OPAL and ORLA:

ALL TALENT READING FOR OPAL WILL ALSO BE READING FOR ORLA- both character descriptions below

[OPAL] Female. Age 8-12. Open Ethnicity. Has big dreams and wants to solve big cases. She has an unquenchable thirst for adventure and willingly runs towards the unknown. She sees herself and her partner as an “elite team” and she wants everyone else to see them that way too – much like the bravado of Peter Quill (Chris Pratt in “Guardians of the Galaxy”). SERIES LEAD

[ORLA] Female. Age 8-12. Open Ethnicity. Has been guarding an ancient Odd Squad headquarters for the past five hundred years, which is why she speaks in a more formal manner. Because she’s been inside for so long, Orla isn’t familiar with the modern world – but that doesn’t stress her out. Orla is strong, stoic, self-assured, and pretty blunt. SERIES LEAD

OMAR and OSWALD:

ALL TALENT READING FOR OMAR WILL ALSO READ FOR OSWALD- both character descriptions below

[OMAR] Male. Age 8-12. Open Ethnicity. Is Opal’s upbeat and easy-going partner, who always looks on the bright side. Omar is enthusiastic and optimistic, but can also be endearingly dim. Omar is always up for fun, which can sometimes get in the way when he should be working. Omar is super chill and great at calming others down. SERIES LEAD

[OSWALD] Male. Age 8-12. Open Ethnicity. Was an Odd Squad librarian whose only companion was lots of dusty books. He was an armchair adventurer – reading about oddness but never experiencing it. But now, he’s thrilled to finally be out in the field solving cases! He’s a LOOK HARD before you leap kind of guy. Oswald can be a bit awkward in a charming kind of way. SERIES LEAD
