Plot[edit]

The stories are in the world of Salacia, a hidden kingdom under the sea, full of princes and princesses from different animal species. Fearing an inevitable conflict with the people of Terra Firma, the kings and queens of the sea forbid their daughters and sons to have any contact with the surface people who are completely unaware of the existence of Salacia. Three princesses, the show's protagonists, live, go to school and play together as friends: Polvina, the Octopus Kingdom princess; Tubarina, the Shark Kingdom princess and Ester, the Starfish Kingdom princess living unraveling the mysteries of Salacia.

Characters[edit]

  • Ester (Estella in European Spanish) - She is the Princess of the Starfish, and best friend of Pulpita. She usually attends the Palace of the Octopus from time to time, especially after school and on weekends. Esther is a very curious girl, loves to read and watch documentaries on television. She dreams to know the Mainland and also the Star-heaven.[2] She is voiced by Katherine Cohn Beck.
  • Tubarina (Tiburina in European and Latin Spanish) - She is the Princess of the Sharks, and daughter of one of the most powerful men in Salacia, King Shark. Tubarina is very ingenious, and disagrees with the common stereotype that sharks are evil.[3] She is voiced by Paige Walker.
  • Marcelo - He is the Prince of Hammerhead Sharks, and cousin to Tubarina. He moved to Castle Sharks while her parents, the King and Queen Hammerhead, make an important trip.
