Rookie is the public relations officer for the PSA and a novice Secret Agent. He is also the communication lead, just as Gary is the tech lead. He is a green penguin wearing a red propeller cap and red sunglasses in PSA Secret Missions but also wearing a Red Hawaiian Shirt and the Box Costume online. He appears in Secret Missions #3, #7, #10, and #11. His first appearance is in the mission 'Case of the Missing Coins', where he is examining the vault. Like most people who are Rookies in real-life activities, Rookie makes mistakes that more experienced agents wouldn't. He seems to be very dumbfounded sometimes. He is also an Elitist. Rookie has been a mascot at certain parties since the April Fools' Party 2011; and meeting him gets you the Rookie's Giveaway Background and the Rookie stamp. Rookie can wear the Red Hawaiian Shirt and the Box Costume at the same time (because he has a special box costume that is a neck item), he can also fly with the Red Propeller Cap while wearing those items.

If you look at this picture closely, you'll see he is wearing the shirt and Box Costume at the same time.


Rookie made up a poem for the Club Penguin Times during April Fools' Day 2010:

Quack, whack, thwack, ack!

Why can't I be on the right track?

Who's the penguin with the Propeller hat?

It's me, the Rookie,

And that is that!

— Rookie

This poem, however, makes Twee laugh her head off, but displeases the other Elite Agents.



He appears as a famous meetable character online. You get a stamp for meeting him.


Mission 3: Helps on Missing Coins case. He guards the vault in the Gift Shop, but accidentally closes it and forgets the combination. Later he watches after the coins that were on the ceiling.

Mission 7: Posts signs around the Town to help find the missing Prime Gear.

Mission 10: Is a member of the Waddle Squad. He accidentally tells Herbert about the golden Puffle at the Night Club, but that was deemed fine because the puffle was a trap. Then he prepares the Electromagnet 3000 in the Gift Shop but can not power it due to forgetting to bring the Solar Panel 3000. After capturing Herbert, Rookie gives him his Spy Phone and allows Herbert to teleport away and escape, only to leave behind a packet of seeds.

Mission 11: Is sent to investigate the disappearance of several items in the Gift Shop. He also wonders if wigs can be part of their uniforms. Afterward, he helps you stop Herbert's video transmission. He later appears in the HQ during the popcorn-bomb crisis.

Also, in the 7th, 10th and 11th missions, if you move your cursor towards his hat, the propeller will spin.

System Defender[edit]

In System Defender Rookie appears as a penguin informing you about robots, but often has to be corrected by Jet Pack Guy.
