Frankie Stein (voiced by Kate Higgins) is the daughter of Frankenstein's monster in most of the various franchise makings. In the books, it's Viktor and Viveka Stein where she is their granddaughter. She is the sweetest, most heartful girl at Monster High. She believes in everyone's uniqueness and individuality her most famous line is "be your self, be unique, be a monster!" she believes that just because things are tradition doesn't mean their right. Her personality is very easy going and as she says, changing the way things are is her specialty!
Draculaura (voiced by Debi Derryberry in all other appearances, Dee Dee Green in "Ghouls Rule" and "Scaris: City of Frights", Sue Swan in "13 Wishes" and "Frights, Camera Action") is a vampire and the daughter of Dracula. The character was initially 1,599 years old and turned 1,600 in the webisode "Party Planners" along with Frankie and in the film Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love, with Mattel releasing a doll line based around her birthday. Draculaura is considered a vegan-vampire, as she does not eat blood or meat, though she has been spotted eating dairy products such as ice cream; as in the first Monster High book, just labeled Monster High, she eats ice cream. She is dating Clawd Wolf, Clawdeen's older brother, and has a pet bat named Count Fabulous, and she absolutely adores pink. Draculaura is one of the most popular monsters in school.
Her bat Count Fabulous has made some appearances in the game "Monster High: Ghoul Spirit".
Draculaura is a sweet, caring, animal-looking ghoul who dresses her bat, Count Fabulous, all girly-like; which is one of her favorite addictions. Draculaura is a sweet and loving girl and her favorite class is creative-writing. she also faints when hearing the B-L-O-O-D word. Draculaura is a blood vegetarian.
Clawdeen Wolf (voiced by Salli Saffioti in all other appearances, Celeste Henderson in "Scaris: City of Frights" and "13 Wishes") is the daughter of The Werewolf. She is fifteen years old and comes from a rather large family, though she has only had three siblings seen so far (Clawdia, Clawd and Howleen). She also calls herself “The Alpha Wolf of Style”. Her best friends are Frankie Stein and Draculaura (whose father sometimes objects when Clawdeen visits her). Clawdeen complains about her younger sister Howleen (with whom she shares a bunk bed) because Howleen is constantly chewing on her shoes, borrowing her clothes, and wiping her nose on her jackets. She and her entire family (as of date) all speak with a Brooklyn accent. Clawdeen has trouble keeping her werewolf side in check; this side of her can emerge at the sight of a full moon or any other similarly bright light source as exemplified in the episode “Talon Show”. She is quite strong, being seen holding up at least three ghoulfriends in cheerleading sessions. Clawdeen dreams of owning her own fashion design brand, plays on the soccer team, and in the webisodes, it is shown that she enjoys track and field. Clawdeen disliked Cleo De Nile at first, because she incorrectly thought that Cleo had cheated on Clawd with Deuce Gorgon. After Clawd explains to her that his breakup with Cleo was in fact mutual, Clawdeen and Cleo become frenemies soon after, even though they are both on the fearleading squad. Clawdeen hated the idea of Draculaura and Clawd dating and tried to stop it but, eventually she accepted the relationship. She has a purple pet kitten named Crescent. Clawdeen Wolf is a member of Monster High's fearleading squad
Cleo de Nile
Cleo de Nile (voiced by Salli Saffioti in all other appearances, Celeste Henderson in "Scaris: City of Frights" and "13 Wishes") is the daughter of a Mummy named Ramses de Nile and the younger sister of Nefera. She is 5,842 years old. Her clothing motif is bandages and hair gold, and she wears a strangely-worn-by-no-one-else, strange, fearleading-uniform wristband this is an "unusual uniform"; and is a black, perhaps made-of-typical-band-material wristband in place of her Basic bracelet in the webisodes. This wristband is certainly not worn anywhere else but the webisodes, and officially made its first appearance in New Ghoul @ School, when Cleo took over as fearleading captain when Nefera graduated. Cleo does not get along with Nefera because Nefera uses every opportunity she can to humiliate her younger sister and get her into trouble with her father. Cleo is considered spoiled rotten, but will always help her friends if necessary. Cleo does have a good heart, but hides it behind her popularity. Cleo is also the tallest girl out of her main group of friends. She is the leader of the fearleading team. Her true love is Deuce.
Deuce Gorgon (voiced by Yuri Lowenthal in Volumes 1 and 2, Cam Clarke in Volume 3, Evan Smith in the CGI TV Specials and the rest of Volume 3 in the webisodes) is the son of the gorgon Medusa. Like his mother, he has snakes for hair, which he styles in a "snakehawk". He is 16 years old and hopes to get his drivers' license soon. He is a member of the casketball team. He also loves to cook and is quite a skilled chef, but he is too self-conscious to showcase his culinary ability to anyone. Deuce inherited his mother's ability to turn people into stone, though he has been able to control the effect so that it lasts for only about twenty-four hours. His petrifying stare does not work on gargoyles which he learns by bumping into Rochelle Goyle. He takes off his sunglasses only when he talks to her. In "Hiss-teria", he reveals that he accidentally petrified his first pet (a dragon named Smokey) when he was a young boy and the effect has lingered to the present day. Deuce is dating Cleo, who seems to always find new ways for him to spend all his money on her. Despite that, Deuce genuinely loves Cleo and wrote a song to express his feelings for her. His pet is a two-tailed rat which he named Perseus after Perseus who Medusa clashed with in her past. Understandably, Medusa is not amused. His favorite color is neon green, which neon green is the color of his hair and Neon Green eyes. His favorite food is "Greek Fusion" (his own creation).
Lagoona Blue (voiced by Laura Bailey) is the daughter of the Gill-man and an oceanid. She is one of the best swimmers on the Monster High swimming team along with Gil Webber (her boyfriend). Her name literally comes from a phrase-word "languna", which is Polish, Spanish, (and) Russian, perhaps some other Latin languages and European languages for the word "lagoon", making her full name a pun off of "blue lagoon". This language might already be known as from the Californian beach: "Laguna Beach". Lagoona Blue has the ability to speak to and have them help of all types of water animals, she speaks with an Australian accent and she is the ghoul in school with one of the biggest hearts, in line with Frankie and Draculaura, but even though her heart is big there are some people who don't like her (Gil's parents).
Ghoulia Yelps (voiced by Audu Paden) is the daughter of a zombie couple. She is 16 in monster years and has a pet baby blue owl named Sir Hoots a Lot. The smartest ghoul at Monster High, Ghoulia is a shy and bookish girl, but her best friend, Cleo de Nile, refuses to let her be the wallflower at a party. She can only speak in the zombie language (moans and groans) due to physical limitations that all zombies have. Ghoulia's social life has improved greatly since befriending Cleo. She is the shortest girl at Monster High. Part of this may be because as a zombie, she never stands up straight. Ghoulia has a romantic interest in Slo-Moe, a tall male zombie on the chess team. Ghoulia is well-known to be a hardcore fan of "Dead Fast", an in-universe comic book series. She also has a love for the game of dodgeball. Her favorite color is red.
Abbey Bominable (voiced by Erin Fitzgerald) is the sixteen year old daughter of the Yeti. Her original language is "Russian-Yetish", the Russian version of Yetish, if the language and accent are not all the same, perhaps. Like opposites attract, Abbey feels the same way about Heath Burns as he does for her; as properly by her culture, she is flattered by his crush on her, and like-likes him back. Heath is still pretty flirtatious, but no ghoul could possibly melt his flaming heart like the "Most Beautiful Ghoul in School", Abbey Bominable. In her basic look, she wears bright-purple eyeshadow on her lids, with pink on the creases, pink lipstick to go, has long lashes that look fake in all outfits of the whole franchise and wears a fuzzy, white headband, holding her bangs back to expose more of her forehead. Abbey likes delicacy yak-meat (which yak is a popular animal where she comes from). Abbey has yeti-tusks that pop up from the bottom of her mouth, touching her upper lip. She can freeze anything into ice with her "yeti powers". Abbey is also noted by fans (said how pretty she is) and Monster High males (shown by looks in "Back-to-Ghoul", even by Deuce Gorgon as to be "The Prettiest Ghoul (or girl) in School". Her parents are good friends with Headless Headmistress Bloodgood where she lets Abbey stay at her house during the school week.
Spectra Vondergeist (voiced by Erin Fitzgerald) is the daughter of two ghosts. She is sixteen in monster years, same as Ghoulia Yelps. She can haunt the halls of Monster High, and literally see things that no one else can (Due to her ability to sneak through walls and under the grounds). Spectra posts the "Ghostly Gossip" blog, and wears magenta-and-purple like makeups and clothings. Her favorite color is violet and she has hair straighter in the doll line than in the webisodes. Like Abbey, she is a rare meaning of the words main character. Spectra is first introduced in the show in the episode "Why Do Ghouls Fall in Love?", and she's as also shown in picture in almost all the book-intros of the CGI specials. She also runs a blog called "The Ghostly Gossip."'
Monster High students
Madison Fear (voiced by Madison Beer) is the daughter of two sirens and is age fourteen. Her best friends are Frankie Stein and Draculaura.
Jackson Jekyll and Holt Hyde
Jackson Jekyll (voiced by Cindy Robinson) is a cute normie boy at Monster High, and enjoys sports (because he is athletic due to Holt) and video games. Jackson is the son of Dr. Henry Jekyll and Sydney Jekyll.
Holt Hyde (also voiced by Cindy Robinson) is the alter-ego version of Jackson Jekyll, who he turns into when loud music plays (sweat in the Lisi Harrison novels). He is smart (Jackson), polite (Gigi in Monster High: 13 Wishes), cool, overacting, and actually quite hotheaded of a temper and an attitude, same as Operetta. Holt hates being told what to do, and is less educated than Jackson due to spending less time on the outside as Jackson being the "real deal" (main one), but Holt is still as real as ever. It actually makes sense for him to be voiced by a female, having the higher pitch of voice than Jackson. He is thought of as a "criminal", but still hates being accused of being thought of doing something he did not do, such as "Ghouls Rule".
Clawd Wolf (voiced by Yuri Lowenthal in "Fur Will Fly", Ogie Banks in later appearances, Marcus Griffin in "13 Wishes" and "Frights, Camera, Action") is the son of the Werewolf who is also the 17-year-old older brother of Clawdeen, Howleen, and Clawdia. According to "Bat Dialing Disaster", he has already had his birthday, which must officially make him 18 years old. He is the oldest child still living in his parent's house. He dated Cleo prior to Frankie attending Monster High in the dolls' diaries when he was struck by one of C.A. Cupid's arrows. Eventually, the magic wore off and he broke up with Cleo who began dating Deuce the next day. Clawd is the Big Monster on Campus and plays on the casketball team with Deuce. In the second wave of dolls, he loved Draculaura for so long. At first, he thought of her as a friend, but she eventually reciprocated his feelings and now the two are a couple. He owns a pet gargoyle bulldog named Rockseena. He is also overprotective of his sisters Clawdeen and Howleen according to "Fright On!".
Heath Burns (voiced by Yuri Lowenthal in Volume 1, Cam Clarke in the other volumes) is a teenage son of two Fire Elementals. His name is a pun on "heat burns". In the Polish version of Monster High webisodes, his name is Russ. He is the cousin of Jackson, revealed in Jackson's first appearance "Fear Pressure", making him Holt's cousin as a fire elemental (Holt's a fire elemental). He was first seen as a background character in "Substitute Creature". In "The Hot Boy", he was shown to be Draculaura's short-lived crush. Heath has since become a regular character in the webisodes, and the character has been trademarked for a doll. Trademarkia listing for Mattel - Heath Burns. In "Fear Pressure," he mentions that Jackson is his normie cousin, a possible reference to when many fans confused Heath for Holt Hyde. Heath's first mention in the dolls' continuity is in Abbey's diary where he is constantly hitting on her with corny one-liners. Heath primarily serves as the comedy relief, being the butt of many physical jokes and the class clown. In the first novel, Heath appears to be a normie (human). In Book 2, "The Ghoul Next Door," this Heath is revealed to be a RAD when he sneezes fire. He explains that his ability appeared when he turned 15. Starting out as gassy outbursts, Heath's ability is still dangerous.
Manny Taur (voiced by Audu Paden) is the son of the Minotaur and a school bully who picks on Jackson Jekyll and the little devil boy. Manny also has a dislike of zombies. The CGI projects show him to be friends of Heath Burns and Holt Hyde. He has a little sister named Minnie according to Frankie in "Miss Infearmation."
Simon Clops is an extremely tall cyclops who is a member of the casketball team. He is good friends with his casketball teammates and Manny Taur.
Toralei Stripe (voiced by America Young) is 15 years old, the daughter of the Werecat whose species was originally seen as a "tigress" by commenting viewers and fans. But she is on the first of her nine lives. Her full name is based off the words tora, which means "tiger" in Japanese, and "stripe", meaning "Tiger Stripe", as in translating. She is an orange werecat who was introduced in the webisode "Scream Building," along with two werecat twins, Meowlody and Purrsephone. Toralei, who hates to be rubbed the wrong way, is extremely catty and justifies her attitude by stating that it is her desire to see cause-and-effect. She was a fearleader until she and the rest of the fearleaders, except Frankie, grew tired of Cleo's perfectionism and quit. She later tries to rejoin, but is rejected. Cleo's most recent diary reveals that Toralei, Purrsephone, and Meowlody are on the squad because of the influence of her older sister, Nefera, who apparently keeps in touch with the trio after having graduated. Toralei's diary reveals why she harbors ill will towards Cleo; Toralei had helped Cleo practice her gymnastics skills to help her make the fearleading squad, which Cleo never thanked her for. To add insult to injury, Nefera named Cleo the new captain of the fearleading team over Toralei, who was expecting to be chosen. Despite her extreme dislike of Cleo, Toralei refuses to resort to using dirty tricks to ensure that her squad beats Cleo's in competition. Toralei's doll has a tail, unlike her depiction in the webisodes and CGI animation (Either that or it is just hidden under her clothes on purpose). Her pet is a baby saber-toothed tiger cub named Sweet Fang.
Meowlody and Purrsephone
Meowlody and Purrsephone (both voiced by America Young) are twin werecats who met Toralei at the pound. Both have dark gray fur; the hair on Persephone's head is predominantly black, and the hair on Meowlody's head is predominantly white. Though they do not dress exactly alike, their clothes are stylistically similar. They used to have a pet canary, but one of them turned out to be allergic and had to give the bird away. The twins are annoyed by the assumption that, because they are twins, they think alike. Meowlody name is apparently based off the words "Meow" and "Melody", as Purrsephone's name being based off the word "Purr" and the original name Persephone, the Greek goddess. The wrecats are best friends with Toralei Stripe. Purrsephone and Meowlody's birthday is on the 31st of December.
Operetta (voiced by Cindy Robinson) is the sixteen-in-phantom-years-old daughter of Phantom of the Opera. She was born in France, but raised in Gnarlestone, South Carolina where her father haunted a riverboat. Because of this, she speaks with a tight southern drawl. Her family moved to Monster High as part of a job to fix an old opera theater that is within the school's catacombs. Her diary is unique in that it is written as a letter to her guitar teacher and friend, Fynn. Operetta has red hair, wears 1950's rockabilly-styled clothing (saddle shoes!), and a music note mask over her right-hand eye. She is a talented musician like her father, but her voice is only safe to listen to on a recording. She has a recording studio underneath the catacombs. Operetta was first mentioned in Holt's diary where the two go on a date. Operetta is mentioned again when Spectra spreads a rumor that Deuce is cheating on Cleo with Operetta; in reality, Operetta was merely assisting Deuce with writing a song for Cleo. Operetta makes her first webisode appearance in "Hiss-teria."
Her pet is a spider named Memphis "Daddy-O" Longlegs, but he is not as long or as skinny as an opiliones, or a pholcidae, which is an actual spider. He is also a bit quite bigger than a small daddy longlegs or a opiliones, and so are his legs and feet (Feet easier to see in dolls and artwork; as he appears with a suit and shoes in the webisodes, but not in any CGI specials).
Howleen Wolf (voiced by America Young in most appearances, Lara Jill Miller in some webisodes) is a werewolf who is Clawd, Clawdia and Clawdeen's younger sister at the age of 14. Clawdeen and Howleen are rivals and ghoul friends forever. She is the third daughter of The Werewolf to Clawdeen. Howleen considers her sense of style as "werepunk", but Clawdeen characterizes Howleen's style as like "she got dressed 'in the dark'". She shares a room with Clawdeen and is stealing everything and constantly borrowing Clawdeen's clothes without asking. Howleen is also interested in playing a guitar as shown by Operetta. Howleen displays puppy behavior such as chewing on Clawdeen's shoes and even wipes her nose on her sister's jackets. Howleen becomes friends with Abbey after Abbey comes to her defense when she is being bullied by Manny (she scared him away by tying a horseshoe in a knot).
Sloman "Slo-Moe" Mortovitch
Sloman "Slo-Moe" Mortovitch (voiced by Audu Paden) is a zombie who was originally addressed as Moe "Slow Moe" Deadovitch instead though. He is Ghoulia's official boyfriend. He is now the leader of the zombies as he is the student disembodied president. But the president thing works a little differently in 13 Wishes.
Rochelle Goyle (voiced by Erin Fitzgerald in a French accent) is the daughter of a Gargoyle couple and is 415 years old. Rochelle is from Scaris, France and a new transfer student at Monster High. Being from Scaris, she speaks with a French accent. Her style is a mixture of iron rot and stain glass. Rochelle is very protective of her friends, but this can tend to get in the way of friends who don't desire her protection. Purrsephone and Meowlody once encountered a French gargoyle who ruined a prank they were trying to play on Ghoulia. Rochelle has an unrequited crush on Deuce Gorgon and he can look at her without his sunglasses on as gorgons' and basilisks' stares do not affect gargoyles. Rochelle knows about Deuce's girlfriend, Cleo, but still has a crush on him. In the movie she is shown to have had a love interest in Scaris that was left behind but goes back to find him. Rochelle loves to sculpt and is fond of architecture. Her pet is a gargoyle griffin named Roux. She was revealed at the NYC Toy Fair and released in May.
Robecca Steam (voiced by Julie Maddalena in an English accent) is a robot who is the one-hundred-and-sixteen years old and daughter of the robot Hexachiah Steam. her heart is the vampires heart that was taken by Elissabat and given to her father [Hexachiah] to hide so that no one would know that Elissabat was the queen, for fear she would be controlled by her uncle. but Robecca's heart led her to Elissabat where Draculara talked her into being the queen because it was her right. her skin is copper, she is the famous roller-maze champion. she tends to follow her instincts, and is very sweet. She can do a lot of tricks and perform monstrous stunts.
In "Frights, Camera, Action," it was revealed that Hexachiah Steam met Elissabat who had him hide the Vampire Heart in Robecca's chest compartment.
Venus McFlytrap (voiced by Julie Maddalena) is the 15 year old daughter of two plant monsters. She likes to wear loud and flashy clothing to attract monsters's attention for her world cause, and see she's also a plant monster. She is a strong-advocate for environmental issues sometimes she will blow pollen that persuades monsters to her cause. Her pet is a Venus Flytrap named Chewlian.
Scarah Screams (voiced by Erin Fitzgerald) is a banshee. Her name originally comes from a combination pun of the word scare, and the English/British name: "Sarah". Prior to having her name revealed, she was referred to as "sixties chick". In "Undoo the Voodoo" she has her first speaking role, and appears to be Irish. Scarah has her second speaking role in "I Scream, You Scream" where she helps Cleo and in this episode she is shown to be telepathic. A banshee is an Irish spirit that is known for her haunting songs. Being part of an Irish lore, Scarah states she is from Ireland and henceforth speaks with a light Irish accent. Scarah has white eyes with no irises or pupils, green skin, and jet black hair styled in a bouffant flip. In Howleen's diary, she mentions a banshee friend who cannot keep a secret, obviously referring to Scarah. She was one of three characters (the other two being the Headless Headmistress and the Daughter of Arachne) in the running to be the next new Monster High character to debut as a doll. Mattel conducted a ballot poll at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con International, their official Facebook page, and the official Monster High website to determine which character would receive the honor. On August 11, 2011, the official Monster High Facebook page announced that Scarah received the most votes in the poll. The Scarah Screams prototype doll was unveiled at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con International, and the official doll was released at San Diego Comic-Con 2012. Her first doll available to stores was released exclusively to Toys "R" Us, as part of the "I Heart Fashion" line.
Gory Fangtell (voiced by Cindy Robinson) is a vampire girl, she speaks with a sort of southern accent and has a little mole on the right-hand-side of her cheek under her eye, shown in-between her glasses. She is pretty mean, she tends to pick on Draculaura and according to Fright On! (which is pun on "right on") was originally the type of monster to not be able to like anyone who's not a vampire. By the end of the TV special, she has changed completely and has lent a helping hand in the talk of the cause for goodness in Hisstoria. She appears in the background of Ghouls Rule, Friday Fright Nights, and "13 Wishes". She originally came from Belfry Prep School. In Monster High: 13 Wishes, Gory was seen in the ghouls' room bullying Howleen Wolf where she quotes: "You don't belong in this ghouls room, you don't belong anywhere." After Howleen Wolf made a wish to become popular, Gory began to hang out with her. Gory is friends with unnamed girls and Toralei Stripe. In Frights, Camera, Action, it is revealed that Gory gained her vampire powers by saving a vampire lord.
Jinafire Long (voiced by Stephanie Sheh) is the daughter of two Chinese Dragons. Like most dragons, she has the ability to breathe fire and has golden scales. She also has seven brothers with no female siblings. She also was shown in the movie "Scaris: City of Fright" as she, Skeltia, and Clawdeen were in a contest. She has a bad temper which can make her burst things into flames. But ever since she melted her iCoffin, she's tried to be better about it.
Bram Devien (voiced by Yuri Lowenthal in earlier appearances, Evan Smith in later appearances) is a vampire who is the male head-leader (or "King") of the whole Belfry Academy "vampire pack" along with his female head-leader ("Queen"), Gory Fangtell, and he's bleached blond with darker brows. Bram is a pale-skinned, red-eyed vampire-boy with blue rings around his eyes, which may be shadow. He has a 'nasty attitude', same as his girlfriend, and Bram hated werewolves at the beginning of "Fright On!".
InvisiBilly (voiced by Evan Smith) is the son of The Invisible Man. And his name is a pun off of the word invisibility, InvisiBilly is a complete prankster, but is kind and gentle, according to "Fright Dance", with Rochelle. InvisiBilly does a lot of pranks, like tying people's shoe laces together and other things. His girlfriend is Scarah Screams, as they got together in the webisode Scarah-Voyant thanks to Frankie and so.
Catrine DeMew (voiced by Kate Higgins in "Scaris: City of Frights", Karen Strassman in Volume 4) is a white werecat with purple shoulder-length hair who is also an artist from Scaris. The ghouls meet her while exploring the attractions of Scaris in the special "Scaris: City of Frights". She makes several other cameos in said special. She has officially now joined Monster High according to the new "New Scaremester" line of doll-assortment clothing.
Twyla (voiced by Jonquil Goode) is the daughter of the Boogey Man, and has glowing eyes, whose name is maybe punned on the phrase twilight as being a "creature of the dark". She has aqua-turquoise hair with bright-purple streaks and eyes that match her streaks, and cyan-green eyebrows sort of going with her hair. Twyla wears light-pink lipstick, lighter than Toralei's basic lipstick; and has long lashes, while her motif sports that of loose and comfortable clothing with spooky style. Her beast friend is Howleen Wolf.
Wydowna Spider is a humanoid spider who gets involved in various creative projects. She uses her six arms to multitask on several things at once which has a habit of burning her out. Her name is a spoof of Winona Ryder.
Gigi Grant (voiced by Jonquil Goode) is the daughter of a genie and is the Genie of the Lantern in 13 Wishes. She likes to wear comfortable clothing, but not look messy on her first meetings with each "finder". Gigi lives in a good (high and bigger on the inside than outside) lamp (or lantern) which is bounded by strict rules. Her origins place her at "Ever After High" some time before Howleen found her in "Monster High: 13 Wishes."
Whisp (voiced by Jonquil Goode) is not an offspring of anyone or anything, but literally Gigi Grant's shadow. She is a shadow being created by Giles Grimm's whispering want for a finder to wish Gigi Grant a friend. They are said to be like sisters, and Whisp looks like her in shadowy form and has became more real with appearance with each spell-bind wish and will be real when the moon covers the sun, an eclipse. Whisp's appearance is the opposite-side-directions of colors, with the different hair, being blue with pink streaks; the vice-versa of Gigi's hair, only without gold probably because the franchise people didn't think it would look as good. Whisp later says goodbye and went back in the lantern. It was flying off until Clawd Wolf, Manny Taur, and Heath Burns fell from the sky and knocked the lantern into the deep and that is down forever. Frankie Stein remarked that at Monster High, the deep end goes down forever and that it would be found someday.
Jane Boolittle is an unspecified monster girl from an unspecified jungle. She is the adoptive daughter of the mad scientist Doctor Boolittle who found her in the sole company of her pet sloth Needles during an expedition with Dr. Moreau.

"Honey Swamp" (voiced By Laura Bailey) is the daughter of a Swamp Monster. She is blue, with an Afro-like hair, and like Operetta, speaks with a Southern accent. She makes her very first cartoon debut in the TV special. Honey is shown to have the ability to enlist alligators to come to her aide. At the end of the special, she joins up with Elissabat.
Viperine Gorgon (voiced by Yeni Alvarez) is a gorgon whose mother is Deuce's aunt since she is sister of Medusa. Viperine lives in Baregolona, Spain. Viperine has viper-snakes for hair, and has long flowing pink hair, and speaks with an Spanish accent. She wears pink, hair-matching see-through shades for sunglasses. She is the makeup artist for famous "boovie star" Veronica Von Vamp (a.k.a Elissabat). At the end of the special, she joins up with Elissabat.

Monster High graduates
The following have previously gone to Monster High prior to the events of the franchise and have graduated:
Nefera de Nile
Nefera de Nile (voiced by Wendee Lee) is a mummy and the eldest and older daughter of Ramses de Nile. She is Cleo's older sister by three years and at age 5,845. She is coldhearted, self-centered, and contemptuous towards most other monsters. The otherwise naughty Cleo admits to feeling insecure around her. She enjoys making life miserable for Cleo and takes pleasure in humiliating her younger sister at every turn. Nefera is first mentioned in Clawd's diary and her first webisode mention is in "Miss Infearmation". Her first webisode appearance is in "Hyde and Shriek". Nefera was the fearleading squad captain until she graduated from Monster High, but in spite of this, Nefera continues to manipulate the squad's activities, solely to make life difficult for Cleo. She had Toralei, Purrsephone, and Meowlody reinstated to the squad after they quit, and demands that Cleo keep them on. For some time after graduation, Nefera worked as a model, which only served to further heighten Cleo's feelings of inferiority towards her. Nefera's diary reveals that she actually suffers from an inferiority complex so severe that if she feels that someone is insulting her in the slightest, she breaks down and suffers a blackout. Her pet is a Scarab beetle named Azura. Despite her nasty nature, Nefera has had her moments of kindness, some of them being in the webisode "Kind: The Shockumentary", where Cleo tells Nefera she is a great older sister. Nefera smiles sincerely and kindly lets the Kind Campaign leaders though the doors.
Elissabat (voiced by Karen Strassman) is a vampire who is the daughter of a Vampire. She is also the cousin of Draculaura. She was supposed to become the next Vampire Queen, but found out that the vampire who chose her, Lord Stoker, was planning to run the kingdom through her. So, with the help of Robecca's father Hexiciah, she escapes to Hauntlywood (Not without going to Londoom and New Gorleans first!) and becomes her alter-ego as "Veronica von Vamp", a now famous actress. Then is revealed by Draculaura and becomes queen after forcefully retiring Lord Stoker from his position. At the coronation/movie debut, she helped to unlock Draculaura's vampire powers.
Clawdia Wolf (voiced by Jonquil Goode) is the eldest (eldest named) among her siblings Clawd Wolf, Clawdeen Wolf, and Howleen Wolf. She formerly attends Monster High. She is an aspiring screamwriter studying in Londoom. Her family is very important to her, and she misses them while she is away at school. Unlike many of her Wolf siblings, she does not have any athletic ability and is actually quite clumsy. At the end of the special, she joins up with Elissabat.
Monster High Staff
The following are staff members of Monster High:
Headless Headmistress Bloodgood
Headless Headmistress Bloodgood (voiced by Laura Bailey) is in charge of the students at Monster High where she also teaches Trigular Calcometry 101. According to her newly freshed bio, she is officially the daughter of the Headless Horseman, not just based on him. Like her name implies, she can take off her head whenever it pleases her. She rides her horse Nightmare throughout the school halls and uses horse analogies when she feels it is appropriate. Bloodgood is a good friend of Abbey Bominable's parents and lets Abbey stay at her home during the school week. A Headless Headmistress Bloodgood doll prototype was revealed at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con as part of a poll to select the next doll. The doll's traits included a detachable head and a taller body, compared to the female students. The Bloodgood doll did not win the poll, but was revealed at the 2012 Comic-Con as a spring 2013 release as an exclusive to Toys R Us in May.
Mr. Hackington "Hack"
Mr. Hackington (voiced by Audu Paden) is the teacher in the webseries and is based on Leatherface. His last name usually most commonly shortened to Hack as a nickname. He speaks with a British accent. Mr. Hack is the Mad Science Teacher. He enjoys seeing a look of disappointment on his students' faces whenever an opportunity can present itself. Lagoona's Mad Science Survival Guide mentions he also tends to spend most of the class talking about stories of his time with other Mad Scientists and these always end up on his end of the week tests.
Mr. Lou Zarr
Lou Zarr (voiced by Troy Baker) was the substitute teacher in "Substitute Creature" and appears in the television special "New Ghoul @ School." He is a strict normie teacher who refuses to take any nonsense from his students, and when the class cannot remember where in the textbook they left off during the previous lecture, he decides to begin his lesson from the beginning of the book. Mr. Zarr's full name is a source of mirth for the students because it sounds very much like "loser," which is what they perceive him to be. He is turned to stone when he demands that Deuce Gorgon take off his sunglasses and Deuce complies. Of course Deuce stays behind to tell Lou Zarr the effects of his stare once it wears off.
Lou Zarr later hosts Trigular Calcometry 101, Frankie Stein's very first class. It makes her worry she won't survive school. In fact, Zarr's lesson is so boring he makes himself fall asleep mid-calculation. When a little later the school bell rings, the students leave swiftly, except for Ghoulia Yelps. She stays to finish Mr. Zarr's calculations with Zarr only waking up in confusion after she has completed the task.
Mr. Rotter (voiced by Yuri Lowenthal in Volume 1 and 2, Cam Clarke in Volume 3) is a zombie and the school's dead-languages teacher, and possibly sometimes homeroom. He can be quite picky with good grades, less than Hack's, but still kind of strict. He is voiced by Cam Clarke now, and possibly for Volume 4, too.
Mr. Where (voiced by Yuri Lowenthal) is believed by fans to be InvisiBilly's father, the Invisible Man who can also make his bandages become invisible. He is the drama teacher at the school where he teaches Dramarama, but also seems to be in charge of the debate team in the webseries.
Ms. Kindergrübber is a witch who is the Home Ick teacher. Frankie Stein's Survival Guide to Home Ick states that she likes the students to copy her recipes exactly the same way she does. The one exception is Deuce Gorgon who is the only student whose cooking she will eat without question. Because she does not like to check oven temperatures, Ms. Kindergrübber is quite possibly based on the witch from Hansel and Gretel.
The unnamed Music Teacher is an unspecified creature who speaks in a German accent. He is one of Monster High's music teachers.
As Monster High is about teenagers, obviously it has to reserve a spot for celebrities to idolize. To fill that spot, a number of monster celebrity occasionally show up.
Catty Noir (voiced by Missi Hale) is a daughter of two werecats, and is very superstitious from being a black cat. So she wears a dress out of broken glass mirror shards and thirteen-styled jewelry, for keeping ones around her out of bad luck. She has almost-grey almost-obician-black, almost-ebony fur, but is still pretty dark; pink hair in a long, but still high ponytail, eyes to match her hair with slit, black pupils; and pink makeup. She says her favorite color is magenta. Her singing songs are "We Are Monster High" (Missi Hale version) and Monster High version of "Magic Carpet Ride". In "Just One of the Ghouls", she has a new song called "Normal Ghoul".
There were Football Stars in the Monster High franchise. The Facebook entry of July 18, 2012 was a message from from Clawd Wolf who was stoked to be at the Football Hall of Fame and meet some of his heroes consisting of Scary Madsaw, Grim Brown and Howlie Long. Scary Madsaw is a parody of Terry Bradshaw, Grim Brown is a parody of Jim Brown, and Howlie Long is a parody of Howie Long.

Book Exclusive Characters
Melody Carver is the co-protagonist of the Monster High novels. She and her family are from Beverly Hills and moved to Salem, Oregon to help with Melody's asthma. Melody has just recovered from rhinoplasty that was meant to help her with her breathing, but is implied to have been mostly to please her parents' family image. Melody's family is neighbors with Jackson Jekyll, whom Melody eventually dates. Melody is the one who reveals the truth behind Jackson's blackouts through a recording on her iPhone. Unfortunately, she forgets to delete it and it gets in the hands of Bekka Madden, a RAD hater and primary antagonist of the series. This video leads to the RADs community becoming exposed, Melody forming the NUDIs (Normies Uncool with Discriminating Idiots), and a documentary on their secret lives. At the end of the second novel, Melody learns from Manu, Cleo's father's aide, that she might be the daughter of Marina, a siren. This is confirmed at the end of the third novel. Melody develops the ability to persuade people to do whatever she asks with her voice. She also grows olive and blue feathers with gold tips. This inspires her to make a dress and jewelry out of them.
Billy Phaidin is the son of the Invisible Man. Billy is the RAD who made Salem aware of the monster community after a 60 year hiatus of a RAD sighting. It is implied that his invisibility developed later in his life, similar to Heath's fire breathing. Billy, much like his predecessor, can only be seen if he wears clothing and make-up. Billy dresses up as Frankie to appease Bekka's demands to get Jackson's transformation video back. It fools Bekka, but fails to solve the problem thanks to Brett's poor timing. In "Where There's a Wolf, There's a Way," Candace helps Billy become visible with a spray-tan. Billy has a one-sided crush on Frankie.
Brett Redding is a normie who attends Merston High. At the beginning of the series, he is dating Bekka Madden. In the first novel, he is hunting monsters after the sighting of a "green alien," who turns out to be Frankie. It is revealed later that he is fascinated by monsters. Brett kisses Frankie at the Monster Mash and accidentally detaches her head, sending shockwaves throughout his body. He ends up in a coma until the beginning of the second novel. When Brett wakes up, during live TV, he breaks up with Bekka and wants to find the mystery girl from the dance. Brett joins the NUDIs with Melody, and the two decide to make a documentary to show normies that RADs are just regular people as well. Brett is also dating Frankie and friends with Heath before anyone knew he was a RAD.
Bekka Madden is the primary antagonist of the Monster High novels. She befriends Melody at first due to a common dislike of Cleo de Nile. Bekka wants Brett all to herself, even forcing Melody to sign a contract that she won't make any moves on Brett. Bekka discovers the video of Jackson transforming into DJ Hyde and uses this as blackmail for Melody to get Frankie, the girl who kissed Brett and put him in a coma. Within the allotted time frame, Melody brings a disguised Billy to Brett's hospital room. Bekka is fooled and pleased with the turning in of the RAD, but exposes the video on live TV anyway when Brett breaks up with her. Bekka ends up sabotaging the NUDIs documentary by turning it into fear propaganda rather than a film to help the RADs break out into society. Afterward in the third novel she organizes anti-RAD protests and does "haunted" tours of the houses that the RADS used to live in. At the beginning of book 4 it is shown that Becca had transferred to a new school, after which; little is said about her.
Candace Carver is Melody's older sister. On the surface, she appears to be nothing more than a party girl and the stereotypical Beverly Hills teenager. However, Melody, in the second book remarks that Candace "defied the dumb-blond stereotype. There was no air in that head. The spinning wheels in her brain blew it all out her ears." Candace is very supportive of Melody and is happy to help her sister when she can. She, in fact, was the one to name NUDI and is a proud member, serving as the group's unofficial chauffeur without complaint. Candace was unaware that Melody is adopted until "Where There's a Wolf, There's a Way."
Sydney Jekyll is Jackson Jekyll's mother from the novels and currently is unmentioned in the other media. She had never told Jackson about DJ until Melody Carver reveals the truth to him via her iPhone. Sydney used to teach at Merston High until the RADs were outed in the community and she was fired from her job. She moved to another town and kept DJ as the main personality to protect Jackson. While away, Sydney rents her house to Marina, not knowing she is Melody's birth mother. At the end of the third novel, she is back in Salem, Oregon. In the fourth book, her name is revealed.
