Jamaa Lore

Click here to learn about how Zios was inspired by Incan Mythology!

Jamaa is a world full of history and legend, and lands full of ancient secrets. Here at Animal Jam Community we aim to inform all Jammers about Jamaa's history.

The Alphas
Alphas are Jamaa's protectors. They each take on a particular role that is important for the safety of the animals, particularly protecting the from Phantoms. We have made up a profile for each alpha with descriptions and graphics, so check them out by clicking a link!

Greely - Wolf Alpha

Sir Gilbert - Tiger Alpha

Liza - Panda Alpha

Graham - Monkey Alpha

Cosmo - Koala Alpha

Peck - Rabbit Alpha

There are also some other animals who are thought to be Alphas, but only their names have been found.

Zios & Mira
An Old Bio by AJHQ:
" And so it was that the Sky Father was named Zios. He created many stars and planets and set them in motion. But after eons of creation, he became lonely. So he created the Sky Mother, a grey heron and named her Mira.


Statue of Mira

Zios's Mask
Mira was beautiful and kind and they were very happy together. She loved Zios deeply and often told him how talented he was, encouraging him to create. Together, Zios and Mira created their masterpiece: a lush land filled with oceans, mountains, meadows, and all kinds of plants and animals. They named this special world Jamaa, and for hundreds of years, the world and its animals were at peace.

But today, all is not well in Jamaa. A mysterious dark force has crept into the land, stealing away animals and ruining the beauty of Jamaa. Only you can help save the animals and restore the world to its glory. Please help, for you are Jamaa's only hope. "

That is all we know of Jamaa's King and Queen. They are mentioned time to time but have never been a big theme around Animal Jam. We have no idea why! Recently it was discovered that Zios was inspired by Incan Mythology. Click here to learn more about that.


The Phantoms
An Old Bio by AJHQ:
"Mira, the Sky Mother, was heartbroken after she lost her companion spirit, Zios, the Sky Father. Her feelings of sadness and anger fell to the earth of Jamaa. Mira's tears mixed with the elements of Jamaa and formed the dark mysterious phantoms that haunt this land today. Because of the sadness and anger that they were created from, the phantoms' only goal is to bring chaos and destruction to Jamaa."

"Now, the Phantoms' only goal is to bring chaos and destruction to Jamaa. That's why we celebrate The Day of the Phantoms: to trick and tease them, preventing them from doing their dark deeds!"

These mysterious creatures roam about Jamaa, attacking animals and constantly in hope of destroying Jamaa. The Alphas Greely and Sir Gilbert specialize in fighting Phantoms, and it is because of them that animals can still roam the streets of Jamaa in safety! 

But they cannot hold of the Phantoms all by themselves! You can help the Alphas defeat the Phantoms by joining in on one of their Adventures!

  1. Could I make a suggestion? Can you make an "Ask" page so Jammers with some problems concerning AJ could, you know, ask for advice? If there was one, it would be pawsome!

    PS: Love the blog!!! Especially the theme! :D

    1. You can use the forum for that, you don't need an account to post in the Help sections. There's a thread especially for things like you were talking about

    4. Yes. I agree with your suggestion. Many jammers have questions which are kept unanswered, and as you're here from a long time ago, nobody can answer better than you, Pumaa. So that's a request from us!

    5. Yes. Its rare to talk to the creator!!!

  2. Ummmmm, aren't there supposed to be more Alphas?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes, in a way. In the Mystery Emporium (in Lost Temple of Zios) there are statues of the newer animals sold with mysterious name. In the older animals, the name is the name of the Alpha. So a lot of people think they are alphas. However, we know absolutely nothing about them!

      Delete
    2. Alas, they haven't been documented yet... D:

      Delete
    3. From the Lore I think it'd be safe to assume that they aren't, considering Peck was the "newest alpha". Although I can't completely rule them out. It's possible that they're still a factor in the "phantom war," but have lower ranks. As jammers, in war terms, we'd be privates ((actually, scratch that, we'd be like sub-privates considering we nEVER have to think for ourselves in the adventures >8U)), and the Alphas would be like Generals, and the other statue dudes would be somewhere in between c:

    4. Some people address the lesser-known Alphas as Shamans, and then the main Alphas are just, y'know, Alphas.

    5. Yep, there are. But they have less importance and are rather known as Shamans.

      Delete
    6. Why are there so many alphas and why are they not in adventures?

      Delete
    7. I know that there are primary alphas in adventures but were is peck and that tiger dude? There primary right?

    3. I like to think of Phantoms as only wanting to chase off the Alphas and avenging Zios's death. It puts a pleasant twist on things.

  5. I love reading about the history of Jamaa. The story of Mira and Zios is so interesting, and it's very surprising that the phantoms were actually created by Mira (on accident of course).

    1. Animal Jam lore is cool! What a shame they removed them... D:

      Delete
    2. They're really trying to restore a lot of the past lore c:
      The Alpha Spotlights & adventures are examples of that. It's a little more clear cut, and less intense for Animal Jam's younger audience.

    3. Yep, I would have never knew unless I read this.
      Thanks for such great informtion. :D

  7. >n< I really wish we could have back and forth conversations with the alphas, rather than having them sending us on a wild goose chase throughout the adventures. We should have more of a say, and more room for having our own tactics & strategies in the "phantom war".

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Although that's asking a bit much, I can't imagine a little AI technology could be too hard? AND THEIR CALLED ADVENTURES, NOT MISSIONS! There should be a lot more adventure, and wonder, and choice. We should choose which patch to take, and WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO LOOSE!! The next infantry of jammers can make things right, but it's not fun if there's no chance of losing :P

      Delete
    2. Yeah, I remember you COULD meet the shamans/alphas two years ago! It was lovely~

      Delete
    3. I second EVERYTHING you said above @Calico Queen. It would be insanely epic if we could chat with the Alphas. And the "adventures" are so not adventure-y enough.

      Delete
    4. Meeting them would be awesome. :D
      I thought Snowyclaw met Graham or some other alpha, but they aren't seen any longer now.

  8. Greely should have been more informative

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's safe to assume Greely wasn't all that good at any sort of communication, and making him helpful, and friendly would be breaking his character. He's definitely still developing as a character, and I can see him relying more on the other alphas & jammers to fight this war with him, rather than being completely indifferent like before Greely's Inferno c:

  9. This page is very informative! Oooo! wouldn't it b SO AWESOME if Jammers continued the legends of Jamaa by writing them themselves?! Reply if u want 2!

  17. I think that in the adventures, the Alphas would respond to you.
    you know how the alphas used to be called the Shamans? Well I think that an "Alpha" is just a higher rank for shamans, so the animals in the chamber of knowledge and really Shamans, not Alpha Shamans.

  21. It would be really cool if the Alphas/Shamans were made into actual AJ players. Like, Liza would be Liza1234. And would be a panda looking like her. And Greely would be Greelyistough1. And Greely would be in armor. You should be able to do adventures with Alphas too. They might do all the work, hahaha. They would also be able to talk, like Liza would mainly say:
    "Come with me everyone!" or "Want to play an adventure with me?" Greely would be like:
    "Do any of you know anything about the phantoms that most jammers don't know?" or "Follow me to my secret place everyone, don't tell anyone..." They would have to put out a bunch of new clothes so they can wear it. Can you put this in a post? -Tahoelake

  22. You know what? AJHQ should create little Alpha figurines and sell them on AJ Outfitters.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The stories are so cool! I specially loved the Mira and Zios one. This question often came in my mind that was Zios here first or Mira? Who's actually the ruler of Jamaa. I first thought Mira, but it turns out as Zios. Mira is actually known as the mother of Jamaa, and Zios is father or Jamaa or something?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Who is your favorite alpha?
    Mine's Peck and Cosmo. Now Tavie too.
    AJ only gives some of the alphas importance and there's nobody to respect the others. .o.
    From them 6 (which is at the top) Liza gets the most importance. I don't like Liza anyway. She's creepy.
    Peck is cute and nice. I like Cosmo cause he's a naturalist and I love the nature. :)

    1. Not many people like Cosmo... My favorite basic Alphas are Greely and Cosmo, but my most favorite alpha, for some weird reason is Felicity :3

  25. I got a suggestion:
    You could add a blog email to this blog, because we do sometimes want to send you things and snapshots.

  26. I've got a few interesting things, which you could feature on this blog if you gave me credit.

  27. wow... I LOVE MIRA <3 she is so beautiful and talented, same as Zios :)

  29. Phantoms are just so evil. I wonder what happened to Zios.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hmm, I never knew that Zios is the true god of Jamaa, and not Mira. Hmm, interesting. Keep Up The Good Work :3

    ReplyDelete
  31. So it's technically Mira's Fault.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love this page! The images and wonderful legends really helped me understand Jamaa better!

    ReplyDelete
  33. The legends of the king and queen of Jamaa help me understand a lot about the history of Jamma! I am so glad that Greely and Sir Girbert are keeping the phantoms away so the animals can play in the streets of Jamaa. I also like to thank the other 4 alphas for helping the animals that live in Jamaa:)
