Craig is the titular main character of Craig of the Creek. He is a young boy who lives with his two parents, his younger sister Jessica, and his older brother Bernard. He is best friends to Kelsey and JP, both of whom he hangs out with on the daily in the creek. His first appearance was in the pilot episode.
Craig is of average stature and is rather slim. He has dark skin, large expressive eyes, similarly sized ears, a prominent, flat nose, and black hair. His head is also notably large for his overall size.
His main outfit, dubbed his "creek clothes," consists of a yellow long-sleeved T-shirt with a gray sleeveless hoodie (also known as his "hoodie armor", which has level 7 protection against thorns), jeans, and white sneakers. He also carries a large teal-colored frame purse, dubbed the "Purse of Holding," around with him.
