In conjunction with today's Green Lion review, here's the official profile of its pilot, Pidge:
Guardian Spirit of Forest
Pidge originally joined the team to search the galaxy for missing family members, but then came to understand the larger goal of conquering Zarkon and liberating the universe. Pidge loves and understands all things tech and often finds it easier to talk to gadgets than other humans.
The '80s Pidge was the team's young genius; the modern one keeps that, but definitely manages to change things around a little. In the original Japanese show, the character's name was Suzuishi Hiroshi, a 12-year-old who got the nickname "Chibi."
