An incredible adventure inspired by an Innu legend
A hero with spectacular superpowers
Tshakapesh has many superpowers and is braver than anyone. He is the only superhero who can protect Mother Earth from the mischievous Carcajou. He is also the brother of Imala, the village chief. To avoid attracting attention, he hides under the identity of Mashk, a stubborn and playful 14-year-old who is friends with Ti and has a crush on Asha.
Tshen is a super monster and the sworn enemy of Tshakapesh. His mission is to wreak havoc in the village and destroy the last green and unpolluted region on the planet. Both cunning and sly, Carcajou has the power to transform himself. He often hides under the identity of Mr. K, a wealthy businessman who lives in a mansion on the edge of the village.
Imala is Tshakapesh's big sister and the village chief. Wanting to protect the village from Carcajou, she asked Tshakapesh to return to Earth by communicating with him by telepathy. She is clever, caring and always willing to help others⎯and keep her brother out of trouble!
Asha is cheerful, optimistic and always knows how to lift peoples’ spirits. She is 14 years old and dreams of becoming a famous singer. Asha only has eyes for the amazing Tshakapesh.
I.T. is 12 years old and he is Mashk's best friend. As a budding genius and technology enthusiast, he spends hours in front of the computer at the community center. I.T. dreams of having an ultra-powerful computer, but in the meantime, he recycles the villagers’ old gadgets.
Piku is not just a shrew, she is also the faithful friend and confidante of Tshakapesh. Piku has been at his side since childhood and they have developed their own secret code language. Despite being tiny, Piku is smart and very strong.
Shaman is the village elder. Whenever the villagers have problems, Shaman always has good advice for them. He knows all the ancient traditions and tells the best stories and legends. He is sometimes found in his shaking tent communicating with Manitu, the Great Spirit.
Manitu is the spirit who gave Tshakapesh superpowers so that he could defeat Carcajou. As the superhero’s guide, Manitu is the only one who can restore Tshakapesh’s strength when he becomes exhausted in battle.
