Characters

Main Characters

Olive is usually calm, brisk, and serious, unless the subject turns to her favorite basketball team, the Burly Bears. She has a morbid fear of pies. In the season 1 finale, Olive departs the series along with her partner, Otto, to run a different Odd Squad precinct as Ms. O.
  • Agent Otto (Filip Geljo) - Olive's partner, and in the opening episode the newest Odd Squad agent. He turned ten in the first episode. The fun-loving Otto acts as a comic foil to Olive's straight-man demeanor, frequently annoying her. Although a rookie, Otto frequently uncovers the facts needed to solve the case at hand, even doing so in Olive's absence, proving his worth as an agent. In the season 1 finale, Otto departs the series to run another Odd Squad office as Mr. O with his partner, Olive.
  • Ms. O / Agent Oprah  (Millie Davis) - Head of Odd Squad, the stern Ms. O leads the organization with an iron fist. Whenever something goes wrong, she has the tendency to yell and is frequently seen sipping a juice box.

  • Agent Oscar  (Sean Michael Kyer) - Odd Squad's resident scientist and gadgeteer, Oscar is a quirky genius who spends most of his time at Odd Squad Headquarters tinkering with gadgets in his lab.

  • Math Room  (voiced by T.J. McGibbon) - The virtual space construct Odd Squad agents can retreat to by twisting their badges when they need to visualize mathematical problems. They start to spin and sometimes get to the math room dizzy. The Math Room is inhabited by sentient origami papers with a unified personality.

  • Agent Olympia (Anna Cathcart) - A new agent, introduced at the start of season 2, who joins to fill the opening left by the departure of Olive and Otto in the season 1 finale. She was given early graduation from the Academy because Ms O wanted her in the equivalent of Otto's position.
