Gooliope Jellington is a 2015-introduced character and the daughter of unknown. She does not know who her parents are or what kind of monster she is, for she was created in a lab by a mysterious and yet unknown scientist. She is part of the Freak Du Chic line and has had a main role in the series of accompanying webisodes. She is a talented casketball player as well a part of a group of circus performers, the Freak Du Chic. She is all about acceptance and she hates when others are discriminated due to their traits or appearance, as she herself is a victim that feels bad around what she considers regular monsters.
She is voiced by Julie Maddalena Kliewer in the webisodes.
Gooliope Jellington is a shy, circus loving, ghoul. She has gold and hot pink hair that is curly. She has goo dripping down from her arms and legs.
Gooliope was created, as experiment #816 in batch #8708, in an unnamed lab by a scientist that signs as R.S. The scientist thought that a lab wasn't the right place to raise a baby, considering that as an experiment she would be constantly tested on. So Gooliope was left as a baby in a jar at a traveling circus. Adopted by the ringmaster and his wife, she started to grow and grow until she outgrew the jar and was eventually put inside the circus tent, where she grew both in size and in age, cared for by the circus crew. Since then, she has helped on shows and participated in some herself, but is also on a mission to find her heritage, since she doesn't know much about it. Eventually she came across Monster High on one of the circus stops and became a student while the circus is on break.
Gooliope is a shy girl, who gets nervous easily, especially outside her Scarnival environment, which is where she feels most comfortable and accepted. While she doesn't mind being looked at during shows, since that's her job, she is very self-concious when people look at her outside the circus world, since she considers herself an oddity to other monsters.
Gooliope is extremely passionate about circus life and the arts. Born for that life, Gooliope acts like she is performing a show, even when she isn't. Moving from place to place doing stunts, Gooliope is so attached to the Scarnival life that she barely notices her behaviors. She herself said that, when separated from the life of the circus, that the world becomes grey.
Gooliope is very encouraging of other monsters who wish to pursue and enjoy the arts, even arranging a circus at Monster High as a fundraiser to prevent art classes from being cancelled due to budget constraints, and later offering kind advice to the monsters performing in the circus when they are discouraged.
Though normally pleasant, Gooliope can be intimidating when angered, causing small earthquakes around her.
Gooliope is massively tall when compared to other characters, specifically 15' 2". Her skin is pink and has a gooey texture. She has shoulder length curly hair that is yellow with pink highlights. There are radioactive warning symbols highlighting her blue eyes.
Gooliope has little special abilities, instead she has various biological occurances and possibly many others that she doesn't know of, due to her mysterious heritage.
- Disease Immunity: Due to have been created in a lab, Gooliope is immune to most diseases.
- Wobble: Whenever she gets mad, nervous or uncomfortable she wobbles like jelly or in her case gelatin, creating a small earthquake around her that causes disturbances to her surroundings.
- Flexibility: Gooliope's anatomy, that is being made of goo, as well as her circus focused childhood, makes her extra flexible and agile, so much that even without noticing, she moves by doing cartwheels and contortionisms. Her doll is also notably flexable, being the only doll who can put her hand to her mouth or forehead.
Gooliope's biological parents are unknown but currently she is the adoptive daughter of the Freak Du Chic's ringmaster and his wife. Because she does not know her 'real' family, she gets sad when she witnesses other people having fun with their families and sometimes forgets that her real family is within the Freak Du Chic crew, who have always cared for her. Despite being the daughter of the unknown, she is believed to be created in a lab.
Due to her nomadic way of life, Gooliope rarely establishes any friendships that don't involve people from her circus, who she considers great friends, and her inferiority complex does not help her break loose and gain friends. As she enrolls at Monster High and meets the ghouls she becomes friends with specifically Frankie Stein, Jinafire Long, Honey Swamp, Toralei Stripe, Twyla, and Clawdeen Wolf who helped her when her circus was in need.
