Konqi Konqueror is the current mascot for the KDE community, a small cheerful green dragon. He appears in KDE software, and on many websites, including the KDE homepage. The name "Konqi" was chosen after Konqueror, the KDE web- and file browser. His creator is Stefan Spatz. Konqi appears in 3.x versions of KDE. In KDE 2.x, the mascot was a wizard called Kandalf, but Konqi also appeared in KDE 2.x on the KDE crash dialog.
Katie, Konqi's Girlfriend
Konqi has a girlfriend named Katie. Katie is also the mascot of the KDE women's project. Konqi and Katie made their costumed appearance at the KDE 4.0 Release Event in Mountain View, California, USA and Camp KDE 2010.
Kandalf was the former mascot for the KDE community during its 2.x versions. He was subsequently replaced by Konqi, a green dragon, possibly due to copyright infringement issues related to Kandalf's similarity to the wizard Gandalf (from J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings).
Kandalf is also a model of computer chassis developed by Thermaltake.
