Daniel is the ten year old younger brother of Samantha. Quiet and withdrawn, Daniel gravitates towards animals more than people. On the Island of Jo-Jo, Daniel befriends a Nokmey, feeding the animal to gain its trust. The Nokmey is quickly won over and becomes Daniel’s faithful and protective companion. Daniel names his pet Nok-Nok.
With Nok-Nok now his loyal companion, Daniel, like his sister Samantha, is placed under the protection of Zeebis and his small group of soldiers.
