Mr. Charlie Chan
"Advice after a mistake is like medicine after the funeral."The one and only Detective Chan. Usually picks up on the clues his children miss.
"Well, gang, it's up to the Chan Clan now."Mr. Chan's oldest son and the natural leader of his siblings. A hard worker and a thoughtful brother and son, but somewhat uptight.
"Wham bam, we're in a jam!"The second oldest and Henry's partner in solving capers. Though he takes his work seriously you'd never know it with all his silly jokes and disguises.
"We're gonna find it a good home. Where the people won't lock it in closets like Mr. Snively did!"The oldest of the girls. A sweet and even-tempered young lady with some bite to her.
"I'm hip!"The technological genius of the Chan Clan, and the most laid back of the kids. Teases Anne constantly, but is shown to have affection for her.
"And the women!"The tomboy daughter and feminist of the Chan Clan. Often clashes with Tom and Alan, but they're all quite close nonetheless.
"Indubitably."The intellectual of the Chan Clan. Like Alan, he's prone to busting his sister's chops now and then and is often distracted on the job by his scholastic findings.
"What'd I tell ya, Pop? Like knocking over a piggy bank."The oldest of the four youngest, and the most gung-ho about helping his father.
"Chu-Chu! That's no way to treat a guest."The second oldest of the youngest. Clumsy, chubby and a little easily scared, but just as invested in solving mysteries as her siblings.
"You just wait for your elders!"The youngest daughter of the Chan Clan, she's prone to bossing Scooter around and clinging to Nancy when frightened.
"Boy, what a brain, chief!"The youngest of Detective Chan's children and Flip's devoted sidekick.
Arf, arf!The family dog. Though mostly comic relief, he gets quite a few moments of awesome.
