Jeffrey EpsteinRoshan was a human baby that had been lost from his tribe and rescued by a trio of animals. Through a long and arduous quest conducted by the three, Roshan was reunited with his father. A young human baby, Roshan lived with his tribe during the days of the ice age and had seen very little of the world around him. Roshan was the son of a human tribe leader. During the events of his infancy, however, he saw and experienced much of the world, at the paws of three animals out to return him to his tribe, which he had been displaced from. One evening, during the days in which the weather began to grow colder, Roshan and his family were at their village, with RunarRoshan's father, teaching his young son to take his first steps with his wife Nadia. Unbeknownst to them or the rest of the tribe, they were being eyed by two tigersDiego and the pack leader, Sotothat evening, who conspired to take Roshan's life in retribution for Runar's hunting and killing of half their pack, using the sabers' skins to make clothing. The following morning, just before dawn, the saber pack had snuck into the camp to attack the humans, but were given away by the tribe's dogsand the majority of the sabers were thus engaged in a battle with the tribe's hunters while Diego, Soto's trusted lieutenant, snuck into Runar's tent and found Roshan fast asleep. At that moment, Nadia struck at Diego and ran off with a sleeping Roshan in her arms, running from the campsite and through a river. Reaching the waterfall at the end of the river, Nadia found herself cornered by the saber and, holding her baby tightly, jumped over the falls, her son in her grip. They were both found by Manny and Sid at the riverside, and using what little strength Nadia had left, she gave Roshan to Manfred and Sid in hopes that he would be safe with them. Sid suggested to return Roshan to his tribe. Reluctantly, the two accepted help from Diego, who offered to help track the humans to their settlement up north. As a young baby, Roshan was impressionable and had seen very little of the world. He does have a compassionate heart, easily warming up to the herd and comforting Manny as he learns to move on from his tragic past. Roshan's prime care is Sid, the only member of the group who initially has any interest in him, Manny being too cynical to care and Diego secretly planning to kill him. Manny, after his previous experience with humans, is reluctant to have anything to do with the baby, but eventually bonds with him. At the end of the movie, Roshan is reunited with his tribe. Runar is particularly happy to learn that the baby has learned to walk during his time with Manny, Sid, and Diego. As Roshan's family, Runar and Nadia care deeply for their child. Both are shown to go into great lengths to either protect or even avenge him. When Nadia is forced to flee from the campsite, she entrusts Manny to take care of him. Believing his wife and son to be dead, Runar seeks revenge. When he is reunited with his son by Manny, Runar immediately changes his demeanor. Manny was entrusted by Nadia to take care of her son. Despite this, he is reluctant to be associated with him. This is likely due to his past with the Neanderthals that hunted down his previous family. Soon enough, Manny warms up to him and calls him various nicknames and returns him to Runar. Sid is Roshan's primary caregiver throughout the movie. He is shown carrying him, feeding him, and attempting to change his diaper. While Sid does care for him, he will occasionally use Roshan for his own benefits. An example of this is when he uses Roshan to woo two fellow sloths at a mud bath. As a member of Soto's pack, Diego's main goal throughout the movie is to kidnap and give Roshan to Soto. He is shown chasing after Nadia during their attack. As Roshan was asleep at this time and is an infant, he does not recognize Diego later. Diego soon changes his mind after befriending the trio and instead warns them of Soto. For revenge for his fellow Saber-tooth tigers, Soto decides to hunt down and kill Roshan. He entrusts Diego with the task of kidnapping the baby which eventually backfires from Diego's betrayal. Sign In Don't have an account? Start a Wiki.

The following is a list of the characters in the Ice Age films, mentioned by a name either presented in the films or in any other official material. Each character includes a summary when possible, the voice actor or actors associated with the character, and a description of the character along with any aliases, spouses and the character's species. Manfred "Manny"is a woolly mammothin all five Ice Age films. His personality is shown to be aloof, grumpy, and standoffish, but is otherwise loving and courageous. In the first film, while passing through the icy cave, the herd discovers cave paintings of Manny with his wife and child, who were killed by humans ; this is a very sentimental moment for Manny, since he failed to protect them. At the end of the film, he becomes the proud father of a baby daughter named Peaches. In Ice Age: Continental Drifthe gets into an argument with his teenage daughter before being pulled away in by the drift with Diego, Sid and Granny. He and the team later encounter a group of pirates led by Captain Gutt. When the team escaped they destroy the ship and take Shira with them. This enrages the Captain who hunts them down. Later on, he is almost manipulated by sirens. A running gag for Manny, shown in four of the five films, is that if a certain character were to refer to him as fat, he would often deny it, saying that "his fur is what makes him look big" and that "it's poofy". Sidney "Sid" is a Ground Sloth in all five films who is dull-witted, talkative, friendly, carefree, naiveaccident-prone, patient and funny with a caring nature, and is voiced with a lateral lisp. Little is known from Sid's life other than that Sid once lived in a tree with other sloths that always wanted to leave Sid behind when the migration occurred, using several different ways to leave him behind. What is clear is that Sid's mother always told him that "bad news is just good news in disguise" prior to abandoning him for good. He accidentally starts a fire in the first film and learns how to do it properly towards the end; he also shows this skill in the second film, where he is worshiped by a tribe of "mini-sloths" who call him "Fire King" and try to sacrifice him. In the third film, he adopts a trio of baby T-Rexes, and is forcibly taken to the underground dinosaur land by their mother, requiring the others to come and save him. In the fourth film, it is revealed that his full name is Sidney, though this name was also used in a deleted scene of the first film. When he, Diego and Manny are on the ice and are forced up by a water spoutthey see a rainbow in the bright blue sky as he told them that "there is a rainbow at the end of every corner. A mechanical version of Sid appears in Robots during the miming scene. Sid was built along the form typical of ground sloths, short, brushy tail, clawed hands and feet, a long thin neck, ovular head with bulbous eye on both sides and a pair of buckteeth. Sid's right front tooth was slightly bigger than the left, similar to his right eye, which was also somewhat bigger than the left, both eyes of which were pale green. Sid's pelt was dirty and tan, and became brown when the fungus it carried dried out, Sid attributing the state of his pelt to his vegetarian diet, which he said led to a younger-looking pelt. In his films, Sid faints at certain times when he's getting hit - e. In the behind the scenes, the creators combined the traits of three-toed sloths and ground sloths while designing Sid and the other sloth characters. Diego is a saber-toothed cat found in all five of the films. He is Shira's love interest. He has a sardonic personality, although it is not intended to be nasty. He was sent by his pack to retrieve the human baby called Roshan; When he found Roshan in Manny and Sid's care, he pretended to lead them to the humans, but instead planned to lead them into an ambush by the pack. However, when Manny saved his life, Diego had a change of heart, confessing about the pack and sacrifices himself to help them escape. He was seemingly killed by the pack's leader, Soto, but survived and joined Manny and Sid on their travels. In the second filmhe was revealed to suffer from aquaphobiabut he eventually conquered it in order to save Sid, Crash and Eddie. In the third film, he began to fear that he was losing his predatory abilities from being in the "herd" too long, and considered staying in the underground dinosaur world with Buck. He changed his mind after managing to save the labored Ellie from a dinosaur attack. During the end credits, Diego and Shira are seen nuzzling each other showing that they have now become a couple.

Set during the days of the ice agethe film centers around three main characters - Manny Romanoa no-nonsense woolly mammoth ; Sid Leguizamoa loudmouthed ground sloth ; and Diego Learya sardonic saber-tooth tiger - who come across a human baby and work together to return it to its tribe. Additionally, the film occasionally follows Scrat, a speechless "saber-toothed squirrel" voiced by Wedge who is perpetually searching for a place in the ground to bury his acorn. Ice Age was originally intended as a 2D animated film developed by Fox Animation Studiosbut eventually became the first full-length animated film for the newly-reformed Blue Sky, which had been reshaped from a VFX house to a computer animation studio. Focus shifted from making an action-adventure drama film to a more comedy-oriented one, and several writers, such as Michael Berg and Peter Ackermanwere brought on to bring out a wittier tone. A saber-toothed squirrel known as Scrat attempts to find a place to store his acorn for the winter. Eventually, as he tries to stomp it into the ground, he inadvertently causes a large crack to form in the ice that extends for miles before setting off a large avalanche which nearly crushes him. He barely escapes but finds himself getting stepped on by a herd of prehistoric animals migrating south in order to escape the forthcoming ice age. Sid, a clumsy ground slothis left behind by his family and decides to move on by himself, but is attacked by two Brontotheres after ruining their meal and making them angry. Sid is soon rescued by Manny, a gruff woolly mammoth heading north, who fights the rhinos off and continues on his path. Sid joins Manny, not wanting to be alone and unprotected. Manny is annoyed by Sid's outgoing demeanor and wishes to migrate on his own, but Sid nonetheless continues to follow Manny. Meanwhile, Soto, the leader of a pack of saber-toothed tigerswants revenge on a tribe of neanderthals for killing half of his pack by eating the chief's infant son, Roshan,  alive. Soto leads a raid on the neanderthal camp, during which the Roshan's mother is separated from everyone else and jumps down a waterfall upon being cornered by Soto's lieutenant, Diego. As punishment for his failure to retrieve Roshan, Diego is sent to find and retrieve the baby. Later, Sid and Manny encounter the mother struggling out of the lake, dying from her plunge. The mother only has enough strength to entrust Roshan to Manny before she dies and disappears into the water. After much persuasion by Sid, they decide to return the baby, but when they reach the neanderthal settlement, they find it deserted. They meet up with Diego, who convinces the pair to let him help by tracking the neanderthals. The four travel on, with Diego secretly leading them to Half-Peak where his pack is waiting to ambush them. After encountering several misadventures on their way, the group reaches a cave with several cave paintings. There, Sid and Diego learn about Manny's past and his previous interactions with the neanderthal hunters, in which they slaughtered his family, consisting of his mate and child, leaving Manny a depressed loner. Later, the group almost reaches their destination, Half-Peak, only to encounter a forming river of lava. Manny and Sid, along with Roshan, make it across safely, but Diego ends up hanging on a cliff, about to fall into the lava. Manny saves him, narrowly missing certain death by falling into the lava himself. The herd takes a break for the night, and Roshan takes his first walking steps towards Diego, who starts to have a change of heart about his mission.
