Alabaster Snowball is in charge of the list that informs Santa whether children have been behaving. Bushy Evergreen invented the toy-making machine that Santa uses, and Bushy is in charge of all the toys. Pepper Minstix ensures that Santa's workshop stays hidden, and Shinny Upatree co-founded the secret village where the workshop is hidden. Sugarplum Mary is the assistant to Mrs. Claus, and she helps create treats and sweets. Wunorse Openslae designed Santa's sleigh, and he looks after the reindeer.
