Mackenzie and Clover are sisters, with Mackenzie being older. Piper is Nikki's older cousin. Lila and Marlee are sisters by adoption, with Marlee being older.


Zaira Joy Yumiko
Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
Age Group: Older

Zaira runs this blog, although over time it has become more and more of a collective project between her and her friends. She loves fashion, and through a fashion journalism project for her school communications class, she stumbled across a love for writing and sharing stories as a whole, prompting her to start Worldwide Dolls. She's on the school yearbook team (the head editorial editor!) and wants to be a journalist when she gets older. Zaira's family is from Japan.

(Lila is TrulyMe #58)


Claudia Bronwyn Kishi
Hogwarts House: Gryffindor

Claudia loves art and every piece of clothing she owns is covered in paint splatters. She can be messy and is a daydreamer, she is not very good at schoolwork but her creativity more than makes up for it. Claudia likes every color in the rainbow. She has already been scheduled to have her art featured in a local gallery! In addition, Claudia also loves fashion from the '40s, '50s, and '60s. Her parents are both teachers at Cedar Middle School, and Claudia is of Cuban and Chinese-American descent.

Georgia Aisling McKenzie
Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff
Age Group: Younger

Georgia feels that she has grown a lot in the past year after coming out at her new school as transgender, having previously been bullied at her old school and in her old group of "friends". Someday, she hopes to be a singer-songwriter, and at the moment she plays the flute and the guitar. She also enjoys learning about Irish culture, since her family is from Ireland--she even takes Celtic dancing lessons. Georgia is half-sisters with Eve.

(Georgia is Truly Me #61 with a CYO curly red wig and light freckles all over her face)


Gwendolyn Mary Carlisle
Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw
Age Group: Younger

Called Gwen by most everyone, Gwendolyn is a daydreamer sort of girl who loves fairies and magic, and enjoys sewing her own clothes. Gwen is diagnosed with Takayasu’s Arteritis, a rare disease most common in teen girls and women that causes damage to the aorta, the main artery that delivers blood from your heart to the rest of your body. Fortunately, Gwen was diagnosed early in her life and the disease is under control by medication and no longer poses a threat to her everyday life. However, this is a chronic illness, meaning that you don't just "get better", and because of the medication she takes, it often makes her extremely fatigued. As a result, Gwendolyn often uses a wheelchair or a set of canes to get around without being in pain or feeling extremely tired. Gwen's family is originally from Australia.

(Gwendolyn is a Nellie doll.)


Ramona Camille Parkington
Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
Age Group: Younger

Ramona enjoys "retro" kinds of things like record players, polaroids, and roller skates, and she likes to go thrift shopping when she gets the chance. Ramona works at a riding stable in the summer and grooms the horses! She is very outgoing and is often the one who gathers friends together to go to events and hang out. Someday Ramona would like to be a textile designer and hopes to go to art school.

(Ramona is a BeForever Samantha doll)


Clementine Louisa Arnold
Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
Age Group: Younger

 Clementine loves being in nature, and she also loves summer- it's when she feels most free and herself. She is on the school swim team and loves everything to do with the ocean. Clementine is of Welsh and Ethiopian descent.

(Clementine is Truly Me #26.)


Jayne Thomas
Hogwarts House: Slytherin
Age Group: Older

Jayne is the school's ringleader--she has every boy wrapped around her finger, and plenty of the girls, too. Jayne doesn't have a best friend, and she doesn't really mind. She's found that the more attention you get, the more you savor your time outside of the spotlight. Jayne is a cheerleader, and she was recently on the school's homecoming court. She's also in the school band, she plays the flute with Rosanna and Georgia. The other girls respect Jayne, but somewhat keep their distance as well--they just exist in different circles.


Rosanna Maeve Fisher
Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw
Age Group: Older

Rosanna feels like she can communicate a thousand times better in writing than she can by speaking. She tends to keep to herself, and while she does well in school, she spends her days anticipating the moment she can tuck herself away in her attic bedroom or in one of her many forest hideaways to write poems and stories. She is an only child and lives with her parents on a small farm, where they have chickens and a huge garden. She is quiet, and her best friends are her pet chickens and her cat. She loves to observe the other girls and imagine their lives but has always been an outsider of her own choosing. Rosanna plays the flute.

(Rosanna is a Gotz Little Sisters Tess Doll)


Elijah Franklin Wright
Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw
Age Group: Older

Elijah is quiet and has been dealt a bit of a rough lot in life. He works at George's Grocery and has always been homeschooled, so he doesn't really know many of the other kids his age on the island. He would probably consider Piper to be his best friend, although he is quickly becoming closer with Rosanna.

(Elijah is a Marie-Grace doll with a trimmed Monique Brittany wig.)


Cécile Amelie Rey-Noelle
Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw
Age Group: Older

Cécile loves animals and writing fairy tale stories. Someday, she wants to be a writer or a veterinarian. She is quiet most of the time but isn't afraid to speak her mind or stand up for herself and others. Cécile's family is from Africa, and before she came to Cedar Island she lived in New Orleans.

(Cécile is a retired historical character Cécile Rey)


Riley Jude Murphy
Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
Age Group: Older

Riley is the adventurer of the group, she's always game to add another extreme sport to the list of those she's conquered. Whether it's rock climbing, surfing, bungee jumping, or something else equally exciting, Riley will give it a go! She's always ready to try something new. Riley always describes herself as "painfully awkward", but that also makes her approachable and she's always quick to laugh. Riley lives with her dad, since her parents are divorced and she is Jewish.

(Riley is a GOTY 2001 Lindsey Doll)

Meryl Jade McConnell
Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw
Age Group: Older

Meryl is a singer--she loves nothing more than sitting down at the keyboard and making up words to go along with a new melody. She's also played the cello since she was able to hold one as a kid, and she loves making music in any form. She's known to pull a group of the other musically-inclined girls together on the weekends to mess around with instruments in someone's garage or basement. Meryl's family is from Singapore and is originally Chinese.

(Meryl is a GOTY 2006 Jess doll.)


Mackenzie Olivia Joyce
Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
Age Group: Older

Mackenzie (Mac) is Clover's older sister. She loves filmmaking, and someday she hopes to be a director. She can be a little self-assured, something that the other girls joke must be a trait that runs among redheads in the group, with Piper being the same way, but really Mackenzie just knows what she wants and is working hard to get it. Mackenzie's family, like Piper's, and Eve and Georgia's, comes originally from Ireland.

(Mackenzie is an GOTY 2008 Mia doll.)
