In-depth character backgroundEdit
Hadji Singh is a close friend of Jonny Quest and Dr. Benton Quest's adopted son, found in the classic episode "Calcutta Adventure." Hadji studied yoga and eastern mysticism while growing up, gaining abilities such as body temperature and breathing regulation. He often exhibits a fatalistic, calculated outlook towards most situations, contrasted with Jonny's impulsiveness. He is considered to be Sikh from the turban and having "Singh" in his name.
Hadji is level-headed, smart and reserved, a foil to Jonny. Hadji also has mystical prowess and is skilled at hypnosis.
Also, due to his distant personality and tendency to hide his feelings, some fans consider him to be an iconic figure for "in closet" youth gays.
