* Physical appearance.
Jed Leland fought for the Union in the American Civil War. He is the brother of Caleb Leland and 'great-great-granduncle' of Lorelei and Taylor Leland. A ghost projection and costume was based on his picture, to boost Crawdad Mike's business.
Jed is a Caucasian male with long brown hair and black eyes. He wears the uniform of a Union soldier, as he joined the Northern side of Civil War. He is also shorter than he brother Caleb, which was a clue to whether his ghost was real or not.
Not much is known about his character other than his extreme hatred for his own brother. It eventually came to the point where he had a duel with him in the graveyard.
The real Jed Leland fought a duel with his brother Caleb, who supported the South. Both died as a result of the duel.
What's New, Scooby-Doo?
The ghost of Jed Leland was actually a holographic projection, and also the disguise of Crawdad Mike's bus driver. Crawdad wanted to make his Rattletrap bus tours more exciting and attract more tourists. He did so by driving the bus onto a hidden switch in the graveyard of Leland Gables and activating a holographic projection. When the gang got too close, Crawdad and his driver dressed up in costumes as Rebel Caleb and Union Jed, respectively, to kidnap Daphne Blake and turn the detectives away.
- Considering the brothers look identical, they may be twins.
- There was a mistake made by Velma Dinkley on which Leland brother was which after the culprits were arrested. She stated that Jed was taller than Caleb. However, it was the other way around.
