Cast

  • Jackie is the researcher. She tends to get nervous easily, but in some episodes she has proven to be very brave, and finds herself especially pulled by the paranormal activities. Once, she found a spirit that shared her name. She is in between a skeptic and believer, but is maybe about 60% believer 40% a skeptic. She researches extra or additional information that may help the group come to a certain conclusion. She is 16 years old, and owns a horse. Jackie is also good friends with KC and usually goes on sweeps with her.
  • KC is the case manager. She is the person who gets to make the final decision on where they should go. Unlike Riley, she is not skeptical and has been quoted as jumping to conclusions. She is also easily scared; freaking out to any strange sight or noise. KC is 16 years old. She has said haunted more than anybody on the team. Despite being frightened easily, she still goes forward, even though she's horrified. She's maybe 90% believer 10% a skeptic. On The Othersiders website she says things about each of her friends:

Riley: "Riley is one of my best friends that I've known forever. He's my go-to-guy for everything." Sam: "Sam is super nice and he always has a smile on his face." Jackie: "Jackie is really fun. I'm glad she's on the team so I'm not the only girl." Zack: "Zack is the cutest little brother ever. He tries hard in everything he does."

  • Riley is the lead investigator. He is skeptical about ghosts and, according to KC, will always try to find some logical explanation to counter a piece of evidence. He is 16 years old and quoted to being the bravest member on the team. He is also supposedly the oldest of the group because he is always the driver of their Ford Flex. Riley is supposedly 85% skeptic and 15% believer.
  • Sam is the webmaster of the group. He posts up evidence that they have collected online for the viewers to make their own conclusions on a specific case. Sam is about half a skeptic and half a believer. He is 14 years old. He's maybe 55% believer 45% skeptic
  • Zack is the tech manager of the team. He displays knowledge by using and understanding his tech gear. He describes himself as a 'techie'. Zack is 13 years old. He has said "not haunted" more that anybody on the team even though Riley is the main skeptic. 1 of the main resend he doesn't think it's haunted as much because he mainly stays at base camp. NOTE: In the Q and A's (Questions and Answers), Riley stated that Zack was scared easily, but later in the series, in the L.A. Power Plant, he goes on a solo sweep of the tunnel that grown men were afraid to go in, and he spends more time outside of base camp. He's 50% a believer and 50% a skeptic.
