Personality: incredible speed and stamina; fastest reindeer
Bio: An original member of the "Magnificent Eight" which made their first Christmas Eve flight nearly 2,000 years ago.

Personality: graceful; elegant; nimble; athletic; extrovert
Bio: Displays a certain flair and elegance as one of Santa's flying reindeer. Dancer has the grace of a gazelle, but don't tell her that, she doesn't really care for gazelles that much. A very athletic reindeer, she makes the job look much easier than it is. She is deceptively fast and has great quickness, which helps Santa and his sleigh avoid obstacles in the Christmas Eve sky each year.
Personality: proud; strong; aims to please; majestic; confident but not arrogant; team player
Bio: The most majestic of all the reindeer, Prancer is a high-stepping member of Santa's team. Prancer's high leg kicks and perfect posture are a thing of beauty to watch as the deer glides through the night sky, proudly towing the precious Christmas cargo. Prancer displays a tremendous amount of confidence, but is not arrogant in any way.
Personality: friendly; funny; flirty; playful
Bio: Vixen is not one of the best-known of Santa's "Magnificent Eight" but this reindeer has been a consistent performer throughout its Christmas career.

Personality: serious; likes peace/quiet; most powerful; stubborn; strong-willed

Personality: loving; fun-loving; sweet; good-natured; shy
Bio: Cupid is a very loving reindeer, which is how this animal got its name. A very good running companion for Comet, Cupid has pulled Santa's sleigh for a very long time right beside Comet in Santa's "lineup" of reindeer. Cupid sometimes requires a little extra hug or grooming, but this reindeer is always ready to pull the load on Christmas eve.
Personality: proud; very confident/kind of cocky; focused
Bio: Donder's name sometimes appears as Donner in books and writings about Santa Claus, the North Pole and his team of reindeer. Donder is a very proud animal that certainly is not cocky, but very confident in his abilities. Donder is recognized as one of the strongest members of Santa's team.
Personality: temperamental; aggressive; determined; impulsive; brash
Bio: One of the most aggressive members of Santa's team, Blitzen never backs down from a challenge. This reindeer is not the strongest or fastest member of the team, but no reindeer has more determination or savvy than Blitzen, who annually wins several events at the Reindeer Games.
Personality: timid; youngest; looks up to Dasher; leads the team in blizzards
Bio: Widely regarded as the "most famous reindeer of all." He is the youngest member of the group, making his first Christmas Eve run in the great snow storm of 63...that's 1863. If you look closely, you can see in his photo that the end of his nose is indeed red. At night and in bad weather, it lights the sky and guides Santa's sleigh.
