Scarah Screams, previously a background character, was one of three characters to have had a prototype doll displayed at San Diego Comic-Con International 2011, the other two being Wydowna Spider and Headless Headmistress Bloodgood. There, Mattel issued a contest, giving fans the choice to vote on their favorite to become the next Monster High doll featured at the Californian-based event. Having won the vote, Scarah was the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con International exclusive doll.
She is voiced in English by Erin Fitzgerald.
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 she is not self-centered.
Scarah Screams has unusual white eyes, without discernible pupils or irises. She has a black hair, worn in a 60's mod fashion, with a lime green Alice band. Her skin is a pale blue to greenish tone--not dissimilar to Frankie's--and she has blue to greenish lips. In the cartoon, Scarah is depicted wearing a lime green halter top with an olive green mini-skirt, and matching Alice band. The prototype doll also wears a baseball-style jacket, in black with hot pink trim.
She also has a light Irish accent, fitting with her history. Her choice of color also ties into Ireland, which is called "The Emerald Isles".
The Banshee is an Irish female spirit, who announces the death of someone. According to various legends, the Banshee can be seen by a body of water, washing a burial shroud, while crying out into the night. It is said that whoever possesses this article of clothing will be the one who is likely to die soon. She can appear in a number of different forms, such as a young girl, a lady, and an old witch. According to a story, a Irish king named Brian O'Bua saw a Banshee. He walked through the woods, and saw an old woman washing clothes, which were covered with blood, and she was crying. The next day, Brian was found dead in his tent. This would have happened around the year 1000 A.D. Since then, people have often heard the bloodcurdling cry of the Banshee, the night before a family member or friend died.
It is said that if someone heard the cry of the Banshee, they will not die, but if they didn't hear it, they will be next.
Scarah is the daughter of the Banshee.
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.
Despite quitting the Fear Squad, she is still friends with Cleo, as shown in "I Scream, You Scream."
In the Spring 2012 issue of Teen Scream, she says that she has a boyfriend, but it's unknown who he is.
Scarah has been a background character a lot in the cartoon. In "New Ghoul @ School," and "Scream Building," she is shown to be a member of the Fear Squad, though she quit the team in the later webisode, because Cleo wasn't being appreciative of her team's efforts.

New Ghoul @ SchoolEdit
Scarah can be seen walking past a couple of backgrounders. Later, she can be seen behind Frankie, when she makes her first impression in Monster High, and walks past Frankie thrice after that. She can be seen in the crowd passing Frankie multiple times. On Tuesday, before the start of class, she is talking to the dark circles boy. During Mr. Lou Zarr's class, she is seen listening, and soon sleeping. After the bell rings, she is walking out of the class, as Mr. Lou Zarr bores himself to sleep. She later passes Draculaura and Frankie, when Draculaura says she can't date until she's 1700, and again before the zombie flash mob. On Wednesday, she walks past Frankie, after the two-headed boy signs the list. During lunch, when Frankie tried to look for a table, she looked at her, and took her lunch to leave. She was one of the fearleaders on the Monster High Fear Squad, who performed the routine for the candidates, for the squad's sole unoccupied spot. When Frankie imagines being her dream self, Scarah can be seen in the crowd twice, cheering as she sings. After Clawdeen and Draculaura tell Frankie that Cleo is giving her a second chance, she can be seen with the two backgrounders. After Frankie says "be ready," Scarah is seen talking to a backgrounder. On Thursday, she is talking to two backgrounders, as Frankie comes to Monster High. At the creepateria, she was eating lunch with some backgrounders, but she suddenly appears in her fearleading outfit, and is in formation, while waiting for Frankie. As Frankie arrives, she moves out of the way. After Cleo says she saw something interesting in Frankie, she can be seen in the background with some backgrounders. As Cleo says "Justin rules!," she, along with the rest of the Fear Squad look at her in surprise, she can also be seen in the background, and again as Frakie talks about Deuce, after Cleo says boyfriend. Afterwards, she is one of the ghouls that got pushed by Cleo, after the interview. She, along with the other fearleaders, is shocked that Cleo is mad at Deuce. She is seen again, as Frankie enters the halls, talking to a backgrounder. On Friday, she is in the crowd of monsters, as they watch Justin Biter start singing, and again she can be seen twice.
In "Hiss-teria," she passes Frankie, Clawdeen, Draculaura, Lagoona, and Cleo in the halls, when they talk about Deuce and Operetta.
In "Creepfast Club," Scarah is among the students electrified by Frankie when she sneezes, and later she can be seen when Frankie enters the classroom.
In "Undo the Voodoo," she helps Clawdeen and Frankie with HooDude in her first official role, speaking and all; away from being a backgrounder.
In "Scare-born Infection," after Romulus passes the cooties to Jackson, he complains that now not only he is a normie, but he also has cooties. He tries to walk away, but slips on a couple of books. Scarah is one of the students who dodges Jackson, until he hits Cleo, who now has the cooties.
In "Boo Year's Eve," she is seen talking to Invisi Billy at the party.
