It was a dark night when GherooB and his minions attacked a little town called Boo Village. They killed all residents, but missed one little Boo. That little Boo was called Yvan. When Yvan accidentally transformed into his new appearance, he started a quest for his parents and the other residents, not knowing they were killed, and called himself TaBooki. The source GherooB needed to accomplish his plan was the leaf that changed Yvan into TaBooki, and he sent his minions at him.
It was a shiny day when TaBooki heard rumors about GherooB trying to bring his dad back to life. However, he soon got confirmation when he saw GherooB and an older looking version of him attacking the woods. When they noticed TaBooki, they fled away to their castle and released their troops. With the help of his new feathered friend Teeko, he started a new quest to defeat the troops and defeat the evil duo.
TaBooki is the main hero of the series. After transforming from a little Boo into his current appearance, he has been on some adventures to defeat GherooB. TaBooki is heroic and brave, but most of all kind and friendly. In battle, TaBooki uses his tail as main weapon.
Flynn is a squirrel that got saved by TaBooki from some moles. Flynn then gladly joins TaBooki's party, and they later become good friends. Flynn dreams of being a stuntman and with his skills, he helped out the crew quite some times. Flynn uses his fists to knock and damage enemies in battle.
Theodor is a shy ant who got bullied away by his family. He then joins TaBooki's party to show them they have always been wrong about him. First being shy and unsure about himself, Theodor gained some confidence and started believing in himself again thanks to the crew. Theodor loves to read, and knows many trivia about certain objects and animals. Theodor uses his boomerang as special weapon in battle, which he stole from his dad before leaving.
Tucans is a friendly chicken that the crew met in the Forest Maze. After talking a bit, she agreed to help him by letting them ride on her back so they could reach new areas. Since then, the crew became friends with her. Tucans is always friendly, but can also be very pedantic.
Chester is a wooden chest that was found by TaBooki after being captured and thrown away by the Mole Tribe. He joined TaBooki to get his revenge on the moles, but decided to stay with him to defeat GherooB. Chester teaches TaBooki new battle techniques and gives lots of information like where to go.

Cardman is a creature from an unknown race being made out of a playing card, a dice and two puzzle pieces. He is the host of the Minigame Mode and never appears in the main story, thus he never met TaBooki. His background story is unknown.
