Cast and CharactersEdit
Main Six CharactersEdit
- Seamus (Sterling Beaumon), Rebel without a pause, and attitude to spare. Seamus has been kicked out of three schools, and he definitely doesn't go to Lakeside Prep with the rest of the CLUE crew. He's got mad skateboard skills and gets everywhere on his deck, but free time is tight, because he works as a busboy at a hotel after school. Rumor has it Seamus runs with the Gr$$n Scene street art crew.
- Green - His house icon was on his skateboard.
- Liz (Ana Golja), Hottie with a heart of gold. She lives life with the volume cranked -- always on the move, changing plans, and somehow finding herself in the spotlight wherever she goes. But she's not totally into herself ... she's got a really good soul to match that killer smile. Oh, and check out those scarlet shades and hair! Only Liz could rock that look!
- Scarlett - Her house icon was on her necklace.
- Dmitri (Stephan James), is varsity everything, and on Lakeside's Dean's List too. Girls like him, guys want to be like him, and his dad's a major mogul, so Dmitri's whole future is mapped out.

- Mustard - His house icon was on video game screen and prom.o
- Agnes (Kendall Amyre Ferguson), is all about what's going on where, with whom, and why. She reads all the blogs and magazines, so no news gets by her. (The Eyes of the Peacock is her fave site.)

But not Agnes: She likes finding news, not making it.
- Peacock - Her house icon was on her gossip website.
- Lucas (Zach Mills), is a total brainiac, but he's no quiet nerd. His IQ's so high he's already a member of the Plum Institute. He can crack any puzzle or game, so you'd totally pick him to be your partner on a game show. Even so, he worries he's the kind of guy girls are only friends with. He'll be a huge success in a couple years, but right now, girls are one puzzle he just can't solve.
