The Little Mermaid Character Cheat Sheet
Meet the Characters
Ariel: A mermaid on the verge of maturity: innocent, headstrong, spirited and overflowing with feelings that are fathoms deep. She dares to dream about being in a different world, the world on land above the sea.
King Triton: The son of Poseidon, King of the Undersea World, and father to Ariel and her sisters. Triton has a profound belief that the Human World is dangerous and should be shunned.Prince Eric: Beneath his easy charm, handsome face and instinctive courage, Prince Eric is a reluctant ruler who'd happily trade his crown for a life of adventure on the sea.
Grimsby: Prince Eric's somewhat stuffy guardian. Without Grimsby's advice, Eric would be lost.
Sebastian: The court composer to King Triton, this crab becomes Ariel's unwilling protector.
Flounder: This fish is a faithful friend to Ariel. What Flounder lacks in courage, he makes up for in enthusiasm.
Scuttle: A seagull who fancies himself the ocean's greatest living expert on humans and their "stuff." Scuttle provides Ariel with the latest information on the fascinating land dwellers.
Flotsam and Jetsum: Ursula's lackeys, these two electric eels are slippery and cruel.
Ursula: Sorceress of the Sea, Ursula is Triton's sister. Banished forever for dabbling with "blank magic" she plots to claim the throne of the Undersea World for herself.
