He is a platypus as his name suggests. However, he has an indigo bill.
He is usually a host and a scoutmaster to young marsupials. He is actually trying to get everyone's attention by yelling out "Quiet!" during events. Not only he is a scoutmaster.

- Despite standing on 2 legs (which is mostly anthropomorphic), a platypus in real life is quadrupedal (standing on 4 legs). However, he is sometimes seen walking on 4 legs.
