Cast & Crew Edit
Voice Cast Edit
"Leah Williams" Edit
The half-sister of Paranormal Investigator Extraordinaire Johnny Ghost, Jackie was separated from her family in late 1993 after the first Cardboard Friend/Jimmy Casket encounter (which she would later witness first-hand as a near-adult after being sent back in time during the Scratchman incident) and sent off to a children's home under the alias Leah Williams to prevent her brother from tracking her down. She was never comfortable with adoption, however, and she would return to North Carolina 13 years later in order to discover what happened to her original family. It was this search for answers that would lead her to her brother's old friend Johnny Toast and the Paranormal Investigators Extraordinaire. Whilst not initially interested in ghost-hunting, she stayed on in the hope that it would reunite her with her missing brother - which, as it later transpired, it would (see Business Unusual). After essentially retiring in 2009 - shortly before her brother's reappearance and "revival" of PIE, she spent a few years on the road with her then-boyfriend, Ben. She was forced back into the Paranormal Investigation business, however, after the death of California branch's frontman Johnny Coast and the disappearance of Ben and her brother.
An avid PIE fan with a longtime ambition of joining the team, Wolverton was originally brought in as an intern to the North Carolina branch of PIE. However, he was transferred to the California division some time later.
In 2013, a storm whisked Samantha away into another universe. The storm was generated by an experiment being conducted at a nearby research facility in the mountains. The unique quantum resonance of the device created a rift in the space-time continuum and caused atmospheric anomalies that led to the deaths of more than thirty people, including many members of Samantha's family. Samantha herself fell into this interstitial breach and became trapped in a parallel universe for more than two years before being recovered by a PIE exploratory mission into an identical spacetime event in the vicinity of Utah. Samantha remains traumatized by her experiences and refuses to discuss them with anyone.
Despite being killed in action, Coast is still an active member of the PIE team as a level 5 Poltergeist.
A childhood friend of Johnny Ghost during his school years and a founding member of Ghost's first PIE team, Pit left at some point before 2014.
Jason is a paranormal investigator who worked with field agent Maddie. During a mission Maddie was brutally murdered by a creature known as "i", which led to Jason's brief resignation from active duty. He now continues to work at PIE in Maddie's honour, but is now terrified of the thought of meeting the same fate.
Phillipa Wolfgang Edit
Despite being a very driven, work-minded person and being unfocused and uneasy outside of this, Phillipa is very protective of her friends and can hold her own in intense situations.
A seemingly normal 20-something who is interested in the paranormal, he is Jason's best friend and new partner after Maddie's death.
Jaron Rustwell Edit
An extradimensional telepathic eldritch abomination the team has "contained" that occasionally influences outside minds to its will.
Minor characters Edit
Johnny Toast - the second half of the North Carolina PIE team, Toast occasionally drops messages and Skype chats on Ghost's sister. Following Ghost's disappearance he is imprisoned in his own dreamstate and his identity is briefly adopted by his brother Gavin.
- The title was originally P.I.E. East Coast as a reference to the similarly-titled Avengers comic book series. However it was changed after it was realised that California is on the West Coast and North Carolina is on the East.
- The series is a spiritual successor to Starbuggers.
