Get to know the main characters (the Original Ghouls) of Monster High:
Known as the daughter of Victor Frankenstein’s monster (which people mistakenly call “Frankenstein”), Frankie Stein is a very iconic gothic style character in the series who may be clumsy but considerate to others. You will love her heels, her dark but the fashionable dress and her nicely-patterned hair.

With a blue color scheme, Ghoulia Yelps is the tech smart of the Original Ghouls due to her intelligence. However, she’s only able to communicate using a zombie language (by which she only groans) but that doesn’t stop her from being an important part of the team.
Inspired with a sea creature motif but in a girly shade of pink and light blue, the blonde haired Lagoona Blue is basically the daughter of the Creature from Black Lagoon. Her amazing ability to talk to aquatic creatures is what makes her special.
