Spike is a recurring minor character in . He is a Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders baby animal blue panther and Tamara's loyal companion.

Behind the scenes Edit
Spike has been at first a purple (or "purple and orange") panther named
Rusty during the show's pre-production.  In early animation storyboards for the first season, Spike resembled the young  Simba from Lion King, as designed by Greg Autore.
Spike was voiced by
Bob Kaliban and dubbed by Lutz Schnell in German. He also later inspired the character of Avalon: Web of Magic Dreamer the wolf pup.
