Charlton Character Art

After confronted by Tara Normal, Charlton shows his true colors and precedes to raise an army of the dead to destroy Tara and take over the world.


Holly Weird is a vampire, the first in this series, and a Hollywood producer. Her show, Ghost Soldiers, has become a thorn in the side of Tara Normal. Since Tara turned down a starring role on the pandering paranormal reality show, Holly has been looking to bring her down. She may have found her answer in Charlton, a necromancer whose power is only matched by his thirst for fame. The world in turmoil equals ratings for Holly so it’s in her best interest that Tara loses the paranormal war.
