— Aunt Arctic

Aunt Arctic, also known by her EPF codename and title, The Director, is a famous news reporter and the editor in chief of the Club Penguin Times. In addition to the informative roles that come with being a news reporter, Aunt Arctic offers her services to the Elite Penguin Force to organize and plan operations so that they, with their efforts combined, can protect the island from threats like Herbert P. Bear.

Ask Aunt Arctic[]

Ask Aunt Arctic is Aunt Arctic's advice column located on the lower right-hand side of the Club Penguin Times. The column answers many questions submitted by penguins with names crafted in relevancy to the question. On special occasions, Aunt Arctic will allow other famous penguins to "host" her column by changing it to "Ask [insert character name here]". Some examples of this are "Ask Rockhopper",[1][2] "Ask Sensei",[3][4] and "Ask Gary".[5]

Appearances in PSA Missions and Operations[]

Aunt Arctic is a key character in Penguin Secret Agency Mission PSA Mission 1: Case Of The Missing Puffles and one of the figureheads of mission 10, mission 11, and Operation: Blackout.

Case Of The Missing Puffles[]

Main article: PSA Mission 1: Case Of The Missing Puffles

In case of the missing puffles, two of Aunt Arctic's puffles have gone missing. In an effort to find them, she employs the help of a newly recruited agent to track down and return them to her home. The agent asks her multiple questions to detail what happened to her puffles. Eventually, the agent leaves and, once the agent eventually does return the puffles to her, she thanks them.[6]

Waddle Squad[]

Main article: PSA Mission 10: Waddle Squad

While not visibly appearing in the mission, Aunt Arctic, now disguised as "The Director" briefs the members of the "waddle squad" on their mission to capture Herbert P. Bear. After Rookie's outburst that revealed the PSA's possession of the "Golden Puffle", The Director appeared on a screen before proceeding to greet the agents and give them the overview of the plan.[7][8]

Operation: Blackout[]

The Director was the figurehead and operation leader for Operation: Blackout. First she briefed the agents on the situation, saying that "Herbert had began stealing the sun" and without it they "would all freeze." She proceeded to guide the penguin through a majority of Herbert's security systems; giving them useful items such as the Herbert Costume to bypass cameras and other optical based defences.[9][10]

Despite her efforts, however, she was eventually captured by Herbert and his crab army. However, thanks to her guidance prior, the player eventually freed her along with other members of the Elite Penguin Force. After the smoke from the explosion cleared, The Director revealed herself to be Aunt Arctic before moving to the HQ.[9][11]

Aunt Arctic is the Director of the EPF. After keeping her secret identity hidden for so long, she finally reveals it once you complete all 6 steps of Operation: Blackout.

In the past, it was believed that many other penguins, such as Unknown Band member and Rory were the Director. This has finally been proven false after Operation: Blackout.

The Director has worked for many agencies such as Penguin Secret Agency, Elite Penguin Force and Elite Penguin Force Resistance. The EPF Resistance was a co agency to the EPF which has been opened due to Herbert destroying the EPF Command during Operation: Blackout. It closed after Operation: Blackout.
