Ali Hadji-Heshmati plays George Karim

George (17) is Chief Researcher at Lockwood & Co. A genius and free-thinker, unburdened by the need to conform, George is happiest marching to the beat of his own drum. Fiercely intelligent, wry, eccentric, and open-minded, George acts as both a field agent with a talent for touch, and Lockwood & Co’s unrivalled researcher, ensuring the company have the edge when tracking down and facing psychic disturbances.

George doesn’t keep many close friends, but once he trusts you, he’s loyal to a fault. He’s fascinated by ‘The Problem’ and obsessed with trying to understand its origins.

Ivanno Jeremiah plays Inspector Barnes

Barnes is a Senior Inspector for DEPRAC — the government organisation assigned with tackling The Problem and overseeing the country’s psychical agencies.

Barnes is an outsider who has fought hard for his position. He has a tough, acerbic, no-nonsense exterior which belies how deeply he feels for the young agents that fall under his command.

Jack Bandeira plays Quill Kipps

Kipps is a Team Leader for Fittes — the country’s most elite psychical agency. His job is to oversee a team of teenage agents and guide them through nightly supernatural investigations.

Arrogant and officious, Kipps relishes his position of authority and experience. Kipps is locked in a bitter rivalry with Anthony Lockwood and takes any opportunity to assert his superiority.

Luke Treadaway plays The Golden Blade

The Golden Blade is a mysterious, nameless mercenary who specialises in the dark arts of high-risk, high-reward covert operations.

Handsome, erudite, and terrifyingly deft in physical combat, the Blade is a ruthless villain who operates under the radar.

Morven Christie plays Penelope Fittes

Penelope is the Head of Fittes Agency, the psychical agency founded in 1972 by her mother, Marissa Fittes. Poised, benevolent and self-possessed, Penelope is a household name who commands utmost respect.

In a society consumed with the fallout of The Problem, Penelope is at the apex of power, wealth, and influence. As the daughter of the person who first discovered The Problem, and who pioneered the techniques still used by agents to this day, Penelope wants to continue her mother’s legacy and ensure that Fittes remains the country’s leading agency.

Hayley Konadu plays Flo Bones

Flo is a former agent who now ekes out a living on the mud flats of the Thames as a relic hunter. She was an exceptional agent, until she was profoundly traumatised on a job, causing her to quit and drop out of conventional society.

Flo is wary and disillusioned with a ghost-fighting system that chews young people up and spits them out. Highly perceptive, eccentric, and recalcitrant, Flo is Lockwood’s oldest friend, the two of them having been there for one another in their darkest days. With her connections to Problem-stricken London’s underworld, Flo is a secret weapon and confidante for our heroes at Lockwood & Co.

Rhianna Dorris plays Kat Goodwin

Kat is an agent for Fittes, working under Quill Kipps. Sharp-tongued, confident, and supercilious, Kat is an incredibly talented listener able to hear the bygone echoes of a ghost’s psychic trauma.

Kat becomes a de facto rival for Lucy, a fellow listener. Pitched against one another on active investigations, Kat constantly tries to prove her technical superiority over Lucy.

Paddy Holland plays Bobby Vernon

Bobby is an agent and researcher for Fittes, working under Quill Kipps. Bookish, precocious, and snide, Bobby is a voracious academic who scours Fittes’ archives and databases to give his team an upper hand on investigations.

As a fellow researcher, Bobby is a de facto rival for George, his counterpart at Lockwood & Co. Often going head-to-head on competitive investigations, Bobby relishes any opportunity to attempt to outsmart George in a battle of wits.
