Iso is the son of the lead chef, Boolk. They are Serk, the lowest order in the Bjamalands (JAR-MA-LANDS). As an immigrant to the capital, Bjarma, Boolk is terrified of losing his job and has passed his nervousness and fear to Iso. Like his friend Euclid, Iso is supposed to work the kitchen but his imagination and playful nature cause frequent trouble. Boolk usually sends Iso out on meaningless chores to make sure his son doesn’t harm anything. This allows Iso to roam the Bjarmalands with his two main buddies, Sufi and Euclid.
