Karl Uhl, who commonly prefers to be called Señor Uhl, is a Spanish teacher (despite being Austrian) and the current interim principal of Arcadia Oaks High

History

Backstory

How he found a career is unknown, but he seems to be well-travelled. He is Austrian.

Physical Appearance

He is a large man, square-jawed and neat, with blonde hair and blue eyes. He tends to wear professional attire.

Personality

Señor Uhl is as unforgiving as he is clueless. Though it is often with a great error that fans say he is a heartless monster of a teacher, he sports the basic support for his school and for his town, and he genuinely cares about the needs and educational experience of his students. The only strange thing about him is his rather strong bond with his...pick-up truck?

However, in 3Below, he begins to display a more humane side when he sympathizes with Aja and Krel when they tell him that they had escaped the chaos of a coup in their "home country" of Cantaloupia, vowing that Arcadia Oaks High will be a haven for them until they can return home. He defends them against Birdie, the special advisor of the school board, when she suggests that they be removed from the school due to being 'illegal aliens,' protesting against micro-aggressions and stating that they 'do not use that word [illegal].' 

Powers & Abilities

Abilities

  • Multilingual: Uhl is heard speaking English and Spanish, though given the fact that he's Austrian, he can also speak German.

Weaknesses

  • Mortality: As a human, Señor Uhl is highly vulnerable to injuries, sicknesses, old-age, and even death.
  • Metal: Uhl receives serious allergic reactions to metal, including Gaggletacks.

Equipment

Relationships

Lenora Janeth

They seem to get along well. In Part Two of 3Below, it can be assumed that Uhl has a crush on Janeth, yet she appears to be oblivious to his affection. 

Coach Lawrence

Uhl and Lawrence seem to get along well.

Toby Domzalski

Bertha "Birde" Flanagan

Señor Uhl seems to have a mutual yet rocky relationship with Bertha Flanagan. He became incensed at her attempt to remove Aja and Krel on xenophobic grounds, and she threatens his job in response. Uhl was pleased when she disappeared, unaware that she was an alien sent to kill Aja and Krel and was killed by Varvatos.

Aja and Krel Tarron

At first, Uhl saw Aja and Krel as troublemakers, but when Aja explains that they came to Arcadia because their "home country" got caught in a coup, he shows them compassion and vows to make Arcadia Oaks High a safe haven for them. He supports this vow by continually defending them against xenophobia.

Trivia

  • In "Flying the Coop," it is revealed that Señor Uhl's first name is Karl, which is of German origin, despite him being Austrian. 
  • As revealed in The Book of Ga-Huel, Uhl is highly allergic to metal, including gaggletacks (which is why he coats his car keys with clear lip stick so they don't make physical contact with his skin).
    • It's also revealed that he had a long-distance girlfriend in Spain named Susannah (which would explain his bond with his pick up truck which he calls Susannah). In 3Below, he admits to being attracted to Miss Janeth, which implies that he and Susanna may have broken up.
