Lena Dupree was a werecat, and an employee of Simone Lenoir at a Louisiana plantation house on an island called Moonscar Island.

Physical appearance

Lena was a tanned Caucasian female with black hair and brown pupils. She wore a red bandana, and a red vest and skirt. Due to her immortality, she remained young (in her early twenties) and beautiful.


At first, Lena acted very sweet and charming. She was also very helpful and loyal to Simone.

But in truth, Lena was remorseless and conniving. She was tasked with luring outsiders to the island to be drained. She flirts with Fred at the market to convince him and the gang to come to the island. She later acts in distress to get Fred (and the gang) to go down the passageway and into the dungeon.

After transforming, she gloatingly hissed at Fred. When Simone mentioned how it sometimes became necessary for Lena to lure outsiders to the island, she mockingly seconded, "I've had years of practice!"

Unlike Simone, though, Lena actually showed concern for Jacques when she heard that he was in danger.

Powers and abilities

She could turn into a werecat, and she was immortal as long as she kept draining life from others. Like Simone, she seems to have some knowledge of using "magic wax" to create voodoo dolls to restrain victims.


Early life

Lena and Simone as settlers

Lena and Simone as settlers.

Lena (with Simone) was a settler in the 1700s. Morgan Moonscar and his crew attacked the village and chased them all into the alligator-infested bayou, except Lena and Simone, who hid. They "uttered a curse" on the pirates to the cat god seeking revenge. The cat god transformed them into cat creatures, who drained the pirates. But Lena and Simone discovered afterwards that they were also cursed, and had to drain victims' life force to survive.

For the next 200 years, Lena lured visitors to the island. They granted Jacques immortality in exchange for ferrying victims to the island. At midnight, the unlucky visitors would be drawn into a chamber underneath the house where their souls would be drained by Simone, Lena, and Jacques turning them into zombies. The souls would then be used to preserve the cat creatures' immortality.

Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island

Lena Dupree (full werecat form)

Full transformation.

While at the market, she heard Mystery Inc.'s conversation about trying to find a real ghost, and invited them to Moonscar Island, telling them it was haunted. They agreed, as Fred instantly became smitten with her. She brought them on Jacques's ferry, which took them to the island, followed by a ride to Moonscar Mansion. Once Simone let them stay, Lena served them all lemonade, as the gang investigated. Fred complimented her on her lemonade. She also served dinner, and Fred was full of more compliments.



Lena: Sorry, Freddie. I really do like you.
