Knalle Eyes: Black
Hair: None
Race: Ostrich

Occupation: Former medic on the ship Mary II, currently king

Story: Knalle is an ostrich with a voracious appetite. Rasmus Klump and his friends first met him when he was trying to eat the steering wheel from the shipwrecked Mary [1]. For a while Knalle was a part of Rasmus Klump's adventures, eating anything in sight, which might be food. During his adventures on the ship Mary II, he became the ship's medic. After he got a bag with medicine and a first aid kit from a stork, he ran around "curing" everybody by giving them medicine or wrapping them in gauze [2].

Knalle was last seen when he became king after Rasmus. Knalle accidentally gave someone a potion, which made his hair grow and he had to stay behind to cut it. Rasmus wisely abdicated and Knalle became the new king [3].

Equipment: Knalle had a medicine bag for "curing" anybody who might be sick and a dustpan for eating anything resembling food in sight.
