Fergus is tall for his age, loves sports and works out regularly in the gym. He’s physically strong and is incredibly proud of achieving a black belt at Taekwondo. He’s Captain of the school football team and spends his weekends chasing extreme sports instead of studying.

With flowing golden waves and a manicure to die for, Aimie is calm, caring, a great communicator and loves rehearsing for her next role at drama school. She’s a home bird, happy to spend hours in her pristine bedroom chatting to friends about the latest fashions, experimenting with new cosmetics, and gossiping about celebrities. She’s also a diligent student, her homework is always in on time, and she loves reading. Like her mother and younger sister, she hates dirt and clutter, and her worse nightmare is going camping. She can’t believe her parents have insisted on her giving Star Camp a try – there’s nowhere to plug in her straighteners… and don’t even mention the toilets!
Oscar is a daydreamer. School for him is boring – there’s nothing worse than being forced to read about the world and its inhabitants from dusty old text books instead of experiencing it for real. He loves Scouts and his favourite kind of weekend entails jumping into his family’s campervan with his brother Archie and heading off for a stint of orienteering and communing with nature. He loves animals, plants, astronomy and camping in the wild. He is sensible, practical and patient, but easily diverted when there is an interesting specimen to study.

His world revolves around his extensive collection of comic books and dreaming up strategies for his next virtual mission. He loathes all sports but loves gadgets and tech of every kind, even to the extent of building some of his own. He’s horrified when he’s dropped him off at Star Camp and there’s no wi-fi.

She’s an only child, indulged by her parents, the ‘star’ in the house which embarrasses her when she has friends round. She’s prone to scatter her belongings far and wide and her bedroom is littered with books, sports equipment, discarded clothes and trainers, and she’s forever being told to tidy up.

He’s also a good friend and courageous guide on the Star Jumpers quest to locate the Stone.
