    Students of Scare School 

Casper

  • The Chosen One: Fans believe that Kibosh wants to make Casper the next leader of the Underworld.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: His friendliness often causes problems for both his fellow creatures and himself.
  • Older Than They Look: He appears to be somewhere around Jimmy's age, but he is really more than two hundred years old.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: In "Potent Brew" Casper is trying to pull something from a toddler's grip and when Mantha scares the toddler into letting go, making her cry, Casper thanks her.

Ra

An Egyptian prince.

  • Attention Whore: His obsession with getting attention does sometimes get him in trouble, though.
  • Distressed Dude: One notable example would be "Dimension Demended", where he gets stuck in the Dimension Tube.
  • Older Sidekick: Ra is 2500-years-old while Casper is hundreds of years old.
  • Older Than They Look: He appears to be somewhere around Jimmy's age, but he is really almost three thousand years old.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Manly Man to Casper's Sensitive Guy. Ra is hot-blooded and manly, while Casper is calmer and more effeminate.

Mantha

Casper's other best creature friend and love interest who is a "Zombie Activist".

  • Berserk Button: DON'T talk trash about zombies, some actors found this out the harsh way.
  • The Determinator: Takes a lot to get her to give up.
  • Friendly Zombie: This young zombie girl has a loving zombie family. She's one of Casper's best friends and is generally a Nice Girl.
  • Interspecies Romance: Interspecies paranormal romance. She has a crush on Casper. She's a zombie and he's a ghost.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: She is actually smart and agile. The walking slowly while chanting "Braaains..." routine is just a scare tactic zombies use. And though she does eat brains, it's not all she eats.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Subverted. She wears a pink shirt and her shoes have pink shoelaces but she's rather tomboyish.

Thatch

The head bully at Scare School and Casper's arch nemesis.

  • 0% Approval Rating: He certainly believes that he's popular, but nobody really seems to like him much. Even his henchman don't know why they hang out with him.
  • Dreadful Musician: Thatch thinks he can sing, but to the others, he's horrible.
  • Dragged by the Collar: Whenever he gets in trouble, someone (mainly Alder and Dash) drags him away by his cape.
  • Flanderization: In season 1 he was sneaky, clever and better balanced. In season 2 he is whiny, not so scary and a lot more bratty and greedy.

Thatch's gang

Thatch's "followers".

  • The Dragon: Slither is normally seen helping Thatch the most out of the gang..
  • Hair Decorations: Dummy Girl ties her hair with two big red bows.
  • The Pig Pen: Mosshead doesn't bother much with hygiene.

Mickey and Monaco

Preppy Skeleton twin girls.

  • Those Two Girls: It's pretty rare to see them apart and they are extremely similar.

    Scare School Staff 

Alder and Dash

Scare School's headmasters. Dash, the head on the left, is very cunning and intelligent. Alder, the head on the right, is somewhat lacking in the smarts department but has ideas from time to time. But what they have in common is that they are both rude and manipulative.

  • You Have Failed Me: In "What Possessed You?", Kibosh sent them to the Chamber of Unspeakable Horrors for failing at turning Casper into a terryfing creature.
  • Genius Ditz: Alder is rather incompetent, though he has his moments where he is the smart one, but not normally.

Frankengymteacher

Scare School's gym teacher.

    Other Creatures 

Ghostly Trio

Casper's uncles and caregivers.

  • Adaptational Nice Guys: Unlike most adaptations, they don't bully or look down on Casper for being kind, and when they're not pulling pranks on people, are actually pretty nice fellows themselves.

Kibosh

The much feared leader of the Underworld.

  • Meaningful Name: He is determined to put the kibosh on Casper's friendliness.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: He used to be a friendly ghost like Casper when he was his age.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Played with. He was never seen hurting a student. However, he has made things that would have hurt or even killed the students in season 1, plus Alder and Dash implied that Kibosh gives the students the same hideous punishments he gives to adult creatures, although Kibosh believes he is doing what's best for his people.

    Humans 

James "Jimmy" Bradley

Casper's best (human) friend.

  • Secret Keeper: Keeps a secret that Casper is friends with him.
  • Wacky Parent, Serious Child: The Serious Child to Graham's Wacky Parent. While his father usually acts silly, he is usually laid-back most of the time.

Graham Bradley

Jimmy's father and Deedstown's Creature Catcher.

  • Bumbling Dad: Jimmy's father, who is an airheaded and is very clumsy.
  • Manchild: He can be seen hugging a teddy bear while Jimmy tells his scout trope a scary story in "Scare Scouts".

The Normans

Deedstown's local bullies who love to make other children's lives hell, especially Jimmy's.

  • The Bully: They make other children suffer. They especially target Jimmy.
