This big ol’ bird circles the skies above Academy 118 and has, like many animals, taken a liking to Carbon. She loves collecting brightly coloured things, so if you ever lose a bottle of paint or nail polish at the Academy, it’s probably in her nest.

This gator lives behind Academy 118 and has taken a liking to Carbon. The pond she calls home smells awful and seems to have no other life in it, but she apparently prefers it that way. Once, she somehow managed to get into the biology lab and eat ALL of the dissection frogs. Normally, though, she moves so little that she’s often mistaken for dead.

W-where did Carbon even GET all these spiders?! And why are their webs so hard to destroy?!

Step through the looking-glass to meet the students of Antimatter Academy, Academy 118’s rival school! These topsy-turvy versions of the elements get along with each other just fine, but they really don’t play nice with ordinary matter. And for good reason: though the two schools are theoretically evenly matched, Academy 118 always ends up on top somehow, which the Antimatter students find exceedingly frustrating.
