Original Ghouls

     Frankie Stein 
Voiced By: Kate Higgins
Daughter of Frankenstein's Monster and his bride, mad scientists in this universe. In all continuities, she is stated to only be 15 days old at the start and attends high school as the "new girl". Plucky, fun-loving and klutzy, she is more often than not the main character.
  • Accidental Athlete: In "Fearleading Tryouts".
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: She has mint green skin.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Due to her tendency to fall apart in the least convenient moments.
  • Disney Death: In Freaky Fusion, she uses her own life force, or Spark, to take down a rampaging creation of her grandfather Viktor that's captured her friends and threatens to destroy them. Doing so however uses her up, and she's effectively dead until her friends and schoolmates pull together to recharge her.
  • Frankenstein's Monster: Her father.
  • Helping Hands: Frankieís hands whenever they fall off.
  • The Hero: She always changes the way things were for the better.
  • Idea Bulb: Variation. Her neckbolts often spark when she gets an idea.

  • NaÔve Newcomer: At first, but integrates well.
  • Sense Freak: With all the basic intelligence of the average 15-year old, yet little experience outside, everything is new to her, and she wants to experience it all. She learns more over time

  • Skunk Stripe: Alternating skunk stripes throughout her hair.

Voiced By: Debi Derryberry
The adopted daughter of Dracula. At 1600 years old she's peppy, sweet, and loves helping and being around her friends (and her boyfriend Clawd Wolf). Notable as being one of the only, if not the first, true vegetarian vampire, as she faints at the sight of blood and survives mostly on supplements and fruit, and shortly ran her own newsletter on the topic: V.A.M.P. - Vampires Advocating Meatless Protein. Diaries and other material heavily imply she wasn't always like this. After long being devoid of the powers granted to vampires, she received them in "Frights, Camera, Action".
  • A Day in the Limelight: She's the main star in "Frights, Camera, Action", and the plot centers around us learning some of Draculaura's history.
  • Afraid of Blood: Draculaura has a tendency to faint even at the mere mention of blood.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Her skin is light pink, with a hot pink heart birthmark on her right cheek.
  • The Atoner: Her diary actually implies that she is one. When her dad tells her that he wishes she'd return to "proper" vampire ways, she writes that she is resolved to never go back to how she was before.
  • Cute Little Fangs
  • The Ditz: To a very large degree, but she can occasionally show insight.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Many of her outfits show degrees of this.
  • Fan Nickname: Lala, about the only thing to take off from the Lisi Harrison books.
  • Friendly Neighborhood Vampire: Draculaura certainly comes across as one.
  • Fun with Acronyms: her newsletter "V.A.M.P." — "Vampires Advocating Meatless Protein."
  • Genki Girl: In spades.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Featured in many of her dolls.
  • Happily Adopted: As revealed in her second edition diary.
  • Hidden Depths: Draculaura's 2nd edition diary provides some tantalizing hints at quite the Dark and Troubled Past—her father, rather than the Dracula we know, is an even older master vampire (Bram Stoker's villain was a less powerful upstart who used her father's name to impress and terrorize locals til he fell prey to Laser-Guided Karma), who took in Draculaura (perhaps just Laura then) and her mother "when no one else would" over a thousand years ago.
    • The brief diary for her collector doll comes with a timeline— her father was the Roman soldier Gaius who fell in love with her mother Camilla, but he died in battle before she was born. Dracula, having known and been friends with Gaius' great grandfather moved his home to Dacia and took Camilla in. Draculaura was named in his honor at birth. In the year she turned 16, a plague swept the village they lived in and claimed Camilla's life. Fearful to lose Draculaura as well, Dracula turned her into a vampire.
  • Genki Girl
  • Girly Girl: To Lagoona's Tomboy.
  • Granola Girl
  • Kid-Appeal Character: Cute, cheerful, and iconically designed.
  • Military Brat: Her birth father and adoptive father both were in the Roman army. The former died in battle.
  • Missing Mom
  • Multicolored Hair: While usually black with pink streaks, it has been pink with black undertone, or black with yellow and pink streaks.
  • Odango: Her doll for the Fearleading 3-Pack sports odango pigtails.
  • Official Couple: with Clawd.
  • Older Than They Look: She's 1599 years old at the beginning of the series. A big show was made of her turning 1600 as it was used for both a doll collection/line (Draculaura's Sweet 1600) and it was the main event of the third animated special.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Not too different though, just vegetarian.
  • Perky Goth: Just about the happiest gothic lolita vampire you've ever seen!
  • Pointy Ears
  • The Protagonist: She's the leading character in the anime adaption.
  • Purple Eyes
  • Shout-Out: Her Elegant Gothic Lolita style and tattoo-like birthmark on her cheek recall Emilie Autumn.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: A frequent plot point for her, she used to be very boy-crazy. She now dates Clawd Wolf.
  • Vampire Vords: She can pronounce her Ws, at least, but she otherwise has a noticeable (and very cute) Hungarian/Romanian accent.
  • Vegetarian Vampire: Originally stated to be a vegan, but then changed to vegetarian.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: She can't even say the word blood without fainting (or nearly fainting).

     Clawdeen Wolf 
Voiced By: Salli Saffioti
Daughter of The Wolf Man. A fashionista and neophyte fashion designer, she's forthright and has a knack for looking into tough situations. Fiercely loyal to her friends, fiercely protective of her friends, and all-around fierce.
  • The Big Girl
  • Cute Little Fangs
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: While Clawdeen's features are consistently wolflike, she usually keeps her animalistic side under control... except during the full moon (when she becomes more daring and energetic than usual).
    • "Fur Will Fly" hinted the full moon was the trump card she used to beat Heath Burns (he didn't know that day was a full moon, and it gave her super-speed, beating him even with his head start).
  • The Fashionista: Notable in that she views fashion both as an art and in a business sense; she hopes to one day own her own fashion line, and plans her classes accordingly. It was even a major plot point in Scaris: City of Frights.
  • Gold Makes Everything Shinier: Few dolls of hers have been released without a gold accent.
  • The Nose Knows: It comes with being a werewolf. The [Trope Name] is even a family catchphrase.
  • The Rival: At first with Cleo, but they got over it.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair is constantly growing—and not just the hair on her head, leading her to have to pluck and wax continuously (she has to do so three times a day, as noted by her "Dawn of the Dance" itinerary). However, it also allows her to be more experimental with her hairstyles— shown in the doll lines with various lengths.
  • Southies: She and her sisters, but not her brother speak with a faint Bahston accent.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes
  • Talking To Herself: She and Cleo are voiced by the same woman, Salli Saffioti.
  • Unusual Ears: Wolf ears, on top of her head.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her Dawn of the Dance doll has a short acid green bob with brown in the back, while her Gloom Beach doll has purple hair to frame her face.
    • It's explained in-universe that the one benefit of Clawdeen's constantly growing hair is that it allows her to be very experimental with it, so in each doll of hers her hair undergoes a substantial color change.

     Lagoona Blue 
Voiced By: Laura Bailey
Daughter of the Sea Monster. A level-headed and laid-back character, Lagoona spends most of her time in the water (either in the ocean or the school's swimming pool) and is the gang's resident surfer girl and school swim captain. Amiable and helpful to almost everyone, she usually has to ground her friends if they get carried away. As a saltwater monster she frequently has issues with her freshwater boyfriend Gillington "Gil" Webber, because of his parents' prejudice towards her.
  • Australian Accent: Lagoona's an exchange student from "down under" ("Down under the sea, that is!").

  • Day in the Limelight: The 2016 TV special, Great Scarrier Reef, has her as the main character.
  • Fish People
  • Green Eyes: Drawn especially to look piscine.
  • Missing Mom: Lagoona is the daughter of Sea Monster, strongly implied to be the Gill-Man. Her mother was later revealed to be an ocean nymph with whom Lagoona has just as good as a relation as with her father. Only, ocean nymphs can't go far from their home, so while in the USA, only her dad can visit her.
  • Multicolored Hair: Lagoona has aqua blue streaks in her otherwise blonde hair due to the chlorine in the school's swimming pool, and in all doll releases this trend continues. Her Great Scarrier Reef release adds a hot pink streak.

  • Only Sane Woman: Lagoona is the most down-to-earth, level-headed member of the main group.

     Cleo De Nile 
Voiced By: Salli Saffioti
Daughter of the Mummy. Resident Alpha Bitch and head of the Fearleading squad, she's known mostly for her wealth and icy personality at school. In truth, she's quite sensitive and down to earth, but has been groomed to think of herself as better than everyone else.

  • Gold Makes Everything Shiny: Not a doll release of hers without a gold accent, and her favorite color (shared with Clawdeen) is gold.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: To go with her Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Cleo takes this to the highest level by having actual streaks of gold in her basic look's otherwise brown hair. All of her doll releases flaunt a splash of gold hair.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Cleo started out as a bit of a snob/bully and the series' Big Bad, but has progressed into a supportive friend, especially in the Breather Episode about Ghoulia and Dead Fast. She is now a part of the Original Ghouls, and has gone from Alpha Bitch to Lovable Alpha Bitch for good.
  • Hidden Depths: At first a Straw Character antagonist, her vulnerabilities and insecurities have now come to light. She's proud and domineering, but she's truly a princess of the people. In "Boo York, Boo York", it's shown in her heart she knows that as a queen-to-be, she must give the people what they want.
    • As of Season 3, she treats all of her friends as she does Ghoulia - caring and compassionate but still dominant.
    • The diary included in her 'Gloom and Bloom' release is a richly detailed account of her backstory and how her family came to be in their current form.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Her growth in becoming a nicer person comes to a head when she sends all ten-thousand of her royal servants to the comic auction that Ghoulia couldn't attend in order to win said comic for her. But, of course, the comic is slipped to Ghoulia discreetly, and Cleo tells the other ghouls not to let this info get around and ruin her rep.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Cleo can be quite stuck-up and mean to the ghouls, but is also happy to help them when there is a problem. She "secretly" thanks Ghoulia for all her help by getting her the rare Dead Fast comic.

  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: Cleo acts egocentric and temperamental, but when push comes to shove, she's a kind and loyal friend.

  • Older Than They Look: She's 5843 years old, "give or take a couple".
  • Rich Bitch
  • Royal Brat: Egyptian heritage, folks!
    • This behavior was drilled into her by her father whom she was entombed with for several thousand years. She's gotten much better, though.
  • Talking To Herself: She and Clawdeen are voiced by the same woman, Salli Saffioti.
  • True Blue Femininity: She exudes it more than the others.
  • "Well Done, Daughter" Gal: In "Ghouls Rule" and "Boo York, Boo York".
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Various releases give her teal or blue streaks, and in her Creepateria release it's got purple streaks.

     Ghoulia Yelps 
Voiced By: Audu Paden
Daughter of the Zombies. Despite only being able to speak zombie, she's widely known as the smartest girl in school. She is also Cleo's best friend (and all-around personal assistant).
  • '80s Hair
  • Adorkable: Totally. The Geek Shriek line plays this up.
  • Badass: As revealed in Unlife to Live. She single-handily solves ALL the problems in the school, but nobody knows...and she just appears to be sitting around.
    • And in "Boo York, Boo York" along with Abbey Bominable, is able to stop Astranova's entire ship from crashing into and obliterating Boo York City and possibly, the world.
  • Crossdressing Voice: Ghoulia's actually voiced by the producer/director of the series, Audu Paden.
  • Curtains Match the Window
  • The Dragon: To Cleo. She is the mostly in the first movie and the first season of the webisodes, but with Cleo having a Heel-Face Turn, Ghoulia gradually grows into her own character.
  • Fantastic Racism: In her diary, she implies that that zombies are not well liked for being hard to understand and their sluggish behavior. Ghoulia even buys a "Zombies are Monsters too" shirt to make a statement, but can't bear to wear it openly.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: "Freaky Fridate" has this happen with Cleo when Cleo accidentally touches one of Dad's idols that Ghoulia's holding.
  • Frozen Face: Though she can occasionally force a rather pained-looking Un-Smile, a groan, or even, in the case of the webisode "Mad Science Fair", a truly epic Slasher Smile that only manages to dodge being terrifying by happening as she finally gets back at Cleo for using her.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Not only is she the smartest ghoul in the school, but she once invented a two story tall trash-to-fuel recycling machine as a Mad Science Fair project. Also note the comet-stopping.
  • Good with Numbers: "Dodgeskull" shows her calculating in "Charlie-Vision" how best to take out a group of heckling classmates with a dodgeball. She gets them all and nails the lead heckler a few times for good measure. Despite the fact she should have lost the game the moment she dropped the ball.
  • Hollywood Hacking: Ghoulia can hack anything in a few seconds with her laptop, including satellites. Well, almost anything...she couldn't hack the gossip column to find out who was running it.
  • Hollywood Nerd: But also quite popular.
  • Intelligible Unintelligible: The zombie language is nothing more than groans, but the other monsters mostly understand her.
    • Until "Freaky Fridate," when Cleo accidentally swaps bodies with Ghoulia. Then Salli Saffioti voices Cleo-as-Ghoulia.
  • Meganekko
  • Morality Pet: To Cleo as her best friend.
  • Nerds Are Sexy: Even for a zombie nerd girl, she's quite a hottie.
  • Official Couple: With Slo Mo.
  • One of Us: In-universe; the 2011 Monster High San Diego Comic Convention doll is Ghoulia dressed in a custom version of the costume worn by her favorite superhero, Dead Fast, that she just happens to be wearing to Necro Con. She's also in the school's comic book club.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: Ghoulia can't speak anything other than zombie, but she happens to be the smartest student in school and prefers fast food over brains. Sometimes she might only do one major action but it makes or saves the day in each episode... and movie.
  • Phrase Catcher: "Ghoulia's right!" Pretty much every one of the main characters has said this at least once.
  • Shrinking Violet: The shyest among the ghouls.
  • The Smart Girl
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: From her first appearance on she became a hugely popular character and has been in a majority of the doll lines. At this point, she is either tied for the most doll versions with Frankie or even has a few more, thanks to playset and store exclusive dolls.
  • Talking To Herself: Audu Paden also does the voice for Slo Mo and Manny Taur, both of whom Ghoulia has spoken to (and the former of whom also happens to Ghoulia's boyfriend).
  • Techno Wizard: She's great with that laptop of hers.
  • Voice for the Voiceless: In the anime adaption, Ghoulia's pet owl, Sir Hoots-a-lot, speaks for her in lieu of Zombie moans.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: In various shades.

Student Bodies, etc.


     Abbey Bominable 
Voiced By: Erin Fitzgerald
Daughter of The Yeti. A foreign exchange student from the mountains who tends to unintentionally insult other monsters with her awkward grasp of the English language, along with other culture clashes.

     Spectra Vondergeist 
Voiced By: Erin Fitzgerald
The soft-voiced, but not necessarily soft-spoken daughter of ghosts. Introduced as a ruthless and tricky gossip columnist who maintained the "Ghostly Gossip"; she was shown to be misunderstood of the influence of her column, but kept it up. As of Haunted she fully saw the harm rumors could cause, and decided to become a trustworthy journalist. She renamed her column the "Gory Gazette" following this change.
  • A Day in the Limelight: In the special Haunted.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: White in the extremities, with transparent limbs.
  • Arc Villain: She's the primary antagonist of the Ghostly Gossip arc in the second season of the webisodes, causing much problems for the heroes/protagonist.
  • The Atoner: Implied with the ball-and-chain motif (see Shout Out). While it isn't clear what her "crimes" may have been, Spectra says in her profile that she "find[s] that it's unhealthy to focus on what one does wrong especially when contrasted with all the good one does in the unlife."
  • Chained by Fashion: Every doll and related playset release of hers heavily features chains.
  • Goth
  • Heel-Face Turn: From a malicious gossip to a dedicated, kind, and heroic trustworthy news source.
  • Hidden Depths: In Clawd's first diary, she features as a nuisance twisting rumors to attack him. It's shown in her own first diary with Ghoulia that she actually had a pretty rough familial past, left unclear for now. In the short story that comes with her figure, it's revealed that the reason she became a gossip was to deal with the stress she got from moving schools from Haunted High to MH.
  • Invisibility: Well, she is a ghost. It comes in handy when you're the school's resident gossip.
  • Larynx Dissonance: Her soft, childlike voice highly contrasts with her angular features and chained up punk style.
  • Malicious Slander: Subverted. Spectra never intended for her gossip column to harm anyone; she was just fascinated by the lives of the other ghouls and wanted to share their exploits with others, but was too shy to ask them for permission...or to ask them for the whole story, leading to a lot of misunderstandings from her only getting pieces of the story and then using her imagination to fill in the rest.
  • School Newspaper News Hound: When she was the gossip columnist.
  • Same Character, but Different: Her doll persona/diary narrative is a stark contrast to her webisode identity - Diary Spectra is malicious, rude and a compulsive liar while her webisode/TV special identity is actually as soft spoken and sweet as her profile claims.
  • Shout-Out: Her ball-and-chain motif is similar to the chains that Jacob Marley's ghost wore as a representation of his earthly sins.
  • Shrinking Violet: While her gossip column is famous, Spectra herself is painfully shy. This is further alluded to with her character's mostly-purple color scheme. Following heavy Character Development she's a lot more outspoken now.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Blue, with purple sclera.
  • Techno Wizard: Not even Ghoulia can hack into her blog!
  • Unreliable Narrator: Being the school gossip hound, she has this in spades. For example, while she claims in her first diary that she was once a royal, there's no way to tell if that's fact or fiction.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Violet with a hint of lavender.

Voiced By: Cindy Robinson
Daughter of The Phantom of the Opera. A bodacious character with a rockabilly style (think the 50s, but goth), she's a skilled musician— shown to skillfully play piano, violin, guitar and banjo. Tends to do her own thing most of the time, and won't hang with monsters unless they earn her respect.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Purple.
  • American Accents: Sports a southern accent with a noticeable drawl. It's justified by Word of God as her parents moved from France to New Orleans when she was little.
  • Cool Pet: Daddy-o Long legs, her guitar playing pet spider.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Her first mention was in Holt's diary. She's reappeared in Spectra's diary and Cleo's 2nd edition diary.
  • Fiery Redhead: She doesn't take well to being threatened, nor being talked about behind her back.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has scars along the left side of her face that she covers with a musical note mask. Apparently they go all the way down her body.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Shatters a crystal idol with her voice in "Monster Mashionals Part 2", and "Uncommon Cold" shows that even her sneezes can be supersonic.
  • Official Couple: With Johnny Spirit as of Haunted.
  • One of the Boys: May be this, as she says her best friends are Deuce and Holt.
  • Ship Sinking: She went out with Holt in the diaries, but because of Holt's temper, it didn't last long.
  • The Rival: Cleo initially sees her as this when it comes to Deuce, but Operetta isn't into him.

     Toralei Stripe 
Voiced By: America Young
A werecat who was introduced in the first episode of Volume 2. Her initial story was that when she got tired of Cleo's perfectionist attitude, she and the Werecat Twins left the fearleading squad, and later after seeing how well the squad was doing with Frankie, Draculaura and Clawdeen, she tried to rejoin only to be rejected by Cleo. In the Monster Mashionals storyline, Toralei leaked the Monster High routine to their rivals Smogsnort's Vampiric Academy as revenge, but failed to make them lose. She's later re-inducted to the squad, but gets suspended for cheating on a test. Her and the ghouls butt heads once more in Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love and Boo York, Boo York... but it doesn't end well either time, thanks to Villain Decay. She's now more of an occasional nuisance than a threat.

     Purrsephone and Meowlody 
Voiced By: America Young
Purrsephone & Meowlody, otherwise also known as the Werecat Twins, largely exist as a silent girl posse for Toralei.
  • A Day in the Limelight: In the special webisode, "Games Ghouls Play," with a pair of weremouse-twin brothers.
  • Always Identical Twins: Aside from the hair and their leg markings being on opposite legs. On their official artwork, their outfits are the same design, but in different colors with shoes that differ and different vest detail. Played more straight in the webisodes; they do little more than smirk at Toralei's shenanigans.
    • Averted in the diary. (See single-minded twins below.)
  • Cat Girls
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: In their single diary, Meowlody writes in black ink, while Purrsephone writes in blue ink.
    • Meowlody's white-haired. Purrsephone's the brunette.
  • Cool Scooter: The Wheelin' Werecats playset reveals they share one.
  • Girl Posse: To Toralei. They think of her as a sister.
  • Single-Minded Twins: Averted via the diary showing their differences: Purrsephone is slightly less likely to prank and has a desire to break away from her sister while Meowlody is much more chaotic and slightly more dominant.
  • Those Two Guys: Little to no dialogue between them.

     Nefera De Nile 
Voiced By: Wendee Lee
Cleo's malicious older sister who rejoices in asserting her authority over her younger sister and anyone else around. Along with Ramses De Nile in "Boo York, Boo York", she seeks to establish a dynasty with the Ptolemys to give her fabulous wealth and power— at the cost of her sister's happiness with Deuce.
  • Alpha Bitch: Even Toralei and Cleo cannot compare to Nefera's bitchiness.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: With Toralei and Ramses De Nile in "Boo York, Boo York".
  • Big Sister Bully: Very clearly enjoys tormenting Cleo and, based on how Cleo reacts to her, always has.
  • The Cheerleader: Was this during her tenure at Monster High, the captain in fact, before passing on the reins to Cleo.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: First mentioned in Clawd's first and Cleo's second diaries before making an appearance in the webisodes.
  • Establishing Character Moment: After making a grand entrance, she taunts and then blackmails her sister into doing her bidding after finding out about the party thrown behind their father's back. This is all within about ten seconds.
  • Foil: To Cleo de Nile: she's an example of what her younger sister could have been if she hadn't gained a sense of compassion.
  • The Glorious War of Sisterly Rivalry: Again, with Cleo. Even pushed forward by her father.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: In "Monster Mashionals Part 2" Nefera uses the family idols to get her team of fearleaders to win, but this prompts the catgirls to help Cleo as they learned their lesson from last time and wanted to win fairly this time around. Ghoulia shows Scary Murphy a video of Nefera cheating, and in turn Nefera is stripped of her previous awards, causing her to give an anguish-filled, glass-shattering scream in defeat.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout/Glass-Shattering Sound: When Ghoulia exposes her cheating to Scary Murphy, this is her reaction to Scary Murphy's judgment against her. And her scream in Boo York, Boo York makes the entire gala look at her.
  • Missing Mom
  • Purple Eyes
  • Rich Bitch: She puts Cleo's early nastiness to shame, and is shown in Boo York, Boo York to still not be satisfied with her massive wealth.
  • Villain Song: She shares one with her father in Boo York, Boo York.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Turquoise and black striped hair.

     Howleen Wolf 
Voiced By: America Young
Howleen is one of the many younger siblings in the wolf family and shares a room with Clawdeen. After being mentoned several times in diaries, she officially made her appearance in the second Monster High TV special Fright On. She was released as a doll in a 2-pack with Clawdeen in early 2012.

     Headless Headmistress Bloodgood 
Voiced By: Laura Bailey
The Headmistress of Monster High, who tries to balance doing what's best for the school, and encouraging her students to be themselves. She is often seen in the company of her horse Nightmare. Bloodgood and Nightmare had a doll release in late Spring, 2013.
  • Badass Longcoat
  • Cool Horse: Nightmare, despite being scary-looking at first, falls into this.
  • Headless Horseman: The obvious inspiration.
  • Losing Your Head: Regularly removes her head and puts it back on.
  • Multicolored Hair: Black and violet.
  • Not So Stoic: Mainly firm and unshakable, she can sometimes crack up. In a more serious example, the story with her figure goes a little into her character as a teenager, and her ordeals with finding Nightmare, showing a less self-assured Bloodgood than the one we know.
  • Only One Name: No first name's been revealed for Headmistress Bloodgood.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Despite being strict when it comes to the rules of the school, she encourages her students to take chances and be themselves, sometimes even directly involving herself in their actions/antics.

     Iris Clops 
Voiced By: Paula Rhodes
Iris is a sweet, friendly cyclops ghoul who suffers from severe clumsiness that's probably due to her lack of depth perception, but she blames it on her not looking where she's going. She is also very passionate about science, particularly astronomy. She is currently dating Manny Taur, despite his seeming lack of romanticism.

     Scarah Screams 
Voiced By: Erin Fitzgerald
Daughter of the Banshee.

     C.A. Cupid 
Voiced By: Erin Fitzgerald
The daughter of Eros, she runs the school's love advice radio show and is featured in the 2012 special "Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love?". She has a doll sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores and was later re-released with a diary. Currently transferred to Ever After High.
  • A-Team Firing: Her freaky flaw is her seriously bad aim, which was a plot point in the special.
  • Foil: To Abbey. C.A. encourages people who follow her radio show to flirt and laugh at the other person's jokes even if they aren't funny, while blunt, outspoken Abbey says they should just be brutally honest.
  • Happily Adopted: Reveals this in an interview with the official Monster High Tumblr. Her true monster heritage is unknown to everyone, herself included.
  • Overly Long Name: Alludes to this being the reason that she goes by C.A.: "I use my initials because my name is scary long, hideously unpronouncable and you know you're just going to call me 'Cupid' anyway."
    • Confirmed in the diary, where we learn that it stands for Chariclo Arganthone.
  • Put on a Bus: That drove her to Ever After High.
  • Time Abyss: She's as old as teenage love.
  • The Matchmaker: Her hobby.
  • The Reveal: She is the reason that Cleo & Clawd were a couple for a short time— she mistakenly believed they were meant to be together.

     Rochelle Goyle 
Voiced By: Erin Fitzgerald
The daughter of Scarisian gargoyles, she's incredibly protective of her friends.
  • Cute Bruiser: A pastel style and a lilting french accent, and hard to beat on a roller derby maze track... for monsters.
  • Living Statue
  • Multicolored Hair: Pink hair with aqua blue streaks.
  • Older Than They Look: She's 415. Gargoyle aging!
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: In her diary, she develops a crush on Deuce after he accidentally runs into her and, after getting his sunglasses knocked off, explains that his stone gaze does not work on gargoyles and basilisks. She knows that Deuce and Cleo are an item, but this does not stop her from getting her pet, Roux, to steal Deuce's casketball in order to lure Deuce to her. Though nothing more than talking occurred between Deuce and herself, Rochelle does admit to feeling somewhat guilty afterwards. She's reunited with her actual boyfriend, Garrott Du Roque, in Scaris: City of Frights.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Pink.
  • Winged Humanoid
  • Your Cheating Heart: Subverted. Crushed on Deuce despite having a boyfriend (Garrott) still in Scaris— but he'd long since stopped writing her, so in her mind he'd left her.

     Venus McFlytrap 
Voiced By: Julie Kliewer
Daughter of the Plant Monster. By her own description, she's a nature-loving eco-punk — which makes sense, considering her scaritage. Dedicated to promoting recycling and going green.

     Robecca Steam 
Voiced By: Julie Kliewer
The robot daughter of a missing Mad Scientist.

     Wydowna Spider 
Voiced By: Erin Fitzgerald
Daughter of the Arachne. Introduced playing a semi-villainous role in the Polterghoul's story.

     Amanita Nightshade 
Voiced By: Heather Mosieve
A plant monster born from the seed of the Corpse Flower, an extremely rare flower which only blooms every 1300 years, Amanita is very beautiful but also very selfish. She has a history with Cleo de Nile's family and Deuce's mother Medusa.
  • Birds of a Feather: With her past owner Nefera de Nile, as both are incredibly narcissistic and obsessed with their own beauty.
  • It's All About Me: She seems honestly confused when people don't worship her and do everything she asks of them.
  • It's Personal: Cleo's grudge against her. She could have saved Cleo's family from the tomb but pretty much forgot about them entirely once she was out.
  • Narcissist: The thought of thinking about other's needs before hers seems like an utterly alien concept to her, to the point that it's almost a case of Blue and Orange Morality.
  • Meaningful Name: Amanita is also the name for the genus of some of the most toxic mushrooms in the world. Well fitting her toxic personality.
  • Never My Fault
  • Only Friend: To Nefera while she and Cleo and their father were trapped in the tomb. Also lists her BFF as "Amanita Nightshade", so she's apparently her own only friend.
  • Plant Person
  • Sticky Fingers: Stole Cleo's clothes when they were both in the tomb, various makeup items from the other ghouls at varying times, and the entirety of the contents of Draculaura(a fashion-loving 1600 year old vampire)'s closet, while in the same room as her and all of her friends.
  • Third-Person Person: Amanita Nightshade speaks/writes in third person all the time, even in Amanita's diary and profile.
    You want Amanita to run? Oh no no no! Monsters run to Amanita Nightshade or for Amanita Nightshade. Amanita does not run.
  • Valley Ghoul: Speaks with this accent.

     Gooliope Jellington 
A giant goo girl adopted by circus folk. More comfortable there with the circus folk than in the outside world where she's odd even by monster standards, she nevertheless ends up at Monster High. Not inspired by any particular monster, but a spiritual descendent of creatures like The Blob.
  • Circus Brat: Raised by the circus; in her diary she also talks about the trope of The Runaway who wants to join the circus, saying they wouldn't be so eager if they knew how much downtime and hard work goes into being part of the show.
  • Doorstop Baby: Of a sort.
  • The Freakshow: Her circus family includes some that are considered "freaks" even by other monsters. She hates it when they're treated as such though.
  • Happily Adopted: By the ringmaster and all the circus folk. They treat her like family (and throw the occasional prank). although she does still wonder about where she came from.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: Even by Monster High standards; she's 15 feet 2 inches, and her doll towers over the others. Of course she ends up joining the girls casketball team.
  • Mad Scientist: R.S., the person who created her and gave her up for adoption.
  • Punny Name: As usual for Monster High, but also applies to her original number names - 816 = BIG, and 8708 = BLOB.
  • Slime Girl: Her basic physical nature.
  • You Are Number Six: Her original designation was Experiment 816, Batch 8708. The folks who adopted her gave her a more colorful name.
  • Miss Fanservice: The Monster High official Twitter seems to be trying to make her this, repeatedly selecting her as their "woman crush". Not that she isn't cute.


     Deuce Gorgon 
Son of Medusa. The resident casketball captain, he's well known and well loved at school. His freaky flaw is his powers to turn people/monsters to stone, though the effect wears off after 24 hours.

     Holt Hyde/Jackson Jekyll 
Student with an alter-ego. The 4th generation grandson of Henry Jekyll/Edward Hyde. The newest transplant to Monster High...or shall we say transplants. At first, Jackson Jekyll existed during the daytime and Holt at night, though neither, or Holt at least, seemed to know about the other. Since, though, they've each become aware of their condition... and aren't too enthused. Their condition has also changed, as instead of being brought out by the night Holt's brought out by loud music with a beat. Jackson is a timid, shy yet cute nerd while Holt is the loud and boisterous school resident DJ. Holt is known as DJ Hyde in the Monster High books.
  • Added Alliterative Appeal: Both of their names.
  • Adorkable: As Jackson.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Holt has blue skin.
  • Crossdressing Voices/Talking To Herself: Cindy Robinson voices both Jackson and Holt.
  • Distressed Dudes: In "Ghouls Rule" where Holt was framed for trashing the Muggle school, and was sentenced to the "Trick-or-Treatment".
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Jackson is first mentioned in Deuce's diary and as his best friend in the official bio. He is mentioned again in Draculaura's and Clawdeen's.
  • Fantastic Racism: Jackson's first appearance in the webisodes shows us how "normies" are viewed by many monsters. Even Heath, his cousin, is a little embarrassed to admit they're related at first. Deuce, however, quickly accepts Jackson.
  • Fiery Redhead: As Holt, a literal "Hot Head".
  • Flaming Hair: As Holt.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: Both dolls have eyebrow rings and tattoos!
  • Hollywood Nerd: Jackson, especially to Holt, who complains about waking up in "nerdy" clothing.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal/Special: Holt experiences the former, due to his sometimes violent temper accompanied by uncontrollable flames, and Jackson feels the latter, due to being the only "normie" in an all-monster school.
  • Jekyll & Hyde: Well, duh. Neither one knows of the other until much later, though. Whenever one side is "awake", the other has a blackout, but continuities varied on the trigger for a long time. Originally, in the diaries, Jackson was awake during the day, but became Holt at night; in the books, Holt came out when the temperature got high, then turned back into Jackson when he had time to cool off; and finally, in the webisodes, Jackson turned into Holt if he heard loud music with a beat. This was finally addressed in Jackson's journal, explaining that "the volatile nature of [his] elemental side + [his] Hyde heritage + being a teenager = constant change."
  • Large Ham: Holt. "Yo FRAN-KEEEEEEEYEAAH!"
  • Likes Older Women: Played with. Jackson has a crush on Draculaura in the doll franchise, but she doesn't actually seem that much older than him. In the books, he is with Melody Carver, a human girl the same age as him.
  • Multicolored Hair: Black and blonde as Jackson.
  • Ship Sinking: First with Draculaura in the diaries, and then with Frankie in the webisodes. Yes, having two constantly altering personas makes dating very, very difficult. The second was subverted, though; Frankie took a break from them so they could focus on getting along and not constantly lashing out at each other, and now that they're on good terms with one another, Mattel is teasing at them getting back together with Frankie — particularly with her I <3 Fashion doll and their clothing styles starting to influence each other. The Frankie/Jackson Picnic Casket two-pack should bring resolution to this story when it comes out, much like School's Out Draculaura/Clawd did for their storyline in season two.
  • Ship Tease: Jackson with Draculaura at first, but it didn't last. Both of them with Frankie later on — twice over.
  • The Reveal: During 'Here Comes Treble', when Jackson is exposed to loud music, he makes a mad dash out of sight from public view. Unfortunately, he doesn't make it in time and changes mid running up the school staircase where everyone sees him.
  • Token Human: Subverted.

     Clawd Wolf 
Clawdeen's level headed older brother. He's the captain of the school's football and casketball squad but realistically knows he can't always be in sports, so he studies to go into sports medicine. His basic doll release was with Draculaura, and the two are strong contenders for Monster High's most stable relationship.

     Heath Burns 
Heath Burns has the ability to control fire. He was at first an extra in the webisode "Substitute Creature" and shortly introduced as Draculaura's short-lived crush. Heath is a show-off and gets on the girls' nerves by being self-centered and insensitive. He's friends with most of the boys, but even they admit he can be annoying. In "Fear Pressure", we learn he is Jackson's cousin. Heath has appeared in the Monster High novels: He was at first introduced as a normie, but in the second book he was revealed as a RAD by sneezing flame. His book counterpart is more mellow and not as conceited. He's also had a doll.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Yellow skin, and not in a Simpson way.
  • Ascended Extra: Somewhat. In the webisodes, he's become a regular cast member, even being featured as much as Deuce. He was in the first novel, strongly implying he was never meant to stay an extra.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Anything written from his perspective implies that he has this and it's the source of a lot of his behavior problems. Might have something to do with him being a fire elemental.
  • Class Clown
  • Dogged Nice Guy: To Abbey.
    • Also to Frankie in the "Boo Year's Eve" short.
  • Flaming Hair: Literally.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: To the boys mostly.
  • Handsome Lech: He's a shameless flirt. Girls, while admitting that he is good-looking, will usually not give him the time of day after the first meeting.
  • Iron Butt Monkey
  • Shameless Flirt In Love: Has this with Abbey. The other ghouls thought he was just messing around when trying to ask her to the dance, but he was actually serious about it.
  • Out of Focus: Not in the webisodes, but in the doll line. Despite the fact that he's been a fairly constant main player in the show since the beginning, it took him far longer than most of the other main boys of the cast to finally appear in doll form (second probably only to Slo Mo). Even his (then unknown to be related) cousin Holt got a basic doll with a diary - with Jackson getting the doll treatment twice - long before Heath did. He's received another doll release in the 2015 Scarnival line, so things seem to be getting better.
  • Sad Clown: His diary seems to hint at this.
  • Ship Tease: With Abbey, bordering on being an Official Couple. His doll came in a 2-pack with her.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Heath started out as this for Holt, until both characters ended up in all continuities (neither replacing the other) and Heath underwent Cast Speciation to become more of a Butt Monkey.

     Sloman "Slo Mo" Mortavich 
One of the zombies and Ghoulia's boyfriend. He seems to be friends with both Heath and Gill.

     Gillington "Gil" Webber 
Son of the River Monsters. Has a loving, but troubled, relationship with Lagoona, thanks to his parents' prejudice against saltwater monsters.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Blue
  • Dating What Daddy Hates: Both his parents are equally opposed to the relationship. His parents even made him change schools for a time to try and break them up, but they eventually gave in and let him go back.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: You won't hear him called "Gillington" much. Averted only in Lagoona's 13 Wishes diary, after Howleen's wish turns her into a freshwater monster.
  • Lovable Coward: shows up a few times, but mostly in the special. But when push comes to shove, he comes through.

     Manny Taur 
A school bull-y. Also the son of the Minotaur.

     HooDude Voodoo 
A raggedy doll created by Frankie to be her boyfriend. After Frankie decides that she doesn't need a guy to fit in, she tosses him away, only for him to reveal that he's alive and heartbroken at her "breaking up with him." He was made into a doll and was released in a 2 pack with Scarah Screams as the SDCC 2012 doll.
  • Cute Clumsy Guy
  • Demonic Dummy: But still a pretty nice guy.
  • Large Ham: He's rather... melodramatic about Frankie "dumping" him.
    • And just about any other emotion he may be feeling. He actually lists his oversensitiveness and tendency to wear his heart on his sleeve as his Freaky Flaws in his later-released bio.
  • The Ingenue: Arguably a rare male example, being extremely naive and innocent about most things.
  • Nice Guy
  • The Not-Love Interest: He slowly gets over Frankie while forming a strong bond with Scarah Screams the banshee. Peers have asked them why they aren't dating, and he admits that, while he's really close to her, he just doesn't feel any romantic attraction to her.
  • Younger Than They Look: Like his creator.

     Invisi Billy 
Son of The Invisible Man.

  • Nonstandard Character Design: Yes, even for this series. Her doll has an intricate Celtic knot covering its chest and abdomen.
  • Stock Ness Monster: Her family. Her diary heavily implies her grandma was the original one that appeared in the famous picture.

Freaky Fusion

     Neighthan Rot 
One of the new characters in Freaky Fusion, a clumsy zombie/unicorn hybrid. He's the most optimistic one out of the hybrid gang that Monster High will be the place where they finally fit in. Wants to be a psychologist, and has an awkward crush on Frankie.

  • The Klutz: One of his main character traits.
  • Nice Guy: Sensitive and wants to become a psychologist to help other monsters like him deal with their dual natures. Doesn't help the accusations of him being a Marty Stu.
  • Ship Tease: With Frankie, much to the chagrin of fans who ship her with Jackson (who was barely in this movie) or anyone else.

     Avea Trotter 
Introduced in Freaky Fusion, she's a highly stubborn and opinionated harpy/centaur hybrid.

  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Acts rude at first but it's only because she's used to her and her friends being not accepted by and kicked out of all the other schools they've gone to in the past. She warms up a bit when she sees that Monster High is different.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Tough and domineering, she acts as the masculine girl to Neighthan's sensitive guy.
  • Hybrid Monster: Shares this trait with Bonita, Sirena and Neighthan as the daughter of a centaur and harpy.

     Bonita Femur 
Introduced in Freaky Fusion, a shy and jumpy hybrid of a skeleton and the Mothman. She has an embarrassing habit of chewing her own clothes when she gets nervous, and generally likes eating fabric.
  • Nervous Wreck: Due to being part-moth. In this world the Mothman is more like an actual moth-creature than an Eldritch Abomination.
  • Hybrid Monster: Shares this trait with Avea, Sirena and Neighthan as the daughter of the Mothman and a skeleton.

     Sirena Von Boo 
Introduced in Freaky Fusion, a spacey mermaid/ghost hybrid with a habit of wandering off. Will also be featured in the upcoming Haunted movie it seems, since she's part ghost.

  • Color Coded Emotions: Changes colors based on how she's feeling.
  • Gratuitous Japanese: Her bio is peppered with this. Justified, as she is Japanese.

  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Kiyomi started haunting Draculaura out of admiration and a desire to emulate her. Unfortunately, her actions alert the ghouls to a disturbance in the Ghost World, kicking off the plot of Haunted.

     Kieran Valentine 
The antagonist of Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love, he was Draculaura's boyfriend (for a week) before her family had to flee their old home about 500 years prior to her attending Monster High. An emotional vampire, he's Exactly What It Says on the Tin (a vampire who subsists off of emotions, not blood). To this end, he'd use his charms and looks to steal love from many ghouls, until he lost his powers attempting to steal Draculaura's heart after his first attempt centuries before was cut short. He regains them later from working in an animal shelter (that's heavily implied to be magical) and learns that stolen emotion cannot sustain any emotional vampire. He was released as a San Diego Comic Con exclusive doll alongside Djinni Grant in summer 2015.
  • The Atoner: In the second graphic novel "I Only Have Eye For You", he tries to make up for his past actions by "helping" the couples get together before the dance. His actions usually backfired though, and nobody even knew it was him until the last chapter. In the end, they all realize that he really was trying to help and that his actions did help the couples get closer - even if it wasn't they way he intended. They accept him but ask that he acts more openly next time.
  • Big Bad: Of 'Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love?'
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Has one with Toralei Stripe in Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love? He wants Draculaura's heart, she wants Draculaura's unhappiness.
  • The Casanova: Has broken dozens of girl's hearts.
  • Charm Person: Can hypnotize girls to fall in love with him, which he does to Draculaura to get her away from Clawd. It's part of the deal as an emotional vampire.
  • Cool Shades: Which he uses to tell when a girl's heart is ready to be "harvested".
  • Defeat Means Friendship: If not friendship, at least acceptance.
  • Hypnotic Eyes
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Sort of - he never really loved Draculaura, but since he hurt her the most with his past actions he puts the most effort into "helping" her and Clawd in the graphic novel.
  • Manipulative Bastard
  • Momma's Boy: He cries for his mom at the end when his plans fail.
  • Our Vampires Consume Emotions
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Always wears a nice suit.
  • Southern Gentleman: Puts on a fake accent to make himself sound like this when he's trying to charm people. His real voice is closer to a general American accent.

    Djinni "Whisp" Grant 
Gigi Grant's ambitious shadow, as introduced in 13 Wishes. Was officially released as a San Diego Comic Con exclusive doll alongside Kieran Valentine in summer 2015.
  • Big Bad: Of 13 Wishes.
  • Heel-Face Turn
  • Karma Houdini: Arguably. Howleen figures out exactly what's been driving her for all these years and arranges for her to trade places with Gigi as the new Genie of the Lamp, which is exactly what both of them really wanted.
  • Living Shadow: She becomes visibly more "real" as the Finder — in this case, Howleen — makes the wishes she suggests and grants her more control.
  • Not So Different
  • Salieri Syndrome: She really suffers from jealousy over Gigi's role as the Genie, which had a hand in how she stirs the same feelings in Howleen.
  • Sealed Evil In A Lamp: She shares it with Gigi.
  • We Can Rule Together: She offers Howleen unlimited power at her side even after it becomes clear that that's not really what she wants anymore. Exactly how sincere she was about this is debatable.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: With Gigi, the Monster High ghouls, and Kieran Valentine.

    Moanatella Ghostier

  • Big Bad: Of Scaris: City of Frights.
