Kelsey Pokoly is a short 8-year-old[1] girl who is the deuteragonist of Craig of the Creek. She is best friends with Craig and J.P.. She is passionate about heroism and reading.

Physical appearance

Kelsey is fairly short when compared to her friends Craig and J.P. She has peach skin, light red hair tied into a bun at the back of her head, and thick, dark red eyebrows. She also has Mortimor, a yellow and green bird that sits on her head most of the time.

Kelsey wears a blue-gray T-shirt with a heart on it, and also wears pink shorts. In the pilot, her shoes are green and have a white bottom, but in the series, she wears blue boots. She has a dark blue cape that she wears around her neck.


Kelsey is very dramatic, in that she often narrates her life in her head in a style akin to theater.

She likes reading, as shown in "The Final Book", and is very upset when she can't find the last book in her favorite series. Kelsey says she spent years reading the young adult series and threatens the librarian when he says he can't tell Kelsey who took the book she's looking for. She often bonds with Stacks over their favorite books, even going so far as to form a book club together in Secret Book Club.

Kelsey can be reckless sometimes. Kelsey also sometimes doesn't consider people's feelings and doesn't think before she acts.


A Sword is Forged

Kelsey always carries her iconic sword with her, formed from a cardboard handle and a cut of PVC pipe. ("Quarter-inch construction-grade PVC pipe with a smooth finish", according to Piper) It is a gift from her father, and holds high sentimental value to her.

In "The Other Side", Kelsey's sword was destroyed by Maya. She mentions in "Camper on the Run" that she had a new sword made since then.

In "Kelsey the Worthy", it is shown that her sword was forged even before she adopted her current bird Mortimor, cut by Piper at Big Boy Roy's Lumber Shack. To this day, Piper remembers the exact cut and materials used, as people usually just used their piping for toilets.


  • Kelsey was and in some ways, still is, very close to her deceased mother. Her mother read her bedtime stories (which may have been the source of her love of books), and in "Alone Quest" Kelsey thanks her mother for the beautiful day.
  • Kelsey is the only character in the series to be recast.
  • In "The Invitation", Kelsey revealed the only dish she knew how to make was the Hungarian dish chicken paprikash, suggesting she is of Hungarian heritage.
  • In "Doorway to Helen", Kelsey refers to her grandmother as her bubbe, indicating she may be Jewish.
  • In "Big Pinchy", it is revealed that she is camera-shy.
  • In "The Shortcut", it appears that Kelsey is a tough trader.
  • Kelsey makes a cameo in the OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes episode "Crossover Nexus" as one of the Cartoon Network heroes that were summoned and turned to stone by Strike.
  • Kelsey does not like pineapple on pizza.
