Horror Takes a Holiday Characters
ANITA FRANKENSTEIN – Anita is the Bride of Frankenstein, the Mother of the Bride, First lady of the Bolt crime organization and now Business Woman of the Year. She can be humble and sweet when in her shop or with family but holds herself as queen bee when the business is involved. Either as an XO or an ordinary she is beautiful and elegant. But do not make the mistake of crossing this woman. There is an underlying malice that makes even the bravest of monsters quake in her presence.
BERNARDO FRANKENSTEIN – Bernardo is the Father of the Bride and the leader of the Bolts, Bernardo is in a precarious situation to say the least. However, there is no mistaking this monster for a weakling. His roles as the head of a crime organization and Salem’s Chief Medical Examiner have led to self-confidence bar none. Whether he is displaying his XO abilities or hiding behind his human persona, he commands everyone’s attention when he walks into a room. However, the rough bravado seems to melt away when he is with family and friends.
CHINO STORM - Chino is second in command of the Bolts and a very reluctant Best Man. To keep peace between the organizations he has been forced to stand up for Tony at the wedding. As a cracker jack meteorologist, his ordinary persona is the lead weatherman on the 7 o'clock news. His dazzling million-dollar smile and perpetual tan is only dwarfed by his impeccable dress. Make no mistake, he is not ashamed of his XO genetics and when choosing to be himself wears his hunchback proudly. The Storm family has been loyal to the Frankensteins for generations and Chino is no exception.
HARRY TALBOT - Harry is second in command of the Fangs and Tony’s Groomsman in this farce of a wedding. To keep peace between the organizations Tony has chosen Chino, a Bolt as his best man. Harry is lupine, strong, intelligent and quick witted. With an aura that exudes danger whether in his XO or ordinary form, people instinctually just move out of his way. He runs the Dark Night Casino for the Fang organization, a profession that puts him in a position to learn a lot about the people around him. Once over their initial fear of Harry, friends and strangers alike have no problem telling him their secrets.
LUCY DRACULA - Lucy is married to the leader of the Fangs and as a woman of power finds no reason to tolerate anything or anyone. Unfortunately, because Tony is an orphan she is playing the part of Mother of the Groom to keep her husband, Riff happy. Calling Anita arrogant would be like calling a rock hard. She can barely tolerate XOs and almost always shows her disdain when conversing with them. Dealing with ordinaries is something she feels beneath her and only does it when absolutely necessary.
MARIA FRANKENSTEIN - Maria is the Bride to Be and daughter of Bernardo Frankenstein, head of the Bolts. If people or XOs for that matter were described as a color, she would definitely be a pink! Friendly and outgoing, she is currently volunteering as a candy striper at the hospital and loves how great it feels to help people and make them happy. Accustomed to getting everything she wants, she is optimistic that her life will have a happy ending.
RIFF DRACULA - Maria is the Bride to Be and daughter of Bernardo Frankenstein, head of the Bolts. If people or XOs for that matter were described as a color, she would definitely be a pink! Friendly and outgoing, she is currently volunteering as a candy striper at the hospital and loves how great it feels to help people and make them happy. Accustomed to getting everything she wants, she is optimistic that her life will have a happy ending.
TONY GRIFFIN - Tony is a lieutenant with the Fangs and the Groom to Be. Riff Dracula saved him from certain death when he found the invisible baby strapped in the back seat of a car. Both his mother and father were killed in the accident. When not invisible, Tony has chosen a startling ordinary persona. There is no nice way to put it, he is homely. Whether he is invisible or not, he can enter a room unnoticed. Evidently Maria can see what most cannot, she loves him, and the marriage is on.
VANESSA DRACULA - Vanessa's father is the leader of the Fangs, which makes her a pretty special vampire by all accounts. To keep peace between the organizations her father is forcing her to be Maria’s Maid of Honor. She is proud, spoiled, aloof and basically contrary on her good days. It isn’t that she really goes out of her way to stand out, well maybe a little bit, but she just does! People don’t necessarily dislike her, it is more of a fear of all the discord that she can cause. Art has become her new passion and all her dark emotions come out on canvas.
