Gill is a typical kid, energetic, playful and curious about the ocean world that surrounds him. He isn’t the biggest shark in the sea, but he’s got big dreams, so he knows one day he’ll be the top fish on the food chain.
Gill’s biggest idol and role model is his dad, who works as an ambassador to the human world, circling the globe and stopping at seaports to share his vast knowledge and fearless spirit with adventurers everywhere. Gill’s mom has had plenty of adventures of her own, but now prefers to stay closer to home, where she can work on perfecting her quirky (but very tasty) sushi recipes.
Gill spends a lot of his time snooping around the reef with his ever-present camera always at the ready, taking on the role of a “Private Fish-Eye” – uncovering the facts about fishy characters in the neighborhood. Even when he’s not “working” as an amateur detective, Gill’s the kind of kid who asks a million questions a day. He has so much energy, though, that he won’t always hang around long enough to hear the answer.
Gill likes to take a “fins on” approach to learning. Instead of studying, he likes to explore, eagerly swimming off to distant grottoes, shipwrecks and reefs to search for artifacts from ancient undersea civilizations. Whenever he gets in trouble, which is often, he manages to charm his way out of a tight spot with his earnest manner and boundless energy.
