- Akaelae, Tae
- Full name
- Taema Akaelae
- Wolf (Genetic Elite)
- White fur all over. Wears hair in a ponytail from her crown.
- Donnvan Akaelae (father) and Zaeus Akaelae (mother)
- Efram (brother), Ravon (brother), Darius (brother), Kea (identical twin sister).
Together with Kea, these ten-year-olds are a force to be reckoned with in pulling pranks (dying Chatin's hair white, placing smoke bombs on Galen, etc.) and just plain sneaking off somewhere, much to Darius' extreme discomfort.
Darius took them to the Mars Academy when their parents died and had them kept in the dark about it. They were eventually told the truth and had to struggle with the concept that they will never see their parents again.
In the later comics of Campus Safari, they are playing with their toy Shivae when Marcus' griffin, Galen, attempts to steal Tae's favorite Shivae, Twilight, but they manage to capture her, (Campus Safari, strip 531) and 'punish' her by doing her up in makeup and bows, (Campus Safari, strip 532) then giving her a silly name (Princess Puffy Cloudy Cotton Candy Blossom Rose, or Prinny Puffytail for short). (Campus Safari, strip 536) Finally they would place glitter smoke bombs on her and watch the ensuing hilarity. (Campus Safari, strip 539)(Campus Safari, strip 543)
Darius would catch them and punish them further by having all their toys taken away from them. (Cesilee's Diary, strip 85) They would sneak away from him once again when he is busy with Jules and she is sent to find them and take them back to his quarters. (Cesilee's Diary, strip 94) In their attempt to hide from Jules, Kea loses all her Shivae through a rip in her bag. (Cesilee's Diary, strip 97) This creates a trail for Jules to find them. (Cesilee's Diary, strip 98) She tells them a story involving infamous horror movie characters, Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees. This frightens them into behaving, cleaning up the place, and going straight to bed, where they are left huddling together in fear under the blankets. (Cesilee's Diary, strip 104)
- She is the more cautious of the pair (such as having advised Kea against putting glue in Darius' fur gel (Campus Safari, strip 529)) and perhaps being a little more mature about certain "matters" (such as letting Kea know when she is older about what Cesilee was doing with Marcus (Campus Safari, strip 544)).
