Stripeback (Juovaselkä) has a personal color with a white stripe on his back. That’s where his name derives from. Juova is the Finnish word for a stripe, and selkä means back. So, his name translated to English is Stripeback.
Stripeback is a nice guy who gets along with the other reindeer and most people. He is well-tamed, calm and quiet, but keeps a bit distance for strangers, just in case. He is starting his career as a sleigh reindeer and is among the most promising young reindeer in that career. He has already done some good tours with travelers.
Stripeback has grand antlers, and he usually drops those off late in Spring. That gives him one of the leading positions among the sleigh team.
