Audra and her family live in a town called Highgrave where an old graveyard stands high on a hill that overlooks the whole town. She also heard that the people buried in the graveyard have become restless, angry ghouls who cannot sleep, so they rise up from their graves at night and look down at the houses below them. Audra was never up the hill at night, but she hardly took the legend seriously.
Later at school, her friend Spencer Kassimir read an article that he wrote about the graveyard, which Audra thought was pretty good, while Frank Foreman made a mockery of it. Spencer couldn't quite finish in time, but their teacher, Mrs. Webster told Audra and her classmates that they would go on a hike to the graveyard to "summon the ghouls". Audra had also invited Spencer to a dance at a place where she takes dance lessons. However, unbeknownst to her, Spencer was not looking forward to going because he hated to dance.
Audra is smart, enthusiastic, and kind. She does not let her beauty get into her head. Unlike Spencer, Audra never took the legends regarding the graveyard seriously. However, this opinion changes when her body is possessed by Martin.
Spencer has a crush on Audra, but it is never established if Audra knows about Spencer's feelings towards her. It is possible that Audra likes Spencer because she always smiles at him and invited him to a dance,
Audra is twelve years old, Caucasian, tall and pretty with long black hair, beautiful olive skin and the most amazing eyes which are green, flecked with gold.
