|“|| I hate going to town!
Boris in the first film, had great faith in Balto when he left to save Nome. Boris also was afraid of the local bully Steele. In the 2nd film, Boris told Balto that even though he didn't want to believe it, Aleu would be half-wolf. Boris was also revealed to be superstitious and believed in mystical stuff. In the 3rd film he developed a crush on a goose named Stella, but lied about flying with her to hide his fear of heights. His habit is gulping nervously. So he is bad-tempered, outgoing, responsible, independent, serious, benevolent, organized, rational, intellectual, supportive, fatherly, protective, understanding, sympathetic, loving, careful, faint-hearted and feisty.
Boris has the appearance of the average snow goose with white feathers with black tipped wings, tail-feathers and eyebrows, but has a little tuff on his head, and a slight crick in his neck. Also visible is his bags from age under his eyes, making him look quite old.
(Simon Wells intended) Boris was an outcast (like Balto) but he once found Balto and raised him.
(Phil Weinstein intended) Little is known about his past.
Boris would be seen alongside Balto all the time. When Balto would go to town he would convince him to go with him but when they get there Boris would be worried very much on what's gonna happen to him. He later almost be beheaded until Balto ends up saving him but he is still worried about Balto and him wanting to be a sled dog. When he is separated from Balto he tries to find him only to see him running alongside the sled dog race and would scare him but when Balto is on the sidelines he shouts at him to just be on the sidelines. Once they reunit Boris wants to tell Balto something but he pauses but when Balto hears Rosy calling Jenna he would run to her then Boris would fallow him. Once they leave they would be antagonized by Steele but when Boris saw Balto getting angry he rushes in tells him that they should just leave. When they're back Boris sees a wolf pack and Balto sees them but the wolf pack offers Balto a part of their pack but Balto refuses then Boris wonders what is he. When they're back to their place, Boris sees Balto depressed and he tries to cheer him up but it's doesn't work then Boris gets tired of trying to cheer him up. Later, Balto was looking at something then Boris is what is he looking and he replied "Jenna". He tells that he should go make a move but then Balto says that she isn't his type then Boris wonders why he said that but he finds out that is because of the wolf hybrid, Boris almost admits that he would look handsome to be a hybrid as he wishes to be half-eagle. He would later go with Balto in the try-outs for fastest dog but he then tells Balto that regardless Balto would NEVER be in the team even if he did or didn't win but as he sees him entering himself he is sadden and wishes him luck. When he is specting the race, he sees a dog kicking Balto by the face and causing him to lose but Boris saw that and calls him out but no ones can hear him after that he sees Balto trying to get back to first place and he tries to do shortcuts to do so and Boris is happy to see Balto doing that to win the race. Later, Balto wanted to go to find Steele but Boris was worried that what would Steele do to him but Balto then shows Rosy to Boris then Boris changed his mind and wanted to go to save the town. As he follows Balto to find Steele's team, he'll be involved in Muk and Luk's games but he'll get angered by it then he unnoticed that a bear was behind him, he screams loud which would worry Balto then he'll have his life saved by Balto. But when Balto was getting overpowered by the bear he was scared to see him like that but his live would be saved by Jenna, as Jenna was attacking the bear, Boris was almost stomped by the bear but then Balto fights back but then is pushed away to a frozen lake. Boris was scared that Balto is on a frozen lake then later the lake was cracking from the Bear's weight as it was to heavy. As the cracking were surrounding Balto, they rushed to save him but they were later to recue him and was flipped down underwater. Boris worries about him til he sees Muk and Luk dive in the water and he begins to worry about them also as they can swim and Jenna would be surprise that hearing polar bears that can't swim. He tries to put his head underwater but he doesn't see anyone then they begin to hear crackings behind them and they see Muk and Luk with Balto, Boris and Jenna rush to them but Boris slips and begins to come to them fast which would cause Luk to put too much pressure on Balto. As Balto stand up he rushes towards Balto and tries to get him to breathe but he was still alive, he was worried about him but is glad to see him okay. After all that, Muk and Luk were ordered by balto to bring Jenna back home, Balto advise them not to take a break but Balto insist that he should go with them but he thought Balto needs help but Balto insures him that they needed more help than him. Boris agrees to go with them back home but he tells Balto that dogs can't do it alone but maybe wolves can. When Boris bring Jenna home with Muk and Luk, they went to the place were dogs talk about that's important and Jenna tells them that Balto wants to help them but they mock this. However, it pretty unsumed that they saw Steele come in and were shocked to see him, maybe also shocked to hear about Steele told about Balto and what he did. Later, Boris worries about Balto along with Muk and Luk but Boris hears a howl and recognize that it's Balto and looks back and happily announces that Balto's back.
