"Welcome to Hogwarts!" note 
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 Boarding School 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.

Spoilers, all unmarked, are present throughout

Nina Martin

Portrayed by: Nathalia Ramos

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Nina_Martin_4362.jpg
Hi! I'm Nina, from America!

The New Transfer Student at the Boarding School. She tries to solve the mystery of the House of Anubis and find the treasure hidden within.


  • All-Loving Hero: 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 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.)
  • Bad Liar: Her brilliant lies include claiming Patricia has a boyfriend, that she and Fabian were using the telescope to find a bowling alley, and that they needed fireplace ash to do a project on Pompeii. Her biggest issue is that she just keeps talking long after the point she should stop, as if rambling will make her lie more believable.
  • Betty and Veronica: In the Nina/Fabian/Joy love triangle, Nina was the Betty and Joy the Veronica. Nina was Fabian's kind, heroic, and shy friend, who was most similar to him in terms of personality. Joy, meanwhile, was his former best friend and a near-perfect contrast to Nina, being extroverted, gossipy, cunning, and not nearly as interested in academics than Fabian is.
  • Bookworm: Nina loves to read, to the extent that Patricia mocks her for doing "nothing other than work" when she catches Nina reading.
  • Butt-Monkey: Despite being The Hero and The Chosen One, she falls into this too. Poor girl has had to deal with her new friend Sarah dying in Season 1, all of her friends being threatened by a vengeful ghost in Season 2, and said ghost 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.
  • The Chosen One:
    • Revealed in the season finale to be the "Paragon", destined to build the Cup of Ankh, and the only one who can use the Mask of Anubis. Lampshaded by Jerome:
      Jerome: It would be the American, wouldn't it?
    • Fabian even suspects it before the season finale, when Nina tells him that she was able to find the next clue because she heard voices coming from the chandelier saying where in the chandelier it was.
      Nina: (after explaining how she was able to find the next clue) You're wondering if I'm insane.
      Fabian: No. I'm wondering if they've gotten it wrong about Joy being the Chosen One.
  • Establishing Character Moment: She is shown getting off the train, with a big smile and an American-flag sticker on her suitcase.
  • Foreign Exchange Student: Nina is from America, studying in a British boarding school.
  • The Hero: She's the main character of the show as well as the Chosen One, and is even described as being a "mystical champion of good".
  • It Sucks to Be the Chosen One: 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.
  • I See Dead People: She has this ability as the Chosen One. For instance, she could see and talk to Victor Rodenmaar, Sr., when she was trapped in the Sennet game. And she can see Senkhara. Though this isn't exactly a good thing.
  • Just Friends: She and Fabian went through the majority of season one denying their growing romantic attraction to one another, instead claiming to, of course, just be friends. They eventually end up as an Official Couple.
  • Kid Detective: A teenager who, along with her teenager friends, works to solve mysteries that had been hidden in Anubis house for decades. Despite being young, she solves problems the adults struggle with.
  • The Leader: The leader of Sibuna, being the intelligent, brave, and heroic protagonist whose desire to find treasure led to Sibuna's very existence. Everyone else turns to her for direction, and she makes a majority of the plans.
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: Nina and Amber are light, being sweet, kind, and warm-hearted, whereas Patricia and Joy are both dark, being much more rebellious, mischievous, and Anti Heroic in comparison.
  • Messianic Archetype: Nina being concerned about Victor's health when Senkhara threatens him pushes her into this territory. She takes it Up to Eleven 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 sociopath who would just as soon kill you as look at you.
  • Nice Girl: She's one of the nicest people in the House; she was kind to Patricia even after Patricia bullied her and gave no reason to trust her, easily forgave Joy for everything she did, and even treated Victor nicely after all he did.
  • New Transfer Student: At the beginning of the series, she's the new student, just transferred from America.
  • The Paragon: Nina is explicitly referred to as this during Season 2; it's the proper title of The Chosen One, and marks her as someone pure-of-heart and, in Patricia's words, "a mystical champion of good".
  • Put on a Bus: In Season 3, due to Nathalia Ramos deciding to concentrate on her college studies, Nina is written out as having to stay with her Gran.
  • Scholarship Student: She came to the boarding school on a scholarship. It marks her as someone intelligent, and explains why she was late to arrive: her money was delayed.
  • Sitcom Archenemy: With Joy. They spend much of the second season glaring at each other, insulting the other in private, and being openly antagonistic to each other, over Fabian's affections.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In the second season, she went from being a mostly friendly, brave friend to constantly snapping at her friends, even though they were trying to help her. She does have slight justification, though—she was under a ton of stress at the time, and was noticeably nicer when the life of she, her friends, and her Grandmother, weren't on the line.
  • Town Girls: The Neither to Amber's Femme and Patricia's Butch, being level-headed and neutral, compared to Amber's ditzy girly-girl and Patricia's hot-tempered tom-boy.
  • Turn the Other Cheek: Nina does this a few times for Patricia, and later once for Joy, willingly forgiving them despite the cruel actions they both took against her, from locking her in the attic, to writing a nasty article about her.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Nina is this to Fabian MANY times, most notably when he rescues her from falling into the chasm.
    Fabian: I...I saved you...
    Nina: Oh yeah? Well why don't you save the other girl (Joy Mercer) in this dress?!
  • Wearing a Flag on Your Head: Nina has an American flag on her luggage in the first episode, but discards it, saying that it would prevent her from fitting in. It was probably meant to inform viewers that Nina was American, and then was ditched after it had served that function.
  • Weirdness Magnet: 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!

Fabian Rutter

Portrayed by: Brad Kavanagh

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Fabian_Rutter_7592.jpg
"Would you fancy a walk?"

A geeky, shy Anubis student who quickly befriends Nina, and helps her in solving the mystery.


  • Beware the Nice Ones: Fabian is often believed to be one of the nicest people in the house, as well as a dorky Extreme Doormat. But if you threaten or insult Nina in his presence, he will do everything from simply shout at you, to honestly trying to attack you physically.
  • Book Worm: In his Establishing Character Moment, he's even seen reading a book on brain science. Additionally, he's arguably the smartest one of everyone in Sibuna, and has to burn a signed-book at the first Sibuna meeting.
  • Endearingly Dorky: He is known primarily as the shy, geeky, and socially awkward guy who's nice to everyone in the House. While this makes him an easy target for teasing, it also means he endears himself quickly to everyone, such as Nina, who is gushing about him in her diary within a few days of knowing him and mentions him as being "geek chic" and "really sweet".
  • The Hero: Shares this role with Nina, being a pure-hearted protagonist who always tries to do good.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Despite the fact that he does much of the research and saved most of this friends from danger on numerous occasions, he has been continuously pushed around by everyone, most notably his own crush and (ex) girlfriend, Nina Martin. It gets to the point where he struggles to be more assertive and demand his respect for the things he does for the others, resulting in this one line:
    Nina: (looking at the formerly lost artifact/cube Fabian brought back) Where did you find it?
    Fabian: Jasper said he found it at the school. Good thing as well, other wise we might have lost it for good.
    Nina: But how did it get from here to there?
    Fabian: I... I don't know. (pauses) Why don't you ask the cube? Maybe it speaks and answers questions since you have so many!
    Nina: (glares at Fabian)
    Fabian: I...I'm sorry. It's back now... that's the important thing. You could have said thank you, at least.
  • Establishing Character Moment: He is reading a book about brain science, and pokes fun at Joy's interest in magazines.
  • Evil Is Petty: When turned into a Sinner, his evil actions range from whispering cruel things to Joy and taunting Alfie, to ripping out the last pages of every book, to putting jam in the milk.
  • Extreme Doormat: Until the middle of season 2, Fabian was known as a pushover, too passive and kind to stand up for himself and thus allowing others to easily take advantage of him. He eventually Grew a Spine.
  • Girls Like Musicians: Fabian is a guitarist, and fittingly, has had at least three girls interested in him over the course of the series, including the protagonist, Nina.
  • Gracefully Demoted: After Nina left, Fabian took over as the leader of Sibuna. After Eddie and KT joined the team and Sibuna was "officially" reformed, Amber tried to suggest he remain the leader, but he voluntarily stepped down in favor of promoting Eddie, the Osirian, claiming to be a "better wingman".
  • Idiot Ball: He picks it up in Season 3 by trusting Robert Frobisher-Smythe, who he A) knew to be evil in general and B) knew was specifically targeting students to become Sinners to further his plan. He ends up becoming a Sinner as a result.
  • Jerk Ass Ball: There's one part in season three where Fabian rejects Joy. Being the nicest guy in the house next to Alfie, one would expect him to let her down gently like he'd done all throughout season two. Instead he rejected her in an incredibly harsh way, leaving her utterly heartbroken and to quit Sibuna.
  • Just Friends: He and Nina went through the majority of season one denying their growing romantic attraction to one another, instead claiming to, of course, just be friends. They eventually end up as an Official Couple.
  • Kick the Dog: As a sinner, he did his kicking when he pointlessly gave Joy a verbal trashing, after Joy was at her lowest emotional point. He had hugged her, and then whispered to her a "The Reason You Suck" Speech that KT, who was in the room, could not hear, leaving Joy almost completely broken that night...and he had not been planning on making her a sinner, and was just doing this for some sadistic fun.
  • Kid Detective: As part of Sibuna, this is to be expected. He's a teenager that devotes his time to solving mysteries even the adults struggled with.
  • Lovable Nerd: He's bookish, nonathletic, and mocked as being a nerd...but he's also a sweetheart with a heroic streak, and loved by everyone.
  • Nice Guy: One of his defining traits is his kindness, from being the only one to treat Nina nicely when she first arrived, to being genuinely unable to ignore Joy without feeling mean, to even being the only member of Sibuna to protest treating the "traitor", KT, like dirt.
  • No Respect Guy: Even when he helps solve major clues, Patricia still mocks the heck out of him, and everyone generally sees him as nothing more than a nerd.
  • Not Himself: When He and Alfie become sinners, everyone is scared because they are acting like total jerks, when in reality they are two of the nicest people in the house.
  • One of the Girls: Fabian's closest friends in the House were always girls. Despite his strong friendship with his roommate Mick, and later Eddie, he's always been the one to spend more time with the girls than the other guys. His Establishing Character Moment lumped him with Patricia and Joy, and even after Joy left and he and Patricia temporarily stopped being friends, he started hanging out primarily with Nina and Amber, instead. Fittingly, he's the least overtly masculine of all the Anubis boys, being a Nice Guy Extreme Doormat known primarily for being sweet and dorky.
  • Out-of-Character Alert: Alfie immediately deduces that Fabian is a Sinner when Joy claims he was really mean to her.
  • Proud to Be a Geek: Fabian gave us this little gem (after everyone teased him for being a nerd):
    Fabian: So I'm a massive nerd. There's nothing wrong with that! It's geeks like me who invented the telephone, the internet, and basically all the things you couldn't live without...
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Compared to both of his roommates. Mick is a Lovable Jock who eats a lot and has an aggressive streak, and Eddie is a rebellious Troubled, but Cute bad-boy. Fabian, meanwhile, is sweet and shy and physically weak.
  • Short-Lived Leadership: Following Nina's departure in Season 3, Fabian took over as the unofficial leader of Sibuna. However, once Eddie and KT joined in, Fabian stepped down to give the role to Eddie due to him being the Osirian.
  • Sore Loser: People think he's being this in "The Touchstone of Ra" when he tries to take the Valedictorian medal from Mara. He was being kind of a dick about it earlier, but the reason he wanted the medal was because wearing it would cause Mara to be sacrificed to Ra and Fabian was trying to keep her safe.
  • The Smart Guy: He's the smartest of everyone officially in Sibuna, solving a majority of the puzzles. In The Touchstone Of Ra, he truly believed he'd be chosen as the valedictorian.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Fabian was the Nice Guy who was also an Extreme Doormat. He eventually started becoming much more assertive, virtually attacking anyone who wrongs him or Nina and proving himself much tougher than he seemed at first. He even won the school dodgeball tournament against the rival team, who had obliterated the rest of his team before.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In the third season, having gotten over his Extreme Doormat phase, he got rather aggressive, to the point where he gave Joy an overly harsh rejection and caused her to quit Sibuna. He became MUCH worse as a sinner, tormenting his former friends just because he could.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: He tended to be like this towards Joy in season 3, where she tried to help him and cheer him up with Sibuna, only to snap at her that "Sibuna can't exist without Nina", or ignore her attempts altogether.

Patricia Williamson

Portrayed by: Jade Ramsey

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Patricia_Williamson_4086.jpg
"Where's Joy?"

Joy's best friend and roommate; spends her time trying to uncover the secrets behind her disappearance, and eventually teams up with Sibuna, helping to solve the mysteries of each season.


  • Absurd Phobia: Apparently, she has a fear of feet, contrasting the other Sibuna member's more grounded or understandable fears (bugs, small spaces, and skulls).
  • Affectionate Nickname: Eddie calls Patricia "Yacker." This started as an insult, but took on a different meaning when they started dating.
  • Anti-Hero: Patricia has always been on the good side of every conflict the characters have faced, save when she becomes a Sinner, and is literally turned evil. She's also temperamental, jealous, blunt, and is the most willing of the Sibuna characters to do morally-gray things to succeed, such as kidnap Rufus from the hospital or read KT's diary. After spending several episodes tormenting Nina and acting as a rogue in her quest to save Joy, she eventually teamed up with Sibuna, becoming their most morally-ambiguous character while still being firmly on the side of good.
  • Badass in Distress: When Patricia gets kidnapped by the villain, she still manages to keep being the strong person she is and does everything she can to escape, from leaving a clue behind when she was taken to trying to knock out the villain. Despite this, it is her friends who end up rescuing her. (After two of them have to be saved themselves after a first failed rescue attempt, anyway.) Immediately following her rescue Patricia goes on to furiously blackmail one of the teachers into telling the secret about her missing friend.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Eddie. Everyone in the house could see the two of them had some attraction to each other, despite the fact that all they did was argue and pull pranks on each other.
  • Bully Turned Buddy: Patricia relentlessly tormented Nina when she first arrived at the school, on the assumption that Nina was responsible for her friend's disappearance. But Nina was willing to forgive her once Patricia began to cool down, and by the end of season one, they'd become very close friends and loyal Sibuna members.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She is not happy about KT and Eddie spending time together, nor was she happy about him spending any time with Mara. She even showed signs of this in a non-romantic sense, becoming jealous when Fabian became Nina's friend instead of hers.
  • Conspiracy Theorist: 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.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She's extremely sarcastic no matter who she's talking to or why. Even Rufus, who kidnapped her, was forced to deal with her sarcasm when she demanded food and snarkily greeted him.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: She's the cool goth who says what she thinks, does what she wants and scares the rest of the students in all three seasons, but come season 2 her personality started to soften up overall. What happened? Well, she met Eddie and started to turn a bit nicer. Not to mention the whole near death mystery stuff and the Power of Friendship. If those things can't begin to chip away at someone's icy shell, nothing can.
  • Demoted to Comic Relief: Patricia is a major character in season 1, with her Joy subplot being a major focal point and her character being played seriously, despite her Deadpan Snarker tendencies being relatively funny. Come season 2, the Joy plot has been resolved and she shifts from the show's deuteragonist to a comedic secondary character. Though still involved in the mystery, her flaws and scenes were mostly Played for Laughs, her major subplot is centered around her Belligerent Sexual Tension with Eddie, and she has less involvement in the Sibuna plot this time around. Season 3 balances it a bit; while some of her comedic traits remain, she's more important to the plot than in season 2 and is treated more seriously.
  • Devil in Plain Sight: At least when she becomes a sinner. She tricked the others into believing the sinner was KT, while her out of character attitude should have suggested otherwise; she also claimed that KT dragged her to the Gatehouse, which puts her in a victim position the real Patricia would never allow herself to be in.
  • Dislikes the New Guy: Tends to really dislike the new kid who joins the House each season. It's for different reasons each time, however, and typically personal ones. With Nina, she believed she was responsible for causing the disappearance of her best friend, Joy. With Eddie, it was a case of hatred turned Belligerent Sexual Tension. And, with KT...she was worried about Eddie liking her. Usually, the other house members find her attitude to be irrational and pointlessly mean, and it tends to cause some problems. She ends up getting over it in the middle of each season and becomes very close to the person she once couldn't stand.
  • Establishing Character Moment: She and Joy are goofing around and being best friends.
  • Fiery Redhead: She has red hair (different shades through the seasons) and she's very short-tempered. She's an interesting variation, though, since she has great self control, plays the cold-rational type between her rather emotional friends, and can be cunning. Her hair being a dark shade of red would fit her very particular variation.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Played With. Patricia seems like she'd be the more down to Earth one, being the Deadpan Snarker and a bit more responsible than her rather emotional friends, while Piper seems like she'd be the naive and foolish one. However, when they actually interact, Patricia's impulsive and mischievous nature becomes much more obvious in comparison to her much calmer, nicer sister, making Piper the responsible one and Patricia the foolish one.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: It doesn't take much to make her angry, be it making a comment she doesn't like, potentially being interested in her boyfriend, accidentally getting her shirt messy... she gets angry quickly, and then stays angry for a while afterward.
  • Hates Wearing Dresses: Played with; Patricia wears dark-colored, tomboyish dresses to every school dance event, but hated wearing a frilly pink one in Touchstone of Ra, which she wore only because Sophia thought Eddie would like it.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Patricia may be temperamental, blunt, and aggressive, but she does mean well- and proves her genuine good-side by looking out for her friends, even the ones she'd been quite mean to at the beginning of the series. She's snarky and rude, but truly cares about the people around her, and shows her softer side when they're in need of it.
  • Kick the Dog: As a sinner, she crossed it by tricking everyone into thinking KT was the sinner, and then constantly taunting KT at each chance she had about it. There was a subtle one where she promised to bring KT breakfast- Sibuna had locked her in their bedroom- and when the others left, she threw the food away instead.
  • Kid Detective: Expected, as she is a part of Sibuna, considering they all have to look for clues to find the treasure. She's a teenager solving a mystery, and does even better than the adults.
  • The Lancer: She's the Anti-Hero to Nina's Hero, and is the most independent member of Sibuna, having been in her own mystery before joining. She also fits this role in the third season Sibuna as well, where she plays off Eddie in a very similar way. Despite having an opposing personality, though, she's very loyal to the cause and her friends, and Nina and Eddie both rely on her a lot.
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine:
    • Nina and Amber are light, being sweet, kind, and warm-hearted, whereas Patricia and Joy are both dark, being much more rebellious, mischievous, and Anti Heroic in comparison.
    • With her twin sister Piper they play this quite straight: Goth, independent tough-cookie Patricia is the dark to sweet, docile, dependant Piper's light.
  • Mistaken for Cheating: Eddie begins to believe towards the end of season 2 that Patricia is seeing someone else because of how often she disappears without telling him why, and he suspects it might be Alfie. He eventually follows her, Fabian and Alfie when they leave for the barn and finds out the truth.
  • Non-Uniform Uniform: Her typical outfit includes an untucked shirt, a blazer with rolled-up sleeves and combat boots.
  • Only Sane Woman: While Patricia was driven crazy and treated like a freak in season 1, and her first treatment of Nina was definitely not something to approve, it was totally natural to get frustrated and anxious when her best friend disappeared and no one cared to really help. She suspected something was going on, and she was sadly right. After she joins Sibuna, she mostly acts in a maturing and rational way, neutralizing her more emotional friends.
  • Out-of-Character Alert: Patricia being polite over the phone was enough to let everyone know that she wasn't alone.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Patricia is the bold, tomboyish, defiant and rude one; Piper is highly talented in piano, very sweet and polite, and much less inclined to make big moves out of fear of failure than her Determinator sister is. It's pretty obvious when you compare their crushes—Patricia likes Jerk with a Heart of Gold Eddie, while Piper likes the Nice Guy Class Clown Alfie.
  • Scholarship Student: Season 3 reveals that she's at the school as part of a "Candy" scholarship program. Of course, Mr.Sweet was behind the scholarship, and only brought her to the school because she's a descendant.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: She was originally a total bitch to Nina, but, after learning to trust her, became much nicer, despite still being rather tough and sarcastic. Even in other seasons, when she finds new people to hate, she never goes to the same level she did for Nina, showing she did in fact change.
  • Tomboy:
    • She's stubborn and Goth, never backs down from her problems, has a Hair-Trigger Temper, is brash and rude, and is often called a 'witch' by the other members in her House. Also, everyone else is afraid of her, she used to play sports, namely soccer, and in the movie, the only reason she wore a frilly pink dress was because Sophia thought Eddie would like it.
    • In "House of Fronts/House of Keepers," she takes offense when Eddie implies that she might be too "ladylike" for American football.
      Eddie: (before showing her how to play American football) You ready? This game is not for ladies.
      Patricia: Uh, hey, I am not a lady.
      Eddie: Yeah, you're right. (runs at her to tackle her, football-style)
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: She is the Tomboy to all the other girls' Girly Girl. It's most obvious when she's compared with Amber and Joy, but one can still see it even when she's with Mara and Nina, who have their own tomboy qualities but remain much girlier than Patricia. One bit where the tomboyishness of Patricia as compared to the girliness of the other girls in the House of Anubis is really highlighted is after Amber leaves in Season 3 and KT suggests that they use Amber's clothes to give themselves makeovers. Joy and Mara are thrilled by this idea, but Patricia is annoyed by it.
    KT: You know what we need?
    Patricia: A road trip to Mexico with the wind in our hair and the law on our tails!
    (Everyone laughs)
    Mara: (laughing) No!
    KT: Since Amber left us all of her stuff, I figured...it's makeover o' clock! (Patricia groans) Come on! What have we got to lose? Might be fun.
    Patricia: Or excruciating.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: She is close friends with GirlyGirls like Joy and Amber, seems to have an interest in fashion, and is seen in "The Touchstone Of Ra" wearing a dress — while she only did it to impress Eddie and tended to complain about it, she was also worried about going into the cellar because the dress could get ruined. She then added, "Did I really just say that?"
  • Town Girls: The hot-headed, tomboyish Butch to Nina's level-headed Neither and Amber's ditzy Femme.
  • Tsundere: Toward Eddie. She admitted liking Eddie to Joy, but whenever she tries to tell Eddie this, it comes out as an insult.
    Joy: Just tell him you like him!
    Patricia: I can't! I mean, I want to say, 'Eddie, I like you, I think you're cute' and all that stuff, but by the time it gets to here (points to her mouth) it comes out as, 'Get out of my face, Eddie, you freak!'
    Joy: Yeah, you say that a lot...
  • The Unapologetic: Patricia has a moment like this where she refuses to apologize to Eddie for accidentally spilling a secret of his, only it's justified, because she didn't actually do anything wrong. She did keep his secret and the fact that Eddie even thought that she would stoop so low as to sabotage him and turn on the loudspeaker on purpose to reveal his secret to the whole school she found highly offensive. Also, she was just being forced to apologize to Eddie so she could convince him to drop an article he was writing about the local ghost.
    • In Episode 2, She also refuses to apologizes to Nina for locking up at night, as she refuses to give up on Joy.

Amber Millington

Portrayed by: Ana Mulvoy Ten

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Amber_Millington_5041.png
"I'm a genius"

A pretty, ditzy female student, who befriends Nina and starts Sibuna. She starts off the series dating Mick.


  • All Take and No Give: Amber and Alfie's relationship in the beginning of season 2 was like this; Amber had an entire list of criteria Alfie had to meet before he'd even have a chance at being her boyfriend, and then she proceeded to push him around until he got sick of dating her.
  • Alpha Bitch: Amber temporarily strayed into this territory when she and Mara were competing for the student representative position. Due to her jealousy over Mara and Mick's relationship, Amber became quite mean to Mara, and tried to use her popularity, beauty, and role on the cheerleading-team to win, mocking Mara's genuine effort to win due to her brains and vision.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: 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.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: She's usually got her head in the clouds and is a bit ditzy, often going off track or getting easily confused because of her own interpretation of things- such as her line about trying to dream about Justin Bieber, but instead dreaming of "just a beaver".
  • The Chick: She's the girliest member of Sibuna, and is also the glue that holds them together- naming the club in Season 1, bringing Patricia and Alfie back in Season 2, and officially bringing the club back together before she left in Season 3.
  • Dumb Blonde: While blonde and beautiful, 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.
    Victor: She doesn't have two brain cells to rub together!
  • Establishing Character Moment: She is talking on her phone, during class, asking her father to give her an extension on her credit card.
  • Genius Ditz: Amber isn't very good with academics and tends to have her head in the clouds ...but she does have many moments of genius and is very skilled at fashion. In the original Dutch version, she's more of a spoiled girl, with some ditzy moments.
  • Flanderization: Her ditziness was definitely played up in Season 2— forcing Alfie to go through a ton of work to be her boyfriend, wearing wedges when the Sibunas had to practice walking through spiderweb, not knowing the meaning of the term "Mole"...she was a ditz in Season 1, but wow.
  • Hidden Depths: Revealed to be good at ping pong; as in a champion for three years straight. More importantly, she's also come up with some pretty good ideas during the search for the treasure in season 1.
  • Overnight Age-Up: Happens to Amber after she is cursed by Senkhara. She is cursed with aging, and one morning, wakes up looking like an elderly woman, with wrinkles and gray hair and all.
  • Put on a Bus: Goes to a prestigious fashion school halfway into Season 3.
  • Scratchy-Voiced Senior: Downplayed, when Amber is struck with an aging curse; her voice changes subtly along with her appearance after an Over Night Age Up, and becomes much more soft and crackly. As soon as the curse is lifted, her voice goes back to normal.
  • Shipper on Deck: A huge supporter of Nina and Fabian being together. From making a "Fabina" scrapbook as soon as she believes they're dating, to making the two of them prom king and queen, to getting furious when Joy tried to get in the way of their relationship, she was highly devoted to the two of them being together.
  • Spoiled Sweet: Amber has plenty of moments where she's selfish, but for the most part, she's a loyal friend, one of the least mean of the Anubis residents, and just generally a sweetheart.
  • Town Girls: The girly, ditzy Femme to Nina's calm, neutral Neither and Patricia's fiery, tomboy Butch.

Alfred "Alfie" Lewis

Portrayed by: Alex Sawyer

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Alfie_Lewis_6835.jpg
"Why would anyone want to be subtle?"

Anubis House's resident jokester, and Jerome's best friend. He has a crush on Amber.


  • Beware the Silly Ones: Alfie may be the Class Clown, but he's no pushover, as he has proven to be a useful presence in Sibuna- and if he is serious about something, you better not stand in his way. He yelled at Fabian and Patricia when they wanted to have breakfast instead of rescuing the currently-trapped Amber, and then later was the one standing up against Sinner-turned Fabian -- to the point of taunting Fabian about Nina and getting away with it.
  • Big Eater: Not only does he always eat—he eats a lot. And it's rather messy, too. He's the one who once almost ditched Sibuna to eat Trudy's cookies instead while the students were under lock down and not allowed to eat anything Victor didn't allow them to.
  • Butt-Monkey: He's sometimes the butt of his friends jokes, has been pranked numerous times by his best friend, was locked in the cellar, nearly died from poisoning, de-aged/shrunk, was pushed around by his girlfriend, would have died at the end of season 1 if Fabian didn't switch the elixir, and the list goes on.
  • Class Clown: He goofs off and gets in trouble all the time, being known for being a comedic goofball who almost never takes anything seriously, especially class work.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Alfie's the Class Clown and believes in things like aliens and zombies, but on occasion his silliness comes in handy. For instance, one of his planned zombie hideout places was perfect for moving an unconscious Robert Frobischer-Smythe into to perform the ceremony. Also, his magic skills have come in handy a few times.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: To Amber. He'd spent the entire first season and the beginning of season two pining for her and treating her like a queen to win her affection while she ignored and rejected his advances.
  • Establishing Character Moment: He shows Jerome his newest plan to get Amber to notice him, which involves a fake hand.
  • Expelled from Every Other School: It's an off-hand comment, but he claims that he can't stay at the camera protest with the other students because his parents would kill him for "being kicked out of yet another school".
  • Fountain of Youth: He suffers from this as a result of Senkhara's curse, de-aging until he became a baby.
  • Give Geeks a Chance: Despite being the resident Class Clown Stage Magician obsessed with aliens, zombies, and pranks, not only gets to date the beautiful and popular Amber, but gets two other love interests over the course of the series, neither of whom are nearly as geeky as him.
  • Intentional Heartbreaker: After becoming a sinner, he casually and callously broke up with Willow, relishing in her pain and heartbreak. He then praised Jerome for doing the same to Joy.
  • Kick the Dog: He did his very early in his time as a sinner. Right after being turned, he began taunting Willow and broke up with her, then proceeded to flirt with Mara and Joy directly in front of her, as she was crying. Made even worse by the fact that their relationship was possibly the healthiest on the show up to that point, and Willow has always been one of the nicest people on the show, period.
  • No Respect Guy: 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.
  • Not Himself: When he and Fabian become sinners, everyone is scared because they are acting like total jerks, when in reality they are two of the nicest people in the house.
  • Obsessed with Food
    Amber: Alfie, how could you possibly be eating at a time like this?
    Alfie: I always eat when I'm scared. Or nervous. Or... happy, come to think of it.
    Amber: Or any day with a 'y' in it...
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Alfie is there to goof around and add some levity to the show. This is Played With in later seasons, though, since he gets just as deep into the action as everyone else instead of being a funny side character.
  • The Prankster: Alfie and Jerome spend a majority of their free-time messing with their housemates, from swapping Mick's sports-gear with Amber's clothing, or pretending to be zombies in an effort to scare Sibuna.
  • Pretending to Be One's Own Relative: After Alfie is cursed to de-age, he turns back into an eight-year-old boy with the mind of normal Alfie. Because of this, he must pretend to be his own younger brother, which he uses mostly to mess with his best friend Jerome and learn things the normal Alfie wouldn't be allowed to know.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Sensitive Guy to Jerk with a Heart of Gold Jerome. He's sweet, emotional and quite the pushover, while Jerome is a lot tougher and is the leader of the duo.
  • Scholarship Student: Season 3 reveals that he's at the school as part of a "Candy" scholarship program. Of course, Mr.Sweet was behind the scholarship, and only brought him to the school because he's a descendant.
  • Too Dumb to Fool: While he is more of the class clown than a complete fool, he is rarely taken seriously by the others. However, he usually solves problems and figures things out much quicker than anyone else in Sibuna, mostly in season 3. The others tend to shoot down his ideas, only to find out later that he was correct.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: His parents, particularly his father, look down on him so much that he tries so hard to impress them when they come over. It doesn't quite work.

Eddie Miller

Portrayed by: Burkely Duffield

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Eddie_Miller_4192.jpg
"I'm concussed and I can still see through your oh-so-clever code."

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


  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Despite spending his time mocking, arguing and pranking Patricia, he had a serious crush on her, and even ended up admitting that his bad attitude towards her was a "forcefield" he had to lower to express himself.
  • Big Eater: He is often found making big, messy platters of food like spaghetti-bolognese hoagies or a huge pancake stack.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: 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. Also, in a moment of Genius Bonus, schools in the UK are much harder than in America, as well as having a very different system: he is a complete fish out of water, and doesn't put in the effort to catch up/familiarize.
  • Book Dumb: Played with by Eddie. He speaks French well enough to see through Patricia's prank note  and he even jokingly calls Ms. Andrews a "menteuse" note , but he doesn't know the meaning of the word "meritocracy". note 
  • Chekhov's Gunman: He appears in Season 2 as a new student from America and a Love Interest for Patricia, but in the season finale, he turns out to be the Osirian, counterpart and guardian to The Chosen One.
  • The Chosen One: At the end of Season 2, he turns out to be The Osirian, the one destined to protect the descendant of Amneris.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Downplayed; Eddie is the symbolic darkness to Nina's light, but is still one of the good guys. He is rebellious and edgy compared to her, but has no evil intentions.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Eddie is extremely sarcastic. His very first scene has him in Snark-to-Snark Combat with Patricia, and he has several moments of dry wit throughout the series.
  • Disappeared Dad: His turned out to be Mr. Sweet, the school's headmaster. He left when Eddie was little, leaving him devastated, and inspiring his bad-boy attitude.
  • Establishing Character Moment: He gets out of a taxi, looking annoyed by his surroundings.
  • Expelled from Every Other School: Kicked out of several schools in America before coming to the boarding school, and has no fear of being expelled from the boarding school either- when he actually is expelled, his complaint is that Mara was expelled, too.
  • Foreign Exchange Student: Eddie is an American student coming to the British boarding school, in the middle of the school year, for being kicked out of schools in the United States.
  • Hates Their Parent: Eddie resented Mr. Sweet for abandoning him as a child, revealing that after years of longing for him, he eventually grew bitter. Because of this, he intentionally stirs up trouble in school, and tries to goad his father into punishing him- only for Mr. Sweet to intentionally not punish him, making him even more resentful. Eventually, though, Eddie began to forgive him, and their relationship, though still distant and awkward, stopped being so poor.
  • Hidden Depths: He's fluent in French, compared to coming off as a slacker jerkass.
  • Insult of Endearment: Eddie initially calls Patricia "Yacker" as an insult, but it becomes an Affectionate Nickname when they start dating.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Introduced as a rebellious and snarky bad-boy who even Patricia thinks is a jackass, eventually shows himself to have a good heart, being a loyal friend, a hard-working boyfriend, and Nina's Osirian, who saves the day in the end without a second thought.
  • The Leader: When Nina leaves in season 3, he takes this role, as the Osirian, voted on by the members of Sibuna. In contrast to Nina, he's a bit more impulsive and action-oriented, but is still heroic and proactive enough to take the job.
  • Mistaken for Cheating: Patricia starts to believes Eddie was cheating on her season 3. In the beginning, she and Fabian believe that Eddie and Nina had a summer romance and that's why Nina didn't come back, because of some emails they found on Eddie's computer and the fact that he had Nina's locket. It turned out that Nina gave him the locket because he might need it, and the emails were about the whole Chosen One and Osirian thing. Later on, Miss Denby tricks Patricia into believing Eddie is cheating on her by placing fake messages on his laptop and manipulating her into reading them. It doesn't get resolved too easily, as Patricia turns into a sinner for getting upset over this, which was the whole plan. Both times, this was Played for Drama rather than laughs.
  • New Transfer Student: He transfers to the school in the second season.
  • Power Loss Depression: Downplayed. Having lost his Osirian powers in a Heroic Sacrifice, Eddie is the only student not shown having fun at the graduation party. He initially refuses Patricia's offer to dance, pointing out she hates dancing and that he isn't a "superhero" anymore when she calls him one. However, he does end up dancing with her as the series ends.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Manly Man to Adorkable Extreme Doormat Fabian's Sensitive Guy; while he's a snarky rebel that doesn't show too many emotions, Fabian is a lot more sensitive and emotional.
  • Tsundere: Pretty heavy on the Tsun toward Patricia. Eddie refers to being deredere towards Patricia as "lowering his force field" when he's trying to get Patricia to admit her feelings towards him. When she stays tsuntsun, he "vwooshes" it back up.

K.T. Rush

Portrayed by: Alexandra Shipp

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kt_rushpng.png
"Seriously? You've got to be kidding me with this house!"

A new student in Season 3. She takes Nina's old room when Nina doesn't return, and came to the school with a mission from her grandpa.


  • Alone Among the Couples: At the end of season 3, KT is the only person not paired off with anyone. She doesn't mind, though.
  • Foreign Exchange Student: She's from the United States, like Nina and Eddie before her, starting at the beginning of term just as it was discovered Nina wasn't coming back.
  • New Transfer Student: She's the new student of season 3, joining the rest of the Anubis students at the beginning of the term.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Her real name is Kara Tatianna, but no one calls her that, not even Victor.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: For Nina. Both are Americans who lived with elderly relatives before coming to Anubis House, both are set to solve a mystery having to do with the house, both get on Patricia's bad side during their first day.

     House Residents 

Mick Campbell

Portrayed by: Bobby Lockwood

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mick_Campbell_3465.jpg
"My hamstrings are tightening as we speak!"

Anubis House's resident athlete, Fabian's roommate, and Amber's boyfriend.


  • Back for the Finale: Mick returns in the last episode of Season 2, to surprise Mara. His actor also cameos in the last scene of "House of Return", though his presence isn't really pointed out.
  • Big Eater: Even the actors acknowledged Mick's tendency to eat- his eating scenes are written in the script, and as such, he was nearly always scarfing down food. Apparently the actor isn't much better, either.
  • Demoted to Extra: His Love Triangle plot with Amber and Mara was a focus in Season 1, but he's not as much of a focus in season 2. He's even gone for half of the second season, and then he doesn't show up at all in season 3.
  • Dumb Jock: He's a talented and determined athlete, but not a great student, even as he does try his best to study for the sake of becoming a doctor.
  • Dumb Blonde: Mick is the blond jock, known for being good at sports, but not good at school work. It's shown that when he really tries he can do well, but struggles a lot.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Comes into class after working out, sweaty and carrying a basketball.
  • Lovable Jock: He's a masculine jock, but he's also extremely sweet and friendly, best exemplified through his friendship with the nerdy Fabian- despite their differences, they're such close friends that Fabian was devastated when he left.
  • Put on a Bus: He goes to a private school in Australia for the second half of the second season.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Manly Man to Adorkable Extreme Doormat Fabian's Sensitive Guy. Compared to the nerdy and emotional Fabian, Mick is a masculine jock who spends most of his time trying to practice his athletics.

Mara Jaffray

Portrayed by: Tasie Dhanraj

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mara_Jaffray_3244.jpg
"You're not rotten."

A smart, kind young Anubis student. She's Amber's best friend, but there's some romantic tension between Mara and Mick.


  • Adorkable: She's the smartest person in the House and is rather pretty, and gets pretty adorable when she's happy about something.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Her actress is half Guyanese, but it's never explained what Mara's in-universe ethnicity is. The most we get is a vague picture of her father, who appears to be black.
  • Bad Liar: Downplayed, as she doesn't lie that often, but when Patricia needed her to act as a cover when stealing from Mr.Sweet's office, she made up a story about endangered hedgehogs, struggling even just to keep Mr.Sweet engaged in the discussion.
  • Brainy Brunette: She's the smartest in the House of Anubis, and has dark brown/black hair.
  • Be a Whore to Get Your Man: Mara does a kid-friendly version of this to attract Mick in the first season- she dresses up in rebellious clothes, wears a lot of makeup, and starts to act even snarkier and ruder than Patricia. It's subverted however, because Mick likes her just the way she is.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She has her moments.
    Mara: Amber, you're supposed to be helping me do the dishes.
    Amber: But I hate doing the dishes, the water makes my hands all wrinkly.
    Mara: I know. If only there were some sort of glove, made of rubber, that could protect your hands from water.
  • Demoted to Extra: She doesn't play as prominent of a role in Season 2 or the end of Season 1, being mostly around for the romance subplot with Jerome and Mick.
  • Establishing Character Moment: She's friendly with Amber in class, but can't stop staring at Mick.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger: Joins Sibuna in "Touchstone of Ra" so they can make use of her smarts.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Mara gets jealous when Mick starts getting his sports training from Mrs. Robinson— and, because of said jealousy, tries to frame the two of them for a Teacher/Student Romance.
  • Lovable Nerd: A sweet, humble, friendly girl, who also happens to be a massive nerd that even looks smart compared to Fabian.
  • Oblivious to Love: In the majority of the first two seasons, Mara is painfully oblivious to Jerome's crush on her. It gets to where she fake dates him to make her long distance ex jealous, and this exchange occurs:
    Mara: Look at these pictures, it looks like you're really in love.
    Jerome: (staring at her longingly and not listening) What?
    Mara: I said, you're a really great actor.
  • Opposites Attract: First with Mick (when they're together, people refer to them as "the mathlete and the athlete"), then with resident Manipulative Bastard and Jerk with a Heart of Gold Jerome.
  • Short-Lived Leadership: After a small competition with Joy, Mara is given the role as head editor of the school's new news site. She gets to work on writing a piece on Vera, which quickly turns into an expose when she realizes Vera's background information is falsified and shady. This leads to a hearing in which Vera tricks everyone into believing Mara lied. While Mara's expulsion was immediately taken back by Mr. Sweet, she was fired from the paper, and Joy got the position.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Her first time was in the middle of the first season, when she was angry at Mick calling her boring and re-invented herself for a few days, becoming much ruder and more careless. She also tried to expel him. In the third season, though, it was Jerome cheating on her that made her grow into a jerkass, doing whatever she can to get revenge on him. It was fine at first, but then she decided to have Joy pretend to fall in love with him, then break his heart in front of the school. After finding out Joy really did fall for Jerome, she flipped, and turned on her. Only in the end did she calm down and become a better friend. However, this was somewhat justified, as she still had feelings for Jerome and was really heartbroken, and felt betrayed by Joy.
  • Yandere: Mara is usually a nice nerdy girl. In a relationship, she can be a really sweet, supporting girlfriend...but if you dismiss her, or even worse, cheat on her, she will do something to destroy you.

Jerome Clarke

Portrayed by: Eugene Simon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Jerome_Clark_2138.jpg
"Team Clarke: 1. Rest of the world: 0!"

A manipulative prankster, and Alfie's best friend.


  • Anti-Hero: Jerome was a very selfish and dark character, willing to do things like steal, lie, blackmail, cheat, or manipulate others to get his way. Despite his generally shady and callous personality, he has never wanted anyone to actually get hurt- and has gone to great lengths to protect people he cares about and do the right thing when it comes down to the wire. He teamed up with Sibuna in season 1, worked to save Trudy in season 2, and still kept his morally-ambiguous qualities in season 3, where he dipped back into his selfish and manipulative ways, but then proved to still be a good person with good intentions.
  • Betty and Veronica: The aloof, snarky, rebellious Veronica to Mick's sweet-natured Betty in the fight for Mara's affections.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Despite getting into fights with Poppy and picking on her, he loves her deep down. At one point, he tried to hide letters from their father in prison, trying to protect her from the truth. Later, when Rufus threatens to kidnap her too, he panics and begs him not to.
  • Brutal Honesty
    Patricia: Sorry, I bet I've been driving you all crazy.
    Everyone: No.
    Jerome: Yes.
  • Daddy Had a Good Reason for Abandoning You: His dad was in prison and he always thought he just left. This left a bitter feeling for a while, until they finally reconciled, with his dad making it clear he does want to be in his children's life.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Jerome is quite snarky, often responding with blunt comments at a time when everyone else tries to be polite, or outright mocking his fellow housemates through his commentary.
  • Demoted to Extra: After his highly active role in seasons 1 and 2, Jerome's biggest role in Season 3 was just a romance subplot, being uninvolved in the mystery plot, despite being one of the four descendants. He was even less important in the Touchstone of Ra, being one of only two Anubis students who weren't involved in the mystery plot.
  • Establishing Character Moment: He is scamming a student out of his money for a cheat sheet.
  • Freudian Excuse: Jerome's mischievous behavior is partially explained by the fact that his parents left him at House Of Anubis to get rid of him.
  • The Gadfly: Particularly in season 1, he starts drama for no reason other than because It Amused Me.
  • Hates Their Parent: Jerome initially hated his father for all of the mistakes he'd made, which had eventually landed him in prison and forced him to abandon Jerome and his daughter, Poppy. Even when they reunited, Jerome was almost too angry to actually speak with him, even comparing him negatively to Darth Vader. However, when they actually began to talk, and when it was clear that John wanted to be a good parent, Jerome cooled down, and their relationship grew strong.
  • Hidden Depths: In the beginning of the show he is shown as nothing more than a manipulative jerk who will even trick his best friend into humiliating himself for a cheap laugh. However, later on he reveals a softer, more sensitive side to Mara Jaffray, including the truth that his family abandoned him when he was five years old. He reverts back to his old self after Mara and her old boyfriend get back together, to the point where he helps the antagonist, but even then his hidden depths are still showing as he proves to be more of a misunderstood Anti-Hero than the minor antagonist he was originally portrayed as.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Jerome is known for being manipulative, greedy, selfish and rude to everyone around him, including his best friend Alfie, who he has gleefully mistreated on more than one occasion. But when the chips are down, he proves he does care about his housemates, and in Season 2, he stopped at nothing to help his father. The people most prone to making him show his good side, besides his family, are Mara and Joy, drawing a sharp contrast between his nasty persona and his sweet inner-self.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He gleefully toys with his housemates at every chance he gets, often just for his own personal amusement or minor gain. He orchestrated a whole scheme to make Mick believe Amber and Alfie were dating, which worked until Fabian caught him in the act. He tricked Alfie into betraying the Sibuna gang for him, by making it seem as though the Sibunas had abandoned him. He even tricked everyone into holding a "Donkey Day", just in an effort to get money.
  • Scholarship Student: Season 3 reveals that he's at the school as part of a "Candy" scholarship program. The entire reason he was so dedicated to work on the Eclipse project was because his scholarship status was being threatened. Of course, Mr.Sweet was behind the scholarship, and only brought him to the school because he's a descendant.
  • Sixth Ranger: Jerome technically joins Sibuna for protection from his "boss" Rufus Zeno. Joins up with Sibuna again in Season 2 So they could rescue Trudy who had been kidnapped by Rufus.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: At first manipulative and uncaring, he eventually showed a much better side to Mara when she got to know him, and this put him on the path to becoming a better person. Case in point—in the first season, he allied with Rufus out of jealousy of Sibuna's closeness. In the second season, he started helping Rufus again—to rescue the kidnapped Trudy and find the stolen gem. He took another level in jerkass in season three though.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: He likes apples, and is seen with them in several scenes in all three seasons.
  • What Does She See in Him?: Doesn't see why Mara would be with someone as dumb as Mick, while he himself is just as interested and treats her well. He shows much frustration whenever Mara happens to be with Mick and not him.

Joy Mercer

Portrayed by: Klariza Clayton

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Joy_Mercer_1248.png
"I don't want to be The Chosen One, you hear?!"

A student who is called away from the school under odd circumstances. Her disappearance is a major part of the plot in Season 1.


  • Abhorrent Admirer : She is this to Fabian in all season 2 and part of season 3, before Fabian rejects her harshly enough for her to quit Sibuna. Here, the admirer's abhorrence doesn't come from her looks, but from her actions- he finds her annoying and clingy, and still has feelings for Nina.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Kind of. She has dark brown hair, and though she is rather extroverted and loves attention, her cunning nature and insecurities give her shades of this trope.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Her actress is half Filipina, but Joy's own ethnicity is never addressed.
  • Betty and Veronica: In the Nina/Fabian/Joy love triangle, Nina was the Betty and Joy the Veronica. Nina was Fabian's kind, heroic, and shy friend, who was most similar to him in terms of personality. Joy, meanwhile, was his former best friend and a near-perfect contrast to Nina, being extroverted, gossipy, cunning, and not nearly as interested in academics than Fabian is.
  • Brainy Brunette: She has dark brown hair and is very smart and cunning.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: To Fabian in Season 2. All she wanted was to be with him and get Nina out of the picture, which caused her to pull such tricks as wearing Nina's mask to get a kiss from Fabian, to writing slander about Nina under Mara's writing alias, all out of jealousy.
  • Demoted to Extra: Spent most of Season 3 involved in a romance subplot unrelated to the main mystery at hand, despite being one of the four descendants. He was even less important in the Touchstone of Ra, being one of only two Anubis students who weren't involved in the mystery plot.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Joy went through a phase of this during the beginning of season 3, when she was trying to get over Fabian and re-invent herself, and found Mara and Willow's sympathy to be annoying.
  • Establishing Character Moment: She and Patricia are goofing around and being best friends. Joy is affectionate towards Fabian, but teases his choice in literature.
  • Freudian Excuse: Joy manipulating Fabian, posting horrible slander about Nina on the school website to ruin her image and try to make her leave the school, and committing plagiarism are all due to her excuse of thinking Nina has stolen everything from her. Subverted from an In-Universe perspective though: She tries to invoke it to justify her behavior, but none of her friends are buying it.
  • Gasp of Life: In the season 2 finale she gets hit by Nina's lightning and temporarily dies. She's brought back by Victor and upon her resurrection breaks into a coughing fit to signal she's awake.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Joy is extremely jealous towards Nina, and in her jealousy ends up trying to hurt her, in an effort to take Fabian for herself. Schemes include kissing Fabian while he thinks she's Nina, writing a cruel article, and purposefully making Fabian spend as much time with her as possible while Nina is left out.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Joy is this for Fabian, having liked him for at least a year BEFORE Nina even knew Fabian. even AFTER Nina leaves, Fabian still turns her down, and rather rudely too.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: She wanted a normal life during season 1, when she was being held up like a prisoner in her own house and forced to never contact her friends because she was the 'Chosen One'.
  • Immoral Journalist: Briefly became one in season 2, once she became editor of the school news blog, "The Jackal". In an effort to bully Nina out of the school, she posted an anonymous article bashing her for things like skipping class or not visiting her hospitalized grandmother, written to make Nina sound like a bad person. Her other friends called her out on being a poor journalist, especially in comparison to the much more informative and considerate Mara, whose blogging alias was what Joy used in writing the Nina article, allowing her to temporarily take credit for the stuff Mara actually wrote.
  • Insane Troll Logic: Claims that Nina "stole" Fabian from her, even though she and Fabian were never dating. As much as Patricia points this out, Joy continues to insist that Nina stole everything from her, simply because things had changed in the time she was gone.
  • Intentional Heartbreaker: At Mara's convincing, she flirted with and dated Jerome with full intention of breaking his heart in revenge for his cheating. However, she started to actually fall for him, and attempted to convince Mara to stop "Operation Jerome". It didn't work.
  • Ironic Name: It seems that Joy's name will never fit her life, considering she was kidnapped, the boy she loved for a while rejected her constantly and rather harshly, her friends all seemed to like Nina more, and when she finally fell in love again it was ripped away from her at the end. No wonder her nickname is Joyless...
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: In the Season Finale, when she encourages Fabian to go be with Nina, after an entire season of trying to win him over and get Nina out of the picture.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While Joy spends a good chunk of Season 2 being a jealous and petty bully to Nina, and even goes so far as to hurt Mara with no remorse simply to be selfish, she still cared enough to help Fabian rescue Nina, and then perform a Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Scholarship Student: Season 3 reveals that she's at the school as part of a "Candy" scholarship program. The entire reason she was so dedicated to work on the Eclipse project was because her scholarship status was being threatened. Of course, Mr.Sweet was behind the scholarship, and only brought her to the school because she's a descendant.
  • Shipper on Deck: Downplayed; she's in favor of Patricia and Eddie being together, and even tries to give Patricia the necessary advice to properly date him, but doesn't go to any extreme lengths to make it happen.
  • Shipping Torpedo: She made no secret of her love for Fabian or her dislike for him and Nina dating, and did whatever she could to get them apart.
  • Sixth Ranger: She was important to the mystery in the first season and was added into Sibuna by the end of season 2 after helping to rescue Nina from under the Senet board. In season 3 she is a full member of the team, but she quits after Fabian breaks her heart.
  • Taking the Bullet: Protects Fabian from a Senkahra-possessed Nina hurling a lightning bolt this way, and nearly dies because of it.
  • Took A Level In Jerk Ass: Joy has been acting like a colossal Jerkass in Season 2, capped off with writing a vicious attack article about Nina all because of jealousy over the fact that Fabian loves Nina and not her. (In her words, Nina has "stolen her boyfriend" even though she and Fabian were never dating.) If we're to believe Patricia and Fabian, this isn't the way that the Joy they know and love typically acts. She has gotten called out on it, by Amber, Jerome and Eddie in front of their entire class, and even Patricia thinks Joy can't continue to re-use her excuse of having been kidnapped last term as to why everyone's so out of sync with her.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: When she joined Sibuna in the second season, after spending the rest of the time being petty, jealous, and rude to her housemates. She helped them to rescue Nina just because Fabian asked, even though she and Nina were rivals, and then took a lightning bolt for Fabian, nearly dying in the process.
  • The Unapologetic: When she tries to talk to Nina about the he kiss with Fabian, Nina asks if it's supposed to be her way of saying sorry. Joy responds by saying, "I wasn't going to apologize."

Willow Jenks

Portrayed by: Louisa Connolly-Burnham

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/42713a4c3a8eed431015515da6bd7c92.png
"To Squee!, or not to Squee? Squee!"

A new Season 3 character from Isis House who soon transfers to Anubis. She's a bit odd, but very friendly.


  • Ascended Fangirl: Kind of. At the beginning of the third season, she's not even a part of Anubis House but hangs out with them anyway because she thinks the people there are so cool. Later in the season, she got to transfer into Anubis House.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: She's eccentric and often has her head in the clouds, doing such things as sprinkling things with cypress oil to remove bad energies and raising wild hedgehogs (named after Trudy and Victor).
  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: After Victor becomes a Sinner, Willow can immediately sense that something's wrong with him, but her strange way of expressing it only confuses the other students.
  • The Ditz: She comes across as ditzy in moments, making random and silly remarks. For instance, she once claimed that pottery was her favorite type of science.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Found in Amber's bedroom, fawning over Anubis House while playing with a prism.
  • Genki Girl: She is VERY energetic, talkative, and easily-excited, at nearly all times. Mara lampshades this.
    Mara: She's just so peppy and upbeat! I should ask her what her secret is.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Miss Denby and Robert Frobisher-Smythe tried to turn her into a sinner, but they couldn't get her to sin, no matter what they tried.
  • New-Age Retro Hippie: She claims to be able to sense "vibes" (and, according to her, bad vibes can be removed by sprinkling cypress oil everywhere), and she meditates frequently and loudly, much to her roommate Mara's chagrin.
  • Squee!: This is practically her catchphrase, such as the infamous line, "To squee or not to squee? SQUEE!" It shows her as exciteable and upbeat.

     Faculty 

Victor Rodenmaar Jr.

Portrayed by: Francis Magee

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/081e23497692d882c14e6786448feb8e.jpg
"You have five minutes precisely, and then I want to hear a pin drop."

The guy in charge of the House of Anubis. Definitely creepy and definitely up to something.


  • Berserk Button: He completely loses it at Alfie in "House of Heiroglyph" when Alfie refers to Corbierre as a "dead crow":
    Victor: (through gritted teeth) Corbierre is a raven!
  • Big Bad: He seemed like this at first, but this was subverted at the end of the season finale, where it was implied that he was more ignorant than evil. He just wanted to be immortal and was unaware of the price of that immortality. (He believed that the tipping of the scales of life was symbolic and was genuinely shocked to learn otherwise.)
  • Break the Cutie: This happened to Victor when he was little. After his father gave him a verbal lashing, he broke his friendship with Sarah because he thought she wouldn't tell him any information, such as where the Ankh pieces were.
  • Catchphrase: "You have five minutes precisely, and then I want to hear a pin drop."
  • Companion Cube: Corbierre, Victor's stuffed raven, his "pride and joy". He loves it to the point of being devastated when one of the students "kidnapped" it, and speaks to it as if it's alive. Played with too, as it belonged to his father and probably was alive at some point.
  • Establishing Character Moment: He appears out of nowhere, startling Nina, and reprimands her for entering without knocking.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Victor Rodenmaar, despite having had antagonized and pushed Sarah Frobisher-Smythe towards revealing a secret she didn't know, the two were very close childhood friends and he reacted with genuine grief when she died. He also reacts very strongly when anyone mention his deceased father in a negative light.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Victor Rodenmaar. No matter how badly he himself may act towards the students, when they are in danger, he responds protectively over them. For instance, when Alfie is captured in the Senet game, Victor is deeply disturbed by this and says to Vera that harming the students wasn't part of the plan. Another time, he chose to save Joy's life rather than use his last tear of gold for himself.
  • Evil Former Friend: With Sarah. He actually did consider her a friend before, but his father rid him of that notion.
  • Freudian Excuse: Victor actually did see Sarah as a friend at one point, but his father changed all that, threatening to send him to the orphanage if he didn't aid him in getting Sarah's secrets.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Despite being the villain, he is proven to really care about the students deep down, when he kicked Vera out for hurting the students and sacrificing his last tear of gold to save a dying Joy Mercer.
  • Immortality Seeker: Victor and his society all want the secret to eternal life. Victor's father had been after it as well, which meant Victor's basic goal was to finish his father's dream.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite being the villain, he is proven to really care about the students deep down, when he kicked Vera out for hurting the students and sacrificing his last tear of gold to save a dying Joy Mercer. See Even Evil Has Standards above.
  • The Killjoy: He gets very easily annoyed when the students do...well, anything, but especially when they try and have fun. There are several times when he'll walk in on them talking happily amongst themselves and demand they stop being so noisy and get to class, he once temporarily stopped a party just by walking in and glaring at everyone, and the one and only time he was interested in participating in any sort of party, he was a Sinner trying to trick the students, and the party was still considered incredibly dull by literally everyone.
  • Noble Demon: Demonstrated on multiple occasions. He may be after immortality and constantly makes the children's lives difficult, but doesn't have any interest in using evil acts to fulfill his goals- even getting upset when Vera showed a willingness to put the kids in unnecessary danger.
  • Older Than He Looks: Victor is really ninety-five years old, but looks middle-aged.
  • Taxidermy Is Creepy: Victor practices taxidermy and has stuffed animals everywhere in the house. His pride and joy, the raven Corbierre, is by far the creepiest, disturbing the students to no end.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: He always wanted to live up to his father's expectations and fulfill his unfinished mission of getting immortality.

Jason Winkler

portrayed by Jack Donolly

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/olgbrw_u.jpeg
"Curiouser and curiouser."

The new, handsome teacher at the school who catches the eye of every female in the show. He's suspicious of Joy's disappearance and also seeks to find out the truth. He joins up with Patricia but parts to join in Victor's Society.


  • Ambiguous Allegiance: He was a good guy at first, and then he started to unravel the mystery of Joy Mercer's disappearance. Ultimately, this led him to Victor and the next thing the viewers knew, he had joined Victor's society. This spawned some debate among fans of the series as to whether Jason was being forced to cooperate with the society or whether he had joined of his own free will. (A third theory is that he is The Mole, pretending to be loyal to the society in order to gather information on them.) Turned out, he was slowly dying and needed The Cup of Ankh to save himself.
  • Anti-Villain: He was only really a villain by way of being a member of the Secret Society and betraying Patricia. He was always more interested in his teaching job and the students, and even after betraying Patricia, still clearly cared about her. In the finale, he attempted to get Victor and the other teachers to help Sibuna, who were trapped with Rufus Zeno. It was then revealed that the only reason he joined the Society at all was because the elixir of life, which makes one immortal, would have saved him from dying of his degenerative illness. In a deleted scene, he even got to talk to Patricia one last time before disappearing from the show. He was never at all a bad guy, he had just made the wrong choices.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He was the only person Patricia trusted to help her find Joy, and after they uncovered a lot of evidence, he confronted Victor...and was converted to the Secret Society, becoming her enemy.
  • Hot Teacher: The female students certainly think so, being immediately attracted to him on his first day- it helps that he's young and friendly.
  • Ill Boy: He has a rare degenerative disease, which is his reason for siding with Victor.
  • Noble Demon: Although he joins the Society and thus becomes one of the bad guys, he is still shown to be a generally nice guy. Of course, he only joins the Society because he has a degenerative disease and will die unless he gains immortality by drinking out of the Cup. Mr. Sweet and Ms. Andrews also show themselves to be concerned for the students as well. (Such as when Rufus kidnaps Patricia.)
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Doesn't return in Season 2, and nothing is ever mentioned, leading many to assume he died in between.

Eric Sweet

portrayed by Paul Anthony-Barber

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mrsweet.jpg
"Fastina Lente. More speed, less haste."

The dorky headmaster of the school, as well as the school's science professor. A member of Victor's society.


  • Bumbling Dad: He's Eddie's dorky, embarrassing, yet loving, father. As much as he tries, he struggles greatly with being a parent.
  • Disappeared Dad: Left Eddie, since he was just a child, to focus on his work in England. Eddie had no idea why he left or if he even wanted him, and even after their reunion, it left his son with a lot of insecurities.
  • Gratuitous Latin: He says a lot of stuff in Latin that he could just say in English. Then he says them in English anyway.
  • Grew a Spine: Spent all of the first season and most of the second being bossed around by Victor, mocked by the students, and generally seen as a bumbling oaf. However, halfway through Season 2, he got sick of being mistreated, and outright snapped at Victor when he tried to give him an order. In Season 3, he's far more independent and assertive, making it clear that his job as "The Seeker" will not be dominated by his partners.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After spending an entire season working with Victor, Season 2 had him refuse to help him find the Book of Isis, choosing instead to focus on his duties as a headmaster. However, in season 3, he relapsed into villainy, helping Victor and Denby to complete their ceremony, and then being turned into a sinner, whose only purpose was to spread evil.
  • Large Ham: As a sinner, he began to just shout at students for no reason, and delivered over-the-top lines, such as:
    You look like an orangutan!
  • Smart People Know Latin: He is versed in Latin and routinely spouts Latin phrases, presumably to demonstrate how smart he is.

Trudy Rehmann

portrayed by Mina Anwar

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/68747470733a2f2f73332e616d617a6f6e6177732e636f6d2f776174747061642d6d656469612d736572766963652f53746f7279496d6167652f70304430683345417930686557513d3d2d3732313830393530392e31353937313232373631623632623963373533393334.jpg
"Oh, Victor. What lovely roses."

The kind, hard-working House Mother of Anubis House.


  • Damsel in Distress: In Season 2, she gets captured by Vera, and held captive in a barn, forced to be rescued by the students. She does manage to leave a note hinting that she's in danger, but is otherwise helpless against The Collector.
  • Nice Guy: She's extremely kind and motherly to everyone, whether it's caring for the kids unconditionally and trying to help them, working hard to help Jasper with the exhibition, or even being sweet and polite to Victor, despite his attitude.
  • Only Sane Employee: Trudy does pretty much all the actual running of the House with no help from Victor. All Victor does is creep around and hand out punishments to the kids when they get too close to his secrets, and the actual teachers are all too absorbed in their scheme.
  • Poke the Poodle: Her time as a Sinner is spent baking "evil" food made of "sugar and fat" for the other Sinners, and then laughing with them in the living room. Seems even when evil, she doesn't know how to be evil.
  • Sweet Baker: Known for making great cakes, cookies, brownies and more, and she's also very sweet herself, taking care of everyone like she's their mother.

Daphne Andrews

portrayed by Julia Deakin

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mv5bmtqxndg2otg2nf5bml5banbnxkftztgwmjyznjg3mje_v1_uy1200_cr48506301200_al.jpg
"Do you sometimes think you may be in the wrong job, Victor?"

The English and French teacher at the school, as well as a member of Victor's society.


  • Anti-Villain: Though she spends the entire first season helping Victor and acting as an antagonist, it was made very clear that she did care for the students- to the point of attempting to save Patricia from Rufus, even though it would risk the society losing their advantage. She wanted immortality, but was opposed to the way Victor went about getting it, and spend Season 2 just trying to be a good teacher.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After being a member of the society in Season 1, she turned over a new leaf in Season 2, focusing on her duties as a teacher and taking a stance against Vera, who she realized was incredibly shady, proving herself to no longer have any antagonistic intentions, nor any willingness to let anyone get hurt.

     Villains 

Rufus Zeno

portrayed by Roger Barclay

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rufus_smiling.jpg
"I think you already know what I am capable of."

A strange man in black, who has an interest in finding Joy.


  • Bad Samaritan: He first appears as a private investigator who was trying to help Patricia find Joy. Of course, it is implied he knew that Joy and Patricia were friends, and used Patricia's concern to benefit himself.
  • Big Bad: While it first appears to be Victor, it turns out that Rufus is the true driving threat of Season 1, acting as a constant source of trouble for both Victor and Sibuna, and acting as the final obstacle to overcome before the students can win.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Pretends to help Patricia to serve his own selfish needs, acting friendly right up until it's time to turn on her.
  • The Collector: His identity for most of season 2 is literally known as The Collector, as he was collecting Egyptian artifacts, and had a special interest in artifacts owned by the Frobisher-Smythes.
  • Devil in Plain Sight: He wore all black, and was basically stalking Patricia for a few episodes before they met. Despite this, she still trusts him, and it's treated as a surprise when he turns out to be evil.
  • Evil Former Friend: He was once childhood friends with Victor and Sarah. However, after learning he was an Osiran and learning certain secrets about the House, he turned on both of them.
  • Evil Wears Black: He wears the same black coat, black turtle neck and black pants in virtually all his appearances.
  • Faking the Dead: Happened once prior to the beginning of the series to throw everyone off his trail, and at the beginning of season two, he appeared in the obituary before returning as a character.
  • Fallen Hero: He was Sarah's Osirian, but he let the role go to his head, becoming power-hungry and desperate for immortality.
  • Foil: He is one to Victor in terms of antagonists to Sibuna, but unlike Victor, Rufus acts mostly in the shadows. His willingness to hurt the kids also brings out Victor's good-side, making him seem better in comparison to Rufus's evil.
  • A God Am I: At the end of Season 2, but he doesn't get a lot of time to rant about his godliness.
  • Godhood Seeker: His goal in season 2 was to use the Mask of Anubis to join the Egyptian deities as a God.
  • Karmic Death: If he hadn't put the Mask of Anubis on, he wouldn't be in Egyptian hell right now. Victor actually invoked this by trying to convince Nina to let him wear the mask.
  • Older Than They Look: He's as old as Victor and Sarah, but he doesn't look it, due to having drunk enough elixir to look much younger than 95.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Patricia had taken a huge risk and rescued him from the hospital when the teachers had put him into some sort of coma, and he repaid her by kidnapping her later on.

Senkhara

portrayed by Sophiya Haque

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maxresdefault_3_09.jpg
"Watch the timepiece."

An impatient, powerful ghost, intent on getting the Mask Of Anubis at any and all costs.


  • Big Bad: In season 2, Senkhara provided the main threat. It was her threat of death that forced the Sibuna crew to hunt down the Mask of Anubis and risk their lives defying victor and Vera. While Rufus returned to create problems, it was Senkhara's evil that pushed the plot forward, and gave Nina and her friends something to worry about.
  • Invincible Boogeymen: Compared to the other villains, she's much more dangerous and unstoppable, being a ghost that can enter dreams, lay curses, and kill people with her magic, while everyone else is just a human with shady intentions and ulterior motives. The Sibuna gang are forced to work for her and do as she says, and are unable to stop her or escape her control.
  • Reality Warper: Senkhara's powers have shades of this. She's marked most of the cast with the Mark of Anubis in their dreams; caused Fabian's memory to fail, Alfie to age backwards and Amber forward, and Patrica to lose her voice; and forced a non-stone Taken for Granite state on Vera.

Vera Devenish

Portrayed by Poppy Miller

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vera_devenish.png
"Remember the art of war, Victor."

The replacement House Mother when Trudy is helping with the Season 2 Exhibition, who is quickly revealed to have ulterior motives.


  • Faux Affably Evil: She plays up the act of being the perfect Housemother...but is ruthless and cunning in her efforts to get the Mask of Anubis for Rufus.
  • Karma Houdini: She did plenty of horrible things, like kidnap Trudy, and many fans were crying out for her karma. In the end, however, she literally was just told to walk offscreen and that was the end of it.
  • Kick the Dog: Her notable ones include the time she convinced Victor to steal the Ox Bell needed for the next task from the exhibition, and then frame one of the Sibunas- one of the first times one of the teachers actually expressed a desire to hurt the students instead of just stopping them from completing their mystery, and then again when she kidnaps Trudy and sends him off to The Collector, after Trudy confronted her about the theft. There was also the time she expressed absolutely no care when Alfie fell through the floor during senet- an action that even Victor found disgusting. And these are just a few of her horrible, horrible moments.
  • The Mole: Though she pretends to be helping Victor, is actually working for The Collector. She uses her power to make Jasper a mole, as well, though he's unwilling and terrified.

Harriet/Caroline Denby

portrayed by Susey Kane

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/caroline_0.png
"Here is a list of odd jobs I want done."

The new history teacher who may know more than she leads on. She's actually "The Keeper". The one who holds "The Sleeper" awaiting the day of the eclipse to perform the ritual to revive Robert Frobisher-Smythe.


  • Ambition Is Evil: Doesn't get anymore evil than ultimately selling out humanity to a dark god for a seat in Hell on Earth.
  • The Corrupter: To Robert, as it was her influence that turned him evil in the first place. The two go on to try to corrupt others in Ammut's services.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: For all her evil, and hating she always seemed to draw a line at actually killing her sister. Of course, what she does do to her isn't that much better, with Caroline poisoning her mind and getting her locked in an instituion.
  • Evil Teacher: Not only is she a new teacher in season 3, but one of the new antagonists as well, and uses her position as a teacher to mess with the students more easily.
  • Faux Affably Evil: She seems like the perfect teacher, but is a skilled Manipulative Bastard who keeps her stepsister locked up, makes subtle threats towards Sibuna, and will hurt anyone to get what she wants—and was a whole lot more successful than Vera.
  • Kick the Dog: Most notably, when she planted fake evidence of cheating on Eddie's computer and tricked Patricia into reading it, effectively breaking her heart and making her break down in tears for the first time in the show. This was only days after she and Eddie had gotten back together, and Denby's motive was nothing more than trying to provoke Patricia into being a sinner. It worked.
  • Manipulative Bastard: She spends most of Season 3 scheming in an effort to push herself ahead, tricking others into doing exactly what she needs them to. Her manipulative abilities were showed off when she took advantage of Patricia's relationship insecurities, and convinced her that Eddie was cheating on her, making her turn into a sinner. She also convinced everyone that she was actually Harriet Denby, her step-sister, pulling the strings so that she became the Keeper, rather than her sister.
  • The Starscream: Functions as The Dragon to Robert, only to betray him in the series finale and attempt to Take Over the World along with Ammut.

Robert Frobisher-Smythe

portrayed by John Sackville

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rfsawakened.jpg
"Find me that sinner."

Sarah's thought-to-be dead father. He was stricken with an egyptian sleep-ness curse and put into a capsule waiting to be awakened. He returns an evil man trying to bring in a Dark God into the world by way of ritual.


  • Big Bad: When he wakes up, he takes over as the main threat to the kids, though he is just playing The Dragon to Ammut. It's him who is collecting sinners to awaken his God, and spends his time bossing around Victor and Caroline.
  • Big Good: Seems to have once been trying to hide the artifacts from people like Victor and Rufus, and even left instructions to help future house residents stop him in the event he woke up evil.
  • Came Back Wrong: Since Caroline, an evil woman, resurrected Robert, he returned even more villainous than she.
  • Evil Is Hammy: He loves to chew the scenery as Evil!Robert:
    Robert: Today I shall deliver our next sinner and PLUNGE THEIR SOUL INTO DARKNESS!

    Others 

Sarah Frobisher-Smythe

portrayed by Rita Davies

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ritadavies.png
"Sometimes I see their faces in the mirror, but I know they aren't there..."

An old woman who claims to have lived in the House of Anubis. She gives Nina a locket which seems to have some power over the house.


  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: In a way, Sarah. While she isn't really a cuckoolander, many people do believe she is crazy including the main characters themselves, but everything she says is usually a clue to the mystery in some way. This is because she grew up with the mystery herself, as her parents were the ones who hid the treasure and the two main villains turned on her for the truth. She also happened to be the original Chosen One.
  • Mysterious Waif: A rare elderly example: she has a connection with the villain, gives the protagonist vague, cryptic advice and a mysterious trinket to assist her in her journey and captivates said protagonist with her odd and puzzling ways.
  • We Used to Be Friends: With Victor; they were friends in their childhood, but it ended after Victor's father forced him to turn on her.

Piper Williamson

portrayed by: Nikita Ramsey

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/piper12.jpg
"I recognize your talent."

Patricia's sweet-natured, musically talented twin sister, who temporarily stays at Anubis House.


  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Played With; while Piper initially seems like she'd be the foolish and naive sister, compared to Patricia's status as the least emotional member of Sibuna. However, when they actually interact, Patricia's rebellious and mischievous nature is highlighted, while Piper is the one trying to keep her in line- making Piper the responsible one, and Patricia the foolish one.
  • Nice Guy: She's a sweet, friendly girl even to Victor, contrasting Patricia's blunt, sarcastic nature. It's her genuine kindness that makes Alfie fall for her, and the only person she ever seems to get sassy with is Patricia herself.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Patricia is the bold, tomboyish, defiant and rude one; Piper is highly talented in piano, very sweet and polite, and much less inclined to make big moves out of fear of failure than her Determinator sister is. It's pretty obvious when you compare their crushes—Patricia likes Jerk with a Heart of Gold Eddie, while Piper likes the Nice Guy Class Clown Alfie.
  • Romantic False Lead: In the short time she's at the House, Alfie develops a crush on her, and she likes him back. However, she leaves before they can even act on their feelings, and her subplot seemed mostly a way to get Amber to realize she still has feelings for Alfie.
  • Unknown Relative: Though Patricia had been in Anubis House for what's implied to be several years, only her best friend Joy seemed to be aware of the existence of Piper. This allowed for a subplot where Piper stayed at Anubis House in secret, inadvertently tricking people like Alfie into thinking Patricia was suddenly being nice (and thus into thinking the crush he had was on her rather than on Piper). The moment when she revealed to everyone in the house that Piper existed was full of shocked reactions that could've only happened had Patricia simply never mentioned Piper's existence. It's implied her jealousy of Piper's talents and social skills were why she kept everyone but Joy in the dark.

Poppy Clarke

portrayed by: Frances Enell

"You really have changed, haven't you, Gerbil?"

Jerome's just-as-sneaky younger sister, introduced in the second season.


  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Jerome finds her so annoying that he even tries to hide from her when she first arrives, and he takes great pains to keep her existence a secret. She spends her time blackmailing him and annoying him, even plastering old pictures of him around the school just for some laughs. However, they do love each other when it matters.
  • Insult of Endearment: Jerome refers to her as "Poopy", which turns into an affectionate nickname once they grow closer to each other. She refers to him as "Gerbil", which goes through the same evolution.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Much like her older brother, she's manipulative, selfish, and sneaky, pulling tricks for cheap laughs or money, without much remorse. Despite this, she also does love Jerome, develops a genuine friendship with Mara, and cares a lot about being with her long-lost father.
  • Unknown Relative: While he'd been secretive about his poor relationship with his parents until he opened up to Mara in the first season, Jerome never mentioned having a little sister until she appeared at the school. Poppy herself exploited this, as she used Jerome's unwillingness to admit her existence to his friends as a way to blackmail him at the beginning of the season.

John Clarke

portrayed by: Phillip Wright

The father of Jerome and Poppy, trying to redeem himself after years of being a disappointment.


  • The Atoner: He wants nothing more than to prove he can be a good father, and undo the gem-theft he did as a teenager. Of course, being in prison, the most he can do is get to know his kids, and request that Jerome find the gem for him.
  • Disappeared Dad: Vanished from Jerome and Poppy's life when they were both young, with Poppy not even old enough to remember him. He didn't leave for any malicious reason, however; he was in prison. This still left serious scars on Jerome and Poppy, who grew up with their apathetic mother and were practically raised by their boarding schools. To his credit, he does try to make amends for what happened after they reunite.
  • Reformed Criminal: A former gem-thief who wants nothing more than to turn over a new leaf. At the end of Season 2, he's released with parole, thanks to the help of his kids.
  • Shipper on Deck: He thinks Jerome should go out with Mara, and pushes him to do so, finding it ridiculous that the two aren't already dating when he first meets her.

Jasper Choudhary

portrayed by: Sartaj Garewal

Fabian's Egyptologist godfather, and the curator of the exhibit.


  • Anti-Villain: He works for The Collector, but has no evil intentions, and is completely opposed to everything he's forced to do. He's only an antagonist by virtue of working against the students, and does whatever he can to help them after the fact.
  • The Mole: Against his own will, he's stuck working for Vera and The Collector, feeding them information and giving them stolen goods, in return for keeping himself and Fabian safe.

Ade Rutter

portrayed by: Simon Chandler

Fabian's antique-selling uncle.


  • Give Geeks a Chance: A dorky, antique-collecting historian, who manages to act as a love-interest to the sweet and pretty Trudy.
  • Shipper on Deck: He's openly disappointed when he learns Fabian hasn't started dating Nina yet, and considers them to be perfect for each other.
