Velma Dinkley is the smartest member of Mystery Inc.


  • She has a large home with at least one servant, where she maintains a Mystery Museum with a collection of costumes and other memorabilia from their old cases.[1]


Early history

The fanzine Mystery Inc. Insider claimed that Velma as a child used to dress up as the superhero "Crime-Smacker." (There was no evidence of this other than this one unreliable source).[2]

Some of Velma Dinkley's high-school years were at a different school from the others, one that she calls her "alma mater." The successful basketball team there is called the Devils. Velma had detention at that school once (and only once) for getting into a fight with a boy named Mickey Murphy after an "overheated debate" between the math club and the science club. She apparently won the fight, because she said his pocket protector didn't protect him very well.[3]

She seemed to have also attended and graduated from the high school where Principal Weathers was in charge, because all of the gang are called "celebrity graduates" from there.[4] This school was Coolsville High School, which was the "alma mater" of Shaggy Rogers.[5]



  • Velma has an aunt named Dahlia Pinkney, a successful computer game developer with a bowling alley in her home.[6]
  • Velma has an Aunt Selma, who runs a dog obedience school.[7]
  • Tavish MacDougal is Velma's third cousin twice removed. He owns a large hotel he built himself, that looks like a Scottish castle.[8]
  • Viveka Von Dinkley was Velma's great aunt, and she lived in a castle in Germany. Velma was called there for the reading of her will after she passed away.[9]
  • Velma almost burned her glasses at a ceremony to release precious material things. "These vintage glasses mean an awful lot to me. They belonged to Nana," she thought.[10]


  • In third grade, Velma was friends with a girl named Missy, and helped her put on a puppet show.[11]
