NUNKOS

Very smart, kind and sympathetic gnome, who always helps his friends find a way out of any trouble and enjoys their respect and love. Gnomes especially like the way he plays their favorite tunes on his magical artvook.

                         

VUNKOS AND BUNKOS

Hardworking brothers inventors of useful contraptions and amazing wonders. They have the reputation of miracle-masters of all that can not even exist, but could be very useful to anyone. Their house is so full of various special tools, parts and odd jobs that sometimes they cannot find something, and then they have to re-invent it again, but this time, with important modifications and new features. In this way, their inventions become more amazing and useful.

TUNKOS

A little rustic, very trustful and proactive gnome-blacksmith, who is loved by his friends for his willingness to help anyone in need. Moreover, he is so amazingly strong as a gnome that he can simultaneously pick up all his friends and keep them on the shoulders.


FUNKOS

A bit gruffy, but very caring doctor, and, at the same time, a responsible and prudent gnome-philosopher. He often warns his friends of the trouble which they face together. However, he knows a lot about the things that nobody has ever seen, and explores the surviving objects and secret books of the ancient atlanteans gnomes with knowledge of the Magic Age.



CHUNKOS

A brave adventurer and speaker, sometimes enthralling his friends in dangerous expeditions to the most remote corners of the underground and the border worlds. Once he even left the dungeons in the celestial world and became friends with the bird, and decorated his hat with a feather.

GUNKOS

A bit chubby, with a very enthusiastic culinary sweet tooth, who keeps a special diet of the most delicious dishes in the world, which he alwaysoffers to everybody.


The mission of the project – to create a modern original kind and instructive tale about friendship and personal heroism, based on international folklore.
