  • Kylie Galen is the protagonist of the Shadow Falls series. She has always felt that she didn't belong, but never did she imagine how much. When her mother sends her to Shadow Falls Camp, she learns that the place is not filled with troubled teens as she's told, but with supernatural creatures: vampires, werewolves, fairies, shape-shifters, and witches. The problem is she is one of them, but no one knows what she is, and her quest to find out begins. But problems don't stop coming from there - she is constantly followed by spirits that only she can see, her heart is tormented by her parting family and two guys who have a strong affection on her; the handsome and generous Derek who shares her feelings, and the hotheaded werewolf Lucas, who shares a secret past with her.
    Throughout the series, she develops multiple special powers, such as "dreamscaping", superhuman speed, superhuman strength, and healing that only come when she wishes to protect others. At the end of Taken at Dusk, she finds out that her species is called "chameleon": a hybrid that acquires abilities from several species passed down through the generations. In Whispers at Moonrise, she begins to show brain patterns and abilities of witches, vampires, faes and werewolves, respectively. At the end of Whispers at Moonrise, she leaves Shadow Falls to live with her grandfather. In Chosen at Nightfall, Kylie returns to Shadow Falls and discovers an enchanted sword to aid her in an upcoming battle against Mario. She searches in her heart and finally realizes her true feelings for Lucas. At the end of the novel, she confesses those feelings and successfully defeats Mario as well as his son John on the mission to save her mother while also ensures the acknowledgement of chameleons to the open world.
  • Derek Lakes is one of Kylie's two love interests in the storyline. He is a half-fae with power to sense/control emotions, erase memories, dreamscape and communicate with animals. Because his father left him at an early age, he formed a deep dislike to his hereditary powers. In the beginning of Born at Midnight, he attends Shadow Falls Camp solely to learn how to give up these abilities, but when he uses them to save the camp and Kylie, he finally learns the benefits of having them and openly embraces them. He has a strong connection with Kylie, but her affection towards Lucas and his ability to sense a powered-up version of her emotions put them at a distance. Near the end of Awake at Dawn, he leaves the camp to go on missions for the FRU (Fallen Research Unit), but returns in Taken at Dusk with ex-girlfriend, Ellie Mason, whom he confesses to having slept with when they reunited. At the end of Taken at Dusk, he confesses his love to Kylie and maintains as her friend in Whispers at Moonrise. In Chosen at Nightfall, he tries to get close to Kylie again, but she turns him down, saying they both had moved on. From then on, the two become friends officially. Near the end of the novel, Derek meets and falls for another chameleon named Jenny Yates.
  • Lucas Parker is the other of Kylie's love interests. He is a stubborn and possessive werewolf, who shares a secret past with Kylie. They first met when they were children, but Lucas had had a relentless affection towards her since then. They never saw each other again until 11 years later, when they reunite at Shadow Falls Camp. Near the end of Born at Midnight, he leaves the camp to free his half-sister from a werewolf gang.
    In Awake at Dawn, he is occasionally visited by Kylie in his dreams before his return to Shadow Falls, and saves her from a rogue vampire's capture. They begin a relationship sometime after Derek left the camp, but things become complicated when his pack and family refuse to let him be with someone not of their own kind. This very problem causes a rift between the two as Lucas himself wishes for Kylie to be a werewolf. He eventually finds out that she is a chameleon, but continues his relationship with her, saying that he loves her too much to let her go. At the end of Whispers at Moonrise, Kylie finds out that he is engaged to another werewolf in hopes of getting his father's vote to join the Werewolf Council and breaks off their relationship. In Chosen at Nightfall, Lucas gives up everything to win back her trust and affection. He also assigns himself to teach Kylie how to fight with a sword after a magical crusader sword appeared to her, and finds a way to become part of the Council without having to go through marriage. He manages to save Kylie from John Esparza and help her kill him at the end of the novel, and Kylie chooses Lucas instead of Derek by the end of the series.
  • Della Rose Tsang is a newly turned vampire with a stoic and headstrong personality, and a bad attitude. She is Kylie and Miranda's best friend and roommate. She became a vampire when she encountered cousin Chan in January, the encounter which activated her vampire genes, and he taught her everything he knew about supernaturals.

She had a boyfriend named Lee and dreamed of working in law enforcement rather than her father's plans of being a doctor. After her transformation, her family is led to believe that she is doing drugs and gets sent to Shadow Falls Camp for rehabilitation. In Born at Midnight, she befriends Miranda and Kylie, and helps conduct a plan to investigate the repeating murders of endangered animals in the next-door wildlife park. In Awake at Dawn, when Kylie mentions her knowledge about the death angels, Della begins to worry about what she might've done during her early stage as a vampire. Burnett takes her into the FRU agency for testing, and confirms her innocence. Near the end of Awake at Dawn, she returns home for parents weekend and finds out that Lee has found a new girlfriend. Della is assigned to be one of Kylie's shadows in Taken at Dusk, along with Jonathon, Perry, Derek, Miranda and Lucas. She also helps Kylie encourage Miranda's relationship with Perry, which she later regrets in Whispers at Moonrise since Miranda continuously talks about Perry. Burnett assigns her and Steve on a secret mission to confront a group of murderous vampires. During their time away, Steve comes to her aid again and again; first being when they confronted a drunken man beating up his wife; later when she runs into her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend, Steve kisses her in public to save her from embarrassment; during the mission, Della is forced to fight a werewolf-vampire girl to the death and gets stabbed in the chest. Steve fights the vampires and escapes with her, and later saves her from a pack of werewolves. While being treated by Steve, they give in to their passions and make out, but regrets it almost immediately. She then makes it clear to Steve that they will never start a relationship. When she returns with a hickey in Chosen at Nightfall, Miranda and Kylie demand answers. Steve continues to fight for her affection, despite her constant avoidance.
