House of Anubis is a mystery series series airing on Nickelodeon, based on the Flemish-Dutch series Het Huis Anubis. The series tells the story of Nina, an American student who earns a scholarship to a fancy English BoardingSchool and becomes a member of the House of Anubis, believed to be the nicest house on campus. On the day of Nina's arrival, another student named Joy is pulled out of the school under mysterious circumstances, prompting her roommate, Patricia, to suspect that the school faculty are enacting some kind of conspiracy.

!!'''Nina [=Martin=]''' (portrayed by Nathalia Ramos)
[[quoteright:194:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Nina_Martin_4362.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:194: Hi! I'm Nina, from America!]]
The NewTransferStudent at the BoardingSchool. She tries to solve the mystery of the House of Anubis and find the treasure hidden within.
* AllLovingHero: She's kind, generous, and forgiving towards everyone, whether it's the {{Jerkass}} who toremented her for no reason, the ''other'' {{Jerkass}} who wrote an attack article about her, or even the house master who nearly got her killed. Even [[BigBad Rufus]] seems to merit a certain amount of concern from her. (Notice how worried for him she sounds when trying to talk him out of using the mask.)
%% * {{Bookworm}}
* ButtMonkey: Despite being TheHero and [[spoiler: TheChosenOne]], she falls into this too. Poor girl has had to deal with [[spoiler: her new friend Sarah dying in Season 1]], ''all'' of her friends being threatened by a vengeful ghost in Season 2, and said ghost [[spoiler: nearly killing her grandmother]] just to pressure her into cooperating.
* CatchPhrase: "I'm Nina, from America." Lampshaded by Patricia:
--> '''Patricia:''' She's American and she's totally obsessed with it. She said it like a hundred times.
* [[spoiler: TheChosenOne]]: Revealed in the season finale. {{Lampshaded}} by Jerome:
--> '''Jerome:''' It would be [[spoiler: the American]], wouldn't it?
** Fabian even suspects it before the season finale, when Nina tells him that [[spoiler: she was able to find the next clue because she heard voices coming from the chandelier saying where in the chandelier it was.]]
--> '''Fabian:''' [[spoiler: I think they were wrong about Joy being the ChosenOne.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: She has some moments of this.
-->'''Victor:''' What were you doing in the cellar?\\
'''Nina:''' [[SarcasmMode Just remembering all the fun times we had down there.]]
* DumbBlonde: {{Averted}}. Nina has a good head on her shoulders.
* GenreSavvy: Shows shades of this in Season 1, becomes this fully by Season 2. She knows that when a clue is too easy it means [[BigBad Victor]] already solved it before they did.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Nina has dirty blonde hair and is one of the nicest people on the show. See the entry for MessianicArchetype.
* TheHero: She's the main character of the show as well as [[spoiler: the ChosenOne.]]
* [[spoiler: ItSucksToBeTheChosenOne]]: [[spoiler: She and her friends were cursed, her grandmother was nearly killed off, she started hearing voices, saw ghosts, and was almost taken to the afterlife with an evil spirit, all because of her identity as the Chosen One.]]
* JustFriends: [[OfficialCouple With Fabian.]]
* KidDetective: Starts a whole group of them.
* MessianicArchetype: Nina being concerned about Victor's health when Senkhara threatens him pushes her into this territory. She takes it UpToEleven in the finale, when she pleads with Rufus not to put on the Mask of Anubis and fights to prevent him from doing so. The whole time, she gives off the impression that she's worried about what will happen to him if he puts on the Mask. You can't get much more Messiah-like than being concerned about the well-being of a [[TheSociopath sociopath]] who would just as soon kill you as look at you.
* NiceGirl: She's one of the nicest people in the House.
* NewTransferStudent: At the beginning of the series, she's the new student, just transferred from America.
* TheParagon: Nina is explicitly referred to as this during Season 2.
* ScholarshipStudent: She came to the boarding school on a scholarship.
%% * SitcomArchenemy: With Joy.
* TownGirls: The Neither to Amber's Femme and Patricia's Butch.
* WeirdnessMagnet: Arguably, all of the weird things started happening when she showed up. She lampshades this in an episode.
--> '''Nina:''' I've brought nothing but trouble since I've come here!
* TheWoobie: See the entry for ButtMonkey above.

[[caption-width-right:286:"Would you fancy a walk?"]]
A student in the House of Anubis who is nice to Nina right from the beginning.

* {{Adorkable}}: Nina even calls him cute and "geek chic" in her diary.
* BerserkButton: Just try and harm Nina, or any of his friends, and Fabian will not be happy. Angry!Fabian is something else especially in the S3 premiere.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: See BerserkButton above.
* BookWorm: In his EstablishingCharacterMoment, he's even seen reading a book on brain science. Additionally, he's arguably the smartest one of everyone in Sibuna.
%% * TheHero: Shares this role with Nina.
%% * DoggedNiceGuy: Implied to be this for Joy [[spoiler: before Nina came along anyway]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Towards the end of Season 2 [[spoiler: justified as his and all of his friends lives were at stake.]]
* JustFriends: [[OfficalCouple With Nina.]]
* KidDetective: As part of Sibuna, this is to be expected.
* NiceGuy: He's the nicest person to Nina right from the start of the series.
* NoRespectGuy: Seriously even when he helps solve major clues Patricia still mocks the heck out of him.

[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Patricia_Williamson_4086.jpg]]

Joy's friend and former roommate. Patricia is suspicious of the circumstances under which Joy disappeared, especially since Joy left behind her cell phone and her favorite stuffed animal.

* AffectionateNickname: Eddie calls Patricia "Yacker." This started as an insult, but took on a different meaning when [[spoiler: they started dating.]]
* AlphaBitch: Starts out as this. Still is this sort of in Season 2.
** LovableAlphaBitch: She's nice enough to members of Sibuna, though.
* BelligerentSexualTension: [[spoiler: With Eddie.]]
* ClingyJealousGirl: She is ''not'' happy about KT and Eddie spending time together.
* ConspiracyTheorist: [[spoiler: She's the only one in the House to suspect that something wasn't right about Joy's disappearance, and that the teachers and the police were in on it. Unusually for this trope, she was right]].
* FieryRedhead: She has reddish hair and she's very short-tempered.
* HairTriggerTemper: It doesn't take much to make her angry.
* HeelFaceTurn: She's initially very hostile toward Nina, as she suspects Nina of being involved in Joy's disappearance, but she later realizes that she's wrong and apologizes for her behavior. However, it takes her several episodes to completely trust Nina.
* JerkAss: She's not particularly nice, especially in the first few episodes, when she suspects Nina of being involved in Joy's disappearance.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: ...but she is ultimately good, and shows moments of caring towards Nina, Fabian, and Mara.
* KidDetective: Expected, as she is a part of Sibuna, considering they all have to look for clues to find the treasure.
* TheLancer: Shares this role with Fabian.
* [[spoiler: PolarOppositeTwins]]: [[spoiler: While Patricia is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, her twin sister Piper is very sweet.]]
* TownGirls: The Butch to Nina's Neither and Amber's Femme.
* {{Tsundere}}: Type A toward Eddie.

** LovableAlphaBitch: She's generally nice to everyone else in the House.
* TheBigGirl: She's arguably the strongest of Sibuna.
* BookDumb: She's not good at school.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Towards Mick at first. She's not thrilled that Mara likes Mick and this causes a rift in their friendship. But she later helps Mick win Mara back when Mara breaks up with him because he bribed the vote counter to ensure that Mara won.
* CloudCuckoolander: She's usually got her head in the clouds and is a bit ditzy.
%% * TheChick
* DumbBlonde: She doesn't seem very smart, and is perceived this way by many people.

** She even goes so far as to almost reveal Sibuna's plan to Mr. Winkler.
* TheDitz: Amber isn't very book smart...
** GeniusDitz: ...but she does come up with some pretty good ideas during the search for the treasure.
* {{Flanderization}}: Her ditziness was definitely played up in Season 2.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: She's generally very sweet.
* HiddenDepths: Revealed to be good at ping pong.
** She's also come up with some pretty good ideas during the search for the treasure in season 1.

* TownGirls: The Femme to Nina's Neither and Patricia's Butch.

!!'''Alfie Lewis''' (portrayed by Alex Sawyer)

[[caption-width-right:255:"Why would anyone want to be subtle?"]]
Another student in the House of Anubis. He has a crush on Amber.

* ButtMonkey: He's sometimes the butt of his friends jokes, has been pranked numerous times by his best friend, [[spoiler: was locked in the cellar, nearly died from poisoning, de-aged/shrunk,]] was pushed around by his girlfriend, [[spoiler: would have died at the end of season 1 if Fabian didn't switch the elixir,]] and the list goes on.
* ClassClown: He goofs off and gets in trouble all the time.
%% * DoggedNiceGuy: To Amber.
* NoRespectGuy: While bumbling he does help out the team in the search for insert-macguffin-here but either doesn't get much credit or isn't brought up again. Heck even when it's just being a good gesture regardless it's forgotten about quick.
* TheChick: Shares this role with Joy.
* ThePrankster: He and Jerome regularly pull pranks. Occasionally, it does get in the way of Sibuna, such as when he and Jerome decide to scare them when they're looking for clues in the cellar.
* WellDoneSonGuy: His parents, particularly his father, look down on him so much that he tries so hard to impress them when they come over.

!!'''Eddie [=Miller=]''' (portrayed by Burkely Duffield)

A new American student in Season 2. Seems to be a bit of a troublemaker, not to mention being ridiculously flirtatious.

* BelligerentSexualTension: [[spoiler: Also with Patricia]].
* BrilliantButLazy: Starts off seeming like he's on the low end of the IQ scale, but then later reveals himself to speak fluent French, implying a certain level of intelligence. Most likely, the reason he doesn't post the same kind of grades as Mara is because he slacks off.
* ChekhovsGunman: He appears in Season 2 as a new student from America and a LoveInterest for Patricia, but in the season finale, he turns out to be [[spoiler: the Osirian, counterpart and guardian to The ChosenOne.]]
* [[spoiler: TheChosenOne]]: At the end of Season 2, he turns out to be [[spoiler: The Osirian, the one destined to protect the descendant of Amneris.]]
* [[spoiler: DarkIsNotEvil: Eddie is the symbolic darkness to Nina's light, but is still one of the good guys.]]
* DeadpanSnarker
