With credit, sure you can use him.
Okay, thanks, Cluedokid, and can I borrow Captain Seafoam and Princess Emerald?

Hmm alright, just credit I guess. Good luck with it.

Also, Captain Seafoam was originally PrinceAzure33's character. We had a bit of drama over that at the time.

One of the things that came up in my crossover project was that Dr. Orchid didn't have a first name, at least not an "official" one that I could find. The rest of the suspects were given one at some point, and some had several through the various editions. So, I read up on orchids to see if one with a similar color could pass as a name and found Laelia. Sounds unique and sophisticated, so I went with it. I suppose my version of the official character would still be filed under the fan section.

I struggled with figuring out a first name, too. I'm still salty that Hasbro never gave her an official standard name. Initially I gave her Dr. Evelyne 'Eve' Orchid, but after some consideration and suggestions it was narrowed between Dr. Andrea Orchid and Dr. Alessia Orchid.
I went Andrea because I felt she fit 1986/VCR Miss Scarlet who I see as her portrayal.

I love seeing the alternate names fans and forum members give the characters. It's always so refreshing to step away from boring old Blanche White and Peter Plum

But Beryl Crabtree was a Hasbro character, not a fan-made one.

Sorry I've been a bit slow all, Zaffre and Crabtree have been added.

I'm considering adding a short character description to each official character, as have been given to all fan characters - do you all thing this would be a good idea or a cluttering mess?

Technically yes, she's a fan-made character, but she's still an interpretation of an official character. If we covered every version of Mrs. White or Colonel Mustard on the forum, this page would go on forever!!
No, this is more to introduce the basic ideas of the characters, not be conclusive to every existing version. But it's good of you to bring this up, that's an important point to touch on.

It would be nice to have a separate thread for ONLY official characters that could hypothetically exist side-by-side in a Cluedo Universe (not counting international editions since they can't exist side-by-side). If you do that, I'd love the short description. If you try to do it in the current post, I think it'll be way too much.

Added the newest additions, added a new section for Cluedo animals. Decided to put in bios for all canon characters as well, as best I could anyways.
