Sabal “Sherpa” Bhandari is an 11-year-old Hydro-Hawk gunner, and teams with Ian Thomas. He has a full head of thick, dark hair and a perfect, white smile. He is from Darjeeling in the West Bengal State of India. His father had traveled from Nepal to attend St. Joseph’s College, where he met Sherpa’s mother. Sherpa’s father studied physics, but later decided to become a mountain guide. “I am named after a group of brave Himalayan people from my father’s land,” Sherpa replied, proudly. “Sherpas are great mountaineers.” Sherpa has a great personality, and is the perfect teammate for Ian Thomas.
