Animal Jam Alpha List

Click here to visit the AJS page on Jamaasian history!

Main Alphas

Liza
The Panda Alpha
Liza's the first alpha everyone meets on Animal Jam, as she welcomes you to the game on her ship, the Blue Heron. Unlike real pandas, she's bipedal. Her hair is tied up in a braid, and her ears are studded with turquoise earrings. She usually carries a pretty wooden staff with a flower on top. The staff looks as if it's made of bamboo, the favorite food of many pandas. On a DE post, it is states she walked to Jamaa on foot, instead of riding on Mira's back like many others. Her favorite color is pink! Named after Eliza Scidmore, a kind lady who worked for National Geographic, she's bound to be a nice, caring alpha.

_____________
Greely
The Wolf Alpha
Greely, the romance hating wolf. This mysterious Alpha is loved by many and feared by all. He has had many an adventure dedicated to him, including Greely's Inferno, and The Search For Greely. His appearance varies depending on the artist. For the most part, he is a blue-gray wolf with a white underside. He dons a golden chain around his neck, and dull anklets. And, his hair? Just woah. Some depict him as yellow-eyed, some as amber-eyed. In older offical artwork, he seemed to have a red stone in his eye, possibly a ruby. You can also find a ruby in his study. It is rumored he was born in July, for ruby is that month's stone. He might be able to play the drums. You can read more about this creepy Alpha here. If you dare!
_____________
Sir Gilbert
The Tiger Alpha
"Gilbert has wondered what it must be like to be a monkey. Or a giraffe. Or a penguin, a shark, a rabbit… ALL of the other animals fascinate him. He’s been known to leap at an animal he’s never seen before and pin it to the ground with his terrifying strength, but only to ask them what their fur feels like when it rains."
This wonderful quote from the Daily Explorer showcases why Sir Gilbert is my personal favorite alpha.
He dons a flowing red cape, attached to his back with a gleaming metal strap. He wears shining bangles on his legs. He and Peck are the only alphas not to yet appear in adventures, as of Sept. 30th. 2014. His favorite color is the color of fire, red.

_____________
Peck
The Bunny Alpha
Peck is the hot-headed bunny alpha. She's most noted upon by jammers by her creativity, carrying paintbrushes everywhere she goes. She's got a stellar sense of humor, and knows too many pranks to count! You can only imagine Greely's face after one of Peck's little jokes, a shining gleam of amusement in his eyes. Peck can cheer everyone up, and you can see her yourself hopping through the shadows in the Bunny Party. Her statues also appear there, after about bunnies hop on it together. Her looks match her spirit, cute and creative, with a hint of rebellion. She has purple head fur, in sideswept bangs. Her ears are patched, but it is hard to tell in different artworks if it's a covering or a marking. She has purple ribbons on her tail and left ear, and a bell on her right ear. Her favorite color is purple. It is rumored the Art Studio in Coral Canyons is where she makes her home. In the original drafts of the game, it was going to be the Claws ń Paws tree.

______________
Cosmo
The Koala Alpha
Cosmo, inventor of Boomseeds, tender of plants. He is a well mannered koala, always calm. But be warned–he can get pretty snappy if you mess with him! On official album covers, he is shown playing a trumpet. He is often seen with the reappearing red bird of AJ, on his staff. His favorite colors is green, the colors of plants. Makes sense, because he can understand plants. Really understand them. Hear how they feel. Amazing, huh?

_____________
Graham
The Monkey Alpha
When I was making this list, I found it hard to describe Graham. He's just so...awesome! He's the "geek" of the alphas, the one who tinkers with gears and levers. While Liza depends on teamwork, and Sir Gilbert on brute strength, Graham depends on machines. This was illustrated in a story on DE, which you can find here.  He built the tail fin for Tavie in Turning the Tide. He seems to be an older monkey, with the experience of many years. This is shown in part by his white hair and dull markings. His favorite color is yellow.
_____________

Tavie (& Venus)
The Dolphin Alpha(s?)
There are two dolphin alphas, one known to us more than the other. Let's start with Tavie. Tavie is the dolphin alpha that appears in In Too Deep and Turning the Tide. She was born without a tail fin, and she went on a long journey to find someone skilled enough with prosthetics to replace it. Graham made the tailfin she wears. She's a musically inclined alpha, like her name implies. Tavie is derived from 'Octavia', which can come from octave. Octave is a musical term. She's part of a band, and plays a guitar made out of a pink nautilus shell. A pretty, pale pink tiara lies on top of her head. She is the only alpha known to have a pet, her seahorse Rio.
The other dolphin, Venus, was presumed to be an alpha due to her statue in Sunken Treasures. It is worth noting, however, AJHQ changed the statue's name after Tavie's arrival. It is called "Dolphin Venus Statue," instead of "Venus Statue." Tere are continued questions of her alpha status, which AJHQ has neither denied nor confirmed. She and Tavie both appear Bottlenosed Dophins.


Lesser Alphas
The Lesser Alphas, as we call them, are alphas that have not yet appeared in Adventures. They are usually found on statues.

  4. Harper is the otter alpha.......

  5. I'd just like to say that the Poseidon and Venus statues are just from Greek and Roman mythology and aren't alphas. They're just portrayed as animals in the game, that's all.

  6. I disagree with Animal Jam's logic with Taive. To start off, Taive is pretty much a ripoff of Winter who is a real dolphin who had to have her tail removed. Also if Taive has no relation in production with Winter, it'd be impossible for Taive to be born without a tail. Dolphins have to push the water down with their tails to swim, and without the tail to swim and no clue at birth how to properly swim, she'd be dead. >.<

  13. I can't believe Liza's favorite color is pink! -.- she dosen't even WEAR pink :l

    ReplyDelete
  14. That's no reason why it can't be her favorite color.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I agree somewhat with you. After all, AJHQ gives us so many facts.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Not trying to be a "tattletale" or anything, but a little birdie on the ajchristmaslodge.blogspot.com
    used your pictures without credit, Bonsaii. O,O

  17. Juno is Hera in Roman Mythology (( I believe )) and is Hera in Greek Mythology. C8
    @Ronen Jamaa
    Not saying they are the gods, but, I'm a mythology fan, gotta point it out! c:

  18. I like blue but I have barely any blue clothes! Plus Liza has pink makeup under her eyes. And when she teloports or whatever, a pink flower thing goes around her, hay maybe the color of the teloportey-thing that alphas have predict there fave colour! Maybe. :D And I'm Tigerclaw50114 in aj.

  21. My favourite alpha is Sir Gilbert for the exact same reason as yours, Bonsaii!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Very nice! Though I dont know which spirit author wrote it, I actually think the whole team put in the effort, so thanks for this wonderful post spirit authors!

    ReplyDelete
  23. You forgot Juno.. But they are still alphas they just have the same name as some gods

    ReplyDelete
  24. I like Greely the best

    ReplyDelete
  25. We have the same favorite alpha! :D
    I honestly think Greely and Liza are overrated, but that's just my opinion :P Graham is pretty cool, too. (By the way it's Ndude5 I'm just not signed in right now and I'm too lazy to sign in xD)

    ReplyDelete
  26. lol Juno is my last name

    ReplyDelete
  27. total stereotype. They make a strong, smart woman figure and have her favorite color pink :l

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hey thanks for informing us. I'm sure we'll get back to you soon. Over and out =)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I know right? I pictured her as a more sort of ORANGE, YELLOW or GREEN personality. To do with her nature side?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh that's nice! Great thinking, Nutterbutters! We'll get back to you soon, but great observations and I like the way you think! You're certainly a smart one!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yes they were, nice thinking, except for "religious" reasons, either AJ or AJS Blog stopped naming them shamans. I thought they were, too.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Yes great work, Rosey!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I get your drift, yay.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hmmm Bill, while I support your logic, I think you're being a bit.... too OTT about this, I mean, it's only a game if you understand what I mean? I probably disagree that they ripped off Winter because why would they do that? It's worth researching though, good topic.... I don't want to take sides because I know that's not a hater comment, RIGHT?
    But I find Taive annoying. She is an additional alpha or "shaman" who has nothing to do with AJ, they added her to get more people in the oceans of Jamaa. She was random and a last-moment thought and I hate that.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I like Peck :P and LaSalle, and Amelia, and Cosmo, and Sophia. I mostly like Cosmo and Peck though.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yes! Someone agreed :) Pink just seems kind of.... well, she looks so MANLY
    Don't take me the wrong way, anyone.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I LOVE GREELY! HE IS SO MYSTERIOUS!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think it was Liza. I don't really play Animal Jam and I didn't do adventures but my friend told me it was Liza.
