Characters[edit]

Lola - The show's protagonist. She lives in a working-class family with one baby brother, one baby sister and her mother, and her enemy is Virginia. Her father is never shown. She mainly wears a long red baggy top which is identified as one of the cheapest clothes to wear in the episode "The Uniform" and she is short and chubby with short dark hair and also wears round purple glasses.

Virginia - The show's antagonist. Virginia suffers from a symptom where she thinks she is the center of the universe, as revealed in the episode "The Uniform". Her enemy is Lola, and she is used to hanging out with a girl named Beatrice and formerly Leticia. She is a rich, bratty girl, always giving her parents a hard time and usually getting what she wants. She is tall and thin with long blonde hair and is usually seen wearing a black leather coat, jeans and black and silver sunglasses.

Poppy - One of Lola's best friends, she wears a pinkish-purple top with a skull on it and she is also seen together with Lola. She is a tomboy.

Haide - Another of Lola's friends, she is usually seen with Lola and helping her with problems, along with Poppy. She and Poppy are sometimes involved in trying to reveal Virginia's plans. Originally from Cuba.

Agi and Yukio - The twin geniuses at San Lorenzo High. They are often seen creating robots and other gadgets. They have usually been together, even in trips to the Amazon rainforest or the Gobi desert.

Beatrice - One of Virginia's friends, or so she thinks. She is always seen with Virginia and helping her with her plots and schemes to embarrass Lola. She is also briefly seen helping Lola (but only to get Virginia's friendship back).

Charley - A student from San Lorenzo High. Charley hangs out with Lucas and Chuck and loves skateboarding. Lola and Virginia have crushes on him, often fighting to get him.

Lucas - The sneak. His closest friends are Charley and Chuck. He was also paid by Virginia in one episode to impersonate Marco Amore and make Lola sad, but Lola found out about Virginia's scheme and got him to dress up as Marco and take Lola home, and ends with the "Marco" cake that Lola made thrown at his face.

Chuck - One of Lola's classmates, his best friends are Charley and Lucas. Haide used to have a crush on him and Lola used to date him-- a revealed secret which nearly broke Lola and Haide's friendship.

Suzie - One of Lola's classmates. She has an older brother, who Lola and Virginia formerly had crushes on. She is seen hanging out with Lola and some of her other classmates.

Marco - A boy at Lola's school. He is a bit quiet. He has blond hair and wears a red shirt. He is not to be confused with Marco Amore.

Hugo - One of the students from San Lorenzo High, Hugo is the school's most talented dancer, even being the star of one of Marco Amore's music videos. He loves food and formerly dated Virginia.

Marco Amore - The hit singer from San Lorenzo, Marco has many adoring fans, including Lola, Virginia and the rest of Lola's class. Lola loves him a lot, especially since she is the head of the Marco Amore fan club. His real name is John Johnson.

Leticia - Virginia's former friend. Their friendship broke apart in the episode "San Lorenzo vs. Columbus", due to Virginia winning a horse race, thanks to Lola angering Virginia. Virginia later says (as recorded by Haide on Lola's video camera) that she doesn't need Leticia.

Ana - Teacher of San Lorenzo High.

Gustavo Buliavez - The school's chef. He used to teach Lola, her friends and Marco Amore music.
