If the team needs something to use urgently, Newton will help the team by developing gadgets with his useful tools. As the youngest child in Pinkerton,(except little Fred) he is a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to studies and aims to get a 100% average.

In the episode Lovestruck Stinkbomb, he wishes to be in love with Trixie and shares a kiss with her, which disgusts him and makes him change his mind. He describes himself as the inventor.
Miss Sadie Macbeth
Voiced by Sharon Mann. Miss Sadie Macbeth is the antagonist of the series. She frequently devises mischievous plans to make her students quiet and obedient.

All pupils outside the I.N.K. are unaware of her malevolence. She describes herself as the evil villain. Interestingly enough, she also holds the functions of a "mascot" for the show, insofar as she is the one making most of the musical parts (in every episode she is singing a song about her evil scheme) and stars as a more crudely drawn cartoon character in the Science Club sequences at the end of every episode. While being a villain, her goofyness and the randomness of her actions make her the comic relief of the show as well. Miss Macbeth, although quite stupid, invents many clever weapons she uses against the kids of Pinkerton. The Invisible Network of Kids has managed to destroy all of them. In Investigation at Pinkerton, it was revealed that Macbeth was a famous children's singer named Valentine Begonia 30 years ago.

Voiced by Matthew Geczy. He is the principal of the Pinkerton School and has no idea about I.N.K. or the evil schemes of Miss Macbeth. He is very popular with the pupils at the school.

It is hinted in The Truth, The Whole Truth that he might know who Vin's parents are but he dosent want to tell him.
