Synopsis

Howler's adventures continue as he faces various threats, both returning and new villains.

Characters

Main

  • Jeffrey Morrison/Howler (voiced by Charlie Schlatter in his human form and Kevin Michael Richardson in his werewolf form) - a shy and well-meaning young adult who can turn into a werewolf at full moon, being out to revert his state while he fights threats.

  • Bella Stoker (voiced by Jennifer Hale) - a generally kind vampire who is Howler's love interest, often aiding him.
  • The Ghost Twins, consisting of:
    • George (voiced by Jeff Bennett) - a ghost boy who is usually happy and likes to goof off.

  • Frank N. Stein (voiced by John DiMaggio) - a frankenstein monster who is unintelligent. Despite that, however, he gets random bursts of intelligence. It is later explained by Bella Stoker that he has "multi-intelligence disorder", making him smart at times and stupid at other times.
