simple white cartoony ghost

Name: Garvey Ghost

Appearance: Level 1

Garvey Ghost is often seen as shy because he likes to hide deep in the fog of the cemetery. He usually comes out to haunt after dark when the full moon shines off his pale skin. Unlike other ghosts, Garvey has vampire-like fangs, and he isn’t afraid to bite. Beware of this boo!

Name: Banks “the bounce” Spider

Appearance: Level 2

The only thing worse than a spider is a spider who knows how to jump, and you can be sure that Banks “the bounce” never skips leg day. Flexing all 8 and charging forward with two horns on top of his head, this little guy isn’t to be trusted. Watch out because he is fast and furious!

Name: Radley Bat

Appearance: Level 3

Radley likes to raddle cages and scare the heebie-jeebies out of anyone in his path. Like other bats, his eyes are shot but his teeth are sharp. He has hidden talons at the tips of his wings that can slice and dice with the best of them. Look out Julia Child, there is a new chef in town.

Name: Hazi

Appearance: Level 4

It only takes one look at Hazi, short for “hazardous”, to understand how he earned his name so many years ago. Toxic to the core, he oozes clouds of chemicals that can even penetrate top-of-the-line gasmasks. If he is spotted, it means it’s time to run!
