Casper

Casper

Casper, also known as Casper The Friendly Ghost, is an over 200-year-old young ghost boy [1], the nephew of the Ghostly Trio and the main protagonist. He has been forced to attend Scare School to learn how to scare humans and stop being so friendly or else he will be banished to the Valley of the Shadows. In Scare School, Casper's closest best friends are Mantha and Ra who he loves like a family.
Casper is overly friendly and helpful, which is both his strength and weakness. He is quick-witted, being able to come up with speeches that convince people to go along with him. He is also independent, strong, never forgets who he is and is loyal to his friends.

Casper knows he is supposed to be scary, not friendly but he doesn't understand why people and creatures just can't get along. Casper's attachment to both the "fleshy" and creature worlds, while not quite belonging to either, often leads to problems at Scare School and he continuously faces the oppressions of Thatch, a vampire bully and the Headmasters, Alder and Dash, but he always finds the courage to face any obstacles heads on. As the series goes on, he shows signs of romantic feelings for Mantha.
