Main Characters

Frankie Stein

Frankie Stein is the 15-day-old daughter of Frankenstein and his bride. She has waist-length black and white hair and has heterochromia (her right eye is blue and her left one is green). Frankie's fashion style is preppy, which usually revolves mostly around plaid prints (including lightning bolts) and schoolgirl style. In "Miss Infearmation," Frankie has developed a crush on Jackson, unconcerned that he is a normie. However, in the next episode, "Hyde and Shriek," she is blushing near Holt. After the stress both Holt and Jackson placed on her after they learned that they are, in fact, the same person, Frankie has placed her relationship with both on pause. Her latest diary mentions a gargoyle football player with a Scottish accent, known only by his jersey number, which is 7. In the book series Frankie begins a relationship with a normie called Brett. This relationship is only book exclusive. Her pet is named Watzit, who is put together from several different animals,but mostly resembles a domesticated dog.He also has different color eyes. She is voiced by Kate Higgins.

Draculaura

Draculaura is the daughter of Count Dracula. She was at first 1,599 (15 in American years) years old when the franchise began, but eventually turned 1,600 with a doll line dedicated to her birthday. Draculaura is a vegan vampire who abstains from drinking blood and eating meat; in fact, the mere mention of the word "blood" or just seeing a piece of meat causes her to faint. She is one of the shortest characters in the web series, being taller than only Ghoulia Yelps. Draculaura's taste in fashion is influenced by the Victorian and Japanese Lolita style, which is typically in shades of pink and black. She has had many crushes in the short time the franchise has been out, including Valentine, the main antagonist of "Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love"; and Heath Burns has been one of her resent relationships however, her current boyfriend is Clawd Wolf, Clawdeen's older brother. She has a pet bat named Count Fabulous. She is voiced by Debi Derryberry.

Clawdeen Wolf

Clawdeen is the daughter of the Werewolf. She is 15 years old and comes from a rather large family. Her BFFs are Frankie Stein and Draculaura, whose father sometimes objects when Clawdeen visits her. Clawdeen complains about Howleen, her younger sister, with whom she shares a bunk bed, because Howleen is constantly chewing on her shoes, borrowing her clothes and getting them dirty, and wiping her nose on her jackets. She and her entire family (as of date) all speak with a Brooklyn accent. She loves leopard prints and open-toed pumps (sandals), so she is considered to be the fashionista of the group. Because her hair grows unnaturally quickly, she is constantly having to shave her legs. 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 examplified in the episode "Talon Show." Clawdeen dreams of owning her own fashion design brand, plays on the soccer team, and, in the webisodes, enjoys track and field. Clawdeen disliked Cleo, but only 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 cheerleading [fearleading] squad.Clawdeen hated the idea of Draculaura and Clawd dating, but, eventually, she was wrong and finally accepts the two as a couple. She has a purple pet cat named Crescent. She is voiced by Salli Saffioti

Cleo de Nile

Cleo de Nile, or is the daughter of the Mummy. She is 5,842 years old. Her clothing motif typically involves wrappings and streaks of real gold in her hair. Cleo took over as fearleading captain when her older sister, Nefera, graduated. Cleo does not get along with Nefera because Nefera uses every opportunity she can to humiliate her younger sister. Cleo is considered stuck up, but will always help her friends, if necessary.Cleo is also the tallest ghoul out of her main group of friends.In Volume 1, she was the main antagonist, but in Volume 2, her attitude was slowly softened and she was portrayed as one of the protagonists. Cleo has a turquoise pet cobra named Hissette and can even talk to snakes and get them to do what she says. However, she refuses to manipulate her boyfriend, Deuce, with this ability. She is voiced by Salli Saffioti.

Lagoona Blue

Lagoona Blue is the daughter of the Sea Monster. Lagoona is a transfer student from "down under" the sea and speaks with an Australian accent. Lagoona's mother is an ocean nymph who cannot leave her grotto without becoming ill. It is possible this mixed heritage has enabled Lagoona to breathe both below and above water. Lagoona is widely liked by the student body for her kindness and good advice. Lagoona is the captain of the school's swim team and can even surf the roughest waves in platform sandals. She is dating her teammate, Gillington "Gil" Webber. The two are happy together, but Gil is a freshwater monster whose parents do not want him to consort with a saltwater girl. Lagoona is deeply upset when Gil's parents have him transferred to an underwater school, but Gil is shown to have returned to Monster High in "Here Comes Treble." Lagoona prefers to dress in tanks, shorts and sandals, but would dress up for special occasions. Lagoona is know to be a little tomboyish, caring, smart, and is known for giving advice. Her pet is a pink piranha named Neptuna. She is voiced by Laura Bailey.

Deuce Gorgon

Deuce 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 driver's license soon. A member of the casketball team, Deuce loves to cook and is quite a skilled chef, but he is too self-conscious to showcase his culinary prowess 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 24 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 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 someone Medusa clashed with in her past. Understandably, Medusa is not amused. He was voiced by Yuri Lowenthal in Volumes 1 and 2. Cam Clarke filled in for part of Volume 3 until Evan Smith was cast to be the new voice for Deuce.

Ghoulia Yelps

Ghoulia 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 ghoul at Monster High. Part of this may be because as a zombie, she never stands up straight. Ghoulia has a romantic interest in Slow-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 dodge ball She is voiced by Audu Paden

Monster High Students

Holt Hyde

Holt is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Hyde. He thinks he is 16 years old. Highly expressive and extremely passionate about music, Holt is the alter ego of Jackson Jekyll and, until "Dueling Personality," is unaware of his other half. He only appears at night and has never seen the sun, despite his best efforts. Recent information implies the transformation might be related to loud music, or is just another way to make it occur. In the books, he is known by DJ Hyde and only appears when the temperature is high. The books provide more background on Jackson and DJ as their mother explains they are actually the grandsons of the original Dr. Jekyll. The tonic, however, combined with his DNA and was passed down to his descendants. Jackson and Holt's father was driven mad from this and is in an asylum. In the second book, he learns about his alter ego through Melody and Brett's documentary on RADs. He has a pet chameleon named Crossfade, who, when around Holt, is red. Holt makes his first appearance in "Hyde and Shriek." He is distressed to learn that Jackson is his other half in "Dueling Personality," calling Jackson a normie and a dork. He is voiced by Cindy Robinson.

Jackson Jekyll

Jackson is the only human on campus and the cousin of Heath Burns. His being human makes him a constant target for bullies. Jackson is a reserved individual in contrast to the boisterous personality Holt has. Jackson had a short-lived relationship with Draculaura, but, due to his transitions into Holt, would unintentionally stand Draculaura up on dates and the two decided to be friends. The webisodes introduced Frankie as a love interest for the two alter-egos. When Jackson and Holt learned of their alter-ego's existence, Frankie placed the relationship on pause until the two can get along. In the books, he and Melody are a couple and he becomes aware of his alter ego, DJ Hyde, through Melody's recording of the transformation. In the lost chapter in the first Monster High novel, it is revealed he probably helped Ghoulia in illustrating her Dead Fast fan comic. Like Holt, his pet is a chameleon named Crossfade; Crossfade is tan and green when Jackson is the dominant entity. In "Dueling Personality," Jackson is repulsed to learn that Holt is his "loud" alter ego. He is voiced by Cindy Robinson.

Spectra Vondergeist

The daughter of the ghosts. She is 16 years old, speaks in a high-pitched, somewhat ethereal voice, and has a ball-and-chain motif. She can float through walls and has an uncanny ability to hear everyone's gossip. She prides herself on being sweet, like her favorite food, angel food cake and getting the truth out to everyone about the ins and outs of Monster High. She writes the column "Oh My Oracle" for the school newspaper and does so anonymously so that her name is not linked to any possibly bad advice. Spectra believes she comes from a very noble family, until Ghoulia finds an old newspaper article that reveals the truth, which she promises to keep secret. What Spectra's family did in the previous life is unknown to the audience, but the memory breaks her heart. Her first episode mention/appearance is in "Miss Infearmation," when she is known only as "The Ghostly Gossip." She makes a full appearance in "Ghostly Gossip". Her pet is a ghost ferret named Rhuen. Spectra appears in the third and fourth Monster High novel, where she begins to date Billy Phaedin, a book exclusive character. In the books it's hinted there is slight friction between her and Frankie. She is voiced by Erin Fitzgerald.

Abbey Bominable

The 16-year-old daughter of The Abominable Snowman, Abbey is an exchange student from the Himalayas. She is described as a ghoul with white hair streaked with blue, purple, and pink and topped with a fuzzy headband. Her family is good friends with Headless Headmistress Bloodgood; because of this, Abbey lives with Bloodgood while she attends Monster High. Her first webisode appearance is in "Back-to-Ghoul." Abbey's native language is Yetish and though she can understand English fairly well, she has difficulty grasping slang terms. Abbey's speech is very direct, which can seem and is often misinterpreted to be insensitive and mean. She explains that her style of speech is a function of her culture where oxygen is so low the Yeti people only speak when and what is necessary. Abbey is a sweet girl with a good sense of humor, but her height and strength tend to intimidate people. The Fearbook lists her as captain of the snowboarding team. In her diary, she writes about Heath Burns using corny pick-up lines to try to get a date with her. Although Abbey stated that she comes from the Himalaya Mountains which are located in Nepal and south western China, she speaks with a Russian accent. She takes pleasure in ignoring Heath, but decides that she will accept his request for a date once he asks her properly. Her pet is a baby woolly mammoth whose name is Shiver. Abbey is mentioned in the third Monster High novel as one of the names on a petition campaigning to help Mrs. J, Jackson Jekyll's mother, get her job back. She is voiced by Erin Fitzgerald.

Clawd Wolf

Son of the Werewolf, Clawd is Clawdeen's and Howleen's 17-year old brother. Clawd is frequently mentioned in the diaries that come with the dolls and made his first webisode appearance in "Fur Will Fly." He dated Cleo prior to Frankie attending Monster High 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 BMOC (Big Monster on Campus) and plays on the casketball team with Deuce. In the second wave of dolls, Draculaura has developed a crush on him. At first, he thought of her as a friend, but eventually reciprocated her feelings and now the two are a couple. He owns a pet gargoyle bulldog named Rockseena. He was voiced by Yuri Lowenthal in Volume 1 but has been voiced by Ogie Banks since Volume 2.

Heath Burns

Heath is a teenaged 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.[1] 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 developing. He is also dating Haley, a normie, in the book series, and she considers them to be 'the perfect couple'. In Volume 1 of the webisodes, Heath was voiced by Yuri Lowenthal, but as of Volume 2 he is voiced by Cam Clarke.

Gillington "Gil" Webber

Gil is the son of a river monster and is Lagoona's boyfriend. He was first introduced in the webisode "Blue Lagoona" and has made recurring appearances since. Gil is one of the top members on the swim team alongside Lagoona. When on land, Gil has to wear a tank full of water over his head in order to breathe, though "Hatch Me If You Can" and the Gloom Beach arc shows that he can be on land for a short period of time without it. Gil reciprocates Lagoona's feelings, but his parents disapprove of their relationship because Lagoona is a saltwater monster, while the Webber family is from freshwater. In "Back-to-Ghoul," Lagoona is upset at having found out that Gil's parents transferred him to another school, ostensibly to separate the couple. he is also in a nickilodeon special in "escape from skull shores". In "Here Comes Treble," Gil has apparently returned to Monster High. His first doll is part of the 2012 beach line, Skull Shores. He was voiced by Yuri Lowenthal in Volumes 1 and 2. Evan Smith now voices him starting in Volume 3.

Toralei Stripe

Toralei is 15 years old, and on the first of her nine lives. She is an orange werecat who was introduced in the webisode "Scream Building," along with two werecat twins, Purrsephone and Meowlody. 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 fearleading squad beats Cleo's in competition. Toralei's doll has a tail, unlike her depiction in the webisodes. Her pet is a baby saber-toothed tiger cub named Sweet Fang. She is voiced by America Young.

Purrsephone and Meowlody

Purrsephone and Meowlody are twin werecat sisters who are also Toralei's best friends.Purrsephone and Meowlody met Toralei in the pound. Both have dark gray fur; the hair on Purrsephone'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. Neither twin has yet spoken any lines on her own in the webisodes; most of their speech has been occasional meowing and purring, and chiming in with Toralei. These occasional vocalizations are performed by America Young.

Nefera de Nile

At age 5,845, Nefera is Cleo's older sister by three years. She is cold-hearted, self-centered, and contemptuous towards most other monsters. The otherwise haughty 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 a 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. She is voiced by Wendee Lee.

Operetta

Operetta is the 16-year-old daughter of the Phantom of the Opera. She was born in France, but raised in New Orleans, Louisiana where her father haunted a river-boat. Because of this, she speaks with a thick 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 rockabilly-styled clothing, and a music note mask over her left 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. She is voiced by Gigi Sarroino in Volume 2 and is voiced by Cindy Robinson starting in Volume 3.

Howleen Wolf

Howleen is Clawd and Clawdeen's younger sister at the age of 14. Her accent sounds similar to Clawdeen's. Howleen considers her sense of style as "were-punk", but Clawdeen characterizes Howleen's style as "like she got dressed in the dark." She shares a room with Clawdeen and is 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 Taur. Howleen's first appearance was in the Nickelodeon special "Fright On!" The special deals with Howleen's struggle in wanting to find her own identity apart from her brother and sister. She has a pet hedgehog named Cushion. She is voiced by America Young.

Moe 'Slow-Moe' Deadovitch

Slow-Moe occasionally shows up in webisodes and his first appearance was in "Cyrano De Ghoulia" as Ghoulia's crush. Like Ghoulia, he only speaks the in-universe zombie language, which sounds like grunts and moans to those who do not understand it. Slow-Moe reciprocates Ghoulia's feelings, but has another zombie boy as a rival for her affections. Slow-Moe is a member of the chess team, whose members are mostly zombies. He does not like Heath's guitar playing and swiftly punches out Heath's guitar after hearing one chord. Slow-Moe is voiced by Audu Paden.

Rochelle Goyle

Rochelle is the daughter of the Gargoyles and is 415 years old. Rochelle is from Scaris, France and a new transfer student at Monster High. 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. Robecca Steam, her best friend, tells Rochelle to give up on Deuce as it will only end in heartbreak. Rochelle loves to sculpt and is fond of architecture. Her pet is a gargoyle griffin named Roux. She is voiced by Erin Fitzgerald. She was revealed at the NYC Toy Fair and released in May.

Robecca Steam

Robecca is 116 years old and the daughter of a Mad Scientist. Robecca does strongly resemble that of a human with rivets embedded in her literal copper skin. She was afraid that her style would be considered 'old-fashioned' only to learn that steam-punk is in vogue. Robecca's internal clock is slow and no matter what she does, always seems to be late for school. Robecca loves to perform daring tricks with the help of her rocket boots. Robecca's stunts rescue Rochelle from nearly being drowned in a pit within the catacombs. This event helps the two become good friends. Her doll was revealed at the New York Toy Fair 2012 and is expected to be released within the same year. Her pet is a mechanical penguin named Captain Penny. She is voiced by Julie Maddalena Kliewer.

Venus McFlytrap

Venus is the 15 year old daughter of the Plant Monster. She likes to wear loud and flashy clothing to attract other monsters' attention. Venus is a strong advocate for environmental issues and sometimes she will emit a pollen that 'persuade' people to her cause. Venus made a non-speaking cameo appearance in the television specials "Why do Ghouls Fall in Love?" and "Escape from Skull Shores". Her pet is a sentient Venus flytrap named Chewlian that bears a striking resemblance to Audrey II. She is voiced by Julie Maddalena Kliewer.

C.A. Cupid

The Daughter of Eros. Her age is "as old as teenage love." She only goes by the initials C.A. which are short for Chariclo Arganthone. She is the adopted daughter of Eros and he found C.A. as infant on the doorstep to her temple with no knowledge on what kind of monster she is. C.A. has done research with Ghoulia in which they believe she is a bone elemental. C.A. Cupid realizes that she loves being who she is more than what she is and is happy with her adopted family. Just as her father serves as the god of love for humans, C.A. takes on a similar role for monsters. Unlike her father, though, she is a terrible archer. Her arrows set up the pre-series coupling of Cleo de Nile and Clawd Wolf. She realizes how hasty she was in her decision to use her arrows to hook-up the two as the magic began to wear off and Cleo and Clawd eventually grew apart and broke-up. To make up for her subpar archery skills, C.A. is great at giving relationship advice and hosts a radio talk show in the catacombs of Monster High. Cupid had her first big role in Monster High's Valentine's Day special "Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love?" She would like to have a pet, but is unable to make up her mind as to what to choose for one. She is voiced by Erin Fitzgerald.

Scarah Screams

Scarah is the daughter of a banshee. She appears in the background of many webisodes. Scarah has white eyes with no 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, possibly 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. She is voiced by Erin Fitzgerald.

Manny Taur

Son of the Minotaur. Manny has appeared in the background of many Monster High webisodes in season 2, making his debut in the foreground as of "Miss Infearmation." In both the webisodes and doll diaries he is portrayed as a bully. In Abbey's diary, he is picking on Howleen, Clawdeen's little sister, and in the webisode, he is picking on Jackson. In the first season 3 webisode, "Dodgeskull," Manny and other monsters refuse to pick Slow-Moe or any other zombies for their Dodgeskull team due to zombies slow in their movements, which infuriates Ghoulia. Manny has a sister named Minnie who, according to Frankie, does not approve of her brother's behavior. He is voiced by the animated series producer, Audu Paden.

HooDude VooDoo

Hoo-Dude is a voodoo doll that Frankie made in "Hoo-doo You Like?" when her friends insist on meeting the boyfriend that, in a misguided attempt to fit in, she claims that she has. Hoo-Dude was at first an inanimate doll, but when Frankie tossed him aside after her friends assure her that it was okay for her to not have a boyfriend, he sprang to life, crying over their "break-up." He returns in "Ghostly Gossip," still pining for Frankie. Heartbroken that she had shifted her interest to Jackson Jekyll/Holt Hyde, he beats on his chest in anguish, causing boys in his immediate vicinity to suddenly double over with intense chest pains. Hoo-Dude can physically affect sensations on other people in two ways. The first is that teenage boys near him will feel the painful sensations that Hoo-Dude would normally feel, i.e. one of Hoo-Dude's pins going through his own chest which caused boys nearby to feel stabbing chest pains. The second is if Hoo-Dude is holding another person's belongings and that person will feel whatever physical stimulus Hoo-Dude experiences. He was part of a bundle with 2012's SDCC exclusive Scarah Screams doll. He is voiced by Cam Clarke.

Invisi-Billy

Invisi-Billy is originally Billy Phaidan from Lisi Harrison's Monster High novels whose introduction served as an April Fool's Prank by showing Invisi Billy's box without a doll in it. The box had said "How do you know I'm not in the box?" His box also mentions that he has a question cat as a pet, that he includes an invisible diary and that the diary features "Novel length diary detailing every MH character's secret origin". He has also had artwork released of him. He will be released as an actual doll and a trademark has been filed.[2] He can be seen in some of the web cartoons as an extra.

Monster High Teachers

Headless Headmistress Bloodgood

Based on the Headless Horseman, Bloodgood is in charge of the students at Monster High. Like her name implies, she can take off her head whenever it pleases her. She rides her night-mare throughout the school halls and will use horse analogies when she feels it is appropriate. Bloodgood is a good friend of Abbey'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. She is voiced by Laura Bailey.

Mr. "Hack" Hackington

He is the teacher in the webseries that is based on Leatherface. 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. He is voiced by Audu Paden.

Mr. Where

Mr. Where is The Invisible Man who can also make his bandages become invisible. He is the drama teacher at the school, but also seems to be in charge of the debate team in the webseries. He was voiced by Yuri Lowenthal.

Mr. Lou Zarr

Lou Zarr 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. He was voiced by Troy Baker.

Mr. Rotter

Mr. Rotter is the Dead Languages teacher, most likely because he was alive when they were actually being spoken. He is a tough teacher who never gives his students A's. He was wary of the fearleading squad when Toralei kept setting them up to look like they would be pulling pranks on the graduating class. He is voiced by Yuri Lowenthal in Volumes 1 and 2. Cam Clarke is his voice actor in Volume 3.

Ms. Kindergrubber

Ms. Kindergrubber 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; he is the only student whose cooking she will eat without question. Because she does not like to check oven temperatures, Ms. Kindergrubber is quite possibly the witch from Hansel and Gretel.

Book Exclusive Characters

These are characters exclusive to Lisi Harrison's "Monster High" novels. The books take place at Merston High in Salem, Oregon and deals with the RADS (Regular Attribute Dodgers)/monsters trying to cope with living in a normie (human) world.

Melody Carver

Melody 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

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. Near the ending of "Where There's a Wolf, There's a Way" Billy meets Spectra Vondergeist, who she admits that she had liked him since eighth grade. He has shown up in the web cartoons and been trademarked for a doll underneath the name Invisi-Billy.[3]

Brett Redding

Brett 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

Bekka 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 beggining of book 4 it is shown that Becca had transfered to a new school, after which; little is said about her.

Candace Carver

Candace 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

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.
