Zo (by Heath Luck and Aurox)
Zoey Redbird is the main heroine and protagonist of the House of Night Series and the favorite of Nyx who has been gifted with all elements. She completes the Change in Redeemed.
Zoey has Cherokee features, much like her grandmother. Her skin is oil-shaded as stated in Marked and her long dark hair is smooth; As discovered in Hidden, her eyes are brown. She has a filled in mark and her tattoos are speeding on her body - something incredibly rare since the known vampires are usually gifted with tattoos that are only on their faces and not another part of their body, this could be an indication towards her favoritism from Nyx.
A new marked fledgling at the Tulsa House of Night, Zoey is no ordinary fledgling. She was greatly gifted by her goddess with special tattoos, a filled-in mark, and a strong affinity for spirit; Despite being favored by Nyx and receiving extra-attention, Zoey just wishes to fit-in and not be a "main attraction in a freak show." She suffers from IBS which is pointed out a lot during the series. She has a tendency towards a rather childish behavior, such as using made up words frequently to avoid curse words, and sing the "Psaghetti Song" she came up with in the age of nine. Zoey is not a perfect person, and is aware of that, and she feels overwhelmed and guilt after messing up or hurting those she cares for. When the nerd herd told her to avoid The "Hag From Hell", she did, but after awhile she didn't care about what they thought because she could see through Aphrodite's spiteful-masc before anyone else did, showing empathy and slight naivety towards someone who was once her enemy and later a friend she has lots of appreciation for(I.e, in Chosen, Tempted, Revealed, and Redeemed).
Zoey Redbird was born as Zoey Montgomery to Linda and Paul Montgomery. Her father left Zoey and her family when Zoey was a child. Her mother re-married John Heffer, (Zoey calls him the 'Step Loser'). As a result of that marriage, Zoey was moving further away from her family and the only family member she still considered herself close to was her grandmother, Sylvia Redbird. Upon arrival to the house of night, she renamed herself Zoey Redbird. She spent several years with her on-off boyfriend and childhood friend Heath Luck, and her human ex-best-friend Kayla. According to Zoey, her older sister and younger brother pretended to like their step-father leading her mom to believe that they were happy.
Zoey's relationship with her mother seemed to be the best thing in the whole world--except three years before Marked. Linda married the Step Loser, John Heffer. She seems to have changed completely and doesn't support her daughter anymore on any of her choices. She uses John to make her decisions for her and hides behind him like a coward.
Paul was originally her real dad but he had abandoned her when she was an infant for an unknown reason thus resulting her mom's marriage with Zoey's "Step-Loser".
John is the worst thing that ever happened to human Zoey. He completely ruined her life. He took her mom away from her and he always got her in trouble with her mother. When Zoey was Marked, he blamed it on her bad behavior and karma. He often tries to embarrass Zoey, in any way he possibly can.
Zoey and her grandmother, Sylvia, are extremely close. Zoey's grandmother often called her U-we-tsi-a=ge-ya, the cherokee word for daughter. When Zoey was first Marked in Marked, she went straight to her grandmother's lavender farm, after her mom wouldn't help, because she knew her grandmother would know what to do. Sylvia then took her to the House of Night where Zoey begins her journey. They are very close and loving towards each other and Sylvia is very wise. She's seen helping Zoey and her friends throughout the books. Sylvia has also passed down her Cherokee beliefs to Zoey.
Stevie Rae Johnson
Stevie Rae was the first fellow fledgling close to Zoey when she moves to the House of Night. In Marked and Betrayed, Stevie Rae and Zoey grow very close. When Stevie Rae's body rejects the Change in Betrayed, Zoey is completely devastated. But in Chosen, Zoey realizes she must help an undead Stevie Rae gain her humanity back. Zoey does just that causing her to keep secrets from her best friends. Stevie Rae changes into a completely new vampyre: a Red Vampyre. In Untamed, Zoey unearths Neferet's creations to the school. In Hunted, Stevie Rae helps banish Kalona, along with the help of Aphrodite LaFont, Sister Mary Angela, and Sylvia Redbird. Once Zoey first found out Stevie Rae was dating Rephaim, a Raven Mocker, her shock was immediate but clearly did not last so long as her obvious trust in Stevie Rae helped Zoey make her final decision- accepting Rephaim's request to be on their side. Zoey and Stevie Rae have a very strong trust for each other that never once in the entire series evaporated.
Zoey's BFF since childhood, the two have enemies once Zoey got marked since her attraction for Heath Luck made her want to get Zoey out of the way. Heath tells Zoey in Chosen that Kayla started to hang out "the bitch squad"(this is how Heath and his group of friends now call Kayla and the rest of her group) ever since she got marked.
Shaunee Cole and Erin Bates
Zoey shares a calm & easy-going relationship with the 'twins'. They seem to trust and care for each other very much. Shaunee and Erin also agree that Zoey has a messed up fashion sense.
In Marked and Betrayed Zoey and Aphrodite could not stand each other. But as it became more apparent that the Goddess Nyx wanted them to work together, they've become close--but unusual--friends. Aphrodite may put on a shallow look, but Zoey can see right through it and can tell Aphrodite is actually a sweet, sensitive girl. But she'd never admit that!
Damien is another one of Zoey's best friends and is also a part of her inner circle. He is openly gay and has an affinity for air. Their relationship is shown to be quite close, as after Stevie Rae and occasionally Aphrodite, Zoey is shown to trust Damien the most. They are always there for each other as shown when he comforts her following the death of Heath, and she comforts him following the death of Jack. Whenever Zoey needs help about the Vampyre Society, she turns to Damien as he is the smartest one out of the whole gang.
Jack is another openly gay character and is Damien's boyfriend. He was the former roommate of Zoey's ex-boyfriend Erik Night. He became fast friends with Zoey and the gang through Damien, but apart from that he is the most loyal and innocent person to have in their life. He is also a part of her inner circle as he has an affinity for technology. Whenever the gang has a technical problem or task, they turn to him. However, in the book Awakened, Jack dies, as he was killed by Neferet. In the aftermath of his death, the gang mourn for him, especially Damien and Erik, to which Zoey comforts them.
“ Lots of answers flitted through my mind: he was my problem-my pain in the butt-my lover-my Consort-my rock-my forever boyfriend. ”
