Tori Vega (Victoria Justice) is the younger sister of Trina Vega, which makes her the youngest daughter of the Vega family and attends Hollywood Arts, a performing arts high school, along with her sister.
When Trina comes down with an allergic reaction to a Chinese herb before a big showcase at school, Tori is volunteered by Andre to take her place since she knew the piece meant to be played. Tori performs "Make it Shine" the theme song of the show and everyone is impressed with her performance, including the principal who offers her enrollment to the school. She accepts and is admitted to Hollywood Arts. Though initially feeling out of place at Hollywood Arts, Tori makes new, supportive friends and gets more comfortable. From there onward, the show details Tori's journey as she gets into wacky situations, and has differences and adventures with her friends, as she finds herself along the way. She is one of the favorite students of Sikowitz.
She is depicted as creative, nice, caring, forgiving, responsible, positive, easy-going, and friendly, though she can be sneaky and vindictive, going as low as to manipulate her friends and family (especially Trina), but will always do the right thing in the end. Tori is shown to care for her friends and family a lot and is willing to help them no matter what, even when she is hesitant to.
In "The Breakfast Bunch," it is revealed that Tori can do archery with her feet.
Tori is friends with Beck, Cat, Robbie and is the closest to Andre. She often considers Jade as her friend, even though Jade herself doesn't. In some episodes, the two seem be friends although most of the time Jade seems to be a "frenemy" towards Tori.
For reasons unknown in later episodes, Tori is shown to wear glasses when at home.
Andre Harris (Leon Thomas III) is Tori's best friend. Andre is an aspiring musician who loves to perform and write his own songs. He can play many instruments, including the guitar, keyboard, piano, and the French horn, but prefers the keyboard and piano. Andre takes his music seriously and is usually seen playing at all of Tori's performances. He is an amazing singer and songwriter, having co-written nearly every song Tori has sung. He also often gets Tori to sing back-up for him at his own performances.
Andre is shown to be witty and kind and Tori often relies on him for support in her time of need, and he is always there for her, although he is easily distracted at times. He is the guy Tori and the others come to for help or advice on anything. He also likes to make jokes, but none of the other characters find him humorous. He does not like nuts.
We are not told much about Andre's personal life, but we do know that he has an extremely crazy grandmother, an uncle who is a real estate agent that once sold a house to Kenan Thompson, and a cousin who acts.
In "Jade Gets Crushed", Andre develops feelings for Jade after they work together on a song for a project and Andre hears her sing. At the end of episode, he tells Tori that it seems that he is over Jade, but his former crush on Jade is mentioned again in "Tori Fixes Beck and Jade" .
Robert "Robbie" Shapiro (Matt Bennett) is one of Tori's friends at Hollywood Arts. He speaks along with a puppet, Rex Powers, whom he and all others speak to as if it were an actual person. Robbie is a skilled ventriloquist, but he was un-credited for his talent until "Freak The Freak Out", but he is shown to be confused about it, not understanding why he was referred to as a "ventriloquist", which either jokingly indicates that Rex has a mind of his own and is not controlled by Robbie at all or in a more serious matter that Robbie suffers a schizophrenic disorder, therefore considering Rex a real Person. He is said to have Rex since he was little and can almost always be seen with Rex. Robbie personifies Rex, which leads to many an argument about Rex's true sentience. He constantly argues that Rex isn't a puppet or dummy when told otherwise. Robbie is closest to Rex, though Rex ridicules him often, and is shown to be affectionate towards him.
Robbie is considered extremely nerdy, shy, and socially awkward, but a good, loyal, and honest friend to others. Robbie has a great deal of trouble with girls, relationships, or how to attract girls. It is often hinted at that Robbie may be in love with Cat, and is proven true in the episode "The Blonde Squad" where Robbie is shown to have written the song "I Think You're Swell" for her that he sings to her at the end of the episode. It is about what a great person she is, and how they get along so well, and that she is all he thinks about. She however, does not appear to get the true feelings behind it, though she does appear to greatly enjoy the song. He is also shown to be the only one who knows Cat's full name, Caterina. He does not seem to have a sense of privacy. His only relative who has ever been seen is his grandmother. It is revealed that Robbie is intolerant to gluten, otherwise known as Celiac Disease, and also that he is a Vegan, although this was a reference to the word virgin, as used in "The Breakfast Bunch". It is revealed in "Wok Star" Robbie is Jewish because he spent his Bar Mitzvah money on leather pants and male make-up. He is also mistaken for a girl in a couple episodes like in "Locked Up" he is put on the wrong side of the fence in jail splitting the girls side from the boys side. In the "Blond Squad" Cat is upset and Robbie says, "Any guy would be as lucky as cheese to go out with you". Cat replies by saying "Thanks Robbie, but you don't know how guys think".
Robbie Shapiro appeared in the Sam & Cat episode "TheKillerTunaJump" where he is called in by Jade to flirt with Sam Puckett after Cat had called Freddie Benson to Burbank to flirt with her. When Sam kisses him, Cat is greatly angered and upset by it.
Rex Powers (physically portrayed by a ventriloquist dummy named Christopher Cane, puppeteered by Matt Bennett) is Robbie's alter ego, who is a dummy that Robbie carries around everywhere. Robbie has had Rex since he was young. Since Robbie is too shy to speak for himself most of the time, he talks as Rex, using him to voice his actual feelings and thoughts. The others treat Rex as a real person, and both Robbie and Rex dislike it when Rex is called a "dummy" or "puppet". Rex is obsessed with "Northridge Girls", dumb, talentless and 'easy' girls from a Los Angeles neighborhood.
In "Rex Dies" he gets sucked into a wind machine and is taken to the hospital (even though he is a dummy). Rex is shown to have a huge crush on Tori and constantly hits on her, though she is annoyed by his affection. Robbie often turns to Rex for advice and insight, though Rex's advice is almost always off-beat. Rex is sarcastic and mean, especially to Robbie, though it is shown that neither can stay without the other.
In the first 3 seasons, Rex is always in Robbie's company. In season 4 for unexplained reasons, Robbie is frequently seen without Rex.
Jade West (Elizabeth Gillies) is a frenemy of Tori from Hollywood Arts. She is gothically-clothed – always wearing dark clothes with eyebrow piercings and different colors of streaks in her hair – and is the long time girlfriend of Beck Oliver. She is very protective of her boyfriend and is known to lash out at anyone who she views as a threat to their relationship. She shows very little affection for her friends, but really does care for them, including Tori, who has topped her in various ways in the past.
In the pilot episode, it was because of Jade that Tori nearly gave up attending Hollywood Arts, having poured coffee over head in front the class and humiliating her when mistakenly believing that she was flirting with Beck, until Trina and Andre convinced her to keep attending. The following day, Tori managed to beat Jade in Sikowitz' alphabet acting challenge, standing up to her, and kissing Beck to get back at her.
Jade has been known to take obsession in triumphing over any enemies or rivals she may find, and occasionally has been known to take an interest in bizarre, dark, or unusual things that usually would repulse or frighten other people. She has a "thing" for scissors, as you can see her holding scissors in many episodes and her locker is decorated with them, and was told on "The Slap"—the Hollywood Arts website.
In "Ice Cream for Ke$ha", it is revealed that her childhood was a dark and unhappy one, her favorite play toy being a hammer, and that she had been raised by an unsupportive and similarly emotionless father and a mother she couldn't emotionally connect with. She is also seen to be an amazing singer and actress, which are her main talents that got her into Hollywood Arts. She and Beck are told to have had a long term relationship with it being mentioned in "Jade Dumps Beck" that they had been dating for two years. However, they break up in the episode "The Worst Couple" after non-stop fighting, although it becomes clear that Jade still has feelings for him. After taking some time apart, the two make amends in the episode "Tori Fixes Beck and Jade" when Jade sings a song that is implied to be dedicated to Beck, leading them to admit that they have missed each other and get back together.
Jade later appeared in the Sam & Cat episode "#TheKillerTunaJump" where she ends up meeting Sam Puckett and befriending her whereas Cat had thought that the two girls would kill each other upon first sight due to their similar personalities. It was Sam and Jade's friendship that got Cat jealous enough to call Freddie Benson to Burbank so that she can flirt with him.
Caterina "Cat" Valentine (Ariana Grande) is one of Tori's strangest friends from Hollywood Arts. She is fun, energetic, and sometimes oblivious. As seen in some episodes, she is revealed to be somewhat smart, just a little air headed. In a video on TheSlap she reveals that her full name is Caterina but only her grandmother calls her by her full name. It was also revealed by Robbie in "The Blonde Squad" when he yelled "Caterina Valentine, I will not sit here anymore and listen to you talk bad about yourself! You're adorable!" She is relatively friendly and liked by all of the students. She is sweet, naive, bubbly and happy, often unsuspecting of what is really going on around her. She has a playful nature, and has a very short attention span so she can easily be distracted with colorful items by the others when they want her out of the way. She can be somewhat of a drama queen, and doesn't take criticism very well. She often screams "What's that supposed to mean!?" when offended, which is very often and has become her catchphrase. Cat often says random and strange things which leaves the others, especially Jade, confused or annoyed.
Cat is also an extremely talented singer and actress, as seen in "Freak The Freak Out" where she sings a duet with Jade, and in the crossover episode "iParty with Victorious" where she shows a high vocal range. A running gag of the series is Cat often telling her friends or strangers about her brother, who seems to have many unnatural problems, all of which Cat doesn't seem to find strange or abnormal. She has bright red hair that she dyed to resemble her favorite snack called a red velvet cupcake. Andre has a nickname for her "Little Red", which she took offense to at first, but then called it "creative". It is revealed in the "The Breakfast Bunch" that she is a vegan. Through the series, she has become more ditzy and over the top, with a higher-pitched voice and her abnormal conversations.
In 2011, she crossed over to iCarly in the episode "iParty with Victorious" where she had to use a special headband and pear phone app to speak when she has a throat problem. By the end of the episode, she spoke where she mentioned that her doctor didn't say that she can't do karaoke.
In January 2013 in the episode "Star-Spangled Tori," Cat's parents move away to Idaho be with her mentally ill brother where Cat was told to live with her Aunt Pearl and Uncle Walter. According to Cat, they are very strict and mean. They don't like Cat's red hair, they only eat vegetables, they don't allow Cat to have unlimited texting, and they don't allow her to flush the toilet unless it is "absolutely necessary." This caused Cat to run away and take refuge in the attic of Hollywood Arts where her living habits were discovered by Robbie and Jade. After Jade called up Cat's parents, Cat goes to live with her grandmother (who she calls "Nona") who turned out to be living in Venice, California and not Venice, Italy as Cat had initially thought.
When Victorious airs its final season, Cat becomes a co-lead character on the crossover spin-off Sam & Cat a sitcom that began airing in 2013. Sam and Cat become roommates when Cat's Nona (played by Maree Cheatham) goes to live in Elderly Acres. Technically, Sam and Cat unofficially met each other in 2011 in the iCarly episode "iParty with Victorious", but neither of them made much contact. Sam and Cat later set up a babysitting service to raise some extra cash. Sam and Cat's home is stated to be 'the poshest apartment in the building'. In later episodes of the series, Ariana Grande wore a red-haired wig when playing Cat Valentine instead of dying it, which she had done in the past.
Beck Oliver (Avan Jogia) is Jade's boyfriend. He has been together with Jade for over two years and, unlike everyone else, is completely unafraid of her (even laughing when Andre admitted to being scared of her) and often likes to tease and make her jealous because of her reactions, which he finds amusing. Beck seems to be the only one who can calm Jade down when she becomes angry and has some control over her as seen throughout the series.
Beck is seen as soft-spoken, friendly, laid back and open. Although he is shown to get annoyed and even lose his temper, usually by Robbie or Trina, he is normally calm and collected. Because of his good looks and personality, he is possibly the most popular guy at Hollywood Arts and attracts almost all females and girls, sometimes even older women. He seems to be aware of the effect he has on girls, sometimes using his looks to his advantage. He and Andre are shown to be close friends. His school locker is transparent, which is his way of saying that he has no secrets, which is revealed to Tori when she was attempting to find a decorative idea for her own locker. He lives in a trailer that is parked in his parents' driveway, being told if he lived with them then he would have to go by their rules, and he stated "my roof, my rules". In the season 2 premiere, Jade mentions that Beck is Canadian.
It is shown in "Beck Falls For Tori" and "iParty with Victorious" that Beck has never felt true terror nor has he ever been scared by anything, a fact backed up by Jade who calls him "unscareable". He usually tries to keep peace in the group and hold everyone together. Beck breaks up with Jade in season 3 episode, "The Worst Couple" after getting tired of constantly fighting with her. In the episode "Tori Goes Platinum" Beck tries to kiss Tori, revealing that he has some feelings for her, but she rejects him because she viewed it as a betrayal to Jade to kiss her ex-boyfriend. In the episode, Tori Fixes Beck and Jade, Beck tries dating a girl named Meredith, who wants to do anything he wants, causing him to realize how he prefers dating a girl who "fights back" and "has a big mouth" because it isn't easy and that an easy relationship to him is "boring". This causes him to see how much he misses being with Jade and that he loves her, bringing the two back together again. Following this, their relationship is stronger and more stable.
It is later mentioned in Sam & Cat, that the two are still in a relationship.
Trina Vega (Daniella Monet) is Tori's older sister, who also attends Hollywood Arts. It is assumed that Trina is half Latina, like Tori. Trina's allergic reaction to a Chinese herb gargle in the pilot episode forces Tori to fill in for her in the school's big showcase, which leads to Tori being offered admission to Hollywood Arts.
Trina believes that acting and singing is her destiny, and is oblivious to her actual lack of any talent (however, some consider her performance in the song "Shut Up N' Dance" quite good, though it does appear in the April-Fools episode, which largely disregards series continuity). In fact, the only reason Trina is even in Hollywood Arts in the first place is that Mr. Sikowitz had a coconut-induced hallucination during Trina's audition, which turned her performance into a psychedelic extravaganza, and every other judge was out at the time. Trina is quite selfish and shallow most of the time, and is portrayed as being extremely difficult to deal with, sometimes even being called a "monster". However, before she was admitted to Hollywood Arts, she was depicted at her audition as a shy, sweet, nerdy girl. Her ego may have developed after Sikowitz told her how "great" she was.
Despite Trina's shallow exterior, she can be concerned about her sister when she wants to be. Later in the series, she showed some minor character growth (such as in "Locked Up!" when she tries to get Tori out of prison and showed genuine concern for her well being). Among the other characters, Tori can seem to be the most intolerant of her, which might be explained by constant exposure to Trina's ego at home (or the others simply not caring enough to be so annoyed).
Trina also seems to have bad luck, as she often gets hurt. Some examples include: Falling from the ceiling, and a wall falling on her, getting hit in the face with flour, and getting hit with a box of shoes.
By the final episode "Victori-yes", Trina has landed a role on a Spanish-language television show titled "Divertisimo", which she boasts is "a high-quality television show with top-notch acting". She is eventually shown portraying a giant piece of cheese being tormented by kids in mouse costumes.
Sinjin Van Cleef (Michael Eric Reid) is a strange, interesting and questionable student at Hollywood Arts. He is nerdy, disturbing, and very weird, often considered stranger than even Robbie or Cat; his locker has his chewed up food on it and he also likes to collect the teeth of past presidents' relatives. He is usually used as a fake date or bribed to fake date someone (Cat) or a dance (Trina) . He usually interrupts conversations with weird comments that don't make sense. They are usually between Tori or Trina and a friend like Andre and Cat. He is a fan of disco music and has a huge crush on Tori and Jade, despite the fact that both show more irritation than interest in his presence. Sinjin is skilled in the background work on the school's productions and performances. He is shown to be proficient with audio, lighting, and making props and is the apparent leader of the technical team. He appears in almost every episode of the series, except for "Stage Fighting"," "Cat's New Boyfriend," "Sleepover at Sikowitz's," "Locked Up!", "The Breakfast Bunch" and "Driving Tori Crazy". It is revealed in "A Christmas Tori" that he has a sister named Courtney (played by Dominique Grund) who also attends Hollywood Arts.
Erwin Sikowitz (pronounced "psycho-wits") (Eric Lange) is the hippie-like acting teacher at Hollywood Arts. His habits might be interpreted as weird and his methods are shown to be often very strange (such as throwing a ball at Cat while she was performing), but at times very effective. He often walks around barefoot (which is the supposed traits of the hippies) when he teaches or anytime really. He likes to enter the class through the window and is almost always seen drinking from a coconut because, as Jade says, "the milk gives him visions". Tori gave him two dollars on her first day at Hollywood Arts, thinking he was homeless. He also gave Cat, Jade, Beck, Andre, and Robbie permission to start a fake ping-pong team to make money and have a fancy dinner. He claims to be 34 years old in "The Diddly-Bops".
He appears in "Pilot", "The Bird Scene", "Beck's Big Break", "The Great Ping Pong Scam", "Cat's New Boyfriend", "Freak The Freak Out", "Rex Dies", "The Diddly-Bops", "Sleepover at Sikowitz's", "Beck Falls for Tori", "Tori Gets Stuck", "Prom Wrecker", "Locked Up!", "iParty with Victorious", "Helen Back Again", "Tori Tortures Teacher", "Terror on Cupcake Street", "A Christmas Tori", The Gorilla Club, Tori & Jade's Playdate, April Fools Blank, How Trina Got In, Tori Goes Platinum (parts 1-2), Crazy Ponnie, Cell Block, Robbie Sells Rex, Star Spangled Tori and Victori-yes.
"Pilot" is the only episode where he is referred to as Mr. Sikowitz. In all other episodes, he is just called Sikowitz. In "Sleepover at Sikowitz's", it is revealed that he has a nephew named Jason, who went out on a date with Cat, although the results are not mentioned. His catchphrase is "Good Gandhi!" As strange as Sikowitz is, he is the favorite teacher of Tori, Cat, Jade, Beck, Andre, and Robbie, and is very open and comfortable with them.
Sikowitz is regularly seen drinking from a coconut (he once drank fermented coconut milk and had visions during Trina's audition). In one episode when Tori goes to him asking for help he is hanging upside down from the ceiling, and in another he stored his grandmother in the corner before slinging her over his shoulder and taking her to the hospital. He has an extremely strange house as revealed in "Sleepover at Sikowitz's". At the Hollywood Arts Prom he brought a pile of tires, matches and a bottle of fuel, thinking for unknown reasons that they were going to have a bonfire of tires.
Sikowitz appeared in the Sam & Cat episode "#MommaGoomer." He is seen teaching his students about backward acting when Sam and Cat comes in. Sikowitz scolds Cat for showing up very late with class being almost over. When the bell rings, Sam and Cat tell Sikowitz that they'd like to use his classroom for charity called "The Salvation Goomers" (which was a cover-up for Goomer claiming to his mother that he is a history teacher). During Goomer's teaching of history to Sam, Cat, Dice, Goomer's Mom, and the local shruggers, Sikowitz comes in stating that he had gone to Charityosity.com where he found nothing about "The Salvation Goomers." After Goomer confessed to his mother that he is actually a MMA Fighter, Sikowitz uses an electric shaver to get the fake pit hair off of Dice's armpits claiming that he grew them too soon. On a related note, Cat has a picture of Sikowitz near her bed in the bedroom that she shares with Sam.
Lane Alexander (Lane Napper) is the school's guidance counselor for Hollywood Arts. Lane is a good guidance counselor, and often helps students with their problems and resolves their arguments, but sometimes can be reluctant at times, asking students "Why Me?". He is usually the one making the big announcements at school. He appears to either hate dry skin or is obsessed with lotion (as seen in "The Wood", when he squirts lotion over Robbie and Trina for arguing over the Grub Truck and making Festus break his arm), as he can be seen frequently applying lotion to his hands. He has a nephew named Devon, as seen in "The Diddly-Bops". Lane is the one who made The Wood leave (and showing he's not afraid to get physical), because it was becoming an issue with the students and disrupting the learning environment. He tends to be a bit extreme in his dealings, such as when he issued a two-week detention to Tori for an accidental hit on Jade during a stage fighting practice.
He appears in "Pilot", "The Bird Scene", "Stage Fighting", "Tori The Zombie", "Robarazzi", "Beck's Big Break", "The Great Ping Pong Scam", "Cat's New Boyfriend", "The Diddly Bops", "The Wood", "Tori Gets Stuck", "iParty With Victorious", "Who Did It to Trina?", "Tori Tortures Teacher", and "Jade Gets Crushed".
As revealed on his profile on TheSlap.com, Lane's last name is Alexander.
David and Holly Vega
They appear in "Pilot", "The Birthweek Song", "Sleepover at Sikowitz's", "Locked Up", and "Jade Gets Crushed" though their mother appeared in "Robarazzi", "A Film by Dale Squires","Driving Tori Crazy", "Cell Block", and "Helen Back Again", and their dad appears in "Freak the Freak Out", "Locked Up", and "Car, Rain and Fire".
They are shown to be caring and loving parents, but when their daughters get too out of control, they tend to stay out of it and go off doing something else, which is indicating that they are very unhelpful parents. For example, in "Freak the Freak Out", Trina gets her wisdom teeth removed and their parents decide to go out of town so they wouldn't have to take care of her, knowing she would go out of control. Their dad is a cop, which Tori likes to point out at times, usually to Sinjin, but also to others especially if someone is annoying her.
Charlotte Harris (Marilyn Harris) is Andre's grandmother. She is mentally unstable and often paranoid about things, for example that in the episode "Wi-Fi in the Sky" she got scared seeing her reflection in the mirror, and screams "ANDRE, THERE'S ANOTHER ME ON THE WALL!!!". Andre tells Tori in the "Pilot" episode that her coming to see Trina perform "Make it Shine" that this is the first time in six years that she has left her house. He also mentions in "Survival of the Hottest" that before she lost her mind, she used to tell him, "Andre, no matter how bad things get, you can always make it better by singing a song" (to which Trina says, "That's. So. STUPID!".) She is shown to almost be afraid of everything including various sensible objects (such as clocks and mirrors). When she is greeted by new people, she hides behind anything she finds, while simultaneously shouting out "I don't know you!" She often snaps at Andre, and is possibly the only way she communicates with anyone. In "Wi-Fi in the Sky," she yells at Andre for "talking to himself" when he was in reality video chatting with Tori, Cat, and Beck, then freaks out and punches Andre's computer. During an interview on a video on TheSlap.com in which Andre read off her crazy text messages, her first name is revealed to be Charlotte. She has appeared in "Pilot", "Wi-Fi in the Sky", "Sleepover At Sikowitz's", "iParty With Victorious", and "Driving Tori Crazy".
Mrs. Lee (Susan Chuang) is the owner of Tori's favorite Chinese restaurant Wok Star, who volunteers to pay to produce Jade's play. But things get complicated when Mrs. Lee makes drastic changes to the script, and wants to put her daughter, Daisy in the play. Mrs. Lee returns in the episode "Andre's Horrible Girl", now operating a Sushi bar called Nozu after Wok Star burns down. This prompts Tori to ask if she is actually Chinese or Japanese, which she answers with a smack to Tori's head.
She later appears in the third-season episode "How Trina Got In", making Tori and Robbie chop a pile of squid after they can't pay their bill. After the bill was worked off, Robbie accidentally breaks some dishes causing Mrs. Lee to have Robbie work off the damages with one of the jobs being rubbing Kwakoo's feet.
She also appeared in the fourth-season episode "The Hambone King" where she praises Robbie's hamboning skills.
Kwakoo is a worker at Nozu that works for Mrs. Lee as a chef as seen in "How Trina Got In."
In "The Hambone King," Kwakoo asked Robbie's autograph after seeing Robbie's hambone video.
Festus (Marco Aiello) is the proprietor of The Grub Truck. He appears in "Beck's Big Break" "The Wood", and "Locked Up!". In "The Wood", he was injured by Robbie and Trina and they were forced to replace him for a short time. Tori and Jade accidentally destroyed his car in the same episode and had to take him home in a wheelbarrow. He is the one who tells Tori about his home country, Yerba, and how they could stay there if they perform a song every day and the country would pay for the hotel rooms in the episode "Locked Up!". He either has or may have a habit of lying to customers. In "Beck's Big Break" when Tori asked for a sandwich he said he only served burritos but gave her a sandwich anyway. In the same episode, he's also shown to scream at people who aren't there when in the Grub Truck.
Burf (Darsan Solomon) is a student who goes to Hollywood Arts and always hangs out with Sinjin. He was first seen in the episode Tori & Jade's Playdate spying on Tori & Jade for Sikowitz so they can't escape Nozu. Then, he appeared in Driving Tori Crazy when Cat offers him a bag of rags. Then, he appeared in "The Blonde Squad". He has also appeared in "Tori Goes Platinum", he sent in a video for the contest singing 5 Fingaz' to the Face. In Tori & Jades Playdate he was seen eating a yellow pepper. He has also appeared in the Season 4 episode, Wanko's Warehouse when they were waiting in the line for the big sale in the morning and with Tori asking them if they can join them so they can sneak inside so they be the first ones their for the sale the next day.
Principal Eikner (David Starzyk) is the former principal of Hollywood Arts. Though he is rarely seen in the show, he is mentioned in many subsequent episodes. He appears in "Pilot" and "Helen Back Again". In "Helen Back Again", he resigns as principal after announcing his engagement to a Tahitian woman and plans to move to Tahiti. He is also seen in the episode "How Trina Got In," where he appears in the flashbacks of Andre, Jade, Beck, and Sikowitz.
Cat frequently mentions her brother who is yet to be named. He is often mentioned as a focal point of bizarre off-screen antics, which either happen to him or which he causes himself. Examples include eating Cat's charm bracelet, getting stabbed in Japan, biting Cat on the foot, falling from a terrace onto a shuttle bus, being shot by a clown, painting his body purple for a job interview, and (most disturbingly) somehow procuring twelve gallons of real blood for Jade's play. On TheSlap, Cat revealed he isn't allowed outside by himself and that he plays "hide and seek" with the police. His favorite flavor of ice cream is "Funky Nut Blast", as revealed in "Ice Cream for Ke$ha". In "Car, Rain and Fire", Tori, Cat, and Jade borrow Cat's brother's car which had unusual features such as a coverless roof, rope for a seat belt and a bag of prosthetic feet in the trunk. In the episode, Cat says her brother is "pretty weird." She also mentions that he has a turtle with "special" problems. His first name is never revealed.
Ryder Daniels (Ryan Rottman) is a male student at Hollywood Arts who dated Tori for a short time. He is in the episode Beggin' on Your Knees where Tori found out from her friends that he uses girls to get good grades and then soon after breaks up with them. Tori then humiliates him in front of the whole school by singing "Beggin' on Your Knees" to him.
Hayley Ferguson (Jillian Clare) is a girl who competed against Cat and Jade in a karaoke contest with her friend Tara Ganz in Freak The Freak Out. They won the contest against Jade and Cat because her father is the owner of Karaoke Dokie and the judge of the Karaoke Contest. Before the contest she started flirting with Beck which started a feud between her and Jade. She has a very mean and snobbish attitude especially toward Jade. Hayley and Tara were easily defeated when Tori performed her new song, "Freak the Freak Out" under the disguise of Louise Nordoff, and after she and Tara lost the bet to Tori, was forced to "babysit" Trina, who had recently gotten her wisdom teeth removed and made it really hard to take care of her.
Tara Ganz (Jamie Snow) is a girl who competed against Cat and Jade in a karaoke contest with her friend Hayley Ferguson is in Freak The Freak Out where she won the contest against Jade and Cat because her friend Hayley's father owned Karaoke Dokie and was the judge of the contest. Before the contest she flirted with Andre with Hayley flirting with Beck. They officially lose when Tori Vega (disguised as Louise Nordoff), sings Freak the Freak Out, and they are forced to "babysit" Trina. She also appears in "Tori Goes Platinum", Tara tried out for the contest but lost.
Principal Helen Dubois (Yvette Nicole Brown) is the current principal of Hollywood Arts. She only appears in "Helen Back Again" and is not a main character. All students had to reaudition for her where the least worthy students would be kicked out of Hollywood Arts. Due to Helen's unnamed assistant mixing up Tori with Trina, Tori had to come up with a plan that involved Robbie dressing up as a robber where he would be beaten up by Trina using her karate skills. After that plan worked, Helen allowed Trina to stay at Hollywood Arts.
It has been mentioned by Dan Schneider that she would've been a recurring character if the show hadn't stopped production
Note: Her role in Drake & Josh is mentioned when she talked about her previous job at Premiere as the manager and at the end when she says "And I thought Crazy Steve was crazy"; earlier when Sikowitz asks her to tell about herself, she first mentions Happy Times and her role saying "That is not my job!", and she also says that she managed the Premiere Movie Theater in San Diego.

She is very computer illiterate and constantly has to ask Robbie for help to the point where he is annoyed and convinces her that the internet has been cancelled. Her role in her first appearance mirrors her actress's previous role as Sylvia Fine in The Nanny, such as encouraging her grandchild to have a successful love life, a loud voice, and even a loud, unseen husband whose name is Morty. Her dislike for Cat steams from her dyeing her hair the color of red velvet cupcakes; she specifically says that "a girl doesn't dye her hair that color unless she has psychological problems!".

Her house caught on fire when Cat's cinnamon bun scented candle accidentally started a fire on the front porch of her house and soon after she was rushed to a hospital where she was resting very uncomfortably.

At the end, Moose then explains that he likes Canadian girls because they like hockey, are much bigger, and aren't as weird as "L.A. Girls". After Cat and Tori sing a song titled "L.A. Boys", Jade tries to take him to Karaoke Dokie but stops her car and they make out.
Kojeezy (Kool Kojak) is a guy who is a music producer and is in the episode The Bad Roommate. Tori stole Andre's beat and he got mad so Tori invited him to make some lyrics with her so they can sing it for him tomorrow.

Andre and Tori are thrilled when Kojeezy suddenly states that they have to pass "The Baby Test" which is a test to see if the baby will cry (which means won't produce and buy) or smile (which means will produce and buy). The baby ended up crying so Kojeezy won't be producing and buying the song.
