The Alphas were once ordinary animals, living in a distant land very different from Jamaa. They were recruited by Mira long ago to defend Jamaa from the first Phantom invasion, and ever since they have been exploring the farthest reaches of our world, tracking the Phantoms and freeing the animals that they imprisoned.
All of the Alphas have recently returned from their travels to help protect Jamaa from the mischievous Phantoms. They each have amazing abilities, but they can't defeat the Phantoms without YOUR help! Be sure to check out Adventures with your buddies to learn how to help the Alphas.
Liza, the Panda Alpha, is known to all of the animals of Jamaa. She was the one who welcomed you when you first arrived here! Liza helps all of the animals of Jamaa get started on their Adventures and explorations. Liza has always been a traveler and explorer too, so she understands the excitement of exploring a new land. You can learn more about Liza in the Daily Explorer, Animal Jam's blog (http://blog.animaljam.com/alpha-spotlight-liza/).
Greely may be the least understood of the Alpha animals protecting Jamaa. Solitary by nature and a master of stealth, Greely spends most of his time alone and far from Jamaa, observing the movements of the Phantoms and sabotaging them from the shadows. Greely believes that the Alphas should turn the devious methods of the Phantoms against them. The other Alphas may not entirely trust Greely and his methods, but they certainly respect him. He knows more about the Phantoms and their movements than anyone. To learn more about Greely, check out our blog post at the Daily Explorer (http://blog.animaljam.com/alpha-spotlight-greely/).
The first thing Graham noticed about the other Alphas was that they seemed to do everything the hard way. For example, take that time Liza tracked the Spirit Stone of the giraffes to a Phantom cavern sealed by an enormous boulder. By the time Graham got there, Liza had a dozen animals straining to move the stone out of the way, and after hours of effort they’d barely made it budge. Graham shook his head and clucked his tongue. All of that sweat, and nothing to show for it. Why, it was the simplest thing in the world to build a waterwheel on a nearby stream and set up a system of gears, pulleys, and counterweights that could raise and lower the giant rock with the effortless pull of a lever. Now they could move the boulder up and down any time they wanted, without breaking a sweat! Graham still visits the cavern from time to time, since the boulder-moving machine is great for breaking open stubborn coconuts.
