C.A. Cupid, full name Chariclo Arganthone Cupid, is the adoptive daughter of Eros, the god of love in Greek mythology. She first appeared as part of the Sweet 1600 doll line. C.A. Cupid debuted in the television special "Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love?".

Portrayers

In English, she is voiced by Erin Fitzgerald.

Character

Personality

C.A. follows in her adoptive father's footsteps as an arbiter of love and is specialized in the dealings of relationships, though primarily those of monsters with a focus on teenagers. She hosts a daily radio show from her station in the catacombs beneath Monster High, during which she takes calls on relationship problems. This is her way of doing her job, since though she does have her bow and arrows ready 24/7, she is a lousy shot. When it comes to her attitude, C.A. Cupid is carefree and joyful as love should be, but also stern and professional as a relationship sometimes needs to survive.

Appearance

C.A. Cupid has white skin which fades to black the same way Spectra does to be transparent. She has short wavy pink hair, which is fashioned to make it look like she has a halo, and aqua eyes. She wears pink lipstick on the center of her lips to make her mouth appear heart-shaped. C.A. Cupid's wings are made to look like a rib cage with a visible spine disguised as a necklace.

In Greek mythology, Eros is the god of love. In some cases, he was the son of Aphrodite, while being described as a primordial god in others. Many poets satirically portrayed him as a blindfolded child, illicitally meddling in the love affairs of mortals, usually to his own amusement. Eventually, he fell in love with a human named Psyche, and the ordeals the two had to go through to be together matured Eros into a more responsible god. Upon Eros's request, Psyche was made a goddess by Zeus.

Relationships

Family

C.A. Cupid is an unknown type of elemental, though suspected to be a bone elemental, who was left on the doorstep of Eros's temple. Why her biological parents did this, provided they were the ones to do it, and who they were is unknown. C.A. was adopted by Eros, the god of love in Greek mythology, but better known by his Roman name, Cupid. He taught her the family business and gave her wings.[1] There is a possibility that C.A.'s adoptive mother is Psyche, Eros's wife and herself a human-turned-goddess. Her favorite subject is also Psychology, which gets its name from Psyche.

Friends

She says that she is friends with any monster who is "in love with love".

Romance

In "Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love?", Cupid accidentally shot her arrow at Clawd and they fell in love until the ghouls broke the spell of the arrow. Since then, she has had no love interests.

Appearances

Volume 3

In "Boo Year's Eve", she's seen partying with the other monsters as new year comes closer.

Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love?

Cupid makes her first, and so far only, major appearance as words of wisdom to Clawd when he asks what to get her for her 1600th birthday through her radio show. The ghouls later go to her in person for help after Draculaura gets hypnotized by Valentine, to which she agrees to shoot Draculaura with one of her arrows so that she falls in love with Clawd. The plan is sabotaged by Toralei and backfires horribly when C.A. Cupid accidentally hits herself and Clawd with the arrows and fall madly in love. It is found out that the spell could be broken if the bow was smashed, to which the ghouls agree to do at Draculaura's party, but before they could accomplish it, Toralei steals it and fires it off at random, causing havoc. The bow is eventually broken and Cupid and Clawd are free from their spell. She returns to her radio show, though now does it with Abbey Bominable, who had taken over in Cupid's absence.

Escape From Skull Shores

She appears at the Spring Break carnival receiving her fortune "If you do all your homework... I see an A in your future..." from Headless Headmistress Bloodgood's Fortune telling booth.

Ghouls Rule

She appears walking to school just before the De Nile servants come. Later in the party at the Hall of Halloween she was dancing with the others and again on the stairs.
