River Styxx in "Haunted"

River Styxx is a 2014-introduced and all-around character. She is a reaper and a student at Haunted High. Although still in training, she is allowed to take over her father's duties whenever he has be elsewhere for a while.

Portrayers

River Styxx is voiced in English by Ashley Peterson.

Character

Personality

Unlike the traditional version of the Grim Reaper, River is extremely cheery, upbeat and bubbly, and loves bright colors and candy. She has a lot of energy and finds it hard to concentrate and stand still. Although, she does get evil feelings to scare other monsters.

She loves to make people laugh and smile, and is always telling stories, planning parties and fun events for others, particularly the spirits she and her father transport to the Ghost World.

River is a Reaper In Training, (R.I.P) which means she is only allowed to carry a staff around instead of a scythe.

Appearance

River has purple skin, which is transparent on her lower limbs so that her bones are visible. Her hair is blue, pink and purple. She has ghostly big blue eyes and, because she has both ghost and skeleton traits, visible lines on her mouth, to represent teeth, visible eye orbits and skeleton nose.

Relationships

Friends

River attends Haunted High, and is good friends with Vandala Doubloons, Porter Geiss, and Kiyomi Haunterly. She is also in good terms with Draculaura.

Family

River's father is the Grim Reaper, one of many responsible for transporting passed on ghosts and spirits to the Ghost World. He has a hard time dealing with his daughter, who is not what a reaper is expected to be. As a result, he might be a little strict on her.

In her diary, she mentions her father has a cousin, a former reaper who broke the rules and was punished by being banished to the real world, and now works as a high school guidance counselor. It's implied this cousin is Mr. D'eath. River's uncle is Charon, the ferryman of the dead in Greek mythology.

Pet

River has a skeleton raven, Cawtion. Her pet's name is a pun mixture of play on words of the words: "caw", as a sound a bird makes, and the word "caution".
