Detailed History:


2 duffel bags given to him by his late grandfather, Dr. Jonah Carter: One is a faded, beat-up red leather bag c. 1918, with old buckles & latches, the other is a dust-covered green canvas with a sneaker company logo on the side. Neither bag looks like something anyone would want to steal. Inside are several “relics & treasures” that Dr. Carter “plundered” from various site all over the globe but never reported. Most of these items will be determined later. For now, we know of a bracelet with a mysterious stone set in silver & matching amulet strung on a fine gold chain.

•No matter how burnt, scorched or inedible his cooking turns out, Max still persists in the thought that he can cook.

•Doesn’t know that “Fred” is Ferdinand in human form.

Other Notes:

•Feels as compelled as his grandfather did to find certain forgotten places & take the “treasures” from them for safe keeping. Considers himself a guardian of the “relics” as his grandfather did.


•Max is in constant sibling rivalry war with his sister, Alicia. They are constantly playing practical jokes and such to get back at each other. It’s unclear how this “war” started. Their mother is aware of this battle but her efforts to put a stop to it are always thwarted.


•Max isn’t one of those guys who go nuts over cars, but he sure loves this one. Sure, it’s beat up, gets lousy gas mileage and he’s constantly under the hood fixing something, but c’mon! ’71 was the last year of the super sport! He can rattle of every stat for this model of Camaro.

What Max thinks about the other characters:

Odile: “I try not to think about Odile. It keeps me from having nightmares.”

Amelia: “She’s a sweet girl, but I wonder when she’s ever gonna grow up.”

Ferdinand: “Sometimes he’s scary, mostly he’s annoying.”

Miles: “Dude, I’m your best bud. Got your back, but we gotta get you away from that Playstation and get you a chick.”

Alicia, his sister: “I’m gonna get her back for that whipped cream & Preparation-H stunt she pulled on me last summer!”

Ms. Vry: “So our hall director sucks blood. I thought all people who worked for the University did that eventually.”

Grandfather von Creepenstein:

Silas: “He’s an ok guy.”

Nikki: “If she touches me again, I’m gonna stake her.”

Moth: “And I thought Odile was strange…”

“Fred,” (Ferdinand in human form): “Not a bad guy. Weird hair, though.”

Cockroach Liberation Army: “Where’s the Raid?”

Rash Ember: “Just keep him from teaching Miles how to pick up chicks & we’ll be alright.”

Helen Pfender, Library Dean: “She’s pretty cool for an old lady.”



Grandmother Majors: “Sure, Granny, I’d love to stay for dinner! Can I have the recipe?”

Grandfather Majors:

Grandfather Carter: “I miss that old cuss. No one told dirty jokes quite like him.”
