Morgan McReight, or better known as Morgan Moonscar, was a pirate captain who later returned as a zombie along with his crew.

Physical appearance

In life, McReight appeared as an old Caucasian male, with a long bushy white beard, tanned skin, and a brownish red pirate uniform with a matching hat and a rapier. He also had a moon-shaped scar around the inner side of his left eye, giving his nickname of Moonscar. As a zombie, he is much thinner to point where he is mostly skin and bones, his clothes are tattered and his rapier is rusty in numerous places.


Nothing is explicitly stated about Morgan's personality, but he certainly seems to be a typical bloodthirsty pirate captain. He murdered an entire settlement to ensure they would not get (or talk about) his buried treasure. He seemed completely ferocious and steel-hearted when he had the upper hand, but cowered in absolute horror when he and his men got attacked and killed the monstrous werecats.

After he was cursed to return to Moonscar Island as a zombie (or a spirit during the daytime) every harvest moon, Morgan Moonscar attempted to warn anyone visiting the island about Lena, Simone and Jacques so that they didn't suffer the same fate, thought it's unknown if he did this due to remorse for his atrocious past actions or out of sheer revenge against the werecats for his horrendous fate - the first possibility seems to be more concrete, since the Moonscar zombie always seems more focused on warning people and driving them off the island rather than actually attacking the cat monsters.

Powers and abilities

As a ghost, Morgan Moonscar was capable of writing on the wall with his sword, which he used to warn people of Simone, Lena, and Jacques during the day.


Early life

In the 1700s, Moonscar came ashore on an island, inhabited by a group of settlers who worship cats, to bury his treasure. To ensure that they won't find his treasure, they attacked and drove the settlers into the bayou where they were devoured by alligators. While burying his treasure, he and his crew were attacked by the only two survivors, Simone Lenoir and Lena Dupree (now cursed and turned into werecats), who killed them and absorbed their souls.

Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island

Moonscar came back as a zombie 200 years later to drive Mystery Inc. off the island, so they won't suffer the same fate as the werecats other victims. After Simone, Lena, and Jacques died, his soul was released, along with those of the other zombies, allowing them to finally rest in peace in the afterlife.
