Rookie is the Public Relations officer of the Club Penguin Island. He was also a Comm leader at Elite Penguin Foundation when he was an intern agent. Rookie, as his name suggests, was a new member of Elite Penguin Foundation and made mistakes like every rookie does. He has made pretty silly mistakes throughout the game and is seen as a silly Club Penguin character who is not very bright of the mind but is a nice and friendly guy. He is seen as a cool guy who likes to attend parties and is known for being irresponsible and very prone to making mistakes. Despite this, Rookie is a very adorable character and has been known for his friendliness in the game.
He is the first character you interact with on your first mission. Being a rookie, he seems nervous and makes many small mistakes. This might be the reason why he does not appear to be working in Elite Penguin Foundation missions too much and is seen more as a mascot who comes to parties.
He has appeared in many parties as a meetable character. His first appearance as a meetable character was in April Fools’ Party 2011 and he reappeared for the same party next year. He has also appeared in he Underwater Expedition, the Halloween Party 2014, and many other events. You can obtain his stamp, background, and also add him to your buddy list when you meet him. At times he can be hard to find so you might want to think about finding him with a tracker.
His clumsy nature adds a lot of fun and entertainment to the game’s premise and many players like to see him work his wonders and get into trouble. He also creates a lot of commotion and leaves many penguins in trouble as well. In one of the mini games, he accidentally leaks computer bugs because he thought that the jar that contained them said computer hugs! He clearly shows his acceptance of the fact that he will continue to be silly and keep making mistakes.
His attire is one of the most unique in the game. The Club Penguin character is shown wearing a red propeller cap and a pair of red sunglasses. He is dressed in a red, flower patterned shirt which shows Hawaiian influence. The green penguin does not come across as an Elite Penguin Foundation member by his appearance as he is depicted as a relaxed and carefree Club Penguin character.
Rookie has also written poems for the Club Penguin Times and has many puffle friends. One of the poems is about himself in which he wonders why he always makes mistakes. He also refers to himself as ‘the penguin with the Propeller hat’ and calls himself ‘the Rookie’ signifying he considers himself a rookie as in the literal sense of the word.
