Zoo Lou is a shaman. He comes from a long line of shamans. Zoo Lou traveled the Seven Strange Strongholds, places of great wonder in Skylands, where he studied the wisdom and fighting styles of the Seven Strange Mages. After years of traveling and studying, Zoo Lou returned to find his home and been overrun by an army of trolls.
Zoo Lou was angry. After now having mastered the enchanted art of communicating with nature and summoning animals from his travels, Zoo Lou unleashed his great mojo. Zoo Lou was able to single handedly defeat the trolls in his village. He caught the attention of another Skylander, Double Trouble, who brought him before Master Eon and the Skylanders. The rest is history.
Zoo Lou is by far my favorite character. He was the first character I took to Level 20.
