was built from a microscope, telescope, camera lens and any other kind of “eyes” Anne needs. Eyes is quite literally Anne’s eyes when it comes to experiments, he can see anything even the heat spectrum and the vibrations sound makes. Unfortunately, Eyes is easily distracted—that’s what happens when you can see everything, even microscopic organisms!—and has a tendency of running off. Anne sometimes wishes that Eyes would stay put but she does understand that his curiosity about the world is something he picked up from the scientist who invented him!
Robo Mouse is a mischievous robot mouse who is programmed to eat. And that he does. A lot. No food is safe in the junkyard while Robo Mouse is turned on!
Fangs (brand new) is Anne’s latest android, who she built in the form of a guard dog for junkyard defense. However, after testing Fangs’ defenses, it turned out that Fangs’ dog-mode was way too cute and she needed to be more than just a guard dog. So Anne gave her three more modes--skunk mode, porcupine mode and boa constrictor mode—and now Fangs is unstoppable!
Pidgely is a pigeon that got injured during a rocket experiment. Anne and the rest of the kids came together to create bionic wings and a jetpack for the pigeon who would have never flown again without it. Pidgely is constantly vying for attention and is confident, funny combination of android and animal.
Hand (2.5) is the big sister of the all the other junkyard creations. Anne built her out of an old automobile plant assembly-line robot and she is the brawn of the whole operation. While Pal can get a bit chatty and Eyes can be a bit of a troublemaker, Hand is the strong silent type. She’s helpful and dependable but can get a bit jealous when Pal and Eyes (because of their smaller size) get to do things with the kids that she can’t.
