Flipflop is a tortoise spirit currently aiding Isabel Guerra. His design borrows heavily from an "urban youth" aesthetic, wearing its shell as a baseball cap, a cardboard box for replacement shell, and what seems to be a garbage bag for pants. He is bashful and has a low self-esteem.
Flipflop's hat is his actual shell, outgrown at some point, requiring him to adopt a cardboard box as a replacement. He also have at least two "sworn brothers" with superior powers whom they trained with under a teacher.
After losing the book containing her former partner, Isabel's grandfather offered her a red umbrella as a replacement tool. She accepted and brought her new tool with her to the school. This umbrella was the tool housing Flipflop, but the spirit only introduced himself to Isabel during her search for the body-stealing spirit Hijack. She was drawn into a heightened state and made an awkward introduction with the spirit and his powers.
Flipflop's only demonstrated power as of yet is flipping objects, which it is first seen using on himself to prevent getting stuck on his back. The flip is instantaneous, meaning no form of spinning or twisting occurs; in one instant the target object is oriented one way, and the next instant it's flipped.
- Flipflop's name is a portmanteau of 'flipping', 'hip-hop' and possibly the shoe 'flip-flop'.
- Flipflop being a tortoise with the power to flip may be inspired by the idea that a tortoise on it's back would be stuck with no way to right itself. The ability to flip would be useful for this scenario, as shown in the above image.
