Scarah Screams is a 2010/2011-introduced and all-around character. She is a banshee, which is a ghost and a student at Monster High. As a creature that announces death, Scarah has the hardest time convincing her fellow students that she isn't announcing their demise just because she's talking to them. Because of this, Scarah has taken up telepathy classes so she can communicate with others by way of mind-talk, which doesn't generate fear like regular talking does. The one thing it doesn't help her with is cheering during a fearleading routine, which is why she has no interest in re-joining the Fear Squad ever again. Scarah is involved with the exchange program Monster High offers for students from Ireland and is the secretary of the student council. She's in a relationship with Invisi Billy, whom she can interact with with no problems even when he's invisible because of her mindreading ability.
Scarah is shown to be a helpful, but kind of quiet girl, who doesn't like to stand out. Even if a tad distant, she's still very friendly, especially to those close to her. She is shown to be compassionate, and possesses the ability to "read minds." In "Kind: The Shockumentary," she is one of the few ghouls to still raise their hands after the second question, showing that she is not self-centered. She enjoys to engage in writing.
Scarah Screams has unusual white eyes, without discernible irises or discernible pupils. She has black hair, mostly worn in a 60s mod fashion, specifically a shoulder-length bouffant flip, with a lime-to-light-olive-green Alice Band. Her skin is a pale blue to greenish tone (blue in the webisodes and TV specials, and green in the artwork) and she has blue to greenish lips. In the cartoon, Scarah is depicted wearing a lime green halter top with an olive green miniskirt and matching Alice band. The prototype doll also wears a baseball-style letter jacket in black with hot pink trim. She typically wears a lime-green turtleneck, sweater-styled sleeveless halter top for a shirt or top, and wears a dark-olive-green skirt which is a miniskirt for bottom-wear, with footwear or shoes being shortish, high-heeled, deep-blue-green heels. Scarah also sports a mini light brown belt around her skirt.
Powers and Abilities
- Banshee Wail: She has a "wail" or a scream of a banshee, also can be referred to as a banshee's yell. It is also known as shrieking. This is yet to be heard or seen in the cartoon series or TV specials, though.
- Intangibility: Like all ghosts in the ghost world she is intangible and she is able to pass through solid objects.
- Flight: Like all ghosts she is able to fly.
- Immortality: Like all ghosts she is immortal.
- Telepathy: She has an ability to ready other people's minds by reading their feelings and imagination, not just the words they say in their heads. Scarah also did not come with this power as a banshee, but only because she went to "Telepathy Camp".
Scarah is the daughter of the Banshee, her mother, which in Irish mythology, is a powerful monster female spirit (in Monster High, a ghost) which in the language, Old Irish, was known as "woman of the mounds". Her mother is a female spirit which in Ireland and parts of Scotland, is a monster who heralds the death of a member of one of the prominent Gaelic families, usually by shrieking or keening. For her profile, Scarah says under "Parents:" that her monster parent is "The bean sí (Banshee)". The name "bean sí" is the Old Irish language name for "Banshee", as it seems. Her mother is known more commonly to Scaremerican (American) monsters as "Banshee" in English.
Scarah is good friends with Hoodude Voodoo, who has a locker near her. Scarah likes Hoodude, because he is a good listener, and Hoodude, being a sensitive soul, just appreciates all positive attention he gets.
In the Spring 2012 issue of Teen Scream, she says that she has a boyfriend, but his identity was never revealed and a year later, she was single again. Her new crush was Invisi Billy, whom she hooked up with in "Scarah-Voyant" and is certainly dating him in the doll diaries, as shown by Invisi Billy's 'New Scaremester' diary, where Invisi Billy introduces both her and Catty Noir as his BFFs.
